Matthew 22: 14
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
13 Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
I am continuing my theme of inward searching and purifying, and practicing extreme discernment as to what we allow into our lives. At this point we should be focusing solely on that which leads us down the narrow path to freedom and enlightenment. I want to begin this article with a paraphrase of a Buddhist fable.
There was an American—a man who wished to seek enlightnment. So he travelled to the East where the Master lived, with whom he wished to study. Finding the man's residence, he knocked on the door. When it was opened, he abruptly stated that he wanted enlightenment and demanded to see the Master. The door was slammed in his face. There were some benches nearby, so he sat down to consider. "Perhaps I was rude," he thought, and adopted a slightly different attitude on his next attempt to gain entrance to the residence. This too, however, ended with the same result. Once again, he pondered his dilemma. He had travelled all this way to seek enlightenment, and was just a bit irked that the Master's servants did not welcome him. But at the same time, he also began to observe that others knocked at the door, and were welcomed inside. He started to understand that his arrogance was working against him, and so, he thought perhaps that humility was the key to seeing the Master. He tried and tried, over and over, each time becoming much more humble, and each time, the door was closed in his face.
After waiting for hours, the Master finally emerged from his home. As he walked past, the man joined him, and began to speak of his desire to be enlightened. The Master said nothing. As they walked past a pond, the Master suddenly grabbed tha man and stuck his head under water as he struggled to breathe. The Master released him and said, "When you desire enlightenment as much as you desire to breathe, then you shall have it.
I learned this fable many years ago, and it took it a very long time to integrate it into my life. But I did, thoroughly, and I can say without a doubt in my mind, that I desire enlightenment and awakening as much as I desire to breathe AND my actions and behavior prove it. I have read stories about Tibetan students studying with a Lama, seeking enlightenment, who put themselves in the most horrendous situations as they were required to do, in order to purge the hold the physical world has on us all. In the few remaining "spiritual" leaders in which I felt were on a similar path to mine, I have given up two, Lisa Renee and Bernhard Guenther, because they do not practice what they preach. And both support Trump and QAnon. The only remaining person I have as a "spiritual comrade" is Chautauqua. He has not a smidgen of arrogance or materialism about him at all. In fact, though I had read his writings for years, HE was actually the one to contact ME to THANK me for plugging his site. HE is the only one to "lower himself" to associate with someone like myself who is not a "Big Name" in the spiritual world. I often do not agree with what he writes, but he is sincere, and a good and kind man, who is suffering like myself, much related to his beliefs. So, there. Many are called, but few are chosen. We shall see where it all leads.
What is becoming increasingly alarming to me is the whole Trump thing, and QAnon. I know I said I would not discuss it anymore on these pages, but
I feel there is necessity here that I cannot avoid. Here is an article I recently read which spells out even more of the beliefs that QAnon touts.
What Is QAnon, the Viral Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theory?
What makes this all SOOO BAD is that many of the beliefs now associated with them ARE true, and are issues which so many of us have fought to bring to disclosure. But these people have NO SPIRITUAL INTEGRITY whatsoever. They are, many of them, far-right, militia-oriented, racist/white supremacists, and by their behavior, many of them have NO CONCEPT of spiritual awakening. They are simply spouting a bunch of beliefs which they have no doubt gathered from people such as myself, Dane, many of my readers, and those of us truly seeking spiritual awakening. They have NO discernment to guide them in moral behavior, and are capable of ruining the headway so many of us have made, who HAVE done our research AND have spent decades seeking true awakening. Those who are awakening would NEVER use force or violence for a cause. Our tool is our minds and energy. Our other tool is to move farther and farther away from the Matrix and the illusory physical "reality." These people have no clue, at least those in the spotlight. They are merely parroting what we have been saying for decades. Now it is all beginning to look like bullshit.
True spiritual enlightenment and awakening never relies on violence or bigotry. It is only religious extremists that combine the two, and what they seek, ultimately, will prove to be power and control, just like Trump. It is not a new idea, of course, We have the Crusades and the Inquisition, and all the "religious wars" and violence throughout history to the present. I am not saying that we should exclude everybody, but we must practice extreme discernment now. That is NOT the same as bigotry, which promotes hatred against people over that which they have no control, such as the color of their skin or racial/ethnic background, or sexual orientation. I have always welcomed diversity in my life, but now, as we head to the final stages of life on Earth as we know it, we must distance ourselves from those who lie and deny, or promote harm to any living creature. The first type will drag us down and the second carries very foul energy, all of which are easy to get sucked into, because those kinds of people are operating by Reptilian implants. Those of us who have spent decades ridding ourselves of this malware find the presence of those who are still operating in it intolerable. Jesus, too, recognized this.
