EGO SLAPPING 102
Learn how to slap some good sense into yourself by focusing on mastering the Eight Ego Altars separating you from your higher self. You will learn how to face the heart of darkness without fear formulated by a mere shadow: your ego. You will attain more self awareness and insight into how the ego has kept you enslaved to its addictions and desires. You will also gain self discipline designed to help you think more critically, problem solve with more accuracy and come up with ways to better apply the wisdom inherent in the course materials to daily solve problems that pop up. You will also become aware of how multifaceted the Eight Ego Altars are and how your ego has tricked you into thinking you have mastered most of them.
Each altar is connected to all of the others and must be viewed as a whole, with each harmful habit given equal attention since leaving even one unmastered and find you falling prey to manipulation and control by others and by your own fear based ego. Without mastery over the Eight Ego Altars, you will not find the calm and courage to fearlessly move into Ego Mastering 103.
Once you are no longer tempted to fall back into any of the Ego Altars, not for love nor money, you will find Ego Mastering 103 a piece of cake because you will have already begun, in 102, to work with the 12 Principles that help you walk past the temptation to collect the trinkets instead of true treasure and to leave behind catastrophic, reactionary thinking or shameless behavior that causes you to dissipate your power by continually falling prey to the whims and dark or malevolent forces who need your light to feed up to continue to exist in this realm.
This course is important because it teaches you how to exercise your power over the darkness who needs you to exist. It needs you; not the other way around as humanity has been duped into believing. Once you understand that you are food for the darkness when you continue to allow yourself to be controlled by your lower nature (i.e. your lower chakras, vs. your heart) you will refuse to feed the ego. And, like anything else, if you don’t feed it, it will go away.
RELEVANCE OF THIS COURSE
The primary impediments to moving out of the ego’s state of duality and into oneness with the Divine are the fears, illusions, ignorance, manipulations, and control games the ego created to give itself control and dominion over humanity. In a state of forgetfulness and fear, humanity surrendered its Sovereign, infinite god like self to the dictates of a shadow that can only reflect darkness. Through a fear based ego, humans bound themselves to a state of schizophrenia that pits the higher self against its pseudo, shadow self. Identification with the shadow self as an integral part of the divine self, obscures clear communication with the Higher Self, which has remained connected to and in a state of grace with the Creator. Meanwhile, humanity remains a house divided against itself, relying on a false, shadowy self that can only lead one into ever deeper states of separation from source, feelings of isolation and estrangement, and meaningless pursuits. All the while, seeking substitutes for reconnection with the Divine through material gain, the pleasure principle, and every form of addiction, great and small.
As a result of the forgoing, most of humanity have lived their lives in a state of prolonged suffering, desperation, premature aging, disease, and needless pain caused by separation from the Divinity that is hidden in the last place one would look: an open, forgiving and compassionate heart. Thus, the direct road back to reconnection with the Divine remains unaccessible to the majority of humanity who believe that it’s simply not possible to forgive some “sins” (an archery term that means to miss the mark); and those only able to extend compassion to those who think, believe or look like them. This exclusion of the “other,” as if the widespread diversity in humanity means that every human does not belong to a single species called the human race, which is singular … race is not plural in that connotation.
The dichotomous thinking that the “other” is not connected to all “others” keeps masses of humanity locked outside the gates of utopia. Yes, even those on a devout religious or spiritual path tend to arrive with their ego in tow where no dark shadows can go. If you were to ask the average person if their ego is the real problem with their problems, they would get offended. “Who me? I have no problems with my ego!” And that is the problem; they have no problem with their ego; They identify with it and believe they couldn’t exist egoless. This course is designed to help individuals see clearly through and master the Eight Ego Altars that keep them blindly wandering in the wilderness, unable to enter the Kingdom of Utopia where no egos are allowed to live. If you think life wouldn’t be worthwhile without your ego, then you will never experience real ecstasy nor true bliss. For attachment to your shadow self, “must you knock and wait a while, unheeded at the gate of the blessed.” (Kahlil Gibran).
THIS COURSE IS NOT ABOUT SPIRITUALIZING YOUR EGO
What have we overlooked in our desperately illogical, inept and inane attempts to end the cycle of insanity, separation, war, and suffering each time we incarnate on earth? The answer is always obvious. The following Haiku I wrote in undergraduate gets to the heart of the matter: “Seeking the complex answer, I overlook the simple solution.” My spiritual quest has been one long magnificent journey that began when I was 9 years old. I read every book I could get my hands on and studied under every philosopher, every religious, spiritual, and metaphysical teacher of every denomination, background and walk of life throughout the US and abroad, mindful to avoid anything associated with the dark arts. Looking back, clearly, I was being Divinely guided and prepared for my future calling as a professor, psychologist and author. All of the decades of continual study and application to see what worked and what did not, enabled me to be of better service to college students and clients from all over the world. Ultimately, what I found in my quest is that all problems, all suffering and all misery lead back to being attached to the Eight Ego Altars of Separation. They not only impair physical health and vitality, but keep humanity stuck in low level emotions that retard cognitive functioning while impeding proper use of logic, reasoning, and common sense.
