The science of Systemics - The beauty of unified inter-relations creating wholeness

Systemics: Principles


The science of systemics is the science of the hologram, of the fractal, of the link between part and whole, between microcosm and macrocosm. It's the awareness that the part and the whole mean the same thing, like the drop of water and the ocean!


This science is the bearer of love, i.e. the bearer of an understanding of the value of each individual, whether they are aware of it or not! It leads us to define the human being within nature as an element in its own right, with a unique role to play like all the elements of which nature is made up. The human being, in his feminine aspect, is aware of his belonging to the greater whole, and in his masculine aspect, he is aware of his unique role to play, asserting his precious leadership, his own value.


To allow the emergence of these two parts of the human being, one thing is necessary: a favorable environment, as in nature for the growth of a seed.



Systemics in human interaction: the need for rules 


This is built through the establishment of rules. They are ideally objective and clear, transmissible and discernible by the group, as clearly as the rule of silence is easy for children to understand and monitor.


Personal and collective rules organize the forces of consciousness. They bring a sense of security and playfulness, and provide a framework for creativity. Without rules, without criteria, without objectivity, how can we differentiate between creativity that is useful for the whole and expression that is essential for oneself?


Let's take an example of a rule, that of the talking stick in circle meetings. An important rule is that the speaker should not be interrupted, and that no one should react to his or her words, to avoid triggering a mental ping pong. In this way, all participants experience a freedom, a space, a welcome, a kindness that enables them to share and express the reality of their experience. It's a non-judgmental space where the heart of the experience lies in the container, not the content.


Mirroring of the soul: the basic rule at IRESOI


The Mirroring of the soul is first and foremost an attitude: it's the desire to look first at the other person's "being of light", i.e. the qualities in them that touch our hearts, and to express them with others.


Only then can we look at the facets that we feel need improvement and which, whether we are aware of it or not, are intrinsically linked to the qualities of the person. If we can't see the link between qualities and vulnerabilities, it would ideally be better to say nothing yet and discover this link first; because pointing out uncontrolled behaviours in the other without proposing an inspiring and evolving framework of understanding doesn't facilitate acceptance and the desire for change.


We put this attitude into practice in a small group, often of 3, 4 or 5 people, where we take it in turns to practice expressing our impressions of the qualities of the other participants according to a set process. This mirroring process, repeated week after week, creates an astonishing synergy between the members of the small group and allows a new vision of oneself to emerge thanks to this loving, objective and repeated gaze. A surprising transformation takes place in this atmosphere, supported by a facilitator who has himself gone through the process before, revealing aspects of ourselves that we might have imagined or that remained deeply buried inside ourselves, waiting to be revealed. The Mirroring of the Soul is a kind of relational yoga, and as with any yoga or inner path, it only takes on its full dimension with time and practice.



A good approach to reflection: Truth is beautiful!


When we say the truth is beautiful, we're defining the truth as an ideal to be attained that we won't reach, but which will help us know if we're going in the right direction! The challenge is to agree to take the time needed to build this more beautiful truth and to include other points of view, which significantly increases the work.


E.g.: we feel deeply that an expressed point of view isn't right, and in the name of this inner feeling we're ready to confront it, even to destroy it all, even though there are surely good and useful elements in the point of view that irritates us. This is the principle of the sacred value of which we are the guardians. This responsibility gives us an inner right to do everything, even at the risk of our lives, to preserve it.


Now, if we create a space to resolve this situation, this conflict, this suffering, then we must start from the premise that a precious element lies within each of us and demands to be identified in order to rediscover mutual understanding, harmony, beauty, i.e. expressions of truth.


Hence the need to ask for forgiveness, but here in a new perspective! We ask forgiveness for not yet having been able to discover that precious element in the other's point of view, which would have prevented the problem or confrontation from arising. A problem calls for a solution, a problem underlines that a solution is emerging from non-existence in consciousness. It heralds an awakening, an evolution, a liberation!



Systemics applied to the human experience of suffering


This is the systemic view of tension, of a problem, of suffering: it's a necessary passage for inner transformation that can't be achieved on its own, it's a reality created by our personal and/or collective subconscious for the growth of the being or beings.


It's the pain of growing teeth. Conventional wisdom tells us to be patient, but doesn't necessarily give us the keys to changing our outlook, our mental attitude to the situation. These keys are given to us by symbolism and analogy.


It's the Ho'oponopono concept of "I'm connected to this problem, even if it doesn't seem like it at all", so I have to be sorry, ask for forgiveness, love this opportunity for evolution offered by life and give thanks in advance for the gifts it contains.


This link with any problem is explained by the fractal reality of matter. Everything is in everything.



Wishes for the world


What does humanity need most today? A truth that is not just right for one or the other, which could lead to a kind of fanaticism, but right for the whole, which requires collective work and invites everyone's participation.


Finding this truth, truly truthful, would require all members concerned to be fully united and, above all, mutually aware of each other's value in the construction of this group truth. We could give the image that the color white can only appear in the collective consciousness if all the colors have been identified. If one colour is missing, white cannot appear in consciousness. This stage therefore implies a level of awareness and maturity, a willingness to participate in the identification of each individual's role, which requires a real individual journey. Hence the need for a certain amount of time before the critical threshold is reached and the collective paradigm shift takes place.
