Incredibly, three months have passed with Ecstasy of Gold stage 3 and Emperor v4. I’m now getting ready to begin Ecstasy of Gold stage 4 for six months.
Strangely, this 3 month EoGst3 phase has coincided almost exactly with the timeline of this research proposal process associated with my job. I haven’t decided exactly what to make of it. But the final deadline for submission is today at 5 PM and my final day of EoG is tomorrow.
This proposal is both a validation and an invalidation of what I’m building. I’d been pressed and pressured to do this proposal over several years, but never had a clear vision. It got to the point where if I did not do this, I might have to worry about a de facto demotion. Finally, I realized how it would work better for me. (In contrast to my colleagues) I approached the research not as an end in itself, but as a means towards my Empire and Business visions. Suddenly, there was more motivation and momentum. It was still a challenge to complete, but I’ve completed it at a good enough level, I believe, to be acceptable.
I also find that I have 3 fairly specific plans for business development, with sub-plans under each one.
In my case, Ecstasy of Gold and Emperor seem to be working synergistically. I think the processing is slower than it might have been if I’d followed a different listening strategy. But it seems to be appropriate to my pace and style.
Three years seems like quite an acceptable period of time, to me, to navigate one’s overall life to a significantly better and different place. This one year of Ecstasy of Gold is, to me, about laying a strong foundation for much more positive change to occur in the future.
Just as I’m approaching this next transition point, it is announced that the Emperor Q experimental listening cycle is beginning. I’m not a trend-chaser, but I am an early adopter (in my areas of interest). I think that this may be an opportune time to try out the new program. I now have a 3 month foundation with Emperor v4 (since December). I’ve felt its ongoing effects on me, there have been reconciliations and challenges; but overall, I have to say, that it’s an enhancive experience. Just this morning, I felt a sense of strength and fullness after my morning Emperor meditation. It’s nothing as specific as a measurable life change; at this point, it’s more of a subjective feeling.
Well, I’ll sit with the possibility today. But I think that when I start my new stack in March, Emperor Q is likely to be part of it.
The New Stack:
Ecstasy of Gold stage 4 (4x)
Inner Circle (2-4x)
