A Topsy Turvy World!

by Joan C King

Every once in a while everything turns topsy turvy – upside down and inside out. How do you make sense of this topsy turvy world? Maybe you can give up making sense of it and embrace the novelty of it. Imagine what the world looks like upside down and inside out. What’s your world like, upside down and inside out? Embracing this perspective may unearth insights, never before suspected.  Bertrand Russell admonishes us “… to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.” Peter Drucker the management guru tells us, “The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence; it is to act with yesterday’s logic.” Is this the time to let go of the strong hold on yesterday’s logic and allow your imagination to embrace and explore extraordinary new ideas? If this assignment appeals to you, this week whenever you detect the appearance of topsy turvy, don’t try to set it right. Let it be, upside down and backwards. Open your senses to this strangeness and soak in the panoramas that emerge. Let new ideas seed in the rich soil of your consciousness. Give them space to take root and grow. You may be surprised at the gifts brought by your topsy turvy world.

About the Author:

Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs. Joan King’s blending of science and spirituality birthed her professional coaching business, Beyond-Success LLC, in 1998.
