On pronouns and self-protection
After a call I was on last week, about this Conscious Learning programme, I re-listened to what (we all and) I said [watch recording here] and spotted what was bothering me; I used ‘you’ instead of ‘I’ when expressing myself.
This is often (and most likely) a sign of self protection. So it is interesting to note that however much I do this work, I still feel the need to protect myself from telling myself what I clearly need to hear. If I can do it more consciously, next time I would say that ‘I need to accept… to become me’ which is clearly true for me but not for every body.
This is a great learning point (for me) as it exposes the fact that I don’t need to tell everyone about death and collapse. It raises the useful questions of who I tell and how I tell them. Most importantly it reminds me of what I (still) need to accept.
It is amazing to think that we are all going through these learning moments which (perhaps?) bring about collective transformations.
