Sympathetic Mental Resonance

Sympathetic Mental Resonance

Definition of sympathy

  1. a: an affinity, association, or relationship between persons or things wherein whatever affects one similarly affects the other

b:  mutual or parallel susceptibility or a condition brought about by it

c:  unity or harmony in action or effect – every part is in complete sympathy with the scheme as a whole — Edwin Benson

  1. a: inclination to think or feel alike : emotional or intellectual accord – in sympathy with their goals

b:  feeling of loyalty :  tendency to favor or support – republican sympathies

  1. a: the act or capacity of entering into or sharing the feelings or interests of another

b:  the feeling or mental state brought about by such sensitivity – have sympathy for the poor

4.:  the correlation existing between bodies capable of communicating their vibrational energy to one another through some medium

Sympathy is affected by duality.

Duality: Positive or Negative Consciousness. At any one moment in life a person is situated in a state of consciousness and thoughts that are either more positive or more negative.

Sympathetic resonance or sympathetic vibration is a harmonic phenomenon wherein a formerly passive string or vibratory body responds to external vibrations to which it has a harmonic likeness. The classic example is demonstrated with two similar tuning-forks of which one is mounted on a wooden box.

For a Sympathetic Mental Resonance to occur your consciousness must be attuned to what would cause the resonance. Your consciousness is a vibratory body.

Sympathy is a good name for a good state of positive consciousness. Positive Sympathetic Mental Resonance is a good thing and is not a problem in our lives. It leads to a deep sense of interconnectedness with the world around us. This means you are tuned into positive consciousness.

Sympathy is a good name for a bad state of negative consciousness. Negative Sympathetic Mental Resonance is a bad thing and is a problem in our lives. It leads to a deep sense of separateness from the world around us. This means you are tuned into negative consciousness.

Autonomic nervous system: A part of the nervous system that regulates key involuntary functions of the body, including the activity of the heart muscle; the smooth muscles, including the muscles of the intestinal tract; and the glands. The autonomic nervous system has two divisions: the sympathetic nervous system, which accelerates the heart rate, constricts blood vessels, and raises blood pressure, and the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate, increases intestinal and gland activity, and relaxes sphincter muscles.

The sympathetic nervous system involuntarily responds to a bad state of negative consciousness. This prepares us for win-lose fight or flight with the world around us.

The parasympathetic nervous system involuntarily responds to a good state of positive consciousness. This prepares us for win-win cooperation with the world around us.

Negative Sympathetic Mental Resonance means that negative things that happen around you may make your consciousness involuntarily match those negative things. Involuntary is the keyword here. This is an automatic reaction that is programmed into your subconscious mind. You may have programmed it or your culture may have programmed it.

To give you a mind picture it is like coming upon someone who is suffering from deep worry about something; to involuntarily suffer with them would be a negative sympathetic response.

This sets you up to be a victim of emotional vampires:

The most important thing is to give your attention to conscious awareness. Actively listen to people; don’t be working a rebuttal but check to see if you are being sucked into a vortex of negativity. Are you relaxed or up tight? Is your breathing relaxed and normal? Are you present or are you fading off to Never-Never-land? This is very important; you need to be in conscious control of the moment or you will be involuntarily sucked dry of your emotional energy.

Misery loves company

You have heard the saying “misery loves company”. If you talk to me about your “misery” I want to know that you are working on it; I do not want to keep your “misery” company. If the same “misery” story-line keeps coming up regularly, with no progress to lessen the “misery”, then I no longer want to be a part of this.

 

There are no incurable diseases; only incurable people

There are no incurable diseases; only incurable people

There are one-story intellects, two-story intellects, and three-story intellects with skylights. All fact collectors with no aim beyond their facts are one-story men. Two-story men compare reason and generalize, using labors of the fact collectors as well as their own. Three-story men idealize, imagine, and predict. Their best illuminations come from above through the skylight.  Oliver Wendell Holmes US author & physician (1809 – 1894)

Oliver Wendell Holmes had it right. He was pointing to skylights; a connection to The Spiritual Mind or Super Mind if you will. Most science ignores Spiritual Mind or Super Mind process and just thinks of man as a physical entity only.

