The Triangle Process

The powerful and amazing triangle process

The triangle is the perfect metaphor for understanding the difference between the truth and the false illusory world.

By Cathy Eck

The Hidden Side of Pythagoras

People often tell me that the triangle process (above) is the best thing that I share, but I can’t take the credit for it.  I give it all to Pythagoras.

I discovered the triangle process a long time ago when I was studying Pythagoras.  He was much more than a mathematician.  He was initiated into many mystery schools and eventually started his own.  His understanding of numbers and geometry was far beyond their utility.  He had what I refer to as the mental perspective of life.  He saw through the eyes of the True Self.

There’s a quote attributed to Pythagoras that goes something like this:  “Find two sides of a triangle, and you can solve any problem.”  Now most people think that he was talking about solving a geometry problem, and I did too at first.  But after studying and contemplating Pythagoras for a very long time, I saw a different perspective within his wise words.  I saw the triangle process.

Pythagoras also said this:  “If there be light, then there is darkness; if cold, heat; if height, depth; if solid, fluid; if hard, soft; if rough, smooth; if calm, tempest; if prosperity, adversity; if life, death.”   He also said that we must win our soul back from good and evil.  This was the purpose of the mystery schools — to win back your True Self from the illusory world of good and evil.

Let Thine Eye Be Single

Reading quotes by Pythagoras is much like reading quotes of Jesus.  Their perspective was nearly identical; they simply expressed themselves in different ways.  Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” (Matthew 6:22).  He was talking about seeing from the perspective of unity or the top of the triangle.  This was an ancient mystery school teaching.  When one reached the top of the pyramid, it was said that they could see like gods.  This same concept is represented on the back of the American dollar bill; the Founding Fathers understood the power of the single or so-called third eye.  It was a metaphor; it wasn’t a real thing.  Of course, the occultists love to try to hijack such perfect metaphors by turning them into their symbols.

Pyramid, Eye of Horus, on the back of the dollar bill

The single eye caps the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill, also called the Eye of Horus or Eye of Providence.

The Single Eye

On any topic, we can view our situation from dual eyes or from the single eye.  Many associate the single eye with intuition; that wasn’t the original meaning.  Intuition can be dual; where true single-eyed sight is always unified, more like inspiration.

The bottom of the triangle symbolizes duality.  Originally, duality was simply for creative purposes.  You can see these black words because they are on a white page.  Neither the white page nor the black words are evil or bad.  They’re creative raw materials.  This was called first-cause duality.

Good and evil, win and lose, dominance and submission, rich and poor, pretty and ugly, etc., were all later inventions.  These dual pairs contained judgment; judgment is what causes us to lose our single-eye sight, to fall.  This was referred to as second-cause duality.  We feel incomplete when we accept only one half of duality; we end up with a magnetic relationship with the other half.

The secret of the initiates was that you had to let go of the good and the evil to rise to the top.  Otherwise, your mind stayed stuck in the illusory world.  Religions then made this stickiness into karma, the fall, reincarnation, purgatory, or hell, which were all poor explanations for why holding a belief in good and evil made your life miserable.

If we let go of our duality-based point of view at the bottom of the triangle, we float to the top naturally.  But we have to let go of the good and the evil side, the right and the wrong side.  Then we look through the single eye at the top of the triangle, and we see the true world.

After letting go, we might view the world as beautiful; before we saw a world where things were either pretty or ugly.  After letting go, we hold a perspective of unconditional love; before, we saw conditional love or hate.  We can live in abundance or waver between rich and poor.  We can relate to each other in a win-win manner or in win-lose ways.

What lives at the top of the triangle has no opposite.   Our True Self has that point of view.  When we drop our false perspective, the True Self is what remains.

Third eye on statue

The third eye was said to live between the eyebrows at the top of an eye triangle.  Again it was a metaphor for the single eye.

Projection from the Bottom

Fear is the fuel that keeps the bottom of the triangle (the illusion) alive.  When we withhold the fuel, the fire of the illusion dies out.

We know we’re at the top of the triangle when our sight is pure, and we no longer create opponents to battle or needy people to save.  We have to recognize that the ideas at the bottom of the triangle were created by man’s false mind.  They’re not the truth.  The truth has no opposition.

That which is dual and divided with judgment is simply false; and false has no power except that which we  give it.  When we recognize that beliefs are false within our own mind, they begin to lose power.  When we absolutely know they are false (as Jesus and Pythagoras did), they disappear from our vision.  Our eye becomes single.

The Cross Process: How Creation was Designed

The Cross Process

By Cathy Eck

 

There were many events that pushed me on to my life path — but one of the highlights had to be the night I dreamed “The Cross Process.”  My focus at the time was learning how God creates.  I was highly dissatisfied with the mental, new age, and religious techniques for creation that I had been taught.

 

First-Cause Creation

If you read my blog, you’re no stranger to the triangle process.  Once you master the triangle process, you want to create because the very essence of the True Self is creation.  But how does a True Self create without dipping into the bottom of the triangle?  The Cross Process answer that question.

Just like the triangle process, the top of the cross represents the True Self, unity, oneness, God, unconditional love, and freedom — all things without opposites.  As an element, it is associated with air or spirit.  For creation to occur, we must divide pure thought.

You can see these black words because they’re on a white background.  If it was black words on a black background, I wouldn’t be able to share my creation with you.  So we divide pure thought into two halves in order to create.  In first-cause creation the two halves are cooperative.  Male and female, fire and water, yin and yang, or positive and negative (as electrical charges) are cooperative opposites.  I later learned that the initiates called this first-cause creation.

 

Second-Cause Creation

Creation with opposites (bottom of the triangle) that include judgment such as right and wrong, good and evil, dominance and submission, or win and lose were called second-cause creation.  This was considered occult and evil to the initiates.  But it was widely practiced by leaders who declared themselves Lords.  They were magicians who powerfully projected fear-based thought into the minds of their minions.

The idea of eating from the Tree of Good and Evil was about eating from the second-cause tree.  It’s true that God would have suggested that we don’t eat from this tree, which means that God would also suggest that we stay the hell away from religion, the creator of good and evil.  But God didn’t stop us because like prodigal children, we are welcome to venture out and come back.  We just have to start eating from the Tree of Life again if we want to hang out in Eden.

 

The Effect

The bottom point of the cross is the effect.  It is associated with the earth element.  As you know, initiates never touched the effect.  The Sleeping Prophet Edgar Cayce spoke the initiate’s perspective perfectly when he said, “Spirit is the life, mind is the builder, and physical is the result.”  If physical is simply the result of what you build in mind, it makes no sense to fix it.

The arms of the cross (or tree) are the essence of creation.  We decide whether our creation comes from the Tree of Life or the Tree of Good and Evil by how we split pure thought.

Let’s say that you want to build a house.  The True Self enters the cross of creation at the top.  The bottom is the result or effect.  Just like our physical arms do physical creation work, the arms of the cross do the mental creation work.  We use words (or images) as symbols for the mental creation process.  I find it easiest to use male and female or fire and water words.  Maybe our first thought is that we want the process to be fast (fire) and smooth (water).  We want our house to be sturdy (masculine) and relaxing (feminine).  If we could stay in first cause, the house would manifest with ease.

But our false self kicks in, and we bring our second-cause beliefs into the picture.  We pop expensive house (win for him) and a slowly leaking bank account (lose for us) on the arms of the cross.  With each second-cause belief that we place on our cross, the process becomes heavier.  The situation becomes grave, meaning our pure life force is slowly dying.  The result now reflects our beliefs.  Then we fix the result because we feel at a loss to change things.

To get back on track, we must move back to first cause and let go of the second-cause beliefs that have arisen.  In that way, the result returns to perfection.  Our True Self can’t create anything less than perfection, but our false self can make a mess of anything.

 

Creation in Relationships

Our relationships follow the same pattern.  Let’s say that we give birth to a child or meet someone new, and they are a perfect creation.  Then we allow our second-cause beliefs to shape our new creation.  We see them through veiled, flawed eyes until they match our beliefs about people; and they start to feel that we don’t see them at all.  They run like hell.

Most of us have felt smothered by someone’s beliefs shaping our mind and body.  After awhile, we can’t remember who we are.  We arrived as a True Self creation until we were molded into a false self by others who said they loved us.

 

The Practice

The easiest way to understand True Self creation is to play with the Cross Process.  Take any desire and make a True Self cross.  Then get honest and make a reality cross, honestly admitting what you’re currently experiencing.  The difference between the two crosses are your beliefs.  As you let the beliefs go, the first-cause cross seems more possible; the false-self, second-cause cross changes.   When the two crosses are the same, the desire must manifest perfectly; it can’t be any other way.

It isn’t a quick fix for sure.  But each time we succeed in creating in this way, we free part of our mind until one day we are back in Eden eating from the Tree of Life.

 

Here is an article about my favorite crop circle, a power metaphor for creation.

 

The Big Trick Question, which Leads to Endlessly Looking for a Belief to Let go

Definitions:

Before we begin this article, let me define a few terms that I’ll be using. This is an advanced article. So don’t start here if you are new to initiation and/or to letting go. Start with the earliest articles on this site and https://gatewaytogold.com; then move forward in time so that you are reading the most recent articles last. This article gives you a taste of the very direct writing style that I use in my programs. I wouldn’t normally write an article this direct for the free material. But we are living in a crazy time, and a lot of people who are using my free material to let go can use this information if they can understand what I’m saying.

Clone: When I use the word clone, I’m never talking about a physical clone. I’m talking about a false masculine aspect of the mind that pretends to be the person’s True Self. It’s like a persona on steroids. A clone character or voice operates on beliefs, knowledge, and rules, which it believes to be true. For example, a spiritual clone talks like a True Self, but it’s not a True Self. It says things like “We are all one.” That is true for the True Self level of perception, but it’s not true for the false, illusory level of perception where we all have individual mental containers. We don’t want to be ALL ONE at the false level of perception (the illusion), or we will NEVER get free.

Clones don’t realize that the True Self exists; they can’t see outside of their illusion. They believe that they are the highest point of view. However, there is no higher or lower from the True Self point of view; anyone who views people as higher or lower castes, frequencies, levels of management, perspectives, etc., is speaking from a clone character. Outside of the illusion, there is just true and false. True is not higher or better than false. Nevertheless, when we are in false thinking, we are in an illusion. So hopefully, we are choosing that experience.

Most likely, you’ve been confused by clones in the past…we all have. We put their beliefs into our minds because we were told that their beliefs were the truth. Clones won’t ever tell us that we can let go. Once they trap us, they think they own us for life. Consequently, most people get stuck in the collective illusion. They don’t see any way out. Initiation is the reversal of this clone problem.

Level Confusion: Clone characters in our false minds cause level confusion. They cause us to think that we are thinking something true, when we are not because our overall perspective is divided and false. The words we think might be technically true; but our True Self wouldn’t need to think or say such words. The example I gave above, “We are all one,” is a common, level-confused phrase. We don’t need to speak the truth; the True Self knows the truth already, and we all have a True Self within. The spiritual clone, however, will put that phrase in its mind as a belief; then it will connect with other false minds that share that belief. We don’t want to connect with anyone’s false mind. That’s why we were born with individual mental containers.

The words on the banner of this website explain level confusion: Essentially, you don’t need to learn or speak the truth because you already KNOW it, and so does everyone else. In level confusion, we are operating from the notion that some people have the truth and others don’t. That’s completely false. We can veil the truth with beliefs; but we all have the truth within and always will. Initiation is the process of revealing our hidden truth by letting go of false beliefs.

First Versus Second Cause: The perspective of the True Self is always first cause, or what is known as eating from the Tree of Life. The false-self perspective is always false and second cause because it contains an element of judgment; it is known as eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and evil. Good and evil are second cause because we desire good; and we hope to avoid evil. Thus we judge evil. Therefore, both good and evil exist at the level of second-cause; both are false because they are opposites. Also, goodness on the triangle bottom is defined with beliefs and rules.

The True Self is good without an opposite; its goodness doesn’t need to be defined. We must let go of both sides of every triangle bottom in our mind in order to return to the True Self’s perspective. Initiation isn’t a weekend workshop. That’s why very few people do it. Let me assure you that it is worth every ounce of effort you put into it. But you must be patient.

North Star: Our North Star is a metaphor for where we are headed…it’s our intention or our desire. An intention or desire can be true, or it can be false. If our North Star is physical and within the illusion, we will live within the boundaries of the illusion. If our North Star is mental and outside of the illusion, that North Star (or intention) will bring up the beliefs that we need to let go in order to exit the illusion. As we let go of the beliefs that arise in our mind, we gain mental, emotional, and eventually, physical freedom.

Take this article slowly; stop and let go whenever you feel emotions arise. Do not read this article like you typically read a magazine article. When you feel emotions, it means that a belief is arising for you to let go. Stop and examine your own thinking. You either believe the lie that I just exposed, or you are judging what I just wrote because you don’t like that I exposed a belief that you deem to be true. I write in order to push beliefs up to the surface of the mind; I don’t write to teach or soothe people’s emotions. If you want soothing for your emotions, you are reading the wrong website. I don’t offer emotional soothing. We need our emotions to get free; they help us discriminate.

