The society link thinking with intelligence and engraved the idea that “ the more you think the smarter you are“. But is it really true? Does thinking improve your intelligence….A certain degree of thinking is healthy but if crossed it become overthinking. Which is a word used to describe limitless-thinking. The brain as an organ demand it’s rest. So an exaggerated amount of thinking can actually fatigue the brain. Another negative impact of overthinking is distraction from the real world. more like “living inside your head”mentally moving in a limited space of thought And failing to think out of the box.
Is the thinking the only function of the brain?
No, the brain is not made only to THINK. indeed thinking is not suppose to be done all day long. Thinking must be put to use only when required, other times it’s best to stop thinking. When you don’t think you finally shift into the NOW. you become fully present at the moment. Such shift opens the door to creativity. Physical activities in general can help your mind to rest and turn your focus outward (from the mind into the body). No thinking reconnect you with your body and the world around you in action. In other words you become ALIVE.
Albert Einstein once said _“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me”
NO THINKING = FULL CONSCIOUSNESS
I can’t strop thinking!! and I don’t know what to do when I’m not thinking?
it’s impossible to know the state of consciousness when you are thinking about it. You can only experience consciousness. Think of consciousness as a mystery that needs to be discovered. What I personally do to easily shift my focus from mind to body, is concentrating on something outside of myself…Like my breathing, sound, the silence in-between the sound, the environment or even on one of my body parts. Once I reach my goal i simply reflect or imagine. Conscious is like a muscle, the more you practice it the most likely you will live in it.
Take a shower and your depression will go away. I’m serious! As silly as it sounds it’s true. Depression is caused by external factors of negative energy. It always begin outside then slowly triggers a certain emotion. The emotion grows as you give it attention and in no time it awakens the pain in your heart (unhealed wounds) and become your state of being; what we often call a “MOOD”.
There was a time when I got so busy with tasks and decided to put my self-care as my last priority. I didn’t take a shower for 2 contentious days! GROSS I KNOW. But the lesson I learned from this experiment was BIG. I recognised the dramatic mood swing. When showering you’re not only cleaning your body from dirt, but you’re cleansing your energy too. Our aunt sisters understood that water is the key to life. They referred to water as a cleansing tool for both body and soul. They use to do SPIRITUAL SHOWERS; Where you perform a normal shower but while dropping water on your body you visualise the negative energy falling off you with the water. As if the water is stripping away the negative energy from your body part.
The danger of not showing regularly goes beyond the spiritual and psychological aspects. When you don’t shower your skin PH becomes disturbed. In addition your skin pores gets blocked. When your skin can’t breath you feel DEAD and develop frustration, anger and depression. Your state of being reflects on the outside; through your attitude (transmitted energy) and what you attract (received energy)…In conclusion, not showering can cause a great harm to one self and to the entire world.
A short advice to those who have Been suffering with depression for a very long time. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. Yet just because it’s common it doesn’t mean you should accept it. Get yourself out. Reflect on your lifestyle and what could possibly be feeding your depression. Is it sad energy you watch online? Is it your diet or your self esteem? Or is it the fact that you lock yourself at home? .. Any exaggerated action can produce negative results.
LIVE AS A HUMAN, LIVE THE RIGHT WAY.
If I would ask you right now, are you free? will you honestly answer yes?
Most people deep down know that they’re not free. Maybe the definition itself is the boundary. Maybe you weren’t born a slave to this world but you enslaved yourself by what we call A TITLE. Maybe the roles you play are not a part of life, but a mechanism for limitations…
What is an IDENTITY?
An identity is a title that you inherited by the society based on your Role ( functional role believed by the subconscious mind). in addition, your identity could be based on a place that you THOUGHT you found yourself in. It’s anything we put before it “my “ or “I’m”. in fact we’re told to constantly identify ourselves with things as if we’re equivalent to objects. But the down side to self identifying is that what you identify yourself with becomes a part of you. (Not in reality, but in the subconscious belief system of WHO YOU ARE). your belief attach you to the tittle your gave yourself and makes you live in limitation of your identity. Every identity you adopt takes away a piece of your freedom, limits your potential and keeps you fixated instead of being the flexible human being you are .
