Ken Wilber on Forgiveness

From Ken Wilber's Grace and Grit:

I always liked the Course’s reliance upon forgiveness as a way to remember the true Self. This is a somewhat unique approach, found in a few of the other great wisdom traditions, which usually stress some form of awareness training or devotion. But the theory behind forgiveness is simple. The ego, the separate-self sense, is not just a cognitive construct, but also an affective one. That is, it is propped up not just by concepts but by emotions. And the primal emotion of the ego, according to this teaching, is fear, followed by resentment. As the Upanishads put it, “Wherever there is other, there is fear.”

In other words, whenever we split seamless awareness into a subject versus an object, into a self versus an other, then that self feels fear, simply because there are now so many “others” out there that can harm it. Out of this fear grows resentment. If we are going to insist on identifying with just the little self in here, then others are going to bruise it, insult it, injure it. The ego, then, is kept in existence by a collection of emotional insults; it carries its personal bruises as the fabric of its very existence. It actively collects hurts and insults, even while resenting them, because without its bruises, it would be, literally, nothing.

The ego’s first maneuver in dealing with this resentment is to try to get others to confess their faults. “You hurt me; say you’re sorry.” sometimes this makes the ego temporarily feel better, but does nothing to uproot the original cause. And as often as not, even if the person does apologize, the likely result is now hatred of them. “I knew you did that to me; see, you just admitted it!” The fundamental mood of the ego: never forgive, never forget.

What the ego doesn’t try is forgiveness, because that would undermine its very existence. To forgive others for insults, real or imagined, is to weaken the boundary between self and other, to dissolve the sense of separation between subject and object. And thus, with forgiveness, awareness tends to let go of the ego and its insults, and revert instead to the Witness, the Self, which views both subject and object equally. And thus, according to Course, forgiveness is the way I let go of my self and remember my Self.

Heaven and Hell

This is a quote by Ken Wilber from the forward to Caroline Myss' book, Entering the Castle:

"Hell is identification with the outer self. Hell is not a place; hell is not somewhere that we go when we are dead; hell is not punishment handed out to us by something or someone else -- it is rather our contracting, sinning, separating activity of choosing the wrong self to identify with. We identify with that which we are not, we identify merely and only with the empirical ego, the self that can be seen; and that puny, finite temporal, limited, and lacerating identity is nothing other than hell. Hell is a horrendous case or mistaken identity. We have forgotten who and what we are, a transcendental self plugged straight into spirit, speaking with the words of God and shining with the radiance of the Goddess. But we identify only with the finite self, the objective self, the self that can be seen, and not the self that is the seer, divine and infinite and eternal.

Heaven is the discovery and realization of the inner divine self, the supreme identity. The mystics East and West have long proclaimed that the Kingdom of Heaven is within -- because the simple fact is that I AMness is Christ Consciousness, spirit itself, the Godhead in me and as me. The true self in each and every one of us is the true self that Jesus of Nazareth realized -- "I and the Father are one" -- and that realization, quite simply, transformed him from a temporal Jesus into an eternal Christ, a transformation that he asks us to remember and repeat ourselves.

Of course, this does not mean that my empirical ego is Christ, or that my personal self is Christ. To believe that is, indeed, a schizophrenic delusion. Nobody is saying that my personal self is spirit, but rather that the transcendental witness of that personal self is one with spirit in all beings. Your transcendental self is Christ; your personal self is you."

Quote from 'Gift from the Sea' by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The beach is not the place to work; to read, write, or think. I should have remembered that from other years. Too warm, too damp, too soft for any real mental discipline or sharp flights of spirit. One never learns. Hopefully, one carries down that faded straw bag, lumpy with books, clean paper, long over-due unanswered letters, freshly sharpened pencils, lists, and good intentions. The books remain unread, the pencils break their points, and the pads rest smooth and unblemished as the cloudless sky. No reading, no writing, no thoughts even – at least, not at first.

