The subconscious knows things we don’t know consciously. So our lives are always a bit of a mess, even the lives of the so-called awakened (and I no longer buy into that term).
You can do riffs on how enlightened you are all day, but my subconscious will be tipping me off in some strange way.
Vernon Howard said, “You are being conned in weirder ways than you think. Never blame the con man.”
It is not negative to see negativity! It may be the only chance you have to escape a trap set right in front of you.

It is selling your own unworthiness and it makes a damned good profit off of the enterprise.
“Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” It is not negative to see clearly. It works far more effectively than mental affirmations ever can.
