Changing of the Habitual Picture of the World
|Development of qualities|
To change the HPW (The Habitual Picture of the World) of a person it is nesessary to develop additional qualities in him. Such qualities, which he hasn't possessed before. Additional qualities in every new situation help to behave in another way than you do before, but more fully, considering more details.
In what way new qualities are developed?
The ability to change - it's also a quality. And it should be one of the first to develop. And it appears that when a person finds himself in a difficult situation, he at once switches on this quality, and as far as the person already possesses this quality, the presence in it is quite comfortable and obviously useful. So, one by one, difficulties begin to disappear from life, and what is left is just regular presence in the quality "the ability to change".
One of the main practical tasks on the way to development is studying other people. There shouldn't be left any question relative to WHAT, HOW, WHY and WHAT FOR do other people do anything. There could be left just such questions which require a certain type of information and time for recieving it, but all the principal positions should be studied and should be clear.
|Level of development|
The answer to the question "what's to be done?" isn't important. More,
it is senseless. Who needs such an answer? the person who acts? No.
The person who thinks "what to do?" No! The searching of the answer to
the question "what's to be done?" - it's an existance, in the quality
"searching for an answer to the question "what's to be done?".
In such a quality no answer would become an instruction for acting.
The searching will continue. The presence in the quality will continue.
The answer would be swallowed, probably, remembered, somehow thought over but there
wouldn't be any action.
There should be put a question about turning of a person into another quality.
Suddenly I decided (for myself, of course) koan "one-palm clap". What's interesting, I haven't ever thought about it. But it occurred to me suddenly that one-palm clap - it's any of my actions. If you destroy the usual fulcrum of intellect - thought "I"- it appears, that all that is been done, roots in nothing. And somehow I feel that. And even intellectual understanding of that gives much freedom.
That, what happened to you - the moment of understanding - is not an intellectual
understanding :))) At the moment of "insight" there was born
some new quality in your brains. It was raping, training and suddenly - bang!
you understood - it've riped. It's like a pole-vault jumper jumps-jumps,
and can't overcome 6-meter height. But 1000-th time - yes! And now if a jumper
would be given a pole in the middle of the night, that doesn't mean that this time
he also overcomes it! The same with you: you can't always answer, what
"one palm clap" is, because it's not an intellectual understanding.
Every time answers will be different.
|Presence in qualities|
Communication with another person is entirely tied to your personal aims
I've thought it over. I see two ways of dealing with that. the 1-st. Not to communicate with people if there are no aim. (And not to be nervous about that)
And if there appears a nessecity to have a communication, you should presicely realise the aim of it and keep it (the aim) in mind.
Well, yes, first "keep in mind", and then it will be simply
The 2-nd. Ask Lotos and also watch in life -
is there an aimless communication? And if yes, understand how it happens and
You considered such aims as:
Have you got any examlpes of the communication, which can be called
Yes. hum...(surprisingly) What to communicate with a person for, if you have not got any aim? (excluding the moments, mentioned before.)
Here you are the three aims to start thinking from :)))
:)) Thank you. (OK. Will be done, sir :))
The thing is such. You are right, I really can dwell upon something and has reached definite success in that. But as a result I delved so deeply only in the sphere of mentsl processes, that all the time I live so-to-say - in my mind. It is more cute to find a problem,to solve it, to think up several ways how to solve it, visualise th results (all this in my minds eye), than act. But! After I've lived all this in my mind's eye, it's not interesting for me to realise all this in practice. For me it is more interesting to solve the next problem the same way, in my mind. Here it is....
The same, you've just given me a very precise picture of the quality
:) The honoured self-digger.
Here roots the tasks for the nearest future:
I've thought it over.A very interesting thing. Many people (especially women) communicate only on emotional level. And the sense of words runs to zero (Not without reason I was always wondering, how they can manage speaking 2-3 hours over the phone "about nothing")
Moreover changes of emotional state influence
2) comprehend and try to alternate the presence in the quality
I can. I've managed it... But I can not stay long in the quality of
"emotional - user".
3) compare your own view of the world, when you are in one state
It differs greatly. By the way, the problem of communication in "emotion - user" doesn't exist.
Here comes the conclusion - if you want to get acquainted with a girl - don't think!
Everything becomes more simple. But on the other hand - a lot of
It is at the beginning.
The worse of all that is that neither intellect user, nor emotion user in me
doesn't want to
It is likely needed gaining of the wider experience in one quality
4) to look for the possibility to join both the qualities, is it possible
no, it is not... But.. Probably, yes. (there is nothing impossible) Say
this way -
First you should dwell upon it, then it is nesessary to try
I do, but the help is not concrete.
I'll try to tie it somehow
have you read Ram Dass's "Grist for the Mill"?
I've found it n your site, I've read a piece. Not quite like it....
Taking into account all his
It's the theory you've paid attention to at first :)))
In brief, the result is such - intellectually - a lot of interesting
I am of another opinion. I can assume that it is so, but for me
there is no development there.
because I've already been outside the theatre..) Emotionally - didn't like.
