Think thrice

mathias sager awareness intelligence chapter 34

We should not only think twice; we need to think thrice. To think about ‘me and others’ is not enough. To only reflect on the ‘now and then’ is sufficient neither. Thinking in couples instead of triples creates instabilities and disables wholesomeness. For illustration, only seeing and having faith, without following through is wasteful meaninglessness. Belief and action alone without seeing clearly what to believe and act upon, are naïve and irresponsible. To see and act upon without faith discourages trust. Therefore,

Awareness Intelligence as the threefold awareness about awareness requires to think thrice.

Thinking three times involves the three Awareness Intelligence pointers in a silent trialogue of wisdom. Instead of a bipolar mind that typically tends to either over- or underthink, a harmonious mind, in contrast, avoids the loud arguing or pausing of a two-sided dialogue and instead synthesizes the whole socio-temporal awareness structure within which right, compassionate thought can arise. The thinking gets liberated thanks to extended awareness, and therefore, allows being also sensitive to intuitive and creatively non-analytical thought. In a second step, thoughts can be selected and integrated according to their awareness-intelligent value. In addition to the reception of intuitive and imaginary input from consciousness, Awareness Intelligence can self-generate thought, the thought that creates the knowing of holiness, wholeness, and wholesomeness. The mastery of the intentional use of such a mighty awareness-structure of the mind lines up thought logically from along the intra-past, through the inter-present, to the extra-future. Thus, life becomes less complicated, simpler, and correspondingly causes less related suffering.

If you want to increase reliability in decision-making, you need three points of fixation respectively three sources for a three-way match. If for a point to be confirmed, you can’t find two other reference points, verification is weak.

Think about a tripod and how its three legs need to interact simultaneously to provide a stable stand. Only by such a well-established awareness, bigger logical arcs of higher importance and sharper thought can be captured.

Whether you want to achieve better thought-through results or to relax mental tension, think thrice the same way as you take three deep breaths as a physical exercise.

Don’t judge too early, only cross the street of thought after having applied a ‘watch-listen-walk’ attitude in your decision-making.  For your own and all others safety, watch the intra-past, listen to the inter-present, and walk the extra-future.

    I’ve met so many people over the years that talk about wanting change. They think and speak, but don’t act. We have a society (at least in the U.S.) of people who either ignore what’s going on around them (fake bliss) or armchair activists who want change but do nothing about it.

    I feel sadness when I realize that so much good could have come from millions of people joining the Occupy Wall Street movement part-time back in 2011. That large a movement would have had an amazing impact on society.

      I agree. But action always follows thought. So, the right action (and action at all) comes from the right thinking.
      People don’t think to the end. Or they think in dualistic opportunistic either-or choices instead of harmonious value-based beyond-choice decisions. Thought needs to be connected to the self, society, AND humanity. Mostly the latter is missing, why people act with limited scope and follow the society (the herd!).
      Despite the seemingly big crowd in certain movements, finally, the economic system and punishment for not complying with the herd always outnumber and outpower, why people return frightened to the safety of the mass. The question remains how to build a big enough ‘movement’ to create a change of the collective mind. We need to write some additional articles and comments here:-). And new ideas need to influence general education!
      Thanks for our contribution!!
