Q. What’s the biggest flaw in your method?
A. The hardest thing for many people is remembering to apply it at first! So I’d say executing it’s continual application, especially when it’s most needed!
Q. I am really sceptical about this. I doubt it a lot. How do I know it will work?
A. I can only say, be sceptical or be convinced, but find that which allows both and is aware of both. Then practice being it. This isn’t about agreeing or disagreeing, they are just relative occurrences which you can be equally aware or mindful of. This is beyond the relative; it transcends both agreeing and disagreeing! It’s there within you no matter what you read, what you think, or what you feel. It’s about being “the real you” that unchanging you, which is aware of agreeing, disagreeing, and all else that is relative. Practice being that, and over time, the bliss of peace shall come.
I don’t have anything to convince you of, because the ability or phenomenon I speak of, is already there within you. It’s a fact already.
When you say you “doubt” my method then that doubt it real. It is all that there is for that moment. Your doubt is an experience. But, can that doubt be observed, are you aware of it? Yes! So the doubt is relative to the act of that natural observing, practice tuning into that and you’ll experience bliss whether doubt is there or not. Do it or don’t, agree or don’t; the resulting experience of bliss is as much a fact as your experience of doubt right now.
Q. I have many complex questions I would like to ask you on this subject.
A. Why bother? You are as much you dancing as you are laughing with friends, singing, or watching a film. I could give answers and more questions would arise. Best to focus on the “you” that is aware of the questions, the questioner and all else — what allows them to be and what remains whether they are there or not. In time, the bliss created by this approach will provide all your answers for you!
Q. Will I have to practice all my life?
A. That depends on how far you want to take your practice. When you reach full permanence, little or no practice is required as the state of blissful being is fully natural and effortless. At such a point, the relative (such as thoughts, emotions) goes on regardless as the experience of the bliss of the absolute you (that which is aware of all else) goes on. As long as there is a moment in your life when bliss is not there, and the relative becomes its own absorbed in reality, some practice maybe required.
Q. Isn’t this method just a flash in the pan?
A. No, because even when that thought arises, you are conscious of it and something allows it to arise. So, this is a methodless method, which is there, no matter what, throughout the use of all methods or none as long as you are alive. The method as it where, only takes you back to the bliss of your own consciousness – something that is naturally there and free already.
So, even if it is “not working,” you are conscious of that — able to observe it or be mindful of it— so focus as what is conscious of all, always there no matter what, and keep going!
Q. Where does the heart figure in all this, our energy, and the soul?
A. I don’t use these words, but use what terms work for you. Given my neurological understanding, I focus on the brain as the mechanism through which bliss can be reached. Neurons also communicate with bodily organs too. This bliss is certainly “felt’ through the fabric of your very being. However, try feeling bliss, having a heart, nourishing the soul and feeling cosmic energy….without a brain/mind. So, I prefer to stick to concrete terms that all can understand and accept, but, in the end, if you understand the method, it’s all about results, so why not use terms that are best for you! All words and terms are just a thin layer over the deep ocean of the experience itself.
Q. Just being the allower of all that goes on within sounds like the recipe for disaster, where does morality fit into all of this?
A. At first, the practice will not stop you committing immoral acts, it’s not a quick fix. Yet, practice will lead to bliss, which contains its own morality. When immoral or morally questionable acts are done, it is almost always for the benefit of the doer. Sexual abuse, theft, rape, drugs, bullying, gambling, are things that are done to make the doer happier. Yet, the bliss you can create within, is the greatest happiness any person could have, it is therefore its very own morality. Therefore, once being that, there is no need for immoral acts to be committed for pleasure any longer.
