CHAPTER FOUR
Emotions

Emotions are a language unto themselves. This is our first physical form of communication before developing vocabulary. The emotional function is a sensory system guiding biologically adaptive self-regulation, our emotional senses becoming triggered by positive or negative reactive states of mind. When we experience triggered emotions, which are charges of energy directed by personal interpretation, the limbic system (our emotional processing center) carries them out, causing a corresponding chemical release and reaction.


Emotional sense, stimulated by internal or external environment, is often the trigger of reactionary impulses until we choose to become actionary. The senses and emotions can trigger impulsive actions in response to stimuli. In a world where emotions are often allowed to remain unconstrained, the state of being reactionary leads to being easily taken over by entities.


Emotions are also a form of energy. Emotion = E + motion or energy in motion. Emotions are the electrical impulses driving the body through stimulation of the senses or emotional energy. When we attach to an emotion, the energy gets trapped, causing energetic disruptions (discord), until it is allowed to resume movement freely via atonement.


An example:

We are electromagnetic beings with a vibrational grid. The grid is like a stringed instrument such as a harp; if one of the harp strings were damaged, it would be out of tune and not play the correct cords. Cleaning and tuning the string(s) would be to a tone your instrument, as in atonement (a-tune-ment). In this, think of yourself as vibrational, like the waves of a musical note.


But first, we must learn and understand what makes us out of tune. To understand better how these entities feel, think of emotional triggers and responses. Think of the feeling each emotion puts out as it courses through the body. Recall if you have ever had an emotion stick with you for a while. If you focus, that emotion can rise to the surface, and you can feel it course through the body.


Thinking about what triggers this emotion can get it running through the mind, allowing you to intentionally feel it. As you can see, thoughts fuel emotions. It is difficult not to feel them because we find ourselves in an emotional and sensational labyrinth.


It is even harder to navigate that confusing labyrinth when you lack emotional intelligence, as this is a state in which you lack self-control during a reactionary state disconnected from equanimity.


Emotions tend to be conditional or dependent on outside influences such as a person, place, thing, experience, or other sensory input. Most people mistakenly believe that love and hate are at opposite ends of the spectrum. It is indifference that dwells at the opposite end of hate, not love.

 

Keep in mind that these opposites are not two separate things but one thing at different ends of a spectrum. They are also in the spectrums of likes and dislikes, positive and negative or hot and cold, all affecting the body by either heating or cooling it and thereby making it more or less electromagnetic, where emotions such as anger raise the energetic level.

 

However, it uses and depletes that energy rapidly and the negative charge of that emotion puts a drain on the positive charge of life energy. Emotions such as anger create friction and heat. This is where we get the terms ‘hot-headed’ and ‘in the heat of an argument’.

The emotion of joy raises the energetic and electromagnetic heat levels of the body.
Depression is on the other side of the spectrum, as sadness or depression depletes energy, causing a cooling effect and dimming the electromagnetic field.


You may have recognized that when you are excited, a warm feeling passes throughout the body. When you feel anger, blood rushes, the adrenaline is pumping, and the body heats up. You may also be aware of the experience of depression having a draining energetic effect, leaving you feeling tired and often cold. 


We are electric, electromagnetic beings with the ability to attract what we desire. However, we do not precisely attract the thoughts we put out.


Thought alone does not magnetically attract; however, it works in conjunction with our emotional state. We magnetically attract that which we feel in conjunction with our thoughts. If the two do not align, we will only receive what we are expressing.


For example, if you are feeling depressed, that is what you will magnetically attract to yourself. If you feel abundant in life, that is what you will attract. It is a bit of a paradox. You need to change how you feel about your circumstances for your circumstances to change—akin to what some refer to as a chicken and egg situation! It takes considerable focus and effort to change the feelings about your circumstances. Only then will those circumstances begin to improve.


If you desire positive things in life, the way you feel about yourself plays a vital role. Your engagement with life will reprogram the mind. You can replace habits developed from negative feelings into other more uplifting ones, giving yourself a mental upgrade.


Learning to develop genuine gratitude and expressing it, is one way to start building these emotions within yourself. This will enable you to change the internal magnetic marker from a negative one to a positive one, or even to neutral in advanced practices.

A tip:


If you find yourself saying negative things often, learn to catch yourself in action. Instead of putting those negative thoughts into words, start making a habit of saying something positive in replacement.
Find something to be grateful for or a form of positive communication to the universe, self, or another.
Being your own friend is vital. Sometimes, this means standing up to negative self-talk. If you were with a loved one and someone was speaking poorly or even abusively to them, would this be acceptable behavior? You would be of the mind to say, “Do not speak to my friend/partner like that.”

 

Stand up for yourself, create boundaries and figure out what is
acceptable from others as well as from yourself! No confrontation needed, only snuffing out that fire by walking away with intention from abusive communicators, catching yourself in negative self-talk, and defending yourself.


Then counter that negative talk with positive reinforcement and self-appreciation.
Whether it comes from an internal or external source, other people do not cause our ‘triggering’ emotions such as greed, anger and envy. They come from our responses. Thus, we perpetuate them by the ego entities. This change of mind sets the stage for a different
way of viewing emotional encounters. Although people may trigger emotions, nobody can make another person feel a certain way. We are the only ones responsible for our mental state.

 

Not everything is worth a reaction, or an action. Part of emotional intelligence involves the ability to discern when a response triggered by emotion is worthwhile. There is no ‘need’ to respond to everything or everyone. It is a choice to make at a conscious level.


Emotional intelligence, in part, also comprises learning that others are not the root cause of our emotions. The root is within us. Find within yourself what needs are unmet, and you will find the actual source of the emotional turmoil that is weakening your resolve.

Recognize, then address, the root source of emotional and sensational disturbances, and then cease placing so much blame outside of yourself. When we stop blaming others, we improve accountability and develop a deeper awareness and understanding of both our own and others’ experiences.


Once aware of these subtle energies, we can isolate and determine whether energy is external, such as an emotion or sensation, or internal, such as from the psyche, alkalinity, malnutrition, lack of vitamins, minerals, dehydration, disease, etc.


The internal emotions deal with the internal workings of the body and its independent energy systems as opposed to outside influences that come and go. Self-reflection is a means to develop new emotional and sensational internal and external awareness.


In the development of emotional and sensational awareness, we identify needs. This is having our needs met and becoming aware of our actual needs as well as working toward meeting the needs of others in favor of the betterment of life for everyone.


We need to be working toward removing the limited thought perceptions of casting blame outside of ourselves for internal or external emotions. Many such emotions generate due to unfulfilled needs. Unfulfillment and dissatisfaction can make it easier to blame others. Yet this is often deferring responsibility, as we are responsible for the situations into which we place ourselves, as well as for the expectations we place on others. So too with our thoughts, words, and actions.


When we become responsible for our emotional state of being, we may eventually realize that it is not a case of others triggering us, but our untamed mind leading to/from an emotional ineptitude.


We cannot run from ourselves because wherever we go, there we are!


Hence, it never pays to uproot and move to another country, dragging all our possessions along, to ‘escape’ from some kind of emotion. A change of scene will not rid it. The negative emotion dwells within us and is a happy traveler. After spending all that money on the move, you will only find your familiar ‘old friend’—misery, loneliness, anxiety, fear, loathing—has come along to be your companion in the new place.


So, face yourself now and often, and remember not to identify as emotion, as emotions are fleeting. We feel emotions; however, emotions are not our identity! We often attach to them because it is easy to identify with them. The real challenge is working through the emotions or getting to the state of the equanimous mind, thus, never having to let them go in the first place because you are never attaching to them.


