Ort der äußersten Ichbezogenheit

Die Hölle ist ein Entwicklungszustand des Bewusstseins auf der Stufe der primitiven animalischen Natur der extremen Ichbezogenheit.

 


Der Garten der Lüste, Mitteltafel des Tryptichons
Hieronymus Bosch (~1450-1516) Netherlandish painter

Hawkins beschreibt1, dass Luzifer, die Entsprechung des Spirituellen Egos, sich aufgrund von Stolz und (Dominations)Machtgier weigerte, Gottes Souveränität anzuerkennen.

 

Der Dalai Lama, (BW 570), beschreibt, dass Buddha bei einer seiner zahlreichen Lebenszeiten in die Hölle verdammt war. Während er unbeschreibliche Agonie durchlitt, erwuchs in ihm die spirituelle Intention und der Wunsch, dass sein eigener Schmerz  das Leiden anderer ersetzen könnte und ihnen Nutzen bringen könne. In diesem Augenblick entkam er unmittelbar seiner eigenen Höllenerfahrung.

 

Der italienische Schriftsteller Dante Alighieri, (BW 505), beschreibt 'seine' Höllenerfahrungen (Inferno) detailliert in seinem Buch Die Göttliche Komödie. Ähnliches verhält sich auch T. S. Eliot in seinem Buch Das wüste Land (1922). Vieles spricht dafür, dass beide selbst die Erfahrung der dunklen Nacht der Seele durchlaufen haben. Der spanische katholische Mystiker Johannes vom Kreuz [BW 605] hat seine Seelenpein, genauer gesagt die Agonie des Egos, in seinem Buch Die Dunkle Nacht niedergelegt. Der niederländische Maler Hieronymus Bosch hat Hölleneindrücke und das Verstricktsseins der Seelen in den Notstands-Emotionen in seinen berühmten Werken dargestellt.

Der Sturz der Rebellenengel in die Hölle
William Blake (1757-1827) englischer Maler
  • Ein Zusammenwirken der negativen Extreme ist dadurch in der Lage, eine ganze Gesellschaft herunterzuziehen infolge von luziferischer Verzerrung der Realität, welche den satanischen Mächten die Tür öffnet. FU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 113, 2006

 

 

 

  • [Alle großen Lehrer] lehren, dass diese Dinge [Energiefelder unter einem Messwert von 200] Wege zu spirituellen Bereichen von großem Leiden darstellen, die deshalb "Höllen" genannt werden. "Höllen" bezieht sich auf spirituelle Qual und Hoffnungslosigkeit. Die meisten Menschen, die heute auf der Erde leben, haben bereits wenigstens etwas von den oberen Ebenen der "Hölle" an Hoffnungslosigkeit, Depression, Angst, Terror, Verlust und Furcht durchlebt. Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 348, 2006

Die dunkle Nacht der Seele

  • Das Gefühl, von Gott aufgegeben und ohne Hoffnung zu sein, führt zu einem umfassenden Zustand von Depression und kann eine Veränderung in der Wahrnehmung von Zeit einschließen, die man mit der Erfahrung der niederen Ebenen der Hölle vergleichen könnte, wie Dante sie beschreibt: "Lasst alle Hoffnung fahren, die ihr hier eintretet." Dieser Zustand mag eine vorübergehende Phase als Folge intensiver innerer spiritueller Arbeit darstellen, besonders für einen Suchenden, der alle Warnungen in den Wind schlägt und die tiefsten Ebenen des Bewusstseins auslotet. In dieser Tiefe fühlt der Suchende intuitiv, dass es nötig ist, das Ego zurückzulassen und jeden Zweifel aufzugeben. Erleuchtung ist möglich. Wie man die Ebenen des Bewusstseins durchschreitet, S. 36, 2008

Quotes by D. Hawkins

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment. 2 Peter 2, 4 (NT)

 

Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Revelation 16, 13 (NT)

 

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

Personal avowals

  • I went to the depths of Hell, which are far worse than anybody has ever described aptly. […] At the time I was an atheist. In the midst of being in this timeless Hell, a voice from within said, "If there is a God, I ask Him to help me." I then went into oblivion and when I came out the mind was silenced. There was only a stunning awareness of all of existence as Divinity. Subsequent to that, the mind never did think again! […]
    It [hell] can be experienced by anybody, anytime if they’ve got the right karmic set-up. If they have asked the question that can only be answered in that way. Karmically, you’re driven to a certain point where you precipitate the only experience that will finally solve it. I went from atheism to spiritual despair and then into what Thoreau would call a 'maximal possible condition'. That’s what speaks now.

