Behaviour and Motivation, Overcoming Stress and Anxiety
Fundamental reports relevant to today's problems and to a better future
Behaviour and Motivation
It is what one does not have that one wants, one works to achieve that which one needs.
Once basic needs are satisfied they cease to act as drives and are replaced by needs of a higher level. So that higher-level needs are predominant when lower-level needs are satisfied.
So that we can now look at the needs and wants people strive to achieve:
These then are the needs and wants people strive, indeed struggle, to satisfy and overcome. People will co-operate with each other and work hard and well to satisfy these needs and gain much satisfaction from doing so.
The Struggle for Independence and a Good Life
People are aware of their own position in the community, of the pecking order and of their place in it. Changes are noticed and felt. Indeed people are often intensely concerned about the threat of increasing differentials and about whether they are moving up or down, gaining or losing.
In other words, people strive to maintain and improve their position, in this way striving to receive their share of the increasing national income and wealth.
In addition people are both aware of and concerned about the large differences in the standard of living which exist between different countries. Their commitment to their own community depends on the style of management and on the success of the community, depends on the extent to which the community serves them and satisfies their needs. In other words, people will strive for the community to the extent to which they see it as satisfying their needs or as a means for satisfying their needs.
Now if you look again at the list of needs and wants then the one thing which stands out is that they are not special. This is what people need and want, this is what people are striving to achieve and nowadays this is what people could have. And yet all around we see people struggling at the different stages to achieve the next step.
That progress arises only as the result of struggle is expressed in many different ways. Consider it from the point of view of the workplace. No matter how paternal the company, the employees know that whatever they are getting arises from the self-interest of the employer and is likely to be the result of confrontation and of a balance between negotiating strengths. And yet commitment to the objectives of the owners and directors, for example a company's objectives, comes from the extent to which the company serves its employees, comes from the extent to which it helps them to achieve their needs and wants.
How come that all around us we see progress being achieved only as the result of struggle?
Subconscious Activities of the Mind
And people are listening to projected thoughts (hearing 'voices') which can have knowledge and skills beyond the receiver's comprehension, which can inform and guide as well as mislead. People may at times be listening to two voices speaking to each other.
And people may receive ideas visually when awake and by way of dreams which communicate primarily by images, and these are independent of language. Dreams also occasionally contain information beyond the experience, knowledge or understanding of the dreamer, and some people consider that dreams may be understood as messages sent to 'guide' or sent to 'destroy'.
So it appears that telepathic communications and telepathic manipulation of a person's speech and body movements, are established facts.
Further, we are able to communicate intentionally (that is 'consciously') with our autonomic nervous system and by visualising ask it to control body functions and to affect our body's immune system. Clinical trials have shown remarkable success in areas such as the treatment of cancer and heart disease. In other words, we can consciously modify the mind's subconscious control of body functions.
Which leads one to the logical deduction that physical symptoms and illnesses can be caused, and cured, telepathically.
Wishful Thinking and Persistent Thoughts
Wishful thinking can provide hope and motivate. What matters here also is whether one's thoughts are positive and constructive or the opposite. What matters are the principles by which one lives.
To believe in something is to accept the something without question, to accept it as being so regardless of reality, to accept it as being so on the authority of the source of the information because it is beyond one's understanding. Here again what matters is the content of one's beliefs, what matters are the principles by which one lives.
A persistent idea or thought may keep popping up in our mind. We may be tempted, feel the urge, to do something against our conscious wishes.
Among persistent thoughts and ideas are convictions that uncertain effects are real regardless of whether this is so. When convictions (say about beneficial effects of a particular food or about one's abilities or capabilities) override one's critical faculties, they begin to rule one's life, they take over. We are then, in effect, handing over control over what we do to the source of the conviction, to what may well be a telepathic source. Doing so to the extent to which our actions are determined by the conviction.
As long as one accepts that the effect appears possible or likely but could well be mistaken, one retains one's control over one's actions.
Body Movements, Mind Blanketing and Sleeping
Controlling another person's body movements is possible and taking place. Automatic writing is one example. Other examples are unintentional movements of limbs, unintentional sudden movements.
Which brings one to the more complex problem of accidents at home, while driving or at work, and so on. And there are unintentional movements of hands and limbs, for example when hitting a wrong key on a computer keyboard, which are not uncommon.
It appears that people can be both made to sleep and awakened by telepathy.
In one form of 'mental' illness the patient, at odd times, suddenly feels tired. He may, and sometimes does, suddenly fall asleep. Russian scientists have shown that people can be wakened up by a mental command, and also that one person can put another to sleep, and wake him up, using mental contact only. So it may well be that when some people suddenly fall asleep, apparently unable to keep themselves awake, that they are being affected and sent to sleep by a telepath, that this is a telepathic manipulation.
A similarly caused effect may be when one's attention wanders, when one misses some relevant part of what is being said or seen, just that bit which is the clue to meaning and understanding.
Countering Effects of Stress and Anxiety
It appears that hurt and pain, oppression and exploitation, suffering and hardship, can and should be transformed and countered by an applied sense of social responsibility, by a sense of common purpose and co-operation between people working together in teams, by a sense of, and by the satisfaction of, achievement in locating, countering and overcoming the source of the suffering.
