Kind and encouraging exchange of ideas among friends…for everyday life

5/25/12 It’s not the situation we need to focus on, it’s how we choose to react towards it

This card has Jampa’s response to a question/reflection
in the comments section of  the May 21st post:
“the real shift has to come from your own reactions…”

  1. Kathy, Just read Jampa’s reply tonight and responded. I agree, it is a good practice to focus on our reactions and not the situation. This way we also don’t get pulled into the dynamics of another’s ego.

  2. It was a nice surprise to see him there…I found the comment a few minutes after he had left it…I felt like I’d seen him walking down the street by me…a nice surprise.

    I’m really trying to practice stepping back and watching my own reactions and to learn more about my own “ego” reaction from observing myself…there sure are LOTS of lessons! 🙄
    (btw…that stepping back and watching are what Jampa was encouraging me to do…every single day…when he was here…. here’s a link to a post with those ideas…I made them into pages and added my own explanations but all the ideas are from him https://reflectionsfromafriend.wordpress.com/2012/03/31/331-learning-to-transform-negative-thinking-into-positive-notice-stop-step-back/