At first, the tired body takes over completely. As on shipboard, one descends into a deck-chair apathy. One is forced against one’s mind, against all tidy resolutions, back into the primeval rhythms of the sea- shore. Rollers on the beach, wind in the pines, the slow flapping of herons across sand dunes, drown out the hectic rhythms of city and suburb, time tables and schedules. One falls under their spell, relaxes, stretches out prone. One becomes, in fact, like the element on which one lies, flattened by the sea; bare, open, empty as the beach, erased by today’s tides of all yesterday’s scribblings.

And then, some morning in the second week, the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense – no—but beach-wise. It begins to drift, to play, to turn over in gentle careless rolls like those lazy waves on the beach. One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor. Perhaps a channeled whelk, a moon shell, or even an Argonaut.

But it must not be sought for or – heaven forbid! – dug for. No, no dredging of the sea-bottom here. That would defeat one’s purpose. The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.

Sorting the Seeds

This is a quote from Jungian analyst Marion Woodman's The Pregnant Virgin:

Sorting the seeds is a daily process of ruthless honesty that allows us grain by grain to discover our Being. the Latin verb esse means "to be"; thus in discovering our Being we are discovering our essence. This is a monumental task when we have spent our lives Doing, especially when Doing has become an escape from Being because Being is experienced as nothingness.

Again and again we have to say to ourselves: What was my feeling in that situation -- not my emotions, my feeling? My emotions may support my feeling, but emotions are affective responses determined by complexes, momentary reactions to an immediate situation. Feeling, on the other hand, evaluates what something is worth to me. What am I willing to put energy into ? What is no longer of value to me? What did I really feel when the boss fed me Smarties today? I've always enjoyed them before, but today I felt him saying, "Be a good little girl. Keep quiet. Don't bother me." Why am I depressed? (Follow the depression back to where I betrayed my own feeling and turned my energy against myself). Is it possible my lover is not the man I thought him to be? Does he see me at all? Am I projecting my own inner man onto him? Am I forcing him to take responsibility for my undeveloped talents? Am I treating my body as my mother treated hers? Am I thinking like my father? Where am I blindly reacting as they did? Where am I still reacting childishly? Is my anger coming from my gut or my head? Is it feminine anger or animus anger? (Feminine anger cleanses; animus anger leaves me tense.) Guided by the response of the unconscious as revealed in dreams, we differentiate grain from grain, question after question, until one day we find our own authentic voice.

You are a Beloved Child of God who is on Earth during this unique moment to cocreate the wonders of Heaven on Earth. You are an empowered Instrument of God. This inner knowing is opening your heart and allowing your God Self to increase the amount of Divine Light flowing through your Earthly body.

The increased influx of Light flows into the physical plane and enters the core of purity in every electron of precious life energy. The Light then pushes to the surface anything that conflicts with Its frequencies of harmony, love and balance. Unfortunately, as the discordant frequencies of energy surface to be transmuted back into Light, they often create the illusion that things are getting worse. People easily witness the surfacing negativity, but what they don't see is the incredible Light that is pushing the negativity to the surface to be healed and transmuted. That phenomenon has the effect of keeping people focused on the problem instead of the solution.

When the focus of your attention is stuck on the negativity that is coming up to be healed instead of the Light of God that is pulsating with all of the patterns of perfection and solutions contained in the Causal Body of God, you empower and sustain the negative things that are surfacing. Instead of eliminating the problems, you actually intensify them. This creates the situations that make you feel desperate, overwhelmed and hopeless.

People are so used to accepting the physical plane as their true reality, that they have forgotten it is merely a reflection of their consciousness. No matter how real your life challenges seem or how entrapped you are in the grip of poverty, disease, low self-esteem, loveless relationships, hatred, corruption, ignorance, war, etcetera, those distorted expressions of life can only be maintained in your life if you sustain them through your thoughts, words, actions, feelings and beliefs. If you choose to empower the Light and all of the patterns of perfection contained in that Light instead of choosing to empower the things that cause your pain and suffering, your Earthly experiences will be transformed in the twinkling of an eye.

