When it comes to enhancing the human experience, refinement is the name of the game.
Since each of us is ultimately the cause of the experiences we attract (or create) in life, to have better experiences, we have to become better. In other words, we have to improve ourselves.
We do this through the process of personal development.
And, since each of us is ultimately an individualized expression of universal consciousness, the process we’re really engaging in is the process of developing our individual state of consciousness.
Before we get into the process, let’s reacquaint ourselves with the definition of refine.
1 – Improve (something) by making small changes, in particular make (an idea, theory, or method) more subtle and accurate.
2 – Remove impurities or unwanted elements from (a substance), typically as part of an industrial process.
As individualized expressions of consciousness, each of us is ultimately an idea, or a collection of ideas.
The goal of personal development then is to remove ideas from our consciousness that weaken us, or make us less effective, and add ideas that make us stronger, or more effective.
Based on the definition above, the process looks like this:
Step 1 – Ask yourself what small changes you can make to your self-concept (or your state of consciousness) to improve yourself? In other words, how can you make yourself stronger and more resilient? Remember, you are a collection of ideas. So, identify what ideas you can adopt and develop within yourself that will make you more efficient and effective.
Once you’ve determined what ideas you can identify with that will accomplish this, start thinking of yourself as being this way. Work to embody these ideas 24/7/365. Over time, you’ll grow accustomed to thinking of yourself in this way. And eventually you’ll begin to translate these new ideas you’re developing within yourself into actions, which is the ultimate goal.
Step 2 – Ask yourself what impurities or unwanted elements you can remove from your self-concept (or your state of consciousness). Impurities usually take the form of limiting beliefs, fears, or doubts that hold you back and no longer serve you. These impurities in your thinking keep you from doing the things you came here to do. Things that are a natural expression of your true self, or higher self. Things other human beings need you to do for the race as a whole to improve.
So that’s the process for refining and reconditioning your consciousness.
