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.

The Three Steps

There are the three Steps to mental and emotional freedom

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

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

The Objective

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

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

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

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

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

Physical to Mental

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s Begin

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

Step One

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

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

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

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

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

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

Step Two

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Step 2.5 

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

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

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

Step Three 

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

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

Summary

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

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

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.

 

 

 

How Do You Know If Someone is Their True Self or False Self?

True Self doesn't wear a mask.

By Cathy Eck

 

True Self Please Stand Up

In order to get free and enjoy life on earth, we must know a True Self from a false self.  It’s hard because there are many damn good clones out there.  You can take drugs, have an insight during visualization, or go through a near death experience and gain a glimpse of the truth.  Such experiences shut down our intellect.  We go beyond the construct of space and time.

But space and time aren’t the problem.  When the intellect is used correctly by the True Self; it becomes the perfect masculine — the ultimate leader and visionary.  When the false self uses the intellect, it stuffs it with knowledge, beliefs, and rules.  Then we can’t access our truth because our mental computer is a cluttered mess with badly labeled files and lots of viruses.

The real point of everything I share is to master our own mind so that we’re always discriminating.  In this way, we don’t take in files that are infected with viruses.  Our mind contains the perfect virus protection software, which keeps us living our OWN life within an imperfect world that values knowledge over wisdom.  That’s freedom.

 

Clues

Everyone is trying to get our support for their illusory world.  Our job is to not accept the role they want to cast us in.

Experts and authorities thought they were giving us the truth, and we believed them.  So how do we know who to believe?  How do we know what to let go?

The answer is right within the word believe!  Permanent lies that kind of explain things that we don’t understand aren’t necessary.  As we let go, we come to understand everything.  Until you get there, here are a few reminders!

 

1)  You can’t let go of the truth.  If you let go of everything that everyone ever said to you, you couldn’t go wrong.  You won’t go back to being a helpless baby.  That was a condition of size, not wisdom.  Babies are very wise. They get stupider as they grow up.

2)  Is the teacher/authority asking you to accept beliefs to fit into their world view?  There are many teachers who say, “I need you to wipe your slate clean,” but then they write all over it with their beliefs.  In this work, we wipe our slates clean and never allow another to write on it again without our conscious permission.  I never want you to believe something I say either, other than “You can let go.”  I explain the way the illusion is constructed only so that you might be more savvy about discriminating and not just believe everything you hear.  Eventually, when your discrimination is working again, you can let go of the knowledge I provided about the illusion.  You won’t need it anymore.  It will be the last file you delete.

3)  Do they think they have the truth and no one else does?   Everyone has the truth inside of them.  Most of us have forgotten that.  Experts think they have the truth when they have knowledge or beliefs.  They think they have something that no one else knows; they believe that makes them special.  Special and false are the same.  Knowledge and beliefs always have limits.  Just take them to the extreme to find them.  You can find the answer to anything on your own.

4)  Can they laugh at their beliefs or traditions?  If we can’t laugh at the things our false self says; it’s because we believe them.

5)  Do they want support, submission, or commitment?  You don’t have to shrink to fit into a True Self’s world.  The True Self doesn’t need to create a secure future with you.  False selves fear the future, and they want long-term commitments and certainty.  They want you to sign on the dotted line that you will never, ever change your mind and let them go.

6)  Are they trying to fix or change the illusion or float above it?  Most people in the west want to change the illusion to suit their personal tastes.  In the east, they leave it there but float above it in denial.  Neither eliminates the illusion, which is the only way to have real freedom.  Our false self can separate us from things we don’t like mentally.  But freedom only comes when we recognize that the things we don’t like are false.  They only affect our body and life if we believe them.

7)  Are they teaching you a quality that you already possess (but forgot)?  If they’re teaching you to be good, spiritual, peaceful, non-judgmental, loving, positive, or to know the truth, then you don’t need them.  They need to fix themselves.  People in the illusion all fix themselves by fixing others — nothing changes.  If we think we’ve lost our spirit, we’ll go hunting for it.  But we won’t find it.  We’ll take part of our false self and teach it to be spiritual.  We’ll create a better mask — a clone self.  When we let go, we remember that we’re all the things that religious and spiritual teachers are training our false self to be.