Psychic attacks:

In his book I. Reality and Subjectivity, and Transcending the Levels of Consciousness Dr. Hawkins talks extensively about psychic attacks. With regards to his own experiences in growing spirituality, he mentions how he is attacked at each step by energies of the lower ego states that had accumulated in consciousness over great expanses of time. Then he says, It is as though the very foundations of the ego are strongly defended, and the defense increases in intensity as its survival is threatened.

"Possession" is being taken over by negative attractor fields.

  • When it's said that someone is "possessed," what's meant is that his consciousness has become dominated by negative attractor fields. By this definition, we can see that entire segments of society are so thoroughly "possessed" that they themselves are totally unconscious of their motives. Afflicted by Forces Unseen?

Hell results from constantly choosing the negative and denying love.

 

  • There are low planes (hells),
    intermediate planes (purgatory or limbo),
    and higher astral planes (celestial).
    These are all possible destinations of the soul or spiritual body or focus of consciousness. Each of these levels has its own hierarchies, 'Gods', and folklore which are 'real' to the inhabitants of these planes. These may be gratifying, even joyful and thrilling, but they are not enlightenment. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 9, S. 129, 2001

Unconscious psychic imprint: Weighing the sinner's heart on the scales

  • In Egyptian mythology, the soul goes to Hades [Duat], where the Lord of the Underworld (Osiris) sits in judgment and weighs the sinner's heart on the scales, whose destiny then hangs in the balance. To understand this depiction (which operates quite mightily in the human psyche) we first note that it is referring to the 'underworld'. This is the judge in the unconscious mind that is self-judging and hands out sentences of guilt, suffering, and self-hatred. This myth is an accurate depiction of the dark side of the unconscious. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 331, 2003

Jesus, the intercessor

 

  • At every instant, one is really making a choice between heaven or hell. The cumulative effect of all these choices determines the calibrated level of consciousness and one’s karmic and spiritual fate. I. Reality Subjectivity, S. 397, 2003

Psychopathic CEOs and politicians corrupting the system

  
  • Psychopaths who have come from higher socio-economic levels often are more socially adept and become white-collar embezzlers or unethical CEOs of large corporations and get involved with stock fraud. Some learn how to set up shell corporations, Ponzi schemes, and pseudocharities, or they become manipulators of the stock or commodities markets. Some become adept at politics and enter government where they become corrupt officials. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 191, 2005

The wolf in sheep's clothing is tempting with simplistic idealizations.

  • Although the culture of hatred hides under the sheep's clothing of the lure of simplistic idealizations, its real nature is exposed as it gathers momentum and becomes the new oppressor. It can readily be seen as an organized attempt to discredit morality, ethics, and spiritual reality then itself merely becomes a new system of "ethics", "moral demand", and oppression.

  • The public in general tends to be naive about mental disorders, even when blatently displayed. People commonly believe that other people are basically just like they are. Nothing could be farther from the truth. There are many people who are the diametric opposite of normalcy and all that is perceived to go with the idealized state. The world is full of people who hate love, integrity, peace, and truth; in fact, it infuriates them. Truth vs. Falsehood.

Malignant narcissism, the ultimate severe psychopathology

  • Malignant messianic narcissism […] is a combination of composite pathologies of an extremely low level of consciousness (cal. 30), plus the deficits of reason; an absence of conscience, the inability to identify with or value other human life; the disdain for human, moral, disdain for ethical values; disdain for women; greed for power; infatuation and aggrandizement of the self, and ego inflation to messianic grandiosity.

