Look In At Yourself !
|Whoa Are We Emotive !|
Usually what kind of thoughts and emotions do we have affinity with?Are they strong,positive,capable emotions?Are they constructive,and self encouraging thoughts?Are we indulging in self deprecating thoughts and feelings more often than self encouraging ones?What kind of emotions and feelings do we have affinity with?Are they cheerful,happy,encouraging feelings and intentions?
Have you noticed the common predicament of the ornery human mind?Well for one thing the moment something undesirable happens our spirits fall.The very next moment when circumstances seem to brighten our spirits rise.
Unpredictable Roller Coaster
So life is a fluctuation ,an unpredictable roller coaster.Not so much on the outside as much as on the "inside"; in the mind.Between the convolutions of the grey coloured mass of neurons in the brain there only is an exchange of millions of electro-chemical impulses.Yet why are the responses so mechanical within one human mind?(BTW,as an aside..the brain is not the mind )Is there an alternative response possible.Well I guess so.We only need to introspect more about ourselves.That calls for colossal doses of honesty and open mindedness.

Transcend The Trap
For those who couldn't muster the guts to transcend the trap of social conformity emotions remained a game of touch and run.One moment someone behaves fine your spirits soar,the next moment they do something "unpleasant" your spirits plummet.One moment circumstances are hunky-dory you feel blissful.The moment things are not to your preferred taste you feel disappointed;and the degree of disappointment varies form mild to intense,depending on what importance you accord to circumstances alone.

The Easiest Path
The simplest path to achieving some modicum of equanimity is to cease looking for outside circumstances and people to conform to our sense of propriety.It is in acquiring a correct attitude to changing circumstances that wisdom and strength arises within us,instead of the other way around.
