spiritual distraction;

< Master 10 > They have no concept of what you're talking about. That is … I have a little word for that. Oh, I call it makyo. Look it up on the Internet. Makyo. Okay, next. Makyo. Okay, I won't explain it now. Keep you in curiosity. You love curiosity.

< (Next) 1 > Tied closely to doubt - makyo doesn't work very well. Makyo. Makyo. Spiritual bullshit. Why do people have - why do some of you have - have makyo? Because you doubt yourself. Do you know what you do when you doubt yourself? You come up with all this crap. You come up with all these little clichés and these little sayings and these little … Well, that's bullshit! And you tell yourself you're spiritual. You're not! Spiritual is so yesterday. It really is. It was just a bad excuse for being in your mind and making yourself seem better than anybody else, because ultimately you really doubted yourself. It doesn't look good on you.

< (Next) 2 > You actually don't have to do a lot. You don't have to go and beat yourself, please. You don't have to drink twelve gallons of water a day; three or four is good enough. (1 gallon = 3.8 liters) There's not a lot other than accept. Accept. That's it. Anything else is makyo.

< (Next) 3 > So what would be the antithesis of ahmyo? Makyo! (laughter) Absolutely. Makyo. Now, for some of you who don't know what that is, I would say the word for makyo is… it means false, delusional, distracting. I generally associate the word with spiritual distraction or spiritual B.S.

< (Next) 3 > It happens to everyone I've ever known who is on the spiritual path, including Buddha - lot of makyo there - including some of the great spiritual leaders of the times, including every Ascended Master that I've ever known. They get to this point of makyo on the journey. It happens kind of near the end of self-realization, and they start polluting themselves with a lot of crap - spiritual bullshit, rhetorical, dogmatic, organizational and structural stuff.

< (Next) 3 > And that's why - I irritate people sometimes - but I say get off of the astrology. Now, I love astrology, but not when it's an addiction. I love crystals when they're adorning my hands and my body … as in jewelry. You know, I love Tarot, when it's done right, when it's empowering. But all of these things, including - sacred ground here - including Shaumbra can be makyo. All of these things become distractions. They are false. They are put into place for a couple of reasons. One, to fill a void, because when you get to this part of the awakening process, suddenly you perceive up ahead is a big void, a big nothingness. In other words, you can't see past the release of all the human games, so it feels empty up ahead. So often you then put makyo in the path, you put a lot of distractions in the path to fill a void.

< (Next) 3 > Now, be it known that there is no void in all of creation. It can't be. In this dimension, any other dimension, there is no void. There is no void. Get rid of that belief that there are voids. There can't be, because it's creation. Can't be. So you're loading up your future or this upcoming void with a bunch of crap, a game. The makyo is put there oftentimes, because there is a resistance to ending the game, so these are more game chips or game toys that are put there. Makyo is also put there - all this distraction and everything else - because you don't want to face the real issue that's in front of you right now, and that's ahmyo. Trust.

< (Next) 3 > I have seen very wise, amazing, radiant spiritual human beings who are very, very evolved on their path, as you would say, who are ready to take that final step into what you would call the ascension status and suddenly they go makyo on me. Suddenly, they get into falseness at the last moment. They have to fill it with something. They're literally afraid to go to this step - 100 percent trust in self. They can get to 99.9, but that has been a fearful line to cross.

There's always a hold out. "I can trust everything about me other than …" and you fill in the blank. "Other than the way I look; other than my intelligence, how I appear to others." It's a big trap for spiritual workers, spiritual leaders. Suddenly, they think they have to come off a certain way in front of others - wise, intelligent, seeping of white light and blessings and wise statements. Not at all! Not at all. Actually, the true spiritual teacher and worker gets real human, because they're not afraid of it. They're not afraid of it. So, absolute trust.

< e2012 10 > What's makyo? (audience says “Bullshit”) See, I don't have to say it anymore. Makyo is your spiritual distractions. Makyo … it comes in when the awakening process starts. It's like just when you really feel good, you're going to do this awakening thing, you're going to be spiritual, that's when the makyo really comes in. I mean, in spades, in multipliers of makyo. You've all seen it. You've all done it. You've all experienced it.

< e2012 10 > There's a lot of people that are invested in their makyo. Deeply invested in makyo. I mean, literally, on a business. Makyo business, makyo spiritual business, makyo spiritual books. They're deeply invested in their makyo, so it's very hard for them to let go. I give you a lot of credit, all of you, for first of all understanding what makyo is, and then releasing it. Getting down with yourself.
