Excerpt from Living Your Design

The Human Design System is not a belief system
“It doesn’t require that you believe in anything, or that you believe in me. It’s not stories, it’s not a philosophy. It is a concrete map to the nature of being, a logical way in which we can see ourselves. Just the simple mechanics is enough to make a vast difference in somebody’s life.

The irony of what it is to be a human being is that we are caught at the surface of understanding and accepting our nature and the cosmos around us. We are just at the surface. It doesn’t matter how intelligent we are, and it’s not about the labels we attach to that intelligence; whether we call it “enlightened” or we call it “genius”, there is a vast underlying ignorance of how our bodies operate.”

The Human Design System is a reading of your Genetic Code
“With a Human Design education, your genetic code can be read in detail. That is the work of a professional analyst. This ability to detail our mechanics is profound as it reveals the complete nature in its subtleties. However, by simply grasping the surface mechanics—what this work aspires to communicate—you will have a grounding in this life that is immediately going to bring a difference to your process.

These essential truths are simple because they are mechanical. What is mechanical in us, the way in which our genes operate, is that the moment we try to interfere with their operation we descend into a life of confusion, chaos, and pain. In the end, they will have their way.”

All Learning—Real learning—Takes Seven Years
“We live in a seven-year cycle, and it takes approximately seven years to change all of the cells in the body. The moment you begin to come to your own nature and allow your body to live its life without resistance, you begin a deep process of deconditioning. Seven years later, you emerge, quite literally, as a new being: yourself.

It is when human beings don’t get to live out their own lives that life seems to be such a difficult experience for them. We know that there is a lot of stuff around about “being yourself.” It’s all fine and good for somebody to stand up and tell you to be yourself, but you have to know who that self is.”

15-Watt All-Tube Amplifier

Egnater Tweaker Head

The Tweaker is an ultra compact and amazingly versatile all-tube amp that offers a unique and sophisticated tone with seemingly endless tonal variations via the on-board “Tweaker” selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the TWEAKER will set the new standard for gigging micro amps. The gain, EQ and master sections each have a Tweaker switch providing a wide-range of tones from the ultra smooth and satisfying to fully over-saturated lead tones.

Are you a tweaker?
Hidden inside the TWEAKER is a vast array of tones not usually found in amps this compact. Each of the five toggle switches on the front change the character of the amp. The TIGHT and BRIGHT switches shape the low and high end from soft and smooth to punchy and aggressive. The GAIN switch goes from sparkly clean to an all out high-gain assault.

The EQ switch lets you select from pristine American to classic Brit and even the elusive VX AC sound. The CLASSIC/MODERN voicing switch allows you to select either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power tube tone. It’s all in there to satisfy the ultimate “Tweaker”.

Tweaker Features and Information:
15 Watts Amplifier, 2 x 6V6 Power Tubes, 3 x 12AX7 Pre-amp Tubes, Master Volume, Gain and 3-Band EQ, Modern/Vintage Amp, Voicing Switch, Buffered Effects Loop, Selectable AC, British and American Tone Controls, Clean/Hot Gain Selector, Tight & Bright Voicing Switches, 100V / 115V / 230V Switchable, 14″ (L) x 8.25″ (W) x 6.75 (H)

“My personal method of deconditioning”

In some “not so easy to follow” steps. Perhaps in the right order.

“Try to fit in the Mold of Life by becoming Superslave. Neglect to realize when enough is enough and have a complete breakdown physically, mentally, financially and generally.

Find Rock Bottom and sit there for a while.

Realize that Life is Pain – start to Heal.

Be fortunate enough to be introduced to HumanDesign by someone deep in the experiment, with a Channel of Struggle for the tenacity to seek Purpose. Curse Channel of Struggle. Love Channel of Struggle.

Have first conscious experience of a Spleen-hit while watching your first Ra-video, where he speaks of your 5/2 Profile. Melt inside.

Absorb everything you come across of Information. Know everything. Know nothing. Start Seeing.

Go away. Hide Self from other Selves in Cabin by the Sea. Be alone for a month. Find personal rhythm and true feeling in the body. Remember.

Experiment using the Body as a Barometer for the states of being in Others. Have “HolyShit!” moment of sudden understanding of implications of having a projector-aura.

Become convinced – go RAdical. Initiate Waiting-game. Nothing happens. Re-examine parameters of Waiting-game. Facepalm.

Experience the right Invitation. See yourself transform in the Situation, now that the Recognition has made the Energy avaliable. File under “HolyShit!”. Folder is getting thick.

Streamline friendships, let go of trying to fix things with your Mind and try to settle in the Backseat. Observe your Self quietly freak out, but also do nothing. Create new folder titled “Hm.”

Have noticeable physical improvements as Vehicle starts to become more aligned to its Trajectory.

Move into house where HD is a language and treated somewhat according to Type. Have happy days.

Have bad days. But notice that most of the badness is now filed under “Hm.” and not “F!!” as per earlier routine.

Everything becomes the Experiment. Thank Ra. Curse Ra. Fight it. Loose. Give up. Have confidence. Embrace doubt. Enjoy the Ride. Throw up.

Have “Hm, HolyShit!” moment of realization about the correct use and purpose of Fear and the true implications of Trust in your Splenic Authority. Laugh at the Past.

Write some jumbled brainfarts on deconditioning, in an effort to make some sense of past experiences and perhaps contribute to something or other, thru the outlet of Outer Authority (which you deep down know knows nothing).

Wait. Drink some Tea.

Have nap.”- Lars Haugeland

The Drama of Profile

“…the design side. You have no conscious access to it, which means there is no way your mind can either interfere with it or truly grasp it. It has nothing to do with your mind.

And in terms of the not-self, the not-self does everything in its power to ignore it, even if that unconscious is the sole thing driving its definitions, because it has no access to it, none. When somebody enters into the experiment of Human Design, that experiment is cutting off the mind from trying to run the life and allowing the mind to become mind, to be involved in what it’s here for, which we’ll get to in a moment. But the moment you’re operating according to Strategy and Authority you’re automatically aligning your vehicle to its cognition and you’re automatically aligning your vehicle to a geometry, a trajectory, a direction, whatever language you want to use, that is absolutely correct for you…

…We have a dilemma with mind in Human Design because as not-self it really destroys our possibility to be able to perfect our process. But once you’ve entered into a process where your Strategy and Authority is making the rules for your life there are all kinds of possibilities then for the mind. It is its freedom. And this freedom is to be an outer authority, what you get from me. That is, my mind has value for you. It does not have the same value for me. That is, my mind does not tell me what to do so it is no longer my inner authority.” – Ra Uru Hu – Rave Cosmology VI – Profile, Purpose and Function

It’s perfectly pointless

Maya (the dog)

‘Awakening to your true nature is like dying; it’s a certainty, inevitable. You’re going to get there no matter what you do, so why rush? Enjoy your life, it’s free. Cosmic Consciousness and Altered States and Universal Mind are the names of rides in this vast and fascinating dualistic amusement park. So are Poverty and Disease and Despair. Enlightenment, though, is not another ride. Enlightenment means leaving the park altogether, but why leave the park? In the park you can be a saint or a yogi or a billionaire or a world leader or a warlord. Be good, be evil. Happiness, misery, bliss, agony, victory, defeat, it’s all here. What’s the big rush? When the time comes to leave the park, you’ll know and you’ll go, but there’s certainly nothing to be gained by it.’ – Jed McKenna SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT: THE DAMNEDEST THING
