FROM CONSCIOUSNESS TO AWARENESS INTELLIGENCE / VON BEWUSSTSEIN ZU BEWUSSTSEINSINTELLIGENZ

FROM CONSCIOUSNESS TO AWARENESS INTELLIGENCE (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 150 x 120 cm)

An electrical device neither contains nor produces electricity itself nor is our body the source of life energy. Instead, a body only comes to life and a brain becomes conscious when it is connected to life energy. Next: Control is required. While consciousness turns on the power supply, intelligent awareness controls activities and behavior (e.g. using record buttons, erasing, playing, stop buttons). A person, although stimulated by consciousness, would not be able to realize his or her self-actualization without intelligent (self) experience. So, it is not enough to sit in consciousness-raising meditation. It is also insufficient to run only externally controlled programs. Awareness Intelligence requires:

  • getting up thoughtfully (vs. being instinctively driven by un-reflected emotions),
  • to react courageously to one’s own soul desires (vs. following external programs),
  • to create authentically (vs. depending on external expectations), and
  • to connect universally with a higher life goal (vs. self-interested belonging to exclusive groups).

Let’s turn on the energy from within and play our own lives for the good of all!

VON BEWUSSTSEIN ZU BEWUSSTSEINSINTELLIGENZ (M. Sager, 2021. Acryl auf Leinwand, 150 x 120 cm)

Ein elektrisches Gerät enthält oder produziert weder selbst Elektrizität, noch ist unser Körper die Quelle der Lebensenergie. Stattdessen wird ein Körper nur dann lebendig und ein Gehirn bewusst, wenn an Lebensenergie angeschlossen. Weiter: Kontrolle ist erforderlich. Während das Bewusstsein die Stromversorgung einschaltet, steuert Bewusstseinsintelligenz das Verhalten (z. B. Verwenden von Aufnahmetasten, Löschen, Spielen, Stopptasten, etc.). Ein Mensch, obwohl zwar von Bewusstsein angeregt, wäre ohne intelligentes Bewusstsein/intelligente (Selbst-)Erfahrung jedoch nicht in der Lage, seine Selbstverwirklichung zu realisieren. Es reicht also nicht aus, in bewusstseinsfördernder Meditation zu sitzen. Auch ist es unzureichend, lediglich von aussen kontrollierte Programme ablaufen zu lassen. Bewusstseinsintelligenz erfordert,

  • nachdenklich aufzustehen (vs. instinktiv von ungeprüften Emotionen getrieben zu werden),
  • mutig auf die eigenen Seelenwünsche zu reagieren (vs. externen Programmen zu folgen),
  • authentisch zu kreieren (vs. abhängig von externen Erwartungen), und
  • sich universell mit einem höheren Lebensziel zu verbinden (vs. eigennützigem Zugehören zu exklusiven Gruppen).

Lass’ uns die innere Energie einschalten und unser eigenes Leben zum Wohle aller spielen!

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 from the real work to be done. I will, however, offend you with substance, so you can accomplish getting very clear on your worldview / identity: Who are you really beyond social conditioning? What would you stand for if you had the self-confidence to overcome social pressure? Why are you here as a complete human being beyond economic considerations? Also, the feeling of being offended is a warning indicator that is showing you where to look within yourself for unresolved issues.

I may offend people, but I also make it easy for them to forgive me. You’re not alone; my content and approaches contain wisdom that offends quite everyone. I love people in general (not only the proximate ones who flatter me), and that’s why I care to offend you too. To be genuinely kind means to have the courage to offend. Of course, people like sugar. But shall I, therefore, feed them with more of what is not suitable for health? I’ve learned that if I love myself, I have the courage to allow me to get offended (which doesn’t mean to let me abuse, though).

If we feel offended without being able to forgive the offender, we actually say to disagree with the Right of Freedom of Expression. By instilling more fear, people become more susceptible to being offended without the willingness to forgive. And that’s how the freedom of expression gets strategically undermined by authoritarian systems. Today people are brought to be offended by others just breathing (we can even see it by people wearing masks;-)). It’s more important than ever to stand up for the right to offend, which is implicitly part of the Right of Freedom of Expression. So, have the courage to use the right to offend “sacred” symbols (who says they are sacred?), offend emotions and feelings, offend countries, governments, organizations, as well as political parties, religions, and traditions, and cultures.

Living in a comfort-seeking and fear-based materialistic society, my humanistic approach rejecting salvation-seeking from extrospection is offending people, of course. For me, however, respecting people doesn’t mean accepting their illnesses, victim roles, and unfulfilled potential. If we respected such unhealthy limitations, we’d offend humanity (and life, or god, as you like) as a whole. Indeed, many people live life in the offense to life itself as they put material goods over life. Yes, we justify our physical survival (which in our society doesn’t have much to do with survival rather than with a decadent luxury lifestyle) by not assuming responsibility for the many who suffer hunger, exploitation, and abuse.

