The internal state of "Good" gives the joy of life and energy, makes man a source of joy for himself and for others. This state is familiar to everyone, but the attitude to it is very different: for someone it is the habitual background of life, for another - a rare expensive gift of fate, for some - a pleasant trifle, an accidental mood on a par with any others, for a developed personality - a matter of vital ethics, an inner commitment to oneself and life. Such a state of "Good" has already a rather complex structure, consists of several "layers": it is an inner mental position, accompanied by inner mental actions, as well as multifaceted impressions and experiences as a result of internal position and internal actions.
Well - not necessarily an experience
As a state, "Good" is not necessarily getting high and joy. For many people, and more often for business men with a focus on business, not feelings, the state of "Good" is basically not an experience. Their "Good" is more a life philosophy than an emotion, it is a vital attitude and conviction that the world is good, friendly and beautiful. This is the state of accepting the peace of anyone, enjoying peace and life, the habit of seeing the positive in everything: the best that is in it.
Translated into the language of the structure is an internal position plus internal actions. And that’s all. Experiences are not necessary here.
Pleasure is an action, not an experience. Pleasing to the world and life is an active spirit of the soul, when I admire myself with the world, I admire him, I find time after time in him all the new beautiful features - and celebrating them!
Well - this is not the feeling that comes to you. This is the choice that you make.
Well - this is a state of mind in which you really learn to see the good, that is, you do not call bad good, but you search in the bad - good and this good rejoice.
Friends were once robbed. Brought everything except the most difficult. In the evening they call us on the phone and happily share: "You imagine - they did not touch our dog! But they could knock something! Thank God everyone is alive and there were no children in the house: we were just lucky! And the fact that things endured - so we will earn, we will buy new ones. " On the one hand - you can see lost things, money, bleak prospects for the right job - and then it’s Bad, but you can see live children, a healthy pet dog, the opportunity to make money and upgrade furniture - and that’s really good!
Is it always such a vital attitude and such actions that will give you the necessary sensory experiences, will your soul always sing? - Of course not. This is only the direction of psychic life, and whether it will be successful at any particular moment depends on your mental strength, on external circumstances, and on that mysterious circumstance called "internal benefits."
For young children, the condition "Good" is natural and is a normal background of life, over time, children learn to "turn on" and "turn off" this state, using it primarily for manipulating parents: showing "good" when parents do what they want , and demonstrating suffering when parents do not provide them. Adult people in this respect differ little from children, they just do not react to the actions of their parents: they usually feel good when they get what they want from life and are unhappy when their expectations are not justified.
The inner "Good!" Is more common to people who are grateful and wise. A grateful person will always find something to thank thanks to life and people around him, ungrateful - even in the best way he can find a bad one, for which he will sulk and swear. See →
An ungrateful person does not appreciate what life gives him. He met a beautiful girl, but does not thank the world for this meeting, but sighs that she will soon leave him. He lost the opportunity to work - and takes offense at being fired, repeatedly chews up old grievances, gets upset and sighs, instead of saying "Okay! and Thank you! "for what was.
In many people, the state of "Good" is inserted genetically, strengthened by upbringing and is a natural fusion of persuasion and state of mind. For other people, the state of "Good" is not natural, but they set the task of producing it. It’s real. How? The state of "Good" is created and maintained by a smile, a general spiritual program, service programs, beliefs and other means of controlling the state of mind, and also by real affairs, improvement of life and control of circumstances.
"Good" is always given to people who are used to think about people, and not just about their interests: after all, when something happens that can be called "badly" from the habit, it becomes difficult not only for one person but several for this. If everyone is bad - and who will then support others? Who will take care of nullifying the consequences badly?
"Good", like any other skill at first it turns out to be difficult and "artificially", that is unusual. However, this is only a matter of time, you only need to exercise, and after a while "Good!" Will become a habit, a natural state. Timing? Usually it is from two weeks to two months while working half an hour a day. The directions of work are described in the exercise "Good".
What s next? Is it necessary for a person to develop and change something further in his life, if "always good" has become the natural background of his life? Everyone decides this question according to his own philosophy of life. It happens that on this personal growth and development stops, a person turns into a "happy vegetable". If a person lives in the Creator’s position, then, having solved the issue with emotions, he begins to live and develop only more energetically, setting himself more serious tasks. See →
