15 October 2016 — Making Excuses to Ourselves
As we chatter mentally to ourselves, with one part of our ‘self’ sometimes feeling a little uneasy with what another part is thinking, we rationalise trying to justify those thoughts and the actions which stem from them. It is as if one part of us is the child ‘us’ making excuses to our parents for behaviour of which they do not approve. The two hemispheres of our brain — the rational and the intuitive side are often in conflict. with one taking the child role and the the other the parental role. The Point of Power becomes ours when we are able to acknowledge that we are not seeing things as being as ‘black and white’ as we would like and to accept that once we have acted it would MOST CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN THE RIGHT ACTION — our mental chatter will then tend to cease naturally.
