The Free State – Identify With Your Real Self – Your Beingness (1984)

In the way, I will help you to identify better with that which you really are, and with a lot of helpful hints, and how to identify with the Real You that you that never ever changes, that you ever whole-complete-perfect.  The You that you are trying to get to, in everything that you are doing.  The You that you are looking for where it isn’t – externally.

One reason why I say it is easy is because you are trying to find You.  How difficult is that?  Also in your every moment, you are experiencing the Real YouYou cannot help but experience the Real You – when you say “I”, that is – “I Am.”  It is the beingness that you are – that is you.

How many of you would expect to have this carcass a thousand years from now?  A hundred years from now, even fifty years from now?  May be there is one of you. (Laughing) 

And, if you really love your body that much, you’ll do it.  To stay in 18 all your life, may be 16…   But, we should look toward the part that we really are, bring it out, identify with it, make it part of our conscious living.  I Am I, get the sense of only I, I, I, I, I Am, I Am that I Am.  When I say, “Are you?”  You say “Yes.”  O.K, that is!  Just “be” that ONLY. 

And you are [now] in the state that you all the time striving for with misery.  Misery moving away from that state where you identify with your beingness.  The only happiness there is – is being in your beingness.  It is just quieting the mind to satisfying the desire, and the mind is quiet you just being, and that is the happiness you feel, and that is the only happiness there is.
How many have discovered that yet, that there is only one single happiness – “that’s when you being your beingness.”  O.K, that is a big assist, because it alleviate, do away with all that effort looking for it out there in a million directions.  Now, that doesn’t stop you from doing what you are doing out there, it doesn’t matter what you dowhat matter is your attitude toward it, your understanding of it.  You sure make life much easier when you identify with your beingness!

Trying to get yourself placed on a scale of where you are.  It’s good to see yourself objectively.  There are two benefits for doing so.  One is when you start, all your garbage, your emotion come out for releasing.  And then, when you watch it, it is entirely different, isn’t it, when you watch it?  Because the first part is very subjective, “Is me, the problem that I pet”garbage!  And, is not what it looks like objectively, we don’t see ourselves the way we really are.  So, when we come back and look at it, we want to hide most of it, don’t we?  “That’s not me, I didn’t do that...”  But, you see yourself objectively, it helps you move into the point of garbage that you are very much avoiding.

So, when you identify as to where you are, and you see it objectively, you can say, “Oh boy!  I am on first step.”  Or, “I am on the tenth step, I got to move.”  So, identifying is part of seeing yourself objectively.

And there are three parts that you think you are:

You are your beingness, that is the real part of you.  And then, it develops all these Programs over the ages, and the programs motivate the thinking.  The Programs are your Feelings.  I don’t know are there any part of the world that psychologist and psychiatrist today accept feelings as programs.  They are still blinded as what they are.  I think they accept them as natural and right, just adjust them a little bit, so things get a little better. 

But, Feelings are simply Programs, subconscious, automated programs of how we react to the external world.  And, everyone of them had been put as a pro-survival program in order to keep the body surviving.   How many of you see that all these feelings are survival program?  That’s Great!  You get to see how silly is, when you trying to survive a situation that you are eternal beingThat is what you are doing. 

You have no choice, you are eternal.  All these struggles trying to survive, but where is the error?  What do you trying to survive the carcass, as I used to say that you are driving around in that car is your case, got you closed in there.
So, in your beingness, you create your mind, and start programming everything, and you think you are the body, and you think the world is external to you – after you have created it. 

You Let Go, by remembering that you created the whole thing, and is all created here in your mind.  Change your picture mentally and instantly change it out there – call the Miracle!  I believe most of you have experience instantaneous changes out there.  How many have experience?

There is nothing out there, is just sum of total thinkingness, most of which is subconscious, and there it lay the problem. 

Subconscious mean simply we do not want to look at it.  The mind is a tremendous mystery to the world because they don’t understand what it is.  I can see the simplicity of it – is the sum, total of all your feelings and thoughts, that’s all.  How simple it is, is a collection of your feelings and thoughts, and everything you experience is via the mind.  Go unconscious, mind out the way, and there is no experiencing.

