Words of encouragement for any feeling down.
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?
Hey. This was just what I needed. Beautifully put my friend.
@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!
@splashartist, Thank you for sharing beautiful truth!
@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.
