Title and vid for today’s post are from the same album (duh). Dragged it out and put it on the other day not as a bandaid but rather as a help aid. Once upon a time, I would play this entire cd before heading into work. It was a marvelous source of energy, maybe more a source of emotional content. “Emotional content?” “Yeah.”
Let’s (try and) drag “EC” (emotional content) out of the closet. We all know what it is but do we all know why we need it? Do we all know how valuable “EC” really is? Emotional Content is the state of being during which wonderful things can be made to happen, it is the state of being during which, as an individual, you can make things happen.
(“I know, I know. Getting a little too clarklike….I know, I know….they can read about the Wakefield Doctrine over there and other places….) But you know what? I don’t care. If a reader stumbles upon this blog and doesn’t care for the words herein, all that is necessary is a click of the mouse and poof! they can be somewhere else. I’d like to think that with the proper emotional content, I can more or less do the same thing with various aspects of my life. No, those “various aspects” won’t disappear with the click of mouse-like fingertips or anything but……
It is possible to change one’s life. It is possible, with proper emotional content to set the things in motion that have the potential to bring about change in one’s life. “But what does that mean?!” If I listen to heavy metal, I can get a new job, a husband/wife…..? “No, not literally.” What I speak of is accessing the place within oneself, the one way deep and sometimes covered with life’s overgrowth – and using it to re-shape your immediate day to day, walk-about world. It is not about just feeling energized. The subtlety is in the ability to allow your body to do most of the work and let the emotional content act through one’s body. (Yo! bucko! ya lost ’em on that one!) OMG! (scotts out there just went to sleep . The rogers? The ones still reading this post are wondering why they (are still reading this post) because if it’s not on the FB then it can’t be very good anyway.)
The FB* version of this post: the body knows first, let it guide you… energy begets energy which in turn facilitates change…focus, feed and sustain…. fight inertia, keep forward motion….and change is more than just a notion* *