I deliberately combine the science of psychology, the wisdom of philosophy and the intuition of art. Art is often very well suited to insulting people, challenging them and opening them up to creative and self-reflective thinking. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to offend or hurt someone who doesn’t care. This is the reason why people often have no interest in the artistic (or spiritual).

Group thinking inhibits critical thinking in favor of a wider human community. For example, religions proclaim to spread unconditional love and the universal truth of their respective God, but feel offended by other religions that believe in another God, who in turn should represent the same unconditional love and absolute truth according to these others. That’s the big lie of hypocrites on both sides. Such belief systems do base on exclusivity to offer fearful people the seeming security of belonging, which, however, they nevertheless never experience (therefore their defensive attitude). But there is a more inclusive way to feel more satisfyingly human. Learn to love truly! Love is the opposite of fear. If you’ve learned to get offended, you’ve learned to love. Love is hard to offend; a heart full of love doesn’t get irritated and offended irrevocably; it doesn’t see the world in terms of threats against one’s ego-assumed superiority, advantages, and privileges over others. Instead, strong minds who dare to seek being offended, not for hate but growth purposes, can find what humans actually are looking for: actualizing themselves through meaningful change toward their best self (which can’t be measured by material success alone, to make that clear once more).

You may have enough “friends” who will tell you what you want to hear and who are happy that you are unsuccessful (because it justifies their own stagnation). If I can’t offend you, I haven’t done my work of serving you decisively. With this in mind, thank you for allowing us to offend each other, not with style, but with substance for learning opportunities for our personal growth, individually and as a human collective.

BECOME RESILIENT: How to mentally configure the three basic human needs of safety, satisfaction, and connectedness

BECOME RESILIENT: How to mentally configure the three basic human needs of safety, satisfaction, and connectedness

Inspiration and wholeness in nature (Rigi, Switzerland)

“Resilience is a process reflecting positive adaptation in the face of adversity” [1, p. 1]. What adversity means to different people depends on individual, socio-cultural, and contextual circumstances.

The Big Five or five-factor personality assessment model (FFM) was found to be able to depict the concept of resiliency as a personality aspect as accurately as specific resiliency measurement tools [2]. Personality traits described and assessed with the five-factor model [3] consist of five mostly independent personality trait dimensions, i.e.,

  • extraversion,
  • conscientiousness,
  • agreeableness,
  • neuroticism, and
  • openness to experience [4].

A resilient personality is characterized by high scores on the FFM dimensions of extraversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness to experience, and low scores in neuroticism [5]. Openness to experience seems to be particularly important; it should be seen as’ openness to cultural diversity’ too [6], including the ability to regulate one’s emotions [7] and to avoid extensive sensation seeking, which, for example, bears the risk of substance abuse [6]. Equipped with such personal abilities, the rapid (global) changes in our times [8] caused by ever novel, complex, and changing socio-economical, environmental, technological, and health-related factors [9] can be met with higher resilience.

Other psychological concepts related to coping with adversity are the so-called ‘tolerance for ambiguity’ and ‘tolerance for uncertainty’ measures. These abilities are closely linked to mindfulness. For example, people educated in open-mindedness and who have learned to tolerate ambiguity can better persevere in their tolerance even in situations of insecurity and danger [10]. In that context, hope as related to resilience is enabling individuals to imagine a better future and to endure the present despite the uncertainty for such an achievement [11]. However, it’s not done with hope alone. A strong belief in and an identification with the possibility of achievement are the drivers for the work ethic that required for the realization of the hope. That way, in a first step, the promotion of hope might be a useful approach to reduce uncertainty intolerance and consequently to increase the tolerance for ambiguity for a more open-mindedness that leaves room for thoughtful and empathic decisions that lead to work towards desired and desirable outcomes.

Yes, a major outcome of resilience is empathy. It’s not threats themselves, but how people can resiliently respond to them. If there is no openness to decipher ambiguous, uncertain information, one risks to take the shortcut of, for example, stereotyping and promote black-and-white thinking that is further hindering an open mindset. A vicious spiral, indeed!

Maslow (1968) made the point that we are oriented toward either growth or safety in our everyday lives and that a growth orientation is more favorable for psychological health and well-being [12]. When self-protection (needs) get reduced, self-awareness can arise and facilitate the appreciation of multiple possibilities in situations, which might be the stage of personal development where tolerance for ambiguity as the capacity to accept paradoxes starts to become feasible [13]. Systems of mass conformity, authoritarianism, and nationalism/racism (as well as an emotional attachment to materialism in general) are offered as a means for safety, unfortunately at the cost of growth possibilities through autonomy, creativity, and the use of reason.

