I saw Sam Harris in Seattle Wednesday night.
It was an amazing event.
There was a heckler! I may have even found who they were through some Facebook sleuthing. There was good conversation, and most of the Q & A was information seeking and well thought-out.
It should have gone longer! Dah!
I’m learning that I need to remove expectations from plans, short-term and long. I’m concerned it may affect my relationship with Faith, or with some individuals in my life (though it shouldn’t). I am noticing it is generally other people I tend to have a problem with. My perspective wavers between positive and negative and when I’m able to maintain more control over my life I seem to have a better outlook on life. Maybe it’s not my expectations I need to dampen, perhaps its more control I should exert over my plans.
I really wish Sam had felt it was appropriate to talk more about free will. It was a great event nonetheless.
