greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities:
true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self
that sees the world
through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed
about what we can and cannot do."
Yes, it is true: Humans in their majority are schizophrenics. Just the
fact being a 'personality' is demonstrating the split. A 'conscious self'
does not exist. The personality is not conscious about itself only in a
few limited aspects. Information is filtered and interpreted and can't
be received as objective. Nearly all observation is bound to unconscious
self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering
knowledge that a state of vibrant well-being and unlimited possibility
is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to
Personality by its nature is schizophrenic because it exist out of beliefs,
a build up and established self image and concepts of all kind for every
thing, which mostly reflect the need to be able to deal with unknown facts
and so trying to put things into boxes. With this there is created a split
between reality, which is not understood in its wholeness, and an imaginary
world which consist in dreams coming out of wishes. The 'personality' is
constantly confronted with reality and tries to squeeze what shows up into
the boxes of established concepts, all the time reacting because reality
mostly doesn't fit. These reactions, commonly called experiences, are building
up more concepts, confirming the already existing ones. This then is called
'knowledge' or 'self knowledge'.
The need to survive,
as part of the human nature, has forced humans to find even
concepts and with these they not only manipulate themselves but also others
who are still underdeveloped in their concepts. This happened from the
beginning of humankind, when the clever ones found a concept to ban the
force of the thunder. They gave it the name of a god, the 'thunder
gods' and told the
other frightened people to worship to calm them down, putting themselves
into the position of priests and with this holding and establishing power
over others. Has there anything changed in our times? Well, this is still
pretty primitive and so concepts have developed further. The ultimate split
is created by the concept that there exist a 'true self' also called
a 'higher self' apart of ones 'personality'. We are told that we
can choose if we want. Fact is that we can not choose. We are
the personality and the only we can choose is a new concept and then trying
to live it, squeezing it into our personal reality. This might work for
a while, helping us to cope with daily challenges, but still there is produced
a lot of stress, because it doesn't really work. So what is the next?
self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware
of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time."
Now here comes something which probably comes from the realization of an
individual who has gone beyond ones personality and then tried to transmit
information about it. Good intention but it doesn't work. During history
of humankind once and a while there have been individuals who were not
totally stuck in their personality and had insights going far beyond.
So when these people had offered their help, seeing all the suffering around
because of people being stuck in 'personalities', and then they felt urged
to talk about it, all these teachings were integrated into the existing
concepts and new power structures were build up and when these concepts
were assimilated by the common conscious pool a new religion was established,
giving many people the possibility to share the new concept. In our days
the established religions give no space for a new one, but now it is called
'New Age Awareness' with the same result: creating a new sophisticated
split, reinforcing the existing schizophrenia.
we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we
deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We
can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our
Yes, the personality exist out of the identification with thoughts, concepts,
feelings, beliefs, reactions, sensations, properties, etc. There is hardly
any choice possible. Humans are possessed and their possessions give them
the feeling of existence. Even they want to get out of it, they are trapped
and as this gives them a certain frame, a security they don't want to give
up, so they defend this with all means. Fighting is part of human nature,
it gives self confirmation. Holding tied on one's established condition
is part of the survival of the personality and even though this condition
is destructive and is causing pain and suffering, the individual prefers
to stay in this condition instead entering into a real healing process.
This is sad but a fact we can observe around us.
a witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you
you are not those things that you have been noticing about your
you are the noticer."
Indeed, this is a step to go beyond one's personality, although being capable
to observe, it needs a certain condition and that is, not to be sucked
totally by one's identifications. If an individual has gone through a long
way of suffering, being disappointed of not receiving confirmation for
one's concepts or going through the pain and suffering of a chronic disease,
then there might come the moment, when the identifications are loosing
up. But the real dilemma is, that people are also deeply identified with
their suffering, so on one side they would like to get rid of it, but on
the other side it gives them a strong feeling of existence and if this
state is established during some time, then they can't let it go, the inbuilt
nature to hold on is too strong. People prefer to take medication and with
this destroying themselves, instead of going into a healing process, which
could free them not only from their disease, but letting them out
of their cage of personality.
We can observe that
destruction is spreading out all over the planet and even is threatening
the existence of humankind and all other life forms. There is endless suffering
produced by personalities and there seems no way out.
convinces me that whatever new concept is given, this will not help
to get out of one's
personality games, which are using every thing for the same
game and integrating
whatever is said into an other highly sophisticated personality game. But
is there nothing one can do? What would be the right attitude to get
out of one's cage?
I am willing to
do every thing within my abilities to do something for a change of my condition,
although knowing that my human nature will make me hold on what I
believe "I am".
It might be a useful first step that you get to know about your human nature
and start to understand why you are doing things and why not, why you are
suffering, having depressions, why your success doesn't really satisfy
you or makes you addicted for more and more, etc. Although this knowledge
will not change much
and not essentially.
There is something
effective you can do. Let's call it 'StressReleaseExercise'. It is
easy to do and has
instant good results, which can be enjoyed by your 'personality', so it
doesn't built up resistance. Doing the exercise regularly, it releases
accumulated stress and avoids that new stress builds up. On the long run
it will clean up the cause why stress is produced. The exercise works in
a soft way and nothing is forced, the outcome is spectacular although nothing
spectacular might happen while doing the exercise. And the best: It is
not producing any split and it is healing the schizophrenia of the personality.
There is no concept connected with this exercise and to do it there is
no teacher necessary and no seminar or retreat, there is no dependency
created. One can do it right after reading the given advice, which you
can find totally for free at: http://falconblanco.com/release
If there is showing
up any difficulty when doing the exercise, then you can ask for help writing
an email to me or going to the group:
Your inbuilt resistance
might inhibit you to take advantage of this chance, but there is also an
inbuilt growing force which will tell you what feels right and so even
you might overhear this voice, but the moment will come that you are ready...
