In this audio, a new member is introduced to their study by fellow students. Martin asks members to summarize what they have learned which they attempt to do.

Martin speaks of the paradigm shift required to recognize and become aware of the totality of what one lives. The term "livance" is coined to describe this.

Livance And Pardigms

You might remember that ...   well I told you many things.... among others that kind of what I call the psychological bias. If we look at only three types of awareness, sensory, emotional and mental, we notice that the combination of the three gives you nine possibilities. Of these nine possibilities people are educated to only just three, the sensory sensory, the sensory emotional and the sensory mental. It’s calling the others, possibly negating them.

New Book and Egg Metaphor (54.7M)

The group and Martin celebrate the arrival of Martin's book from the publisher. He goes on to describe three stages in development from Esoteric Psychology to be used as markers.

Stage 1 The realization of a life in which one is identified with the form life and the soul identifies with material aspects. In this one does not know oneself as soul. One reaches full personality expression at the end of this stage.

Stage 2 is where discrimination of one’s duality is realized and the often painful work of the disciple begins in which one learns the discrimination of form and soul life. One realizes one is spirit incarnate in matter - one gradually shifts the centre of gravity to that of soul and grows in realization of the condition in which duality is embraced and is no more.

This is followed by stage 3. The higher realization of unity follows where the sense of soul and body is lost to a sense of unity and new conditions prevail where one begins the recognition of deity at play.

Martin follows this by extensive use of an egg metaphor to describe and elaborate these stages.
