Step 35: Turn off the “projector!”

“Unforgiveness is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die – it ain’t gonna’ happen.”  ~My Grandma

 

Expect to be “SURPRISED” today.  What is your first reaction to that statement?

A) Oh yay ME! 

B) Oh Lord, what now? 

C) Hmmm, I wonder what that’s about? 

No matter the reaction it is a reaction of the Mind’s Movie Projector.  We unconsciously “PROJECT” an outcome based on a desire/expectation/hope.

A question, even of the simplest kind, is not, and never can be unbiased. The structure of any question is as devoid of neutrality as its content. The form of a question may ease our way or pose obstacles. Or, when even slightly altered, it may generate antithetical answers, as in the case of the two priests who, being unsure if it was permissible to smoke and pray at the same time, wrote to the Pope for a definitive answer. One priest asked, “Is it permissible to smoke while praying?” and was told it is not, since prayer should be the focus of one’s whole attention. The other priest asked if it is permissible to pray while smoking and was told that it is, since it is always permissible to pray.”
– Dr. Neil Postman, New York University

 

No one can measure what has NOT happened.  When asking someone about something that exists ONLY in their imagination, they will give an imaginary answer.   Humans are NOT able to measure what “would” of “would not” happen – We are able to measure what “DID” or “DID NOT” happen.  Unconscious thoughts are the best indicators of what a Human “WILL DO.”  In a moment of TRUTHthe Heart will be the deciding factor.  For today – pay attention to reactions/feelings when surprised.  It will reveal the MOVIE playing out in the Ego’s Mind.  If your life were a movie title, what would it be?  How about “The Road to Shameless.”  All is well! ❤
