A New Direction – the Negative Side of Positive Thinking (Part 6)

You could well ask, “How is the Stoics negative-neutralizing-positive approach any different from the positive thinker’s positive-neutralizing-negative orientation?” There is a subtle distinction but an extremely important one for all who search for fulfillment. Positive thinkers want to replace negativity with positivity, a kind of denial of reality. Stoics, and a number of other systems that accentuate the negative, do not look to supplant positive emotions. Rather, they strive to recognize the reality that negative and positive both exist, and that the realization of such frees one from struggling to achieve happiness. In other words, they look for the still state that underlies and connects both worlds. The Stoics are searching for EuStillness.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Stoics and other negative-visualization advocates, law-of-attraction practitioners and other positive thinkers, as well as those minds stuffed full of the mundane, the magnificent, or even the magical, are all searching for the same thing: EuStillness. EuStillness is the ground state connecting, supporting, and inner-penetrating all worlds, negative and positive. In fact, when aware of EuStillness the contrast between negative and positive begins to soften. I guess a good analogy would be sugar cubes in water. Place a few inches of water in a tumbler. Drop in two sugar cubes: one represents negative and the other positive. Watch as the integrity of each cube dissolves first into each other and then, in time, disappearing into the water itself. What is called for is a way to resolve the apparent struggle between the forces of positive and negative. We are looking for some process or perception that allows you to know both positive and negative and, more importantly, the unifying essence, the glue that binds the two. Or, in the case of the sugar cubes, the water into which both the negative and positive cubes dissolve.

A New Direction – the Negative Side of Positive Thinking (Part 5)

Negative visualization offers another more substantial advantage over positive thinking, and that is the reduction of anxiety. Positive thinking will have you visualize that you already have what you are seeking. Now, you not only have to energetically maintain that illusion but you have to combat the fear of losing it. This phenomenon is especially evident in people who are “always happy”. They tend to overtly push hyper-happiness ahead of them with exaggerated beaming smiles like radar searching for sustenance. But their eyes forsake them. The muscles around their eyes are strained and pinched. Instead of the spontaneous spark of life, deep within their eyes you will find only bewilderment torched by fear. What is it they fear? They fear the loss of the illusion, something they never owned in the first place. Imagine how unsettling it is to fear losing something you never had in the first place.

Our fear of loss is almost always exaggerated. How many times have you worried about something going wrong and when it finally did it wasn’t as bad as you had imagined? This is almost always the case. Negative visualization brings the actual loss into focus and reduces or eliminates the fear of the unknown. It gives you a more realistic vision of possibilities. The higher you build your castle in the air the farther you have to fall back to earth. The Stoics would have you live closer to reality right here on Earth. But as I have mentioned before, there is nothing wrong with having your head in the clouds as long as your feet are on the ground.

A New Direction – the Negative Side of Positive Thinking (Part 4)

There is a counterculture to positive thinking, a kind of hidden in plain sight non-movement slowly gaining momentum. At first I thought the negative thinking advocates were simply a backlash, a kind of sour grapes movement against the sucrose sweet teachings of positive thinking. But not at all, and you are going to love this. They have been around since the sandaled feet of the ancient Greeks beat a dusty path to the Parthenon. I am talking about the school of philosophy called Stoicism which blossomed shortly after the death of Aristotle. According to Oliver Burkeman, author of The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking, the Stoic’s ideal state of mind was inner peace, not exuberant happiness. And this is an important point. They were actually applying negativity to counterbalance the overtly optimistic, to settle somewhere in between. The Stoics sought through reason what Newton’s third law of motion discovered through, well, motion. They were looking for equilibrium.

According to Burkeman, “Rather than struggling to avoid all thought of these worst-case scenarios, they counsel actively dwelling on them, staring them in the face.” The technique they employ is negative visualization. Here’s how it works. When we find something that we enjoy or even love we soon acclimate to its presence and it does not offer us that same level of happiness. It doesn’t matter if it’s our brand-new whiz-bang, super-duper smart phone or our loving and always supportive partner, in a short amount of time our interest lessens and then our level of enjoyment drops. The object of happiness then fades into the background. Negative visualization dictates that we contemplate the loss of that entity. Negative visualization would have you picture what life would be like without your smart phone or your partner. When your increased awareness falls on that object of happiness it rejuvenates your interest and increases your level of enjoyment. Reminding yourself that you could lose something automatically increases your appreciation of it.

