Part of the challenging terrain of modern anxiety, stress and the sense of life being overwhelming and intense, is a result of fear-laden clusters of unconscious ‘thought energies’ in the body and mind that cause what modern psychologists term as the price we pay for a complex modern lifestyle. However, this could be more precisely termed, as a separation from the simplicity of being connected to the essence, or real self.
The worst thing we can do is to add more stress, anxiety and confusion to this unfortunate situation, by focusing on the problems or thoughts around whatever is arising due to this quandary. Yet strangely this is what everyone seems to do.
It is a very strange yet common reaction that seems to be habitual, in a culture far removed from meditational practice, and being so distant contributes to the very high level of emotion that’s already occurring.
When we have such a misdirected focus, we are adding fuel to the fire and often accept such situations that form as normal. By doing so, when we are lacking in compassion for oneself and what one is experiencing, this too becomes habitual.
I know you can go through this easily!
Please take a few moments and nurture the space of presence within, that can be called ‘loving kindness,’ by being ‘here’ when undergoing such duress. From a space of loving kindness, presence becomes our gateway to transcendence.
