What is the Priority?
I tend to put quotes that I like on my wall near my computer. They help to remind me to stay focused and present.
I’m not sure why my brain wants to drift off to facebook (okay – I do know – it’s a Pavlovian response – I write something – I get a response – we salivate for the attention).
Anyway – I hope to remind myself to stay off of social networking and instead stay focused on what matters most to me.
I tell my students that instead of saying what their priority is they should instead count up how many hours they spend on each activity – whatever comes out on top week after week is their priority.
If they don’t like the outcome of that exercise, the solution is to change their actions so they better match their goals.
My notes are my attempt at keeping my actions in line with my intention while I’m at my computer.
On My Wall
This is what is on my wall these days:
it reveals him to himself.
however humble or small the actions may be,
points to either a huge contradiction
or a gigantic misunderstanding”
there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose …
… our response
… our growth
… our freedom
1. Asking others what they should do.
2. Thinking God decides who gets what.
3. Worrying about how their dream will come true.
4. Thinking they have dues to pay.
5. Attaching to unimportant details and outcomes.
6. Failing to forgive.
7. Thinking karma or spiritual contracts are absolute.
8. Fear of anything, especially falling in love.
9. Waiting for their ducks to line up before acting.
10. Choosing to be unhappy.
Understand the truth, little bird, and you will soar.
To be happy or not is always a choice
I think the last 3 of these are Notes from the Universe.
