Here’s a good example of the real world and your mind. The image reflection of the sky is affected by the ripples of time and space. For in time and space, things occur.
The reality is so clear and bright, but our minds can be heavily influenced by feelings, thoughts and emotions, the whole image can be lost.
When we start out on a spiritual path we often have ideals we think we’re supposed to live up to. We feel we’re supposed to be better than we are in some way. But with this practice you take yourself completely as you are. Then ironically, taking in pain - breathing it in for yourself and all others in the same boat as you are - heightens your awareness of exactly where you’re stuck.
In every moment we make a decision — whether conscious or unconscious. Will I choose to open my heart, send love, withhold judgment and thus free myself from fear? Or will I close my heart, project fear instead of extending love, judge others, and thus bind myself to fear? The choice is mine and mine alone.

i find being a leo i can often be let down by other people (family and friends). as a leo, i hold myself to high expectations in everything i do. i want to be the best friend, lover, driver, [insert hobby here], ect. When other people around me don’t hold themselves to these same expectations i can become disappointed. I have to learn to realize that not everyone has the same thought process as me and not everyone holds those same high expectations for themselves.
I have the same problem. Disappointment comes from a mismatch of our expectations and reality of the person of subject of our disappointment. I find when in feeling this way toward someone or myself, I’m taking life way too serious and need to have a good laugh at myself.
Life ain’t meant to be taken that seriously.
oncereluctantfangurl asked: A question for fellow INTJ-ers. It's the end of the work day, how long does it take you to switch from 'work-mode' to 'leave-mode'? I'm on like a 3 minute plan, and it always confuses me when I see co-workers take half an hour or more to make the transition. It that just me? Or is it INTJ pre-planning/strategy in practice?
I actually don’t know. I keep all my things organized so that when it’s time to leave, all I have to do is grab my purse and leave. idk…I guess I’m in leave mode the second I get to work lol.
I don’t think this is an mbti. Work is typically a social environment which is artificial so as intj we all deal with it however is most efficient according to our ability to understand ourselves.
