The Truth About Self-Deception

THE TRUTH ABOUT SELF-DECEPTION. The difficulty with self-deception is that even if we know we are deluding ourselves it is incredibly hard to accept because the cause of much of our delusions got their start by believing in something that had been passed on to us by people we love and/or trusted–these people wear many hats. And it’s not that they all did this deliberately, but it shows how deep self-deception goes and how it can easily morph into delusion.

Once we’ve accepted something as an absolute truth it creates a blockage that makes it extremely difficult to overcome and by that I mean, it does not allow for balance in your life. Instead of seeing that there is Strength in compromise, you may feel a nagging incompatibility due to a lack of Temperance–an imbalance resulting from expecting everyone to see things your way.
People who self-deceive, will undoubtedly at some point ask, “Why won’t this work? Why won’t anyone listen and why does this shit keep happening to me?” And the answer is because you refuse to understand that your extreme or stubborn way of thinking cannot exist without its polar opposite and that if you’re looking for real love or respect, that can only come when you consciously allow conditioned beliefs to air out and consider the possibility that there is more than one truth.

The Self-Imposed Ties that Bind

Last night I had a dream in which someone that I used to consider a friend came at me with a large pair of scissors. At first I saw the symbolism as a threat to my safety, but quickly realized that it was more about projection and a message relating to binding.

In life, the person in my dream is loud, ‘justice’ oriented and unwavering in his beliefs of what he considers virtuous. His politics and expression are of the dark variety that projects his own guilt and conditioning onto others as if everyone around him suffers from deep seated bigotry and hatred. He, and many like him, literally want people to be divided, but their programming tells them it’s something else. He is bound by his conditioned beliefs and gets confirmation that he is virtuous from others who are under the same spell — and it is a spell– a spell that is designed to invert reality. I can go on about this and I suggest you do your own research into how tech, the media, movies, etc. controls our thinking, but I want to make my point as it relates to binding.

Is your bondage self-imposed?

The scissors in my dream represented the act of cutting free from what binds us and it brought to mind the image of the VIII Swords. This image can represent our inability to grasp our influences and how they often negatively effect us and keep us enslaved. Upon waking, I delved further into this dream message to get a deeper understanding.

As long as we cling to unfound beliefs, go along for the ride with like-minded ‘thinkers’, we can never escape the real pain and turmoil which lies within. Our true anger and pain is not what we choose to see in others, that only functions to deny our spiritual growth and prevents us from understanding something much greater than ourselves. What we project onto others merely divides us and is an insidious distraction from gaining sweet, soul singing knowledge that would destroy all doubt and the imagined hate that some of us choose to think effects every waking moment of our lives.

By working towards creating equilibrium, we can begin to address and solve the things in life that do not serve us. The Temperance card reminds us that a balance of heart and mind will help us to intelligently forge ahead without having to talk over others when our paradigms are at risk. Do we allow our emotions to go haywire, preventing us from achieving equilibrium? Do they blind us to a greater truth and encourage a rage that is disguised as strength, when it is actually fear? Ask yourself how you might be binding yourself from growth or limiting your scope. And are you willingly falling under the spell of a force whose aim is to literally suppress your spirit?

We need to understand when we are being manipulated and when we willingly bind ourselves to certain beliefs and thinking. True freedom will not take place until this is something we become aware of. And like the woman in VIII of Swords card, it may just be a matter of backing up, cutting the cords and using your mind and reason as suggested by Temperance to get closer to what is true.

Are You Missing Out on Valuable Life Lessons?

Have you noticed that so many people think they know everything there is to know about life without having had the real experience or much to base their opinions on? Yeah..it is pretty bad. They increasingly demand that others live according to what they think is right and condemn those who think outside of their horribly limited paradigms, their weakened emotions impel them to project a fascistic behavior onto others in the name of ‘fairness’, but mostly it’s just repeated words they’ve heard in institutations of conditioning and 4am talking points established within the mainstream mockingbird media.

