FINGERS CROSSED CONFUSION

CROSSING YOUR FINGERS 

     Some people cross their fingers for good luck, and also cross their fingers to negate a lie. This was something that naturally caught my attention!

     A superstitious gesture used to promote good luck, is also used to protect/defend statements and actions of deceit***

***A person can cross their fingers for “GOOD LUCK” or use it to protect them while telling a lie!!….

They believe that lying with their “fingers crossed” protects them from the responsibility or liability to that lie.

HOW CAN A GESTURE BE USED IN BOTH A POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WAY BY THE SAME PERSON?

SAME PERSON IS WHAT MAKES IT PROBLEMATIC. It is easy understandable that gestures have different meaning through different cultures religions and whatever. But, for this superstitious gesture to have “selective” meaning used by the same person is very interesting lol

GET IT?????

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

WHEN YOU SEEM LOST, OTHERS MIGHT TRY AND HELP YOU SEE THE WAY (QUOTE)

“IT IS USUALLY DURING TIMES OF NEED THAT OTHERS WILL WANT TO HELP YOU SEE THE WAY OUT. AS GOOD AS THIER INTENTIONS MAY BE, REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ONLY AN OFFERING OF THIER VIEW. YOU SHOULD STILL ULTIMATELY COME TO RESOLVE SEEING IT YOUR WAY, NOT THIERS.”

JUST FOR ARGUMENT

I’M NOT ONE TO ARGUE LOL

BUT

AN ARGUMENT, BY DEFINITION, IS (AN EXCHANGE OF DIVERGING OR OPPOSITE VIEWS, TYPICALLY A HEATED OR ANGRY ONE)…….

MY QUESTION IS – WHY ARE OPPOSING IDEAS OR VIEWS USUALLY EXCHANGED WITH SUCH RESISTANCE AND DEFIANCE? RATHER THAN BEING WELCOME AND DESIRED?

I’VE SAID IT MANY TIMES, IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS……..BUT, AGAIN I’LL SAY –

OPPOSING THOUGHTS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME! THEY ARE ACTUALLY BEING ASKED FOR AND NEEDED!!!!!!!

EVEN THOSE ABLE TO THINK UNLIMITED THOUGHTS, ARE STILL LIMITED BY THIER THOUGHTS!!!!!  THERE IS AN IMMEASURABLE VALUE TO THOUGHTS CONTRIBUTED BY OTHERS    CAN NOT EVEN DESCRIBE IT — 

ARE THEY YOUR THOUGHTS? (QUOTE)
