The Truth Is

Sri H. W. L. Poonja, from The Truth Is:

The answers to all of these questions have just one power and import: You are Eternal Being, Unbounded and Undivided. Now you are with someone who has no teachings and only one thing to say and that is also not a teaching: Just Keep Quiet, all will be well, Keep Quiet. You Are God Itself! What else? Here and Now, Everywhere, You are Happy, You are Peace.

Do not entertain any notion that you are in trouble. This is all that you have to do. It is nor a search but the cessation of distraction. We are here to help each other. Don’t entertain the notion that I am high and that you are low. We are here to find out how to be happy, how the whole world can be happy. We can speak about this between ourselves:
– What is the way to be happy and how can we transmit this happiness to all Beings.

The School for Gods

Stefano Elio D’Anna, from The School for Gods:

This book is a map and an escape plan.

Its aim is to show you the path followed by an ordinary man away from a hypnotic view of the world and an accusing and plaintive interpretation of existence, to escape the rut of a programmed destiny.

This book would never have come to be, nor could I have written a single line, had I not encountered the Dreamer and His teachings.

I owe my infinite gratitude to the Dreamer for having taken me by the hand into the world of the Dream, into the world of courage and flawlessness, where time and death do not exist and where wealth knows neither “thieves nor decay”.

On this journey back to the Essence, I have had to abandon so much ballast: destructive thoughts, negative emotions, second- hand beliefs and ideas. I have had to ‘conquer myself’ – acknowledge and challenge the darkest parts of my Being.

All that we see, touch and feel, reality in all its variety, is nothing more than the projection of an invisible universe which exists above our known world and which is the true origin of it.

With great difficulty, we can be aware of being surrounded by invisibility, of living in a world which has its source in dreams, where all that counts and is real in a man is invisible. Visibilia ex Invisibilibus.

And:

The first thing one needs to be aware of to make this journey is one’s own condition of enslavement.

The root, the primary cause of all the world’s problems, from the endemic poverty of vast regions of the planet to criminality and war, is that humanity thinks and feels negatively.

Negative emotions rule the world we know. They are unreal, and yet they occupy every corner of our life. In order to change man’s destiny, he needs to change his psychology, his system of convictions and beliefs. He needs to eradicate from deep within himself the tyranny of his fragile, mortal, fragmented mentality. The planet’s most terrible illness is not cancer or Aids, but man’s conflictual thinking. This is the foundation upon which the ordinary vision of the world is built: the real planetary killer.

And:

“One can only teach if one does not know,” the Dreamer once told me. “Those who truly know, do not teach!”

“What we have ‘learned’, what we truly ‘possess’, cannot be transferred. Happiness, wealth, knowledge, will and love, cannot be acquired from the outside, cannot be ‘given’ but only… ‘re- membered’. They are the inalienable gifts of Being, and therefore, the natural inheritance of every man.

And:

«Even the ordinary man feels secure; his certainties are his fears… his doubts are his reality. He loves them, and would not let them go for anything in the world. From his earliest childhood, he has fed himself with illusory fears, he has eaten the fruit of his negative imagination, of his reverse creativity. As a result of this, he mistakes shadows for real adversity, and lives and feels constantly under threat…»

The Law of Inverse Transformation

Neville Goddard:

If you knew how you would feel were you to realize your objective, then, inversely, you would know what state you could realize were you to awaken in yourself such feeling. The injunction, to pray believing that you already possess what you pray for, is based upon a knowledge of the law of inverse transformation. If your realized prayer produces in you a definite feeling or state of consciousness, then, inversely, that particular feeling or state of consciousness must produce your realized prayer. Because all transformations of force are reversible, you should always assume the feeling of your fulfilled wish. You should awaken within you the feeling that you are and have that which heretofore you desired to be and possess. This is easily done by contemplating the joy that would be yours were your objective an accomplished fact, so that you live and move and have your being in the feeling that your wish is realized.

The feeling of the wish fulfilled, if assumed and sustained, must objectify the state that would have created it.

Reddit:

So in short, give yourself that feeling now.

