The truth is so much simpler than the mind tells us it is.
Analysis, when used properly – simply prepares our mind to stop resisting the energy of transformation.
When we imagine that analysis will ever actually get us anywhere, this is like thinking that the plane needs its wheels to fly. It is a totally different mechanism.
And yet “psychoanalysis” is an entire field designed to help people. Meanwhile, those analysts themselves remain fixated on fixing – the mind’s rampant addiction.
So, if we are not addicted to fixing our mind gets to actually rest. Silence. Emptiness. Pure being.
Analysis is not pure being. But it is a tool that can be used to lead us back to pure being.
But : “The map is not the territory”.
It can be tempting to misuse a personality typing system (Astrology, Human Design, Gene Keys, Meyers Briggs, Enneagram). Notice that the impulse to use such a system is not silence. If using the system does not point back to silence, it is not being used as intended.
There is a time for learning, and there is a time for integrating and participating in what has been learned.
These two segments are [roughly] called childhood and adulthood.
And of course, it’s not linear until we’ve fully developed. Underdeveloped and uninitiated childhood aspects linger into adulthood for most people on Earth today.
If childhood aspects get a hold of adult systems, they use them in childlike ways.
Adult systems are not understood by child aspects.
There is a big difference between using a system and a system using you.
When using a thought system, it renders the system obsolete because that is the entire purpose. It is not meant to become a “lifestyle”.
When a system uses you, it becomes a “lifestyle”.
An identity.
A recourse.
A numbing agent.
A surrogate parent.
An energy leak.
An addiction.
A trap.
A drain.
A religion.
This is the opposite of empowerment, which the system is of course designed for.
The vast majority of people do not want to be free.
The perceived risk connected to true freedom is the most terrifying thing in the world.
Stepping out of our habituated identity requires a profound trust in our own intuitive knowing.
There is nothing else that can possibly replace that, except for an even deeper level of knowing our knowing.
Saying Yes to Truth is not possible without a matching No to our habituated identity.
Enslavement wrapped up in fancy clothing is not freedom.
Do not be fooled by good intentions.
A fool’s knowledge relies on information.
Like a tree reaching toward the Earth for nutrients,
True knowledge simply happens through intentional acts of creating and receiving.