Remember, these are outside forces.


They are not ‘you’, as much as they will attempt to convince you otherwise. The more we become the witness, the more we develop the ability to become actionary, thus refining ourselves. We must see the separation to become detached from these outside forces and the aspects of ego.


The entities are not ours to hold onto, though so often we do hold onto them. It is quite possible to convince someone that they and the emotion are not separate from each other. As a result of experience, we can quickly identify as the emotional entity when lacking understanding.

 

Today, we give these energies verbal recognition, names from words, and words do not convey emotion. They describe and perceptually define. There are, however, some emotionally intelligent verbal and written languages that can convey emotion to a certain extent. Though, to be able to express this emotional language fluently, it is expressed and felt. Emotions have an electromagnetic body and the more fuel it is given the more it grows energetically.


Examples from our everyday language show the underlying belief of identification with an emotional state. For example, ‘I’m depressed,’ rather than, ‘I’m feeling depressed’, ‘I’m experiencing about of depression,’ or ‘I feel low.’ Romance languages tend to use the translation, ‘I have sadness,’ rather than, ‘I am sad.’ We also tend to relate ‘I am angry,’ rather than, ‘I am experiencing anger’.

‘I am’... plus any of the emotional or sensational states is identifying with our state of being from experience, identifying with that possession of ego. Laziness in language often places a form of a spell over ourselves.


We are not our emotions, just as a person is not his or her depression. An emotional state such as depression is just an experience, transient, fleeting—if we motivate ourselves to let it go and do not build it into a part of who we believe we are.


It is an experience as the identifying self is a witness and the means of physical expression. Though the longer you hold on to it or identify self as it, the longer the entity feeds on you and the stronger it may get, in turn weakening your soul’s energetic body and stripping you of vitality. It is something like a fungus attaching to a bark of a living tree. In time, it saps the tree of its true essence and energy, the fungus taking over. The fungus is not the tree and never will be. It is something to detach and to identify as separate from the tree.


Control over the vehicle disconnects from the soul and grows weakened by emotions such as depression, anger, jealousy, sorrow, etc. In that state of surrender where we give in fully to the reactionary state, when that particular entity has taken control over our driver’s seat, it is a possession to varying levels.


The entities are attempting to convince you of the myth that you and the emotion are the same, and there are times in life when we begin to believe it, so creating a false belief structure. It is essential to remember that we are not the emotion. Emotions come and go, unless we hold onto them as though they are a part of who we are.


Even though it may be very confusing when entangled in emotions, we must stay strong and not attach to them. It is essential to remember this too shall pass. View them as guests in our host vessel and learn to just bear witness to the experience without judgment or reaction. Be with the experience without trying to grasp or reject it.


A significant entity to note is the consumption demon as it appears to be one entity but is usually a group of various entities working together. The consumption demon gang is where addiction is fueled, breeding into addiction-based diseases such as alcoholism, drug addiction and sex addiction. This includes any form of addictive behavior or patterns.


We could use lust as an example of a primarily driven emotion that could range from 1-10, 1 being an irritation, to 10 being rage or even torment. The entity of lust weakens the energetic body, opening a doorway for other entities to climb aboard such as vanity, unruliness, seduction, obsession, anger, hostility, bitterness, hate, scorn, loathing, contempt, resentment, wrath, etc., as it grows in strength.


Some more examples of combinations:


- Addiction - abuse, aggression, anger, arrogance, baseness, dissatisfaction, hurt
- Seeking fame - pride, envy, vanity, arrogance
- Sex addict - lust, abuse, aggression, anger, dissatisfaction, disrespect, hurt, humiliation, sadism


Unrecognized or unmet needs or desires within us often become trapped when there is no healthy outlet. These needs can keep welling up, even if we are unable to recognize our own needs. It can lead to uncontrollable outbursts of emotion or a state of numbness or
indifference.


This emotional energy can build up and leak or burst out in an explosion of emotion ranging in the spectrum. Emotions can be out of control to a point you feel unable to stop yourself, even blacking out and triggering memory loss. It can crescendo to a point where you may see the actions of the vessel but have lost control over the faculties. The loss of self from a lack of exerted willpower over an extended amount of time gives rise to impulsive behaviors, thereby allowing these entities possession.


You can express your needs in a healthy way if you know what they are. We must not allow a build-up of these energies. When left to their own devices, they often will fester and grow to incite you to act out.


Always assess whether your environment is healthy.
Once you learn the tools for spiritual and mental development, test your progress in a chaotic environment so you can discover what energies you need to refine. This matter phase is a school, and if you are not working on refining yourself, you are ditching school and are going to have trouble passing your exams.


We are what we feed ourselves, as our self-talk, internal dialog, social media, television, movies, radio, and the people we surround ourselves with is all food we ingest. Thoughts affect the internal systems of the body. The energy brought in grows in a process, the different forms of energy either strengthening or weakening the internal systems.

 

What we plant in our proverbial gardens and what we intake will be what grows there. So, when we are giving ourselves positive and healthy inputs, this makes us healthier with a higher vibrational magnetic energy field.


When you engage with horror or violent information such as war, fear, movies, negative music, an oppressive job (physically, mentally, or spiritually), etc., it depresses your system. In contrast, kindness, love, charity, generosity, comedy, fantasy-type movies, or inspiring music can uplift your system. The human system reacts and processes the input, affecting brain chemistry and body function.


Emotion being a form of energy is welled, harnessed, and directed in advanced meditation practices to achieve and activate higher levels of awareness, often in conjunction with raising Kundalini energy.


Love


According to the true definition, love is not an emotion. It is a state of being outside of the spectrum of like vs. dislike and pleasure vs. displeasure. It is a state of pure acceptance and non-judgment. To be love rather than to need love. To acknowledge rather than needing to be acknowledged, coming from an understanding position rather than needing to receive understanding.

 

Love is a state of being, often confused with an emotional state of joy.
These energetic entities do not feed on love as love is neutral. The fact it has no judgment or  destination in mind is what renders it less of an emotion, more the state of being as indicated above.

 

It is interesting that a large percentage of people who have experienced the out-of-body state achieved by astral projection, ‘return’ with a different view of ‘love’ than the view people usually take. These individuals often speak of being love, of feeling they are love, becoming love, experiencing love as everything and everything as love. Love is the aspirational state of being we rarely learn to achieve here in our earthly lifetimes. It is a pure state, untainted.


Love is also a virtue. Therefore, if what one considers ‘love’ is imbued with any of the 108, it is not pure or true love, for love has no attachments. Love is outside of personal gain and ego. It is selfless, all-encompassing, allowing freedom of passage to flow.


In the following sections of this chapter, I will examine different emotional dynamics to broaden perspective on the topic. This should assist you to understand how emotion and ego—from attachment to emotion—sit at the core of identification, in relating to self from a perspective of I.


Group Emotion


Group emotion can be a dynamic process of an elusive emotional state, which may influence the members’ feelings and behaviors.


You are likely to feel, think and act differently in the group dynamic than you would if apart from it.


The attachment of the desire to belong and to experience acceptance from others, combined with other factors such as the uniform thoughts and feelings emanating from a group dynamic, can cause people to act in more extreme manners. This causes the emotional state of the group to intensify, often leading to the members being emotionally and reactionarily driven.

 

The group may feel more homogeneously highly charged as a result, the more disparate views of its individual members coming less to the fore than if they were not present in the group. People hold back less in a group, becoming what some may call uninhibited or disinhibited, and this amplified emotional state makes individuals more vulnerable to emotional entities.