So, do your best to identify where you are at.  Most of the time, are you identifying with your body and the world?  The answer is yes. 

But you can make it otherwise.  You continue in what you are doing, but shift your identity from being the body to the being.  Identify with the Beingness, and you just sit and watch the world goes by.  You get into a state of witnessing, you don’t even feel yourself moving because you cannot – you are omnipresent.

When you identify with you beingness, you discover are everywhere present in the entire universe.  And should you choose, you can take a look-see anywhere in the universe without moving because you are there.  You don’t even have to do Astral Travel.  You are Omnipresent.  Astral Travel is in the Mind.  Astral Body and Mind are almost one in the same thing.

So, identify where you are at, make a decision to cut the journey short – go free.  Why agony when you can be free?   So, the Real You is the Beingness.  The Ego-you is 2 and 3(refer to the diagram above), is in your Mind and your Body.

And your three states that you identify with are Beingness, Doingness, and Havingness.  With this you can relate to the Chart of Emotion.  Apathy, Greed and Fear are down in Havingness Only.  When you are down there, you think of your well fare – depends on how much you can have, and you spend all your time trying to make and have.

As you move up into Lust, Anger, Pride, and Courage, is moving towards Doingess.  Instead of thinking your well fare lays in Having, you feel that you got to be a Doer

Of course, that is in an advance state, and on 5 percents of us are Doer.  95 percents of us are wanting to Have.  We are down so low that we are putting ourselves in the state of being a slave – we must have a job, someone must told us what to do, and give us the food that we eat, and the money to get our lodging. 

The ONLY reason why people work in jobs is that we are having a slave consciousness, we are down in the Havingness. 

Apathy, Greed and Fear that is where most people are riding them majority of the time.  Move up onto Courageousness, Pride, anger and Lust, then you got to be a Doer.  Which is a much freer state than being a slave.

And, when you get into the state of “I Can Do”, you got enough wish and well to move to the top.  Because you discover when you just quiet in the being that is the nicest thing there is, and with the Doingness energy, you work harder to drop the remaining limitation –  the AGFLAP, so that you can remain in just to Be all the Time. 

Now, that sense of beingness is not related to the world.  It relates to how you look at the world.  You watch the world go by, you watch yourself, you watch your own body moving around like you now watch other body.  You see your body objective to you like you see other body objective to you.

So, do your best to move up to constantly identify with your Beingness.  Hold on to “I Am” or “I – I – I” Only.  I Am my beingness – I Am, I Am I Am-ness.  Be No the Doer.  And then when you get to be a Doer, then do your best to see that you are not the Doer, that all that are objective to you.  Take the attitude “I Am not the Doer.”  And what happen there is you let go the Ego-sense of doing and shift into allowing the higher power or whatever you call to do it.  In religion, they say “Let go, Let GOD”, can he do it?  Yah, he can do everything.

When you let go of your ego-sense, you automatically move into your beingness.  And that takes care of everything and no effort, your life become totally effortless. 

And, start to Take ALL Your Happiness from You.  Recognize that every joy you have, that nice quiet place of just being, where your desires are out of the way. 

Even though you are taking pleasure from the world, try to recognize that the pleasure is being you – your mind is quiet, now on the way, we would identify anyone as us, see everyone as you, and that is what happen when you see that you are beingness, and that your beingness is all beingness, so it includes everyone.  So, you see other people as you. 

Then try to identify with everything out there, every atom as you, because it is your making.  And when you identify with it, you get to see that you created everything that you experience.  It is all in your mind – all your experiencing.  It is all in your creative mechanism, mind is only creative – create with thoughts that we hold in Mind. And, in the end knowing this being, you can get to know yourself as two things: I knowing myself, I Am myself.

So, the ultimate knowing drop away into being, all knowledge drop away into being.  You let go of all the accumulation, that you spend life time accumulating in the way as knowledge, because these are lesser knowledge than omniscience, it is all limited knowledge limited by the mind.  And, you let it go and you discover that you are omniscience, you are all-knowingness, back to which you don’t have to work hard thinking, there is no more thinking, you are knowing, and your knowingness is no thinkingness.

