SEMIOTICS (explained) – Key words for the Thinking Level use Grammar & Number to express creative principles. We can tackle any problem asking the following Qs (the # order depends on what makes sense for any given situation):
POINT 9. Structure / vision (we start with the ‘big picture’): If the issue is about planning, drafting, solving or inventing a situation / new project, then –
ASK: What are its basic needs & what is their common denominator?
5. Judgment / norm, qualify (using the body’s extremities): Whatever the undertaking, activity or project, consider — head: how can I integrate the parts?
— left foot: what is my present stand? // right foot: what is my next step?
— left hand: what is my potential for acting? // right hand: what can I do?
ASK: Where is exact discernment and judgment required?
4. Imagining / desire, potential: If the issue is a matter of not being clear about your motivations & true wishes, then check if there is a need to center yourself, by correcting any imbalance in the four functions – Feeling, Sensing, Thinking, Willing.
ASK: What do I really want to do? How can I use my imagination?
7. Initiating / asset, individuate : If the issue is about wanting a major change in life, it may or may not entail a problem initiating (fighting for something). The underlying essence is not always obvious – sometimes considerable reflection & pondering is needed to discover the real question or difficulty.
ASK: Where can I get the initiative?
1. Healing / confidence, trust: If the problem is a matter of healing, then what’s the right attitude of your entire being towards life just now?
ASK: what healing / synthesis effect is needed or looked for, as a result of solving the issues / problem / project?
3. Evolution / archetype: (re.cognition, understanding) : If the issue is a matter of knowledge, of striving or change – check to see if you’re stuck, caught between opposites. The dialectic movement (two moments that negate each other) needs to be resolved before progress can be made.
ASK: What is my situation (past, thesis) vs. my aim (future, antithesis) & my method (present, synthesis) – which will allow me to change?
2. Creating / adaptation: If the issue a matter of creativity, is it between you & others, or Self & ego? Does the situation involve a limiting creative polarity, like you-me, creator-created, artist-painting?
ASK: What & where is my creative outlet?
8. Responsibility / create structure: If the issue is a problem with responsibility, the very nature of eight (structure) tells us that any complex situation we are in charge of – we do not have to act alone.
We can tune into our Inner & Higher powers, to act in harmony with heaven & earth.
ASK: What is my responsibility?
6. Stating / priorities, archetype (how any group action can succeed): If the problem is communication then we need to exactly identify & evaluate what’s needed to function.
ASK: What progress can the project bring, how can it further growth? What can our common aim be & how can we progress as a group? What plan or structure does this venture need in order to make sense?
ASK: What is my role in this common venture, & what have I mastered that I can contribute? What should my attitude be towards the others in the group? How should I communicate the project and solicit support from the community? (from chanceandchoice)
