"One special exercise of the Short Path is easily done by some persons and gives them excellent results, although it is hard to do by others. It consists in refusing to let remain any particular mental registration of the surrounding place or people, or of any physical experience being undergone. Instead the mental image is to be firmly dismissed with the thought, "This too is like a dream," and then immediately forgotten. The exercise may be kept up for fifteen to twenty minutes at a time. The practical benefit it yields is to give improved self-control; the metaphysical benefit is to weaken the sway of illusion; the mystical benefit is to enable him to take the stand of the Witness-attitude more easily; and the personal benefit is to make him a freer and happier man."

I've received the following in a guestbook entry. I'm trying to confirm it's validity (The email they left doesn't work). In the meantime I've suspended all Seth quotes. If any of my visitors have a legal background and can discuss "Fair Use" with me I'd be grateful! Please email to: admin@nirvikalpa.com

"Hi- You are publishing too much Seth material from our copyrights and in-print books. It is not that I do not appreciate your admiration of the material, it is that you not only do not have the rights given to you to publish these online,and you are taking money away from us by publishing this work for free for your own ego's happiness. I cannot see who you are here, or I would write to you directly as well. Please contact me via email to discuss this, and plan on only publishing much shorter quotes with direct acknowledgement of where the material you are publishing comes from. Glad you like the Seth material, but understand that the rights to the material are not yours- and this may also be true for other works you are publishing and writing about. Thank you!"

Paul Brunton
 My new find is Paul Brunton and his student Anthony Damaini. I'm surprised I hadn't come across Paul sooner. I've had Anthony's book on my shelf for about 5 years in which he refer's heavily to books 6 and 15. Paul's "notebooks" are a real find, profound and deep. I've purchased 4 in print form but you can access them all at this link:
