Why You’re Still Stuck: How to Break Through and Awaken to Your True Self, We think that by doing all of this, we are avoiding suffering. We’re not. An avoidance of life is suffering. An avoidance of our True Self is suffering. The Archons preventing Mankind from finding their Higher Self, and therefor keeping them trapped within ignorance (sleep and darkness), and tuned into suffering of this world.

We cannot handle the cognitive dissonance between our self-image and our avoidance, so we build a fantasy to escape it. We live out our fantasy in our heads, which the world remains oblivious to. We think we’re hiding out there to avoid suffering, but it’s in our fantasies where we suffer the most. Our fantasies are fuel for our narcissistic image and are a rejection of life. These fantasies—along with our stories and images—are the very things that prevent us from having a real life.

We think that by doing all of this, we are avoiding suffering. We’re not. An avoidance of life is suffering. An avoidance of our True Self is suffering. But living life fully and experiencing all its joys and sorrows? That is not suffering.

The Heroic Life

The avoidant life doesn’t have to be your destiny. Your life offers the opportunity—as it does everyone else—to be heroic. Consciousness beckons us to express the archetypal story of humanity through our own lives. This “Hero’s journey” calls us all to adventure and is the same fundamental story expressed in all the great myths. It is ‘heroic’ because it tells the story of humanity: we heed the call, leave home, stumble and fall, learn, transform, face our demons, lose hope, die and resurrect, triumph over adversity, save the village, get the treasure, and become hope itself. That is the essential human story. This is such a terrifying yet rewarding path for us to take because it thrusts us unapologetically into one of many flavors of the eternal story. We take a leading role in the cosmic play—leading not because we are better than, but because we lead humanity courageously to the Truth.

This process—life—works when it connects us to our humanity. All of it. Not only the pleasant, fun, abundant, light parts—but the horrific, dangerous, chaotic, and shadowy parts too. But we don’t like those dark, humany things, and so we reject them. We would rather have our comforts and fantasies than live a life that includes everything. Instead, we avoid the shadow and thus avoid life. We choose to sanitize, dilute, give up, and refuse the call. We choose the plastic replica, mask, and artificial apple treat instead of the genuine article. We filter out all the shadows and are left with a flat, two-dimensional life.

You have two paths ahead of you: one is the path to a heroic life, and the other leads to an avoidant life.

The heroic life moves us from the realm where “all life is suffering” to a realm where we become a vehicle that brings consciousness forth into the world. Like Hermes, we become a messenger for the gods, and like the Philosopher’s Stone, we “transmute lead into gold.” In practical terms: we move humanity forward because of our journey. We begin to make our lives stand for something greater than our suffering.

We do something about our situation or another’s, rather than sitting around dwelling in misery. We move from the confines of our culture and upbringing, and begin to wake up to something outside of the mundane. Something inside of us stirs. We get a nudge… we hear a whisper. We are called to leave our ordinary way of being, with the attachments and comforts of everyday life, and begin to show up more fully in the world.

The avoidant life is a life of repression, and what is repressed is the fear of being who-we-really-are and everything that requires of us. It is the constant denial of the call. We simultaneously yearn for the fullest expression of our True Self and resent the quest to realize it. We look towards what we want, seeing the wasteland and dangers that lie ahead, and judge them. It appears hard, treacherous, impossible, and so we deem our truth not worth the risk.

We turn away not only because of a lie, but towards a lie. A lie of ease, safety, and comfort. But how easy is a mundane, mediocre life full of suffering? How safe are avoidance and denial really? How comfortable is the lack of peace and fulfillment, or the boredom, depression, and emptiness? The avoidant life seems like the easier path, and it may be—on the surface. You don’t have to face the fears, put yourself out there to be rejected, endure the failures, tell the truth, take responsibility, make hard choices, or risk your life. The costs of what is lost, regretted, betrayed, abandoned, denied, and shunned by taking this path are not as obvious, yet are perhaps even greater in their price.

Both are valid, and both will be a life that’s exactly what you need… but only one is worthy of your divinity.

So humanity began , almost by accident , with grains of original light trapped within him , each of which must spend itself trying to be reunited with God . Thus the drama of exile , which was to be played out …

to the time when the Earth will be on the brink of needing the Healing bomb of Divine energy contained in the whole golden disc yet to be re-assembled and activated. It will be a close call as the realm of darkness battles the realm of light in the eternal cosmic struggle.

