Declaration of I ntent

God is both the Source of Infi n ity a nd Infin ity itself, both the Most H i g h a n d Supreme Creator and the enti rety of Creation . I revere the Most H i g h and ded i cate th is book to the wel l being of h u m a n ity. It is my I ntention that th i s book u pl ifts and strengthens a l l who read it. Disclaimer

The i nform ati on presented is truth as I understa n d it. It is n ot a substitute for you r own sense of truth , your own research and your own u n iq u e viewpo i nt. As a h u m a n bei ng, the a uthor is prone to error. Th erefore, ta ke th is book as a tool for deeper d iscovery, not for the d iscovery itself. As you e m ba rk on th is journey be ca l m a n d ki nd to you rself a nd others to the best of you r a b i l ity.

You r Relationship to I nfi nity

Infi n ity is Everyth i n g , therefore it is my only point of reference . My rel ationship to it is i m mersed i n everyth ing I a m a nd do in eve ryday l ife . I nfin ity i s Absol ute. I t is the o n ly th ing not su bject to relativity. There is no worldly a uthority. I a m a nswerable and accou ntable to the most High on ly. The S u p reme Creator of U n i verses is both the Source of Infi n ity and is everyth i n g "with i n " it. Th is is not some attitude lea rned in books or from teachers but one cu ltivated th roug h Med itation, Contemplation a n d u n bending, ete rn a l ly focussed dedication a n d devotion to the highest truth no matter whether that h ig h est truth agrees with my or any oth ers opinion or not . You ca n a rrive a t t h e hig hest truth o f truths by com b i n i n g the power of you r own Intention with Devotion to the Divine as yo u u ndersta nd it. Th i s ca n but does not have to be related to a ny rel ig ious or spiritual path . You have th is in herent a b i l ity.

Infi n ity i s . Peri od . Anyth ing after the " is" is not Infi n i ty but a n a spect of it. One such aspect is that endless expa nse of m u lti ple U n i verses and D i mensions. In such an awesome context u p-down, left- rig ht, s m a l l ­ big, me-other, i m po rta nt- u n i m porta nt, past-future is h i l a ri ously a rtificial and relative con cepts. What is " b i g "? H ow "big" is Planet Earth com pa red to the H u ma n Body? How "big" is Planet Earth com pa red to the Ga laxy? What is true depends on Context. The only a bsol ute is Existe nce itself. Gods project is so - Jge that it's easy to "get lost" in it - which is why -- 1 --

one fixed point of reference, one-a bsol ute and un m ovi ng, etern a l l y rel iable point of o rie ntation a nd g u idance rem a i n s . I someti mes symbol ize this Absolute as a light s h i n i n g etern a l ly. The p ri m e aspect of the M ost High is rad i a nt Love . Th i s Love is a n en ergy s o profound a n d intense that it h a s the power t o create a l l o f these worlds and sou ls. To some all of th is may sou nd mystica l but it's actua l ly q u ite practica l . When a "prob l e m " a ppears i n d a i ly l ife, I contrast it with I nfi n i ty. What is my "prob l e m " com pa red t o I nfi n ity? In moments I recogn ize t h e true depth a nd height of l ife as compared to my "problem" I ca n 't help but break out i n laug hter. Put i nto proper perspective my "personal issues" a re noth ing but a tiny dot of i n sign ificance and I move on with rel ief. In the presence of th is Force that creates U n iverses, no " p roblem" ca n persist. In l ig ht of the outra geous abu nda nce, prospe rity and bea uty of I nfi n ity a l l ea rthly importances, g a i n s and pains pa le. Infi n ity is all that was, is a n d ever wi l l be. It is one, und ivided . Some say Infi n ity is "everyth ing a n d noth i n g ". S o m e descri be it as a vast noth ing ness. But that is actua l ly a l ready one split too ma ny. Si nce "noth i n g " is also someth ing, namely a bu nch of "noth ingn ess", one ca n on ly say that I nfi n ity is Everything . Pe ri od . The oneness of all, a long with the excla mation "Period!" sup ports the m i nd i n not getting lost i n all ki nds of abstractions a n d secondary considerations. The sa me goes for anything else. Many spea k of " Lig ht" and " D a rkness" but as there is o n ly one, there is o n ly rad ia nt Light. " Da rkn ess" as a thing does not -- 2 --

exist. One ca nnot "shine darkness into a roo m " or tu rn on a "da rkn ess-switch ". " Darkness" is merely a lower g rad ient of light on a sca le, but it is sti l l Lig ht, even if to you r eyes it sometimes a ppears as if there is none. All "with i n " Infi n ity always changes. Infinity itself is the o n ly th i n g that never chan ges, it j ust is. The m o re you refer to that wh ich is uncha n g i n g , the more you refer to absolute truth , as opposed to cha n g i ng truth and relative truth . I n th is sense the ocea n is " m o re rea l " th an its single waves . I nfi n ity is the a bsol ute of mathe matics, physics, p h i l osophy, rel i g ion, psychology and spi ritual ity. But i n this book I wou l d l i ke to advertise i t a s p racti ca lly usefu l on a very rea l, person a l a nd d ay-to-day leve l . I n fact I attri bute the entirety of my worl d ly success and i n ner happi ness to it. I have long ago g iven u p trying t o be smarter t h a n it. I t teaches me h u m i l ity. Why? Beca use conta i n ed with i n it is the creative force that has taken care of tri l lions of l ives . It teaches me that i n o rder to expand I ca n be m o re l i ke it. Th at would mean to stop focussi ng on that ti ny dot with i n the circle a n d become aware o f more . I t teaches me that a nyth i ng one ca n i ma g ine has some form of existen ce somewhere . It teaches me that every g ra i n o f sa nd conta i n s I nfi n ity a n d th at, from a nother viewpoi n t, a n enti re U n i verse has the size of a g ra i n of sa n d . It teaches me that, in a hologra p h i c sense, when I have a problem with one little thing, i n that mo ment i n time, I have a problem with everything and when I have love for one little thing, i n that moment I have lo ve for everything.

It teaches me that, as a n aspect of Infinity, there a re thousa nds of th i n gs I cou l d be doing today, thousands of paths I could be ta ki ng i n any g i ven moment, tri l l ions of th ings I cou l d be seeing, thinking, heari n g , choosi n g . -- 3 --

You a re a u n ique viewpoint of I nfi n ity a n d in th is way con nected to al l-that-is forever. So from a l l -that-is, choose wisely what you wish to dedicate you rself to . As a h u m a n stro l l i n g through the S u perma rket of the U n iverse you probably won 't ch oose every item i n every aisle. That m ig ht b e overwhel m i n g . And you pro ba b ly won 't be choosing " n oth i ng " lest someon e choose for you . And even " n o choice" is a choice. So it see ms that as a h u m a n you have a choice a bout everyth i n g except choice itself - that is the o n ly th ing you ca n not switch off. U ndersta nd that choice is a matter of intent/decision not a matter of desi re, i n the sense of long i ng or need i ness. When yo u desi re someth ing you a re i m plying a lack, i m plying Infi n ity is lacki n g , i m plying that the thing desired is not ava i l a b l e in th e I nfi n i te Su perma rket. Pa radoxica l ly, desire separates us from that wh ich we desi re . Choice is not a m atter of resisti n g something either. When you resist someth ing you a re focussi ng on it a nd thereby g iving it more i m porta n ce a nd rea l i ty tha n you wou l d l i ke to . Paradoxica l l y, resista nce d raws towa rds us the th i ngs we do not desire . If in the S uperma rket you a re busy fighti ng the butcher a n d h is meat you are where yo u say you don't want to be: At the butch er, butcheri ng yo urself. Th e comedy of l ife i s not g etti ng what we wa nt but instead getti n g what we don 't want. Relief from sufferi ng comes from relaxing Desire on the one end and Resista n ce on the other end, Relaxing both Attach ment a n d Aversion (wh ich a re actua l l y two sides of the sa me coin . Having a n aversion towa rds one th i n g equa ls havi ng a des i re towa rds an oth er th i n g a n d vice-versa ) . Rather tha n strongly desi ri ng someth i n g one then merely chooses to focus on a

-- 4 --

specific rea l ity (that aspect of Infi n ity) . Rather tha n resisti ng someth i n g o n e then merely chooses to stop focussing on a specific rea lity (that aspect of Infi n ity) . So relax. Sea rch for a better l ife i m p l i es a l ife insufficient, attracts more of a life i nsufficient. Relax the wants a n d not-wa nts, at least just a l ittle and be at pea ce with l ife as it is. Also ask you rself: What is my Relationship with Infinity?

The Sca le of Energy Levels

As everyth i ng is Infin ity everyth ing is al so Energy. The physica l universe with its space and ti me, its objects, its nature, its people, its pla nets, its u n i verses is energy. The non -physica l u n iverse of thoug ht, emotio n , spirit a nd va rious pla nes is energy. That one energy manifests spectra l ly in m a ny d ifferent forms, sha pes, q u a l ities, rad iations, densities. An a na logy : Steam, Water and Ice a re one th i n g manifesti ng i n different q u a l ities. The prem ise of th is boo k is that there a re clea rly defina ble, perceivable and achieva b l e qual ities or "levels" o f energy and that each level corresponds with . . . •

specific states o f m i n d a n d emotion



specific words, behaviours a nd actions



specific surro u nd i ngs, environments, o bjects and places



specific q u a l ities, moods a n d i ntentions



specific methods of " m oving u pward "



a nd specific m odes of perception a n d truth

These a re a lso levels of consciousness, of emotion or levels of "vibration ". Everyth i n g that exists g ives off a certa i n rad i ation that can be defi ned on a sca le a n d i n comparison to other items. Depen d i n g on where o n the sca l e you a re a nd what your i ntentions a re someth ing wi l l then be a "bad vibe" or a "g ood vibe" for you . What som eth i ng is, is a bsol ute . What someth ing is to and for you is relative. Exa m pl e : For one person a fit of a n ger is a brea kth rough w h i l e for another person it's a relapse. Th e fact that it has a -- 6 --

different m ea n i n g a n d usefu lness for each individual does not m ea n that anger is not genera l l y a certa in d i sti nct level of energy as com pared to others . I n genera l , the lower ones emotional state o n the sca le, the less energy is ava i la ble and the more d istorted perception and the wea ker ones a b i l ity to feel , th i n k, act, create is. The h ig her ones emotional state on the sca le the more i n n e r reso u rces one has. The energy you rad iate is the rea l ity you get back. You experience the world not as it i s, but as you are. Th is sca le is designed to benefit i n m a ny ways. With it you will be able to determ i n e which state you a re in a n d which step of the latter to ta ke next. It w i l l eventu a l ly become easier for y o u t o support your fel l ow h u ma ns as wel l . You will a lso be a b le to q u ickly identify the energy-qual ity of va rious places, people, o bjects, foods, movies, m usic, books and even societies and cou ntries. Overa l l , l ife w i l l sta rt m a ki n g sense i n a deeper way.

Th e sca l e a l lows for spectral-perception rather tha n conventional d u a l perception . D u a l - percepti on says "X is good, Y is bad". Spectra l - Percepti on a l lows for more tha n two items, it a l l ows for dozens or even h u n d reds. Good/Bad then becomes dependent on context and on where one is on the overa l l sca l e . To u n dersta nd th is and a lso g rasp how neither the popu l a r p h i l osophies of Absol utism nor Relativism a re fu lly va l i d , i m a g i n e a Th ermom eter. It measures H ot and Co ld . But these a re not actua l ly "opposites" a n d neither a re there o n ly two factors . In fact, "cold" does not even exist - there a re only differe nt g rad ients of Hot. Very H ot a n d Less H ot. Th ere is o n ly one th ing and the lower on th e sca le, the colder it is. And whether one point of the Th ermometer is "hot" or "cold" does depend on which point of the sca le one is l ooki ng or m oving fro m . I n t h i s sense even a so-cal led " h i g h " level m i ght be very -- 7 --

detri menta l for someone, an overwhel m , as i n pouring a damn over a plant i n a n attem pt to "water" it. Th e fri dge w i l l be too cold for you but just right to store meat. The often wi l l be h ot to yo u but j ust right to coo k that meat. The Absol utist says : "Th is is good, that is bad, u n iversa lly. Period" Th e Relativist says : " N othing is good or bad . It's on ly you r opinion that this is bad". Th e rel ig ious or pol itica l Absol utist i s co rrect i n understa nd i n g that there i s that which i s closer to The Light and that which is fu rther away from The Light. His error comes i n only seeing two th i n gs without spectra l d i scern ment. The error that usually fol lows is that he judges people who a re elsewh ere on the sca le as "lower" a n d h i mself as "m ora l ly superi or". Th e academ ic, p h i losoph ica l or pol itica l Re lativist is correct in understa n d i n g that good/bad is a m atter of perspective . He is i ncorrect in t h i n king "everyth ing is the sa me" or that it does not matter whether one moves towa rd The Light or away from it. If a bused h is sta nce becomes Mora l Relativi sm, which then says : "One mans terrorist is a n other mans freedo m fig hte r". While this statement is correct, it fa i l s to point out that the terrorists energy-level on the sca le is lower tha n that of a person who ki lls in self-defence and much lower than a person who never kills. Before I go one word fu rther, ta ke a look at the short version of the sca le for you rself. I use a n a rb itra ry sca le from 1 - 1 000 for p ragmatic purposes, a lthough I cou ld h ave a lso used a spira l , concentri c circles, a 1 1 0 sca le o r a nyth ing else for that matter.

