Perspective 14 Consciousness Thinking

See this video on MySpace

Strephon talks about the contrast with Consciousness Thinking and “Eckhart Tolle Thinking.” Why?

So we are not seduced into unconsciousness by Tolle’s kind of passive, guru thinking. Why?

So that we can affirm the value of thinking for ourselves and not giving over our consciousness awareness to any guru type, no matter how brilliant in their thinking they seem.

Perspective 13 The Ego Chooses

See this video on MySpace

Strephon does a podcast and vodcast on the nature of the ego. This can be important since what Strephon emphasizes is that everyone has an ego that can get in the way or developed in the right way, make one effective and fulfilled.

The choice is up to you!

Concepts covered: ego, ego identity, ego functions, ego choice-making, choice-making, awareness, consciousness, projecting, creative, right practice.

Suggestion: practice these concepts by making a list of choices at the end of your day, by discussing with a friend, giving personal examples, and by writing in your journal to the following:

  1. -What does your ego identity consist of, such as images, expectations, family affiliations, attitudes, memories of who you were, whether you are that way today or not.
  2. -Associate your ego self-identity to the strong choices you have made in your life so far. How have they defined you?
  3. -Disidentify from these ego identities by knowing them but realizing you don’t have to live them in today’s terms just because they were you in the past.
  4. -Soon after you arise from bed list the choices you are going to make today.
  5. -At the end of your day before bed, list the choices you have made today.
  6. -Keep a Choice-making Journal in which you do identity exercises, such as putting things in there about yourself and your choices at least once a week.

– Strephon Says 43 Taking Responsability

Strephon talks about focusing your life on taking responsibility for things your your life with new commitment to positive values personally and in work life. Responding with one’s whole being.

A seven-minute podcast on taking new responsibility in your life for the new year.

Responsibility is responding to life appropriately. Instead of withdrawing or simply reacting, going hysterical, resistive and negative, open yourself, Strephon says, to what is happening and deal with it.

Solve the problem. Develop the new potential.

First, do the New Year’s Death-Rebirth sacrifice. Review last year and acknowledge what didn’t work, where you failed and lost out. Also list what you did accomplish of value.

Then in transiting into the new year, sacrifice what no longer serves the value in the new year and new life you are living. This includes friends as well as habits and hobbies.

Then take on new values and projects you want to take on and accomplish. Take responsibility. Respond.

Also, do not neglect wholeness values. Look at each of the areas of your life and focus your energy in a responsible way. What new thing can you bring to Personal Relating, to Work Projects and Relationships, to Personal Growth?

This is being responsible to the new life emerging before each one of us.

Strephon-Kyria Church Chant

See this video on MySpace

You must have courage to allow transcendence into your life.

At its best the Kyria arouses in one that special feeling deep in ones breast of the Greater Transcendence of God. How can words express such a feeling? You must do it, be it, for the full experience.

Even if you do not the chant out-loud in a specific place, like a church when no one else is around, you can still observe, hear and be with the Kyria Chant through inner listening and seeing.
