Identity: Who are you?

What a significant purpose of life: Life isn’t about learning to fit in somewhere; it is about creating somebody new.

Socio-cultural identities

Of course, you may want to stay social and cooperative with people in your life. However, with time, the nature of these relationships might transform as your awareness regenerates. Separation from yourself and others means, in a psycho-spiritual way, that you let go of your identity, which is based on social conformity and cultural beliefs that would be misbeliefs in a different culture. You also must let go of attachment to others’ judgments, which are opinions only and…


Painting LAKE ISLAND (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on wood panel, 80 x 80 cm)

A vacation with my daughter Natalie.

Is it a lake or island?

It can look the same, but not at the same time. Green, greensand, ochre, umber, blue, turquoise. Land and water, summer and winter. Compiling it all into one at once, that’s how I show you the world. I love you, child of the soul.

Is it the shore of a lake or the coast of an island?

The view towards the water. Watching the depths of the psyche. Both fascinating and frightening. Overcoming the fear of the hidden, that’s how I’d like you to understand the world. …


Field of the soul

It cannot be seen, and yet it can be made visible.
A tapestry, a matrix of combined dimensions.
And layers of consciousness, awareness.
Light and triangular roundness, everything else illusion and darkening.
Our duty to show it so that it is not forgotten.
When you are overwhelmed by reality that is ever passing quickly,
come back to the Eternal that grows in the field of the soul.

Painting A NEW SIGN (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 50 x 70 cm)

This painting is a suggestion for the symbol that could represent the novel term and concept of Awareness Intelligence™. It’s time for a new understanding of awareness, instead of maintaining old and incomplete notions of it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said more than a hundred years ago that history should be banned from school. I agree in the sense that the common issue of glorifying the past and using it to legitimate and reinforce established power structures, for example in politics, is hindering real improvement. The world needs new solutions to old problems. A spirit-based awareness to overcome ego-based identification is…


Painting PILL (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 60 x 90 cm)
  1. In the US, one in six persons currently takes a psychotropic drug. In Switzerland, around one in ten regularly consume prescribed antidepressants. This population is a minority; all the others manage to live without, and so can you.
  2. Modern psychopharmacology began in 1950 with the synthesis of chlorpromazine. Only from then on, the industry started to produce, patent, and market its invented/categorized types of diagnoses and related pills. Remember that before 1950 you most likely would have been considered mentally healthy.
  3. The psyche is more than the bio-mechanical brain, and only you know what’s in your soul (again, which is…

Painting LAND OF AWARIA (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm)

Life is proving us constantly that peace is possible to the extent human awareness is embracing it. Consequently, if all the world is scoped-in for ambitions of peace, a peaceful world indeed becomes attainable. An awaria can come through the dissolution of the illusion of separated and separating personal and societal identities, which would not be bounded together by life across times. It will be a future world in which all human beings are aware of their shared awareness of life. Thanks to intelligent awareness, the relational and temporal modes of life will be better understood, accepted as an essential…


NATURAL, NON-ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OF NATURE (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, each 30 x 40 cm)

NATURAL, NON-ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OF NATURE

There are lucrative business cases behind the emerging possibilities in new technology such as smart devices, the internet of everything, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. The intentions of the humans who are creating and utilizing technology are determining how technological progress will look like. What is clear is that technology follows the mindset of investors, developers, and users. How virtuously technology will serve humanity depends on how people grow in their awareness. Never will technology lead or replace the natural, non-artificial intelligence of nature (see also #awarenessintelligence) that is the direct expression of the life force itself. The appreciative study of the human mind, therefore, should be the absolute priority of all undertakings.

Painting THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE I — III (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, each 40 x 40 cm)

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE

Having learned English, French, and Japanese while living and working in different cultures, and as a global citizen, psychologist, and artist, languages (words, images, and the heart) are vital for me every day. Research into the psychology of language, or psycholinguistics, has helped better understand the mental aspects of language and speech with new and innovative implications on how we approach learning from a cognitive, emotional, and behavioral level.

Language organizes thoughts

You can perceive the world with your five senses and experience feelings and emotions without words. However, Ludwig Wittgenstein claimed that “the limits of…


Painting THE INNER EYE (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 180 cm)

THE INNER EYE

Is what we teach our children mutually beneficial for other children too? Is our teaching inclusive and useful to all humanity? Is it timeless? If so, these are awareness-intelligent lessons worth to be spread. Such shared insights would come from and support full human potential. Unfortunately, the propagation of obscured views is in vogue. It seems like blind people are leading blind people and nobody realizes the lack of sight. Possible, because “in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is a king,” as the proverb goes. In any case, many do feel that there is…


Painting THE SOCIO-TEMPORAL MATRIX (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm)

THE STRUCTURE AND DIMENSIONS OF LIFE

Often breakthrough findings are the simplest ones. If something can’t be explained easily, it is not well understood. If spirituality is advertised as requiring miraculous super-powers hold by few, it might be spiritual elitism that is not for all of us. An awareness-intelligent understanding of spirituality may be considered prosaic considering its modest level of mysticism involved, and yet it is whole and infinite, full of all the beauty and joy that life has to offer. Spirituality is simple and pure humaneness, it is the ultimate mental playground of human realization. …
