There has been a question open for some years regarding the timing of when people come to apithology?
Unlike other new ideas that seek or demand our attention as a hopeful solution to a known or prompted problem, apithology was designed as discipline of inquiry to allow the discovery of personal knowings from a vast category of questions.
Those with the questions apithology answers, usually find themselves at the doorway to its learning pathways eventually.
What happens next is really a function of three enabling dynamics in conditions, motivations and aptitudes. The guidance is that people find themselves being ‘able, ready and willing’ to begin their apithology learning.
To understand this unique apithology formulation is easy:
- some may be able when conditions allow, when other work has been completed, space has been made, and deficiency needs have been satisfied. For some the timing is perfect, some plan for years for this and some are still hoping for that time of arriving.
- others are ready when priorities change, work that was requested departs, or new questions appear. Mostly, an idea or hope they had held and needed to prove to themselves first has now resolved itself clearly. Having spoken answers to others and gathered vast information, we may become ready to learn what apithology allows to be newly discovered.
- those who are willing often have ability, and opportunity, but also a curiosity that is not satiated by a glib or momentary familiarity. Those willing to learn apithology well arrive with a discernible humility, knowing the inquiry is greater than their present capacity.
While the moment of prompt is always personal, there does seem to be an in common place of commencement in the ‘when’ of apithology.
This appears as each person’s recognition of their membership of humanity and an in-common desire to serve all others in enablement.
Because this is the focus that founded the necessity for the discipline it is often said: “If you hold apithology’s questions, you may as well have, all of its answers.”
The informed path of generative contribution once available, is then wide open and available.
