Western medicine offers us the opportunity to have medical problems diagnosed and treated. Along with this, we are seeing many people consider the use of the traditional oriental medicine approach which incorporates the belief that, “Wellness is a state of balance between the spiritual, physical, and mental/emotional selves.”, and that an imbalance within any of these areas is the cause of illness. The philosophy is that energy becomes blocked, causing discomfort and sometimes moving into illness.
There has been more and more shift towards the care of the mind, body and soul through alternative and/or complementary services. In mental health the mind/body approach is used when you access neurobio feedback, guided imagery, and even cognitive behavioral therapeutic services. These modalities work with the mind and help the body and/or the emotional body heals. Massage has moved into the mainstream of our life and is often used to alleviate the stress in the body that we have taken on from our week. Yoga is another way to access the mind/body/and soul, allowing for the body to realign, the mind to quiet itself through the breath, and our soul to be heard through the quieting of the mind.
As we become more aware of the mind/body/soul connection, we realize that we have to take responsibility for incorporating those practices that allow us to have a balanced whole self. More people are searching and taking charge of making their life and their health what they want it to be.
The mission of Holistic Services is to create an atmosphere that enhances the natural balance of mind, body, and spirit. Holistic Awakenings utilizes an integrative approach of holistic counseling and Therapies to promote healing and wellness. These modalities can be used individually or together for a synergistic effect. These techniques aim to assist individuals in creating inner peace, gaining insight to help make positive changes, and to improve overall balance in one’s life.
INNATE SERVICE THINKING
We humans use our thinking capacity basically to meet three native drives: self-gratification, self-interest, and self-preservation. Because by nature our thinking is imperfect this can lead to problems. Our thinking is often prejudiced, unfair, and plainly wrong.
Flawed thinking causes trouble in our day-to-day life and also in more serious matters such as education, business, politics, diplomacy, communication, etc which touch the destinies of whole societies.
It is not enough to teach a man a speciality. Through it he may become a kind of useful machine but not a harmoniously developed personality. It is essential that the student acquire an understanding of and a lively feeling for values. He must acquire a vivid sense of the beautiful and of the morally good. Otherwise he – with his specialized knowledge – more closely resembles a well trained dog than a harmoniously developed person. He must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings in order to acquire a proper relationship to the individual fellow-men and to the community…Overemphasis on the competitive system and premature specialization on the ground of immediate usefulness kill the spirit on which all cultural life depends, specialized knowledge included. It is also vital to a valuable education that independent critical thinking be developed in the young human being, a development that is greatly jeopardized by overburdening him with too much and with too varied subjects. Overburdening necessarily leads to superficiality
“Critical thinking is thinking about your thinking while you’re thinking in order to make your thinking better to innate service”
Innate service transformation shaping humanity, and the role that an understanding of innate thinking can play in solving the challenges
Innate service thinking is, in short, self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking. It requires rigorous standards of excellence and innate command of their use. It entails effective communication and problem solving abilities and a commitment to overcome our native ego-centrism and sociocentrism.
The innate service habit of thought, if usual in society, will pervade its entire mores, because it is a way of taking up the problems of life. Men educated in it cannot be stampeded by stump orators … They are slow to believe. They can hold things as possible or probable in all degrees, without certainty and without pain. They can wait for evidence and weigh evidence, uninfluenced by the emphasis or confidence with which assertions are made on one side or the other. They can resist appeals to their dearest prejudices and all kinds of cajolery. Education in the critical faculty is the only education of which it can be truly said that it makes good citizens
But it has also less trivial consequences for serving, I believe. We need to get people to revisit what they have learned times and times again. We sure never assume that the people “got it” once and for all. After all, if you are a researcher, you must admit that you have revisited the same topics dozens of times. Often you are amazed at how shallow your understanding was when you first serviced something. And the trick that makes smarter is that you realize that you can just keep serving and serving forever. It is a powerful idea. So powerful, I could probably run late night innate service thinking with it.
If information is stored in this way then evolution is accelerated, explaining how complex motor skills, such as nest building and hunting skills, are acquired by a combination of innate service ability and learning over many generations..