8)  The false self fixes one thing at the expense of another.  A person goes to a doctor or healer and gets a drug or treatment that fixes one thing but now gives them a different problem.  My son’s friend used to joke about Feng Shui.  He called it the “art of moving shit around.”  Everyone in the illusion is a Feng Shui practitioner.  They don’t fix shit, they move it around.  Old problems transform into new problems because no one ever removes the cause.  They’re just fixing effects.

That’s a start.  Everything in the illusion is backwards from the truth; but the illusion is not the opposite of Truth.  Chew on that one for a while.  The illusion is only a man-made invention; it’s completely false and has no power of its own.  It’s destructible.  When we let it go, the truth is what remains.

 

The Act of Letting Go: How is it Done?

Letting go

By Cathy Eck

 

Letting Go Isn’t a “How To” Process

You’d think after over two hundred blog posts, I’d have written about how to let go; but I never have.  I’ve discussed the topic in countless ways, but I’ve never addressed it directly.  There’s a reason for that.  Letting go isn’t something that can be explained in a “how to” fashion.  There is no “Letting Go for Dummies.

“How to” comes from our false mind — it comes from knowledge, reasoning, and wanting answers — which just creates more beliefs and illusion.  Letting go happens automatically when we realize that what we hold in mind is false.

Letting go is the result of discrimination.  Consequently, what I talk about most on this blog is discrimination — how to differentiate between truth and falsehood.  Letting go is the effect of realizing that your causal beliefs are false.

 

A Metaphor

Imagine that you want to go to the beach.  You ask a friend for directions and follow them carefully.  But when you arrive at the end of the directions, there’s no beach. You could go back to the starting point, but you’ve driven a long way.  You don’t even know if you’re closer to the beach than when you started.

Suddenly, you spot a guy in swimming trunks with a surfboard.  That’s a good sign; he looks like someone who would be a reliable source for beach directions.  He gives you directions, and you get back into your vehicle.

Now you have a choice.  You can follow the new directions and get to the beach, or you can hold on to the old directions and stay put.  Of course, the choice is easy.  You trash the old directions, and you drive to the beach.  How did you trash those old directions?  You simply let them go because you realized that they were false.  You discriminated.  You didn’t need a “how to” book to do so.

 

Beliefs are Temporary Truth

Beliefs were designed to be temporary just like directions to the beach.  Our beliefs cause our actions.  When the desired action is complete, we let the causal beliefs go.  You don’t think about letting go or try to let go.  You just let the beliefs go.

The reason that it’s so hard to let go of some thoughts or beliefs is that you’ve labeled them in your mind as useful, true, or right.  You think you’ll need them in the future.  Sometimes an authority has scared, guilted, or shamed you into keeping them in your mind as rules.

As human minds became more logically oriented, we learned how to memorize; people began holding on to beliefs.  They even created belief systems.  They relabeled beliefs as truth.  If you replace your True Self with a belief system, you create a false leader or God within your mind.  Your True Self then becomes the enemy of that false leader.

You can hang out in someone else’s illusion for a while, just like an actor plays a character.  But in time, your True Self will want to fulfill its divine plan.  An inner Armageddon starts to occur.   You begin to seek the truth.  You find many people who will gladly give you their version of truth — usually more beliefs.  Most people put even more belief systems in their mind before they realize that the right path is the path of their own True Self.

But where has their True Self gone?  Did they lose it?  No, they didn’t lose it.  They covered it up with beliefs.  They must dig it out by letting go of all the false beliefs they now hold in their mind as true.  It’s not a small job.

 

You Have Free Will

If you accept another person’s or group’s illusion as your truth, your emotions become psychologically reversed to honor their belief system.  You live for others, not your True Self.  Religious, cultural, and social beliefs are sticky because our mind tells us that they must be right because so many people believe them.  But most people are completely lost — trained from birth by authorities who are already grounded in the illusion.

