Let's list the things that make complete sense even though they go against the flow of accepted consensus:
awareness and consciousness link far and wide, across this planet and beyond, even as far as worlds and spheres we can't comprehend
material sensibility is a persistent illusion
solitary experience is notional, who knows what kind of junction happens because of human skin?
what you believe doesn't make it so
no story is cast in eternal stone
consciousness arises from neither birth nor body, and does not decay on death
the five senses create a natural focus which is more of a constraint that a clarity
intuition and imagination offer paths to a para-natural clarity for which there is plenty of evidence:if you don't accept this, it's because you don't want to
authoratarian religion doesn't make it authoratative
authoratative science is attitudinal and can't be actual, nothing works for everybody all the time, and if you keep an open mind about laws, watch what happens
the games that adults play are deadly whereas the games that children play are creative
heaven (or the lack thereof) isn't waiting for you, it's in the moment of the here and now
the story that you tell yourself about your life is always insufficient
the story that others tell you about your life is always insufficient
more than you realize is always happening
if you haven't created your sense of self on purpose, it's been constructed for you by others
life and death aren't opposites, you're alive now, if you're reading this, and you're even more alive than you think, in respect of never coming to an end, even when your body stops working
grief is evidence of ignorance
and so on, and so on......you must have the drift by now.
The meta-narrative is that kind of consciousness into which we grow whereas narratives are accounts by which we make sense of experiences. Consciousness is not merely cerebral. Most of it is emotional awareness and highly volatile. Belief is about making an holistic commitment which can be particlarly unhappy if you commit to something which won't do you any good in the long run, like a spouse who has no congruence with you, a job that you can't do, a goal that damages humankind in the core, like sheer profiteering, or religious fanaticism.
Biofocusing finds the way between a tightly controlled mind and a free-ranging awareness. Our acts of consciousness have not been definitvely listed: emotional intelligence has helped to balance the scales, and every other kind of intelligence has been brought up, too.
The big issue is that we'll never be able to objectify that marvellous thing called the consciousness of the mind, which is a tautology, even before you start. The language - consciousness continuum is something of a red herring: tell me what you believe, and I'll show you your magical thinking.
Emerson offered the advice to take the path away from man, not to man. Humankind isn't the centre of anything except the greed for money and a genuis for cruelty. It really is beyond time to wake up and move from this to something better.
Heaven is now, and it's better to co-operate rather than argue over words, fight about emotional platforms and kill for beliefs.
But how do we know what heaven is communicating and doing? The politicians are almost entirely rubbish (I'm thinking of that South American president who drives a Beetle -only him - as the exception), the preachers are mostly rubbish, the academics don't know the difference between rubbish, business leaders thrive on rubbish, so how could we recognize the gleam of heaven seeking to glow through the narrative of our lives?
Go to the magical moments of your life. Insert the pictures. I have many. A golden sunset on Chapman's Peak Drive. A descent through the mist from Alleheiligeberg in Switzerland. Moments of rare warmth between friends. A knowing of deep acceptance. An intense recognition by a stranger. Grace in many unexpected, undeserved places. A walk with a dog.
Biofocusing will, I hope, come into its own, just as psychotherapy did. It's purpose, as I think of it, is to popularize a depth of honesty, to create a path for experience to say something new to the world we now find around ourselves. We have never created the ground on which we stand, but we have certainly created how we communciate about everything, without stopping to sense the greater communication of which we are part.
What changes the world is not necessarily the grand plan, it's the daily movement not of twenty-four hours but of conscious awareness infusing and suffusing human corpuscles, bringing the dream from where it used to be to where it's going. Our co-operation means very much more than we think. But we know that, anyway.