At the same time, I know that none of you made up this trick that I’m about to expose. If you believed it, and used it, you’re not bad or stupid. You simply trusted someone who was a clone on the throne. Quite frankly, we should be able to trust people with leadership roles. But as of right now, we can’t. The illusion has become a little too serious and real. The person who taught you this nasty trick pretended to have the truth when they simply did not. So just realize that I’m very direct in this article because I want to be clear; but I’m also standing by your side with you. Together we are punching up at the people in power who are promoting these kinds of false techniques. That’s how we all get free.

The tools, techniques, and practices of the illusion are like treading water. You work really hard, but you don’t go anywhere. If you don’t let go of those old, worthless tools, techniques, and practices from your past, you bring the baggage associated with them into letting go and initiation. Then you don’t go toward the North Star of freedom. Thus, I warn people to NEVER combine letting go with other practices, tools, or techniques from the illusion. But often they don’t listen to me. That’s their choice. I don’t demand that anyone let go or do what I say. But if you aren’t letting go, you won’t get freedom.

A Warning: I talk about true health and false health in this article. If we aren’t at the level of the True Self perspective, then we can’t expect our True Self to heal us. So we should take adequate care of our body and seek out any form of medical attention that we need. I don’t view medical care as bad or wrong. It’s an important part of the illusion. But it is part of the illusion, and I write for people who want freedom. So I have to tell it like it is. My advice to people who have physical problems is to follow their beliefs. What we believe is what will work. But of course, we have to know what we believe. This article should help with that.

Before I Reveal the Big Trick…a Little Background

I’d seen this trick over and over again. But so often, I’d let it slide. I assumed that the person knew what I was talking about, and they were just describing letting go a bit differently. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt; but sometimes, I get tricked by the clone characters in their mind when I do that. But fortunately, I don’t stay tricked; and that’s why I’m able to keep doing this work. In time, I came to realize that the Big Trick was always a clone trick.

I’ve actually exposed all the components of this Big Trick, but never directly exposed the trick itself. So we’re going to do that in this article. It’s a weird thing, but often clone characters will not stop trying to maintain control of our minds until we expose them directly as FALSE. If clone characters can find a way to stay alive, they will. They often come up with clever tricks to avoid being exposed; they do keep me challenged.

Many people who find my writing have already been sold a false view of letting go by psychologists, gurus, healers, psychics, spiritual teachers, motivation speakers, etc.; I’m not saying that those people are bad. They just don’t take anyone toward freedom. They provide soothing within the illusion; and since there are a lot of people still stuck in the illusion, they are necessary. But we have to be truthful if we want freedom, these professions don’t help people to escape the illusion; and we want to escape. But don’t get me wrong. I don’t judge any of those professions; judgment would put me in the illusion. I just see them as false. I don’t use them. They are like a choice of food on a smorgasbord that I don’t want to eat. So I don’t put that food on my plate. I also don’t get upset that the food that I don’t want to eat is on the smorgasbord. I just walk past it. Others do like that food; they should be able to eat whatever they want.

If you want freedom, you must understand that if someone teaches you a technique for letting go of emotions without removing the causal belief, that technique is false. Tactics that change one’s emotions from negative to positive are occult and FALSE. Changing one’s beliefs to sound more positive or spiritual do not automatically result in letting go. Physical or mental practices like eastern meditation or yoga rarely result in letting go. These practices are not helpful for initiation because you must do them for life. Also people do such practices in order to fix their mind or body; our ultimate goal in initiation is to not have to fix the effects. But of course, it takes time and a lot of letting go to get to that place.

When you let go of a belief, you don’t ever have to let go of that belief again. You know the belief is false. Initiation is about purifying our mind…not changing it, adding to it, or avoiding it. So we must do an honest assessment of the techniques that we have relied on in the past. It’s unlikely that any of them will be useful to us if we truly want freedom like we want air.

Like I said above, I exposed all of the components of this Big Trick. So let’s do a little review. I told people to use win-win or the emotional test to determine what to let go. Win win is how we expose our masculine mind, or what I label a clone if the person thinks that masculine voice is their True Self; emotions are how we expose the feminine mind or what I label the false self. If our mind was perfect, our True Self would be masculine and our false self would be feminine; our body and life would be the effect. Our masculine and feminine mind aspects would work together as one. We’d only create in first cause, and we’d create perfectly every time. But people come to initiation with a second-cause mind that is filled with beliefs, second-cause knowledge, and rules. That’s everyone’s starting point. We choose initiation when we want out of the illusion. It doesn’t choose us. Initiation becomes our purpose or focus until we are done.

In addition, I’ve written about the Three Steps, which is very comprehensive. When we do the Three Steps, we remove second-cause thinking from the false masculine and false feminine mind aspects. If we go all the way to Step Three, we will get to the True Self; that’s where letting go happens with ease. Letting go from the feminine role requires resolve and willpower; it requires us to punch up at those clone voices in our mind or life. Letting go from the masculine role requires compassion. We have to want the best for the feminine role; we have to work toward a win-win outcome.

The clone characters in our mind don’t have compassion; they are win-lose oriented. Clone characters project the unwanted side of their triangle bottom on to others so that they can have what they want. The clone has no desire to let go. The clone wants to keep its throne; it wants to remain mentally or physically superior to others. Clones are convinced that whatever they believe is TRUE or at least right. They want to keep ruling over our mind, body, and life. In initiation, however, we want our True Self to lead us. Imagine that we want to live in a beautiful treehouse; but every time we try to get on the ladder to the treehouse, a crocodile clone with lots of beliefs bites our butt and pulls us back down into the second-cause swamp. We do what we must do; we take these crocodiles out one at a time. Eventually, there are no crocodiles pulling us back into the illusion. So we can go up and down the ladder to and from our treehouse with ease.

I also shared the triangle process, which is a powerful tool for cleaning up our minds. When we look at a triangle, we have the True Self’s point of view at the top. Take a topic like health. True health with no opposite is natural. But most don’t see health in that way because that point of view is outside of the illusion. When we know that heath is true, we don’t need doctors, healers, cures, or even herbs or vitamins because we are not creating disease from the true mental perspective. The True Self doesn’t believe in disease. Emotions and pain would simply be a signal for the us to let go of our current thinking. Our True Self is always giving health to our own body and to others. But if someone has a medical clone in their mind, they can’t receive that level of perfect health. They only know health on the triangle bottom, which is the normal view of health and sickness.

At the bottom of the triangle, we experience health in the second-cause illusion, where everything is divided into opposites. We have the doctors or healers who hold the knowledge of disease and how to fix it in their masculine mind; they are the mental cause of the problem called disease. Usually the doctor or healer is not the clone on the throne at the top of the pyramid of power. But they share the belief system of the clone on the throne.

On the feminine side of the triangle bottom, we have the patients who are living the physical effects. If the doctor or healer lets go, they slowly move off of the triangle bottom; they ultimately won’t believe in disease anymore. They’ll free themselves from the medical illusion as well as all of their patients. They will no longer see unwanted health (disease) effects in the world. So they’ll have nothing to fix anymore. Their role of doctor or healer disappears because they have let go of all the beliefs that made up that clone character in their own mind. They have lost their role in the illusion. But they are much more than that illusory role; they are free, and they will continuously give the gift of health and freedom to others whether the others can receive it or not.

This is hard for people to grasp until they let go for quite a while. Often a role like doctor or healer feels like a purpose; it’s often the person’s status, and their way of making a living. The person doesn’t realize that there is something more perfect waiting for them. That perfection comes from their own True Self. They won’t realize that perfection until they let go mentally and physically of that illusory role. The role keeps them on the triangle bottom within the illusion. A doctor or healer can’t exist without patients…these roles are two sides of a coin, and you can’t have only one side of a coin.

Sometimes, the person who is a doctor or healer truly desires freedom, but they refuse to let go of their role even though it no longer feels good to perform that role. So they experience an unexpected event where they suddenly lose their career or their ability to do their career; later on, after being forced to drop that clone character from their mind, they realize that the seemingly horrible event was actually a blessing in disguise. But such changes can be traumatic. Initiation is not about ripping people’s lives apart. It’s meant to be gradual and safe. We let go of one belief at a time. As we do that, the clone characters just dissolve from our mind. We don’t miss them at all.

Let’s say that the doctor or healer challenges their beliefs every day while they continue to do their job. They will move from the false masculine expert to the compassionate True Self over time. They will find themselves telling their patients that there is nothing wrong with them. The last doctor that I ever went to was that kind of a doctor. I will never forget him. I received his gift of true health; I was done with the medical system. We connected at the True Self level. But I’m kind of usual. He probably saw hundreds of patients a week; and they just wanted a pill or an herb to take away their symptoms.

That sweet doctor was no longer a clone; he had become pure health. He no longer believed in disease. He had nothing to offer people who did believe in disease. They didn’t know how to let go of their false beliefs, and he didn’t know how to help them let go. I could tell that he even felt awkward with the title of doctor or healer. He was very close to ditching that job. He just couldn’t do it anymore. I personally, think that many people are experiencing collective initiation around this health topic right now. It has become crystal clear that the medical system is corrupt and worthless. It’s easier than ever to see that the system causes disease and suffering. This looks like a big problem to most. But it is actually pushing everyone to let go of all the beliefs that they have around health. It’s time to find health within and stop depending on knowledge and expert clones to keep us healthy. In the end, many people will say that this rough time was a very good thing. Letting go of their beliefs, however, would have been a lot more sane and gentle than a faux pandemic. When we let go, we don’t have to quit our job or leave our marriage; we don’t have to hit rock bottom. We just grow out of anything that isn’t true for us. One door opens just as another one has closed. We move from an illusory life to our true life.

We might not have a doctor or a healer role within the illusion. But when we believe such people, we put a copy of their beliefs into our mind. So we create a medical clone in our mind. Often we meet that clone character in another human being who plays the doctor or healer role on the illusory stage of life. That person who plays that role will do what we expect them to do, which probably isn’t what we want to experience. Today people add diet beliefs, personal training beliefs, and wellness beliefs to their medical clone. They also add alternative medicine beliefs to their mind. All of those beliefs are based on the same foundation that disease is true. It’s real, but it is false. That’s why we can let it go.

So nearly everyone is very much a part of the collective illusion on this topic of health. We all start initiation with beliefs about our body; and it takes time to let all of that go. We let go of one belief and label at a time; it took me a few years to get rid of every belief that I had about food, body, exercise, disease, etc. Until I got free of the beliefs that I had stored in my mind, I would feel emotion when someone brought up a disease label. That’s how I knew that I still shared the person’s causal belief. So I’d follow the emotion and let go of the belief that I shared with them. That freed me from the problem, and I became a supporter for their perfect health. Often, I’d no longer see the problem in them just like that sweet doctor that saw me in that way. But oddly, if they still had a medical clone in their mind, they would get upset when I wouldn’t agree that they had a health problem. They wanted me to tell them how to fix their problem, not tell them that their problem was false. What can I say? If they want their illusion, they can keep their illusion. But I still won’t see them as deficient in any way.

I’ve also told people to never try to figure out their minds like people do in therapy. But people had already developed that bad habit from hanging out in New Age, therapy, and self-help groups when they found my writing. They’d become addicted to connecting the dots so they could understand their mind, their relationships, or their problems. They would describe what they were doing as working on themselves, self-reflecting, or processing. Let me be clear and direct about this; I only have one word for all of that worthless inner work…bullshit! None of those things are even close to letting go. I honestly don’t know what in the hell people are doing when they are in therapy, and I have a master’s degree in psychology. When anyone describes therapy to me, it sounds like someone playing with their own poop. They are all stuck in level confusion. Thinking about the mind doesn’t get us to the true mental perspective. We have to let go to get to the true point of view.

Let me tell you a little secret that you might not know. Psychology, self-help, the New Age, the prosperity gospel, religions like Unity, progressive politics, and other belief systems of the same ilk, were all modern-day occult scams invented by the globalists (cabal of elitists who want to control the whole world) for the purpose of getting more people to use their minds like they do, which is backwards. The globalists are super clones who think they deserve the throne for the whole world. They rule the entire pyramid of power. People follow them because they are told that such people can lead them to money, success, fame, or some other physical false desire. Or they are told that the people on this pyramid of power can get rid of their emotions or fears; usually, however, they are the cause of them. Or they are told that such clones can lead them to their spiritual self, enlightenment, or some other mental false desire. None of us need such clones in our lives; we were born spiritual and enlightened…everyone was. If a desire is true, we will get it by letting go of the beliefs that are in the way of its fulfillment.

Initiation is real simple; but no one will be honest and tell you what I’m saying because they have a belief system that they want you to fuel. Belief systems can only exist with the false fuel of emotions generated by the power of numbers of believers. Our True Self does not fuel our beliefs or our false desires. This Big Trick that I’m about to share was clearly born from this very popular cesspool of worthless psychological tools. It serves those who want to keep the illusion alive. Even if you don’t want total freedom, don’t give these clones your false power. They will never give it back to you; they are hoarders of false power.

