So how do you start when you want to reach someone? By simple stating the already known or by formulating questions that plants the seeds so that you can be more aware of processes within and without? My wish and purpose with this blog is to assist my readers in creating a framework to make their existence more comprehensible. Existential questions are crucial for man to reflect upon. And there are lots of people out there only focused in the lesser deeds of self focus as a way to feed their egos. I want to aid you in broadening your understanding and expand the awareness of the inner world and its correlation to the outer world.
Travel is basically an act to broaden the inner world and to expand the sense of understanding oneself and others. But also a way in making sense of time subjectively. So the understanding of time is built upon memories and they are made strong thru various factors .Travel can wake up the person to see their fellow humans and themselves in a way not possible if they only where to work and only be subjected to routines. When humans look back and remember their lives it will be remembered in a hierarchical manner where those memories which have the most building blocks from sensory stimuli, feelings and meaning are the ones that thru remembrance defines us in a linear way thru life.
Time is the frame in which everything existing dwells so it is a good place to start your reflecting.
I hope that you will come back for more? I am investing my time here for you and you invest your time here to grow and to broaden your sense and understanding of yourself and others. Making time meaningful is the most valuable gift that we can give each other.
Thank you for making my time meaningful best regards from Samuel.
Looking at the picture of the pendulum above one can draw certain conclusions . It is impossible to understand who or what the pendulum is held up by when merely observing the picture. This also holds true in regards to most of that which people nowadays get subjected to. Yesterday i looked at a you tube clip and my wife asked me this question; ” do you know anything about this person that made this and if this is true or not? I replied; “Do you know anything about the ones creating the Netflix series that you watch?” The interesting thing is that we often only question information that go against our beliefs,worldviews, preferences and so on. (in psychology this is known as cognitive biases) Seldom do we question the news from the state sponsored media or that which is regarded as entertainment. We humans perceive that which gets presented to us. in many cases without ever thinking about in what way this can change our preferences in our lives regarding morals,preferences ,choices and our actions.
The illusion of the self as a “fixed state” is widely evident but often not so often something that ever will be made consciously aware in generality. Adaptation is as we know it a trait crucial for all species in regards to their survival, this also holds true for society’s. As people work and get numb down in their consciousnesses because of stress and workloads. Something will probably happen as they come home and look at certain series on their televisions or smartphones? Whit a non critical perceiving and a certain level of capitulation in regards to that which is shown they are molded into that which is unknown to themselves. So theoretical the ones creating the series can actually have plans or goals who are unknown for the ones getting subjected to it.
The potential danger lies within the general perceived security level of a society. For there it normally exist a very low amount of questioning in regards to that which gets perpetrated in the media. But for someone living in north Korea this probably wont be the case. Because a totalitarian society use all media as means of control and manipulation of the people living there. So they are probably more aware of this aspect of the media i believe.
But the great thing about propaganda in a totalitarian state is that it actually often is pretty obvious in what purpose it is made for. But the news in a democratic country is often taken only for what they are. Like something which strictly gets used for public service. But the question seldom arise within the viewers of the news , why this is shown? The true purpose of it and the real incitements behind it.
Why report selectively if not as for a purpose and therefore also used in the exact manner as the report that will bee displayed? Withholding certain aspects of the bigger picture or leading the public astray. Leaving something out can have an immense effect often surpassing that which is being shown for the exact same purpose.
The danger of YouTube is that it offers models of reality that assimilates within the public psyches whether the want it or not. Non criticism is often an effect correlating with the amount of subjectively felt security. As someone has come home they shut down their persona which is displayed in public. Humans get very vulnerable to critic and judgment by their fellow man as they they step outside their homes. This activates a mental “ready” state that never gets activated as someone is at home by themselves. This is then exploited by a variety of agents like the market and others known or unknown who resides out there on the internet.
So please step into your “ready state” as you go out on YouTube and on the internet. Otherwise you will get subjected to various risks because of your falsely felt level of comfort, security and control. Which actually does not reside where you are in your home by your self. Due to the fact of a vast amount of ideas,morals and worldviews that gets “streamed” into your psyches on a daily basis.
Nowadays people are exposed to vast amounts of almost ever accessible temptations. Thanks to the internet and the everyday carrying of cellphones. Most people nowadays wont raise their eyebrows if someone they know looks at porn. But what are the effects upon man that are harmful and which have not been made consciously aware and properly defined?
