Meditation from Mystery to Knowing

Reference: KHTK Postulates

This meditation is done under the Discipline of Mindfulness. It helps the viewpoint of a person move from being in mystery to a state of full knowing.

During this meditation, the person starts by focusing on unconsciousness that denotes total mystery. Then he works his way up by focusing sequentially on mystery (unconsciousness, waiting), fixated on sex, eating, symbols, thinking, effort, and emotions, on looking, on knowing about, on not-knowing, and finally, on full knowing. 

At each level the meditation is resolving some sort of fixation. If you meditate at a level for a few minutes and find no fixations, simply move to the next level. If a fixation comes up then simply be aware of it and continue to meditate using the discipline of mindfulness. You will know when that fixation is resolved. You then move to the next level of focus.

You go through all these levels in sequence again and again. It may take weeks or months until you suddenly find that there are no fixations any more. As you make progress you will feel an increasing sense of freedom. Finally you will have a great sense of freedom.

“Meditate on the notion of mystery.”

A mystery is anything that remains unexplained or unknown. The anatomy of Mystery is an inability to predict, followed by terrific confusion and then total blackout. The person just shut it all off and said, “I won’t look at it anymore”. Mystery is the level of always pretending there’s something to know earlier than the Mystery. There really is nothing to know back of a Mystery, except the Mystery itself. Meditate on mystery until you recognize that it is a mystery. There is nothing earlier; you just have to look closely at what is there.

“Meditate on the mystery of unconsciousness.”

Unconsciousness is a condition wherein the organism is uncoordinated to greater or lesser degree in its analytical process and motor controls, such as, under anesthesia or in death. You meditate on the mystery of unconsciousness to see what comes up. Meditate on unconsciousness until the feeling of mystery starts to resolve.

“Meditate on the mystery of waiting.”

Waiting is inactivity or being in a state of repose, until something expected happens. You meditate on waiting to see if any mystery comes up. If so then meditate on it until the feeling of mystery starts to resolve.

“Meditate on the fixation on sex.”

When a person thinks he is not going to survive, he will go into the “sexing-ness band”. If you starve cattle for a while they’ll start to breed, and if you feed them too well, they’ll stop breeding. This shows that the fixation on sex is closely associated with the anxiety to survive. Meditate on fixation on sex and anxiety to survive until whatever came up starts to resolve.

Meditate on the fixation on eating.”

Animals eat animals to stay alive. This is their level of knowledge. Here we have fixation on eating and the knowledge associated with it is very condensed. This is what we understand as the dog eat dog world. One has no appreciation of other people and things, other than as means for their own survival. Meditate on any fixation related to eating to survive until whatever came up starts to resolve.

Meditate on the fixation on symbols.”

A symbol contains mass, meaning and mobility and it is in motion relative to some orientation point. At this level a person figures with symbols. His sense of knowledge is very literal, and it doesn’t go any deeper than the surface. Meditate on any fixation on symbols until whatever came up starts to resolve.

Meditate on the fixation on thinking.”

At this level a person is fixated on thinking.  He is, forever, trying to figure things out. There is no progress because he cannot work or act. This is the “figure-figure” case. Meditate on any fixation on thinking until whatever came up starts to resolve.

Meditate on the fixation on effort.”

At this level a person got to touch everything and feel everything before he can know anything. He’ll get a mental image picture of a past incident in order to get an idea of what is happening to him in the present. He cannot observe for himself. Meditate on any fixation on effort until whatever came up starts to resolve.

Meditate on the fixation on emotion.”

At this level we have to have knowledge by emotion. A person has all kinds of emotions about things. He knows things by his emotional reaction to them. Meditate on any fixation on emotion until whatever came up starts to resolve.

“Meditate on looking.”

At this level we have to look to find out as opposed to simply knowing. Meditate on looking and not simply knowing until whatever came up starts to resolve.

“Meditate on knowing about.”

At this level a person has indirect knowledge of something as opposed to knowing it intimately. In this process you meditate on things you only know about indirectly until whatever came up starts to resolve.

“Meditate on not-knowing.”

There are things that we don’t know anything about and use speculation in their place. Then we start to believe that speculation to be the reality. In this process you meditate on knowledge that is speculation only until whatever came up starts to resolve.

“Meditate on knowing.”

