Today, my ego won.
Resulting intention: RESPOND don’t REACT.
Here’s how it goes:
STEP 1: truly listen, with patience
STEP 2: receive the energy exchange
STEP 3: recognize typical reaction
STEP 4: choose compassionate response
It’s not being passive, it’s knowing when and how to take action. Catching the reaction before you react takes listening, patience, and inquiry. Whether it’s on my mat or during a spat with my lover (sorry @davileo
, still practicing over here...) each time I check my ego, I know I’m evolving into a higher version of myself. So, mistakes are great!
