The Positive Aspect of Negativity…

As I read the news of a celebrity deciding to put an end to his own breath, to his own physical entity…as I read the news of the forest and it’s life set ablaze, reduced to mere ashes in the forest fire in Australia…

I was forced/propelled to connect the dots, to join the missing links…

These are the darker side of the human force…manifesting itself in various ways…Is Global Warming not a resultant of Human unconsciousness of our disconnect from the self and as a result a disconnect with everything else…

Have we not lost meaning in our lives and when we are unable to do so, life and living seems meaningless…When we cannot seem to make real contribution, we lose self worth..

Have we ever stopped to think…why do we lose self worth, why life seems like a burden and living seems stifling…

Not just because we have lost our way, our sense of our own Purpose, a disconnect with the self and the others…but because we have lost the sense to see life as an integrated whole…we seem to believe that Water is essential for survival…no doubt in this planet for these particular life forms, it is…but so is fire…

Too Much or too close to the source of light and we turn to ashes and too much or little or water drowns or dehydrates..

and in an era where we are living life in compartments, we also need to understand that a train is only a train when we connect the compartments, until then they are just compartments, storage units/dumping grounds…till they connect together…

and

In an era where we are being constantly bombarded with the Notion of…

  • Be Positive, Feel Positive, Think positive…it’s almost works in affirming the belief that whatever and who ever we are in this present moment is not good enough…for we are a combined package of the good, the bad and the ugly and if only being good, amounts to good enough…then maybe we are not good enough…and if we are not good enough, then it’s an organic response to question ones existence…

OR

On the other hand

maybe we are so invested in affirming the positive that we fail to address the other bigger force that coexists in the Universe–the Negative one(

and maybe since we do not address it, are afraid to acknowledge it…we probably under or over estimate it’s Organic Existence…

We see one force as elevating and the other as detrimental… and maybe since we don’t even wish to address it, we understand very little about it and what we do not understand we fear…and Fear generates only 3 reactions Fight, Flight and Freeze…

and speaking of Fear which is considered a powerful negative emotion… what if we change the perception, that “Fear is a necessary evil” very much like “Money being a necessary evil”…The factor of Fear, of Anxiety has helped us as a specie witness this Century, else we were and could have been an easy prey to a lot of Predators..Take another example…Imagine stepping under the hot shower and its effect…had the body not remembered the sensation, the experience of feeling the sensation of heat, of feeling burnt by hot water/tea, at the age of 1.6 yrs or 2, would we still be alive, in an undamaged unburnt body…We are careful while using or being near sharp objects… for the kind of memories that are stored in the body in our earliest years of being near them or using them…and all of them are some kind of feelings (careful, hurtful, dangerous) that are categorically labelled as Negative emotions…

What if these are not negative emotions but self preserving emotions and what if negativity is not truly negativity, but a complementary force working towards directing and pushing us towards our highest potential and it’s our inability to recognise this potential, that makes Negativity such a fearful aspect, that we don’t even wish to address it…and maybe not addressing it…pushing it aside leads it to piling up as debris, as garbage, as waste…that truly pollutes, corrupts, distorts and disrupts the flow of life that is meant to happen in an integrated, collaborative way…

for what we don’t feel, we don’t deal with and what we don’t deal with cannot be healed…

In my perspective…Positivity is not, not addressing and shunning out negativity, but it’s rather about accepting, recognising and addressing it…It is about us being comfortable in having an open ended non judgemental conversation about it…It is about addressing it and not shying away from it…facing it and not fearing it…

for the more we Fear, the more we run…the more we run, the lesser we learn, the lesser we learn,  the lesser we connect and the lesser we connect(at the deepest levels), the more meaningless life seems to become…for as mammals our survival depends on connection and interconnection…and maybe not addressing it in a non-judgemental way has probably caused more damage than we ever imagined possible.

Let’s change our perception and let’s stop fighting, shaming and demeaning an aspect of ours, that Nature has intentionally put before us for our Greatest collaborative good…
