Recently while trying to meditate on a very important topic… before I knew it I had curled up my Upper Lip. There are three basic reasons we curl our Upper Lip: We do this instinctively when something smells bad. Eeuuw! Next, we curl up our Upper Lip when confused and disoriented and looking for an answer(s), and we curl up our Upper Lip when we feel superior and above the situation or person or situation we have to deal with at the moment.
It is interesting that we lift our eyebrows and forehead skin as we lift our Upper Lip. Before you know it…our whole countenance is lifted up. As it is lifted up we seem to form a superior positional view that looks down at what ever caused us to lift our lip. I have also noted that the head tilts back as the lip goes up. Because our head is tilted back we view the situations through half closed eyes with our chin up and our Lip Up. There are not any poses or positions that are more offensive and detrimental to a person than displaying an Upper Lip.
The Upper Lip is not the Upper Hand…but the absolute opposite. If you have thought of three or four other reasons for raising the Upper Lip you may have Upper Lipitis and need to see a doctor right away or deal with some deep repentance.
I’m headed over to the other side of the Pond and have some Cuban Coffee, Gouda Cheese with Golden Bread, and some Cranberry Walnut Scones hoping that this helps get my Upper Lip uncurled and back in a normal position.