The Big Trick Question

The Big Trick is quite simple, but it’s complex to expose as false. The person asks themselves: “Why or how did I create this problem?” Now stop and think about that question. It sounds like a good question right? But the person never answers the question. They generally think of lots of answers, but they don’t ever answer the question. Occasionally, someone just gets silence when they ask the question. They generally practiced eastern meditation, and they need to kick that meditation clone out of their mind.

Let’s first answer the how part of the question in general terms. The person is holding on to a second-cause triangle bottom in their false mind that isn’t true. Or they are following someone, like a doctor or guru, who holds the causal belief in their mental container as true. To get rid of an effect, we have to remove the cause. If the cause is in someone else’s mind that the person follows or obeys, they need to let go of following that person; and they need to let go of the causal belief that they share with that person.

Now for the why? They still treat that causal belief as true, which often points to a clone character in their mind or life; they think that they need to hold on to that belief for some reason. Now once you answer the question generally, you start to realize that the question is not simple to answer. There could be fifty causal beliefs for one effect. The person might be following a powerful clone, and they are terrified of letting go of the beliefs that they share with that authority figure. The person might have been given a label that they can’t let go because the label came from a trusted expert. I could go on and on. Roles are always involved in the manifestation of a problem within the illusion. But roles will never come up when we ask that question.

Here is the question that we need to ask. Why don’t we know exactly what to let go? Why can’t we see cause and effect with ease? The short answer is that the clone characters in our mind or life are asking that Big Trick question; and clones have no intention of ever letting go. Clones are complexes of beliefs. If they let go of their beliefs, they will disappear or die. Clones are the part of our mind that is afraid of dying. Our True Self never dies. I’m really good at seeing cause and effect because I’ve had a lot of practice; but when someone asks me this question, they are always speaking from a clone character. So I can give them the perfect answer, and they will not let go. The purpose of this question is to avoid letting go.

The clones in our mind want to make it impossible for us let go so they can remain alive and run our mind, body, and life. They are like parasites or squatters. They want us to think that letting go doesn’t work or doesn’t exist because letting go is their demise. When you hear a voice that says, “letting go doesn’t work,” or “letting go isn’t working for you,” that’s a clone talking. You need to let go of whatever they are saying; it’s false.

In thirty years of exposing the mind, I’ve not found one time when letting go didn’t work if the person let go in the way that I told them to let go. Now let me say that another way: Other people, including many expert clones, use the term letting go in false ways. I didn’t say that other ways of letting go work; they don’t. I said that the way I explain letting go always works. That’s not being arrogant; it’s called experience. Make sure you are clear on that; the Big Trick question is someone else’s way of letting go. Their way does not work; my point is that it was not designed to work. It looks like an exit, but the door below the exit sign doesn’t open.

Some Variations of the Big Trick Question

If the person who asks this Big Trick question is with like-minded friends, they often present that question as a topic of discussion; the friends work on the person’s mind together. They each toss out beliefs that might have caused that problem like they are solving a puzzle together. What good will that do? No one is letting go. They are trying to link cause and effect intellectually, to connect the dots, which doesn’t work. When we are thinking and asserting ideas, we are in the masculine aspect of our mind. I’ll explain the feminine approach to letting go in a moment. From my point of view, this idea exchange looks like people playing with each other’s poop. Everyone in the illusion has beliefs that are like giant piles of manure. To get free, we need to get rid of our manure pile. When we talk about beliefs, we are literally exchanging manure. When we cover the manure pile with new beliefs, we are putting ice cream on the manure and calling it a sundae.

So let’s say that the person come up with a very plausible reason for this problem intellectually. They would take that ice cream reason and pile it on top of their manure pile. That’s not letting go. They might feel some momentary satisfaction for having solved the riddle, but the problem will occur again. They didn’t remove the mental cause.

When people do this trick with me, I give them an answer that supports freedom. I tell them to let go of whatever reason they just tossed out on the table; it’s false. If they toss out another reason, I tell them to let that belief go too. I’m talking to them from the feminine role. I’m listening and discriminating. It doesn’t matter what belief they throw out; it will not pass the emotional test. I’m being their emotions since they are completely ignoring them. That’s why they can’t discriminate. If they were feeling instead of thinking, they would know that they needed to let go of every answer they heard in their mind. They would also know that another person can’t possibly tell them what is in their mental container unless they are falsely connected to them; then they’d have a different problem to work on. Why are they two halves of a whole with that person instead of two whole people?

Once I take the feminine role and discriminate for the person who asked the Big Trick question, the game stops. It was a clone game. Clones don’t want the truth, and they don’t want to let go. They want to play with each other’s poop for a few hours and call that a relationship. They want to agree that there is no resolution to this problem. Or they want to put ice cream on the manure and feel great that they can’t see the manure anymore. Of course, that ice cream will melt…I can assure you of that.

So let’s say that these two friends get to the eventual point of no resolution. Does that mean that no belief caused that unwanted effect? No, it means that they didn’t have access to the part of their mind where the belief was stored; in my experience that is because a clone character doesn’t want them to let go of that belief. If there was NO causal belief, then what caused the problem? Oh that is a much better question to ask: Who or what caused this problem?

Now you will get answers…lots of them: God’s will, it’s stuck in my unconscious mind so I need hypnosis to dig it out, Cathy’s wrong (clones love that answer), letting go doesn’t work for me, I’m being punished for something I did in the past, I don’t know and will never know, karma, it’s a soul wound, mind control, the boogie man, overall injustice…I’ve heard it all. Those are all beliefs to let go. In fact, any or all of those reasons combined might be why you create problems that you don’t want in general. Do you see why the question is worthless now? Not one of those answers is win win for all. But in most cases, people will state those answer as if they are absolute facts of life. They will even argue with me; they will demand that I prove that their win-lose beliefs are false because there are a lot of clones that believe those beliefs. Clones feed off of the power of numbers.

This very common conversation looks productive on the surface; in fact, some people call it a deep conversation…lol! But it’s not deep at all, nor is it productive. We have to go toward the feminine false self in order to go deep. We have to get out of the masculine clone mindset. Every belief in the clone’s mindset is viewed as true. Clones love you when you agree with their beliefs; and they hate you when you don’t agree.

Some people do this Big Trick question with their therapist; it’s still unproductive, and it’s still not deep. The therapist isn’t going to say that their patient’s beliefs are all false. The therapist is in the illusion where discrimination is unlikely at best and impossible at worst. Also, therapy is done intellectually. Even hypnosis is done intellectually; I used to do it. But I did it different from everyone else. I used it to help people let go, and the results led me to what I share today. I didn’t want people to have to pay me $100 an hour to let go of every belief in their mind. We all have thousands of beliefs in our mind to let go. We need to know how to let go on our own.

Outside of the illusion, we know that we can’t let go of the truth; and that’s a very good thing. We don’t want to let go of the truth. This fact assures that we won’t screw up and accidentally let go of a true creation like our arm or our kidney. But the clones in our mind falsely deduce that we can’t let a belief go because we have relabeled it as true. That’s a lie. A belief is never true; it doesn’t matter what our mind has labeled the belief. The word BELIEF has the word LIE within it for a reason; all beliefs are false. So there is no belief that we cannot let go.

In any moment, we can go into our mind and find the causal belief, which we can let go if we realize that the belief is false. False is the key! Or we can go toward normal thinking, logic, and reasoning, which will keep our illusion fueled. Normal thinking is mostly geared around finding solutions to our problems; initiation is about letting go of problems so that we don’t need solutions anymore. There is a big difference.

The Big Answer to the Big Trick Question

Recently I asked someone why she asked herself that question, and she gave a seemingly good answer; nevertheless, it was a false answer. She said, “I’m being responsible. I’m acknowledging that I created this problem; I’m not blaming my parents or anyone else.” Well, that sounds like something someone would say who has a strong desire to find the causal belief and let go. Right? However, that was a clone character in her mind pretending to be a True Self. Here’s how I know that.

Responsible and irresponsible are a second-cause triangle bottom. We judge irresponsibility. The True Self is automatically responsible. It never blames another. But also, our True Self never creates a problem. If we are truly responsible, then we will let go and only think from first cause so that we don’t cause problems in our life or the lives of others. This is subtle, and it’s hard to see until you let go for a while.

This Big Trick question is the same trap that globalists, gurus, and spiritual teachers use to hook their followers for life. They are clones who want to keep the masculine role in every relationship at all cost. They peddle belief systems that they relabel as the truth. These clones will never become feminine to anyone. I became feminine to others over and over again when I created the Gold Circle; and I found out what these clones did to people’s minds because their followers would try to do it to me. We do to others what was done to us. So these clones on the throne do not impress me at all. They never let go; and they never tell their followers to let go. That’s how you detect a con artist. My job is to expose them as false so that their followers can gain the freedom that they truly deserve. But don’t get me wrong. I can’t do the cleanup work for their followers; I’m not in their mental container. I can expose what is false. I can even explain why it is false. I can even unconditionally love the person to make it easier for them to let go. But everyone has to let go and bring their mental container back to the virgin state through their own efforts. That is a very good thing; when you do the work of initiation, you come to know your mind. You know how and why you fell into the illusion. So you don’t ever fall again.

Here’s another subtle word trick used by clones. The aspect of our mind that creates is our True Self. Our creative life-force and desires flow though the false self in order to divide our thought in first cause; and that is how we effortlessly create. But we don’t ever have to ask our True Self how it creates. It’s obvious. It just does it. When we fell mentally by accepting second-cause thinking into our minds, we had to work hard mentally and physically to manifest; we had to use beliefs and willpower to manifest what we desired. Manifesting is not the same as creating. Precision of language is very important in exposing belief systems as false.

In the Big Trick question, the person asked how they created their problem? They didn’t create it. They manifested it. The clone was hijacking what’s only true for the True Self. The clone can’t manifest a true desire; thus it cannot create.

People bring this error to me all the time in a slightly different format. That’s why I wrote this article. I want to be able to answer this common question from now on by giving the person a link to this article. They say, “Cathy, here is my problem. Now tell me what to let go.” They want me to be responsible for their problem or error of thinking. But I didn’t put the causal belief into their mind. In addition, I have a separate mental container; so how would I know what is in their mind. I know they have manifested an illusion. Like I said above, I can often detect the cause of their problem by the context of their email or the description of their problem. The cause is always really close to the effect. But they don’t want to know what to let go. They want me to take their projected effect or tell them they are a victim and letting go just doesn’t work for them. In that way, they don’t have to deal with the actual cause.

I do know of one man who is no longer alive…he was a German doctor who generally saw life from the mental perspective. But he must have had severe responsibility issues. People would come to him and ask him to get rid of their health problems. After a bit of questioning, he’d stick their asses in his car and take them to the person who held the causal belief in mind. Then he’d force the person who was holding the causal belief to let his patient off the hook. I wish he had made videos of that; there isn’t enough money in the world for me to do that gig. But when he did this, people healed from nearly every disease known to mankind. It makes sense to me. He got the person in the masculine role to take back their projection. But part of the reason that the person with the cause let go was because he came on strong with a voice of authority as a widely-respected doctor. He was using his authority to punch up, and I totally respect him for that.

This Big Trick question tells us something about the clone that asks the question. In my experience, the clone usually feels like their life is unjust. They tend to think that clones should have perfect lives; they should live like royalty. They should have it all. This is more level confusion. Clones don’t deserve to have it all. Clones always have lots of false desires because they are never satisfied. They are never satisfied because they are never living their true life.

The clone thinks that they are not getting what they deserve according to their rules for manifestation. Well that means that their rules aren’t popular enough. The illusion works based on the power of numbers, repetition, and longevity. Our oldest beliefs are in our false self; clones project those unwanted beliefs out on to others. In my experience, the clone usually asks this Big Trick question when a projection has boomeranged back at them. They thought that problem applied to someone else, but the person who was the object of their projection did something mentally or physically to free themselves of it. Now the clone appears to be blindsided when it is the cause of its own problem. That’s why it asks the Big Trick question. It doesn’t want to be exposed; it’s deflecting.

This Big Trick question is like a magic trick where the magician says to look here, but they are doing something over there. Clones create illusions, so they love deflection. You’ve seen this with the American Democrats and Donald Trump if you have eyes to see. They always blame him for what they are actually doing. They are deflecting the blame away from themselves so that no one holds them responsible for their shenanigans. The Democrats are globalist clones through and through. The Republicans aren’t innocent; but they’re generally cowards who are afraid to punch up at the clones in power. The globalists want to win; and no trick is too harmful or too disgusting if it gets them what they want.

The people who ask this question often want to understand their mind; that’s fine. But in initiation, our focus is on purifying our mind. Oddly, we get true understanding when we do that. True understanding requires us to become feminine to another or feminine to our own mind. It requires us to listen and to feel our emotions. The masculine mind asserts; it doesn’t listen. That’s not bad; listening not it’s job. Don’t confuse this with men and women; both men and women have masculine and feminine minds. Also, the mind is not the same as the brain. But we’ll leave that for another time. When our masculine mind is win-win oriented and free of second cause, it’s powerful and effortlessly creates. In my writing, I tell stories that are full circle. Most are from my own life. I started out free on a topic. I took on beliefs, and then I let them go. Then, I had understanding. So I share that understanding by exposing whatever I let go to get free of that situation. Then others can copy my example. But I didn’t get that understanding intellectually. I only got it by letting go. I also wasn’t connecting dots or finding reasons. However, after letting go, the dots were all connected; and I knew the reason that this situation had happened to me.

