During the labor of February, we experimented with using our deeper habits as fuel for self-observation. This required intelligent, rather than forceful, efforts. As our understanding of ourselves deepens, so does our ability to make such intelligent efforts.

Understanding is the resultant of a simultaneous growth of knowledge and being. Prince Siddhartha’s explorations outside his palace walls portray this process, wherein the prince first witnesses new things (being) and is then explained their meaning by his charioteer (knowledge). In this tutorial, we apply this principle to work with negativity.
