What is the Second Attention?

Let us follow a conversation between master and his student.



"The second attention, that is a simple and difficult question at the same time. Let me put it in an easy way. During his lifetime, if a person didn't perceive anything that he could not explain, he has spent his whole life in the first attention. One World, which is created by the mind, and in which everything can be explained. "



"The second attention is a world in which we can not explain anything, when we access the second attention we leave our reason at the hat rack in the entrance."

"Does that mean one is a loony in the second attention?"

"No, it means that for the perception of the second attention you don't need your reason. If, for example, you dream, you touch things in your dreams, or have a physical sensation in the dream or smell and taste things, then you are amidst the second attention. Since the reason tells you that it is not possible to touch things in a dream, you have to leave the reason behind in order to enter the second attention. "

"Why should we use the second attention. What is it good for? "

"Now, the second attention is greater, huger than the everyday world. You can find all things of the everyday world in the second attention, so far it is not better, but by the lack of reason, you can do more things that would be impossible in everyday life. "

"Yes, what?"

"You can cure diseases, for example, by acting upon on the ill part of the body, something you can only do in the second attention. Some people fall ill because their soul suffered from bad experiences. You can't see this injury in the everyday world. But you can see it in the second attention and feel and heal, and then the person recovers in everyday day life. "

"Can I cure myself if I daydreams, and I imagine that I put a hand on myself?"

"Well, the daydream is a part of the first attention, but already it is on the border to the second attention. For this, we must understand how the connection between the two attentions looks like. The second attention has its own time. If you observe carefully your perception, then you find in it holes, like some kind of breaks in the performance. These breaks are the gateway to the second attention. You switch the attention in such a break to the second attention and change the time. "

"Could I disappear in such a break for years in the second attention?"

"Yes and no. The question is only useful when time continued. But it doesn't exist. That is the reason why some people, for example, know things from the future. If there is a future event, which already takes shape, then this event exists in the first and second attention but through the holes in the time, all information is available. Some people who have learned to perceive the breaks, can draw such information. Only that for the future there is no certainty, because the future to happen yet could change in detail, even if the rough shape is fixed. "

"This is like being off one's trolley."

"Well, if you think so. But it is not a matter to understand this, it is a matter to experience. Would you not like to get rid of a disease that is soul pain. Or wander through a world that is richer and greater than your everyday life. "

"Who knows what could happen to me?"

"Well, you could give it a try, starting to collect energy for the second attention to perceive."

"And how?"


"It's simple. Imagine that your daily life would be a dream. Soon your body remembers the situations where he was in dreams, and everything was tangible. "

"That's all?"

"There are a thousand ways, looking for the holes in the perception. Ask yourself what the trees dream you face while wandering in the forest. It does not matter what you do and when you do it. The fact that you voluntarily begin your way, that's all that counts. "

To become conscious of different levels of attention is to choose to expand your sense of who you are and how you perceive. You invite readers to think again, to re-orient, as if for the first time. It is a way to open senses.
