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?
As a life begins to readjust to a broader perception of life, jobs for the mere purpose of earning a lot of money might make the place for work with meaning at any price. One’s public and private identities begin to converge, and a deep sense of joy of living a life of awareness always reminds of the possibility to reconcile even the most difficult situations with awareness-intelligent spirituality. One might soon find his or her true passion written not only on a private note but soon also on the publicly shown service card. Social and private identifications merge, and so might roles in different situations.
Not focusing on one specific Awareness Intelligence mode only but integrating the intra-past with the inter-present and the extra-future helps to not go astray in any extreme and unhealthy direction but to reap all the benefits of living a life aware of the threefold nature of life.
Just because you are, in case, diligently and loyally working for somebody else’s dream doesn’t mean that you are right-focused fulfilling your own human potential.
First and most it is your task to be yourself.
Intend what is your source’s intuition and become who you imagine being remembered for.
How do you contribute to the collective human consciousness?
Does it add life-supporting meaning, unconditional love, and timeless kindness?
Awareness Intelligence is a specific constellation of ‘awareness about awareness’ and represents the decoding of the socio-temporal structure of the human psyche. The tripartite lawfulness of the socio-temporal matrix of Awareness Intelligence provides for a mental reference system that empowers for spiritual exploration and practical application of meaning, enthusiasm and well-being, and bigger positive impacts for all.
Psychological issues, and by that ultimately any human-related problems, come either from neurosis or character weaknesses. Both are a matter of lack of responsibility and typically lead to symptoms of individual and collective stress. If a society and its members decide to see the world as threatening, hostile, and transactional instead of being determined by love, and if the path to happiness as the highest goal is considered to be depending on what kind of or how much stuff one can accumulate, it is not surprising that this leads to fear of loss, obsessions, and depression. There lie serious responsibility issues in excusing diminished awareness, which lead to selfish, greedy, and passive behavior. Character flaws tend to be excused at all or as illnesses. It appears that it is cheaper for a society to pay for standard treatments, which bring temporary relief of symptoms rather than to invest in the long-term healing of people as whole-human beings. From a financial and law and order perspective, it is more efficient and effective to fight the most extreme symptoms of exclusion, for example, by paying some public assistance and to exploit only to the point that there remains a broad enough middle class that helps defending the privileges of the upper class than to risk a revolution from below. People need to be kept happy enough in their misery that they are still helping to defend the oppressors’ authority. That’s how it came that everybody’s issue and suffering has become nobody’s focus of awareness.
Several psychological mechanisms are explaining how people are brought to justify existing social systems that do even disadvantage them. Social justification theory is about the promotion of ideologies, which underline the belief in the inferiority of underprivileged groups. So, it is a myth that Western societies are based on equality of opportunity. The economic success of most people also depends on the level of resources allocated to them, for example at the workplace or by parents who could afford better education and the necessary capital for entrepreneurial ventures. However, many people today believe in the story of meritocracy and attribute economic inequality to their own inferiority. Such unaware system justification is further blocking critical thinking and can also manifest in system-reinforcing victim blaming and stereotyping.
The saying “It’s all about the perspective” should not become a justification and excuse for any social exclusion or harm to anybody, regardless of how far away and seemingly unrelated.
It is more sensible to assume a multi-perspective awareness that is all-inclusive rather than defending group interests.
People who are not able to coordinate complex multi-limb movements with their body are called disabled and are not allowed to do certain things like, for example, driving a car as it would be too dangerous for others. But people who are unable to coordinate complex multi-perspective situations in their minds are allowed to run organizations and countries.
In contrast to a leg-focused person who forgets about the arm-movement and therefore is realistically considered a risk for driving a vehicle, a single-minded career of exclusively fighting for one particular group’s interest is likely to be admired for its dedication. Standing up for one group to succeed over others from a humanitarian point of view, however, is like prioritizing eating over drinking. The organism of humankind is doomed to die.
It’s time to assume responsibility for one’s scope of awareness. Humanity needs a shift from physical protection to a right intention. A society guided by Awareness Intelligence does not build on barriers, walls, and defense mechanisms anymore because nobody needs to be protected against Awareness Intelligence that can’t but take care of everybody’s needs. Such is the beautiful nature of responsibility of humantime. What else could be more worth to realize?! I, for my part, rather want to have tried.
Highest qualities of the mind do not know fear from failure as only failure to learn falls short of them.
Everybody can develop Awareness Intelligence. Once tasted, the knowing about one’s self-efficacy irrespective of society’s non-responsiveness or punitiveness, is too good to be given up again. Everybody can get the control over one’s access to life source, to meet other people lovingly in the current moment, and to serve the communal good and next generations to come. Even if you are discouraged and rather hopeless about what you can do about your future, you always can start with impacting others’ today and tomorrow, which, in return, will reveal your future to you as well. Your impact is of the full scope of humankind.
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.
Think, paint, play music, dance, write, and think again. It’s not commercial products that touch people’s heart most profoundly. It’s what you can do in your mind. It’s not compliance, but boldness that nurtures your, others, and all humankind’s Awareness Intelligence. Every feed into the expansion of knowing is fuel for more awareness-intelligent thought and more wholesome behavior. Life might be right, and an awarian land of awareness not too far away to be already part of now.
People’s hunger for energy, which they’ve learned to satisfy mainly from the outside, is causing so much exploitation, abuse, and conflict. But there is another way we can become aware of. In states of ideal Awareness Intelligence, when the circle of perpetual life is made aware, and
When a human’s life origin and destiny become one, then the flux of life energy can flow and circulate as well.
