I would like to contribute to the forum and share what I’ve been thinking about.
Personality is so part of our culture and so hard to deal with. Just being a part of the group is at odds with our individualistic culture. I am in Africa at the moment and they don’t have quite the same cult of individualism here. I really do understand the point but coping with ego, mine and other people’s, sometimes feels like being in a mountain range.
My biggest need is for security which stops me being more generous or more able to make the changes I need to make in my life. I am carrying a lot of fear around and I am not sure what to do about it.
The one parami I have made absolutely no headway on is energy. Perhaps this matters more than I thought.
It is not all negative though! My understanding is increasing and the music is lovely!
