It is said through the revelation of the spiritual and angelic world that there is a new paradigm, a new paradigm that claims more than a decade ago that a man has no soul, but that man IS A SOUL and the soul has a body as if it were his clothing. This paradigm is to be understood in the sense that only a 10% of the spirit embodies and the other 90% of our spiritual essence remains in the respective supraphysical plane.
This 10% has huge strength, so huge that it can shake his 90%. I clarify it in which sense I say it. My spiritual part said at some point and repeatedly that the physical plane is like a gravity well, it's like a black hole that pulls us down, and it is true because although we embody to enjoy the five senses, sometimes those five senses play against us because they create dependency on us, the five senses create dependency. We need caresses, we need affection, we need to feel the warmth of the sun, etc. However at the same time, our incarnated part, we, as humans, are prey of the ego, which is the most ferocious instrument to subdue us, and the ego, as I have said it many times, is not an independent object of us, the ego is part of ourselves, it’s the role that we play, and one of the most pernicious roles of the ego is the religious fanaticism because fanaticism takes away from us the discernment, fanaticism takes from us coherence, it takes from us common sense, fanaticism creates dependency, it is unreasoning bigotry, fanaticism turns deaf and blind to the religious person. One understands but does not want to understand, if the pun is accepted.
And I want to talk about exclusively to religious fanaticism, religious fanaticism in which Catholic parents take to baptize a little boy and the boy says: “through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault” when that child is not guilty of anything because in his 8 years of life he has not committed hostile acts, let’s not talk about past lives.
Now I want to talk about exclusively to the present life of each one of us, an 8-year-old boy, with exceptions, commits mischief not hostile acts, then, by instilling guilt, which means implanting engrams or instilling guilt complex to a boy or a girl, it’s absolutely a hostile act with the aggravation that as I said in other occasions that there are different categories of ego, one is self-importance or superiority, which means a cocktail or whatever you want to call it, it would be a dose of pedantry, a dose of petulance, a dose of narcissism, that famous air of arrogance of those who supposedly represent the Father and they cannot be objected because they are the “owners of the truth”, in this case their truth.
As an aggravating issue let’s not talk about the Protestant Church and its several denominations that worship Jehovah, the Eloah of the Old Testament, because we know very well that this “god” was a cruel and despotic being, who was the accomplice along with Moses of thousands of deaths, tortured people, impalements, rape, useless sacrifice of babies and old people. No, let's talk about ordinary Catholics, not Protestants, who although don’t have this fanaticism like the Protestant Christians, in some countries of America they are called 'evangelical', they do have some cruelty to those who do not share their doctrine, word that I detect as dogma.
Many years ago, 16 or 17 years ago, I met an elderly woman who was minister of the Eucharist in a charismatic church in Belgrano - Buenos Aires – she helped the priests in ceremonies, masses which were good because they were sung, they played the guitar, but I met this older person in her private life. She was an absolutely ruthless, despotic person who subjected physically and morally to her daughter, her daughter was forty-some years old and she had gone when she was a child to a convent school where she was tortured, not whipped, that would have been the top of it, but she did walk barefoot in winter over rice, they soaked her clothes in the rain in winter as a punishment for having prayed less, and when the daughter grew up, she reproached her mother, and the mother said: 'it's not my fault, tell it to God'. Let’s say that this Eucharistic minister along with others transformed herself in a sort of Pontius Pilate washing his hands in the bowl. Some time ago, about 21 or 22 years ago, the father of a classmate who was at 4th grade elementary with my daughter, he used to talk badly about the Roman curia, their luxuries, their betrayals in red robes, in the golden temples, in his paintings of thousands of dollars, and its contradictions. being that his daughter was taking communion that weekend, he argued that he did it 50% of family tradition and 50% because her daughter had Jesus with her, putting a limit to the love and understanding of Jesus to a useless ceremony, thinking surely in a way so closed of thinking and so narrow that if the child does not fulfill this ceremony Jesus will not be with her.
