Sanguine Sunday - Morning
It’s morning, and I rest in the knowing that today shall be a “Sanguine Sunday.” But hold on, why do I call it that again? A quick review tells me why. But now it seems quaint that I once had a problem regarding the nature of Sundays. That feels like it was a long time ago.
@King told me that this idea of “feeling like this happened a while ago” is an important concept to understand:
…if you have been thinking that something happened a long time back, then most likely you have become detached from it and it isn’t bothering you at the moment. You have moved into a state where it isn’t bothering you now.
This is a really great point, although I wonder, can I use this understanding intentionally? By using “Rebirth” today I hope I can do so. One thing I realized from this is that quitting bad habits does not necessarily have to take a long time, given the right frame of mind about them. Or that even quitting so-called “addictions” doesn’t have to be a lifelong game. Perhaps 30 days, 60 days or 90 days (this final number being a popular number used for a particular habit) is enough to be able to think back and say, “That feels like it happened a long time ago.”
Thus I am able to accept much more this: in the process of moving away from undesired habits it may feel strange or weird at first, but eventually, it’ll be as if it was never there. This “eventually” does not have to mean a year or something that long.
I just think back to when I was using a certain guided meditation app to track my meditation habit and now it feels like I long time ago that I used that app. I quit it a few months ago, still going with meditation, and going to reach 4 years soon.
It’s become a trend as of late.
Is the last phrase a question? If so, my main goal is to induce lucid dreams. However, I don’t have a place in my schedule to run it regularly at this time.