So, see nothing out there but your sum-total thinkingness.  There is in actuality nothing out there but your Beingness.  See No objectivity, Only subjectivity.

It is good that you memorize all these key points in the diagram.  These are stuffs I believe you don’t read in books.  So, it is good to keep it in a way that you can come back to look at it.  This is Taking Responsibility for everything that happens to you “What did I do to cause all these awful thing?”  à You Become It, the Capital “I”.

To know that habit, and your initiating thoughts, direct coming out that and you release them, so that negative happening out there would stop.  The less negative happening, the more positive happening acquired, your life is easier to go on. 

If you constantly being play by death facing you, it is difficult for you to release.  But, if your life is easy, you are in a better place to release.  You are not so fearful of your program any more.  You will able to allow bottom program of the fear of dying, the fear of living, and release it.  And when you continue this, see nothing out there but your sum-total thinkingness, then you discover there is, in actuality, nothing out there but my beingness. 

It remind me what Yogananda had said, “When you get to the end of the line, you discover that there was anything but I all alone.”  I, my beingness, am the totality of all beingness, and that is the only real thing there is.  Your beingness never ever changes, your beingness is eternal. 

And, because it never changes, it is the only truth.  If something changes, there was not true the moment before.  For a thing to be true it has to remain as it is.  And the only thing that you would experience that never change is your beingness, which you are right now, identify with it and move toward your beingness. 

And you reach a point where you begin to see no objectivity, nothing apart from me, there is nothing out there but the my sum-total thinkingness.  You are me.  Every atom in the universe is me.  This is what you would see, as you stay, as you identify with your beingness.  Here we are trying to scratch for a little piece of it, but the totality of it is ours – GOD creation.

So, we work and work, and release and release until there are no thoughts.  Now, every one of you experience moment when there are no thoughts – as the tremendous state, but that moment as a piece of garbage come into play, it pulls you from that nice quiet place.  And, some of you think that is the noise out there it is real, not the beingness, and we move away from rather than try to stay in the beingness.

Now when you get there, you will be intuitive only, you operate in the world without thinking.  You be offensive to no one. You have answer for everyone. You can talk to people on their subject and help them.  And as you are doing it, you are watching your body talking and answering their questions, and you are just listening to it just like they are.  Does it sound Good!

So, do not identify with your body and mind.  What is left?  Your Beingness, your Is-ness, your are-ness, your am-ness, your existent-ness.  That is the part you that is real, whole-complete-perfect-eternal, that is the part of it that you are struggling to get to in everything that you are doing.  You never rest until you get there!

To sum up: Have NO ATTACHMENT AND NO AVERSION, AND YOU WILL HAVE EVERYTHING.  You have the ALL, the universe will be yours. 

For in your universe, you have created it, it is yours in the first place.  You just let it be, you just remain identify with your beingness, which is the greatest thing there is.

The words in this diagram help you to set your goal.  The word I like best is Imperturbabilitya place where there is nothing and no person can disturb you.  Even if someone trying to kill you how can they do it for you are eternal?

The greatest disturber of everything, the cause of all turbulence of the mind, masturbation, everything, is desire.  It spins us into a tremendous world of what we are into.  Aim for Desirelessness,
aim to release all your desires.

For Effortlessness, do your best to move towards less and less effort.  Of course, you got to move up, out of the Havingness state into the Doingness state, before you can make thing effortless.  So, when you let go and identify with your beingness, thing becomes effortless.

The sense of Actionlessness of not being the Doer.  Work towards that, and towards Witnessing everything that is happening.  Sit back and be the witness.  And when you reach the top, all these things are in place, and that is the way it will be.

Those are the words that I like best in the top state, you might some other words you could add in.

We Must Get Rid of the AGFLAP in order to CAP it.  And, looking from the Right to Left, it is a PAC-man that gobbles up the AGFLAP.  But, you need to get up here to the CAP, in order to gobble up the AGFLAP completely. (You must get high to release.)  It is from the high point, that which you reach down into suppress ‘fear of dying’. Allow it up, so that you can let it out.

O.K.  That is the end of my talk for today.  Be yourself, you got no choice.  No matter how much you try otherwise, you are always end up, eventually, being yourself only.  Why Not Now?  Why Take Time?  O.K.  Thank you.

