Watching stream of thoughts- many were negative (judgments, worrisome what-ifs, past regrets). But compassion was there & awareness, curiosity was there & insight. The light shone in darkness.

In the light of awareness, could observe how shadowy thoughts manifested in body, perturbed mind, and interrupted the enjoyment of life. Countering judgment with blessing, self-criticism with acceptance & compassion, assumptions with curiosity.

Assuming responsibility for my thoughts & the emotions they generate has its challenges, but the practice, overall, is positive. Taking time to decompress, reflect, organize.

Spend 5 years seeing the mountains as mountains. Spend another 5 years seeing mountains as nothing. The rest of your life the mountains will be reality. We are all on the same journey to death, we all get wiser

my own distress. 'Where would you be without this thought?' I asked. It's a question from Byron Katie's 'WORK' which helped lessen the perturbation. Finished the Survivors Code. Now in sauna. Ice bath next.

I try hard to recognize those building thoughts of impatience and frustration. Usually they're from things of such little consequence once you realize it. Still hard to let go at times.

agreed. As men, those little irritations = secretions of stress hormones which may take time to dissolve. The nature of anger is such, however, that it distorts our perceptions such that even minor things trigger further annoyance.

while some progress has been made, we have a looong way to go. There remains much work to do. Not just rooting for women, but wanting to do more to promote progress. Convinced humanity will be much better off with more women in power at all levels.