Indeed, all group settings of amplified emotion are a vast energy source for these emotional entities which feed on both positive and negative emotions in an attached state.


Emoting Emotions


Each of us has been guilty of emoting as this is our first physical language. It is an outward display of emotion, whether true or false. Those who ‘wear their heart on their sleeve,’ are emoting in that action and projecting emotions at others.


Without this innate ability, we would not be able to demonstrate our needs before we are able to access verbal communication. Later in life, as we mature, we have learned that emoting can be used as a tool to achieve goals. When words sometimes fail, emoting backs us up.
We can emote consciously or unconsciously, similarly to the variants of the psychic vampires discussed in an earlier chapter, thus making it a nonverbal emotional form of communication.


Why do we emote?


We emote in an attempt to connect to another in a way that words alone could not or were not achieving, to trigger a return of emotional response for whatever form of manipulation or validation. As such, you could say it is a ‘trick up the sleeve’ of manipulators especially—though people do not always emote with manipulative intent, even if this happens to be the outcome more often than not.


Emoting is, in part, a leak of energy; emotions are energy and we are energetic beings. Finding these leaks and sealing them so we do not waste our energy is a part of strengthening the energetic body. Since energy is the only currency that matters after death, it is wise to learn to conserve and not spend energetic currency frivolously.

The 108 aspects of ego use emoting as a form of bait, to trigger a response from any living thing that will have a response to offer, including other humans, animals, plants, and other emotionally affected life forms. Spending time around an animal, you may have witnessed that they can and often do emote just like humans. It is easy to give in to someone or to an animal that is emoting. In some situations, emoting causes such a show of emotion that it is hard to cope with viewing it, such as when people break down in hysterical crying or screaming. Under such pressure, the recipient of the show of emoting may simply concede defeat.


Emoting can also herald the end to a lot of romantic relationships and friendships. When someone has worked hard to regulate their own emotions, facing someone who over-emotes is a trying scenario and will tend to feel manipulative. The ‘recipient’ or viewer may also
feel the person has no self-control, not an appealing trait in anyone.


Most often, habits of emoting come from developed feelings over time, emanating from past experiences in which emoting developed as learned behavior. If the only way anyone ever listens to you is when you burst into tears, then even at a subconscious level, this may be your go-to emotion to try and get what you want from others.

 

It is confusing when that emoting does not work and drivesaway the other. This is because emoting is a language all of its own and not every adult speaks that same language now. We commune on different levels, and emoting is only one part of how we get our point across. When it dominates, it will often result in the self-distancing of others by appearing demanding, petulant, self-centered and immature.


Some emoting is useful and natural but many phrases hint at a need to emote less; these show that many people are uncomfortable in its presence:
Tone it down
Rein it in
Put a lid on it
Keep your emotions in check

Put on a brave face
Men don’t cry, etc.

 


Feelings


Feelings are different from emotions in that they result from emotional imprints caused by reactions.


Emotions are triggered by experiences, whereas feelings arise from the mental processing of those emotions from a personal perception of accrued personal emotional experiences. Separate people may experience a similar emotional experience, though each may develop different feelings associated with that emotional experience.


Emotions are universal, while feelings are personal interpretations stemming from a pattern of learned behaviors. However, unresolved trauma of the experience may be constantly renewed due to a form of self- or ego preservation.


Unresolved feelings of trauma are not necessarily (or always) from fixation but from the personal perceptual distortion from imprint residues in the psyche, as a result of experiences themselves. As long as these remain unresolved, the imprints will create an imbalance, again drawing on learned reactionary behavior programming.


We need to address these by deprogramming or reprogramming ourselves to become in harmony with ourselves and others. To not live reactionarily to our past experiences, we must not allow the past to define us in present or future actions.


Even though one may suppress traumatic emotional experiences, the influence of the experience will remain. Moreover, they will stay at the deepest levels of the mind and body all the way down to coding within our DNA. We can pass these down genetically, as even memories and emotional imprints are stored and passed along to offspring through the single-strand RNA.


If we wish to free ourselves of these burdens, we must put in the work to eradicate traumas from our bodies via purposeful action.

We can start doing this by working and living a path from the heart in the intention for betterment of all life, embracing humility and being honest with ourselves and others. We must utilize forgiveness with a willingness to understand others through the path of self-reflection. Similarly, to love without attachments can guide a path to freedom from suffering.

 

The effect of trauma is expressed in a variety of ways; ultimately, we are the ones who must silence the dialogue coming from it, as no one else can do our work for us.

 

With willpower, self-reflection and resolve, you too can reprogram your ingrained reaction-based feelings to achieve balance and harmony within your system, and that will then overflow from you.


In this, we learn that suffering is a path to self-awareness. As we rarely grow in times of contentedness, suffering often leads one to seek liberation, always starts with the development of self-awareness.


Suffering, a Path to Self-Awareness


As difficult as this may be to swallow, suffering plays a vital and integral role in spiritual evolution in so many ways. We rarely grow in times of contentment as a stagnant soul is a restless soul.

That stagnation causes the energetic body and the physical body’s energetic system to become depressed over time.


There are many other forms of energetic draining that I cover in this book, and others that I have not.


Suffering ensues from many forms, such as senses, emotions and hardships. Our perception of those experiences can become deeply embedded into the psyche.


Suffering leads to the desire to learn how to release the pain, turmoil, and trauma, in turn leading toward the search for a way out, often leading to self-reflection. When the suffering becomes unbearable, this is when choices appear. Without the suffering, therefore, many pivotal and healthy choices would not be realized and faced.

Suicide has become a false method of escape. To take one’s own life is not an escape; one would just be starting as a new character. Life can be tough sometimes, and the turmoil that seems unbearable shall pass. This is what the desperate person needs to remember, and instead of taking suicide as a way out—which it is not—learn to chip away at the negative aspects of self and ego, to make small gains. In time, the small gains turn slowly toward a more positive mindset, and with positive mindset comes positive energy and a gradual reversal of fortune and perceptions.


One can give up all hope by surrendering (a form of hiding) to an, ‘I do not want to drive anymore’ mindset, i.e., giving up on life. In giving over the proverbial wheel, you are allowing your vessel to become completely vulnerable. That is a point at which your energetic soul hides and loses itself. You can pull yourself out of these states since one constant you can count on is change, and to know that suffering is a choice.


You can just accept the possible false belief system you have created for yourself and believe you are always going to be that way (clinically diagnosed). Another choice would be that you can do something about it by exploring avenues out of suffering.


We have all heard the accounts of people who were diagnosed with some ‘incurable’ or otherwise insufferable disease but made it their mission to keep looking for the specialists, the information, the solution. Not the cure, note—but the way to make it more tenable for them. These are the people who set up research foundations and charities, who go on sponsored walks to raise funds, and who set up discussion groups to meet others with the same disease.


These are the people who metaphorically keep on banging on the door of the hospital asking for more and more insight into their issues—because they are not prepared to give up. They are going to explore every avenue out of their suffering. And if no avenue exists, they will try to forge a way toward something existing, setting it up themselves.
Giving up is never the easy way. It causes the greatest suffering, without any doubt.

We need to learn the causes of suffering and our role in learning since the equanimous mind can guide one out of the suffering of emotional turmoil. The emotional or sensational experience is like a gust of wind passing through unable to be held, or visitors passing by, with just the briefest ‘hi’.


