DATE: October 16 TEACHER: Jeff Warren THEME: Being There for Others MEDITATION: This is Me with Good Boundaries INTERACTIVE: This is Me Swamped and Bleeding Sideways Into Your Eyeball
Jeff: I know what being there for others means: it means secretly imagining I am personally responsible for the happiness of each person I meet and making sure to get helplessly entangled in their psychic dramas so I can get overwhelmed and leave them confused and worse off than they were before. Or at least, that’s how I used to do it, when I wasn’t drunk. Then I learned about b-o-u-n-d-a-r-i-e-s. Apparently they have these in some countries. This Monday, we practice healthy action in relationship – ie, how to NOT merge into a flabby sea of oneness.
