Serialised book: “The Subtle Dance” – 16th (and final) instalment

Epilogue

numérisation0058If you are on a journey from honest rationalism to freedom and spirituality, I hope this book has provided you with enough material to bolster your confidence in your own intuition.

Deep down you’ve always felt that something was shaky and shallow in society’s mainstream narrative. Reality is far more subtle that what we’re told by the system. Yet the system impresses because it plays on fear and the whims of ego. It has a firm grip on education, science, justice… It has authority. It is Authority. But only in the thin layer of reality that we perceive through the distorted lenses of the belief system downloaded in our minds.

Evidence of the subtle side of reality is massive and beyond doubt. Part I outlined a few aspects of this mountain of evidence. I would encourage you to conduct your own research, and test, compare and verify as much as possible by yourself.

Present developments on the planet are accelerating beyond anything anyone could have imagined a few decades ago. Part II shed light on a few historical trends and focused on the global crisis and the role of the elite in nurturing the crisis and manipulating events and information to create confusion, anxiety and ultimately total subservience out of fear.

Recognising all this, the crucial question left for the ex rationalist is “what is the purpose of my life in this mess and how can I navigate through it all to fulfil my life mission?” Part III sought to convey the potentially luminous simplicity of our relationship with “Presence”, that silent little voice, always present, always wise. This relationship is dynamic and beautiful; it’s a dance, a clever dance. Every step is new, every step is an adventure, a discovery. Some steps can be hard, even seemingly cruel. But as one learns to dance and to understand how Presence guides us, it becomes obvious that all joys and hardships alike are guiding messages.

The ultimate challenge is to find the courage to always follow Presence’s silent recommendations, even when our intellect fails to grasp their rationale. This is true for the smallest everyday things and for the most crucial choices in life. This is true for purely personal matters, such as one’s own physical health, and is also true for our participation in the collective destiny of humans and other creatures on the planet.

Part III. Follow your soul

Out of slavery

Only continual interaction with the gentle Presence inside us is of real help in today’s world. Although most people sense that something is profoundly wrong with the all pervasive fear and stubborn egotism that dominate society, they can’t put their finger on the root of the problem and have no idea of how things could be improved. As a matter of fact we’re all subjected to intensive mind control designed to maintain us in a state of confusion and frightened bewilderment. The rat race seems an inescapable fact of life and continual competition in every field is routinely presented as the very dynamics of existence, whereas in reality it is a pathetic dead end struggle between bruised little egos.

The core difficulty is that there does not seem to be any credible alternative to that pointless rat race. At least not as long we remain trapped in the mindset forced on us by the occult powers running the show in “this world”. These have thoroughly brainwashed us with themes of fear, judgement, guilt, hatred, separation, hierarchy, and the absurdly restrictive belief that what we see is all there is. Regaining our freedom requires giving up these ideas and realising that society’s dominant elite is possessed by misguided spiritual entities.

Events on the planet are presently so shocking that it looks as if the elite had given up any real pretence to be acting for the common good. The masks are down. And yet so many people still refuse to see the obvious. Because they are in fear and totally absorbed by the survival game. Fear is instilled by a comprehensive system of indoctrination involving virtually every mainstream institution and relayed down society’s hierarchical lines by lots of different people, many of then naively sincere. There lies a big challenge: to have to question practically everything we’ve been told, even by our parents, teachers, family doctor and other well meaning individuals who genuinely thought what they told us was true and in our best interest to know. Their intent was good, but they were themselves trapped in the powerful belief system created to control humanity. A cycle of mind control which has repeated itself over and over for generations.

Today, we have a chance to break the cycle, because we can see what goes on at the global level, which previous generations couldn’t. Subtle vibrational changes are taking place, which sensitive folks can feel quite distinctly. The controlling forces know that their power is under threat and they do all they can to create more panic, agitation and distractions than ever before in order to keep everyone in the mental prison. This is quite evident from all the senseless military activity intensifying around the globe, from the repeated alerts about supposedly deadly viruses and unprecedented epidemics, from the engineered economic and migration crises, all whipped up at nauseam by the media which at the same time devote a vast amount of attention to trivialities like sport competitions and celebrity shows interspersed with silly adverts.

