A reminder about remaining centered amongst chaos (& my oil painting.)

in life •  27 days ago

How much control do we actually have over our own environments ? How much of reality is collective & how much of it is only our own vibration attracting everything into our personal experience ? 

I feel that this is one of the most important questions in life we can ask because it is suppose to be the core  of how we create our reality. 

 I have studied most so called "experts" on the subject from Abraham Hicks, The Secret, Wayne Dyre, Mark Passio's "New Age Bull Sh** conference", Cameron Days "Why I am no longer a light worker" to Nassiem Haramein talking about the Unified field theory, to name a few. 

Can a person really "love & light" him or herself out of a war zone ? If someone keeps blissfully meditating alone in that cave with only good vibes will they only get the great stuff ? " As I mentioned in my previous post, a Civil war may break out in my home country of South Africa & I feel that the "super positive & uber spiritual" vibe is not an absolute guarantee of safety. 

I used to LOVE Abraham Hicks & movies like "The secret" ! "Just feel great & everything great in life will line up !" Unfortunately, after many years of further investigation I discovered (for myself) that the core of their teachings are probably correct but "the devil is in the details." In the "New Age Bull Sh** conference" it is explained that the first 5 tenets of many new age beliefs parallel the first 5 tenets in Satanism. Such as "only worry about maintaining your own vibration - dont worry so much about others." " Only keep your eyes on the prize & not whats going on around you... avoid looking at those who will "taint your good vibe. "

I personally feel that Buddha gives some of the best teachings. His teachings do not encourage people to ignore & deny their pain... but to transcend pain by feeling it & thereby processing & honoring it. I have found many people in the New Age movement to be quite polarized & fake (pretending they have no shadow) but, in my opinion,  Buddha offers more authentic & integrated techniques of transcending hardship. 

This is one of my earlier oil paintings. "The Eye of the Storm. - Remaining centered amongst chaos." - a reminder to myself that the power does come from within when things go awry but not to get too fluffy & ignorant about it.

I agree with your analysis. The new age / satanic philosophy says “Do what thou wilt, let that be the whole of the law” meaning do whatever you feel, regardless of anyone else, which is a very selfish and childish worldview. It is the road to destruction because it lacks wisdom, and without self discipline there is no freedom, you become a slave to your own material desires. The new age satanic worldview often portrays Christian as judgemental and unforgiving, I find this untrue, its actually the most loving and forgiving worldview. With all the scriptures and laws aside, Jesus said there are only 2 laws. Love the Most High God with all your heart and Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Now that’s a formula for a happy, balanced and joyous life and society.

Yes, exactly. The initial creed of natural spiritual law came from the pagans: "Do what thou wilt, but harm the none." But the Satanists chose to leave out the latter part. The most eye opening conference (now available on youtube) is Mark Passio's "new age Bll Sht conference" where they detail how the core of the "love & light" new age movement have satanic roots and how & why it was created through satanism. Definitely worth a watch. I am not religious at all (not atheist either) but from my investigations into the paranormal & occult subjects I have observed that there is great power in the name & being, Jesus Christ.

Yes absolutely, I don’t go along with institutionalized religion but focus on a personal relationship with the Most High, yes I have found in my research and experience true power in the name Jesus Christ. God bless, I look forward to your future posts. Peace!
