Feeling good

Tuned in to Life Force

There are many people in the world who have very little interest in religion. Fair play to them. You don’t need religion to live a happy life, especially when you are young, beautiful, full of yourself and feel like the world is your oyster (when you feel like that, it is). These people may find that in about 15-20 years’ time, they have more questions and are seeking answers to those questions. Religion may be the answer to those questions. I hope it never comes to that.

When I see people who are full of themselves; attractive people, I love it. It fills me up. It means that I also feel full of myself, and I am recognising how I feel being reflected back to me in resonance in another state. I love to see beautiful young people, as they haven’t spend enough time fussing and worrying about what they can’t do in life, they still feel that they can be, do, or have anything; that life is going to work out for them.

Young people are more attractive because they feel better more of the time, and they feel better more of the time because they think optimistically about their chances in life, they are open to their success, and they don’t dose their desires with a big ol’ bucket of ‘reality’. They are still willing to dream, and allow themselves to do it frequently (normally in private so as not to be talked out of their dreams).

Ageing isn’t about years, it’s about the resistance which is usually picked up over those years. Some people are still fun and playful in their 80’s and they have the demeanour and the attitude and physicality of a much younger person. Others are barely into their thirties and they are grumpy, tired and brow beaten by life. Why are younger people more attractive that older people? They feel better to be with, on the whole. Right down to the little babies a few months old.

This bird feels awesome, and doesn’t care what you think of him. He is amazing to behold in all his alignment.

The closer a human being is to the source from whence they came, the more tuned in to the energy of love they are. The more an individual flows that love, the more they are in tune with that energy, the more attractive they are. People want to be with them. People want to hear them, to see them, to touch them, to lick them. They look amazing because they feel amazing. They are something incredible to behold.

Religion is a man made creation, conjured up to explain man’s fall from grace at the hands of those who went before.

The next time you see someone truly magnificent, with all of their feathers puffed up, ask yourself how you feel about them. Feel pleased for them? You probably feel like that too. Feel like they are arrogant, or proud, or cocky? You probably don’t feel like that yourself, and are finding their higher vibration annoying, and hard to take. It doesn’t resonate, it is like a dissonant chord to the vibration of your being.

So, religion is something which is a means to explain in words, that connection to love, to goodness, to total self-love and the confidence that comes out of it. But the fact is that if we were never talked out of loving ourselves as children, we wouldn’t ever need religion. Religion is a man made creation, conjured up to explain man’s fall from grace at the hands of those who went before. It explains the chain of pain, but does it do anything about it?

Left to our own devices as young ones, we would gravitate towards things that felt good to us (and usually away from our parents) and we would find our joyful ways in the world. It reminds me of a well known saying in the rooms. “Religion is for people who fear hell. Spirituality is for people who’ve been there”.

Get Addicted to Feeling Good

What is the root of all addiction, do you think? What is it that people are looking for in the compulsive action of the drink, the drug, the rush, the high? Why are terms like: “living for the weekend”, and “retail therapy” accepted parlance in the 21st century?

It all starts when we’re young. We are born as wise little bundles of pure love into families which are often anything but. We accept our lot, primarily because we don’t know any different. The cannibal child grows up to be a cannibal, because ‘that is the way things are done round here’. In the words of Philip Larkin

“They fuck you up, your mum and dad.

They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they had

And add some extra, just for you.

 

But they were fucked up in their turn

By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

And half at one another’s throats.”

We are born knowing only goodness, love and purity, but our mortal folks cannot stand the newborn spirit incarnate. Insecure in their own dysfunctional behaviour, they view the infant’s innocence and purity as too much to bear. It reminds the parent of their own sullied nature, and awakes the sadness and often rage at their own paradise lost. Just as a parent who has attended boarding school will often submit his own children to the same end, a parent will often ‘correct’ his naturally good offspring in the way that he was ‘corrected’, because he cannot bear facing the reality of what his life has become, and how different things might have been.

We’re born knowing everything we need to know, and we encounter willful adults, adults who we know more than. We put ourselves out there as the brighter, clearer, evolved species, and have the stuffing knocked out if us as we are systematically chopped down by our emotionally crippled ‘caregivers’.