The Conscious, Subconscious, And Unconscious Mind – How Does It All Work? See link:

http://themindunleashed.com/2014/03/conscious-subconscious-unconscious-mind-work.html

I am assuming that Ernest Holmes means Subconscious and Unconscious Mind in the following:

Living the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes-

It is the sum total of all our thinking that we must consider. And in doing this one of the first things we learn is that about 90 percent of our thinking is unconscious.

Psychologists now tell us that 80 percent of our accidents are unconsciously invited; that at least 75 percent of our diseases are unconsciously created; that our success or failure in life is largely unconscious; and, of course, our happiness or our misery is almost entirely so.

-Living the Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes

The two previous sections cover The Conscious, Subconscious, and Unconscious Mind; but do not cover the Spiritual Mind or Super Mind process.

Ease or health is an endogenous process; springing forth from within. It is the NORMAL STATE of a human being that is not blocking the natural flow of health from within. There is a spiritual or energy presence within us that is programmed for perfect ease or health; a ghost in the machinery so to speak.

So what blocks ease or health, an endogenous process, from springing forth from within?

I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened. Mark Twain? Many sources cannot tie one down as original.

Most mammals except man have a life span that is seven times the span from birth to maturity. Man on the other hand has an average life span that is three and a half times the span from birth to maturity.

21 x 3.5 = 73.5; 71.4 years was the average life expectancy at birth of the global population in 2015 (WHO).

Deu 30:15 Behold, I have set before you today life and good and death and evil,

Deu 30:19 I call Heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, that you may live, you and your seed,

What gives?

Stinking Thinking

Stinking Thinking strategies are fundamental to behavior manipulation.

Operational Definition of Stinking Thinking. Stinking Thinking language fosters a bad way of thinking that makes you believe you will fail, that bad things will happen to you, or that you are not a very good person.

https://psychcentral.com/lib/the-top-10-types-of-stinkin-thinkin/

We really think our way into bypassing, or introducing a virus into (programming term), our NORMAL STATE of ease or health. This then creates dis-ease.

I will repeat this:

Trine’s Law

No disease can enter into or take hold of our bodies unless it finds therein something corresponding to itself which makes it possible. And in the same way, no evil or undesirable condition of any kind can come into our lives unless there is already in them that which invites it and so makes it possible for it to come. The sooner we begin to look within ourselves for the cause of whatever comes to us, the better it will be, for so much the sooner will we begin to make conditions within ourselves such that only good may enter.  IN TUNE WITH THE INFINITE OR, FULLNESS OF PEACE POWER AND PLENTY BY RALPH WALDO TRINE

Can you now see how you could be an incurable person?

Thought Patterns

Thought Patterns

A pattern is something that happens in a regular and repeated way.

A habit is a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance; an acquired mode of behavior that can become nearly or completely involuntary.

Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind. Unity School of Christianity

A negative or neurotic thought pattern reproduces itself with monotonous regularity, as if it were an entity.  Sigmund Freud? I heard this and am trying to remember it! If anyone has the exact quote I would appreciate having a copy.

There are always two creations; first in the mind and then in the physical world.

It is only negative or neurotic patterns that are the problem. Good healthy patterns are not problems.

(When) Are You Neurotic?

Identifying neurotic patterns

Posted Nov 23, 2012

Neurotic habits are automatic or ritualized patterns of overt behavior that people engage in to alleviate anxiety and provide a sense of familiar security. The problem is that, carried out over the long term, the habitual patterns are maladaptive. ..

Neurotic emotional patterns come in two basic flavors, over-regulated (meaning suppressed and not expressed) and under-regulated (meaning hyper-sensitized and over-expressed). Feeling states per se are almost never bad. ..

