Impatience

I am getting impatient with the pace of the Greer book. Two or more weeks per chapter, and those chapters tend to be light on ritual and heavy on mental and psychic exercises. Exercises that, for the most part, have not been unfamiliar to me. I like the assigned extra reading, though and the Tree of Life project. But from dipping into other books, and reading websites and e-lists I can see a different world out there, different from the one I've been operating in. I can see it, but I am not there.

What I would like to do is put down the Greer book, and pick up a different text and start again.

What I will do is work through the book at the pace recommended and use the whole experience as a lesson in Patience, Discipline and Self-Mastery.

if your intuition tells you to stop, then why not follow it ?
It's a Mercury Retrograde after all..
Just another idea.

(smiles) you are the second person to tell me that. I have to say that I am really tempted. I shall continue and finish the chapter I am working on, though. Perhaps a little divination is in order?

The thing is, it isn't intuition that is telling me to stop, impatience isn't the same thing. Intuition is telling me to stick with it for the reasons listed in the blogpost. BTW the divinations said to "listen to my intuition" And someone I actually spoke with about it (and whose opinion I trust) suggested that it was likely to be a lesson in discipline.
