Highs and Lows
When I stopped being persuaded by my highs and lows, I started feeling my highs, higher, and my lows became much more stable.
Let me clarify, when I say, “stopped being so persuaded”, I mean I stopped being persuaded by the things that were causing the high and low in the first place.
Instead, I stayed with the feelings they produced. I experienced what I call bliss — my body felt warm, electric, and excited. I also experienced what I know to be called doubt in which my body felt cold and distance and isolated.
I stayed with the feeling, more than I stayed with the experience or situation that gave me the feeling, because, if I can work with and stay with a feeling, I can stay and move through almost anything. I can live in my body, and be okay.
My highs and lows now, aren’t so treacherous. I don’t put them on a pedestal. They aren’t as significant to be as they used to be. They are just feelings that arise, exist, and move on.
