Ego and Soul

Twin Poles of Attention

Twin Poles of Attention

Operating System

Just as a computer and a phone have an operating system, so does our own awareness. The twin poles of attention represent the basic operating system of human awareness [ref].

Twin Poles of Attention

The twin poles of attention are the subject-pole and the object-pole. At the object-pole is everything we are aware of, including thoughts, emotions, beliefs, perceptions, memories, hopes, ideas, self-image, etc. At the subject-pole of attention is feeling-awareness itself (or consciousness itself).

Opposite Polarity

The ego and the soul are located at opposite poles of attention. The ego is identified with the object-pole of attention (states of body and mind), and the soul is identified with the subject-pole of attention (feeling-awareness itself).

The ego and the soul are located at opposite poles of attention.

Ego

The ego is your body-mind self, or your false self. The ego is founded on identification with your body and mind at the object-pole of attention. The ego exercises IQ and EQ but has no access to SQ.

Soul

The soul is your existential self, or your true self. The soul is founded on identification with feeling-awareness itself (or consciousness itself) at the subject-pole of attention. The soul exercises IQ and EQ with SQ.

Three Dimensions of Intelligence

Three Dimensions of Intelligence

Qualities of the Ego

Being the ego means experiencing yourself as being your body and mind. The ego feels dissatisfied and insufficient, and constantly seeks satisfaction elsewhere, in the next experience, using this moment as a means to the next, and reacting to each moment from a state of lack.

Qualities of the Soul

Being the soul means experiencing yourself as being feeling-awareness itself (or consciousness itself). The native qualities of feeling-awareness itself are experienced at the subject-pole of attention in moments of presence, in the form of wisdom, compassion, integrity, joy, love, creativity, and peace. Consequently, the soul does not seek satisfaction elsewhere, in the next experience, because the soul is already happy, and therefore does not use this moment as a means to the next. Instead of reacting from a state of lack, the soul therefore responds in each moment from a state of prior fulfilment.

Different Purposes

The ego and the soul use IQ and EQ for different purposes. The ego uses IQ and EQ for personal gain, in the constant search for compensation for the inevitable dissatisfaction of being the ego. But the intelligence of the soul has a different purpose. SQ uses IQ and EQ for the benefit of all, to express the native qualities of feeling-awareness itself, which are experienced at the subject-pole of attention in moments of presence, in the form of wisdom, compassion, integrity, joy, love, creativity, and peace.

Spiritual intelligence shifts from ego to soul at the opposite pole of attention.

From Ego to Soul

The essence of spiritual intelligence is the shift from false self to true self, from ego to soul, at the opposite pole of attention. The SQ portal is a simple three-step process that rapidly shifts from ego to soul, and thus activates spiritual intelligence. Watch this short video for an explanation of how to use the SQ portal to experience your spiritual intelligence.

Spiritual Intelligence

Spiritual intelligence replaces the ego with the soul as the seat of personal identity and as the governor of IQ and EQ. Thus spiritual intelligence uses IQ and EQ, not from the ego, but from your true self as the soul. Consequently, SQ lives with wisdom, compassion, and integrity, which is the ultimate form of fulfilment.

Whole Brain Training

As a powerful combination of three principal dimensions of intelligence, 3Q represents IQ and EQ in association with SQ. Studies in neuroscience confirm that spiritual intelligence is correlated with hemispheric synchronisation and whole brain activation [ref]. Consequently, coaching in 3Q trains the whole brain. The resulting whole-brain coherence optimises brain function, and results in greater fulfilment, increased creativity, sharpened intuition, more empathy and compassion, and improved performance on a wide variety of work skills and life skills.

3Q Training

Training in 3Q is therefore the means of personal and professional growth and fulfilment. Research shows that when organisations invest in 3Q Training, creativity and innovation increase, employee engagement rises, and productivity grows [ref]. Moreover, 3Q Training reforms corporate governance by creating a culture that conducts business according to the ethics of spiritual intelligence. In addition, by inspiring employees with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, 3Q Training aligns organisations with a social mission beyond the profit motive.

Full Potential

Corporations thus realise their full potential not only to maximise productivity, but also to contribute to human wellbeing, by utilising the full range of their employees’ innate intelligence. Ultimately, the combined benefits of 3Q Training, both individual and collective, contribute to an emerging new age of cooperation, tolerance, social justice, human rights, shared prosperity, and peace. For more information about 3Q Training go here.

Sources

The SQ paradigm is based on a synthesis of findings from related fields of scientific research, including cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis, transpersonal psychology, and neuroscience. These findings represent the scientific foundations of spiritual intelligence, as summarised in the following article: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

How to Experience Spiritual Intelligence [Video]

Spiritual intelligence is easy to experience. We all experience SQ spontaneously at times. But spontaneous moments of SQ are rare and unpredictable. Therefore it’s important to know how to experience SQ intentionally. When you can engage your spiritual intelligence voluntarily, at any time of your own choosing, SQ becomes your most powerful personal resource. This video provides step-by-step instructions on how to activate SQ intentionally.

    As a side note, the more we can use trackbacks, pingbacks, and backlinks to spread the love and our message, the better. I encourage everyone to figure out how to use these tools as we can really make this site much more effective and heard.

  • Moses Benton

    Interesting articles on topics like this are a great find. It’s like
    finding a treasure. I appreciate how you express your many points and
    share your views. Thank you

    • Yes, a treasure. Spiritual intelligence is a
      treasure, and we all have it. Understanding spiritual intelligence is the first
      step in claiming our treasure. The experience of spiritual intelligences
      is the treasure itself. This video explains how to experience your spiritual intelligence.

  • Thanks for recommending this site to your friends. It’s important that spiritual intelligence is clearly understood, based on the scientific evidence. And it’s equally important that everyone knows how to experience their spiritual intelligence. That’s the purpose of this site. Thank you for helping to share spiritual intelligence more widely.

  • Cleckley

    A thoughtful opinion and ideas I will use on my blog. You’ve obviously spent some time on this. Thank you!

    • I’m glad you appreciate my findings about spiritual intelligence. Please see the Admin page for guidelines on reproducing content from this site. Thank you

    • I’m glad you want to share my findings about spiritual intelligence with your readers. Please see the Admin page for guidelines on reproducing content from this site. Thank you

  • RS

    I haven’t been interested in an article on this sort of topic in a long time. Your approach to this subject pulls a lot of weight with me. Your article is very intelligent and I enjoyed reading it.

  • Please go ahead. You are welcome to list this site in your web directory. Thanks for sharing my findings about spiritual intelligence.

  • Escandon

    I totally agree with exactly what you’re saying. There’ll be one or two people who disagree, as you can imagine. Perhaps you only need to forget those individuals

    • I’m glad you agree with my findings. Some will disagree, as you say. However, I think it is useful to engage those who hold opposing views, rather than simply ignore them. By explaining spiritual intelligence in response to those who disagree, the unique features and benefits of spiritual intelligence can be highlighted. This is beneficial for those who want to learn more about spiritual intelligence, even if it doesn’t change the opinion of those who disagree. This is why recent posts in the “Comments and Replies” series include some comments from those who hold opposing views.

  • Emmitt Bishop

    Someday this article will be among the writings that go down in history as one of the most beneficial articles ever written on this subject.

    • You have evidently recognised the unique contribution my findings make to the understanding of spirituality. Thank you for your appreciation. My findings about spiritual intelligence identify the basic operating system of human awareness, in the form of the twin poles of attention, with the ego (or the false self) at the object-pole, and the true self or the soul (consciousness itself) at the subject-pole. The twin poles of attention are otherwise known as the 3Q map of attention. This represents an enormous advance on previous knowledge because the 3Q map of attention is the key to understanding and experiencing higher states of consciousness. This video shows how to use the 3Q map of attention to navigate from ego to soul, and thus find your best resources in any moment by activating spiritual intelligence.

