The following image and text appeared on my Facebook timeline and I thought I’d share it and add my comments.
<Quote> “To say that a thing is imaginary is not to dispose of it in the realm of mind, for the imagination, or the image making faculty, is a very important part of our mental functioning.… Read the rest
It’s not that the emotions are ugly… it’s what the long denied emotions are holding that is ugly.. The unlovingness that one originally experienced is taken in and accepted, and is added to by the self-imposed denial of emotional expression and this is what is finally being exposed for what it is.… Read the rest
I copied this post from a post that was on my Facebook timeline… It says it very well.
“No society wants you to become wise: it is against the investment of all societies. If people are wise they cannot be exploited. If they are intelligent they cannot be subjugated, they cannot be forced into a mechanical life, to live like robots.… Read the rest
Saying NO… Sounds easy, but is one of the hardest things to do as GUILT will try to back you down every time you try to take a stand. You also need to learn to say NO to GUILT.
Here is a video by Lady Gag a revealing how she finally had the courage to say no to a lot of things that she was doing to please other people, and to make her feel she was worthy and accepted.… Read the rest
It’s interesting the things that pop up on my Facebook time line. Although I have studied the bible and other religions, I’m not a follower of organized religion, in this case, Christianity and so I’m not drawn to bible thumpers and the Church or Jesus saves sales pitch. But this talk interested me and I was curious as to what he had to say.… Read the rest
While this meme appears to have some good words of advice, it’s flawed for two reasons. The first is blaming outside influences for your problems, and secondly, in denying that the problem may be with you yourself. It’s not small thinking people that are the problem, it’s your own imprints, programs and beliefs that keep you chained and confined to your “small thinking” and limited reality… Let go of them… and you will grow… In reality, you are living in a bubble created by your own imprints, programs and beliefs that you believe are there to serve and protect you… No one is holding you back except you…Food for thought… or not..… Read the rest
I found this post on my Facebook timeline. I found this post on my Facebook timeline. It reminded me of the phrase I often use of “bent intent.” Where a person says the right words, but doesn’t have the courage (steam) to put them into action. I liked this story so I’ve copied it from facebook Planet Earth One Frame At A Time
<quote> “Before water generates steam, it must register two hundred and twelve degrees of heat.… Read the rest
This is a powerful and profound message. It’s a simple and effective way of cutting through the bullshit of so-called friends, to find the truth of what they really are in your relationship. A simple change in perspective and the whole experience shifts dramatically.… Read the rest
I found this meme that instills the real meaning of FAITH… without the religious overtures and overtones…. like; what faith are you? Do you have faith in Jesus Christ? Do you have faith in our lord. By faith are you saved. Have faith in Allah. etc. etc.. Faith isn’t about a religion or religious belief; it’s the inner strength and courage to keep going to find the truth and love you are looking for in the here and now.… Read the rest
It’s a sad state of affairs that one can’t express their thoughts and ideas openly and freely. That the individual with new ideas is mocked, ridiculed and attacked because what they say doesn’t fit into the narrow minded programs and beliefs of the brainwashed social mindset.
Unfortunately, most that have this sense of individuality and creative spark are made to feel they are wrong, and that everyone that is against them are right.… Read the rest
Use failure as stepping stones. You need to know what does NOT work in order to know what does. Like riding a bike. You need to try new things and FAIL, (fall down) in order to learn what you did wrong, that you will not do the next time. If you keep falling and doing the same thing over and over, then know you are not THINKING and looking for the cause of your failure.… Read the rest
This is a good example of a closed and indoctrinated religious mind. While this is muslin against an atheist, it really doesn’t matter what idea, belief or religion the other person has, if it’s not theirs, then it is wrong and bad, as it’s NOT THEIR BELIEF. To justify their Belief System (BS) they attack the other person’s idea or belief proclaiming they need to find help or redemption.… Read the rest
It’s interesting how these meme’s pop up on my Facebook time line. Gaslighting ties in with my previous post on Cognitive Dissonance, except there’s a reversal with a more assertive approach to get you to deny your truth and accept their version.… Read the rest
I had posted this topic before Says 318 – Cognitive Dissonance & Misinformation but I didn’t realize until this morning that cognitive dissonance is so persuasive and in control of our society. Initially, I related it with politics and religion, but it is far more insidious than that as its vile tentacles reach into the very core and heart of our being.… Read the rest
While on the “surface” this seems like an OK meme – BUT – when you really feel and think into it, it’s twisted. Yes, it has a part-truth in it, and that is how “they” set you up for the rest. I say set up as it was either done intentionally, or, the person is just presently ignorant as to what love is, and has the belief that it needs to include other words to give it meaning (which is love, but love with conditions) which isn’t what he/she was talking about.… Read the rest
Admit it. You think and feel different. You feel you don’t fit into society. You feel lost and alone. You feel like the little match girl, always on the outside looking in. You want to be like them, but you know you aren’t like them, not even close. You may dress like them, listen to the same music, watch the same TV shows, go to the same movies or clubs, do the same things they do, but at the same time, you know and feel this is not for you.… Read the rest
What’s wrong is that it states that self-sacrifice is love. While there is a part-truth in that the person attacking you may be hurt and suffering, that’s no reason to allow them to control and manipulate you. There is no need to punish them, only to stand your ground and make it clear that you do not accept their abuse and will not tolerate it.… Read the rest
We have been so accustomed to the social Matrix we live in and under, that we take it as natural and real. Yet you wonder why things are the way they are . We naively believe that we are what society says we are, when in truth, we have yet to discover who we truly are and to follow and live our destiny path.It’s time to let go of the imprints, programs and beliefs that control and limit the expression of who we really are.… Read the rest
I‘ve known for years that there is bullshit going on in Society, but until it smacks you in the face PERSONALLY it seems unreal and distant, like a story you heard others repeat. The Insurance companies, doctors, medical experts, government, police, lawyers, etc., that I‘ve had to recently deal with, have really hit this issue home.… Read the rest
No longer obeying and playing by the rules, doesn’t mean that one needs to physically revolt and fight those in a position of power; unless that is what you think/feel is necessary. To truly oppose those in a position of power, you need to realize that their power is derived from your, and societies, denials and belief that you are compelled to obey the laws that they have set forth as truth, and willingly accept that they have authority over your sovereign being.… Read the rest
I modified this image and added the text a few years ago as part of my attempt to try to put some of the pieces of the puzzle together. Don’t get me wrong in quoting the bible, as I’m not religious by any means, it’s just a couple of verses that stuck with me.… Read the rest
EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of what this meme says is true. If you have feelings that something is not right, TRUST your intuition and give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Ask questions to clear the air and you will soon find out if your feelings were wrong.… Read the rest
