Philosophy & Psychology

Reality takes place in one place only: your mind.

Psychology is the functioning of the mind, as determined by your brain, your body, your genetics, your culture and all the other influences you are subject to in your life. How you think, what you believe, how you feel, and ultimately what you do is all determined by psychological processes.

Philosophy is about explaining HOW psychology is managed and seeks to find the best way to do this. Creating a philosophy is about examining evidence to come to a conclusion on WHY you are alive, the purpose behind your actions and the moral principles and values you want to see yourself live by.

In BROJO, we focus on learning about how the mind works, particularly when it comes to increasing helpful behaviours while reducing unhelpful behaviours. This increase/reduce process will naturally lead to the development of your own unique personal philosophy; a guiding set of principles (which we call "values") that aid you in making more helpful decisions.