  • Helaine Bis

    I thought your article was really helpful. It’s usually hard to make a complicated matter seem simple. I enjoy your weblog and will sign up to your feed so I will not miss anything. Fantastic content.

  • That’s a good point. Thank you for bringing it up. Your comment helps to clarify the nature of spiritual intelligence. Normally we are identified with objects of attention, in the form of thoughts, emotions, perceptions etc. Consequently, we forget that we are consciousness itself, and we falsely believe that we are this body and mind. This is called being the ego, instead of being the true self, the soul. But when we are reminded of our true position as consciousness itself, we recognise the truth of this fact. As you say, its obvious. However, when we forget the true self, and revert to being the ego, then it’s not obvious at all. That’s the amazing thing, as you say.

    Straight to the theory and written well, I appreciate your post. I merely wish there were more goodies like this on the web today. Thanks

  • Mable Guesman

    This is absolutely a wonderful article. My only issue is I am experiencing a problem with your RSS feed . For some reason I am unable to subscribe to it. Is there anybody else having a similar RSS problem?

    • I’m glad you appreciate my findings about spiritual intelligence. There was a temporary problem with the RSS, but it’s working again now. Please try again. Thank you.

  • Christopher

    I enjoy what you are up too. This kind of clever work and exposure! Keep up the very good work. I’ve added you to my blogroll.

  • Galeazzi

    Your post is very good, and I’m sure many will find it interesting and useful because it’s about a topic that’s widely discussed. Cheers so much for your post.

  • My inspiration takes it’s origin from two sources: firstly, my experience of spiritual practice, and secondly, my findings from the study of psychology. I began this research a long time ago as a personal quest to find meaning and purpose in my own life. Having studied psychology, philosophy and theology at university, I found no answers to my questions in mainstream academia. So I continued my search by investigating the traditions of world spirituality. Along the way I had first-hand experience of a number of different spiritual traditions, and encountered many spiritual teachers. At the same time I worked as a psychotherapist, and continued my research in psychology. In particular, I researched transpersonal psychology, which studies the nature of consciousness from a psychological perspective. Eventually, a synthesis of psychology and spirituality emerged from my research in the form of the spiritual intelligence paradigm, which is the foundation of all the articles on this site.

  • Shona McLead

    The knowledge you present on this site has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all your time & work.

  • Otha Sanford

    I thought I had a grasp on this topic until I read your article. I was very mistaken. You have taught me something today. Your article really opened my eyes.

  • Mymas

    Game changing innovations are few and far between. They are usually simple concepts to describe but when they arrive it takes time to fully realise their importance and impact. Television was a game-changer, mobile phones were a game-changer, and blogging is another one. This site illustrates how a simple blog has the potential to make an enormous contribution to millions of people.

    • I’m glad you recognise the significance of my findings about spiritual intelligence. The game changing innovation you mention is the basic operating system of human awareness. This is a simple concept, as you said, representing the twin poles of attention, with the ego and the soul at opposite poles. This video describes a rapid three-step process that shifts from ego to soul, and activates spiritual intelligence. As an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can access, spiritual intelligence represents the next stage in the evolution of collective consciousness.

  • The articles on this site I wrote myself to report the results of my research. My findings about spiritual intelligence are based on evidence from three main sources. Firstly, the results of scientific research in a number of different fields, including cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis, transpersonal psychology, and neuroscience. Secondly, the findings of spiritual traditions based on the experience of spiritual practitioners over thousands of years . And thirdly, my own experience as a psychologist and spiritual practitioner. After the combining evidence from all these sources, a secular synthesis of psychology and spirituality emerged from my research, in the form of the SQ paradigm. This is the foundation of all the articles on this site.

  • Spiritual intelligence is emerging as the next stage in the evolution of collective consciousness. That’s why I am dedicated to this work. I want to bring the good news to everyone. Not just the good news, but also the science and the methodology. It’s so important that everyone understands spiritual intelligence, and is able to use it. As Einstein famously said, problems cannot be solved at the level at which they were created. The global problems we face today are unprecedented, and they were created by the unimpeded operation of the ego. Only by transcending the ego and using our spiritual intelligence can we expect to solve them.

  • Thank you for helping to share spiritual intelligence.

  • Graig Webb

    Im a huge fan already, man. Youve done a brilliant job making sure that people understand what you mean. And let me tell you, I get it. Great stuff and I cant wait to read more of your posts. What youve got to say is important and needs to be read.

  • This article identifies the twin poles of attention as the basic operating system of human awareness, with the ego at the object-pole and the soul (or consciousness itself) at the subject-pole. In your comment you ask why other experts in this field do not recognise this. There’s a reason. It has to do with the origins of this analysis.

    This analysis of spiritual intelligence is the product of a synthesis that combines the findings of scientific research with the discoveries of spiritual traditions. Other researchers in this field tend to base their views either on one or the other source of evidence. For the most part, the psychological research is favoured by authors who write about spiritual intelligence, while a minority of authors base their views on traditional sources of spiritual wisdom. But rarely do authors on this subject combine and integrate evidence from both sources.

    However, any analysis of human consciousness is incomplete without combining evidence from both psychology and spirituality. This inter-disciplinary synthesis is the foundation of articles on this site. In the absence of such a synthesis, the basic operating system of human awareness is not apparent. Therefore, in answer to your question, this is the reason why other writers in this field tend to omit this basic understanding.

  • Malik Wilder

    This is a really tremendous article and I thank you that you have written in such a great way that even I could understand it. Keep up such good writing and you’ll get a lot more readers in the future for sure.

  • Minh Cooke

    Until I read your article, I thought I was well versed on this subject matter. Thank you for giving me more fresh information to add to my knowledge to make me a better teacher.

    • It’s important to include education in spiritual intelligence in the school curriculum, so that young people can learn how to use a higher dimension of intelligence. Some schools already train their teachers and students in spiritual intelligence [ref]. One of the many benefits of SQ is that it improves academic performance by improving IQ deployment and increasing EQ. In addition spiritual intelligence supports a young person’s growth in maturity and personal responsibility. This video provides basic instructions about how to experience spiritual intelligence. But more needs to be understood and taught to develop spiritual intelligence. If you want to train to be a teacher of spiritual intelligence, please see this online course.

  • I’m glad you find this interesting. The mission of the 3Q Institute is to make education in spiritual intelligence available to everyone. The SQ Education Program Level 2 includes more information.

  • Perry Waylon

    I loved reading your article. I feel you took otherwise boring information and turned it into new and fresh content. I am very impressed with your vast knowledge and insight.

  • Antonette

    This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.

  • Emmitt Bishop

    Someday this article will be among the writings that go down in history as one of the most beneficial articles ever written on this subject.

    • Thanks for your appreciation of this article. You evidently recognise the unique contribution this article makes to our understanding of spirituality. This article summarises the principles of secular spirituality, and identifies the twin poles of attention as the basic operating system of human awareness. This understanding represents an enormous advance on previous knowledge. One of the benefits of understanding the mechanism of attention is that we can use this knowledge to access higher states of awareness with ease and precision. One application of this new map of attention is the SQ portal, which provides access to spiritual intelligence.

    • Thanks for your appreciation of my work on spiritual intelligence. You have evidently recognised the unique contribution of my findings. The SQ paradigm establishes spirituality on a secular scientific foundation, by elucidating the psychological process that transcends the ego and realises the true self or the soul. Spiritual intelligence identifies the twin poles of attention as the basic operating system of human awareness, with the ego, or the false self, at the object-pole, and the true self, the soul, or consciousness itself, at the subject-pole. You can use the twin-pole map of attention to navigate through the jungle of the mind’s impulses, to find your best resources in any situation by activating spiritual intelligence.