Unfortunately, “dealing with ambiguity, respectively the ability to cope with adversity (resilience) is seldom taught, but individuals striving for higher qualities tend to understand that uncertainty is the gateway to opportunity” [14, p. 30]. Therefore, societies should prepare the next generation for life, and it will be crucial how we instill hope and support our children to live constructively with uncertainties while retaining a high tolerance for ambiguity and open-mindedness as required to be truly resilient and find the solutions sought for the benefit of all [15].

Practically spoken, to get more resilient, one needs to be ready to adapt her/his belief system. Unfortunately, our ‘stable identity’ obsessed ego causes us to not like change. Nevertheless, as long as there is a fear of loss, there will always be defense mechanisms that hamper open-mindedness, and as a result, resilience too. There is good news, though, to adopt a resilient belief system, the three basic human needs of (1) safety, (2) satisfaction, and (3) connectedness don’t need to be abandoned, while it is essential to think about their socio-temporal ‘configuration’, which I call Awareness Intelligence:

  1. Access your spiritual source, your intuition, free from social conditioning, and as close to the source of life that has brought you here. You are part of the intelligent universe independent of your upbringing; what else could be safer.
  2. Meet others in the here and now openly, without past judgments and future expectations. Such non-transactional and unconditional love brings the highest satisfaction.
  3. Expand from separateness to wholeness. The future isn’t about physical survival as long as possible; it is about meaning and connecting to the whole humanity (even future generations) and our soul during a lifetime. With such a connectedness, future worries dissolve.

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

Acrylic on canvas, 50 x 70 cm

            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 (threefold), 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 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.

            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.

            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.

            There are three entry points to universal humantime: The mind-travel to before birth, the travel into parallel time, and the one to after death. They all represent different approaches respectively different combinations of dimensions of human relations and time. Like a room may have a door, a window, and a balcony, all three openings contribute to its well-lightening. All three Awareness Intelligence pointers together ultimately lead to the most profound possible enlightenment.

            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.

            Instead of closed and linear dualistic conceptualizations, it will be understood that the world works rather in open and cyclical threefold structures. Human awareness will shift from conflict-triggered, reactive and fragile ‘either-or’ decisions that are, at best, balancing acts of competitive situations to a willful harmonization into sustainable healings and boundaryless cooperation.

            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.

Excerpts from Awareness Intelligence. Holy, Wholly, and Wholesomely Human (M. Sager, 2019)

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?

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?

That would be living a life aligned to humantime.

Healing beyond relief

The quest for pleasure and happiness has driven us into a lot of emptiness, addictions, and violence. However, the post-shallow-happiness era is all about meaning. What do we get from it? Joy. The fear of not getting enough leads to unhealthy opulence. The over-desire to be safe and comfortable leads people into risks and symptoms of dissatisfaction like, for example, obesity and depression. It’s worth to examine one’s desires awareness-intelligently. Some people seem to manage their exaggerated desires well. But often they have just replaced one unhealthy obsession with another, stronger one. This might lead to some application of one or two Awareness Intelligence modes, but not of all the three. That’s why often the deepest motivation of athletes can stem from anger, the motivation of politicians from greed for power, and the one of religious teachers from the desire to withdraw from inter-personalities. These awareness-unintelligent motivators often claim a high price; the more dominant their position, the more they block the soul’s longing for expanding into a harmonious application of all three tenets of Awareness Intelligence.

Anger, like many other negative emotions, is a reminder of limitations in a larger perception of life. It can be only replaced and kept away with certainty with a quality of mind that is unconditional love, timeless kindness, and purposeful service at the same time. 

Desires don’t have to be something bad. Life itself is the soul’s aspiration to expand and to become aware. The crucial differentiation is between extrinsic and intrinsic desires. Extrinsic desires do seek pleasure from material and outwardly supplied motivators, while intrinsic desire is the realization of the inspiration from within. Intrinsic and extrinsic desires are both legitimate to a certain extent; one puts the priority on the sensing of the culturally understood world of form, while the other focuses the real, conscious universe of socio-temporal awareness.

When getting tired in the hedonic treadmill of life understood as depending on pleasing sensual pleasures and relieving bodily tensions, it is helpful to remember that real joy lies in virtue-seeking and virtue-realization.

Joy feels so superior to pleasure because it comes from meaning. Conscious life itself is the meaning. So, whenever our thinking and activities are congruent with the holy, whole, and wholesome nature of life, a sense of meaning arises. Pain, which is not to confuse with suffering, is often closely implicated with the experience of joy as well. For example, without patient waiting, there is no joyful arriving; without childbirth pain, there can be no joy of birth; without dying during a lifetime, there can be no personal growth.

Pain indeed is unavoidable, but it always comes with joy. Suffering, on the other hand, is the result of awareness-unintelligent conduct, such as attributing one’s destiny to the conditions of the outer, uncontrollable world instead of creating the world one wants to realize from the inside.

