Contextualizing and Context Maintenance

Our daily lives consist of many different functional environments… a family environment, the school environment, our place of work, training, religion, …etc. Context and environment can be regarded - within the AltanaESP framework of services - as symbiotic synonyms which implies the variety of operational and functional areas of our life in which we need to interact, develop, establish and sustain harmonious relationships, allowing us to pursue and sustain a meaningful and purposeful life .

Environments are the “places or habitats” (i.e. a specific time and space) in which we - by choice - could deliver our contribution to make life just a bit more bearable - for ourselves and those around us - than it was before. Sadly though… the opposite is equally as possible and we might deliver - also by choice - a contribution to our present environment that might make life a frustration and quite unbearable for ourselves and others around us. When we disregard contextplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigThe circumstances that form the foundation for an event, statement or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood. , the latter almost always tends to manifest more prominently and result in disharmony more often than harmony, mainly as an outcome of psyche wounds because things aren't sufficientlyplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigI.e. adequate for the purpose ...enough (sufficient proof; sufficient protection)... in such a way that its existence leads to the occurrence of a given event or the existence of a given thing. contextualized.

However, things ain't always as simple as it may appear at first glance. When we want to establish, obtain and maintain a harmonious environmental fit, the eventual “harmony” of our interactions not only depends on the power of now; but also on the “health” of our personal umwelt. Thus, in the NOW everything may seem to be working fine, but our umweltplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigOur beliefs, points of view, perspectives, attitudes, mindset, unconscious motives, feelings, emotions, experiences, ...etc. impact on our current reality, which can either nourish, enhance, prevent, demolish or implode productive interactions and a harmonious environmental fit.

Different environments require different responses from us, as “dictated” by the context of that particular environment to sustain a harmonious environmental fit and maintain a healthy balance in live.

For example… The teaching methodology of primary school learners should focus on mastering basic learning skillsplugin-autotooltip__smallReading, writing and arithmetic., rather than focusing on developing expert mathematical abilities, as the case would be with secondary school learners. Which in turn, would also differ significantly from a learning environment on a college or university level.
