The object of the Rule of 6 Plus One is not about accomplishments but simple enjoyment of state of being.
It’s a daily practice of self-discovery. It’s an expression of awareness. It’s a celebration of life where you give your “fullest, deepest attention.”
This evening Mrs. Abstract and I went to dinner with a couple of friends. We met other friends in the restaurant. It’s our Rotary club’s Dine and Donate night.
Where will I put this occasion in the Rule of 6 Plus One?
It’s not an imaginative play, or ideas to ponder? It’s a tight squeeze for Encounters with Beauty. Dinner with friends is sharing. It’s relationships.
For children and adults Sharing is an additional category in the celebration of life. It deserves a separate category which will overlap with the others. All the seven activities can be shared. The Rule of 6 Plus One will need an additional activity: Sharing. The daily activities will become Rule of 7 Plus One.
My mnemonics can be: Imagine Baudelaire Walking Writing Sharing Intense Poetic Encounters
