We live in times where most have conditioned responses originating from subconscious fear and shame imprints expressing through an unwillingness to confront, listen and contemplate, with ridicule and judgement which are often in tandem with and egoic false superiority towards anything not in line with personal opinions or current cultural or scientific theories and beliefs.
Our wiser ancestral traditions had the ability to engage with ideas, be they opinions truth folklore or myths without rigidity, with a sense of discernment, a beginner’s mind and trust in their heart’s guidance.
The ability to engage with anything internal or external from a playful curiosity, devoid of judgement and fear programs, seeking insights into truth’s and illusions’ emanations is truly rare.
Why are we so afraid to allow our mind to entertain the foolish, the different, the dejective and let our curiosity and intuitive capacities of creating knowing use these for a more differentiated and subtle understanding of our reality?
Why is it so hard for so many to grasp the beauty and miracle of our individual realities thanks to our meaning creators of minds?
Why are we quick to forget how easy it is to manipulate our brains, decisions and thinking with simple strategies and techniques? Why are we ready to embrace this knowledge but so unwilling in researching how we have fallen for manipulation?
When have we begun to be so awfully serious, fear-driven and incapable of holding several contrasting ideas in our mind?
How are we so blind to the oneness of seeming dualities all around us?
Isn’t it time we stepped out of this suffocating game of ignorance and fear to claim our wholeness and sovereignty?
“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.“
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
