Be mindful.

At the root of every emotion is the urge to act; impulse is inherent in emotion.

More often than not.

You act these emotional impulses out without a moment of consideration.

Anger translates into lashing out; fear into withdrawal; hurt into tears.

  • To stop repeating self-defeating habitual reactions, resulting in the opposite of what you hope for.
  • To access that gap between intention and action. To use the power of a veto to break the chain of habit.
  • To recognize what ordinarily was an invisible chain of automatic sequences leading you on through life.

To come onto the screen of awareness, suddenly giving you a choice point where before there was none.

Be mindful.

Are you not tired of going along with the impulse to act?

Don’t you want the power to just say no?

I do.