When we can let go of that which does not serve us and instead focus on charity, humility, love, compassion, truth, knowledge, gratitude, and purpose, life’s experience can flip from dissatisfaction to satisfaction. And it can happen in a breath, in a moment, in the briefest time.


Avoiding emotions is not the point. And this is another topic to consider; we all know people who, when something difficult crops up, say, ‘Oh, let’s not talk about it!’ as if the not talking about it makes it non-existent. The issue will always be there, and the not talking about it will magnify it to the point of suffering.


However, emotions should not control you. Instead, we can productively work on non-reaction, a form of purposeful action whereby you experience the sensation, acknowledge it, face it—and then let it go.


Suffering can lead someone to be so desperate for an escape that they will their desire into existence. This can occur even to a point where the energetic body astral projects from the physical body to the astral plane, or the singular eye (third eye) opens, and you see or
travel to that desire.


Suffering can induce these abilities if the desire is strong enough. It may even occur unknowingly, as you may not even understand what the experience was if your perception is misaligned. If your spirit body is projected (astral projection) but you are not ready to perceive, you may find yourself tumbling or falling, unable to witness what is around you, which can be confusing.


It is through suffering that we seek. Suffering is a route to awareness, like a gateway drug. It is the spark that ignites the flame of refinement.

Here is a passage that I have found enlightening in what we call my, such as ‘my body’ or any other ‘my’ ideal as these notions lead to suffering. But, becoming aware of ourselves dissolves the held perception of my and I.


Becoming Aware of ‘Oneself’


It’s one of the most indispensable things to do if one wants to succeed in having self-control and even a limited self-knowledge: to be able to localise one’s consciousness and move it about in the different parts of one’s being, in such a way as to distinguish between one’s consciousness and one’s thoughts, feelings, impulses, become aware of what the consciousness is in itself. And in this way one can learn how to shift it: one can put your consciousness in the body, put it in the vital, put it in the psychic (that’s the best place to put it in); one can put one’s consciousness in the mind, can raise it above the mind, and with one’s consciousness one can go into all the regions of the universe.
But first of all, one must know what your consciousness is, that is, become conscious of one’s consciousness, localise it. And for this there are many exercises. One of them is very well known, it is to observe oneself and watch oneself living, and then see whether it is really the body which is the consciousness of the being, what one calls ‘myself’; and then when one has realised that it is not at all the body, that the body expresses something else, then one searches in his impulses, emotions, to see whether it’s that, and again one finds out that it is not that; and then one seeks in his thoughts, whether the thought is truly himself, what he calls ‘myself’, and at the end of a very short time one becomes aware: “No, I am thinking, therefore ‘myself’ is different from my thoughts.”
And so, by progressive eliminations one succeeds in entering into contact with something, something which gives you the impression of being -- “Yes, that’s ‘myself’. And this something I can move around, I can move it from my body to my vital, to my mind, I can even, if I am very ... how to put it? ... very practiced in moving it, I can move it into other people, and it’s in this way that I can identify myself with things and people. I can with the help of my aspiration make it come out of my human form, rise above toward regions which are not longer this little body at all and what it contains.
And so one begins to understand what one’s consciousness is; and it’s after that that one can say, “Good, I shall unite my consciousness with my psychic being and shall leave it there, so that it may be in harmony with the Divine.” Or else, “If by this exercise of rising above my faculties of thinking and my intellect I can enter a region of pure light, pure knowledge ...”, then one can put his consciousness there and live like that, in a luminoussplendour which is above the physical form.

But first this consciousness must be mobile, and one must know how to distinguish it from the other parts of the being which in fact are its instruments, its modes of expression. The consciousness must make use of these things, and you should not mistake these things for the consciousness. You put the consciousness in these things, so you become conscious of your body, conscious of your vital, conscious of your mind, conscious of all your activities
through your will for identification. But for this, first you must be sure that your consciousness is not entangled, mixed, or joined, so to say, with all these things. It must not take them for
itself, must not be mistaken.
When one thinks of oneself (obviously out of millions of men perhaps there are not ten who do otherwise), one thinks “Myself... that’s my body, that’s what I call ‘myself ’, what’s like this. And so, I am like that; and then my neighbour, he also is the body. When I speak of another person, I speak of his body.” And so, as long as one is in this state, one is the plaything of all
possible movements and has no self-control. The body is the last instrument and yet it’s this which one calls ‘myself ’ most of the time, unless one has begun to reflect.”[29]
~ Sri Aurobindo, Mother

In becoming aware of oneself, we need to learn what we are not! One of the ways to start that journey is to find that emotion is ephemeral like an itch—as it comes and goes.


A Zen disciple approached his teacher. “Master, I have an uncontrollable temper. Can you help me overcome it?” “Hmm, that’s strange. Can you show it to me?” asked the master. “Not right now.” “Why not?” “It occurs suddenly.”
“Then it can’t be a part of your true nature,” said the master. “If that were the case, you wouldn’t have any difficulty in showing it! Why do you allow something that isn’t yours to worry you?”
Thereafter, the master’s words would come back to the student whenever his temper rose. Soon, he learned to check his anger and developed a placid temperament.[30]
~ Zen Story

 

Desire is the root of all suffering, but it is also what drives existence from a state of boundless love. Everything within you, including all the cells that combine to form you, have desire.


That is what holds your physical body together and allows it to function and allows the same from the whole multiverse for that matter. Viewing desire as solely a negative is missing the point of it all, as we wouldn’t be here if consciousness didn’t have a desire to express itself. Except that conscious desire is purposeful with full intent to experience everything, as your true desire is not for just more, it’s for everything, a desire to be boundless.


Change the object of desire from reactionary to purposeful action, and you learn how to truly live and bring Heaven to Earth.


An easy way to decipher the difference between reactionary desire and purposeful action of desire is to ask: is it based in the betterment of all kind, from a state of emotional intelligence, and intent on what is being created through words and actions, rather than an ineptitude of an ego-based attitude where one is just looking solely to suit their own needs?


When physicality is all you know, there’s bound to be suffering, as this is a bound state. The true aspect of you is unbound and cannot be bound by physicality.


Unbind your limitless potential by understanding the nature of ego and desire. It is important to remember the polarities and your ability to either respond pleasantly or unpleasantly. When you act or react, this is you responding, not one of the entities of the 108, and
having accountability to that response or action. Your will is your power and responsibility to act and engage life fully, with the intent of creating the world you wish to create.


Our lives become beautiful not because we are perfect.
Our lives become beautiful because we put our heart into
whatever we do. [31]
~ Sadhguru


As we have learned, our emotions are not us. We can start witnessing them from a new perspective and deliberately exploring them without these being a controlling factor since when we are triggered and reactionary in an emotional state, most often, the mind becomes
clouded and our judgment impaired.


By bringing back and exploring an emotional state, we may better explore what we are not to better learn what we are. This exploration I refer to as emotional welling.


Emotional Welling


To practice emotional welling is to bring up an emotion with the intent to better familiarize oneself with the emotion and these entities.


As we can be clouded and lose focus when emotional, it is better to practice this when you are not already in a high emotional or reactionary state.

When intentionally drawing in this emotional language (these emotional entities), think only of the breath, clear your mind to be with the feeling, and draw the emotion into yourself.
Part of learning this emotional language is recalling how it felt in a prior experience and bringing it back at will. Allow it to course through you with no attachment, just the playful exploration and witnessing of the emotion.


This emotional language is expressed through reaction as well as purposeful action. To engage the emotional language, you must understand the vibrational frequency and feeling that resonates through you when you are experiencing a particular emotional state. Each emotional entity is unique by the frequency at which it vibrates or resonates, denoted by the vibrational feeling you feel as it courses through you. When you learn the unique vibration of one of the entities, that is that entity’s Source-given name.


