Reacting with a coping mechanism based on historical defective perception will strip you of your power.

.

6c3b2-8

It is extremely difficult to cope when you find yourself in the middle of a problem and just cannot see the way out of your current predicament. Your mind starts racing around like a racehorse. This horse thunders around in your head causing untold damage. It kicks down your stable door of self-esteem and jumps the fence of the current moment. Wave after wave of anxiety and fear deliver crushing blows to your confidence. You franticly attempt to take control with little or no success. Your once composed mind changes into a whirlpool of chaos. Anxiety, isolation and fear break through the protective barriers that usually sheltered you from potential threats. Your emotions dart around and cannot decide if you must fight like a wounded animal or run like the wind. You know that you do not want or need what is happening to you, but find it impossible to row your boat of life to calmer waters. Horrific images of disaster and destruction flash on the screen of your mind. Your tired mind begs for safety and security, but a reprieve seems impossible.

 

Have you noticed that your mind seems to automatically spring into action like a horse breaking free from the starting gate? This horse with the peculiar name called “what if” rush around with its blinkered eyes. This horse is often confused and seems to gallop back into your past or forward into your future in an attempt to find a solution for the current perceived threat that you are faced with. This spooked break away horse is frantically trying to compute what might transpire if the current problem or obstacle is not quickly removed.

It is imperative to notice that our minds seem to lack a “pause” mode. Our minds react spontaneously when triggered. Thousands of “what if” messages and images bounce around in our heads. Our minds become human pinball machines with alarm bells and whistles going off all over the show. Old painful wounds are ripped open and potential disasters are predicted. Our minds are everywhere, but in the now. Virtually anything or anyone can trigger a landslide of fear and emotion that clouds your judgement and ability to compose yourself. No calm and controlled assessment is made of what you are actually and realistically faced with. Panic decisions are made with limited information at your disposal. We become so panic-stricken that we will rather guess or speculate than base our decisions on solid and valid information. Relax for a moment and validate what I shared with you so far. Study previous problems that you were faced with historically and see if there is any validity in the claim that I am making that we have a strong tendency to avoid the now as if it is the carrier of a dreaded disease. See if you agree if there is some kind of mechanism in your head that hates to confront the present moment when you are faced with adversity. Our vivid imagination will rather present us with horror movies than solve a current problem that we are faced with. It will go to amazing lengths to mentally whisk you away from “what is” to a place called “what might happen” that is always future based.

The discomfort of the unknown makes it almost unbearable for us to stay focused in the now. The unlimited range of options and answers that might be right in front of you in the now is ignored. Your mind will rather paint an endless range of horrific scenarios that are more often than not based on fear and illusions. It is impossible to grasp why we will rather amplify whatever we are faced with than simply accept “what is”. There is amazing power hidden in the now. The now properly applied is much less scary than the horrific creations of our mind. Most of our problems that we are faced with cannot stand careful scrutiny. The habit of habitually filtering the current moment through past experiences based on defective data just does not make sense. No two problems or situations are the same. We are trying to hammer a square peg into a round hole when we attempt to compare “what is” with the past. We must also not forget that our habit of acting in the insane manner depicted above is not new. It thus stands to reason that decisions based on historical performances will just compound the problem. Spontaneous reactions based on “what is” will always provide you with better outcomes. Acting in the “now” with what you currently have will empower you while reacting with a coping mechanism based on historical garbage or future fantasies will strip you of your power.

Looking at anything in life from a single perspective is the lazy way out.

.

Page-Headervvc

There is a saying that ignorance is bliss. This might be true for some, but it is as far as I am concerned the root cause of most of our suffering, pain and anxiety. Accepting life, people, religion, politics, perceptions, choices, rules and laws at face value imprisoned the mind of mankind. Looking at anything in life from a single perspective is the lazy way out. Seeing and experiencing from a limited range of perspectives have shackled man almost since its inception. Primitive man could not read, write or decipher the range of threats that confronted them and were forced to turn to priests and other individuals for guidance. This disposition provided a wonderful opportunity for those that claimed that they understood to take over control of their followers minds. The initial flimsy net that these opportunists wove gradually grew stronger and more sophisticated.

 

You will later see how this initial ignorance created an ideal vehicle of enslavement for those in control. Mankind have been kept in a state of ignorance since the beginning of time by greedy power hungry individuals, groups and organizations. Primitive methods of pain, pleasure and hope were used to restrain the masses. Man experienced fleeting moments of pleasure while they blindly obeyed the “commands” of these controllers. Thousands of written laws, spiritual and otherwise came into being over the years. Those that remained subdued and subservient were praised and rewarded while anyone that questioned anything faced the intricate range of pain that these controllers could bring to bear on them. They were cruelly tortured in the dark ages when they questioned anything to do with religion or the state.

