I am Miss Allgood.The speaker and host of Spirituality is Reality on Blogtalkradio.com. This is about real life. Life that is filled with power. This blog is about you and I. This is a tool for learning about who you REALLY are spiritually. Shall we learn together? Would you please join me?

We have only to look round us at the men whom we meet every day, or to listen to the conversations which are going on in the streets or the railway carriages. In nine cases out of ten we shall notice that the people are talking either about money, or amusements, or gossip.

Their one idea in life seems to be what they call “having a good time”, or, as they frequently put it in still coarser and more objectionable language, “having lots of fun” — as though this were the end and the object of the existence of a reasonable being, a living spark made in the Divine Image! I have been much struck with this — that the only idea which many people seem to connect with life is that of the sensuous pleasure of the moment — just amusement and nothing else.

– Excerpts from Annie Besant ‘s ‘Creating Character’

“Man’s destiny is self-made, not imposed upon him arbitrarily from without; his own powers, blinded by ignorance, spin and twist the cord that fetters him, as his own powers, directed by knowledge, liberate his limbs from the self-imposed shackles, and set him free from bondage.”

– Annie Besant  ’Riddle of Life’

“THERE IS A BLATANT DENIAL OF THE SPIRITUAL ESSENCE OF MAN. THERE IS A BELIEF IN RELIGIONS AND A “GOD” IN HEAVEN BUT THERE IS NO CONFIDENCE IN THE POWER OF MAN HIMSELF.”

– Miss Allgood The orator

“Dependence on things, on people, or on ideas breeds fear; dependence arises from ignorance, from the lack of self-knowledge, from inward poverty; fear causes uncertainty of mind-heart, preventing communication and understanding. Through self-awareness we begin to discover and so comprehend the cause of fear, not only the superficial but the deep casual and accumulative fears.”

– J krishnamurti

TRUST

Real trust is not what it is thought to be. Trust is not in people, places or things. Trust is in and of the self. This self is really the inward unseen self that is you. This trust is really self assurance. Trust is the self. Trust therefore does not exist outside of the self.   One cannot  look to another for validation or assurance. That is dependency which is what strengthens fear.  If one was confident in the self one would see that one is strong and that which he puts his trust in is weak. I tell you… if all men rested their assurance in the inward self all needs in all relationships would be met. There would be no fear and no dependencies. Then perhaps true love would be discovered. 

“THE BELIEF THAT ALL MEN HOLD IS THAT THEY CANNOT STAND ON THEIR OWN FEET. THEY BELIEVE THEY NEED THE SUPPORT OF THE EXTERNAL WORLD. THEY THINK THAT IF THE WORLD DOES NOT PROVIDE THEIR BODILY MATERIAL NEEDS THEY WILL PERISH. THIS IS THE REAL REASON WHY MEN DO NOT DEVELOP THE SPIRITUAL SELF. MEN ARE LAZY AND SECRETLY WANT TO DEPEND ON THE WORLD. THIS DEPENDENCY IS THE CAUSE OF FEAR AND LACK OF SELF CONFIDENCE. MEN WANT A WORLD THAT HOLDS THEM UP IN A FALSE GLORY SO THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO WORK ON THE INNER CHARACTER THAT IS THE REAL MAN.”

“REAL LIFE IS MENTAL. THE WORK OF MAN IS TO STRENGTHEN HIS MIND SO THAT HE CAN KNOW OF HIS SPIRITUAL SELF. REAL RELATIONSHIP IS MENTAL. LOVE IS MENTAL. THEREFORE GOD MUST BE MENTAL.”

– MISS ALLGOOD THE ORATOR

“REALITY IS NOT THE EXTERNAL WORLD OF WHAT IS SEEN. REAL DOES NOT MEAN TANGIBLE. THAT WHICH IS REAL IS OF THE REAL SPIRITUAL SELF. THIS SELF IS THE SPIRITUAL CENTER OF MAN. THE CENTER OF MAN IS HIS HEART. THIS IS UNSEEN. THE HEART OF A MAN IS REALLY THE INFUSION OF HIS HEART AND MIND. FOR THEY ARE ONE.”

– MISS ALLGOOD THE ORATOR

“Understand the True to be that which abides the Same, and is Eternal, but man is not ever, therefore not True, but man is a certain appearance, and Appearance is the highest Lie or Falsehood.”

– The Divine Pymander

There is an arrogance within the hearts of men. There is a belief that causes men to behold themselves in a false light. This false light is really a false perception that they are above others. No I do not mean as in race or class. (I’ll get into that later)

I speak of virtue. We think that we are good when we are really not. We think we are benevolent. We think we are compassionate. We think we are self less. This is the reason why man looks down on others because he thinks that he is virtuous. This is false because one cannot be virtuous if he looks down on others. The truth is that all men are equals. We all need each other. If a man is arrogant he perceives that he has no need of anyone or anything because arrogance causes men to be foolish, conceited and selfish.

Can you see this is what dwells in the hearts of men? Can you see that you look down on others because you exalt yourself?
