go to the balcony

Prepping for mediation from home? I have become an expert in going to the balcony 💭
(those who know, will know).

I learnt the concept of ‘go to the balcony’ from my mediation classes mentored by TK Iu at the University of Hong Kong. I must confess, this training not only helps in training self for mediation but also helps in training self for our own behavior in our personal life – which has a real impact on the kind of person you wish to be.

As learnt, I am now aware – the most natural thing one would do when in conflict is: strike back, give in, or the worst – break off. However, instead, we can and must consider doing these three things: pause and say nothing, rewind the tape and take a time-out!

Breathe calmly my dear.

Thank you so much Ting-kwok (TK) Iu, MH for enlightening so many mediation students.

Thank you, Papa also. (to keep reminding me to go to the balcony of my life which I really forget when I become a mere normal human stuck in personal conflict.)
