This infinity loop is symbolic of several things besides Infinity. For one, that time is an illusion - there is no linear format to it; we sense past and future only because we grow and decay and die. In the process of doing so, we experience many things, and we seem to spend a lot of our time preparing for things we have no idea are going to happen until they are upon us and happening. This suggests we're not as blind to retrocausality as our innocent brains would like us to think, and that somewhere in the heart, which incidentally has neurons of its own, we know more than we think we know.
Until relatively recently, I wasn't one for Facebook, until a swerve in my personal trajectory put paid to my previous sense of anathema. In scrolling down the posts of groups which some might say I'm quite attached to, many souls are tearing themselves apart in searching for ways to find balance. Now, don't get me wrong - I've been there, heart on the floor, no idea how to pick it up cos bits of it are scattered all over my world-line in places I didn't think of looking. But that was then, and this is now, and now I've got a better idea of what it takes to attain balance, and most of the time at least, to hold on to it. Understanding entanglement helps. As does non-locality. Some say they are two sides of the same coin.
All kinds of relationships test our temerity in many different ways. Advisors post advice on social media about what we should or shouldn't put up with, according to their judgement of a situation they know nothing about. This is like being on The Chase, saying, "Go for the higher offer," and copping out when it comes to your turn. If you could exchange life with someone else you might make different decisions, but you'd still be faced with choices that seemed wrong or right to make. Social media has its place, and I like being in the communities I choose to align with because it's interesting and grants a sense of perspective on what's happening across the bigger picture. But it's not Mecca, and my own heart will tell me, at the end of the day, what to do when confronted with what's to be done.
The heart will call upon you to resist judgement, and when you do, there's a sense of release. Instinct will say there are two sides to every coin, and that means a hidden positive where a negative stares you in the face. Deep down, you know that kindness outweighs coldness, a benchmark steering towards favourable feelings. When I'm kind in the face of challenges which could easily trigger negativity, I end up having a better day than I would if I rise to the bait. Balance in the self, no matter what you're facing, comes from trusting the principles that align with best intent. And while at times this is a hard place to reach, following your heart will get you there in the end. The prime directive is to care whether it does.
