MOLESKINE:   

  • Phenomenon: an observable fact or event.  
  • Story: an account of incidents or events, not necessarily true.

Suffering often comes from stories I/we make up.  An example:

A FNG is walking toward you on the sidewalk and as he gets within four feet he grimaces, turns his head away and keeps on going.

What happened?  The phenomena; (1) FNG was walking, (2) FNG grimaced, (3) FNG turned his head & kept walking.  Anything else is a story.  This plays out daily in our personal and professional lives.  It’s not wrong to make up stories.  The question is, do you realizeyou are making stories?

(In the above story the FNG had an earpiece in you didn’t see and was reacting to the phone conversation he was on.  The reason for turning his head?  He was about to sneeze.  The reason he kept walking?  He didn’t recognize you outside of the gloom.)

YHC is ashamed to say I lit the fuse…..

Then set off some figurative fireworks this past weekend at the home front.  You may have seen them!  

I chose to be in upset and the men at PFT saw it.  Why do I share this? ‘Cause we all make up stories and step in it and I hope to save at least one person from making this same mistake. So, swallowing the bitter pill of my own advice I went to the tapes.  I reflected upon what actually happened…the phenomenon. I then wrote out three different stories for each situation.  Three stories that were big enough to live in.  Hey, if I’m going to make up a story about the event it might as well be a good one!! I then re-read my stories and observing how my body reacted to each story and then went with the one that would serve.  By focusing on phenomenon and creating a story that was big enough to live in, YHC was able to center myself and come back to my wonderful M to begin again our life dance.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.
~Rumi

What stories have you been making up?
Were they big enough to line in and are they serving?

STOP…..breathe…..be aware (beware) of the stories you are making up.

Aye!
