Monstaville Book I. Chapter 3


"What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens."
- Thaddeus Golas.

Insights in meditation.

He’s trying to intimidate and break you, crush you, overwhelm you - because he enjoys it, and so he can bully you when he wants. So, he knows there’s no threat and, as a coward, he feels totally secure because he feels that he has total power.

But you have to show that it doesn’t work with you, that you don’t fall for his games, that you’re an intelligent, strong, powerful, bright spark (light) he can’t push or have power over you...Even though you seem weak and vulnerable, helpless, you’re not.

He throws his negativity at you but can only do it when he sees you and a connection is made. Minimise this connection by avoiding him. And work on sending positive Light to him - you can make use of your time. You have hours to do this, but he only has chance meetings, especially when he feels powerful and invincible when he’s been drinking.

“When you feel like throwing rocks, make sure they're ones no one can throw back.” – Rebecca McKinsey.

This is the transformation, perhaps, empowering your mind, directing divine power mentally - becoming a wizard like Gandalf! It’s a learning process. Not reacting means he can’t latch on to anything and pull you in. It gives you the space and freedom to work your magic. You are powerful but your powers are directed mentally. He can only express his anger and aggression verbally and physically when you both meet in person. You can shine your light whether there or not. And, like water, like the sea, which flows all around, continuously, you can wear down the hardness of the rock, even reducing it to a pebble. Because you do not depend merely on moments of action. You have other times when you are away from him to keep smoothing the edges of the rock with light and love until it is safer. Same as the people next door and anyone else who is hard and aggressive. Build up and express the power of Divine Light. If it is powerful it will have a powerful effect. Have faith.

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins - not through strength but by perseverance.” ‑ H. Jackson Brown.

You can’t keep running away. And you may attract revenge if you do anything visible and concrete - such as showing any aggression, intolerance, or have him moved out. This way, he has no reason to attack. The darkness attacks you and asks for a fight - if not physically, it is taunting you, trying to provoke a negative, not positive, response. Fight fire with water, not fire.

“I will never understand how people turn against one another like rabid dogs.” - Tina Barbey.

Even if you neither look disturbed nor act aggressively, that negative energy knows when the potential resides in you to act negatively even on a thought level, to take revenge by directing dark thought energy upon which darkness can feed and pull you in. Therefore, at any cost, you must rise above it and do the opposite. You must generate, channel and express Divine Light. Otherwise, you are vulnerable and on shaky ground and the darkness will see that and attack. It will work with your negative thoughts - which it knows, likes and can relate to.

“Hate is never conquered by hate. Hate is only conquered by love.” - Buddha.

The darkness relates to you as a dark entity, as an animal, and seeks a connection through anger, aggression and competitiveness, vis Devil’s Advocate! If it fails to find any of this muck in you it can’t relate to you and will turn away and leave you alone. It will not recognise you at all. Don’t give darkness that chance. Resist, rebel, rise above dense vibrations and reside in the Light, in pure Being.

Don’t feed the Beast with fear, anxiety, anger, intolerance, aggression - be it physically or mentally.

Feed it with Light, which it finds unbearable. So the dark withdraws, and lies in wait for a later opportunity if it ever emerges.

Melt the dark form; burn the wood; combat the darkness and be a warrior for the Light, a wizard like Gandalf.

Even if this is just for a while and you do move out: find that inner strength, and send the Light - Express - Experience - and identify with the Light - become one with it.

To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable.
Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
- G.K. Chesterton.

"Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today." - Thich Nhat Hanh.

“Hope overcomes the darkness.” - Sun Myung Moon.

“‘...looking back, I see the joy that came from suffering and the crown that shone beyond the pain.
                ‘I would not undo one sorrow, nor assuage the deepest agony of the soul, for though I gloried in all beauty and my heart was thrilled by melody and song, yet now I know that the truest music was the cry of my soul forsaken, and the brightest pearls the tears that fell from my sightless eyes.
                ‘Man does not easily believe these truths as he lives life after life in sorrow, seeking escape rather than acceptance, but the test remains and grows in severity as the soul develops.
                ‘So, my son, do not grieve that ye have suffered, but welcome the darkness even as the light, the sadness of solitude as the joys of full communion.
                ‘This is your life of testing when ye have been left to your own devices and shadow after shadow has fallen across your path. In your own strength, ye must stand, gathering the power of the immortal soul within ye, cut off from those who have led ye hitherto and braced ye by their love and example.
                ‘In this life ye have had no standard but that which ye have erected by yourself. Your sensitive soul has shrunk from the coarse contacts of earth, and though ye have worn armour for your protection, yet many a shaft has found a home.
                ‘I would have ye bare your breast to the storm and stand erect that the lightning may strike ye or the sun strike ye down. For in defeat ye shall find victory and the sword that pierces ye shall bring release.
                ‘Let go, let go all that which mortal man clings to and in your utter need, when all seems lost, ye shall find the conflict ended and hear the strong sons of God shouting for joy.’”
                - St. Francis (The Shining Brother. Recording the spirit return of St. Francis of Assisi and its sequel Francis Speaks Again by Laurence Temple, Psychic Press, London, U.K., 1941, p.281-282).

