Initiation Isn’t Like Anything Else 

Occultists Hijacked the Language of the Initiates

I often say on my blog that the occultists in power hijacked the language of initiation. What do I mean by that? Initiates were calm, unconditionally loving, and caring people; they used their minds as they were designed…from the inside out. There was nothing fake about them. They were freedom lovers, and that freedom wasn’t just for themselves. Sometimes the initiates had positions of power; they were benevolent leaders who gave freedom to all. They brought out the best in people. They were also great exposers of false beliefs. 

The best example of an initiate leader, and the easiest story to obtain, can be found in the story of Jesus in the Bible. But that story was hijacked by the occultists, just like every other myth and story from the ancient world. The story was changed to suit the needs and false desires of the occultists in power. These occultists gained more and more false power over time by slowly infiltrating people’s minds. People ultimately came to view life from the same perspective as the occultists.

The occult point of view was and is dual. It was originally divided into the esoteric secrets, which were just for the inner-circle elite; the physical and undesirable opposite, i.e., exoteric, was projected on to everyone else. Both esoteric and exoteric were false back then, and they still are today. Esoteric thinking is more like New Age or eastern philosophy; it’s very mentally or spiritually focused. Exoteric thinking is more like religion; it’s very physically focused and faith based. They are two sides of the same triangle bottom. Neither are true.

Over time, everyone came to see the occult illusion as normal and even true; and the elite all looked like Gods. Of course, the elite pushed that narrative by saying that they had the right bloodline, they were chosen by God, or they had divine authority. They had the secrets to life. The people bought this lie hook, line, and sinker; and most people are still buying it today. Once we accept this big lie, we ignore our own True Selves. So it was as if the True Self individually and collectively was tossed into the proverbial closet.

The people didn’t protest against the horrors of the illusion because they thought that was how life was supposed to be. They accepted the notion that God was watching over them, judging them, and rewarding and punishing them. In truth, it was the human fake leaders, often referred to as Lords, who were doing that. People accepted the triangle bottoms of superior and inferior…powerful and powerless. The normal people put themselves off the shitty side of every triangle bottom. This is how the the elite were able to literally lord over everyone. It is very important to use the triangle process to let such second-cause pairs of opposites go. Every bit of the occult narrative was a bold-faced lie; today, nothing much has changed. The occultists are still fueling the same lies. Only the people and circumstances have changed.

This is good news and bad news. The good news is that when you let go of a belief individually, you are also escaping the collective mindset. When you let go in the present, you are letting go for all time. So if you believe in karma, you undo it by letting go. Then you realize that karma was also a big lie. The bad news is that these beliefs have a lot of believers and are very longstanding; so you must be persistent and willing to do whatever it takes to let them go. I provide as much support as I can; but I can’t let go for any other person. I can only expose what’s false, which makes it easier to see through the occult lies and let go. If I expose something as false, you know that I’ve let it go and lived to tell about it.

The occultists began their rise to power thousands of years ago. The Bible is not the word of God; it is meant to be a full-circle story. Most of the stories in the Bible were originally told by initiates; they’re exquisite metaphors for how the mind works. Sadly, the initiates’ stories were hijacked by the occultists; and that brought us to the religious views that exist today…both esoteric and exoteric. The occultists put their spin on the Bible stories, and the initiation component appeared to be lost. The Old Testament provides the mental history of the beginning of the illusion as manifested by the false God of Moses and his followers, the Jews; the New Testament was meant to be the way out of the illusion, or initiation. But the New Testament got hijacked by the occultists, who didn’t want to lose their fake power; so they changed Jesus’s story from a story of initiation to a story of martyrdom. That was a big setback for the people of earth.

The fall is a real thing, but it was mental…not physical. In the fall, people turned their focus outside of their mind, and away from their True Self; they started following false leaders who were Moses-like. Moses was a tyrant, just like the tyrants we see today. He used trickery and occult magick to fool his people just like the fake news does today. He demanded that the people serve him because he said that he was divinely appointed by God. He was basically a dick…a false leader of the worst kind. In street gang terms, we’d say that Moses punched down on the people in feminine roles…those who didn’t have power and authority. But if you know any deeply religious people; they hold Moses in mind as a role model. That’s why we still have the same types of leaders today. People become like the people they follow. If you follow dicks, guess what you become?

Jesus was different. Jesus said to never follow such leaders. He said that God was within. Jesus represented true initiation. In the Gold Circle and Golden Gateway (which used to be the Creative Leadership program), I take the Bible apart piece by piece, and I prove exactly what I’m saying. I expose Moses as false, and I decode what Jesus was actually saying to us so that we could experience initiation again. My decodes validate everything I’ve written. I’m never channeled a word of what I’ve written. It all came from research, letting go, direct experience, and ultimately the marriage of logic and emotion.

You have no idea how much I’d love to share those decodes with the world. My heart beats through every word of them. When we find our True Self’s point of view, we so want to express it. That’s what we were naturally designed to do. It took me decades to do those decodes; and I put myself in very uncomfortable places and circumstances in order to do them. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to excavate the occult lies. I share everything I’ve learned about letting go. I hold nothing back with anyone. But sharing the decodes at this time would not be good for others. Too many preachers, ministers, rabbis, gurus, and priests are still stuck in the illusion. They still think that you can learn the truth; and they view themselves as teachers of the truth. When people teach “the truth,” it becomes false. It’s like wine that has turned into vinegar. My decodes are written to take an initiate on a letting go journey; so they are useless, or even harmful, to someone who doesn’t know how to let go.

So I can’t do what I want to do at this time. But I do make those decodes available to people who have been letting go. That’s why the decodes are behind a paywall…the Golden Gateway. No one can join that program who has not done the Gold Circle. So I know that the people who join the Golden Gateway do want freedom, and they can let go. I also know that they have enough compassion that they will not do something that would harm another. I know that they are willing and able to expose false if they have to; I’m not saying that it would be easy for them. Exposure of the occult illusion is pretty damn scary for most people, even people in my programs. Too many people want to keep their religious point of view. Too many people still think that the Bible is the word of God, as if God spoke in words and wrote books. Such people have free will to hold those beliefs in their minds. I have no right to tell any other what to put in or take out of their mental container. But if I can help others to get free, I do want to do that. So I walk a very fine line; and I do ONLY what I’m inspired to do. At times, what I’m inspired to do doesn’t even make sense to me until I gain some hindsight.

This macrocosmic transition from leadership by initiates to leadership by the occultists was a metaphor for the microcosmic transition whereby our false mind slowly took the lead individually and collectively, which pushed our True Self/Mind into the background. People started thinking from the outside in, which is backwards…not from the inside out as our mind was designed. That hasn’t changed. Today many people are putting positive, spiritual, or politically-correct words into their minds; that is still outside-in thinking. Those words might accurately describe the True Self; but by putting such words into their minds, they are trying to make their false self into their True Self. That’s impossible. They’re still adding to their minds; they’re not letting go or subtracting from their minds.

In my programs, I watch people struggle to make the shift toward the inner-directed mindset; for nearly everyone, being outer directed is a hard habit to break. I wish I had a magic wand that I could wave and make it easy for them. I know how badly they want freedom. But the occult did a very good job of training us to use our minds backwards. Often by the time someone finds initiation, they’ve been holding on to beliefs as true and following others for decades, or even lifetimes.

So be easy on yourself with regard to letting go; initiation takes time and patience. If you become angry at the time it’s taking to free your mind, it will take even longer. The best way to alleviate that anger is to expose the people who programmed you as false…the politicians, doctors, healers, therapists, scientists, and gurus. They are the cause of all problems, suffering, and even disease; but most of them don’t realize that they are the cause. Their minds were programmed too.

This transformation, which caused us to view the occult illusion as true, has been like a slow boil; it has happened over a very long period of time. As knowledge replaced wisdom, faith replaced inner knowing, and education replaced common sense, the illusion became more solid and appeared to be more true. As time went on, fixing physical effects, instead of removing the mental causes pushed by the medical and psychiatry systems were like high-test fuel for the illusion. Even general science is now fueling the illusion and the globalists’ nefarious agenda. The occult way of viewing life has been like a giant pyramid of power that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Of course, this mental pyramid of power is not to be confused with the amazing physical pyramids. But that’s a story for another day.

We can see this mental pyramid structure clearly in organizations of all sorts from corporations, governments, religions, the military, and the justice system to condo associations and school boards; even some family units have pyramid structures. People rise to the top of a mental power pyramid over time based on their service to the organization’s leadership and the goals of the organization. When we are caught in any pyramid of power, we do not expose the leaders as false; we obey them and get rewarded, or we rebel against them and get punished or banished. There are no free people in any pyramid of power.  Obedience and rebellion is another triangle bottom to let go. These persistent and widely-believed triangle bottoms don’t disappear in a day. You have to chip away at them over time.

Pyramids of power are all based on win-lose thinking, not win-win thinking. Today there are even financial pyramid schemes, which are based on the same occult pyramid structures. The people at the bottom of the pyramid scheme do all of the hard work selling overpriced products; those at the top reap all of the rewards based on their ability to recruit, i.e., manipulate and lie to others to get them to join the scheme. The downline that is created allows the top achievers to project on the bottom dwellers. The bottom hopes to one day rise to the top so they can also project on a downline. It’s a textbook occult scheme.

I’m not saying that any of these people are bad or evil; I don’t believe in good and evil. We all play in the illusion until we choose initiation. We all have a story to live and that story can take one life or hundreds of lives; it’s our choice. Normal people don’t realize that they’re fueling the occult by holding on to belief systems. But if you are here reading my blog, you probably do want freedom. So you need to know that these organization do not support freedom so you cannot trust them, you should not join them, nor should you believe anything they say or do. When people treat these organizations as false and worthless, which they are, they will disappear. I can assure you of that. They need us far more than we need them.

Words and Spelling

Words were the keystone for the occultists’ rise to power; it’s no accident that the word “spell” is connected to words. The occultists view words as spells. These false leaders choose their words carefully; and people go into a sort of hypnotic spell or trance with occult leaders when they speak. They take in the leader’s words without discriminating because they like what the leader says. The followers believe that they are hearing the truth expressed in words from the leader; but the occult leader knows that people will follow them if they say what people want to hear. They don’t mean what they say; they are just saying it to get power, money, and fame. They are offering things that you can only get permanently by freeing your mind; and they aren’t talking about letting go. So they are making a promise that they can’t and won’t keep. We don’t want to take their so-called truth into our minds; when we add to our minds, we add to our false self, which covers up our True Self. Our True Self is whole and complete. There is nothing that we need to add to it. This is all very simple and logical. It is not rocket science.

Occultists know how to manage appearances very well. They’re clever at getting people to blindly trust them; and using projection, they get people to overlook their nearly constant and blatant hypocrisy.  People often believe that gurus, spiritual teachers, motivational speakers, and progressive leaders are True Selves; but they’re not. I call them clones because they look and act like True Selves, but they aren’t True Selves. They wear very attractive social masks. Traits like truth, spirituality, equality, unity, and even optimism are qualities that we do find in every True Self. But a True Self would never tell you to learn or develop those qualities. They’d know that you were born with those qualities. That is how you expose these charlatans as false; they tell you things that you knew and were at birth.

