Seeking greatness is a fool's errand,
For greatness exists in all places. ✨
It is in the eyes of a beggar
in the glint and the glean
of stories left untold
from the nights alone in the Canadian cold.
It is in the sand castles of glass
shattered as the the waves pass
through the rooks and crannies
of impermanent perfection.
It is where children play
their minds alight with delight
at the sights and the sounds
of the great world that surrounds.
Greatness is everywhere.
Greatness is this poem.
Greatness is the home that you go to greet grace, it is within you.
Without you, greatness goes on,
for greatness exists in all places.
Greatness is truth
And your truth is great.
Einflüsse fließen meist völlig unbewusst und unkontrolliert in die Köpfe der Menschen.
Die Grafik visualisiert grundlegende Verbindungen, und stellt gleichzeitig dar dass klassische therapeutische Aufstellungsarbeit, nur eine subjektive Form ist und ganzheitlich nie an Ursachen für Probleme/Konflikte herankommt, da die Verbindungen ausserhalb der dargestellten Box nicht im nichts enden.
In der heutigen Zeit kann man für eine erfolgreiche konstruktive Analyse von hilfesuchenden Menschen mit ihren Problemen(Krankheiten und Störungen) jedoch den "Media-Mind-Feed" nicht mehr einfach weglassen. Er hat teilweise mehr Macht über ein Individuum als reale Menschen und soziale Beziehungen.
Daraus ergibt sich weiter dass der Mensch automatisierten kybernetischen Steuerungsmechanismen unterliegt.
Man kann also "normale" medienkonsumierende Menschen dadurch als hybride Einheiten (units/domains/...) bezeichnen, die je nach Intensität bereits von Maschinen (Computer) gesteuert werden wie Roboter.
In der klassischen Diagnostik(Psyhologie, Psychiatrie, Psychtherapie) werden diese Bereiche jedoch nicht beachtet. Sie tappen daher im Dunkeln und können so auch keinen ganzheitlichen Heilerfolg der Klienten bewirken. Ganz im Gegenteil, sie festigen Störungen aus anderen Motiven.
Die grafische Darstellung der Einbindung des Menschens in die Ebene der künstlichen Intelligenz wird der nächste post.

I still remember, when I took my first flight with mom, she told me "Don't you think god might be living somewhere here"
That moment is being recalled whenever I take a look out of the flight window. Somewhere in these fluffy clouds god must be living with angels... #Ohsnapmumbai@audiphotography#window#flight#philosophy
Jean-Luc Nancy at "Passagen Gespräch: Peter Engelmann & Jean-Luc Nancy", Volksbühne Berlin, 16.01.18. Nancy spoke on mutation as a figure of thought regarding the philosophy and practice of democracy. As a philosopher of difference, Nancy situates change, metamorphosis, and radical amendments to the texture of reality within the formal processes that order the social. This is the political, the transformational processes of technology, de-sacred recompositions of "power" as the fundamental elements of the realm of the social. #nancy#jeanlucnancy#philosophy#french#21stcentury#volksbühne#berlin#whitemen#men#mental#1strow#1rowseats#democracy#talk#event#reality

I don’t look to acting, as a career, to bring me happiness, or even ultimate fulfillment. I enjoy it immensely, yes, and no other work I’ve done engages me as a person on so many different levels. As hard and as unpredictable as it is, I don’t want to do anything else. But it’s really the means to an end.
For all its downfalls, pitfalls, and trust falls, I think that the entertainment industry has the power to change people, and to change the world. It is an expression of the conversations taking place in our society. It is a reflection of who we are, as well as who we could become. Many times, life and art imitate each other - sometimes in beautiful ways, and sometimes in disgusting ways. Nevertheless, film and television are far more than simply “entertainment” (although that is in part what they are, and legitimately so). They are narratives - about people, places, ideas, joys, fears, and questions that we all face. They are important stories that many of us would not know otherwise.
Acting is a personal endeavor, to be sure. I love the thrill of the chase, and I find it enriching to experience life through eyes other than my own. But my hope is that it grows steadily broader than that. I want to be part of an art that challenges our assumptions, fills us with empathy for others, and inspires hope that each of us has a part to play in the redemption of the world.

Energy update By Alex Myles
It seems like every highly sensitive person I know has been asking, “What on earth is happening with the crazy, intense energy right now?” I have heard people speaking about how they can’t sleep, feel irritated, are feeling an energetic “high,” or that their lives seem far more turbulent than usual over recent weeks.
The vibrational frequency of our planet is known to have been increasing at incredibly fast speed. As Earth’s frequency heightens our own personal energy, frequency is also being pulled upward, and although this will happen whether we are consciously or unconsciously aware of it, it will rise at a much faster speed if we work with it. As our vibration rises, we will each go through a personal transformation as we evolve and shed old ways of thinking, feeling, and believing—and as we expand our consciousness through becoming more intuitive, awakened, and enlightened.
Cosmically, everything happens in sequences, and we are currently in one of these sequences—known as a supermoon triad—due to three supermoons taking place in a row. The first supermoon occurred on December 3rd 2017, the second on January 1st 2018, and the third, which will be the completion of this two-month intense energetic supermoon portal, will take place on January 31st, 2018.
Unlike regular full moons, in which the energy lasts for a few days, the highly charged, intense, life-altering energy of this trio will be felt consistently from December’s supermoon until the supermoon at the end of January.
The gravitational and magnetic push and pull of a supermoon can feel like an immense energetic onslaught and causes us to feel emotionally fragile at times; however, if we do not allow the energy to overwhelm and overpower us, it can help us learn some of our most difficult life lessons.
Everything in the universe is connected through fractals of energy. We are particularly susceptible to energy during celestial activity, as an optimum amount of high-vibrational energy permeates planet Earth.