 

Mankind became the slaves of the controllers. They were carefully manipulated to let go of a fair percentage of their hard earned income. The state took their pound of flesh while the religious leaders demanded at least ten percent of all income earned as well. The system sucked in mankind to such an extent that only a handful of individuals over the years showed the courage to point out the deadly trap that we find ourselves in up to today. Do you grasp that the slaves of this system not only police the deadly system on behalf of the controllers, but breed their future slaves when they produce children? I can write a fairly substantial book on this subject matter, but believe that you can see what I am addressing in this document.

 

My plea is that everyone make it his or her business to get rid of the veil of ignorance that is responsible for most of their anxiety, pain and lack. You might have noticed that I post a very wide range of perceptions daily on an endless range of subjects. My motivation is that I want you to look at stuff from many different perspectives. Nothing is as it seems. I will continue to write on the endless range of methods used to keep us ignorant if I get a fairly acceptable responds on this post.

The Difference between Religion and Spirituality

.

These differences are general and therefore not applicable to all the different organised religions. Some of these differences may not apply to your specific religion. Being religious does not mean that one cannot be spiritual or vice versa. It is also possible to be both religious and spiritual. Some people had no religious education, but they are spiritual in the sense that they live in awe of their Creator. 

.

RELIGION

SPIRITUALITY

1. Externally imposed beliefs, values, dogma and doctrine as interpreted by the clergy, an ordained priest or rabbi.

1. An internal search for the Truth and no external, authoritative body or dogma.

2. Religion provides the answers to most of the fundamental questions. Most religions disapprove of and discourage their followers to think for themselves or to question the dogma.

2. There are no pre-formulated answers. It is essential that you explore different traditions, question and use your enquiring mind. You need to discern in order to determine the Truth.

3. One is to a certain degree dependent on one’s ordained priest who acts as an intermediary or gatekeeper to heaven.

3. One is capable of establishing a direct and personal relationship with the Creator.

4. Some organised religions are fear based as the followers are threatened with hell fire, brimstone and the wrath of God.

4. God is Love and Light and the emphasis is on an unconditional and a non-judgemental Higher Power.

5. There is a specific time and place of worship, such as a cathedral, synagogue mosque, church or temple.

5. There is no specific time or place of worship. You live in awe of God all the time. God is everywhere and now here.

6. Some organised religions tend to induce guilt and attempt to keep people dependent.

6. Spirituality empowers the individual, because God is loving and compassionate and wants one to feel worthy.

7. Some religions demand total obedience, poverty and celibacy if it is your vocation to serve God.

7. God can be served by anyone in any position (even if you enjoy affluence). God is unconditional.

8. Religion has divided people, created friction, conflict and war. Millions have been killed in the name of religion. Polarisation also occurs within the same religious order.

8. People from different cultures, races and religious denominations gather in peace and harmony in their devotion to the Divine. There is no division, discrimination or judgement.

9. Some religions support a patriarchal system and women are regarded as inferior. Women are banned from certain ceremonies, denied an education in certain Holy Scriptures and they may not be ordained as priests.

9. There is no discrimination with regard to gender. We are all equal and children of the Creator; the Creator has no preferences and regards all of us as His children. Nobody is denied access to any Holy Scripture.

10. Discrimination against members of a different faith or denomination. There are also religions that claim exclusivity, in other words their doctrine is the only path to salvation.

10. Unconditional positive regard for one’s fellow man, regardless of his creed. One’s neighbour is loved, honoured and respected, just as one loves and respects oneself.

11. Depending on the religion, one is limited to a specific Scripture, Text or Bible and there are religions that claim that their text is the only ‘Truth’.

11. All the Scriptures and the teachings of all the great Masters are available and perused without judgement. One uses the ability to discern to find one’s own Truth.

12. Many people, who claim that they are ‘religious’, do not practise what they preach.

12. Most truly spiritual people live a life of integrity, in congruence with their spiritual values and in total harmony with their fellow man.

13. Most religious traditions have a more narrow-minded approach and a tendency to be suspicious of information that does not fit in with their doctrine and beliefs.

13. An eclectic and far more open-minded approach, as well as a tendency to focus on Universal Laws and Truths.

14. Some religious orders tend to discriminate against, reject, victimise or condemn other races, prostitutes, illegitimate children and/or homosexuals.

14. Unconditional acceptance and a non-judgemental attitude towards other races, minority groups or those victimised by society.

Ask yourself who is benefiting from your state of fear.

.

EnergyManagement

.

