THIS IS THE OCEAN SPEAKING  

IT IS ME, THE OCEAN SPEAKING TO YOU

LISTEN CLEARLY TO THIS OFFERED VIEW

AS I SHOW MY EBB AND FLOW

GETTING CONTROL HAS BEEN SOLVED! (QUOTE)LOL

“AT LAST I HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO BE IN CONTROL. IT WAS JUST A MISUNDERSTANDING THAT MADE IT SO DIFFICULT. IF YOU WANT TO BE IN CONTROL, REALIZE YOU HAVE IT UNTIL YOU LOOK FOR IT. IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT IT WILL REMAIN LOST AS LONG AS YOU SEEK IT.”

“THE WIZARD OF OZ” MY CRAZY INTERPRETATION- OR NOT-

POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”

This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.

IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION 

AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO

Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…

These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..

-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol

BUT!

PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL  ——

(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?

BUT!

RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….

MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL

FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-

THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”

— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN  RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL

CRAZY THAT IT IS CRAZY (QUOTE)

“EINSTEIN HAD SAID THAT A GENERATION OF IDIOTS WOULD BE CREATED WHEN TECHNOLOGY SURPASSED HUMAN INTERACTION. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO DEBATE THAT HIS STATEMENT HAS ALREADY PROVEN TO BE CORRECT. I’M WONDERING IF HE WOULD HAVE UPDATED THAT TO – FEARING THE DAY THAT CRAZINESS SURPASSED NORMAL BRAIN FUNCTION, CAUSING THE MINORITY OF RATIONAL MINDS TO ACT CRAZY IN ORDER TO BLEND IN WITH THE MAJORITY.”

ACTING CRAZY VS BEING CRAZY (QUOTE)

“IF YOU ACT CRAZY INTENTIONALLY, THAT EVIDENTLY PROVES YOU ARE NOT. THOSE WHO ARE BEHAVING CRAZY,  BUT NOT ACTING, ARE TRULY THE ONES TO FEAR”

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS (Thought)

Many of the new year resolutions people set are for personal change. Anytime someone does something to improve themselves or their quality of life is an admirable trait that hopefully is done more regularly than on a annual basis.

WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS????????

HOW ABOUT WE SET A NEW YEARS RESOLUTION THAT INCLUDES ANOTHER PERSON THAT COULD BENEFIT FROM IT?

We look out for ourselves and/or family first (hopefully) all year long….. I’m saying that maybe a new year resolution should be something that applies to benefit another person or cause. Use your imagination of the potential outcome this action could have. It might not be so easy to give up knowing that somebody else is involved with the outcome of your action. If you make some change that helps somebody else think how rewarding that could be! Now apply that to your community, neighbor, friend, or if everybody did that as their resolution!

DON’T GET DISTRACTED OR OVERWHELMED BY THE BIG PICTURE! JUST FOCUS ON APPLYING IT TO 1 OTHER BESIDES YOURSELF.

Success on the New Year’s resolution will not only be more attainable it also be collectively supported.

Just a random idea.

WHEN SOMEONE IS TELLING YOU HOW YOU FEEL (RANT)

As we live “OUR” life, there will be some great moments, some terrible moments, and a whole lot of moments that are in between. “It goes without saying”(I RANT ON THIS SAYING), SO, hopefully this is the only time I say something after that statement. haha

It’s always the extremes that stand out and gather the most recognition. It’s ironic that my previous statement has the phrase “goes without saying”, because thats exactly what we want for those moments, yet it’s those moments people feel most compelled to say something to us. If things are extremely low, even though I’m not feeling that way or whatever these people project onto saying they know how you feel, or whatever drama talk that they are more bossed about emotional than the person experiencing it. Try and tell them “YOU’RE NOT WORRIED OR UPSET IN ANYWAY” and they keep going!!!!!!! Telling you that you are upset, angry, or whatever lol….. Sometimes they actually make you lol….. Again, this is when you rather “it goes without saying” be applied to these situations, because you really don’t want to hear their daytime tv programing psychological profiling expertise on you —- lol

For me, it doesn’t matter if it is a moment of greatness or moment of misfortune. Those are only possible to experience and feel through my perception, not by any observer and should not solicit any advice or opinions to someone who has not asked. The most important people in your life are there and offering conversation throughout the majority of events in your life, while the unimportant/acquaintances are right up to the front line to contribute when your are at extremes. I can not speak for everyone, but, I do not seek praise for achievements nor sympathy for misfortunes. I WOULD LIKE EVERYONE UNDERSTAND  some things that might appear as achievements are actually misfortunes to me as well as some things appearing as misfortunes are actually achievements. THIS IS REAL IMPORTANT ON MANY DIFFERENT TOPICS THAT PEOPLE SHOULD NOT TO PROJECT WHAT THEY THINK PEOPLE ARE FEELING! BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE FEELING, EVEN BY SOME CHACE YOU DO.,.,.,ok LOL DON’T TELL THEM HOW THEY FEEL.. I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY MOST OF US ALL AT SOMETIMES HAVE DIFFICULTIES FIGURING OUT OURSELVES HOW WE FEEL, AND THAT IS OKAY. THERE WAS SOMETHING ELSE I WANTED TO SAY, BUT I’LL JUST LEAVE IT THERE. When opinions are needed, I will ask without hesitation.

Check out my rant on the term “goes without saying”

Opinions ?

If someone is consciously aware of having Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), could their conscious personality act as a therapist between the other personalities?

Understand why it’s hard to understand

I’ve decided that I should include some informative content without my attempted comedic alterations or disguise. This category will be for that purpose only.

The first thing I could think to talk about something relevant to understanding my blog.  So I’m going to briefly explain the psychology that makes it difficult to entertain or accept new ideas.

Don’t panic! I’m not going to make this complicated with scientific or medical research studies, or use medical speech like influence and function by the amygdalae medially within the temporal lobes primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions….. lol

Only reference I’ll make is this one
Leon Festinger (1957) proposed cognitive dissonance theory, which states that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes maladaptive behavior.

I’m just trying to show that there is more to the way we think than we are consciously aware of.
