Energy derived from personal images "of being" and of self-perception are explored within a context of their "dis-use", "mis-use", "mal-use". According to the Liquid Thinking Model, (LTM) energy or "Being Metaphor" when engaged in destruction becomes "Being Metaphor Shadow". The research-search asks: Are the two types of energies connected?; How are they connected?; Are they inter-changeable?; Can energy be re-perceptualized?
The Four Phases of Being in LTM can be understood and used primarily on a personal basis:
Phase I -Wonderment:!!:Liminality -open to wonder and awe, surprise
Phase II-Quest:??:Provocation -in search of; provoked to respond
Phase III- Active Database: Expertise; -self-creation/evolution, information-flux, field of expertise.........
Phase IV- Flux:Transformation - seer of blessing/grace -self-re-creation
Phase I/II Block: Childhood Maturity Block Active Subconscious: Backburner Functions
Phase III/IV Block: Adulthood Maturity Block Active Subconscious: Front Burner Functions
Phase II/IV - Response to Love Phase III/I - Response with Service
In LTM, thwarted potential refers to underdeveloped Phases. Actions arising out of the degree of Response-Ability developed by a person determines the maturity of spiritual competence. Responses that are not synchronized to the Four Phases Of Being, signify deficiencies in one or more pairs of Phases manifested by the Being Metaphor Shadow:
Phase I -insensitivity to others and consequences Phase II -avoidance of unpleasure Phase III -provocative wilfulness Phase IV -damaged self-esteem Phase I/III -self-centredness; narcissism Phase II/IV - hording; laziness
A person's energy, directed towards continual growth is renewed and replenished when life choices are in consultation with, or in Oscillation with the Phase I/IV Block. When human potential is blocked, distorted, corrupted, crushed, inhibited and therefore -Thwarted, human energy or Potential, becomes energy exercised in a closed system within the Phase II/III Block. For whatever reasons, a person who does not know how to replenish personal energy, is prevented from seeking it out, or refuses to access the ever-abundant gift of energy source, grace... a person directs personal energy on a preservative/defensive track:
1. "dis-use" - Phase II is underdeveloped; -Liminality is closed; wonderment is lost
2. "mis-use" -Phase III is underdeveloped; -Flux:Transformation not available; seer and visionary capacities nullified
3. "mal-use" -Phase II/III forces in circuitous resolutions -"need" is blind to the abundance of Phase I/IV for processing self's
Evil uses the same strategy: destruction The same sounds-words repetitive cycles To "change" makes the method impotent Therefore "freshness" and "surprise" Are disqualifiers unless they become tactics Used by who - when - where and how But never what Or the why drops out And there would be no grounds Harassment-terrorism Can only be effective If its reasons remain constant:
to destroy confuse, disrupt, interrupt, prevent, steal, vanquish kill.... the greed-need God-complex that can never be filled
Self-aggrandizement and control Egotism's blinding stanchions Circuitous habits of the non-loving:
Those who fear most Their self-destruction Cause and become Destruction's pawns Fulfilling their fear By making it real
And those who succumb to group evil Find themselves caught In the perpetual rite of repetition Ignoring creation's autopoeisis Refusing primordial instructions to listen: To discover "self" - gift of uniqueness Celebrating differentness through respect To let the abundance of multiform be known The self-revelation of being Shared in love and communion To create new unions.
The repetitive nature of evil-doing Is human intelligence "Being Amoral" Checks revitalizing energy into stalemate Sucks enthusiasm out of life for hate Surrenders self-creation Conscious choice in abdication Renouncing the gift of freedom Enslaved to the wrong.
2. Amoral Intelligence in its blindness does not see the newness of energy grace offers the oppressed the condemned to the margins the scattered, the shattered the ripped to shred humans - given the thunder of strength.
Lightening insight strikes those most drowned by heinous crimes the clarion of perception - how life is transitory temporal focuses reality and sees long-term eternal.
The crushing of the hardened shell opens the way for the seer seedling: reintegration of meaning.
