“Anytime you feel good, you’ve found vibrational alignment with who you really are” By unknown
This concept come to me so often that I have to believe it’s true. I also believe it is crucially important to remember that we are always growing and changing beings. What feels good right now, may feel differently tomorrow, and that just makes sense. I’m not talking about physical sensations here. Those can be spontaneous and new experiences. I’m referring to happiness related good feelings. These seem to be mostly learned reactions. All our life’s experiences up to this moment give us a baseline for comparison on new experiences. They influence how we feel about each new experience. Let’s make something very clear, they don’t decide or dictate how we will react to experiences, they only influence how they feel. We still have the ability to decide what that feeling means and how we will act upon it.
Where was I? Oh, yes. As we grow older our minds fill up with so many experiences that it gets hard to know exactly what the first reaction or baseline feeling was that triggered a new one. Call this instinct, if you want. Call it cellular memory, if you want. Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now tells us to acknowledge the feeling (be aware of it), accept it as it is (It’s good, because it’s good. it’;s bad, because it’s bad), and move on. I think this is more than letting it be. It’s a call to action in the direction of the feeling. If it feel good, pursue it. If it feels bad… decide to look for the opposite and use it to become a good thing.
