Video - Can you imagine a world where electricity flows in an open and free market? Nicola Tesla did. But before his vision of free energy could be realized the elite oligarchy seized control and monopolized an entire industry which it controls to this day. Ever since the 1970s there has been a concerted effort to bring all hydro systems under the umbrella of the North American Union.

Nikola Tesla-1Terence Newton, Staff Writer
Waking Times

In April 2014 we reported on a seemingly exciting development in the pursuit of free energy. Making headlines around the world, an organization calling itself the Fix the World Organization, represented by ‘Hope Girl‘ publicly released open source plans for an free energy device called the Quantum Energy Generator, or QEG for short. Public interest in the device and in the plans was intense for a spell, and many people chimed in about the efficacy of such a device, with some showing tremendous optimism and others offering reasons why the device and the plans would simply not work as advertised.

“This new power for the driving of the world’s machinery will be derived from the energy which operates the universe, the cosmic energy, whose central source for the earth is the sun and which is everywhere present in unlimited quantities.” -Nikola Tesla

The QEG is based on a patent of the famous Serbian-American scientist, inventor and engineer, Nikola Tesla, and was re-designed and modernized by inventor James M. Robitaille​. The following is a short description of the QEG by Fix the World:

“An average modern household requires 5-10KW of power to operate.

A conventional generator needs 15KW to produce 10KW of power.

To produce these 15KW of power we rely on gas, diesel, propane, coal or other products that can be metered creating profits for the oil industry.

130 years ago Nikola Tesla invented and patented an energy generator. This is a resonance machine that only needs 1KW of input power to produce 10KW of output power. His patents are now in the public domain.

The Fix the World Organization has reproduced Teslas design with a few modern twists to generate the same results. Our Quantum Energy Generator (QEG) provides 10KW of power output for less than 1KW input, which it supplies to itself.

We have freely given this technology to the people of the world. We’ve open sourced a full set of instructions, user manual, schematics and parts list for any engineer to follow and reproduce the same results.

How the QEG works:

First we use a starting power source, such as an outlet or a crank to power the 1 horsepower motor. This motor spins the rotor in the generator core. The unique oscillator circuitry configuration in the generator core causes resonance to occur. Once the core achieves this resonance it can produce up to 10KW of power, which can then be run through an inverter to power the motor that spins the rotor. You can then unplug the motor from the original power source and the generator will power itself.” [Source]

Shortly after the announcement and the release of the open source designs, the organization released a video, taken in Morocco, of a working QEG that was switched on in front of a room full of applauding, celebratory onlookers, apparently showing that the device worked as described. Since then there has been little new information about the QEG, and many people hopeful that this device is the real thing are still wondering if it actually works or not.

According to recent statements on the Hope Girl website, there are currently 60 QEG’s being built around the world, and after having experienced some set backs due to public negativity and betrayal, the organization is “finally getting some of the results we’ve been looking for!” Although, we don’t know exactly what this means.

Working free energy devices that are made available to anyone who has the gumption to build one would represent a major shift in the world of energy, and potentially the dawn of a new era for the planet. Historically, however, claims about working free energy devices have always seemed to come up short, and to date there is solid evidence that any such functioning device has been built.

So, is the Quantum Energy Generator the real thing?

Since the release of the plans for the QEG, and the video of the machine in Morocco, there has been almost no new details about the efficacy of this device. There are very few videos on the web of individual inventors constructing the device, and no one has yet to convince the world that the machine works as advertised. To the contrary, many independent inventors and scientific tinkerers have made various claims that the device is a hoax, and that the demonstrations videos we’ve seen so far are highly questionable and easy enough to fake.

The QEG

Pointing out that it looks like the machine was actually plugged into A/C current during the Moroccan demo, some skeptics are saying the whole design is a fraud and the organization is merely trying to raise money by offering expensive buy-ins and consulting fees in order to help get the machine working for eager inventors.

Back in April, another group in Taiwan did release a short video of the device supposedly working, but once again, it is impossible to verify from watching the video alone, and therefore, the question still remains if this is a working model or not.

In conclusion, it would be a let down if this turned out to be another free energy hoax, but there just is not enough evidence yet to make a call either way, unless of course you have been able to construct this and have it working. If anyone can offer proof of this concept, either proving it works, or proving it does not, then it would be great to see.

After all, we do know that the world’s energy needs are being met in ways that are seriously contributing to our destruction, and any hope for a working free energy device should be thoroughly vetted.

If you have any additional insight or info on this device, please share in the comments section below.

