An orgasm without having one.

That's because orgasms don't "have" orgasms.

"Having" and "doing" are obsolete in BEING.

"You" ARE "orgasm", in perpetuity.

Via Negativa

Via Negativa is the Way of Negation.

We reveal a "thing" by negating & eliminating all that it is not.

And because the LAST thing we ever negate is Negation itself, the End Result is always POSITIVE.

In the Universal Way, it is the Path of Return and the Road to Liberation, by dis-objectification from all that we are NOT, therefore inevitably leading to the Revelation of who we truly ARE.

In all the Particular Ways, Via Negativa can be used for the most potent Magic. We do not "manifest" a thing, but rather remove, subtract and negate all that the "thing" is not.

We remove, subtract and negate any and all blockages, veils and covers which conceal it, so the "thing" is inevitably revealed by itself, because it was "always there".

Or even more accurately, it was NEVER "not there".

One of the best examples of using Via Negativa in a Particular Way is the story about Michelangelo, who was said to never really "create" a sculpture, but merely remove from the rock everything that was NOT the sculpture, because the sculpture was always enclosed in the rock and only needed to be revealed/unveiled.

People who "work hard" (often with very little to show for) mostly employ the "Via Positiva", which is generally much longer and infinitely more difficult.

They believe that "things" are "created" or "invented", rather than revealed or dis-covered.

Truly extraordinary people, on the other hand, spend much more "time" saying NO, NO, NO and more NO for every YES they eventually (and inevitably) arrive at.

Worth noting: In the Via Negativa, negating is not the same as denying. It's removing, subtracting, eliminating.

Denial is like burying our heads in the sand.

Negating/eliminating is getting rid of the sand to reveal the treasure.

I may be nitpicking psycho-semantically, but still, it's a useful distinction to make.

Via Negativa is NOT the same as Via Struthionis :)

Funny. Reminds me of what I was thinking about recently having dinner with normal people. I think I sound negative (like an ass). Whatever topic discussed I exposed it as trash. But then I understood that this is not my point.

Simplified example: if ”all cops are shit” I could instead say ”if we liberate ourselves and take charge of our of lives we do not need cops”.

What appears as negative is actually a yearning for a positive. I’m going to try and share my views in this way in the future, perhaps more effective.

:p

Abso-Fucking-Lutely.

Many people who achieve a certain level of awesomeness in life (or beyond) are intuitively using the Via Negativa even if they don't think of it consciously or don't necessarily call it so.

Liberation Spell

This Spell was composed by me as an Affidavit (Self-Declaration of Truth and Fact).

It is written in three languages simultaneously: English, Magical and Legalese.
  • Use at your own "risk"!
  • Do NOT use if there is even the slightest shadow of doubt!
  • You have been cautioned!
  • If you choose to share it with others, also share the warnings!
  • You can always download, save and use at a later time, when ready.
Read/download the Spell here: Liberation Spell & Affidavit.

After copying it in your own handwriting and signing it properly, tape it to the inside of a window and directly expose it only to the East/Morning Sun for 14 days, ideally from New Moon to Full Moon. Afterwards, place it in some protective but transparent covering, preferably with a mirror underneath it (the mirror is facing up and therefore facing the back side of the text/paper), and put it in a place where it is daily exposed to the Sun for as long as possible, especially to the Mid-Day Sun.

Great. Haven’t got round to it. But I shall.

Most (if not all) times I required a lawyer's services, I found mistakes and loopholes and had to correct them myself. Sometimes I even had to rewrite the whole thing.

A magickal lawyer - maybe. And the Witness is already the "Notary" in this Spell.

Some of my Daily Practices

1.
Each night, and often also during the day, I consistently practice Lucid Dream Yoga & Sleep Yoga.

2. I usually go to bed early, sometimes even at 7pm-8pm, and almost never too long after Sunset. I wake up every morning before Sunrise (all naturally by now, no "alarm" clock) and walk barefoot outside in the garden, to bathe in the light of the Rising Sun and in the Earth's Field. Also doing various "Letting Go" and "Inner Dissolution" exercises during this exposure.

