Emotionally Stuck

Nothing from the outside truly controls you regardless of the injustice; either real or made up. It’s the stuck emotions attaching to what happens that cause certain reactions to occur…

Staying in the flow of what happens in your daily life has immense value in the process of waking up from the sleep of unawareness. What happens if awareness isn’t expanded upon is your emotions become stuck and they control you; they become the master and you the slave. The stuck emotions is what causes reactions to life in the way that they do. Nothing from the outside truly controls you regardless of the injustice; either real or made up. It’s the stuck emotions attaching to what happens that cause certain reactions. When one awakens, the attachment to emotions lessens and their control lessens. When my mom died to say I will feel no emotions is ludicrous, but I don’t have to get stuck to them and turn it into the suffering of grieving. Same thing if something is done that makes you mad, feel being mad, but let the being mad energy flow, don’t attach to it and get stuck to it so anger arises, this way you remain aligned with life.

This is how it is with all emotions, fear becomes crippling when you become stuck and it takes you over. It doesn’t mean things won’t scare you, but it’s doesn’t have to be given the energy that turns it into fear. This applies to any emotion you become attached to, it gets stuck to the associated emotion and there’s no telling what reactions will arise. I guarantee you, it’s not going to be a reaction that has love as its base. Emotions will arise, it’s the way the brain seems to be wired, but our energy doesn’t have to give them more power than they’re worth. We can cry our tears, or be fearful of the future. We can dislike that things aren’t going the way we think they should be, but the bottom line is it’s only when the emotions get stuck that they’re given the energy to stop being aligned with life and cause not only your own suffering, but the suffering of all beings…
