Embrace Your Ego, How the Ego Surrenders! Part 3

Leonard Jacobson is a modern master, who started out as an atheist attorney! His awakening began in 1984 and he seems to have a specialty of helping us get in “right relationship with the ego”, as he calls it.

In this video, Leonard shares his simple teaching of how judgement keeps the ego in control and how you can start the ego’s surrender by being in presence.


“When the ego starts to relax and realize it’s not the evil one: it is not going to be punished; it’s not going to be condemned, and it starts to feel the flowering of presence within you, and it starts to trust the flowering of presence within you and it will gradually begin to relax and allow you more and more fully into presence. Until one day, you’re fundamentally established in presence and the ego is your friend. Your ego is in service, within the world of time. It’s no longer trying to be enlightened, it realizes that’s not its role in your life. It no longer needs to protect you, it realizes that when you’re present, there’s nothing to protect against.

Everything relaxes, but the ego has to see through it’s own dilemma. And it’s going to be reluctant to do that. It won’t do that, it will not surrender. The ego will not surrender until it trusts the flowering of presence within you.

And it will test you. it will test you over and over again until you pass the test. And the test is: the test of judgement. If it can get you involved in the energy of judgement. If it can get you to identify with the energy of judgement of yourself, of others, or of life – any aspect of life, any event in life – you’re not the true master.

Deep, deep down at the deepest core of itself, the ego knows that the true master is without judgement. The ego knows that. Even though it’s forgotten that, it knows that. But deep down, it knows that. And it knows to test you. And for the most part, we all fail the test. We don’t realize that judgement is just an energy passing through us. Let it pass through you. Express it, just don’t believe in it. Allow it, don’t be “for it” or “against it”; it’s just an energy, let it pass through you. Own it, acknowledge it, confess it, but don’t believe in it.

The problem that the ego has in all of this, is that it can’t trust you until there is a certain level of presence awake in you. But it’s the ego preventing you from being present in the first place. So there has to be that sort of cooperation that I arranged with David’s ego that it would permit him to be present, to test the water.

You cannot defeat the ego. No one has ever defeated the ego. The only thing that can occur, is that the ego, with all the right conditions, will voluntarily, and with honor, surrender. With beautiful grace, it will surrender. It will surrender unto the true master arising from within. And the true master is you, in presence.

Who is the true master? I am.

Who is I am? I am.

Where do you go from there? Just silence, presence. I am that… I am.

The I am of you, the I am presence is filled with silence and all around it is endless silence and you are that, too. There’s no limit to you: pure consciousness, perfect presence.”

Embrace Your Ego: Don’t Shred it or Kill it! Part 1

“The Ego is your Friend.” Those words are fighting words to most self help and spiritual teachers. So many teachers tell you your ego is your ENEMY. How can a part of you be your enemy? That just doesn’t make sense to me. Because I had this question, the answers have been coming the past few weeks.

In this interview with Lilou, Panache Desai tells us that “When you can start embracing your ego, and accepting your ego, and understanding that that allows you to individually be [you] in this infinite ocean of oneness; it’s your ego that allows you to express yourself uniquely. How brilliant is that? So when you start embracing your ego and understanding its function, it becomes your friend and then it works with you and for you, in your life, instead of against you.”

Stuart Mooney on Enlightenment and Awakening

Stuart MooneyThe Moscow, Russia group of Oneness Blessing givers interviewed Stuart Mooney in January, 2011. In this interview (no longer on 1ness channel on Vimeo), Stuart starts out by answering the question, “What’s the difference between God Realization, Awakening and Enlightenment?”

Here is a section of this that I transcribed and titled:

“You can’t use the jailer to get you out of jail”

Once you see who’s looking at those things, you don’t need any more. Yogis in India go around with turbans and diapers and they’re happy as clams. It’s not outside, it’s inside. And the only way to solve the inside is with Divine Grace. Something other than your head has to solve this.

The greatest realization I ever had was in 2006, when I’m sitting in front of the Guides in India and there were 80 old men like me, who have studied with various yogis for 40 years. We’re all broke and miserable and sitting in front of the Guides [at the Oneness University in India]. And this was our last hope.

So, some of these smart, old guys are saying, “Oh, I am the witness of the witness of the witness watching my mind.”

The Guide says, “Your mind made that up.”

And he goes, “No, no, no, but I ‘m the witness of the guy witnessing the guy making it up.”

The Guide says, “Your mind made that up, as well.”

Then I had the shocking experience that made me stand up in front of the Guides and go, “Oh my god, you can’t get out of this!”

You can’t use the jailer to get you out of jail!

You’re using the machine that has you trapped to help you to get untrapped. It has a vested interest in keeping you trapped. So, if you get untrapped, then the mind is out of a job. And the mind vanishes.

So the mind’s job is to never get you to the answer. It’s just there to keep you busy. Life is like a circular building: the mind tells you the answer’s just around the corner, but there are no corners in a circular building, you never get around the corner.

So, when I said, ‘You can’t get out of it’. The Guides turned to me and they said, “Do you admit defeat? Do you surrender?” They said, “Do you realize that life has completely tricked you and even Enlightenment is made up? And you meditated for 40 years and spent your entire wealth for nothing?” And at that moment, my head exploded and I had my Awakening.

I went back to my room, I laid down in my bed and I thought to myself,  “If it’s completely hopeless and I can never get out, then I don’t have to waste my time seeking anymore.” A great peace came over me. I was Free.

That’s how that works!

