I’ve been attending weekly study groups on inner work, and I’ve been out and about more than the usual — partying, drinking, eating.
A friend recently pointed out that one can’t do both at once. And it’s true. They cancel each other out. No gains to be had from either one.
All the inner work is set aside when I’m out and about, and all the lightness and pleasant randomness of an active social life gets a guilty vibe once I pick up books on authenticity and soul work.
Which way to go?
