Welcome to Week #3! In our first two weeks, we talked about what we’ve lost (self-love), and why we lost it (fear).
Today we’ll explore the places we can go to find it. As it turns out, there are a lot of them.
These are some scary places. They are places that no one wants to admit owning real estate in. Yet we all do, and we’ve all visited, if not lived there for a bit.
Here’s the thing. There are reasons for this. These have to do with the capture of earth’s society and the slavery system in which you live. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and you, my fellow Questers, have survived the most desperate of them all. The slave-owners made sure of that.
You see, in order to maintain order in a hierarchal system (slavery), submission and compliance must be assumed.
Without them there is chaos. (Which, by the way, is where we are now.)
Yet, this is a Quest for Self-Love and you’ll have to go back in time a bit to figure out where it is. It’s not actually gone, it’s hiding.
The brilliance of the slave-owner’s plan was in its construction. Ownership and the assumptions of submission and compliance were embedded into your day-to-day life. They are so thoroughly part of the cloth of society that they are indistinguishable from society itself. Think about these things:
Social security number
Working for a “living”
You are numbered, registered and injected at birth. If it stopped there, perhaps you’d develop into strong self-empowered adults without a hitch. But schooling and testing and more labeling ensued by age 5, and the pressure to conform became ingrained. So you did, to whatever extent you could stand. Conformity may offer temporary comfort, yet is an ultimately joyless enterprise.
In that joyless state, you sought truth. Do you remember what this is, and what you know absolutely in your soul? That you are a brilliant bit of love’s essence, with joy as your natural state. Unfortunately, there weren’t places offering guidance here. All of your fellow humans were similarly searching. You felt as if you were on your own.
From there and eventually, you went to the scary places. They promised fulfillment and happiness, yet left you empty. Here’s a few you may have visited:
Hatred and Justification
Disappointment, a mirror for Expectations
Each of these, in some way, improved how you felt for a moment or two, and then you were hollow. Remember that this Quest is a Quest for self-love, which is reflected in our love for all others.
The plan of the controllers is, at its core, a plan that denies your worth. Its genius is in the fact that in it, they never had to tell you that you were worthless. Society did. The society that was so carefully structured to hide its purpose; its purpose of control. What is the best way to keep someone controlled? Fear.
In such a state, you sought acknowledgment. In your seeking, you may have felt you found it by ranking yourself against some “other” who was “lesser” or “wrong” or somehow not as cool as you in some way. You learned to do these comparisons by the society that set them up. Remember that. “Failure is not an option”. You learned well.
The feeling of worthiness didn’t last. If you admitted to yourself honestly how you felt afterwards, it was “hollow”. The trophy or money or test score or status was great, but your heart still felt empty much of the time.
This emptiness is not because there’s something wrong with you. It’s because there’s everything right with you, and society doesn’t reflect that. This is by design. You feel it (self-worth), you know its true, and you’ve been convinced that to claim your value is somehow “wrong” or “arrogant” or “conceited”. These words are used to stop you.
It is not wrong to love yourself. It is not arrogant to value yourself. It is not conceited to know your worth. These things are truth. Holding them is self-authority.
So, if you’ve visited any of these scary places and/or used comparison to assign self-value, realize that it was in desperation that you did so. You were attempting to validate your truth. Forgive yourself. Remember who you are and love that self that is you.
See you next week.
