I like the word tiredish, but hope it'll improve for you today!
test: if triggered, investigate what's being affected. Is it a wound? Is it an attachment? a blockage? Could be opp to release blocked energy, attachment, hurt- allowing pain to dissolve, remaining in seat of awareness. use energy to ascend.
Letting go, giving up struggle to remain the same OR enlightened, living the truth of impermanence & change. Embracing 'problems' as agents or catalysts for growth.
Whatever arises, don't block/suppress/exile/judge/condemn, neither touch nor feed it. Do not get involved in it or try to stop it. just be aware you are seeing it and let it pass through.
I dont like the feelings, sensations, thoughts associated w/inner disturbance, practice calls not for avoidance but grace & equanimity in face of it, patiently abiding, transcending tendency to avoid pain. Present right where tension is.
Sounds cool...can you make this work?
yes, its a daily practice.
not easy. hence, the occasional reminders to self. im setting intention for day, giving mind instructions/direction.
Sorry to hear that Love. Hope it passes soon
Me too, hope it gets better asap.
thx, Noel & Alicia. Thanks for the hugs Lydia and DesBear
Sounds just right Love
Mindful workout, your form and technique on lifts should be extra good, all round benefits!
yes, John. The focus was form & breath, enjoying the gift of movement.
Sounds good. I bet it was better than lifting heavier weights badly! I will start my weights again after I've burned off some fat.
Are you guys running yet?
I like that!
thx Cory. Thanks for the hugs, pandas
Doc gave me green light to begin working out again (beast mode). Gradually increasing intensity. Feels good. Grateful to be able to move again like I used to- even if @ only 10% strength.
Wow, great work
Waking up upset sucks. I hope your day goes well, Love.
I admire your attitude. Experience but not overwhelmed. I'm sure your children liked it?!
hi, Esther. Yes, the children were pleased. Thats what hurt. My 4 y.o. wanted a three way hug. sad that the x chose divorce & the pursuit of illusions over commitment to family and the lasting happiness that comes from inner work.
What a way to start the day!
Using my resistance to $h!t I don't like to grow spiritual muscle.
Putting myself through the discipline and hard work to be like him who rejoices in tribulation knowing that tribulation exercises patience ; patience brings experience, and experience encourages wisdom & confidence.
you're a boss.
Sometimes i feel like a boss, Esther, and sometimes i feel like an automaton conditioned by culture to be predictable, boring and safe. I want my free! -Amistad.