The very excesses of this torrent of manipulation and trivia are giving the plot away. A dying monster is spitting fire in desperation. We can see it all so clearly. Now how do we navigate through that extraordinary environment? Our ultimate personal guide is Presence. And the way to signal to Presence that we are ready to follow its guidance is by aligning with unconditional integrity, love, compassion and forgiveness for all, including ourselves. When we say “all”, this means more than all humans, it means all creatures: plants, water, stones, animals, and invisible entities of any kind. This is natural spirituality, inclusive and holistic. It’s a trusting embrace of the universe.

In a way natural spirituality is extremely simple, frighteningly simple. Too simple, at first, to be readily accepted by our reasoning intellect. The latter is clever at raising possible objections. You’re not going to trust science any more? Are you rejecting the religion of your fathers? You know that “real life” is a hard struggle, don’t you? You’re not going to start daydreaming about hairy fairy stuff, are you? … etc., etc. Before clinging back to the fears and limitations of your panicky intellect, ask yourself if your intellect, or anybody’s intellect, is capable of making coherent sense of what goes on in the world, and of conceiving “solutions”, collective or personal. If you are lucid and honest, you have to admit that the intellect can’t do it, because it is a very limited tool that won’t bring you very far at all.

And if, by contrast, you think back of the synchronicities and subtle messages you received at different points in your life, you have to admit that the power of Presence is much greater than that of the intellect. This is experiential evidence. Ultimately it is the only evidence at our disposal to choose our path. Either the path of materialistic and dogmatic beliefs or the path of natural spirituality with Presence guiding every aspect of our life.

At this juncture, words are too narrow and limiting to convey the message. Only in your personal interaction with Presence can you find the energy and enlightenment to move forward. There are of course practical things you can do to facilitate spiritual progress. Like meditating, going in the fresh air and exercising, interacting with animals and plants, eating healthy non industrial food, relying on alternative forms of healing, reducing the time spent using electronic gadgets…etc. These are very good habits, but at the end of the day they are not the essential.

The essential is the ability to hear the inner little voice of Presence and the courage to follow its advice even when your intellect can’t immediately figure out the rationale for that advice. Whenever you have that courage you invariably find out that the rationale for what Presence suggested always appears at some stage. The key is that Presence knows. Presence is not hindered by the barrier of time. Presence is aware of the full spectrum of potentialities. He/she knows that if you do this or that the consequences will be a or b. On that basis it advises you and then leaves you free to follow the advice or to ignore it.

The problem of most people is that they can’t hear Presence’s little voice because their mind is too distracted by all the noise from society amplified by their ego. In the previous chapter we have seen techniques to keep the ego under control so as to regain the ability to hear the inner little voice. Say you have acquired that ability. That’s marvellous. But then the choice is yours: either following the advice as it is, even if you can’t see its rational justification, or letting your intellect take over, reason, speculate and lead you on a different path. Anyone brought up in the Western way of thinking will be extremely tempted to trust his intellect rather than Presence’s little voice. At that point you have to gather the courage to resist the sirens of the intellect and trust Presence totally.

A practical way to learn to do this is to experiment first with little things. Here is an example I have experienced myself recently. While cleaning up our garage which is full of stuff, I tore a panel of hard cardboard into pieces and was about to throw them all in the paper and cardboard bin when I felt the little voice advising me very strongly to keep three pieces of a certain size. Why on earth would Presence interfere with such a mundane activity as throwing away pieces of cardboard? Anyway I followed this incomprehensible advice. Within minutes it turned out that the three pieces I had kept fitted perfectly at the bottom of an old wooden fruit box which I was very glad to be able to use to keep half used pots of paints, bushes and other stuff.

