Today’s guest post comes from a Blog-Buddy in his 20’s, sharing his thoughts as someone who actively uses Stage Three Energetic Literacy in everyday life. Three cheers for DAVE!
All I added were some links, formatting, and light editing. The voice belongs to this smart and courageous Texan.
A lot of my current outlook and perspective on life comes from being a student and client of Rose’s, off and on, for over the last three years or so, plus being an avid reader of this blog. I think I’ve read every post on here plus 90 percent of Rose’s books.
What I’ve learned is probably what many Enlightened or awake people learn, albeit more gradually, which is that:
- A huge percentage of conventional wisdom and understanding is extremely rudimentary
- And often wholly wrong or useless.
- And this applies for every area of life you can think of.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have this accelerated growth in my understanding because of Stage Three Energetic Literacy, the basis of most of the system of Rosetree Energy Spirituality.
Without the ability to read auras, our basic understanding of life in society is based on mostly observational assumptions. It is as doctors’ knowledge was based solely on viewing a cadaver externally.
Stage Three Energetic Literacy is dissection. Information from the inside out. True knowledge of what’s really going on.
And guess what? It’s far more useful. And often surprising.
Often that knowledge bears no resemblance to the external assumptions that rule society. Read almost any of the amazing aura readings Rose has posted and you will see exactly what I mean. They are an amazing educational tool. And just fun to read.
The more blog posts you read here, the more aura readings you do, the more cord items you capture, the more you deepen your knowledge of the true internal working of humans.
This level of insight is not necessarily compatible with conventional wisdom.
Nor is it available to the majority of our human peers right now. (They could learn though, if interested)
How Stage Three Energetic Literacy has changed me
Although enlightening, this process is also extremely disillusioning.
It has forced me to reconsider countless core assumptions and then integrate to a fuller, broader, more pragmatic identity.
A journey I’m glad to have made but one that has also made me digest some scary, sad, and unfortunate facts about human life. This has caused an even greater intellectual, emotional, and spiritual schism between myself and many of my countrymen.
I’m undoubtedly more effective and more powerful as a result, though. Certainly I have learned to see things in a very different light.
Trusting my own self-authority
What this process has done has been to reinforce my belief in the irrationality of humans.
It has shown a spotlight on the sometimes comic ways that people play out their lives because of STUFF. I laughed at this before, but was as confused about life as anyone else.
Now I’m more secure in the ways in which I understand life and society, so I doubt myself less.
In some ways I have become less sympathetic to certain issues people face, partly because of my belief in life contracts and also because of a lessening tolerance for people who subscribe to victomology.
I have also because less nihilistic, which is a positive development. I have become confidently theistic.
Further I believe the nature of the human life is one of suffering. The very REASON we incarnate is to be confused, sad, depressed, angry, insecure. That is why we leave heaven.
I used to be more indignant at the ” injustices” of the world. Whereas now I accept them, mostly. I’m not saying I rejoice in babies dying of malnourishment in Asia or Africa, but it no longer bothers me the way it once did.
Expressions of collective consciousness
No longer do I take the broader issues of groups, countries, or societies so personally.
Life, society, and the world are often dreadful. But they are designed that way.
I’ve stopped talking the world as a conceptual whole so seriously. Instead I have become much more serious about my own life, my own happiness, my own relationships, my own money.
Before it was the opposite. This can in part be attributed to my developing Empath Empowerment, becoming the most important person in the room.
Accepting reality more
What I’m getting at is that I see a lot of interpersonal interactions as continuous misunderstandings, neuroses, and irrational emotions.
My favorite TV show, “The Office” (US version) plays off these themes of life.
Nearly every character is so self-interested, it’s like seeing a bunch of short-sighted kids in adult bodies interacting with each other.
Most of the characters lack self-awareness, continually acting out their insecurities and ID-based desires in comical and absurd ways.
“The Office” distinguishes itself because it’s not so exaggerated as other comedies. It expertly captures the lame, trite, and meaningless power struggles and dramas of suburban office workers in the U.S. who have little hope, desire, or ability to seek a better life, conveying their stuckness in a subtle and plausible way.
Sounds depressing, doesn’t it? Sometimes it is. But it’s also hilarious and, ironically, often heartfelt and genuine. I highly recommend it.
But that’s kind of how I see many people living out their lives. Even those of us who hold ourselves out as “awake” or spiritual are still literally animals. Like we’re only a finite number of genetic sequences removed from monkeys or domesticated dogs.
Therefore, part of my journey, and what I understand of the journey of many householders who have moved into Householder Enlightenment, is a deep acceptance of their humanity. Their desire for power. For prestige. For sex. For money.
I remember when this blog explored the topic of of Enlightened gurus who seduced students, who lied, who deceived.
Many commenters were outraged. I didn’t really care, in part became I think I’ve been in this process of accepting myself as a human with spontaneous thoughts, wishes, and desires.
I am a spiritual being housed in the body of an animal, to some degree still governed by his animality.
In general I abhor self-righteousness and coercive moralism coming from any direction, partially because it often spews from immoral or amoral people but also because my expectations of humans in general aren’t too high.
Plus it doesn’t surprise me when people give into their animal self.
Also important to me, I recognize that on a spiritual level… this is all an illusion. A big God-made videogame we consent to.
Even though I know that, I don’t take it as a warrant to not care about life. In fact this has is inspired me to work in the opposite direction.
