groundhog day.

realising that you can react to similar situations with flexibility is one key to spiritual growth.

as the protagonist in the movie discovers, each time he repeats the "day" he has the opportunity to do something different and get different outcomes as a result.

the way we do this is to begin by becoming aware of ourselves as if we are an objective witness to our own actions.

this witnessing allows us to exert flexibility over our own reaction to things by being less emotionally involved.

this detachment gives us time and space to think and act differently in situations where we could have found anxiety in the past.

watch the movie.
