Empower Your Life and Direct Experience

Don’t live life indirectly. Don’t consume more than you create. Don’t just look without partaking. Dive into each moment as it is presented to you. Be in it totally. Each and every second should be lived as intensely as possible, or simply put live to the point of tears.

Why?

Because life is experience, and if you have a nasty tendency of indirect experience, then your life becomes indirect. An indirect life will not fulfill you. Only the direct experienced life will fulfill.

Direct experience means your totality being present in each moment.
So take a big step back, and then hurl yourself into yourself! Continue reading “Empower Your Life and Direct Experience”

iPerceptive Books

Who’s who in the Mystics Zoo

Who’s Who in the Mystics Zoo! A original book from iPerceptive about a enlightened hippopotamus guiding the reader into the mystical experience! So beware fellow traveler and seeker because you might get enlightened just by reading it!

Click here to take peek at Amazons kindlestore!


You might have noticed, if in fact there is any one truly reading this, that I’m quite ambitious in creating this website into a great community where the empowerment of ones own direct experience is the goal, which in turn means the fulfilment of ones life.

I’m currently working on multiple books simultaneously, and in truth it doesn’t really feel like work, because everything is just pouring out of me. They are in other words being written by themselves, on topics that I’m very familiar and intimate with. Topics like those mentioned above.

Hopefully spiritual seekers can in some way benefit from these books, and if that happens to be the case, I will consider that as an accomplishment for my quest on this world, if I had any to begin with. If I would to describe my quest I would say that it would be primarily to spread the light of direct experience.

Love and Light

How to Become Enlightened Forever

You cannot become enlightened. Enlightenment is not something that you possess as an attribute or personal possession. Becoming is the antithesis of enlightenment, whereas it is the thesis of the natural world. The natural world is ever morphing, evolving and developing into more complex or simpler forms. Enlightenment is the ascension of the spiritual from the material to the immaterial. It is discovering the unchanging unground or substratum of your own reality. Enlightenment is therefore a discovery and not an possession.

Enlightenment is the recognition that some fundamental aspect of your being has never moved an inch since your first memory. It is the knowingness that your truth is the truth of the universe. It is very simple, yet appears to be difficult or even complex. The mind and natural world is no doubt highly complex where they always can be divided into more minute parts and subsequently analyzed. Whereas the truth is not an object to be dissected by the inquisitive mind of man. Everything else can be studied or often times defiled by the scissors of the human mind, but your beingness or your consciousness is the only thing that cannot be harassed in this manner.

Meditation, presence and direct experience

What are the differences between meditation, presence and direct experience? Could they mean the same thing, or are there subtle nuances that are important to distinguish when discussing them. In my view, meditation most often entails that one consciously decides to sit or lie down in a given place and then try to calm ones own mental realm. There are many techniques to get into the meditative state and they all work up to to a certain point, meaning that the one that is trying to meditate is itself an obstacle to the aims of meditation.

On the other hand, presence is simply being present, wherein you don’t have to customise your surroundings or your stature, you simply have to switch on the light, or change to a clearer lens. When you navigate the world as presence you are simply there to be there, no need to add or subtract. You are merely present with the unfolding of every moment.

Now, on to direct experience.. Is direct experience, the term, that I’ve promoted on my website, videos and blog quite furiously recently, is it any different than meditation and presence? I’d say both yes and no. The important thing is to recognize that we are using words, and all words have their own subjective reality projected unto them by the subject that is perceiving them. That being said, in my view, meditation is more of an attempt for the person to actively reach a state of meditativeness or tranquility. Presence is simply that one decides to switch to the on button. Whereas direct experience is a combination of both, passive-active conscious contact with oneself and ones surrounding. Direct experience entails ones total experience, without filtration and embellishment. One simply is in the moment, with the moment, as the moment. You are total in your contact with reality, no superfluous thoughts or feelings that you have to deal with, but only the totality of life as it is presented to you by the universe and the beloved.

On transformations and the primacy of direct experience

I want to transform iPerceptive from a quotations website to something much more alive and vibrant. Since the quotations have laid the foundation of the website I still want to keep the authors and the quotes. But they should be secondary to the primary purpose of this site. Which from now on will be primarily the empowerment of direct experience.

Perhaps I haven’t exactly made clear on what I mean by direct experience. As a human being you can either navigate this world as a person or as presence. A person often has lots of personal problems and therefore a weight that he/she/it carries around with himself. Living life merely as a person can make it rather difficult to be in the totality of the moment as it unfolds. Why? Because the person has a myriad of different projections about itself, life and the world. This creates an filtration of the immediate reality, where it is watered down to more or less fit your personal mythology. Now I deem this to be quite the limitation to our consciousness, which is why living as presence is much more true and good towards existence.

Presence has no gender and it has no objective quality. It simply is what it is. Its present, presence is here and now. It is immediate and direct. Person is not this, person is always referring to preconceived ideas about how things should be. The person is very inflexible and stale, where as presence is, I dare say, ultimately flexible. When you consciously feel that there is more to life than what your identity has to offer. Withdraw into yourself and become a witness to your own immediate experience. Your thoughts, feelings, moods, dreams, fears, loves, hopes, aspirations, depressions and everything else under the sun. Simply be present, see them as they are. Be in direct experience with yourself and the universe. This is the way of transformation and of evolution.

From now on then, I will do my best to make this website for those souls that are thirsty for more direct and subsequently more fulfilling experiences of life.
An oasis in a vast desert of personal bullshit, so keep strong my fellow yearners of truth, your path be blessed!

Behold!

