In sitting I realized that anger is my most vulnerable trait. I have always told others that anger is just a waste of energy lost on nothing of importance. Now, I believe, based on facts presented in this week’s webinar, that this is not wasted energy but energy that needs to be redirected for a more advantageous purpose. I am now a more astute observer of this emotion and will redirect the energy when it appears. There are very few things that really should make us angry so a deeper evaluation seems to be in order.
Guilt is probably the 2nd trait that I encounter. I find that when I don’t met all of the assignments, although thinking that I am giving it my undivided attention, I am just following my old comfort zone of making unnecessary excuses. Because of the webinar, I now understand that I need to redirect this energy and STOP making excuses. It is just a matter of “doing it now” instead of finding mindless things to replace it.
I am looking forward to the “Silence” time and intend to give it my full attention. I believe that we are too invested in our modern conveniences (cell phones, IPad’s, computers, etc) to really enjoy our lives and our relationships to family and friends. I think this is one of the greatest exercises we have been given and I truly believe it will be life changing. This would be a perfect exercise for anyone over 21 to try and accomplish. Most people I know of that age, could not or would not put down their cell phones for more than 5 minutes, let alone a full day or so. But then, do they really understand how their old subby is programmed. I think not.
