Love is not all we need

The Human nervous system benefits well from experiencing the entire emotional spectrum. Through happiness and joy we enjoy life, through sadness and suffering we grow spiritually/ intellectually . Though we cannot control life and all of its seemingly random, and at times, seemingly synchronized events. We can choose how to perceive every situation and take from it whatever lesson we feel will help us in terms of survival, not just physical survival, but emotional as well.

“Everything in moderation” as the wise say, and I believe this to be true, as excess in anything leads to imbalance and thus renders us open to life’s random inconveniences, or, may I say, subconsciously calculated outcomes?

Allow me to explain my observed function and importance of balance, mental, emotional, physical and how, despite our egocentric belief that humans are out of this ‘natural balance’ equation, we most certainly still fall victim to the side effects of imbalance, and benefit from a balanced life. I believe the laws of physics that apply to the physical world also apply to the emotional world. I truly believe emotions are our link to the spiritual (hyper emotional) aspect of our reality, and though that may sound esoteric, out in the unreachable ether, it’s truly an energy we can all feel with a little meditation. Though emotions have been found to simply be chemical reactions in our brain, there is no doubt they have a physical effect on our bodies as well as an effect on our physical world.

Through the realization that the physical laws of nature apply to our emotional bodies we can begin to mold and shape our emotional world to our liking as much as we have used the knowledge of these laws to alter and shape our physical world. However, this change requires the heart and mind, not the hands to construct.

Lets get to it shall we?

We will be going through the most basic laws of physics (Newton’s laws) and analyzing the correlation between Laws of physics and our emotional being.

(mass in these examples will be replaced with Emotional Intensity)

Law 1- An object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force of equal or greater force-

law 2- The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object

Law 3- All forces in the universe occur in equal but oppositely directed pairs. There are no isolated forces; for every external force that acts on an object there is a force of equal magnitude but opposite direction which acts back on the object which exerted that external force.

Our emotional state is like a pond. No external influence means no movement. We call this state: Calm. Should there be an external force to stir the waters, say, a pebble thrown in, there is a reaction and the energy of this interaction is released via ripples in the water. All emotions are but energy being released.

Real example: Should someone make you angry, sad, any emotion you don’t want to feel at that moment (it could be happiness at times) you can reverse the event in the mind rather than release the energy, the ripples (expressing the emotion). That’s the cool thing about emotions, with practice, we can be in total control . Of course the pebble and pond are but visuals to help you understand the concept.

Reversal: To reverse the ‘Pebble effect’, you simply have to reverse the entire process. Literally hit an internal rewind button. How do we do that? identify the cause of the emotion. Though few may say the cause of the emotion is the uncontrollable event, the truth is it is not the event but, our what? that’s right, PERCEPTION of the event. Break perception down to THOUGHTS, and break those thoughts down to EXPECTATIONS break those down to BELIEFS. This may sound like a major analytical process but it really boils down to asking one question; Why am I (undesirable emotion) about this? Couple that with the realization and humility that as a participant in this crazy thing we call life you are therefore subject to it’s randomness and outcomes as is everyone else and you are not immune to downs as you are not entitled to ups. That simple realization and acceptance of this universal truth, can single handedly eliminate quite a bit of negative thought that lead to negative emotions which lead to negative actions and therefore, negative outcomes and consequences in our physical world. The problem lies with an egocentric belief that everything should go our way simply because we are us and we are awesome. Though we are all awesome in our own awesome way, Nature doesn’t care for that. It cares about balance. However, if you give the pond no pebble the pond will go undisturbed, therefore no law of equivalent exchange (reaction) needs to go into effect.

On the opposite end, if you want to calm someone, say, someone at a “level 8” in the anger scale you need to approach with the opposite emotion in that same level of intensity, which is understanding and patience (law 1). Anything less and you can find yourself eventually getting worn down quickly and falling into their spectrum of anger. Match the intensity in the opposite manner and you will both eventually reach a neutral state of calm as you wear each other down. Get the picture?

