If we find ourselves in an argument — back and forth, back and forth — we can insist on our position remaining, or we can seek a third position that is not ours, not the person we are arguing with but a combination of them both, or even, if we are open enough, transcends both.

This is to seek the third.

From a geometry point of view, the moment we create a third we create space in the argument, the third giving dimension to the back and forth.

This space will invite possibilities that previously did not exist.

Seek the third. Breathe. Gift space.

This is also to play the infinite game which transcends winners and losers.

Walk into a room of drama and be the clown.
Walk into a room of collusion and be the provocateur.
Find yourself in an argument? Be the one to lift the conversation by remembering why you are together in the first place.
Too much saccharine, Be the salt.
Too much anger. Be laughter.
This is the power we have.
It only takes one to change the charge.

To remain astonished. By the miracle of life. The extraordinary communication channels in the human body that exceed any technology we have. Photosynthesis — Turing light into life. The coordination of ants.

In awe — the entire weight of the 20 quadrillion ants on the planet exceeds the weight of all of the wild birds and mammals on the planet. Dolphins swimming around my surf board. Finding love later in life.

Movement — staying fit, keeping agile and strong.

These are the three keys to staying young, no matter our age.

Our culture shames mistake making. This is tragic.

Mistakes mean we are learning, seeking, inventing, innovating.

Wrapped in a mistake free life is entropic.

On the edge, where aliveness lives, we will make mistakes.

If we are smart, we will not make the same mistake twice.

Indeed, if we are smart, we will seek to make new mistakes.
