18 – Cause

CHAPTER 18

CAUSE

Early on, the being can act and be at cause over things. But sometimes he regrets what he has done and inhibits himself from further action. And sometimes he becomes guilty or ashamed over what he has done and begins to withhold both his communications and himself from others. Eventually the being ends up in a state where he can’t act and cannot communicate and is holding himself tightly under control.

In this chapter we are not worried about ethics or morality or responsibility or justifications. Those are more advanced topics, because you need to confront doing things first before you can sanely consider what should or shouldn’t be done.

And its not just crimes or evil deeds that the person is withholding. Areas can shut down to the point where the person is withholding everything in that area, not just bad things but even nice things.

So the emphasis here is on spotting any actions and any restraints.

As we did with simple communication barriers, our intention here is to knock out the “subconscious” barriers to action. We want an individual to be capable of doing anything without buried inhibitions coming into play. But this does not mean irresponsibility. It simply means that the choices and actions are conscious instead of hidden. Just because you can do anything does not mean that all things are desirable or helpful.

As a further reassurance, let me point out that the fact of withholding is one of the strongest factors that causes a being’s ethical sense to deteriorate, and that the dark weight of regret leads to further mistakes which the person regrets even more. In other words, there are feedback effects at work here. Our intention is to break out of a declining spiral where the person becomes ever less capable of acting.

18.1 Willing to Do

Let’s start very simple. As always, these commands are alternated over and over.

a) What would you be willing to do.

b) What would you be willing to have another do.

c) What would you be willing to have others do.

18.2 Willing to Reveal

a) What would you be willing to reveal.

b) What would you be willing to have another reveal.

c) What would you be willing to have others reveal.

18.3 Finding Out

a) What shouldn’t people find out about you

b) Who would it be safe to tell that to

c) What shouldn’t people find out about another

d) Who would it be safe for them to tell that to

18.5 Family

This could be parents, relatives, spouses, children, or even members of a close knit commune that you are a part of. If some specific one of these is especially charged up (continually fighting with the wife or a parent or whatever), then use it in place of family and run that first before running family in general.

18.7 Society

18.9 Other Areas

Areas where you are having trouble and difficulties often include harmful acts, inhibited actions, and withheld secrets.

So if there is a particular kind of person or thing or area that is giving you real difficulty, fill it in the blanks and run this set of processes against it.

You can also run this on other general areas such as lifeforms or possessions or spirits or religion or even (for the advanced student or on a second pass) on creation and destruction.

18.11 Forgiveness of Past Existence

Of course you might have run some past life material on the above processes. It was neither encouraged nor discouraged.

But here we are interested in things that are out of your conscious recall but perhaps sitting in the background just out of sight.

We have all existed for a long long time and have done just about everything good and bad. Most of it is buried out of sight even on people who remember many of their past lives.

The key to really blowing this apart is forgiveness, for in forgiving others you forgive yourself as well.

Here we are not limiting the question to things that you remember doing or even to things that you actually did. Imagination and speculation are quite valid here and you might even need to say something that you really never did do just to get it off of your plate.

This is the big one and you should push it to a major feeling of relief and freedom.

a) What terrible thing might you have done

b) Imagine being forgiven for that

c) What terrible thing might another or others have done to you

d) Decide (as best you can) that you forgive them for that

e) What terrible thing might another have done to another or others

f) Imagine that their victims have forgiven them for that

If you work over every horrible thing you have heard of or can dream up, you might be able to reach a Christ-like state of total forgiveness. But that might be too much to expect on a first pass, in which case it can be left for a second run through this book.
