Look at all your negative habits. In this life alone take a close look at your societal, familial, and personal belief systems. For instance, statistically speaking, if you are of white race descent you have a natural aversion to dark-skinned people. Be they green, blue, black or brown, it doesn’t matter, it’s darker than yours. If you are a women, what is your attitude about men, power, money, love, sex? No matter who you are, what are your beliefs about God? God as mother? God as father? What is your over all attitude about being a female, or male? The seven sins of the father relates back to bloodline consciousness.
All of our unconscious desires have root in bloodline consciousness somewhere. To know their origin is vital, and requires remembering. Memory is the wealth of human existence. Memory is the wealth to acquire above and beyond all other wealth.
However, I am not saying that it’s wrong or bad to acquire material wealth. It’s even better if you also have the wealth of memory to go with it. To unlock the unconscious is to be able to tap into the collective mind. To know the origins of all our desires, is to lessen the degree of our suffering by removing the ignorance.
To be in the light of True Knowledge is to be Consciously Aware, and accepting of our own thoughts, actions, and reactions, why, when, where, how, who, what, these are all answered. I would say that this in turn makes it somewhat easier, in that we can see in what we’re dealing with, and change the directional flow of our mind, and therefore, our actions and reactions. However, just being consciously aware does not make us a willing participant to change.
As human beings we tend to resist what is obviously painful, and may welcome resistance as a refuge for survival. Do you understand? If by becoming consciously aware we are willing to break the binds of emotional attachment and aversion, we can accept these unconscious forces through detachment, and see our patterns of the willful motives to remain in our self-created ignorance, and the preservation of the ego personality.