Occultists always project; so we always get the bad end of the stick (or triangle bottom) when we believe them and trust them. If we don’t believe them, however, their projections boomerang right back at them. Thus exposure, and non-belief, is what ultimately brings down the illusion; and those who have stolen the clone thrones within the illusion will go down with the illusory ship. The occultists are nothing without followers holding them up. Here’s a physical metaphor for initiation: When we start taking stones out of the bottom of a pyramid, we eventually bring the whole thing down. The same thing happens in a pyramid of power except we’re removing beliefs, or lies, instead of stones.

It is noteworthy that the word occult contains the word “cult.” A cult leader is nothing without his or her followers. The followers of the cult leader give their power to the cult leader’s belief system at the expense of their own True Selves. In addition, the cult leader projects the undesirable side of his triangle bottom on to the followers. So the cult leader (and I include all gurus in the bucket labeled cult leaders) gets a double win; and the followers get a double lose. This is why they say that you must kill the Buddha to become like the Buddha. You have to stop believing the false leaders who teach beliefs; your belief in their belief system empowers them, not you.

In initiation, we don’t share beliefs; we expose them ALL as false and let them all go.  Then everyone lives from their True Self. I get no power from anyone; and I also don’t project on the people I support. I’m just a normal person who is also letting go; I share my successes and failures so that others can walk more quickly and easily down the initiation path. Personally, I let go using the Three Steps until I love everyone unconditionally; once I love someone unconditionally, it helps them to bring up their false beliefs so they can let them go. If they let go, and it is always their choice to do so or not, they eventually come to think like themselves again; they do not think like me unless they go against my very strong warning and copy what I say. I remind people all the time to use my words as a catalyst for letting go. Don’t learn what I say; don’t add any more knowledge to your mind.

Today we see plenty of examples where words are being used to trick people, such as the relabeling that took mentally-regressive political policies and labeled them “progressive.” Communism and socialism aren’t progressive; anyone who things that progressivism is a good thing is very deeply stuck in the illusion. The occultists took beliefs and false desires from a very old world order where the few rule over the many, and they relabeled their vision the “New World Order.” They want globalism because they are so selfish as to want to rule the whole world. Likewise, the New Age is not new, it’s the old age before organized religion came into being but after the initiates had the most power. Positive thinking and saying affirmations is not actually positive; it’s a way to project the unwanted side of the triangle bottom on to others. I could go on and on. The relabeling trap is used because it works.

Patriarchal and Matriarchal are Two Sides of the Collective Triangle Bottom

Prior to the patriarchal point of view, which many of the so-called woke (more relabeling since the woke are the most asleep) today refer to as toxic masculinity, there was the matriarchal point of view that was also very false. The New Age, self-help, progressivism, alternative healing, therapy, feminism, social justice, and more have risen out of the old matriarchal point of view. In the patriarchal point of view, we tend to lead with logic; in the matriarchal point of view, we tend lead with our emotions. In truth, logic and emotions were meant to work together as a team in our inner alchemical marriage. In fact, the current patriarchal point of view was a failed attempt to fix the very harmful matriarchal point of view. We are dodging this same bullet today.

An initiate leads with their masculine mind because the masculine mind is naturally assertive. The feminine mind is naturally receptive. If one person is throwing a ball (asserting) and the other is catching the ball (receiving), the person throwing is leading. The person catching the ball must adjust to the person throwing it. That just makes logical sense. In matriarchal thinking, however, it’s like the receiver is asking the thrower to adjust to wherever they want the ball to land. Thought is assertive; emotions are receptive, and they are meant to be used for discrimination. So in matriarchal thinking, you have people who claim that others are responsible for their emotions when they are the one who is asserting. When we are asserting, and we feel emotions, we are holding the mental cause of those emotions in OUR own mind every single time.

The feminine mind is where we NATURALLY discriminate. Our feminine was designed to keep our masculine mind in line. That has not happened in modern times. Feminists want to be men, and they fight for masculine roles; they have not done their job of exposing false. So in matriarchal-dominant times, the illusion typically grows. Then the pendulum swings, and the patriarchy bring the illusion back into line. But neither group ever destroy it. Note that this has absolutely nothing to do with physical gender or sex. But if people understood this, all of those weird and totally false gender issues would be gone. They all come from matriarchal thinking.

An initiated one would be a true patriarch, who would listen to the feminine and trust the feminine discrimination. The true patriarch would never dominate or control others; they would not have an aggressive or warring mind. They would assert their win-win-for-all vision into the world; and it would be a joy for others to help them create that vision. That’s how those beautiful pyramids and other ancient buildings that we can’t build today were erected. Being feminine to a true masculine leader is wonderful. Such a leader will bring out the very best in us. I’ve had that experience, and there is nothing like it.

The matriarchal time period of history is what came right after the MENTAL fall. That’s when the illusion was first manifested; and so the earth no longer appeared to be the Garden of Eden. It’s all in the Old Testament of the Bible. But like the True Self, the Garden of Eden didn’t go anywhere. You can’t destroy anything that’s true. Believing in the illusion is like wearing a blindfold. The world is still around you, but you can’t see it until you take the blindfold off. Once we believe in the illusion, we see it until we remove the blinders, i.e., beliefs, from our mind.

Here is what you need to know. Every belief system contributes to an aspect of the illusion. The True Self doesn’t have even one belief; but it does use first-cause (nonjudgmental, physical, and win win) knowledge in order to create. When we create in first cause, we’re outside of the illusion. So creation will be easy once we escape the illusion because the illusion was founded on the curse of hard work.

First-cause knowledge is useful for our survival…building, farming, sewing, cooking, etc. It’s physical knowledge. That being said, first-cause knowledge can be very sophisticated, like we see in beautiful fashion, furniture, cars, or architecture; we don’t have to live like cavemen in order to live from first cause. Throughout history, first-cause information was shared by mentoring and apprenticeships. In first cause, there’s no sharing of beliefs; the master of a task helps the apprentice to learn the task. Second-cause knowledge, on the other hand, has been taught primarily by religion, government rules and laws, and education. Of course, the internet has turned the sharing of second-cause knowledge into a virtual pandemic.

From the standpoint of initiation, it’s a good thing that the New Age, the New World Order, and other old belief systems have come up to the surface for our review; but people are once again accepting these beliefs as new and true. They aren’t discriminating and rejecting what is false. Many people reason that old beliefs were better than new beliefs. That’s not true. No beliefs, our mindset prior to the fall, is much better than even one belief or even the sweetest of beliefs. Beliefs put us on the triangle bottom. All beliefs are dual. There is no exit from the triangle bottom without letting go of both sides of any belief from our OWN mental container. In initiation, we let go when old beliefs arise from the shadows, both individually and collectively.  In that way, we use the world around us to support our quest for freedom.

Here’s another modern trap. Today people are doing some of the same research that I did over thirty years ago. It’s easier now because we have the internet. But most of these researchers (and the same goes for seekers, channels, psychics, or prophets) are making a huge mistake. When we research, we should ONLY look for what’s false…never ever research to find the truth because the truth when expressed in words becomes false. Books that tell us the truth of life are all false.

I have a huge library in my condo that I accumulated during the days of my research. Many of those books contain old myths and stories. I have many Bible translations. I have books that explain different belief systems from around the world. I have occult texts that allowed me to see how the occultists used their minds. I love books. I love understanding others, even the people who are deeply stuck in the illusion and don’t want out. I want to unconditionally love everyone; understanding others gives me the compassion to achieve that desire. But the books that I will NOT keep on my shelves are books that explain the truth in words; they are worthless. They sound like a first-grade reader when you know your own True Self. I won’t even donate that crap; I just dispose of them. They’re trash. I expose a lot of the popular “truth” books in the Gold Circle. Most of those books are found in the genre of New Age or were written by current eastern gurus. People often tell me that their guru is saying the same things that I say; they are brainwashed to think that. I would bet my last dollar that their guru has not taught them how to let go or how to discriminate; if that guru taught them how to discriminate, they would discriminate with the guru and run away as fast as they could.

We were all born with the truth (True Self) inside of our minds. So we don’t need to learn the truth; we need to unveil it. We need to take off our masks and express our beautiful True Selves to the world. Always remember the banner of this site (shown below). It’s the key to initiation. It’s the key to discriminating between the con artist clones and the people who truly have your back.

If we need to get the truth from another, then we aren’t listening to our own True Self. So we need to let go until we feel inspired from within again. If we put “the truth” into our false mind in the past, we need to let that truth go. You can’t let go of your True Self, and if you let go of the truth from your false mind, your True Self will come back out of the closet. It’s that simple; people make it hard because they fear letting go of their memorized truth. After you clean the words of truth out of your mind, you will be in the illusion but not of it; you will find yourself exposing false just by living your life, and you won’t be able to help it. You will prove beliefs and belief systems wrong by your very existence.

This is an awkward time in initiation. I used to expose beliefs as I lived my life, and I didn’t understand what I was doing. People said that I made them emotional or envious. I didn’t know how to stop that from happening. I thought there was something wrong with me. But their emotions and envy were caused by their thinking of me, not my thinking of them. I was exposing the false beliefs in their mind without realizing what I was doing. If they had known how to let go, I would have been a pure godsend as I pushed their false beliefs up to the surface where they could let them go. But they didn’t know how to let go; they didn’t have a clue.

I couldn’t get upset with people for thinking that I caused their emotions. They were outer directed; they had been trained to use their minds backwards. They didn’t even know the causal belief was in their own mind. I was able to let go, but I didn’t know how I did it. It was natural for me. So I went into their illusion, took on their beliefs as true, and I figured out how to escape their illusion. I did this many, many times with a large variety of people with different belief systems. Then I wrote whatever I discovered. Now I don’t feel bad when I cause people’s beliefs and the related emotions to arise. If they want freedom, I’m doing them a huge favor. If they don’t want freedom, then we won’t enjoy being around each other anyway. They’ll just want me to believe their beliefs; and I’m never going to do that.

While marinating in the illusion, I came to understand that people had been trained by occultists to hate their own True Selves; and so when I followed my inspiration, I brought this painful psychological reversal to the surface for others. While creating the Gold Circle, I often saw someone’s inciting incident…their own personal fall moment in their story. I could reveal exactly what they needed to let go; it was obvious to me. I don’t do that anymore. I did it enough to reveal all the different ways that people fell into the illusion; then I was inspired to stop. I wrote about all of that in the Gold Circle. Now I realize that I stopped for a very important reason. When you get free, you want to be able to say, “I did this myself. I know how I got stuck in the illusion, and I know what I let go to get out.”

The Occult Origin

Let me explain the origin of the occultists. It will help you to make sense of all of this. The occultists have always been frauds. The occultists were failed initiates who desperately wanted the true power of the initiates, but they couldn’t get it. Their minds were too polluted; for some reason, they couldn’t or wouldn’t let go of their beliefs. So these frauds copied the initiates both physically and verbally. They hijacked the initiates’ words and stories. They copied the things the initiates did naturally and turned them into practices, rituals, and ceremonies.

Initiates wrote stories using the True Self’s language…the language of metaphor. They mentored others through stories; they didn’t impose beliefs on the candidates for initiation. The occultists turned the initiates’ metaphors into symbolism; they made the initiates’ stories physical and literal. That’s what they still do today. Metaphor is temporary; symbolism is permanent. Metaphor is life giving; symbolism is grave and death giving. Honoring any symbol is like tying yourself to the illusion for life until you die. 

To get free, we have to let go of all beliefs in symbolism. A logo, icon, or symbol should look like nothing but a shorthand way of communicating. It should have no beliefs attached to it. As I let go while decoding ancient stories, all of the symbols in the stories lost their false power; they transformed into meaningful metaphors. The metaphors were validation that I had let go. This wasn’t something I planned would happen; it’s just what happened.

