    This review is from: The Beginners Guide to Quantum Psychology (Paperback)

    Oh man, I really got into this book. It’s very enjoyable to read though the vocabulary that they’ve made up to describe what they’re talking about gets a little complicated at the end. I’m going to have to read it again.

    Basically, Quantum Psychology attributes most of our unhappiness to what they call Separation Trauma. You got your umbilical cord cut and now you’re a freaked out creature slinging that thing around trying to latch it onto to somebody or something whether that be a relationship, cause, job, etc. “Oh this will bring me joy, happiness, security, comfort, and make me feel complete.” But then something happens and that thing doesn’t do it for you anymore. So, you sling that [thing] around again and latch onto something else. And this goes on over and over and over. Quantum Psychology teaches you how to not sling that umbilical cord around anymore. Cool stuff.

    The second half of the book is like Hinduism without the holyman priesthood. He describes everything as being and being from the ONE SUBSTANCE. In Hinduism this one substance is called Brahman. I really like this but as I said it takes a lot of effort to relate to the vocabulary that they’ve come up with. But I still think it’s interesting anyway.

    The most beautiful part to me is what they call the Essential Qualities. “Quantum Psychology defines Essential Qualities as pure, or as having no subject or object. Pure being, pure love, pure observation or pure knowing – these are all Essential qualities.” I can’t explain this stuff properly because I’m not good at the vocabulary but the word “essential” here does not mean “necessary” it means “from or of Essence” which is a quality that is described in Chapter 12 of the book. The beauty of this stuff though is that I’ve only experienced that pure love just a few times in my life. Love with no object or subject. If your with somebody, it’s like your both “in” love but not in love with each other – just “in” love. It’s a really amazing thing to experience – and I’ve never heard it described before this. Hmmmm, maybe it’s a everyday, ordinary experience common to everyone and I’ve just never heard it described before. That would be cool.

    Anyway, I really got into this stuff and I plan to re-read the book soon. I also hope to read some of the other books on Quantum Psychology to get more of a feel for it. But as I said,I don’t particularly like the vocabulary because it puts too much of a strain on your brain to get what they’re talking about.

    ~~~

    “Know thyself.” This 175 page book is invaluable for two reasons.

    (I am trying to capture the tone of this book for you.)

    First reason:

    It establishes Being aware as a human, in 8 dimensions.

    4 are familiar: external, thinking, emotional & animal.

    4 are more subtle.

    Essence, the condensation of the one great soul, the condensation of the void of undifferentiated consciousness.

    I am ______ (fill in the blank), the usual one, and, I Am, which is preverbal, prior to essence, unaware of the Big Emptiness.

    Collective Unconscious and its Archetypes, the condensation of emptiness, the condensation of the void of undifferentiated consciousness contracting to “Physics Dimensions.”

    The Not-I-I, where the Not-I observer<=>observed dyad is no longer: the Not-I-I is just Pure Witnessing, aware of the Big Emptiness.

    Before the 8 dimensions, here is the void of undifferentiated consciousness which does not know itself, pure no-thing-ness, no awareness.

    Beneath the void, beneath no awareness, is the Nameless Absolute.

    When you awaken (up) all this disappears as if by magic.

    Second reason:

    Pages 19 through 70 show how we naturally fill in those blanks in the I am ______. This is a normal and natural part of Being, human, which is why “Know thyself.” is recommended.

    These individual collections of subconscious habit patterns need to be discovered by each unique individual (it takes a trustable village).

    If not uncovered, the energy used in subconsciously filling in those blanks prevents us from having the energy to experience the more subtle dimensions that are explored in the First reason.

    (I hope you got the book’s tone from the above.)

    ~~~

    All by itself, completely exploring this second reason is more than enough reason for anyone to buy this book.

    In short, for those of us who, underneath, feel there is “something more,” and then later as we learn how such formerly subconscious habit patterns become conscious, energy is freed up so the Advaitist subtlety can be stably established.

    ~~~

    I give this book 4.9 stars. I would give it 5 stars if it had gone on past the first and absolutely necessary step of freeing up enough energy for establishing the subtle dimensions & the Void & the Nameless Absolute.

    The next steps, “coming back/down/here from” what is established by absorbing both parts of this book – probably 6 months to 3 years to really digest it – the next steps for those who do not choose to “hide in the Nameless Absolute,” the next steps are currently beginning to be explored, for example, see http://www.livingessence.com/index.html or http://www.wakingdown.org/

    For the books offered at both websites, please buy them here at amazon.com

    Thanks for hearing me.
