Worth Recognizing

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:46 am

I was out and about over the weekend and had occasion to notice some very “poor” behavior. It’s really easy to go into judgement mode in that case, but this time I went a step further.

As I was about to let my judgement rule the day, The Grasshopper popped in and had this to say: “We are not who we pretend to be.”

It’s not like I haven’t had or expressed that thought before, but this time it was perfectly placed. The person I was about to continue to judge was only showing me their conditioned self, and I was about to respond to them with my conditioned self. It’s a puppet show I’ve been in before – My hand puppet about to judge their hand puppet.

My pretend self was about to judge their pretend self and the only thing that would have done for me is have me continue to live in the land of make-believe.

My rules of behavior, which, for the most part, I had nothing to do with, were about to judge their rules. I was about to judge them for who they weren’t. Then I noticed who was doing the judging – the part of me that pretends to be me.

It’s really a revealing moment to notice. It’s a moment that you notice that your reaction isn’t really you. It’s a conditioned, automatic reaction that has a mind of its own, separate and apart from who you really are – a person with a choice.

It’s worth recognizing that you have a choice when you notice that you’re about to display some automatic behavior. Noticing often delivers a different, more refreshing response instead of a stale representation of our conditioning.

As you are out and about over the holidays, your judgement will be tested. Will you be in the puppet show again or will you make another choice? It’s the difference between pretending and being a real live person with a choice.

 

All the best,

John
