- the world is complex and mysterious
- it changes
- we’re not big fans of change
- the world is full of joy and suffering
- other people have real lives, separate from my own
- I rely on other people, and on the world
- I am not the centre of the world
- there’s a lot to be grateful for
- through mindful writing we can access these deeper truths about ourselves and the world
It’s really wonderful to see people using writing to get closer to the world, either through writing small stones, or some other form of writing, and it feels like a real privilege to be able to open the gate to that experience for people.
I’m grateful to all of you fellow writers and travelers too. I have been inspired by so many people I’ve encountered through WOWH, from people who have made big changes in their own lives, to people who have smiled at me from across the world.
If you want to take part in one of our November e-courses, we’re giving away some free places (click here). As well as the 30 day small stone experience (Fall in Love with the World in 30 days) which costs $10, there’s also a free seven day experince: Experience the world more deeply in 7 days (write small stones).
A deep bow to you all.
