Session 9: Grow- Rosamund Zander
“We grow old, do we grow up?”
What are the rules? Can someone help?
She starts with a story of when she was auditioning for violin chair. The man stopped her half way in and offered to re-teach her entirely, starting with scales only for 2 hours a day. She was offended when she should have realized that he was doing for her something that we all need: to undo bad ways and re-do good ways of being.
She speaks of the Human Viruosi.
We need to take the graciously offered opportunities to be asked to be better than we were by ceasing to do the things we shouldn’t and learn to embrace what we can be.
There are beautiful helpful rules that she gave but she was quotable from a-z so all I can say it want to what looks like will be her next book? (I’ve read The Art of Possibility, which she wrote with her amazing husband.)
A few important points:
End the campaign for approval safety and control.
Be led by love.
Stay curious and walk in possibility.
