SoCS prompt for this week is:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!
Aren’t we all Containers?
We have feelings, emotions, goals, expectancy, humour, memories all stuffed in there, in that container.
When there is love, laughter, satisfaction, happiness overflowing, our whole body knows about it. Physically and mentally, we feel good! So good that others too notice. We spread it. We attract positivities. People like to talk to us, to hang around us etc.
When there is hatred, jealousy, insecurities, low self esteem and bitter feelings it’s exactly the opposite. We spread it too. We give way to deterioration in our physical and emotional well being. We ourselves prefer to be alone, sometimes.
The amount of positive and negative energies keep fluctuating within the container in us. Aren’t we all familiar with mood swings?
True friends and family realise this and accept us through these fluctuations and stick around us. Time teaches us, who these are.
Another point is that, there is always place within the container to learn more! Keep looking….
Trying to keep a balance, trying to keep ourselves in good spirits by increasing the good emotions within us, silencing and accepting the negatives in us, overcoming our insecurities is what we need to keep working on to get that inner peace! Peace with self! Peace of mind… that feeling of being in transcendent state.
