When we rumble (analyze, consider, agonize) over a story a division occurs. The story- telling reveals the parts we have made up to protect ourselves and the truth which has become obscured with the shoulds and can'ts. In between a delta rises which holds the "key learnings".
"Deltas are where rivers meet the sea. They are marshy, full of sediment, and forever changing. They are rich and fertile area of growth. This is where we need to do our work- our key learnings emerge from the delta."
In the story of my grandson Alex the confabulations that came gushing out of his heart were:
- He was not good enough at playing the piano
- I was giving him easier music because I also did not think he was good enough
- Practicing is frustrating sometimes
- There is always someone better than you are and comparing robs you of joy
