I think perhaps popular spirituality can cause post traumatic distress so severe that we move to the opposite extreme of the opinions that traumatized us. I think that is how some of us might attempt to take our power back even if it's false power. I see that happening with religion (from fundamentalism to... Continue Reading →
Did you know that we are all born with a built-in inner-guidance system? The only reason we might not realize it's there is because we have been programmed to blindly submit to authority. Authority worship was taught in school and at home from when we were impressionable little people. Now as adults, we don't know... Continue Reading →
I joined this health cult/group back in the summer of 2014 and we all got cocky thinking we were deprogramming when in reality we were only REprogramming our minds with new programs. Same prison; different floor tiles. Now my deprogramming journey is not only about deprogramming from mainstream ideologies but also newage/truther ideologies. It's all... Continue Reading →
Life can be tricky. There's trusting every person and being suspicious of every person. Both sides are ruled by fear. The key to balance is thinking and intuition. Judging case by case and being discriminating is the action of a wise person not ruled by their past (fear).
This is my perception as to why it is so difficult to understand one another and why some conversations need to end. The reason why it's so difficult to understand each other is because I think we're living in different bubbles (dimensions, frequencies). Each dimension or bubble we live in has different laws of the... Continue Reading →
What is common sense? Is there such a thing? Is it common? We think one needs to have a degree to understand humans, for example. It doesn't make sense, though. Nobody needs a degree to understand who they are and what makes them and others tick. We are living as humans; what's there not to... Continue Reading →
I provide a couple reasons as to why we become emotionally unstable when we hear information that competes with the information we were brought up to believe about the world. Nothing should ever be controversial to talk about. Everything should be up for grabs. Any topic. So, why can't we have an emotionally-detached conversation without... Continue Reading →
I do not enjoy people who are dishonest, but at the same time, these charlatans are a blessing in disguise because they are teaching all of us to think for ourselves. How would we ever learn to discern, question authority and think critically if all we ever heard was truth? We need to be fooled... Continue Reading →
After several readings from several psychics over the last several months, I am happy to report that I have had transformative, helpful and meaningful experiences from very generous caring humans. However, I would like to say that I got the help I needed due to my ability to filter out information that does not resonate.... Continue Reading →
The fact that we can find a for-argument, an on-the-fence argument and an against-argument on most topics on the internet is a good thing! If you ever wake up one day and all that exists is one opinion, that's when I'd start to worry. In a world where cult-mentalities are mainstream and where we need... Continue Reading →
There is no room for the Individual in the hivemind. There is no room for Truth in the group. Individuals were never designed to 'fit in'; we were designed to honor our unique spark and stand out. The nail that sticks out gets hammered down. Let them hammer you. If you are true to yourself,... Continue Reading →
I sometimes wonder why people think a certain way and then judge it. At face value, their thinking might not make sense from my little bubble. Then the wiser part of me responded saying "You need to take your car and park it into their garage before you even begin to understand why they do... Continue Reading →
When there are two polarizing opinions competing against one another on the grand stage, I wonder if the truth might be somewhere in between. I sometimes wonder if life is all about the different shades of gray as opposed to the establishment-authorized black-and-white choice system. Question everything. Life might not be about one or the... Continue Reading →
Has anyone ever examined what culture really is? What is culture other than man-made rules that dictate how one should behave and live. Dead men made most of it up. Culture can compromise individuality so that when someone is authentic and living to the beat of their own drum, they are marginalized. Individuals are a... Continue Reading →
If we believe that something is negative, then it is negative. If we associate pain with "bad", then so shall it be. If we believe that tarot cards and gemstones can be destroyed by energy, then they can. If we believe that our cards are always safe, then so they shall be. For me, everything... Continue Reading →
I really do feel like it's all made up. This 7 minute lecture keeps me from taking myself and life too seriously. I do have to take life seriously, but sometimes I go overboard and there's nobody like Benjamin Smythe to help me lighten up. https://youtu.be/eo5HtBTpFO4
The Importance of self-experimentation and trusting the Self when committing to healing modalities and dieting: Truth might not live outside us like we might think it does. We can only know what works and what doesn't through personal experience, through our mistakes and through our own inner wisdom and guidance. It is great to listen... Continue Reading →
When we allow others to have their own opinion without trying to censor them, we are practicing love; we are probably becoming free ourselves. Refuting claims others make is fine; censorship is a different animal. Censorship not only oppresses others, but it imprisons the oppressors more than anyone else. When we give the gift of... Continue Reading →
I was just thinking every point of view is like an outfit. Just like we have all these clothes to wear and how it's so much fun to try on different clothes and wear them for a day or a period of time in our lives, I find the same with opinions. Maybe people aren't... Continue Reading →
As our souls expand, we might peacefully hold two opposing views in our minds at once. For example, you can hold a view that life is hard and how this planet is hell all the while having a knowing that everything has purpose, everything is perfect and going as it should be. See how those... Continue Reading →
As a member of some Facebook groups, I hear often in both dietary and spiritual communities questions like "Should I trust this person?" People ask about books, authors, doctors, gurus and so on. We should always read everything with a discriminating mind at all times. We don't gain to blindly believe or blindly doubt anything.... Continue Reading →
The ability to stretch and bend your mind outside of sitting on and defending/protecting your beliefs is a commendable trait.
Being wrong is death for some people and they may go on into their adult lives trying to prove they are right. Liberation is only found in being OK with being wrong and having no problem admitting you are sometimes wrong and there are some things you just don't know.
We judge intelligence by how well someone can remember, regurgitate, obey or how well they use language. However, true intelligence is measured by one's ability to wonder, to be curious, to question authority and social ingrained norms, as well as the ability to think critically and independently of the herd, large or small. And the... Continue Reading →
How can we expect to have a partner or a spouse in a relationship that works when we can't even be ourselves around that person? Do we really want to have a partner that doesn't think we are good enough as we are? If we have to modify our face, our hair, our clothes, our... Continue Reading →
We can argue all day long about the "truth", but unless we have personal experience with it, unless we can be objective critics of that experience, and unless we have some common sense carried over from intuition and previous lifetimes, we are only just making noise. You can find a study that suits your bias... Continue Reading →
Do we see the world through rose-colored glasses or boogieman-colored glasses? Well, as I see it, both lenses have the potential to disempower us. We may have been lied to, betrayed, and fooled many times. And this taught us to close our hearts and minds and as a result, we trust nobody outside our family... Continue Reading →
Loneliness is freedom because you're no longer bound to other people's opinions. Loneliness is freedom because you no longer play the telephone game and repeat what you hear. Loneliness is freedom as you have become your own Authority. You think for yourself and are OK being alone in how you view the world. You think... Continue Reading →
If I learn anything at all every day, it's that the world, humans, Spirit, Life, Death, God and the Universe is much more complicated than can even be imagined. My mind is constantly being blown, challenged and bended. The beginning of wisdom is the ability to entertain any idea or philosophical theory without automatically accepting... Continue Reading →
Blind belief and blind disbelief are two sides of the same coin.