You may wonder why Presence gets involved into such unimportant matters. The thing is that Presence is queen to help us with little as well as with more important aspects of our life. In fact, unlike the earth bound intellect, eternal Presence isn’t obsessed with distinctions and separations: when does something begin to be “important”? The only thing that matters is whether we are on the path of our mission in life which can be anything that facilitates our spiritual progress towards complete alignment with unconditional love. All the rest is detail for which we can simply trust Presence.

But you don’t have to believe me. Experiment by yourself. Just be attentive to the next messages of your own Presence, follow them if they don’t seem too risky and see what happens. Once you will have experimented a few times with little things and seen by yourself how it works, you will have the confidence to trust Presence for matters that, in your eyes, seem more important.

You might think that this business of Presence sounds quite promising at an individual level but wonder how it could ever help solve the immense and apparently intractable problems of mankind. And therefore doubt that it could seriously help your children and grand children have a decent life in an increasingly chaotic society and degraded environment. That is where trust in your inner Presence takes on a truly universal dimension. When you become free from the mind control imposed on society by occult entities through the ego’s of a corrupt elite, you radiate positive subtle energy in the universe, and when enough of us become free and begin to generate such positive subtle energy, a critical mass is reached and the whole game of visible “reality” is changed at a fundamental level.

Here again you don’t have to believe me. Observe by yourself what goes on in the world. Observe your own reactions, and how they change once you start following your own Presence’s flow of suggestions and guidance.

Part III. Follow your soul

Silencing ego and unhelpful entities

The exact nature of our ego and of entities attached to it is beyond rational comprehension. And so is the reason why they continually interfere with our lives. But in the end that’s not so important. Our practical experience is that they do interfere, and we have to find practical ways to deal with them. Dogmatic religion tends to view the ego as sinful and entities interfering with us as evil and malign. To free a person possessed by dark entities the conventional technique used by religious authorities is exorcism. This is a confrontational approach, a facet of the relentless fight between good and evil.

We prefer a completely different approach. In our vision the ego is not per se bad and sinful. It is essentially full of fear and craving for love. As for entities, whether lost souls trapped around the material world after their physical life or so-called demonic entities, they are not intrinsically bad either even if they make us do “bad” things. We prefer to call them misguided. Even the souls of the most horrible criminals, sadists and tyrants, alive or dead, and the devil himself are ultimately poor sods who got themselves tangled in the wrong vibrations.

Think about it. If we are really serious about total unconditional love permeating an all encompassing oneness, we simply have no choice but extending empathy, pardon and sincere good intentions towards every conceivable bundle of consciousness. Short of absolute unconditional love, intuitive guidance by Presence gets blurred, and judgement sets in with attendant hatred and fear. And our whole nice vision collapses into total confusion. So every spiritual, psychological, healing technique or any other technique we may consider has to be in absolute alignment with total unconditional love extending to all possible entities, including people and animals alive, extraterrestrials, demons, earthbound spirits or any other invisible thing. This is non negotiable. Let’s be crystal clear about this: you bring an ounce of judgement and non love to the table, and all your best intentions go down the drain.

Admittedly this is not always so easy to do. Let’s face it, there are people, alive or dead, whom we love to hate for all kinds of reasons. And there are a lot of other people whom we find uninteresting if not totally repulsive. And there are a lot of situations and places we find unattractive, boring, or ugly. Changing our attitude towards non judgement – not silly optimism, but non judgement – requires a significant effort. But that’s the deal. All the techniques and tricks we are going to look at in the next pages aren’t worth anything without complete surrender to total unconditional love for all that exists.

Now on to the practical stuff. First, we need to protect ourselves from the mistakes of our ego and the misguided entities that seek to interfere with us. At the end of the day these effects boil down to one thing: distracting us from intuitive guidance by Presence, hindering our connection to Source, and sucking away our subtle energy. We need to develop tactics to ensure that we manage to keep following intuitive guidance and retain our vital energy in spite of all the distractions thrown at us. To do this we have to learn to recognise the tricks of ego and the entities. This is not like unmasking a culprit and putting him away for good. Because the ego is for ever changing, popping up with different faces. It can appear ruthless and vile, but also look nice and full of good intentions. So how can we recognise its whims and not confuse them for messages from Presence? What are the tangible manifestations to alert us?

