I recently realised that what I have always been writing about was beyond a non-evolutionary consciousness, a consciousness that doesn't want to change, this change of course takes one to let go of any present fixations to existing ideological concepts. I have changed the title of this blog for exactly this reason from The World of True Spiritual Acceptance to Evolutionary Consciousness. Allow yourself to evolve.
As we become more integrated and
communicative around the world, I think it's essential we become aware of the
differences between how we think in regards to other people of different
cultures. At times the difference can be huge and at another times quite
simular. Of course with the dominance and control of the western mind on the
rest of the world, the differences in how we think is diminishing, sadly,
eastern people are thinking more inline with western thinking.
I say sadly because it is obvious from the
below information that the western mind is more dominating and controlling,
even at the expense of the environment to it's own detriment. You have got to
wonder, are more western minded people trying to understand eastern thinking to
bring balance and a moderated existence back to the world? I should also
mention, just because you are living under a western or eastern influence, you
can still think and exist to the contrary depending on the influence one wants
to exist under.
Extract:The West has
consequently developed a materialist science that is focused on the outer
world--which it endeavours to control and exploit. In Asia,
where most religions have arisen, consciousness has been directed inwardly to
understand the essential nature of life.
Westerners worked longer on the stuff they were told they had aced the first
time. The Easterners concentrated on the areas they thought they had botched.
Students from the West—where the cult of self-esteem reigns supreme—wanted a
tummy rub. Students from the East were more concerned with fixing their blind
spots, becoming well-rounded. The Westerners polished up their strengths while
the Easterners addressed their weaknesses.
§Patterns of attention and perception, with
Easterners attending more to environments and Westerners attending more to
objects, and Easterners being more likely to detect relationships among events
§Basic assumptions about the composition of the
world, with Easterners seeing substances where Westerners see objects.
§Beliefs about controllability of the
environment, with Westerners believing in controllability more than Easterners.
§Tacit assumptions about stability vs. change,
with Westerners seeing stability where Easterners see change.
§Preferred patterns of explanation for events,
with Westerners focusing on objects and Easterners casting a broader net to
include the environment.
§Habits of organizing the world, with
Westerners preffering categories and Easterners being more likely to emphasize
§Use of formal logical rules, with Westerners
being more inclined to use logical rules to understand events than Easterners
§Application of dialectical approaches, with
Easterners being more inclined to seek the Middle Way when confronted with apparent
contradiction and Westerners being more inclined to insist on the correctness
of one belief vs. another.
Extract: We can find the most
striking difference in Asian and Western way of thinking. When Asian thinking
aims for harmony, Western thinking strives for order. This is because the basic
philosophy of Western people is based on the concept of liberty, free market
economic system or liberalization of economic system. On the other hand, Asians
do not give much importance to the aspects of free competition of the economic
system. They are concerned more with the equal distribution of income or
solidarity in helping each other among their communities, thereby assuring an

differences of views, you might like the following as well.

the truth as given and

This is interesting stuff. I realise more
clearly now why the western mind has problems with people like me, we point out
where we can become more aware where the western mind only desires to focus on
where they are aware.
Another example is standardisation. The
western mind tries to standardise everything so everyone standardises when it
is obvious the eastern mind doesn't. How many western people standardise
spirituality with awareness? Of course to an eastern mind, spirituality and
awareness are obvious bed fellows; there is simply no standardisation because
there is no expression or motion of control unlike the western mind.
Another example is when the western mind
ostracises or has disdain for people for having their own views, especially
when these views are pointing out a lack of awareness. To the western mind,
pointing out things like this is being critical, to an eastern mind, all one is
doing is pointing out where one is lacking awareness. I am often
ostracised/blocked on forums by the western mind for pointing out our short
falls on my own posts; it's a typical western mind reaction.
Us westerners, in my mind, need to be more
aware of our own short falls of the western mind, but of course the western
mind only desires to be aware of it's grandeurs, it's strengths not it's
weaknesses, this of course is it's weakness.
I should point out that the eastern mind
can be influenced by the western mind to become more of a western mind and
Before considering following an ideology
and or philosophy consider this, which one's are limiting and which one aren't.
A good example of this is the ego limiting or liberating physically and through it's ideologies and
/or philosophies. Is one set of ideologies and /or philosophies
stifling/limiting to all other ideologies and /or philosophies within an
Can an ideology/philosophy be infinite in
nature if it has limits within it's ideologies and philosophies? The answer of
course is no as all limitations are of the finite and not of the infinite,
infinite simply refers to which that is limitless where's finite refers to
which that is limited. Do we want to be governed by what is finite or infinite
in nature? Considering that human consciousness is limited and that divine
consciousness is limitless, we need to make a choice which one we want or even
need to be governed by.
it wise to be governed entirely by an ideology/philosophy that is infinite in
nature while existing in an existence that is governed by finite consciousness?
Infinite consciousness simply means there
are no limitations within the expressions of this consciousness; this
consciousness therefore is able to be expressed in a finite existence. However,
finite consciousness is unable to be expressed within an infinite consciousness
because of it's limitations. You simply can't limit yourself to human
perspectives within divine consciousness because divine consciousness is divine
because it's unlimited (infinite) nature.
I should say when I talk about a divine
consciousness, I am talking about a consciousness that is unlimited and
infinite in nature, in actuality, divine consciousness is able to create
anything and everything because it's not limited.
The following are my replies to other
people on a forum, life can be limiting or limitless, this is our choice.
don't faze you do I I Spirit 3, I respect this; you simply just go with the
flow within the present, in my mind quite commendable.