Joy ultimately comes from the trialogue of your awareness with your true self, your unconditional relationships, and the selfless contributions that connect you to humanity.

Fearful attachments to fleeting pleasures cause more fear, greed, hoarding, protective, and aggressive reactions. These are the reasons for our suffering. Fear incapacitates love, the love for ourselves, for our relationships, and for any fellow human being. The socio-temporal matrix of the intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future (see earlier chapters) helps you to remember what you really want and what brings you infinite and immeasurable joy in place of mere glimpses of pleasure that will never sustain any real sense of feeling safe, satisfied, and connected.

Problems from unharmonious awareness occur when the universal desire for learning is restrained. Critical thinking diminishes when human’s inherent compassion and desire for truth is constrained. Unsatisfied desires are substituted with harmful pleasures, which can be found all too easily. Not everything that momentarily feels good is good. Be it through sugar-laden food, tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, or other promises of consumable salvation; resourceful enterprises invest all they can in turning us into dependable customers. The streets are full of advertisements for that purpose. There is little visible promotion for helping people staying independent and self-sufficient human beings though. Nevertheless, more or less consciously, people feel that they are caught in dependability as their control over their behavior is slipping. Losing control then is compensated with aggression and violence against oneself and others. It is only a return to awareness-intelligent thought that allows self-control to be regained. Spirituality is an indispensable factor in most approaches to cure addictions and other out-of-control behavior. Understanding the use of Awareness Intelligence in that vein might help to overcome the stigma that still is attached to spirituality. Spirituality, in that sense, is nothing else than respecting all life’s nature that is in ourselves and anybody else. Life’s true nature that we all are is free of the self-imprisoning stress of lining up urgent desires and exclusive events instead of a timeless and inclusive state of being of importance.

Don’t fight your negative habits. Don’t fight symptoms. Hopelessness raises the value of chemical aids. Therefore, it’s hopelessness itself that needs to be addressed in the first place.

Hope comes from within, from your intra-past. Don’t rely on external approval and support for becoming who you really are and want to be. Use your Awareness Intelligence to freeing yourself from others’ opinions and potentially wrong beliefs about yourself that may hold you down. You are not dependent on single substances, behaviors, or even persons. Doctor’s don’t heal you, healing occurs within yourself. It’s life itself with all its rich variations, diverse types, and different ways that expect you to know and express what you really want. 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. Real healing may require you to quit some situations, be it jobs or relationships, anything that is unsupportive of your journey in line with holy thinking.

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.

Safety, satisfaction, and connectedness

It can be argued that there are three basic human needs. First is safety. You were safest before birth. In your mother’s womb, you were still well protected. Then the rough, dark, and cold world appeared. On the other hand, also sunshine on your skin, light in your eyes, and later the awareness that consciousness, the spirit of your soul is still and will always be with you. You need to re-connect to your intra-past, your safe source that is always yours.

The second of the three basic human needs is satisfaction. If you look at what you do from a non-judgmental viewpoint that is free of other’s past-based opinion and future pressures, then fearless creation, experimentation, and joyful learning become possible. The same is true for relationships. If you meet others in the here and now without transactional distractions and ulterior motives, 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. Billions of others have gone through human life before, and many more will follow in the perpetual renewal and passing of the precarious expression of life. The end of one life is, at the same time, the start of another one. Just within yourself, you can achieve an awaring of how your ‘coming-from’ and ‘going-to’ meet in humantime, which connects you to infinite time and humanity as a whole.

Some people feel alone even among people. And there are people who never feel alone, even when solitary. What is needed is a shift from separateness to wholeness.

It is not our corps connecting the soul to life; it is our soul connecting the body to life. Enjoy your vision, but trust your inner eye. There is no need to physically bind others as there is a deeper connection to whole humanity anyway.

Chapter 45 – Healing beyond relief

— In love for my daughter Natalie and all children of this world. —

The ability to respond

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.

Surviving and thriving through change

As we see ourselves, we see others. And as we see others, we see ourselves. If we reduce humanity to cultural sets of human expression, specific groups, and prevailing opinion and behavior only, we constrain ourselves too. Life is as you see it. If you see it with a continually watching mind, the whole world becomes open to you.

While the human mind respectively the intellect changes over time, the soul does not. We can feel that clearly when we separate mental awareness from bodily sensations and instead picture the wholeness and infinity of life. Our way of thinking can be changed.

The most profound, impactful and sustainable way to change the thinking is to change the layer from where thought arises: awareness.

The human condition is no longer dependent on social identity alone as it learns to integrate the three modes of the intra-past, the inter-present, and the extra-future into increased and undivided awareness. As our thoughts and actions become more symmetrical, life will never feel like a lie again.

