The message of Desteni is really simple and common sensical. It is straight to the point.
It’s a message that requires one to take self-responsibility for/as all LIFE . This is self-realization in a nutshell.
I was indoctrinated that self-realization comes from a guru, so i did not really know how this process of self-perfection can be done practically. It was so difficult for me to ‘understand’ when i started looking at it (2006 or start of 2007). I watched the videos of Desteni on the internet day in and day out (about 8 hrs a day or more) ‘trying to understand’ how i can apply this process . I had been a ‘yogi’ for 29 yrs. I had friends in the group for that long and was a senior member of that group. It was not easy to let go of all that – but i eventually did and i am glad i did. Most of them are still my Facebook friends as i write.
I had been investigating many groups that taught about the subject of self-realization. I believed that the REAL SELF is something that can only be ‘attained by surrendering to the guru’ – who i defined as someone more knowledgeable than me – who can give me liberation from bondage. I believed i cannot do it myself because i am powerless as the ego . This was what the spiritual texts said – so i took it as my truth. That was my biggest mistake. I did not consider the fact that i am Life itself.
Meditating on a mantra ( a combination of Sanskrit words which means “I am that” ) gave me bliss, but i was totally unaware of what i was doing. I was just doing meditation because it gave me bliss – which can also be a belief that i manifest – as i believed i will get bliss when i meditate. I was taught surrendering to the guru is a way of liberating me from the ego – not realizing that that is the ego – within judgment, where i see the guru more than me – someone who i had to surrender to . I did not see that i was actually judging him.
When in a state of bliss (mind created) it was difficult to see the mess in Life. It was easy to just live – day in and day out doing what I normally do – and not change. Why change when I defined change as uncomfortable? I was comfortable in just doing yoga, meditation and chanting. I was blissful – so why should i change?
It was in 2006 when i started to do a website about Universal Love and Peace . I was trying to unite different ‘spiritual’ groups – believing that i can change this world if i do that. What i did not realize was that i was doing it from a point of separation (from/as life).
The decision to do self-forgiveness came when I read a letter from Osho – from the interdimensional portal telling me that this is indeed impossible as i was doing it from a point of separation. I did not quite understand the letter then, but when i started self-forgiveness, it all made sense to me. It was when i was reading the Veno self-forgiveness list aloud that i understood what Desteni meant – that i participated in the creation of how this world functions through my acceptances and allowances.
I was diagnosed with 4th stage breast cancer in 2008 – so i was able to test the self-forgiveness fully at that point. I did self-forgiveness for fear of death, identification with the body etc. I looked at the commonsense of what was in front of me – death. I can either die or transcend death. I took it as a way to know who i really am. I was told by my doctors that there were no guarantees that i will live – so i refused chemotherapy and radiation. I had surgery because my breast was growing ten-fold. The surgeon told me horrible stories of people who refused chemotherapy who died with rotting breasts wherein their relatives refused to even see them – so they died alone. The surgeon told me after the operation that he’s pleased with the result of the operation. He was surprised to see that there were no new growths. He told me that normally, a week after the operation, growths reappear. After a year, i got a blood test and it was normal.
After the operation, i got separated and then got divorced a year later. I lived alone for 2 and 1/2 yrs. after that and decided to devote my time to my process. That was a point in my life where the only thing that made sense was self-forgiveness and self correction. I can truly say that this process assisted me in seeing that it was possible to direct myself and birth myself here for real.
When i enrolled at the Desteni I Process course in 2010 i was taught how to do a mind construct. I was able to do a food mind construct , a beauty and sex mind construct. I was able to see how i designed my beliefs, judgments etc. within food, sex and beauty. That was when i understood how i accepted and allowed myself to become who i am and how i can direct myself to let go of that limited perception of myself and birth me here as Self as LIFE.
That was a ‘relief’ . To me that was a gift of life.
That was when i heard the Desteni message.
After i was able to see the commonsense in the process i was doing, I began looking at the Equal Money System. I translated the EMS from English to Filipino. When i was reading the texts that i was going to translate, i was ‘impressed’ by the simplicity and commonsense behind it.
The BIG – Basic Income Grant is already being adopted by some countries which makes it a viable starting point, and from there, the Equal Life Party will begin running in mainstream politics with a platform of establishing Equal Money for All. No guru has offered a real solution like this one -with a timetable specified of 10 years for its establishment. I suggest people look at this.
This is the real answer that we have been waiting for.
