Letting go from the masculine role is very different from the feminine. In this two part article, I’ll explain why. Remember roles are a key aspect of the illusion; no role is the truth.
In the masculine role, a true leader lets go of the problems or flaws they see in others.
In the masculine role, we see our mind reflected in our view of the world.
I once had a collection of rare books on mental power from the late 1800’s/early 1900’s written by Rosicrucians and Masons who were spilling their guts, usually just before they died. I suspect that they were trying to alleviate their guilt for taking advantage of others who fell for their mind tricks. Positive thinking and mental projection worked for these men because they were playing powerful masculine roles in politics, religion, or business. Their words had power over others because they had authority.
This evolved into the New Thought movement; teachers claimed that you just had to train your mind to be positive and visualize the world as you want it to be. It sounded good, but I wondered, “Where does the negative go? What about reality?” I asked many teachers this question, and their answers were usually the same, “You can’t let go of the negative. You have to rise above it. And rise above it, they did.”
Changing Our Mind
If we’re in a masculine role, it’s relatively easy to change our mind. When I owned a business, I was the leader (masculine role); I could change my mind quickly because I had the power and authority to do so. My feminine role employees blindly followed my vision. Consequently, I needed to make sure my vision was win-win because I had a lot of responsibility. People gave over their power far too easily.
I became concerned about this practice of simply changing our mind to positive or good thoughts. Something wasn’t right.
I noticed that when I corrected a thought in my mind with affirmations or some other technique, I’d see the thought move outside of me to someone who played a feminine role in my life. These techniques caused projection. I was covering up my negative thought and identifying only with the positive. So now I saw the negative in others instead of myself. I wasn’t making the person that way. They already had the ability to play that role; but I also wasn’t helping them change or grow.
This is why people who use New Thought techniques to become positive or good want to teach or preach to all the negative people around them. They’re fixing their own projection, and usually charging quite well for the service. We often call them inspirational or motivational speakers, but they’re master projectors. If you feel your emotions when you listen to them, you’ll realize this quickly.
Rising above beliefs and projecting them on others allows those in masculine roles to live above the unwanted half of their beliefs and the related emotion. It isn’t just leaders of religions and nations that use this technique today; it’s found its way in to nearly every profession.
Let’s say that a person has a fear of disease, so they study medicine. They put knowledge, and often a desire for money, on top of their fear and beliefs. Patients, who share their fear of disease, see them as their role of doctor; they don’t notice the belief in disease or fear that rests in the doctor’s shadow. The patient unconsciously agrees to play their feminine role. If the patient is suggestible and submissive, they’ll most likely leave with a diagnosis. The doctor will see his fear and beliefs in disease projected on them regardless of whether it exists or not.
When the masculine role projects, they don’t see reality. They’ve disengaged from their shadow; they don’t feel when they speak a belief about the patient. But they should. They’re psychologically reversed.
Letting Go In the Masculine Role
I watched my mind to see how I let go in the masculine role. If I succeeded in letting go of the belief in my mind that I saw in the other, my feminine object of projection didn’t have the flaw anymore. It was like magic. I now felt a horrific sense of responsibility. I never wanted to contribute to someone’s problems or flaws. This allowed me to learn how the masculine role becomes the cure.
I turned to all the ancient stories and books that I’d collected, and finally they were clear. In fact, this was exactly what Jesus was doing when he healed people. He played a proper masculine leader. He looked at the person before him and recognized that the flaw he saw, and they believed they had, wasn’t true. It was an illusion. This is the power and beauty of the pure masculine role.
The masculine role falls when it uses it’s role for power, control, or riches. The masculine role must assume that the mote is in it’s own eye. When we’ve purified our masculine role and come across this false leaders, we see the tricks very clearly.
Jesus let go of the beliefs (lies) he saw in another and healed them in his presence without medicine, surgery, or techniques, but he couldn’t keep others in masculine roles from projecting on them again. He often said, “Go forth, and tell no one.”
My eyes were now open, but I moved to a feminine role in my life. I could see projections coming at me, but I couldn’t stop them. I felt trapped in the illusions of the people playing masculine roles. Jesus’ story exposed this dilemma. He was powerful in the masculine role, but when he became feminine to the false politicians, he lost his power. The continuation of the illusion depends on the masses being stuck in feminine roles. I had to find the key to letting go from the feminine role.
