Monstaville Book I. Chapter 27


“The metaphor of the Light-worker is ‘one goes like this who sends light’ and the metaphor that ‘lighthouses are never built in safe places.’”
- Kryon (channelled through Lee Carroll). [1]

Banish self-importance.

If you are important you must prove it by assuming a role of unimportance. And still be content.

Thus, you must play various roles of unimportance before you can be recognised as being anything important.

This is spiritual. Your life is so.

"Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and I. If you want to know what a man believes, look for it in the way he lives his life" - Thomas Jefferson.

And, yet, it is also through the intensity of expectation that we can create miracles. It is the attachment that causes disappointment. We must use the power of intention and expectancy but let go of the results at the same time. I guess we have to feel in the first instance as the foundation but then rise above that level to bear fruit and use a more balanced perspective to observe the seasons and relate to the cosmos as a mature partner...not as a child hollering for attention and satisfaction but as the guardian of that child. A spiritual adult who realises that much is hidden from our view but who has sufficient awareness and recognition of universal truth to work with the cosmos, or Mother-Father God, tempting as it is to put one’s own needs first and scream when one does not get one’s own way!
“Human beings are meant to be calm and it is calmness in the mist of chaos that one particularly learns in a karmic environment on Earth.” - Hua-Ching Ni (Workbook for Spiritual Development of All People, SevenStar Communication Group, CA., U.S., 1983).

“The best Sadhana is to behave as you do when you get a parcel of books by post. To get at the books you unwrap the parcel and throw off the packing material. Now, take the prayer that is the deepest and the most significant - 'I want Peace'. Unwrap it of the 'I' and of the 'want' and get hold of Peace. When you are burdened with egoism and desire, how can you attain Peace? So, throw away the outer covering and hold on to the precious essence that remains.” - Sathya Sai Baba.

Calmness is attained through experience leading to wisdom, through love and understanding.

Calmness is also attained through regulating the breath, especially in conjunction with the cultivation of one’s energies, that is, no outflows physically or psychically, no dissipation through lust or emotions. Contain your energies with a disciplined mind and fan them with the bellow of regular breathing. That way, the stored energies are refined, and carry one to the spiritual plane where all energies can be united, the lower being sublimated and transformed by the higher energies (potentially).

“Without a foe a soldier never knows his strength, and thought must be developed by the exercise of strength. And so this carnal nature soon became a foe that man must fight, that he might be the strength of God made manifest.” - Levi (The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ, Introduction, p.18).

“Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind. Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger? Know that you yourself are essential to this World.” - Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nation, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe.


“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.”- don Juan (Tales of Power by Carlos Castaneda, Pocket Books, New York, 1974).

When a man is challenged by another man, or even a group, it is an opportunity for him to shine, to express his light and outshine others, to prove his power, maturity and wisdom. He is not defeated as intended, but shown to be dignified and above all assaults on his character. It is an initiation by fire, a test of will and integrity.

"To discover the heart is the greatest initiation." - Hazrat Inayat Khan.

The challenges are launched because people sense the man’s transcendental power and wish to prove that he is a mere mortal, an animal, like them. They attack with negative abuse and desire the same in return. That is their domain, where they are sure to win. They desire to pull him down. They assume they will succeed, if not now, eventually. They live with themselves on that confidence. They are not proven wrong until much, much time has passed, and the proof manifests in subtle ways. In the end, if the man has survived with his character unblemished, intact, and has not debased himself by stooping to his attacker’s level of bestial negativity, then, and only then, has he won. His patience and wisdom must prevail to the end. He must sustain his centeredness and calmness.

Hence, if a man patiently and humbly endures a wife’s badgering and belittling (or worse), he is well-trained and prepared to prove himself in the arena of life. Enduring challenges from others is felt as nothing. He is ready for them and indifferent to them, calm, detached and well-disciplined. Yet, he was strengthened by a woman, in training combined with pleasure, buffeted with sweet love and surrender. Socrates would agree with this, at least. Powerful, yet finding wisdom and wholeness through letting go of one’s ego, especially through females, be they sweet and enlightening or bitter and controlling.

“Now, it is true that it may be more comfortable, at least temporarily, for mankind to vegetate neath the sun and the moon in an isolated reverie, remote from the challenges of life, without benefit of the sometimes violent but always disturbing alchemical head which, as Christic fires, acts to purge mankind of his dross. But I am certain that the soul which desires to climb the hill of attainment to reach the summit peaks will neither find fault with nor reject the necessary chain of experiences that are intended to broaden the mind, sharpen the intellect, exalt the sprit, and test the mettle of a man.” - St. Germain (recorded by Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Saint Germain on Alchemy. Formulas for Self-transformation, Summit Publications, Inc., MT., U.S., 1985 and 1993, p.76-77).

The Divine Melody by Osho (Chapter 1, ‘God is dwelling everywhere,’ 1 January 1977, Buddha Hall, Rajneesh Foundation, Pune, India, 1978).

