Day 222 - Fear, Desire, and Consequence
I saw a video of a man playing guitar on the street. The strangest things can at times show us something profound within ourselves – the key is that we must have placed ourselves in a position to be able to see it. If we have allowed ourselves to be blinded to our true self (by emotions, feelings, and ideas such as - guilt, shame, judgment, blame, regret, and anger etc.) we will not see who we really are when opportunities present themselves here... we will not have profound realizations, and we will not grow to our fullest potential, because we are literally constricted, choked, and smothered out by the belief that these emotions, feelings, and ideas are “Who We Are”.
This 'Belief' then creates a Fear, the Fear that if we were to give up our feelings/emotions/ideas about ourselves, we would be completely miserable, and so just want to die!! So because we fear losing our belief of “Who We Are” - We try to hide that realization from ourselves by creating, accepting, and allowing another Belief in/as the Justification that “We are Powerless to Change!... But really, it's a simple case of Fear, based solely on a past indoctrination, upbringing, and memories which are all formulated, biased, passed-down, second-hand opinions and therefore merely recycled false-assumptions.
The fear then goes unchallenged, because this is apparently the 'Very Scary' and 'Untouchable' God of the mind, which is simply the system as knowledge and information. This system wants you to remain enslaved to fear forever, because if you are enslaved to fear, you are enslaved to the system.
Out of these false assumptions and beliefs, we then develop a desire, which is actually an advanced state of fear, where we have so earnestly sought an escape from all the negative feelings of abuse, suppression, and self-denial, that we think an energetic high as a personal experience will make us feel better and everything will be OK again!? Not So. We actually amplify and create more fear (as desire) in order that we may give ourselves more excitement within the mind as energetic delusions and temporary highs – which only serve to create more consequence in waiting.
Nonetheless, we remain addicted to our energetic mind-games. We nurture the desire to feel better about ourselves at the expense of others. This despite the consequence, which we cannot grasp as the extreme limitation of the mind as consciousness. We claim to not understand how it works... another clever justification to the extent that we actually create the idea that we can simply turn a blind eye to all the suffering in the world and believe that we are separate from it,... “So glad I will never have to face that situation/problem”. “Its in a different area of the world, so I can just forget about it and pretend that it is not really happening”... “Everyone over there deserves it anyway”.
That is the lie. The reality is that we can change, and we all have the power to direct ourselves and change into what is Best for All. Most simply prefer to use any given random excuse to justify why they do not wish to change. For example, the other day I heard the following excuse when I suggested to someone that they could support Equality. “I/We can't”... “It's too big”. Will that excuse fly when you die and face yourself? You didn't want to be honest with yourself because... it's too big? What would assist one more would be to say “I don't want to change because I don't want to give up my comforts and self-enjoyments”, that way perhaps would make it easier to see your own selfishness, and then perhaps assist yourself to change, to give as you would like to receive.
The only real joy is in Self Honesty.
