Hamlet was right…..
‘Thus conscience does make cowards of us all` (1609)
Fear follows conscience?
What possibilities do we have… we stand and look… know what is the right thing but … scared as a rabbit who looks into a cars lights you paralyze….
Throw up the phone, turn off the radio, shut people up….so run away from insecurity…
Do you know that you waste away your life if you in a schizoid manner provoking yourself in persisting in hiding from any kind of consciousness?
Do you jam your internal dialogue with music, moving pictures, opposite affirmations.
We live in a Greek-Christian reality, at least here in the west, a very much Value based world.
All the virtuous of the Greek and Roman Gods dwell in your mind as you were largely raised searching for the perfect human being in a certain value.
Christianity added the feeling of guild and there we have Hamlet again as Shakespeare brilliantly showed that even after life you might be punished.
There insecurity is born as being an enemy.
The problem with schizoid behavior is that it might turn into cognitive dissonance at a level that will dictate your life without you being your true self
What is important?
That your intention and attention are aligned.
That if possible you are honest and react and respond in the moment. Confront yourself and others without hurting
Let me put is simple: if you eat something that your body does not like… you puke.. and out it goes.
So you will avoid it. As you will avoid things that are other than conditioned.
Other than you have been conditioned…
often… you need to get used to it
Your body, mind and soul are made for development. With development comes responsibility. Being able to face up to the consequences of your behavior.
Do not punish the wrong people.
We are living in a Mediacracy and largely do not know anymore what to believe.
The ‘hero’ salon revolutionists in the media are playing their role. Never ever take them serious. That is nothing new, From Plato, to Smith, from Hobbes to Keynes.. all suggestions not reality. See it as role playing.
Be playful and joyful. Focus on love. Do not go gently into the sweet night….
Face it that insecurity, in conversations and openness will make you grow…
You can only be sure enough to be insecure of you commit to learning and growing.
Sometimes that is facing that you need to find other ways and behavior to be loving responsible
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’ oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
75That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
80The undiscovered country from whose
No traveler returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
85And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.—Soft you now,
90The fair Ophelia!—Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remembered.
