Wise Action

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Reflect upon the areas of your life where your actions are embedded in an old view of yourself and where your intentions remain arrested within a view of separation and fear. For example, you may have inward feelings of unworthiness and at the same time have some understanding of the unreality of these old assumptions. Your identification with those old thoughts may keep you paralyzed in self-doubt and unable to embody in action a new perception of self-acceptance. Wise action is moving in accordance with the truth of who you are, not waiting for the old feelings to subside. The old pattern must be brought into wise action for the complete resolution of the old pain. Write down four or five actions you could take to counter the assumptions of self-doubt. Now set those actions in motion. Do not wait for your emotions to tell you the timing is right or the old thoughts to let go of their mental grasp. They never will. New feelings and thoughts about yourself will arise after a number of attempts to align yourself to what is true.
