gatheringstorm_1It is said that ‘pride makes us stupid’, in that it clouds us from seeing things objectively and distorts our perception of the way things really are.

Through observing myself, I have seen that when my pride has been bruised, it sparks that little voice within that likes to argue, justify and self-talk it’s way through to the delusion of being right. Further, there’s a certain pleasure that comes from this internal dialog that is really hypnotizing, and it takes a lot of effort not indulge it.

This is something that I have been battling with lately. ‘Hurt feelings’. And I have seen just how ugly that little voice within can be, internally lashing out with a ghastly negativity towards the perpetrators of my perceived grievance.

This is where the buck must stop with me. Regardless of the circumstances I find myself in, I must not allow this negativity to manifest.

A Great Teacher once said that negativity permeates though the higher dimensions and actually does harm to others (and ourselves), even though we can’t see it. It’s a grotesque, monstrous pollutant that is absolutely toxic, and if we could only see its ugliness then we would see we have an urgent responsibility to keep our feelings in check.

Whether I am right or not it is irrelevant, so the little internal voice that wants to convince me that I am is a treacherous deception. That voice that tells me how justified I am is a lie.

The truth is, the situation presents me with a choice:

One one hand, I have an opportunity to see this ugly monster within and work towards eliminating it. In that sense, the situation is a gift, a blessing to which I should give thanks.

On the other hand, I can indulge this ugly monster within, and feel justified in harboring the destructive, harmful vibrations of anger, hurt and negativity, deluded that I am right. In that sense, the situation becomes a curse.

Each moment, we have that choice.

Some moments it seems I am winning this battle, some moments (more than I would like to admit) I am losing. But I have to keep fighting from moment to moment, for there is too much at stake. I don’t want to have this toxic monster within me any more.

In this 8 minute video, spiritual teacher Belsebuub talks about the horrible effects negativity has on our lives and on the lives of those around us, and the importance of freeing ourselves from these subconscious states.

No one likes to be negative, and everyone wants to be happy. But simply trying to have a positive frame-of-mind isn’t enough, particularly when we are faced with situations that are unfair, or in difficult situations like an argument with a loved-one, or when someone has done something that hurts us. In these difficult times we can be taken hostage by negativity and become trapped within it, despite our best efforts not to be.

In order to permanently free ourselves from these states and to truly find peace, a serious work needs to be undertaken on our psyche. You can find out more about the techniques to do this here.
