Nature of Mindlessness – The fireflies.
I could go on and on tonight….sorry folks…
Sometimes I wonder if the audience or my neighbor, truly comprehends what mindlessness is – or is not. Mindlessness can be dumb downed to the activity of “not paying attention”. Let’s say you are backing out of a parking space, and you smash into the vehicle behind you. You were mindless, you were not paying attention.
Well, the natural state of affairs is to be mindless. Why would this be the case? It is an evolutionary tendency. It’s very easy to comprehend the logic behind the why’s it so. If the senses, the mind, the psyche has less to entertain – it can better spend its time evaluating direct threats to the individual (Primary), and realize it’s opportunities, both genetic (Fucking) and resource allocation (Survival and subsequent, lower-tiered Materialism)
So basically in layers, we are mindless to our most constant activities. We blink, our heart beats, we breathe, we grasp, we think, we perceive. How many times today did you stop and realize you were doing any of the detailed activities above? I am willing to bet zero. I won’t get into layering as I believe I will lose the crew. Yet, I am sure you can relate to the state of being mindless to constant activities that occur within your personal environment every day of your existence.
Well, I am here to tell you this occurs with other personal activities much more than you know or realize. You don’t just think. You don’t just perceive. You just don’t believe. you just don’t do anything – there are specific progresses and elements involved that all too often go completely unrealized. This is a shitty thing for me to say, yet I feel I must say it. Mostly to nearly all human beings go through their existence never realizing the greatest qualities of life. I haven’t gotten far enough along on my path to hypothesize as to why. I’d like to think we were born mindful, sincere, chuck full of unconditional love for our fellow man – yet look around you, this is hardly the case. I observe primarily, substantially, and overwhelmingly the anti-thesis. I observe dysfunction.
I write, live and express to combat; to fight dysfunction.
I will do my best to impart what I know, knowing full well most of which will be dismissed, cast aside, and eagerly categorized to fit neatly into the personal narrative. I simply do not care. I sincerely and with all my being wish the best for all living creatures, with an especial regard for my brothers and sisters; that is my validation.
I hope this has put the foot into the door of your concept of mindlessness.
I will be writing a shitload on this topic, for some reason I must write rather than waste. Before I continue, ask yourself – on a daily basis – how exactly and specially are you mindless? Be honest and self-courageous. You will surprise yourself.
