Self Alchemy is Self Mastery is Self Actualization
is Self Empowerment is Self Power — Exploited
All of Life appears to us as developments compounding and morphing in a continuum. Each 24 hour cycle and our ‘stories’ validate this. We are always challenged by the opposites of each thing and the extremes or medians of each. With casual observation, we can see our entire Life and anatomy follows these principles as they are taught to us and confirmed by ourselves and our peers.
Linguistics, phonetics, morphologies of language become hidden codes or maps to our past and how we came to our cuurent stages of experiences.
Trust, where is it
This sacred map of language immerses with our experiences and stages of development. Trust becomes the primary issue for our new generations as they first appear to us. We have a sacred obligation to guide them the best ways we can.
Word deconstruction of “TRUST” – sounds like CHA + R + UST, or “cha-rust”. As a symbol or letters made phrase, it makes “T Rust”, implying a hidden meaning and value to the symbol “T”.
INFANCY – trust or mistrust
As an infant, two sets of nutruing may occur. consistent, predictable, and reliable care leads to the infant learning to trust others.
Infant care that is sparse, inconsistent, and unreliable, leads to fundamental mistrust in the world as a safe place for Self and others and that personal needs will always be a struggle.
TODDLER – skills, approvals, testing limits
Skills and abilities of the mind and body become known through actual experiences and study of others. The idea of being a separate Self from the parents becomes large in the young toddler mind.
The sense of approved, disapproved and outright rejections to test the landscape become part of lifes progressions. Supportive and engaged parents make all the difference at this stage. The difference in the new entiry feeling self powered or defending from the limits in the world.
Child 2.5/3 to 5 – independence, contexts, groups, inclusion/exclusion, pride/shame
This period opens new worlds. Children’s views and perspectives are appearing for the first time and being considered. Their brain adapts and their minds expand through experiences and coping with brand new expectations from school educational activities. The ability to absorb advances of new proposals, memes and knowledge causes creation of new skills in language, words, phonetics, reading, writing, basic nemerics and math, and independent analytical thinking.
Ages 6 to 12 – worthy/unworthy – industrious/superior versus lazy/inferior
At this period we learn what values are and where to place them according to directions from our parents/teachers and support/assurances from our peers and the media.
Social and emotional skills are added to the demands of life. We adapt and grow per circumstance and guidance, else we are left to our peers, the media and our devices.
