I thought it would be nice if we had a place to express our battles with self-importance. I’m having a difficult time eliminatiing it 😆
It boggles my mind the extent of self-importance. It is so pervasive, it is a miracle that anyone could ever find his or her way out of that labrinth. I have recently discovered, thru the recapitulation, that my progress thus far (2yrs) has mainly just brought me to the point where I can see what self-importance truly is, and how I manifest it in my life.The recapitulation was a hard sell for me. I always thought I didn’t need it. In my mind I was acting like a warrior should act, and every day I would tweek what I thought a warrior acted like, hoping to find the right combination. I put my EVERYTHING into this task, and when I finally thru up my hands and admitted defeat things changed and became clear. But alas it has just brought me to the point where I can see the work I have in front of me and the fear I have of my truth. It blows to seemingly start over, and I am shocked, embarressed and confused at having the first true glimpse of my “self” (which is repulsive by the way :blink: ). So now I tell myself that I am a warrior only when I’m not looking, because it is something I can never become. And I can’t help but cling tighter to the only things I am sure of. My path with heart and my Unbending Intent.
