Your Knowledge is Killing You, and You Don’t Know It

By Cathy Eck   To Fall or Not to Fall; That is the Question Even if you are very non-religious, as I am, you have to realize that we live in a culture and marinate in a soup of beliefs that stem from the story of Adam and Eve.  That single story created a belief […]

Thirteen Signs You’re Freedom Bound (And You Ain’t Turning Back)

By Cathy Eck   Freedom Versus Enlightenment One of my most popular posts is the Ten Signs of Spiritual Awakening.  Many people resonate with that post.  It actually represents the signs that we experience when we’ve found or are finding the enlightened point of view.  Enlightenment means that we see through the illusion.  Normal suddenly […]

Occult Versus Initiation: A Brief History of the Mind

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. But then the occultists invented a new story and a new way of creating. They left us dazzled and confused while they got all the money and toys for themselves.

Sons of God, The Effects of Initiation

  The Sons of God The most popular record of the Sons of God who mated with the daughters of men is found in the Old Testament of the Bible.  Few people realize that this theme is ancient and is found in mythology and legends all over the world. An older account can be found […]

The Legend (Parts I and II)

Cathy Eck This post is in response to a request that I got to post the ending to “The Legend.”  I know I have it posted somewhere on this blog, but I can’t remember where it is.  So here it is again (at the end of this post).  While I was at it, I thought […]

Proof, Initiation, and the movie, “Life of Pi”

By Cathy Eck   The Initiation Story The movie, “Life of Pi,”  is a perfectly crafted initiation story.  As a young child, Pi grows up in a zoo.  One day, he pays a visit to the Bengal tiger’s cage.  He reaches into the cage and holds out a piece of raw meat.  The tiger approaches […]

Ten Signs That Your True Self is Telling You to Let Go

By Cathy Eck This article is meant for you to determine if you might be ready for something which was once called initiation.  Initiation is not the same as walking a spiritual path, improving our mind, releasing our emotions, enlightenment, or ascension.  So read carefully; you might discover that you thought you wanted spiritual awakening or […]

Giant Human Butterfly Symbolism

By Cathy Eck Butterfly Symbolism On August 7th of 2009, a gigantic crop circle appeared in the Netherlands near a small town called Goes. The crop circle was 530 meters by 450 meters.  The symmetry and perfection of the butterfly was amazing, as if to say, “Let the hoaxers try to claim this one.”  The […]

Tree of Life or Tree of Good and Evil?

By Cathy Eck   What Do I Value Most In Life? Ask yourself, “What do I value most in my life?”  You might get an answer right away, or your mind might go blank.  You might get superficial answers like your car, sex, or pizza.  You might think you value a particular person most of […]

The Huna Golden Rule: You Can Only Harm Yourself

By Cathy Eck   The Huna Golden Rule The ancient Hawaiian Hunas had a powerful version of the Golden Rule:  “What you think you do to others, you actually do to yourself.”   It is a powerful way of thinking.  In fact, when we follow this Golden Rule, we start to see a whole new reality.  […]

  • 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.
