Finally we approach the 'Great Work' of Self-Actualisation,
and deal with questions such as:
What is life all about? Where is the Human Race going?
And what can we do about it?
I am - possibly slightly confusingly - using the term 'Mythic Quest' both as a reference to the work of Joseph Campbell (where he sees mythology in terms of metaphors of self and societal development) and to the act of interacting with mythology in more
I should also mention that this section assumes a reasonable amount
of experience using the technologies on the rest of the site:
- using mindfulness to clear out old tensions
from your mind-body system and gain a level of detachment from
the 'drama movies' that occasionally start-up in the imagination
- using 'focussed questions' to install a more solutions-oriented
way of thinking.
- the 'Higher Power' / 'Divine Ally' paradigm
I should also point out that there is nothing in this section that anyone
needs to concern themselves with should their interests be
limited to improving their personal happiness / success.
Everything required will be in the other sections of this site.
This section is really for people who have already demonstrated to
themselves that the visualisation / belief technologies work,
and have found this endeavour to raise yet more questions:
What does it all mean?
what else could we do with this stuff?
Is there something we are 'supposed' to be doing with it?
There is a possibility that all of the things I'm talking about here
are just re-inventions, re-discoveries, of concepts
once known and used by the human race.
The problem is that this implies that this knowledge has been lost
at least once in the past - and if we can't figure out a way
to make this information more self-maintaining then it might
Maybe sometimes it's
accidentally de-railed by well-meaning but essentially clueless people.
Other times this information has been deliberately suppressed
and destroyed, though is this out of fear or as a means of control who
We need a more reliable way to preserve and transmit this information.
Without a doubt the 'flow-state' itself is the best way to
convey the 'experiential essence' of the subject.
What you'd need is someone who can create and hold a good flow-state
that would allow surrounding people - anyone in 'rapport' with this person -
to generate a small 'sympathetic' version of the 'flow-state' experience
within their own mind/body.
At that point verbal discussions / teachings to elucidate the
process would be far less vulnerable to the
'thinking we're talking about the same thing but actually we're not'
style of misunderstanding.
