In a world that is filled with so much discord and strife, the greatest gift you can give is to heal yourself — to develop a calm mind and a serene heart.

If you’ve worked on yourself, then you will understand how your reactions can cause unnecessary pain and anguish.

The mind tends to prattle along and groan. Psychologists call it the negativity bias. It’s the habit of reacting with disgruntlement and unduly focusing on negativity.

This tendency causes a great amount of unease because people often register every tiny setback or dislike as a serious violation of their desires and expectations.

To get beyond negativity bias, you have to endure the variance of life without affirming so much of it as being negative — without moaning that you don’t like it, without falling into indignation, or succumbing to self-pity.

So many of our reactions can be softened by letting go of the need to control, the need to be right, and the need to get what we want all the time. By simply lessening your reactions and loosening your grip, you protect yourself from despair, you become more serene.

Learn to stand guard of your thoughts. Step back from your mind sometimes and ask yourself, “What good is this thinking doing?” Often, the best medicine to apply is mind-emptiness — and this stops your mental rambling from generating emotions.

For example, if your thoughts are protesting about someone, whining about your life, or if you’re putting yourself down — say softly in your mind, “Hey, chill, no further comments.” The more you extinguish the flames of disquiet, the more peaceful your mind becomes.

Everyone gets ripped off, betrayed, abused or manipulated in this world. But if you carry around the weight of bitterness, then you end up languishing in victimhood. And if you overly identify with your agony, you bind yourself to misery.

You have to live by letting go in this world, otherwise you get stuck, and your abilities to make beneficial changes get hindered. Emotions inform you about how things are affecting you on an inner level. But they are not meant to be permanent. If you feel stuck in emotion, the way forward is to face your difficulties with an intention to transform them and to create beneficial change.

When it comes to emotional turmoil — the way out is through. You can’t simply suppress your emotions and expect them to be done with. By facing your emotions, you can understand them and work through them. Healing emotional pain comes down to letting go of your negative sentiments so that you feel at peace.

The more you process your emotional pain, the more you will align to your natural happiness. And where you are looking to arrive at, is a temperament that can endure the turbulence of life without getting agitated or distraught. All you have to do is develop emotional discipline to the extent where your reactions do not pull you out of composure or into darkness.

As part of healing yourself, you also have to make sure you are not acting in dark ways. If you have thoughts such as, “This person doesn’t deserve my respect.” Then you are justifying your darkness, and this is a dark path to tread. It is wise to redeem yourself as appropriate.

For example, if you notice you’re being mean — open up and be generous. Notice you’re being unfair? Level up and be honourable. Notice you’re being disrespectful? Lighten up and be kind. Notice you’re being contrary? Loosen up and be flexible and tolerant.

There is a universal truth to what Jesus said: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” And when you make the decision to cultivate and nurture goodness, you find yourself on the path of liberation.

Challenges in life are inevitable. And you might have some set-backs and you might fall into some darkness at times. But that’s okay — just remember the way of liberation. Dust yourself off, and get back on the path, walk the walk.

Healing emotion and darkness is always about accepting and letting go. It’s always about turning disharmony into harmony, conflict into peace, discord into serenity. It’s always about nurturing genuine warmth and compassion within your heart. It’s always a process of transmutation and transfiguration — an inner alchemy of transforming darkness to light. It’s always about liberation.

Transcending the Darkness

To transcend the darkness in this world, you can’t be languishing in states of resentment, indignation and contempt about the darkness in this world.

The corruption, the evil, the malevolence on this planet — it really is tragic. But if you carry around the weight of hostility, it degrades your energy — it restricts your capacity to bring light into this world.

You simply can’t expect a system infiltrated by demonic evil to be nice. You can’t expect truth or justice from a system sustained by lies and corruption.

An unethical and fraudulent genetic experiment has killed tens of thousands and injured millions of people around the world — and this is even tacitly admitted, yet the injections are still being given. That should tell you everything you need to know about the current trajectory of the matrix.

