A Brief History of Initiation and The End Result of It

No Matter How Ornate your Mask, your True Self is Much More Beautiful!

My quest to bring back initiation began formally twelve years ago when I wrote the first article on the gatewaytogold blog. At that time, my life changed from freedom for me to freedom for all. Since then, I’ve been on an adventure that no one else can even really imagine. The people in the Gold Circle and Golden Gateway have had front row seats, and they have come along with me. I often tell them that I’m opening the exit gateways that lead out of the illusion, and their job is to make those exits bigger and wider so that others can find them more easily. That is happening, but each exit is a huge challenge. The gateways have been rusted shut by beliefs that people have come to hold in mind as TRUE.

Everyone enters initiation thinking that they are a lot closer to the end of the tunnel than they really are. They get impatient; they want me to make it easier or faster for them. They want me to fix their problems NOW! I can only tell them how to let go; I can’t let go for them. In initiation, you work on a topic and you get that wonderful insight of freedom; you can’t imagine that you’ll ever lose that incredible feeling. Then you hit another topic, or a challenging relationship issue, and you feel like you are starting all over again. That’s normal. I have the same challenge. While the members of my programs work on personal issues, I work on collective issues. Often I’m exposing a collective issue that I’ve never experienced; that’s like decoding a document that’s written in a foreign language. But I work on it until I know it is false; and then I expose it. Knowing something is false is not the same as believing it is false; knowing takes a lot longer than believing. But once you know the difference between true and false on a topic, you never lose your footing again.

My research into the mind and the occult way of thinking started over thirty years ago, but it all really began when I was five years old. My mother was telling me about suffering, and I told her that I would end it with absolute confidence. Around the same time, I picked up a Bible that my mom had sitting on a coffee table; and I said, “I’m going to have to fix this damn thing.” Of course, at five-years old I couldn’t do anything about the Bible or suffering. But I remember speaking those words like it was yesterday. I knew what I came to earth to do. Today I am doing both; I now understand my five-year old self.

Initiation is the answer to understanding the Bible, which is our collective mental history. Religion has turned the Bible into our collective physical history; thus, the Bible itself fell into the illusion as did every other sacred text on the planet. Initiation is also the answer to the end of suffering of all kinds. No form of suffering is true. It is all a byproduct of the illusory point of view or man-made thinking.

When times are good, people don’t give a damn about initiation. But when we run into rough times, initiation is necessary. It is the only cure for the illusory curse. If you remove the “S” from the word “curse,” you get the word, “cure.” The occultists at the top of the pyramid of power know that the “S” stands for the deception of the Serpent, like the snake’s hissing sound of SSSSS, in the Garden of Eden; that’s how Adam and Eve got stuck in the occult illusion. But religion tells people that the fall was caused by their original sin. Do you see the correlation to what we are experiencing today? The globalists don’t think they are wrong for tricking us; they are the Serpents. They label us wrong for believing their tricks. That’s what they did to Adam and Eve. Nothing has changed.

So good, kind people believe that they are sinners when they are not. Religion got clever to soothe the wounded people, and said Jesus removed the sins. But what is sin anyway? Is it mental or is it physical acts? Sin has been translated in earlier times as simply “missing the mark.” It means that we went in the wrong direction. So what? Sin is really just second-cause thinking. It’s not a big deal if someone tells us that we can let that false thinking go. But when people like me say that, we are generally ignored. People feel naked without their belief system. In other words, most people think they need a mask.

The story of Jesus was an initiation story that has been pulled into the illusion. There are so many initiation stories that have been pulled into the illusion by the occultists. That’s why I decode those stories and free those characters in the Golden Gateway. But people can’t use my decodes effectively until they know how to let go and how to discriminate. That’s why I had to do the Gold Circle first. As a warning, don’t put this information into your mind. Let go of the beliefs that caused you to believe those Serpent occultists in your past. Every person reading this article has done an Adam and Eve stunt. Serpents are everywhere. We also call them “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” You aren’t free of them until you clearly see the wolf under that sheep’s mask.

When we are stuck in the illusion, we can’t see beyond the edges of it. So we keep believing lies and liars. We think that we are taking an exit, but we are actually diving deeper into the illusion because we believed some other charlatan who said they had the truth. As we let go, however, we see the true reality; and the illusion comes to look false. Our discrimination returns; and we no longer have to let go manually (like I share in the Gold Circle). We start letting go naturally like we did before the mental fall. That’s when our initiation is complete.

To understand why initiation is so difficult, you have to understand why it disappeared. At some point, the occult way of thinking became very popular. People followed false leaders because they declared themselves to be Gods. (Some think those false Lords were aliens, but they’re wasting their time researching that. It doesn’t matter if the Lords were nasty-ass humans or aliens. If aliens don’t have free minds and we do, the aliens will go away.) In the Bible, that time when we first started following other humans was called “the fall.” It’s when people stopped following inspiration and their True Self. They started following outer leaders who were not true leaders. It’s safe to follow a true leader. They will fully allow you to be yourself. They will only serve to keep the vision of Heaven on Earth alive. They will help anyone who falters. But false leaders were showing up everywhere around the world. This is why you see architecture like the Pyramids of Giza that we can’t build today. We did great things with ease when we were our True Selves.

At some point, we all stopped eating from the “Tree of Life,” and we started to eat from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.” That story wasn’t about our diet…sorry vegans. Eating referred to what we were putting into our minds. In the Gold Circle, I tear that story apart and fully decode it. The CliffsNotes version of the story is that we stopped thinking from our True Selves; and we started thinking from the false mind, or what I refer to as the triangle bottom. The false mind is meant to be our creative container; but we made it into a memory storage device. So we lost our ability to be perfect creators. Letting go cleans our mind of second-cause knowledge and beliefs; so it reverses the fall. It’s simple…common sense.

Today, occult thinking has infected every subject and every group. The occult indoctrination begins in the churches and schools; but it doesn’t end there. Everywhere you go for help is just another trap door. This is what I label Act II of our full-circle story. Stories are based on three acts; and our life is a story. Act III is when we stop listening to others outside of us, and we start exposing false. Act III of our story is initiation. Initiation means that we go back to what we were INITIALLY, but mentally (not physically). When we achieve our mental full-circle story, we also achieve our physical full-circle story. However, the leaders of the illusion focus on the physical. They cheat so that they can get the full-circle physical rewards without having earned them mentally.

In the illusion, it appears that we can’t get back to the Tree of Life, but we can. Eden was never a physical place; it was always a state of mind. But we must get that state of mind by letting go of what is false, not by adding more false beliefs to our mind. This is where everyone gets confused; and therefore, they stay stuck in Act II. Most people die in Act II of their story. They never get to Act III. They come back again and repeat that same error in lifetime after lifetime.

The entire illusion works on the power of numbers. It’s always been that way. People collectively move as a group with same or opposing beliefs. There are subgroups within the collective. One group is always fighting with another group, either mentally or physically. Then there are subgroups within the subgroups. The illusion is like a house of mirrors. It’s layers upon layers of beliefs. So when we remove a layer of beliefs, we find another layer underneath. For some people the initiation journey takes them back to earlier times in this life. For those who believe in past lives, it takes them back to beliefs they got in earlier lives. But like I said before, time is irrelevant with initiation. Time doesn’t disappear; it simply loses all meaning as you let go.

Today, you can see how the globalists use divide and conquer to keep the illusion alive. People fall right into the trap over and over again; we are programmed to do so from the time that we are born. The soul mind is a divided, fallen mind. It holds the first division of good and evil. Then it keeps collecting second-cause divisions. In Eden, there was only good with no opposite. But once our mind is divided, we hold both sides of the triangle bottom in mind. We can’t fake goodness without projecting evil out; that’s why there are so many wolves in sheep’s clothing. You can’t get back to your truly good nature unless you let go of the whole triangle bottom of good and evil…which means letting go of fake definitions of goodness.

In the illusion, physical cause produces physical effect. That false way of thinking has replaced true and false and mental cause produces physical effect. In true and false, true was all powerful; and false was the illusion…powerless. So discrimination was natural and easy. When we are stuck in good and evil, right and wrong, superior and inferior, positive and negative, spiritual or unspiritual, etc., we don’t have that natural discrimination anymore. We are psychologically reversed. So it feels like we are in quicksand.

Today, spiritual teachers and gurus claim to fix people’s minds. But they’re lying. Now we have the light workers versus the dark workers, the high vibrators versus the low vibrators (that sounds weird), those who are ascending to 5D versus those damn smelly 3D people, and we have the white hats against the black hats. Oh and don’t let me forget that we have the off-world aliens versus the humans. It’s all just more insanity that fuels the illusion bigly. It’s more second-cause thinking that’s being falsely labeled as true.

Everyone today is so outer directed. The experts blame this on technology. But technology isn’t the cause; our minds were outer-directed long before technology. The problem with technology is that we are making technology more powerful than we are instead of allowing technology to serve us. That’s because people have made knowledge too important. Remember, knowledge is what started the fall; the first knowledge was the knowledge of good and evil; and we just keep adding more and more second-cause knowledge to our minds. So how can we reverse the fall?

