    The Three Principles Discussion Thread

    "The Three Principles point towards a pre-existing logic that explains the human experience. A renaissance of the mind based on universal constants (principles) that uncover our innate or natural resilience, wellbeing and humanity."

    This topic has been discussed in a few threads over the last several days, in particular in the ARMY thread. A dedicated thread will make it more likely that we will be able to re-find links and ideas that are shared.

    A few places to start are:

    In one of his blog posts, Michael Neill wrote:
    When we try to get insights into our own lives, we inevitably get caught up in a web of our own psychology, beating ourselves up for our behavior on the one hand while desperately attempting to justify it on the other
    That describes what I was going through daily a couple years ago. I'm open to any ideas that enable people to get out of (and stay out of!) that hopeless web.

    I hope people take a look at some of the links and if interested, join the conversation .

    My head hurts with it all ...... may take a while to sink in.
    What I've read has stuck a chord with me somehow - but don't know why ?

    Hope there isn't an exam afterward

    I get the impression that we'll just need to muddle around with it. One thing that appeals to me is that there is no "right way" or "steps" - and certainly no exams !

    Kuya wrote this to Daisy, based on the 3Ps:


    Try and remember that you have over 60,000 thoughts a day, these thoughts come and go endlessly without bothering you ..... EXCEPT the thoughts that obsess you. These thoughts

    "I want a drink"
    "I need a drink"
    "I am going to fail"
    "I can't do this"
    Only keep returning BECAUSE you believe them and want them to stop. It is the 'try NOT thinking of a pink elephant' dilemma.
    You are now sober, it is NOT the chemical lure of the drug but the MENTAL mouse wheel that has you.

    The thought cannot get you, let it come in, go out, come in again. Know it has no power, none. Unless you connect it to "I will go buy and drink alcohol now" it is simply a thought, one of the 60,000 you have every day.

    Our very existence is ONLY thoughts, everyone creates their own reality with thought. Your happiness comes from inside NOT outside you. It is not IN the drink, it never was, you simply THOUGHT it was......but it was always coming from inside you.

    I can prove this for you.
    Did you ever drink and feel happy and have a great time, laugh, dance and end the night feeling fantastic?
    Did you ever have a terrible evening drinking, then arguing and crying?

    The alcohol was the same, yet your experience was completely opposite.......this is because everything you felt came from INSIDE you, always did, always will.

    That is what I love too NS. The fact that it is not something you "DO" or another "SHOULD" that we have to add to our millions of others but rather an awareness ...it is indefinable but strikes a massive chord within me. Very keen to learn more and I look forward to sharing the information that I come across.

    And one thing I will add. There are now a lot of on line coaches for 3Ps and whilst you might want to train later on I would really suggest we use this thread to share materials and exchange thoughts before anyone rushes to spend money.

    I have not spent any money on sites....only books. Read, read, listen to everything you can, get your mind trained in the concept but don't rush to have somebody try and 'teach' you what is already your wisdom.

    I want to train later....I have a passion to counsel young offenders using 3Ps but I am not going to rush into anything.

    Just adding this that I have just found... A woman working in the area I would like to....

    Actually Starty, soon you will realise that it is YOUR insights that are guiding you. We are so used to buying into the BS that others know better than us that the idea that WE know best and always did and always will is kind of scary.....but it is true.
