This blog is an excerpt from my new book which aims to spread awareness about how suffering spreads as an energy transfer with focus on sympathy or anger .
For a tree of peacefulness, good health and happiness to grow, instead; mind training needs to be given to dissolve the negative energy stuck on roots of thinking.
The core focus on constantly searching for “What is Missing “, is fertilized as a seed of negative thinking which leads to the development of a tree of negative thinking that grows with several branches of ‘what is missing’ in every area of life. Children conditioned into thinking negatively remain dis-satisfied in every sphere of life in adulthood. The seed of thought is fertilized by constant repetition of the same feeling of focusing on what is missing with an obligation for a need to improve.
Once negative thinking spreads from a suffering individual to mass consciousness, from micro to macro levels, it multiplies suffering for all .A negative focus of thinking, leads to inherent corruption, dis-satisfaction as the dominating internal focus , criticism of optimism, impatience, fear of losing fame or surface reputation, complaining attitudes, and mass aggression in the form of terrorisms and wars. As the inner disharmony surfaces up, individual bodies face diseases/abuse and the planet Earth throws up suppressed negative energy to restore its inner positive balance in the form of floods, epidemics or violence.
As the dirt shows up on the surface, the authorities desperately seek to erase the dismal picture without looking into the cause, which arises from the roots of the educational system. .
A sustained focus on the need to improve physical accomplishments at the cost of sacrifice of inner understanding, which begins in childhood as a side-effect of the general focus on ‘what is missing ‘, leads to development of greed overruling need, in adulthood as the mind-set that seeks continuous improvements moves to a cycle of greed which redefines ‘need’ as an endless, disproportionate craving for more. Greed leads to restlessness, obesity, alcoholism and corruption which lead to rising frustrations and anger in mass consciousness.
Instead of correcting flaws in the educational structure, there is a search for Who to blame when conflicts escalade. Subsequently, the visible flaws of government policies, terrorists and criminals are blamed almost as arbitrarily, as famines are blamed for lack of water supply.
Metaphorically, just as the primitive man passed responsibility of every problem on the rains, in the modern day, the government policies of the day are conveniently blamed for all unrest in society while individuals escape responsibility. However, the government as a macro unit, reflects the problems faced by individuals as micro units.
Once the individual mind’s dominant vibrational point is set on an energy cycle of being negative & restless, governments cannot control violence by sweeping dirt from the surface. Peacefulness is eroded by focusing on negative aspects of life and complaining about injustice, without understanding that there is virus in the roots of behavior.
Children learn more by imitation of adult behavior than preaching. Since domestic violence, bullying, abuse or threats, continue as tools for teaching children , violence in adulthood or bullying is an accepted norm when these children grow up to be leaders. Economic dominance is used to threaten other nationalities because it is traditionally assumed that competition is necessary as Earth is a scarcely resourced planet, wherein bullying & monopolization help to survive.
Logical methods of reasoning are ignored as violence and competition offer faster methods of achieving an outcome, even though it does not change inner mind-sets to positive. Criminals and terrorists are created because there is an inherent belief that competitive violence helps in instilling obedience. Wars are planned for by competing armies, being maintained at the cost of sacrifice of emotional/ human development.
Even entertainment in the modern world revolves around competitive sports, competitive dance programs and the paradigm of defeating the weak. People waste hours to relax by watching cricket and soccer matches because the hormonal ups and downs created by competitive situations, work as addictions. There can be far greater relaxation created if the same amount of time and energy was invested on meditation, sleeping or just being in a peaceful or positive state of neutral detachment. Relaxing the sense organs helps in improving health and happiness while watching sports or eating junk foods have negative effects on being peaceful or healthy. Yet, the war games are created and cultivated by adults enjoying the virtual emotional killing as happens in video games.
The same war mind-set spreads to real life from the sports field, and creates religious fights, terrorism and crime thrills. The more criminals and terrorists are killed, the more they get created further as the focus of individual thinking remains on enjoying competition.
The abusers who exert negative power to win success, feel most anxious, bitter and unhealthy themselves. However, abuse continues to rule as competitive success is glorified – be it negatively exerted or positively responsible. Just as children get away by obtaining good marks through cheating, adults get away by obtaining power by side-lining ethics and betraying mass welfare.
There is no distinction made between negative power and positive power as minds are conditioned during childhood by the educational structure which does not teach a distinction between positive power ( success with understanding , satisfaction and happiness ) and negative power (success without contentment which reduces peacefulness or happiness).
A balanced mind would aim at addressing both spiritual and material needs so that happiness and health improve in self and others; but a competitive mind aims at success even if the pursuit deteriorates health and peace of mind for self and everyone involved.
