Your attention directs your perception. Your attitude directs your behavior.
What is your attention? Or maybe better to say “awareness”? – It is your behavior.
So – what will you perceive?
We perceive that our attitude draws.
It is difficult new game to build own attitude.
It is common
- to get attitude from outside
- to learn and use “good&bad”, to judge,
- to get advice,
- to agree with somebody because of power, or love, or laziness,
- to expect, to desire, to indulge,
- etcetera, etcetera – you may see a lot, just observe yourself.
When we start to talk on language of Applied Qigong (The Different Functional States of Being), we ourselves decide what to say. Each word of this 16 words has own different attitude. Conversation on this language is like talking with world. We call what we want to perceive. It is not magic, it is to be realistic.
It is just technique as you choose from whole gamma of grimaces to use your smile and it changes brain chemistry and your mood moving from shitty feeling into laughing maybe.
Same way you choose the State of Being and you specify your perception.
You select from the library of your behavior patterns.
Hysteresis (Not to be confused with Hysteria) – the phenomenon in which the value of a physical property lags behind changes in the effect causing it, as for instance when magnetic induction lags behind the magnetizing force.
Quotation from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Hysteresis is the dependence of a system not only on its current environment but also on its past environment.
This dependence arises because the system can be in more than one internal state.
To predict its future development, either its internal state or its history must be known.
If a given input alternately increases and decreases, the output tends to form a loop as in the figure. However, loops may also occur because of a dynamic lag between input and output. Often, this effect is also referred to as hysteresis, or rate-dependent hysteresis. This effect disappears as the input changes more slowly, so many experts do not regard it as true hysteresis.
Hysteresis occurs in ferromagnetic materials and ferroelectric materials, as well as in the deformation of some materials (such as rubber bands and shape-memory alloys) in response to a varying force. In natural systems hysteresis is often associated with irreversible thermodynamic change. Many artificial systems are designed to have hysteresis: for example, in thermostats and Schmitt triggers, hysteresis is produced by positive feedback to avoid unwanted rapid switching.
We are walking by field of psychology.
What is the difference distinguishing between hysteresis and pendulum for our field?
Pendulum is rocking with depletion till stop. It is hopeless.
Hysteresis is the diagram of increasing human possibility to study. Everyone can use our knowledge about own self, about internal states (not events – it is critical to distinguish the events and personal states of being, when events occurred). We may consciously make the tail of hysteresis loop smaller.
We maintain container for personal energy. Usually when energy stays within human being it stuck as tensions of fleshy or emotional tissue or as endless loop of thoughts. When we recognize presence of Fire Flower within we can pump up fire energy to take advantage of it on occasion. The score of personal energy naturally grows. Here is one more trap of hysteresis.
The high score of energy stimulates personal activity, but in the habitual way, in the way of previous patterns. You have tried to change your life, you feel your shift, but your behavior is same as usual, and it drains your energy out. We all go through it, it is not your personal mistake, and it is law of hysteresis (or pendulum if you like it better).
Now (if want to self-regulate only) – we should exercise other loop.
