3 Births of the Human Spirit

3 Births of the Human Spirit

8th August 2016

C. G. Jung believes that we go through three births in our lifetime. The first is our physical birth, then the birth of our Ego, and then our spiritual birth. In accordance with that fact, we also undergo three phases of development in our life. In the first third of our lives, emphasis is on our bodily growth, in the middle phase of our lives our Ego grows, and the last third of our lives is the period of our internal development.

While at the first two births the most important thing is the maximum exploitation of the opportunities offered by the external world, in the third phase, however, the emphasis shifts on our internal development potentials. Unfortunately, the majority of people will never experience the spiritual birth, for various reasons. Let us examine the possible reasons for that, to find out what factors encourage or prevent spiritual birth in us.

The Evolutionary Purpose of the Ego

The Evolutionary Purpose of the Ego

4th August 2016

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest writer for Wake Up World

We live here on this Earth, in the world of individual “Selves”. We dwell in the empire of seven billion separate and isolated Egos, and in the domain of the Ego we tend to forget about the Miracle of Consciousness. The Ego only pursues its own dreams and ambitions, and so it very often embitters our life.

We must face reality: there is a tyrannic “small ego” in everybody’s head, and this small ego keeps grumbling and complaining all the time. It is a dissatisfied, possessive ego that often makes our life a misery. It is for certain that this small ego – or, more precisely, what we believe is our Self, our Ego – coiled up tightly in the back of our mind, is responsible for a tremendous amount of senseless and unnecessary suffering and destruction in the history of mankind.

Lucid Dreaming as a Gateway to Spiritual Awakening

Lucid Dreaming as a Gateway to Spiritual Awakening

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Allow me to draw your attention to an apparently surprising thing. If I told you that now, when you are reading these lines, you are in fact asleep, you would certainly believe that I have gone mad.

You are awake, you are concentrating your attention to reading, and you are aware of your environment as well. You can see the furniture of your room, you can hear the call of the birds from the nearby forest. You are also aware of your thoughts and emotions. How can anyone claim that you are asleep at this very moment?

Naturally, you – just like everyone else – sleeps at night. Yes, sometimes you see dreams while you sleep, but right now it is daytime, you are awake. So how could you see dreams?

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Human Mind is a wonderful masterpiece that has immense potentials. Most of its potentials, however, remain unused in most people, since it is not us who are in charge of things, but our Mind takes control of us. In order to control something, we first need to know the thing concerned — so, we must know our Mind so as to be in charge of it.

What do we need to know about the mind? Here are 16 important things everyone needs to know about the workings of the human mind.

The True Revolution of Our Time is the Revolution of Consciousness

The True Revolution of Our Time is the Revolution of Consciousness

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

If we take a look at the events of our world, we will easily realize that we live in revolutionary times. The revolution of our days is, however, entirely different from any other revolutions in human history.

This revolution is not launched in order to rearrange the domain of forms and shapes, so as to replace old and outdated forms and shapes with new, dynamic and vivid ones. This revolution is able to take humanity beyond forms and shapes. The revolution of our time is the revolution of the Consciousness.

10 Forgotten Spiritual Truths About Raising Children

10 Forgotten Spiritual Truths About Raising Children

By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

In our life most of us have experienced one or two mysterious encounters, when visitors come to us from the unknown. These special guests are in fact our own children. We love them, and we are happy that they are here, but most of us do not accept them the way we should. They do not receive from us the deep respect and awe that wanderers who come from the depths of the Universe duly deserve. Instead, we look upon our children as if they were our own property, and we try to condition them to become adults we will be able to be proud of.

Are we really good hosts for these visitors, is this really the way we should receive our guests? Continue Reading – 10 Forgotten Spiritual Truths About Raising Children

Where is Your Soul on the Path of Spiritual Evolution?

Where is Your Soul on the Path of Spiritual Evolution?

