Spiritual practice “Pyramid”
Rigden: …The “Pyramid” is far from the limit of perfection, although it is a very effective meditation that helps you to feel your true inner self and also to understand human’s complex structure that is little known to the present-day people.
Rigden: …So, as I have mentioned before, from the perspective of the Observer of a higher dimension, the human structure does not look the same as it looks in the three-dimensional world (with arms, legs, a head, and a torso). It looks as a complex shape which more than anything resembles a four-sided truncated pyramid with its top detached. This is, of course, if we pick the closest association understandable for the thinking of a resident of a three-dimensional world. Thanks to the “Pyramid” meditation, a person can feel his energy structure, which is connected to the four Essences, expand his perception, and, most importantly, feel his Soul.
It is advisable to do the “Pyramid” meditation while sitting in the lotus position or simply in a cross-legged position “Indian style”, placing your hands on your knees, palms down. However, if for some reason, a person is unable to sit in such a position for a long time, this meditation can be done, for example, while sitting on a chair. The main thing is the inner, spiritual processes taking place in a person.
So we close our eyes, tune in, calm down, relax the body, free our mind from thoughts, all our worries, and emotional surges. In general, we fully enter into an altered state of consciousness – a meditation. While in the state of meditation, we start examining our energy structure which is connected to the four Essences. That is to say, it is necessary from the perspective of the Observer located inside the truncated pyramid to feel the Right, Left, Back, and Front Essences as “live sides” of the truncated pyramid. These sides are located approximately at an arm’s length from the physical body of the person.
Anastasia: Figuratively speaking, in front of the meditating person at an arm’s length, there is a live energy field, conditionally in the form of the front wall of a truncated pyramid. It’s the same on both sides and in the back. These fields form a quadrangle base, in the middle of which there is a meditating person sitting in the lotus position.
Rigden: Yes. These four Essences are like frontier guards of our energy field or, in other words, of our personal space. What is personal space? Between the physical body and the four Essences, there is space ranging from the critical 7 centimetres up to 1 metre. Personal space looks like an oval with a blurred outline (as it was called in the ancient times, “an egg” or “a fish bubble”), which in volume is larger than the human body. As a rule, in the secret writing of signs and symbols, it is conditionally designated with the symbol of an oval.
I will just say that the personal space of each individual is unstable; it constantly varies within certain limits of its volume. This depends on many factors, even on a change of an individual’s mood. But usually people do not notice this, they do not understand and, what is more, they do not see it with their physical sight, let alone control it and, consequently, control their states. But this is not our topic now. It is worth noting that the distribution of energies in the human pyramidal structure is slightly different from how a person would perceive it from the perspective of the Observer of the third or the fourth dimensions – through the energy meridians of the body, arms, and legs. Here, energies are distributed on the cross-sections of the pyramid according to the physics and the geometry of spaces of higher dimensions.
So, the conditional sides of the truncated pyramid are our four Essences. The Soul is confined in the middle of this structure in a kind of light cocoon. It is located approximately in the lower third part of the structure, and if one uses the physical body as a reference point, then it is at the level of the solar plexus and the upper part of the abdomen. By the way, in the East, since ancient times, the Soul in a cocoon has been symbolically depicted as a pearl in a shell. It was a symbol of human’s spiritual development, which is hidden from the eye, inside his structure. It was a miracle of Revival. Its nacreous whiteness symbolised spiritual purity, wisdom, perfection, and sacred knowledge. It should be noted that this associative comparison of the Soul with a pearl can be traced in all the religions of the world. For Hindus and Buddhists, the pearl is an image of spiritual enlightenment. Christians combine the “priceless pearl from the waters of baptism” with the concept of the Soul and the Mother of God and Her spiritual purity. Islam has a legend that the pearl is one of the names of God and that in the other world it is pearls that form spheres around holy souls. Such associations are partly related to spiritual vision because the meditating person during certain spiritual practices sometimes sees processes taking place in the area where the Soul is located, which he associates with a shining, a play of bright light coming from the Soul, which looks like the glitter and sparkling of the pearl’s nacre in the sunlight.
Anastasia: Once, you gave another good association when you were describing the shell of the Soul during reincarnation, that it looks like an iridescent film on a soap bubble. I wrote this knowledge down in the book Ezoosmos.
Rigden: That is right… Now that we have outlined the human structure as a truncated pyramid, let us move on to its top which is detached from the base. It is in this place, in the pyramid’s conditional top which is located above human’s head, that his thoughts are born. That is approximately half a metre from the top of the head (the distance is approximate because it is individual). That is what the energy structure of an ordinary person looks like in the understanding of a citizen of the three-dimensional world. It looks like a four-sided truncated pyramid with a conditionally detached top.
