Week 6 Opinions & Love
I sailed through week 5’s no opinions rather well I thought. Noticing the temptation and biting my tongue several times. Then come week 6, still no opinions! This is fine and I don’t mind it so much, but when I go into town I end up coming home sooner than planed. Why? My conversations are cut short. No Opinion! Man could the world be a quieter place if everyone silenced their opinions? Would there be less wars? Certainly a subject for great debate but then again with no opinion would there be a debate? I’ll leave you with that thought.
Now week 6 threw in another interesting yet powerful lesson, along with Og’s scroll #2. Love! What a powerful four letter word. Even practicing it can have it’s challenge if one’s old blueprint is hanging on to anger and discontent. For example: My job from last year(2014) turned out to be very stressful and I reacted it a way I never have before. This caused be to stay clear of my old boss and I found myself going out of my way to avoid any confrontation. How childish of me. Since the start of scrol 2, I found myself stopping to say hello to him just yesterday. And you know I am still here no worst for ware. You just have to let things go. If you are going to carry old baggage around with you it will slow you down, like running through a thorn patch. Eventually you will come to a stop.
Then there is this poem we have to read at end of day. The Guy/Gal In The Glass. Stare yourself in the face when you read it. I yet am unable to read all the way through without choking up a might. A little tear. Who would have thought? If one was to read it out aloud in a classroom I’d bet they would read smoothly but read to yourself in the mirror tells a different story.
Thanks to the MKMMA for getting me to stop and notice myself more.
