Shaolin Wisdom: How self-observation can prevent you from making mistakes?
Life wisdom from Shaolin. Watch an excerpt from my talk with Shi Heng Yi and Shi Heng Zong from the Shaolin Temple Europe located in Otterberg (Kaiserslautern) / Germany.
How useful is the self-observation as a toll for personal growth?
Definitely the ability to sometimes step aside and watch yourself before you say something, before you act in a way, can prevent you from making mistakes. The ability to step away from the emotion, to step aside and observe yourself, so you can go into a position of observing yourself. The observer can still take a decision if you like the movie or not. But if you're going to act inside the movie, you cannot decide anymore, cause then somebody's already telling: Now it's time to be angry!
