ANNOUNCING: the test release of the Robot Witness [Feb. 1st, 2008|06:33 pm]
Universal Conscious Practice

laputain
Please find attached a link to my gift to the community - the Robot
Witness, v. 0.0.4.

This is basically Gene Goodreau's Virtual Witness, rewritten as a
stand-alone programme in the Gambas programming language for Linux,
rather than as an HTML page.

The only significant changes I have made to the programme from the
classic Virtual Witness is:

- including a timer for sessions.

- including a facility for taking automatic session logs (you type
your thoughts in and they're automatically saved).

- including coloured "flashes" next to the questions. Colour-coding
the various questions seems to me to act directly on the subconscious
mind to evoke the correct states of mind, thus making it easier to get
into session mode.

===

I've packaged it for Debian/Ubuntu, for RedHat, for Mandriva, for SUSE and as a tarball. If I've done anything wrong here, I'm sure a friendly Linux geek will explain it.

NOTE: This programme will only work if you have the Gambas programming
language installed - you can get this FREE from http://gambas.sourceforge.net/.
I wrote this in Gambas 1.1 - I don't know whether it will work on
later versions.

Please feel free to test and freely distribute, or translate for other
platforms. Email me if you want source code or similar.

A survey on using UCP [Mar. 15th, 2006|02:16 pm]
Universal Conscious Practice

I'd like to hear some feedback from the readers of this community:

1) How often do you do UCP?
2) How long will an "average" session go?
3) Do you find it difficult making time to do a session?
4) Is everyone doing it solo, or are some using a partner?
5) Do you use the Chart of Scales to track progress? If not, how do you know you're making progress?

My own answers:

1) Two or three times a week, when I'm active.
2) About 20 minutes.
3) Quite often.
4) Usually solo. Very occasionally with a partner.
5) As most of you will have figured out, I've given up on the Chart. I track progress by keeping a diary of where I feel I am at the endpoint of every session. The plan is that occasionally I will read back through the diary to see whether there's any common themes - and if so, do a session dealing with those themes.

Is the chart of scales make feel what you believe or is it an independant accurate map of awareness [Mar. 14th, 2006|09:46 pm]

Well this has already been sort of brought up. The chart of scales is a sort of catch all of scales because no matter how you feel you can find a close analogue on the chart. UCP clearly produces beneficial change, that is easy to demonstrate and to observe in other people. Recently KP has started doing sessions again and has made enormous progress compared to when he seemed stalled and was actually (by his own admission) not doing sessions.

I have noticed that the chart of scales seems accurate but this is harder to determine. I do not know. At present I am happy to just keep doing UCP and looking at the chart. Trying to plot your progress clearly does no harm, whether it is accurate or not is debatable.

P.S KP has also admitted that there are errors in the chart which he has noticed which have not been corrected yet. So even the creator of the charts has admitted that the charts we are using are incorrect. Apparently the errors are from +6.0 upwards.

Welcome! [Mar. 8th, 2006|08:26 pm]

Hello and welcome to the Universal Conscious Practice community. Good to see you here, and let's see if we can't get some decent discussion going on the Practice - and some decent posts which can show newbies what it's all about, and how it can be useful!

I'd like to get the ball rolling by inviting comment on the following insight which came at the endpoint of a half-hour session I did last night:

Being who I really am is unsafe. But being someone else makes me feel suffocated and angry.

Discuss.
