Dependancy and True Self

I am finding that I am a little at odds with some on redbubble re certain opinions I have. I am deeply sensitive and in my upbringing was exposed to dependency pretty heavily.

I am an only child to parents who are incredibly sensitive but who both had insecurity stemming back to their childhood. When I was born I feel that they looked toward me as a savior of sorts. Life was not providing them with full satisfaction and like many parents a child was seen as the answer to their prayers.

However whilst their love and dependency was enormous the energy I felt was fluctuating greatly. Not just because of their expectations for me but also because I felt their emotions so acutely. When they were happy and free I would feel a wonderful existence but if they were anxious I would feel this too.

The thing is I think it is a human condition to be needy and dependant upon externals for our happiness. However this is exactly what it is in my opinion – CONDITIONING. This is so strong that most of us support each other in looking for saviors. We are so needy for love from parents and romantic partners and from society and from our kids when we have them.

All of this dependency is just creating more dependency when the initial external people don’t fulfill our needs. Alcohol, drugs, TV, MONEY ect ect are all things that people become addicted to for a source of joy. Once again this is all natural if we believe in the human condition. I for one however choose to believe in perfection and believe it is found in the souls of each and every person.

However in order to access and materialize this perfection we need to look deeply into the beliefs and dependencies that we presently live with. This is one of the main reasons I thought of creative inspirations and must say that overall the site is really inspiring me and hopefully many of you guys aswell.

On a society level whilst most present that they are happy and secure I believe the true state of affairs is very different. Depression and mental health issues are growing steadily and I have not met too many people who do not live with a fear of loss. I truly believe that if we really exercised the willpower to think as gifted people rather than victims hurt by loss that we would create a wonderful world of truly empowering love.