Animated quote by David R. Hawkins

Malignant Messianic Narcissism, YouTube film, 4:20 minutes duration, posted 18. March 2011

The disorder […] occurs in two distinct forms:
  1. early onset (childhood bully type), and
  2. adult life onset after some years of normalcy subsequent to the gaining of power (i.e., "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.") […] (Nero [LoC 70], Caesar [LoC 30], Hussein [LoC 90⇒65], Khomeini, Napoleon [LoC 405⇒175⇒75], Hitler [LoC 440⇒45], Ivan the Terrible [LoC 55], etc.)
It also afflicts top, highly paid executives who "lose their sense of reality" and feel "entitled" to help themselves to the company's cash and assets. (Executive privilege. Where do they get the nerve? They have money, power, prestige.

  • The state of feeling abandoned by God and being hopeless results in a global feeling of depression and may include an alteration of the experience of time comparable to the experiencial lower levels of Hell as described by Dante: "Abandon hope all ye who enter here" This state may be a transitory phase as a consequence of intense spiritual work, especially in a devotee who throws all caution to the wind and explores the deepest levels of consciousness, at which depth the devotee intuitively senses that it is necessary to relinguish the ego and remove all doubt. Thus, this state may represent the need to reach inner validation of spiritual truth before total abandonment of the ego itself. Transcending Levels of Consciousness.

  • 2.4 % of world population are demonically possessed. Their acupuncture fields are opposite to the norm, whereby they are repelled by love. These 2.4 % of people cause 78 % of the problems in the world. They are dominated by the Satanic. It would seem they serve some kind of purpose. I don't know how they get onto the planet. They are not lifted by the rise in consciousness. How would you lift them when love repels? Jesus warned his followers not to be concerned with them. Don't encounter evil, avoid it. If you create a science of evil you will become entrapped by it. You are drawn into it. As in exorcism, if you do it enough one day it gets you. Many exorcists commit suicide. You need to calibrate the degree of evil you can handle, but that is the science of evil and it is very dangerous. Teddy and Otis Carnie, Synopsis and Study Guide to Power vs. Force.

Possession drawn via entraining brainwaves, drugs, violent videogames

  • There is a whole generation whose frequencies of consciousness which is dominating their thinkingness is drawn from the lower astral [domain]. […] The field is dominating his consciousness. […] He is now a trained brutal, heartless killer. He is not a 12 year old, he is already pulled by a trained killer out of the astral who is occupying his consciousness right now. So he goes out and kills 6 or 8 people whatsoever. There is no 12 year old there. The 12 year old left a long time age. And he is now possessed by an entity that calibrates at that energyfield. A whole generation of youth is being brainwashed, entrained, conditioned to do that which is thoughtless and uncaring.

  • The fate of people who are less than 200 is less fortunate [statement to be checked via Susan's arm]. 'People less than 200 automatically go to the heavens.' Resist. No that is not so. They go to other places but we would not call them heavens. However, they go to a place in which they are familiar. So, even that is not so bad is it?

  • When you leave the physicality, you go to that which you are. You are moving closer to Divinity and then when you refuse that opportunity, you move the other way by your own choice. The complete absence of God is hell. It's agony, beyond all description. It's far beyond the most horrible imagination. It's an agony of the denial of hope forever. And in the state of the agony of hell, you experience "forever." You get what "forever" is – eternity with no hope at all. That is why I tell people don't fool around with that which is negative. You will never regret having chosen the integrous level. Sedona Seminar God vs. Science. Limits of the Mind, 3 DVD set, 17. February 2007

  • Man geht von der unbewussten Hölle zur bewussten Hölle. Und sich der Hölle, des Samsara, der zerfleischenden Existenz, bewusst zu sein, macht das Heranwachsen und das Leben als Erwachsener zu einem Alptraum von Elend und Entfremdung.

