and that you should make sure you're ready to experience that possibility- should it arise.
Actually, that is good advice. I would at this juncture like to remind everyone however, that at the same time, it is ONLY the resistance itself, to
the surfacing of any repressed material, which may be considered to be the sole cause of any and all suffering, because, once the material is
surfaced, and re-integrated (most of which occurs while you sleep and dream), then there is no longer anything to suffer over. And right there is the
process, which, once firmly initiated and established (with regular and persistent use), represents what I like think of as nothing less than, the
"alchemy of consciousness".
Just think, we're talking about the complete integration or cohesion and synchronization, of the left and right hemispheres of the brain (and nervous
system), while plumbing the depths of the unconsciousness, in a conscious or semi-conscious state of awareness - in the words of Carl Jung, making the
unconscious, conscious. This is known also as "shadow work". But when placed within an evolutionary framework of change and transformation, ABSENT
ANY RESISTENCE, then the process is ONLY one of increased conscious awareness, integration, vitality, connectedness, and peace of mind, which is the
key to happiness.
And so, it is recommended, by people like Bill Harris at Centerpointe (see his book "Thresholds of the Mind"), that you offer no resistence
whatsoever, even if and inevtiably when, your present "map of reality" begins to destabalize in order to reintegrate and reorder itself at a much
higher level, and this, this quantum leap ALWAYS happens, and will happen spontaneously
- to use an analogy, much like a planted seed at the
point of germination, where the cracking of the seed to give birth to new life, is the most natural process in the world. It is this process, this
alchemical rarifaction (to use some Terrance McKenna for good measure) of one's own nervous system, and psychological makeup, which is what BB
entrainment is all about, not the experience within the meditation itself, and I'm sorry to hear about anyone having a really bad or negative
reaction to this technology. I-doser is reckless and their stuff sounds like crap. But don't let that deter you.
And always remember THIS! If your map of reality starts to destablize or fall apart, that does NOT mean that YOU are falling apart. Why? Quite simple.
Because the map, is not the territory, but only a representation OF the territory, a construct, nothing more. Lose attachment to that, and you've got
it made, and then you begin to realize, that there is a WITNESS, an observing self that KNOWS it's not your worldview or map of reality (beliefs,
values, generalizations, distinctions, interpretations, etc.). No the real you, is the higher you, and it can take in and integrate ANYTHING that the
unconscious can throw at it. The brain is THE most evolved and complex system in fact, in the entire universe. So it's even MORE capable than a seed,
to handle continuous quantum-leap bifurcations in complexity. It was one of the main things your brain was DESIGNED to do, and a task it can perform
admirably, if given the chance to do so WITHOUT RESISTENCE.
For anyone interested in the evolution of consciousness aspect of BB entrainment, like that offered by Monroe Institute and Centerpointe, I would
highly recommend Bill Harris' book "Thresholds of the Mind".
I believe it (BB Entrainment Meditation) CAN be used, when understood fully, as a treatment FOR things like presenile dimentia, depression, and even
schitzo-affective disorder, since it's synchronizing the bincameral brain, while bringing to the light of awareness, the deeper material of the
unconscious, which contains the repressed archetypes that the consciousness mind (in schitzophrenia) is attempting to understand, come to grips with,
and express. Might as well give the higher mind free access to that material and all conflict then is resolved.
We all have a full brain and a higher mind, is what I'm driving at, and this technology can drive the mind, automatically, to new orders of
complexity and functionality.
And so to put up a resistence, for what is attempting to break through, by first breaking it down and apart, is to do nothing more than slow down the
process, and make the experience of transformation, less enjoyable and therefore less rewarding. And IT IS ALL IN YOU anyway, to begin with, it's
important I think to remember that..
The first "bifurcations" we automatically resist, so you can have breakdown (although I don't get that any more at all), and you will, inevitably,
but the MIRACLE is what happens at the very POINT of breakdown (map of reality is no longer workable and needs to reorganize at a higher and more
functional level) - the quantum leap of transformation, the "rarification and alchemical complexification, of human conscious awareness" (said like
The philosophers stone, is what it is, when fully understood and used as such. It was lost, but it's been found, recovered for a new age of
pychological and spiritual growth and well being.
