Moving from Bravery to Courage

Lately, I’ve felt the pull to do an article on courage.  Then yesterday, our fearless take-down-the-globalists President Trump tweeted that we were going to learn about the word courage soon.  I realized that my idea was an inspired thought, and I needed to get busy writing. I had some information that would be helpful to others. This article is specific. However, you can apply what I’m demonstrating to any situation.

Before we begin, let me give you a warning. Don’t read my writing like you are reading a novel. You have to read it slowly. When you feel emotions, let go of whatever you’re thinking. I write to give you power tools to let go, and to expose what’s false. When you feel emotions, you generally believe whatever I’m saying. Or you’re judging whatever I’m saying. So stop and notice what’s in your mind so that you can let go. You can’t let go of the truth. So never hesitate to let go. Also, you don’t need to memorize anything I write. You don’t need to learn a thing; in fact, I encourage you not to learn from me. I’m not a teacher or guru; I’m an advocate for freedom.

Pythagoras said that if you can find two sides of a triangle, you know the third side.  So let’s do a triangle together for this topic.  Fear is the unwanted side of the triangle bottom.  Opposite to fear, we have bravery where we face our fear and do it anyway.  Bravery is viewed as the desirable side of the triangle bottom.  Bravery is what we generally expect from a soldier.  They generally have to suppress their fear because they’re in a battle.  That’s why they often have PTSD when the battle is over. Their body-mind is trying to let go after the threat is gone.  But they’ve never learned how to let go. Sadly, they don’t teach that skill in the military.

Our conditioning, when we feel fear, is to either go into bravery or to wallow in the fear.  Going into bravery is done by asserting, i.e., thinking or acting. If we don’t take some mental or physical action, we tend to feel depression or despair, which is wallowing in our emotions. The assertive side of the triangle bottom is the masculine role or mindset. The receptive side is feminine.

You handle each side of the triangle bottom by letting go like I have outlined in other articles on this site. There’s no significant power in either side of the triangle bottom.  However, we tend to feel more powerful on the masculine, assertive side. That’s because we generally project our emotions on to the feminine. Only the masculine role can project. The feminine can only receive. But that assertive false power is nothing compared to the real power at the top of the triangle. Either role on the triangle bottom can get to the top of the triangle from my point of view. I teach people how to let go from the masculine and the feminine roles.

Courage is different than bravery.  Courage is at the top of the triangle.  Courage is a True Self quality, like freedom, peace, or unconditional love.  We’re whole in courage, so we don’t see others as our opposition. Courage is the absence of fear.  

In courage, we’re in win win for all. This can be confusing until you get used to the win-win point of view. Often the win-win outcome is simply the rejection of a projection. I’ll show you what I mean by that in a moment.

So how do we get from fear to courage? This is how we fix every problem on earth without fighting or war. Courage emanates from the inside out. Let’s say that we feel fear, dread, or worry. First, we have to catch any programmed tendency to go into bravery. We might feel the urge to do something physical, to take action; or we might try to soothe ourselves with some positive thinking or affirmations. That’s avoiding our emotions. Most people want to get out of their emotional state. But as you know, our emotions aren’t the enemy in initiation. Our emotions are ALWAYS telling us to turn inward…to let go.

So instead of going toward bravery, like we’re conditioned to do, we honor the fear (emotion).  We notice that the fear is just an emotion…we strip it of its label.  The emotion is saying that whatever we’re thinking right now is false.  Now here’s where things can get tricky, and even advanced people in my programs get trapped by this one.  Our reality isn’t true if it’s coming from beliefs.  So we have to ignore reality, and that can be hard to do. You won’t get results if you try to let go as you stare at reality and proclaim it to be true. You’ve got one foot on the gas and one on the brake. You have to focus on your mind and ignore the physical reality. The physical is just the effect of the mental cause. We don’t ever need to pay attention to the physical when we let go and create from the inside out.

When we manifest from beliefs, we create an illusion 100 percent of the time.  So most of what we have created in the past…whether wanted or not…has been an illusion. I know, it looks real and true.  But it’s real and false. When I was training myself to make this shift, I’d remind myself: “What I’m experiencing right now is the effect of all of my beliefs up until this moment.” Then I’d turn inward and get to work letting go of whatever I was thinking. Then I’d take whatever I got physically.

