I should be more careful

I will share an experience I had and it made me rethink what I will discuss with people. I was doing a certain practice that I seemed to have evolved naturally into, it gave me plenty of energy, I needed less sleep, I seemed more content, and seemed to have more clarity. I was happy and excited about my "accomplishment". at the time it had come easy to me, with no strain. I told my instructor/guru/whatever about it and he said that it seems like I was ready for it and it was my time. WHen I told him about it I said it for two purposes, to let him know where I was at and I was also proud of myself. SO I told him with my ego and my heart, but more ego then heart. I felt good about his words of praise and my "accomplishments". Well guess what, it went away. The day after I spoke of it was the last day I had the experience.

I spoke of something sacred to me as if it were trivial and I paid the price.

Now I will tell him only what is needed, I will share only what my heart needs to share, cause the ego got involved and the flower I had withered away. but not to worry a new flower will bloom out of this and when it does I will be more carefull.

just a personal observation

... the only person whose opinion matters is YOUR heart your inner teacher!

The rest is just ego.

I have had this happen to me aswell!

Thanks for sharing.

Dear Tube,

Spirit don't like pride, it is attachement and the moment we get attached Spirit will ensure that you get dettached again. Had a few of those, fortunately they were very humbling experiences and one learns quickly from them, it took me about 5 to learn my leasson, sun sign is taurus, a bit stubborn you see.
