hard neck

stiff neck following his

intervention am I just

not accepting or



in my native German the word ‘hartnaeackig’ sits somewhere between resilient and stubborn: I am h when I don’t let go off a goal which can be a good thing as it helps to overcome all sorts of obstacles without giving up. It can be detrimental if I don’t ‘let go and let g-o-d’ but impose my will on Life as it wants to develop or resist same.

In the given case, am I resisting being offered some gracious input or refuse to be manipulated?

Well, if you have to ask, you already know the answer at some level… -?

… unless humour can help me to see another angle (in case anybody wants a translation – Snoopy offers slobbering here )

  1. Is there harm in receiving input and then determining whether it’s manipulative?