Now this is where you need to observe closely. People often say to me in a whiny voice, “Cathy I get emotional if I just hear my mother’s name.” There’s a reason for that thought, and it isn’t their mother’s name or their mother. It’s a belief that they have about their mother. Maybe they think that mom is more powerful than they are. Or maybe they can’t imagine talking to mom without a battle. Those are just beliefs to let go. We have to take the focus away from others in initiation. We can’t see what’s in our mind if we are focusing on another person or an outer effect. We’re not looking in the right direction. This is just common sense. But people often lose their common sense when they’re emotional.

The collective illusion has become like a thick fog. People can’t see in it or beyond it. But if you have a bright light, you can see far enough through the fog so that you can move through it. That bright light is a metaphor for our OWN True Self.

If you get to the perspective of the True Self, there’s no fear…no emotion…no confusing fog. You’re totally calm, and you know everything will be just fine. That’s the place of courage. Any action you take will be minimal and easy. This takes some getting used to. People are used to reacting and taking excessive actions.

Let me give you a personal example of courage.  My first year in college, I was in my dorm room studying on a Saturday night.  I was alone.  Everyone else was partying or at a football game.  I had my windows and door open.  Suddenly I heard my door shut.  I looked up thinking that the wind blew it shut, and there was a gang of dudes (looked like about ten) standing there looking at me.  I stood up, facing them; fortunately, I was totally in courage. I had no fear.  I had no thought in my mind.  I asked them what they wanted. They said they wanted sex.  I told them that I wasn’t interested and they needed to leave. I spoke in a very calm voice.  I said a few more sentences that were inspired.  We don’t think when we talk from inspiration.  Words just come out of our mouth.  Every one of them turned and left.  

For years, I wondered why women get raped when I got rid of ten huge guys with such ease.  It bothered me. I felt like I needed to figure out what happened so that I could help others avoid such horrific events. But I also wanted to know what I did for my benefit. If I didn’t know how I did that, then how could I do it again? The key was in understanding courage versus bravery. 

You can make yourself brave, but you can’t make yourself courageous.  You can’t fake courage. You either have it or you don’t. You can let go, however, and then you remember your natural state of courage.  

The True Self doesn’t create pain, suffering, crimes, problems, disease, etc. The reason people are so confused on this simple topic is that they have been following people who I call clones for most of their lives. Clones present their belief system as the truth. But no belief system is the truth. You can NOT get to the True Self on a ladder of beliefs. Every beliefs is divided. One side sounds great and is desirable, and the opposite is generally something that we don’t want in our lives. We have to get rid of both sides of a belief to eliminate problems from our lives. People get trapped because they hold on to the good side of the triangle bottom.

I was a 5’2”, 100-pound woman.  Every one of those guys was huge compared to me.  I later learned that they were a high school football team. They had an intention…gang rape.  I didn’t accept what they projected.  I talked to them like someone had offered me a slice of pizza, and I wasn’t hungry.  “No. I don’t want to do that. So you can leave.”  You don’t talk like that from bravery or fear. You will have emotions in your voice. The triangle bottom is never safe. But when we get to the top of the triangle, we can’t help but be safe.

It’s crazy. We all have so much more power, creativity, and control than we realize because people who wanted to control us, and make us into their slaves, hid the information that I’m giving to all of you. That’s why I was inspired to tell you this NOW. We’re in a time of opportunity when many longstanding, collective beliefs are on the surface. We can let go and make great progress toward freedom personally and collectively during this window.

All problems happen within the illusion.  And the globalists who have been controlling our world from the shadows have created most of the problems that we see in the world. So letting go will ultimately fix this for all. But it takes time. And you can’t let go for another. We all have individual mental containers and free will. That being said, as we get free and expose the illusion as false, we make the illusion more transparent. So it becomes easier and quicker for others to escape.

The key to my safety in that college incident was the power of the True Self.  That’s a knowing.  If you look at the Steps, I was in Step Three.  I wasn’t afraid (Step One).  I had no judgment of those guys (Step Two).  I wasn’t trying to be nice and manipulate them (Step 2.5).  I was solid in Step Three.

You can’t fake courage until you make it.  What if I was in that incident and I did feel fear. Let’s say that I was not in Step Three. That would mean that I believed what the dudes said to me.  I was allowing them to create that illusory reality, and they cast me in the feminine role. But I rejected the feminine part in their little stage play. I had the true masculine role. So they were actually feminine to me. And I told them to leave, so they did. We always win in the true masculine role, but the outcome is actually win win for all. It was win win for them to not get what they wanted. It was a false desire, and it would have caused harm in their life in time. Bravery, on the other hand, does not result in win win; it results in win lose.

