Blessed2 Posted May 16 Share Posted May 16 How is the idea that you need to rise from worse-feeling emotions the better-feeling emotions to attract things you want, aligned? How does the idea that you need to rise from bad feelings to good feelings, feel? The scale is fundamentally flawed and just plain unhelpful or even hurtful. So far my experience with it has been: every day I feel like shit because I feel nothing matters and all success in life is impossible because I can't rise on the scale, because I can't feel better. Gee, thanks so much for your fucking scale. If you try to rise on the scale, it will not happen. It's impossible to do that. The idea that there is an emotion above the one you're experiencing, that you have some sort of a direction or higher levels you're going toward in emotions is discordant and hurtful in most basic way. Especially when you throw in a belief that you attract nice things, your objects of desire when you get higher. The scale is so stupid it hurts my body to even think of it. It's so counter-productive and hurtful I'm quite shocked it's even recommended on this forum. How is conceptualization of emotion helpful in any way? The best feeling I experience is when there is not a single thought about the scale. And the more there is, the worse I feel. It's not a ticket to joy/liberation, it's a fucking prison and a highway to despair. I'm sure Phil and Mandy (you're the only ones who actually ever recommend or refer to the scale btw) have a bunch of things to say, some nonsense about pity-parties and HOW I NEED TO DO THE FUCKING SCALE TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT THE SCALE or something. 🤦 How I'm doing something wrong or not understanding the scale. Hamster wheel. The scale will never work. Honestly this whole emotional scale thing feels about the same as levels of god-realization etc. If you can't have a conversation about emotions without referring to the fucking scale, I don't think I can keep using this forum.
