I Don’t Know What I (They) Believe?

BELIEFS

By Cathy Eck

 

What Do I Believe?

People often say to me, “I don’t know what I believe.”  They also say, “I don’t have any beliefs.”  These two comments are the main reason the illusion thrives.

The fact that our thoughts and beliefs create our reality was hidden for a very long time.  During that time, people accepted all kinds of beliefs as explanations for how life worked.  In more recent times, it became known that our thoughts do create our reality; but we simply put that truth on top of our already accepted beliefs.  People try to consciously control their mind to get what they want.  Sometimes they think one thing and say another; that causes projection, which causes relationship hell.  Or they say something they don’t like, and then say, “I don’t believe that,” or “Cancel.”  

If we really don’t believe something, we won’t think it or say it.  We don’t have to cancel our words.  In fact, as we move toward freedom, we find it impossible to be incongruent.  Our thoughts, words, and actions will all line up.  Then we often realize that we still have beliefs that people don’t like when we speak truthfully.  We have to let those beliefs go too.

 

Who’s Creating Our Life?

People of all religions say,  “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade,”  Even atheists say it.  But no one asks a very important question, “Who in the hell is life?”  “Who gave us those fucking lemons?”  A religious person might say, “God tempted us;” a New Ager might say, “The universe taught us a lesson.”  But the comment implies that we didn’t create our life.  We aren’t free if we don’t create our life.  We’re Life’s slaves.

If we’ve accepted complete responsibility for our lemons, we’d say, “I gave myself lemons, so I made lemonade.”  But no one says that.  One of the best ways to find beliefs about anything is to find out why we say what we say.

When someone dies, we say: “Now they’re in a better place.”  Really!  We don’t know that.  What we know is that their body is in the ground or an urn.  We don’t have a clue where their mind/spirit went.  If we think/speak that belief, we believe something like earth ain’t so great.  We can’t get beyond suffering unless we die.

Now people will say to me, “I don’t really believe that shit.  I just said that because I wanted them to feel better.”  You’re trapped.  First of all, you’re taking responsibility for their emotions; their emotions are caused by their thinking.  If you say what another wants to hear, you’re putting them in the masculine role.  You’re giving them power to create in your life because what they want to hear is more important than what you want to say.

Our social protocol is carefully designed to make sure that we have no power over Life.  Listen to what you say, and you’ll uncover hidden beliefs.  Listen to what others say, and you’ll discover what they believe.  The mystery drains from Life real quick.

 

Why Did I Say That?

If we’ve had religious or self-help training, we often train our mind to be quiet or to say the right things.  But trained quiet isn’t real quiet.   Being trained to say the right things might be automatic, but it’s not authentic.  It’s the effect of being highly socialized.  The highly socialized no longer speak what they believe or think; they speak what they believe others want to hear.  Some people have told me that they actually put their attention so completely in other people’s minds that they know what that person wants to hear.  They’re proud of this when they should feel horrible.  I suspect that it’s what most psychics do, but they don’t realize they’re doing it.  Quite honestly, we don’t have any business in another person’s mind.

Letting go of our fake social beliefs is very important.  We’re then admitting that our True Self is what belongs in society.  What doesn’t belong are social customs designed to make everyone alike and predictable.

The highly socialized do what is politically correct even if they resent it.  Their Universe or God or Life isn’t some supernatural being although they’ll say they’re trying to please God.  Their false God is actually everyone they’re trying to please — a whole shitload of human beings.  They live life as if everyone is God and they’re no one…a slave trying to please humanity.

Waking up requires us to realize that what humans want from us is not what God wants from us.  We don’t know what God wants from us unless we’re living from our True Self; we only know what others have said God wants from us.  They say that God rewards and punishes…nope, people do that.  They say God judges; no, people do.  The biggest trap is created by people who tell us that God wants what actually fulfills their needs and desires while simultaneously keeping us small and submissive.  This doesn’t just happen in big business, big religions, or government, it happens in families.

 

Fake Gratitude

When I was an entrepreneur, I felt thankful for the business that came my way.  I told my clients, not God, what they meant to me.  My words came from within; they were authentic.  Today, I bank at Wells Fargo; they train their employees to pretend gratitude.  It never feels good.  My son and I will do anything to avoid having to talk to a teller.  But most people don’t feel so they think the person means what they say.  Robots applaud other robots.

The reason that our false self says or does anything is because it was taught to do it.  It’s a robot.  When we take the memory out of a robot, we get nothing.  When we take the robotic memory out of a person, we get the truth…an authentic human being.

