Inspire And Get Inspired

Each source of hearing and vision stimulates our subconcious and some are so deep or intense that influence us in our conscious state by promoting changes in language behaviour; habits behaviour; emotional and psychological behaviour.

For some of us, a negative stimulation might have a greater impact than positive ones. For instance, when we approach someone who responds to us out of rage or rudeness, it might cause us to lose the tranquility we had before (which not necessarily happens instantaneously, nervousness can be stocked within building itself up over time until it can no longer be contained) and stimulate us to act or desire to act the same way,  it´s as if "if you cannot beat the enemy, join them" and the enemy is not the person but the fruit of emotion that led the person to present such behaviour.

Yet the same length of stimulation or inspiration is not always present when we find situations (weather from our reality or not) that send out positive inspirations.

Perhaps, it´s because the negative stimulations tend to stick more into our conscience. Whereas, the positive ones are enjoyed and appreciated on one hand but on the other hand vanish from our minds almost instantaneously. Thus, we don´t mentally spend time over them as we do over negative stimulations.

For negative stimulations to influence us, they need us to not understand their nature and how they work to get control of us and once in control of us because they increase their manipulative power according to the level of void in perception and understanding we have of them.

On the other hand, positive inspirations increase as we extend our perception and understanding. The less perception and knowledge we have about positive sources of inspiration, the more likely doubts will emerge to trick us into not allow ourselves to get positively inspired as much as we can. Therefore, since negative inspirations need our voidness in understanding, they use manipulative mechanisms to trick us in order to survive and develop within us. Whereas positive inspirations need our understanding to flourish and ramificate.

Our knowledge decreases the effects and efficiency of the negative stimulations we encounter, we maintain tranquility (not only in behaviour but mentally, since repressed negative emotions cause extreme damage) and are able to act the opposed way... If encounter rudness, we give kindness; if encounter selfishness, we give empathy; if encounter rage, we give serenity and so on.

The more understanding, the more we see the great powers of triumph of positive fruits, not just for preserving our well-being but also inspiring others to calm down if they´re in rage; to consider others next time instead of turning away; to be polite to others despite their afflicting problems and so on.

This way, we build a positive web that reaches beyond our personnal linkages and encounters, and increase the chance of diminishing surrounding negative stimulations for ourselves and for others.

This understanding exists when we not only perceive the obvious effects of negative and positive attitudes (in form of action, thought or emotion) but also allow ourselves to extend our perception to understand not only the outcome of being inspired positively or negatively but also the connections that such inspirations make inside us.

Since one negative or positive emotion or state of being is always linked to another... Anxiety - Nervousness; Worry - Fear; Anger - Apathy; Love - Peace; Patience - Calmness; Generosity - Kindness and so on. Connections which determine the outcome of situations and the outcome of our mental health by the time the situations are over.

Based on such understanding, we manage to turn situations around, from negative to positive, perhaps not always entirely but in a way that we don´t get emotionally damaged and not add more fuel to the fire that burn us all.

The world around us teach a lot of bad things but there´s a lot of good lessons to learn from it as well, it´s up to us to perceive them and not let them escape and vanish from our minds.

A positive inspiration by something we see, think, read or hear can help us gather a level and extension of knowledge we couldn´t imagine possible before and by now if you ask yourself how, perhaps you should consider contrasting the opposite sides:

For instance, if you saw an act of kindness, imagine that the person acted based on anger or rudeness, such attitude could only be generated by a damaged emotional state but with kindness the person put themselves above their afflicting problem and did not get negatively inspired. Thus did not inspire the negative as well. This is the real strength, when we are capable of such accomplishment.

We all have such capability but we have to believe and persevere with knowledge and practice because only one or the other favors contractions about what we want/need and what we actually do.

Behind attitudes, there´s a world of webs of emotions and thoughts that interconnect with each other to determine outcomes.

It´s essential to understand such connections within ourselves and be conscious of the good ones and their benefits and the bad ones and their damaging effects and tricks, because on contrary to chemistry of inorganic substances, negative emotions and thoughts attract more negative as the positive ones attract more positive. However, when we have self-control and knowledge to see how negative emotions and thoughts trick us into cultivating them, we´re even able to get positively inspired by surrounding negative stimulations, because by understanding what generated it in a person or persons, we protect ourselves from having the same or worst happen to us... We don´t absorb the negative stimulations but cultivate and send out positive inspirations generated by ourselves by our own internal reasons.