Living in consort with a comprehensive ability to observe everything at any time is a source of being youthfully enjoying one’s body, exploring the world, appreciating social encounters, and achieve high learning goals. Living an awareness-intelligently inspired life guarantees continuing motivation to become and stay our best self. For us, this is a deeper experience, and for others, we’ll make a bigger impact.

Hopelessness in the sense of not believing that change is possible leads to depression with the known consequences of low school and work performance, reckless behavior, poor health, self-injury, and even suicide. Multi-cultural competence positively influences a sense of social justice and the promotion of change. The awareness about the possibility of doing things differently across cultures provides a showcase for the relativity of any culture.  Global citizenship is not a travel-lifestyle, it should rather be an attitude of compassion. Multi-relational ability in the sense of Awareness Intelligence is a precondition for cross-cultural competence, but goes beyond as it is culture-neutral. Any travel starts within.

Cultural competence can be developed by putting one’s feet in another’s shoes. Awareness Intelligence, however, is putting one’s consciousness in another’s soul.

This will not only enable us to experience some different walks of life but to learn to qualify all of the life’s souls. Real and lasting change comes from the level of mental models that enable awareness. Only if the deep-rooted individual mindsets shift towards forming a regenerated collective of deculturized societal structures, human behavioral patterns will start to change accordingly as well.

Humans like stability to feel safe. Society prefers consistency in people’s behavior to render them into predictable and plannable resources. And yet, people also do not like repetition that leads to boredom. By an awareness-unintelligent mind, everything tends to become judged as boring eventually. However, as people have learned to fear punishment from not reliably contributing to the production and information processes of the modern economic societies, many of them learned to accept monotonous courses of life. While being incentivized by punishment-free long periods of compliance, many forgot the excitement of rhythm and surprising improvisations of a freely lived life. Avoidance is a characteristic of both the awareness-unintelligent inter-past and inter-future. Interdependencies, as they are typical for poor Awareness Intelligence, are justifying the past and controlling the future, which is highly frustrating for individual’s authentic development. Only if the inter-past is shifted to the intra-past, judgment-free and timeless self-realization become possible. And only if the intra- and inter-future are transposed to the extra-future, self-focus and fear of punishment and lack of control disappear.

We can enjoy social interactions together in the inter-present, but the past belongs to us alone, and the future ultimately belongs to all to come.

Isn’t it incredible that

“Men have made millions of laws to punish crimes, and they have not established even one to reward virtue”

as the Neapolitan economist Giacinto Dragonetti already more than 250 years ago remarked?! Societies’ need to define the tolerable appearances and thresholds of punishable deviations from limiting and therefore provocative social norms is in stark contrast to letting people virtuously thrive. Sadly, if not constantly rags were held in front of the bulls’ eyes, all the bulls would remain gentle and friendly as it actually is their true nature.

The universe preserves itself through change, and so humanity too needs change to survive. Change is our nature, and yet typical management education is about controlling change to create the illusion of stability in administering life as a business. Awareness is about acceptance, willingness, and courage; it is the basis of voluntary human adaptability and learning. If you don’t know what you possibly don’t know, you cannot learn what you don’t know. It would be strange if we didn’t increase our view over time, learned more, and consequently changed our mind. 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 music intuits your individual and collaborative intention to the imagination that the music is just perfectly reflecting the vibes of melted body and soul, Awareness Intelligence has come to play.

Enthusiastic learning and teaching

Human beings have an innate curiosity. The bigger the world, the bigger the field for exciting discoveries. The broader one’s awareness, the broader the grid available to navigate the human mind and cartograph the explorations. There are three entry points to universal humantime:

  1. The mind-travel to before birth,
  2. the travel into parallel time, and
  3. the one to after death.

They all represent different approaches respectively different combinations of dimensions of human relations and time. Like a room may have a door, a window, and a balcony, all three openings contribute to its well-lightening. All three Awareness Intelligence pointers together ultimately lead to the most profound possible enlightenment.

  • Is what we teach our children mutually beneficial for other children too?
  • Is our teaching inclusive and useful to all humanity?
  • Is it timeless?

If so, these are awareness-intelligent lessons worth to be spread. Such shared insights would come from and support full human potential. Unfortunately, the propagation of obscured views is in vogue. It seems like blind people are leading blind people and nobody realizes the lack of sight. Possible, because “in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is a king,” as the proverb goes. In any case, many do feel that there is something wrong. All the unnecessary conflicts and aggression are the awareness-blind persons’ desperate canes searching for a way out of disorientation and anticipating hurting clashes.

It’s the awareness-blind persons’ own helplessness and frustration that leads them to hatred, self-harming, and violent behavior.

