Day 17: The Liar

The Liar. Have you met me? Have you met yourself? The act of lying attempts to assuage the fear of what the liar unquestionably knows. The Liar lives with an ubiquitous fear of the truth of themselves. When I lie, it is because I fear expressing the truth of myself. I may no... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

Day 16: The Sacrificial Lamb

I forgive myself that I have sacrificed myself for people and things that were not one and equal with life. What really bums me I made a really piss-poor sacrificial lamb. I gave up so much of myself and didn't even get very much in return. Supposedly Jesus Supposedly, God sa... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

15. The Bookworm

"Discontinue sagacity, discard knowledgeThe people benefit a hundred-fold." LaoTse "All the philosophies in the world can't compare to a single physical atom." Bernard Poolman I've always enjoyed reading and having a collection of books to support my quest for gaining kno... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

Day 14: The Husband

Having been twice-married, I have lived through the experience of being a "husband." Since both marriages failed I suppose it could be easily said that I also failed as a husband, which I don't mind admitting. I completely went through the motions of being a husband and never ... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

Day 13: The Good Son

Mother always said that I never gave her any trouble. Typically I was always a good boy. Truth is I had to work at it, what with being the "man of the house" when I was only eight years old. Even then I knew that I was somehow being shafted out of a "normal" childhood by my pa... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

Day 12: The Good Guy Character

Looking into the character of the Good Guy, I realize that this is one I've accepted and invested a lot of time in. The Good Guy emerges from my Midwestern roots program. Midwesterners are laid back, plain talking and for the most part, like to pretend that we are very decent ... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

Day 11: The Quitter Character

In the past when things got real tough to handle, I don't mind telling you folks that I was not beneath walking away and quitting. Throw in the towel. Hang up the gloves, "If I can't beat it, QUIT!" I've walked out of jobs, relationships, marriages, bands , you name it. ... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

07/16/2012 – 2012 : The Ignorance of Knowledge and Information

It is the collective mind of the  human race that has erected numberous sciences, arts, religions, superstitions, philosophies, metaphysics in a vain attempt to understand the existence, the reality we have found ourselves in. The only area in our lives that we are under no do... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 10: The Substances of Separation

"But as with Energy that has emerged as the substance of separation within me, because I did not stand with/as my equality and oneness – Money as the World-System has emerged as the manifestation of separation, because we as humanity could not regulate/take directive principle... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

07/08/2012/ – 2012 and Deepak Chopra’s Guru-Speak

“A man’s goodness is truly measured by what he is, not what he does.” – Deepak Chopra. This nonsensical piffle is probably taken very seriously by resident  Chopraholics and it seems this guy is not afraid to say something incredibly silly and lack the insight necessary to be ... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 9 The Alluring Illusion of Mental Energy

"I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to see/realise/understand how Money drives the very Energy of and within my Mind, and thus fuels and defines the nature of my thoughts, internal conversations and reactions of emotions and feelings."[1] Looking at t... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

06/21/2012 – 2012 and the Uselessness of Compassion

Shinzen Young: Genuine wisdom or ironic Zen nonsense?  “Compassion is to share the pain without sharing the suffering.” ~Shinzen Young.  How can one who claims to be a spiritual master be so oblivious of misguided nonsense that escapes from the depths of  their brainpan? And y... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 8: Betrayal!

"My friends ain't enough for one hand." [1] This post has taken me over a week to post. I spent (err, wasted) lots of time ruminating over the subject - to make sure I get it just right. But it doesn't seem to be happening for me. But one week is enough and I'm just going to ... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

05/28/2012: The Role of Religion as Existential Security

Unfortunate, ain’t it? In Nietzsche’s, The Gay Sciencewe are met with this famous trope: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned ha... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

05/02/2012 – 2012 and Randian “Virtue” of Selfishness Part 2

Ayn Rand. Fanboys Assemble!  “I swear—by my life and my love of it—that I will never live for  the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.” Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged It is a common assertion of the disciples of Ayn Rand’s philosophical vision of Selfishness t... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 7 The Desire for Special Spiritual Knowledge

