Transformation is like picking a lock. You need tools, you need patience, you need immense awareness, and the results need to be valuable, or you'll quit before you are done. Partial transformation gives you bragging rights, but no results.
This is going to be an article that, I predict, will grow as we discover or invent (with Source) new tools to bring about the 1,000 Years of Peace, the restoration of the Original Design.
I will not give details of the tools in this article. The details you can find in other articles, or in the glossary. I will link the tools to where you can read more about them as time allows.
Patience, my friend, patience is a virtue. I'll get to it when I can. Start at the beginning... do you know how to connect, yet? I don't mean know about it. I don't mean "I think so" I mean, have I said that you are connected? If not, then please come to a connection call or stop feeding your mind. All this information is worthless there.
I will list the tools in the order I received them, not in the order of importance. This is where the good guys finish first, even if they started last...
I have always liked getting things done. Why? Because everything that doesn't get done is like an energetic attachment, like a ball and chain on your ankle, slows you down, and prevents you from soaring... having a good time, feeling free and unencumbered.
I don't like those feelings, so I learn, test, experiment with methods that allow me to be free.
I even like to be lighter in weight because I don't like to be heavy in any way, including physically.
What gives it away is the implied inevitability. The language. That it's always, or never.
Like I am never going to be successful. Stings. Hurts. My eyes are watering. I scramble to avoid it, fight mightily, only to give up after a while and resign... burn, and get up from the ashes like a phoenix bird... This has been the story of my life. Horrid.
Now, imagine free falling towards the Earth, accelerating. Your language, I guess: I am going to die. I am going to be pulped by the impact.
Imagined it? Now imagine that I order you to pay attention to the weather, to the shape of the clouds in the sky.
15 years ago I met a guy who was into energies. It all sounded a tall tale to me, somewhat irritating, to tell the truth. After all I knew everything about everything... don't you?
Anyway, I was proven wrong soon, and became a convert.
Energies became very real for me, as physical as dirt and milk and bread... Soon I was training to become an energy practitioner, and I worked on him, on myself, and even traded for massage therapy...
My favorite, absolute favorite move was "Pattern pulling."
Patterns are thought forms that burrow themselves into your energy body, and then, once they set root, they grow. You can see the similarity to attachments, the only thing that is dissimilar is that it actually comes from yourself, for the most part.
ASCENDING TO THE HIGH SEAT, DOGEN ZENJI SAID: "ZEN MASTER HOGEN STUDIED WITH KEISHIN ZENJI. ONCE KEISHIN ZENJI ASKED HIM, JOZA, WHERE DO YOU GO?' HOGEN SAID. 'I AM MAKING PILGRIMAGE AIMLESSLY.' KEISHIN SAID, 'WHAT IS THE MATTER OF YOUR PILGRIMAGE?' HOGEN SAID, 'I DON'T KNOW.' KEISHIN SAID, 'NOT KNOWING IS THE MOST INTIMATE.' HOGEN SUDDENLY ATTAINED GREAT ENLIGHTENMENT."
ZEN IS JUST ZEN. There is nothing comparable to it. It is unique -- unique in the sense that it is the most ordinary and yet the most extraordinary phenomenon that has happened to human consciousness. It is the most ordinary because it does not believe in knowledge, it does not believe in mind. It is not a philosophy, not a religion either. It is the acceptance of the ordinary existence with a total heart, with one's total being, not desiring some other world, supra-mundane, supra-mental. Continue reading on my Osho blog
