A New Meaning

To successfully replace the lifelong meaning of Mindlessness (ignorance and carelessness) with something strong and sensible, we’ll have to go slow.

My Journey Into Lessing

Connecting in a new way.

Because of its shady background and trickier nature to grasp at the deeper level, you can bet your life that I started well in the red when first trying to work with the word Mindless. However, once I got past all the prejudice and negative connotations, I was able to break Mindless down into two clear and meaningful pieces of information that I could relate to and work with. To clarify, those pieces are ‘the real definition of a Mind in my life’ and ‘the need to have Less of it’, which is straightforward when looked at in this sense. Right?

But again, my troubles didn’t end as I found myself dealing with another issue when trying to stick the two parts together. You see, although I wanted the second part to essentially cancel out the first part, my brain had trouble computing the equation of
1 + 1 = 0.

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 would actually end up demanding More of Less if that makes sense. I was essentially stuck on More by obsessively hunting ideas envisioning Less in a roundabout way. Don’t worry if that seems confusing, it will soon become perfectly clear.

More + Less would still produce More of the same stuff. More Mind-Consuming and Controlling Thought.

I tell you, it’s so easy to make a mess over the desire for anything, let alone over the desire for Less. Therefore, I soon realised that I was up against a major force, and perhaps the most stubborn of them all… myself, specifically my ingrained conditioning to always react to situations with a barrage of thoughts.

Do you know how hard it is to react to a pressurised issue without being bombarded by thoughts? Some scenarios require an ongoing thought process that may be considered thick. But a clean and simplified line of thought, by releasing the bulk of them in my reaction, is what made all the difference to my life today. In a way, Less could be considered -1 by understanding that the idea leads to the discontinuation of an idea (1 + -1 = 0).

Fortunately, with great commitment, research and development that led to this website today, it’s now possible to softly introduce this core/fundamental idea named ‘Mindless’ to an open audience. And what a word to start working on out of all the options that I could have chosen from. There’s no doubt I picked the heaviest word in the dictionary!

Over a secretly executed campaign stretching beyond eight years (as of 2024), whether those around me knew it or not (mostly not), I finally grew some Mindless Fruit from the Mindless Tree to share with all of you today. Otherwise, if I had not taken this particular approach, then I definitely wouldn’t have ANYTHING worthwhile to offer anyone.

How did I get started on ‘Less’?

Life tells a hundred reasons why Less is More is good, and we have all heard them. Overall, it points to less consumption of mostly physical 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 running ideas and ideals that describe many variations of ‘Less’ attributes, i.e., anything tied in with less waste which makes me feel that ‘extra’ bit special (I care more than you do), then it means I’m being my usual More-ish Self again. As a result, I’m not getting the clearer picture from Lessing at the deeper level as I ought to. Instead, I savour all the feelings that I get from ‘ideas of Less’, and stay with the same old up-and-down pattern of being More-ish in my ways.

My 3 Stage Up & Down Pattern
  1. I run a pleasant idea in my mind until it’s dry.
  2. During sensory exhaustion on the positive side of things (which is when my nervous system starts acting up), my problems have a chance to return and haunt me through uneasy ideas that were previously suppressed.
  3. I huff and puff on the negative side while waiting for positive input to be able to refuel my mind again, thus returning me to stage 1 and creating an endless loop.