Without prescribing a specific cure, it’s always possible to provide everybody in minimum a reference system to aid their orientation to find their cure themselves. If we teach humantime by means of explaining and internalizing the socio-temporal matrix, Awareness Intelligence, and therefore peace will ensue. If you want to re-produce your humanness beyond survival mode, create and enthusiastically inspire others by teaching how to consciously apply systematic thinking to activate the inner eye of awareness that is including the full scope of the socio-temporal system of human life.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), both obesity and hunger are increasing globally. According to foodaidorganization.org, one out of seven people is not able to live a healthy active life due to famine, while one-third of food globally is wasted. More than three million children under the age of five die every year because of poor nutrition.

  • How unaware must we be to allow worldwide military budgets whose weekly amount is as high as the costs of eradicating world hunger for a whole year?

If we help an affluent person getting richer, we get lavishly rewarded; to help a starving child, we have to do unpaid volunteering. This is the value system as reflected by the economic, capitalist system. No human being would agree with that if she or he was aware of what’s going on. We know the facts, but there is no thought reference system in place that prevents fallbacks into forgetting due to agreeing to narrow scopes and competitive win-lose thinking. All education aiming at providing individuals, companies, and nations competitive advantages obviously teach no better than to fragment our awareness on a specific level against others and become trapped in self-protecting unwholesome thought and behavior.

Children are asked to study the substantial features of the planet earth in school, but why don’t they systematically learn how to navigate the mental landscape too? Later on, given the money, people travel and report from the beautiful places and cultural objects around the world they have learned about in school as this would be a personal achievement in itself. Have they explored the people’s souls as well? Do they come back with lasting connections and solidarity with the people they have met on their journey? Why don’t we with the same passion and effort also mentally travel the collective human soul wherever we are and bring back its perpetuating sense of higher inclusiveness that would make the world a better place? Rather than mere geography, people should also be taught something like ‘mentography,’ respectively Awareness Intelligence as the science of how to get the chance to become a healthy and health-giving human being from early on. It’s possible to understand love in any context in any part of the cosmos.

Mental travel can bring us to all humanity, to all life at all times, even just within ourselves.

Instead of teaching how to justify current political structures, which are always local, we should educate for how to become global citizens who care for all. It’s not age, but rather learned self-efficacy and imagination that would create true wisdom. Children don’t have a history. Burdening our history on them is unfair. Let’s help them to build their own future.

Teaching attitude (which is the ‘how to do’), rather than knowledge about content (that is the ‘what to do’) would empower people to evolve from consumers to creators, from passive endurers to active shapers of their life. It has been proven over and over that people cannot count on current global economic practices in preventing them from being seduced into unhealthy, addictive, and otherwise harmful transactions. An awareness-intelligent person would not support the broad and public selling of toxic substances like nicotine by exploiting people’s longing for support in leading a happy life. Again, a branch of a tree would never try to harm branches of the same tree.

Is it really possible to change education and increase people’s awareness-related intelligence? Is it like a sorcerer’s seeming folly to insist in the impossibility to make bones for a jellyfish, as Carlos Castaneda in his book “A separate reality” pictures? Yes, and no. It’s not necessary to miraculously create some physical spine. However, everyone can insist on the possibility to teach humanity the use of Awareness Intelligence as a mental spine, which will reliably stabilize immoral forms of economies and societies in its own even more effective way. Cultivate an upright posture to reflect your awareness-intelligent mental attitude. Teaching the visualization of the socio-temporal matrix could well become the source of change towards a more stable world of flourishing human beings. The more Awareness Intelligence is practiced, and the more insight gained, the more interest awakens. As a result, a virtuous circle would establish ever more seeking of inspiration, which then leads to the continual sustainment and increase of intelligent awareness.

Awareness Intelligence, by appreciating individual differences, helps everybody in individually clarifying the most fundamental values of the humanity of which they are an equal part. When speaking about values in organizations, for example, corporate values, I think the term is misleading, and values should rather be named as what they are: interests.

  • What other values than human values can human beings have?

It’s absurd to put price tags on life, although wages, life insurances, and VIP statuses are doing precisely that. Based on the awareness-intelligent value of humantime, listening and servicing capacities in place of marketing and sales will meet the true human needs and find new solutions for unlocking people’s suppressed desires to be kindly and cooperatively of true, not only financial, value.

The new leaders of the 21st century will inspire the next generations through their display of Awareness Intelligence.

Progress, hard work, ambition, and desires will still play a role, but these will not be spent to aggravate excesses and addictions to harmful behavior. Mating will involve more show-casing of one’s true human qualities so that every Jack will find his Jill. The world of awareness won’t be built on scarcity anymore as the mental attitude is based on the constant knowing of the existing abundance and the possibility of its sharing to meet all the needs anybody in possession of the capacity of awareness can ever have. Exchange of genuineness and authenticity will evolve in which everyone will find whom and what she or he really wants and needs. Humanity will progress in its own favor by not focusing on the preservation of current privileges, but by empowering the next generation who will ask whether you have been an awareness-intelligent hero as well.

Exchanging and building energy through gratitude

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.