We are ‘born into sin’, into the disconnected natures of those who went before, and therefore experience the loss of our connection to God at the hands of our ‘Loving’ parents, who in turn were brutalised, and their parents before them. The human condition is a chain of pain. It is possible to find ones way out the other side, but to allow the godness (goodness) of the child to prevail, we must not be threatened by it. The wrongness in our decrepit selves cannot bear the truth, and seeks to crush it, to correct it. But a person filled with the spirit of God not only bears witness to the pure young one, but knows where it is coming from (literally) and does everything they can to guide and foster the good in the young child.

As we are brutalised as young children, and wrenched from the goodness that we are, we seek solace from the emotional pain of our separation from God in activities which we find soothe or comfort us; computer games (don’t answer back or offer opinions), girls (they’re beauty is intoxicating) drinking alcohol (numbs our discomfort for at first), books and movies (hypnotic distraction) smoking pot and maybe taking harder party drugs like ecstasy and MDMA (which makes us feel love).

The more sensitive we are as individuals, the more our separation from our state of love ails us. We don’t realise it is mostly about how we have been trained (by those we grew up with) to see ourselves and the world around us, and that a simple change in perspective would start to turn it all around. But we’ve not yet found the benefit of meditation, of quieting the mind and releasing those uncomfortable thoughts. We have not yet learned that it’s ok to sit down inside a bad feeling, just acknowledging it for being what it is, not running away from it towards our usual distractions. Instead of running, we sit there and acknowledge: “I would like to feel better than I do, but I’m not going to do anything. I’m going to work this through in my mind.”

We’ve heard about the power of feeling good, that everything we want in life is because we want to feel good, and so instead of looking for the means to feel good; the girl, the new iphone, the cookies, the adrenaline fuelled activity, the joint, the binge eating, the fasting (two sides of the same coin), the compulsive shopping, we want to get right to the prize, so we start to sit there, in ourselves and start to think thoughts which feel a little better than where we currently are. For example:

“I’m doing ok, I’m having a pretty good day. I feel pretty calm and there’s nothing that I have to do right now. I am loved, if not by these people here, I know my inner being lives me. God loves me and thinks that I’m wonderful, and I’ve heard that I cannot get it wrong and I never get it done, because life is eternal. So I can’t make any mistakes. It only matters that I enjoy where I am now. I know that everything I want is about feeling good, and I’ve shown myself in the past that I can feel good regardless of what is going on in my life. I’m proud to say that I don’t need anyone to do anything differently for me to feel good. They are free to be as they be, I release them to their own lives, I give them the key to the city of freedom. I am doing pretty well where I am, I make small adjustments every day, and I am getting better and better at being selfish enough to focus in a way that makes me feel good. I am finding more and more that as I feel good, and try to hold onto that fun, easy going, free, relaxed, happy vibe, that not only do more and more people who feel like that come to me, but also I’m more likely to feel like that the next day and the next. I’m not where I ultimately want to be, but then again I never will be in that place. I will be forever changing into something more than I was, and I’m going to find ways of seeing my world in the best possible light I can. It may not be the best that I’ve ever felt, but I feel better now than I did a few minutes ago, and I did that through my own focus. I feel like I am more receptive to higher, better feeling thoughts, that I am well on my way to the path to feeling good.

Feeling good is all I want. I’ve been ‘in love’ with the world before and it was wonderful, I felt unconditional love for the world; everyone looked so beautiful, the sights and smells and sounds were exquisite. I love to feel like that, as much as I can, and I know I can do that just by focussing in a way that I feel really really wonderful. Feeling great is my place to be. I feel proud, I feel bright, I feel clever and interested, and interesting. I feel a sense of wonder at how magnificent the world is, and how cleverly all of the little pieces come together to make the whole. I like it that we are all playing our part in the game of life, working with each other and playing off each other to create these wonderful things that we do.

I love life, I’m eager for what is coming, and I appreciate the people I have in my life at the moment. I feel solid and secure and excited, and eager for more and powerful and pleased with myself. I love to do these little runs of good feeling thinking, starting where I am and building and building into better and better feeling thoughts until I am feeling myself again.

My inner being is love. I am only interested in the opinion of my inner being, that is it, nothing else matters. So when I talk myself into the same opinion as my inner being, I am in the place where I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I love feeling good, it is the only thing I care about anymore. I am addicted to feeling good.”

