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.
“Many of us have been convinced that we carry the darkness within us, in our selfish genes. “It is simply human nature,” we’re told, “to rape and kill and enslave—and anyone who thinks otherwise is a foolish romantic.” This messaging not only offends our decency and dignity, it insults our intelligence. The depiction of human … Continue reading CIVILIZED TO DEATH
The Inner EyeAcrylic on canvas, 100 x 180 cm“All the unnecessary conflicts and aggression are the awareness-blind persons’ desperate canes searching for a way out of disorientation and anticipating hurting clashes.

IMAGINATION Can you imagine? Your agency, meaning in life, creativity, and satisfaction are depending on it “Nothing happens in the real world unless it happens first in the images in our heads” (Gloria E. Anzaldúa) “Through the inner channels of the imagination, we can see through the eyes of others, travel back to the past, … Continue reading Imagination

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.
In 2016, Jim Haber published the ground-breaking DNA research ‘The rule of three’ revealing that nature, respectively DNA when it repairs itself, is likely working in a tripartite structure.

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?
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.
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.

However, for chronic smokers, these effects may diminish over time and smoking serves the satisfaction of the addiction only. Simply … Continue reading Dopamine addiction: Example of smoking
“Sternberg recognized that some abilities (like creativity and practical skills) are not recognised by traditional educational methods; students with these skills and abilities could be disadvantaged by traditional teaching methods; on the other hand, in self-governed learning styles like online/individual learning, these abilities could be advantageous (Nielsen, & Kreiner, 2017). Sternberg’s theory and his inventory … Continue reading Triarchic Theory of Intelligence
The time-compressed relatedness of urgency to near-future inter-personal expectations implies that later in time the importance of the matter will fade only as a function of time. Awareness-intelligent solutions, on the other hand, are about importance and are never in a hurry.
When the pursuit of personal happiness is replaced by a genuine quest for meaning, when relationships are kept free from possessive judgments and expectations, and when peace is made with all humanity at all times, one is rewarded with true happiness, freedom, and peace of mind. This is the threefold benefits from the three tenets of Awareness Intelligence.
Awareness Intelligence can be developed by any healthy individual. Everybody has the mental ability to extend linear time and social relations towards the inclusiveness of the eternity and entirety of humankind. All it takes is to pay attention and motivate oneself by knowing about the tremendous benefits of Awareness Intelligence for one’s private and professional life.
As a virtue, Awareness Intelligence is a reward in itself, and life is proving us constantly that peace is possible to the extent human awareness is embracing it. Awarian life is possible thanks to the systematic and continuous practice of Awareness Intelligence, the chief liberating and humanitarian enabler of a new age.
