A few days ago I posted a chart titled “Synopsis of New Age Deceptions” based on Mark Passio’s Bullshit points plus more that were added by evolveconsciousness.org, where you will be able to find more of Mark’s work. The Chart was in JPG format and very difficult to read so I have re-typed it out in readable format. It’s interesting because many of his points have been part of my life for many years. He’s also sometimes accused of being “venomous”, or “viciously” attacking the New Agers, as I have been lately, but as he always responds: “Truth can fucking hurt, get over it”.
NEW AGE DECEPTION # 1 – AVOID NEGATIVITY
Ignore the negative, Bad, Evil, Horror, and Darkness, etc., looking at or focusing on the negative gives it energy and power to exist. Feeding it your energy of attention and focus will create more negative. Ignorance is the solution. Tied to #2, #5 and #11.
I take exception to this rule from a healing/clinical standpoint. When we are in pain or focused on fear of being sick, we Do give it power, so anything that is tied to our personal healthy and even mental health is the opposite. I think what Mark is referring to is our environment, people around us, the current situation in the world.
TRUTH CORRECTION #1
Face it to protect and prevent your participation in creating it. Ignoring it is avoiding the discomfort of being made, angry, hurt, etc. It removes false blissful ignorance, feeling-good false perceptions. We have to know Evil to realize and create good, instead of being a tool for evil. Good is the primal will of God, Higher Will, Higher Self, Natural Law, Truth, Love etc.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #2 –NEVER GET ANGRY
It’s a “negative” emotion, it creates “dis-ease” and illness in you, your negative reaction fuels the negative energy in the World, etc.
TRUTH CORRECTION #2—ANGER CAN CHANNEL INTO WISDOM OF RIGHT-ACTION
Physical aggressive anger is not helpful, but getting mad at the bullshit is good, that’s your compass telling you shit isn’t right and is a fuel to get into Right Action to change things. Pay attention to the world and get angry when you see evil being continually engaged in by ignorant people, or yourself.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #3—WE ARE ALL ONE, EVERYTHING IS “GOOD”
Right/wrong is dualistic and invalid. You’re a divider, against “unity”, you’re a “chooser”. All is fine and right, as it should be, you are perfect as you are, things will come when you are ready, don’t actively seek truth or try to change, no need to better yourself, to heal. The Universe will provide you with everything. Go with the flow and let it all unfold, what is happening is meant to happen. Moral relativism. Tied to #4.
TRUTH CORRECTION #3 — RIGHT AND WRONG EXIST. YOUR ACTIONS ARE PART OF IT.
Conscience is the development of morality and care, knowing the objective difference between right/wrong. It is common sense to live in Truth and Morality. So as long as you engage in wrongdoings against other innocent sentient animate beings, you are in violation of morality, Natural Law, Higher Self, Higher Will etc. Rejection of this Truth is the real duality, internal contradiction and conflict.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #4 — YOU CAN NEVER REALLY KNOW (SOLIPSISM)
Only you yourself and your mind can be verified, only your perceptions can be trusted. 1) no truth 2)truth can’t be known 3)truth can’t be expressed.
TRUTH CORRECTION #4 – ALIGN PERCEPTIONS WITH TRUTH
Reality exists; truth can be discovered and known. Solipsism is spiritual infancy, it is to be unbegun, uninitiated, UN-awakened, un-raised, in the tomb/grave and dead to the spiritual journey on the path towards truth. Good “intentions” are not enough.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #5—ACCEPT, DON’T RESIST. WHAT YOU RESIST PERSISTS.
Resistance feeds it, it’s powerless without your reaction. Keep calm, don’t take action on yourself or in the world, don’t face your participation in wrongdoings, don’t confront others on their bullshit, don’t call them out, don’t use the force of action, speech, writing to speak truth into the world. Don’t resist evil, escapism/avoidance in meditation, etc.,to have inner-states of “feeling good” to not face your life or the wrongs you or others participate in. Avoid wisdom of Right-Action to prevent evolution in consciousness. Tied to #1, #2, #10, #11.
