Some believe that I am a ball of complete positives, and that negativity never touches me. That I live with my head in the clouds and do not know of the sorrow that surrounds this world. This is an untrue statement. Yes, it is true, I CHOOSE to be happy and surround myself with positive influences and experiences, but earth-grounded physical life, comes with situations that bring sorrow and pain and chaos, for all people - even enlightened ones. How we choose to experience the situation(s) is key.
The best thing to do is to acknowledge that there is dis-comfort occurring. FEEL the emotions that are flowing through you. Experience them and allow yourself to flow with the emotions. Understand that even during the most devastating experiences, that that time will pass. That in time, you will smile again, even laugh again… and most importantly you will breathe effortlessly once more.
The only way to reach those times of laughter and joy, is to go through the experience as if you are water flowing down a river. But be certain to not stop in the middle of the river’s flow and therefore drown in the water. This is where many falter, they become stuck and locked in place, they forget to breathe, they forget to continue onward, they allow the weight to push them down and under, they become overwhelmed with FEAR, and it is here that they drown and become locked into the grips of depression.
Until you can realise that even depression is a state of choice, you will be stuck in the perpetual cycle of the negative energies of the situation(s).
Become un-stuck. Reach out to those who are in the Light, in Awareness for support and become prepared to begin to flow along this journey once more. Surround yourself, immerse yourself, in the writings, the teachings, the lessons of those who are enlightened, whose messages are positive and uplifting. Do not permit the EGO of cynicism to spread falsities in your mind and brain, further perpetuating that cycle of depression and negativity. Simply allow the information to flow through you. If at first, you must just let it flow, then do so. Let the Light bathe you. As you begin to become stronger, revisit these lessons of positive messages, and let them digest in you. Begin to embrace them; let yourself become a part of the message(s).
Of course, the best way to prevent the decline into negativity and depression is to choose to not let it affect you in the first place. But we are on this human experience with these human emotions. So, if these things affect you, acknowledge them, surround the situation/individual in loving energy, and choose to move forward into the next present moment.
Remember, every single experience we encounter during this earth-journey is a lesson in learning while upon this incarnation. And each experience will help you to graduate into greater learning, or hold you back to repeat the lesson(s).
Above all, remember to breathe often, during times of stress, we can forget. Meditate and free your mind from the chaos that is externally surrounding you.
