Non-Duality Direct Pointing Trick: Scraping Sound
Revealed in New Spiritual Fantasy Thriller
Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
How to see through the dream of everyday life?
It’s a conundrum that has exasperated many an earnest seeker. The success of The Matrix brought this deep inquiry into the mainstream. There does seem to be an explosion of seeking at the moment, which appropriately is being served by ever-cuter technological means.
At Liberation Unleashed, a community of guides freely offer a hand to seekers from around the globe, in the spirit of open-source, to support their inquiry. This has grown apace. And, as well as their book Gateless Gatecrashers, they have produced a free app through which many have woken up, merely reading the sometimes jolt-worthy statements designed to shock assumed perceptions. So technology is showing up to meet the need, and seekers are much more capable of applying-to-self (as it were) such direct pointers to awakening without all the baggage of gurus, satsangs and whatever else.
Of course, technology comes in many forms, and SCRAPING SOUND, came into being or rather, came out of the mouth, of a fictional Non-Duality Teacher, the last of a lineage, who also happens to be a faun. Albeit an old faun, and somewhat long in the hoof.
NESFORZ is his name, and fighting is his game. He fights for knowledge of being, and also for the opportunity to share that knowledge. Christopher is his young, unlikely apprentice – an even more naive Castaneda, to a similarly ferocious Don Juan. One of the themes of the book is IDENTITY – both self, and the world – namely, the DREAM.
SCRAPING SOUND is the technique taught quite explicitly to Chris, in order to peel back the layers in a direct and pragmatic fashion. The technique came into being quite spontaneously in the writing of the book.
It is a centred on a trinity of word, sound and feeling. The training begins with a simple object. In THE FAUN’S APPRENTICE, Chris selects a boulder, but you can use any simple object: cup, pencil, apple. The object is placed on a table/surface, and is seen in an everyday fashion. The name of the object e.g. ‘cup’ is seen as the visual label it is. The sound of the word ‘cup’ is heard as the auditory label it is. The particular feeling in response to the object is then felt. The trinity of word, sound, feeling are seen to be woven together to make up the dream of the object. The apprentice is encouraged to see each aspect as distinct unto itself.
One by one, the word, then the sound, then the feeling, are thrown away – each time returning to the object with a growing – sometimes unsettling – sense of mystery and not-knowing.
This proceeds until the ‘object’ is gone.
Then the attention is turned on you. And then the fun starts!
It is quick, powerful and it works. It does require a measure of practice. There are subtleties to it, more an art than a science, but give it a go, if you’re looking for another angle of dismantling the dream of the world, and the dream of ‘you’.