TRUTH CORRECTION #5—WHAT ‘IS’ HAPPENING (TRUTH LEVEL 1)
Accept all the truth/lies, beauty/horror, good/bad, as the current condition that is manifested by us collectively and run you over in the end. Unite and embody the Sacred Feminine non-aggression, non-violence, do no harm and the Sacred masculine Right-Action, Truth is not about your freedom and ignoring the freedom of other innocent sentient animate beings that did you no harm. Halfway, partial alignment with Truth won’t cut it. Truth is one way, go all the way! Meditation is a tool for left-brain imbalance, not to “feel-good” about yourself. Reflection and contemplation is balanced consciousness.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #6 – THE LAW OF ATTRACTION (SERVICE TO EGO-SELF)
Service to self, is what you want/desire in life to be happy by getting things, wealth, house, career, etc. Part of the pleasure-trap and other bullshit based denial of facing your participation in wrong-doings and evil. Tied to #11.
TRUTH CORRECTION #6—EXPRESSIONS OF CONSCIOUSNESS WITH TRUTH LEVEL 1 AND 2
Unite thoughts, emotions, and actions together, and with Truth Level 2 (Right, good, natural law). Not based in negative ego identification with falsity and sensations. Service to truth, not service to “feeling good” about yourself while ignoring how you participate in evil.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #7—FALSE FORGIVENESS
Turning the other cheek, letting evil and wrongdoings continue, not standing up against it, not saying the powerful lost world “NO”, lack of Sacred Masculine embodiment of Right-Action. Forgive others for your own “inner-peace”, “feel good” comfort, no dis-ease. Tied to #2, #11, #5.
TRUTH CORRECTION #7—ADMIT WRONGDOINGS AND REPENT
Admit that you part of. Not excusing the bullshit and wrong-doings to people or you engage in, face the mirror, don’t cooperate with evil, stand in the Truth, Care for Truth. True forgiveness is apologizing to others or yourself for the wrong you have committed. Repent for your wrongdoings. Reconciliation begins, true healing.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #8—FEAR, CHAOS, FEAR EVIL (FEAR TRUTH)
Government needs to protect me from bad people. Without state nanny surrogate mother/father, all would fall apart. Replacement father/mother keeps order and prevents me from being murdered. All the evil and chaos in the world is proof we need protection from other people. I am not doing wrong or evil, it’s other people. Tied to #9, #10.
TRUTH CORRECTION #8—EVIL/CHAOS MANIFESTS AS A TEACHER
Living off the path, not walking The Way, we create falsity and do evil by rejecting Truth and good. Isis and Eris, Ma’at and Isfet, Right and Left hand of God are teachers. Law of correspondence reciprocates our refusal to align with Truth, Love, Good. Until we face it and change our ways, chaos will continue to occur. We choose among the various possibilities. Fearing truth creates Chaos, negatives and repercussions/consequences of our actions because we don’t want to align with Truth level 2. People fear real Freedom of going all the way with Truth.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #9—ENLIGHTENMENT IS ONLY ABOUT CHANGING YOURSELF
Only changing beliefs in heart and mind just create delusional fantasies, worldviews, self-images and self-concepts about yourself to “feel good”. Escapism to inner “feel good” states. Tied to #1, #2, #4, #5, #6, #11
TRUTH CORRECTION #9—RESPONSIBILITY TO TRUTH AND RIGHT ACTION
True CARE for truth, embrace Truth. Truth hurts, is harsh, is uncomfortable and is brought to you to have your emotional compass become active, face yourself. Anger, shame, guilt are teachers! You’re not facing the Truth. Evolve your heartcenter, care, conscience, morality, consciousness. Seek, discover, embrace and care for Truth, embody, become and live Truth, Love, Natural Law, Higher Self, etc., then you won’t have to pretend that you actually are living it. Tied to #10
NEW AGE DECEPTION #10—TRUTH DOESN’T NEED TO BE DEFENDED
Don’t call people out on their bullshit. Don’t rock the boat or make waves. Don’t call out “truthers” because this is “disunity”, it only creates “problems”. Stay in “false Unity” to keep friends, to be “popular”, to remain “liked”. We’re all in this together, so shut your mouth if you don’t have anything nice and complimenting to say. People who don’t think they follow New Age Bullshit are actually following it, they only validate calling Bullshit out when it’s a non-truther, because they are not “popular” so it’s ok. But don’t call out “leaders”, don’t call out the hand that feeds your various truths, we have to remain attached to a cult of personality, a mental-emotional guru-cult mindset.