  • The mission of the 3Q Institute is to make spiritual intelligence education available to everyone. I appreciate your help in sharing this website. We need all the help we can get. Thank you.

  • Licari

    Man I definitely adore your write-up, it is so commendable that I’m going to bookmark it. I have to say the wonderful research behind this article is remarkable!! Who does that additional research these days? Hats off to You.

    Superb material, thanks to the article writer. It’s amazing. The overall relevance and value is overwhelming. Appreciate it and all the best ..

  • Pashia

    This is the most superb post that I have ever discovered after huge searches. I’m genuinely grateful to you for giving me this unique info.

  • TM

    Amazingly, your piece goes to the heart of the topic. Your clarity leaves me wanting to know more. i’ll join your feed to keep current with your blog. Thanks for your masterpiece, it’s a fantastic resource. Best wishes for your future posts.

  • Dorothy Myers

    The particular clearness within your post is simply spectacular and i can assume you are a professional on this subject.

    • I’m glad to know the article is clear. Thanks for confirming that. Clarity is the number one requirement for any article on this subject because there’s a great deal of confusion about this topic and about spirituality in general. You asked about my background. I’m a psychologist and spiritual practitioner. This article about spiritual intelligence combines my findings as a psychologist with my experience as a spiritual practitioner. The resulting synthesis integrates the results of modern scientific research with the discoveries of ancient spiritual traditions. My findings on spiritual intelligence therefore represent the meeting of science and spirituality.

  • Vari

    I must say your blog is very wise. I found lots of other sites about this subject, but nothing like this. Thank you for discussing so much on your website.

  • Kiana Delaney

    That’s quite a unique explanation of spirituality, never really thought of that. Splendid article.

    • This article on the ego and the soul uses the transpersonal definition of the soul, in contrast to the supernatural definition of the soul.

      The supernatural concept of the soul, as taught by religious traditions, defines the soul as a mysterious entity that resides in some other dimension of reality not readily accessible while alive. The supernatural notion of the soul is a matter of faith, because it depends on belief not on experience.

      By contrast, the transpersonal understanding of the soul, based on the results of psychological research and the findings of spiritual traditions, recognises the soul as completely natural (not super-natural) because the soul is simply consciousness itself (apparently individuated). The soul can therefore be experienced while alive, because you can simply be consciousness itself, which is what activates spiritual intelligence.

      The transpersonal understanding of the soul (as consciousness itself) is the foundation of the SQ paradigm. As an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can experience without relying on belief, spiritual intelligence therefore represents secular spirituality.

  • Baldacci

    Great post, thank you so much for sharing. Gonna tweet and bookmark it. Hope it gets you some more exposure. Thanks.

    • Thank you for helping to share these findings on spiritual intelligence. This is how a new paradigm emerges. This website presents the evidence for spiritual intelligence and provides access to the experiential methodology that activates spiritual intelligence. As an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can access, spiritual intelligence represents the next stage in the evolution of collective consciousness.

      Widespread adoption of spiritual intelligence as a personal code of conduct raises the standard of accountability in collective governance in response to public demand. When standards in corporations and governments are based on spiritual intelligence, the energy of love will turn into a social and political force, as never before in history. Public access to training in spiritual intelligence therefore heralds a new age of human rights and social justice, which are the foundations of shared prosperity and peace.

      So thanks for your help in sharing this website. When public access to training in spiritual intelligence is provided, collective awakening grows, until ultimately a tipping point is reached, and a new collective paradigm emerges. There’s more about this subject in this article, which explains why spiritual intelligence is the new paradigm of the third millennium.

  • Fred Laks

    First of all, please accept my appreciation for your command of this matter. Even though this is certainly brand new, nevertheless soon after finding your site, my intellect has exploded extensively. I’m going to get your rss to keep in touch with future posts. Sincere thanks. Will pass it on to help others.

  • Dorothy Myers

    The particular clearness in your post is simply spectacular and i must assume you are a professional on this subject.

    • I’m glad you appreciate the clarity of the SQ paradigm. My background is in psychology and spiritual practice. As a psychologist my specialties are in psychotherapy and psychological research. Alongside my research in the psychology of spirituality, I also maintain my own spiritual practice. My personal experience confirms both the scientific research about spiritual intelligence, and the findings of spiritual traditions about the spiritual dimension of intelligence.

  • dr house

    Nice, love this blog. I’m gonna share it on my twitter.

    • Thanks for sharing spiritual intelligence with your community on twitter. That’s how a new paradigm emerges. When people share spiritual intelligence with friends and contacts, a tipping point is reached eventually, and spiritual intelligence emerges into mainstream consciousness. We are getting close to that tipping point now. See this article about the new paradigm of the third millennium.

    Do you develop all of this content yourself, or do you use some sort of application that receives this content from someplace?

    • All the content on this site I developed myself. The articles on this site report the results of my research in psychology and spirituality. My findings are drawn from three main sources. Firstly, the results of scientific research in a number of different fields, including cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis, transpersonal psychology, and neuroscience [ref]. Secondly, the findings of spiritual traditions based on the experience of spiritual practitioners over thousands of years [ref]. And thirdly, my own experience as a psychologist and spiritual practitioner [ref].

  • Paneque

    Howdy this is a superb article. I’m going to email this to my buddies. I came on this while searching on google. I’ll be certain to come back, thank you for writing.

  • Canan

    Priceless content! Thank you for a great post.

  • Brunsen

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’ll read some of you other posts, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    • The main issue isn’t complicated to understand. The main issue is that we have a choice. We can choose to be identified with our thoughts, or we can choose to be identified with consciousness itself. When we are identified with our thoughts, we think we are our mind. This is called being the ego. When we are identified with consciousness itself, we experience all the inherent qualities of consciousness itself, such as wisdom and compassion, and love and peace. This is called being the soul. This is the main point of this article.

  • Isgur

    Good day, intelligent points.. now why didn’t i consider these myself?

    • Why didn’t you consider these points yourself? Probably because you have accepted traditional religious views about the nature of the soul. Religion defines the soul in supernatural terms, in contrast to the SQ paradigm which defines the soul in transpersonal terms. The difference is crucial.

  • Harrier

    I really like and appreciate your post. Thanks Again. Much obliged.

    Fascinating post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts in this field don’t notice this. You should continue your publishing. I’m confident you’ve already got a great readers’ base!

    • This article identifies the twin poles of attention as the basic operating system of human awareness, with the ego at the object-pole and the soul (or consciousness itself, independent of objects) at the subject-pole. In your comment you ask why other experts in this field do not notice this. There’s a reason. It has to do with the origins of this analysis. This analysis is the product of a synthesis that combines the findings of scientific research with the findings of spiritual traditions. However, other writers in this field tend to base their views either on the psychological research or on the evidence from spiritual practice. They rarely combine the two. But the basic operating system of human awareness can only be identified by integrating psychology and spirituality. The articles on this site about spiritual intelligence are based on this inter-disciplinary synthesis. In the absence of such a synthesis, the twin poles of attention are not evident as the basic operating system of human awareness. Consequently, in answer to your question, other writers in this field tend to miss this basic understanding.

    Hello man, I was searching google and just stumbled on your weblog. I am really glad I did. You posted some great info. Did a fast bookmark on this article and will be checking back every once in a while for updates. Cool stuff keep up the wonderful work.

  • I agree about the importance of sharing information about spiritual intelligence as widely as possible. Scientific research has established that spiritual intelligence is a higher dimension of intelligence that we all possess. However it needs to be cultivated intentionally, other wise it occurs only rarely and at random. When you know how to activate spiritual intelligence at will, it becomes your most powerful personal resource. That’s the reason for offering the Practitioner training course in spiritual intelligence. This online course teaches how to activate spiritual intelligence using a contemporary secular methodology. Certified Practitioners can then teach others. Practitioners are provided with the training materials to teach spiritual intelligence to the members of organisations and to the public. Find out more about the Practitioner training course here. If you want to help share this information about spiritual intelligence around the net, consider sharing this post on social media using the sharing buttons on this page. Thank you.

