I am shortly to depart the snowy mountains of Colorado.
It is a beautiful place, with scenery so epic that no painting or picture could ever be more than a shadow of the majesty of nature.
And nature is an interesting thing, is it not? As I was snowboarding down Buttermilk Mountain I stopped, casting my eyes across the silent grandeur of the mountains ahead.
I looked at my glove, and closer at the minute flakes of powdery snow that covered it, and it got me thinking.
No two snowflakes are alike, they say.
And no two mountains are the same.
But in a way, snowflakes and mountains are identical.
You see, the quality of difference is a quality everything shares. Everything is exactly different, exactly unique.
There is a quality of infinity to all things that never disappears, no matter how close we look, nor how far away we stand.
That shifting infinity though - it is not a uniform thing. The underlying infinity of reality itself forms and reforms always, and never loses cohesion.
And just as one form may disappear - a snowflake, a mountain or a man, that quality of infinity which is present in all things... which is the true nature of all things... remains just as a wave can collapse without destroying the ocean.
What is this awareness that I feel? What is it?
Because I'll tell you what it feels like - it feels as if I'm tapping into that shifting infinity, and that the shifting infinity is the ocean upon which the 'waves' exist.
Could it be that the human brain is not a processor, but in truth a kind of transmitter that hooks up our animal forms directly to the shifting infinity of the quantum universe itself?
It seems to me that the true challenge of the modern human condition lies in managing to escape the linear processing which the human brain is poor at, and instead use our brains as they 'want' to be used... as organic pattern-recognition quantum computing devices.
This process does not require any thought or any effort, and it massively accelerates the power of you as an individual in every circumstance you can imagine yourself in.
Professional, personal, social, sexual... whatever.
To begin to undermine the 'analytical compulsion' which is the bane of all living humans is to instantly awaken a level of personal power which is quite simply indescribably potent.
This power will allow you to charm, to command. To understand, to realize. To experience life at a pitch and intensity that you'd never believe possible, and to generate lighting reflexes for seeing, and seizing, opportunities that will make your life into something approaching a Hollywood movie script.
What's interesting to me is that most people who find this truth simply 'Zen-out' on a mountain top, or smoke pot and say Om.
What I propose is that anyone who wishes to live a life of glory throws themselves into honing their Zen as they would hone a sword to a razor edge.
Let us kick something off, and deploy enlightenment like a nuclear assault on the very foundations of fear, hate and arrogance.
Just remember, people.
It begins at home.
Get yourself in order. Begin your training.
Cultivate the power of reality itself.
