“The Dynamics of Experience and How We Develop”By Robben Wainer
1.Growing up with all of it's defiance and mundane rebellious attributes, I felt I was nourished to  be a creative type, with an abundance of self seeking. I can remember how the statue of The Thinker. By ichelangelo held in!it's repose the symbol for how one may address the moral conflicts we are confronted with. I can remember being amidst crowds where it seemed everyone was in a hurry to e"press their voice, and have their voice heard. Growing up in this left!wing radical environment, thoughts of being a writer, a poet, a dancer, and a musician were the most stimulating to my point of focus. This wayward drifting that began in my teens needed to find it's roots in the #arth. To this day I find that practice of contemplation helps me alliterate a philosophical perspective, that is based very much on deciphering pride from ignorance.In this paper I will be discussing #"perience as a sub$ect from varying view points. I will try to show how feelings come to the surface to define the measures of which we credit our most essential attributes, and of which we attribute our most deliberate actions, and non!actions, and passive resistance. To begin this paper I will be e"amining e"perience from the stand point of belief systems,  belief systems, and that which is built on faith. %ere I am making the point that faith, or becoming faithful is an e"perience which draws nearly everyone to it's door with the hopes of finding restitution. In defining faith as something that we e"perience, I declare that faith is akin to the need for self acceptance. It is the ability to perceive ones self in a great struggle, perhaps of inner conflict that finds it's reassuring foundation in concepts that are both universal, of service, and perpetuate a positive influence in that acts of faith which can be defined in so many way confirm that we are awake. I will use here as a sign of courage certain principles that can help us broaden our understanding of faith. &ne is that it achieves a balance, by understanding the incentives for which accomplishments are made.
.(nother being what )ung terms as the anima and animus when referring to *uestions of the heart that deeply effect and respond to our psyche. In this brief coverage I will show how the formation of inbred character traits can help us to shine light on that which is bundled in confusion, or that which separates the image of self from human nature. +inally, I would like to make the point that faith is an act of contrition that is bound in self love, and self forgiveness so that the moral issues that show elements of such *ualities as degradation and victimiation in another form may lead to an epiphany that begins our awakening, when we decide we can use this information to determine who we are in relation to the social and inter!personal values that are congruent to moral values.%ow then does faith lead to our e"perience of belief and the transference of these values and  principles to show $ust cause for addressing our understanding of concepts and ideas. &ur belief systems are those that help us to form our identities by answering our *uestions, or by delivering a solution as to how to proceed with the principles that define our inclinations and incentives. -e e"perience beliefs by resolving conflict, in that we gain an understanding of the elements that help to align our method of understanding them with a clear and decipherable motivation that shape our  perceptions of our own identity. In this pivotal role in which the transference of emotion conveys the message that affirms our struggle, we are accepting that our roles, our motivation, and our calling to be of service, provide the foundation on which we can clearly see that gain insight into the emotional sphere of perception, be it based on past, present or future, or be they from memory say from a distant  past, define for us those circumstances that are favorable for establishing a perspective, as to the condition of our own well being in relation to human nature. Thus we e"perience belief as inclusive of faith based motivations, to ascribe to our conduct a proper use of the will, that is seen in a formidable response to our own growth and development, and can be ascribed to having moral values and  principles.
.I would now like to e"amine our e"perience as it relates to our character traits. &ur character traits being how we respond to personal interaction, and the response we give when in the situations of e"pressing ourselves at times when we must communicate. &ur character traits determine our  personality composition. -e e"perience our character traits in relationship to how successful we are at e"pressing ourselves. &ur character traits stem from a wide range of successes and failures, assets, liabilities, virtues and defects. /ome see our character traits as deriving from an inheritance of what we are given to believe about our own ability to cope in given situations. They define our emotional attachments and the decisions we make that are based on factors of ego and survival. &ne may say they have an over ealous nature, that is they give into the emotions that preside and those that are at their strongest. The character traits we present are our form of self e"pression, in the sense that they depend upon an understanding of given situations that occur in the past, present or future, as a way of asserting their ability to show feelings, and emotions in a way that does not remove us from our *uality of human growth and potential. &ur character traits also e"press themselves in how well we are able to ad$ust to the workings of our egos in that our ability to function, or even perform tasks that are essential to our well being determine how we will perceive the factors that contribute to our own perceptions about the lives we live.&ur character traits are based on our raw emotional responses as we e"perience different levels of anger, fear, $ealousy, security, awareness, and contentment. &ur character traits can develop by what we grow to accept will be the result of the response we give in a certain situation. &ur character traits can change when a new process of information brings about an intended result. That is, we can work on our character traits by taking the actions that follow our reflections to do something about the way we feel. &ur e"perience shows us that our character traits are connected very closely to our behavior, and that they can change when a new response is given, and the results they achieve are different than our e"perience previously.
