Who Am I?
This is my last post for awhile. I assure you that everything you need to get freedom is on this site and Gateway to Gold. Reread old posts; what you perceive changes as you let go. Challenge your thoughts/beliefs, even if your mind is telling you with absolute certainty that what you’re experiencing or thinking is true. As you let go, you’ll answer life’s biggest question, “Who Am I?”
You didn’t arrive on earth wondering who you were. You were curious and alive…a True Self. You saw someone walking, you watched them, you took the risk, and you walked. You heard people talk, and you learned to speak and matched words to objects, people, and experiences. Learning and life were fun.
Recently, I heard on television that children’s brains are completely fired up until they start answering the question “I am…?” They start creating a false identity, labeling themselves; and their brain appears to shut down. Of course, we’re reversing that.
People taught you to see what they saw. You learned there was danger, suffering, problems, and disease. You could get hurt, or you could hurt someone. You learned to judge and compare. This didn’t make sense, but you figured that those who came before you must know the truth.
You were given the knowledge of good and evil (the shit that caused us to fall). Good now had an opposite…EVIL. You learned to hate and fear other humans.
We see what we hold in mind…what we believe. How do we get back to who we once were? It seems impossible. Their beliefs appeared to get stuck in our minds. How did that happen? We asked, and they answered.
“You were born sinful. Your memories of perfection are imaginary…visions of heaven. Go to church to make sure you get to heaven when you die.” What a crock of shit!
Your character was slowly constructed. You learned to be good and worthy so you could get a good-paying role in society and work hard. “Life isn’t meant to be easy,” they say.
Knowledge consumed your mind. Those who memorized the most knowledge got the best roles. They’re called experts. Creative thinkers sound strange. Philosophers look lazy. Artists starve. Inventors can’t afford to create their inventions unless they please “The Man.”
Your pure thinking and true goodness was replaced by an illusion built of beliefs in which you were judged on your ability to blindly follow. When you got to the point where you feared judgment enough, you turned away from your True Self.
A True Self is labeled evil by false selves. The false self believes that creativity is for people with nothing else to do. No one can see your thoughts anyway; it’s what you do that counts. You conformed, but then you wondered, “Who Am I?”
Maybe you attended workshops, saw therapists, and did processes and practices; yet you didn’t find the answer. One day, you learned how to let go. You let go of your beliefs regarding social protocol, religion, disease, problems, culture, and sin. You released society’s rules from your mind. You realized that others, even experts, had nothing to offer. Slowly…you started to remember, “I’m a creator. What I think is what I become.”
TRUE and FALSE
The illusion runs on good/evil, right/wrong, or win/lose. The illusion is false…powerless. It’s believed by nearly everyone…but it isn’t real. It’s projected from our collective beliefs. You arrived with the truth, and you didn’t lose it. You can’t screw up letting go. You can’t let go of truth.
EMOTIONS MEAN FALSE
Any thought/belief that has an emotional component is false, even if the whole world believes it’s true. Your mind desperately wants you to believe that thoughts that feel bad are true, but you fight that temptation. You let those thoughts go.
Holy Shit! You aren’t a fucking sinner. The more you let go, the more you despise competition, oppression, and domination. You’d never harm another. You won’t even judge another anymore. You realize that a true thought is win-win for everyone. No belief system can be true. Belief systems separate us.
MASCULINE AND FEMININE ROLES
You realize that those who have masculine (authority) roles make the rules. The judging God was actually a human being…a false, power-tripping leader who imposed his illusion, where he wins and we lose, on everyone else in the name of God. You don’t want to even play good roles in the illusion — they always harm someone.
Leaders in false masculine roles often look like True Selves because they project their judgments and the unwanted half of their beliefs on to people in feminine roles. You now see and hear the false masculine’s incongruence. The leaders see enemies, evil, suffering, poverty, and disease because it’s inside of them. It’s not true; it’s their illusion…their reality. Underneath their mask is a powerless human who’s lost. They’re pawns of the illusion fixing their own projections. We should ignore them, not follow them.
PHYSICAL VS. MENTAL PERSPECTIVE
We were programmed to see a physically-focused perspective of reality which blinds and confuses us. We look at the quality of people’s doing and ignore their thinking. Sadly, false thinking looks normal. True good comes from a pure mind. When our mind is impure, we can look good by doing the right things; but we aren’t truly good.
LET IT GO
The illusion told us that it could give us what we already were. The illusion only lies.
When we can no longer stand the illusion, we let it go. As we let go of the judgments, labels, beliefs, and knowledge/expertise, we’re left with the truth. We remember who we are. We’re creators who bring our ideas to life for the benefit of everyone. Keep letting go; don’t stop until you get to freedom. It’s your birthright.
