Is ‘ABE’ a Metaphor for our Ego?

Is ‘ABE’ a Metaphor for our Ego?

I found this comment on the following video and thought it was brilliant and insightful. If he knew how to fix himself he’d already be coping. All he knows is this selfish love, so he’s trying to work with what he knows. Unfortunately, most people function in this way. Instead of trying to understand their own condition they try to change the conditions of others to match their own. People forget the dynamic, and just […] Read more »

“What” is Wisdom?

The Trivium & the Unity Process

Wisdom is the ability to utilize both your knowledge and understanding in your actions. Knowledge answers “what” questions, understanding answers “why” questions, and wisdom is the synthesis of your “what” and “why” into your “how” questions/answers. If you jump into your “how” without first acquiring enough knowledge and understanding, you are not making a wise choice. ~Nathan & Aline Read more »

Enlightened or Asleep?

nathan-aline

An awakened being still has feelings, including anger, sadness, and fear, only a self-deluded ego will pretend to have transcended their feelings to prove their supposed enlightened spiritual status. The biggest difference between an awake and an asleep individual is that the awake person is conscious and aware of their feelings, and has the capacity to understand why they are feeling them in the first place, while the sleeping are too busy suppressing theirs, blaming […] Read more »

A New Paradigm of Compassion

osho-compassion-awareness

Many lightworkers are still looking at compassionate action as something that is done externally, and not an internal alchemical process of transmuting their personal feelings, patterns, actions, and ideas into something new; they believe that they can act our world into a better place without profoundly changing who they are within. “The only hope for humankind is in the transformation of the individual.” ~Krishnamurti There are two separate patterns and paradigms of relating to the […] Read more »

How to Forgive

When we wrote this, we had no idea that July 7th was international forgiveness day, we just love how the Universe works in concert like this!  xo <3  ~Nathan & Aline As we’ve stated before, we have found that understanding is the catalyst of forgiveness, and that forgiveness comes quite naturally after a person understands “why” any given bad thing may have happened to them.  “Why” is the pattern in their life in the first place?  “Why” are […] Read more »

It’s Easier to Fool People…

easier-to-fool

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.” ~Mark Twain Those without understanding are easy to fool.   Discernment is sorely lacking, especially these days…to discern, the heart must be active, and to do that, it is important to ask “why” every time you lack understanding… understanding upgrades your discernment, which makes you harder to fool. ~Nathan Read more »

Ask And You Shall Receive

Why?

Geometry is the study of the relationship of one object to another, it is the math of relationship; and EVERYTHING is relationship. When we speak of the feminine and masculine, we are not talking about gender differences or societal stereotypes, we are speaking of a geometric relationship between the “being state” and the “doing state”, Creator and Creation, that is inherent within all manifested and unmanifested life. There is a masculine (child) and a feminine […] Read more »

Understanding Promotes Change

Learning a technique cannot change who you are, it can only show you, and help you manage, who you are; true change only comes from deeply understanding why you are who you are.  So if you really want to use a technique to grow, only use those that promote understanding yourself. ~Nathan & Aline

Paradigm Changing

Why?

Asking questions is the most dangerous thing that a person can do to threaten the current societal paradigm…this is why they try to imprint their own questions onto us through social conditioning; schools, media, political, and religious means. You don’t need to be an activist, you don’t need to change their minds, you don’t even need to stop their actions, you just need to keep asking as many questions as you can, and keep seeking […] Read more »

Understanding and the Speed of Thought

Vektor - Blume des Lebens - Herz Lotus - Chakra

Have you noticed that there is a type of “understanding” disseminated in many circles, where awareness/consciousness has been divorced from the feminine principle of understanding? They believe that to seek to understand something is thinking, which they label as the ego, and that all thoughts are ego; and that to seek is also a childish game of the ego. But what if all thoughts are not ego, but instead, only the unconscious thoughts are? And […] Read more »

Embrace Your Shadow Side

nathan-aline

This is really important to understand, especially in Tantra, as many people use Tantra as a spiritualized excuse to jump into selfish gratification, rather than an opportunity to understand their sexual motivations, to then transform them into something more powerful. * * * * * When we say “embrace your shadow side”, we are not encouraging you to indulge yourself with an orgy of selfish gratification, but rather we are encouraging a compassionate and intimate […] Read more »

Is Sharing the Burden Really Compassionate?

Love and blood - vampire woman biting her lover

Is sharing the burden, or enabling somebody’s aversion to their own pain and suffering, really compassionate or supportive?  You are not obligated to share your energy and manifestations with anybody else, there is no reason to allow parasites and vampires to feed off of you in the name of fairness, or doing your fair share.  Nobody is entitled to your sovereign wares, just as you’re not entitled to theirs; compassion and support begins after this […] Read more »

Disinformation vs. Misinformation

Bouton lecture

We cannot stress enough the need for heart discernment in today’s digital world, where information spreads like wildfire, heart discernment is our only tool to avoid becoming sheep in the giant flock of humanity. What is true? What is false? What is almost true, but with a slant for purposeful manipulation? Even 1% lie, when the intent is to control the truth, cannot be trusted. When exercised enough, your heart discernment is the tool needed […] Read more »

Judgment vs. Discernment

ann-h-kim

Q: What is the difference between Judgment and discernment? A:  I think that with judgment, there is a resistance to seeing the whole picture. It’s a reaction from a limited point of view… Discernment is open to more points of view, and is a response from having received all available data… The same line or boundary can be drawn, but discernment is responsive whereas judgement is reactive… When something is taken just at face value, […] Read more »

Do All Paths Lead to God?

Road on the sky

I’m sure you’ve heard the politically correct saying “all paths lead to God”, but do they really? Does a parasitical path of leaching, sucking, and draining others really lead to God and unity consciousness? Asking “why” to understand yourself out of your parasitic tendencies, while you are still stuck within the system, is the path towards reconnecting with God, but spiritualizing away the guilt and shame to continue in parasitical behavior isn’t pure, it’s taking […] Read more »
