Day 97: Physical Ingredients of Happiness: Self Forgiveness Statements
"Do Not Put Those Unwanted Ingredients in Your Pie
Imagine yourself as a chef in an extremely well-stocked kitchen that contains every imaginable ingredient. Let us say that you have a clear idea of the culinary creation you desire, and you understand how to combine these easily accessible ingredients in order to fulfill your desire. And as you proceed, there are many ingredients that are not appropriate for your creation, so you do not utilize them, but you also feel no discomfort about their existence. You simply utilize the ingredients that will enhance your creation-and you leave the ingredients that are not appropriate for your creation out of your pie."
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that to have access to the ingredients which I combine together to fulfill my desire for a certain lifestyle, I must have money, and to have money I must have a job / a way of earning money, and that to have a job I must have some prerequisite skill / education / degree or live in a specific area of the world such as a highly developed country in which I have access to jobs, and that if I don't live in a developed country with access to education and jobs and for example am sold into sex slavery by my parents so they can make money to survive, or must work in a sweatshop more than 12 hours a day every day just to feed myself - then I DO NOT have access to this alleged 'well stocked kitchen' of ingredients with which to fulfill my desires to live a certain way
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the ingredients with which I make my lifestyle according to how I desire to live, did not come from some magical source of abundance, but came from the hands of other human beings which moved in accordance with the rules and agreements of the Capitalist Money System - and that most of the hands that moved to put together the ingredients which I have access to because I have money, are hands which belong to human beings existing in conditions where they are forced to find whatever way available to survive and do not have a choice about the life they live
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the message of Ask and It Is Given promotes the pursuit of happiness as total self interest wherein one focuses only on continuing to make money within acceptance of a starting point of 'how can I fulfill my desires for the kind of life I want to live' - with no regard for the consequences of the nature of the current economic system on earth being that of exploiting the earth and other beings in the name of profit for a few -- wherein this disregard for other beings is dressed up with the fluffy statement of: "there are many ingredients that are not appropriate for your creation, so you do not utilize them, but you also feel no discomfort about their existence. You simply utilize the ingredients that will enhance your creation-and you leave the ingredients that are not appropriate for your creation out of your pie"
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the message of Ask and It Is Given comes from the minds of Human Beings and consists of elaborate justifications of the acceptance of a world of abuse and neglect based on the idea that our only responsibility in this life is to 'fulfill our desires' - in spite of the obvious fact that as the Sole inhabitants of Earth, we are all Responsible for EVERYTHING that exists on Earth and we all know this and see this even when we pretend we don't -- a responsibility that through spirituality and new age messages we blatantly Deny because we do not want to let go of our desires and self interest and thus bullshit each other to no end with messages from 'higher beings' and 'divine beings' telling us it's okay to focus only on our own desires / self interest - when it is obvious that no 'higher divine being' would promote the dedication of one's life completely to self interest as half the world is in poverty with over 30,000 children starving to death each year
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to 'want my piece of the pie' as 'the fulfillment of my desires' because I accepted and allowed myself to, from a young age be brainwashed by media / movies / TV / parents / teachers / politicians to believe that my only responsibility in this world is to 'pursue happiness', within the consideration of only my own self preservation and desires -- within which I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that for capitalism to exist with a few abusing life for profit, the majority must be brainwashed to accept their abuse, and the only way to do that is to get everyone to become possessed by the hope / prospect / fantasy of fulfilling the desire to live a fantastical lifestyle -- which is constantly depicted to us in movies / tv / magazines where we see rich people 'living the good life' and become obsessed with forever escaping the fear of poverty into a heavenly existence of fun and luxury - with this starting point backed up more and more by spirituality / new age which constantly bombards the consumer with messages telling them how all they need to do is focus on their desires and not worry about anyone else because apparently that's 'how the universe works' -- which is obvious Bullshit that only actually benefits the few at the top of the Money Pyramid that abuse life and start Wars in the name of profit and self interest, through having a nice Brainwashed populace that has no practical understanding of how the system works and will, when faced with the abuse that exists in this world - immediately react with powerlessness and default to the desire to 'live the good life' and dedicate themselves to self interest because they think it's the only way the world can exist
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the ingredients necessary to have a dignified, comfortable, fun life must be made available to All Equally -- and that anything less than Total Equality of accessibility of support to live the best life possible, is deliberate abuse of life