As annoying as these people are, I feel bad for them and often wonder what I can do to broaden their perspective that they can see the proverbial forrest for the trees. I’m still wondering. But with regard to the tarot, they are missing out on what The World card can teach them. The World card is the last in the series of the Major Arcana and represents an enlightened consciousness and the symbolic end down a path of learning and understanding.

When we are presented with this card, it often asks us to determine whether or not we’ve learned lessons while we’ve been on our individual paths. Have we learned from our mistakes? Are we allowing the spark within us to teach us things that the media will always get wrong? Have we built up our intuition or have we just gone along with whatever we’ve been forced fed? The World card demands that the querant look within himself to answer these questions. If we don’t work from within, the joys offered by this card can never be felt or realized, we will continue on the Fool’s Path repeating negative patterns and ultimately falling head first into the abyss.

The True Way To Accessing Your Natural Ability and Potential

Last night before I turned out my light, I contemplated the idea of potential and natural ability. What is it that drives us? What are the things that we gravitate to that are inspired by our own desires and not of the influences forced upon us? How do we truly flourish when we feel others should come before us? Or if we take credit for something we didn’t actually do or express a thought that didn’t come from our own mind?

How DO we access our true potential without giving in to pressures or taking an easy way out to obtain limited or imagined success? By this I mean, when we limit our potential by following a dream that is not our own or when we go along with ‘the plan’ because we don’t want to rock the boat–that is, when we function only as a contributor to someone else’s potential and success and not our own. It may feel good to be part of the ‘team’, but as individual creators it does not serve us.

With these thoughts in mind, I did a reading to gain more clarity and answers for people who may be struggling with this issue. Firstly, we need to understand ourselves and know precisely what it is we desire to accomplish. What actions need to be taken to reach our full potential?

The cards offered a remarkable response.

DSC03793

To access our natural ability and harness our true potential, we need to think like The Hanged Man.

The Hanged Man tells us that there is an inner peace, serenity and happiness in being misunderstood. He is content in knowing that he is furthering his own agenda and spiritual growth by following what his heart tells him.

The Hanged Man is not distressed by how others perceive him. Though he may be ridiculed, shunned, shamed and ostricized, he does not allow himself to be swayed or pressured out of his own beliefs. He is okay being the butt of a joke because he knows he is doing what is right for himself whether others understand him or not.

The Hanged Man’s peace comes from being true, sincere and authentic.

Once we can appreciate the serenity that comes with sometimes being misunderstood, wisdom will come from the experience that is obtained by cutting our cords of attachment to things that no longer serve us.

Temperance is about balancing what is in our hearts and our minds.  We can obtain equilibrium by giving to others, but we need to give to ourselves as well to maintain balance.

DSC03792

Most telling about this reading is the appearance of the three cards above. They are the only three cards in the entire deck that have someone turned fully around and walking away. These three are in step and actively leaving the scene.

If we are to allow our nature to blossom and tap into our full potential, we must not allow the the words of others to stop us. We can’t always expect others to help us in our endeavors and we can’t expect even loved ones to side with us.

DSC03791We need to walk away from people and situations that are not in alignment with our desires. We have to know that the extra work, dissenting voices and even times of loneliness are all contributing to what is best for us. It gives us strength, fortitude and eventually, the calm of The Hanged Man.

And in the end, we don’t even need to say “I told you so.” because people will know who was correct all along.

Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery

ENSLAVE

Modern day slavery exists and our captors care nothing of our race, gender, social or economic background. They are unmoved and non-biased. This is something I think about quite a bit and it doesn’t seem like one day can go by when I feel the screws tightening.

DSC03574 (1)Today in came in the form of an article about St. Louis University installing surveillance devices, 2,300 of them, into every dorm room for this coming semester. The devices, are of course marketed as ‘assistance’ tools that answer questions about the campus. Just like everything that is bad for us, we accept it because they’re ‘cool’ or we’re programmed into believing we ‘need’ them and they’ll ‘protect’ us. Eventually we don’t even notice they’re there because we never said “No.”.

