Emotional Roller Coaster
June 15, 2010
Ahhhhh! The beauty of mood swings!! Love the ‘highs’! Personally though, I prefer the sweet feel of few mood swings, or one’s that convert rapidly to a consistent blissful state. It’s always a choice! Falling in love with an ‘emotional roller coaster (ERC) type’ is bound to fall off the track up the mountain of love (hence, ‘falling in love’). However, it’s more frequent that ‘ERC’ types bond with others of the same type to do their journey into living chaos with the only light at the end of the tunnel being the experience of endless ‘train wrecks’.
‘Train wrecks’ happen when there’s a combination of a tough start on ‘laying the foundational tracks’ as a child for a smooth, evolving life/love ride through life, and a penchant for going up a path relentlessly that is bound for endless repetition of the ‘same ole, same ole’, different day, different circumstances, but same ‘roller coaster rut’. History tends to repeat itself not only on a world level, but on a very personal level!
Sadly once alone, for whatever time, this type is likely to delude themselves into thinking that they have evolved above the past ‘frays’ of emotional traumas. It’s like the spiritual seeker who leaves his Master after being put through the ‘awareness wringer’ to dry out their illusions. Seeker goes away, thinks they’re enlightened when not involved with the Master, and out in the ‘market place’. Later, they return thinking the Master will be impressed that they have found some ‘nirvana’ within, only to find the Master mirror to be more clear and reflective of ones same old illusions!
As long as one is drugged on the ego, not to mention the drugs that are crutches to avoid looking into the clear mirror of the inner, the illusions of inner grandeur will continue to be ‘enabled’. There is no end to the masquerade and the beginning of it matters not when the choice is ‘now’ to stop, get on track, and begin moving with the heart. The mind, on overload with illusions, is a cancer to the heart. See, feel, and be sensitive to the voice of the heart! Alway acknowledge to another when you are at fault for ‘riding the roller coaster of emotional dissonance’! An ‘emotional roller coaster’ that verbalizes responsibility for their negative moods, is a blessing!
