The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers

An Eschatological Laundry List by Sheldon B. Kopp

From 'If you Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him" by Sheldon B. Kopp, Bantam Books.

1. This is it.

2. There are no hidden meanings.

3. You can't get there from here, and besides there is no place to go.

4. We are already dying, and we'll be dead a long time.

5. Nothing lasts!

6. There is no way of getting all you want.

7. You can't have anything unless you let go of it.

8. You only get to keep what you give away.

9. There is no particular reason why you lost out on some things.

10. The world is not necessarily just. Being good often does not pay off and there's no compensation for misfortune.

11. You have the responsibility to do your best nonetheless.

12. It's a random universe to which we bring meaning.

13. You really don't control anything.

14. You can't make anyone love you.

15. No one is any stronger or any weaker than anyone else.

16. Everyone is, in his own way, vulnerable.

17. There are no great men.

18. If you have a hero, look again; you have diminished yourself in some way.

19. Everyone lies, cheats, pretends. (yes, you too, and most certainly myself.)

20. All evil is potentially vitality in need of transformation.

21. All of you is worth something if you will only own it.

22. Progress is an illusion.

23. Evil can be displaced but never eradicated, as all solutions breed new problems.

24. Yet it is necessary to keep struggling toward solution.

25. Childhood is a nightmare.

26. But it is so very hard to be an on-your-own, take-care-of-yourself-cause-there-is-no-one-else-to-do-it-for-you grown-up.

27. Each of us is ultimately alone.

28. The most important things each man must do for himself.

29. Love is not enough, but it sure helps.

30. We have only ourselves, and one another. That may not be much, but that's all there is.

31. How strange, that so often, it all seems worth it.

32. We must live within the ambiguity of partial freedom, partial power, and partial knowledge.

33. All important decisions must be made on the basis of insufficient data.

34. Yet we are responsible for everything we do.

35. No excuses will be accepted.

36. You can run, but you can't hide.

37. It is most important to run out of scapegoats.

38. We must learn the power of living with our helplessness.

39. The only victory lies is in surrender to oneself.

40. All of the significant battles are waged within the self.

41. You are free to do whatever you like. You need only face the consequences.

42. What do you know for sure...anyway?

43. Learn to forgive yourself, again and again and again and again…


Of course any "true" lightworker would focus on 43, yet the 42 others are worth checking too.

LOL Tony! You're so right: RC often pops to mind and his quotes are nothing but brilliant.

OK, now… Go to bed, Kid! And don't tell your mom or I kill her. LOL

HAHAHHAHAA
it has some truth in it, you know?

and i was wondering how being eschatological has gotta do with those...

es·cha·tol·o·gy (ěs'kə-tŏl'ə-jē) Pronunciation Key
n.
The branch of theology that is concerned with the end of the world or of humankind.
A belief or a doctrine concerning the ultimate or final things, such as death, the destiny of humanity, the Second Coming, or the Last Judgment.

Thank you iDom. And, yes, it did make me think (hence the "book" lol). Thanks for listening.

hugs,
Blisseon

How could I feel criticized, dear? Sheldon B. Kopp's “Laundry List” — subtitled: A Partial Register of the 927 (or was it 928?) Eternal Truths — appears in his Pilgrimage of Psychotherapy Patients book: "If you Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him", as I mentioned.

Far beyond any critic or disagreement, I find your reaction to each number absolutely interesting in revealing more of your psyche. For after all, this whole little stance is made for an insightful conversation with oneself, which you brilliantly demonstrated.

Thank you! Very interesting indeed.

Thanx Besimi, 45 received and appreciated. I would have more preferred some further answer on the 'Elohim' subject, but oh well, that's another thread anyway…

lol Tony, you're the perfect man! Your 44 is priceless. Besides, I am sure Gallagher and Kopp would have liked each other a lot..!

