If I had decided to write this through thousands of words on hundreds of pages, attempting to portray every single one of my perceptions and intuitions onto something solely material, the reality is that majority of people would most likely read one paragraph into the piece before becoming too impatient to continue on. If I were to have done that, I’d be living in ignorance. Ignorant to the facts. I cannot expect to throw out all of the intelligence and intuitions I have without taking the facts into account, and believe that my words will be authentically heard. If I were to do that, it would be ironic. It would be exemplary of the problem that the piece itself will be discussing. That problem is pure ignorance. It is vital to note for the sake of the human mind, that this ignorance spoken of is never truly someone’s or something’s fault. Ignorance happens naturally throughout fear. Fear is rooted in many of the things we are familiar with; religion and politics are perfect illustrations for those familiarities. Both concepts are commonly seen and practiced; they act as a foundation for the basis of life, for some of us. All created from fear. We humans are the only species known to be capable of hyper-awareness of our own existence. If one were to know anything about the human mind, it should be that our species is generally incapable of accepting the unknown, especially relating to our very existence itself. We must create something, anything, that “gives life meaning”, since we do not have a materialistic explanation-something that all of us would be familiar with and could agree upon. That is where the concepts of religion, politics, and other ideas come into play. It feels imperative for us to fabricate various theories and notions such as said religion and politics, because otherwise we are left in the dark realm of only the unknown, which we have not been able handle. There are copious examples throughout the beginning of time up until the present which support that. I will not be going through them all. However, I am undoubtedly sure that if you are curious and thirsty for more information, there is most definitely an internet search engine out there that is full of them. To begin to connect the dots throughout everything I have said here, it makes sense to say that if we are consistently succumbing to our fear, we are simultaneously exercising ignorance. Fear can equal avoidance. Avoidance will be accompanied by suppression. Avoidance and suppression will equal ignorance. Therefore, fear will always be on one side of the equation and ignorance, (or acceptance) will be on the opposite side, depending on the math in between. Acceptance of fear is the goal, as it will result in a leap in the magnitude of one’s strength and depth. These are simple facts that apply from the broadest end of the spectrum, like the “meaning of life”, all the way down to the most specific ends of the spectrum, like an individual’s relationship with personal trauma, and how it affects their ability to exist. Both fear and ignorance need to be recognized and honored, that is the only way that we can get to our objective-acceptance.
