Monstaville Book I. Chapter 38
"Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not easy."
Sathya Sai Baba has said that it is impossible to go all the way through one’s life without ever feeling angry. Meher Baba (The Beloved, p.127) says: “If you never feel angry, you will be like stone, in which form the mind is least developed. Similarly, if you never have lusty thoughts, you cannot achieve the merit of having avoided lusty actions. Let the thoughts of anger, lust and greed come and go freely and unmasked without putting them into words and deeds. Then the related impressions in your mind begin to wear out and become less and less harmful. But when you put such thoughts into action you develop new impressions worse than those which are spent in the act. These new impressions root even more firmly in your mind. The fire of divine love alone can destroy all impressions once and for all.”

(Saw Osho [in my mind’s eye] whilst going to sleep, which tends to happen at Christmas time for some reason).
Pigsy is a bad smell. You can try to always avoid the smell and putting your foot in it! Or you can be a beautiful smell, emanate a radiant light that transforms the shit, overwhelms it with a fragrance. Wash it away with pure energy. If the good smell is strong and powerful it doesn’t even notice the bad smell of the shit. It is always unceasingly kind, loving, happy, confident and at peace with itself and the world.
Pigsy is an illusion.
Buddha: No winning or losing, just find joy.
Pigsy is playing psychological games. He felt threatened by me and wanted o make sure I’d never confront or challenge him. He had problems with the tenants who lived in the same property as him prior to moving here. He’s trouble.
Whatever happens in life, you must remain unaffected.
“For the man who has conquered his mind, it is his greatest friend, but for the man who fails to do so, his mind will be his greatest enemy.” - Sri Krishna.
Your emotions must not be stirred. Your mind must be strong and clear, unperturbed, disengaged and not feeding the psychotic games thus prolonging them.
Certainly, negative thoughts must be stopped for they feed the bad vibes that Pigsy gets off on, which give him a rush and allow him to be taken over by power. He derives power from physical strength, work, working out, his girlfriend and drink! He probably lives for this power since it is what allows him to relax and not be daunted by the world. Because he’s probably fierce to defend his deep insecurity and mistrust of others.
Be light and playful. Laugh at it all. Be powerful. Be a rock. Nothing can affect you. Relax. Focus on the good things. Be happy. Be immune to torment.
“Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out alive.” - Bugs Bunny (Warner Brothers).
Notes from an earlier time.
Forget the ego and its fears. Relax. Be gentle. Focus on light. Send Pigsy positive energy, light. He confronts you with your physical and you confront him with his spiritual weakness.
Train yourself to respond to negativity from others with positive speech/actions/thoughts/will and intention. Compensate. Create a balance and you’ll be happier for being the positive not negative party.
I do not have to go to life. Life comes to me to bring what I will because I make myself a centre, a hub, in the chaos of life.
You must not react. Someone like Pigsy tries to find and push your buttons and get a negative reaction to justify his anger and violent temper, blaming it on you. He seeks a legitimate, easy target to release his anger on. Don’t react at all, even mentally. Ignore him.
“Evil destroys. It opposes even other evil. Evil must have good to feed upon. Goodness nourishes itself. When evil has conquered the good, evil dies. Then the good will grow again. In these truths is the hope for the world.” (Monkey, Episode 14, ‘Catfish, Saint and the Shape-changer’).
‘Resist not evil’ means do not feed evil by energising it in battle. Allow it to conquer or else endure/survive it without the conflict it seeks. Then the evil will withdraw because there is nothing (left) to attack or conquer. It loses interest and goes somewhere else. Then the good returns to life and is developed again in the open freely.
It depends how determined the enemy is: you may need to repeat this and other strategies several times. The enemy is strong in the beginning but you are the stronger as time goes on and finally attain your victory.
Pigsy is unable to confront you again. He is not getting his rush of power, his release of anger or power trip. Negative energy, therefore, is not benefiting from the breeding ground it was drawn to. It is not able to turn the man into a monster (especially if you send love and light).
Sally Solomon (Kristen Johnson): Don, what happens to people? Are they born bad or, one day, do their minds just snap?
Officer Don Orville (Wayne Knight): If only we knew Sally. One minute little Johnny Normal is on his paper round. The next minute, there’s a pile of dead [bodies?] and Johnny is using grandma as a human shield.
Sally: So it’s true then! I mean, you just go to bed normal and wake up a deranged psychopath.
Don: It happens.

