Dignity + Courage + Love = Holding the Line
"Any time an aspiring abuser wants to use us for food, they would first try to make us self-betray and dislike ourselves"
This story is to share my latest article published by Dr. Mercola before the 48 hours run out.
Talking about holding the line of our soul may sound lofty, idealistic, or not very practical at a time like this — but in fact, the opposite is true. It is the most practical line to hold at all times and especially now because holding that line is what protects us against the lies. Holding that line is what allows us to prevail over the tyrants in the long run — and at this point in history, prevailing over the tyrants is our job.
Soul extinguishing can take multiple forms. It can take the form of telling a child that his natural spiritual feeling of joy is wrong, and that he should forget all about it and pray using external words — or pay the price (burn in hell, etc.). It can take the form of making a happy and healthy person feel guilty and full of holes among the sad and the sick. And of course, it can take the form of the boot.
This unfortunate addiction to dominating ideas over aliveness is the driving force behind most horrible things on Earth. Addicts in positions of power are trouble. They have always been trouble no matter their talking pints. Addicts have a hungry hole in their soul, and so they vampire other people’s soul songs and feel entitled to doing so.
Predators (vampires) and anxious nanny figures (servants of the vampires), they paternalize their fellow adults and treat them like children, telling them what to think and how to believe — thus engaging in the act of dimming the light of other people’s souls. And ironically, often, they do so in the name of “the truth,” “the science,” or even God — without admitting that by doing so, they are just dimming other people’s souls.
The world is made in such a way that when we are “whole” (which means, loving and respecting of our soul and our gifts, and believing in our strength and in the wisdom of the universe), we walk our destiny, and we bounce back from any challenge, renewed, with a bigger soul. Suffering hates it and doesn’t stick around too long.
Because the world is made in this way, any negative entity that wants to eat us tries to first disrupt our core, our feeling of intrinsic belonging to joy and our knowledge of how natural it is to be free from the yoke. (It gets more complicated after generations are raised to believe that the yoke is natural, and when loving parents, out of ignorance, do things to dim or scare their children’s souls.)
From birth, we are equipped with all that we need to be strong and whole. Maintaining wholeness during the lifetime requires work, especially given the discombobulated state of the world — but we have the tools.
And so, when somebody wants to dominate a target, they first try to change the target’s inner logic, the spiritual and physical wiring, the state of the life force.
If they don’t succeed at rewiring, the target bounces back after abuse, and the invader can try but cannot create havoc for too long. The invader can impose pain temporarily — but if the person holds the line of their soul, and if the memory of one’s person truth is strong, the forces of the universe deliver the person back to peace.
However, if the rewiring occurs, and the disturbance dims the memory of yokeless existence and makes one unsure of oneself, or scared, or anxious, or hateful, or doubtful in one’s innate spiritual goodness or the goodness of the universe, the negative entity gets some footing in the game.
The rewiring pokes hole in the person’s natural armor, and the person becomes a much easier target for hostile forces, which, in turn, may reinforce a distorted vision and convince the person that he is alone and defenseless in the universe, or that he has to become an abuser so as not to be abused.