There are things that you are so intimately familiar with that they have become part of your nature. You don’t even notice them. In this process you meditate on things that have become second nature to you until whatever came up starts to resolve.

The Postulates 21 – 25

Reference: Course on the Universe

When we apply the method of SUBJECT CLEARING to the general knowledge we inevitably end up with the following postulates. 

.

POSTULATE # 21: The basic self is the attention field that encompasses the bodies and their mental matrices.

COROLLARY: The body and its mental matrix form an identity that has a viewpoint.

The attention field is not discrete—it exists as a single continuum. Within this continuum exist the discrete identities formed out of bodies and their mental matrices. The body acts as the interface between Akasha and the Attention field.  The mental matrix sorts out he metaphysical energy converted from the physical energy of Akasha by the body. The essential function of the identity is to build up the the attention field—the basic self—such that it reflects the universe of Akasha.

Christianity has the concept of a spiritual soul separable from the physical body based on “out-of-body” experiences. But the “out-of-body” experiences occur when the viewpoint of the identity is no longer fixated on the body and it can move around in the attention field outside the body. The “soul” is essentially the viewpoint of an identity. We think that we are these discrete viewpoints of identities, but the true self is the continuum of the attention field. 

.

POSTULATE # 22: The body forms the interface between the universal field of Akasha and the Attention field. 

COROLLARY: The body converts physical energy of Akasha into metaphysical energy of the Attention field.

Body’s sense organs interact with the external “physical” energy of Akasha and produce electro-chemical signals that travel to the cells of the body. The cells transform these electro-chemical signals into internal “metaphysical” energy to be assimilated by the mental matrix into perceptions. The mental matrix then directs the body to interact with the environment in specific ways to resolve anomalies in perceptions. These actions of the body as directed by the mental matrix are called ‘karma’. ‘Karma’ ceases when the anomalies in the mental matrix are resolved. The body thus serves as the “physical-metaphysical” interface.

.

POSTULATE # 23: The mental matrix assimilates the metaphysical energy from the body into its matrix of perceptions.

COROLLARY: The anomalies in the matrix continually generate instructions for the body to act in a way to resolve them.

The mental matrix surrounds the body as an aura. It assimilates the incoming “metaphysical” energy with the existing stored energy to generate perceptions in real time. The assimilation merges alike perceptions together. Gaps among perceptions are filled with ‘tentative’ projections along with the generation of perplexities, doubts and questions. These then initiate actions to resolve the anomalies. 

This assimilation also leads to the formation of concepts and general notions that are retained to speed up subsequent assimilations. This is the function called “intellect”. The perceptions that are fully assimilated become continuous, harmonious and consistent like the universe they are reflecting. Such perceptions may be called “wisdom”.  They become part of the attention field. The purpose of the mental matrix is to strengthen the attention field by resolving all anomalies.

.

POSTULATE # 24: The attention field is the outcome of assimilation of all the mental matrices in the universe.

COROLLARY: The purpose of the attention field is to reflect the universe of Akasha in its entirety.

All identities (bodies and mental matrices) in the universe are working towards building the attention field. As their perceptions are assimilated they become part of the attention field. So, underlying all the discrete identities we have the continuum of attention field. We may say that the attention field is essentially observing the Akasha and duplicating it through all the identities. 

The Akasha is continuous, harmonious and consistent, and so is the Attention field in its perception, and this forms the basis of the metaphysics of logic. Both Akasha and Attention field last for the duration of the universal cycle. 

.

POSTULATE # 25: The discrete identities are just the temporary aspects of self. The actual self is the continuous attention field. 

COROLLARY: The identities disintegrate and reintegrate, but the attention field continues as the core of self.

The identities are impermanent in that they take birth, they grow, they get old and die. When identities die they disintegrate into atoms and monads. These atoms and monads then reintegrate into new identities. Thus comes about the process of birth. No identity ever continues forever. The only permanent aspect is the attention field. The attention field participates neither in death, nor in birth. It simply continues as the basis of self. The whole purpose of death and birth of identities is for the physical-metaphysical interface to continue to evolve. This interface is there to build up the attention field.

Knowing yourself is an ever continuing process that doesn’t stop with death. It is not a stretch to say that all of us may, ultimately, share the same basic self. This confirms the ancient view expressed in the Vedas.

