  • Questions on state of freedom/imperturbability.

    Hale says the ultimate goal of the Sedona method is to reach a state of freedom. I have a few questions about this state. Although it's rare to find people who have reached this so I hope someone can answer.

    1: What does this state feel like in terms of happiness, for example would you be at peak happiness at all times or is it more of a relaxed state?

    2: What does the statement you can choose to do or not do whatever you want mean? There are allusions to there being no free wil as you make spiritual gains, this seems to counteract what has been taught before.


    3: Roughly how long can it take to reach this state? I've had some experiences of bliss from the Sedona method after around 6 months of work, but recognise patience is required. I know t takes some people decades of work on meditation to start releasing ego, how long may the Sedona method take to allow you to reach a state of permanent freedom?

    I can only quote Lester - it appears it took him 3 months - and he was highly motivated in his explorations due to the medics telling him he did not have long to live

      Hi honestowl!

      You are the freedom that you seek.

      That freedom is right here right now.

      That freedom is not affected or altered by by anything. It already is permanent. That which is really you, freedom, love, joy, infinite, is permanent.

      Try to stop being free. No, really, stop being free right now!

      Many of us have a tendency to be more fascinated with the illusion and the story of the bodymind called Delilah or Mary, or Marco, or Brigitta, or Arun or __________ (fill in your name) or etc.

      There is no one size fits all answer about how long anything takes anyone. Bliss, grief, fear, any AGFLAP or things like success or failure are not reflections of what we are. They are just reactions to the story and the circumstances of the story.

      There are always contradictions in everything. Free will vs self determination are contradictory. Anything you can think of, feel, perceive, conceive, or remember, all have opposites. Everything is dualistic.

      Q: What do you have to be patient about? What are you waiting for?

      Could you welcome any waiting?

      Is there any wanting to hold on to or let go of waiting?

      Could you let go of wanting to hold on to or let go of waiting?

      Q: Is there any wanting there to be permanence?

      If yes, welcome that.

      What want does wanting permanence arise from?

      Welcome that want?

      Could you let go of wanting that?

      Could you let go of wanting to get that want from permanence?

      Your question about choosing to do or not do something has to do with allowing yourself to just be...to be fully present with doing or not doing something. We tend to torment ourselves about doing and not doing. And that's one of the many ways we look away from what we truly are. "We are not human doings. We are human beings." That's an old teaching that points us in the direction of our own beingness.

      Best,
      Delilah

        Hi zannierose!

        Yes, facing the death of his body Lester was able to let go of everything in three months. He also was able to experience unconditional love in three months. Some folks find that facing death is a kind of distillation of one's experiences. Some have reported that facing death is the ultimate invitation to let go. What we have discovered in releasing is that we don't need to face death or to die in order to let go, completely.

        What folks often forget about Lester's story is that he was a seeker long before he got the diagnosis of death. He was always looking to see through the illusion.

        Eventually, what happens as we keep letting go is we also start to see through the illusion. We stop being fascinated by the illusory stuff and bask in our infinitude. It's not that we don't have preferences for feelings or outcomes. It's that we are not fooled by any of that stuff anymore. We are imperturbable. And being imperturbable does not preclude getting distracted temporarily by the temporal. See, LOL, the contradictions are endless!

        Warmly,
        Delilah
