3 Postures of Relationship
Our message to our children needs to be seek out learning partners – those who will be in-learning with you, who value walking beside you.
How do you present yourself to your family, your friends, your work relationships, new acquaintances or strangers? We continually shape the experience of our relationships and the world around us. As you approach your different relationships, are you primarily in-knowing, in-wanting or in-learning? These three postures shape the energy we share, the invitations we make to others, the choices we see, and what actions we take. The difference between in-knowing, in-wanting or in-learning is recognized by the qualities or energy that are present when we hold a particular posture. In our relationships we are constantly sensing what qualities are present as people approach. This important information we use to interpret intentions, motivations, and attitudes from one person to another. Qualities are universally recognized across cultures and societies.
