It’s 1.59am on a weekday, and I am on the wrong bed. (I ought to be in camp but I’m at home)
I stopped writing because I was in the process of constructing my belief on the sacredness of our opinions and expressions – that they deserved to be lived than to be short-changed by writing them in a blog entry. We owe it to ourselves to maintain the integrity of our pure opinions and ideas, and to not allow taint by the opinions of others – especially when you know not what the true value of your mind is, and of what you are.
I’m not sure how I ended up on this blog again, but while I’ve been browsing the internet in the past hour, it’s occurred to me that most of life’s beautiful things (and I am deeply, passionately in love with life) are often expressed in the most simplest and subtlest form, and sometimes real form may be formed from a series of interconnected moments. But really, I think I am only writing because I’ve missed it.
I also have a confession to make – I’ve recently (really recently, like 3 days ago – because of a friend) been listening to a repetitive bunch of korean music. There’s a particularly elevating emotion that fills me up while listening to the various few pieces of music, and I’ll inject one right here. I suggest you play it while reading ~
Right, back to writing then.
I want to write again because frankly speaking, it was because of writing that I had begun to seek some of the most amazing books in my life. I’ve about 80~ books now – each of them personally selected for specific reasons, and I am where I am as a result of choice. Writing has kept me driven to keep reading, and I’ve realized how much lesser I’ve been reading since I stopped blogging. Limiting belief? It probably is.
I’m blogging now again as a package I’ve designed for myself to keep me moving forward more.
So as an opening topic, today’s post is about the new boundaries I’ve pushed myself into. This is a general outline of ALL that I’ve been working on in the past 3 months. There’s been tremendous growth, yo.
“William H. Whyte, Jr coined the term in March 1952, in Fortune magazine: Groupthink being a coinage — and, admittedly, a loaded one — a working definition is in order. We are not talking about mere instinctive conformity — it is, after all, a perennial failing of mankind. What we are talking about is a rationalized conformity — an open, articulate philosophy which holds that group values are not only expedient but right and good as well.” – Wikipedia definition
One of the things I’ve strongly been working on is the group-think phenomena, social conditioning, and understanding the filters that run through society. Human beings are mentally lazy. We want to save time and energy in all that we do – it’s a rule of life. As a result of group-think, we now live in a society of.. well I won’t coin a definition to it.. you know what it’s like. We always know what’s better for us, always. Yet, despite our intelligence, shit happens. Why? Group-think. We knew that the banks and the U.S government were taking the country in a bad direction, yet we still went with it despite the fact that we knew. We always know.
I’ve been working on how to overcome this and to be able to help people center their emotions and core confidence from within, from self-value – which leads me to primordial intelligence.
– Primordial Intelligence
Eckhart Tolle’s work has helped me understood the form of primordial intelligence – a core intelligence within the working mind which is free from any dysfunction and just purely.. intelligence. I don’t see myself as someone highly intelligent, but most of the time, when I’ve had highly intelligent answers or ways or solutions, I’ve noticed that it always stems from within. The ‘within’ is simply the detachment of our ‘self’ from our ‘mind’.
So I’ve been trying to figure this out – if there is primordial intelligence in everyone, how do you make everyone be in control of it? Sure, everyone’s had a glimpse of moment where they’re just highly intelligent but it’s all just by chance. Is everyone then equally intelligent? Does knowing yourself allow you to tap into this intelligence (which can be used for anything)?
Later I learned that it’s not exactly primordial intelligence, but simply living out of your mind. I was simply able to see my mind as a tool instead of being caught up in that intellectual thought with no control of anything else. And this control, this understanding that you are not your mind has allowed my mind to be used to it’s fullest potential.
Anyway, this is getting dry and I think I’m starting to get boring. So here’s more stuff I’ve been working on, in bullet point:
– Clarity of Intention (social skill)
– Freedom from Outcome (social skill)
– Habitual expression (Do-it-for-me)
– Humans are mentally lazy
– Theory of Evolution and how our traditions and traits come to form
– Reticular Activating System (social/belief) – will blog about this sometime, it’s amazing: what you believe you are entitled to is all you’re ever going to get – and how to change it. Aligns with ‘The Secret’ and the mindset of all the masters of their own area.
– Limiting Belief
– Success with Women (not kidding)
– Eastern Philosophy, religion and the Bible (King James and NIV)
– The Ascent of Humanity (technology and culture)
– The age of Separation (human philosophy)
– Proof not Promises – how the mind will promise you how things are going to turn out (social conditioning, environment) and how to go against it and prove it otherwise
– T.S Elliot literature
– Picking up girls
– Music Therapy
– Emotions, passion, what drives us, how to have it permanently, etc.
– Forcing our way into our art
For now, that’s all I can recall up to this point. Now to wrap it all up.
The list of things I’ve been working on basically drives down to: live your life, do what you want, and get what you want – all achievable by simply knowing yourself. Human beings are naturally beautiful and attractive. The ‘self’ is the core of our capabilities to feel: love, compassion, kindness. And knowing yourself simply makes you, you. It really is working towards the most perfect form of our imperfect self.
