Human Consciousness

Human Consciousness

Human consciousness is at the same time as being a form of awareness and sensitivity and also ignorance.

The ordinary everyday consciousness that we have leaves out more than it takes in.

And because of this, it leaves out things that are terribly important.

It leaves out things that would if we did know them, allay our anxieties and fears and horrors. And if we could extend our awareness you see to include those things that we leave out we would have a deep interior piece because we would all know the one thing that you mustn’t know… what is profound, what is mysterious, what is in the depths.

The Focus Matrix

The Focus Matrix

Focus is vastly misunderstood.

People only see it from a surface level and decided to leave it at that. Most people — especially those in the self-improvement space — see it as a once-in-a-while tool for deep work.

In reality, focus is the entirety of our lives.

You'd be surprised how much you can get done with 1 hour of uninterrupted focus.

The Three Pillars: Focus, Energy And Experience

The Three Pillars: Focus, Energy And Experience

Focus: Your vision, purpose, hierarchy of goals (mission), and priority actions are focus anchors. These “anchors” must be cultivated, refined, and revisited to give you consistent intrinsic energy.

Energy: You can expand, contract, narrow, or widen your focus on these specific entities to “tap in” to their level of energy. 

Experience: With accurate focus and an open energy channel, you conduct yourself from your direct conscious experience right now. That is, you anchor your focus to the present moment.

Negative Focus

Negative Focus

Focal contraction and expansion is how you live a life of meaning, enjoyment, and progress. It is an art form. No matter how “negative” the situation is to the untrained eye. All Is Mind.

Narrow, unconscious focus leads to stress, anxiety, reactivity, and annoyance.

When you find yourself projecting into the predictable future, it is easy to narrow your focus on a stressful upcoming situation and pull that future experience into your present experience.

Positive Focus

Positive Focus

Open, unconscious focus leads to feeling lost and overwhelmed with where your life is headed.

There are tasks, goals, and life outcomes that trigger thoughts, emotion, and experience unless caught by the watcher.

Conscious focus — both narrow and open — help us live with more depth, love and appreciation.

Infinite Consciousness

Infinite Consciousness

There is one thing that separates human beings the most from other species:

Depth of focus.

Expansion and contraction.

Expansion being a large area of attention.

Contraction being a small area of attention.

Like a circle that gets larger and smaller depending on what you are directly conscious of.

Focus is the most important skill that has flown under people’s noses.

It isn’t tangible. It isn’t material. It is near impossible to pinpoint the exact state of your focus. You can’t quantify it.

Most People Are Living Like Zombies

Most People Are Living Like Zombies

The majority of the human population are asleep. Living out pre-programmed unconscious lives. Habitual actions, thought patterns, emotional reactions, and decisions that result in their direct experience in this present moment.

Conscious living is another layer deeper. Through practice, you enjoy life in an entirely new dimension. You begin to see this world from another dimension.

What is stopping people from tapping in to this new dimension?

The Visible Part Of The Iceberg

The Visible Part Of The Iceberg

Think of a visible iceberg. Imagine that iceberg as anything you were to come in contact with in reality. Infinite icebergs that create the fabric of reality.

A thought, emotion, phone, glass, plant, computer, word, letter, design, social media profile, tattoo, keyboard, key, shirt, belt, button, room, cloud, chair, smell, or anything else you can become directly conscious of.

This is how most people conduct their lives. They see what they see (or feel what they feel) and forget the rest. There is no depth. There is no understanding. There is no awareness of the interdependence of life itself.

Dive Deeper: The Hidden Part Of The Iceberg

Dive Deeper: The Hidden Part Of The Iceberg

How do you dive deeper?

Through conscious attention and awareness.

Can you become aware of the EMF frequencies that your phone is emitting? I’m not asking you to see or feel them. I am asking you to become aware of them. Visualize them. Know that they are there. Let your curiosity take you on a learning spree. Understand how it impacts everything it touches.

Can you become aware of the coffee that is in your hands? What is the chemical composure of the coffee? Whose hands were involved in the manufacturing process of the coffee? What about the glass that it is held in?

Mastering Your Focus

Mastering Your Focus

You can separate the coffee from the glass, the molecules from the liquid, and as you expand and contract your focus — you become more or less aware of infinity.

Can you contract down to a valve in your heart, expand out to everything within your field of vision, and manipulate your focus to everything in between?

You navigate, appreciate, and thrive in life by mastering your focus.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