Due to the secularization of today the word guilt is mostly associated to something with reference to crime. But as a belief system comes in play guilt follows. Belief in a morality that is of an higher kind like that of the teachings by Jesus Christ. Where even that what we think will be the incitements for our verdict. If we of course have not confessed, asked for forgiveness and repented. But whether people may be secular, atheistic or agnostic out there. Looking at porn will not be regarded as such a big issue until they get desensitized to the normal sexual content. And go to the extremes and find a liking for something that go against that which is culturally normative, legal or accepted.
There must exist a respect and an understanding regarding the potential threat from the exposure of material with various displays of sexual content. Because it can set in motion a subjective and progressive sexually preferential and deterministic process of evolution. Towards that which is destructive and unmoral even in regards to the secular society of today.
The psyche of a normal non addicted and psychologically healthy human will for the most part gravitate towards input that will promote neural connectivity and growth of brains cells. Progression is a factor inherent in most psyches which is affects specific behaviors and motivate actions. Like in video gaming to name only one. This is why it is very dangerous with the immense variety of material with sexual content that is so easily accessible.
Desensitization and adaptation is something we as humans must have respect of. Because as someone choose to expose himself to porn over a certain time that which was adequate once will no longer stimulate the subject enough. This will push forward the limits and for some people this can have terrific consequences like in the case of the serial killer Ted Bundy. And the list goes on regarding the vile sexual preferential s out there.
So my advice to men out there is stay away from pornography because it is a destroyer of people,relations, families and morality. We must have the proper respect regarding the corruptible capacity that pornography has over most people that get exposed to it.
In the culture of today it seems as people get lost as they search for mental health and this can clearly be understood thru reflecting upon the seemingly increasing amount of people lost in their gender identification. I understand that there are born babies with not fully developed sexual organs. And a variety of abnormal developmental mutations related to the sexual organs and the endocrine system. In relation to these cases i think caution should be made for doctors and parents which will propagate for surgically transforming the baby into a boy or a girl. And wait if possible until the child get a feeling of belonging to a specific gender. In this blog post i would like to specify the psyche, its health and the subjective ways of the identification with a specific gender .
So as we grow up a need to identify ourselves with different models for our developmental processes becomes crucial. For who can build themselves up without any external models for their psychological developmental trajectory? Or in other words ” Monkey see and monkey do”! In the shallow society that most people adhere to the sexual and gender identification runs parallel with shallowness. Psychic traits and preferences get categorized subjectively into either female or male attributes which solemnly determines the categorization of someone being either male or female. And when people get lost in their understanding of their own gender identification, one must ask if it is solemnly is based upon specific traits, certain feelings or specific preferences.
So if psychological traits are shallowly understood one effect of that can be related to the process of the identification to a certain gender. And if these traits clearly are displayed within or thru the subject. The gender identification will be based upon this. But i believe this is not enough to base ones gender identity upon because of the diversity of physiological traits that are displayed in both sexes.
Mental illness like depression is of course also something that can be an incitement that drives someone to drastically change their gender. We know that mental illness like depression to name only one lead people to a “fleeing from them selves”. Drugs are used by many to flee from their current state of mental illness. And then we have people playing rolls to flee. Then the urge for some to flee from their mental torment also can be made thru them changing their gender. The most tragic and final flight from life itself is by suicide. We can see that a majority within the transgender community deals with thoughts of self harm and suicide in many surveys.
So if a person feels like being created wrong in accordance to their gender, how then can the changing of their surface fix this? Changing Clothes putting on make up or thru steroids growing a beard, losing fat, gaining muscle, and thru plastic surgery changing certain features and finally the sexual organ. All this is merely surface their brains and psyches remain mostly as before. Is it possible to conclude solemnly from the statements of someone their true gender identity,solemnly based upon feelings, thoughts and preferences?
Of course the person with gender dysphoria claims that they feel and think like the opposite sex. But how can they know this? Even if the most extreme of surgeries are made the person still knows on some level either conscious or subconscious that it is unnatural and not a real transformation into the opposite gender. And this will lead to more mental sufferings afterwards their surgery.
There exist people with other forms of dysphoria like species dysphoria. If someones fells that they are an animal like a cat, should we hold this as a true statement even though it is only based upon that persons subjectively assessed identification?
We humans are all to a certain degree confined to some limits that hinder us from realizing our dreams or aspirations. This is life and all creatures on this earth have a constitution that may not always be optimal. But we who are logical beings although sadly to a in various degree. Have options to reshape neural pathways within our brains. And learn to accept the non realizable dreams. Also accepting those things that we cant change or become. And accept who we are meant to be from the beginning in the wounds of our mothers.
