By observing the assemblage point.
Here are a few selected quotes that are both intriguing as they are motivating.
The quotes are not presented in any particular order.
Use your inner silence to make use of each quote...
"Will is the force that keeps the Indescribable Force's emanations separated and is not
only responsible for our awareness, but also for everything in the universe. This force has
total consciousness and it springs from the very fields of energy that make the universe.
Intent is a more appropriate name for it than will. In the long run, however, the name
proves disadvantageous, because it does not describe its overwhelming importance nor
the living connection it has with everything in the universe. Our great collective flaw is
that we live our lives completely disregarding that connection. The busyness of our lives,
our relentless interests, concerns, hopes, frustrations, and fears take precedence, and on a
day-to-day basis we are unaware of being linked to everything else."
"Human beings are composed of an incalculable number of threadlike energy fields.
These Indescribable Force's emanations form an encased agglomeration that manifests
itself as a ball of light the size of the person's body with the arms extended laterally, like
a giant luminous egg".
Only a very small group of the energy fields inside this luminous
ball are lit up by a point of intense brilliance located on the ball's surface. Perception
occurs when the energy fields in that small group immediately surrounding the point of
brilliance extent their light to illuminate identical energy fields outside the ball. Since the
only energy fields perceivable are those lit by the point of brilliance, that point is named
"the point where perception is assembled" or simply "the assemblage point."
"We as average men do not know, nor will we ever know, that it is something utterly
real and functional --our connecting link with intent-- which gives us our hereditary
preoccupation with fate. During our active lives we never have the chance to go beyond
the level of mere preoccupation, because since time immemorial the lull of daily affairs
has made us drowsy. It is only when our lives are nearly over that our hereditary
preoccupation with fate begins to take on a different character. It begins to make us see
through the fog of daily affairs. Unfortunately, this awakening always comes hand in
hand with loss of energy caused by aging, when we have no more strength left to turn our
preoccupation into a pragmatic and positive discovery. At this point, all there is left is an
amorphous, piercing anguish, a longing for something indescribable, and simple anger at
having missed out".
"Will can be described as the maximum control of the luminosity of the body as a field
of energy; or it can be described as a level of proficiency, as a state of being. It is
experienced as a force that radiates out of the middle part of the body following a
moment of the most absolute silence, or a moment of sheer terror, or profound sadness.
Those things afford one the concentration needed to use the luminosity of the body and turn it into silence. For a human being sadness is as powerful as terror. Both can bring the
moment of silence. Or the silence comes of itself, because the warrior tries for it
throughout his life. It is a moment of blackness, a moment still more silent than the
moment of shutting off the internal dialogue. That blackness, that silence, gives rise to
the intent to direct the second attention, to command it, to make it do things. This is why
it's called will."
"The wheel of time is like a state of heightened awareness which is part of the other
self, as the left side awareness is part of the self of everyday life. It can physically be
described as a tunnel of infinite length and width; a tunnel with reflective furrows. Every
furrow is infinite, and there are infinite numbers of them. Living creatures are
compulsorily made, by the force of life, to gaze into one furrow. To gaze into it means to
be trapped by it, to live that furrow. Will belongs to the wheel of time. It is something
like the runner of a vine, or an intangible tentacle which all of us possess. A warrior's
final aim is to learn to focus it on the wheel of time in order to make it turn. Warriors
who have succeeded in turning the wheel of time can gaze into any furrow and draw from
it whatever they desire. To be trapped compulsorily in one furrow of time entails seeing
the images of that furrow only as they recede. To be free from the spellbinding force of
those grooves means that one can look in
either direction, as images recede or as they approach".
"Every creature in the universe is attached to the dark sea of awareness at a round point
of luminosity that was apparent when those creatures were perceived as energy. On that
point of luminosity, which the sorcerers of ancient Mexico called the assemblage point of
human beings, zillions of energy fields from the universe at large, in the form of
luminous filaments, converge and go through it. These energy fields are converted into
sensory data, and the sensory data is then interpreted and perceived as the world we
know. What turns the luminous fibers into sensory data is the dark sea of awareness.
Sorcerers see this transformation and call it the glow of awareness, a sheen that extends
like a halo around the assemblage point".
"The energy body is a conglomerate of energy fields, the mirror image of the
conglomerate of energy fields that makes up the physical body when it is seen as energy
that flows in the universe. It is smaller, more compact, and of heavier appearance than the
luminous sphere of the physical body. The body and the energy body are two
conglomerates of energy fields compressed together by some strange agglutinizing force.
The force that binds that group of energy fields together is according to the sorcerers of
ancient Mexico, the most mysterious force in the universe. My personal estimation is that
it is the pure essence of the entire cosmos, the sum total of everything there is".
"The physical body and the energy body are the only counterbalanced energy
configurations in our realm as human beings. By means of discipline it is possible for
anyone to bring the energy body closer to the physical body. Normally, the distance
between the two is enormous. Once the energy body is within a certain range, which
varies for each of us individually, anyone, through discipline, can forge it into the exact
replica of their physical body-that is to say, a three-dimensional, solid being. Hence the sorcerers' idea of the other or the double. By the same token, through the same processes
of discipline, anyone can forge their three-dimensional, solid physical body to be a
perfect replica of their energy body-that is to say, an ethereal change of energy invisible
to the human eye, as all energy is".
"Seers maintain, naturally, that awareness always comes from outside ourselves, that
the real mystery is not inside us. Since by nature the emanations at large are made to
fixate what is inside ones luminous cocoon, the trick of awareness is to let the fixating
emanations merge with what is inside us. Seers believe that if we let that happen we
become what we really are--fluid, forever in motion, eternal. The degree of awareness of
every individual sentient being depends on the degree to which it is capable of letting the
pressure of the emanations at large carry it".
"The total world is made of the forty-eight bands. The world that our assemblage point
assembles for our normal perception is made up of two bands; one is the organic band,
the other is a band that has only structure, but no awareness. The other forty-six great
bands are not part of the world we normally perceive.
There are other complete worlds that our assemblage points can assemble. The old
seers counted seven such worlds, one for each band of awareness. I'll add that two of
those worlds, besides the world of everyday life, are easy to assemble; the other five are
