Monstaville Book I. Chapter 6


“To smile at an enemy is to disarm him.”
- The Mother (Seeds of Light).

Keep your mood light and humorous - be detached from your life and all its poison. Don’t let it touch you or penetrate to your blood/soul.

Then you can be free from its illusion and you can afford to be gentle and divine.

‘Those who look outwards dream, but those who look inwards awake.’ - Carl Jung.

“If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.” - Marcus Aurelius.

It is like living with a wild cat, like a lion, upstairs. (Wild cats: animals like to fight to feel their power as the only power they know). His aggression, and all anger/violence is nothing more than an expression of the beast, the animal within. He is very physical and relies on drink to summon forth the power of the beast which human form/society inhibits. He has not developed his mind because he has not had time to evolve that far. It is a reminder that all life is evolving at a different pace depending on its stage of evolution. All fundamentally one. You must show understanding and tolerance. You must be patient with the beast in yourself and patient with the beast in others, and not expect everyone to display the same level of respect and self-control. Forgive and sympathise. Plus, you have to be responsible, for you cannot be trusted with divine power if you have not laid your tiger down to rest - if you cannot control the animal part of yourself totally. The two do not mix. Evolve from one to the other; never mix the two for you will pollute the divine and lose it. Nourish the light and let the darkness fall away.

Plus, whatever violence is shown by others is but a reflection of your own violence in previous lifetimes (and the remnants or fear of abusing power again hidden in your unconscious). The economy of nature (Edgar Cayce’s reference to the human loss of memory regarding past lives). Whether you caused harm to the individual concerned or not, you were once like that yourself, and terrorised those who had evolved to greater sensitivity (and, through your ignorant behaviour, they evolved further too, towards ascension). Just as they had to put up with your volatile nature, so you must show forbearance with that of those who are as you were. You must pass these tests before you can grow truly in divine power. Do not react to animals with the animal in yourself. For then neither of you grows. Respond with all the Light - the love, understanding and patience - that you can find within yourself. This ensures your own growth as well as having a positive effect on the aggressor.

The caterpillar is thick-skinned and insensitive and it does not appreciate the butterfly’s delicate nature. It does not comprehend the dame it can cause and regards all life as caterpillars because that is the only level of existence that it knows. In fact, it views the butterfly as a caterpillar, as a reflection of itself. There is a caterpillar within every butterfly, but it is a dead, lifeless, discarded creature. The caterpillar beast detects slight traces of it and it is these which it relates to, he only signs of life it recognises, even though they are no longer expressed and belong to previous lifetimes. The caterpillar wants the butterfly to react the same way as itself. It can only trust ego, for ego is all it knows. It desires to bring you down to its level so it can relate to you and also prove it own power and feel secure as a beast. A mere beast that refuses fearfully and stubbornly to grow. It is jealous of humans in whom exists the divine element which is difficult to attain and which takes many lifetimes to sense and develop.

The ultra-masculine ego which respects the mother’s caring nature lives its caring side through them without suffering the conflict of developing over feelings in oneself. He may imitate his mother in some ways, but he expects everyone to be like his mother. Otherwise, they could be like his violent father, and that is impossible for him to deal with. It is a potential threat. Hence, severe paranoia! A lion which has not long been in human form continues to depend on the mother. It learns about human feelings and values from its mother, even though it finds them alien and difficult to express when away from her. Plus, he probably has few other companions because he has a drink problem and because he views everyone as a potential threat to his own security, his mother’s and partner’s.

“I owe much to my friends; but, all things considered, it strikes me that I owe even more to my enemies. The real person springs life under a sting even better than under a caress.” - Andre Gide.

Retrospective inserts.

“We as humans are not that far above the animals in following our impulses. It is only by coming into tune with your Higher Self that you begin to draw away from the animal aspect of your human self. You are in fact growing up.” (In Touch with Raynor C. Johnson by Sheila Gwillam, Light Publishing, London, U.K., 1996, p.186).

