The original purpose of this meeting
was to repurpose our spiritual companions so they could assist us in
experiencing being someone else. Our discussion led us instead to
attempting to “Be Ourselves” in the same way we had been being
We reviewed our successes in being
someone else whether it was a person, an animal or a plant and I
proposed the idea of experiencing “Being a Being”.
We know when we are being a person, we
experience full understanding of that person and we saw that it
changed us and it also changed the person. If we could do this
successfully, it could undercut all we have learned in Scientology
and in SRT so far. We could be a being or a group of beings and
achieve complete and total understanding of them.
From what we have seen so far,
achieving this degree of understanding blows all sorts of stuck
charge and the end phenomena seems to be an incredible degree of
admiration for the beings and their upsets disappear.
This seems to be the reason we have
occasionally been able to blow charge and heal beings by inspection.
At this point in the discussion, Alka
described an exercise of being many people which ended with “being
herself” and discovering many things about herself that she had
never seen before.
While she was doing this, I could
perceive all her beings being themselves at the same time. We all
took a moment to experience being Alka and it was an incredible
experience. We all experienced a new admiration for her.
We discussed how being some one might
be a higher level of healing. Instead of permeating the area and
noticing outpoints to repair. We could be the person and see what
they were doing to remain sick or had done to become sick. Once we
had become them, we would admire them and they would admire
themselves and no longer be sick. All the effort of conventional
counseling and auditing is gone. We just have to be them and get
everything and admire them. They can let go of the influences that
are harming them.
This lends credence to legends of people
like Jesus who could heal people by simply understanding them and
loving them. We are coming closer to that state ourselves, and it
warrants our continued research in this area.
The concept of “being someone” may
be simple enough that we could teach people to do this and enable
them to help others. We have already seen that there are simple
drills where someone is trained to simply be there and do nothing
except be there until they achieve an unshakable ability to remain in
present time in the face of hostile or shocking efforts to overwhelm
We can develop such training routines
when we fully understand the factors that go into “being someone”.
It may open the way to rapid training when the students can simply
“be the instructor” and fully understand what she is trying to
Being the instructor would certainly
facilitate the transfer of knowledge when students and instructors
are trained in this skill. Trained students could get the needed data
quickly and a trained instructor would be able to see if the student
had fully understood what they perceived.
While we were discussing the
difficulties of teaching people to be someone else, it occurred to me
that we should do a first exercise of being ourselves so we could get
a better grasp of the difficulties involved. If we couldn’t be
ourselves, we would have a better idea of the barriers involved and
what we would have to do to handle them.
It turned out that some of us could be
ourselves quite easily. Others had great difficulty because of some
considerations they had.
For example, if you do not know that
you are a group of living thoughts acting as a single being, you will
have difficulty understanding what you are being. Every one of you is
part of being yourselves and you are all experiencing each other. If
you think you are a single spirit, you may have great difficulty
recognizing what you are.
Most of us saw ourselves as a
collection of different ideas and habits and marveled at the funny
things we were doing or not doing. We came to admire everything we
had created and broke into laughter.
Since we are not solitary beings, being
ourselves may take a number of iterations until our understanding
becomes equal to the task. Nevertheless, each effort to experience
being ourselves leaves us more integrated than before and our
admiration for what we have become increases.
Being someone or being ourselves is
beyond confronting, beyond communication, and beyond thinking. It
results in complete understanding when done completely and we
experience admiration for what we are being.
This activity has applications beyond
“being someone”. We envision that we could eventually learn to
“be a group” of any size and change the future survival of that
group as a result.
More to come.
