The short and sweet lesson of this example is: until a person you are dealing with has the ability to change their point of view, it is better to remain silent.
A more recent example is the audio clip playing the words Laurel and Yanni simultaneously. The frequency of your vibration determines what you hear. You may hear one or the other, or something in between. It may change each time you listen. What do you hear?
There are many more examples I could give, and they are all undeniable proof that we can have completely different experiences in the exact same situation and setting. This is why I can do an event where I pour my heart and soul out with as much love and compassion as I can. I often do so with brutal honesty and frankness. Those who are at the same frequency hear the equivalent of “Yanni….Yanni…Yanni…” They understand exactly what I am saying and fully appreciate my intent in doing so. Then there are those who are at a different vibration and only hear “Laurel…Laurel….Laurel…” They sit there listening, thinking to themselves “Who is this arrogant arsehole? Who on Earth does he think he is?” They go away angry and upset, and gossip to their friends in an effort to enlist their support for their existing beliefs. Those who hear something in between may leave totally confused, and want to avoid ever thinking about such things again.
The natural factors behind these examples are the exact reasons why so many haters, critics and bullies make erroneous assumptions and come to ridiculous conclusions. They blindly go about building a case against their target, insisting their outlandish claims and conjectures are the only truth of the matter. When challenged, they immediately put up a wall, blocking any information contrary to theirs. Each time they revisit the experience in their imagination, they only ever arrive at the same destination. So there is no point whatsoever in trying to change their mind. In the complete absence of Awareness, people resort to tactics like demonising their opposition and turning to physical violence to force their beliefs into reality. Add enticements like the promise of 72 virgins… and the rest goes without saying.
Many people suggest that you must only go by your own direct experience. They believe gaining experiential knowledge is the only way to the Truth. But these examples expose the flaws in this belief. Our senses are too unreliable and will limit us to only what we can see and feel ourselves. This is why it is essential to always remain open to other’s perspectives and experiences. It is no different when you reflect on how your own perspectives may have dramatically changed in the past. The nature of consciousness means that they will always continue to change - whether you like it or not. When people can’t or don’t like to change is when internal and external conflict and confusion manifest.
This is why I don’t believe in having enemies or critics. There are those who understand and those that don’t. If they don’t, then I have to accept that I failed to communicate in a way that served us to share the Truth. I do my best, but you have to remember that neurologically, everyone is still only at infant level. So it is all just child’s play, where each individual is in pursuit of their dreams and fantasies, goals and aspirations. The individual’s ego and mindset vary according to its culture and indoctrination.
As the internet and social media have grown, humanity has succumbed to a new all-time low in its attitude and behaviour towards their fellow man. Most people agree that the increase in the incidence of online racism, bullying, discrimination, harassment and a long list of phobias is reflecting in a marked decline in all facets of life. The explosion in the use of personal online devices has had the biggest impact on the younger generations, where such behaviour is now considered normal. In addition, the reality entertainment industry has promoted a culture of narcissistic, self-righteous and entitled people - and I am not just talking about the young generation. This trend is like a cancer spreading through all age groups in all cultures.
Anyone in the public eye leaves themselves wide open to the worst humanity can throw at them. Most sportspeople, stars and celebrities etc. deal with the extremes of insanity on a daily basis. YouTubers like Louis Cole and Casey Niestat, intellectuals like Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson, constantly get bombarded by haters and critics. Many public figures have expressed how challenging it is to stay above the onslaught, but their love for what they do helps them rise above all the negativity.
For a few years, I followed a wonderful YouTube channel, BusLifeNZ. Andy and Amber Cleverly converted a bus into a motorhome and travelled around New Zealand with their two young children. Their channel was truly magnificent and they represented what I consider the very best of humanity. Unfortunately, they completely deleted their channel and returned to living a private life.