The human relationship system is guided fundamentally by needs for relational value, navigated on the dimensions of power, love, and freedom. Neurotic relationship patterns emerge when people adopt rigid styles or express extreme interpersonal reactions in response to fears that their relational value needs won’t be met…

Our defenses are the way we manage tension between conflicting goals and filter stuff out of our full consciousness. The defensive system tries to bring harmony to the various other systems of adaptation, but sometimes does so at significant costs. Two very common defenses are repression and rationalization. Repression is when material is blocked out of self-conscious recognition. Rationalization is when we make up reasons that hide our true needs or feelings.

Finally, our verbal beliefs are networked into systems of justification that provide us with theories about ourselves in the world. Cognitive psychotherapy became widespread because it helped individuals realize that at the roots of much suffering were maladaptive interpretations or beliefs about how the world ought to be. For example, many people have core beliefs that they are ineffective or unlovable, and in vulnerable periods interpret setbacks as confirming such beliefs. Others have rigid or extreme beliefs about how the world must be if they are to function (e.g., the belief that everyone must like them or that they must be perfect all the time). Others make catastrophic interpretations of minor events. The problem is that these beliefs legitimize actions, feeling states, or perceptions of self or others that lead to a host of maladaptive patterns. Cognitive psychotherapy is effective because it teaches folks to catch, check, and change maladaptive beliefs into more adaptive narratives…

Consider what situations make you feel insecure and then look across your patterns of habits, feelings, relationship processes, defenses, and justifications and reflect on where neurotic patterns might reside in you. And, if you are feeling open and secure enough, ask someone you trust when and how they think you are neurotic…

After all, the very nature of neurotic processes is such that we will very likely be blind to them.

But how do you change thought patterns.

It is simple, but not easy.

One of the fastest ways is; Be Impeccable With Your Word. See the following link:

http://www.wholenessofliving.com/philosophy-spirituality/your-word/

A lot of negative thought patterns begin with sloppy talk [idle or, careless words]. Think before you speak and reflect on your words after speaking. Review all your words before and after speaking; this also includes self-talk that happens silently and internally.

It is simple, but not easy.

Maladaptive Behaviors definition:  Maladaptive behaviors are actions or tendencies that don’t allow an individual to adjust well to certain situations. They are typically disruptive and dysfunctional behaviors can range from mild to severe in scope. Maladaptive behaviors are typically used as a means of reducing mental discomfort and anxiety but are not effective in this regard and can sometimes even make it worse.

Also look at habits such as nail-biting, hair-pulling, not getting work done, and anything that limits normal functioning. The list is as long as humankind’s imagination! Become aware of the habit, interrupt it, and reflect on the cause. I used to be a nail-biter and I can tell you habits are hard to break. In the end there is only one way to quit; JUST DO IT. Not once but hundreds; maybe thousands of times!

It is simple, but not easy.

Another big source of negative thought patterns is being obsessively self-absorbed; thinking that everything that happens around you has the purpose of upsetting you. This is a major symptom of depression. See the following link:

http://www.wholenessofliving.com/philosophy-spirituality/shortcuts-in-living/

Don’t think about yourself all the time. To truly be healthy emotionally and mentally you need to feel an attachment to something much larger than yourself. This means thinking about helping other people, animals, the earth, the universe, God, or wherever you feel you can be helpful.

Remember, simple is never easy.

Our Two Party Political System is the problem

What form of business organization do the Republican and Democratic national parties take? LLC, Corporation?

 

  1. Kevin Robinson, PoliSci B.A.. Have worked as a campaign volunteer

Answered 24 Sep 2015

The national political parties are non-profit corporations, exempt from taxes under the IRS code as 527 organizations.  527s can also be independent political action committees, but the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee have been sheltered under those rules for a long time.

Remember, the national parties in the US are actually umbrella groups, with member parties from the 50 states, DC and the territories.  How any local party may be structured can be different, based on state laws.

There are also often separately registered structures, such as the national campaign committees to elect party members to the Senate and to the House of Representatives.

Why Are There Political Parties?

To discover the origins of political parties in the United States, we have to go back a couple of centuries to the birth of our nation. As our Constitution was drafted and eventually ratified, two groups with different interests emerged.

