How often do you go from pleasure to pain? It's all in the thought.
It amazes me how if I am not connected to a place of gratitude and thankfulness, how I can start to question my actions and my existence at that present moment. I can not go from grateful to sadness or being worried without allowing those thoughts to creep in. What I have found is that most of the time they are helped along by others. I can be in a state of loving and be around someone who isn't so loving and feel the energy get sucked right out of me. It is only when I am fully aware of what is happening that I can stop the process and make a decision to block my thoughts from going to that not so fuzzy place. It takes steady practice and I find that when I am in a vulnerable, low mood that I attract more of that which I don't want. Helpless and hopeless are not friends of mine. Strength and wisdom are. Keeping an eye on your thoughts and feelings is stepping into the awareness game to go from pain up the ladder to pleasure.