Becoming wholly human

Wholeness can be felt. We can feel it when the three Awareness Intelligence modes climax into full and sound multi-perspective quality of mind.

Wholeness establishes when the intra-past, the inter-present, and the extra-future consolidate into a mental state, and when intention unites unconditional love, timeless kindness, and purposeful service.

It’s a feeling of enthusiasm. Enthusiasm, which comes from the Greek word ‘enthousiasmos’ that means “possession by a god, inspiration.” The holy inspiration, in my case, is often occurring together with signs like goosebumps and joyful tears as a bodily response to the intensive realization of having become wholly and eternally connected. Awareness so intelligent to be able to embrace all humantime is indeed like embracing God.

When the intelligences of the intra-past, the inter-present, and the extra-future unify into the grid of paramount awareness, an energetic representation of a unified field emanates. In physics, forces are theorized to be transmitted through so-called fields. Deepak Chopra uses, besides the term of the ‘unified field’, also the term ‘cosmic consciousness,’ in which the ‘in-here’ and ‘out-there’ meet.

Awareness Intelligence can be understood as such a field where life intelligence, respectively consciousness, and mentalizing are harmoniously unified.

The unified field of Awareness Intelligence is connecting our thoughts with the nature of life that is within all of us human beings. It is the unified state of humanness that has become all-including and timeless love that lets us witness its power through showers of bliss. It’s that realization of one’s humanity, which is accompanied by a sense of deeply fulfilling enthusiasm.

The term ‘Samadhi,’ as used in yogic practice, is sometimes defined as a non-dualistic state of consciousness, which might be in line with a state of harmonious awareness. Matching aforementioned experience of enthusiasm, Indian Yogi Paramahansa Yogananda describes Samadhi as a blissful state of super-consciousness in which the individual soul is perceived concurrently with the cosmic spirit. Samadhi is considered the final stage of yogic meditation at which union with the divine is reached. And so is Awareness Intelligence at the stage where all its three modes of the intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future point together to a most comprehensive knowing of humantime.

Awareness Intelligence is a maximum mental concentration of psycho-spiritual energy that brings the uncoordinated streams of volatile thoughts of unawareness into one steady river of complete understanding.

Buddhist enlightenment, the so-called Satori, described by Zen Buddhism as a state of the mind that is experiencing the insight into the nature of existence seems to resemble a state of Awareness Intelligence too.

Unimportant urgencies versus purposeful service

Urgent things are not necessarily important too, albeit urgency often gets confused with importance. The human psyche tends to be prone for urgencies as it wants to seize on early information to quickly make decisions to clarify and re-establish a sense of security. Awareness Intelligence helps to distinguish between mostly externally triggered artificial urges and internally motivated real importances by putting these two very different qualities of desire into proper context. Urges often are related to transactions, which are, to a certain extent, unavoidable in today’s everyday life. However, being disproportionally determined by external demands is distressful. If the socio-temporal matrix’ unfavorable, unintelligent fields had to be described with one characteristic, it would be ‘urgency.’ Awareness Intelligence, on the other hand, is about importance. Life does not urge us in the sense of not letting enough time to deal with the matter at hand rightly. Awareness-unintelligent people do. Something urgent is only considered to be so because it is judged more important now in the short-term than later and in the long-term.

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. This provides proof that the temporarily assigned importance is not real.

To sell something of short-lived value, therefore, has to be done in urgency. As the value erodes rapidly, the urger will, if not immediately successful in completing the transaction, look to complete his or her business somewhere or with someone else.

Always take your time to think thoroughly and systematically. You won’t miss anything of real value. In contrary, when striving for awareness-intelligently expanding human and temporal scope for deeper experiences and bigger impacts,

Why should you sacrifice the good of all in the whole future for momentary present urges of some few only? Awareness-intelligent solutions are never in a hurry. Following other’s urgencies also comes with the opportunity cost of not following through on one’s own direction. Running after external urgencies is to neglect the voice of source intelligence itself, which ultimately always will claim its priority over sooner or longer. Not accepting such priorities of real human nature and disregard the consequent cultivation of humantime always comes with taxes impacting one’s well-being. There are fathers who feel urged to sacrifice their free time for more of the same relatively disliked work that had already more than well-fed and protected their families. Why? Because there is a deficit of awareness about what is really important. They function unaware of their real needs. They don’t hold the control themselves, but rather are controlled by their acceptance of urgencies imposed by their employers, organizations, and businesses. They give away their life into relatively narrow transactions that are non-inclusive of their intra-past, nor are they aware of the extra-future of all humanity. These people work for securing their illusion of a stable intra-future, which however, can’t never be real and purposeful. Only the continuance of life in the extra-future is certain. Therefore,

We should accept that the future doesn’t belong to us. If it did, we would know its course and have gotten direct control over it.

Consequently, there is no need to waste one’s life by pursuing the seemingly urgent over the important.