Munch's imagery:

Before creating his expressionist painting The Scream, 1893

  • I was walking along a path with two friends — the sun was setting — suddenly the sky turned blood red — I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence — there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city — my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety — and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature. Excerpted from the diary of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) Norwegian symbolist painter, printmaker, forerunner of expressionist art, Nice, 22. January 1892

 

  • I don't think hell exists. I happen to believe in life after death, but I don't think it's got a thing to do with reward and punishment. Religion is always in the control business, and that's something people don't really understand. It's in a guilt-producing control business. And if you have Heaven as a place where you're rewarded for your goodness, and Hell is a place where you're punished for your evil, then you sort of have control of the population. And so they create the fiery place which has quite literally scared the Hell out of a lot of people, throughout Christian history.

Spoken truth as counterveiling force to evil
"Life is hard, it's no wonder people get corrupted by it. It's not an easy thing to live in a truthful manner, but the alternative is hell. […] I learned a lot about the importance of spoken truth as the counterveiling force against tyranny and authoritarianism. It isn't an alternative political structure that's counterveiling force, it's spoken truth that's the counterveiling force. […] The ability to speak your truth is the bullwark against hell. And losing your job that's nothing compared to where things can go, when they go badly. […] Most people don't understand the risks of [pathological] silence."  Video interview with Jordan Peterson, Ph.D. (*1962) Canadian clinical psychologist, professor of psychology, University of Toronto, political scientist, author, Joe Rogan Experience #877 – Jordan Peterson, presented by The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, host Joe Rogan (*1967) US American comedian and sports color commentator, YouTube film, minute 2:37:33, 2:50:05 minutes duration, 28.

The Gretchen question

Instinctively, Gretchen had identified Mephistopheles as a negative, unloving, corrupting force whereas Faust defended him complacently.

  • Gretchen's direct core crunch questions to Faust: "Tell me, how do you feel about religion?" […]
    "Do you believe in God?"

    Faust (evasively) to Gretchen: "I have no name for that!
    Feeling is all in all. Name is but sound and smoke, Beclouding Heaven's glow."

    Gretchen to Faust about Mephistopheles: "It long has been a grief to me that I see you in such company. […]
    With uncanny horror that man makes me shrink. He is a knave, I really do think!"

    Faust (defensively) to Gretchen: "Such queer birds there must also be."

  • Spoken introduction: "This is all about where the Devil is. Some people say there is no Devil."
    Second verse: "Well, he wants you to hate and he wants you to fear,
    Wants you to fear something that's not even there,
    He'll give you your hate and he'll give you his lies,
    He'll give you the weapons to run out and die.
    And you give him your soul."
Song by Bob Dylan [Work LoC 500] (*1941) US American singer-songwriter, painter, poet, lyricist, Nobel laureate in literature, 2016, addressing the Devil in a song titled Talkin' Devil, recorded at the office of magazine Broadside, 19. January 1963, released on Broadside Ballads, September 1963

 

  • "Tell me what you're gonna do

    O Lord, O Lord, What shall you do?"
Song by Bob Dylan [Work LoC 500] (*1941) US American singer-songwriter, painter, poet, lyricist, Nobel laureate in literature, 2016, addressing the Devil in a song titled Watcha Gonna Do, 1963

Of questionable quality, the song for Broadside titled Talkin' Devil addressing the Devil was performed only once in early 1963. Dylan has adhered all his life to the conviction about the crucial importance of the Devil in this world to which.

 

  • "And if you don't underestimate me,
    I won't underestimate you."

Dylan recognises his own dignity and "special gift" and puts the Devil on the alert not to "underestimate" him.

Appeasing the demons – as practiced by Tsultrim Allione

Appeasing the demons is an ancient Buddhist practice.
Continually feeding of the outer and inner demons and the elated and egocentric demons with wisdom nectar will eventually transform them for the better.

 

Female US American Lama Tsultrim Allione was recognized in Tibet as an incarnation of Machig Lapdrön, the eleventh century yogini. She is the author of Feeding your demons. Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict
2 and Women of Wisdom3

 

As an expert in transforming demons she suggests:

"Take the paradigm of feeding rather than fighting our own inner demons."

