Loop Posted June 16, 2022 Share Posted June 16, 2022 (edited) What is wrong? What is wrong? Growing up I always been asked this, by my parents and grandparents constantly. I believe it got me to start framing things in that way. Took a bit to reframe. Last time my grandma said this to me I asked her “Why don’t you ask me what is right?” 😄 Chronic worrying runs in the family it seems, they always seem to be in the mindset of problems that need to be fixed, and if their isn’t one relatively then they make one up. Why can’t it be a joy to tidy the house, or tend to the garden? It is an art, all of it is the practice, every action. Not saying I am a fountain of joy all the time, but it is about what is focused upon, what is being moved towards. I feel as if they are constantly on a downward spiral, focused upon discordant things. It seemed like a constant struggle living with them, constantly attempting to maintain a stable state so I didn’t spiral down into the same mess. How does one maintain equanimity well going through the motions of life? The master is never balanced, they are constantly balancing with what is going on. I’d like to hear about any shifts that anyone has gone through that brought them to a more equanimous state well in action. Is there anything you like to remind yourself of to bring yourself back into Being? Any quick practices, or processes you go through when you notice yourself going into a downward spiral? And your thoughts on how to deal with people who tend towards pessimistic ways of thinking. Edited June 16, 2022 by Loop Quote Mention Ten thousand tears, One Belly Laugh.
