Introduction to the method
The S.C.A.I.P. is a comprehensive method for living consciously in the moment and freeing oneself from the limitations of the mind and ego. The method includes a series of simple techniques that enable us to get in touch with or deepen the inner silence of Being, to consciously manage emotions and egoic tendencies (psychological programs and patterns, impulses, limiting thoughts, etc.). etc.), to avoid or stop identifying with them, to make them subside and weaken them… Then to maintain conscious contact with the inner silence and peace, freedom and fullness of the Being.
We can use the process and means suggested by the S.C.A.I.P. method whenever a pattern, an impulse, a tendency or an emotion manifests within us, draws our attention compulsively and makes us identify with it, seduces us, hooks into us and does not leave.
The S.C.A.I.P. method is applied more and more effectively as the level of Self-awareness and other sattvic abilities (discernment, attention, purity of tone, detachment, etc.) rises, we become skilled in mastering the various techniques involved in the method.
All of the above as they develop make us more and more capable of maintaining conscious awareness of the inner silent presence of Being, of consciously observing as neutral witnesses of what is happening in our psychological world.
Furthermore, to identify less and less with whatever arises within us, to become more and more aware (according to our abilities and circumstances) of the manifestation of thoughts, feelings and egoic tendencies, etc., to avoid identification with them or to stop them more easily if they occur, and to manage them in an effective way.
