Sadness Defined: Body Consciousness
Excerpt from Bart’s upcoming book, Body Consciousness
Sadness generally occurs from the message, you cannot be the person you would like to become. Even in the perspective of a parent not being loving to a child, resulting in the creation of sadness, the child wishes to be an expression of love to the parent.
Sadness is a contracted energy, where it is held in the body wants to exists in a sluggish, lifeless state. Sadness is the opposite of movement, as loss of something wants to remain still so the feeling can process out. However, for most, this is a very uncomfortable sensation, staying still with the feeling of loss; for many it is the most uncomfortable feeling.
The power of sadness is the desire to create utopia, to live in a higher ideal. This person strives to build something much greater where their sadness is finally fulfilled.
