At a meeting recently I shared some spiritual teachings from a conference I had attended. We watched a video online of the spiritual teacher working with the audience’s questions.
Frankly, neither the work nor the teacher resonated with most of my group. A few people nodded off, and at the end there were lots of clarifying questions from a few people and outright rejection from others. Only a few people appreciated both the style and substance of the teacher.
And that’s ok. My life and coaching experience have shown me definitively that no matter how valuable I find something, that when sharing it, it really only matters whether or not the work and words resonate with others.
It might be the wrong time, it might be the wrong words, but if something doesn’t resonate with you or with someone else, then it’s ok to walk away. Later on, it may resonate-or it may never resonate.
Honoring your own experience and the experience of others is key to a peaceful life.
May we pursue our paths, honoring our instincts about what works for us, and for others,
