Arrogance and pride...
Arrogance is duality in itself.
on one hand: I already know. I know. I am beyond that.
on the other hand: OMG, I am so stupid. I make so many mistakes. I better slow down, and not be so sure.
What "it" says it knows? Everything. It knows if it is worth it to listen. It knows if it can. It knows the future, the past, what it means, what it doesn't mean, what it's about, what is important and what isn't.
All the background stuff... the stuff that is largely invisible.
And what it says "I am so stupid" about? Everything else... never actually examining the fabric of the background... the context, the water you swim in.
So no wonder humanity is approaching the cliff...
Everybody and their sister feels that they have access to divinity, and magic, and superhuman, and healing, and all-knowledge.
That is the arrogance.
And everybody and their sister feel that in the face of lives of sham, mistakes, no results, and bad feelings.
Everybody has moments of brilliance. And everybody knows, on some level, that building a life on that is a lie, a pretense... but they can't resist.
Because feeling superior is a must... An imperative... This imperative is coming from, of course, the selfish gene.
Every comparison comes from the selfish gene.
I know people who connected at one time, seconds at a time, maybe even raised their vibration a substantial amount, but the moment it gave them a right to feel superior, they lost it all.
I know people who offer energy healing. Because they can't connect to Source, to the Light, to the Force, they connect to nothing, or to the Dark Side... and spread negative energy.
I know teachers, gurus, leaders who live a sham of a life, just like you, because they base their "vocation" on moments of brilliance, and lies.
I have people who leave me testimonials saying, with certainty, what made a difference. But they don't know... do they?
I, myself, was saying things that I was sure about, but they were not the whole truth...
Specifically about the water.
For years I said: energize your water for an hour...
I had no idea why energized water would make a difference in how you feel. No clue.
Until a few months ago I realized that it is coherence that we are talking about... that unless the water is fully coherent, the cells won't let it enter... They rather die.
But as soon as I started to do that myself, miracles started to happen.
One is becoming someone who deals with 90 degree weather as if it were nothing. No air conditioning, no fans, an occasional dip of the head into cold water... and life is wonderful...
I don't sweat. Can't sweat. But now I don't have to... My cells are almost fully hydrated.
Another, also a summer issue: my legs used to be so swollen, I would not be able to recognize myself, and the skin used to become brittle... ready to break.
This summer: none of it. No swelling at all.
The testimonial writer, similar physical issues, wrote that the same thing happened to her "because of the Big Bundle... my secret weapon." I didn't have the heart to tell her that it was the energized water... not the Big Bundle.
Moments of brilliance are sufficient to think you a genius, but not sufficient to actually be high vibration enough to do the things high vibration people can do.
But the biggest price you pay for this arrogance duality is that you actually never grow.
Because the simple act of committing to growth flies in the face of your already always arrogance... And makes you wrong.
But being wrong is a no-no for the ego... so you won't ever want to go there.
You see, when I declared myself stupid, I did something spiritually extraordinary: I gave up accepting and even tolerating the ego's dominance over myself and my life.
I learned to not be so sure... I learned to look twice to make sure I see what I think I see... I learned that public self-correction is good for the soul... Public authenticity: telling the truth about my inauthenticity is going to keep me straight.
So with that bold and unprecedented act I put myself in the position to grow and become an expanding human being.
Will you follow me there?
You will need to break with ego's dominion... or you won't.
I hate to break it to you...