Focus of this course:
This course contains a series of psychological software upgrades and basic truths designed to reboot one’s spirit to propel it out of the perpetual fear of poverty, death, and the belief that suffering is inevitable. We suffer because we believe the lie that we do not have an immortal soul. Belief in fallacies compel otherwise intelligent people to live lives of “quiet desperation” or to sell their immortal souls to an egotistical tyrant for a pittance.
(1) Taking personal responsibility for being self reliant while learning to exchange co-dependence for inter-dependency within a group setting. Students are required to do the inner work, combined with group therapy to heal the psychological traumas and wounds of the past that lead individuals to believe they are victims of circumstance vs. powerful beings.
(2) Examining universal and personal ego fallacies and assumptions that lead individuals to harm themselves, others, or the earth, and that keep them playing small.
(3) Developing discernment. Developing the ability to recognize the ignorance and naïveté of yourself and others through the lens of forgiveness and compassion in the old adage: “But for the grace of God, there goes I”. Discernment allows one to see through ego arguments cleverly designed to prove the truth a lie or the lie a truth, thereby permitting you to peacefully walk away from them.
(3) Breaking the vicious cycle of shame, secrecy and fear of being exposed for engaging in the Ego Altars. Accepting that one’s behavior is not who one is and focusing on changing it.
WHY IS THE COURSE ACCELERATED?
Humanity is now being given special dispensations to accelerate moving into alignment with their higher selves. This course is one of those dispensations. It is designed for busy people on the go. As such, it does not require austerities, like going into a cave, or ashram to accomplish.
Unconscious attachment to the Eight Ego Altars keep the majority of humanity out of integrity, seeking, but never finding, and absorbed in meaningless service to the self. The three Ego Mastery Courses are completed in 6 week modules, with small, everyday tasks designed to apply the simple tools and high vibrational information in a consistent, systematic and meaningful way to break the hypnotic rhythm of “Drifting” as Napoleon Hill put it. His book, “Outwitting the Devil” is included. The course is accelerated to allow for quick completion to prevent discouragement, because “discouragement is the sharpest tool in the Devil’s toolbox.”
WHAT THIS COURSE WILL DO FOR YOU
This Course is designed to move graduates out of perpetual competition, conflict and “striving,” be it for approval, satisfaction, wholeness, bliss, enlightenment, or self-realization and into a state of knowing who you truly are and into alignment with that truth. It offers appealing alternatives for self destructive habits.
THE GOALS OF THIS COURSE
To become a house that is no longer divided against itself. This course opens up clear channels of communication to access universal truths that allow you to move into an expansive state of awareness and grace through reunion with your Higher Self.
To reach the 51% level of selfless service to others while being mindful of filling the other 49% of the equation with personal growth and expansion into joy and gratitude.
HOW DOES THE COURSE WORK?
This course combines 12 Universal Principles, applied in a unique manner to help you move out of the separation and duality caused by attachment to the Eight Ego Altars.
This three-part course culminates in an Alchemical Marriage ceremony upon satisfactory completion of all three classes. The ceremony is designed to provide public witness to the integration of the two halves of an individual into one united whole.
WHO IS THIS COURSE OPEN TO?
Suitable for ages 12 and up. This course is nondenominational, free of dogma, and open to all races, creeds, colors, and religious denominations. It does require, however, an open mind capable of critical thinking, ready to move beyond dogma and blind beliefs, into truths that can only be discerned through the heart.
The purest intent of religion was to do what this course is setting out to do: lead you back to oneness with the Higher Self, which will take you to the next step on the journey that leads to Oneness with the creator. That part of the journey gets subverted and hijacked when you are under the influence of the Eight Ego Altars. Until this century, the path back to oneness with the Creator was so confusing and arduous as to be almost impossible. That is why, during the last two ascension cycles, no souls ascended.
Humanity is being graciously granted time to master forgiveness and to develop the all encompassing compassion that leads to genuine kindness to themselves and others for not knowing better and thus not doing better. This course offers the tools to move out of identification and co-dependency with the ego and into alignment with the higher self.
WHO IS THIS BEST SUITED FOR?
Those ready to take a leap of faith that lands them in reliance on the infinite source of power within and into an upgraded version of yourself.
This class is for serious seekers already on a path of ascension who are are feeling stuck and seeking clarity and a simple, clear-cut path to the Divine that has not been cleverly hijacked by someone else’s ego or those still caught up in their own ego dramas.
A sincere desire for truth and understanding above all else, along with a clear intention to become the master of your ego vs. its slave, coupled with a longing to move out of the limits of this 3D reality and into a higher dimension of awareness; and an inner “knowing” of who you truly are. Get ready to embark on a magical and mystical journey that opens the gates to the Kingdom of Utopia.
