Re: Guilt and Forgiving
- Thank you for your insights. I will be practicing
your advice.<br><br> This whole situation started over
a power play, that I didn't want to participate in.
Then, regretfully, I allowed myself to get sucked into
the game - and lost. I was unaware of what I would be
loosing. At first, I thought it was power. Now, I've come
to the conclusion that it was indeed power, but not
being over powered by another, as I initially thought.
Rather, I gave my power to her, by allowing myself to get
pulled into her bitterness. I allowed my ego to take
over, thus taking that control/power away from myself.
That is a lesson I seem to keep coming back to.
<br><br> My mistake lead to the loss of a professional and
needed relationship, but hopefully gained at least a
small amount of new self awareness<br><br> What's the
phrase about only learning from our mistakes? Good
grief, I think I'll be a Ph.d in this field eventually.
:)<br><br> Thank you again. Your kindness and beauty are
evident, far beyond the reaches of a computer
screen.<br><br> Respectfully,<br> Vicki

I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.
I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.
