Life Is A Sensation, Not An Emotion - Grasshopper
Our lives are filled with emotion and they signify we are alive, but they are not the force that animates us, only the reaction to the circumstances we encounter.
Life is unemotional. It's like lightning; it can light up the sky or cut down a tree without an emotional reaction, but you can still feel life. It's a sensation devoid of emotion.
Life is the current that causes us to make waves - vibrations - that intersect with the waves of others and create our seeable world. It's the invisible, animating force behind all of our accomplishments and failures, yet it doesn't exalt or cry. It's the force of creation.
Life can make you passionate or dispassionate depending on how you use it. People who become passionate about something can feel the life force; those that are passionless haven't taken the time to feel the sensation of life because they're too busy attempting to figure out the circumstances.
When you feel the sensation known as life, you gain a quiet confidence that all is taken care of and you begin to send out vibrations of harmony. Like finds like. If you don't believe that, how do you explain how two accountants find each other at a crowded Star Trek Convention?
Having emotional reactions will be with us all of our days and they serve a noble purpose - to keep us human. They, however, must never be confused with the mother of all creation - Life.
You can tap into your emotions and you can tap into life. Emotions never venture out of the shallow end; life will always take you deeper.
Life, like the tides, has a rhythm. Make the effort to feel the rhythm of life that sits beneath the surface and bathe your emotions in it. The result is less storms and calmer seas.
"Recognize" and "Harmonize" rhyme. You can find your personal poetry by harmonizing with life by first recognizing it is there.
The sensation of life goes by many names but they all point to the same place - the creative cauldron that gives power to our emotional desires.
We already have an emotional life story. The objective now is to "Get a Life!"
All the best,
