Victim consciousness

Perhaps many don’t really think and identify themselves as being a victim in their lives, but let’s make one thing very clear. We live in a world of victim consciousness because collectively that is what humanity believes to be real. So yes, there are individual differences, but we still face this creation of victim consciousness together.

What does it mean to live from victim consciousness? It is a perspective that thinks that the little self is the center of focus, but feelings, experiences and thoughts are influenced and can be directed by others. Things happen to the victim randomly and one can only shy away or attack in order to preserve the self from the outside threat. Life is coming at victim and he/she is at its mercy.

The truth is that I am the center of my own universe, just like you are yours, but this is very different than what the victim perceives. All of what  our senses experience, all feelings and all thoughts have their source within the individual. All of us create our own universe of experience and we are each responsible for what is in it. There is nothing on the outside that is doing anything to me or that could possible have power over the truth of what I am.

The ego can be hurt and feel like it has been abandoned or crushed, but the consciousness that we truly are is far beyond being affected by the outside circumstance or other people.

If we identify ourselves as being solely physical being with a limited lifespan, we are open to being wounded, destroyed, betrayed and killed. It is a fight for survival. On the other hand, if we experience ourselves as pure spirit, there is no possibility ever to be betrayed, harmed or killed in any way.

Many people do understand this intellectually and see the reality of consciousness and how the true self is pure consciousness. However, understanding does not free the individual from the victim consciousness. It is a good beginning to the right direction, a very necessary step, but knowledge becomes wisdom when you actually use it and make it manifest.

This current global situation creates a wonderful opportunity to see victim consciousness in full action. There is the threat of pandemic disease and media drums the number of deaths as the whip to create fear around it. Even had I pulled myself out of living in victim consciousness for the most part, what happens when I am pushed into a collective thought stream that is 100% coloured by the sense of being a victim to a threat from the outside? Suddenly travelling is limited or I can’t go to work. This moment shows me very clearly just how much there is investment inside of me to being a victim. What is my individual choice in that moment of time. What do I choose to make real?

This moment is here for us to fully grasp that the inner is more real than what we see outside. What we choose to put our attention on matters hugely. Our personal beliefs are what colour our lives. Our inner landscape is what becomes the the landscape outside.

The more drastic and dramatic the outside becomes the more important it is that we have a stable inner life that is founded deeper than the surface experiences and the surface thinking level f the mind. Pure consciousness rests within each of us and it is unstruck and untouched by any drama of the human realm. That is where we find the Peace that passes all understanding. No understanding is needed to know the Truth of what we are.

Ascension literally means to rise beyond. We are rising beyond this level of victim consciousness. We are doing this collectively and individually. The Ishayas have seen this time coming and the Teaching of Ascension has been given to us for this very purpose. We have a chance to bring Reality into this dream of victim consciousness…

…with Praise, Gratitude and Love.

Global Fearus Pandemia

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

— Frank Herbert, Dune

What has spread around the world at an incredible speed and efficiency is fear. That in itself has more dire consequences than any physical pathogen. It is not the virus that has put the world into a standstill. This particular virus simply does not have the power to do it. But fear does. And it has.

What we focus on grows. 

One thing that fear pushes the individual into is a flight or fight mode. Awareness becomes narrow and the body prepares to extreme hardship in order to survive. It is a mind-killer. Our attention is heavily on the outside appearances as we are trying to make sense of it all and see where the danger is coming. And what all of this does is that it weakens us physically and in our minds and in our spirit.

In other words this is when a human is the easiest to control and manipulate. This serves a purpose for certain types of outcomes, but that is not where I want to go with this.

As much as it may seem we are struggling with a crisis on the outside in our physical world, in truth we are at a great turning point on the inside and the true challenge here is this.

Are we choosing for love or fear?

This choice is not happening on the surface of the mind. This has nothing to do with surface notions of love or romance or being afraid of snakes for example. At the core of our being it is a matter of life and death, truth and illusion. Do we recognise our selves as the Spirit, the Ascendant, Life itself or do we choose to be just bodies that are subject to death and destruction with very limited life spans.

What are we really?

When fear takes over there is no space to be aware of the truth. It is a cloud that covers the sun. But there is an upside to this experience of fear. It can be turned to good use.

All that energy that is held back and locked into the experience of fear and particularly the fear of death can be used to propel the expansion into consciousness if we are willing to face it. When we are willing to look fear into the eyes and see it for what it is, we will always find it has no reality. The only reality there is, is love. But if we are not willing to move through the dark places where love seems to disappear, we are not going to make a deep and meaningful connection to what love really is.

This fear that is dancing around the world is a blessing in disguise. It is a reminder, an opportunity, an opening to realise a deeper truth about our own selves than we have yet been able to do in this life. It presents a vast amount of energy that we can collectively and individually claim and turn back into Reality. There is nothing but love. That is the message that the Ishayas repeat in all the Thunder books that MSI wrote. There is nothing but love. And we are That.

Life without pain?

Pain is a challenging companion especially if it has come to stay. Chronic pain changes the body and even the physical structure of the brain which can be detected in the brain scans. Pain is an experience that involves the entire brain. In comparison most other experiences affect only a part of the brain.  Chronic pain changes the personality and affects the thinking and attitudes that one has. In that pool of darkness one certainly wishes to find a solution or a path to life without pain.