When the m i n d understa nds what is g o i ng on and can categorize events, its confusion ca l m s and attention that was previously scattered a nd preoccupied is freed fo r more i m porta nt matters . N ot only w i l l learn i ng the sca le a l low you to view h u ma n behaviour and a l l of l ife i n a new l i g ht but enable yo u to m a ke surprisingly accurate pred ictions about patterns in l ife . If you know -- 9 --

the energy-field of someth ing you al so know what ca n norm a l ly be expected from that energy-field . Then rather than being con d e m n i n g a nd i nd i g n a nt a bout va rious events you wi l l be able to view them with more com passion and even know how to best approach them . Energy tends to attract l i ke energy, just as b i rds of a feather flock together. Socia l sciences don't norm a l ly use meta physica l term i n ol ogy such as "attractor energy field s"; they w i l l use other words to descri be the sa me truths, such as "The Bro ken Window Principle", by wh ich a bad n e i g h bo u rhood i n town w i l l l i kely attract more o f t h e sa me events, actions a n d people . A b u i l d i n g with bro ken win dows is more l i kely to attract malcontents h a ng i ng a ro u nd there than a newly renovated b u i l d i n g . While socia l sciences try to use a l l ki nds of theories to explain why this is so, essentially it is the energy-field of the genera l a rea that would attract both a broken window a n d the acco m panying malcontent. To stereotype people comes from being awa re of these energy-field relations but being judgementa l a nd patron izing a bout the whole matter. The energy-field you radiate w i l l a l low you to "tune i n " to certa i n rea l ities. I t is not rea l l y that you "create" rea l ity just l i ke a Television set does not "create" the cha n nels it receives. It is more that you tune-i nto a freq uency by. . . a ) Knowing the q u a l ities a n d attri butes o f that freq uency and b) By focus of attention a n d intention towa rds that rea l ity All rea l ities a re already created i n Infi n ity. You don't "create" a ny of them and th i n ki n g you do is merely a mega l o m a n iac delusion of the Ego, sold to you i n the -- 10 --

"meta physica l " section of a bookstore . Instead you choose from the tri l l ions of options a l ready created what to tune i nto a n d what to retrieve attention from . States of m i nd , emotion a nd body a re therefore a gauge for where you sta nd, what co uld be i m p roved and how it cou l d be i m p roved . The sca le of energy is not widely kn own beca use h u m a n ities own level of energy has been too dense to perceive it. It is not poss i b le to see, hea r or feel someth i n g that is out of ra nge for you . This m a kes it appea r as if such i nformation as been kept secret. Ones own perceptual fi lters keep more "secret" than any i ntel l igence agency ever cou l d . In rea l ity noth i n g is u n knowa b l e . One reason h u m a n ity has kept the sca le of energy secret from itself is beca use there is some potentia l for m isa pplication . Th is specific type of sca le-th i n ki n g ori g i nated in the a n cient H i n d u belief­ system . Its m isuse has led to the creation of the rather rigid caste-system which m a kes it d ifficult for those "l ower" to progress upwa rds. In modern ti mes the sca le has a lso been m isused by a n u m ber of cu lts as a means of elitist seg regation a n d m a n i p u lation . For readers of this book it is meant to be used as a model of orientation . Readers with some spiritu a l sophistication w i l l know that "what you p u t o u t is what you get back", that you a re accountable for every of you r words a nd deeds and that m a n i p u lation of others automatica l ly i m p l ies that you w i l l be m a n i p u lated too . S i m p l y put, you use the sca l e not to wrong people o r prove them wrong or put them down, but to uplift, i n spire, em power. I even recom mend you do not ta l k about the sca le m uch a t a l l but merely read the energy-fields of the va rious p laces, beliefs, people, etc. Ta l ki n g about the sca le is s i m i l a r to ta l king about a m ovie while the m ovie is ru n n i n g . It d istracts you from the enj oyment of the movi e . From a m o re expa nded viewpoint, a h i g h er-point o n the sca le, the l i n ea r nature of t h e sca le is -- 11 --

mea n i ng less. The sca le is therefore a tool that is usefu l for people below that point on the sca le - wh ich includes m ost h u m a n s l iving on ea rth . From th at expa nded viewpoint level 0 a nd level 600 a re rig h t beside each other. From a n a i rplane Long Beach a n d Los Angeles a re rig ht beside each other, but on the gro u n d it m ay ta ke hours to wade yourself through the traffic to get there . Seen from a sate l l ite circl ing i n Orbit Long Beach a n d Los Angeles a re nearly identica l . For the d u a l istic m i nd sca les a utomatica lly mean "good and bad", desp ite my repeated requests not to use it this way. In order to relax this tendency just a l ittle bit you m i g ht perhaps wa nt to use words such as "appropriate" and " i n a p propriate" i n stead . For a politici a n level 700 ( B l i ss) is inappropriate, fo r parenting a child 400 ( Intellectua lism) is inappropri ate . If a sou l i nca rnates with the i ntention to experience suffering i n order to " ba l a nce out ka rma " o r a ny other such u n d erta ki n g , then tryi ng to get that sou l to " m ove above level 200" would i n fact be inappropriate . If e n l i g htenment is you r goal dabbl i ng below level 200 is d i scou raged. There is a fi ne difference between D iscern ment a nd Judgementa l - ism . Many who h ave been bra i n washed by rel igious a n d new-age thought learn " i t is not good t o j udge" a n d t h i s is often m i staken with b e i n g non-discern i n g . But Discern ment is an i m porta nt asset i n l ife . To label a ny point of the Thermometer as "bad" a n d actively resist it w i l l do noth i n g more th a n pull you i nto the energy­ fie ld you say you don't want. But to merely discern between "hot" and "cold" is no j ud gement. Appreciate that everyth ing has its rig htfu l place i n I nfi n ity. Before going on with read i n g , ta ke another look at the sca l e . You may pick up you r own i nsights before I share m i n e .

2 Appl ications of the Scale

Wel lbei ng is the sta rting poi nt, not the Goa l

Everyth i n g we do i n l ife we do to i m prove o u r state . Th is a pp l i es to every sentient bei n g . The essenti a l desi re to move i n the d i rection o f wel l - being a n d avoid fee l i n g bad is what motivates a l l action, all deSi re, a l l resista nce, a l l pla ns, a n d a l l worries. Why do you go to work? "To m a ke money". Why do you want to m a ke money? " For surviva l " wou l d be a com mon answer. In th is case going to work wou ld be d riven on the one hand by fear of non-surviva l a n d desire to survive . Sometimes we m a ke choices that "feel bad" or a re detri mental to o u r surviva l . Th is seems to contradict the idea of everyth i n g being m otivated by a d rive to feel better. But it i s no contradiction : When we m a ke choices that a re no good then o n ly beca use we believe the a l ternative would be even worse. So smoking cigarettes may be h a rmfu l to ones health, but there is the u nderlying bel ief that not smoking cigarettes feels worse th a n smoking them . Or we may rem a i n in a relationsh i p that is painfu l , beca u se the pain of leavi ng feels worse than stayi n g . We sometimes choose the " lesser evi l ", or what is perceived as such . Therefore even "bad" behavi o u rs a re m otivated by the desire to feel better. .. o r what we think w i l l m a ke us feel better. The shortcut to fu lfi l ment is to g rad u a l l y let go of "reason s" a n d "cond itions" that have to be met before being happy and aim directly for the feeling you would like to have . In my experi ence i m provi ng you r general state is a n a i m that is more i m porta nt than a l m ost a ny oth er a i m in life . By putting a genera l sense of we l l ­ being o n fi rst place i n you r i n ner priority-l ist you become in dependent of a l l the conditions that "have to" be met before being happy. And by beco m i n g i n dependent of a l l these things, people, objects . . . they -- 13 --

become easier to have . Wel l -being is not necessa ri ly the goal but the prereq uisite for reach i ng various goals, the basis from wh ich all oth er things flow more easi ly. If you th i n k you u ndersta nd what was just sa i d , th i n k aga i n . Merely rea d i n g som eth i n g a n d ag ree i ng with it is of l ittle use . A part of you will sti l l be wh ispering to you rself: " When 1 find a partner, 1 will feel better" " When 1 make more money, 1 will feel better" "When the weekend comes, 1 will feel better" "1 feel better after drinking coffee "

"After reading this book, 1 will feel better" " When 1 find God, 1 will feel better"

When waiti n g for outside ci rcu msta nces to change you , rather tha n recog nizing happi ness with i n , you a re a puppet of the world . If you com e to a n ATM machine and you r e m otional state changes from O K to ... worse ... that i n d icates that the ATM mach i nes contents a re controlling you, which is a fa r cry from you contro l l i ng it a n d its contents . Do you want to be contro l led by a machi ne? Do you have money, or does money have you?

H u m a n s have created B i l l ions of such dependencies . Need i n g a l l ki nds of things to ha ppen before you ca n be ha ppy is a certa i n way of not m oving u p the sca le. A shortcut to i m p rovi ng you r situation is to defi n e a general sense of well-being as a top priority (with the exception of E n l ig htenment a nd Divin ity itself which is the top priority and a lso beyond the d u a l ity of wel l­ being vs. non-wel l - be i ng ) . Practice feeling a l right today rather than p rojecting happi ness i nto some future that never rea l l y comes. Life is ta ki ng place today. Can you feel the Today-ness of Life?

With j ust a l ittle bit of awaren ess you ca n tend to yo u r wel l - being before ta king action o n someth i n g , before pla n n i ng , before m a ki n g a decisi on, before d ri n king that cup of coffee, before tu rn i ng on the i nternet to distract you rself. And if you feel a l right a nd ca l m beforehand you r actions a n d decisions w i l l b e m o re fru itfu l . Maki n g decisions in a state of emotional tu rmo i l is a reci pe fo r long -term sufferi n g . If you operate from a "I don't need coffee to feel better" the coffee you do d ri n k w i l l ta ste better. Th e taste of the coffee w i l l not come from you r menta l projection but from the coffee itself. You ca n derive sustenance, peace and joy from with i n in a matter of m i n utes by merely ta ki ng a short time-out once in awhi le, throughout the day. Th e d ictu m of the world-self (world-self is my term for what othe r a uthors ca l l "Ego") is " to get". Th at i s the only thing it is i nterested i n . To get. That is understa nda ble beca use it is dependent on en ergy for s u rviva l . The lower yo u r point on the sca le, the stronger the need to get is. In a state below Level 200 on the sca l e one is a l most consta ntly lacking someth i n g and need i ng someth ing or other i n o rder to feel at ease . So to get, to ta ke, to acq u i re, to ach ieve, to acco m p lish, to strateg ize on how-to-get is h u man ities m a i n preoccu pati o n . Merely "fee l i n g fi ne" i ndependent of what you get or do not get w i l l move you r overa l l energy up the sca l e . There is a l ot of power i n releasing need i ness. Effort and Effortlessness

Positive states do not req u i re effort, h a rd work, a long cl i m b, havi ng to "deserve" on a menta l and emotional leve l . They a re native to you . Only negative states req u i re ongoing menta l effort. I m a g i n e a floating cork. Push i ng it down under wate r ta kes effort. Let it go a n d will p o p back u p effortlessly. Having it float a b ove water is m o re a m atter of a l l owing it to than have -- 15 --

push i n g it to . But what a bout the " n o p a i n , no g a i n " dogma we are a l l brought up to bel ieve? Wel l , it does not a p ply to the menta l and emoti onal rea l m , it only a p p l ies to the physical world . So h a rd work, d isci p l i ne, b u i l d i n g ones body, investi ng time in ones stud ies, overcom i n g obstacles - physica l effort - has its merits a n d resu lts and ca n i n this way facil itate states of i n ner sati sfaction . So here ag a i n it is helpfu l to discern which doma i n we a re ta l king a bout. Inner ca l m and effortlessness cou p led with outer effort o r activity is a wonderfu l m i x . A part of being a success in l ife is not to mix levels. A path to fa i l u re is to be tense on the i nside and lax on the outside. Emoti o n a l ly, if you want to feel ca lmer a n d thereby strong, not more but less is req u i red . So rather tha n "doing someth i n g " " i n order to feel better", do less . Let go, release, relax. 80% of a l l p roducts sold i n the self­ hel p/new-age ma rket invo lve so me form of relaxing, re- packaged as some specia l " m eth od" for spi ritual advancement. If you knew how to relax the body and m i nd, you cou l d save you rself a l ot of ti me a n d money. I persona l ly know q u ite a n u m ber of costly menta l a n d spiritual cou rses that use a l l k i n d s o f teach ings, methods, tools where the net resu lt is merely "to be i n a ca l m i n ner state" o r "to have peace o f m i n d ".

