Transforming Negative Ideas
"Transform the Consciousness, Transform The Self"
Defining Transformation Of Negative Ideas
In life, there are two ways to Create Happiness.
One way is to Create Happiness by Transforming our Outer Worlds.
For instance, we can transform our world from the outside in many ways:
changing our life style, changing the people we hang around with, moving to another country, by changing our jobs and so forth. And as we start to have better friends, better jobs, better environment, our state of mind will move towards a happier one.
However, creating Happiness through transforming our Outer World can only generate a limited amount of Happiness - this is because we can only change so much of our outer world not to mention the fact that with time we can lose interest in whatever things we obtain.
(By the way this is not to say that there is anything wrong in Creating Happiness in this way - in fact this is encouraged because it will promote a healthy mindset/attitude. The point here is simply in bringing your awareness to the quality of such happiness created through transforming our Outer World.)
The other way of creating Happiness is by Transforming our Inner Worlds.
And this is about transforming the cause of our Unhappiness, and these are our Sufferings - i.e. to release our fears to become less limited by them, to release our doubts to become more loving and trusting ,to let go of the painful past so that we can be present and move forward and so forth.
This is something we all have the ability to do. The beautiful thing about Inner Transformation is that when we transform the quality of our Inner Worlds the quality of our perception of the Outer Worlds will change as well - imagine living a life without being tied down by our fears. Realize that we can only experience positivity as much as our negativities allow us. Thus by addressing the issues of our Unhappiness and releasing them we can expand greater Happiness in life - Happiness which is everlasting.
How do we address our Sufferings?
In Chapter 5. Discovering The Sufferings we have come to know that all forms of Sufferings will always recede back to our Negative Ideas.
To transform our Sufferings will thus involve us transforming our Negative Ideas so let us look at the process in more depth.
Negative Ideas In Depth
Transforming Negative Ideas With Natural Solutions
All of us are on the Path towards Happiness.
We all intuitively Know that there is an inherent need for happiness and to address our Sufferings, i.e. at any given moment if we have a choice we would choose Happiness over Suffering - simply speaking, we would rather be Happy than to be Depressed.
Because of our inherent desire for Happiness over Sadness, we are unconsciously driven to address our Sufferings every day with all sorts of solutions everyday.
I.e. when we are faced with a stressful solutions we will try to come up with ways to resolve it or to avoid it, when someone made us angry we may look for ways to make them apologize to us or change their ways of thinking so that we get a peace of mind, when we are faced with a fearful situation such as public speaking we may think of ways to manage our fears or simply make an excuse not to go through that experience.
The point here is that when we are faced with a problem, we will naturally look for a solution to solve that problem.
However, because we only know the External Cause of our problems, the only solutions we will ever come up with will be external solutions. Realize that when we only address one side of our Sufferings this way the root/seed cause of it will be left untouched.
Most of us have become adept at coming up with outer solutions to address our Sufferings i.e. we've become good at apologizing, we've become good at avoiding people and situations, we've become smart intellectuals at mastering the art of debate and power to get out of suffering situations. But realize that without addressing the Inner Cause of our Sufferings - we will continue to experience the sufferings when the same experience hits us again.
Thus it is important to develop the Knowing of The Self to discover the Deeper Causes of our Sufferings - which are our Negative Ideas. Because as we become aware of them, not only will transformation take place (see Chapter 6. Transforming The Sufferings) but also it will open us to see deeper solutions to our problems and the ways to accelerate the process of Transformation.
I.e. using an analogy - when one becomes aware that the Deeper Cause for one's back pains is from sitting improperly, then one will come up with many ways to re-adjust their postures rather than addressing it on the surface by going to a chiropractor every week.
I.e. when one knows that the Deeper Cause of one's lack of energy is from over-working, then one will re-assess the way they live their lifes.
Likewise, if one knows that the Deeper Cause for one's anger is due to the lack of support for oneself, then Naturally one will discover different ways to address that lack of support, i.e. build confidence, build trust, build forgiveness/acceptance and so forth.
