Can you know for certain it’s true?
What happens, how do you react, when you have that belief?
I have an impulse to push/encourage him, and I see it’s from a belief, so I am caught in a struggle between pushing and holding back.
I feel frustrated. Uncomfortable. Tense.
I have beliefs: I understand something he doesn’t, he doesn’t trust me, he doesn’t/should acknowledge my insights, he’s stubborn and thick headed, I get it and he doesn’t, I know what’s going to help him, I need him to listen to me/take me seriously, I need him to know that I am right.
Who would you be without the thought?
Appreciating that he knows what he wants, what feels right for him in the situation.
Appreciating that life shows me where the group is not going to be.

I should be open to question any thought.

The worst that can happen in my life is for me to stay confused.

By being confused, I may play a role for them that’s important, helpful for them.
It’s best for the world because…
