I was contacted by a person I taught NLP in London in 1995!

Latest Info: After the current message was posted to Facebook, one of my contacts (an American executive business person) sent his message to FB, saying “Kitaoka-san is great! He may well have more experience with NLP than anyone in Japan. I encourage anyone living in Tokyo who is interested to learn more about NLP to or coaching to check out his “Services” page on his blog and reach out to him directly.  http://www.psychonautics.info/?page_id=23.”

As soon as I became formally active on the Facebook page, someone whom I knew in London during the early nineties contacted me (!), and I had a very interesting communication with this person.

He said “I remember the work you did with me in 1995. You made a significant contribution to my life. I still have the books I got from you.”

It turned out that these books were my workshop manual “Effective Communicator’s Manual” and my essay “NLP and Spirituality.”

Also, he asked me “Are you getting people enlightened?” and “How do Japanese people find your Self-realization work?” I gave him the following comments:

“1) I think that Japanese people seem not to be able to understand ‘my Self-realization work’ in a true sense, mainly because ‘Counter-culture’ has not been existing in the Japanese society, as I mentioned in my latest Facebook message.

2) I am not sure whether I was making this explicit around 1995 when I gave sessions to you, but I have been maintaining at least for the last 20 years the position that NLP itself CANNOT enable people to get enlightened, but that it enables them to ‘duplicate and maintain’ the state of enlightenment for 86,400 seconds a day, if and only if they have achieved the very state through other methods than NLP itself.

3) In this sense, I have been describing myself as an ‘in-brain drug dispenser’ who can help people who have already experienced the state of enlightenment to ‘perpetually reproduce’ exactly the same ratio of different neurotransmitters such as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin, as that which their brains were secreting in the very state of consciousness.

I make this claim, on the undeniable assumption that, as far as people who are experiencing the state of enlightenment are ‘alive,’ they must necessarily be secreting a specific ratio of neurotransmitters in their brains.

This means that my recent study and discoveries related to human consciousness have enabled me to successfully ‘model’ the state of enlightenment and to ‘duplicate’ it in the daily life on a perpetual basis.

(Of course, it goes without saying that, if the state of enlightenment can be duplicated on a perpetual basis, any other states of consciousness also can.)

I do hope that you will find this claim of mine interesting and hopefully fascinating.

It is to propagate my teaching world-wide that I have started to be formally active in English.

4) My recent teaching derives from the CD-ROM book entitled ‘CYBERBOOK:An Integral Epistemology for Enlightenment’ I wrote and published in London in 2000, part of which is uploaded at:

http://www.creativity.co.uk/creativity/cyberbook/

I think that you have never seen this book.

(I intend to start to sell the full version of this book from this site in the near future.)

6) I now would like to promote myself seriously on my English Facebook and my blog.

I also intend to start to publish an English online newsletter ‘Integral Epistemology for Enlightenment’ through the blog in the near future.”

After those comments I gave him, I spoke with him via WhatsApp for a couple of hours. I may talk about this interesting chat of mine with him in my forthcoming Facebook messages.

The reason why I have left the Japanese market

I have been exclusively active in the Japanese market since I came back to this native country of mine in 2001, after having spent some 20 years abroad including London, the UK (for 15 years).

I have since taught “integral epistemology” to over 2,000 Japanese NLPes, etc., but have in the recent years come to the firm conclusion that the Japanese people in general cannot “change (or ‘virtualize’ for that matter) their reality,” practically meaning that they cannot change their inner models of the world at all, even with the most powerful consciousness altering tool, i.e., NLP.

I believe that the biggest reason among others for this extremely sad and unfortunate fact is that “Counter-culture” of the sixties, which I believe was the important philosophical background for the birth of NLP, and which has been apparently bearing their “belated” fruit in the Western world in the form of such modern innovative companies as Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Tesla having held hegemony in the global business world, of “28 States having legalized cannabis,” and of even the recent “Me Too” movement in the Hollywood industry, has been totally lacking, or has never existed in the first place, in the Japanese society.

