a usefull technique for maintaining personal power

I find that I can be knocked off center easily buy unexpected circumstances. And peoples feelings can have an enormous affect on my mood. After deep searching I have discovered a way to lesson this affect.

When confronted by an annoying event a persons natural response are 3. Either attack defend or withdraw. And this I have participated in many times and have grown tired of losing my personal power to persons or events.

Now when triggered I imagine that my body light like gas, or pours like a screen. And I imagine that whatever energy is impacting my body travels right through. Provoking no response on my part. This way I can preserve my personal power and not react out of the 3 false responses.

If I chose to take an action it is not a reaction. My action will be on purpose,responsible,and intentional from my own source of personal power. Or I may choose to totally ignore the person or situation as it passes right through me. because it has caused me no affect and ceased to prompt me to action.

I find this technique very help full in keeping myself grounded, preserving my own power, and not allowing myself to be taken on the whims of things.

If it works.........Use it

Just some mixed thoughts

Ideas I have been working with.

Well, as far as I am concerned thinking is not being. Just because I think does not make it clear That I am.I know that I am not my thoughts because they are often wrong or seem to come from some strange place and want something.

I feel the answer is in the silence.. The time in between thoughts where beingness occurs. Its the silence in between the notes of music that make a song truly possible. I feel for me that beingness only happens in my time of mental silence. When my thoughts are not driving my actions to Analise a situation or perceived problem is when I feel most alive.

I have found that staying out of my mind has brought me much peace. And has opened much space for just being.And just being is all I have ever wanted anyway.

But of course if I don't practice silence I find myself drawn back into my thoughts and separated from reality. And reality is what I want to be apart of most.

Good luck with your practice!!
