The Three Principles: A Lifestyle? - Sandy Krot

RSS Feed
Friday, November 23, 2012

A dear friend of mine, who has been sharing The Three Principles with the world since the late 1970’s, once taught me what a principle was – in scientific terms.  Since he graduated from Cal Tech with a degree in Applied Chemistry, I felt he had some credibility in this area.  My friend said that there were three criteria for something to be considered a principle.  A principle must be explanatory, predictive, and always true.  The Three Principles as discovered by Sydney Banks certainly meet all these criteria. 

Mind, Consciousness and Thought explain the source of our mental life and predict its consequences. The Principles predict how each of us acknowledges and responds to existence.  Mind is the energy of all things whether in form or formless.  Thought is always creating mental activity from within.  Consciousness is always allowing us to live in the feeling of our thinking.

To have scientific principles in the realm of human consciousness is game-changing. Unfortunately, because of innocent misunderstanding, I...

Three Universal Principles Explain the Thinking Process - Dr. Judy Sedgeman

RSS Feed
Friday, November 16, 2012

Three universal principles explain the thinking process: Mind, Consciousness and Thought.  Simply put, Mind is the energy of life -- the fact that we are alive. Thought is our ability to create forms or ideas from that energy. Consciousness is our ability to experience what we think as real. In other words, we are born thinking.  We think our way through life.  We see life through our thoughts as we go.  And the quality of our thinking -- how we see things moment-to-moment -- determines the quality of our lives. 

Awakening to those Three Principles sets people free from attachment to the contents of any particular thinking with the knowledge that thoughts naturally come and go. It frees people to see their state of mind, their felt response to perceived reality, as an indicator of the moment-to-moment quality of their thinking. A stressed or negative feeling state or state of mind produces a low mood and increasing tension, a feeling of insecurity, or dis-ease. That feeling warns us to allow our thinking to quiet. As people learn to trust their state of mind as a guide through life, they catch themselves earlier and...

Taming The Hurricanes That Run Through Our Mind – Lori Carpenos

RSS Feed
Friday, November 9, 2012

Hurricane Sandy recently ravaged the east coast of the US and devastated parts of New York and New Jersey. Last year, Hurricane Irene hit New England, where I live, very hard.  The impacts of both of these storms were really something. Power outages, fallen limbs and trees, wrecked autos, downed wires and all the devastation that can cause.

Try not taking a shower for 5 days sometime - even 3 would be a stretch for most of us. Try not having refrigerator service or air conditioning in August.  Try not having any heat on the Jersey shore in November. Try not having electric lights and not being able to flush your toilet. Now multiply that by 3 since most of these people had their children's needs to tend to as well.

I found myself reflecting about the physical devastation that can happen in an instant. It occurred to me that it is the same force, the same energy that blows through us, continually, in our own individual minds. The energy that powers weather is the same energy powering the constant movement of our lungs, the same energy causing our heart to beat. This force of energy has been called, the breath of life, the life force; it is known as...

The Principle of Thought and Athletics - Garret Kramer

RSS Feed
Friday, November 9, 2012

The missing link between the circumstances of an athlete’s life and his successful performances on the field can be found in the athlete’s thoughts. Those athletes who grasp that 100 percent of their sensory experiences are created via their own thinking will consistently thrive. Those athletes who attribute their sensory experiences to the world around them—their coach, teammates, opposing team, fans, contract, or home life—won’t.

Now I realize this might seem like a broad and even peculiar statement. But, just for the moment, be open to what I’m about to say: All human beings form their perceptions from the inside out. Our thoughts generate our feelings; our feelings generate our moods. If people don’t realize that this dynamic is always at work, they will have little choice but to attribute their emotions to their current circumstances. As an illustration, if a pro hockey player dislikes his coach, it will often appear that he has only two alternatives: request a trade or suffer. And why not? To him, it must be the coach who is thwarting his ability to perform. But the moment the player recognizes that his discontent is...

