The discomfort of being comfortable

Human nature is such that seemingly it is never satisfied yet it is satisfaction and fulfilment we seek. Granted, often in wrong places we look for things to make us feel ‘comfortable’. That is unconscious avoidance and most of the time we all have elements

of unconscious avoidance in our quest for comfort. We’ve all been there.

When awareness is applied eventually or finally, it seems we realise the degree of our discomfort and seek ways to become comfortable on what appears real way. Getting ‘comfortable’ in a conscious way links to doing what we love without applying any damage to ourselves or others. It’s got to benefit the overall life we lead. But what happens when we have done that?

I experienced it this year when I sat in a space of ‘I’ve done it’ what else is there? I slowly after a period of awareness of what true comfort is began to waver seeking way to disrupt that feeling, again consciously and unconscious elements started popping up. Dissociating from where I am, seeking tasks I haven’t really wanted to do and what it brought is a realisation of that human nature factor that we need a degree of discomfort to know we are comfortable. It is ebb and flow of life, ups and downs that are needed to know right from wrong and dark from light. The overarching lesson is acceptance of what is here and now and not seeking to escape purposefully into either comfort or discomfort and allowing whatever comes arrive at our door.