 

Allione adapted the wisdom of Tibet's greatest female spiritual master Machig Lapdrön, who lived in the 11th century. The story of Machig goes that the demons were so moved by her fearlessness and by her generosity, compassion, and the stability of her meditation that they said to her,

"Not only will we not harm you, but we will become your protectors and we will protect all of those who follow you."

 

The controversial and extremely successful teacher of her time Machig Lapdrön differentiated four types of demons:

StageType of demonWhat
Who
DescriptionExpression
1.Outer demonsStrategyObject related, perceived by the senses, one's own reaction to itReaction to a car accident, a mean relative, a boss; feeling threatened by a wild animal
2.Inner demonsStrategyNot object related, no sensous contact.
They keep running like the mind does.
Depression, overeating, (serious) illness, addiction, fear of abandonment, anxiety, anger, greed, envy, obsession
3.Demon of elationStrategyAbuse of power by achieved successful peopleAmazing dreams, ego inflation, pride, abuse of power, fame, megalomania, self-centeredness
4.Core demon of egocentricityStrategizerArrogance, self-centeredness (at the core of all demons, most difficult to transpire its pervasiveness, normality)Amazing dreams, ego inflation, pride, abuse of power, fame, megalomania, self-centeredness
Demons (disturbed aspects) are blocking the full presence in the moment.

 

The process of appeasing the inner demons

  • Meet your demon. Locate it in your body, sense it in color and in texture.
  • Intensify it and see your demon as impersonated.
  • Let it arise unedited, be it in humanoid or monstrous form.
  • Notice its details.
  • Look into your demon's eyes once you have it in front of your mind's eye and ask it:
    1. What do you want?Addiction (demands)
    2. What do you need?Deficiency mode (requests)
    3. How will you feel if you get what you need?Sense of relief (redemption)

 

  • Change places with where you saw the demon.
  • Adopt the shape and size and the emotional quality of the demon.
  • Now answer the questions raised above.
    1. What do you want? Icecream!
    2. What do you need? Security, comfort, relaxation
    3. How will you feel if you get what you need? Sense of security and relief
    Wisdom nectar qualifies as an answer to the third question.

 

The protocol of appeasing the inner and outer demons is:

  1. Feed the demon with wisdom nectar to the point of its satisfaction until the demon morphs or even dissolves completely. The remaining figure will be your ally.
  2. Now meet the ally. Or call in the ally in to appear.
  3. Ask the ally how it will protect you and how you can contact it.
  4. Then ask the ally the series of three questions as above.
  5. Change places, the seat of the ally, and answer the series of questions posed to the ally.
  6. Come back to your original seat.
  7. Then the ally will dissolve into you.
  8. Feed the ally with wisdom nectar to the point of its satisfaction.
  9. Both you and the ally will dissolve into awareness.

Four stages of wrestling with inner demons – Milarepa

(↓)

Four stages of dealing with one's inner demons

See also: Hercules and the Hydra, Hell, and Principle 3:1 [Gesetz 3:1]

One evening Milarepa returned to his cave after gathering firewood, only to find it filled with demons. They were cooking his food, reading his books, sleeping in his bed. They had taken over the joint. He knew about nonduality of self and other, but he still didn't quite know how to get these guys out of his cave. Even though he had the sense that they were just a projection of his own mind – all the unwanted parts of himself – he didn't know how to get rid of them.

 

༺༻            Action             Brain/emotion·level
1.So first he taught them the dharma. He sat on this seat that was higher than they were and said things to them about how 'we are all one.'   Cognitive   
2.He talked about compassion and shunyata and how poison is medicine. Nothing happened. The demons were still there.   Behavioral   
3.Then he lost his patience and got angry and ran at them. They just laughed at him.   Affective   
4.Finally, he gave up and just sat down on the floor, saying, "I'm not going away and it looks like you’re not either, so let’s just live here together." Integrative – 1st step

 

At that point, all of them left except one. Milarepa said,
"Oh, this one is particularly vicious."
(We all know that one. Sometimes we have lots of them like that. Sometimes we feel that's all we've got.) He didn't know what to do, so he surrendered himself even further. He walked over and put himself right into the mouth of the demon and said,
"Just eat me up if you want to."
Then that demon left, too.
