Two pieces for peace

20201121_Two pieces for peace_painting_mathias sager_psychology_art_EN

Hoping, speaking out for, and acting for social justice and change is not coming from negativity. Instead, it is the expression of positive thinking that things can be done better and a healthier and more peaceful world is possible. M. Sager It is easy to love people when they smell [look] good, but sometimes they slip into the manure of life and smell [look] awful. You must love them just … Continue reading

Fluffed up vs. ‘reality before appearances’

20201111_FLUFFED UP_acrylic on woodpanel 50 x 100 cm_mathias sager art

Fluffed up (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on woodpanel, 50 x 100 cm As we deserve to be not judged by our past, we should not judge others according to the labels they are given. The socio-economic status of people doesn’t tell us much about their human qualities. Try to see people’s soul regardless of social personality appearances. Don’t waste your thoughts on interpreting equipment, façade styles, and fashions. They are … Continue reading

F… airytale. (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on wood panel, 40 x 60 cm Many people believe that they would not be complete without a legally bounded better half, that everybody needs somebody to romantically relate to and be taken care of, that one has to be someone’s personified treasure, and that an embodied relationship is the source of all strength. These prince-and-princess fairytales are sweet to promote the continuance of … Continue reading

Rueda dance of life

Rueda dance of life (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm Do become an attentive and agile dancer who controls the body, cooperates with the mind, and coordinates the congeniality of the souls to dance the socio-temporal dance of life. 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 … Continue reading

Trinity Warrior II, acrylic on wood panel, 80 x 80 cm ‘Vor Kunst’ “Das Symbolische ist die Vorkunst; und das Symbolische hat dahin fortzugehen, daß das geistige frei werde und sich eine Gestalt gebe, daß sein Dasein Nicht auch ein anderes vorstellt, sondern nur das Geistige vorstellt.

Can you see the wheel of joy (࿋) in my face?

20201107-Trinity-warrior-IV_acrylic-on-wood_60x60_mathias-sager-painting

Trinity Warrior IV (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on wood panel, 60 x 60 cm. A face also seems to me to be in three parts (instead of just left/right, up/down) -> ࿋ wheel of joy. It’s a bit more difficult to recognize, but all the more dynamic/harmonious (as with everything :-)).

We can photograph the outer world, but our inward view has to be painted.

20201106_SOUL_acrylic-on-canvas-150-x-120-cm_mathias-sager

Comprehensive awareness is like the capturing of light, which is our soul’s essential yearning. Life wants to reveal itself to us. Even if we close our eyes, some light is shining through the lids. The clouds are not a part of the sky. It’s never completely dark; there is always radiating vividness. To see clearly, wait until the clouds are gone. They are just the changing and passing stories others … Continue reading

ME, WE, ALL OF THEM TOGETHER

Today’s state of consciousness and social intelligence still seems to rest on the limitation of “me and we.” Aren’t we capable of adding (especially as concerning the future) “all of them” to our social scope? Humans are social beings equipped with the mental capacity of social intelligence whose ultimate enabler is awareness. What is the scope of most (scientific and popular) definitions of Social Intelligence? Does being socially intelligent deploy … Continue reading

(Non-violent) ‘fighting’ for Awareness Intelligence that comprises the three treasures of Taoism

202011102_trinity-warrior-III_acrylic-on-canvas-100-x-100-cm_mathias-sager-1

Trinity Warrior III. Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm. (Non-violent) ‘fighting’ for Awareness Intelligence that comprises the three treasures of Taoism: MODERATION leads to generosity (All are born the same as humans. There is no superiority of anyone, just different cultures, and societal norms. -> I’m thinking about my INTRAPERSONAL PAST. Who am I really regardless of my upbringing?) COMPASSION leads to courage (Unconditional love removes fear from pressure, … Continue reading

Trinity warriors: A loving mother and father fight for a child’s right for both parents

As with predominant dualistic thinking, (parent-children) relationships are also wrongly understood as between two parties. It seems to be the insecure ego’s desire to own a person. A trinity warrior, on the other hand, doesn’t have to control through exclusive possession. Instead, he or she recognizes an individual’s right to be complete by one’s own and to maintain other relationships with both parents too. Take the mother, who can separate … Continue reading

TRISKELION / TRIQUETRA, Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm

20201017_triskelion-triquetra_acrylic-on-canvas-100-x-100-cm_mathias-sager-1

The current state of common thinking tries to create dualistic balances (win-lose situations), while it would be better to see triadic harmonies instead (collaborative situations). Are you ready for the next step in thinking: Like from 2D to 3D? As you change how you look at the world, the world you look at will change. – either-or (ADD and) – left-right (ADD middle) – outside-inside (ADD between) – life-death (ADD … Continue reading

Without trialistic (threefold) thinking, we’re screwed

The world often appears to be paradoxical. Paradoxes only exist in dualistic thinking though. That’s how we’ve been trained to see things. In trialistic thinking, in contrast, a paradox would be just indicating an inner state of incomplete awareness. Like one can experience in climbing, only two points of contact expose to the danger of being left hanging by one hand or foot, and likely falling. To find the right … Continue reading

THE TRIADIC PERSPECTIVE, the rule of three, or the threefold nature of life

20201003_triadic-perspective_acrylic-on-canvas-50-x-70-cm_mathias-sager-3

            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. During all my research over the years, I’ve found that there is indeed universal power in the ‘rule of three.’ The source energy that is light, reflects in the three colors red, green, and blue from which all other colors … Continue reading

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?

Healing beyond relief

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.