Fear, Feeling good, Parenting

You Have Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself

Don’t Fear Anything, Just Know what Fear Means

Does the word cult leader strike fear into your heart? Do you feel nervous or frightened when you think about being manipulated; that someone out there might have the power to assert themselves into your experience without your permission. Well, they can’t, and your emotions are explaining the whole situation to you.

What are Emotions and Why do we Have Them?

Most of our human teachers misunderstand emotions, what they are, and why we have them. They also misunderstand their power over us. Many see our emotions as an indictment of who we are. But actually our emotions are nothing more than an indication of our current vibe (vibration), and the degree to which our vibe tallies with the vibe of our source. We think that when we do something and feel bad, that it’s because we are bad, but our emotions just indicate how much our thoughts are aligned with (the same as) the thoughts of our inner being. Read on, and I’ll explain everything.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, actually, it’s not the past tense, God is still going about his work through the soil, rocks, plants, trees, water, animals and those creatures called human beings. That’s right, the life force is the God force, it is the consciousness in every living thing, and in every physical object down to the drop of water and clod of soil. Now, the source of all life is God. God is love, God is pure positivity, and God understands the Law of Attraction (see below).

The inner being, wonder child, God force, indwelling Christ, has many names. It matters not what you call that eternal, non-physical perspective of you, but it does matter enormously that you know that it is there, within you, always broadcasting thoughts to you of love, appreciation, joy, and wonder. Your emotions are your indicator of how your thoughts resonate, or deviate from the thoughts of your indwelling Christ.

God loves you unconditionally, but if you choose to criticise yourself, to view yourself in a derogatory light, you will feel what human beings call hate. It doesn’t mean that you are bad, it just means that God disagrees with your opinion of yourself, because God adores you, no matter what. God loves you Unconditionally. When your parent looked at you and told you that you were a bad child, you didn’t buy into their opinion because you knew that you were good, that God loves you no matter what, and so you disagreed with them, in the beginning at least. But they were bigger and stronger than you, and louder, and eventually they wore you down too, and when you listened to them, and agreed with their criticism of yourself, you felt bad, not because you were bad, but because your inner being adores you, and disagrees emotionally in any moment that you offer criticism of yourself or others.

Your inner God loves that other person too, yes even that guy who has taken a gun and killed a load of people. So if you condemn him or his behaviour and feel bad, it doesn’t mean that he is bad, it just means that your current opinion doesn’t resonate with the opinion of your God. Think of your attitude or vibe as being like a musical chord, and now think of your source energy, your inner being as being another chord. If you are both on the same vibe, you feel the harmony of your aligned thoughts through your emotions. But if you feel discordant, know that your thoughts are not tallying with the thoughts of your inner being. It’s like you’re playing in C# and your inner being is playing in C. In short, it’s not a pretty sound, and it doesn’t feel good.

Many teachers leave out ‘the God bit’ of the emotional explanation, and therefore the whole purpose of your emotions doesn’t make any sense to you. Any time you feel bad, it just means that your source of life, your inner being, disagrees with your current thought, with your current vibe, that’s all. If you deliberately offered thoughts of love all day, you would be in love, in love as your inner being is in love. Love is pure appreciation, and being in love is focussing in a way that resonates more purely with your inner being. You may find someone who is easy to appreciate, but that feeling (or lack of it) is all your doing.

Humans come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful ways to explain why they feel the way they do. Many see their emotions as a bad thing, something to be conquered, something to be tamed. We shouldn’t fear our emotions, we just need to understand what they mean, and if we don’t like the way we feel, we can try to find better feeling thoughts.

Live and Let Live (aka Mind your own Business)

Everyone has their own path. There are many people living situations that you wouldn’t choose for yourself, situations that are serving them extremely well. Mind your own business. Stop trying to understand why anyone would want to do that, and get on with living your own life, focussing on what you want. The current state of affairs in the world is interesting; most people have more attention on what others are doings than they have on their own lives (thanks Mr Zuckerberg).