People usually find my articles when they no longer want to live within the illusion. They’ve had enough. They don’t even want the fruits of the illusion anymore, so often they feel very unmotivated. I don’t advertise or use keywords to attract people to my websites. I’m not easy to find at all. People generally find my articles because their True Self is sick of the clones who are ruling their mind, body, and life. On the True Self level, they want freedom. Once they start reading what I write and allowing it to sink in, it wakes up their True Self. They start letting their True Self out of the closet. They set their North Star on freedom. Now the clones in their mind feel threatened. So the games begin.

Initiation appears to be a war between the clone voices in our mind and our own True Self; there can be only one winner in the end…it’s always the True Self. The clones can’t win the war. However if a clone character wins a battle, they keep their role within the illusion for a while longer; they get to keep their beliefs, and they get to continue to think that emotions mean that their beliefs are true (psychological reversal). In every moment, the initiate either lets go of a causal belief and the True Self wins that battle on that topic; or they allow the clones to play their silly games, avoid letting go, and fuel the illusion so that it looks more real and even more true.

These clones think that if they can get me to agree that they are letting go, and they are the True Self, then they can keep their throne. However, this isn’t my first rodeo! So for all of your clones that like to play that stupid game with me…it won’t work anymore. I’m done playing the Game of Thrones with clones. So you can let the game go, or you can go back to kissing some guru’s dirty feet. That’s your choice. You always have free will in my world; but I also have free will to tell your clone characters that their beliefs are FALSE. Eventually, you’ll realize that my exposure of your clones is exactly what you truly desire, or you wouldn’t hang out with me. I support your freedom and your True Self as a trusted ally. Your clones don’t like me because they hate your OWN True Self. They can’t exist once your True Self is back in charge, and they simply don’t want to die. In the end, you are the owner of your mental container, so you decide what you want in it. I suggest that you make it a CLONE FREE ZONE!

The Three Steps

There are the three Steps to mental and emotional freedom

A few months ago, I brought up the Three-Steps for letting go on Facebook, and several people asked if I’d explain the Steps in a free article. The Three Steps are what we do naturally to keep our mind free and clear. But most of us didn’t remain free. What was natural has been lost. We don’t use our minds as they were originally designed. We have to let go to remember our natural abilities. In initiation, we use techniques that are a lot like priming a pump. Once the pump is primed, the water just flows.

While priming this mental pump, we’re looking for the reason that the pump needs priming at all. We want to look for the causal beliefs that stopped us from doing these Steps naturally. Then, we let those beliefs go.

The Objective

Most everyone gets stuck in Step One. Some people get stuck in Step Two because their mind tends to judge and compare. People pleasers of all varieties tend to get stuck in Step 2.5; they soothe their minds and everyone else’s mind too. The objective is to get to Step Three (unconditional love) on any, and every, topic. That’s our natural state. That’s the place where our True Self leads the way.

Our mind is really quite simple. Our True Self is pure and perfect. We’re all connected at the True Self level. When we lead from our True Self, we think, say, and do things which are win-win for all without having to think about it. We call that first-cause creation.

Our false mind is actually an individual mental container that is meant to serve the True Self. When we fall into second-cause thinking, our false mind holds our beliefs, unnecessary knowledge, and memories. That clogs up our container; it gets in the way of our natural creativity.

Our mental container should not be connected to any other person’s container. We don’t want a false-self connection with any other. Most people have false-self connections with individuals, family, groups, and even the collective mind. That’s why they feel so out-of-control (stuck in Step One). Such people gain false control by deciding that their beliefs are true. That causes them to be stuck in Step Two.

Letting go is meant to be easy; the voices in our mind want to make it hard. That’s because those voices want to remain in power. I call those domineering voices “clones.” Clone voices in our mind pretend to be God or our own True Self. As we let go, we realize that these voices are just recordings.

Physical to Mental

The Three Steps are designed to get you from the physical level of perception, through the false mental level, and all the way to the True Self, or Step Three.  Step Three is where letting go becomes easy. Tackle your most difficult memories, and your most rigid clone voices, when you get that sweet, True Self clarity.  Dive right into another subject when you get to Step Three.  Too often people take a break when they’re in that golden zone.

When you aren’t in that golden zone, letting go seems hard. You’re most likely trying to let go from a clone character in your mind, and that character doesn’t want to let go. It wants to rule over you. Such voices will often go through the motions of letting go. They’ll talk about it; they’ll become experts in it. But they won’t actually let go. Reading about letting go isn’t letting go. It doesn’t even get you a hair closer to freedom.

Here’s a trick that I used when I would get stuck. I’d let go on some topic that didn’t matter much to me. I would turn on the news and find someone in trouble. Or I’d think about a friend that was having a problem, and I’d let go for them. That would get me to Step Three; then I’d go to work on the issue that seemed impossible to let go while I was in that golden zone.

When you get to Step Three, you have the big picture. You can discriminate easily. You see the causal beliefs that are keeping you stuck, and you know they are false.

The Three Steps contain no useless steps, unlike the Twelve Steps.  You must at least pass through each step on the way to the next step.  In order to help you see this, I’ve created a clone diagram (shown below).  This diagram is not our natural state. It’s what the typical mind looks like within the illusion. In the end, the clone’s voice disappears. The True Self takes the lead and becomes the main circle, and the false self works for the True Self in first-cause creation.

Let’s Begin

You might want to choose an easy topic and work on that topic while you read these Steps. I always recommend that people let go while reading my articles. I expose beliefs and make it easier to let them go. You want let go in your pajamas with a hot chocolate instead of needing to let go on the freeway in rush-hour traffic.

Step One

In Step One, you’re completely in the feminine mentally, and you probably have a feminine physical role. You feel a lot of emotion, and you probably feel quite powerless; the cause appears to be coming from someone else…the person who’s playing the physical masculine role in reality.  

We’re all thrown into Step One as children, and we feel helpless to do anything about that.  We can’t usually defend ourselves as children. So we just accept what the person in authority says in order to avoid punishment or get rewards. During childhood, we populated our false self with beliefs, rules, and memories.  We all got stuck in the muddy waters of Step One. Our parents’ voices became recordings in our mind during childhood. We forget to let those voices go when we become independent adults. So we have big bodies but child-like minds. We don’t mature mentally.

Every second-cause belief that we accepted in Step One has an associated emotion. If a belief comes into our mind and we feel emotion, that belief is false. But in Step One, we feel the strong emotion, but we can’t find the causal belief. It feels like the effect is in our body and mind, and the belief is in the authority’s mind. We don’t believe that we can change the authority’s mind. Therefore, we fix effects, wallow in our emotions, soothe ourselves, or think endlessly about our problem. None of those common activities are letting go. None of them improve the quality of our mental container.

When we’re in Step One, we must let go from the feminine. So we lightly put our attention on pain, emotions, or symptoms in our body. We use OUR body to help us find the beliefs to let go in Step One. Then we listen for beliefs to arise. We let go of every belief that arises.

Our job is to notice that every belief we hear while focusing on the discomfort in our body is false and let it go. Now if you were in Step Three, that would be easy and automatic. But you aren’t in Step Three, so you have to drive your mental vehicle manually. The beliefs look true, but you have to recognize that the discomfort in your body is telling you that the beliefs are false.

You might also be in Step One when talking to another. Suddenly, you feel a lot of emotion when they say something. You’re feminine to them, either because they have authority or because you’re listening (listening is receptive or feminine even for a man). The emotion means that you’re accepting whatever they’re saying as true. Today, this is particularly common because people hold beliefs in telepathy, intuition, empathy, sympathy, etc. Those beliefs (or reasons) are all designed to keep us stuck in the illusion. They’re not win-win, which brings us to Step Two.

Step Two

In this step, you might have the masculine role in the physical illusion or not. Either way, you’re thinking from the masculine aspect of your mind, where beliefs and knowledge are stored. We might say that you are in your intellect, or some might say ego. I don’t use that term much.  You might feel like you’re creating your life, but you’re doing it from the false-mental level, not the True Self. In Step Two, your OWN thoughts are creating your emotions. These thoughts are not original; they’re learned from others who declared them to be true. They’re not win-win for all.

As children, we felt emotion when authority figures dominated us. If the emotion got to be too strong, we psychologically reversed our mind to accept the beliefs of that authority as true. We put that person’s voice in our mind as a clone character. Then we started to honor that clone’s voice as our voice, or our false God.

We’re now stuck in that person’s illusion. We no longer feel emotional when that voice speaks. To escape, we need to eliminate that false authority from our mind by letting go of false beliefs. Since we don’t feel emotions, like we do in Step One, we use the win-win test.

When we are stuck in Step Two, we project the opposite belief on to others.  Our thoughts in Step Two might be quite positive or good, but we see an opposite projected on others that’s negative or bad. This destroys our relationships. We’re judging another who we view as somehow inferior to us. We think that they should think or be like us. But they can’t be like us; we’re projecting the opposite on them.

In Step Two, we want others to change. Experts like lawyers, social activists, doctors, healers, teachers, preachers, psychologists, etc., live in Step Two; their careers are about fixing others. If experts used their career to let go of their beliefs from Step Two, they would one day move out of that career into something inspired from their True Self.

In Step Two, we use the win-win test. We can also use the triangle process. Any thought that isn’t win-win is declared false, even if the whole world thinks it’s true. This is hard to do if you have strong false-self connections with others. It’s also hard to do if you think that others are what you project on them. So Step Two can take some practice. It begs us to have some compassion for ourselves and others.

Step Two can feel like a waste of time at first. If you feel that way, then your North Star (where you want to go) isn’t set on freedom. You’re wanting to win and the other lose, wanting to be right, or wanting to dominate or control the other person.  People say, “Why should I let go for them?  They were mean to me.”  We’re letting go of what’s in our mind about them; we’re relieving them of our projection.  But we’re also cleaning out our individual mental container.

Jesus said, “Judge not.” People thought that was because he was spiritual. Nope! Jesus was a very practical man; he understood Step Two. If you’re stuck in judgment, even if it was justified, you can’t get to Step Three.

Often we confuse judgment with discrimination. Discrimination is based on true and false. Let’s say that someone says, “Your ugly.” You feel emotion because that’s false. You let their comment go in Step One. Then you let go of any tendency to judge them back in Step Two.

Many people have gotten a whole lot of freedom just by doing Step Two. I did it with win-win. Lester Levinson and Vernon Howard used only Step Two to gain their freedom. Neither of them had any clue how to let go from the feminine. So don’t ignore Step Two. It’s powerful.

Step Two is about sharpening our discrimination.  Imposing our beliefs on another is a form of judging. Judging blows our chance at freedom.  If we have no clone voices in our mind, we’ll pass through Step Two very quickly.  If we have a big-ass clone, or lots of clone voices in our mind, we’ll be in Step Two for awhile.  We might even get stuck in Step 2.5.

Step 2.5 

This step is a very ineffective way of fixing the effects. In Step 2.5, we’re hearing thoughts, which are soothing; or we hear thoughts that are true for the True Self but not for the false self. Examples are “Everything happens for a reason.” “It will all be okay.” “Time heals.”We are all one.” “Love is all.” “Love is the most powerful force in the universe.” These are basically true statements at the true-mental level.  They feel good when you hear them. But in Step 2.5, we’re saying them because we’re trying to avoid or ignore our emotions.

The New Age, self-help, and progressive movements caused me to add this step.  It became real popular in those groups. I’d often hear the opposite projected at me when people said something that sounded true or was over-the-top caring.  They wanted me to think that they were in their True Self; or they wanted me to think that they had let go, but they hadn’t.  Step 2.5 is actually used by con artists. We trust what we hear and ignore what we feel with such people; then we get blindsided by them.

People pleasers in the illusion think that speaking about the truth is inspiration.  But the word inspiration starts with “IN.”  Real inspiration comes when we expose what’s false in our fellow human beings; exposure pushes the other person inward where they can find their own inspiration. Inspiration is what we find when we get to Step Three.

Step Three 

This Step is a calm, soft feeling. I rarely hear any words at this level. If there are words, it’s more like a thought of how nice it feels. I might get a creative vision or some real inspiration that I want to follow. This is where our problems disappear, and everything seems right again. I might feel the recognition of how much I love another. We feel compassion for others in Step Three, even people who have hurt us.

Unconditional love lives in Step Three. Now we can see that everyone in Step One, Two, and 2.5 have less power than we do.  We have the clear view…the big picture. We aren’t thinking or contemplating. We have a knowing on the topic, not a belief.  We see that the so-called experts on that topic are coming from beliefs, knowledge, or memories. So we just ignore what others think. We’re living fully from our own individual mental container, and we’re now clear on that topic.

Summary

So that’s the Three Steps. Like anything else I offer, it takes practice to get all the way to Step Three. So you do what you can each time you let go. In time, you’ll get there. Like I said above, you want to discover why your mind doesn’t do this naturally. Then let those blocking beliefs go. Such beliefs took you away from your True Self. They pointed you toward the illusion instead of away from it.