Do you feel the difference? You 've j ust i m proved you r state on the sca le i n the here a nd now, not b y doing more, but by relaxing . You r wel l - being th us i m p roved, you r doing, you r prod uctivity i m p roves. Please ta ke note how re latively easy it was to i m prove you r state . Don't let a nyone sell you the bel ief that i m provi ng you r state req u i res a special prog ra m or l ots of money. Essenti a l l y, both effort and effortlessness a re i m po rta nt. To be wi l l i n g to both relax fu lly a n d work fu l ly. Those who have not mastered th is t h i n k about worki n g when they a re trying to relax a n d th i n k a bout relaxing when they a re trying to work. But rather than spen d i n g your life on a g u i l t tri p, a l l ow you rself to be com pletely lazy and at ease with it. In th is way you w i l l a lso a l low you rself to be com pletely p roductive and i n d ustrious and be at ease with that. Th e fol lowi ng exercise w i l l demonstrate how we have aversions towa rd both effort a n d effortlessness a n d w i l l help t o release some t h e energ ies stuck t o it.

As best you can be­ OK with that i mage, relax with that image. 2 . I m a g i ne relaxing, non-doing a n d effortlessness . A s best y o u ca n be-OK with that i mage, relax with that i mage. 3. And a g a i n i magine effort a n d as best you can release your aversion or resista nce towa rds it. Al low you rself to i m a g i n e effort a nd actually enj oy it. 4 .

Levels below 200 a re focussed on " Having". All of life i nvolves a nd surrounds what someone has a n d ca n get. Levels 200-450 revolve a ro u nd " Do i n g ". All th is " Doing" is what built civi l ization as we know it. On levels 450-600 the persons focus is on "Being". It is not i m portant what one owns ( h as), what one does (profession) but who one is ( perso na l ity, energy-field ) . Lower- level consciousness th i n ks that the best method to ach ieve som eth ing is Do-H ave-Be. "If I workout (do), then I have m uscles ( h ave) a nd then I'm respecta ble ( Be ) ". A m uch easier l ife begins with Being and then letting the actions natu ra l l y come from that Bei n g which w i l l eventually result in Havi n g (this is descri bed in deta i l i n my book " Pa ra l lel U n i verses of Self") The sca le reflects n atura l sequences of h u m a n emotion

There a re exceptions to this seq uence i n that some w i l l "skip" ce rta i n levels, o n l y tem po ra rily experi ence change, have backslides a n d other va riations outside of the l i near. From a higher-real ity- perspective (600+) one ca n go to heaven or hell with i n seconds. For most of us though, the respective states i n vicin ity of each othe r a re m uch easier to experience than those fu rther away. On a n energy-level of Pride ( 1 90) it i s m uch easier to sl i p down into Anger ( 1 60) than it would be to go into Depression ( 1 00) or ascend to Enthusiasm (380 ) . U ndersta n d i n g the sca le usually i ncreases you r tolerance of others a l ong with you r a b i l ity to help them , should help be des i red . So whether Anger i nd i cates betterm ent or not depends on which level a person was before. If the person i n question was depressed or fea rfu l and now experiences bouts of a nger or tem per ta ntru ms, th is is actua l ly an ind icator of his state i m proving rath er th a n decl i n i n g . If he was i n a state of genera l content and OK-ness, then a nger wou l d i n d icate a decl i n e i n his state . Conventional "wisd o m " holds that Anger (as a n exa m ple) is "not good", that th is fi re needs to be put out with cool water. What often happens in this case is that the "ca ri n g " spouse or therapist has the person suppress the anger. .. thus movi ng the person back down the sca le i nto fea r, sad ness, a pathy. . . until someday he rises back u p to anger and is pushed down yet aga i n . N ext ti m e you see someone who i s in a state of emoti onal u pheava l , do not necessa ri ly assu m e that they have moved "down" - u n less of cou rse they a re norma l l y the jovial energy-leve l .

Every l evel experiences a diffe rent world

Every energy- level experiences a d ifferent "felt truth ", perception of rea l ity, life results and intensities of experience. From which va ntage point you view l i fe, determ ines what you notice a nd do not noti ce. The fe lt "vi bration" you reside in effects yo u r th i n ki n g , doing, spea king a n d ultimately what surround ings a n d circu msta nces you fi nd you rself i n . Every level of energy a lso corresponds with everyth i n g else that matches it: Certa i n social org a n isms, col l oq u ia l isms, i ntentio ns, hob bies, l ocations, prob lems, d ra mas, n eeds, objects, form s of enterta i n ment, prod ucts, teach ings, infrastructures, buildi ngs, inte ntions, etc. Th is would be usefu l for the world in addressing people and nations according to where they sta nd rather than tryi ng to i ntrod uce systems that a re not a m atch to the respective rea l ity. Fo r exa m ple, ta l king a bout democracy (420) to a cou ntry that is experiencing hopelessness ( 50) is a d i plomatic fol l y. People on the bri n k of sta rvation do not want to ta l k about Democracy they want to ta l k a bout getting food q u ickly. My own experiences i n teaching a re a good exa m p l e . I have conducted more than a thousa nd sem i na rs a nd workshops with groups resid i ng on every pOi n t of the sca l e . The a b i l ity to work with very d ifferent types of people is l i n ked with the a b i l ity to sh ift ones own energy. I would not i ntroduce level 600 teach i ngs to a level 400 g ro u p or level 400 teach i ngs to a level 50 g roup. I n sh ifti ng my state different demea nour, cloth i ng , voca bulary is used . While I do teach the same th i ngs to every g roup, I teach it i n a rad ica l l y different m a n n e r.

Teaching a Level 70 G roup -- 20 --

I was asked to hold a workshop on success for a g roup of welfare reci pients who had been out of a job fo r yea rs . U po n enteri ng the room, I recog n ized this as a Level 70- 1 1 0 g ro u p, in apathy, depression, hopelessness, self-pity, fea r. And the th ings that usually accompany such a space were presen t : Ta ki ng a n a rray of d rugs "ag a i n st" depression, exha usted and em pty eyes, slow speech and a d ifficulty to focus, a tota l lack of perspective or l ife pu rpose . Some of the people wore cloth i n g th at was in a state of neg lect, as was the sem i n a r room itself which featured shabby fu rn iture, a bro ken coffee machine a n d paint cru m b l i ng off the wa lls. Having " been there" myself and havi ng moved beyond it gave me sufficient authority to assist them . In motivational cou rses work on "life goals" a n d "action steps" a re expected . I would not be doing that here though, n o matter what I had been booked for. The issue of "l ife goals" a n d "action steps" is for people residing on l evels 1 60 upwa rds. If I were to introd uce those types of tea chings to this g ro u p it would resu l t i n ... noth i ng m uch. They m ig ht be a b l e to state some goa l s but no action would fol l ow. Apathy lacks the energy to act. I i n stead worked with bottled u p e moti ons of sad ness and fea r, with practici ng self-expression, with physi cal touch ( h ugs), with pati ently l istening to thei r victi m - stories a n d so forth . Eventu a l ly I ca rried them up to level 1 80 (Antagonism, Pride, Com p l a i nt) by letti ng them b itch and moan a bout l ife, the i r former bosses, the ma rket situation, etc. I used m a ny "confession a l " type techniq u es and paths of e motional catha rsis and confrontation . The workshop was a success and a l l partiCipa nts experie nced rel ief. O n e partiCipant said: " I expected more of th is motivational cra p a bout goals a n d stuff. I'm g lad it tu rn ed out d ifferently. I feel g reat ! " These levels do reg a rd goals as " m otivational crap", bless the i r hearts . Teaching a Level 300 Group -- 21 --

Another "success a nd motivational workshop" addressed a level 2 7 5;.3 1 0 g roup with all their level 300 d reams, level 300 busi ness-attire , orderl i ness and conservatism . I was boo ked by a com pa ny to do a weekend-co u rse with i n the company roo ms. U n l i ke level 50 I would not be using any e moti o n a l ­ confrontation tech n i q ues . N either could I a l low myself to apply level 500 u pwards ta l k of Infi n ite Consciousness and mystica l Exa ltation . They wou l d have fi red m e on t h e spot. Th is w a s t h e right level to ta l k "goa ls a nd action steps" (whereas in the SODs I would ta l k a bout letting go of goals) . Havi ng the Cou rage ( 3 1 0 ) to p u rsue the i r goals was the "next step" for them. A successfu l workshop was the resu lt of worki ng on rej uvenati ng passion, rem oving dou bts and roadbl ocks to their goals a n d m a i nta i n ing focus after the Cou rse . "Good th i n g th is was n ot one them touchy-feely new-age cou rses" one participant sa id . "I l i ked how prag matiC and down-to-ea rth this was". Tea c h i ng a Level 450 gro u p Th is was a g roup o f perfo rm ers - actors a n d dancers that wou l d become bored had I addressed them wit Level 300 "goals processes". They l onged for the more Etheric. We m editated . We discussed U n conditi o n a l Love . We played g a m es a bout Sh ifti ng-Identities. And again the Cou rse was a success . "Awesom e ! I feel so much more a l i ve after this Workshop !" Above a certa i n level, feel ing energy is more i m porta nt than col l ecti ng data . Every level experi ences a d ifferent worl d . Th is a p p l i es to so m u ch more tha n tea ch i n g . Once you get o n ly a rou g h handle on how the sca le works, you r effectiveness w i l l skyrocket.