“The Higher Self is the space within each and every one of us that is filled with all nourishing qualities such as joy, creativity, intuition, peace, power, love, compassion and all good things. I’m sure there have been moments, however fleeting, when you have been able to access this transcendent place within. At those times, all seemed right with the world. The fear and struggle were replaced by a sense of ‘All is well,’ but the feeling never lasts. Why? Because it is our tendency to revert to a more familiar part of ourselves which I call the ‘Lower Self.’ - Susan Jeffers (Feel the Fear...and Beyond, Rider Books, London, U.K., 1998, p.11).

If coal is to turn into diamond, it must die as coal. So the danger is great enough. But it is a danger for the coal as such. If it is to become a diamond, it can do so only if it disappears as coal. Perhaps you don't know that there is no generic difference between diamond and coal. Essentially they are of the same element. Coal turns into diamond in the course of a very long period of time. Chemically there is no basic difference between diamond and coal. But the coal cannot remain coal if it wants to become diamond. So the coal faces a great danger.
                The same way a man faces a danger if he is on his way to find God. He will die as man. If a river is running to meet the sea, it is facing a great danger. It will disappear, it cannot escape it. But what do we mean by danger? It means to disappear. They alone can go on a journey to God who are prepared to disappear, to die.
                Death does not erase us as completely as does meditation, because death only severs us from one body and joins us with another. You don't change in death; only your clothes change. You remain as you are. So death is not so great a danger as we all take it to be. Meditation is a greater danger than death, because while death only snatches your clothes away from you, meditation snatches you away from you.
                Meditation is absolute death.
                In the past, those who knew said that meditation is death, total death. In meditation not only clothes, but everything changes. But if a river wants to become the sea, it has to risk its life. In fact the river does not lose anything when it falls into the sea; it loses nothing at all, it grows to become the sea itself. And when coal turns into diamond, it loses nothing; it grows to become diamond. But so long as coal is coal it is afraid of losing itself. And so long as a river is a river it is afraid of getting lost. How does it know that on meeting the sea, it will not lose anything, it will turn into sea itself.
                ...If you want to save yourselves, you will have to lose God. And if you want to find God, you will have to lose yourselves.
                One night someone asked Jesus, ‘What should I do so that I find this God you always talk about?’ Jesus said, ‘You don't have to do a thing except that you lose yourself. Don't save yourself.’ The man said, ‘What are you talking about? What will I gain if I lose myself?’ And Jesus answered, ‘He who loses finds himself, and he who saves, loses himself forever.’

    Interviewer: are your kids interested in drawing?
    Tim Burton: Yeah. My son has a monster book and I'll draw a shape and he'll draw some of it and we go back and forth. It's fun. You know, you kind of learn a lot from them because you kind of go back to the roots of why you like drawing. It's great; it's creativity and therapy and exploration.

“Most of what is happening to you on a personal level is known subconsciously, as you planned for this time and the opportunity to ascend. Regardless of your experiences, if you feel that somehow progress is being made then you may be sure you are heading for fulfilment. When you reflect on them you might admit to needing the lessons involved. Many revolve around personal relationships, and it is wise to leave the Earth having resolved any differences. More importantly, in making your peace with others remember that forgiveness also involves yourself.” - SaLuSa (channelled through Mike Quinsey, 12 March 2010,