Currently my websites are having some serious problems. I don’t have the technical knowledge to fix this situation. So I have to depend on the fact that someone else has the knowledge. Knowledge has a limit. I’m sure that there will be a fix to my websites. It’s not that big of a deal. I have backups that I can recreate the sites if needed. But people die of diseases every day because knowledge has failed them. People lose their income and savings because knowledge has failed them. Knowledge is not the answer to the elimination of suffering; and sadly, people think that it is. Knowledge was the cause of suffering not the solution.

People will say that they don’t value knowledge; they use their intuition. They are the other side of the triangle bottom. Every intuitive is very good at scanning their knowledge, or the collective knowledge, to find an answer to problems that aren’t true. Intuition doesn’t take us outside of the illusion. To get outside of the illusion, we must let go of all second-cause thinking and the intuition that uses that knowledge. We move to inspiration, which is beyond words or uses the first-cause words in our minds sporadically. First-cause thinking is natural and will remain. First-cause thinking is always win win for all. Today there are so many people looking for the truth in others when they already have the truth within. We have reached the point of complete delusion as a collective; and the worst part is that people don’t realize that the illusion is false. Someone once commented that the trap of being an American is that you think you are free when you really aren’t. They nailed it. Now that American delusion has spread around the world. People are promising freedom who have not let go of one belief from their own minds. People have come to believe that being able to choose between black coffee and a latte is freedom. Or they think that choosing where they live or what they wear is freedom. We have to get clear about freedom. It starts in our own minds; and it’s NOT floating above our mind (eastern meditation), changing our minds to be positive (self-help), or ignoring our minds by denying what we believe (having our heads up our asses). Letting go is what permanently quiets our minds. But letting go is still just a cute catchphrase for most. They talk about it, but they don’t do it.

When we actually do let go, we enter the path of initiation, which I call Act III of our full-circle story; and there is no turning back. We start to see through the occultists’ illusion in every form; and we know that no one wins in the illusion except for the people who ultimately control the globe. Everyone else loses physically. But mentally, even the winners of the illusion lose; they don’t get back to their Eden-like minds. They get stuck in Act II of their story, so they never get free. They get recycled back into the pyramid of power at the bottom.

I used to do hypnosis and people always wanted to do regressions. I thought that regressions were kind of stupid; but it’s what they wanted, so I did it. Sometimes, they’d find out that they were a royal in another life, and they felt so important. They couldn’t see that the same beliefs that made them a royal in that life made them a complete failure in this life. People label that karma, but I don’t see it that way. People simply flip sides on the triangle bottom until they wise up and let the whole triangle bottom go. If they drop the desire to be a royal at the top of the pyramid of power, they will never have to be a pawn at the bottom of the pyramid of power. You cannot be something that you don’t hold in mind.

As you let go, you come to realize that the way of thinking that we’re all taught from childhood is backwards; it’s not natural. So everyone on earth lives in a normal state that’s not natural. When we live in that false state of mind, we don’t even find nature to be natural. We are even seeing a projected view of nature from our backwards minds. So people will think that nature is struggling when it is not. The globalists see climate change because they are obsessed with controlling the weather; they want to demonstrate that they are better than God. They are insane. Don’t believe them. Nature was meant to be our feedback. We weren’t supposed to be harming or fixing nature. It was supposed to help us see what to let go so that we could remain on our perfect life path.

Like I said above, people are naturally good; so people do their best to soothe their misery and the misery of others. That’s very sweet and endearing, but it doesn’t do anything to eliminate the illusion. That being said, never feel bad for getting duped by the illusion. It happened to everyone of us.

All of us are truly good inside, even those damn globalists. When people let go, they realize that they never did anything wrong. When they did something that they were ashamed of, or feel guilty about, they were believing someone with authority who was lying to them. They didn’t trust their own True Self because they were told not to. That doesn’t make them bad or a sinner; that makes them confused or lost. If you run into someone who is lost in a city, and they ask you for directions, you help them find their way. You don’t call them stupid and cleverly take advantage of them. That’s what the occultists who want to rule the world have done. They view themselves as clever tricksters. But the game has gone too far. So we have to call the game by exposing it as false. That’s the only way to end their false reign of power.

The occultists are all power hungry, and they come with many labels: Zionists, Jesuits, the high ranking of every religion, illuminati, royalty, secret societies of all types, and much more. Occult simply means hidden. So anything that falls under the umbrella of the divided mind is occult. When we have a divided mind, we can think, speak, and act from one side of the triangle bottom; we can appear to be good while hiding the bad. We can appear to be positive while hiding our negative. This results in projection, which is another very common occultist tool. In ancient times, the occultists were called the two-faced Gods. Those at the top of the pyramid of power all projected on those below them; the people with the most followers usually dominated the other occultists. It was all about the power of numbers. Now normal people do that to each other with their social media following. We become just like the people we follow.

The globalists in all of these various groups believe that once we normal people are defeated, they will fight among themselves to become “The One.” They think that there can be ONLY one ruler for the whole earth. But they have divided minds. So they will always meet opposition. They don’t know what they don’t know. They’ll find out the hard way.

By letting go, we can escape the illusion of opposition and pull others out too. We don’t have to wait for the slow hands of time until the collective returns to Heaven on Earth. That might never happen. When we let go, we regain our true power; and the occultists become our minions. The difference is that we will won’t harm a hair on their little heads. We just won’t allow them to have power over others anymore. They can destroy their own lives, but they can’t hurt others. Of course, occultists don’t want to lose their false power. So they have always seen the initiates as their biggest enemy. Said in the microcosmic way, the clones voices in our false mind see our True Self as their biggest enemy. The macrocosm and the microcosm are the same at the mental level of perception.

Occultists love their divide-and-conquer trick. They pit black people against white people and women against men. Now it’s even gay against straight. They pit Russia or China against America. It’s the globalists who got liberals to hate conservatives with such vengeance when Donald Trump was elected. The elite globalists in America don’t like Donald Trump because he knows what they are hiding. He exposes them to the public, and exposure is what destroys their false power. He often puts the globalist minions front and center, like he did with Fauci. He wants us to see these false leaders for what they are. He wants us to stop believing them.

People all over the world see this now, and that’s why people in Europe and Africa and even Asia call Donald Trump their President too. He says that he’s all about “America first;” but secretly, he wants to free the whole world from the globalist tyrants, and he isn’t working alone. But you’ve probably noticed that the globalists don’t go down without a serious fight. So he’s not going to fix this in a day. He needs us to do our part by exposing and letting go of our own false beliefs. The outer collective battle looks the same as our inner battle. So we all don’t see the same collective illusion. That’s what makes this very confusing when we are too outer directed. When we work on our inner battle, the outer collective battle starts to ease up. I call that validation that we’ve let go.

People have been trained by the occultists to believe that the exposer of beliefs is evil. Who does that benefit? So most people are afraid to expose beliefs as false. In truth, it is the people who impose or project beliefs on others that are evil in the illusion. Evil is just live spelled backwards. No one is actually evil. People can’t be evil when we are innately good. But as the reverse of “live or life,” it means headed to death or the grave. The grave is like gravity or seriousness, and we all become very grave when we are stuck in the illusion. So we want some lightness or levity, which we get by letting go.

The occultists even put things on the television like the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard court case to divide us. Or they manifest a fake shooting, riot, or terror event; they want to keep us fighting over guns or no guns, abortion or no abortion, borders or no borders, drag queen teachers or straight teachers, etc. If we keep our nose stuck in the details and believe what we see in their contrived reality, which often is nothing but a video produced to generate emotion, we stay stuck in their illusion. Then we are part of the problem. If we ignore reality, we are part of the problem too. If we face reality and expose the beliefs and lies that the occultists have used to fuel the illusion as false, we are part of the solution.

As you let go, you don’t want to do the illusion dance anymore. But you also don’t want to see people suffer. You are confused because those soothing jobs don’t make sense anymore when you don’t want to believe in disease, law, or expertise as knowledge. In my programs, I tell people to take jobs that don’t require a lot of thinking so they can let go all day long. I call them dumb jobs, but it’s actually smart people who take dumb jobs. So there is some irony in my label. The jobs pay their bills, and they get free at the same time. My job is that way in a sense. If I’m thinking or reasoning, I’m not exposing. I have to let go all day long as I write to expose. I manifested a job that forces me to stay on my game. But that doesn’t mean I’m perfect. So I teach everyone how to let go, and I tell them to never memorize what I say. Just use what I write as a catalyst for letting go.

Or if a person is in something like a healing profession, then they should let go of every disease they see in their patients. They will eventually get to Step Three with everyone who comes to them for help, which is where true healing lives (Step Three is unconditional love). Then one day, they will have no healing business because they will be free on the topic of disease. So they will help others to let go of their beliefs around disease. They will find something else that they want to do for a career. The healer door will close and another new and interesting door will open.

Here’s what I see that others don’t. When people let go of the beliefs that they were sold, they lose the division in their own minds; that division was programmed by society. This takes a while because its part of the fallen soul programming. You can’t fix a fallen soul by making it rise again with New Age beliefs. That’s why religion and spirituality have failed to change the world back to Eden. They are opposites on the triangle bottom. We are removing thousands of years of programming and beliefs from our minds in a much shorter span of time in initiation. Even in the ancient past it took ten plus years to get free. Some people spent their whole lives in initiation; they just wanted to avoid coming back to another fallen lifetime. So any progress is good progress. You will do initiation to the extent that you want to do it. Everyone has free will. I see my job as mainly letting people know what is possible.

