  • Spirit moves up to merge ever higher.


Success & Failure from Ego


“The attachment to strong desire can feel like living instead of being dead thought (self-concepts, self-images, ego). Therefore, the fulfillment of that desire can feel like death or loss. This explains why people often hate or quickly tire of the object of their desire once they have obtained it.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

5TP on Thinking Failures

“Truth is often surrounded by so much deception and misinformation that it takes the mind of a detective to sort it out.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • The psychopath smiles when caught or trapped because they still think they are winning the game and that they are so superior that the fools can still easily be fooled again.
  • Being caught is a big joke to a psychopath. Deceiving and getting away with a crime is also a big joke and fun that proves their superiority.
  • The psychopath sees it as your problem that they got caught since they are superior and deserving of having their way right or wrong.

The clearest and highest understanding of meditation is as a process of bringing all thoughts into the captivity of the Light.

  • Many thoughts will want to flee the light but keep them captive so that they have to obey Light’s command to unfold in the Light.
  • The Light will set you free.
  • Trying to control or change unwanted thoughts will feed them.
  • Suppressing unwanted thoughts will maintain them in darkness.

If you cannot hold an unwanted thought in the Light and it is taking over your awareness or identity, then you can flee and hide inside until it passes. It will pass without you feeding it by pulling and pushing on it.

“For right meditation, withhold merging and continue to amplify until the content is fully revealed.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


“Deal with the details or the devil will.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

  • The most common propaganda for dualism is that there is no joy without sorrow. This is completely nonsensical and unfactual.
  • As explained in World Within: The Inner life, there is also a continuum comparison such that degrees or levels of joy can be known without any need for sorrow.
  • Yes, if you do not know soft, then you cannot compare hard to soft. But you can still know variations of hard and still compare degrees of hardness without knowing soft.
  • Notice how simplistic dualism is being used in politics to divide and conquer populations in order to establish fascist globalism.

“Trying to force moderation, the middle ground, synthesis, balance, or some in-between position as always being the right position is the most insidious form of extremism.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • There is no past, present, or future. Such are only memories of what has been or imaginations of what might be.
  • Instead, seek being.
  • To live in a state of being is to be aware of universal time and no time.
  • Being is all time and no time.
  • Ego lives in time.
  • The authentic self is beyond time.
  • The present is just another trap, another thing to identify self with and to feed ego with.

“Live in the past, and the present slips past.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • Truth, virtue, and reason are inseparable. They exist only in relationship to each other, or they are corrupt and faulty.

“Bias is unavoidable, but distortion is preventable.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Have faith in faith, hope in hope, and love for love.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Reasons are more important than numbers of adherents with credentials.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“The logic of truth is consistency. Truth is consistent unto itself, not to people, places, or things.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

SELF-ESTEEM As Rating Beings

  • When you compare, measure, or rate another person, you do so falsely. Why? Because you include measures and variables that are not part of a human being, such as beliefs, conditioning, culture, education, fame, fortune, position, race, title, etc.


The self-esteem or ego duality is shame and pride.

  • No pain (shame), no gain (pride).
  • The strength of the ego is hurt.
  • The game of ego is an outrage.
  • The practice of ego is whinging, blaming, and damning.


  • If your self-talk mainly detracts from your experience and life quality, then why have it?
  • Let your self-talk have its arguments without you.
  • Let your self-talk have its arguments with you as an impartial observer.


  1. Keep the entire goal in mind when working. Focus on the big picture. Keep the virtue in your mind’s eye.

“End your biases and prejudices against white men and conservatives before asking others to end their biases and prejudices.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Journalists have become mockers and scoffers instead of reporters.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Misogyny is Feminism telling women to want to be like men, not like women.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Women have always been the main conditioners of society because women have been the ones raising children and teaching at the schools while men were out slaving for money for the home.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

  • On the one hand, liberals say that a fetus is not a human being or even alive.
  • But on the other hand, liberals say that a fetus can already have a gay or homosexual identity.
  • These views are mutually exclusive, but doublethink is often the way of political correctness.


Some seemingly clever people are saying, “You cannot be conscious of unconsciousness.”

  • You can be conscious of suppression and repression, both of which are forms of unconsciousness.
  • You can be conscious of darkness, which is the source of unconsciousness.


“Consciousness exists in all life forms on the planet, but the consciousness of consciousness is particular to human beings.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Self-awareness is a triality of experience (positive), potential experience (neutral), and no experience (negative) wherein your soul observes your heart.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • Desire turns to disgust when desire wears itself out.
  • Desire turns to disgust when the object of desire has been used and abused for pleasure.


  • Suffer unto the end, even if the end promised is death, if you choose to keep suffering rather than surrendering to a wrong choice.
  • Keep yourself as the vessel waiting upon the Light.


  • Virtue is the only lasting happiness.
  • Hell is the lack of virtue.


It can be more honest to say “wouldn’t” than to say “couldn’t.”

  • People often say, “I couldn’t remember,” but they could have remembered unless they have brain damage.
  • Experiment with saying, “I wouldn’t remember,” and see if it is not more empowering and less victimizing.


  • Everything cannot be reduced to the reading level of a sixth-grader without leaving out too much.
  • A person of average intelligence should be able to understand most of what I write, but it will take higher intelligence to discover the rest.
  • Most of what I write about cannot be written.
  • Writing is a vain attempt to hold thinking accountable.

“Reading novels is like eating moist clay to quench your thirst because you do not have any philosophy to read.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


When creating lyrics, paintings, poetry, sculpture, or another art form, do not look for gain or reward; else, you corrupt the work.


  • Personality needs a point of safety and finds it by identifying with a real or imaginary group.
  • Personality is based on the five survival responses to defend the image of self.
  • Personality develops based on early successful strategies to provide safety for the ego and to defend the ego against attacks.