If you try to make sense of anyone else’s life it will eventually drive you potty, ultimately to the nut house. You have lived a totally unique life, completely your own, and your inner being has been living it with you, every step along the way. Your inner being has some great ideas about the paths you should follow to get you to where you want to go. How do you get there? Feel as good as you can, resonate on the same frequency as your inner being, yes that means thoughts of love and appreciation, and kindness no matter what, then you will be living in the flow of your inner being, and receptive to the ideas, thoughts, words and deeds which will come to you, and lead you in the right direction.

If you try to get involved with what anyone else is doing, you will almost certainly mess up your own connection to your inner being, and lose all inspiration, all perspective, and get nowhere fast. Mind your own business, and feel as good as you can on a daily basis.

What About the Bad People?

I really like Tom Cruise. There, I said it. I frequently joke that he is my favourite Scientologist. I am speaking partly tongue in cheek; but I do appreciate Tom Cruise, I think he’d be fun to have round for a dinner party (if you’re up for it Tom, leave me a message below). He’s a charismatic, fun, happy guy who makes for great screen presence. Although in his fifties now, Cruise is showing no signs of slowing down. That he also enjoys reading KSW (Keep Scientology Working….apparently), and is the top of the Scientology tree is not something that I would ever hold against him.

You see, I have no idea about Cruise’s past life, and what he finds helpful as a way to find his most useful path in life, and really it’s none of my business what he does. Do I fear the Church of Scientology? No. I have no ill thoughts about it, I love the scientologists, and so I feel fine when thinking about them, and the choices they may make for themselves. What about when I see myself exploring their material? I don’t feel bad, perhaps intrigued as to what they see of value in there. What about when I see myself joining the church of Scientology? That doesn’t feel so good. So my inner guidance is telling me that particular course of action is not for me, not based upon the life I’ve been living and the thoughts and beliefs I currently hold.

So it’s not for me, but does that mean that I should start an organisation which goes out of its way to exterminate the Church of Scientology, or anything else for that matter? Need I wage a war against these ‘troublemakers’ who think differently to me, to remove these people from the face of the earth, because they disagree with how I’m living my life? Of course not. They are free to live their lives as they choose. But can’t they hurt me? Nope, unless I think about them hurting me, and therefore include them in my life.

The Law of Attraction Sorts it All Out

There will come a time in 50 years or so, when the Law of Attraction is a widely understood concept. Taught to children in school, and therefore understood by the majority of adulls. People will act on the assumption that nobody out there can assert anything into anyone else’s life, and the controlling will stop and people will have the freedom they want, and the world will be a happier place.

You get what you think about, and because nobody can think for you, other than you, you have the ultimate say in everything that comes to you in life. You are in charge.

Want to experience the baddies? Focus on them, and the horror they inflict on others and feel really bad as you look into a place that your ever-loving inner being never looks. Really make that horror a part of your current emotional state, and you will end up seeing and eventually living the essence of it yourself.

What’s that? You want to live a happy life? Then focus upon living a happy life, and appreciate the elements of your current life which are happy, which match how you want to feel, and let the world bring you more of the same.

Want to be rich? Imagine how it feels to be rich, and get familiar with that feeling until it feels like you are living that life, and attract the situations, circumstances, people to allow it to happen.

Want to be poor for the rest of your life? Moan about rich people, how unfair the system is, how rich people are greedy for taking more than their fair share (I guess you’ll be different when you’re rich, won’t you?). Write a book, start a blog, push against what you don’t want, knowing in every moment that you are feeling bad, that you are off the track and moving further away from the goodness that you are seeking.

God feels good, bad feels bad. What better incentive to look in the direction of what we want than a yukky feeling emotion in the other direction. It’s the most supreme inner guidance. It can be felt over loud music, magnificent visual distraction, any number of overbearing sensory inputs. You can always feel when to follow your gut, but whether you choose to do so, is entirely up to you.

So, you have nothing to fear but fear itself. So don’t fear anything. Just know what it means, and let your emotions guide you towards thoughts which feel better to you, which indicates that they are leading you towards things that you want, rather than things that you don’t, and leave everyone else to create the lives that they choose for themselves, knowing that they cannot affect you, unless you choose to let them.

What’s Up With Roy Masters?

Roy Masters is quite a controversial chap. Loved by some, lambasted by others, Roy has been running his “advice line” radio talk show counselling service since 1961, and has helped thousands gain clarity and insight into their human condition, helped many traumatised souls, including veteran soldiers with PTSD. Being a no-holds-barred kind of guy, with a distinctly religious fervour, Roy gets quite a lot of bad press. What’s up with that? Is he a bad man, or just misunderstood.

