67. (Advanced) The Tachments
One course of action that can easily lead to disaster is the failure to differentiate between the basic kinds of tachments:
The latter is commonly called 'non-attachment', a term which is technically correct if it is properly understood.
'Attachment' is a necessary side effect of any goal construct (cp.. the chapters on 'goals' for workable definitions of 'goals' and 'goal constructs').
It simply means that the goal construct has to be maintained until the objective of the goal has been reached. If this would not be done, the objective obviously could never be achieved.
The problem is not the attachment in regards to currently active goal constructs, but rather the massive amounts of past goal constructs that were never properly dissolved.
Inspection shows that the resolution of past goal constructs is independent of their respective successes or failures.
In other words, a goal construct can and often does carry over even after its original objective was met.
Thus the basic problem of being bound to the Physical Universe and to the vastness of appearances within the same, can be viewed as a collection of uncritical attachments to goal constructs from the past.
Any attachment can therefore be resolved in a split second using the method of decomposition of goal constructs as outlined in the 'Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From This Universe'.
The inability to decompose goal constructs in the past has tempted many to try some of the following shortcuts:
- rejecting the
energy of 'will' itself (retachment),
prevailing in many Eastern philosophies;
- opposing the objective
of the original goal
construct(s), effectively creating a new, compound
construct often referred to as 'Goals, Problems,
Masses' or GPMs);
- moving the entire
goal construct into a 'hidden'
corner of the person's mental space (detachment).
It does not require much imagination to visualize the inefficiency and the catastrophically results of these shortcuts:
- while the 'will'
can be subdued temporarily,
especially when removing anything out of one's
life that could trigger a memory of the original
objective, the 'will' will be recreated in full
force once the objective or any related trigger
comes back into sight. More often than not,
the energy of the recreated 'will' is greater
than the original energy;
- the opposition
to the original goal locks the
old goal construct in place while creating a
new goal construct on top of the old one;
make this work out, at least for
some time, the energies put into the new
goal construct must surpass the energies within
the old construct.
constitutes a 'vicious cycle' - the
strength of the problem and masses connected
to it must increase with every round.
entire phenomenon is often called a GPM
(Goals, Problems, Masses).
this self-propelling mechanism
takes place at the very bottom of the range
of emotions (the so-called 'tone scale').
trigger on the original goal construct
and any of its many derivatives is pushing
down the person towards the lower range of
this scale of emotions;
- moving the entire
goal construct into a
'hidden place' in mental space will make it
a 'time bomb'. Since it is a lie of major
proportions that 'time will heal all wounds'
it is just a matter of said time until it
will blow up.
All of these shortcuts
contain a couple of
issues are located somewhere
in mental space. After using above shortcuts
the person will not be willing or even able
to look into the direction or spatial depth
of the non-confronted issue. The Being is
effectively creating a 'box' which it will
find itself unable to leave.
- the unconfronted
issues become a considerable
unwanted payload and will trigger unwanted
reactions in the future.
- the unconscious
awareness of the 'failures'
that are associated with the original goal
constructs and its pseudo resolutions are
impacting the ability to resolve future goal
construct in a destructive way.
It is therefore of utmost importance that every goal construct is being decomposed in its 'will' and its 'objective', as described in other chapters of this notebook.
Goal decomposition thus becomes ultimately the most basic and important action in processing and it results in a complete resolution of the phenomenon known as 'attachment'.
Because of the many shortcuts that a Being tried before realizing these traps, this decomposition of goal constructs will often require preliminary handlings, such as:
- 'GPM handling'
to take off the worst charge
on top of goal constructs (see for example
'The Pilot' or similar write-ups on how to
- entity handling
to find out 'who's goal
construct' it _really_ is or was;
- 'valence (or identity)
handling' to strip
- whatever else
is in the way of accessing the
original components of the goal construct(s).
This should make clear that, even though goal construct decomposition is a major undercut to many other processes, it still requires most major tools in processing in order to reach a point at which it can be done.
One aspect that wasn't talked about much in the other chapters of the Notebook on this very topic, was the third component of the goal construct, the 'sattva' part (in 'gunas' terminology) or the 'beingness' part in 'modern' terms.
To recap, here is a table to demonstrate the congruency of various angles of views of the goal construct:
the perceived 'I'
rajas, doingness, 'will', yang
tamas, havingness, 'objective', yin
After the goal constructs have been decomposed into 'will' and 'objective', the Being may still have a remarkable collection of self-created 'beingnesses'.
'Beingnesses', once assumed are NOT resolving by 'going to the earliest similar'.
The assumption of a 'beingness' is a decision made in 'present time' at each occasion and it is the core action of the manifestation of a Being in this Physical Universe.
Many of those 'beingnesses' do not create a problem at all. Some, however, are stuck at one point of a series of such assumptions, and this point is NOT necessarily the FIRST occurrence of the assumption of a Beingness.
The traditional 'going earlier-similar' method must therefore be slightly modified, yielding the
'Beingness Fast Traceroute Procedure'
Emphasis is here
on a _fast_ recall of past similar beingnesses without inspection of any
of the involved circumstances. A compulsive Beingness will NOT resolve
if the viewer gets
sidetracked into whatever particularities of the past.
With 'fast' is meant recalling 'more than one past Beingness per SECOND'.
One, and not the first (!!), will be found stuck and the indicators of the resolution of a stuckness cannot be mistaken once they occur.
It may be necessary to interrupt this procedure if the 'Beingness' in question has still related goal constructs. It can be resumed after any such handling.
It should be clear from the above that the 'Fast Traceroute' requires considerable ability and experience in past-life-recall.
This process could therefore be seen as the most 'advanced' and far-reaching process presented in this Notebook.
Lastly, it should
also be clear that a resolution of past Beingnesses will never impede the
creation of a future Beingness. In the contrary, one of the remarkable
end phenomena of this process
is the recognition of one's unlimited ability to assume ANY Beingness whatsoever.
This is because there are no limits to creating any new Beingness if there are no stuck past Beingnesses left over.
And, again, whether a Being chooses to continue to create Beingnesses within this Universe or not is most certainly a choice that a Being can only make once it has reached this very point at which it is now able to make any choice whatsoever, including the freedom of not exerting any choice at all.
Thus, any speculation about the true nature of 'nirvana' is nothing more than the product of an unclear(ed) mind.