Want to live an exceptional life? Find one idea, principle, or virtue and devote your heart, soul, mind, and life to it.


If everything is easy and you encounter no difficulties or problems, then switch paths because you are not helping anyone without struggle.


  • You cannot make a parody of country music without making a country music hit song.
  • If you want to understand codependency, then listen to country music.


Thinking positively will not turn hugging a cactus into a joyful experience.


  • Do the work you are willing to do right now.

“How to ruin anything: put either the government or a committee in charge of it.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • Evil does not synchronize with reality.
  • Evil does not harmonize with reality.
  • Evil does not agree, align, fit, flow, get along, or vibrate with reality.
  • Evil is ugly, ugly is disorder, and disorder is imbalance.

“If the women’s movement requires the murdering of babies in order to succeed in its goals, then it is an evil movement.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • Attraction, determination, confidence, courage, hope, perseverance, positive expectating, positive thinking, thinking big, etc., don’t make the difference or your end goal to happen, but they all can be used to keep you on the right channel for completing your goal.


  • Pride works just like physical satisfaction does.
  • When you fulfill a bodily need by taking action such as drinking water, then there is satisfaction in fulfilling that need.
  • Pride takes satisfaction in knowing others are suffering or are inferior. Pride claims to have satisfied the need not to be inferior.
  • Simply, pride is pleasure from vicariously enjoying the misfortunes of others.
  • Shame comes from comparing while looking up to see those who are not suffering.
  • Pride comes from comparing while looking down to see those who are suffering.

2 Enemies: Ego & Body

  • Ego is an enemy because the ego is about claiming, trying, and becoming.
  • Ego is an enemy because the ego is greedy, ambitious, and follows low passions.
  • The body is an enemy because the body prefers sloth and laziness.
  • The body is an enemy because the body prefers pleasure-seeking to restraint or balance.


  • Bodily awareness is a coping tool, not a goal
  • Use bodily awareness to get out of your looping mind.
  • Use bodily awareness to distract yourself from a bad choice.
  • Use bodily awareness to detach yourself from self-esteem and ego stories.


  • You maintain criticalness in small things to prove that they are stupid for being mean to you. But the result is your suffering a miserable life to make others miserable who might not be affected while you are surely affected.
  • You serve it—you have it.


  • The medium is its own message, not the message it relays.
  • The medium can be a stronger message than the message that it relays.
  • The medium can cloud and cover the message with itself instead of serving the message with itself.
  • New mediums are often stronger than the messages they carry.
  • New mediums allow deception by making them carry messages that will not be noticed or ignored for the sake of the medium’s message.
  • For example, the message of the medium of special-effects focused movies can be that computers are more important than the story, those graphics are more important than content, that stimulation and excitement are all that matter, that speed and change or more important than either character or story development, that humans can create and control reality, that new frontiers are coming which will put all the old ways to shame, etc. Such messages can override the message of the movie’s story.

“Modern journalists are selectors of facts, not reporters of facts.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • What are you putting up on your screen?
  • What are you broadcasting?
  • Who would or should want to look at your stream of consciousness?
  • Instead of petty and unproductive self-talk, try using your TV for sharing virtue.


  • The group therapists should assign rotating roles or duties to each member of the group.
  • These duties or roles are based upon the skills of a group counselor.
  • For example, one member would be assigned the role of “Linker.” It would be their job to link the experiences, feelings, thoughts, and stories of group members with other members as part of their participation in the group.
  • Eventually, after everyone has played each part to their satisfaction, group members can choose to focus on a role they prefer either because they are good at it or because they are learning from it.
  • See Groups: Process & Practice, 7th Edition by Corey and Corey for example roles.


“When you die, you do not even take with you what you entered into the world with.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Philosophy is the discovery of the obvious.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“We do not block energy (chi), but it appears that we do when looping feelings and thoughts absorb our energy.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


  • Society has rules for what can be in and stay in every conceivable kind of space, but what rules do you have or enforce for what can be in and stay in your internal space?


  • Facts don’t always cover an issue or situation because something: involves too much chance, involves too much uncertainty, is too big to process or cover with just data or facts, is too far in the future to predict, is about values, not tangibles.
  • The exception proves the rule is a rule and not an absolute.
  • To argue for exceptions is to argue for the rule that has the exceptions.


“Considering the obvious to be important is as rare as common sense.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Obviously, the obvious is often missed or overlooked.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

2 Vessel Human Nature & 8 Voices

Two Vessels

  • Material Body
  • Spiritual Body

Dual tendencies exist for both vessels.

  • Being made good, both vessels enjoy the good.
  • Being made of flesh, both vessels prefer the bad.

Eight Voices or Pressures Total

  • Each body has four voices.
  • Each way (good or bad) of each body has two voices.
  • Being made good, the two voices are life and light.
  • Being made of bad, the two voices are death and darkness.

We both want to live and want to die.

We both want to experience and want to deny experience.

J. Krishnamurti in a Nutshell

Thank you for sharing music that has good and noble purposes, like to uplift and inspiring people. I also enjoy music that simply wants to comfort and soothe people. However, I will never be a fan of or condone music that promotes violence against women. I will never be a fan of music that degrades women. From a moral perspective, I will never be a fan of music with lyrics in favor of the lowest and worst lifestyles. Popular music influences young minds, and encouraging children to seek vice instead of virtue is irresponsible. I will continue to attack such poison and object to its cultural acceptance. I do not care who produces it or what names it hides under; it is worse than garbage. Trying to protect this trash as being some advanced or stylistic innovation is like getting children to take poison to broaden their knowledge of cuisine. Love music enough to defend it from the fakes.
