Ponderings about simple things that are virtually impossible to understand

A human is a tripartite being.  He is composed of mind, body and emotions.  During his life on earth, these three components are fundamental for his development, and each of these parts have the support of the other.  Every objective development must be done with the participation of all these three components:  if one wants to develop some physical skill, this must include the intellectual and emotional component.  These three components as tools for human inner development are symbolized in the ancient cultures by the triangle shape.

The Intellectual component is all the impressions recorded in life and transformed into thoughts.  Logic, reasoning and reflections, independently if results are of something we have learned from imitation, or based on our experience, are all parts of the intellectual sphere.  Its bases are in our experience, and the past experiences of others Therefore, we can say that our mind is always conditioned by the past.  So, it is important to develop an open and flexible mind, which could accept new theories and experiences; a conditioned and conservative mind is unsuitable for possible individual development.

The Emotions are all the sensations and feelings that arise when something is experienced by us.  Feeling the beauty of a landscape or a body, feeling compassion and loving kindness for another, falling in love or being attracted by someone, are all emotive reactions.  Eating and even reading this post could produce emotive reactions in all of us. Without emotions, every kind of development would be impossible.  Releasing all the emotive constraints is crucial for a harmonic development of a man.  The negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, and envy have to be eliminated, because they have a kind of vibration that is deleterious for our mind and body.

The Physical body is obviously intended as the whole of what we can see (exterior form) and the organs, nervous system, and the vital energy that feeds all the physical systems.  Even if we can see this material part of us, its functioning is almost unknown and ignored, and this is clear when we observe our relations with the physical machine.

Behind these functions, there is what we know as “Being”.  In all the ancient traditions – even the early Christian – the being is what transmigrates from life to life is to acquire new experiences with the aim of achieving Spiritual Consciousness.  The being is what we really are – our “natural” I.  The Being needs as tools for this evolution, the physical body and the mind:  with the first he experiments with the material world, and the second tool, the processes of the data of what it has experienced.  The emotions are the other manifestations of the being and its perceptive tool.  The emotions are also important to fix remembrance.  To suppress the positive emotions – a usual thing in contemporary society, is to inhibit the development of the being.  All our power resides in the being that is practically unknown by the majority.  The ancient traditions always said that for a possible development, one must first know himself (NOSCE TE IPSUM).  This means to realize our true nature, what we really are, the being that is suppressed by the personality developed by cultural conditioning and the limits imposed by social life.  We must develop the awareness of our true nature, the being.  This can be achieved only by a conscious and “mathematical” process of working on ourselves, developing a stable center of consciousness that resides in our being, and not in the personality.  So, the being will influence the body, the mind and the emotions which otherwise, in a normal state of “consciousness” are under the slavery of the external influences.

Through a specific system of learning, the being becomes the master and manifests its  powers and qualities through the mind, emotions and body which cease to be under the influences of the outer world.  The emotions become the true expression of the being, and the personality – that must not be destroyed – is guided exclusively by our true nature:  our Being.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