Negative visualization offers another more substantial advantage over positive thinking, and that is the reduction of anxiety. Positive thinking will have you visualize that you already have what you are seeking. Now, you not only have to energetically maintain that illusion but you have to combat the fear of losing it. This phenomenon is especially evident in people who are “always happy”. They tend to overtly push hyper-happiness ahead of them with exaggerated beaming smiles like radar searching for sustenance.

In her book The Willpower Instinct, Stanford University psychologist Dr. Kelly McGonigal, who has one of the most popular classes in Stanford history, tells us that making a resolution or affirmation makes us feel good at the moment, but creates an unrealistic or optimistic expectation of the future. It creates a kind of satisfaction or relaxation that does not allow us to have a realistic idea of the present and the future. They actually make us far less motivated to get back on track and reach our goals. When we fail to reach our goals we can feel guilty or frustrated. The harder we are on ourselves, the harder it is for us to be successful. It sets us up for a bigger fail.

Heather Barry Kapps and Gabriele Oettingen, conducting research out of New York University and the University of Hamburg, also found that positive thinking resulted in less energy and poor achievement. The reason cited for the poor achievement of generated positive thinking, “… [positive thinking] does not generate enough energy to pursue the desired future.” But they didn’t stop there. Oettingen had her subjects think about the realistic obstacles to achieving their goals. In essence, the test subjects injected a healthy dose of reality to balance the pie-in-the- sky positivity. In positive thinking parlance, this reality is considered negativity. What was the result? Oettingen’s subjects who included possible obstacles to reaching their goals outperformed those participants who only focused on the possible positive outcome.

Negativity is a reality. Negativity has value. It does no good to deny its existence or try to neutralize its impact by playing the law-of-attraction game. Those who try to neutralize negativity not only find it a drain on spontaneous living but find it necessary to generate copious amounts of energy to maintain a mood of success in the face of continual failure. You will see a forced and frozen smile on their face and fear in their eyes. They know the force of evolution is working against them but don’t know how to stop it. They don’t know they shouldn’t try. It’s like trying to maintain the integrity of your sand castle when the tide is coming in.

A New Direction – The Negative Side of Positive Thinking (Part 2)

(Excerpt from When Nothing Works Try Doing Nothing)

If positive thinking were benign, a useless dalliance of the mind, then it would be nothing more than a frivolous waste of time. But positive thinking is not benign. Ironically, positive thinking can have negative psychological backlash. You may be surprised at this revelation, but when you understand the mechanism you will know it to be true from your own experience. Let’s take a few minutes to explore these negative effects and how we can over- come them. Remember, our job is not to eliminate positive thinking. That would be ridiculous. Our job is to eliminate the negative effects of the improper application of positive thinking. And for that we have the perfect tool. But before we get to that, let’s take a quick look at what others have to say about the negative effects of positive thinking.

A study by researchers Ayelet Fishbach from the University of Chicago and Jinhee Choi from Korea Business School found that when you stay focused on your goals, you diminish your ability to enjoy what you are doing. Less satisfaction in the doing translates to a decreased ability to reach your goal. Their subjects were asked to work out in a gym. One group focused on the goal, for instance running on a treadmill, while the other group, without a goal just focused on the experience of the workout. The group that focused on their goal had more enthusiasm but less success than the non-goal-oriented group. Additionally, the goal-oriented group felt that the exercise was more of an effort than the other group. Apparently, keeping your eye is on the goal diminishes your ability to enjoy what you are doing right now. In essence you are living an illusion skewed toward a positive outcome rather than facing the present reality.

A New Direction

Up until now I have laid out the basic precepts of the Kinslow System under the creativity, health, personal, relationships, science, society, and spiritual headings. A firm philosophical/functional foundation has been laid and now it is time for us to change direction, or more accurately, expand in any and all directions. I would like to create a more conversant forum. That is I would like to hear what you are interested in and then discuss those interests in the light of the Kinslow System. That means, we can chat over any topic that tickles your fancy. The obvious value is that we can explore and discover new ways of thinking and perceiving that will have immediate impact on our lives. This impact will manifest in many different ways on many different levels but always to enrich, nurture, and improve the quality of our lives.

