5 goes to 7 in stress

An inner pattern for people who collect within Enneagram 5 is to set (push?) direct experience away so they can reflect on it quietly.

Like writing blog posts in their heads about what they’re doing. Or not-doing. In quiet, I narrate my life like it’s a documentary…

which is not, as far as I’ve discerned, a preferred meditative practice.

A known strategy for Enneagram 7s is setting out new adventures right on the horizon… in part so one isn’t having to pay attention to what’s happing right now, right in front. Because That Other Thing will be happening! Soon!

5s go toward 7 in stress.

Hence today’s meditation, filled with library plans, house refreshment, lunch venues… all narrated by David Attenborough.

Not a final-essay in sight.
