The Dangers of Spiritual Arrogance and Ego
By Shannon Port
One of the greatest dangers that we face at this time is coming from a spiritual arrogance that is growing in many of those who feel that they are here to serve humanity while remaining deeply attached to ego judgements of self-righteousness, envy, pride and even hatred. We are being assured that the heart is not able to perform it's highest function in the presence of these lower energetic feelings. In fact, it is this very arrogance and superiority complex that has caused human beings to fall into the lower consciousness and remain in bondage in the past. All feelings are meant to be honored, but they must also be seen and transmuted according to their spiritual value and purpose in the individual. Most lower feelings rising to the surface are meant to awaken one to the dangers of the self-righteous path.
When we take a position of absolute knowing and judgment towards others, we are disabling our Inner Light from working through us. This does not mean that we are meant to look the other way or allow what is corrupt and harmful to humanity to remain in action; it means that we are encouraged to use the integrated power and wisdom of the divine heart and mind when we go into the world to work for positive change.
Many of the various spiritual communities on earth are warring with each other and are in denial of their actions. Some of these wars are happening in the collective subconscious plane and have a huge impact on what we see in the world. They often times create more suffering that what we traditionally think of as a war, because when we awaken some consciousness, we are held more accountable for our thoughts and actions; we are capable of doing great harm when we misuse our power. These communities pose as bringers of peace and light and proceed to work with the lower subterranean forces to judge each other while each claiming that they hold the one truth. These futile battles are ancient and they are what holds humanity in the lower density, cut of from the greater Understanding of the whole of creation. Any one that claims to hold the one truth is working to clear the delusions of the ego. These wars are a continuation of a long battle of intellect/ego that spans throughout many timelines. They are a parasite in creation and pour toxic energy into the auric field of our planet and the elemental kingdoms.
Understanding and the Sacred Vision of the Heart
In order to reach into the realms of clarity and vision of heart, we must find the truth within our consciousness that opens the path of inner union with our spirit. In this state, we are far more likely to do real and lasting good in our mission to serve each other. We first have to understand the interconnectedness to all life.
The ego is very sneaky in how it lures us into judgment. It tells us that we are in danger because of a perceived attack on our own intellect and viewpoint. These battles engage the lower mind and intellect because it is a dual instrument and is always at war within itself. Without the integration of heart energy and wisdom, the intellect will go on creating a split in reality. The real motive behind the judgment is a fear of not being good enough, of not knowing who we truly are and of our relationship with our fellow human beings. We feel that we must compete to be right. When we do so, we lose our power, even if it feels like we win the battle temporarily.
When we come into our greater Understanding, or come very close to making the deep inner connection with our own Divine Self, we change on many levels. One who has made this journey can recognize another who has merged into the consciousness of the whole. There is a power and yet there is a humility. There is a very profound change in the way we speak the Word. Our mission is to unite rather than divide and we are moved to see the truth in every being. All beings that have incarnated are capable of being seen as part of the whole. It is up to us to find the wholeness within ourself so that we can create it on the outside.
The Great Shift and Individual Shadow Integration
It is true that there are many things that have been hidden from humanity to create even further chaos and loss of our real power. We have been manipulated and misguided on countless occasions by our religious leaders, politicians, and public figures. We have been fooled about the earth's history and been blinded to the cosmos and the life power that fills the universe. All of these things are meant to be cleared up and revealed soon so that we can experience a greater participation in manifestation. One thing that must be understood, however, is that there is no way around clearing the lower aspects of the personality. If we are loaded with the shadow self now, the Shift is not going to make it all go away. We are each responsible for our shadow integration and that means learning how to access the heart.
There are millions upon millions of human beings who have taken the path of the lower forces, creating contraction, bondage and suffering on earth. We are not being asked to mingle with the dark or act foolishly in our discernment of what is healthy in our life. We are, however, asked to awaken the wisdom, which very few humans have come into contact with at this time.
Taking a Deep Look Within our Being
All spiritual work and healing in the world must be balanced with time spent in deep contemplation and reflection on ourself. The inner and outer are equal in their importance and one will mirror the other. A person shows their true level of consciousness by their words and actions as well as by the thoughts that remain hidden in the mind. Nothing is really hidden; the auric field records every thought, feeling and instinctual impulse and colors us with the frequency of those records. We create our electro-magnetic field with our words and feelings and that in turn creates our reality. This is one of the high teachings that has been greatly misunderstood in the absence of wisdom. Our reality can be manipulated only when we give our power away through our focus and misguided intention.
We have to take full responsibility for our personal healing if we are to make progress in helping others. Once we help ourself, we can help others to help themselves through our compassion and experience. The real work is always done by the soul and spirit of each person. Some have made more progress than others, but it makes no difference to one who has truly awakened. The only work of the awakened soul is to give of the infinite well of Divine Love to humanity; to become a link in the great chain of wisdom and light.
Every Soul that Heals Awakens a Unique Gift for Humanity
Each person who receives the Understanding in his or her unique frequency gives a huge gift to the planet and all beings. The Understanding is the inner knowing of Oneness and cannot even be grasped until it is experienced on several levels. It brings such a joy and clarity that is beyond words. It changes us to know that what we see in the world is covered in a veil of ignorance. Once we know, we cannot help but to busy ourself with the work of loving and healing in whatever way we are called to it.
The important thing at this time as we approach an even greater shift in consciousness on earth, is to know thyself and know where the blocks are being manipulated within us by the lower forces. They love for us to remain stuck in the ego battles within and without because it ties us down and limits our ability to love. If we can see it, we can transmute it with the help of the Divine Mother, who purifies our heart and emotional body with her currents of Divine Wisdom.
We need not waste another minute battling from limitation when we are being offered the power of the Infinite. It is up to us to search for this truth within our heart, to find the path to love and activate the Force of all forces; the only power that can truly save the world! May all spiritual arrogance and ego be laid to rest so that we can use the power that has been given to us by our Source to create a magnificent world that honors the only truth - that we are One - scattered into billions of pieces so that we can remember the dance of life.
With Love & Healing for All Beings,
