Awakening The Atrophied Eye - DAY TEN


Okay, I have some good news, and I have some bad news.

The good news is that I’ve conquered my problem revealed in the Day Nine post.   I was distracted by mentally writing these blogs while I was supposed to be meditating, messing up the whole experiment.  This blog has been tremendous fun and proved to be a great way for me to stick to this thing, but the fun of journaling the experience was beginning to overwhelm the point of the experiment itself.  So I had to pull back from it until I could figure out how to get that part under control.  I let it go for a few days, and then started up again to reboot my mental battery.  The good news is that the eye trick… quickly glancing down to the left and then promptly focusing back on the fovea spot… works like a charm.  I now treat all such stray thoughts and daydreaming as if they are threshold visions, and the trick immediately snaps my concentration to heel.  It’s easy as pie.  Good news, right?

The bad news is that the eye trick works on the daydreaming distractions every bit as effectively as it works on the threshold visions.  

Or potential bad news.  In the beginning of this, I only took the pyramid texts’ instruction in their most literal sense when it warned about allowing illusions to distract me from my goal of opening the mystic Third Eye, and it didn’t occur to me that other distractions from even within my own normal, day-to-day thoughts could be considered in this group.  Of my nine previous posts journaling my meditation attempts, at LEAST half of them featured me writing the next exciting episode while I was doing it.  Have I already pissed off my immortal half and alienated it to the point of refusing to open the Third Eye for me?

I have no idea.

But I know how I can find out.  If I manage to get to the event horizon… the pure, inky black stage (as described by Clesson H. Harvey and others) that I will see just before the Wisdom Eye opens… and end up staying right there for the next 50+ years or whatever of meditation sessions, then I will know that I messed this whole thing up royally before I even got started.  My bad.  But I don’t know at this point if that is the case or not.  Perhaps it’ll forgive me as long as I don’t do it again.  We’ll see.  All I can do is put in the time.

I’ve meditated three times now since last I talked to you.  Each time I stayed focused and clear-headed by not writing a blog or anything else by doing the eye trick.  Just as diligent as I am when the threshold visions appear, I treat any such mind wanderings during the meditation as enemies as well.   The hour is peaceful, and in all three times I’ve achieved the Stage One state of the swirly blue nebula thingy.  As far as I know, all is well.

Now we're back on track.  See you later for Day Eleven.
