who is the i? Sounds like thought, not the true Self which is existence itself and doesnt question itself. Its beyond thought chatter... so ill stop blabbing.
Maybe you could offer to go to a movie / other activity to make up for it?
I said maybe next time we can go out...
Hooray for holidays Raf. Sounds like you need it
You sure I need it :)
or normal. All states are transient, ephemeral, changing, changing as are all phenomena. Inside & outside Nature is in constant flux.
I understand that and accept. But when the states are very high and low rapidly I suffer. Even if I be very very happy, the next day I feel down.
Sounds like New England coastal weather. People choose to settle here to remain close to the coasts. We accept the mercurial & unpredictable conditions. The mind can be like this-one day sunny, next day tempestuous.
Im curious. Do you think the suffering comes because of the sudden changes or is there an expectation that the mind shouldn't be like this or is there a desire for moods to be more predictable?
Not UK. But sure I'm close to the coast. I don't think is just the weather. I do need to take some time outside the house, and if it's raining I can't. Just affects me in that days that I need to be outside to clear my mind.
The moods comes exclusively from events of my life. Stress, anxiety, etc. And that makes me need to take fresh air and play with my cat, and do things outside. Bad weather difficult that. But even in sun shine I feel bad too.
it's a desire for moods to be more predictable. But life isn't predictable, so my moods will never be.