Now let’s be practical. To let go in the moment when we’re in a scary situation takes practice.  We get practice by cleaning up old memories from the past. It’s never too late to clean up the past.  Let’s say that I screwed up on that day in college, and I got raped.  Now years later, I find my websites; and I learn to let go. I could let go of the false beliefs in my mind that allowed that incident to happen, and that memory would no longer bother me.  Sadly, we don’t realize that we can let go of everything traumatic from our past and return to our True Self.  So we don’t do it. People stay stuck in their misery.

This is where you find true equality. We all start out in different places with different beliefs, but we can all let go and get to our True Self in one lifetime. Forget that stupid reincarnation and karma bullshit. It’s a choice, and we all have free will; but it’s a choice to be stuck in an illusion for multiple lifetimes.

For most people, emotions build up over time because the person keeps replaying their traumatic memories in their mind.  They label themselves victims.  They might spice the memory with some right and wrong and good and evil.  So they bind themselves on the triangle bottom with layers and layers of second-cause thinking.  They also tend to tell their victim story over and over again.  Often they want justice or revenge.  All of that takes them away from freedom.  And then, they end up with chronic problems in their body or a serious disease. That’s not their fault because occultists hid letting go from us a long, long time ago. We’re talking four-to-six thousand years ago. But that doesn’t matter. It’s never too late to start letting go. 

In conclusion, let’s go back to President Trump’s message.  I looked up the etymology of the word courage and noticed that throughout history, back to the year 1200, the word was related to matters of the heart or spirit.  So it confirmed what I wrote above.  Courage is meant to relate to a quality of the True Self.  Also, the word heart is the same letters as the word earth. We all share the same earth, and our True Selves are connected permanently; our beliefs are what separate us. Having group beliefs is an illusion of unity; it’s not real unity.

So I saw the message as telling us to not believe the reality that we were about to see or were currently viewing; it’s an illusion. I’m telling you to do the same. If you feel emotion about some globalist scam, let go of whatever you think about that situation. The emotion means that it’s false. Use this time and these crazy events to get freedom, not to wallow in fear and worry.

Also, what’s happening in America is not just about America.  We all share the same earth.  If the globalists are completely removed from power in America, they’re also removed for every country. This is important to me; my North Star is freedom for all. You all are part of that vision if you are reading this. But that doesn’t mean that I can do it for you. I can only show you the way.

Nevertheless, you can bet your last dollar that I’m going to do what I can to make this globalist takedown happen. If America regains its political freedom, we all win. But if America drowns, which it won’t, the whole rest of the world would drown with us.

Of course, political success doesn’t mean that we gain freedom over other beliefs systems, and there are plenty of them. You’ll still have more to let go. But this will be a giant step in the right direction.

So Buckle up friends.  We may be hitting some turbulence soon.  But anything that causes fear is an illusion.  Let go of whatever you fear even if it appears to be real and true.  I’ve been watching this closely for five years, and known about this for over twenty years; we’ve got a trustworthy pilot now.  So we’ll be landing safely.  Enjoy the ride.  

Dealing with Fragile Egos as Characters

fragile ego

By Cathy Eck

 

Fragile Egos

When someone holds their beliefs as absolutely true, they become a “fragile ego.” Fragile egos exist at all levels of society.  We have to let them break to get free.

Fragile egos send a clear message:  “If you obey me, I’ll reward you.  If you disobey, I’ll punish.”  They’re clones of the Old Testament false God (imaginary leader of the illusion) who believe they’re good people with the right to judge and punish.

Whoever disagrees with them is evil or bad.  Their biggest fear is exposure.  They lie and impose their beliefs on others in order to look powerful while hiding their belief that they’re weak.

The most dangerous fragile egos wear a nice mask causing them to look like a True Self.  They say and do what the illusion considers good; they generally look happy and calm.  They believe that what you do, not how you think, makes you good.  Good, by their definition gets rewarded.  That’s how the illusion works.

But the true world doesn’t work that way.  Rules and projection don’t exist outside the illusion, we manifest what we believe.

Underneath the fragile ego’s mask is an emotional storm; their actions aren’t congruent with their thinking.  They’re filled with rules and beliefs.  When we disobey or say, “No,” to their demands, their emotions roar.  They don’t see their OWN thinking as the cause of their emotions.  They blame the feminine role because their Adam-and-Eve based mythology gave them the right to.