Alexander Hamilton led a group of leaders who wanted a strong central government that would protect the country’s growing businesses. They became known as the Federalists and are considered the first political party in the United States.

In response to the Federalists, Thomas Jefferson led a group of leaders who wanted to limit the power of the federal government, leaving most of the power in the hands of state and local governments. These anti-Federalists became known as Democratic-Republicans.

Over the next century, political parties would come and go. Around the time of the Civil War, there were four major political parties. Our modern system with two major political parties — the Democrats and Republicans — has evolved and solidified over the last century.

-Google Search

So a strong central government or limit the power of the federal government; but where do individual issues fall in this argument? Basically they are chaff in the wind (and I do mean wind; there is a lot of bluster in both parties) of the basic argument.

First I wish to declare myself an unaffiliated (independent) voter.

In a January 2016 article on The Hill, Michael Coblenz wrote “The two-party system is destroying America. Democrats and Republicans are in a death match and the American people are caught in the middle.”

In an article for The Wall Street Journal, Matthew J. Dowd writes “The evolution of the 2016 election has shown that the two major parties are going to have to deal with the disruption independents are forcing on the system. This cycle is likely to be an accelerator for the success of independents locally and at the state level – developments that can only be good for our democracy.”

In my view the US is theoretically a multi-party system, the country has been operating as a two-party system since the Civil War. Is the polarizing extremism of this kind of system truly tearing America apart?

http://www.wholenessofliving.com/philosophy-spirituality/fundamentalism/

It is party and ideology over all else.

Another thing is the winner takes all mentality.

Our founding fathers set up a philosophy that generally says the more far reaching the decision is; the larger the majority required in making the decision. With two party systems the temptation of making the decision with the smallest majority as possible, offering the greatest advantage to the party, is too great.

We have states where someone can get 51% of the vote and take all the electoral votes; this is not representative government. This is government by lottery.

The Nuclear Option is a parliamentary procedure that allows the United States Senate to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes.

Supposedly only Congress can declare War, so we rename it a “police action” or something else. It still stinks like “War”. The implements and people of War are moved around without deliberation. Congress just sits there and lets it happen; so one person makes the decision. How representative of We The People is that?

As an unaffiliated (independent) voter I am stuck in the area between the extreme movements of a pendulum from one party to another. Another analogy is a tennis match where one point gained is another’s lost. Governing this country is not a zero sum game. One group should not be advantaged more than another. “Uniform” is a word used in the constitution; basically it means equal and fair treatment across the board. For rich or poor young or old; whatever range you choose to delineate bounds.

The reason we have two political parties is that the “Two” have driven out of the market place all the others and make the rules to their advantage.

My opinion is that we can no longer afford to have a majority party of “One” run our country.

Your Word


Your Word

Mat 12:35-37  “The good person out of the good treasure [within him] brings forth good [things], and the evil person out of the evil treasure [within him] brings forth evil [things]. But I say to you*, every idle [or, careless] word which the people shall speak, they will render an account concerning it in [the] day of judgment. “For by Your Words you will be justified [or, declared righteous], and by Your Words you will be condemned.”

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word [or, the Expression of [divine] Logic], and the Word was with [or, in communion with] God, and the Word was God [or, was as to His essence God].

Gen 1:26 And saying is the Elohim, “Make will We humanity in Our image, and according to Our likeness, and sway shall they over the fish of the sea, and over the flyer of the heavens, and over the beast, and over all land life, and over every moving animal moving on the land.

