Artists Way Wk3
This time I didn't agree with most of what was said in the chapter. The one that I truly didn't agree with was the section on synchronicity. The idea that you really want something to happen and so it does. Yes, I'm the cynic who believes that when this happens it is merely coincidence. I don't think that because I really want something to happen that it will. I believe that if you really want something to happen then you have to make it happen. Nobody should assume that things are going to be handed over to you on a plate. I just don't think that life should be lived waiting for things to happen. Most of us (myself included) are good at doing that and I think that most of us learned a long time ago that life just doesn't work that way. Apparently Jung believed in this. He wrote an essay on it. I tried to see if I could find it but had no luck.
Next week I am still going to continue but there is one part that I refuse to do. There is no way that I am doing reading deprivation. I am not allowed to read anything unless of course I have to for work. No chance. I love reading and I couldn't go a week without it. I don't want to go a week without it and I'm not even going to try. I haven't fully read the chapter yet but I saw that part when I glimpsed through it.