3. After I'm done with the morning practices and everyone else is still asleep, these are the hours when I'm doing much of my daily "Forum Yoga", mostly to sharpen my skills in communication and linguistic ingress, along with other skills. These are also the hours when I'm generally reading and answering emails and interacting on our "Social Media" page (NOT Facebook or Twitter or the likes of them).

4. After everyone else wakes up, we're all having our gourmet coffee together, usually on the sun terrace.

5. During the day I'm mostly engaged in creative and/or shamanic work. Writing poetry, songs, lyrics, prose, Magical Spells and also once in a while I have clients who require my shamanic assistance. And I no longer read as much as I used to. I could definitely use some more gentle physical exercise (i.e. walking), but I'm still getting used to the steep road slopes around here, as opposed to Berlin, which is flatter than the Earth itself :p

6. Generally once or twice a month, preferably during the New Moon and/or the Full Moon, I operate an Alchemical Process and/or "Harvest" and subsequently follow the results daily, always refining my approach. Usually it's rendering and isolating some more "Earth" and gathering some more "Spirit", in different ways and with different methods, and setting them up to interact. There are also a few more "advanced" operations that I experiment with. I have a few of those going on at the moment and it's fascinating to watch Nature operate in such magical ways. I don't use hotplates or temperature controllers. But we have a compost pile in the garden that always keeps naturally cycling levels of heat/motion induction. I almost never use store-bought materials or chemicals. In this case, I do my best to follow the axiom "everything you need is already in your back yard". And above all, I'm taking it easy. Being too obsessive has never really done me any good, especially as I DO tend to get somewhat OCD at times :eek:

7. I practice what Castaneda refers to as "Controlled Folly". In simple terms, this means ACTING or PRETENDING as if things "matter" and are all "serious" and shit, but KNOWING that ultimately No-Thing "matters".

8. I sunbathe a little every day during UV hours (20-40 minutes), when the weather is not too cold or too cloudy for this. Either in the garden or on our sun terrace or down at the beach. I never use sunscreen, but the morning/Red & IR solar exposure strengthens and prepares the skin (and eventually the eyes as well) for the later mid-day Full Spectrum/UV absorption. I also do my best to spend as much "time" as possible outside (i.e. not indoors), especially as we have an outdoors kitchen and sitting area, in addition to the garden and the front yard.

9. We only eat one meal a day, usually 1-2 hours before Sunset. We all eat together, and only home prepared dinners. 90% (and more in the future) of our veggies and legumes are from our own garden.

10. Before going to bed, I do some Eye & Candle & Mirror exercises. Most of the day I'm in a semi dream-like state anyway. And I never set aside time to "meditate", because I always "meditate".

Sometimes it's hard to stay like that.

If I would stop pursuing things and start floating more I would be very much like you.

I'm way too wired.

Our garden is one of the most valuable things, I love combining alchemy and gardening feeding the plants.

It all became so much easier and naturally flowing for me since we moved to this island in the Atlantic.

What's stopping you?

Oh, that :)

Like that guy said to Neo in the first Matrix movie: Maybe "you need to unplug" :)

Eating food from our own garden is priceless. The best stuff has no labels glued to it :)

It seems to me like a pretty well worded spell. I have read through it twice and I do find it a little wordy so have to take it slow. I have a few basic questions.

If we are to carry out the ritual spell are we to expect the dissolution of all incarnation contracts i.e. liberation? Will we just vanish back into the source of all or is this more of a statement of intent in the case of nearing of zero point-no/end time.

I also wondered about the red plasma ink (is this blood?) to seal the deal.

Does the spell carry more weight/power if more individuals assent to it?

Thanks for putting it out there.

This Spell is intended to augment & complement any other practices with this intent. I doubt it is enough in and of itself.

But it's "legally binding" if it can't be refuted, and it can't. Unless the "No-Man's Land" clause is activated (7th paragraph), and then it's out of the "hands" of the "particular" self.

I also wondered about the red plasma ink (is this blood?) to seal the deal.

Yes, blood. Slightly blood-tinted thumbprint is more than enough.

Does the spell carry more weight/power if more individuals assent to it?