Tales of Power by Carlos Castaneda (Pocket Books, New York, U.S., 1974).
* The self-confidence of a warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to himself. You're after the self-confidence of the average man, when you should be after the humbleness of a warrior. The difference between the two is remarkable. Self-confidence entails knowing something for sure; humbleness entails being impeccable in one's actions and feelings.
* A warrior takes his lot, whatever it may be, and accepts it in ultimate humbleness. He accepts in humbleness what he is, not as grounds for regret but as a living challenge.
The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of a beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn't permit anyone to lower his head to him. I know only the humbleness of a warrior, and that will never permit me to be anyone's master.
* I urge you to feel at ease and confident and trust your personal power.
* A man of knowledge cannot possibly act towards his fellow men in injurious terms.
* A warrior is always ready for anything. To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born a reasonable being. We make ourselves into one or the other.
* A warrior acknowledges his pain but he doesn't indulge in it. Thus the mood of a warrior who enters into the unknown is not one of sadness; on the contrary, he's joyful because he feels humbled by his great fortune, confident that his spirit is impeccable, and above all, fully aware of his efficiency. A warrior's joyfulness comes from having accepted his fate, and from having truthfully assessed what lies ahead of him.

“Why does the hostile lion act as he does? Because he has learned that people move out of his way when he spews his anger. What power! What sway! Mostly, he enjoys the conflict and feelings of omnipotence. He views the world as chaotic and he recognises his anger as a means to gain some element of control. So where’s the fear I keep speaking of? The hostile lion rarely shows the fear behind his anger and in some cases is not aware of it himself. He is a wizard at turning his fear into anger as soon as it appears. Sometimes, you catch a glimpse of it on his face before it is transformed into anger. During times of stress at home and in the office, the hostile lion feels such a loss of control that he fears impending disaster. It feels between, for a while, to hurt someone else. For a moment, he gains control over something – that is, you…With some, the kindness tactic works – not, however, with a man such as this, who enjoys seeing people move out of the path of his aggression.” - Betty Perkins (Lion Taming. The courage to deal with difficult people including yourself (Tzedakah Publications, CA., U.S., 1995, p.149-151).
It is unfortunate that we cannot see the destructive energy and intent directed at us from the astral realms, from the Machine World, from dark entities who are not physical human beings, who are not positive or loving. (See ‘The Astral Agitation Agenda’ in Monstaville Book 3). They are cold, calculating and controlling, interested only in provoking fear and anger, keeping humanity down, enslaving and exploiting us. Human beings are more easily influenced from the fourth dimension. Negative emotions and thoughts are more easily stimulated, accepted and sustained in weaker-minded people because they are not thinking for themselves. They are not sufficiently disciplined or self-aware. They rely on other people.
“You see now why the wise one will fill himself with Light often. For as anger or resentment knock at his door, he becomes aware of danger. He may fight in his mind over issues of fairness and truth, but he will seek to wash himself in the Light energies, to use the Violet Flame to cleanse his anger, to release it from him. Have I not told you the Light is your armour? In these transitional times remain vigilant. Utilise the energies of your Higher Heart, linked to your Higher Self. Listen within the stillness. Nurture the inner always. Stay in your own truth.
I tell you the darker energies seek to penetrate your inner energies through the outer world. Through fear. Fear created from loss, from lack, from chemicals and illness. Your outer world is just that. Your outer existence you see, created by others each day. Another's words, another's judgment, another's greed, another's envy. It is your outer world my friend.
You chose to incarnate on a planet of choice, of free will. You are faced with choice many times each day. Constantly we see you giving so much of your energies to your outer world. You constantly allow it to enter your inner world of thoughts and feelings through the emotional body.
You have been told many times that man's greatest lesson is to overcome the emotional body.
And so, I say to you be aware. Use the Light as your armour. Do not allow fear to overtake you, no. Ask yourself ‘what do I truly fear?’"

“So your best protection is that of pushing your radiance outward. As long as your radiance shines outward, and there is a positive pressure on your surroundings, a positive light flow going out, then nothing can get in because the flow is going out.
As long as you are bringing your energy into your life from above - through your antakarana [the connection to Higher Self which we re-establish through creativity and aspiring towards our higher nature. [See Chapter C for description] and I Am Presence, and up through your grounding cord from your beloved planet - as long as you have those two sources of energy, this is inexhaustible, it is infinite! There is never a shortage of energy, there is never a shortage of flow! This can and will be a challenge for all Lightworkers, to continue to bring these sources of energy into their systems and radiate them out upon the world in such a way as to deflect anything that comes in to the contrary. It reaches out to counteract negativity, negative thought forms, and negative emotions. It simply goes out and radiates...radiates! This is the goal!
Until you reach that stage you may need to keep very, very diligent with your protection, constantly monitoring. Remember, I have told you that most of the action is on the inner planes, and that most people have no clue about it. This is still the case...it is still true that most people do not have a clue as to what is really going on, and how the world works, how the physical world is the last place for energy to crystallise, and that the long process before that has been going on for some time.”

“…and everyone is a Lightworker for everyone comes from Light. When we say ‘Light,’ we do not imply light and dark as it is measured here. Light, life, God, Source, Goddess – the same.
