The other day, my long term collaborator, in the development of the Nemetics discipline, Michael Josefowicz remarked on Twitter –
“It is interesting that so many serious people have a blind spot for emotions.”
But how important is emotion in shaping our consciousness?
Let us examine the process of evolution or expansion of our embodied consciousness.
The starting premise of my argument is — every human being is a product of an infinite series of interactions, which are extremely diverse in nature.
In Nemetics we term each interaction as a “neme”
With every neme, a feeling is generated, which quickly takes the shape of an emotion. Emotion is very qualitative in nature since an emotion can have different shades, like for instance – love. But soon emotions give rise to objective thoughts which gradually develop. In turn, objective thoughts switch on our thinking mind.
A thinking mind will invariably generate desire. More the mind thinks, more it desires.
As soon as a desire is born it would seek actualization. Therefore all desires lead to actions.
Provided we are open and willing, we learn from every action the beneficial and detrimental results of good and bad actions to become wiser. Hence action through learning leads to wisdom.
When wisdom finally matures we become satisfied and perhaps happy with things as they are and as they happen. We deeply realize that any phenomenon would change owing to its dynamic nature that is time, space and constraint dependent. We further realize that there seems to be little point in forcing change things “our” way, finding solutions without a problem to address or invent new problems just for the sake of it or not to address the reality as it emerges.
Maturity then leads us to accept phenomenon as it happens and interact with systems and people just as needed to ensure or enhance flow, harmony and balance of life. In Nemetic terms the phrase for maturity is — “make it ezpz – The Nemetic Way.”
If we now summarize the process of enhancing our embodied consciousness; the train of our reasoning would appear something like this:
Neme -> Feelings/Emotions -> Thoughts -> Desires -> Actions -> Learning/Wisdom -> Ezpz Maturity.
The question I would leave the reader with — How do we make this process really ezpz?
