I’ve recently started working part-time in the IT department at a private school. As I’ve been meeting and greeting new colleagues, the Wisdom Wheel has served as a great underlying support system.
It’s also helped me stay calm as I encounter the many problems to solve within their technology infrastructure. Complex systems are inherently unstable. No sooner have I fixed one problem, then two more tasks are added. It’s been a slow Process, but I am slowly getting to understand the school’s spider’s web of the computers. I try to embody Eternal Present as I listen with Compassion to my colleagues’ tales of technological woe. I’m happy to help. Someone even called me a saint. So, so far so good! I am neither saint nor sinner, but an amalgam of both, as we all are.
I try to stay above the fray of the school politics. Someone pointed out that I’m the only person unaffected by the school bell. Hah! The tools of the Wisdom Wheel aid me in my walking the red road. I aim to be a warrior for collaboration and Creativity not for Power or control. The people at the school don’t know about the Wisdom Wheel, but they are in the midst of an individual who is positively influenced by it.
