Global Sense uses a problem-solution model. I defined the world’s core problem as humanity’s lack of global consciousness. I identified the cause as our authority addiction and alpha male rule. I explored consequences of not dealing with the problem. Now I’m exploring the solutions of mindful self rule and personal democracy as our means of living in ways that make global sense.
In our daily lives, of course, neither decision-making nor problem-solving is clear-cut. Often we need to make choices on the fly, in the moment. A vehicle turns left directly in front of you. Do you veer around it or slam on the brakes? You have no time to research your options. In less than a heartbeat, you must make a choice that may save your life or kill you. Instinct takes over.
When we are blessed with time to solve a problem, our intellect is not the only avenue available to us. For example, try the technique called “Holding the question.” At night before sleeping and in the morning upon waking, contemplate the problem at hand and ask for a solution. Be open about how an answer comes to you, maybe in a dream, while taking a walk, or in the midst of a conversation.
Whenever problems face us, our knowledge, training, experience, instinct, intuition, and conscience all unite to help us make the best choices we can. In this way, the mind can be an ally for self rule.
