How have these practices helped you?

Last summer I learned (from routine screening) that I had experienced a silent heart attack. Subsequent investigation confirmed and showed damage.

Lots of fear was triggered.

At one point, I went into the we voice and asked what are we afraid of? Dying? No.

Then what? Answer came back, in the impersonal voice, dying alone.

Oh. What can we do about it?

Answer popped into my head. Oh, nothing…but when the time comes we will all join hands and go over the waterfall together! I (personal voice) just broke out laughing. In stitches for a few minutes.

Frankly, I (personal voice) have been at peace with the situation since then.

This one was a “biggie,” but most of life’s challenges are not. I routinely use the we voice just to check with all my parts and to see what’s going on.

It is an honest, open, and intimate experience.

A friend at dinner the other night spontaneously said that she thought I was awakening.

Could be, at least to a small extent.

I, we, it, and best thinking are all certainly happier and suffer a lot less. Something is changing!
