                  THE GREAT WORK OF LIBERATION 
                         by C.B. Willis

The Great Work of Liberation, also known as "the Work," involves two
aspects:  1) liberation FROM the limitations of social and personal
conditioning, and  2) liberation TO the life of conscious spirit,
the life of creative spirit unlimited.

The goal of the Work is to eliminate the false, and to align with,
exemplify, and embody the true.  In the tradition of Shankara, we
move from the Unreal to the Real.  

The first part of the Work is purification, therapy, clearing,
processwork, healing, personal transformation.  The Bhagavad Gita
calls this Work the "purification of the sheaths [koshas, vehicles,
bodies] toward transparency."  The second part of the Work is
spiritual (co-)creatorship.

The game called "the Work" is to eliminate anything that stands in
the way of a free flow of spirit in your life.  Clairvoyantly this
looks like eliminating grey masses in your space, allowing the 
gold light of spirit to radiate and prevail everywhere.

The Work is a path of accelerated, conscious evolution.  Spirit is
already perfect on its own plane, however spirit when embodied has 
challenges of recollection, insight, balance, expression, and
manifestation.  These challenges are addressed in the Work.

Positive change and transformation are always in the direction of
more freedom.  The question to ask in any situation is, "Where is
the freedom?"  If there isn't any freedom, you've allowed yourself
to fall into a trap.  Life itself is free, life is liberty, life is
about freedom, greater and greater freedom and proportionate
responsibility, more space, more light, more expansiveness, more
play, more truth, more beauty, higher ethics.  


Three Circles

Gurdjieff noted three "circles" of Humanity:

The outer, exoteric circle that deals with ordinary worldly life,
facts, events, objects, emotions, ordinary mind, personality.  This
is the Domain of Fact.  

The middle, mesoteric circle deals with philosophy, psychology,
religion, the fine arts, social sciences, literature.  This is the
Domain of Value, where a person has a possibility of coming in
contact with, and recollecting, something of the Good, the True, and
the Beautiful, the Ultimate Ideas.  This is the domain where virtues
are built in, where good character is formed, where one builds a
soul.  Some Work begins in this circle, the Work of making key
distinctions, avoiding fallacies of logic, orienting one's attention
to the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, identifying social
conditioning, beginning to think for oneself, thus becoming an
individual instead of one of the mass.

The inner, esoteric circle addresses Spirit and energy as such.
This is the Domain of Harmony.  Here the person works consciously as
spirit, wields energy, consciously creates universes, and harmonizes
all parts of the whole.  

Each inner circle includes understanding and mastery of the outer
circles, but the converse is not true.  Each circle builds on the the
other(s).  

A person needs to build a solid foundation on the outer two circles
before he can enter into the inner circle in a stable and balanced
manner, because without the proper foundation, especially in
character and ethics, the path may take undesirable and even bizarre
turns, and the person may emerge as a caricature of a human being, a
mockery of an initiate rather than the real thing, and may be a
danger to himself and others.

All world religions have an esoteric core of initiates who work with
Spirit and energy as such.  These initiates form what has been
variously called the "Hierarchy," the "Great White Brotherhood" (no
connection to racial ancestry), the "Saints," or the Buddhist
"Nirmanakayas."  This path is open on a gradient scale to all who
would qualify at various levels.  It is an "inner plane" (invisible
dimensions) esoteric path.  Its members include both embodied and
disembodied spirits.  This inner core of initiates is not
necessarily to be found in any one or more worldly organizations,
although some will find access points there and trace the golden
threads of truth they find back to inner plane group(s).

Following various yoga paths purify the mind, actions, and emotions
while a person communes with God.  Jnana yoga is the path of mind,
realization, cognition, and the limits of logic.  Karma yoga is the
path of action, dedication of all action to God, and renunciation of
the fruits or results of action.  Bhakti yoga is the path of emotion
and feeling, love of God, devotion to God, higher aspiration and
idealism, feeling as related to the movement of Spirit, and
renunciation of worldly emotions and attachments.  Yogas may be
practiced by those of universal consciousness in conjunction with
any world religion, and are not restricted to Hinduism or Vedanta.  


Metaphysics

Aristotle called metaphysics the study of "being qua being" or
being as such.  But literally, "metaphysics" means "beyond the
physical."