I came to realize that there was a time when the initiates led the people; and life on earth was like the Garden of Eden. People didn’t communicate or act in second cause like they do today. The occultists invented second-cause beliefs, which was the beginning of the fallen mindset. Initiates built beautiful things; over time, however, occultists made those things their own. Occultists took everything associated with initiation and turned it into their power tools. They put their meaning and beliefs on to the places and possessions of the initiates.

Over time, the occultists convinced the people that they wanted to follow them, and even be like them, not the initiates. Occultists are like Hollywood stars; they shine very brightly. But that shine is fake. The shine comes only when they can projected out their shadow on to others. The occultists accomplished their goal of gaining power over everyone in two ways that are still used today in all forms of marketing. They offered to relieve people’s emotions or to fix their problems, or they promised the people a false desire. People started to want the fruits of the illusion, not the fruits of their True Selves. They were now eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, i.e., second-cause thinking; they were ignoring the Tree of Life, i.e., first-cause thinking.

The people started to ignore the initiates as they came to ignore their own True Selves. The macrocosm and the microcosm are always a match. So the initiates backed away. They felt that it was important to let people see what they were manifesting with their occult beliefs. People did see what they were manifesting, and it was horrible. They were living in an illusion of suffering that looked real and true. But they had lost all memory of the True Self and Eden. They believed the occultists who said that we fell permanently, and there was no way back to Eden. They believed the religious liars who told them that they would see heaven after death, or they’d get a better life next time if they were obedient and good. It’s was a giant, worldwide scam. The people had no choice but to accept the illusion as real and therefore true. They made the best of a bad situation. This giant error is what we reverse in initiation.

We still have books like the Bible, other spiritual texts, and so-called myths that were written from the True Self point of view using metaphor. These books are available to anyone, but we see what we believe with such “living writing.” Living writing is writing that changes along with the change in the reader’s point of view. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder; but the ugliness is also in the eye of the beholder. When the reader has an illusory point of view, they see proof that their illusion is true when they read such living texts. However, when they let go, they see validation that what they thought was true was actually false.

Sadly, occultists have trained children for thousands of years to think like they do…literally and physically. Religion and school are all about indoctrination into the occult mindset. Today many people think that other Bible books will be revealed, and those books will contain the truth. But if the readers view those new books with the same literal/physical mindset, those books won’t do them any good. In fact, those books will fuel the illusion even more. The occultists set up their scheme to win; and they blocked all the exits.

When our mind is free, we won’t depend on a special book or a special guru. If we like books, we will use them to discriminate. Words and writing are not inherently bad; if we use anyone’s writing as a catalyst for freedom, i.e., for exposing the false beliefs in our own mind, then that writing won’t contain any word spells for us. So you see, we have the power to free ourselves; and we always did. No one has to be a victim of mind control anymore. But people often need someone to remind them of that because other people who want to control them remind them that their beliefs are true every minute of every day.

Let’s get honest about the occultists. Let me state a couple of unknown facts about them. First of all, every belief system is a product of the occult. The occult started in the east and spread west over time. So you don’t avoid the occult point of view by moving to eastern religions or practices. The occult is everywhere; it’s global. It has many forms. If something has beliefs or practices involved in it, it’s occult. The globalist elite are the leaders of the occult point of view today. They are everywhere…in every country, race, and religion. They want to control every aspect of our lives from what we think, where we live, what we eat, and who we love. Often, these false leaders live in the shadows while their minions unknowingly program our minds on their behalf.

If you’ve believed any belief system in the past, or do now, the occult has gotten into your mind. You aren’t alone. We all fell prey to their trickery. Don’t ever feel bad about being duped by these con artists. They view themselves as clever and us as stupid; they project stupid on to us. It’s all part of their fake magick, which is all mental…in fact, it’s false mental. After letting go, you will see that the occultists are the false ones. If anyone is stupid, it would be them. They are nothing but failed initiates. If you stick with letting go, you will surpass them; and they will never affect you again.

The occultists were envious people who tried to say and do what the initiates were inspired to say and do; the occultists believed that you could fake it until you made it. They thought the power of the initiates was in what they said or did. But that wasn’t true; the initiates’ power came from the purity of their minds.

The metaphors used by the initiates were just useful communication tools, which had no power in and of themselves. But the occultists didn’t realize that fact, so they tried to give power to the initiates’ metaphors by turning them into long-lasting symbols. Being primarily matriarchal minded, the occultists added meaning and emotions to those symbols thinking that would give them power. But this had consequences. This caused people’s minds to psychologically reverse. Now emotions no longer meant that beliefs were false; emotions now meant that beliefs had power or beliefs were true. The occultists imposed their symbols and beliefs on to others in order to gain the power of numbers. They had to do all of this because they had no real power. A True Self would never do any of this to a fellow human being.

Today the occult programming is viewed as too hard to reverse by most people; but what other choice do we have? Do we keep fueling the occult beliefs and allow earth to continue to be a hell of suffering? Or do we do our part and let go as much as we can.

Symbols are said to have power by the occultists; but it’s really the power of numbers of believers that give a symbol its false power. Symbols are just another form of spell or curse. That’s why the occultists plaster their fake symbols all over the place. They don’t care if we love or hate their symbols; they just want us to believe that the symbols have power. They want us to project our real power on to them as they project their unwanted side of the triangle bottom on to us.

When we come to see their symbols as false, we strip them of a lot of power. Again, this can be seen in the words that we use. If you remove the “S” from the word “curse,” you get the word “cure.” That’s not a medical cure, which is nothing but fixing the effects of beliefs; it’s a real cure…the removal of the illusion from our minds. It’s a cure that eliminates all diseases and suffering. The letter “S” stands for sin or the deception of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden. Sin was originally a term for second-cause or living from beliefs, not the True Self. If you take the beliefs out of a symbol or a story, you get back to the metaphors.  You regain the initiates’ mindset.

For eons, the esoteric occult ideas have come to the surface from time to time, much like what is happening today; but people treat these beliefs as true, not false. Today, people are noticing the occult symbols; but instead of declaring them false, they’re giving them even more power by teaching people about them. They are confused because they don’t know that emotions mean false. When they discover the symbolic meaning, they feel emotion; and they think that means the symbol is true and even powerful. Now they want those symbols for themselves. So they are becoming the deceivers…the Serpents of the future. In essence, an endless battle has been raging over whose beliefs are true. Who gets to control the symbols and who gets to own the cherished landmarks and buildings. This battle doesn’t end until we leave the illusion.

Once someone is indoctrinated into the illusory mindset, they get stuck. It’s isn’t their fault, and none of us have room to judge the people who are still most stuck today, including the globalists themselves. No one alive today invented the fallen way of using our minds. We all learned it from our ancestors. The people who invented this way of thinking go back thousands of years. People estimate that the Old Testament of the Bible goes back 6000 years; so that’s a good estimate of what we’re talking about for the age of the current illusion. We’ve all fallen prey to some aspect of the illusion. But that’s now in the past. In initiation, we correct the past so that we can create a beautiful future.

We stop the indoctrination process in its tracks. That’s why I took my children out of religion and school; and I kept them away from medicine as much as possible. But at that time, I had not fully decoded the New Age and alternative healing. Now I have; so I warn others to stay away from such things.

We see a perfect example of this very strong indoctrination at work today with the Corona virus hoax; people have been trained to trust their doctors blindly. The doctors lied to them, and even harmed them; but the people still trusted them. The people didn’t know how to discriminate between true and false on the topic of medicine. They don’t realize that we wouldn’t need medicine of any sort if we didn’t have second-cause beliefs in our minds. It’s sad; it’s hard to watch people suffer. That’s why I do what I do. We eliminate the illusion by letting go ourselves, exposing false, and become true role models for others to follow. That’s not an easy task; but it’s a worthwhile task.

The Great Awakening and the idea of ascension is another version of the same old ruse. It’s like the Renaissance period in European history; it did come to an end. Unless people let go of their beliefs, the pendulum will continue to swing back and forth between patriarchal and matriarchal points of view. Belief systems will continue to rise and fall like empires. But the good news is that the rising and falling is quickening. The pendulum is no longer swinging slowly over centuries; it’s swinging back and forth over decades. In fact, it’s moving closer to swinging back and forth over years. When the pendulum quickens and the back and forth becomes months, days, or hours, even the most rigid illusion dwellers will come to see the triangle bottom with ease. Then letting go and my decodes will make sense to everyone. That’s when I’ll release my decodes freely because no one will use them to deceive others. I don’t know when that will be. It might be a few years, or it might be a few decades. I’m not psychic, nor do I want to be.

The way to end all suffering, and I do mean all suffering, is to strip the power out of the occult illusion by not believing a damn word they say. We do that every single time we let go. We do that every single time we expose any second-cause belief as false. The occult in power are all like the Wizard of Oz. Once we reveal that their power is false, they will be forced to admit that it was all a big con game. They will be the losers, which is actually the win win for all, even them.

When the occultists restricted our freedom, they also restricted their own freedom. In the end, they will have no power at all. They will be normal, and those of us who have been traveling the path of initiation will be natural again. Natural trumps normal. Becoming natural isn’t about eating organic food or doing internal cleanses; those are ways of fixing the effects. Becoming natural is ONLY about our state of mind. Once we are free minded, our True Selves will reign again. No false leader will tell us what to do; they will be powerless. Our individual stories and our collective story will have to come full circle. But like I said, this might take a while; fortunately, we don’t have to wait for others. Many people have joined me in letting go, and they will be the way showers and the support for those who will come on board the freedom train in the future. Each time one of us lets go, or exposes false, it gets a little easier for others. Our future gets a little brighter.

The basis of the occult point of view, which is still normal today, is that knowledge is the same as knowing. The occultists treat second-cause thought, which has judgement in it like it’s the same as first-cause, nonjudgmental thinking. Today people commonly say that they are discriminating as they’re obviously judging. Imposing beliefs, rules, or demands on another is judging them. Imposing our beliefs on others means that we don’t trust that person to be naturally good. We should be letting go, not giving them more beliefs. Bad and evil were imposed on us by the occultists who wanted power. Discriminating is being able to say “NO” to people who impose rules, mandates, beliefs, or second-cause knowledge on us. Our natural knowing is beyond words…beyond spells…beyond curses.  Our natural knowing is the cure for everything.

The Occult Hijacked the Word Initiation

Now let’s go back to where we started this article. Let me give you an example of level confusion that’s intimately tied to what I do. Level confusion occurs when a word that points to the True Self becomes knowledge that people memorize and store in their false mental container. The word initiation was originally about freeing one’s mind. It was simple in theory; but even thousands of years ago, it took time to do…generally about a decade or more. Initiation was based on the notion that life is a story that’s meant to come full circle. We start out as a True Self, then we muck around in the illusion and get all mentally twisted around. We believe false and ignore our True Selves. At some point, we’ve had enough of the illusion, so we enter initiation and come out with the same pure mind that we had “initially.” “Initially” is the pivotal word in understanding initiation; the initiates wanted to return to the mind that they were born with. Initiation was not the same as seeking. There was no teaching or learning in halls of initiation. Jesus said that we want our mind to be like a child’s mind; he didn’t mean that we need a childish mind. He meant that we want to lead our life from our True Self…that’s a child’s mind…it’s pure and has no beliefs or second-cause knowledge in it yet.

