of Human Being
The possibility is
to discover that who you are is Immortal Being, that you are Present
before and after the life of the body.
I believe that most people are already in trance and the possibility
is to wake up from the trance. The trance induction starts with
the physical material universe, believing that it is solid, concrete
and real. Yet we already know from science, from Heisenberg and
Quantum physics, that the physical universe is an illusion. It is
not the way it appears.
It appears that there are separate, discrete objects in space, but
scientists say that if you look at it closely enough you will find
the "atom," and when you look at an atom closely enough,
you find that it is mainly empty space, In that space, smaller than
the atom, one finds, "protons," "neutrons,"
and "electrons." But when you again look closely enough,
you find either a particle or a wave, depending upon your point
of view. And it is blinking on and off!
So with just a slight shift in the spectral field of your eye, what
we are calling discrete, separate objects in the material universe
can be seen as a standing wave form, blinking on and off. It is
a trance induction. It is in illusion, a magic trick. It doesn't
Within this universal trance, there is a trance induction of the
human being. In the word itself, "human being" implies
that that is where being is. What about when the body disappears?
Does that mean being disappears? The possibility is to discover
that who you are is Immortal Being. That you are present before
and after the life of the body. But this can't be discovered as
long as you believe you are a [personality] number or a type. The
possibility is to wake up from the trance induction of the fixation.
The Enneagram is the western gift to the enlightenment process.
In the past, maybe one soul every-who-knows-how-many years woke
up. Now, the potential is here for every-one. The Enneagram gives
you the owner's manual [to the personality] so you can discover
you are not the machinery.
The western myth, as far as I see, starts with Adam and Eve. When
Adam and Eve are in the garden, they are happy, they are at one,
there is no self consciousness, there is a flowing with things.
But they are not Self Realized. Then the devil shows up. What does
the devil do? He says, "O.K., eat from the fruit of the tree
of knowledge of good and evil." What is this? This is the mind.
The mind is the duality of good and evil, right and wrong, on and
In eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge there is suddenly self-consciousness.
There is shame. In this moment of shame, they are out of the garden.
And in being out of the garden, their seed populates the earth and
destroys it. The mind, which has rebelled against God, is running
wild as the ruler. With the mind running wild as the ruler, we have
ignorance, poverty, mayhem, greed, selfishness, ecological devastation.
Finally the mind has to come back to its rightful place. It has
to give up this seat as the ruler, to God.
It is like sitting in the
movies. As long as you are watching the screen, watching the colored
lights flickering on and off, you can have the experience of feeling
sad and crying, or feeling afraid or angry. In the fascination with
the movie, there is never a turning away to see the light. If you
are willing to turn away from the movie, you find out that it is
What I have discovered is that most people don't want the movie
to disappear and therefore are not really interested in turning
towards the light. Unless the light appears as another object in
the movie. But since it is impossible to be both watching the movie
and turning towards the light, "the light" becomes another
object in the movie to be captured by mind. Once captured it becomes,
"my light, my truth."
Ultimately, finally, you find out that the objects of pleasure do
not leave you satisfied. They leave bitterness. They leave an aftertaste
of suffering. It may be pleasurable in the moment. But finally,
they are not satisfying. At that point, you are willing to turn
away from the movie and turn towards the source, turn towards the