That means, however, that the “dialogue” ball will occasionally end up in your court. When it does, I would like to hear from you, your thoughts, feelings, and insights tossing the ball back in my court. This is going to be fun and exciting but more than that it has the potential to enrich our lives far beyond what we have accepted as normal, or even exceptional.

So here’s how it works… I will make comment on some issue and you will respond with your observations. Then I will respond and you will respond, etc. etc. etc. Nothing new there, right? Of course the real value comes in the quality of our interaction. Let’s make it worth your while. What do you say, shall we get started?

Here is an excerpt from my new book When Nothing Works Try Doing Nothing due for release in early October. It is a topic very near to my heart. Let me know how you feel about it. Here goes…

[Note: this post will be rather lengthy but it will lay the groundwork for future blogs. Keep it handy you can refer to it often. I will add additional excerpts to support our ongoing dialogue.]

The Negative Side of Positive Thinking

“All this trying to make everything right is a big part of what’s wrong.” ~Oliver Berkeman

What is it that has the pseudoscientific community’s panties in a twist? Why, that would be the negative effects of positive thinking. When they talk about positive thinking, and I emphatically include under this umbrella “law of attraction” advocates, many take on an evangelistic fervor as if they are offering you the keys to the universe. They make you feel as though all you have to do is switch on positive thinking and the angels on high will spread rose petals on your path to material wealth and prosperity. Likewise, they tell you that the law of attraction means “like increases like” and positive thoughts can attract to them positive outcomes. They will tell you that this reasoning is based on solid principles of physics. Basically, they say, the law of attraction is telling us that our thoughts can control the material world. This may come as a surprise to many of you, but there is no “law of attraction” in physics or any other science. The whole positive thinking movement is scientifically baseless.

The most recent reincarnation of the idea that thoughts can control the material world comes out of the well-known, but frequently misinterpreted double-slit experiment in quantum mechanics. This classic experiment demonstrates that the outcome of the experiment is determined by what the observer measures. Briefly, if the scientist observed a photon in one way he found it to be a particle, and in another it presented as a wave. Now, I don’t want to get too technical here, and it’s not at all necessary in order to reach my objective. You can Google “double-slit experiment” and pick up the basics, but here’s my point. You could say that the scientist controlled whether he observed a particle or a wave, but you can’t say that he “created” the particle or the wave. The scientist seemingly influenced the outcome of the experiment by his observation of it, but in the end he was only observing what was already created. His observation determined whether he measured the photon as a particle or a wave, but he could not turn that particle or wave into a double-bacon cheeseburger. You see what I mean?

To further build on this misconception, the law-of-attraction aficionado proudly announces that if a scientist can control matter with his mind on the subatomic micro level, then we can control matter on the macro level of cars and Mars and jelly jars. This is a rather huge inductive leap with no foundation in experimental investigation. The scientist of the double-slit experiment was able to observe a single subatomic particle. Materializing your dream home is infinitely more complicated then observing a single photon. Your dream home is constructed of an unimaginable number of subatomic particles which form atoms which form molecules which then form the bricks, pipes, drywall, electrical wires, aluminum siding, etc., of your dream home. Are you truly capable of observing all of these particles in just the right way so that they materialize as your dream home? If so, would you think up a brand-new Ferrari for me? I’m just covering all my bases …

“No,” says the law-of-attraction believer, “it is the organizing power of the universe that does the work.” That there is order in the universe is obvious. That we can bend that power to our individual will has yet to be shown. There may be a greater lesson to be learned, one of observation versus control. I rather like the position of the scientist in the double-slit experiment. He is an awed observer of that universal organizing power. Isn’t that enough? From what emptiness springs our need to control every minute aspect of our world when the greatest joys afforded us have always been those spontaneous revelations of love and laughter accompanied with the realization that my world, our world, is beautiful just as it is?