Like so many other words, the occultists stole the word “initiation” from the initiates. But occult initiations are very different from true initiation. Occult initiations don’t involve letting go; they involve willpower, second-cause beliefs and knowledge, symbolism, rituals, and holding on for life. The occult initiation programs involved learning and memorization. They used rules, oaths, rituals, and ceremonies to keep their illusion fueled and intact. 

There was no formal testing in pure initiation; there was only validation. Life provided the validation that the initiate’s mind had changed. That’s the same today. That’s why we can do initiation without leaving our normal life. Our outer world changes as our inner world changes. We can let go as we work, play, or cook our dinner.

There were, however, insane occult initiation tests that are still performed today by the elite of the world; those often involve sex, children, and many other horrible activities (like they exposed in the movie “Eyes Wide Shut“). We can’t do much about the elite as normal people with no authority. However, there are traces of occult initiation in other more normal aspects of life that we can expose and eliminate. The occult way of thinking often starts with cliques in school, whereby kids have to give up their other friendships in order to join the clique. We see occult initiation in street gangs and secret societies. We also see occult initiation, often complete with tests, in college sororities and fraternities. People identify with these strange groups as if their membership in the group is an improvement of who they are.  That’s never true.

I was never one for cliques in school. I was friends with anyone who wanted to be my friend. I never liked clubs. I did join the Girl Scouts for a while because I liked learning how to do physical things. But that wasn’t a clique. During my first year in college, I lived on campus. I didn’t like college life; so after that year, I got a job and went to night school. Night school was wonderful; the teachers usually have real jobs in the day. So they had real-life stories and experiences to share.

But while I was living at a college, I thought that fraternities and sororities were the silliest thing that I’d ever seen. So I started my own sorority in order to mock them; my sorority wasn’t popular. You’ve probably haven’t heard of it. It was called “IMA PROTO ZOA.” The name was meaningful. Oddly, protozoa can be free or parasitic, just like people. The occult way of life is based on the host-parasite relationship or what therapists call codependence. Initiation was and is all about freedom. You can’t be a free and a codependent person at the same time just like you can’t be a free protozoa and a parasitic protozoa at the same time. Of course, no one got my metaphor; they rarely do.

The experience taught me that college life was not for me. I learned a great trade in college, accounting; and that led me to computers and systems design. My professions didn’t have any beliefs attached to them. They were just a physical and first-cause mental skill that taught me a lot about life. Later on, my advanced degrees in psychology and esoteric studies (the occult) were done with the intent to expose those ways of thinking as false. Many times, I’ve had to go into the belly of the beast to know why certain teachings were FALSE. Now I share my experiences, just like my night-school teachers.

The occultists want us to associate the word “initiation” with saying or doing something as a demonstration of our will and power. They do not want us to discover our True Self, lest we will have all the power; and they will have none. The original idea of initiation was about mental purification; it had no verbal or physical component. There were no rules, beliefs, or practices in initiation because the initiates eliminated mental causes; they didn’t fix physical effects. In the illusion, we fix physical effects, which is another trick that keeps us stuck. But if we don’t know how to let go, we have no choice but to fix effects. That’s why people who fix effects make a whole lot of money. Exposing is not very lucrative yet; but one day it will be. The world is moving in that direction.

If people let go and start seeing the occult beliefs and programming as false, the pyramid of power will come tumbling down. The occultists like to call us useless idiots or useless eaters. That’s projection; that’s exactly what they are being by saying and doing what they say and do. However, we must remember that they have a True Self too; sadly, it’s highly unlikely that they will find their True Self until they’re forced to lose and lose bigly. By exposing them, however, they will ultimately lose. By rejecting their projections, they will ultimately lose. By ignoring their symbols and rituals, they will definitely lose. By living our true and perfect life, they will lose bigly. When they realize that they have lost, and will never win again, then they will all be banging at the door of Gateway To Gold to learn to let go. They will want freedom too…everyone does.

Luce: The Movie (and Clones)

The Luce Official Trailer

The movie “Luce” recently came out in theaters.  I saw it months ago at a San Diego film festival event.  I wrote this article right after I saw it, but never published it.  I do have some spoilers throughout the article.  If you want to be surprised, see the movie before you read it. On the other hand, my review will give you a different perspective regarding the characters’ minds; so if you read the article first, you’ll probably see things that you’d have otherwise overlooked.

As I edited this article, I realized that this movie was a great review of the illusion, letting go, clone characters, and initiation…all the things that I write about. The movie is based on the biggest roadblock that we have on the path to freedom. Who is telling the truth, and who is lying? The last line of the trailer sums up the whole movie. “We never really know what’s going on with people.” That’s how it is for most people. But I show you that you can know what’s going on for anyone once you understand the way the human mind was designed and the way it was reprogrammed. Then you’re able to have true compassion for anyone.

Luce” was a film festival favorite at the Sundance and the Tribeca film festivals.  The advertisement for the film festival event that I attended said that the film was about the stories that we tell ourselves and the beliefs that we need to let go.  I thought, “Wow, this film has my name on it.

In addition, the screenwriter, J.C. Lee, was holding a Q&A session after the film.  I love getting the perspective of screenwriters. I love hearing about their writing process and learning where they got their ideas. Lee was introduced as the most innovative and up-and-coming screenwriter today. Clearly my expectations for this film event were very high.

Here’s the plot.  A black child from Africa named Luce was trained to kill as a child terrorist. Luce was adopted by a wealthy, white American couple (the Edgars) when he was about seven or eight years old.  He grew up in a home where he had everything he wanted and needed, and he became a very intelligent and successful teenager. The movie was only about Luce’s senior year in high school. 

The film opened with Luce giving a well-crafted speech to his senior class.  Luce was decent looking, a great athlete, popular, and an excellent speaker.  He was also a star on the debate team, so he clearly knew how to win an argument. Lawyers, i.e., people who debate for a living, make really good liars. They can lie without showing any emotion. Debating is about winning an argument not getting to the win-win point of view or finding the truth. So I’m not fond of debating; it doesn’t take us toward freedom. But debating served Luce’s character in the film.

In his speech, Luce talked of loving the American Dream.  He talked of freedom and especially of loving the American holiday, Independence Day.  Luce was considered a school hero because of his amazing transformation from terrorist fighter in Africa to successful American teenager. 

After the speech, Luce introduced his parents to his history teacher, Harriet Wilson, who was a black woman; her character was played by Octavia Spencer. Luce gushed over how much he loved this particular teacher.  His comments were clearly over-the-top.  It was all for show.

On the way home from the speech, Luce admitted to his parents that he actually hated Ms. Wilson; he referred to her as a bitch.  So we learned that Luce had a nice, middle class public persona covering a private false self that was full of anger and rage. That isn’t uncommon. Most people hide what they’re really thinking in public, or so I’m told. As you can probably tell, I say what I’m thinking in public and in private. Luce was interesting mostly because he was so extreme.

The students in the “bitch” teacher’s class were given an assignment to write about an inspiring leader.  Luce wrote about an African philosopher, Frantz Fanon, who believed in the necessity for revolutionary violence.  Fanon was an anti-colonialist and a Marxist. Luce was a child soldier who lived by Fanon’s philosophy before he came to live with the Edgars. So he had a very rough start in life.

Luce was a walking contradiction. On the one hand, he loved Independence Day, the day when we celebrate freedom in America. He was clearly benefitting by American capitalism. He had a very nice life. On the other hand, Luce just wrote about a Marxist who would love to destroy American freedom and turn America into a communist country. So for Luce, physical freedom (constitutional republic) and lack of physical freedom (communism) would be a strong triangle bottom. Bear in mind, that Luce’s perspective of freedom is very different from the triangle top that I write about. In initiation, mental freedom is the top of the triangle.

Physical reality is always the effect of our mind. So initiates didn’t fix effects. They fixed their minds by letting go (not positive thinking or affirmations), and the effects changed. When people are wired backwards, and most people are, they think that their thoughts come from whatever happened. So they remain stuck in the illusion. They’ve blocked the exit ramp.

To make matters worse, Luce’s leader violated my precision of language rule. If you want freedom, you can’t relabel ugly things like terrorism with pretty words. You have to let the ugly things go. Fanon used the term revolutionary combined with the word violence. Of course, that sounds a lot better than terrorist. However, it’s deceptive; violence is never revolutionary; it’s always primitive because it’s always win-lose, not win-win.

Luce’s paper was rooted in his African past, so it was very convincing; he knew his subject matter well.  It was grounded by his early years of life in a warzone. Ms. Wilson felt that Luce idolized Fanon, and Fanon wasn’t a good role model for him.  That was on the surface. However under the surface, Ms. Wilson was picking up the incongruence in Luce.

Incongruence is what we feel around people who are living at the triangle bottom on any subject. They’re always in two minds. It doesn’t mean they’re bad or evil; it just means that they don’t actually believe what they’re saying. They believe something else that would NOT sound good, kind, or socially correct. How can Luce be for freedom and idolize this man at the same time? He has to be in two minds to do that.

We have to step into Ms. Wilson’s shoes to understand her predicament. On the one hand, she’s black. She clearly loves Luce’s rags-to-riches story and wants him to do well. She also doesn’t want to fall prey to any black stereotypes because she’s been down that road herself. On the other hand, she’s holding pretty convincing evidence that Luce could be dangerous to the other students. She has to be responsible as a teacher. It’s odd to be in such a quandary. You wonder if you’re reading too much into the situation; but at the same time, you realize that the old adage, “it’s better to be safe than sorry,” might be the right way to go.

Ms. Wilson felt that Luce could be a potential school bomber.  So she searched his locker and found some illegal fireworks.  For her, that sealed the deal. She met with Luce’s mother, who took the fireworks home and hid them. She didn’t deal with Luce. She was in a quandary too; without letting go, we tend to end up in these rock-and-a-hard-place predicaments.

Now we have another triangle bottom. Luce’s teacher, Ms. Wilson, was on the suspicious, responsible, overly-cautious side. Luce’s mother was making excuses for Luce, and she was in denial. As you know, the two sides of any triangle bottom will play tug of war; and this was clearly demonstrated in the film. We also have a fake top of the triangle with Luce; he was by no means a True Self. But when he turned on the charm, he was definitely pretending to be a True Self. People were easily conned by his act. People are a lot like diamonds. It’s very hard to tell the difference between a real one and a fake one.

Many people today have very well-developed personas like Luce. In fact, their personas are so well-crafted that people do think they’re coming from their True Self. I call such people clone characters. They like to steal the top of the triangle from the True Self. I joke that they like to sit on their clone throne. A persona can never be a True Self; it will always be fake. The True Self comes from deep within a person’s mind. A persona/clone rests on the surface of a person’s mind. Such people won’t ever let us into their world because they have a lot to hide.

We all have such clone characters in our mind, in our life, or both. These characters want us to think that their mind is unified and true, and they want to be seen as good, loving, and kind. But under that perfect persona, they’re no such thing; clones always have long shadows that are very well hidden.

Clones work harder than a True Self to look polished. The persona becomes automatic; and that’s why people think it’s natural. A True Self is not polished; in fact, the True Self often looks more like a rough-cut diamond simply because we compare such a person to the well-polished clone. It’s easy to be confused. We are like moths to the flame…we go for the bright light even if it burns us. So we vote for clones, we go to work for clones, we study with clones, and we even love and marry clones. Then we wonder why our life isn’t making sense anymore, and we can’t seem to remember who we are.

