All life forms are energetic beings.
Emotions and emotional responses are the stirring of our energy.
The Dalai Lama says, “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”
That is the ultimate goal, and in our pursuit for personal happiness,
we are motivated to continue at all costs to find that place of bliss.
It is human nature to avoid that which is painful. We learn how to
navigate our lives with as little pain and confrontation as possible.
Eating toxic foods, drinking alcohol, and taking drugs all act as suppressants
for our energy in motion. They all act as “band-aids” for our pain. Guilt
and fear hold us back from making appropriate changes to a happier life.
To truly find happiness, we must take a more holistic approach.
Initiate the “healing response” and the body will mend itself.
This is true for emotional healing, as well.
If you truly want to transform an unwanted, negative emotion, you can
begin by becoming aware of the sensation that emotion brings to the body.
Place your attention on it, let it inform you. Be curious, bare witness as it
moves you in different directions. No need to fix it, judge it, or figure it out.
Just be aware of all the information it brings. It will increase at times and
decrease as well. Images may appear and memories may arise. But know
that these are all yours, unique to you, because you are energy in motion.
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a
desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
~ E. B. White
Surrender to your healing.
Surrender to your happiness.
In health & love,