Never has there been a more opportune time for you to change your course of direction. Never has Humanity received more support from the Heavenly Realms than we are receiving at this moment. Focus on fulfilling your dreams, and miracles will happen.

Desiderata, Part II (The Complete Poem)

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Who Knows What’s Good or Bad? - A Story

In ancient China, there lived an old farmer who worked a small plot of land with his teenage son. They were poor even by the most modest standards. During this time, horses were considered great treasures; the richest person in the province owned no more than a few of them. One day, a wild horse came galloping into the town, jumped the old farmer’s fence, and began grazing on his land. According to local law, this meant that the horse now rightfully belonged to him and his family. The boy could hardly contain his joy, but the father put his hand on his son’s shoulder and said, “Who knows if this is good or bad? We shall see.”

The next day, the horse made its escape back to the mountains, and the boy was heartbroken. “Who knows if this is good or bad? We shall see,” said his father again, with the same equanimity he’d shown the day before. On the third day, the horse returned with a dozen wild horses following! The boy could hardly believe his good fortune. “We’re rich!” he cried, to which the father replied, “Who knows if this is good or bad? We shall see.” On the fourth day, the boy climbed on one of the wild horses and was thrown, breaking his leg when he landed. His father ran to get the doctor and was soon helping him treat the boy, who was crying and complaining about his miserable fate. The old farmer wiped the boy’s forehead with a wet cloth, looked deeply into his eyes, and said directly, “My dear son, who knows if this is good or bad? We shall see.” And on the fifth day, the province went to war, and army recruiters came through the town and conscripted all the young men—except for the one with a broken leg.

Who Are You?

Wednesday, July 18, 2007


This is the latest blog entry from The Field Center's blog, written by Philip Golabuk:

"On the Fielding Questions Live phone session yesterday—a great session with a wonderful group of exceptionally intelligent and bighearted folks—we spent some time exploring the idea of nonresistance, one of the features of Field practice. This is basic, in our terms, because the moment we’re resisting something, the moment we’re looking to get rid of it, kill it off, or even change it, we’re in a state of resistance toward it to whatever degree—that is, we’re lending the authority of our consciousness to the very thing we want gone, and we simply can’t have it both ways. “What we resist, persists,” as the saying goes. Our other option, of course, is acceptance, and as we state in the Course, “Practice begins with knowing what you want and accepting things as they are.” One woman on the call wanted to know how to live in nonresistance without ending up a doormat. The concern, which many students run into when they first learn about nonresistance, is that others will walk all over them. I explained that this choice to meet the world without resistance rather than through exerting one’s will, has to be applied unconditionally. This means that we’re not in a state of resistance toward anything, including our own truth, toward the truth of our desires. So, if someone asks us to do something, and we check in with our feeling-nature and the truth is no, then nonresistance shows up as our saying no. Within certain widely held and promulgated gender intentions, men may be willfully assertive; women, willfully passive—but either way, there’s resistance. In practical terms, both would come into healthy relation with their will by adopting a stance of willingness, because the truth is we are not here to be assertive or passive, but to be who we are. Clearly, the willingness to be a doormat against one’s truth is a willful denial of that truth. Thus willingness makes us more of who we are, not less.

Living without resistance, we give up leading and follow, but not necessarily outer demands or the requests of others. We follow the truth of our being, and so are willing to say yes when the truth is yes, no when it’s no. This gives us a strength and an authority that needs no defenses. Living in this sort of unconditional acquiescence to the truth lifts from us the burden of trying to manage what other people think and allows us to rest in an intimate recognition that our desires are, in a way, none of our business. They are what they are. By meeting them in a spirit of unconditional willingness, by accepting and even befriending them, we step fully into our own authority. Then we may find that we’ve awakened from the dream that there was ever anything to resist."