I suppose so, is love and light a creation from it's opposite making the
opposite just as worthy as love and light or visa-versa. I suppose motion works like this, action
reaction, push and pull, cause and effect. I was speaking with a Malaysian
bloke for some time on and off, he often mentioned the natural flow of the push and pull effect of motion, my western
mind had a hard time comprehending where he was coming from at times but in all
it made sense to me. He basically said
all we need to do is get off the treadmill for all motion creates delusions to
one extent or another.
simply concur, everything is of and comes from spirit/consciousness.
know how I bag/acknowledge the ways of a black and white mentality, I too
express this because how is the ego suppose to become aware if it's not put in
a way that the ego can comprehend and understand? Motion is often of black and white for
instance, light and dark dominating each other, however, to get off the
treadmill one has to learn the ways of the black and white mentality of the
ego, the paradox is, the ego needs a black and white comprehension to do this,
to start with, but know when to let go of this black and white mentality as
indeed all natural but I can see that it might not seem that way as well.
need to plan therefore control? I think
the ego needs to plan where our divine self doesn't, what is there to plan when
you are everything and are aware of everything?
mind, we need to be caring thoughtful of the ego without being controlling, I
often think of the ego as my child that needs my loving attention to become
aware and adult in it's motions, otherwise it's going to be and act in a
self-cantered way like a spoilt brat. I think our present reality shows this.
don't have to be controlling towards your child, just simply guiding the child
through simple awareness. Guiding isn't controlling, it's leading by example,
going with the flow of awareness rather than going against the flow of
awareness. Control is set to certain specifics of awareness, it's only of the
awareness of what can be controlled by the ego, all else is usually discarded
thing with love and light is it's apart of the process that was created by the
process itself, the process of the ego being in control. Think of it as a
treadmill, the control of the treadmill keeps us in motion but when we get off
the treadmill; are we still controlled by the treadmill? We simply got off the
process of control. Getting off from one life process creating another life
process is the same as getting off from the control of the treadmill; we simply
stopped the ego controlling us thus creating yet another process and on it
think treating the process of love and light as a be and end all is a huge
mistake as it's still apart of the process of control. I have spoken to a
number of Eastern minded people on this, they all say all we need to do is
release ourselves from this control, from this process, to be our whole self.
Let's be honest, love and light is still about taking control rather than
releasing it. I think the Western mind has a huge problem in comprehending this;
it's probably why so many Western minded people are upset with me in what I
write, I'm simply seen as a threat to the process of control.
stepdaughter Karla has won three world titles in a row now; it's a world record
in women's IPSC shooting. We guided Karla rather than controlled Karla.
I've experienced some interesting interactions
with other people recently. Are people like me critically judgemental or simply
expressing what we observe in the absence of a black and white mentality? It's
wise to be aware when people lash out at other people, it's good sign their
being controlled by the ego. This reaction of course needs a depiction of one
thing in reference to something else, for example, the comparing of a negative
in reference to a positive. It's what I call a black and white mentality; it
has to be one or the other.
When an ego in control lashes out in
critical judgment, this has to be done through a black and white mentality,
being that the ego in control is always positive and the critically judged is
always negative. How often do people like me critically judge like this, it's
simply wrong or right, negative or positive, black or white? Now, how many
other people judge through a wrong or right, negative or positive, black or
white mentality? It is however natural for the ego in control to turn the
tables or the emphasis from itself to anything else threatening it's control
and existence, people like me are a prime example of this.
I will now share a recent post I posted on
a forum that is in relation to this topic, I also inserted one of my replies I
don't get this, maybe someone on here can assist me with this.
like me are often critically judged as being narcissistic, negative, egotistical,
toxic and so on it goes, for simply expressing our own experiences and
observations. People like me usually observe through the absence of a black and
white mentality, an ego in control obviously finds this most threatening.
egos who judge through a black and white mentality, will often define anyone
not of their egos liking narcissistic, negative, egotistical, toxic and so on,
how else would anyone critically judged other people in this way?
the judgment of a black and white mentality, people like me are supposed to be (judged)
narcissistic. Just recently I wrote a post stating first up that I know little
of this particular subject, I also often state that a lot of what I write is
channelled through me and not from me. I have even stated that what is being
channelled through me I know very little about.
also suppose to be (judged) egotistical, a strange egotism when I often express
myself in a way that a controlling ego finds threatening, in the process making
myself exceptionally unpopular. Just because someone expresses their
experiences that questions the control the ego has over us, doesn't make the
person egotistical but of course it will to an ego in control.
like a drug addict addicted to an addiction, the controlling ego will lash out
at anything questioning it's existence and it's control. The controlling ego
sees people like me as being a huge threat to it's control, of course the ego
in control is going to lash out like this, just like a drug addict.
like me are also supposed to be (judged) as being judgmentally critical. If I
was to judge in accordance with a black and white mentality, of course I would
be judgmentally critical. Honestly, I would be exactly like the people who
judge people like me so critically through their black and white mentality.
course an ego in control is going to lash out like this, it's perfectly natural
for an ego in control to lash our in fear of it's own control and existence. In
actuality, if people's egos didn't lash out at people like me, I simply
wouldn't be following my chosen path in life.
reference to old energy patterns refer to the past, you can't have a perception
of time without making reference to the ego as time is motion and all motion is
if I was to refer to certain patterns as being old, I am in actuality making
reference directly and mainly to the ego.
is in reference to new, a black and white mentality, which can only exist in an
ego based reality/existence. This is
exactly how the ego tricks us in thinking the new isn't of the ego when it's
just as much if not more of the ego.
There is simply no new or old in relation the divine consciousness, why?
