In the world of the Europeans the inability to concentrate at will is a cause for daily misgivings. The more so because it is a skill virtually innate to other races, especially those from south and south-east Asia.
On the face of it, the statement is basically true. But dig deeper and we find that the comparison is not on a like-for-like basis. Concentrating at will is not the constant in this equation, nor is it the ideal.
Let me explain: a wiring loom in a car comprises a copper wire in a plastic sheath. Yet the quality and flexibility of the copper and those of its plastic covering have a massive impact on the superiority of the electrical current passing through it for end use. In expensive cars, the loom is far better in quality than that found in cheaper cars.
The internal mechanism of humans, animals and plants etc., is similarly designed. Races differ in their physical ability also, and some of that is due to whether they want to follow a subjective or an objective lifestyle. Europeans are objective. Other races are subjective or a combination of the two to a varying degree. Therefore it is a fundamental and erroneous mistake to imagine that the internal wiring of humans is identical. It is not.
Thus, in the matter of concentration leading to contemplation, which in turn opens the portal to meditation and eventual samadhi, this cannot be performed by the European mechanism; while other races are placed in a hierarchy of success in achieving these outcomes.
For example, the elders from our background impressed upon Europeans the need for medical science to deal with the cause and not simply the symptoms of disease. The latter, masquerading medical science as an absolute and unassailable authority ignored this advice and show-cased the scientific revelation that was heart transplantation. Advice on matching donor and recipient characteristics, such as age, gender, social background, race, ethnicity, mental and emotional compatibilities were all heard and ignored.
Subsequently, the Europeans found that putting a woman’s heart into a truck driver’s body resulted in the recovered truck driver taking up knitting as a hobby. This is not a joke; the case is illustrated in medical journals. So it transpires that the elders, with their pre-ancient yet viable knowledge, do have considerable insight lacking among Europeans. The transplant case above may be an extreme example, but it nonetheless works to amplify the fact that a process as simple as that of concentration, contemplation, meditation and samadhi is differential and has to be tackled differently by different races.
The African and aboriginal races automatically surpass the Asians with respect to the quality of their meditation and samadhi. And the Asians will leave the Europeans well behind in the matter. But let’s remember what I stated earlier – we are not comparing like for like. Apples, pineapples, and oranges are all fruit, but that is where their similarity ends.
Or put another way: you can have an identical engine in a car, a boat and a plane but each will function differently, and not at all when they are put to work in each other’s environment.
So, in this post I will try to share what in my opinion is the most beneficial procedure in the concentration-contemplation-meditation-samadhi process for Europeans. A procedure that other races have transcended but from which even they might see better results.
A sequentially-focused mindscape like that of the Europeans is ineffective and analytically moribund if made to function in a random-focused mindscape. To the former, the chameleon-like changeability and adaptability of the latter is baffling and confusing. And in turn both these mindscapes are at a loss when confronted with the free-zone mindscape of African and aboriginal thought.
The most important point to remember is that each mindscape is interdependent – the optimum operational success of one’s native mindscape depends on precisely the optimum operational success of the other mindscapes. Weaken one and the others suffer exponentially.
A prime characteristic of the concentration-to-samadhi process is a sense of loss of time, energy, and effort…for zero results. This is the experience of all the races initially, who then embark on diverging paths according to the tenets of their differential mindscapes and experience wildly differing outcomes.
For the Europeans the outcome is that of accumulation of material wealth and of aspiration towards domination via subjugation of others. The Asiatic races encase themselves in advanced awakening at the cost of materialism. The African and aboriginal races surpass the awakening process and are immersed in the essence of creation and non-creation. Europeans want to subjugate. Asians want selfless, interwoven dignity for all. The African and aborigines seek harmony.
Which is not to say that in the case of Europeans, for example, their focus is wrong. They are of a different mindscape. Only a collective saturated desire to merge into another mindscape form will alter the way in which they undertake, manage and experience the concentration-samadhi process.
So, how can a European master concentration in their present mindscape?