Roy Masters, was born Reuben Obermeister in 1928, into a family of Jewish diamond cutters of the famous Hatton Gardens district in London. As he grew up, Reuben was involved in the diamond business for a while, following the established family path before he attended a Vaudeville stage hypnotist event in Brighton which would change the path of his life forever. Amazed at the power of suggestion the hypnotist held, Reuben moved to the United States and became Roy Masters the master hypnotist and spent a number of years practicing hypnosis on his patients.

The story goes that he saw that the majority of the population were already hypnotised in their daily lives, and he wanted to help to de-hypnotise them, to help them to return to a more natural state, a state of grace with God. The insights gained in hypnosis have given Masters an acute awareness of the fallabilities of the human spirit, the roots of addictive behaviour, sickness and suffering (which his hypnosis patients were most likely seeking relief from), and the importance of family and particularly fathers when growing up. Masters has very strong, dividing opinions on these subjects.

From what I can gather, Masters is a spiritual but not religious man, and his opinions tend to appeal with those with formal religious training, and grate on those with none. He quotes the bible frequently, and is steeped in biblical terminology. Roy understands God and love, though his delivery and his approach is uniquely his. He is right when he says “you won’t hear this stuff anywhere else” and that is refreshing.

If you can look past his somewhat brash approach (for a man in his late eighties, Roy Masters is not pulling any punches, he tells it how he sees it), if you can listen without the judgement that Masters himself often employs when dealing with his own audience, you can hear his wisdom, his understanding, and most of the time (when he’s not getting frustrated and calling people “stupid jerks”) his love for humanity, and for God.

I’m am a seeker of the truth, a sensitive soul, touched by life in a way that I have been seeking a return to my connection with spirit for years, and so I relate to Roy Masters, and his message. Years before I could put it in to words, I was looking for a re-connection with the good feelings of my childhood. I therefore enjoy listening to different opinions, especially those who take the path less travelled, those who speak with fervour, and come out with alternative thinking (the majority of the press is saying the same thing, and it is not the truth in any way shape or form). I find Roy Masters’ ideas thought-provoking, but dare I say it, it is a bit too religious (and by that I mean ‘yukky’ feeling at times), the attitude of “I’m right and you’re wrong”, that all religions seems to adopt.

Call it “tough love” if you want, but there is something disturbing about Roy’s delivery which is bordering on bullying. I understand why he has to cut people off, or be tough with them, but he could be more loving. He needs to preserve his opinion over those who disagree with him, and do he comes across as judgemental. It is his unyielding attitude of “I’m right, and you’re wrong”, I’m quite sure, which has led many to ask is Roy Masters as a cult leader? He’s not a cult leader, but what he’s saying is tainted with a negativity which reveals his true nature. There’s something dark in there, something a bit sinister about the man. He speaks of love, and of getting the ego out of the way, and then in the same breath starts pushing against those who dislike his methods and saying “Nobody messes with Roy Masters”. Mmmmmm.

Law of Attraction – the Only thing Worth Knowing

Gaining a continually increasing understanding of the Law of Attraction (about the only thing that is worth studying), and having spent many many hours of my life listening to Esther Hicks’s Teachings of Abraham, I feel well grounded in the notion that You get what you think about.

Think of the human being as a radio-transmitter-receiver, with the ability to think (tune into) whatever vibe it chooses. As the mind focusses, thoughts, words and deeds which match the essence of the vibe of that thought are attracted to the thinking individual.

If you speak of love and appreciation until you feel it resonating throughout your body, your being will resonate with love, more thoughts of love will come, loving people will greet you, and your day will be a good one filled with the good feelings of love. Most people don’t realise that they can deliberately conjure a feeling of love just by focussing on the feeling of love, or by making a decision to focus on things to love and appreciate rather than on things to criticise.

Alternatively, you could choose to feel a sense of paranoia or fear about the world, that something is out to get you, and not only will more paranoid thoughts come to your mind, but you will attract paranoid people, and situations which contribute to your sense of paranoia. You might want to destroy evil, but you can’t. When you push against anything, you associate yourself with it, and you ask for it to come to you. If you learn anything in life, learn this.