This is why Hate cannot destroy Hate. Only Love can destroy Hate. Only Hate can destroy Love.  Are we matching the intensity of Hate with Love to counteract it’s effect in the world? (Newton’s third Law)

You have the ability to let no pebble land in your pond, no matter how many pebbles people throw at you. The principal of this law is action and reaction. If an action is taken towards you and calls for a reaction be careful, you are literally stirring a pool of chemicals, as that is what emotions are. In chemistry class, when you mix chemicals in a beaker, you get a reaction. That outcome can be as sweet smelling as perfume or as catastrophic as a bomb. The question is, what are you contributing to the beaker?

If someone is throwing ammonia at you, don’t throw in your own chlorine, another corrosive chemical, because you create a violent reaction that can hurt you both as well as those around you (mustard gas analogy).

On the flip side, if you find that people you interact with seem shut out, defensive, angry or defeated when interacting with you; you need to be honest with yourself and ask yourself what it is you are doing causing them to react in such a manner (completely honest).

When you take these laws and apply them to your emotional life not only will you be able to manage your own emotions but quite possibly be able to influence the emotions of others as your reactions won’t fuel the negative action they took (react to your reaction)and vise versa, you will learn to approach in a manner that will ease tensions and defenses.

Trust me it’s easier said than done, and please don’t take this as me saying you shouldn’t feel negative emotions. Emotions such as anger and sadness are indeed the best approaches to situations at times and even negative emotions have their place, don’t dismiss them, but also do not dwell in them.

Balance can be a little boring as it means ‘Nothing’ Neutral’ ‘Still’ ‘Centered’, and humans, well, we like being entertained. Though I gave examples on how to manage your emotions using the laws of physics the reality of it is humans are complex emotional creatures. Balance may sound like a really cool Zen word but its actuall practice is pretty dull in terms of ‘fun’ but it is absolutely vital in order for us to maintain good emotional health.

Imbalance on the other hand is easier to fall into (obviously) as the natural state of nature is chaos, and through chaos , order (balance) is found, I know it’s crazy. When you see the big picture, everything is balanced, start breaking the picture down, and you find the balance is simply caused by a bunch of little imbalances (chaos) balancing each other out. It’s pretty nuts and confusing at first but also pretty cool. We need imbalance to be balanced, to be centered. It’s okay to go way out of spectrum, just know, the other end is coming.

Have a few bad days? know a few good days are coming. Had a streak of awesome days? you probably have some neutral (boring) or inconveniences coming your way so be ready for it. Get mad or cry when they happen too so your internal emotional self knows it ruined your day so it can begin to attract good days again, ha-ha I’m kidding, I don’t think that’s how it works.

I believe this is a subconscious attraction we all have. At a conscious level obviously we want “awesomeness” 24/7, but at a subconscious level, much like the way monarch butterflies know their migrating routes, our emotional inner self want balance, as we are here to experience the full spectrum, not just the portion we want to feel.

If you work out too much you’ll plateau, if you don’t work out at all you’ll develop health issues. If you only eat meat you’ll have digestive problems, if you only eat veggies you’ll have a range of deficiencies. If you drink too much alcohol you can scar the liver, if you drink no alcohol you become prone to vascular issues, if you drink too much water you can flush your system of nutrients if you drink no water you’ll die, if you’re always out with friends, errands don’t get done, if you’re always focused on errands you don’t have time or money to spend with friends, if you use all your energy to focus on your children your marriage will suffer, if you focus too much on your marriage your children can suffer, if you’re always working you’ll burn out but have lots of money but no one to spend it with, if you never work you’ll have everyone to spend time with, no money to do anything. Get the picture? GET BALANCED.

Moderation. Everything.

Anyways, it’s good to be back after a year. I myself have had a crazy year. A few months of real, “Level 8” lows, and now am experiencing “level 8” highs as I knew I would.

Don’t worry too much about this process ladies and Gents, you can’t rig it, it just happens. Just let it happen, and when it does, and you call it, you’ll start to feel like a little psychic. You’ll get to a point where you have an amazing weekend with friends or family and you’ll tell yourself, yup, something crappy is going to happen in the next week or so, and when your tire goes flat in the rain at night a few days later you’ll pull over to the side, secretly proud of yourself. Out loud you’ll say “Called it”, and you’ll change your tire with a grin because what just happened was pretty cool I mean, you predicted the future… you little psychic you.




