Reaction is also movement, also things we do to go forward or protect ourselves, but it is rooted in the thoughts, desires, and physical actions of others. Reaction may be self serving and necessary for survival in mind, body, and spirit. It is primal, ancestral, and natural to the human species. So, rather than see it as wrong or primitive in a bad way, see reaction in our lives as a birthright. We could not have continued as a species without reaction.
We may plan out our reaction too, like when someone is bullying another. One may react immediately and fight, or one may take calm and correct reactions that will make the bullying stop once and for all.
Knowing the differences between action and reaction may assist us in future goal setting, in identifying who derails us and what is their personal motivation for doing so, and we may also learn how to let go of reactions and actions that do not serve our higher purpose. It is worth the work, my friends. You have entrusted me by reading and writing to me, allowing me to answer your many questions on food and nutrition for healing, and how to build a tribe of support when making lifestyle changes for the better. This is no different. Thank you once again.
