A Study in Renaissance, Chapter 8
This lesson begins, “You [humans] present the positive to hide the negative: the internal conflict.” Of course, we have been taught in recent years to only focus on positive thoughts. What is missing is the human definition of positive and negative, versus the universal definition. The human definition of positive and negative is relative to how it makes us feel and the desired outcome versus the undesired outcome of an event. We do not factor in the learning achieved, regardless of how painful it is, that results in a greater understanding. It’s all about the expansion of consciousness as far as the universe is concerned. So, positive attitudes and positive behavior relate to our searching for the greater understanding. Positive entities are focused on the expansion of universal consciousness and are teachers. Negative, like being in the dark, is about stunting understanding. It can be self-imposed, it can be imposed by another, whether it is a physical being, like a human, or a spiritual being. We live in an experiential learning field where there has been almost a complete control of consciousness from various entities, mostly human. They seek to control the narrative and what others believe for various reasons. In defense of those who are honest, they have propagated misperceptions that they themselves believe, simply because that is the way they were taught.
The question was asked, “Why are so many women focused on maintaining the positive?” The answer, “Fear of that that they don’t understand. Fear of the highest order of understanding.” It is a behavior that developed in the past, one acceptable to move forward and not have to look at the boogey man in the closet. This behavior was accepted, most likely by the parents, during the early learning of the child. The avoidance of examining that which makes one feel uncomfortable leaves comprehension adrift. Not anchored to concrete understanding, it leaves one to fill in the voids with an artificial understanding. These false fillers are non-judgmental and non-fear-based. There is no analysis involved. It is easy. But, it confines one to a box, prohibiting one from moving forward in their evolution. Males can be boxed in too. The work of protecting the family makes it more difficult to find the balance to understand the opposite sphere. This leaves men to have only analyzed one side, which also leads to an incomplete understanding.
The internal conflict lies in our inability to see, or acknowledge, the entire truth. To be truly enlightened, one must be able to look at, and understand, not only both sides, by the many angles in which something can be viewed for a more comprehensive understanding. It requires group discussion, where each person is able to verbalize their view so that the group can see other aspects they hadn’t seen before. The universal concepts are not easy, it takes work to be a comprehensive conceptual being, one who has engaged in discourse, done the research, and connected the dots. It is one who can then see the bigger picture.
We recommend that you now return to the book, The Augmentation of Man, A Study in Renaissance, and read section that corresponds to the title and chapter of this blog. Allow time to contemplate, re-read as needed. Have patience, it does get easier. This translation is reflective of our current level of understanding. Perhaps you can find an even more profound one!
