Philosophy is a system for relating all things from the smallest
(micro) to the largest (Macro). Its basic tenets are that all things
are not only related, they are macrocosmically one, and what is,
is perfect. Things are only separate and divisible from micro-limited
Philosophy envisions a microcosmic-Macrocosmic continnum (m-M continuum)
in which neutrons, protons, and electrons are indivisible parts
of ever larger physical bodies such as man. Continuing, we can perceive
man as an indivisible part of a third planet, called Earth. Again
enlarging our perspective, we can perceive this planet as an indivisible
part of a solar system which is, in turn, an indivisible part of
a galaxy, and so on...
feel pain and lonliness and experiences sickness and death to the
extent that he:
1. Feels separate and divided from self/others/universe/God (the
2. Denies the
perfection of what is.
3. Refuses to accept exclusive responsibility for all that he experiences.
does the feeling of separateness cause anxiety? Because anything
or anyone that we perceive as separate, foreign, or alien to us
is a potential threat - potentially anxiety-producing. To the degree
that we feel oneness or union with anything or anyone we can feel
comfortable, accepting and loving - the opposite of anxiety.
a Macro perspective, all human suffering, fear, hate, pain, and
disease are the result of lack of faith that all is one - all is
love- all is what you might call God. All is perfect.
doesn't mean that negative thoughts, feelings, and actions don't
exist. It points out that they are the products of unbalanced micro
thinking. All the great religions of the world have proclaimed that
"as you sow, so shall you reap." Macro Philosophy presents
this in terms of the consequences of negative and postive thought
patterns. If you are afraid that something will happen, it usually
does because that's what you've spent your thought energy on.
wise man in Proverbs 23:7, over 2,000 years ago stated that "As
a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."
Philosophy holds that a negative thought produces a negative feeling
and a negative experience, while a positive thought produces a positive
feeling and a positive experience. No thought is ever forgotten.
All our thoughts reside in our sebconscious mind (what the ancients
called the heart) where each negative thought continues to produce
negative feelings until it is balanced or cancelled by a positive
thought of equal intensity/strength.
thought produces anxieties (psychological pain) such as fear, anger,
frustration, guilt, depression, sadness, etc. We try to avoid negative
feelings by denying their existence, instead of recognizing that
we cause our own negative feelings by thinking negative thoughts.