TRUTH CORRECTION #10—WE ARE THE VOICES AND VEHICLES FOR TRUTH TO BE EXPRESSED
Destroy, shatter, disintegrate, dissolve, disassemble the lies, bullshit, deceptions, manipulations, mind control and illusions people buy into. People are attached to lies and take an assault on the bullshit they are attached to as an assault on them. This is negative ego attachment. Wake up. Face yourself in the mirror. Let go of attachment to these lies. Do the hard work. Great work yourself. Don’t expect someone else (guru, cult of personality, leader, popular speaker) or something else (meditation, plant-substances) to do it for you. You have to do the work. Truth unites, lies divide. People aren’t on the same level of consciousness in alignment with Truth because we let people get away with lies in order to falsely “unite” and make “friends”, uniting on some things, but not daring to tell people they are still attached to lies and wrongdoings. The people who don’t want to face themselves are the problem, even the so-called “leaders” not the people who out bullshit even when it’s a “popular truther”. Truth is one way, go all the way. CARE for Truth reigns above all. Then develop the courage and will to speak it and defend it. That is the only way we can create a better world for all sentient animate beings.
NEW AGE DECEPTION # 11—PLEASURE TRAP FOCUS FROM 5 SENSE ILLUSION
Low based consciousness focus on ego-self feelings of pleasure, carnal desires. All about “feeling good”, gratification, amusement, enjoyment, satisfaction, ease, comfort, convenience. Continued participation in illusions because it “feels good” it can’t be wrong. Anything that “feels good” is desired and maintained. Attachment to that feeling. Avoid letting go of that dependence, whether it’s alcohol, taste-buds, endorphin rushes, TV, drugs plant substances or meditation. Have to “feel good”, have to escape my stressful life rather than work to change it by changing the world we live in through Right-Action. Engaging in wrong doings on animals because animal flesh, milk or cheese tastes “too good”. All low base consciousness modalities of living based in attachment to illusions of the senses and pleasure. Avoiding the real, hard, Great, Inner-shadow-work because it involves too much effort, time, energy, dedication, determination and persistence which is not easy, comfortable, pleasurable etc. Just to be happy, enjoy your life, have fun etc. No serious reflection and contemplation on your way of living, being and behaviour in life, what your actions are responsible for.
TRUTH CORRECTION #11—FACE THE REALITY OF HARD, HARSH, UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS
Stop avoiding the Truth that removes your “feel good” comfort, convenience and ease of living. It’s very easy to continue engaging in behaviour that is driven by your lower base consciousness of the 5 sense illusion pleasure-trap. The taste buds that drive you, the intoxicants that produce sensations in your body to escape the dullness of the life you have created, the escapism from your current life choices that brings you stress and discomfort. It’s easy and convenient to simply continue living the same way as you already have been. There is no effort required in not changing. It takes real hard work to face the Truth and align with it to change your behaviors. It’s part of the Great Work. Embodying, becoming and living those values you give lip-service to saying you want to uphold is a hard and long job. It’s easier to pretend we are already there, and go on living as we currently are not facing our wrongdoings and participation in evil actions. The most difficult Truth I have encountered from people who think they “get it” is the participation in enslavement, exploitation, harm, suffering, violence or murder of innocent sentient animate beings. To face the fact is to face the deep trauma that our actions and behaviors are responsible for creating. The conscious mind does not want to deal with that trauma of murder and enslavement.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #12—THOUGHTS ARE “BAD”. THE MIND IS “BAD”.
