If you don't have a close relationship with color, I'd like to introduce you to each other. Because color can be life-enhancing. Not to mention bring out your beautiful eyes.
One Thanksgiving a long way back, my brother went around the table and asked people what they most valued or wanted and people said things like a fancy car. I said, oh, that's easy: color. My brother was gobsmacked at the differentness of my answer.
Color shows the outer and inner worlds dancing. The inner world is: aliveness, full-expression and experience and the outer world displays its inner essence in magnificent color.
A simple example of what color can do is I've got a beautiful grass green office wall. When I feel weird or sad or anything difficult, I can look at that green and feel a lot of helpful things: how beautiful the world can be and color is, alive again, hopeful. And even if nothing bad's happening, that green inspires me.
This came out of a great conversation yesterday with transformation and leadership coach Adam Quiney. Grateful.
What about you? Got a color that inspires you? I really want to know.
