 With the Trunk of a Tree

1 -- See
a tree
that calls
to you

2 -- Ask 
to commune
with it
to converse
with its essence

3-- Listen
for affirmation
sit at its base
with your back
to the trunk

13 -- Give thanks
to the tree
Make notes
for yourself to
share again

4 -- Sense
your connection
with it,
its essence
its roots

5 -- Feel
being here
for the world

6-- Move
from the roots
to the trunk
with your spine

13 -- Give thanks
to the tree
Make notes
for yourself to
share again

Smiling Tree Trunk Ink
Note taking

7 -- Release 
the separation
the tree
and you

8 -- Allow
the flow
of energy
together and

9 -- Mingle
the energies
braid them
become one
with awareness

13 -- Give thanks
to the tree
Make notes
for yourself to
share again

10 -- Breathe, see
chant, sense
your expression

11 -- Know
the expression
the healing
here, and now
for your return

12 --Become
a separate
being free
the trunk,
the tree

13 -- Give thanks
to the tree
Make notes
for yourself to
share again

Brief intro to #Awarests from the book "Awareness FROM Forests" pg. 3... Amazon: https://amzn.to/3lXhAJ0 --- Awarests is the combination of #Awareness & #Forests - with the connection via "RE" (or About) --- Awarests is about one's awareness from forests & trees, wild kin...


Today, do you self-identify as a business innovator - influencer - shaper - mover - educator... whether as an intrapreneur (manager - leader - executive) or an entrepreneur (mentor - facilitator - coach - etc.).

Based on this identity belief, use the "I Suppose" test to determine what's next - as you think and feel the importance of legacy.

If I am an executive who shapes the business, I suppose that means...?

If I am an entrepreneur who educates about performance improvement, I suppose that means...?

"About Trees" - a poem generated by AI... and asked for the author as well #wellth #nature #trees #movement


Some days - I wonder --- "What would happen today if there were no clouds?" I would miss the teddy bear. I would miss the rain. What would you miss?


Of those you encounter who jerk the line of common sense, they have not walked with intelligent fiber-thread-string-cord-rope stories. Instead, they experienced the chain link story.


#Tuesday: Legacy Well-Living Organization post: In 2004, I published the 10 characteristics of the well-living workplace. Today, with edits to the original, I'm posting the 10 characteristics for the Well-Living Organization. [New book series on the way!] I'm using an action-outcome format: each statement starts with an action verb and finishes with an outcome statement. More: https://wellthmovement.com/well-living-organization


I admit - there are days when my sharing has me tilt my head and go, "ok, then!" And I'm more than okay with that presence. For me, it's a story thread unfolding from what I enfolded yesterday.

Sharing thru #story - a great way to listen to yourself and feel the response from others... Sharing is about your #POV; listening is for your #perspective - onwoard!


Is your life Clamouring, Yelling, Screaming for Your Attention and Expression NOW?

Do You Feel Trapped by __Something Like?__ Especially When You Look Down the Path?

Asking a #SaturdayQuestion for your #SaturdayThoughts ... as an #older to be #elder, living a #soloaging lifestyle - what say you? www.wellthmovement.com


Help them to learn as they help you to educate. This interaction is an elegant way for both of you to get what you request. The key for you: Use the correct education approach for the situational learning.

#learn and #educate - their dance... for the #request, ensure to educate is clear, consistent, and correct --- otherwise you'll be stepping on toes!


In consideration of a situation you are entering: Is it true? Is there anything missing? Is your involvement, as it is unfolding, fair and just? Are you using a safer practices approach for all?


As you stand at the precipice of doing - what will your actions lead to? In that doing, what is its "fitness" for you and I, and we together?

As you stride forward, remember "to put your best foot forward." According to how you step and/or your display of footwear. Then again, "How about by the way you leave your footprint!"

Strides #steps #footwear #footprint --- here is a short story ))smiles #MondayMorning #nature #legacy


As you set-up--stand-up, and stride forward, consider the importance of simplicity, elegance, and humility. Season all, with grace, for your movement.

Seasoning #movement with #grace - is a great way to get there. Doing so with simplicity, elegance, and humility is wholesome! Onwoard! #SundayMorning


Dr. Stephen Hobbs answers three questions about his new book: Mentoring NOW Topics: Mentoring concepts and mentor practices; reflection in and on mentoring; walking with safety while mentoring https://youtu.be/VsraIts6paY via @YouTube


Minding - is about the process of knowing your mindset and practices, about your awareness of something unfolding --- in this case, your outside-in story of moving as older to be #elder - enjoy! #resilience #relevance


When a routine becomes a rut, it's important to reframe them as a ritual by adding wholeheartedness. Thus you find the rhythm you intended when you started.

This insight came to mind as I turned the corner on the path this morning - just before the long stretch. I said TU... kept walking, and I added "wholeheartedness" to the wording by the time I returned home. Enjoy! #wellth #movement


What are 5 tips to help you focus when you mentor + 3 insights from a new book: Mentoring NOW https://youtube.com/live/gus67l012FM


I weave & navigator via a whole system-whole person approach. Sometimes called WOW = Wholistic

Organization of Work. I use work, in its widest sense. Tuesday is WOW Day!


In how you are because of your why, I consider the same for me. Together, I ask, we work to do something we may not contribute individually. In celebration of co-creation!

#SundayThoughts about you and I, and we together. About #cocreation ... walking with nature as our living systems educator - onwoard!


To deal with troubles and tensions develop and use the tools and techniques to strengthen being you. Often, conversations with others identify your simples.

Each day there are "things" that create a mess, from which your message is to improve, focus, and strengthen your approach to living - enjoy your #tuesdayvibe


Elevate your perspective via learning and knowing; evolve your point of view by knowing and sharing. Repeat. Repeat! AND, ensure you deliver results | outcomes along the way!

#Saturday evening --- the thought arrived --- I typed it --- and here you have It! #perspective #POV #outcomes


Of what you deliver - of what you put on the table - of what you share over coffee --- Is it of good taste for all of the senses? Metaphors in process!

#Metaphors, the #senses, great #coffee, putting something #onthetable... enjoy this message... Onwaord! #saturdaymorning
