If it is Held in Secret, It’s Only a Half Truth

Truth isn't hidden

By Cathy Eck

 

Secret Truth?

It was said that initiates were sworn to secrecy with strict penalties for breaking their vows.  But I question that.  Keeping the truth secret goes against the very idea of initiation, which was to remember the truth and live it.  You can’t hide something if you’re living it.

Initiates realized that everyone was born with the truth inside.  To hide the truth, you must cover it with beliefs or knowledge; and initiates had no need for beliefs or knowledge.

 

Where Did the Truth Go?

The truth didn’t go anywhere; it got covered up.  People who wanted power often entered secret brotherhoods and learned an occult view of life, which has become the normal view of life (or the illusion).  These brotherhoods were NOT creating initiates, but they called themselves initiates.  Hence, the confusion.  Initiation literally means to take one back to who they were in the beginning, their True Self.  The occult teachings created a facade that looked much like a True Self.  The occult thought they had the truth, and still do; but they were and still are jealous and fearful of the true initiates’ real power.

The occult memorized the initiates’ unified words of truth (and their stories) without letting go of the false beliefs in sin, suffering, and problems that they already held in mind.  This turned pure wisdom into useless knowledge (or manure into an iced cream sundae).  To the innocent, the occult looked like initiates.  But the occult cast a long shadow because of their split minds.

This is how level confusion was created.  Level confusion is where we put truth into the illusion, or where we muddy the clear waters of truth by giving it an opposite.  The triangle process demonstrates that truth and the false illusion are two distinct levels of reality.  Confusion occurs when we mix these levels.  This is being done today by most teachers of spirituality and religion; and many innocent people are being fooled.  When we follow someone with level confusion, we get level confusion.

The occult version of the truth was made secret; and of course, people want secrets.  The occult taught things like thinking positive thoughts, the use of magic, visualization, and controlling or willing the mind.  But they didn’t know how to purify the mind — only true initiates knew and taught that.

The occult only had power because of the use of roles.  The good, positive, unemotional side of the occult secret information was  identified with the powerful masculine roles, which were played by those in the occult brotherhoods and religions.  The bad, emotional, negative, or lesser desired side of the illusion, was projected on those playing feminine roles, or everyone else.  The occult also used a lot of power words and symbols, which they claimed had magical power.   Their symbols and beliefs were charged by the innocent believers.  Without believers, symbols and beliefs are empty and worthless.  Initiates didn’t use symbols, nor did they have beliefs, but they often used metaphor in their stories.

 

Finding the Truth Within

To write my first blog article years ago, I had to confront what seemed like an unending fear of the illusion, the occult, and those with power; it took a lot of letting go.  I felt as if I held the entire history of people being tortured, humiliated, or killed for exposing the occult with in my own mind and body.  Today conspiracy theorists and comedians are exposing the occult.  They tend to be people who feel the incongruence of the false leaders; they know something is off.

Of course, I also expose the occult; but I add letting go, which is the way back to the pure view of the initiates.  In order to succeed at initiation, we must become stronger than our minds, expose our own false beliefs, and let them go.  The occult simply use techniques to change their minds.  When we expose and let go of our own false beliefs, we gain in true strength and power; only then can we see through the illusion to freedom.

At one point, I believed that I needed to find the truth in a secret organization.  But my True Self fortunately thought ahead.  I realized that if I got the truth from such an organization, assuming they even had it, I’d be sworn to secrecy.  I also didn’t see (or I should say feel) the type of people I was looking for coming out of those organizations.  Besides, I didn’t just want the secrets for me;  I wanted them for everyone.  In hindsight, I made a very good decision.

The reason I can be so blunt and confident is because I earned what I write about by letting go.  I found the truth inside of me as was done in the true temples of initiation through mentorship.  I write to provide others with validation and techniques for letting go, not to provide information to memorize or use to look knowledgeable.  I can’t emphasize this enough.  If you’re still seeing an opposite to your truth, let go of that which you think is the truth because it isn’t.  It’s a occult clone voice.

 

No Secrets

After years of letting go,  I know that true initiates didn’t keep secrets.  Therefore, all secret information is occult; and you don’t need it or want it.  It’s worthless knowledge.  Knowledge is good for unimportant stuff like learning to type or how to make a chair.  But even the best knowledge can’t be magically turned into wisdom and truth.

The initiates didn’t have to keep anything secret; I’ve followed in their footsteps.  You get more of whatever you live and give.   When you give occult bullshit or half truths, you get more bullshit.  When I give away what I’ve come to know, more comes — just like a steady paycheck.  Much as I try, I can’t give it away as fast as it comes.  But I keep trying because the reward is so damn sweet!

 

Lust, Clergy, Gurus, and A Man Called God

Sai Baba, A Man Called God

By Cathy Eck

 

A Man Called God

Yesterday, I saw an amazing film at the “San Diego Black Film Festival” entitled, “A Man Called God.”  The description read:  “India’s most infamous Holy man, a fanatical cult, fifty million followers, one American family, an epic tragedy…”  I had a hunch I knew the film’s message; but quite frankly, I was shocked that anyone had the guts to tell it.

