Worthy Art

The outer world is a tool manifested by consciousness to observe it’s own reflection (self) and projections (art).  The outer world is not the reason for what is reflected but what the consciousness has generated of itself to observe.  It happens in what we could call an organic process where suspended belief is the vessel in which we travel submersed in our creation.

Our thought process has become dedicated to the facts of this outer world leaving us wavering to the illusion of our own projections.  The world is not transformed from the outside.  It is transformed from within and only then can we project this transformation from our observations into our realizations.  This is immediately true with our definitions and agreements to how we set worth and the purposes we have decided for things.  In allowing this immediate transformation we are triggering a cause effect scenario that can only be slowed by our intentional friction.  In time the transformation would be overwhelming for us to currently fathom because we would live in a space without blame for it would be known that the outer world does not create who we are, but we create the outer world and we embrace that personal responsibility with all our being.  This is not to be correct, a concept lacking life and beauty, but to be creators of art worthy of our own observation.

The Transformation of Population Control

Image

It is worthwhile to learn about Edward Bernays, especially if you are reaching for greater self-awareness.  He is the guy who wrote the book on propaganda, literally.  He worked with our government, cigarette companies, and many other entities to transform the way people thought when it came to buying products, ideas, and even values.  He developed his techniques on the structure of his uncle, Sigmund Freud, psychological research and theories.  This is why advertisement appeals to our desires of sex in extreme ways with unrelated products.  The most amazing thing about it is how well it works, even still to today.  Ever since his revolutionary technique was introduced to the masses, the world of consumerism has been kicked into an uncontrollable over drive.  Everybody feels the anxiety of needing more things that we don’t need, even when we are aware that we don’t need it.  It has transformed our sense to believe that is the way to happiness and social acceptance.

That was the first great impact these techniques had, but there is more.

Edward Bernays worked with our government during the cold war.  At that time, the government was trying to figure out what to do about the masses level of fear.  Bernays suggested that their fears could be encouraged and manipulated to have the desired effects.  This is why communism became an exploited fear in the 1950s.  It was used against Guatemala with the help of C.I.A. agent Howard Hunt, and Bernays’ own news company, The Middle American Information Bureau.  Once the people believed Guatemala to be a threatening communistic neighbor, the bombs could drop without internal opposition.

These methods are still being used today.  Our desires and fears are strings that are easily pulled.  I can’t figure out whether it is unrealized by the masses or just accepted as our way of doing business.  Most of my friends are content with being absorbed by television and video games.  When I try to talk to them about things that clearly matter more than staring at flashing pixels, they make condescending remarks and label me as “one of THOSE guys”.  Meanwhile, people are suffering in ways unimaginable due to our ignorance and or apathy.  This is what people mean when they say that many people are not awake or aware.  If you take offense to that, then it means that deep down you know it to be true in yourself, but your constructed identity is defending itself.  Most of us are just a result of manipulation, and that is a hard reality to swallow.

Insight, Outsight and the Art of Perspective Traveling

Image

Step outside of society and the constructed reality that confines us.  We can not see what we are inside of until we step outside of it.

A micro organism can not see if it’s environment is just a part of another larger organism by looking outward from within.  By perspective, it is nearly impossible to do so.  As humans, we have the same problem while we look out to space for answers.  The good news is; that is outsight and the limitations that apply to outsight do not have to apply to insight.  We can travel through empathy in order to gain new perspective and new insights.  Not only can we see through other known perspectives, but we can even see through unknown perspectives to some degree.  For example: We can imagine how we would perceive our world as if we were not from here.  All of the things which are normalized to us become fresh to our perception and we see, not as a citizen or member of society, but as a conscious being.

We have been inside, gainfully employed, educated and groomed since birth to be a part of this way of life.  Everything we perceive is through the lenses of our inherited perspective.  Everything perceivable reinforces and affirms this reality.  As long as our perspective is inside this bubble, it will be all that we know and we will be completely dependent on the managers to provide us with virtually everything we consume and believe in order to maintain this bubble of reality.  Our logic will be based on protecting this bubble and we will not empathize with any perspective that would potentially threaten it.

Understanding this difference in perspective allows us to gain awareness of our options and a truer sense of freedom.  In realizing that it has been a choice all along to maintain and support a constructed reality, we find many moral implications to the choices we have unknowingly made inside the bubble.  We may now truly see the logic in self empowerment and the confinement and moral repercussions of dependency.  

In conclusion; our outsight is limited by our physical senses and capabilities while our insight is limited only by our own personal will power and empathy.  Using empathy we can step outside of any situation we may find ourselves in so that we can see ourselves from an objective perspective which is not wagering on anything, but only receiving clear unconditioned awareness.

What Pain?

The pain of awareness is only as strong as the desire to reject it.
