On the face of it, the notion of nurturing and aligning body, mind, heart, and spirit seems simple or even trite, new age-ish. On the contrary, we all have our default centers of gravity that we overload with energy and habit to the point that others are crowded out and become harder and harder to access. The integral challenge is to create a mindset that notices the gaps and creates daily life practices that ensure all are engaged.
R. D. Laing said it well:
The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice.
And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice
there is little we can do to change
until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.