The Human Parasite

What is on the other side?

If this world is depicted though our senses, and senses are merely deciphered electro/magnetic explosions between our nervous system and our surroundings; What realities are we missing? if we were to invert all of our senses to their exact opposite, what kind of reality would we enter? if we were to shut all of our senses off, what would we experience?

This World… this world is plagued with rules and laws, beliefs, standards, policies. If we were to erase this clutter of limitation inducing rules what world would we live in? They say chaos, however, it seems the very Rules and laws we have in place to prevent chaos are what instigate chaos. I believe Humans are a species that like to be free both physically and mentally. Any effort to restrain that freedom has always been met with Blood, either with rebellion of the people, or merciless attacks from the Governments towards the People to contain/ prevent rebellion . .. now.. If Humanity, were to restore its physical, mental, emotional self to neutral, what kind of animal would we be? What direction will we steer to without distractions and socio economical/ political noise?

I believe the problem with this World is that everyone wants for themselves without the will to give up a luxury or convenience that will allow the desire of another group to exist in Harmony with the rest.

.. And with that comes resistance.

The fight is not between the Rich and Poor, Governments and Rebels, Christians and Muslims, Blacks or Whites etc.. it boils down to the selfish individual, who bands with other selfish individuals for the same cause. The mission between every group differs, both want to take, none want to give. The group with the most resources has the most Power and power wins.

The powerful feel entitled to control and exploit the weak, rather than use theyre unlimited resources to help the organization as a whole become a singular, perfect organism, they keep the weak down, hurt them, take advantage of them. “That is where they belong” they say. We must understand that this “Weakness” I speak of is not physical weakness, it isn’t emotional. The weakness I speak of is purely ideological. It holds no validity in the natural world. We dub people, without financial affluence as ‘weak’ and ‘lower’. We feel ‘above’ those who have not the amount of resources we have. The “weak” are getting tired of this system, this system that favors the Rich and scolds the poor, especially those who are poor of no fault of their own. Born into poverty, into a system designed to hold you there through inflation rates, interest rates overdraft fees (you’ll owe them money for not having money!) In essence, this system doesn’t make sense. As a species, that we created this system, accept this system as true and continue to utilize this system is insane and against our natural instinct to protect our own and flourish as an Organism. However, what the Powerful fail to realize is that power eventually favors the weak, as the weak eventually abhor their weakness and strive to be strong. Add in the pressure given from the Powerful, to either adapt or die, the weaker organism has no choice but to find the soft spot of the powerful and exploit it or cease to exist. Eventually you have a power struggle between those who are fighting for their existence, and those fighting for fear of losing their Power.. Life always wins.. There is a moment of Peace, and the cycle begins once again.

In reality, in true, cosmic perspective, this Power struggle is laughable. It’s pointless, makes no sense in the grand scheme of things. Humanity is an Organism that fights its Environment, and even fights itself. Rare are the viruses that attack their own.

This world, and it’s system is corroded, dirty, clogged. It seems Humans can’t keep anything clean and stable even if we tried, because at the end, what eventually matters most, is ourselves, at an individual, personal level. Our own survival. Could this be because we are the only species aware of its own individual existence? We customize ourselves via thoughts and personalities and beliefs and values, dress codes, friendships, music ideologies. This ‘Self-customization” as I call it creates an ego, and the Ego, this custom emotional defense wall is created to protect our mental creations to the death. We eventually favor our mental inclinations more than our physical life. This is how people are able to ‘die for what they believe in’.

Ego’s are dangerous. Ego’s are self-serving. Ego’s will kill you. they are a mental parasite created through emotional attachments with things, intangible things. Things that hold no worth in the physical world, but that eventually effects and molds our physical world. They eventually separate from the person in an abstract way. When someone gets so wrapped up in their ego, in their beliefs, in their perspective in their personality, anyone with a different viewpoint, or physical attribute, hell, anyone or anything DIFFERENT than us.. sets off a defense mechanism and eventual hostility. Violence. Hatred.

it makes us ‘Anti-species’. It  makes us go against our very own kind, to fight each other, and at times, to the Death. For what? an intangible ideology, most likely created through Social expectations (intangible), or even outright imagination (also intangible).

