MY MIND PLAYING TRICKS: THINKING YOU ARE NOT AS GOOD AS YOU ARE

“Mind F**K.”


why i hurt

I come from work from my overnight shift and go to sleep because it is still in the early A.M. And when I wake up it is usually in the morning in as well. How do I get myself motivated when my mind is rattled about when and where to start my day. This is something that comes across my mind on a daily basis. You start to feel like your mind is trying to destroy you from progressing in life. And that is a tough thing because you need your mind to exist. And your mind will be the launching pad that will propel you into success. So when it goes so does the ability to succeed.

the mirror doesn’t lie, your mind does

You ever stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself with disdain? The look that you don’t like what you see and that you are never going to be better than where you are now. That feeling of image as you look in the mirror will eventually turn into your reality. And the mirror will give you a literal interpretation of what you think of yourself. Only the mirror is not a trick mirror. You will slowly turn into the person you thought you were prior to what you have become. Your own physical embodiment will shift and now you are that person you hate. Trust and believe I know what that feeling is about and have been in that place.

uncertainty and unknown

Walking into the land of who knows what is a scary place to be. Because now you are trying to maneuver in a place where you are foreign. You don’t speak the language of the land and any form of communication means nothing. And I walk through this land, not because of the city where I dwell, but life. And that is why I feel like the mind is playing tricks. What I wake up intending to do and what I actually do sometimes is different. It’s like I am in a fight with myself because I don’t ever think I look as good as I look. I don’t think I am as smart as I am. So there is this constant battle with self until I am successful at what I do in life.

HITTING A WALL: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF ABILITY

Brown Brick Wall

“Can’t think huh?”


i can’t go anywhere

Whenever you’re working within your career or on a career interest, you may find yourself stuck in a rut. And that is when you hit a wall and it becomes difficult to get yourself out. You try to do anything you can to get yourself out of this funk, but you can’t. And if you have never been in this place, it will test your will power. Me, I am working on screenwriting, my books, and photography, so I am always in this place of trying to come up with something new. And when I do it’s great, when I can’t things start to get a little rocky mentally.

in a dark place

When you can’t move past the point you are at in your career, you start to get these thoughts in your mind. These thoughts that range from I hate my life, to why am I still here on Earth. And this is that creepy place you don’t want to be. Because if you don’t remove yourself from this area mentally, you will find yourself slipping even further down from where you are at now. So what you must do is keep yourself distracted with something, even if it’s not your career sometimes. Yes, that won’t help you get out of the funk you are in, but it is a momentary thing until you can remove yourself into a better mental state.

knowing your path

Knowing your projected path in life is crucial in getting yourself out of this mental state. When you know how far you want to go and it’s crystal clear then you can remove yourself from the down point to a much better place in life. Now, that doesn’t mean you will never be back in that place again, but it means when you know your path to a degree you can remove yourself quicker the next time you reach that point of the funk again.

CONSCIOUS US: THE BUILDING BLOCKS BEHIND WHY WE HAVE ONE

Image result for CONSCIOUS

“Into the brain mechanics.”


what is it 

Having a conscious is something that is baffling on so many levels. And those of you who are unfamiliar with what is a conscious. A conscious is the ability to have the understanding of the world around you, to be awake. Now, in today’s society, people throw that word around so freely its pitiful. But how many people are truly awake. But that was a question for last month’s topic of the mind. This is the science behind why we have a conscious and how it works. So how does it work and why do we have one?

the mechanics of the mind

The small illustration below shows the mechanics of how man uses the conscious in our initial stage of life on this planet. We have a problem we have to solve, but in order to solve that problem we must be able to seek out a way to fix the problem. So in the beginning of time man had rain coming down. In order to keep from getting wet, man sought refuge in places that didn’t have rain entering. This was the place of man’s immediate home for living. And just like that, we started our path to what would be today. So the explanation is quite straight forward for how it works. Problem/Obstacle → theories to deal with problem → find a solution to the problem → problem solved → continue to enhance understanding for future problems.

why we have one

Why do we have one? We have one because it is the reason that has kept us alive for so long. Without being able to understand the sudden changes, certain obstacles placed before us, we would have died off. And from this we developed a communication link to keeping others from falling victim. And from there we started to develop language, and from there on we can build off of more to create working civilizations. The conscious also aids us in helping others because we could see ourselves in that same position. So we have one to continue to exist. The moment we become less aware, we become slaves to our own vulnerability.

