More False Self Attachments to People

August 13, 2008

Update for Email Subscribers

I have been researching the ongoing issues regarding email subscriptions.  The current status is that somehow email subscriptions for our email account have been turned off.  I cannot get them turned back on even though the account settings show this service as being active.  Also, the account is rejecting any new requests for email subscriptions.

 

I apologize for these issues.  When I set up this site two months ago my research showed that FeedBurner appeared to be the premier subscription service.  They had been quite stable and provided quality service.

 

Now, because it is free, there is very little information being published by FeedBurner regarding these issues.  The support areas on the site show that other people are having similar issues with their feeds.  Also, because it is free, there is no good way to call someone at FeedBurner to find out what is going on.

 

I will continue to research this issue and keep our readers updated as I can.  Thank you for your patience and your efforts to read this blog.  Despite the problems with FeedBurner the visits to this site have been increasing.

 

Thank you for the effort you are making to read this.

 

Let’s go to today’s post!

 

Fears and Attachments Are Interconnected

As we have heard about the true self and false for the last week or so, I hope you have seen that the false self fears and attachments are closely interconnected.  Almost every time that we looked at one we have heard about the other.  I want you to really start to feel just how interconnected these two things are.  The better you understand the interconnection the sooner you will become adept at untangling them.

 

When we first start observing our behavior we usually only see the fears.  We are afraid of our boss, our spouse, the police, and so on.  We start to deal with the fears but it may take awhile to understand the underlying attachment that caused the fearful behavior.  The paradox is that the attachment is also based on a fear.  I have had a fun time pulling apart my fears and attachments.  Possibly some of that experience might help you.

 

An Example

Let’s take an example of a fear that many of us have.  We will pull it apart and look at the underlying attachment and related fears.

 

The example that we will use is a fear of our spouse.  The specific fear that we will look at is our fear that they may hurt us if they no longer like us.  Let’s step through this from the beginning:

 

  1. Starting with the base fear of false self, we find that false self knows that it is not supposed to be alone.  It knows that it should have guidance and direction but has been trained out of looking to our true self for that direction.  When it finds someone, in this example our spouse, who accepts it that fear is somewhat assuaged.
  2. Now that the fear is somewhat assuaged, false self wants to keep it that way.  It is much happier if it does not have to look at fears.  To keep the fear in check the false self creates an attachment to our spouse.  It hopes that by keeping that person around it will not have to look at the fear.
  3. Now that the attachment is in place false self develops a new fear.  That is the fear of losing or upsetting our spouse.  Remember, the attachment is supposed to enable our spouse to assuage the underlying fear of being alone.  Now we have a fear of losing our spouse.  Our actions are based on this fear, but stem from what is mentioned in points one and two.

 

In summary: false self is fearful because it knows that it is not supposed to be alone and has not been properly trained.  This fear causes it to attach to its spouse.  That attachment in turn causes fear of losing the spouse.

 

This appears to be somewhat complicated.  When we start to look at our unhappiness it is hard enough to direct that attention to ourselves.  It is much easier to blame external situations for our unhappiness.

 

The Result

Our spouse decides that they no longer want to be with us.  Do we ask “could it be all the odd behavior we exhibited because of the attachment?”  No.  We blame it on the spouse because they have hurt us.  If we are hurt it has to be because of someone else now, doesn’t it?

 

You can see how it can take awhile to start to work through the fears and attachments.  The first step, as always, is accepting that we are the source of our unhappiness.  Then we must begin to honestly observe our behavior.

 

Gradually we will see that our spouse did not hurt us.  We acted out of a fear that came from our attachment to our spouse.  Our spouse did not reject us.  They rejected our behavior.  They probably gave us many chances to change that behavior.  After multiple chances it became apparent that we were more interested in our fear and its underlying attachment than relating to our spouse in a reasonable manner.

 

Our spouse did not understand all this.  They just saw our inability to control our behavior and rejected the behavior.  How many of us have been in more than one relationship that turned out like this?  I know that I have.

