How to Deal with Sadness


From time to time, you're going to feel sad. And you're going to wonder what to do about it and who to approach and how to get around it. Sadness is part of nature, and it's a bit of downtime so that there's three. Let's talk about this for a minute.

There's three levels of sadness. 

There's physical, mental, and spiritual, or let's call it for that for the sake of a better word, emotional. Physical sadness comes when the when our physical body runs out of juice, and that's typically the possibilities typically because we're not Well, typically because our immune system is breaking down. We might be over exercising, but typically the most common reason for sadness in the physical body is that we're living in fight flight we're living in got to where we live in a got to state of mind we're on red alert, so we're always nervous. We're always on the edge.

We're always worried that disasters going to come or something's gonna break or we're gonna get fired from our job or divorce from a partner or our partner is going to run away with the milkman or the woman or whatever's gonna happen. We're worried that the sky is gonna fall and this physical experience of being in a state of Red Alert is really expensive. And it results in deep, deep, deep, emotional, sad mental and emotional sadness. But it comes from the physicality of our nervous system being in Red Alert. Balanced centred calm is the solution. balanced mind centred body, calm nerves, the things that trigger our nervous system to make it sad, our fear, guilt, and of course, all the substances that we put into our body that heighten it. So anything that makes your body feel great, is going to make it feel shitty, and therefore sad at the end of the day, so first things first, we deal with the physical because it's the most logical and the most typical of the causes of sadness. The second one is mental sadness, in a mental sense comes from a perception of loss, that we lost something that we could have had something, loss and regret. They go hand in hand. And when we go, gee whiz, I lost an opportunity. I lost a job, I lost some money, I lost my car, I lost my car keys, and sadness will ensue.

Sadness is a mask in the mental world for anger. So when a person's going around going I'm really sad that this happened. I'm really sad. What they're basically saying is I'm using sadness to put a cap on what I really feel, which I'm not allowing myself to really feel is the damn anger that something happened that I lost control of, but that went away. That was taken from me was stolen from me. And so, the perception of anger and therefore loss and therefore sadness, which are layers to the same thing in the mental world, can be overcome through the process of abundance that nothing's ever missing. It just changes form and if you lose your car keys or you lose a million dollars or you lose a job, you gained something else in a different form. And everybody's conscious of the idea, live in the now or appreciate and be grateful for what you've got. But when they lose something, they seem to fall out of that paradigm and fall into the anger underneath the table, which is going to kill us all. Because as you will know, anger is the fundamental trigger for the cancer. Growth in the human body. That's the that's the that's the trigger that erodes the immune system. You know that every human being on the planet has things attacking itself right from the get go. And we have an immune system which overcomes that and when the immune system breaks down, or the hammering is perpetual, onto that cellular structure, we create what's called cancer breakdown of the cells.

And so even though we might be very stoic, and we might be on railway tracks in terms of our mental state, and our emotional state, when when we get angry, and it's hidden by sadness, that's the most dangerous thing we can have. And so, learning to apply the rule of abundance can really make a difference to your health and to your well being, if you apply quickly. The third level of of sadness is a spiritual sadness. There is an inevitability in life and that things change and there is inevitability that the most caught the greatest constant in the entire universe is change. And that's an irony because quite often, we measure how we did things last week in order so we can do them the same this week because last week it worked, but it won't, because the world is changing the you know, the world is going at a million miles an hour around the sun, and it's spinning like a top and we think we're standing still but we're not and the world is getting closer to the sun. People are dying all around the planet. The global globe is warming up. The business world is shrinking. There is not as much production of cash. There is more and more people on the planet than there ever was before in the history. The diseases are taking over and taking control way faster than the pharmaceutical companies can cause them and therefore repair them. So it's a very big dynamic. And when we get a little overwhelmed by the pace of change, and we try to stay in an old model of how to deal with that change, we get what's called the overwhelming depth of spiritual sadness. And it's sort of starts a process.

I met many people in my lifetime, who are committing what Paul Bragg and his wonderful book about fasting calls slow suicide. They're actually wishing the whole thing would come to an end of no real immediacy of their own causation but they're kinda like would welcome a huge long break, as you call it. And they start drinking alcohol to excess start feeling lazy, they stop caring about the the tidiness of their existence or the collective and what they're basically doing is going down a slippery slope headed hoping for or subconsciously declaring for the end will come. And we have to be careful when we meet people like this. It's often called depression but it's very often recognised by obesity. It's recognised by people being full on people being lazy people being unproductive and, and and in some cases addicted. So they're the three levels of sadness we have to watch out for. I've given you three solutions. Nature, intense sadness to be there. It's not an aberration. It's not something we need to beat ourselves up about. Sadness is one of the red flags nature's nature gives us to get back on track to look at the way we're approaching things. Both physically, mentally, spiritually, or emotionally and keep ourselves in a really healthy loving space. This is Chris You have a beautiful day. Bye for now.
