Realistic Pessimism: A New Idea You Must Know Right Now

Published

on

Although many influential people support optimism, research reveals that realistic pessimism is also necessary to some extent. A realistic pessimist is an individual who understands that life is uncertain. He admits that human beings lack the power to accurately know what might happen in the future.

Realistic pessimism allows one to realize that anything can happen on the journey of life.  It enables an individual to be mentally prepared for bad things hence reducing the impact that unfavorable life events could bring on his mental state.

It’s the overly optimistic person who becomes more depressed when something bad happens because he believed that things will always work out as he wanted, and he never put into consideration the fact that things can go either way in this unpredictable world. Besides this, it’s easy for this individual to quit during setbacks because he never prepared himself for unexpected events.

I am not arguing against optimism because optimism is good as it enables us to gain confidence, and motivates us to work hard. I just want you to give room for pessimism. Be optimistic but realize that not everything will occur according to your plans. Having this understanding allows you to take precautions and makes you ready for obstacles.

However, some people use pessimism as an excuse for laziness. They claim that working hard towards something is useless because bad things might happen. This is a wrong way of applying pessimism to one’s life. A person who adopts this mentality is lazy.

It’s true that the world’s events are uncertain, but what is certain is that hard work, persistence, perseverance, determination, self-confidence, and self-discipline guarantee prosperity because no obstacle can overcome these qualities.

Lastly, don’t worry when you become pessimistic because it’s your mind’s way of telling you that you lack the power to accurately predict the future. The only future you can predict with accuracy is the past. Realize that you live in an unpredictable world where anything can happen. Prepare yourself mentally for obstacles, but have faith that everything will work out in your favor.

The Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker

The Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker

I love spending my time meditating on life, and I often note down the thoughts that pop into my mind while meditating. Today, I’ll welcome you into my meditations by sharing some of these thoughts with you.

Enjoy:

1.Meditations on Thoughts

The first thing that created everything was thought. Creation could not have happened without the ability to think. Our thoughts can thus create worlds, and we should master them to ensure they only create good worlds for us.

2.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence/God as Our Father and Mother

As the mother, she is constantly providing all creatures with everything they need to survive, and as a father, he hardens all creatures by giving them challenging situations that force them to grow into their full potential.

3.Meditations on Suffering

We suffer not because of our experiences but because of our thoughts regarding our experiences. A thoughtless person – if he exists – seldom suffers because he focuses on the awareness of the experience instead of what he wants or doesn’t want about the experience.

4.Meditations on The Lack of Inner Peace

We seldom attain inner peace because we are always thinking about the future. We never relax and focus on the now. When we focus on the now, we’ll attain inner peace because the present moment is always okay.

5.Meditations on the Intuition

Ancient folks knew many things without researching. They knew about poisonous, medicinal, and edible plants. They knew about the stars, energy fields, the third eye, how our emotions affect the body, and so on.

Their primary source of knowledge was their intuition. We, the modern people, have lost our intuitive powers because we over-focus on acquiring material possessions. This focus results in attachment to our possessions hence causing emotions, such as fear and worry, which suppress our intuitive abilities.

6. Meditations on Our Short Term Existence on Planet Earth and What We Must do About It

I just realized that time is flying. Soon we’ll all leave the earth and allow other souls to experience the physical universe. Soon, our bodies we’ll decay, and we’ll be bones. We’ll be gone forever, and we’ll never experience our current life form again.

For this reason, we must appreciate all our moments and everyone in our lives. As well, we must use the only opportunity we have to exploit our physical powers and live to our full potential.

Conclusions

These are some of the things I often think about when I am alone. I believe deep thinking is more reliable in providing us with enlightening knowledge than reading books written by mainstream historians, scientists, and philosophers, whose main aim is to drown us into delusions and prevent us from knowing the TRUTH.

Thank you

The Statistics of the Dead and Why I Choose to be Grateful

The Statistics of the Dead and Why I Choose to be Grateful

If more than 150,000 people die every month, and today none of your friends or family members is dead, then you have a big reason to smile.’ – Sadhguru, Indian Mystic.

Before falling in love with esoteric philosophy, I used to be sad and angry about nothing. My focus on material possessions and the social status prevented me from noticing the infinite blessings I had.

I worried about not having more possessions than my friends, and I was angry at life because some people – who I thought were happy – despised me. This crap ended after I stumbled upon the above quote, meditated on it, and researched about the world’s death rates.

I discovered that more than 2,000 people die every day in car crashes, and about 1 million people die in road crashes every year. Besides car crashes, more than 2.5 million people die from diseases every year, and in total, about 40 million people die every year.

Moreover, I realized that the world has lost about 30 million people from January 1st, 2019 to July 15th, 2019.

These statistics enlightened me that more than 5,000 people die every day, and therefore, more than 10,000 people mourn every day. It then dawned on me that I am a blessed person who must be happy every day because all my family members are alive.

Again, the death statistics reminded me of how stupid I had been: I always worried about lacking replaceable material possessions instead of being thankful that the most precious people in my life were alive. People who are more willing to help me than the rest of the world

I thus shifted my focus from worry to being grateful for the amazing irreplaceable people I had; the only magnificent beings who can go out of their way to help me.

For this reason, I smile every day when I wake up in the morning and fail to receive death news about my family members. I know I will lose my loved ones one day, but in this period that they are alive, I know I have a BIG reason to be happy and thankful for the mysterious grace that keeps them alive.

May the Infinite Intelligence bless all your family members, and enlighten you about their importance in your life so that you love and be grateful for them.

May Peace of Mind be With You.