The divine consciousness is infinite in nature, not finite, this simply means
it's not based on time but timelessness. Because there is no time, the
perception of old or new can't exist because the perception of old and new
needs a starting point of origin to exist
to start with, there is simply no starting point of origin within the
divine consciousness. In actuality, the
divine consciousness isn't above human consciousness, only the ego in control
perceives this to be the case. One being over and above another is pure ego,
having any kind of disdain for the old consciousness is egotistical; this
includes having disdain for anyone who defends this so-called old
consciousness. In my mind, too many
people into spirituality today exist in disdain, this is pure ego for only can
the ego express disdain.
people like me truly defend this old consciousness? When you truly live by the divine, what is
old and new, black and white? This kind of consciousness in my mind can't
possibility exist within the divine consciousness but many people obviously
think it does. The ego can be exceptionally deceptive, it's
wise to be aware of this, but as always, the ego will at all cost refute what I
have stated here, or, it is simply unable to acknowledge what I have stated
Are people like me narcissistic or egotistical
for pointing out the obvious? The ego in control will always say yes, however,
the ego that isn't in control will say no for obvious reasons. Please don't be duped by the ego, it's a
tricky little devil but only when in control.
should point out, when people like me make reference to egotistical in relation
to myself or others, this observation isn't of disdain like the ego in
control perceives, it's simply pointing
out an obvious that motion is naturally limiting, nothing more. People like me
simply don't have disdain for egotism for it's not of the divine consciousness
to do so. If to the controlling ego defending old consciousness is ego, people
like me are happy to be of the ego in the egos mind, for this shows we are not
of the ego but of the divine. Simply,
the ego is a trickster, it will always accuse itself of being of itself, within
this, the ego will always be in control.
see now, acknowledging that the divine consciousness isn't of some higher
stature than human consciousness is going to be impossible to imagine.
is no true separation between the divine consciousness and human consciousness,
within this understanding, how can divine consciousness be of a higher stature?
Only through ego is everything separated and of levels/separations.
understand it, divine consciousness only observes a difference in motion
between itself and human consciousness. Human consciousness is merely seen as
limited in nature, it's not judged as being of a lower stature to itself. Yes,
the ego will see that a more limited consciousness as being of a lower stature,
only can the ego judge in levels like this, this is not the case for the divine
a consciousness is limited, it's of a lower stature!! Only to the ego in
control is this the case, so why an ego in control? The perception of levels is
all about control, the control and dominance of a lower level, in other words,
control and dominance over a consciousness that is limited.
consciousness simply means a limitless consciousness, an infinite consciousness
This post is a follow on from my last post,
Pleasure Centres of the Mind. If your ego didn't like the last post, it is
unlikely the ego will like this post. Put simply, the ego doesn't like anything
that doesn't' excite the pleasure centre within a reality based on pleasures.
Let's be honest with ourselves here, everything, including spirituality these
days, is based on positive vibrations as opposed to negative vibrations, in
other words what pleases the senses is positive, what doesn't is negative.
This is too obvious for people like me. I
have become involved in numerous spiritual based forums in the last 8 (eight)
years, too often has spirituality been based purely on what pleases the pleasure
centre of the mind, the ego. This of course takes one to ignore and even
denounce anything that vaguely threatens what pleases the pleasure centre of
the mind. Most of the forums I have been involved in have either removed me from
the forum or I removed myself from the forum. When you realise you are
upsetting people's ego to no end, there is no point in continuing being
Once our pleasure senses have been
tantalised, anything that vaguely threatens this pleasure is denounced or
ostracised. What seemed to have occurred is that spirituality is purely based
on fear, while at the same time denouncing religion for being based on fear.
This has been proven to me over and over again on most of these forums; people
literally show fear of their own pleasures being threatened in any sense simply
through their own actions. I should also point out I am still involved in
certain forums/groups to one degree or another, probably because the people on
these forums don't seem to see people like me as threat.
people like me a threat to the control the ego has over other people?
Yes, to the ego, people like me seem to be
a threat to it's existence, the truth is, people like me are only a threat to
the control the ego has over people, not to the ego own existence. In
actuality, only the ego can experience a sensation of being threatened, people
like me are not even a threat to the control the ego has over other people, for
only the ego can experience threatening sensations. What I am saying is, only
can the ego become a threat to itself, this simply occurs when the ego awakes
to itself for only the ego can control ego. People like me are not about
control but the ego will perceive that we are, especially when the pleasure
centre is threatened in any sense.
I have found it quite amusing over my time
on these forums, I have also found it saddening that once again so many people
are using spirituality to obtain and maintain a certain level of pleasure. This
of course takes one to become deliberately unaware of anything that threatens these
pleasurable experiences. Firstly, where is the oneness in this and secondly, it
is obvious that such blatant ignorance will not lead to a state of pure
awareness, pure bliss.
Bliss is not obtained through
insurmountable conditions; bliss can only be obtained through putting no
conditions on anything and become all of what is.
As I have personally experienced on most
forums, you are not allowed to express anything that seems to threaten the
control the ego has over the pleasure centre in any sense. So many people are
putting more conditions on themselves and others, not less, to protect the
control of the ego has over the pleasure centre of the mind. What do these
insurmountable conditions denote? Limitations, this simply means we are
limiting ourselves more, not less. I suppose this figures as more people these
days seem to desire to be more control. How many conditions are there for
someone to be in control? The more control we desire, the more conditions there
are, of course the more control we experience or desire, the more conditions
(limitations) we put on upon ourselves and others around us.
I will put it this way by using our present
environment. A lot of people want to limit themselves to the light, of course
this takes a lot of conditions (limitations) to obtain this in the first place.
Would the Earth be as beautiful as it was if there wasn't a balance, a
moderation, of light and dark? Now imagine the light controlling the dark
through it's own conditions, it's own limitations, how beautiful would have the
Earth been then? How beautiful is the universe with it's insurmountable
contrasts of light and dark?
