Dyer’s many best-selling books on the practical psychology of personal development towards a positive transformation for all of humanity  brought him the … Continue reading
Human interactions don’t lack technical but rather cooperative communication skills. The good news is that pro-social behavior can be learned. Collective argumentation is one means to scaffold learners’ engagement in group work. Also, the negotiation of values is vital for achieving a shared sense of agency and accountability between teachers and students. In computer-enabled learning, consequential engagement in the form of enabling equitability and showing the benefits beyond single contributions, … Continue reading
A Reply to the Article “Obedience” (ashiftinconsciousness.wordpress.com). PLEASE VISIT. Comment: Impressive (depressing) figures. Thanks for sharing as this is of uttermost importance. I’m practicing here for drafting letters to Gates and co. Why do these rich/powerful not change the world for the better? Because they just habitually might not change their convictions that made them multi-billionaires? Because they don’t see the chain of causes leading to inequality? Regarding Bill Gates, … Continue reading
Most of us have heard about the misery existing in many parts of the globe. 3.5 billion people live at $2.5 a day. According to UNESCO, every day 22,000 children die because of poverty. Why is it so easy to forget that? Good people end up by concluding that we do our best we can, because “we have it good here,” and we must be given credit for the care … Continue reading
I’m sorry that I just drove by In my elegant suit and tie Seeing you but ignoring the fact That actually I could act When I looked into your eyes I couldn’t hold the years of lies Must be the age of my daughter Your message I will teach her My main concerns in life Beyond the means to survive I can’t do that anymore If I have to accept … Continue reading
A life nicely centered between birth and death As it is acting like knowing its symmetry around a peak Assuming a ceiling point until which to invest According to plans for success and wealth Allowing a balanced ascension and decline All forming the pyramid of life OR A life interestingly gone astray in chaos of time As it is anticipating what was never expected to occur Assuming abundance seen as … Continue reading
Timeless kindness is the extension of linear time and social relations towards the inclusiveness of the entirety and eternity of humankind. This socio-temporal intelligence’s purpose of maximized love and courage is to claim the extra-future that’s in for all. – Mathias Sager (The Humankindist’s logic of time and relations)
Evan Esar, a 20th-century American humorist and author aptly put that “Character is what you have left when you’ve lost everything you can lose.” When you have lost everything you can lose and therefore are being left without any proof of material or social power, you can’t identify yourself other than with your mere actions and with how you treat people. Would that be a frightening expropriation and dis-empowerment or … Continue reading
Humanist psychologists strikingly identify globalization, health, ecology, and spirituality as areas of contemporary and future human problematic behavior, and point to a large population of depressiveness worldwide. Do you also think humanity hasn’t yet found a good recipe for peace, justice, and happiness? In fact, it is our all aspiration to make the best possible contribution to the well-being of all. Just, how to do even better as there is obviously … Continue reading
The universe is perfect. No need to think about the meaning of life. Just follow your instincts. We are dependent on the earth, not vice versa. So go get what’s in for you. Everybody wants just the best from their perspective. Everybody gets what she/he deserves. Don’t overthink. We are not human doings, we are human beings. So just be. There is no salvation. We are ruled by evolution’s selection … Continue reading
Quotes on the ‘Happy Colorful Growth’ way. Happy: see it. Colorful: believe it. Growth: act on it!
«From amition to purpose.» Generally, if results are not achieved, it is often not because of missing tools (the wrong «how to»), but because of the wrong purpose and motivation (the wrong «why»). Human beings are most willing to open their mind in a more selfless attitude, if fears of external pressure or desire for reward are overcome by faith and intrinsic motivation.
I would have difficulties to explain on my deathbed that I didn’t try my best to (1) base my happiness truly on other values than materialism, (2) consequently foster a co-operative economy and strengthen the Third Sector (civil society), and (3) grow to a spiritually evolved and inter-dependently connected human being.
