THE TOOL FOR SELF-KNOWLEDGE
The Colours tool is a concrete and modern means of entering into a relationship with oneself and of understanding the Reality which animates each one of us.
It is sufficient to pose the question "What is happening now?" and, having mentally answered the question, to take* one of the 90 colour cards, one which confirms your answer. This card reveals what you said in reply to "What is happening now?"
This is how the tool works. It brings out what we already know, deep down.
The second part of its potential is to help to distinguish between the subjective part (the world of ideas) and the realist vision (the real world as it appears through observation) for any event.
It is relatively easy to know what one thinks, emotionally, about an event (the good or evil, for or against duality), but it is not so easy and not so usual to be neutral about events, without a subjective and biased point of view.
The cards are a valuable help in giving a name to our ideas (first mode) and to how we experience what happens (second mode) and in passing from one to the other, that is to say, to look at the emotion produced by an event.
* PRINCIPLE OF DRAWING THE CARDS
The cards are a support for the colours, each of which refers to a text and a summary of key sentences which themselves are the vectors of ideas and of experiences to be understood or observed. To verify them, one can link them to a subject of reflection, a situation or an event, at any particular moment in your life.
Linking a colour to one’s question is done by randomly drawing a card: there is no control - it is done “blind”, like a scientific experiment when one has to prove something. Such a draw can be considered as the hypothesis. The cards are put in a bag and one picks them without seeing them. Experience alone will show whether the colour gives a clear and precise answer to the question or whether it has no particular relevance or meaning.
The same colours can be worn (clothing, jewellery, bags, accessories, dyes etc.) or used to decorate a house (curtains, paintings, lights and other objects).
The chosen colour will always be active.
When it is the mental or emotional state which chooses it, the emotional factor will be predominant, with the effect of “experience” being less obvious.
If it is the observer who chooses it, it is by the effect on the body that the colour has been selected. The person feels the immediate effects, whether they are worn or applied to other objects. The colour has a tranquillising or stimulating effect depending on the needs of the person who chose it.
That is how to go about choosing a colour. It is also a simple way of becoming aware of oneself, of making contact with one’s real nature in everyday life.
