“Attitude” (Latin, ‘Aptus,’ appropriate) is a self-created mental entity frozen in a posture, possessing a self-chosen Disposition. That Posture reflects, not on Trigger Situation actualities, but rather on the distorting colored lens one uses to view it. The Disposition–being a display of its Essence inside a Thought Structure and wrapped in a strong emotion—is an enduring emotionally based inclination and intention—both having obstinacy as its strength–both predisposing one to behave in a certain way. That Disposition is the result of a cascade series of Pre-disposing, Precipitating, and Immediate Causes that followed a Trigger Event’s alteration of ones Pre-existing state of Being. Whether applied to any given Spiritual or Secular Pre-existing Entity, these processes share, for good or bad, similar principles. A Spiritual Pre-existing state of Being example is a pre-birth “human-to-be”. As an initial Spirit Entity, from that state of Origin, and after Earthly birth, ones Free Will cultivates its Real Self-Identity or sets off a cascade leading to a False Self-Identity. Ones continued birth Selfhood Greatness self-improvement or ones False Self self-ordering may be from a “big bang” or small accumulations—e.g. correctly/incorrectly understanding a portion of a life’s plan, problem, situation, person, event, custom, and/or proposed solutions. These and others bring about changes which produce activity serving as the ‘rising’ of a series of Causes. That progression may be arranged in some sort of ‘Skeletal Organization”–like rungs on a ladder going from the Earth to the Heavens or like stepping stones ordered from start to finish. Each stepping stone Cause initiates or enhances an ever enlarging payload. Its specifics are about the Essence of its creator imparting processes inside the Disposition.
This Spiritual entity is a macrocosm for significant Seculars. In Attitude developments, ones Pre-existing state also occurs from “big bang” and/or Cumulative (small things) collections. From this Origin, resultant cascades are set in motion as a series of hard pounding and spreading forces. First, the eroding (wear away) and corroding (gnaw away) of one Pre-existing state by involved Predisposing Cause(s) makes one so susceptible to an attitudeas for one to begin the formation of a “Disposition”. Evolving internal reactions from mounting cascade net-works arising out of the Predisposing Cause(s), in turn, start producing out-puts serving as in-puts for the next component series in each network. Next are Precipitating Cause(s)—those new conditions piling on to fill-in ongoing erosion and corrosion gaps to thereby hasten settling of mosaic pieces into an Attitude pattern. This Pattern’s formation and “growth” are from like-kind mental views made by “big bang”/cumulative personal or vicarious experiences. They are manifestations of reflections of ones interpretations of the monitored feedback gathered from outside influences as well as ones reactions to those interpretations. This takes on such prominence in ones mind as for one to be so sensitive that any little thing will light the match which ignites an Attitude stick of dynamite. The resultant explosion–called the Immediate Cause—is what gives rise to the Attitude’s Posture and Disposition. The Disposition’s contents include: (1) the accumulation into its pattern the sum of all prior experiences one has accepted to be real—together with the Causes which produced them; (2) all that has happened and/or is happening to generate Effects and their Consequences; and (3) the happened Results as well as all one anticipates as being capable of happening. Each of these has come about by several prior judgments which, despite each being independent, all operate interdependently to form an Attitudinal “big picture’.
The Inclination is what turns the mind in a particular mental Postural direction so it can settle into a physical-like "leaning toward" or “leaning” away from something. The Inclination powers an Intention—i.e. what one means to do, with an aim toward a specific action or a specific goal. The “payload” power of the Intention may be mild or slight in which one remains inactive; or it may be moderate or extreme and thereby urge one to take action. If that action is powered by Spiritual Energy, one persists in it until the task is completed. However, if orchestrated by a False Self, Emotional Energy is used and that means the job will not be completed. Spiritual Elements’ people create a thriving life of well-being; any other type does not. A benefit in understanding all of this is that humans can design their own life by the nature of the Attitudes each selects. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
