Yogi assignment discipline by keno mcgregor of keno yoga dot com. I used to be a perfectionist. Or rather i used to think i had a true chains being perfect or getting all the things right. All the time somehow headed naive notion that if i just visualized hard enough and trained my vibration to be high enough that i never experienced any lows ever again. I live in some bubble of peace love and happiness. My life had something else in store for me this last year alone. I've stumbled and fallen so many times and made so many bad decisions. I can hardly be into account for them all failure or the recognition that. I did something wrong or that. Something i did was not good enough to meet the cut or that. I simply do not achieve. My goals is something that has been a hard and sometimes bitter pill for me to swallow. Perhaps you like me were raised with the narrative that you can do anything you want. If only you set your sights on it just think good vibes and be positive all the time and everything you want will magically come into being. I was told that. I was simply manifest my reality well while i have certainly accomplished a lot. There is so much more that i've tried and failed at and so much more that i experienced that did not go. According to my vision. I spent a good deal of time wondering how to reconcile the desire to stay in a continuous state of peace and harmony with the reality of continually falling out of that sweet spot lately of come to see the moments of failure as loving discipline rather than harsh punishment. While it'd be nice if we could always get it right. The reality is that we don't when we aren't able to stay on the path and make every decision according to the highest truth. Then it's important that we remain open to being rebuked disciplined educated enlightened both by the universe and by god and also by other people within our community is a necessary correction along the journey of life if the spiritual community seems to have a bit of payroll tax reading through the average list of spiritual quotes found. Online is evident that there is ample discussion on how to keep your oracle. Lean how to think only good vibes and how to remove toxic. People or situations bows often missing is how to process. He'll evolve and grow from the moments when feeling good vibes is simply not an option after admit that i get triggered sometimes when people respond to negative feedback by blocking the heaters and surrounding themselves with good vibes. Only i guess one of the reasons. I get triggered is because i know that no matter how hard i try just can't live in the bubble of good vibes. Only while i'm overall a general positive peaceful person who loves to laugh my also get angry. Sad to press anxious. I get things wrong. Mike often and all the time and when i do. I'm often sensitive to criticism. Almost like something inside of me. Feels like i should have done better. At keeping. The bubble of positivity defense at work design environment for growth. Though to assume that you will get it right. One hundred percent of the time and have no need for discipline is to assume that you already are perfect and they have no need for any further guidance. Sure sounds like hubris to me. It takes a very high degree of self confidence and spiritual strength to process negative feedback and grow from it. If you are a well intended spiritual person living a life committed to peace and love. It can feel truly unsettling if someone called you out on not living up to your integrity. If feels wrong. He had called out of your protective bubble. You may have inadvertently surround yourself. With an echo chamber that reinforces your beliefs about yourself. When those beliefs are questioned or challenged it can feel like a direct and personal assault. You may wanna lash out or even zone out. He may not want to put in the emotional labor required to work through all your stuff. But if you choose to dig your head in the sand you will be depriving yourself of an opportunity to grow from the experience much like a child who disciplined cannot grow from the experience while discipline is not always optional. Growth is of course optional. You can choose to disregard the voices of people who call you out as heaters. You can bolster your case of good person hood where he could pause reflect research and study the issue. He also say with your own feelings of discomfort until you come to clarity and compassion. It has been said that the truth will set you free but i it will piss you off by feminist gloria steinem among others. We face truth and feel angry. Lean into your rage especially when it's reactionary don't project or act out your anger until you fully processed it. Discipline or negative feedback is so vital to growth. Imagine if you're working at a new job and the boss was unhappy with your performance instead of telling you that your work wasn't up to the level required your boss has told you that you are awesome imperfect but then one day that same boss fired you. You'd be left feeling truly confused. If however your boss gave you the negative feedback that your work wasn't up to standard and listened ways. You might improve. It'd be up to respond in a way though at either ensure your evolution or demonstrate your ineptitude for the position me the way you actually need the negative feedback to grow. Life is an interested in whether or not your feelings get hurt. life is interested in helping you grow. You put all your heart into something only to have it fail or even worse. Blow up in. Your face is getting disciplined from the word is not meant to be punitive or harsh instead. It simply meant to be feedback giving you the opportunity to grow and learn and eventually rise up to meet the challenge that life is presenting to you. I kind of feel like our life lessons. Return and repeat until we get them like the universe is infinitely patient with us while we try over and over again to get the same lesson right. if we don't immediately get it. We have years to repeat man. Learn them all over again. This week's yogi assignment is disciplined. Change the way you view negative feedback instead of taking it personally. Recalibrate the story you tell about it. Think about negative feedback as an opportunity to reflect on your path if think about failure as the discipline of a loving force in the universe perhaps it shines light on a turn that you took in wrong direction or perhaps it makes you more sure about the direction that you are going either way. Remain open to experience of discipline that comes in the form of life lessons. Reflect on any recent negative feedback that you may have received or many recent failures. What can you learn from each of those experiences. Search for the life lesson contained within the discipline and seek to grow from it practice giving negative feedback to someone else. If you can phrase your words with as much love as possible and be sure that you truly do not come from hate yet if you notice that. Something is out of alignment. Whether in a person or organization and you choose to remain silent you may be depriving the person from an opportunity to grow and evolve
