What is EBE?
EBE® is a spiritual dharma of self-authentication based in the first paradigm in human history founded upon an ‘I feel, therefore I am’ orientation of the essence of our humanity. Redefining our essential human nature as emotive rather than as a result of cognitive or neurological causation, has the effect of radically changing almost all of the premises that drive the entire range of familial, societal, religious, cultural, and philosophical expressions of our species. EBE is designed to realistically attain four objectives over a period of several years which all forms of psychology and psychiatry, based as they are in either an 'I think therefore I am' or an 'I have a body, therefore I am' paradigm of the human condition, simply are unable to do. Those four objectives are: to emotively complete our childhood; create the capacity for noncodependent intimacy; heal the basis for all manner of addictions, and help manifest our adult passion-purpose of life.
As such, EBE, or Emotional Body Enlightenment is a rigorous spiritual practice for enlightenment of the human emotional body. It is neither a technique nor a psychotherapy, even though as a dharma it directly confronts the shadow of the human psyche and redefines the criteria for psychoemotional maturity. EBE is a long-term and extremely difficult dissolution and transmutation of the wound-based energetic and emotional layers that have been secondarily and artificially wrapped around our core goodness as sentient beings because of misunderstandings and outright errors taught to us by our conditioning cultures as to what children actually need in terms of healthy parenting. This artificial wrapping results in a strategic version of ourselves that itself must be deconstructed as we slowly and arduously molt all the aspects of our lives that are infected with inauthentic grounds of being by default until healed.
Emotional Body Enlightenment process challenges all past and current psychologic, psychiatric, new age-, and east/west syntheses of spiritual-psychological domains of activity in the attempt to help human beings become wholer and healthier, and directly confronts how all religious and spiritual traditions in history, east and west, actually prevent the most emotionally mature expression of human authenticity. As such, EBE sees five main world-wide categories of toxic paradigmatic impedance to the emergence of human emotional maturity and authenticity:
* Toxic family conditioning from emotionally immature parenting in all of our history and across all cultural expressions, that creates invisible and unconscious filters of reality that determine how we evaluate and react to all human experience, and thus result in distorted psychological, philosophical, religious, and spiritual paradigms with conditioning that seals in the distortions.
* Toxic psychological/psychiatric conditioning that subsumes the essential human emotional body within the human mental body and/or physical body, a tragic reductionism that results in disastrously incorrect diagnoses, therapeutically ineffective treatments, and deeply limited healing results in all manner of what is mistakenly called issues of mental health, and the definitions of what constitutes a functionally healthy human being.
* Toxic planetary societal patterns across all cultural expression that support conscious and unconscious strategic manipulation of others' perceptions of us.
* Toxic cultural patterns that support collectivistic philosophical, ethical, and governmental forms that demonize the sacredness of the individual as the prime human unit of life and expression.
* Toxic religious/spiritual conditioning, east and west, created by emoto-spiritually immature founders, which in all of our history has never fully honored human life in earth as an intrinsic value unto itself and not just as a pass-through temporary or dualistic existence on the way to heaven, paradise, nirvana, or enlightenment of all kinds.
EBE also offers that the core of wounding from childhood is not caused by repressed traumas or any kinds of neglect or abuse behaviors by caregivers, but by our inability to emotionally digest the pain of not having been able to feel our caregivers feel what we were feeling while we were feeling it, as children. This kind of consistent and undefended open heartedness is impossible to embody for children unless parents have healed their own emotional body congestion prior to having children.
According to EBE, this pain of our inability to feel our caregivers feel how we felt as we grew and developed, is stored as universal subpersonalities of Hurt, Anxiety, Rage, Control, Depression, Shame, Core Unworth, Core Disconnect, and a triad of accompanying defenses which create what EBE calls the Strategic Self. In this way, EBE sees our emotional body architecture as universal in the same way we all possess the same physical body architecture.
EBE teaches that the Strategic Self masquerades as who you think you really are at this moment, and is the architect of all of our addictions and medications. These are not just the common forms of alcohol, drugs, codependence, and compulsive behavior patterns most therapies target, but societally-accepted forms of living that have unconscious medicative effect in the way we relate to our intellectual capacities, marriages, intimate partnerships, careers, religious and spiritual practices, and even friends and acquaintances. Along the way, EBE thus gives us an entirely new ground for how we define and experience love, and thus how one experiences and transacts love with Self, with others, and with God. Without a true core of personal self-worth, which EBE maintains is not now possible to attain using current psychological paradigms, therapeutic practices, or spiritual attainment work, we will be forever locked out of experiencing the true range and depth of love’s countless vibrations of expression.
From a spiritual perspective, the self-love of core emotional worth manifests as a final flowering of our first three chakras, which EBE maintains traditional and modern spiritual teachers and leaders have never attained because of how traditional spiritual paradigms define the lower nature of the personal self or ego. In Theohumanity, ego is taught as real enough to inhabit fully enough to heal one's unconscious masquerade of personal selfhood. As such, until our spiritual paradigms change to include the necessity of healing and not transcending the ego with a much more stringent criteria than has been available in either psychology or western new age spiritual paradigms, no spiritual teacher or leader will ever manifest the true apex of enlightenment or God-realization. This is prevented because the master, avatar, sage, or saint remains mired in unconscious pain, conflict, and strategy covered over by Love-based or nondual Aspects of God or Consciousness. Without EBE, an enlightened teacher will only have enlightened their own Strategic Self and not their as-yet-unmanifested authentic self, resulting in all the distortions and unenlightened behaviors always exhibited by all enlightened teachers past and present, including the Buddha, Yeshua, and other well-known historical teachers.
As the first spiritual practice ever offered for the enlightenment of the human emotional body, EBE is thus not for everyone. Only those deeply frustrated by the failure of years or decades of psychological or spiritual effort to heal core issues, or those truly interested in literally changing their worlds from the inside-out, will summon the resolve to be able to bear the deconstruction of their current personality themes and life manifestations. Only in that way are we ever able to create an emotional body fit and supple enough to impart a new ground experience of life, of love, and of one’s most authentic place in the world.