How Do You Sort it All Out?

The one overarching factor which makes this world make sense, and something which I have learned from Esther Hicks, is that good feels good, and bad feels bad. Our emotions will guide us if we care about how we feel.

God is Love. We each have the spirit of God inside us, which has an opinion about whatever we are giving our attention to in any moment in time. That opinion is either matched by us, or not, and we can feel the level of agreement or disagreement of our own opinion with the opinion of our inner spirit by the way we feel.

Any time what you are thinking makes you feel bad, then know that your spirit, your in-dwelling God, does not agree with your current perspective. Think you’re a jerk? You will naturally feel bad, but this doesn’t mean you are bad, it just means that your inner being disagrees with your opinion about yourself, because your inner God-self thinks you are wonderful, no matter what you have done. Think Roy Masters is being a jerk? You will feel bad for judging Roy, because your inner spirit loves Roy unconditionally, no matter what he thinks about other people and the extent of their ’sinning’.

Your inner spirit is pure unconditional love, and any time you deviate from that love with thought word or deed, you will feel the dissonance of your two different vibrations. Your inner being understands the Law of Attraction; that you get what you think about, and is focussing on what you want, to help you to bring it about. But your inner being cannot create on your behalf, it can only guide you to focussing in the same way as it is focussed, by encouraging you to think along the same lines as it does, and you know you are on track by the way that you feel.

If you want to know what you really think about something, ask your inner being what it thinks about the subject at hand. If you feel good, when you think those thoughts, then you are right on track. Feel bad however, and you are off track. Listening to Masters espouse what he is calling ’the truth’ and feel bad when accepting his words? Then your inner being disagrees with quite a lot of what he is saying, just like your inner being disagreed when anyone criticised you when you were young. If Roy himself feels bad when giving an opinion (something which could be evidenced by his outbursts of impatience or anger) then Roy’s inner being thinks differently from Roy the human being too, and if Roy was as enlightened as he proclaims to be, he would know that his emotions are guiding him to see that in the specific moment that he condemns a fellow human being for living in sin; for having sex before marriage, or for cooking food and making it ’sullied’, or any of the many old fashioned, puritanical claims to ’right behaviour’ that Masters proposes, that he is the one who is out of line; out of line with his inner spirit’s opinion on the subjects at hand.

Masters’ work is interesting in that it appears to be delivered in most part from a basis of unworthiness, as is the case with much religious claptrap, it comes from a basis of a disconnection from God, from a sense that man is less than God not a part of God. This is old fashioned, outdated, nonsense that God wants you to put behind you. It has also been surpassed by modern day spiritual understanding. Man is the leading edge of what man calls God, he is not less than God, trying to grovel his way back to his glorified state whence he fell. If man wanted to be entirely holy, without ’sin’ he would have stayed in heaven and not come to earth to live a human, physical, emotional, sensual life, and he wouldn’t have the ability and blessing of God to make mistakes, and potentially cut himself off from God’s love (Hell on earth, the only place Hell exists). Or he would come back as a dog.

What’s your Frame of Reference?

Mindset is everything, and as I have explained your vibe is what brings all things to you. If you believe yourself unworthy; a fallen angel, a sinner, prideful, or egotistical (which all essentially mean the same thing), you are looking at the world from a perspective of lack. Lack of your own worthiness, lack of your own sense of goodness, lack of love for yourself and others (when you don’t love yourself you have nothing to give others) and this lack of love for yourself is the only thing you are doing wrong, and the primary reason you feel bad.

From this place of separation with God, from this place of feeling that you are wrong, you might find ways to describe your condition, and your attempts to seek that connection once more through the physical elements of your world, but nothing will restore connection to your indwelling God than connection to your indwelling God; not drugs, alcohol, pot, sex, women, money, cars, houses, fame, success.

What Roy Masters then puts into so many words in his books and on his talk show, particularly regarding sexuality, is a combination of a very old fashioned religious doctrine, combined with an attempt to describe how man (and woman) is looking for love in all the wrong places. It doesn’t necessarily mean that man is a sinner, or that man is a slavering beast. He might be, for example if he was very separated from his loving source energy, and if he believed that sexual activity was only for procreation, in his celibacy, in the denial of his perfectly natural impulses, he might very well be frustrated, and see others’ sexual behaviour as that of wild animals.

