Capturing Emotion Through the Camouflage of Life
The simply amazing dichotomy of existence within the human race is reflected in the superlative similarity of each of us as “organisms”, contrasted with the magnificent uniqueness and singularity of spirit within each of us. Simply put, as common as we are visually, we are uncommonly special within our mind and soul.
The trillions of life experiences, interactions, information, emotions, relationships, preferences, opinions, behaviors and habits have molded each of us as a vessel created by a potter. Importantly, our essence ultimately becomes what we think, dream and hope; and fear.
Of all the emotions along the spectrum of life, Love and Hate rise above all others in amplitude, intensity, impact and consequence. Recognizing and observing emotions, however, can be anything but straightforward or sequential.
A smile, in reality, can be intense dislike; tears can be the touchstones of happiness; calm can be the quiet before the storm or specifically, a twister roaring across the valley. You see, even though we are relatively simple and physically organic beings, we are likewise, complex, intelligent, multi-dimensional nerve-bound sensory spirits.
At our best, or perhaps at our worst, we can possess and exhibit multiple emotions simultaneously, potentially resulting in others receiving mixed or confusing “signals” and us likewise experiencing a primordial concoction of emotions.
The lessons to be learned in the midst of emotional “warfare” that we affectionately refer to as Life are many. Compassion for others reigns supreme, followed closely by listening without filters (judgment), humility in thought/reaction, and finding and expressing empathy for each other.
The world will become a kinder and gentler place when we can focus on and master these four fundamental disciplines of life. Indeed, we will become more human than we ever thought possible or could have dreamed.
Collectively, the human race will be elevated to a higher plane of existence. Most notably, we will find ourselves closer to God. Be well.
