Dear Robin,

thanks for that piece of wisdom.

Its very much in the spirit of the way I introduce the "Law".

Lets not forget, that the "principles" are not principles but Facts of Life and that the "Law" is not a law but a gentle reminder of what to do if you neither learn nor contribute in a situation where folks often stick to the uncomfortable convention of not leaving that situtation.

Its perfectly ok to stay in places where you neither learn nor contribute. Actually, its a perfect opportunity to take a nap... as I have observed participants do in breakout sessions. No harm. And we need neither principles nor laws nor rules in the traditional sense but employ them tongue in cheeck as lightfooted invitations to step out of our conventions and expand time and space. Without attaching outcomes to it.

Greetings from Berlin
