When you are moving forward, by instinct, you are leaving something behind.
The emotions related to moving forward are mixed with excitement and sadness.
The steps to stay on your life path and bring the positive blessings to you will include some form of emotional hurdles. Some decisions will be easy like, “cleaning house” and donating the old clothes and unused furniture that are collecting dust. Other decisions may prove to be more difficult when they involve moving past an emotional connection with another person or animal.
Emotions however, are a necessary component to life. If emotion was not involved, life would just slip away with no attachments to people, places, or things. Imagine how life would be with no emotions… you would just be going through the motions, not being attached to anything. The closest you can get to the thought of emotional detachment is depression; when you go through the motions of life but don’t connect with anything.
The emotions are what help us grow. Each emotion has a purpose to get you through something or to connect with something.
If everything was perfect, like in heaven, we would all understand each other from the moment we connected. There would be no need for explanations of why you feel a certain way or why you react the way you do. When you connect with someone, you instantaneously would understand the emotion, reactions, and thoughts of that person or situation. Life would be that easy. Since we are not in a perfect world, we can look at the emotion on this planet as a learning tool; one which helps us move up the “ladder” so to speak.
The challenge with all this emotion is to balance it. Emotions are constantly changing in and around you and if you allow them to take control, you will notice things are not working correctly; as represented by the extreme emotions of: anger, hysteria, stress, obsession, lust, greed, and narcissism.
Balancing does require responsibility to want to be better than the emotions want you to be. And when you have gone off balance, pulling yourself back can be a very difficult task.
Balance does not mean you won’t have highs or lows. It simply means you are in control of those emotions when they affect you. In this state of balance, you know when to walk away, you know when to be quiet, and you know when to be appropriately overly caring. You are in control and may not even realize it; you just do and know the limits in your heart. God helps you to sense the limits.
Emotions are the way to getting all your soul desires from this existence.
They are to be embraced and enjoyed. To help with growth and connection.
The best way to survive the weight of them is to learn to balance. Know your limits and trust they are right. If it feels right, even when it’s difficult, then you have found the key to understanding and surviving.
Much Love and Balance.