But let us get back to the technique of this meditation… So, it is necessary to feel all the four Essences. This feeling is like you are surrounded by four absolutely different people standing close to you. If you close your eyes and relax, you can feel their presence as certain pressure on your personal space. Once we have felt the four Essences, we move to the top of the pyramid. There, we observe the primary process of “formation” of our various thoughts (which later get transformed through the cacodemon and the agathodaemon centres which you mentioned in the book “Birds and Stone”; one might say, they acquire material characteristics), how these energies appear, and ways of their movement, interaction, and blocking. We differentiate their impact; simply put, we track all these processes and then we either calm them down or completely abstract our mind from them.
Then we leave the top of the pyramid, move up higher, and reach the level of the Observer that is detached from the material world. In other words, we rise above thoughts, above matter, and we reach the state of detachment from the earthly, from what, in one way or another, binds us as a Personality to matter. Often in the early stages of mastering this meditation, it helps to imagine that the meditating person goes with his consciousness out of his pyramidal structure, hovering and observing it from the bird’s eye view. Using modern associations, consciousness is kind of located at this height, as if in a vacuum, in zero gravity. This state of the Observer from the Spiritual nature helps to obtain complete inner stillness, an expanded state of consciousness, impartiality of the very process of observation of ongoing processes, helps to abstract the mind from the material body and thoughts, and explore one’s energy structure from the perspective of a new vision. Then, we remain in such a state of consciousness and observe our pyramidal structure and the Soul enclosed in it from the outside.
Next, the most important part of the meditation takes place. We make the best possible direct approach of consciousness (the Personality) to the Soul, and we do it at a level of the deepest feelings. That is, we immerse ourselves (as an Observer) through the top of the pyramid, through the inner energy structure of the pyramid itself into its very centre –the Soul. At this stage of meditation, the brain often gives an associative perception as if a person dives, just like when diving into the water but without the pressure that is typical for this physical process. During such an immersion, people who are inherently very sensitive to energy processes, especially those with a well-developed intuitive perception, notice even phases of a gradual switching of the operation mode of their consciousness to new levels of sensory perception, which have previously been unknown to them.
So it is necessary to come as close as possible to the glowing cocoon in the centre of the pyramid, where this particle from the spiritual world is located. And then to touch it at the level of the deepest feelings. Of course, it is impossible for the person to fully feel the Soul and comprehend its spiritual depth until he has spiritually matured and united with it. But even this contact of feelings begets the state which Buddhists, for example, call a touch of Nirvana, and other people describe as a state of goodness, divine bliss, achieving harmony, and so on.
Thanks to this meditation, it is possible to understand yourself and your complex multi-dimensional structure better and to become aware of the fact that many thoughts appear and disappear not of our own “will.” But we can observe and influence them, abstract our mind from them, and block them. The most important thing is that with this meditation, a person as a Personality will gain an experience of not only a sense of divine presence but also of a connection with his Soul, develop skills of a constant contact with it, and realise in practice that the Soul is the main and the most important part of the whole human structure. The Soul is you, but the real you. The rest of the energy structure in six dimensions is built around it. In this meditation, the person acquires experience of an entirely different perception of his reality and learns to perceive himself from the perspective of the Observer from the Spiritual nature.
The duration of this meditation is individual, just like with any other spiritual practice. To begin with, I recommend doing it for 20 minutes. It could be done once a day or several times a day, as you prefer. The main thing is to do it thoroughly. Later on, the time of the meditation can be increased, for example up to 30 minutes. But again, the most important part of this process is not the duration but precisely inner sensations and the development of a spiritual deep connection of feelings with the Soul.
Anastasia: This meditation is truly unique. I can say from personal experience that there’s a significant difference in sensations when you are just starting to learn this spiritual practice and when you already have experience of doing it. At first, the technique itself seemed unusual to me because the understanding of how to do a spiritual practice, let’s say, in the “geometry of space”, was new to me. After all, it didn’t involve any work with chakrans or a sensation of energy movement along the energy meridians of the body and so on, to which at that moment I was already used. But that’s what makes it interesting.
At first, everything happened for me only at the level of imagination, but probably that was because at that time I couldn’t yet fully get into an altered state of consciousness. Later on, as I practiced this meditation at home every day, wonderful sensations appeared. For example, I started catching the moment of switching the state of consciousness, of a deep immersion, and unusual sensations of the Soul’s presence appeared, which are hard to describe with words. You are absolutely right, it is necessary to get a personal experience of the meditation in order to understand the whole inexpressible range of sensations.
