Awakening the Atrophied Eye - DAY FIVE


It has been awhile since I’ve been on Clesson H. Harvey’s pyramidtexts.com website.  Mostly because I had already taken extensive notes from his essay and FAQ, and I own his book The Short Path.  Plus I noticed that he had long ago stopped updating it.  I knew he was really old, and I was afraid he couldn’t update it anymore because he, you know, forgot that he had it or whatever.

But now I see that he’s published a new book! Opening the Door to Immortality seems like a great read, and from the description it looks like this is the one.  Apparently he stopped updating the Utterance translations on his site because he decided to put the rest of that content into this, the comprehensive explanation of all his research.  Sweet!  I ordered it.  Can’t wait to read it.
  
Alright, I’m back.  I got me enough sleep.  I didn’t bother to set my alarm as usual because I got up at 5:28am and my old USA cell alarm is already set to get me up at 6:00am to get ready for work.  So this was my first session where I didn’t stop meditating prematurely before the alarm went off.

The morning prayer is at 4:12am right now, and when I lied down I didn’t fall back to sleep, so I was still in my purity state.  

Pillow.  Closet.  Sit.  Close door partially.  Recite ‘sah.’  Focus on fovea spot.

Light was coming through the opening in the closet door, but from the angle of that window, there was shadow right in front of me which kept me from seeing any detail in the wall.  As long as I focused on the fovea nothing from my peripheral distracted me so it was all good.

I guess the novelty of the whole experiment has worn off, because it didn’t take long at all to find that state of super peace.  I coasted there the whole time.  VERY pleasant.  Very few of the threshold visions made their appearance, and all in the very beginning.  I noticed those swirly-dos moving around at some point, but they stayed very faint and in the background… like they were behind a veil of some kind that caused them to be very faint and grayish instead of that glowing blue color.  They never got stronger than that and faded away after a bit.  I enjoyed the serenity feeling of the whole session though…

…and then the alarm went off.  Time to make the donuts.  See you later for Day Six.