Baldrick (Tony Robinson): I'm glad to say, I don't think you'll be needing those pills, Mr. B.
Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson): Am I jumping the gun, Baldrick, or are the words ‘I have a cunning plan’ marching with ill-deserved confidence in the direction of this conversation?
Baldrick: They certainly are!
Blackadder: Well, forgive me if I don't jump up and down with glee; your record in this department is not exactly a hundred percent. So, what's the plan?
Baldrick: We do...nothing.
Blackadder: Yep, that's another world-beater.
Baldrick: Wait, I haven't finished. We do nothing until our heads have actually been cut off...
Blackadder: ...and then we spring into action?
Baldrick: Exactly! You know how, when you cut a chicken's head off, it runs round and round the farmyard?
Blackadder: Yyyyyyyeah...
Baldrick: Well, we wait until our heads have been cut off, then we run round and round the farmyard, out the farm gate, and escape. What do you think?
Blackadder: Yes...My opinions are rather difficult to express in words, so perhaps I can put it this way... [Tweaks Baldrick's nose]
Baldrick: It doesn't really matter, 'cause the Scarlet Pimpernel will save us, anyway.
Blackadder: No he won't, Baldrick. Either I think up an idea, or, tomorrow, we die - which, Baldrick, I have to tell you, I have no intention of doing, because I want to be young and wild, and then I want to be middle-aged and rich, and then I want to be old and annoy people by pretending that I'm deaf. Just be quiet and let me think.

Passionate Despair by Jérémie Fleury

Nothing Can Stand Before the Power of Love But Love Itself

The Messages from God

Channelled through Yael and Doug Powell, 8 February 2013

Beloved one, nothing can stand before the power of Love. Love is the one true power, and everything that you have imagined that your life can be other than Me, has to dissolve when Love is fully present.

Every time that you believe you see a world of discord and strife, open your heart and let the power of Love blaze through. Trust Me with every step – that nothing can stand before the power of Love except for Love itself.

You have dreams of a world of pain and suffering, and you have made it into something very individual. Now it is time to remember the truth. There is only one false decision, one moment of turning away from My Love, and all that must occur to rectify everything is for you, My precious heart, My holy and beloved one, to turn back and choose Me.

Every time you believe that something has power over you… Every time you allow the false dream to have the upper hand, you continue the promulgation of every possibility as life as separate from God. But now, beloved ones, your hearts are called back. You are here now to remember the truth. Let it flood you; let it lift you up; let it be your exaltation. In the moment when you give Love with your whole heart and soul and being, give it precedence over everything that the mind has designed. In that moment everything but Love disappears.

This is the threshold upon which you stand now. Humankind is ready to turn back and to remember that the only thing here is God and the only truth is Love. It is bubbling up from within you and every heart is according it. Every soul is singing in joy, remembering itself as this one whole being, the truth of God standing forth in joy and accepting the true and only power of Love.

It is time to let your heart sing in gladness. There is no reason not to and there is no necessity for elaborate rituals for dissolving the dream, unless, of course, you want to. Anything you need to shake free from the illusion that you are less than the whole of Love I Am is fine, beloved ones, and I totally support you.

But I Am here to tell you that Love is blazing and I Am reaching for your hearts. Nothing else is needed but the end of this separation, the remembrance of your merging with Me and the recognition of the truth of your being as the whole, as the perfect heart of God I Am.

As you allow Love to be your truth and your priority, as you open your heart and become this blazing Light, the movement of Love, then every illusion of separation has to fall away and you are lifted up to live in joy every moment.

It is time, beloved ones, to stop the individualization of this dream of separation from the truth of Love. It is time to stop believing in a billion stories, stories of all kinds. It is time to bring it back to the truth of one choice to turn away and one solution only and that solution is to turn back to Me.

Let yourself release your part in the weaving of this story of other than Love. It is time for you to give Me your heart until you recognize that there is only one heart here and it is the heart of God. It is everywhere. It is astounding in its beauty, and it is always and forever based in the power of Love and nothing else.

The life of all Creation is one life, expressing itself in joyous creativity in countless ways. The one dream of separation from God is just that – one dream, and it is time for it to be over. It is time for you to recognize the truth that as you stand in the power of Love, there is only the heart of God here, and only the truth expressing it as this which you call your life.

So I Am asking you to turn and to remember deep within you this great vibration, the power of Love – to feel it so profoundly and to rejoice in our communion that whenever the world of the mind arises, the power of Love goes before you and instantly transforms it.
I Am here reaching for you, drawing you back into the truth of this wholeness, that you are not separate from Me, but rather, are My expression of the unique and beautiful aspects of My heart that is the whole spectrum of humanity manifesting the beauty of God in profound and miraculous ways.

