Hearing The Self

Sunday, September 06, 2020

Do you feel burdened by gloomy thoughts and feelings more often as not?. Does your attention stray repeatedly toward negative subjects, your worries and anxieties regarding the future. You can in fact relieve any sadness and melancholy you feel by stepping away from worldly pressures and social obligations and getting in touch with self. It is only when you are alone that you can understand what has caused or contributed to your low spirits. Try looking within to see what your soul is attempting to tell you. Feelings have a complex array of origins, but the stillness of solitude offers solace. 

Spending time in peaceful solitude when you are feeling low affords you an opportunity to examine your emotions without having to contend with other distractions. Often, it is difficult to decipher how we truly feel because the voice of our inner selves must compete with external stimuli to be heard. When you are alone, your inner voice becomes easiest to hear and you can better concentrate wholeheartedly on understanding the root cause of your thoughts and feelings. Anything discovered will help regain emotional equilibrium. Spending time apart from the world and other people today will give you a chance to hear yourself.

    I am enjoying my daily meditation time--I tell myself I'll take 10 minutes for it so I don't "feel" like I'm cheating something else. And, I always feel better afterwards. I'm no longer beginning to feel those 10 minutes are "taken" from something else. The app is Headspace.

    It’s a challenge for many of us. Hope you find a healthy way to deal with these feelings.

    This is exactly why I love my walking meditation – it is that time alone w/ME to get myself centered and ready to meet the challenges of the day!
