Annihilation Anxiety

2019-05-11T11:00:02+01:00

There is an extreme group today, a large percentage of the population that suffers from annihilation anxiety. Their entire existence is predicated on others victimization and suffering. There is a moral sadism associated with that. The truth is, my emancipation from my suffering and victimhood rests in my hands, and I will not allow you to expropriate my creative agency, on behalf of my life. If the purpose and meaning of your existence relies on emancipating me from my suffering and my victimization, then I basically eradicate your purpose and [...]

Hatred And Misunderstanding

2019-05-04T10:58:49+01:00

Hatred and misunderstanding occurs when someone attacks you in a severe and undeserved manner. For most of us, it’s one of the most painful emotional experiences we encounter. Not only are you the subject of a very personal kind of venom, the accusations are not true (hence the “misunderstanding”). Most of us avoid any kind of conflict so we don’t have to feel hatred and misunderstanding—however that takes away from your authentic power. This tool lets you turn hatred and misunderstanding into a strengthening experience. Focus on the attacker. If [...]

Eternal Consciousness

2019-04-27T10:41:47+01:00

When self-consciousness binds us to the illusion of space and time then we are doomed to repeat the karmic cycles of cosmic manifestation. Pain and suffering become the way of life. Subconsciousness is the agency through which egoic personality is transformed. The active agency or power at work is the transmuting force of the fire of spirit. Fire has the power to burn away the old and transform objects from one nature to another. Through this transmuting nature, the power of spirit, one manifests the conscious awareness that human life [...]

Envy, Gossip, And Impotent Rage

2019-04-20T10:26:09+01:00

Today’s pop culture, the likes and selfies of social media breed a culture cut off from life that leads to unmitigated narcissism and envy. Gossiping is a sure sign you are asleep and part of a powerful self-destructive myth, named by Freud “Destrudo,” a misdirection of the libido and creative force. This is a powerful self-annihilating aspect bourn of the drama concomitant with the consensus trance. Those who gossip, are envious, jealous and caught in highly configured narcissism and impotent rage. Those who gossip are leaky containers and cannot be [...]

Enlightening The Shadow

2019-03-23T09:49:46+00:00

"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however is disagreeable, and therefore not popular." Carl Jung We are not just what we think we are. We are also what we think we are not. Each of us forms a sense of our personality based on our capabilities and virtues. We also define ourselves by the characteristics that we reject. If dad or mom seems rageful and dangerous, we may grow up rejecting awareness of our own anger. We [...]

Dynamic Inversion

2019-03-16T09:34:35+00:00

This tool helps you control your impulses for immediate gratification. This may include food, drugs, sex, etc. we all have emotional habits that are gratifying in subtle ways and yet that weaken us. The most common examples are projecting our anger out on others or “spilling” our anxieties out on them. Pick an impulse you struggle with (sugar craving, or yelling at your spouse). Think of this impulse as traveling out to the world through a “lower” channel that you can close off. Do this by associating the pain behind [...]

Defense Mechanisms

2019-03-09T09:17:36+00:00

How can you communicate with people who seem to be out of touch with reality and rational thought? Once you understand why these people behave so irrationally, you can communicate more effectively with them. PROJECTION A neighbor was insistent that people have no right to carry firearms because he didn't want to be murdered if one of his neighbors had a "bad day.” I responded by asking him why he thought his neighbors wanted to murder him, and, of course, got no response. How does my neighbor "know" that his [...]

Budha’s Wisdom

2019-03-02T09:09:31+00:00

Siddhartha Gautama, known as the Buddha, or "Enlightened One," died in 480 B.C. his wisdom lives on. "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." "Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else." "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense." "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone [...]

Basic Truth

2019-02-23T08:53:31+00:00

In recognizing the basic truth, I am here, one has the opportunity to be welcomed here, to welcome yourself here, and to welcome what else has appeared here and now, in whatever state you find yourself.   I invite you to tell the truth, as completely as possible, about what is here now. You probably have particular feelings that are here in the moment. Can you welcome them? When feelings change, you are still here. Feelings change, which may be a good thing or a bad thing, and you remain. Here remains. Here [...]

Cockroach Theory

2019-12-12T00:32:45+00:00

Cockroach Theory A beautiful speech by Sundar Pichai an IIT MIT Alumnus and Global Head Google Chrome: The Cockroach Theory for Self Development At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach. Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky. The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but ...it landed [...]
