Harmful Threats C.8.24

The power in threats is only when they are received and accepted. A threat has no power if no one hears it and that is what makes it sticky is how it is accepted.

Threats come in many packages. They can be perceived in an illness. Sometimes a person can go about their business for years not knowing they carry a sickness. But when they are told very often their reaction is what makes it harmful or not.

I remember some years ago I started an email account – the free variety. I gave out my contact email to many people at the time. After about a year I could not get into my account and eventually it forced me to open another account. During that time I did mix with what some people would call the wrong crowd but I was going through one of those bumps in life’s road. It wasn’t until many years later and a different living location I stumbled across some papers I had stored in a box during one of my many moves. In the box was an old piece of paper with the details of the old email account I had some years back. Just for the heck of it I tried to open the account again and the password I used worked. I don’t know why the account failed me so long ago perhaps I was typing the wrong password, but now I could get into it.

What surprised me the most was the account was not automatically closed, as I thought it would but rather it remained active. Well to my astonishment there was a lot of correspondence unopened for me. The funny thing is there was one constant threat from one particular person who remained anonymous and in it was threatening.

The person must have thought I was ignoring the threat and decided to get dirtier with their words. I have to laugh now because if I had read it at that time I would have probably been very worried and taken the threats seriously. But because I did not read them until many years later the threats no longer held any value. I have no idea if this person used their power to dirty my name to the other party but now it all seems rather comical.

The point is a threat has no power if there is no audience. A threat has no power unless it is received and accepted. A threat can be received but not accepted as this lesson has taught me. Therefore the power of threats is only in the mind of the vulnerable receiver otherwise like this old email account it falls away to nothing and becomes a story to tell many years later.

Never be taken by threats of any sort.

Fun Moments C.8.23

Life should be a balance. A balance of work and play. I don’t think anyone on their death bed regrets not working longer and harder but rather not spending more fun time.

I have this method of an hour of nonsense per day. This is an hour of fun and of course if my whole day is fun than better still.

We need a dose of fun in our lives and we need to have it for a bit each and every day. So put aside a time for fun even if it is only to watch something silly on the TV or to be a bit over the top with your dog or cat.

Having fun should be a major component of living because life should not be only about work because by the end of our day and our time on our death bed we should be remembering the fun times we had.

Enjoy each day with a bit of fun, you will never regret it and actually it will make you feel very much alive.

Confusion C.8.22

Life is not an easy path to travel and constant confusion of the world around us occurs. I often step out and think to myself am I melding with my surroundings? I consider myself to have an alert and clear head but even so I experience moments of confusion. It is in those nano moments of confusion I get to understand how some people live this way most of their lives.

Confusion use to be the ailment of the older person but there are as many younger people who become confused. To be confused in a moment draws in the mixture of all ages.

I think one of the most important points to remember is when you feel the moment of confusion know that it is experience by everyone at some point in their lives. It is a moment and is attributed to our brain function in a slight miss for a bit.

Don’t become worried if you have a moment of confusion but rather understand we all experience this from time to time. When confusion becomes a medical condition than the signs are more obvious and more pronounced so in the meantime know you are among the majority.

Superstitions C.8.21

The forces of superstition are very real not because they are true but because they are believed in.

A lot of people place their ideas into myths and ideas preached to them but none of these ideals are true.

My late aunt was a very superstitious woman. She believed in the curse of breaking a mirror, of placing shoes on the table and a great runner for bad luck superstitions.

Superstitions are a state of mind, a power of suggestion but the down side is that it can affect a person so much it can become real. There are many people driven by mythological superstitions.

The world is what you see in front of you so make the most of it and don’t introduce anything mystical which taints the beauty of the world.

Afterlife C.8.20

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you think there is an afterlife? The interesting point within these two questions is that there are thousands of people promoting themselves as experts in this field.

No one has ever died and returned to confirm such a hypotheses as life after death. I mean no one including any well promoted religious figures including Jesus of the first century.

Too many people are misleading by uneducated or unproven thinking. You may think my words are harsh but no my words are logical.

I once experience a long time ago what is now called out of body experience and it took me numerous years to realise or rather learn that for me to have such an experience I was not dead in the first place but rather my brain was in a state of predeath because if I had truly been dead then I would have not returned.

The true measure of death has been misdiagnosed on many occasions giving seemingly unusual events which with all appearances seem death.

Death has been accepted when the heart stops but even in those circumstances the brain is still active so therefore when is the point of death.

Once rigor mortis has set in no one has returned to life. Many people have been in the state of death but has this been misdiagnosed because once the body breaks down completely from rigor mortis then that is a final state.

Sadly death is death and instead of trying to bring back a life which is gone instead treasure the memory of the life once lived.

What If C.8.19

What if or wish I had… syndrome is a common regret. Too often we live our life in the thought of what if I had done things differently. We should never live in the past for in the past we made choices which suited us at the time. Even if we toyed with a variety of ideas and still made what we considered later a wrong choice, nevertheless it was a choice of the moment.

We should not live by what if or I wish I had done this or that but rather accept that we are human and are prone to decide upon things that later we fail to accept. Regret is an ugly place to be and rather than dwelling in the past allow yourself to let go of the not so happy decisions and move on.

I could probably fill a book with all my regrets but at the end of the day I wonder if I had my time over again if I would not make the same choices again.

Let us be content with our choices and know that what we decide today regardless of how learned we are and cautious – we can still fall down the same rabbit hole of regret.

So let’s not think about yesterday it is done and gone but rather focus on today and our future.

Circumstances C.8.18

We all live different lives and circumstances surrounding our world shape the way we make decisions and live our lives.

Everyone perceives the world differently and our own personal circumstances in a way dictate the many choices we make.

Circumstances can make us make rash and illogical choices and sometimes a relaxed circumstance can help us make calculated decisions.

Always remember depending on the circumstances we live within this will very often determine the choices we make.

There is no correct choice only circumstances which often drive our thinking.

Feel confident in every turn of your life because it is circumstances which make our world more exciting.