One of the reasons they decided to discontinue documenting their adventures was the enormous amount of hate and criticism they received. Unbelievably, they even had death threats made against them! Amber declared how hard it was to deal with all the hate, to the point where it could make one lose faith in humanity. You could not get any nicer people. They just wanted to celebrate life and share it with the world. Every episode was a breath of fresh NZ air. It was so nice seeing normal intelligent people doing what they loved. But they deleted their channel. (I really miss you guys, and I am sure many others do as well)
Another example is how YouTuber Ellen Fisher, a wonderful vegan lady who shares her family’s experiences, was recently vehemently attacked by another YouTuber. The title was “Ellen Fisher teaches you how to endanger your children”. Ellen is the most incredible mother clearly doing everything she can for her children. This narcissistic vlogger took two conscious choices Ellen made in the past for her children and blew them out of proportion. 90% of the comments questioned in disbelief how Ellen’s choices could be completely misconstrued. The critic and many of her followers belligerently and viciously defended the statements, and could not see anything inappropriate. This is a typical case of how two people, who are meant to share the same outcomes, have two diabolically opposed views and intentions.
This behaviour proves that it doesn't matter how pure, simple, natural and whole you are, and what you share is, the haters will find a way to twist and bend everything you think, do and say into something that is the total opposite. To the detriment of humanity, so many potentially great people have never shared their gifts, talents and skills with the world. Many are too paralysed with fear of criticism and crippled by censorship to even bother putting themselves out there. The fact is that the same people are in power today that forged the human condition that led to the said demise of Jesus. Therefore, it is only natural so many people refuse to leave themselves open to being betrayed and crucified by cyberbullies and psychopaths.
It seems we no longer have the right to freely think, do or say whatever we feel is True for us without having to justify or explain ourselves. Haters and bullies adopt a position of authority and deny anyone the right to think, do or say anything outside their own paradigm. Their reality is limited to just Yin and Yang. There is no recognition of any states beyond duality - or their next dopamine hit. The hits come in the form of making a nasty video, posting a critical comment, giving a thumbs down or sending a disapproving emoji - as well as getting a thumbs up from supporters or a reaction from their target.
An enormous number of people resort to the online character assassination - slandering and defaming anyone who doesn’t share their same beliefs and values. A deranged sense of self-righteousness means they attempt to tear down and destroy the reputation of those who contradict the stories running through their heads. They elevate themselves to claim the moral high ground, and with toxic levels of prejudice and bias endeavour to reduce everything down to their level of perception.
Many weak personalities hide behind aliases, just to isolate and protect their compartmentalised identity from any reprise. Their puffed up egos lack any real strength or courage. This cowardly behaviour only reveals how superficial they really are, and that they are unable to perceive past all the archetypes within the Spectrom and see all of Life as the One Self.
People who are stuck in duality become rigid and unable to identify or comprehend true change or growth. Therefore, your transformation will appear to them as the most evil of paths to take. They deny you the experience of transcending all influences and be self-determining. Their minds literally become full of doubt, judgment and question. Every thought is an external projection of guilt, shame or blame, and their desire for fame having brought about their version justice.
Their mental constructs are all in compensation for the initial deficiencies and excesses of which they were a victim. The lack of Intelligence pathways due to this is what determines the traits of their compensated personality. So it is never their fault they are the way they are.
The specific emotion and the degree of emotional charge they have around the particular topic will be in proportion to the actual or perceived suffering they experienced in the past, experience in the present, and expect in the future. All in all, the momentum of this stops them from ever Being Present and able to Truly go within. Instead, they will remain looping in fault-finding mode until the Universe knocks sense into them again.
Because they are stuck in the negative spin of duality, all possible Truth and inspiration around the people or object they are fixated on will be overlooked or vehemently denied and dismissed. Their beliefs and accusations will be the total opposite of what is True and Real - but they will rightfully argue their point because their limited perceptions make it very real to them. The joke is that they will keep giving people pieces of their mind until they have nothing left.
Haters and bullies are not capable of realising it is their own beliefs system playing themselves out, which actually add to the separation and division within humanity. They are too caught up in competition and rivalry, trying to get validation, acceptance or approval from people outside of themselves to make up for what is missing within. The more energy they put into their agenda, the more removed they become from the true inner connection. Until they awaken and see that the joke is on them, they simply will not be able to heal or grow.
