Negation (psychologically) and Silence…

25 comments

Pretty much everybody is conditioned in myriads of different ways. It’s a big factor in why there is so much conflict in the world. Humans have different beliefs and ideas about how things should be done, and about what is best to do. All of our beliefs and ideas involve — and are the result of — time. These beliefs and ideas often result in conflict and friction. To go beyond this conflict without another method (in and “as” time) may involve negation and silence. Such silence is a wonderful negation (mentally) that does not involve time or methodology.

Most people, unfortunately, are conditioned to remain in time exclusively (in the mental sense). They habitually go from one set of symbolic sequences to another (unceasingly). It’s how they were educated (or miseducated) to be.

Great beauty and awareness exist beyond repetitive, sequential, mundane, symbolic mental patterns but most people are too afraid and conditioned to go beyond what they were programmed to be. And being afraid in such a way is just another extension of the stifling, dead conditioning.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  2. β€œ too afraid and conditioned to go beyond what they were programmed to be.
    Partly true, but I think most peoples senses are overwhelmed with the majority dogmas and don’t know where, or even if, they should look elsewhere.
    Beautiful piece Mr. Peace!

  3. I agree completely. This: “And being afraid in such a way is just another extension of the stifling, dead conditioning.” Fear is an extremely powerful motivator.

  4. Time is an illusion. Beliefs are programs and not set in concrete so to speak. My dad, with an Army issued GED taught me to question EVERYTHING and take all I read and hear with a grain of salt. Still doing that. Makes for a very interesting life.

      • Thank you, He wasn’t around a lot but I picked up some great pointers from him. It isn’t always formal education that makes you wise. It’s being open to learning new ideas.

  5. We are boring if we remain static and don’t appreciate the beauty around us – the Monarch butterfly is gorgeous Tom. I got some shots of some yesterday at the Community Gardens at Heritage Park. There will still plenty of blooms to sip nectar from, so I needn’t have hurried to take the shot(s) as it was content to rest there a long time.
