Great advice, things like maintaining a positive aspects journal, and digging deeper into feelings behind complaining.
Of course, our complaints are mostly correct. No denying that. We are intelligent, sentient beings.
But those deeper emotions beneath our complaints. Is there a deeper layer underneath our complaints? This deeper layer can be our general perspective. Much like climate is the deeper layer of our environment, and today's weather is the upper layer.
So what is our internal climate? And what is our internal weather today?
Are all our complaints correct? Or do some of our complaints hide something else? Can our emotions manipulate our judgement? Can a morbid situation be seen in a different light? Is everything morbid, or is it our mood that is morbid? Is our mood morbid because of unresolved events, or is our mood morbid as a general condition that has developed over a lifetime?
Are there any real issues that we are not focused on?
Did we come into this world with resolved emotions?
Was there any moment in our life, even brief, in which our emotions felt fully resolved? How long did it last?
Have we ever met anyone who's emotions are fully resolved? [Disciplined emotions are different from resolved emotions.]
Assume that our emotions are fully resolved one fine morning, by divine intervention. What happens next?