  • Domin

    I’m not sure I really agree with this. Are you sure?

    • This article summarises a great deal of research. The discovery of the basic operating system of human awareness rests on a foundation of findings in cognitive psychology, transpersonal psychology, psychoanalysis, and neuroscience. These findings are summarised in this article. The overwhelming evidence, which is derived from multiple independent fields of scientific research, gives me confidence in this discovery. Moreover, the evidence from scientific research is corroborated by my personal experience of spiritual practice, and by the experience of a multitude of spiritual practitioners over thousands of years, as encoded in the teachings of numerous spiritual traditions. So when you ask whether I am sure, I can confidently say yes.

  • Kerrie Laub

    Thanks for this article. There seems to be a lot of new info to discover here on this site. My very best regards.

  • Kristine Distasio

    At last! I’ve been looking for this information for such a long time! I’ve looked everywhere. There’s nowhere else with these simple and clear explanations. Thank you so much!

    • I’m glad you’ve found what you were looking for. You said you’ve been seeking clear explanations for a long time. Many other readers have said the same thing. Clear understanding is the first step. The second step, which is just as important as the first, is to put your new-found clarity to use. That means using your new understanding in order to experience your spiritual intelligence. This video shows how.

      Why do many readers say they have been seeking the information on this site? The reason is that SQ meets the needs of those who have outgrown both mainstream world-views, represented by theism and materialism. SQ represents a third alternative to both these conventional points of view, in the form of a secular post-materialist paradigm [ref].

      Based on a synthesis that unites ancient wisdom with modern science, the SQ paradigm updates spirituality in contemporary secular terms. Consequently, SQ represents the currently emerging stage of collective consciousness. This is one of the main reasons for the popularity of this site. There are other reasons too, which are described in this post about the top ten features of spiritual intelligence.

      The experience of spiritual intelligence is not new, even though the term “spiritual intelligence” is a new way of describing the experience. The essence of spiritual intelligence is the peace and compassion of the soul, which has been experienced for thousands of years, and is familiar to practitioners of every religious and spiritual tradition. But although the experience of SQ is not new, nevertheless the SQ paradigm is new. The SQ paradigm updates our understanding of spirituality in scientific terms, and provides access to spirituality by contemporary secular means.

  • Jene

    What made you think about such a topic? Its useful information for anyone, including myself. Keep it up! Thanks!

    • Thanks for your comment. You said this information about spiritual intelligence is useful for everyone. That’s right. This is about the basic operating system of human awareness. It’s necessary to know how your awareness works in order to access your full potential. That’s why this information about spiritual intelligence is useful for everyone. You ask what made me think about this topic. I couldn’t help myself. I have always felt an urgent need to understand. From an early age I was on a quest for understanding, and everything else in my life was relegated to second place. The driving force behind my quest was a need to understand the meaning and purpose of existence. I explored everything that seemed to offer some sort of answer. I explored religion, science, philosophy, theology, and psychology. But all my searching was in vain. I discovered that no ultimate answers were to be found by studying. So I turned to the only remaining theatre of investigation that I had not explored. I determined to devote myself to spiritual practice. Thus began my journey of spiritual growth, many years ago. Alongside my work as a psychologist, I maintained a personal spiritual practice, and over a period of time I experienced a number of different spiritual traditions. Eventually the SQ paradigm emerged from my research as a synthesis of findings in psychology and spirituality, as summarised in the articles on this site.

  • Riggs

  • Fallenstein

    I am thankful that I discovered this website, exactly the right information that I was looking for!

  • Micale

    Precisely how did you choose this conclusion? In no way bashing, simply just interested.

    • Thanks for your interest in my research. You asked how I arrived at this conclusion. That’s an important question, so I’m pleased you asked. A conclusion is only as reliable as the research methods that produced it. But your question contains a misunderstanding. You asked how I chose this conclusion. But I didn’t choose. My conclusions are not based on choice. They are based on evidence.

      I did the research, found the evidence, and drew the corresponding conclusions based on the evidence. In other words, my findings are a product of the scientific method. That’s why my conclusions are not a matter of choice. If my conclusions were based on choice, rather than on evidence, they wouldn’t be reliable, because they would merely represent my personal opinion, unsupported by evidence, and without any corroboration from independent sources.

      But in fact spiritual intelligence is confirmed by a great deal of peer-reviewed scientific research. The evidence for spiritual intelligence is drawn from various different fields of scientific research, including cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis, transpersonal psychology, and neuroscience [ref]. Moreover, the scientific evidence for spiritual intelligence is corroborated by the shared experience of meditators and spiritual practitioners over thousands of years [ref]. By uniting psychology and spirituality on a scientific foundation, SQ is therefore emerging as a new paradigm representing secular spirituality.

      Thank you for asking about my research. You have given me an opportunity to highlight the scientific foundations of the SQ paradigm. For more details about the science behind spiritual intelligence, see this article.

    Good read … catchy title … good points, some of which I have learned along the way as well (humility, grace, layoff the controversial stuff). Will share with my colleagues at work as we begin blogging about this topic from a corporate perspective. Thanks!

  • Roen

    People have no clue that this info is available. Your knowledge of this subject is what I needed to set the record straight. Please continue with your research.

    • Glad you found this useful. This info is not widely known, as you say. The scientific foundations of spirituality are still a bit of a secret. This site is dedicated to changing that. Everyone needs to understand the basic operating system of their own awareness, not only for their own sake, but also for the benefit of everyone else. Knowing how to navigate from ego to soul, from one pole of attention to the other, is basic training for human life.

      
Shifting from ego to soul activates spiritual intelligence, which gives access to wisdom and compassion and integrity, and all the other qualities and capabilities of the soul. Spiritual intelligence is therefore the foundation of human maturity, and the basis of global cooperative community. Consequently, the emergence of spiritual intelligence into mainstream culture marks the beginning of a new age, representing the next stage of collective evolution.

      Widespread adoption of SQ as a personal code of conduct raises the standard of accountability in collective governance in response to public demand. When standards in governments and corporations are based on spiritual intelligence, the energy of love will turn into a social and political force, as never before in history. Public SQ education therefore heralds a new age of social justice and human rights, which are the foundations of shared prosperity and peace.

      Today however the ego plane of consciousness almost everywhere prevails in the public domain. Public institutions, like corporations and governments, are not required or expected to abide by SQ standards. So it’s time spiritual intelligence went mainstream. Education in spiritual intelligence is the birthright of all, and the driver of social evolution. If you want to contribute to the next stage of collective consciousness, there are sharing buttons on every page of this site for posting articles from here to social media. See this post for more about sharing spiritual intelligence as the means of global transformation.

  • Pillers

    Hey, awesome blog you have made.. How long did it take you to produce this? And where did you receive your background?

    • It took decades of research in psychology and spirituality to come up with these results. As a psychologist and spiritual practitioner, my background is in scientific study combined with experiential learning. While working as a psychologist, I maintained a personal spiritual practice and had first-hand experience in a number of different spiritual traditions. The driving force behind my research, both as a psychologist and as a spiritual practitioner, was a personal quest to understand reality from my own experience. My quest required me at the outset to study what anyone has ever said about the nature of reality. To get to my starting point it was necessary to study philosophy, theology, psychology, spirituality, religion, history, anthropology, biology, astronomy, physics, and world literature. My task was then to validate what I had learned from my studies against the evidence of my own experience of spiritual practice, and on that basis learn more. This process of validation unfolded over several decades under the guidance of a number of different spiritual teachers. My quest was not only for my own sake. I also wanted to share my discoveries with everyone. I’m pleased that my findings as helpful to many people, judging by the comments by visitors to this site.