The light tantalises our pleasure centre
when the dark threatens our pleasure centre, but what would the light create
void of the dark, the yin void of the yang? The Earth as it was simply couldn't
have existed under such conditions, such limitations, and what a shame that
would have been for the ego not to have experienced!!
I was recently presented with a person that
is going through insurmountable trauma at present, part of the trauma brought
about by external forces also includes their partner; this of course exasperates
the trauma. By the sounds of it, my assistance is greatly assisting this person
to cope better with this said trauma.
When we seemingly have no control over
these kinds of external influences, the ego goes into spasm, basically, the ego
chucks a patty, meaning, the ego becomes infuriated. The ego simply has to have
control, or more precisely, a sense of control even when the ego is never
really in control itself, of course the ego denies it's never in control and
this is the point. When the ego grasps a hold on a judged positive, as a sense
of control is, it will deliberately stay ignorant to everything else.
Positive thinking isn't just destructive to
everything negative (dark), it's a high state of ignorance which can exasperate
trauma to the extent of hate. How many people of positive thinking hate
negative thinking (dark)? Of curse the ego in a false sense of control will
categorically refute that it hates. Purposely going into a state of ignorance
of something detestable is a form of hate to start with.
This person I'm assisting at present isn't
a naturally hating person but they mentioned hating someone, of course during
our discussion, we found that this person didn't really hate which was a load
off their mind to start with. Anger can lead to hate but anger within itself
isn't of hate. At this point the ego is simply infuriated not being in control,
only when the ego has no or little control can anger lead to hate. How many
people hate being negative or of expressing the ego? It is obvious to people
like me it's got to this point of hating, probably primarily due to our present
reality being so hatful and destructive.
When people like me express balance and
moderation in these circumstances, we are often put down by people who are
either of one or the other. The ego simply has to have or take control in these
circumstances, any other way is simply deliberately ignored (refuted) or put
down (degraded). Yes, people like me are hated for expressing balance and
moderation; this has been too obvious from an ego trying to gain more and more
control. This reminds me of religious fanatics and multinational who just
simply can't get enough control. Any kind of detesting is a form of hate; this
includes detesting not having or gaining more and more control and the
detestation of negatives (darkness).
What I have gone through in certain parts
of my life would be judged by many positive thinking people and of love and
light people of being negative (dark). If you simply have no awareness of one
or the other, dark of the light, positive of the negative, how would you
truthful be able to assist people in this kind of reality? By preaching and
destroying everything not positive and of love and light!!
How many people are trying to help other
people by influencing others of their way of control while deliberately staying
ignorant to what they detest themselves?
Multinational detest being poor and not being in control. Religious
fanatics, positive thinking people and people only of love and light are exactly
the same, but their egos will tell them otherwise as always. If I didn't go
through the life I did, would I have a right to even try to assist people in
trauma? How many people on the net are doing just this? It's insurmountable while at the same time
being deliberately ignorant to most of what is, even to balance and moderation.
To live in ignorance of everything except
of one idealism, isn't awareness and is certainly not of a true sense of
positive being or of love and light, for there is simply no true sense of love
and awareness in ignorance, especially when it's deliberate.
I have spoken to a number of people on
this. A pure sense of awareness is love and light, being that light and love is
this pure awareness state, for example, Buddhism speaks of this pure awareness.
You simply can't get into this state while detesting everything else not of
this state, in any sense, for this pure aware state is not of a controlling ego
that has to be in control in one way or another. As soon as the ego labels this
state as love and/or light, it's of a controlling ego and of ignorance to
everything that is not of itself.
I often say to people to just walk away if
any form of control is causing you trauma, of course the ego desires to
anything but just simply walk away, it desires to take back control even to the
point of hating. Hate and detesting anything gives the ego a sense of control
when in actuality the ego is less in control. This person I am trying to assist
now realises that any sense of hate or detestation is in actuality a loss of
control. As I have said before, you need to use the ego against itself. Give
the ego a sense of control but in a more truthful manner.
How many multinationals are in control of
their greed and power mongering? How many people of positive thinking and of
love and light are truly in control when they are purposely existing in
ignorance? It's impossible for any of
these people to truthfully assist other people not of their own. Yes, they can
deceptively influence people but not honestly because an ego that desires to
take control is anything but truthful.
This pure awareness state that seems like
love and light to the ego is simply not about control, it's simply being that
is everything of this awareness which of course includes an ego in control.
Everything is because there is no control, only a false sense of control.
To put it simply, I could not truthfully
assist people in trauma if it wasn't for my own traumas in life and especially having
an awareness of the controlling ways of the ego. You
simply need to be aware while avoiding all extremes when applicable to
truthfully assist other people.
The egos control over us is evident. The
present environment in the world reflects this in more ways than one, extreme
expressions in religion and materialism are but two examples of the control the
ego has over us. Within this control, we can see how destructive a controlling the
ego can be, in actuality, we are privileged to witness this event in human
Awareness comes in many forms and has no
limitations to it's expressions, only can the ego limit awareness to certain
set boundaries......Mathew G
Within the whisperings, an ego that is
wised up only needs to be whispered to, not shouted at. Simply, expressions of
extremism denote shouting while whisperings denote an awareness and wisdom.
Some of us have listened to the whisperings, a lot of us will only listen when
shouted at, this is simply shown within the extreme expressions being expressed
today. In the end, the shouting will get that loud, and of course destructive,
to the point most people will be unable to ignore the shouting, they will be
given no choice at this point.
Where indeed has the wisdom gone when a
consciousness needs to be shouted at to become aware?
We are privileged to be shouted at in this
way, imagine not being able to hear a whisper or a shout to awaken the ego to
itself, is it possible that the ego can actually get to this point? Honestly
observing our environment today, it is obvious certain people will never listen
no matter how loud the shouting becomes, and yes, the ego has this extent of
control over them.
