The Essence of Being Human
What does it mean to be Human? Well if you reflect on your thoughts and behaviors and those of the individuals around you on this planet since the beginning of our existence here I think you will likely come to the conclusion that to wear the label Human is not exactly endearing or desirable.
The death and destruction that we have brought to ourselves, others and the environment is clearly evident. As you reflect on this how do you feel knowing that you also are one of those Humans? I suspect that some may wish they they could somehow disown their species.
Before you choose to give up on your species however I would like to suggest that your conclusions may need to be reassessed. It is possible that we have all been seduced into "thinking" that all this death and destruction is part of our true nature.
Of course, if it were, we would not be happy or satisfied with ourselves, would we? In fact wouldn't we feel trapped in something that none of us really desires? Isn't that the reason many of us have been on a spiritual path, to try to alter or change this sad state of affairs?
If you follow me so far I think you will recognize that inside each of us there is a Being that recognizes that there is something wrong with our current state. This Being has to have an awareness of what is good for us and what is not good for us.
It has to have a frame of reference from which it can assess whether we are where we want to be or not. If such a Being did not exist, we would not be able to discern whether the destructive behaviors we see emerging from our bodies were in fact destructive. Instead we would just feel it was natural to exhibit destuctive behaviors and therefore would have no desire to change something that feels natural. But it doesn't feel natural, does it?
You can readily feel this from the feelings of sadness or regret you experience after you have noticed yourself exhibiting a destructive behavior. So you see, something, or someone inside you is commenting on the destructive behavior through the language of feelings, namely the sadness or regret.
The behaviours are just that, behaviors. Where do they stem from? Well from the thoughts that we entertain in our minds. These in turn arise from the conditioning that we call our life history. This conditioning is stored as memories and beliefs in our minds and bodies.
In a recent article I wrote entitled "We Are Not Our Personalities" I discussed my experience with a new tool called the Mind Resonance Process(TM) and its ability to "dismantle" the persoanlity. In doing so what emerges is the Being I talked about earlier, The Being who "knows" and has always known what it means to be Human. That to be Human means not to identify with something that you are not i.e. what you call your thoughts, your memories, your behaviors, and your life history.

Creating A Winning Mindset
Do you know anyone who always wins? Sure you know that person, everything just works out for them. They go into business and they are an instant success. They enter the dating scene and their phone rings off the hook. If they were in the Olympics, you just know they wouldn't settle for anything less than the gold. It seems as though they always win.
Ever felt urged to steal a piece of bubblegum from the grocery store and given in? Then you are likely training to become either a kleptomaniac or an addictive compulsive thief. Do not despair ? you're not alone. Not a threat. And there is a way out.
Establishing Trust in Grief Management Groups
Trust is the basis of all human relationships. Trust can be thought of as a tool that can measure the positive and negative nature of a relationship. The more positive one feels about others in the group, the more likely they are to share feelings, thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Those persons who cannot trust others in the group at even a basis level will have great difficulty functioning in the group.
Behavioral Manifestations of Alzheimer?s Dementia
Alzheimer's Dementia has a combination of cognitive and behavioral manifestations. Cognitive impairment is the core problem which includes memory deficits and at least one of the following: aphasia or language problem, agnosia or problems with recognition, apraxia or motor activity problem, and impairment in executive functioning (e.g. planning, abstract reasoning, and organizing).
I. The Three Intuitions
We are all terminally ill. It is a matter of time before we all die. Aging and death remain almost as mysterious as ever. We feel awed and uncomfortable when we contemplate these twin afflictions. Indeed, the very word denoting illness contains its own best definition: dis-ease. A mental component of lack of well being must exist SUBJECTIVELY. The person must FEEL bad, must experience discomfiture for his condition to qualify as a disease. To this extent, we are justified in classifying all diseases as "spiritual" or "mental".
We are in the End Days; Oh, Really Now?
Some think the world is coming to an end, they cite signs in the Revelations and current world events. The world is not going to end, in all the written history and much of course which maybe somewhat a modified version of what actually happened nothing has ever been perfect and the doom and gloomers of those past periods too were out in fill force. Most of the history we read in the history text books is certainly taken out of perspective of the reality of the time shows us that nothing ever was fine and that what we have here is working and it appears to be working quite well in retrospect. We are in a better place than we have been in any of the written historical record. The World did not end then and it will not end this time.
