I was watching a video from a woman who felt that her public speaking engagement was a total disaster and listed her numerous insecurities. She thought of how people perceived her, and went through every iteration of self analysis possible. I have done this so many times I got what she was doing, and realized how difficult it is to unwind from this logical path.
So why does the mind need to do this? Or is it a design flaw?
I have found I manifest this when creating artwork as well. Even though I have done this for years, the voice creeps in.......especially if I am creating in a public environment. Is this a fear based (survivalist) reaction to threatening stimulus, therefore the paranoia is justified, just not understood?
What I mean is that we try to reconcile what we are feeling with what the environment is telling us on a subconscious level.
What would a society look like if there was a mutual search for transcendent ideals where many of these negative manifestations were eliminated through the intent of peaceful identification and dissolution through behavior modifications self imposed?