 

In reality, as we begin to understand our fears and attachments they are interrelated with other fears and attachments.  Sometimes it helps to follow one fear and its attachments to its roots.  Sometimes it is better to look at the attachments and then the fears. 

 

We can see how difficult it can become to start to pull apart our fears and attachments.  Please do not be concerned.  We all learn to do it in our own ways.  My method may help you and it might not.  It does not matter.

 

What matters is that you find your own way to resolve your fears and attachments.  As you do that you will start to notice that you are becoming a much happier person.

 

 

 

 

Until tomorrow –

True Self Sees Everyone as an Equal

August 12, 2008

Email Subscriptions

I am still attempting to determine the status of our email subscription delivery.  It does not appear that the daily email has been being sent or received in a few days.  Any feedback via a comment on the blog or by email to noahnow@yahoo.com would be greatly appreciated.

 

Now to the daily post.  Yesterday we talked about how and why false self creates attachments to people.  Today we look at how our true self relates to people.  Are you ready?  Let’s go!

 

True Self Does Not Attach to People

Our True Self has known since its creation that it did not need other individuals in order to simply exist.  It also knows that although help from other individuals is important, it does not need any particular individual for any help that it might require.

 

We all require occasional help to live our lives.  Also, we all help other individuals with their lives.  True self understands this and recognizes that attachments are not necessary.  True self knows that when we truly need help that any necessary help will be found.  True self does not need to attach itself to that help; it only needs to allow that assistance to happen.

 

False self is afraid to lose any help that might come its way.  Therefore it attaches to anyone who it thinks might help it.  Then it becomes afraid that the help might be withdrawn and attaches to the person perceived as providing help.  Frequently it will manipulate the perceived helper through blame, guilt, or shame.  The manipulation and the attachment spoil any possibility of a positive relationship.

 

True self knows we do not need to attach to anyone offering assistance.  We know that we can eventually resolve any situation, and that the appropriate assistance will always be available when we truly need it.  This inner strength and self confidence keep true self from needing attachments of any sort, especially to people.

 

True Self Treats Everyone as an Equal

Because true self has no fear of people and needs no attachments to them, we can treat each person we meet with the dignity and respect that they deserve.  True self looks at the true self in the people we meet during the course of a day. It knows that all individuals are children of the same Creator and are deserving of the same dignity and respect we want for ourselves.

 

True self does not look at and judge the false self which an individual is using for this lifetime.  True self always looks at and attempts to relate to the other true self that is operating the false self with which it is interacting physically.  As true self we do not allow the false self of another individual to cause us to lose our respect for their true self.

 

What we are describing here is the true meaning of treating everyone as an equal.  This is the way our true self relates to all other individuals.  This is how we want other individuals to relate to us, so we relate to them in the same manner.  Also, our true self does not care if the other individual does not return the same equality to us.

 

As true self we know that we cannot be diminished by any actual or perceived disrespect from someone else.  True self knows that we are doing just fine regardless of what anyone else thinks or feels about us.  Remember – it is the false self that cares about what others think about it.

 

True Self Knows That We Can Learn From Anyone

Do you remember back when we said that the purpose of existence is to learn and grow and then to share that learning and growth with each other?  Well, here is the link if you need a refresher.  Because our true self knows this, it also knows that it can learn from any other individual, no matter their level of advancement.

 

As true self we know that anyone we encounter during our day can teach us something, whether they know it or not.  True self knows that we have experience from which any individual we encounter might learn.

 

This is a very humbling realization.  We can all learn and grow from each other.  Therefore as true self we see all individuals as being equal.  We are merely attempting to learn from each other and help each other to grow.

 

This is the great engine that moves all of Creation forward.  All individuals treat each other with dignity and respect.  The primary purpose of each individual is to learn what they can and then share that learning with those around them.

 

The False Self Gets in the Way

As we have shown numerous times, false self is afraid of everything.  It does not like this idea of treating everyone as an equal.  It does not like the idea of being able to learn from anyone it encounters during the day.  After all, the false self  has to prove it is someone.  How can it do that when it has to accept that someone else might be right?

