FС 2: Joyful Wishes (JWs) and Mechanical Wishes (MWs)

Main page / Fundamental courses / FС 2: Joyful Wishes (JWs) and Mechanical Wishes (MWs)

    General description

    There are two types of wishes which are as diametrically opposite to each other as negative emotions and enlightened perceptions, which are: joyful wishes and mechanical wishes.

    Joyful wishes are the wishes accompanied by anticipation, joy and interest. Experiencing and especially realizing them is very pleasant, one is itching to do it.

    Experiencing joyful wishes, thinking about them, talking about them, realizing them separately or together with someone is always very pleasant, it enlivens you, makes your life richer and more full and happy even in case you can’t realize them by some reason.

    Mechanical wishes are brought to life by only our dogmas and blind certainties that we “should” act in a specific way. That’s their huge and fundamental difference from joyful wishes and calling them “wishes” is very relative as when a person realizes them, he says “I want to do this” despite the fact that in reality he doesn’t want to do that, doesn’t feel any joy, anticipation, enthusiasm, and only experiences slackness, dumbness, irritation, sadness, feeling of wasted time because of the fact that he “has to want to do that and do that”.

    Specific skills you will learn

    You will learn fundamentals about this important part of psyche, and will also train how to:

    • identify suppressed wishes and bring them back to life
    • search for joyful wishes and tell them from mechanical ones
    • have more joyful wishes and feel them more intensely
    • detach wish from its realization (or fulfilment)
    • derive more energy from having wishes
    • be a leader
    • manage and research wishes
    • create support for a wish you want to have
