believe that "only matter matters" and if you cannot "see" or "touch"
something it doesn't exist.

spirituality are not a dichotomy
(pair of opposites) but
complementary. Like day and night are complements of an existing
reality where both form a unity. Science itself was borrowed from
ancient spiritual studies in India and Egypt.
Scientific pursuit share a common objective: to comprehend the
intrinsic order and the mechanics of creation, thus
Spirituality and Science are directly and inextricably
intertwined. Both form a unity to explain the totality of existence.
psychiatry and psychology "solved" the whole problem of "human
nature" simply by dumping it into the classification of material
nature - body, brain, force. In doing so they avoided the problem
and precluded actual search for human nature.
caused mankind to deteriorate, to spend more money on drugs than on
food. More and more people depend upon drugs to relieve their
ailments, escape boredom and prop up their ability to face the day.
Even children now take drugs and million more are given
tranquilizers in the classroom.
This approach drove
man's attitudes about dealing with existence to the point where he
rubs a chemical agent on every part of his life.
It is in this
limited view of man that we find the source of what troubles man and
cast the longest shadows over his happiness and, indeed, his very
ability to survive and live well.
The wrongdoing and
failure of Psychology: Man is a 'soulless animal' theory.
I came from a
German professor in 1879, Wilhelm Wundt. Wundt advanced the theory
that man could be totally understood by studding material things
only. A trained psychologist, he arrived at the conclusion that
investigating the soul or spirit was a waste of time because a man
could be studied in the same way that a frog or a rat is studied.
refuted the dualistic idea that mind and matter were different. It
was simply a matter of brain cells, the theory went.
In spite of the
fact that Wundt never really proved any of his ideas, the school
of modern experimental psychology was born and its based of his
theories ever since.
The word psychology
means "study of the soul," but today psychologists proclaim that
there is no soul and study only animal behavior.
definition of psychology died with the unproven idea that an
individual's actions were simply a response to stimuli perceived by
the organism and were not related to any immaterial part of a
person. Ultimately, man was no more that a higher order of "soulless
animal." Therefore man could be easily controlled.
Psychology began to
amass data to support this view. One of Wundt's students, the
Russian professor Ivan Pavlov formulated his principles of mental
conditioning, best known for his demonstration that a dog will
salivate when the bell rings, if appropriately trained for food.
is not simply a response to stimuli perceived by human organism. As
a matter of fact it's not a response at all, but an spiritual -
immaterial - ability we all have to control and change our emotional
level. We are not dogs.
Positive Psychology, the new
approach of modern psychologist, is a good change. But, still,
psychologist maintain the basic principle that happiness can be
teached, that we can be trained to be happy. No new vision of
man's nature, other than Wundt's, is proposed here.
It's no wonder that
all present psychological theories have as its base this
materialistic view of man. If man could truly be understood in
purely physiological terms, then one could control them on purely
physical basis, much like moving a recalcitrant cow by prodding it
with a stick.
Do you really think
you are just like a cow?
This became the
"new" view of man and life. And it's the base of all psychology and
psychiatry today: all is material. Man and life rose spontaneously
from a sea of ammonia! An they, stubbornly, refuse to change their
Scientists, like Darwin,
William James, Sigmund Freud and many others have studied in detail our most
basic emotional processes and how they relate only to the brain, nervous
system, hormones, and internal organs.
Their findings are the base of all the knowledge psychology has today
about emotions in general, particularly the role of subcortical structures
such as the limbic system, hypothalamus, thalamus, basal ganglia, and
Joseph Ledoux, Ph.D., a well-known researcher
and author on the physiology of emotions, expressed the scientist’s
frustrations with the "elusive concept of happiness" when he wrote: “There
are many answers for what are emotions/happiness. Many of them are
surprisingly unclear and ill-defined.”

materialistic view of psychology provided man with numerous false
solutions to his problems. Man was placed in the position of being
materially rich, but spiritually and morally poor.
of Wundt's "man is a soulless animal" theory had disastrous
and widespread consequences in all areas of society.
idea that some peoples are genetically inferior to others and need
to be wiped out for the grater good of mankind is a lunacy created
and perpetuated to this day by the theories of psychiatry and
psychology! (Hitler and the
genocidal activity in the former Yugoslavia, euphemistically termed
"ethic cleansing" are two examples)
If this strikes you
as outrageous, it is!
Psychology consistently invented more and more mental illnesses
during the last fifty years, and the pharmaceutical industry has
been quick to jump on inventing the chemical "cures." The effects of
this drugs are more damaging than the illness itself!
It is not just
mental illness, however. all societal problems which existed before
the rise of this materialistic view, have drastically worsened
though the use of materialistic solutions.
This theories have
caused grow in our culture people who are chronically insecure,
dissatisfied and terribly inhibited with a constant feeling of
powerlessness and confusion. People who don't believe they wave the
ability to change their lives.
Psychologists have the stated goal of redefining the concepts of
right or wrong, of sane and insane, of ethical and unethical, to
suit their arrogant attitude that they are the ones best suited to
shape mankind's values and future.
When are they
going to accept new scientific discoveries about the nature of
universe and existence?
When are they going
to quit leaning just on Newtonian view describing the universe as a
machine composed only of material particles moving orderly in space
and time? (See:
psychologists simply and irresponsibly say: There is no proof we are
spiritual beings. Well, you are the scientists, you need proof, then
Find the proof! It took physicist more that 30 years of undeterred
effort to find "proof" of Albert Einsten's affirmation of the existence of
black holes in our Universe.
By the way, there is no
proof either that we are just "soulless animals," it's just an assumption
you guys have been working with on and on because some "authority" had said
so. Where is the proof?
Psychology has to give
us back our Heart and Soul.
When are they going
to give us back the heart, soul and consciousness of our being and
stop considering us just a bio-physical collection of interlocking
True science can
only be a process of understanding the world and ourselves, rather
than a fixed set of rules for all time, and with the ushering of new
discoveries, the old must better be discarded.
Psychology must do
a giant leap forward to catch up new and more advanced discoveries
about the nature of the universe and recognize, as physicists now
know well, that nothing in the universe exist as an actual "thing"
independently of our perception of it.
That every minute
of every day we are creating our world in a matrix of indivisible
interrelations of consciousness and energetic fields.

vibrating and indeterminate packets of energy that can not be
precisely quantified. And so are we all.
That electrons are

other particles instantaneously over any distance despite there
being no exchange of force or energy.
they consider themselves true scientists, must carry on their
exploration of the nature of man even if it takes them to places
they don't particularly want to go and remain open to new
perspectives and discoveries not quite in line with their fixed box
of ideas about who and what we humans are.
I hope they are
willing to do it.
They need to do it
because, so far, they have been unable to find the
purpose of life
