The Enlightenment Exercise Structure
An original contribution to the technique of enlightenment results from a basic dynamic of life: Relating.
All our study show that the important factor in earlier enlightenment methods was the contact, the interchange between the teacher and his students. Relating oneself to another is the key.
We have devised, tested and perfected the technique wherein maximum advantage is taken of the acceleration that relating gives to self inquiry and hence to enlightenment.
A group of interested people are paired off.
In each pair, one individual delivers the instruction “Tell me who you are!” to the other. The receiver of the instruction then sets out to experience “who he is.” By remaining open to the experience of himself, he is “holding his question.”
Anything may occur to the individual holding his question though not necessarily who he truly is until enlightenment.
At this point, he has to tell his partner, as fully as is reasonably possible what he has become conscious of as a result of holding the question, “Who am I?” The partner meanwhile, after delivering the instruction, has been holding his attention on his contemplating partner full time. When his partner replies, he is to listen and understand as well as he can, but say nothing. When For him and the partner, who has been trying to experience himself, has completed telling what he has become conscious of, he continues trying to experience himself.
This cycle continues for five minutes. Then the roles are reversed and the former contemplator for him says “Tell me who you are!” to his partner. This is repeated at five minute intervals for 45 minutes.
The Advantages of Having a Partner
1. The live interaction, expecting response, helps to keep one at the task of trying to experience oneself.
2. By communicating things one is not but is identified with, these things vanish to the degree that they are received and understood by another individual. Untruth vanishes by presenting it to others: Truth remains. Thus one’s mental confusions are cleared by presenting to one’s partner whatever occurs to him as result of holding the question.
3. Only by presenting oneself to another can one’s consciousness of oneself grow.
4. The stability of the enlightenment experience is determined by the degree that one can and has presented himself to another.
Drugs and other mechanical techniques sometimes result in an enlightening experience, but because they are not brought on directly by the individual and are not fully expressed to an experienced by another individual error temporary in effect and only a memory remains.
The enlightened exercise structure provides the basic format for optimizing the principles of relating which results in rapid, deep enlightenment experiences.
This is a video Greg many years ago.
“Just listen to the still voice within. This is the mind to trust. This is god consciousness speaking, not the ego that is seeking recognition.”