A first sign is when your mind is caught in incessant chatter. You can’t stop it. It rumbles on and on from one idea or emotion to another at a frantic pace. Sometimes reminiscing old stuff, retrospective anger, suffering, shame or regrets. Or stirring negative anticipations about the future. This inner chatter of ego is exhausting and highly distractive. It keeps your attention away from what you are doing and covers the silent little voice of Presence.

Another sign is when your ideas and associated emotions tend to be restrictive or judgemental. When you allow yourself to be misguided by antipathy towards a person or group, by racism, nationalism, clichés, moral dogmas, political prejudices, etc…etc. Or on the contrary when you are lured by the seductive theatricals of people who just want to manipulate you and try to steal your energy. In all cases the limitations created by the ego destroy your ability to be free and engage in harmonious relations.

A further indication is when you feel deeply empty, dissatisfied, frustrated, in want of something you can’t exactly put your finger on. A feeling that life is not treating you as it should. This is a limiting belief that you are creating for yourself. You feel cheated, you resent it and you are prompted to feel resentment against everything and everybody.

What these various manifestations have in common is that they tend to make you feel tired, exhausted and depressed or stimulate you into manic agitation. The flow of energy is never balanced. The ego keeps your mind in a narrow vision of yourself in relation to the world around you. It makes you loose sight of your eternal perfect higher self and imagine that you are only this body and this social role. Neither of the latter can ever be up to your true aspirations. All this creates havoc into your mind-body-soul system. Destroying, sucking or perverting your life energy. And once your subtle energy is impaired the ego sets you on the prowl to find replacement energy to steal from outside. Drinking, taking drugs, staying glued to electronic gadgets, overworking, and compulsive eating…all forms of addictive behaviour are vain attempts to regain some of the vital energy drained by various entities through the contortions of ego. Learning to recognise the wrong messages of ego and to be aware of possible entities infesting your life comes with practice. Once you are aware of the phenomenon you gradually acquire the ability to spot its manifestations.

The next step is to develop techniques to prevent the ego and entities from getting you into trouble or prompt you to harm others. Think of the state of uncontrollable rage some people fall into when faced with unexpected frustrations. You see them shout and throw or break stuff, when it’s not actually hitting somebody. When it happens it is very painful for them, and can be traumatic for people around. The person is generally well aware, and quite ashamed of what he or she is up to, but can’t stop. The frustration build up is too powerful, steam has to come out. Defusing the workings of ego and attached entities consists in preventing the blend of thoughts and emotions leading to such rage and violence, or to covert self harming or other destructive attitudes, sometimes under the disguise of kindness and good intentions.

In the conventional view of life we tend to associate the way people behave to their “personality”, with its “good” and “bad” sides. Society tends to admire “strong” personalities, and generally values the idea of personality, as if it was something to be proud of and cherish. As if it was the intrinsic mark of what we are. In fact personality is only a superficial and temporary part of us: the role we play in this life, which is easily taken over by the ego. Techniques for muting the ego and keeping entities at bay rest on a clear awareness of what we really are: eternal and perfect waves of infinite consciousness. Clear awareness that there is nothing amiss about us and that we are in no way inferior or superior to anyone or anything.

A very effective technique to get rid of the negative ideas and emotions implanted in our body-mind-soul system through the mistakes of ego and interference of entities is “ho’oponopono”. This technique originating from Hawaai has become very popular in recent years. It consists in silently saying the words: “Sorry, please excuse me, thank you, I love you”. In poetic esoteric parlance you could say it’s a technique of purification. In a computer metaphor we can call it a procedure for cleansing files. The ego and attached entities work with limiting beliefs and judgements. If you remove these regularly, you literally pull the carpet from under their feet and stop them starting their act.

