The real value of a weblog


I guess it's easy, particularly when you first start blogging, to get enamored with the idea of having a voice in the world and having such a huge potential audience for your ideas. 
I now realise that the benefit lies elsewhere.  This little Quicktime video clip by Nancy White is a little reminder to myself of the real value of blogging - that it's about co-creating with others, about putting aside our personal agendas and joining the conversation so a shared meaning can emerge.  I'm a sucker for a good metaphor and Nancy uses the idea of candles and mirrors beautifully to illustrate this change of perspective from personal to shared benefits.

[Note to self:- come back here and replay this clip if ever I feel myself getting on a high horse]

  • ..this blog stems from a recognition that our true nature is far more creative, loving and unlimited than we could possibly imagine... and it transforms everything... a practical, generic solution to all our problems.

    These are just my lesson notes as I try to  be true to that recognition... and  learn to fly.  So it's quite possible that everything here may be wrong.

    Thank you for visiting.  Email (to Nick Smith) is always welcome.