In the light of idle [or, careless] words, words that will justify or condemn you; I can’t say it any better than the following:

Excerpts from: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz-

The first agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult one to honor. It is so important that with just this first agreement you will be able to transcend to the level of existence I call heaven on earth…

The first agreement is to be impeccable with Your Word. It sounds very simple, but it is very, very powerful…

Why your word ?  Your Word is the power that you have to create. Your Word is the gift that comes directly from God. The Gospel of John in the Bible, speaking of the creation of the universe, says, “In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word is God.” Through the Word you express your creative power…

What you dream, what you feel, and what you really are, will all be manifested through the word…

The word is not just a sound or a written symbol. The Word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby to create the events in your life…

The Word is the most powerful tool you have as a human…

Depending upon how it is used, the Word can set you free, or it can enslave you even more than you know…

The human mind is like a fertile ground where seeds are continually being planted. The seeds are opinions, ideas, and concepts…

The only problem is that too often it is fertile for the seeds of fear…

What is important is to see which kind of seeds our mind is fertile for, and to prepare it to receive the seeds of love…

Impeccability means “without sin.” Impeccable comes from the Latin pecatus, which means “sin.” The im in impeccable means “without,” so impeccable means “without sin.” Religions talk about sin and sinners, but let’s understand what it really means to sin. A sin is anything that you do which goes against yourself. Everything you feel or believe or say that goes against yourself is a sin…

When you are impeccable, you take responsibility for your actions, but you do not judge or blame yourself…

From this point of view, the whole concept of sin changes from something moral or religious to something commonsense. Sin-begins with rejection of yourself…

Being impeccable with Your Word is not using the word against yourself…

Therefore, if I get angry and with my word send all that emotional poison to you, I’m using the Word against myself…

If I love myself I will express that love in my interactions with you, and then I am being impeccable with the Word, because that action will produce a like reaction. If I love you, then you will love me. If I insult you, you will insult me…

Being impeccable with Your Word is the correct use of your energy; it means to use your energy in the direction of truth and love for yourself…

The truth is the most important part of being impeccable with Your Word

Only the truth will set us free…

Gossiping has become the main form of communication in human society. It has become the way we feel close to each other, because it makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do…

Fear and suffering are an important part of the dream of the planet; they are how the dream of the planet keeps us down…

Using the analogy of the human mind as a computer, gossip can be compared to a computer virus…

All of this mess can be caused by one little computer virus. One little piece of misinformation can break down communication between people; causing every person it touches to become infected and contagious to others…

The result is a world full of humans who can only read information through circuits that are clogged with a poisonous, contagious virus…

We talk to ourselves constantly and most of the time we say things like, “Oh, I look fat, I look ugly. I’m getting old, I’m losing my hair. I’m stupid, I never understand anything. I will never be good enough, and I’m never going to be perfect.” Do you see how we use the word against ourselves?…

If you understand the first agreement, be impeccable with Your Word, you begin to see all the changes that can happen in your life. Changes first in the way you deal with yourself, and later in the way you deal with other people, especially those you love the most…

If we adopt the first agreement, and become impeccable with Our Word, any emotional poison will eventually be cleaned from our mind and from our communication in our personal relationships…

When you are impeccable with Your Word, you feel good; you feel happy and at peace…

Impeccability of the Word can lead you to personal freedom, to huge success and abundance; it can take away all fear and transform it into joy and love…

With the impeccability of the Word you can transcend the dream of fear and live a different life. You can live in heaven in the middle of thousands of people living in hell because you are immune to that hell. You can attain the kingdom of heaven from this one agreement: Be impeccable with Your Word.

-Excerpts from: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

Remember words are imbued with power. Understand their meaning and the history of their meaning. Then choose carefully which words can help you Be impeccable with Your Word.

Be Agreeable Inwardly

Be Agreeable Inwardly

Mat 5:25-26 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; that the opponent not deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Truly I say to you, You shall by no means come out from there until you have paid the last kodrantes.  [i.e. a small, Roman copper coin worth about 1/500th of an ounce or 0.05 grams of silver]

Agree   ἴσθι  isthi  is’-thee  agree, be, give thyself wholly to.

εὐνόεω  eunoeō  yoo-no-eh’-o  to be well minded, that is, reconcile: – agree. [resolve, settle]

Luk 6:37  “And stop judging, and by no means shall you* be judged. Stop condemning, and by no means shall you* be condemned. Be forgiving [to free fully, literally relieve, release, dismiss], and you* will be forgiven [freed fully, literally relieved, released, dismissed].

