When we are born, we are perfect, intelligent beings; then the world of knowledge forces us into a world of pain, suffering and violence. Intelligence cannot force, so in the past our natural intelligence was buried under the forcefulness of knowledge. The time has now come for that intelligence to emerge and for knowledge to take a back seat instead of the driver’s seat where it has been for thousands of years.
I use the word “force” deliberately because that is how we entered into the world of knowledge although it was on a psychological level via manipulation and control. That makes it difficult to see. To be part of this society, to follow the rules, to do what you are told and become totally conditioned are all forced upon us. You were psychologically forced by the use of control, guilt, manipulation, shame, greed; etc. to accept the world of knowledge.
I say that we are now ready for something new, and I will assist with this by telling you the secret to life, the secret to fusion, the secret to coming together, and the secret to peace on earth. Peace on earth, fusion of male and female, love, and coming together will happen when you see that you are only your opinion and that you think your opinion is the right one (as everybody does). If you start seeing this, there is one simple thing you can do. Give up your opinion.
Most people live a life of pain and suffering, and that pain and suffering is caused by that one simple thing — having an opinion and thinking it is right. Giving up your opinion is the way to bring fusion of the male and the female, which will bring forth peace on earth. So, I ask you to say out loud to yourself or others if you can, “I give up my opinion.” “I give up my need to be right.”
We are all so complex in our way of being and so buried in knowledge and opinion, of having to be right, that we find it is a problem to give it up. We cannot give it up because even the act of giving it up is an act of knowledge or knowing we need to do that.
The key is to start with making the statement “I give up my own opinion.” Then in each and every situation you find yourself in you ask, “Is this my opinion?” and in the beginning the answer will be “yes” in almost every situation.
If you get to the point where you can say maybe that wasn’t my opinion, that would be the start of something new. Until then you will be your opinions, and as I stated above, those opinions were forced on you; so they are not even really your opinions. They are opinions forced on you by your parents, by society, by religions, by nationalities, by TV, by teachers, etc.; and there was a place and time you accepted them as your own opinion.
Once you have an opinion that is all you will see in the world around you which will prove and reinforce that opinion. At that point nothing more is needed to be done, for you are conditioned to the world. In essence, you have put yourself in prison and put a lock on your own door. You hold onto an opinion, reinforce it and then add to it, which could be a hundred times a day. You are putting another lock on the door each time you hold onto your opinion. You can imagine how deep this goes, how convoluted and complex it is; yet it is a simple fix. Drop your opinion.
The world of knowledge and opinion is very complex and convoluted and goes back thousands of years, as that is how long we have been in the world of knowledge. The world of knowledge is the mirror image of the world of intelligence. Knowledge mimics intelligence so closely that it is easy to think they are the same.
I suggest you start to take your need to be right away from yourself. When you find you want to argue or complain or blame or control, look at this need to be right. If you ask the question “Is this my opinion?” and your answer is “yes,” then stop arguing and let the other person be right or no one be right.
When you start to question your opinions, you might be able to see that they are just opinions; that they are not true. If you were told and have an opinion that a yellow wall is black, you will argue that point to everyone who tries to tell you that wall is yellow. Yet, if you are open to questioning it, you might look at it more closely and see that it really is yellow. You accepted a premise that the wall was black; and then after checking, you saw that it might not be black.
Sometimes it is important to find someone to listen with who has been to a place of transformation so that you will have a guidepost to let you know where you are and where to go. A problem arises if you make a religion out of it and make that person a god or savior. They are just a guidepost. Yet, in the beginning it might be important so that you can step outside of yourself and let them lead for a while. This allows your opinions to not take the forefront in your life, and you can set them aside.
You need to give up what you think you know, and often that is easier to do when you temporarily have someone else to follow. It is necessary for you to drop yourself, your opinions, in order to find peace on earth. Again I say, don’t fall into the trap of making that person a religion and having to follow him or her whole life. That is falling into another opinion. At some point you will need to go on your own — fly free.
I am not saying this will be easy as I am aware that to you giving up your opinion is like a small death. You hold your opinions as being who you are and giving up just one of them is like dying. That is actually true, for you will be dying, dying psychologically, dying to the pain, suffering and violence of this world.
Fear of death is a large fear in almost everyone since it is the unknown, and we all want to know everything. Yet, this is what I am asking you to do — to die to your opinions. The very thing you are scared to do is the thing that will give you what you want most.
Someone said to me that is probably what all the sages were pointing to when they said you need to die to get to heaven. They might not have been talking about a physical death. It might have been this psychological death, a death of the ego so that you can then live here in heaven.
There is a tiny space between a physical life and death, and the same is true for a psychological life and death. Perhaps you can get to that place between life/death once you drop your opinion. When you do, you will arrive at that space of not knowing anything, and that is psychological death. It has to be a real “know nothing,” though, which you experience. You will see that distinction by your actions, and immediately you will know everything.
