Making the 21st Century the Century
of Mind and Mental Existence, Mental Development and Growth

 


Establishing the Necessary Internal Mental Conditions
for a Sustainable, Equitable, Secure and Peaceful Future

The Mind is too Valuable a Natural Resource to be Wasted,
and too Vital a Part of Life to be Ignored

 


Establishing the fundamentals and essentials for a sustainable, equitable, secure and peaceful future; understanding and managing human existence and development in an environmentally sustainable, socially equitable and individually secure and peaceful way. Understanding and managing human existence and development, conditions, demands and challenges, problems and difficulties, change and changing conditions, in a constantly changing and transforming world, within the natural parameters, the boundaries and limits of existence set by nature.

Providing the conceptual foundation, the framework of understanding and the mental faculties to understand and deal with the deeper-rooted problems, causes and developments that lie behind persisting and growing human individual, social and environmental problems, difficulties and crises we face and we create as a species globally today. Moreover, to understand the direction of the answers and solutions, and the steps towards a sustainable, equitable, secure and peaceful future.   Understanding and managing issues, conditions, demands and challenges, problems and difficulties, change and changing conditions in their essence, in a holistic way, a differentiated, but integrated, connected and related way, in depth and detail. That is, for environmentally sustainable, socially equitable and individually secure and peaceful development taking place together in an integrated, connected, related and interactive way.


Developing in the first instance the knowledge, the understanding and the mental faculties to understand and deal with the mind as the place where we consciously exist and act, where the inner mental life takes place and where the mental self is active. The place where by nature we are individually in charge and in control, where we must actively be engaged, and where we must take responsibility for everything we do and we engage in. Understand the mind as the place where we experience, become aware, and where we must consider the conditions of existence, our own mental and physical existence and development and the world around us, and how to deal with them. The place where we make choices and decisions, where we define goals and objectives, and where we must consider, plan, organize and manage our behaviour and actions. Understand and deal with the mind as the place where problems and difficulties, errors and mistakes in what we do and we engage in have their roots and beginnings, and where the answers and solutions must start. What takes place and what we do in the mind define and govern our behaviour and actions. They define and govern how we manage and conduct ourselves individually, how we relate and interact with each other, and how we deal with the world around us, with nature and the natural environment
.

Understand the nature, elements and processes, the conditions, needs, demands and challenges of the mind, the inner mental life and the mental self, and the role and responsibility in them that by nature are individually ours to understand and manage. Establishing and maintaining the necessary internal mental conditions – a sense of self, the human and the mental self, a sense of order and stability, clarity of mind and understanding, a sense of certainty, security and confidence, in everything we do and we engage in. Dealing in the mind with conditions, demands and challenges, problems and difficulties, change and changing conditions when only a minimum in mental work, effort and adjustment are required, and before they develop into larger problems, difficulties and crises, which we are no longer able to deal with alone.

Understand our mental needs and how to meet them, in non-material ways, in the mind, through individual mental work and effort. Understand our mental faculties, how to develop and use them. Developing our natural mental powers and abilities, translating them into the necessary mental skills and practices, and engaging in the required mental work and effort. Moreover, engaging in a process of continuous, life-long mental self-development and growth. Constantly, in light of change and changing conditions, reconsider, change, correct and improve the knowledge, the understanding and the mental faculties on which we rely, how we develop and use them. Reconsider, change, correct and improve, whenever necessary and required, in the face of problems and difficulties, failures, errors and mistakes in what we do and we engage in, the choices and decisions we make and how we make them, the goals and objectives we pursue and how we define them, and the behaviour and actions in which we engage and how we consider, plan, organize and manage them.
