I believe that every person has the right to a peaceful and happy life and be set free

Being human

Finally, we are able to be human. For so long we have been feeling things, deeming those feelings as negative and thinking that there is a problem because we don’t want to feel them and we can’t get rid of that feeling.

Albert Einstein said

We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”.

When we know how we experience life, that thought in the moment is the only thing that can make me feel anything, there is no problem.

So we can be honest about how we are feeling, without feeling guilt, shame or like we should be covering it up. We can sit in a room full of people and ask who has ever felt like this…

Depressed?

Lower than depressed, flat, when you can’t even feel anything anymore?

Suicidal?

and everyone will put their hands up. We are all human beings and we all think and feel different things at different times, but they are the same feelings. We then divide those feelings into good and bad, positive or negative. As soon as we make this split we create something to do. We need to get away from the bad feelings and into the good feelings. This adds more thinking.

But who made that divide? Why is it there? And is it possible for it not to be there?

 

This diagram represents the new paradigm, where we, through insight, no longer split feelings into positive and negative.

When we have a feeling that we would have previously described as negative, it is OK. It passes as it is not being judged. There is less and less suffering.

 

 

 

 

 

When we insight-fully know how our human experience is being created: by thought and feeling coming together in this moment, a lot of thinking we used to have falls away naturally. We no longer spend time ruminating on past events or trying to get away from the feeling, it doesn’t make sense for us to do so.

In this way we become more human, we can feel all the feelings and it is absolutely OK, there is no problem.

When we know that all our feelings, are ever telling us, is what we are thinking in this moment, suddenly it doesn’t make sense anymore to try and effort ourselves away from any feeling. Feelings change on their own because thought is constantly changing. It is not possible for me to tell you what I am going to think in the next moment any more than I can grasp the last thought, it moves so fast I cannot see how fast it moves. In one moment I might think of something that happened several years ago, there is no reason for this, it happens. As soon as I think that there is a reason for this, I am misunderstanding how my human experience is being created.

So, Yes, it is possible for the divide not to be there. We can feel and the feeling isn’t negative to us anymore, it is just a feeling. Even feelings that would have had us running for the hills in the past. Even the previously intolerable feelings can be there, because it isn’t telling us anything about us, other than what we are thinking, right now.

This diagram represents the new paradigm, where we, through insight, no longer split feelings into positive and negative.

When we have a feeling that we would have previously described as negative, it is OK. It passes as it is not being judged. There is less and less suffering.