How can you use ho’ponopono in practice? Say you are going to meet someone – professionally or in a private context – and you are a bit apprehensive about his or her attitude towards you. Just before meeting the person, say the words. Say them sincerely, not addressed to the person, but addressed to the universe. You are effectively asking the universe to help you get rid of the judgements you may have about that person’s attitude towards you. In fact you don’t know what the person’s attitude is towards you. And what you imagine has no solid basis. So just wipe it all out. But this is not so easy to do, because your ego feeds you with all sorts of wrong ideas. So you ask the universe to clear away these wrong ideas. And you ask it with the words of ho’oponopono. An immediately tangible effect of ho’oponopono is to help you stay calm, attentive and open minded. It makes you appear more relaxed, less aggressive, more cooperative. The person in front of you senses this and responds accordingly. The dialogue is easier. Subtle energy flows better.

Fairly straightforward in fact, and very effective in a wide variety of circumstances. For instance you can use ho’oponopono while driving. You see stressed drivers in their cars around you, there is a lorry in front that you’ll have to overtake. Say the words to ask the universe to remove judgements or anticipations you might have about other drivers. You will feel more relaxed and more attentive. And other drivers will behave more decently than you’d half expected prior to your purification of thoughts and emotions. Yet these drivers could not possibly have observed your body language like a direct interlocutor in a meeting might perhaps do. So is some kind of telepathy involved? Who knows? The mechanics are not important. What matters is that it works. The words of ho’oponopono, and more importantly the sincere intention behind them actually influence reality, your reality, the one on the screen of your mind.

The technique can also be applied in relation to your body. If you feel pain or discomfort, you may ensure that you don’t get into a panic but keep an open mind and do your best to hear the messages your body is sending you. Like “you need a rest”. Or “you don’t want to be overburdened by excess food”. Say the words of ho’oponopono to ask the universe to eliminate any fears you might have about your health. It will help you remember that your body is not a machine getting gradually worn out but an open system continually regenerating itself, even in old age, even on the eve of death. And the latter after all is only a change of scenery at spiritual level.

The best way, in fact the only way, to learn the use of ho’oponopono is through regular practice in different contexts, at different times, with different people or things. You have to experiment and observe. And experiment not only with sincerity and confidence but also with respect for other peoples’ freedom. When you are discussing with someone, it may be that the other person is right to disagree with you or refuse to do what you are asking. So your attitude when addressing the words of ho’oponopono to the universe must be to wish what is best for all concerned rather just what your ego thinks is best for you.

Having some idea of how to mute ego and attached entities, we are now going to explore attitudes and techniques to prompt positive responses from Presence.

Part III. Follow your soul

The silent Presence

On the face of it, “our world” looks like becoming utterly awful. We’re marching towards global madness and our reasoning intellect appears powerless to deal with the inextricable knot of problems and contradictions facing mankind. But many observations suggest that the whole drama is only the shallow end of reality. There is clearly a much wider and more subtle side of existence. We peered through it in the first part of this book. And then used our insights to take a fresh look at what might be driving the global crisis in the material world.

Now we come to the practical part of the book: how we can change our life to create more harmony within ourselves, send positive vibes into the world and stop being intimidated by the dominant system. In the next chapters we discuss attitudes, techniques and tricks which work well for a number of people. But learning to swim through life’s tumultuous flow of energy is a personal adventure. So don’t take any of what follows as instructions for what you have to do. Try and experiment, and have confidence in the silent Presence within yourself. Presence is a true friend always ready to help. A kind and faithful partner waiting to guide your every step in a new dance.

But there are also intruders on the dance floor: our confused ego and misguided entities that continually try and distract us from paying attention to our steps. We have to become aware of how they operate and learn how to neutralise them. It’s the first major task in the process of change. Once we reach a stage where distractions thrown at us by the ego and misguided entities no longer make us trip everything becomes easier and much more fluid. We receive subtle energy through guidance from Presence. Fear, anxiety, anger and frustration are massively reduced. We’re able to start getting rid of our addictions. The law of attraction begins to serve us well. Synchronicities appear more evident; we perceive them and learn to respond to their messages. Self confidence and gratitude rise in our body-mind-soul. We are more lucid about what goes on in the material world but no longer get into a panic about it, no matter what fresh crises turn up on the screen.

