HOW AND WHY THE UNIVERSAL CLEARING PROCESS WORKS
by Konchok Penday

The Universal Clearing Process [UCP] is an extremely simple and very
powerful emotional-mental-spiritual CLEARING process that can be done by
almost anyone, with little training or experience.  "Clearing" could be
pragmatically defined as raising awareness and ability.

UCP [also known as "Personality Integration"] is so deceptively simple that
people often dismiss it out of hand because they incorrectly think
something must be complex to be powerful and effective.  In fact, just the
opposite is true.  The more complex a methodology or process is, the more
limited and narrow it becomes, the less utility it has, and the faster you
need to throw it away and find another process that still has "bite" or
effectiveness to it.

AS-IS-NESS [the seeing of something exactly AS it IS, in itself, without
any additions, filters,  alterations or denials] is the basic curative
process.  Every discharge or trauma reduction process is merely a way of
getting the Seeker to "as-is" something.  In this sense, there is only one
basic therapeutic process.  The more the process you are using limits what
the Seeker can look at, the more limited your process, and the faster you
must find a new one.

UCP appears to be the basic meta-process or underlying foundation of ALL
workable therapy or self-improvement.  I am well aware that's a HUGE claim.
TRY UCP AND SEE!
 

THE CIRCLE OF NOW

UCP is a process that starts in present time, circles repeatedly around the
present, and winds up in a new present time.  It brings up into
consciousness what is actually [although unconsciously or unknowingly]
already there in present time, examines it thoroughly, and either dissolves
it into nothingness, replaces it, or puts it back where it truly belongs.

UCP can be represented by a very simple circular diagram with PRESENT in
the middle, FUTURE ahead, the PAST behind, and COMPARE actions to the right
and left sides:
 

                              1] FUTURE

4] COMPARE     0] PRESENT     2] COMPARE
    TO PAST              TIME              TO FUTURE

                               3] PAST
 

The process starts in the middle with Step 0.
Then it goes 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3 . . . around the
outer ring until it winds up in the middle at 0 again.

Here are the UCP commands, what they do, and how they work:

DETAILED EXPLANATION OF PROCESS STEPS
 

0] WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
[Describe PRESENT scene to satisfaction.]

I just ask "Where are you now?"  If a new Seeker, I explain that this is
their opportunity to look at their entire life and scene and examine
anything important about it.  We are not listing anything or looking for
whys or causes or solutions or anything like that.  It's just a Look, See
and Say about where they are now.  "Where" is interpreted in the most
general way.  I often used to say "Tell me about your universe," but it
seems more logical and consistent to go with the past/present/future model,
and it works just fine either way.

It's the same question as "What's happening with you?," "Tell me all about
it!," or any of a number of other words which all mean essentially the same
thing.  After the Seeker gets the hang of UCP, they don't care what you say
because they know what they are going to do.   It's what the Seeker does
that is important, not what the Witness says.  You could say "Talk!"

A new Seeker may well talk for two hours about his entire life.  A Seeker
who already had a  session this morning will probably give me a minute or
two about what he has noticed since his last session.  I don't care.  He
talks until he feels he has looked at "where he is now" and defined or
described it to his satisfaction.  This orients him to present time and
gives a starting or reference point in the session for him to compare other
scenes to.  This in itself will make his universe more understandable to
him.  This gets the session started.
 

1] WHERE MIGHT YOU BE?
[Describe FUTURE scene to satisfaction.]

This is the POTENTIAL, FUTURE, IMAGINE, MOCK-UP, CREATIVE side of the
process.  It is not a tightly worded or narrowly construed question.  You
could probably run it just fine as "What might happen?," "Imagine
Something," or anything similar.  The words are not critical as long as you
understand what you are doing.  I merely want him to create or notice some
possible or impossible future.  It does not have to make sense or be
possible or relate to anything else.   I just want him to fish something
out of his universe and look at it.

Whatever the Seeker thinks of is fine and dandy.  Anything he can imagine
is a proper answer.  It could be a state of mind, an emotional state, a
mental attitude, a spot on the highway, a physical position, a computation,
a social position, a role he plays, etc..  It can be 10,000 years in the
future, impossible by definition, in his wildest dreams, in another
dimension, in a parallel or non-parallel universe . . . whatever.  An
unwritten Star Trek adventure is fine!  It can be the same fantasy he's
looked at 20 times already.  Great!  I don't care.  Anything will do!  His
attention is on it . . . so that's the "right" item.

I don't even care if it is really from the future or not.  I often have the
Seeker tell me a place he "might be," and in the process of describing or
comparing it . . . he realizes it is actually an incident from his past.
Fine!  He snuck up on a REGRESSION by putting it in the future to make it
more confrontable!  Of course, that is also a possible future place, as he
might be there again some day.  You might notice this selection method is
very similar to Freudian or Jungian "free association," except that they
didn't know what to do with what they found.