What I share isn’t big in numbers. Initiation never has been, nor does it need to be. I’m not creating a group or a movement. I’m helping individuals unveil their True Self and finish their full-circle story in this lifetime if they want it. I’m unveiling creative leaders who aren’t wearing masks. If some of us can get back to the Tree of Life, then everything that is run by the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (the occult) doesn’t exist anymore for us. But it still exists for others, and we love those others. So we will expose those false systems and eliminate them so that everyone can have freedom.

In an initiation story, the person often starts out as a healer or teacher (like the story of Jesus), but by the end of the story, they drop that false role. They realize that people don’t need to learn, nor do they need to be fixed. They just need to free their minds.

In initiation, we don’t need support from others to let go; but it sure is nice. Initiation can get lonely and boring if you don’t have a little company from time to time. But when you are someone who is helping people get free of the illusion, you become a threat to the people who want to keep it alive. That’s the crucifixion part of Jesus’s story. That’s where he lets go of the last clone character in his mind; and then he is a free man with the resurrection. It’s all clear when decoded.

Those who benefit by the typical backwards mindset are doing everything possible to keep this quiet. They have a lot to lose…or so they think. So they are confusing everyone today to keep their power. Discrimination is what allows us to see through their confusion tricks. In the illusion today, people don’t know who is good and who is trying to kill them. People don’t even know if they are men or women. There is a school in America that supposedly has a litter box in the bathroom because some kid in the school identifies as a furry…a cat. This is what happens when people only add to their minds and can’t let go.

The globalists have it far too easy. They are also good at lying, but only because they’ve come to believe their own lies. Then people believe them, and they get what they want. They only do their magick tricks because they work. They think that whatever is in their mind is true; they don’t discriminate. That’s why we must get rid of the globalist within our own mind. Our inner globalist is any part of our mind that believes something that is second cause. Jesus said it perfectly when he told us to take the mote out of our own eye first. Michael Jackson said it beautifully when he told us to work on the “Man in the Mirror.” Nearly everything that is in our minds is false. So when we persist, we eventually get to a quiet, peaceful mind. It’s not rocket science; it’s common sense.

So when I push people by exposing beliefs (or programming), there is always a push back at first from the people who held those beliefs in mind as true. Their clones want to keep their thrones. I feel it, and I have let go and stay in that infamous Step Three. That’s not easy. I have to stay in non-judgment and unconditional love even when they are doing their best to stop me. I’m not perfect with it. Try becoming feminine to someone powerful and letting go of everything they project. It’s like mentally climbing Mount Everest. If I lose that Step Three perception, I have to let go until I get it back. I don’t quit when I lose Step Three in initiation. I just go with whatever step I am on (generally Step One) and start moving back up the steps again. Fortunately, I don’t have a mind that does Step Two or 2.5, which is why I move back to the top of the triangle pretty quickly again.

When I’m back on Step Three, I always expose what I’ve let go to get there. That’s why whatever I write is original. Nothing I write is channeled. This article is an exposure of what I’m working on today. It’s what is being projected with regard to my websites.

In order to have freedom for all, everything that is hidden by the occult must be revealed. As I say in the Three Steps, when we soothe our minds with what I call Step 2.5 (popular among New Agers and people into self-help), we are hiding judgment underneath that pretty mask. So our mask might look beautiful on the outside, but it is only there to hide the ugly underneath it. Another word for mask is persona or “managing appearances.” Of course, psychologists have dealt with that, or so they think; they say that we hide our ugly shadow in our unconscious. Initiation is the cure for the unconscious mind. We have nothing to hide when we let go. So we don’t need an unconscious.

Right now, we are facing something collectively that I’ve tried to shift many times. But the pushback is always huge. Usually when I get to Step Three on a topic, it changes in the blink of an eye. But this time it isn’t switching because I’m still getting the pushback on this issue. This issue is the very thing that we all want most…love. But there is conditional and unconditional love. Love includes things like romance, chemistry, and lust. Those things are conditional love among souls with opposing polarities. I have discussed this as it relates to the path of Venus and the apple. I suggest that you read that article again. It’s exposing the occultists as the two-points up view of the five-pointed star (or what is known as Satan by the religious). The one-point up perspective is like the top of the triangle; that’s where we become unconditional love. The journey from two-points up love to one-point up unconditional love is the path of initiation in a nutshell.

You see, true unconditional love is the greatest power in the universe. It is our creative power. It’s the essence of our True Self. But occult creating, which includes things like positive thinking, positive emotions, visualization, memorization, energy movement, all spiritual practices, witchcraft, beliefs, medicine and all healing techniques, psychics and channels, special diets, word spells, astrology, tarot, expert knowledge, techniques for winning arguments, domination techniques, war games, etc., wants to stay alive. That’s how people get their false desires within the illusion. They give up true love and their true desires for false desires; and then they become lustful and overly sexual, which is why there’s so much pedophilia, porn, and sex addiction today. Such things are the effect of the two-points up conditional love, which is love that comes from the second-cause mindset.

People talk about unconditional love. But most people don’t live it. They can’t get to the top of the triangle without letting go. If they did let go and got to the top of the triangle, their problems would go away. I prove that all the time. However, the occult have tried to convince people that conditional love is the most powerful love. They call judgment discrimination and vice versa; they call that tough love. There is no such thing. In the end, unconditional love will win over conditional love.

But in a world of unconditional love, everyone has to give everyone else freedom to live as they want. Are you okay with that? I always ask people what they aren’t willing to give up. Often the answer is a person, a job, a relationship, a belief system, a practice, a pet, a home, etc. They don’t trust their True Self because they can’t remember their true desires. They don’t trust unconditional love. Hanging on to and controlling others is never unconditional love. It’s manipulation; it’s like that Serpent in the Garden of Eden.

Unconditional love starts in our mind; it means that we drop all expectations and desires that another person think like us or act like us. We stop wanting to receive from others, and we start giving mentally by letting go of every judgment we have of everyone in our life and eventually the entire collective illusion. Unconditional love is what causes the illusion to disappear. That’s why a true full-circle story always ends with the person finding unconditional love.

If another person only wanted to be in our life so that they could project on us, and we get back to unconditional love with them, they will often disappear for a while. That’s okay. We welcome them back when they decide to stop projecting and want join us in unconditional love. We might close the door, but we don’t lock it. Everyone will join the initiation train in time, but most will wait until it gets a lot easier.

So people might hate the illusion when it doesn’t work for them. But they have habits of thinking and the desire for approval or control that keeps them stuck in it. They want love, but they don’t want to be the first person to give unconditional love. It’s a funny thing with unconditional love, when we get there, we see what is behind the masks that everyone is wearing. That’s why those with big clone masks run away from us. They are afraid that we will see the secrets and lies that they are hiding. They don’t realize that we don’t even care what they are hiding. We just want to stop playing games with them.

If we suddenly returned to the Eden-like point of view tomorrow, people that we trusted and loved would suddenly not look so good. Those movie stars that we thought had it all would look like programmed robots. Every secret and lie that has been hidden would be revealed in the twinkling of an eye. This the real meaning of the apocalypse. People think of the apocalypse in a physical way today (as physical destruction); but if you go back to the Greek and Latin, it means to uncover. It means to remove the masks and reveal all the lies. That is what is happening today.

The masks are coming off of the people in power. But we have to stop believing their occult ways and thoughts when we see what they were hiding. Too often, I’m noticing that people are taking what the occultists were hiding and making it into their new beliefs. They want the power of the occultists; and that is a trap. This is why the illusion has lasted so long and has become so powerful once again. People think that the fake powers of the occult are true powers. I call that level confusion.

When I work with people, I tell them that anything can be solved in a relationship if we just keep putting all of our cards on the table. I mean that. Lying and keeping secrets never solved any relationship issue. All suffering on this planet started with a simple lie; and that lie has snowballed into an avalanche of lies. We know when someone is lying; we are hard-wired to feel emotion when we hear or think lies. But then we even made it mean to expose a lie or a secret. If you really love someone, put your cards on the table and tell them everything that you are hiding. Show them unconditional love and trust. That frees the relationship. That’s how you get a new beginning. If they can’t go there with you, you were wasting your time on that relationship anyway. It was bondage, not freedom.

Years ago, I painted the mask at the top of this article; and I wrote: “No matter how ornate your mask, your True Self is much more beautiful.” That became my North Star for what I do, and now we are on the cusp of that revelation or uncovering…the apocalypse. Initiation is about taking off our mask on our own terms; because if we don’t remove it, someone will rip the fucking thing off of us in time. The True Self will win the illusion game in the end. I can assure you of that.

