Realm Before Gesture

There is a realm before gesture, where you can be aware of yourself "calculating" your next move, like while playing a board game. "Should I attack my opponent? Or should I try to improve the organization of my own pieces?" you may find yourself asking yourself. "Should I quit the game? Should I see what other people around us watching this game are doing?" These are the types of questions and internal calculations one makes in the realm before gesture. In real life, the options are more complex, because you can try to help the other guy, not just try to beat him (or her) as in a boad game.

So then, you make your move, you do your gesture, then wait for the opponent to make his or her move. While your opponent is thinking, you can watch and look for clues about how he or she is moving in their realm before gesture. Then your opponent moves, and you again enter your calculating realm before gesture.

The idea "ream before gesture" comes from Stuart Heller 6th Dan.

Life is at Most 1/3 Pleasure

The Buddha is attributed to have said "Life is (completely) Suffering." Most people, including myself, have some disagreement that life's moments are completely moments of suffering.

Pleasurable moments are pure moments, and pure moments on the clock are when a hand points in a pure direction: up (12), right (3), down (6), or left (9). Since there are 12 numbers, and 4 are pleasurable, life has 4/12=1/3 pleasurable moments.

If you use smaller increments of time, there are more than 12 time locations per hand, so life is at most 1/3 pleasurable.

Of course, pleasure isn't the only pure feeling, so 1/3 is much greater than the amount of pleasurable moments.

A Meditation is a Short Inner Journey

Meditative Travelling using the Mind Body Tool App Maps

Once you know the inner locations of the Chakras, Sensations, Emotions, and Neurotransmitters as described in the Guided Journies from the Mind Body Tool, you can easily move from state to state during your meditation sessions with yourself.

The idea is to notice what Chakra or Sensation or Emotion you are in right now -- and then slide your awareness up, down, forward, back, left, or right -- and you know what state to expect because you have seen it on the map and felt it there before.

Once you practice this with yourself, you can slide your awareness from state to state when you are with other people, and see how those around you resonate or respond when you hit those meditative states in yourself.

"Feel Your Source Vibration" ?

What is means to feel is clear, pretty much, but what is "your source vibration?" Well, a vibration is a little back-and-forth movement in place, which could travel somewhere, but it doesn't have to.

When you calm down, perhaps closing your eyes and breathing deeply a few times, you put your mind on a part of your body, and you can feel a vibration there. When you can easily move your awareness anywhere in your body and feel it vibrate, this is what I mean by "your source vibration."

There's a website that can send you daily emails about how to act from your source vibration, and it is Abraham-Hicks Source Vibration and How It Relates to the Law of Attraction.

Tea, Coffee, Beer, Wine, Sex, Rock-n-Roll, Mediation, Yoga, Tai Chi are all concerned with feeling this Source Vibration. There are many negatives and negative connotations to all the aforementioned disciplines, but the positive side is feeling your source vibration. It's like a baby in the womb feeling it's mother's heartbeat. You get useful information about the world when you tune in, and words don't work when you feel it.

The following app has a mode, called "Feel Your Source Vibration," which helps you tune in:

You Can't Make Money, You Can Only Lose Money

If money represents energy, then the laws of physics apply. In physics, energy cannot be created or destroyed. It only changes forms. Also, in all macroscopic energy changes, you lose some of the usable energy with each change: like when you boil water, you can't reuse all of the heat lost as steam. So you cannot make money. You can only lose money.

My Apologies

I am trying to be simple, to over-simplify very complex ideas and situations, because of a feeling of lack of time and desire to understand. I don't think I "know everything." I am making wild attempts at putting together pieces of a large puzzle.

What is Common to All People? (My Guess)

All people have an insatiable desire for growth and comfort: physically, mentally, and spiritually.

The Gist of Major Religions

Moses is the central figure of the Old Testament (Torah), Jesus of the New Testament, and Mohammed of the Koran.

For some reason, adherents to each of these faiths cannot agree upon what God really said or meant.

However, he point of Judaism seems to me to be to follow God's Commandments as Written in the Bible (Torah). The point of Christianity seems to me to be to Love Your Neighbor as Yourself. The point of Islam seems to me to be to prepare for the Awesome Final Hour When All Are Judged by Allah (God).

The point of Hinduism seems to me to be to feel Your Self as the Spirit of the Universe. The point of Buddhism seems to me to be to Disengage from Suffering, Evaporate, and Never Come Back Again (Reincarnate).

I am an ignorant simpleton; forgive me if I have offended anyone.