Who is your main adversary? It is your Inner Judge and Victim. It is your adversarial reactions from inside of you to what happens in your life.

For a review of your Inner Judge and Victim see the following:

http://www.wholenessofliving.com/philosophy-spirituality/agree-with-your-adversary-quickly/

“Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our PSYCHOLOGICAL RESISTANCE to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. RESISTANCE creates suffering. STRESS HAPPENS WHEN YOUR MIND RESISTS WHAT IS…The only problem in your life is YOUR MIND’S RESISTANCE to life as it unfolds.” Dan Millman

So much of Jesus’ teachings are about WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE US; the kingdom of heaven is within. Could it be that the kingdom of hell is within also?

What do you enable in your life?

Stimulus; you are disturb[able]. Response; you are disturbed.

Stimulus; you are irritable. Response; you are irritated

Stimulus; you are shame[able]. Response; you are shamed

Stimulus; you are guilt[able]. Response; you are guilty

When my emotional balance goes out of kilter my response is to get disagreeable inwardly.

How can you be agreeable inwardly?
Like I always say it is simple, but not easy!
It is acceptance and forgiveness.

In the moment you start to feel disturbed, irritated, shamed, or guilty, there is a space, you can choose a new response/agreement; Accept; then Be forgiving [to free fully, (literally relieve, release, dismiss)], and you* will be forgiven [freed fully, (literally relieved, released, dismissed)].

Viktor Frankl/Quotes-

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.

-Viktor Frankl/Quotes

It is what goes on inside of you; these are the most important things in your life; where your value comes from.

Things might happen around you and inside of you, but you do not have to choose to suffer.

Ease or Disease?

Ease or Disease?

Definition of ease

1:  the state of being comfortable: such as

a :  freedom from pain or discomfort

b :  freedom from care

c :  freedom from labor or difficulty

d :  freedom from embarrassment or constraint :  naturalness known for his charm and ease of manner

e :  an easy fit

2:  relief from discomfort or obligation

3:  facility, effortlessness did it with ease

4:  an act of easing or a state of being eased

Medical Definition of disease

:  an impairment of the NORMAL STATE of the living animal or plant body or one of its parts that interrupts or modifies the performance of the vital functions, is typically manifested by distinguishing signs and symptoms, and is a response to environmental factors (as malnutrition, industrial hazards, or climate), to specific infective agents (as worms, bacteria, or viruses), to inherent defects of the organism (as genetic anomalies), or to combinations of these factors :  sickness, illness—called also morbus; compare health

Definition of health

1:  a :  the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit (She is the picture of health).; especially :  freedom from physical disease or pain (nursed them back to health)

b :  the general condition of the body (How is your mother’s health?)( in poor health)( enjoys good health)

2:  a :  a condition in which someone or something is thriving or doing well :  well-being

(defending the health of the beloved oceans — Peter Wilkinson)

b :  general condition or state (poor economic health)

3:  a toast to someone’s health or prosperity

Medical Definition of endogenous

1:  growing from or on the inside endogenous spores

2:  caused by factors within the body or mind or arising from internal structural or functional causes endogenous malnutrition endogenous psychic depression

3:  relating to or produced by metabolic synthesis in the body endogenous opioids endogenous amino acids—compare exogenous

 

Ease or health is an endogenous process; springing forth from within. It is the NORMAL STATE of a human being that is not blocking the natural flow of health from within.

No disease can enter into or take hold of our bodies unless it finds therein something corresponding to itself which makes it possible.

Let’s consider a sneeze.

We sneeze and then say “I must be catching a cold”; we start believing in catching a cold. So we start fighting our body’s healing force.

Actually a sneeze is a natural cleansing process. After a sneeze we should say “thank God a foreign substance is on is way out of me!” We should use our awareness of this process to drink lots of fluid and get more rest. Then we are assisting our body’s healing force.

Most of us have knowledge of all sorts of things that will assist our body’s healing force; but we fail to apply them in our life.

