The Random Nature of Our Emotional Experience
This Vlog was going to be an inspiring message about how it is possible to stay neutral and philosophical even in the face of challenges, but then Angus had a bit of a wobbler when the dog started wandering around and the more relevant point became how random it is what thoughts we get stirred up by and which ones we don’t. We sailed through some pretty big challenges, for the most part unruffled, but the dog knocking over the light and looking like he was going to eat the orchid got under Angus’ skin.
This just points to how random the human emotional experience. We hope our humanness makes the experience of your humanness more fun and light-hearted. You don’t need to put pressure on yourself to improve and be better. That is a given, a natural part of your learning and growth. So instead of focusing on fixing or improving yourself, you can instead relax, step back, and appreciate the divine play of your infinite nature showing up in human form in the myriad of ways it does. The great cosmic joke is that there is nothing to fix and you are what you are seeking. As Alan Watt’s said, “People suffer only because they take seriously what the gods made for fun.”