No thrilling or other phenomena, which accompany books, which caught me.
|How to reach nirvana?|
How to recieve answers to questions, if somebody else's answers couldn't be recieved in advance because of their subjectivity? Answer yourself? But in this case it would resemble investigation, advocate, court and prosecution all in one.
And I'll tell you what to do! :)))
You see, the question is asked not because you don't know something, not because of the absence of something certain (because another way there wouldn't arise a question), but because you can't answer it yourself. Maybe taking into consideration the thesis that a person knows everything, but he has forgotten that, having much dust in the consciousness.
You know why the question already has the answer?
So, the answer is - to clear up the consciousness, and the answers will come
themselves, and there won't be any questions? Right?
And what if in the reality everything is not like that? Having learned points of view of other people, I can understand something new and change the way of my perception.
That means that in your picture of today's world there are
Does this state have anything in common with a often mentioned state of meditation?
But do I have right understanding? I mean I use this word
Words are just coventionally used signs. Every word
In the Russian language the word "meditation" can mean
So, what means "meditation as an action"?
And what does it mean "meditation as a state"?
All these definitions are right ones. Right means that to every definition
So, now compare this to your undestanding of "meditation"
And, ideally, you should always live in meditation.
You can imagine such a model: every person is
Cool! So, in everyday life you should gradually begin
Yes, at first you should use this action
The praise for "the torture by self-control" appears quickly
What do you mean saying "active point"?
Active point is a zone of a higher activity,
So, in any system there are certain Active Points. To change the system
So, take this into consideration and use it :))))
The explanation is good but the student is a bit dumb :)
Yes, a sector - is a concrete part of our life. Starting from
The first that you should see is that all the person's actions
I suggest that you and others should set the examples here yourselves.
And the second - you should make this circle more and more
It is what is called a practice on the Path.
Don't get acquainted with everybody in the alphabetic order, coming to a new collective
Is it a hint to the forum? :)
To the forum as well :)))
The first that you should see is that all the person's actions
And why on the circle?
Because the circle doesn't have top and bottom, good and bad
Generally, is it possible to put all the person's actions in order perfectly?
That means that a model of a cicrle is also used "for a certain problems
And you shouldn't get used to the model.
You should observe balance
First I couldn't get from the theoretical model,
Now you should "give birth to a part of a connecting mechanism"
in every point
That means to see, how one is connected to another. In which part
When a person receives answers for such questions,
|I want to die|
I want to die, Lotos. But now somehow in another way
Pay attention to the fact that people say"I want to die",But nobody says
Being a student of a secondary school, I couldn't make head or tail out of the question
|The stage of untipical difficulties|
Is that right, on the other hand, that if even something is truly understood than everything would be understood?
Right, because true understanding is seen by the position from which it is realised and not by the object on which it is directed.
THere is a great desire to stop doing what is "necessary", that means to accomplish social and labour functions which have been made by a previous stage of life I'm tired. There is a desire to begin something completely new, but I don't know what. Such a "break":)
Oh! It's a serious stage:)))
I've realised for the last 3 years, that the desire
|What is fear?|
Lotos, recently I'm tortured by a question
Here it is practice that is necessary.
A definition of fear in plain words gives nothing. There should be
As a result you should possess a full understanding of the fear as
Where is it from?
From where different misfortune go:))
Why a great number of people is afraid of something?"
Why everyone wants to be happy, but only one or two
|Making a Structure of the Inner Space|
And what is it "INDEPENDENT AIMS of the certain period of life"?
It is a state of such depending-on-nothing understanding
The word "independent" underlines dependance on nothing.
In such a state there are no wasting of time, boredom
You can't come to that through discussions. You should gradually
Everybody come across such a situation:
That's why for gaining new experience quickly and can do a lot of things
At first it is really difficult, but the result
I got it. I shouldn't change places of my thoughts,
So, let's hurry up with making a STRUCTURE of the INNER SPACE!!!
Well this is a real work to build a structure:))))
Speaking in brief, the work is presence in some places such as
Then, when a person "got" this special state
|Changing of the HPW|
So, what is the sense of changing one HPW for another.
Theoretically - no sense:)))
But if a person really saw, I underline SAW that
All this can be proved by practice, not by theory.
How to break this vicious exclusive circle
The only answer is - to change yourself.
Mind, "to change" - is the verb that means
I rather doubt if I have a HPW.
And if I, like a nomad, spend every new night in a new place?
That is your HPW - to spend every night in a new place. You
The HPW - is an ability to act with the help of the same methods
And how do you fight with the gap between the understood
When there was such a gap I asked myself
* * *
But if a person really saw, I underline SAW that
Theoretically everything is clear. I'm completely with you!
The fact is you agree and see everything from the same old
There are nobody's experience to follow.
To achieve a new quality. Your today's one has such characteristics
How to make better what I already have how to find balance in all that.
For this very purpose you should become such a person to whom it is possible
For instance you, in your letters to the Training shows some
There are certain situations which are developing in such a way
To break without breaking is impossible. When there are changes
