Lets make Facebook our Tolle Practice. We have to work with the world we have, and we are here on Facebook together so lets make it our place of practice. So what or how shall we practice?
Make Facebook your friend, because when you are on FB, it is the present moment. So how do I get in alignment with Facebook? Facebook is where we just share an experience, maybe painful, and our friends “sendi thoughts and prayers,” or you make a statement of your view, and your friends go “Amen” and your enemies go “you’r an idiot.” And that starts a threat of knots, where. you try to turn the “idiot” into an “Amen.” We resist or devalue the Now of the criticism.
This thread of knots of Amen versus Idiot can go for days. And no one can stop it until it just dies of exhaustion or un-friending. Tolle Practice on FB turns Velcro to Teflon.
(2) I welcome the “idiot” comment. It took. years of peeling back the layers of Velcro to find the Teflon behind the shield. The critical comments just don’t stick.
(2) Once I don’t react to the “idiot” comment, I allow the opposing opinion to sit there, to have the right to exist, and a creative response happens—instead of the ego reaction to not being liked and validated. The thread then moves forward, at least on my part, without tying another knot. You use the critical reaction of the other as as creative stimulus to increase understanding.
The knots are slip knots when I don’t put my pain in the loop that stops the knot from slipping. When you put you Ego in the loop of the slip knot, the knot just squeeze your ego like a lemon. You become sour.