       The reason for having a transcript in black and white is explained by one of the Lester Levenson audio clip as follows:...

“Momentum is very important in getting realizations.  You stay with something, it becomes clearer and clearer as you stay with it.  But if it starts getting clear and you move off, when you come back on to it, it's more difficult to get into it again.

And so, I am anti-talks, tapes, because of that.  I can see it doing harm in that it doesn't let you stay with something, because the conversation goes on and on and you move off one thing onto another — to another without getting a realization of any one of them.  I believe you got much more good out of reading the book…” —  Lester Levenson.

Self Development Idea (31): Get Off the Roller Coaster of Life and be Free (31 Oct 1984) by Lester Levenson

Getting Off the Roller Coaster of life and Be Free

Video Record in 1984,

You may find the video from YouTube with the same title, the following is the transcripts.


Good morning,

I will take you on the major roller-coaster ride that we are on and have taken.  Interesting, your daily life are roller-coasting all the time.  But, we should know intellectually the whole complete picture, which when we do, I think it better help to place ourselves, better help us move in the direction of getting off the roller-coaster. 

We can imagine it, life should be straight-line, not even that, it should be a point, never move, never act, never do, and that is the ultimate state.  Your body move, the world move, and you do not do a thing; you just sit back and watch it off.  So, this concept of being still, being a point, or better than that, being every point, without moving, does not take away from you, your dear-dear world that you hold on to for life, which is unimous.

So, I know some of you seen it before, probably more than once.  For anything I do, it say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again…  I wonder, “Why don’t you hear me?”  Or, if you do, “Why don’t you just do it?”  And the doing is really undoing of the doing, so that you can remain still and just be and be and be and be. 

What I am really doing, I see is introducing Mantra.  Anyone here doing Mantra or have some Mantra?  O.k. I give you some, “If I could be, and be and be and be.” “I Am in Heaven all by myself.” “I got to be free, I got to be free…”  

There is a lot more, but the whole concept of Mantra is to get your mind in the direction, and try to quiet it by holding it on that one direction, so that the other direction will drop away.  But, Mantra is good if you have a very noisy mind, to get it quiet.  And the one I like best, I just heard: “I am I, I am I, I am I, I, I, I.”

We start of in being only Beingness, if you could imagine what that’s like.  The mind cannot think beyond the mind.  Mind is a come down from Beingness.  So when you try to imagine the Beingness, it is impossible.  But, how many of you have experience just being your Beingness?  I like to see a show of hand.

That’s almost all of us.  There isn’t a moment when you are not experience your Beingness, and this is what you are looking for!  In your every act in life, you are looking for your beingness, you call it your “Self”.  But, I am just my Self only, I am my beingness. And you can’t help but be your Self, you can’t help but be your beingness.

So, what do we do?  We take a sway ride, a roller coaster ride.  We start from a perfect, wonderful spot, and start moving out, take a downward ride, go to a bottom, and then ride back up again.

In this all perfect state of all beingness, in order to get into difficulty, we create what we call our mind.  So, right in the beginning here, we set up a Mind. It is only an instrument to separate, only an instrument to create differences, parts primary, after which the more parts we create, the more it hurt. 

So, after we created this mind, we do everything to get back to the beingness with the mind, but the mind cannot do it because it is slower than beingness, but what the mind can do is direct you towards letting go of the mind, so that you can just only be.

So what we started up, that is not enough — we set up a body.  The first body is a “Causal Body”, there every concept, every idea we have is instantaneously fulfilled.  

As in the Causal Body, every concept is instantaneously fulfilled, and there is not too much motivation to get out of that.  And it is relatively easy to do it, to go back up to the beingness state from here, but what we do is to make a denser body – call “Astral Body”.  And, still make an even denser body – Physical Body”, and here is where we really hang our Self!  (See the picture below) I am putting the neck right under the line.(Laughter from the students.)

In the realm of time, this process was started eons ago; it took hundreds of millions of years to get into this Physical.  See how stubborn we are.  And, theoretically, anytime anyone of these bodies, should choose to go right back up to the top.  But as you have noticed that you got so caught up in your toys, in your external that you just don’t want to let go! 

