      "But YCYOR makes a fatal mistake in reasoning that dark influences can
      therefore be kept out of one’s reality by denying their existence. The
      problem is that ignorance and denial of something that has its own
      independent existence gives it room to maneuver in ways you refuse to
      perceive. The darkness within, your shadow side, has its own agenda and
      desires that continue to operate no matter how much you try to pretend it’s
      not there, and they will manipulate your thoughts and behavior without you
      knowing it. Likewise, the darkness outside of you, namely the plethora of
      predatory forces in human and nonhuman forms as well as the external
      consequences of poor choices made over the years, will inevitably give you a
      rude awakening from denial. In other words, when wishful thinking and denial
      is chosen over awareness and responsibility, things catch up with you sooner
      or later. For further discussion on YCYOR, please see my article "

      J:Creating your own reality is not denying the existence of anything. He
      has missed the point entirely. His very persistence in perceiving "darkness"
      and a "shadow side" is creating them... Creating your own reality is not
      pretending that something is not there, nor is it focusing on the darkness
      that may inhabit other humans not aware of their ego... His denial of the
      existence of the ego will certainly give him an awakening, poor thing.



      "So instead of positivity combined with awareness, you might choose
      awareness at the expense of positivity. The problem is that while awareness
      prepares you to deal with negative phenomena, a negative attitude actually
      increases the occurrence and severity of such phenomena. "


      J:He has chosen awareness at the expense of positivity here it seems to
      me. He is still focusing on the negative phenomena that is going to come his
      way see and he thinks that having a positive attitude while still focusing
      on it will help make it better.

      "This extreme dualism is rooted in ego seeking retribution for perceived
      injustices but using ego-based means of achieving that retribution. "

      J:Not just extreme dualism, the ego uses dualism to combat and confuse the
      growing soul.

      "An interesting thing happens to those who have a fear-based preoccupation
      with dark influences in their lives. They start shadow-boxing a variety of
      phenomena that they themselves are responsible for creating or drawing in. "

      J: He is right here. The fear based thoughts come from the ego.

      "Depends on their belief system, but here I mean something like a massive
      increase in suspicious characters following them in public, black helicopter
      harassment, signs of tampering and monitoring, constant tormenting by dark
      astral and etheric entities, ongoing violent alien abductions, and so on.
      These things may have their own independent existence, but they are drawn in
      and enabled by skewed awareness and negative attitude, especially – and this
      is important – when one mistakes these “attacks” as necessary confirmation
      that one is on the right track, that one has irritated the dark forces by
      throwing a wrench in their works. This mistaken belief only serves to
      further reinforce what has already become a turbulent path in
      life. "

      J: Amazing that he is allowing so much control by his ego and it flows
      right over his head. So he just said that these things may have their own
      existence, but are drawn in. This is true, the fearful thoughts of the ego
      insinuating themselves on the unaware soul "to focus on", speeds them into
      your life. However it is not a mistake in being aware of these things
      coming into your life as upsetting the apple cart of others egos, the
      mistake is in accepting it. By allowing the fear factor you are accepting
      it in your life and your spirit then gives you more. The mistake is in
      allowing it in your life at all. It is not a mistake to chuckle about how
      your ego or another's has attempted to throw a wrench in your efforts at
      awareness when you catch it. For laughter is compassion and you do not fight
      hate with hate. He dances around the truth to make it appear that those on
      the internet noticing these things are paranoid and bringing it on
      themselves, when it is sometimes is the case that it happens as part of the
      criminal brains bullying tactics when it realizes it does not know
      everything and is trying to keep control. Hence a finger is pointing to
      the next bad guy... Note this...

      "Contrary to YCYOR, losing the negative attitude is not enough to solve
      the problem since even if you don’t attract something, that something can
      still volitionally attract itself to you, so that is where awareness comes
      in to mentally block or physically nip such problems in the bud. "


      J: Whoa... This guy has just given sentient abilities to "things"...or is
      he admitting what I just said... It is about taking control of your
      thoughts back from the automatic position most humans are in at the moment.
      Where they are not aware which thoughts are theirs(souls) or which thoughts
      are brains(egos) and thus are prey to those egos of others who have gained
      much power over mundane things. Mundane things being those things the ego
      thinks it needs to survive rather than those things the soul needs to learn
      and evolve. The brain is not god, the soul resides at the base of your
      spine and when enlightenment occurs the spirit pulls the soul up to the
      brain and the ego dies in it's present state as controller of the brain only
      to evolve within the spirit/souls new being. Only the ego does not know
      this as it is not in it's memory(proof the ego is only a translator/receptor
      with memory), and it is afraid it will die. This was programmed into it to
      save the soul while the body was young to give the soul a chance to grow,
      but it was never meant to be a controller of the soul... The soul was
      suppose to take control at a certain point. You need to take control of your
      own thoughts and imagination and switch your car off automatic... What do I
      mean by that? If you do not want it in your life do not focus on it, and if
      you accidentally do for a split second become a lookie lou at an accident,
      immediately say, Not for me... Wow you know something just occurred to
      me... Maybe this is how the angels in Washington's vision come to help
      America... Can you see it???