The fragile ego projects their responsibility and emotions outward.  In fact, when we’re conditioned by fragile egos, we often become overly responsible.  We take responsibility for their emotions because they claim we’re the cause.  We aren’t.

 

The Wall

In mentoring, I call the eruption of the fragile ego, “hitting the wall.”  Letting go looks impossible.  Strong religious, scientific, or political views look absolutely true.  Arguing with the fragile ego does no good.  The fragile ego repeats its knowledge, rules, and beliefs like a robot.  It sees evidence that supports its thinking; it’s sure it’s right.

We only see evidence because we believe the cause.  We hold a really strong belief, but it’s still false.  If we let go of the causal belief, we’ll see different evidence.  When we try to challenge fragile ego beliefs in ourselves or others, psychological reversals kick in.  The thoughts clearly generate emotion, they’re not win-win, and they’re taking us away from freedom; but we can’t remember that the emotion means false.  Until we routinely catch this in ourselves, we won’t catch it in others.

 

They’re Characters

Our OWN fragile ego consists of voice recordings acquired from others who forced their beliefs into our mind.  We did feel emotions when we first heard their words; but we were afraid to challenge them.  Their words are NOW constantly squatting in our mind.

After letting go for awhile, we do come to know that the recordings are false.  And yet, people tell me that the fragile ego is still running their life.   They still behave as the fragile ego would want them to behave or say what the fragile ego would consider socially or politically correct.  They still can’t be themselves.

 

An Exercise

Imagine yourself in the center of your mind; see the fragile egos who have limited your life with beliefs, rules, and knowledge in the periphery of a giant circle looking at you.  They’re keeping you from leaving the circle.

Review old memories in your mind. Bring up fragile ego encounters from the past. Let the fragile ego characters slowly replay the scene.  Discriminate and let go as they talk.  Also let go of any judgments or reasoning that arises in your mind about these characters. Judgment on your part keeps you stuck to them.  You might never see them again; but when you clean up their character in your own mind, you won’t meet that same sort of person again.  Of if you do, you’ll stay powerful.

You can take this even further.  We tend to think that we must change the real life fragile ego characters or get them to stop judging us.  But many of them will never change or stop judging.  Are you going to wait until they change to live your life?  I hope not.

Step into their character within your own mind.  Speak their beliefs, and feel their emotions arise when they speak something false or judgmental.  Assume they can discriminate and let go, and do so.  It’s your mind!  These are your characters! You have the power to clean up their words in your mind.  In this way, we change the past.

See if this fragile ego still has power over you.  If so, ask yourself, “Why?”  Let go of the reasons that your mind gives you.  Clean up more memories.

You aren’t affecting the real life person in any way — good or bad.  When your mind is clear, they won’t bother you.  Their beliefs will only affect them.

Our false minds were meant to be creative containers, separate and distinct from others people’s minds, so we could all create independently.  We’ve never had the right to impose our beliefs on others.  We only do it because others did it to us.

When you realize that you don’t deserve their judgment, they don’t have power over you anymore.  When you understand that their rules are false, they don’t apply to you.  If they say that you’re hurting them, you don’t take it in.  In fact, I’ll often say to fragile egos, “You’re telling me what I should believe; how can I be hurting you?”

Fragile egos can be difficult.  But we can get through that wall if we take our rock hammer and chip away one belief or memory at a time.  Eventually, we’ll break through their highly tinted glass.  We’ll escape their influence without fighting them.  When we clean our OWN mind, they lose their false power.  They can’t harm us anymore.

 

God’s Slave and Religious Extremism Exposed

God's Slave

By Cathy Eck

 

God’s Slave

I recently saw a phenomenal movie at the San Diego Jewish Film Festival called “God’s Slave.”  I doubt that it will ever get wide distribution so my commentary is going to include a spoiler alert.  It wouldn’t have ruined it for me to know the entire true story.

It seemed like a crazy coincidence to see this movie just after my father sent me some Republican propaganda, which of course explained how Muslims deserve to be hated and feared.  The writer was clearly caught in his extreme fear of terrorism.  I told my dad that I neither hated nor feared Muslims.  The discussion ended at that point.

 

Hate and Fear

Hating and fearing others actually perpetuates the illusion.  This is why Jesus said not to judge others and to love your enemy.  It’s not spiritual advice.  It’s practical.