The “heart, emotions, feelings know best, follow your “heart” , don’t follow the mind or thoughts, it is corrupted, it isn’t in touch with source, etc. Use meditation to clear the mind of thoughts, you think too much, you have 50,000 thoughts per day, you aren’t “being” in the “now”, only now exists, stop your thoughts, they are not good for you. Other variations built from this are: Logic is flawed. Language is flawed. I live from a “pure heart”, use my non-thought, “pure heart” connection to communicate in higher dimensions beyond the limitations of your faulty language, that’s why you can’t understand me when I talk. I’m just so evolved and beyond your primitive communication means. Language, logic, etc, is the problem, not me! Tied to #18.
TRUTH CORRECTION #12—UNITE HEART MIND. UNITE BODY-MIND-SPIRIT
Stop being dual. Stop being in internal opposition with yourself trying to negate the value of the mind and thoughts. The mind and consciousness are the closest you get to spirit in this vessel. They are the essence and emanation point for consciousness and is the basis for the 3 expressions of consciousness. Align your thoughts, emotions and actions in unison together and harmonize them with Truth Levels 1 and 2. Follow the heart and mind united in balance, not one alone. Ignoring the value of one over the other is being divided from within, the real bad kind of duality, non-united, non-harmonized, imbalanced. You live in internal opposition and conflict until you reconcile this duality in yourself. You aren’t learning about the various tools at your availability, developing their use like a muscle, and use them effectively. This is like blaming the tool, the hammer, for not being able to screw in a screw. It’s the same with ego killing belief of #18, blaming the tool instead of yourself for failure to learn how to use it properly in its area of intended use. Tools have specific uses, they can’t always be used blindly on all scales. Pure heart, Empty-Head, is how many people live. Not following the Truth, but their deceitful attachment to feelings and thoughts that are still under the conditioning of falsity. Imbalance of heart and mind is internal opposition.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #13 – THE NEW AGE GOLD ERA IS COMING!
Don’t need to make anything happen. Just focus on yourself and your life. Live your life normally, you don’t have to make anything happen. The change on Earth will come, it’s not up to us, things will happen according to the universe providing it to you, we just need to believe and have faith. It’s part of the plan. Lack of free will and abdicating everything to false determinism. No action, pacifism, ignore truth, just focus on being happy, feel-good, enjoy life, play play play. Me me me. My happiness, my freedom, my “truth”. 2012 hype was focused on this. We are all going to the 5th dimension soon! On this date or that date, the dates keep moving because we averted the disaster, good thing we were meditating and changed the course of history! We saved the planet! Tied to #3, #4, #6, #11, #16.
TRUTH CORRECTION #13—COLLECTIVELY CO-CREATE OUR CONDITIONS
The only way things will change for us, and a real New Golden Age will be created on this planet is if we get off our lazy cowardly assess and make it happen. Jesus, god, aliens, the Galactic Federation, St. Germain, Ascended Masters etc., none of those fantasies are going to make it happen for you. I’m not saying they don’t necessarily exist, but they are not going to fix you up and do the work for you. You have to do the hard work yourself. This is part of escapism and abdicating owning up to personal responsibility to engage in right action, just like the “feel good” dependence from #11. Lack of faith and value in themselves to change. Lack of imagination to get out of learned helplessness passivity. Not wanting to change for the better due to dead-imagination belief that the dependence isn’t a set-back in their lives, continue to “feel good” about their attachments.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #14—MY TRUTH IS AS VALID AS YOUR TRUTH
There is a different form of #4, Solipsism. When someone is wrong, they can negate the truth by saying it doesn’t exist, can’t be known or can’t be communicated. Another variant is not to negate it directly, but to continue to hold onto their wrong belief by saying their “truth” (belief) is as valid as Your truth. This is a person that uses belief to guide them in their life as any belief is valid as long as someone believes it. This can also include a “false balance” conception, believing that “Truth is in the middle” of the two points/positions being held, such as thinking the news presents a “balanced” perspective because they allegedly give “both sides” of the story, when in most cases one is completely false.
TRUTH CORRECTION #14—TRUTH IS NOT CONTRADICTORY.
