There are two levels of Psychological Less — 1 & 2.
Level 1 ‘Less’ is my ability to project an idea that describes some ‘thing’, ‘one’ or ‘aspect’ with reduced features, weight or composition when compared to a snapshot of reality.
I paint a picture of what it means to be ‘less’ thru the only way known, psychological activity — my imagination or ideation.
Generally speaking, the story of ‘less’ tells of an existence that ultimately reduces energy consumption, emission and waste when compared to that of others who share the same environment for the sake of overall sustainability, love and compassion. And if I’m truly dedicated to being minimalistic or optimal, there is no sacrifice as I make it an art. I live a happy and abundant life.
Level 2 ‘Less’ on the other hand, is my ability to end any idea when it is not needed. Rather than simply projecting an idea of less that still carries weight made of conscious sensation & control, or rather than modifying an idea in order to adjust my behaviour to reach the object of less (whatever that may be), my insight defuses the idea altogether — thereby strengthening the next modification to come. Now, can you see the difference between them? In a sense, number two is an interdimensional movement of an insight powering down an idea. Whereas, number one is a continuation of ideas that are modifying and compensating.
Allow me to explain further…
Levels 1 & 2 are both ideas since I need a way of describing this information to you. But the 2nd Level or dimension of the idea is a special idea. In other words, it describes my ability to clear the screen without using the force that comes from more thought processing. Therefore, the eraser is not another idea that gives the illusion of clearing my mind by rubbing out the thicker content inside my thoughts. Rather, it is the process of defusing or dropping all unwanted content from the surface of my mind.
Level 1 Lessing is when I manage the contrast within my thoughts (heavier thoughts → lighter thoughts). Level 2 Lessing is when I manage the contrast against my thoughts (thought processing → non-thought porocessing). In other words, observing Level 2 strengthens Level 1 indirectly by clearing out the clutter!
For example… As internal pressures mount or when an idea no longer serves a practical purpose, I’m able to release that program and free up my energy because I know that nothing else applied directly will be of better help. I know that if I continue refining my thoughts, I will simply lose the quality of greater space.
From psychological activity, I am reduced to a hibernating state of psychological inactivity by allowing energy from another dimension to defuse my thought processing, however long or short the break lasts. Thus I am then recharged from the space in between, and ready to face the next thing that emerges and tries to take over.
