Wow, being around family is so special and also provides me with many great opportunities to practice, practice, practice the transformational work I am living.
I noticed several times today where I could have really gotten hooked on some energy around what someone was saying, how they were saying it, my own energy, my own agenda, or how I or someone else was being in the moment. I want to say that I am happy to have noticed this and saw it for what it was.
The key here is in the noticing.
That is the very first step.
Then, with the noticing, comes curiosity. I am able to get curious about what is going on and how I want to act, be or show up in a situation. This is SO powerful, because it really gives me the freedom to choose. Choose myself, choose my actions, choose my life.
How about you? How do you remain free and clear around situations that tend to trigger you?
Even the most “practiced” among us get triggered and take the bait. I find that family is as good a gauge of one’s spiritual development as any. One of the traps we can fall into is judging ourselves when we do take the bait hook, line and sinker. We must remember we are human and the conditioning we’ve all inherited is deep and profound. Spiritual growth requires on-going practice, just like mastering a dance move. 🙂
You Go Sean! I like the dance reference here, perfect. And why DO we practice?
We all desire to be great at something in life.
Thank you for sharing Sean
