A reactive attitude - although not strongly encouraged - is sometimes necessary to avoid harm and protect us from danger. A reactive attitude is mostly required when we find ourselves in a life threatening situation, especially when “thinking” (i.e. to respond) could cause serious harm. For example…

  • car accidents,
  • hijackings,
  • being attacked,
  • catastrophes,
  • natural disasters, …etc.

Under the above circumstances, to react often save lives and may prevent “grave bodily harm”. However, under normal circumstances (i.e. not life threatening situations) and during everyday activities, a reactive attitude is best to be substituted by a proactive inclination.

The natural energy flow of a reactive attitude is to REACT to situations, events and circumstances without thinking about it first.
