Our emotions are energy in motion. This literally means there is an energetic aspect to them, as well as a function. Each emotion represents and aspect of self that is in a more condensed form. This is why we are able to name the emotion.
We can only name what is in form, for it is the form that allows us to “see” what is before us; or what we are experiencing. Naming is a way of understanding, sharing and codifying.
All forms are patterns or systems of energy. Patterns of energy are also relating patterns. We know how to relate to something or someone by the form we perceive it to be. In other words a form shows us how to relate to it. If I see a basketball this type or form shows me what game to play or how to use this form. If I see a football or a tennis ball these forms show me the game to play.
A type of relationship shows us how to relate or relays a general idea of what to expect in our interaction with a person; or in a type of situation. This is a structure or form of energy and it has a pattern that calls it into existence.
If I am seeking employment and go to an interview for the position I am seeking there will be a certain form of energy and expression of this energy between the interviewer and myself. This form of energy has a quality of energy. Our forms of energy expression and relating patterns of energy are not etched in stone; however they do carry within them a template or prevailing structure.
The truth of our being is beyond the label or name of the emotion. We are the energy in motion in the process of becoming form or releasing the form. As soon as energy has become an emotion; which we create as an expression of our being we have literally moved on from that emotion. I like to call this place the “free form” place. It is the place of our potential becoming and unfolding. This is the place before we are formed.
You see this place with children. Young children rarely hold onto their emotional states, unless well-meaning adults ask them to do so; and or “name” what they are moving through or going through. Toddlers fall down, scrape their knees and cry out of hurt, frustration and perhaps a bit of shock. If there is something sufficient in their environment to catch their eye they then forget about their mishap and follow their new focus.
I am not saying toddlers, children, and all of us, in fact, don’t need to understand ourselves, as well as, each other emotionally. We do. I am suggesting, however, that when we over focus on the emotional state of our being to the exclusion of the energy it represents we begin to become stuck in a “conditioned response” pattern and a chronic mode of being.
The Spirit of our Being is fluid. As in yoga when it is said the spine is flexible the mind is fluid and the being adapts. This is a large part of health and healthy living.
When we are chronically stuck chances are we are not using the energy of the situation or the emotion to create or self- express.
If you are feeling “stuck” look for ways to move your energy. This will move the energy of the situation. Find ways of self-expression & creative expression. – Sing, write a song, paint, draw, write a poem, dance, sketch, do flowetry, rap, create a garden that reflects your path and situation write now.
I also suggest keeping a diary, as well as audio notes on the experiences of your path and emotional expression. Do what you can to move and express the energy that you feel. Give it form so you can move back into the formless of your being to respond from your Spiritual Center; your true nature. This also purifies the emotional body and the energy within to move into inspiration and aspiration. k
Giving physical expression and form to your energy allows a creation or manifestation of the particular energy pattern and will naturally move you through the form of the pattern. Spiritual energy is not static. Since we are not static this will move you into your center point where you re-calibrate and a new configuration of energy is now possible.
This re-calibration puts you at a new causal point. Our body-mind naturally wants to express, expand and unfold to a new causal point. In essence you could say we are a causal point from the Original Causal Point – Source energies that keeps on creating new levels of causal points or expressions.
We are in continuous movement, which we are continually meeting the unknown in ourselves, others as well as our life circumstances. This is the way of Spirit and the “Template of the Soul”.
