The whole point of feeling better consistently is that we can finally arrive at a point where real love is within reach.
Genuine love for ourselves and others is something we experience when we are in alignment with our inner being, what we sometimes call God.
But feeling better is like any practiced skill. You can’t go to the heights of skill right away.
I can’t start learning the piano and immediately begin playing my favourite pieces. They are too advanced.
But I can keep improving, and if I focus on improving then eventually my favourite pieces will be the next logical step in my improvement.
So while it’s good to be inspired by advanced pieces, it’s also very helpful to focus on improvement as our daily practice and source of satisfaction. Improvement is always within reach, even when Schubert isn’t.
The same applies to “feeling better” by finding relief, and “feeling wonderful” which is a point we will inevitably arrive at by practicing feeling better.
Feel better, find relief, practice that direction and wonderful feelings are inevitably in your path.
Take satisfaction in feeling better and finding relief, and you will master it even more easily.
And relief is so powerful. It can be used on everything. So even when impatience and doubt about your path strike you, look for relief. When you beat yourself up for feeling bad, find relief. When you find past traumas cropping up, find relief. And even when you have sudden insights and clarity and moments of elation, enjoy them but don’t forget relief.
After a time you’ll see all kinds of themes and patterns at play in your life. Just don’t give up. Keep finding relief and you will grow so strong and so sure in it that you will be able to soften any discord in your path, ease the turbulence that sometimes strikes, and find your way assuredly to the feelings of inner love, joy, freedom and contentment you seek.
