A false positive is something that looks positive at first glance, but late turns out to be not positive at all.
For example, you might know someone who’s always talking about Love & Light, or who is always speaking positively, even when things are going very badly. Or maybe you know someone who’s always using positive affirmations, or using positivity as a method of manifesting.
It’s not that positivity is bad.
It’s just that being real is better.
When we allow our feelings to be what they are, even when we’d really prefer to not look at that yucky, swirling mess of chaos and confusion... Well, allowing of discomfort as a real response, is much better than showing up as false positive.
Our real feelings, that feels that are hidden under false positives, will always lead us in the right direction.
Learning to show up to what's real is a hard task; it's hard to look at our true feelings, because they often show us a view that we’d rather not see. For example: maybe we're positive about our work in public, but underneath it we’re angry at how little we're being paid. Maybe we're positive about our relationship in public, but our stomach hurts whenever we're with our partner. Maybe we're positive about a health condition, but underneath we're really afraid.
We all have our stuff, underneath it all.
If you can resist the urge to be positive, and instead walk the hero's path of looking at what is, you will begin to uncover what is really going on. In this way, you can do your inner work more quickly and more completely.