"Esoteric" means hidden from ordinary sight, but perceptible to
spiritual sight or clairvoyance (clear seeing).  The esoteric deals
with metaphysics, the study of what is beyond the physical,
particularly those things related to the workings of spirit and
energy.  

How much of what IS, is metaphysical?  How big is the study of
metaphysics?  How important?

I speculate that some 99% of what IS, is metaphysical, for
example: ideas, feelings, emotions, ideals, goals, intentions,
desire, values, meaning, importance, significance, love, devotion,
order, science, harmony, spirit, God, angels, ethics, aesthetics,
experience, relationships, context, logical space, quality,
quantity/number, substance, life, process, competence, virtue,
justice, learning, education, realization, cognition, creation,
intuition, knowing, being, impressions, vision, mission, causes,
logic, inspiration, beliefs, decisions, conclusions, evaluations,
judgments, opinions, solutions, vows, commitment, power, ability,
passion, attention, interest, and the abstract notion of matter.  

Thus metaphysics is a vast subject, an important subject, and
deserves much more attention than it gets in just about any
sector for being a fundamental and driving subject.


Useful Distinctions

It's useful to distinguish different aspects of man.
The primary distinctions are:  
spirituality vs. worldliness, 
the eternal vs. the temporal, 
the real vs. the unreal.


Man's Nature

Man's nature according to esoteric psychology includes.

- [Universal Spirit (God)].  Man exists within the all-inclusive
  Life of God, All-that-Is.

- Individual spirit.

- Soul (the marriage of the spirit and matter in the human being,
        "residing" in the heart chakra, includes higher emotions).

- Personality 
  (the worldly self, the acquired nature, survival strategy, 
   outer expression, image, includes ego-stuff).
  -  Ordinary Mind.
  -  Lower Emotions.
  -  Etheric Body. 
     (the subtle energy counterpart to the physical body).
  -  Physical Body.


Definition: The Etheric

The "etheric" is the subtlest aspect of the material world, and as
such is a key to the interface between spirit and matter.  The
"etheric body: is also a "subtle body" interface in the human being
between emotions/thoughts (kama-manas) and the physical body, and
between spirit/soul and the physical body.


Definition: Feelings

"Feelings" include: the "felt sense" at one's core, etheric body
sensations, intuitive impressions, perceptions, emotions, ethical
sense, aesthetic sense, sense of truth, appreciation of meaning and
nuances of meaning, linguistic intuitions, perception of intention,
and physical sensations.  

In exchanges with others, the correct sense of the word "feeling(s)"
must be gotten from linguistic context and perception of intention.
If you're uncertain what someone means by the word "feeling," ask
rather than guess or assume.

When Spirit moves powerfully through a local space, a person may *feel* a
"quickening", a felt-sense within their etheric body that announces
the presence of Spirit.  This quickening is sometimes called "rain."


Models of Mind

Mind (ordinary mind) is a structure built of 1) elements and 2)
their relationships, plus various other epiphenomena, resting on the
underlying reality of spiritual consciousness and substance.  The
structure of mind could be variously modeled as:

- a ball of yarn;
- an aggregate or set of aggregates (Buddhism);
- a web of belief (Quine);
- a network of ideas and experiences (Gerbode); 
- a spherical web; 
- a tumbleweed; 
- a tinker-toy construct; 
- a configuration of sundry odds and ends, such as you'd
    get from sweeping a neglected garage floor: dust, dirt,
    animal hair, nuts and bolts, nails, rubber bands, laundry detergent,
    twigs, fertilizer, pencils, pebbles, cat litter, sawdust, etc. --
    the "sculpture" that ends up in your dustpan. 
- a neural net; (Restak)
- a reticulum (Allen); 
- a jigsaw puzzle, where we fill in "missing pieces" of 
    understanding.


Models of "Stuff" 

Models of emotional "stuff," personal "case" history, "charge,"
error, trauma, and out-of-balance conditions can piggyback on the
models for mind above.  

A person's "stuff" can be mapped or overlaid onto the basic model
and depicted as "lit-up," buzzing areas.  

"Stuff" can also be depicted as space for the missing pieces in the
jigsaw puzzle model.


