Morning Zen

That feeling of growth and change. Necessary it is said is a sense of anexity in life as a marker of growth and change. Thinking back on living and just having and being without much change there was little anexity. There was stress and emotion only at a point where I felt wronged or slighted by the other. No change within. Wondering today if fallen back into patterns of old or if change and growth continues. Setting markers, goals. How does one set a goal in personal growth? How does one know when it is reached? A goal to answer the phone and return calls and accomplish the tasks on my list the physical necessary living and doing and being things verse the growth in the spirit.

life has anxiety with change, with stress, with consideration of change or stressful changes and decisions....for each individual it is different...

we tend to be over critical of ourselves for the most part....we have been well trained....
my mother, my teachers, my religious "tutors" would criticize me as a child, inflicting great guilt....some of the lines I recall well...."what will so and so think?"...."how will so and so feel?"....well, to a point it is good to be aware of the affects we may have on others, the feeling we think we may cause...on the other hand self sacrifice is not necessarily a noble thing.
past experiences mold us....
present experiences are those at hand which 'matter'.....
don't blame oneself....for those occurences over which we have no control....the reactions of others and the feelings of others are, to some extent significant for us....
on the other hand we do often impude ourselves with undeserved guilt and condemnation.
in general, we complicate life...
happiness and harmony.....
