Can You be Conscious and still believe completely in the logic of Psychology?

FriendWithFire (@FriendWithFire) 7 years, 5 months ago

A junior student and 23 years along my journey… I find it’s hard to study things like ‘ Psychology ‘ .. based on the definitions provided .. I find this ‘science’ contradicts itself many times over, and still refuses to prove anything… rather than encourage change, it facilitates structured paradigmatic thinking… I constantly felt like the laughing stock of my class for bringing up things like the ‘power of consciousness’ especially being a victim of Dr. Induced substance abuse and thought manipulation… I ended up switching my major to Communication…

What do you think about ‘ Psychology ‘ in relation to ‘Consciousness’

In my experience I think it’s counterproductive to relive trauma as much as a lot of psychotherapists encourage. Inner child work is necessary to learn how to manage defenses and to have honest intimacy with others, but defining yourself by your inner hurt child self is too emphasized. It’s really dangerous and I think counselors don’t keep people safe when they focus on it.

what is being said is understood.. The Church of Scientology if mind’s eye is correct, dabbles with this type of practice and is called ‘Dianetics’ … there is also a process .. ‘ Past-Life Regression ‘ that may be relevant… thanks!

Well, the science about it is (we are talking about Psychologie, so “most probably”) true, as it is scientifically proven. And those things are facts we are not really able to change if they were researched carefully. The problem is, how it is applied, there it gets problematic. We have only few, almost no research to all the “spiritual” stuff, actually the best material you can get is from all the old religions, especially Buddhism. But the science about it is right, and if science contradicts itself something is wrong about it.

Understood.. but scientific analysis has not yet been able to facilitate the concept of the ‘ Psych – e ‘ which is actually the ‘ Soul ‘ of an individual .. what would be the first step?

Probably doing research on highly spiritual people like buddhism monks, but it would be really hard to get them into some kind of a programm. Probably analysing their social behavior with other monks and “normal” people, and then starting to look for what makes the differneces. It will be easier to find it in people with high consciusness and who have really found their soal, as the “normal” people I would guess 95% of research is done on do not have this consciusness.

I see consciousness as a level of identity we should all be familiar with, as a foundation to bring along in life, and to sometimes retreat in. The mind -and therefor psychology- I see kind of as a shoebox of stuff, for consciousness to play with, which is not real essentially. Therefor if the awareness of consciousness as an identity is not present, we try to “fix” our lives by rumbling in the shoebox, while thinking it is all we have, and who we are. It’s an impossibility to feel complete, or even to really fix anything with in a sense our head in the box, not knowing there’s life and “overview” outside of it.
