The Secret of Psychic and Physical Knowing and Pleasure
The Secret? People Are Looking For Themselves! This is the Unveiling of the Reality that is the Unstoppable, Ongoing Occurance. Surrender to it and all will be given unto you. Resistance is Futile, and the Fruits of Resistance but temporary. If you Know this, you know Everything. Read on, but apply your Power of Comprehension to this.

The Secret? People Are Looking For Themselves. Why? Because, People Want to Feel Alive! Mentally Powerful and Physically Loved Without Fear. And without Finding ourselves we cannot do that. So what keeps us from finding and living in our true selves? Why, fear, of course, but what, exactly, are we afraid of?

The Chamber of the Gods of Wrath.
"If you run, they win." (Buffy)
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." From A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles by Marianne Williamson.
The Process to the Attainment of this Goal is this: Understanding the Nature of and Healing the Abusive Personality. If we can successfully transform the Abusive Personality in ourselves, we will see the way to transforming it in others, and believe me, that is the way to the fulfillment of all of your heart's desires.
The Abusive Personality comes from Impatience. Impatience is a manifestation of dissatisfaction.

Transformation Through Understanding
Panic is Just an Act in the Play
Why? Because Self is the Source of our Psychic Knowing and Physical Pleasure. TrueSelf, or our Soul, is also the eventual and inevitable winner, and will have its way. Ask, for example, where does the pleasure of egotism come from? Is it not a form of self satisfaction, but noticeably artificial, temporary and self constructed? The need for its temporary creation is the manifestation of a sense of its absence in a permanent form.
So it's a brief imitation, a deliberately contrived circumstance for the purpose of delivering the experience of the real thing, which is there all the time in our unconscious. The feeling is the same, it feels good and you feel good about yourself, but the means to attainment is often harmful or hurtful to others, and certainly constructed rather than genuine. Plus, the ego cannot answer questions, except from within its own limited framework. But it poses the questions, indeed is aways asking the question and asking always, "where is the help from God?" And because of its innate desperation, as long as it is there asking thee questions, no real answers can be recieved. It is in that way that it is its own worst enemy.
Understanding the "New Bottom Line(1)", we realize that all events and deeds are a manifestation of the need to manifest, a part of a process of self-realization. Why do we 'need' to manifest? Because manifestation is a representation of our self.
Soul is intelligence. Intelligence is the constructive use of awareness. Yet Soul is innately self aware, perceptive. Intelligence uses awareness to create its story, or ego, a self satisfying or self pleasing personality, one that matches up to its own perceived needs. Ego serves the purpose of soul but then takes over the intelligence because of its belief that the environment supports only collective ego deception. For this reason Honesty is considered Radical.
That which we so glibly call intuition is in reality the glimpses of real knowledge peeking through the veils of our made up minds.
When you find your soul, and you will, you will "know" the truth of this statement, and you will consequently know how to help all people find what they are looking for. Your work will improve along with your personal satisfaction. Everyone will feel and notice. There will be spontaneous awakenings around you which you will notice and be able to recognize and confirm. You will easily see through all arguments to the contrary.
Soul Connection Is the Source of All Happiness and Blissful Spiritual Satisfaction.
It is the Source of the Healing Energy. Staying in it long enough with decreased interruptions will restore health and harmony to the physical functionality of the body. This is the principle of Samadhi Yoga. The satisfaction from completing this Inner Quest is the source of satisfaction with everything. This inner peace, satisfaction and knowing is very attractive because on the soul level, the souls will know and feel that you have found what their body wants, which is connection with them, the souls.
The only thing keeping you from realizing this is the "perturbations" of the mind. The purpose of therapy is to help you clear up these perturbations of mind. These perturbations are commonly referred to as "Issues".
Therapy will only be of lasting benefit if the goal of self realization is explicit! That requires it to be clearly recognized and manifest in the therapist him/herself. Any therapist who denies or does not recognize the fact and reality of self realization as the goal and means of therapy has not completed his or her spiritual education and needs to investigate any and all resistance.
Self realization may seem difficult in cases manifesting extreme unwillingness. For this I have written "Understanding our Impedances to our Willingness to Experience Reality", explaining why "wanting to" is not always enough. However, In all cases it is exactly the process of life that each person is undergoing and needs only to be recognized as such. Such recognition is valuable because it does not impose any major changes of lifestyle, simply a shift in focus of attention. This explains the phenomenon of spontaneous awakening. The reality is never far and always knocking at the door. The work is involved with the discovery, establishment, strengthening and confirming of what is really happening while all the illusions are passing before one's eyes. This is why we call it Reality Therapy. Reality Heals, and the proximity of our consciousness to it is proportional to our time spent consciously in it which s inversely proportionate to our time spent out of illusion. Hence the value of clarifying illusion.
What Is Soul? Soul is God.
Let me clarify that. Soul is your personal portion of the Essence of God, who is beyond creation but manifests in humble you. Essence is the first of the tangible manifestations of God, Who is Supreme above and not at all in need of, His creation. Essence is referred to as Ether in some spiritual teachings, but whatever, it is the subtlest of the tangible substances knowable to man. It is the original and basic substance of creation. As it becomes more dense and manipulable it takes on the form of energy. Essence is the power behind, the source and substance of, and that in which, the phenomenon of energy occurs.
Soul is the Essence of Self.
Soul is Tangible.
Soul is actively Healing, Loving, Protective, Guiding and Educating.
Soul is the Recipient of our Deeds.
Soul is our Merciful Judge and the Standard by which our personal judgment is Judged.
That's why we are self forgiving. Soul is the source of our self forgiveness.
How do we Know Soul? With Practice, but Soul knows us. If we search for it we will find it but when we find it our search for it will be over but the work of dealing with our impedances will begin.
What is Ego?
Ego is a survival tactic. It is a collection of all the protective tools that the body/soul needs to survive its arrival into this difficult plane of existence.
Once you have realized truth there is no longer any need for heaven or earth or your life in it. You've accomplished your purpose and you automatically become a Bodhisattva which means a Body of Knowing, which you always were but didn't realize it and that's the purpose of the earth and the life on it. You reside in it as long as decreed with no further attachment to it at all.
That's Reality! Even you Perception of it is Illusion.
Our unconscious drive is to get it all, and only the pleasure of self realization can stop that. Because the self realized person knows already that he/she has it all and can be patient in the pleasure of self realization.
The very insecurity of this life drives us to seek our abidance in the life hereafter, which can be known and is manifest in this life.
Ego is the manifestation by which we seek security in this life. It is not bad per se, because it does not, in reality, exist, it's eventually only a passing illusion.
Our True Abode is in Allah, and the journey of our awareness is described in Sufi lore as lillaah, billah and fillah, to God, by God, in God.
Once this is realized, the work in earnest, that of the Bodhsattva, begins. And that is the bringing of the same pleasure in God to all sentient beings.
