From The Beginning Of Time
Great Men Have Recognized
The Power Of The Four Elements
From the 9,000 year old step pyramid of Imhotep, to Plato to the pagoda’s of Asia – a carefully guarded secret has been passed down from initiate to initiate…
A secret so powerful and yet so simple that it can be understood with a whisper…
It’s been shrouded and hidden in metaphysics for thousands of years…
But once you begin mastering it – you become more powerful than you ever imagined possible.
That secret has been hidden in allegory and architecture for thousands of years.
Would you like to know what “it” is…?
The “Ground-Up” Approach
To Self Cultivation
And Personal Power
Take a look at the actual designs of the earliest step pyramids. The South-East Asian Pagoda. The Gorinto of Japan. The Taj Mahal. The muqarnas dome of the mausoleum of Nur al-Din in Damascus…
Hidden deep within the world’s esoteric traditions – you find a simple idea:
Man’s path of personal development moves from the ground up… From Earth, to Water, to Fire, to Air.
You can think of it as physical power, social power, mental power and post-personal or “spiritual” power.
This simple truth was rediscovered and expanded by Maslow with his “hierarchy of needs” and further in the 20th century by Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson with their 8-circuit model.
That model is a great one, and it makes The Four Elements easy to understand.
The first 4 circuits (of development) are:
If You Want Greater Success And Achievement
In ANY Area Of Your Life
You MUST Focus On These 4 Leverage Points
Have you ever wondered why monks – in all traditions must be given the requisites for living, like food, clothing, shelter, and so on?
Think about it…
If they’re legitimate – their one highest and best goal is their own post-personal development and awakening.
The reason why is simple: Bio-survival stability is a PRE-REQUISITE for spiritual or post-personal development.
Look at that pagoda image above again…
The Earth element – your physical power, well being and security is ALWAYS the first and most essential part of yourself that you need to develop.
Starving and endangered people don’t make great leaders. They don’t make great thinkers. And as the Buddha realized when he gave up the life of an ascetic – they don’t self-awaken.
Look – if you want to become a well rounded, successful person, or even if you have very lofty goals like mastering meditation or becoming self-awakened – You’re going to have to focus primarily on your physical power and security, and then on your social power. Next, you’re going to have to develop and expand the power of your mind. Finally – you work on your personal development.
Here’s an easy formula to remember:
Spend 50% of your energy for personal development on your physical power and health. Spend 30% on your social power and influence. Spend 15% on expanding your mental capabilities, and – use the remaining 5% for post-personal development.
This Simple Truth
Has Never Before
Been Made Easily Accessible
With VERY FEW exceptions (Shaolin, some marathon monks, etc.), you can’t go to any one place and study physical, social, mental and post personal power.
What’s worse is that even if you realized that you needed to do that in order to live life the way you really want – there’s never been a system or culture which embraced personal development in this way outside of the closed gates of secretive esoteric communities.
