Most beliefs are formed in early childhood, many we are not even aware of. There is a big difference between the power of beliefs, based on whether they are fundamental or ancillary.
A fundamental belief would be that you are not loved or worthy of love. Developing this belief causes a disconnection with the world, and the people around you.
This disconnection with people sets you adrift in the world, with no connection to society or your place in it. You start to experience the world from the external in as opposed to the internal out. Your a passenger not a driver, set up to become a victim, if your luck doesn’t hold.
Life just happens, you don’t believe in anything and you don’t take responsibility for anything.You become dependent on the world and others to take care of you.You develop an addictive personality, easily addicted to anything that changes the way you feel.
In this situation you set yourself up for constant frustration. Life doesn’t deliver what you want. We want to be made happy, by getting a particular thing or having a particular experience. Until we get it we live in expectation. Happiness is just around the corner, but never here and now.
As we wait there is a constant gnawing, a sense of irritation, because life is failing to deliver. Unconsciously we feel cheated, everybody seems to be getting what they want. Perversely when the mind doesn’t get what it wants it feels let down.
Our expectations have been swollen to impossible proportions, to which life can never satisfy. The desires get fiercer and harder then ever to satisfy, this results in a mounting sense of frustration and isolation.
This establishes a pattern of a background of anger, fed by the feeling that our deep desires are not being fulfilled. This anger is always just beneath the surface of consciousness. This leaves a very low level of tolerance, so that even a small irrelevant irritation, is enough to make us explode in anger.
As always thanks for visiting. Dave
