[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Thinking and Doing!
Don't fight the ego...just watch it - Deepak Chopra
This was my huge lesson this weekend! people construct their lives around
two responses: thinking and doing. They think about things, and they do
things; think about things and do things; think about things and do things.
And what they do depends on what they think. It's what people believe that
creates their behavior. It is at the level of belief, not at the level of
behavior, where humanity's experience will be most profoundly modified.
Many people would rather die for their beliefs--or kill others--than change
them. It doesn't matter whether the beliefs themselves are functional. It
doesn't matter whether they are making people happy and producing a better
life. Some people would rather be unhappy doing what they believe, than
happy doing something else.
And sometimes I fall into this category
I've learned to start at my initial position, and say that to the other
party, how much a difference to say " well my initial position on the
matter is" rather than "My position on this matter is" based on a belief
that may be totally off base!
Retreat is over, I learnt a lot, wisdom and learning can come from
anywhere! I ate sooooo much this weekend, the discipline choice was not
made! I was all in! Plus Arsenal lost the bloody game as well!
