road less traveled

On this life journey, I’m at a place where I’m here to report some startling news:

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH EVERYTHING.

Yes.

What I mean is this:

If you are someone on a personal quest for righteousness-be it with your physical health, your diet (what you eat and/or how you eat it), manifesting the life you want (spouses, relationships, houses, cars, finances, peace of mind, etc.) or some kind of spiritual enlightenment (meditation, religious practices, etc.) then you’ve probably noticed something. (And if you haven’t noticed it, then you sense it but can’t put your finger on it yet)….

That “it” is that THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH EVERYTHING.

That means:

one-what you do will never be enough

two-there will always be different people saying their way is right and that their way works.

three-Like #2, there will be diametrically opposing thoughts, ideas, methods, laws, beliefs causing frustration and confusion among those seeking truth

At this point on my journey, I’m beginning to realize something: TRUTH IS RELATIVE.

I have some new “truths” I go by now-some very recently. Here they are:

one-BE CRITICAL THINKERS. USE YOUR INTERNAL DIVINELY-BESTOWED FACULTIES TO FORM YOUR OWN BELIEF SYSTEMS IN LIFE. THESE “DIVINE” FACULTIES INCLUDE YOUR INTUTITION, YOUR INTELLECT, YOUR ABILITY TO DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS THROUGH DEDUCTION AND INDUCTION OF INFORMATION AND TO ULTIMATELY CONNECT THE DOTS OF WHAT YOU’RE SEEING, HEARING, OR READING.

two-QUESTION EVERYTHING. DON’T GIVE GURUS, HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES, POLITICIANS, LIFE COACHES, “EXPERTS”, DOCTOR OZ, LUMINARIES, OR ANY SUPPOSED “AUTHORITY FIGURES” THE POWER TO MOLD YOUR REALITY FOR YOU. REMEMBER, EVERYTHING YOU SEE OR READ IS JUST INFORMATION TO BE INTERPRETED. HOW YOU INTERPRET IT IS WHAT MAKES YOU YOU. PROBLEM IS, WE’RE TOLD HOW TO INTERPRET INFORMATION, WHICH COMPROMISES OUR PERSONAL INTERGRITY AND FREE WILL. DRAW YOU OWN CONCLUSIONS. NOBODY IS SUPPOSED TO AGREE 100 PERCENT ON EVERYTHING! THERE’S A WORD FOR THAT-IT’S CALLED CLONING.

three-TREAT TRUTH LIKE A BUFFET; FILL YOUR “PLATE” WITH ONLY THE THINGS YOU WANT, NEED, AND THAT TASTE GOOD TO YOU. I KNOW, WE’VE BEEN BRAINWASHED TO BELIEVE TRUTH IS THIS UNIVERSAL ABSOLUTE THING FOR EVERYONE AND IT IS WRONG TO “PICK AND CHOOSE” BUT THAT IS A COMPLETE LIE.

four-STAND UP FOR YOURSELF; NO LONGER ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE’S TRUTHS TO COMPROMISE YOUR FREE WILL TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN. THIS ALSO MEANS NOT ALLOWING THEM TO JUDGE YOU BASED ON THEIR BELIEFS AND PERCEPTIONS OF REALITY. REMEMBER, WE’RE ALL SEARCHING AND GROWING. I’VE SEEN PEOPLE SO ANIMATE THAT THEIR WAY WAS TRUE TURN AROUND AND DENOUNCE THE SAME “TRUTH” A SHORT TIME LATER UNDER THE GUISE OF “NEW DEVELOPMENTS”. I WOULD GET SO PISSED OFF AT THESE PEOPLE, THINKING THEM TO BE HYPOCRITES AND SOMETIMES HUSTLERS TO THE MASSES OF PEOPLE WHO CONVENIENTLY GIVE THEMSELVES A WAY OUT AT EVERY CONTRADICTION TO BENEFIT THEMSELVES.

BUT I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GIVING THEM THAT KIND OF POWER OVER ME, ANYWAY. THEY CAN SAY WHAT THEY WANT, IT’S MY CHOICE TO BELIEVE THEM.

I get that now. And I hope more of us start getting it.

I’m starting to question EVERYTHING. I mean even the stuff that is deemed unquestionable.

I did that with religion. I was ex-communicated.

Now I’m doing that with Universal Laws. I’m beginning to wonder if these Uniersal Laws are solid as they say or if that is just their belief in them being unchangable is what makes them unchangable. In short, I’m wondering if our power of BELIEF is more than we’ve been told.

You probably have your own “ponderings” from things you’ve observed. My advice is to join me in following those leads. I think we’re onto something.

In “Idomewed” fashion, remember to say “I do” to yourself first-now and always.

Have a blessed holiday season, too 🙂

Love,
Helen

I’ve come to the conclusion that this concept of moralism (good versus evil) is the most deadly virus on the planet.

It KILLS our self-esteem, our self-worth and severs our connection with ourselves.

How?

Glad you asked.

When we feel something is “right or wrong” it means we are judging it. When we judge, we separate ourselves from that thing. We also become blind to our own reflection, because usually the very thing we are judging as “bad, evil or wrong” is what we really see in ourselves.

Historically speaking, Morals were meant to keep humanity in check. (for who?) Morals automatically degrade us from infinte spiritual beings in a physical body down to an animal who cannot be self-ruled and self-governed. Morals replace our ability to be masters and mistresses of our own destiny.

I struggled with this “staying neutral” idea at first. It seemed impossible to do in real life and I felt somewhat restricted. But over time, it became more clear that not placing judgments is a freedom not a restriction. Morality labels everything as “good or bad” and making all these judgments is mentally exhausting. We get so frustrated over what other people are doing and how it’s hurting the environment or it’s hurting their health or their children. We waste alot of energy getting upset and worrying over such things. This hurts us and oftentimes makes us sick or we feel superior to someone we see on the news doing something “bad”. Morality, ultimately, is the sugar that feeds the fungus that is our ego.

Because while we’re sitting there judging someone else, we could actually be doing something about it.

It’s a terrible thing when we feel we are a bad, terrible person because we committed a particular act or had a particular thought that is deemed unacceptable by society. That’s another thing moralism and judgment does: it robs us of our individuality. What is “right” or “wrong” is a consensus rather than an individual decision. It makes us slaves to what other people think about us.

See, what I am learning is that what we have been conditioned to see as “right” or “wrong”, “good” or “evil” or “okay” and “unacceptable” is really what is beneficial or detrimental to us. A true moral decision is one where you discern whether something is right for you or if it will harm you.

Since I’ve been laying off the judging people, life has been alot better. My marraige with me, myself and I has been going smoother, too.

Practice not labeling or judging others—and especially yourself. It’s when we stop judging ourselves that we stop judging others.

Until we meet again, love!
Keep the love alive!
Say “I do!” to you!
Lots of love,
Helen