Cancer Diet Nutritional FoodsAlex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Valerie Warwick spent 17 years as an oncology nurse and has recently made a major life change, quitting her job, and beginning her new mission of helping people to understand the link between nutrition and surviving cancer.

What would possess an oncology nurse to give up a lucrative career as a cancer nurse to speak out publicly on behalf of nutrition and natural medicines to cure this modern plague?

Her Story

During her youth, her father had throat cancer and her mother suffered terribly from multiple sclerosis, and at 20 years old she was caring for both of her parents. In those days cancer treatments were very invasive and after her father had much of his neck and throat cut away to ‘heal’ him, he died leaving a lasting impression on Valerie. With a long family history of nursing, she decided that since she was still caring for her mother, she might as well become a nurse herself, and began her medical studies.

After finding a permanent position in an oncology ward, she quickly began to question the methods being used, but justified what she was witnessing by telling herself that this was the cutting edge of cancer care and that after time better methods would be discovered and implemented.

“How can you be giving poisons to people and expect them to heal?” – Valerie Warwick

In 2008 her best friend was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, which was devastating, and Valerie knew that any treatment offered by her doctors would not cure her, but would instead cause her to suffer horribly. Just as many concerned people do when a loved one is facing this end, looking for any answer, she began researching everything she could find about alternative therapies, treatments, nutrition, and natural cures.

She discovered that diet may be more critical to health than the medical establishment had acknowledged, and began a personal transformation to improve her own health. She quickly realized the impact of diet in her own life, although, sadly she was unable to provide guidance for her friend who died a year and a half later after suffering through the horrifying conventional treatments of colon surgery, cutting out half of her liver, radiation and chemotherapy.

Thus began a serious paradigm shift in her understanding of how to survive cancer. As she started to hear more stories of people’s success with alternative therapies, she started to look at patients differently, and what she discovered that what most patients really need, first and foremost, is better nutrition. She says that many cancer patients were so nutritionally depleted that they were literally starving to death, and that their bodies have nothing to work with in order to heal. Additionally, she realized that their immune systems were being destroyed by conventional treatments, in a double-whammy that guarantees that most cancer patients will not survive.

The Interview

She tells her story in this timely and important interview with Chris Wark, a cancer survivor who is on a crusade to share his story of survival with the world. Chris’ journey is also unique. After having been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer at the age of 26, he committed himself to finding a natural cure without using chemo, radiation or surgery to heal himself, and is alive and healthy still today. He started the website, ChrisBeatCancer.com to share his story and help people understand the huge amounts of information on alternative cancer therapies.

In the interview, Valerie shares the wealth of her experiences in treating cancer, and talks about why cancer doctors are not allowed to discuss alternative treatments with their patients. She also discusses the impact of stress on cancer patients, how doctors profit from chemotherapy, and even takes a look at the potential of cannabis oil in treating many different types of cancers.

Please share this important story with anyone you know who is suffering from cancer or who is helping someone else become a cancer survivor.

Here is a timeline of the topics discussed in this interview:

9:26 What cancer patients need to know before agreeing to conventional treatment

13:35 The nutritional advice cancer patients get from doctors

14:47 The critical importance of vitamin C for cancer patients

23:00 How doctors profit off of chemotherapy

24:44 Why Doctors are not allowed to offer any other therapies

29:23 Why she finally left oncology

30:11 What she learned after working in several alternative clinics

31:31 The benefits of Oxygen, Ozone Therapy and EWOT

36:00 The impact that stress has on the immune system

38:00 Essential tests every cancer patient should have

40:00 What every newly diagnosed patient needs to know

43:00 Cannabis oil

Cannabis NugAllan Badiner, Alternet
Waking Times 

We’ve only discovered a fraction of medical marijuana’s potential for treatment.

There are now legal medical cannabis programs in 23 states plus Washington, DC, with pot fully legal for adults in two other states. Ironically, however, the actual healing power of the plant has barely been tapped. Smoking marijuana with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), or better, vaporizing it (using a device to bake the plant material and inhale the active ingredients), has an indisputably palliative effect and can be medically useful for pain relief, calming and appetite stimulation. It already has confirmed benefits against glaucoma, epilepsy and other specific diseases and disorders. It also gets people high. THC triggers cannabinoid receptors in the brain and this produces the sensation of being stoned. These receptors are found in the parts of the brain linked to pleasure, memory, concentration, and time perception.

