Map of Distinctions
Building Matrix has a speed limit
Expanding your kindness and generosity are side effects of expanding your consciousness. Consciousness is not in your mind. Consciousness is in your being. If consciousness existed in a person’s mind then we could simply explain the consequences of the corporate strategy of externalizing costs and people would instantly stop working or investing in any corporation forever. We could explain the horrors of overpopulation and Indian and African villagers would instantly and forever stop having more than two children. But it does not work that way. Adding information to the mind is not enough to create change. Expanded consciousness is required.
Consciousness expands at a certain speed limit. It can only increase as fast as you can build the energetic matrix to support it, and building matrix takes time. It’s like building good soil. Without good soil, plants won’t grow. If you start out with rocks, sand or clay, building good soil requires consistent hard work over a long period of time. Pull out the stones, break up chunks of clay, mix in compost, balance the acidity.
Similar time and effort is required to build the energetic matrix upon which consciousness can grow.
Just as a good strong trellis supports a vibrantly healthy climbing rosebush, so too a good strong energetic matrix supports a vibrantly healthy growing consciousness.
Diligently practicing the exercises in this book, even if they seem embarrassing or confusing at first, is a proven approach for building matrix.
Practice and Constructive Stresses
Matrix can also be built through persistently engaging other constructive stresses, such as:
Building matrix through any of these various behaviors amplifies the effect of reading this book. An additional way of building matrix is the daily use of Tonic Gold, a true alchemical elixir: three drops on the tongue first thing in the morning.
