Today I wish to write about gratitude ‐ about the sustaining, medicinal and transformative power of human gratitude as a conscious, spiritual activity. The conscious cultivation of gratitude is the 6 th condition, out of the 7 conditions 1 for spiritual development.
There must be, in each one of us, alongside the true human being that each one of us is, the ‘I’ – an invisible, powerful, ever present opposite, the ‘Anti‐I’. This ‘Anti‐I’ inside of everyone’s body and soul, I call the ‘Human Double’
Alongside the real human being in each one of us lives its opposite: the personal, inherent anti‐human. It is always there in us, the source for everything that we humans do which is inhuman on all levels: personal, social, professional, global.
This is part 3 of the series of articles about the human Double and is dedicated to the practical Psychophonetics processes of identifying, confronting, and transforming our Double into the strength of our own grounded individual spirit.
The beauty of people’s souls shines forth for me when they are looking passionately towards the rest of humanity, or at least some of humanity, or at least one other person – with love. Then they are becoming really visible for me. Then I can see who they really are. When they focus on their own pleasures they are animated and alive and very busy - but I cannot see their spirit shining forth. I cannot see them. I may want something from them, I may want something to give them, but I cannot really see their essential nature, as it does not shine. And then I lose my interest in growing forward and in travelling with them.
UA warning: this article is highly theoretical, intended for those who are interested in the theoretical background of Psychophonetics. Understanding the fundamental structure of the human constitution is like having a map for the journey of individual life. Most of us travel without a map, or we are drawing the map as we travel. But consciously or not – everyone has to develop some basic approach to the structure of the human constitution as the basis of their conduct, choices, relationships and parenthood.
