Have you ever said something innocent that someone else got TRIGGERED by?
and then YOU got triggered and THEY got even MORE triggered because YOU are REACTING to THEIR REACTION?
Oya Moochka Hannah Hee Knee!
We “highly sensitive” types can get totally blown off our “rails” by this kind of stuff…
Well, as someone who all my life was told, “You’re too sensitive,” I’ve done my fair share of triggering and getting triggered. It’s like a SLAP in your FACE. SMACK!
And it SUCKS! OUCH! intense pain. yuck.
If you’ve ever read “The Mastery of Love” by Don Miguel Ruiz he shares a metaphor about a planet where no-one has skin. and when they touch each other it freaking HURTS.
That’s the deal with this triggering stuff.
You can’t protect yourself by AVOIDING it. Because it almost ALWAYS happens when you least expect it.
BUT if YOUR life was a video game… You’d be not only expecting it. but LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!
Every difficulty every “enemy” every “adversary” is in that game to make it INTERESTING and to build your skill level.
AND just in case you actually had other things to do yesterday, I released one of my personal favorite songs with full accompaniment by this year’s line up of my band, “The Rogue Mystics”… I particularly like the drummer. He’s got a lot of intensity even if he does drop his drumsticks frequently…
Life In Song #353 “You Know I Feel You”
The Level up for me is I also released it to a worldwide distribution service that supposedly will get it out on everything from I-Tunes to Spotify…
You can support this Life In Song project by buying the single for a buck here:
If you don’t know what those are, never mind. Bu part of MY practice is to practice putting my stuff out without any attachment or expectation of a return in my lifetime.
I call it my “Grove of Walnut Trees” it’s part of my “Farming and Gardening Theory Practice”…
In other words, I HAVE to DO this. But it may take awhile. So be it.
So my dear friends. Today? WE LEVEL UP! Boom!
