Thanks for your response, it is very much appreciated.
All things you seek/need are within you, nothing of real worth is external.. it only appears that way initially.
True Power lay within you. It resides in your Base Chakra and we all feel it through anger which causes most to be afraid of it without ever realising
that the being angry portion is about self-control while the rising power is there to be used effectively. It is such a deep well of power that we can
easily tap into it when we are in a state of no-mind.. although the instigating thought occurs first, otherwise it does not work for us.
True 'Power' is gained through practice that brings "Authority" over the elements, which is how we can bring storms/rain, move wind and clouds for
specific needs. In order to reach that level of awareness more effectively we use a path of Remembering what we are and what paths have brought us to
Now. This is most easily achieved by working with our higher-self as it will enable you to have the necessary experiences to Remember.
With this remembring we can again stand in 'our power', with much more awareness and no need for reliance on tools and rituals. We will then reach a
point where we again Merge with or higher-self in order to become the awakened soul in this flesh, and thus more able to effectively use the 'Power'
we are then more open too.
I disagree that the path to real Knowledge is manyfold. Witness the many Belief-systems and philosophies filled with supposed truths, and yet few
people ever truly awaken to their higher awareness via those paths. I do think the whole mystery school/occult Belief-system is a program of waylaying
growth while thinking and believing that we are growing unbounded. I've seen so much of it over these many years and note then how those paths fail
most people, who would benefit much more from simplified methods to meet and work with their own higher-self (Primary Spirit Guide).
Another thing I do not see as being valuable is the need, want/desire to commune with other external beings for any reason other than to help them
awaken too. In which case it must be the higher-self that should be a real Teacher as it knows exactly what you need and when, even if we do not
understand it in that moment.
I would no more allow an external being to manipulate the energy flowing through me than I would allow a doctor to give me a flu injection, because I
manipulate the energy for myself when I feel the need to. I am very much aware that the energy is not Mine, it is the Universe we are all a small
portion of, and so I should allow it to flow unhindered through me even though I can use it for effective means also... think healing, etc.
I do agree with you in some respect that the use of Tools and Rituals are a step along a path for some people, but we then need to recognise it's
limitations and begin then to stop crawling and start walking with our own strength so as not to become reliant upon external forces we have no
control over. The hard part is to eject ALL Beliefs from our consciousness so that we cannot again be Limited by them.
So, I do hope this words have answered your questions to me. If you wish to experiment with some practices I would direct you to my website.. link in
signature. There you will find the simplified methods I used for myself and have been teaching now for many years. Do not be put of by the simplicity
of these methods, they are designed for the majority of people to explore themselves with and thus to have their own growth experiences. I will
suggest that as you practice them that you should also modify them according to instigating thoughts (you receive from the higher-self).
What I find with these simplified methods is that they are a new beginning.. one free from all dogma and Belief.. and should be practiced as if
naked.. meaning to not hold onto ANY Beliefs or thoughts about anything... thus no limitations to what you can achieve within yourself.
