A place for anything that doesn't fit into the existing forums
in a way, excitement and fear are the two sides of the same thing, while this thread is about excitement, but I can sense the fear between the lines (fear that life becomes no fun, how dreadful that is).So as excitement & fear decrease, contentment increases?
When the excitement and fear are much weakened, many weak subtle signals come out. your awareness expands into completely new territory. Here is another example. I had some dull pain on my hip joint, I never knew how I got it, was a nerve damaged? was that caused by an internal infection? but it hurt every day for several months. One day, I noticed that when I sit in one posture, there was a very faint pain in that hip joint. A thought flash through my mind "I found the cause of the pain, and probably that pain can be cured". Indeed, within a few weeks, the pain was gone. I did not do anything, I did not even pay attention to my body posture. Without the strong polarity of fear & excitement, our eyes are suddenly open, and our awareness expand, and intelligence can flow more freely and automatically take care of many things.
