Words of encouragement for any feeling down.

2 years, 3 months ago

Hey there, yes I am talking to you. You may think I am just writing to anyone who views it, but this is directed for you. In these words I hope you may find a little much needed peace. Don’t we all?
So, you’ve been feeling down lately? I won’t ask you why or how you have reached this point but I would like to point a few obvious things to you. Maybe you can take something away from it.
Throughout your life you have been through many things. Some may have effected you still even up until this point, others maybe have been completely forgotten. That aside, If you notice the pattern of events in your life though there will probably be evidence of a recurring theme. This theme is the pendulum effect of positive and negative emotions/periods. Much like how energy vibrates with valleys and hills your life follows this same pattern. This simple understanding is quite profound in its nature, but also very simple. We go up and then we come down. This the natural flow of energy (us). Liberation and freedom can arise knowing that your sadness, anger, fear, fatigue, pain, suffering will not last forever.
If these much worried about things in life always settle much like shaken up water becomes clear then why put yourself through added suffering? Sit back and watch the pain. Watch it as it dulls and eventually disappears, like it always does. Like a pebble hitting a calm pond, watch the ripples until the water becomes still again. Detatch yourself from this pain, become the observer.
We are and always have been observers, not actually in our body but observing it. Not actually in our mind, but observing it. We watch the finite movement pass us by, day after day always changing. Re-connect with the stillness and accept what you are going through, don’t fight it. Fighting will just cause more suffering. This period of sorrow or pain will not last for you.
So open your arms and welcome your enemy, for true love can permeate even the devils heart. Love and be as you are in this moment, aware. Watch the clouds drift by, watch your pain drift by. You are okay, and you always have been. It’s time to come home.
Much love <3.

@splashartist, Than you for this, it is amazing and very powerful. I agree that we have ups and downs like the currents within everything in this universe. But I worry that detaching and observing is not always healthy. We are animals, and perhaps we need to be more, not less in touch with our bodies and hormones and balances.

@thedao, There in lies the paradox. To detatch we must fully attatch ourselves to the experience. You are right in that detachment of life is unhealthy, but most people are detatched in this unheathyway completely engulfed in the mind. The detatchment I speak of is the type that cannot be put into words properly. Only felt.

@splashartist I know and recognize this, yet I forget it all the time when i feel like blah, i tend to forget its just passing by…but sometimes it feels like a situation i keep holding on to, as if i somewhere inside me choose to feel miserable, but i dont want to, yet i sustain the feeling somewhere:S..

There are good days and there are bad days. But they happen in no discernible rhythm. The pendulum analogy is slightly simplifying for it comes to mean that there is a regular oscillating pattern and each end lasts just as long. Neatly written. And u know wat, the ‘sit back and watch’ thing that u speak of, in medical circles its called ‘depersonalisation’. Wel isnt it called the same in common parlance?!…anyway, and this depersonalisation is a build-in mechanism that sets in once a person hits a low, ie, goes depressed. So wel ur thesis here has a biological substantiation. Cherios man!

@heartbeat, This is the ego, it enjoys feeling sad or whatever because it justifies a negative experience you have had. Watch the mind and be aware and the less control it will have over you. Being aware takes practice and you will not come to accept such things overnight. This is a lifestyle that you can so choose to take on. Cheers!

@myselfbaba22, Of course the pendulum displays a simplified version but I’m glad you understood what it meant. As far as your depersonalization theory on detachment goes, I am not talking about sitting back and watching in this manner. You watch even when your happy, this is simply being aware and here in the moment to the best of your capabilities. If you feel depersonalization then this too is watched.
