The consensus reality is the lie.
Not only do we try to understand our consciousness out of context, but we actually insist on trying to see it backward and inside out. Does your mind make sense to you, friends?
It often appears to be crazy.
The world doesn’t make sense.
Everything makes sense to me.
I think if things made sense then we wouldn’t be the curious creatures we are. We love mysteries, even if there is no solution, we can make one up.
We try to see our minds as if the truth originates from the top down and from the senses inward, but do the senses originate from themselves?
Top down thinking creates a world where we have to be convinced of the real, and yet we get seriously afraid as the real won’t come to us in a convincing way. This is why fear of change and xenophobia are almost universal. We believe that if we don’t see it, that means it isn’t there. When in fact, we have our eyes because the body needed a broader ability to perceive what was there all on its own. Your eyes don’t make the pictures. The presences made your body make the eyes.
What this all means about the second chakra is that it is aware of this. It’s from the gut that you get the instinct to be quiet and listen, or hold still and watch carefully. Your mind and perception will never be any clearer than that gut feeling guides you to. You aren’t more clever than your gut. Our brain is just louder, and the reason it’s louder is it’s an amplifier for two whole other worlds of awareness.
Are the best leaders good at simply reading their guts? Yes, and the best leaders are least willing to try, because they know that the average person cannot be convinced. They must be shown, and they know how much that takes and what it means to change people like that. The person who is influenced that way is seldom grateful.
I saw in business that the facts could present any argument you wanted. The trick was listening to them with the gut. Yes, and understanding the long term trend of people reverting to their gut awareness if they are women, or their root awareness if they are men. As they say, sex sells. It sells to men because that’s how they think, and it sells to women because that’s how they influence men. Our species is still pretty juvenile.
So yes, trusting your gut. Trusting your gut is putting your embellishments of thought aside. It’s really a good idea. Try it, and I promise you won’t miss them.
I am not telling you not to think, but think from a new context. Ground your thinking in the gut. This is why I seem able to read peoples thoughts. I’m actually doing no such thing. If I have to report the content that forms the noise in your head, I will get hopelessly lost. But my awareness is structured differently, so I look at more primitive things first.
Now take it from that gut level and then explain it with thought only to add footnotes, and you have my model of the world. But you don’t have to paint with my brushes, probably shouldn’t actually. You do have to deal with your own experiences and your own natural inclinations.
I usually say nothing when I’m asked what’s wrong, because I don’t know how to speak the words. And you don’t know, because of how you have been conditioned and trained.
I have been told that I am a genius of psychology. I neither know nor care about the discipline or its systems. I just operate from the origin out, instead of from thinking in.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
