The limitations of “feel-good spirituality”
The internet has been completely flooded with all kinds and types of spirituality—all kinds of channelers, gurus, and would-be messengers who parade their wares before the public. Higher awareness does in no way discourage freedom of speech, freedom of expression. Yet it is a deliberate strategy of the false hierarchy on this planet to flood the internet with spiritual teachings, many of which are either based on black-and-white thinking or grey thinking.
There are, of course, a variety of them out there that are, like the fundamentalist Christians, based on black-and white-thinking. They are often the doomsday prophets or the conspiracy theorists that say that there is this doom and gloom hanging over humankind, this sword of Damocles ready to drop upon you and wipe out the world or at least unleash calamities of every kind. If you look at what is out there of these false prophets, you will quickly go into a state of having to numb yourself, for you cannot emotionally deal with this.
What do many people do? They go into the opposite extreme, the opposite polarity of grey thinking, which is what one might call “feel-good spirituality.” Everything is good, everything is wonderful, and the earth is in this upward spiral and shifting into the 5th dimension because there is this benevolent force – whether it is called angelic beings or space brothers or whatever you have – and these cosmic beings are releasing these wonderful energies that are automatically sweeping the earth into a new dimension or golden age.
All you have to do as a spiritual person is go about your business and be kind and positive to everybody. You do not need to study any difficult topics, you do not need to be diligent in practicing particular techniques because everything is wonderful if you just relax and flow with this wonderful love. This form of spirituality, “feel-good spirituality,” is somewhat of a delay factor to the plans of higher awareness. You may look at it and say: “Well, what can be harmful about it? These people are being positive.” They are seeking to create positive vibrations, and invoke positive energy in order to counteract the accumulated negative energy produced by humankind.
Here is the subtle distinction. It would be easy to go into a black-and-white mindset and say that this form of spirituality is all false and has no positive impact whatsoever because it is coming from the false hierarchy, or it is based on illusions. The reality is, of course that things are never black and white. There are many people in this new spiritual movement who are having a positive impact on planet earth. If you keep yourself in a kind, positive, and loving state of mind, you will have a positive impact, as opposed to people who are in a negative, fear-based, or anger-based state of mind.
This is not saying that the people who are engaged in this feel-good spirituality are not having a positive influence on the planet. Some will therefore say: “Well, if that is the case, just leave us alone then and let us feel the way we want to feel.” Certainly, given free will, higher awareness will leave alone all those who are not open to its message. Yet, it is valid to state in the physical that feel-good spirituality is delaying the progress of this planet even though it is having a positive impact on this planet. If you are dragging your car by a rope, the car is still moving forwards but not nearly as quickly as if you got into the car, turned on the engine, put it in gear, and stepped on the accelerator. Your car is moving forward if you are dragging it, but certainly not with the speed that is its true potential. So it is with this broad, New Age, feel-good movement.
How the manipulators impede spiritual progress
The manipulators on this planet know, at least the more experienced of them that they cannot forever delay the forward movement of humankind. They are satisfied with delaying it as much as possible. In order to do this, they have a three-fold strategy. One can roughly divide the population into the top 10%, the bottom 10%, and the 80% in the middle. The false manipulators have divisions, departments that are working with the bottom 10%, and they are seeking to create as much havoc and chaos as possible. They are seeking to create as much control as possible.
Then they have departments that are working with the 80% in the middle, and they are seeking to put the 80% in a state of inertia where they do not want to change, they just want to live the good material life. Then, they have departments that are working with the top 10%, and although they are quite sophisticated, one of their main departments is certainly the one that seeks to promote this feel-good spirituality. This causes so many spiritual people to go into a state of mind where they are making progress, and they are making a positive contribution, but not to their full potential. Thus, not only is the planet not progressing as quickly as it could, but in many areas, it is not actually progressing faster than the bottom 10% are pulling back on the forward movement of humankind.
You may be doing something that is positive, but if someone else somewhere is doing something that is negative, it can counteract what you are doing. If they are more diligent or effective in generating negative energy than you are in generating positive energy, then the net result for the planet is not a gain. If you are sitting there feeling holier-than-thou because of your positive attitude and your sense that “It’s all good,” then you are really deluding yourself because you are not doing what you came here to do.
The top 10% are the only ones who have the potential to be open to this message. They have the potential but so many of them are not fulfilling their highest potential. They have been lulled into the all-is-good attitude where they think it is good enough to walk slowly rather than running towards the goal. Yet all of the people in the top 10% took embodiment specifically to help raise the collective consciousness and bring planet earth into the Age of Higher Awareness. So do you want to fulfill that potential or do you wan to feel good?
Science and Spirituality Beyond Boundaries
The forces that seek to limit this planet, that seek to control human beings, are always using anything that comes up in society. They have, of course, used science, the knowledge about DNA and the knowledge about evolution, to try to say that you cannot escape being, essentially, an animal. Higher awareness knows you are not essentially an animal; you are essentially a spiritual being in an animal body. The animal body is subject to your mind—when you take command of your mind.
This is an age where the boundaries that have not already been questioned will be questioned. This is because because millions of people around the world (from many different fields) are tuning in to higher awareness and to the ideas it is bringing forth. Higher awareness is not bringing these ideas forth through one particular messenger, through one particular organization or philosophy. It is bringing them forth through all minds that are receptive to receiving some new idea. This, of course, applies to many scientists. It applies to people from all spiritual and religious traditions. Certainly, the traditions of the East and their mindfulness, yoga and other practices that have come to the West, have made a major contribution to the forward progression of the collective consciousness.
It is very important that science becomes incorporated and that we break down the traditional barrier between science and religion that is one of the major things that actually limits new ideas, that closes people’s minds to new ideas. Therefore, there is a need for people who will use the latest discoveries of science and try to combine them with spiritual traditions.
Certainly, realizing that you can reprogram your DNA, that you can reprogram the deepest mind patterns, is an important step forward for humankind. Reprogramming your neurological patterns and your DNA is not actually a new invention. You are simply describing an age-old process in scientific terms. Traditionally, this process has been called the spiritual path, the path to higher awareness. You are, when you are serious about the spiritual path, reprogramming every aspect of your physical, emotional, mental and identity bodies. It is very exciting when science or other fields make progress so higher awareness can bring forth ideas that make it easier for people to grasp and actually believe that this is possible.
You, who are serious about the spiritual path, need to be aware that there are no quick-fixes here. It is so common in this day and age, where time has become so short, to think that there must be an easy way out. There must be some quick technique so that you can solve the problem very quickly and get on with your busy life. Those who are serious about the spiritual path, need to realize that it isn’t a matter of finding a quick fix.
There comes a point on the spiritual path where it is OK for you to be looking for a quick way out. But there also comes that point where you need to step up and realize that if you really want results on the spiritual path, it cannot be done by maintaining the same lifestyle as most people have in this material age. It is not so much a matter of changing your outer habits, but of changing the way you think and look at yourself. You cannot artificially or superficially reprogram your DNA or your deepest brain patterns. It is something that requires a very deep and very committed shift in consciousness.
