Are we wrong?


th-2.jpg

It’s in the searching for answers that we become so desperate that we accept what is almost right or we overlook what we know to be wrong in a “it’s going to be ok”, kind of way. We will turn off our internal truth marker just to “make things work”. Such a waste of our time. If that feeling of wrongness is set into your craw and you are ignoring it for whatever reason, sickness is around the corner be it physical, mental, or spiritual. Take my word for it. Especially, if someone is telling you it will all be fine!

I just watched a movie called Holy Hell, it’s a documentary about a cult in California. I’ve become very interested in cults because of my own near miss with several. The questioning mind seeks answers and under duress will see what is presented rather than what our internal truth monitor tells us. Worse are the straight up lies a “spiritual”leader will tell. In this documentary this leader was found to be having sex with the men rather than the women. All the while proclaiming celibacy as a path to enlightenment. Right!!!

This person is a hypnotherapist and exceedingly good at mind control. All of the students were to take sessions with him at a cost “of course” and during these sessions he would begin the grooming process of his next victim. He had a different boy for different days and times and “of course” these relationships were sacred and special. This is the exact same thing I have heard over and over again whether it’s women or men the “teacher” grooms his victims to their special-ness. I mean really who when searching for truth from a “teacher” doesn’t want to be seen as “special”.

Google spiritual teachers/leaders and watch the people sitting around the “teacher”. It’s not normal to have that level of awe for another human, because THEY ARE HUMAN! We are to bow down to no one but the master in our hearts.

This world breaks my heart. Because in the world of spirituality it’s not just a grooming for sex that draws this same outcome of loss of self. Some people are told to leave their families and break all ties with them. In some, it’s give all your money to the cause, work for the cause, all in the name of God or the teacher or whatever is set before them. Young girls given in marriage to the leader, middle aged people worked like slaves until their usefulness is done and so is their money. The horror!

What the HELL is going on…

We are wrong! It’s never right to serve any master but ourselves. Spirituality is to teach we are our own master because the Divine is within us. When a grown person gives up their power to serve a master outside of themselves that’s one thing but when someone else makes that decision for someone else, the karma… special level of hell and so on…

There is no other answer than maintaining self responsibility and here also is where we have tripped up. When we truly believe another human’s truth over our own common sense, even when we have glitter in our eyes by the beauty of the teacher, someone should slap us out of our revelry. In old days it would have been seen as black magic, isn’t it? Oh that’s right we don’t believe in magic, or Satan, or the devil, much less God.

We are wrong if we believe a human has answers for us, because the true teacher/leader takes you to where your answers exist. Some of us need leading and hand holding that’s fine but a teacher or integrity will never say I’m always right, how can they be…THEY ARE HUMAN.

We are here on planet Earth to learn and the only real truth is the one you discover for yourself. We are wrong if we believe anyone knows our truth, only the Divine knows because we were created by the creative force and this same force is not going to force you to believe it, you may and we do learn for ourselves.

Practice promoting your own internal truth monitor, teach your children well and if someone’s “master/teacher” has a hold over a loved one, pray your ass off and keep telling them they are wrong until they reach out to you because you love them and you will have been the only one telling them. Eventually truth wins, truth always wins!

 

 

Lift your head

I see a lot of drop necks now, people staring at their device rather than heads up, eyes forward. Most young people will tell you looking down at their device rarely causes them to run into things, of course statistical odds haven’t caught up with most of them, yet. They don’t quite get what the big deal is anyway. They just don’t know what an evolutionary coup it was to get that frontal lobe. The ability to think and have complex thought, awesome and then boom, we forget the importance of the neck. The neck is where the nerves carrying the brains impulse signals move. Time spent bending the neck makes the communication bridge between the brain and the body divided and unable to move information.

What once was an ease of communication from your brain to the rest of your nervous system has become the playground for disregard. Go ahead bend your neck all day long it won’t matter! Yah it matters, it can cause your body skeletal issues from chronic neck pain to a possible hump on the back. Constantly change the position of a fixed flexible bone all the way through the brittle years of middle age and your posture will change, you will get shorter and your spine one day will be stooped. On top of what can happen physically the constant bent neck most certainly impedes signals produced in your brain to get where they need to go to keep your mental self in check.

