If you are really interested,
here is how that diagram evolved.
If you follow the links, you can find intermediate images
to see how the series evolved.
Mind Model series, version 1:
(Input/Output flow diagram)
which evolved into...
Mind Model series, version 2:
(Elaborated Input/Output flow diagram)
Explanation and videos of the Mind Model:
But some people had a visceral reaction to the above diagram,
something about the sharp edges.
I also wasn't happy how "needs" and "strategies" (from NVC)
were bolted-on. And I'm not really happy with the NVC concept
of Needs to begin with... which lead me to realize, NVC "needs" are
not really needs at all... they are concepts!
So I created this simplified diagram just about NVC, and tried for
a more organic look...
NVC (Nonviolent Communication) mind model:
Then, I started seeing various "mind-maps" posted around the internet.
They were not input-output flow charts, but a diagram of relationships,
with a central root. Which lead me to this:
Six Dimensions of Consciousness:
(Again experimenting with a more organic look, also abandoning the input-output flow chart, to a "Mind-Map"-style diagram, which shows the relationships between the different dimensions of consciousness)
Notice it looks like an eyeball! This is why I placed the I-Eye-Earth at the center of the diagram in the final version, which evolved into this:
I am very pleased with the final result.
I am happy to share this information.
I created these diagrams
FIRST to help me understand the connections with what I was learning,
in Yoga, Buddhism, NVC, Vedanta, ACIM, Law of Attraction, Ho'oponopono, Louise Hay healing model, and other metaphysical disciplines,
and SECOND to help others get free from their suffering.
I hope these diagrams and discussions help you :)
May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
