When it comes to reducing pressure on our nervous systems/vessels, WE are most instrumental.

Each individual has a basic reaction to ALL the things being taken in by our senses, whether biologically/socially programmed, or chosen.

The basic reaction is colored by the filters through which we perceive the data that our nervous systems are interpreting. 

Frustration is a human emotion that many of us (if not all of us -Allovus-) can admit to experiencing...sometimes daily...multiple times a day. 

That "frustration" translates to an elevated heart rate, increased blood pressure, and increased muscle tension--preparing the body for battle or flight. 

Consciously working at reducing our frustration is key to reducing unnecessary pressure on our nervous systems. 

I say unnecessary, because often enough, it is our human tendencies that cause the frustration; and then, with a nervous system elevated to "caution" mode, may potentially perceive attack from/lash out at any surrounding vessel--and most likely that which it is emotionally closest to (perhaps because of comfort).

It can be so easy to attack the ones we love--we are comfortable enough to express our bile; perhaps because we assume that we will be forgiven, because there is love binding the two vessels. We attack the members of our fleet second...

We attack ourselves, first. 

That is the essence of "frustration"-- it is one's attack against one's own vessel...self-punishment for what are mostly human tendencies: thoughtless actions/reactions/responses that express the bio/socio program, that render frustration. 

Whether it's with our own human behaviors, or those of others--the "frustration with others for X behavior" is a human tendency, that we get frustrated with ourselves for expressing about others--it's uncomfortable. It doesn't feel good.

The "Navigator consciousness" is irritated with the "unconscious vessel", for expressing human tendencies...and stimulates it's own "caution/danger/crisis" mode, thus making it more susceptible to perceived attack/need to defend/lash out. 

Frustration with self is a human tendency.


We acknowledge that we have human tendencies that frustrate us. So, let's work with that.

Frustration is a red flag that is bringing our attention to something that we want to change, WITHIN OURSELVES.

What goes on outside of our personal spheres cannot be changed as easily as we can change ourselves, IF we CHOOSE to change.

Once the choice to change is made, we recognize and acknowledge Frustration as our friend; it is a tool that brings our awareness to that which we need to shift or release.

Certain perceptions/how we interpret the data taken in by our nervous systems DO NOT serve the vessel--by setting off a false alarm, that makes us more susceptible to reacting from Protective mode (and unintentionally hurting surrounding vessels).

Recognizing the perceptions that needs to shift, because they cause discomfort within the vessel, helps us decide what needs to change within ourselves; and how we need to change.  

Choose an action plan. 

"Instead of X, I'm going to CHOOSE to do Z."

Maybe come up with a few different options of what to do/how to respond when "X" pops up...noted by Frustration.

Acknowledge that we might stumble a few times, back into the same behavioral pattern--recognize that's a part of the process of learning anything new.


And keep on recognizing that which needs to shift, within ourselves, when it comes up.

We may notice less and less frustration with each passing day of conscious practice.

How much did the world within your sphere of contact/affect shift?

How much did the world outside it?

Keep consciously breathing...it may be a challenge when the view is so breathtaking!
