After we overstretched ourselves yesterday considering how many things we taken on that is not ours, today we travel to France where I used a lens that expanded the image, the same what as our consciousness expands when we consider other aspects of self.
If you have been following these entries since the begining, I hope that your own sense of self has expanded some what. With each questions, with each response the person you were yesterday is no more and your inner world grows to encompass the new information.
Do you ever feel like your mind is literally so stretched that you feel it is about to explode? that can happen when your current reality is tested; and it's limits or it's presentation comes into conflict with the new information. Until we incorporate the new knowledge and integrate it in our mind and body; the brain will feel literally stretched to the max. In those moments the best thing to do is, to just allow that knowledge to wash over you, and redirect somewhere else. For most of us a bit of time needs to elapse for the new knowledge to settle and seep in. We need to unlearn all that we know or knew and re-learn, that is a process that take time and an open mind, and of course most beliefs most views of self have been embeded over long periods of time from the moment of conception. Many people do not realise or recognise the biological component of the self; that some things are passed on via our DNA, so things are developed in utero, and that how we operate in the world is not just from the moment we become aware of who we are, but is deceloped much earlier.
What new information have you picked up about yourself that you were not aware of before? Has your point of view changed at all since you were a child, or do you hold the same truths as self evident? In what way is your inner world expanded since you were a todler? Actually, are you still a todler when it comes to your emotional world, or have developmed a moe mature way of coping with the world?