It is this state in which we feel, like a magnet, where we are naturally attracted to and what we better keep away.
When we run out of energy, it is generally not that others are responsible for our energy depletion, albeit it is sometimes better to avoid energy suckers, especially when we are not able to maintaining maximal Awareness Intelligence on our side. Our energy balance has much more to do with how we ourselves let energy leak from the energy field of humantime. Life energy is not scarce.
Whether we feel more or less energetic is depending on how intelligently we use awareness to keep the doors to the all-abundant source of life energy in humantime open.
The spring of life energy is within us. The energy that is accessed awareness-intelligently in one’s intra-past is pure energy coming directly from the source of all power. Sharing it in the inter-present, and offering it to the extra-future is gratefully supporting the flow of life. Gratitude for our abounding supply of divine energy keeps the portal to the intra-past open.
Without gratitude, receiving is just consumption.
Energy that is, instead of being fed back to life, kept for oneself, is an irresponsible waste.
Being part of the energetics of an awareness-intelligent life is joy and fills us with all its spirit and vigor.
Awareness Intelligence is caring; caring for yourself, for your relations, and the common good. Working hard on something we do not sincerely care about is called stress. Genuine care comes from, by, and with love, as it does not expect anything in return. Sayings like “kill them with kindness” are expressions of aggression and have little to do with true kindness. Bad feelings against others are always hurting ourselves most. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. Chasing victories brings defeat. To live and fulfill life’s purpose of supporting all other life, however, is to be kind. Kindness is not something one primarily does, but it is the voice of who one really is. Human kindness is the very ever-present, non-depletable and everlasting characteristic of humankind.
In the sense of Awareness Intelligence, timeless kindness is the extension of linear time and social relations towards the inclusiveness of the entirety and eternity of humankind.
Humankindism that is kindness in accord with humantime does base on the boundless love and courage that claims the extra-future that’s in for all.
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, thanks to acting in line with Awareness Intelligence.
Through timeless kindness, which heals, liberates, and amplifies the consciousness of all humanity and time, therefore, opens the inter-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 points to all three doors of humantime.
Research finds that hostility is a leading cause of attracting illness. Acts of kindness, even if only observed or imagined, increase the serotonin level in the brain’s reward system, which supports states of well-being. That’s how compassion and generosity become a major predictor for good health.
The awareness about the existence and functioning of humantime is vital to understand what mindfulness might mean. There are as many legitimate opinions about what the problems of the world are from a socio-cultural perspective. Awareness Intelligence, on the other hand, is not based on opinion.
It is the capacity to position human life in time and to identify the socio-temporal constellations that are respectful of all life at any time.
It cannot be iterated more how important it is to stretch and bend time into the circular and parallel nature that let us see that caring for others’ future is supporting the same life that gave birth to our own anatomical existence.
There is nothing anybody can ever take away from us, which will not be taken away by life itself very soon anyway.
So, don’t destroy your life through being fearful of loss and becoming hostile in the process of trying to protect it in vain. Show life that you know it better. Enjoy the power of timeless kindness that is always available to you as the most critical source of sanity and health.
Evan Esar, a 20th-century American humorist and author, wrote, “Character is what you have left when you’ve lost everything you can lose.” You can find your source of kindness wherever you are in life. It is the independent and universally valid currency available even when you’ve lost your wealth, social status, or business and private network.
Kindness is the inexhaustible human energy from within. Accessed through Awareness Intelligence, it is irresistible and rewarding in itself in that it makes us and others feeling good about us and others.
Mahatma Gandhi recommended going every year somewhere where one has never been before. Becoming uprooted in some way or the other indeed may provide for an eye-opening experience on what is left after we’ve lost everything we can lose: Timeless, universal kindness coming from a strong character that nobody and nothing can take away from our control. In that sense, on what side of the world and with whatever we end up, if we always stay genuinely kind to ourselves and others, we can’t feel gotten lost by any means.
Kindness represents a threat to institutionalized materialism. Sometimes kindness is even decried as selfish narcissism because it does not discriminate in favor of the group calling it that way.
If kindness is sourced from the intra-past, displayed in the inter-present, and intended to serve the extra-future, the very opposite is true. That’s timeless Humankindism resulting from Awareness Intelligence.
Love often is mentioned as the most important ingredient in life. Despite being considered the greatest energy in the world, it’s one of the least understood powers too.
Who and what one is not aware of, one cannot love; and which is not loved, one is not properly aware of. A readiness to love is necessary for it being expressed and recognized.
If not made explicitly aware, the emergence of love occasionally appears quite arbitrary. Awareness Intelligence along with the dimensions of the different social relations and time as visualized by the socio-temporal matrix, invites love to arise more likely and both more specifically and more broadly. Real love is unconditional. Real love does not seek to get; its reward is to give, while even this opportunity is unconditionally unexpected. By awareness-intelligently knowing how to arrange relations and time to establish transaction-free relationships, for example through staying in the inter-present without past resentments and future expectations, love becomes a genuine expression of the soul.
There are different types of love, and there is romance. “Romance is tempestuous. Love is calm.” as a Mason Cooley’s aphorism goes. The different levels of love along the Awareness Intelligence modes build on each other harmoniously. Love is the light, the awaring appreciation of source energy, the socio-temporally infinite holy quality of pure life.
Only if you see this source of love in you, you will find it in others too.