None of this is an intellectual construct. The intellect knows hardly anything essential. Our intuition must be given the freedom to sense and experiment. Intuition isn’t restricted to the mind. It involves every aspect of us from conscious thoughts to physical sensations. From dreams to lucid dreams and silent impressions. Our key assumption about reality is that it is one, continuous, interacting flow of infinite energy and consciousness. And we have to trust it all. Trust its fundamental harmony and benevolence.

Part II: The heavy side of reality

Ego and dark entities

When you consider the chain of events which led to the present mess on our planet you wonder how and why it happened. Could it just have been a series of haphazard circumstances? Mindless evolution through pure chance without conscious intention? The probabilities of each single event are so ridiculously low that the whole scenario is simply impossible. And yet it happened. If we look at things only on the visible level the whole story eludes us. Somehow we have to come to terms with the inescapable evidence that what we see are visible manifestations of something happening at a different level of reality.

From our insights into the subtle realm we can think of “all there is” as an infinite field of energy, information, and consciousness steeped in unlimited non judgemental love. Such a vision is quite consistent with the harmony we see everywhere in nature. But it isn’t particularly easy to reconcile with the human history of violence and meanness. What is it in the whole scheme that turns human beings into such difficult, negative self harming creatures? We don’t know, but we can try prudent assumptions. Such as to imagine that in the subtle layers of reality distinct energy entities follow their own agenda not in alignment with universal love.

Many religious or esoteric traditions have offered images and stories of entities in the subtle realm interfering with creatures of our world. These entities – spirits, angels, demons.. – could be benign or malign. Some could have been incarnated as humans and others not, and some could be creatures from other planets or even other universes. More prosaically, subtle entities might just be clouds of thoughts and emotions potentially affecting our souls, minds and bodies. Metaphysical technicalities are not essential. What matters in the end is that subtle entities of one shape or another do interfere with us. And they do it largely through interacting with our own ego.

The ego is the mortal part of us. The one that sees itself separate from the rest of the universe and uses the reasoning intellect to try and deal with material things. There are very different facets to ego. It can appear arrogant and bullying or take on the clothes of humility and generosity. It can express itself though a whinny little voice or through noisy boasting. In whatever shape or role it turns up the ego is preoccupied with the “outside”: other peoples’ attitudes and judgements, society’s expectations, assumed dangers from the environment. It tends to see the outside as mainly hostile and is therefore steeped in fear and insecurity. The latter prevents the mind from reaching a relaxed confidence in the universe conducive to intuitive guidance. And disconnection from intuitive guidance attracts malign entities through resonance. Let’s explain that: each type of thought or emotion has its own “frequency”, like each sound or each colour. Thoughts and emotions of a negative streak such as fear, hatred, guilt, pessimism and so forth have low frequencies. And they resonate with subtle entities in the low frequency range. Think also of the universe as a vast computer network and each of us as a terminal. Any software can be downloaded on your terminal, including viruses, destructive programmes. Call the latter misguided entities. These keep trying to sneak into the human body-mind-soul system to feed from its energy. When they have managed to sneak into your system these entities create havoc. Not just in your conscious thoughts, but also in your emotions, in your unconscious attitudes, in the cellular memory of your body tissues. They make you un-well, fearful and aggressive. Think of when you were in a state of violent, uncontrollable rage, shouting, perhaps throwing stuff and hitting. Haven’t you thought afterwards, or even during the episode, “I wasn’t myself”? And indeed you weren’t yourself; your system was controlled by some entity or entities. When your energy is being sucked away by entities attached to you, your ego unconsciously starts looking out for things to meet its lack; it can be objects, money, relationships, alcohol, drugs, attention-seeking illnesses…whatever. This is happening to every human to some degree.

We can’t pretend that all this is the full and only truth. But it is a very useful model to shift one’s attitudes and relationships with fellow human beings, other creatures, oneself and life in general. The purpose of such a shift is to attract more positive events. This will be explained in detail in part III. At this stage we are simply going to be pragmatic and use this fairly simple metaphysical model to get a sense of what might be behind the movement of history through to the present apparent dead end. Not for the sake of satisfying our intellectual ego but as a foundation for positive, free and lucid mindset and action.

