Trigger Event: Path of Insight vs Ego

Trigger events are touchpoints for us to turn inwards, find the root cause & deepen our Sadhna. Here’s an example, inspired by a student’s post on Day 1 of Vedna.

 

 

Pranam. My learning from today’s event in Aarambh.
After the session, when I did OTB after bath, the following are the insights:

a) I attracted the event of not being invited to the session.
b) I realized how my emotions were completely different from how I would have reacted 4 months ago. If it was earlier times, I would have got angry, vented out by calling out in the session, etc. I do realize this kind of reaction would have come from the belief of being unloved (ignored in this case), loneliness/unworthiness, and the ego surfacing as anger to be a good survivor.
c) Today, I did not get these emotions and was glad that I was indeed called and was able to join, though I was not prepared mentally.
d) I felt, this event perhaps came more as a ‘test’ and it looks like I did not fall into the trap, thanks to Chetna.

So the next time an event triggers you, we hope that you turn inward with awareness and ground in an insight.
