What do people do when they are in the vortex?
There is a lot of discussions on Inward Quest about how to get into the vortex (which is great) but not much on what people do when they are in it.
For me, once I am in the vortex in the morning, I usually finish off my daily language study routine, read some old questions and answers here on Inward Quest, then go about doing whatever needs doing. In other words nothing particularly special.
What about you? Do you do anything special? Or do you do the same normal daily things but from a better-feeling place?
Another related question: Do you enjoy watching from the vortex the normal movies, TV etc. that you watch from outside the vortex? What about reading newspaper? I find I cannot enjoy the TV and movies any more and nor do I enjoy reading newspapers (I was already reading very little of it anyway).
What about interactions with other people? I have found that I am very relaxed and generally quite funny when I am in the vortex.... I appear to be quite fun to be with when I am in the vortex.
Once I'm in the vortex, I become super-productive :) I usually start burning through my todo list (a.k.a. my "highest excitement" list, see below) that is full of things to do, and I have so much fun doing them!!! This includes chores... vacuuming the house is so much fun when you're in the vortex with your favorite music blasting in your ears :)
Other random things I do:
I don't recall ever being in the vortex and not wanting to do stuff, so for me, that is a big distinction of being outside vs. in the vortex. When you're in, you want to move, do things that feel good, be happy, look around, look for things to appreciate etc. etc. the only time I ever find myself apathetic is if I'm outside the vortex :)
I wrote thie answer sort-of aimlessly, but hopefully all that aimless text gives you an idea of what I do when inside my vortex ;)