The standard medical belief that you have two strands of DNA. Deese two strands, with all their complex amino acids and RNA, hold the codes and genetic material that makes you who you are. Or so you thought; only having two strands is actually very limiting and keeps you trapped in the third dimension and the illusion of separation.

Believing all you are is your body, believing God is out there somewhere, and that you are worker ants, or slaves that have to work hard just to survive on this planet. I and my original colleagues can take some of the blame for that condition as we wished to totally control you, so only allowed two strands of DNA to be active in your early bodies. We needed workers to do our laborious jobs.

Humans or Mankind is programmed to believe they were locked into death, decay and being hooked up to survival; to believe they are being controlled by and are slaves to time. Cut of from the unlimited abundance of all there is, and with the DNA only partially activated, their multi-dimensional selves have been trapped in a prison of experience that repeats itself over and over again, as though the entire planet is playing a stuck record. Some call this Karma. Humanity has been known for its inability to learnfrom its own adventures; tyrants and wars have come and gone, and none seemed the wiser for it until now. This is where it alllighte s up; as humans wake up start to empower themselves, awakening to their Divinity, Light Body and Multi-dimensional Self

When Gnosticism wages war against the cosmos and its archons assolving the deceit of a man – made reality and every ideology of human domination over creation

The cosmic struggle involves the human being. This is then the third point to notice in the metaphysics of Life Philosophy. The human individual acquires its importance as a being split between spirit and life: namely. between the conscious rational, mental part of its life and its natural. original (hidden) internal ‘spark.’

Humankind aspires to know its own true nature. which is identical to the ‘nature’ of things ‘as they really are.’ The concept of ‘experience’ (Erlebnis) was to serve here as the main tool for anyone wishing to touch upon things as they are. There can be no Life Philosophy without the concept of experience or its derivatives.

This is due to this concept’s role as a vessel that carries us beyond the boundaries of the familiar world to a hidden nature yet to be discovered. mapped and exposed. This voyage of the human being into ‘experience’ is identical to anti cosmic motivation: the assettion that one must eircumsent the (innately false) world order as we know it in order to touch upon the ‘nature’ of things ‘as they really aft’

The human being is thus divided between spirit and life, and represents the arena of combat between these elements. Humans seek to expose their true (hidden) nature. thereby revealing the true nature of things. To my mind this is the most important point of those reviewed thus far. Since true nature and the exalted divine are identical. the human being aspires to connect with the hidden divine spark. within him or herself.

The dichotomy between ‘true’ reality and imagined reality of the world as we know it; the supremacy of the ‘true; living element as the sole source of everything: the hidden, foreign. unseen quality attributed to the ‘nature’ of things ‘as they really are the individual’s place as a being divided between spirit and lifc, and humanity’s quest to expose its true (hidden) nature and thereby also the nature of things as they are – are merely a reconstruction within Life Philosophy’s symbolism of the gnosticism attributed to the sects that operated in the first centuries AD. Dualism, monism and the role of the human being are then the elements of gnostic theology; they constitute gnosis as much as Lifc Philosophy. Yet,

Lifc Philosophy emerges more particularly as a modem construal of the original gnosticism. This is a type of modem, secular construal since it involves interpreting gnosis as a contemporary system of symbols and metaphors. At the center of this interpretation we find that two basic concepts, immanence and transcendence, have undergone a role reversal or a crossover.

Within the gnosticism perceived as original by scholarship – namely, that of the first centuries no – the hidden, true benevolent God is transcendent and opposed to a (false) world of immanent nature (whether this be the product of a God of creation. or is equivalent to a self-contained creation).

In Life Philosophy the roles arc reversed: here it is immanent nature to which oneshould connect and which one should come to know, while it is the spiritual God of transcen dence from whose oppressive fetters one must break free. Within this context, the deification of nature entails a reformulation, using the terminology of Life Philosophy, of the foreign, hidden divinity that is the gnostic God of love: and this reformulation entails a metaphorical reversal. Here, secularization of gnosis may be termed as a form of ‘immanentization’ of the former gnostic transcendent God.

Life Philosophy may thus be portrayed as a modem. secular world view which is nonetheless informed by a gnostic. anti-cosmic cosmology. As such, it is a form of heresy: the world is oppressive, gnosis liberates,
