Inner Science#1: Recognize the mental processes


English: human mind for performance psychology...

Since I was I child, I had the peculiarity to find interest in how things function, and soon I focused my whole attention on the inner nature of humans.

Six years ago I bought my first PC, and I didn’t need much time to realize the similarity between the informatic systems and the human mind. Today I consider this an obvious thing, considering the reason that the PC functions are that they are built in accordance to mechanical thought patterns, but at that time, this was a small revelation.

Our mental and thought reactions, our whole psychology, if not directed in a conscious way, respond to external reactions exactly as a computer- in a mechanical way.

And this happens, (as I wrote in a previous post concerning the intellectual function) because our mind is binary, such as the informatics binary system. Nevermind if our brain is structured to perceive all in a tridimensional way, it seems that our mind cannot function in ways other than in terms of “yes” and “no”, “good” and “evil” … “on” and  “off”.

Ok, fortunately, there’s a difference between the human mind and a PC and  indeed we have more possibilities than a computer. But, differently from what most suppose or take as guaranteed, this “something more” exists only as possibility, not as something already developed, and if an individual doesn’t adequately develop  this field, it will remain only a possibility.

Just consider this common thing: the influence of the media. It’s just enough to take a look at the TV, newspaper or surf the Internet, and you’ll be bombarded by news of every kind. It’s really difficult, I would say almost impossible, to find “real”, “genuine” information, in the sense that it hasn’t already been manipulated, distorted, misrepresented or even totally false. It is a distortion of the reality towards the real problem which people respond to  in a determined (and expected) way.

But, it’s enough that the media stop talking about a specific “question” which the masses (includes ourselves) then lose  interest  in  and then forget .

This is not a post intended to discuss the methods used by the media, but  to describe how very easy it is to condition public opinion towards what is considered as a real fact: a perfect, careful and well- organized manipulation conducted by those who are able to organize such a ploy.  And all this is possible because the human’s ordinary reactions are habitual, mechanical, and predictable…such as a PC is predictable and malleable.

But, even if this mechanism of the human psyche is a blind spot, it could be seen also as an enormous advantage: if our behavior, attitudes, emotions and thoughts can be conditioned, programmed and determined from the external environment, this means that we can do the same thing from the inside, from within ourselves. Ponder about that, it is not a small thing.

What we need are two main elements: being willing and ready to admit that, without a concrete training in controlling our thoughts, our mind will remain mechanical, thus automatic; the second thing is to learn the correct language for the programming of the mental processes. So, recognize the state which we are in, then search (and find) the principles able to overcome this state.

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”.
