Teachings for Life

The Paradigm

-Psychology: The study of the psychie, Psychie is another word for soul. Therefore, is the study of the soul. The soul is your natural way of being.

~A human being is born with a soul and a natural way of being in the world.  Their conditioning and early life experiences mix with their natural being and create strengths, weaknesses, and neurotic issues.  As an adult they must sort through what is their way of being and build the Self and strength to live from there.

~A human being has gifts and must develop their gifts and bring them to the world.

~There must be purposeful, meaningful work leading towards making the world a better place.

~A human being needs social connections at minimum and a Sangha or community ideally.

~There needs to be a well-functioning, but not overly relied on, ego functioning ability or there is too much anxiety for a person to live meaningfully.

~Everyone has the similar feelings, thoughts, and experiences.  People align themselves with certain aspects of themselves and believe that to be all of themself.  There needs to be the ability to see multiple thoughts, feelings, understandings of one’s self if a person is to be healthy.

~Our patterning and condition from our family of origin, our environments (i.e. schools, community, cities, culture, and country) is incredibly strong, powerful, and will be present throughout the lifetime but does not have to run the show.

~There must be the trust and faith and an understanding that there is something larger than the individual or a person becomes narcissistic (feeling they should be able to control themselves, their environments, and how others act and feeling) and/or incredibly overwhelmed.

~People must be able to truly experience and have successful stories of the development stages they have gone through in order to not feel like a failure or have anxiety.  This includes Erickson’s stages and Jungian’s Puer, Fool, Hero, Warrior, Lover, Green Man or Green Woman, Scholar, King or Queen, and Sage.

~Women need to start in Yin, the feminine, softness, sensitivity and move into strength. Men need to start in strength and move into softness and sensitivity in order for there to be mental health
