Eyes Wide Open
The Path Of Seeking Truth, The Attacks We Receive,
The Lessons To Learn
By Bernhard Guenther
The greater the sincerity with which we seek out the truth – and the stronger the voice we use to speak out about our discoveries – the more heightened in intensity the ‘push-back’ reactivity will be, and the attacks we receive shall arrive in ways that catch us completely unaware.
Relationships are (by their nature) amongst the most difficult experiences for human beings to navigate (not just the romantic kind), but for those who are dedicated to truth-seeking and inner work, they can become even more emotionally and psychologically challenging.
Does that mean that pursuing this path is a lost cause – that being part of a larger consciousness-raising movement within the global community is, paradoxically, a lonely and isolating lifestyle? Not at all.
We have to understand (on a primal level) that we are far more powerful than we think we are; there’s a spiritual war underway, and the weapons we possess (in defense and protection of ourselves) are embodied knowledge, awareness, and our aspiration to the Divine – our true Nature – which is calling us forth to embrace this adventure of consciousness as spiritual warriors.
In fact, the greatest deception can be found in occult entities, their human puppets, and the matrix forces fooling us into believing that we are fundamentally powerless and thus incapable of transcending their machinations.
Let us look at this predicament from a different vantage point:
The fact that you are being attacked (and attracting that kind of attention in the first place) shows that you are latching onto something – a larger truth – that is a threat to the Matrix Control System’s game plan, whether it be through the information you share, the ‘voice’ you possess, or perhaps it’s due to simply being who you are (as you shed layers of programming and trauma) and what you are here to do (but may haven’t realized what that is just yet).
Being targeted can show you that you are actually on the right track. It doesn’t mean that you “attracted” these interferences to you because of the over-simplified New Age distortions of the “law of attraction” and your “negative” thoughts, just like Neo didn’t attract Agent Smith’s attacks because of his “shitty attitude.”
But being “targeted” is also NOT an excuse for getting in victim/blame mode [self-pity] or martyr/savior mode [self-importance.] Many truth seekers fall into that trap and create more paranoia of being a “targeted individual” as the matrix forces feed into people’s trauma and target all the blindspots and weaknesses within.
As Montalk noted: “Attacks serve to identify our own weaknesses, thus providing focus for where to take the next step on one’s path of spiritual awakening.”
After all, all there is are lessons and EVERYTHING has a teaching function for your individual soul evolution and for the collective during this Time of Transition in this ultimate adventure of consciousness.
So, activate your spiritual warrior essence, take self-responsibility, and stay grounded in your true Self in service of the Divine.
The reality is that struggle and suffering are inevitable traits to be endured on the awakening path, for they reveal all that is “false” within you and in the world.
The New Age has corrupted this truth by sowing the bypassing seeds of illusion, such as the extremely distorted ideas involving the “You Create Your Own Reality” solipsistic fallacy, so as to have you blaming yourself for your misfortunes.
But it is not black and white, and there ARE moments in life where we do find ourselves in unfortunate situations and challenges that arise through our own blind spots, unconscious core beliefs, self-sabotage patterns, and unconscious behavior patterns due to past trauma, childhood wounding, or refusal to make our shadow conscious which then will act out in the external world as “fate” or we project it on others [as Carl Jung noted.]
It takes a high level of self-awareness, self-knowledge, psychological/spiritual insights, and consistent inner work to know what is “yours” and what is not. This process and the insights gained should be utilized as lessons and reality feedback for your inner work, but there is way more to the ‘larger picture’ story.
At the same time, we do need to be careful in unnecessarily attracting the attention and targeted attacks of “the General Law,” which is the esoteric term for the “Matrix Control System” [Mouravieff/Gnosis]. Many truth seekers also fall into this trap of the “revolutionary mindset,” as Gurdjieff called it, as the matrix forces trigger people’s unconscious stuff to make them react mechanically. “Outrage porn” is a good example of that.
“[..]But it is entirely in his interest not to show the new attitude which he has taken towards exterior life. The ‘World’ will be hostile to him [the seeker], because its own purposes are different; it is not in his interest to provoke this tendency, and even less to keep it alive. The day will come — if he remains in the same milieu — where, apart from rare exceptions he will be openly or secretly hated….
This negative attitude is the result of the action of the General Law [Matrix], which, as we know, tends to keep man in his place. Not being able to do this directly by the action of Illusion, the General Law, when it loses its dominion over the man who ‘moves’, acts indirectly by the mediation of those around him [Agent Smith syndrome]….
The more he progresses with his work, the more he becomes an object of hate. That is why it is said that: ‘no prophet is acceptable in his own country’ and also: ‘A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, among his own kin and in his own house.‘[…]”
– Boris Mouravieff, Gnosis
Blind revolutionary impulses (i.e., truth-seeking without grounding in sincere self-work and carefully-vetted inner knowledge) will transform a person into that which they had sought to fight against: the trap of the reactionary revolutionary mind, which is only focused on the outside world of our third-dimensional reality, locked in a vain struggle against the shadows projected onto the cave wall as we miss the deeper lessons during this Time of Transition.
Hence, the inner and outer work always need to go together, for they are essentially one and the same.