You r Tem pora ry and your Habitua l State

Each person has a u n ique gen era l experience of l ife which I ca l l " basic vi be" or "ha b itua l e m otion ", "chronic state" or " basic energy leve l " throughout the book. Th i s is the state yo u a re in m ost often . Some a re awa re of their basic leve l , some a re not. From th is m i d -point you have a range, mea n i n g a n average high a n d average low. So if you r basic level is 1 9 5 ( M onotonous Discontent) the hig hest y o u a re l i kely to experience u nder norm a l circumstances l i es a ro u n d 380 ( Reason, Relaxation, Success) and the lowest i s a round 8 0 (Sorrow, Self-Pity) . At 1 9 5 you are u n l i kely to experience a pathy (50) or B l iss ( 590 ) . You could go decades without ever being depressed a n d without ever touching sweet ecstasy. If your chro n ic level is 30 (Sha me, G u i lt) it w i l l prove difficult to experience a nyth ing a bove 220 (Satisfacti o n ) but be easier to ascend to nea rby 50 (Apathy) or 80 (Sorrow, Reg ret). If your h a b itua l level is 540 ( Love), it w i l l be a ra re occu rrence for yo u to ever s i n k below 275 (Co u rage, Action, Abi l ity) . The sca le g i ves you a g ood idea of what to rea l isti ca l ly expect a n d what i s out of ra nge at cu rrent. Grasping for what is out of ra nge is usua lly more h u rtfu l th a n ta king t h e sta i rs step by step. That would b e si m i la r to trying to j u m p on a tra i n that is movi ng too fast. Not en l ig hten ment would be th e resu lt, but bruises. You r basic energy level is com posed of past experiences (th oughts a nd fee lings "frozen in ti me" a n d stored in your body a n d/or sou l ) , yo u r own bel iefs, core-beliefs and attitudes, you r current focus of attention, yo u r open and h idden intentions a n d w h a t y o u genera l ly say a n d do m ost o f t h e ti m e . The people you spend ti me with, your environ ment, what you eat a nd d ri n k a nd how you ca re fo r yo u r body also play a role in you r basic en ergy a l beit a smal ler one. You r reg u la r envi ron ment is more a n indicator of you r state th a n the ca use of it. -- 23 --

You r temporary state does n ot exist fo r more tha n min utes, hours or days i n ti m e . You m ig ht go on vacation and feel a tem pora ry rel i ef. But some of yo u r low feel i ngs accompany you t o that fo reign co untry. In fact, if you relax properly there, your rea l state wi l l emerge a n d i t m ay not be what you hoped i t is. O r you will rea l ize that when a l l d istractions a re gone you a re in better shape than you th ought you were . Beca use we expose o u rselves to a rtificia l u p pers and downers it is not a l ways clear what our state rea l ly is. People ta ke d rugs i n order to gain rel ief from the heaviness of l ower states . But these very tem pora ry expe riences do not resu lt i n any u pward m ovement on the sca le. More l i kely d rug consumption l owers ones overa l l state because of the shock of d i screpancy between the h i g h a n d the actua l state . Speed ing u p from level 5 0 to level 570 b y using d rugs such as "ecstasy" is no path to enlig htenment, q u ite the contra ry. A tem pora ry h i g h may also be in itiated when someth i ng new comes up. But if you have not shifted your ha b itua l v i b ration, the new wi l l fa de q u ickly. Ta ke the new car for exa m pl e : In the first days you a re upl ifted by havi ng it. After a few weeks its j ust a nother car. If you want to know where you rea lly a re on the sca le simply look at how yo u feel most of the time. Since you a re read i n g th is book I ca n say with a fa i r deg ree of certa i nty that you a re somewh ere between 1 3 5 a n d 570 beca use neither lower n o r h i g her states would be interested in this book or even notice it. That's right, they would not perceive the existence of the book even if it were in front of the i r nose. I mea n that l itera lly. If you become silent for awhile and do noth ing to d istract yo u rse lf, if you s i m ply " h a n g a ro u n d " l i ke you m ig ht do on a vacation or when trave l l i n g by plane or tra i n , you r basic v i b rati on usua l ly emerges more clea rly. It is what's left when d i stracti ons a re removed . -- 24 --

Socia l Mask Identities

Each of us wea rs "socia l mask Identities" to some extent. Th is is a state we pretend to have for social occasions or to a p pear "a greea ble" to a g roup of people. If m ostly means feig n i n g a hig her state, i n some cases loweri ng ones state i n order to adapt. We use roles a n d masks to look good i n front of others, to get approva l and attention and to avoid d isapprova l . If you a re chronica l l y stuck at 80 (grief), you would proba b ly not express that when going to a pa rty. You 'd put on a 350 (at ease) mask for that time. If that's too difficult to m a i nta i n , you m i g ht at least try 200 ( boredj neutra l ) . It a lso wo rks the other way : When I was a tee nager I would p retend to be "d own a nd out" so that I cou ld h a ng-out with a g roup of schoolya rd ruffi a ns who were run n i ng the show, who were " i n charge of th ing s". I nwardly glea m i n g I d a re not show my joy to the g ro u p . "Yea h , l ife sucks" I l ied . "That teacher sucks". "Th e p ri n cipal sucks". " Everyth ing sucks". Were I to express otherwise they'd beg i n fee l i n g a l ienated an kick me out of their clique. Assu m i n g mask energies now a n d then is an a ct of cou rtesy and entirely a l rig ht. But doing it too often is a path to fa i l u re i n l ife . It req u i res effort to u p keep states one does not rea l l y have . Once the energy is exhausted , body a i l ments a rise or the act no longer looks convi ncing a n d e m ba rrasses those a ro u n d us. The d ifference between a fa ke or tem pora ry high vibe and a true basic h i g h energy field is the conviction a nd natura l ness with which it is rad i ated . Therefore, admitting to you r low state is more en ergetic a n d u psca le t h a n trying t o cover- it u p with someth i n g else. You can save an enormous a mo u nt of time a n d energy (wh ich is then freed up for other th ings) by releasi ng the need for approval fro m others . The tendency to be needy of oth ers approva l, attention, confi rmation, va l idation com es from a ti me i n which the child -- 25 --

thoug ht it was a matter of surviva l . So it did that which seemed to ca use parents approva l and avoided that wh ich seemed to ca use parents d isa pprova l .

Both behaviours a re n o longer needed i n a d u lt life a n d yet many sti l l use them as if they were helpless ch i l d re n . Releasing the Need for Approva l

A helpfu l exerci se in th is reg a rd is to l ist everyth i n g you have d o n e recently o r on t h e last weeks a n d months or throug hout a l ifeti me i n order t o g a i n approva l or avoid d isa pprova l from others - spouses, ch i l d ren, pa rents, su periors, colleagues, th e publ ic, etc. You wi l l notice that while it is a l ri g ht to get appla use and a ppreci ation, it is the need for it that is detri menta l . I n fact the need for it will create an en ergy field i n which you h a rd ly ever receive real approva l . a ) M enta l ly Focus o n a n item from the l ist. Welcome whatever thoug hts, sensations, feel ings, memories "Tlight be associated with that. :J) Notice how the wanting approva l creates a lack. :) Ask yourself: Fo r n ow, could I let go of wa nti ng approva l for th is? d) And release you r focus from the wanting . And then ielease you r focus from the whole item . Simply repeat this process for each item on you r l ist. It will free up severa l layers of stu ckness, even some you may not be aware of. By merely doing this exercise you a lso com m it the idea to memory a n d will no longer be that strongly of a pa wn in other people 's games.

Tem po rari ly Stuck vs. C h ro nica l ly Stuck

A person goes through each and every state severa l times with i n a lifetime, sometimes even through severa l a Day. That is the natu re of the game the sou l i s here to p lay. From the Souls perspective, the lower states a re not u ndesi ra b l e but simply training grounds to experience certa in viewpoi nts-of-Infi n ity, develop a com passion for them a n d move beyond . The "pro bl e ms" a re not the states themselves. Low states a re often even a very appropriate response to certa i n events. Seeing a c h i l d bei ng shot on the 8 o'clock News and getti ng a n g ry or depressed over it is a very natural and appropriate response . The hea ler who wou l d aim to "help" you "get rid of" that response is the one who is wrong . Yo u wou l d not want to be overj oyed at the m u rder of a c h i l d , wou l d you? The "problem" is not the state but being chron ica l ly stuck in one state o ver a longer period of time. Spen d i n g th ree days i n a certa i n state sta rts accu m u lati ng certa i n rea l ities i nto your life which match that state .

Merely g iving yourself perm ission to feel what you a re feeling ma kes it easier to release. I n some case one doesn 't even consciously have to "let go" beca use its so d ifficult to susta i n . Emoti o n a l a n d menta l phenomena a re noth i ng but energy flowing through consciousness. Th ey o n ly accu m u late and sta rt "spi n n i n g " a n d feel ing "bad" when we resist o r hold on to them . Fu l ly enjoying that a n ger may turn it i nto l a u ghter or the rea l ization that strong a nger is a n ind icator of a strong Desire, thus sh ifting atte ntion to the m ore positive ("Desire" here is not used i n the sense of the level 1 25 cravi ng, but in the sense of the 275 goa l ­ orientati on) . That Eagerness to Act ( 27 5 ) for the Positive may then turn into genuine Interest i n Ach ievement ( 3 50) a n d Enth usiasm ( 3 80 ) . Th e reason wi l l i ngly experi encing an emotion frees you from it is beca use it is merely the resi sta nce ca using you to focus on it. La bel ling it as "bad" binds a n d feeds it. Everything " negative" actu a l ly ca rri es with it the message that either some intenti on/belief you hold or some action you plan to ca rry out or som e en ergy-field you a re nea r is not good for you . By suppressing the feel i n g you do not "get the message" and conti n u e with the detri m enta l behaviour. I n th is way a h u m a n descends to increasingly l ower levels u nti l he fi n a l l y gets the message. To acknowledge what-is b l u ntly ca n free you fro m it insta ntly. For a moment, welcome a nd fu l l y accept whatever you are fee l i ng right now. Si m ply ta ke a moment to notice what you a re feel i n g . Breathe it i n . Acknowledge it as­ it-is. Rel ease any sort of aversion or resista nce towards it, o r if it's a pleasant state, release a ny soft of attach ment a n d holding on to it. Be-with-what- is.

A good exa m ple of how energy works ca n be seen in Ti red ness. Remembe r the last time you felt exh a usted a n d d i d not want to a l low you rself to . In rare cases you may have been able to focus on a h i g her state or "sn a p out of it". But in m ost cases, fig hti ng ti red ness creates more ti red ness . One gets more heavy. M aybe headache a rises ( headache often bei ng the result of two confl i cting i ntentions) . Soon you a re feeling rea lly down . What wou ld have h a ppened had you welcomed the ti red ness, fu l ly a l lowed it to run its course? Had you sim ply q u it what you were doing, retreated to the sofa and l ied down for a few m i n utes? Wel l , either you 'd have fa l len asleep and later awa kened well­ rested and refreshed or it wou l d have " m i raculously" va n ished with i n m i n utes and not retu rned for the rem a inder of the day. When you n otice you cant beat the en ergy then fol low yo u r feel i ngs, g ive i nto them . So when you a re ti red it means rest for a moment. When you a re wide awa ke at means be active . If you s i m ply a l low you rself to feel what you a re fee l i n g when you a re fee l i ng it a n d to not feel what you a re not fee l i ng when you a re not fee l i n g it, l i fe becomes s i m ple. You 're tired, so you l ie down . If you a re sad you cry. If you a re fea rfu l be fearfu l . That is how s i m ple it a l l is. As you let an energy ru n its cou rse it wont take more than a few m i n utes u ntil you r m i n d asks "OK, n o w what?" - mea n i n g the p a i n h a s neutra l ized . Allowing a sensation to flow th rough you r body without resista nce - without wanti ng to get rid of it, solve it, h a n d l e it, fig u re it out, u ndersta nd it, ana lyze it, hold on to it, a l lows it to flow - and thereby m ove on and out of yo u r energy-fiel d . If you remember o n ly one th i ng from th is book, let it be th i s : Resisting something does not solve it, it feeds it. Water naturally reaches its goal because it resists nothing.