And I have several other observations about the sense of time during the process of meditation. Earlier, when we just started doing the first spiritual practices, it was quite challenging for me to sit in a meditation for 20-30 minutes. Now I understand that you pay attention to the body during the process only when you are in the mode of usual thinking, when, in fact, you are in the waking state. In this state, you feel your body and the surrounding environment well, and stray thoughts appear in your head from time to time, which distract you from the meditation. The meditation itself is carried out nominally as your imagination is at work for the most part. Now, many years later, when I do the “Pyramid” and really get into an altered state of consciousness, then time, space, and, generally speaking, all this crude reality of the three-dimensional world kind of cease to exist. You only start this process, go towards the Soul, and you are kind of picked up from the other, spiritual side, the Front Essence starts working actively…
What happens already at this stage of work in this meditation is, obviously, incomparable to the results of the very first attempts of its exploration. Besides, there’s no monotony in this spiritual work: every time this spiritual practice gives one a new awareness, a richer range of sensations, and a clear understanding of the processes and changes taking place at the invisible level. You already live by this state, and when you finish the meditation, it seems that you leave something near and dear and wait again for that moment when you can feel it once more. Because of this, you get an urge and an active wish to practice it more since you want to stay there longer. For in this wonderful state, you begin feeling something very dear and intimate, an extraordinary comfort; you clearly become aware of the deepest processes which are impossible for the brain to understand in the usual state of consciousness. Importantly, when you leave this meditation, you feel a significant difference between that subtle world and the world of matter of three dimensions. You start feeling many processes in our reality as the work of rough material energies. Surprisingly, in the state of meditation, you gain a clear and precise meaning of your existence, and many things, which used to trouble you in worldly life, appear to be empty and ridiculous. There, you fully realise that the real life values are values for the Soul. This phenomenal experience in a way leaves a certain spiritual mark on your life in three dimensions. This, in its turn, allows you not to lose your spiritual and life’s reference points, encourages you to work on yourself harder, track your thoughts and states, and ward off provocations from the Animal nature. The spiritual experience helps to understand where the true happiness lies, which begets feelings of peace and comfort of the Soul, and why you shouldn’t chase after a ghostly illusion of this world. Most importantly, you gain an understanding of who you really are and what the meaning of your existence here, in this world, is.
Rigden: Space and time in this world have an intermittent (cascading) nature. Everything material is intermittent and uneven; everything is ezoosmos. This material world is unstable and temporal. The world of God, however, the spiritual world, is stable and eternal. After this meditation, it is really possible, even in the usual state of consciousness, thanks to the experience gained, to feel these deepest feelings coming from the Soul, this subtle connection with it, the feeling of boundless spiritual Love, the feeling of native home – Nirvana and Eternity.
A long time ago, this meditation was a commonly known technique of self-perfection in the human society, one of the basic techniques used to develop the deepest feelings and a sensual connection of the Personality with the Soul. However, gradually, as the process of materialisation of society’s consciousness developed, people started forgetting and losing this meditation technique, just like, by the way, many other grains of spiritual Knowledge. Sometimes, even mentions of it got deliberately destroyed. As long as true spiritual Knowledge was present in society, it was passed to next generations in the form of symbols as the most important and obvious thing in a person’s worldview. For example, the symbolic designation of the “Pyramid” meditation (the full version of the symbol) was a square with a diagonal cross and an empty circle in its centre.
Figure 68. Symbolic designation of the “Pyramid” meditation
Anastasia: You know, as you were explaining this meditation to us for the first time and saying that energies are distributed along the sections of the pyramid, out of curiosity, I later looked into geometry textbooks and read, now with great interest, that which had slipped my attention at school. For example, that the plane which intersects the pyramid and is parallel to its base, cuts off a similar pyramid. If one cuts a four-sided pyramid with several planes which are parallel to the base, and then projects these sections onto the same plane of the base, then as a result, we’ll get a series of squares inscribed in each other. And the square, as it is known, is a symbol of all that is material. Generally speaking, thanks to this additional information, I later started to understand more also about the processes taking place in the meditation. Still, it’s important for a person to have all-around basic knowledge.
Rigden: The pyramid’s geometry is closely linked to physics. Due to having such a structure and the necessary Knowledge, it is possible to cause certain effects as a result of an interconnection … among dimensions, due to natural laws of physics. This was, in fact, known to the priests who possessed information about the primordial spiritual practices. It is sufficient to take a look at archaeological facts – ancient pyramidal structures. And people will come across the information that almost all of them had a very important worshipping, ritual, religious, and ideological meaning. They symbolised supernatural powers and embodied the manifestation of certain properties of the world, and that is why people deified them.