Their first step must be to regain control of their eyes, to understand the deeper role of eyes, their vital importance in one’s ability to enter and then remain in concentration. Eyes are the most important factor in ones ability to enter and then remain in concentration. The European eye is vengeful, hateful and vandalistic; compassionless and glaring; dislocated from peace; with lack of eye contact symbolising a hidden and untrustworthy agenda. The advanced eye, by comparison, is restful.
And it is noteworthy that the eyes soak in more than 90% of negative influences, consequently affecting emotional and logical thought-processes and radically impairing harmonious decision-making. So, Europeans must train the eyes to remain steady and at peace.
Exercise1: Look at a point for more than thirty seconds, blinking as you normally would.
It is surprising how many cannot do this for thirty seconds let alone five minutes. Europeans, now in their third and fourth generation of television-viewing, have become programmed to sustain very low attention and concentration thresholds. And with low concentration levels comes the haemorrhaging of patience levels; to say nothing of the fact that seeping back into their consciousness is a spectrum of very bright fluctuating rays that slowly and unmistakably desensitize and erode the retina, without the body being able to counter the endless feed of this very powerful damaging, razor-sharp beam of unnatural light.
Eyes are designed to receive and emit light out of the body. When the function to emit body-light, almost like exhaling negative carbon dioxide from the body, is stopped then there appears an emotional scar that leads to mental unbalance and results in exaggerated aggressive behaviour.
One of the reasons that you must sleep only at night and in total darkness is to allow the eyes to exhale damaging light from the body during sleep. Though even the effectiveness of this is mitigated by vegetating in your favourite place on the sofa watching television year after year, because of precisely the physical retina damage I alluded to above.
An imbalance in the equilibrium of light intake and exhalation through the eyes, alongside the more physical damage, exponentially obstructs the achievement of positive results in Exercise 1 – impeding European advancement into an Asian-type meditative form. As does the aggressive European mindscape, of which creations such as the television are symptomatic, and represent the antithesis of concentration through which samadhi may eventually be experienced.
Let me make it clear that it is not for me or others to judge the European mindscape, any more than it is for them to judge the Asian, Africa and aboriginal mindscapes in turn. Attributes are given and can be changed only via collective conscious desire for change. What I can do, however, is proffer methods that may help in the endeavour towards inner awakening and knowledge among Europeans.
Let me expand on some of the basic reasons why the majority of people fail to harness the power needed to fulfil Exercise 1.
Body-light is an unknown energy in the West. The body automatically uses the sun or daylight to expedite its internal working mechanism. Light is a tremendous communicator as well as a pathway for communication. However, it is limited by the prescribed rules of physics – some of which, let us be clear, have not yet been quantified by western physicists. Sun-light, cosmic-light, body-light function on an unseen template, resembling a sensitive electronic circuit, but one characterized by an interwoven crisscross design within which the paths remain distinct.
Body-light follows these paths into the bio-system itself. The bio-system produces light-waste energy harmful to its existence and which must be expelled. This can only happen when the ambient external darkness is at a level allowing it to ‘suck’ body-light out of the bio-system. Thus, we are beginning to venture here into the fact that light has pressure. Unseen light has the least pressure, then cosmic-light, then darkness as we understand it, then sun-light. For light-waste to be expelled effectively, the bio-system needs to repose in a totally dark, well ventilated room.
If only things were as simple as that.
Body-light is also needed, amongst other things, to aid metabolism. If you have consumed an anti-meditation and difficultly-digested diet of meat then body-light, even the exhausted and harmful form awaiting expellation from the biosystem, is mobilized in the body’s effort to metabolise the consumed food.
By this process it transforms into poisonous waste material, such that when you eventually come to sleep in the imperative dark room, your meat consumption will hinder the necessary release of the body-light waste. Top your meat diet with alcohol and you are well on your way to a biosystem that functions in a negative zone as a rule. And the biosystem itself becomes negative.
Your body becomes a negative quality and you transmit this negativity to all around you – your children, for example, though you are adamant that you interact with them and wish for them nothing but love, caring and affection. Those words, those sentiments of affection, are cloaked in your biosystem poison. Scary, isn’t it?
Okay, so let’s say that in addition to a dark and well-ventilated sleeping space you must consume biosystem-friendly food. Assuming you follow this advice, what comes next?
I’ll share more in my next post….
