Distortion in Idealism

What an irony one must claim for how can idealism be a distortion.

What an irony one must claim for how can idealism be a distortion.

In the quest for an idealistic society, principles, and values one loses an important factor of the unknown. There is truth in idealism, however, when idealism becomes the goal a distorted aspect bring forth as a result of the charge behind it. Why must one thing be idealistic? What purpose does it serve for an experience that should or must be that of which is known?

The questions reveal an emotional charge behind idealism. In a world of perfection, there is no growth but there is a certainty, a known outcome. However, that denies the truth of the unknown, surrendering to that of which one knows nothing of, and that is the beauty of this existence. It leaves space for infinite creativity and honors aspects of one’s blind spots.

The acceptance of the present moment, surrender to the unknown, and trust in one’s intuition creates a driving force of euphoric experiences. Meanwhile, the rejection of the present moment is merely a rejection of one’s own hidden wounds such that the perfect world promises certainty which provides conditional trust. The conditional trust then allows for conditioned feelings of safety and a false sense of surrender. The world where things go by the book, the lack of trust in a God, the fear of the unknown, the sense of no control, and the fear of losing one’s sense of stability. It appears as a threat to one’s mental and physical freedom. It is fixed not flowing. On the contrary, the irony is that in the release of these fears one can begin to experience a true and unconditional sense of freedom. Trust is built between the known and the unknown, in the union of the Self and God. The trust builds a consistent flow to the current. Any resistance to the current causes stagnation and persistence. It creates density to the flow increasing agility and stiffness, thereby feeling restrictive and constricted.

Expansiveness is therefore created in the presence of a flowing current. The water/fluidity of the Self must move freely in a flowing state for expansion and true liberation. Once restricted, the threat arises. Thus, the concept of idealism is birthed as a consequence of the desire for control over the unknown and the lack of trust. There is truth in idealistic concepts, however, there isn’t one defined path to an outcome. The rejection or denial of the present moment and path is a mistrust of the Self in relation to God, and the fear of the unknown. Honoring each path is embracing the infinite possibilities for creation, in that lies an ascending path and a descending path. The principles derived from idealism such as high integrity provides a path towards the ascending pathway, and the lack of idealism such as vengeance moves one to a descending timeline. There is truth to idealism, however, it is a tool and not a path itself for that creates stiffness and stagnation.

Finding the zero point (the balance, being observant) in all experiences and emotions is key. Neutrality in the chaos, serenity in the present moment. It is not to bypass an experience or an emotion, it is the observation of the narrative and storyline of the thought-process related to that particular event and emotion. It must be felt for the body to release the stagnation and shift it back to its natural state of harmony, fluidity. Holding back the emotion or forcefully dwelling on it creates resistance, tension, and stagnation to the flow.

Any charge to any emotion and experience is a place of distorted/destructive thoughts that keep the body in fight-flight stimulation. The body must be in a flowing current (parasympathetic system) for expansion and creativity. To be in the state of a flowing/fluid current requires trust in the unknown, flexibility and adaptation to change, and a free flow to ascending principles. There is no one-way road, however, it does not mean to let go of values and principles that idealism brings about.
