Trying too hard to be a good human being? This can block the flowing waters of healthy passion and expression. The true cost of being “nice” is not felt until its too late. Joy, fun and health are sacrificed. That volcano of churning emotions may blow – inwards or outwards. This is one of our greatest fears. !
When you stuff down the ‘bad’ and only show the ‘good’ the very effort reduces your aliveness, presence and depths. Dumbing down life’s healthy vibrancy for the sake of safety turns the colours to grey. You get ‘STRESSED’ instead.
A safe place for expression and release is needed. If you are feeling over-serious, depressed, anxious, lethargic, suffer aches pains and chronic illness that “you have to learn to live with” or if you have simply forgotten how to play, you will be seeking out that space where you are totally accepted, and can be just the way you are.