It is not a way to offend Jesus, obviously Jesus will not be offended because he is above the ego, but. Isn’t a way of offending Jesus thinking that if the child does not fulfill certain ceremony he/she is not going to be with him or the Father? Isn’t a narrow mindset thinking that if the child does not fulfill certain ritual, no matter the excellent behavior of the creature, he/she will not be chosen in the celestial areas? That kind of thinking really upsets me, it disturbs my judgment, and sometimes I doubt of the coherence of the human race, I don’t want to be extremist.
And now let’s talk about fundamentalism in some Eastern countries where directly they speak about 'holy wars'. Talking about holy wars it would like flowers without scent, like talking about light, which does not shine, like talking about water, which does not wet, like talking about loss without pain, it makes no sense to speak about a “holy war” it would be like talking about a merciful murderer; it does not make sense, no coherence, no common sense at all.
As I usually say to my patients, if they want to believe in something they don’t have to use faith, instead they must use common sense, using coherence, and people do not use coherence.
So I do not want to go so far talking about this type of bigotry in a particular country, because I do not want to be against anyone or anybody or put myself against them, I'm just taking about my opinion, I’m not invalidating anyone, I’m not criticizing, but if a daughter of mine blew herself up committing suicide and killing thirty people so-called "enemies", How could I celebrate a party at my house? As I have read in several newspapers, I have watched in TV news or from the Internet that instead of being distressed by the pain of losing a daughter, they celebrate the killing of thirty of their enemies. That kind of actions I cannot understand, it’s like eating a rotten mushroom.
Now, if I analyzed the DNA of the discoverer of a vaccine that saves many people and I analyzed the DNA of this religious fanatic, I will find that they have the same DNA; if some day they perform an autopsy of their brains, they are not going to find differences. This goes for those skeptics who do not believe in the spirit, or at least they should give a logical explanation for both cases, those skeptics who criticize what one does, I hope they give an alternative explanation of why these behaviors happen, and I do not talk about upbringing or customs because I know about people whose parents were alcoholic, the mother was a prostitute and now they are excellent doctors, parents, grandparents, great human beings, do not put the argument: 'they were raised in an evil way, their families were like that’, no, I do not accept it , I have known that it is not the case, closer than they will imagine.
Religious fanaticism is negative, I think in the Path to the Father, and I think that the pathway to the Father is related with service, which is love in action.
What many people have not understood yet, and I even said it many times, it’s not bad to repeat it once again, SERVICE is rather simple, it is very simple, it is not necessary to be a doctor in a place of war or to be like the Mother Teresa of Calcutta, although it is commendable what they have done, because if everyone thought that way most people would abstain and they will say they don’t have time or they cannot do that or they don’t have that possibility.
So, I say to all those who think that about service, which is as simple as it is. First and foremost, one must be in a good vibe, trying to be sympathetic, but not loved because of personal satisfaction or ego, saying 'this society accepts me', but acting naturally as breathing. Second, be in a good vibe. Third, being in a high tone scale, I know that on the physical plane this is not easy because we have problems every day, every day the same people around us sabotages us, even our beloved ones sabotage against us unwittingly or without realizing it, but hey, we cannot rend our skin whenever we have a problem, but trying to remain aloof, I do not want to be misunderstood, not remaining aloof from the problem, but aloof from a rise of adrenaline. That is to remain detached momentarily from the problem to maintain control of ourselves, being harmonious with ourselves and then face the problem and try to fix it, that means temporarily remain aloof.
But many people we see every day-in the religious fanaticism they live permanently- forget the foot-washing that John describes in the fourth gospel, which says 'If I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet’. You see that Jesus knelt before them and washed their feet, this is not a humiliation, this would be metaphorically a kind of service so that they know that nothing is broken within him while doing this, so when Jesus is not with us physically we may do the same '. The meaning of the washing of feet, which is still foolishly performed by the Catholic priests does not mean THAT, it meant that even the greatest spiritual man could do the simplest and the most humble work, without losing anything. Now if you look at the customs of the current bishops you will see that they do the opposite, they put the hand so that others kiss the ring in the hand, and they raise their heads arrogantly so that others incline to them, which is the opposite of what supposedly his master taught.
So it’s enough of “through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault”. A child is not guilty of anything, at most the fault belongs to the elderly who are teaching him in that way, they are allowing that others create guilt complexes in the children, they create engrams, and we have to “fight” that, I say fight with quotation marks because I do not like the word 'fight' because it could not be synonymous with violence, I would have to compete against such close-minded society, so strictly closed that does not allow other opinions, even if that opinion is the only valid opinion about service.