We have outlined how the ego can easily get entangled with entities that suck energy away from an individual and keep him disconnected from Source. And we have noted that this happens to virtually everybody to some degree. With this in mind, let us now consider the ruling elite who are driving society and the planet to utter chaos. Clearly these guys’ egos are entangled with viciously corrupt entities. And it appears obvious that many generations of rulers and mighty folks throughout history have been similarly “possessed”. Most of them were probably unaware of being effectively controlled by entities. There is no need to hate them retrospectively. Even the little man with a moustache who led the Nazis was in fact just a poor soul completely trapped by entities. As for today’s members of the elite, a lot of them probably suffer quite badly themselves even when living in visible comfort and “benefiting” from the trappings of power and success. If asked, they would probably deny their suffering, and pretend they are proud and happy to have made it to the top. Why then did ex prime ministers and presidents turn senile relatively shortly after leaving power? Why did super successful entrepreneurs died from cancer at a relatively young age? Not that they had lacked material comfort or intellectual stimulation. Is it perhaps that they experienced unbearable tensions, and losing their minds or bodies was their escape?

Infestation of the mind and runaway egos are not limited to people at the top. They can be found at all levels of society. And someone fairly highly positioned might actually be less infected than a low rank tyrant or sadist. In any case it is pointless to judge anybody, and not only pointless but totally unhelpful to hate or resent anyone. Negativity is cumulative. Resenting someone who has harmed you doesn’t wipe out the harm, it compounds it. That may be difficult to accept because we have been raised with this idea of justice and retribution. When pardon is granted, it is often conceded with a sort of condescending magnanimity perched on the moral high ground. But the whole moral business is a colossal distraction. Trying endlessly to know what is moral or immoral is pure waste of time and energy. It’s part of the deception trap. Low frequency thoughts always resonate with entities in the same frequency range. The only thing that can shift your life, and all lives, towards harmony and wellbeing is love, absolute unconditional love. Without judgement. Without preferences. Love of all. If you start segregating and think “oh I hate that bastard because he’s done such and such” you fall in the trap. The trap of non love based on judgements. In part III of the book we will look at a very simple but powerful technique for cleansing our mind and body software of unhelpful judgements.

We are beginning to get a sense of why human beings so often appear to be difficult, negative self harming creatures. It’s not, as self proclaimed “hard realists” maintain, that mankind is fundamentally bad, and that all we can do is to put in place organisations and moral codes to try and control the effects of human evil. This has been done for generations. And the result is clearly disastrous, suggesting that the underlying model is not appropriate. We use an entirely different model. We recognise that humans have a link to absolute perfection and kindness through their higher self, but that their ego often falls prey to entities which divert energy and cause disharmonious behaviour. In many cases, this simple metaphysical model provides clearer explanations of human behaviour than complicated theories from conventional psychology.

However we have to go a step further and stretch our model to account for collective dynamics beyond individual behaviour. How could the mere interplay of different ego’s entangled by entities have led to the Inquisition, to the slave trade, to millions of young men complying with orders sending them to the trenches in WWI, to the incredible horrors of WWII, to more than 2000 tests of nuclear weapons carried out after the second world war, to several thousands of nuclear weapons being deployed now ready to use at a moment’s notice, to systematic destruction of soils and eco-systems, to crazy uses of hard technologies in life sciences and medicine, etc. etc. In each situation, at every point in history including now, leaders, underlings and foot soldiers contribute to the chain. For example, there must be someone paid to take the dust off nuclear missiles. Well, perhaps not. But there were and are millions of people paid to execute operational tasks in all these sectors. Salesmen, technicians, accountants, receptionists, soldiers, doctors, nurses,.. They contribute to the smooth operation of systems with incredibly powerful effects on people and nature. Are they aware of these effects? Does it bother them? Perhaps to some extent. But then they need a job, an income. They have a social position, commitments, a mortgage to serve.

