I’ve lost count of the times that I’ve been here…

I’ve lost count of the times that I’ve been here…
Weird
Image by ashley.adcox
Mixed states. For weeks on end. It’s been exhausting. I’ve slept entire days away (literally), and I’ve gone days without sleeping. My days and weeks are blending and blurring. I couldn’t tell you when I last woke up. …I just flat out have no idea. That’s a really freaking weird state of mind to be in.

I’ve simply stopped trying to care. No more taking initiative for me…I’m just letting things happen as they will. That sounds crappy, I’m sure…but thus far I guess it’s been working out okay. Picked up a few photo gigs, so that should bring in a bit of money, therefor removing the guilt trip of wasting my life and whatnot. That’s the good thing about photography…I can make as much money in a single afternoon as I made in a week of working part time. Granted you throw editing into the mix, but I never mind editing…it’s just the part of having to be out in the world that wears me down.

The vast majority of March has been a giant blur due to the mixed states. I’m teetering between highs and lows- and constantly being ping-ponged between the two. Needless to say, it’s quite confusing…thus why I just stopped trying and gave over to it. After years of doing this, I’ve finally realized that it’s a lot easier to just shut your eyes and let it do what it will, as opposed to trying to fit yourself into some preconceived box when it’s just not gonna work.

I’ve reached the point where I’ve let go enough to where I don’t care if I’m good or bad. If I’m good…life is good, of course I don’t mind. But the lows have gotten so low that nothing from the "real world" applies anymore…surrendering gives you a whole new perspective. You reach a point where you’re so low that you no longer care that you’re low. The fact that you were ever NOT low becomes irrelevant- you no longer try to climb out of it- you don’t care, nor do you have the energy…so you just surrender to the state you’re in…I think it was the climbing that caused the suffering all along, really. There’s something decidedly more comfortable about that state now than there has been in years past. It’s quiet, and very still. My mood/life is total shit, but I’ve become so internal at that point that nothing in the world phases me. My existence has nothing at all to do with the world’s existence. It’s horrific, but it’s blissful.

In the mixed states, when I’ve had good days/hours this month, I’ve had REALLY good days. And I really feel it…I’m thankful for it- I’m not taking it for granted…I recognize in that moment how lucky I am to be having such a great moment. I leave the house. shocker.

When it’s bad…everything just kind of goes to shit for a few hours/days. I’m confused. I lose perspective of time. After a few days, I suddenly learn that it’s been raining all week, and this is a total shock to me- like after 4 days of rain, I had absolutely no idea that it had rained. I don’t leave the house. I don’t do anything. I have no idea how my time passes…I leave myself, in a way.

Balancing those two polar opposites is exhausting- Needless to say, I’m ready to get out of the mixed state area and just settle on a side…I don’t remember it ever lasting this long- I don’t remember ever changing so much, so many times, in such a short period of time.

Surprisingly, I actually have uploaded a bit to Flickr over the last few weeks…but then I always end up not making it public. I’m finding that I think 95% of the stuff I do is too worthless to post…and the 5% that IS worth something ends up being too raw to post. You reach the point of questioning why you do anything.

It’s like conversations.

The only conversations that are ever worth having are the ones that you could never have.

anything worth saying probably shouldn’t be said publicly. Art worth creating should never be shown. half the time I feel that in order to live, I would need to live a life that isn’t worth living. The only conversations that I’m able to have are the ones not worth having. The only conversation worth having is the one I’ll never have. So do I simply not speak? such is life.

what good is art, what good are thoughts, if you can never engage the world with them? And yet honesty becomes less honest when shared.

We crash, crash, crash
With nothing left to burn
We try to turn the tables
We have turned
Covering the cracks
Won’t make them disappear
I’ve lost count of the times that
we’ve been here

What’s the weight,
name the price I must pay

Cos I don’t wanna be the same anymore
Gotta find what I’m here for
But it’s so hard to change
When life gets in the way, yeah

Falls Psychologie interessiert:

Thema: Wie löse ich meine Verwirrung auf?
Psychologische Ebene – mystische Ebene.
Verwirrung. Unwissenheit,

Thema:

