At times we are all plagued by issues in life. Some are deep-rooted. Some, are not. This is fortunate because we are easily able to relieve ourselves of the lesser issues and focus on those that obstruct us. Issues are not insurmountable. They just take some patience and understanding. We develop issues for a reason. Usually, that reason has something to do with a past hurt left unresolved. Hurts should never be left unresolved.
Issues are best dealt with whenever you become aware of them. Left unattended, they fester. If it is not possible to address the cause of your issue(s) personally, it is best to be sure that you deal with its/their impact on your internals. You can get over your issue(s) when you spend time working with its/their actuality. When you resolve your issues with yourself, the object of your issue(s) becomes unimportant in your days. That is a good place to be.
If you can give yourself enough space, it is possible to laugh at yourself and your issue(s) sometimes. Of course, there are times when nothing is funny. That is how it is. The object is to get through the things that cause you discomfort, not to suppress or repress them. If going through discomfort changes the way you perceive yourself and the world, then you can know that your issues – while they lasted – were worth themselves.
You have physical senses of which you are (mostly) aware. Apart from those that you have purposely suppressed, repressed. In your allegiance to society’s flawed say-so, you are subjugating yourself by denying the truth of your reality. If you concentrate, your senses explain your true reality to you. Do not be fooled, listen and learn. You let your senses get bent by conditioning, you allow your senses to be told what to feel and what to do. This is not productive. You need to change your circumstances so that society listens to what your senses have to say, not the other way around.
Celebrate your senses. Know that you have more than five. You have a sense of being, for instance. A sense of balance, of understanding. Use every sense made available to you, do not be afraid to succumb to their pull, their sway. Your sense of mind is another valuable gift given to you by Nature. Do not shun the given. Should you not realise that your suppression – repression – of your senses is a fatal flaw in your being, you will find yourself on the outside of the inside. You do not want to be on the outside. Bring yourself in, into yourself, embrace your understanding. You have every capacity to understand and mould your reality, and then you reserve the right to break that mould. Your mould, your right to change its shape.
Consider that you see only what society wants you to see. Change that. Consider that you smell – on a subliminal level – the subtle musk of other human beings, the ‘attraction scent’ given off by women, men, despite the inappropriateness of this reality in our über politically correct society. These scents are enough to mess with your head if you are not aware that you are affected each day by the raw Nature of others. The subtleties happen to you all day, every day, should you be in contact with other humans. If you should spend a lot of time with others, your senses will quite likely be more developed than you perhaps give them credit for. This is an advantage. Know that being alone does not preclude you from sensing to perfection your actuality, it simply means that you must become more attuned to your wants, your needs, your knowing. Senses are knowing; all-knowing. Trust them.
