It is not possible to be emotionally well and mentally ill.
My emotional condition is my emotional state of being, which is relative to my mental perspective.
My perspective of life is determined by my mental beliefs and my sub-conscious programming, which is negative when it does not serve me beneficially.
When my mental perspective is negative, my emotional perception, how I feel, is equally negative. The intensity of my negative perspective is relative to the intensity of my negative feelings.
We live in a relative world of cause & effect, where it is just as true to say that my negative thinking causes my negative emotions as it is to say that my negative thinking is the effect of my negative feelings. It is as true to say that one causes the other as to say that neither causes the other.
Cause & effect is a property of this relative world of duality & choice; where duality allows choice, it causes effects and the paradox that cause & effect are the same and different.
My mental and my emotional condition are two contrasting perspectives, or perceptions, of the same energy vibration. When I focus on the frequency of my energy vibration, I am thinking and when I feel the vibration of my energy, I perceive its wavelength.
The wavelength & frequency of an energy vibration are the same thing perceived from a different perspective and for this reason, any mental condition that I experience has a relative & contrasting emotional condition, whether I am experiencing it or not.
Being lost, being confused & being frustrated are all negative conditions of my mental perspective and they are also negative conditions of my emotional feelings.
Rational thinking people believe that they are lost confused & frustrated, whereas emotionally sentient people actually feel lost, confused & frustrated.
When confronted with the presenting symptoms of confusion & frustration, do I see them as being caused by the dementia or do I see them as the cause of the dementia?
Do I see the confusion & the frustration as an effect of a mental incapacity or as causing an emotional incompetence?
There are many different ways to look at dementia and many different perspectives from which to observe it, so what determines the rational mental perspective of our medical practitioners to be the right one?
Do emotionally sensitive perceptions have any value for someone living with dementia?
There is an old adage that Two Heads are better than One! However, two rational perspectives are still without one iota of sensitive perception or emotional intelligence.
My emotional intelligence informs me that being lost, being confused & being frustrated are all emotional states of being.
Being asked to rate my emotional feelings on a scale of 1 – 10, where 1 is negatively low and 10 is positively high, I would put feeling lost as 1, feeling confused as 2 and feeling frustrated as 3. On this emotional scale, any score below 5 does not have sufficient emotional power to change my emotional state of being myself.
Being in an emotional state of being that I rate as 5 or lower means that I am thinking negatively. My mental focus is on my negative emotional state of being, therefore both my mental thinking & my emotional feelings are negative.
It is pointless asking someone who is feeling negative to think positively, as they do not have the emotional power to do so.
Thinking & feeling are two contrasting sides of the same duality, so when I am thinking negatively, I feel bad and when I feel bad, I think negatively. Conversely, good positive thoughts allow me to feel positively good and my good feelings allow my positive thoughts to flow.
I cannot be mentally inspired without being emotionally empowered because my inspired thoughts are emotionally empowering.
Could it be that after many years of being uninspired and disempowered; whilst being lost, confused & frustrated with life, that the the sub-conscious mind gives up looking in the memory for answers to life’s problems because it eventually comes to realise that they are not there?
Is it really the memory that gets lost & confused or is it the mind that gets frustrated by getting the same useless answers to the same pointless questions, so it eventually stops asking?
Does the mind shut down its random access memory because it fails to give any direction, clarity or presence?
Being direct, being clear & being present are three very powerful emotional states of being: I rate being direct as 8, being clear as 9 and being present as a 10 on my personal emotional energy scale.