Resistance - Abraham-Hicks Quotation

"Resistance is about believing that you are vulnerable or susceptible to something not wanted and holding a stance of protection, which only holds you in a place of not letting in the Well-being that would be there otherwise. There is nothing big enough to protect you from unwanted things -- and there are no unwanted things big enough to get into your experience."

Beliefs, Alignment, Source

Quote from the Latest Energy Alert at

What's Up on Planet Earth

"We can choose to believe that others are doing us wrong, or that all is always in perfect and divine right order. We can choose to know that we are all on the same page, even though we may express this page in a hundred different ways. Ultimately, we are all one at the core of our desires.

When we find a similarity or overlap with another, we are simply identifying a unity or commonality in regard to the arena, subject matter, or similar way that we have chosen to express our higher level desires. When this occurs, we feel that we are kindred spirits, one in the same, and united with others in a beautiful and special way. This then causes an alignment to occur, and this alignment creates an opening and channel for more Source energy to pour through us on a regular basis with no resistance… resistance always serves to block the flow of light.

If we can know that the vast majority of the time, we are all wanting the same thing, even though we may express this same thing in different ways, we can then know that we need not attack, insult, or criticize the beliefs of another."

What is Psychic?

As with so many other words, we use the term psychic without a clear understanding of what it means. To some people, it's mysterious, to others it's other worldly, and some even regard it as demonic. In fact, it means none of these things. It comes from the Greek word psychikos, which means of the soul, and relates to that part of us that is also a part of our Source and Creator. Webster's Dictionary defines psychic as lying outside the sphere of physical science or knowledge; spiritual in origin and describes psychic abilities as those that are sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences.

There are four basic types of psychic experience, although a given event can include aspects of one, two, three or all four types.

* Clairaudience (literally, clear hearing) is defined as the power or faculty of hearing something not present to the ear but which has objective reality.

* Clairsentience (clear feeling) means the ability to physically feel sensations that have objective reality outside the presence of an apparent causative force.

* Clairvoyance (clear seeing) means the power or faculty to see objects not present to the physical senses; perceiving matters beyond the range of physical perception.

* Intuition (to know) is defined as knowledge gained without evident rational thought and inference.

Overcoming and Transforming Fears

Following is a quote from an article written by Laura De Giorgio of DeepTranceNow

Fears which relate to performing some task adequately are easily removed by developing competency through practicing the task. Writing, driving a car, riding a horse, speaking in public, selling, speaking different languages, dancing, getting rapid results with Self-Hypnosis, using hypnosis to help others, and other tasks people may do in a course of their lives are skills that can be learned and perfected through practice. Practice builds familiarity with the task, it builds confidence, and the performance of the task becomes virtually automatic, just like walking or talking.

Fears which relate to traumatic events which have produced phobias and anxiety attacks may get removed by accessing the original event in one’s mind and emotions and altering it in some way - perhaps playing the event backwards in your mind as if you were rewinding a movie and then scrambling the images and sounds, giving the characters voices from cartoons or adding circus music or anything else that helps to neutralize the emotional response. Repeating this process of running the images rapidly backwards and scrambling the images and sounds, may help to remove some fears and phobias within a couple of minutes.

And then there are fears which are most effectively removed by recognizing that ultimately there is only One Loving and Intelligent Power expressing through everyone and everything and joining hands with or aligning yourself with this One Power. If there is only One Power and this Power is in you and with you - who or what can be against you. To experience this One Power, requires that you go within.

Article: The Boddhisatva Nature of the Soul

To access entire article, click link below

Here is one quote:
The soul is a pure spark of divinity -- pure love -- and does not accumulate what we call karma.