Noticing others’ loving energy causes strong emotions of affection and attraction to them. Love is of lower quality if there is a shortage of awareness about everybody’s access to the same source of love. The extension of empathy to all souls, whether they have the Awareness Intelligence to express it too or not, enables compassion. The compassion of the extra-past in that sense is the knowing that at the core of all human expression is the identical love that we’ve discovered in our intra-past and that we joyfully yet without attachment experience in our affectionate inter-present encounters and relationships.
Love the people for who they really are, not for what they allegedly used to be, or for what they supposedly are expected to become, do, or have in the future. Un-condition yourself, learn a new language of love that is free from beliefs based on stories you have adopted. With Awareness Intelligence it’s possible to disrupt the conditioning into misbelieves and to unlearn unhealthy habits. Trace back your story to where it started, all back to the only origin of truth there is. Express your language of respect by letting others become who they really are too.
Find and deliberate your purpose based on such unconditional tenderness. That’s all you are. And you are it all. You do not love. You are love. Unconditionally.
The ability to produce awareness-intelligent situational behavior involves an individual’s appropriation of the understanding about the intra-past, the inter-present, and the extra-future. It is short-sighted and in every case a mistake to not include all humanity around the whole planet, including the next generations to come. It is narrow-mindedness not to include the broadest scope of care possible, which inevitably bounces back on all life at any time, even right in the here and now.
Too fast is the energy and too broad the conscious intelligence of life to not wholly and instantly contain all vibrations that are produced in any place, through anybody, at any time.
Human thought reaches farther than the sight of the eye.
As thoughts and not the eyes create our circumstances, we should rather be aware of circumthoughts.
Thought encircles all there is, ourselves, our relationships, and anybody imaginable anywhere in the world; a social panorama the eye is incapable of grasping.
Also, thought encompasses eternity of time. We may not see immediate consequences of all thinking in the visible world, but our soul’s quality of inspiration and connectedness highly depends on the collective consciousness whose condition is influenced by all thoughts there are; of course, including ours. Thoughts are determining our spirituality, which has no contentual barriers and therefore is the cosmos of all. Think awareness-intelligently to contribute with full positive capacity and energetic attitude to this spiritual realm, which in turn, is the source and fuel of your and all further life as well.
Our circumthoughts, not circumstances, represent the real context of conscious life.
We should not only think twice; we need to think thrice. To think about ‘me and others’ is not enough. To only reflect on the ‘now and then’ is sufficient neither. Thinking in couples instead of triples creates instabilities and disables wholesomeness. For illustration, only seeing and having faith, without following through is wasteful meaninglessness. Belief and action alone without seeing clearly what to believe and act upon, are naïve and irresponsible. To see and act upon without faith discourages trust. Therefore,
Awareness Intelligence as the threefold awareness about awareness requires to think thrice.
Thinking three times involves the three Awareness Intelligence pointers in a silent trialogue of wisdom. Instead of a bipolar mind that typically tends to either over- or underthink, a harmonious mind, in contrast, avoids the loud arguing or pausing of a two-sided dialogue and instead synthesizes the whole socio-temporal awareness structure within which right, compassionate thought can arise. The thinking gets liberated thanks to extended awareness, and therefore, allows being also sensitive to intuitive and creatively non-analytical thought. In a second step, thoughts can be selected and integrated according to their awareness-intelligent value. In addition to the reception of intuitive and imaginary input from consciousness, Awareness Intelligence can self-generate thought, the thought that creates the knowing of holiness, wholeness, and wholesomeness. The mastery of the intentional use of such a mighty awareness-structure of the mind lines up thought logically from along the intra-past, through the inter-present, to the extra-future. Thus, life becomes less complicated, simpler, and correspondingly causes less related suffering.
If you want to increase reliability in decision-making, you need three points of fixation respectively three sources for a three-way match. If for a point to be confirmed, you can’t find two other reference points, verification is weak.
Think about a tripod and how its three legs need to interact simultaneously to provide a stable stand. Only by such a well-established awareness, bigger logical arcs of higher importance and sharper thought can be captured.
Whether you want to achieve better thought-through results or to relax mental tension, think thrice the same way as you take three deep breaths as a physical exercise.
Don’t judge too early, only cross the street of thought after having applied a ‘watch-listen-walk’ attitude in your decision-making. For your own and all others safety, watch the intra-past, listen to the inter-present, and walk the extra-future.
The meaning-making of and about the human psyche can be found in the tripartite structure of the socio-temporal matrix. There are three functional (as opposed to the six dysfunctional) coordinates of the matrix. As we have seen, the three different constellations from combining the dimensions of human relation and time belong together respective build on each other in a logical sequence.
First, the intra-past as the combination of the intra-personal with the past in the sense of the source of intuition, is consciousness enabling minding.
Second, the function of the inter-present, which derives from the inter-personal dimension crossed with present time, leads to awareness as the precondition for self-generated thought.
And third, the intersection of the extra-personal with the future completes Awareness Intelligence in allowing it to be whole-human scope thinking both from a relational and temporal point of view.
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 are created. The science of Yoga names three sources of energy: the left, the right, and the center. The universe’s space consists of three dimensions. The three possible geometries of the universe can be flat, open, or closed, and result from less, equal, or greater than the average density of matter.
The Christian doctrine of the Trinity proclaims that God is one god, but that God eternally exists as three external realities of the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Scientific research outlines a triadic unity of content, approach, and method. Holistic psychological models are biopsychosocial, and
The three basic human needs are safety, connection, and satisfaction, which can be associated in that order to the intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future.