Practicing the next hig her state

The genera l pu rpose of the sca le is to show you which level is the next and to i l l u strate how it is not advisa ble to a i m m u ch h i g her than wh ere you currently a re . Do not try getti ng on a ca rousel ride that i s spin n i ng too fast. Th e results wou l d disappo i nt, even i njure . To a i m much h igher than ones current stage is one of the m a i n ca uses of stu ck- ness i n l ife . Livi ng natu ra l ly, ta ki ng each day as it com es, getti ng just a l ittle b it better each d ay is mostly more effective than ta king that "quantum leap". M a rketi ng schemes of the "spiritu a l " scene will m a ke it look as if m a ki n g that " h u g e step", t h e "fi n a l breakth ro u g h " a n d that "tota l tra nsformation" is someth i n g attractive or even feasi ble. For a nyone vi brati n g under 600 it is not a n d "get e n l i g hten m ent q u ick" - schemes a re for the g u l l i b l e crowds on ly. The o n ly ti me "Aim for the sta rs a n d you'll rea ch the moo n " is appl ica ble is i n situations of strong i n ner bel ief, when yo u feel i nvinci ble and rea dy to go. Such states a re norm a l ly not expe rienced below 350, so make sure you a re i n a good state when going for the "big poi nts" i n l ife. If you feel the strength then you r i ntention is sure to come true, whether its healing a n a i l ment or havi ng a professional b rea kth roug h . But i n any " n orm a l " context (0-600 a n d especia l ly below 350) always a i m one o r two steps h ig her on ly. Th at would be a j u m p from 1 20 (fear) too 1 60 ( a n ger) for exa m p l e . That would i m med iately red i rect you r energy from being a persecuted poor l ittle victim to being the attacker that wont ta ke a ny nonsense. That step works and it works wel l . Lets try this out: Th i n k of someth ing you d read or fea r (If you cant fi nd a nyth i n g , then disreg a rd th is. You don't have to descend just so you ca n do the exercise) . Welcome that fee l i n g fu lly. Al low it. Perh a ps ask you rself: -- 32 --

What thought or action ca uses that feel ing? And what thought or acti on wou l d I l i ke to ta ke i n stead? Ponder. Then rel ease yo u r focus from those thoug hts . An d focus on a nger. Either th i n k of someth i ng that m a kes you rea l ly a n g ry or p u rposefu lly generate anger at the th ing that was causing fea r. Beat the d ru m of it by thinking a bout it or ta l ki ng a bout it. "Those d u m b idiots, I a m s o d a m n sick a n d tired o f those wan na - be d u mbasses". Get into the a nger-state way beyond the mere words on th is page. Do you feel how that has sign ificantly more energy tha n fea r? How there is more of a n a b i l ity actua l ly act? Do you feel how a nger has sign ifica ntly more energy than fear? M o re a b i l ity to act? At 2 1 0 (Sta b i l i ty, Functi onality) you ca n ascend by cu ltivati ng 275 (Courage) or 350 ( Kindness) . So rather than merely "getti ng by" you 'd spa rk a passion, try out someth ing new or expa nd you r attention to concerns beyond th ose of only yourself. If you were a round 400 ( Knowledge) the next l ife ch a l l enge would be 475 (Creativity) or 510 ( Love ) . When a i m i n g to u pl ift others neither ta ke i n too h i g h of a state nor the sa m e . I m a g i n e someone chatti ng away in self-pity a n d the person's g i rlfriend ch i m i n g in with some more pity. By m atch i n g energy the g i rlfriend is trying to express com passion but neither of th em w i l l move upwa rds. Com passion ( 3 5 0 ) is someth i ng enti rely diffe rent tha n Pity (90 ) . So in helping someone cl i m b the sta irs you sta nd neither on the sa me step nor th ree steps h igher. This does not mean you have to l ower you rself i n order to com m u n i cate. Instead , te m pora rily "fa ke" or "project" a l ower state without lowering you rself overa l l . Someone who is i n 5 0 (a pathy) w i l l not natura l ly respond t o yo u r attem pt to enthuse ( 3 00) . And if h e does respond he wont do it -- 33 --

" But isn't b l a m i n g oth ers for ones rea l ity a bad th i n g ? Isn't bei n g j udgementa l of others bad?" Not if you a re feeling below 1 7 0 . How l o n g does i t ta ke to move u p the sca le? That depends on whether a state i s a tem porary or habitu a l . With tem po ra ry levels severa l steps ca n be taken with i n mere m i n utes, hours or days. With a chro n ic level it ca n take weeks, months a nd even years to move upwa rds just 2 0 - 1 0 0 pOi nts .

So its good to know that if spiritu a l tra i n i ng takes you u p 200 points tem pora rily that w i l l be at least 20 pOi nts on you r chro n i c leve l .

One cou l d say that the ch a l lenge of lower levels is to master self, the challenge of m i d -states is to m aster self-a nd others, the cha l lenge of h i g h states is to master self, others a nd the world, a n d the cha l lenge of very h i g h states is to go beyond self, others a nd the worl d to merge with Infi n ity.

Worki ng with the Levels of Energy

ne hi gher you r basic leve l , the q u icker yo u move out :>f temporary lows . Th e lower you r basic vi be, the ilore work and repetition you need to ascend . Its as simple as that. The more actual power you h ave, the ess force is req u i re d .

The rest of you r nasic leve l of formed i n you r child hood . Apa rt from that you have a "days form ". You a lso have person a l ity-clusters or "parts-of-me" which reside on different levels. I will share methods that a i m at freeing those frozen parts with i n you . I have never met a person that has not at least a l ittl e bit of h i m or herself on each level of the sca l e . One m i g h t be i n apathy concern ing the state of the world, i n anger ove r the neigh bou rs and i n enth usiasm reg a rd i n g the job . Th is would pa i n out at a n average of 220.

Co nsciousness u nfolds a l l by itself, natu ra l ly, without -- 42 --

the need fo r intervention by a nyone. Teachers and methods a re su perfl u ous. Devotion to the most high is the only thing of i m porta nce. Between 499 a n d 200 some type of processi ng in the a reas of spiritu a l ity, meditation, menta l tra i n i ng , co nscious l iving a re helpfu l .

Below 50 the pol ice w i l l be of assista nce. An interesting process for learn i ng a bout the sca le is to go th roug h each of the states of consciousness in Med itation . . . from the very bottom to the very top . Another way to do th is wou ld be to m odel or act- l i ke each of the levels. Here you 'd be m i m icking each state from bottom to top with you r ta l k, body postu re, gestures, th oughts, fee l i ngs. Once you have coaxed yourself i nto rea l ly fee l i n g a nd being a state you would prog ress to the next one. Th is process ca n free severa l layers of l i m itation and offset a n experience of i ntel lectual a n d spiritua l re newa l ( n ote : In th is specific exercise, states 0 - 1 7 0 a re to be mocked , not physica l l y ca rried-out-in -real ity) .

Some things a re exactly as they seem a n d some th ings a re not at a l l as they seem . Th rough familiarity with the en ergy- levels you w i l l be a ble to tel l i n which energy-range things a re . You will see a certa in a rea on TV news and know whether the trou bled a rea is 160ish or SO-ish . You wi l l see a book i n the boo kstore and often spontaneously sense whether it is a book that is hel pfu l for yo u or not ( a nd sometimes a 300-ish book may be more helpfu l for a cu rrent l ife phase tha n a 600-level book) . You w i l l receive a business proposa l and feel whether the person extend i ng the offer is a person of i nteg rity (above 200) or not. -- 43 --

ne only way to distort ones i m mediate sensing of the :ruth is by indoctri n ation . Th rough various "Tlanipu lation tech n iq ues h u m a ns a re brainwashed to je l i eve that someth i n g is different from what they feel t is. And if you buy into it, you rea l ly do sta rt fee l i ng a :h ing differently th a n it actu a l l y is. Anyth ing ca n be :Jresented to a ppea r different tha n it is. The most ntense methods of indoctri nation a re to Demonize and : 0 Idealize . To demon ize means to m a ke someth i ng ook m uch worse th a n it is a n d to idea l ize or g lamorize "'1ea ns to m a ke someth i n g look m uch better than it is. l. good exa m p l e of Demonization is U . S . pol ities, ",here " l i bera ls" and "conservatives" try to pa i nt each Jther in the worst l ig ht possi b l e . Al l Republ icans a re :hen portrayed as b i b l e-th u m ping warmongers and ntolera nt n ut jobs, w h i l e Democrats a re then :>ertrayed as Com m u n i st pa nsies and i m mora l :ri m i n a ls . Of course neither of th ose portraya l s has anyth ing to do with rea l ity. I n actua l ly seeing "li bera ls" and "conservatives" u p close one notices they just -orm a l people l i ke you and me. t/here ever you see extreme polarization you ca n tel l :hat you a re not dea l ing with rea l ity but with :Jrojection (of either Demonization or Ideal ization ) . If you want to check whether you have been indoctri n ated , notice how you react to d i sa g reement with you r wo rldviews. The stronger you r emotiona l reaction to d i sagreement, the more l i kely it i s that your views a re the result of indoctri nation rather tha n education.

So if, while read i ng this book, you a re outraged or shocked by someth i n g I say or go i nto anger, h u rt or ridicule mode, it is not my inform ation that is fa lse, it is you rs . If however your disagreement i s from a "hig her place", mea n ing you feel neutra l , h u morous or accepti ng, then it is probably me who is i n error. I just gave you a method to tel l truth from fa lsehood, -- 44 --

by the way. And I a lso adm itted that I may be i n error on va rious th i ngs. Any a uthor who cl a i m s he is without error is a l i a r, fra n kly. The h u m a n doma i n has error b u i lt into it. To know that the h u m a n m i nd is prone to d i stortion a n d m ispe rception a l lows for more compassion - towa rd you r fel low h u m a n beings, towa rd me the author and especi a l ly towa rd you rself. H owever, the u pside of a l l this is that the h ig her you go in consciousness, the more clea rly you ca n see. Domi nated by the lower emotions such as fea r, a nger, craving the a b i l ity to detect truth is a l m ost im possible beca use you a re operating from extreme bias.

Once you a re a ble to view from a fa i rly l a bel-less a n d projection-less space you will be a ble to see things as they a re rather than as they seem .

Once you lea rn how to snap out of them , you wi l l experience them with more Humor, the most usefu l virtues. It is only the supposed seriousness atta ched th at m a kes it appea r as if lower levels have any power. Th is power is an i l l usion that could be overcome fa i rly qu ickly. 20 Sha me, Denial, Debasement, Psychosis

I refused on account o f t h e fact that I a m not q u a l ified to handle levels 0-30. But I was able to conta ct a social worker that cou ld help h i m . In h i s email t o me he sta rted o u t by descri b i n g that ever since he had ta ken a "bad meth tri p" he was seei ng a l l kinds o f stra nge g ri m a ces, first ap pea ri ng i n h i s d reams, then a ppea ri ng i n wa ki ng l ife . "I w a s wa l ki n g down t h e street a n d I had t h i s h a l l u ci nation that a n evi l b e i n g w a s tearing u p o n t h e sky a n d sta ri ng down at me. H e wa nts to ki l l me." His ema i l went on to say that he is the rei nca rnati on of Jesus and that he "rea l ly is not crazy". H e reported that is teeth were fa l l i n g o ut thoug h . He referred to hi mself as being "a rea l meth head". Some D rugs d o m a ke the body/ m i n d more suscepti ble to lower-astra l i nfl uence . My u ndersta n d i n g that t h i s is t h e ta l k o f a level 0 - 3 0 person was confi rmed fu rther down when he reported that he had slit h is wrists in a suicide attem pt. I had rea d enough and had the acq u a i nta nce of m i ne (the soci a l worker) give h i m a phone ca l l . From there he went on to get thera py. The reason people chronica l l y stuck below 50 a re prone to cri me is beca u se they a re beyond ca ri ng ( 5 0 is a pathy) a n d derive energy from acts that a re harmfu l to l ife . At a ny other point on the sca l e, harmfu l acts weaken yo u . Below 50 harmfu l acts g i ve the a ppeara nce of "strength e n i n g " you . It l ater turned out that th is person had i ndeed "g iven up in l ife" two yea rs ago when he lost his job and g i rlfriend . He then found "relief" in h a rd d rugs. To acq u i re Speed, H eroi n , Crack and whatnot he eventu a l ly descended i nto cri m e . For these cri mes he felt Shame - h i s descent to en ergy-rea l m 3 0 .

Those who la bel these states "spiritu a l ly 3dva nced" a re incorrect. In my own term i n ology these states a re the access of "Iower-astra l - re a l ms". Helping the 30 is problematic beca u se those that a re close enough to access the person ( a pathy, g rief, fea r, lust) don't have the energy or interest to help. Th e 3 0 field is best left t o professiona l s . Norm a l l y the body dies from neglect, infection a n d disease. In the ra re case death does not h a ppen, there is the possi bil ity of desce n d i ng to the m i n us-levels wh i le sti l l occupying a body. What h a p pens when one descends that low ca n be seen i n cou ntless horror-fi l m s . S uch movies a re, unfortunately, not entirely fictitious, they a re memories of m i n us- reg ions. On the m i n us-sca l e (which w i l l n ot b e m u ch discussed in t h i s book and I also recom mend you not to investigate ) , the more evi l one is, the m o re energy is derived . It is a reversa l of the reg u l a r sca le. H owever, cu rrently there is not a sing le em bod i ed person in m i n u s living on pla net earth . Li kewise there is cu rrently not a single em bod ied person a bove level 900 l iving on earth at this time. The reason for th is is that mass­ consci ousness cu rrently averages level 200 wh ich is too high for any m i n us- level to survive and too low for any 900+ being to comforta bly want to stay. Whenever below-O a n d a bove SOO -states a re experienced th is therefore ofte n ha ppens w h i l e the body/ m i n is sleeping a n d consciousness travels a ro u nd in oth er D i mensions. . . .