Many animals do the very same thing, however, these Animals also don’t have the capacity of Reason and Introspective thought we have. we do, and we continue to hold each other back, kill each other, and what convinces or plagues us to do this? Ego.

The Ego eventually becomes it’s own entity within your mind in a way, a spiritual parasite. It can actually begin to hurt you physically if you go against it yourself.

Don’t believe me? Try this.

If you are an egotistical person, you probably are: A) mostly Negative B) easily Defensive/ Irritable C) In love with yourself, not in a good way (Narcissistic) D) Your beliefs are the only ones that are “true” or “valid” E) You’re denying that you are any of these things.

For the benefit of the doubt, for those reading that aren’t run by their Ego, good for you. Stay Neutral my friends, you are VERY rare.

Everyone else.. try this..

Its very simple. Just go against your own thoughts, turn them into positive ones .. ALL DAY LONG.. That’s it.  cross a homeless man? Dont think of him as disgusting, think of him as a person paying for bad choices, or down on his luck that can and WILL get himself out of it and become a productive human being in the future. .you get the picture. Not only say these things in your head ALL DAY, for EVERY thought, but truly BELIEVE what you are saying… Think of every Human being as a distant cousin, that you care for, as this is not far from the Truth.

By 3pm none of you are going to have any energy left, and you are all going to have headaches and feel ill to the stomach. You are killing the ‘parasite’.

Read Ekhart Tolles “The Power of NOW” for a more detailed view into the Ego, how to identify and eventually defeat it. I read it when I was 18, and set me off into the spiritual path I am now.

The Ego is real. It is the plague that swarms the Human inside of us and allows us to commit the terrible atrocities we have been capable of.

Children show us that Humanity is Love, they are Love, because they are pure Human, because they haven’t yet created and have been taken over by their Ego. If you know a kid, have a kid, watch and observe the creation of the Ego as you watch them grow up, and guide them from that dark path. Lets begin to break the chains of Evil through changing ourselves and our Children by showing Understanding, Compassion, and Love.  I’m keeping a spiritual eye out for my 7 year old Sister, I want to help her build emotional and mental defenses based on Love not on Fear.

In order to change the world we need to go from ‘Service to Self’ to ‘Service to Others’.

Or continue to watch our Planet, and our Species, dwindle away into eventually becoming merely another chapter in the Endless book of Time.

Emotions: Humanities’ path to Extinction?

