Embodying the Values of AUK
I have been reflecting for a couple of days on how to start a conversation about this on here. It is a huge question and threatened to overwhelm me so I decided to reduce it to 'How can I equip myself to participate fully and wholeheartedly in this specific part of the revolution; AUK?' As there is such a lovely, clear list of core values provided, I thought I would start there and reflect upon what they mean for me and how I can embody them in my relationship with myself and others. Below I share, what seemed to me, to be my most important insights about courage...just in case anyone else might find them, or the process of reflection, useful.
How would I like courage to reliably manifest in my life?
Vulnerability in communication. Ability to question myself in public and learn out loud. To laugh at myself.
See issues from other perspectives with true curiosity and without feeling a threat to my identity.
Bravely explore liminal spaces and unknown possibilities between these perspectives.
To act wholeheartedly while acknowledging uncertainty of the results of my actions.
To take full responsibility for my actions and choices.
To be able to sit with despair and hopelessness with patience and clarity.
To take space and time for self care.
Of course this will be a continually updating process. I will continue to share my reflections on the other 5 values and invite others to do the same if they feel compelled.
