What upsets and seems to threaten the state of Perfect Primordial Calmness, is not really present. It is not there, here, or anywhere. What I see then is a distorted subconscious, subjective mind fragment that is intruding upon Radical Right Perception of True Reality consisting of Eternal Spirit, Energy, and Cosmic Causal Thought. What I see is just a mirage in the desert my private mind made, a massive hallucination and egoic mind projection out onto the movie screen, the world of multiplicity, called Prakriti or “Mother” Nature. The emotionally charged distortions are part of a reactive process, a programmed response to what my ego thinks is going to cause pain, suffering, and annihilation of it.
This statement of defined clarity or clear seeing in Radical Right Perception of the misinterpreting nature of the ego is to be applied in the same manner as in Lesson 5. Use the above idea with any people, objects, or unfolding events that you “believe” has disturbed the state of Perfect Primordial Calmness, the experience of perceived psychological pain. Cut through delusion with the knife of discernment by stating the form and subject of your upset very concisely. For example:
“I feel inferior to ________________, because I see something in him/her that is not really present at all. I have projected unto him/her a distorted egoic mind fragment, a false belief that has no existence or basis in True Eternal Reality at all.”
“I am afraid of ______________ because I see and perceive something in them that I think can threaten my True Identity, which is the Essence of Christ/Buddha/Krishna Consciousness/Light Presence, but the distortion behind it is such that, my diabolical ego mind believes it can be annihilated and hurt by what is not there. In Reality, I cannot be hurt, assailed, or annihilated.
Apply the concept for today to anything that seems to disturb or upset you throughout the day. Before each practice period, scan the separative mind and uncover any lingering upsetting thoughts.
If you try to avoid applying the delusion remover to certain disturbing thoughts, tell yourself that:
“All upsets and disturbances threaten my Perfect Primordial Calmness with equal measure. But they are the result of gross misinterpretation by my ego mind.”
NOTE: The world and the forms in it are neutral. Our ego mind, the false self, projects the distortions onto the wilderness desert we think is outside of us.
