Easing the Pain

Written by Mathew Naismith

There are many ways to ease the pain of our present environment, religion, materialism, Wicca and new age spirituality of love and light are but a few ways of easing the pain. It is wise to be aware that none of these are right or wrong, they are simply ways of easing the pain. Is religion wrong or negative to a religious person? Is atheism wrong or negative to an atheist? Yes, to anything not of our desires can be seen as wrong or negative, within this perception, only the negatives of an undesired will be observed, this is human nature.

How negative is religion to atheists and visa-versa? How negative is everything else to a new age spiritual person that is not of love and light? Of course the extremism involved determines how negative everything else will be that is not of our desires or vibration.

People like me are simply into wisdom and awareness, this is not usually determined by what we desire but of what actually is, of what we observe in other beliefs and ideologies, not of what we only participate in that is usually governed or controlled by our desires.

Participation; as opposed to observation, is easy to recognise, it's usually linked to a desire rather than to what actually is, for example, God is depicted as a man. Atheism; the mind (consciousness) can't exist outside the human brain, or, there never was or ever could be a God or divine presence. To a person into wisdom, what would we know to be so absolute, but we are because of our desires?

Observation; doesn't work on desires but what actually is. Desires simply don't take part in observation, however, when we also participate as well as observe, we quite naturally express desires therefore create reflections or bias perceptions of what isn't desired. The trick is, try to observe yourself while in participation, yes, observe other people and your environment but be primarily observant of yourself within a particular environment. Most importantly while in observation of your own participation, stay way clear of wrong or rights, negatives or positives as these reflections simply denote a desire and an undesired. Don't judge yourself too harshly for it is natural to be desiring while in participation.

Easing the pain void of desires simply takes one to also observe, especially our own participation, of course as of always, this will be seen as negative to anyone of a desired belief or ideology, this is human nature. What we desire is simply finite in nature and transitory in it's easing of the pain, especially on a collective scale.

One more thing, what you desire creates pain for someone else's desire, avoid this if possible.

The 100th Monkey, Not Human!!

Written by Mathew Naismith

Instincts: The 100th monkey theory is actually based on scientific research which lasted over 30 years. The 100th monkey started with a female monkey washing dirty sweet potatoes before eating them, once the 100th monkey started doing the same, all the other monkeys quickly followed suite. What happened next is other monkeys on another island started washing these potatoes soon after the 100th monkey started doing so.

What's obvious is that there was some form of telekinesis occurring when monkeys on other islands started doing the same thing but only after the 100th monkey started washing these potatoes. This shows that a conscious form can communicate with other conscious forms without direct physical contact, this means humans can also communicate in this way. The theory is, once the 100th human becomes aware or enlightened, the social structure of the world will change in the same manner. This is well and good but there is one major point missing within this theory, humans are fixated to egotism were monkeys aren't!!

It all comes down to monkeys natural instincts, monkeys still utilise their natural instincts, humans as a whole don't as this was replaced by egotistic intentions and desires. Monkeys still to this day exist for a need, however, humans as a whole live primary for a desire and this trend is growing not depleting.

When a consciousness is existing primarily on natural instincts as a monkey, they are going to be a lot more receptive to social changes through the 100th monkey theory than humans. The reason for this is humans have fixations to a very strong influence we call egotism. In actuality, the 100th monkey has worked in reverse, yes, we have social change but a social change of chaos. I don't think anyone within there right mind couldn't say chaos isn't getting worse in the world.

A monkeys needs were met when the 100th monkey washed it's potatoes, when the 100th human expressed egotism, there desires were met which was then adopted by many other humans.  The big difference is, the monkeys adapted a social trend for a need, humans did it for a desire which is a lot more influential. The 100th monkey theory certainly, to me, proves that a form of telekinesis certainly does exist between different conscious forms, it doesn't however say that when the 100th, 1000th or even 100,000th human becomes aware or enlightened, all other humans will inadvertently do the same. 

Desires: How many spiritually aware people talk about desires and manifesting desires today?  If you can't release yourself of desires, this firmly denotes an ego still in control. You must be able or willing to release yourself of all human straits and fixations, this certainly includes desires. Once we are able to do this, yes, the 100th monkey theory will work on human consciousness in my mind, however, for this to work on a collective scale will take the majority of people to become this receptive to this kind of social change. This will not occur if we are still fixated to egoist influences like desire and control.

Monkeys are much more receptive to social change that serve a need, however,  humans on the other hand are much more receptive to social change that serve a desire over and above a need.

We might think we wouldn't have evolved like the monkeys if we didn't desire and especially desire control, this wouldn't have been the case. What we would have done is explored and built upon our minds without destroying all else in the process. I'm going to theorise myself in that natural basic instincts, used in conjunction with receptiveness and our natural exploratory instincts, would have made us more wise instead of just knowledgeable.

How many people desire to accumulate knowledge? Countless, desire is behind nearly all of what we do.

