MINDSET – Conclusion

At this point, you should be very cognizant of the seven dimensions for self-observation and knowledge and their mutually interactive nature. You may at any time continue to use template 3a to observe and know yourself at any moment of any situation. However, in the following steps of the method, we will be combining templates from previous steps. Thus, start practicing for a few days or weeks with the following template 3c, which combines PEACE elements and MINDSET dimensions.

Template Instructions

Use the template as follows: Choose a moment in any situation, give it a name and write that name at the top of the template under “Name of Situation.” Then, at the bottom of the template in the semibox entitled “PEACE,” transcribe the PEACE elements you have listed previously as your general definition of happiness. Then observe the moment and describe your experience of it, dimension by dimension, next to the corresponding boxes of the template. However, before you do this, bear in mind your PEACE elements and, importantly, evidence which dimensions would be conducive to happiness and which would be non-conducive. Record the dimension that is conducive to happiness next to the corresponding box on the right and the dimension that is non-conducive to happiness next to the corresponding box on the left. Do this exercise several times until it becomes very natural and easy.

Let’s review how to use the 3c.MINDSET template.
