I bet when you read ‘c-word’, you were thinking of something else… But don’t be mistaken, people are more afraid of commitment than the c-word you thought I meant…
Here is a quote from Rob Brezsny: When a crocodile slams its jaws shut, the energy it summons is powerful. But when the beast opens its jaws, the force it exerts is weak. That’s because the muscles used to close the mouth are much more robust than the muscles used to open.
Humans, you? shy away from commitments: Commitment is jaws open… allowing. Why?
There is a behavior that I used to have, and have successfully beaten.
The behavior is the “out of sight/out of mind”, “now that I am doing something else, I don’t remember the things I have been doing, promised, supposed to do…”
The behavior of a person who cannot keep 2-3-4-5 habits going concurrently.
If they are busy looking at something, they are so busy, that their water is not energized, their food list is not honored, they don’t practice their guitar, they don’t read, nothing. Just do that one thing.
With social media, smart phones, this is getting even worse… and I didn’t think it could get any worse than it was before.