In the Gold Circle, we work on the topic of clones a whole lot. I can only give you a taste here. People in the program are shocked by the clones that they believed in the past; they were sure that they were True Selves. So they put their beliefs into their mind. I show them the cracks. Once you know how the mind works, clones are easier to detect. They often sound good or even true, but they have divided minds. They speak a nice sounding overt message along with a harmful or unwanted covert message. They appear to shine so brightly ONLY because we’re trained to never see their darkness. Sadly, if you believe that a clone character is a True Self, you’ll see any True Self as fake or imaginary (including your own True Self).

For Luce, Frantz Fanon was still stuck in his mind. Luce idolized this man as a child, and that’s largely why he held on to the voice. If people in the film had known how to let go, they would have viewed Luce’s homework paper as a cry for help. But without letting go, it became the awakening of the beast below the beauty.

Near the end of the trailer, Luce said that people either see him as a monster or a saint. He needs to let go of both of those labels; but if he’s like most people, he’s trying to hold on to saint.

We won’t let go of a clone’s beliefs if we think that they’re telling the truth. For example, Christians have a moral clone; and they think that their moral beliefs are the truth. But those morals are just beliefs. Progressives have a politically-correct clone, and they think that saying the politically correct (PC) thing is good and right. Right and wrong, or good and evil, keep us stuck in the illusion. We escape by using true and false.

Luce was a little boy when he was in Africa. Of course, he thought that his leaders were telling him the truth. We all fall into that trap as young children.

Clones hide their shadow because they don’t like it, and they don’t realize that they can let it go. No one tells us that letting go is possible in the illusion. In this way, we’re all victims of the illusion. You can see the confusion and suffering in this film. It’s actually not that uncommon of a situation.

When people, like Ms. Wilson, expose a clone’s beliefs as false, the clone typically becomes very defensive; they hurl insults or labels at the exposer, and they tell bigger and bigger lies to cover their previous lies.  They work very hard to get everyone to believe them and to think that the truth teller is lying.

They think that they can keep their shadow under wraps by fueling their custom-made persona. So they become even more shiny. I call this, putting ice cream on manure. When the ice cream melts, the clone needs to cover the manure with more ice cream. It’s a full-time job that never ends. That’s my definition of hard work.

In psychological terms, experts would label Luce a sociopath; but that ties Luce down. It’s very hard to get free of such a label. That’s why I describe the shadow as the false self. That strips the person of a bad/evil label that could define them for life. Stripping off that label opens the possibility for Luce to exit the illusion. However, for Luce to get free, he would have to let go of his good labels and beliefs. He’d have to lose that shine, and that’s what keeps most people from letting go. The idea of losing their shine terrifies them. They fear judgment, humiliation, banishment, and loneliness. The clone’s goodness (saint) and the false self’s badness (monster) form an inner triangle bottom. We must take out both sides to get free and move to the top of the triangle.

Let’s face it, we all want Luce to become the great guy that he wants to be. But it isn’t win-win for all if he’s incongruent, manipulative, and lies to get what he wants. We all need to mentally earn what we get physically. The one constant law of the initiates was mental cause creates physical effect. That’s congruence, and it’s very rare these days.

After Ms. Wilson saw Luce’s shadow, the dynamic between her and Luce became weird.  It makes sense. It’s like she saw him mentally naked. She can’t unsee what she has seen. Luce felt exposed, and clones hate exposure. They see exposure like a vampire views light.

So Luce turned up the volume on his saintly persona; now he looked uber good.  He was helping others, buying flowers for Ms. Wilson, and apologizing for anything he’d ever done wrong without actually admitting that he did anything wrong.  He was trying to demonstrate that Ms. Wilson was lying. But she was not lying. She was basing everything she said on FACTS.

I’m not going to go through the whole story, but Luce told lie after lie; and like most clones, he was a convincing liar.  The filmmaker did a great job of allowing us to see what was going on in each character’s mind, while simultaneously hiding the obvious from the characters themselves so that they look surprised and bewildered.

Along the way, Luce raped a girl, he blew up Ms. Wilson’s desk with fireworks, and he painted hateful words on Ms. Wilson’s house.  Of course, others got blamed for what he did.

On the surface, it looked like he was reflecting Ms. Wilson; after all he was her student in a physical feminine role. She was a teacher, which is a physical masculine role. But this is why clones are so tricky. Mentally, the roles are the opposite of the physical when strong clone characters are involved in any relationship. This throws us for a loop. Luce had the mental masculine role even though physically he was in a feminine role.

Later on, we will see that Ms. Wilson was actually feeling the projection of Luce’s shadow. That’s why she knew him so well. I understand Ms. Wilson. It’s how I expose clones. Clones always project long shadows. A True Self, or even someone with false beliefs but no fake persona/clone, doesn’t project. Like real life, most of the people in this story didn’t notice the projections because Luce had such a charming personality.  

Luce’s parents kept avoiding the problem. They discussed Luce as they drank several bottles of wine each night.  Eventually, the mother was faced with a difficult choice. She must admit that her child was lying, or she must start lying herself to protect him.  She chose to lie to protect him. Of course she did that; the movie still had a long way to go. If she told the truth, the story would be over. That’s a good life lesson. When you want to end drama, tell the truth…the whole truth.

Now let’s dive into the psychology of Luce. The screenwriter was basing Luce’s character on a very popular, but false, Jesuit belief that we’re all mentally imprinted from birth to about age seven.  The reason they choose the age of seven was partly practical. Most of us are in school by age seven; so we start to use our mind to learn at that age. We start to develop an intellect. That means that we can actually think for ourselves, but we don’t because we’re placed in schools were we learn what others want us to learn.

The other reason for the age of seven is based on occult teachings. The occultists believe that our life is lived in seven-year cycles. Occultists tend to be lunar focused and matriarchal minded; so a seven-day cycle fits almost perfectly into a lunar month. Thus age seven is the end of our first seven-year cycle in the occult way of thinking. It’s all bullshit. Don’t believe it.

What they call the seven-year imprint would be part of our false self in my terminology. The Jesuits believe that you can tone down that seven-year imprint with calming things like meditation, medication, or practices like martial arts or Tai Chi; or you can cover that false self with a nice persona/clone. The Jesuits also believe that this early programming will never go away.  In other words, they want us to BELIEVE that we can’t let the imprinting go. This is the reason why religion is introduced at a young age.  They want us to hold on to religion for life so that we’ll remain stuck in their illusion. The Jesuits believed that if they can get into our mind before age seven, then they will have us for life.

Of course, I prove them wrong every day. Speaking of clones, Jesuit Pope Francis, i.e., Pope Frankenstein, is the perfect example of a clone with a long shadow. He’s been completely exposed in recent times; and probably won’t be Poping for much longer. But when he first took his clone throne, people adored him. He was so charming, just like Luce. He said and did all the right things. That’s always the signature of a clone. I took a lot of heat for saying that Pope Frank was an actor and wasn’t a good man; I’ve since been redeemed.

Readers of my blogs/programs know that any supposed imprinting is just a bunch of false beliefs that we learned to hold in our minds.  We can let go of beliefs by seeing them as false from any age or time period.  We can even let go of ancestral beliefs. Early beliefs tend to be harder to let go because we’ve often manifested evidence of those beliefs. Early beliefs are often steeped with psychological reversal. We’ve made the beliefs real, so they look true; but that just proves that we’re good at manifesting shit we don’t actually want. If you let such beliefs go, then you stop creating that unwanted reality.

In my experience, there are no beliefs that we can’t let go.  But some beliefs require more persistence and determination to let go especially if those beliefs are collectively accepted as true. Labeling a belief, “the truth,” keeps us from being able to let it go. So the Jesuits are wrong.  Their belief serves them and their desire to control our minds and lives.  Nevertheless, this movie presumes that this Jesuit belief is true.

The event advertisement for the movie said that the film was about letting go.  But that was a statement made with level confusion. I’ve learned that most people think of letting go as physical, not mental.  Initiation is, and was, only about mental letting go. The physical becomes the effect of our mind as we let go. Most people think of letting go as divorcing your spouse, running away from home, or quitting your job.  Or they think that letting go is picking a nice thought over a crappy one or avoiding a touchy subject all together. None of those things are real letting go. I didn’t see any letting go in this movie. The lack of letting go is what turned the story into a heavy drama or a psychological thriller.

Luce was killing people with African terrorists from his toddler years to age seven.  It was presumed that this propensity to kill was still there, and he could not let it go.  Psychologists would say that this killer tendency was stuck in Luce’s subconscious.  Religious people might say that it was part of his soul. Eastern-minded people would say it was part of his karma. Everybody has a reason for why Luce can’t let go. Their reasons are all false beliefs. They make my job tedious.

Luce could have let go of his killer thinking; it was simply a bunch of beliefs that were not true. He would have had to let go of everything that he learned from Fanon. Luce’s mind would have psychologically reversed to hold on to Fanon’s beliefs and to make them true for him. So he’d have to realize that Fanon’s belief came with emotion, and that emotion meant the beliefs were false. Once he could see his error, then he could slowly take back control of his mental container. Everyone can get free, but they have to want it more than air. They have to be willing to let go of everything that is false, even if they think that it has served them.

The film portrayed this terrorist aspect of Luce’s mind as who Luce really was; that’s why Ms. Wilson and others believed that he was inherently dangerous.  That’s reality in the illusion. In initiation, we’re pushed to ask a bigger question. Is that true for Luce?  Of course not.  We have to be very careful when people say that some personality trait, or mental thought pattern (like transgenderism), is who a person really is.  We’re not our beliefs or our thoughts. If such people let go of everything in their mind, they would see that they’re not those qualities; they were holding on to a persistent false belief.

Because of this belief, Luce looked progressively more dangerous as the movie rolled on.  This is how people mentally devolve over time. Their friends and family don’t help them escape this fake, mentally-created illusion because they start to expect the worst from the person.

Letting go reverses this even when we have no support from others. I’ve done it. But it requires letting go from the feminine. We have to trust our emotions to get free of such a predicament. However, most people hate their emotions; they want to get rid of them. So they stay stuck.

Ms. Wilson was telling the truth.  But people thought that Ms. Wilson was lying because Luce looked so damn good. Ms. Wilson cared for a sister who was insane, and she contributed to making Ms. Wilson look bad.  Ms. Wilson also displayed appropriate emotions. By that, I mean that when she was lied to, she let the person know that they were lying; and she was noticeably uncomfortable doing that. Exposing lies isn’t in our nature; it’s hard to do it in a calm matter. In such situations, we often trust the liar because they’re the calm one. But they are calm because they think their lies are the truth…not because they’re not lying.

Ms. Wilson was reading Luce’s shadow. She was spot on. If others could do what Ms. Wilson was doing, they would have all supported her. She was the hero of this story, not Luce and certainly not Luce’s parents.

The story seemed to be loosely based on Barack Obama’s persona.  At one point, Luce likened himself to Barack Obama; he took the words right out of my mind. Like Obama, Luce was a good looking, popular, lawyer-like athlete who came from a rough start. Both were anti-colonialists and Marxists at the core. Obama had a mentor as a young child, Frank Marshall Davis, who was similar to Fanon in some ways.