Once you decide that you want to return to your True Self’s path, your emotions show you the way.  When you think something True, you feel calm.  When a belief arises, you feel emotion.  Since you’ve accepted lots of beliefs, you often feel like you’re going to burst with emotion.  All of your old beliefs arise trying to pull you back.  Your false mind says, “What about honoring your mother and father?”  “You’ll go to hell if you don’t obey the priest.”  “You must serve or sacrifice to be good.”  “You are becoming selfish.”  “You won’t be special anymore.”

Your change in direction has made the old belief systems obsolete.  But you have always obeyed them in the past.  What once felt good, now feels terrible.  This causes great confusion.  You must slow down your mind and discriminate.  You must let go of the beliefs that no longer feel good.  If you don’t let go, you stay stuck (like holding on to the old directions to the beach).

 

Letting Go Can’t Be Forced 

Letting go happens when you realize the old beliefs were false — when you discriminate.  Now you feel emotion that you didn’t feel before; there’s a voice that says the emotion means the belief is true.  It’s lying.

You MUST remember, “If a belief generates emotions, it isn’t true.”  That becomes your new mantra until you find your True Self.  Belief systems, usually from religion, culture, or social status, make letting go hard.  But hard doesn’t mean impossible.  You undo them one belief at a time.

True freedom means that you’ve let go of all beliefs.  The True Self has no permanent beliefs.  As you continue to let go, discrimination becomes easier.  The process quickens and becomes a normal part of life. Discrimination, the willingness to let go, and the desire to BE YOURSELF is the only formula you need for complete freedom.

Letting Go of Beliefs Using Emotional Release Techniques

emotional release

By Cathy Eck 

 

Why Do We Have Emotions?

I was so confused by emotions growing up.  My father seemed to have too few, and my mother seemed to have too many.  My mother’s way of emotional release wasn’t pretty.  I decided at a young age, that I wanted to find the true purpose of emotions.

Most people hate their emotions.  They go to extreme lengths to avoid or suppress them.  If addictions or distractions don’t sooth their emotional body, they make their environment sterile from triggering events and people.  Then their lives start to mimic a fish in a glass bowl.  Every day looks the same — nothing ever changes.  Others develop a hard shell and lose their ability to be intimate or authentic with others.  Avoiding emotions isn’t the answer.

 

Emotions Turn Us Inward

Emotions are designed to pull us inward so we’ll examine our minds and let go of problematic beliefs (causes).  Ideally, when we feel emotion, we’d remove our attention from what is outside and turn inside.  We’d witness or follow the emotion to the causal belief.  We’d let the causal belief go, and the emotion would go too.

When we release, suppress, or express our emotions without finding the causal belief, we create a temporary fix, not a permanent cure.

 

If your beliefs are serving you and harmless to others, you won’t feel emotions and you won’t cause emotional outbursts in others.  Emotions were wrongfully blamed because they reveal beliefs; they keep us truthful.  They push us to be ourselves.

Often people in our past didn’t like our True Self.  They forced their beliefs on us in order to make us like them.  We twisted our minds to think that the emotion we felt around their beliefs confirms their rightness, creating psychological reversal.

We have two choices in life.  We can let go of our desire to live in the world authentically as our True Self and follow the path of our beliefs (false self), or we can let go of whatever beliefs pulled us into the illusion and live as our True Selves.

 

Emotional Release Techniques

Most therapy is about creating an emotional release because emotions are considered evil within the illusion.  If you want complete freedom, you need techniques that free beliefs, not just emotions.  Eliminating emotions provides relief, but it doesn’t eliminate the cause.

If you examine the emotional release technique of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), the practitioner advises the client to rub themselves or tap on certain meridians while saying words like, “Even though I’m very ashamed of myself, I unconditionally love and accept myself.”  Those words still accept the notion of shame as real or possible.  Shame exists only in the illusion so the action is trying to fix the illusory shame rather than let it go.  Shame doesn’t exist in the True Self.

