I’d like to share my blue collar enlightenment back stage insights about teachers (me included occasionally) who do a whole lotta staring and pausing and the necessity for balance with this teaching tool and style. You’ve heard it called different names- transmission, transference, morphogenic fields, mirror neurons, speaking from stillness, etc. But what is it really? Is it necessary? How does it benefit or not benefit you? Running Time: 9:58

The 3 steps you fail to do??? No beating around the bush. Here they are in order of importance:
1 being exposed to love over and over again
2 seeing fully how mind/ego/”I”-dentity is sabatoging your heart’s true longing
3 overcoming the “little-ole-me” syndrome and becoming equal to your teacher
Here’s how ya fix it:
I find it very odd that humanity still retains an old school resistance to and distrust of spiritual teachers, gurus or religious authority figures. We haven’t let go of those old wounds or deep fears which over the eons have collectively lodged themselves into our unconscious. We are still throwing the baby out with the bath water. We are still shooting our own foot- to avoid conflict. It’s an adolescent disposition reminicient of the teenager who wants to skip school. So if you would, I’d like to take a minute to examine this old paradigm, deconstruct it and rebuild it in the light of modern day neuroscience. If spiritual growth interests you- being anti-guru, anti-religious or anti-spiritual authority is hogwash and flies in the face of today’s neuroscience.
Okay. Let’s talk about what I call transference and what a lot of teachers call transmission. There are two ways I can approach this topic: 1. From a pseudo-scientific hypothetical point of view & 2. From my own experiential point of view. I’ll attempt to do both. It’s an important topic and one that I think a lot of people are ignorant of, confused by, afraid of, or wigged out by. So let’s shed a little light here so you can stop whining about it, ignoring it, or denying it and can start taking advantage of it.
First of all, let me say- I am biased. I believe in transference; I sat with teachers who offered it; I felt it; benefited from it; and last but not least woke up because of it. No pansy-ass milk-toast opinion here about transference. If Walmart were having a holiday black friday midnight special sale on transference I’d be first in line, and I’d beat old ladies out of the way to get it ( Just kidding – gotta live up to P.I.E. namesake every now and then)