Using the Three Steps ultimately eliminates the need for the Three Steps. That’s the nature of any effective technique. It eliminates itself in time. It creates true healing, transformation, and freedom.

Who Am I? I’m A Creator, A Free Thinker…

 Who am I?

By Cathy Eck

 

Who Am I?

This is my last post for a while.  I assure you that everything you need to get mentally and emotionally free is on this site and Gateway to Gold.  But you have to work at it.  You have to want freedom more than you want air to get it.  Reread old posts; what you understand will change as you let go.  You’ll often think that I changed the material, but I probably didn’t.  You changed.  Letting go happens in layers.

Challenge your thoughts/beliefs, even if your mind is telling you with absolute certainty that what you’re experiencing or thinking is true.  Let go of positive beliefs, not just negative ones.  I talk about this in my article on the Triangle Process.  As you let go, you’ll answer life’s biggest question, “Who Am I?”   But don’t confuse what I’m saying with the eastern practice of asking that question over and over again.  My work has nothing to do with eastern teachings and practices.  People often get confused by that.  I didn’t understand this eastern confusion for a long time.  I had to mentor people who had it.  Then I put what I learned from working with them into the Gold Circle material.  They had what I call a True Self clone, and this was keeping them from letting go.  They learned the truth from some teacher or guru, or even studying someone’s writing intensely; and they put the learned truth into their false mind.  That blocked them from connecting with their real True Self.  Then they read and learned what I was saying like that would get them free.  They weren’t actually letting go.  They told themselves that learning was letting go.  It isn’t. You can’t learn your way to your True Self. 

I didn’t have that issue; I had never been a follower.  I didn’t even have much of a persona.  I could never lie very well.  So I didn’t understand what was going on with these people.  But I did want to help them get free; I felt that their desire for freedom was sincere.  I had to go into their illusion to understand why they were so stuck.  That period of research and mentoring others became the Gold Circle.  The clone is the masculine part of our false mind that can pretend to be our True Self.  It learns how to sound like a True Self, but it isn’t the True Self.  Clones confuse a lot of people these days.  Most of those popular spiritual teachers and gurus are very strong clones and that means that they project a lot.  Religious leaders are also clones who project sin on their followers.  Also progressive politicians are very strong clones that project a whole lot on their followers.  Their followers don’t realize what is happening.  It’s cruelty masked as caring.

Thus people who follow them come to believe that they don’t know who they are when they actually do completely know who they are.  They simply took a projection from a so-called spiritual teacher or charismatic leader.  In the Gold Circle, I help people let go of the clone voices that they put in their minds, and they start to realize that they do know who they are.  I can’t stop these clones from doing what they do.  They have the right to do what they want.  But I can tell you how to get free of them; then you return to your True Self.  You don’t need their truth; you had it within you all along.

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.  But you were never supposed to learn beliefs or get a belief system of any kind.

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.  As people get older they identify with their beliefs and their belief systems; they really start to shut down.  That is the start of what I refer to as the clone mind.  But I don’t talk about it much in the free material because it is very confusing.  Explaining the clone, and exposing popular clones, required that I put together a systematic way of approaching the subject.  It requires people to really want to do get free and not just be casual about letting go.  So the Gold Circle was born.

If you don’t have much of a clone, the free work will probably be all you need.  Either way, I require that people do my free work first, so do that and see if you are still stuck when you are done.  You need to already be letting go when you enter the Gold Circle.  I don’t teach the basics of letting go in that program.

That being said, I want to give you one big caution as you read my free work.  You were trained to learn and memorize what you read.  Stop IT!  Don’t learn what I’m saying.  I write to expose what is false.  I teach you how to let go by using your emotions and win-win logic.  Practice what I’m saying, and do it as you read.  Read slowly, and stop when you feel emotions; take the time to let go.  The more you practice, the easier it gets.  It’s a new way of using your mind and emotions.  It goes against what you have been trained to do.  Witness the emotions until you are free of that belief.  If you don’t know what I mean by witnessing, check out https://gatewaytogold.com/meditation-for-the-western-mind/.  Letting go can take minutes or days.  It depends on how much you’ve believed your beliefs in the past.  It depends how feminine you are to others.  It depends on how much you believe the clone voices in your mind.

Letting go is easy; the illusion is very complex.  Those who are winning in the illusion don’t want us to escape.  This project for me has taken a lot longer than I thought it would.  I had no idea that I would run into so many tricks and traps, but I did.  So I had to deal with what came up; and that is why Gateway to Gold has developed into my main site with different paid programs.  However, don’t disregard what I’ve published here.  No Labels No Lies is the meat and potatoes of letting go.  Keep working at it until you completely understand what I’m saying.

 

WTF?

People taught you to see what they saw.  You learned there was danger, suffering, problems, and disease.  You came to believe that 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.  They didn’t know the truth, they knew their beliefs; and they believed that their beliefs were 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.  They gave us reasons for why we were stuck; and those reasons were all lies.

“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!  The east wasn’t any better…they gave you karma and a caste system.

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.  I call them clones.  Clones are great in the illusion; they are worthless once we want freedom.  Creative thinkers sound strange in the illusion.  Philosophers look lazy.  Artists starve.  Inventors can’t afford to create their inventions unless the inventions 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?”

 

Had Enough?

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 you anymore.  Slowly…you started to remember,  “I’m a creator.  What I think is what I become.”  

Your problems came from accepting beliefs and then fixing the effects of those beliefs.  You finally knew which way to go.  You just had to keep letting go more and more until your mind was free.  But it is hard to trust such an insight.  No one is letting go.  Nearly everyone is learning…putting more crap in their mind.

 

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.  So you have nothing to lose by letting go, ever.

 

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.

 

WIN-WIN

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.

 

PROJECTION

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.

Intention: Win-Win (Compassion) or Win-Lose

Compassion

By Cathy Eck

 

Win-Win

As an entrepreneur, I read lots of business books.  When I finished one, I’d go to Barnes & Noble to get another.  One night, I stopped at B&N to get my latest fix.  I noticed a book on the display that said “Win-Win” on the cover.  I didn’t buy the book or even look inside it.  But I loved the sound of those words — win-win.

I bought another book and left the store.  But I couldn’t get win-win out of my mind.  I thought, “I’m going to start living my life that way.  If something isn’t win-win, I won’t do it.”  I didn’t realize that I’d just opened a gateway to compassion…one of the most important keys to initiation.

The next day, during a restroom break at work, I was washing my hands; and I dripped soap on the sink counter.  Those soap droplets caught my attention.  I wondered if just leaving them on the sink was win-win.  After all, we had a maid.  But then the soap would stay there looking messy until the maid came.  I also sensed an attitude of superiority in me as if I was too important to clean.  That didn’t feel win-win.  How could I possibly be more important than the woman who cleaned this restroom?  It really wasn’t win-win to pass the responsibility for my mess on to the maid even if it was technically her job.

Eventually, I pulled down some paper towel and cleaned up my mess.  But I hadn’t just cleaned the counter.  I’d also cleaned something in my mind.  I realized that when I reached that win-win place of thinking over this stupid little thing, I felt a deep calmness that I’d not felt since childhood.  It was way beyond anything I’d felt with meditation.  Meditating quieted my mind; but I was letting go of my shallow false masculine perspective, which freed my mind.

Back at my desk, I picked up a sales contract.  Suddenly it didn’t look win-win.  I called the potential customer and offered to make changes in his favor.  I wasn’t playing games anymore; I treated him the way I would want to be treated.  Again, I felt that peace.

This experiment started with a physical focus — doing that which was win-win.  But it shifted into something much bigger — letting go of any thought that wasn’t win-win.  That, I’d learn, is the meaning of compassion.  Compassion is what tames the false masculine.

 

Intention

About ten years later, people started to write books on the power of intention.  But there was no compassion in their intention setting.  They were thinking an intention before they did something like “Send me that which is for the highest good.”  It sounded nice, but they were washing their hands of responsibility — letting the universe decide what’s good for them.  Unfortunately, the universe doesn’t act as our fair and just concierge; we get what we believe.  This allowed the person to look compassionate without being compassionate.  Compassion doesn’t happen until we let go of beliefs.  It purifies our mind when we let go of the false masculine’s judgmental win-lose, good-evil, or right-wrong thoughts.

Others set intentions like, “I intend to win this race,”  or “I intend to lose twenty pounds this month.”  They were willing the future into submission for their benefit — another talent of the false masculine.

My intention to live from win-win caused me to go deep into my mind and to question my own thinking.  I was letting go before I even understood letting go.  To really get to win-win on any subject, I had to consider everyone that might be affected by the situation — the true application of the Golden Rule.  Letting go of the false masculine beliefs and judgments transformed my false physically-oriented perspective into the true, pure mental perspective of life.  Of course, when my mind was right, top of the triangle with no opposite thoughts, my behavior followed.  I couldn’t imagine harming another.

 

Compassion

Later, I decided to do my Ph.D. Dissertation on the initiation story of Jesus, and I used this same technique.  Unlike Christians, I didn’t want to copy Jesus’ actions; I wanted to understand, and find in myself, the mind of Jesus.  I’d take a Bible quote that didn’t make sense such as, “The meek shall inherit the earth.”  I started with the win-lose interpretations that I’d been taught:  “You have to be submissive to get to heaven.  You get rewarded for giving others what they want.”  None of the thoughts that popped into my mind felt win-win.  They didn’t produce that calmness or compassion.  So I kept dropping every belief that arose and kept digging for the truth.  You see, the truth wasn’t in some guru or in the ethers for channels to pick up; it was in my mind resting quietly below all of my false knowledge.

After letting go of many thoughts about this quote, I dropped into that now familiar place of win-win.  Jesus was talking about the mental, not the physical.  He was already in that compassionate place when he spoke.  When we let go of our beliefs and knowledge, our mind becomes meek, quiet, and pure.  We can’t imagine fighting or willing in order to get what we want.  And yet, our meek mind is extraordinarily powerful because our mind is so clear and creative.  We easily get whatever we focus our mind on — we inherit the earth.

I repeated this process for thousands of hours until I decoded the path of initiation from the story of Jesus.  He was a compassionate dude; and it wasn’t because of what he did but because of how he thought.  Then I saw it everywhere — initiation was embedded in many ancient myths and legends.  You can’t see it until you get the right perspective.  Real freedom, real peace, and real power are revealed when we exercise compassion and let go until our thinking becomes completely win-win for everyone.  That’s how we bring heaven back to earth.

Roles: When the Feminine Pretends to be Masculine

Masculine or Feminine

By Cathy Eck

 

Confusion of Roles

Roles become very confusing when they’re not played as designed.  I’ve written about the masculine who pretends to be feminine — an authority figure who projects out an enemy, like Bush/Obama projecting Osama Bin Laden and Muslim extremism.  The leader pretends to be a victim of their own evil projection.  They want support/service/sacrifice from followers in order to slay the evil dragon.  If the followers succeed, the leader becomes a hero.  It’s a very old archetype.

This leader needs blindly obedient followers to slay his dragon.  We see such a person in the movie, “American Sniper,”  the true story of Chris Kyle, known as “The Legend” for his large number of kills.  Controversy has erupted over whether Chris Kyle was a hero or a predator.   Both labels are right in the illusion; both put Kyle at the bottom of the triangle.  If there’s a real enemy, then he’s a hero.  If there’s no enemy, then he’s a predator in the illusion.

Soldier is a strange role.  We believe a soldier is highly masculine.  Just try not to think of masculinity while watching Bradley Cooper play Chris Kyle.  It’s difficult!  However, soldier is actually a feminine role; soldiers salute, take orders, and blindly obey authority.  They’re feminine to the higher rank (who are feminine to their superior).  Soldiers only become masculine when they kill.  As observers, we get tricked by this role shift because we’re trained to look with physically-oriented eyes.

 

Roles Clarified

The original definition of roles made sense.  The masculine role followed the ideal of the sun and unconditionally gave.  The feminine role unconditionally received (like the moon or earth).  A person in a true masculine role would only think or speak the truth.  Their feminine side would be calm and receive original, creative ideas.

But a false masculine projects an illusion based on beliefs, which creates a fantasy, horror, or drama.  Those who are feminine followers to the false masculine leader, and honor their belief system, are no longer creating their OWN life.  Consequently, they’re either highly emotional or highly suppressed.  Only the person at the top of the pyramid — the supreme handler — has the script.  For most people, that supreme leader/handler is the false God — the imaginary leader of the illusion.  His constitution is the Old Testament.

 

Feminine Pretends to be Masculine

Remember, the false leader is an authority holding a masculine role but pretending to be feminine, a victim of someone or something outer.  This false leader pretends to be innocent; but that’s because we’re trained to ignore the fact that they projected their OWN enemy.

Any follower of a false masculine is playing a feminine role.  Look closely at Chris Kyle.  If you take out his back story, he appears to be a macho man — an expert marksman —  a killer of evil extraordinaire  — a hero.  But the movie, “American Sniper,” doesn’t ignore the back story.  He’s not masculine at all.  He’s feminine pretending to be masculine.  

