Like walking a tightrope, exiting Hell is a balancing act. The balance is between accepting the circumstances of our own customized hell, and busting the right moves out. Paradoxically, pulling out of the Chinese finger-trap of the trauma-generated mind ID can only happen from a place of radical acceptance (of self and world).
Every map is a trap if it does not lead us through and out of the territory. There are no maps of heaven, or to heaven. Heaven accepts no substitutes so a map of Heaven would have to be as large as the territory: infinite. But the good news is everything outside of our mind-generated hell-world is infinite, a paradise regained just for the asking. All it requires is sufficient distance between ourselves and our mind-maps/mind-traps, so we no longer identify with a lonely life of self-absorption, that is the false ID’s piss & vinegar diet.
As discussed in a recent Liminalist podcast (26 min mark), every body has a natural, innate repulsion for everything that is anti-life. If we let ourselves respond unashamedly to that natural repulsion, it will gently push us away from Hell, and into the gravitational pull of Heaven, or at least Earth/Nature. This is why seeing the actual configuration of our social reality, in 2021, as being fundamentally anti-life and malevolent, is necessary to making sense of our world. And only by making sense of things can we start to understand our options, choose what is optimal to our life force, and find our way back to wholeness and happiness.
To the uninitiated, this may seem paradoxical: the more fully we let ourselves “live in hell” (see that we already do), the deeper we go in, the closer we get to the exit. This is the opposite of most pseudo-spiritual, affirmation models, that stress focusing on the positive. The problem with this approach is that the things our false identity considers positive are, more often than not, the shackles that keep us bound in hell. We choose a dissociated life of mental self-gratification, at the cost of our deeper, psychosomatic life.
At a pyschosomatic level, it is common sense to focus on the negative in order to augment the positive. We can’t get our vehicle out of the mud without addressing the ways it is stuck there. Otherwise, we end up spinning your wheels, wearing out our engines, and sinking deeper and deeper into the mud. It is not mind over matter that will save us, but mind that surrenders to the laws of Matter, the body, which are in harmony with the Spirit.
Of course there is more to liberation than the repulsion of being complicit with evil. There is also the power of attraction to provide the traction we need to escape Hell. The main elements of at-traction are discussed here, but simply stated, they are Nature (good food, air, water, etc) and Community, which entails interacting as much as possible with kindred souls with an affinity for Infinity.
The aim of the E.S.E.T workshop is 1) to provide tools for sense-making in an increasingly deranged and debased social landscape, and thereby make the necessary moves towards wholeness and well-being; and 2) to connect to other souls on this same journey, and thereby increase your access to a resonant field of goodness, love, and purpose.
The workshop if it happens will be weekly (three-hour meetings once a week). It will commence whenever there are enough committed registrants and continue likewise, as long as there is interest. A likely duration is from 6–8 weeks. Regular attendants of Affinity Groups will have free access to the workshop. There will also be “scholarships” (free spots) for interested parties with special gifts, who are likely to bring particular value to the meetings.