The patient believes they’ve fixed the problem, and so it appears.  But they’ve really put ice cream on top of manure and created a sundae.  They’re left with shame plus a belief that shame was removed.  They don’t get the complete release of knowing that shame isn’t real.

In the illusion, there’s a core principal that the illusion is true.  Therefore, you can’t let it go.  Doctors, therapists, lawyers, government, military, teachers, inventors, and parents are all trying to fix the illusion.  Thus, the illusion stays in tack.  To get free, you have to let go the illusion — not fix it.

 

Letting Go is True Emotional Release

Before I discovered how to let go, I tried to EFT.  I feared that I was going to put holes in my body because I tapped so much.  I lived in an environment where beliefs were spoken all the time.  It was clear that emotional release techniques didn’t help because my environment triggered beliefs and created new emotions as fast as I could release them.

We could adapt the language of EFT to include letting go so it becomes more than just emotional release. You’d do that by changing the language to include discrimination.  When you rub or tap to say, “Even though…blah, blah,” you could change the words to, “I let go of the belief that I’m a bad person because shame is a false idea.”  However, you can’t fake letting go; it can’t just be about saying the words like a mantra.

You must recognize that your belief in shame is false.  Your True Self never did anything wrong, even if your false self did.  Everything judged bad is false because anything bad or evil is caused by false beliefs like the notion of good and evil, and you didn’t invent that.

Bad or wrong only happens within the illusion.  In the illusion, it ALWAYS takes two to tango.  Victimhood is clearly part of the illusion.  Every event in the illusion is about two opposing charges coming together.  Most people are stuck in the illusion because they’ve been labeled bad or wrong, while the person holding the opposing charge is also stuck in their false goodness and irresponsibility.  If we get that, we can free ourselves completely.

When we let go of a causal belief, we return to our True Self.  Emotional release occurs as a natural biproduct.

 

Discrimination

If we do emotional release with discrimination, we’ll eventually realize that tapping is silly.  We’ll realize that what caused the letting go was always the fact that we discriminated between true and false.  We somehow got to the truth and realized that there is no bad or evil.  We realized that shame is illusory.  We can now eliminate the middle man and forget the tapping or breathing or any other ritual.

Emotional release is only a temporary fix.  If we don’t let the causal belief go, it will keep creating reality and those related emotions will return.  When we do the complete job of letting go at the cause, we never have the same problem or experience again.  We’re one belief closer to the freedom of a pure virgin mind.

 

Judgment Versus Discrimination

Judgment vs. discrimination

Judgment keeps us stuck within the illusion;        discrimination frees us.

 

By Cathy Eck

What is Judgment?

There are certain parts of the illusion that are particularly sticky, and this is one of them.  I got stuck in this so many times, I looked like the tar baby.  Judgment is what pulls us in to the illusion and keeps us stuck.  Discrimination is what sets us free.  But they often look the same.  I would think I was judging when I was discriminating and vice versa.  It is a distinction ripe for level confusion.

I first became interested in judgment when I started going to church with my fiancé and his family.  One day, the priest gave a sermon on judgment.  When we left the church, everyone was judging everyone else.  “What in the hell happened in that church?” I wondered.

It was many years before I understood.  The priest saw his own judgment in the congregation (often called projection).  His position of authority allowed him to appear to tower above judgment.  The congregation accepted his projection as true.  Then they proved him right.  This is how we get beliefs from authorities.

This all started long ago when kings saw themselves above their minions, rendering them elite.  I once met an ex-priest who explained this seeming elevation.  He said that when he put on his white robe, he could feel his superior ego building.  He would stand different, talk different, and even think different while the robe covered his body.  This was what motivated him to leave the church; he didn’t like himself anymore.  He wasn’t comfortable being superior, and he could see that he was projecting his shadow on his congregation.  He had simply outgrown the illusion.

