Self-Destruction And Self-Actualization Inhibitors

Riley Coules
July 28, 2016

Self-destructive behavior is defined as such because those who choose to engage in it stand in the way of their own prosperity. Notice I use the word choose. On one hand, disharmony within exacerbates the lower self, often without our knowledge or consent; but we must always consent, for even the covert requires our passive mediation, and consequent lack of transformation, if it is to impose limitation on the behaviors we engage in everyday. Externalizing the authority behind our negativity allows us to further negate the root cause of discontent in our lives- ourselves- when we hold (curable) mental ailments such as anxiety responsible for our suffering, or indirectly blame others as well as burdensome life circumstances for instigating our pessimism (we would just be so happy otherwise, right?). In reality, we are the reason we suffer, for all self-destructive behaviors must be something we feed into, whether we perpetuate, or reinforce, detrimental patterns of our own construction. Ultimately, failing to modify our perceptions of external sources of negativity- even our lower selves- will hinder our progression, as will the veiling effects of allopathics. 

.

Because Western medicine neglects to consider the role imbalances play in chronic anxiety, only treating their superficial manifestations as a result, we tend to attribute our inability to cope to an innate predisposition- when in reality, the mind attaches ideation to panic within the body, from which we develop a heightened subconscious. Fears are then exacerbated as involuntary processes scramble to perform, and we struggle to overcome the amplified lower self. Unacknowledged emotion may otherwise perpetuate random bouts of unprompted angst, which quick-fixes do little to correct, in fact suppressing what must be brought to the surface in order to fully heal; self-actualization inhibitors like benzos bandage our turmoil, whereby we surrender all coping skills as a result. Our wounds are never mended at their source, or by our own hand. The numbness drugs incite thwarts our ability to connect with those we love as well as ourselves, a precursor to manifestation. Spiritual suffocation must follow, for the whole soul is not only aware of every facet of the self, but how to conquer the mentalities that perpetually obstruct avenues to the higher.

 .

The healing crisis, especially a heavy one, purports an onslaught of physical and mental stressors, and anxiety certainly brings the most discomfort. As a product of pathogenic overgrowth- unwanted visitors that feed off of the vitality of their hosts- anxiety reflects the mission of the nefarious to wreak havoc on the light: the soulful. Evil plays out all over this world, utilizing fear mongering in order to foster the exaggeration of the lower self; as the vital force drives this toxicity outward, the affected must mediate lowly sentiments of past strife, those that incited the very fear they have attempted to escape throughout the duration of their illness. The sheer angst associated with purging the body of negativity tends to incite rumination- over our own fears, our own impediments, our own perceptions and oppressive emotions- because we cannot withdraw from our minds, the ever-present force we allow to squander our freedom despite our total control over it. We then grasp at the attainment of any avenue to peace, including the usage of drugs that contrive our reality for us; unfortunately, the external only inhibits our ability to flourish at our own hand as we bask in the fog of the unacknowledged. By “correcting” chemical imbalances with allopathics, we impede the already-dysfunctional, fighting suppression with suppression. Stifled emotion and pathological illness then remain unexplored, and the afflicted continue to suffer. Unfortunately, Western methods of “healing”, are, in fact, fake; the bandages they spawn will inevitably loosen and rusticate, and the gaping wound of averted obstacles will rear their ugly heads once again.

We eventually come down and realize how broken we still are.

