The Illusion of the Fight or Flight Response and Stress

By Cathy Eck   Fight or Flight Response Science tells us that the fight or flight response is real.  They say it’s a normal reaction to all the scary things out there…things that we can’t protect ourselves from.  We label the fight or flight condition stress. Medicine admits that most diseases are the result of […]

Eliminating Competition and Comparison From Our Lives

By Cathy Eck   Competition and Comparison Competition is insanely normal in our life.  Or perhaps, I should say insane and normal.  We compete for jobs.  Teams compete in all kinds of sports.  Wanna be artists compete on reality television shows for record deals, modeling jobs, and the right to have their clothing lines in […]

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 […]

Improvisational Comedy, a Different View of Projection

By Cathy Eck    Improvisational Comedy This is my 100th post on Gateway To Gold….Wahoo!  I decided that this post should be an all encompassing post.  I wanted to write about something that I love and enjoy; and as always, I wanted to use that experience to poke at some old topics in a different way and […]

Turn Off those Channels…And Listen to Your SELF

By Cathy Eck   Other Worldly Channels I bet you thought I was going to write about turning off your TV.  Hell no!  People put their creative ideas on television; and you  and I have complete freedom to watch them or turn them off.  I am an awful follower, but I’m a wonderfully appreciative audience member. […]

Three Questions To Help You Cut Through the Illusion

By Cathy Eck   A lot of spiritual teachers tell people to ask “Who Am I?” over and over again until they know the answer.  It’s an interesting question, but I’m not sure that the answers that people seem to get are helpful.  Some seem to decide that they are something beyond the physical and […]

Eliminating Our Master and Slave Mindset

By Cathy Eck   We’ve All Got a Master and Slave Mindset about Something I recently watched a television program called “Slave Catchers, Slave Masters” on the history channel.  The show was about how slaves managed to escape in America.  It was all about the physical act of escaping.  And yet, as I watched the […]

Living Entirely From the Mental Perspective

By Cathy Eck   The Gateway This is probably the most important post that I’ve written.  However, it might not make complete sense at first if you’ve not been reading my blogs for a long time.  Remember blogs are displayed backwards, and so the more basic concepts are in older posts.  I’ve tried to provide […]

Cause and Effect Versus Reasoning

By Cathy Eck   As we practice letting go of the true mental cause of every problem in our life, our confusion slowly disappears.  Things do start to make sense. Then we realize that we’re not encountering so many problems anymore.  There is no bolt of lightning or angels in the sky moment.  It’s a […]

  • 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.
