Origami I/Guidelines for the Practitioner

(1 Disks)

Side A: Origami I: This talk from 1971 centers on the Japanese paper-folding artform, Origami. The Zen Roshis, who use this art as a teaching tool, say "It's all in the folding and the unfolding." The result of the folding and unfolding is called the material world, or Maya, which is the electromagnetic field upon which the Lord works. Origami is a way of teaching one how to work. Side B: Guidelines for the Practitioner/Labyrinth Reader: This talk given in the early '70s explains for Transit Practitioners how to act appropriately in a variety of situations; potential trouble a Practitioner can get into and how to handle it; and how to communicate with the family of the deceased. The talk stresses the point that a Practitioner never backs down from his or her ministry.

The Alarm Clock Talk

(2 Disks)

Using the analogy of training for the Bardo through the rigors of playing online video games, E.J. Gold reveals how to learn, in theory, bardo habits required for working as a group in the work. This training provides a foundation. However one needs a mechanism to remind one to engage attention, wake up and apply bardo habits in a practical setting. Gold shows how an alarm clock within one's ordinary life can be devised toward this aim. "I've always liked the idea of an alarm clock for awakening, but until I heard this talk, I never knew exactly how they worked," Pedro Gonzales, Ibiza Spain

Levitation, Invisibility & Immortality

(3 Disks)

This workshop explores basic issues of Being and Nothingness in a powerfully practical and extremely experiential fashion. It accomplishes this by framing it under the subject of invisibility and immediately gives the secret of invisibility as, "The living won't see the dead. Not can't see, but won't." This little nugget of wisdom is from Beetlejuice - a must see classic bardo video. Mr. Gold opens a door to bardo spaces by presenting the conclusion that - you must be dead to be invisible. The key is given as, "In order to be dead you have to be, at least, 'as if' not here at all. It has to be a world without you, a world in which you do not exist. As long as there's a crumb of ego, you can't be invisible. But as soon as you can see a world that you do not exist in, a world in which you are not, that's your crossover point - the world in which you don't exist, that's the first place you'll be existing. Until then, you 'as if' exist." Enigmatic as this may sound, it becomes even more enigmatic upon listening to the entire workshop. However, clues and exercises are given for a lifetime of follow-up work.

The Way of Perfect Service

(2 Disks)

On his 63rd birthday, E.J. announced that he would give a talk on "The Way of Perfect Service." The dining room overflowed and the standing guests spilled into the hallway trying to get a glimpse of E.J. opening gifts. After previewing E.J.'s first recordings playing his new gemeinhardt flute, a gift he wished to honor, E.J. asked for Jewel, who was in the kitchen preparing to serve the cake, to come and ask her birthday question. She explained that her everyday life was very busy and she wished for something more . . . to put her efforts towards being of meaningful service. Michele's birthday question was essentially the same. Both questions quite naturally made a segue into the talk. E.J. repeatedly emphasized that perfect service is about endless, selfless dedication to doing what needs to be done without regard for the relative importance of the task. . . When asked about what is meaningful he talked about right action, giving stories to elucidate examples of being in the right place at the right time with the right attitude.

This talk clearly delivers the "bottom line" on the attitude required for working in the Work - one's situation in a Work life. Gold also presents a Bardo Training tool which gives us the opportunity to transmute the "life" habits into "work" habits, habits that before now were completely invisible. In the Bardo Training we see how we live our lives, how we handle the sudden ambushes of the Labyrinth, and how we are able to work in a group. Bardo Training also provides, in a fun and safe way, the opportunity to bring ourselves in line with the Work self we wish to build.
