Mind the Gap – 31 May 2014
Between what you know, what you believe, and what 'is' there can be a gap.
The gap is huge here in AnerosVille. It has to do with psychic energy.
Don't talk about it. Don't acknowledge it.
Some guy shows up on the forums who is emotionally freaking out and we have no answers for him. Taboo subject here. Move along…nothing to see.
I think it was BMayfield who coined the term "Tantric Training Wheels" for the Aneros.
And we gloss over what "tantric" actually implies and think only of extended orgasms.
Most guys don't even register that things are going on under the surface…within their psyche…their energy centers….things that are changing them from the inside out. Some guys do register it and are comfortable, some simply go directly to Freak Out mode. WTF is happening to me?? Somebody please help me!!
Belief systems crashing into physical manifestations.
There's a saying I love: "The mystic swims in that which the psychotic is drowning"
I'm not an expert, I'm not a trained mental health care professional. What I am, is experienced in some few mystical practices. Which is to say that, I spend at least some of my time walking in the gap.
I'm frustrated by the lack of understanding here. I'm ready to create my own website addressing these issues so I only have to type this kind of advice out once, then just point a link to it. "here, this may help you…no one will talk about it here…" That kind of thing.
The gap has bit me…and more than once. The outcome…the transformation…is always positive. But it Fuccking SUCKS being in the gap, especially when you don't know what you're in. If you know…if you acknowledge…there are at least tools that will ease your suffering and get you through faster.
If all this sounds like bullshit to you, so far, then thanks for hearing me out and be well.
If you're interested in more information here are some thoughts:
"Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis" by Stanislav Grof
or just Google "spiritual emergence" or "spiritual emergency".
We benefit so much from Aneros. But it can be a "tiger by the tail" too.Source: https://www.aneros.com/blogs/mind-the-gap/