I want to tell you who are lost in “gender confusion” that God made you with a purpose, created you to be who you are from birth. Fleeing from the truth cant save you. But in the acceptance of yourself you will find peace not in the fleeing of trying to be another gender. We cant change the sun into the moon. Because our reality is actually based upon absolutes like that. Do not destroy your reality by changing your gender. May the Lord free you and bless you with truth and deliverance from confusion, and depression and give you acceptance and gratefulness for you are loved. Amen.
Consciousness is of course not something that we really can understand or clearly define thru the current level of knowledge found in science or philosophy. So here i use the term more as a meta-word that so to say brings us understanding of the subjects wholeness of their psyches and their potentials. In bringing the ones that are in contact with them a perceived higher level of status in a variety of settings in relation to other subjects there. Whether it be in culture science or social settings as to name a few.
Everywhere we turn we categorize humans and life in general upon their perceived or estimated level of consciousnesses. But not thru its potentials in becoming someone with a higher consciousness. This ac cures whether we would like to admit it or not. Every year 56 million babies are aborted across the world. We mostly consciously ignore this because it is so culturally grounded within our psyches. Most humans set their own welfare or social status as the deterministic factor which promotes the abortion. Only visualizing the negative outcomes from having the baby and not thinking about the potential it has in reaching a higher form of consciousnesses who could help or bring humankind forward in some field of science or in great thought who could inspire others as to name a few possibilities. And in the judging of the baby’s status as not compatible with a real human in the descriptive term of a fetus. Which directly diminishes its value because of its lover stage of development. The fetus terminology so to say locks in the baby in the present without taking its futurity in with its progress and becoming of a conscious, moral citizen with capacity to contribute to the parents, society or the world.
A worm is seen for most humans as a creature having a very low innate value from which it can get protection from being crushed by a bicycle wheel as an example. But its value correlates with its function in the Eco system as an entity turning fallen leafs into soil in which we cultivate our food in. That gives the worm a ecological high value. Most humans in contrary to that example only basically can be described more thru a perspective of something parasitical that mostly burden the planet. These examples fit value assessments of persons who sees the world thru the materialistic and nihilistic worldview in a conscious manner.Also a large amount of humans assess the value of others in a similar way but thru their subconscious that affect their subjective value assessments of humans and life in general.
Lets face it , if we are purely materialistic we could easily thru derivative logic compare the outcome and effects of worms and compare them to most humans and give them both statuses and values derived from these. This is the danger in having a worldview purely materialistic with no God who has given us laws that give all a value that is innate in them from being created with an objective worth which derive from them purely being created as human. We must have respect for the immense value aspect of grounding ones morality on the words of Jesus instead of in oneself or the world. In our value assessments of each other.
Wherever we look in culture today there are stories of magic both for kids and grownups. The vast amount of magic today in popular culture strongly correlates with the growth of secularization i believe. In the time between world war 1 and 2 an increasingly interest of spirituality and the occult spread out thru Europe as people left Christianity. Most people are not familiar that the Nazis leadership had a strong belief in the occult . They where aware of symbols and the effects they have upon the psyches of humans.
Symbols represents ideas,unite minds and sets forth movement. As we for example fill an arena with people and show them a familiar sign they will immediately start to associate within their minds. The symbol brings knowledge into awareness thru associations from their subconscious. We all know to a certain extent the power of the free market with its brands, logos and different symbols and the effects they have upon us as we decide to buy a product. The symbol carry a meaning that often in a subliminal manner determinate actions of humans so that they for example will purchase a product.
As the idea or the information related to the sign is known to the subject then its emergence within the mind will be either consciously or subconsciously made. The altering of the subjects interpretation, will and actions to various extents are real and advertisement has been born out of this reality. So i find it interesting that most people in general have so little respect to the influence of this ever growing interest in the occult thru series, media, music, art and so on. Words carry meaning and the signs adhering to it take another path within the psyche thru its activation of different regions in the brain.
So now we must ask ourselves about the reality of beliefs and magic as means to control and change human behavior? Even if it appears to be fiction and fairy tales. Can our brains really separate art,culture and media from altering different levels within the psyche? As someone looks at a movie their brain sends signals to set free hormones and trigger muscular responses altering breathing patterns and pulse. The persons brain can not consciously at certain times during the movie differentiate fiction from reality.
So as we to a certain degree understand and acknowledge the effects of words, signs, pictures and beliefs and their potentiality and power. We must start to question the immense signs and messages from the occult in our everyday lives. And we must seek out the greatest force only to be found in God. And the sign that carries the message of Jesus having defeated sin and the adversaries of God and brought us salvation. The sign that leads us to righteousness and salvation. And is the only hope that conveys forgiveness.
