Do we have a dark side that we can’t help it? The self-responsible answer is no. It’s a character choice that needs to be consistent over time. The process between the conscious and the unconscious goes as follows: Every action and thought is motivated by the unconscious at some level. Some motives are temporarily not … Continue reading The Subconscious: What we plant, we harvest
OVER-TREATED Over-educated and over-treated We are treated and coached all the time. That is good for the gross national product; but is it also for us? Doesn’t the ever-increasing over-pedagogy of the young and over-treatment of the elderly mean that our upbringing and education do not make us self-effective individuals? Torn by our loved ones … Continue reading Overtreated
A vacation with my daughter Natalie. Is it a lake or island? It can look the same, but not at the same time. Green, greensand, ochre, umber, blue, turquoise. Land and water, summer and winter.

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.

Mindfulness is a buzzword used all over. But still, few seem to understand what exactly the mind should be full of.

Doctor’s don’t heal you, healing occurs within yourself. If life can create new bodies and souls, why shouldn’t it be able to heal the same? You will find everything you need in life if you serve it by helping all humanity that comes and goes. The assertive expression of your legitimate desires and quitting temporal states, spaces, and dependencies that are awareness-unintelligent is unavoidable to remove what is inhibiting the wholesome life in humantime that is available to you too.
It can be argued that there are three basic human needs. First is safety, for which you need to re-connect to your intra-past, your safe source that is always yours. Second, if your soul’s need to meet other souls in the inter-presence is met, deep satisfaction ensues. And third, the need for connection can be met through connecting to all humankind in the extra-future.