But, based mostly on research overseas there is an increasing consensus that the medicinal benefits of psychoactive THC pale in comparison to the non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) from the leaves of the same plant–raw and unheated. Depending on the strain, some plants are high in CBD but also contain a lesser amount of THC which is said to enhance the healing potentiality. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC (for example, suppressing the appetite vs. stimulating it). CBD is beginning to be recognized by researchers at mainstream medical institutions around the world as a potentially very powerful weapon against cancer.

Researchers Sean D. McAllister and Pierre Desprez, who conducted studies of CBD’s effect on cancer cells for California Pacific Medical Center, suggest that these non-psychoactive compounds from the cannabis plant might, in short order, render chemotherapy and radiation distant second and third options for cancer patients. Based on a more recent study, McAllister and Desprez feel that CBD’s “could stop breast cancer from spreading.”

Dr. Donald Abrams, a cancer specialist and professor of integrative medicine at UCSF, conducted early trials involving THC medical cannabis, and now he is excited about the powerful impacts of CBD on cancer cells. The National Cancer Institute was busy researching this in the 1970s, Abrams explains, but restrictions on the use of cannabis for research in the United States resulted in most of the research on this subject disappearing in the U.S., and being picked up in other countries, such as Israel, Spain and Italy. He says existing studies point to a remarkable ability of CBD to arrest cancer cell division, cell migration, metastasis, and invasiveness.

Other studies point to CBD as having great promise as a defense against Alzheimer’s disease. In a 2006 study published in Molecular Pharmaceutics, a team of University of Connecticut researchers reported that cannabis “could be considerably better at suppressing the abnormal clumping of malformed proteins that is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease than any currently approved prescription.” The research team predicted that cannabinoid-based medications “will be the new breakout medicine treatments of the near future.”

Medical cannabis has a long history of use, starting in India, and then in China and the Middle East some 6,000 years ago. It came to the West in the 1800s, where it was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopeia until the 1930s. Used for over 100 ailments, cannabis was a favorite of our grandparents for cough remedies, analgesics, and tonics and was available over the counter at every local drugstore as well as companies such as Sears, Roebuck and Co. Banned in 1937 via the Marijuana Tax Act as part of a politically and racially driven prohibition craze, it was gradually removed from the pharmacopeia and research was discouraged and later prohibited via drug scheduling. The FBI linked the herb with insanity and claimed a direct correlation between cannabis and violence, and even death, especially when used by people of color.

Currently, science increasingly recognizes the role that cannabinoids play in almost every major life function in the human body. It wasn’t until 1990 that endocannabinoids, produced by the human body, were discovered to act as a bio-regulatory mechanism for most human life processes and have receptors sites throughout the human body. CB2 receptors are found almost exclusively in the immune system, with the greatest density in the spleen. These CB2 receptors appear to be responsible for the anti-inflammatory and other newly recognized and very significant therapeutic effects of cannabis.

Cannabis medicine has distinct advantages. CBD, as well as THC, can be given in massive doses with no side effects. In fact, it has performed very effectively as an anti-psychotic when given in high doses. CBD selectively targets and destroys tumor cells while leaving normal healthy cells unmolested. On the other hand, chemotherapy and radiation are highly toxic and indiscriminately injure healthy cells in the brain and the body. Industrial hemp is often high in healing CBD and very low in THC. Hemp CBD is a waste product — it’s thrown out by the ton every year when it could easily be harvested for tumor shrinking.

Medical cannabis farm Tikun Olam in Israel has been developing a strain of cannabis that is high in CBD (15.8%) but very low in THC (1%). This new strain is called Avidekel and seems to have the highest CBD to THC ratio of any other variant strain. Zack Klein of Tikun Olam told Reuters: “Sometimes the high is not always what is needed. Sometimes it is an unwanted side effect. For some of the people it’s not even pleasant.”

The THC industry and its users worry that once CBD medicine grows in popularity, the medical badge might be torn from the sticky buds that makes being “stoned” possible. Aside from THC’s significant medical benefits, surely its ability to make people feel happier and less stressed should not be considered without therapeutic value. More likely, all options will thrive, and 1,000 cannabis flowers will blossom: Indica, Sativa, CBD + THC, CBD Only, etc.

Meanwhile, it’s useful to note that since 2003, the U.S. federal government has held a “medical patent” for the marketing of cannabinoids as antioxidants or neuroprotective agents. The patent states that cannabinoids are “useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases such as inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.” However, stoners may have it all wrong, medically speaking. It is unlikely a person can get a sufficient level of cannabidiol (pronounced kan-nəbə-dī’-ˌȯl) from smoking the raw plant to impact diseases like cancer in a curative manner, says Desprez.