 

Any one who has read the writings on this site for awhile will recognize that we almost always come back to observing the false self behavior.  This is always the first step towards overcoming that behavior and learning to find our true happiness.  Today is no different.  Observe how our false self approaches other people during the course of your day.  Does it treat them as equals?  Does it think it can learn from them?

 

When we are observing this behavior we are being our true self.  True self knows that we must monitor our false self behavior so that we can train it to listen to true self.

 

True self wants to treat each individual with dignity and respect.  When we do this we are being our true self, not our false self.  True self knows that we exist to learn and share that learning.  When we are doing this we are being our true self.

 

The more we practice being our true self the more we gradually train our false self out of its fears and attachments.  As we learn to be our true self, the true happiness we seek comes closer.  There is no longer any room for the unhappiness that comes from our false self.

 

I keep imploring you to learn these methods of finding your true happiness.  Yes, it is a bit of work.  However it is important that we do the work.  I want nothing more than for each of you to find your true happiness much sooner that I found mine.

 

Until tomorrow –

Quo Vadis – Where Are We Going?

August 1, 2008

 

In today’s post we ask the question “where are we going?”  I have been writing this blog for six weeks and it is time that we take a few minutes and reflect where we started and where we want to go.  But first…

 

Thankful Friday

As is our custom on this site on Friday we extend our thanks to some of those around us for the help they have given to this project.

 

First, I would like to thank Havar for the inspiration and guidance he gave me during the fourteen years in which he was a physical presence in my life.  I would also like to thank him for the continuing assistance he has given me in the sixteen years since he left the physical structure that he was using on this planet.  I have never known a more patient, wise, and loving person.

 

I would also like to thank all of our readers who make the daily effort to read these scribblings.  I would especially like to thank those readers who subscribe to this newsletter on a daily basis.  If you would like to receive this newsletter in your email on a daily basis just click on this SUBSCRIBE link.

 

Finally I want to thank WordPress and FeedBurner.  WordPress provides the free site for me to write and you to read.  FeedBurner provides the free service that sends our subscribers the daily update as an email.  Thank you everybody!

 

Quo Vadis?

Quo vadis is a Latin phrase that means “Where am I going?”  In context here we will use it to mean “Where are we going?”

 

Where We Began

When I began writing this blog six weeks ago I knew I had to explain some background information.  This includes the posts regarding what Crystal Children, Indigo Children, and Star Children are.  Then we looked at the status of the project that brought the various groups here.  Finally we spent a lot of time looking at many of the specifics of the planetary rebalancing that we are beginning to experience.

 

I wanted to get all that background information published so that when it is needed it is there to be used.  That background information has never been the sole purpose of these writings.  That information is the context within which the rest of the journey is travelled.  If we were to concentrate solely on those sensational ideas then we would be guilty of paying attention to the side show and missing the main event.

 

Where We Are Going

The main event is finding our spirituality.  That is the true purpose of our work on this site.  If we were to have a mission statement it would be along the lines of “Helping those who identify themselves as Crystal Children, Indigo Children, or Star Children to find their individual spirituality and learn to live happily within a world that does not understand them.”  Or something like that.

 

I started writing about illusions and some of the other spiritual one liners that were published recently in order to start the true work.  Let’s take a look at an idea that is similar to some of the others that we have seen recently.

 

We are living on a planet that is caught up in illusions and does not want to learn to see through those illusions.  These illusions start with seeking happiness from an external source and permeate everything on the planet.  This planet is also beginning a rebalancing of all of its natural systems.  This would not be a problem to the inhabitants if they were able to see that their happiness comes from within.  Instead they view the planet as a large part of their happiness and the rebalancing is already starting to make many of them extremely unhappy.  To say the least.

 

Where Do We Start Our Work?

Given the two situations discussed in the previous paragraph, where should the Crystal Children, Indigo Children, and Star Children start their work?  Let’s look at a few options.

