If bitch is the new black, then asshole is the new stupid. Sure, there are people in history, in business, and the entertainment industry who may be considered assholes. However, I believe that these people are master alchemist who mastered the science of turning karma into dharma. Maybe Steve Jobs was a slave driver and deadbeat dad. Maybe, George Washington was a bastard for burning the boats his soldiers arrived in. Sure Jay Z launched his career by being a womanizer and misogynist pig. And Eminem can probably go down in history as being the most obnoxious and annoying rapper of all time. Let’s keep it real. All of these people have something in common, negativity. But through the process of spiritual alchemy, they were able to turn their sh*t into gold.
So what is karma?
It is all the sh*t that you were born with. Don’t be fooled by all the hype that you create you own world with your choices. In truth, you are heavily influenced by the collective consciousness (universe/ancestors). If you are not aware, enlightened, or strong, then the collective consciousness will start to make choices for you. And trust me, you aren’t going to like it. The collective consciousness discerns who’s going to be broke, rich, diseased, happy or miserable. Lucky for you, you have the ability to change this through the process of dharma. This is when you begin to transform your life by appealing to the collective consciousness (ancestors). However, you can only do this by changing your perception and or transcending to a higher level of consciousness.
The process of alchemy has even been explored in ancient African practices.
In Yoruba, alchemy is described as an alignment of the heavenly and earthly consciousness. In Chinese medicine, it is explained as the marriage between two polarized opposites such as yin/yang, positive/negative, or male or female. The combination of these two forces supersedes the strengths of just one polarity, thus allowing one to transcend into a higher level of consciousness. So what does all of this mean in dummy terms? It means that negative energy is needed in order for you to grow spiritually. Also, the more negative energy you have, the greater your chances of reaching a higher level of consciousness (aha)!
So at this time, your inner critic is probably picking this post apart. Besides, how can a Negative Nancy have more potential at being successful and spiritual than someone who is always positive? There is a simple answer to that question. Negative Nancy has yet to learn her power. She doesn’t know how to turn her sh*t into gold. Instead, with the help of modern religion, she has been taught to suppress this energy, and the darkness that is inside of her brings about guilt and shame. So all of her negative energy is redirected back towards her, and causes her to degrade in spirit and in character. Energy, when given the opportunity will be released. But it will be released in the form of anger, arrogance, insecurity, depression, self-hate and pain. So in a nutshell, negative energy when not expressed will cause you to implode.
So what do the most successful people in the world do?
They release this energy into something that they are incredibly passionate about. They become the pioneers in technology. They become the revolutionist. They become the innovators who change themselves and the world through art and music. They become master alchemist. They are able to balance the positive and negative forces within themselves. They are then lifted out of their world into the subtle world. On this level, they have access to the realities that are hidden from them in the physical world. On this level, they can see the solutions to all of their problems. On this level, they begin to create their lives by working with the collective consciousness as opposed to working against it. This is when they begin to understand spiritual alchemy, and thus are able to master the process of changing karma into dharma.
