We find it interesting to catch a glimpse into how Almine lives her mastery in her every day life.
We asked her the following question:
You’ve often said that we need to put at least one new and one challenging thing into our daily life… that it draws in new life force, rejuvenation and prevents stagnation. What examples can you give of how you applied this principle today and yesterday?
Because I’m still learning to focus my eyes properly, I have not driven a car since the end of 2014. It takes a conscious effort to put new and challenging activities in one’s day if you’re housebound.
- I made home-brewed, alcohol-free ginger beer (it had to ripen over the next day, but it seems successful).
- For the first time I walked to the store and carried some groceries back, by myself.
- I had a new realization:
Our Russian office has asked that I create a new product – a private diary in which I share revelations and insights as they come. Previously that would be about three times a week. Now the desire for me to do so creates daily revelations – you are calling the information in, just as I had expected.
- I prepared a sourdough starter to create a variety of culinary creations.
- I studied how to produce my own yoghurt.
- I tried a new bread recipe and hope by tomorrow to learn the very tricky art of making puff pastry.
- I wrote a paper in assessing and treating stress and anxiety according to the Burns psychological evaluation.