Parapsychology: Maximizing Effectivity Of Targeted Controlled Remote Viewing Techniques
Individuals with a solid working knowledge of Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) have undoubtedly encountered the "plateaus" experienced at various levels throughout the ability's development.
Fallacies About the Inner Child
Over the past 10 years I have helped individuals who have been plagued by the memories of past events to permanently release the disruptive energy imprints of such memories from their energy bio-fields.
What Causes Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?
The most recent models that attempt to describe what is happening in the brains of people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder suggest that several areas of the brain may be affected by the disorder. They include the frontal lobes, the inhibitory mechanisms of the cortex, the limbic system, and the reticular activating system. Each of these areas of the brain is associated with various neurological functions.
Synchronized Swimming Advantage for Twins
The Olympic Contests for Synchronized Swimming are a testament to the natural human ability of telepathy. What we find in College and University Level synchronized swimmers thru observation and data of the top athletes is that those teams which have been long time friends seem to have a mind connection, which far surpasses generally accepted scientific knowledge. Those synchronized swimmers that are twins have even a greater advantage, as results show that twins are often some of the top performers in the sport. These observations are quite obvious and statistically too high to be coincidence.
An Easy Cure For Math Phobia
Why is it that one person enjoys math, while another person hates it?
Kids and Lifebooks: Tips for Social Workers
Every child who is adopted from foster care deserves a clear, detailed record of his or her life prior to adoption. While a foster child is waiting for a forever family, a lifebook can help her to make sense of the past and prepare to go forward.
Balancing Brain Lobes - Mutras
When does consciousness exist? Will the sentient robots being created with nanotechnology and the dumping of human memory such as was done to a computer chip by Stanford in 1999 have a soul of their own? I do not believe our soul is dumped in this process. But the issue of soul can be debated until the cows come home by observers of natural phenomena. Modern science has no greater insight than the ancient observers. In fact the ancients spent more time attuning with consciousness or soul in all things ? elemental and spiritual. Most nature worshippers are able to see an element of soul in rocks and trees and the recent fact that science provides about the white pine eating insects or the changing colour of leaves not being for the first frost add to the possibility as I see it. I love the saying of the Mayans ? 'Do not put your self in front of your SELF.'
Human Psychological Issues in the Recruitment of Suicide Bombers
Swedish Scientists did a study and found that young men with low intelligence scores were more likely to commit suicide.
Time Out of Mind
Let us first consider the role of time in our lives, then let us consider that role in terms of mental illness. Buddhists and Hindus, among others, propose that time does not actually exist. The Western world, however, with its dependence on clocks and deadlines, scoffs at such a notion, relying upon sayings such as "Time is money" and "Time is of the essence."
The Psychology of Torture
There is one place in which one's privacy, intimacy, integrity and inviolability are guaranteed - one's body, a unique temple and a familiar territory of sensa and personal history. The torturer invades, defiles and desecrates this shrine. He does so publicly, deliberately, repeatedly and, often, sadistically and sexually, with undisguised pleasure. Hence the all-pervasive, long-lasting, and, frequently, irreversible effects and outcomes of torture.
Subconscious Drives Make You Unhappy
Feelings and emotions are nerve impulses.
Christian Psychotherapy for Convicts?
Repeated research studies have revealed that secular efforts at rehabilitation have been unsuccessful in preventing recidivism. Not one of the various approaches to psychological counseling has been able to demonstrate success statistically in helping inmates rehabilitate. Among nearly 300,000 prisoners released in 15 states in 1994, 67.5% were re-arrested within 3-years. A study of 1983 releases estimated 62.5% (Langan and Levin, Bureau of Justice Statistics, June 2002).
Fairies and Mental Health
Schizophrenics hallucinate alternate realities. People who claim to have been abducted by aliens are accused of having Fantasy Prone Personalities. So what about those of us who claim to be conversing with angels, fairies, and spirit guides? Are we nuts? Absolutely yes! If we weren't crazy before we started chatting with the divine, we soon will be. Just the constant questioning of one's sanity can drive a person insane. How do you know if you're really talking to spirits or if you're losing your mind?
