This is a 7 years old recording of a drill session... where I am training people to distinguish between mind actions, brain actions, how to know if you are coming from your mind, if you are forcing, etc.
I discovered two days ago why... and now I can start teaching it again, and see if it is a lack of capacity, or a lack of intention that causes the failure.
Why am I so persistent in teaching something no one wants to do? Because, as you'll find out, it is both a test and a spiritual practice that can take you to beingness, the dominion of heaven. I'll add what I have newly discovered where it is needed, in italics and in the footnotes, below the article.
In this article I introduce a simple exercise that if you are willing to do, consistently, you will be able to accomplish a whole lot, probably more than any meditation program by itself. It does two things:
I have thousands of audios I can put on my podcast list. Some good, others even better.
This is one of the most profound audios where I dig deep into religion, religious world view, and how it stands in your way to become all you can be.
Worth a thorough listen, even though it doesn't talk much about the hidden dimension of reality, or racket...
This one is brilliant. It deals with the complaint activated dynamic, called racket. But the racket in this recording is "special"... it points to why your life is so empty, and why, it seems, nothing that you do fills it up with life...
I just watched a documentary and I found out why. The documentary is introducing music through personal headphones and ipods to people with Alzheimer's and dementia, showing that they come alive, and their memories, at least temporarily, return, and with it their sense of being a person, and joy.
I live in silence... and dance at the exercise class. I don't have a radio, don't have a TV, so I don't listen to music, but when I accidentally do... I party. I celebrate... OK, too much information? ok... I shut up.
If I asked you (Cinderella) to separate the wheat from the chaff... what would you do first? If you are like me, you first find out what is the difference... in looks, in weight, and then start separating them accordingly.
I even used to use this capacity (oh, forgot to say, it's a capacity!) to hire or not hire someone to work with me. I would ask someone to separate a pile of things by their category...
Universally missing capacity... I found out. The underlying capacity can be said with these words: be able to tell the forest for the trees. Continue reading "Principle: Make your plane land on the landing strip, regardless of the weather"
What got me out of that direction down to desperation, ultimately, a Carlos Castaneda 1 quote: Continue reading "What can a one-track pony teach you?"
But... there is always some boulder is blocking my way.
So what do you do with that boulder in your way?
My answer is quite counter-cultural. I say: you have that boulder there because you need to get familiar, maybe even intimate with it so it will let you continue on your path.
