It sort of helps me calm down when I think too much about what "IF"s
can go wrong for "me", when you take the "me" out of the equation, you don't have to
your emotions all day long, you can simply watch them like you are watching your computer screen
Yes, absolutely agree. was brutally honest with myself about emotions and intentions for a half-hour time-period today and noted the following things crop up:
- Conventional emotion 'Frustration', after analysis was revealed as 'Aversion towards particular person and intention to vex said person'
- Conventional action of asking to be served in diner was revealed after analysis as 'Reinforcing self-view by demonstrating ability to speak foreign language (showing off)
- Conventional impusle to reprove someone for their 'rude' behaviour was revealed after analysis to actually be an impulse of 'Aversion/hostility towards person for speaking in a way that irritated me AND an impulse to make person's attractive female companion notice me, and ridcule her male companion i.e: lust' and 'coveting/jealousy' whatever.
This insight thing is brutal, but EXTREMELY beneficial in helping to turn the tide against such behaviours, ingrained over a long time.