Obviously our ability to imagine, plan, and control is inherent and necessary to our survival. It is the earmark of a healthy human, and has assured not only our existence but ascension to the apex of the animal kingdom. But there is a second kind of control, aberrant and born of dissatisfaction, disassociation, and fear. It is normal to want to free oneself from suffering. And if that suffering continues over a long enough time, it is common for that distressed mind to seek unrealistic and even detrimental relief. The control of the contented soul is giving, playful, and life-supporting. It lacks the frenetic sense of urgency, self-absorption, and hope that pervades a soul in suffering. The good news is that the suffering soul does not need to go outside of itself to relieve its torment. In fact, it cannot find permanent relief anywhere else but within. The misdirected mind, once on track, leaves behind that impulse and finds comfort in the present, no matter how chaotic or harsh it may appear.

If the positive-thinking movement is scientifically baseless, then why is it so popular? Does positive thinking work under more esoteric “cosmic” or spiritual laws beyond the reach of modern scientific reasoning? Well that certainly is the insinuation, but there is no proof of that either. So how does positive thinking work? The short answer is, it doesn’t! At least it doesn’t work the way it has been popularly presented.

There is more to be gained by exposing the inadequacies of positive thinking than you might realize, and it takes only a little scratching below the surface to appreciate the real and practical benefits for ourselves. Shall we do that? Shall we throw out the useless and replace it with something practical that will actually work? Then let’s get to it.

We will first look at the negative effects of positive thinking and then move on to create an actual positive perception that will … well, let’s just wait until we clear the complexities of positive thinking before we lay in our foundation for further fulfillment.

We have all heard of the wonderful results of positive thinking and the law of attraction. You know, think in just the right way to create the perfect partner or win the lottery. We hear about it a lot, but how often do you think it actually happens? Well as it turns out not very often at all, certainly not enough to be statistically significant. Let’s look at it from the other side. How many times has the law of attraction been conjured up with no results? As it turns out, failure of the law of attraction way outweighs its successes. Isn’t that your own experience? In actuality the law of attraction is no more effective at manipulating our world then is mere chance or happenstance. If it did work, everyone would be doing it and we would all be living utopian lives.

Why then do we hear so much about the successes of positive thinking? It’s the yellow Volkswagen phenomenon. Picture yourself driving down the road when out of the blue your passenger says, “Did you know that the day after you see a yellow Volkswagen you will receive unexpected money?” All of a sudden you see yellow Volkswagens everywhere, on the road, in parking lots, even in your dreams. Now, was it your lust for unexpected money that materialized yellow Volkswagens out of thin air? Some would say that seeing those yellow Volkswagens proved the law of attraction was hard at work in your favor. Or could it be that you were alerted to yellow Volkswagens and just became aware of what already existed? Remember Occam’s razor, which holds that the hypothesis with the fewest assumptions is the one that is most likely to be true. Did your law of attraction positive thought wave-patterns reverberate throughout the universe inspiring yellow Volkswagen vibrations to manifest full blown and fully loaded in the left turn lane at the next stoplight? Or did your heightened Volkswagen awareness simply make you notice what had been there all along? Do you see how easily this can get out of hand? But there’s more.

Reproducibility, that’s what a scientific technique is all about. By following the same instructions you must be able to duplicate what others have produced. Despite all manner of anecdotal evidence to the contrary, positive thinking, including intention work, is not reproducible. Let’s pick the most obvious example.

In 2007 a book was published that guaranteed its readers that the information within would provide “an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it”. I do not like to unnecessarily point fingers so I will not name the book. That will be my “secret”. This book, based on the law of attraction, became phenomenally successful – apparently a perfect example of the author’s teachings. The author then wrote a follow-up book which, despite the notoriety of the first, was far and away less successful. Now my question is this: “Did the author have an intention for her second book to be less successful?” Do you see what I’m getting at here? Did the author, a master of the law of attraction, invoke that law to create a significantly less successful book or, despite her mastery of the law of attraction, was she unable to make it work? I’ll let you be the judge.

You Do Not Exist Without Awareness

Quantum Entrainment does not depend on your mind but on your awareness. Do you have awareness? Well of course you do otherwise you would not be reading this blog. You don’t have to synthetically generate your awareness like you do a positive emotion, right? When you are awake you are aware naturally and without effort. So this is our starting point, common everyday awareness.