The marijuana plant offers many uses, but it may come as a surprise to most users that you have to choose early in a plant’s life if you want it to make you high or to heal you. Research suggests that cannabis is most beneficial when the whole spectrum of cannabinoids are represented, including some THC. It is the ratio of cannabinoids in a specific strain of cannabis that most determines its therapeutic potential.

Juicing the cannabis leaves raw, along with some carrots or other green veggies, has proven very beneficial as it involves the ingestion of the acid form of cannabinoids, which are non-psychoactive (even the THC). Cannabis oil also has enthusiastic fans who claim it has cured their cancers. In India there are still large numbers of people who partake in an ancient practice of having a fresh raw cannabis drink called “Thandai” in which fresh cannabis leaves are made into a paste along with almonds, milk and sugar. This tasty drink is often consumed at religious festivals, and in some cities the government maintains distribution points for cannabis. A rolled sweet ball with similar ingredients is called “Bhang,” familiar for over a century to many Western seekers walking the ghats of sacred Banaras. Cannabis edibles in the West are emerging as one of the fastest growing new sectors of the food industry. Dispensaries in 18 states offer such goodies as ice cream, cough drops, peanut butter, honey, saliva tea, and myriad baked goods and savory snacks–all dosed with THC.

Given the huge potential market for non-psychoactive cannabis, the introduction of CBD-rich medicine at the dispensary level has been surprisingly sluggish. Owners have been reluctant to stock CBD-rich strains or edibles because their present customers are seeking —or are not adverse to— cannabis that provides euphoria or sedation. THC content is a known seller. Once the medical benefits of non-psychoactive cannabis become more widely known, one can only imagine the variety and volume of CBD-rich foods that will rush to market.

Smoking, as opposed to vaporization, may be the least effective method of using cannabis as a medicine. But many raw cannabis users are convinced that CBD is the source of medical miracles. Restrictions on research have impacted the accuracy with which we can prescribe cannabis and determine the most effective and least harmful ways to utilize its benefits. Perhaps in the very near future, instead of smoking cannabis to reduce nausea from chemotherapy, cancer patients will be consuming raw non-psychoactive cannabis, and be healed without having to suffer the additional damage of radiation and chemotherapy at all.

As the elephant ages, it could easily break free from that rope at any time, but it doesn't.

The post Seeing Through the Veil of Your Limitations appeared first on Waking Times.

Infinite SoulMichael Forrester, Prevent Disease
Waking Times

There is nothing you cannot be, because you are everything and from everything. You are part of all that is. You have devised a veil which keeps you from remembering our true history. It keeps you from remembering your true origin of who you are and where you came from. The true power of humanity is so great that it was necessary to create this reality full of limitations and duality. Otherwise, it would not be a game at all. We would all realize our true power and the game would be over. So why do we persist with this illusion?

To experience. To have a human experience we must attach to at least one emotion here on Earth. It could be love, fear, anger, greed, lust and many others. It could be one emotion or all of the above. But without attaching to at least one emotional base, we could not stay here on Earth. We would realize our true power and the game would be over. So we must experience limitation the its fullest to remind us that we are human.

Humanity is very much like the elephants that are tied to a rope from birth. As the elephant ages, it could easily break free from that rope at any time, but it doesn’t. It accepts the restriction because it does not realize as it ages that its strength exceeds what it perceives as a limitation to its freedom. It is conditioning that keeps elephant from understanding its power.

Conditions and Limitations Have Purpose

We equally place conditions on ourselves and agree to them. We agree we cannot stay young, so we get old. We agree we cannot be happy, so we remain unhappy. We agree we cannot be rich, so we remain poor. We agree we cannot be healthy, so we remain diseased. The list goes on. There are others who do not agree to the above to they flip the coin. They agree they cannot be unhappy so they remain happy. As you can see each of these conditions above can be reversed.

We have hard-wired these limitations within our energetic construct so that we can have experiences and learn. Learn that we are limited human beings in our physical form. Many who become aware of the veil would like it removed. However, the instant the veil is removed, we would leave planet Earth and move on to other experiences. There would be no further purpose for being on the planet. When there is no veil, we remember who we are. That’s part of why you are here at this very moment…to remember who you are while in a physical body.