  • I’m glad you have found the clear explanations that you’ve been seeking for a long time. Clear understanding is the first step. The second step, which is just as important, is to put your new-found clarity to use. That means learning how to use your new understanding to experience your spiritual intelligence. This video shows how.

  • Legrow

  • Schlaack

    Even Darwin believes now.

    • That’s a good point. As the founder of the science of evolution, Charles Darwin is often cited as a prime representative of the scientific worldview. The orthodox scientific worldview is based on the philosophy of materialism, which denies the existence of the soul. Nevertheless, as you point out, if Darwin were alive today, he would have to accept that the soul exists, according to the secular meaning of the term as defined by the SQ paradigm. SQ defines the soul as (individuated) feeling-awareness itself. So your comment about Darwin is significant. You are highlighting the fact that SQ represents a new paradigm that supersedes the materialist world-view, which has prevailed as the dominant paradigm up to now, both in science and in mainstream global culture, for the last few centuries.

      However I must clarify something with reference to your comment. Darwin’s acknowledgement of the existence of the soul would not make him a “believer” as you put it. Spiritual intelligence is not dependant on beliefs. The experience of spiritual intelligence verifies that beliefs are surplus to requirements. When you engage your spiritual intelligence via the SQ portal, you experience yourself as consciousness itself (otherwise known as the soul), instead of experiencing yourself as your body and mind (otherwise known as the ego). By identifying with consciousness itself (or feeling-awareness itself), you access the capabilities of your soul in the form of spiritual intelligence by means of direct personal experience, without relying on belief. Belief is therefore not necessary for spiritual intelligence. SQ is activated by exercising attention according to the clearly defined steps of the SQ portal. This video explains the method.

      Belief is what distinguishes SQ from religion. Belief by definition is based on insufficient evidence, because if the evidence was sufficient, belief would be unnecessary. But in contrast to religion, SQ is not based on belief. SQ is based on evidence. The evidence for spiritual intelligence is derived from two sources. Firstly, direct personal experience [1]. Secondly, the findings of scientific research [2]. SQ is therefore based on empirical foundations. Thus spiritual intelligence is founded on knowledge, not on belief. Consequently the SQ paradigm represents the science of spirituality [3].

      Nevertheless, aside from the issue of belief, your comment about Darwin is significant. You are making an important point of general relevance. Your comment isn’t merely about Darwin’s own personal worldview. You are making a general point about orthodox science, of which Darwin is cited as a representative. Your comment highlights the fact that mainstream science is founded on materialist assumptions that have now been superseded by secular spirituality. The emergence of secular spirituality in the form of the SQ paradigm therefore puts an end to the legitimacy of the materialist world view, which was the prevailing axiom of orthodox science in Darwin’s time, and remains so today.

      Materialist science denies the legitimacy of spirituality on the basis of a prejudicial belief that only material things exist [4]. There is no evidence to support the materialist point of view. In fact, all the evidence points conclusively to the contrary. The SQ paradigm establishes the existence of the soul on empirical grounds [5]. Studies of near-death experience by post-materialist science confirm that the soul indeed exists, in the form of individuated consciousness independent of the brain and body.

      [6, 7]. Contrary to the common misconception that near-death experiences are merely the last throes of a dying brain, the evidence shows that in fact near-death experiences sometimes occur when the brain is not functioning. Clearly consciousness is independent of the brain, as documented in the video below.

      Thus the existence of the soul is established beyond doubt based on empirical evidence. Therefore it should now be evident, even to champions of science (like Darwin), that the soul exists. This is the point you are making in your comment.

      Spiritual intelligence can be experienced by means of direct personal experience without relying on religious belief. As an innate dimension of intelligence, SQ therefore represents the foundation of secular spirituality [8]. The emergence of secular spirituality into mainstream culture marks an enormous shift in collective consciousness [9]. Your comment about Darwin highlights the epoch-changing scale of this emerging paradigm shift. It has taken me quite a few paragraphs to explain what you condensed into a few words. Thanks for your very succinct comment.

  • Severt

    This post is something definitely worth understanding. There are tons of other websites that simply make no sense. Do keep up the good blogging and more visitors will keep coming.

  • Roen

    People have no clue that this info is available. Your knowledge of this subject is what I needed to set the record straight. Please continue with your research.

    • The scientific foundations of secular spirituality are not well known, as you say in your comment. This site is dedicated to changing that. Everyone needs to understand the basic operating principles of their own awareness, for their own benefit and for the benefit of everyone else. Knowing how to navigate from one pole of attention to the other, from ego to soul, is basic training for human life.

      Shifting from ego to soul activates spiritual intelligence, and gives access to wisdom, compassion and integrity, and all the other qualities and capabilities of the soul. Spiritual intelligence is therefore the foundation of human maturity. Consequently, the emergence of spiritual intelligence into mainstream culture represents the beginning of a new stage of collective evolution.

      Widespread adoption of SQ as a personal code of conduct builds a new standard of accountability in collective governance, in response to public demand. Institutional standards based on SQ turn the energy of love into a social and political force. Accordingly, public SQ education is the foundation of a new age of social justice and human rights, which are pre-requisites for shared prosperity and peace.

      Today however the ego plane of consciousness almost everywhere prevails in the public domain. The spiritual dimension of intelligence is largely reserved in practice for private exchanges between individuals. Public institutions, like corporations and governments, are not yet required or expected to abide by SQ standards. So it’s time SQ education went mainstream.

      If you want to contribute to the next stage of social evolution, there are sharing buttons on every page of this site for posting articles from here to social media. The following post has more about sharing spiritual intelligence as the means of global transformation: Thanks are Due to You from Each and Everyone.

  • Michale

    Precisely how did you choose this conclusion? In no way bashing, simply just interested.

    • Thanks for your interest in my research. Your question about how I arrived at this conclusion is important. So I’m pleased you asked. A conclusion is only as reliable as the research methodology used to arrive at the conclusion. However, your question contains a misunderstanding. You asked how I chose this conclusion. It’s important to understand that my conclusions are not based on choice. My conclusions are based on the evidence. I did the research, found the evidence, and drew the corresponding conclusions based on the evidence. In other words, my research findings are a product of the scientific method. Consequently, my conclusions are not a matter of choice. If my conclusions were based on choice, rather than on evidence, they wouldn’t be reliable, because they would merely represent an arbitrary personal opinion. But in fact the SQ paradigm is based on a great deal of empirical evidence from peer-reviewed scientific research. For a summary of scientific evidence for spiritual intelligence, see the following article: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

    Precisely how did you choose this conclusion? In no way bashing, simply just interested.

    • I’m pleased you’re interested in this research. You asked how I chose this conclusion. However, your question is based on a misunderstanding.

      I didn’t choose this conclusion. My conclusions are established on the evidence. I did the research, found the evidence, and drew the corresponding conclusions based on the evidence.

      My conclusions are therefore a product of the scientific method. They are not the result of my choice.

      If my conclusions were based on choice, rather than on evidence, they wouldn’t be reliable, because they would simply represent my personal opinion.

      But in fact the SQ paradigm is corroborated by a great deal of evidence in the form of peer-reviewed scientific research.

      For a summary of scientific evidence for spiritual intelligence, see the following article: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

  • Schlaack

    Even Darwin believes now.

    • That’s a good point. As the founder of the science of evolution, Charles Darwin is often cited as a prime representative of the scientific worldview. The orthodox scientific worldview is based on the philosophy of materialism, which denies the existence of the soul. Nevertheless, as you point out, if Darwin were alive today, he would have to accept that we all have a soul, according to the secular meaning of the term as defined by the SQ paradigm. So your comment about Darwin is significant. Your comment highlights the fact that SQ represents a new paradigm that supersedes scientific materialism.