(For more advanced practitioners, you may also assign a visual pattern (sigil), and or hand mudra for recall, which can bring things into a much more pinpointed mental focus. I will go more into this in future books.)


When emotionally welling an emotion, it will run its course through the body to the degree welled. Emotional welling often triggers a hot or cold feeling; for example, you may feel a warm, magnetic sensation coming from the stomach or heart connected to warming emotions. Alternatively, a cooling emotion permeates a coolness through the body. They are individual to each emotional state of feeling.


With practice, we can intensify the emotional vibration coursing through ourselves. When practicing from a trained non-reactionary state, it becomes easier to control the emotional states that are to be emotionally welled. Welling from a state not clouded by triggered reactionary emotions is key. Bringing specific emotions purposely into focus—rather than from a trigger—will assist us from looking outward of ourselves, so that we may examine and witness the emotion without distraction.

Since this book is about the Dark Kingdom and the 108 monsters within, we have discussed a lot about darkness. Also undertake emotional welling with positive emotions, however, such as love, joy, gratitude, compassion, awe, kindness, satisfaction, admiration, revelry, etc.

Intentionally directed emotion produces an energetic current that can be used to give the energetic and physical body a proverbial jump start; this utilization of emotion becomes vital in full meditations to set your magnetic marker to an abundant energy source by getting the chakras moving properly, as well as getting the energetic system to eventually fully activate, which plays a role in polarizing and syncing the two hemispheres of the body and brain.


There is a stage above emotional welling that I call emotional harnessing.
Here, one not only witnesses and explores these emotional states but then takes the vibration (vibrational feeling) of the emotion welled and condenses it to a singular area or point and can purposefully move it around. This is a starting point in emotional harnessing.


Emotional Harnessing


Once you understand emotional welling and emotional intelligence, the next stage is harnessing. We emotionally well to purposefully conjure, to harness. While welling means to consciously and with intent bring in the energy of an emotion, harnessing is directing the
welled emotional energy into a single point.


We should aim for the eradication of all defilements through wisdom, and this practice of emotional harnessing is one of the ways to cultivate this wisdom.


We can only fully reside above the 108 aspects of ego through meditation and breathing practices, in which you may learn to reach the stage of no-mind, witness emptiness, and engage compassion and the equanimous mind.

A Warning!


The tests of the 108, in that of willpower, become increasingly more challenging. Do not jump ahead into harnessing without habitually living an ethical code of conduct, like that of developed integrity of the virtuous Middle Way path.

 

This occurs when you can maintain an empty mind (a non-thinking state) as well as having learned to witness without attachment.


Practice virtue before engaging in the stage of practices above emotional welling (such as emotional harnessing) as this can be dangerous for those who have not developed virtue.


There is a great variation of levels within this practice and the aspects of ego can make the morally undeveloped (the weak in spirit) more susceptible to attaching to the experience. This makes it dangerous, as it is easier for the weak in spirit to fall prey and to be lured into a dark path (evil ways). The meek (weak in spirit) have inherited the earth!


It is essential to remember:


1. These entities of ego are what we are attached to, which cast us out of the phase of equanimity in the first place, so they’ve got some pull.
2. If someone does not have control over their mind or emotions, they are throwing energy around unharnessed, therefore, unknowingly making a mess (chaos) of things. These are personal energy leaks.


To learn to harness is to fully embrace it, rather than rejecting it, for it to no longer be an energy leak and thereby sealing the vessel. What I am sharing is not black magick, but it is necessary to learn full equanimity. We tend to only be as light as the darkness we face and turn into light, as this is working on a stage of illumination.


I will repeat, for your own sake, be sure to walk and live the path of virtue and equanimity before engaging in the practice of harnessing aspects of the 108. This is allowing yourself to be filled with a horrifying demonic entity, in effect becoming it by allowing it to course through oneself in purposeful action. You must engage the duality in a blended Christ/Buddha state along with this demon state.


As that blended deity, you may transform the individual aspects of the 108, such as greed, hate, lust, or any idiocy into new awareness and wisdom. This happens through a form of moral inversion from light to dark to illumination, the Middle Way in equanimity. To
be in this world but not of it. This is a form of atonement as one is harmonizing the two states.


When you harness these demonic energetic entities within a path of virtue, you may be intently transforming those aspects of ego into wisdom, thus, dissolving the attachment through communing, rather than rejecting, the darkness.


Do this in an ‘unflinching’ state while witnessing aspects of ego and mixing it with equanimity based upon knowledge and virtue, and a grandeur of conception is expressed by this simple execution.
This turns it around into dissolving that aspect of ego.
This is well described in this short excerpt from the Venerable Master Hua on the Shurangama Sutra - the Fifty Skandha-Demon States 1968 at the Buddhist Lecture Hall, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.


Sutra:


Further, when his mind completely merges with emptiness, his four limbs will suddenly become like grass or wood, devoid of sensation even when burned by fire or cut with a knife. The burning of fire will not make his limbs hot, and even when his flesh is cut, it will be like wood being whittled.

This state is called “the merging of external states and the blending of the four elements into a uniform substance.” It is a temporary state and does not indicate sagehood. If he does not think he has become a sage, then this will be a good state. But if he considers himself a sage, then he will be vulnerable to the demons› influence.


Further, when his mind completely merges with emptiness you may say that the mind exists, yet it doesn’t; you may say it doesn’t exist, yet it does. His four limbs will suddenly become like grass or wood, devoid of sensation even when burned by fire or cut with a knife. If you cut his arms or legs with a knife or burn them with fire, he will not feel any pain or discomfort. The burning of fire will not make his limbs hot. When you try to burn them, they won’t even become hot. And even when his flesh is cut, it will be like wood being whittled. If you slice off the flesh from his arms and legs, it will be just like shaving wood. He will feel no pain or irritation.


This state is called “the merging of external states and the blending of the four elements into a uniform substance.” Defiled external states will come together, and the natures of earth, water, fire, and air will become a single substance. However, it is a temporary state, an occasional experience, and does not indicate sage hood. Do not think you have realized sage hood.


If he does not think he has become a sage, then this will be a good state. But if he considers himself a sage and becomes self-satisfied and haughty, then he will be vulnerable to the demons’ influence. You will be attacked and surrounded by hordes of deviant beings.[32]


This goes on for about forty-eight more states to overcome, in which you can become vulnerable to states of ego, the demons. This is advanced but we need to bring it into light for the development of Samadhi, referring to the development of a luminous mind which is equanimous and mindful.


To develop equanimity, it is imperative to understand polarities, as the polarities are keys to understanding mysteries of the universe.

Polarities


987654321 - 0 + 123456789


The Law of Polarity states that everything has an opposite.

 

For example: positive and negative; light and darkness; hot and cold; left and right; front and back; up and down; in and out; etc. The body is broken down into dualistic polarities of male and female, then into the two hemispheres of the brain and then divided down the center of the body from top-down as well as front to back.


These dualities are apparent in nature and apply to phases of reality in what we can see and that which we typically do not see.


Polarities of energy flow through everything, this quantum energy infusing reality, the energy’s ebb and flow running through all physical creatures during their journey from birth to death and beyond.


This energy cannot be destroyed, only converted. Each polarity exists as an antithesis to the other, nature being based on a dual system of complementary opposites, so-called antagonists.