The same is true for the three human self-motivators of authenticity, genuineness, and kindness, as well as for the three factors of subjective well-being that are joy, engagement, and meaning. Also, social sciences operate in threefold structures. For example, the triad of governance philosophy takes into account passion, people, and purpose; and the well-established leadership triad goes along knowledge, trust, and power. All these structures can be re-examined through the mapping to the three tenets of Awareness Intelligence. It seems that the structure of Awareness Intelligence had always been intuitively felt, although the decoding into the socio-temporal matrix had to wait until today.
According to Perennial Philosophy, all of the world’s religious traditions share a single, metaphysical truth from which all spiritual knowledge has derived.
First, it is the continuous nature, which is reflected by the mental stretching in time to achieve awareness along with an infinite temporal scope.
Second, it is a relational scope that comprises all of humanity, including all of its children.
And third, that the purpose of a human life is to realize its divine nature, which matches Awareness Intelligence’s unfolding of fully developed, all-encompassing human cognitive structures.
We can do with Awareness Intelligence what artists do with three dimensions. It is a further breakthrough that comes with an awareness-enhanced mind that the elevation from dualistic thinking to a three-dimensional, tripartite coherent system of the intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future can be systematically enabled. Developing threefold socio-temporal awareness is securing one’s thinking — no more balancing between one and another view that requires crooks for not falling and hurting oneself. 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 compromise between only two opposites risks to end up in an imbalance or a mental respectively spiritual tumble. It would be much better to maintain a three-point mental anchor at all times.
If we could awareness-intelligently shift from balancing tension-laden dichotomies like ‘good and bad,’ and ‘we and them’ towards harmonizing the three perspectives of comprehensive awareness, a new world of cooperation would replace the unfairly capitalist-competitive one we live in most of the time. There is no single Awareness Intelligence mode more important than the others; all three should be securely held on to persistently. The harmony we can create with the three tenets of Awareness Intelligence is allowing the combination of simultaneous thought and, therefore, more sound mental multi-perspectives to produce clearer, fairer, and just rationales.
The challenge of finding maximal solutions and joy instead of satisficing based on uneasy compromises is to avoid dependencies between dualistic relationships.
Bi-partisan relationships are always transactional; neither side can live either with and without the other and, therefore, tends to amplify polarization. The same way a concord in music comes from a group of three notes sounded together pleasingly and satisfactorily, the concerted interplay of the threefold Awareness Intelligence, and consequently the body, mind, and spirit, create a state of being that is joyful and rewarding, harmonious in itself.
The power of a trialistic mind lies in its ability to access our whole consciousness that comprises of the full scope of human relations – ranging from intra-personal, inter-personal, to extra-personal relationships, and time – spanning from the time before the past, over the present, to the time after the future. Real estate is not real; it is just of the longer enduring type of material reconstructions, cultural artefacts that people do manufacture. All material is eroding over time, all forms and bodies are constantly changing, aging, and decomposing. What only is real is life itself that always takes new looks to express its diversity in unity. If we become aware of that fact, we’ve progressed from realistic thinking informed by exclusive and dividing beliefs of possibilities and impossibilities, to the next stage of human evolution: the triangular thinking of the inclusiveness of being attentive to the intra-past, doing the affection coming from the inter-present, and becoming the appreciation resolving from extra-future awareness.
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. With the three valid relational parts of Awareness Intelligence instead of only two, there can’t be ambiguity.
Therefore, to re-establish harmony from a seemingly paradoxical constellation, the socio-temporal matrix can be recalled to either find the missing or new third element or to decompose and rearrange the dichotomic structure into the socio-temporal components of humantime.
When you experience meaninglessness, low motivation, and urges to give up, it is helpful to check the extra-future element and probe its awaring, for example, as follows. Ask yourself:
Am I creating in line with life, the life that continues in all human evolution beyond my family, my party, my nation, my race, etc., or do I identify with such social constructs on which can’t be hold on to in the perishable physical world? If it is the latter, feelings of meaninglessness could stem from such a misidentification.
One might feel that clearly when losing somebody close, when having lost a job, or being rejected from a social group. We have to die to our ego during a lifetime voluntarily, and as we shift from a socio-cultural group identity to a universally valid life-membership, we will have found our purpose of life as well. The ego cannot be overcome through disabling the mind. Selflessness is achieved through thinking awareness-intelligently about the egoless self, through non-transactionality in meeting others, and through a focus on a mutually beneficial future that is in all humanity’s interest.
While people emphasize the need for body-guards in different forms, I think there is a need for spirit-guards even more. Indeed, while bombarded by commercial advertisement to drive consumption, the valuation of the nourishment of the spirit may lack far behind the promotion of physiological and biochemical ways to well-being.
Holistic approaches that encourage the integration of
aspects of the human condition are necessary to do justice to the diverse needs of a whole and wholesome human being.
Awareness Intelligence is addressing the need for inclusion of the body, mind, and soul in all aspects of life if we want to live it wholesomely.
Through mind-stretching into the intra-past, access to the spiritual source is made aware.
The inter-present may well involve many physical aspects in sensing the material world and the relationship with others to experience the present moment as our current incarnation, regardless of thoughts into the past or future.
The third Awareness Intelligence mode, the extra-future, as well as the integration of the tripartite whole of Awareness Intelligence, involves our mind-based intellectual faculties such as logical thinking and imagination to deploy the creative power of the spirit of our soul.
We have more control over the so-called spiritual realm than we think;
We just need to be aware of it and let it be free to benefit us through its revelation of life’s deeper meaning, colorful adventures, and satisfying deeper-impact possibilities from being of service.
