Have you ever wanted to shake the world and say, "wake up!"?
Have you thought, "if I could just show those around me how real spirituality is, they would wake up and we would all be so much happier, more honest with ourselves, and live better lives together!"?
For myself and most clients I know, this is a passion.
But are we directing our energy and efforts to the right places?
This week I was texting with a client. She's a coach and trainer with a background in many fields, and has also graduated Healer's Academy Weeks 1 & 2 with the Modern Mystery School. She became an Adept Initiate with the Mystery School two years ago, and for almost 15 years has made a career of her passion to help people.
She was asking me about a new series of cutting-edge medical devices used for quantum biofeedback, and was excited about the potential of using these devices to "prove" to the masses of humanity that spirituality is "IT" -- that everything we do in the Modern Mystery School -- meditation, energy healing, and spiritual progression are the real deal and the way to go for everyone.
My response was a reminder wake-up call:
We will never prove God-Goddess to people using science. The Mysteries will remain hidden until the end of days of human progression. This doesn't mean the Mystery SCHOOL has to remain hidden; proving that spirituality and our tools are "IT" is potentially a game changer. But know that a lot of opportunities to serve might pass you by while you're trying to prove things to yourself, others, or the world.
Time waits for nobody and God-Goddess is UN-CAUSED, UN-BORN, just AS WE ARE! Without birth and without cause, nonetheless we have LIFE and PURPOSE like nothing else is capable of.
This is quite the Mystery and Paradox. Only the awakening Soul will believe this. Only the uncomfortable personality gives rise to the awakening soul. And the personality is only made uncomfortable by the LIGHT of a higher Initiate shaking it from afar with the vibration of his/her own progression.
Progression in light DESTROYS the matrix of human comfort, and slowly and definitively the initiate begins to destroy their programs, causing glitches in the matrix around them. These uncomfortable glitches are the ONLY THING that AWAKENS the slumbering personalities of humanity around us. More ideas in the mind do NOT wake people up!
So demolish your programs and you will AUTOMATICALLY wake people up, without trying...everything else is just fluff!
I'll emphasize this again: we don't wake up because science proved anything. Science has basically proven quantum theory "six ways to Saturday" and demonstrated it in experiments for 100 years now. This is not waking people up, despite movies like "What the Bleep do we Know?"
If we look at the physical world and see symptoms as causes, we become confused.
We call this the "Great Work".
The Matrix movies are the perfect metaphor for awakening through Initiation. As energy moves through human collective consciousness, "The Matrix", millions of times per minute, it has a unique encounter with the minds of higher initiates who have undergone serious self-work for many years. That energy circulating in the collective cannot "hook in" to the "normal" programs of humanity and repeat them through the Initiate.
The Matrix around that initiate breaks down the habitual thinking that keeps humans stuck in their problems and fears, thereby liberating the energy from it's old patterns.
This causes "glitches in the matrix" of the collective, CHANGING what is possible for others around them, and after enough energy is liberated from programmed forms, others around that Initiate can no longer slumber, because the Matrix has become uncomfortable.
This work is arduous, but produces the needed results for shaking humanity free from the patterns we are currently using to destroy our world. If your matrix is already shaking, welcome home to a place of support for your long journey.
Are you driven by a desire to succeed?
Do you wish you were?
Have you had dreams and visions of what you could be doing, but you're not sure how that's going to manifest?
Let's look below the surface.
We live in a time of quickening, speeding up, and great awakening. Never before have so many people had the opportunity to make big impacts in the world, and never before have we actually been so close to literally destroying the world and making it completely ecologically and economically un-livable for the majority of human beings.
So what is success?
What is YOUR success?
We are moving into a time when you can create that for yourself. You can create an impact just by tapping into your authentic truth and revealing your story to add a special kind of value to society and the world, to speak the truth of your life and in sharing that, and listening to others doing the same, begin to re-evaluate the world as it really IS!
This is huge.
We get to watch more and more people on social media and around us in life bringing forward their bits of life experience, and we have the chance to look at life from many different angles at once. Now maybe you don't do this...maybe you are only looking through one filter, one lens at life. But out there are a dizzying variety of stories and ideas, all for you to be able to learn from, to sort through and find the truth in each one.
So what is success? Who is defining success?
Who is determined enough to succeed at what they desire? Where do those desires come from, what are their destinations and final outcomes? What do you notice as the fruits, the results of the lives you see lived around you? How about your own life?
Everyone wants something from life, even if we deny it. We came here into this life with a purpose and goals. We set forth things we wished to accomplish in this physical life. What you think you want determines the actions you take. So where does that desire come from? Usually it's something you feel you don't have. Something you feel you'd be happier if you DID have. How determined are you to make that change happen to attain your desire, to "succeed"? And if you do succeed, is your success what your deeper self really wanted?
Through meditation, If you follow your desires to their source, you will discover they are empty (and this takes a lot of meditation). You will also see a common thread: all desires are for love, for increasing love. The starting point of this expansion of love is the Self. Through meditation, worldly goals slowly become redefined by their service to a greater mission of bringing love, which leads to profound peace. This kind of peace spreads to others and is automatically shared, through an invisible field of consciousness, impacting the world and making it a better place to live for everyone.
Working towards peace through meditation is a long, slow, and important road to self-realization.
There are much faster ways that don't require you to be living away from society and immersed in your inner world for hours and hours per day in meditation. Meditation is still important, but the path of Initiation in the ancient Mysteries gives a more worldly and integrated approach perhaps more suited to the modern mindset and desires.
Some might consider Initiation a "life hack" for success, but it is so much more.
Using tools of power and metaphysical energy, the path of Initiation opens a set of doors inside the initiate to work with their inner forces in a much more conscious way, quickening their unfolding and bringing their life lessons to fruition much much faster and more smoothly than could've occurred before. Through the spiritual processes of initiation, the awareness of the initiate moves definitely and steadily towards an expansion until, by the end stages of the path of initiation, he/she is anchored and established in the infinite and eternal nature of their own being. This kind of power is cultivated alongside the great responsibility to do service with that awareness. The greatest service, of course, is to be able to share that same awareness with others, leading once again to profound peace.
The determination required is enormous; many fail along the path of initiation because their desires are not clear to them, or they are not clear about how to bring those desires into the world. Having success means expanding love through service, and service means reminding others of their eternal nature. This service itself is actually relatively easy using the tools of initiation. But the determination comes in when we try to bring this to the human part of ourselves.
Bringing awareness to the ego causes a reaction! We must be determined to master this reaction and reshape our lives so that we grow. There is an entire path within the Modern Mystery School tradition called the Ritual Master path, the path of the Spiritual Warrior. It is the path of mastering the reactions of the negative ego, and getting out of your own way so you can REALLY succeed in life.
What is the reward of this? As with meditation, the reward is love, in a higher form which creates peace.
Depends what you do with it. I believe love is the most powerful force we can wield. Tell me you don't seek love, and that's ok, but somewhere inside, we all do.
Something inside each human being, somewhere along the way in this world, has experienced a lack of love. This hurts.
Living from love, determined to succeed in expanding it, in my self, my relationships, and in the world, I know where my real power is. I can make decisions which will improve the world, and the lives of everyone I meet and touch. This is my definition of success.
