Chicken or the Egg – What’s in your Gizzard?
We all want more joy in life … so how do we actually create it?
In short, we are constantly creating our own set of life-experiences in direct response to our predominate heart-felt emotions. Great spiritual teachers …. and the science of quantum physics …. both speak the emphatic truths that we each produce a colorful out flowing display of Rainbow Emotions!
So what’s the color of your Rainbow ….
Color is light …. light is energy ….. therefore color is Energy too. A rainbow is an awesome display of color in the sky that can be felt by everyone. I can recall times (and you most likely can too) when I have seen a rainbow that was so beautiful that it almost took my breath away. The strong emotional up-welling that I was feeling was in harmony with the colorful display in the sky …. It captured my focus …. and it felt glorious!
In contrast, however, we can all recall moments of strong negative emotion. Some times these strong negative emotions are short-lived …. sometimes the negative emotions are persistent generating a mood that lasts for days or even longer. I am sure that you can relate …. so how do we break the negative “funk” that we are in?
Upgrade your Focus …. Have Faith
Some times we have a tendency to mask our feeling and pretend to be happy. Through years of social conditioning, strong convictions and unhealthy work ethics …. I learned that feelings were not important. I was taught that conformity to certain condition, that “I would then be a good person.” I did what I was told …. I sucked-it-up …. and got to work. I learned to ignore my feelings.
I had no idea then how much harm that I was doing to myself (I was taught that to be a good person, that in fact …. I must die to self.) I was taught not to trust my feelings.
I now have a much broader perspective on life. I now understand the importance of proper focus …. and it’s the basis of true faith.
True Faith, is the universal knowing …. that I can seek and find …. a feeling of well-being …. even thouch I can’t see it at the moment.
By focusing on a feel-good emotion …. the feel-good life-experiences … will soon follow.
To the degree that I maintain positive focus ….. Life then flows with the more positive out flowing of love, joy and well-being.
The more I can deliberately choose to focus on well-being …. the more I experience the satisfying outflow of happy expectations.
So I am learning the importance of positive heart-felt focus on good happy thought …. let go of unhealthy thought and habits. Let’s all remove any masks that have a negative intention …. so we can experience the outward flow of inner-sincerity and make even better contributings to our self …. and to others as well.
Every emotion is like an electromagnetic boomerang …. every faithful expectation will soon follow!
With sincerity and harmony,
