Live in the present moment wisely and earnestly



Time & Task Management and Acceptance (I)

5th September 2007

(E-learning week in campus. And I’ve been in the little hostel room all day facing my companion Lenova X61, visiting one course webpage into another. A pat on my shoulder despite I do feel I took long to complete 2 discussions: one on “At Risk Students” & alternatives and Fun Learning & Good Learning.) 

The first weeks in August I was “haunting”  myself with my my conscious knowledge that I have not come back to blog so much of moments of experience.

And I also came to a conclusion: I should stop having the thought to want to write in sequencial account. Such desire will only halt me further.

First, a new discovery of  the poem by Marianne Williamson:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be – brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so small that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in us, it’s in everyone.

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

 

Marianne Williamson, 1992.

How lovely to chance upon while doing a research on Collaborative Learning when I visited Karl Smith’s webpage http://www.karl-smith.com/index.htm.

 For the next minutesss, let me dedicate some time to get to know her.
