WISDOM! Is that Enlightenment?

WISDOM! Is that Enlightenment?
Quote: "Wisdom knows this. Wisdom is not thinking about how to manipulate affairs so that events work out in its favour. Wisdom performs none of this. Wisdom just knows that we are being manipulated. To stay connected to wisdom through awareness, we need simply to stay in the moment. This involves doing NOTHING. This involves NO PRAYERS, NO MEDITATION, NO MANTRAS, NO RITUALS, NO JOINING,… NO THING. All practices, be they MEDITATIVE or PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES, are exercises in remaining OUT OF THE ONE ETERNAL MOMENT. This is not to say that meditating is bad or wrong, just as physical activity is not bad or wrong. There is no such thing as good or bad, or right or wrong. However, these exercises avail no benefit in reconnecting to the wisdom state. Only emotional detachment, which is to place NO REAL WORTH or REAL VALUE in anything 3 dimensional, is true reconnection to reality. There is no such thing as TIME and SPACE, and to enter into activities where you confess, and admit, disconnection from wisdom, simply by entering into that activity whereby you hope to reconnect to wisdom, (or as some call it, ENLIGHTENMENT), then you have not RECONNECTED WITH your original WISDOM STATE." (Enlightenment is a luciferian term that sounds and seems to speak of reconnection to wisdom, however wisdom and enlightenment have nothing in common). - IM Nuff Said!

Peace and Love for ONE!


It has been 9 months since doing a post on this blog. It's time to share here once again. On this site, I have usually tried to present and express helpful Human Healing Information, Knowledge, Wisdom and Exposing the Elites. Now it's time for AWAKING & CHANGE through what humans refer to as LOVE.

Go in peace my brothers and sisters, and remember we are not we, we are "ONE".
- Love from Jedi
The Quest for Personal Freedom
"The quest of a Spiritual Warrior is for Personal Freedom. Personal Freedom means freedom from fear, illusions, and the fear based beliefs in the mind. In essence it means to win the war over the beliefs in the mind. It is with Personal Freedom that we are free of the human condition of emotional suffering. Spiritual traditions around the world have their own names for this state of awareness including nirvana and heaven. It is a state that is simply described as living your life with unconditional love, gratitude, and respect, for your self, and for others."
The Challenge of a Spiritual Warrior
"Don Miguel refers to some of these challenges throughout the book. However, in the excitement of the Truth in what don Miguel writes, people often overlook where he points out that this endeavor is not easy. The agreements may be simple, but he never says they are easy to keep.
At the same time living the Four Agreements has taken me on the most rewarding and profound journey of happiness and fulfillment beyond anything I could have imagined. The hard work in the beginning is rewarded to me in every interaction every day of my life. This is a very big return for a small investment of time and effort.
Don Miguel refers to people who decide to adopt the Four Agreements and create love and happiness in their life as Spiritual Warriors. It is Spiritual because it is about living your Life. It is also referred to as a war because you are challenging the old fear based beliefs in your mind. It will take more than a week and a half to break free of fear, the tyranny of the inner judge, and old emotional habits. There will be some battles lost along the way, but that is of minor concern in the longer term strategy of creating happiness in your life."