Skandhas: The Aggregates

Buddhist psychology identifies 5 aggregates [skandhas], the sum
total of which is personality.  The 5 aggregates are: 1)
corporeality or form [rupa]; 2) sensation [vedana]; 3) perception
[samjna]; 4) mental formations, including volition, attention,
discrimination, effort, concentration, compulsion, emotional states
[samskara]; and 5) consciousness [vijnana].  

The skandhas are regarded as without essence [anatman], impermanent
[anitya], empty [shunya], and full of suffering [dukkha].  They lead
to attachments and suffering.  

>From the skandhas of worldly personality [ego], Buddhism derives its
theory of no-self [anatman]: the skandhas are impermanent and
therefore unreal - a conclusion not unlike that of Buddhism's
historical predecessor Hinduism and its western contemporaries, the
Greek philosophers.  Buddhism further concludes that what we call
existence is just a process of mental and physical phenomena to
which we become attached and identified, and so we suffer.  


Religious Diversity in "the Work"

For Buddhism, the aggregates taken together form personality, an
ephemeral set of experiences and ideas that has no reality in fact.
Because of attachments and identifications, we can say that Buddhist
personality is analogous to personal case history and the charge on
that history.  For Buddhism, all of worldly personality or ego has
charge or is closely related to charge.  

Therefore, a goal of Buddhism is realization that there is no-self,
that the worldly, ego-self is a delusion.  Reality is then at once
an emptiness [shunyata, empty of the impermanent], and a suchness
[tathata, the absolute true nature of all things, the Buddha
nature].

Christians, Moslems, and Hindus would likely call this goal the
elimination of worldliness, which clears the way for a free flow of
Spirit and allows the Christ consciousness and goodwill to prevail.

Discussion of a permanent, eternal self or being [atman, individual
spirit] now becomes problematic and difficult to compare across
world religions, however we can note that the impersonal Buddha
nature of wisdom and compassion is that which knows the impermanence
and unreality of all worldly things, and this Buddha nature resides
in all beings as the Christ consciousness or Krishna consciousness
or Brahman resides in all beings, and is omnipresent.

Perception of the scope of "the Work" to be done may differ somewhat
from one religion to another.  Some may prefer to leave the ordinary
mind and worldly personality in place, remove charged areas
illogics, dissolve "ego-stuff," relegate ordinary mind and worldly
personality to secondary assisting roles, and unfold and express the
spiritual nature to its fullest.  Other religions, such as Buddhism,
have as an agenda to eliminate the ego [defined as personality,
skandhas, attachments, identifications] altogether.  However, all
agree that spiritual life is primary and that worldliness as an
orientation or distraction is delusion.


"The Work" and Ordinary Mind

There are six "Work" tasks regarding ordinary mind [or mental
formations]: 

1)  Remove the charge or upset on charged areas, i.e., areas of
trauma, emotional pain or mental confusion; 

2) Train the person to see limited cultural programming for what it
is, and to see how he has unthinkingly adopted limited programming
in the past;

3)  Correct specific instances of fallacies of logic and
educate regarding logical fallacies; 

4)  End usurpation by ordinary mind of other aspects of the person, 
and return ordinary mind to its proper role as an observer of energy
and Spirit, with a linguistic competency to be used by Spirit in
naming the essence and deep structure of things.  

5)  Train the person to identify, then remove or transform,
abusive/oppressive/suppressive influences in his life.
Additionally, train the person to retrieve spiritual substance
freely given to abusive individuals or apparently stolen by abusive
individuals, or otherwise left by the person in past times and
places, and bring it up into present time.  This is also the goal of
shamanic "soul retrieval."

The Work may selectively employ ordinary mind, and consciously align
ordinary mind with spiritual mind, in order to accomplish the above
Work.


Ego

"Ego" in this [my] system is defined as the false self, the sum
total of ignorance, defendedness, denial, armoring, arrogance,
unwillingness, obnoxiousness, rudeness, neglect, lack of caring,
selfishness, stubbornness, closed-mindedness, lack of questioning,
garrulousness, overbearing, dominating, controlling, manipulating,
calculating, strategizing, seducing, abusing, fearful,
self-promoting, self-effacing, permissive, insulting, insulted,
offensive, offended, separative, personality, ordinary mind,
pretense, lies, anger, irritation, image conscious, posturing, how
will it look, embarrassment, issues of acceptability, acceptance and
approval by others, belonging, low self-esteem, boasting, bragging,
personal worth measured by intelligence, accomplishment, looks,
deeds, possessions, better-than, unworthy, superiority-inferiority,
resistances, stonewalling, hostile, intimidating, destructive.

