The difference between initiation and the occult is how emotions are used. Emotions were once our navigation system; they kept us safe and on our path.

God Versus Google: Is Google the New and Improved False God?

God Versus Google  Since my first blog post, I’ve had occasional articles that were viewed by many and other articles that no one saw.  I’m definitely not a page rank queen.  I love to write and am passionate about my topics.  I hate choosing a word or title just so that Google will find my […]

The Long Journey from Should to Could

Should I, Could I? I remember the very first time that I realized the difference between should and could was far more than a couple of letters.  I was newly married and still in college.  It was time for me to choose my major. I was good at math and enjoyed it, so I listed […]

The Ancient Secret To Remaining A Mental Virgin

  • Beliefs! The Lies that Blind You!

    The word belief has the word "lie" within it, hinting at its purpose.

    The word belief has the word lie within it because every belief is a lie. We lose ourselves when we confuse beliefs with the truth.

    As we let go of beliefs, we change our minds. As we change our minds, we change our relationships. As we change our relationships, we change our world.

    The most loving thing we can do is to drop our beliefs and judgments about others and set them free. When we free others, we also free ourselves.

    Positive thinking is not something that you need to do; your true, authentic Self IS positive. Find your Self and you will never have a negative thought again.

    Used properly, your emotions can lead you down the shortest path to your authentic Self. Denying or suppressing them is a ticket to hell.

    No matter how ornate your mask, your true Self is much more beautiful. Be Your Self!

    Many will attempt to fill you with their truth; but real and lasting transformation is about letting go of your beliefs and unveiling your OWN truth.

    Esoteric means hidden. Esoteric wisdom means hidden wisdom. Esoteric healing means to heal by finding the hidden cause.

    The ancient wisdom keepers lived their lives based on the law of cause and effect. They never fixed a problem because a problem is an effect of a mental cause. Today, we call the mental causes beliefs.

    In modern times we've become so good at projecting and suppressing our beliefs that we hide the causal beliefs even from ourselves.

    We often confuse our beliefs or opinions with the truth. This causes our problems to become chronic or permanent.

    If our mind believes something is true, it won't let it go. We first have to discriminate between true and false (beliefs). Then we can let the beliefs go. What remains is the truth.