      Dear Friends,

      Love and Light.

      David

      The Trap of Combative Dualism The New Age “love and light” philosophies
      get plenty of criticism for being ignorant of the darker side of reality,
      for being steeped in denial and wishful thinking, and for turning its
      adherents into weak doormats. The “You Create Your Own Reality” concept
      (YCYOR) is central to the paradigm, based on the assumption that everything
      that happens outside of you is a reflection of what goes on inside you.
      Proof of this is offered via the observation that positive thinking attracts
      positive experience and negative thinking attracts negative experiences –
      which is accurate, as far as I can tell.
      But YCYOR makes a fatal mistake in reasoning that dark influences can
      therefore be kept out of one’s reality by denying their existence. The
      problem is that ignorance and denial of something that has its own
      independent existence gives it room to maneuver in ways you refuse to
      perceive. The darkness within, your shadow side, has its own agenda and
      desires that continue to operate no matter how much you try to pretend it’s
      not there, and they will manipulate your thoughts and behavior without you
      knowing it. Likewise, the darkness outside of you, namely the plethora of
      predatory forces in human and nonhuman forms as well as the external
      consequences of poor choices made over the years, will inevitably give you a
      rude awakening from denial. In other words, when wishful thinking and denial
      is chosen over awareness and responsibility, things catch up with you sooner
      or later. For further discussion on YCYOR, please see my article True
      Reality Creation
      Needless to say, getting severely burned by wishful positive thinking or
      seeing the ignorance and hypocrisy it induces in others can make you want to
      run the other way. But you can run away so reactively that you slide right
      into the opposite trap, which is extreme negativity and combative dualism.
      For instance, if YCYOR does not work out for you, it is easy to get bitter
      and throw the baby out with the bathwater, rejecting “positive thinking” as
      a form of weakness and denial when, in truth, the problem was that the
      positive attitude was not accompanied by balanced awareness. So instead of
      positivity combined with awareness, you might choose awareness at the
      expense of positivity. The problem is that while awareness prepares you to
      deal with negative phenomena, a negative attitude actually increases the
      occurrence and severity of such phenomena. It’s like becoming aware that a
      pipe has burst and fighting to patch it without first turning off the water
      valve.
      To clarify, dualism is the belief in two things irreconcilably divided,
      such as “good vs evil” or “spirit vs matter”, while what I call combative
      dualism is acknowledging there is darkness but getting psychotically zealous
      about destroying it to the point of becoming increasingly like it. This
      extreme dualism is rooted in ego seeking retribution for perceived
      injustices but using ego-based means of achieving that retribution. Those
      steeped in this mindset boast about being realists while justifying their
      stance by scoffing at more subjective alternatives like the New Age
      paradigm. Of course, they are thinking in binary terms because they are not
      aware, or unwilling to acknowledge, a third and more holistic perspective.
      They see only what is false in one half-truth, true in another half-truth,
      and push the latter as vastly superior to the first when both are equally
      defective.
      An interesting thing happens to those who have a fear-based preoccupation
      with dark influences in their lives. They start shadow-boxing a variety of
      phenomena that they themselves are responsible for creating or drawing in.
      What kind of phenomena? Depends on their belief system, but here I mean
      something like a massive increase in suspicious characters following them in
      public, black helicopter harassment, signs of tampering and monitoring,
      constant tormenting by dark astral and etheric entities, ongoing violent
      alien abductions, and so on. These things may have their own independent
      existence, but they are drawn in and enabled by skewed awareness and
      negative attitude, especially – and this is important – when one mistakes
      these “attacks” as necessary confirmation that one is on the right track,
      that one has irritated the dark forces by throwing a wrench in their works.
      This mistaken belief only serves to further reinforce what has already
      become a turbulent path in
      life.
      Negative attitudes come with a lowered soul frequency, and a lowered
      frequency induces more frequent misperceptions and greater tangibility of
      interactions with negative entities. So the fear and combativeness actually
      attract more things to fear and fight than necessary. Contrary to YCYOR,
      losing the negative attitude is not enough to solve the problem since even
      if you don’t attract something, that something can still volitionally
      attract itself to you, so that is where awareness comes in to mentally block
      or physically nip such problems in the bud.
      When confronted by the fact that dark forces exist and are operative in
      your life and the world, something innocent within you dies. But that
      innocence is just naivete that had to go sooner or later, so good riddance.
      Still, something like the five-stages of grief can take place: denial
      (“Nope, not real.”), fear (“Oh my god!”), anger (“Sons of bitches!”),
      acceptance (“Nothing I can do about it…”), understanding (“Aha, now I see
      the bigger picture”). New Age wishful thinking is located in the first
      stage. Combative dualism is stuck at the fear and anger stages, where
      awareness of the problem is unaccompanied by higher understanding, a more
      balanced attitude, or awareness of the positive side of reality. Its center
      of gravity is the ego, and the ego’s idea of positive is whatever strokes,
      soothes, and feeds it.
      Only through comprehensive awareness combined with a balanced attitude of
      positivity does the center of balance shift towards the heart of the soul,
      and only then through responsibility in your actions does the circuit
      finally complete and life turns around for the better. There is a difference
      between combative dualism and balanced dualism. I’m all for dualism, since
      the very existence of freewill must allow for the choice to respect or
      reject Creation and that necessarily establishes the positive and negative
      halves of the spiritual evolutionary ladder. The key is to be aware of both
      halves of the duality and how each fits into the greater whole. There is
      unity in the essence of duality, and duality in the expression of unity.
      Understanding this greater context gives you the needed perspicacity and
      wisdom to effectively deal with problems without loosing your spiritual
      footing.
      With increased awareness, attitude adjustment, and some introspection
      those caught in the trap of negative and combative dualism can pull
      themselves out of it. Here are some suggestions for attaining this.