Mahararishi Mahesh Yogi has famously said that “people need meditation not medication”. While that may sound radical in this world where it seems that most people are on some kind of medication, it still holds a very valid truth. A lot of what we use medication for is the result of lack of meditation or inwardness in life. The desire to seek for remedies from the outside is far greater than any notion of using the inherent healing abilities that every Body has.

This is not to say that medication is bad or that it should not be used. There is balance to everything. The question is more of what we focus on because that has the tendency to grow.

Can one Ascend pain? Is it a realistic remedy and not just a pipe dream or false hope? And what does it mean?

Fear and sense of uncertainty increase the intensity of pain and pushes us deeper into a place of feeling a victim to circumstances with little ability to affect it meaningfully. This is entirely in the realm of inner life, the mind and where we place the focus of our awareness. And this is where the true transformative power lies.

The challenge is that it does not always translate into changing our experience in the body or dissolve the experience of pain. The results can be, but often are not, felt at the surface level. Opening up to a level of reality that is far beyond the victim consciousness widens the perspective and offers the soothing reality of knowing the Self that is not limited to the body or any experience in it. Freedom from pain can be found within that experience and it is very empowering. We might even come to a point of witnessing in our own self how we have created the pain and what purpose it is serving in our life. That is a huge step away from being the victim to it and changes the individual experience from the inside out.

We all suffer from spiritual pain. That pain is the source for all other pain and it travels to the surface and creates any number of physical afflictions or challenging life situations. The spiritual pain is the belief in separation from the Source of All things, separation from the Ascendant Self. There is only one way to cure that and that is through directly experiencing Pure Consciousness right within us.

The Attitudes of Praise, Gratitude, Love and Compassion are great antidotes for any stress, fear and pain that one may have. They relax the body and expand the mind beyond the confines of limited beliefs in separation and pain. If pain can change the person on so many levels, it is also possible to reverse this flow. By choosing to use the mind for Ascension the body has a chance to heal and produce the hormones that alleviate pain. By using Attitudes for Ascension we focus our mind toward the Good and fear has no room to strangle us into victimhood and into the prison of pain. Our personality aligns with expansion and lightness.

Perhaps you are beginning to see how more meditation can serve a person in pain?

It does take an open mind and one that is willing to see deeper than just the surface level of physical experience. But if this resonates with you and there is pain in your life, then do not waste a moment to learn a practice that can open the inner doors of possibility and the Good will flow to you in ways that you can’t imagine.

Without A Reality

War.

This is an all too familiar word that has shaped the past in cruel ways and even today threatens to be the architect for the years to come. War is a state of mind that takes its most obvious and manifest form in the actuality of soldiers killing each other and just about anybody and anything that is perceived to be in the way of the war machines´ set agenda. Even the word WAR elicits a definite response in the human nervous system. A stress reaction in the body and fear that absorbs and freezes the mind.

Hence the opposing force for the expansion, namely the ego, is more than eager to use it to its fullest extent.

When most of us think of war, we place it into a different country and maybe into another culture far away from us. Something that is removed from our personal life experience and hence far from our reach to have any ability to meaningfully affect. For some people it is an actual inescapable everyday reality. But perhaps even they share the same feeling of inability and inadequacy to affect the reality of war. What can you do when the war machine that has no regard for human life sweeps over your village and destroys everything?

Let’s take one step away from the most manifested form of the violence here on earth. Let’s move closer to its inception, the beginning point of what indeed creates war.

War is a state of mind. It is a state of mind that has no basis in Reality, it is literally Without A Reality. What Reality are we talking about?

Look at the mind as a multilayered, multidimensional field, that has a Foundation that all of it is resting upon. This Foundation is the Source for all Life, Love, Energy and Wisdom. The lack of connection to this Foundation creates a lack of all the above mentioned. Our thinking mind that works on the 5-10% level on the surface has little or no conscious connection to the deeper layers of the mind and ultimately to its Foundation. The surface mind is Without A Reality.

This is the mind in a state of WAR. The ego reins nearly unchallenged and its manifestations are according to its rules and laws which are fear and suffering and separation and loss and ignorance.

Each one of us is a carrier of this virus called war. Each one of us in our daily lives supports this state of mind. Or actively chooses to disengage from it creating a connection to the Foundation, to the Reality that the Ishayas call the Ascendant. We always choose for One or the other, Love or fear. We Ascend or die, quite literally.

Violence seems inevitable and unavoidable in this world, but this is by appearance only. It is our belief that creates this reality of violence. Belief that is based on fear and dire lack of the Ascendant Reality.

When we take one step further back  into the subtle realm of inner choice we see a picture emerging. Each one of us is capable of dealing with this virus of war and if we desire to end it altogether we have the perfect antidote for it that is given to us by the Ishayas. They are of consciousness that is forever beyond the level of conflict and limitations created from fear.

How to end war and violence then? The answer is closer than our own heart beat. The responsibility is non other´s than our own. The power to change the world is in our own choice to do so. War is not something far away, something that a government of any given country creates or doesn’t. It is what you and I create or don’t create.

The primary concern here, and this may be more difficult to fathom, is not to end the conflicts that we see happening on the surface in the world. The primary concern is to rise beyond the inner conflict of judgment and fear and end the violence in our inner worlds. Then and only then a new manifestation can take place in the world at large.

The healing of the world always begins with the healing of the self. This is one of the few simple messages the Ishayas have given us to learn and to experience.

If you know how to Ascend as taught by the Ishayas, then you do have the keys to the mastery of Ahimsa, perfect non-violence. Without that enlightenment is not possible. Without that, the war will continue both inside and out.
