Since Breathing Body series came out in 2008, I have been practicing Reggie Ray's meditations for the last few years. Those recordings have genuinely changed my life and even perceptions of the world. I wouldn't say I've mastered those meditations, but at some point I felt the need for further teachings and even considered trying to make contact with him on a personal level. Little did I know that this was in the market by the time I was ready....since I live in Shanghai, I waited patiently for the shipment for a month, and I can say that it couldn't have come at a better time. It's miraculous to be able to receive these teachings. This is 2012, when scientists have already pinpointed the "god" particle, and where popular culture has already entrained itself in the phenomenology of "reality" in a way that was contended by the Buddha some 2500 years ago. It is one thing to know that things are empty and well accepted by most fellows, but quite another to experience it. The problem is that we all probably do on some level, but can't quite put a finger on it. These unprecedented teachings will answer and help realize our so called "reality," and in the process make us forget why we had to ask in the first place.
The work is extensive and complete. From what I can tell, this is probably not for one who comes in with a journalistic outlook on wanting to know the truth. I am sure there are safeguards against these fly-by intentions, but this is a serious system that will truly change people's lives. Most people want self-improvement, but this is for a whole new outlook on life. The pointing out instructions would have been impossible were one not in the presence of a dharma meditation teacher. Here in the East, people expound destiny as if good fortune would entail one to meet the dharma, and here it is....the most valuable and open of secrets as well as the transmission itself. This wouldn't have been possible without the advent of this new age of information. It is accessible to anyone, but that also makes the receiver responsible since infinite freedom entails infinite responsibility.
On the western border of China, the silk road goes through one of the harshest deserts on earth. If you ever visit, you'd wonder how could people tell where the road was as it was all sand for infinity. You'd ask your guide how people in the past could tell they were on the path to India. ....then he'd tell you that it would be littered with bones, and not just animal bones. People who went on pilgrimage to search for knowledge in India were ready to give away their lives for this knowledge. The difference between then and now is that if and when the pilgrim reached his "knowledge" in India, the download would be immediate and in full, cause the receiver would have been 100% ready. Now, the information is more than free and open, but the receiver is generally not. This "guiding" series of cds not only dismantles the so called every day ego, but includes immediate realization of what in psychology is called imminent memory. This is similar to a journey that is taken initially not by weakening first the outer layers, but by going straight to the source and working backwards. The effect is immediate and drastic once the receiver is ready for it. Like they say, Mahamudra is a self-enclosed secret....it will open itself up to the one who is ready.
The reason theistic systems have a jumbled path is because sometimes, the whole forest has to be burned down to establish a path. Common sense tells us otherwise, but we all know from history and our own personal histories, that the truth divides more often than shows its face..and the bottom line is that it is just sooo hard.... Mahamudra tackles reality in a different way... At first, it's like a pickling process, and reality or truth comes up in a way that it becomes an interactive game with the universe itself...The receiver of this knowledge will come face to face with quite subtle effects that one was not previously aware of, but that encompasses the complete reality that person inhabits. A lot of people ask theoretical physicists why they are obsessed over infinitessimal small particles that only last a nanosecond. He will tell you that because this insignificant particle encompasses everything. The same can be said about our thoughts, mind, klesas, emotions, etc....they seem inaccessible/irrelevant and faster than light in an almost mythical way. We don't pay heed to them and even enjoy the drama, but these silly little recurrent thoughts actually IS us. In fact, in most systems of thought, one could say that the "reality" we encounter might just be the approximate meeting of our karma with our psychophysical tendencies....and since it's like the whole chicken and egg problem, stepping out of it might just require help....and that's where this program comes in.
By prolonged commitment to meditation and listening to this program, the supramundane path will open....not because of some specialness in us, but that is what humans are designed for....we are the material vestiges holding the last degree of freedom of our left and right "wings".... When the path opens, the so called magic becomes evident. You become your own Monalisa or ambiguous work of art. Reality would have seem magical to the people in the past who have gone through this, but as modern people, we know that some of the so called veils of time space and matter can be explained already, and time itself is something that wisdom-love itself can surmount. When our ability to have a relationship with this so called invisible reality opens up, the rest of nature will also open up...and not just the earth and its billions of denizens, but literally the whole universe. You will not only understand the workings of the huge universe, but actually be intimate in a way that all the so called myths and obsessions of our ancient ancestors, from the precession of the equinoxes, to the minutest workings of karma. You will relate to your closest friends and acquaintances and find out why working on yourself can actually help others....paradoxical, but often works. Of course, this truth is hard to explain, but just like all myths are expounded to reveal a truth, reality can be even more fantastical.
