To hold back wrongdoing Neil Radimaker January 25, 2015 “The Conscious Resistance” to me as a whole; is finding the awareness of what you are seeking to gather into a singular understanding of one’s self; of what you stand for and/or against. To analyze a “natural self” inside of a constantly bombarded, fear’full “unnatural self”. I see that if we are to adhere to self-governance we must first seek to understand “who we are”, and what we truly believe. To separate the dark from the light aspects within the action’s we undertake on a daily basis. I think this is key to directing our self-discipline into having an honest understanding of self, within ourselves. I would like to share with you some words that came into my consciousness when I was very young. “Make a mental note of whatever offends you, and ask yourself who, or what programmed you to respond that way? Because it is in no way natural to become manic and emotional when presented with largely abstract concepts. Many people become very angry about certain issues, and take on an almost militant attitude about issues that have nothing at all to do with their own lives. This type of behavior, once limited to heavily dogmatized religious adherents and communist mindsets, has made it’s way into the mainstream of culture, and if one is able to recognize and acknowledge it in oneself, this leads to a dynamic paradigm shift. All revolution must come to you by way of fearless and brutally honest self analysis. Learning to accept and admit fault is key; one also must never set boundaries on one’s own perception.” As my paradigm shift continues… I find that there is no single article, link, blog, book, or library, can provide a truly comprehensive understanding of what is going on here on this satellite many call Earth, because “understanding” is something that can not be “given”, “received” or “memorized”, it must be autonomously produced within your own consciousness.” I believe how we think directs us. The Conscious Resistance helps us self-direct those thoughts and fears into a positive direction and action. I find it interesting that the origins of the word “conscious” dating back to the late 16th century is (in the sense ‘being aware of wrongdoing’): and in Latin ‘knowing with others or in oneself. The origin of Resistance From late Latin resistentia, is ‘hold back’. So in a way, I can honestly say The Conscious Resistance means: “To hold back wrongdoing”.
