CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 65

DAY 65

The Divine Father-Mother created me through the extension of Love. When I rebelled against God and decided to make this world along with the collective ego-ahamkar, I was given a correction for the separation I participated in. I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.

 

I commit to Liberation by embracing today’s affirmation. Contemplating it reinforces to me that I have no other purpose but to Love and Liberate through forgiveness. Today I make a total covenant with the Father-Mother to embrace my purpose. I want the moksha Liberation of others from pain and guilt to be my only purpose, so I therefore release my attachment to other purposes I have admired.

 

There are two aspects to my full embracing of moksha Liberation being the impetus behind my true purpose to forgive. The first is to recognize moksha Liberation as my ultimate focus, and the second is to let go of all other pursuits I have contrived in this motion picturedream life. This is how I take on the mantle as one among many messiahs of this world among other worlds made by individual egoic-ahamkar minds. Accepting that role is the one and only way to proclaim and mean that “I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.” By doing this I will find santosha-contentment and shanti peace for and in my mind. The thought waves and fluctuations in my brain will then be magnetically charged with positivity by the Higher Mind in me.

 

Today and in several days to follow, I will reserve ten to fifteen minutes during the course of the day for extended meditation on the true meaning of today’s idea. I want to be free by releasing burdens, projected blame, and any feelings related to shame stemming from attack thoughts I may hold in my mind. Being the Liberation of the world, becoming a joint messiah gives me the fulfillment I have been hoping to find since the beginning of the illusion of time.

 

I will engage with the affirms at the same time each day, that is for the extended practice time. Determining it now, before hand will help to cement in and make me commit to remaining faithful to the time spent in meditation. I need to do this to have a fixed time set aside for communing in yoga-union with God and also having time for the mundane and changing tasks of each day. Jeshua says that this is part of disciplining the mind for the scope of long term growth all so that the Holy Spirit Mother can use this carved out time for communion and ananda-bliss.

 

To practice in a given sitting, I will contemplate today’s affirmation. Then I will close my eyes, repeat what I have said either mentally or out loud, and observe the mind with discrimination to see what thoughts may enter its field of awareness. When I am in the early phase of practice, it is okay to let unrelated thoughts come into my mind. The goal is to dig up all that surfaces to interfere with my contemplation. I will take notice of each thought that fluxuates in my brain-mind field giving it them little significance. I will remain detached and will refute each one by saying:

 

This thought I do not want. It represents a hindrance to attaining my only purpose.

 

What I will discover is that intrusive thoughts will diminish. But, I will attempt to forego the effects of any possible thoughts coming into the brain-mind field for a minute or so longer so as to catch any trivial ones that my have found their way in past my filtering faculty. I will not apply this additional effort with force. Instead I will affirm:

 

On this tabula rasa, this blank slate, is written my true purpose and calling.

 

To finish the practice, I will recite today’s affirmation idea once again and spend the rest of the practice time meditating on its value and significance. I will also be grateful for the healing aid acceptance of it brings for its ability to put an end to discord within, and satisfying the full measure to which I want Liberation regardless of the ignorant attempts I may engage in to block all its positive effects from being magnetically attracted to me through vibrational form.

I will also utilize shorter practice periods, every possible hour I can on the hour and say:

 

The Divine Father-Mother created me through the extension of love. When I rebelled against God and decided to make this world along with the collective ego-ahamkar, I was given a correction for the separation I participated in. I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.I want no other calling and this is all I am meant to do.

 

At times during my practice I will close my eyes, while at others I will scan the apparent outside environment around me. What I envision now will take on a whole different meaning when I do this.

Many Faces of the Ego : Chapter 4 “A New Earth”

Chapter 4 in Eckhart Tolle’s book “A New Earth” centered on the roles that egos assume and the “many faces” of individual and collective egos.

To get its needs met, an ego will play a “role”. Things it may try to get from someone are material gain,  a sense of power, superiority, specialness, and gratification – either physical or psychological.

People are usually unaware of the roles they assume. Other things the ego through a role will seek are attention and psychic energy. They will seek the energy outside themselves because they are unconscious that it exists within them. So attention, recognition, praise, admiration, wanting to be noticed, and needing to have its existence acknowledged are aims of the ego roles that are assumed.

Egos derive from a conceptual sense of self, whether positive or negative – positive might be (I’m the greatest) and negative might be (I am no good). Tolle says that behind every positive self-concept is the hidden fear of not being good enough and behind every negative self-concept is the hidden desire of being greater or better than others. For instance, the shy, inadequate ego that feels inferior has a strong sense of superiority.

VILLAINS

Some egos will settle for other forms of attention through a “villain”-like role if it can’t get praise or admiration. Not getting positive attention, they seek the negative , maybe by provoking someone else to get a negative reaction out of them. For example, we see children misbehaving to get attention.  An important point made in the text was that the playing of negative roles is pronounced when the ego is magnified by the pain body, rather emotional pain from the past that wants to renew itself through more pain. You see this when people commit crimes for fame or seek attention through notoriety and condemnation. The voice behind the seeking is “please tell me I exist, that I am not insignificant”.

VICTIM

Playing the victim is a common role of the ego that consists of the personal drama of “me and my story”. Egos don’t want the false stories to end. They think that problems equal their identity. The voice that very well might drive this type of person is “I am treated unfairly by life and God.”

LOVER

Role playing the lover is done to attract and keep a relationship going or to initiate one with a person who will make a given ego happy, make them feel special, and they believe that a certain person will fulfill all their needs. Falling in love is really, in most cases an intensification of egoic wanting or needing.  Egos become addicted to people, rather the image they have of them. Falling in love, most of the time has nothing to do with true love. It is a matter of “I want you” vs. “I love you”.

LETTING GO OF SELF-DEFINITIONS

This section focused on the idea of having roles being conditioned by environmental and social structures. In this modern world, people are confused about where they fit in and who they are. Tolle’s main point under this subheading was that “when you fully accept that you don’t know (if you look to thought for an identity) then you enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you are.”

PRE-ESTABLISHED ROLES

When you play roles, you are unconscious. But, when you catch yourself in a role, you “create a space.” This is the beginning of freedom from a given role. Some people totally identify with their roles, for example a doctor who doesn’t see their patient as human, but just a case history.

When people do identify with pre-established roles or function, “human interactions are inauthentic, dehumanized, and alienating.” Furthermore, “pre-established roles can give the comforting sense of identity, but ultimately, you lose yourself in them”. Functions in heirarchical organizations lend themselves to becoming role identities. For instance, in a government institution, the military, church structure, and in corporations.

Some pre-established roles are “social archetypes” such as the middle-class housewife (diminishing), the tough macho male, the female seductress, the “non-conformist” artist or performer, people of culture, and the adult. As a note, the Hippie Movement was a rejection of social archetypes, roles, and pre-established patterns of behavior in addition to egoically based social and economic structures. “Hippies” refused to play roles imposed on them. The 1950s were about conforming while the 1960s was about rejecting conformity. The Hippie movement made possible the movement of Eastern wisdom and spirituality to come to the West and play a part in Global Awakening.

To summarize more efficiently, Tolle spent time debunking false happiness and roles people assume, examined the roles and functions that enter parenthood, such as manipulating children through unconscious behavior versus being alert, aware, still, and present in the moment, he talked about conscious suffering and how suffering both comes as a result of the ego, but also burns the energy of the ego up, using the “man on the cross as an archetypal image to show how suffering does in fact erode the ego, he talked about how hard it is to give up the roles, fearing a loss of identity versus coming to know yourself as being, and then he examined the pathological, paranoid, schizophrenic, and split-personality nature of the ego and its roles.
