Your thought to ponder for today: a slow read through THE SEER. Day 30. [all material from the book appears in italics]:
Me: You gave me an exercise after the last recognition– to distinguish between my circumstance and how I am within my circumstance. Is this what you mean about orienting?
Virgil: Partially. Making the distinction between your circumstance and who you are within your circumstance is very important. Most people confuse the two: they think they are their circumstance. For instance, your business failed and so you started calling yourself a failure. You confused yourself with your circumstance. Circumstance: your business failed. Story: I am a failure. Another possible story: I learn from my experiences. It is important for you to continue to make this distinction. This is only one aspect of orienting yourself in your life.
