These are notes I made prior to putting together my collection, Exit From The Matrix:
A person tends to “gather up his own life” and construct its boundaries and possibilities in his own mind.
It’s like taking a snapshot of life and pinning it to the wall and saying: THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE IS. IT COULDN’T BE ANYTHING ELSE.
And when he does that, he builds a thought-form that tells him where he can go and what he can do and where he won’t go and what he won’t do.
I once had a client who was very enthusiastic about our work. In each session, he would come across new ideas and resolve to put them into action. However, he never did put even one idea into action. It was as if these new possibilities were bouncing off something already set in his mind. And that something was, literally, a thought-form he had built years earlier, for the purpose of defining his life.
This thought-form operated as a barrier. It repelled anything new.
In this sense, a person can have his own private status quo. No matter what he does, no matter what he says, things will remain the same.
You can call the thought-form a mask, a wall, a fortress-you can call it anything you want to. But it doesn’t budge. If a piece of it comes loose, it is rebuilt quickly. Workers show up with remarkable speed and re-set the bricks.
But then problems develop. All sorts of problems. Physical, relationship, emotional, spiritual…
Why? Because if your life stays the same, at some point it doesn’t work.
Which then means you will become preoccupied with solving problems. And that equals endless distractions.
If you want to see this, as an analogy, played out on a group scale, look at the so-called the US National Security State. All its branches, its procedures, its protections, its research programs, its surveillance, its intrusions, its spies, its need for empire building, and so forth and so on. Problems? They never end. Solutions? They never end.
Well, this is what happens to a person’s life. As a result of keeping that thought-form in place, that configuration that defines his life, the person will experience many problems. And those problems will require solutions…and on and on it goes. He will keep bringing more and more elaborate solutions on board, until finally his life looks like a problem-solving machine that can’t quite keep up.
Into this, all of this, drop a liquid called imagination.
And the work then involves bringing the person on to a new plateau where solving problems isn’t the prime directive.
Instead, a new shining direction is chosen, in which imagination and power play the central role.
Of course, the old thought-form is still there.
But if the person can do imagination exercises (in the “imagination gym”)? These exercises acquaint him with using energies he’s never used before.
And in that process, he begins to realize HE HAS MORE ENERGY THAN HE NEEDS TO LIVE HIS OLD LIFE.
HE HAS MORE ENERGY THAN HE NEEDS TO MAINTAIN HIS STATUS QUO.
HE HAS MORE ENERGY THAN HE NEEDS TO RUN HIS PROBLEM-SOLVING MACHINE.
HE HAS EXCESS ENERGY. LOTS AND LOTS OF IT.
THIS is how life changes.
A person realizes he has more energy than he thought he had.
In order to keep bowing at the feet of his thought-form, the thing that tells him what to do and what not to do, the thing that hems him in, he needs to expend a certain amount of energy.
Staying the same requires a “steady maintenance dose” of energy. And the person intuitively knows this.
He believes he’s living a zero-sum game. He puts just enough energy into maintaining that thought-form to keep everything the same. And then he gets? His life as it is.
SO HE CONCLUDES THE AMOUNT OF MAINTENANCE ENERGY HE HAS ON HAND IS ALL THE ENERGY HE’LL EVER HAVE.
But suppose one day he shows up with 100 tons of new energy?
This is new, this is different.
Because ENERGY IS THE THING THAT WILL CONVINCE A PERSON HE CAN LIVE A NEW LIFE.
If he has an abundance of energy, he’ll offload that thought-form that’s been holding him a straitjacket.
Because he sees he can go farther than the thought-form can take him. He has the energy to do it.
Energy is the proof.
That’s what, subconsciously, he’s been waiting for and hoping for.
Finding new energy is like finding a gold mine.
Until that happens, people with a tight, restraining thought-form will keep bouncing new possibilities into the air and walking away and letting those great new ideas fall on the ground.
Energy is the key.
There are ways to restore it and expand it.
Fuel (energy) was the key to the great leap forward in technology, and it’s the missing piece in the leap forward in life.
