Thank you for returning to part four of this very important series. Important to the human Psyche. More succinctly, the human mind. The minder, the “I” ever present assessor. Calculator.
Here are the links below, which will help you collate the premises I set forth freely, beforehand.
Now unto part four…….
I said in part one that we all possess this; Fear of Failure/Success. Of course they appear to be two different maladies, yes, IE; a) The fear of failure and b) The fear of success, but…….
However the cruciality here is that (and mind you, this is an ordinate in existence) Because they are counterparts, opposites they stem from a singularity. They have a theme in common.
Mind you this is why Psychology has determined them both to be one and the same. Obviously this is why cognitive association alighting upon either one inevitably elicits the other.
Okay, true, I might have left some of my readers behind, at this point.
Think of the human property of “Association”, a factor which we all possess which helps us to process things (events, experiences) and turn them into ideas, thoughts, conclusions. The connection made between things we have recorded with our mind due to the five senses, yes the thought processes relative to those things perceived is boosted by “association”. The human office monitor, the collator.
So the FOF and the FOS stemming from one singularity and being the two faces, IE the Duality stemming from something singular become less substantial, less valuable than the singularity from which they emerge. And this is all very mysterious still, isn’t it?
So at this point let me ask you a question to which you possess the answer……..
But I shall pose it in the framework of a scenario.
Here’s the scene; A individual fears failure, okay, let’s us say that this is so, well then (and this is a bit befuddling) he is working on a project (for the sake of our presentation and) to the point in time where the project is approaching completion. Here comes the stress, the trigger……
This project has the remarkable potential to elevate its manager, its creator to a status previously denied, withheld this entity. Pressure, pressure…..
Recognition will be his/hers, plaudits, etc…
“There’s a signpost up ahead, your next stop….”
The Failure zone, because through the process of association the fear of failure is elicited by the looming potential for Success as the project draws finalizing.
We’ve seen this in literature as the canvas used to draw such a scenario, in film, in plays, in poetry as a cry, forlorn. Doom, the voice of doom, the bell tolling. Self derailment, self destruction, the Vicious Cycle.
But here’s a bone for God (don’t mean this in any form of sacrilegiousness), and why? Because, I for one have been able to coalesce these thoughts, these concepts due alone to the presence of the Life of God within me. And why?
Because at the tender age of 25 I trusted in Christ as my Lord and Saviour. And trust me that was but the beginning. Meaning what? That I went through hell following that. Years of it. That was His method of resurrecting His Life by killing my life (a piddly small “l” for life when contrasted against the larger “L” for His Life.)
Granted the last two paragraphs seem a digression (perhaps not, in a Spiritual criteria), but……
Friend the most important thing on your behalf is that this one caricature sketched by us is caught in a trap, yes, see the circle, the current running through the wire to the singularity whereas we are governed by the Dualities which due to the fact that they are broken off from a Singularity clothe us mere mortals with the crowning futility, a gasp even, and why?
It is the Void in Man, the Void in Humanity which is the Author of our predicament. The Author of our vexation.
Failure, Success, what is the difference? Nothing, yes none. Because they (failure, success) are both Void Guises. Creations of our fractured Psyches.
I have told you before about “Kipling’s Triumph and Disaster, the two impostors”(poem “If”, read it).
Yes I have kept you in suspense as to the Singularity…….
The Singularity, my friends is the Void. But no it is not that simple. It is the Void as it works with our Soul, our Psyche, it creates Dualities. And why? In order to provide us with the illusion, the lie, that we possess Value. You see when in Adam we forfeited the Life of God we became Void, yes a Void Creation, flawed.
The sum of what you have just read above is but what I have done with my Christianity. What can you do with yours? Though it might be awaiting you…….
I have given you too much for one post.
