Reverse the Effect

Image

How do you reverse the effects of deliberate mind conditioning? It is a process that is never complete. I am still working on my own. The first step is realizing the extent of the conditioning. Your ego and constructed identity will fight this process to protect the structure it created. You can temper the ego and identity by reminding it that it is not under attack, it is just getting some renovation. At the same time, be aware of what makes you offended and what actions you find yourself justifying. The ego can reveal parts of the structure that were built on false truths that require justifications to keep it together. Put away the justifications and watch how easily that part of the structure falls away. Now you have a clean slate to rebuild with greater awareness than you originally had. Repeat this process everyday in all aspects of your life no matter how big or small. You will only get better at this process so long as you are self reliant with courageous honesty.

Choice and Result

Free will is the ability/responsibility to choose.  It is not something that we have or have not, but something that is always there to varying degrees.  Choices are realized through awareness.  These choices are enabled or hindered by situational variables.  These situational variables are very much a product of choices made in the past.  The variable that determines the choices made is self awareness.  This is because most of what we choose is based on who we believe ourselves to be.  Think; “what would I do in any given situation” and you will see that it depends on who you understand yourself to be.  Therefore, it matters less to the well being of the situation, how many choices you have to choose from, than it does the ability to discern between those choices.  Focusing on self awareness seems to be the optimal way to bring about a collective existence which is capable of making better choices than our current model.

This process of awareness – self awareness – choice – result is much the same as a computer application that is designed to process data.  The application will become aware of the data, whatever the data may be, and process that data based on the programming of the application.  After the data has been processed, it will then become aware of the result of the processed data and continue the cycle.  One major difference between us and a computer application is that with ourselves, we can upgrade the application, as the application, with self awareness.  The problem is that our current applications are so busy and overwhelmed with processing corrupt data that it tries to upgrade and change the data to fit the application, which is backwards.  We must put our efforts into upgrading our application rather than blaming the current data which is a result of how the application has processed that data previously.

First there is a degree of awareness to the situation.  This awareness brings potential choices.  No choice is cared to be made until there is a degree of self awareness.  Then the choice is made which generates a result.  We become aware of this result and based on who we are, we make more choices which generate more results to be aware of.  If we are dissatisfied with the results, we must look within ourselves for the solution.

Awareness:  I see

Self Awareness:  I am

Choice:  I choose

Result:  I experience

You are not your mind or your body

So many great people have walked this earth and left profound and highly relevant messages.  So many small minded people look at these messages as delusional.  They believe life and reality is found in modern culture and government… though they won’t verbally admit it, their choices speak volumes.  You are not a citizen, you are a human.  You do not require regulation, you ask for it.  You are in control of your body and mind, which means you are neither… can you feel it?  Or do you fear it?