There have been times when great things happened on earth; we see proof of that in ancient architecture that’s still standing today. During those times, there was a true leader. People were letting go of beliefs and rules because that was natural under a true leader’s vision. We were born knowing how to let go. But those times didn’t last because the occultists started working on a new plan to defeat us using their same old tricks. They gave people beliefs and false desires again just like the Serpent from thousands of years ago; and people started to follow them again. They turned away from the true leader because the false leader offered them freebies and the appearance of security or leisure time. Does that sound familiar?

The occultists gain lots of power once numbers of believers follow them. They don’t care what side of the occult the people are on because they sit above them on the clone throne. They don’t fight in the wars, they cause them and make money off of them. Over time, the illusion becomes very strong, it often looks like the end is near. We think that this time the occult will win. But they never do. However, they do change history so that we don’t know that they lost in the last apocalypse. When decoded the stories all say that the True Self wins in the end.

I know that I will win this battle, and my websites will come back. Maybe they will be in a different form, who knows. Let me assure you that a lot of very good things have happened during these seeming days of darkness where my sites have been up and down. Someone once said, “It is always darkest just before dawn.” When you want to quit letting go, just let go of one more thought and one more thought. Bringing about the end of suffering and unconditional love isn’t easy for any of us. So those of us who can let go have to do the heavy lifting right now. Nothing else can bring Heaven back to EARTH (note that EARTH and HEART share the same letters). Earth was meant to be a planet of unconditional love. Unconditional love produces effects that are win win for all. Unconditional love is a power that includes freedom, joy, peace, and health for all. I don’t know how to do anything else, and I’m not going to disappoint my five-year old self. So we’ll ride this wave until the seas become calm again.

The waiting that has been happening in the illusion has been trying for nearly everyone. People feel confused; they feel more than ever that they have lost security and comfort. They fear that their money will run out. Their fear of disease is at an all time high. They don’t know if the things they have depended on and the people they love will be there tomorrow. It’s a crazy time. They ask for help, and no has the answer. They pray for help, and no one answers their prayer. That’s what initiation looks like. What worked for us in the past no longer works. So we have to let go of our old ways of thinking so that new ideas can arise.

I do think that enough people see through the globalists, and they will soon become a memory. But that doesn’t mean that the earth is free of their way of thinking forever. The occult way of thinking will still be there; the Serpent will still work overtime to pull us into the next illusion with false promises. We have to become immune to such trickery. The occult way of thinking will be there until we decide that we aren’t settling for anything less than pure unconditional love. In ancient Egypt, there was a drawing of something called the “weighing of the heart ceremony.” I have a reproduction of it in my home. I love it because it is the secret to life in one very simple drawing. But it has been very wrongly interpreted by most people. It meant that only an initiate with a heart as light as a feather, meaning no second-cause beliefs and no judgment, was destined to lead. When that leader was in power as the visionary, earth would be like the field of reeds, or Heaven on Earth. It would be a creative paradise.

Taking Your Power Back By Playing a Game

Breaking through the wall

By Cathy Eck

 

FYI:  This is an advanced post that might not make sense if you’re new to letting go.

Stuck in Someone’s Beliefs

My blog readers aren’t heads of government, religions, or corporations.  They’re creative people who feel stuck in belief systems that were imposed upon them by others.  They often feel locked in a feminine role.

The majority of leaders and authority figures (even family leaders) see enemies and problems to be fixed in the people who play feminine roles beneath them.  They don’t realize that the problems and enemies they see actually exist ONLY in their own mind.  They speak as if the illusion that their mind created is real and true; it is for them.  We all see what we believe.  The false masculine thinks that its beliefs are God’s laws.  It rewards and punishes accordingly.

Our problems began when we believed our first false masculine leader or parent.  We began to see what they said we should see.  Life on earth has been this way for thousands of years.  It will change when we stop believing what others claim to see or know — when everyone admits that the Emperor is buck naked.

Here’s a game to help you escape the feminine role.  It’s challenging, and it’s designed to show you what to let go, to improve your discrimination, and to flip your mind back into the mental, True Self perspective.  Ultimately, we want letting go to become like driving — it’s mostly automatic.

 

The Game

See yourself in front of an audience consisting of difficult people from your life — people who judge you or want to control or fix you.  They can be people you know, authority figures, or imaginary people.  You can even invite God.  Let them speak one at a time.  Allow them to say what’s wrong with you or what you need to believe or be to please them.

I want you to see that what they say is their projection and their own level confusion.  Often they are looking only at what you are doing and judging their own beliefs about it.  Sometimes they don’t even see you.  Here’s an example:  One audience member looks at you and says, “You’re lazy.  You haven’t done anything lately.”  From the physical perspective, they’re right.  You’ve been doing lots of inner work.  But you aren’t allowed to tell them off, defend yourself, or react in this game.

First, you must recognize that they’re speaking from their physical perspective — the beliefs that form their illusion.   Notice how their comment feels to you.  You probably feel emotion; remember, the emotion means that what they said was FALSE.  If you take that emotion in and defend it, you enter their illusion.  You’re powerless because their illusion is a foreign land for you.  If you simply let go of their comment because it’s FALSE, your mind stays clear and free.

Take it slow.  You might feel lots of emotion regarding their comment.  You want to drain it all by witnessing it and remembering why you felt the emotion.  Don’t label the emotion anger, fear, or rage.  That just makes it real.  The emotion is simply saying that what they said was false.  That’s all!

You’ve been letting go a lot lately; and it’s true that you’re not doing much physical work.  But are you lazy?  Mentally, no.  In fact, mentally speaking, they’re lazy.  They haven’t let go of anything.  This is what frees you.  You see that they’re judging you from their physically oriented illusion.  They’re projecting their unwanted defect of mental laziness on you by confusing levels.  A person living from the mental perspective looks like an enemy to someone in the physically oriented illusion.  In the illusion, it’s all about what they see!

We all start life at the mental perspective; and as we accept physical perspective projections from others, we fall into their illusion.  By recognizing the error of the people who cast their stones upon us, we reverse our OWN fall.  Their fall is their problem.  Once you’re clear, you’ll have the words to explain yourself to them.  Or you’ll feel comfortable not responding at all.

 

Explain Yourself!

When we’re living from the mental point of view, we’re often asked by people in the illusion to explain ourselves.  People in the physical perspective don’t understand the mental perspective.  Often the only answer we have is that we did what felt right.  By untangling these two perspectives in your mind, you move out of right-wrong.  You no longer accept their projected judgment.  Their more limited physical perspective will only affect them if you let their beliefs go from your mind.

The trick to winning this game is to remember that what they say is what’s on their mind.  You must realize that neither their conviction, emotional projection, nor authority make their words true in the mental perspective.

Don’t go into their mind.   Keep watching your mind.  See what arises next.  In some instances, you’ll notice judgments toward them in your mind; and ideally, you’ll let them go even if they deserve the judgment.  If you let your judgments toward them go, you might just get to the True Self perspective and feel unconditional love for them.  You just see life from different perspective than they do.  Understanding cleans up that gap.  You’ll see them as powerless and lost — they’re in the fallen world.  You might want to help them, but you won’t want to fix them.  People fix others because they are afraid of them.  We help others because we care.

Your audience members can leave for two reasons:  1) They admit that they don’t want to let go; that’s fine but they must leave your mind (not necessarily your life).   2) They get it, and they let go.  They no longer belong in your audience of difficult people.  Your job is to clean out the entire audience.  That’s how you win the game.

Motivation…Creation…It’s Not All About Doing

Nuts turn into giant oak trees.

By Cathy Eck

 

What’s Motivation?

I hear it every day from someone. I have no desires..no motivation…I’m lazy…bored with life. I don’t know what to do.

The curse of the illusion is hard work.  Some do hard physical work.  Others do hard mental work in order to figure out how to avoid doing hard physical work.  People who seek freedom are sick of hard work.  We discover letting go; then we turn it into hard work.

The freedom we desire is freedom from the physically oriented, fallen perspective.  When we fell into the illusion, we accepted lots of beliefs that made creating very hard and slow.  We became feminine to a false God (a slave driver).  We became slaves of his system.  Doing became boring, routine, and uncreative.

The popularity of motivational speakers, prosperity preachers, and life coaches is proof that people aren’t in touch with their natural inner motivation.  They pump people up and generate lots of emotion by telling them what they want to hear.

However, what we want to hear is usually the opposite of what we believe.  So their motivation wears off quickly; our established beliefs usually win in the end.

 

Reward and Punishment

As we let go, we’re all a lot like my oldest child, who was imprisoned in the educational system for six years before I set him free with unschooling.  He’d already become institutionalized.  He was accustomed to outer direction and rewards.  I asked him to look inside for his true desires. He had no fucking clue how to do that.  He begged me to tell him what to do, but I didn’t.  Eventually, his desires for outer motivation, direction, reward, and punishment died since he stopped feeding them.  He was left with inner motivation after about two years of tears.

Inner motivation is different from outer motivation.  The True Self knows the future, without going to psychics.  It’s not going to learn cursive writing unless it plans to be a calligrapher or old fashioned letter writer, but it will learn texting or typing.

The True Self hates spoon-feeding and memorization.  It wants to understand and experience everything.  But most schools ruin that innate desire.  Children learn to walk with very little assistance. They absorb the understanding from someone who already knows how to walk; then they figure it out.  They don’t read “Walking for Dummies.”