      Replace emotional paranoia and cocky combativeness with humility, humor,
      and nonchalance. Yes negative forces exist and have an interest in
      challenging your spiritual progress, but ego / fear / obsession are to them
      what blood is to a shark. Laugh off their scare tactics and they realize
      their investment in screwing with you isn’t paying off. Treat the threat as
      you would the danger of being run over when crossing a road – don’t get
      bug-eyed and madly dash across or you might trip and indeed get run over, or
      hop around the street shouting and flipping off traffic or you might get
      shot, just calmly look both ways and cross…

      Learn to use your intent combined with positive emotion to manifest
      protection and other beneficial things. Acknowledge and nurture the
      spiritual power and confidence within you rather than depending solely on
      external gimmicks and gadgets. And if you try any sort of manifesting or
      prayer routine, keep in mind it’s not the content of that routine so much as
      the deep-seated attitude behind it that produces results. If you pray for
      being saved by a higher power, yet maintain a deep-seated attitude of
      victimization and disempowerment, then the latter is what you’ll manifest.

      Become aware of your emotional issues like egotism, pissiness, victimhood,
      vengefulness, self-importance, and insecurities instead of denying and
      suppressing them. Denial allows them to fester and build in pressure until
      they explode and cause you to react irrationally and emotionally. Denial
      also allows them to secretly form the foundation of your belief system,
      displacing what should instead be a pure interest in the pursuit of truth.
      When belief is tied to ego-based identity, anyone challenging that belief
      will be perceived by the ego as an attack upon its own existence, and the
      response can be quite nasty. Become aware of these issues and then you can
      deal with them.

      Stop thinking that getting attention from dark forces suggests they are
      taking revenge for something good you have done, that this means you are
      necessarily on the right path. No, the more you get off track the more
      easily they can toy with you, and the more your reality becomes abrasive as
      a feedback mechanism warning you off having gone astray. If you really are a
      threat, these forces won’t play around with flashy theatrics – they will go
      for the kill, either by trying to eliminate you through accident or illness,
      or sneaking through the backdoor of your mind and programming you to destroy
      yourself and everything you have worked for without you realizing it. I know
      this from experience.

      Sharpen your critical thinking skills, become better at spotting logical
      fallacies and subjectivity. Also practice reading the vibes of people for
      any signs of them being “off” — vibe should feel like that of a used car
      salesman who knows he’s selling you a lemon, smooth but off. Becoming aware
      of deception immunizes you and leaves you open to explore more fruitful
      avenues.

      Broaden your research into new subjects. If someone is labeled a
      disinformation agent, check out his or her material for yourself and come up
      with several reasons why that accusation is true or false. Hunt down quality
      sources that give you new insights and empower you with new chunks of
      knowledge.

      Without sacrificing awareness of how dark forces operate and what their
      influence has been on you and the world around you, adjust your attitude to
      be more constructive, hopeful, and good-natured. Practice seeing the beauty
      in people and things. Put more of your energy into seeding and growing
      something that makes you spiritually fulfilled — you are not combatting dark
      forces directly so much as starving them by creating a better alternative.
      The purpose of all this is mainly to get your vibes back up so that you’re
      no longer neck-deep in shark-infested waters. (see article: Realm Dynamics).
      Even if conditions are shitty, make a conscious choice to stay lucid and
      emotionally above water instead of drowning in negativity and self-loathing.
      Keep a check on your thoughts and emotions, as what goes on within does
      correlate loosely with what goes on outside.
      In An Outline of Esoteric Science Rudolf Steiner wrote:
      An additional way of training our thinking and feeling is by acquiring a
      quality we can call “positivity.” There is a beautiful legend that tells of
      Christ Jesus and several other people walking past a dead dog. The others
      all turned away from the ugly sight, but Christ Jesus spoke admiringly of
      the animal’s beautiful teeth. We can practice maintaining the soul-attitude
      toward the world that this legend exemplifies. The erroneous, the bad, and
      the ugly must not prevent the soul from finding the true, the good, and the
      beautiful wherever they are present. We must not confuse positivity with
      being artificially uncritical or arbitrarily closing our eyes [YCYOR] to
      things that are bad, false, or inferior. It is possible to admire a dead
      animal’s “beautiful teeth” and still see the decaying corpse; the corpse
      does not prevent us from seeing the beautiful teeth. We cannot consider bad
      things good and false things true, but we can reach the point where the bad
      does not prevent
      us from seeing the good and errors do not keep us from seeing the truth.