One pole could not exist without the other, and with the two, we end up with a neutral state composed equally of yin and yang (positive and negative). They are, in fact, halves of a whole.


Their polarity is not a sign of opposition but rather of two integral aspects of a single dualistic cycle.


Every cell and living organism is affected by this polarity as it governs all and is always in motion. We see duality all around us. The four seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter are prime examples of polarities. Spring where life blooms forth transitions into the heat of
summer, which transitions into fall where much of life starts recessing in preparation for the cold of winter. Then a new cycle begins.


Each season perpetually exists, while its polar opposite is expressed on the opposite side of the planet. There never is a time where one side of the polarities does not exist, as it exists with the ebb and flow of nature. They each exist simultaneously at an individual phase of
expression. All is connected as they are all a part of the seasonal polarity thread. All parts of the same though separated by phases, such as the cosmic inhalation and exhalation.

 

The law of positive electricity is like that of the cosmic inhalation, a force generated against pressure resistance. Positive Intensity increases with contraction due to pressure resistance in streams flowing in opposite direction positive electricity Is the accumulation absorbing endothermic force of contraction which seeks higher pressures.
The law of negative electricity is like that of the cosmic exhalation, a force radiated in the direction of pressure assistance. Negative intensity decreases with expansion due to pressure assistance in streams flowing in the same direction. Negative electricity is dissipating, separating exothermic force of expansion which seeks lower pressure.[33]
~ Walter Russell

 


These polarities apply to all sensations as well as emotions with their corresponding feelings. Equanimity is the neutral center of each of the emotional and sensational threads. Pleasure and displeasure are of the same thread in which there is no separation, only in the level of degree expressed. Temperature also demonstrates the polarities as it is one thread. There exist varying degrees of temperature from neutral (to you, your normal body temperature) to hot and cold.


Indifference and hate are the same, just as we find like and dislike on each side to equanimity (neutrality), which is at the mid-point of indifference and hate — two sides with shade in the middle. There is only one thread according to which to interpret experiences, rather than two separate threads. They are two extremes of the same thing at varying degrees.


These energetic emotional entities are neither good nor bad. Existing beyond that construct, they just are what they are. They serve a purpose to drive suffering, to spark the flame of desire for change and eventually, the actions to achieve it. While they bring with them suffering, they also light the way for the growth of awareness.

 

We may perceive them as positive, negative, or from a neutral state. It is all about perception. We all play a part in a playful experience where we can either imprint our desired experience or, in an unaware state, be imprinted upon. There is a flow, but one can be the current, fight the current, or simply just be in equanimity in each moment.

 

You can engage life like the extremes of the seasons, either hot or cold, or learn to engage living like the neutral seasons, allowing the hot and cold emotional seasons to pass like wind blowing by. All things do pass, allowing new to spring forth, becoming a reminder that though you may have an extremely high or low experience of an emotional state, whether pleasurable or unpleasurable, this too shall pass, and a new emotion (season) will come.

This is becoming affectionately unattached.
You still feel emotions as they come and go, except without attaching by removing expectations and judgments with no need for validation or acceptance from an outside source; thus, forming equanimity. You now just recognize the emotion for what it is—and
let it go.


These entities are, however, essential and serve their purpose, and although pesky instigators, they are also valuable teachers. We are all a small part of a larger whole. Understanding the principles of good and bad, positive and negative, or yin and yang will enable you to use and control the polarities to your benefit and, hopefully, that of
others.


For the human experience, when you understand the principles of polarities and have learned to work them within yourself, this will enable you to use and control the polarities more efficiently. To be able to move through or manipulate them at will, when skilled, can
even temporarily manipulate the polarity of a reactionary individual through emotional intelligence.


Creation is but a swing of the cosmic pendulum from inertia
through energy and back again to inertion forever and ever. it is but a series of opposing Pulsations of action and reaction, integration and disintegration gravitation and radiation appearance and disappearance.[34]
~ Walter Russell

 


In the war between light, dark, or neutral, pick a side!


A few years ago, I was working neutral, then I reached a point of understanding and attached purposefully with intent as a messenger to align with my soul path. The light and dark are two sides of the same coin, positive and negative.


Let me stress here, you do not need to attach to a side, for that is in of itself attaching!
You may exit!


Many are here to spread the same word and do the work to be the equal balance. Those who expand evolve spiritual DNA from the process. Choose to expand yourself by releasing all bonds of positive and negative, good and bad! This is vital to truly let go. Good, bad—same thread, remember! Remember too, the polarity stream is not truly a duality, it is a trinity, a holy trinity, with neutral being the stillness and Source.


Neutral allows you to disconnect from that good-bad duality, instead of being the trinity. If you reject evil, you are clinging or rejecting! Messengers come here for a time to cling and reject for you. Let go; we are one in this system, and we’ve got you.


There are multiple truths, just as there rages a war between light and dark. That is true in this phase, but you do not need to be a part of this phase, as there are those who live within but still outside of this phase, beyond the pull of the tides.


The big distraction is the war between light and dark, ‘good and evil’. The polarities provide many clues to understanding some of the mysteries of the Verse.

The key 123456789 - 0 + 123456789


0 is the Source from which it all emanates, so to return, find 0 (neutrality) within yourself.
Negative being the downward stream, positive is the friction moving up the negative current in a form of chasing its own tail, for the two are but one stream. If the positive would stop the friction of movement, it would become the neutral stream.

 

Of the good in you I can speak, but not of the evil. For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst? Verily when good is hungry it seeks food even in dark caves, and
when it thirsts it drinks even of dead waters. You are good when you are one with yourself.
Yet when you are not one with yourself you are not evil. For a divided house is not a den of thieves; it is only a divided house. And a ship without rudder may wander aimlessly among
perilous isles yet sink not to the bottom.[35]
~ Kahlil Gibran


The polarities of emotion and sensation to which we attach and relate in the construct of individual ‘I’ tie to ego.


So, let’s explore this further.


Ego


Ego is the identification in relating to self from a perspective of I, a separate aspect in existence but hiding as the true self. Ego is the spiritual fruit already eaten, that has cast us out of the higher vibrational kingdoms, thrusting us into this denser vibrational kingdom.
It is like eating a meal with a parasite in it (ego is the parasite), only to find the parasite convinces you that it is now you.

 

Ego and its relation to the emotional energetic entities are aspects of the same, each a gatekeeper of each of the 108 primary energy nodes. We give power over to these gatekeepers or regain it through equanimity.

 

Throughout life, mental imprints of emotional and sensational experiences accumulate and are not thoroughly experienced and moved through. This stack-up condenses, making the energetic body vibrationally denser an heavier, more of a burden and a heavy weight transferred and shared by the physical body.

 

The weight of perceived burdens, if held captive, can feel like carrying the weight of the world, weighing you down, thus, becoming condensed lowers vibrational frequency.


The ego changes all the time, it has every kind of illusion, but the Self is as it is, there is nothing we can alter in it.[36]
~ Carl Jung


To dissolve attachment to the emotional energetic entities is to dissolve the ego, which in whole is the 108 aspects of lunar ego. Breaking the seals of ego (forbidden fruits) by fasting from earthly desires, changes your vibrational frequency to that of a higher vibration, opening those corresponding energy gates and sealing the vessel of energy leaks.
I feel the ego, but I know the ego is not I, as there is no independent I.
To say that the mind, or the mind-objects, or the mind consciousness constitute the Ego: such an assertion is unfounded. For an arising and a passing away is seen there; and seeing the arising and passing away of these things, one should come to the conclusion that one’s Ego arises and passes away.

