..that is one of the disappointing things you learn when you do work with me. I won't feed you baloney like "you are a spiritual being having a human experience..." and other garden variety horse manure.
The other half-sentence is just as disappointing: "you can't get out of this life alive..."
These two half-sentences address 70% of the popular delusions of humanity.
The Outcome Is Not Pretty. You Are Trying. You Fail. What's Going On?
Your Troubles Are Repeating Themselves. your life is scripted. different locales, different characters, but it is the same repeating story. You Are Living Out A Script... The Outcome Is Not Pretty. You Are Trying. You Fail. What's Going On?
I would dare to say, that repeating a script that only brings you trouble, pain, guilt, shame is the opposite of emotional intelligence.
The first "modality" for "emotional intelligence" I encountered was beating. By my mother, occasionally by my father.
The second modality I encountered was psychotherapy, by a psychiatrist, who, after two years of therapy, decided that sleeping with me is more fun. I was 16 at the time.
Greed: Impatience, Hurry, Wanting, Forcing, Craving, Pursuing, Fighting For. Even What You Call "Loving" Is Greed. Sorry to burst your bubble...
And all resistance in the chest, in the pit of the stomach and in the shoulders... whatever the reasoning.
What is the opposite of greed?
I mean, if you knew that anything with any element of greed in it works to your detriment: it makes you miserable, and it repels what you are greedy for... You would get curious what is the opposite of greed, wouldn't you?
Talk about double punishment!
Empathically (feeling your feelings) looking: greed is a tightening. The shoulders try to get closer to each other and want to meet in the middle. Why? I am the reporter, not the theorist, sorry.
