Ironic Fundamentalism: The hilarious truth about existence

Posted on
What IF… The nature of the universe is paradoxical? Ironic Fundamentalism is an upbeat approach to life which embraces a universal paradoxical awareness. This way we harness a sense of ‘ironic humour’ about ourselves, the universe and everything – one that leads us to answer the big questions – that lie unconsciously beneath our anxieties.
 
With IF, we can be free of Anxiety in every day life – and also, continue to transcend our suffering toward Enlightenment.
 
IF holds a few key IFFY principles that help us challenge our thinking:
 

“Reality is the bitch-slap of belief.” What we think about things is generally bollocks. All we know is that we don’t really ‘know’ anything. We are always looking through a lens, subject to bias, perspectively challenged.

“Controversy is the drive behind social evolution.” It is our conscious duty to actively explore those daunting ideas which are controversial and with a non-judgement mindset, we seek to evaluate the causes of those controversies – that is, the unbiased honest acceptance of a world that isn’t made up of “right and wrong” but contrasting perspectives and biases.

“Anxiety: it’s nothing to worry about.” Literally we worry about everything that is past or potential future calamities and fail to realise that we only ever exist in the ‘now’. We are distracted by worries about everything and fail to see that everything is actually no-thing.

This project is to support the sharing of IFFY ideas and advice.
