How to Make a Good Decision

Excerpt from ESOTERICS Course

Once upon a time, around the year 2007, I was informed that I am an “emotional” being with a defined Solar Plexus and that it is important to push things away and give myself time before making a decision. I was taught to wave through the changes of my thought-currents, sleep on it and eventually, maybe, if Im lucky, I get to make a decision.  Continue reading “How to Make a Good Decision”

Karma and It’s Mirror

Excerpt from the Astrology and Cosmology Course

Life is a struggle between achieving spiritual enlightenment and the constant pursuit in the discovery of who one is and what they are here to do. Life is not a war, it is a struggle between these two poles of duality.

For there is no true enemy only the absence of light and the presence of darkness. There is no independent existence creating hell, only one’s own ignorance and lack of responsibility, which ultimately causes a space of incompletion and the accompanying nagging thought-currents. 

This is the key to understanding karma. Most of the time, humans have a great a vision to offer something amazing to the world, yet, they are utterly blind to what is surrounding them in their immediate environment and ignorant to how they are impacting, creating their reality and ultimately causing their karma.

Often, the word karma is used for getting even when someone has been bad, such as “what goes around comes around” or “an eye for an eye” and so on. However, karma is actually outside the context of actions. For karma is not about an eye for an eye nor getting even nor the punishment one deserves. 

The reality of life and the cosmos does not operate on action, it builds upon and responds to sound. All of life on earth and in the cosmos is composed of the vibration of sound and its frequency and beginnings caused through spoken word.

Karma is actually the result of wrong decisions that one has made in the past and the thought-currents that play continuously in the mind as a result of those decisions. You can observe in your mind four to five mental tape themes that play repeatedly over and over throughout the day. These tapes that play are expressing incompletion, which is the creation of karma. It is the sound of the thoughts chattering in the mind that are creating one’s reality and causing karma. Words spoken out loud have the same effect in creating karma, too.

When these tapes play throughout the day it is an indication that one is deeply caught inside the program, the matrix of the Maya. Opinions and judgments, regret and self-hatred revealed through self-talk polarize life and keep one trapped in a space of struggle and suffering, which is karma.

 

There are four mirrors of reality happening inside one’s being: 

1) The inner image that one carries about self

2) The outer image that one projects to the world

3) Others thoughts about who one is in accordance to the declaration that one makes about who they are to others

4) The image that one has about life as they experience

How one handles these four mirrors is what determines quality of life and the amount of karma that one endures. If one is able to live all four mirrors at their peak potential, all karma is cleared as one operates from intelligence and conscious navigation. This is also the result of an open and activated Throat Chakra, which is often, closed and not operating at it’s peak capacity. An activated Throat Chakra is the expression of one’s unique creativity and individuality fulfilling life purpose. 

A closed, distorted Throat Chakra expresses jealousy, comparison, copies what others do because it is not connected to it’s own unique creative expression and often, fails to be authentic, communicate accurate truth or perceive people and events properly. This is also demonstrated through the inability to follow through on one’s word and commitment or a conflicting expression that communicates one thing and then acts out the opposite. Any health issues associated with the throat indicate that one is expressing and experiencing life in this way. Distortion with the Throat Chakra includes ears and eyes and the sense of smell, too. Wherever there are physical health issues in these areas, it is an indication of a lack of integrity or authenticity in how one is operating in life and a lack of integration.

If the outer image of a person is aligned with the inner image that one carries about one’s self, there is a wonderful state of peace inside of one’s being. If the inner image that one holds is aligned with how others perceive one’s image, in alignment with one’s declaration of who they are and the impact of that alignment on others, then there is an expression of love coming from the inside and being received from the environment.

If the inner image is in alignment with how one perceives life, usually distorted, then there are many accidents, destruction and lots of struggle as the image of life is usually lower than the inner image.

If others image of who you are is pulled towards your own inner image, through manipulation then, there is selfish motivation governed by greed or lust, which also causes many accidents, complicated relating and lack of harmony in the environment.

