To Exploit Is to Be Exploited
As most of us seek power in one form or another, the hierarchical principle is established, the novice and the initiate, the pupil and the Master, and even among the Masters there are degrees of spiritual growth. Most of us love to exploit and be exploited, and this system offers the means, whether hidden or open. To exploit is to be exploited. The desire to use others for your psychological necessities makes for dependence, and when you depend you must hold, possess; and what you possess possesses you.
Without dependence, subtle or gross, without possessing things, people, and ideas, you are empty, a thing of no importance. You want to be something, and to avoid the gnawing fear of being nothing you belong to this or that organization, to this or that ideology, to this church or that temple; so you are exploited, and you in your turn exploit.

The Cultivation of Detachment
There is only attachment, there is no such thing as detachment. The mind invents detachment as a reaction to the pain of attachment. When you react to attachment by becoming "detached", you are attached to something else. So that whole process is one of attachment. You are attached to your wife or your husband, to your children; to ideas, to tradition, to authority, and so on; and your reaction to that attachment is detachment. The cultivation of detachment is the outcome of sorrow, pain, You want to escape from the pain of attachment, and your escape is to find something to which you think you can be attached.
So there is only attachment, and it is a dense mind that cultivates detachment. All the books say, "Be detached," but what is the truth of the matter? If you observe your own mind, you will see an extraordinary thing--- that cultivating detachment, your mind is becoming attached to something else.
This morning I would like to take the time to thank all of the women who have inspired, encouraged and helped me get to where I currently am in my life experience. Without all your love and care I wouldn't be as strong or smart as I am today. The women who are a part of my life are all very beautiful, inside and out, and I couldn't imagine what I would be like without their influence. Though it is true that most of the time I am tending to nature's and thy Cosmic Spirits guidance, we are all a part of the same spec in the Universe, 10 thousand light years in the past.
I intend that all the women on this planet continue holding themselves in the highest light. Take care of the Earth and the beings that surround you, use your creative and loving energy to make lasting changes here while you can.
Namaste Light Beings
