Approaches to Being

Whatever you meet in life, your approach to it is important. Whether it is a dream, a religion or a discipline, what you bring to it brings either an open way or a shut door. Approaches to being is about the spiritual paths and dicsciplines that can lead to a fuller life. I have tried here to show a deeper understanding to such paths – a new way.

I Am

This is a very simple way of encouraging the flow of self expression. Although simple it can be very satisfying and interesting to do. Have plenty of space for this. You will need room to pace about without feeling restricted. So comfortable clothes are also important. The length of time can be anyt...More

Genesis – The Beginning of Things

During the experience in question I felt I was at the very beginning of the universe. I knew and experienced that beginning of things as a huge awareness. There was no separation in it at all. I had the impression that prior to it a whole universe had existed that had gradually sunk back, melted, o...More

Contraction – Expansion

This is to do with fundamental life processes. If you watch your chest for a while you will observe its contractions and expansions in breathing. Your heart too constantly contracts and expands. Sleeping and waking contract and expand consciousness. Life and death are an expansion and contraction. P...More

The Charismatic or Pentecostal Movements

One of the best known traditional approaches to inner-directed movement in our own culture is that which lies at the roots of Christianity. In reading Acts of The Apostles in the New Testament, in which the experience of Pentecost is described, a definite impression of a group practising inner-direc...More

LSD and Drugs

Some of the most effective work with the principle of homeostasis was done with LSD prior to its being made illegal. A number of psychiatrists were registered to work with it. To understand this positive side to these drugs, it is useful to read such books as Myself and I by Constance Newland; and ...More

God’s Chosen People – The Way of Subud

Considering Reich’s work it is interesting now to look at the influence of Muhammed Subuh. He was born and lived in Indonesia, working as an accountant for many years. His main interest in life was to seek out some of the many gurus in his country, and attempt a deeper awareness of life’s myste...More

Dianetics – Co-counseling and Accessible Homeostasis

In the 50’s Ron Hubbard published a book about his work called Dianetics. It was revolutionary in its claims of self-help psychotherapy, because until then such healing had been firmly in the hands of specialists or cults such as Subud – both being jealous of their field and requiring either hi...More

Christianity’s Unwanted Secret
