Successes from KHTK

I have started to hear about wonderful successes from the application of KHTK. These successes have come from applying the KHTK principles to oneself, and also from guiding others to apply these principles.

These principles sum up to spotting inconsistencies, looking at an inconsistency non-judgmentally without resistance, and continue looking in and around that area until no inconsistency remains.

The KHTK principles may be applied in simple discussions, and in normal conversations. This makes the discussion more meaningful, and a conversation more lively, bringing great relief at times. Please see Helping Somebody in Need.

The inconsistencies may be outlined as follows. See INCONSISTENCY

  1. Perception …..(Engram)
  2. Experience …..(Unwanted feelings & emotions)
  3. Information …..(Indoctrination)
  4. Hypothesis …..(Beliefs)
  5. Theory ……….(Doctrines)
  6. Principles …….(Fixed ideas)
  7. Axioms ……….(Fixed viewpoints)
  8. Self …………..(Fixed identity)

Engrams are inconsistencies at the beginning of the sequence above. These are very raw perceptions, which are not assimilated fully. Engrams come about because of too fast inflow of perceptions that cannot be properly assimilated. This happens when one encounters an impact, or an unexpected surprise, that is overwhelming. Accidents and other traumatic incidents might leave such impressions.

The activation of a memory with engramic content may cause severe anxiety, such as, PTSD. The person may not be able to look at such an area of psychological trauma because just the idea of looking at it may cause anxiety. However, when mind is allowed to unwind naturally one may gradually overcome such traumas without difficulty. See Unstacking.

There does not seem to be that many engrams in an average person. But, just a single engram may make life unbearable. When the mind presents an engram it must be experienced gradually, non-judgmentally, and without putting up any resistance. This may relieve associated unwanted feelings and emotions too. See Exercises in Looking Set I and Exercises in Looking Set II. Start with an exercise that is least difficult to do.

As we go down the above sequence, the inconsistencies seem to become more and more assimilated into the personality of a person. They become more difficult to spot. However, there are always indicators, such as, feeling of discomfort, that may lead one to these inconsistencies. See Approach to Looking #1 and Approach to Looking #2.

When we start to approach the bottom of this sequence, the attention seem to move toward inconsistencies in the wider sphere of culture, history, philosophy, etc. Here one starts to get interested in a broad spectrum of subjects, and starts to address inconsistencies on large scale.

When we reach the very bottom of this sequence, the inconsistencies in the physical universe start to become more appealing. One starts to wonder how much this universe is molding our psyche and, thus, influencing our very perception. Here we come a full circle, Here is the realm of science. Science puts forth a wonderful method to address fundamental inconsistencies. See The Scientific Method & Humanities.

In KHTK we go back to this scientific approach, applying it at both physical and mental levels. It is presented as looking non-judgmentally without resistance. The scientific approach in this form was first announced by Buddha 2600 years ago. It is a dynamic approach of identifying and addressing inconsistencies as they occur in life or, as they are presented by the mind.

The key to this approach is not assuming anything, but looking with mindfulness whatever the attention takes us to at any moment. This allows one to resolve the inconsistencies in the sequence they are stacked up in the mind.

So far, this approach seems to be working beautifully. KHTK is available freely on this blog. It can be learned easily and applied by anybody with great benefit.
