Spirit

I think it's very important, and unfortunately rare, for people to be fully aware of personal boundaries and concentrate on their own objectives.

It is important that you constantly ask yourself to discriminate between what is yours and what belongs to others. What feelings, values, beliefs and emotional patterns are yours to work on?

The lesson is to respect your own boundaries and not invade others' space. Learn to keep your energy clear; and speak your truth without condemning or judging. Why is it is so hard for people to resist thinking that they know better about anyone else's situation? Why is it is o hard for people to become more self-sufficient?

People need to develop the ability to become their own best teammate and to focus their brilliance on their own mission -- concentrating on the things that are their business, accepting less interference from others, and doing less interfering.

The problem, of course, is figuring out which fiction of one's true self to center on. By "fiction," I mean not in the sense of "fake" so much as "made." Our sense of who we are is the product of our own intellectual labor working on experiences over which we have limited control. Not relying overly on others requires that we decide which parts of ourselves are more "ours" than "theirs."

Ah, lovely points. Of course. The first step, which many seem never to take, is acknowledging the "fiction" in the first place. But once achieved, from there.. a bit tricky, that: using your own cognition to determine your predominate cognitive bias(es). And more time should be spent on it than is. I believe that everyone could metaprogram, if they only did not squander their energy elsewhere.