First Three Propositions in Euclid's Elements

Euclid's Elements is the second most popular book in history. The Bible is first. Euclid's elements are the basis of science and engineering, the beginnings of our modern understanding of space and time. EVERYONE can agree that what Euclid said was reasonable given his definitions, postulates, and common notions.

Body Postures for Falling and Rising Emotionally

I am not an expert at anything.

However, when you RAISE your arms in victory or joy, you are preparing the body-mind-spirit to go DOWN, because that is the direction remaining. When you LOWER YOURSELF by bowing or supplicating yourself on the ground, you are preparing the body-mind-spirit to go UP, because that is the direction remaining.

Rebalance App (also called Rebalance My Energies App)

The Rebalance App is also called Rebalance My Energies. It is a form of Energy Healing through simple movements. It was written by Kevin Wacknov, student of Tai Chi Master Anthony Wong.

This method uses hands as momentum vectors to lower the activation energy for changing emotional-behavioral spaces in the originally balanced individual human experience spheroid.

The spaces model is based upon the TCM Water-Wood-Fire-Earth-Metal 5 elements with the addition of the 5 Social You-Me-World-God-Space elements, for a total of 10 Major Experience Elements.

These 10 Major Experience Elements can be motioned to by the left hand, the right hand, or both hands for a total of 30 postures.

When using the app the elements are chosen semi-randomly with the same kind of cosmic choosing that I Ching coin tossing is based on. This video gives you a feel of the state transitions you can experience by using the app.

Of course, it seems like bullshit at first, but once you calm down from Standard American Consciousness and Anger several orders of magnitude, you can clearly feel the state transitions within yourself and accept the healing they provide.

Ten States Hand Gestures

This is an easy way to remember and "get into" 10 distinct states of consciousness without drugs or alcohol.

Human Evolution in 3 Pictures

In a very short cosmic time, humans have 1) been inspired by fire, 2) learned math and physics, 3) build the modern world infrastructure.

Animals' Responses to Intrusion

When animals sense that their territory is being invaded or intruded upon, they have five different responses:

  1. Response Option A: I will do my little routine that is called for, and stop when the pressure stops.
  2. Response Option B: I'll stiffen up and not let the intruder past my boundary.
  3. Response Option C: I'll get out of the way by leaving the area.
  4. Response Option D: I will meet the visitor half-way and engage in the same activity he or she is presenting to me.
  5. Response Option E: I will relax into the simplicity of awareness, eventually returning to what I was doing.

The Basic Movement Options

You can shift a physical ball up, down, back, front, left, and right (3 or 6 options), and rotate it in the three great circles both directions (3 or 6 more options).

You can shift your awareness energy toward or away from a place (3 or 6 options) or rotate it in circular paths through body quadrants (many options which approach the 12 Chinese Medicine meridians, or the barrel hoops along cylindrical vertical body axis.

You can move your awareness energy around the room or outside you from one elemental ring to the next, ...

You can go within to the sounds the organs and bones make when your awareness energy passes through them...

You can move your awareness into the black space behind you which becomes the dream space...

You can move your awareness energy down below your feet which becomes your "unconscious underwear" and possibly connects to God or The Sage...

You can move your awareness up above your head to disappear into Heaven or Crown Chakra Land or something...

Or you can interrelate with another person and experience all of those things...

So I guess one should practice all the movement options each practice session, right?

Awareness of Awareness the "Solution" to the Collapsing Ecosystem Problem?

Life has many elements, or components, but the strongest of these is "fire," "desire," or "burning." You know, you consume more raw materials from the earth than products or services you give back.

I have known many spiritual people and technical people and no one has had an answer to "how do people keep from destroying everything on the surface of the planet?"

So, what can a concerned person do? Be aware of being aware. It is still a "fiery" state, being aware of your body burning calories to maintain awareness. But it has an innocence to it and removes some guilt for being the aggressive people we all are.

There are many methods for clinging onto states of "being aware of being aware," and basically you just hop from one to the other.

A good one that does not require a lot of repetition of internal slogans and mantras is the body scan from the Mind Body Awareness Tool. You scan your body up and down in a matter of seconds or a minute per sweep. It's like the slow part-by-part insight practices but sped up to more normal consciousness speeds.

Methods for Self Improvement

Affirmations are important and Kevin's favorite way of doing it is to use the Voice Affirmations app or the Affirmations Timer app and repeat an affirmation every minute for an hour during normal activities or while going to sleep.
