PsychoNoetics as Buddhist Healing

In many ways PsychoNoetics fits squarely within the Buddhist tradition and can be seen as Buddhist healing. First of all it, like the whole of Buddhism, is a program for escaping suffering. What’s more, the conception of suffering is the same in PsychoNoetics and Buddhism, namely it is the suffering we create for ourselves. Furthermore the origination and continuation of suffering are seen in the same way in PsychoNoetics and Buddhism. Some of these similarities are:

The laws of cause and effect (karma), as they are held and work in the consciousness of the individual. (On the level of the physical body as well as the enoeic {karmic or soul} and egoic levels)
The ways in which karmic cause-and-effect work through perception, both sensory and cognitive.
The way sensory and cognitive perception is formed through prior learning and the way prior learning is formed through perception creating an unconscious feedback loop.
The way this feedback loop needs to be brought to consciousness before it can be revised.
The need to gradually revise this feedback loop by letting go of the beliefs, emotions and intentions, (BEI’s) that underlie these perceptions.

Some Differences

PsychoNoetics of course differs from Buddhism in the means or technology to revise these beliefs. The principal technologies of Buddhism are meditation, education, insight and affirmation. To these, PsychoNoetics adds autokinesiological testing and intentional clearing.

In PsychoNoetics, the first and by far the most significant clearing is Karmic clearing or memory clearing. In this, consciousness itself is cleared of a stream of memories, whether they originated in a past lifetime or the present one. This washes clean the window of perception.

Although autokinesiological testing and intentional clearing are an addition to Buddhist techniques they are an addition that creates further differences. One of these is that, as the clearing proceeds, the mind holds fewer obstacles to stillness so there is less need for meditation.

The other big difference is that, while the pointing, inquiry and understanding aspects of Buddhist education are not only retained but emphasized, PsychoNoetics eschews all beliefs and affirmations for the path of letting go, of neti neti, not this not that. While this is not in accord with all Buddhist teaching, it does agree with the highest Buddhist teaching.
Nonattachment

Even beyond beliefs, Buddhism teaches that attachment is the root of all suffering and that letting go of attachments is one of the gateways to enlightenment. Not only is PsychoNoetics in agreement with this, it extends the principal from the psychospiritual level to the physical level. One of its discoveries is that all sorts of dis-eases, from allergies and autoimmune disorders to toxic reactions, diseases and even injuries can be “energy blocks and imbalances”, and are the physical analogs to psychospiritual beliefs and attachments. Following this insight, the diagnosis and treatment of physical dis-ease converges with the diagnosis and treatment of psychospiritual dis-ease.
Presence or Nirvana

Finally PsychoNoetics, like Buddhism, points to an unknowable place, a place beyond words, beyond any designation, a place of no-thingness in which some no-thing arises. That which arises when the causes of dis-ease are cleared is absolute ease, ultimate well-being. It is calm, clarity and compassion. It is inner freedom. It is presence, the presence of that state Buddhism calls Nirvana. And it heals the body as well as the mind and spirit.

The Switcheroo- Good is not dead, just alienated!

cross

The Switcheroo

God is not dead, just alienated!

 We are all God having a human experience. With rare exceptions however, the closest we “mortals” come to that realization is to think that we are having experiences of God.  When we do have one of these experiences of God, the representatives of organized religions are there to interpret its meaning for us.  However, they do not lead us closer to our God identity, but rather further from it. Indeed they use their “God given” authority to convince us that our experiences are of their God.  The effect of this switcheroo is that instead of embracing our Godness, along with the responsibility, sovereignty and power that accompanies it, we deny it and instead accept the authority of the church’s God. I call this process the alienation of God.

 

Nietzsche posited that God is dead, killed by rationalism, while Eli Weisel said of the Nazi’s that they killed the God in themselves.  I believe that God is not dead, just alienated, and it is alienated not principally by rationalistic and scientific thought, but by the very institutions and individuals that have ostensibly been responsible for its promulgation, organized religion and its clergy!

 

It is not an accident that Jesus Christ was likened to a shepherd, and his followers to a flock of sheep.  People who have been alienated from their God nature and instead accept and follow a deity are like sheep.  Shorn of their own God nature, they have no center of authority and intention, no individuality.  Fleeced, they need a leader and once having found one, they will follow him off a cliff.  This transformation of people into sheeple is a consequence of this alienation from their God identity, the alienation of God.

 

By the same token, every inhuman thought, every inhuman act is the consequence of this alienation of God.  Child soldiers and the men who would make them that way, polluters of the environment, priests that practice human sacrifice, the witch hunters of the Inquisition – all are people who kill in the name of God because they have been alienated from the God in themselves.

The Deep Call

More than ever before, now is the time for humans to realize their oneness and their unity. In our fragile world that threatens to break apart in so many ways, it is crucial to recognize our common enemies that can only be conquered if we pool our resources and proceed as “everybody-all-at-once.”

This is no longer a choice; this is an imperative. We have to know that we are competing, not against one another, but against a common enemy and an inner one at that. What is this enemy, It is nothing less than our shared evolutionary programming, the frailty and mortality of our bodies, our survival consciousness, and the beliefs, emotions and intentions that set humans against humans, religions against religions, and nations against nations. It is nothing less than the very boundaries of our existence.