The Three Principles and Business Success - Dick Bozoian

RSS Feed
Friday, November 9, 2012

I worked in corporate America for almost 30 years.  During this time I stayed in one place but I experienced a number of “regime changes”. I watched as huge corporations bought and sold the company that I originally joined – which did about $1B in annual sales – several times.  The corporation grew bigger and bigger as a result of this process. At the time I left annual sales for the entire organization exceeded $40B annually.  We were a good high-tech company doing extremely high tech things.

I had introduced The Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought to the company and it had caught on big.  We were offering all types of Principle-based training and seminars to executive teams and working groups and we had a good executive mentoring and coaching program.

One day the new CEO of my part of the organization called me into his office to discuss our training program.  I asked the primary Principle-base practitioner who I had retained to work with us to join me.  The CEO asked us why his company was spending so much time and money on teaching these principles.  After a while he looked...

Feelings: Where Do They Really Come From? – Dicken Bettinger

RSS Feed
Tuesday, November 6, 2012

As students of The Three Principles of Thought, Consciousness, and Mind we are reminded of the fact that we are always living exclusively in a world of our own thinking.  We also learn that each and every thought we have creates a feeling.  All of us have moments when we don’t realize this fact and we mistakenly believe that something other than thought is creating our feelings.  We suffer from a common misunderstanding of believing our feeling comes from something other than thought.  Again, this is a misunderstanding.  We may believe that a deadline is causing us stress; the traffic is making us upset, our spouse is bothering us, or that the sun coming out is making us feel good.  As soon as we disconnect thought from feeling we begin to connect our feelings to something in the outside world.  And whatever we connect it to, e.g. the deadline, the traffic, our spouse, the weather, we will continue to do a lot of thinking about this perceived problem or issue or idea.  This kind of thinking often continues to generate even more preoccupation, stress, or upset.  And, as you will see, all of...

Finding Truth in the Weekend Paper - Mary Martin

RSS Feed
Saturday, September 15, 2012

This morning I was meandering through the newspaper in a semi-conscious weekend-morning state, waiting for my coffee to be ready. I was close to finishing the second section, wondering why I persist in this ritual every day when so many of the articles highlight everything that’s wrong, inadequate, hurtful, sad and scary in the world today. Then I came upon the Op-Ed page and a Colorado Voices piece by a man named John Walsh entitled “Sometimes, Colorado Purrs”. Hmmm - to read or not to read? I poured my coffee and sat back down where the paper was still open to this page, drawn to the byline that said Mr Walsh taught deaf and hard of hearing children in the public schools. I eased into the first paragraph, figuring I’d probably bail after a few sentences - but instead I kept being drawn into this little oasis of a piece of writing in which there was a captivating juxtaposition of beautiful imagery and petty human thoughts of annoyance. Walsh was complaining about other peoples’ pathetic driving habits in and a frustrating traffic obstruction one moment and then, in the next, about the actual obstruction -which happened to be a little kitten...

How to Talk to Kids about the Principles (without all the big words) - Erika Bugbee

RSS Feed
Saturday, September 15, 2012

Kids learn everything faster than we do, and learning about the way our thinking works seems to be no exception. Sometimes the biggest obstacle for parents in sharing the principles is that they think they have to use words like ‘principles’ and ‘consciousness.’ But just like us, kids live in their own thinking all day long too, and have plenty of moments when they’ve registered on the fact that it can be illusory and misleading, so they have their own first-hand experience and it doesn’t involve big academic terms. If we can have a conversation that’s human and down-to-earth, kids seem to appreciate someone connecting the dots. As a parent, I’ve found myself pointing to the invisible forces that are happening inside of us because there’s times when I know it will help my kids make sense of life when they’re having a hard time. I’ll give an example that happened a few days ago with my daughter.

Here’s the scenario: my 7-year-old got out of bed twice one night after I tucked her in – once to get a Band-aid for a hangnail, and once because she remembered she’d left her coat on the...
