Me, too, on not being on

Me, too, on not being on time.

I love this distinction between ambivalence and submission. Ambivalence is spinning wheels; submission is making choices at road forks and moving on. The journey changes us, and the decisions needn't be second guessed.

I agree entirely with your insight that the micro-practices you mention relate to long-term commitment, and I agree with your reasoning. A wonderful insight wonderfully expressed.

Dynamite sentence: "However, given all the energy submission frees up, hopefully we can be stronger and more alert to when rebelling is needed and submitting is toxic."

The being on time thing...

The being on time thing... ouch. Writing that blog entry actually caused me to be late. Much more submission required!

I like, "Ambivalence is spinning wheels; submission is making choices at road forks and moving on."
