Our only option is choice

I still hear people arguing that we are just physically responding to stimuli and we have no real choice of what we do.

I know this is not true because of what I experience, despite what I have been told.

For example;

We have Australian Shepherds in this place I have come to call home.  About three months ago one of them, Zoe, had puppies.  My daughter got a little bit too close to her face and Zoe snapped at her and drew blood on her lip.  I picked up my daughter and carried her away from Zoe and toward the bathroom to clean her up.  As we ventured down the hallway I felt this horrible rage build up inside of me.  The energy of it was incredibly strong and I was perplexed that what I felt was contradicting to what I thought and chose to do.  I realize that there were many other stimuli I was feeling at the moment, probably too many to even calculate, but the rage was definitely the dominant stimulus.  It is a good thing that the majority rule did not apply in this case, as the majority was screaming for war.  Reacting to stimuli would have brought the story to a different ending.  We feel things for reasons but we should not be a victim to everything we feel as we learn to be conscious of our choices.

This is not saying that we should always go against what we feel.  It is saying that we feel many things and we are interpreting many different stimuli at any given moment.  This leads me to realize that our only option is choice in light of all the variables.  This realization requires me to feel responsible for my actions as well, which we know we should be.

Attachment Pain

Mental pain is often caused when being forced to detach from an expectation.
It is our own attachment to our own expectations that hurt us more than what’s external.

Medication for the Collective Psyche

Sometimes i think we already know what is going to happen, we just don’t admit it.

When considering the many states, regions, and internal conflicts of an individual mind, and considering what is self inflicted, we can see that the same applies on a collective scale and that we are collectively self inflicting this process by what we allow, nourish, believe, follow, support, etc., just the same way it happens internally with an individual.  The mind has many facets, all with purpose but it is the collective appropriation of all facets, whether perceived as good or bad that will create a healthy collective psyche.  We can enforce all the laws we want, but it is like psychiatric medication, it will do more harm than good on a potentially healthy mind.  The real law is what we mirror and reflect to each other, just like mirror neurons, which shows us where the true power lies. 

The problem we face right now is that we are dependent on enforced laws/psychiatric medication to regulate our collective psyche to operate how we see fit.  We do not believe in ourselves.  We do not believe that we could become capable of becoming non-dependent.  This is addiction and it is extremely hard to overcome.

The more I exis…

The more I exist as myself

The more I effect existence

I am Power

I looked up at the stars and told them with pure honesty;

I am a variable here.  I can only produce a result, which means I am powerful.

They agreed and thanked me for listening, and I thanked them for speaking.

I do not projec…

I do not project knowledge to teach

I project it to learn from what is reflected back to me

Knowledge is like a story; the only real truth in a story is the result that it creates.

With the right …

With the right application

everything becomes beneficial.

Humility is strength
Arrogance is weakness

Feeling is believing

When telling people how amazing they truly are, they will pretend to believe you. This is because hearing is not believing and neither is seeing. Believing is feeling and everything else is a means to get there.

Your power as a variable

We interpret the world with little responsibility for the collective agreement of the relative truth; “this is just the way it is”.  Some truths will operate as results because it is being perceived by variables.  These variables will naturally create agreements for concepts not well understood that will become their truth.  For example; tell me what time it is, and I want the truth.  For it to be correct, we will have to come to an agreement.  For it to be true, we would have to first be asking the right questions. 

Right now it is 11:00 AM here in Atlanta, GA.  There is nothing I can do to change that by myself.  If I try to change it by myself I will be late or early for every place I must be.  Though, during daylight savings we agree to change the time and it effects the result of our reality.
We are the variables and we experience our results. There is great power in that.