As you become this beacon of Love, beloved ones, you will watch the illusion dissolve before you instantly. You will be amazed and filled with gratitude, that what unfolds from that point is the vista of joy and beauty that speaks of the truth of Love in the symbols of this world. This, just for a little while…until in a great blaze of Light, that which believed itself a separate life and a separate humanity is once again encompassed completely and fully in the glory of God and the song of Love is one song again…

It is time to nurture the power of Love, time to recognize the presence of your heart, beloved ones. Time to allow it to take precedence over everything in your life, that the power of Love may dissolve every story, may heal every truth that you believe has been broken, and may restore your everlasting oneness with Me that is one life. We may rejoice continually for the gift of this circle of giving and receiving that is the beauty of My heart.

As you allow Love to go before you and to walk as you, your every step is supported by the whole of Creation, and if for a moment, you believe the mind and take back your identity as a limited human being, all that is necessary is to return to the open heart, to come again into our glorious communion, to feel the truth of God singing as your essence, to rejoice in the power of Love as the one truth present eternally. Then, you may take your next step and feel the continuous elevation and the ecstasy you are meant to live in.

I Am calling you to return your whole focus to Me and to this discovery of what it is that lives within you…this point of pure Light that is the center of all Creation that explodes forth in continuous celebration. As you accept that you are the very movement of Love, then as I said before, you become the power of life that moves and creates the world before you, no longer believing yourself to be the victim to that which you have believed is outside of you, recognizing that this joyous space within is the full expression of the truth of God I Am right here as you.

When you feel the power of Love and allow it to be your one truth, the Light is so strong that all that existed in shadows must be gone in an instant. As you allow this remembrance of unity to hold sway, then all of life communes with you as part of your very self. There is a new depth to your being. It is expanding all limited boundaries, dissolving everything that kept you separate from Me.

Every moment that you thought that something was Real that wasn't Love… in this place that is the presence of our hearts, the truth of Love is revealed to be your Home and the power of Love is magnified with your every breath. That which the mind has called miracles become the way you live, raising you up to experience life that recognizes only one power, the power of God.

You can call on this power of Love, knowing that nothing of the world of ego can stand before it and allow it to be your continuous experience. The vibration of Love is undeniable, and because it is the one true power of Creation, it entrains all life unto it and does so effortlessly. The more time that you can spend in this vibration, the more moments you can sink into eternity, the more you can allow the heart to love the mind and thus transform it, the freer you shall be of the illusion that there is anything other than Love and that there could be anything Real other than God, including, beloved ones, yourselves.

Every moment I Am here living you, giving you the vision of your truth. So, every moment, Love is available to take charge of your experience. If you will let it dissolve all stories of believing in anything else, you will recognize the truth of your being. If, as yet, for a little while you need convincing that you can release this story of a life separate from Me…a life in which you experience anything other than perfection and joy…whatever you need to let it go, beloved ones, I Am with you.

But I promise you that ultimately all you must do is turn and open your heart to Me, letting yourselves remember that this Love that is the only real thing has always been the truth of your being and the power of Love never fails you. Nothing can stand before it that isn't Love and beauty, that isn't the power of God.

As each of you becomes this vibration, becomes the open and shining heart of Love, then that which you see as the world is transformed without a thought, since the power of Love takes precedence always over any and all illusions, over any heart's beliefs in Love and something else.                                                                                                                                

You can call on the power of Love any time that you choose and you will feel the response blazing forth right through your precious hearts to dissolve the illusion of a life separate from Me, to release the stories of a world based on two powers. If you
allow Love to do its work, you will stand free, effortlessly and joyfully free to remember that you are God and that this life is the expression of My heart.

