Does that mean you go through life like the sphinx? Cold as stone? A burning volcano never erupting? Emotionless? Not at all. Does it mean that you are unmovable? Choosing the emotions that run through you consciously aware? That you operate from choice? Absolutely! Something to strive for! Emotion is essential to us or else man would be inert and passive. Emotion is what stimulates all our thoughts and brings about action. It is like the gasoline that fuels your engine. But it will be a serious mistake to add petroleum to your diesel motor or vice versa.
You could learn more about this in Empower Thyself if you wish where we talk more about the cycle of human processes and the stimuli behind all thought processes Empower Thyself
When we work with the emotional side of our character we can strengthen our virtues and eliminate our vices. The system of Universal Hermetic Ray Kabbalah is where you can learn more about all these virtues and vices and how to recognise them in yourself . Universal Hermetic Ray Kabbalah
Annie Besant writes that “Emotion is not a simple or primary state of consciousness, but is made up by the interaction of the two aspects of the Self – Desire and Intellect.”
Desire – and here I am using it to digress. As many more reports are flooding in from all over the world in response to recent attacks on the lineage and leaders of the MMS, I am sickened to my stomach by the manipulation and conniving that is becoming more apparent and all for the illusion of glory, fame and fortune. Is it justified to destroy others because you don’t like the results of what you personally put in place? Does it justify the course of action for publicity sake? How do you sleep at night if all that is driving you is to fulfil your own questionable desires? Using others by misrepresenting the truth. By scheming and plotting. Manipulating media for ulterior motives. Desires employed to separate and destroy.
Now, we are not talking about those desires that takes us to higher planes. Desires that edge us on to become more than we have ever been. To heal and overcome. No, I am talking here about the vices of desiring anything and everything that others have. Covetousness. Jealousy. Desires to possess and shun. Those things that make us the victims of our own lack of goodness. The things that create dependency. That makes us malicious and on the prowl of destroying what is good and beautiful. Attraction and Repulsion – the two forms of desire.
In dealing with the ethics of emotions and desire we have to note then their similarities and differences. Emotion has been defined as desire infused with Intellect. Emotion which has the essence of attraction can be called LOVE. Associated with objects that brings pleasure, that brings togetherness. In the true sense of the word Love is not an emotion but a force of the Universe. Attracting and integrating energy. The force behind the form.
It has been distorted to be so much that it is not, this thing called love. Probably because of the choices made to infuse it with intellect or not. It’s true nature is to unite. So much unity has come from these and other vile allegations thrown out into the world. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge all those around the world that has come together in love. I respect you whether you have publicly responded or to me in person. I know it is so hard to stand in open transparency because of the judgment and opinions that it comes with. I know candid speaking makes one the target of many things. I have become an overnight skilled professional at speaking my mind lol. I know it is so hard because we are flooded by so much that can distract our attention from the task at hand.
But let’s get back to emotions. Emotion from the essence of repulsion is termed HATE. VICE. Disintegrating energy in the Universe. Energy that has pain at its core and therefore desiring to repel, separate and destroy. Where there is hate the temporary victor (victim) will scream vindictiveness, treachery and revenge. Hate is not of Self, it is not a force but it is from form, thus matter.
Love manifests as self-sacrifice, benevolence, protection, confidence, gratitude and reverence. Love is from Spirit and therefore Life. Yes in the Modern Mystery School International we teach that you are an eternal being, you are spirit in the flesh. As an eternal being I am at the cause of threatening everything that operates from the flesh side of Life!
Hate, revenge, rejection on the other hand manifests as self-aggrandisement, scorn and the desire for mutual injury. But then again what starts out as the virtue of love-emotion has been proven time and time again to be at the core of hate-emotions. It all boils down to the intention of the actions. Contempt for the honour of another. Selfish grasping at personal pleasure at the cost of social honour and decency. Destroying what is sacred and revered. Lack of respect for self and others.
Love-emotion is shown in compassion, generosity, forgiveness, trust and respect. The virtuous man (or woman) is thrown into conflict with evil and even the righteous may suffer temporarily, but that inner peace can’t be destroyed and more virtue grows from that. The outer misery is not due to the virtue of love but only to the circumstances which oppose its practice!
I for one, but so many others, have been the recipient of much of this projection of the hate-emotion and evil even while serving the living and the dying.So I must be doing something that evil doesn’t like. Holding the hand of a sister or brother dying. Serving another that wishes to overcome their pain and suffering by standing up and moving out of victimhood. What is not a crime these days?
Hate-emotion will yield the fruits of fear, cowardice, attack and revolt. Even when it is veiled amid a mass of lies, falsities and deceit, no matter if it stems from pain or hurt – more anguish and misery will always be the end result.
Miss Helen Taylor said: “That for the man who dies for the sake of truth, death is easier than life with falsehood. It is easier for the righteous man to die as a martyr than to live as a hypocrite”. I will stand in open transparency and have nothing to hide, neither my mistakes nor imperfections. I have nothing that I am fearful to read about myself in a public tabloid. Feel free to publish more lies, rumours and allegations with or without basis. Ask me and I will share my greatest humiliations, there are but a few.
A parting note to address Intellect. Emotion should be the impulse to action but not the director of the movie. Intellect should always be the guiding force. Strong emotion as the impulse directed by reason and intellect makes the wise man/woman.
Thanks to the extended training I have had in my life and especially since joining the MMS I have no attachment to this physical form life, reputation or public image. My words and deeds and actions will speak for itself.
Will yours? Will it hold up against the scrutiny of private investigators? Will it hold up in a court of law? Will it hold up at the throne of God?
I pray that you will all find the peace and joy in your life today. I hold only love in my heart for every soul, even those misguided, and I hold the firm belief that your greatest pain will become your greatest strength if you just get out of your own way.
I have no animosity towards anyone for their opinions or judgments. No time to waste on it either. I have work to do!
May you all have bliss today. May you all find inner peace always!
