Today's Awareness Exercise -Awareness Exercise No. 43 10/30/2015 Admin 1133 views Self Focus For this session, look into a mirror and focus on asking your own image, and ask your mirrored self these questions, while insisting that s/he give you a straight answer. No need to tell anyone else at all. Just keep your Self therapy session between you and you. Notice how much time you spend every day, talking about people in the third person- those whom you know, know slightly, or don't actually know at all. Now ask yourself, "Why do I do this? What am I getting from this? Do I use this routine to "bond' with others who do the same thing? Is this learned behaviour? If so, who modelled it for me? If not, where is it coming from? Do I become a "we" holding "covert" discussions and evaluation sessions about third parties who "we" see as "not like us"? Is keeping myself convinced that those I talk ABOUT, don't know what I do, or who I really AM in relation to them, part of my own act? Now eventually, it might happen that you AND you in the mirror, might override the you OR you, which the pair of “you” present to others in external reality. THEN you will become a Monophrenic; saying what you mean, meaning what you say, and willing to work to clarify any meaning that seems ambiguous to others instead of trying to be mystifying, “hidden” and duplicitous. You will become able to do so with well defined boundaries and even become able to choose to stop comparing, explaining and living as though life itself was a contest that you had to try to "win." Monophrenia; -why if we all get THAT, we can also get Integrophenia! (that's the condition in which large groups of Monophrenics get together and enjoy it together WITHOUT losing their individual Monophrenic state in the process!) It is the "we are one AND we are many" state of Collective Being- Integrophenia. (Integrated healthy group mind)One Pointed ConsciousnessThe Big Bang Theory of creation- One Becomes Many.