      However, I must clarify with reference to your comment that this would not make Darwin a “believer.” SQ does not depend on beliefs. Spiritual intelligence is based on personal experience and on scientific evidence, not on beliefs. The experience of spiritual intelligence verifies that beliefs are surplus to requirements. When you engage your spiritual intelligence via the SQ portal, you experience yourself as feeling-awareness itself (as the soul), rather than as your body and mind (as the ego). By identifying with the feeling-awareness itself, you access the capabilities of your soul in the form of spiritual intelligence by means of direct personal experience, without relying on belief. Belief is therefore not necessary. SQ is a directly experienced as a result of exercising attention according to the clearly defined steps of the SQ portal. This video explains the method. Thus belief is simply superfluous to spiritual intelligence.

      The experience of spiritual intelligence therefore represents knowledge, not belief. The absence of belief is what distinguishes SQ from religion. Belief by definition is based on insufficient evidence, because if the evidence was sufficient, belief would be unnecessary. In contrast to religion, SQ is based on evidence. The evidence for spiritual intelligence is derived from direct personal experience, and is corroborated by the findings of scientific research [1]. SQ is therefore based on empirical foundations. Thus spiritual intelligence is founded on knowledge, not on belief. Consequently the SQ paradigm represents the science of spirituality [2]. SQ therefore does not make us “believers.” Spiritual intelligence makes us “knowers.” And what do we know as a result of using our SQ? We know that the spiritual dimension of intelligence is a reality based on our direct personal experience. Thus we know that spirituality is not a matter of belief.

      Nevertheless, aside from the issue of belief, your comment about Darwin is significant. You are making an important point of general relevance. Your comment isn’t merely about Darwin’s own personal worldview. In fact, Darwin leaned towards belief in God. However, you are making a general point about orthodox science, of which Darwin is seen as a representative. Your comment highlights the fact that mainstream science is founded on materialist assumptions that have now been superseded. The emergence of secular spirituality puts an end to the legitimacy of the materialist point of view, which was the prevailing axiom of orthodox science in Darwin’s time, and remains so today.

      Materialist science denies the legitimacy of spirituality on the basis of a prejudicial belief that only material things exist [3]. There is no evidence to support the materialist point of view. In fact, all the evidence confirms the contrary. Post-materialist science, on which the SQ paradigm is based, rests on solid empirical evidence. [4]. The SQ paradigm establishes the existence of the soul on empirical grounds [5]. Therefore it should now be evident, even to champions of science (like Darwin), that everyone has a soul, according to the meaning of the term “soul” as defined by the SQ paradigm.

      SQ is an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can access by means of direct personal experience, without relying on religious belief. SQ therefore represents the foundation of secular spirituality [6]. The emergence of secular spirituality into mainstream culture marks an epoch-changing shift in collective consciousness [7]. The scale of this paradigm shift is what you were alluding to in your comment about Darwin. It has taken me several paragraphs to explain what you managed to condense into a few words. Thanks for your very succinct review.

  • Lucius Ochoa

    Its amazing how interesting it is for me to visit your site very often.

    • I’m glad you like to visit this site frequently. Perhaps it’s the enjoyment of being your soul that makes you return often? By re-reading these articles, you remind yourself of your soul. When you use the SQ portal you can enjoy your soul’s inherent qualities, in the form of peace, compassion, joy, love, wisdom, creativity etc. It’s a relief to spend a few moments feeling at one with consciousness itself, instead of the usual ego condition of being identified with the body and mind, including all the contents of the mind. These SQ moments re-establish your sense of self on a fearless and peaceful foundation. After using the SQ portal you can maintain your spiritual intelligence thoughtlessly, without needing to continually repeat the three steps of the portal. We need frequent experiences of our soul to counteract the oppressive effects of ego states of mind and emotion, which are constantly reinforced by the omnipresent propaganda of the dominant materialist paradigm. We are told with solemn scientific authority that we are the body and mind. It’s supposed to be normal to be locked up inside your thinking mind, identified with every passing thought and emotion. We are told that we are merely accidental bits of flotsam, in a meaningless sea of atoms, washed up on the shores of a small insignificant planet. In order to counteract the dispiriting influence of this exclusively object-pole narrative, we need frequent reminders, and frequent experiences, of a deeper reality. So maybe that’s why you like to visit this site often, in order to re-experience who you really are? But whatever your reason for coming back here frequently, you are welcome.

By identifying with the feeling-awareness itself, you access the spiritual capabilities of your soul, by means of direct experiential access, without relying on belief. The capabilities of your soul are the properties of spiritual intelligence, and are otherwise known as whole brain capabilities, because they coincide with whole brain activation. The shift from ego to soul activates SQ, and is directly experienced in moments of presence. Belief is therefore not necessary. SQ is an undeniable experience. Thus belief is simply superfluous.

      The experience of spiritual intelligence therefore represents knowledge, not belief. The absence of belief is what distinguishes spiritual intelligence from religion.

SQ therefore does not make us “believers.” SQ makes us “knowers.” And what do we know? We know that spirituality is a reality, and thus not a matter of belief.

      However, aside from the issue about belief, your comment about Darwin makes an important point. Integral science verifies that science supports spirituality, in contrast to materialist science, which sets science against spirituality [ref]. Thus the SQ paradigm establishes spirituality on an empirical evidence-based foundation, without relying on unverifiable religious beliefs in the existence of a deity. Therefore, in accordance with the SQ paradigm, it is now evident, even to champions of science, that everyone must have a soul. Consequently, as an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can access, SQ represents the foundation of secular non-theistic spirituality [ref]. This is what you were alluding to in your very succinct comment. Thank you for condensing into a few words what it took me several paragraphs to explain.

  • Schlaack

    Even Darwin believes now.

    • Yes, you’re right! Even Charles Darwin, the founder of the science of evolution, would now have to accept, if he were still alive, that we all have a soul. However, I must point out that this would not make Darwin a “believer.” Spiritual intelligence doesn’t require “belief” in anything. Spiritual intelligence is based on experience, not on belief. When you engage your SQ, you experience yourself as feeling-awareness itself (or as the soul), rather than as your body and mind. By identifying with the soul, you access the spiritual qualities and capabilities of your soul. This is the essence of spiritual intelligence. Belief is therefore not necessary to experience spiritual intelligence. The experience of spiritual intelligence represents knowledge, which does not require belief.

      Belief is what distinguishes religion from spiritual intelligence. Belief goes beyond the evidence. Belief by definition is based on insufficient evidence, because if the evidence was sufficient, belief would be unnecessary. By contrast SQ is thoroughly evidence-based. The evidence for spiritual intelligence is derived from direct personal experience, and is corroborated by the findings of scientific research [ref]. SQ is therefore based on empirical foundations. Thus spiritual intelligence is founded on knowledge, not on belief. Consequently the SQ paradigm represents the science of spirituality [ref]. SQ therefore does not make us “believers.” SQ makes us “knowers.” And what do we know? We know that spirituality is real, and therefore legitimate, and thus not a matter of belief.

      Nevertheless, the point you are making is important. Integral science verifies that science supports spirituality, in contrast to materialist science, which sets science against spirituality [ref]. Therefore, in accordance with the SQ paradigm, which is based on integral science, now scientists and everyone else has to agree that everybody has a soul. Consequently, as an innate dimension of intelligence that everyone can access, SQ represents the foundation of secular spirituality [ref].

  • Michale

    Precisely how did you choose this conclusion? In no way bashing, simply just interested.

    • I didn’t choose this conclusion. My findings are established on the evidence. I did the research and found the evidence, then drew the corresponding conclusions based on the evidence. In other words, my conclusions are a product of the scientific method. If my conclusions were a matter of choice, they wouldn’t count as conclusions. They would merely be personal opinions without supporting evidence. But in fact the SQ paradigm is based on science. For a summary of scientific evidence for spiritual intelligence, see the following article: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

    The usual practice is not to explain the magic formula for free. I read your blog site more or less every day, but you won’t know that because I haven’t left a comment before.

