Mind barriers disappear when people have had enough of any given or tiring situation. Suddenly the anger or lethargy is replaced by a glorious freedom that empowers. Anything can be achieved in these moments of high potential. Enough mental harassment and most people will stand up and defend themselves – diplomacy can only go so far when emotions are high and the balance is one-sided.
All human beings are highly emotional unless it is trained out of them in severe circumstances; such as harsh governmental regimes, strict cultural norms and radicalised cults. No one needs this heaviness of mind; it is not a natural state to be in. When the innocent get pushed too far, the breaking point follows and action is the almost unconscious answer. That driving force of defence and empowerment flows with the strength of a river current. There is no way back, forward is the only direction, win or lose.
Calmness is the optimal state to be in, why live life any other way? Productivity and enjoyment of a chosen occupation or pastime creates an ambience of joy. Family life should be happy and inspiring, so individuals can grow and learn about the diverse planet they live on. Yet a misguided few continue to disrupt the flow of daily life. Help is needed so destructive personalities can find the cause of their pain or disconnectedness, everyone deserves options and healing. Those not born into loving families have a difficult path, but this does not excuse acts of continuous disruption.
Sometimes people get themselves in a pattern of dreary or wearisome living, but when the catalyst comes, change is the welcome reward. The new or untried suddenly become allies instead of objects of fear. Mind barriers are learned or self-imposed and can be dismantled when recognised. Life is to be fully lived whether it is difficult or not – there is no easy ride through life, though you can soften the edges with love and wisdom.