"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." - Aristotle Onassis.

Retrospective inserts.

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” – Wayne Dyer.

Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe): [to Spider-Man] You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire): I'm not like you. You're a murderer.
Green Goblin: Well... to each his own.
                - Spider-Man (directed by Sam Raimi, 2002).

“Bullies are cowards who hate themselves…learn to live with yourself…Grow up or the rest of your life is going to be sad and lonely.” – Audrey Kitching (from a MySpace bulletin posted on 3 July 2009).

“A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.” - Rita Mae Brown.

"When your happiness is dependent upon what is happening outside of you, constantly you live as a slave to the external situation." - Sadhguru.

“If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?” – Rumi.

Positive intent: sunrise, power. But there’s also sunset, wisdom to recognise the dark for what it is and extend one’s conscious awareness and balance it beautifully and gracefully. 

“The wise heart is the one that cares about the consequences of your choices. This aspect of self-love is extremely underutilised in most people, especially in Western cultures. It’s far more popular and seductive to posture and swagger, acceding to the demands of the ego, than to be forward-thinking and wise...What behaviours leave you feeling content with yourself?...The wise heart is that of your inner elder, your ancient one. It’s the aspect of your Spirit that knows that, as time passes, emotions calm, passions subside and clarity returns. The wise heart merges reason with emotion so that your response is both wholehearted and whole-brained. It engages all of your faculties – feeling and thought, passion and reason – and discerns a course of action that benefits everyone, not just you. A wise heart feels passionate but acts with prudence. It leads you to discernment and patience. The wise heart springs not only from your highest personal reason, but also from the wisdom of the ages – a gift from your ancestors, anchored in your DNA…The courageous heart is the aspect of your authentic Spirit that sticks to your convictions, stands true in the face of fear rather than running away or becoming unconscious and cherishes self-approval over the approval of others.” - Sonia Choquette (The Answer Is Simple…love yourself, live your spirit, Hay House, Inc., Carlsbad, CA., U.S., 2008, p.92 and 98).
Caine: (David Carradine): Master, How may I walk a peaceful path when the world is seldom peaceful?
Master Po: (Keye Luke): Peace lies not in the world, Grasshopper, but in the man who walks the path.
Caine: But in my path may be men not filled with peace.
Master Po: Then seek a different path.
Caine: And if, at each turn, appear those who would be violent, and do not love peace?
Master Po: To reach perfection, a man must develop equally compassion and wisdom.
Caine: But, Master, how do I not contend with a man that would contend with me?
Master Po: In a heart that is one with nature, though the body contends, there is no violence. And in the heart that in not one with nature, though the body be at rest, there is always violence. Be therefore, like the prow of a boat - it cleaves the water, yet it leaves in its wake, water unbroken.
                - Kung Fu (Season 1, Episode 8, ‘Sun and Cloud Shadow,’ 1973).

 “‘Remember,’ Merlin said, ‘love is not a mere feeling but a universal force, and as such it must contain truth.’ If you are able to go this deep, you will find that every emotion turns out to be love in disguise. Jealousy and hatred seem to be opposites of love, but they can also be seen as distorted ways to return to love. The jealous person is seeking love but has a distorted way of going about it; the hating person may desperately want love but hates out of despair at ever getting it. Once you stop seeing love as a mere emotion, it makes sense that a universal force is drawing everyone toward it - this is the wizard’s love. Thus we should honour every expression of love, however distorted. Though few people may be able to experience universal love at its fullest, all are walking the path toward it.” - Deepak Chopra (The Way of the Wizard. 20 Spiritual Lessons For Creating The Life You Want, Rider, London, U.K., 1995, p.107-108).

“A seeker went to ask a sage for guidance on the Sufi way. The sage counselled, ‘If you have never trodden the path of love, go away and fall in love; then come back and see us.’” - Sufi saying.

“Today’s topics were various and sundry. You learned of your galactic origin and how to communicate with your galactic brothers and sisters as well as your Higher Self, guides, etc. You’ve learned about star gates, aspects, your DNA and love. If I were to pick the one topic that will carry you the farthest, I would pick love.  Love will bring you all of what you desire in this journey. Only in love can you be in full awareness.  Love is in your DNA. It is the food upon which your soul thrives. Be in love." - Master Guide Kirael (‘More on the Journey to the Shift,' Closing Statement, channelled through Kahu Fred Sterling, I recommend the inspiring article by Susan Bog in Appendix III on this topic).

“The light was absent so people questioned the dark. They said, ‘Hey darkness, where is the light?’ The darkness said, ‘I wrote an answer to your question and I shall read it whenever there is enough light!’” – Saint (a poet and artist in Ohio).

“A serious mind can never be in the present. Only a playful mind, only children, are in the present. So be more more.” – Osho (Be Realistic: Plan for a Miracle, Chapter 2, 14 March 1976, Chuang Tzu Auditorium).
