How do you experience subjective time?
Does time seem shorter objectively than you thought, or longer? Or does the perception of time passing play no role?
A human being has 3 centers (or brains): intellectual, physical/instinctive and emotional. In the ideal (permanent absence of identity mechanisms) each of the brains functions independently. One of the main features of identity is to create great confusion by switching from one to the other, and by allowing one of the brains to activate itself for something that can only be accomplished by another, creating a real cerebral hullabaloo…
We haven’t talked about injustice yet, it’s one of the subjects we can go into here…
It’s played out in everyday life, with all the little injustices that we suffer and that we also make others suffer in our lives.
What is sacrifice for you?
For me, sacrifice is mostly sacrificing unnecessary suffering.
To dare the unknown.
The subject we are going to discuss now is anticipation.
I can tell you a "secret": I’m not bored. In moments when nothing happens, my brain works in anticipation;
This morning, L., M. and I talked about a half-dead tree. L. mentioned the idea of cutting it down, but as this tree is at the neighbor’s, I said that we should not cut it down, but simply remove the ivy that is blocking it. And actually M. went to cut it down. M. I’d be interested to know what you heard, what you didn’t hear and why?Read more...
I’d like to talk about listening. I’ve noticed that there are two listenings. Often, we think we’re listening, but in fact it’s the personality that listens without really listening, because at the same time we anticipate what we’re going to say to the other person; so we’re not in total listening.
I’ve often noticed that I say things to people, and I have the impression that it comes in through one ear and out through the other, because there’s often no follow-up. However, I have not observed any rejection of what I have asked for. With A. it happened to me several times, do you remember? I asked you to do something, and you didn’t do it.