The power of Love is the only power that is Real. Deep within you it is blazing at this moment. So, anything that has made you believe that you are less than the perfection of God, place it within your heart and let the power of Love transform it, until you feel the truth alive in your every breath that you receive your life directly from this grand explosion of Love, propelling you into the experience of pure and limitless good and wonderful exploration of this limitless creativity and endless beauty.

As you come to feel your heart as the pulsing heart of God I Am, you will also see that the world of illusion can only exist on the periphery of your being. It has never touched your core. It cannot, for there is nothing else above present as the truth of your being. As you feel and live this, whatever comes into your vision of a world created of the belief in two powers, you will be able to feel the power of Love transforming, until the way before you is clear and every step is taken in grace. Every moment is alive in the abundance of God. The truth of your being will be accepted at last.

There is only the power of Love here and it is you. Beloved ones, use these words, if the illusion seems to take over. Nothing stands before the power of Love and feel the truth of God I Am as the I Am of you.

Recognize, beloved one, that you are this power, and step forth whole and perfect. Allow your heart to blaze its light and remember this truth. Call on it. Come to live it. Nurture it deep within you. Remember it with every breath and use it to dissolve anything that stands before you that isn't this limitless power of Love.

Nothing stands before the power of Love, the one force of the universe, the only true power, the power of God, and it is who you are.

Osho on the Cause of Suffering


The Book of Secrets. Discourses on Vigyan Bhairav Tantra

By Osho

We very often feel that we create our own sufferings. In spite of this, why do we continue creating them? And when and how does one stop creating one′s own suffering?

The first thing, and very basic to be understood, is that whenever you say "we very often feel that we create our own suffering", this is not the case. You never really feel that you are the creator of your own suffering. You may think so, because you have been taught so; because for centuries and centuries teachers have been teaching that you are the creator of your own suffering and no one else is responsible. You have heard these things, you have read these things. They have become your blood and bone, they have become your unconscious conditionings, so sometimes you repeat like a parrot "we create our own suffering". But this is not your feeling, this is not your realization, because if you realize it, then the other thing is impossible. Then you cannot say, "in spite of this, why do we continue creating it?"

If you really feel, and if it is your own feeling that you are the creator of your own suffering, any moment you can stop - unless you want to create it, unless you enjoy it, unless you are a masochist. Then everything is okay, then there is no question. If you say,
I enjoy my suffering, then it is okay; you can go on creating it. But if you say, I suffer and I want to go beyond it. I want to stop it completely - and I understand that I am the creator, then you are wrong. You dont understand it.

Socrates is reported to have said that knowledge is virtue. And there has been a long discussion for these two thousand years over whether Socrates is right or wrong - knowledge is virtue. Socrates says that once you know something, you cannot do contrary to it. If you know that anger is suffering, you cannot be angry. This is what Socrates means - knowledge is virtue. You cannot say,
I know anger is bad; still I move in it. What to do about it now? Socrates says that the first thing is wrong. You dont know that anger is bad; thats why you go on moving in it. If you know, you cannot move in it. How can you move against your own knowledge? 

I know that if I put my hand in the fire it is going to be painful. If I know, I cannot put my hand in. But if somebody else has told me, if I have heard through the tradition, if I have read in the scriptures that fire burns, and I have not known fire, and I have not known any similar experience, only then can I put my hand into fire - and that too only once.

Can you conceive it? That you have put your hand into fire and you have been burned and you have suffered, and again you go and ask,
I know that fire burns, but in spite of it I go on putting my hand into the fire. What to do about it? Who will believe that you know? And what type of knowledge is this? If your own experience of suffering and burning cannot stop you, nothing is going to stop you. Now there is no possibility, because the last possibility has been missed. But no one can miss it; that is impossible.

Socrates is right, and all those who have known, they will agree with Socrates - that agreement has a very deep point in it. Once you know.... But remember - the knowledge must be yours. A borrowed knowledge won
t do; borrowed knowledge is useless. Unless it is your own experience, it is not going to change you. Others experiences are of no help.

