What ungrounds people

People who live in a frustrated state lose their ground because they have an imagined ideal of how the world "should" be. The dilemma is that the world is how it IS. What you see is what you get, period. When you create a division between what is and what you think should be you immediately set yourself up for failure.

Not all people are nice, not all days are sunny, not all rides are smooth, not all jobs are easy, not all days are great, not all interactions are comfortable, not all meals taste great, not all days you're healthy, not everything is funny, life is not always Disneyworld, every moment is not vacation, every instant can't be spent by the beach, not every moment is fun, every instant isn't comfortable and smooth.

There are mean people, there are crappy days, there are traffic jams, there are shitty jobs, there are bad days, people fight, there are poor tasting meals, sometimes we are sick, there is a lot of sad stuff, life is often hard work, there are times that require focused and narrow intention, one has to face the world, there are moments of tragedy, there are moments of great discomfort and bumps.

This is an attempt to convey the TOTAL truth of life. I've never been a fan of "be positive and don't be negative" thing... positivity IMPLIES negativity... so how about just keeping it REAL?

It takes a high degree of maturity to take what I am speaking about to the depths that it deserves. When people ingest the truth the world will be a much more effective place, not that I am waiting for it or demanding it. As far as I know life is fine just the way it is. The world is built on DUALITY so there is nothing within the world that holds the promise of permanence and stability. This is why deep and true spirituality is such an attraction to many of us because it has the power to takes us to a third perspective that allows us to connect with that which is beyond the opposites... that which is free, unbound, nondual and eternal.

If you're graced enough to stumble upon it, you're bound to get caught in it for some time, but remember bills are a reality and you have a life to lead. You will most likely inevitably get caught in there for quite a while -- but remember, you always have to come back from Disneyland. There is no perpetual vacation. The fact is you have a life to lead -- and as scary as that might seem, you can do it! I guarantee it! A tip? Hook into what you desire most.