Beliefs are not verified and can be wrong because accurate Truth has not been verified to build a solid foundational basis, instead a falsity is accepted as truth and they think their belief is a “truth”, you can have different perspectives, attributes, particulars of one aspect of Truth, say looking at a baseball. Because one person sees the threading going up from their point of view, the other person sees it going down, they think their view is right and the other is wrong, but if they share their vantage point, change their view point and connect the dots, then they can see that it actually goes up or down depending on which angle you are looking at it. Connecting the top right of one view with the top left of the other will join the two pieces together like a puzzle. The truth was always one thing., but you didn’t have enough pieces of it, either 5%, 10%, 50% but you were missing an aspect of it. There are never versioins of Truth, but you can describe parts of it, which different in characteristics, properties, attributes, aspects, qualities, etc.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #15—DON’T JUDGE, JUDGING IS BAD. JUDGING IS WRONG.
Judgements create “dis-ease” and illness, you can’t judge others because you haven’t walked in their shoes, we are all on a journey, you’re mean, you’re not kind etc. Different variations are: don’t be critical, don’t compare. Tied to #2, #11. Avoiding the discomfort and non-ease of having to face hard, harsh, uncomfortable Truth. New Agers are convinced not to judge because judging is discernment of reality where you see truth from lies, right from wrong, good from bad, and when you see the bad and judge it as so, well that creates negative feelings inside of you, and these negative feelings will create illness, and you will kill yourself in the end. So don’t judge. Tied to #4, #14, solipsism. The only judgements that are based on superficial evaluations of worth and value such as a car, house, career, fashion, etc.
TRUTH CORRECTION #15—Judgement is a valuable e and necessary Tool of Life. I wrote a whole article on this one. Also the dualistic conceptual framework articles talk about this specifically. Judgements are discernment, distinction, differentiation, assessment, evaluation, analysis, critical thinking, comparison etc., about the variability, diversity and multiplicity of the various aspects of reality, universe, truth, etc. Without judgement, everything would be just one thing indistinguishable from another thing, and there would be no you and me, no reality, just one being entropic soup of symmetric order where nothing unique exists. Comparison is a necessary tool. See other life examples of Truth. Good, morality, etc., compare yourself to them and learn how you can improve your way of living to embody more aspects of Truth, Natural Law, etc. The “don’t compare yourself to others” is a huge deception.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #16 –SPIRITUAL MASTERS, GURUS, ENTITIES ETC.
Spiritual masters, gurus, ascended masters, channeled entities, aliens, etc., are more “evolved”and know more than us, we should follow their advice and teachings. Only their “true” teachings will allow us to transcend this material existence towards other dimensions of living. We are going to 5D living getting out of this boring planet, we don’t need to do anything but wait. We will be beings of light. Only those who prepare themselves will be going. Follow this or that teaching. We are tired of living on this Earth, it is corrupt, we just want to leave and they are our only salvation! We don’t want to fix things ourselves. Tied to #3, #11, #13.
TRUTH CORRECTION #16—SEEK TRUTH, USE CRITICAL THINKING TO GROUND YOURSELF IN REALITY
This is a cult mentality devoid of your own ability to discern, lack of critical thinking, lack of self-worth, lack of recognizing your own value and power to change things yourself. Immersed in belief and learned helplessness of not being able to imagine another way of fixing things. Think for yourself, feel for yourself and care for yourself. Heal yourself out of this mind control mental-cult mindset of dependence to feel special and avoiding the personal responsibility to engage in seeking real Truth to change things yourself. More escapism from reality. Most of those teachings are bullshit, but they have Truth sprinkled into them so the undiscerning, uncritical, unthinking gullible fools lap it up as a package deal and believe in the wonder of magical fantasy of “evolving” beyond the flesh without actually doing anything real. Chasing escapism techniques to immerse yourself in other dimensional realms temporarily, meditation, plant-consciousness, not being satisfied with the reality of life you are living here in the real world.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #17—ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE. LOVE CONQUERS ALL.
Just “love” everyone and everything with get fixed. Unconditional love. Love everyone no matter what, we are all “ONE”. Only “love” will bring peace. Send “love and light”, that’s the solution. Send your thoughts of love/light, you don’t need truth. You don’t need to learn, you don’t need to discern. All you need is to “feel-good” about yourself and others. Just “feel” your way with this belief that you are in “unconditional love”and everything will be ok. The universe will provide everything you need.