So let yourself know the internal corners of your being, get inspired by your own and other´s positive attitudes but also positively inspired by the negative ones. Knowledge will pave the way but you have to walk or inertia will hold you in frustration from reaching your true potential.

Inspire And Get Inspired !!!

Transcendence Over Denial

For Reflection: 

It is more convenient to treat symptoms than to treat actual causes and when symptoms are minor, they are easily ignored.

The body reveals symptoms from our biological system
as attitudes reveal symptoms from our mental state.

As minor physical symptoms can reveal great problems, 
so does minor non-good attitudes reveal great threats, threats against our own well-being.

Apathy: The action of indifference towards someone else's pain, hardship or misleading. If the heart is uncapable of feeling for someone (anyone, including strangers), it doesn't feel remorse when it generates an attitude hurtful to others.

Apathy is a doorway to lying, by lying we use each other and the gains of it bring denial as an attempt to comfort the mind. 

Using: Lifeless objects are made for using, not beings of life. Yet we've been engaging in friendships, relationships and businesses in which benefits are not intended to be mutual or close to mutual but only to get us to receive more and give less, to feel superior and others inferior, to control relations not by essence of the heart but by convenient strategies that unable us to use others to achieve some kind of success.

The usage of words from doubt and falseness to affirm something to generate gains is a tool of convincing others of non-existent Love, Care and Sincerity.

When we deprive others of such fruits by giving them the impression they exist, we also deprive ourselves of living what we receive to the full potential, in a deeper and purer sense. In which, there's no conflict between what's concealed in our hearts and what we receive from the outside.

That being said, no matter how great amount of wonderful things we receive by using others and lying to them, it does not promote well-being and the first principle of happiness is well-being, regardless of any aspect of believe (religious or scientific) or style of life.

Perhaps the modern man's dissatisfaction comes from this whole world of non-existant aspects promoted to create a better reality, perhaps that's why relationships are easily broken and friendships easily dismantled. 

Lying: It has become an almost daily activity and serves several purposes, life's circumstances usually are seen as what pushes us to it, so we can: take advantange on someone; help hide someone's mistake; get better grades by cheating; convince someone we did something we didn't; convince someone we didn't do something we did. All this in order to escape problems or avoid some sort of uncomfortable situation but how can we feel comfortable if our mind is deceived as well ? 

It is deceived because although we know our untruthful acts, we manipulate our mind to look at the gains and ignore the means by which they were obtained, even if it's composed of the suffering and misleading of others.

Nevertheless, our denial of the bad seeds we plant and bad fruits we spread, in the end we know that our achievements are based on lies and pain we generate in others by the consequences of our dishonesty.

Remember ! Nobody heals by hurting others; Nobody becomes strong by diminishing others; Nobody is truly happy by inflicting pain in someone else's heart. Remember !

When we lie to others, we also lie to ourselves and whatever advantange is gained, minor or major, it is the product of a non-existant reality. Thus if something doesn't exist, it cannot contribute to our well-being 
But lying is a beast of many heads. Hence denial is born.

Denial: It's a convenient tool to avoid facing what makes us dissapointed and ashamed of ourselves. The usage of denial twists our perception of reality. It makes us believe that admitting flaws and mistakes diminishes us when in fact what really diminishes us is not acknowledging them.

By denying our bad attitudes, we condition ourselves to move towards an unstable and weak mental/emotional state. This happens so because we don't allow ourselves to face our own conciousness about the things we've done. In this case, everytime we do something dishonest, we accumulate denial and in turn accumulate weakness.

Those who don't fight, don't get strong !
This is the basic principle why denial instead of strengthening us, weakens us.

With time, the fear of facing our own conciousness drives us away from even perceiving dishonest attitudes as bad and so we become almost machanized to fill up desiring voids no matter what needs to be done and when we have no consideration for other people's feelings and life situation they are found in, we end up damaging and ruining them for benefits for ourselves.

Benefits which although stimulate more denial by making it easier to do so, also brings the constant feeling of dissatisfaction because denial can hide what we don't wanna face but cannot erase it.

When we toss aside peace of spirit, the accomplishments based on dishonesty can be immense and yet not able to reduce the feeling of dissatisfaction.

On the other hand, when we trascend over denial, we learn that in order to enhance ourselves, we need to stop diminishing ourselves( by denying reality); in order to strengthen ourselves, we shouldn't take admitting mistakes as a weakness but the denial of them as one.

Trascendence over denial shall bring the true enjoyment and satisfaction of our accomplishments because in the process, no falseness we generated, no heart we hurt and so reality is not split in two pieces but stays as one, one that we feel happy about.
