Twelve Tricks for Making It Through the Holidays

By Cathy Eck   Since holiday time is here, most people spend time with family and friends.  If you don’t celebrate holidays then you’ll be going to see “Big Eyes” and “Unbroken” at the theater with all the Jews like me. But if you’re obligated to do family visits, it’s likely they’ll bring up lots of […]

Eliminating our Rulebook: The Good Persona and the Positive Persona

By Cathy Eck   The return trip to our True Self is crazy.  We move forward toward freedom; and then, we hit blockages, caused by the false self, that usually feel like we’ve gone backwards.  That’s normal.  We’re meeting every belief that we accepted as true in the past.  Stopping to clean the blockages can […]

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 […]

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 […]

Is the False Self the Same as Ego?

By Cathy Eck   False Self or Ego? People often ask me if the false self is the same as the ego.  Why don’t I use that very popular word?  Let me tell you why.  It all comes down to the fact that people are far too quick to believe what someone says, especially if […]

Insights From a Wise Teenager

By Cathy Eck and a Very Wise Teenager   We’ve all felt like a lone tree at times.  Often when we do, the fact that we’re not part of the forest causes us to think that something is wrong.  We can’t see that standing on the outside of the illusion looking in allows us to […]

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.

  • 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.
