There are these moments – have you felt them? When you sit back energetically and think ‘how did I get here?’. Like you suddenly remember that you are the main character AND the writer of your story, in that moment.
Just in that moment, at that point in time, you fall out of robot mode. In this moment, the infinite is possible ~ an access point into another reality.
I’ve been reading Gay Hendrick's book “The 10 Second Miracle”.
He says that, in midst of a crisis – “…in that 10s window, how you handle it can make or break a relationship, or even a career… In the 10s after an unfair moment, you have a wide-open opportunity to take the whole conversation in a different direction.”
Which reminds me of Dr John Gottman’s talk on building trust in those ‘sliding door moments’. He says that “they are very small moments, in any interaction, where there’s a possibility of connection or turning away. And if you’re always choosing to turn away, then slowly trust is eroded…”
A 10 second sliding door moment, available in any given moment.
