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!

I think people have no idea the power of their negative patterns. You will hear people tell you the same story over and over again with only the names being changed. “She left me, again” Everyone around trying to be supportive because it is the same thing with you, find someone then its “fight, break up then make up, same story different day. Everyone around us can identify where others are stuck but very few people seem to see their own stuck-ness.

Now I am talking about typical human behavior not the kind of irrational behavior that needs supervision and medication. I am talking about the things that hold us back, the things that we won’t readily admit we have the most problem dealing with.

We are swimming in a fog of forgetfulness as far as our own faults and needs to grow are concerned. We will declare our willingness and claim a renewed vigor on our favorite walk of life, slowly losing steam as we realize the real work of change is just that “work”. We do not change because it is a fun activity we change because what we are doing isn’t working anymore and we know it. We have been digging a rut on our life journey following the same circle over and over, claiming each time to do better or better yet pretending you don’t see yourself walking into brick wall as you say “ok, let’s try it one more time”, really one more time!

Yah, one more time, because sometimes its easier to just deal with it than it is to take the steps towards real change.

Because who are we trying to fool. If we are not ready to change there’s not a damn thing that can make us change. Life gets very comfortable even in its stupidness. Especially with our relentless pursuit of entertainment and pleasure to over ride the pain of our unsuccessful lives. We do stupid things, we live unconsciously. And who are you to tells us otherwise?

Sometimes the self loathing we feel towards ourselves causes us to be in denial and while all the evidence points to the fact we are not really making any progress towards our goal we will proclaim victimhood to self-responsibility. Life is hard, yup, check, and sometimes the best teacher you get is the one staring at you in the mirror, you know the one looking at you after you have messed things up, again! We have to be conscious or we will be constantly falling victim to our negative patterns.

Face it, we all have things we need to work on, we ALL do. So do yourself a favor and begin to at least own your stuff. Start to live an examined life. If you are standing on a life path that is experiencing a cascading avalanche of negativity go back through your memories until you find the one that shows you ┬ápulling the lever that was holding the avalanche back. We are here to learn and when we don’t do it consciously we will find ourselves being tripped up by our own ignorance and blindness. We want to learn, deep down inside everyone wants to be better, it just gets covered up in ego and fear, and then we forget.

The joy of being human is the free will we have been given to learn the divine spiritual wisdom needed to run our lives. But it does no good at all to have the freedom and wisdom to run our life if we don’t first have control over it. Understanding how you are tripping your self up will give you the ability to see obstacles as they approach rather than dealing with them after the collision. Take stock in your life and if you find yourself trapped repeating a negative pattern, get out of the house of mirrors, clean off the lens of your eyes and face your reality. Start learning your lessons and get back into the driver’s seat of your life.
