Forcing yourself to do chores you hate is an exercise in self mastery.
Self mastery is about recognizing
and overcoming your ordinary self.It ‘s very difficult but it’s the key tohappiness.
I shouldn’t be giving
this lesson as I still have not
by Henry Makow PhD
My ordinary self is a churlishcreature.
Synonyms for churlish include boorish, crude, selfish, base, curt, lazy, loutish and miserly. Add charmless.
I call him “Uncool Henry.”
My higher, real Self — “Cool Henry” — is engaged in a constant effort to civilize and control this brute and make him presentable.
Yes, we have two selves. The first is the lout who wants the world to make him feel good. This is the voice in our heads.
Our thoughts are mostly devoted to getting something: money, sex, power, recognition, love — all of which make us feel temporarily good.
Want to know how to make people like you? Make them feel good. Isn’t that what we want from other people?
Yet most of us are pretty inept when it comes to this. It requires effort, self mastery.
The key is recognizing that we are not the voice in our heads. That belongs to the monkey mind in the material world.
We must recognize and unmask this slippery rascal who easily assumes our identity.
How can we tackle what we can’t recognize?
For example, my ordinary self is Lazy.
Almost everything I do — from making my bed to taking out the garbage — is met with this refrain, “Do I have to??”
This is the brute talking. He must be whipped into line.
My brute is also very impatient. He tweets something and immediately wants “likes.”
Overcoming my impatience is self-mastery.
He is always in a hurry. Whatever he does, he feels there’s something more important he should be doing.
He is always stepping on my heels.
Today I was at a supermarket. The cashier made a mistake and didn’t charge me for a $20 slab of Gruyere cheese.
“Wow,” uncool Henry thought. “I could get this cheese for free.”
But cool Henry intervened.
“God is always watching, even if no one else sees. You are defining who you are. We live in a moral dimension.
You cannot feel good unless you are good.”
(This is the inventor of “Scruples” talking.)
So I pointed out the error to the cashier and paid for the cheese.
“Muchas gracias,” she said.
We’re all about other people making us feel good. Self mastery is doing it ourselves.
This made me feel good. Imagine if that poor cashier had to pay?
Could I have enjoyed that cheese knowing what I did?
Self mastery. Overcoming the lazy stupid lout within.
Civilization is founded on everyone obeying their higher Self. This is the essence of religion. You cannot have civilization without true religion. You cannot have true religion without God.
We live in a matrix created and controlled by Cabalist (Satanist) Jews.
“Portraying a falsehood as a truth is enough to make it so” is the bottom line of Cabalist Jewish cosmology, i.e. Satanism.
The lower self, the Uncool Henrys, live in this materialist construct.
The Cool Henrys live in the Real World which is spiritual and moral in nature.
As far as humans are concerned, God is a moral dimension in which spiritual ideals (truth, love, goodness, beauty, justice) are self-evident.
God is Reality. To be deprived of God’s presence is to be unconscious. Asleep.
Humanity has been colonized by a satanic cult, Cabalism.
This cult is doing everything in its power to destroy our connection to God, our higher cooler self.
Some believe the covid vaccines will achieve this purpose.
Let’s overcome them by first managing our lower selves. Let us awaken!