Kyle’s story starts at birth, not at enlistment.  His dad rewarded him for his shooting skills as a young child.  He wanted dad’s approval and ignored his strong emotional signal screaming that killing wasn’t right.   He lived in Texas and attended a Fundamentalist church.  He quickly became feminine to his dad and religious authorities.  His dad tells him that he’s a protector, like a sheep dog; he buys the label because it sounds good.  By the time 9/11 occurred, he was one angry dude with a feminine, obedient mind.  From the physical perspective, he was masculine.  But from the mental perspective, he was completely feminine.

We fall into this quicksand because we confuse the physical and mental perspectives.  The True Self lives in the mental realm; the false self is physically focused.  From the mental, True Self perspective, we are NEVER an authority over another.  We can lead others for a common purpose, but we can’t be their ultimate authority.

Anyone who believes in the false God, is an expert of knowledge, or teaches information that has been pre-chewed by those in the illusion has a feminine mind.  Their position of authority doesn’t change their mindset.  They aren’t harmful unless we make them our authority.  I might take a class in Photoshop from a Photoshop expert to become a better user.  I’m glad s/he exists because the knowledge is useful; but I don’t let him/her tell me what to do with Photoshop.

Many people notice that the highest leaders appear to be feminine to some hidden hand, which is called God by some and the illuminati or big business by others.  If we could dissect the authority’s mind, however, I think we’d find that they’re actually following mom and dad’s illusion most of the time.

 

Level Confusion in Roles

When we follow any other human, we enter their fallen perspective because only our false self is outer directed.  A true leader will always point us back inside.  They won’t take our power even if we insist on giving it to them.

The calm demeanor of false leaders is often mistaken for the calmness of the True Self.  But false calmness is actually the result of the leader’s ability to project emotions on to followers.  We see the leader’s true colors when we refuse to serve their cause or fight their enemy.  The false masculine leader blames, guilts, and shames until we accept their beliefs and do their dirty work.  The say they’ll lead us to the promised land, but they actually spin us around in the desert forever.

To unravel this mess, we must clean up our own mind.  We have both of these false masculine characters within our false mind resting at the bottom of the triangle; often they’ve brought us rewards.  Sometimes, we fear the responsibility of leading our OWN life.  We fear making mistakes or not having answers.  But the only authority that is fair, harmless, and doesn’t err is our own True Self.  No one else can offer us better advice.

 

 

 

Living the Masculine and Feminine Roles in Relationships

Earth as a mirror of our mind

By Cathy Eck

 

Getting Right Inside

I usually discuss the masculine and feminine related to roles; but the masculine and feminine are actually aspects of our own mind.  The correct inner relationship manifests correct outer relationships.  However, most people live as if the outer world and relationships create their thoughts.  They live life backwards.

In order to let go, we must move our attention inside of our mind.  We must take our focus off the belief-generated illusion and other people; we become inner directed.  Don’t confuse this with introversion.  Inner directed means our attention is on our OWN mind, not other people’s minds.  It means constant discrimination.

Whether we’re male or female, we came hard-wired with a masculine and feminine mind aspect — once called God and Goddess within  (True Self).  Living as a True Self is only possible when we let go of everything false from our minds.  We’re left with only true.  We now create in the physical world using only first-cause thinking.

When we’re thinking true thoughts, our inner masculine and inner feminine harmonize as one.  Our mind is unified (top of the triangle).  These are our most creative moments.  Our inner God now loves unconditionally and thinks only the truth or first-cause thoughts; hence our inner Goddess is creative and wise.  Our life works.

 

Inner Relationships Create Outer Relationships

Jesus said (paraphrasing), “Don’t do shit until you find the kingdom of heaven within.”  That was damn good advice.  If our inner masculine mind is a giant mass of beliefs and knowledge, our inner feminine mind will be emotional and non-creative.  What’s inside our mind creates what’s outside of us if we hold a masculine role.  When we don’t hold a masculine role, then we’re lowly cast members in the stories of the people who hold the masculine roles.

The true masculine leader was modeled after the sun.  The sun gives light and warmth unconditionally.  It doesn’t check to see if we’re worthy of it’s gift or ask for something in return.  Likewise, the masculine sexual organ gives.  Thus the masculine role was considered a giving/assertive role.

The feminine role was modeled after the moon or earth to reflect or absorb.  The sun, moon, and earth were metaphors for the mentally oriented masculine and feminine.  We assume that the sun sends pure light; but humans in the false masculine role send fluorescent (fake) light.

If the masculine mind or leader is like the sun (true) and loves the feminine unconditionally, the feminine reflects that unconditional love back like the full moon, or the feminine earth absorbs the sun’s rays and creates life.  However, if the false masculine mind or leader projects judgment, criticism, or discipline on the feminine, the feminine reacts unnaturally with emotion, rebellion, problems, or disease.

The True Masculine lets go of any thought that causes emotion or limits the feminine (not win-win).  But the false masculine doesn’t let go.  It thinks its beliefs are right and true.  It projects the unwanted part of it’s divided (second-cause) thinking on to its feminine using blame.  It believes that it can think false and get true.  That’s ridiculous, but that’s what it believes; it calls it discipline.

If we all lived as True Selves, creating would be cooperative with two or more whole people creating more than the sum of the equal parts.  A common goal or desire would unite people — not their beliefs.  The leader would hold the vision for the group — not impose beliefs or rules on them.

 

Reality of Relationships

The True masculine role is mentally oriented; its pure mind never gets tired of giving.  What effort does it take to think truth or love unconditionally?

The false masculine, however, is physically oriented; a false masculine mind says to physically give, sacrifice, or serve.  The false masculine leader (or God/Lord) gives discipline, rules, and beliefs.  It gives conditional love (rewards) and punishment.

Thinking false thoughts is exhausting.  But the false masculine is cunning.  It makes the rules and convinces others to do it’s hard work with lies while it receives the benefits, power, and credit.  Rules are false; they shouldn’t be obeyed.  But we’ve been psychologically reversed to obey.

A powerful false masculine leader (like royalty or a billionaire) feels balanced.  But, they’re not.  They’re living the beneficial side of both roles.  They have no compassion for their projection — the people living the shitty side of both roles who have no power and no rewards.  Thus the successful false masculine leader often does a little charity work or service to mask their projection and look generous.

False masculine leaders have no reason to change their mind, so we have to transform ours.  When we let go of their beliefs/rules in our mind even if they’ve created our reality in the past, we move into the True Masculine role naturally.  The true leader is the person with the purist mind in any situation.  They have more power than the balanced false masculine; they can make everything right.

In initiation, we don’t fight for the masculine role or win it by education, expertise, or knowledge.  We simply let go of all of our beliefs.  We let go of allowing others to project or impose their beliefs on us.  We let go of our judgments of others.  Our mind becomes clear and pure.  Then we rise naturally to the true masculine role.  It’s so subtle that we hardly even know we’ve done it.

In initiation, this was called becoming the Christ or the Son of God.  In religion, it’s called impossible.  Religion worships the false masculine; the false masculine always has an enemy or opposite like Satan.  The higher the false masculine rises in the system, the more it’s attacked by Satan.  However, when the True Masculine takes the lead, the false masculine loses its false power; it retreats or submits because it’s finally feeling its own emotions.  It’s pulled inward.  Its lies no longer work.  The war is over.

How Roles Can Screw Us Up, and How to Escape Them

Think Different

By Cathy Eck

 

Roles 101

I really enjoyed my ex-husband’s father.  When everyone went off to church on Saturday night or Sunday morning, we would turn off the television, drink an icy cold Iron City, and laugh at our stupid stories.  He was alive, smart, and so much fun.  He was healthy and vibrant.  But the minute the door opened and the family returned, he was an actor who had been signaled to get his ass on stage.  He became a sick, old man who never amounted to anything.  His shoulders dropped.  His back hurt.  His smile turned into a frown, and he would quickly turn on the television.  He had a long-standing role in that family; there was nothing I could do to stop him from playing it or to convince my husband that I knew a different man than he did.

After enough time, I too would fall into a similar dreadful role that I couldn’t escape.  But I was like Andy in “The Shawshank Redemption.”  I was willing to chip away a little each day until I found my way back to freedom.  I learned about roles, and how deadly they can be, from observing my husband’s family.  I’d guess that the leading cause of death is giving up because you can’t escape an unwanted role.

We might have a good white-sheep role like the cute one, funny one, or smart one.  Or we could be a black sheep role like the sick one, negative one, or loser.  Roles are constructed with labels; once people associate us with a particular label, they’re often very slow to let that label go.  They don’t notice when we change; and we often feel like we’re stuck in Shawshank prison with little hope for parole.

 

Projection

Here’s where things get dicey.  People assign roles when they project the unwanted half of their beliefs out through their physical eyes (the bad side of the bottom of the triangle).  We can’t see them do this so we get tricked.  In the illusion, people (in masculine roles) see their own reflection without knowing it.  The masculine projects; the feminine reflects.

They call you the perky one because that’s how they see you, not how you really are.  Suddenly, you’re more perky in their presence; you might like that they bring out that quality in you.  But if they call you lazy or rude because you don’t talk around them (since they bore the living shit out of you),  you’ll find yourself unable to be perky even if you normally are.  Even worse, with a “bad” label, they’ll try to fix you, cementing the label more deeply.

In my experience, the best escape route is to let go from the feminine role until we get into the masculine role.  What we do next is critical.  Most screw up right here.  Once in the masculine role, we must let go of anything we see outside of us that generates emotion until the whole world appears free.  We can’t get free while holding people hostage in roles with our beliefs.

Getting rid of the need for approval is key to getting free of labels.  We must stop measuring our success based upon what others think of us and start measuring our success by the purity of our OWN mind.   Likewise, we stop measuring other people by what they say or do and start measuring them by the quality of their thinking.

For example, we say that people who inspire and motivate others are good people.  But why are they inspiring and motivating?  They see an uninspired and unmotivated world.  They’re fixing their own projection.  When we move into the masculine role, we see our beliefs about others, people, animals, plants, and the world.   It is our job to let go of what we see until we see free choice, true versus false, and a divine sort of justice.  Most people fix their projections and call it a career.

 

No Roles

The mental perspective is the cure for everything wrong in the world.  From a physically-oriented perspective, medical doctors are helpful; mentally oriented, they’re cursing patients with labels called diagnoses. They focus on sickness, not health.  In a physical orientation, veterans are heroes; mentally oriented, they’re blindly obedient killers.  Physically oriented, caretakers are servants to the needy; mentally oriented, they’re enablers or prison guards.  If we cling to a physically-oriented role, we can’t get free.  It’s impossible!

If you feel like you don’t fit into the world, you probably are more comfortable with the mental perspective.  You might feel judgment from others because people with physically oriented perspectives fit in; they think they’re good and right.  They have a free pass to be completely irresponsible with their mind.  You may have tried to avoid the physically-oriented world, but that isn’t necessary.  I assure you that the illusion won’t affect you once you let go of your beliefs and let your free mind lead your physical body and experience.

Roles disappear once we adopt the mental perspective.  Those who were perceived as good become false; and those who were labeled bad or wrong are revealed to be reflections of false good roles.  It becomes clear that the normal view of life is illusory; whatever was wrong in the illusion will be false in the free world.

When this mental shift happens, shit no longer happens.  A different world is revealed; it was hidden below our beliefs all along.  Roles, authority, and the illusion lose their false power.  We have nothing to fear anymore.  It was all just the boogie man under the bed; he wasn’t real.  The illusion takes over our imagination so we lose our creativity; when we let go of the illusion, our creativity returns.

Fortunately, we don’t have to wait for others to live from this perspective.  It’s there when we let go of our OWN physically-oriented perspective.  It’s there when we live entirely from the mental, True Self, perspective — the world of mental cause producing physical effect.

Redefining Success the True Self Way

Judgment Day

By Cathy Eck

 

Success and Heaven on Earth

My definition of success changed the day I first saw the above image.  It’s the Egyptian Weighing of the Heart Ceremony.  The deceased must have a heart as light as a feather, or they cannot gain entrance to heaven.  This wasn’t the judgment day scene I’d been taught; it was the best guidance for living life I’d ever encountered.  It was the truth.  It’s still my favorite image, and I intend to share everything I learned from it in a book.  So I’ll just leave it at that for now.

On that sweet day, years of unsuccessful research suddenly fell into place like a puzzle magically assembling itself.  I realized that the false self has a physical focus and hears the judgment day message as something which occurs ONLY at death; the True Self has a mental focus, and views the message as a guide for life.  If our True Self leads, our life becomes orderly.  Problems and suffering disappear.

 

Success as a Currency

Success is defined by society based on false physical/material standards.  Famous or wealthy people are successful.  A big house or nice car renders us successful.  Certain labels mean success.  Our body matching popular standards means success.

Just like the amount of money in our bank account defines our financial worth, our measure of success becomes our personal worth.  False selves honor the material definitions that give them the greatest worth in the illusion.  So, we spin around, chasing false material desires, to potentially be labeled worthy.  When we fulfill those false desires, we still don’t feel worthy because we haven’t gotten our mind right.  The physical is the effect of the mental, not the other way around.

