It is very common, more often than not, to walk around going "oh, yes, I love this/that/them, etc.". It becomes such routine, a habit, that the true feeling, the deep down feeling, the one that affects our entire body, rarely is ever accessed.
Then that "huge" event happens. Something pivotal. Something so "earth-shaking" that it causes removes our ability to "control". We have little or no control during those times.
When it is a "positive" experience, we enjoy it. We relish and bask in it. We sing & dance & flitter around. But when it is a "negative" experience, we do not like it at all. We clench our bodies, fight it. It is uncomfortable, and we don't like that in this physical world. This is what we, as a human race, try to avoid. But, this is what actually opens us up to the phenomenal experience of feeling. It is there that we have compassion. It can cause us to unintentionally cause us to be kinder to others. It is there that we find the core of what is important. It is there that we are able to access our soul.
I now appreciate even the "roughest" experiences. I understand them. I "see" them for the purpose intended. One, to force us to let go of something that it is time to let go of and two, to remind me us of our core heart, the one tucked way deep down inside that always needs just a bit of protection. Even when it is open and loving others, there may still be a small part that needs to feel a little discomfort to remind us of feeling the duality that is necessary in everything to keep us human. But, as we transcend, the human body/intellect/ego/reasoning mind, gets less and less prevalent. It relinquishes more & more control.
As we start to exist in higher consciousness, we become much more "aware" and totally in a "knowing" that the physical mind can't comprehend. We understand that those are "physical emotions" that serve a purpose in supporting this physical body and keeping our spirit alive. The "issue" or feeling loses validity, becomes an ant from a view where everything is again bliss. Where we love & understand and release those "feelings" as just that. For when we are in "that place", everything is perfect and peaceful.
Another huge realization, is that anytime "I" feel pain, that is the "I" pain. I am operating on an individual level of separation. Once I re-focus my thoughts, I an actually very easily re-merge to the "we". And in we, there is no me. If there is no me, then this "pain" is just something to use as a tool to keep me reminded of what is important. It is not that pain. That pain is a perception. It is a thought, and a thought is a choice. When I can "tap" back into that oneness of we, everything is exactly as it is meant to be at that moment. That is universal love. That is universal consciousness for me at this moment. To be so connected, that I can "see" so much more than any "physical emotion" can experience or know. I again have found my bliss. :)
