The system of ‘should’ doesn’t seem to have anyone who’s knowingly in charge. It’s sort of like a mental virus. Choice is power. Should is force and static.
Laws of Attraction is a new pseudo-religion, or so it would seem. Just have your mind be sun-shiny enough and your life will be delirious bliss. Anyone have any luck with that?
No. The “positive” people I know are in bouts of depression half the time. Because they try to change surfaces and keep the same core that led them to try to use the Law of Attraction. Most people think that if they improve their outward thought well enough, they can have their old attitudes and success with the Law of Attraction at the same time. Most, I would wish good luck with that, but my attitudes are not what this is about.
You have two sides to your thinking mind, everyone does. Outward thought, also sometimes called perception, and inward thought, the natural shifts and mechanisms of the mind. All problems you think you have, well… That’s the problem. You think you have problems. You think they exist as external circumstances that you need to overcome with cleverness, strength, or determination. This works sometimes, maybe, but is it very reliable?
It seems we have to not think about the so called problem. As Einstein says you can’t solve something in the same state of mind that created it. Which is the essence of the law of all creativity. It’s the essence of the Law of Attraction. Is it very complicated, really?
No and yes. It can be hard to not see a problem once you’ve got it in your head. Habitual thinking can be quite troublesome, and yet we are encouraged to have routines, fixed attitudes and opinions. Where is the wisdom in this?
It might have been successful for a long time, but has outlived its usefulness. Yes, and actually I feel the need to clarify something. If you perceive yourself to have a problem, that’s not useless. If you don’t embellish this perception, it’s even a very important opportunity, because it points you to the problems cause. Does the world cause you problems? Does the world ever say “Hey you, yes you, … I think you suck and I’m going to cause you a problem.”?
It’s not out to get me? I think it’s something we can all agree on. The world doesn’t play favourites. Not for the good or the bad. The world just works on a cause and effect basis, keeping a balance. It doesn’t seem to be willing to go out of its way to do anything, no?
There is no such thing as bad weather, you just aren’t dressed properly. Yes, the weather is what it needs to be. Your judgement is the problem not the weather. So how do we have any problems, ever?
Our desires get out of alignment with our actions, or vice versa? Neither, but good guess. We have problems because we have been handed a filter. It’s the “best and brightest” view of the “facts”. Our heads are filled with the “wisdom” of the ages, all of it, and well… We create exactly what we have always got. Reality seems very consistent, no? We have been educated in perhaps the finest relics of human thought possible, and we must venerate the relics or risk being called insane at best. Your perception is not “yours”. Anyone feel their perception is theirs? Does the question make sense?
If I choose an opposite perception to everyone else, it‘s still not mine because it’s in opposition? True.
I feel my perception is not solely mine. People and events influence. None of your perception is yours. We have been trained early (and very efficiently) to notices key things and only specific things. We get stuck in that pattern of noticing or scanning, and our world picture is as we expect it to be. This world picture is a lie.
Is perception a set stage then, and you’re just watching the show? That’s right. It’s the stage of the “consensus”, and perhaps the worlds biggest conspiracy.
Who is the set designer, if it’s not you? Nature had a hand in it some, a long time ago, but its wisdom was buried under a lot of “human” thought making the original patterns mostly unnoticeable. We had the potential to direct our perceptual processes all along, but then came what humans call “communication”, and communication is very little about objects and very much about opinions. Every adjective is an opinion. All verbs are opinionated about the event they describe.
You may think you don’t want your problems, but you do. It’s an example of “better the devil you know”. Otherwise, you feel your mind as mutable, and fear you will “lose your mind” which is just losing a perceptual pattern. You can’t actually lose your mind. I promise you don’t have your mind to lose, or you already lost your mind and have nothing to fear.