Living the Four Agreements: A life changing Journey

"In the best selling book The Four Agreements don Miguel Ruiz gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Adopting and committing to these agreements is simple. Actually living and keeping these Four Agreements can  be one of the hardest things  you will ever do. It can also be one of the most life changing things you will ever do.
As you practice living these four practices your life will dramatically change. In the beginning these new habits will be challenging and you will lapse countless times. With practice these agreements become integrated into your being and every area of your life and become easy habits to keep.
The Four Agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
Understanding how to Integrate and Live the practices
Upon reading don Miguel’s wisdom many people have their eyes opened to a new possibility for living life. They get excited when they see the potential for happiness, love, and respect with themselves and their relationships. What they fail to see is the challenges and resistance the mind will have to living just one of the agreements. Don Miguel briefly mentions these challenges in his book, but people fixate on the four chapters with the agreements and seem to miss these other important points. This is often the set up for expectations that lead to disappointment and frustration.
Domestication
During our early life we began making agreements. Our parents rewarded us when we did what they wanted and they punished us when we didn’t. We also learned behaviors and habits in school, church, and from other adults and children on the playground. The tools of reward and punishment were often emotional and sometimes physical. The impact of other people’s opinions and reactions to us became a very strong force in the habits we created. In this process we created agreements in our mind of who we should be, what we shouldn’t be, who we were, and who we were not. Over time we learned to live our life based on the agreements in our own mind. We learned to live according to the agreements that came from the opinion of others. In this process of domestication it turns out that the choices we make and the life we live is more driven by the opinions we learned from others than one we would choose on our own.
Why Living the Four Agreements Is Such a Challenge
We have out of years of habit not paid attention to how we express our self. The responses that come out of our mouth are often automatic. They were learned from years of habit living by the agreements we learned. We do not consciously choose our words, or the emotion, tone, and attitude that we express.
Over years our mind has filled with beliefs that generate incessant thinking. In all that thinking we have many assumptions that we are not aware of. We even make the assumption that what we think is true. We imagine and assume what others think of us and how they will react. We also assume that the judgments and self criticisms we have are true. We have learned to make so many assumptions that we aren’t aware of. These assumptions are not the truth. These assumptions and the faith we express in them is just one way that we are not impeccable with our word.
Through our domestication we have also learned to take things personally. We assume that when someone has an opinion about us that their opinion is valid.  Their opinion becomes our belief about our self.   We end up having an emotional reaction to our own belief because  we assumed their opinion it is true.   We can also take personally our own opinions. We take personally our own self judgments. These self judgments are nothing more than an assumption. Over years the mind has developed many habits of making assumptions and taking them personally.
Just because you adopt the Four Agreements doesn’t mean that all these habits in the mind will stop with that commitment.
When you decide to change your life and adopt the Four Agreements you are challenging the beliefs you learned and the habits you practiced since your childhood domestication.
Adopting the Four Agreements creates a conflict in the mind between expressing your self Impeccably with love and your existing fear based beliefs.
Avoiding Double Jeopardy
One of the hidden assumptions that people often make when adopting the Four Agreements is about time. Without awareness the mind makes the assumption that they shouldimmediately be able to keep the Four Agreements 100% of the time. The mind completely ignores that there are already existing agreements and habits of taking things personally that have been in place for years.
With the expectation of the new agreement that we will not break any of the Four Agreements we are set up for failure. We have an emotional reaction and take something personally which feels bad. (but is completely normal part of our old habits) But then the inner judge reprimands us for failing to not take something personally. Now we feel twice as bad. The inner judge tells us that we failed and the voice of the victim in the mind accepts this proposal.
The result is that we are not only upset, but we also feel like a failure. If you just look at your emotional state at this point it will seem like things are getting worse instead of better. It can seem like attempting to keep the Four Agreements is causing more problems and making you feel worse.
If you are aware that you are judging your self for taking something personally, you can feel even worse.  Your inner judge might use that awareness to judge and reject your self for judging your self for taking something personally. In the beginning the myriad of voices in your head are likely to use your new found awareness as material for self judgment.  This is when the fourth agreement, Always Do Your Best, is most important.  It gives you immunity from self judgment.  Your best isn’t perfect practice of these agreements on day one.  Your best will include a lot of stumbling in the beginning and  improve over time as you practice.  Just like walking, learning a language, or playing a sport, you can’t play at top level on your first day learning.
Awakening

In actuality the problem is not that you adopted the Four Agreements. Nor is the problem that you are a failure. What is really happening is that you are having an awakening. You are waking up to how your mind makes assumptions, has emotional reactions, and is so quick to make self judgments. These realizations about the belief system in your mind are not usually pleasant but are part of an awakening. It is usually uncomfortable realization, but through it your awareness is growing.
With some more awareness and practice you can move beyond this uncomfortable awakening about the mind. You will come to see that it is not You that is judging your self for failing. It is the inner judge. With practice you will see the ridiculous expectations and assumptions for what they are and not feel like a failure when you lapse in your journey to impeccability. This comes as you gain more awareness and gain more personal power over your agreements."

These four commitments ring true to me - a worthy objective. And what you say about the practical aspects of adopting such commitments also rings true from my own experience. I have been working on changing my programming for some 30 years or so now, and in recent years I have made this my top priority in life. From my experiences, it is a seemingly never-ending process, with continual ups and downs along the way, and - as you suggest - it is very important not to be too hard on yourself. Nobody on this planet is perfect, and we should not expect to become so ourselves. As per number 4, simply do your best, and whenever you slip up, just accept that and move on with the process. For me the important thing is to see overall progress - and for me that has been very definite. When you go, over time, from being depressive and utterly lacking in self-confidence to being innately happy and self-respecting, then you know you are making real spiritual progress. It takes a lot of persistence to break the programming of early childhood, but it can definitely be done, and it is a very rewarding pastime indeed. Thank you DS for spreading your light.

Hey Ian
Truly, a great post! I am familiar with the Path you speak of. The teachings of Don Migul was a very important tool for me. It has been quite a while since I last read his works and I intend to look up that grand old book here in my library and reread it! I thank you for the reminder of this Path. I intend to point my readers to this blog because it says things a lot better than I can. Keep up the great work you do and may all of us soon remember that we are indeed ONE!

Namaste brother Ian; this is an excellent post, thank you. I remember the first time I read Ruiz's beautiful work of inspiration I cried like a baby. His words, so beautiful, simple and inspiring struck me straight in the heart. It seemed that his collection of thought were perfect, each one responating more than the previous until I found myself totally immersed in love. I value don Miguel greatly, his knowledge is truly an inspiration to all. Your analysis and commentary adjunct to the words are astute and very compelling. We have taken much the same path brother, which is probably why we see each other in the words we write.In Lak' ech Brother Ian, prosper with love... live with love...

