SQ skill #1 - Do you know what makes you tick?

Today UUAWOL is starting a new feature addressing the skills of Spiritual Intelligence as described by Cindy Wigglesworth in her book The Twenty-One Skills of Spiritual Intelligence.

Since the purpose of the UUAWOL blog is to add value to its reader's spiritual life, it would be helpful in pursuing this purpose if reader's would leave comments about the significance of the question in focusing on their spiritual growth.

The third principle of Unitarian Universalism is the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth. Your comments would be a way of sharing your experience as a means of encouraging the spiritual growth in oneself as well as with others.

Here's the first question; Do you know what makes you tick and can you explain it to others?

"To what extent do you think that you can explain to others the impacts of your culture, your upbringing, and your mensal assumptions on how you interpret the world around you?"

Not at all    Somewhat    Mostly   Completely

  1. Understanding oneself and illuminating one's blind spots occurs in intimate relationships where the other comes to know you sometimes even better than you know yourself.

    The other place where self knowledge can be nurtured is in psychotherapy with a therapist who practices what is called "client centered therapy."

    Over the years I have gained increasing understanding of myself in psychotherapy and in intentionally living an examined life. Socrates said that an unexamined life is not worth living. To what extent do you and others you know live an examined life?
