Mindfulness Musing: Choices Made Out Of Fear & Love | #Life | #Choices | #Mindfulness

Today I made a choice that was totally fear-based choice.  I state this because I usually try to be mindful and make love-based choices.

For clarification purposes, a fear-based choice is simply a poor quality of consciousness choice, while a love-based choice is a high quality of consciousness choice.  More importantly, choices made out of love are choices that are good not because it’s the ‘right thing to do’, but because you are acting out of goodness.  Making a choice as such means you’re doing it not because you’re expected too, but because it is who you are.

Many times people do the ‘right’ thing, but it’s not really who they are.  They only carry out such choices because that’s what society expects of them, and not really because that’s who they are at the being level, all the way down at the soul.

The reason I state that is because it bothers me that I made a fear-based choice because I try and make positive choices, no matter how big or small the choice.  It can be as simple as (1) being polite to someone, (2) saying hello to someone, (3) helping someone out, (4) giving an honest compliment, (5) being mindful of other’s needs, (6) telling someone you appreciate them, so on and so forth.

Even with all that, and the fact that I wanted to make a positive choice and was even incredibly mindful of it, I still acted out of fear.  I thought about it for quite a bit, so it’s not like this was an autopilot choice out of fear, but still.  I keep pondering about what choice I could have made that was different, but I can’t think of too many, and all were based out of fear.

The reason this is crucial is because choices based out of fear nigh ever lead to anything good, and stunt an individual’s evolution, if not make them devolve outright.   This is where people begin making one fear based choice after another after another and they begin spiraling into turmoil and so on.  I’ve seen this with a few family members so it’s something that I’ve been privy too quite often.

The opposite side of this spectrum is also true though.  Choices made out of goodness and what’s right exacerbate an individual’s evolution and growth.  And the same way consecutive negative choices compound into a snowballing avalanche of negative circumstances, consistent positive choices help an individual evolve in myriad positive ways creating a tsunami of positive change.

In any case, I share the above so that individuals may perhaps consider being cognizant whenever they make choices of various types.

Being mindful of the approach you take in life does take effort, but it’s always worth it.

Fraught With Despair | #Poetry | #Poem | #Prose | #Quote | #Writing | #Fear | #Darkness

Caught inside this tear of desolation that you couldn’t believe
You are fraught with despair – an abrasion you can’t conceive

Note:

This is about fear of losing my Mom.  The doctors say she’s okay, and she probably is, but they’ve made some masterful mistakes in the past, one of which was saying she was okay when she had cancer, and others glaring oversights as well.   I can’t help but be incredibly skeptical since nothing’s ever set in stone.

Secondly, I chose the picture above as a representation of the ‘Tree of Life’, which could be a symbol for my Mom, Mother Nature, and the like.  Even though it doesn’t technically fit the poem per se, I found more suitable than merely putting something darker since I’m trying to stay positive at least.

A Heart In Despair | #Poetry | #Poem | #Prose | #Quote | #Writing | #Darkness


The dark mist formed just out of reach
And darkness stormed into the breach

Note:

Wrote this the day after my Mom was hospitalized.  Just felt downright overwhelmed at the time.  The dark mist is merely the information that you can’t grasp, thus, ‘out of reach’; the ‘stormed into the breach’ is just every negative fear about losing someone getting into your heart.

Today, another significant set of circumstances took place that is prompting this blog post[1].

Following along the same lines as the gem of a human being that was previously discussed, another circumstance that mirrors that one closely just manifested not too lon ago.  Like the previous individual at a different business is causing issues, this individual is on a war path as well.  This doesn’t surprised me given that much of what happens in corporate America at the top trickles all the way down to the bottom, in this case in a negative manner.

I really, really, really wish this were all a made-up scenario, because then that would mean that none of the people involved are getting hurt, but unfortunately it is not.  The theme of the last week has been fire and brimstone.  What’s worse is that there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.

Getting down to the point, one person was fired, one person was threated with losing their job, another person quit, another person is being held back from a promotion, and a few others are pondering ruminating upon quitting.  All this stems from ceaseless withdraws from emotional bank accounts, acts based out of someone merely wanting to run his kingdom with an iron first of power rather than a velvet glove.

Not only is the situation affecting the morale of workers, but it is also affecting the morale many customers including myself.

It’s always perplexed me, but I never understood why people will use a pound of salt when merely an ounce of sugar would be vastly superior and go a much longer way.

[1] This whole situation is getting so out of control that its not only affecting workers, but it’s affecting many customers as well.  All because one individual is afraid to lose their job.  Ironically, if they just helped the person that wanted the similar job, especially given that the person was open about wanting to work at a different location closer to their home, this whole situation would have been done and over with because training would have been complete as well as the transfer.

[2] I couldn’t resist using Megatron as the garbage truck metaphor given the reference above and how poignant it is given that this was his the garbage truck was his ‘normal’ mode of deception before transformation into his true being.

Under assault, what you felt while rushing low.
Was a thunder bolt that dealt a crushing blow.
