So that’s the background! NOW S P A C E. The title the subject of this blog, “DOING WHAT FEELS GOOD”. I decided to write this blog after a long weekend of partying and noticing some common themes in the club. One theme that stuck on in my mind was alcohol and drug use. How many of us have been to a club sober? WOW! It sucks! I have done it and I wanted to jump off the curb! It’s hard to be an over sexualized, illusionary environment when you are in the mental space to absorb what you are really seeing. Instead of realizing that you feel uncomfortable for a reason and leaving, we resign to dull our senses by way of alcohol or drugs. When we look at this objectively we can see how doing what FEELS good, doesn’t always lead to doing what IS good. But alcohol isn’t the only thing that this applies to, you can think about any vice, such as gossip. That’s a simple one. Have you ever caught yourself talking about someone, discussing their life events and feeling good about it? Didn’t part of you feel good that so and so wasn’t doing as good as you were? Or when you talked about how this person’s relationship wasn’t going to work, silently patting yourself on the back at how wonderful your relationship was. It’s like we have this sick addiction to negativity and destruction. In my opinion it’s this same addiction that leads us to enjoy television shows, sports, video games, and people that glorify violence. I have never seen the value in watching people get killed or raped. Beyond that I have no desire to feed my deeper mind the idea that these type of things are common enough to happen to me. I have always wondered why the rudest public figures and celebrities get the most attention or the most ignorant tv shows get the highest ratings. It’s not my intention to pass judgment on anyone so I won’t name names…you just fill in the black with whatever comes to your mind. We like to focus on the bad, because it’s easy, familiar, and expected. There is something is us that likes someone who , “tells it like it is” even if that means they are mean, rude, arrogant and nasty to other people. There are some women who truly believe that being a diva bitch is the only way to keep their partner interested. They say, “you gotta keep people on their toes,” or “yea I’m a boss bitch.” WTF?? #fail. What is even more interesting is how much we idolize these people but yet feel both surprised and angry when someone talks to us this way. If you choose to accept people and circumstances like the aforementioned into your life, your deeper mind will get to work creating more of it. Suddenly, you will find yourself walking up the nastiest, meanest heffa your ever met! Months later, you will wonder what you did to deserve this. (I know I did! #true story)!
Fortunately, there is wisdom that comes from all of this. Once we understand the creative process, we can see that we have somehow chosen to be destructive in our surface mind, so our deeper mind leads us to the place and people that will satisfy our choice. This is the reason why we can be doing what feels good and still not get the result that we want. In truth, addicts like doing drugs. It feels good to be high, even though this very same feeling is killing their body. Notice how the body doesn’t have the capacity to stop one from shooting up. Your body will hold as much drugs as you put into it. Your mouth will produce the words to slander any and everyone…… if you will it so. So the idea is to make different choices. Consciously. To take time and energy to ponder what you want to see manifest in your life. What kind of people? What kind of experiences? To choose to be constructive, to uplift other people (and yourself with your speech), to become addicted to healthy thoughts. Then completely inundate yourself with images of these things. Hypnotize yourself with it. Break the addiction with what you deem as bad and replace it. I don’t know about you but when I get in my car, I want my deeper mind to be on autopilot to somewhere pleasant….. not a metaphorical cliff….simply because I have chosen to drive off it a million times before….
Today make a choice to choose joy, peace, prosperity, and so on…. get in the car and let your deeper mind’s GPS map out the path…then MASH THE GAS!!!!