TRUTH CORRECTION #17—UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS A PIPE DREAM.
Unconditional “love”is not part of the purpose for us to have towards everyone and everything. Unconditional love is madness of “loving”everyone no matter what harm they do to you, false forgiveness, avoidance of personal responsibility of being held accountable for actions. Unconditional love is needed for those who aren’t mature yet and need us to survive until they mature to a point where they can survive on their own without our daily care for their survival, like children. But mature adults need to be held accountable. Unconditional love/care is in the realm of God, ONE, ALL, etc., it just is. We are not that fullness of everything. This belief is not a requirement of enlightenment. This is unconditional confusion.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #18—KILL THE EGO
Ignore past history and future possibilities. Don’t look at the past or towards the future, just be in the here and now. Thinking about the past or future will only take you away from the present moment awareness. Immerse yourself in the present and observe it. Take it all in. Don’t divert your attention towards what already happened or what hasn’t happened yet.
TRUTH CORRECTION #18—LEARN FROM THE PAST, IMAGINE THE FUTURE, LIVE AND ACT NOW
We must learn from the past in order to learn the root cause for how and why we arrived at this current condition, and not repeat the same mistakes over and over again. This is how history repeats, when we avoid or are ignorant of learning about the past and keep doing the same shit over and over. Using imagination to envision a better future is necessary to create a better future. Take that knowledge of where it came from, the possibilities of where we want to go and use it to create better conditions for ourselves, every other sentient animate being, and the planet itself. Live and create in the present.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #19 –WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE IS ONLY A REFLECTION OF YOURSELF
When you see something you don’t like, when you “judge” when you are mad at someone’s bullshit, when you call out the negative and bullshit in others, it’s only them acting as a mirror for those things in yourself you don’t like or don’t want to face etc.
TRUTH CORRECTION #19—RECOGNIZE THE WRONGS, DON’T DISMISS THEM
These are all dismissive tactics, denials, avoidance, sidestepping behavioural expressions that people act out in the world by trying to spin and deflect the issue back on the one who can see what they are actually doing or what is actually happening in the world.
NEW AGE DECEPTION #20—EVIL IS NOT NECESSARY. GOOD DOESN’T EXIST WITHOUT EVIL.
We must have evil, bad and wrongdoings in the world, otherwise there would be no good, since they are both part of Creation one doesn’t exist without the other. This belief is one of the longest lasting lies since the beginning of our attempt to make sense of Evil.
TRUTH CORRECTION #20—THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NESCIENCE AND IGNORANCE CAN BE DEMONSTRATED THROUGH THE CONCEPT OF EVIL EXISTING OR NOT.
In a reality where there would be an innocence of no evil existing, it would be an experience of nescience of evil because there would be no evil action done by anyone and therefore no evil around for them to know that evil exists and therefore evil would not exist because evil would not be manifested through actions and behaviors to recognize that evil exists. In our reality we are currently manifesting our consciousness in forms of wrongdoings and evil that permeates all around us, yet people choose to be willfully ignorant of this evil.
This confusion based on lack of proper contemplation and reflection on how the spectrum, continuum, scale, degrees or grades of Good function. Truth is what is, Falsity is the lack of Truth. Good is what is, Evil is the lack of Good. Truth, love, Good, Right, Morality, Natural Law, True Self, Higher Self, Higher Will, etc. , is one way. God is not dualistic. The absence of what is creates the opposite polarity which allows for a comparative assessment to distinguish between various things. The only reason there is Evil is because we create it. The reason there is evil is because we don’t align ourselves with Truth, Love, Good, Right etc. If we refuse to create evil and let go of the lies and deceptions, then our consciousness will rise, it will be raised.
Knowledge is not The sure-fire way to raise consciousness. Truth level 2 which is Truth, Love, Good, Right is how we can really raise our consciousness and really create a better world. Thinking Evil is necessary is a failure of understanding how these polarities operate.