I totally understand if all this pisses you off. But the thing is, that half the trick is to trap people in a loop of hostility and fear. And so much of the malice that unfolds is purposefully manufactured for that intent.

And people very quickly divide themselves into opposing camps. We live in a world where so many people hate each other for reasons they can’t even explain. Extremes of irrational emotions are abound, with people entrenched in Pro vs Anti tussles. Divide and rule. The levels of brainwashing and manipulation are unprecedented.

People are being targeted in ways to shut down their intuitive feelings and their capacity for empathy and love. What’s happening is spiritual warfare more than anything else because dark emotions and prejudices make people vulnerable to being influenced by dark entities and dark forces.

We’re living during an era of immense inner turmoil, and this is being reflected into outer reality.

I do believe that great changes for good are coming…. eventually. More and more people are walking away from the matrix. It is a matter of time. And for sure, there are things we can do, such as sharing information, making conscious choices, and not complying with unethical mandates. I’ve spoke about that in previous articles.

My main point here, is to keep your heart free from darkness.

It’s not about sticking your head in the sand and being indifferent. It’s about living in ways that bring goodness into the world, and protect you from evil.

If you are wallowing in dark emotions, you risk perpetuating the darkness in this world. If you rage about injustice, but act in ways that are unjust, you risk becoming the darkness that you despise.

When you can be serene even in the midst of sorrow, evil cannot enter your heart. This is the path of liberation. Do you see? What power could evil have over you without a foothold in your heart? None.

Justice is the quality of being just and fair — it is a natural outcropping of goodness, honour and common sense. In a world of goodness, honour and common sense — justice would not need to be enforced. This is the world that awaits — it is the world that will naturally unfold when goodness, honour and common sense prevails.

    Healing and Liberation

    What follows are some further tips:

      Liberation From Hostility

      • Let go of grievances about differing opinions. Life is too short. Respect people’s freedom to express themselves and to have their own beliefs, even if you don’t agree. Offer your views if you believe they are valuable, but don’t try and beat people into submission and capitulation.
      • Yearning to control people can lead you into darkness. Try to observe people and situations without reacting with rancour. Blunt your sharpness and soften your glare, as it says in the Tao. Recognise the wisdom you glean from observing others. And then use this wisdom to help patch up your own shortcomings, if appropriate.
      • People are growing through the difficulties they find themselves in — the same as you. And it’s usually best to allow them to evolve in their own way — to encourage them to make their own decisions — to trust in their natural abilities. Work on yourself, and then you can be strong for others if they do ask for your support.
      • This world is rife with cruelty and injustice. It is natural to feel some friction within your conscience. And it is natural to desire justice to prevent atrocities from reoccurring. But if you allow yourself to be sucked into the abyss of hatred, you are falling into darkness.
      • The evil in this world wants to corrupt your goodness — it wants to pull you into dark emotions and reactions so that you end up rotting your soul. Revenge, retaliation and reprisal lead you towards darkness. And if you seek violent retribution or hold violent thoughts and intentions, you are aligning yourself with a violent world — and it will find you, in one way or another.
      • To stand firm in the light of integrity, you have to remain pure of heart. To truly act from goodness, you have to let go of hostility. If you stand for truth and for freedom, you’ll be stronger and more protected with a calm mind and a settled heart. There is good reason why most of the world’s martial art practises focus on attaining inner peace and following a code of honour.
      • Remember that other people are not in control of your emotions. You are the source of your emotions and therefore your emotional state is your responsibility. Blaming others for your emotions won’t resolve anything.
      • If you want to be an instrument for beneficial change, you need to let go of any prejudices you may have. Offer kindness and respect to all those you meet. And don’t assume you know what’s best for people.
      • Send love to those who persecute and torment you. Forgive them, if you can. This allows you to disentangle from their influence and it frees you from their dominance.