The ex-priest’s experience isn’t much different from Clark Kent putting on his superman suit and flying above the helpless townspeople.  The most honest of the bunch is the judge putting on his or her black robe — now they have the right to judge without having to judge the fact that they are judging.

Judgment stems from the notion of good and evil, right and wrong.  When we judge something, we believe one side of duality is right or good; the other side is bad or wrong.  Judgments fall at the bottom of the triangle.

In judgment, we hold both sides of any split within our mind.  We identify with one half; the other half we project on to someone who fits the bill.  Projection isn’t necessarily bad — it is a matter of degree.  You might not want to be a drag queen, but Ru Paul will gladly take what you don’t want and become more famous.  Projection isn’t much of a problem when it happens in that way because both people enjoy their role.  You could say that it is a fair trade.  But if you project that Ru Paul is evil because he is gay, he won’t appreciate your projection.  The difference is that drag queen was projected out of preference; evil was projected as a judgment.

 

Blind to Projection

People have become experts at covering up their judgmental projections with sweet masks.  Thus, the person receiving the projection often feels blindsided.  Fundamentalist preachers are famous for saying, “I like gays fine; it’s God that doesn’t like them.”  They project their judgment on God so they can look holy while casting judgment on another.  I suspect this is exactly how God fell from unconditionally loving to punishing and mean.  (Sorry gay friends, I just use this example because it’s the hot target now.)

If you’ve ever hung out with a teenage boy who farts and then pretends you did it, you get what I mean.  In my experience, the sweeter and gooder (can’t think of another word) the personality, the more likely they’re the one farting.

 

Judgment Hides Inside

Judgment is a split between two polar opposites spiced with good and evil, right and wrong.  Projection of judgment feels freeing because it appears that the part of duality that we don’t want is gone.  But both halves of the split are still within our body-mind.  If the other doesn’t want to play their projected role anymore, our projection will fly right back to us.  Consequently, guilt and shame were invented as  powerful tools to keep said projection on the projectee.

A young child agrees to be the black sheep of the family.  They do the bad things and take the punishments.  Then they go off and find out they aren’t bad anymore.  In fact, they’re really good and kind.  When they return home, they no longer accept the projection, and all hell breaks loose.  The projections are like boomerangs smacking all the family members silly.  If the grown-up child is now clear and sees that they were just acting out the projections of their family members, they won’t take on that role again.

 

Discrimination

Discrimination is the opposite of judgment.  Where judgment focuses on right and wrong, good and bad, discrimination chooses between true and false.  Good and bad have equal power.  True has all power; false has none.  When we discriminate, we recognize that we didn’t fart.  We defuse the situation entirely within our own mind.  Fighting can’t happen when people discriminate.

We know we don’t judge when we sit in the priest’s congregation, so we don’t take on his projection.  We stay true to our Self.  We ignore his sermon or maybe realize that we can’t learn from someone who projects on us.  Our life shifts and moves when we discriminate until we end up exactly where we are meant to be.

Discrimination is about recognizing when something is true so you can enjoy it; it is about letting go of what is false so you never have to deal with it again.  Each time we discriminate, we take a step back toward our True Self; until eventually, we are free.

 

Meditation for the western mind explains a great exercise that I use for discrimination.

 

 

Believing Others Who Cry Wolf or are Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Stories that Got Us In the Illusion

 By Cathy Eck

 

Believing Others

When I was fresh out of college, I went to work for Peat, Marwick, & Mitchell, the largest accounting firm in the world.  I chose accounting because my parents thought I should be a secretary or teacher (female jobs); I didn’t like either.  So I choose my major based on my husband’s advice, which was what his brothers thought he should do, which was what his dad thought his brothers should do.  So you see, my choice was based on a long line of people believing others knew best.  I thought they knew what was best for me when they didn’t even know what was best for themselves.

I worked as an auditor looking for fraud.  I didn’t love my job, but I worked with really smart people; and I was damn good.  I was rewarded because thinking out of the box was what brought in clients, uncovered fraud, and earned big fees.  But I wasn’t an auditor at heart because auditors expose problems.  Their business can’t exist without problems and fraud.  So they have no motivation to support a better world where accountants are competent and trustworthy.