 

We could start by telling everyone about the coming rebalancing.  We would be correct that it is coming.  However, what purpose would it serve?  I have been trying to tell people about it for thirty years and no one really cares.  They are caring more now because it is becoming obvious, but they are insisting that it can be stopped.  We have some historical data to consider as well.  The biblical Noah was attempting to say the same things before Atlantis occurred.  The Bible tells us that he was not successful.  He had a much smaller audience then compared to now.  Why should we think we will be any more successful?

 

That leaves working with understanding that our happiness comes from within.  This is the same thing as becoming spiritual.  Should we go around and tell everyone how spiritual we are and that they need to do the same?  It seems to me that a lot of people have tried this throughout history.  Once again, why should we think we will be more successful?

 

We Start Where We Are

The answer is that we start where we are.  We say that we are a Crystal Child, Indigo Child, or Star Child and that our primary duty on this planet during this lifetime is to pursue our own spirituality.  That means that we pursue our answers and happiness from within us.  We learn to see through the illusions to find our true happiness.

 

We do not have to change our jobs, change our relationships, or leave our family to begin our work.  As we pursue our spirituality we will find answers to any situations that these things present.  The important thing is to find our spirituality and share it with those around us who are open to what we have to share.

 

Think about what will be the most important thing that this planet could have after the rebalancing finishes.  In my mind that would be a group of people dedicated to their spirituality and who are actively assisting others to find their spirituality.

 

This group of people needs to be from all walks of life.  They will need to be active within the community of the planet.  They will be doctors, teachers, truck drivers, factory workers, yes, even politicians.  They will need to exemplify the spiritual life in their daily life.  Their calmness, strength, and insight will inspire others who survive the rebalancing to seek their own spirituality.  Let’s start that group by learning to be those things right now.

 

Well, that’s all for this week.  We have finally taken a look at where all this is going.  We need to seek our own spirituality and become more involved in the community of the planet.  Gradually we will become the example that others will want to emulate.  We do not have to say anything.  We just have to be our true selves.  We will talk more about that next week.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Until Monday –

What Is Spirituality?

July 23, 2008

 

This Week

We have thrown the term “spirituality” around a great deal in recent posts.  Today we will discuss what we mean by spirituality when we use the term on this site.  We have relegated illusion smashing to next week.  For the rest of this week we will be looking at some other subjects for discussion.

 

Current Usage

It is rather common these days to hear someone use the concepts of spirituality and religion interchangeably.  If we are spiritual we must be religious.  Consequently, if we are religious we must be spiritual.

 

To see the difference we will first discuss the concept of spirituality.

 

Spirituality Means to Live from Our Spirit

When we are learning to live a spiritual life we are learning to look inside of ourselves.  Inside of us we find our True Self or Spirit.  Some people also call this our soul.  Our spirit is the source of our happiness, self confidence, power, and guidance.  We discussed the aspect of looking inside for our happiness last week.

 

There are many authors, prophets, and great thinkers in general who have discussed the spirit at length.  We will not comment on those discussions here.  We will explain what we mean by spirit.

 

We each have a unique, indestructible, and everlasting part of ourselves.  This is what we call the spirit.  We have yet to discuss reincarnation at length on this site, but that conversation is coming soon.  Our spirit is the part of us that remembers what we have learned in all of our previous lifetimes.  It also remembers what we have learned in all of our nonphysical learning experiences.  In short it is the repository for all of our knowledge, wisdom, and experience.

 

When we enter a physical lifetime on this planet we are trained to forget any direct connection with that wisdom and experience.  We mentioned this when we talked about why the Crystal Children, the Indigo Children, and the Star Children forgot why they came here. 

 

We are trained to forget about our True Self (spirit).  We have a vague notion that something is not quite right.  We know that there should be more to us, but we cannot seem to find what it is.  Eventually many of us start a journey to discover our spirituality.

 

As we have discussed on this site, that journey is fraught with illusions.  Most of the people around us are caught up in illusions and cannot seem to admit that they are.  They exert pressures of guilt, shame, blame, etc. in an attempt to keep us from pursuing our journey.

