There is a website about neural linguistic programming that seems to be in a good analogy to the hierarchies of invariant representations and the idea that you have more energy and are more motivated if everything in your mind is linked to your purpose and that stress is caused when your hierarchy of IRs is fragmented in your working memory.

Resolving Internal Conflicts |
Category: Therapeutic Approaches, Techniques, Values | 2 Comments
Internal conflicts are a common ‘ailment’ that people experience. I tend to think of this as an inner voice that says “you haven’t paid attention to what I need”. So we build up these fragments until they start hurting.
We could possibly identify them by paying attention to symptoms such as pain, dilemmas and the like. They are signals to a conflict. Most likely, you will want to resolve them in order to release the energy that was spent on it. Once this happens, you will find a very powerful release of energy that makes you relieved and possibly more energized.
Inner conflicts require an integration. In NLP, there is a process known as parts integration, or a visual squash technique. Utilizing the Milton Model, you chunk up to the highest intention that each part has and then merge them once there is a common set of values.
Of course the challenge is in finding the matching values. We all know that chunking up will lead to higher values, but let’s consider that it’s not always the case. Sometimes, I find recursive chunking. This is endless. So I have to force the issue sometimes by building complex equivalences within my language to create a connection between one thing and another in order for the parts to integrate.
Rather than describe it, I think I should do up a demonstration video if the time permits. In the meantime, Parts Integration can be done on yourself. You need to recognize and reconcile the conflicts through the assessment of your values and how they match.
Step 1 - identify the part that is creating the conflict
Step 2 - identify the part that is in greatest conflict with the first part
Step 3 - name the parts and assess their physical characteristics
Step 4 - pick one part and assess the purpose of its being.
Step 5 - chunk upward to as high a chunk as necessary
Step 6 - chunk up on the next part to a level that converges with the chunk level in step 5.
Step 7 - proceed with integration
So in my language, highest intention is the highest order IRs or life goals or life purpose.
And the process of mering them is.... well say you have a huge to do list and that you feel stressed when you look at it. They all seem to be totally unrelated. And you have no motivation at all to do them. Well, to make the stress go away, with each item in the to do list, conciously in your mind link them.
For example, on of my items on my life out line (basically my to do list) is to
"download all the course work" I look at this and it seems totally pointless and it would take lots of energy to bring myself to actually doing this. But I find motivation by thinking and linking it to my highest goals like this:
"download all the course work, so i get credit for my study abroad courses, so I can et my transcript down in time, so I can work at my internship during the summer, that internship will let me have time in the evening to plan how to make my escape, so that I can become wealthy, so that I can be free to create organized conciousness"
And if I don't have motivation to do a certain item, then I do this process. That way my hierarchy is whole, there are not random things that I do that are not linked to it. There I keep constant motivation to doing them. Also it is a constant reminder for me to do things that keep me on my path to my life goals.
