Are you a Lifelong Learner? Ready to heal pain from the past and fear about the future? Can you observe others and notice how you are showing up in any given situation? Own your side of the fence and move from victim to victor?
In meetings and groups, we take turns talking about what we're learning about ourself, life, and others. We hold space by witnessing each other on journey. Sometimes we're trudging through the muck and mire of mind/body/spirit challenges and issues and just need to be heard and seen to find our way back to peace of mind... we practice telling the truth about ourself:
My feelings: Glad, Mad, Sad, Grateful, Fearful, Peaceful etc. (see scale for reference)
My flaws: Traits of my character which I normally would try to hide from others
My mistakes: Choices I made which I now believe were not the wisest ones, as they did not contribute
to my happiness
My behaviors (getting & protecting unloving behaviors): Lying, Attacking, Acting like a Victim, Clinging, and Running to fill my emptiness, numb my pain, or to protect myself from getting emotionally hurt.
My seeking of Imitation Love: In the absence of Unconditional Love, seeking Praise, Power, and Pleasure to
fill my emptiness; seeking Safety to protect myself from getting emotionally hurt.
My expectations on other people: Expecting other people make choices for my convenience & my happiness.
My selfishness: Insisting that other people make choices for my convenience and my happiness.
My irresponsibility: Not taking actions to find Unconditional love which will eliminate my emptiness & fear.