I will end this session by saying, so that I can complete this short session, for men and women who are afraid to do service because they say 'no, this is too much for me', doing service means to open the door and let pass an elderly person with kindness, with a smile, give up your seat to a pregnant lady or a senior on a bus, going to pay a bill to the bank and smile at the person who collects money from you, or start a conversation in a row when you're in line to pay for something and talk to people and sympathize and empathize with them, being empathetic...
Being empathic is “higher” between quotation marks because nothing is superior to nothing-to be sympathetic is the external, having a nice presence to the other, "empathic" is to empathize with the other from the outside and from the inside, it would be an inner sympathy empathizing with others, enjoy the embrace of another, that is why I always try to spread the theme about hugging and who are not afraid to hug because the hug, thanks to God is contagious, and the good vibes can be contagious in the same way that negative vibration can also be contagious.
I will end this session with a joke: Let’s not be * droopies, those who say 'how are you?', 'I am happy', looking like droopy. We're really happy, we all have losses. A few months ago I had a loss and I am here at the front, not of battle, I hate that word, in front of the Light and I am a human being like all of you with dozens of mistakes and I still make mistakes daily and I hope someday to learn. Thank You.

DIFFICULTY OF FINDING LOVE PARTNER
By Jorge Raul Olguin.
There is a very, very important thing; It’s not true that all spirits are identical, it’s not true that all people are similar. But the most important thing is that we all give importance to ourselves. Sometimes we can be shy with our friends or relatives or even when we speak to a person of the opposite sex, probably this is caused by engrams from past lives, it can also be due to circumstances of this life; it can also be the upbringing or circumstances of this present life that have happened to us, but what we have to keep in mind is that we should not seek the approval of others, we should not consider what others think about us, but we must consider what we think of ourselves.
Probably from ten people we know there will be two people who are compatible to us, there will be two people who treat us with disdain or rejection and the other six people can be indifferent to us; let’s say that no one has a guaranteed success, but we don’t have a complete defeat either. This means that until we don’t try what we want to achieve, we don’t know what will happen.
All human beings react in the same way that most mammals react, that is, in this aspect I say it, when something has our interest too much and we think that it is too much for us, then we feel shyness, we falter, we hesitate, we are not capable to achieve it, and conversely, when something is not interesting to us, we feel safe to the point of despising the person in some cases. And that's a title we give, it's a label we give. Suddenly, if you see a very pretty girl and next to her you see yourself as an unattractive, insignificant being and with that pretty young woman you don’t have the words to express the first thing you think saying: "The least she will do is to look at me because there are many other people more important than me"
Now, who says that there are other people more important than you? You are saying that! Because the importance is not given by a bank account or very expensive clothing brand; the importance is given by the inner part or ourselves. It does not matter where we work, how we look like, what matters is how we are in our inner-self.
And suddenly we meet that beautiful girl, in the outside, and then we talked to her and we realize that she is a shallow person who has emptiness inside, who speaks only about fashion; in contrast to other girl, who was labeled as ugly and unattractive, there is a person with a tremendous spirit who overwhelms us talking. Then, we were wrong over and over again.
And most of the people I know feel some fear and uncertainty when talking to a person of the opposite sex who is attractive, beautiful, because they think, they prejudge that they will automatically be rejected. However, this is not because that person is superior, but because the person who is going to face her considers inferior himself. And that's what we should not do, that's what it should not be.
Superiority or inferiority in a person don’t exist. I insist, this has nothing to do with a bank account at all; because I know many people who are judges or deputies and they are people who do not get along with their wives, their children do not respect them, they live torturing people or cheating others, then Where is this superiority? Superiority or inferiority do not exist, but being a good or bad person depends on us.
I think that the only way that the others don’t doubt of us is that we do not doubt first. I do not know if it is clear. This means that if you're going to talk to someone and you feel some embarrassment when talking to that person is because you do not approve yourself, not the other person; if that person does not know you, and he/she does not know what kind of person you are. You are going to hesitate, you can even stutter or hesitate because of the lack of security, which is in you. The other person does not know you, he/she does not know who you are.
