Truth... In Our Grounded State We Are Open To Our Pain And Discomfort.
Distortion... pain and discomfort do not feel good, so pain and discomfort are bad and should be avoided. An unconscious distortion, we should feel good most of the time. When we are out of balance, not using healthy coping skills and awareness most people end up chasing the rabbit to varying degrees. This is an addiction term for chasing a high or feeling good.
What we need to keep in mind is addiction isn't only about drugs. We live in an addictive culture. It is time to see the truth. In awareness we can start choosing to change.
The call to your Soul... that you may start feeling this huge distortion. I encourage you to be open to seeing and feeling for yourself how this belief leads to addictive behaviors. It is time to see how normal it is to self medicate, distract ourselves trying to feel good, keeping busy--living in avoidance, etc.
This is not to say we cannot have fun or feel good, that is not the point. Feeling good and having fun are part of a balanced life. This is about being out of balance to the point of becoming addicted to feeling good and avoiding natural pain, discomfort of life, changes and the needed deaths that aid us in evolution.
The truth is, when we are living in our natural state we are grounded and open to our pain, discomfort and all that pain and discomfort mean to show us about ourselves and our lives.
These feeling states are part of our internal call to embrace what is real! This is part of our life experience and our humanity. We can learn to be comfortable with our discomfort. It will not kill us. Instead we become healthier and whole by listening to our bodies speaking to us and trying to show us potential problems that need to be loved, addressed, solved and healed.
The Reality... It is natural to feel uncomfortable as it is part of life. Bad things happen in life, loved ones die, relationships end, we have daily stressors, real life issues and wounds.
Pain and Discomfort are natural... they are here to alert and awaken us, so we can heal and become whole... seeing what is true and what needs tending.
Be open to all your body has to tell you for your Soul Victory beckons!
