Try to develop some awareness in day to day life of the "mind theatre" ... the thoughts and emotions that arise in the mind, and your reactions to various circumstances.
Watch your behavior patterns as things happen throughout your day.
What triggers various emotions?
What reactions and behavior do they set off in you?
When you stub your toe, watch.
When you meet someone in your family about whom you hold strong emotions, watch.
When you get a red light when late for work, watch.
When someone says something with which you strongly disagree, watch
When someone says something flattering to you. watch.
When someone says something insulting to you, watch.
When you are feeling rested, or feeling tired, how does that change your mood? watch.
When you feel anger, sorrow or happiness, don't try and drive the feeling away, just watch how it arises and plays out.
Do you feel that you can start to observe your thought patterns and emotions more objectively, and perhaps free yourself from being caught by them so easily?
Report your thoughts to your practice partner and, if possible, on the forum thread.