When my children wanted to learn something new, I’d point them toward the inventors and innovators in their field of interest — people who found their own wisdom.  I wanted them to trust their own ideas and to see that true desires always seem crazy to others because they’re not their desires.

Most people memorize and copy what others have discovered.  There’s no life force in that.  Beliefs, traditions, stories, knowledge, and rituals get passed down from generation to generation.  It’s old and dull.  In the beginning, such information was minimal and useful — like how to make fire.  Now we pass down useless knowledge, political persuasions, and antiquated religious ideas.

It’s habitual.  In ancient times, dead ancestors were labeled Gods.  Few people in the past have questioned their ancestral teachings.  People got used to being told things that felt bad or sounded illogical.   Sacrificing our desires for the sake of keeping the family and collective illusions alive became normal.  We stopped discriminating when we heard something from an elder, teacher, or expert.  After awhile, we’d believe anything.

 

Creation

To understand true motivation, we must understand the creation process. Creation starts in our mind as an original idea.  We think about the idea, and it grows.  Eventually, we desire to share our idea because sharing gives it life.  Then we’re inspired to action. The whole process is organic and enjoyable if no beliefs get in the way.  But invariably beliefs do get in the way, and we lose our motivation unless we let those beliefs go.

IMG_0021

If our desire is true, we’ll be inspired toward the next step and the next step; but we might not know the final destination.  We might not have support from our mother or friends, but we’ll find support in the form of validation, clarity, or insight.

Roles disappear.  No one can impose their beliefs on us if we know the difference between the truth and a belief.  The world is a mess because people think their beliefs are true.  Then they spew their beliefs on others because they think everyone needs their truth.  We already share the truth; we’re born with it.  Beliefs must remain temporary and personal.  They support, rather than dominate, creativity.

 

Action

The false self is action driven toward rigidly-defined goals. It seeks rewards and avoids punishment.  It avoids the creative process because it’s focused on end results and approval. The True Self’s ideas often look risky to the false self.  Beliefs about insecurity arise along with a lot of emotion.  If we don’t let those beliefs go, we’ll find our inspiration too difficult to follow.

The key to living from our True Self is to focus on our own mind.  The false mind is always  in other people’s business.  It believes that it gains status by mentally or physically pushing others down below it with it’s knowledge and conviction.  It fears others stealing it’s ideas; it’s competitive.  The false self judges, debates, and takes sides.  I know these things look normal; but normal people are deep in the illusion.

We must get to the place where we’re always watching our mind, discriminating, and letting go.  Eventually, it becomes automatic.  Our false self is blindly obedient.  It will be obedient to others unless we retrain it to be obedient to our True Self.

Yea, when we live this way, we’ll look lazy, unmotivated, or too happy.  Others will think we’re playing too much.  That’s their problem.  Finding our True Self and expressing it is what we all really want.  It’s finding the kingdom of heaven and eating from the Tree of Life again.

Living the Masculine and Feminine Roles in Relationships

Earth as a mirror of our mind

By Cathy Eck

 

Getting Right Inside

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

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

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

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

 

Inner Relationships Create Outer Relationships

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Reality of Relationships

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The False Masculine Trick: The Punishing God

False masculine

By Cathy Eck

 

Adam and Eve

The key myth that pervades western religious thinking is Adam and Eve.  After their little apple incident, they were punished.  We’re erroneously left with the impression that Eve was completely to blame.  Poor victim Adam got dragged down with her.  We accept that God has the right to reward and punish them forever.  Welcome to the illusion!

The story appears to be about men and women, our ancestors.  After a talk on a cruise ship, a man told me that he traced his entire ancestry back to Adam and Eve.  He gave me a copy.  He was Mormon; he’ll believe anything.  He also told me that his friend was chosen to sacrifice himself for the Mormons; he died shortly after.  He thought his friend was special.  I would’ve labeled him gullible.

Like this man, we get tricked into believing illusions — stories that make God into a supernatural he-man.  He has a man cave extraordinaire in the clouds with a golden throne; he sits around all fucking day judging, punishing, cursing, and envying his crappy little minions.  People became afraid of this God because he told leaders to kill their enemy.  Their emotions should have told them their leader was lying, but we all make the same error when terrorized.  We get psychologically reversed to obey false Gods and false leaders.  We think they’re powerful when in truth they’re very weak; that’s why they’re lying.  Dah!

In time, Adam and Eve’s story became so incredibly powerful and widely accepted that no one questioned it.  We look at the world and see people hating, judging, and punishing in the name of God; we don’t realize that religious beliefs are the cause because we think religion has the truth (at least our religion does).  When people worship a false God of hate, judgment, and reward and punishment, they become that.  Then they cover what they’ve become with a mask.

You might say, “Holy shit, this false God guy actually sounds like my parents.”   We tend to construct our false God in the image and likeness of our parents.  Mom and dad are both masculine roles to children.  Moses did this too.  He projected his false God out on his followers, but his God was really his mom and dad inside of his own mind.  People become the same sort of authority they learned from as children.  Bullies have already been bullied.

If we realize that our parent’s judgments, ridiculous disciplinary measures, and lack of trust in our True Self was false, we let ourselves off the hook.  We don’t say our parents did the best they could.  We recognize that they were tricked; we no longer believe them.  We no longer accept their judgment or punishment.  We’re no longer limited by their false thinking.  Their imaginary role in our life loses its false power.

 

Masculine and Feminine 

Adam and Eve isn’t about a man and woman.  It’s a story about roles.  This story replaced the original purpose of our false self, which was to hold information and short-term beliefs necessary for creation.  Now our false self holds the template for false roles that support a blindly obedient society where the majority function as slaves in support of few elite.

We now accept that the masculine role has the right to judge, punish, curse, and envy without the natural punishment of feeling emotions.  We feel no emotion when we think, say, or do something false once we hold false beliefs as the truth.

This created the psychological reversal extraordinaire that causes people to believe religion (it isn’t a gene).  A normal person, without this reversal, would feel emotion when they judge, suicidal when they punish or curse, and sad when they envy another.  They’d avoid the false masculine role because it’s too damn emotionally painful.  But avoiding the masculine causes us to get stuck in the feminine role with no way out — the double bind (catch 22).  It sucks.  The illusion offers no exit to freedom.  It doesn’t hold the possibility of the True Self because the True Self is the natural blend of the masculine and feminine (God and Goddess).

As people let go, they no longer believe authority figures.  They view them as false, not powerful.  They realize that feeling emotion (honoring their feminine) when a leader speaks means the leader is speaking false; they don’t obey them.  Eventually, they boot out religion’s false God and Moses; they can’t worship false leadership.

They move naturally into the masculine role.  But, they must catch their own false God within, or they will become the false masculine they hated.  Most people have an inner false masculine who’s very accomplished at projection.  We don’t realize when we’re in the false masculine role because we feel relief from leaving the feminine role.  We think we’re our True Self.  We’re not!

This is why it’s so hard for people to get free.  The false masculine feels a lot better than the oppressed feminine role; but it isn’t freedom.  It’s what creates teachers, preachers, inspirational speakers, and gurus.  They believe that if everyone thought like them, the world would be perfect.  The True Self wants everyone to be themselves.  The True Self doesn’t want followers.  The psychological reversal of the false masculine causes us not to feel emotions when judging, rewarding and punishing, or envying others.  The false masculine thinks it’s right when it’s false.  In fact, the false masculine hates the True Self because truth exposes it.  The truth sets us free of the false masculine!

When we understand this, we understand Jesus words on the cross, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.”  The false masculine has no idea it’s projecting.  On the cross means stuck in the feminine role; some people spend their entire life on the cross as martyrs or victims.  The false God loves a good sacrifice; it’s his entertainment while he smokes his cigar, drinks his brew, and counts his money on his golden throne.

The Game: Falling In and Digging Ourselves Back Out

Game

By Cathy Eck

 

Tricks and Traps in The Game

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

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

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

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

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

 

Reasons The False Trapped Your Ass Again

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

It’s a Game

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

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

How to Make It Our Own — Find Our Place in the World

Nicola Steffanina

By Cathy Eck

 

People often ask me, “If we want to do what you do, how can we make it our own?”  That’s tricky to answer because you can’t make what I do your own; that’s not how life works.

In the illusion, we think that becoming a practitioner or teacher of information/knowledge is the purpose of life.  But that’s a false-self purpose.  It never provides the freedom, joy, or harmony with others that we want.

 

UNIQUE POINT OF VIEW

Like so many other topics, we must blame level confusion.  Everyone’s purpose is to first find their True Self.  Then we have our own answers to everything we need or want to know.  We aren’t interested in other people’s knowledge anymore; we sure as hell don’t want to teach or practice it.  What I do is original for me; however, it becomes knowledge for anyone else because it isn’t their own.  We must first remember our own unique point of view by letting go of our false self.  Then ironically, we won’t want to make what someone else does “our own” anymore.

I mentor people who want to write.  I recommend they write whatever they’re thinking.  If it isn’t original, then they take a sentence/paragraph, let go of the beliefs around what they wrote, they rewrite, and let go again.  If they keep doing that over and over, they’ll eventually find their OWN voice.  When our writing, art, music, inventions, decorating, etc. come from our True Self, they’ll carry the stamp of our unique point of view.

