29 Mar Catharsis
Catharsis is the primal first step toward spiritual awakening. ~ Siraj
Catharsis is very important. I have found that many of the people that I seek to serve through this practice simply are not willing to realize how deeply “angry” they truly are. Another word for “anger” is emotional.
I often quite literally weep over my peoples’ indifference. Their obsessive preoccupations with their hopes for happiness undermine every moment of their precious lives. Through their mundane mental fixations of a carefree life in which mere emotional appeasements occupy most of their life and lifetime – they ignore The Way.
Humans, in general, do not realize how noble their spiritual Heart is. Everyone has the Noble Heart. It is just that few feel it much less follow it. How one lives with this Heart of virtue is the very art, the very meaning of living.
Most in this world have lost their connection to the virtue of nobleness that comes through the Spiritual Heart. They have done this through participation in every impulse, every obsession and every compulsion that crosses their minds and bodies.
They willfully believe that all of this constitutes a “normal” life and the state of merely having “fun,” which they believe is their basic right as human beings.
Their agendas for comfort and security are endless and do them more damage than they realize. Every time they fulfill some gratification as a way of vivifying their hubris in order to be self-righteous, they create one more barrier, one more problem that makes it increasingly difficult to return to the presence of Love.
The reason you get sick and die is because you love what misleads you. ~Mary Magdalene, The Gnostic Gospels
The average person, with the pedestrian mentality, cannot and will not be able to recognize this fact. This is why we need catharsis. Catharsis allows us to separate our attentions past our lust for self-preservation through harmful acts of the genetic heart (that show up in our Karma) and to which we are mindlessly addicted.
Living in the virtue of the Heart is no easy task in this world. Such a person must bypass all of the emotionality that would offer condolences for living the typical genetic lifestyle.
The process of catharsis sets into motion an energy that will not relent. This energy is Love. Letting catharsis have its way within fills the our being with the energies of Love and wisdom that are our authentic Nobility. Catharsis creates a space in which we can bypass our emotional and genetic mischief for one precious moment to surrender to the Noble Heart of Love.
This is why catharsis is so important. When done correctly, it ends all of our mischief by stopping the inner argument that is occurring from the state of anger (emotion) that we hold to so willfully. The argument is about how we choose either to be noble or pedestrian. The choice is ours.
How we weigh the choice of living as pedestrian or noble, is telling. Most people do anything that they do for the sake of gain. If you are this kind of person, you will never go far in the inner world. You will have much of the world and then you will belong to it with all of its consequences.
The consequences will be found in Karma.
My effort here is to help you let go of your modalities of living in the fear that breeds hate, so that you are not misled by emotional and genetic tendencies that avoid and evade this truth: that you are here, in this lifetime, to recognize your Karma and realize the Heart of Love that is your authentic nature. It is that simple.
Yield quickly to Love and generosity for the sake of attaining to consciousness
Practice catharsis daily to allow a more profound energy to emerge within you
Let catharsis help develop the horsepower to move beyond emotionality and live through virtue into Love