God bless you and i pray that you will understand the reality that Christ has brought all who seek him. And that you will be able to receive the holy spirit to guide you thru life. So it can bring you freedom from sin and give you hope, rest and the power to withstand all that this world tries to lead you astray with. In the name of the father the son and the holy spirit amen.
The weather is a subject that is popular for people in general to talk about in almost all kinds of settings whether it be at the buss stop or in a elevator with more or less known people. But what can you learn about someone as they make comments upon the weather?
You will notice the personal preference as to describe and interpreter the weather. Often in a positive or negative manner as you take notice of what words someone use to describe the weather. When there ac curs more negative or positive words which also is supported by a body language and face expressions of suffering, anxiety or assertiveness,comfort and so on. You will so to say often capture something of that persons inner ways to interpret their world and life in general.
If the weather is bad a more resilient person will ad to that weather something more positive like; ” Yes its raining a lot now so i have time to clean my house, get my storage organised and play my piano more.” This supported with a upright body pasture a firm eye contact, smiles and a open body language. The type who have a more fragile and negative mindset will often use words that normally is used to describe negative feelings in describing the weather; “This weather is depressing, i don´t have the energy to do anything when its raining so much, i just want to sleep all the time.” This supported by the look downwards and a body posture of low energy showing defeat .
The workings and projections from the subconsciousness emerge under the most natural, daily small chats or statements that people make. If one is awake and take notice of these it will help to get to know someones need for support. Or help in getting to know someone better. In general people are unaware of the incredible effects upon their behavior that their subconscious have. The subconscious is certainly not neglected for the runners of the consumer market. To have an awareness of the huge influential effects that the subconscious have upon our lives is of great importance if some or any changes of a conscious nature will be able to take place. But that which dwells within the subconscious is something that i later will write more about later here on my blog.
All that emerge have a preexistence of being submerged. The trees sprout from the ground like the actions of man from the subconscious. And the iceberg is also like the psyche partially emerged but mostly submerged.
Where there exists faith there also exists a road by which the human psyche can travel upon. Progress and most actions have their grounding in faith and the awareness of that is probably not so often understood by humans in general. Most secular people put their trust in psychologist when all that they have done cant bring them what they so desperately need. They put their trust in medicines to subdue the feelings that in a lot of cases actually are trying to tell them something.
The placebo effect is scientific relevant because it is empiric and positive with sometimes equal effects of medicine. So is the generally lesser known nocebo effect which work in a more destructive way as it is effecting the human psyche and biology. So belief in the good or the harmful have real effects not thoroughly understood by modern science.
Faith serves us from a pure psychological perspective as it can give us hope and motivate us to keep on going against all odds. Faith is like the carrot on a stick hanging down in front of the stubborn donkey, it motivates the donkey to go forward. Doubt on the other hand keeps us restraint so that no movement forward is to be made. Where would mankind be without faith? We must be humble to the fact that this world have certain limitations as do we. If ones belief system solemnly is based upon the materialistic worldview that comes with certain limitations concerning the amount of hope, motivation, resilience,deliverance and comfort that one can get.
So as we move into faith within the immaterial worldview which is related to God, it transcends the limits of the material world. Therefore it can serve man immensely more. A believer in God can rely on the father as someone to take of the weight from concerns thru the practice of prayer. And in the hardships of life trust in a greater plan that God has regarding ones life, the future is unknown to the believer but faith in God gives him or her deliverance from worries and uncertainties.
One aspect people do not focus or prioritize upon as they are setting goals is if the goal is truthful or based upon belief. Often that which later becomes manifested has its origin in the thoughts of men who believe in the reality of a possibility of that idea. If belief in God is irrelevant for atheist who so to say believe in ideas themselves or relate to thought structures of dead thinkers who´s only current type of existence is thru their books,words and ideas. Why is the idea of a dead philosophizer of any real worth when they so to say do not exist? Is their word only truthful if the source of them exist? So as they claim to have no need to believe in a God that does not exist. They should ask themselves why believe in anyone that does not exist?
God speaks to us thru words written down and the words carry hope meaning, deliverance, guidance and mercy. There function upon the human psyches are real and therefore truthful. I believe that the value someones word has have to do in what way it can bring answers of existential worth and transform someone towards the highest good and be the frame and goal for the moral values progressive works. And enable men/women to withstand trends and cultural movements of different societies that directly or indirectly go against that which is good. If one believes in the potential of transforming man by the word and the truth aspect of it that truly justifies a belief in God.
John 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
