    The Principles Preventatism

    Preventatism has been around for a long time.

    Since the early1950s it has been developed into the effective stress defence mechanism it is today.

    Someone called today, (5th March 2019), and said something sensational...that is.... sensational to us  !!


    They said...."I can't get it...(Preventatism) is too easy to understand.."

    You can be sure we did not quite follow what they meant by this, and so we engaged in further discussion to find the origins of the thought.

    You will understand that as Preventatists we appreciate the absolute strength of the philosophy, as it defends us from all those SRDs  that are plaguing the human species.

    We are utterly confident in the ability of the Preventatism philosophy to provide individual cover to we who use it continuously.

    So we started to look at this statement..."(Preventatism) is too easy to understand.." and discuss it towards finding the underlying problem, iwhatever it is..........

    We arrived at a conclusion.  

    The basic problem seems to be this...:

    The concepts in Preventatism are very simple, whilst not perhaps being very obvious.  When a person looks at the parts of the philosophy, if those parts are regarded individually, like well-known sayings, they appear to be obvious.

    In today's massive, communicative world, We seem to have become used to looking at "smart"  proverbial maxims, or tips, as individual items.

    Let us give some examples of the kind of thing we mean:

    1. "No idea works unless you do the work" ;(Sharma) .

    2. "He who hesitates is lost"  (Shakespeare)

    3. "If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse."  (Anonymous)

    4. "You can only lose what you cling to". (Buddha)

    5. "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."   (Also Buddha)

    6.  "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."  (Proverb)

    7. "Brave new world"   (Shakespeare)

    8. "What's done is done"  (Shakespeare)

    9.  "It is the mind that wins or loses"(Nepalese Proverb)

    10. "A little learning is a dangerous thing, but we must take that risk because a little is as much as our biggest heads can hold."  (Shaw)

     Each of these proverbs or maxims have an individual truth, and are apt, but are easily set aside in the mind, when another one comes along.

    The Principles or maxims in Preventatism are as simple, and as easy to accept, but they need to be strung together, and used as a whole in  order to do the work they are intended to do, each day and all day.

    To use an analogy, our Principles are woven into the fabric from which is made the imaginary stress-proof clothing we wear  !

    So if a reader looks at each segment of the Principles and regards them individually, the point of the philosophy is overlooked.

    Preventatism is not "clever" or "idealistic". It has been devloped to be simple, but to be used as a composite idea.

    Therefore, it needs to be read with care and continuance to be effectively uplifted into the mind. As has been mentioned already, Preventatism is not a religion or religious; it is non-spiritual and non-medical.

    You need to read the ideas, and think  carefully about them, seeing if and how they might fit into your life, to come to the conclusion that the Preventatist philosophies can work for you or not. If  you find that they are something you can use to ward off stress, then your life will become healthier.

    If you find you cannot accept them, then you can continue to seek for a philosophy which works for you.

    This thinking also relates to the reason why successful acceptance of the ideas, and consequent good health, runs parallel to presentations at group workshops, in which ideas can be instantly questioned and discussed, so that the philosophy is welded into one idea in the minds of the recipients.
