Secrets of the Ancient Magi

All mankind is seeking truth, justice and beauty. We are on a continual question for truth because we only believe the lies that are etched on our mind. We search for justice because it does not exist in our belief system.

We never cease searching, but all is already within us!

We do not find the truth ultimately because we cannot see the truth! It is obscured by the agreements that we have given to ourselves and the false beliefs that clutter our minds. Human beings have a need to be right and consider others wrong. They have confidence in their beliefs and it is these beliefs that condemn them to their suffering.

In fact, life goes on as if we were moving through a sort of fog, a fog that is not even real, that is nothing but a dream, a personal "life dream", made up of our beliefs, all the ideas we have about what we are, all the agreements that we have made with others, with ourselves and even with God.

This is the human condition: bathed in illusion. Mankind cannot see what it really it, nor even perceive that it is not free. It resists life, fearful of speaking the truth. The result: happiness, love, luck and wealth are absent from our life. We are required to struggle constantly, just to keep what we have or keep our suffering to a minimum.

Simply being ourselves is what we fear most. We have learned to live forcing ourselves to meet the needs of others, to live according to the point of view of others, out of fear that they will not accept us or we are not good enough in their eyes.

So how has this illusion come to form part of your life?

The answer is: this is part of your domestication process. You may not remember it, but you devised an image of what constitutes perfection so that you could always try to do the right thing. You created an image of how you should be to be accepted by the world, and specifically to please your parents, brothers, sisters, and teachers, etc.

By trying to do the right thing in their eyes, you constructed an image of perfection that is impossible to achieve. You created that image, but it is not real and you will never achieve perfection in this way.

Not being perfect, you have a tendency to reject yourself. Our degree of rejection depends on how efficiently adults succeeded in destroying our integrity. Basically, once the domestication process is complete, it is no longer a case of doing the "right thing" in the eyes of others. From that time onwards, we are not "doing the right thing", because we cannot conform to our idea of perfection.

We are unable to forgive ourselves for not being what we wish to be. We cannot forgive ourselves for not being "perfect", so we feel bad, frustrated and dishonest by pretending to be someone we are not. The result is, we are not "real" and we wear social masks to ensure other people won't see this as we are afraid people will find out our pretensions. Of course, we are also constantly looking out for people's imperfections so that we feel good about it when we know we are "better" than them.

All humans have a primordial need to be loved and accepted, but humans are also incapable of accepting and loving themselves. Showing lack of self-respect is a sign of not loving themselves. Just observe, how many public figures are acting in self-respect of themselves? They are just being harsh on themselves yet they act childishly ignorant of the fact that they are throwing away self-respect. So how to achieve the image of perfection in the eyes of others, as what Maria Duval asks?

Well, there's always good news. There is no need to live in this state of permanent fear. Do not worry because there is always ancient wisdom passed down from the realm of history and you can learn from this wisdom of life to free yourself from the negative conditioning that has so far blocked your fulfillment in life.
