Ask Yourself...

What am I running from and what am I rushing toward and why?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

I am running from poverty, because it only deepens my powerlessness and it feels unbearable.  
I am rushing towards authenticity. I have this haunting urge to uncover myself 🤷‍♀️

Fear pain and suffering inside and from other humans in the world,I run to an delusional false identity false image of myself in my head to help me cope and feel more courageous to deal with it my creating an image of myself that’s far larger in my head that would stand taller than all other people to keep myself feel more emotionally and mentally safe, to deal with my low self esteem especially around others, to attempt to proof my own significance value and inherent worth to myself before other people can smash it down, and lots and lots of fantasy because I feel like I wouldn’t be able to cope with the way things are

I am running from my fears of the corruption and increasing conflict in the world, and I am rushing towards gaining a sense of direction towards my purpose and financial abundance.

I am running away from the present moment and rushing towards the next moment because I am afraid of feeling. I am running away from people because they hurt me and rushing towards people because I need them...

I am running from intimacy, rushing towards success. Based on my experiences, love was never stable. The one thing that was stable in my life was music and my love towards music. I guess ultimately what I want is stability. I feel like a intimate relationship would somehow break my stability with music. And that is the last thing I want to lose. I am so f**king afraid.

Running away from making a decision regarding commitment in anything at all,  Rushing for taking cover towards a feeling of comfort & safety. Recently Practicing grounding exercises in Wendy de Rosa's audiobook have helped me feel much more safe, reduced anxiety and helped focus on everyday tasks. Also Teal's video on indecisiveness- the exercise mentioned in the 1st half is what I will do today

I am running away from the catastrophe thinking of the inevitable death of those around me. My close friends, my mother, etc. I am running toward closing my own gap between unfulfilled desires that would leave my own death a tragedy.  I am doing this because I am fighting for my life. A life that is worth living. Worth living even with the inevitable death of those around me.

I’ll just say that either one of those dynamics would be advances in positive directions from the stagnation & molasses momentum that largely characterizes my behavior as of late.

I can see and I know how aligned with this question. I would say Im rushing happiness, Im not moving respectfully in my own pace. Trying to have everything settled perfectly. And I actually want to overstep how I feel. Theres a song from: Tina Turner‐ dont rush the good things.

Hi Teal Team

I'm running towards embracing a feminine expression of myself physically, I'm running from the rigidity and unworkability in my mind as the current armoured self that has my vulnerablities held inside.☯️ While learning to embrace both sides, masculine and feminine.

What am I running away from and what I am rushing toward?

I am rushing toward more of these questions, lol.  I am running away from a specific element of my past.  Specifically sharing a certain controversial part of my past. I am running from seeing the benefit of that.  It feels good at first. Then this question kindof catches oneself in it.  
I am rushing toward understanding a certain phase in my life.  One where I was healing.
