The map of the scale of consciousness as proposed by the late David R. Hawkins. It’s still considered conjecture by traditional science. Considering we have our own personal science in our path of discovery, shouldn’t main science be in employ to that? If we discover for ourselves that such a scale is true to our experience,…

Improving thinking

Self-directed application of thought can lead to a personal science. We’re not limited to our environment but it’s tempting to believe this on the fly. If we’re discovering new things about ourselves every day then how is it that we can quantify ourselves? Is it even close to a reliable estimate? Something anyone can do…

Conceptualization and Value

Here’s rough diamond, how will you chisel it? If someone gave you a road map and asked you to take a road trip, no-cost, where would you go? What nation would you start in? Would it be your home nation, or another continent? How about your favorite food? Will you get to eat your favorite food…

Personal growth? What’s that?

A fundamental application of this is regular and differing mental activity, so let’s go there.…

Thoughts and things pt. 2

Now we should let go of them in search of truth? How about the bit about trust, or belief systems? If we trust that something…

Thoughts and things pt. 1

Thoughts become things. A line from the movie The Secret.

Directions?

An example of the paths many of us follow can be seen in our ability to check the time on a digital device. We’ve even reached the point where it’s no longer necessary to know how to read an analog clock. There must be a lot of devices to make them this accessible, right? According…
