Teeter Totter Life
December 27, 2016
Feeling ‘safe’ in life is to be home with the comfort of the moment. From a feeling of ‘safety’ in a war zone to safety from negative feelings, thoughts, as well as in all situations and experiences as much as possible it’s a place everyone yearns to be in. Time to find the comfort in the real truth rather than the ‘fake truths’ that lead our lives along a spinning journey of ups and downs. ‘See saws’ or teeter totters can be fun (and dangerous), but one’s personal life as that, affects everyone else at the other end, and very often unpleasantly!
I have lived in mutual love where my female partner was always pleasant no matter what time of the day, week or month. Of course, they had an abundance of self love that kept them centered and sensitive to themselves and all others. Teeter tottering is like a yo yo or up and down with little consistency. Moods are part of life, but moods that happen on a regular basis are a sign of unresolved issues begging for attention that isn’t being given. Life has enough challenges with nature, and sometimes unexpected like with an earthquake, floods, storms, fires, even mosquitos!
Ultimately, a consistent demeanor begins with an open heart that softens attitudes and actions. An open compassionate heart needs nursing to grow, and more nursing to heal damage, especially from negative circumstances that childhood endured. More important than ‘success’ in the outer world is the success of fixing the inner you to have no apprehensions to love with limits or ‘unlimited love’. Peace within creates as much peace as is possible in all walks of life. The term ‘bi-polar’ has been coined by the psychological people and happily accepted by the pharmaceutical people mainly as a device to make money.
The best doctor many times is you being open to using your mindful awareness and techniques to let go of attachment to what blocks the love flow and fills up the ‘love tank’ called the heart, letting it expand more and more. Live each moment fully being aware mindfully of seeing and being awake to all highest choices for each situation. Be aware of dropping judging, particularly initiating it. Patience is a virtue that should be cultivated coupled with learning greater tolerance. Accept ‘not knowing’ for it is an important aspect of desirable ‘humbleness’. No one has a perfect life, but between ‘riddled with problems and near perfect is a path to move up the scale of peaceful, blissful, enjoyable, and exciting, with love always flowing!
