Insights from Day 8 at CN705

  • Being assertive doesn't mean winning the battle, but having the choice to do what you think is right and best, and not being forced to do what you do not want.
  • Being assertive is having the right to choose to sacrifice. It is based on strength and courage, not cowardliness.
  • When you're angry, you disqualify yourself from assertiveness. There is a big difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness.
  • An effective board cannot function with a lot of secrecy.
  • "No" gives meaning to your "yes".
  • Difficult and irritating people are there sometimes because they crave your respect.
  • We need to develop flexibility in our personality.
We also have some interesting discussions about homosexuality in class today. I will not post those insights here because you will have to understand our discussion in a comprehensive and holistic way in order to avoid misunderstanding, and it will be too much to post here in order to present a comprehensive understanding of the point. I'm lazy - that's why I leave it out. If you're interested, seek me out and talk to me in person. I'll be glad to share with you.


hey man,

didn't realize you are studying spiritual formation.

I was at Rapha foundation's course. It is very intriguing and insightful how Dr. Kok combines Psychology and spiritual formation. Her books are sold everywhere but the real deep part is the experiencing God's presence and the small group discussion.

God bless


if you're interested, i recommend all books by my professor Dr. Archibald Hart. He has a very good integration of psychology (particularly the neurophysiological side of it) and pastoral theology.

  • 正如林一峰話齋,閱讀,也是一種 state of mind。
  • 所以不限文字,還有聲音影像一切雜崩能東西,都在涉獵反思消化乾坤大挪移之列。
  • 看重的只有一個字:Insight
