IN REFERENCE TO THE
PECULIARITIES OF HUMAN
BEHAVIOUR.

It may be unlikely that many people will benefit from these notes. It will probably go in one ear
and out the other, and they will go on in much the same way as before. One may have too many other
things to do; can't be bothered; fail to understand it; find it boring, or one may fail to see any importance in
it. (SAD). This is so typical of human beings in action. But there will be exceptions who can perceive that
the conceptions of the mind will expand if the will to seek wisdom is cultivated; and by the use of practice,
the application of self controlled expression will consequently become more and more effective.
At times, we may all feel annoyed by the frustrating fact that humans are so reluctant to absorb
new concepts or to extend their present ones. How people already express, seems to be their dominating
feature, and their static mental status disallows them from thinking or expressing any differently.
What we were conditioned to be as children, will predominate in our expressions as adults. This is
the bone of contention that should attract our most intense contemplation.
The adverse side and the shortcomings of humans are usually the most obvious and observed
features that we see in each other, but we are somewhat reluctant to see many if any adverse traits or
failings in ourselves. How we see others is an external observation, but how we see ourselves is only
speculation based on what we think we are.
Our minds seem to support and defend our own reasoning and actions.
Most of the subject matter in these notes delve into the adverse or negative side of human
behaviour, so highlighting the aspects that we should become aware of. From this, some people may derive
an insight that may lead them towards a better understanding of human behaviour, and how to develop the
wisdom to direct their own. It is the control of our own behaviour within the influences around us that
determines the outcome. We should not try to control others in an attempt to determine an end, but to learn
to control ourselves, and to do this regardless of the intrinsic obstacles and any brain conditioning to the
contrary that may impede us.
Most people react from some inner compulsion; this may be partly due to the conditioned state of
our conceptions, and partly from inherent genetic traits.
Generally, people do know how to conduct themselves, but they are seldom able to apply what
they know; this results from the fact that the mind becomes occupied by the situations of the moment, and
what we know about self control becomes buried or swamped, and is not at this time available to the
awareness, therefore it can not be used when it is needed, so resulting in inappropriate expression.
Ironically, if our expressions are challenged, then we may instantly defend ourselves or self-justify
and develop bad attitudes. There seems to be no avenue from which this peculiar trait can be modified.
Most of us just go on going on. We remain somewhat benighted, (hold on to outworn traditions, views,
ideas and principles), but few of us do anything about it.
The text herein is an endeavour to awaken the awareness of young people and also adults to the
powers of the mind, and to outline the benefits that this may have on the quality of life within the home and
within society. Many books which are written on this subject, tell you what to do, or give examples based
on individual dilemmas, where the solutions may only apply for this individual. This book attempts to
provide guidance as food for thought, from which you can expand your own concepts and decide your