The next ingredient in this remarkable recipe to remove suffering and increase success is perception. Perception is how you fill your awareness. We perceive through our senses; sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing. When you see a flower the image of the flower is thrown onto the retina of your eye. The perception of the flower on the retina is changed into electrical impulses which are transmitted to your brain. Your brain translates the electrical impulses into an image of the flower you are looking at. The whole process is automatic and instantaneous.

Perception is how you fill your awareness. In this case you would see the flower but without awareness you will not know that the flower exists. If your eye were a camera then perception would be the procedure of taking the picture, that is, getting the image of the flower through the lens and recorded on the memory card. Awareness would be the light that made the whole process possible. Without light there is effectively no image of the flower and therefore no perception of the flower. As far as you are concerned it does not exist.

There are many shades of awareness. You can be alert, tired, distracted, drugged, etc. If we think of awareness as light then the different kinds of awareness represent different intensities of light. Let’s say that the brightest light possible registers 10 on our “light/awareness” scale. Everyday common consciousness would register 4 or 5 on our scale of 0 to 10. This would be like using your camera to take a picture outdoors on a cloudy day. Depending on the degree of fatigue tired awareness would be a 2 or 3. This would be like taking a picture at dusk as the sun is setting. Drugs like alcohol and other depressants would register 0 to 2 and would be like taking a picture at night. A stimulant like caffeine will temporarily push our awareness to 6 or 7 followed by rebound fatigue in the 2 to 3 range. This would be like taking a picture with a flash attachment and then having to recharge the battery.

Quantum Entrainment is a way to perceive the purest awareness, a 10 on our awareness scale. Having the purest awareness is like taking a picture under perfect conditions in full daylight. When we perceive through pure awareness it gives us the truest, most vibrant reflection of life. It frees us from having to struggle to see life clearly. It gives us the best chance for appreciating the world within which we live.

Lilou’s Juicy Living Tour

Who’s in Charge? (Part I)

(Let me say at the outset of this article that it may touch a little on the technical and even if you have zero interest in neuroscience or quantum physics I encourage you to skip easily over any part that befuddles or bores you and read this article to its conclusion. The implications are staggering!)

I just finished reading a fascinating book by neuroscientist Michael S. Gazzaniga called, Who’s in Charge?: Free Will and the Science of the Brain. Gazzaniga throws his hat into the determinism vs. free will ring with unique clarity. His book is filled with a plethora of the latest research in neuroscience but one topic drew my particular interest. The research in question is that which specifies that a brain creates an activity before its owner (That’s us-or at least what we think of as us.) becomes conscious of that act. Encoded brain activity can appear up to 10 seconds before awareness dawns. In other words, our brains tell us what to do before we know we want to do it!

So the conclusion we draw from that rock solid research is that conscious volition is an illusion. Neuroscientists are telling us the feeling that “I” chose the tiramisu for dessert, and “I” chose to eat it with a fork and not a spoon, is an illusion. In fact our brain chose the tiramisu and “I” just took the credit for it.

Your mind is the result of the functioning of your brain somewhat like heat is the result of the functioning of an electric motor. But your mind also influences your brain. Our brains are subservient to the laws of classical physics; the definite world of analytic, cause and effect. It represents our past. Our minds belong more to the realm of quantum physics; emergent probabilities and the unpredictable future.

Aside from generating the mind, the brain is incapable of creating anything new. Mathematics and logic don’t create. They just describe and report. On the other hand, mind is just so much vapor without the structure of the brain to support it. So the brain generates the mind, the fog of the future, which inspires the brain to support greater growth.

My question is this: what is the meeting point between the two, the common ground that allows brain and mind to communicate with each other? There has to be some overlap or they would be lost to each other. You see what I’m getting at?

For this we would need a third entity different from brain and mind able to include the two. It could not simply connect the two like the corpus callosum connects the two hemispheres of the brain. It would have to be beyond both and at the same time completely conversant with each. It would have to be familiar with both and yet different from each. What could this be?

