Henri Bergson from his book: Matter and Memory, "But every perception is prolonged into a nascent action; and while the images are taking place and order in this memory, the movements which continue them modify the organism, and create in the body new dispositions towards action. Thus is gradually formed an experience of an entirely different order, which accumulates within the body, a series of mechanisms would up and ready, with reactions to external stimuli ever more numerous and more varied, and answers ready prepared to an ever growing number of possible solicitations. We become conscious of these mechanisms as they come into play; and this consciousness of a whole past of efforts stored up in the present is indeed also a memory, but a memory profoundly different from the first, always bent upon action, seated in the present and looking to the future."
When we get in a rut of accumulated efforts toward our subject we will be in a quandary of repeating our past efforts. Our possibilities are limited as our bodies move in past formulation of composition and exposures.
Our instincts are strong to avoid fear, doubt and anxiety. These are the new living experiences we are forced to face every day of our lives.
It is a matter of creating new movements that nullify our auto responses to outside stimulus.
Take more chances with your exposure, composition and your unique perspective. It is hard in today's jump on any bandwagon image popularity contest not to imitate the image of others.
Put value in looking though your own eyes, your own unique perspective, creating an image you saw not someone else's vision. Technical abilities is the starting point, not the end of seeing your true subject through open eyes. It takes time to stimulate an interaction with a new subject, by being still and aware at the same time. This leads to great imagery.
It is time now to break free from the controlling actions that dominate your life. Your unique vision has been dominated by copycat movements of others efforts. Relax in your own body. Enjoy your burgeoning awareness. Control your instinctive desire to conform.
We need focus and discipline to counteract the growing obsolete structures of human existence. The herd instincts are strong in us, our survival is on the line. But as you can see, we now live in a hierarchy of control through propaganda and misinformation. Alternative truths don't enhance mankind's future it undermines our faith in the truth of outside forces.
We will not demean ourselves by becoming puppets under the threads of false relationships that try and control our relation with our inner vision. We will put ourselves in the most advantageous position to understand our predicament and to unravel some of our old memories of past actions as obsolete and confining with no hope of surviving the coming cattle branding. We will look for unclaimed words of acceptance and movement towards a freedom of choice, not a choice handed down from generation to generation made up to control our very natures.
We will not be lulled into a desperation to pause our durations of analysis of our actions and the images that we see and forget to create our own duration on subjects that have the potential to be created with a freedom and awareness of times illusive impressions.
We will not assume that positive thoughts mean anything but forgetfulness. That negative thoughts are the ones that we must examine and control. And use for our advantage to change.
We have limited our ability to grasp infinite space and infinite choices as an overwhelming diabolical invention of an unknown god. We must embrace choice and not rely on the history of control from action passed down from the elite to the majority population, limiting our ability to see a newness in the world worth fighting for. The old stale facade must come down and a new universal openness for actions must be created as all our older thoughts can be slanted to a corporate message of forgetfulness.
We need a new vocabulary that won't reduce outlives to be servants of the controlling mindset. These minds are afraid of change because they know they will lose their footing and be replaced with a more universal acceptance of many viewpoints with no fabrication of limits.
The herd heading toward the cliff afraid of their own individual thoughts. Afraid to break free from the repetitious lies of the controlling media. Listen harder to the words of these evangelicals who are dissatisfied with their own thoughts and hate the thoughts of those that aren't suffering so they look to persecute and destroy the heaven we are on. They want the world according to their own perverse hatred of anything different than their shallow branding. Like gods in our mythology they want to extract from our rich soil the necessary profits that can sustain their opulent lifestyles. Listen to your minds repulsion toward this form of mind control. You have been conditioned since birth to conform to the status quo, don't stand out from the crowd. Listen to you elders they know the truth.
Media defines our truths. The mindless awareness of greed. Distracting us with fluff to calm our inquisitive natures and lessen our ability to find our own individual truth.
Social media is not your friend. It exploits your need to be seen and heard for profit. It inflates your status, your popularity. These are not what you stand for but only byproducts of a growing chasm between the controlling minds and the sheep getting fat before the slaughter.
Social media diminishes your communication skills, it lessens your ability to think independently
and enhances your need to be accepted not as you are but as you project yourself on a screen, as an alter ego, a pen name without roots of experience.
We seem to believe that hoping for something and waiting for it to manifest itself is the natural flow of existence. That, if we have positive thoughts and just wait, then all good things will appear magically.
Without purpose and effort nothing happens.
When we are negative we build up an auto response to the outside forces that seem to be attacking us. These negative response perceptions condition us to react to our outer environment as a dog responds to a forceful master. This is a bait and switch taking place under the guise of necessary extraction of the earths minerals for profit. By demeaning this world and its beauty they instill in the populace a hatred for the unclean extremities of our influence. We are told we are above nature and nature is their for our giants of industry to exploit. But these are not giants of god like characteristics but simple minded egos that believe they are the chosen few that have a right to destroy the world in their likeness.
To counter act the mesmerizing onslaught of violence on corporate media we must steel ourselves to use our talents and our intuitions and create images with purpose and honesty. We must immerse ourselves in our subjects and create a vision for the future generations.