If one’s perception of life is aligned with their outer image – what others perceive one to be in accordance to life purpose and declaration of who one is, then miracles happen as one resides in a state of surrender, bliss and trust, unattached and free-flowing, while being recognized for expressing their own unique creativity and a quiet ego that does not antagonize or stimulate discord in the environment.

These mirrors of reality are a subtle, life-long process of an invitation into a state of oneness. If you look inside, you will find that whatever hurts you, hurts others too. All of humanity suffers the same types of hurts, fears, disappointments and insecurities in different measures, yet all the same. This understanding eloquently demonstrates the space of oneness and the mirrors that we hold inside and outside. It also reveals the importance of living in a state of compassion and grace.

 

There are three principles that govern all life activity and the state of oneness, which clears karma:

1st Principle
Reality mirrors one’s state of mind

Whatever is happening around us and whoever is in the environment is our responsibility. Conscious existence commands that we act with integrity in all our interaction and be responsible for how we impact others and govern our self-respect. 

2nd Principle
Mirroring is an Invitation 

Reality constantly invites us to enter into a state of oneness, beyond the state of duality. 

If you see love all around it is easy to be in oneness, responsible, peaceful and joyful. If you see hatred, then you are being informed of karma and what must be addressed and cleared. Conscious, compassionate, humble, graceful intention keeps one free of the chains of karma and allows for an expansion, which brings  a state of oneness. 

3rd Principle
The Psychology of Reality

Having the understanding that reality, life existence, is constantly giving an invitation to step into oneness and into a state of individual empowerment operating with unique creativity and one’s own set of spiritual powers. 

 

 

The ego is in a constant state of protection through agitation, desperation and aggression, comparison and jealousy.

It is always prepared to be in a space of defensive reaction and proving as witnessed through the constant mental tapes that play throughout the day.

You can observe yourself a hundred times in one day with a mind that decides everything, knows everything, judges everything, knows what is good, what is bad, what is true, what is right and how to resolve problems. Associating reality and image of self and others with this inner talk is the expression of karma. 

By learning how to listen properly, you can actually clear the karma that is being created by the ego and constant, repeating stories that play in the mind. Through learning how to listen to others effectively, one creates more completion and lessens karma, as well. Listening is a powerful, powerful antidote for dropping karma.  

Go and stand in front of a mirror and begin talking to self and just listen while you talk. Allow the thought-currents to flow without censoring or stopping the process. This creates a form of completion that helps to clear karma. It is that simple. Authentic listening allows the subconscious to empty and clear, bringing understanding. You will experience this clearing process in a natural three-part progression:

1) First, a tantrum releasing everything that agitates

2) Then, you start to become bored

3) And finally, tiredness settles in 

Through this self-talk and listening, one’s subconscious is emptied and karma is lovingly revealed indicating with whom one must have completion and a clearing. Notice how much agony you have or how much joy you are experiencing in life. See the context from where you are operating and creating your reality. If there is any inauthenticity, lack of integrity or lack of responsibility inside of you, then you are pulled down and more karma is created. You can see what kind of reality you are creating through this purging exercise. And yes, you can take control of your life and create a better reality. For consciousness resides in the space between body and mind and has the ability to create anything, know anything and to be always blissful. This is the state of grace, with beautiful concepts and ideas for creativity.

Compulsive, paradoxical patterns are what keeps one in self-defeating habits and in a state of disempowerment. When there are lots of incompletions, it weakens the willpower and ability to create and thrive. Instead of being focused on others behavior or their lack of ability to fulfill your expectations, turn it around and focus on self, notice how you can become more responsible, more authentic and in a state of integrity. 

Allow thought-currents to flow through and not become stuck. Channel your energy into expressing unique creativity without comparison or copying another, listen to lovely Sanskrit mantras for tuning into a different sound and vibration in the mind, ultimately creating a new frequency.

This breaks the patterns of karma. By becoming authentic, real, responsible and intelligent from an integrated space, karma begins to melt and life takes on an entirely different quality and tone. 

As an adult with free will – you are the creator of your reality – good or bad. 

A long look in the mirror will confirm this to be true.