So, we developed all these external, more and more and more.  And, the more we developed, the heavier we feel, the slower we get, the slower we move, until we hit the bottom, the state we are in — the physical, it is the slowest, densest state possible onto being, everywhere in the universe.  We cannot go slower, lower, denser than we are right now.

So, in another perspective, we are in a great place to be, we are half-way through, and we have the release methods, we are actually in the position to move up and out of the physical state.  We have chosen a time to come for the incentive to get out is the physical are going the Greatest.  That’s Great!  Because, when there is so much trouble out there, in the external world, then we said enough, and we go back up — Home

So, you have chosen a wonderful time, you couldn’t choose a better time to come into this physical realm.  Because unconsciously we set it up, originally, consciously, so that we will not be forever caught up in this heaviness, in this misery, in this limitation.

And, when we set it up, we could see ahead of time, that you get so blinded you don’t know where you are going.  And so, we set up the automatic protective stop.  That is the physical set up, so that the physical can’t work anymore, then we have to go back up, there is only one way to go — Up.

I don’t know whether to mention it or not, but I will.  The leader of what consider the most spiritual country in the world died, assassinated, in this morning — Indian Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, by whom?  Two of her personal guards. 

What I am saying is — there is no safety in this world.  But what you trying to do, you are trying to make it safe.  Even she gets to be one of the head of the most spiritual, one of the largest country, she still can’t be safe.

As long as personal safety is concern, until you identified with you beingness, and when you do, you have the absolute safety there is, you are untouchable-immortal-whole-perfect. 

So, try not hold on to this physical carcass with the intensity that you do.  Start looking to moving up, you move back up to Astral, when you get up there, it is different from the former-state of Astral.  Because, in the former-state of Astral, you were looking downwards all the time.  Now, here, you keep the direction up. 

Now, when you do it enough, you got to be a Christ, a Buddha, back in the Causal State, that is where they are.  And where there are is such a thin line from just beingness only.  Should they choose to go over the line they could do it.  But, they just caught up and wanting to help the world so that they want to start helping, since most had hanging around for thousands and thousands of years.  But, they do it in a very comfortable body — the Causal Body.

Q: What about you, master?  Are you in the Causal?
Lester: Were I in the Causal, I would not be talking to you.  When I say you, I mean the world.  I sat in there for years, and then came out to do my duty, to guard my country.  (Group Laugh out loud!)  
I volunteer for it. (Group LOL!)  
But, once you sit in that quiet state, it never leaves you, and it is extremely difficult to stay with the noise.  I still have to use radio, news, read the newspaper, to know what’s going on in the world and so on.  Because if I don’t, I just sort of automatically float up, and if you ask question, I just look at you and smile — because there are really no answer to the question you are asking. 

You are asking me, “Why should we be limited the way we are?” “Why should we have all these trouble?” “Why should we have this heavy body?” “Why should we suffer?” “Why should we…”  That is what every question you put to me sound like.

And, in the early days, I smiled to all these questions and not aware of it.  Until someone told me that I was very rude.  I got to ask her why is that so, she pointed out that I just smiled to her when she was asking question.  I then discovered that I didn’t answer majority of the questions people asked, but in a way, I did answered them with a smile — and that smile was that perfect being. 

Of course, when you project that to the other person, it tends to lift them, but of course I can’t lift them high enough to agree with me.  So, they want a nastier answer for they are down in the pit, and I have to learn how to talk “pit language” in order to give “pit answer” to you. (Group LOL!)

In 1968, I begin watching TV, hour in, hour out, one program after another, so I can get my first feeling.  And, when I got the first feeling, I got a little tear in the corner of my eye, I’d jump up and I applauded. (Laughter!)  

But, it me into 1968 before I could do that, from 1952 to 1968, back in 1952 I knew I would be doing what I Am doing, and the whole picture. 

When you are there, there is no time.  You can see — back a million years, forward a million years or tomorrow.  But, I saw the picture, and knew I needed to come back, it took me 18 years to get into the realm of thinkingness, but it took me 3 months to get out of it.