Rather, the soul incarnates over and again in order to take some portion of the collective limitations and imbalances into its own incarnative experience for the benefit of the entire collective soul of humanity. This is done in order to transform the limited collective energy that the soul embodies while on earth by application of the LOVE that the soul is in TRUTH. The soul is thus not bound by karma to return to life in a human body over and again as is commonly believed [and which I also believed for a long time], but rather it is bound by LOVE to liberate the collective soul from its limitations and the pain and suffering that result from them. Understanding this adds an entirely new dimension to our spiritual journey.

Easter - 3 Quotations from the Internet

This represents the moment in meditation when the Higher Self, responding to the willed intention of the individual, crystallizes a vision of a new life, and the path of Spirit opens up before the mind's eye, presenting the aspirant with new options, new possibilities, new connections, and new ways of living that will fulfill the individual's Higher Purpose.

This is a very auspicious moment indeed for our meditation practice. Now is the time to celebrate the subordination of the ego in favor of the Higher Self. Now is the time to demonstrate our willed intent to connect with the Higher Self, Christ Consciousness, through meditation, prayer, ceremony and ritual. Now is the time to surrender and allow ourselves to be guided on the path of Spirit.

On Good Friday, as he hung dying on the cross of wood, Jesus the Christ attained a world-altering spiritual victory over the personal ego which opened for all of us a doorway to the Way, the Truth and Eternal Life.

The death of the ego is long and slow, and our ability to remain constant during this process of suffering and ego-death is made possible only by a constant renewal of faith. Yet as Jesus the Christ experienced on his cross of wood, every aspirant reaches a point where he or she will cry “My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?”

Each aspirant must rest assured that despite all feelings of despair and loss, the process is only purging us of the illusion of the separate self, the illusion that the egoistic personality is in control of our lives. Jesus the Christ remained Self-aware on the cross, in a spirit of total surrender.

In our spiritual practice, whatever it may be, we must also surrender to Universal forces far beyond the control of the egoistic mind, in a spirit of love, with a sincere desire that our sacrifice be offered for the salvation of the Whole, and thus we will achieve a great spiritual victory.


[T]he core meaning of Easter is that Jesus continued to be experienced after his death, but in a radically new way: as a spiritual and divine reality.

In a similar way, we might find ourselves in another place on the spectrum of spiritual understanding. Even if we, as individuals, do not necessarily experience the divine Christ presence, we can experience the message of Easter as a human desire to rise above the “tragic dimension” of our living...It is our desire and choice to live with the hope that joy is available to us, that it is intrinsically within us and with us. And for those times when we cannot access hope or joy ourselves there is the message, reflected in the natural world, of spring and re-birth and new life that reminds us of its very existence.

As we give our attention to the events of our lives, to the rise and the fall, to cold and the emerging warmth, we find the possibility of transformation for ourselves. Not simply going up and down, not simply repeating the cycle endlessly (remember the yo-yo is just a metaphor, just a pointer), but now fully engaged, now alive, now birthing hope in every glance, revealing love in every touch. Here is the secret of Easter: With each breath we can be born anew. Now. Now. Now.


The Three Traitors: The events that transpired during the Holy Week, as described in the gospels, must be lived within ourselves in order for us to become Christified beings. Just as Jesus was physically born, crucified, and resurrected in the holy land, so too should the Inner Christ go through the same within ourselves in order for us to become Christified. It is important to realize that all the historical figures that existed around Jesus have their counterparts within our psyche. The three traitors who crucified Christ are inside each of us. Judas is the demon of desire, that constantly torments us. Pilate is the demon of the mind, which washed its hands and provides justifications for everything. And Caiaphas is the demon of ill-will, that causes us to stray from doing the Will of the Father.

The multitudes of people who asked for the Lord's crucifixion are all the inhuman psychic aggregates that we carry within, which comprise the psychological ego. Who whipped Christ? Who are the ones who spit on Him? Who crowned Him with a crown of thorns? Who are the ones who cried "Crucifixion, Crucifixion", sending Him off to death? Are they not the same multitude of psychological defects that we have created and carry in our interior?

