“The exercise of meditation is either passive or dynamic. The passive forms associate with relaxation, healing, or contemplation. The dynamic form of meditation is singular in that the practice brings into focus the conscious effort of aggressive self-examinations and nothing else. Whereas passive meditation can be performed intermittently, dynamic meditation is engaged with precisely the same rhythm as the performance of breathing. It never stops. To disengage from the dynamic meditation is essentially a choice to contribute to the chaos that saturates Human—to—Human and Human—to—Nature synergies.
Although it would seem that continuous dynamic meditation is subject to a moment—to—moment barrage of distractions (which is valid), the discipline is to progress the individual towards the capability to function concurrently in these environments.There are very specific reasons for this: (1) the individual must be cognizant of how she or he is being influenced in the moment (2) the influences of the moment transpire in real time (3) the energy flow an individual injects into the “fiber optic” that connects all of Creation is determined by the preceding number (1), and also occur in real time (4) an individual cannot alter the energetics he or she contributed to the process after the fact. For instance, if the Human Being influences the energy flow with hate and anger, the cause and effect impact is immediate. The structure does not allow for “do overs.” The reason individuals seem unable to elevate spiritually is due to the exclusion of, or negligence in passionately pursuing, the practice of dynamic meditation in her or his personal regimen. Entry into the dimensions of spiritual sensations is conditional to the mastery of the moment. Dynamic meditation is not a spectator environment.
The analysis of incoming and outgoing influences is the critical element for spiritual maturity and establishes the accurate functionality of mindfulness. For example, if an incident triggers a contrary emotion within a Human Being, a sequence of actual and potential responses is in play: (1-actual) a thought containing the determinative negative emotions (energy) is released into the “fiber optic” (2-potential) the malicious thought instigates a verbal encounter (3-potential) a physical option is executed based on any or all of the foregoing (4-actual) a cause and effect process is initiated. The depth, intensity, viciousness, violence, or brutality of such responses will be commensurate with the egoistic formation of the individual (or group, gang, society, government, religion, ad infinitum).
The real-time awareness, or conscious engagement, of the negative forces provide the impulse for an individual to seek an alternative influence. The alternate influence being explored, that of the Creating Force, transcends all chaotic or destructive forms of influence. The Creating Force cannot be influenced by anything created, except a particular expression from the Human Being. At the same time that a person consciously reveals a desire (which ultimately transforms into a demand) for alignment with the Creating Force, the inherent relationship between the Human Being and the Creating Force is stimulated. A new cause and effect dimension is constructed through a sustained, direct dialog between an individual and the Creating Force. Third party mediation is not a requisite.”