There are also intangible currencies like being nice, doing good deeds, saying socially acceptable words, serving our country, or fitting in.  These are based on achieving a proper physical appearance.  We’re want others to judge us as successful, good, or right.  If we’re honest, our judging God is actually a complex of our human authority figures’ belief systems.  We become imprisoned by their success currency; we either submit to the definitions or rebel against them.  Submission and rebellion become our dreaded bottom of the triangle.

 

Success Defined Correctly 

The correct definition of success is mentally oriented.  We want our mind to measure up to our perfect inner standards.  Then whatever we express will be perfect.  We become the masters of our life, and only our life.

After staring at the above image for hours, I wrote down my OWN definition of success:    If anyone could cut my mind open, they would find nothing but unconditional love and truth.  It’s not very complex.  I never made it my brand.  Recently, I realized that I needed to share this; I saw people I mentor getting stuck on this very point.  Defining success in this way turned my life upside down; I had to remember unconditional love and truth as they were before I dove into the illusion.

People think unconditional love is caretaking, sympathy, tolerance, sex, making someone feel good, being kind and submissive, fighting for your country, believing mom and dad’s harmful advice, and not saying fuck.  Those are all examples of conditional love.  Unconditional love exposed and dissolved every false crack and crevice in my mind.  But now, I could no longer sympathize, enable someone’s beliefs, or have national, cultural, or social pride because I would be contributing to the illusion.  Unconditional love turns our world upside down.  Unconditional love and truth (along with all other True Self qualities) were powers that were hijacked by the false self and redefined.  Supporting anyone’s false self was hate, not love.

Creating this mental definition of success was infinitely more demanding than creating material goals.  It required disabling my will and letting go of everything I believed.  It demanded that I honor my emotions completely.  It also made others, who still had a physically oriented perspective, uncomfortable.  They couldn’t project their emotions on me anymore, and I didn’t look up to them.  It takes lots of practice to live this way.  But it’s worth it.

You might think, “Cathy, where’s freedom?”  You always talk about freedom.  Returning the powers of love and truth to the True Self allows for freedom.  My definition guides everything I do.  It’s my North Star.  The unconditional love gives me courage to speak up.  Truth allows me to honor my emotions and know what’s false.

 

Your Turn

How do you want your mind to be?  Do you want it filled with creative ideas or bursting with beauty?  Do you want it to sprout fun ideas for inventions?  Do you want a quiet, peaceful, and free mind?   What makes you, YOU?  Living from YOUR definition of mental success is the only way to be free and eternally joyful in the physical world.

Next, you must let go of all physical definitions of success that you’ve believed.  They’re ALL bullshit.  Suddenly, those supermodels you admired look artificial.  The billionaires look like crooks.  The muscle men look deformed.  Competitive athletes look barbaric.  Gurus look like big egos, the very thing they claim not to have (LOL).  You’ll take back your own True Self.  We actually project our True Self on false selves who fit society’s definition of success when we look up to them and believe them.  They look good only because we see our OWN True Self in them.  Take away that false halo, and they’re impostors.  Projecting our True Self is just as handicapping as projecting the unloveable parts of our false self.

The big secret is that there’s no outer judge on a cloud who decides if we go to heaven or hell when (or I prefer if) we die.  The judge is inside of us; it’s weighing our heart each moment against our own True Self’s measure of success.  We decide if we spend today in heaven or hell.  That’s freedom.

Letting Go Isn’t Therapy or Self-Help

Phoenix Rising out of ashes

By Cathy Eck

 

Letting go is natural.  But we’ve been trained to use our minds in a very unnatural way to keep the illusion alive.  It all began with the all-pervasive psychological reversal, the belief that a thought is true if it generates emotions.  It caused us to believe in emotionally heavy problems, injustice, war, suffering, and disease.  Once we believe these things exist, we see them.  Without that psychological reversal, all unwanted things would disappear.  Instead of healing the psychological reversal, we try to prevent our fears from manifesting, try to make peace with what we’ve already manifested, and try to release all the emotions we’ve generated.

 

Therapy and Self-Help

In therapy, people talk about their problems.  They go back to their past to understand what happened or to discover why they feel like they do.  They justify their emotions or train themselves to no longer feel them.  Therapy rarely invokes letting go.

During my early research days, I often turned on the Dr. Phil show in the afternoons for a break.  I thought it would support my efforts.  It didn’t.  It created unrelenting emotions within me.  Dr. Phil projects his moral, religious viewpoint into the world — right and wrong, good and evil.  He fixes his massive projections on the show.  He sees a reward-and-punishment world.  He believes the past creates the future.  As I moved toward my True Self, my body signaled the error in his divided point of view.  I came to realize that Dr. Phil only felt emotion when he was bad according to the Christian definition of good and bad; I felt emotion around both sides of the bottom of the triangle.

In self-help, people put ice-cream on their manure.  They get their anger out, or they make peace with their shadow.  If you let go, you no longer have anger or a shadow.  You don’t need the ice cream.  In self-help, people try to drop their ego, but they don’t even know what their ego is.  Most are trying to drop their True Self.  Trying to fix ourselves hasn’t worked because we aren’t broken.

I can explain anything that happened to anyone in five words:  “THEY FELL INTO THE ILLUSION.”  Nothing can happen to any of us without first accepting an illusory belief or putting a false self above us as our authority.

Therapy and self-help rarely find the causal belief because they’re focused on causal incidents.  They falsely assume that our emotions come from actions, events, and trauma.  They don’t realize that our emotions come from our own beliefs or believing another’s thoughts; we start accepting beliefs in our mother’s womb.  It looks like we’re born with original sin.  We might get the fallen illusory viewpoint early in life, but it isn’t who we truly are.  I suspect that’s why babies come out screaming.

When we’re truly free of a past belief, we recognize how we perpetuated it.  Every time the belief entered our conscious mind, we felt emotion.  We believed that the nervous agitation meant the thought/belief was true.  So we ran from it.  We didn’t turn and face it and say, “You are not true.”  Humans might face fears on the outside by doing dangerous activities or telling their wife they had an affair; but they rarely face their fears on the inside where it truly matters.

Therapy creates comfort in the illusion.  When the illusion’s drama gets too hot, therapy cools things down.  Self-help helps us win.  When we feel defeated, self-help beefs up our will.  Occasionally, therapy or self-help cause someone to let go; but it’s usually an accident.

 

Drama

To create drama, we think false thoughts.  When those thoughts manifest, we blame others.  We avoid responsibility for our minds and creations.  We keep our focus outward.  We even expect others to fix our emotions.

Mom feels lonely; she wants us to visit.  She thinks she has no purpose; she’s not loved.  She’s memorializing the past.  She’s repeatedly thinking false thoughts that generate emotion.  If she let them go, she wouldn’t need us to fix them.  The people in our life don’t realize that their emotions are caused by their own thinking.  When we let go, we find out how codependent we really were.  We find out why we weren’t living our life.

 

The Dreaded Plateau

Therapy and self-help are attractive because they don’t discriminate between true and false.  People often plateau in initiation because they want to keep someone else on the hook, they don’t want to let go of their projections, or there’s a part of the illusion they like.  They want the criminal punished.  They’re sure their child is lazy.  They don’t want to let go of competition because they think it makes sports fun.  They love Christmas and look forward to the excitement of the holidays.  They want the money their traditional medicine career provides.  They love going to self-help workshops.  They fear losing their hot boyfriend.  All of their friends are Christian.  Therapy and self-help don’t put such things at risk, but letting go does.  Or so we think…

We don’t have to give up anything outer by letting go.  We’re just letting go of false perspectives.  We stop wanting justice for illusory errors.  We drop competing, not sports.  We buy gifts and decorate our house with lights anytime.  We become a healer who drops labels instead of creating them.  We go to creative workshops instead of self-help.  We realize that if hot boyfriend doesn’t like our True Self, he’s wrong for us.  We see goodness in all people, not just our fellow church members.

Our false mind says that we’ll lose something we think we need or love by letting go, but it’s lying.  We can’t screw up by letting go.  We can’t lose.  Losing things that weren’t right for us is winning.  If something is truly ours, we can’t lose it.  And in my experience, if it wasn’t really mine, I didn’t miss it — not even a little.  Freedom was infinitely better.

Rebellion and Denial aren’t Letting Go

Rebellion and Denial

By Cathy Eck

 

Are We Really Letting Go?

Taking action to fix a situation is fixing the effect of our beliefs, not letting go.  We’re often so used to fixing effects that we don’t even think to let go first.  Now that being said, we will probably continue to take actions to fix some effects for awhile.  Some problems have so much power that we have to gain proficiency in letting go and trusting our emotions before we don’t need to take any action at all.  Nevertheless, it’s important that we recognize if we’re fixing effects.  In this way, we can still let go after the fact and continue moving toward freedom.

For most of us, there are obvious problems that we know we must let go.  They’re in our face; and we can see that we need to let go of our beliefs around these issues.  Then there are problems or beliefs that we deny or rebel against.

We usually deny beliefs because we’ve become so proficient at fixing them with action or compensating beliefs that we forget we’re fixing effects.  We’re sure we no longer believe the things that we’re still fixing.  But if we stop fixing the effect for some reason, we’ll be reminded of that belief.  Let’s say we believe in evil, but we believe our religion will keep us safe from it.  Then we leave that religion, and we fear evil again.  In denial, we pretend a belief that we clearly hold as true doesn’t exist in our mind.  Denial facilitates projection.  When we deny beliefs, we see them in others but not in ourselves.  We often judge those who act out our beliefs.

In rebellion, it feels as if the belief is coming at us from others.  We have beliefs in our mind that say we must believe what some other person believes.  We can’t see that we hold the causal belief that allows this person into our mind.  Usually they’re an authority in our life.  We often think we can’t let go of their belief, so we do the opposite.

 

Rebellion

Many people think they are no longer rebelling when their opponent has stopped fighting.  The non-action appears to indicate resolution.  But we’re stuck on one side of the bottom of the triangle mentally with our opponent silently holding the opposite.  Justifying our position or saying we won can look a lot like freedom, but it isn’t.

Let’s say that our mother wants us to go to college.  We don’t go; in time, our mother doesn’t bring up the topic anymore.  It’s easy to think that we’ve resolved this issue.  But we haven’t.  College becomes the elephant in the room.  Our mother is always looking for a reason to point out what she perceives as our error.

Fortunately, if one lets go of the bottom of the triangle, the other must.  We dissolve the false self connection.  We must look at why we believe our mother’s beliefs or judgments of us.  If we see her beliefs or judgments as false, they will lose all power.  We’ll know without a doubt that our True Self guided us perfectly.

The best way that we can prove the rightness of our True Self is to let go of whatever others throw at us.  We must know that what they throw our way isn’t true for us.  People will do this until we can’t be rattled anymore.  Then they stop.  The elephant leaves the room.

 

Denial

Denial is a coping mechanism of our false self.  We’re living in a situation that we hate, but we tell ourselves it’s the way life is or we need to accept what is.  We need this job.  We’ll be lonely if we leave the marriage.  We might say we’re good for putting up with something that isn’t acceptable to us.  We might believe we don’t deserve more.  Often denial is masked in words of forgiveness or in trying to sound nice.  Denial is often a sign that we’ve become good at losing.

I was taught that being a good loser was virtuous.  I was told to considered losing part of life…you win some and you lose some.  But then I realized that win-lose wasn’t normal or true.  I had to let go of all my goodisms that made other people’s winning at my expense right — sayings like “accept what is” or “they did the best that they could” weren’t true.  We weren’t designed to accept intolerable situations, judgment from others, or living in small boxes.  We aren’t doing the best we can if we are living from beliefs.

The key to my relief was in recognizing that my True Self sorted the world based on true and false.  I wasn’t making someone bad or wrong by not believing them.  I was just choosing my own freedom; they could choose what they wanted for themselves.  Realizing that beliefs are false regardless of who imposes them on us is what frees us.

 

Ultimately, our life belongs to us.  It’s our journey, and we were meant to live from our True Self.  When we rebel against a belief that another possesses and tries to impose on us, or we deny that we have a belief, we remain stuck in the illusion and chained to others.  We stay stuck where we don’t belong.  We make actions right that have been fueled by false thinking.  We fight with others when there is really nothing to fight about.

As we get rid of rebellion and denial, we become more comfortable living our life.  We aren’t bothered by other people’s beliefs because we know that one can only harm themselves with their beliefs.  They can no longer project into our life and body.  Their beliefs do not impact us even if they think they should.  This is where real power begins to erupt within us.  We start to truly live as creators of our own life.

 

Problems: The Gift that Keeps on Taking in the Illusion

It's not what we do, it's why we do it.

By Cathy Eck

 

Problems?

My dad was an engineer.  He loved to take things apart and put them back together.  He loved fixing things.  When we would break something, he was thrilled.  He got a chance to fix something.  He often said, “There isn’t anything that can’t be fixed.”  I loved those words, but I didn’t like problems.  In fact, I hated them.

