1. Every day, develop your Self-observation from moment to moment. At the end of each day, reflect on how you did.
2. Every day, do this preliminary meditation exercise. Adopt a relaxed, upright posture. Carefully relax all three brains (body, heart, intellect). Then visualize a brilliant sun in the center of your brain. No matter what distracts you, return to concentrating on the visualization of the brilliant sun. Do this for 30-60 minutes every day.
The lectures are also playing continuously on Gnostic Radio:
"Whosoever imitates does not learn; whosoever imitates becomes an automaton, and that is all... A mind that knows only how to imitate is mechanical; it is a machine that functions but is incapable of creating, that does not know how to truly think, because it only repeats, and that is all."