When you dream, and you see your body, that is your Astral Body, and that Astral Body is the Matrix for the Physical Body, so it looks exactly like it.

Q: Matrix means what?
Lester: Matrix means mother (or mold), mother of this body, it forms this body.

Now, in the Causal Body, we are in the thinkingness.  

In the Astral Body, it is more of Doingness.

And, down in the Physical Body, it is mostly HavingnessWe think we have to have, started to accumulate more and more and more stuffs from the external world. 

Now, when we think that we have the world, like some of our leaders do, they want to take in the moon.  Last week, NASA was talking about Mars, they think the Russian will get there before them.  When we got the Mars, and we want the whole Solar System, after that we want the rest of it — when you are in the realm of Havingness.

So, when you are in Havingness and start to do, it move you up to the Astral.  Now there is a difference between the former Beingness State and the Returned-Beingness State.  When we were in former Top State (Beingness), we were up there in sort of a passive way.  And, when we gone through the trouble of going downward to bottom and get back up, we come back to it in a positive way. 

I think the best way I could explain that is like sickness.  If you were born healthy and healthy all your life, would you appreciate the Health?  Well, you will like it, it is nice, but you will not be aware of the value of the Health!  However, when you are sick for a decade or two or three, and then you become Healthy, you will always appreciate the state of Health.  That is a positive knowing of what is Health. 

Whereas, if you were born Healthy and remain Healthy all the time, it could passive knowing of what the state of Health is.  So, we gone through the process to get back up to the Beingness state, we go out no more!  Because, after you have learned, why live in the Hell?

Now, in the perspective of getting back up, because we are down here at the bottom, in physical real, we have a tremendous advantage.  When you are in Hell, the advantage is the incentive to get out of it, and we fight within, to get out of the state.  And because of that, from the bottom, we can go straight-up all the way back Home, when we so decide. (See the green path in the following picture.) 

However, when you try to get up from the nicer realm, you take eons to go all the way, for things are nice, everything fall into line.  Your conscious of the fact that you are going up without incentive to do it.  And so, the old programs hang-on and keep us in the nice state for eons, and yet we will never be fully comfortable in any of the intermediate states until we get back Home. 

We are always plotted by the memory of what it was at the beginning Home State.  So, to avoid the endless slow-nicer path.  You see, you are in these intermediate states you are highly sensitive, for the majority of the time everything are wonderful, but when things are not, you will feel it far more intensive than you can feel now.  Your feeling is totally concentrated on whatever the feeling is when you are in these intermediate states.  And comparing it to the harmony that you are living in, it’s extreme when you hit, and you will hit it, it’s extreme.  And, in the slow-nicer path, you will occasionally going into a terrible feeling.

How many of you have read the “Autobiography of a Yogi”?  I can use that book to correlate to this thing: 

Yogananda, he was free before he was born.  And, at one time he was going to visit to one of the saint way out in the midterm, and all of the sudden, he dropped down on the ground, he was crying and screaming, “Oh! Please get me an experience of GOD.” from the high state.  When you going through that non-Godly state, it is excruciatingly painful, he throw himself on the ground, with screaming, with agony, for not being one with God.

Those are the thing would go through on these higher state, in the nicer path.  So, what I am trying to say is that although this nicer path is tempting, and as you move up, you would still experience these troubles.  

My recommendation is take this straight path, get off the roller coaster, go right back home!

Being in this state we are in, anyone of us can do it.  Remember that the tremendous advantage of being here in the physical, you can go straight up and back home.  You can do it in a few months, a few years, within this life time.  

Or, you want to do it in many-many life time, it is up to you.  You make the choice, and the majority people on the earth, who don’t known the Sedona Method, are going to take million of years.

Through the trial and error, through the hard way, of smashing up everything to show us that it does not lay-in thing.  I think you could see that as the trouble today, we have materiality, we were never so unhappy.  

Back in these days, when I was a boy, hardly anyone had enough food, you could imagine that.  Things were expensive, things like car, TV, radio, airplane, boat etc, these are for very few people, say 1 percent.  But, today, everyone has more than the wealthiest man had back then.  And, we think material things will bring happiness, and we still do, we still go after them. 