There is the p a ra noia that anyone attem pti ng to help is "evi l ". There is an a rray of l iterature cla i m i n g that the Light one sees at Near­ Death- Experiences is a "conspiracy" a nd that one shou ld "stay away from it". Th is is a fa lseh ood based u pon super- para n oid- leve l - 30-th i n ki n g .

Her ta l k was ki n d of "stra nge", she would not look stra i g ht at me, her eyes were bleak a n d yel low- ish, a n d she gave off a stench that often acco m pa n ies th ose who's so ul a re in the process of leaving the body to the lower-astra l . After she went home from one visit, I told my mother "I don't th i n k she is doing wel l ." And s u re enough she died a few days later.

Crime equals a ta ki ng -away-fro m - l ife, a taking -away from soci ety.

Lets take mastu rbation as a n exa m p l e . Being asha med to masturbate actually ca uses an excess of mastu rbation beca use - everything that is s u ppressed , tends to stick.

Believe it or not, some peoples heads will go red if you even mention the topiC. That's how m uch e m otiona l cha rge is stu ck on it.

Although the Portuguese had Doted, ra ped , explo ited a n d pil laged thei r cou ntry for 1undreds of yea rs, the i n digenous had not ascended to :he level of Revenge ( 1 60) . That's why, if you see angry, rioting or looti ng crowds i n Afri ca , u ndersta nd that you a re, i n most cases, seeing a n a wakening, not a downfa l l . U nfortun ately, when riots beg i n , m i l ita ry '=orces usu a l l y a rrive to shoot the populace right back O nto subm ission and a pathy. That is the tragedy of lower states : They a re in a vicious cycle from which one ra rely emerges without proper schooling on how energy works. One pa rt of prosperity i nvolves giving gen erously. But the other side of the coi n (and you need both sides in order to own the coi n ) involves being w i l l i n g to receive a nd take.

As rid i cu lous as many readers think it is to be asha med of going to a bank, th is one sma l l exa m p l e h o l d s a key for a l l t h e poor a n d needy and for a l l third ­ world- nations. The a pathy i n Africa is conn ected to dehyd ration, lack of water and the sun beati ng down relentlessly. The cli mate is somewhat i nappropriate for the h u m a n -body. Groups of sou ls who i nca rnate as Afri ca ns know this a nd choose to do so to go th rough a n u m ber of ka rm i c lesson s . The preva lent energy- l evel of Africa was attractive to Col o n i a l ists ( l evel 1 70) who cou l d o n ly gain more en ergy by push ing others down, enslaving them . Wa r, use of weapons a n d genocide a re a level 1 60 "awa ke n i ng " wh ich ra pid ly move a n entire nation out of apathy. Of course there a re more co nstructive ways to express ra ge and a nger tha n ki l l ing people, methods that have yet to be learned. And the way wars a re waged in Africa they do noth i ng to a l low the nations to ascend, but provide o n ly that "te m pora ry rush". If you 're i n deep, chronic apathy and have been for decades, h o l d i ng a g u n is the hig hest of rushes. Before that you were nobody, suddenly yo u a re somebody. To intensify you r u n dersta n d i n g of its menta lity, here's a level -20 joke : What's better tha n ten babies i n one bucket? Answer: One baby in ten buckets .

If you had no specific i n ner response to the jokes tol d , you a re cu rrently (tod ay) resid i n g somewhere in the m id- upper range. The "sense of h u m our" on th i s energy-gradient ofte n involves slaug hter, m u rder, violent i magery a nd h u m i l iation . If you a re i nterested i n seeing a level 30S O movie, watch "Pulp Fiction" by Quentin Ta ra nti no, which vibrates at just that level . The movie is a l l about humi liating people, merci less a n d i nsa ne violence beyond a ny ca re . It a lso m a kes m u rder look l i ke a n attractive and fu n th ing t o do. The fact that P u l p Fiction was o n e o f t h e most pop u l a r m ovies of a l l time, says a l ot a bout the cu rrent state of mass­ consciousness. Don't get me wrong, I am not mora l istic towa rds such rea l ities. Th is m ovie has its place a n d in depicti ng th is consciousness-gradient accurately it is a bri l l ia nt work of a rt.

But neither a m I naively buying into the rea l ity it sel l s but rem a i n d iscern ing enough to know what too m uch of this type of enterta i n ment w i l l do to my overa l l energy-field . A few yea rs ago, parents asked me to help the m with their teenager whose school g rades had d ropped a nd who was behaving erratica lly. At fi rst I told them Id prefer not to work with their son but with the them, that they should leave their chi ld a lone and let h i m develop on h i s own accord . I h a d misperceived the situation however, beca use to " l eave the kid a l one" is the right method if that kid is i n the 1 00s, but not the appropri ate method for a kid d rown ing i n level-3D energy. After lea rn i ng that he pl ayed video-ga mes most of the time, I asked h i m to show me "the most twisted game" he has, acti ng as if I'm just as enth usiastic as he was a bout it.

At that moment I was aware that I a m dea li ng with below- 1 0 0 rea l ms and no coe rcion or ed ucation wo u ld change h is attitude. Below- 1 00s a re good at justification . "Its only a video-g a m e . Its not l i ke I wa n n a do that for rea l . And someti mes it just feels good to shoot a nigger". And : " Noth i n g is good or bad . If I use it to vent so that I don't do it i n rea l l ife, then its someth i n g good ! ". The a b use of relativity or m ista king d i scern ment with judgement is a h a l l ma rk of lower consciousness . My approach was not to address h i m d i rectly, but i nstead to address his parents . I asked th em to i m pl ement m usic, paintings, behaviour and places of h igher energy. I tol d them that if they would spread higher-vi bes in their household, the i r son wou ld eventua l ly loose i nterest in low-level -activities. It is true that violent movies and ga mes ca n be used to "vent" and expe rience a tem pora ry release . However, conti n ued use o f such med ia leads t o the exa ct opposite . Th is is beca use what you focus on long enough , you become. Sure enoug h , without havi n g to say a word to the i r son, without condem n i n g or punishing h is behaviour, they succeeded i n ra ising the households energy-field, by wh ich the son eventu a l ly lost i nterest i n the games a n d rose to a sta ble 1 60 (an ger) - a state from wh ich fu rther meas u res to rise to 1 9 0 (pride) cou ld be taken .

SO Apathy, Hopelessness, Depression,

Desperation

In th is state g rey a n d bleak I have no interests, no d rive, no i m p u lse, no reacti on, no responsi b i l ity, no hope, no perspective, no goa ls, no love, no feel ings. Key-word s : Jaded . Blu nt. Indifferent. Mea n i ng l ess. I nert. Leth arg i c . Heavy. No d rive to a ct. Th is person has actually a l ready g iven u p . If in desperation she was wa i l ing a n d crying a n d shouti ng a ro u n d , she i s passed that n ow . . . she is below that now. She hard ly ta l ks and h a rd l y l istens. Her cloth i ng , h e r car, h e r a p a rtment and her belong i ngs a re in a state of neglect. The type of i n d ifference d isplayed here is a negative i n d ifference, as opposed to the positive i ndiffere nce of equ a n i m ity seen on h ig her levels. Typica l p h rases you will hear frequently are "I ca n 't" "It's just not possi ble" "I don't ca re", "I don't g ive a da m n " "Who cares? " "Noth i n g matters" "It doesn't matter" "Its dead" "Dea d " is used in contexts such as "the economy is dead ", "stop beati ng a dead horse", "my car d ied", "I m i ssed the dea d l i ne", "that person is dead i n my eyes". There wi l l be m a ny referra ls to th ings be i n g over, hopeless, done, u n redeem a b l e . Someti mes t h e chro n i c 50 energy tries to pass off h is apathy as "co ntentment" or "eq ua n i m ity". Some a ctu a l l y fa l l for this cha rade. But e q u a n i m ity is a peacefu l and positive state, wh ile the disi nterest of the a pathetic person is negative a n d i nvolvi ng words such as "going down h i l l " and "down the d ra i n " and " it's a l l fa l l i ng to pieces" a n d whatnot. Lea rn ing t h e levels of consciousness you w i l l soon notice the d ifference . -- 67 --

I l i ke to te l l the story of a n "ascended master" I witnessed who was on the a pathy-plhane. H i s apathetic students thought he was enlightened, but va rious cl ues gave h i m away. When sitting a ro u nd in "peace a nd s i l ence", that peace was heavy, not meditative . The eyes were d u l l not sh i n i n g . Cockroaches were crawl i n g a round the wa l l s o f h i s "ash ra m ". Where a n e n l ig htened master m i ght spea k of Oneness i n a soft, vibra nt VOice, referri ng to the un ity of the diversity of a l l Bein g , this one said "We're a l l the sa m e . Noth i n g matters" fol l owed by a smokers­ cou g h . H i s crowd never sm i led . My suspicions were confi rmed when ta l ki ng to one of h i s students. "So how long have you been at th is place?" " U h , wel l , I don't know". I Don 't Kno w a nd I cant, spoken i n slow and slurred speech a re the l ife- m ottos of the 50energy. "What is time, after all?" the guy added . From his depressed tone you could tel l he was not referri ng the state of Timeless Bliss at level 600. "I g uess its about 3 yea rs now" he fi n a l ly added . "Wow, that's a long ti m e . So what h ave you been doing the last th ree yea rs?" I i n q u i red . Th e g uys eyes were dead . N o spark of hope or joy in them . It just so ha ppened that he had no rea l concept of doing, m a ki n g h is state a perfect cou nterfeit of levels 600+ .These people had retreated from the worl d ; they d i d not a ppear to be interested i n anything. They had stopped learn i n g , stopped q uestion i n g , stopped worki ng long ago. M ost of the times they l i e around i n shabby wood- bed rooms l i sten i n g to tapes of the "master" sq u a b b l i n g inane "truths". Th e other ti mes they wo u ld s i t in the -masters g a rden" l i ke pensioners ready to croa k. I could have g uessed their 50-ish rea l ity from the broch u res ha nded to me two blocks down the street. The a rtwork was cheesy, featu ri ng the head of the -ascended master" l ooking l i ke a cheap i m itation of Jesus, and a bleachy-yel l ow ri ng a ro u nd his hea d . Th is is all q uite a mazing a n d I mention it here beca use one ca n ta ke spiritua l truths and indeed d rag them all the Nay down to lower l evels. One ca n pretend to be -- 68 --

someth i n g one is not. Th is is not unco m m on at level 50 beca use a pathy disgu ises emotions. The tra g i c wai l i n g o f a level 80-g rief person cou l d never be m istaken for a cal m spiritual teacher, b u t level 50 cou l d p u l l it off. Counse l , Thera py o r Coaching often prove futi le for th e chro n ic 50 state . Touch may help, but they don't want to be touched . Picture the teenager experiencing a bout of a pathy, l ocki ng herself i nto her room and p u l l i ng down the shades. Mom goes i n to console her a n d offer assista n ce but she shrieks away. " Do n 't touch m e ! ". Its d ifficu lt to stay in apathy when l oving touch i s appl ied . But to them that to uch does not feel l i ke love, it feels l i ke someth ing desp icable - i nsects crawl i ng up ones ski n . Conta ct to the outside world wou l d help but they do not want to meet a nyo ne (except for those cultists just mentioned who would be ha ppy for someone to join them i n their bland form of silent sufferi n g ) . Sunsh i n e wou l d help, but they prefer da rkened rooms. Clea n i n g wo uld help but they cant sum mon the energy to clean u p their su rrou n d i n gs. Trash b u i lds up. Don't con de m n them fo r it. Trying to clean up on level 50 feels l i ke an i m possibly h uge task. The whole body is heavy, head blurry and the m i n d thick. S i m ple tasks, s u c h a s ta king o u t trash feels l i ke having to wa l k th rough a dense swa m p fu l l of snakes. A swa m p that ca n suck you down if you move too m uch. Con necti ng them to the i r suppressed sa d ness (80) wou l d be helpfu l . . . but havi ng a l ready given up they m i g ht not respon d . Are you fee l i n g how almost hopeless it is to help the hopeless? "What?" is a response the ch ro n ic 50 w i l l often voice; menta l p rocessi ng is sl ower. If you know a person who consta ntly feels the need to over-explain and over­ em phasize th i ngs as if yo u 're stu pid, you know this person has been spen d i n g a lot of ti me trying to ta l k to 50-ish- menta l ities.

