“Turn away from the problem and access the solution.” EL
The Open Door: Invite Your Superhuman Self
Chronic unhappiness has only one cause: the belief that a “problem” is caused by something or someone “out there.” So long as we insist on believing that, we are focused on “the problem” and blind to the solution—because we are looking away from the solution.
Swifter Intelligence is a method that shows and inspires turning one’s attention away from the seeming problem (out “there”) and towards the solution (within the field of consciousness). The result is the swift inflow of peace, steadily-increasing well-being, and the doorway to an entirely new life! A life of connection, upliftment, enthusiasm, and unbreakable happiness becomes yours as you exercise your freedom to turn inward, towards the solution.
Here is a short example. Let’s say someone (your partner, your child, your parent, your employer or your colleague) is cold, stand-offish and (seemingly) unloving with you. It hurts! You don’t like it, and immediately, your great-brain computer goes to work and tells and sells you all the reasons why they shouldn’t be that way. The great-brain-computer also sells you strategies for how to make them change. After all, you’re hurting! You may be depressed also—or afraid, or angry, or your pride threatened. That’s why they should change! Your hurt/anger/grief/depression/lost pride are valid reasons for you to be chronically unhappy and also valid reasons why you should focus day and night on your negative emotions, and on the solutions offered by the great-brain-computer!
By keeping your focus on negative emotions and on repetitive, mechanical thinking; by persisting in demands that people and the world change; that’s the same as being in a closed, locked room and you’ve forgotten both the light switch and the door.
With the Swifter Intelligence method, you stop ignoring the light switch, and thus you find the open door. But you have to want it, you have to want the freedom of being out of that tight, limiting darkened room.
In our example, someone is (or was) cold, stand-offish and unloving with you. Once you truly want out of the pressure, discomfort and extreme limitations of the dark room, you turn away from involvement with negative emotions, and involvement with broken thinking. Instead, you welcome and invite negative emotions—as raw, unlabeled energy—and release all involvement with it. (You’ll learn how, step by step with TERA, the Emotional Release Approach.) As you do, the energy flows into the already-and-ever-open space of consciousness, runs its course, and is absorbed. Thus, the energy, that a moment ago you believed (according to the great-brain-computer) was unbearable, and a threat; that you believed was a command to judge outwardly, to react emotionally; the resolved energy now proves that the mind’s interpretations were all fake news! No! It’s not true that people and the world should change, so I can feel better. That’s fake news, because within me is the intelligence to release and resolve the pressure of hurt feelings, wounded pride, and all the rest of the negative energies that are negative (pressurized) only because I unwittingly trapped them inside my nervous system during childhood.
So that’s the fake news, and the True news, the good news, anytime I feel emotionally triggered, the energy is not only NOT a command to react, but rather, it’s a cue to open and access the ruling intelligence of my divine, superhuman Self! The divine Self that I have ignored, denied or forgotten about.
Turning within, then, is the solution to any perceived problem. Each time you take the steps of Swifter Intelligence (Self-resting-release) focus and interest is withdrawn from the so-called problem. Attention is focused on what is aware of the negative emotions, the negative judgments…. What is aware and not at all disturbed? Not at all threatened? Not at all diminished, unloved, or unsafe?
In this way, you experience the truth of your ever-present unconditionally loving, superhuman Self. Now, you are at the threshold of a new life. The opportunity is, “Who am I? The negative reaction or the freedom to choose to go along with it or not?”
By answering this question in truth, based on your actual experience, you cross the threshold and enter the door to your real identity: Infinite-Eternal-Love-Light-Aliveness