It is impossible for them to see that other people make choices based upon a completely different perspective or level of consciousness. Their inflated intellectual or spiritual pride prevent them from being able to realise their opinions are only based on their limited perception and programmed bias. Every attempt to defend yourself will only lead to an even more vicious retaliation. They will continue to headbutt you with conjecture without end. If it wasn't all such a tragic waste of life, it would be hilarious.
It is often impossible to comprehend what these people get out of being so despicable. It is because their agenda only serves themselves, and their endgame is actually delusional. When they fail to see through all the illusions of reality, they only believe what their senses tell them. There are infinite ways to respond, but they are neurologically and intellectually limited to reactions. The projections of anger, hatred, fear and jealousy only causes them to suffer more. It not only severely impacts their own state of being, it also dramatically adds to the decline in the morphic resonance of Life on Earth. This is the exact reason why the Illuminati promotes such behaviour across all platforms.
So many haters are in such a pathetic state that they may appear too far gone. But this is never the case. Or more to the point, it must never be allowed to be believed to be the case. The true power of love and compassion can overcome even the darkest and grossest state. The world is full of miracles. We just have to be open to the fact that even the most evil people are worthy and deserving of healing. The only way we do this is through being empowered with enough awareness to be able to unconditionally forgive. The world is the way it is simply because the true nature of this quality has been forgotten.
However, trying to deal with insanity is often equal to pouring your life down the drain. How many times have you talked with someone for 2 hours, only to have them turn around and go, “Yeah, but…”? Engaging in such activities ends up being a waste of life. Unfortunately, nothing can or will change within them until they have suffered enough to realise their own flawed perceptions. The fact will always remain that it is impossible for a caterpillar to understand the experience of a butterfly until it has gone through the transformation itself.
Therefore, don't make it your business to know what is being said about you. It is just a distraction away from your true inner work. Remember the saying in Zen, “Your opinion of me is none of my business”. That means it is nobody else’s business to know either! If anyone is dumb enough to listen to the opinions of fools, let them listen.
Society lusts for conflict and confusion, and the insane thrive on creating war. Internal and external destruction. They will always try to pick a fight and incessantly bait you into an argument. I suggest there is already enough insanity in this world today. Responding to the madness will only ever add to it. You don't have to meet their ignorance and arrogance with anything more than silent compassion. “Just smile and wave…” as you walk away, and focus ALL your energies on what you are contributing to humanity’s conscious evolution.
What is missing is a code of conduct. In my book and one of my blogs, I share what I call ‘The Conditions of Unconditional sharing’. They are simple guidelines to keep everything and everyone living True to the here and now. It seems very few people possess the level of honour and integrity to share this experience. I also share the reasons why in another blog, “Why do people hate people?”
Life as we know it appears very real to every single one of us. But it is almost certain that each person involved in an event will have a totally different experience of it. I used to experience this on a daily basis when I was with the masters in India. A master would communicate with a group of 18 people, and every one of them would see or hear something completely different. If they sat in a circle, they would all swear their account was the only true one. If those within a shared experience have completely different interpretations of it, then what chance does an outsider have of gaining any truth from being told of it?
I know the masters would play on this element of consciousness, and use it to reveal those who were able to keep their heart and mind solely focused on the timeline where the Ultimate experience of Divinity is unfolding within the All. This is the essence of everything I share. Life is very simple. We are all One, experiencing our Divine Nature within infinitely diverse forms, in all dimensions of time and space. You are either consciously aware of your true place within the whole Spectrom, and living accordingly, or you are not. If not, then it is best you go inwards and stay there until you can.
I have been observing and experimenting in consciousness my entire life, yet I am not foolish enough to claim I know anything, let alone the Truth. I have not come to any solid conclusions whatsoever. This ensures I remain open to the new, and prevents me from forming an opinion about anything - because it is never appropriate to think we can really know the whole picture in the limited form we embody. All we can do is come to Know Thyself.