WEAK MINDS: HOW PEOPLE ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE LED ASTRAY

Related image

“Control your mind or someone else will.”


WHAT ARE WEAK MINDS?

Those out there who have weak minds are constantly willing and able to be led astray. And notice I said willing and able because above all, you control your mind. But those who possess a weak mind don’t want to admit that they have an issue, or have convinced themselves that how they think is real. These are also the people who have some internalized secret, some form of hurt, that is coming out in some form. Could be a person who has a hard time dealing with loss, has turned to drugs to cope. Or the person who grew up without a father having turned to a pimp for guidance.

HOW DO YOU SPOT THEM?

We all know they exist, and some of you might be a weak mind yourself. But how do you spot those who hold a weak mindset. Well, here is a truth behind the weak mind. Humans have evolved into creatures where we have the ability to make a perceived rational decision. Perception is important because you may be wrong from time to time, but you perceive this to be a good decision. From that, it becomes held belief, perspective. Yet, not all beliefs should be followed. But instead of questioning the belief, we delve deeper. And someone looking to capitalize will see this and give you the answers you want to hear. They know it’s wrong, but it’s to their benefit over you.

KEEPNG YOUR MIND SHARP

For anyone out there in the world, keeping your mind sharp is a tough feat. You have all sorts of feelings going through your body that you think are real. Some are and some aren’t, it’s all about process of eliminating what’s not important. But if you hold on to everything without challenging the belief, you’ll find yourself going down a rabbit when forced to rationalize your belief. Then that burden of proof will shine through, showing you the real. Weak minds will fight back against the real, and further take themselves down that rabbit hole. Furthermore opening themselves up to manipulation.

GREAT MINDS BELONG TO THE WORLD: WHY YOU SHOULD BE FREE WITH YOUR KNOWLEDGE

Image result for einstein

“Spread the wealth.”


WHAT IS A GREAT MIND?

A great mind is not someone who can go to school and get a degree in a related field. A great mind is someone that has an open perspective on the world and is able to rationally apply it to society that is of benefit to everyone. Meaning, great engineers of our time and the past were able to create great efforts that we still use today: locomotive, automobile, aircraft, and aquatic. Well, what separates them from everyone else in society. Plenty of people have what they believe as great minds, but what makes the greats the great.

HOW DO YOU GET ONE?

The question of, “How do you get a great mind,” is not as simple as asking the question getting the answer. There are genetics involved, having a need that comes into question, as well as your take on the world. But there is another key element, and that is knowing that no matter how much you believe in something, understand when it’s not good. That means how many people are truly able to be true to what they are in life. Most people have this mental block that enables them to see who they are and their strengths along with weaknesses. They hear something that doesn’t align with their belief system and automatically shoot it down, instead of asking why do I believe in this and is it truly righteous to believe.

THE BAD MINDS OF THE BUNCH

Those who are of the group of people that can not get past themselves are the ones who can never reach full potential. They usually shift blame elsewhere on everyone else except themselves. These are the people who love the conspiracy theorist to death. Because we live in this society now where there is a demographic of people that love a place where they can go out and look for what ales them that will give them a reason for their current mental, financial, physical, or governmental situation outside themselves for why they can’t progress in life. I am in this situation because of this person or that systemic issue.

THE MASSES STILL NEED YOUR HELP

Still, even with the bad minds of society, the masses still could use a great that will propel them in the right direction. A great that will provide them with another way to look at life. A way that will not only set up the current generation but future generations for as the Declaration of Independence once said, “A future security for this nation.” And if you are of one of those people, it’s your duty to do so because when you don’t, you not only rob yourself, but you rob society of a quality of life. A quality that is not present currently at the moment.

