What we have been experiencing economically and socially is a result of the paradigm on which we are operating. As this paradigm is the foundation of the system and policies under which we live, it is essential that we identify and understand exactly what it is. Unless we first identify and then change that paradigm people will continue to experience ever increasing hardship and struggle. Stagnation decline and eventual collapse will be assured without a fundamental change as a result of a new consciousness.
Our country and its economy are being destroyed by the politics of negativity. We are now under government by, for and of the negative. Not a good thing. A destructive thing. It is an enormous drag on our economy. It is the obstacle to growth, expansion, prosperity, and progress. It is well established that a negative mindset and outlook is the formula for failure, stagnation and decline.
If we continue with this negativity, then we can expect an expanding experience of poverty, struggle and hardship. If we continue with this negativity, then stagnation, decline and eventual collapse are inevitable. If we reject this loser operating system then the sky is the limit. If we embrace the focus of the winner, then growth, progress and prosperity will follow. (The irony is that more and more people are realizing that a positive outlook is essential to success, growth, prosperity and happiness. There is ever increasing evidence and support for the idea that a positive, appreciative outlook is the foundation of success and growth. Indisputable. Yet when it comes to government and politics the same people, who recognize and apply this dynamic in their own lives this dynamic are all in for the negative.)
Whereas the negative approach, mindset, focus, consciousness is counterproductive at the very least. And whereas the positive is positive, that is, productive, life affirming and conducive to success, growth and progress. There can only be one and only one explanation for all the crises, problems and hardship: The Poison of Negativity. And the only solution has to be a 180 degree turn to the positive winner approach.
Over the past few decades government policy has become increasingly about the negative. We have thrown and still continue to throw trillions of dollars into the black hole of the negative. And to compound this suicidal folly of warring against the negative, we are also attacking the positive. With this lose-lose operating system it is a wonder that we have not already collapsed. This is only because there are still people who live their personal lives on an operating system of positive focus.
The drag, the obstacle that we are facing is an expanding negative focus. If cursing the darkness is foolish, and it is, then conducting an aggressive war against darkness is insanity itself. Light exists while darkness is only the perceived relative nonexistence of light. That is why cursing, struggling against, or working to exterminate darkness is utter nonsense, counterproductive and even dangerous. For decades the U. S. government has increasingly fought a war against darkness to the detriment of our economy, our society and our culture. Poverty is another avatar of darkness. It does not exist. Poverty is the negative, negation or nonexistence of having and as such does not exist. Poverty is the perceived relative nonexistence of wealth. As nonexistence does not exist, the nonexistence of wealth does not exist. Attempting to wipe out or diminish poverty is utter insanity. A total waste of effort and resources.
YOU CANNOT DESTROY A NEGATIVE. The negative is the nonexistence of something or other and nonexistence does not exist. The negative does not exist. It is only a concept in the mind, a product of the ego. Since the negative does not exist attempting to destroy it is foolish and can actually be dangerous. A man is confronted by a ferocious bear. He shoots at the bear. The bullet stops the bear. And the bear stops the bullet. Success! The man saves himself and perhaps others. A totally different scenario: the crazed bear exists only in the man’s mind. He shoots. At the very least he wasted a bullet. Then there is the question of what his bullet did hit as there was no bear to stop it. Perhaps a tree. Or maybe it went the distance and dropped to the ground. Of course, here are other horrific possibilities which there are no need to mention.
In this way warring against the nonexistent, the negative, is wasteful and dangerous. Long term destruction is guaranteed. Another affect is that the war against the imagined only enhances the experience of that thing that does not exist. A man thinks he sees a little green man outside his window in the shadows of dusk. Not really there of course. He laughs it off and goes about his business. Another less sensible man has the same experience. His neighbors are not quite so lucky. He takes up his shotgun against the imaginary enemy. Shot is flying everywhere. What will he destroy? What will he kill?
The second man’s experience of his minds creation intensifies as he escalates his reactions to it. The first man forgets about his mind’s creation and the unpleasant experience is short-lived. Battling against or even worrying about not ferocious bear or not little green is insanity itself. The essence of insanity is imagining what’s not there. Voices, people, monsters, green extraterrestrials, crazed bears, whatever.
Two important facts: The more you struggle against a perception of nonexistence, the greater and more prolonged experience of that nonexistence. Actively fighting the nonexistent is always wasteful and usually destructive. You cannot destroy the nonexistent so your bullets, whether literal or figurative, will inevitably find some target.
We as a country have been experience more and more hardship, struggle, poverty and crises because of our negativity, our perceptions of nonexistence. Over the past few decades we have waged an unprecedented war against the nonexistent. We have thrown trillions of dollars, largely borrowed dollars!, into a war against poverty. Poverty is all about not having. It is the negation of having. Poverty is the perceived relative absence, nonexistence or lack of wealth.
Poverty consciousness, consciousness of the negative, has been steadily increasing over the past few decades. There was a time when poverty meant not having food or a roof over your head. Then it came to mean not having what most others have, or not having the latest and the best. There are now those pushing the idea that anybody who is not in the top one percent is poor and oppressed. Expanding negativity. And this has come to be viewed as the morally superior outlook rather than being an advocate of darkness.
Darkness does not exist. There is only light. Darkness is the perceived relative lack of light. Even though darkness does not exist it is perceived by people in darkness (which does not exist!) Poverty is an avatar of darkness. Wealth is real. Poverty is the ego’s judgment of “not enough”. Judge not lest you be judged. And we, as a nation, certainly are living our judgment of struggle and hardship.
We as a nation are drowning in an increasing negativity consciousness. This is a trend that started several decades ago and has been accelerating over recent years. Government policy has necessarily been based on the dominant consciousness. With predictable results. A negative outlook will always produce stagnation, failure, decline and, if left to run its course, collapse.
Many would blame Obama. Obama is not the cause But rather the symptom. He is the perfect expression of the dominant consciousness which elevated him to power. He is the outcropping of the negative poverty and hardship consciousness. His policies are the perfect expression of the lack and poverty consciousness that has progressively spread over the land over the past few decades. He is all about poverty and lack. All about the negative consciousness rather than the positive appreciation and gratitude mindset.
Success is a function of realizing and appreciating value. Failure is a result of denying or failing to see value. Whining and complaining, that is, judging condemn people to live those judgments.
What is is the way it really is. The isn’t is a product of the human ego.
Observation is power. Judgment is failure.
Appreciate, expand, progress, grow, create, give, love, laugh, smile, enjoy, rejoice.
