CREDOS: Coincidences — III

When you go to bed at night, before you fall asleep, sit up for a few minutes and imagine that you are witnessing on the screen of your consciousness everything that happened during the day. See your day as a movie. Watch yourself waking up in the morning, brushing your teeth, having breakfast, driving to work, conducting your business, coming home, eating dinner — everything in your day right up to bedtime. There is no need to analyse what you see, or evaluate, or judge... just watch the movie.

See it all. You may even notice things that did not strike you as important at the time. You may notice that the colour of the hair of the woman behind the drugstore counter was the same as your mother’s when you were young. Or you might pay special attention to a little child who was crying as his mother was dragging him down a supermarket aisle. It’s amazing the things that show up in the movie of your day that you may not have consciously noted during the day itself.

As you watch your day go by in the movie, take this opportunity to view yourself objectively. You may find yourself doing something that you’re particularly proud of, or at times you may notice yourself doing things that are embarrassing. Again, the goal is not to evaluate, but to get little insights this character that is your self. When the recapitulation is over, say to yourself, “Everything that I’ve witnessed, this movie of a day in my life, is now safely stored away.” — Beliefnet.com