The reason why we have been Suffering for such a long time, i.e. living with our fears, living with our anxieties, living with our anger and worries about things that have not even happened yet and so forth is because we have never been fully aware of the deeper Causes of our Sufferings and as a result all our solutions have been about trimming the grass rather than addressing its Root/Seed.
That is why to Transform Suffering at the Seed Level of the Ideas requires us first to develop the Knowing of The Self so we may Know the Deeper Cause of our Sufferings.
Path Of Creator
Transformation Begins With Responsibility
All of us have Sufferings.
Whether it is our Fears, our Negative Emotions, Negative Thoughts, Negative Physical Health, what we will find as we develop the Knowing of The Self deeper and deeper is that all of our Sufferings all recede to One Seed Cause -
That is our attachment towards Negative Ideas - The Negative Ideas which promote the Rejection of The Self.
Realize that we all carry some sort of Negative Ideas within us.
Negative Ideas are the Inner Cause of our Sufferings.
Thus to Transform and release our Sufferings will require us first to learn about responsibility, in knowing and acknowledging that the Deeper Causes of our Sufferings comes from within. And most people will fail at this step because it is so much easier to blame others and the world for our miseries than to take responsibility for it.
However, this is not to say that one should ignore addressing their Sufferings Outwardly. I.e. to live a life simply letting others yell at us and bully us. The point here is to realize the importance of also addressing the deeper causes of our Sufferings, i.e. to attend to the roots/seed rather than to just trim the grass. The ways of dealing with our Sufferings outwardly is not talked in depth here basically because all of us have our own unique ways of dealing with external sufferings. And also as the Inner Cause of one's Suffering becomes transformed and released more and more the mind will become much clearer and naturally solutions to our external problems will effortlesly come to us.
With Knowing Comes Transformation
To Transform our Sufferings begin by developing the Knowing of The Self so that we can discover Deeper Causes of our Sufferings i.e. our Negative Ideas. And as we discover/become aware of these Negative Ideas we will realize different solutions/ways to accelerate it. The following are some examples of Catalysts which we can use to accelerate the Transformative Process.
1. Developing The Knowing and Stillness
We can simply transform the Negative Ideas by developing Stillness and the Knowing of The Self. This has been talked about in Chapter 6. Transforming The Sufferings. Basically as we become aware of the deeper causes of our Sufferings from within we will naturally develop the intention to move away and release ourselves from the Negative Ideas. And as we develop Stillness and observe our Negative Reactions without adding to them the "weed" that we need to trim will become shorter and shorter as less Negative Energy is given to it for it to survive. Simply practising The Creator's Meditation will help one to develop Stillness and Knowing. Learning about the various Catalysts on the website will help you greatly with transforming your beliefs at the Seed Level.
2. Spiritual Lessons
There are spiritual lessons that we can go through to accelerate the transformation of our Negative Ideas as we become aware of them. As our Sufferings are caused by our attachment to Negative Ideas which promote the Rejection of The Self, these Spiritual Lessons will involve the theme of some form of Acceptance.
To find the lessons one can question oneself about one's own Suffering experiences such as
"What is it that I cannot accept within this experience?"
"What is it that I cannot accept in that person?"
"What is it that I cannot accept in myself"
"What am I lacking to accept The Self?"
And then after discovering the answers then the Negative Ideas can be catalyzed by working to balance what one is lacking.
3. Life Experiences
We can go through certain life experiences which has the power to invert the Negative Declarations. These will often be experiences which will challenge our beliefs, in the more extreme - to turn our lives upside down. Naturally in life we will encounter these kind of experiences because the Universe/Higher Forces will always orchestrate our lives so that we can receive the experiences we need in order to grow. At the same time if we want to speed up the progress we can simply go towards certain experiences to Catalyze the transformation. To know what experiences will help us will require one to develop the Knowing of The Self and the Catalysts on the website will shine much light on this topic.
4. Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and Meditation are the most powerful practices with the potential to catalyze one's Sufferings - that is if one uses them with the intention to develop the Knowing of The Self as one goes through the practice.