12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
And let me remind you for the umpteenth time, Bringers of the Dawn foretold of this "false savior," which fits right in to the Trump phenomenon and QAnon, as a harbinger to the final days here on this planet under Reptilian rule, which is why I find it particularly alarming, or maybe welcoming. And let me remind you that we do NOT know how this will all end, or how the end of Reptilian rule will play itself out. The more I see this unfolding, the more chilling it becomes. Just the fact that so many people would even vote for Trump. And I stress that Biden scares me just as much, but he at least is not an open bigot, nor does he promote physical violence against people who do not support him. And let me also remind you that the entire American political scene is nothing but a masquerade, a play being staged and run by those behind the curtain.
But what Trump has done to this country is to teach his flock that lying and making up "reality" to suit your whim as you go along is quite OK. For the past number of weeks, I've felt like I am in a stupor, floating in a balloon over a sea of madness and insanity, and I surely feel that there is without a doubt, two separate realities operating on this planet now, thanks to Trump and his unique gift to create division. I have seen some of the most atrocious yard signs that indicate the ability to discern has absolutely disappeared for half the population of this country. How about this one: "More Peace, Vote Trump." More Peace??? OMG!! I actually burst out laughing as I drove past that one. Yeah, Trump's idea of peace if for everyone to shut up and do as he says. Kinda like Hitler. The last time I remember such hatred and violence in this country is during the 1960s, with the Vietnam protests, Kent State (right around the corner from me), and civil unrest. Or how about this one: "Trump: The Law and Order President." YIKES!! Yeah, these peoples' idea of "law and order" is to arrest those who are RIGHTFULLY protesting police brutality against Black people!!! Then there's this one: "Trump: Promises Made, Promises Kept." Like, WHAT THE FUCK?? Did he promise to promote racial division and hatred amongst our people? Well, then, he certainly did keep his promises. But for those who actually STILL believe he was ferreting out the "Deep State" or saving children from sexual predators, or any of the other bullshit, are living in a world of total delusion. Other than believing he was "working behind the scenes," (which he wasn't), there is not one thing good that he did. His environmental policies alone are enough to make it very clear that he cares about nothing but money, mostly his own and what would potentially benefit him.
The "Million MAGA March turned into considerably less, unlike those for Hillary Clinton, who clearly won the popular vote by several million. And I am
NOT a fan of her, but I do believe the Electoral College needs to go so that EVERY vote counts. But Biden won the popular vote, too, and the inability of
Trump to concede only indicates what a spoiled baby he is.
Trump Supporters, Counterprotesters Clash At DC Rally Contesting Biden's Victory
Just look at these people and their signs. OMG! "Best Prez Ever"??? And Alex Jones! Oh, my! I remember years ago someone recommended him, so I got on his site and listened for about 30 seconds, and nearly gagged. That was my experience with Alex Jones. How do people like that gain such a following? I read somewhere that, I believe it was 47 percent of American people believe what QAnon says is true. How did someone like Hitler do what he did? It is because people believe what appears on the surface, with no ability to discern, whatsoever, that which is going on beneath the surface.
QAnon Lost and Confused After Trump’s Election Showing
This is what happens when people are so desperate for disclosure that they believe anything. Bringers of the Dawn FORETOLD that a false "savior" would fool a great many people. What distresses me is that so many of the people who have been fooled should have been much wiser. Yes, of course, I want disclosure, too, but even without it, I PERSONALLY continue to awaken. For anyone truly on the path to freedom, we CANNOT allow outside influences to affect us. I am certainly not going to fall for something that is so obviously ridiculous. Everything I write about is from my own experience, and when I link to another website, it is because I have found something which is congruent with my truth, unless other wise noted. And why ANYONE would believe that a person without a SHRED of decency about him, who has lived a life of lies, cheating, deceit, and manipulation, catering to only what benefits himself—why would ANYONE think that such a person with such a sordid history would even remotely be interested in serving anyone but himself. People have certainly gone off-the-edge goofy.
