The mind body problem of The Strawberry plagues all of us - that knowledge / feeling that life is happening all around us, but due to busyness, mental chatter, or a lack of immediate awareness, we don't seem able to taste it.
Time just... passes.
That isn't life.
And it IS a problem worth solving.
And while our first two mind body problems - The Rope (on stress & presence) and The Mirror (on identity & presence) - can be categorized as capacity problems (meaning they directly correlate to the level of mind-body conditioning one has or hasn't, and not how clearly one orients around their personal objectives), The Strawberry is a higher level problem.
It's one of embodied mindset or perspective.
It's one of integration.
So while I hope you grock the Strawberry Problem below, I also hope that if it resonates (and you fit the profile mentioned above), but it seems slightly out of reach at present, that you take the leap with me & W, or take action in some other way that get's you to the space to sense, to feel, and to choose.
Life is glorious.
And you deserve to taste it.
The Third Problem: The Strawberry
The Strawberry Problem is a higher order problem. In fact, this is the problem that most coaches and self help gurus focus on, because if you overcome it, it leads to tremendous impact and personal growth.
But… If one still falls victim to the rope, and sees only their reflection in the mirror, this problem not only will not effectively be addressable, It may not even seem like an actual problem…
At its core, the strawberry is about making the unconscious, conscious. It’s about transcending conditioned patterns that bind you to the past and impulses that steal you from the moment.
It’s about living fully, right here, right now.
“I know what I ought to do, but I still don’t do it.”
How many times have you heard that from someone in the throws of change?
How many times have you said it yourself?
How different would life be if something just clicked, and all of a sudden all those little things you know you ought to do were just chosen?
What does that version of you look like?
We’re talking about the moment of choice, and therefore, the moment of change.
It’s an altogether baffling problem, because you often know, in the moment, you shouldn’t be reaching for the chocolate bar, scrolling through social, or retreating from an uncomfortable conversation, and yet?
The burdens you carry - the anxiety, the doubts, the regrets.
Countless moments of unnecessary suffering and disempowered living.
Your attention gives them life. And those states of being cloud your vision… prevent you from seeing the strawberry.
But what if you had a simple process, something that empowered you to shift in the here and now, to release those burdens and control those impulses for even a few moments, creating the space to choose with full commitment and acceptance?
The space to taste the strawberry sitting right in front you?
Can you not sense the difference in power, focus, and connection?
Now, ironically, when faced with that vision, many feel a suffocating responsibility, and prefer to choose known knowns, even if they lead to further suffering.
For within the Rope and the Mirror is the familiar, for better or worse.
But for those of you watching this, that’s not you.
You’re here to answer the call. Aren’t you?
Without tasting the strawberry, there is no lasting change.
