Peace,

What is your thoughts about listening to brain waves frequencies such as Alpha, Beta, Theta? Do they really work as far as calming, slimming, depression, etc... as claimed on various recording?

On another note, what are your thoughts on subliminal suggestion recordings etc.


Thank you

Question: You talked about how there is no mechanical way to awaken consciousness, but I will recount a story about my friend. He bought one of those machines that sends electric pulses into the brain, and he reported results such as hyper-awareness of his environment, single-pointed concentration, and astral projection--all sorts of things that we often associate with an awakened consciousness. How are we to understand this?

Instructor: Very good question, and I'm glad you asked.

What I stated, or what I attempted to say, is that it is impossible to awaken the consciousness towards the light with those mechanical approaches. Those machines can awaken consciousness, just like drugs can, but they awaken conditioned consciousness.

To go deeper into our explanation of our current state of conditioning, when we sincerely do an inventory of our psyche, we discover that around 97% of our consciousness is trapped, and only a very tiny fraction remains free, unconditioned. That little fraction is our only hope, and we find that symbolized in many teachings, for example, David and Goliath. Goliath represents the conditioned consciousness, the beast, that great warrior that is leading the hordes of egos. That whole battlefield represents the spiritual warfare. And David is that child, and all he has is his faith in God, and his stone, which is the mercury, but it is enough to overcome the giant.

The problem is, humanity is very impressed with big things, like following the crowds, so when humanity approaches spirituality and religion, we always go where the crowds are. And what do the crowds always want? Instant feedback; something for nothing; cheap, free, easy; promises, guarantees. In other words, humanity is lazy, and wants to go to heaven easily. That is impossible.

So these machines, different devices, different sounds, different mantras, different chemicals, different plants, many different techniques that are being utilized nowadays to supposedly awaken consciousness. They do awaken consciousness, but the conditioned consciousness. The experiences that people have--they perceive things, but they have nothing to do with God, nothing to do with Divinity, nothing to do with awakening in the Light. They are illusions that seduce the naive. And those that become hypnotized by those things, and continue to pursue them, become black magicians, or in other words, demons.

These are very common. This planet is hugely populated by what you can call demons, witches, sorcerers--people who are pursuing that way of awakening. Why? Because it is very easy. It is very easy, because 97% of our consciousness is already enmeshed in the underworld, the subconsciousness, the infraconsciousness, what we can call hell.

What is a demon, but anger/lust/envy personified? Those are demonic qualities that we have in abundance. It is easy to awaken the consciousness in those elements--very simple. All you have to do is strengthen them more. Commit certain types of behaviors, certain types of actions, and that consciousness will awaken easily, and you will have all kinds of powers, but as a demon. And this happens.

I was just contacted recently by someone, who had a similar experience: met some people who seemed to be very serious about spirituality; was told "Do A, B, C, and D;" the person did A, B, C, and D; they had all kinds of experiences from it, but fortunately this person still has that 3% free, and listened to it. And that 3% felt terrified, felt remorse, felt "This is wrong." And instead of pursuing the desire, sought help in how to fix it and get out of that problem. Unfortunately, there is already a karma at play. That person has to suffer certain consequences because of that curiosity. But the good thing is they still have enough consciousness not trapped yet that they still felt that sense of "I shouldn't do that. This is wrong. I really shouldn't do that anymore. Let me get out of here." That is what we have to listen to, that sense of right and wrong. That is the free consciousness. That is our guide to lead us back. And if we really use it and constantly listen to it, it gets stronger and stronger, and as we liberate more consciousness from our ego, it gets stronger and stronger.
