If You Do "A," "B" Will Happen

Sometimes we fall into the trap of wanting to please those who come to us for guidance and so may try to provide the answer as though it is ours to give -- the one insight that explains everything and tells us exactly what to do from this day forth. "If you do A, B will happen. If you don't, it won't." But "pleasing" is not often helpful. In fact, it often feels self-oriented rather than about the other person. Life is not geometric, it is organic. Constellations, in their fullness, reveal organic movements versus new strategies to control those movements. Bert's "acknowledging what is" doesn't imply a still point, but rather an ongoing ebb and flow.