By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

There are three transformational processes within the evolution of the Consciousness. These are, in fact, three levels of development. At these different levels of development the state and functions of the Counsciousness show entirely different signs. If we are aware of these characteristic signs, we may easily recognize what state of development of the Consciousness we are in: ordinary Consciousness, awakening or the level of complete freedom.

The Level of Ordinary Consciousness

This is the lowest level of the evolutional process of the Consciousness. Ordinary Consciousness is rooted in, and feeds on, past times. The present moment is less important for it, it is only a gateway leading to a future we long for. Future is nothing but an improved and beautified version of the past, a future in which we will be successful in the all the things in which we have failed in the past. For ordinary consciousness, only past and future exist, it lives in those and feeds on those.

What It Means To Control The Mind

What It Means To Control The Mind

28th October 2015

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The human mind is a wonderful masterpiece that has immense potential. Most of the potential, however, remains unused with most people, since it is not us who is in charge of things — it is our mind that is in control. Our Mind is rushing through life with us like a car running without a driver, causing us constant suffering and sorrow.

But if we were able to control our Mind, our life would change completely. This mad speeding would change into a beautiful, creative dance, giving us happiness, instead of pain.

The question is, therefore, how are we able to take control over our Mind?

5 Powerful Steps to Emotional Healing

5 Powerful Steps to Emotional Healing

by Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

In the course of our life, we have collected a number of emotional and psychological trauma in conflicts with other people. These emotional and psychological traumas are parts of our past, and they are often unconscious. Their effects in the present moment, however, are real: usually these emotional and psychological traumas are in the background of the fluctuation of our emotions, negative moods and – often apparently unexplainable – emotional outbursts. These moods may easily take control over our behavior, inveigling us into actions that we later regret or are ashamed of.

Is it possible to heal these emotional and psychological traumas, and if yes, how? We are able to cure the psychological traumas through a process of five steps…

The Age of Spiritual Awakening Has Really Begun – New Research Confirms

The Age of Spiritual Awakening Has Really Begun – New Research Confirms

By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D.

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

We live in the age of Awakening. More and more people are concerned about this: Who or what am I? Am I just the sum of my personal life story, memories, experiences, thoughts and sufferings? Or is there in me a hidden dimension of a mysterious consciousness, which is superimposed by the noise of my personal life stories?

The spiritual awakening refers to a person’s ability “to clearly see that what I perceive, experience, think or feel, is after all not the same as what I am.” As soon as a person recognizes who he or she is not, immediately comes the recognition of who he or she actually is: “The light of consciousness, in which perceptions, experiences, thoughts and emotions come and go. This consciousness in the background, is the deeper, real self.

Does Positive Thinking Free Us From the Matrix?

Does Positive Thinking Free Us From the Matrix?

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

On a bleak weekday of your spiritual journey you arrive home, full of stress and frustration, and open the mailbox. It is, as usual, full of advertising brochures. You are about to throw them all in the dustbin, but what you read on the cover of one of them raises your attention. You read the following:

Positive thinking makes you happy! Happy, because you can always look at yourself like you are looking at a miracle. Positive thinking is the magnet of happiness. If you think of something, you will start attracting it. If your thoughts are beautiful, you will attract beautiful things, whereas if you are looking at the world pessimistically, your whole life will be a tragedy. Change it, and you will be happy!

How Higher Levels Of Consciousness May Appear In Our Life

How Higher Levels Of Consciousness May Appear In Our Life

By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D.

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

When we are asked what we find the most important thing in our life, the most of us would be able to answer the question. We would, naturally, come up with different answers, but that is not the point; the point is that we are able to answer. But as long as we are able to answer, we remain detached from the higher levels of Consciousness. How is that possible?

The Nature of Higher Consciousness

If we wish to find out how that is possible, we must first examine the nature of higher Consciousness. A number of people have experienced those higher levels, and there are thousands of reports about that state of Consciousness.

Still, if we penetrate deep into that experience, we find that no higher levels of Consciousness exist, only Consciousness itself. That Consciousness has only two states that we are able to experience: one identified with various forms and shapes, and one that is free of forms and shapes.
