PEOPLE BEHAVE ACCORDING TO THEIR PERSONALITIES, THEIR EGOS AND BODIES; EVEN WHEN YOU GIVE THEM INSIGHTS AS TO WHY THEY ARE BEHAVING AS THEY DO, THEY STILL WILL NOT CHANGE FOR CHANGE REQUIRES CHANGING THEIR EGO AND BODY CONCEPTION
I see a person behaving in a certain manner. I know that due to her problematic body she felt a need to reject her body and did so; she then used her imagination to invent an ideal self that says that it is superior and powerful; she identified with that false, self-concept and behaves from it; she now does not respect the people around her; they see that she is deluded in the sense that she fancies herself to be a high and mighty person that she is not; pursuing her desired ideal and powerful self, she is unable to get along with other people or to respect her parents or teachers and dropped out of school and lives on the side lines of society where in not participating in society she fancies herself ideal and powerful whereas she is poor.
I tell her these things, and she keeps pretending that she is who she is not, high and mighty. I feel frustrated and yell at her and eventually leave her alone and want nothing to do with her.
The issue here is that she cannot change her personality, even if she recognizes that it is problematic, it is difficult for her to change her personality once it is set.
If you want to love her, you love her spirit and overlook her personality, ego and body. Even if you do so she still will not change, for to change requires her to give up the ego and self-image she formed in childhood from her initial interaction with her body and society; her personality, ego and body is the idol of her invention, and she worships it and does not want to give it up, change it; to give it up is to embrace a different self, one she did not make by herself but one given to her by God and all of us..
Another woman is on social media talking to friends all day long and has no time for those close to her. I tell her that what she is doing is not amenable to good relationships. There is too much male energy around her, many of them wanting to have sex with her and some of them are evil souls and they directed their evil energy to her and that makes her perpetually sick.
I told her to cut it out and relate to her children, grandchildren and to one male lover but she would not listen or change. She has been given the information and she keep doing what she does, so you leave her alone. Can she change?
Only if she acknowledges that she has a problem and is willing to change her identification, from ego and body to Christ spirit, and become a loving person, not a person seeking attention for her ego and body.
I JUST REREAD PARTS OR RAMANA MAHARSHI (SEE REFERENCE BELOW), A SUPPOSED GOD REALZIED PERSON AND WHAT HE SAID IN PARTS OF THE BOOK IS NOT TRUE, HE SAID THAT THE SOUL IS IN THE RIGHT PART OF THE HEART, NOT THE HEAD AND BRAIN AND GOES ON TO DESCRIBE THE HEART, ALL FALSE DESCRIPTION; I FELT TOTAL IRRITATION FROM HEARING HIM TALK NONSENSE. I CONCLUDE THAT HE PROBABLY HAD A GOD EXPERIENCE WHERE HE LET GO OF HIS FALSE EGO SELF AND FELT ONE WITH THE UNIVERSAL ENERGY THAT FOLKS CALL GOD BUT WHEN HE RETURNED TO HIS EGO AWARENESS HE CONTINUED TALKING AS THE SEMI ILLITERATE HE WAS.
A course in miracles contains a wonderful theology on how to let go of the separated ego identification and regain a sense of unified spirit self hence become saved but it has zero knowledge of biology and did not understand how the human body influences the individual’s construction of his ego.
Our underlying self is part of universal self, intelligence; upon birth in a specific body that intelligence uses the biological configuration it is born in to construct its personality. You must factor in the body’s make up and society into which the child is born to understand his personality; it is not good enough to cavalierly say that body and ego are not real and should just be overlooked; you cannot overlook them and still live in body; you need to understand the specific make up of your body and deal with its issues objectively, not deny them, even if that means focusing on body and ego and in doing so make them real; you need to do so to understand body and ego and when you are ready you stop identifying with body and ego and become aware of your real self, part of universal intelligence.
I feel like I understand more about spirituality than Hindus who talk about the nondual state of our being, and I do. This is not my ego arrogance speaking; it is based on reading these folks talking rubbish.

- Africans, certainly the Nigerans that I know, do not read books. They grudgingly read the books that their teachers at elementary, secondary and university schools require them to read. Upon leaving school they feel like they are done with reading. Very few of them go to libraries and check books out, every week and read them, or go to bookstores and buy books and read them; they may not even read newspapers and magazines. They get home from work and eat until they grow fat and die from cardiovascular diseases or drink themselves to death. Their average life span is 53 years. These folks spend most of their time just talking with each other, circulating their abysmal ignorance. Given their lack of interest in reading, when they come to social media, they want to read a few lines and if a piece of writing is a page or more, they skip it. These people are the world’s most ignorant people. I dare say that only one in thousands of them read what I write. This is a pity because I have taken my time trying to educate them, get them out of their amazing state of ignorance. But, as they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. I have done what I can; the rest is up to them. They prefer to be the world’s laughingstock, they are always last in everything that human being do, and, of course, they rationalize their backwardness by shamelessly always blaming the white man; nothing is ever their fault; they engage in incredible corruption and turn their country to thief land and blame the white man for it.
- Every year countries select their best secondary school students and send them to an international scholastic Olympics. Asian countries, say, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore would come first, second and third. The USA comes out at around the sixteenth. How about Nigeria? Not one of them is ranked in the top two hundred. But if you heard them talk, you would think that they are all geniuses! The excellent schools that the British colonials left for them have all collapsed. Who would maintain them, buy chemicals for science labs? Not the thieves governing the joint. What a people!