When I came back to this country in 2001, where everything related to mental treatment, including personal development, therapy, counseling, psychiatry, etc., seemed to be at least 50 years behind the States, I already knew that my audacious endeavor to “wake up” my countrymen was going to be a rather tough work, but was then unable to foresee the innate “absurdity” of this naive “mission impossible” of mine.

The last straw on the camel’s back happened to me a few years ago, when I was personally mentoring a Japanese student with fairly sufficient experiential knowledge of NLP:

He then said to me, as part of a role play, that he was going to have a very tough meeting with his business counterparts. I asked him what he should do prior to the meeting. He suggested that he could do an Anchoring (i.e., conditional reflex) related exercise to access and maintain his positive mental state, in the corridor before entering the meeting room. I said “bravo.” Next, I asked him what he should do if the meeting has gone terribly wrong. He then suggested that he could again do an Anchoring related exercise to change his memory of the incident for the better after he comes back home. I again said “bravo.”

Yet, when I asked him “How about doing a similar exercise ‘in the middle’ of having that tough meeting?,” he replied that he had NEVER thought of such a possibility. I couldn’t believe my ears then, and still cannot even today. Have such mind altering tools as NLP not been created precisely in order for people to change their “on-going” behavioral patterns in their real life?

I beg the readers of my current message to help me to understand why an NLP student can dare to make such an inconceivable “anti-raison d’être” comment, all the more because a few number of my students having spent tens of thousands of dollars to take part in my certification courses used to say to me rather very proudly “Some months have passed since I was certified by you, and I now have forgotten literally everything you had taught me in the courses.”

I think that it goes without saying that the above discussion is closely related to the very reason why Japan has not produced, and is not producing, any genuine “innovators” of the caliber of the CEO’s of the modern innovative companies mentioned above in the business world.

I think that something has been going fundamentally wrong in the Japanese educational system – I was rather fortunate about the fact that I was absent in this country from 1981 to 2001 – and have come to the conviction that, unless Counter-culture itself, or its very spirit at the least, is decently introduced to Japan, it would sooner or later cease to exist as an independent country (there may exist good conspiracy theories to explain this quite feasible possibility).

I have recently started Youtube dialog talk sessions on Counter-culture, and broadcasted a dozen of filmed sessions, but have very recently decided to, say, “desert my country,” and a few days ago declared to my online newsletter readers that I was going to enter “eternal silence” in Japanese (!).

That is the very reason why I have come to be formally active in English on this Facebook page.

I hope that there will be a great number of intelligent and intellectual people worldwide who may be interested in my own direct experiences with Japanese people during the last 16 years or so, as someone who used to spend a number of years abroad, who has a rather Westernized mind, and who can see both sides of the fence.

I believe that I will be able to assist Western people to understand the mind of Japanese and/or Oriental people, as a cross-cultural communication consultant, to better their inter-cultural communication with their Oriental counterparts.

I also have successfully “modeled” Western people who can virtualize their reality, and developed a learnable exercise designed for achieving this skill, so that people who cannot “change their reality” may be able to start to do so. I do hope that many of the readers of my current message may be interested in such an unheard-of exercise.

BTW, when I mentioned this exercise developed by myself to my mentor, John Grinder, a co-founder of NLP, a couple of years ago, while telling him “I wonder whether Western people who are naturally good at virtualizing their reality may start to make fun of me, saying ‘Why does such a thing which even a baby is already possibly doing need to be made explicit as a learnable exercise?’,” he kindly said to me that, although other Westerners may indeed deride me, he himself would like to say “Bravo” to congratulate my epistemological achievement.

I now intend to post my thoughts on the issue in question to this page on a regular basis.

This site will become active again soon.

This site has been “dormant” for a while, though I will start to make it active again very soon, all the more because I have decided to start to be “intermingled” with English speaking foreigners who are based in Japan, and who are interested in “integrative teaching,” integrating Western psychology, epistemology, etc., with Eastern meditational methodology, philosophy, etc.

Also, I was very recently advised by one of my associates that I could for instance create a group called “Psychonautics as Cognitive Expansionism”on such a site as “Meetup.”  I may do so in the near future.