Ego is a phenomenon stemming mostly from personality and ordinary
mind, and their tendency to usurp other aspects of a person's
nature, especially awareness as spirit, heart/soul, and feelings
from core.

"Ego stuff" refers to issues involving the ego as described above,
that result in upset for self and others.  Ego stuff is seen
clairvoyantly as "charge" or buzz in the energy field.  Working with
ego stuff is the battle between the real vs.  the unreal, the
workable vs.  the unworkable, in the human being.  The trick is to
design or access a weapons system of transformation so sophisticated
that eradicating the ego is like the elegance of precision bombing,
at the same time strengthening spirit and intuition.  The errant
ways of ego must first be correctly spotted or identified, and while
some ego stuff can be knocked out quickly in chains, like carpet
bombing, other ego stuff must be hit on repeatedly for many years,
like chipping away at a concrete block.

The trick to working with ego stuff is the person themselves seeing
it for what it is: ego stuff.  They have to get a "taste" and a
"feel" for ego stuff, and how ego stuff comes across to others as
well, why it ruins relationships.  Once recognized for what it is
and then named, ego stuff is much easier to eliminate.  "Oh, THAT'S
ego stuff!  Hmmmm....  OK, I got that <genuine smile, energy rising
up from core and releasing, room brightens up, space bigger, ego
stuff now replaced by spiritual substance on the move in the
person's environment>."


Chief Feature

"Chief feature" is the central false personality characteristic
around which the rest of ego forms.  Chief feature is a core piece
of "survival strategy," what the person feels he has to be and do in
order to survive and get what he wants.  

There is one primary chief feature, and perhaps two or three
secondary chief features.  

The Work focuses on identifying and addressing chief feature early
on for two reasons: 1) Work on chief feature(s) will take a long
time, relatively speaking, to be effective, so it's well to identify
chief feature(s) and start work on it early, so that the various
aspects of transformational work will come together and complete at
roughly the same time, and 2) making headway on eradicating chief
feature(s) makes all other issues much simpler to resolve, often
allowing other issues to fall down like dominoes.  Chief feature may
be likened to that block of concrete that takes persistent efforts
over many years to be effectively resolved.  Insight alone will be
insufficient to resolve it.  Chief feature is very entrenched as a
core survival strategy and it will need to be hit on directly and
indirectly from many angles to be eradicated.


Head, Heart, and Core

There are three main operating centers for purposes of the Work: 
head, heart, and core.

"Head" refers to the consciousness of the individual spirit, which
is normally placed at the center of the head, but which is in fact
non-spatial and is not restricted to any location.  As spirit
interfaces with the etheric body, it activates the crown chakra, the
ajna center (third eye), alta major center (base of the skull), and
higher centers above the head.  "Head" does not refer to ordinary
mind, but rather to the higher mind of spirit, and the abilities to
be, know, and look/observe.  Seen clairvoyantly, the individual
spirit often appears as a spark of radiant golden light.  

(Note: there's an expression "in your head" which refers to the
center of gravity being in the head, as opposed to core.  It is a
derogatory term, a reminder to reassess center of gravity, and
reorient to core.  It is possible to learn to split attention and
"be at core" and also be spiritually aware ("head" and/or "heart")
at the same time.  But to be "in one's head" is an undesirable,
ungrounded, out-of-balance state.)

"Heart" refers to the soul, which "resides" in the heart chakra.
The heart does not refer to the personal emotions or sympathy, but
rather to the higher emotions of love, compassion, joy, bliss,
aspiration, sense of meaning and purpose.  The heart is sometimes
called the "fair witness."  Seen clairvoyantly, the heart chakra may
appear as a rose or lotus.