The Twelve Apostles: The twelve apostles are found within ourselves as well. They are the twelve fundamental parts of our own Being, found in our interior here and now. There is a Peter, a John, a Philip, and Andrew, a Matthew, etc., each with his own powers and virtues. Whoever wishes to become a true initiate or esoterist must learn to relate with himself, with the twelve parts of his/her inner Being. But this is only possible by burning the psychological defects with the Christic Fire, since the correct relation with each of the parts of out Being is impossible as long as the ego continues to exist within us.

Therefore Easter, the Holy Week, and the entirety of Christic history is not just a tale of yesterday, confined exclusively to the past. It holds deep esoteric mysteries, and for those who have gained comprehension it is a story of the present, a mystery that will unfold into work towards one's own Christification, here and now.

We Rise with Gratitude - Prayer

God, Creator of Mystery,
in the growing revelation of reality evolving around us,
we rise with gratitude into an ever larger and larger world.
Our personal life has its meaning,
and is dovetailed in all its co-evolutionary ups and downs
into the larger meaning that encompasses us.
None of us can go it alone: each has innate energies needed by all.
We give thanks to be conscious of the awesome narrative of which we are a part,
paradoxical and baffling as it is and must be.

A friend copied this quote for me. It's taken from the Unity Church's Daily Word publication:

When I am in need of guidance on matters great and small, I turn to Spirit within as my teacher and my guide. In the silence of my soul, I awaken more fully to the gentle guidance of Spirit.

As I quiet all thoughts about anything in the outer, my mind is open to the flow of divine wisdom within me. This time of communion provides me with clarity of thought that leads me in ways of health, happiness, and prosperity.

When I return to the circumstances of my day, I am conscious of Spirit's guiding light. I travel my path in life confidently, for the gentle guidance of Spirit is leading me to new and fulfilling discoveries.

A Place of Perfect Allowing

I'm on an Abraham-Hicks Roll...
Look for things that you appreciate where you are. It will put you in a place of perfect allowing, even when you are not yet manifesting all that you want. "There are many people right now experiencing the dream that is coming for me, who were at one time standing right where I'm standing. I'm right on track. There is not anything amiss here. Everything is unfolding perfectly. I am perfect where I am and gravitating to something that will satisfy me even more." That's the attitude that lets it expand.

Receiving/Letting in

Today's quote from Abraham-Hicks:
Complaining about anything, holds you in the place of refusing to receive the things you've been asking for. Justifying about anything holds you in the place of refusing to let in the very things that you've been asking for. Blaming someone, holds you in the place of refusing to let in the things that you've been asking for. Feeling guilty, feeling angry, it doesn't matter what you call it, it is a refusal, not a conscious one. You're asking; you can't help but ask. The Universe is yielding; it must yield. It's a big question, folks: why aren't you letting it in?

More Law of Attraction -- 2 Quotations

What and Why
When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there's usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you're going to get it. When you pose questions you don't have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down.
Just love everybody that interacts with you no matter how personally, or how peripherally, involved with you they are. The efficiency of the people who deal with you... everything is orchestrated by the manager called Law of Attraction. And your vibration is setting all of it into motion. Everything affecting you is a reflection of the vibration that you are emitting. Spend more time focused upon your dream than upon the reality. The reality gives birth to the dream -- but the dream is where you are wanting to put your attention.

Shifting the Light on Peace

World peace, means one mindset big enough to make the decisions about what everybody else wants, and the rest of the world conforming. That is the ultimate definition of world peace. You say, "Oh, let's get along!" And what each of you mean is, "You do what I want." A peaceful world means, "Everybody wanting what I want. Going along with what I want." And the only problem with that is, there are more than one of you, and you have endless desires that are born within you. The ultimate experience is, everyone having their experience and launching their individual rockets of desire, and the Universe yielding to all of them simultaneously. And everybody not worrying about what anybody else created, and so, then allowing what they are wanting. What a world that is, when there are endless desirers, who are allowing the fulfillment of their own desires.
