Cognition, Emotion and Motivation
G.I. Gurdjieff, (January 13, 1866 – October 29, 1949), was an Armenian – Greek mystic, a teacher of sacred dances and a Spiritual teacher. His work is called, “The Work,” and it is referred to as the fourth way.
I will take some of Gurdjieff’s teachings and update them using the Laws of Quantum Physics. This will be the main thrust of all spiritual writers and teachers for the next 2000 years, (Age of Aquariua.) I can only hope to just give stimulusupdate you a kick start so you may do the research and translations yourself. His sayings will be in quotes.
“Seek for a better quality of of being.”
Your being is who you really are. During any individual incarnation, the quality of your being will be colored by the choices you make. Seek ye first wisdom and understanding of Cosmic principles and you will make better choices.
“There are two kinds of Fear, instinctive fear which triggers adrenalin and causes you to attack or defend, and Emotional Fear caused by emotional imagination. Undirected imagination exerts an incalculable influence on sleeping (unconscious) humanity.”
The Laws of Quantum Physics tell us that thoughts are things. We know that whatever thoughts we continually have will volcanicashnew attract out of the Quantum Ocean it’s physical reality into our lives.
When you power your thoughts with your emotions, you speed up the process. The world we presently live in is polluted with imaginary desires, billboards, TV’s, radio, magazines, and newspapers. They all use imaginary images which are geared to invoke an emotional response within you to have “it.”
To become sane in this insane world you have to get control of your emotional nature and stop responding to every form of emotional stimulus sent to you to provoke your imagination.
The powerful black magicians of Atlantis whatarepretzels are all incarnated into the advertising world. They use black magic to induce you to do what they want and buy what they sell. Personal control of your emotions and imagination is your only defense.
“All this work is about making what lies in your being more and more conscious.”
Your being attracts your life. You have in your being many energies, ideas, thoughts and abstractions of others. They were put there by Mom, Dad, Teachers, Preachers, Ancestors and past life experiences.
It is your job to weed out from your being all that is detrimental to your spiritual growth. Always keep in mind that your zoomthenews purpose on Earth (which is a school house) is to grow, evolve, to individualize and to become more God-like. All else is secondary.
“You cannot change life which is a recurring cycle of events. But you can change your attitude toward them.”
Life is a series of recurring events that pass continuously on your screen of life. You cannot stop this stream. But you can pick and choose from which event you will accept and make a part of your being and which events you will reject and just let pass on by.
Your level of being creates your life. Want to change your life! Change your level of Being!
Ellis Peterson AKA Ragnar Storyteller is a retired math professor and electronics engineer. He has been studying astrology, runes, metaphysics and alternate healing treatments for over 30 years. He is 70+, in very good health and lives in the boonies of the Pocono mountains with his wife Lory. His writings are unique and refreshing.
After a promising start in the first quarter of 2012, capital markets became increasingly volatile in the second quarter, as Europe’s debt crisis escalated once again and weaker global economic activity caused investors to take a more cautious tone.
In the Eurozone, Greece and Spain were among the chief sources of investor concern. Worries that Greece, which continues to struggle to meet its debt obligations, might make a disorderly exit from the monetary union persisted until general elections provided some stability in mid-June. At the end of June, Eurozone leaders reached an agreement that included providing funds directly to struggling banks, rather than funneling it through member governments. The deal was seen as a very positive development, especially for Spain and its troubled banking system, and prompted a rally on global stock markets.
While the pace of growth in emerging economies continued to moderate, it remained relatively strong, with China’s economy growing at an estimated 7.5% annually. The Chinese central bank cut interest rates in the second quarter to ensure that this growth rate is sustained.
U.S. growth remained positive, but also slowed in the quarter. One explanation was that the unusually warm winter resulted in significant economic activity taking place earlier than normal – resulting in a stronger first quarter and a weaker second quarter than had been expected. Prices for commodities such as oil and copper dropped in response to the slowdown. The U.S. Federal Reserve, acknowledging the need for continued economic stimulus, extended its “Operation Twist” bond purchase program to the end of the calendar year. Canada also continued to experience modest economic and employment growth.
