IDOLATORY BEHAVIOUR
IMG 0177 Our society has been so divided by the practice and unquestionable promotion
of idolatory behaviour in todays world. 
Most people have heard the 'all too easy' expression about needing to 
Love thy self.

This is all well and good, until we realise that unless we
actually possess,
mortgage free,
the self preserving esteem of
SELF LOVE.
Yes, until we actually accept & return to possess self love we are incapable of giving love to any one.

Obviously,
One cannot give that which
One does not possess.





Emotional awareness to self idolatory behaviour has forever been within nature and seems to be adopted and promoted by all aspects of life where material and social benefits can be achieved through attachment to idolisation of material wares and human endeavours.
Self possessed by,
"Things & stuff".

THE SPELL OF THE SENSUOUS
Australia from space

Following here is a review to another amazing piece of literature which further acknowledges the disconnection with our move away from our spiritual connection to our life source as story tellers of time progressively lost contact with language of the universal spirit of life as they become mind driven and separated from the inner being arguing over the source of the Chicken & the Egg. 

Goose bumps ran over my body as I was introduced to this "mind shearing" book by a guest who I met at a social gathering for the crew and staff of the Bondi Junction Massage & Float Centre where we also conduct our Counselling practice.

We say practice Counselling because these days we find that each and every client teaches us more about the vagaries, expanding evolutionionary development and interrelated universal connections to our air borne existence as mini micro human cells in the unlimited matrix of life. 

Yes in reality we most definitely have come quite a way from our ancestors when we start to consider the wisdom of those whose initial language development had an absolute & immediate connection to the life of our universal and earthly survival. 

Our work as Counsellors is about reconnecting people to the children they were born to be before they were cognitively led away to the never wilderness and left forever longing.
Left longing forever reaching out seeking  love wealth material possessions, big homes, fast cars, social status, multiple partners

Forever forgetting to see and appreciate the immediate surrounding air in which their body seeks and needs to live.

Todays society is very similar to fish when we realise that "The last thing fish discovers is water".

MASLOW'S HIERARCHY OF ESSENTIAL NEEDS
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

by Saul McLeod published 2007, updated 2014

Maslow wanted to understand what motivates people. He believed that people possess a set of motivation systems unrelated to rewards or unconscious desires.
Maslow (1943) stated that people are motivated to achieve certain needs. When one need is fulfilled a person seeks to fulfil the next one, and so on.
The earliest and most widespread version of Maslow's (1943, 1954) hierarchy of needs includes five motivational needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs five stage pyramid.

This five stage model can be divided into basic (or deficiency) needs (e.g. physiological, safety, love, and esteem)
And growth needs (self-actualization).

The deficiency, or basic needs are said to motivate people when they are unmet.
Also, the need to fulfil such needs will become stronger the longer the duration they are denied.
For example, the longer a person goes without food the more hungry they will become.

One must satisfy lower level basic needs before progressing on to meet higher level growth needs.
Once these needs have been reasonably satisfied, one may be able to reach the highest level called self-actualization.

Maslow Spirit 
    1) Physiological:hunger, thirst, bodily comforts, etc.;
    2) Safety/security: out of danger;
    3) Belongingness and Love: affiliate with others, be accepted; and
  4) Esteem: to achieve, be competent, gain approval and recognition.

    Maslow later differentiated the growth need of self-actualization.
Specifically identifying two of the first growth needs as part of the more generallevel of self-actualization (Maslow & Lowery, 1998)
Second one beyond the general level that focused on growth beyond that oriented towards self (Maslow, 1971).
They are:
   
      5) Cognitive: to know, to understand, and explore;
      6) Aesthetic: symmetry, order, and beauty;

BEING ENOUGH.... JUST AS YOU ARE.

Being Single;


Korro  Bella"Yes", she said. "I am happy."

However, directed by my own pre-conditioned, social expectations and ignorance I replied.

"But wouldn't you like to be in a relationship"?

She waited, took her time considering her reply,
then she gently prized open my pre-conditioned dysfunctional socially believed attitude by confidentially replying.

"Aren't I enough as I am"?



Fortunately one never stops learning even though, 
Many lessons are,
At first rather tough to accept.

MEDIATING WORK PLACE BULLYING
BF-AF532 INVEST G 20130809170457

AN ALTERNATE  ASPECT OF WORK PLACE BULLYING.


In recent years there has been good exposure and discussion about work place harassment and bullying which is certainly unacceptable and disturbing.
In writing this we must say that there are always two sides to any disagreement which generally are based on attitudes of right and wrong conduct where one party feels hurt or offended by the manner in which they are spoken to, spoken of, or spoken about, actually abused or in their mind mistreated.
Too often this alienation of personalities creates an emotional division where the offended individual believes they should resist that which to their belief is unacceptable behaviour.

Such resistance by the offended party is too often met by an increase in expectation by the offender to enforce their self righteous belief. 


WE END UP WITH LOCKED HORNS. 
Neither party being prepared to surrender their ground and all surrounding and associated employees become distracted by the swirling emotional tension radiating through out the work place.

This leads to further division and even arguments in the work force.
