From the time I was in high school, I've been captivated by the intricacies of human psychology. As I delved into personality profiles, particularly the MBTI, I was astonished by how accurately my type (INTJ) described me. This realization sparked a deep desire to not only understand myself, but also to grasp the inner workings of others.
As I continued to uncover patterns and insights that others couldn't seem to see, I felt a growing sense of purpose. However, despite my increased understanding, I still felt unfulfilled. It wasn't until I stumbled upon a book called Power vs. Force by David Hawkins that my life took a dramatic turn.
Hawkins' description of the scale of human consciousness shattered my belief in reason and logic as the highest levels of perception. I came to understand that life is governed by something far greater than myself, and that surrendering my personal will was the key to true happiness. This realization opened a whole new world of perception, and I embarked on a spiritual journey.
Around the same time, a spiritual mentor introduced me to Carlos Castaneda's teachings about his apprenticeship with Don Juan. This is where I discovered the Fear-Clarity-Power paradigm, which became the foundation of my teachings. Don Juan's concept of natural enemies along our spiritual journey resonated with me deeply, and I realized that overcoming Fear was the first step in achieving greater consciousness.
Through the painful process of facing my own fears, I was able to achieve Clarity. This was a time of intellectual and abstract insight, but also confusion, as I saw into things but not into my own soul's intentions. Eventually, I was able to let go of this Clarity and move into Power - the level of creation and action. It's here that I consciously created my life based on what mattered most to me, and began living in alignment with my soul's guidance.
Paradoxically, Power must also be surrendered in order to achieve a state of completion and peace. This feeling of wholeness is the ultimate goal for any spiritual aspirant, and I am dedicated to guiding others through the Fear-Clarity-Power paradigm in order to achieve deeper levels of oneness.
