Before anything i want to thanks Lujan for this opportunity he offers to us. I would like to write in my essay about how the Lujan’s teachings and concepts start making me change the way i act in the world and how i knew about the forum.
One of the first things that shocked me were the information pertinent to the hyerogliphs, there i saw how the preoccupation is one of the first things that keep us cloaked, therefore without evolution, and the preoccupation in me comes from different corners, i.e. from wasting my time doing activities that only make me waste my energy and the precious gift that life is, preocuppation comes from not eating healthy, from not doing exercise, things that of course will make me feel more happy and healthy and will prevent disease, well this suppose to not make me feel guilty but after some months fat start to appear and the preoccupation also.
Another concept i want to mention it is the asexual stance, here in my country, the TV and the culture in general makes a lot of emphasis in the sex, all my friends included me, our approach to the other genre it is always marked to try to take the person to the bed, so with this concept Lujan teach us a different approach, one with more deep respect to our friends and everybody in general, when i explain this to some friends they say to me ‘why? You are Young you better become a priest!’, they don’t understand that we need to respect them as if they be our parents or teachers and we need also to control ourselves and thoughts. It is not a easy task but it is worthy in all senses. There are a lot more insights for me in TAOSPP book but i only mention this.
In the 3rd eye book Lujan go beyond this in helping us when he teach us the mirror technique, he tell us to listen and be of service to the person in front of us, this will take us away from the self-obssesive-way-of-be, this technique looks simple really but i don’t have any friend that do that, everybody wants to put something of themselves, if don’t be the center of the talk. So this teaching it is beautiful because makes us learn to listen and be more gentle with our fellows.
The way i knew about the fórum was for me kind of magical. The first time i was Reading TAOSPP i was also exploring the web, and i left a comment in one shamanic youtube video, and the next day i saw i have a new friend because of the comment i left and when i saw his profile i found that he is a Lujan’s student and i thought wow i am Reading now this book and by exploring the web i found a student of Lujan, he told me what he was practicing in movements and meditation and i thought ‘ i want to do this practices too’, next thing he did he introduced me to the Parallel Perception Forum a place where Lujan itself has helping me with his posts and a place where Lujan give me some of his time trough a Skype encounter and a place where i knew about the Raw food wich has helping me a lot in my eating habits.
I want to finish by saying why i am in this application, it is because I would like to experiment the Completion Hyerogliph, i want the one in my dreams comes here in this reality and the one here go beyond its confines, beyond this reality.