 

MAKE IT OUR OWN — MENTAL LEVEL

Sometimes, people try to find their own expression by taking a little from this teacher and a little from that teacher.  That isn’t their own.  We aren’t compilations of other people’s minds; that’s a false self.  We can’t learn to be our True Self.

Often people ask about combining what I do with Reiki, therapy, religion, or something else.  That will never work — never — never.  Those are all belief systems.  If we completely let go, we’ll let those belief systems go too.  Letting go takes us in the opposite direction of almost everything else because we’re going for the cause; that can be confusing.

 

BRIDGE CAREER

Sometimes we need what I call bridge careers.  My blogging/mentoring is my bridge career for now.  It pushes me to keep letting go and pays the bills.

Let’s say you’re a hands-on healer.  You could continue your work while letting go of the disease labels that people bring you to heal.  Eventually, you’ll find that you want to mentor people because you don’t want them to think the hands-on stuff is doing the work.  Then one day, you might drop mentoring too.  Our careers naturally evolve as we let go.

 

MAKE IT OUR OWN — PHYSICAL LEVEL

At the mental level, to “make it our own” means to be our True Self.  Done!

At the physical level, our True Self uses our knowledge and talents.  What we do provides the channel for our unique True Self perspective to flow into the material world.  For example, there’s a San Diego physicist turned comedian who does humorous Powerpoint presentations.  He has a unique perspective of physics; the audience gets a hilarious class in physics.

My mentoring is almost never about the words or techniques that I use; it’s about reaching others where they are and finding a way to convince them that what they’re thinking is false so they’ll let go.  Another person could do the same techniques and speak my words and wouldn’t get results because they still believe the illusion is true.  It’s the True Self perspective that makes it work.

My oldest son (below) DOES hip-hop dance, choreography, and videography.  His True Self bleeds through his doing; he sees a world with everybody dancing so he has a free dance channel on YouTube so people of any age or any place can learn to dance.  Everybody wins.

My daughter (above) is a horse trainer; since she was a young child she’s rescued animals, but never with a victim mentality.  They come to her to find their true home.  Now she takes in horses that no one wants, rejuvenates them, finds and embellishes their gifts, then sells them for a profit to good homes.  Everybody wins.

Matt Steffanina

There’s no shortage of hip-hop dancers or horse trainers.  They do something quite ordinary in a unique way to fill a gap in the world that only they seem to see.  That gap created their desire; and following that desire got them into their perfect place in the world.

 

WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY?

The next question is usually,  “What about the money?”  I researched for fifteen years and blogged for over a year without making money from it.  I was inspired to do it.  I took what I call dumb jobs.  Then someone said, “Would you mentor me?”  I said, “Yes;” and mentoring was born.  Then another person said, “I’d like to give you a donation.”  So I learned how to add a PayPal button to my blog.  I do retreats when people ask for a way to meet others of like mind.  I listen to requests and questions; and I attempt to fill the requests in a win-win way.  My son’s and daughter’s businesses grew exactly the same way.  I call it organic growth.  You become yourself and express who you are; then you find the place where you’re wanted or needed.

Here’s where things get interesting.  I would write if no one read my writing.  It what I love to do.  My children would do what they do.  When we do things from our True Self, it’s life giving in the being and doing.   Belief systems, on the other hand, die without lots of believers and constant attention and support.  They need people to feed the dragon because the dragon is very hungry–that’s not win-win.  We’re switching an old paradigm; that’s not easy.  But, one day, people will only pay True Selves.  I promise it.

Redefining Success the True Self Way

Judgment Day

By Cathy Eck

 

Success and Heaven on Earth

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

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

 

Success as a Currency

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

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

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

 

Success Defined Correctly 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Your Turn

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

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

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

Testing to See if a Desire is True

Is my desire true

By Cathy Eck

Desire

You’ve got this nagging desire that just won’t go away.  How do you know if it’s really a good desire to pursue?   Is it a True Self desire?  Or is it a false trap that will just get you in deep doo doo?

Or you’re mentally stuck with two seemingly equal choices.  How do you choose?

 

True Desires

Let’s review what I’ve discussed before.  A desire from your True Self will feel calm and peaceful.  You’ll enjoy thinking about it so long as you don’t start thinking about the fact that you don’t have it or start trying to figure out how to get it.  If you do that, you’ll feel emotional excitement.

A True Desire won’t solve a problem.  The True Self doesn’t know about problems.  True Self desires don’t fix effects; they’re creative in nature.

The most important test of all — it will be win-win for you and everyone on the planet.  No one will feel diminished, nor will their True Self be harmed by fulfillment of this desire.  It’s okay if their false self gets a little shaken up.

 

Deserving

The big block to fulfilling desires is frequently related to deserving or worthiness.  Often successful people thank God for their success, “Look what God gave me,” they say as they accept the award given to them by “humans.”  They often add, “You can do it too.”  They’re hoping we won’t judge their extraordinary success.  The truth is that they made choices and had beliefs that led to that success that would make sense if we could read their mind.

In the end, it’s much kinder to say to someone, “I happened to find something that lots of people want or need,” rather than, “God gave me this because I deserve it.”  The first leaves the listener with a proper understanding of the winner’s path to success.  The second leaves the listener wondering what’s wrong with them.  We’ve often been that listener, which has led to the confusion we feel around deserving.

Astrology was one of the first ways that false deserving was created.  “Look it’s on my chart that I am to rule this land.  Fuck you guys!”  Now we use it to justify being an ass.  “I can’t help but be stubborn, I’m a Taurus.”  Astrology was also made by men, not God.

Along the same line, some people go to psychics to tell them if they’re deserving.  Some use divining tools to make decisions.  Some look for signs and signals.  Some are called, which is really funny.  Who’s calling?  Dah!  Ring, ring, it’s your false self!

The bottom line is that if we desire it, and it’s a true desire, we deserve it.  And there is a way to get it….letting go of the beliefs that stand in the way.

 

Saved By a Pendulum

I cured myself of the desire dilemma after I learned the art of dousing or divining.  I thought it was insanely cool.  I found the well site on my property.  I often made great decisions using the pendulum.  I was a pendulum master.  One day, I paid attention to my mind while doing it.  I was mentally directing the pendulum to spin, and my body translated it into subtle, undetectable movements.  When I just watched my mind, I could see that I was hoping for a particular answer.  That was my desire, dah!  Or at times, my mind was afraid of the answer.  Again, I could see my real desire, but now I could see that I believed it was impossible.  Or I feared I’d pay for my desired choice later on.  My emotions were far superior; they gave me truly insightful feedback.  I ditched the pendulum.

Let’s say, I wanted to know if I would get a contract or a house I loved.  Those were stupid questions.  The answer was more complex, “If I’d let go of my doubt and beliefs about not getting the contract, I’d get it.”  “If I’d stop listening to the advice of experts, I’d get the house.”  I could drill down and decide what to let go by just asking and feeling for emotional feedback.

I was going through all of this pendulum trouble because I feared people questioning my deserving.  The pendulum was like saying, “God gave me permission to have what I want.”  People convinced me that God was moving the pendulum.  But that was a lie.  I was moving it.  I realized that I was embarrassed by my creative capacity.  I was afraid of being judged by people who were prideful of their suffering.  Others in my life believed that if God didn’t call me, I wasn’t allow to move forward.  But God didn’t know my number because God was only calling people to support his crazy illusion.  I didn’t listen to that God…he made me want to barf.  The other God, that Creator from Genesis I, he was resting…taking a long nap.  I imagined what he would say…

“What are you asking me for?  I gave you a piece of me — your True Self.  You’re a creator.  Create what’s inspiring to you and harmonious with my other kids.  I will be in every one of your creations.  However, if you create in a way that’s harmful to your brothers and sisters, I won’t be around to watch.  You’re on your own, kiddo.  I’ll always love you, but if you fuck up, I’ll miss you.”

 

The Lesson

Think about flipping that coin or asking your Magic Eight Ball what you want to know?  Just do it in your mind.  Notice what you’re hoping for.  That’s your answer.  Now check out that answer.  Is it win-win for everyone who’s a True Self?  Does it feel calm?  Is it creative.  You have your answer!  If it meets those tests, it’s True.  Now you can focus on letting go of all the beliefs that stand in the way.

 

 

 

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.

 

Respect: R-E-S-P-E-C-T, You Must Drop It To Get Free!

Respect

By Cathy Eck

 

Respect

We’re trained to give respect to others at a young age.  We’re told to respect our elders, teachers, preachers, experts, authority figures, and people of a higher class even if they harm others or give us false beliefs.  We train children to respect the false self when we’re naturally hard-wired to respect only the True Self.  This is what flips our emotions so they no longer keep us on track.  To get free, we have to reverse this training.   It isn’t easy.  We have to give up wanting false respect and stop giving undeserved respect to others.  When we don’t follow society’s rules of respect, however, people see us as bad or wrong.

