Three Principles for Intellectuals
A scientific exploration and discovery into the logic and workings of the Three Principles
Will learning about the logic and workings of the Three Principles do something for me?
We have a ton of understanding about how Thought works and take them to be true. Now that there is a logic because of having a paradigm for the Three Principles, we can now think about the Thought logically.
It may not look it, all our life experiences are based on only one thing - Thought. If we knew we had some illogic of how Thought works, then it is no wonder there have been times we struggled through life. Now that we have a logic, we can think with greater precision and accuracy at how we as individuals understand how Thought works. We become more free as a result of having something that never was logical in our understanding any more, like a fragment of our minds that is no longer there. This has the potential to give us a deeper foundation that is more insightful, helpful and practical, because we have less unneccessary thinking on our minds as we go through life. And that's very good news for all of us.
Did Sydney Banks change everything we thought about Thought?
We've been exploring the role of Thought for centuries, millenia even. Out of that, we have an enormous field of knowledge called Psychology. Within that field, there have been lots of well-intentioned ideas all designed to promote the wellbeing and mental health of individuals. Even individuals not involved in Psychology have come up with good ideas as well, often coming with a lovely feeling, particularly in the self-help field. We have accepted them as conventional wisdom, it's therefore no surprise that these ideas continue to be propagated today.
Until Sydney Banks came along.
He brought about a whole new comprehension of Thought that has absolutely nothing to do with any of the conventional wisdom about Thought, no matter how nice or good it is. None of us knew how to think about this new comprehension, even though a great many people benefited significantly from his teachings.
As we started to understand that there is indeed a paradigm for the Three Principles, it took our own psychological evolution further than we had ever envisioned. So much so, that we realized that the conventional wisdom of Thought were consistently were being thrown out of the window. That was when we knew learning about the Three Principles was a subject in its own right that cannot be merged or mixed with anything, because we now have the true foundation for all human experiences.
Until we are willing to explore what Sydney Banks shared with us in its own right, without any of the good ideas from Psychology and others, we will miss out on the gift and insight that Sydney Banks gave us to consider and think through.
Bringing in a Paradigm for the Three Principles
Having a paradigm is what gives us a way to think about any subject using logic. This increases the precision and rigor in which we think about any particular subject. The Three Principles are no exception. Having a logic allow us to be more precise and rigorous about the Three Principles.
Sydney Banks was emphatic in his teachings that there is a logic for the Three Principles. He said, "It's all logic, you're looking for logic."
There are a lot of good ideas within the field of the "Three Principles" that does not get questioned or subjected by the rigorous logic of the Three Principles. Hardly surprisingly, when "logic" is generally frowned upon, preferring a "positive feeling" instead. This means we lose the opportunity to see whether there is any logical basis for these good ideas, and innocently propagate these ideas on the basis of a positive feeling without knowing if they are sound or not.
As we subject our thinking about these ideas to the logic of the Three Principles, we start to see whether what we were thinking about is making sense or not because of this logic. It sorts out for us if these ideas belong to the Three Principles or not. This is where we can start to help oursleves and others in a more meaningful way.
Brett's experience of exploring the logic
My own experience of exploring the logic of the Three Principles has been a series of some profound life-changing paradigm-based insights that changed my entire realities. Some of these changes were too far unreasonable and unthinkable before experiencing them, it would have been too embarrasing, outrageous or ridiculous even, to assume it was possible or to think about.
Yet, exploring the logic of the Three Principles has benefitted my life immeasurably. My everyday life is much more pleasant to be a part of, much easier to connect with others and having lovely conversations with people from all walks of life. My work and impact as a consultant and speaker of the Three Principles have yielded results much sooner and made accessible to many more than ever before.
I continue to be surprised even today, and yet it’s these kind of explorations that seem to go furthest when it comes to personal effortless evolution.
Who is this membership for, and NOT for?
Generally speaking there are two directions in which to think about the Three Principles, therefore two kinds of groups.
The first group is the "what to do" group. They are those who want to feel a feeling they want to feel, or to not feel a feeling they don't want to feel. In either case, they have to "do something to achieve" the effect they are looking for.
The second group is the "what's going on" group. They are those who want to know what has happened or what is happening - therefore they are not interested in wanting or avoiding any particular feeling - there is literally "nothing to do to achieve" here. It becomes an exploration.
The beautiful thing about the second group above is that we are talking about what has happened or what is happening in this moment, so it takes us into the world of what’s going on rather than what to do. That is a huge shift in itself - the possibility of insightful territory becomes real without any mental effort or willpower. Now the person looking in this direction has a far more tangible possibility of insight, because we can now take into account of paradigms, rather than the angle of "what to do."
This membership is suited for the "what's going on" group, and not the "what to do" group.
Okay, I want to join! Please tell me how?
Because I want to ensure the conversation in the membership is logic-based and helpful for those in it, it is necessary for me to "screen" applicants prior to joining, not unlike a going through job applicants. This helps me to ensure the standard I want in the membership is maintained to the benefit of everyone in the membership. If this is still you, then you can register your interest by filling in a form at the bottom of the page. Please take your time to write a considered message. I will get back to you shortly after you have submited the form.
How much is it?
It's £40.00 GBP per month.
If you can't afford it, please let me know using the form below and we'll see if we can come to a suitable arrangement that's affordable for you.
What's included, and how often do we meet?
We will meet online twice a month, for between 60 to 75 minutes, depending on what happens in the meeting. There may be additional 'bonus' meeting if there is a hot topic that would be good for us to discuss.
All the meetings are recorded and housed in a secure area for you watch any time. You can also download the audio recording of the meetings as well.
I will also occasionally bring in a special guest who I know are extremely paradigmatic/logical in their teachings and have something very rich to share, and we can disseminate what we heard and benefit from.
When does this membership start?
We'll start in the first week of October 2019.
Lastly, why "intellectuals?"
The word Intellectual was derived from the word intelligence, and means that someone is intelligent. I thought, that's a nice description for the group - being intelligent about the logic of the Three Principles.
