Self-Development through Facebook!


How many hours do we spend against the PC’s monitor?  How many useful and useless things do we do during a day on various pages such as, in this case, on Facebook?  To what degree does this attitude harm our state of consciousness?  And the most important question, can the act of surfing on web pages such as Facebook become a sort of training for our self-development?

First of all, of course, staying against the PC all day can’t be healthy…in this way, we miss the most important part of the day…living our life.  But, maybe, even an “ill-famed” eater of consciousness such as Facebook could become a good gymnasium for developing our attention…but, don’t overdo this practice !!  🙂

When we use the PC, the best method for maintaining a state of awareness, and not falling asleep against the monitor, is to focus our attention on the body.

If we strive to keep the back straight, we achieve “naturally”,  a better state of attention.  Indeed, a straight posture produces a better state of awareness, and this is one of the main reasons that such posture is suggested during the meditation.  Staying for hours on the computer, it avoids much physical damage typical for those who sit for most part of the day.

Also, a good suggestion is to often check the legs and shoulders to notice if they are constrained, and, if they are constrained, let us relax them!

A calm and relaxed “natural” breathing is also very useful:  in this manner, mind can be engaged with the “work” on the PC and, at the same time, we can divide our attention by maintaining, relaxing, and adjusting our body posture and breath slightly.  After some time of such practice, we will notice the development of a greater awareness and transform our time spent on Facebook or other web pages, into moments of relative nerve regeneration and mental health.

Try it…it needs some practice, because when we are on the computer, there are many subjects to identify ourselves with, but I found practice useful.

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”.
