But our fleeting feelings, our moods: these often don’t have anything to do with what we feel and know deeply.
It’s important, when you’re feeling something, to take a look at if it’s a passing thought, or something real and deep and true.
For example, when you wake up in the morning, you might feel grumpy and want to be left alone; it’s hard to move in the noise and disruption of the day. But these feelings are related to things like your core personality needing more time to transition, or the fact that you’re too tired and need more rest. They don’t speak to what you really feel, about the opportunity to get up in the morning and live your life.
You might be deeply happy with your life, you might be deeply dissatisfied. But the way you feel as you transition from sleep to waking, may not be an indicator.
As you feel irritation, overwhelm, grumpiness, stress and so forth, take a look at if it’s a true, deep, in your gut feeling: or just something passing, a reaction to the impetus of the outer world. The real feeling should be paid attention to. The other, let go. If you’re not sure which is which, start paying attention, and see what you notice.
Much love, SARA