Need: How many people accumulate knowledge for a need, I mean a need that isn't going to lead to a desire, an accumulation of wealth or personal prestige of some kind?  There are actually more and more people doing just this these days. The accumulation of knowledge has now become a need to save ourselves form ourselves. To me, this denotes wisdom where's accumulating knowledge to serve our desires shows an obvious lack of wisdom in my mind.

The fundamental difference between us and monkeys is desire and a desire to control ourselves and everything around us. Of course the human race started off existing from a need, did a 100th human expressing egotism give us the reality we have today? It's most possible and probable being that we were more receptacle to such levels of influence as we were only existing for a need through our natural instincts and perceptions.

It is so obvious things are quite different now, can the 100th monkey theory influence us once again to reverse the process away from our egoistical destructive ways? Very unlikely, we are still well and truly attached to desire over and above a need,  the strange thing is, we (need) to change our ways to save ourselves and everything else around us. I think to make this theory work, we need to once again learn to live for a need for the 100th monkey theory to work, the good news is, this is now quite easy to do. It's no longer a desire to save everything, it's become a need, all we have to do is work towards this need to change our social structure.

We need to be aware this will not occur if we can't let go of desires and control, in other words, work towards living for a need over and above our desires.

Healing a World in Disharmony

Written by Mathew Naismith

My wife at present is reading a book titled, Your Hearts Desire. This book is basically about manifesting for your dreams and desires, it also explains that your hearts desires cannot be manifested through a controlling ego.

Desires: One of the scenarios used in the book is to do with how this person wanted to go to a ball but this person had no one to take her. This person was told to visualise being taken to this ball by a particular man. This of course occurred otherwise she couldn't have used this scenario in the book. You might think her desire were fulfilled but it wasn't, her need was fulfilled. To me, a manifested desire is about control but a manifested need is a totally different story.

So what has this got to do with healing a world in disharmony? Plenty, if everyone only manifested for a need, there would be no desire of wars and other conflicts. You might think, if we were being used and abused by a monocracy/bureaucracy, that we would have a need to conflict with such control. The point is, if everyone was living for a need rather than a desire, these controlling forces wouldn't and couldn't exist within such a reality in the first place. Could you imagine a reality not dominated by some kind of monocracy/bureaucracy, we certainly haven't within this reality as a collective experienced this as yet.  

Controlling: You are not being controlling when you are manifesting for a need, on the other hand you are being highly controlling if you only live for desires. In actuality, you are being controlled by a controlling ego if you exist in this way, if you exist entirely by a need, you are not being controlled and controlling, you are just being for a need. In a sense, being controlled by the ego manifests control within our ego self, we then become controlling ourselves.

There is at times a fine line between desire and a need though, the scenario in the book, to me, tells us of a need even though this person desired to be taken to the ball by a particular person. Would not the person who ended taking  her to the ball also desire to date such a women? There was a need that obviously needed to be met through a desire from both parties, in this case, desire was used to fulfil a need, the desire was not in control, the need was. A controlling ego doesn't want to manifest a need, a controlling ego always desires to manifest for a desire, a controlling ego can also trick us to believe we are only living for a need when it's purely of desire. The intentions of a controlling ego is always of desire.  

A controlling desire will always create a destructive reality, this is wholly due to desires always having a need to desire more and more. This isn't the same when existing only for a need, once a need is met, that is it, full stop unless we become desiring. When this occurs, this is when the ego is in control of us which then manifests us to become controlling ourselves.

Intentions: I think we need to get away from intentions altogether, desires are all about intentions but needs aren't. You might think you have to have intentions to put food on the table and a roof over our heads but it isn't, this is a need which takes basic instincts and intuitiveness. What we are basically doing is replacing intentions of desires with basic instinctive needs, in actuality, by living for a need rather than a desire is getting back to our natural selves. It's not natural to desire more and more until we destroy ourselves or others altogether, no other from of life on this planet does this, even a mindless virus doesn't do this intentionally but man often does this through a simple process of desiring!!

We might think if we took intentions out of our lives, we wouldn't evolve or even cater for our needs, this isn't the case at all. It's quite amusing how the controlling ego keeps deceiving us in this way, all what would happen is our controlling desires would be replaced by basic instincts and intuitiveness once again. Indeed, our controlling desires have replaced our basic instincts and intuitiveness and we wonder why we live in such a destructive reality. Our natural instincts tell us that it is pointless causing conflict if it has nothing to do with our basic needs.

Yes, it's difficult for a lot of people to perceive the possibility of existing without any intentions what so ever, this is all to do with a controlling ego that only wants to serve it's own desires. Can we imagine existing in a reality totally void of  intentions? To me it's obvious intentions would be replaced by our basic instincts and intuitiveness, this of course would create quite a different more passive reality in my mind. Of course a controlling ego doesn't desire this as it would no longer be able to fulfil it's never ending desires. I also think a mind controlled by an ego is incapable of perceiving a world totality void of intentions, such a mind couldn't possibly imagine such an existence, in actuality, a controlling ego wouldn't desire to imagine this in the first place.