Obama had a great clone, and he was very convincing. He still acts like he never had any scandals in his White House. That just isn’t true. But his scandals were hidden by the fake news media. Clones help other clones; and you end up with webs of clones in governments and other large organizations. Such lies don’t stay hidden forever. What’s hidden will become known because more and more people are whistleblowing and exposing just like Ms. Wilson. In Obama’s story, Ms. Wilson was played by Loretta Fuddy, who knew the truth about Obama’s fake birth certificate. She died in a strange plane accident. At times, I did fear that Ms. Wilson would not make it out of this movie alive. But she did.

In the Q&A, I realized that the screenwriter, J.C. Lee, didn’t see, or he didn’t admit, that the movie was a little too familiar. I wondered if he was like Ms. Wilson, and he had picked up Obama’s shadow without realizing it. It’s easy to do. I used to do that all the time before I came to understand clones and projection. I’d hear the projected covert part of the clone’s message in my mind. I’d think that their thoughts were my thoughts. After I learned to discriminate, I realized that the beliefs/thoughts that I was hearing weren’t true. I was hearing the opposite of what the person said; so it was their shadow. It wasn’t my thought so it was easy to let go as false. I experienced this every time President Obama spoke. He always had an overt and a covert message.

I suspect that’s what the screenwriter experienced. But he thought the projected thinking was his own thinking; he was not alone. Most people don’t watch their mind all the time like I do. So J.C. thought he had a great movie idea. He said that he invented the character of Luce about five years ago…uh that was when Barack Obama was president.  Coincidence? It’s just another interesting aspect to this film. It makes it even more fascinating to me.

The screenwriter said that he believed that someone telling the truth would be a heroic act, but no one does that.  That was probably why there wasn’t much truth telling in this movie. Wow!  That’s quite an admission.

The truth is what sets us free in initiation. The clone-free person is relieved to know the truth. Fear of clones is why people accept things like political correctness or social justice warriorism. Fear of clones is why people try to fit in and refuse to think independently. It’s why they ignore their emotions around others. They’re afraid of rocking the boat. In earlier times, if you exposed the clones in power, you were burned at the stake, tortured, banished from society, or beheaded. Today, we just get our accounts removed on social media.

J.C. said that humans are liars at the core.  So Luce was normal in his mindset.  That’s just NOT true. It’s not normal to lie; it’s learned behavior. No one is a liar at the core.  The further we get from our True Self, however, the more we lie. 

J.C. said that he personally faces the type of choices that Luce, Ms. Wilson, and Luce’s parents were making all the time.  J.C. was speaking truthfully about the illusion, but that would be false for someone who can let go.

J.C. said that he’s often in a situation where he either has to tell the truth and have a hard conversation, or he must lie and have a smooth conversation.  He did admit that this was a short-sighted point of view.  I’d agree with him on that. It’s also a false point of view. He said that he picks the smooth conversation 99% of the time. So he has a strong fear of clones…most people do.

Many would call such a lie a white lie.  I despise that term.  If you want freedom, you must stop lying…ditch all that political and social correctness too.  It’s never win-win…never. When you hide what you think from others, you start hiding it from yourself too. Then you just make a mess of your mind. If you let go of your judgments and beliefs, you eventually get to the place where what you think is not offensive or judgmental.  It’s helpful and constructive. It’s win-win. At that point, you always say what you think. 

J.C. did admit that this personal issue destroyed his relationships.  Well dah!  But he said that he could not change.  That’s sad, but I understand why he felt that way. His teenage years were during the Obama era.  He thought Obama was telling the truth, so he became like him.  J.C. is Luce in many ways. He admitted that. It’s a common pattern. Someone has a trusted teacher, philosopher, leader, idol, or guru; and they don’t realize that the person they idolized was giving them more beliefs. Then they get really stuck in that person’s shadow; and they can’t see any exit from their illusion. J.C. is not alone; but he’s living in an illusory bubble. That bubble will pop one day; and he’ll have one hell of a wake-up call. It happens to everyone; and it’s a hard moment, but it is the day that the potential for freedom returns.

Telling the truth, going for win-win, even when it’s hard is what sets us free.  No one in this film got free.  There was no full-circle ending.  That’s how you know the movie was based on beliefs.  We can’t get to a happily-ever-after ending with beliefs and lies.  That’s impossible.

This film was nothing like it was presented to be, at least from my point of view.  They said that the film was about the stories that we tell about ourselves.  It was actually about the stories, secrets, and lies we make up to cover our asses or to get attention or sympathy.

Then they said the film was about beliefs we need to let go.  But no one let go of any beliefs in the film.  They just lied to cover up the effects of their beliefs.  Or they ignored their beliefs.  Saying we need to let a belief go isn’t letting go.  Luce’s world was exhausting.  He had to manage appearances all the time.  

Here’s the weird thing about this film.  I really liked it.  Everyone did.  It was a good film.  I was letting go a lot, so I left without any baggage. It looked like cool fiction to me.  But others were noticeably triggered. I never saw so many people get up and walk around during a movie.  They were flooded with emotions, so they were walking them off. Clearly they had believed clones like Luce; and that was what they were feeling. So I like that J.C. was a bit of an exposer without even knowing it.

Here’s the potential for the happy, full-circle ending. It’s in Luce’s true desire, which we hear in his speech at the beginning of the movie. Luce said that he loved Independence Day.  He said the freedom of America meant everything to him.  There was his pull to initiation.  I call that our North Star. It’s what takes us outside of the illusion.

Luce wanted freedom, but he had this horrible false self.  That’s very normal. That’s where we all are when we begin initiation. None of that was Luce’s fault; but it was his responsibility. Luce could heal his mind. I know that. J.C. could too. Barack Obama could too. We all start out wanting freedom but not having it. At some point, if we don’t turn toward freedom, we develop apathy; then we just exist until we die.

Luce thought he could get freedom by creating a pleasing clone. That’s pretty normal too. Luce certainly wasn’t the first to think that.  Sadly, most experts believe that lie.  Too often people think that they can’t be themselves. They believe that they can’t have their true desires. They can, but they have to let go to get them.

As initiation takes us closer and closer to the core of our mind, we actually stop creating false desires (good and bad ones); it’s then that we start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We start remembering who we are and what we’ve always wanted from life; our life starts to make sense again. The world around us also starts to make sense. Clones look like clones, and the illusion looks like an illusion. Beliefs sound like beliefs. That’s mental 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.

I Don’t Know What I (They) Believe?

BELIEFS

By Cathy Eck

 

What Do I Believe?

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

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

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

 

Who’s Creating Our Life?

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

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

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

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

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

 

Why Did I Say That?

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

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

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

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

 

Fake Gratitude

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

Dealing with Fragile Egos as Characters

fragile ego

By Cathy Eck

 

Fragile Egos

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Wall

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

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

 

They’re Characters

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

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

 

An Exercise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Letting Go of Dreams, Visions, Nightmares, and Even Memories

Using Dreams to Let Go

By Cathy Eck

 

I’d recommend reading my earlier article on Dreams and Nightmares first.

 

Dreams, Visions, Nightmares, and Memories

In this post, I’ll walk you through a short example of finding the causal beliefs within your dreams, visions, nightmares, and memories.  The example I’m using was a clear vision that I had about twenty years ago during a reflexology session.  During that time, I was lost, depressed, my body ached all the time, and I was always exhausted — common symptoms for being trapped in another person’s illusion.  I feared going to a doctor, so I went to healers.  I needed and wanted someone to tell me how to let go.  But I wasn’t finding anyone.

As the reflexologist pushed on my feet, I suddenly smelled something like sulfur.  It was so strong that my eyes watered.  I mentioned this to the reflexologist, and she said, “It must be a message for you.  I don’t smell anything.”  Then she said, “I’m pushing on your heart area now…might be something about love.”  She told me to relax and see what popped into my mind, which was good advice.

I saw a young girl standing before a Nazi guard.  The girl was wearing a cute, ruffled blue dress and patent leather shoes.  Since my mom dressed me that way, I immediately identified with that character.

She was being led to the gas chamber.  That was the smell.   The little girl looked at the guard.  She smiled at him and said, “I still love you.”  I felt such peace and softness in my body; I felt unconditional love for this guard.  The guard pushed her into the gas chamber, and she died.  I was crying at this point — kind of wallowing in my sadness and victimhood.

She said I was releasing a past life, but I knew that I wasn’t letting go; I could see that my mind had already started to make conclusions about this vision like love isn’t enough.  I could see that we both wanted to turn my vision into a reason why I was powerless to change my life.  I was trying so hard to not allow that to happen.  I kept searching for a way to free myself from the vision.  But I didn’t know how to do that for many years.

 

The Cure

This vision was produced from my mind based on where I was at that time.  I eventually realized that the causal belief was that unconditional love was worthless currency on earth — it was not enough to make things right.  That was truly how I felt about my life.

Looking from the eyes of the guard, I could see another huge causal belief.  We have to obey authority — to do as we’re told.  Then I flipped back to the character of the girl.  I truly believed that authority was much more powerful than love.  Of course, these are common beliefs in the illusion — beliefs we all need to let go to be free.

After I discovered how to let go of beliefs, I could see that the belief, “Love is not enough” isn’t true.  I could see that the belief, authority has more power than love” was also a lie.  I could see that the whole damn vision was the product of my beliefs.  Do you see why it’s not helpful to call it a past life?  We don’t need to make it true.  Our past experiences are just the effect of the beliefs we held in mind at that time; they might be real, but they aren’t true.  When we live from truth, we won’t need to let go of beliefs anymore.

The vision showed me where my mind was at that time.  It showed me the beliefs that kept me trapped in an illusion.  To get free, I didn’t need to analyze the details or interpret symbols; it was all very straight forward.

Was I once this child killed in a Nazi concentration camp?  Who knows?  What’s key in that vision are the beliefs that would have caused me to be in such a situation.  After clearing those beliefs, I allowed the vision to replay from my current mental state.  I saw the girl look at the guard and say her words of love.  I felt the same purity.  He looked at her with a scowl and told her to go to the side of the gas chamber and wait for him.  He was still an obedient authority, but it didn’t matter.  I didn’t need to morph him into a saint.  She had the power because she had the real love.  I’d finally seen this vision from the perspective of the True Self.

Let me emphasize…I didn’t put love or positive thinking on top of my erroneous beliefs.  I simply let the beliefs go… they’re false.  The vision no longer bothered me; it existed like a dream…the illusion that it was.

 

Reasons

The reflexologist helped me focus on my body; she triggered the place where the belief was stored.   But her helpfulness ended when she saw the vision as a reason for the way things were.  People often feel satisfied when they find the reason.  Sadly, most people don’t realize they can let go.  They sing “Let It Go” but don’t know how.  We can’t help another let go of their beliefs until we let go ourselves.

When we take any memory, vision, nightmare, or dream and see the causal beliefs that created it, notice our emotional feedback, and let those beliefs go completely, we experience something amazing — freedom.  The scene changes; we learn that without those beliefs, we could never have had those dreams, nor could we experience such a reality.  I find that amazing.  As we clean up our memories and nightmares in this way, we start to see a different world.  We feel safe without needing everyone else to behave or let go.  We realize that other people’s illusions would only affect their life if we didn’t believe them.

Working with Our Dreams and Nightmares

Dreams tell us where we are going

By Cathy Eck

 

Dreams

Dreams can be a powerful tool; they help us find causal beliefs.  But we must use our dreams in a productive way.  People generally view dreams as symbolic.  They interpret them and look for meaning in the activities, events, or items in the dream.  That can be fun; but it doesn’t help us move toward freedom.