I left that job after four years to start a business that fixed the causes of the problems I saw.  Eventually, studying causes led to beliefs…

 

Extreme Believing Others

Yesterday, I watched a television show about apocalyptic beliefs.  The show focused on a popular Christian author, who has written over fifteen fiction books on the apocalypse.  He said he writes to inform people that the end is coming soon, and they need to get saved pronto.

He truly believes he’s doing God’s work.  I felt so much emotion listening to him because everything he said was false.  My emotions were telling me “Don’t believe him,” and I didn’t.  The truth is that he writes from his own beliefs — a fantasy involving compete ruin of the earth and everyone on it except for him and his minions.  Is he the boy who cries wolf or a wolf in sheep’s clothing?   That depends on where we stand as readers.  I think he’s just a guy who believes the voices in his head are God talking.  As they shared the story of his life, it was clear where the voices came from — not God.

I love books because I enjoy reading and learning about people.  I hate them because people read them and believe them without discriminating.  Many authors, like apocalypse man, use the written word to hypnotize others into accepting or supporting beliefs.

In the illusion, humans take beliefs that should simply be entertaining or creative and relabel them truth.  People who read “Harry Potter” don’t usually become magicians.  J.K. Rowling simply wanted to entertain.  But some people have a way of making us believe that their fiction is the truth — often they use fear to do that.  They create stories that get us stuck in the illusion; to get unstuck, we have to see their stories as false.  We must break the hypnosis.

 

Letting Go of My Past

Last night, after watching the apocalypse show, I dreamed that I was back at Peat Marwick, working with the same bright people except we were running a publishing company.  My job was to read books submitted by authors and determine whether they supported the truth or beliefs (false).  I was once again looking for the lies (or fraud) in books.  My career had come full circle.  Of course, I rejected the apocalypse guy’s dream of him being saved while I burned in hell.  But once again, my heart’s desire was to fix the cause and avoid the problem.

At times these believers look mighty powerful; millions of minions believe them completely.  I ain’t got no minions.  But he’s simply a character within my mind; if I see him as powerful, he is.  I can’t change all the books and eliminate the apocalyptic believers, nor do I have to.

On the surface, we look like opponents.  But we both want the same thing — peace on earth.  In his vision, some win and most lose.  In my vision, everybody can let go of their apocalyptic beliefs.  All can win.

It looks like I need him to change his mind.  It appears that I need minions to live my vision, but I don’t.  I only need to let go of his apocalyptic belief within my mind.  I need to discriminate to set myself free — to find my peace on earth.

The ancient masters explained that our minds were not meant to be interconnected.  We all create our lives through the beliefs we hold within our mind; and we can change our fate by simply letting go of the beliefs that are not useful.  Nothing is predetermined in the true world.

 

Discrimination

As a young adult, I believed those who were older and wiser.  They were older, but they weren’t wiser.  They simply gave me their best answer based on the sum total of their beliefs (their illusion).  I can’t fault them for what they gave me; I can only fault myself for believing them.  I fell into their beliefs because I thought that others knew the truth when they only knew their beliefs.  The first beliefs that most of us install as children come from our parents:

“If it happened to them, it can happen to me.”  

“I don’t have the answer.”  

These are good beliefs to let go; they don’t serve us.  The apocalypse guy simply writes from his beliefs, his illusion.  If we recognize that, we can enjoy a good read.  Drama was created thousands of years ago to entertain.  But if we hold it as the truth, then we might get to live it — like it or not.

 

Have opinions or ideas, not beliefs!

 

What are Your Real Gifts? It Might Surprise You.

Reverse the Curse

Is the person who made this sign a disobedient pain in the ass of society or an enlightened lover of truth?

By Cathy Eck

 

Real Gifts or Talents?