 

Spirituality is About What Is Inside

As we begin our journey we usually have a number of misconceptions about what our spirituality is and what it will do for us once we find it.  One of the most common misconceptions is that we can become more spiritual by doing certain things.

 

Let’s make a list.  We can become more spiritual by:

 

Eating proper food

Doing yoga

Breathing properly

Being nice to people

Belonging to a particular group of people

Sleeping properly

Being more healthy

Learning about ESP, UFOs, crystals, etc.

 

What do all these things have in common?  These are all attempting to find spirituality by pursuing an external means.  If we are looking for our spirituality inside, how will eating the proper food help us?  Our spirit is not in our stomachs.  Through yoga we might learn to calm and quiet our minds, but without the proper understanding of how to use that mind we will not find our spirituality.

 

Finding our True Self is frequently a long and slow process.  It can take a bit of time to learn how to train our minds to see through the illusions that keep us from our goal.  It is far more easy to do the external things because that way we can prove that we are becoming more spiritual.

 

I have been a vegan for twenty years.  I must be more spiritual than I was when I still ate meat.  Maybe you are and maybe you are not more spiritual now.  If you want to be a vegan please do so.  Just don’t think that it will make you more spiritual.

 

I belong to this wonderful group of spiritual people.  I must be more spiritual now.  How do you know?  What makes these people more spiritual?  Why does belonging make you more spiritual?

 

Spirituality comes from living in harmony with our spirit (True Self).  That is inside of us.  Period.  The end.  Full stop.  ‘Nuff said.

 

Being Spiritual vs. Being Religious

As we have said so many times today, spirituality is about what is inside, not something we do about the outside.

 

With very few exceptions, religions are a bunch of outside rules, commandments, dogmas, etc. that tell us how to pursue our spirituality.  Religions (and other ideologies) concentrate on the rules of achieving our spirituality.  If we do not follow the rules then we are not spiritual.

 

As we have stated on this site, the reason that we exist is to learn and grow and to share that learning and growth with those around us.  The only rule is that we do not interfere with the free will of another individual because that keeps them from learning and growing in the manner that they choose.

 

Once we accept that there are external rules that can govern our internal spirituality we cease being spiritual.  When a religion tells us that its rules are more important than our pursuit of our spirituality it is telling us that their rules (which are external to our spirit) should control our spirit.  They are also taking away our free will.

 

This applies to any other ideology or methodology.  If someone tells you that they have a set of external rules that will help you find your spirituality then you must run, not walk to the nearest exit.  All that person wants to do is to control you.

 

Our spirit cannot be controlled by any external rules.

 

That is all for today.

Until tomorrow –

Illusions – Review of What We Learned This Week

July 18, 2008

And as always, we extend our thanks to WordPress.  They provide this site free to the creators and the readers.  Thanks WordPress!

 

Today

Our original intention was to smash another illusion today.  We have had our hammers out all week smashing away at illusions.  We will put the hammers down today.  Let’s put our thinking caps on and we will review what we have covered this week.

 

Next Week

We will look at a few other illusions next week.  Later in the week we will hear about a few other topics that are of importance to our audience.

 

Put your hammers down and put on your thinking caps!  It’s time for today’s post!

 

Reviewing Illusions – Why we Exist

We started this week explaining to the Crystal Children, Indigo Children, and Star Children that we really can know why we exist.  There is an illusion on this planet that postulates that we cannot know why we exist.

 

This illusion keeps us from being able to find our true purpose in life.  There have been many individuals in the history of this planet that have manipulated others based on this illusion.  By learning to see through this illusion we begin to take back our sense of purpose and learn to see how to live our lives much more effectively.

 

The reason why we exist is to learn and grow.  As we learn and grow we share that learning and growth with each other.  The only rule is that we do not interfere with the free will of another individual because that keeps them from being able to learn and grow in the manner that they choose.  Life is really that simple.