For instance, as I've written before, much of what QAnon says IS true, such as the dangers of 5G. But for anyone paying attention, Trump has spoken in favor of 5G, and in fact, shortly after he took office, he said he was ready for 6G. There's an incongruency, then, and it is the incongruencies we must duly note in order to establish what is real and what is pure nonsense. Are there pedophile rings? ABSOLUTELY. I used to have a friend who was a victim. She spent years and years in therapy, which seemed to do little good. It totally messed up her life, and that is beyond tragic that a child should be ruined because of evil adult behavior. But do I believe the Democrats are running a pedophile ring based in a pizza shop?? OMG . . . . Do I believe Hillary Clinton is a criminal? Absolutely—the whole lot of them are. I've said this before and will say it again—the reason QAnon, perhaps has gained so much popularity is that there are tidbits of truth mixed with the lies, and those who are so desperate to expose the evil can no longer discern which is which. That's why we need to practice Extreme Discernment.
So our goal must be now, with complete urgency, to go over our entire lives and belief systems with a fine-toothed comb and see where we are allowing people, thoughts and behaviors to steer us off the narrow path, or to be honest with ourselves, and decide if we are really ready and willing to do what is necessry to awaken in this lifetime. I said recently that I do not judge, and it is none of my business what any of my readers or anyone else chooses as their life path. But it is my business to guide you to what is necessary if awakening and enlightenment is your choice. And there are times when judgment is necessary, as discussed above. You become whatever company you keep and your behavior is guided by your belief system. SO, yes, I DO judge evil, and those who participate in it. The people who spray us with toxic metals are evil. Period. It doesn't matter if you are one of the elites whose goal is depopulation, or some other agenda where you will gain more power and control, or if you are the nobody who flies the plane, knowlingly, or doing as you are told without questioning, or signing a contract that guarantees you will keep your mouth shut. WHEN this all comes out, probably in the final days of earth, THOSE people will be judged just as evil as the elites. Complacency is complicity.
But what about when you find yourself in a situation that you KNOW is not congruent with your beliefs, and yet cannot seem to escape. Are you there because of some material or ego benefit, or are you there because no matter what you do, you cannot seem to get out? If you have tried every avenue and still remain stuck, then perhaps your soul has placed you there to spread the seeds of awakening. Been there, done that, too many miserable times than I care to remember. But in every case, when my work was done, the situation ended on its own, POOF! in an instant, and looking back, I can see why I was there, and know that the higher aspect of myself was responsible for the situation ending. We must always be conscious of "zooming out" to see the bigger picture, and "zooming in" to discern what is going on at the spiritual levels of ourselves. When practicing discernment, the least reliable judge is our five senses.
There are numerous ways to support our spiritual journey, and the best way I've found is to read, read, read, all, or most sorts of books, because even if the subject matter seems far removed from our "spiritual journey," sometimes even one sentence will trigger a thought or memory. Remember, living creatively has to be the first step towards removing ourselves from the status quo. Also, finding "heroes" or role models can trigger our inner power and inspiration. Role models can be real or fictional. Keep in mind that even if they are fictional, they were created through someone else's ideals.
There are so many wonderful people in history who single-handedly made a difference here on earth. Jesus, of course is one. Siddhārtha Gautama is another, who is known as Buddha. In many ways, his path was like Jesus'. Here are the first two paragraphs from the Wikipedia page.
The Buddha (also known as Siddhartha Gotama or Siddhārtha Gautama or Buddha Shakyamuni) was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in Ancient India (c. 5th to 4th century BCE). He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism, and worshipped by most Buddhist schools as the Enlightened One who has transcended Karma and escaped the cycle of birth and rebirth. He taught for around 45 years and built a large following, both monastic and lay. His teaching is based on his insight into duḥkha (typically translated as "suffering") and the end of dukkha—the state called Nibbāna or Nirvana.
The Buddha was born into an aristocratic family in the Shakya clan but eventually renounced lay life. According to Buddhist tradition, after several years of mendicancy, meditation, and asceticism, he awakened to understand the mechanism which keeps people trapped in the cycle of rebirth. The Buddha then traveled throughout the Ganges plain teaching and building a religious community. The Buddha taught a middle way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Indian śramaṇa movement.He taught a spiritual path that included ethical training and meditative practices such as jhana and mindfulness. The Buddha also critiqued the practices of Brahmin priests, such as animal sacrifice.
Like Jesus, he encouraged a life free from materialism, and dispelled the illusion of death (and rebirth), and both had a major impact on humanity without violence. Others who stressed positive change through non-violence were Mahatma Gandhi. Here is a paragraph from this article, a quote by Albert Einstein.
