From the blog www.blissanddrumming, Clementine reads this piece. *** So now, here I sit having to confront this new form in video recording. Self-compassion has been part of my practice, and it is paying off in that at times I am able to just observe this person here on tape as someone to whom I give love as I work. I know her struggles and the years and years of social pressure to reach some ideal of perfection. I know the trauma of early events and the deep ridges of personality that developed. I know the years of abuse she heaped on herself, in thought and action. She listened to that inner voice of criticism for so long she believed it to be truth. So I feel compassion for her, for having to listen to that megaphone in her ear for almost as long as I can remember. I edit the images and for every negative idea that rises, I allow it to appear and then dissipate in the vast sky of awareness that is real truth. I hear the judgments and I fall into sky. What can I do in this moment but love? No amount of judgment will change the information on the screen.