"Core" is a spiritual-psychic-etheric intelligence center in the
lower torso.  Core is the etheric counterpart to the enteric nervous
system.  Core is commonly known as the home of "gut level"
instinctive intuition and "street smarts."  Core has also been
called a "bullshit detector" or a "sleaze detector".  Core connects
us with what's true or false about the physical and social world
around us at an instinctive and spiritual level, and allows us to
read the energy on our physical and social world as it relates to
our power, well-being, and survival.  

Many of the problems a person brings to therapy are problems because
the person ignored information and feelings from core to some
degree, and now he's paying the price for that denial and turning
away from his own intuitive information, turning away from spirit.
Much of healing consists in spotting when he got intuitive
information, what tempted him to ignore it, the effort to suppress
the information and stuff the feelings, the rationalization or story
he told himself when he suppressed it and went up "into his head,"
and the consequences of that suppression.

Seen clairvoyantly, core appears as a soft reddish, resilient,
hollow sphere, like a big red fuzzy basketball.  Core extends from
the bottom of the sternum to the bottom of the torso.  It resides
within  the etheric body, and extends slightly outward into the aura
field, so is approximately 12" in diameter in an adult.  

Core incorporates four centers in the etheric body: the root chakra
(grounding and security), the sacral center (intimacy, sex, the
generations), the solar plexus (power and feeling), and the spleen
(distributor of life energy).  While core incorporates these
chakras, it is a gestalt that exceeds them individually and
together.  Note that working with core as a unit does not
overstimulate the lower centers, but instead tends toward naturally
harmonizing, balancing, and cleaning up their functioning.

We use attention differently at head, heart, and core.  Each area is
useful for certain kinds of perception and action.  A person will
have one of the three operating easily and most naturally for him,
but facility in all three areas is required in the Work.  Such
facility can be trained or developed.  Intuition training focuses
attention on head, heart, and core to facilitate perception and
action.  Such training is initiatory, in that spiritual identity is
enhance, and perception and abilities are expanded and become more
inclusive.

As the Work progresses, students notice interrelations among head,
heart, and core.  It may be observed that within head, heart, or core
there are also the seeds of the others.  For example, core contains
the seeds of heart and head within it.  Thus, with the interrelations
of head, heart, and core, we can notice an interactive intelligence
and communication that operates faster and faster to produce an
internal coherence, resonance, flow, a greatly enhanced intuition, and
a wisdom-in-action that moves out to engage easily with the world.

Initiation into each of these operating centers is like learning to
drive a car or play an instrument, far better with lessons, except
that in this case you're learning to "drive" or direct energy in your
etheric vehicle and "play" your etheric instrument.


Attention

Intuition training of head, heart, and core involves various
meditation practices and uses of attention.  

There's a saying in the Work that "everything is attention," and how
attention is used.  A key question to ask is, "What did you notice
about ...?"  Repeat that question until you think you're out of
answers.  Then ask the question once or twice more to catch more
answers both subtle and obvious.  You will be surprised at how much
you do in fact notice but may not give yourself credit for
perceiving, or may not share with others for various reasons.
You're already very intuitive - intuition comes with being a spirit.

You may have denied your intuitive impressions because much of our
culture has no place or words for these impressions, or it's
considered not polite to notice what's really going on, much less
talk about it.  As such, people's apparent lack of intuition is
tacit cultural programming to NOT perceive, to NOT look, to NOT
notice, to NOT talk about.  It's a short step from perceiving to
speaking.  Articulating what you notice is a step in integrating the
intuition that is your spiritual birthright.


Truth

Spirits have an enormous affinity for the truth.  They naturally
gravitate to the truth of any situation, unless there is social
conditioning or perverse logic that says to ignore or ridicule the
truth.  Love of truth is the key to salvation for a spirit, and
will lead to freedom and spiritual power.


Suffering

Buddhism seeks to eliminate suffering by blowing out the fires of
desire.  Desire not, suffer not.  If we grant for a moment that
no-suffering may be the end of the path, then it is not the
beginning or the middle.  If someone were to try to eliminate desire
directly, they would repress or attempt to stop the life impulse
within them and defeat their own purpose.  All portions of the path
need to be experienced fully.  While some things can be fully
understood through direct insight, the way out of most worldly
suffering is to exhaust it, complete it, go right into the middle of
it and then out the other side, free as a bird.  The sum total of
worldliness is exhausted over lifetimes and is not likely to be
completed in just one lifetime.  The accelerated path works
with the essence of desires, not the form of desires, thus we find
out the truth of our desires, exhaust the forms, and become free
much faster than if we repressed or resisted desire.