Start today taking small steps to assist your body’s healing force; and do them every day. After you become accustomed to doing them; you just may add more to your life.

Remember; a little bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing.

Events that unfold around you are only happenings; they become experiences when you add value to them inside yourself. Be careful the value can be positive or negative.

It is what goes on inside of you; these are the most important things in your life; where your value comes from.

Deliberate action turns knowledge into practical wisdom. © 2016 Russel Steffy

Deliberate action: The conscious intentional process of doing something; that means you are a DOER.

Practical wisdom: the actual repeated application or use of valued ideas, beliefs, or methods; as opposed to theories.

Mat 6:19-21 “Stop storing [or, treasuring; to amass or reserve (literally or figuratively)] up treasures for yourselves on the earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal, but be storing [or, treasuring; to amass or reserve (literally or figuratively)] up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in nor steal, for where your* treasure is, there will your* heart [fig., inner desire] be also.

Luk 17:20-21  Now having been questioned by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God is coming, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; neither will they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For listen! [Strong imperative](what I am saying next is very important) The kingdom of God is within [or, among] you*.”

Joh 14:26 “But the Counselor [or, Helper], the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, that One will teach you* all [things] and will cause you* to remember [suggest to the (middle voice, one’s own) memory: – put in mind] all [things] [all, any, every, the whole] which I said to you*.

Educare and Educere: Is a Balance Possible in the Educational System?

Bass, Randall V.; Good, J. W.

Educational Forum, The, v68 n2 p161-168 Win 2004

Craft (1984) noted that there are two different Latin roots of the English word “education.” They are “educare,” which means to train or to mold, and “educere,” meaning to lead out. While the two meanings are quite different, they are both represented in the word “education.” Thus, there is an etymological basis for many of the vociferous debates about education today. The opposing sides often use the same word to denote two very different concepts.

 

One side uses education to mean the preservation and passing down of knowledge and the shaping of youths in the image of their parents. The other side sees education as preparing a new generation for the changes that are to come–readying them to create solutions to problems yet unknown.

 

One calls for rote memorization and becoming good workers. The other requires questioning, thinking, and creating. To further complicate matters, some groups expect schooling to fulfill both functions, but allow only those activities promoting educare to be used.

 

Balance in educational aims is a valid focus for educators. This author contends that, in order to achieve balance, educators must start by changing the organizational structure or the ways in which decisions are made. Utilizing stakeholder perceptions in determining aims, establishing a shared vision of education, and facilitating a change in educators’ roles are initial steps. To accomplish a change in thinking, educators must examine their own personal mastery and mental models of education.

 

Origin and Etymology of educate

Middle English, to rear, from Latin educatus, past participle of educare to rear, educate, from educere to lead forth — more at educe

 

Origin and Etymology of educe

Latin educere to draw out, from e- + ducere to lead

 

Origin and Etymology of exist

The Latin word sistere, meaning “to stand,” “to appear,” “to stop,” or “to put,” gives us the root sist. Words from the Latin sistere have something to do with standing, appearing, stopping, or putting. To assist, or help, is to stand by someone in order to give aid. To consist is to be made up of a number of things put together. To exist, or have actual being, is to appear real. To persist is to refuse to stop doing or saying something.

My definitions:

Educate – to draw forth out of one’s own mind; then to train one’s self towards completeness or wholeness

Exist – to stand forth out of wholeness consciousness

 

Wholeness consciousness from first page of my blog

 

Wholeness is the state where we contain all consciousness — consciousness for any action, thought, or energy flow (emotion or feeling). While we might not express the consciousness in any individual manner, we know it is within us. These “potentials” are the patterns which are aspects of spirit (life).

Ownership- One of humankind’s biggest mistakes

Ownership- One of humankind’s biggest mistakes

In my opinion there is only one thing any human can even remotely say that they own – their own body; and even that may just be a short term lease.

Gen 2:7-8 The LORD God took a handful of soil and made a man. God breathed life into the man, and the man started breathing. The LORD made a garden in a place called Eden, which was in the east, and he put the man there… Gen 2:15  The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it.

