As RC put it the state… (as in not just “thoughts-state” but Mind even Body-Energy-state… and that Else…) What I’ve come to figure, although some of what it means is still not clear to me- been chewing it as it conflicts so much of what is written and in our modern-Cult-ure…
(although that makes-sense to me, as if what Works was so well known… then all would be in their Dreams… every one knows that “lefty-loosey, righty-tightey” hur and that if you look to what is termed “east” you’ll see sunrise (in the “morning”) only useful to match to a map… but anyway- just two concepts that “everyone knows” … if you try to loosen a screw or whatever and you have to twist it the “other-way” one wonders what is different than usual… if not… then question that principle… if the principle is useful… all who do get?) Thus in that regard- all the Everyone knows- in terms of focus on your goals… massive actions, get out there and (hmm how much of that like " get out there" could mean “get out of here” as in someone listening to one complaining… focus on the positive, go away and not complain- even bury errors if you need to… nose to the grind-stone, early to bed, early to rise… makes… (good thoughts to teach workers?) so that’s just in relation how much in modern subculture, let alone the mainstream isn’t Contrarian… and follow the crowd isn’t doing the clearly wrong, but then again many more Buy High, Sell Low than the reverse…
ok end sidebar- digression/ framing:
<<Great story, right? Well that’s where I get confused. Since then Ive been able to use the technique>>
And that is perfect as what I’ve found is the elements of such Events (whether a major Segment change, or more-minor course-correction) have a story-like element to them, and that seems to be the twist.
The state can be revealed (this may not relate to your instance, so not wanting to sound like I’m imposing my interp on your, nor that this clearly is, but what I’ve found) in sensing “if” just prior to, and during, as well as in the while after ward… there is a sense of things all lead up to that point like an “arc” almost as if a Plot line developing to a dramatic shift in a direction… that direction in general, but the specifics and the dramatic-aspects of that shift could have a more “improvising-type” feel (thus if there was a play… each character, general story- here to there… certain events… who would X character react to Y and Z. especially in regards to Events occurred and in that kind of Event- changed by it… else improvised/dis-covered “played-out”)
** Thus two aspects (or three)…
First being one on a road-way in life path led up to and built certain affects… if those changes happen gradually sensed as just time passing (things change, etc.) if those changes are compressed they seem like a big month, or busy week, or intense day… if changes aren’t compressed but more of a pop, then are like that “seismic-shift” you felt (?) Event expressed as if did (perhaps aspects of were needed, others more co-inciding as RC wrote… the difference I’d say (sounds so close, but distinct) is the issue of what the State is… being a more expansive you… sense of emPowerment is different from a “god state”… which are both different from what can be sensed in the first type moment which is more like sensing not just the script element but the Author(ity) [the Storyteller- many say that’s the same… perhaps… but many stories/ books could have many characters in them… many of those characters believe in powerful beings, perhaps even God to them… powerful beings in those Stories at times… even some stories written with God as a character… but those stories written with even God as a character are characters- all “written”/told by the Writer… the storyteller who isn’t in the Story… (even if there was a JK Rowling in one of the Harry Potter Bks… wouldn’t be her? I don’t think there is- so if any of the Harry Potter Characters- vs the Actors- mention a JK Rowling, their concept of her outside of their world… vs their world being all “imaginary” in JK Rowling’s telling (and now input into “quite a few” readers… Imaginary/NotReal to a listener/reader of story… but the chars in story very Real
Only when a listener (perhaps the Storyteller) associates with character(s) so that they blend (author and readers may learn from but aren't changed by- one doesn't become into the story and Unreal, but the Character thereby changes.. becomes a bit realizing Events are more than.. becomes a _bit_ more Real?) - can reVeal a bit of this current (waves and winds in this tao, TpS refers as Aeon-Word fields, Memetic Magick ref as realms of Possibility within Control walls, Bubble Realms containing GameTerms) *ok too much*
** so first is sensing that flow overall, perhaps after, perhaps during…
**second is feeling a change in that flow as a result of that sensing/blending (first being more something a part of the story- second could be alterate path of story… as a result of the “Character wouldn’t do that… but instead…” etc.)
