In this podcast Bernhard and Laura propose the question “Do you really want to awaken or just be comfortable in your dream state?” and how “enlightenment is a destructive process” as it may introduce us to difficult truths; and how certain components of character are necessary to have in order to go through this process.
In the 4th episode of the Cosmic Matrix podcast, Laura and Bernhard discuss spiritual integrity and what it means to engage in inner and outer work. Many well-meaning “truth seekers” are overly focused on the external world while lacking a balance of sincere inner work and embodiment. On the other side of the coin, there is the New Age trap of too much “self-work” resulting in narcissistic tendencies, whereas people are overly focused on their internal experience without understanding the world around them, which often results in solipsism.
Relationships take on a whole new level for anyone who has taken the “red pill”, i.e. anyone who is sincerely engaged in seeking truth, self-work and cultural/social de-programming in order to transcend the Matrix on The Path Towards Awakening.
Bernhard Guenther at Regeneration 2017:
The Matrix Control System & The Path Towards Awakening (1hr 27min)
This film sheds light into the nature of love, relationships, the “New Age” movement, reality-creation, quantum physics, objectivity vs. subjectivity and how it all relates to the topics of “conspiracy theories”, psychopathy, and the importance of self-work.
Intimate relationships can act like a fast-track in spiritual development, like a catalyst, because much of our unconscious shadow can easily hide as long as we avoid relationships or endlessly look for the “perfect partner” who will never appear.
We’re half way through 2012. Many prophecies have hinted at this time as The Shift of the Ages and The Time of Transition. If you take a look at the shelves of any spiritual/new age bookstore, you’ll see dozens of books with 2012 in the title. It certainly has become a good marketing bit.
A topic that has been coming up recently in a conversation with some friends is the idea of “Wanderers” in relation to esoteric work, the awakening process and the Time of Transition we are in. It is something that has been on my mind for a while and wanted to explore a bit deeper, also reflecting on my own life.
Over the years as my eyes have been opened to what is really going in the world behind the curtain and smokescreen of appearances, it became increasingly clear to me that just trying to change the world without changing oneself through sincere self-work is a dead-end road, or, like Don Quixote, chasing illusory windmills.
