Arrangiarsi (or How to Fall from Creators to Mafia Dons)

Mastery I always buy a full-festival pass to the AMDOCS film festival in Palm Springs. I go with the expectation that I’ll take what I get. Once I check in, I sit down with the schedule and make my selections. I schedule tight with only a dinner break. Films start mid-morning and go until late […]

Love, Sex, and Fifty Shades of Confusion

By Cathy Eck   Sexual Confusion I get a lot of requests to write about sex, and I have here and there.  But readers keep requesting more because it’s a very confusing and loaded topic.  Some spiritual teachers are high on love and down on sex.  Others are high on sex and claim it’s essential to love.  We all […]

A lot […]

Getting Beyond Painful Memories

By Cathy Eck   Painful Memories Color Our Future Painful memories are very important to let go because when we hold on to the beliefs and emotions connected with a painful memory, our future is colored by our past.  And yet, most people avoid the painful memory, feeling like there is no use in dredging […]

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

Is the End of War Possible?

Are Humans Prone to War? Recently, Discover Magazine (6/2012) explored the theory of E.O. Wilson, who believes that humans will never see the end of war because it is embedded in our human psyche.  Wilson said that humans are prone to war.  The article quoted William James from his 1906 antiwar essay. “History is a […]

When Friends and Family Are Obstacles to Our Freedom

The most important choice we make in life is whether we live our authentic life or the life that others want us to live.   Our Innate Desire to Live an Authentic Life Deep inside, we are all most joyful when we are living our authentic life.  We want to feel free and fulfill our […]

Becoming Authentic: The Fallacy of the Unique Personality

Why Personalities Are Not Unique In 1948, psychologist Bertram Forer gave his introductory psychology students a questionnaire and told them that they would each receive a unique personality analysis based on their answers.  But unbeknownst to his students, Bertram was conducting an experiment.  Instead of each student getting a unique analysis, each student got the […]

The Seventh Sense, Humor

By Cathy Eck   The Senses We all know about the five physical senses.  Clearly, if someone loses his or her sense of sight, hearing, or even taste, his or her life experience is deeply compromised.  Likewise, those with sharper senses often have a heightened life experience.  Life is often much easier for such people.

  • 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.
