When feeling any emotion, the emotion can then be looked at in a different way, and you will feel differently.
We are not forced to be angry, upset, or frustrated.
Just as we are not forced to be happy, excited, or full of good energy all the time.
There is a range to our feelings, Both sides come to everyone.
If you are feeling very intensely, there is a
powerful current of energy that is driving this feeling.
If transformed, it can be used in a way that is not destructive or otherwise negative.
The only way to stop from reacting and letting impulsiveness take over when hit with an intense situation and feeling, is to shift the attention to a different angle. For example, if there is a reason to feel angry at somebody, look at that anger and take a step out of it.
See it from the point of view of not being angry.
It is easy to lose control when feeling intensely, and become swept up in
whatever is happening, to the point where mistakes are made. Bad choices are often made when a person becomes short sighted and only looks at things on a personal level.
There is always a way to take a step back and look at everything.
A different state of mind is all that is needed.
Smoke some weed, listen to some music, watch something funny, eat some good food, and if you have a friend, family, or loved one(s), share your love. The best thing we can do for ourselves, is to be good to other beings.
Not because we want to get some sort of merit, or personal gain.
Do it because we are all here on this planet, in the same struggle to survive. Then, you will get the only kind of merit that actually counts.
When we chip away at our selves, there is a choice to either become apathetic, or to become dispassionate and detached in a mindful way.
A way that can see the attachment or the strong feeling, yet also look at it from a dispassionate and detached state of mind.
Then the intensity has become transformed, instantly. Humanity has created and continually conditions itself
into a structured existence, because of the need to survive.
But this structure has gone from people who
survived off of the land without destroying it and abusing the resources, to where survival is profitable. If a person wants to live in absolute luxury, it has always been at the expense of others. For the most part, because practically all of the people who have the most wealth and power in the world,
are not people who are satisfied with they have.
These kinds of people are always after more and more.
To feel like they are in charge; that they are somehow more important than the rest of the world. Any person can be tempted and driven to chase after wealth, fame, and power.
But the real wealth is to feel healthy, happy, and satisfied. Real power, is found only through grace, harmony, and virtue.
The world needs to wake the fuck up, get rid of currency, and start actually working together, instead of fighting over stupid shit. Religion and resources have been the primary reason behind practically every war in history.
It’s this fear that we are not going to have as much as we need, which
stacks on to the fear that we are not going to have as much as we want.
And there are always going to be people who are irrational. People who are oppressive when it comes to their beliefs, and/or spirituality.
Instead of wanting to have more and more, every new thing as it comes out, and to impose our beliefs and ideas upon others, we can produce what we need in a way that has nothing to do with profit.
We can work to create what is needed, to be happy, safe, and have our basic needs taken care of.
To have basic needs taken care of, and to be happy and safe should not be an exclusive privilege to those who have any kind of currency.
If a person is able, then they can contribute. If they are not able, then
we shouldn’t just let them be homeless and without any of that precious currency that is needed for basic needs. To me, that doesn’t feel righteous. We are supposed to be an advanced civilization.
Of course, there will be people who are outright evil, sadistic, and malicious. No matter how chaotic a system is, there is always a pattern that is congruent. There is always a cause and effect relationship. And yet, no matter how efficient a system is, there has to be unpredictable elements.
Instead of working together, there is a dissonance.
A falsely perceived separation, and the segregation of people and all living beings. People for some reason value life in different degrees and have been doing so for ages.
There has to be something that will cause everyone to get together and actually work in unity towards a better Way.
The majority of people on this planet are not the ones with wealth and power. The majority are the ones who have to
suffer and do all the work, so that the wealthy can live in luxury.
The poor, disabled, the uneducated, and the working class could change the course of history as we know it. It seems like there is no way that this will happen right now unfortunately. At least not without a serious disaster or economic collapse. Unless, there was another world war, or global apocalypse, or you know.. aliens came and did SOMETHING…
OR, we could just get our shit together and change things collectively. Shake up the system. Fight against this tyranny that threatens our lives and exploits our time and energy for a profit.
Instead of waiting for abundance, or some global shift in consciousness, get together, find those who have the skills, and make IT happen dammit!