The most efficient/powerful way of catalyzing Suffering is to go towards experiences which will bring out Sufferings into light and then afterwards use the practice of meditation and yoga to develop the Knowing of it through the act of Observation. However, going towards these kind of experiences can be intense/frightening/extreme and unsettling especially if one is not fully grounded so it is not encouraged until one has developed a solid foundation of Stillness and wisdom of knowing what to do. But as discussed previously, in life we will no doubt encounter these kind of experiences so simply by incorporating meditation and yoga into our lives everyday will be sufficient enough for us to move forward on the Path at a good speed.
5. Inverting The Declarations
An intellectual way to transform our Sufferings is to simply develop the Knowing of it. And one way to develop the Knowing is to invert the Negative Declarations in the mind i.e. "It is not OK to fail" ---> "It is Ok to fail" with a strong Will. The stronger the Will the stronger one will face inner resistance, and this will provide an opportunity for one to develop the Knowing of the Cause of that resistance.
These are just a few of the many ways we can Catalyze the Transformation of our Negative Ideas.
The 7 Stages Of Illumination
To understand the journey that we are taking on the Path Of Creator better we can lay it out in stages.
1. Complete Darkness
This is when we suffer without knowing that we are suffering.
This is complete Ignorance.
2. Crescent Darkness
This is when we are only aware of the external cause of our suffering.
Confusion is a stage of awareness when one encounters the Darkness of The Self. This is a very good stage because it is an opportunity for us to Know that Dark side of The Self. But unfortunately this is also the stage where people will give up. During this stage it is easy to give up the Knowing because clearing the confusion/darkness can "seem impossible". One may also lack the intention to clear that Darkness because it is easier to just walk away from it. But realize that it is only natural for us to experience confusion and doubt when we discover a part of The Self that is not yet Discovered/Known/Illuminated.
Clarity will slowly come to dispel the confusion as one simply persists in Knowing The Self through simply observing that Darkness/Confusion. To Observe is much like creating Light. It is by observing what is not Known that creates Knowledge thus illuminating that Darkness. Observation is different from Thinking/Analyzing. Thinking about what is inside that Darkness will only create more Darkness.
As one continues to develop the Knowing, one will begin to discover the Deeper Causes of that Darkness/Of one's own Sufferings i.e. The Negative Ideas within one's own suffering experience.
As the deeper causes of one's Negative Ideas are known then one will naturally discover the ways to catalyze the transformation of those Negative Ideas. As more Negative Ideas are released more Negative Ideas behind the Negative Ideas will be discovered. This stage is the stage of Potentiation. During this stage one will begin to discover their deeper/truer purpose/desires and their divine gifts because our Sufferings/Fears are the cause of all forms of blockages in The Self. With each release, greater Happiness is Created within.
6. Crescent Illumination
As the Darkness of The Self is dispelled, one will come to develop the Knowing of The Self deeper and deeper . This is not talked much upon because there is no practical point. But here one develops the Knowing of The Self at all levels and the Creator of one's own Reality.
7. Complete Illumination
As we develop the Knowing of ourselves as The Creator we will come to Know the Greater Creator. As above so below. By Knowing the microcosm the macrocosm is known.
This is just a brief outline of the 7 main stages (Within each stage are 7 stages as well)
In the future a more thorough course will be created to explain the whole process in much more detail - i.e. the blockages we can encounter/ the ways we can accelerate it, the various ways to clear the confusion.
Develop Experienced Knowledge
Whenever we experience suffering, instead of looking for the external solutions also look for internal solutions.
This can be done by asking the question,
"How can I solve this problem permanently?
I.e. so that we do not experience the Suffering/Anger/Fear etc. again.
The Creator's MeditationLink here
Whenever you experience confusion in your meditation sessions there will be an intense desire to run away from it or to analyze it or to reject it. In these instances Simply let go of the need to analyze it and simply observe it as is. This is how we develop Clarity/Light that will help to dispel away the Darkness.