MENTAL TRANSFER: CAN YOU LEND ENERGY TO OTHERS UNKNOWINGLY

Related image

“The gift that keeps giving.”


WHAT IS MENTAL ENERGY?

The mental energy that we possess is the ability to regulate our blood pressure and the increase performance of a specific task at hand. That means, if I am working on something that I find pleasure in performing and the task at hand creates a sense of pleasure, I will release good mental energy. That energy will inevitably contribute to happiness, motivation, focus, and the willpower to keep fighting in life. And it is this energy that can be released to other people around you. Well, how does that take place?

THERMAL DYNAMICS

The mathematician, astronomer, theologian and physicist Sir Isaac Newton theorized that energy is neither lost nor destroyed, just transferred from one party to the next. This means you can transfer your negative or positive energy on to other people. Meaning, you ever get into an argument and after the person who started the argument is feeling good, you’re drained? That is because the energy of the negative person is transferred to the other party. That would mean the same goes for good mental energy. You have someone come across you with good mental energy and they can shift your emotion. Whatever you may be going through, they have made your day better.

EFFECTS OF THE RECEIVER

If you are the person receiving the energy from someone else, it can in return move your life into another direction. And what’s interesting is that energy does not necessarily have to be close connect. Author of the famous novel, “A Return to Love,” Marianne Williamson has a well known quote which speaks to energy in her Deepest Fears passage of the book. She speaks about, “Once you let your own light shine, you will unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” “For when you are liberated from your own fears, your presence automatically liberates others.” That simply means, once people feel your energy and see your move to greatness, it allows them to be free to pursue their dreams because they feel so connected to you.

KEEPING THAT GOOD FEELING

One of the hardest jobs is maintaining that good feeling. It’s easy for someone to infiltrate your mind and turn a seemingly good mental energy into bad mental energy. That’s why it’s good to surround yourself with good people. Because anything or anyone you put into your immediate circle that brings more bad than good, it will rub off on to you. That also goes for the music you listen to, programming you watch, and the publications you read.

TOO MUCH SELF AWARENESS: ARE WE BECOMING TOO IN THE KNOW

anatomy, biology, eye

“We were made to learn; but this much, really?”


INTRODUCTORY 

The more we become aware of who we are, are we starting to see humanity become more and more depressed? Are we hitting this point where we are so in the know that it’s bringing people down? Because if you are a science buff, then you have reason to believe that people are not going anywhere special after death. And if that is to be held as factual over time, then how will that fair with man knowing that this is it? Or, are we going to see the complete opposite? People may become more empathetic once we fill that this is it for us on Earth.

EVIDENCE

Graphical chart

The chart below shows the science of the way in which humanity has evolved in the mind over time.

The chart was made using the information found on the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

The information above was found from the → Smithsonian website regarding how the brain has evolved over time. The independent dots represent the different stages of human evolution, while the dots attached to lines shows what happened between that time years ago.

  • At the highest point we are at 4 – 6 million years ago when scientist stated that brain size increased giving us the ability to walk upright and make simple tools.
  • The second point shows where the brain and the body increases with respect to each other about 2 million to 800,000 years ago. At a time where we also ventured throughout the globe and came in contact with many different ways of life and survival.
  • Then the third point is represented by the lowest point; and this is where we experienced the climate change and how we as humans adapted to our surroundings as well as our interactions with each other. A time where life was unpredictable and the brain had to adjust; 200,000 to 800,000 years ago.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

All of this information we have and will have in the future means that once we continue to experience shifts and changes in climate and our relationships with each other grows, so will our brains. And once you get in the know it’s impossible to go backward. But will it make people more depressed and more vulnerable? So far, we have lasted this long on Earth and we have learned and continue to learn every step of the way. So being too in the know is only scary to generations who have lived a long time on Earth and watch drastic change from when they were young. We aren’t knowing too much too soon, you are just getting old and can’t handle it, and you’re rejecting new information that you believed for so long to be false.
