“TheMetaView.com” looks at current issues from an enlightened perspective. Instead of asking common questions such as: What’s wrong? Who’s to blame? What do we do about it? The MetaView asks: What is the meaning of what is happening?** What is the issue? What is needed? What can we learn about what really works and what does not work? The MetaView perspective continually seeks healing through understanding.
The mission of the MetaView is to bring the ideas of Metapsychiatry to anyone interested in a more enlightened approach to understanding current events and to articulate some of the good ideas that have come out of Metapsychiatry as they apply to current global and cultural issues.
The MetaView comes directly from my studies of Metapsychiatry. Metapsychiatry is a spiritual teaching based on the work of Dr. Thomas Hora (1914-1995). More information on Metapsychiatry and Dr. Hora is available at www.pagl.org
The ideas expressed here on The MetaView blog are purely my digestion of Metapsychiatry, and are not endorsed by the PAGL Foundation, or by any other student of Metapsychiatry.
This blog is written for both students of Metapsychiatry, and others who may be interested in looking for healing approaches to current issues. All readers are invited to respond and ask questions.
**In Metapsychiatry a distinction is made between asking “why?” something is and asking “what is the meaning?” Asking “why” is looking for a cause and this leads to finding excuses and something/someone to blame.
Metapsychiatry suggests that it is more useful to ask “what is the meaning?” The “meaning” is the mental equivalent of an experience, symptom, or feeling. For example, to ask “why am I suffering,” leads to discovering some cause, but it does not offer a way out of suffering. To ask “what is the meaning of my suffering?” leads to the answer – “I want something, or I don’t want something.” If we recognize that suffering is the result of wanting something, there is a way out.