Niemand sieht die Welt wie sie wirklich ist, es sei denn er sieht sich selbst. Kannst du behaupten, dass du dich kennst? Kennst du die Wurzeln deines Seins?
Weißes Licht bricht sich in alle Farben. Aus einer einzigen Quelle entspringen alle Farben der Palette. Warum sollte Blau Rot davon überzeugen, Blau werden zu wollen? Doch du kannst dich selbst nur als Rot erkennen, wenn du dich über eine Vielzahl anderer Menschen spiegeln lässt.
Doch hüte dich im Gegenzug davor, jemandem von deiner Sicht der Welt überzeugen zu wollen. Blau kann nicht Rot werden. Der Versuch, den anderen Rot zu machen, verstrickt dich in Kämpfe. Diese sorgen für ein hohes Maß an Emotionen und diese wiederum haben die Neigung, deinen Geist abzudunkeln und verwirrt sein zu lassen.
Die Klarheit des Geistes wächst proportional mit der Abnahme der emotionalen Motivationskräfte. Ist die Klarheit des Geistes erreicht, strebt der Yogi die Harmonisierung seiner Gefühlswelt an.
„Der Geist ist der Himmel, die Gefühle sind die Erde.“ Dieser bildlichen Sprache bediente sich ein Alchemist. Und wenn er über die Erlösung aus der Verwirrung des Lebens sprach, verwendete er das Bild der Vereinigung der Gegensätze. Sonne und Mond werden in einem Zeichen zusammengebracht. Analog zu diesem kann jeder Zeit das Yin und Yang Zeichen gesetzt werden, denn auch dieses zeigt die Vereinigung der Gegensätze.
Die gegeneinander kämpfenden gegensätzlichen Prinzipien, deren Streit für alle Verwirrungen verantwortlich ist, können versöhnt oder geschlichtet werden.
Die gegenseitige Anerkennung von Intellekt und Emotion, von Geist und Körper oder eben auch von Himmel und Erde, erlöst das Bewusstsein aus diesem Konflikt, Der Geist hat nicht mehr die Tendenz, der weltlichen Existenz zu fliehen und der Körper muss den Geist nicht mehr durch Schmerzen in die Wirklichkeit des Lebens zwingen. Der Geist bleibt freiwillig und der Körper lässt den Geist frei.
Die Welt, das Leben, der Alltag, das ist die Verkörperung des Geistes. In der Negativität ist diese Verkörperung sehr unangenehm. Negativität entsteht durch Kampf. Durch ein auf Wettbewerb eingestelltes Denken werden Kampf und Negativität forciert. Daher empfehlen alle Religionen Gewaltverzicht.
Durch den Verzicht auf Auseinandersetzung, Gewalt und Rache, kann sich das Bewusstsein aus der Illusion befreien. Diese Befreiung gleicht dem Erwachen aus einem Traum. Die Negativität ist ein „böser Traum“, sie ist das, was in bildlicher Sprache ausgedrückt die Hölle ist.
Um aus der Verwirrung und der Unwissenheit der höllischen Leidenschaften aussteigen zu können, bedarf es der Abkühlung der Emotionen durch die Ausbildung des intellektuellen Verstehens und der Durchdringung der Gefühlswelt mit dem Verstand.
Diese Durchdringung geschieht mit der Hilfe eines Konzeptes.
Ein Konzept ist wie ein Boot mit dem man von einer Seite zur anderen kommen kann. Der Geist lernt, sich selbst zu verstehen. Sobald ich meine Farbe aus dem Spektrum des Lichtes erkenne, kann ich mich aus den unbewussten Kämpfen lösen und Blau einfach so lassen, wie es ist.
Der Übergriffigkeit von Blau auf meine Farbe kann ich mich durch das geschickte Mittel des Rückzugs erwehren. Wenn ich helfe, dass sich Blau selbst erkennt, wird seine Übergriffigkeit sich auflösen. Er wird ein sich selbst schadendes Verhalten zugunsten seines inneren Glücks aufgeben und eine gemeinsame Zeit der Harmonie zwischen Yin und Yang genießen.
Wenn die Gegensätze miteinander im Frieden schwingen, dann erreicht das Zeichen von Yin und Yang seinen harmonischen Ausdruck, den es im Allgemeinen hat.
Das Yin und Yang Zeichen drückt aus meiner Sicht den idealen Zustand eines Yogi aus. Yogis sind Menschen, die auf dem Weg sind, die Gegensätze zu vereinen. Sind die Gegensätze vereint, ist der Yogi kein Yogi mehr. Mit was sollte er sich noch identifizieren?
Die Nicht-Identifikation ist die endgültige Auflösung der Verwirrung. ;-))