Our false mind tells us that hating, judging, fighting, or criticizing our enemy will somehow make things right.  But that doesn’t work and never has.  When we hate or judge someone, we’re in our false masculine mind focusing on our own projection.  When we love our enemy or let go of our beliefs about our projection, it disappears.  Love and truth are the most perfect healing forces, they dissolve what’s false and leave what’s true.  You can never go wrong with unconditional love.

Fear of the false God made him into the illusion’s superstar.  Fear generates emotion; the illusion feeds off of emotion.  When people stop fearing God or fighting over who’s God is the real God, the whole thought form will dissolve.

My dad’s ridiculous email started off with a very strange line.  It said, “Muslims believe Allah, a moon God.”  Now I don’t know if Allah was originally a moon god or not, and it’s not important.  The person writing the email was Christian; Christians have a fake God too, but they think their God is true.  Jesus was considered a Sun God.  Yahweh was most likely a sky/storm God.  But calling Allah a “moon” God got me thinking.  The Muslim religion is a religion of submission — that’s a feminine quality, like the moon.  If we hate and fear anything in the feminine role, we get fear and hate back.  The feminine is reflective, like a mirror.  So how can you blame the feminine?   You can’t.  What this Christian email writer was saying, without realizing it, was that Christians have created a mean ass projection, a big enemy; and they won’t let go.  They’d rather fear, die, and fight their own reflection.  How stupid is that?  It’s real stupid, but the Christian church has been doing that for ages.

The correction to this problem is so easy.  However, this is the problem with the false masculine role.  It sees it’s reflection in the feminine role; and then blames the feminine.  It breaks the mirror when all it has to do is let go.

 

Religious Extremism

In “God’s Slave,” the main character’s parents were murdered as a young child.  He becomes a slave of the system, and they groom him to become a suicide bomber.  He’s told that the best life comes after suffering, which is not any different than the Christian notion of heaven after suffering on earth.  He’s told to go live a normal life until he’s called.  This is also no different than Christians waiting for the call.  And he’s told that being a martyr is the ultimate.  Of course, Jesus was a martyr.  So it quickly becomes apparent that Christians and Muslims share the same ridiculous beliefs.  Let go of these core beliefs, and the battle ends.  You won’t fight when you don’t believe in suffering, when you know who you are, and when you realize Jesus was an initiate, not a martyr.

Eventually, the protagonist gets the call.  By this time, he’s married and has a child who he loves very much.  He’s got a sweet, compassionate side to him.  But he’s a slave to his handler, his authority, who is a slave to the false God.

He leaves his wife and child and reports for duty.  They have no idea that he’s about to become a martyr.  He’s strapped with explosives and gets in a car filled with explosives.  He is to drive to a synagogue.  But when he reaches the synagogue, which is filled with people, he’s stopped by a young child who is standing in front of his car and won’t move.  He gets out of the car, picks up the child, and hands him to his father.  And in that compassionate, caring act, his brainwashing cracks; he remembers his own child, who is about the same age.  He remembers love; and he aborts the mission.

His handlers are going to kill him as punishment.  They say he has disappointed Allah.  He calmly replies, “No Allah didn’t ask me to kill, you did.”   That’s the realization of someone who has seen the illusion for what it is.  They realize that they’re being controlled by humans, not God.  It’s the key to freedom and the gateway to heaven on earth.

 

Life as a Movie

Each of our lives is like that movie, and we have been brainwashed by our handers to believe the movie we live in is true when it’s really just an illusion.  We’re all slaves to other humans who call us into roles.  But love and compassion cracks our programming.

Like the suicide bomber, our mind was programmed to think we’re being punished or rewarded by God.  We break free when we realize that humans are controlling us, punishing or rewarding us — not God.  We aren’t free until we say “No” to our handlers and take back our free will.  Then we can use the power of truth and unconditional love to dissolve the illusion that has imprisoned us.  We can start allowing our own True Self to write the script for our life.  The protagonist of “God’s Slave” was not killed; he was free.

I Want Freedom BUT I Already Fixed That

Freedom from emotions

By Cathy Eck

 

People are becoming more and more aware of the illusion; they hide from it, vent about it, or feel like they’re stuck in a prison with no parole.  No wonder so many people are depressed.  Others fight the illusion or rebel against it, but they never win.  Why are we so afraid of this giant cartoon?

