Authority and the Non-development of Being #2 (Additional Considerations)


When a person makes contact with a form of authority, he experiences, generally unconsciously, two different emotions: one is a mechanical association with his period of childhood when the principle of authority emphasized the equation error = punishment; the second is the perception of authority as a reflection of the observer’s absolute loss of an inner identity. This generates a sort of unease. Indeed, in front of an image that evokes a symbol of authority (nevermind if this authority is real or fictive), this sense of loss emerges.
A human being that develops (in terms of inner development) through a defined and conscious process of development of a stable (and real) sense of “I Am”,  progressively loses every feeling of fear towards every type of authority.  What occurs is, that through the same act of self -discovery, he begins to “think with his own head”. His  thought is activated because of the act of “recreating” himself. So,he begins to think, and does not allow thoughts to arise in his mind in an associative way.
Such an individual begins to understand that to accept what is imposed upon him from an “authority” is not always correct, and that every human being has the right of freedom of expression in his own matters. This is the first step toward getting in touch with life in the most mature way. In such a phase, the individual is able to examine more objectively, the environment in which he lives and to expand a more liberal and conscious vision to all those who come in contact with him: he becomes better- structured in order to be of more assistance to society.
Indeed, a productive society cannot be a whole of childish and fragmented beings with a repetitive and mechanical intellect. How can one be creative in the true sense of the meaning (so able to create something new and better) if he has more tendency toward a disgregation of  relationships with others, and to a disgregation in himself?
But this is the condition of our modern social culture, and this, with keen observation, is well visible.  This can be seen among those who have the role of directing the destiny of a nation, such as those which should represent a religious authority.
The loss of an inner individuality makes people feel more safe if they are aggregated in large masses, even if they have to accept the most disharmonic visions as indisputable laws just because they belong to the “higher fields of society”.
But, today, the number of people who come to question this behaviour is in constant growth. These individuals begin to question in order to understand more about themselves and the world in which they live. This is, at least, what this writer perceives. What these people need is a system capable of making  this aim possible – an inner renewal that perhaps will influence, if not the whole society, at least the environment they inhabit.
Probably, speaking about the establishment on this planet of a true authority based on reciprocal respect and love is far from the actual reality, but this can surely be possible on a small scale – in our personal, daily lives

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”.
