You can see what’s in my head.
I’m still alive.
It’s just my feelings that are dead.
– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 9/28/19 – ✒
We all go through sadness. All of us also face our worries. But have you ever felt nothing? ❔
For me, whenever I feel sad or worried, I embrace these feelings because they’re so pure. You feel them because you care about someone or some important issue. A lot of my best work are fueled by these feelings because they motivate me. 😊
However, there have been a few times in my life where I felt nothing. It’s like you feel numb to anything. That’s the worse place to be in. There’s no energy to push you forward. Fortunately, I’ve developed 71 practices thus far that I use to prevent myself from falling that deep into darkness. If I do fall, I’m able to snap out of it because of these practices. I wrote about a number of my positive practices in my personal blog at http://www.jonriki.com and at Positive Masters’ blog at http://www.positivemasters.com. If they can help you, I would be super happy. ❤