You see, if we’re bothered by another person’s illusion, it has taken up residence in our OWN mind.  Freedom is about destroying the beliefs in OUR mind that have cast us into roles in other people’s illusions.  We must realize that their illusion can’t affect us if we don’t believe it.  If we believe that we MUST fix another person or get them to see they’re wrong so we can be free, we still share their belief.  The more we let go, the more clear this becomes.

 

Fear Rules the Illusion

Letting go allows us to see that we’re all victims of the illusion; we’re not really victims of each other.  If we’re getting something we don’t want from another or from life, we believe that what we got is real or true; or we believe that the person who cast us in the feminine role has power over us.  Getting free requires using our emotions to go inside our mind and find our causal beliefs.

People want guns because they fear other people are bad and could harm them.  People join religions because they fear their soul was stained — they want a better afterlife or next life.  People adopt diets, exercise routines, or practices because they fear death, aging, weight problems, or illness.  People follow authority because they fear punishment.  People take jobs they hate because they fear being without money or believe they need the benefits.  Most of our doing is simply to counteract fear and paranoia.  It’s not creative.

Paranoia and fear make us vulnerable to clever marketing.  In fact, we can often see our beliefs by looking at what we’re tempted to buy.  We wouldn’t want to fix the problem if we didn’t still believe we had it.  You can be sure that the minute we fix one illusory fear, someone will find something else to scare the shit out of us  Then they sell us yet another product or service.  We win when we no longer believe we need anything from another — that’s freedom.

The True Self has no emotion because it holds no beliefs; the false self is filled with beliefs and emotions.  Emotions are the effect, not the cause.  So if we think we need a gun, we need to look at the beliefs causing our fear of other people.  If we think we need religion, we need to follow our fear of sin to the causal religious beliefs.  If we think we need our partner to spend more time with us, we must follow our emotion to our loneliness.  If we think we need a food or exercise regimen, we should follow our fear of illness or fat to find the causal beliefs that were probably learned from an expert.  As we let go, we’re relieving the experts, which have ruled our lives, of their duty.

Often we think that mental solutions fix the cause.  We’re attracted to spiritual teachers, mental techniques, and practices like positive thinking, visualization, meditation, yoga, Tai chi, EFT, new religions, hypnosis, or NLP because they seem to put new and improved beliefs in our mind or relieve our emotions.  Sometimes we grasp a moment of clear sight, which causes us to let go.  But that is rare and often not easily repeatable.  We eventually grow tired of these techniques too.  Now we’re ready to let go.

By the time that we realize this, we’re often exhausted.  We’ve tried so many things.  We have no desire to do much of anything; and that’s good.  We’re finally tired of fixing problems.   Fortunately, it doesn’t take physical energy to let go.  But it takes desire, persistence, and courage.  Then we see the horrible truth.  We meet all the things we thought we fixed because we didn’t fix the cause; we fixed the effects.  That’s a real “Oh FUCK!” moment.  It looks like we’re going backwards before we can go forward; this causes many people to quit letting go before they even get started unless they understand what’s going on.

 

Getting to Freedom

To get to freedom, we have to heighten our awareness of our own mental processing by witnessing our thinking.  We observe what we’re driven to do and constantly ask ourselves why we’re doing it.  We stop living on automatic.  We must get painfully honest with ourselves; and stop looking for others to fix our emotions and problems.  And we must stop fixing the emotions and problems of others.

“Why?” becomes our best friend.  Why am I feeling that I need to do this, be this, or want this?  Why do I think I need this product, practice, or person?  The answer points to the cause; and it won’t feel good.  But you now know that you were doing all that work or spending all that money only to fix a stupid belief that didn’t even feel good.

We have to realize that every time we fix the effect, we give the causal belief more power.   And that’s why we often feel so much emotion when we stop fixing the effects.  We’ve been covering that emotion with products, practices, or practitioners for a long time.  It’s like going cold turkey with an addiction.  Actually, the biggest addiction on this planet is fixing the effects of our beliefs to eliminate our emotional discomfort.  Nearly everyone has that addiction.   We thought we desired the thing that fixes the effect, but all those emotions were just begging us to remove the causal belief.  When we remove the false belief, the false desire disappears as well.  We won’t see that particular problem again.

 

 

Facing Our Fears the Initiate’s Way

Facing our fears

By Cathy Eck

 

Facing Our Fears 

There’s a popular book called, “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway.”  I’ve never read it, but I’ve heard plenty of people quote it.  The title says it all.