The terms ‘practical’ and ‘universal/cosmic’ have been used to contrast the physical and mental worlds. Both are systematically intertwined though. Practical and universal perspectives are not contradictory. Universal thinking becomes practical with the revelation that
It is a common misconception that material and spiritual life are irreconcilable.
Of course, we could cultivate only one part of our garden and let other parts alone. We may forget about the wild and neglected corner and wonder where all the fragrances, insects, roots, and pollen are coming from. Passive sides of the garden are strongly affecting our active gardening and may cause us more troubles and work than if we had actively cultivated all corners of our backyard in the first place.
It is not in the sense of Awareness Intelligence to live either a secular or spiritual life. Such a distinction would be equally dualistic. It is possible to lead a most natural life that combines the bodily five-sensory existence with the awareness-intelligent liberation of the soul beyond the confinement of the body. That’s why Awareness Intelligence is like a triptych in art. Triptych art is made up of three panels that are intended to be displayed together. It is to be hoped that dualistic extremism evolves into harmonious lifestyles.
We need monks who are socially engaging.
We need physically fit intellectuals and intellectual sportspersons.
We need leaders who serve on the ground of honest servant leadership style.
And, we need real, fair competition. If people are allowed to pursue their unique talents, everybody becomes beyond measure and therefore not subject to shallow competition through unrelated or unfair means; extraneous power will not have to serve as compensation for perceived unworthiness, uninterestingness, and unattractiveness anymore.
Chapter 29 – Energy and the illusionary objectification of life
As energy works in waves, life operates in circles and cycles, in softness and roundness too. The earth rotates around the sun, we sleep and wake in rhythmic sequels, like the circle of birth and death. What a contrast we create between the spherical, freely flowing world of life energy and the squared and edged compositions of the frightened human mind seeking physical protection.
Instead of predominantly angular, cubic, boxed, parceled, square, and sharp constructions, round forms around us would remind us more accurately about the real, non-threatening nature of life.
Indeed, all form is coming from round and soft wombs and nests, and eventually everything is returning to the smooth nature of roundness. What is in form and still has edges, gets rounded up and polished by life’s allies, such as wind and water, until the shape is smoothened and eventually dissolved at all. And so does the human body’s contours that become softer as it ages. Women are often extraordinarily displaying so-called soft skills, and female leadership styles tend to emphasize humanitarian principles more than masculine styles stereotypically do. Therefore, the life giving, creative, and protective female nature might play an important role in operationalizing the development of Awareness Intelligence.
Little do we ask ourselves about our most vital relationship, the one with cosmic lifetime. It would be a good idea, as some people do, to write down one’s years left to increase mortality awareness. For example, if life expectancy was eighty years, and one is forty-four years now, it would remind of having only thirty-six years left. To be aware of life’s curvilinear rather than linear course, years would best be contemplated as seasonal compounds, which spiral into eternity as energy waves from both its carried corps and consciousness.
The universe is energy. Light is fast energy. Slow energy becomes heavy and dark. Today’s physicists have evidenced that space is not empty at all. According to Richard Feynman, an American theoretical physicist of the last century, “there is enough energy in a single cubic meter of space to boil all the oceans in the world.” As soon as objectification through slowed down energy vibrations occur, the illusions of time and solidity appear to us. The solid and hard that we appreciate as being most valuable is actually of lowest frequency energy.
High, warm vibration that did not manifest into cold objects, as we perceive them, is energy that is much more of a dynamic, powerful, and healing quality. Why do we surround us with the hard and cold of gold and diamonds instead of letting more sunshine warm our skin?
With our constrained five senses we perceive only relatively slow energy and time consciously. We see our existence as a major event, although it might be not more than an insignificant yet specific vibration of universal energy, as it pertains to our body. If the objectified form of where our soul houses in here on earth is just a short flicker in the context of eternal life, why should we take it so seriously? Consciousness as a constant energetic part of all universal energy will vibrate in and as endlessly different frequencies. Our current manifestation as a human body is just one among unlimited possibilities. For the universe, there are no different forms; form is a dualistic interpretation of the human mind that depends on the threshold of receptiveness of the five senses. Even from that rational perspective, however, the human form may not be the most exciting embodiment that our conscious energy will ever slowdown into.
Sometimes I ponder life as being a swim across a pond; a swim in a crowd of other swimmers that, at times, involves enduring colder streams of water, scary muddy parts, and which comes with physical strains. Then I see that it is just a swim and that my family, colleagues, and others of the current, former, and future swimming classes are observing and encouraging from the water’s edge. As I come closer to the other side of the pond, I see that it will have been a relatively short test. Depending on the diagonal chosen, the swim to the other shore is not the same length for everybody. All the souls of life around the pond, however, help that all involved eventually arrive at the other side. Nobody stays swimming; nobody stays in the water forever. Life takes care of all the swimmers to return safely to the land of real life, regardless of how they did during their swim. However, during the paddle, I realize that I serve as a role model for how to give my best. I’ve understood that I will benefit, thanks to the swimming experience, from various learnings even after I’ll have arrived, for me and for all others who go and will go through that crawl as well. The main benefit lies in learning and inspiring to enjoy every single second awareness-intelligently.
A key insight from the swim across the pond is that both sides of it are the same land of life. The ground from where I birthed into the water, is the same as I return to when I leave the water again. The possibility of returning implies a cyclical notion of life and time, regardless of whether I get another turn for a swim or not. Life is not a project because the end is the same as the start. There are no project-like goals to achieve other than just being your best self and learning as life would never end.
