On Being Natural- Domination by The Blind Force

Reading

On the surface, it might appear that letting everything “be natural” is easy and effortless, but in fact, this is not so. Many people assume that just “accepting the way things are”  is “natural.” Actually, there is the dominating force behind everything. If we let events transpire randomly in our lives without understanding, then the dominating force is a blind force to us.

Being under the domination of a blind force means letting events run their chaotic way. This implies that what is natural is a force (or forces) which moves and causes the actions and reactions of the world, and that we neither understand that force, nor do we want to understand it. Being under domination of a blind source implies that natural force dominates the world and our lives, and we live just like animals, utterly at the mercy of nature. In such case there is no purpose in saying, “Let’s be Natural.”

We do not want to be dominated by a blind force. We must live with nature; we have to understand nature. We should not go against the Natural Laws.

Level 1: Paraphrasing-

State in your own words the meaning of each sentence.

We may think it is simple to let go and go with the flow. It is very difficult. Most of us settle for the way things are as “natural” and are blind to the energy that controls us.

When we understand nature, instead of going against it, we flow with the masters of the unseen. When we are clueless about what is going on in our lives we become slaves this unseen power. 

When we are slaves to this all powerful influence  are life becomes messed up. This power(s) is the source of our actions and reactions. We not only do not understand this power but we also do not want to understand it.  When live our lives like clueless animals, we are ruled by a natural power. We are unable to choose to “be Natural.”

Don’t want to be slaves rules by an invisible power? Open to and accept nature to know nature. We must go with the flow of the laws of nature to be natural.


Level 2: Explicating

  • State the main point. We unknowingly are dominated by a natural force(s) of nature. Go with the flow of nature, to begin to naturally know nature, and not be dominated by nature. 
  • In other words…. Wake up and look. Are you are living life just like an animal?
  • For example…allowing people and circumstances to control your life, moods, and state of mind? Twelve O’clock Fido, time to eat!
