Out of the many incarnations that “The Christ” assumed in order to serve the human condition, one is Melchizedek, a totally balanced being as a Priest and as a King— and spiritually androgynous. Being more “spirit” than “physical”, he/she appeared on the Earth without a birth experience, wrote The Book of Job and the teachings on the principle of “The Law of One”. Upon completing his physical work, through true spontaneous combustion, he left the earth plane. Melchizedek is beloved by many faiths, as a great teacher and prophet. The “School of the Prophets” and the Essene Order are a result of his earthwork.
When I was ordained I felt a lovely energy descend into my body, and I was filled with a great sense of peace.
I had horrendous self-esteem issues for most of my life. The inner critic used to throw a lot of knock out punches my way and it kept me pinned down to the floor.
Whenever I went for job interviews it was tough. Getting in the door is tough enough, and when the mind starts chattering it becomes a no-win situation.
Whatever the mind would see, it would tell a story about it. If the interviewee reminded me of someone, I was pulled into the past and thought, “Oh, that person didn’t like me, so they won’t like me either.”
I didn’t have access to the Internet for the early job hunting days, so there wasn’t much research that you could do about the company. When the interviewee asked what I knew about something company-related and I didn’t know, the inner critic would chime in: “That’s it, you blew it. You don’t know anything!”
There is a way out from the inner critic — meditation and other mindfulness techniques. This allows you to place the inner critic aside.
