Trialistic harmony, not dualistic balance
We can do with Awareness Intelligence what artists do with three dimensions. It is a further breakthrough that comes with an awareness-enhanced mind that the elevation from dualistic thinking to a three-dimensional, tripartite coherent system of the intra-past, inter-present, and extra-future can be systematically enabled. Developing threefold socio-temporal awareness is securing one’s thinking — no more balancing between one and another view that requires crooks for not falling and hurting oneself. Like one can experience in climbing, only two points of contact expose to the danger of being left hanging by one hand or foot, and likely falling. To find the right compromise between only two opposites risks to end up in an imbalance or a mental respectively spiritual tumble. It would be much better to maintain a three-point mental anchor at all times.
If we could awareness-intelligently shift from balancing tension-laden dichotomies like ‘good and bad,’ and ‘we and them’ towards harmonizing the three perspectives of comprehensive awareness, a new world of cooperation would replace the unfairly capitalist-competitive one we live in most of the time. There is no single Awareness Intelligence mode more important than the others; all three should be securely held on to persistently. The harmony we can create with the three tenets of Awareness Intelligence is allowing the combination of simultaneous thought and, therefore, more sound mental multi-perspectives to produce clearer, fairer, and just rationales.
The challenge of finding maximal solutions and joy instead of satisficing based on uneasy compromises is to avoid dependencies between dualistic relationships.
Bi-partisan relationships are always transactional; neither side can live either with and without the other and, therefore, tends to amplify polarization. The same way a concord in music comes from a group of three notes sounded together pleasingly and satisfactorily, the concerted interplay of the threefold Awareness Intelligence, and consequently the body, mind, and spirit, create a state of being that is joyful and rewarding, harmonious in itself.
The power of a trialistic mind lies in its ability to access our whole consciousness that comprises of the full scope of human relations — ranging from intra-personal, inter-personal, to extra-personal relationships, and time — spanning from the time before the past, over the present, to the time after the future. Real estate is not real; it is just of the longer enduring type of material reconstructions, cultural artefacts that people do manufacture. All material is eroding over time, all forms and bodies are constantly changing, aging, and decomposing. What only is real is life itself that always takes new looks to express its diversity in unity. If we become aware of that fact, we’ve progressed from realistic thinking informed by exclusive and dividing beliefs of possibilities and impossibilities, to the next stage of human evolution: the triangular thinking of the inclusiveness of being attentive to the intra-past, doing the affection coming from the inter-present, and becoming the appreciation resolving from extra-future awareness.
The world often appears to be paradoxical. Paradoxes only exist in dualistic thinking though. That’s how we’ve been trained to see things.
In trialistic thinking, in contrast, a paradox would be just indicating an inner state of incomplete awareness. With the three valid relational parts of Awareness Intelligence instead of only two, there can’t be ambiguity.
Therefore, to re-establish harmony from a seemingly paradoxical constellation, the socio-temporal matrix can be recalled to either find the missing or new third element or to decompose and rearrange the dichotomic structure into the socio-temporal components of humantime.
When you experience meaninglessness, low motivation, and urges to give up, it is helpful to check the extra-future element and probe its awaring, for example, as follows. Ask yourself:
Am I creating in line with life, the life that continues in all human evolution beyond my family, my party, my nation, my race, etc., or do I identify with such social constructs on which can’t be hold on to in the perishable physical world? If it is the latter, feelings of meaninglessness could stem from such a misidentification.
One might feel that clearly when losing somebody close, when having lost a job, or being rejected from a social group. We have to die to our ego during a lifetime voluntarily, and as we shift from a socio-cultural group identity to a universally valid life-membership, we will have found our purpose of life as well. The ego cannot be overcome through disabling the mind. Selflessness is achieved through thinking awareness-intelligently about the egoless self, through non-transactionality in meeting others, and through a focus on a mutually beneficial future that is in all humanity’s interest.
