Individual revolution, human evolution (overcoming psychic blindness)

Chapter 11 – Individual revolution, human evolution

Today, humans do not evolve through physical challenges anymore, but rather through mental adaptiveness.

Carelessness and conflicts due to increased stress and anxiety levels cause the pharmaceutical markets to surge. Instead of pills, however, we need a different quality of the mind that is not resulting in mental dysfunction, suffering, and aggression. Awareness Intelligence can serve as a natural human enabler whose potential is revolutionary on the individual and evolutionary on the human level. I believe in rationality and our ability to transform our way of thinking, although there is seemingly not a good enough market for such a mindset yet. However, as Jacque Fresco, the American futurist said, “we must put our mind on this as we do put a man on the moon.” What an exciting opportunity for us to strive for accessing life force that makes the whole of the universe. Metacognitive strategies, the thinking about the thinking, are vital for any endeavor of human learning and behavior.

Awareness Intelligence is the mastery of meta-conscious strategies that empower for living a holy, wholly and wholesome human life.

The ‘body image concern’ condition lets people suffer from concerns about their body because they are dramatizing considered physical flaws due to an over-emphasis on specific local visual processing. If they had a better functioning global visual processing of the whole body, a more proportionate picture of the entire physical self would be perceived. The same phenomenon can be detected not only for the physical but also for the mental perception of oneself. A distorted perception due to impaired awareness of the global nature of life might cause one to limit the mental self-image adversely. And indeed, far too many are the people who think without objective reason that they would be not intelligent, not talented, not creative, not attractive, and not worthy spiritual beings. Such preoccupations are negatively affecting self-esteem, well-being, and vitality. Eating disorders and plastic surgery, for example, become the life-threatening and self-mutilating means to get rid of the image concerns.

It is important to acknowledge the existence of the disabling psychic blindness that the shortage of whole-person awareness represents and to develop Awareness Intelligence to put things back into a wholesome overall context.

Rather than technological solutions in the first place, it is the apprehension of the human mind that bears the secret to breakthrough progress for the development of human beings and their well-being. As the saying goes “the eyes are useless when the mind is blind.” There is certainly no shortage of optical aids considering the interesting possibilities coming from technologies such as telescopes, microscopes, magnifiers, and zoom lenses. Of course, technological progress can be enormously useful for the enhancement of our limited five senses, the recovery of the physical health of some, and it can bring a good portion of excitement and thrill. But technologies are not speaking to the mind and soul directly. Any external stimulation first always goes through a layer of receptiveness and awareness that is more or less filtering and transforming signals into emotions and thoughts. It’s this, and only this, layer of the aware mind that determines how we experience the world. These mental capacities though are neglected as being untouchable, and so ‘mind tools’ remain relatively vague. Many people have heard – not as many who are using an iPhone though – that mindfulness, for example, is something good and vital for everyday and professional thriving. But it’s admittedly a struggle to understand what exactly the mind should be full of. Although we can observe and think about life, psychic blindness seems to be a common issue. Compared to the massive investments put into the marketing of consumer goods, investments into understanding and developing the human mind to increase well-being and health, stay comparatively modest.

It would not only make sense, but it is our responsibility to promote the empowerment of the human mind, to teach how to use the most powerful tool there is, human awareness, as a matter of priority in all societies.

  • I admire your work. Are you aware of the work being done at The Heart Math Institute? Apparently the heart has its own intelligence and I think this understanding may be the key to getting out of the mind and tapping into the intelligence of the heart in order to overcome some of this psychic blindness.

    I believe that there are technologies within us that can be used to interrupt neurotic, habitual thought patterns that keep us locked in that cycle of remaining psychically blind. According to The Kybalion (Hermetic Principles), the universe is mental… so you are absolutely on to something here…. but the mind always wants to know. The heart tells a story that never ends.

    • mathias sager says:

      Hi!
      Like the Kybalion claims to appear in one’s life when the time is ripe, you just showed up at the right time and gave me a couple of significant inputs as I’m looking into Hermeticism. Thank you!
      I also had a look at the scientific foundation of the Heart Math Institute. Compelling, but not complete? Because I’m not sure whether to influencing one’s mental world through physiology as a primary strategy is sufficient. Of course, the heart, the brain, and the soul influence each other, and emotions (as often ‘irrationally’ triggered by the heart) shouldn’t be ignored. But emotions only make sense in the context of one’s awareness. It is our worldview (awareness) that determines a good part of how we feel about things and situations.
      So, as you say, the heart and other tools (hardware) can be useful to unlock and trigger, but the processing (software), the thinking should be emphasized and made aware. That’s how we can create our world, from the mental world to the physical realm.
      In any case, I’m thankful that you made me think about the heart a bit more again; it’s an essential, integral aspect indeed.
      All the best and take care

  • Mr. Sager,
    I wanted to personally thank you for following my blog.
    At first glance it looks like a bunch of weird esoteric ramblings. I might be insane, I don’t deny that.
    My highest personal mantra or principle by which I strive to live my life is this:
    Every single person that comes into our lives, no matter how significant or insignificant their role may be, has something that we need that will assist us in our own personal evolution, in the growth of our individual ‘souls’.
    Often times I fail to live up to my own principle in that I forsake those who come into my life, those who stumble onto the very same path which I tread. It saddens me that I do more harm than good in so many peoples lives. I have a karmic debt that is insurmountable.
    Still, it is my earnest desire that I can somehow resolve this debt while in this incarnation because I dread to imagine what horrors await me in the life to come.
    Thank you for coming into my life which is also my death. I look forward to what we may learn from one another.
    Sincerely,
    C. M. Marquez

      Dear Chris
      Thank you very much for your message. It’s good to know/see how everything respectively all individual souls belong together, indeed. If you do not harm yourself, you won’t harm others. Dept and guilt are inventions of the human form and are not part of the eternal soul that we are already at any time. If you can die to the identity of separated existence and be one with the whole, which is possible right now without reincarnation, life becomes joy. This I wish you, and I’m happy too to stay in contact.
      All the best
      Mathias

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s all a journey, isn’t it?

    • mathias sager says:

      Thanks for connecting too. Indeed. However, life is not a “material” project; I don’t believe it is a journey from A to B, but rather a cyclically manifesting and in parallel accessible consciousness:-). In any case, all the best in your endeavors:-)
