Wise people have been testing reality for hundreds of thousands of years. To reinvent everything is totally inefficient. Gaining life experience is of course a must, but we must recognize that in doing so we are likely not the first ones to enter that territory.
One may come into this life with great abilities intact from past life trainings and so that is technically ancient knowledge being passed forward. There are lots of ways to do things. We don’t need to be perfect, it just has to work for us.
However, one of the main issues I see is that people come to false, blatantly incorrect conclusions about the mechanics of the universe. They witness some behavior and run it through an erroneous belief system using pre-existing assumptions and the answer they come up with is then only relevant to people within that belief system.
Getting to the basis of how things work requires one to make friends with confusion. If confusion is seen as an enemy, then it will be more convenient time after time to just fill in an understanding with a false conclusion because it’s more comfortable than being confused.
False conclusions can lead to catastrophic self-sabotage. This can play out for years at a time until one becomes okay with the unknown. One doesn’t need to be emotionally at odds with the unknown in order to alchemize it into the known. There is an organic process happening between the two, which really has nothing to do with us personally.
Our growth represents consciousness knowing itself. That’s it. Anytime we are comparing ourselves to others we are reinforcing the narcissistic core parasite which tortures the human mind incessantly.
It’s time that we stop feeding what’s not working for us, and make ourselves available to processes that actually work, including the resulting confusion. If we are blind to the arrogance imbued within our false conclusions, we are shutting ourselves off from life support.
Our Will cannot be developed when we have such boundaries up preventing it.
