Far From 1964 Dorothea Tanning
Self-development at Desteni I Process is really un-selfdevelopment.
I started to see how I created myself — layer upon layer, and then I started to change within walking backward, especially through looking at the specific the words I have used…
It’s like: “well if I can create that within me…that bitch, that insecure person, that bombast etc. then I can, by the same principle, create a me that is being and becoming a person of self-honesty.
I see the toll of living within an operating system of mal-adaptation, and like the rings on an old growth tree, the effects are evident in my physical body and my physical world and because one effects the other, I take responsibility to have a critical look at what I have created.
The patterns within and without demonstrate the unnecessary punishment we have meted out to ourselves and this world – not realizing we created this and we defined it – so where’s the disconnect?
Reading and listening to interviews on Eqafe, and the working through the lessons of Desteni I Process has helped me to see and understand the disconnect – I see my full responsibility for every relationship and for every outcome of every relationship, and how it always comes back to self-honesty and if I am willing to challenge my own beliefs.
I see how the act of taking responsibility for every thought, word and action requires a review of language – how I live and have lived words and what words I choose for my future. It’s a new kind of alchemy – new to me anyway!