One Witness is enough. Like a co-signatory notary. It can be your spouse or your best friend, etc... Two Witnesses are better (3 signatories altogether). But three Witnesses is already a crowd.

Thanks for putting it out there.

Most welcome.

Preliminary Note: This thread is primarily aimed for those with an active interest in Liberation, and particularly in a context that is tangential and complementary to the genuine Bön/Dzogchen traditions.
____________________________

It is my own deep inner-standing that the purpose for being "trapped" in this Reality-Labyrinth is to find a way to escape it. Like a puzzle or a riddle to solve, in a way.

EVERYTHING else that doesn't assist or lead towards this end is essentially irrelevant and useless, basically a Distraction.

"Sin & Redemption", "Good/Bad" Deeds, "Karma", belief in any "god", religion or "savior" - ALL those are completely irrelevant and part of the Reality Labyrinth Design.

As long as we still have an "account" in the System, we are ALWAYS in debt. This doesn't mean we should start killing and plundering, but it also doesn't mean we shouldn't.

And while the "gods" (including the Judaeo-Christian one/s) are very much "real" within this System Construct, they are ALL just as trapped in here as we are.

This being said, Detached Compassion is a naturally emerging Quality upon such an Illuminating, Satori-Level Realization.

Also, we have to acquire/manifest the optimal (for us) conditions to facilitate this Endeavor. For this, we can use means such as Magick, Dream Practice, etc...

Upon completing a Full Exit, one of three possibilities might occur:

Option 1: Your Exit will be remembered and documented by various traditions and/or researchers.

Option 2: Your entire existence in this Construct will be entirely erased from the System Memory.

Option 3: There will manifest an NPC (Non-Player Character) Replica as a placeholder for your Dissolved/Departed Avatar.

The Exit Mechanism is ultimately quite simple and comparable to a Hand Grenade, once you have successfully navigated to it:
1. Locate the "Safety Pin" that keeps your whole "System Image" ID Construct together.​
(it's very well hidden and can take many lifetimes to find - if at all, with all the deliberately misleading paths, all the dead ends and distractions...)
2. Remove the "Safety Pin" (one may have to access a certain state of consciousness to do so).
3. Let Go (this part may be the most difficult of them all).
_______

Bye Bye.

Your link to Odin blinking out of reality is so relevant and not just for the special effects.
A character with a significant amount of responsibility and good/bad traits. Like many of our myths.
He was finally tired enough to let all the scripts go and not in an uncaring manner but by simply removing himself from that story, the story still exists.

I think I can from a very "human" perspective relate to this idea of detached compassion. I watched a movie called immortals the other day in which Zeus and the limited on screen pantheon cannot help but get involved in the human affairs. They are still "in game mode" even if they hold a loftier vantage point or even understand to a much greater degree how this game even works.

You should add an option four for being(s) who have the capability to exit/liberate and choose not too, perhaps to assist other beings find the steps. (I am pretty sure that this also happens, but my opinion at this point is speculative in nature). I do also see that you specified a Full Exit so I am wondering if you have any thoughts on a partial-exit?

*I Just realized that I am basically just elucidating on the Exit Mechanism point #3. Letting go and its difficulty. Came to this thread for something else but here we are!

It seems to me that our life progresses in one of such ways

1. Pressures can build, increasing the overall friction, drying us out and beating us down until we crack or expire. (most have this fate)

2. Life progression under the right state(s) can create "a diamond in the rough, capable of becoming a sort of rock of refuge within the pressure cooker.

3. Or life can serve to teach the being to see the realm and navigate the challenges until we finally figure out how to detach oneself leading to the possibility of liberation and/or the acquiring of high-ward acquired coping skills. (knowledge/wisdom)

I believe Kibric has some very compelling posts that show the difficulty that we can have with letting go. (What is the point without Love? Each other?)

Sorry the exact posting and thread is not here at the moment but i think the regulars will know which I am speaking of. He was sharing his realization about the meaning of life. That it is pointless without these qualities and experiences. Living alone is not all it is cracked up to be.

This also could lead one to wanting the liberate, the knowledge of the highs and lows of human existence, eventually you may just want the song to end. But most will change tracks instead.