I had a session recently in which "Where I Might Be" was the dream I had
this morning . . . and analyzing the dream by comparing it to where I was
now was profound, and took me all the way up to "know" in a huge area of my
universe that was making me very frantic.

Notice that this same dream might also have come up on the past leg of
"Where I Was this morning."  Often it seems random whether something comes
up on the Future or Past command.  Who Cares?  As long as it comes up, it's
there, so you look at it!

This future leg of the process helps the Seeker discover his future, or
lack thereof.  It allows him to create new future, and to change his mind
and revise it.  It lets him separate his goals, fantasies and possibilities
from the actuality of his present time, and see how his future, or lack
thereof, is actually created by him in the now.

This is simple and easy to run because you are not trying to figure out
what the Seeker should put his attention on, and when he should take it
off.  You don't have to find, assess or analyze all kinds of mysterious
stuff in the dusty far corners of his mind to pick a minute obscure topic
or "item."  You just gently coach him to look at whatever he wants to.

Since that is all that is needed, anything additional would be an
unnecessary complexity and distract the Seeker from his important work.
The less the coach / therapist / Witness does, and the less attention the
client / Seeker has on him, the better the session works.  If the Seeker is
so absorbed in his universe he forgets the Witness is there . . . Wonderful!

This description of "where he might be" could be 2 words . . . or 20
minutes.  I don't really care, as long as the Seeker describes it to his
satisfaction.  When he is ready, we go on.
 

2] COMPARE THAT TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW.
[Describe Similarities and Differences to satisfaction]

This step has the Seeker compare the selected "something" with "present
time."  I don't use the word "place," because I don't want to define what
he will be comparing.  I don't know if it will be an attitude, a
computation, a physical location, an activity, an emotion, a state of mind,
a beingness, an identity, or whatever . . . and I don't care.  Whatever he
gave me on Step 1, I just want him to compare that to "where he is now" . .
. which may still be what he described Step 0 . . . but quite likely has
changed considerably since then.

By "COMPARE," I am asking for SIMILARITIES and DIFFERENCES, but I only ask
for them specifically if I am grooving in a new Seeker who is not used to
UCP and is still feeling his way into it, or who may be reluctant or
inhibited in talking.  Otherwise "compare" is fine.

This step could be two sentences, or it could take two hours as he looks
back and forth between the two scenes over and over again, seeing  more and
more clearly, and describing things in more and more detail and texture . .
. until he  loses interest in this.

In order to compare the two elements, the Seeker essentially has to view
both pictures, incidents, viewpoints or whatever at the same time.  This in
itself is extraordinarily beneficial to him.  Most people's awareness is
much like a television set displaying a station selected by a remote
control . . . in someone else's hands.  They are totally hypnotized by
whatever program, picture, valence, identity, advertisement, idea, etc. is
currently displayed on the screen.  They identify with that picture as
"them."

When the picture flips to a different channel, it's still "them," as far as
they are concerned . . . and they have no awareness that it's actually a
different channel and program.  They can only duplicate or comprehend one
viewpoint at a time, and it's totally beyond their awareness that they were
spouting a totally different party line just a short while ago.

The constant discipline of comparing builds the ability to view two
viewpoints, pictures, etc., at the same time.  This forces them out of the
picture they have been in, and gets them to adopt the viewpoint of the
being who is looking at the pictures.  This differentiates them from the
pictures they have been dramatizing, and are now viewing.

If their attention is on only one item, they can interiorize into it and be
it.  When they confront two pictures at once, it is very clear that they
are neither one, but are the viewer of pictures.

This is an enormously important spiritual capacity to develop.  It builds
enormous self-awareness of the Seeker as the creator of his own universe,
and greatly enhances his ability to knowingly create himself and his
future.  This simple ability is far beyond the realm of most "Ostensibly
Together" or "Spiritually Progressed" individuals, who are actually
thoroughly interiorized into a hysterically compulsive identity they are
strenuously dramatizing.

While doing UCP, you will see all kind of mental phenomena, known variously
in different disciples as circuits, valences, disorders, engrams,
implants, dramatizations, attitudes, compulsions, identities, incidents,
computations, etc., turn on with a vengeance . . . and turn off again with
no fancy process commands, no chains of earlier similar incidents, no long
tricky assessments of what is wrong or what to do, no complex risky listing
actions, and no Seeker attention on the Witness or the Process.  It's
smooth, easy, and incredibly effective.

Just let them describe similarities and differences as long as they have
interest.  It might be a few words.  It might be many minutes of analysis
and cognitions.  You don't have to worry about "flattening" it or getting
"all the charge off."  If the Seeker has  more charge on it, his
attention will go back to it, and he can simply look at it again on the
next merry [or not so] go-round.  You don't have to "control his attention"
and tell him when to think about what, and when to stop thinking about it.
You just easily and naturally follow his lead.

