what a gift the zoom session was on tuesday and the deeply wise comments here.
on the top of each day’s page in my planner this month , i am writing “what is true and what is not?”
As far as discernment is concerned, the question of “what is true ” is key. Over these many months, and years, the experience of feeling below feelings signals to me what is true and what is not. (welcoming prayer )
if something of discordance comes up, that signals to me that something is off about my perception or behavior. for example i want to tell my friend that something she suggested (an online retreat ) was not helpful to me , without being unkind, Or when a grandaughter’s feelings were hurt in an online family get together, what was my share in that? looking back on my career, is the story i have beeen telling myself about that really true?
all the noise we whip up in our lives… is it just a way of avoiding the deep insight into what is true?
