To give you an idea of how the practices for the book will be presented, here’s what I wrote today for the Soul Aspect.
From the book in progress.
Your brain has been wired to believe that you are a human being. It has been conditioned since birth by friends, family, teachers, and society to believe that you are a person.
The purpose of these exercises are to help reconfigure your brain into believing it is more soul than it is human. They are designed to help you get into the habit of perceiving the world through the eyes of the Soul Aspect.
The Soul Reminder List (Yin)
It’s easy to forget the evidence. It’s even easier to forget that you’re driving around a soul. So we’re going to make a list of reminders. A Soul Reminder list. Short sentences that remind us of the evidence.
You are going to want to carry your list with you throughout the day. To do this, you’ll need to make it portable. For the tech savvy, create a text document on your smart phone. For the old-school types, write your list in a small notebook that fits in your pocket or purse.
To create your list, re-read the evidence above (WGW: Evidence of the Soul can be found here (PDF)). For each case that resonates with you—that stands out—write a one line reminder about it. For example:
The dead woman who saw the tennis shoes on the window ledge.
It doesn’t need to be a long list, just a list of the most powerful, memorable cases.
Get into the habit of scanning your list daily, multiple times a day. Read it before you head off to work. On your commute, think about the implications of these cases. Scan your list on your lunch break. Then again as you head home from work.
What you are doing is re-wiring your brain. You are convincing it that the soul is real. That death is the illusion. That none of this (looking around) is all that important. None of it need be taken too seriously.
Over the next few weeks, you’ll be surprised at how much more you feel like a soul. And how much more you are acting like one.
How Should I React? (Yang)
The next challenge that life throws at you, ask yourself this question,
As a soul, how should I react?
As often as you remember, whenever you are challenged, ask yourself that question.
Sometimes the answer will inspire you to act as a soul. Sometimes it will reveal ego-knots—old, fearful conditioning that isn’t easy to drop.
Either way, you are re-wiring your brain. You’re reconditioning it to see life from the Soul Aspect’s perspective.
A car cuts you off in traffic. As a soul, how should I react?
Your mother-in-law is implying you’re not good enough for her child. As a soul, how should I react?
You want to quit your job, but you won’t make as much money in your dream career. As a soul, how should I react?
You don’t have enough savings to cover an unexpected bill. A co-worker makes an unwanted advance. The babysitter didn’t show up and isn’t answering your calls. The house burned down. You were fired. Your dog died….
Life is filled with challenges.
Life is filled with growth opportunities.
As challenges arise, use them to remind yourself to ask the question. As a soul, how should I react? You don’t have to act on it, but you should at least contemplate it. How would my life be different? How would I feel about myself? Why am I resisting? Maybe I should act. Maybe it would be worth it.
Practice, practice, practice.
