How to develop potential
Because of the complexity and fast pace of today’s world, we must re-think the way we look at business, society and even friend and family relationships. We must ask ourselves how we have lived and worked previously. We must ask ourselves what the better way to live and work going into the future will be. We must challenge ourselves to be open to a complete ‘re-think’.
The human brain is incredibly formable and modifiable – more than we ever thought possible. This means there is a much larger potential than we anticipated to face up to and then change the way we were educated or simply how we were brought up. Today we know, through numerous biological, bio-neuro-scientific and anthropological research studies, that we cannot deploy such potential on our own. We need other people – communities, teams, organisations or society – to assist us as we evolve.
It has been discovered that all the knowledge, the experiences, and the intelligence we ever discovered or were taught, showed, explained or had shared with us, is a profound matter collected from when we cooperate with others. This means, we would not even be able to talk or think if we were to ever depend solely on ourselves. We need others. We rely on others. It is what human beings are. Yes, our individuality is what makes us truly unique. And this ‘uniqueness’ that makes us so different, while being absolutely particular, is formed from a conglomeration of all that has been copied, borrowed and acquired from others: from our upbringing; and from third parties such as through our basic education, literature, philosophy, the arts, expertise, intelligence or the intellect from others.
That is why it is of critical importance to re-instate our own bonding and consciousness to achieve personal meaning and significance, so that we no longer carry on as mindless followers but rather eradicate our dependency on third party knowledge.
Nevertheless, it is crucially important to fully understand that if we are totally isolated and individualistic, we cannot actually exist. In other words, without others we are nothing and useless and unable to survive, even though, ironically, we experiment with ways to become more and more individualistic. We only operate our potential at its highest when we cooperate with others. It is that level of bonding that gives us meaning, which unfortunately today has become increasingly superficial and artificial. That is why the individual human being can’t exist nor operate nor comprehend problems nor generate solutions on his own: we can only flourish and be nourished within social relationship defined by cooperation and inclusiveness. All in all, we are connected through many kinds of systems: human, wildlife and ecology, as well as consciousness and the subconscious.
Still, many of us experience feelings of being separated and disconnected. We tend to live an individualistic life, formed mainly by our upbringing: where and when and under what circumstances we were raised, whether some were evolving within an indigenous, remote and secluded habitat or within an industrialised environment or surrounded by social, political, cultural or economic misery. All of this provides significant indications of how we were raised and what we were taught and trained to use our potential, why some of us enrich ourselves entirely through others and cultivate this as a common normality. Hence, much of our shaping comes from our environment: how we feel safe, secure, inspired, calm and eventually serene; how we protect ourselves; how we behave toward others who are not part of our circle of belonging, those who are different in terms of race, ethnicity, language, nationality, society, community, village, organisation, family or friendships.
It is socialisation that eventually dictates to us how we cultivate our own integration: in our social system; during what period of time and which country we were raised; and under what social, economic and political stability (or instability) we lived. More and more people are opening, comprehending that which the latest science of consciousness has explored, understanding that everything is energy and vibrations. Today acclaimed physicians acknowledge that tangible matter does not exist, because it is out of measurability. This means the intellect is the impulsive force, in fact is the real breakthrough of matter, not materialistic but intangible and more open.
Because we do not understand, we often don’t accept it exists. But this is a very limited, very restricted way of looking at life and matter. This would mean we ignore or abolish love, joy, imagination, creativity, anger, fear and anxiety – simply because we do not always understand these concepts.
Still, many people around the world do not want to accept nor understand that such social transformation will be needed in order to lead a meaningful, healthy life. This requires a serious ‘re-think’ and the strong willingness to ‘let go’. Many fail to associate with this because it is not tangible. But the truth of the matter is that we are intentionally confronted with new things, new trends, new ideas that are “en vogue”. So naturally we lose the sense of connection to comprehend ‘what is’.
Often, we forfeit exploring, discovering, striving to better comprehend. We are overwhelmed with the many choices and ideas we are confronted with, whether with diversity of products and services or the needs and wants we seek. Things quickly come and go and vanish, with something new already on the horizon. Not surprisingly, we lose the feelings of context and coherence and give up looking for solutions, give up trying to comprehend, because we are simply too overwhelmed with the complexity of ‘life’.
At the beginning there is energy, when structures were being built. So perhaps we need to ask ourselves, what is the sort of ‘matter’ that keeps everything together in our mind? Through research, it has been discovered that all living beings organise themselves so that their mental structure keeps them together with minimum level of energy. In other words, the brain is a lively organ that works to maintain its structure to survive, without expending too much energy. The more energy we use in our brain, the more we suffer and the more we lack concentration, clarity, critical thinking, problem-solving skills and even imagination.
This means the most desirable activity of the brain is not thinking, it is to contemplate peacefully, and to render a calm state. This is the best state for feeling safe and secure and serene, for being inspired.
