The learning material and contents provided by the AltanaESP Network & System, frequently make use of terms and concepts that aren't all that familiar to most people. This glossary - AltanaESP Terms and Concepts - is a collection of the constructs (i.e. words, terms & concepts) often used in AltanaESP materials and content. This glossary act as a source of reference to enhance the contextual meaning and understanding of these "odd" terms and concepts. Words and/or phrases hold different meanings for each person. Therefore, it is a sensible idea to "define" the constructs used and to "place every body on the same page" when dealing with such constructs. You, the reader - most likely - have quite a different definition for, understanding of or perspective regarding such constructs... and that is fine! However, within the Altana... Electronic Support Platform (i.e. Network and System), the various terms, concepts and implications are quite specific and contextual.

Therefore, each word, term or concept - included in this glossary - serve as a "resources tool" to promote understanding and context when dealing with or exploring AltanaESP materials and contents.

When we set a chain of events in motions to obtain specific and desired results (i.e. influencing - for example - attitude or behavioural changes) we tend to become discourage when things (i.e. the expected change) doesn't happen fast or quickly enough to our liking. We have the tendency to critically observe, judge and compare a situation and often conclude that nothing actually is taking place; everything still remains to be the same despite efforts made.

However, what we fail to "see" or acknowledge, is that inner changes (i.e. inner landscape changes) are actually taking place... gradually. Because.. there is NEVER nothing happening! We just fail to see, realize or - worst of all - being totally unaware of the changes that are actually taking place.

Our impatience (i.e. restless or short of temper under delay or opposition) and eagerness for results... NOW! Often, effectively "kills" the intended result, long before it could mature. The reason why this kind of impatient-result eagerness is referred to as the "egg syndrome", is because...

Just as an fertilized egg, the form, shape (i.e. eggshell) and behaviour of "the egg" remains static (i.e. what we can observe). However, the "seed" is planted "inside" and gradually develop, evolve and mature into a living chicken. Inside the egg, the "seed" is "preparing" to hatch. Should we interfere - due to our impatience and eagerness to speed things up - by "breaking the egg open" or "heating things up"; we will "kill" the "chicken" long before it could reach maturity and hatch. Thus, be keenly aware that change (any change, whether emotion, mindset, perception, skill, behaviour, etc.) need to be digested and matured on the "inside" first, before the "new" behaviour, intent or attitude can productively "hatch".
Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is 'timing' it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way
The Big Squeeze Similar to the big squeeze... its takes inner patience, time and preparation for things to suddenly (i.e. eventually) appear on the "outside".