 

Now, if someone should say that feeling is his Ego, he should be answered thus: There are three kinds of feeling; pleasurable, painful, and indifferent feeling. Which of these three feelings now do you consider as your Ego? At the moment namely of experiencing one of these feelings, one does not experience the other two. These three kinds of feeling are impermanent, of dependent origin, are subject to decay and dissolution, to fading
away and extinction. Whosoever, in experiencing one of these
feelings, thinks that this is his Ego, will, after the extinction of
that feeling, admit that his Ego has come dissolved. And thus he
will consider his Ego already in his present life as impermanent,
mixed up with pleasure and pain subject to rising and passing
away.[37]
~ Buddha Sakyamuni,


The Ego is a Puzzle


The ego is a puzzle. It is something like darkness – which you
can see, which you can feel, which can obstruct your way but
which does not exist. It has no positivity. It is simply an absence,
an absence of light. The ego does not exist – how can
you surrender it? The ego is only an absence of awareness.
You cannot surrender ego, because it does not exist. You can
bring a little awareness, a little consciousness, a little light. Forget
completely about the ego; concentrate totally on bringing
alertness into your being. And the moment your consciousness
has become a flame, concentrated, you will not be able to find
the ego.[38]
~ Osho


We can witness the ego without identifying with it!
What has been coined as ego death is to be born again into the
light, shedding the shadow self, that of ego, the cleansing of the
energetic robe. It is one form of being reborn, and is the actual old
language meaning of born again, this being what grants us access to
the Heavens.
Assimilation of the shadow gives a man body, so to speak; the
animal sphere of instinct, as well as the primitive or archaic
psyche, emerge into the zone of consciousness and can no longer be repressed by fictions and illusions.[39]
~ Carl Jung


For an equilibrium does in fact exist between the psychic ego and non-ego, and that equilibrium is a religion, a “careful consideration” of ever-present unconscious forces which we neglect at our peril.[40]
~ Carl Jung


To dissolve the aspects of ego, one must develop neutrality, an equanimous state. This can be misunderstood as a state of indifference, which it is not.


So, let’s take a closer look at the two.


Neutral or Numb: The Equanimous Mind


On the quest to understand emotional states and polarity spectrums, like and dislike, pleasure and displeasure, there lies a neutral area which can be confused for a state of emotional numbness to experiences. Being in a state of emotional numbness is one of the 108 listed as Indifference.


Neutrality, the state of equanimity, is neither numb nor indifferent. It comes from an equanimous mind, the mind of true observance without judgment, and therefore is a desirable state not related to indifference.


Equanimity describes a complete openness to experience without being lost in reactions of emotions, feelings, and senses. It is more of witnessing with developed emotional intelligence, a state of humility, compassion, and kindness, free of (and not seeking) attachment or judgment of an outcome. It is a perfect unshakable balance of mind rooted in insight.


Equanimity is the state of being of Love.

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning
to see an imperfect person perfectly.[41]
~ Lao Tzu

 


Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces. [42]
~ Sigmund Freud


To develop the equanimous mind, we must learn emotional intelligence.


Emotional Intelligence


Emotional intelligence is a form of higher awareness, the cognitive ability of a developed capacity of self-awareness, as well as an awareness of others’ states of being.


It is the ability to express your emotional needs in a healthy, empathetic nature while maintaining discipline over your mental and emotional state through self-control. It means governing your mental, emotional, and sensory faculties to adapt to varying environments to
achieve personal goals, as well as the capacity to discern between different emotions with the ability to identify and define them.


Emotional intelligence also means a developed ability to use nonviolent communication to express needs while being empathetic to the needs of others. In proper communication, emotional intelligence is beneficial to both or all parties, working for the betterment
of all. One part of this is the capacity to use and harness emotions rather than to be used and controlled by them. In effect, it is the ability to well and use emotion at will.


There are several models of emotional intelligence, one of which is referred to as the mixed model, outlining five primary emotionally intelligent constructs as proposed by Daniel Goleman in ‘What Makes a Leader.’ 

The five constructs:


Self-awareness – The ability to know one’s emotions, strengths, weaknesses, drives, values, and goals, recognizing their impact on others while using gut feelings to guide decisions.


Self-regulation – Involves controlling or redirecting one’s disruptive emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances.


Social skill – Managing relationships to get along with others.


Empathy – Considering other people’s feelings, especially when making decisions.


Motivation – Being aware of what motivates other people. [43]


Another emotional intelligence model is the ‘Ability Model’ proposed by Peter Salovey and John Mayer, which presents that emotional intelligence includes four types of abilities:


Perceiving Emotions – The ability to detect and decipher emotions in faces, pictures, voices, and cultural artifacts — including the ability to identify one’s own emotions. Perceiving emotions represents a primary aspect of emotional intelligence, making all other processing of emotional information possible.


Using Emotions – The ability to harness emotions to facilitate cognitive activities, such as thinking and problem-solving. The emotionally intelligent person can capitalize fully on his or her changing moods to best fit the task at hand.


Understanding Emotions – The ability to comprehend emotional language and to appreciate complicated relationships among emotions. For example, understanding emotions encompasses sensitivity to slight variations between emotions and the ability to recognize and describe their evolution.

Managing Emotions – The ability to regulate emotions in both ourselves and in others. Therefore, an emotionally intelligent person can harness emotions, even negative ones, and manage them to achieve intended goals. [44]


The emotionally intelligent person understands and witnesses the polarities within themselves as well as in others and has learned to switch or control them at will. Usually, this is to achieve an intended goal to a degree of ability, outside of the reactionary state residing in conscious action.


Throughout this book, I describe the energetic emotional entities as an emotional language. The mastery of emotional intelligence is also the wielding and harnessing of this emotional language in a state of mastery and awareness.


Emotional intelligence involves developing a better understanding of others through self-reflection, learning the discipline of not attaching to others’ reactions or actions in a particular situation, without any need for validation. Just because you would do, act, or react a certain way does not mean you should allow yourself to become affected when others may not meet expectations. Keep in mind others are not here to live up to your expectations any more
than you are to live up to theirs, and the fewer expectations you have, the fewer there will be to attach to.


We all go through stages of mental and energetic growth, all experiencing growing pains and learning curves in which we do not always act according to our moral virtues. I can look back at a time where I would say, ‘How can I trust others if I can’t even trust myself
to do what is in my own best interest?’


A large percentage of people are self-serving; everything is about them, their needs, their desires, with a lack of thought for others. Indeed, we probably all know at least one person who does not even listen to us because they are too busy talking about themselves all
the time. This person does not even give him or herself the chance to be anything but self-serving since their ears and eyes are closed to all but their own perceived needs and wants.

Emotions and feelings change or fluctuate with time and experience, however.
Many people these days have a lack of emotional or mental training that has made them emotionally inept. Emotional ineptitude is when someone has yet to develop control over their emotional state, allowing their emotions to rule them, most often from a reactionary state and outside of accountability. It serves no one except those seeking to manipulate you. You may find it hard to believe this includes your own self.


Emotionally inept people are often offended quickly as they have yet to learn emotional restraint and responsibility! They often pawn responsibility outside of themselves and most often are consumed by aspects of ego as well as earthly desires. In this case, people can be like scorpions, having been conditioned to behave a certain way.

 

Do not blame a scorpion for stinging or a cat for hunting mice and birds as these behaviors are in its nature! Realizing that people can and will sting, can lead to less of an attachment to an outcome, thereby helping you to enjoy each moment rather than being stuck mentally in the past or future.