Obviously this has to do with a role of ego. It is a tremendous low self-esteem of the person who thinks that it's a very high goal, "It's a very high 'target', too high for me." And it is not like that.
I believe that all beings have the same opportunities and on the other hand we will assume it right? Let’s suppose that you work in a badly paid job, you follow me? And suddenly you have a love rival, who is triumphant, but shallow, and that young girl chooses another person. If she chose that other person is because both of them have compatibility with each other. She is a shallow person; then that other person is shallow too. So, you got rid of a burden that has an empty brain.
With this I don’t mean that people are looking for someone deep because most of the human beings always are guided by their eyes, then, they first will look at the person appearance, if they have a pretty silhouette, if they have a pretty face, if they speak interestingly, because human beings are like that; since we don’t know the spirit of the person, the first thing we are going to look at will be the physical figure, if he/she is slender, if he/she has a body like those advertisements for "jeans" on the TV and then we'll look at the inner part.
And the opposite sex will do the same with us; they are always going to be discarding the person who has a mildly negative figure. But I have friends, personal friends, who are not very graceful in their physical shape, they are not tall or slender, however they have a tremendous success with the opposite sex. And do you know why? by something called charisma, by something called trust. They go to a party where they meet men and women they say funny things, they laugh, they have fun, they feel confident, and soon after they are surrounded by people of the opposite sex who find them nice, even if they are not handsome or anything. It does not mean that each party they are going to conquer someone, but let’s understand that everything goes through the inside part, not from the outside. Because that young man, who really exists, is called Alexander, is a person who has a lot of people who admire him, who love him, not only friends, but also emotional relationships because he is a person who has charisma.
Then everything goes through charisma, it has nothing to do with a bank account, or if you are beautiful or not, and I think that the beautiful thing happens inside of us. One has to be kind to others and be sympathetic. That’s the issue.
And there is not a person who goes to a place and everyone likes him. That does not exist. You are going to be liked by some people and others will find you indifferent. But hey, that's life, I include myself. I, as a professor, will go to place where they practice self-help as an ordinary person who looks around, and there will be people who find me nice and people that find me indifferent, and that’s okay, it does not bother me because I'm above of that, but not above in the egotistical sense, but in the sense that it seems perfect to me. These are the rules of the game.
But I insist, shyness is something internal, something from us, it’s something related to prejudice, when we prejudge ourselves. It's like when you go to a job interview and suddenly there's a line of people and you say: "Ah, but what am I going to wait? There are many talented young people here", and what do you know? You rule out yourself early?
The same happens when you go to a ballroom to dance, you'll hear the music and see a girl who is right there and you say: "No, why would I go to her with all the young people around? Who's going to notice me? And why not? If you do not try, you don’t know. There is a common saying: "The 'no' we already have it, we are going for the 'yes'." We have fifty percent of 'yes' and fifty percent of 'no' but if we don’t try we have a hundred percent of 'no'. Is that understood? That's the secret.
It does not mean with these words that suddenly, your shyness will disappear and you will wake up tomorrow suddenly as an "X-Men"; it’s not like that. Because security is being incorporated, accepting oneself, one has to accept oneself and this has nothing to do with the "family" or what we did before, or our way of life, or origin, if we are Europeans, if we are Latinos, if we are American... never mind that; what matters is the spirit, the spirit has no color, no sex, no bank account. So depends on what we are inside, how we are, our inner greatness. But greatness is not to boast, greatness is truly being humble. Now, if there’s an interesting person from another side who ignores you, showing yourself humble, it does not mean you have to change; it means that that person is not worthy. Let him/her pass. Do you understand?
So everything has to do with one, all through one. There is no formula for the affections, to win the affections. There is no formula. I simply say that a person who is "secure" will have more chance to conquer someone nice compared to a person who is insecure, because the person who is insecure is like he/she disapproves himself/herself: "No, I will not compete, how can I to compete! "But if you have not even come to the competition! What do you know if you're losing or winning? We should not auto exclude before it happens. Or perhaps I say: "Oh, but why am I going to compete in the gym if I have sixty and young people of twenty years old? They will surpass me!" I do not know. I'm going to compete, surely I will not win, but I hope not to be the last. That’s what I mean. That is the true self-esteem. Self-esteem is not about being first, but feeling important, let’s finish the task, we reach the goal, and once we reach that goal, we seek for another goal.
