In this section, we will define consciousness in the context of an Operative Philosophy™ by offering practical exercises and a training program for developing willpower and for achieving personal success.
HypsoConsciousness as part of an Operative Philosophy™ refers to the level of consciousness, (from the Greek hypso meaning high).
What really differentiates us humans from the other animals is our consciousness. It is what permits us to reflect and understand our own actions, to get to know our inner world and the world around us.
Similar to temperature, where a degree of temperature is either a degree of cold or heat, the degrees on the scale of consciousness go from sleep to vigilance, with zero representing biological sleep.
Most people accept that there are several levels of sleep. However, few ever consider that there are also degrees of profound vigilance, meaning that people can be more or less awake in their everyday activities, and this will directly influence how they perceive the world around them. The higher the level of vigilance or the more awake, the more accurate will be our view of reality. Therefore, our possibilities for success will be greater.
People usually believe they are awake simply because they have awakened from biological sleep. However, there is another state of vigilance, one that is more difficult to recognize, but which refers to the level of efficiency of the mind and brain.
Next, we will lead you to different kinds of exercises designed to raise your level of consciousness: breathing, motor re-education and concentration. Each area is made up of concept description, exercises and a training program, so that you can practice and experiment with the results.
We invite you to practice HypsoConsciousness since it will improve your levels of efficiency and internal peace in daily life. They are simple exercises and won't take you more than five minutes at most.
