"The war of man against man's malice..."
~ Reverend William Foos
Pick a color, any color! Make it a simple color like red, blue, yellow, or green. Throughout your day, notice this color in all its variations, wherever and whenever it appears.|
About a year after I started this Gnostic path, Jay and I were standing outside in front of the company Rich (a student) and his partners owned. Jay and I both worked there, as well as several other Gnostic students. I was upset about some of the insignificant things happening in the back room where I worked. Jay asked me to look at my sadness and tell him how sad I was. When I told him, he asked me to look again and recognize that I was measuring it against something. He explained that in order for me to recognize my sadness I had to have happiness arising at the same time, in equal proportions, with the same intensity; otherwise I could not say how sad I was. As we continued this conversation he gave me the practice of looking at not only what was arising but for the opposite that was arising at the same time - the measuring stick. Further, he instructed me to look for what it is that recognizes both things.|
This month for the Do It Yourself practice, look at whatever emotion arises, and with what intensity. Then look at what you are measuring it against. Then look again to see what it is that allows you to recognize both things.
After doing this practice repeatedly I discovered that it is one of the most powerful practices that I have been given for taking apart duality.
