Men Live in First Reality, Second Reality Lives In Men


The following recordings are from Jan’s final years, when his voice was diminished and he spoke in a low whisper. Some listeners may find these tapes hard to listen to, or difficult to understand. Thus, as another option, transcripts are being made and will be posted.

Otherwise, turn up the volume and enjoy! Those who carefully listened to Jan during this period consider that he spoke plainly and directly to the matter at hand, “pulling out all the stops,” as he understood that these were to be his last messages to his groups, and to posterity.

Notes by TK

The urge for enlightenment is a hunger to take words/thoughts away from second reality and make them applicable to first reality. It is the urge to make “junk science” into real science: belief into fact. Men live in first reality; second reality lives in men. Awakening is living in second reality like we live in first reality: making second reality into first reality. (41:23) #3297

Uniquely Providing The Unorthodox With Uncommon Accounts
MAY 9, 2005 © 2005 JAN COX

In surveying the expense of permitting the continued activity of his inherent consciousness, one man concluded that it definitely operates on the extravagant
and uncontrollable cost-plus basis.
Only by putting a constraint on the talking part of consciousness
can its wasteful habits be curtailed.

In a vision, Life said to a man: “Only cells speak for me.”
If you ever call a doctor’s office and describe how you’re feeling at that moment,
you will always be told that you should come to his office immediately.
Only man’s inner-only-reality must solicit business.

Never in the life of even the busiest dead man will you ever hear one say:
“I’ll never catch up.”

Says one guy: “The neat thing about repetition is that it’s easy to sing along with.
(And I can assure you of this: my mind appreciates all the help it can get.)”

In man’s mental-only world there will always be just as many questions as
there are reputed answers.

The denser you are, the more room there is for you to be full of yourself.

There are some special men whose speech and physical presence has the power to capture other men’s minds (of course these other men must also be of a special sort).

Die for your country,
die for your religion,
die for your reputation,
die for your wealth,
die for your ideals,
die to your natural mind, the source of all the above,
and die but once thenceforth.

Don’t bother looking up the word “irony” in the dictionary – it IS the dictionary;
all words are born with but one leg;
it takes man’s perceived ironies to make them walk.
If man’s natural mind could see that things are as they appear to be,
we would not be having this conversation,
nor some people struggling to awaken-from-a-perceived-dream.

In the world of man, saying: “It’s a shame” – makes it a shame.

The character of the certain-man’s mind would be best described as one of output – not input.

Pacing back-&-forth is not as useless an activity as is commonly claimed –
not if your desired destinations are the two aforementioned directions.

To get ahead in the city you must present yourself as having a background.
Behind every shadow is another shadow;
understanding this saves the inner rebel much useless peering.
(Aka: Reality is always right up front.)

The Power Of Words (Even When They’re Helpless).
As the ship is about to go down for the third time,
many people wish they’d never learned to count.

Offers one chap:
“The many convoluted and concocted layers to city life are such that I fully expect
to one day see written a roman à clef based on the life of a fictional character.”
(Note: this is not to be confused with your consciousness’ concept of a you in you.)

Who can vouch for what the certain-man knows? – no one,
thus those who profess to, reveal they know nothing.

Maxim Update For The Few.
If you don’t win – you didn’t play the game – not correctly.

At times when this one guy would unwittingly frighten his self,
he would quickly offer the reassurance: “Hey! – it’s only me,”
(which sometimes helped – and sometimes didn’t.)

Some men only breathe easy after they’re dead.

“Something to consider: Which comes first: strength or understanding?”
“And you’re not speaking in the physical sense!?”
“Why would I be?”

If the goal ain’t much – failure to reach it don’t mean a hellava lot either.

In the morning’s emails was included this:
“Dear Sir: After reading the last several days of your News I had a troubling thought:
what if your use of the term ‘dead-man’ in reference to the enlightened
is not a metaphor — but then quickly realized,
even if it’s not – how much worse off would I be than now?
Sincerely (and somewhat relieved),” etc.

The awakened man exists in both the land of the dead and the living:
he is dead to most of what animates the ordinary,
but also alive in a way that is unknown to them.


“God! – don’t you hate anything new that suddenly appears for no apparent reason!”
“O! – you must still be alive…………………………..and normal.”
