lmtlssPronoia

Psychology

Pronoia is a neologism that is defined as the opposite state of mind to paranoia: having the sense that there is a conspiracy that exists to help the person. It is also used to describe a philosophy that the world is set up to secretly benefit people.Wikipedia
And if we break it down, pro-, of course, means supporting; favoring. And -noia is defined as thought; (condition of the) mind or will.
I’ve been getting plenty of those tingly pronoia feelings these last few months, but I’ve always said the universe is working in your favor, girl! Yessssss!  And I’ll probably just continue to say that because pronoia sounds like I need to work on my paranoia pronunciation. Interesting nonetheless.

Is the universe working in your favor?

  2. Is the Universe working in your favor?
    That is a deep question and I’m not referring to distance. I think that at present the Universe is mostly ambivalent. For IF the Universe is to be sensed in some spiritual manner, well, maybe god/Universe has washed the divine hands of the human experience and is busy somewhere else. How could a “caring” god/Universe allow so much suffering on this here Planet Earth?
    I’m just saying…

    1. Deep answer, Donzo. And I’m not referring to distance either.

      If you look at it on a broad scale, yes, we are doubtlessly fucked. So much irreversible damage has been done that the future looks mighty bleak, but some days are better than others.. and those days push me to make the best of what it is.

  3. Fascinating new word for me. Thanks. Now need to find a word to describe me at the moment: A confused paranoid who is experiencing pronoia. Is the conspiracy is slipping up, taking their eye off the ball? Maybe part of their plan / its plan is to give a break now and then.

  4. I learn something new every day! Love it! The Universe is always working with me, even when it doesn’t seem like it at times. I don’t believe the Universe makes mistakes.