All Experiences Lead Us To Higher Learning

We are collecting a wide variety of experiences, some painful, some pleasurable and some in the middle of both extremes. Every single one of those experiences is extremely valuable to the soul and collective of humanity. In the depths of darkness, fear and pain comes incredible learning for the soul. On the other side we understand why this pain must be experienced. When we are finished learning, we will know because we will no longer be here.

The goal here is not be become 100% positive and fluffy in all our endeavors. We are human. We will experience anger, pain and suffering, but the key is to change our perspective of those experiences and integrate their purpose. When we face our pain and fear head on, only then will we see what we are made of. We do not evolve when we bury our past as this only causes more turmoil within ourselves. We evolve when we integrate all past experiences into learning for the present moment. It makes us who we are and defines almost every experience we have from that point forward.

The polarity of love and fear is slowly descending. The options are ascending with our vibrational alignment. We will see things from much larger perspectives and positions more closely connected to our source energy where more transparency is available. Simply put, perception is changing. At this moment, the grand scale that humanity is embarking on from a spiritual perspective is unrealized. We can’t fully see it for what it is because there is far too much chaos. But out of the chaos comes creativity and change.

Your Perspective In The Next Year Is Paramount

The difference right now is how will you interpret crisis? Will you step into fear or into love. Fear of the unknown still divides the planet by a significant margin. The planet is slowly dividing into those who cannot escape their realization of fear and those who can and realize its purpose. Where do you want to be? You can be absorbed by war, violence, political instability, economic collapse, climate, Earth changes, disasters, etc, or you can be at peace that everything needs to change for a new Earth to be born and it is all part of the process.

Start connecting more with not only other human beings, but other life forms. You are beginning to see the connection of everything and everyone to your growth. Your heart will soon function much better than your brain. The magnetic field of the heart is increasing and emotions are taking on a new meaning. This in turn is moving humanity into a place of accepting all life as equal and as one to fulfill our hearts desire.

There is a reason you feel as you do at this very moment. You may not have felt as connected as you could be, or as disciplined as you should be in the past few months. That is normal because the energy that is coming is paramount to your current state of being.

The coming year will hold an incredible opportunity for growth and there will be a window in the spring equinox where you will need to make decisions in your life and stand for what you believe in. Once you commit to the path deep inside that you know you must follow, there will be no turning back. From that point forward you will not only understand all of the above, but you will be teaching it to others.

Humanity is coming to realize that change is inevitable, expected and sometimes painful. But that pain is only perspective and that perspective will lead you to exactly where you need to be.

The Buddha famously said that the cause of suffering (dukkha) is clinging. In fact, it is the second of his Four Noble Truths. For most people this idea speaks to the things in our lives that we like and want to hold onto, and the things we do not like and we want to make go away.

While there is truth in this view, it is nonetheless one step removed from the deeper truth that most fail to see. The attempt to identify everything that I like or don’t like and what I am holding onto or pushing away is difficult because there are so many. Yet that is how most of us begin our journey toward greater awareness. We attempt to pay attention to everything we are clinging to and try to be better at letting them go, and we pay attention to those things we dislike and try to be better at accepting them.

There is a better way. Rather than looking at the things we are clinging to or attempting to avoid, why not turn that perception around and look at the thing that is clinging or avoiding?

This is the deeper way. It is not the things in themselves that cause clinging and aversion; it is the self that is the cause. It is the self that clings. It is the self that avoids. When we look inward instead of outward, we find that we no longer have hundreds or thousands of things to work on. There is but one. If we solve the problem there, we find that the problem is solved in all areas of our lives.
What are the steps that will help us identify this “self” and overcome its tendency toward clinging and aversion?

1. Identify How the “Self” Came Into Being

What is this thing I think of as “me” that has been experiencing this life through my body? If I look deeply into this question, I find that I started off this life born into a particular time, into a particular family, in a particular region of a particular country. This means that, as a young child first coming into awareness, I was exposed to certain ideas and beliefs that I was told were true about reality. Change any one of these and I find that the ideas and beliefs I was taught would have been different. Change my family, and I may have been taught different religious beliefs. Change the time in which I was born and I would have learned different things about the world around me based on the best evidence available to people at that time. For example, had I been born before Copernicus, I would have believed that the Earth is the center of the universe. Change the country into which I was born and I would have been taught different views of the world. Even changing the region into which I was born can alter what is learned. For example, I was raised in the South in the U.S. I therefore learned to see the world differently than I would have had I been born in the North.

