« Fate and Free Will Pt. 1 - How Much Choice Does An Unconscious Person Have? | Main | The Mayan Calendar, 2012, and the 6th Day of the Galactic Underworld »


Donna L. Faber

This is a wonderful post. So detailed in ways you just don't see anywhere else. I think it was Albus Dumbledore who said, "The time will come when people have to choose between what is right and what is easy." Kinda of says it for me right there.



Aum Namah Shivaya Robert!


The imperishable sound,
is the seed of all that exists.
The past, present, the future,
all are but the unfolding of OM.
And whatever transcends the three realms of internal linktime,
that indeed is the flowering of OM.
This pure self and OM are as one,
and the different quarters of the self
correspond to OM and its sounds.

--Mandukya Upanishad


This is so difficult. I know I must change, and yet I feel I *cannot*, I *will not*, I refuse. I have been doing battle with this aspect of myself for years, the aspect that *refuses* -- to express itself, to put itself out there, to create something, to work. I am so frustrated with trying to appease this "bad child" aspect of myself that says "no", over and over, with intensity. It's a real block, one that needs disciplining. But I -- it -- refuses self-discipline.

How to change this willful self-ignorance? That is it, precisely -- self-ignorance. It would rather screw everything up than expose itself to the light. It makes me hate myself -- it chooses agony and suffering over enlightenment. And it is me!


Namaste, Dear Robert ;-)


Thank you again Robert for shining your light so clearly into these dark areas of the psyche. This feels like a safe place to explore the "can of worms" opened in my own case of intense emotional abuse in childhood which is still incomprehensible and still far from healed, but more importantly it is bringing me into present awareness of the hurt of others, and of their own awareness, I hope that makes sense, thanks again for this loving classroom.


Robert, this is the tops!! I need this kind of information every day. : ) thanks. kpd


I do think actions mean more than motivation, intent and words. The old adage "Words are cheap," comes to mind. And, "actions speak louder than words." An interesting post to ponder.


Dear Robert, thank you for an insightful article, and the first part included. It describes me in different stages of my development. I was in a state of innocent ignorance, as a young adult. I wasn't cruel or abusive but I was definitely having too much fun and thinking mostly of myself. When I was 25 I had an awakening as you call it- most unpleasant, I can tell you, but it started me on the path. Now it is many years later and I've been kind of stuck in wordly things. Working full-time, paying the bills and so forth. Longing to go back to that little bit of nirvana I once knew. I think growth is spiral, we go back and forth, hopefully a little further upwards each time. I hope that I put forth some of that enlightenment in my daily life and not act out of selfish motivation. And you're right about something else- the universe is always sending out signals. We just have to pay attention. Get away from ourselves long enough to hear and see what God is saying.

Great stuff Robert!
Namaste! :)


Hi Donna - Dumbledore and the rest of our fellowship do know some things, don't we? While sometimes easy is as easy does, there are other times when that's not an option.

Hi Human - Aum Namah ParaMahaChohan! Truly, when we see G*d in all that is, G*d never loses sight of us.

Hi SunCity - The trick is to root out habits that are harmful, and tolerate those that are harmless. Knowing the difference is the difference between a great life and a slow death. Perhaps you need to stop "doing battle," and simply make progress in that which is good. Often we strengthen our problems by too much focus on the drama of the struggle, and forget that this too will pass if we don't keep feeding the beast. What is it in you that perpetuates the struggle? What would die if you quit? What in you agonizes and suffers? What in you "would rather screw everything up than expose itself to the light?" Sounds like you're giving a lot of power and energy to something that really doesn't exist.

Hi Timothy - Blessings to you as well. Thank you for the mantra you left at another stream. I do believe the virtual Sangha is getting stronger in its expression!

Hi Morvah - I figured so many have questions and ideas about such things that this was the perfect time and place to begin to probe into the spiritual dimensions of the apparent problem. I do try to make this a relatively safe space to explore, comment, share, and process what we need to. I am sorry you had to endure abuse in childhood, but I've found that is what unites many of us, and as I maintain, we're smarter, stronger, and more aware together than we are separately. As you heal your wounds, it will make you a light unto your world. As we learn, so we teach.

Hi Kathy - Well, occasionally I get lucky!;-) Glad this opens your heart and mind to what you need.

Hi Nancee - Yes, truly "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." While sometimes we act imperfectly, even that is better than perpetuating illusions. To reference a previous comment, I'd rather know I fell short trying to "do right" than never to have strived at all.

Hi Valerie - Yes, we ALL develop through very similar stages, even if the forms vary somewhat. I also was innocently ignorant, or else I couldn't comment on such things. (I've also been willfully ignorant, but Spirit kept putting pressure on my delusional ego-self until I cracked open like a ripe pomegranate!) I'm not sure we can ever "have too much fun," though I will admit that some types of fun are only appropriate for the ignorant! As we age, of course we wind up "chopping wood and carrying water," since there is more at stake as we get older. No longer immortals in a "blue sky" reality, as it were. Actually, you're spot on that evolution is a spiral, and that as we persevere, eventually our lowest lows are higher than our highest highs when we were without responsibility or wisdom. Karma Yoga has its own rewards, and even an apparently selfish act could actually be enlightened self interest. Getting out of our own way always yields greater detachment, which yields greater things than we previously imagined. Glad you're hanging in there!