Below you will find my remarks to this post. They are just my opinions that stem from my life's philosophies. I don't mean to criticize you, iDom, I think that maybe we just disagree :)

____________________________________________

1. This is it.

Well, by "this" do you mean life? Because I believe there is physical life beyond this physical life that we are all experiencing. If this is not true then what is ascension about?

2. There are no hidden meanings.

Maybe not hidden on purpose, but there are meanings that must be searched for. That is what makes them of value when you find them.

3. You can't get there from here, and besides there is no place to go.

This statement takes away a person's faith. If there is no way to get "there" from "here" (whatever that means) this is cause for a general loss of hope, isn't it? No place to go? Well - that sounds like self-limitation to me.

4. We are already dying, and we'll be dead a long time.

Dead? In what way? If you mean the shedding of the 3D human biology, then ok.


5. Nothing lasts!

Love is forever.

6. There is no way of getting all you want.

Depends on what you want doesn't it? If you want the right stuff, you will get all you ever wanted and much more.

7. You can't have anything unless you let go of it.

I kind of agree with this one - but, wait, I thought the previous statement said that there is no way of getting what you want? So, when paired up with the previous statement, I guess this is trying to say that we only get things we don't want, and that we have to "let go" of those things so that we can keep them.

8. You only get to keep what you give away.

Again, this applies to the previous two, same type of topic.

9. There is no particular reason why you lost out on some things.

Synchronicity. It is all around us at all times. If you ignore it, then you just don't see it.

10. The world is not necessarily just. Being good often does not pay off and there's no compensation for misfortune.

Again, this statement takes people's faith away. The world certainly is a just place, when it is in balance. Our problem is that it has been way out of balance for a very long time. A more accurate statement would be: there exists good and bad, blessings and misfortune and they all play a part in our lives on this particular dimensional plane. However, in our world everything is like a pendulum which must swing back to compensate for it's momentum, back and forth, until it rests in the center (fully balanced). This means that there is indeed justice, in a balanced world. We should not blame our problems on nature, when it is our own error that caused our imbalances. Believe me friends, there is virtue in the world around us.

11. You have the responsibility to do your best nonetheless.

I agree with this one.

12. It's a random universe to which we bring meaning.

It's a miraculous and orderly universe which can contribute largely to the meaningfulness in each of our lives.

13. You really don't control anything.

No, but we do create.

14. You can't make anyone love you.

Nope, but we can plug ourselves into an entire grid of love. It's called family, whether it be biological or non-biological.

15. No one is any stronger or any weaker than anyone else.

Only in our minds.

16. Everyone is, in his own way, vulnerable.

Very, very true. The trick is to recognize where we are vulnerable and be smart, not afraid of it.

17. There are no great men.

I prefer to think of all humans as great.

18. If you have a hero, look again; you have diminished yourself in some way.

I agree with this statement only so much as to say: everyone puts their pants on one leg at a time (an old saying from my grandma.) However, there is nothing wrong with admiring and respecting someone when they have earned it.

19. Everyone lies, cheats, pretends. (yes, you too, and most certainly myself.)

Yes, but this isn't something to be aspired to, or to say this is ok and can't be helped. In 5D they are all telepathic - they read your mind as soon as look at you. When you get near they know what you are thinking. Stop for a minute and consider what this means for a society. We won't be able to lie to each other or cheat each other, or even pretend. Our lives will be a total open book to each other. And without even having look into my eyes, you will know that I am telling you the truth.

20. All evil is potentially vitality in need of transformation.

No "evil person" is originally evil. They have taken on that persona. They have chosen that reality and created if for themselves.

21. All of you is worth something if you will only own it.

Well, I would go so far as to say that all of you is worth everything.

22. Progress is an illusion.

To be honest, it is not up to anyone to tell me what is an illusion to me and what is real. This is like the movie, "Contact" when Jodie Foster was kind of criticizing her boyfriend's faith in God, and that he couldn't prove it. He asked her, "Well let me ask you something. Did you love your dad?" she said, "Yes..." He said, "Well, prove it."