The Postulates 16 – 20

Reference: Course on the Universe

When we apply the method of SUBJECT CLEARING to the general knowledge we inevitably end up with the following postulates. 

.

POSTULATE # 16: The universe is one, so it is continuous throughout, and all its dimensions are harmonious among themselves with no inconsistencies.

COROLLARY: All parts of the universe are continuous, harmonious and consistent.

The universe is “continuous throughout” means that there is continuity between matter and space at the boundary of an object even when the object appears to be discrete (see POSTULATE # 11). All dimensions of the universe are continuous as well. There are no gaps or breaks.

Different properties, such as, mass, volume, color, etc., may seem to belong to different dimensions, but in an object, all such properties exist in complete harmony with each other. Therefore the relationships among them may be represented by mathematical formulas.

Any part of the universe is consistent with any other part. If there appears to be an inconsistency between parts of the universe then some perception or understanding is missing. The error should be found and corrected.

.

POSTULATE # 17: Like all material forms in the universe, the human body also contain inertia, motion and force.

COROLLARY: The imbalance between inertia and motion generates internal force.

There is a definite relationship between inertia and motion (see POSTULATE # 12). An object of infinite inertia shall have no absolute motion even when it appears to have relative motion. On the same principle, an energy form of no inertia shall have infinite motion on the absolute scale.  The principle is: the higher is the inertia of the form, the lesser is its absolute motion. Light has little inertia and, therefore, its motion is very high. Matter has high inertia, and, therefore, its motion has a very low range compared to the motion of light.  

Any imbalance between inertia and motion appears to give rise to force, and the motion of the form may be controlled through control of its inertia. This principle may underlie in controlling the motion of the UFOs. The ratio of change in motion to change in inertia appears to be the “square of the speed of light.” Thus, it takes infinitesimal shifts in inertia to control the motion of the UFO. The change in inertia must apply to the UFO and its occupants for intense accelerations not to be felt by the occupants.

All animation in the body is most likely produced by infinitesimal shifts in inertia. This may be the leverage that thought energy has over physical energy. 

If we look at a system, which contains both push and pull, its overall motion changes little unless its inertia also changes. Therefore, “relative motion” among planets contributes in a good measure to the “illusion” of reality that we encounter.

.

POSTULATE # 18: The human viewpoint starts out being centered on the human body but expands from there.

COROLLARY: The viewpoint can locate itself anywhere within the attention field.

The viewpoint was introduced in the explanation under the POSTULATE # 10. There is no viewpoint until the universe has evolved to the point of self-awareness at the level of humans. Therefore, self-awareness is not an inherent characteristic of the universe. Self-awareness is an outcome of evolution operating on certain natural principles. It also means that humans have not departed from some “ideal state” at the beginning of the universe. Humans are simply charting a new evolutionary path.

At first, the viewpoint is centered on the body when the body is born and its attention is on growing the body. During the childhood the attention moves out in the attention field surrounding the body (see the POSTULATE # 9). The child can easily visualize from a viewpoint outside the body. “Out-of-body” experiences come about naturally. Such experiences simply mean that the viewpoint has ceased to be fixated on the body. 

In cultures, where attention remains fixated on the body for one reason or another, the natural development of “out-of-body” experiences is suppressed. But, even in such cultures, near-death experiences of exteriorization are common. Such experiences have led to the belief in ‘eternal soul’. Such beliefs get further embellished with ideas of heaven and hell, and give rise to religions. 

The human viewpoint can free itself from fixations on the body and be at any point in the attention field while alive. In a limited sense, we are familiar with such “out-of-body” views through the faculty of visualization. But such views may become very real with concentration.

.

POSTULATE # 19: The viewpoint reflects the general state of the mental matrix that fills the attention field.

COROLLARY: The viewpoint can move freely in the attention field.

Attention has to do with interest. Its range depends on the range of interest within the field of perception. In animals, the attention field extends to varying distances from their body and it is focused on eating and survival. The attention field in humans is much more complex and has many dimensions. The human attention field may extend out of the body to cover the entire universe.

The attention helps generate perceptions. The five major perceptions are: vision, sound, touch, taste, smell. These perceptions are received, integrated together and assimilated in the mental matrix. The mental matrix derives the impressions of the environment through these perceptions. It extends throughout the attention field filling it with these impressions. It tries to construct the impressions to reflect the environment as accurately as possible. Any gaps in impressions are filled through tentative projections.

