1. When I’m in the forest and at peace, it’s easier for me to go with the flow and remain positive. But when I’m in the city, or around a lot of negative energy, I see far more darkness and respond in turn with darkness. So I guess I fail to control my reaction to that which astounds me, shakes my soul, and makes me feel like I’ve fallen into some horrible alternative reality because people can’t actually behave this way toward each other, can they? No, not possible… Yes, my control over certain reactions either doesn’t exist or is as unbroken as a wild horse. And I wonder if maybe, sometimes, that’s for the best. Not that your post is about nonchalance. It’s more trying to get some of that negative to become a useful motivation to create of positive.
