Esoteric Tayu practice in Australia

Stuart and I have been in Australia this week passing on the Tayu dharma to a sincere Fourth Way practitioner from Mauritius, a small island nation east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Sydney has been a convenient spot to meet, since it is roughly half-way between California and Mauritius.

Our dharma friend from Mauritius has expressed the desire to come to California for further, more intensive training in Tayu practice as soon as he can make that happen. Since Mauritius and California are literally almost exactly opposite one another on the planet, that may take some time, but we trust that whatever is supposed to happen will indeed occur. In the meantime, he has gotten some powerful impression food to take back with him to Mauritius, to share with the practice group that he has formed there.

We have seen that the Tayu Co-Meditation exercises are an excellent example of a true esoteric body of practices. It is a point that many Tayu practitioners who have had the good fortune to learn them from Stuart and me, or Robert himself, may not appreciate fully. The Co-Meditation exercises only make sense when presented within an appropriate context. Stuart and I are, after many years of presenting them, quite skilled in creating and maintaining the appropriate contexts. And it may be all too easy for those who have tackled Co-Meditation in those contexts to take the contexts for granted.

What do I mean by "context" for Co-Meditation? I refer to the fact that the natural egoic obstacles to the practice of Co-Meditation, as with any other experiential esoteric practice, would make it virtually impossible for a newcomer to actually do the practice without help. There would be far, far too many excuses for the ego to throw up as obstacles to proceeding further. This doesn't feel natural or comfortable, I've never done anything like this before, I don't know what might happen, this could psychologically harm people, etc. The ego can generate a multitude of barriers to self-examination in the blink of an eye. The proper context can neutralize this strong egoic tendency.

So one of the things that Stuart and I can send back to California, prior to our return there, is just this point: although you may not have been used to thinking of them in that way, the Tayu Co-Meditation exercises are an excellent example of an esoteric body of "knowledge" available only in the context of a spiritual school.

Rob is indeed refering to our experience together during these three days and writing all the way from the "other side of the world" as he put it, I can indeed confirm that this first contact has been most interesting.

You are all very fortunate to have both of them as your guides.

I hope we meet one day...

Net porno is free porn that is distributed by means of various sectors of the Net, primarily via websites, peer-to-peer file sharing, or newsgroups. While porn had been traded over the Net since the 1980s, it was the invention of the WWW in 1991 as well as the opening of the Internet to the general public at the moment that led to an explosion in Net porn.

Thank you.
