This is a good question to chew on, observe, test out, for a True Empath.
The fate of humanity, and your personal well-being, evolution, raising your vibration, depends on your relationship to perfection.
How? Perfection is imposed. Perfection comes from your relationship with something outside of yourself. It's a comparison, and you live in a constant fear of "falling from grace", falling short of perfection. The rules are set by others with an agenda. The agenda isn't overt: in fact, it is a manipulative agenda. The goal is to keep you out of balance, keep you failing, keep you suppressed, keep you small and dependent. 1
Integrity is an inside job. It is between you and you. No one, outside of you, can judge your integrity. Of course, the way the word is used in everyday language makes it, for you, while you are unconscious, part of the perfection racket, but the "real" meaning of integrity is that you act consistent with YOUR interest, with YOUR values, with YOUR Self.
Integrity is an empowering concept, while perfection is disempowering. Integrity has no front office and back office, not shenanigans in the background, it is the same through and through.
While perfection is a Trojan horse. Once it is sneaked into you, you are a puppet on a string, at the mercy of the hidden agenda: you are an effect, never able to succeed in the impossible task of being "sinless". No one is. Your so-called saints are fakes and pretenders.
A sleep doctor says 4 types of animals represent how people sleep — and these are the ideal daily routines for each
When it comes to health and productivity, it's not just about what you do — eating right, exercising, and working hard — it's also about when you do it.
Chronobiology is the study of internal clocks, how they differ among people, and how you can adjust your daily schedule to suit your unique biological rhythm. Each person's rhythm, or chronotype, is different.
According to psychologist and sleep specialist Dr. Michael Breus, there are four chronotypes, which he labels dolphins, lions, bears, and wolves. Roughly half the population is made up of bears; the rest is split among dolphins, lions, and wolves.
Breus' website includes a diagnostic quiz readers can take to try to identify their chronotype.
I am reading a book that says: the purpose of life is survival. 1
So I am going to look at the issues that hold my students back through that distinction: survival. If what I find is true about my students, it is probably true for other people... as well, maybe even you...
So, the question is: how does lack of humility serve survival... or the illusion of survival? After all an individual's ability to survive increases greatly by learning new things... and yet.
The book Feelings writes at length about the Desire Trap, 1 but ultimately offers no escape route.
So I have been observing, and experimenting. Also attempting to widen the definition.
Desire for what...
The essence of the desire trap is two-fold
1. what you desire is not possible for you, or not right now. So you fantasize about it, and it gives you momentary relief... and thus it creates the trap. You keep desiring and you keep fantasizing about getting it.
2. what you desire is not up to you, or desiring it is a "rule" you made up for survival. Because it is not up to you, you can't attain your desire.
The physical manifestation of desire is greed, and it shows up in the throat.
