Healing Your Mind
If the parasite is like a disease in the mind, surely there must be a cure. The most important aspect of the disease is fear. The parasite creates fear and eats fear. It depends on fear for its survival. It creates fear in the human mind, and eats the emotions that arise from it in the body. Perhaps by now you are impressed with the skill and persistence of the parasite — both your own and the big one in the dream of the planet. It is a living dream, and lives in the minds of nearly all humans. Surely there must be a cure for this disease.
Could it be so simple that the cure for this disease of fear is its opposite — love? Yes, this is exactly what the Toltecs, and many other spiritual paths, teach. They know that each human comes into this world filled with love and acceptance — and no fear. The new humans must be infected with the parasite disease, in order to be like everyone else. The infection does not destroy or diminish the love that is the nature of every being. It simply overwhelms the nature of the humans, who then forget what they are.
The word love is one of the most distorted in the English language. It means so many different things, and brings up so many different emotions and memories in people. If you add all the differences created by other cultures and languages, the meaning is lost. To the Toltecs, love means “acceptance.”
The gift given by the Toltec master, ancient and modern, is to awaken the seeker to the truth of who he is as love, as life itself. The master takes the fish out of the water and wakes it from the parasite's dream. She says to her awakening apprentice, “Wake up! You have been suffering in a dream hell created by the parasite! Wake up! See life all around you and within you. You have been asleep in the midst of a wild celebration of life's abundance and magic. It is dancing in joy all around you. Wake up, and join the dance!”
No part of the parasite is capable of waking you up from its own dream. It only knows fear, and the antidote for its disease is love. You need a new resource, a spiritual warrior who sees the truth of what you are and can help you embrace it for yourself. Teachers from all paths of love and truth have acted as that source for their students and apprentices throughout the millennia, and it is wonderful if you can find a modern master to support you.
In this time of the sixth sun, a new way of dreaming is awakening. The teachings of ancient mystery schools such as the Toltec are coming alive and are accessible for everyone. It is possible to awaken a strong resource of love inside yourself. There is a powerful spiritual warrior in your heart. He has been put to sleep by the old dream and overwhelmed by the parasite, but he is there. Perhaps it is time to liberate him from his bonds.