**and third being something else… part of most people’s story is sensing that something just happened to change the path, just as many characters at some point in their “journey” make a choice
-Bilbo was being persuaded to join the AdVenture… and then decided whether or not… he thought… yet clearly Mr. Tolkien wrote what he (Bilbo, and all the others) did and “thought”… even if there were draft versions or changes to the story… the one we read … the ending and middle of the story doesn’t change for us “readers” during our reading (not to imply that you mean its all written? in ex Author and char…
if a reader of Gandalf’s story, or “OUR” story read ie Watched… they see (to influence and interact with us… they’d need to enter our story… thus my comment- twisted and bent- above about our cultural understandings of things that sound like… but different).
so one thought could just be- that was in one’s story (not so useful- but if that isn’t just “madeup” words of mine, then would imply is story-ness so that isn’t the end, as would mean that was in one’s story and therefore one’s interpret[-reaction to that is a twist in the story… ) but the Improvise aspect… and put it this way what can Gandalf the character (in any of Mr T’s works) what can the character think-intend-energize… effort in-order-to Become Mr. T (ie can the character, again char in quotes, in JRR’s story become the storyteller JRR? to affect the story, let alone enter into affect Other Story(s) of JRR or non-story life of… as even a non-stop writer does much else than write… to become the author…?) one view would say if the story seemed to imply such, that was just how JRR T wrote Gandalf (sort of Nissargadatta and U G Krishnamurti combined- not Secret, LoA, nor CoM(iracles)… but could be seen, or not, in these)
its not re-alizing or jumping to that state of mind… its the story developing in such a way that the character expands such that the Author can express via- without the character “breaking” (ie not Breaking-Character as they say some method actors do… clearly an Actor knows things character doesn’t- how story will go, let alone “outside” the stage/studio is different… Would character change things if they Realized what the Actor Knows- KNEW before the Play “Julius Ceasar” by the playwright even started? (whether Ceasar, or Brutus…)
just like in Chess any piece can be placed anywhere- even though "You can't do that move." may be said.. the implication is "within the rules".. in the same way Author may self-limit ABC wouldn't make sense in this story so they say "I couldn't have That happen." but they could... just like."and suddenly the char- did" --- N appeared.. whatever.. but would a reader of story be like what? story just jumped? --- thus development, not required, as at any point, stuff is just what is being Told..
(ie not need-to develop skills else Cant DO __, more than Can DO __ once that is put into the Story, and if the story will only go there per… story line, via “skill devel”? just as in the Chess example- a pawn can too move to any sq, not in rules, but I “player” pick up and place it “there”)
so issue is new level of capability (able to do all the time now), able to do now and then… vs happens only once (I made big decision and things clicked into place…) per that being a story-element (hang a lantern on it? maybe). or just something that happened (it seemed like one made the decision and magical act, while the Magical act was actually something you were driven to do by the same current that brought the following, and the prior: ie did car come from Moon-event, or did car, your prior car-lacking sit, the Moon-event and even one’s inspiration to not only go out to the Moon (with bowl)… and even the thought to make a change… all from some other cause (a result of that working… was the magical cause what one does, what one is aware of, or Else?)
This is actually my divergent response to EA’s recent newsletter (Law of Certainty) not diverging as disagree, but rather context frame… I see more of what he previously implied with “reversed effort” as being Exert and then Forget, let-go to delegation… now changed a bit… but I see above is a bit distinct (yet meshes, just the question on development)
I sense this become far long, I’m tempted to not post, or chop off a piece (I’d edit down- but so many divergent aspects of misunderstanding require mention- and still the end result seems a mess, yah get what ya pay 4
if any read this and aren't sent off on a different tangent, perhaps might develop Working upon this.. [if any tangent off this, perhaps that helps their interp development.]
Luck in your Workings
