Trash……i believe we are complicated creatures. I don’t think that is up for debate actually…..and your question resonates with me. We are such a conglomeration of nurture, chemistry, socio-economics….environmental experience…..and not the least which is the constant bombardment of media and media messages, everywhere, all the time . I dare say that media may well be one of the largest influences on people their lives and mental state today……. at least in the more technologically advanced countries.

Pressure on, and expectations of, people are also on an ever increasingly steeper and steeper curve….expectations of children…infants actually, to start their life transition and path at an ever increasingly early age. In some circles if you don’t go to the right play-school, or prep-school, your doomed at the tender age of 4. Really….see I believe that’s crazy….really crazy??? Everybody must excel…..or be labeled a cast away….labeled by whom??? TV blasts messages at people for years and years on end…not just the news media which is owned by the top 10 $$$$ families in the US, with their own agenda of having it ALL……..but advertisements too…. they have an agenda, and it’s not your health or welfare!!. There is a reason commercials and magazine covers cost huge money to produce…..if you think they don’t have highly paid Psychiatrists working on all advertising campaigns to determine the best way to get into the psyche of the market…… one would be sadly mistaken. So with all of this stimuli bombarding people from womb to tomb is there any wonder why people struggle with a myriad of issues……let alone trying to determine the source or root of their issues??? Are people confused….stressed….feeling odd…like they don’t belong and don’t measure up…..can’t keep all the balls in the air? Ostrasized, if they appear to be other than what is vogue or different from the model ……of course……..my gawd look around…….it is nuts out there…..crazy actually and spiraling!!!! Well screw em…..I won’t play…..never have really…..I don’t believe it’s healthy…..I’m my own man and it bothers people……a lot!!! Tuff shit!!!

I’m not a big conspiracy theorist by any means….not at all!!! However, I do try live my life aware…..by that I mean aware of what is out there, the marketing establishment…the political machine and the tools and money at their disposal and how they are used and the morality they deploy to meet their end. I know what this sounds like….CRAZY…….but it is my belief that those contrived stimuli are mostly ineffectual once you understand them.

So when you ask, how do you know what it is that brings dis-ease and dis-chord to one’s table ADD, OCD or what have you…I try and share this….. read, learn, talk, educate oneself……not only about your history your nuturing and chemistry but about your environment micro and macro…….find out how you relate to all those things, understand what you truly believe, where you got your information and why. I try and stay cognisant of all those things, all the time and I have brought my children up to be the same. Question question question…..why , what do I believe….. what is my relationship to this information….if any at all. I’m not pre-occupied I’m just aware, it actually is stimulating and I enjoy it…….and it’s freeing.

All of this fits nicely hand in glove will self awareness…..they are a little inseparable………in the end…..awareness allowed me to step off and step aside………and let that crazy shit just go by. It is like subliminal advertising…..it only works when the target is unaware!!!!

Or sumthin’ like that…….