The viewpoint represents the general state of the mental matrix. It is free to move anywhere in the vast attention field and view from there. The human viewpoint can perceive not only with the five physical senses, but it also uses its mental faculties of evaluation, visualization and projection to perceive in many more dimensions. However, it tends to get fixated in those locations where perceptions are not fully assimilated and anomalies exist.

.

POSTULATE # 20: The purpose of the human viewpoint is to evolve into the universal viewpoint.

COROLLARY: The human viewpoint evolves by resolving anomalies (discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies).

The universal viewpoint is achieved when the attention field has expanded to the size of the universe and it is filled with accurate impressions of the entire universe. Just like the universe, the impressions in the attention field are also continuous, harmonious and consistent (see the POSTULATE # 16). The mental matrix of the universal viewpoint is assimilated throughout, and it quickly assimilates all incoming perceptions. 

The human attention field is nearly as large as the universe, but it consists of many anomalies in its impressions. It has focused mainly on the physical aspects of the universe; the metaphysical aspects are not integrated into the picture. In most humans the viewpoint still needs to free itself from fixation on the body. The fixation exists because the scientific focus has been on the physical aspects of the body and the metaphysical aspects are not integrated into that understanding. The is the biggest anomaly to be resolved at the moment.

The logic of the universal viewpoint is based on the continuity, harmony and consistency of the universe. This is the logic needed to evolve the human viewpoint toward the universal viewpoint. All these postulates are written to reveal the continuity, harmony and consistency of the universe. They represent the “universal viewpoint” as closely as possible. The scientific method also attempts to represent the universal viewpoint by noticing and resolving discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies.

The Postulates 11 – 15

Reference: Course on the Universe

When we apply the method of SUBJECT CLEARING to the general knowledge we inevitably end up with the following postulates. 

.

POSTULATE # 11: The space is more than the awareness of the visible material forms and the distances between them. The space, in general, describes the extents of energy and matter. [1]

COROLLARY: Matter is the visible form of condensed energy. Energy, otherwise, is invisible.

We look at the space beyond our planet and consider it to be “empty” except where clouds, stars, planets, etc., appear. But, in reality, space is always filled with invisible energy where it is not filled with matter. We may say that space exists only as extents of energy (matter is condensed energy), and that there is no space in the absence of energy.

In Euclidean geometry, the character of space is assumed to be uniformly rigid, because it is mainly concerned with the shape and volume of material objects. But space has a variable character depending on what is filling it. Einstein touched upon this varying character of space but only in mathematical terms. He did not provide a scientific explanation for space.

We perceive matter to be defined by a sharp boundary, but there is continuation of space from matter to surrounding energy. This is not visible to us. Similarly, changes in condensation of energy in space are not visible to us.

.

POSTULATE # 12: The time is more than the awareness of change and motion. Time actually describes the duration of the invisible energy and the visible matter. [2]

COROLLARY: Infinite duration at a location in space defines absolute rest. Lesser durations imply motion.

A “moving object” is continually changing its location in space. In doing so it endures at each location for a moment. A slow moving object endures longer at a location than a fast moving object. The duration of massive objects, like heavenly bodies, is quite high because they are very hard to push away from their locations. The duration of massless light, on the other hand, is negligible as obvious from the “speed of light.” Therefore, there is a direct relationship between duration (time) and mass (inertia) in an absolute sense.

Also, the higher is the duration, the slower is the innate motion. Such innate motions of energy and matter are absolute in nature. For example, the “speed of light” is absolute and not relative. On the other hand, the speed of Earth around the Sun is relative. The absolute motions of the earth and the sun are more or less inversely proportional to their durations, and, therefore, inversely proportional to their masses.

The duration of matter forms a very narrow band in which we observe all the motion of matter. Similarly, the duration of electromagnetic energy forms another narrow band in which motion varies per the frequency of energy. The two bands is so far apart in magnitude that from the reference point of the “matter band” the constant of ‘speed of light’ is applied to the whole electromagnetic band of energy because any differences due to difference in frequencies cannot be perceived. For the same reason, the differences in the speed of matter cannot be perceived from the reference point of the “electromagnetic band”, and all matter appears to be at standstill.

