We would like to discuss the topic of self-sufficiency, but mayhaps not in the manner you would expect. We do not refer to it in the sense of gathering and providing yourselves with the means to feed and clothe yourselves, but in the sense of ascension. You see, there are so many out there who are searching and searching for someone to provide them with the means to find the clarity that will help them prevail in their quest for enlightenment, but alas, they search in vain, for it is not on the outside you will find the answers. Let us explain.
We have on so many occasions told you that you already possess all of the skills and all of the capabilities you will ever need to fulfill this quest, but they have been ”conveniently” forgotten, or to put it more bluntly, you have been made to forget them in order to reduce your strength considerably. You have been told again and again that you are not capable of self rule, and you have been given so many examples as to what would happen if you were left to find your own answers. They have told you in so many ways that the result would be mayhem and chaos, and the only way for man to survive is to relinquish his powers to those that have placed themselves above him in the powerplay that has been set up on your planet. In other words, the powers that rule have made you all feel less than capable of handling your own life, and there have been set so many rules and regulations in place that will control you literally from the minute you are born and to the time you leave this existence.
In addition to this ever growing list of dos as don’ts , humanity has taken upon itself to rein in those foolish enough to start going their own way, and no one can be more cruel than those self-appointed guardians of ”the right way to behave”. You have to keep to these strict limitations, otherwise you risk ostracism from your peers, and you will suffer the consequences of stepping outside the conventional borders as it were in so many ways. Therefore, the meeker the better, and those willing to comply with this narrow minded system is certainly rewarded in so many ways. Whereas people like you, who have taken upon themselves to separate yourself from this brainwashing scheme will be hard put to find any reward at all from your fellow humans. Therefore, the temptation to fall for the idea that your own sense of right and wrong is not trustworthy is very strong, hence the need to find someone or something out there to tell you what to do. You have been made so powerless by this system, therefore you have a hard time starting to believe in your own powers again after lifetimes of surrendering to this dictatorial system, but free yourselves is what you are here to do, therefore finding your own powers is vital. Otherwise, you will only fall back into the trap of giving it all away again to this system based upon fear and emasculating suppression.
Finding that hidden core of your own intelligence is not easy, as you have all been under the spell of that insistent voice of your ego who is well trained to tell you whenever you stray away from the designated path. In other words, you will all have a long and hard battle breaking through this wall of self-disempowerment coming from the inside, in addition to the one being forced upon you from the rest of society. But once you breach that wall, you will find the going gets easier, but then, you run into a new obstacle. You will find yourselves surrounded by all sorts of ”experts” in the field of self development, and they will give you no end of good advice in the form of an endless supply of books, seminars and sets of rules that must be followed in order for you to achieve that goal of enlightenment. Well, let us just say that there are a great number of people out there not only making a handsome profit from all of this. In addition, it serves to strengthen their own ego’s need to feel superior to others, and therefore this never ending cycle of subservience and elevated egos who strive to fulfill their own needs will continue.
Make no mistake, there are many good people out there helping others to find their own powers, either directly or indirectly, by their actions or by their words, but there are so many still under the misconception that they need someone else to tell them what is right for them, when all they need to do, is to sit down in silence and search for the truest answer inside. We do not say that you do not need any assistance to find that answer, and this assistance can come in so many ways. It can come in the form of a chance meeting, or in a book, or from talking to someone or attending a seminar, but remember one thing: you are never GIVEN the right answer, you are only being given the MEANS to find the answer, as the answer you are looking for is always, always clearly stated within your own heart.
You must never give away more of your already depleted powers by latching on to someone who tell you that they will supply you with the truth, as they will only be misguiding you. The only one you must listen to, is yourself. And you will be the judge when it comes to knowing what the right kind of keys are that will unlock the hidden treasure you all harbour inside. Discernment is the key element here, as it will tell you clearly what is right for you and what is not, and there is indeed a bewildering choir out there all claiming the right to preaching the only truth. So make sure that you stay self empowered by picking your way carefully through this field of self-proclaimed messiahs. You can only find the truth inside of yourself, and only you can know what steps to take and what kind of tools you need to attain that goal. Indeed, you are masters of your own success, and as such you have everything to gain by surrendering to your own powers, but only if you choose to listen well to the words that not only ring true but that you know deep in your heart is the truth for you. Only then will you be able to regain the use of all of your faculties yet again, and you will stand firmly on your own two feet, no matter what the rest of your world throws at you. Remember, this is in so many ways a solitary journey you undertake, but that does not mean you are without any outside assistance. Just make sure to pick the right kind of assistance, so you do not end up with a set up crutches instead.