The future belongs to all; to our children, to their children, and the children of all other people’s children.

To be aware of that fact is part of being awareness-intelligent and prevents from taking on transactionalities that dismiss anybody who is not swiftly giving what is expected from them. These are the sort of unimportant transactions people can’t wait to retire from. Because the real purpose of a human’s organic existence on planet earth is to voluntarily give its unconditional loving actions away, to show off its kindness, and to express its divine creativity to the benefit of all before returning to be formless universal life oneself again. That is all a human being has and will ever have. It’s this service to all humanity that all spiritual wisdom and religions in principle find to be the real purpose of life. However, even world religions often missed the full scope of what is meant by “others.” If others are only the ones within one’s own religious community, service to others is not extending to and respecting the full scope of human kindness. Unfortunately, institutional religions often risk being inherently awareness sub-intelligent from this point of view.

Limited liability corporations insist on their limited liability while suing others for claiming the same. They, per definition, don’t intend to assume responsibility and they work against the interests of other groups from an inter-company competition perspective to assert their interests over others. It’s the primary purpose of for-profit organizations to maximize return on investments, to serve the investors respectively to help the increase of their money. ‘People first’ messages, therefore, can’t be more than lip services only. Profit optimization does not stop at a certain level. There are no profit caps defined to stop when it is enough, even when the earnings are shooting through the roof. That’s why resources get more concentrated in certain places, while they become scarcer in others. Working for a corporation means always being a competitor, adversary, and curse for the ones competed against and scoped out of the circle of beneficiaries. Being aware of that makes it hard to want to be such a burden in a system of win-lose for humanity overall. Of course, everyone has to survive in their current economic environment, but,

For Awareness Intelligence’s sake, stop when it’s enough and don’t do more of what you actually don’t want to do.

Focus on where it’s possible to serve them all because that’s what you always want to do. Cooperation in principle, as an existing alternative, is a more awareness-intelligent economic approach than competition. Awareness Intelligence will help the evolution of economies to transform from being based on organizational liabilities to humanitarian assets.             

What’s in for you when you engage in finding better solutions for all? Awareness Intelligence guarantees satisfaction and fulfillment, inspiration to get up and do important work, and openness to love and being loved, as well as affection and compassion towards whom and what really matters. Every one of us is needed, and there is never a better moment than now to sow the seeds for a healthy future for all by awareness-intelligently enacting values of equity and sustainability.

Humankindism

mathias sager awareness intelligence chapter 37

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.

A casual conversation about the upcoming ‘80% is Psychology’ webinars (powered by Awareness Intelligence)

Warming up “uhm”:-) for the ‘80% is Psychology’ webinars. Looking forward to this exciting series, starting from August 1st, 2019 together with Patty Wolters!

Circumthinking

mathias sager awareness intelligence

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.

Think thrice

mathias sager awareness intelligence chapter 34

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.

Triadic philosophies and wisdoms

Awareness Intelligence is compatible with key messages of Lao Tzu’s more than two thousand years old traditional Chinese philosophical teachings. Taoism speaks about living by the three treasures.

  1. One treasure is ‘simplicity,’ or ‘humility,’ which is in line with the meaning of the intra-past Awareness Intelligence mode. Intra-past knowing is about the return to one’s true nature, before limiting socio-culturally limited identities are construed.
  2. The next Taoist life treasure is ‘patience,’ or ‘merci.’ The Awareness Intelligence category of the inter-presence signifies a same quality of love that is unconditional and pure even towards the ones whose past or outlook could be irritating for a transaction-oriented mind and whose weakness would not arouse a material interest either.
  3. The third treasure of life, according to the Tao, is ‘compassion,’ or ‘frugality,’ which is well reflected in the extra-future tenet of Awareness Intelligence that, once it is achieved, results in benevolence and responsibility for the benefit of all humanity rather than in ego-inflated ambitions.

In Buddhism,

  1. first the ability to know past lives,
  2. second the ability to know future lives, and
  3. third the ability to know the essential nature of sufferings in the present life

describes a triadic set of insights along the threefold temporal structure of human life. This teaching not only underlines the soundness of a threefold structure but also supports the pertinence of human time that is inherent to Awareness Intelligence as well.

Also, the three Buddhist marks of existence, from which all human delusion and suffering purportedly stems, can be mapped to Awareness Intelligence in the following way.

  1. Overcoming suffering from the illusion of permanence can be achieved through the pre-life awareness of the intra-past,
  2. suffering itself is addressed by the inter-present that extinguishes any suffering-causing bond from relationships, and
  3. the selfless connection to humankind as a whole lies in the healing power of awareness of the extra-future.

A tripartite world that works in triplets

awareness intelligence mathias sager chapter 32

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.

mathias sager Awareness Intelligence socio-temporal matrix

  • 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.