In a way we are one humanity competing against the values…

Redefining Consciousness and Awareness

Redefining Consciousness
and Awareness…

And a critical examination of the term “Conscious Evolution

There is a lot of confusion between the words consciousness and awareness.  In many instances they are used interchangeably, i.e., he is conscious of or aware of.  In other cases they are used differently, but the difference is subtle.  For instance, you might say he has regained consciousness, in the sense of regaining consciousness after deep sleep or a drugged state; whereas you seldom hear someone say he has regained awareness.

Then, there is a deeper way in which they are used.  However, in order to elucidate this, we first have to make a distinction within the word consciousness.  To make this distinction we capitalize the first letter of consciousness to signify that it is referring to an absolute, i.e. Consciousness.  Whereas when we use it as an adjective or noun, we start with a lowercase letter, i.e., consciousness.  This parallels the way we distinguish Self and self.

The root words ‘conscious’ and ‘aware’ are frequently used as nouns, i.e. things in themselves, consciousness or awareness.  In other cases, they are used to refer to a state of sentience, as in ‘he is conscious of’ or ‘aware of’.   In all of these cases they are interchangeable … He is a conscious person or he is an aware person means much the same thing.

But after that the equivalence between the two words stops entirely.  Hindu and Buddhist sages, among others, theorize that Consciousness is the ground of being itself.  In other words everything or every living thing (there are differences of opinion) is made up of Consciousness.  Consciousness then is either the irreducible ‘substance’, the force of life, or if you are so inclined – the essence of God.  Consciousness, used in this way is really an absolute!  On the other hand you can say no such thing about awareness.  Awareness can be used as an adjective, a noun or state of being, but in no sense has it been used to refer to the ground of being or the irreducible substance.  Everything is not composed of awareness, even a measuring instrument can be aware in the sense that it registers and calibrates something.  Therefore, in no sense is awareness an absolute.

Consciousness, when used as an absolute, cannot evolve, any more than empty space can.  It just is what it is.  On the other hand, consciousness used as a noun or even as an adjective can evolve.  But in these cases, it is not consciousness itself that is evolving; it is the object, the thing described that is evolving.

In the spiritual movement of ‘conscious evolution’ it is you, or in some cases the entire group of which you are a part, that is evolving.  The phrase ‘conscious evolution’ is a misnomer and a misleading one at that.  If anything, it means that you are evolving consciously, i.e. that you have taken the evolution of your awareness into your own hands and are pursuing it consciously. If so, as your awareness evolves, you might well become aware of deeper, even causal layers of things:  I don’t dispute that.  I am only clarifying.  (Actually however, real evolution is always unconscious, even though the lifeforms that are doing the evolving might be aware.)

Finally, to say that Consciousness evolves is to imply that it is a thing, for in the strict sense of the word, only things, and living things at that, can evolve. And though in the final analysis what consciousness is might be a mystery, or at least inexpressible: one thing is clear.  It is not a thing.

Redefining Prayer


Redefining Prayer

It is time to redefine prayer.  Prayer, in its usual definition, presupposes an external God or gods, which are alternately or simultaneously bowed down to, beseeched, or even the subject of anger and resentment.  The “New Age” alternatives to this external God are

  1. God is a principal
  2. God is in everything and
  3. God is in us.

But all of these alternatives are really rationalizations rather than abandonments of the external God.  What we need is a total reversal, a figure ground shift.

This is subtle and difficult to grasp.  It can be best summed up in the phrase, “we are all God having human experiences.”  God is universal consciousness, and we as humans, and arguably all sentient beings, are embodiments of that universal consciousness, which can also, but misleadingly be termed the one God.  In other words, God is not in us, we are in God.  This is the figure ground shift I am calling for.

It is also a form of monotheism, but shorn of the theism.

If we are in God rather than God being in us, what does it mean to pray?  To pray to oneself is meaningless.  Instead prayer merges with intention.  It is beyond absurdity for God to pray to himself, but it makes perfect sense for God to intend.  As a matter of fact the power of intention can only be realized when we realize our true identity as God.  This is why we must get into still mind, the portal to the God state, in order for our intentions to bear fruit.  (I am using the word intention intentionally, in order to distinguish it from emotions and or actions, like wanting, willing, being goal directed etc.).  Intention, although it frequently leads to action, needs no action.  Rather it is automatic, like walking or peeing.  We intend it and it just happens.

But, and this is the rub, we, as God’s embodiments must ask, not necessarily in words but in our own intentions.  In a sense God must ask God; God the embodiment must ask God the universal– for what?

To intend to make us whole, to intend to heal us, to intend to guide us, and most of all, to intend to make us, his embodiments, realize that they are just that!

This then is “prayer” redefined.

Karmic Clearing


Karmic Clearing

The Eastern religions have a word which encompasses everything that PsychoNoetics clears.  That word is karma, which is why PsychoNoetics is sometimes referred to as karmic clearing.  Karma is everything you hold that takes you out of reality, that reality that is also called nonduality, Oneness, or absolute, cosmic or God consciousness, (among other things).  There is no equivalent word for Karma in our Western world because we still conceive of reality as the physical appearance of things, and do not recognize consciousness as the real ground of being.