Normal respect happens when someone expresses their True Self.  They love us unconditionally or see who we really are.  They do something creative or demonstrate an amazing talent.  It’s like applause or appreciation.  It’s a temporary nod of thanks for sharing something beautiful, true, or pure with us.  But even those experiences should only generate temporary respect.

False respect is a robot-like response based on mental programming.  False respect is defined by illusory social standards, qualifications, or rules.  False respect is often considered permanent once we qualify for it.  If we have been given the magic wand of false respect, we can be a jerk and people will still have to listen to us and believe us.  This is how dictators get so much power.

 

Unnatural Respect

We can’t worship two masters.  We can’t live as a True Self while worshipping or believing false selves.  What we do on the outside mirrors what we’re doing on the inside.  If we’re listening to false selves outside of us, we also respect our own false self.  We disrespecting our True Self and God.

Unnatural respect is all about one thing and one thing only.  It serves to keep people in the masculine role who don’t deserve it.  We don’t question them or their beliefs.  We shut down our discrimination.  We give them the same power in our mind that we’d naturally give our True Self: but unfortunately, they don’t deserve that position.

 

Level Confusion

Sadly, we have infused respect with level confusion.  Ideally, our True Self would inspire all of our actions.  Other people might give us ideas or teach us things, but our choices would come from inside of us.  When choices come from our True Self, they’re always win-win for all; the True Self never harms or diminishes another.

However, when someone plays their “respect me” card, we don’t believe that we can say, “No,” because the authority figure has a pedigree, knowledge, or a role.  They didn’t earn our respect.  This is often hard to see.  We confuse the knowledgeable or privileged false self with the wise, omnipotent True Self.  We believe their authority is earned, but it isn’t.  Often the people with the most rules and beliefs are placed in positions of authority.  Unnatural respect slams us into the feminine role underneath false leaders.  Then we feel powerless to reclaim what’s rightfully ours.

 

FEAR…FEAR…and more FEAR

When we recognize that people who said they loved us were operating from win-lose beliefs, we naturally lose our false respect for them.  That makes sense.  We feel bad because we want to respect everyone.  But false selves don’t deserve respect.  If we look below the urge to obey them, we’ll find the fear, the beliefs, and the rules that need to go.

As we let go, we hear the voices of the people who have controlled our mind.  We must stand firm and discriminate, but our automatic reaction is usually to just obey or try to keep the peace.  We must do our best to only give respect to our own True Self, and that means disrespecting false selves no matter how much they scare or threaten us.  We have to let them go.  When we completely let the false voices within go, the people without lose their power as well.  It’s like we become invisible to them.

Finally, we’ve cleared out our OWN mind; we now deserve natural respect.  We no longer judge.  We think in win-win ways.  We’ve lost our fear.  We love our mind.  But the people around us don’t give us natural respect.  They’re still listening to and respecting false selves because they’re afraid not to.  This can be the worst stage of all.  We’ve worked so hard to reconnect with our wisdom and truth, and people think we’re full of shit because we aren’t saying what the false selves say.  It’s tempting to turn back, and I suspect many do.  Some get stuck in anger at this stage when people in their lives ask them to prove themselves; the people should ask their false authorities for justification but they’re afraid of their false authorities.

In these moments, we’re facing the earliest moments in childhood when we accepted the illusion because we believed we had no choice.  We couldn’t go off on our own; we were too young.  We’re remembering being small and yet knowing the truth, but no one understood or heard us.  Maybe we couldn’t even talk yet, but we felt emotion when something was false.  We cried.  For some, that was pretty much all the time.  Why didn’t they feel the same emotions?  Why did they demand our respect?  Why were we seen as bad or wrong?

If you allow this  sadness, powerlessness, and despair to erupt and listen as your beliefs arise, you’ll realize that you accepted beliefs about the world, yourself, and other people that weren’t true.  Listen, as your beliefs rise into your mind.  Realize they all generate strong emotion so they’re false; notice that they aren’t win-win for everyone.  Let them go.  You’re no longer a powerless child.  You did nothing wrong.  You were just an innocent True Self.  People who didn’t remember who they were saw you as flawed.  They were wrong.  You can let their error go now and be free.

Problems: The Gift that Keeps on Taking in the Illusion

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

By Cathy Eck

 

Problems?

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

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

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

 

Fixing and Breaking

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Lesson

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

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

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

Help! I Can’t Find the F***ing Causal Belief

Beliefs can't find the cause

By Cathy Eck

 

Not a day goes by that I don’t hear, “Help Cathy, I can’t find my fucking belief.  I know it’s there because my life sucks or my body is screaming in pain.  But I can’t find the belief.”  There are many reasons why this happens.  Shit, I sometimes say it to myself.  Here are some of the most obvious and common reasons and fixes:

 

1)  The belief is hiding under what I call a “protector” belief.  Our false mind wants to live forever; it fears death and exposure.  When the protector is on duty, our mind is generating thoughts like:  “I can’t find the belief.”  “This is too hard.”  “I can’t do this.”  Those are protector beliefs that guard the causal belief.  Our false mind is trying to get us to stop letting go.  If we let go of these distracting protective beliefs, the causal belief often can be seen.

2)  The belief looks like it’s absolutely true.  It could be a belief that we’ve had forever.  It might be a collective belief that we know nearly everyone else believes.  It might be a belief that has created in our reality many times.  Remember, our reality up until this second was created by that causal belief.  If we let it go completely, our reality will change.  It has to.  An example of such a belief is, “Dad will never change.” Yes, that has been true until now, but it’s a belief.  Dad does have a True Self; and if we connect with that True Self, he can change.  These beliefs tend to feel like walls that we can’t get around until we go through them.

3)  We can’t bear to feel anymore emotion, so we keep distracting ourself.   Beliefs generate emotion.  Long standing beliefs are laced with lots of emotion.  Our false mind will try to tell us that the emotion means the belief is true; it’s lying.  That’s its job.  Sometimes, we just have to face the belief and all that emotion with courage.  We have to outlast it.  We’re becoming masters of our minds.  It isn’t the easiest thing we’ve ever done.   It can be like a war; and we need to win every battle.

4)  We’re still feminine to the person who inserted the belief into our mind.  We have physical symptoms, and we can hear the doctor’s voice saying the diagnosis.  We feel emotion when we hear his/her words, but we still view the doctor as powerful and knowing.  We fear going to hell, and we know it’s false; but we still view our mother or the priest as our authority.  To be free, we must have no masters other than our True Self.  This is about letting go of false gods.  Our True Self always has an answer and always knows what’s right for us.  But if we’re listening to others, we won’t hear it.  Often we hear religious voices saying listen to God.  Our True Self is God.  The voices we hear in our mind that sound like mom, dad, and the priest/preacher are false gods.

5)  We’ve got a conditioned response that masks the belief.  For example, we have a saying that we use to sooth ourself like, “Everything happens for a reason.”  “God has a plan.”  Or we do something conditioned like go for a run or kneel and pray.  Our conditioned responses show us what we believe.  We do them to ease the emotion (fix the effect) that the active belief is spewing.  Get rid of the belief, and we no longer need to fix the effect.

6)  We want to keep the belief.  Often our belief has a payoff.  We want to get rid of the pain, but we get a lot of attention for it.  We don’t like drama, but it’s how we relate to our friends; and we want to star on a reality television show.  I’ve worked with actors who believe they need their past emotions to act; they don’t, but try to tell them that.  We can’t hold on and let go at the same time.  Sometimes freedom is simply a choice.

7)  We feel no emotion when thinking an unwanted thought.  We’ve hit a psychological reversal.  So switch directions.  Think the opposite.  For example, you keep thinking, “I don’t make enough money.”  There’s no emotion.  It just feels like harsh reality.  So switch to the positive side of it.  “I make all the money I need.”  Ah, the emotion comes pouring out saying, “Good try.  That was a false line if I ever heard one.”  Many of us are painfully honest people.  We speak about reality too much.  My advice on that is to talk less, let go more.  The reality will shift; then you can talk again.

8)  We’re in other people’s minds.  We’re looking at what another said or did and wondering about their thinking when what matters is our thinking.  A man cuts us off in traffic.  We wonder why he did that?  That keeps us from watching our own mind.  We don’t notice that we have fear of bad drivers or judge angry people because our energy and attention is devoted to the driver’s mind.  Bring your attention back to your thinking.  Western meditation is great for this.  Their thinking is their own problem.

9)  We’re reasoning.  We don’t need a reason for why something happened.  What we need is the causal belief.  If  we’re reasoning, we’re too much in our logical false masculine mind.  If we drop into feeling, and just witness our emotions while listening to our thoughts, we’ll find the causal belief in our mind, which is the only reason we need.

 

The biggest trap is looking at what normal people do and thinking we can do that too and get free.  Most people, regardless of what they say they want, are on the express train to hell.  We have to remember that fitting in means riding the hell-bound train.  Freedom means getting off at the next stop.

 

 

Labels: The Seeming True Self Destroyer (Part I)

Ambigram NO Labels NO Lies

By Cathy Eck

 

NO LABELS, NO LIES

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that beliefs are disruptive lies that come disguised as the truth.  That’s why we accept them into our mind without discriminating.  We give others our beliefs with the intention of controlling or helping them because we can’t see beyond the belief to recognize that it’s false.  Labels are simply a collection of beliefs that we either hate or love.  Like beliefs, we often accept them without discrimination.

