complaining vs observation & reactions
Good Morning everyone.
Today I’d like to discuss PL. Principle 2 ” I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.”
This is a lesson that I reappears in my life over and over again. I don’t see myself as a complainer, however, there are times when I feel that my feelings or work is not appreciated. It is true, that I do things because I want to. I also love what I do. why then do I seem to want some kind of feedback, or acknowledgement of my creativity. Please dear reader, understand these are musings. In Principle 2, as you read above, I am to work at not having complaints about others, yet, there are times when I definitely feel that someone or others are simply not responding to a request I’ve made or given feedback on a subject that pertains to something we share or are both involved in. I ask myself, is it complaining to speak up, put my thoughts and feelings on the table? Or, is it being honest and open about something that bothers me?
PL Principle 6 I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.
PL Principle 17, I will not say or do things that hurt others.
PL Principle 14, I will not have a mind to be lazy, I will not have complaints while working, nor be overly concerned and complain about others.
Some days, when not sure just where to “land”…. when you feel that your head is in one place and your thoughts in another… I do what makes me feel better, I meditate and pray. I remember that PL Precept 18 reminds me that “Each Moment is a turning Point”
Be with God
Today, and everyday
