About Development, Values and Transitions

Thumbnail image for About Development, Values and Transitions

So, I think a lot about development. And I wrote several posts about development on this blog. It fascinates me how things move along a certain pattern. A pattern that might look very different from any other pattern, but what might be similar on a certain level. Most of those posts and most of my […]

Development of Perception

Thumbnail image for Development of Perception

The way we perceive the world is totally different from the way a young child perceives the world. I always understood that was the case, but I could never really imagine how that child would perceive the world. Or how that would develop into how we, as adults, view the world. David Bohm describes that […]

Creativity Grows on Insight and Understanding

Thumbnail image for Creativity Grows on Insight and Understanding

Creativity has an inherent order that grows on insight and understanding. It has to develop according to that. It might need rules and boundaries to keep growing in a certain direction. It might need ideas from others to grow even further … but … only after a certain amount of independent growth. Without interference from […]

In letter XXIV of his aesthetic letters, Schiller mentions three stages of development. He says there is a development that each individual, as well as the whole of humanity, has to go through. It is also a development that has to happen in a certain order. Each stage can be longer or shorter with each individual, […]

Between Instinctive and Moral Behavior

Lately I am fascinated by the concept of aesthetics. What exactly does it mean? Is it subjective or objective? How important is it? I already wrote about the view of Kant, Adorno and Bohm in the posts Beauty is Not Just in the Eye of the Beholder and The Worldview of Aesthetics. And that of […]

How to Confront Inner Conflict Instead of Ignoring it

Thumbnail image for How to Confront Inner Conflict Instead of Ignoring it

Sometimes David Bohm says so much with one sentence, that I feel the need to take it a bit apart. It is a line in the first chapter of the book On Creativity. He describes how the mind tries to avoid contradictions. It is often too confusing or painful to stay with a certain problem, […]

Basic Ground for the Meaning of Life

Thumbnail image for Basic Ground for the Meaning of Life

So creativity is something that can only arise from within. And every outside interference can block it. At least that is what research seems to suggest. But what does that mean? And what exactly do we mean by creativity? I think that, as I already wrote in the post Inner Drive or Navigation from Outside, […]

What is the Self?

Thumbnail image for What is the Self?

This week I found another interview with David Bohm. Somewhere in that interview he talks about why we need the space to develop creativity. He wrote about that in the book Science, Order and Creativity and I already have several posts about one chapter of that book. The chapter states that creativity is very important, […]

The Development of Creativity

Recently I wrote a post about the place of creativity in human development as a whole. In the post I also mentioned how I see the development of creativity itself. I wrote another post on that before, where I used my model of development to describe creativity in different forms (like dancing, painting, drama, architecture, […]

Describing Personal Development

Thumbnail image for Describing Personal Development

For some time now, I am trying to describe my view on human development. But so far I could not get it done in a way that made much sense. I really had a hard time finding the right words to say what I meant to say. I kept trying but until now, most of […]

Development, Evolution and Transformation

Thumbnail image for Development, Evolution and Transformation

Still discussing the transformation of consciousness, I suddenly realised something. Transformation is a word I tend to use a lot, but also a word like development. So what exactly is the difference and what is the resemblance. And also what is the difference of those two with evolution. First I will go and look up […]

12 Phases of Blogging

These are 12 phases a blogger might go through. It is a cycle for all development, so I thought why not for blogging. It is a cycle that can take a whole (blogging) lifetime, but it can also be something that you go through very fast, or only partly. For some the focus is very […]

More than One Spirit

Although spirit and soul are words that have all kinds of different meanings, I just have to use them here because I have no other way of describing the way I see the human development. So in the zodiac I use them for the fire signs (spirit) and the water signs (soul). In the post […]

Three Levels of the Mind

Thumbnail image for Three Levels of the Mind

The individual mind of the previous post Ignorance and Projection is different from the primordial and the universal mind. In the zodiac there are three basic levels. These levels are seen everywhere and in everything, but here it is used for the individual human development of the mind. ‘Primordial’  is used for the pre-individual phase […]

While I was still working on my website,  one day I suddenly started blogging. It was at the beginning of 2008 and I was following some bloggers who were discussing homeopathy with critics on their blogs. It was very heated at times, but also really very interesting.

Designing my Website

The first step I took to start creating my own webspace was by making a website, Homeopathicelements. Before that I was more of a reader on the web. Not just on the web, also of many books. But it was not always like that. When I was young I hardly ever read a book. And […]
