I’ve always thought that we, human, have 3 different states of mind: happy, neutral, and unhappy
Until mindfulness teaches me a new perspective
That is, having nothing to be unhappy about is actually a state of happiness.
Lemme give you an example.
My mom’s arms have been hurt lately, so much that she couldn’t raise them.
I feel unhappy about it — because she’s in pain, and I could do nothing but watching her through the phone when we video call.
And when her pain goes away, I instantly feel happy, and released.
But that happy state wouldn’t last for long, it would soon become the so-called neutral feeling.
So basically, I would feel neutral when life is NORMAL
No good news nor bad news
No fun nor sorrow
But if I practice mindfulness, I could turn my neutral feeling into a positive state of mind.
I’m happy because I have nothing to be unhappy about!
And I hope you could also feel the same :)
