Neurosis is here defined as a negative or non useful belief.

To believe that what you are or what you have is the product of your own efforts is neurosis. This applies to beliefs that your value is more or less than it actually is. It is not necessary to have any beliefs regarding your worth or value. We believe we are more because our true belief is that we are less. Because we believe that we are less, which is neurotic we compound this error by pretending we are more. A by-product of believing you are more is the tendency to see everyone else as less. Neurotic beliefs about your worth as being either more or less soon becomes a web of tangled negative beliefs increasingly out of touch with any kind of useful view of reality. If you are born into a life  of poverty it may seem natural to believe that you are less especially as those around you, family friends and others will be likely to confirm by their actions and behaviour that this is indeed the case. If you are born into a life of power and privilege this too will be confirmed by those around you. Whether you are born into circumstances of poverty privilege or anything else your root belief will be the same-that you are less. The reason for this is that any belief regarding your worth is neurotic and as such is untrue, the only reason for coming to this conclusion is a negative one which again implies that our true belief is that we are less. This root belief unites all of humanity in the same neurosis. What we see in the world is neurosis everywhere we look and in a multitude of forms. Whatever form the neurosis takes its end result will always be suffering. Suffering is an indication of the beginning of healing when we are ready for this healing to take place, although we may try to avoid suffering by creating more complex neuroses this is a strategy doomed to failure and implies that we are not yet ready for the healing to begin. Freedom and peace are not to be found in any neurotic belief although paradoxically they are found when we realise that our suffering is showing us in detail the connection between our neurotic beliefs and our suffering. In time we become interested in our own neurosis and begin to see the patterns of particular neurotic beliefs and how suffering results from these patterns but equally how when these patterns are understood the suffering dissolves.
 The implications of the universality of neurosis may be difficult to comprehend for to comprehend  these implications would change our view of the world forever. It is not just some who are neurotic it is much more likely that almost all are neurotic, this includes our psychiatrists and others who work in that field who by the way tend to make up the rules about what neurosis is and who is or is not neurotic. It is not a minor problem it is the beginning of all major problems. Most of those involved in religion or spirituality also tend to be deeply neurotic and the primary reason for this is that these people are strangely the least likely to want to look at their own neurosis preferring instead to keep their focus on the higher realms. It is generally the neurotic who need religion and spirituality so as to not have to look at their own neurosis.

Weekend Intensive

Weekend Intensive
January 3rd - 4th

The universal impediment to understanding is everything that is believed right now. The only true requirement to understanding is an open mind free of all beliefs. The more open the mind is the easier this teaching will be. When beliefs are held too rigidly this teaching will appear difficult but the difficulty will not be with the teaching but rather the tendency to believe things that are not true. This intensive will involve working together in a group and examining carefully all the various layers of belief.
In 2008 the glue that held all my beliefs together spontaneously dissolved without any apparent cause, it is likely that the cause was to do with the degree of questioning that had been applied to all my beliefs. Prior to this I had written the book 'Blood Washing Blood' which can be seen as the preparation that led to the collapse of belief. At the time of the collapse I began writing 'Everything That is Not a Belief is True'. Without belief consciousness shines pure. All suffering ends because suffering can only occur when we believe something that is not true.
The intensive will be held in London N1 there are limited spaces, to book a place call me on 07957 934047. Times for the intensive are - Saturday 3rd 10am to 4pm and Sunday 4th 10am to 4pm.
Price for the intensive is £140

A conversation between Ray Menezes and Marc Lebon on 17 September 2014

Radio Show

For anyone who is interested in the topics of this blog I recently became involved in a radio show that is basically a conversation between myself and Mark Lebon interspersed with music.
From 11.11.14 the show is now being done with myself and Louis Weinstock here is the link for the latest show and previous shows.

If anyone has any questions relating to the topics on this blogsite or on the radio show please post them here and I will try to answer them.

Directions for Consciousness

In the beginning life is filled with consciousness but it is the body that determines how that is used. In the course of evolution the body changes but consciousness does not. As the body changes consciousness is directed to to create new possibilities. Consciousness needs direction and in the beginning these directions are given by the natural needs of the body. Much later a shift occurs and the mind/ego takes over or begins to dominate the natural directions of the body. It is at this point that the body will do what it is told regardless of wether the new directions are sane or not. When directions given to the body turn out to be based on insane or false beliefs then suffering in one or more of its many guises is what follows. This suffering is not dissimilar to a law of physics like gravity; the suffering is a natural consequence of believing something that is not true. The similarity to a law of physics or science is because no matter how many times we run this experiment of believing something that is not true the result or consequence is predictable and will never vary. This is a serious problem and the results of believing things that are not true can be seen all around us and all over the world. There really is no other problem, all human problems have their origin in our capacity to believe things that are not true. To correct this problem it is useful to identify all the things that are believed that are not true. The easiest way to do this is to notice the natural beliefs of the body, that is the sense beliefs of the body or the way the body naturally exists in the world; breathing, touching, tasting, hearing, seeing and smelling.

I am writing my reply to Kite's comment here 
Yes without the meaning embedded in beliefs sensations become like clouds drifting across the sky. What is interesting is that these sensations which are actually quite nebulous can turn the nebulous into something concrete or into absolute suffering. We are addicted to this process of turning the nebulous into concrete because the more we do it the more real ( it seems) the world becomes but more importantly it is the ego/belief entity which has no substance or actuality which is able to deceive itself into believing that it is real and does exist. And pain in all its forms is a great convincer of this.

Democracy Power and Evolution

Money and power can overrule what is right. People can vote to overrule what is right. Violence can and often is used to overrule what is right. Although we may overrule what is right it is important to understand that when we overrule in this way, we have changed nothing, right is still right and will always be so. All we can do is delay what is right. In time all acts of overruling what is right will themselves be overruled. The past shows us that it has always been this way and must always be this way. As humans we are able to overrule what is right and because we are able we do. This is the source of all our suffering, we do not consider the effect of overruling what is right and we do not consider the chaos that is released into the world whenever we overrule what is right. The moment we overrule what is right our suffering has already begun. Evolution is a simple but irrevocable law that says only that which works is right, time is not an issue to this law. We may believe that overruling what is right is our choice but if we pay attention we will see that when we overrule what is right we begin to suffer and furthermore this suffering will not stop until our act of ignorance is corrected. When we knowingly or unknowingly harm ourself or another we have broken this absolute  law and suffering has been created and must continue until it is reversed. Here is the catch - we may overrule what is right and because through ignorance we do not immediately notice that we have also initiated suffering we somehow assume that we have got away with it. All causes have an effect and while the effect may not immediately follow the cause it inevitably will. We grow up believing that we can cheat these laws only because the effect of our actions is not always immediate. Also it seems we would rather live in a world where we can cheat and if this can be achieved through simply not noticing the effect of our actions then so be it. Democracy is a great idea but it is flawed because those who have money and power are willing to use that money and power to convince everyone else that what they want we should also want. Those without money and power because they too would like to have money and power are easily convinced by those who have money and power because these people obviously know how to achieve what we want.
