You can be for or against relationships and their outcome, you can be for or against Marriage as it stands today , you can even be for or against civil unions either way your interactions with people leave you with perspective, and an impression. ‘POSITIVE ILLUSIONS ” – positive views of oneself that are not necessarily deeply in reality .
Can you Deceive yourself ? frivolously think and act in a manner contrary to who you really are ? KnowThySelf – Self reflection a hard task to face. Looking at the man in the mirror like the Legend Michael Jackson left for us to Adhere to. Phantasmic to your five senses , your reality or realm seemingly Subconsciously accurate to your perception, rarely do we challenge the attributes associated to us by close forbearers or associates , but when they do challenge our Perception we counter with a natural defense. The thought of the illusion being revealed ultimately breach the delicate structure in place built by years of subconsciously creating something you believe to be true. Similar to a Pathological liar, your Truth is not Really the reality. Every study I encounter place these attributes to low Self-esteem. the Brain has a way of correcting faults or comforting you to make life and survival much more easy. we project some of our Positive Illusions onto Others, Which in reality can be healthy if confirmed, such as Monogamy or sensuality, emotional stability and motivation level. unhealthy illusions lead to emotional damage which can alter a personality if the illusion was deeply rooted in reality.
Acceptance of real and not illusions can open you to a different personality trait. relationships are more rewarding and bond genuinely formed if both or all are aware of themselves as-well as have an awareness of people and character traits easily thru observations. once you know reality spotting an illusion becomes a substantial part of your character.
The consequence of not dealing with our own indiscretions or inequities is a problem and implodes when we challenge others based on our own misconceptions. for Instance ( john chapter 8 )
1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
Most Positive illusion cover Negative attributes. quick to Judge or speak of a persons irrational behavior , scan your activities ask others if you have ever displayed that type of behavior. The answers shed light as to how much you contradict yourself. First and Strongest complaint is possibly that of your own self infliction or Projection, we cant continue to cover our faults with a mental superiority complex. western thinking forces us to shift responsibility away from our self and imprint it to others. character flaw enforced in an educational system that does not reward Positive creativity but will punish rebellious activity. its the same as the church claiming to save you from your repetitive sins thru constant confession. the Problem of self reflection, self responsibility, and self accountability . the Mirror is hard to acknowledge when you truly face the real person not the person you created to hide behind !
