Sometimes, when I answer you I ask a question of you;
If you really had a choice, how would you choose?
If you had a magic wand to fix your life,
How would you wave it?
If you had a switch, that you could throw, that would end your suffering without killing you, would you throw it?
More important than discussing the possibility of such magics, is discussing your will to use them.
What good is a true solution if you won’t use it?
And is there such a switch?
Does such a choice exist?
Can you have such power over your own life?
Yes there is such a switch.
You can actually turn off your suffering, and continue living in peace.
Do you remember the Matrix? The movie? The two pills? The rabbit hole?
Itâ€™s a little like that, but much more subtle and of course no robots.
I did not invent or discover the switch, itâ€™s purpose is centuries old.
In fact I speak of it here often, but few of you ever noticeâ€¦
Take no heed for the morrow,
For the morrow never comesâ€¦
Two Barriers stand in your way to throwing the switch,
one is your time-mind and the others is your ego-Atachment.
When you learn to control these two aspects of your life, you will learn to be free of suffering, you will walk in this world, but as never before, colors will be brighter, time will move slower, all people will appear as their true selves, beautiful. You can become as love itself, free from its opposite, not just in love, but made of love.
Your use of drugs and alcohol to subjagate your depression makes sense as it alters your perceptions. You dull your connection to your own past and future and to your own thoughts.
But drugs and alcohol can often make depression worse in the long run.
Better to alter your perceptions by stepping out of the world of painful illusion, into the truth of light.
I encourage you to read every post I have left here.
All are my gift to you.
Two posts focus on the Switch, they are called;
I am the Guardian.
My time here is brief.
Before I leave I will leave a map called;
the Circle Path
And I will answer as many questions as I can regarding the possibility
that you all have beautiful, full, lives ahead of you.
But for you, now, I will shed some light on the Switch:
Your thoughts are not you, you are not your mind.
You are more real and more alive when you are not thinking.
Your whole existance takes place in a tiny slice of time called now.
You can only be free of suffering if you live here, in the now.
The past is just your memories playing in your head, in the now.
The future is just your worries playing in your head, in the now.
Live right now, turn off your Atachment to past and future.
The thoughts in your head become an ego, your ego pretends to be you.
You are a being, already perfect, you are not your ego or itâ€™s thoughts.
Because you have an ego which is your thoughts pretending to be you, you attach to people and things.
Whenever you attach, you also take on the pain of losing what you are attached to, this is why depressed people cannot find salvation by finding a lover.
You will not find an end to suffering by attaching to that perfect guy or girl, if you need a helpful friend to guide you through your healing you must find a Mentor.
You must learn to only be attached to this moment, to the now, learn to reduce your attachments to the past, the future, to lovers, people and things.
You learn this non Atachment through the process of acceptance.
Learn to accept your situation, it will not make your situation worse, but it will make you better.
You cannot have a problem in the now, in this moment.
Learn to accept only what is now, all else is false and is simply the thoughts in your head.
Remember the other people who tease and bully you? The pain they cause is actually your ego attaching itself to them in a negative way.
The lover who jilted you? That was her ego, in pain, hurting you both.
As you learn to live unattached, you will learn to experience the real love that had no opposite, no painful end. You will fill with this love and become much more attractive to the whole world around you as you fulfill you destiny upholding the light that illuminates the universe.
This is not magic.
This is not science.
This is not religion.
This is enlightenment.
Om shanti (I am a peaceful soul)
