The Philosophy, Psychology and Psychotherapy of this web site moves beyond Behavioral Psychology by identifying, understanding and resolving the roots of problem behavior at their source rather than seeking behavior modification through the superimposing of a new pattern over the old.
So much of our behavior is habitual stuff, conditioned or learned behavior. We are conditioned from before our conception. We are conditioned in our mother’s womb. We are conditioned from our birth. We then learn our behavior without thinking. We have codes of conduct and behavior projected on us without even being aware that we are unconsciously performing to the expectations of others .. and reacting when our needs and expectations are not met.
Without even being aware of what is going on, we have been and we are, continuing to be unconsciously manipulated. We are supporting extras in a play of consciousness that has been written and directed by other people, society and the system. Mostly we are not the directors of that play.
Most of how we interrelate with others is a reaction .. as a consequence of deep ingrained unconscious and subconscious behavioral conditioning..
‘stuff’ that is laid on us.
Man has been reduced, in his own eyes, from 'the semblance of God' to a progressive Darwinian ape, with no better incentives than those that an ape has learned, to use his hands and to read and write.
Our view of Man and existence has disintegrated Life into a sequence of dissociated experiences. It is the common belief that Man has no destiny any more, nor even a fate. For most, the purpose of Life has been lost, and Man spends all of his time here on Earth killing himself trying to avoid death. He is in the victim of society, the system and the law of accidents which he has created.
Consequently, a system of conscious and unconscious beliefs has been developed which sees that:
We spend our lives killing ourselves in the pursuit
of a means of avoiding the death we fear most!
Transpersonal Psychology and Psychotherapy moves beyond Behavioral Psychology by identifying, understanding and resolving the roots of behavior problems at their source .. rather than seeking behavior modification or management through the superimposing of a new pattern over the old.
