“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Connotations: A secret we should all know 201

What are connotations? So it turns out we have divided our languages into the positive and negative.

brave-foolhardy (brash)
determined-hard headed (stubborn)

So you will notice above that all the words on the left have  positive connotations and the words on the right have negative. Both words however mean the same thing, the only difference being that the person views the act as either positive or negative. So this is what is meant by connotation. It is useful to also know the word denotation, which means what a words actually means its: definition.

So what does the fact that we have created and use words that have built in their definition a meaning of positivity or negativity? Personally, I see this as a form of a secret underhanded enslavement, where we in a moment react. Because if we were to separate out the positive and negative meaning and express explicitly that we view something as positive or negative we would speak like this:

You are very relax, but in a negative way.
You are very arrogant, but in a positive way.
You are very brave, but in a negative sense.
You are very foolhardy, and I think that is good.
You are very determined, and I think that is bad.
You are very hard headed and I think that is good.

So you see? What people are actually expressing within their word is an opinion of positivity or negativity, essentially: what they think or believe. The thing is that no one is really aware of this. People speak and react automatically to circumstances and situations without awareness that that they are merely expressing a personal preference or opinion or point of view, and not actually a fact. Positive and negative emotions, feelings, judgements or opinions can never be a factual content. There is no fact when it comes to this. It is always a relative view point depending on who is viewing the situation, and not dependent on the situation itself, but more so on the person viewing it.

One example is the word DIRTY. When you look at the word dirty what do you feel? What do you think about or imagine? Look again at the word: dirty. What happens when you remove the Y. You get Dirt. So let me ask you this, is dirt negative? Dirt is soil, and literally earth. Is the Earth negative? Is soil negative? Everything you eat comes from the earth and soil and dirt. So we have made an extreme of words. When we bring dirt into the house this is called dirty, and we feel negative or emotional. What is the root cause of this? Well we have allowed our emotions, and feelings, our thoughts and opinions to distort our perception of reality. We in essence have created our own personal prison, whose foundation are the very words we speak and communicate with. Words are the bricks in that make up our prison cells, instead of being a house we can live in.

Its important to walk a process to clean, purify, rectify, and put into place, our words and our emotions, feelings, thoughts and opinions. If you are ready, all the support is here, visit lite.desteniiprocess.com to sign up. The journey is long, hard, and worth it.
