Yesterday, I had the rare opportunity to witness a work of art and beauty, which leads us to question how we are living our life. Are we living authentically, in harmony with our essence and intuition? This was prompted by the documentary film called InnSaei (The Sea Within) which has been co-directed by Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir, she is the one who introduced me to Cowbird and a friend who I always had deep and meaningful conversations with at university! It is a brilliantly made film and I am sharing the link for those interested to find out more: http://www.innsaei.is/
It made me think about so many questions I always ask myself about what seems amiss in everyday life and work. Seeing the world, whenever I watch nature, there seems to be a flow but when we are working, it seems there is a disconnection. Could it be to do with our energy alignment? I have often thought that one needs inspiration with work and to remain in that state, I guess we have to be conscious of what is inside and seeing from within as the film shows. I do feel that more and more people are becoming conscious of this but I am still surprised at for example, how uniform and unchanging things are in institutions. For example, it is still a male dominated arena of work-whether the corporate sector or humanitarian sector but more than that, the values behind are very 'masculine', in the way that it is very much about performance, measurement and action, instead of a joined up way of operating. This is not an attack on men but more the energy, one can call it 0 and 1, the play of the dialectic. There is a definite disharmony between the energies that seem like, there is a need to return back to a more authentic flow between them. Again, it may be a point in time process and we may well be moving towards more intuitive ways of operating. Watching the documentary made me think about all these things. So thank you Hrund, Kristin and the creators of InnSaei!
