Behavioral Science and The Three Fundamentals

Thanks to the latest reports in Neuroscience, in the Neuroscience of Consciousness, and Physics, we now know that most of what we call “world” does not really exist. And it does not really exist because the world as we understand it, and as we’ve been taught, is not so at all. The world that we believe is real is simply self-created [1], and we’ve been creating it all along without realizing it.  The world is a product of our own creation, end of story. Fully understanding can be the most liberating piece of knowledge you possess. So, let us take a deeper look.

Ever get so much into a game that you get so upset, or cry, or argue, just because you are losing? Ever watch a movie and start crying, laughing, or get really scared? Ever yell at the actors to “run!” or “don’t open the closet!” Ever wake up from a dream and find that you are sweating, can barely breath, and felt like whatever the dream was about was really happening… All of this has to do with only one thing-Consciousness. In other words, “Are conscious are we?” is the question of du jour…

The only reason why most of us may not have the foggiest idea of the fact that we’ve been making up most of what we call “world,” is because of our state of awareness, also known as our level of consciousness. We don’t know what we don’t know. We don’t know that we don’t know what we don’t know. And we don’t know that we don’t know that we don’t know what we don’t know. This is what Albert Einstein meant when he said, “The human being experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.[2],” That, indeed, has been our main obstacle: Watching a game, being at a movie, waking from a dream, without knowing that they are not real, that we have created them, that we have imagined them, all.

For us to understand how we’ve been doing that, we ought to understand the 3 Fundamentals behind our biology and behind our psychology. These 3 Fundamentals are known as: 1. The Fundamental of Mind; 2. The Fundamental of Consciousness; and 3. The Fundamental of Thought. [3] 

The Fundamental of Mind is the projector, projecting films of thoughts (the Fundamental of Thought) unto the screen of our consciousness (the Fundamental of Consciousness). The detail of which films get shown, and when, they are shown, on the screen, is dependent upon what thoughts we are predominantly thinking at a given time. The screen, which is our consciousness, or awareness, is showing us the movie, but it is not showing us that we are in a movie, because it is not developed enough, it is still like that of a little child, who does not know that it is just a movie. That little child does not understand that even when she’s feeling scared, nothing is going to happen to her, because after all, it is just a movie.

Well, when our state of awareness is raised, we realize that there was nothing else behind our own personal movies to be scared of. But until then, we will continue participating in our own movie, scared, sad, depressed, on an emotional rollercoaster, confused, waiting for something out there, to come and rescue us, while growing cynical, realizing that this rescuer never comes.

Now what?:

Ask yourself the following question, “What is the next step”? Then just like you did for your last inquiry, pay attention, pay attention to your own mind. It’s been your own mind all along, and the moment you start to switch direction, it will follow you. This is how our brain works. In other words, inquiries or questions capture your attention. Your mind cannot ignore them. There are no questions that do not have answers. It is only us that is not recognizing the presence of the answer. So, let us pay attention, as we asked this question, so we can become aware of the answer, which will help us to:

  1. Fully experience the Truth about our own world, which we’ve been creating all along;
  2. Learn to no longer have to be afraid of our own experiences, of our own movie, of our own game; and
  3. Consciously choose to collectively start a new movie.  

Such a series of questions will make a great difference when it comes to behavioral modification.

  1. What do you see from reading all this?
  2. How does any of this apply to the behavior or habit you’re currently working on?
  3. How do you plan to implement any of this?    

We look forward to hearing from you.
