So many of us in the 'spiritual' community are jaded with the belief that to be One with the world is to be happy and ignore the negative things around us....but what if ignoring the negative is actually pulling you away from Self and Oneness? Hear me out...
There is a difference between 'feeling' and 'consuming'. To feel all emotions is healthy, to be consumed by our emotions is not.
You have every right to FEEL angry/fearful for example. It becomes a problem when we are CONSUMED by it to the point where that anger/fear BECOMES apart of us.
We are not our emotions and have little to no contol over them but we do have control over how we react to them.
To deny any part of our emotional spectrum is to deny ourselves in some part, in my opinion. Bad stuff happens...it came from the same source as good stuff - The Creator. See where I'm going with this? To deny Self and The Creator is to deny the world around us in it's entirety.
Sure, we can live in little bubbles of happiness, joy and rainbows and whatever else you want in your bubble but to deny the very things that make us human?...you will have to face it at one point. Denying anger, guilt, fear, rejection, sadness, etc is saying no to your shadows and trust me, your shadows aren't going anywhere. They will follow you around until you deal with them as they are apart of you.
For example, you see animal abuse and decide not to follow a particular facebook page because it enrages you for bringing the subject to your attention. So you effectively ignore these things go on by unfollowing that page. Does it make a difference? No. It keeps you in your 'safe bubble' yes but your bubble will be popped no matter what you do to avoid it because it will appear elsewhere. Why? Because if you aren't aware of how to deal with what you are feeling, how can you make a change in this world? So guess what, the universe will make you aware so you can make a change to the collective either through yourself or outwardly
To be aware, is to experience life in it's many, many forms. From the good to the bad, from the beautiful to the ugly. Sometimes, it's what breaks us that actually makes us.
Find the root of your negative emotions and deal with them in a healthy manner. We ARE human, no matter what you believe yourself to be. You are here, this is your home for now, so live in it WHOLLY.
FEEL, EXPERIENCE, LEARN, MOVE ON.
I believe people should see the world as a whole (the whole yin/yang ball we call life) and experience a range of emotions and the different layers of them emotions to fully truly be whole within ourselves and to be fully connected to the collective consciousness. It isnt THE truth but it is my truth so take what resonates, and leave the rest behind (as ABB would say). ~ALFIE~