But alas, how we see the world says far more about us than it does about those we are judging. In this instance it is far more likely that the judgemental viewer is projecting onto others the offshoot of his own sexual repression. Being unable to relate, and believing that man is entirely this way, he tars all men with the same brush. But of course the world is much bigger than a human perspective can see. To see with God’s eyes you must have communion with God, you must love. And when you see the world through the eyes of love (through the eyes of God which is love), everyone is perfect just as they are, and all is well with the world.

A man who is in alignment with his source is not seeking anything outside of himself to make himself feel whole, and his behaviour is altogether very different to one who feels empty and is trying to fill the void with food, sex, stuff, adrenaline, drugs or alcohol. This is the wild insatiable ‘sexy beast’ that Masters describes, but it is very different from an aligned, loving human being. Once the true source of love is sought and found in the moment, the abuse of food, sex, drugs etc disappears. You were looking for love in all the wrong places. Enlightenment is a momentary state of being, not a benchmark achieved and maintained for evermore. If a human being announces they are an enlightened master, tear up their certificate. Even Jesus had bad days, like the day he was crucified.

Is Woman Evil?

As for the ‘devil woman’ concept. This is bordering on misogyny. One wonders what kind of upbringing Masters himself went through to come to the place where he is counselling abused individuals, and what relationship Masters has had with the women in his life which have led him to project so much hatred onto them. Women give birth to children, nurture them, and frequently condition them to seek their alignment from other individuals, from the external world, rather than seeking their joy inwardly. This is a major disservice to any child, as they are encouraged to follow the guidance of their mother rather than their own inner emotional guidance. But women are not the root of all evil. There is such a thing as a vampirical mother who sucks the spirit life from her children leaving them incapable of making their own way in the world, but these women are only passing on their teaching, their culture to the next generations, and unknowingly so. They are not evil, they are just doing the best they know how. Most of the time it is not very good, but what other choice do they have? Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.

A War against Evil?

Good luck fighting your war against evil. Whatever you give your attention to, you will get more of. How then to deal with such human casualties? There is no other way than to treat the condition with love. You cannot shame someone into returning to that source connection, and finding connection is the only way they will stop looking to others, stuff, food etc. for sustenance.

Teaching people to love must be first and foremost demonstrated by any worthwhile teacher, we must each teach through our own example, and others may choose to ask us what we know, or they may not, but really what anyone else is up to is none of our business.

The ’original sin’ which Masters often speaks of is not some terrible falling from grace, it is simply part and parcel of the human earth experience. Like much of the bible, the story of Adam and Eve is not meant to be taken literally. Adam is man and Eve is woman, the Garden of Eden is heaven, and the Apple represents earthly sensual pleasure, as does Eve. For a human being to live a human experience, there must be badness for him to know his goodness, and there must be choice for him to be able to create what he wants, and choice means the potential to sin (If you want to understand more, I recommend Conversations with God series). We are each free to choose any thoughts that we want to focus upon. No one can think on our behalf. We may choose to give our attention to problems and live them, but that is our choice, and our negative emotion will indicate to us every step along the way that we are heading towards something we don’t want. We can have miserable lives if we choose, and our thoughts and eventual believes will back up our thoughts. In that sense, everyone gets to choose, and energy one is right, even Roy Masters.

Man is made in the image of God, man has indwelling Christ, something which Masters in his human frailty cannot see. He is so convinced that he is right, that he is, like a religious leader drowning in his own dogma, cutting himself off from greater truth and greater awareness which could also be his in the moment. God loves his children yes, all you sinners out there, even Roy Masters. Religion is a tool to control people, it does this through the use of negative emotion. When anyone tries to coerce you, wilfully, to do their bidding instead of your own, know that negative emotion may be one of their tools.

Masters, for all of his talk of love, is pretty mean to his listeners. But coming from broken families where abuse is prevalent, they are used to the experience and seem to tolerate his abusive and judgmental rants. Interestingly, Masters is ’guilty’ of many of the sins he expresses that others are guilty of. He mentions the improper use of the will, and judgemental behaviour, and yet he exhibits it frequently himself. I suppose the policeman and the criminal are not so different, and only separated by a thin blue line.