 

Once we accept that we can know why we exist we can make the best choices for our lives.  As we make the choices to be constantly learning we advance ourselves.  As we help those whom we can help we put those lessons into practice.  Isn’t that a much more simple way to live?

 

Reviewing Illusions – Happiness

On this planet there are many illusions regarding how to find happiness.  This week we looked at three different variations of the same illusion.  We all have gotten caught up in the illusion of finding our happiness through external circumstances.

 

The first variation we heard about was the way we look to external situations for happiness.  We hope a situation will change so that we will be happier.  Sometimes we make an external situation change and hope to find happiness in the new situation.

 

We all know of someone who moved to a new dwelling or even a new city in hopes of finding happiness.  They found that they were just as unhappy.  Why?  Because they brought themselves along.  They did not understand that they were the source of their own unhappiness.

 

The next variation that we looked at was how we equate external objects and possessions to happiness.  One of the most common of the externals we seek for happiness is money.  We have all heard the old saying “money can’t buy you happiness.”  We all agree with the saying but we still continue seeking happiness from the money or what the money can buy.

 

We need to get ourselves to the point of recognizing that any time we are seeking happiness through objects or possessions we are making ourselves unhappy.  When we let an object bring us happiness we understand that the loss of the object will make us unhappy.  Shouldn’t there be a better way?

 

The final variation dealt with the feeling that when we look to other people to provide our happiness we once again are making ourselves unhappy.  We give our power away when we decide that our happiness is based on whether or not a specific individual or group of individuals likes us.

 

We give those people total power over whether or not we are happy.  When are we going to learn not to allow other people so much power over us?

 

Seeing Through the Illusions

As with so many of the things that we will be discussing on this site, we begin seeing through these illusions by observing our behavior.  Actually, we first must accept that our happiness does come from within.  When we do not accept that concept then the only thing that we can do is to learn to like being unhappy.  As long as we are looking for happiness externally we will never find it.  If that is what you want to do, go ahead.  Just accept that you will always be unhappy.

 

Now, back to observing our behavior.  We start by observing when we think that an external situation will make us happy.  Many times this is a relatively simple and innocuous statement.  “I sure will be glad when the weekend gets here.”  That seems to be a reasonable statement.

 

When we look at it more closely we are really saying that we are unhappy now because it is not the weekend.  It is also saying that when the weekend is over we are going to be unhappy again.  Don’t we deserve to be happy all the time?  By changing our thinking we can be happy all the time.

 

Another way to start to see through this illusion is to once again observe our thoughts.  This time we are watching for when we are unhappy.

 

When we notice that we are unhappy we ask ourselves why we are unhappy.  Then we wait for the answer.  We always get an answer.  However, many times we do not like the answer we get.  We usually discard the answers that we do not like.

 

That is fine.  Eventually we get an answer that we like.  We take that answer and use it as best we can to discover why we are not happy at that moment.  That unhappiness will always come from some external situation.  We then train ourselves not to give our happiness away to that situation.

 

We are describing a technique that can be used in all situations of unhappiness.  The more we use it the better we get at finding our true happiness.  Gradually we learn to not discard the answers that we do not like.  We learn that the answers we do not like hold the fastest and most direct way to our true happiness.  When we practice this technique we cannot help but gradually increase our true happiness.

 

Have a Great Weekend!

Well – that is plenty for one week.  We hope that everyone has a great weekend.  Keep those hammers at hand!  We will smash some more illusions on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Breaking the Illusions – We Can’t Know Why We Exist

July 14, 2008


Welcome Back

We hope everybody had a great and safe weekend.  We have a lot of things planned for the blog this week, so let’s dig right in with our post for Monday, July 14, 2008.

 

Review

So far in this blog we have spent a month discussing why the Crystal, Indigo, and Star Children are on this planet at this time.  We have looked at the differences between the crystals, indigos, and the stars.  We described their mission here of helping the planet understand and get through the disruptions of the coming planetary rebalancing.  We also looked at how people on other planets anticipate and work with their planets as they rebalance.  Finally we spent all of last week giving some indications of how the rebalancing will manifest.

