“What goes up, must come down”
✨ What is aligned to us & good for our soul feels nourishing in a calm & centred way
🫁 Like a lovely long deep breath in & lovely long breath out.
😵💫 A trap I fell into (perhaps you have too?)…
️⚡️ was trying to polarise reality into feeling very “up” & “exciting” as much as possible…
🆙 This trying to drive life up & elevate oneself or one's emotions can lead to avoidance of life and/or a roller coaster experience….
😶🌫️ As in, deep avoidance where you try to ignore things as they are to maintain a one-sided state & don’t exist in reality (head in the clouds & no feet on the ground),
🎢 and/or an experience of UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN
📊 As with our blood sugar, extreme ongoing high & lows ruins our well-being…
❤️ Nature & our body seeks & thrives in equilibrium.
❤️🩹 Healthy blood sugar levels are the ones that exist in the stable middle most of the time.
✔︎ Equilibrium, homeostasis, neutrality, calm… is the state of thriving.
🎈 So many of us have been trying to create an “UP” existence instead of one of equilibrium… ☯️
😵💫 In this way, we set ourselves up for chaos, roller coaster, big down crashes and/or avoidance of reality.
💔 All of this leads to not truly ever-loving ourselves or life in its natural, neutral state.
We only accept the “UP” half of life & then swing between UP & dissatisfaction, or UP & avoidance.
💔 Then… we relate to ourselves & others like this too, leading to disconnection from reality & from real human intimacy.
💡 You might find that a healthier, stable, more satisfying, grounded goal is to aim for radical acceptance of what is… to find gratitude for the way life is, instead of striving for it to become a fantasy.
✨ This allows you to step off the roller coaster & to enjoy the sweetness in the more “ordinary”…
❤️ Those who have learned to be very content with a lot less are the real winners in life… their contentment is stable & dependent on very little.
💔 When you spend life wishing it was an “UP” extraordinary fantasy… you miss the beauty that was always around you.
❌ We don’t need “more” to be content.
🧠 We need a mind that is wired to find acceptance & appreciation in what is.
