It's clear that people are made to evolve, I know that because of all the struggle we put into staying still, into keeping it safe , keeping some clearly defined standards and most important, because of the way we act in front of our "unsecure" future: heretically.
It is my belief, and is not necessarily right, that it is our human nature to complicate our life in order to make it simple. Why? Well, first of all, we do this up to the point where we see that it is no longer required. But what about before that? If we were to classify people by classes, intellectual and emotional , the upper middle , middle and lower classes will always feel the need to add obstacles in their lives consciously or unconsciously- in order to answer any questions that arise or are to be discovered, because this is life, a big Q&A with applied theory. Now, the reason for which one does this is because he is not ,yet, developed enough to be able to answer a question without 'touching' or 'seeing' it. His mental vision cannot conceive responding to something that is not palpable or practical, at that moment. So why exactly does one do it and the others don't? Because the lack of information. In order to determine an answer one needs viable, specific and hard information. This is gained by experience, by living and learning- the double 'L' theory- . The uppers have projected and predictive intelligence. It allows them to not require a question to give an answer and to answer a question without encountering the involved variables . It involves rationalizing all the information acquired throughout their lives into new information obtained only by thought and not by action; the others do it as well but at a very low level. This is the big difference; this is the main reason for people's regrets, bad feelings, sufferings and poor decision making. It is not their fault but merely their 'duty to take', meaning that they need to pass through all the classes to reach the top level. Long, hard, yes. Worth the time? Yes.
I was going to one of my business lectures and before it started I had a chance to have a rather short but interesting discussion with my lecturer. We weren't getting in because one of his colleagues was still teaching and forgot what the time was and so the conversation begun, based on this topic. We were debating whether or not this situation is a reason to become angry, upset or any other negative states of mind. 'The principle of Good Will', he said. I heard about it, I knew what he was talking about but what I didn't realize until the middle of our lecture was the importance it has , and how it affects our personal lives- being applied within our inner processes - , and how it affects everything globally company relations , negotiations, government laws
everything-. It was quite a shock for me, since I thought I had this 'covered' and that I know the relevance it has in and on life. Now, we learn something every day, and lots of times it's that what we learned the day before was wrong, and this was the case. It's much more important. How does this link to our initial topic? Simple, Good Will is at the very base of any decision we take in life, from going to the toilet to buying a very expensive car or investing in the market. It's everywhere. Who knows how to use it there is only one way- will gain steps on the big ladder we have to crawl on, will become a part of what I called 'the upper class' . How? How Good Will interacts with the capacity to rationalize and live a better life, not Zen, not Godly, but better in any aspect-. When facing a question, whether if it's asked by us or others, a conflict immediately appears between what we know and, well, the unknown the potential answers-. Managing this conflict using the 'Good Will principle' provides us with 'freedom of choice', meaning that now that there is no more conflict we are able to see what before was unreachable, as information. Now since we are in the possession of this 'deduced' data it
becomes much easier and clearer where to start, where to go with what we have and what we need, where to end it. So far so good, apply the principle and prosper. It's not easy, it's not hard either but it takes time, perseverance and strong will. The hardest obstacle one can encounter is himself . For an 'upper class' this seems like riding a bike, for the others it won't be that easy because it will be in conflict with their entire life, their whole group of life principles. How can one stick his hand in the fire if he was thought that it will burn him meaning that life has thought him that he will have a loss if good will is applied , but this only occurs because of bad understanding of consequences and bad management of information received- , or how can one talk about a movie that he has never seen meaning that because of his lack of encounter he is unable to give and use the data that would have emerged from that experience, this being the most common case-. For the first
case, it's all about the right moment, all about having that sparkle when the moment arises and understanding what needs to be understood. For the second case, a number of situations would have to happen in order for him to : receive the information, understand it, apply it once , see the feedback and repeat it based on the feedback, constantly improving his skills. There is much more to say about this but for now I feel it covered the basics of this theory.
The 'Good Will principle' is good for the 'upper middle' class, since they are the closest to the border and the farthest from the start. What about the others, are they doomed to eternal negativity? No, but they do have to travel a lot, work hard for themselves- and remain alive because eventually everyone will reach that point , even if it is when they are eight or eighty or, for those who believe, in another life.
Knowing this small, yet so important, lesson in life can bring so much good and all that is required of one is to be good. Is that so hard
