In this section we will talk about a topic that is little known to most spiritual seekers. There are several reasons for this:
- People’s selves and the false teachers of this world will do anything to prevent you from understanding what dualistic dramas are and how they are used to abort your growth and your expression of higher awareness.
- Many people are not at a level of the spiritual path where they need to be concerned about dualistic dramas, as they first need to become aware of the selves’ illusions and games.
Why is it so important for some people to consider dualistic dramas? Let us talk about two stages of spiritual growth. The first one is what we might call the general spiritual path where people are working on raising their own consciousness. The second stage is what we can call the path to Christhood or the path where you discover the underlying oneness of all life. The first stage is between the 48th and 96th levels of consciousness and the second stage is above the 96th level.
During the first stage people tend to be focused on themselves, and they are often as little children who are innocently exploring what spiritual growth means and what is available in the marketplace. They are seeking to raise their own consciousness with little concern for other people or the world.
Many people are reading books or following gurus that promote a form of spirituality based on the concept of an outer path, where it seems they can reach a spiritual state of consciousness without confronting the beam – the selves – in their own eyes. It is an automatic path to salvation. This path can still take people to the point where they are ready to step on to the higher levels of the path.
The second stage is where people become more serious and dedicated and they realize they need to work hard and they need to change themselves. They also become more concerned about perspectives that reach beyond themselves. They often reawaken to what brought them to this planet, namely a sincere desire to improve conditions and help raise the collective consciousness.
The high potential is that people can indeed manifest personal Christhood and make a major contribution to raising the collective consciousness. The risk is that they can become focused on changing other people and begin to feel this justifies using means that do not respect the absoluteness of free will. This is a more critical stage of the path, and that is why you need to become aware of the epic dramas.
The false teachers, the manipulators, have defined the dualistic dramas as their ultimate weapon for diverting your path to Christhood into the false path of seeking to force people to be saved according to your vision, or rather the illusion created by the serpentine mind.
This is not said in order to induce fear because for those who have risen to the path of Christhood, fear is no longer the dominant emotion. Nevertheless, there is a need for a sense of profound realism of what is at stake here.
The work of the ascended masters can only be fulfilled through people in embodiment. It can never be fulfilled by people who are still affected by the force-based mindset of the manipulators. It is essential for you to come to see through this force-based mindset and see its unreality.
What is a dualistic drama?
Consider what was said in the previous section about the relationship between dualistic games and dualistic dramas:
“A dualistic game is directly related to you and what you do as an individual whereas a dualistic drama relates to what you do in relation to some greater – seemingly impersonal – consideration. We might say that a game is what people normally see as selvestistical behavior, namely what revolves around your personal desires or needs. A drama goes beyond your personal level and relates to a greater cause. A drama is something you pretend to do for others or even for God, yet it is simply a camouflaged offspring of the selves. A game is often obvious selfish behavior whereas a drama is selfish behavior camouflaged as unselfish behavior. A game is what you do in relation to other people who are also focused on themselves. A drama is what you do in relation to a greater cause, even to God or to other people who are also pretending that their selfish behavior serves an altruistic cause.”
Truly, this is the essential point. Consider this statement of Jesus:
But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. (Matthew 5:38-40)
Does this not imply a total and uncompromising respect for free will? Does it not imply that the forces of anti-christ have always sought to drag you into a struggle against them by violating your free will?
They will attack you again and again and their sole purpose is to get you to react to them and to engage in a struggle against them. They know that when you resist evil, you will never manifest Christhood, for all of your energies and attention will be fed into the downward spiral of the struggle they have generated on this planet.
Just look at how many people around the world, such as in the Middle East, who are feeding their energies into struggling against other groups of people. They are feeding the manipulators and enabling them to continue an existence. By using their free will to engage in this struggle, they also prevent the judgment of the manipulators so that the ascended masters cannot remove them from this planet.
It is a basic fact that by resisting evil you only reinforce evil. How do you avoid resisting evil? By always turning the other cheek with complete non-attachment. How can you turn the other cheek? Only by having an uncompromising respect for free will—your own and that of others.
When the manipulators attack you, you respect that God has given them free will. On planet earth, there is nothing that prevents them from attacking you physically. Yet you also realize the truth behind the words:
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:27-29)
The manipulators do have the power to kill your physical body, but they have no power to kill your conscious self. This truly means that they have no power to influence how you choose to react to them. You have – and must claim in order to walk the path of Christhood – complete mastery over your mind.
“He who can destroy the soul” is actually yourself, the conscious self. You can drag it into your own private hell of struggling against something in this world until the friction gets hotter and hotter and ends up burning the soul (the four levels of the mind) and its structure.
The strategy of the manipulators
There are two groups of manipulators on earth. There are those who will directly and openly violate you and seek to drag you into opposing them. The people who are ready to start the path of Christhood have risen to a level of consciousness where it is difficult for the manipulators to drag them into this direct struggle.
The second group of manipulators have come up with the dualistic dramas as a way to drag you into the struggle while thinking you are working for a higher cause. The dualistic dramas will imply that a certain cause is so important that it justifies measures that force the will of others. It might not be overt physical force, but it is definitely a force, often a psychic force. Any use of force is a violation of the Law of Free Will, which is the most important law for this universe.
The Garden of Eden
In the distant past, a critical mass of the lifestreams evolving on earth did choose to go into separation and this is what allowed manipulators to start embodying here. Even then, the less experienced lifestreams were placed in a protected environment. The story of the Garden of Eden is a highly incomplete illustration of such an environment.
The “God” in the garden was a symbol for an ascended master and the serpent was a symbol for the manipulators. The critical question was whether the newer lifestreams would keep their connection to the teacher or whether they would let the manipulators deceive them into breaking that connection. Most people who are in embodiment today have broken their conscious connection to their spiritual teachers. That is why they are so easily deceived into either opposing the manipulators or engaging in the dualistic dramas.
The path to Christhood is the stage of growth where you need to reestablish your full connection to your spiritual teacher by coming to see through and rise above all of the temptations that the manipulators can throw at you. This includes the dualistic dramas, namely their attempt to abort your Christhood by seeking to force the free will of others for a greater cause. There is no greater cause on planet earth than allowing free will to outplay itself so that people may finally have had enough and cry out for more.
The manipulators have created an elaborate set of dualistic dramas in their attempt to get the more mature spiritual seekers to engage in a scheme to force people to be saved for some greater good. This will abort your Christhood and only serve to further the cause of the manipulators.
If you find this confusing or overwhelming, this will be explained in more depth and from different angles. It truly is a difficult point to grasp, but once you grasp it, you will have taken a decisive step on the path of Christhood.