A controlling ego gives us a sense of
control over our environment, even though this control is always fleeting. How
many empires of the past still dominate us today? Yes, the controlling factors
of the ego are still around today but the empires themselves aren't. Nothing
that the ego creates lasts for long; the only reason the controlling factors of
the ego are still around today, is because we have not yet learnt how to
release ourselves from this control.
simply does not come from knowledge and experience,
this is an ego perception. Considering how deceptive the ego can become, it's
amazing that many of us are still duped (tricked) by the ego in this way.
How many centuries have human consciousness
been warring or expressing extremes? Has human consciousness learnt and become
wise from these numerous experiences?
Human consciousness is seemingly more
intelligent and knowledgeable than ever, how wise has this truly made us?
How many people think wisdom and awareness
are about taking control? Probably the same amount of people who think
meditation or various other Eastern practices are about taking control. Eastern
practices, like mediation, are simply about releasing yourself from the control
of the ego mind. As soon as we think these practices are about taking control,
we have lost the true benefits of these practices because the ego is just as
much if not more in control. All controlling expressions denote an ego in
control, especially if we are trying to control the ego. At no point should you
try to control the ego to diminish the egos control over us, by doing so, you
are doing anything but diminishing the egos control.
Wisdom uses the ego against itself as all
motion denotes ego, including practices like meditation. Yes, meditation is a
motion that can take away the controlling factors of the ego upon itself,
in-effect, using the ego against itself. The only reason this works is that we are
using a non-controlling ego to diminish the control of the ego upon itself. It's
funny to think this but the ego can only control itself, basically, only of
things of motion, sadly for a lot of people in the West; this includes using
mediation to take control instead of releasing control.
How many people in the West think that
Taoism or Tai Chi is about taking control of our mind and/or body? It's all
about releasing our mind and body from the limitations of control that allow
you to be more flexible and open in mind and body. In the West, we tend to
think everything is about taking control; this is the way Western culture is,
it's wise to be aware of this in my mind.
How many people in the West fear expressing
the ego or egotism? They fear the ego because they are still trying to take
control of the ego having control over them, which is in actuality the ego
trying to take control. It is truly wise to be aware that only a controlling
ego can take control, being that all motion is of the ego, this makes perfect
sense to people like me. Simply, if you are expressing any kind of motion, you
are of the ego, however, you don't have to be of the controlling ego.
1/ Become aware that all control denotes a
controlling ego in control
2/ Become aware that you can wise the ego
up to it's controlling ways, the ego can certainly become conditioned to
releasing all control over taking control over all
3/ Wisdom is simply aware of the
controlling ways of the ego as only in wisdom can the ego diminish the control
of the ego.
4/ Wisdom is simply not obtained through
experience and knowledge but an awareness beyond the ego limitations. Yes, you
can become aware and wises through experiences and knowledge but only if we
stop trying to persistently take control. All control is limiting and of the
5/ Simply think about releasing control to
Do we not take control of our breathing
while meditating for example? Are we not trained by teachers of the ancient
Eastern practices to take control of the mind and body as a whole?
No, your ego is simply being conditioned to
focus on one thing at a time. Your ego is not being controlled to focus but
conditioned to focus. Because the ego tries to control everything within it's
own environment, it is conditioned to simultaneously focus on many things.
Focusing on the breath, to controlling the breath, allows us to take away the
control of the ego over itself. Basically what you are doing is setting the ego
free of it's limitations by focusing instead of controlling. Never try to
control your breath while meditating, simply focus.
Once you have conditioned your ego to focus
on one thing while letting go of control of everything else, you will notice
that your breathing patterns will change quite naturally. The ego will fight to
the bitter end to keep it's control, this is why everything that isn't about
control is perceived to be of control by the ego in control.
One more thing, you are releasing the ego
of it's own controlling ways by not taking control but releasing control. You
are actually doing the ego a favour for within the egos control it is limited,
however, no ego desires to become aware of it's own limitations upon itself, so
it will do anything to deceive itself of it's own self-created
You now and again, through the passage of
life, come across people who are deeply reflective, a bloke I have known for
some time now of the name of Michael Hopkins is but one of these people. Mike's
poems seem to reflect an awareness beyond the control of the controlling ego
expressions. To an ego in control, Mike's poems would seem non-sequential
rhetoric to the ego mind, very simular to my own reflections. As of any
experience in the offering, the ego in control usually misses out in these
experiences that are on offer.
This kind of awareness and subsequent
experiences that are beyond the expressions of a controlling ego, is often
taken to be egotistic by the ego mind. It's amazing how the ego mind stops us
from experiencing the true reality of life, in turn, stopping our mind from
becoming aware beyond the ego mind. When you go beyond the ego mind, there is
simply no misery mainly because there is no separation, only in separation
(unawareness) can a consciousness suffer within it's own misery.
good point Mike, how could a true sense of love become aware to the ego mind?
been there recently for me to write about how the ego mind isn't aware of all
it experiences. How often does a child's ego mind, especially in adolescence,
refute the full existence of their parents love and affection? They are often
quite unaware, especially when the parent/parents are in a teaching mode, in
other words preparing the child for adulthood trials and tribulations.
often is the macho ego mind of an adult not fully aware of their partner's full
love, affections and feelings? How aware is an egoistic female?
wife or I make a mess in the house; it matters not who cleans it up because
it's always our mess. A true sense of love is binding, a false
sense of love is separating. Love and light is a prime example of this
separation from dark, of course the dark is only as negative as the light
perceives. In a lot of couple's relationships, a mess made by the other partner
is seen as a negative so they don't clean it up or clean it up under protest.
