Anxiety & Resolution

Reference: Mindfulness Approach


Anxiety comes when a person is not certain or confident about the outcome. He is lacking confidence because he does not have clear guidelines or principles to follow. The basic guideline is logic consisting of a sense of continuity, harmony and consistency. In its place this person has confusion, which goes back to past experiences. Such experiences contain confusion that caused anxiety in the past.

The resolution of anxiety requires that one looks at past experiences of anxiety as far back as possible. The person spots the precise confusion present in each of those experiences and compiles a list of those confusions without trying to resolve them. This may take hours if not days.

A complete and precise list of all such confusions must be made first, before any effort is made to resolve.

The next action would be to meditate on that list with mindfulness to see if all these confusions point to a single basic confusion! The person meditates and spots the confusion that is uppermost in his mind. He then simply meditates on that confusion with mindfulness.

Reduce all those confusions to a basic confusion that must be resolved.

The person isolates things from that basic confusion that do not make sense. Such things are illogical because they contain discontinuities, disharmonies or inconsistencies. He traces each discontinuity, disharmony or inconsistency to gaps in awareness.

Meditate on the basic confusion to discover gaps in awareness.

The person looks at each gap more closely. If something comes up then fine, otherwise he moves on to find another gap to examine. All such gaps are interrelated anyway. As he continues to examine these gaps a missing piece will fall into place and, sooner or later, his anxiety will start to lessen.

Let the realization occur by itself without being forced.

The person then continues with this process until all anxiety is gone.


The Energy of Awareness


Reference: Mindfulness Approach


Being a disturbance, the awareness that fills the emptiness is full of ACTIVITY. This activity is expressed as continual oscillations between two states—perception and consciousness. We may refer to this continual activity as the energy of awareness. This may translate as ALERTNESS.

These oscillations repeat themselves interminably. Each repetition is a CYCLE. The rate of repetition is referred to as the FREQUENCY of oscillations.

It is postulated that, like the field, awareness also consists of “constant energy per cycle”. So the alertness to frequency ratio is constant based on similarity of awareness to the field.

At this moment we lack the methods to measure either the alertness or the frequency of awareness numerically; but it is easy to verify that under situations that require increased alertness, one would be consulting one’s perceptions at a faster rate to obtain higher consciousness of the situation.


Emptiness & Awareness


Reference: Mindfulness Approach


The physical field that fills the Emptiness as a disturbance, is aware of itself. Whereas the electromagnetic field is the physical aspect of the disturbance, awareness is the metaphysical aspect of the same disturbance. Thus, we have a division of reality into physical and metaphysical characteristics.

The concept of field is well explored with scientific precision in physics (please see Disturbance Theory). We may now explore the concept of awareness with equal precision in metaphysics.

The physical field is continually oscillating between electrical and magnetic characteristics to separate itself as a disturbance from emptiness. The awareness must also oscillate continually for the same reason. It is postulated that awareness oscillates between perception and consciousness.

Similar to the physical field, oscillations also give SUBSTANCE to awareness.

Perception starts out in the form of physical senses, but as it gets absorbed and assimilated in a mental matrix it produces a metaphysical consciousness. The consciousness then influences what the mind perceives. This interchange between perception and consciousness becomes obvious in the natural tendency in people to seek out what agrees with them.

Awareness also has inertia in the sense that a specific awareness tries to maintain itself. The characteristic inertia of awareness is determined by the frequency of oscillations.

The substance of awareness has the property of INERTIA.

As the frequency increases, the oscillations become denser, and the cycles of oscillation shrink. The increased “density” of oscillations shows up as increased inertia. The increase in inertia tends to “pin down” the awareness more in the sense of making it more “solid”.

Increase in inertia helps specific awareness maintain its status quo.


The Universal Viewpoint


Reference: Mindfulness Approach


On a scale, all values are measured from the reference point of zero. This works because zero has no value. The reference point of zero does not add anything to the value being measured.

Similarly, in this universe, all phenomena can be viewed objectively from the reference point of Emptiness. This works because Emptiness itself is absence of all phenomena. The reference point of Emptiness does not add anything to the phenomenon being viewed.

When one is looking from the viewpoint of emptiness one is fully aware of everything that fills the emptiness. That means one can see the proper ratios between things. In other words one rationally comprehends what is there and the relationships among those things.

We may say that Emptiness provides a Universal Viewpoint that is totally objective.




Reference: Mindfulness Approach and Disturbance Theory


The Heart Sutra in Buddhism defines EMPTINESS as no Birth no Death, no Being no Non-being, no Defilement no Purity, no Increasing no Decreasing.  In other words, in emptiness there is complete absence of any phenomena.

The viewpoint of emptiness is just that. It is totally fresh. It is completely clean. There are no preconceived notions, no fixed ideas, no bias, etc. In short, the concept of emptiness is not viewed through any filters. It is simply what it is.

From a scientific viewpoint, this is the ultimate reference point from which all phenomena is perceived objectively. No other reference point is required to understand emptiness. This is like the zero of a scale from which all values on that scale are measured.

A reference point aligns everything that follows, into order. In the absence of a reference point things devolve into confusion. It is common to assume an arbitrary reference point just to avoid the immediate confusion, even when it can’t resolve everything.

The Semitic GOD and the Scientology STATIC are arbitrary reference points. They are assumed to resolve the confusion of physical reality. But they cannot resolve the reality they represent. To understand the reality of GOD and/or STATIC a more basic reference point is needed.

The ultimate reference point is inherently understood. No further reference point is needed. Emptiness has that property of being inherenly understood because it denotes the absence of all realities. From this reference point it is possible to give an objective meaning to any phenomena.  Emptiness itself is not a phenomenon, just like zero is not a value.

EMPTINESS is the ultimate reference point from which all phenomena can be understood objectively.


The other fundamental concept that arises from the Heart Sutra of Buddhism is MUTUAL DEPENDENCY. Everything in this universe is dependent on everything else. In other words, everything in this universe is connected with everything else as if this universe is a continuum of infinite dimensions.

Thus, all things physical, metaphysical, mental, spiritual, etc., are part of the same continuum. This universe is a dynamic entity that is completely integrated.

The UNIVERSE is intrinsically continuous, harmonious and consistent.
