We all find ourselves complaining about the way things are and not living life. Whether it is the traffic, weather or way people drive in Sri Lanka. Our mind takes us to memories or experiences that no longer serve us. How do we solve this problem?
In every moment there is the announce but also the beauty. It all depends on your focus or fixation. Our subconscious mind tends to fixate on situations. People being late, loud noises, etc. But if we move our attention away from this fixation or resistance to what exists and focus on the wonderful parts of the moment, the air moving against your skin, your breath, we
can see the perfection in any moment.
When your thoughts register annoyance, frustration even for split second, even if you do not show it, your energy becomes 70% introverted into the subconscious and 30% projected. Your subconscious is programmed to protect, therefore it will become fixated on this annoyance, frustration, fear instead of seeing the whole picture.
The registration of an emotional or mental charge then gets lodged in the subconscious. If you do not resolve it within a particular period of time this thought/emotion becomes a fixation. Fixation in the subconscious is outside the range of our intellect. When this load builds up it will start to control your reactive mind. Not only do your own thought patterns stack up in your subconscious but you have been gifted through epigenetics, i.e. your ancestors unfinished issues. These get deposited into your subconscious at birth, to enable you to clear 7 generations of subconscious fixations. What can I do?
At the moment of fixation, you need to be vigilant and present, recognise what your brain is doing, breath deep, say a prayer, chant a mantra mentally or aloud, anything to break the fixation/resistance which will hold you in your emotional patterns.
You are given this opportunity to live so you can learn to receive life as it comes to you. Complaining is like doing nothing it will only waste your valuable energy.
The beauty is when you stop complaining and start accepting the process of life, recovery begins. You are transformed in a single life time.
Channel all your emotional charge into understanding how your emotions work.
When you feel OVERWHELMED it leads to feeling LOST.
When you are LOST you start to feel disconnected and DEPRESSED.
When you connect to your emotions again DEPRESSION becomes hot depression and you start feeling all of your supressed ANGER.
ANGER channelled makes you feel DETERMINED.
DETERMINATION makes you feel CERTAIN and now you flip between CERTAINTY and DOUBT.
When you stop flipping and you are FULLY CERTAIN, you will feel BORED. If you can tolerate the boredom you emerge into the middle path or as the Buddha said balance.
BOREDOM (like being in meditation) is the doorway to your enlightenment, no extremes no acceleration, balance.
BALANCE brings devotion, inspiration, enthusiasm.
All because you became overwhelmed.
Accept was is and you can get to what is to be. That does not mean staying fixated on one emotion, it means feeling it and letting it move to the next.
