Containment

I have been practicing putting my attention on containing my energy as I go through my day.

That means being aware if I am spreading any ‘sloppy’ energy around possibly affecting anyone in close range.

Am I frustrated? Angry? Numb? Blameful? Overtaxed? Overstimulated? Afraid? Gossipy? Bored?

I see that in any of these states, I want to get rid of it so I often let it indiscriminately seep into conversations or meetings or even my relationship with my dog.

I resent it when people use me as a dumping ground.

But I do it alot, too.

There’s a big difference between times when depth is invited and when it isn’t.

Cathy: pay attention..pay attention..pay attention..

It is probably the biggest community service we can offer.
