Lesson One – A Different Way to Think

Lesson 2

A Different Way To Think

The studies of the Zen ways of the Buddha are very different from many studies. And in today's very chaotic world regaining balance is essential for survival.

And since you are enrolled in this course I am assuming you see the world differently than the average person. That you are in the process of waking up and realizing something is wrong.  Drastically wrong. But is there a solution?

None of us can change the world by ourselves. And I believe the world is going to change for the better massively very soon. But I have inside information also.

So why do I have inside information? Because I woke up a long time ago and see the world very differently than 99% of people do. But this is changing.

The Great Awakening

What is the great awakening? It began when the world was supposed to end at the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21st 2012. Many believed that was the end of times. But it was not, it was the beginning. 

So what is the Great Awakening? First it comes in two parts.

1) Political Awakening. People today, like at the fall of every civilization in history are obsessed with politics. Politics is always an EXTREME point of view, and a classic ideology of failed ideas. Awakening is when you realize these ideologies have been a lie for 2000 years. And that the middle way is the only way forward. Away from excess to true prosperity.

2) Spiritual Awakening. When the mind becomes calm, when you control your emotions and they do not control you, then you become a spiritual human being. Connecting to the inner self, the voice of God, the Christ consciousness or the Buddha mind, whatever you wish to call it. 

At this point in time enlightenment begins. This is not a realization of all things, not a complete enlightenment, but you begin to see through lies, and see the truth very clearly.


We live physically in the 3rd dimension. However our minds connect higher. Most people today think at the bottom of the 4th dimension. This is the dimension of confusion. As you pass your thinking from the 4th to 5th dimension you become Politically awake. Things begin to make sense.

For many people this is very hard. This is because your ego does not like the realization you have been lied to all your life. This will often causes people to return to their comfort zone of ignorance. One major reason is thinking out of the box upsets those who are asleep and they will verbally and physical assault you with every pathetic manipulative lie they can think of.

But once you ease to the 5th dimension you see clearly.  Then you can begin the assent to the higher levels or dimensions of thinking.

Life is Suffering

The historical Buddha of 2600 plus years ago was an prince in India. He as a child was sheltered from the real world by his parents. When he discovered the real suffering of the world he left the palace to understand the world and teach solutions to the world's suffering.

This leads to the 4 Noble Truths 

1) The truth that life is suffering
2) The truth of the CAUSE of suffering.
3) The truth of ending the suffering
4) The truth of the path to the end of suffering.

What does this all mean?

I think you will all agree life is very hard. Even for the ultra rich this is true. No one but those who understand the path can end this! Christianity will teach that Jesus is the ONLY way. Do you see this is the 4th noble truth? 

And as a generic term this means a connection to the high self! All the major religions have this path, but the names are changed. 

What is the cause of suffering? Unfulfilled desire. And everyone has the same desire, that is for MEANING or PURPOSE in life. We try to fill the void with things, but that just makes it worse. Things have no meaning. They have no value.

Life has value. A life with meaning and purpose, with responsibility has ultimate meaning.

And the end of suffering comes when we find meaning. It is really that easy. While easy to understand, but like Kyusho Jitsu, a little harder to apply.

See you in the next lesson.
