Introduction Setup Disc 1: A New Meaning
Introducing Our Newest, Upgraded Mindless Meaning
Now because of the word’s silly background and trickier nature to grasp at the deeper level, you can bet your life that I started well in the red a few years back. However, once I got past all the prejudice and negative connotation, I was able to break the term down into two clear and meaningful pieces of information that I could actually relate to and work with. To clarify, those pieces are ‘the real definition of a Mind in my life’ and ‘to have Less of that’.
But again, my troubles didn’t end as I found myself dealing with another ‘complex’ when trying to stick them together.
The main challenge I faced and always had was a ‘more-ish mind’ that could never get enough, even when it came to the notion of ‘less’. Thus, I would always get caught up when applying less is more wisdom and I would actually end up demanding more of less if that makes sense. I was actually stuck on more by obsessively hunting ideas of less in a roundabout way .
Far out! It’s so easy to make a mess over the desire for less. Let alone, over the desire for anything! Therefore, I soon realised that I was up against a major force, and perhaps the most stubborn of them all… myself!
Fortunately, with great commitment, research and development that led to this platform today, it’s now possible to softly introduce this tacit core idea named ‘mindless’ to an open audience. And what a word to start working on out of all options that I could have chosen from! I surely do know how to pick ’em.
So over a secretively executed campaign stretching on 5 years, whether those around me knew it or not (mostly not), I have now grown some fruit from the mindless tree to share with all of you today. Otherwise, if I had not taken this particular approach via the subconscious mind, then I definitely wouldn’t have ANYTHING worthwhile to offer anyone.
Oh, and how do I get stuck on more ‘lessness’?
Life tells a hundred reasons why less is more is good, and we have all heard them. Overall, it points to less consumption of either physical or psychological energy for the sake of a healthier, caring existence which is its own virtue.
However, if I go ALL IN and exert greater pressures hunting for less (which was my habit all the time), by compulsively chasing down ideas and ideals that describe many variations of ‘less’ attributes, i.e., anything tied in with less energy consumption and less waste (which makes me feel that ‘extra’ special), then it means I’m being my usual more-ish self again. As a result, I’m not getting the CLEARER picture and lessing at the deeper level as I ought to.
Why do I do this?
Because I enjoy the taste of all these ‘ideas of less’, and I stay with the same old up and down pattern. My 3 stage up & down pattern:
- I run a pleasant idea in my mind until it’s dry.
- During sensory exhaustion (at my weakest), my problems now have a chance to return and haunt me through uneasy ideas that were previously suppressed.
- I huff and puff while waiting for more positive input to refuel my mind, thus returning me to stage 1 and creating an endless loop.
Here’s My Same Old Pattern Hiding Behind A Modern Day Revolution
However, as I became more and more aware of this funny business of ‘less being juicy’ that I loved soaking in, by watching my inner demands grab and chew up any ‘words’, ‘images’ or ‘symbols’ that were filled with an appealing quality, let’s call it the appeal quality for short , my life changed in a way that it never knew before.
By finally recognising these areas where I would stockpile my most valued or treasured thoughts/ideas, which by this stage of my life contained a desirable description of ‘less’ in a Modern-Day Revolution, it meant my world was about to become strong. It was because I could clearly see my same old pattern cleverly operating behind another diversion which activated something deep.
Whereas previously, when I hadn’t seen myself in mental-action this profoundly, I would continue to portray my cherished idea at certain times only. Either, when the camera faced my way or when I was due for a change in scenery from a negative to a positive! So on a strict schedule, I lived as a ‘less’ or ‘minimalist part-timer’ simply because I couldn’t help myself. Soon, my more-ish mind took over (as it does once the ideas deflate) and it demanded more of anything in sight by hunting for the appeal quality again (which can’t be found in ‘less’ until it has time and fuel to re-inflate).
I behaved differently throughout the day because my up and down life eventually craved for MORE — more ideas and ideals. Even if they were dressed up in ‘less’!
Too Deep, Too Fast?
So by gently unfolding what I consider Mindless Related Activity (explained further on…), I will serve out only one small spoonful at a time to you using the most subtle translations in all languages. Because I found that by dishing up too big a scoop, or by giving out too many mindless servings at once, I risk resistance and alienation, and my efforts will get viewed as weirdly backwards.
Or I will veer far, far away from the good new Level 2 type that I am trying my best to convey.
Deep down, I know that if I’m not discreet and gentle in my tactics over the long term with something I feel so strongly about or alive in, then I won’t achieve any common ground by FORCING my way of thinking down your throat, especially since it is all very odd! I have seen this style in action many times, and I naturally ignore whoever they are and whatever they serve.
