Awakening is the most horrible experience a human being can ever be subjected to.
It is not by chance that one falls into the trap of meditation. Meditation is one part, one organ, possibly the vanguard, of a perceptual paradigm that is slowly taking over the human mind by neutralizing the one that we are currently infected by.
These nasty guru types, wondering around the world looking for victims, are people who have entered this new perceptual paradigm – or allowed it to enter them – and who are its hosts. They inveigle innocent people into engaging in meditation. They may present as counselors, psychotherpists, new age spiritual leaders and guides or whatever but their objective is to get one started on meditation.
Once meditation sets in it begins to neutralize the programs running and still the mind thereby inducing a sense of serenity and calmness and increasing mental clarity and focus of attention. This leads to the horrible realization that everything one thought was great fun is actually some meaningless activity. Worse, one cannot continue to engage in these activities once this realization dawns.
The guru type grabs this realization and uses it as the foundation for the launching of an expansionary impetus that leaves one with a totally reconfigured mind that is a zillion times larger than what it was and which realizes all sorts of things that cannot be spoken about for fear of being mistaken for a mad person. When gurujee learns that this has happened he grins broadly, gleefully claps his fat hands and proceeds to teach one “the great work with energy”.
This great work with energy takes the cake. It increases ones neural connectivity leading to a horrifying journey out of the perceptual paradigm that we have been born into and into another one that is emerging within human consciousness – or into which human consciousness is being pulled.
Now one is in real trouble. One needs more and more neural connectivity to sustain this new way of seeing the world. One needs more and more brains to connect with. The more connectivity one has, the more one sees and one wants to see more and more. The search is now on for more and more of these people who like oneself have entered this emergent perceptual paradigm. What horrible people they are, but one needs to connect with their brains in order to increase neural connectivity. What has happened to the good, neat church going me? I have turned into some kind of vampire – searching for brains!
Then one realizes that ones physical infrastructure is not conducive to linking up with more than a few brains. Juggling about a dozen takes a different kind of architecture and a different kind of living space. So now one cannot live at home. Where do I live? In a graveyard? Thanks to meditation. Now I have to take on the task of designing a new architecture. What about the finances? Great, now I have to slave, to borrow and to beg to find the resources. What has happened to my sense of self respect, my dignity, my sense of shame?
One also want to join other people and jointly work towards bringing the world into alignment with what one sees. One begins to search for others who are able to see what one sees. Yes there are a few. But not enough for the great task ahead.
So like Gurujee one sets out to awaken more and more. That’s done it. I have become one of them. How carefully I stalk my prey. How strategically I use my siddhik powers to lure my prey. A hunter of human brains. A fisher of men?
As more and more awaken one also realizes that one relates to these awakened people in very different ways from the prescribed roles available in our civilizational context. These are not parents, not spouses, not siblings, not children, not companions, not colleagues and most of all not friends. What are they? Disciples? Apprentices? Brain-hunters in the making? Fishers of men in training?
Look back. How simple life was with ones spouse, parents, siblings, children and oh!, all those chattering, running-around friends and the TV and the boozy parties that centered around stories of nostalgic recall that were played again and again. Grab Gurujee by the neck – you rogue, you thief, you have stolen my life, what have you done to me? What have you turned me into? What kind of monster have I become? Let me go! I want to go back.
Alas he says, I do not know the way back either. If you can find it please show me how to get back too. I look deep into his eyes determined to see fear in them as I kill him. Instead I see a compassion that begins to grow within me too. I realize that like me he is lost too in this massive and miraculous happening of which we are a part and which we cannot let go of or get out of.
Still want to meditate? What’s driving you? Has the emergent perceptual paradigm infected you too? Do not worry, we will come up with a vaccine and an antidote soon. Till then the best we can do is link you up in a great network and keep you engaged and entertained – a sort of quarantine – in order to try and stop it spreading, while we come up with the vaccine and antidote.
