My Beloved Readers, this is a most interesting chapter that I think everyone can benefit from for there is not a single person on earth who does not have to deal with this lesson. The reason for this is that we live in a world that is almost completely run by the negative ego. Religious leaders, with no judgment, do not know what the negative ego is. Traditional psychology has absolutely no understanding of what the negative ego mind is. Even Spiritual leaders and teachers in the New Age Movement, largely, are not fully trained in understanding the difference between negative ego/ fear-based/ separative thinking and feeling and Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha thinking and feeling, It is the biggest blind spot in the entire New Age Movement, in my humble opinion. Most people in this world operate more out of a personality level psychology and not a Soul or Spiritual level psychology. Most people are not “Integrated Spiritual Masters.” To be a fully Integrated Spiritual Master on Earth means they have mastered the Spiritual, psychological, and physical/Earthly levels and are balancing them.
Given this understanding, it is no wonder that people are a little rough around the edges. Most people do not cause their reality and most people are not masters of their mind and emotions, negative ego, inner child, lower-self desires, and subconscious mind at all times. Most people do not own their 100% personal power and are not unconditionally loving at all times. Most people have not learned how to master and integrate the Seven Rays, which is the basic Personality of God.
This being the case, most people live more out of their emotional bodies and interpret life from their personalities and negative ego minds a great deal of the time, which causes them to have a lot of negative feelings and emotions. This also causes them to react instead of responding in life. Most people do not keep their bubble of protection up so they are constantly letting other people cause their emotions. Most people do not choose their feelings and emotions at all times. Even the most advanced Spiritual Masters and leaders in the world are not free from attack and criticism. As a matter of fact, it is just the opposite, they get more than most for they are on the front lines. All the negative ego-run people in the world and all the people who are run by dark forces attack the Spiritual leaders out of their own low self-esteem and inferiority. The only way they know how to feel good about themselves is to attack and judge others. So they go from the underdog to the top dog, or from inferiority to superiority, but of course, this does not last long for as the Bible says, “After pride cometh the fall.“ The only way one can achieve inner peace is by transcending the negative ego, not staying caught in the two sides of it!
This, of course, occurs in the world. The media in the world is totally run by the negative ego and are like attack dogs looking for a story. They will do anything to get a story, including destroying people’s lives, invading people’s personal privacy, exploring the personal sexual aspects of people’s lives, and basically throwing morals and ethics out the door. The media is such a competitive business that they will do just about anything to get a story. Their favorite game is “gotcha!“ This is to attack people and publicly embarrass them. Their other favorite game is to destroy the guy at the top. If they smell blood at all, they can be absolutely vicious. They will do anything for ratings! This is because they operate completely out of the personality and negative ego mind and do no operate out of the Soul. Television shows, movies, and our entire society is based on personality level models so it is not surprising there is so much judgment, attack, and criticism that one has to deal with in life! This is not personal karma for the most part; it is just the nature of living in this world. This planet is making some Spiritual progress now, but is still very backward psychologically! I share all of this only to say that there is no one in life who does not have to deal with this lesson and the more one steps into Spiritual leadership and Spiritual mastery the more one has to deal with it. It is the nature of dealing with people and dealing with students. So, the purpose of this chapter is to teach you how to become invulnerable to attack and criticism in your daily life. On this note, I will begin.
The key principles to becoming invulnerable to attack and criticism from others is as follows:
First, you must own your 100% personal power at all times and maintain self-mastery over your thoughts and emotions at all times. For, in truth, the only thing that can hurt you is your own thinking. It is your own thinking that determines if you can be hurt or not. You are the cause of your own reality! You are the cause of your own thoughts and emotions! The only thing that can hurt you is your own victim consciousness and/ or negative ego/fear-based/separative thinking.
Second, you must keep your Golden Bubble of protection up at all times so other people’s negative energy slides off your bubble like water off a duck’s back.
Third, you must achieve 100% self-love and self-worth within self and allow yourself to receive it from God so you do not seek it from outside of self. This is very important. You must also learn to parent your own inner child with firmness and unconditional love.