Most people confuse their real gifts with talents.  They are a good singer, writer, artist, golfer, or cook.  But those activities are not their real gifts.  Talents give us something fun to do, help us make money, or get us approval within the illusion.  But our real gifts are the qualities that get us out of the illusion.

 

The Truth About Passion  

There is a big follow-your-passion mania today.  Passion has become associated with doing what we love.  But people forget that the word passion has been strongly associated with the crucifixion of Jesus.  Often when people try to find or follow their passion, their life starts to look like a giant crucifixion.  Here’s why.

The crucifixion was called the passion because it was the last act before Jesus achieved freedom from the illusion.  In ancient times, some people remembered that we were born to be free.  They entered mystery schools to find the keys.  Those who succeeded were said to be twice born or resurrected beings.

The story of the crucifixion wasn’t about killing the Son of God because that isn’t possible; it was about the death of the false self, the ego.  Jesus’ story is a model initiation story; and all great initiation stories end in freedom.  The false self dies and the True Self wins the battle of good and evil.  Peace and freedom reign.

Sadly, the illusion contains the notion that Jesus died for our sins. It ignores the fact that the illusory world is still full of sin, which proves its error.  But the false self never sees that it’s the problem.  Jesus’ real gift was exposing the illusion, and it was turned into the curse of martyrdom.

 

What is our real gift?  

Our real gift frees our mind by exposing and eliminating our false self.  It is the inner strength that puts the winning odds on the side of our True Self.  It is the part of our mind that is absolutely loyal to the truth.

People hypnotized by the illusion will label our real gift a curse, a defect, or a character flaw because it won’t conform.  It won’t blindly obey even if you beat it, judge it, or imprison it.  It refuses to listen to stupid rules or accept rituals that don’t make sense.

So how do you find this gift?  Look to the people who have criticized you the most.  They have exposed your real gift by calling it a curse.

 

Look Inside a Painful Memory

When I was in third grade, my nasty ass teacher said to always answer her questions.  I raised my hand every time I knew an answer because she said to, and I was afraid of her.  One day, she called me a know-it-all.  I was horrified and embarrassed.  I didn’t even know what a know-it-all was.  I didn’t know what I did wrong.

Then I tested high on an IQ test, and my mother was horrified.  I’d never get a man if I knew more than men.  I was supposed to be nice and cute, not wise.  This issue showed up again and again in every aspect of my life except for my work where I was paid handsomely for my expertise, which was nothing more than my ability to know all the answers to big problems.

For four decades, I was sure this was my curse.  I believed that I was an arrogant know-it-all.  When I looked through true eyes, I saw people making problems, sickness, and suffering and then pretending they didn’t know the answer so they could be less than the doctor, lawyer, or clergy.  They needed a big-ass dose of know-it-all.  The people in my life believed that being dumb and submissive was nice or holy.  People seemed to want my expertise to fix their problems, not my wisdom to end their problems.  I became very jaded.

But it wasn’t their fault.  They were stuck in the false world.  They were taught that their know-it-allness was bad so they applied the same judgment to me.

 

Level Confusion

Everything in the true world is 180 degrees from the false world.  This is how we get lost and confused.  To the ancient ones, this was called level confusion.

Our gifts usually have a horrible label in the false world.  Some of those labels are disobedient, rebellious, overly emotional, or daydreamer.  More therapeutic labels include ADD, ADHD, autism, bi-polar, or Asperger’s syndrome.  Our gifts often show up in socially unacceptable ways — such as emotional men, someone who surfs all day and forgets to show up for work, or someone who refuses to serve their country in war.  The very thing that causes us to rebel against the status quo is often our real gifts that can set us free if we can peel off the judgment that clouds them.

Someone who surfs all day is a genius at going with the flow.  Someone who is a daydreamer is a visionary.  The ADHD person moves at a faster pace than those in the illusion.  The Asperger’s person can’t stand the false nice, sickening sweet, personality.  The one who hates war knows peace.  Each of these gifts labeled curses, like my know-it-all, expose beliefs and destroy the illusion if we can just express them.  By fearlessly expressing our real gifts, we set everyone free.

