I daydream of meditating for hours. Laying or sitting in silence. My body comfortable and my mind clear. My reality is I am a super busy momma/wife/solopreneur/student. There are things to be done of which I must do. So, I micro-meditate.
Emotions are from perceptions, which are from thoughts and senses. In other words, if I feel happy my emotion is whatever construct I believe is associated with happiness.
Sometimes I liken myself to The Hulk. I’m always mad but I don’t always smash. Then I realize that I am not always mad; rather, I am almost always easily irritated by people when I’ve little time alone.