Human beings seem to be naturally fascist creatures. It is only by those few enlightened individuals that have surpassed the perceptive crutch of emotion that can see above the water, out to the surface, and point us to the nearest island for safety and continuity, that have come together to create a logical system that will launch humanity into prosperity and potential world peace.
The rest of us however, the majority of us, are burdened with unconsciously utilizing emotion where rationality is asked of the situation. We will go against our own doctrine, our own belief systems, if our emotional state is threatened, interrupted or insulted. The emotional state of a human being ranges in a full spectrum, however there are only a number of things that make up our emotional state, or should I say, what influences our emotional state: Perception, Ego, and Emotion itself, caused by the enhancement or interference of any of these 3 “pre-set” categories is what influences what we experience on a day to day, moment to moment basis.
If we were to live in a society that places Emotional mastery as a top priority in our schools, we would have seen Scientific and medical advancements we can’t even fathom to date, possible religious peace through absolute tolerance, a nonexistent homicide rate, and a stable World economy (Monetary/ resourceful), all in an estimated 3-4 generations after we had begun to teach these courses to our teenage children.
Humans are creatures of Emotion, therefore if our Emotions are unstable; by default we are unstable, seeing as we are what we feel, because how we feel influences what we do, and what we do, determines who we are. It’s a domino effect that starts from within.
Take a look at our World today. Look around. It has a range of fluctuations in terms of stability or instability and ranges from completely stable, to completely unstable. For the areas of the world that are considered to be unstable, let’s look at what’s’ really going on; These areas usually have an unstable economy, no jobs to circulate the little money the economy has, therefore there is a shortage of resources, which in turn cause desperation and greed, which therefore causes violence, hatred, and apathy. The emotions are unstable. We can argue that the emotional state of the people have been artificially altered into instability, that no matter what your beliefs are or how you perceive the world, scarcity makes one desperate and therefore frantic and ,well, unstable, one could argue this and it would be a valid argument. However, if we look deeper, we can see that the culprit truly is the emotional dependency we have on our own emotions. If the people of that country were to have the mental strength to put their emotions aside, there would be no panic, no riots, no violence, there would be rational beings, setting aside their differences for the continuity of the people in the affected area, working towards a solution. We would band together and not fall victim to our personally programmed perception of the situation. Since we all act out on our own perception of the situation, in any given situation, we act differently and never in unity, because no 2 perceptions are ever the same. This is the opposite of unity, and as a species, the opposite of advancement, therefore, paving the way to our self-inflicted demise.
There is also the other side of the spectrum that’s’ just as bad, if not worse. Emotional mastery does not mean to ignore your emotions and view the world through left-brained lenses, because this is what causes people to be okay with profiting off of the unstable economies of other countries which in turn create the first group burdened with emotional upheaval. This is the portion of the species that are considered to be emotionless. People that are fully analytical and see nothing but calculations, with no regard for the well being and continuity of their species as a whole. This goes without saying, could be the worst side of the spectrum. Emotional instability has 2 ranges as we have discussed; 1) Too much emotion/ Emotional overload that fogs the situation for what it is and inhibits our ability to rationalize on a solution. However, the emotional franticness is usually caused by the underlying fear that the ones we Love will be without, or in danger, as well as ourselves, that makes the emotion go on overload. Desperation is the tipping point. Nonetheless, this side of the spectrum is caused by the fear for others in mind. 2) Emotional detachment/ Lack of empathy or valid human connection is the second side of the spectrum. These are the people that think only for the self, without anyone else in mind. These people seem to always hold positions of power, but it is not the position that has detached them from the whole, but the fact that they have (by their perception or programming) no emotion, that has led them to those positions because they will do what it takes to get what they want, even if it means hurting many people in the process. In the United States we live in a nation that favors these people, appoints these people as major CEO’s and Executives because they will do what it takes to meet the quarterly/ annual profit quotas. Just because someone’s rich, doesn’t mean that they are “doing it right”, one must take consideration the type of Society we live in before they say that just because someone is in a favorable position, it automatically means that their way is the way. This is why people say we live in a sick Society, Emotionally Sick. The key is moderation. Everything in moderation. Emotional Mastery means to use Rationality and Emotion with a 50/50 ratio. To control the left brain when it makes the heart numb, and to rationalize the situation when emotions fog the reality.
I hope I live to see the day that the common people urge Emotional Mastery to be placed in our schools curriculum. Jealousy, Greed, and selfishness are by-products of Emotional neglect or overload. The reason it won’t be added to schools, unless there is a revolution, is because the individuals void of emotion, calculate how to overload the emotion of those with emotion, for profit. Sports, Pop culture, News and Media, food, vehicles, sex and drugs are all here to give you an emotional overload, for what you ask? Besides profit, possibly ignorant enslavement through emotion. As long as you are distracted you do not interfere with their ‘calculations’, and since they have no emotion, they will never be satisfied, so they want more and more, never filling the void, because fulfillment is an emotion, an emotion they’ll never feel, so it seems like they take and take without giving anything back. Does this not sound like our current World system? As long as the common folk have their World cups, and over stimulating food and drink on a daily basis that temporarily fill our emotional voids for the time being they will be okay. The “overly-emotionized” majority potion of our species is satisfied quickly but for a short time, so they need small constant overloads, therefore they indulge in small but frequent vices and stimulants on a daily basis, running Life’s’ trail on a treadmill, always moving, always out of breathe, but never making any real progress. Whereas the emotionally cold are never satisfied, the powerful emotionless will do as they please because so long as they give us our petty indulgences we stay out of their way. The emotionally cold are running lifes path, surpassing those on the treadmills, they are on lifes’ trail, but they are never satisfied, so when they hit lifes finish line (not death, but fulfillment) it wont be good enough, therefore they run the race over and over, laughing at the individuals on treadmills, the treadmill people wishing they were the runners, unknowing that neither are getting anywhere. We’re all looking for something, but how we look for it determines the person we are, the life we live.
The day I see Humanity include Emotional Mastery classes in our High schools, is the day that I will finally say I have true hope for the future of the Human race. Until then, we will be slaves to our own emotions, therefore slaves to instability, and in turn, residents of an unstable World.