These devices, naturally, are supplied by Am_zon and are Al_xa-enabled Ec_o Dots.  They claim that ‘no personal data is stored’, but they’ve had problems with these devices storing and using the data for advertising purposes in the past. And didn’t we just recently watch as Mark Zuckerberg purgered himself in front of the Senate’s Commerce and Judiciary committees–or at the very least deny things he was fully aware of?

zuck-data

I don’t like to bring up these kind of things, but this is what is being put in place to destroy our souls and take us further from understanding our purpose. It atrophies our minds and gives us no reason to think for ourselves. This is the enslavement that so many of us accept as normal or choose to believe that it doesn’t affect us.

Break the chains, disconnect from your devices, unplug, stop the streaming programming…or at least start paying attention to how much you rely on technology to do the thinking for you. Save your temple. Refuse to be the product.

Suicidal Thoughts: Looking At Our Pain With Fresh Eyes

At the beginning of the year I made a prediction that I did not want to come true, but in the intervening months I saw one confirmation after the next that I was not off the mark. I predicted that there would be a major increase in suicides.

My prediction may have been partly intuitive and partly based on an awareness of a general decline in happiness and a compulsion for some to embrace low frequency behaviors and ideology. The combination of low karmic energy and repetitive programming of negativity could not end well, thus my prediction of suicide.

Today I was reminded of an acquaintance who killed himself last year. I thought of all that he had going for him and what he had to offer the world and it got me to thinking again of the many people who feel as if suicide is the answer to seemingly insurmountable problems.

In the past I have suffered from the darkest of depressions and I know the feelings attached to this type of pain.  I also know that what we keep at the forefront of our minds will express itself in our outward reality. Our pain does not have to be there.

I understand that people have different reasons for their thoughts and our experiences are radically different, but I felt compelled to do a reading that might shed some light on why some of us are thinking the way we are and what we can do to elevate ourselves from these thoughts.

If you have any questions about the reading below, please feel free to leave a question in the comment section.  If you are having suicidal thoughts, please contact someone qualified to talk with you more about it.

THE READING:

DSC03438

While I was shuffling the cards I got the impression that LOVE would be a major factor in why people harm themselves.  The cards did reveal elements of love and they are strongly present, but I was surprised to be shown that the predominant factor for self-harm revolve around the superficial.

There is a feeling associated with living that could be described as ‘half empty’ and leaning toward finding what doesn’t work as opposed to what is already working.

There is a certain amount of comparisons being made in what others have and accomplished and what is desired and unfulfilled in those currently struggling with happiness.

Happiness, success and legitimacy is gauged by the amount of ‘things’ and money one has to show for themselves.  There is almost a complete lack of thought behind these conclusions and emotions are being built up over things that have no shelf life or lasting significance.

DSC03440

There is an unwillingness to see the importance of mistakes and the work involved in reaching greater heights. Focus lingers on low energy attempts at success that lead to failure and increased focus on the successes of others which lead to feelings of unfairness.

Predominant thoughts surrounding lack permeate the reading.  The feelings of perceived fairness in life and the distribution of love and money appear to be dominant.

fool

Takeaway:
Don’t be blinded by the glittering prizes of the mundane world that speak only of superficiality. They don’t last.

Embracing the superficial is turning your back on your authenticity, which in turn will not lead to love or happiness. It will attract inauthentic people and temporary friendships.

Difficult, sometimes painful work is necessary to succeed. Without acknowledging your mistakes as steps closer to your desires, you will always remain the Fool.

The Fool is unconcerned, not because he is an actual ‘fool’, but he moves through life willing to learn from the pitfalls he encounters. He approaches life with positivity.  If he doesn’t learn valuable lessons put before him, the second time around he may actually step off the edge of the cliff–willingly or because he just never paid attention.
