We’ve got a fascinating bit of controversy over at the Enlightenment Life List, with Comments 1004-1013. You know me, friends. I’m a spiritual teacher, have been to the best of my ability for 43 years now. So I’ll seize the teachable moment.
Imagine that you live in a wonderful part of Asia, Blog-Buddies, a city with a high proportion of active spiritual seekers. Often you pass by the center of a famous spiritual leader, Swami Nithyananda.
At this time in your history, spiritual growth is, pretty much, your life. So you study the photo on display. Could this man become a helper to you, providing inspiration and words of truth? Might he even become a guru to you?
First, being very sane, you use your common sense. What on earth is this Swami wearing? You notice his fancy costumes and jewelry. To you, this clashes with the very meaning of being a renunciate within the sacred traditons of Hinduism. Red flag!
Next, you realize that you don’t take to his photo. Stage One Energetic Literacy: No particular skills, just raw talent.
You have a feeling, catch a vibe. On this fellow, the vibe isn’t good.
Thus, the mystery continues. Who is this man, really? Does he deserve a sacred trust from you?
“Sacred trust” is no understatement. A teacher, or healer, physician, or therapist, or professional astrologer, or professional offering guidance of any kind… consequences of this person’s work could shape your life for months or years to come.
Or you might be asking yourself about a potential date. Or employer. Or used car salesperson. Or a politician, campaigning for an election.
“Does this person deserve my sacred trust?”
When you don’t yet have energetic literacy skills, what can you do?
This is precisely the sort of mystery I had in mind when inviting you’all to our latest contest here at “Deeper Perception Made Practical”: New Mystery Solving Face Reading Contest
If a public figure is a mystery, face reading is such a great place to start using skills of energetic literacy. One reason? It is a great confidence builder.
Many of us have been thoroughly confused by The Myth About Auras described in “Aura Reading Through All Your Senses.” We have come to believe — incorrectly, it turns out — that researching auras to gain accurate, useful information (which is what “Aura Reading” means) requires “Seeing the colours.” So untrue!
At least, thank goodness, you haven’t heard for years that you cannot trust your ability to see a person’s eyebrows or chin.
Just like aura reading, face reading comes down to an equation:
Perception + interpretation = a face reading
Just as, using a different system for Deeper Perception, perception + interpretation = an aura reading
I’m going to research Swami Nithyananda as an example of mystery solving face reading.
Bring on face reading to research Swami Nithyananda
Will this be useful for researching him for my Enlightenment Life List? No.
To me, that definitely requires Stage Three Energetic Literacy. One must be able to research all the way through to chakra databanks, and then there are certain criteria that I use for researching Enlightenment — described in that post, plus links are provided to additional articles on this very controversial idea of researching spiritual Enlightenment.
Frankly, I don’t quite get why it would be considered controversial to research whether or not an influential public figure is spiritually Enlightened. Because sacred trust is involved. Why have one’s best recourse consist of checking out jewelry and maybe gut vibe? Over a matter of sacred trust?!
Why trust popular reputation, either? One defining characteristic of Earth School is that the labels are lousy.
Many a “reject” candidate for the Enlightenment Life List has been rich or famous or good looking or some combination thereof… yet so very far from Enlightened. Sometimes, doing my best to be tactful while saying “No,” the most common response to a candidate proposed for the list, I go through an internal process like this:
“Ahem, um, sorry, uh, don’t wanna hurt your feelings or disillusion you. But what the heck were you thinking? Don’t you get that there is a difference between sex appeal and having every particle of your being in more-or-less ecstatic love with God?”
So, yes, let’s bring on some energetic literacy skills. With the system of Face Reading Secrets(R), the insights from physiognomy supply enough depth to be considered Stage Three Energetic Literacy. Not suitable for researching Enlightenment but good for plenty else.
In keeping with my New Year’s Resolution to spend just a couple of hours blogging on any given day, including posts and reading comments and responding to them, here is how far we will get today.
Look at the photo at the top of today’s post. Start looking at his physical face, not his expression. Next post I will be using a different photo to go into detail about talents and potential challenges, typical with the system taught in “The NEW Power of Face Reading.”
Below, share any reactions to how far we’ve gone into the notion that face reading is a very accessible resource for Deeper Perception, for solving mysteries, even for solving mysteries around relationships that involve sacred trust.
