Mind. Conciousness.

Welcome to a new psychological paradigm and to a new understanding of life and your experience.

3PAUS is an Australian non-profit organisation and our mission is to spread the understanding of the Three Principles in Australia.

We want to increase the number of people who teach, share and learn the principles – and to support and facilitate professional collaboration in this field. Put another way: The site is for those who want to learn. Those who want to teach others. And for those who want to use the understanding of the Three Principles in their organisations.

In sharing the understanding of the Three Principles, we are inspired by Sydney Banks. Forty years ago, he discovered and introduced these principles as an understanding of how the human experience is created.

The principles have helped people around the world (re)discover their own mental health and wellbeing – and reach their full potential. The principles have a profound impact on all aspects of life and our purpose is to share this understanding. All content on the site is therefore non-commercial and it is not allowed for writers and other contributors on the site to promote their business/brand and other commercial activities here.

The Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought were first articulated by Sydney in the early 1970s. These innate, formless principles are responsible for the creation of all human experience.

The Principle of Mind is the formless energy responsible for the creation of all life – sometimes called the “God Principle” and it is the source of everything in the universe.


The Principle of Consciousness makes it possible for us to be aware of life, and all of our sensory experiences.


The Principle of Thought provides for unlimited creative potential and allows for the creation of all mental energy – everything we can think, perceive and feel.

We learn and get insights into the Three Principles if we "stay in the conversation". That is why we in 3PAUS have created a forum where we get together, and you can be in the conversation about the principles, about life and everything that moves from an understanding of the Three Principles. We call it 3PAUS-Zoom, and you can join us to explore this understanding.

In addition, we hold regular webinars where we present a specific topic based on this understanding and have a 3P book club, meeting every couple of months to connect on a principles-based book and, if possible, the author.