Part of Awareness Intelligence is the ability to mentally stretch to both sides of this imaginary pond of our earthly swim. For our eternal soul that is a breeze, but for our human lifetime awareness and related thinking, it is a gymnastic split we need to practice for.
All-inclusive and endless knowing requires to mentally stretch enough into the time before our physical birth, as well as into the time after our death to bend the timeline into a circle of perpetual and unified life.
We have to sense our soul-relatedness to the immaterial consciousness to detach ourselves from the illusion of time that is only bound to objects such as our bodies. Despite the need to handle practical time for physical experiences, one needs to connect to the timeless sphere of universal intelligence. It is our human capacity to be aware of this co-existence of practical and universal, cosmic time; the awareness of the parallel truth of life, life’s immortal intelligence that breathes the energy vibrations of consciousness even into our objectified temporal bodily manifestation.
Chapter 28 – The law of creation: Intuition, intention, and imagination
Because consumerism focuses on seeing what there already is to consume, rather than seeing what is not yet but to create, the actual law of creation seems to be often misunderstood as a law of attraction. I prefer to think about the ‘law of attraction’ as the ‘law of creation’ for the following reasons. Rather than only seeing with the eyes and getting tangible stuff, it’s necessary to learn to listen more, to create inner sight without the physical eyes. If there is a readiness to take the effort to create the image of what is heard from intuition, the mental image can be created by imagination. In fact, imagination precedes all substantial creation. Everything that humans have ever created had first to be imagined. “What is now proved was once only imagined,” as the eighteenth/nineteenth century English poet and painter William Blake put it.
Consumption for consumption purposes leaves the soul to get things out there. This is going shopping with the ego. The ego’s interest is to get as much and big things as possible to match its aspiration for grandiosity. Ego shopping tours bring back what won’t fit in well. The over-sized and over-dosed burdens then block the way for the real food of the soul. In that way,
The soul too gets consumed by the shadows of all the acquisitions that need to be stored, maintained, and loudly defended with lots of attention; attention that is missing for the attendance of inspiration. That’s how the ego’s bloatedness causes spiritual starvation. Consumption, the expectation of attracting becomes spiritual suicide; and the joy of creation turns into frantic work.
If management practices tell you that ideas are nothing and execution is everything, it’s probably because they are more interested in your execution of their ideas than in their support of yours. What you need is a revitalized self-efficient knowing as the fertile ground for your ideas that make your life. You have to start your creative process from within yourself.
Go back to your intra-past and co-create with the source within you in collaboration with others, for the benefit of all. That’s awareness-intelligent thought that manifests in benefits for everybody.
As Dean Radin in his book “Real Magic” elaborates, there is a vast of research today that shows how consciousness and intention also directly, meaning not just mediated through respective behavior, can impact the physical world. For example, plants that had been poured with blessed water were growing significantly better. And we all also know the placebo effect that causes biological reactions in our body as the sole result of our thoughts of belief.
Max Planck made the discovery that energy exists in everything. Building on that, Louis de Broglie described in 1924 the principle of wave-particles, which concluded that both energy and matter behave as waves. Everything is energy. Material particle energy and mental consciousness energy, as our human perception distinguishes, therefore, can amalgamate and synthesize into new constructs of energy, which are energetically constructing new manifestations.
Amazingly, if we employ consciousness awareness-intelligently, the fusion of the material and mental worlds can be achieved.
Our illusion of separation between matter and energy, between physiology and mentality, dissolves. If we direct our conscious energy to the socio-temporal perspectives that determine human well-being, thriving, and peace, the material manifestation of these intentions will inevitably follow too.
To intend, most simply put, is to think of something. As we’ve seen, thoughts ultimately stem from consciousness. These thoughts are mediated by and realized through awareness. Popular and observable fact-focused scientific and economic definitions of the word ‘intention’ though are rather synonymous with the terms ‘aim,’ or ‘objective.’ Many people suppress awareness about intention as a mental power that is sparked by the fire of life-source consciousness. More popular seems to be the neuroscientific explanation that the brain is producing intentional thought. What Hungarian-American academic and psychiatrist Thomas Szasz ironically said, might still be, a rather one-sided though, argument today: “If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.” The question remains, what hunches are causing the brain to think and create intention?
For what society doesn’t have a handle yet is declared abnormal. Rather than about the use of statistics to average the mass into social norms, it should be about the understanding of individual expressions of human qualities. For example, if you have ever met a person with Down syndrome, you might agree that these are most-wonderful human fellows. Due to an extra copy of the chromosome 21, people with Down syndrome experience some medical conditions, which can be mostly treated today, but which still can lead to symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, and more. Although people with Down syndrome may have delayed cognitive development and limitations in expressive language, they captivate through their superior abilities of receptivity and sensation of social cues, their display of empathy, and the demonstration of a genuine sense of affection and care for others. These are the very human qualities that brought the Down syndrome the name of ‘the divine chromosome.’ How beautifully this reminds us, that all humanity, regardless of individual medical diagnosis, originates in the same compassion and love.
The term ‘intention’ in medicine means the healing process of a wound. We may create plans based on any believes that bring us to an achievement of something out there we think is missing, or we can be drawn to deeper roots that are pulling towards internal healing, recovery of inner truth. While intuition is the messenger from and to our intra-past, imagination is the force pulling from and to the extra-future. Intention resides in the inter-present in full cooperation with others, and it is the binding element between intuition and imagination. Intention is the doing between one’s true intuitive being and imaginative becoming. If you have intentions in line with your intuition, even if there seems currently no practical way to act upon, do maintain the thoughts about them and you’ll keep a healthy attitude. The universe will conspire with you to co-create over sooner or longer if you stay awaringly alert. The benefits of staying authentic are to reveal in any case. Even without external stimuli and executions in the here and now,
Mind-wandering back to your intuition and forth into imagination does create present moment emotions and thoughts, similar to real-life experiences.
