The philosophy we at PMC have is based on the underlying Three Principles which are the foundation of all human psychological functioning. These Three Principles were first realized by Syd Banks, a man with a 9th grade education who grew up to work in a steel factory and later had a profound transformative experience finding these psychological truths. The Three Principles are now taught in schools, major corporations, families, communities, drug/alcohol treatment centers, department of corrections and to individuals all over the world.
Our belief is very different than the traditional medical model or self-improvement model where you identify the problem, get help, get into the problem really work on it, analyze it in order to overcome it and change. Change in this model is hard and takes a great deal of time and effort. The assumptions is “the time it took to get into this situation will be at least as much if not more to get out of it”. We believe the road to health is much simpler and see everyone having the health, wisdom and common sense in them ready to be actualized at any moment. Understanding that thought is the source of all human experience, causes experience to shift. This understanding cannot come from the intellect, it is a deep faith and acceptance in not knowing.
By exploring the way reality is shaped by pointing to the principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness, the inner wisdom that lies within you will be drawn to the surface bringing with it a feeling of health, hope and happiness, free from analysis, judgments and old habits developed through conditioned thought. This process is not intended to eliminate the ups and downs of life but rather to show you how you can go through those ups and downs without being negatively affected by them. You will be amazed how gaining this simple understanding will allow you to move more naturally, freely and effortlessly through life beyond the strategies of merely coping. Realizing that anguish and happiness are only one thought away provides all that is needed to change.
Syd Banks once said, “We have the most wonderful job in the world. We find people in various stages of sleep. And then we get to tap them on the shoulder and be with them as they wake up to the full magnificence of life.”
