Nice observations on how the mind/self embodiment works in some of it's capacities. It is a self defense mechanism to a made up self delusion like an
automatic inhibitor that runs a life script instead of actual reality...
The things one tells oneself is what one identifies with being as atypical instead of what someone actually lives in some conceptual state of wishful
thinking instead of actually that being... others can clearly see that being by how they present themselves in their actions.
Of course the sociopath makes it their art to decieve everyone as much as they possibiliy can to blend in to "act" instead of authentic being someone
that does not hide who they are behind the conceptual labels.
Talking to oneself is the atypical old definition of shizophrenia... someone so internally involved to shut out the outside world that the inside is
the only place they life like a chicken inside of an egg not knowing it is a chicken or anything else outside of that egg... until it or the world
grows too small to contain itself in it's own special bubble of reality.
The brave new world then is of course seeing reality directly outside of the egg, not in some idea of what reality is from a onesided internal dialog
but how the entire world views sort of like the effect that gets called "The Overview effect" that many cosmonauts etc have
Where the Earth shrinks to something very small and when seen that all life appears on something so tiny and precious as friends family etc? Then they
see it all interconnected as one and it is just the opposite of ego that sees themselves that large on earth and if in space wouldn't think twice
about crushing it thinking themself some sort of god and in that exact instant also become the destroyer at the same time...
Of course craddling life in ones hands in acceptance as a unified whole without bias or distrimination comes easy for those that have held children in
such a manner that accept all life in the exact same way until taught otherwise by those not very wise... this of course is the mode of insinct to
protect and preserve their own brood of course not all animals feel that way as the self preservation or chasing of ghosts of the past come back to
haunt having that self defense of others expectations driving their life into what they didnt want it to be and have essentially lost themselves in
what they wanted to be... feeling pulled in familial attachments vs. their own needs wants and desires.
That of course leads to a sociopathic lifestyle that then starts disintegrating the family it is attached too, that becomes a dysfunctional family as
such things get passed along before exposure to the outside world as that is not how families actually relate to eachother when they are open and
honest inside and out with who they are and not some expected role or hiding behind some label of who they pretend to be.
There is no such thing as a label of anything except when that action is being carried out... if there are ulterior motives for doing something then
there is a desire for fullfillment of some sort. Making coffee is just making coffee there is no euphamism when doing so it is what it is and all that
is added it the cream or sugar... so there is nothing beyond the appearance of what it is.
Living ones life in such a manner is the true artform, of course people that want to play roles should stick to the stage and not carry them into real
Turning emotions into a healthy outlet is a positive thing, such as aggression into body building martial arts video games etc.
And of course acceptance is real love of someone for who they are, unconditional is a very difficult thing to master as it accepts imperfections that
are of a different perspective than the ego self, and it comes from a place that says even though our view is different theres no issue, as I have
empaty enough to sit down shut off any internal dialog that will judge or compare and contrast against ones own experience and offer advice... one
actually compassionately listens and gains empathy with the other person and gains their perspective feels their emotions... if they have been through
it themselves? They can say how they have overcome but sometimes there is just a need for someone to listen instead of stand in their own ears waiting
to walk all over someone with their mouths.
That's my personal objective opinion.