 

We are finished with those subjects for now.  Comments and discussions are welcome, but we are not planning any new posts relating to those ideas for awhile.

 

This Week

The largest challenge that the Crystal Children, Indigo Children, and Star Children face on this planet is to learn to break through the illusions.  We all know there are things that are very improper in the way this planet functions.  The trick is to understand the illusions that are causing the problems and start to learn to see through them.  This week we will start to do just that.  This might even go into next week.

 

Are you ready for today’s post?  Grab your hammer and let’s start smashing illusions!

 

The Illusion – “We Can’t Know Why We Exist”

It seems that the best place to start is with the illusion that we cannot understand why we exist.  If we do not understand why we exist how can we start to take control of and direct our lives?

 

For all of recorded history philosophers, religious figures, and scholars have attempted to answer the question “Why do we exist?”  I am sure everyone reading this has asked themselves the same thing.  Don’t you think everyone else who has ever lived on the planet has also asked themselves the same question?

 

Over time and for a variety of reasons different people have postulated different answers to this question.  Most of the time those answers were, to one degree or another, self serving.  There were so many answers and those answers were so nebulous that there has never really been any consensus regarding the question of why we exist.  Also, by the physical methods to which we cling so strongly, there is no proof of any of these answers.

 

The Adverse Affect of the Illusion

There are many adverse affects of this illusion.  We will discuss a few of them here.

 

First, when we do not know why we exist, how can we have any true confidence in the choices we make in our lives?  In other words, by not seeing the purpose of our lives how can we know if we are doing the things that will align with our purpose.  This is one of the places our confidence begins to ebb and fear moves in to replace that confidence.

 

Second, by accepting the idea that we cannot know why we exist and losing our confidence, we become much easier to manipulate.  Deep down inside we know there must be a purpose to our life but without any confidence, or worse, with all of our confidence replaced by fear, we follow anyone who can convince us that they know why we exist.  In the end we wind up doing what they want us to do with our lives, not what we want do with it.

 

Third, we do not have a way to guide ourselves through the other illusions.  In thirty years of learning to break this illusion, your humble author has learned that by breaking through this illusion we can use the same technique to see through many of the other major illusions.

 

How to Start to See Through the Illusion

In order to break through this illusion we must first accept that it is possible to know why we exist.  This will be a stretch for some people.  Many of us are convinced that we cannot know why we exist.  Most likely, those who think in this manner will not be open to the possibility that we can know why we exist.  Others of us want to know this answer very badly because somewhere inside we know that there must be an answer.

 

The answer is:

 

We exist to learn and grow; as we learn and grow we share that learning and growth with each other.

 

That is all there is to it.  Life is really that simple.

 

There is only one rule that accompanies this:

 

We do not interfere with the free will of another individual.  When we interfere with an individual’s free will then we keep them from learning and growing in the manner that they choose.

 

That is all there is to life.  Honestly.  The rest is complicated only because we want it to be complicated.

 

It is so simple, but, on this planet, it sounds so strange to many people.  Why should life be any more complicated than those few simple words and concepts?

 

Use This as a Compass

We have used this simple and crystal clear concept to guide our spiritual and personal growth for almost thirty years now.  We are not attached to it.  If someone can show us a simpler way to live, we will gladly accept that example.  As of yet no one has shown us a more simple way to live.

 

When we attempt to clarify and illuminate many of the New Age concepts, we always use this idea.  When we are faced with a situation where we are deciding which politician to support, we choose the one that to the best of our understanding is helping to improve the ways people can work together more effectively.  We always choose for situations where people are either improving themselves or helping each other.

 

We have used this simple but extremely powerful idea to see through countless illusions and help make innumerable decisions.  After doing this for thirty years we are much more happy.  We are also much more in the moment.

 

Hopefully this idea will help you as well.  Please post any questions or comments you may have.

 

Don’t let your hammer get too far away.  We will be back tomorrow to smash more illusions.
