Reality is a multi-faceted experience which is recorded by mental perception that is shaped by socialization and values which frame the belief paradigm which guides us. Our understanding of that paradigm underlies the basis for action and choices.
Our life history so far shapes how we perceive events and how we respond to change in our life. Our ability to respond to change calmly and positively depends on how we perceive it face value and how our expectations of future effect on our lives. That’s when fear and anxiety are likely to appear in our consciousness to modify our reaction. Our ability to not be overwhelmed by our emotions when they arise will determine our cortisol response. This is the emotional barometer of how we respond to crises and changes in our lives.
The extent to which we secrete cortisol to manage stressful situations or events in our lives determines our future health to a great extent. Our past sets us up for success or failure in dealing with life. How we interpret the present events will determine how we respond to them with anger, fear, or sorrow contrasted with a response of calm, acceptance, and hope. Our task is to control how we respond by having control over the limbic region of our brain and the solar plexus region of our lower emotional centre.
This chakral management is achieved through becoming heart-centered in our approach to perception and understanding reality. Through this focus we manage our perceptions of reality with compassion and through a positive lens of faith and hope. Through this lens we can control our mental abstract formation of ideas and thoughts and then mediate how we respond verbally through control of our throat chakra or concrete mental body.
By controlling our perceptions, thoughts and speech we can control our actions and respond with compassion, feelings of inclusiveness and belonging rather than with a response of exclusion, separateness, and indifference to the outcome of our actions or reactions to our perceptions.
Peace arises from inner serenity which gives rise to joy and bliss which is source of inner happiness, solace, and nirvana.