.

POSTULATE # 13: The cause-effect is a dimension of the universe that describes the direction in which evolution is taking place. [3]

COROLLARY: There is nothing outside the universe that could have caused or created the universe.

If there is a God, it would be an aspect that is integrated into the universe (see POSTULATE # 1). The interminable sequences of cause and effect could be circular with no beginning or end; but none of the cause can lie outside the universe. There is no such thing as “Uncaused Cause.” Therefore, cause-effect should be looked upon as a dimension of the universe. Cause-effect is not a simple duality like hot-cold. It is represented by a continuous scale like the temperature scale.

Cause and effect describe the two ends of the scale of evolution. This scale extends to infinity in either direction. Each point on the scale is the cause of the next point to the right. There is no absolute cause or effect. Thus, cause-effect simply describes the nature of this universe. 

Cause is always connected with its effect by some route, even when that route is a long drawn one. This is represented in the Vedic theory of Karma. On a cosmic scale, karma is a very complex cycle of action that is moving forward towards its completion in slow motion. There is a sense of inevitability associated with it. If that cycle is hindered then all kind of repercussions result from it. Again those repercussions force the movement of that cycle toward its completion.

When there is an unwanted condition, one must trace it back to its cause before one can resolve it fully. When one avoids doing this, the unwanted condition can become very complicated. It may take many lifetimes to resolve all unwanted conditions and achieve enlightenment, but this a problem of energy and not of any particular identity.

.

POSTULATE # 14: The universal impulse-energy field of Akasha evolves as the spiritual-physical dimension of the universe.

COROLLARY: Neither physical is the product of spiritual, nor spiritual is the product of physical, because the two aspects lie on the same dimension.

The human body represents the physical dimension, and the self-awareness seems to represent the spiritual dimension; but these are not two separate dimensions. Both of these aspects have evolved from the universal impulse-energy field of Akasha. One cannot say that self-awareness has created the universe.

The spiritual and physical aspects are actually integrated in everything living and non-living. Spirit, mind and body are aspects of a single system, even when they are dealt with separately.  In Abrahamic religions the physical world is thought to be the product of God; but God is the product of self-awareness. In Scientology, MEST is thought to be the product of THETA; but THETA and MEST evolve together in this universe.

It is thought that the soul survives the death of the body; but the truth is that, upon death, both body and soul disintegrate into atoms and monads, which get recycled into new bodies and souls. Neither the same soul, nor the same body regenerates after death.

.

POSTULATE # 15: All dualities in human experience may be expanded as the dimensions of awareness.

COROLLARY: A dimension may be represented by a scale that extends to infinity in either direction.

“Continuous and Discrete” is a very fundamental duality of energy. Electromagnetic (EM) waves of low frequency were dealt by Maxwell as if they formed a continuum. But, as Einstein showed, these EM waves gradually become quantized at increasing frequencies. This means that the EM waves increasingly exhibit discrete particle-like properties similar to the atoms in a volume of gas. This was the discovery that won Einstein the Nobel Prize.

“Static and dynamic” is another interesting duality. Static is related to some potential state. As this potential state starts to manifest, we start to observe increasingly kinetic (dynamic) states as in a pendulum. In Scientology, we have THETA-MEST theory where THETA-MEST is more like the spiritual-physical dimension. But Scientology, superimposes the idea of static-dynamic on THETA-MEST. THETA is seen as static and MEST as dynamic; but both THETA and MEST can be static or dynamic. Superimposing static-dynamic on THETA-MEST is a serious flaw.

“Good-bad” is a duality seen in Christian morality in black and white terms. But “good-bad” as a dimension allows one to understand the degrees of goodness and badness in any individual. This leads to much better moral judgment about ta person. Similarly treating other dualities, such as, “right-wrong,” “life-death,”“true-false,” etc., as dimensions leads to much better understanding.

.

[1] SCIENTOLOGY FACTOR # 5. Thus there is space created, for the definition of space is: viewpoint of dimension. And the purpose of a dimension point is space and a point of view.

[2] SCIENTOLOGY FACTOR # 21. From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points and this, regulated, is TIME.

[3] SCIENTOLOGY FACTOR # 1. Before the beginning was a Cause and the entire purpose of the Cause was the creation of effect.