 

 

 

 

 

Exposing the Hidden Shadow of the New Age

Positive and Grateful

By Cathy Eck

 

New Age Trap

The New Age is a particularly sneaky illusion trap because it looks like the path to the True Self.  We force our mind to get positive, and positive is a quality of the True Self.  We use our will to manifest what we want; and being a creator is a True Self quality.  We gain a quiet mind through meditation; and the True Self’s mind is quiet.  We start to succeed and win; and the True Self never does anything that isn’t win-win.

But sadly, the New Age (and self-help movement) is actually like putting ice cream on top of manure.  You see, you were born positive, grateful, with the ability to create everything you wanted, and with a peaceful and quiet mind.  If you feel you need to create those things, it’s because you believe you aren’t those qualities.  So when you put that positive ice cream on top of the negative manure, you get a shit sunday.

Every New Age or self-help technique is about fixing effects.  The false self created the New Age and self-help movements because they keep us seeking for another lifetime or more.  So let’s look under the rug and expose some of the most popular New Age (self-help) techniques.

 

Affirmations

This is an easy one.  If you need to say, “I am rich,” you clearly believe you’re poor.   The affirmation is an attempt to fix the bottom of the triangle by switching to the winning side.  In fact, the affirmation causes projection of the poor side of the bottom of the triangle on to others.  And that projection eventually comes back to you like a boomerang.  This is probably where the notion of karma came from.

Affirmations are always fixing the effect; not the cause.  But if you look under the affirmation, you can find the causal belief with ease.

Let me tell you how this probably started.  Someone accidentally got positive one day (accidentally let go), and they noticed that everything repaired itself.  So they made it into a process.  But that doesn’t work.  Positive on top of manure is a shit sunday.  Remove the negative manure and you’ve got a clean plate.

 

Gratitude

Did you know that the person who wrote the book on the gratitude journal went bankrupt after making millions on her book?  Her own gigantic lack-of-gratitude projection came back to collect payment.  Our projections all come back in time.  The truth is that gratitude is natural; it’s not a process.  Our True Self is always grateful.  It doesn’t have to say it; it exudes it.  If you think you have to express gratitude; you’ve accepted the shadow message that you aren’t grateful, probably because you read her book or listened to Oprah.

 

Vision Board

There are now apps for making your vision board.  This probably got started because someone felt artistic and started making a picture of their desires.  They loved the picture and then watched as the image became reality.  Their vision board became real because they were connected to their True Self.

But that isn’t what happens for most because they put stuff on the board that they just happen to want or like.  It seems everyone puts Oprah on there these days.  Others put cars, houses, spouses, children, and places they want to go.  They behave like they are placing orders.

The things we really want can’t be visualized.  In truth, we want freedom, creativity, joy, peace, and unconditional love.  Try putting those on a vision board; you have to downgrade the feeling to words.  But if you find your True Self by letting go, you’ll create a perfect life that you love without visualizing it first.   The vision board is simply backwards creating, and it solidifies the horrible belief that you have to work hard and use your will to get what you want.

 

Meditation

Why do people meditate?  They want a quiet mind.  I can assure you that when we let go our mind gets quiet and calm.  But letting go creates a virgin mind that is free and creative.  Meditators don’t generally let go of their beliefs unless they do something like what I call western meditation; they usually suppress or project their unwanted beliefs and thoughts on to others.  They teach their minds how to ignore their thoughts and emotions.  Those thoughts have to go somewhere; they usually go onto others who are feminine to them.

Meditation was born in countries that played the feminine aspect of the world.  While the western world was creating dual false thought and keeping the winning side, the eastern world was getting the west’s shadow projection.   Easterners, used meditation to rise above the western projections.

Floating above one’s mind became enlightenment.  Good meditators floated high above their minds and became gurus while the rest of the people in those countries literally lived in the guru’s projected shit.  Shit does flow downhill.  Now the easterners are all trying to think like westerners, and we’re meditating because our shit is coming back at us.

 

You can always expose a false process by taking it to the extreme.  Imagine if you couldn’t get anything unless you affirmed or visualized it.  At some point, you’d make breathing, eating, and walking extremely hard.  Your belief in the process would kill you.  The goal of the false self is death.  The word evil (death) is live spelled backwards.

When you find yourself with the urge to affirm, draw a vision board, put a crystal up your butt, or call in the angels, ask yourself “Why am I doing this?”  Then just let go of the answer and save yourself the time, energy, and money.

We already are what we strive to be; and when we let go of our beliefs, we see our natural perfection.  No one needs to know the truth; we already know it.  We only need to let go of the beliefs that cover up the truth — then we’re free.
