The last few days I noticed that I’m doing the reading and the assignments, but not investing my full self, kind of going through the motions. I sensed that more keenly today so I am connecting to the words more deeply and also had a sit this morning which lasted a full hour. That seemed to make a difference in the day, the sit, that is. Observing myself in a more profound sense is also keeping me in a growing space that I suppose the culture calls mindfulness. The self judgement is much less and noticing becomes more of a learning about myself without the negative chatter. It also facilitates my thoughts about my DMP to take form more freely because I’m being letting my thoughts flow, rather than analyzing every thought.