Hope you all are doing well,

Cheers

A "partial" Exit almost always leads to full re-immersion. No middle ground in this, to the best of my understanding. One can have "glimpses", but as long as we are still "in here", we can only think we're "liberated" in certain areas, which would count as "horizontal" liberation for me.

I.e.: Financial "liberation", political "liberation", personal liberation from certain internal/mental/emotional blockages and system programs, or the movements for black liberation, women's liberation, gay liberation, etc. - these movements are all very good and legit (at least until they get corporate hijacked), but they are not the "Liberation" that I'm speaking of here, although the horizontal aspects of liberation can serve as a great support and "launch pad" for the "vertical" Exit Path.

Also, sharing the wisdom we're gaining on the path is almost inevitably intertwined with walking this Path. We should ideally learn from those who are not yet fully accomplished, because once they're gone, we're only left with an egregore at best.

I believe Kibric has some very compelling posts that show the difficulty that we can have with letting go. (What is the point without Love? Each other?)

That it is pointless without these qualities and experiences. Living alone is not all it is cracked up to be. But most will change tracks instead.

Most who achieve certain aspects of "horizontal" liberation can basically become much better "players" inside this reality construct. Going "Vertical" requires a whole different "level" of Letting Go.

Also, we are always loved, and never ever alone. Regardless whether the "programs" tell us otherwise.

Hope you all are doing well,

Cheers

Fairly well, all things considered.

Slàinte!

PS: Additionally & somewhat on this topic, this is a song of mine, recorded in Toronto (Canada) in the Spring of 2003, almost 20 years ago:

My 10 General Liberation Guidelines

1. Drop ALL aspects of any savior program. Don't expect a savior, and don't become one yourself.

2. Eliminate ALL aspects of worship. Do not worship anyone or anything. Don't be anyone's "devotee". A Liberated Being worships NO ONE, especially not itself.

3. Keep your energy to yourself, or share/exchange it only in mutually beneficial and consensual activities. Otherwise, your life-force will be fed forward, and not to you. Don't feed any egregores, belief systems, toxic narratives or polarizing opinions. Don't debate, don't argue, don't try to be "right" - instead, just walk away. Do not feed/fuel conflicts! But always be ready to "catch yourself unprepared", performing Random Acts of Kindness!

4. Avoid going through so-called "proper channels" as much as possible. The "proper channels" are non-native (artificial) constructs that will only bury you deeper in the System. Instead, think and act like a "Reality Hacker", i.e. find and use the already built-in loopholes and back-doors. Most (if not all) "Reality Hacks" are completely "legal".

5. Practice Via Negativa, gradually eliminating all that you are not, to ultimately uncover who you actually are.

6. Avoid making demands, acting entitled, making claims or submitting petitions. All these will contractually bind you to some sort of "authority", one way or another. Use Affidavits instead, both legally and magically (Affidavits are essentially Self-Declarations of Truth and Facts). If so inclined, use a Magical Affidavit to declare all your binding contracts null and void.

7. Realize that the vast majority of people are only capable of thinking/talking about themselves. There are exceptions, but they are rare. Ergo, whenever someone expresses a view or opinion about you, they're most likely talking about themselves, and it has close to nothing to do with who you are - it's just their projections. Conversely, avoid projecting any views/opinions about others, and do your best to "know yourself" directly, without needing to resort to the distorting reflections or projections of "others".

8. Realize that nothing has any inherent meaning whatsoever. While seemingly a terrifying concept, it is actually a very liberating one. It UN-plugs you from any preconceived notions and it is part of your pathway to de-facto accessing Free Will. Develop a piercing intellect, capable of seeing clearly through the illusions of form and perception. The greatest mystics are also people of great intellect.

9. To the best of your ability, start blurring the lines between the "sleeping state" and the "waking state". Those lines are imaginary and are keeping you in a compartmentalized state.

