An Uncomfortable Truth....

I'm not going to prolong the anticipation by a long-winded explanation on the title of this blog post; I'm going straight to the point.

This world, this human condition realm of experience is not working out. There is no happily-ever-after or utopia here. All material efforts to make ourselves more, better, or different are doomed to failure. This is a tough assertion I make. I can hear the cries and protestations from the ego minds of those reading this post. Does this mean that we should give up on the spiritual ideals with its aspirations of love, higher consciousness, and enlightenment? Not at all. But it does demand that we stop being loyal to the wrong master. For this to happen, everyone has to become dis-illusioned with the ego and egoistic life. That's the central demand of spiritual life. But who wants to do this?

Kali Yuga Prophesies

We are living in what yogis describe as the Kali Yuga* where forces are at their darkest. You have only to look at what is happening in the world to see the truth of this. Millions of people being displaced, global warming, racial hatred, financial collapse, stratification of wealth, perennial war, rampant addiction. So why hasn't this manifest world worked out? Because ultimately it is an illusion. This is the uncomfortable truth, which all realizers get to at some point, albeit only when the consciousness reaches the profoundest level of insight, allowing the real spiritual journey to begin. Up to that point, it's a matter of egoistic striving to get somewhere, an ultimately fruitless and frustrating effort. How can I declare this with such authority? Because it's where I'm coming from.

Kali Yuga Depiction
I have made no secret of the fact that along with my path of devotion I also do transformative self-development training because these programs are all about gaining mastery over the ego. The seminar I am doing at the moment is called Causing the Miraculous or how to authentically generate a miraculous life.
There is no doubt that it is powerful, but the underlying message is that the world into which we have been born will never produce a miraculous life. One of the ideas that we are asked to "consider" — but only if it resonates — is that we are born into a world where "there is something wrong here." Something happens to us early on in life and we make this judgement, after which, there is something wrong with everything, either with myself, with others, or with life itself. If you look at any area of life deeply and dispassionately, don't you feel "there's something wrong here?" This line of inquiry takes real courage; it's not easy; it goes against all of our egoistic patterns. But just realizing and accepting it as fact — never mind resisting or fighting against it — creates an opening for something new and different.

Most personal self-development training is aimed at transforming what we don't know into what we know. We think it's going to make us happier — by being better, cleverer, more confident, or whatever your thing is. 
"Kali Yuga is considered as the Age of Darkness. The Light primarily is lost, but not completely gone. It is hidden and veiled in the Kali – where the Dark Side rules! You can bring back the light in the world around you if you realize and remember the God-within you and by allowing the frequency to flow out of you. Even the people around you do not fully accept what you are saying; they will soon be uplifted by your silent consciousness.

"However, do not expect the people around you to like you or love you. The Kali Yuga within their egos is firmly instilled in their subconscious mind and they are threatened by your mere presence. The self-ego will not give up its power and if the individual unwittingly allows the denizens of the Phantasmal Hierarchies — in the form of addiction, tyrannical powers, alcohol, or drugs — to take hold, then eventually these parasitical entities will attack you."
