Waking up to your well of being - Bev Willcocks
Updated: Jun 17, 2022
Our understanding of life is constantly being upgraded. This is also true in the field of psychology. There is a powerful understanding being brought to the field of psychology that is challenging the old and upgrading the psychology instruction manual.
Sydney Banks was a Scottish welder who had a deeply spiritual awakening. What he saw is that “Mental health lies within the consciousness of all human beings, but it is shrouded and held prisoner by our own erroneous thoughts.
Traditional psychology looks at what is broken or wrong with us and then tries to help fix us.
The 3P understanding goes directly to the source, the power of the human spirit within us.
A power we are born with that can never be broken.
Our problems aren't that we need fixing. Our problems are the conditioned thoughts and habits that cloud our inner truth and wisdom.
In fact there is no problem, just a misunderstanding of how the mind works.
As an analogy. It is within the power of all humans to be able to float. If you don't know this you might avoid water or panic if you find yourself out of your depth and need rescuing. The freedom lies in knowing you were born with this innate capacity to float and that this capacity can be relied on and is the reason we can learn to float and swim.
The word 'psychology' has its root in 'psyche' meaning soul, mind or spirit. It's true meaning points to the 'logic of the soul'. Your inner well of being. Not the circumstances. When we connect with our inner being we find within us all the wisdom, capacity for insight, natural confidence and motivation to overcome our challenges, solve problems, form meaningful connections and create in the world.
This means that life comes at us from the inside-out, via thought in the moment. Not the other way around. We all know we have the capacity to change our minds. And as we do, we see life differently. Life no longer effects us in the same ways. We find the power within us to see life through a different lens. We see previously unseen opportunities, possibilities and find all the mental wellbeing we have been looking for.
When we understand the creative nature of thought and how it clouds our ability to see that we can float, we get caught up in the circumstances.
At the end of the day we are all looking for a nicer life. More kindness and the ability to bring our best selves forward with confidence and the ability to connect with others.
Waking up to the Three Principles provides a roadmap to finding that inner peace and the ability to bring your best self forward in your personal life, at work, in your relationships and out in the world.