While he was clearly talking about the material world and stuff, I heard his words on a completely different level.  His words fueled my quest to fix my mind and my body, even when others said it wasn’t possible.  His words provided a valuable reminder as I took my own mind apart that it could be fixed.  I thought I’d have to put my mind back together once I got all the pieces spread all over the floor.  But most of the pieces were unnecessary.  They weren’t keeping my body running or making my life better. They were just causing problems.  These unnecessary mental components weren’t true or necessary for joyful expression; they were simply someone else’s worthless beliefs that were like parasites.  They sucked the life out of me while giving nothing in return.

My dad was passionate about fixing things; he used his passion to help us out when needed.  But, he didn’t break things just to fix them.  If he couldn’t find anything to fix, he used his talents creatively by finding things to build.  He enjoyed the bottom of the triangle illusory state of fixing and breaking if the opportunity arose to play there, but he used it in a way that didn’t harm others.  He showed me that the illusion can be a sort of playground if we don’t take it seriously or force it on others.

 

Fixing and Breaking

The bottom of the triangle isn’t bad if used in a win-win way (directed by the True Self).  Old buildings must be destroyed before a new one can be erected.  Likewise, we destroy our false mind so we can rebuild it.  If we know the difference between True and false and creating from First (win-win) and Second (win-lose, good-evil) Cause, we can live outside the suffering that most people consider normal.  We avoid creating problems, and we can help others leave their problems behind if they ask for help.

As long as people break things, we’ll need people who fix them.  Nevertheless, we must understand how to use our talents properly on the way out of the illusion.  On the way into the illusion, we project our beliefs on to others and then fix the effect of our projection in the others.  We retain unwanted beliefs, often for financial gain.

I first noticed the power of win-win when I worked in technology. Someone would call me for tech support, and I’d just talk with them.  Often I had no clue what their problem was, and I sure as hell didn’t know the answer.  But they did.  If I talked in the correct general direction, they solved the problem themselves.  My clients were all becoming computer experts. They became confident that they could fix their own problems.  That made my job really easy.  I could focus on creating new ideas and products instead of fixing other people’s problems.  We were both happier.

This only works if we can see our creative potential, and if we don’t believe that we need customers for life.  I think dentistry is the worst example of second-cause creation.  They tell their patients to come in every six months so they can look for the problems that they expect to find so they can fill, drill, and bill.  I recently read a study that said people with the best teeth often don’t go to the dentist much.  Made sense to me.

Dentists, and other service people, don’t have to walk away from their professions; there’s a proper transition toward freedom.  First, they become a dentist that expects to find perfect teeth.  They do that by letting go of their knowledge and labels for problems; they recognize that problems come from beliefs and many of those beliefs are perpetuated by them.  In accounting, they’d call their expensive dental schooling a sunk cost.  It has no future value so you just write it off and move on.  They slowly wean their clients off of them and follow their creative inspiration to a better life.

 

The Lesson

With my dad, we were willing supporters in something that brought him fun.  Fixing stuff is clearly part of the illusion, but it was a fun, first-cause part of the illusion for him.  We didn’t need to break things to please him.  Often he involved us in the fixing process, contributing to our self-sufficiency and confidence that “Anything could be fixed if it happened to break.”   His knowledge wasn’t bad because it was directed by his True Self.  He still fixes things in his community for a cookie or beer, but only if asked to do so.

The dentist (and most fixers) make knowledge (expertise) more powerful than wisdom (truth).  He or she projects problems by believing that they’re true.  When I was little, I screamed when taken to the dentist.  I noticed they often had ugly or highly repaired teeth.  I felt their convoluted energy as they projected their flawed point of view on me.  Their beliefs got them bad teeth, and now they wanted me to have them too.  That’s second-cause creation; it’s how we perpetuate the illusion.

As we move through the path of initiation, we’re letting go of second-cause creations, beliefs, and memories.  They weren’t necessary parts of our mind or our life so we won’t miss them.  They were problems that only existed in the illusion — they appeared real but weren’t true.  After we trash these unwanted and unneeded components of our mind, we see that they created unnecessary detours and problems in our life.  We won’t ever make that mistake again.

Win-Win and Our Bodies

An apple a day

By Cathy Eck

Lose-Lose

People often write to me asking for help with physical problems.  My body has been a huge challenge for me, mostly because the illusion is filled with beliefs about our bodies; and people in my life had rigid body beliefs and enormous trust in experts.  I, on the other hand, found the things that people do to fix their bodies repulsive.  I’ve had a lot to let go, and I’m not done.  But I do know where I’m going.  Here’s what I’ve learned.

The illusion is physically or effect oriented.  We see something wrong in our bodies, and we go to an expert.  We trust whatever they diagnose.  We put their knowledge in our mind and hope it fixes our problem.  We ignore the fact that experts see what they believe — projection.

We ignore our True Self’s wisdom and our own emotional discrimination that’s probably screaming at us.  We’ve given false masters dominion over our body in so many ways, usually out of fear.  Until we confront our fears, they lie under the surface waiting to trap us one day.  We’re playing the health lottery; and the odds of winning are decreasing every day.

Fixing the effects of our false thinking causes slow mental degradation.  We dive even deeper in the illusion every time we fix effects.  We’ve given our money and power to someone else; we’ve put them in a false masculine role over us without realizing it.  We’ll need them again because the cause isn’t really gone.  Eventually, we’ll encounter a problem that no expert can solve.  If we have no awareness of our True Self, that problem will kill us or severely deteriorate our quality of life.  It’s insane that we call that normal.

When the illusion wins, we ALL lose because everyone has fueled beliefs.  It gets harder for anyone to break free.  It’s imperative that we stop feeding the illusion.

Now don’t get me wrong.  I’m not saying to go cold turkey regarding fixing bodily effects.  Sometimes we have to fix or minimize the effects to get rid of enough fear to let go.  The best way to fix a bodily problem is to follow what we believe.  But later, when things calm down, we should look for the cause and let it go.

 

Win-Lose 

Start with the easy stuff.  Recently I saw a quiz on Facebook that said, “Are you toxic?”  I knew what it would ask:  How often do you work out?  Do you drink?  Smoke?  How many servings of fruit and vegetables do you eat daily?  Do you eat fast food?  As I suspected, all the questions were physically oriented.  State of mind was ignored completely.

Health is the illusion’s new religion.  Athletes and models are our false Gods.  We deem their bodies perfect and strive to look like them.  Whatever makes them beautiful, we’ll buy and copy.

We’re hard wired to trust beautiful people.  But we must make sure that we know what beautiful really looks like.

According to the Facebook quiz, everyone should feel guilty and buy cleanses and diet plans and hire personal trainers.  When we’re told what to do, we’ll either rebel or blindly follow.  Either way, we’re supporting the illusion.  We’ll never find the top of the triangle.  The false God is a marketing genius.

This is hard for many people to see.  If they’ve fixed something with knowledge, a program, or practice, they don’t feel the discord of their own beliefs and knowledge anymore.  They judge those who aren’t fixing their effects in the same way.  They’ve projected out their definition of wrong on to those who eat wrong (in their opinion) or don’t work out.  If they stop their practice, their projection will come right back to them.  When we fix effects, we have to keep the belief in the fix alive.

 

Win-Win

If we get to our True Self perspective, we’ll eat and do what’s right for us.  The ancient people said that the body was the effect of the mind.  If we let go of all body beliefs, we’ll end up bodily wise and beautiful.  However, I suspect that we’d not recognize such beauty today.

Let’s design this toxicity test from the ancient perspective:  Do you love drama?  Whine?  Judge others or yourself?  Do you criticize your body?  Do you fix the effects of your body’s problems?  Do you hold rigid food and exercise beliefs?  Do you believe experts over your True Self?  If so, you’re mentally toxic to yourself and others.  You’re perpetuating the illusion of health and beauty.

Real transformation comes from the inside out.  It’s slow; we go through an awkward stage that makes us constantly want to turn back.  We find more beliefs than we can even imagine.

The mental test represents a perspective that heals the mind and the body; the physical test fixes only the body/effect.  Jesus himself said, “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” (King James Matthew 15:11)  I like to quote that when my Christian friends behave like food police — shuts them up in a hurry.

The mental win-win perspective is fair to everyone.  The homeless person can practice letting go and be healthy, beautiful, and happy just like the rich person.  Everyone can be uniquely beautiful.

Someone who wants to hold on to their false self won’t like the mental test.  But it’s time for those who benefit from the illusion to lose their false power.  Sadly, the people who say they love us and care for us are often the ones killing us with their rigid beliefs.  As we muster the courage to challenge their beliefs, our body relaxes and heals.  Our True Self stays in power; and we return to our natural state of health, joy, and beauty.

 

 

Excitement and Tears of Joy

Excitement, Tears of Joy

By Cathy Eck

I’m often asked about excitement and tears of joy.  In both cases, an emotion appears to be positive until we take a closer look.

 

The Gift of Emotions

Our emotions were designed to let us know when we’re thinking something false.  We think; then we get feedback.  If that feedback is emotion, then what we just thought was false.  That thought won’t take us to our true desires.  It will take us deeper into the illusion of pain, suffering, and problems.

This gets confusing in relationships.  Often, we’re listening to another; and we feel emotion when we take their false thought or belief into our body-mind.  If we don’t let their belief go, it sits there accumulating power; and it keeps us from getting what we want in life.  We don’t realize we have this belief; and often it’s revealed in excitement or tears of joy.  But we don’t catch the opportunity to let it go because society tells us these are positive emotions.

For most of us, we don’t realize how many beliefs we’ve accepted into our body-mind until we start letting go; it’s the supreme, “Oh fuck,” moment in life.  We focus on letting go of beliefs that generate “negative” emotion, but emotion isn’t positive or negative.  It always means the same thing; what we’re thinking right now is false.  Excitement and tears of joy aren’t positive emotions; but they’re emotions.  They’re a form of psychological reversal that looks positive; consequently, they can be difficult to decode once labeled.  We don’t want to let them go if we label them positive.

 

Excitement

Excitement is a label that we give to emotion when we associate it with something we want.  The guy or girl we like smiles at us.  We get an interview for the job we desire.  We think the emotion is related to the good news.  But the emotion is coming from what lies beneath the good news.  The event triggered our beliefs which generated the emotion.  We need to turn inward and watch our mind to see what’s actually causing the emotion.  The belief might be something like, “I never believed this would happen.”  “This is too good to be true.”  “I don’t deserve this.”  We don’t want those beliefs in our mind.  They’re false.  The beliefs could be triggering what appears to be guilt or shame if we’re conditioned to gravitate toward pain or martyrdom.  Some might fear it’s a temptation by Satan.  We want to let go of whatever we discover.

Maybe something already happened that’s generating excitement.  Let’s say we won the lottery.  That excitement might mean that we just got a false desire, or we have beliefs about lottery winners becoming selfish.  Our True Self is giving us fair warning.  We could be headed for trouble if we don’t let go.  In the moment, we focus on the outer event; we don’t hear what our mind is saying.  We don’t recognize the cause of the emotional response.  If we find the cause of the emotion, we just might avoid something bad in the future.

The most dangerous false interpretation of excitement is when it’s really fear.  If we fear something, it’s wise to let go of the cause of that fear, not head straight into the fear and call it excitement.  That’s just asking for trouble.

 

True Desire

When we fulfill a true desire, the normal reaction is more like, “That makes sense.”  If we have no beliefs, it’s obvious that the desire will come to us.  We won’t be all nervous and jumpy about it.  When we’ve been letting go, we notice the improvement in our mind; and by the time that we get our desire, it just seems logical that it would happen that way.

Many people believe and teach that emotions are creative.  This came from ancient occult teachings.  But think about that.  If emotions create our life, and we aren’t in a position where we can project the potential unwanted manifestations on to others (because we aren’t an authority figure), then it’s just a matter of time before our fears manifest.  When we use our emotions backwards; our life is like riding ocean waves.  We’ll get excited and happy when we get what we want and depressed and fearful when we don’t.  We’ll always be in a state of emotion; we’ll just label our emotional state different based on what just happened.

People often challenge me on this.  They say, “I don’t want to give up excitement.”  But they don’t realize that keeping excitement means keeping the other half of the triangle bottom, disappointment.

 

Tears of Joy

Tears of Joy are the product of very strong emotional reaction.  But it’s not the joy that’s producing the tears.  Perhaps we’re watching a movie and lovers find each other after years of being apart.  We say we’re joyful in their reunion.  So why do we cry?  Emotion always means our thoughts are false.  We have to turn inward again and watch our mind to know why.  Maybe we’re thinking, “I wish I had love like that.”  “I wish I could find my lost love.”

We’re happy that they got what they desired; but we’re sad that we aren’t getting what we want.   They’re tears of sadness or disappointment about our life, not joy for them.  We don’t see this because we’re not watching our mind when we have tears of joy.  We’re looking outside of us at something we see or hear.  Our attention is on something good or wanted; but our mind is thinking something false.  It’s a trick.

 

In my experience, watching my mind during the tears of joy or excitement often reveals causal beliefs that explains why I’ve not fulfilled my desires.  They’re liking finding a diamond.  If I turn my focus inward, and let go of the false thought or belief, the tears of joy or excitement go quickly.   And I’m one step closer to freedom and fulfilling my own true desires.
