Weird how the mind works. Thinking, conscious and subconscious, can and will drive us any way we allow it. We think we’re freely steering this thing called our body and mind and so often we are just being led from one unimportant event to another.
And have no flipping idea why or how.
Think about it. Have you been in control of your thoughts and actions all of your life? I haven’t.
We are not fully in control of what we think, say or do.
But when you wake up you try to be. It is a struggle, we have to admit, but let’s look at this.
We Are Not Our Own…or Are We?
Psychologists have propounded this for centuries. Scholars and philosophers have implied it for ages.
We’re apparently considered a manipulated mass of semi-conscious goo trying to find its way around the Universe. Look at the works of Pavlov and BF Skinner and other social engineers and their influence on humanity. They think we’re trainable animals.
Have they succeeded to a great extent? Only if we allowed them to.
The overarching question?
What’s directing or dictating our thoughts? What are we basing our actions on? Can we be sure where these influences come from and that we’re in charge of our lives?
Pretty big questions.
Got answers? I’m sure you do, or think you do. Just as I do. Chasing down the source of our thoughts and transcending to higher consciousness is now the name of the game.
And it’s fun when you get the hang of it. But humanity’s plight is a sad sight to see from the point of conscious understanding. The good news is that there is a clean, safe place to observe all of this, and it exists within and without each and every one of us.
Get there. And quick.
The Example of the Ouija Board
I recently watched a dramatization of a couple who entertained a divining Ouija Board for fun and entertainment. Their encounter turned out disastrous. They had no idea what they were entangling with and eventually had to get the help of a local shaman to clean their premises of what they’d foolishly allowed in and was tormenting their lives.
This kind of stuff is no joke, I can tell you from personal experience as I’m sure many of you can. You carelessly mess with the other side and you’ll get smacked. That goes for any kind of divination, no matter how innocuous it appears.
Never screw around with occult divining tools unless you are very, very well prepared or with a responsible mediator. It is a serious responsibility, not a thrill ride. The other side is real and under certain restrictive orders.
But if you cross the line, don’t be surprised if you have some strange encounters. Serious warning there.
On the other hand, some very adept I Ching or Tarot readers and the like can really help you. It has everything to do with the source and medium, including yourself if you consult such tools. Personally, I don’t depend on them, but they can be informative and a spiritual boost once in a while. But be careful. Never give your power over to another for any reason. If that’s a requirement back out fast.
The main thing was: I realized something very powerful while watching this encounter and remembering my own naive past….