It’s extremely difficult to overcome the desire of self identification. however, when you stop looking for “who you are ” automatically you will find the truth of who you are. Identities are man made illusions, they’re created by the mind and feeds the Ego. As long as the ego inside you is alive, consciousness can’t take place. Only more limitations of the the false image will emerge; causing illusionary emotions like fear, negativity etc.. “TO BREAK FREE YOU MUST LET GO” to rise you must kill what’s holding you down.
-you’re your own worst enemy-
I was in a gathering the other day where everybody BRAGED, Showed off what they have or did. Naturally I just don’t like talking about myself, especially showing off! So i stayed silent. The following days I realized the change in attitude of people around me. Obviously the one who showed off the most or in the society’s eyes is “Great” and “Wealthy ” was given respect and honnor. Where for me I was discounte and i got taken by the negativity.
Suddenly it hitted me ..” Just because I don’t show off my greatness, doesnt mean i’m not great“. It’s insane how we can think less of ourselves and believe in other’s opinion of us. Yet worst, make it our reality. We live in an age where Trend is stronger than one’s own voice. Indeed, the society tremendously influence how we perceive ourselves.
THE ASCH CONFORMITY EXPERIMENT; is a psychological experiment done in the 1950’s. The experiment revealed the degree to which a person’s opinion is influenced by those of groups. It proved that the society can suppress our voice. In fact, people were willing to ignore the reality and give an incorrect answer inorder to conform to the rest of the group. See for yourself ;
You’re great and you don’t need to prove it! No, you don’t need to mimic the false greatness (The Greatness measured with materialistic ownership). Greatness is already within you. True greatness in what’s inside you. At the end of life the only memory will be left of you after you die, is the memories you gave to others. Not your big house or your fancy cars, but how many hearts you’ve touched.
ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IS AN ACT OF INTELLIGENCE IN A WORLD FULL OF CONFORMIST _ Nikola Tesla.
I had a different blog to post today that I prepared beforehand. But honestly when I saw this on my news feed i couldn’t help it!! It’s crazy how we tend to forget about those who’re under less fortunate. We get so caught up in materialism and how many things we don’t have yet. That we became such self centred creatures with a cruel heart. We envy and hate of those above us (financially). Forgetting the truth that we are blessed! We are blessed with so much more than the eye can see and the head can count. We are blessed with so many tinny seemingly invisible blessings on daily basis, that we take for granted. Such as air, water, food, senses, people ..etc
I can’t even count the blessings of god because they’re un-countable. It’s really incredible how the motion of life itself, is a blessing. Imagine if something went wrong all of a sudden? Whatever happens in your present is manifested by the blessings and protection of god. ❤
So be grateful. Thank God for what you have now. Did you know that all God’s creation like animales , plant and nature praises god all the time. In Comparison, how little we do.
Due to my experience, I found that fake people vary in degrees of fakeness. So you find a person who’s fake yet not very harmful, while another is super toxic in nature. Why? Because of the materialistic society we live in. Social media encourages people to become FAKe, to put on a false image of themselves. I actually believe that nowadays everybody is infected with a degree of fakeness.
How to spot a fake person? Fake people are with levels of fakeness, so they might have some of these trades or not all. The people who’re slightly fake are harder to spot than toxic people.
1. Attention seeker; A fake person is always hungry for attention and drama. It have to do with his/her ego nature.
2. Showing off all the time; again this subconscious attitude is done by the ego and sense of being incomplete or less than others.
3. They only respect people with power; here where they ” PLAY DIRTY”! Fake people are manipulative experts and super target focused. If they want something from you, they will do anything to get you to like them. It’s also called being TWO FACED or USING OTHERS .
4. They’re a gossiping machine; Fake people love to gossip. They have a sneaky communication habit, Which is not expressing their opinion honesty or directly.
5. They criticize others to make themselves look good. Fake people are very ego based. They’re unable to love or care for anyone other than themselves. They just think of themselves as superior to everyone.
6. They have a big mouth; Fake people will be the first to give promises and big words, yet do nothing at all. They love playing the HERO or Painting a perfect image of themselves .
7. They’re very reactive; Fake people react over everything! They often look for drama and conflicts. So you might find them a little too nosy.
