297 – Lifeline

There’s a reason some people stay with esoteric teachings, enter into the process of internal transformation while others fall away. This is hard and painful! It takes a long time. It can’t be accomplished without a lifeline.

  1. Thanks to the author. Listening this morning to a podcast was tough,to a some degree I realized strandedness while unaware of negativity. Coming back to a podcast later made me more gratefull for the message in it, since I am new and have no contact I thought how could I grow if there were others involved and helped along the way.
    Well it has been just that pointing out something about myself that was unbenkown and it hurts and it makes me feel so out of work but then it just brings light.
    Thank you

    • Those of us who attempt to apply these esoteric ideas must remember that there will be pain when the self-love is touched. We will often feel lost, alone and a failure. The truth is, when we’re properly applying the ideas, those very thoughts and feelings are proof that the ideas are working on us internally. Congratulations on being able to suffer consciously. It’s a mile marker. You are not alone.

Speak from your heart.

About Esoteric Talks

"No good deed goes unpunished."

The person most frequently credited as the originator of the phrase is playwright Clare Boothe Luce. Also credited have been playwright Noel Coward, writer Oscar Wilde, journalist Walter Winchell and the late Washington Post writer Bill Gold. The original idea is probably an ancient proverb.

Appearing cynical on the surface, a closer examination of human nature reveals the False Personality to be incredibly vengeful and petty due to its hubris.

Plato has Socrates say, "An unexamined life is not worth living." The reason no good deed goes unpunished is because most people are living lives not worth living. If you feel a sting, that probably means you are spending more time and energy examining the lives of others than you are examining your own.