Religion teaches us badly. It says that ambition is negative. Ambition is not negative; What harm is there in wanting? what harm is there in having projects? There is nothing wrong. The foolish thing is the ambition, suddenly saying: "Oh, I'd like to be on a luxury cruise and pay twenty thousand euros for two months in the sea." It's okay. If you have two million, no problem, you spend twenty thousand; but if twenty thousand is all you have in your bank account and you spend it, well; you are unconscious. I have not that money, then I’d not spend it even If I had it.
Sure, exactly. Everything has to be balanced, besides we have an advantage, I say it always, we do not have a soul mate, we have a hundred soul mates; then if it’s not this one, it will be the other, someone will be; that's the most important thing. Yes, of course it is and we have no age, that is, you do not have to exclude yourself for your age: "Ah, no, but I know young people who are twenty years old and they have partners, I am old... "No, there is no age to find love, no age.
In the self-help workshops I know women of fifty years old who are separated, divorced, whatever and they find a new partner and they start a new life and it seems perfect. So we should never exclude ourselves, never.
God always gives us new opportunities. Everyone has the right and that’s fine. I always say that life gives us a rematch, but do not misunderstand me; not a revenge against someone, because that would be wrong; but a rematch with ourselves, suddenly there are opportunities that we have lost and abruptly, life, God, whatever, gives us new opportunities. You have to wait for the right moment and take those opportunities. That's the secret, and that can be achieved.

ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS
By Jorge Raul Olguin.
I consider myself a great student of the reactive mind to the point that I rediscovered in 1997 the impulsive reactive mind and in 2003 the depressive reactive mind. And obviously I did not make a good propaganda to the reactive mind because it has two fruits that are engrams and the roles of ego.
The reactive mind, as I have said it many times, was required millions of years ago because our ancestors did not have analytical mind, so they did not have the time to think. For instance, if they had to face a smilodon, they could not think ‘would it eat me? or Could I run away?’; In tenths of a second they had to flee because they didn’t have the weapons to kill the smilodon. Or if they saw a small rodent, they didn’t think ‘Will I hunt it or not?’ No. Automatically they had to pounce over it to see if they could hunt it.
As the millennia went by, those beings developed abstract thinking through the analytical mind, which is located in the cortex, unlike the reactive mind which is located in the cerebral amygdala.
But the reactive mind combined with the analytical mind can sometimes give fruits. It happens that sometimes the mechanisms are not viable, as mechanisms.
Stanislaw Grof, one of the great founders of Transpersonal Psychology was one of the rediscoverers of hyperventilation.
Hyperventilation is an agitated panting which oxygenates the brain too much. It also happens in those kids' parties when inflating balloons and they get dizzy because oxygen produces a state of dizziness. This state of dizziness, with hyperventilation produces what Stanislaw Grof called 'Altered state of consciousness.'
The altered state of consciousness can make us rediscover ourselves; because this altered state of consciousness makes us see ourselves from the outside from a different point of view and then we see things about ourselves that we didn’t find before, which we didn’t notice before.
The same effect is achieved with different drugs such as: Ayahuasca, marijuana, LSD and other drugs. But there is a very important thing for those young people, or not so young, who want to experience something. All drugs, all of them without exception, even the apparently harmless marijuana, commonly called in some cities as 'joint', destroys the mental decoder, it exterminates the neuronal system, the neuronal cluster.
Although modern science has discovered that it is not true that neurons do not regenerate, as believed since the eighties of the twentieth century, however the regeneration is minimal compared to the massive destruction caused by drugs.
Is alcohol included? Yes. Alcohol is included and now I'm going to talk about it.
Since 1967, people say the sixties - but 1967 was crucial. They rediscovered the hallucinogenic drug known as LSD. Actually these hippies, who are men and women around sixty years old, they did not seek to hallucinate; they were seeking to rediscover themselves because their message was a message of peace. It happened that, as we say in street lingo, the one who paid the check was the mental decoder, the brain. Because these hallucinogenic drugs undermined the neuronal field.