My wife and I have a neutral existence/relationship, everything is neutral with
no separation of negative or positive, dark and light, within this, we become
aware of the experiences beyond the egos control.
experiences are there but the ego mind either doesn't become aware of them or
turns them it something the ego mind relates to. The ego mind is seemingly unable
to comprehend anything it can't relate to so these experiences are either not
noticed or they are turned into something the ego relates to. In this sense of
turning an experience into something the ego can relate to is of deception.
all experience so much, especially the experiences that are not picked up through
the five senses. People like you and I are very lucky Mike.
Indeed we are Mat. Makes living in the world a bit
easy to have some slight distance from the dictates of ego. Happy weekend Mat
and same to your dear wife.
you don't mind Mike, I'm going to insert your reflection here on my post. You
are a very in-depth and reflective person Mike, I am very lucky to have crossed
your path in life.
"Only can the ego awaken to itself through
it's own inner reflections"......Mathew G
Are people like Mike and I egoistic in the
way we express ourselves within our writings?
"Only the ego mind can judge what is
and isn't of the ego"......Mathew G
To express an awareness is ego but not necessarily
of a controlling ego, in actuality, a controlling ego is anything but aware,
for all a controlling ego can comprehend is ego. This basically means a
controlling ego is only aware of it's own reflections, anything beyond these
reflections just simply doesn't exist to the ego. This simply means that
anything that the ego is aware of, like what people like Mike and I write
about, has to be egoistic.
"There is a point were the ego is wise
or wised up to itself, only then is the ego able to make itself fully
The ego needs ego to make itself aware of
itself. Seen as all motion denotes ego, this includes writings based in inner
reflections. It's difficult to avoid this and at no time should this be
avoided. "A controlling ego desires to stay ignorant, for it is only of
itself and about itself, nothing else exists to the ego in control". Used
correctly, the ego can be exceptionally enlightening, however, this can only
occur if it doesn't judge it's own ego self as something to avoid and detest,
basically, have fear upon it's own
"It is wise to never fear being
expressive of the ego for only in this fear is the ego in total
Try making the ego aware of itself through
non-egoistic reflections; it simply will not occur as the ego is unaware of
anything not of itself. The ego needs ego reflections to become aware of
itself; it's this simple. Again, the ego used correctly is exceptionally
enlightening to the ego mind, only can this occur though when the ego is not in
control of the mind.
"The mind is what we make it to be. If
it's of ego, ego it will be. If it's of pure awareness, pure awareness it will
My wife and I have a female garden nursery
owner in awe. I'm usually jovial and I joke around a lot, especially in
relation to my wife. This alone has this lady in awe, sadly, it would seem this
lady has experienced very little of this from her partner/partners in her life.
When my wife mentioned about how I cook,
wash and wipe the dishes, clean the house, this lady was even more in awe. I
don't think we will mention about how I iron my own clothes and make the bed
every morning, etc.
To someone who is macho (egocentric), I am
completely under the thumb, meaning, being under my wife's control, however,
all I am doing is existing in a neutral existence with my wife. The ego in
control simply can't comprehend this, there has to be a form of control, not of
It's simply amazing how the ego in control
stops us from experiencing the things in life that are enlightening and working
in harmony together as one, I suppose after all, the ego in control is anything
but aware of anything that is not of itself!!
It's really interesting how
the worst of times can either make us more aware or more unaware, in other
words less controlling or more controlling. Indeed, the more aware we become the
less controlling we are and the less abuse we express as control is always linked to being abusive.
Consider this, how many people want to change this controlling abusive environment?
We must remember, a non-controlling abusive consciousness is in an environment of
control and abuse, we are the one's in their environment not the other way
around, this gives us no right to change their environment, in other words be controlling
and abusive over their environment in anyway.
However, we do have a right to
influence our immediate environment and to disallow any controlling abusive
ways to influence us. This of course is always going to be difficult for us to
do at times, after all, we are not existing in a non-abusive non-controlling reality
to begin with.
In recent days, my world has
been sort of turned up side down emotionally, my siblings are, in my mind,
reacting quite badly to my mothers imminent demise, in actuality, they are
abusing my mother, my wife and myself. When
I stepped back and observed what is going on, all I could see is an excessive
amount of control, such expressions of excess will of course create a very abusive
My siblings and myself were
brought up in an abusive controlling family environment, my siblings obviously reacted
to this in one way and I the other. They seemed to have allowed themselves to become
conditioned to the abuse and control where's I allowed this abuse and control
to make me more aware of the destructive attributes of control therefore abuse.
Yes, any sense of control is abuse in one way or another, only a controlling
ego would say otherwise.
The following exchange between
a friend of many years ago and myself on facebook is as follow.
Gina HodgkinI have done the same. I also blocked them. I'm so sick of
the lies that continues to come out of that person mouth. It is sad when you
are left with no choice but cut off other family members because of someone
else's bad behaviour. I feel for you
think the thing is, we are past being controlling and abusive but of course
being controlling themselves, they want to force their own controlling ways
onto us all the times.
were actually born within their environment, it was controlling so any consciousness
that isn't controlling in the same way, will of course feel out of tune with
their environment. I don't want to change their environment, all I want to do
is be allowed to be within my own environment, this of course is going to be
hard to do within such a controlling environment. People like you and I are
always going to have to ward off other consciousness's controlling ways, this
is their environment after all, we are actually existing within their environment.
My older brother sees himself as some kind of spiritual
guru, he got upset with me because I was expressing personal family experiences,
the thing is, we don't even own our own thoughts, therefore, how could we have actual
personal experiences. My spiritual guru brother is obviously still into ownership.
We don't own anything and that's a huge relief to me but to anyone into control
and abuse, the thought of not even owning your own thoughts is psychologically
catastrophic to them. It's like a drug addict, any hint of taking their comfort
blanket away from them is psychologically catastrophic to them, this is why
they so often lash out at anyone threatening their addictions and fixations.
