Tethered to Love
March 8, 2021
Are you chained to a love that always seems to be
escaping the heart and mind? One can be tethered to a
closed heart, not to mention a mind. It’s also sometimes
smothered in emotionalism where you can’t see the forest through the trees. In the field of psychology, cognitive dissonance occurs when a person holds contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values, and is typically experienced as psychological stress when they participate in an action that goes against one or more of them. Likewise, the mind and heart keeps at odds with each other for most.
Excellence is a much more powerful influence in the world than discontent. So everything is fine out there for what’s come before. No one said it’s perfect in the real sense. But it is exactly the way it should be …at this moment. So here is the paradox of effective change – if you want to influence change for the better, then the most ineffective way to begin is with contentment with the way things are. The way things are, is the way things are meant to be?
Your journey will be much lighter and easier if you don’t carry your unexamined or negative past with you. In a sense, life is ‘boiler plate’ like meaning, or
unoriginal living inside the box. Unless, your life has a positive,
questioning past, it’s time for you and society to ‘reset’ the past to
a new paradigm. Being tethered to a love that’s either is not working in many ways is in a sense being tethered to ‘stupidity’ especially when there are other positive choices waiting for your approval.
To forgive and forget is to reflect love. Situations pass, they cease to exist, but they can continue to be alive in the mind. Expose and open your heart by being generous, free yourself from sorrows,
forgive and forget, and you will live every moment in peace.
Be careful who you love, and start with examining your ‘self love’ first.
Open up and let go of unresolved issues before hitting the bumpy road of love. Two on a bumpy road can certainly make it bumpier. Always look to improve. Find a way to make yourself uncomfortable, then get comfortable with it and do it again. That may sound uncomfortable, but it works for me and will for you. Be aware and make the best decision of those available.
