Observation, judgement, and execution are the three basic factors of dissolution.Thus, in meditation, patiently observe what you felt, thought, and did. Examine those experiences to determine who was acting in you, and how those actors took control of your three brains.
First: one observes oneself. Second: judgement is passed. Third: execution takes place.
In war, spies are first observed; secondly, they are judged; thirdly, they are shot.
Self-discovery and self-revelation exist in our interrelationships. Therefore, whosoever renounces living together with his fellowmen also renounces self-discovery.
Any incident in life, regardless of how insignificant it may seem, undoubtedly has as its cause an intimate actor within us, a psychic aggregate, an “I.”
Self-discovery is possible when we are in a state of alert perception, alert novelty.
Any “I” discovered flagrantly must be carefully observed in our mind, heart, and sexual center.
Any “I” of lust could manifest itself in the heart as love and in the mind as an ideal. Yet, as we pay attention to the sexual center, we may feel a certain morbid, unmistakable excitement.
The judgment of any “I” must be definitive. We need to sit it down on the bench of the accused and judge it mercilessly.
Evasion, justification, and consideration must be eliminated if in reality we want to be conscious of the “I” that we struggle to extirpate from our psyche.
Execution is different. It would not be possible to execute any “I” without previously observing it and judging it.
