Today I'd like to talk about healing stressful habits.
How are you doing?
I pray in the most emphatic way that you are okay.
Being human, by conditioning, is very stressful. It is that way because, without the hurt, we could not heal. Without the struggle, we could not discover success. Being human is our spiritual schooling of expansion.
Think about it for one sec, please. We cannot know what we really want unless we experience what we don't want. We cannot understand what is desired until we experience the undesired.
The tricky part is what we all want; what anyone wants is to be happy. The opposite of happiness is stress. Stress is fear, and fear causes all negative emotions.
My theory is there are three stages of life; innocence, adolescence, and enlightenment.
Innocence is how we come into this world, loving to learn, listen, love, and understand. We are innocent spiritual beings, pure unconditional love, entering the human world.
We become adolescents when we are taught to compare, compete, complain, and criticize. Our caregivers, parents, and teachers teach us these habits. Life teaches us to try and be the best or better than others, and when we aren't, we are losers. Life teaches us that happiness is outside us through what we have and how others treat us.
Many adults are still adolescents, comparing, competing, complaining, criticizing, dramatizing, and gossiping. Where do you think teenagers learn it? I understand many people will disagree with what I have just stated because they do not want to hear it. I also understand that many people will refuse to see the truth in it.
Teenagers are the most extraordinary individuals who rebel because they become confused between innocence and adolescence. Imagine being born with unconditional love and then being taught to hate the self and others by focusing on what is wrong. It's confusing!
The stage of adolescence is also looking for happiness outside of the self rather than searching for it within. It is when people leave their joy in the hands of their own distorted beliefs and moods, unknowingly blaming others for dissatisfactions.
Enlightenment is when we discover our spiritual nature of the unconditional love that we are. It's when one realizes happiness comes from the freedom of choosing one's focus, which establishes beliefs, governs feelings, and directs actions.
Enlightenment is when one reconnects with God and begins creating habits that allow cooperation with God.
Enlightenment is when we discover our power, value, and worth, which points to pure bliss in this life. This bliss is literally heaven on earth from the energized positive power of unconditional love.
Enlightenment is the healing of the stressful habits of being human. Enlightenment is releasing the negative emotions one has learned and practiced into near permanence and reemerging into the unconditional love that a person is.
When we are pure innocence, we have no negative emotions.
When we are adolescent, we learn and practice negative emotions.
When we are enlightened, we release negative emotions and heal them because that is the hurt in this life.
Everyone will experience negative emotions and hurt in this life. That statement alone indicates the learning of the lessons of this human experience. No healthy "normal" person is exempt from stress in this human experience.
Negative emotions are stressful habits that must be healed to return to the unconditional love that an individual is.
There are only two emotions, love, and fear. All emotions fall under one or the other.
Love feels like eagerness, elation, excitement, exhilaration, contentment, happiness, joy, and unconditional love because it is.
Fear is anger, anxiety, depression, despair, frustration, irritability, misery, and moodiness, and it feels horrible.
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." ~1 John 4:18, New Testament, Holy Bible, KJV
As we overcome our fear, aka stress habits, we release the negative emotions that never belonged to us and become, or reemerge rather, into perfect love. Perfect in love is unconditional love, and that is what we are.
Getting back to that perfect, unconditional love that we are is the healing of stressful human habits.
That's all I got...
Sorry, I fibbed about keeping my posts short, sweet, and straight to the meat.
I'm trying, I promise!
Also... I love you, my dear sibling of this world.
God bless you...