You don't need to feel for me Gina, even though I do
appreciate your kind loving thoughts. I've leant so much from my abusive
controlling family. Unlike my siblings who are conditioned to abuse, abuse made
me aware, I did not allow the abuse I've experienced to condition me to abuse.
Even though my mother was quite abusive in her life,
she doesn't deserve being abused. My mother knew no other way to be, I understand
that completely. Yes, like myself she could have rectified this but I think the
life she chose wasn't conductive to this.
Keep well and Happy Gina, life is full of pitfalls but
from this, comes light but only if we keep pulling ourselves out of these pits
and don't become a part of the pit.
PS By the way, thanks, I knew I had to write about my recent occurrences
but I didn't know how to write it, our discussion is going to be a part of my
post on my blog.
We might look at my emotional
reactions as being expressive of the ego, well of course it is, if I wasn't supposed
to react in this way, I wouldn't have the realisation of being human. The realisation
of being human goes in hand with being expressive of the ego, I'm not then
going to judge this being one thing or another, it is what it is, the human realisation
and experiences of ego.
The type and excessiveness of
the ego we express, is determined in how we have allowed such a controlling abusive
environment to condition ourselves. I was lucky enough to be born in a very controlling
family environment, yes, I did say lucky because if it wasn't for this environment,
there is no way I would be as aware as I am now of this collective controlling abusive environment
we all exist in.
I think it's important to
create your own environment within this controlling abusive collective
environment. Within this awareness, it's important to also to try not to control
and change this collective environment for all this will do, like a drug
addict, cause a reaction!!
Indeed, don't be fooled, control
and abuse is addictive therefore it is wise and advisable not to outwardly
change their own environment we are presently experiencing. Yes, we know, there
is a better more constructive way to exist but they don't want this, they want to
stay addicted to control and abuse and yes, they too have a right to do this especially
within their own environment!!
We are the foreign matter or aliens
within an environment that is alien to non- abusive and non-controlling consciousness's,
this is obvious!!
In my mind we couldn't be more blessed if we tried, all we
need to do to become aware of how blessed we are is to observe how truly blessed
we are, this act alone will bring a peace on earth that will be beyond most
people's comprehension. I will explain this by firstly sharing a reply I received
in regards to my last post.
It will never cease to amaze me - just how far
my ego will go to distract me from my priorities..
you can't be meek and mild, this however doesn't mean we can't be beautiful and
passively peaceful within our mentality and behaviour.
Jesus and Buddha in particular are very good examples of this, how
controlling were they? They weren't controlling therefore of the ego, they were
however aware and wise, this is one of the reasons why I advocate awareness and
wisdom over and above control. For example, as soon as the churches became
controlling, they lost what these people were trying to teach in my mind.
I don't get it, we are only relating our meekness/timidnessto a beautiful and passive peaceful
existence and mentality, to feel this beauty and a passive peacefulness, we
have to be meek/timid, this also means, to create a more harmonious existence,
we have to become meek. I'm wondering, how many people think this but also
think at the same time we have to take control especially over ourselves which doesn't
include a lot of our desires/lusts strangely enough? I've come across this quite
but firm: You can be meek/timid at the same time being firm and rigid,
especially in relation to the controlling ego. Dispelling the ego takes, at times,
a lot of firmness within oneself, this doesn't mean you are no longer meek/timid.
It's also interesting why I use the word dispelling, it means to firmly disperse,
was Buddha timid when faced with his controlling ego? He was firm within his resolutions
but timid within his expressions. Jesus and Buddha are prime examples of
expressing a firmness and at the same time being timid within this expression, in
other words they had to be very assertive but at the same time being timid
within this assertiveness.
How many people who are primarily expressive of love are firm
within their assertiveness of this love? Most of these people would advocate
that they are not firmly assertive but they would be quite incorrect within
this perception, to themselves, they just come across as being timid within
their nature. Try talking about hate or a another subject they find distasteful,
you won't get to far with this, the reason for this is they are very firm and assertive
of their own views and vibrations. It is obvious you can be firmly assertive
and at the same moment be meek/timid within our whole being.
is however quite a huge difference between people like Jesus and Buddha and
people who just want to be meek/timid. People like Jesus, Buddha, Rumi, Confucius,
used awareness and wisdom to dispel the controlling ego not control it. You
might think it took a huge amount of control for Buddha to become enlightened,
he had to dispel he's controlling ego within it's entirety, this is no small
feat to anyone fixated to the controlling ego in any sense. Buddha did try at first
to control he's controlling ego tendencies, it however wasn't happening for him
though. The reason it wasn't happening was due to that he was trying to control the ego within by
taking away all he's Earthly desires and even he's needs, this however all
changed when he started to observe himself I believe instead of just being a participator.
Trying to control our egoistic tendencies is being a
participator and a participator to the ego. When Buddha observed himself, he saw this, what
he did then was simple, he let go of being a participator to the ego. You see
it was the ego still in control as it was the ego in the first place that
influenced him to try to control the ego within himself, he observed that he
was just as expressive of the ego as ever, this was until he observed himself I
believe. Once he observed himself, he became aware and wise within his expressions
and being which is all that is needed to dispel the controlling ego. When you
are truly aware in how destructive and disruptive a controlling ego can be, you
wisely dispel such expressions, you realise all what these expressions will create
is chaos, destruction and disharmony. What truly wise person would create such
a reality to begin with? To be able to create such a reality takes a lot of
controlling ways and very little wisdom and awareness.