You have heard that you are the creator of your own suffering, but this is just in the mind. It has not entered your being, it is not your own knowledge. So when you are discussing, you can discuss about it cerebrally, but when the actual phenomenon happens, you will forget, and you will behave in the way you know, not in the way others know.

When you are at ease, cool, collected, silently discussing anger, you can say it is poison, it is a disease, evil. But when someone makes you angry then a complete change occurs. Now it is not an intellectual discussion, now you are involved. And the moment you are involved, you become angry. Later on again, retrospectively, when you again get cool, the memory will come back, your mind will again start functioning, and you will say,
That was wrong. It was not good of me to do that. I know anger is wrong.

Who is this
I? - just intellect, just the superficial mind. You dont know - because when someone pushes you into anger, you throw this mind away. It is useful as far as discussion is concerned, but when a real situation arises, only the real knowledge will help. When there is no situation, you can go on. Even in a discussion the real situation can arise. The other can go on contradicting you so much that you become angry and then you will forget. 

Real knowledge means that which has happened to you. You have not heard about it, not read about it, you have not collected information about it - it is your own experience. And then there is no question, because after that you cannot go against it. Not that you will have to make an effort not to go against it; simply you cannot go against it.

How can I? When I know this is a wall and I want to go out of this room, how can I try to pass through the wall? I know this is a wall, so I will search for the door. Only a blind man will try to go out through the wall. I have got eyes. I see what is a wall and what is a door. 

But if I try to enter the wall and tell you,
I know very well where the door is, and I know this to be a wall, but in spite of this, how can I stop myself from trying to enter the wall? then that means that as far as I am concerned that door looks false. Others have told me that it is the door, but as far as I am concerned, I know that door is false. And others have told me that this is a wall, but as far as I see, I see the door here in this wall, and that is why I try.

In this situation you have to make a clearcut distinction between what you know and what you have gathered as knowledge. Don
t rely on information. From the greatest source - even if you collect from the greatest source - information is information. Even if a Buddha says it to you, it is not your own, and it is not going to help you in any way. But you can remain thinking that it is your knowledge, and this misunderstanding will waste your energy, time and life.

The basic thing is not to ask what to do so that suffering is not created. The basic thing is to know that you are the creator of your suffering. Next time whenever a real situation arises and you are in suffering, remember to find out whether you are the cause of it. And if you can find out that you are the cause of it, the suffering will disappear, and the same suffering will not appear again - impossible.

But don
t deceive yourself. You can - thats why I say it. When you are suffering you can say, Yes, I know I have created this suffering, but deep down you know that someone else has created it. Your wife has created it, your husband has created it, someone else has created it, and this is simply a consolation because you cannot do anything. You console yourself: No one has created it, I have created it myself, and by and by I will stop it.

But knowledge is instant transformation; there is no
by and by. If you understand that you have created it, it will drop immediately. And it is not going to come up again. If it comes again, it means the understanding has not gone deep.

So there is no need to find out what to do, and how to stop. The only need is to go deep and to find out who is really the cause of it. If others are the cause then it cannot be stopped, because you cannot change the whole world. If you are the cause, only then can it be stopped.

s why I insist that only religion can lead humanity towards non-suffering. Nothing else can lead, because everyone else believes that the suffering is caused by others; only religion says that suffering is caused by you. So religion makes you the master of your destiny. You are the cause of your suffering, hence you can be the cause of your bliss.

           Buddha spoke of the 4 Noble Truths:
  1.  Simply to exist on earth is to suffer
  2. Suffering is tied to desire
  3. Elimination of desire means the end to suffering
  4. The method is the 8-fold path
   These 8 steps are as follows: (1) Harmlessness or self-restraint (Yama); (2) Self-purification and contentment (Niyama); (3) Posture (Sana); (4) Breath and prana control (Pranayama); (5) Introspection or abstraction (Pratyahara); (6) Concentration (Dharana); (7) Contemplation (Dhyana); (8) Superconsciousness or Oneness (Samadhi).