Th ose who spend too m uch ti me here w i l l soon fi nd themselves l oosi n g their jobs a nd maybe even th e i r homes. QUite a n u m ber o f homeless people vibrate at this frequency. Look i nto their eyes and notice how they have lost hope . The u n iverse is actu ally so abund a nt with energy that its extremely h a rd to get down to that level of sq ualor. I n th is stra nge sense one cou l d say that these people are very strong souls, considering they can resist the steady strea m of abundance flowing throughout. These pla nes often crave for h a rd d rugs and h a rd alcohol for te mpora ry rel ief on the sca le. You can imagine the severe heaviness of his rea l ity if whiskey offe red " relief, at last!" The only th ing whiskey does to levels a b ove 200 is - create heavi ness ! Drug addiction comes a bout if one sta rts believing that th is is the o n ly way to experience relief a n d that rea l ity is indeed as blea k as perceived . The Kind-Hea rted who attem pt to donate money to a 50s-reg ion be warned. An energy-field can not attract anyth ing d ifferent than what it is. I once created a package of school-materi a l worth $5000 Dollars to send to a newly b u i l t school i n Sierra Lon e . I was excited about the p rospect of helping a school in a war-torn reg ion where c h i l d ren a re more l i kely to handle a machine-gun than a pen. My package never arrived at its desti nation . Frustrated at the loss but not giving up, I prepa red a nother package of s i m i la r va l ue, this time using a speci a l courier service to m a ke very sure it a rrives at the schoo l . The package did a rrive safely, the resident teacher was g ratefu l for the gift but then the enti rety of the materi a l - pens paper, pictu re books, crayons - was stolen out of the school­ build ing . It b roke my hea rt. Sen d i n g goods or money to a 50-energy is l i ke throwing it into a fireplace . The desperation of the 70s energy i s so intense that he w i l l do anyth i n g not t o fa l l t o 50 a n d below. Theft of "'"1aterial goods keeps h i m from sinki n g l ower. So its -- 70 --

n ot that th ese cri m inals a re "bad" or "evi l " or "hea rtless" - we wou l d probably do the very sa me th ings i n order to avoid the living hell below 70. S ierra Lone is ravaged by hoards of 70s. I fi n a l l y got wise a n d i nstead donated money to a g roup of soci a l l y conscious a n d active rap m usic a rtists there. They wou l d know best what to do with it. One reason a pathy often stays in a pathy is beca use feelings such as deep g rief (80) a n d rage ( 1 55 ) ap pear more pai nfu l tha n it - a lthough they a re higher states. You 're on 50 and rise to 1 66 by going into mad rage . . . b u t this is pushed back down beca use of its supposed i n a ppropriateness a nd beca use violence causes harm to others . Some cou ntries cu rrently reside i n 50s­ energy as a whole. These req u i re specia l dipl omatic ca re beca use, once they rise to 1 60 they wi l l become dangerous to the rest of society. In their ra ge they w i l l want t o attack other nations. S o rather th an push i n g them back into u n movi ng resig n ation, a g reat a m o u nt of d i p l o macy i n face of their a nger is i n order. Otherwise they go from a nger back to a pathy rou n d a n d rou n d without t h e col lective hea l i ng process being completed . The type of diplom acy req u i red is one that is at least rud i m enta ri ly awa re of different levels of understa n d i n g , different levels of va l u e . Th e reason why d i plomacy fa ils more often than not is because of i g nora n ce of the va rious real ity- levels. Th e best exa m ple of leve l - 50 nation is North Korea of the ea rly 2 1 st Centu ry. Here you h ave an entire nation in apathy, i m p risoned by a tota l ita ria n system resid i n g 80 poi nts hig her (fear a nd a nger) . You ca n o n l y ru l e level 50 from levels h ig her tha n i t . A n d in order to m a i nta i n you r rule, you have to invest effort to keep the pop u lace down there . North Koreans a re not a l lowed to travel a b road, do not have proper i nternet access, do n ot learn of other co untries and rea l ities, do not have a choice i n who leads the m , h a rd ly have a ny food . Al l these a re typica l tra its of that energy-field . -- 71 --

Wel l -org a n ized a n d extremely delicate methods of diplomacy a n d international focus wou ld a l l ow North Koreas leadership to ascend to 190 ( Pride, Antagonism) without " loosing fa ce" (a con cern of a l l level 1 60s . . . w h i c h is p recisely w h y they s o often m a ke -- 72 --

fools of themselves, fro m our perspective) . The world m ust understa nd that a 1 60 has no rea l power. .. except in bombs a n d wea pons. But on lower levels than 1 60 not even these bombs work ve ry we l l . The leader of North Korea will not use bombs if a l lowed to ascend to the sweet rel ief of 1 9 0 . To get h i m up there the d i plo matic politician wo u ld do wel l to pra i se the "greatness" of his co untry and the "bri l l ia nce" of h i s m i nd . . . or, if hyperbole is n o t p refe rred, a t least a cknowledge h i s va l i d ity. Th is would cause h i m to swell i n pride a n d loosen u p a bit, ascending to the boredom of a 190 . I n th i s state he wou ld g ive h i s people some leeway and settle a few disputes with neighbo u ri ng South Korea . At level 200 his system would beg i n to cru m ble a n d tu rn i n to a Democracy ( 250-420) a n d em brace various fo rms o f Capita l ism ( 1 60-490) . A word of ca ution : Th e u ndeveloped co u ntry is not " i n a ppropriate" as in som eth i n g to look down on in a n el itist ( 1 90) or racist ( 1 00) way. Life wo rks throu gh contrast. You wou l d not know what you prefer if there was no exa mple of what you do not prefer. Such rea l ities serve as exa m ples for oth ers to exercise their free will a n d be something other than that. Alth ough I keep using the term "l ower levels" th is i s not meant i n a d e n i g rati ng sense . N o rth Korea for exa mple is not "worse" i n a n a bsol ute sense, but sim ply different. Desiring for the whole world to be the sa me or to a g ree to a certa i n (western ) sta n dard is desi ri n g to suppress the diversity a soul longs for. Sta ndard i zation and " m a ki n g everyth i n g the sa me" is counter­ productive . The sou l celebrates d ifferences, rather than usi ng them to justify hatred . Consider that before you sta rt to "free the world" from lower states as some cu lts a n d politiCians a re trying . The energy that tries to m a ke other cou ntries "the same" is no different tha n the energy-level of North Korea that tries to m a ke its populace "eq u a l " by suppressing i ndividual ity.

That sa i d , j ust beca use a co u ntry is of a 50 energy field does not mea n that a l l of its people a re . It is very possi ble to rest i n higher levels of energy no matter the envi ron ment. It is a d m itted ly easier to be 200 in a 200 environ ment, but the ski l led can m a i nta in their level of energy anywhere, provided they a re able to retreat i nto natu re for i n sta nce (someth i ng h a rd l y possi ble in a priso n , w h i c h is w h y cultivati ng energy there is even more of a challenge ) . When I travel to cou ntries that a re of sign ifica ntly l ower energy- levels I ca n m a i nta i n my own level easily for about a week. Staying there a ny l onger would result in a slight d rop in my own energy. One exa m p le is Egypt, m a ny parts of which reside i n the 50s (its Govern ment however, happens to be i n the 300s) . My level at that ti me was 350 ( neutra l ity, i nterest, attenti o n ) , so it was sti l l possi ble for m e to get su cked in b y lower fiel ds. H a d I stayed at the bea utifu l 4-sta r beach resort (300) it would have been no problem to m a i nta i n my state but I freq uently ventu red out into the "rea l culture" there . Th e fi rst day was fi ne, b u t after awhile the heat sta rted getting to me and I performed no practice to keep my state u p . Soon I sta rted getti n g i rate with the Ara bs . Getting i rate about other cultures is 1 90-ish behaviour. The more I complai ned about them, the more I synced in to 190 which is the fi rst level i n which l ess energy i s ava i la b le to move u pwards. 190 bri ngs with it exhaustion, frustration, d iscontent. I started eati ng out at level 1 90 resta u ra nts such as Burger King - which serve to m a g n ify the 190-energy. Al l this eventually turned i nto 1 60 (anger) . I was consta ntly su rrou nded by people beg g i n g me for money a n d the a nger was mounti n g . A week later I bega n having fa ntasies of going to town a nd purchasing d rugs, someth i n g presu mably forbidden i n the Isla m i c country. Th is was a clea r i n d icator that I was beg i n n in g to m ove to the v i b ratory l evel of 1 2 5 which would seek a higher state with d rugs o r sex. Th is was fasci nati ng to me beca use back home I had never been interested i n drugs. But surrou nded by 50-- 74 --

ish apathy, level 1 2 5 ( l ust, craving, need i n ess) sudden ly beca me a ppea l i n g . I caught myself before I went to town seeking "fu lfi l ment" a n d retreated back to the beach hotel to get some rest. The "fu lfi l ment" one gets from 1 25-stages is never satisfyi n g . Lyi n g at the beach, my state q u ickly went back up to 200 (boredom) and 275 ( a ctivity) and 350 ( learn i ng , interest, com m u n ication ) a n d I wondered h o w I co uld ever s i n k down to that level of frustration . Then, before ventu ri n g out into Egypt again I made sure to plan to visit places of h ig h energy. The Pyra m ids, 5 3 0 . A mosq ue decorated b y a mazing a rtwork, 5 0 5 . The beach at sunrise, accompan ied by the morn i ng cha nts of the M u sl i m , 520. So yes, even in cou ntries of lower vibration there a re plenty opportu n ities to fi nd sacredness a n d bea uty. In the 50s the senses a re d u l led which is why the enterta i n ment soug ht must be extreme without req u i ri n g any menta l work from the person involved . Music is genera l ly not a ppreci ated . And if a ny sort of music generates a n emotional response it wo uld have to be very loud, h a rd , d isto rted . " M usic" styles such as " Death Meta l " or ultra - h a rdcore-techno come to m i n d . I n a pathy not even the most g ruesome blood-and gore movies evoke m uch of a response. "That a i n 't no horror-fl ick. I 've seen worse " wou l d be the typica l no­ hum comment. Of cou rse horro r-m ovies a re sought in order to ra ise the level to 1 00 (fear) but ra ising the apathy person is a l ways a bit of a cha l lenge, no matter how b ruta l th i n gs get. O n ly the m ost vile i m a g es m i g ht g a rner a reaction . . . but those i mages wou l d not be com i ng from 1 00 (fear) but from 30 ( h u m i liation, hatred ) to 20 (demon ic) . Th is is actu a l l y where the "secret" of school-shooti ngs and a mok-runs lies. The boy is overwhelmed with fea r. Suppressing it he moves down to a pathy. H e tries to get out of a pathy by playing u ltra -violent video-g a m es a l l day, which move h i m d own to 30, a place in which -- 75 --

