Awakening – a conceptual framework (2)

On 22 May 2017, I published my blog Needs, Wants, Beliefs & Awakening. Back then I thought that an Awakening was another layer on top of my concept of Needs, Wants & Beliefs. I’ve been less sure ever since as something did not feel right. In my blog of 2 January 2019, I showed a “Great Filter” between Needs, Wants & Beliefs and Awakening.

In yesterday’s part 1 of this blog series, I have put a human Awakening in the middle of various (of my and other) concepts:
1. Body-Mind-Soul (my 2017 blog);
2. Needs-Wants-Beliefs;
3. Faith-Beliefs-Willpower;
4. Faith-Hope-Love (1 Corinthians 13:13).

I did not add my concept of Love, Knowledge & Power because this triangle outlines the composition of the 7 Belief systems, which is already a part of #2: Needs, Wants & Beliefs.

I think, feel and believe that a human Awakening requires and/or represents a comprehensive understanding of these four concepts. Hence, the song below: “Free your mind and the rest will follow”.

Much to my own surprise, the bottom of each triangle is linked to the bottom of the previous and next triangle. My subconscious did expect such connections but it was still a surprise visualizing these connections. Currently, I’m wondering whether these connections have “names” or can be labeled.

The top of the 4 triangles is connected to a human Awakening and in an almost supernatural way: Beliefs, Faith (2x) and Soul. In the Sumerian view, the spirit (eṭemmu) and the soul (zaqiqu) were separate “entities” and had separate roles and destinations (eg, Ancient).

I’m still not sure if there isn’t more to my diagram. This diagram might just show some cogs (ie, the triangles) in a wheel (ie, my diagram), which is part of an “engine“.
