Utilizing the Trivium method of critical thinking within our personal relationships is the essence of the Unity Process. Without the willingness to work the process of “what, why, and how”, and in that order, it is not possible to blossom into unity from within. Knowledge answers “what” questions, understanding answers “why” questions, and wisdom is the synthesis of our “what” and “why” into our “how” questions/answers.
“What” questions/answers give us Self-knowledge of our current reality, while “why” questions/answers assist us in finding the truth; it is through refining both our “what” and “why” questions, and receiving their answers, that we are able to align our reality with the truth. Once our reality and the truth have been aligned, we can then proceed to act upon our “how” with wisdom; as it is the ability to utilize both our knowledge and understanding through our actions. If we jump into our “how” without first acquiring enough knowledge and understanding, and aligning them together, we are not making a wise choice.
“Speaking YOUR truth and aligning with THE truth are not the same thing, whereas YOUR truth is your knowledge of your reality, THE truth is the Divine Natural Laws that must be aligned with through understanding. It is imperative to align YOUR truth with THE truth, utilizing critical thinking skills and logical processing of your emotions, otherwise they will remain divergent and in conflict with one another. While everyone has their own truth, not everyone is aligned with the One truth.” ~Nathan & Aline
Throughout history, we have been programmed to align our “what” with a story and an image that was given to us outside-in, rather than the truth, which comes from within us. We then fabricate a shallow “why” to justify and support our “what“, which gives us the moral and egoic justifications to act out our “how“. This “how” outcome does not support the truth though, as it supports the image and lie that was given as the original “what” that started our process.
An image, which is an illusion (lie) meant to look like the truth, is conditioned into children as expectations of “how” life “should” look, feel, and operate; and these images are programmed into males and females in a way in that will promote conflict between them. This misuse of the Trivium process, as a means to control people from the outside-in, is how we have been conditioned and programmed as a world for the past 2100 years, it is the formula of mass mind control and servitude.
In the false version of the Trivium, also known as the Classical or Inverse Trivium, it’s not about the truth of “what” we feel in the moment, it is usually about “what”image we want to feel, and “why” we aren’t feeling it, which we usually blame on an external person or situation. In these cases, our “how” is to find somebody or something that can better match our expectation of “how” we think our image should be satisfied. Unfortunately though, this “how” is pre-programmed to be difficult to satisfy, as males and females were purposefully given opposing images to keep them separated and in conflict with each other; this separation was designed to make people easier to manipulate and control.
In essence, an image is a prepackaged “what” and “why” that is given to us through various media, schools, and other programming, and then we act out a “how” that corresponds to that particular image They give us their “what/why”, we act out a supporting “how”, they give us their “what/why”, we act out a supporting “how”, they give us their “what/why”, we act out a supporting “how”, and the pattern continues indefinitely, as we act out their wishes as programmed robots.
However, when the Trivium is used from the inside-out, it has the potential to break a person free from the sameness of the collective unconscious of humanity, and into conscious individuality. To use the Trivium correctly, we must be able to discover “what” our problem actually is, which is found by looking at “what” we are feeling in the present moment, no matter how painful that truth might be to the person we are expressing it to — especially if that person is ourselves.
Once we have aligned our “what” with the truth through conscious observation, and fully expressed it, we can then start the process of asking “why” we are feeling the way that we are, to find any limiting patterns. Any “why” understanding that contains an external cause for our feelings has not asked “why” far enough; it is still projecting responsibility outside-in. Once we have fully uncovered the patterns, programs, and artificial conditioning that has caused our uncomfortable, and in some cases downright painful experiences, we can begin to blend our “what” and “why” answers into our “how” solutions — wise behaviors that reflect our new state of awareness and being.
In actuality though, we are always blending our “what” and “why” into a “how”, because it is a part of existing here and now in the material realm. We can either act impulsively with our “how”, or we can resist it, but either way, we are still acting. The key lies in our ability to slow down our actions long enough to gain as much knowledge and understanding about our life as we can, to then allow our “what” and “why” to come together to create experiences that support both our individuality, and the individuality of others. Any behavior that does not support the uniqueness and individuality of others is either impulsive or resistant, and not spontaneous and aligned with the truth.
Mastering the art of asking questions, to truly know “what” is going on, to understand “why” it is happening, and “how” we can create our lives differently — is wisdom.
