Or, ‘ clearing shit between the ears. Sometimes there is a ‘clogging’ between the brain and the heart that will, at best, only allow a trickle of energy to go from the head to the heart. Stuck on the same negative schtick over and over for years is clogging that’s never going to change without serious plumbing and letting go. We all were given a ‘choice button’ that with unused time becomes ‘stuck’ from lack of use. The lubricant to release the ‘plumbing stoppage’ is to use that ‘choice button’ through ‘letting go’. Meditation will open the connection. That decision is in the brain tank that flushes ‘blockages’ down to the heart for conversion to positive feelings.
We think we are who we are not, and not who we really are! People get stuck on others opinions of them as well as their perception or identification of experiences as being them. I have observed people closely almost as a hobby. One of the perceptions I find to be very true is one that people are often what they look like. Slovenly people rarely are any different inside than they are on the outside. Confident appearing people who have a smile on their face rarely are sad, ignorant, unkind, unthoughtful, non spiritual, and so forth.
People become too identified with who others, including family, friends, and their own perceptions due to that, both positive or negative. No one needs to be an invention of themselves that leaves behind the real inner them apart from outside influences. Parents do the best they can, but generation after generation has experienced every limitation, misfortune, and fear imaginable. Few have been ready to raise healthy children, or have made the necessary changes within themselves to pass on.
Learn to love, and drop all that behavior going against love. It’s an uphill climb but the art of loving is the greatest art there is. Become a painter of love. First, begin dropping all that doesn’t come from love. The easy way is the slovenly way that ultimately brings most discord and unhappiness. Most folks love less than a lot of pet dogs do. Time to change that! Call the plumber to unclog annoying habits and mindsets that block the full rush of the hearts flowering. The best plumber is of course you! Clear the trap of the mind being an answer better than the heart. Unless you reach for your real being, love never blossoms.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year. An affirmation that can help in living each day fully:
“Today I will live through the next 24 hours and not try to tackle all of life’s problems at once.
Today I will improve myself, body, mind and spirit.
Today I will refuse to spend time worrying about what might happen if…
Today I will not imagine what I would do if things were different. They are not different. I will do my best with what material I have.
Today I will find the grace to let go of resentments of others and self-condemnation over past mistakes.
Today I will not try to change, or improve, anybody but me’’
