All my previous blogs seem to be about freeing ourselves from human conscious encumbrances and limitations, with this in mind, I've titled this blog simply Freedom. Philosophy and spirituality are my main fortitudes to freeing ourselves from our own bondages.

But Another Fear Based Existence!!
by Mathew Naismith
have been busy communicating with a number of different people again. I often
get out of my comfort zone like this, which of course makes me even more
appreciative of my comfort zone. This also allows me to observe different views
and actions, my own views and actions are a little mundane at times to me.
following is an interesting reply I received on the discussion of being overly
positive. I am also going to insert links to other sources that explain why
positive thinking is not all it's cracked up to be, they are certainly worth
browsing through in my mind.
is a difference between living with rose coloured glasses in order to avoid
looking at the hard stuff...like ourselves, and finding balance enough that we
can distance ourselves and not get pulled into drama, including our own. We do
need to acknowledge those aspects of self, allow ourselves to feel those
emotions we like to avoid, before we are able to release them.
We do need to acknowledge these negative
aspects and in the process neutralize them. Having fear of negativity, ego and
judgment, is not neutralizing anything, it is running way from them.
When it gets to a stage when balance
views become negative, I think this is taking positive thinking way too far. To
this excess (extreme) is when positive thinking becomes destructive and highly
judgmental in my mind.
Honestly, it's all based on fear, I
thought we were supposed to distance ourselves from fear based existences, not
just create yet another slightly different fear based existence than what we
are experiencing at present!!
Take my dreams for instance; they have
at times been quite traumatic. If I did not face these horrid negatives face
on, I would be still in fear of them. The world around us is like our dreams,
face what is going on and neutralise them, do not just judge them as negative
and ignore them.
In all, if we want to create another
fear based existence, we are going the right way about it. Fancy having fear in
talking about the atrocities in the world in fear of being negative. Observe
what is truly going on but at the same time avoid being a participator as much
not get this mentality, more is better especially if it is positive, when is
enough not enough? Take Donald Trump for instance, he will never obtain enough
power and money to serve his desires like any multinational, these people are
on a treadmill they are unable or unwilling to get off. To these people, it is
exceptionally positive to keep trying to obtain more money and power; there
will never be enough, is this any different to positive thinking? To be honest,
of course it is not because if a bit is beneficial, more has to be even more
beneficial and on and on it goes.
As people like Donald Trump obviously fear being poor and powerless, spiritually
positive people obviously also fear negatives, so more of a good thing as being
positive has to be more beneficial!!
we start limiting our own consciousness to fears and the attachments to more
has to be better, all we will create is more of the same, albeit in a different
it is predicted that man's consciousness will evolve into a more loving caring
consciousness, however, this will occur naturally void of fearing so called
negatives of the world. I could not stress to my readers more, please do not be
drawn into an existence that is still based on fear and lies, especially if it
feels all worm and fluffy. Yes, by all means take in this love and oneness but
please don't do this in ignorance of our present condition. My advice is to not
look at negatives as being negative or positives as being positive, and please
don't get to a point where balance is just seen as negative.
stated to certain people recently, "The only thing balance is limiting of
is extremes. The reason for this lies in that extremes are highly limiting.
Balance has no true limitations accept to these limitations, makes perfect
sense to me."
yourself of this fear and never get into an existence based on any kind of fear
of who we are at present, this also means not fearing being limited either!!
Extract: It turns out there’s some science behind
my feelings: A look at the research reveals positive thinking isn’t always all
it’s cracked up to be. In fact, researchers are asking: What if embracing
so-called “negative” states like failure, pessimism, insecurity, and
uncertainty actually has a positive outcome?