    • Thanks for leaving a comment today. Glad you visit here often. This information belongs to everyone. That’s why it’s free. Everyone needs to understand the basic operating system of their own awareness, represented by the twin poles of attention. Knowing how to navigate between the twin poles of attention is basic training for a happy and productive life. Therefore this is essential knowledge for everyone’s quality of life. Consequently, SQ education is a fundamental human right. It would be unethical to charge people for what they absolutely need to know. Moreover, I did this research for everyone’s sake, not merely for my own sake. Therefore I want to make sure that everyone gets the benefit of my findings, without excluding anyone because they can’t afford to pay.

  • I didn’t choose this conclusion. The evidence resulted in this conclusion. Neither the evidence nor the conclusion was based on a choice. I merely did the research, found the evidence, and the had to draw the corresponding conclusion, based on the evidence I had found.

  • Ayers

    The construction of this article, and it’s contents, is far superior to any others on the same subject prior to this time. I am very much impressed with your writing style and use of terminology.

  • The best explanation I’ve found so far. Having moved from ego to the soul pole, I cannot tell how easy and effortless my life is like now, when I no longer need to look at the world from a purely selfish point of view. People are channels that can bring so much goodness of the Universe through their actions, but those who’re egoistic are like clogged channels, who go against the laws of life.

    • I like how you describe people as channels. By tendency we channel the energy of the ego, by identifying with the body and mind at the object-pole of attention. But we can learn to channel the energy of the soul, by identifying with awareness itself at the subject-pole of attention. You obviously experience this yourself. Thanks for your helpful comment.

  • You have a notable sense of humour. Thanks for telling me you enjoyed the article.

  • Acosta

    Is the notion of opposite poles of attention a new idea? It seems obviously true, but I have never seen it written about anywhere until I read this.

    • The principle of opposite polarities is not new. Opposite polarities show up everywhere, from the structure of the atom, to the functioning of living cells, to the formation of galaxies. The basic building blocks of the universe are defined in opposite polarities, in terms of matter and anti-matter. The principle of opposite polarities is omni-present because it represents a fundamental organising principle of conditional reality. This principle also applies to the basic operating system of human awareness, represented by the twin poles of attention. The location of ego and soul at opposite poles of attention was understood a long time ago, by ancient traditions of spiritual wisdom. However this understanding was traditionally expressed in religious or devotional terms, which masked its secular significance. However, the SQ paradigm defines the opposite poles of attention in evidence-based scientific terms. The following article summarises the scientific evidence: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence. Therefore, in answer to your question, the twin poles of attention represent an ancient understanding explained in contemporary secular language.

    I imagine the large number of comments signifies the level of interest.

    • As you say, the large number of comments on this site shows many people are interested in spiritual intelligence. The main reasons for the popularity of this topic seem to be the following:

      1. As an innate dimension of intelligence, SQ represents a secular form of spirituality that everyone can access. SQ therefore meets the widespread need for a contemporary form of spirituality that is compatible with present day post-religious culture. More.. The Spritual Intelligence Paradigm

      2. SQ provides access to deeper meaning and purpose, and is therefore the source of personal fulfilment, and the means of high performance. More.. The Benefits of Spirituali Intelligence

      3. The evidence for spiritual intelligence is convincing, because it rests on direct personal experience, as confirmed by peer-reviewed findings from four independent fields of scientific research. More.. The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence

      4. SQ represents a millennial paradigm shift that supersedes both paradigms of the previous two millennia. Consequently SQ is emerging as the new paradigm of the third millennium. More.. The New Paradigm of the Third Millennium

      5. As the next step-up in productivity growth, corporate spiritual training is the next big thing. Companies have tried everything up to now to increase productivity, except spirituality. Finally companies are getting the message that their employees are people. and therefore they have human needs for deeper meaning and purpose. More.. 3Q Training

      6. SQ represents the wisdom of the ages expressed in contemporary scientific terms. Ancient secrets are no longer secrets. The SQ paradigm represents the discoveries of the world’s great traditions of spirituality, as confirmed by the modern scientific research. More.. Secular Spirituality

      7. As the key to cooperation, tolerance, and peace, SQ represents a sustainable future for all. More.. The Full Spectrum of Intelligence

      Thirdly, SQ represents a millennial paradigm shift, that supersedes both paradigms of the previous two millennia [ref]. Consequently SQ is emerging as the new paradigm of the third millennium. For these 3 main reasons, this topic is attracting great interest from all sides.

  • W Porfirio

    I was so undecided about this whole subject until I read your article. Persuasion must be one of your gifts, as you have presented a convincing alternative to anything I have read.

  • Nicky Strickland

    This original content is out of the ordinary. I appreciate that you’ve gone off the beaten path with your points and I agree with most.

  • Acosta

    Is the idea of the twin poles of attention a new thing? It seems obviously true, but I have never seen it written anywhere until I read this.

    • Opposite polarity is a fundamental organising principle of conditional reality. The principle of opposite polarity operates everywhere at every level, from the formation of galaxies, to electro-magnetism, to the operation of living cells, to the structure of the atom. The principle of opposite polarity is all-pervasive. So it’s no surprise to discover that opposite polarity also characterises the fundamental operating system of human awareness, represented by the twin poles of attention. The location of ego and soul at opposite poles of attention was understood a long time ago by ancient traditions of spiritual wisdom. However, it was traditionally expressed in devotional terms that masked its secular significance. The SQ paradigm defines the twin poles of attention for the first time in secular terms, based on the findings of scientific research. See this article for a summary of the scientific foundations of spiritual intelligence: The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

  • F Chapman

    It has been a very long time since we have seen anything written like this article. Obviously, creative and enthusiastic writing is not gone forever.

  • Carson

    Why can’t more writers come up with fresh content like you have in this article? You are a true thinker with a lot of vision. I share your unique thoughts.

  • T Petty

    Reading this article really made me think. This is good quality information that anyone should be able to understand and use. Your ideas are valid and I agree with you.

  • Wilton

    Please don’t ever stop writing informative content like this. I think you are a star writer. I agree with your content on nearly every point.

  • Carrol

    To produce an article on such a critical subject has needed to be done for years. I’m glad you took a stand to put your beliefs and ideals out there.

    • I’m glad you appreciate this summary of the basic operating system of human awareness, represented by the twin poles of attention. You added that you are glad I expressed my “beliefs and ideals.” However, I would like to clarify that this information is not based on beliefs and ideals. It is based on facts and evidence. This article communicates the facts and evidence for spiritual intelligence, not beliefs and ideals about SQ. This is a very important distinction. This distinction between belief and knowledge is the difference between religion and spirituality.

  • Gyl

    I believe information is what makes the world go around. Without it, we would wander around aimlessly without direction. Your content is a great informational piece with very valid points.

  • Milford

    I’ve never seen descriptive terminology used in this fashion before. I have definitely learned much from the reading and the thought provoking ideas used in this article.

  • Tyrell

    My ideas were somewhat different from the writer’s until I read this well-written and documented set of real facts supplied in this article. Thank you.

  • Stanton

    I’ve see a lot of articles with poorly written and confusing content on this subject. It’s nice to see that you have a knack for writing engaging content that’s clear, interesting and smart. Good job.

  • Columbus

    Great job on this material! This changed my thought processes on this subject. You really are a compelling writer with a flair for informational content.

  • Toland

    Your site is wonderful. This distinctive article is fantastic. I definitely hope more people read this and understand what you are saying, because it is necessary info.

