Dream 001 (#equality #future# #heart #kindness #love)

I dream that people (inclusive so called homo economicus) consistently value kindness over smartness. It is too easy and below human greatness that is in all of us to just be smart. I dream that the strength of choosing the hearty action is with all of us at every time. One more selfless daily effort from everyone results in billions of contagious love … Continue reading Dream 001 (#equality #future# #heart #kindness #love)

The Psychology of Language

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE Having learned English, French, and Japanese while living and working in different cultures, and as a global citizen, psychologist, and artist, languages (words, images, and the heart) are vital for me every day. Research into the psychology of language, or psycholinguistics, has helped better understand the mental aspects of language and … Continue reading The Psychology of Language

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. This … Continue reading A MIND not too narrowly set: A global mindset

The Knotgoblin

The KNOTGOBLIN (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 50 x 50 cm) Consistent thinking is the knotgoblin that is strangling our Self. That’s how I’d interpret the deeper meaning of the saying ‘Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds’ by Ralph Waldo Emerson. First, not changing one’s mind testifies the absence of learning, the addiction … Continue reading The Knotgoblin

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

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. The benefits of letting you get offended.

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.

Physical spacelessness and spatial mentalness

The collective human delusion assumes ‘spacetime’ instead of ‘humantime’ as the fabric of the universe. I always arrive again at the conclusion that the dimensions relevant to humanity are those of how we relate to our species respectively life and how we refer to time. Therefore, our awareness should comprise the combination of social and temporal dimensions rather than the combination of space and time.

Broadening the social scope

Today, geographical barriers across the globe dissolve, yet our thinking remains lacking global reach. Indeed, humanity so far did not keep mentally up with the speed of globalization. It has not developed a responding mindset that embraces an equally global world view from a humanistic perspective. This leads to sympathy without empathy, which is out of sync with reality and has severe implications.

It may be your today’s courageous example that inspires somebody else even years later to do the right thing as well. 2.To be a leader means to be a continuous learner, and learners are readers. … Continue reading Leaders are not born, they are made

Hope, Living with Uncertainties, and Tolerance for Ambiguity

Summary. In the light of uncertain future threatening outcomes, present ambiguous information often is interpreted more negatively than it would be the case in a safe context. Black-and-white thinking is hindering positive deciphering of ambiguous information. People educated in open-mindedness and who have learned to tolerate ambiguity can better persevere in their tolerance even in … Continue reading Hope, Living with Uncertainties, and Tolerance for Ambiguity
