I make a distinction between feelings and emotions. Things like anger, sadness, jealousy, pride, happiness — those are all what I call feelings. They are frozen thoughts, and they are removable, changeable, because they are not real.
Emotions are real and they are not removable.They have no “feeling” attached to them, they are in the action not in a feeling. Emotions are Truth, Love, Creation and Intelligence.
Truth and love are half in the old consciousness and half in the new consciousness. Truth can be spoken in the domain of duality and invention — what I call the old consciousness of violence and pain. If you say this is a world of violence and pain, that is true, and it is spoken in that world of violence and pain.
Love is an action, and you can act like love in the old consciousness, but our actions say there is no love on the planet. You could say that the action of love is what I have been doing for 30 years, which is bringing forth something new — a new consciousness with no violence in it. So, there is the possibility of love on this planet, and it is in the action of it. You could say that a truth spoken is a manifestation of love. If you care enough to speak the truth about something, you obviously care enough about yourself to discover what love is for yourself. You cannot have love for another until there is love for yourself. People who care for themselves would not lie to themselves or others.
Creation is in the new consciousness although you can create the possibility for it in the old consciousness. If you say, “I create a partnership with myself,” that is creating the possibility of it even though it is not the creation of it. Then when there is the action of it, actually doing what it takes to create a partnership is creation.
Intelligence is similar to creation. It hasn’t fully manifested here on this planet, yet there are some possibilities being manifested.Intelligence is also in the action of the now.
I once saw a picture of a fish jumping out of the water, and I immediately got the image of the first fish that realized there was something other than water. That fish decided to see what land was like. It would go on land a little at a time and maybe stay longer and longer each time. What if that fish, or whatever creature crawled up out of the ocean, had decided after only a few times that it was impossible and decided it couldn’t do it? If that creature had decided to be negative, we might still be swimming in the sea. If the fish had said “maybe” that could have that would have given it the motivation to keep going and created the possibility for eventually living on land.
It is the manner in which you enter the situation that makes the difference in the situation. If you enter it as a victim, you will be victimized. If you enter it with negativity you will see all the negativity. You could give someone a solid bar of gold and the negative person will complain that there is dust on it.
What I speak of comes from the core. It comes from the common man, the everyday person who is toiling away at their life. You don’t transform from the top down. It comes from the bottom up. That is why I keep saying for you to say you are the world’s worse. Be at that core level.
If you look at all this directly, humility, meek (as in the Bible), and transformation all come from the people who are modest, who have a low view of their importance. They come from the core, the soil of the ground.
Some people think they want to help others, and that is what they think is their purpose in life. Yet, if you are lost can you help anyone else? The only way you can help another is to help yourself first. The greatest gift you can give your children, or anyone else, is to heal/save yourself.
The complete observation of our mistakes is the eradication of the mistake. Complete observation does not include any sadness, sorrow, feelings of any kind, any opinion, any excuse, any judgment or any attachment to it at all.
Speaking the truth is the observation of the self in the now and speaking what that is. Observe it, put a name on it long enough to recognize it, though don’t identify with it. For example, if you are observing negativity in yourself, then call it what it is. Don’t make an excuse for being or doing it or having a reaction. If you continue being it, then it is an excuse.
If you say “I am negative” and then yell at someone, that is continuing being it. But if you say “I am negative; let me watch that,” that is a whole new situation isn’t it? That is a watching of it rather than a continuing of it by using an excuse.
Here is another way of looking at it: Saying, “I did that because I am negative.” is an excuse, but saying, “That was a negative action.” is you observing being negative. The because makes the difference.
The possibility of negativity disappearing is for you to say “I create that I am no longer negative.” It manifests as you see yourself being negative and observing it in the moment it happens. Each step manifests it. Then when you are no longer negative, that is the full manifestation or the creation of it, and when it is complete, it disappears.
