As usual a comprehensive report on the wisdom learned in this lesson. I also noticed in this post that you shared many “sudden” insights based on your reflections and this is a positive development. I will comment on some items you posted.

ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT

Regarding meditation, I practice daily every morning about one hour but, for some reasons I am not able to fully grasp, I do not have that same capacity at evening. In fact, it is easier for me to meditate in the morning; however, knowing it was like that also at the beginning for my morning meditation practice, I am gradually developing the same practical patterns I have learned to arrive at the regularity with the morning practice. I believe this is related to the Arius and I am working along that line to improve the regularity of my night meditation practice. Informal meditation is an important aspect to support our practice in that sense.

FEEDBACK

Indeed the morning hours –especially early between 4 and 6 are most recommended simply because the body and mind have rested from sleeping and that is a buffer from the previous day’s activities. At that time the mind is more disposed to meditating and also it is the quietest time of the 24 hour daily cycle of human activities in any given timezone due to the cycle of the human physiology. Therefore it is fitting to be awake when regular people are sleeping and sleeping when they are awake. The ideal is to let this practice “color” the mind the rest of the day and engender an informal meditative experience that permeates the whole day and then gets re-strengthened the next morning and gradually enveloping and surpassing the activities of the day even while they are going on and then the activities take on a shedy quality that augments the formal practice.

 

ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT

I also practice the Tjef Neteru regularly in the morning and the only thing is that I have been learning from the books and the DVD on the postures without really proper guidance from someone. I sometimes wonder if I have been practicing correctly. I would welcome the very next opportunity to have my practice evaluated. It is important that time is setup as well to practice in the afternoon and this is something I am working on.

 

FEEDBACK

Indeed you can seek specific assistance on the next conference we may see you. In the meantime the practices are generally safe unless overdone but if practicing along with the videos that should not pose a problem.

ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT

Living by Maat represents the area of most difficulty as it does not really have a formal time to practice. It is alternately a good way to consider moments of day to day life as opportunities to practice. One of the aspect I practice in real time so to speak is to manage anger. I experienced it is not enough to have the willingness not to feel angry; despite our ability to perceive it before manifestation, there are situations where we may see it coming and yet not able to contend.

FEEDBACK

This is indeed a challenging area of practice but only until the central wisdom of Maat is grasped and placed into action, namely that Maat is a way of life so every moment is an opportunity to be thinking or reflecting upon or acting on Maatian principles. When the main tenets and wisdom of Maat are made part of the character of the person itself then the practice does not necessitate long thinking or reflections but becomes spontaneous as to the proper courses to take in life. Until then it is necessary to exert effort.

 

ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT

Overall, what stands for me in the process is the willingness to master that art of transformation but preferably to be able to give free way to the spirit to express itself so that its expression is not clouded by ignorance. As I can say, there are new ways of practice that is revealed simply or you can see that a theme of a book that we used to read every day suddenly is revealed to us surprisingly even though we’ve been reading it quite a few times. It also happens in the prayers where one key understanding is revealed suddenly.

 

FEEDBACK

As I started to say earlier, what is regarded as “sudden” is really purification to an extent that allows intuitional insights to pass through the filters of ego. They may occur some time after being in deep thought and finding no resolutions or after weeks or years reflecting and studying some teachings and then deeper insights flash in the mind. They do not occur with mind in an ordinary thought process but rather come with quick and clear knowing about a subject that was previously troubling or unclear. Of course the biggest intuitional realization is the nature of self-identity beyond time and space.