It's o d d t o observe h ow neither pol ice officers nor ed u cators seem to have a clue a bout how such shooti ngs happen, let a l one be able to prevent them . Outlawing violent ga mes would not prevent the m . Violent g a mes a re not the cause b u t a n ind icator of ones en ergy-leve l . The cause is the general energy field. And descent i nto that energy-field beg ins, when a person goes out of com m u n ication with h i s environ ment. If there is a teen that goes for m onths without ta lking m u ch , without m uch eye-conta ct to pa rents and schooltea chers, it wou l d be h i g h time to have a chat with h i m . There a re m a ny d ifferent ki nds o f 50s q u a l ities a n d to someone unfa m i l i a r with rea d i n g the energ ies, many of these people and places will seem to be entirely unrelated . What does the fa ke-g u ru have to do with the death- meta l-fa n or the beggar? It is an i n ner level of fee l i n g , or in the case of 50, non-feeling. And there are those where you wou ld h a rd l y recog n ize it by su rface a p pea ra n ces . Don't judge a book by its cover. I myself have spent some time, sometimes entire weeks, i n a pathy (oth erwise I m ight not be able to recog n ize it i n others - it ta kes one to know one ! ) . Luckily I a m a good actor so nobody could rea l ly tel l . I masked it. Th is was a phase i n my l ife when I thought I had a l ready achieved everyth ing one can achieve . That was followed by the bel ief that there is noth ing more to do. Rather than tra nscending the state I slowly, h a rd ly noticea bly fel l down into a pathy. It started by com p l a i n i n g a bout the world, viewing everyone as dumb ( 1 70 ) . Then it went down to sadness of nobody understa n d i n g me (80) a n d fi n a l l y I "settled " into 5 0 . I was i n den i a l of it myself for some -- 76 --

ti m e . I would not answer e m a i l s fro m potential customers. I wou l d not answer the phone. None of it interested m e . I del u ded myself i nto thinki n g that I had fou n d peace ! But this sort of "peace" is o n ly a sort of ti red ness with life . It is the type of "peace" I got from renti ng severa l videos, ordering pizza and beer a n d then crashing out on the couch the entire weekend, my belly g rowi ng bigger than my d i rty white t-sh i rt. The denial of the state was the main reason I was not getting out. My acti ng -ski l l s were so good that I cou l d cond uct an entire seminar on success in that state . I could only do that once though, energy does not last longer than that on 5 0 . That is a lso why it is easy for me to spot a l i a r it takes one to kno w one. It is h u mans inherent i n nocence that m a kes them easy prey for con- men . H u m a n s a re na'ive a n d ca n be made to believe a l m ost a nyth i n g . But even if their m i nds d id not know, the soul always kno ws. The sou l feels. Th ere is no poi nt in hiding a nyth i n g from the sou l . -

M y own p hase of a pathy lasted for about half a yea r before I went th rough a pai nfu l process of moving back u p to my native state . I had betrayed myself and others d u ring that time a n d d id my best to m a ke a mends towa rds th ose I had betrayed . Bei ng accounta ble for my thoug hts and actions there is no need for forg iveness from outside so u rces, nor a re other peop les judgements of any i m porta nce. Energy itself "j u dges" me as I get back what I put out. I n this sense "Judgement Day" is every day.

In western society a pathy is usually t h e resu lt o f the bel ief that one has fa iled or that it is pointless to strive for someth ing better.

Not that these stories a re not utterly ho rrific and worthy of the news. But this energy-level will (often secretly) revel i n them not in order to discuss solutions for societies problems but to justify feel i ngs of pity and hopelessness. The stories featu re 80s problems, written by 80s moods for 80s peo ple. Of a l l the th ings happening in the world, o f the b i l l ions of thi ngs one co uld invest attention i n , they choose th ese items as "th e m ost i m po rtant".

But i n rad iating the energy of pity ( rather tha n strength ) they are not actua l ly helping a nyon e . Compassion comes Tom love ( 540) a n d the i n tention to em power (350) someone.

In the 80s "selfless service" equals self-neg lect, in the 500s it is u nderstood that I ca n serve others best if I a m in good shape myself.

Level 80 is certa i n l y prefera ble to 50 - at least someth i n g is being felt whereas in 50 a l m ost noth i n g is felt. I f a ny action is ta ken a t a l l then it is mostly to appease a n d " m a ke a good i m p ression". Concern over "what others th i n k" is pop ular here . The 80s a re worried what others th i n k a bout them, i nclud i n g com p lete id iots. Th ey don't know that below- 3 1 0 levels don't rea l l y care a bout them . The 1 65 chol eric merely wa nts to boss the 80s-employee a rou nd because he does not have the energy to exercise power over any level a bove h i m . Hea l i ng th i s energy may invo lve releasing ones past, psychoan alysis, sh ock- a n d tra u m a h a n d l i n g , fea r confrontation, new su rro u n d i ngs, new friends, ca re and attention (the i r whole masq uerade is performed i n the m ista ken belief that they a re not getting attenti o n ; th eir a i l m ent i s actu a l ly a n i n a b i l ity to g i ve attention to themselves), conventional thera py, a n d beco m i n g awa re o f what is and is n ot i m portant t o oneself. It is easier to p rogress from 80 to 100 than from levels below beca use just a l ittle more energy is ava i lable. With g reat exertion the 80 ca n also create gen u i ne a nger ( 1 60) once in awhile (wh ich is then often celebrated in tri u m p ha nt gl ee) . For those with m i nor 80s pockets crying is a good release. If you a l l ow yourself to cry and cry and cry until tea rs are no more you w i l l eventu a l ly reach a point where you say "OK, what's next? " Th is means you have released, will feel somewhat l ighter and be ready to move on to someth ing new, perh a ps someth i n g more constructive . One way to m ove from 80 to 1 2 5 is by deli berately putti n g yourself i nto cha l lenging situations you were afra id of. Th is compels you to move to 100 (fea r) i n order to do the task a n d to 1 2 5 ( beyond fea r) after the task is completed and you see it was noth i n g to be afra id of. An 80s-energy may be afra i d of the most -- 86 --

s i m ple things such as ta l king to neigh bours or rid i n g a bike . I know it's hard to i ma g i n e for some, but th at's level 80 a n d there a re many m i l l ions of people i n th is state . By su ppressing th is fea r one sinks from 1 00 to 80 in the fi rst pl ace . So by going out into life a nd actu a l ly confronting these th i ngs, one ra pidly moves up for good . You may sti l l feel the shyness that one feels in 1 00, but you will no longer be the completely powerless victim you were in the 80s. A repetition of such a cts, especially the "going out there a n d getting i n touch with the worl d " will eventually tra nsform a l l pockets of 80 . U n less its your basic ha bitu a l state, its fa i rly easy to leave beca use rema i n i n g in it req u i res that you close you rself off towa rd to other people a nd the here-now. O n ce back i n the present mo ment, the 80-energy col l a pses u nder the intensity of rea lity. "Getting in tou ch with others" does however not mean getting i n touch with oth er 80-energies. That wo u l d only l e a d t o a m u t u a l confi rmation o f ones stuckn ess . Another com m on tra it of this leve l , especi a l l y the 90s is to act l i ke a l ittle kid that won't get his way. Therefore to "toughen up", "get rea l " and "stop being a sissy" is a path to leaving the 80s . The 80s person is often in an i nfa nti le state where he th i n ks he needs to cry or shout i n order to get h i s way. But that's not how the world works . So "grow u p ! " m ig ht be the appropriate motto extended towa rds h i m .

you a re ti m id or worried : Go to 1 60 by d i recting hot, fiery rage at what you were afra id of. The fea r w i l l va n ish with i n seconds. A n emotion that c a n enslave one fo r yea rs, ca n be d isappear with i n second s . That's how i l l u sory fea r is. It is noth i n g but a n energy-field i n the body that can not b e u pheld under close scrutiny or by sh ifti n g attention to a nger. If you a re not a habitua l 1 00 person , then fea r is a lso of service to yo u in that it sho ws you wh ich thoug hts, i ntenti ons, plans, actions or surroundings a re no good for you . It is the sou ls way to say " Wait. Don 't go in that direction ". I n this a l ternative sense, fea r should be appreciated as a guidance system . Here you a re meant to cease a l l actio n , retreat, sit down, ta ke a break a n d l ook with i n a n d fi nd out wh ich d i rection is better, u nti l you feel at ease aga i n . When you feel fea r, honour it as a n avigational tool rath er than n u m b i n g it back down i nto a pathy. Natural fear is q u ite different tha n fea r as a chronic

energy-level . It a rises to te l l you to retreat or go somewhere else . You see a g i a nt snake sl ithering up you r bed a n d feel fear? That feel i ng is a n ind icator that it is time to leave the room a n d ca l l up a special ist to get rid of the venomous creatu re . Only a fool would try to be a l l tough a n d "use the opportun ity to confront my fea rs". Confronting -fear is only usefu l when you feel the energy without there being a ny natu ral cause for it. That cobra is a natura l ca use, genetica l ly i n h erent in every h u m a n interested in survival ( of cou rse it a lso has to do with the fact that the consciousness-level of a poisonous snake is 95 i l l ­ i ntent) . The snake a t 9 5 ca n only survive in a n a rea that supports that energy-level . Therefore, if you ha ppen u pon such a snake you know that its ti me to get you r own v i b ratory leve l back u p to speed .

Wa rmongeri n g does wea ken the 170s, 1 80s, 200s, but it empowers those that were i n apathy. Know i n g this we ca n see the world with more compassion a n d tolera nce, we see that some of this "negative" energy is needed for the elevation of the sorry m asses d rifting through a pathy-hel l . No offence to the pacifists, but the macho-a g g ression of the U S Marines a l ong with some o f the rag i n g l u natics of mil ita ry Africa or the a n g ry ra nts of the rel i g ious fa natic serve to elevate the depressed and repa i r lower levels with i n mass-consciousness.

others . She wants to domi nate and oppress a n d uses threats of pu n ishment a n d violence to do so . On bad days she wi l l a lso resort to physical aggressi on . World Wa r II was a d i splay of how destructive th i s energy­ field ca n become when it g a i n s momentu m . WWII was one g iga ntic 160-fest. For society it wou l d therefore be i m portant to ch annel this en ergy into constru ctive d i rections or hyd rate the fi re of rage with the el ement of water before it tu rns i nto m a n i c destruction spree. Where there is a n abundance o f water you will genera l ly fi nd less violence . Ta ke a ny beach town or island and check thei r statistics on tensions and fighting as com pa red to i n l and reg ions. Even though they a re at the Med iterra nean Israel and Pa lestine a re no exceptions. Th eir l a n d is a rid and they have been having a water crisis for as long as they've been wag i ng wa r. Lack of water a n d heat a re not the "ca use" of the outbrea k of violence but, a g a i n , just an other sym ptom of a certa in energy-field . But change only one of the p uzzle-pieces of that field a n d other aspects of it natu ra l ly fol low. Th is is someth i n g not q u ite yet understood by l i near­ consciousness that domi nates our politicia ns a n d scientists . Th e moment those wag i n g wa r actua l ly prefer peace, these things a nd m a ny others w i l l be come to light. Men who habitua l ly beat women a re chron ica l ly stu ck at 1 60 . A wom a n who is a lso at 160 would h it back with force, u n less he ma nages to beat her down into fea r with the most forcefu l means. Ra ising ones voice reg u l a rly and wa l ki ng a round utterly convi nced of ones own rig htness is a giveaway of 160-energy. Despite th eir a ppeara nce of strength , levels bel ow 2 5 0 do n o t really h ave strength i n a ny u n iversa l sense. Th ey believe force achieves more tha n true power but all it does is destroy. Force creates a counter-force . -- 129 --

Th eir actions create reta l i ation . In the end noth ing is ga ined . True power is someth i n g d ifferent. Neither is there p u b l i c d isplay of a uthority a sign of "true power". Th at would do noth i ng other than make them a targ et. Anyone who knows the fi rst thing about true power stays out of the spotlight. If you a re a 200 person the 160 w i l l actually feel i n secure i n your mere presence, even if he doesn't show it but conti n u es to swing his sword . If, while attacked by h i m , you rema i n on you r level rather tha n fa l l ing to fea r ( 1 00 ) , h i s body will sta rt to go wea k. Th is means either h i s knees beg i n to tremble or he l ooses h i s com posu re or h i s a nger tri ckles out into mere a ntagonism ( 1 8 5 ) . The secret of the 1 60 beati ng you is to get you to buy into fea r, get you to believe there is a n a ctu a l threat. Otherwise he wont be able to h u rt you . If a 1 60 is holding a gun at you, there a re two poss i b i l ities. Either d uck/ru n or deve lop a 500+ en ergy-field, wh ich w i l l g u a ra ntee your safety in this l ife or the afterl ife . It is extremely difficult to shoot a 500+ radia nce of p u re l ove . Ones arms go wea k, shooti ng becomes awkward , one misses the target. But even if you achieve to shoot the 500, you have just hel ped h i m enter celestia l rea l m s . Th is i s the tech n i q u e G h a n d i used when facing British Troops who were ready to shoot h i m and brea k h i s protest. H a d G h a n d i ta ken their machismo seriously and fa llen into fea r ( 1 00) or cou nter-ag g ression ( 1 60) the sa me thing that happens i n a l m ost all a rmed confl i cts would have happened : M a ny deaths, no rea l victory for a ny of the sides.