Being offended also serves no one, least of all you. It results in an unhappy, malign state of being which tends to fester and eat away at you. It is especially pointless in the context of loving relationships where one minute, you are offended by your partner and the next, you have made up again. It can better serve you to see the situation as it is (for what it is), accept it, observe it and wait for it to pass as it always does. When we are hurt, upset and offended by others it is usually because we expect something they do not give us (on this occasion, perhaps).


The solution to this is to stop expecting and to take what we are given for what it is. It is our ego crying out to be acknowledged when we feel the gift, the compliment, the amount of attention received from a loved one is insufficient. Acquiring greater emotional intelligence allows us to let others be who—and how—they are without being reactionary to the aspects that do not meet our needs.

Learn to relate to situational circumstances beyond your perceptual awareness, placing them into reflection for understanding through compassion and humility. In that reflection, know and be aware that you too have made mistakes, as we all have lived in a reactionary
state. Taking the time to see things from a second as well as a third-party perspective will help.


Furthermore, you may have made similar actionable mistakes, which can lead to an understanding of imperfection and not attaching your needs to others. Others’ needs and desires will not always line up with yours, so applying those expectations may only lead to
suffering.


Life is empty if it does not pursue transcendence, the realization of the being. This would not be possible without developing superior emotion, which humanizes science, sublimates art,
elevate philosophy and crystallizes mysticism.[45]
~ Samael Aun Weor


Self-Knowledge alone is the direct cause of Liberation.[46]
~ Atmabodha Sankaracharya,


The first necessity for obtaining self-knowledge is to become profoundly conscious of ignorance; to feel with every fiber of the heart that one is ceaselessly self-deceived. The second requisite is the still deeper conviction that such knowledge--such intuitive
and certain knowledge--can be obtained by effort. The third, and most important is an indomitable determination to obtain and face that knowledge. Self-knowledge of this kind is
unobtainable by what men usually call ‘self-analysis’. It is not reached by reasoning or by any brain process; for it is the awakening to consciousness of the Divine nature of man. To obtain
this knowledge is a greater achievement than to command the elements or to know the future.[47]
Helena P. Blavatsky

Extra notable mentions about emotions: Drugs and the Emotional Roller Coaster


There are laws in effect, such as what goes up must come down.
If you throw a ball in the air, it will come back down by a law of nature.


If you have used any drugs recreationally and achieved a high, then in a similar way, what goes up will come down and you will find the unpleasant after-effects such as crashing. Use drugs and go up, then later come down. You have to face up to the fact this is simply how it is. There are no shortcuts or exceptions for you, so suck it up.


Sugar, coffee, nicotine, alcohol and energy drinks have the same effects, and they are in a form borrowing energy from the future, making it so you will be minus that energy or ‘up’ later.
The constant ups and downs have a lasting effect, making it feel as though life is a constant roller coaster you cannot control. When you are continually taking a substance to cope with life, life in itself becomes a rougher ride, making it double the struggle, rather than moving gently downstream of it.


If you seek stability in emotional states of being, sobriety is highly suggested as you will end up with less emotional baggage; drugs (including alcohol) mask our emotions as well as exacerbating them in such a way that we do not deal with them and allow them to pass. We believe we are ‘drowning our sorrows’ when we drink alcohol to forget, but what we are really doing is masking the issue for now, only to compound it a little later.


The problem is not going anywhere. It will still be there when the drugs and the drink wear off. What will we do then—keep on taking the substances, building up tolerance until the addiction becomes even worse than the issue we tried to forget?


We make it so the problems just build up and are not being released. Built-up unreleased energy can be toxic to the body and spirit, spending energetic currency, wasting precious vitality, and being an inhibitor to spiritual growth.


Plant medicines can be perception openers, but they are only a means to open doors of perception. They are not the means to walk through those doors in purposeful action, which sobriety and meditation assist in achieving.


Notable Empathy Killer


An external source is partly responsible for a large lack of empathy loss in today’s societies, and it is being purposefully perpetuated.


From painkiller to empathy killer, acetaminophen (paracetamol) reduces empathy for pain.
Multiple studies link acetaminophen to being an empathy killer, these studies concluding that this painkiller also inhibits your ability to be empathetic.


Empathy is a factoring condition in relating to each other, so using a painkiller that reduces empathy is creating an invisible divide amongst people. You may be taken aback to hear that acetaminophen works its way into your body whether you want to take it or not—because it is often delivered to us by stealth, not only sold to us when we ask for it in the pharmacy.

Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol, is the most popular painkiller in the United States currently and is in multiple food sources. Therefore, it is a natural deduction that it is one of the many culprits of the current societal empathy loss epidemic.

 

If we wish to become more connected through emotional intelligence and heightened awareness, then this surreptitious feeding of empathy killers is an invisible block to our connection progression. We are often unaware of its additional side effects from the advertised use of reducing pain, but beyond that, we are also sometimes taking it without intending to, through foodstuffs.[48]

 
And if we are taking it to treat pain and then its effects are compounded by us taking it in via what we eat, it is little wonder that we cannot get along with each other the way we used to. 

This is also the case with many pharma medications, hence the term Pharma-Farm-a, mainly designed for the human cattle of the planet, that ignorantly run around as sheep to the slaughter, disconnecting from the root of health, nature itself.

 

This is also referred to as pharming, referring to the use of genetic engineering which purposefully inserts genes to code plant or animal hosts that would otherwise not express those genes, thus creating a genetically modified organism (GMO). Pharming is also known as molecular farming or biopharming, a process that may be used to genetically modify (manipulate) human genetic coding. By implication, this creates a new modified species contaminated with lower-realm animal DNA, in effect receiving a ‘mark of beast’ DNA.


All the medicine that we need is provided in nature.


Key takeaways:

- Emotions are triggered by the senses and are a form of energy.

 

- We are electric and electromagnetic beings with the ability to attract what we desire. Though our thoughts and feelings must align to change one’s magnetic marker from negative (in lacking), to positive in truly feeling abundant.

 

- In manifestation, you must let go of what you desire, to have it return.

 

- Emotional intelligence is in part learning that others are not the root cause of emotions, but that the root is within ourselves.

- Suffering plays a role in evolutionary and spiritual development and is a gateway to awareness.

- Feelings are different from emotions. Feelings are a result of emotional imprints: cause and effect.

- A step to emotional well-being is emotional welling or harnessing. But harnessing should not be attempted unless you are living in virtue.

 

- Due to the war on emotional and spiritual intelligence, the names of these states of ego known as demons have been erased and, for most, long forgotten for what they are by the larger population. It is time for them to be seen again for who they are, and for their names to be revealed, these being their vibrational feelings.

 

-When one truly knows their name(s), they can be harnessed as a form of leveraging energy. As they can harness us, so can we harness them in return.

 

- Becoming fully equanimous to all the 108 is to dissolve all aspects of ego, aligning, tuning or atoning the three bodies (physical, spirit and conscious) to resonate at the frequency that allows you to become the key for entrance. For only when you resonate at that key frequency do you get the all-access sovereign citizen pass of the omniverse (access to the Heavens). Those who are egoless (equanimous) have a key to the doors of Eden.

 

- Those who engage the 108 aspects of the ego, earthly defilements, have misplaced their key to the gates. With their instruments out of tune, they are not tuned in. To illuminate ourselves to become more emotionally and sensationally aware, we also need to address the senses as they are in association with the 108 to perpetuate a veil, a form of illusion. So, let’s
dive into the senses.


He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has
mastered himself is mightier still.[49]
~ Lao Tzu
