“KEX” Exercises

KEX stands for “Knowledge exercise.” The “KEX” series of exercises are designed specifically to allow misinterpretations to bubble up into our awareness, and get sorted out automatically. These exercises are derived from Sadhguru’s Isha Kriya, which you may try out first.

1. KEX #1: Detachment

2. KEX #2: Responsibility

3. KEX #3: Mental Process

4. KEX #4: Unwanted Condition


KEX Exercises and the Mind

Just like a picture on the computer screen is made up of physical pixels (picture elements); a picture on the mind’s screen is made up of mental pixels. The perception that enters our sense channels comes together in the mind and gets formed into these mental pixels.

The physical pixels on a computer screen are spread in two spatial dimensions. They have additional dimensions of sight with sub-dimensions of color, brightness, hue, etc. Therefore, these physical pixels may be arranged in a matrix containing these dimensions.

We may postulate the mental pixels to be spread in three spatial dimensions, with additional dimensions and sub-dimensions of sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, etc. Therefore, the mental pixels form a mental matrix that is incredibly more complex than any physical matrix based on sight alone. All that we perceive and experience gets continually formed into mental pixels that are then added to this mental matrix.

The mind can, therefore, be modeled as a huge and complex matrix made up of mental pixels.

The mental matrix continually consolidates the duplicate mental pixels obtained from different perceptions and keeps itself efficiently organized. Therefore, no perception is stored as a simple copy of the original. All perceptions are broken down into mental pixels, which are then absorbed into the mental matrix.

Original associations are maintained in the mental matrix that allow the perceptions to be reconstructed as memory. A recalled memory is always a reorganization of mental pixels per stored associations, which is then presented to one’s attention. The mental pixels may also be associated as new visualizations.

The mental pixels are reorganized consciously or unconsciously into memories and visualizations, such as, dreams, day dreams, goals, imagination, etc.

All memories are made up of original associations among mental pixels that existed at the time of perception. They reflect the associations existing in the external world. The external world is stable and consistent. Therefore, the associations that make up the memories throughout the mental matrix are also stable and consistent. They form the basis of the rest of our visualizations.

A wrong association among mental pixels can occur in the mental matrix. If such mis-association occurs at the moment of receiving the original perceptions, then that mis-association becomes the basis of all subsequent visualizations. These fundamental mis-associations can also influence the intellect; so, the intellect alone cannot be relied upon to handle them. The effort then boils down to allowing the mis-associations to bubble up into awareness.

A person becomes aware of mis-associations and misinterpretations by accompanying inconsistency, disharmony and discontinuity. As he becomes aware of the full extent of that misinterpretation it gets sorted out rapidly.

These “KEX” exercises are designed so that mis-associations may bubble up into our awareness and get sorted out automatically.
