Denied or Denial

Why did I even come up with this name for the blog? This was a couple months back. To be precise I wrote the title of the blog per my drafts on 15th October 2020. What did I want to write then? I can’t really recall lol

But what can I write about this topic now? In this moment, when thinking of these words the first image that comes to mind is that of a judge. A judge listens to both sides of an argument of the party in question and draws conclusion by how well their arguments are presented. The party who may willingly/ unwillingly plead guilty thinks they are denied, hence sometimes they can also be in denial. Perhaps denying the truth or perhaps refuting the lies, maybe denied blessings, hopes and opportunities. Maybe denied hardships and trials that they cannot see unfolding. There is only one True Judge. The True Judge must be just beyond all comprehension. The one that brings all to light. The hidden and manifest, the seen and unseen. What is spoken of and what is kept secret.

Why did I write, “Denied or Denial ” as the title of the blog? Was I thinking about worldly life? Or was I thinking of spirituality? If I were to think from the perspective of spirituality, and the word denied- it is a blessing. Deny what the ego wants. There is a famous saying that comes to mind, a spiritual person is grateful for all the blessings the ones received and the ones denied. The human intellect and wisdom draws on past and present and projects onto the future. However, that wisdom and intellect doesn’t know what lies in the future. The wisdom and intellect of a spiritual person has to put all trust, hope and fear to the higher power. To God!

Denial in regards to spirituality in my thought and little knowledge that I hold embodies the lower ego. The id as classified by Freud. Or perhaps the unconscious mind and the shadow self as classified by Jung. The 2 ideas are powerful and as Jung says, if you don’t make what is unconscious conscious, it will dictate your life and you will call it fate. The id and the lower self is a force within the human mind, body and soul that entraps a person in a cycle of unconscious behaviours.

There is much more I can write on this… on and on but at the same time, I think that because what I know is very little, writing perhaps helps me explore the unknown, writing helps me gain wisdom and insights from the lens and pen I hold. It grants me wisdom the way my mind works and thinks. However, reading and listening is what truly opens the door to ideas, possibilities, different perspectives, different ways of seeing things.

Something that just came to my mind, the water that flows can create a path forwards. Even if it meanders to get there.

Why do I say this? In the context of denied and denial; whether looking at it from the perspective of a judge or the parties in question involved or, looking at it through the lens of spirituality. Staleness is what stunts our growth. Stale water eventually becomes a life source for micro organisms, algae and fungi. A person who does not want to grow and lives in denial- can be likened to that stale water. The mind of the person becomes a source and force for denial. Denial in the context of the idea of judge, and denial in the context of id and the shadow self.

How to win over hate?

So, last night I was rewatching one of my favourite childhood shows. “Samurai Jack”

Long ago…. in a lol everytime I recall samurai Jack, either the intro or the phrase ‘jump good’ pops up in my head. Do you remember the episode when Aku is surprised seeing Jack flying and says, “You can flyyyyyy….” Jack replies, “No, jump good”

Jack really should have gone back in time to his home in that episode. But they cut it off there. I don’t remember what happens after.

Anyway, I was supposed to talk about this other episode. The episode is titled, ‘Jack vs Mad Jack”.

In this episode Jack faces the hate, frustration, anger and rage within him. It takes his mirror image physically through Aku’s magic and battles him. One could say that it is also his ego. When he battles his ego and the evil Jack… everything around is getting burnt and the forest is catching fire. Watching it, I couldn’t help but think of that proverb, the hate within you destroys everything around you. The hate within you consumes you. Jack is also struggling to beat his evil self. He gets hurt fighting the hate and rage until he finally realises that the only way to beat hate, frustration and anger is to let go!

So, this is what Jack does… He lets it go! He calms himself, straightens his hair, ties it in a knot, looks deep within and destroys the hate inside him by letting go. In doing so, the evil Jack vanishes and the magic loses it power.

In today’s polarised world, where a brother picks up arms against his own brother, where 2 people with different opinions can’t hold a thoughtful debate, where riots and protests have become the answer, inequality is on the rise…. the answer is winning over hate.

Be like Samurai Jack, destroy the hate and anger within you and let it go… because if you don’t, it will destroy everything around you. In the process, it will consume you.

Here’s the clip of the episode Jack vs Jack, a powerful lesson from a children’s animation. https://youtu.be/SUhmVfAvdSs

A quick update and something to think about!

It’s not that I have ran out of ideas and lost my interest in writing and blogging.

Past few weeks, I have been writing a lot as a matter of fact. Probably written well over 15000 words for different reports. I can’t really say more than that about them.

On the bright side, I have about 5 different topics laying about in my drafts on this blog site. It’s just that I haven’t been able to complete them because most of them required a bit more effort and research and some require deeper reflection.

Anyways, this coming Sunday, I should be good to release the drafts laying about. Maybe even 2 at a time. Let’s see how I get on.

My focus recently has a lot been on meditation. In short, I came across 2 of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s books, How to break the habit of being yourself! And Becoming Supernatural. A lot of skeptics who may read those books will simply discard the research. But my question to those literalists and skeptics is this, science is only recently uncovering the quantum physics and neuroscience of human potential. The ancients have possessed this knowledge long before us.

To give some examples, meditation, contemplation and solitude has resulted in select few ordinary people to unlock their hidden potential.

A lot of books are full of miracles and stories we regard as fables and perhaps exaggeration to some. My question then is this, if quantum physics and neuroscience is revealing some of these hidden secrets only now. Imagine how much there is to unravel. Are you still sceptical of miracles? Are you still not a believer? I am not really giving you any solid evidence. I am only laying out where evidence can be found. The two books I mention will give you some idea on neuroscience of mysticism and the access to quantum field. Different dimensions…. then there are other books on real life mystics who have lived before us and some who live among us even now, who have performed miracles.

Anyway, I was only here to give a short update but as always i start talking about things… this time, things I have been reading and researching and meditations I have been practising. Dr. Joe Dispenza is one person who has documented research and books and then there is also, Wim Hof, the iceman who is spreading a powerful and simple breathing technique which enables us to get high. Yeah… that is literally what happens… you get high off your own supply. No drugs, no intoxication haha

Give them a search on YouTube or google and ask yourself this question, do you still deny the miracles of the mystics?