Psa 24:1 The world and all that is in it belong to the LORD; the earth and all who live on it are his.

Maybe we should treasure the earth(along with all who live on it) to take care of it and look after it like it is the LORD’s property.

Psa 46:10 Be still and know that I am God! The Hebrew Be still literally means to slacken; one commentary says to release your white knuckled grip on things.

Mat 6:25 “For this reason I say to you*, stop being anxious [about] your* life, what you* shall eat and what you* shall drink, nor [about] your* body, what you* shall wear. Life is more [than] the nourishment, and the body [more than] the clothing, IS IT NOT?

Luk 12:15 Then He said to them, “Be watching out for and be guarding yourselves against covetous desire [or, greed], because not in the abounding of his possessions is his life [fig., a person’s life does not consist of the abundance of his possessions].”

A lot of times I have heard people say “I want to get ahead.”

You want to get ahead of what or whom? When I ask them this question they look at me like I am crazy!

Words have meaning; they are a picture into our soul.

Ahead  adverb (IN FRONT)

  1. Directly in front:

She only had a few things in her shopping cart, so I told her she could go ahead of me in the checkout line.

​2. Ahead also means further along in development or achievement:

Sophie is way ahead of the rest of her class.

So I collect things; when I have a big collection I will be somebody. My collection needs to be bigger than anyone else’s; then I am ahead of them.

I will be directly in front.

Mar 10:44  and whoever of you may will to become first, he shall be servant of all;

Oh no; collecting things doesn’t seem to be the “Christian” life.

Marginal Living

Marginal Living

First of all is small fry expectancy. We really don’t expect enough of ourselves. We coast through life not living deliberately. The life within us wants to race on and we pull back hard on the reins.

Let’s look at a watermelon seed which when planted yields a watermelon; a 200,000 times expansion. A watermelon plant may yield several watermelons. Life is meant to be lived yielding great things.

In the following allegories the word heavens means rising, expansion, or elevation

Mat 13:31-32  Another allegory He set before them, saying: “The kingdom of the heavens is like a grain of mustard [or, a mustard seed], which having taken, a person sowed in his field, which indeed is smaller than all the seeds, but when it is grown is largest of the vegetables. And it becomes a tree, with the result that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.”

Mat 13:33  Another allegory He spoke to them: “The kingdom of the heavens is like leaven [or, yeast], which a woman having taken hid in three sata [about 36 quarts or 40 liters] of wheat flour, until which [time the] whole was leavened [or, was risen].”

Mat 13:44  “Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like treasure hid in the field, which a person having found hid, and as a result of his joy, he goes, and all, as much as he has, he sells, and buys that field.

Mat 13:45-46  “Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like a person, a merchant, seeking precious pearls, who having found one very valuable pearl, having gone away, has sold all, as much as he has, and bought it.

Mar 9:23  So Jesus said to him, “If you are able to believe [or, to have faith]-all [things are] possible to the one believing [or, having faith]!”

Luk 17:21 neither will they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For listen! The kingdom of God is within [or, among] you*.”

Where do you get the pattern for what you want to become?

You get the pattern from outside of yourself and say “here is the ‘new’ me.”  Then after a short while you say “is that all there is?” You are trying to live someone else’s dream.

You get the pattern from inside of yourself and you say “here is the ‘real’ me.” Then you say “this is more like it!” You are living your dream.

You cannot really conceive (birth-express) something that is not a part of your consciousness. When Jesus said “all [things are] possible to the one believing” he didn’t mean that a non-musical person could become a world class concert musician. He meant that all things that are part of your consciousness are possible.

Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Ode to William H. Channing

The horseman serves the horse,

The neat-herd serves the neat,

The merchant serves the purse,

The eater serves his meat;

‘Tis the day of the chattel,

Web to weave, and corn to grind,

Things are in the saddle,

And ride mankind.

 

Make sure your pattern for living comes from inside of yourself and that it is a part of your consciousness; then make something happen instead of just letting it happen.

 

It is time for you to take the saddle and loosen the reins!