Remember what happens when you put a rubber band around a finger, we use to do that as kids, cuts off circulation take off the band circulation restored. The same action is going on in the neck on a different scale, the constant bending the neck restricts nervous impulse from moving freely, this is minimal during regular neck use but think about it, your kid spends an hour on their phone, looking down, they walk the streets looking down, they sit on the bus, in the car, everywhere looking down. How is it that what took eons of evolutionary time, learning to look up and stand upright, allowing the light to stimulate the frontal lobe and the masters glands of the body, to allowing us to lose it by continually looking down? Are we really getting smarter with all this looking down or is it stealing our chance for experience and growth?

Are we slaves to our devices and are the masters pleased with their control?

Even if one argued that using intuition to see both up and out while looking down does make someone ahead of the game, it still leaves the disrupted signal dominant, you are not playing with a full deck. Once a nerve is pinched, or the original pathways moved, you are not the same and something has to compensate.

I think it might be time to think about why we are giving up the evolutionary advantage to looking up. Keep the neck free of kinks so that all information moving through the spine can be utilized. The communication highway through the neck is developed and moves through the physical but it also includes spiritual impulses as well. But what would be the point of having advanced spiritual thought if the vessel you are in is trapped in animalistic behavior because you chose to look down blocking off the frontal lobes ability to sense light and communicate with a higher vibration resonating in the universe. Your freewill determines what you voluntarily do, so look up more often than down, realize the evolutionary advantage to being the smartest in the room, don’t let those that benefit from our ignorance win.

 

Doing the great work

Most people have to have a job to get by but not every job we get paid for will be part of the great work we desire to do. A job can pay the bills but the great work is that which stirs our soul.

People lose their happiness when they forget that the 2 things sometimes are not the same. You may have a love of knitting but have to be a server to pay the bills. What’s important is knowing that what you do for money may not be what feeds your soul. That’s ok, we are big kids now and can make decisions that reflect that fact.

But just because we have jobs we “have ” to do doesn’t mean we should stop doing anything else. We have to maintain and continue to do our great work in order to stay happy. Paying the bills is responsible but a lack of creative expression in life is a life lived in black and white, no color at all. Our great work feeds the longing for life.

There is truthfully all kinds of great work. Because any work you do with love becomes great work. I think back to my Grandma getting up early to make the pies we wanted, no sweat for her to get up before the sun so we could have homemade pie for dessert. It was an easy sacrifice for her. Cooking was part of her great work. She did many things as part of her great work, which was to love and teach us unconditional love.

It’s important to the human that the work we do, be something that stirs the heart, we need that, to feel like our presence on this planet means something. When we feel like our work doesn’t count or that no one sees the importance of our work it hurts us. Beyond that is knowing that the work you do that feeds you, is something to have to do, were called to do, and it may be something that others around you will disapprove of. You must be ok with that as well.

So right now review your life. Is the thing you spend the most time doing part of your great work? Is the job you are doing to pay the bills killing your soul or have you reconciled yourself to knowing the sacrifice an artist makes to make art? Its important!

When you answer for this lifetime and the time you spent here you will have wanted to at least thought about it!

We as humans need to take responsibility for the time we spend, because our time is a gift. Also it’s important to remember that deep down inside of each of us is a link to the great work. A seed of something you wanted to pursue, to learn, a dream you have yet to follow. That’s why they say follow your dreams. It is key to figuring out your part of the great work.

So you may think you don’t know what you are called to do when in fact you have not spent enough time with yourself to know the answer. This is another reason a spiritual practice is important so the voice of your higher self can be in constant contact with you.

Imagine a world where everyone was fulfilled by the work they were doing. If more people were walking around fulfilled and excited about what they were doing it would change the face of the world. Every voice that is used in the way it was meant allows more and more people to feel free to use their voice and be who they were meant to be.

This is part of the great work as well, being who you are, who you really are. People get on me all of the time, you just are too spiritual, I can’t even imagine a world where every minute is not figuring out how to please God. Doing God’s work is the great work for me, it gives me pleasure and fills my life with meaning. I love it and when I can get someone to see the worth of their life and that the energy of creation and creator is within their reach…Aww my heart…

May you find your great work and may it feed your soul.