10. Practice Peripheral Vision, during daytime activities AND while falling asleep (it enhances Lucid Dreaming), but avoid "affirmations" or "visualizations". Any "visions" should occur spontaneously, not from memory. Engage your entire field of attention, relax the center and increasingly expand to the periphery. When your main focus is at 90 Degrees, congratulations, you have achieved Second Attention. And when/if you manage to extend your vision/attention field to Full Circle, you will be able to actually see around/behind objects or situations. And when you eventually reach 3rd Attention (or 180 Degrees), you will be literally able to look back at yourself and "know yourself" directly. By the time this state is achieved, you will likely already be mostly "Out-of-Phase" from this Reality Construct, therefore enabling you to dissolve, cancel out or short-circuit any remaining Ties, Anchors, Programs or System Implants.

About your point number 10, regarding the 180 degree sight, second attention and going out of phase with this reality I was wondering why at second attention we are able to see things, emanating per say from ourselves and surroundings which are not present in narrow sight or normal attention (feels like a partway out of phase state for me, still here but seeing through)also the short circuiting and deactivating of implants, programs ties, anchors etc I was wondering if these could also be affected by prolonged fasting and “going inside” or refocusing our attention away from our “lives” going into the wilderness so to speak. Making our daily existence less full of distractions so that we can know ourselves better? I feel that your suggestions are very good ones and the first 9 are important to work towards if one is to really utilize the 10th. All have utility Imo and I like your suggestions over all. Thanks for sharing. I.n.r.i and vitriol come to mind for some reason.. still grasping.

Peripheral vision is a most excellent practice. It eventually leads to greatly improved 2nd Attention because it greatly enhances Hemispheric Synchronization, more than any Hemisync binaurals, for example.

When/if we finally reach 3rd Attention, there is no longer a need for such a synchronization, because there are no longer separate "hemispheres" to synchronize.

And IMO, also yes to all the other stuff you wrote. I don't do prolonged fasts, I only do OMAD, so I don't know. But it's already an improvement. And I moved to a house in a small and quiet village on an island in the Atlantic. However, no matter how much we remove ourselves from external distractions, it's the internal ones that are blocking us the most.

Thank you. Approaching the precipice feels like a tugging between two strong ropes; but one is ultimately stronger. That depends on which one we have maintained the best. Eventually we will have to make a choice to let go of one of them lest we be ripped apart. Just came to mind and thought to share in case anyone gets it.

The Moths and the Flame

Moths gathered in a fluttering throng one night
To learn the truth about the candle light,
And they decided one of them should go
To gather news of the elusive glow.

One flew till in the distance he discerned
A palace window where a candle burned --
And went no nearer: back again he flew
To tell the others what he thought he knew.
The mentor of the moths dismissed his claim,
Remarking: "He knows nothing of the flame."

A moth more eager than the one before
Set out and passed beyond the palace door.
He hovered in the aura of the fire,
A trembling blur of timorous desire,
Then headed back to say how far he'd been,
And how much he had undergone and seen.
The mentor said: "You do not bear the signs
Of one who's fathomed how the candle shines."


Another moth flew out -- his dizzy flight
Turned to an ardent wooing of the light;
He dipped and soared, and in his frenzied trance
Both self and fire were mingled by his dance --
The flame engulfed his wing-tips, body, head,
His being glowed a fierce translucent red;

And when the mentor saw that sudden blaze,
The moth's form lost within the glowing rays,
He said: "He knows, he knows the truth we seek,
That hidden truth of which we cannot speak."


To go beyond all knowledge is to find
That comprehension which eludes the mind,
And you can never gain the longed-for goal
Until you first out-soar both flesh and soul;
But should one part remain, a single hair
Will drag you back and plunge you in despair --
No creature's self can be admitted here,
Where all identity must disappear.

Hi Mr. Andro

When you obtain this Liberation, if you don't go to the Light, where will you go to ?

Every Reality Construct has a "backdoor". A sort of In-Between.

Not yet Liberated, but no longer bound by the Construct, either.

That's where we can locate the Exit.

It has been explained to me that if we raise the frequency of our Quintessential
Essence and the power of this essence (this is where Alchemy is required), we can
then translocate in time / space or even out of time / space.

Every cell of our body vibrates at the same frequency as our Quintessence and
this is how some masters are able to bodily trancend / translocate.

This may well be viewed as a back door.
