Infective affinities 1 - He/she shouldn’t have another one

To thoughts which are inimical to Yoga , contrary thoughts will be brought. (Patanjali)


“There are people and experiences that you can flush out in fifteen days, like the snails” After formulating such a profound and mighty thought, Hilde took her Worksheet and decided to complete Byron Katie’s exercise. A ray of evening light was filtering from the window: in Bippendorf, a nice suburb of Bon-Bon town, the sunset was showing its most beautiful colors. Hide imagined that such a blade of light, as a laser, could pierce in that instant her confused and exhausted mind as well.  

‘Find at least three specific, genuine examples of how each turnaround is as true as or truer than the original statement.’ This was the task of the exercise. Hilde concentrated. The original statement said “Mark shouldn’t have had another woman”. If grammar and logic were not just an opinion, the first turnaround would transform the sentence from a negative to positive one: “Mark should have had another woman”.
True. So it had been and it was still, de facto. He had at least a dozen women at the same time, or so it seemed. To be totally honest, Hilde remembered the feeling of relief and liberation when she had seen Mark with his new fling. She had also wondered why…after all she should have felt hurt, wounded, humiliated, or at the very least, cheated. But probably such feelings were even too noble in relation to their seedy background.
