On all the exercises I try to help you to focus on one thing: modulate your mental focus.
If your mental focus is back in you, you have to suffer your experiences in life. That is why we as human beings, that is why some philosophers say: it is tragic. People cannot learn from other people’s sufferings. We, as stupid human beings have to suffer to learn. That’s why history is always repeating itself.
But forget about other people’s stories. To me, history is HIS STORY. If you are going to practice martial art, meditation, or spiritual practice. It has nothing to do with other people’s stories. It is you to be focalized and pay attention to your story.
This is what I mean by mind your own footsteps.
