A much diluted and illustrative representation of the actual Human GPS System of Life.

In general terms the abbreviation GPS stands for the Global Positioning Satellite system that we use to “pin point” our geographical position on this planet of ours. However, G P S - in a AltanaESP context - refers to our personal Generic Positioning Believe System, which is an integrated and cumulative combination of our knowledge reference structures, beliefs, norms, values, expectations, hopes and dreams that we use to “pin point” our current standing relative to our future position or space (i.e. a synergy between our expectations or vision) and intended progress (i.e. our future plans or mission) in life.

Seen within this context, we deploy our GPS to determine where we are now in life and where we would like to be in future. We apply our GPS coordinates - either on a conscious, subconscious or unconscious level of awareness - to develop, initiate and act on a number of possible or alternative strategies to gradually evolve towards and eventually reach our destiny (i.e. gradually manifest our dreams as reality).

Our GPS - as with plenty of other dynamics of our umwelt - also have two sides to the same coin, which may or may not result in a cognitive dissonance and our own personal Newton's Cradle trap (or differently put… our personal hell), which mainly surface via our environmental noise filterforcing” as to often say/preach/mean one thing, and actually do another. The key opposing “GPS coordinates” of basic reference can be indicated and described as follows…

Our GPS is the inner map that we create, compile and update consistently as we progres through life, experience the world around us and perceive our reality. Our GPS is the fundamental and source point of references that we use to navigate and negotiate the current circumstances that we are confronted with. The efficiency of our navigation (i.e. our subsequent behaviours and actions) is mainly determined by our emotional maturity status and the inclination of whether we are inclined to either react or respond to obstacles that we encounter in life.