Right Place Right People

An ongoing theme throughout life for many is, “Am I in the right place doing the right thing with the right people?”

Most of the time, one does not know why they are in a particular place. Where one has landed is not created through perception, as most might believe. Rather, a series of decisions based on conditioning leads one to the place where they are standing and the reality that they are experiencing.

Goo and It’s Ewwww

Inside the complexity of an aura are the seeds of karma – this life and from past lives and the nature of one’s character exemplified by color, smell and sound. The composite of all these attributes dictate life and how it is experienced as well as condition of health and how one relates socially.

Even more fascinating is that it is the influence of the planets that write the life story and dictate most events and conditions: health, psychology and physiology and relationships. In a large way, we are a robot for the cosmic program. Thank heavens the creator has designed the human experience so that there is a slight bit of adjustment in this pre-written destiny through personal will. With just enough willpower and intelligence, one can manage life in such a way that there is less struggle, crisis and disappointment and the opportunity for more beauty, enjoyment, good health and creative satisfaction. 

It takes tremendous courage and individuality to apply intense willpower that is strong enough to bend and dominate the influence of energies into a positive direction. This program, the Maya matrix is not designed for achieving bliss and joy in an easy way. No, it is designed to push a human through a series of painful, trying events that are designed to refine the character and strengthen integrity, maturing over many, many lifetimes. One life is lived leading into another life filled with a new set of circumstances, picking up where the previous left off and to continue the stream of refinement and maturation. Reincarnation is a big part of the orchestration of the program and the development of the permanent atom. Ultimately, we are refining matter through the process of integrating spiritual forces. Each life is only a chapter in a larger volume already written towards a destiny of union with our Higher Self as a fully conscious, realized being. 

Are we not born with the constitution of integrity and authenticity required for realization? 

A child is more innocent and virtuous than an adult, yet, every human is designed with its quirks and challenges that eventually, express in great magnitude when one has reached adult life.

Interestingly enough, humans are born with an activated thymus gland, which exudes a more universal way of sharing love, cooperation, compassion and consideration. However, for some reason, that begins to shut down around the age seven after one has entered first grade in elementary school.

What was once a free, expanded, creative way of being becomes an organized, structured system: mind and body, for operating in a fixed way, serving a specific purpose. The traditional educational system does not allow for uniqueness nor creative expansion. It also insists that a child sit quietly, unmoving for hours and controlled by unenlightened beings with their own strange quirks and personality oddities, evaluating the worth of the growing child. If a teacher does not a like a particular student, too bad. The child must learn how to cope with the wrong environment surrounded by the wrong students and unenlightened teachers who are often, in a much worse state psychologically than the child. 

No wonder the thymus gland begins shuts down. 

Highlighted throughout the teachings of Jesus, in order for one to enter into heaven, they must first become a child – the child that existed there before there was conditioning influencing the character. 

Surely, when the child is yet free, playful and innocent without the oppressive influence of a grading system contrived by ignorant adults, the aura is a beautiful hue, free of knots, seeds and nasty thought-currents and most likely, has a lovely fragrance. 

The more one is shut down to higher, spiritual influences from the higher planes of existence, the more one is suffering and challenged by life circumstances. Equally, the more ignorant that one operates as they relate, move through life and make decisions, the more they shut down and become a robot. The matrix is the perfect environment for creating a slave. 

The extremity of life experiences that most suffer add considerably to the weakened state of health that keeps the hospitals full, the pharmaceutical companies thriving as one of the most powerful commercial enterprises and the massive appeal of alcohol and tobacco as means for surviving in the program, unconsciously. They work wonders at dulling the mind and senses, keeping one asleep to life and moving in a robotic fashion. 

It is unfortunate that the process of awareness is slowed down and distorted through the formal educational system and the toxic components of society, such as alcohol, tobacco, food preservatives, coloring agents, vaccinations, “natural” flavors, etc. It has not helped western society, either, to be brainwashed through orthodox religion conveying astrology is evil. That has only disempowered humanity a thousand years behind its potential. 

Instead, we have a toxic reality to surf and the consequences that it brings into our life experience. This creates what I refer to as the “Aura of Goo and its “ewwww”.  