    • I appreciate your comment about this info being necessary. That’s absolutely right. Everyone needs the self-awareness to understand the basic operating principles of their own consciousness. It’s a fundamental quality of life issue. The absence of self-awareness is not simply a personal problem, it’s also a social problem. And it represents a social problem on a global scale. Education in spiritual intelligence is therefore essential, not only for the sake of everyone individually, but also for the sake of society as a whole. Consequently SQ education represents not only a fundamental human right, but also a global imperative. So I was glad to read your comment about everyone needing this understanding. You expressed hope that more people will read this and understand. Above you will find buttons for sharing this site with others. If you help by sharing spiritual intelligence, everyone will owe you a debt of gratitude.

  • Malik

  • Alfonzo

    Your content is full of solid information that is usable by today’s readers. I am impressed with your different points and how you present them so clearly. You’re very talented.

  • Keven Harrison

    Must have taken a long time to research this amazing content! I can’t imagine the focus and patience it took to put this information together.

    • Strangely enough, it wasn’t patience that kept me focused, it was impatience! I was driven by a need to understand. My life depended on it. I couldn’t rest until I had researched and tested all sources and methods and dimensions of knowing reality. The unrelenting drive to understand kept me focused over decades of research in a variety of disciplines, including philosophy, theology, psychology, anthropology, comparative religion, world spirituality, history, the arts, and world literature. I had to do this research for myself, to answer my own questions, but I also felt an obligation to share my findings with everyone. The result is the SQ Education Program. My research wasn’t confined to book learning alone. I tested my discoveries in my own experience, as a psychologist and spiritual practitioner. That’s why this research took over three decades. The stages of my research are described in the post entitled Journey of Spiritual Growth. My sources are summarised in the post entitled The Psychology of Spiritual Intelligence.

  • Judson

    It is a pleasure to find a writer like you that seems to care a lot about the content you write. I love this material and how you have made your views so clear and concise.

    • Thank you. It’s a pleasure to find readers who appreciate the care I take. This subject demands dedication to the highest standards. These are matters of life and death. It’s necessary to be thorough and precise in order to do justice to the importance of the subject matter, and to do justice to my readers.

  • Malcom Galloway

    I truly appreciate interesting material like this. This is a great article. Your points are presented in a unique way and the content is well-written. I really enjoyed reading this.

  • Tobias

    This article is a great example of good quality content. It’s a well-written, interesting article that explains important topics in a simple way.

  • I appreciate your comment about taking the time to get this right. Before publishing my findings, I felt it was incumbent upon me to thoroughly research my sources and thoroughly test my conclusions, based not only on the scientific evidence and on academic study, but also on my personal experience. This subject is too important to be treated with anything less than the utmost commitment to accuracy. Consequently, my work on the SQ paradigm, which represents a synthesis of psychology and spirituality, required many years of investigation, both as a practising psychologist and as a spiritual practitioner. That’s why this research took over three decades.

  • Anibal Ward

    I have to give your article a top rating. This is well-written, beneficial content that exceeds the work of other writers. You are a true talent.

  • Asa Tauranga

    You’ve gone to a lot of effort doing your homework with this article and it shows. More writers should take the time to get their point across in a clear and concise way. Thank you.

  • Sherman

    I’m glad I discovered your article. Your writing is so thought-provoking, I’m sure I will think about this content for a while. Really good content.

  • The whole new arena of thought you have discovered represents a new paradigm, in the form of secular spirituality. The foundation of secular spirituality is our innate capability for spiritual intelligence. So you have discovered the SQ paradigm.

  • Gino

    Good writing skills are only part of good writing. It’s obvious that you have these skills, but you also have a special flair. Great work!

  • Peatman

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that I have read your blog and liked it so much. I want to share your blog with my friends. I come to your site fairly regularly, and I guess since I like reading your blog, others will too.

  • Aldon Smith

    Seriously, beautiful posting.

  • Rohit

    It is my first-time visiting here. I came across lots of helpful stuff on your website, particularly the ongoing discussion in the comments.

  • Toland

    Your site is wonderful. This distinctive article is fantastic. I definitely hope more people read this and understand what you are saying, because it is necessary info.

    • I appreciate your comment about this info being necessary. That’s absolutely right. Everyone needs to understand how their own consciousness works. It’s a fundamental quality of life issue. When people don’t understand the basic operating principles of their own awareness, it’s more than merely a personal problem at the individual level, it’s also a social problem. Moreover, it represents a social problem on a global scale. Education in spiritual intelligence is therefore essential, not only for the sake of everyone individually, but also for the sake of society as a whole at the institutional level. So I was glad to read your comment about everyone needing this understanding. The more people who recognise the need for education in spiritual intelligence, the sooner SQ education will be recognised as a fundamental human right, and therefore as a global imperative. I’m glad you want more people to read this and understand. There are sharing buttons above which make it easy for you to share this site with others. Thank you for helping to share spiritual intelligence.

  • Len

    hi…. is this true?????????????????????????????? if it is OMG

    • Yes it’s true. But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can verify this information for yourself. How does it feel to experience yourself at the subject-pole of attention, instead of at the object-pole of attention? That means to experience yourself, not as your body and mind, but as feeling-awareness itself (or the soul). SQ is the intelligence of your soul. This video shows how to use this method to experience your spiritual intelligence. Watch the video here

  • I’m glad that’s how you feel. Thanks for telling me. I’m also delighted by the same thing that delights you. The delight of knowing for sure that existence is about love and joy and peace, despite all appearances to the contrary, and that fundamentally you are love and joy and peace. This is the delight of the soul, which is experienced in spiritual intelligence.

    There are other SQ delights too. The delight of realising that spirituality is not mere wishful thinking, or a projection of the human need for reassurance. The delight of realising that the soul is real, and that the soul can be experienced. The delight of realising that the soul is your true self. The delight of knowing who you really are. The delight of learning this easy method to experience your soul. The delight of realising that delight is totally justified without the slightest qualification! The delight of realising how simple it all is.

  • Stephe Dietl

    Old hippies never die, they just surrender to society.

    • On the contrary, old hippies don’t surrender, we adapt! SQ represents an adaptation in modern terms of ancient spiritual wisdom. Consequently, the SQ paradigm makes spirituality accessible from within the framework of contemporary secular culture. SQ therefore represents not surrender to society, but social transformation.

    Uncovering this blog made everything I did appear to be nothing at all. The reason being that this is a very informative site. I needed to say thanks to the author for this interesting research into the area. My spouse and i positively savored each and every bit of it, and i saved you as a favorite to check back again for new items you publish.

  • Kuberski

    
Most of us have overlooked this core idea. Your understanding of this subject matter is exactly what I needed to clarify things. Thank you so much.


  • Lamielle

    You may not intended to do so, but I think you have managed to address the state of mind that a lot of people are in. The sense of wanting to help, but not knowing exactly how, is something quite a lot of us are going through.

    • I recognise the desire to help that you are talking about. As you said, many people share this impulse, but may be unsure about how to help people in the most effective way. Educating people in SQ is a great way to help. The SQ map of attention identifies the basic operating system of human awareness, by means of which we can access our full human capabilities. Moreover, since SQ is evidence-based and faith-neutral, it is compatible with contemporary mainstream culture. Thus education in spiritual intelligence can help a lot of people.

  • Faustino Rivers

    This is a very informative article. You really got my attention with your poignant views. I read and examined your content thoroughly and discovered new ways to think about this topic. I respect your ability.

    • I’m pleased you discovered new ways to think about this topic. However, it’s not sufficient merely to understand spiritual intelligence with your thinking mind. It’s also necessary to experience your spiritual intelligence. Unless you know how to experience SQ, you can’t apply SQ in your life, and gain its benefits. This video provides step-by-step instructions on how to experience SQ intentionally.

  • McCleve

    Only just stumbled upon this excellent website by another site and I have to say it’s overwhelming. Really good article. Will keep this website in my favorite bookmarks without a doubt. Cheers