      Liberation From Discontentment

      • If you’re always striving for your desires, you’ll be prone to discontentment — and this can hinder your progress. Take the pressure off at times. By resting in the stillness and peace of contentment, you can recharge.
      • Appreciate what is going well in your life, and recognise the wisdom you’re gaining from your experiences. Focus your attention mostly on the here and now. This helps you to feel more composed.
      • Learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself, make changes, evolve. Just don’t languish in self-depreciation. Inner peace comes through silent humility.
      • If you complain about your life, you end up affirming pain, you make it more concrete. By not dwelling on your misfortunes for long, you assuage yourself of discontentment.
      • You will drive yourself nuts if you expect everyone to act as you would like them to. Ain’t gonna happen. Lower your expectations. Focus your energy on being the best version of yourself.
      • Acknowledge the injustices in this world. But accept when you are powerless to solve them. This helps you to let go of the discontentment that can arise from feeling like it’s your responsibility. Focus your energy on making good on your commitments and your relationships.
      • Agony is usually optional because you can control your actions. For example, if your boss is always being a control freak megalomaniac, then quit and walk out. If your partner is always being nasty, get your stuff and leave. Sometimes you’ve just got to move on to follow the path of liberation.
      • Take pleasure from what material possessions you have, but don’t cling on too tight, be willing to let things go. When you feel satisfied, you can appreciate your bounty. When you feel unsatisfied, you will never have enough.
      • Know when to slow down and wait. Don’t allow hastiness to wreck your relationships or your health. Forcing things usually backfires. Adapting to what flows is often the best way to go.

      Liberation From Fear

      • Keep a bit of a track of what’s happening in the world because knowledge can keep you safe and help you to make wise decisions. But don’t get pulled into the collective dramas and trends that play out in the mainstream media — most of which are manipulated theatrics designed to steer you into fear and despair.

      • Never trust a word any government says and do not rely on them to solve your issues. Always do your own research. Be as independent and self-sufficient as possible. And be willing to stand your ground in non-compliance if government agendas contradict your ethics.

      • Break free from conformity. Develop a strong sense of self and act in ways that are genuinely aligned with your inner values. This helps you to feel more confident and self-assured.
      • Connect with people you feel a resonance with. Do things you enjoy and find uplifting together. Don’t spend too much time in isolation.

      • Be proactive in resolving any worries you may have. Then let go of anything that is out of your control. If you don’t know what to do, write down some options, and then stop thinking about it — allow time for your intuition to percolate through the silence.
      • Make peace with uncertainty. You simply cannot control the outcome of everything in life, so you have to accept some uncertainty. Embrace change, and trust that you’ll be able to cope with what comes, in one way or another.
      • Taking good care of yourself alleviates fear. Hydration, nutrition, exercise, relaxation, time in nature, time with people and animals you feel a loving connection with. Being organised also helps you to overcome fear.
      • If you’re dealing with anxiety, check my earlier article about overcoming anxiety. If you’re dealing with recurring symptoms of trauma, you can help yourself by defusing your triggers with relaxation techniques. Over time, your nervous system will fully realise that you are safe, and the hypervigilance will be released.
      • Our deepest fears are usually tied to painful memories. We tend to fear distressing experiences happening again. If you uncover any deep fears, then reflect on what you have learned and what you will do differently to avoid the pain you went through reoccurring. Reassure yourself and recognise how you have become more resilient. Tell yourself that you are stronger and wiser — and that you can now let go of the fear.
      • You get beyond the fear of failure and ridicule by believing in yourself and by not concerning yourself with what other people think. Remember that challenges are the greatest opportunities to grow.
      • Send love to anything you are afraid of and anything that troubles you. Dodgy food, cell towers, shedding, chemtrails — send love and bless all that concerns you. This helps you to feel safer and to transcend the vulnerability of fear. You are powerful, never doubt that.
      • Meditation alleviates fear and helps you to navigate decisions with your inner guidance. It helps you to trust in your inspiration and creativity. It helps you to stay safe and aligned to the path of liberation. Pray for wisdom.