Mahatma Gandhi's life achievement stands unique in political history. He has invented a completely new and humane means for the liberation war of an oppressed country, and practised it with greatest energy and devotion. The moral influence he had on the consciously thinking human being of the entire civilised world will probably be much more lasting than it seems in our time with its overestimation of brutal violent forces. Because lasting will only be the work of such statesmen who wake up and strengthen the moral power of their people through their example and educational works. We may all be happy and grateful that destiny gifted us with such an enlightened contemporary, a role model for the generations to come. Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood.
And one of the greatest Americans known as an activist for change through non-violence was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose inspiration was Gandhi.
Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.; January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Christian minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, inspired by his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.
I also find adventure stories, historical novels and even science fiction that
trigger my creativity and determination. T.H. White wrote his great modern interpretation
of Sir Thomas Malory's history of King Arthur, (who was based on a real person), as a protest against war. He also believed that was Malory's intention. White's
version stresses Arthur's struggle with Might and Right. At first, it was "Might for Right," in an attempt to eradicate the wanton barbarism of Medieval England, but
eventually he was dissatisfied with that, too, and went the spiritual path, stressing Right without Might. Here is my huge set of reviews on this work, followed by
a few of the numerous other books I have found inspiring. I have written well over five hundred book reviews on my site.
The Once and Future King
Sign of the Labrys
The Turning Place: Stories of a Future Past
Black Like Me
Magic and Mystery in Tibet
The Chronicles of Narnia
The childrens' classic, Black Beauty was the only novel written by Anna Sewell. Crippled from a fall as a child, she spent much time being conveyed by horse and carriage. Her bittersweet book exposes the cruelty many of these beautiful creatures were forced to endure. The book, however, had an immense impact in England, and was the force behind animal rights and anti-cruelty laws there. Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, listed as #5 in Modern Library's 100 best non-fictional books of the twentieth-century, exposes the criminal activity undertaken by the US military and Department of Agriculture after WWII— the development of extremely toxic pesticides such as DDT, and selling them to the public as safe. Gosh, I see a pattern, heh? It was she who was partially responsible for the formation of the EPA to oversee and stop such activity, which it did back in then. Unfortunately here in 2020 isn't worth a shit and like all other agencies, caters to corporations. She must be rolling over in her grave. There are so many fine example of common people accomplishing uncommon deeds, and if we wish to escape the confines of this earthly prison, we must align ourselves with energy such as this. There is nothing wrong with getting angry, as long as we do not express it in violence, but used as an energy for benificent deeds, it can catapult us into a higher vibration.
And so, as has been my mantra of late, there are no free rides to the Paradise and Freedom we all seek. We must do our work here to build the balls we need to ascend. I am no fan of suffering, as I have written before, and for many years, I could not understand how or why it was necessary, in order for us to become our fully realized selves. But unfortunately, it IS necessary. Perhaps it is because we fucked up so badly when we allowed the Reptilians to take over this planet. Were we that weak? Or were we cajoled, because something was offered to us that we could not resist? I could see that as the karma we are stuck in now. In any case, we must never ever allow it to happen again when we build our new world. Therefore, only the ones who walk through the narrow gate will be welcomed in. I want to close with a quote from a new member of Dane's community, who shared a comment in his latest Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, November 14, 2020
November 15, 2020 at 5:07 am
What would we hear about geoengineering in a world of total transparency? That they did it to slow global warming? That they did it to cull the population? That it had to be kept secret because the situation was so dire—that for the public to know would disolve the current paradigm overnight and catapult the people into a panic? So be it. If that's the reason, we deserve to know, so that we can deal with it on both a physical and energetic level. How do we shed the yoke of deception and face the reality of our situation?
With truth and transparency, chipping away the facade of lies bit by bit, day by day, as a spiritual practice, as if our lives and the life of our precious planet depended on it.
We must quickly begin to see everything we do as a step forward in our spiritual journey, and if it does not meet the standard, then we should refrain from doing it. We do not have time to waste on things that have little importance in the big picture of where we are going, and wherever it is, we are going there fast. By surrounding ourselves with what is expansive, creative and beneficial to us and the universe, we will find ourselves walking down that narrow pathway with fewer obstacles to trip us up. I see an explosion approaching us, and once it hits, those who have not prepared will find the path even more difficult.