This means that I received a very limited view of the world that, as a young child, I accepted uncritically. I then grew into adolescence and started thinking on my own. At this stage various experiences occurred in my life that validated some of the things I had been taught and contradicted others. This caused an adjustment in my mind in which I accepted some beliefs and altered others accordingly. Yet here I find that had my experiences been different, this process would also have been different. The young child who is molested by a parent or close relative learns different lessons from the one born into a safe and loving home.

2. Recognize That We Have Equated the “Self” Into These Opinions and Beliefs

It is during adolescence that our beliefs begin to harden into the concept of a self. We end up with the idea that we are what we believe. It is difficult to alter our beliefs because we see any challenge to those beliefs as an assault upon our very being. Yet by looking back, we can begin to see that every belief we have is but an idea told to us by another that was in turn either confirmed or contradicted by our experiences. We wove random events into this thing we call the self and then began to see that self as an extant reality—something that exists as an entity in this world. Actually it is nothing more than a set of experiences and thoughts combined through the choices we make into something we think of as the self.

We did this at a time in our lives when we lacked the emotional maturity to make well-informed choices about what to believe. For example, a reprimand by an angry parent may appear to me as a child as confirming that something is wrong with me, whereas as an adult I would be better able to see that the anger may not have anything to do with me. Yet these lessons are learned at an early age, and they are persistent throughout our lives. We may make small adjustments to them here or there, but for the most part, we are bound by them.

3. To Overcome the Effects of the Lessons Learned as a Young Person, We Must Go Back and Look at Them Again as an Adult

When we begin to let go of this set of beliefs that has hardened into an identity, we can revisit them from a more mature point of view. Often this results in seeing that many of the things I learned to believe, were in reality things that I accepted as a child that I would not accept now. This is the process of recreating the self in a new image that is more conducive to who I have become as opposed to being bound by what I once was. It is at this stage that true freedom starts to become a very real possibility. I find that I am fettered by antiquated ideas and beliefs that, though they may have served me well in the past, hinder me today. I find that I am free to let them go anytime I choose.

This is often a frightening part of spiritual development. After all, who am I devoid of everything I once thought of as me? The answer to that question is simple. I am whoever I wish to be. I am no longer bound to any particular definition. There opens up to me a world filled with ideas and beliefs that I never before considered, all of which are there for my choosing. We often hear that we can be anything we want to be, but so often we think in terms of material things. I want to be wealthy, or I want that new job. That is not what is meant by the ability to be whatever we want to be. What matters is the type of human being I will be regardless of external circumstances. I begin to see that with or without wealth, I want to be a kind and compassionate person who is loving and giving to others. I begin to see that being a person who gives to life results in happiness and joy in life, whereas focusing on what I want from life results in pain and suffering.

4. Begin to See the Self as a Fluid Thing That is Forever Changing

The ability to create a new self by revisiting the ideas and beliefs I as a young man wove into an image of the self, affords me the ability to see that the self can be altered at any time. This means that the new self I am creating today is not a permanent creation. It is instead a creation that suits me better at this time, but may be subject to change as my circumstances in life begin to change. This is also the point at which I begin to experience a truly remarkable thing. As I create a new self, I begin to see how my environment changes in response to this new self. This is where the interactive nature of existence is most deeply felt. I see that by infusing my environment with love and joy, that environment it turn responds to me with ever increasing love and joy. The cycle that led to pain and suffering really can be turned around. I no longer know this as a theory in my mind. It becomes instead an experienced reality, and it is this new experience of reality that is the most life altering thing of all.

5. Begin to See That There is no Longer a Need to Identify With Any “Self” I Create

This is the stage of true awakening. The self is seen for the illusion that it always was. It was never a real thing that existed; it was but a pattern of habitual behaviors all created by me. Now I can alter those habits. As those habits change, so too does my environment change in response. Now I have experienced true freedom. It is the freedom from what I once thought I knew. The world was as it was only because I saw it that way. I can now create the world in any way I choose by creating new patterns of behavior that are healthier for me and for those I love. This does not mean that I have changed anything in the material world. I have only changed my relationship to that world. At this point, clinging and aversion begin to dissolve as I see that there is no true “self” to do the clinging or the averting.

These are the stages of spiritual awareness. They lead to an absolute freedom in which my behavior stops being a reaction to life, and instead becomes a conscious response. I am able to choose what I want in my life and what I want to keep out of it. I begin to see that with absolute freedom comes absolute responsibility. Because I choose what is in my life and what is not, nothing is happening to me that I did not cause to happen. This is the true freedom from the tyranny of the self.
