Action vs Reaction
"Thoughts about the past tend to take the form of reviewing past events, often critically, but sometimes simply to savour the emotion originally experienced."
"Play the waiting game of life. Sometimes reacting too quickly is forgetting why you are here in the first place. We are all masters of reality. Think about this for a moment and watch how your thoughts change".
There are numbers of times when we find ourselves reacting to circumstances which periodically seem beyond our control. Ironically, rarely are we even aware of such situations until after the fact. Having allowed our negative emotions to be the dominant control during external physical associations we readily react to another's negative conscious and subconscious intercommunications. Not understanding or being privy to another's conscious or subliminal thoughts and in turn being highly sensitive to another's emotional state causes our emotions to pattern themselves parallel to those we are in contact with.
Reacting to difficulties is not the solution to reach a positive end-result. Each time we react we allow the other party to control our emotions and therefore we are no longer acting on our own personal emotional beliefs. Opportunities or goals we have set are then dismissed in our conscious thoughts and we follow the interfering persons wishes, hopes and negative desires.
Reacting to problems instead of designing a formidable plan of action fails each and every time. When we consider changing reality we must be very careful not to allow another to interfere with our emotional game plan or to take our minds off the corrective emotion required to fulfill our reality change. If we do allow interference to change our emotional states and thoughts we are no longer functioning in an active role but a reactive role. In other words we are no longer in control of our creative thought processes.
Reaction means losing total emotional control. When we react to circumstances which consist of interaction or communications with a second or third party we can then conclude that we would always be functioning with one or more negative emotions. When we function with one or more negative emotions it is impossible to complete our personal game-plans because we are trying to complete a change of reality in a non-positive emotional state.
As discussed throughout the previous chapters, life in general cannot be altered without a positive emotional game plan. Inadvertently we do have a tendency to digest external emotional feelings. When this happens we all have an emotional internal alarm which warns us we have fallen victim to anothers psychological entrapment. The alarm triggers an awareness of our present emotional state and additional stress patterns, which causes the inability to make rational emotional decisions. It further shows an indecisiveness. These notable signs can be viewed as being a warning-light warning us that we have been party to a psychological infection. Deceptively we also have a tendency not to heed the sounding alarm and stand rigid believing the thoughts we have are our own. When we do not heed our internal alarm it is a sure sign our emotional belief systems are not well defined and as a result we did not plan our events with a firm knowledge about which emotions governed our final decisions.
Practical experience designing reality changes will eventually reduce interference from outside sources. Through trial and error we all begin to see the ramifications of psychological infections but it is not necessary to continuously go through life wondering if we have begun a reality change correctly or not. The object then is to plan our reality changes with a high positive corrective emotion and, then practically, physically and intuitively, follow our guideline to the tenth degree. Following our guidelines then is action and not reaction.
Firmly planting a creative thought in your mind and not deviating from the thought will insure you that the end-results will be exactly as you planned. However, it is absolutely necessary to physically act out the game-plan. If you wait for your plan of action or guidelines to come to you, you are then placing yourself in a precarious position, because waiting is nothing more then indecisiveness, and indecisiveness will leave you vulnerable to external interjection. Once indecisiveness takes hold fear then comes into play and once fear or any of the other negative emotions become party to your guidelines the combined negative emotions will cause you to react to the situation and control of the fantasy is lost. Reacting to indecisiveness is nothing short of playing with fire because assuredly everyone gets burnt. Reacting to a problem places everyone on the defensive sidelines, pulling in all directions and stretching the guidelines out of their original text.
When a reactive role takes place the subconscious mind tries to warn you or overcome the barriers you set by dissecting the external data and it re-juggles the original game-plan to offset the negative emotional input. If the conscious mind is receptive, alternative guidelines are formed. But when this happens there always ends up to be a delay in completing the original goal. Until we accept the messages from the subconscious mind we stumble through a vast amount of contaminated material trying to consciously sort out the positive emotions from the negative emotions. Needless to say, we have been through stressful experiences numbers of times in the past and probably still are presently trying to decide if we are following our original action guidelines or whether we are floundering because we reacted due to the contamination. The only answer to the problem is knowing exactly which emotions are governing everyone involved in the guidelines at the exact moment in time. Continuously using The 21 Emotions Exercise throughout the reality change could eliminate the possibilities of viewing your guidelines through rose-colored glasses and will always confirm whether you have stepped off your path of positive thinking.
Positive thinking creates action or in other words gives you the incentive to follow through to the end of your pre-planned goals. Once you have started implementing your decision, under no circumstances can you deviate from the original subconscious data because the final outcome cannot be reached without a firm positive plan. Therefore action and not reaction produces a positive harmony within the game-plan and success is the end-result.
Religiously functioning in an active role greatly enhances your internal knowledge of emotions. With each experience or decision you gain the insight as to which emotions are predominant during the decision period. Yet foremost you learn to accept the actual feeling of those primary three emotions. As stated numbers of times in previous chapters each event or action consists of different combinations of the three primary emotions. The positive emotion we are striving for, once understood, eventually will be implanted in our conscious minds and in turn if the emotional feeling is strong enough and accepted by the conscious mind the positive emotion then works as the Chairman of the Board and makes sure the negative emotion is kept in control and allows the corrective emotion to be the spokesman or advisor. Under controlled conditions unless the Chairman of the Board or positive emotion becomes subject to outside influences it is highly unlikely the game-plan can be altered or not succeed. Furthermore as the harmonious interaction proceeds you are then able to fully recognize the impact of the three primary emotions for the specific decision or reality change and implant those feelings in your memory banks for future reference.
Because you are being bombarded with a number of contaminated emotions during a reaction and not action situation, you will find trying to hold on to your memory of the emotions quite impossible. This problem exists due to the lack of time and ability to fully concentrate all your efforts on any of the three primary emotions. The mental confusion which takes place in the conscious mind, the subconscious mind and the actual mechanics of the brain cause short circuits and vital information is lost in the foray. This information affects your abilities to retain the actual feelings and therefore you lose a vast amount of natural and practical experience because of the confusion of knowing exactly which emotions you are actually feeling at that exact moment.
It is vitally strategic to be cognizant and comprehend that the confusion and disorder are the culprits to reversing a well planed reality change. With that knowledge you also must understand that both confusion and disorder breed negative emotions and infect your very thoughts and creative capabilities. Once the confusion and disorder disease affects the primary three emotions during decisions inadvertently you cease to continue your game-plan and slowly flounder trying to re-track your emotional steps to offset the infection. If there is floundering the original primary emotions for the specific decision are left vulnerable to further external emotional contamination. However the real issue when confusion takes hold is that your awareness of all your emotions, both primary and external are unable to be retained and understood.
The primary requisite then is to do everything possible to not react to situations where control is no longer possible. Establishing a firm and proper guideline intuitively; subconsciously; consciously and without fail following these guidelines explicitly and then actively partaking in an active role will ensure total and undeniable success to all reality changes. As reality changes take place and proof of success is shown we all then develop an enormous ability to gain awareness of each and every emotion available to us.
