Recently I inserted an image, shown below, on a sort of science minded community, this image and the attached message got quite a response as you could imagine. What I didn’t expect, to such a huge degree, was the aggressive response I got and how some people had preconceptions about such an image shown on their community.
A lot of these people had a preconceived idea of me already as I have posted on this site a number of times before. I did however think they would see the actual message in this image but because of their preconceived ideologies of spiritually aware people they totally missed this message.
What happened was they first focused on the message itself after obviously taking notice of the image; it made no sense to them that if someone couldn’t perceive evil how they wouldn’t see evil. My argument was of course how would anyone who didn’t know what evil was or couldn’t perceive evil see evil!! This made no sense to them except for a few people. I should say here that the post was liked by five members of this community and two of these five people shared the said image.
The next thing they focused on was the word evil itself, which in this case was an obvious metaphor because you could quite easily replace evil with bad or negative for example. They couldn’t again see this because of the preconceptions they had about me and the post image showing what they deemed as Lucifer and Jesus battling it out. It would seem that is all they could see.
Being logically minded people, you would have thought they would have loved this because in a way it was showing how some spiritually aware people demonise traits like the ego which shows they are of this evil intent in away but they didn’t, they seemed to totally miss this.
The message actually had a double meaning, depending on the way we perceive what the image was depicting. These people, sadly enough, took it as Lucifer and Jesus fighting for control but like some other spiritually people pointed out, it’s two polarities or opposing forces coming together as one to give balance which was represented by the clenching of hands. Perceiving the image like this changed the meaning of the message underneath to perceiving no evil, there can’t be any perception of evil once two become one in unison.
Becoming the observer, especially through psychological understanding, gives one a weird picture of not just oneself but everyone, everyone’s short falls popup. One should be aware, while being an observer, not to actually judge but observe. How can one observe and not judge in some way? This is simple, don’t see a wrong or right within others and especially yourself while observing yourself and also see everyone of being of you. You are actually only observing one person in it’s many different forms. Being aware of our many different forms isn’t judgement and it certainly not destructive judgement but just being aware through observation of all ourselves.
Some of the behaviour I observed was from my other selves seemed quite unbecoming to me but it wasn’t wrong, actually they displayed quite understandable reaction towards me. I suppose we could do without the cussing and name calling, I’ve never been called autistic before, that’s a first, it’s usually liar, delusional, dumb etc. which they also used but never autistic before. Are my other selves wrong in doing this? It doesn’t show much intelligence and it’s not polite but it’s not wrong especially when you take into consideration I was an obvious threat to my other selves in some way otherwise they wouldn’t have reacted in this way.
To me it’s important to be aware of my other selves; spiritually awareness after all is about being aware, how else can I help my other selves!! Did I help them? Psychologically looking at this, yes I would say I did, maybe not consciously to them but certainly subconsciously. The reason I think this is because of their interactions within me and their actions against me, the unbecoming behaviour was actually a good sign that I was hitting a nerve which the subconscious will think on unbeknownst to their conscious selves. Most people will just look at this behaviour as either wrong and/or unbecoming but actually it was a very good response.
Preconceptions aren’t just of the domain of science, it’s in everything we feel, think and do no matter what ideological view we abide by. We are very good at predetermining with very little awareness and is a typical human trait that we need to be aware can be quite disruptive and destructive if not checked. The best way is to believe it just is what it is at this present within our understanding and that there could be something more.
This brings me to preconceiving while only deductively reasoning. Deductive reasoning used on it’s own will give us predetermining factors however if we used adductive or inductive reasoning with deductive reasoning the predetermining factors is diminished because these two reasoning process give us theories to look further beyond a predetermined factor. My other selves on this site seem to only use deductive reasoning so how were they going to understand me in what I was saying which they obviously didn’t?
It is good to be aware of this if we want to help others not of our own frequencies, if not, it’s a good idea to just believe it just is what it is at this present within our understanding, nothing else…
PS I should also say, by helping others out I am helping myself out as well, this discussion made me a fair bit more aware of my other selves which can only be a good thing….