The underlying premise of “doing it anyway” is that our fears (or any emotions) have no purpose except to annoy the hell out of us. We need to get rid of them; and if we want to achieve anything in life, we need to will our fears into submission.  Personally, I think that’s an arrogant assumption.  We were all born with emotions; they obviously have a purpose.

So what should we do with fear or any other emotion?  How were we designed?

 

Initiate’s View of Facing Our Fears

The initiates saw facing our fears in a very different way.  When you understand their point of view, life gets much easier. Initiates didn’t differentiate between emotions.

Try this experiment.  Think of a situation that scared you, and feel the emotion in your body.  Now think of something that made you angry, and feel the emotion in your body.  Now think of something that excited you, and you’ll find the same emotion in your body. You might feel the emotions in a different place or with different intensity, but the feeling of all emotions is virtually the same.

The label that we place on our emotions is an intellectual decision based on the circumstances.  Our emotions don’t have labels.  So taking off the label is the first step to using our emotions correctly.  Emotions aren’t fear, anger, grief, or shame.  They are a signal that our mind needs correcting.

As you know from my other articles, emotions were considered a signal to the initiate that they were thinking wrongly (falsely).  The mind was seen as a container of thought. While we’re all connected as one at the level of the truth (True Self), our false selves were designed to be individual and separate. This was so we could all create uniquely.  Each of us could have different ideas and beliefs and experience different lives.  But as you know, people started to control what others believed.  Humans started to fear and believe authority and accept other people’s beliefs as their own.  We also accepted the belief, “If it’s true for them, it’s true for me.”  Consequently, people became connected (or one) at the false self level.  Big mistake!!!

Emotions were simply a sign from our True Self to let go of the belief that was causing the emotion.  So, from the initiates’ perspective, keeping a belief, ignoring or facing our fears, and doing it anyway was a prescription for suicide.  The initiates understood that beliefs are the cause of our life experience.  The effect is the emotional warning that such cause (belief) is leading us down the wrong path; and if we ignore that emotional warning signal, we may not like the outcome.

To complicate things more, we often think that our emotions are caused by others.  Often they are, but it’s because we believe what they’re saying.  So our emotions are still caused by us.  But retraining our mind takes effort because we were trained to believe others and obey them, especially authority figures.

 

What Do We Do With Emotions?

This sounds incredibly strange at first.  Only your True Self can understand it.  Facing our fears makes sense to our false self; it equates letting go with dying or disappearing.

It took me a long time to figure this out because my own false mind kept replaying its faulty tapes.  But I realized it didn’t hurt to try.  And when I tried it, I liked it.

Our emotions tell us when a causal thought is false.  Most of what normal people think is false.  They’d be emotional all the time so they reverse their internal system creating psychological reversal, causing them to appear unemotional.  They are mentally wired to win in the illusion, not live authentically.

If you let a causal thought go, the related emotions disappear. Imagine that you’re talking with someone who makes you very angry. The anger is caused by the fact that you believe what they said; they were simply spouting off their beliefs.  If another person tells a complete lie, you won’t get emotional unless you believe their lie.  Our bodies are designed to be magnificent lie detectors. People in power messed with our signaling systems so they could lie, and we wouldn’t know it.  Other times we’re feeling emotion as an effect of what we thought or judged about the other person.  Most people think that the emotion confirms that their judgment of the other is correct.  It’s actually proof that their judgment is false. It doesn’t matter what the person has said or done in the past, our minds are wired to help us let go of judgments and see the True Self in everyone.

 

Thoughts Matter

Most people are other directed.  To heal our minds, we must become inner directed.  The ancient Greeks said, “Know Thyself.”  They meant know your thinking — your mind.  Jesus said, “It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth.” He wasn’t talking about food choices or vomit.  He was talking about words.  Our words come from our mind, our thoughts, our beliefs.  Using our emotions as our guide frees our minds from beliefs and purifies our words.

Our beliefs create our reality.  When we listen to our emotions and let our beliefs go, our minds becomes free and our bodies become calm.  We have returned to the mental state from which we were born. The initiates called this being reborn of a virgin.  We begin life again, but this time we know how to stay free.

 

People also believe that life is a struggle, but that’s wrong too. If we do the right struggle by becoming mentally free, we don’t have to do the physical struggle.  Read more here.

Seven Mayan Prophecies

We design our own fortune

What appears to come from without comes from within.  We have the ability and the right to change our minds and make the prophets wrong.