The brain cannot differentiate between real and imagined, and images get memorized similar to experiences. Therefore, intentional mentation is as much your real reality for answering the big questions of life beyond practical considerations as is the experience from physical respectively geographical immersion into a socio-cultural and possibly even un-personal interpretations of reality. The mere memory or the prospect of a joyful experience can enable a joyful desire to let go of curtailing attachment. It is highly awareness-intelligent to be able to be motivated and inspire others to use the prospect of joy from caring for others to create harmonious win-win situations.
We do not achieve because of forceful doing or hard work; although the latter is necessary too. Anything we create we have allowed to come; our creations come from who we are and related expressions of our desires. Wholeness of awareness leads to the wholesomeness of actions. In that sense, co-creation with our source is not only the end but also all beginnings. It is the start of a fully lived life. So,
Don’t look for sources of creativity outside of you. The artist and the art are inseparable.
The sculptor Pygmalion, according to Greek mythology, could call a statue into life through his sheer desire. Don’t outsource the creation of your life. Enjoy your short but wonderful journey in the phenomenal world and create.
To harness the creative power of Awareness Intelligence, we need to source inter-present intention from accessing our intra-past willfully, and fearlessly allow the imagination of the desired outcome in all the possibilities that lie in the awareness of the extra-future.
For the human mind to situationally generate meaningful thought, spacious intelligence needs reference points for orientation. Space without a reference becomes spaceless and would mean nothing to think about. We enjoy the vastness of the ocean and the sky, but it is the defining line of the horizon that makes sense of them. In the same way, we can enjoy the vastness of the source of life that meets in the form of relation and time in the matrix of socio-temporal intelligence. Like the sky and the sea meet at the horizon, consciousness and thought meet in awareness.
If we cannot develop Awareness Intelligence that enables better orientation in mental spaciousness, it would be a debilitating condition of mental lostness, a mental disorder with wide and severe consequences for all.
Why do we mistakenly seek orientation for our mental space in the physical world? We wouldn’t look to impress our mind through material consumption, would we? Given the money, consumption does not involve much of noble mental capabilities. Expecting respect, joy, and fulfillment from something that is not of our aliveness, that does not make use of our talents and gifts, is like wearing red underwear to alleviate sadness, or cross fingers for stimulating creative thinking. As much as we try over and over again, one cannot solve a mental problem with a physical solution.
Globalization has compressed our sense of physical space and practical time. The earth and parts of the universe have become smaller in the sense of being easier to grasp as a whole. Therefore, our horizon is broadened. If we continued to open up that space towards infinity without losing sight of the horizon, we could get a glimpse of increasing spacelessness and timelessness. We need to make use of this ability to fathom physical spacelessness and mental timelessness as the true acumen of life.
The collective human delusion assumes ‘spacetime’ instead of ‘humantime’ as the fabric of the human psychic universe. Why should space be the component to be studied and mastered as human beings? We are no rocks, and even they don’t care about their location. 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.
Of course, the achievements of physicalism in modern science are fantastic, they brought us, among other things, inventions of the sort of the Internet of things and so forth. However, I think it is time for the internet of human souls, an endeavor that needs a different type of intelligence. Rather than following the tradition of physics and studying the deconstruction and mechanics of the material world, I suggest deciphering the logic of humantime and its effects on psychological well-being, creative performance, and the peace of the collective mind.
Humanity would be well advised to invest in empowering humanness to address known social problems instead of using nationalized budgets for space forces and other armed defenses to fight the unknown material.
Today’s scientifically trained minds tend to start with examining the parts of a superordinate construct to explain the world and, therefore, get lost in physical details of the atomic level. This leads to further drifting away from grasping the whole. It is pretentious to claim to be able to trace and rebuild forms of life. And even if there are astounding achievements in reconstructing living organisms in biology and medicine, these never happen without the help of the animating life force itself. So, we are always at best a passenger where life itself is the driver. We don’t understand this driver of life; we only can experience it and feed back to it in the form of consciousness. In that sense, if we are saying we are the consciousness of all life too, we are a kind of co-pilot, co-consciousness, indeed. But not more as we cannot take over as the main and only pilot. Our task is confined to be, sustain, and support consciousness and let it fuel naturally an as wide range of forms of life across any time that we can aware.
“A healthy body, a healthy mind,” as the saying goes. What about people with fragile bodies, physically handicapped as, for example, Stephen Hawking, the famous wheelchair-bound physicist who died in 2018? Regardless of physical handicaps, one can nevertheless be a brilliant and beautiful mind. Albert Einstein was diagnosed with a learning disability, and Leonardo DaVinci had dyslexia, causing him to hand-write in reverse. Mental space is directionless. Mental space is an immeasurable yet lawfully formed grid that is spanning our single soul and the open sphere of all human consciousness, unbound by any notion of time.
Mental space cannot be navigated physically. We need thinking to access and travel it. Awareness Intelligence is needed to navigate the mental space of human relations and time that is humantime.
To become more agile in navigating the structure of human life, we have to train our mind and practice thinking our way through the matrix of socio-temporal Awareness Intelligence.
If you love life, look for it where it is most vibrant, where there are the fastest frequencies of energy, and where there is no blockage and slowed-down energy in the form of matter such as bodies and objects. It’s the warmth you feel in your heart, the brightness that comes from the awareness that love is space- and timeless.