Hello Ian,

Thank you Brother for your visit and the fine words you have shared here for thought and consideration for the readers. It's from your personal experience which makes it so valuable. You haven't know me long. You have not yet seen the/my full expressions of what and who we are. I commend you on your inner strength in searching for a better way. As you get more involved in reading many of the post here and at The Darkstar, you will begin to understand things even deeper than you can imagine. I know that my discoveries TOTALLY CHANGED everything for me in such a profound way, it's hard to describe in a few words or even paragraphs. When I make comments, at times, they can seem to be head-strong or even forceful. But the intent is expose the truth, as hard as it may be to accept. I know... I struggled with it for years. All I ask is to consider what is said and be cynical...question EVERYTHING! I will never be hurt or offended with comments from anyone who visits.

Know that my wording (based on research for many years) has changed. Since thought and words, communications, symbols, numbers, pictures, etc all carry subliminal messages, I no longer use them.

I'll give you an example. In your comment you said "Thank you DS for spreading your light." You should know this to understand the writting, but I don't spread light....

"The Thought Process, which is hypnotic suggestion, is the luciferian agenda. The term “lucifer” simply means “light bringer, or light bearer”, and the “light” is the “lie” that has conjured up what humanity is entranced to believe is real. Humanity itself, is the most deceptive conjured up aspect of the Mind of the Thought Process, and humanity is itself, the thick veil of deceit which is designed to separate Illusion from Truth. This separation cannot possibly succeed as pertaining to Who and What we really are (which will become apparent as you the reader progresses through this material), … however, the misery it produces seems real and valid until each individual, … illusory, … human life experience, comes to the realization that everything is a lie and without validity, … which does include each illusory human being on the face of the earth.

Note, we are light energy. Energy cannot be destroyed in this 3 dimensional realm, but it can change its form. ENERGY IS THOUGHT. The luciferian illuminati puppet families understand this concept. They know if we fully grasp this concept their hold on humanity is over. The powerful elite of the world act upon the thoughts of the THINKING EGREGORE and plot and scheme and establish our reality for us. They lie, cheat, steal, extort, kill, rape, plunder … to control a massive amount of energy, or thought patterns, and transform then into the riches and pleasures we see them acquire. They live totally out of the moment. Living outside the moment is the source of the luciferian mindsets power. This power is, quite literally, the electrical energy they use to grow rich and manipulate humanity. This is the religious ark/arc of the covenant entered into with the LIGHT BRINGING GOD.

The illuminati families perch high on the power ladder, but they’re not on the top rung. Ruling over them is a sinister group of luciferian kabbalistic manipulators with a cruel egregore group mindset. Throughout the ages this luciferian cabal has masqueraded as an angel of light. An angel of light is exactly what it is, however, this ruling egregore is equally the prince of darkness.

(Enlightenment is a luciferian term that sounds and seems to speak of reconnection to wisdom, however wisdom and enlightenment have nothing in common)."

I will never use the terms, in Light, Enlightenment, Soul, Spirit, etc. We have no SOUL or Spirit. And our light being 3D bodies are holograms of light to keep us from seeing the truth. For we are WISDOM, we are ONE and come from NO-WHERE & NO-THING! This fake 3D universe is created by THOTH or Thought to keep us in hypnosis with a veil to deceive us from seeing who we really are...already Perfect Beings.

Please ask me anything, and you will get the best response I can give to help understand our experiences.

Peace my brother,

Ian

Ian, thanks for your feedback, and for explaining a bit of your philosophy. However, some aspects of it do not resonate with me. I use the word "light" in its subtle sense (as seen by the third eye, and as experienced when in trance) , not its physical sense (as seen by the physical eyes). By "light" I really mean spiritual strength - the innate strength of divine being, which is connected with virtue. This meaning of light goes back into the mists of time and the origins of language.

My experiences also indicate that love is the primary quality of divinity. There is a powerful innate virtue and strength that comes with that love. But wisdom is not very relevant at all, only having a place in the worlds of illusion that we create. Granted, the divine being has the innate wisdom that produces intuition - a divine understanding of everything and nothing, of baance and virtue.

I am not saying that I have nothing to learn from you, but it has to accord with my direct experience, or else I will reject it, as I currently reject your claims re light, souls, etc. Experience is the best teacher. Our differences may well be only in semantics - the meanings of English words have been badly debased over the centuries, and we can either reject these words (as you are doing) or redefine and reuse them (as I do). There are no absolute meanings for words - the best we can do is to be consistent. To truly communicate we have to use telepathy.

But even if our understandings are in fact opposed, then that still fits into my understanding that each of us creates our own cosmos of experience, and that accordingly, what is accurate and valid in my experience may be completely invalid and wrong in your experience, without denying the validity of our respective experiences.

So, from my perspective, there is no need for us to reach full agreement. We can accept our differences and remain open to learning from each other, and interested in each others perspectives.
