Journey to Yang Town
You awaken to a bright shining light. As your eyes focus, you clearly see the rays of light cutting through a flurry of tree branches. You realize you are lying on your back on the soft grass.
As you stand up, you begin to take in your surroundings; you are in a wide open field with plenty of green grass. Right beside you stands a large oak tree, the only one in the whole field. In the distance you see a small bridge slightly curving over a stream. As you look up to the clear blue sky, you feel a sense of inner peace and strength.
You begin to walk towards the bridge with curiosity, eager to see what awaits beyond. As you come closer to the bridge you see a man standing at the entrance. He is cloaked in a brown robe with a hood covering his head and hands joined across his torso, yet concealed in his garments like a monk.
You notice a curved white symbol attached to a necklace around his neck. Judging from the style of the bridge, the type of clothes of the man and the symbol on the necklace, it seems that you have arrived in some part of ancient Japan. "Who are you?" You ask the man.
He pulls back his hood and carefully observes you. You are surprised to see that he is a westerner, about 6 feet tall with light skin, brown hair and a strong build. "I'm glad you have chosen to come here." He answers. "come this way, your journey begins today."
Without waiting for a reply he turns and walks slowly and deliberately in the opposite direction . Confused and excited, you decide to follow him over the bridge to the other side of the stream. "Not many make it this far." He continues. "It is up to you now." You reply, "What is up to me?" He looks deep into your eyes, as if trying to access your soul. "The answers will come."
You find the path leads you to a tall brown building, a temple. As you reach the building the man stops at the front steps and turns to you. "My name is Randolph. I'm here because of an intense transformation that took place years ago. At that time I had bonded myself to a woman. Things started off with some much love and happiness but this was only the surface. As we gave ourselves fully to one another, we realized that inside of us dwelled pain and insecurity. Anger, fear, and sadness ensued and we had to painfully break apart.
Through this experience, I awoke to life and created this temple as a place to reconnect with my inner being. Your awareness has likewise led you here, to the opportunity to transform yourself faster and more powerfully than ever before. Please, step inside."
He motions toward the nearby stairs leading up into the doors of the temple. You walk up, grab the handles of the doors, and swing them open then step inside. You face a large room, similar to a museum, however instead of works of art you see something else.
You squint your eyes as you look around in disbelief. There are dozens of people, each standing in their own area, speaking off to the distance to an imagined audience. You look closer and it seems like each once is transparent, like a hologram, and you realize that they are the exhibits.
You walk up to one and stand besides his holographic image as he continues speaking to the distance. He is very old, has light wrinkled skin and gray hair, and seems to be of western descent. On the wooden floor below him, you see a sign engraved with the following "David Hawkins: Spritual Leader."
"I've sought out wisdom from all ends of the world and brought them here. Dr. Hawkins is but one of my 'mentors.' This dojo allows access to powerful knowledge. Knowledge that I've used to create my life the way I desire to live. Come here anytime and you may share in the knowledge as well.
Right now I am on the path of masculine power, I am cultivating all the inner strength of a true yang man and living my deepest purpose. By joining me today, you embark on a similar journey of self discovery. It is now up to you to move beyond your old self….and find your true self.
