About a month ago, I made a new diagram outlining my thinking as an update of my conceptual framework. This diagram incorporates nearly all of the topics that I regularly mention in my blogs, and also shows the interconnectedness of these topics. I am pleased sharing it with you.
The left part of my diagram shows the Body and its Needs (eg, food, shelter, water and quite possibly communication too). This relates to all Life (forms).
The middle of my diagram shows our Mind and its Wants and Beliefs. Our Mind includes our thoughts, our words and our deeds. Deeds are the result of a triangle that I call Faith-Beliefs-Willpower. Our Mind is always somewhere in the 4 stages of Hope-Love-Doubt-Fear.
The right part of my diagram shows the Soul and its connection to Faith. Faith is the engine that keeps us running: (i) Faith drives Hope and Love (1 Corinthians 13:13), and (ii) Faith drives Beliefs and Willpower. Without Faith, the Dark Side will take over through our Doubts and Fears. Faith is the antidote against the Dark Side in our life.