You must look at all attacks and judgments from others as Spiritual tests and lessons and not as anything negative. Just an opportunity to practice holding and maintaining your Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha Consciousness. All attacks from others must be seen as a call for love. An opportunity to love your enemies, as Jesus would say. Sometimes an opportunity to turn the other cheek. An opportunity to practice defenselessness and harmlessness.
You must all choose your response to others and never react. This means always choose your emotions and recognize that you are creating them by how you think. In this regard, you must not allow yourself to operate on automatic pilot, you must be Spiritually vigilant for God and His Kingdom!
You must also give up all your attachments and only have preferences, so if your preferences aren’t met you are still happy.
The next key is that you must be 100% clear and in integrity in everything you choose to do at all times. If anyone ever should, in the future, question something you said or did, you are 100% clear that you made a 100% conscious decision to speak or act as you did. This way you will never second-guess yourself.
The next key is to understand that there is an enormous number of people who are run by the negative ego in this world and as you become successful, because of their ego sensitivity and victim consciousness, they feel insecure and they will attack and judge you. There is a certain small segment of the population who will do this even if they were talking to Jesus or Buddha. Look what Jesus went through in his incarnation on Earth! There is a certain segment of the population that judge and attack regardless of how much a person is in Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha Consciousness. They do this because they are so run by the negative ego that judging and attacking others is the only way they know how to feel good about themselves, which of course does not last very long. This is important to understand so that you know judgment and attack is most often not personal to you, but rather that jealousy, competitiveness, lack of self-worth, and self-love on their part is just being projected on to you!
The next lesson is to realize that very often the best response is no response to such attacks and criticism. Since you are not allowing their attacks to affect you or enter your subconscious mind or hypnotize you, so to speak, because you have a strong Spiritual and psychological immune system, positive mental attitude, perspective, and understanding that deflects it from affecting you, there is no reason to respond very often. It takes two to have a fight and if one does not choose to engage then it cannot happen. The lesson is, if you ever do respond, do so in a non-reactive manner, which is calm, rational, objective, and unconditionally loving. Have compassion for the fear and pain that that person must live in to have to react with attack and judgment to try and find inner peace.
See beyond the attack and judgment to see if there is anything to learn from what is being said without responding to the negativity of the attack and judgment that is sent your way! Be willing to admit mistakes if you made any, without losing personal power, self-love or self-worth, or losing your inner peace, knowing that mistakes are positive and not negative. Since you are not being victimized by what is being said and not reacting to it, even thank the person, if appropriate, which will totally confuse the negative ego who is prepared for war and battle. Give them only unconditional love and kindness in return, if it is appropriate to respond at all!
The last thing I would say is if this ever occurs and you feel your invulnerability faltering at all, this is very easy to stabilize. The first way is to review the points in this chapter to make sure you are doing them all. Second, make a list in your mind or on a piece of paper privately telling yourself why what is being said is not true and is a projection of the person who is attacking and judging. Once in a while, if we have a lot going on, a little self-doubt might creep in. If you do as I suggest here, this will reinforce your Spiritual and psychological invulnerability. If you are totally mentally strong, clear, unconditionally loving, and in integrity in everything you think, say and do, then nothing anyone can say can affect you because you know in your self and in your relationship to God and the Masters that you have been 100% clear and in integrity in everything you have thought, said and done within the overall context of the Spiritual ideals, morals, and ethics you live by every moment of your life.
So, my Beloved Readers, if you practice these step-by-step Spiritual and psychological principles this will give you the humble Spiritual and psychological invulnerability which can also be called Master or Causal Consciousness, which makes you unable to be victimized by the attacks, judgments, and criticisms of others. It is my sincere hope and prayer that you have found this Spiritual and psychological formula given forth by Spirit, the Ascended Masters, and myself a helpful understanding so you can stand and live your life as the “Integrated Spiritual Master” it is your destiny to be!
So let it be written. So let it be done.
