Saving Memories (Day 21)

During my whole life many songs have been part of my memories. When I listen to them again I feel the same feelings and emotions when I first listened to them.

As I was aware of this point I have manipulated something that came from natural to intentional. For instance, every time I go on holidays I like to download a new band's album in order to "save the moment", so later when I listen to the songs again I am transported to the past towards those "positive" feelings that were part of my life and I allow myself to abuse of memories to bring me something back that I miss because it no longer exists.

I have also done the same with images. When I was 12 years old I remember I moved to another city with my family. It was Sunday night and I was roller-skating. I did not want that moment to end. I wanted to make it last forever in my mind, so I focused on how I was moving; I looked my shadow and took a mind picture that I am able to access whenever I want now.

I wanted to save that moment because the next day I was going to have my first day at school; I was going to be the new student and I was not sure how things were going happen. So, I held onto that specific moment to remain positive, but from fear.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to shoot mind pictures to save a moment in which I feel good in order to remember it whenever I want.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to let those mind pictures be my definition of "I". 

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to think/believe that I am my memories.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to hold onto memories because I fear the future.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to fear the future.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to think/believe that holding onto memories I am going to be "good".

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to intentionally shoot mind photographs to abuse them later.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to think/believe that due to my "ability" to take mind photographs I have the right to do it whenever I want because it's part of me = my definition of self.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to define myself as the experiences that I turned into memories.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to activate the mind pictures when I go into songs.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to use songs as a memory keeper.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to go into songs every time I am going to experience something new so as to have a memory within my mind system.

I forgive myself that I have allowed and accepted myself to escape from reality when activating mind pictures/songs trying to make my past exist now and here in my current existence.

When and as I see myself shooting mind pictures and going into songs in order to save a moment and then create a memory that activates whenever I allow myself to go towards memories/songs, I stop and breathe. I realize that every time I am going into memories I am getting distracted from my current existence and self-honesty as breath, as the physical expression of self believing/thinking that I am memories.

I commit myself to stop abusing these techniques that I have acquired/developed since I was a kid every time I have to experience something for the first time in order to be here in every moment and every breath.

I commit myself to bring me back to my physical human body with one breath every time I catch myself wandering within my thoughts/memories/feelings/emotions.

I commit myself to live every new experience without the desire to remain positive through mind pictures/songs.

Getting Angry with Students (Day 30)

Within my job as a teacher I can remember a few moments in which I took things personal, but they happened during my first year. Now, I am on my third year as a teacher and it's hard for me to get angry with students, because I prefer to address the issue through communication and agreements.
Today, I got angry with a student and I didn't even realize it until another student that was next to me said "teacher, don't get angry".
The scenario went as it follows:
Students were presenting oral reports. Before they start, I take the time to tell the class that they have to be quiet while their classmates are performing, because I have to assess them and if there's too much noise, I can't hear very well.
It was hard to me to keep them completely quiet today - teachers know that not all lessons with the same class work the same due to different factors -. So, I had to constantly stop and say "guys, be quiet. Your classmates are performing". That happened d…

When You See Only What You Want To See (Day 162)

Someone made an observation about me after communicating with them a couple of times. They noticed that I tend to see only what I want to see; meaning, that I understand things in the wrong way.

At first I was within myself like “But, how can that be possible if I try to be objective when I observe or listen to the information being shared?”, until today while watching a video and then, when giving it a second watch, I realized that “Hey, the first time I watched the video I understood something completely different to what I am understanding now”.
So, I asked myself “Why did that happen?” and in self-honesty I can say that I was not fully aware of what I was doing. I was watching the video, but at the same time having a chat and also concerned about a problem I had. 
It’s like for moments I am paying attention, but then I go into my mind. Then, I get back to my body/awareness and I listen to the information and ‘understand what I want to understand’ or what it’s related to what I was t…

Mr. Nice [Day 174]

I read a conversation between two people where they were talking about me. Person A was sharing a ‘problem’ that had had with me, while Person B was judged by me as Mr. Nice, because they were not supporting Person A, but adding more to the problem. What I mean by ‘adding more’ = no practical support, but continue talking about the same thing, without a solution, but only supporting Person A’s words without questioning them.

What I didn’t like was that for instance Person A was saying stuff like “He said/did this and that, fuck him”, while Person B went “Yes, that’s too bad,he is wrong, I understand what you are going through. Fuck him”, without even knowing me in person, without even talking to me once at least. So, I went within myself “This person thinks they know me? Plus, Person A’s arguments were an interpretation of the events, so Person B was basically reacting to Person A’s reaction. That’s why I say it was not supportive, but reactive.
Why did I judge Person B as ‘Mr. Nice’? …
