But the question begs to be asked: what do you mean “inner world”?
People, teachers, even psychologists all talk about the mind, then they expand it to beliefs, but if that is your inner world, then you are stuck.
Nothing will change the mind, nothing will change beliefs, directly.
Also, trying to use the faculties to change themselves is pretty futile.
If you look at the quote:
“Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you’ve got.” you’ll see that the quote, pretty much, means that there is some faculty that is superior to beliefs or the mind, and that is being.
And if you watch some Law of Attraction people that pretend whatever they say will attract what they want, you will see that on the level of being nothing changed: they are desperate, doubtful, trying, want to, wish to, long to, hungry to… and that being is the opposite of what they want to pretend to be.
The connection between being and mind is one way. The being informs the mind, but there is no communication the other way around: ordinary words don’t effect being, at all.
Talking, words, that come from the mind won’t ever change your being.
What will? Action.
Actions that can alter your being
Some actions are physical, muscular, outside action.
Some actions are inner, and they may not have anything outward to indicate that there was any action.
Commitment, declaration, promises, requests are actions that use words, but the words come from a place other than the mind.
When I speak, you may hear that I don’t speak from the mind…
Identifying it vs. Distinguishing it
On the other hand if you have never seen something, never heard something, you may not be able to identify it… only distinguish it. Distinguishing is a concentration of the “not that” “not that” 1 instead of what the mind does: deciding on what it is based on the insufficient data the mind has.
Until you can grok 2 distinguishing, we are not able to communicate, you and I. I will say something, and you’ll hear it with the mind… you’ll know what I said. But I probably didn’t say that… it was the mind jumping into conclusions.
Everything I say needs work, needs inquiry, and needs you to disqualify the mind as the judge. If you know yourself as smart, if you have earned your living by knowing, you’ll have a harder time than people who have had a difficulty with smarts, or with learning.
Everything I say is useless when it is heard through the mind.
So, how do you train yourself to hear something and refuse to be seduced by the mind, the know-it-all part of you. Or alternatively, how do you train yourself to hear something that you don’t understand?
It is as frequent issue as the know-it-all mind!
The job is to hear and not jump. The job is to hear and not understand. When you are able to do that, the “other” parts of the brain, the other faculties will have a chance to do some work on what you heard.
Your real smarts live outside of the mind. All understanding is mind… Grokking it is a code-word for getting it through faculties that are not traditionally deemed as organs of communication, but they are.
Much like seeing: we have completely abandoned organs of perception in favor of the eyes, because the eyes are so intimately connected to the mind.
But you see and perceive things through several layers, several organs of perception.
You don’t have to be an empath to feel, you don’t have to be a clair-sensar to sense, you don’t have to be a clairvoyant to see beyond the obvious.
Why are these things important? Because those “other” senses directly communicate to your being…
Would blindfolding you, or deafening you work?
I had a masseuse/client once. She was blind and deaf. In some areas, like as a masseuse, she was looking with those other organs. But when it came to something that can be seen, she was coming from the mind, and refused to see… So I saw that the answer is no.
As the quote above says: “Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you’ve got.”
Unless you discount the mind, you’ll use the mind as your primary mode of knowing, and your life will suck.
In the upcoming course, I’ll attempt to connect you to your being directly, so we can cause change there.
Your main job will be to discount the mind. I cannot do that for you, that is a volitional act on your part.
I am excited and I am scared. I only know one program that has produced results like I intend to produce. I’ll talk about it in another article.
