Experiencing pain? emotional? physical? Where does pain come from?
Most people cannot properly, accurately identify what they feel inside. On one hand self awareness is low, on the other knowing what the inner dynamics are is not taught in any school, or by any ‘guru’.
Given that it is not taught, you’ll have a hard time, I guess, to accept that all pain is the result of resistance… emotional, physical… all pain.
But what about fear?
Fear, what you call fear, is resistance. No matter what name you call it, anxiety, worry, it is still resistance and it causes pain.
One of the behaviors that can be observed with people who procrastinate is that they are also reactive… not proactive.1
I will talk about that in another article… but for now I am more interested in another one of the “hidden in plain sight” hidden dynamics is: where, on what you are focusing.
Duality is firmly present, omnipresent, in reality where it concerns you. You either do one thing or another. Even when seemingly you are doing both… because you can only do one thing at a time. Because your attention is like a vector, it can be placed on one thing at a time.
You can either be defensive or offensive.
And you are, in your behavior either one or the other… And your mood, your life experience, your results follow as surely as night follows day.
It is also follows, that you either live out of fear or out of adventure.
It’s really hot here. I don’t use air conditioning, and I don’t sweat. So I am really hot. And I am still digesting a lot of things… and it’s not a good idea to write about half baked stuff… or not often.
I don’t feel like writing. But I feel like telling you something, so I whipped out my headset and made an audio… a podcast if you will.
I learned this method from MY mentor, Robert Plank… you can talk a lot faster than you can write… and it gets you over the hump…
It was inspired by this article and this TED talk.
