KEX #4: Unwanted Condition


A person may have an unwanted condition that is now persisting, but there was a time when that condition was not there. Therefore that condition has a beginning. Either that condition developed over a period of time, or it precipitated all of a sudden following some event. In either case, there is a context associated with that unwanted condition. As the person becomes aware of that context the unwanted condition starts to resolve.

All unwanted conditions have a beginning and a context. Awareness of the exact beginning and context may help resolve that condition rapidly.

This exercise is similar to the earlier KEX exercises, except for what you mentally say to yourself (see below). 


The Posture

Sit in a straight-backed chair with feet flat on the floor and arms resting comfortably in the lap. The knees are positioned parallel to the shoulders. This alternate posture allows the body to remain stably erect even in deep state of concentration. During this exercise, focus your attention mildly between the eyebrows.


The Exercise

In this exercise you simply BE there and face all perceptions, sensations, feelings and emotions without avoiding, resisting, suppressing, or denying them.

In addition you do the following.
… (1) Inhale and exhale gently, slowly.
… (2) With each inhalation, mentally say to yourself: “This [condition] was not there before.” The inhalation should last the whole duration of that thought.
… (3) With each exhalation, mentally say to yourself: “This [condition] is there now.” The exhalation should last the whole duration of that thought.

Have some attention on that condition but let the awareness bubble up by itself. Do this exercise for at least 20 minutes at a stretch so that your energies get properly organized.

OPTIONAL: You may do this exercise while walking on a treadmill at a gentle pace. Make sure you have a safety cord attached to you, in case you stumble. Your body is generating more energy on a treadmill and that helps organize the energies better.


Please Note

This is an experimental exercise that may help explore and resolve the unwanted condition.

Do this exercise for 20 minutes, twice a day, for 1 week.  After that you may extend this exercise by one week at a time, depending on its merit.

You may then either go to a new exercise that is available, or go back to a previous exercise, already completed, to consolidate the results.

When returning to a previous exercise always do it for at least one week, and then extend it by one week at a time, depending on its merit.