Dreams are an unthreatening bridge that can show us what to let go from our false physically oriented interpretation of reality in order to get to our True mentally oriented perspective.  Dreams are powerful because we know we created them.  Dreams come out of our OWN mind.  We can’t blame anyone else for our dreams.  That’s key.  If we have dreams about killing, we still have an aspect of our false self that wants to kill someone or fears being killed.  If we have a demon in our dream, guess what we hold in our mind?

People make the mistake of only identifying with the main character in their dreams.  We created our dreams; so we’re the writer, the direction, and all the characters.  There’s enormous power in realizing that we invented all those characters whether we like them or not.  It’s hard to get to that level of honesty in the waking state.

If we wrote a screenplay or novel, we’d know what each character was going to say and do.  That’s how we write our dreams without effort.  For a person to write a story about stealing, they have to hold stealing in mind.  They can’t write about a bank robbery while thinking about pansies.  If we let our beliefs around such criminal behavior go after discovering them in our dreams, we don’t have to experience such things in real life.

 

How to Let Go Using Dreams?

Let’s say that you dream that you’re a student in school.  First work on yourself by asking questions.  Why am I in school?  Do I like being a student?  How do I feel about learning?  What am I learning?  Do I like it?  Get honest and speak your mind as that character.  If something you believe as that character feels bad (has emotion as you think it) let it go.  It’s a false belief.  Our false self adds drama, opposition, and bad tasting spices to our dreams and experiences.  It usually turns them from perfect, heavenly experiences into hellish nightmares.

Let’s say that you and another student got in trouble in the dream.  You’re also the other student.  Step into their character and ask yourself questions about you, the teacher, and school.  How do each of you feel about getting caught?  Why did you get caught?  What outcome do you fear as a result?  What were you thinking before and after you got caught?  These are thoughts that should have emotion — beliefs to let go as false.

Caution!  Don’t allow the answers to your questions to become reasons for why your life is the way it is.  We aren’t looking for interpretation; we’re looking for causal beliefs to let go.

You’re also the teacher in the dream.  Are you angry that students weren’t listening to you?  Do you dislike these students, judge them?  Do you like your job, hate your job?  Why?  Use your answers to find beliefs to let go.

Each character plays a role.  The teacher represents the masculine role; the students are in feminine roles.  You’ll see beliefs from both aspects of your mind in these characters.  As you step into each character, behave as if you want to let go and know how to let go.  Clean up the entire scene.

What you should discover is that without the beliefs that you held in mind before the dream, you couldn’t have had that exact dream.  That’s a valuable lesson.  The same is true of life.

Some therapists go batshit crazy and advise people to pretend they’re the desk or chair.  That’s generally not worth our time.  You might have beliefs about furniture, but furniture doesn’t have beliefs about you.

 

What you Learn

Ideally, we want to live our own True story as the writer, director, and main character.  Everyone else in our life plays a supporting character; we’re also supporting characters for them.  We want to have symbiotic, not codependent, competitive, or opposing relationships with others.

If we perceive that a story character is dominating us or has an intention to harm us in our dream, we’ll feel as if they’re writing our dream (or nightmare).  We’ve given them or someone like them the masculine leadership role for our life.  We probably feel we have to please this character so they’ll let us have what we want.  Their rules for life represent the rules we believe we must live by; they’re our false God who rewards and punishes us.

This was the original end goal of selling religious stories as the truth.  They were originally someone’s personal story.  But they wanted their story to be the story.  They wanted to rule the world instead of just being the king of their life.  Even today, you see new religions and new spiritual teachings being born; they always have a story that makes those teachings or that teacher the ONE.  People often claim to be called or special so that they can mute your story and replace it with their story.  If you follow their practices or their protocol, you’ll get to be a minion in their kingdom — a walk on character that fulfills their dreams.  You’ll NEVER get to live your life.

As you let go of beliefs, you do become the main character in your story living the script that you’ve written.  You’re day and night dreams will improve.  If you want to be completely free, your story must be win-win for everyone.  No one would be your minion, prisoner, or slave.  They’ll simply be other creators who stopped by to temporarily co-create with you and play a character in your story because it’s fun.

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.

God’s Slave and Religious Extremism Exposed

God's Slave

By Cathy Eck

 

God’s Slave

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

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

 

Hate and Fear

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

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

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

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

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

 

Religious Extremism

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

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

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

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

 

Life as a Movie

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

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

Being Truly Good by Eliminating Good and Evil

Good vs. Good and Evil

By Cathy Eck

 

Illusion Confusion

Good and evil rests at the core of the illusion.  Often it takes on a different form, like positive and negative; but ultimately, judging another as negative means that we’re seeing negativity as evil.  Good and evil was the way humans gave God an opponent to battle.  God originally represented our perfect True Self; therefore, the opponent of God is our OWN false self projected out into the world.  The final battle isn’t in the outer world.  It’s in our mind.  It’s initiation.

The confusion around good and evil causes so many problems.  People genuinely want to be good.  They really do.  There’s a reason for that; they were born good, and some part of their mind remembers their True Self.  We arrive with no opponent.  Good’s opposite arises when we accept another person’s notion of good — their rules or morals.  Rules tell us how to be good according to an outer system.  Rules deny the innate goodness of people.  That’s why most of my readers hate them.  Once we accept that being good is following outer rules even if they sound like the truth, we also now hold within the possibility of evil or badness if we disobey those outer rules.

We also have experts giving us rules for how to be healthy, how to be spiritual, how to be social, and how to be successful.  The result is that health, spirituality, social acceptance, and success have gotten harder — not easier.  We live in a bubble of experts determined to keep our natural wisdom and truth under wraps.  And often our truth is screaming in our mind, but we feel paralyzed if we try to speak it.  We’re so well trained to look outside for answers.

 

Fear of Judgment

When I first saw the illusion within myself, I felt like a backed-up sewage system.  I was no longer passing on my beliefs to others because I knew they were false.  But others didn’t stop demanding my obedience to their beliefs and rules.  This created a long and grueling awkward phase.  I couldn’t figure out how to escape this prison.

I could no longer obey their rules because I knew were false and limiting.  But disobedience resulted in judgment.  I hated being judged by those who still thought their rules were valid and good.  My discrimination felt worthless in a world where no one else was discriminating.  In fact, it seemed that my discrimination just got me into trouble with nearly everyone.

As we move toward freedom, we meet the same or similar experiences and feel the same emotions we felt and did not let go earlier in life.  We are slowly releasing beliefs.  The illusion shrinks each time we succeed in letting go until nothing is left.

Our fear of judgment probably came from the ancient act of cursing.  In earlier times, people believed that another person’s words or evil eye could take them down.  We all have a deep fear of other humans within us, especially if they are envious or angry.  The winners of the illusion play on this.  When we’re afraid, we’re easily controlled.

Many people adopt another belief like, “I don’t care what they think of me.”  Some work on their reputation and create a great looking mask.  Signs and symbols came out of the fear of expression, not truth.  We all have fear of beliefs and believers, which ultimately results from the foundation belief that the truth is less powerful than a belief system.  We think our love and truth is not enough in this world to keep us safe.  But if you let go enough, you’ll see that’s not true.

This all got worse with the positive thinking movement.  People said that words had power; and that’s true.  But most people’s words are not empowering; this only resurrected our fear of people, especially believers.

 

Psychological Reversal Again

The issue always comes back to the basic psychological reversal around emotions.  When people are sucked into the illusion, they think that something that feels bad IS true.  In the illusion, war, disease, poverty, and evil are all considered true and unavoidable — yet they all feel horrible.

When a resident of the illusion judges us, and it does feel bad to them, they don’t reject the thought; they act on it.  They want us to change, and often we do.  If we can’t beat them, we’ll join them.

I first came to understand this with my own children.  I’d notice something in them that I didn’t like — it looked very real AND I felt emotion.  If I mentioned it to them, they had no clue what I was talking about.  So I’d take responsibility and just let it go.  After awhile, I realized that I was seeing my own fears projected on them.  I let go from the masculine role until the problem I saw disappeared — it always did.  I did not make them responsible for my emotions.  Then I could see their perfection.

This is the sticking point of the illusion that traps us all.  Others think we’re causing their emotions with our disobedience.  They try to get their emotions to stop by changing their projection.  It doesn’t work EVER!  The projection isn’t the cause.

Now I understand what people were doing to me.  Being our True Self forces other people’s beliefs to surface; when this happens the false self goes into blame mode.  I used the feminine method of letting go in myself until I realized that they’re false thinking has no power to harm me.  If I stay in truth, and don’t judge them back, they back off.  In truth, beliefs only affect believers.  But rebelling against believers gets us stuck in their illusion.

Eventually, the concept of good and evil dies a natural death.  There’s no apocalypse, no buildings collapse — nothing physical needs to change.  The illusion was just a perspective.  Good and evil disappear; only true good remains as it was in the beginning.

 

 

 

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.

Time: Good or Evil

Right place and right time

By Cathy Eck

 

Time — Hijacked by the Illusion

I’ve known people who stopped wearing watches because they hated time but then drove everyone crazy by constantly asking for the time.  Their behavior created the appearance of freedom; but it’s actually harder to ask someone for the time than to just look at our watch.  Some rebel against time by showing up when they want.  Those of us who aren’t rebelling against the clock, waste our time waiting for them.  People like to make time the bad guy when it’s really our beliefs about time that are the problem.

Many teachers talk about transcending time.  They’re usually the same ones that like to float above their reality.  I once got an email from someone wanting to know if I could help him time travel so he could be with his lost lover again.  People try to outsmart or manipulate time because they view it as a prison.  Time is a constraint; but it doesn’t have to limit our freedom if we keep it in the realm of first-cause creation.

Nature shows us first-cause time.  Day and night and the seasons are natural, but equal, constraints.  If we’re in tune with the earth, we’ll know when to plant or harvest.  We’ll find our rhythm in the earth’s cycle. If we synchronize with Mother Earth’s clock, we won’t be near the ocean when the tsunami arrives.  You see this with animals.  No one needs to give a beluga whale, a grey squirrel, or a red robin a calendar or a warning signal.  But humans have something that animals don’t…false minds.  Our false minds destroy our natural connection to the planet.  In fact, our false mind tells us that it will keep us safe when it actually put us in danger.

A long time ago, we fell; and our prize was a brand spanking new false self/mind.  Our seeming fall could have been a graceful trip down the river to a more creative material world.  We simply gained a cool conscious outer perspective.  We could now divide our thoughts into opposites, musical notes, and colors.  We could hold memories and ideas in mind and manifest them in the material world.  This was the coolest thing ever invented.  We each had a mind of our own.  We were all capable of first-cause creation — created mentally in the image and likeness of the Creator.  Time and space were just part of our tool box.  They made life interesting.

Time and space created different points of view depending on our location.  Stories were extracted out of the night sky; and different people saw different animals, superheroes, Gods, and Goddesses.  This became astrology, which is a function of the location and time that we’re born.

 

Second-Cause Creation

Second-cause creation made story more interesting with drama and judgment.  Some personality qualities were good and some were bad.  Some actions were good and some bad.  Some people had good astrological charts and some had charts that sucked.  We also added the elements of authority, roles, and evil.  Controlling space and time was now used to gain power over others.

Second-cause creation utilized history (his story) where time and events became very specific and intricately linked.  We were told to memorialize dates from the past.  We couldn’t just naturally let go of the past anymore.  We were told when to work and when to play.  And since we held on to the past, the past kept repeating.  Our future was now driven by what we held in mind — our memories and rigid beliefs.