Discover where the happiness is, it is not in the things,  it is the letting go of agony of not having it, desire as the agony of lack, is letting go of the desire for having it, that momentarily quiet our mind.  And, at that moment, we are just being.  Discover where in lay your happiness, you stop wasting your time, you stop pounding your head on brick wall, and you go direct for where it is, right where you are – is just you identifying with your beingness.

You see why I say it is simple?  It is the simplest thing in the universe to be, you are.  How simple it is.  Now, when I say it is easy…  What does it take for you to be you?  Nothing!  What effort does it take to be? None. 

Opposite to what you are choosing, a tremendous effort to be otherwise, to be limited, to be sick, to be chasing after specks in the world – when the whole universe it yours.  So, it is simple, it is you, your beingness, and it is easy because you are there now.

Effort got nothing to do with what I Am talking about.  Effort is all the emotions for your to go through what you are not – extremely limited physical body, spending almost all your time, trying to keep it surviving, even though it is so obvious that the body do not survive, everyone spending 99 percent of his time trying to keep the body surviving.  It is a no win proposition, and we still go after it, you see how brilliant our mind are?

Lose the mind(Ego), stop the thoughts by ridding yourself of the motivator of all the thoughts call feelings.  No feeling and you are there.  

See how simple it is.  When you so decide to let go of your feeling, it is easy.  It takes tremendous effort to hold on to it.  When you completely let them go, you become effortless right now and you become free. 

Let go of all your effort, every ounce of it.  It trying to be limited, trying to be what you are not.  It simple, you are it, and it is easy, it takes no effort, every ounce of effort you use is trying to be a limited body, trying to keep it surviving, as though you are not smart enough to know that it does not.  If you are, you just give it a just do, and you turn all your focus-attention on going free.  You would turn all your attention inwards take all your joy from you, which is the only place for where it is in the first place.  So, it is simple and it is easy, everyone fight me on that. 

I think that is my biggest danger point, I think more people want to kill me because I say it is simple and it is easier than anything else.  But, what is it that wants to kill me?  The Ego, the effort, the mind; they are all the same thing.  They so want to be limited, and when I suggest otherwise, you want to kill me. 

I don’t know why everyone chooses to hang on to the misery, and as long as you trying to get pleasure from the world, for each ounce of pleasure you take, you get pounds and pounds of pain.  Put it in another way, for each ounce of pleasure you take, you get pounded with pain.  And you are all experiencing this more or less.

Why not make a decision here and now, to go free.  And let it be in a matter of weeks, months.  And then should you want to have, you have everything without effort if you are free.  You want to do, you can do anything without effort, if you are free. 

So, there is No Giving Up, there is only a taking on more and more and more until you are infinite.  So many of you think you are going to give up, you give up your misery - that is what you give up.  But you have not convinced yourself yet, to what I am saying now, because once you do, it just in a matter of months, and you dump all the feelings, and just be your beingness

O.K.  I am taking you off the roller-coaster ride, the main one, because what we do on this ride is that we impose another roller-coaster (the brown color line in the following diagram), and really sharp down in the physical realm.

Student: So, on our way upward, are we have a choice to go into Astral and the Causal?
Lester: You should see it now.  You don’t think you have a choice.

Student: Well, I mean I don’t know anything about the Astral or Causal.
Lester:  It is all in the mind, you are experiencing both of them right now.  When you have an idea, and you see it through to completion, the moment you have it, that is done by the Causal part of you.  When thing happen immediately, that is done in the Astral part of you, like in the night-dream, whatever you think is, immediate.  And, when it takes time and years, you are in the Physical.

-----------------------  End of Transcription   --------------------------

       The reason for having a transcript in black and white is explained by one of the Lester Levenson audio clip as follows:...

“Momentum is very important in getting realizations.  You stay with something, it becomes clearer and clearer as you stay with it.  But if it starts getting clear and you move off, when you come back on to it, it's more difficult to get into it again.

And so, I am anti-talks, tapes, because of that.  I can see it doing harm in that it doesn't let you stay with something, because the conversation goes on and on and you move off one thing onto another — to another without getting a realization of any one of them.  I believe you got much more good out of reading the book…” —  Lester Levenson.
