I have days of good and bad, up and down. Not everything for me is sunshine and rainbows. Although, I have been accused recently of being a liar for always being positive, which I find funny.
I see it like this; sure I am a happy guy that laughs and jokes a lot. I do not seem to let things bother me, and that is true. I do not allow things to bother me.
I spent a lot of my life accepting whatever pile of trash was dumped on my doorstep and would complain that it’s not fair why are they always dumping trash here. I would say in my whiny voice. Not realizing that I was living in the trash can.
You see, life happens to me in the same way as it happens to you. It happens, however, the hell it pleases, but I have discovered that I can change where I live mentally and how life happens on higher levels is different.
So, What I am saying is, if your happy and you know it clap your hands. If you didn’t clap, ask why you are choosing to be unhappy. More to the point, why are you allowing your mind and your body to dictate how you feel.
If you are in control of your life the way that you think you are, then shouldn’t they listen to you.
Living on a higher level means learning to manage your own thoughts and physical nature. Managing these things means that even when tired comes, or poverty shows up they are not stabbing me through the heart but are merely passing by as I walk back up the mountain.
Life knocks us all around, it hits us harder than we could ever imagine, but we do not have to succumb to every changing wind in life when we become masters of ourselves. We can grow to understand that we are in charge of these emotions that seem so out of our capacity. We are in control of our bodies that seem to want to fail and forsake us.
I am not saying becoming more in control of the things that knock us off course is possible. I am saying that we must change ourselves to become grounded in an immovable foundation. One that still can grow upwards and outwards but never loses its root.