It is up to human intelligence to discover the alchemy of how to get the best ride through the cosmic play and clean the “goo” out of their system so that they can thrive and survive – in a beautiful way. 

There is nothing more liberating than understanding the makeup of one’s individual design based upon the elements and the planets. Once this is understood, one gains the tools for tremendous empowerment to move through life in a much more graceful, beneficial, peaceful, loving way. 

A common theme that is revealed in most astrological life stories is that if a person doesn’t apply certain disciplines to achieve mastery over their ego, then most likely, they will suffer a sickness, a disease or mental delusion. It is that simple. 

Many, many people rationalize their illness and physical discomforts without taking the responsibility to apply the correct methods for better health. Often, people rely on traditional methods to guide their process of self-care such as modern medicine, pharmaceuticals and acceptance of disease as a common, normal part of life. 

I have watched people laugh at the idea of a purification practice as a means to overcome their illness. Instead, they choose to manage their ill health, long-term through pharmaceuticals and regular trips to the doctor. It is quite bizarre to witness. Life does not need to be like that, at all. 

With this delusional existence we find lots of auras filled with “goo and ewwwww”.

It is fascinating to watch simple morning hatha yoga stretches remove stiffness in the joints and mild body pain within a few minutes.  It is profound to experience karma, unpleasant thought-currents and seeds of illness snap out of the aura during the application of pranayama. It is captivating to witness the body, aura and thought-currents change drastically through controlling the senses as taught in the practice of pratayahara. It is awe-inspiring to taste the fruits of relationships healed and healthy new ones form based on the practice of Yamas and Niyamas, the moral, ethical lifestyle practices taught in the introductory level of the science of yoga. It is profound to observe the Higher Self, or consciousness commune with the body during meditation.

Perhaps it is too easy or maybe people just cant grasp it because they are so thickly covered in goo and eeewww. 

Understanding Goo and Ewwww

When looking at a person’s design, I look at it from several different directions astrologically to grasp the full nature of their ego, behavior and the impetus to do what they do and what may happen; what could be avoided with conscious navigation and the challenges that are there possibly causing disease. 

Looking at the planets that are influenced heavily by the elements and how they are aspected with other planets, houses and constellations offers tremendous clues as to why certain health issues are arising and what type of corrections in behavior and thought-patterns can be applied to bring good health back into the body. This is intelligent life navigation and wise decision-making.

For example, recently, I met a woman with multiple health problems such as breast cancer, a weak collapsed ankle with a weak knee, throat problems, issues with her left eye, an overly taxed spleen, nerve problems and so on. It was an interesting mix of maladies inside of one body. One can imagine the thought currents behind the conglomeration of various illnesses. Here, we have the emotions of fear, sadness, depression, jealousy, cruelty, mistrust and other similar expressions coloring life experience, shaping reality, creating the thought-currents and influencing relationships.

Her health can also be narrowed down to a couple of basic tenets. Through the ancient I Ching, I found that one of her health issues was directly related to her tendency to pass off her willpower rather than take responsibility for her life decisions. This caused her to have a weak ankle and leg. With an investigation into the elements and other pertinent factors, it was revealed that she is naturally an unhappy person who has a tendency towards a selfish, materialist nature that is slightly power-hungry. Add a dash of cunningness, deceit, and jealousy, she was bound to have health problems with her left eye. 

Through tempering her materialistic, greedy, selfish nature, applying more integrity, compassion and consideration, (such as what is outlined as the antidotes for the “Three Evils” of the ego) into her interactions with others and managing the thoughts she entertained creating the patterns of disease, most of her maladies could be overcome and healing would occur. 

As I explained some of this to her, she softly chuckled and commented that she was fine with the way things are – sick and dying. She was enjoying her bad habits too much to learn anything new that could change her life for the better, obviously. Very strange, indeed. I did notice recently, that she started taking one of her herbal medicines again when she observed me taking my daily dose of natures care. This is the only thing we can do, is be an example when someone has not asked for our help or for information that could change their circumstances.