23. Evil can be displaced but never eradicated, as all solutions breed new problems.

Only if you insist on staying with the imbalanced systems.

24. Yet it is necessary to keep struggling toward solution.

An open-minded and philosophical pursuit towards solutions doesn't have to be a struggle. It can be a joy and very fulfilling.

25. Childhood is a nightmare.

I look back at my childhood, and it was pure joy. Even the times when I had to learn hard lessons, I value them so very highly now that those times have even been moved over to the "joy" side. To think any less of my life up to this point would be unmindful of the events that have molded me into the person I am today.

26. But it is so very hard to be an on-your-own, take-care-of-yourself-cause-there-is-no-one-else-to-do-it-for-you grown-up.

This attitude is part of what has made our society as unbalanced as it is today. We are all connected. An injustice to my neighbor is an injustice to me. If someone steals from my neighbor, it is stealing from me. It is only when people don't understand this that they can feel free to hurt other people. Yes, we do have problems in our society, and we do have to be careful and watch out or someone will hurt us. But it takes visionaries to break out of that mold. I prefer to promote the vision of peace and freedom for all.

27. Each of us is ultimately alone.

Again, we are all connected. None of us are truly alone. We were never meant to be alone, we don't work that way. When we feel that we are alone, something very precious dies inside of us. No one should feel alone. If you do feel alone, drop me a note, I will be your friend :)

28. The most important things each man must do for himself.

Ego says this. Actually, the most important things have already been done for us. Relax and see them. There is richness all around us and the great thing is that each of us are a fixture in our own right. It's the difference between feeling that you "must go-it alone" and the idea that we are all an intricate, permanent part of something very big.

29. Love is not enough, but it sure helps.

Yeah, it is. When you look at love the right way, yes, it is more than enough. Love isn't just the fuzzy teddy bear type, "here's a hug" thing, nor is it purely a romantic, physical thing. Love is what makes the single mother wake up early every morning to keep her house clean, get the kids off to school and then go to work herself day after day. Love is what makes the sister go under the knife to donate that kidney to her brother because he would not survive without it. Love is what makes you go without so that someone you love can have enough. Love is what makes you want to see someone else succeed, for the sake of succeeding. Love is when you are willing to step out in front of a speeding bus to save another life. And after having done this, true love says, "it was worth it."

30. We have only ourselves, and one another. That may not be much, but that's all there is.

Ourselves and one another - what more could anyone ever want?

31. How strange, that so often, it all seems worth it.

Always, but not strange.

32. We must live within the ambiguity of partial freedom, partial power, and partial knowledge.

Only in an imbalanced world.

33. All important decisions must be made on the basis of insufficient data.

Only in an imbalanced world.

34. Yet we are responsible for everything we do.

We must experience the consequences of the things we do, but we are not held responsible. If we were actually responsible (in the spiritual sense) none of us would be alive today.

35. No excuses will be accepted.

ok...

36. You can run, but you can't hide.

ok...

37. It is most important to run out of scapegoats.

ok...?

38. We must learn the power of living with our helplessness.

If we give up our ego, we no longer feel helpless.

39. The only victory lies is in surrender to oneself.

Correction, the only victory lies in the surrendering of one's ego to a bigger concept that one's self.

40. All of the significant battles are waged within the self.

Unfortunately, this is the state of most people. It is only when these inner battles stop that you begin to see past your view of yourself to see that you actually fit into a much larger plan.

41. You are free to do whatever you like. You need only face the consequences.

There is a very wise saying, "My freedom ends right at the point in which my fist touches the end of your nose."

42. What do you know for sure...anyway?

And this is a problem because... ?

43. Learn to forgive yourself, again and again and again and again…

Been there, done that. Except that after a while, if you stop letting your ego lead you, you realize that mistakes aren't all that horrible most of the time and therefore you could care less, and there is nothing to forgive :P

I guess I am not very eschatological. Ha!