We have to use the key that we were given.  We have to stop hiding our real gift or feeling embarrassed by it.  We have to stop believing the judgments that others throw our way.  When we finally express our real gifts, our false self loses power very quickly because we’ve found our true passion, our true purpose, and our True Self.

Taking Back Our Power, Oprah Style

Oprah at Women's conference

Oprah refers to her Texas beef companies lawsuit experience as a metaphor for life’s trials. She is grateful for the lesson.

Oprah and Taking Back Our Power

While recently watching a clip of the Oprah Show where Oprah won her lawsuit against the Texas beef companies, Dr. Phil shared his perspective.  Dr. Phil was her coach during the trial.  His comment went something like this.  He said that she was constantly questioning herself and wondering why the beef people thought what they did.  She was unable to be herself.

Oprah said this was a very confusing time for her.  She was used to saying whatever she thought, having the last word, and just being herself.  She was not used to shutting up and holding back.

Dr. Phil pointed out that everything changed when Oprah finally realized that she had done nothing wrong.  The win came when she knew, not believed, that she was not guilty.  In short, she remembered who she really was.  Oprah demonstrated the art of taking back our power.  Oprah said that she learned an important lesson from that trial, which she considered a metaphor for all of life’s trials.

 

Letting Go is Taking Back Our Power

I love that example of learning the art of taking back our power, because I have this conversation with people all the time.  Letting go is all about taking back our power.  Oprah returned to her real self because she realized that her false self was lying.  She didn’t affirm for days that she was her real self.  She didn’t visualize a win.  She got that the beliefs of the others were false; and she dropped them from her own mind.  That caused her to have all the power, and the trial came to an end.

This is exactly why we let go.  The false self either gives our power away or takes it from others because it has no power of its own.  Our True Self, on the other hand, is all powerful all of the time.  So when any one person returns to their True Self in a situation, the outcome is always win-win.  (Remember that it is a win for a false self to lose because now it has a chance to let go.  If the false self wins, it perpetuates the wrongful thinking.)

Over and over again, when people let go, they discover that all the crap that happened to them was only the result of their beliefs, their false self.  They had gotten caught in a false self give and take relationship or situation.  When they let go, they can see that they never did anything wrong, nor could they ever do anything wrong.  Their True Self is still in pristine condition.  And when the false self disappears, our True Self’s perfection fills the vacuum.

 

False Selves Love to Be Right

People, like the Texas beef companies, often try very hard to convince themselves and others that what they believe is true or right.  They will go to extreme lengths to be right because they see right as powerful.  Since we don’t agree with them, they figure that we must be wrong.

It is in those moments that we must discriminate.  They are teaching us how to stay true to our Self.  If we can see their beliefs as false, then we begin taking back our power.  If they convince us to believe them, they will win because their beliefs label us bad or wrong; and our power fades when we feel bad about ourselves.

So when we lose our knowing, our True Self, our power, how do we get it back?  We have to keep letting go of the beliefs or thoughts that are holding us hostage.  We have to stop believing the one who wants our power even if they are an authority figure in our life.  They can only trap us in their web if we have a belief that allows them to be right in our mind.  Even though the authority or perpetrator looks like they have the power, we are actually in control.  We just need to focus on our mind and keep it pure and clear.  Then we start the process of taking back our power.

 

Tricks to Discrimination

There are many tricks to regaining our discrimination and taking back our power. Often I think back to an earlier time when I didn’t have their belief in my mind.  The comparison helps me discriminate.

Other times, I notice that their belief is not win-win for everyone, so it is not true.  Sometimes, I look to see if their belief has a payoff.  This also indicates it is false (following the money often provides conclusive evidence of a belief).

Of course, the best evidence of a belief is how it feels. Beliefs normally feel bad, but some people feel good when they win because they have numbed themselves to the awful feeling of seeing another lose.

The moment we remember who we are, we begin taking back our power from any situation, person, or organization.  In fact, our True Self can’t have opposition so it can never lose.
