words speak of perception from a timeless and changeless point of
conscious awareness of Authentic Self. They are paralleled by Pogo
Possum’s earthy swamp wisdom, hinting to look with honest
humility at who we are versus who we think we are. Bodhidharma exclaims
at what is revealed beyond the gates of ego-mind. It is the
intention of those Risen who are orchestrating this chapter to
stimulate the recognition and awakening of the feeling of the
reader’s Authentic Self and of Original Creator Source, and to
begin the correction of the ego-mind’s processes. Few
earth-embodied Authentic Selves are consciously aware of the
psychological component of their mind-body-spirit, also called the
psyche or soul. The vast majority of people are moving about in the
world with the ego-mind in the driving seat while they sleep in the
back, occasionally and briefly waking to look at the scenery passing
them by, but then quickly falling back into hibernation. The
ego-mind’s driving is compulsive, habitual, and
irrational—it’s mad as a hatter. Its ever-increasing
neuroticism is generally uncontrollable because of our ignorant
somnambulance. As a species, we have relegated it to our
underconscious, from where it secretly dictates most, if not all, of
our mental direction. In other words, it completely controls our world.

The ego-mind prefers to begin speaking with “I think” and “I believe.” It developed and ritualized the practices of “say please and thank you” and “I told you so.” Co-conspiring ego-minds are responsible for the inventions of money, business, politics, capitalism, communism and other forms of gambling, art criticism, journalism, bumper stickers, body dysmorphia, racism, homophobia, genderphobia, talk shows, so-called “reality” shows and other spectator sports, as well as organized religion, death camps, war, and the destruction of the rain forests. The Internet has been co-opted almost entirely by simulate selves. The collective ego-mind’s greatest desire is to achieve a Global Madison Avenue.
. . . . . . . . . . .When energy is shaped by fear it can manifest as many forms, including grief. The simulate self is the artificial intelligence that shapes the fear generated by the ego-mind. If the energy of grief cannot be transformed or re-manifested by Authentic Self into a lighter form of vibrational energy, its quality may increasingly deepen to an intensified, hypervigilant form. The ego-mind may then alter, intensify, crystallize, or re-express the grief as anger in all its various forms, including resentment, hate, rage, and other such forces that seek to destroy.

There is a kind of manual, our own “self-help book,” that resides within Authentic Self—the Risen will be guiding the reader to find it. To begin the process of recognition, the subject will be approached slowly and incrementally, and repeated in different ways to carefully impress the awakening mind of the slumbering Authentic Self. The ego-mind is an obsessively opinionated, decision-making psychological component of the earthly mind-body. All thought arises from its mentality, generated to manifest physical forms and experiences on the material plane. Simultaneously, it outwardly projects judgments about our mind-body’s perceptions and its environment onto the surface of our inner space, and onto the bodies and environments of others. This projection is the simulate self. When the feeling of Authentic Self has awakened, all thoughts can be observed, accepted, shelved, or dissolved from a consciously aware stance. But until then, the ego-mind is in complete control of any rising thoughts.