“Socrates once told of why he isn’t afraid of death. He says that death is merely the seperation of the soul from the body. It is ones own judgement of any particular situation that creates Love or Fear for a situation. I agree with this completely. Perspective: plays such a huge role in our Lives. Look around you, to your left, to the sky, everything we see has a lable, and that lable a definition, a defenition is the ‘act of defining something’, of making that thing, more Human. Yet, if you were to, say, ask someone what Love means, I’m certain you will receive a different answer everytime. Perspective literally creates your entire reality. This is one of Humanities greatest Powers aside from Love and Evil. Its the ability to Perceive and mold the World into your liking without having to mold and shape the physical World around you. It is an internal process. It can’t be seen with the naked eye, we can’t tell what eachother sees yet our actions and decisions are based around that perspective, therefore the entire course of our Lives are directly affected by our Perspective. For what else dictates the path of our lives other than our decisions and Actions? Which are controlled by Perspective. World perspective is what created Hitler and Mother Teresa, General Lee and Abraham Lincoln. The entire story of our History is nothing more but the recollections of the perspectives of one Man at a time. Change your Perception to where, death is nothing more but the seperation of Soul and Body. The death of a Loved one was something out of your control, give thanks for the priviledge of creating the few memories but respect Nature and the Nature of things. You are above no one, so get rid of the Ego and of Vanity and see everyone as an equal despite their Social or Financial status, we breathe the same Air, we walk the same Earth, we come from a Womb and die in a Tomb. We bleed and hurt the same. The sky is the Sky, the air is the Air. Let it be, let yourself Be. Want things to happen as they do happen not as you wish for them to happen and you will finally know what it is like to be in a constant state of inner Peace.”

“Your Life doesn’t consist of them and there.. we are all connected yes, connected to one another through everything. We push for individualism but to be individual is to be unique, to be unique is to be different, to be different is to be segregated from the whole. Every organism that has triumphed the tests of Evolution has done so with the entire Organism operating as One. Yet Humanity, strives to be Unique, to be different from one another, even though we understand that to be different is to be Alone. What do we call a species that has only one of its kind left? Endangered to be Extinct. Why does Humanity, through Personality, strive to single himself out as somehow better or different from the rest? Why does Man strive to become Extinct? There is nothing wrong with Self-Expression, as a matter of fact it is encouraged. However, when that Self-Expression evolves into Ego and shuns those that are different from us, that express themselves differently from us, that is when the Self-Extinction begins.. yes ‘Self Extinction’, because we are all One.Whether you like it or believe it or not makes no difference to what is an Absolute Truth. Absolute Truth does not change with majority or lack of belief. . Together we Stand, Divided we Fall.. or Divided we Stand… Together we Fall… its really up to you.. however, this takes me back to finish what I’ve started… Your Reality. Is what is directly in front of You. In your Face. Dont worry about what is going on in the Media or around the World. Your Reality consists of what’s directly in front of you, your neighborhood, Friends, Family.. that is a reflection of Your Psyche.. let the World be.. focus on making YOUR surroundings a better, happier place… if we all did this individually, focus on making our immediate surroundings a better place, we’d all be working as a Single Oganism. This is the Key to World Peace. Focus on YOU, for the betterment of ALL.”

Your Life doesn’t..