“Light of Eternity” Russian Healing Movie in English

This YOUTube English dubbing of the Russian film, Light of Eternity is creating quite a stir in the Pacific Northwest. In the film, people tell of regenerating organs and growing new teeth. Arkady Petrov is the subject and he runs centers in Russia that teach people these methods. He also has authored a triology of books in Russian only, at present, called Creation of the Universe. The three books are entitled: Rescue You; Rescue the World in You and Rescue the World Around You

Gratitude, Obedience, Loyalty and Devotion on the Spiritual Journey

Allan Chuck, a World Wide Representative of Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha, gives valuable insights in this teaching on Total GOLD. Whatever your spiritual journey might be, this teaching has many keys that could help you along your way.

Gratitude: Who and what are we grateful for?
Obedience: What is obedience?
Loyalty: Who are we loyal to?
Devotion: What is Devotion?

In Dr. Sha’s book, The Power of Soul, he invites you to make a vow of Total GOLD. This section is near the beginning of the book and when I read it I was a bit miffed, “Am I ready for that or not?” I did not make a vow. That section of the book haunted me as I finished reading the book. I felt the importance of doing something like making a spiritual vow would be profound, beyond even the importance of making a marriage vow.

The more I contemplated this vow, the more I thought how, to make such a vow, it would signify that I have truly realized I am a spiritual being having a human adventure. It would signify that I had really recognized and accepted that I was taking responsibility for everything in my life, because I AM everything in my life.

I continue to contemplate the import of taking such a spiritual vow. In the meantime, I have appreciated Allan Chuck’s teachings and await more installments as he hinted there could be quit a few on Total GOLD.

Braco Healing Gaze 7-Second Rule Video

This year, 2010, my attempt to create a Braco Healing Gaze video for myself got me in a bit of hot water. Unfortunately, I did not login to my YouTube account for 6 days after I posted the video, so I wasn’t aware of the request to remove it from Jane Sibbett, the producer of the most recent English-language Braco videos.

What I did was, I used about 1.5 minutes from another fan’s Healing Braco Gaze video and repeated it a number of times to equal about 9 minutes of gazing. I made one with a nice sound track from Raphael’s Music to Disappear Into II (Surrender) and I made a second one with no music (play your own; I had in mind a Theta brain wave track, personally).

The two videos were up on YouTube about six days and garnered over 500 views and over 200 views, respectively. Today I logged into my YouTube account and saw the messages from Jane, as well as several from people thanking me for the video. I have heard that YouTube becomes like a social website (or is one?) where you have to be regular, or perish… and now I believe it.

I certainly never wanted to do anything against Braco’s wishes!

Jane Sibbett (Update: 2020 she works for herself, with her own unique healing gift!) wrote a very gracious letter asking me to remove the two videos and said that she was writing at Braco’s request. (Please forgive me, Braco! I’m sorry.) She said that Braco was told guidelines by Spirit for his gazing live, in DVDs and online. For DVDs and online, the gazing is not to be shown for more than 7 seconds. Anyone who films or produces for Braco would know this.

So I have removed the videos and have made a short video about this 7-second guideline in the hopes that other Braco fans will honor his requests. It seems there are a number of videos with footage from live events which is being used without permission from Braco.

Personally, from my experience originally watching the 1.5 min gazing on YouTube and manually restarting it for about 10 repeats, I hope that Spirit will eventually allow longer gazing DVDs so more people can experience Braco’s gift. I really think the energy can come through longer sessions on video format also.

Live & Kidney Ho’oponopono Meditation Video Backstory

If you feel inspired to do so, join me in my Ho’oponopono meditation to clean and erase the programs I share with Christina which are contributing to her health issues.

UPDATE: Christina passed this plane Sunday morning, Jan. 24, 2010

You can continue to use this video to help you to clean memories associated with liver and kidney issues, of your own or someone with failing liver or kidneys or needing a liver transplant. Where I say her name, replace it with yours or your friend’s.

[Previous Update:(From Becky Davidson) Christina was rejected for the liver transplant list. As we feared, they felt she was too sick to even survive the operation. Also, they try to be really sure that a candidate will not reject the organ, as apparently this is a horrific situation, much worse than what one suffers with the initial liver disease. Christina has weighed a few options presented to her and has decided that she will come to our home for hospice care. This land has been her home for the past few years, and it is where she will be most comfortable. We will continue to work on her healing and are asking that you keep her in your focus also. We are not only believers in miracles, but creators of them too! “]

When I heard of Christina’s kidney and liver failure – for the first time since hearing of the failing health of family and acquaintances – I did not feel helpless. I did not feel like I couldn’t do anything about it.

I recall in my first Beginning C&E event at RSE (1994), Ramtha said the reason we can’t look a cripple in the eye; the reason we can’t look a bum in the eye is because we forgot how to heal them.

Recently I realized, the only way I can potentially help anyone is by taking care of myself first. I must take responsibility for whatever is in me that has contributed to another person’s woes… when they come into my awareness it means their woe is STILL IN ME. Even if it is at the fringe of my perception, it is in my perception and it is mine.

But, I can’t  analyze it and try to figure out exactly what is our connection. It is somewhere in the subconscious mind. My subconscious mind knows; I don’t have to. It can petition Divinity to erase the programs that are playing unceasing in my mind. I just need to ask. I just need to make the choice for Freedom.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient practice that has been updated for our times. While it stems from Hawai’i, its ancient roots are in Lemuria.

It is simple. Just saying “I love you” and/or “Thank You” starts the cleaning.

Ramtha’s teaching on Forgiveness and Love from 1981, which was published in the February 1998 Golden Thread says it all. I ‘coincidentally’ pulled it out of a bag of old Golden Threads a few days after experiencing my first Ho’oponopono weekend seminar on DVD.

With no expectations, I share this meditation with others. The important thing is that I have done it for me. If it inspires you in any way: if it contributes to Christina’s healing, that is a bonus. I know it is cleaning memories from my subconscious programming that I share with Christina and I thank her for being in my life.