To escape the illusion, we must have precision in our words.  That precision supports us in seeing the difference between something illusory and something true.  The triangle process is a good way to develop word precision.  It helps us get real and identify what’s truly happening when words are exchanged.

The meaning of words is often reversed or confused in the illusion.  Beliefs are treated as if they’re true.  The false God is treated as the Creator; occult is confused with initiation.  Goodness, in the illusion, becomes obedience to authority.  Winning morphs into success when another loses.  The illusion is all about level confusion.

Labels beg for word precision.  If you don’t have word precision, you confuse and harm others.  We do to others what was done to us until we recognize that what was done to us was false.  People in the illusion label people for eternity.  They say, “You’re incurable.”  You’re a victim of wackadoodle disease.”  “You’re an idiot.”  “You’re ugly.”  “You’re fat.”  “You’re a Smith and will always be a Smith.”  “You’re an Asian, gay, or Hispanic.”  The one label that would not harm us, we rarely use, “You’re a human being.”

Labels also go the other direction, which is just as bad and more seductive.  “You’re a genius.”  “You’re beautiful.”  “You’re the Dali Lama.”  “You’re a saint.” or “You’re an old soul.”

Then there are the labels that we give ourselves.  After I sold my technology business, I decided I wanted to go naked — not without clothes — without labels.  People would, of course, ask me what I did.  I’d say, “Nothing.”  No one could accept that.  “Are you a housewife?  A mother?  A retiree?  A homeless person?  A fucking antisocial idiot?”  They wanted me to own a label dammit.

Eventually, we figure that if we’re going to get labeled anyway, we’d better label ourself.  “I’m an artist.”  “I’m a Muslim.”  “I’m a sufferer of wackadoodle disease.”  You watch, someone labeled hypochondriac will think they have that disease!  “I’m a fighter for truth.”  “I’m an engineer.”  “I’m shy.”  The very way we speak labels by saying “I am” or “You are” gives them permanence, making change difficult or impossible.

 

Labels Can Feel Like Murder

We must choose our wording carefully when discussing labels.  When someone asks what I do?  I answer in a temporary way.  Currently I mentor people and write.  In that way, I’m not defined by my current activity.  But our friends and family are often unkind and more permanent in choosing their labels.  They say,  “You’re so…..  You’re a ……  You always …..  You never…..”  They believe that what they see in us is true; it’s not.

I learned to watch my language carefully in business.  If I defined someone by their errors, I’d destroy a very good employee.  With my children, I learned the same lesson.   I didn’t want to ruin my perfect child.  In the masculine role, I had to discriminate between true and false constantly.  It took lots of practice.  We all behave as false selves at times.  We live in a fucking false world.  That’s reality.  But that isn’t who we are.

I learned that the truth looked like this, “You’re acting irresponsible today.”  The person was acting in a false way.  If it was my projection, the situation went away.  I avoided breaking my precious mirror.  If they were asking for help without knowing it, I offered help.  Often people do shitty things to us or behave in ridiculous ways because they’re asking for help without knowing it.  Letting go and then speaking in this way healed 80% of the situations.  The others were not correctable by me because they showed me something that they were reflecting for someone else in their life.  They wanted me to fix their handler; and I couldn’t do that.  But I could help them let go from the feminine role.

But one caution, this isn’t about saying the prettier words.  It’s about knowing the person isn’t inherently what they’re doing in this moment.

 

You Are vs. You Are Acting

You are acting… is a statement that opens the door to discover causal beliefs.  We can’t fix or find the cause of a problem if we think the problem is true — truth is immortal.  We don’t make friends or love someone by labeling them in a permanent way with “You are…”  We put them up against a wall when we do that.  No one can fix or change the truth.  We must admit something is false to let it go.  That is the secret of letting go.  Knowing that the words we thought or heard weren’t true.

If a doctor says, “You’re incurable,” find a new doctor.  If a teacher labels you ADD, get a new teacher.  If your preacher projects his sin on you, for God’s sake run like hell and find your True Self.  Sadly, people marinate in the soupy projection  of false masculine roles until they believe that the stone cast upon them was deserved.  It changes them forever and locks them into the illusion without an exit.  The only way to escape the label is to realize that it’s false.   We were just not acting like ourselves.  Or the person who said it was seeing their own reflection.

Once we realize that we’re just an actor, we can release the role we’ve played.  We can return to our own life path and find the happy ending to OUR own story.  We don’t have to live with our labels anymore.

We’re Not Followers or Seekers; But Leaders Don’t Want Us To Know

Leaders and followers

By Cathy Eck

 

The “One”

Followers and seekers of truth often write to me to ask me to confirm that their guru, teacher, preacher, or motivational speaker is the “One.”  I get lots of videos and book suggestions.  You only have to watch five minutes or read the first chapter to find the beliefs.  False leaders usually have good intentions.  They truly believe they’re helping others, but they create confusion in their followers because they don’t understand the True and false self (the term soul combined the two), they’re confused by masculine and feminine roles, or they’re still stuck in some version of good and evil.  They’re trying to fix the illusion (false self), not let it go.

I don’t like receiving those emails because I can’t give the writer the answer that they want to hear.  Invariably their guru/teacher/preacher is a very strong voice in their mind.  Often they fear letting that voice go.

I suspect they hope that I can resolve the dissonance in their mind.  I can’t, and I know that.  In fact, I can only make their dissonance worse.   If they want freedom, I’ll point them in the right direction.  If they want to prove their false leader is right, they’ll try to get me to follow him or her.

The unacknowledged desire of all false selves is to be more powerful than the True Self so it will submit.  As we listen to our past leaders’ voices within, we’ll find that motive; if we let that false-self motive go, our True Self can discriminate again.  Every false leader gives beliefs to their followers; beliefs are only knowledge, not wisdom.

The journey of initiation requires only one belief — you can let all beliefs go by knowing they’re false.  You’ll then discover everything else in your own perfect way.

 

Leaders and Followers

Following is natural only because we’re born helpless.  We have no choice but to assume the feminine role as a child.

Followers are playing a false feminine role; the other side of the bottom of the triangle is the leader.  Our false mind tricks us by taking the false leader and putting them at the top of the triangle, replacing our True Self.  Followers only need one core belief to keep them stuck in their role — that they don’t have the answers they need — the answer is outside of them; someone else has it.  This causes them to run to experts of all kinds, but the most insidious is the spiritual expert.  We’re born spiritual.  We don’t need to learn spirituality or the truth.  We only need to learn practical knowledge for an earthly skill — like how to type or read.

Followers’ or seekers’ lives turn into mysteries that can’t be solved.   The True Self, what they’re searching for, doesn’t have a role in the illusion.  At best, they can find a clone of a True Self.  People do project their True Self on leaders and teachers; false ones take it and run with it.  They don’t like to give it back; this can make letting go hard.  I don’t like when someone attempts to project their True Self on me; I feel like they’re trying to get me to validate their false self.  Once projected, the True Self becomes false — it’s actually annoying.  I’m only serving a small leadership role in the illusion as the tour guide.  I know the holes and dangerous beasts lurking in the bushes.  Nothing I offer is spiritual — but it’s really practical.

What we’re looking for in another (guru/teacher) or an object (Holy Grail/Ark of the Covenant) or a place (Shambala/ Atlantis) is our seemingly lost True Self.   We come to think this mystery is our life purpose — we all love a good story.  But our True Self gets anxious; it came here to create, not play “Hide and Go Seek.”

Leaders and teachers who tell followers what to think are everywhere.  We project our healing power on to healers and doctors.  Some people talk to aliens, angels, or ancestors to get what sounds like truth.  Some go to psychics or astrologers.   Some go on vision quests or long journeys.  Some join cults or brotherhoods.  And some use the old standby, religion.  A huge New Age business has developed around the sale of crystals and other “spiritual” paraphenalia.  Drugs are the gateway for many that appear to provide a glimpse of the True Self.  Sex addictions exist because the human orgasm stops the mind temporarily.  Practices are said to get us to God.  We’re looking for anything that rings true; and when we hear even a few true words or feel a moment of peace, we hold on to that person or thing.  This only makes it more difficult for us to find the real truth we so desperately desire.  We fear letting the false teacher or thing go because we believe it’s all we have.  But, it’s just our false self bullshitting us again.

 

Atlantis

Jesus warned people of false teachers, but the words that really spoke to me were Plato’s words from “Critias” about the destruction of Atlantis. My clarifications are in brackets. “…But when the divine portion [of man’s mind] began to fade away, and became diluted too often and too much with the mortal admixture [the ingredients of the false self], and the human nature got the upper hand, they then [leaders], being unable to bear their fortune [too big for their own britches], behaved unseemly; and to him who had an eye to see grew visibly debased, for they were losing the fairest of their precious gifts; but to those who had no eye to see the true happiness [those fucking believers again], they [false leaders] appeared glorious and blessed at the very time when they were full of avarice and unrighteous power.”  His words still apply today; nothing much has changed.  As you let go, you can see the false power — the ice cream coating melts.  All that’s left is a big pile of manure.
