I awoke yesterday with the pharse "Not good nor bad but thinking makes it so." on my mind. Though familiar, I don't know where that phrase is from but I do know that it is the right message for me.
There is more than one way to disconnect from emotional reaction. There are forms of training and then there is direct physiological interference. I think I may try to go at it from both directions.
Today I am going to give a number of things a try in suppressing the anxiety surges: minchex, kavakava, chamomille tea, magnesium taurate and maybe even my favorite - tequila.
Clearly, the valuation of acts and things around (attaching valences) sets up emotional reactions and interferes with I/M. "ATTACHMENT" knocked on my brain yesterday. "ATTACHMENT" The proverbial light bulb illuminated along with the thought that those things which I need most and long for most heartfelt are those which I struggle most with I/M.
Time to detach. Who has a tried and true method?