Hyperventilation fortunately provokes an altered state of consciousness without the extreme negative collateral effect of killing neurons. However, it causes another state of release of the impulsive reactive mind, and if the patient of this transpersonal psychologist who practices hyperventilation is not contained; that patient may burst into tears, even attacking his own therapist because this practice releases the impulsive reactive mind. And this impulsive reactive mind brings out the aches, pains, impotence that this person is having. And it produces a catharsis through violence in many cases. This does not happen with all drugs, because there are drugs that dope and instead of overexciting the person in violence, these drugs numb the senses.
Alcohol, without being a drug, it also produces a tremendous dependence and the younger the consumer is, the less immunity this person will have in his/her neuronal field and it can cause a diminished mental capacity by thirty or even forty percent in that young teenager who is consuming alcohol or using drugs. That person is not a complete idiot, but his/her mental reasoning is very, very reduced.
I have seen many children, and I’m not speaking about teenagers here, I mean children who are looking for altered states of consciousness through various epoxy adhesives, which in each country have different names.
What these children do not realize is that the so-called ‘glue’ provokes an altered state of consciousness exterminating cell clusters massively to the point that when they are teenagers, their cognitive function is decreased up to thirty or forty percent. They become clumsy guys who are already labeled as children with different abilities without being born in that way genetically. They are like those people due to the drug they have consumed.
Then I say, any consumption of drugs, alcohol or tobacco in a massive way is absolutely pernicious. The only thing that I could support and I hope you all understand me well because I have not finished, is a glass of red wine per day because it has antioxidant products. But for those who have no control and take a glass of wine, then two, ten, twenty, it is preferable not to drink it directly.
The tobacco, which apparently is as harmless as it is found on a counter, not only burns neurons, but also causes lung cancer, stomach cancer, esophageal cancer, laryngeal cancer...
Marijuana, which for those who smoked it may even be softer than most cigars sold in the market, it surely does not cause a cancer stage as tobacco, but it tremendously degrades the brain functions, which I call the mental decoder.
So, these altered states of consciousness that the person seeks to perceive, what they actually do is to unleash the reactive mind to absorb the analytical mind and figuratively speaking, the person leaves out of the body and he/she can be rediscovered. But to do that one does not really need hyperventilation or any drug.
I've known people who drink three or four glasses of wine and they start philosophizing, something that they would not do being sober. That's caused by alcohol, which like most drugs, frees from inhibitions and shows the person as he/she is. What happens is that there are people that find a philosophical opening and there are other people who release the violence they had contained. Notice that most alcoholics have problems due to acts of violence.
There are ways to be free from inhibitions, to find themselves without using external drugs, alcohol, or whatever; and that’s eradicating the roles of ego. Eradicating these roles of ego that bind us; that make us bigots, cowards, incapable to let us show ourselves.
Then, it’s not necessary all that is artificial because all that is artificial ends up being negative to our brain, which is part of us because our body is a unity, So we will end up paying the consequences. We, as beings or biological units will end up paying the consequences.
Very poetic the hippie person from the 1967, very poetic. But there are many beings who are fifty and sixty years old today who are a remnant of those hippies from the sixties of the last century.
The altered states of consciousness are a fraud. While my techniques called Psychoauditing and Psychointegration are techniques that I approve tremendously. And secondly, Psychointegration derives from Transpersonal Psychology.
The part of Transpersonal Psychology, which has to do with hyperventilation, I don’t approve it at all. Because most therapists do not know how to lead their patiens with this hyperventilation technique.
The best way to find ourselves is not through an altered state of consciousness because the word itself says it all; 'altered' . It does not say ‘sublime’ state.
I do not share everything Castaneda wrote. I do not share what Matus wrote. I do not agree with them fully. Most things are volatile visions caused in the mind immersed in drugs.
I do not approve at all any drugs, alcohol or any product that is used to escape. Because in the end escaping from oneself, is cowardice.
And that's a pun. Most of the people who are trying to find themselves with these products fail because what they do is to get away from themselves. But they will not admit it. They will not admit it because it’s hard for them to confront themselves.
