Personality is both unconscious and conscious.

To understand better the problems leading us away from freedom, is to have the awareness that just as disease and poisons affect the body, so the mind is affected by the disease of the poison of harmful emotions. Not only do we fight for freedom in the physical environment, but more problematic is the battle within ourselves. We struggle to free ourselves of the constant surge of conflicting emotions of egotism, pride, hatred, lust, jealousy, anger, and fear as we attempt to be assertive, and find relationships or mates, and to do our duty in the work environment, and live out our cultural adaptation in a differing society.

Psychologically speaking, and individual is bound by many complexes, instinctually, and emotionally. All of these complexes have a common hub, ego, and therefore, have an enormous effect on ones emotional tendencies. However, this is not to say, that the complexes themselves are good or bad. It all depends on how one uses them. They can be used for growth and expansion of ones personality for the good of all, or the destruction and constriction of ones personality. It simply has to do with the nature of the complex and how one goes about handling it. It does one no good to repress these complexes or try to forget them. Impulsive expulsion of them will not serve anyone. Balance is the key to the spiritual being, with childlike nature of spontaneity, and freedom. This one, will speak from deep wisdom and pure truth, lovingly, speaking of life, and the aspects of human existence, and one can feel the total presence of an infinite power of peace in this blended personality of the aged childlike one.

What is personality? Can we really be free while living in the constructs of it? That is the question. Personality is both unconscious and conscious, and is affected by its environment. Human beings are comprised of ego, mind, body, and senses, a complex, philosophically speaking. The most important aspect of the human being that is left out to a large degree in psychology, is the consciousness, I am, I think, I will, I perceive, I act. Our experience of consciousness is direct within us, and our experience of consciousness of that of others, that we experience, is indirect. We are continuously struggling in these complexes of the inner and outer world we live in. We are in the incessant ebb and flow of adjusting and readjusting ourselves. It is our lack of balance that cause the incessant ebb and flow. Our failure to experience peace, holds us back from the power of freedom, which is inherent in all of us. This which we would recognize if it weren’t for our flight or fight reactions. It is this very reaction alone that clearly indicates whether we are lacking stability or not, that is the stability that freedom brings.

  1. That is true. Even though there are some things we can’t control, a lot of what we experience as reality comes from our own perception of things. Very thoughtful post 🙂

    Btw I just found out that my posts may not be showing up in my subscribers’ WordPress Readers if they had subscribed before I changed my domain name (which I did 3 weeks ago). So I am now having to send this message to every subscriber before that time if they could kindly unsubscribe & resubscribe to my blog, by just unclicking and clicking on the “Following” button at the top of my page http://www.yourdailydoseblog.com

    I hate to bother everyone about this, but I really value your continued readership. Thank you so much and sorry for the inconvenience!! I really appreciate it!! 🙂