I have an excellent candidate for this all embracing connector which I am anxious to share with you in the second part of this post. See you there…

Why Your Intention Doesn’t Work (Part III)

We feel the need to control our lives only when we feel out of control. Have you ever found yourself saying, “Is this all there is to life? I have everything I need, so why do I feel so incomplete?) We feel out of control when we lose our perception of universal order. It’s really quite simple. When we perceive the unifying flow of universal love we feel content. When we do not we feel alienated, out of control. We try to regain the sense of wholeness by exerting individual control over the people and things in our environment. Manipulating the pieces will never replace wholeness. We try to fill our emptiness with things and thoughts but win only fleeting relief. There is only one thing that can fill infinite emptiness and that is unbounded love.

Universal love (Eufeeling) is like a mother. We are like her children. Motherly love flows unrestricted to her child. Mother wants her child’s every desire to be fulfilled. But mother will not give her child something that is hurtful or a waste of his time or energy. It is not important that we get what we want. Above all else, it is important that our deepest desire is realized, that is to be wrapped in the adoring arms of universal love. We first fulfill our desire on the universal level and then whatever comes after is appreciated in the richness of that force which connects and combines. All other desires pale by comparison. They lose their power over us. They become more like preferences than desires and we can take them or leave them.

Now here comes the beautiful part. Once we perceive universal unity, which turns out to be quite simple despite what we have been told, we stop bouncing back and forth between past achievements and future concerns and become quite content in the present. This contentment reflects freedom from desire. With it comes an overwhelming perception of stillness not only in the mind but the body and the environment. Now we are prepared to have an intention.

Once we are established in the stillness of universal love we then have a single, subtle thought that represents our desire. (This is called QE Intention taught in the book Eufeeling!)  We are saying, “This is what I want.” Then we just step back and watch to see what happens. That gossamer thought then glides across the stillness like fine mist over a tranquil lake. It disperses and touches all the possible solutions enlivening them, rallying them around your single desire.

Whether we get what we want or not is not an issue. That we are firsthand experiencing the unifying joy of universal love is enough. Seated in the universal organizing presence of universal love like a well behaved child mother treats us to all her delights.

If we trying to create from this we coalesce infinite possibilities into a single occurrence, which in this case is the intention to control, and we find ourselves once again in our past.

Why Your Intention Doesn’t Work (Part II)

Now that you have discovered that you are the center of the universe, something you undoubtedly realized as an infant, you find yourself stuck in time between past and future, classical and quantum physics, control and infinite possibilities. And here is your dilemma…

Control belongs to the past. That is because you can see what you did and the outcome that resulted from your action. You cannot control the future. It is not subservient to cause and effect. The future dances to the beat of a different drummer. Any effort to control the infinite future results in a singularity of sorts. Remember, your potential is infinite but in the end will precipitate out to a single event which then promptly takes its place in your past. When you try to form an intention, control the future, that very effort to narrow down the possible outcomes crystallizes that thought-desire and immediately catapults it into your past. In other words, the instant you think a thought or try to fulfill a desire it becomes solidifies and takes its place in impotent past.

So how can we get what we want? The answer is universal love. By love I don’t mean the romantic kind. I define love as the coming together of differences to create greater harmony. By this definition two atoms coming together to create a molecule of oxygen is just as much of an example of love as two people coming together to create a child. Since the Big Bang, elements have been combining and connecting in ever greater complexity throughout the universe. This tendency to unite things I call universal love. It’s like gravity only on the much more subtle level.

We have many desires but we only have one basic, driving desire and that is to be part of this connecting process on the universal level. We don’t want to be left out. We want to feel whole and at home with the unifying force of creation. Our ability to perceive wholeness, the force that connects all thoughts and things, is hardwired into humanity. Yes, we can perceive universal love but we generally don’t. Up till now we haven’t considered it a priority and so we just haven’t been paying attention.

Another word for universal love is Eufeeling. I personally have taught tens of thousands of people around the world to perceive Eufeeling and benefit immediately from the all-permeating, dynamic force when cognized by the individual. But it is so natural a human phenomenon that it can actually be learned by reading a book.

So how does awareness of the unifying power of universal love (Eufeeling) resolve the future – past paradox and help us get what we want? All will be revealed in Part III of Why Your Intention Doesn’t Work.
