If I could avoid these interventions, I definitely would. Without that quarterly injection, I feel I’m a calmer, kinder person. I also feel in control of my spiritual development.
On the other hand, when I neglect it, my family suffers from my acute low mood and general lethargy. And, of course, I suffer from the various discomforts which beset me.
This intervention does have its positives: I have more energy, more strength and more confidence. Yes, but there’s also my increasing temper, and my runaway ego. I find this hard to manage.
I definitely feel like I made more progress managing my inner self during the two years I neglected treatment. Now I feel like I’ve stumbled backwards again.
These interventions are needed to address one set of woes, but bring with them another set altogether. It’s a real conundrum.