Gurdjieff noted that there are two kinds of suffering: necessary
suffering, and unnecessary suffering.  Necessary suffering includes
grieving for lost loved ones, occasional physical pain, and also the
striving and extraordinary special efforts of the accelerated path
of initiates.  Unnecessary suffering includes suffering from
ignorance, conditioning, lifestyle, illness that could be cured,
grinding poverty, unwanted or ill-timed pregnancies, misdirected
will, and arbitrary group agreements such as economies, governments,
famines, and wars.  I speculate that some 90-99% of the suffering of
Humanity today is unnecessary suffering.


Fruits of the Work

The purpose of meditation is to know God, to commune with God, to
know oneself as spirit.  All other results are by-products and are
not to be sought for their own sake.  Increased intelligence and
stress relief are common, as well as some issues clarification,
discernment and intuition.  Mostly meditation orients a person
spiritually and other manifestations derive from this.

The result of the Work as a whole is a spiritually awake individual,
a virtuous, balanced and capable human being, and a person who is
welcome everywhere as a true friend and contributor.  

Much of the Work of removing past conditioning and clearing up old
issues involves attending to core and spirit.  

The creation aspect of the Work deeply engages the heart, the
heart's desire, and values.  Creation secondarily involves the head
with creative ideas based on the heart's desire and values, and core
in engaging with the world.

Action requires core, also known as "the moving center," where we
move out into the world, engage with the world, act with wisdom and
ease, as if we were flowing along a river.  

The state of "flow" engages head, heart, and core in a harmonious
balance for the task at hand and enables more-or-less effortless and
fulfilling activity.

Both core and heart are "unsophisticated" and do not doubt
themselves, doubting being a peculiarity of ordinary mind.  There is
an immediate access to truth at core and heart that is
most refreshing, a little-known oasis in the world.  

What we call "authenticity" and "transparency" are the virtues of
deep honesty, sincerity and love, signaling the ability to be at
core and heart at will, as appropriate to the situation.  Good
communications and trust are impossible without authenticity and
transparency.  Authenticity produces a very satisfying feeling at
heart and a solid feeling at core for the person himself, and it
produces an almost palpable sense of integrity and trustworthiness
to others present, which invites them to be authentic as well by
example.

In "the Work," people learn how to tell the truth.  They learn how
to tell a deeper and deeper truth, in a graceful way that others can
receive in the spirit in which it's given.  People may begin the
Work with varying degrees of sincerity, but even those who begin
with extreme sincerity and virtue need to learn how to be authentic.
They learn to take off the layers of truth, get out of their heads
and into their heart and core, and get down to bottom line personal
truth, absolute truth, energy and spirit.  They learn to speak,
listen and live from heart and core.  

When people first begin to tell a deeper truth, they may feel
awkward and uncomfortable, but in the presence of a supportive group
with a good teacher or group therapist, awkward feelings soon evolve
to a grace, confidence, and dignity that are a beauty to behold.
Normally such grace and ease in telling the truth at a deep level in
any circumstance is best developed in groupwork, and goes hand in
hand with chipping away at the ego over time, since ego is so
defended it must save face and cannot appear vulnerable, so prevents
a full telling of deep truth.  Only when a person is authentic will
he be rightly prepared to wield spiritual substance and the power of
the word as appropriate to the circumstances.  

Both Ends of the Stick

To use an analogy of a stick, a person on the path of accelerated
development needs to Work "both ends of the stick" concurrently:

1)  PURIFICATION: remove limited conditioning, ego-stuff, illogic and
other false ideas; remove old and outworn energies; rectify karmic
injustice and incompleteness, and 

2)  CREATION: unfold awareness of self as spirit, and refine the
process of conscious creation.

To pursue a spiritual path without extensive purification is to run
aground due to "dirt in your spiritual gas tank."  To pursue
purification without a teacher, a workgroup or spirituality is to
miss the inner workings of the purification process, and to have a
more difficult time with social integration and creation later.
Therefore, "the Work" pursues purification and creation
concurrently for best results.