When you consider a doctor or a nurse in the medical system, they can still kid themselves that they are doing more good than harm. In some cases that is true. But what about when they are injecting multiple vaccination cocktails into babies or encouraging teenage girls and young women to be vaccinated for cervical cancer, knowing how controversial these procedures are? And the people in the military industries, in pesticides, or GMO’s. Are they blind and deaf? And those in the media and entertainment sectors which propagate utter rubbish, or in the education system which disseminates a narrow vision of science and knowledge split into disconnected silos to serve the interests of the establishment. Many things are interlinked in the global society, and most people are directly or indirectly serving organisations that are far from clean and innocent. This may be more brutally evident nowadays than in the past. But in fact it is not new. In a number of authoritarian regimes, pretty much everybody had to serve the system or be in real trouble. In feudal societies dominated by aristocracies and religious elites there was not much room for visible dissent. There is like a red line of tyranny running from ancient times thousands of years before the Christian era right through to our ultra sophisticated global system. What is it that keeps it going?

Some conspiracy theorists claim that entities have deliberately targeted humans over very long periods to harvest their vital energy. Specifically their energy emitted at low frequencies, associated with fear, violence, or hatred. This is why leaders under their control are given the job of driving the masses to disharmony and conflict. And why these same leaders always foster patriarchal regimes hard on women and nature, and impose dogmatic visions stifling intuitive connection with the subtle realm. That may seem a far fetched story, but we have to admit that it accounts rather well for a lot of what is going on. So we can use it as a model to help think through the best way to respond to the situation, which at the end of the day is the only thing that matters. If we accept the premise that entities interfering with us, whatever their nature, are after low vibration energy, we have an important clue to determine which types of response may work and which are bound to yield poor results. Do you remember these massive popular anti war demonstrations a decade ago? They did not prevent the US and UK governments from attacking Iraq. And more generally, have you noticed how disappointing are the effects of most activism? Why should that be so? Because in their desire to fight what they regard as evil, well meaning activists often unwittingly generate substantial low vibration energy in resonance with the issues they are trying to address. And this low vibration energy actually feeds the entities behind the problem. It isn’t defeatist mentality to recognise the phenomenon. On the contrary, being totally lucid paves the way for an effective response.

Leaving invisible entities aside for a minute, we can observe that most things going on in society involve groups, communities and organisations such as companies, churches, hospitals, schools, etc. Each group or organisation has its own dynamics, its own members and supporters, and its own opponents. And it picks up energy from all of them, whether friend or foe. The different groups and organisations are in constant competition to attract energy from individuals. You and I are for ever solicited to give off attention and energy. When you think of yourself as British, or Catholic, or middle class, or employee of company X, or feminist, or paying too much tax, you are in effect giving a form of loyalty or opposition, and therefore energy, to a group, organisation or informal cause. The latter, whatever its nature, is feeding off you. This happens at a subtle level, and you are probably unaware of the extent to which it creates a drag on your energy and places limiting beliefs in your mind. Whether there are invisible entities lurching behind the groups harvesting our energy is less important that the dynamics at work.

Having energy effectively sucked away from us happens in one to one relations as much as when groups or organisations are involved. We all know individuals who are real energy vampires. They may be bullies or whiners, but are in any case true manipulators.

And to probe even closer, we often waste energy without anybody but ourselves and our own demons involved. Say you have a low self esteem and even a sense of shame in you for an unclear reason – perhaps your great great granny was abused in her teens, or you were a slave in a previous incarnation, who knows. In any case, the low self esteem deep in your system destroys your vital energy.

To sum up, referring to invisible entities, whatever they are, is admittedly very speculative. However what matters is not so much to know “the truth”, which we obviously can’t, but to have a reasonably coherent model to help us find a way to deal with existence more effectively than through materialist-cum-dogmatic subservience. The latter brings only misery to individuals and contributes to the general mess. But we can choose another dance with reality. And this is the subject of part III which follows.
