Along with the power outage, I developed an upper respiratory infection which has had a similar impact of being hungry, angry, lonely or tired – H.A.L.T. And Sick. When I am hungry, angry, lonely, tired or sick I have found that I am more vulnerable to stinking thinking. Stinking thinking can negatively impact the way in which I respond or react to what people say in my interactions with them.
With my awareness, I realize that I am prone to stinking thinking and adversely reacting to specific people and what they say to me. Because of this realization, I have chosen to limit my interactions with them, rather than be unkind to them by reacting to their good intentions. By doing so I am taking care of myself while honoring the relationship.
What I have found in life is that it is not so much what happens to me that is important, but how I respond to what happens in my life. Rather than reacting to what happens to me – because of my expectations and my stinking thinking – I have found that I can choose to learn about myself because of my expectations and my stinking thinking.
I do not do this perfectly. The goal is spiritual progress, rather than spiritual perfection.