Karma then is the totality of illusion, including of course delusion.  Illusion is the world as it is given to us if by our perceptions, whether or not our perceptions are grounded in consensual reality.  Everything that we hold, everything that we conceive of, everything outside of an empty, still mind – is illusion. When we see something and recognize it, that is illusion. When we think, that is illusion.  When we are in memory, past life or present, we are illusion.  When we anticipate the future we are in illusion.  When we hold and live in a concept like time, location, or linear cause-and-effect, we are in illusion.

Delusion is a subset of illusion.  Whenever we are in an illusion which is not grounded in consensual reality we are in delusion.  (Note that I said illusion. Frequently people who are fully sane and in touch with their real reality are mistaken for insane – because they do not fit into a basically insane society).

PsychoNoetics then clears karma, all of it, however it is held.  It clears both illusion and delusion.  It begins by clearing oneself and others, both locally and nonlocally.  However it is also capable of clearing the karma of past lives; collective consciousness and even evolutionary consciousness (although all levels of karmic clearing, even self-clearing and clearing others, are subject to limitations).

Karma is held in consciousness

Karma is neither a thing nor an accumulation of things; it resides in consciousness and consciousness is not a thing; it is a field.  In this field of consciousness, thought creates form. Everyone, when in pure consciousness, is a center without boundaries.  However when you bound yourself through thought- in any way; when you think I am something, you generate a self-concept and that creates a boundary around yourself.  You then contract to that bounded identity and your sphere of influence become limited by it.  You literally become separated by it and separated don’t have any connections or influence beyond your boundaries of your identity.  What you think you are becomes what you are; it becomes the self-created boundary of your consciousness.

In this state of separation, of bounded identity, it is impossible to clear karma or heal in any way. On the other hand, when you abolish all thoughts and return to still mind, you suspend the illusions of thingness and separate identity and once again become an unbounded center of the field of consciousness.  To the degree to which you are successful in doing this, you regain “your” power and once again become able to influence other consciousnesses through your focused intentions.

Some light workers, clearers and healers of different persuasions master the “trick” of going into a state of “love” when they are working,  which automatically suspends their thoughts and brings about still mind. However they lapse again into ignorance and confusion when they are through working.  This is not true PsychoNoetics.  PsychoNoetics is not only an intentional clearing and healing modality; it is a path to enlightenment.  It is the clearing path.

The Endgame

The Endgame

Download PDF: humansphere.org/theendgame

PsychoNoetic clearing can change human nature and thus change the very course of evolution.  How does PsychoNoetics do this?  By clearing the dominance paradigm and making way for the emergence of the consciousness paradigm. This is the endgame, the end of the game that we and all of evolution are presently in, and the beginning of a new evolutionary game for humanity – and thus for the earth.

The progression of illusion

A thing is essentially a perceptual category. Because we perceive “everything” as a thing it is natural that we come to perceive ourselves as things as well. However natural this is – it is also an illusion. In essence we are not things, we are individual centers of the one consciousness, and consciousness, in all its many forms, is the one thing that is not a thing!

 A thing is anything that can be perceived or conceived as separate from anything else.

The illusion of thingness gives rise to the illusion of separation.  In this we feel ourselves as separate individuals, separate from other people, separate from other sentient beings, separate from our families and our communities, even separate from the ecosystem that supports us.

This illusion of separation is, in turn, the genesis of the ego or “I” concept. As ego we sometimes feel separate even from the parts of our own bodies. We also feel separate from the greater body of consciousness which, of course is the genesis of the body-spirit split.

Finally it is the illusion of separation*, with all of its felt implications, that in turn has created the dominance paradigm in all sentient beings and is sustaining it in the human species.

* The illusion of separation and its consequence in the dominance paradigm is an inevitable, perhaps even necessary stage in pre-human evolution. Under the circumstances no other way forward could evolve. However separation and dominance by force in the human species will stop human evolution (except perhaps the evolution of technology) dead in its tracks, will very likely result in the de-evolution of the human species and perhaps its eventual extinction, as well as damaging, perhaps irreparably, ecosystem of the Earth itself. Changing the dominance paradigm to the consciousness paradigm requires acts of consciousness themselves, i.e. first becoming conscious of the dominance paradigm, second consciously changing it.  The best way to do this that I know of is through PsychoNoetics.

Changing human nature

We can change human nature through PsychoNoetics by clearing the dominance paradigm throughout the evolutionary sequence. The sequence of evolutionary clearing consists of the following:

  • evolutionary memories
  • collective memories
  • past life memories
  • present life memories
  • present life beliefs, emotions and intentions (BEI’s)

This will clear the way for the emergence of the consciousness paradigm. Of course more might have to be done in the way of education for the consciousness paradigm to assert itself as the main engine of evolution but this will at least dissolve the resistance to its emergence.

The emergence of the consciousness paradigm will change human nature, change the course of human evolution and thus save not only humanity itself but the rest of the Earth from humanity.
