< Clarity 4 > Self-righteousness is another way of feeding yourself, becoming so righteous with everything that you are, even though you know inside that you may not be right. We have to laugh sometimes. The self-righteous are screaming out inside for somebody to truly prove them wrong so they can get off their stupid horse (some laughter). But, they will continue to present this self-righteousness. It is feeding them. It is a way of them validating themselves, even though something on the inside doesn't feel right. But, they feed themselves with this type of thing. Again, no judgment… self-righteousness can be a wonderful energy to play with, as long as you recognize that it is just a game.

< Clarity 4QA > Indeed… if you take a look at the energy, or in the case of what we were discussing today - how energy feeds you - truth and lies basically are the exact same energy. There is no difference. They are both illusions. But, they are different expressions of an illusion. A lie generally tends to try to avoid reality. It tries to create a false aspect of reality outside of itself because it can't bear to see its truth. A lie tends to be a segment or an aspect of the truth that doesn't want to look at itself for whatever reason. You would consider it to be - how to say - a dark energy that is trying to deny itself, whereas the truth is an energy that's trying to accept itself and understand itself. But, both energies come from the exact same place.

We'd have to say that every lie feels that it is truth in one form or the other. It justifies itself as being truth. And, lies eventually turn into self-righteousness.

< (Next) 2 > It was an interesting type of righteousness where you knew what was best for you. And in spite of others trying to tell you or force you into doing it, you knew what was best for you. Then you began to then control everything around you and that control brings in other control from the outside. Then suddenly you become the victim of your own control, and suddenly it really forces you, in a moment like this, to stop and say, "Well, did I need to be so righteous with myself or with others?" Perhaps in this moment we can let that go and just accept. Accept. Beautiful, pure, simple acceptance. That's all. No control. No righteousness. No fear. Just acceptance.

< (Next) 6 > "I Am that I Am, because I don't give a damn." When you give a damn, you literally block out the I Am. Humans get caught in the giving a damn. As a matter of fact, it becomes part of their reason for living. They have to care about something. They have to have a passion. They have to have a mission and a cause and a purpose. It keeps them going. It keeps them very righteous. Ultimately, in the true I Am Presence, it doesn't matter. It really doesn't. I don't give a damn. It doesn't matter, because it's all in perfection. It all works out. You are God also. Stop struggling with it. Stop caring about it.
