ARE WE MOOD CONTROLLED?
As children grow up we give them a heavy dose of mood variations of at least the father. That decides when to talk, if at all, what to talk in which manner. The same narrative carries on in schools & in professional life. The worlds awaits for your right mood to interact & in the process valuable time is lost and even more, valuable information is not brought to the table. So it be. It has become the norm of human interaction. As an extreme case we have known moody persons, generally negative, with whom we refrain from interacting as much as possible.
People take pride in saying that they work as per their MAAN. This is to say that they are fully controlled by mood swings in their interactions & might be the decision making is also fully controlled by it. What a pity? Human beings are the finest products made by God, known for their rational thinking, behaviour and action. Are we really rational when the reality is dictated otherwise. Are we able to digest a different point of view or decision, contrary to our thinking or our presumed benefit or it just triggers us into a bad mood.
If rational thinking, interactions & decision making was the order of the day for most of us, would the real world be different. This reflection would help us change our mood emanated life. Would it have taken away most of the stress of our lives? The make believe moods created by hidden agendas of individuals makes our existence even more complex. Psychologists have lots to say about mood in a straitjacket matrix, is it our true reflection or is there more to it.
A rational ecosystem is what we are desirous of for human happiness & fulfilment, devoid of which, all theories of psychology & management would remain paper texts. Not denying moods can & will change in case of serious life experiences, the effort for a better living, existence, excel and grow individuals, we have to trained to be mood agnostic to the maximum possible extent. It can only be done by continuous training and practice. This would be the real yoga of times. It would be a life of sanity.
MOOD AGNOSTIC FRAME OF MIND IS THE MIRAGE WE ASPIRE OF.
