If Jesus came to earth and said ” I am the greatest man to ever walk the face of this earth””….would that be ego? I find that most often when we speak of ego…we are talking about someone else’s ego but really it is our ego and we don’t know it? What I mean is this: If I say ” I am the greatest man to ever walk the face of this earth”….many will be offended and say that I am arrogant and crazy etc but in reality it is they who are arrogant and crazy. Honestly…how arrogant and crazy is it that I cannot be what and who I say I am? It is they who have the ego because like Jesus or any spiritually evolved individual ..I may be speaking my simple truth. Without ego. Their ego tells them that my ego is speaking but in reality….it is their ego that cannot accept my statement because ego is competitive, petty and jealous? Oh…the ways of wisdom. When a person begins to evolve….they are beaten down by the very forces of nature and the universe itself (trials and tribulations) until the person cannot even raise their head without consciously acknowledging that they have indeed been beaten into submission and their own smallness and even nothingness is truly and completely understood. In this way the ego is subjugated to compassion, righteousness and the spiritual path. – The King
I don’t like the ” new age movement”. I mean the idea of the movement is great but the delivery of the message always leaves me dry. You know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about all the clichés that are thrown around by people who consider themselves to be on a spiritual journey. Clichés like ” feel the light” or “all you have to do is believe ” or “raise your vibration” etc etc etc. Now these statements may be and pretty much are indeed true but they are like everything in the modern world. Incomplete. They are incomplete and like a piano without keys they are useless. Just slogans like “change you can believe in”. Empty words from many many eons ago that used to have real meaning. Spirituality and the occult go hand in hand. One cannot know how to raise their vibrations regardless of how much they have read or how many youtube videos they have watched unless and until they have been initiated into the occult. They can only understand from the position of where they are. I find these dry words to be almost anti productive because from what I see….these empty words only produce empty parrots that have never been tried and have never been through the spiritual fire. These clichés make it easy for any mentally deficient individual to appear as someone that is spiritual and perhaps even enlightened. Yet the reality is that without an initiation into the occult and without going through the spiritual fire of suffering and suffering consciously one is simply in the bullshit business. While it is true that there are some with different degrees of knowledge and skill…the new age movement has produced thousands of pseudo psychics and astrologers and all different kinds of utopian philosophers preaching half truths and getting wealthy with absolutely no experience in the matter of spirituality. I have a good rule of thumb for the people when they are looking for a spiritual teacher. The first question a seeker should ask is: So…. Can you tell me about your suffering?
Revelations 3:21 The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Revelations 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
