Questioner: Psychology is concerned with human behavior. Transpersonal psychologists are simply concerned with the behavior of the mystics in the world; they inquire into how the human's behavior is animated by nondual consciousness. Transpersonal does not mean transpsyche. Am I off with this?
In the experiential mode, consciousness is divided into subject and object, on the one hand, and identified as an objectified subject, on the other. Awareness is funneled through the imaginary and symbolic grid of meaning, and the value differentiations of the ego distort perception through the curvature of perceptual space produced by the unconsciously determined egocentric selectivity of data and reactivity impulses that organize the dimensional projection of the primordial energy of Being into structured world-appearance and egoic physical identification plus ongoing repetitive mentalization, plus the absent heart of the Ground of Being, creating a sense of lack and a nostalgic desire for an impossible fulfillment. This can be mythologized as a religious feeling, or converted into an aesthetic, ethical, or scientific discourse, or de-sublimated into an addictive craving for an existent object.
Loving is the key to thinking
Heart closed, thoughts sinking
Shutter closed, ideas like distant stars- barely blinking
I feel the difficulty
The difficulty in true and deep thinking
Questioner: Hello master, I have an important question I would very much like an answer to.
The question is: When you talk about "surrendering to god", to put it short, how do you go about doing that?