Deep into my spirituality years I was quite the seeker of what I thought was rare and obscure metaphysical information that was contained in channeled materials. I didn't follow everything as some of it was evern too goofy for me to swallow. Such as the Course in Miracles, whi... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

05/11/2012 – Flash: Oldest Known Mayan Calendar Found

End Times Prophecy, or did they just ran out of space? And guess what? The astronomical tables found in a remote Guatemala dig  at the largest-known Classic Mayan site, Xultún, are 500 years older than those preserved in the Maya codices, and they do not reference any End Time... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

05/09/2012 -”Is Everything Thoughts?” 2012 and Abraham-Hicks

The question at the beginning of this Abraham-Hicks clip: “Is it fair to say that everything is thought?” Before we continue with the answer given by Esther Hicks’ channeled personality “Abraham,” a bit of exposition. The question comes from a historical spiritualist assumptio... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 6: Hung up on the Absurdity of Selling

The past few weeks I have been facing my resistance towards selling. I've looked at this for quite a while, this resistance, and it seems to me that my resistance for "getting out there" and selling products in order to survive has its roots in what I've judged as the "absurdi... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

05/04/2012 – 2012 My Reply to “Franklin Beenz”

Franklin Beenz (if that’s his real name) is upset that I don’t give a fuck whether he properly investigates the Desteni Material or not. Something is stuck in Franklin’s craw and I don’t know why he insists on posting his disappointment about… why I don’t give a fuck whether h... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 5: A walk through Hell-th

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to resist writing self-forgiveness about being tired of being sick. I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself for postponing writing about being sick because it sounds like whining and I hate whining to others about s... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

05/01/2012 – 2012 and the Right to be Selfish

Did Anders Behring have the "right" to kill? I usually don’t reference other blogs, but in this case, this is an exception.  This blog is directed to the comment section where the idea that “people have the right to be selfish.” “People have the right to be selfish.” This stat... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

Day 4 - Failed Relationships and the Pattern of Secrecy

I've had so many failed relationships that it would be very hard and lengthy blog to read. I imagine it could fill a good size book to relate. But I will simply recount the major pattern present in my life with the relationships that I am responsible for failing and then rela... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

A Former Seeker's Journey to Life

Day 3. Changing Jobs and my attitude towards working. A blog that's taken me a week and a half to write... Now, the below graphic pretty well sums up my attitude to jobs... especially the crummy jobs I've ever held. It hit me today, in an existential moment, not for the f... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

2012/3/31 – 2012 & U.G.K. – Is Enlightenment Possible?

While I don’t agree with everything he said, U.G. Krishnamurti got one thing right. “Enlightenment is a thought-induced experience.” He correctly demonstrated how the very idea of “Enlightenment” is contingent  is linked to accepting the claims of  the “Great Sages” without q... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

A Former Seeker's Journey to Life

DAY-2: The Consequences of Seeking Knowledge Surely, there can be no consequences in seeking knowledge, I'm sure many will say. Knowledge is to consciousness like air to lungs. The acquiring of practical knowledge, technical knowledge, scientific knowledge is what drives the ... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

A Former Seeker's Journey to Life

Day 1 Preamble: This blog is a consists of a 7-year experiment, a journey into Life through recounting 2556 days of identifying and deconstructing harmful psychological patterns through the process of self-forgiveness and self-correction. Why is such a protocol necessary, and... —aformerseekersjourneytolife.blogspot.com

3/28/2012- 2012: Spirituality as Energetic Mind Enslavement

Freedom of Belief: Narratives of Mental Enslavement The ancient Greek philosophers that lived before Socrates (d. 399 BCE) tried to devise cosmologies that offered a more naturalistic explanation of how the world worked, as they found the religious and mystical explanations l... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com

2012/03/10 – 2012 and My Search for the Holy Ghost

I have been baptized a total of five times. I don’t know if there is a Guinness Book of World Records regarding the most times a person has undergone baptism, but if there is, I’d like to throw my name up for consideration. I don’t recall every detail of each baptismal event, ... —darrylthomas.wordpress.com