We were seduced into giving up our independent notion of time because we were given planned gatherings, festivals, holy days, and holidays.  Those were our rewards.  Such fun times were used for the same purpose that a rapist grooms his future victim.  The victim loves the candy and attention, but doesn’t realize that the excitement they feel means that something bad is coming.  The non-holidays came to feel like punishment because that’s when we had to do the hard work.

Ancient astrologers/astronomers were called Wise Men.  They worked for the royals; they could read the stars.  They decided who would rise to power and who would be a slave.  They wrote the stories of the illusion.  They said that the stars determined our fate, not our thoughts.  We were no longer the creator of our life.  We now had a role in a grand story that we were told God wrote, when it was really written by the Wise Men.

Religions created calendars to synchronize people.  Controlling time helped to control people.

 

Returning to First Cause

Rebelling and throwing out calendars and clocks isn’t the answer.  We simply have to get back to first-cause thinking about the calendar — use it for convenience and coordination.  It’s a tool, not a God to worship.  We have to recognize that our mind creates our life, not our star signs or “the man.”  A calendar can give us a useful construct, but the date on the calendar should not tell us what to do, what to say, or how to be.  We are free when we do what we’re inspired to do everyday.

Breaking free of the traditions, rituals, and organized events of the illusion can be quite a challenge.  We can look like a real party pooper if we don’t do the inner work first.  In my experience, as my mind returned to first-cause regarding the calendar, people just worked in harmony with me.  I didn’t have to make a grand statement that time was evil.  Coordinating became pretty natural.  I didn’t have to fight the calendar to the death.  I just started living as if every day was a holiday.

We only need to remove our beliefs about time from our mind.  Then time serves us instead of us serving time.  Prisoners are said to serve time; and when we live in the illusion, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

The Game: Falling In and Digging Ourselves Back Out

Game

By Cathy Eck

 

Tricks and Traps in The Game

You just dug yourself out of a big false self trap after feeling emotions and listening to your false repeat crappy beliefs and criticism for days.  Now you’re sailing again.  You feel like your True SELF.

Then suddenly, you feel that all too familiar confusion.  You feel emotion in your body again, maybe even panic or pain.  Your mind is looking for reasons.  Ah shit!  You thought you’d finally made it out, and now you’re right back in the poop soup again.

I know it sucks.  But in this moment, it won’t do any good to get frustrated, impatient, or angry.  You just fell in to the illusion again, and you have to dig yourself out.  There are seemingly endless tricks and traps on the way out of the illusion.  You will meet and defeat them all.  That’s initiation!

The True Self is patient.  It’s immortal.  Today, tomorrow, next year, next life…it’s all the same.

But try as I do to get people to just let go and get back to their True Self, they always want reasons for the big question: “Why did this happened to me?”  Reasons take us outward; freedom requires going inward.  However, giving our mind a logical reason can sometimes help forward movement.  Letting go of the reasons you hear in your mind (like God is punishing you) always helps.  Here are a few useful reasons that will keep you in the game.

 

Reasons The False Trapped Your Ass Again

1) You just accepted a feminine role to a false masculine, and that person caused you to accept their beliefs.

2) You heard someone say something that sounded good, true, or positive (like a teacher, guru, preacher), and you accepted their positive statement without noticing the emotion that came with it.  We’re trained to be in our mind, to be good students that take in what the teacher says without discriminating, and so we miss the invaluable signals our body senses give us.  Besides, when we get truth from another, it’s no longer truth; it’s knowledge.  Let other people’s truth go and find your own truth.

3) Your false self felt sympathy for another instead of compassion.

4) You just got competitive and choose sides or needed to win.  Freedom is an individual game.

5)  You presumed another couldn’t meet you at the True Self level, and so you became something acceptable to them.  You united with the lowest common denominator — the one with the most rigid beliefs.

6)  You feared the judgment or punishment of another.  So you did what they told you to do.

7)  You looked for a reward or looked to see if a problem went away yet.  If you have to look for results or rewards, you aren’t trusting your True Self yet.  Keep letting go.

8)  You didn’t trust your quiet inspiration.  Instead you followed expertise, social norms, or knowledge.

9)  Your mind is saying, “Who are you to do this?”  “This is too hard.”  “Cathy is a dumb fuck with a big imagination.” “Cathy wants you to accept her belief system.”  or “Emotions are bad; I don’t want to feel them.”  I offer you one belief that you need to get free:  “You can let all beliefs go.  You don’t need them.”  Everything I write supports that one belief because you need it to get free.  When you’re free, you’ll drop that ONE belief because you won’t need it, and I won’t look like a dumb fuck with a big imagination anymore.

10)  You saw someone else’s reality and thought, “This could happen to me.”  You must remain an impartial voyeur of other people’s lives.  If what they’re living brings up emotion, let go of your belief in that potential.  Their beliefs are creating their reality.  This is easier after you take responsibility for your own mind; you see that everything has a mental cause.

11)  Someone said you hurt them or didn’t support them; and you believed them.  Only the false self can be hurt; and only the false self needs support.  If you need others to support you, you’re listening to your false self.  Enjoy supporters if they come, but don’t need them.  Let them go.

12)  You have direction confusion.  You read this blog because you want freedom — you want to be your True Self and live from win-win.  It feels good when you think toward freedom and bad when you imprison yourself with beliefs.  But a religious person wants to be good according to dogma.  They feel good when obedient and bad when they disobey.  Someone who wants to win will feel great when they win and like shit when they lose.  We set the direction for our mind.  We don’t have the right to set the direction for other’s minds.  And they don’t have the right to set the direction for our mind.

13)  You followed excitement or emotions outward instead of inward — such as following romance, hope, or lust!

14)  You’re trying to figure out someone else’s mind instead of discriminating in your own.  Their mind is their problem.  Your mind is your problem.

 

It’s a Game

The collective illusion has gotten very tricky, especially since the addition of self-help and the New Age.  Knowing the tricks makes it easier to win the game.

See your quest for freedom as a giant video game.  You beat one level, and then you have to confront a more difficult level.  At some point, you win the game; or you die.  So what, you just start a new game.  If you watch people play video games, this is their attitude.  They feel good playing because that’s the attitude of our True Self.  Life is a game — an individual sport.  We enter into this big dangerous arena filled with beliefs (lies), and some of us figure out how to discriminate and beat the game. The prize is freedom, living as our True Self, and fulfillment of our desires (without anyone else having to lose).  It’s a great game — worth playing.

Discipline — Time To Say Goodbye!

DisciplineBy Cathy Eck

 

I Got OWNED

Recently, I had the OWN (Oprah) channel on while doing some housework.  The producers set up a help desk where people could ask questions of “spiritual” advisors.  Three times, the experts recommended “discipline.”  They said it was necessary for success.  The first two times, I simply noticed that their comment felt bad and immediately let it go.  But the third time, expert Carolyn Myss put me over the edge.  I realized that I was looking in the face of a huge collective psychological reversal.

An overweight woman (by expert standards) asked Carolyn for help.  Carolyn said, “Do you tend to gravitate toward pleasure?”  The woman said, “Yes,” as she smiled.  Carolyn responded critically, “That’s your problem.  You have no discipline.”  The woman looked like she wanted to slit her wrists or shit her pants.  “Okay, now you pissed me off, Carolyn Myss,”  I thought.   I decided to really look at this word, discipline.  My emotions were screaming, “False.”

 

Discipline

The “New Oxford American Dictionary” put things in perspective for me very quickly.  Here’s what it said:

1) the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior, using punishment to correct disobedience.
2) the controlled behavior resulting from discipline.
3) activity or experience that provides mental or physical training.
4) a system of rules of conduct.

Discipline is clearly unnatural; it involves training humans, like animals, to do what an authority or expert wants them to do.  It’s key to a society based on good and evil, right and wrong, or win and lose.

Since the disciplinarians are already in the illusion, or they wouldn’t be using discipline, discipline is inflicted on those in powerless feminine roles, like children.  Our minds record the voices of those who provide discipline until we acquire self-discipline, meaning we inflict reward and punishment on ourselves.

Oddly, the word discipline is very similar to disciple, another highly feminine role.  Well, that made sense.  Carolyn Myss is a recovering Catholic; her Catholicism often bleeds through in her books and teachings.  The other two men who suggested discipline were M. Scott Peck, spiritual psychologist/author, and DeVon Franklin, Hollywood wanna-be preacher.  Discipline and religion are clearly interconnected; both take us toward hell while claiming to take us to heaven.

The truth is that if we’re disciplining ourselves or others, we’re not good, we’re false.  Discipline is following someone else’s rules that don’t feel good and don’t make sense to us.  We should never have to do that in a sane world.  If we’re obeying rules that don’t feel good and telling others to do the same, we’re clearly playing a false masculine role.  We shouldn’t be leading anyone, not even ourselves.

In the TRUE masculine role, we do what we’re inspired to do.  We provide a vision — not rules.  The True Masculine has no desire to discipline others; there’s no need for it.  You trust the people that you create with.  Discipline isn’t even a word I’ve ever needed to have in my vocabulary.

When led by false masculine authorities, we have to muster up unnatural energy to do what they want us to do in the way they want it done.  We become exhausted and depressed.  We hate life.  Then we discipline those below us (like our kids) because we’re starving for energy and life force.

 

Discipline or Abuse?

Just last week, someone posted on Facebook a comment about the lack of discipline in kids and how it’s because parents no longer spank.  Of course, I couldn’t shut up because children were involved.  So I wrote, “People will stop disciplining their children with physical punishment when they call it what it really is, child abuse.”  You see, calling authoritarian bullying, unnecessary rules, enslavement, and physical punishment “discipline” makes the unacceptable acceptable.

Discipline produces slaves and obedient citizens, not successful or creative people.  It’s a winning formula in the illusion.  It has worked for thousands of years because we don’t stop and examine the reality or the real effects of discipline.

 

Pleasure

Carolyn Myss exposed the whole illusion around discipline when she said, “Do you tend to gravitate toward pleasure?”  That’s when my emotions screamed, “Stop the madness. Your are Myss-taken.”  She was saying, “If it’s pleasurable, it’s bad for you.”  The idea that we’re supposed to be happy while we suffer is the Catholic mantra; it’s not true.  We all naturally gravitate toward pleasure until we’re brainwashed to gravitate toward pain by following beliefs that generate emotions.

We’re all born to people who were already cooked to well done in the illusory oven before we arrived.  If we could talk, we would have screamed, “Stop!  That doesn’t feel right.  I didn’t come to earth to see how well I could suffer.”  Instead we got disciplined to become like our caretakers and authorities until eventually we couldn’t see the error in the illusion — it looked normal.

It’s not too late.  We can let go of needing discipline right now.  We can start to follow our inspiration at any time.

Carolyn Myss answered the woman’s question, but it’s doubtful that it helped.  She gave her the cause of her weight problem.  This woman thought she didn’t have enough discipline when she actually had too much.  Her inner food police disciplines her constantly, piling guilt and shame on her food and reminding her that she’s not following the diet and exercise rules for a thin body.  She believes the rich and successful (and disciplined) experts even though what they say feels horrible; her True Self knows the advice is false — it’s fixing the effect.

To get free, this woman needs to let go of trusting experts who keep telling her to be more disciplined so she can look the way they say she should look.  She needs to stop dieting (which has the word die in it for a reason) and start living from her own True Self.

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.