Now Jesus was a little different in the way he became
enlightened, he didn't start off with trying to control the controlling ego, this I believe was due to his humble beginnings
unlike Buddha who was born into luxury and prestige. Buddha actually had a lot
more to contented with in relation to the controlling ego within himself. It's
funny to think that Jesus was actually a lot luckier than Buddha, he was already
humbled where Buddha still needed to be humbled.
It's really amazing that these two quite different transformation
still ended up at the same point of enlightenment and mentality, within this difference
alone we have a lot to learn from, we couldn't be more blessed in my mind.
honest, what I have written here came through me, in other words what is primarily
written here was just channelled through to me, please don't take it as being
gospel in any sense.
Indigo: How can
we exist without some form of control? The answer is simple, observe children
that are brought up in an environment void of the conditioning of control. In my
case, the children I observed where what is known as indigo children, indigo
children being of our more natural abilities void of egotism. When you take egotism
out of our conditioning, you will notice our natural abilities will automatically
came back, this is to me is what is known as indigo children.
In my observation of these children there was no control, especially
between siblings and peers. Yes, parents of these children were seemingly
controlling through their protection and teachings but this isn't control, it
is however a natural cycle of protection and teachings very much like the rest
of the animal kingdom.
In a herd situation, you seemingly have dominant male and
female presence, to anyone brought up with controlling conditioning, this
dominance is going to be naturally presumed as control when all it is, is an
indication of protection and teachings. I think an indigo family unit is a very
good indication of a conditioning that is actually void of actual control.
Natural Cycles: Now
the difference between the rest of the animal kingdom and man is egotism which
brings on an urge to take control, this is instead of existing by natural cycles.
Any form of egotism wants to take control, it basically doesn't like being
influenced by natural cycles, this is quite different in a true indigo family
unit and the rest of the animal kingdom and this is another thing, our egos
don't like being connected with the rest of it's natural environment either. This
kind of mentality is sadly enough worsening, this is especially apparent in the
way we are destroying the rest of the animal kingdom and the environment as a whole,
if it can't be used to our advantage, we destroy it, if it can, we destroy it through
controlling it to serve our egotism.
What I am saying here is, any form of control indicates
egotism, not just the ego, however, it's
important not to confuse this control with our natural abilities of protecting,
teaching and nurturing, one is of ego, the other of egotism. This also includes
protecting, teaching and nurturing ourselves, I think it's important to
When we learn from others to better protect, teach and
nurture ourselves, we are actually going with the flow of our natural cycles,
this however changes if the protection, teachings and nurturing are more about
control. In other words, when the protection, teachings and nurturing are more
based on egotism than ego, this is a good indication of a conditioning purely based
Substance: In actuality, the less control we express, the more harmonious
will be the reality we create. In the animal kingdom, when an animal isn't
being hunted or hunting or influenced by other natural stressful occurrences,
they exist in pure bliss, however, a human being conditioned by control, can never
exist in this kind of pure bliss, why? Because the ego has a never ending thirst
or desire for more and more, the more it desires, the more it destroys and
Feeding our egotism through control, will only create a very
fleeting transitory bliss, mainly because anything usually created through control,
is in rejection or opposition to the natural cycles we exist in. One thing to consider
here though, it's also natural for egotism to reject an existence controlled by
natural cycles, this kind of existence however will create quite a chaotic
existence as you could imagine. Any other force in oppositions to these natural
cycles, will naturally and automatically create realities of chaos.
But we don't desire this kind of reality, so what do we do,
we still use control to create a better existence, it's however quite obvious
this isn't working because we are still using the very same thing that created
the chaotic reality we are trying to change, control. This was going to naturally
occur because we are conditioned from birth to control and be controlled.
It's strange to think that the people who desire to change
this reality into something more constructive, haven't learnt from their
environment, it's control that has caused us to create a chaotic environment in
the first place, you can't use the same thing that created a chaotic reality to
create a more harmonious reality. We might think here it's all to do with the
way we use control, the thing with control is it has nothing to do with protecting,
teaching and nurturing, yes, the ego will tell us otherwise but our environment,
when observed void of controlling conditioning, tells us something quite
different, usually the truth that the ego doesn't like and will most likely
Now we might also think the weather, like the animal kingdom,
is all about control and controlling us but it's not. The weather is all about
a natural cycle, this is until man influences this cycle through his controlling
conditioning that is. Yes, the weather is influential but it's not influentially
controlling, the weather isn't trying to influence us for it's own means, it's
just going through it's natural cycles without any intentions. This is another big
difference between man's controlling conditioning and the rest of creation, no
other part of existence exists purely based on intentions. I think it's worth
being aware, even when we have intentions to create a better existence, we are
still trying to control a chaotic existence to suite our own desires.
I look at control as a controlling substance like alcohol, illicit
drugs or smoking, they are all based on control, the funny thing is, we haven't
got control, the substance we are feeding our desires with has. In our case,
it's egotism that has got control as soon as we use control to control
ourselves and the rest of our environment.
Yes, I look at control as a intoxicating substance because
it's just as highly intoxicating as alcohol, illicit drugs or smoking, especially
when used excessively, which is usually brought about by our reaction to something
in life. Basically, as we use alcohol, illicit drugs or smoking in reaction, we
also use control in the same way and the
more we react, the more intoxicated and drug-addicted
we become to control, it of course makes us feel so good!! It's really
advisable to stay well and truly clear of control to create a more harmonious
reality in my mind, just go with the natural flow and forget about what egotism
is trying to sucker you into is my advise but as usual, I could be quite
If our controlling conditioning instantly disappeared, this
reality would turn into a reality quite unimaginable to a lot of people, it
would feel like pure bliss. This reality for some people already exists, it's
not a fallacy or wishful thinking, it's a reality based not on more control but
less control. You take away our controlling conditioning, you take away the
chaos in our lives, it's as simple as that.