Drugs are themselves toxic; they burden the liver, the storehouse of emotions, further stressing the already-stressed. They also burden the soul, for in the attempt to wholly embody the light within, an individual must work toward recognizing triggers to inversions of the higher self. For this reason, Big Pharma mirrors the evil of trauma; we not only fight suppression with suppression, but toxicity with toxicity. We essentially darken the already-dimmed. The widespread amplification of the lower self is a deliberate schema purported by higher powers, a method of control through which our people are kept out of reality and into false renditions of happiness (“One God, one market, one Truth, one consumer” (1)); lesser qualities are amplified merely because knowledge of the self, of nature, of connectivity, remains elusive as we assume the zombie-like state self-actualization inhibitors enact. We allow the pharmaceutical industry to mold us into pure sources of profit to feed their power, through which we surrender ourselves and our spirituality, if only because we look to institutions for answers instead of within. Nature compels us to take- guides us into taking- a hard look at our motives, our fears, and the negativity that drives our lowly pursuits, while allopathics force our minds into submission, force our bodies (the vessel through which we absorb toxicity) into compliance, inhibiting our vitality further and thus repressing our progression futher. Due to this schema, we also fail to recognize that we have been taken care of by entities beyond us, a sentiment that dampens our spirituality in and of itself. We have been blessed with medicine at our fingertips, so why resort to the synthesized in order to mend the organic? It just doesn’t make sense- but because we’re told just the opposite, we dub natural means of healing bullshit, and sub-par at best. Such a premise only reinforces the norms maintained by the covert force of “society”: trust what you know and ridicule what you don’t. The cost? We blindly follow what we’re told, and because we never deviate from the institutions we trust to render us healthy, we never question the principles they market as truth.

.

Even when the outputs of Big Pharma seemingly alleviate our troubles, false equanimity ensures we perpetually suffer; because we never feel the emotions bubbling under the surface, those that induced long-term disquietude in the first place, we settle for detachment, a sub-par version of the stability that could exist if only we had faith in realms beyond. It doesn’t matter what type of trauma (mental/emotional, or physical) has instigated an individual’s anxiety, it’s the fact the emotion behind it is not being felt; when we drive disharmony deeper, we not only become zombies of our former selves, we become synthesized versions of who we once were, much like the chemicals we put in our bodies. And usually we’re not even that happy, not truly happy from our daily dose of Xanax. We don’t connect with those around us, nor do we connect with ourselves; self-awareness stems from working through and conquering lesser qualities, not masking them in fear. Furthermore, we may think we’re experiencing life after we’ve veiled the distress that once consumed us, but because we have not truly healed unacknowledged strife, the mind’s expression of panic within the body, we view our reality through a blurred lens. This reality is not actually real; it fails to convey what could be cultivated (the higher self), what could be obtained from the lens we were given at birth (modified with strife and growth), if only we allowed nature to restore it back to its natural state. When turmoil tarnishes the purity of this lens, we must work with earth’s resources- reflections of us- to construct foundations on which we may interpret the rest of our lives, as well as existences to come- i.e., lasting truths.

 .

Thus, in order for our wounds to heal, we must heal them.

 .

Revisiting the former throughout the restoration process allows us to permanently rectify behaviors that may once again coerce us does down the wrong paths in the future, and even discover parts of ourselves we may not otherwise embrace. The lower self involves qualities that not only inhibit us, but those around us- such as triggers to irritability, disconnection, and self-absorption. Thus, the awareness we gain from illness and throughout healing, with the amplification of the subconscious as well as any formerly-indecipherable motives, will stimulate and solidify the manifestation of the higher form if an individual so chooses. Morale must be elected as the soul feels what has not been felt; any virtuous choices made will revive the vital force as the mind-body connection mirrors the connectivity of humanity.

.

As we uproot the deepest parts of ourselves, heightened spirituality will surely follow, for nature has guided us into self-realization. The unity principle of The Soul not only concerns interpersonal relationships, but inter-energetic relationships; because we derive from the earth, our vital forces naturally accommodate the energies of earth’s offerings. Once again, connectivity grounds our faith in the realm beyond; the sheer fact that nature expresses itself through us, that homeopathic vaccines treat physical and mental manifestations of illness, those that always occur in unison, compels us to withdraw from the contrived, the man-made, in favor of the innate, and- despite what we are taught to believe- the logical. By trusting that the synthesized overturns the instinctive, we center our world on the external, neglecting all the internal has to offer as a result. When knowledge, and consequently awareness, is suppressed, The Ego thrives.
