I’ve just completed the online Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator, which was inspired by watching Robert Holden's five week online training course Coaching Success.
What was interesting about the results were they exactly matched what I expressed in my latest work Sermon – On the seventh beatitude, an investigation of my inner feelings and a message of inter peace.
My first personality was Type nine The Peacemaker, which exempliﬁes the desire for wholeness, peace, and harmony in our world. My joint first was Type five The Investigator, which exempliﬁes the human desire to understand, to look beneath the surface of things, and to arrive at deeper insights about reality.
This is exactly what my recent work Sermon the seventh beatitude and Flesh & Blood are about; a shift into an alignment with philosophy and wisdom, to unearth the truth about an authentic way of living in harmony with myself and the world. To achieve this I had to let go of surviving only with an ego, to accept the shadows and authentic shame. To bring people into my life who teach us to listen to ourselves and find the inner wisdom to channel the divine spirit.
