I wonder if I’ve sometimes created a tempest in a teapot out of boredom. If I get upset about something, then I have the upset to deal with rather than the boredom. 

Do I seek fear to avoid boredom?

For the anxiety-prone part of me: “Sometimes I simply have to disengage my mind from worry.  That seems the healthiest way to live, and I have not always been able to do that.”

There is a truth about mental illness that sometimes only the mentally ill, and those who counsel troubled people, see.  At the heart of a split from “reality” may be a glimpse of true reality. And perhaps there is a partially formed mystic crying to get out. 

Who knows but that a psychotic sufferer has opted to jump ahead by one of the most wrenching means?  Who knows what contributions recovery—and their next life—will bring?

One thought on “Tempests”

  1. There are no missteps, but there are natural cycles to being. Mental illness can also be self constructed because of where are energies gravitate to. Boredom is a time of Stillness, one of the Twelve Jurisdictions and a collapsing of the energetic Ray fields only to be readjusted and readied for the next expansion cycle. In your mind’s eye you maybe seeing different colors or images, but that’s normal. We are all seeking balance in our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. These strands of our humanness are beings re-braided to carry higher vibratory resonance. Sometimes we must embrace the boredom for the above to transmute our beings. What helps in the meantime are seeking community not isolation, trust the process and do no harm. ♥️