Therefore, I am only sharing my perceptions and observations of my internal experiences and shared external experiences. I share the essence of my journey in my book The Nature of Life. It is a thesis proposing a model for Life, to be shared with like-minded souls and enable them to consciously come together as a community. It explains how everything is relative Truth based on each individual’s state of being. The sum of ALL our experiences is what is True for me.
I do this work because it is fun - well, it is most of the time anyway. However, many years ago when I started roaming the world I expected to find a conscious community of kindred spirits - where everyone would be like Sadhguru. Now that would be greatest fun. But it seems it is not yet time for that reality. So we must be patient. We have to remain at Peace by staying inwardly connected to that one timeline where it is inevitable we all awaken to our true Nature.
Meanwhile, many people read my book and attend my events hoping to gain some kind of advantage in the world. The only benefit to what I have to share is that it will give you the ability to honour everything for what it is. To the point where it will eventually go without saying. But as you can tell, we are still quite a way of from that being a reality - so I am still talking and writing.
To be clear, I'm not interested in being a teacher, guru or anything of that nature. I would much prefer to remain anonymous. I'm not in any way interested in trying to convince or convert anyone. I simply want to get on with living it with those who share the same intents and purpose. Until this becomes a reality, I will just go about doing whatever I have to do - and as Bruce Lee said, “Be like water”.
It's become a fact that in this world it has become easier to hate than to love. It is easier to sentence a person to jail and condemn them with ridicule than to sing their Soul song or do Ho'oponopono. There are those who claim to be spiritual and humanitarian yet indulge in making rumours and spreading gossip, in an effort to create a scandal to further their personal agenda. Simply ignore such fools. Just ignore them completely. They are nothing more than distractions you need to navigate around on your Soul Path.
If you find yourself in a situation where you are being bullied or hated upon, just realise that you can only be influenced by such things when you believe such things can influence you. Just keep your eyes and heart focused on the present, and leave the past behind, and be instrumental to the future. Only spend your time and energy on those with whom it all goes without saying. Everything and everyone else is literally not worthy of a comment.
It's immediately obvious what a person's intentions are. It is essential to understand that everything a person thinks, says or does comes from a place that is superior, inferior or equal. Everyone treats you according to how they perceive you. When they are strong in an area of intellect but lack development within the 9 Areas of Intelligence, they will feel superior and make out you are less than you who you appear to be. They will try to cut you down and deny you the experience of being more than you appear to be. When people are able to see everyone as equals, they will honour you to be all that you are. This is obviously the basis for unconditional Love, but so few people are capable of actually feeling it.
Some time ago, I asked a business mentor how to go about marketing something completely new. He said it is impossible to promote anything new like what I have to share with the world. The sad fact is that people aren’t open to anything new. They think they already know everything they need to know, or have experienced it all before. History is obviously full of people who endeavoured to share something new and came to an untimely demise. Today, if you try to offer something outside people’s current perceptions, you will instantly cop the most extreme reactions from countless strangers all around the world. (Read my blog on this topic)
If you let them get to you, then the evil wins once again. Many people end up completely demoralised depressed or disheartened. Some people go through an existential crisis when dealing with the insanity (Read my blog on this topic). Ultimately, Life is very short, so don't get tempted into wasting your time and energy on resisting anything dualistic in nature. Rise above it all by aligning and connecting with your Soul Elements. But you will still have to play the game. You just need to be smart in how you play, and which games you play.
So only do what you ultimately want - because in this world, there will be consequences regardless of what you do. If you make decisions on your highest level of consciousness and act with honour, then you will be at Peace regardless of what anyone thinks, says or does. Until you reach that point, you won't have earned your stripes to enter into the true kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
Always remember, fear loads the gun and ignorance pulls the trigger. So if or when a hail of bullets is directed your way, just be like Neo in the movie The Matrix and hold up your hand and say, “NO!”. Follow in Swami Vivekananda’s footsteps and just keep walking South - by learning to mind your business, completely. The, and only then, will you be fit to fulfil what you are here to do - share the beauty of your unique creative genius with the world.
Love and Light
