I think sometimes when people get caught up in a purely emperical world-view, they miss the big picture. They miss the point of it all. They try to find the objective truth of reality, independent of self, as if self is something that is completely separate from reality. Yet the scientific community themselves will say that we are the product of what we came from, evolutionarily speaking. We, then, work under the same fundamental principles reality works under. When you really delve in to the assumption that people who take the self aspect out of it, as if we are nothing, you see that it sounds more religious than a spiritual world view. They say that their world-views have nothing to do with reality, or truth. This is to make the assumption that our minds work in ways that defy natural law. This is simply not the case. Whatever it is that the universe functions through, our minds, and our evolution, works through too. This means that self-exploration is equally valid to emperical evidence. Our minds, who we are, are working under the same essential principles that all of reality is.
I'm So Grateful This Is
July 14, 2011, 7:41 am
I'm so grateful this is actually manifesting. Or I'm forming this thought pattern, breaking the experience down in terms of "individuals" and "circumstances." But who I truly am is infinity and eternity. I'm just remembeing an infinite amount of roles and reality's throught all of time and space. Perfect reality, cuz it's a direct manifestation of me.
It Will All Fit Into Place.
July 14, 2011, 5:28 am
It will all fit into place. Follow where your heart and dreams lead you every moment, if possible. Things will evolve as they are meant to and all kinds of opportunities will present themselves. I would be honored if you want to participate in any of the endeavors above. I know SiNeh at the website above would love to have your presence there, too, where he has built a wonderful resource that I will be making a lot of use of for research and educational purposes. As far as education, we will be throwing out the old model and creating something entirely new.
What I have found works divinely for me is to let things evolve. Economics are up in the air for a brief moment, but that will be changing (the country is about to go bankrupt) and while that may look like a negative thing, I believe that ultimately it will turn out to be the best thing that could possibly happen, however it ends up. The universe always provides. I do hope my own financial situation will turn around soon; when the time is right the resources will be there. Your ideas are always welcome. New methods of exchange will no doubt be developing. I have a hard time thinking outside the box for that one.
I expect us older folks have a LOT to learn from you young people. At the same time, I feel it is the reponsibility of the older ones to put forth immense effort to clean up this mess we have created in the world so that it is a beautiful planet for our children.
I have four children, two older ones, and two - a boy and a girl - close to your age - 18, 19 - and I have learned so much from them.
Wow This All Sounds Amazing!
July 14, 2011, 12:55 am
Wow this all sounds amazing! My dream is to be able to share my ideas, and be able to make a living from it. The connection I feel when I am able to fully express myself and be heard is incredible. I just want to start being heard at larger scales, as my self in the reality-grid. Crazy how everything is synching up so perfectly.
That's Wonderful! I Would
July 13, 2011, 5:02 pm
That's wonderful! I would love to learn more about it. Where do we begin?
It sounds like you have discovered applications for theory that exists but is not being applied at all in education. I have the theory and will be showing various ways to apply it in my dissertation. If you are interested in publishing your ideas, I have a journal. . . then, I could cite your work in my dissertation as creative examples of how to apply the theory. Just a thought and a beginning of getting the ideas out for people to apply and credit to people who come up with the creative methods.
Let me know if you are interested in that. I am working on the next issue now.
Here's the link to the free download for the first issue of the journal. I am working at getting multimedia contributions from all ages and backgrounds.
The featured author who has now passed away wrote his red book based on that theory. Reading the book literally takes the mind on a winding journey that can initiate an awakening. Somehow he managed to work magic in the way he combined an alternating negative/positive formula throughout the book.
My website is very incomplete - it will be evolving as more people get involved. I would love to offer book publishing opportunities as we move forward with it.
I would love to hear your ideas! Young people like you are going to be the ultimate key to the NEW Education, which is why I have stepped outside the education publishing matrix and started this journal and website for all voices.
Here's another website you might be interested in that is based on the same theory. It is called Blend of Loving Energies, and the BLOGS section offers readings and articles based on that same idea. It is also completely free and anyone can join and contribute. It is a treasure trove of information and new information is added daily. http://lovingenergies.spruz.com/
Thank You For The Discussion!
July 13, 2011, 7:17 am
Thank you for the discussion! I just recently got very interested in, and developed ideas, for unleashing our potential in a way that appears counter-intuitive to societal conditioning. It includes both polarity's of the "paradox," thus our power is unleashed and we can progress at any rate we would desire, out of a state of pure enjoyment. I really want to make changes in these things. I don't want to just theorize with some people. I want to make all this real.
The Journey,Yes, I Agree
July 13, 2011, 6:34 am
Yes, I agree completely - we need to transcend the notion of "systems-thinking." While it may be an advance from linear thinking (and I am still seeing this systems formulation everywhere in education from research to curricular development), it is almost as limiting as linear thinking.
After all, as the physics experiments have shown, just observing particles changes their behavior, it is crazy to think a researcher has no effect on what is being observed (the empirical/positivistic approach). We are evolving human BEings...and research must be approached in the same manner or it does not accurately represent human experience. This is the way I am approaching my research. It is very new - no one in education has accomplished it yet.
It would definitely unleash consciousness to approach learning, living, in the same way...and as you stated, unleash our potential. Exciting thoughts to consider. We must change education to incorporate these ideas - and the sooner, the better.
Thank you for the discussion!
We Believe Very Strongly In
July 13, 2011, 4:35 am
We believe very strongly in these structures, and therefore they are powerfully heard, which confuses us into believing them. When we get in touch with our selves, we stop giving undue power outside of ourselves. From here, the potential of our consciousness is unleashed. We gotta forget about these notions of "systems." The only systems that exist are the ones we believe in. Let's unleash our potential, as human BEINGS!
As The Saying
July 13, 2011, 3:06 am
As the saying goes, "you are preaching to the choir here." Very profound statements. Research, as so many other things will be changing in some big ways - and it will include "self-exploration," which as you rightly point out, is equally valid and for some types of research more valid than empirical research. It is the heart of my research for my dissertation. I would like to see the move away from the repulsive "gaze of the researcher." Elite social and education researchers have often done more harm than understanding.
