What is Submerged?
Layers under Mental Models that I’ve noticed:
Meaning Making Systems: Kegan’s Theory of Adult Development shows a number of stages of Adult Development. The Self-Transforming order of mind is able to to think holistically, and come up with relational complex models like the above Waters of Systems change model.
Trauma: Different types and magnitudes of trauma can keep people at certain stages of development. Diverse healing modalities like The Circle Way, Reiki, Yoga, Tai Chi, Mindfulness and Meditation, any form of connecting with nature, our bodies, and fellow beings, and many more can help the healing, as well as spaciousness and slowing down in our lives, for those of us who are lucky enough to afford it. The end of the great acceleration, and the Slow Down may gradually help us to create more space and slower pace for this.
Intergenerational Polluted Karma and Trauma: On personal reflection, I’m starting to sense a “Karmic Trap”, made of polluted karma created by the actions of my ancestors, and passed down to me. This is what I am starting to attempt to escape from, as well as atone for.
