Re-reading is so vital for hearing what the author is saying.

I do that with most of the books I’ve read.

…in this pic, do you see the word

‘accept’

D – is for deficiency

B – is for Being

‘cognition’ –

“the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses”

(thanks Google)

* everyone is seen in terms of either fulfilling a need (how can I use them)

or

as a threat to what I have or obstacle to me getting what I want
