Two recent experiences reminded me of one universal truth: We are all in this together. “This” being life: questioning of our purpose, longing to have impact, exchanging love, and fearing death or loss, as we consciously or unconsciously make the dozens if not hundreds of choices we make each day. Stepping fully into the divine necessity of our being, we are asked to support each other, to be leaders through our behavior and actions.
The fist experience is in the context of being an indoor cycling (spin) instructor. I’ve been teaching for a year with a perspective that my job as the leader of the class was to take you through a butt-kicking workout and to do it in a way that reaches varying fitness levels and fitness goals. Check, I’m doing that well. In my recent self-exploration and expansion, it occurred to me that perhaps being a leader asks more of us and perhaps that more is more sincerity. When I think of spin class, I don’t expect too much of my spiritual or emotional being to engage. It has seemed to me that it’s all about the physical. This week, I chose to think differently and yep, I’m a broken record. My changed behavior from changed thinking produced…drum roll please…a different result!
