Greetings, and Happy 2017!
This morning I was on Facebook and I saw that someone I know had liked a page from a “Happiness Coach.” I clicked on the link and saw that this coach has over 252,000 page likes! Not to dismiss this person’s work, but what a perfect representation of where humanity is still at…a kind of “fluff over function” mentality that leaves the collective constantly searching for the next thing to give it a momentary reprieve from its pain and suffering.
I know most Americans woke up this morning to news that shocked them, whether they were happy or not about the results of the election. A man who has no military or political experience was just handed one of the most powerful and influential positions in the world. It is unprecedented in the United States.
"Get over it."
There was great wisdom in those words…..if only he had consciously directed them at himself.
A Message from The Kumara Center for Spiritual Awareness
An unfortunate byproduct of following the spiritual path, for many seekers, is the desire to leave the world altogether. In fact, it is precisely this desire that has brought many of them to their inner work in the first place. This is a trap.
The program of the ego is centered in domination, manipulation and control. It is not capable of doing anything outside of attempting to attain its personal agendas. Desire is born out of unmet needs and those desires to meet the needs drive the personality to disregard everything that is not in alignment with its quest.
It is all done from a place of pain. The unconscious need for love, money, power, control, satisfaction, etc… is what keeps us trapped in cycles of pain and suffering.
A man is easily triggered by his teenage son’s bad attitude and gets offended when he feels his son is disrespecting him. He jumps all over his son about his behavior and both end up in a bad place.