Do you grow with your soul, or do you vanish with your body?
Do you choose evanescence or immortal life?
In any case, you will return to be your soul without a body anyway.
Your earth-dream illusion is, however, much easier to live with, when you define your journey being what it is, primarily a spiritual one.
Would you leave your fogged-up glasses blurring your view, or would you wipe them for clear-sightedness to enjoy the view right away?
Would you continue to look through angry, vengeful lenses at others and suffer from bad mood?
Would you look out for more things to put into your storehouse and be concerned about the stuff’s security?
Would you continue to spend time learning things you don’t like enough to call them your hobby to be pursued even after your retirement?
All these choices would be as awareness sub-intelligent at the end of your life as they are now. We are all the same distance from death. The future is always endlessly close to the present. And so is the past. In that sense, if you can learn to close the gap between your intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future, eternal life is yours.
The good thing to know is that whether alive or dead, you’ve been there before, and you are there forever.
Learning to die during a lifetime and disembody reality is undoing the enslavement of a malaware mind.
Death is not an event; it is a continuous process towards the end of our physical existence. Therefore, personal growth in one’s lifetime, at its core, is to learn to die. Awareness Intelligence is the ability to instantaneously think through such virtual deaths from the intra-past, through the inter-present, and to the extra-future at any time and in any situation to effectuate such personal growth.
Death is simply the extension of life; just with a bit more significant bodily change than in previous growth phases of the soul.
Through all three tenets of Awareness Intelligence, the continuity of deathless life on the far side of its physical existence can be experienced.
Awareness Intelligence includes our being, doing, and becoming. Your genuine intra-personal virtues determine without fail your inter-personal behavior, whose outcomes are impacting even your most far-reaching extra-personal connections. We don’t know what we do when we don’t know who we are. If we know what’s in us, we can’t be surprised by how we act out.
As you are, so you do, you can only do what you are. If you know better, you’ll do better. So, to personally grow and contribute to human growth you have to begin to recognize and expand who you are. Although on a level of life intelligence we are all the same, this does not mean that we cannot and should not be unique, individual expressions of unlimited possibilities. While there are as many potential interpretations of life as there are living beings, the common ground on which it grows is always the choice of Awareness Intelligence.
Freely being who you really are, gives you the courage to do what honestly corresponds with your authentic self.
For you and everybody can become one highest self in which meaning and fulfillment in life is found.
Don’t believe judgments of the like that are categorizing people into ‘dreamers’ and ‘doers.’ Dreaming and doing belong together. If you don’t have your dreams to follow, who else’s dream is directing your doing? Establish integrity between your being and doing and you will be able to actualize your true self. For example, do not ‘not do’ drugs; ‘be no’ drugs. It’s too hard to suspend something you believe you are. If you wish to stop smoking until the end of your life, that can be an overwhelmingly long time to wait, and you will feel miserable while you have to do so.
You are nothing of what you had learned to do if it’s not an expression of your source of life from before you became habituated or addicted to it. You are, first of all, a human being, not a human doing.
Start from there, take the chance to be your intra-past.
And what else is more purposeful than giving your very self, pure and un-poisoned self to others? So, choose to do your best inter-present.
And finally, become the self-realized human being that is aware of its all-mighty source and related duty to help all humankind to gain the same joy of Awareness Intelligence; change to become a better extra-future of more freedom from cravings and attachments and consequently of less suffering.
As the gap between a global world and a global mindset is increasing, it becomes obvious that the incoherence between organizational and individual psychology can’t much longer be afforded. It’s not only unnecessary individual stress and suffering, but the planet might reach its limits soon too. Therefore, it’s time for Homo conscientia, the aware human to evolve.
Individuals make organizations. So, it’s the individual who needs to be strengthened.
The best way to empower individuals who will be willing and able to serve the full scope of humanity is to enable their agency.
Agency comes from being one’s true self in a world in which there is sufficient belief in the possibility of including everyone in the membership of the human species that manages to share the abundance provided by the planet fairly. The need for domination over others always comes from feelings of powerlessness. Nobody needs to feel impotent though as everybody has the potential to become a fully realized human being. It is crucial to help people finding a coherent meaning to their socio-temporal perception and apprehending humantime as the true reality of human life; then, achieving more awareness-intelligent types and levels of cooperation will be possible too.
If one does not access humantime through the intra-past, the inter-present, and the extra-future, life is mixed up in ways that are harming oneself, others, and everybody. Why is that so? For example, one agonizes in the present moment if thinking and complaining about what somebody else did to them in the past. It is the state of dwelling in the short-sighted inter-past instead of the all sourcing intra-past, which makes people suffer. Another source of suffering arises when people project mistrust towards others into the relatively narrow intra- or inter-future of a mundane life. Such a hostile outlook causes life to seem a curse.
Only the extra-future embraces all humanity and time consequently and, therefore, the sense of a human kinship that can be but all-including love.
Stephen Covey is right when saying that “trust is the glue of life.” Trust connects our future to all humanity, to all human beings, even if we don’t know them, be it because they live somewhere else or because they are not yet born.
When desires are strong, and the will is weak, finding back to living in humantime is preventing a shut-down of the intellect and makes the mind disciplined.
This is the virtuous, robust path of Awareness Intelligence, which connects most careful reasoning with most profound consciousness.
By actively integrating these two ends of awareness, no un-reflected believes will compromise anybody’s potential, and no conditioned automatisms hamper perception, knowing and its intelligent use.