THE SEVEN MAYAN PROPHECIES


What you Don’t Know About Prophecy

While I don’t know the source of these prophecies, they are consistent with the tone of the Mayan philosophy and the prophecies of other ancient elders.  They are certainly good advice.

People often worry about prophecies.  But Edgar Cayce, also known as the sleeping prophet, was very clear that prophecies are merely a warning.  They are not an exact foretelling.  If we are wise, we’ll use the prophecies as motivation for change.  They are harmful if they create fear with no transformation.

People mistook Biblical prophecies for the truth, and they made no effort to change.  People still don’t learn from Biblical prophecies; they simply wait for them to happen.

In short, being a prophet is the worst job in the world because it is important that we learn from the prophecies and prove the prophet wrong.  Prophecy is not a job for people who want approval or need to be right.

 

Time Without Time

The first of the Mayan prophecies talks about a time without time.” It is said that starting in 1999, the human being has to choose to change their attitude and open their mind to integrate everything.  We have to see ourselves as part of the human race, a citizen of the world.  Time is a mechanism of control.  When we live beyond time, we take back our power.

Humanity will enter the great room of mirrors; consequently, we will meet ourselves on every corner and in every relationship.  That which we have hidden under a mask will be exposed.

Materialism will be left behind and will give way to liberation from suffering.  This is good news since we will come to be evaluated based on our character and our love, not our bank balance.

 

Answers Are Within

The second prophecy states that all answers are within. The behavior of all humanity will change rapidly.  Humans will either easily lose control of their emotions or will realize their inner peace.  If they die, it will be from their own fear.  In the language that I use on this website, we will either hold on and go deeper into the illusion, or we will let go and move toward greater freedom.

This prophecy indicates that the energy received from the center of the galaxy is increasing the frequency of the planet and human brain waves.  This is altering behavior and our way of thinking and feeling.  It is why people are so emotional these days.  Our beliefs are rising to the surface of our conscious mind.  This prophecy mentions two potential paths: one of compassion and love and another of fear and destruction. The path to follow will be chosen individually.

In a world that is speeding up, we don’t have time to search for every answer and contemplate our decisions.  We have to know what is right for us quickly and accurately.  That wisdom comes from within; knowing how to discriminate between true and false will become very important.

 

Climate Change

The third prophecy states that there will be a change in temperature producing climactic, geological, and social changes. This will be generated by man’s lack of conscience regarding the protection of the planet’s natural resources and by the sun’s natural cycles.  Don’t confuse this with the fear-based theory of global warming.  This is partly manmade and partly just a natural cycle.

The fourth of the Mayan prophecies points out that the anti-ecological conduct of man and the greater activity by the sun will cause a melting of ice in the poles. This will allow the earth to cleanse itself producing changes in the physical composition of the continents.

 

Fear-Based Systems

The fifth prophecy states that all systems based on fear will fail; man will transform to give way to a new harmonic reality.  This of course includes all religious and political organizations since they all have fear at the core.  This is very good news.

People will become spiritual as opposed to religious.  Religion has served its purpose; and it is no longer needed.  We must remember that only beliefs contain fear; and all beliefs are artificial lies.  The truth never generates fear.

Man will face himself, reorganize society, and continue down the path of evolution bringing him to understand creation.  This is why letting go is so important.   Each time we let go, a little more of the loving creator God force fills our mind and body.  The Mayans said that we would leave the old moral systems behind and start operating from the natural ethics of the True Self.

 

Comet Appearance

The sixth of the Mayan prophecies states that a comet will appear whose trajectory will endanger man. The Mayan culture considers comets to be agents of change that come to invoke the evolution of the collective conscience.

This is the most fear-inducing of the prophecies.  The question comes down to whether the prophecy is about physical transformation, which could be destructive, or a mental change.  My feeling is that if we make the mental change, the physical wake-up call won’t be necessary.  I’ve had many experiences where doom loomed nearby in my life experience; but when I got the message, the problem disappeared completely.

 

No Labels, No Lies, No Borders

The seventh of the Mayan prophecies said that from the year 1999 until 2012, the light emitted from the center of the galaxy would synchronize all living beings and create an internal transformation producing new realities. The Mayans mention that every person can change and break through its limitations with pure thought.  Pure thought comes naturally from the True Self, authenticity is the cure for humanity.

It is predicted that limits will disappear.  A new era of transparency and light will begin, and the lies will end forever.  What more could we ask for?  We will finally behave as creators in the image and likeness of God.
