Here’s a brief overview of living patterns.
ON STAGE PARTICIPATION
you know your lines,
other people’s lines,
and the props.
All are familiar.
You have done this many, many times.
You are living with BLINDERS on.
When you are in a pattern, you
only have one way to react,
one way to respond.
You have lost your
freedom of choice.
Live life with a limited view.
Can’t see beyond your stuckness.
Something TRIGGERS YOU.
Imagine you are going along your day
when BOOM! someone says a line to you
and your reaction is intense, almost instant,
and way out of proportion for the circumstance.
Or, it may cause the opposite effect,
you “shut down” and your self-worth plummets.
All from a line spoken to you.
A line that has hit up against your inner world.
You are now in your knee-jerk automatic response.
No freedom of choice, it is an automatic response.
And, then you REPEAT the cycle.