Contemplate an Ideal & Fall in Love With It

Neville Goddard:

We radiate the world that surrounds us by the intensity of our imagination and feeling. But in this third-dimensional world of ours time beats slowly. And so we do not always observe the relationship of the visible world to our inner nature.

(…)

You and I can contemplate an ideal, and become it by falling in love with it.

On the other hand we can contemplate something we heartily dislike and by condemning it we will become it. But because of the slowness of time in this three-dimensional world, when we do become what we contemplated we have forgotten that formerly we set out to worship or destroy it.

“Either do nothing—just go to school—or do something nobody else does.”

G.I. Gurdjieff:

When my grandmother—may she attain the Kingdom of Heaven—was dying, my mother, as was then the custom, took me to her bedside and, as I kissed her right hand, my dear grandmother placed her dying left hand on my head and said in a whisper, yet very distinctly: “Eldest of my grandsons! Listen and always remember my strict injunction to you: In life never do as others do.” Having said this, she gazed at the bridge of my nose and, evidently noticing my perplexity and my obscure understanding of what she had said, added somewhat angrily and imperiously: “Either do nothing—just go to school—or do something nobody else does.” Whereupon she immediately, without hesitation and with a perceptible impulse of disdain for all around her, and with commendable self-cognizance, gave up her soul directly into the hands of His Faithfulness, the Archangel Gabriel.

Praise and thanksgiving

Neville Goddard:

Thaddaeus, the tenth, is the disciple of praise, a quality in which the undisciplined man is woefully lacking. When this quality of praise and thanksgiving is awake within man, he walks with the words, “Thank you, Father,” ever on his lips. He knows that his thanks for things not seen opens the windows of heaven and permits gifts beyond his capacity to receive to be poured upon him.

The man who is not thankful for things received is not likely to be the recipient of many gifts from the same source. Until this quality of the mind is disciplined, man will not see the desert blossom as the rose. Praise and thanksgiving are to the invisible gifts of God (one’s desires) what rain and sun are to the unseen seeds in the bosom of the earth.

Re: Judas

The twelfth and last of the disciplined qualities of the mind is called Judas. When this quality is awake man knows that he must die to that which he is before he can become that which he desires to be. So it is said of this disciple that he committed suicide,which is the mystic’s way of telling the initiated that Judas ; the disciplined aspect of detachment. This one knows that his I AM or consciousness is his savior, so he lets all other saviors go. This quality when disciplined gives one the strength to let go.

The man who has called Judas into being has learned how to take his attention away from problems or limitations and to place it upon that which is the solution or savior. “Except ye be born again you cannot in anywise enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” “No greater love hath man than this, that he give his life for a friend.” When man realizes that the quality desired, if realized, would save and befriend him, he willingly gives up his life (present conception of himself) for his friend by detaching his consciousness from that which he is conscious of being and assuming the consciousness of that which he desires to be.

Judas, the one whom the world in its ignorance has blackened, will when man awakes from his undisciplined state, be placed on high for God is love and no greater love has a man than this that he lay down his life for a friend. Until man lets go of that which he is now conscious of being, he will not become that which he desires to be; and Judas is the one who accomplishes this through suicide or detachment.

Testing of Your Faith

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, a whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”

Persist in the New State

Reddit:

Self-conception was something I didn’t want to hear about. Why? Cause my victim mentality wanted to stay alive. I would read AIM’s posts and think “cool stuff but I’m going to listen to other people who have victim mindsets cause they know where I’m coming from” Lol.

The moment I accepted I had a victim mindset, I made myself aware I had the power to change it. And yes it was just that easy. I didn’t have to sit down listen to 30 hours of self-love meditations, I just had to acknowledge I have this, I no longer want it, then stay persisting new beliefs that challenged my victim mindset. I starved it to death.

Being aware of who I wanted to be (the me who has it all) claiming I am it right RIGHT NOW was everything I needed to do. It was that simple. The reason it took time was cause I didn’t want to let go of the old story even though I really wanted to. (I’m sure that makes sense lol)

FEEL. Live in the end.

Reddit user:

You don’t even have to believe so much as FEEL. Live in the end. Ignore the voice of doubt. You don’t believe it’s possible because you (nor I, nor anyone else) can begin to imagine how the universe will bend or stretch or break to give you what’s already yours.
