Am I drinking water with a fork?
This is my new transformational question, a holy grail kind of question, a forking great question!
Drinking water with a fork is obviously a difficult, inefficient, unsustainable, energy dripping thing to do. A cup’s a more sensible choice to hold water to quench thirst.
Yet I find my self engaged in activities that could definitely be likened to drinking water with a fork. Do you?
So now instead of feeling forked off or burnt out I am asking the question – am I drinking water with a fork? Is this action, thought, relationship, behaviour, habit … fork or cup? Draining or nourishing? A simple question that changes my awareness and thinking, more able to see the ridiculousness of my habits and be my own change.
A fork and a cup, images for balance, both necessary useful tools, but with very different results.
Fork and Cup
Forward and Up!