A controlling ego hell bent on feeding it's desires cannot perceive a world not in conflict and disharmony in some way, however, a lot of spiritually aware and harmoniously loving people can. Because a controlling ego is unable to perceive such an existence, it naturally manifests a world of conflict and disharmony. Yes, I did say natural because it is natural for a mind controlled by ego to create/manifest such a world.

Are spiritually aware and harmoniously loving people wasting their time trying to bring about a more harmoniously loving world? Not at all, what these people are doing is showing that we can indeed live in quite a different world than what we have manifested. We are showing that a harmoniously loving reality, void of any kind of controlling ego, can indeed and does exist.  It's hard to imagine a magical world like this but they do indeed exist.

Spiritual Needs vs Human Desires

Written by Mathew Naismith


I entered into a discussion on the question of, Does letting go have any power?, as soon as I responded with the following, most people stopped responding.  I will break my responses up into sections so it's easier to follow.

Releasing ourselves from desires: I've had a worsening disability since I was six years old, to accomplish anything, I've had to be extremely motivated through my intentions and yes it worked, my desires to accomplish through such a disability was astonishing.

However, the only time I found true peace and tranquillity was through releasing myself from all desires to achieve beyond my capability, in actual fact my desires of achieving were doing me harm even though at the human psychological level I felt better.

This is the difference, at the human psychological level I needed to achieve, and to achieve I needed to desire which caused me more actual harm which needed even more motivation by me to balance things out.

Now at the spiritual level all I needed to do is be humble and release myself from my desires which I did at times, guess what happened? I was in total peace and tranquillity without having to motivate myself to achieve.

The human self thinks it needs desires to achieve but it doesn't. Desire is like a pushing and pulling effect, we pull one desire in to push another older desire out and so on it goes until we stop pushing and pulling. Guess what causes chaos and destruction ? An endless stream of pushing and pulling one desire after another.

Is it time for the human race to also give up it's desires and fixations? In my mind I think it's desired enough, it's basically at the same point to were I am and probably where a lot of people are at. Did I learn from my own desires? Bloody oath I did but there is a point of knowing when to let go completely, are we wise enough collectively to know when to release ourselves altogether? I think that's still quite questionable but we are a good sign that we are becoming wise and aware.

"To flow smoothly through life. Do some let go."

In my case when I released myself from desires and intentions, life became a lot more tranquil and peaceful, this doesn't work for everyone, you have psychologically got to prepare yourself for releasing yourself in such away otherwise it won't work. This is because we are conditioned, from birth, to have intentions and desires, latter on in life it's not easy to reprogram your mind to think otherwise.

I think it would be nice to teach children from birth to live with as little desires and intentions as possible, this happens to one extent or another in other cultures. I was talking to a bloke in India, he said they were taught from a young age to be aware of the desires of the ego, in the west we seem to be taught quite the opposite.

"Thought leads to desire which leads to Action. Letting go desire will let go Action and will improve your spiritual quotient.It does not advise you to be in a state of Inaction"

I think so, by getting away from the constant pushing and pulling effect, we will actually release our selves from chaos and our destructive ways. A state of inaction is to do nothing about this endless pushing and pulling effect. You would think this takes intentions but all it takes is to release yourself from this constant pushing and pulling effect, once you release yourself from such actions, there are no desires and intentions.

Desires and needs: I think there is a big difference between desire and need here, I look at the human race as needing to release itself after so many years of desires and intentions, the question is, do we need to desire to do this?

Desire is active intentions, this is what we have experienced as a collective all these years, now need is more about passive intentions, there is no actual action because no action is needed, all what one has to do is release oneself from active intentions. It takes a need not a desire to change this. We needed the desires to have a need to stop desiring but what I am saying is we don't need a desire to stop desiring, all this will do is continue the pushing and pulling effect I feel. It is now all to do with a need not a desire.

Wow, Mathew. How long have you been holding this inside yourself. You really have had some interesting stuff happening. That's good. Loved to read what you have said here. Keep on.

Since I was in my early teens, I am now 51 years old, I've only been coming out with this stuff for about four years now.

Like a lot of people like myself, I have basically experienced what the collective has been experiencing, a lot of motivation which took a lot of intentions and desires to achieve, however, all this did was create even more of the same.

I realised this in my mid-teens, however, I had a (need) to experience what the collective was going through on a personal level just like a lot of other people have, what better way to also become aware on a human level of understanding.

Through all my hardships, I am indeed blessed.

I'm sorry that I clash with some people, that I'm afraid is going to happen as I have an unusual perception that does at times clash with other people's perceptions. Nothing is right or wrong, it's just different.

Anger; is of the controlling factors of the ego, it's the ego being in control over our whole selves, so yes anger is very controlling.

The funny thing is once you let go, power and control become obsolete as well because there is no further need for power and control, power and control over what? This is the passive tranquil stage, there is no need of the action of opposing because there is nothing to have power over, including ourselves, because you have totally released yourself from such actions.
