A MIND not too narrowly set: A global mindset

“Most conflicts are based on black and white thinking, the fear of devaluation, and the threat to one’s own (cultural) identity. There is one level, though, the global mindset, on which black is also white.” This text was published in the ‘Skilled Helper Collaborative’ (Thanks @Patty): https://pattywolters.com/blog/2021/05/28/mindset-skilled-helpers-collaborative/ I often hear that mindset is everything.

Painting COURAGEOUS JUMP OF KINDNESS (M. Sager, 2020, acrylic on canvas board, 40 x 50 cm)

COURAGEOUS JUMP OF KINDNESS (M. Sager, 2020, acrylic on canvas board, 40 x 50 cm)

It’s easy to be smart, but difficult to be kind. Indeed, kindness requires courage and strength. Awareness-intelligent thought and courageous efforts to act in kindness reward with feelings of egoless affection, as everybody knows who has ever, for example, only helped a lost tourist despite low likelihood to ever meet again and get reciprocity. By caring for somebody’s soul, we care for the collective of all souls, we affect universal consciousness. Through timeless kindness, which heals, liberates, and amplifies the consciousness of all humanity and time, therefore, opens an interpersonal present into parallel time. The ineffable bliss of giving up one’s fictitious personality comes from detaching from the experience of momentary being and serving life itself that comes in the form of another human soul in need. True kindness is the ticket to detach from time and to access eternity. It is eternity where we all meet at the same time. The ability to surpass the fear of losing oneself in service to others offers a door to Awareness Intelligence.

(Excerpt from Awareness Intelligence, M. Sager, 2019)

TOWARDS A BROADER AWARENESS (Introduction to a tool of self-reflection)

Missing global awareness Looking at people’s stress and anguish, the conflict between societies and how the environment gets maltreated, it seems that the human ability of mentally embracing, being aware of a global collective as a species did not keep pace with the globalization of the world. Is there a lack of a kind of … Continue reading TOWARDS A BROADER AWARENESS (Introduction to a tool of self-reflection)

The 3 types of Psychic Blindness, which prevent Awareness Intelligence

Mindfulness is a buzzword used all over. But still, few seem to understand what exactly the mind should be full of. Most people do not systematically think about their thinking; they do not reflect on their scope of awareness. Psychic blindness appears to be a common issue and, therefore, hinders natural fitness, unconditional kindness, and … Continue reading The 3 types of Psychic Blindness, which prevent Awareness Intelligence

Identities: Obstacles to change

[This article was also published together with other authors at the ‘Skilled Helpers Collaborative’: tinyurl.com/dsja4q4h] Transitions can be defined as “change from one form to another.” In physical life, change is inevitable. So, we (and all matter) constantly change. Our body that we occupied only a few years ago does not contain the same atoms … Continue reading Identities: Obstacles to change

LET YOURSELF OFFEND. The benefits of letting you get offended.

You get an understanding and compassionate ear here, but the most significant benefit lies in permitting me to offend you. First of all, if I didn’t dare to offend, I couldn’t be honest. Being offended offers a real-world check outside of one’s comfort zone. Second, if I solely entertained you, I’d waste your time distracting … Continue reading LET YOURSELF OFFEND.

Establish integrity and integrational abilities

To become a real leader is founded on mastering self-leadership and on being at peace with oneself and the world. For being able to serve as a role model, one has to be ready to give up his or her title and position. Too dissonant can a professional identity become with the aware self. How could one ever enjoy people who admire rather their title-based authority and social status rather than knowing about their creativity, vulnerability, and loving character in the first place?

The ability to respond

Recognize how important you are. Every dream for a better world, every creative act, and even a seemingly naive idea can inspire and provide the courage to break out of the cage of limited knowing. It’s about what you can do in your mind. It’s not compliance, but bold responsibility that nurtures your, others, and all humankind’s Awareness Intelligence. What else could be more worth to realize?! I, for my part, rather want to have tried.

Surviving and thriving through change

The most profound, impactful and sustainable way to change the thinking is to change the layer from where thought arises: awareness. Every movement is your decision, and harmony comes from being intelligently aware of your, your partners’, and the music’s desire to unfold. When the spirit of the music intuits your individual and collaborative intention to the imagination that the music is just perfectly reflecting the vibes of melted body and soul, Awareness Intelligence has come to play.
