Ra’s Words of Wisdom
I’ve been impressed by sound bytes from teachers over the years. Every once in a while there is something I really recognize as a real truth. Carlos Castaneda had this concept of the petty tyrant. It’s a wonderful concept.
The petty tyrant is if you’re awake and you’re here to operate correctly, then nothing in this life should be able to pull you away from that. But then again, if you’re not constantly tested, how do you know? It’s the petty tyrant that reaffirms our correctness. And Compromise is the petty tyrant. Oh, you can never get rid of it. Can you image never? You can’t, it’s just not possible. You can’t make it better. You can’t change them. It’s their definition. This is precisely the way in which they are wired. There is nothing you can do. It’s the petty tyrant. It’s always there.
If you’re operating correctly and you say “yes” to enter into a relationship with somebody, well, then watch the movie. You’re going to see that regardless of the correctness, it can be correct to be in a relationship with a petty tyrant. It’s wonderful after all. But it’s not pleasant. The maia is an interesting place, this illusion that correctness is paradise. It isn’t. Life is life. Relationships, connections with other human beings are very, very complex and difficult things. Take a look at what a composite looks like. It’s incredible what’s going on. You can’t even begin to imagine analyzing all of that. You can’t. There is so much there.
