Spheres of Personal Uniqueness

Uniqueness has a Concentric Structure

The self that requires strength and has to be controlled is uniquely my own: it is me. So it is my existential responsibility. The 6 Dyads are mantras for self-control that can provide me with strength to handle this responsibility.

On close inspection, the Dyads reveal that «my unique self» manifests as 6 Spheres of Personal Uniqueness organized concentrically, progressively encompassing each other.
Closed Where did this framework come from?

The Framework of Personal Spheres is as follows:

Sphere #1Daily Activities
Sphere #2Reference Points
Sphere #3Social Happenings
Sphere #4Social Relationships
Sphere #5Personal Intentionality
Sphere #6The Cosmos

There is evidence that these Spheres define uniqueness in that they are the standard information demanded by government bureaucracies worldwide when they want to identify who is completing a form (e.g. entering a country, applying for a permit).

The 6 Spheres of Your Operations

A summary matrix of the findings is at the bottom of this Topic.

Sphere #1 of Daily Activities : Intrapersonal

You perform a myriad of activities in a variety of endeavours. However, your occupation is dominant in this Sphere, and preferably an outlet for your creativity. If you do what you love (G"21), then you will feel strong, and be able to do the myriad of other things that life demands of you on a daily basis.

Sphere #2 of Reference Points : Intrapersonal

You can get some control over unavoidable social indoctrination and group pressures by being ready to question beliefs, whether religious, scientific or popular. In any case, you must orient yourself in a complex and confusing world as best you can. A philosophy of life can provide you with overarching guidance. To be strong in any particular arena or specific situation, it is necessary to reach the truth (G"22), That truth is what provides you with a point or frame of reference.

Sphere #3 of Social Happenings : Interpersonal

How an event impacts on you is based on how you understand it. Mostly events are constructed as narratives (or stories). The most significant events form history. An amorphous story or a lack of historical perspective may leave you vulnerable. To be strong in relation to any event, it is necessary to give an account (G"23) of it that helps you, and others who are also affected.

Sphere #4 of Social Relationships : Interpersonal

Everyone manages their relationships, whether superficial, friendly or intimate. Amongst all relationships, the family is dominant. Handling feelings in relationships is dependent on empathy, and is commonly difficult. To be strong within any relationship, it is necessary to be of service (G"24) to the other and meet needs, small and large. If you only think about serving yourself, you will weaken your relationships and that weakens you.

Sphere #5 of Personal Intentionality : Transpersonal

We experience intentionality as ours to create. But once created, purposes become commitments and their quality is determined by the goodness that is applied. The most significant purposes in our life are expressed as a Primal Quest that shapes other commitments. To be strong within the Sphere of Intentionality, you must stay the course (G"25) and refuse to abandon a goal without sound, relevant and impersonal reasons.

Sphere #6 of The Cosmos : Transpersonal

The highest Sphere of uniquensss, The Cosmos, is filled with the mysteries inherent in every moment. It includes our embodiment as well as our surrounding physical realities. It also includes experiences, like dreams and images, that enter us and may not make any particular sense. The only way to engage with mysteries is via the imagination. To be strong within the cosmic sphere, you must accept reality (G"26).

Note that the Sphere of the Self is a system and all systems are defined by their Content and Context. The Engagement Method refers to how your awareness deals with both content and context.