You have been taught: ‘Never love yourself.’ You have been taught: ‘Never be kind to yourself.' You have been taught to never forgive yourself. You have been taught much self-torture: you are praised in the same proportion as you torture yourself. If you want to become a Mahatma you have to be a masochist - there is no other way. If you are happy, joyous, delighted in your being, nobody is going to worship you. Who worships a happy man? Have you seen any happy man being worshipped? People worship sad, long-faced, dead, dull, stupid people who can torture themselves. Their only art is that they can torture themselves; they are cruel to themselves, they are violent.
                Kabir says: Be kind, and let kindness flow through you. Love yourself, and only then can you love others too. In deep love, in deep sensitivity, God is pleased. The whole point is that you have to become a spiritual hedonist. That's my whole teaching too: become a spiritual hedonist. There are spiritual people but they are not hedonists, and there are hedonists who are not spiritual. The West is hedonist but not spiritual; materialist. The East is spiritual but not hedonist - and both have missed. A higher synthesis is needed: hedonism and spiritualism. When they meet, the total man is born. And that total man is the enlightened man, that total man is the holy man.

The dance of anger.

“Pain is not the only response ascended out of by ascending humans. Anger is also a part of the vibrations that surround any human field. Anger is often a more difficult emotion for ascending initiates to deal with, as there are so many taboos in your civilisation against expression of anger. And yet the anger must be felt in order to be released beloved. Go into the anger, release it like a volcano rising and exploding out of the top of one's head! One will not only feel better, but also perhaps express what they have required expressing for many ancestors lifetimes.
                Many feel great anger as a result of the experience in New York. Yet others from other regions may feel great anger about other like incidents that they have lived near. Anger is a natural response to any violation, and indeed any travesty is a violation on a grand scale. If one is nearby such an incident, or has been touched by the loss of others therein, the rage may be exponential. HOW DARE THEY? One may feel this way. This is not wrong beloved, as it is a natural response to any violation. Go into the violation and allow it to be healed and erased.
                How many of your ancestors were violated in a parallel manner? How many of your ancestors were verbally or physically raped, executed, terrorised, traumatised, dissected, tortured, falsely imprisoned, and so on? Allow all ancestors that never had permission to express their rage to do so now! And you will not only process the rage, but feel better at the same time.
                Anger is most confusing due to the enmeshment of the human species. When one feels the rage of another, one feels like killing another or violating another. When one feels their own rage, one speaks their truth and takes a stand! See the difference? One may utilise grounding to the Earth mother to move out those energies that are of another, and then so choose to process the anger or pain that is only one's own.”

 The Pirate's Wife by Staje

[Vyvyan prepares to slice Neil in half, when a small section of the door is chopped off by an axe as Jerzei sticks as much of his face in the crack as possible]

Jerzei (Alexei Sayle): Heerrree's Jerzei!
Rick (Rik Mayall): It's Mr. Balowski!
Vyvyan (Ade Edmondson): How did he get in here?
Neil (Nigel Planer): Well, you could eat him instead, actually.
Jerzei: Little pigs! Little pigs! Let me in! Boys and girls come out to play on the busy motorway! Let me in! Jerzei wants to play 'Hospital'!
Rick: Oh, my God! He's turned into a homicidal axe-wielding maniac!
[Mike covers himself with a sheet]
Neil: Oh, well! Out of a frying pan, into another frying pan...
[Jerzei is bellowing out psychotic sounds]
Rick: Shut up, Neil! Shut up! [Neil continues to babble. Jerzei starts screaming] Shut up! Shut up! BLOODY SHUSH! SHUSH! [Runs to the door where Jerzei is trying to cut his way in] There's nobody in here, Mr. Balowski! We're all holograms! What are we going to do, Mike? [Looks for Mike, who is invisible, thanks to the sheet]
[Cut to outside the bedroom. Jerzei is chopping at the door. A chair is here with a backdrop reading, 'HALF TIME REPORT.' Jerzei stops cutting and sits down in an armchair. He speaks in a different voice]
Jerzei: Well, we're halfway through the show, and it's time for a half time report. I think the show has been going particularly well. Um, I particularly like how the young lad, Rick, has been going off the joke into the dead laugh area... [Quick shot of the boys watching this on a television set. Mike is still covered by the sheet] Going into the international sphere, they're going to have to face some stiff competition especially from the Swedes with their comedy series, Ooh, Where's My Volvo? And, also, of course, from the French with their comedy series, Mr. Poo Poo Goes to the Lavatory.
Voice: ...we're going on!
Jerzei: Oh, sorry, Paul. Anyway, the half times over now and it's back to the action. [Screams and chops off another section of the door. He is back using his normal voice] Let me in, boys! Jerzei wants to finger your entrails!
Rick: I know, let's put Neil's speaker in front of the door!
Speaker: I don't want to go in front of the door!
[Neil shields his speaker from the others]
Neil: Oh, not that speaker! Jimi Hendrix once pissed on that!
Rick: Then let's put Neil in front of the door! [They force Neil to the door. Jerzei grabs him by the throat. Vyvyan takes the hedge trimmer and cuts a section of the wall out] Yes! Yes! Bite his fingers, Neil!
Neil: You know I can't do that! I'm a vegetarian!
Rick: Well, keep him occupied while we escape.
[Rick, Mike, and Vyvyan rush out of the hole. Neil grabs Jerzei's hand and blows his nose on it]
Jerzei: UGH! You nasty boy…
[Neil runs out through the hole. Jerzei chases them up the stairs. Cut to the outside of Mike's bedroom. Jerzei runs in as Vyvyan slams the door. Sounds of lions eating Jerzei]
[Cut to the staircase. The boys are descending]
Vyvyan: It's a good job Bobby was here with his man-eating lions.
Rick: Yes, I'd like to shake his hand.
Mike (Christopher Ryan): Here. [Gives Rick a severed hand]
Rick: Oh, thanks! [He shakes it and throws it away]
