The Melodrama Experience

There are so many signals being absorbed by the human nervous system, the sensory input overload can be quite discombobulating. One minute there may be the thought of A-Ha! I’ve got it! And the next moment questions arise, and the knowing that there is much more to be learned is present in mind.

There are scenes played out that snag the attention, they can cause a tugging, a pulling of the heart strings. A situation may arise where one reaches for a certain ‘happening’, applying energies there, only to have emotions violently shaken and made aware that the situation is false, intended to syphon emotion, an experiment if you will, to see just how far the manipulation can go.

Melodrama plays out in the mind, personal thoughts bouncing from one extreme to the next. It also occurs in the physical activities and relationships, one minute here, the next over there … constantly roiled and tossed about, peace rarely found.

How does one stay steady? How does one disconnect from the drama and maintain centered focus? Some say meditation, some say exercise, some say solitude, some say you just have to be ‘strong’ without actually giving instruction on the how’s or whys.

My inclination is in the intentional quieting of the mind. I don’t particularly agree with the ‘label’ meditation, for that implies one must do something to achieve peace. Rather, I view it as an allowing of silence, a focus on the breath while thoughts come and go.

There will always be those who desire to attain your attention, and they will manipulate it anyway they can to gain their desired results.

A few things to consider:

~ Recognize the outside connect. This connect sometimes happens on the inside as well.

~ Senses must be heightened in order to identify the pull.

~ A deliberate focus on where personal energy is allowed to be sent must be honed.

~ Awareness of the breath should be part of daily exercise.

~ Vocal toning while hands are on chest allows the physical sensation of personal vibration.

~ Turn off the television and rest in silence. Be present with what you find there.

~ Practice manipulating the sending out, and retrieving of, your thoughts and your energies.

Realization of the push and pull of energies in any given environment you may find yourself in is crucial to maintaining balance and a sense of peace. If time and effort are not applied to gaining this knowledge a continuation of abuse will be … no control of what happens in personal space will be obtained.

Being the authority in ones own life is much more that rebelling against, or fighting for … it is a conscious awareness of what is happening to the thoughts and whether personal power is being sucked out and applied willy nilly by an outside force, or whether we quietly and calmly choose to apply it where we deem fit.

No one said it would be easy. Humanity has been trained to be surface level, not diving deep into what makes them tick. This is only a habit which has been embedded in minds.

The choice is there to be made, only you can decide what you choose, it’s all mental … the imagination is a powerful tool … one which you control, or one which you allow to be controlled.

Reject the desire to play judge. We are all on a journey, all paths are difficult, even when they seem, from the outside, to be easy. There is no way to know the secret pains of another so there must be space made to consider they might have our own trials, perhaps to a lesser or heavier degree. Honor their journey as you must honor your own.

Choice … Therein lies the power. Use it. War and defense is not necessary, for in non-participation, in choosing to disconnect from melodrama and focusing inner power where it is for the highest and greatest good for self, and for those the self comes in contact with, balance will simply show up. Allow it. You’ll feel better for it, and so will those in your surroundings.
