Adversion vs. Ascension

 

“A great maturity opens in the human psyche when we accept that we can control our impulses by conditioning our thoughts, and that we alone are responsible for our emotions and reactions in life.”

 

 

Coach Jesse

 

If fear in any manifestation is winning in our life, it is because we have made a choice to accept it.

 

We have many other impulses that could win over fear. Some of which are those impulses to be strong, bold, excited, compassionate, and great…. To be free.

 

In my industry the example I see most is this:

 

The person who is living unwell has recognized in some facet that they are, indeed, unwell. The becoming unwell was a consequence of the choices they have made in their life (generally speaking, from an idea that “unwell” is defined as deconditioned, ill, weak, etc.). The climb from unwell to well, from well to functional, from functional to optimal, brings out many symptoms of fear (embarrassment, close-mindedness, judgment, denial etc.) even though they know that their very physical existence is in danger.

 

If we are not meeting our needs as a human being, or desire to be well, our NEED to be well, we are not free. We are acting from aversion rather than ascension.

 

Acting from aversion is a life motivated by fear. That is a short-term, self-protective, egotistic, victim based approach to life.

 

A life motivated by ascension gives personal freedom. To act from our true self toward long term growth, true self-expression (not motivated by social standards or pressures), and an enlightened effort full of mindfulness, compassion and freedom.

 

It is clear one is the condition of self-dislike, oppression, and suffering.

It is clear the other is the condition of self-mastery, spontaneity, and fulfillment.

 

Where you are in life is the manifestation of your choices.

 

Now we have a new choice to make; to live acting from aversion or ascension.

 

 

Aversion – the act of dislike, opposition, or preventing

Ascension- the act of rising, ascending, or growing