When he is satisfied he has seen what he wants to . . . we move on.
 

3] WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
[Describe PAST scene to satisfaction.]

This step of the process simply has the Seeker select something already
existing that his attention is on.  It is not critically worded.  You could
probably run it as "Remember something" or "What happened?".  This just
asks for anything from his past.  He simply selects something for
examination from what has already happened, and is therefore PAST, and he
is relatively the EFFECT of.   It could be an exact specific incident
lasting 1/10 of a second, a lingering thought he had 85,000 years ago as he
lay dying, a room he used to live in, or a broad general scene that went on
for trillions of years.  I don't care.

This leg of the process is the RUNNING OUT, AS-ISNESS, or DISCHARGE side of
prior events.  It includes as subsets all of the narrowly defined discharge
processes that many "well-trained" therapists know hundreds of.  It handles
and heals what has happened to the Seeker as effect.  It leads naturally in
the rotation to the other side of the process.
 

4] COMPARE THAT TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW.
[Describe Similarities and Differences to satisfaction]

This is the exact same compare question as in the first leg of the process,
and operates similarly, but compares the present with the past, fixed,
effect aspect of the Seeker's universe, rather than the future, imagine,
cause, create aspect.

The constant motion back and forth between the legs of the process keeps
him from getting stuck in the past and dramatizing himself as hallucinatory
total victim, and from getting stuck in fantasies of the future and
dramatizing himself as hallucinatory total victor, or vice versa.

In addition, of course, the comparing of the past to the present separates
them.  It creates awareness of similarities and differences . . . the basic
definition of sanity.  It pulls the past out of the present, and lets it go
to where it should be . . . back into the past.  It separates the Seeker
more and more from the past into a clearer and more sharply defined present
time.

The constant comparing to "where he is now" keeps bringing him into present
time.  The entire process works as a "Havingness" process, giving him an
entire universe to have.
 

Those are the process commands.
This is the overall session pattern:
 

A] START THE SESSION WITH STEP 0

This identifies the present situation or scene, serves
as a locational orientation, and starts the process working.
 

B] REPEAT STEPS 1-4 TO "KNOW"

You are not looking for a sudden "cognition."  You want to cycle through
Steps 1-4 over and over again until the Seeker comes up to "know" in the
area of the session.  He will not even know what area or topic the session
is about until the end.  On the way there, he will definitely be at "not
know" and lower about the entire session, both what it is about and how it
will resolve.  If the Seeker thinks he knows what the session is about at
the beginning, that is simply hallucination.  Don't fight with it.  Just
let it happen.  The Seeker simply has to work through his hallucinations.
You do *not* assess for or pick a topic and then "run" a session "on" that
topic or "item".  That will *not* work.  There will be some theme, topic or
area that the entire session is about, but you will not even know what that
is until it emerges at the end of session, when the Seeker comes "full
circle" to his first concerns and gets up to "know".
 

C] END WITH DISCUSSION AND AGREEMENT

When the Seeker gets up to know, it will be apparent to both of you.  He
will know what the session was all about.  It will be clear to both of you
that the entire session was about this one issue, even if it seems like a
random rancid stew of unrelated nonsense along the way.  At this time, he
will usually give you an indication that he feels he is done with the
session.

This is the appropriate time for discussion about how the session went,
what his emotional tone is, how the process is running, questions and
answers, observations about life in general, or whatever comes up.  Often,
the Seeker will ask the Witness what he thinks about something.  The
natural thing to do is . . . answer!  This is the "havingness" phase.
Having focussed his attention intensively on his own universe for the core
of the session, the Seeker will typically broaden his attention to the
exterior universes and seek other viewpoints to view.

This phase might be two sentences, or twenty minutes of new stuff popping
in to see.

When you both agree you are done . . . you are done.

UCP is not a one-session do-once process.  You use it over and over again
for many many sessions.  No one has ever "flattened" it yet.  As long as
you use it, you will continue to raise your emotional tone level and your
awareness.  As the Seeker becomes more familiar with the process and what
he does in his universe to make it happen, he will become less and less
dependant on commands from the Witness, and will start to run on
auto-pilot.  This is an excellent sign and should be encouraged by the
Witness . . . shutting up and doing nothing.
 

UCP SUMMARY

UCP addresses ANY aspect of
PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE.

It performs the AS-IS or DISCHARGE function of therapy,
as well as the CREATIVE, MOCK-UP role of self-discovery.

It addresses WHATEVER the Seeker has stuck attention
on, and handles it until the Seeker has NO attention on it.

Well . . . I think that just about covers it!    :-)

You now have a powerful tool to help yourself and
your family, friends, and anyone else you wish well.
Forget about your figure-figure . . . and get to work!

PLEASE DO UCP!