Three short poems

Truth sings
when the formless meets
brimming void

Colorless breeze
from sparkling blue seas
kisses the trees

Black rose
with seven red thorns
droplets of blood

Infinity within and on high

Starry Night Over the Rhône (1888)

Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all. – Vincent van Gogh

Awareness is key. When aware you are alive, awake and alert. That amounts to a set of quadruple A’s and how can that be wrong. However when unaware you dwell in a misty realm between worlds. Mental worlds and the physical plane of existence. Why not be total in your experience of your immediate self and surrounding, only then is the enchantment van Gogh speaks about possible. Perhaps even more than enchantment, even ecstasy is possible if you are seeing from the right place.

Everything in your life should be oriented towards aligning your attention with your immediate experience. Life is experience, and when your distanced from experience you are alienated from life, and maybe then you could mysteriously transform into an alien.. or.. maybe not… moving on!

Nevertheless take the words of van Gogh into consideration and look up towards the sky and behold the starry stars. Infinity is at your door waiting for you to open and enter. My advice on top of the advice given by the great dutch painter with a sad ending, is to look and be aware just as much to that which exists within you. Infinity isn’t merely outside, it is inside as well, perhaps even more so. Look, see and bind the two worlds into one. Ascend and transcend your boundaries. Awareness is key.

Launch yourself on every wave!

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. – Henry David Thoreau

Live totally. Unfiltered experience is spontaneous and supremely natural, launch yourself on every wave and dive deep into yourself.

Dissolve in the eyes of your beloved and let only the direct experience remain. Have you found this formless sanctuary dwelling in your weightlessness. It is ever present. Eternity, infinity and the highest love. Beyond imagination beyond reason.

Love has burned away all that is not me. My heart has become a place of prayer, prayer of total love. Let love be your only guide. Love does not need to conquer, it alone truly exists. It is so. It is so.

Dissolve and give birth to your self.

Yours
You

The Door of Direct Experience

In this very moment, you can be in total harmony with your own immediate experience, and being in tune with ones own self is the surest way to understand and enjoy the life that is being lived. Here below are four phases on how you can do or rather allow direct experience to happen naturally. I recommend a slow reading of all these phases simultaneously as you’re trying to live out the guidelines.

Phase 1: Sit or lay down somewhere you can be relatively comfortable. Then wind down and proceed by effortlessly turning your minds eye or attention towards the sensation of having a physical body. Feel the weight of it and the buzzing sensations of the primal life force moving through you. If there is any specific place of discomfort or if there is any bodypart that maybe happens to be a little cold, irritated or what have you, turn your attention gently towards that area and rest your awareness there. If you’d like you could go deeper into that area by placing your hands consciously on that bodypart and by doing so combining your senses and mind, if not just continue observing the sensations happening in your body. Now defocus from these localized parts of your body and again feel your body’s total weight. Feel its diversity and its unity. Rest your awareness on the entire body as one organism, and don’t give too much attention to the separate parts. Feel it and be it.

Phase 2: Now that you are at ease and your attention is one with your body, turn your attention towards more subtle objects occurring in the screen of your consciousness. Notice how your thoughts and feelings appear and disappear, see how they connect with each other and in doing so forming a certain narrative or description of what happened or of what is going to happen. Notice these diverse mental and emotional energies and try to feel them out just the same way you felt out your body. Now of course you can’t physically touch or grasp a thought or an internal feeling the same way you can do with a body part, however what you can do is rest your minds eye on them. In fact you are doing so each and every second they appear without really noticing it. Every thought appears to suck in your attention towards itself involuntarily. Notice this and notice this subtle internal realm of yourself.

Phase 3: Now switch back your attention towards the body again. Everything is still there I presume and the sensations may have migrated or changed places but the life force buzzing in you is still pretty similar to how it was a couple minutes ago. Now gently switch back again, turn your minds eye towards the internal world of you, your personality, your thoughts and your feelings. Try now as if you could hold your own biography and life story in your minds grasp. Try to know your entire story by simply resting your attention on the entire mental realm. The mental realm which is called the story of me. Feel the subtle realms of your consciousness. and now turn back your attention towards the weight of your body. Feel the whole body as one unit, and don’t pay too much attention to certain specific places, but see rather the totality of the body. Feel the entire body pulsating with life and proceed now to the next stage and final stage.

Phase 4: This phase is the climax of all the other phases. Now go about by turning your attention towards itself. This will sound strange and counterintuitive but give it a try and see what happens. See how the attention is always moving and changing the object of its focus. Try to direct its focus on itself, or to put it in another way, turn your attention towards your own awareness. In the beginning it will feel like your trying to look at your own eyes but this will be transformed. See how the attention is at times like a monkey on a tree that jumps around restlessly. Observe the tendencies of how your attention functions. Now know with clarity that this attention is an integral aspect of you, but keep in heart that its still an aspect of you and not your definition. You are something that watches the attention moving about hither and thither, your nature is not its nature. You are beyond it, just as you are beyond your body, your thoughts, your feelings, your personality, your biography, your dreams, your fears, your identity and your mind. You are even beyond your minds eye. These are merely aspects of your being but they are not who you are.

You have neither beginning or end. You cannot be seen by your attention which sees all other objects, because your not an object whether physical or mental to be seen. You are the seer of all things and therefore in constant absolute subjectivity. Anything that your mind can see is not who you are. Your essence is immaculate and your nature is formless. Realize this deeply in your being and you shall forever be in direct experience of yourself and the universe. You have no name, you have no form, you are eternally happy and content. You cannot be destroyed nor can you be created, notice that in this state you have neither friend nor foe, sister nor brother, father nor mother. In this state you are free from all bindings and attachments. You are eternally free because you rest in your own weightless and formless space. You cannot be defined by any faculty of the intellect, for your realm is beyond them. This is the ultimate truth, see and let see. You are who you are looking for and what you are looking for is where your looking from.

Yours
You  🙂