Years ago, I lived in a small town in Virginia that was filled with devotees of a guru called “Master Charles.”  I watched people slowly lose themselves; eventually, they couldn’t do anything unless the guru gave them permission.  They were possessed.  They thought they were spiritual, but they were really just fucking lost.  You could see it in their eyes.

In addition, I also met many New Agers.  Much of what they said sounded true until they talked about their gurus — often Sai Baba.  I’d feel strong agitation in my stomach — the feeling you get before you vomit.

Ironically, my ex-husband had priest friends, and I felt that same level of emotion in my stomach every time I was around them.  My body simply couldn’t stomach them, but I thought perhaps there was something wrong with me.

For communication purposes, I’ll label this emotion disgust or lust.  But you can’t let go of a labeled emotion.  In truth, the emotion was my True Self screaming that these men or their devotees/believers were speaking falsehood.  I mostly just politely ignored them — unless they tried to recruit me.  Then I honestly told them what I felt.  At which point, I was severely judged.

 

Clergical Lust

Why is there so much lust in clergy?  More important, why do followers turn a blind eye even when they know abuse exists?

Lust was probably the real reason early Biblical leaders had so many wives.  If someone is spewing beliefs (lies) all day long, they become filled with emotions.  Their emotions were saying:  Let go.  Shut up.  But they believe their minds are telling the truth — their strong emotions must be validation of righteousness.

Lots of these men turn their emotion into charisma and dissipate it on followers.  Others gravitate to violence or war.  Many turn to sex.  When we don’t know the purpose of our emotions, and we can’t let them go, we project the release outside of us; and we do awful things to ourselves and others to get emotional relief. 

 

The Story (Spoiler Alert)

Kristoff St. John wrote and produced the film.  I learned that he’s famous for his Emmy-winning performance on the American soap, “The Young and the Restless,”

As a young boy, about thirty years ago, Kristoff’s stepmother became enamored with Sai Baba.  She took young Kristoff to India.  Sai Baba asked Christopher St. John, Kristoff’s father and a famous actor/film artist, to make a documentary about him.  Consequently, Christopher arrived in India with a full camera crew and began filming.

One day, young Kristoff talked to some local college students (something forbidden by Sai Baba).  They told him that Baba had sexually abused them; they were paid to keep quiet.

Meanwhile, Kristoff’s stepmother was becoming possessed by Sai Baba.  The look in her eyes says it all (picture below); it’s a look I’d seen by every devotee in Virginia.  All she wanted was a look, touch, or word from her guru so she could feel whole.

Eventually Kristoff was sexually abused by Baba.  Contrary to orders, he told his father.  The story evolves, and Sai Baba forces the family to leave; his stepmother didn’t leave until her life was threatened.  Other devotees, whom they’d met in India, ended up mysteriously dead.

The raw footage of this movie is old.  But Kristoff and his team put it together beautifully; it’s a work of art with a powerful message.  Kristoff had to heal before telling the story.  San Diego was his first showing, and his ten-year old daughter was present.  He didn’t hide this horror from her — I could see how much she appreciated that.  It brought them closer.  Honesty doesn’t harm our children; it’s our secrets that harm them.

Sai Baba died on Easter, 2011, with a $9 billion estate.  Devotees took his Easter death as a sign, but the truth was they simply took him off life support.  Sai Baba was famous for producing white dust from thin air — vibhuti.  Turns out, Sai Baba’s grandfather was a famous magician; it was a damn good trick.

A Man Called God

 

The Trap

In the east, it’s gurus.  In the west, it’s the Pope, his minions, or the false notion of Jesus as God.  Why do people follow these false teachers?  It’s simple.  We’re trained to follow our emotions — we believe relief is outside of us.  We’re not trained to let go of causal beliefs.

When I felt emotion around gurus, clergy, or their followers, I viewed it as a signal from my True Self to ignore them.  When believers feel emotion, they think it’s a sign of truth.  Devotees say they feel unconditional love from the guru — but it’s actually magnetism.  The gurus and clergy hold a belief that they have the truth; the followers also believe their gurus or clergy have the truth.  The complementary beliefs magnetically link creating a false sense of calmness. When we try to pull away, we feel the strong emotions again; we often run right back for relief.

I felt validated watching the film.  I’d often been judged for my repulsion to gurus and clergy.  The devotees/believers labeled me unspiritual and even evil.  Often I wondered if they were right; I’d fall into seeming endless sadness.   But I’ve learned that if we continue to trust our emotions, and use them as designed, eventually the truth does set us free.

I applaud Kristoff.  Having the courage to share the truth without even an ounce of victimhood set him free of his past.  He’s created a huge crack in the illusion leading the way for others to expose the con men in their life.

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.
