Summary - Master I - a new state of consciousness workbook

  • 1.1 Master I Goal Setting

  • Why is it important to set goals?
    By being specific you facilitate the process. Clarity and passion for a goal will motivate and command your attention.
  • What happens when you commit to a goal?
    To the degree you are committed to realize your goals, the chances are you will powerfully move into this direction. When you commit, something amazing begins to happen: providence -fate- lines up with your intention and commitment.
  • Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectivesness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creativity there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. 'All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of assistance, which no man could have dreamt would come this ways.'-- W.H. Murray
  • 1.3 Groundrules

  • What do ground rules provide for people?
    A context to become committed. Without boundaries and common rules one loses direction and is left randomly according to assumptions. Clarity of rules allows full and spontaneous participation.
  • Every society has a fixed set of rules called 'laws' and in order to develop consciousness and freedom one needs to have examined one's relationship to rules.
  • If constantly at war with rules a lot of energy is unconsciously spent in resistance, strategic planning and disaster management. These conditions ensnare us and keep us powerless to act effectively on our own behalf.
  • The paradox of rules: the choice to choose owning a given set of rules and therefore be on top of these rules and conditions.
  • What will be the benefit of owning the rules?
    The power and state of being available to you
  • 1.5 Awareness

  • The Book of Wisdom by Osho tells about Gurdijef and your greatest characteristic in which your ego rests. And then be constantly aware of it, because it can only exist if you are unaware. Don't move to the opposite, but stop in the middle. That's the miracle of awareness. 
  • What is the heart of Socratic or Platonic dialogue and what is the consequence to most thinking whether scientifical or dialy life?
    Dialectican inquiry by means of challenging one assumption after another. Thinking proceeds from assumptions (= hypothetical foundations on which all subsequent think is based). These tend to be the nature of e.g. universal statements, economic systems or religious creeds. With this we generally mean thinking, which is teherfore essentially a conditional system with unexamined foundations
  • What happens when we start questioning the ground of thinking?
    Then the movement if dialogue becomes truly alive and creative. Then the answer can come only from the question itself, which opens the way for insights, a perception not dependent on what previously has been known. This is direct seeing, also the heart of all holistic education.
  • What is an insight?
    The active principle of intelligence operation in any sphere of life. In essence it goes beyond the operation of the known