If you find Roy interesting, intriguing even, my advice would be to take what you like about his teaching, and leave the bits you don’t. Instead seek better feeling thoughts on those subjects, and better feeling teachers. Let your feelings guide you. Not me, Not your parents, and not anyone who claims they’re right and you’re wrong. There is no right and wrong, there are only things which feel better and things that feel worse, and if you’re feeling a little worse than you did before, you’re headed in the wrong direction.

A Blank Slate

Having said all of that, I am fascinated with what Masters has to say about sexuality, and the sexual turn-on being associated with some kind of childhood trauma. It is said that the sexual energy is very similar to the God-force energy, after all the urge to procreate must come from God, if it comes from anywhere. Roy explains that when a child is degraded or subjected to a traumatic event, it associates the event with a disconnection from source, from God. That experience becomes linked to a sexual arousal (a reconnection with God), a sexual awakening in the child. If children then are abused by parents, they can experience fetishes, homosexuality and other turn-ons related to the original traumatic event, and the lingering resentment held by the child toward an adult abuser. I suspect Masters learned all of this while deep in the subconscious minds of his hypnosis patients.

Masters also has great awareness of the male / female gender roles, the importance of a father, and of true love in a family situation and its effect on the children. I’m not sure I’d ever go so far as to call one way right and the other wrong. We must be allowed to choose our lives for ourselves, and neither Masters, nor any other human has a broad enough view to pass judgement on such a subject.

By all means learn how to meditate, but really there is no need for most of the rest of that stuff. You don’t need a tape to learn to meditate, set a timer for 20 minutes, close your eyes in a quiet and comfortable place, and focus on your breathing or something else which takes a little attention to do so, and let any thoughts which come to your mind go. When your mind wanders, bring it back to your breathing. Presto. Meditation.

What this whole thing comes down to is the world would be a much easier place if people minded their own business, including all you parents out there. Your children are born knowing this stuff, until you talk it out of them. Law of Attraction will sort it all out. Focus on what you want, and let it come to you. Mind your own business, and get your sticky beak out of everyone else’s affairs. You don’t get to choose for them, and when you try to take all of that into consideration, it will drive you crazy, because you cannot control them, what they want, or what they are doing.

So thanks for the clarity Roy, a lot of what you say is good and true, I for one appreciate you doing what you do. People don’t like alternative thinkers. They challenge the established worldview and usually end up getting locked up, crucified, or having their heads cut off, or labelled as crazy by those who don’t understand them. God loves you and thanks you for your unique contribution.

Feeling good

Don’t Want……Do Want

When you know what you don’t want, you also know what you do want. It might sound like the most obvious thing you have ever heard in your life, but if you can really hear this statement, you can benefit from its value.

You don’t know what you want until you have experienced its opposite. This is life in a nutshell. In the living of life you are allowed to experience the whole lot of bad and good, and out of it you can decide what you like and what you would prefer to be better.

You needn’t get stuck talking about what you don’t want, but some people do it, spending years talking about what they don’t want, and getting more of the same.

The best time to find the benefit of living something unwanted is in the precise moment that you experience it. e.g

  • Don’t like being poor…….do like having lots of money.
  • Don’t like dealing with people who don’t know what they are doing…..do like working with people who are really clued up and have their eye on the ball and their finger on the pulse.
  • Don’t like living in a busy town surrounded by angry people…..do like living is a harmonious atmosphere surrounded by pleasant people.
  • Don’t like feeling rotten…..to like feeling good.

If you ever feel bad about something, if you feel bad for any reason, it is because you are in that moment looking at something you don’t want. Try to flip it on its head as soon as you can.

Anger, Feeling good

Feeling Angry about Something? It’s OK to Throw a Fit!

If you’re feeling angry about something, the best thing you can do is to try to feel better. Often that means getting angry about it first.

It’s also the last thing you would consider doing if you were trained to bottle up your emotions, especially your anger.

You see, other people don’t like it when we get angry. They would much rather we were depressed or frustrated than acting out how we really feel. Someone could get hurt! But the thing is, getting angry does help us to feel better; to move from a feeling of powerlessness into a feeling where we bolster ourselves and take back our power. The trick is to move through the feelings of anger quickly and onto better feeling emotions before holes appear in doors. Continue reading