Man fear failure, pain, loss, embarrassment, rejection, and a wide range of other stuff. Why do we allow the element of fear to play such a devastating role in our lives? The main reason seems to be that we don’t want to endure pain, discomfort and anxiety because we don’t enjoy the feelings that flood our body and mind. Have the thought ever cross your mind that we don’t fear the same stuff universally? Some of us will allow a spider to sit in our hand without showing any anxiety or fear. Some of us will give a speech in front of a massive audience and enjoy it. There are those that seem to be immune to verbal abuse and rejection. A thick skin repels verbal abuse like a rug treated with a soil repellent. The reason why we have different fear patterns is because those that conditioned us during childhood had different things that they feared during your formative years. There are certain fears that are more universal. Religion and politics in the area where you grew up is usually responsible for specific fears. Fear became a universal control system that is used openly, but more often than not subliminally by governments, religion, banks etc. to put you in an almost endless state of fear. Look around you and you will discover that the whole system was designed to control the masses. The more we fear the thicker the walls become around us that keep us a prisoner. We fear rejection and take endless abuse by our partner. We fear financial pressure and eat the abuse of a slave driving boss daily. We fear crime and build prisons with high walls with barb wire that we live in. We are also controlled by our fear of other races, religions, political groups and the potential of disasters like earth warming or the second coming of Christ. We often fear Muslims and Muslims hate (form of fear) Christian. Can you see the endless invisible chains that keep us locked in a state of mental paralysis? The only way that you can escape the fear trap is to see things as they are and not the way that your controllers want you to view them. Take anything you fear and start researching it. Make it your business to fully understand the dynamics of the subject of your research. Dig deep and ask questions. Knowledge will set you free. Knowledge shines a light in the dark dungeons where fear hides in your mind. Most of the stuff you fear is nothing more than toothless paper tigers that make a lot of noise. Be bold and select one subject today that you would like to expose to the light. I guarantee you that there is virtually nothing that can threaten you once you start applying this principle. Remember someone is benefiting from your fear. Ask yourself who is benefiting from your state of fear and you will identify your fear source and at the same time grasp his/her or their motivation.

When did God vanish from the stage of life and retreat into his heavenly abode?

What would the implications be if we discovered that God want or need nothing from nobody? I know some of the readers may experience feelings of anxiety, fear, anger or even panic when they attempt to contemplate what might look like a preposterous statement far removed from the historical “God perceptions” that we grew up with. What would have happened to mankind if they discovered a long time ago that God actually never needed or expected anything from anyone?

 

Would there have been any meaningful theology?

 

Would there have been any churches?

 

Would there have been the endless number of religions and spiritual movements with all their individual dogmas?

 

Would there have been the ongoing love – fear relationships that many still  experience today when they think of the God concept promoted by their church?

 

Would there have been fear of death, hell and Satan?

 

Would there have been fear of old age?

 

Would there have been the religious wars where many millions were killed in the name of various Gods?

 

Would there have been a Roman Catholic, Christian and a Muslim Movements that boast with billions of followers?

 

The reason why many of us still insist that God have always had strict requirements is because in some peculiar way it provides us with a sense of worthiness. Some might even reason that they will have to become atheists if they bought into the idea that God needs nothing from nobody. The idea never cross their mind that most of the God perceptions that they cling to were planted in their heads when still very young. 

 

Churches, clergy, priests, emperors, kings etc. worked themselves into a very powerful and influential position by claiming that they are the earthly representatives of some or other God. They revealed hundreds of laws, rules, regulations and expectations that the God according to their perception of Him insist that must be enforced to make Him happy and assist Him to remain composed and not lose His cool. The prescriptions were always linked to dire warnings that, if ignored or not address to the letter would result in serious punishment in the near future or in some kind of afterlife. These warning included predictions of death, destruction, famine, droughts and hardship. These predictions were initially enough to control their followers and keep them subservient. It later became necessary to turn up the heat regarding God’s expectations and needs. This is where those that thought that they might get away with disobedience to God’s commands (like totally wiping out a so-called pagan nation) discovered that God also have a record keeping system and a court of law in heaven that is waiting for those that failed to fulfil the stipulated requirements when they die . The concept of Hell and everlasting damnation after death tightened the screws of control to a level where most in a sheep like manner remain loyal to the church. 

 

The endless laws, rules and regulations continued to flow from God through so-called inspired individuals until Constantine decided to collate a book (The Bible). All the mystical inspired chats between God and the authors suddenly dried up. Not a single person according to this philosophy have been inspire after this event. God vanished from the stage of life and apparently retreated into his heavenly abode. The clergy however kept churning out endless often self-serving commands by interpreting the historical laws and commandments and in this manner kept the upper hand, power and money flowing.

 

Stop for a moment and think about the statements that I made above. Let us play for a moment with the idea that God never demanded anything from anyone. What would the implications be if man made Gods for themselves in their own image? What would the implications be if the depictions of the Gods were wrong and that God never insisted on the endless range of requirements now cast in stone in their Holy Books? What if the real God (life force) never meddled with man and allowed each individual to work out his own fate and future on a moment to moment basis with the choices he or she make? What if God gave man free will to make any choice and never metered out any punishment, but like a good parent allows His now physically mature children to learn via their own mistakes? Do not reject this option. Think about it for a moment and you will discover that a million and one things that might have bothered you about your current God concept now suddenly fall into place.
