The Adam and Eve SINdrome

The world could indeed be conquered by goodness, and reason might prevail, if only we knew what goodness was. To rule, they—whoever they are—must, at all costs, keep us in the dark, away from such potent knowledge.

Evidence that you have not found that mysterious force of goodness lies in the way you respond to pressure and authority. The more you tremble with fear or resentment, the further you are from the source of good, and the more subject you are to the subtle intimidations and manipulations of the wicked.

Fear and resentment are the measure of your falling away from reality—reality, the original power of good over evil. Evil will always be your master, as long as you respond to it with animal emotion, the very emotion that has evolved from the mysterious fall from the power of good.

Any unreasonable response to an unreasonable pressure produces an unreasonable life, revolving around unreasonable people. Man is no longer able to respond to what is reasonable. He needs trauma to grow. He responds and surrenders to wicked pressure, because it helps evolve his pride.

To rule, you must deceive and upset; you must cause doubt and make people betray their own common sense. You must uplift and cater to egos in such a way that it causes people to follow what appears to be their own best interest—a glorious, selfish one, of course.

What happens when we find ourselves trapped outside the protection of good is about to unfold before your eyes. The process begins with men and women. It first happened a long time ago with Adam and Eve, but the evidence that it happened then and was passed down to us is here with us today, if you care to part the veil of mystery.

Haven’t you noticed that you feel most alive when you are teased, excited, frightened, or degraded? And haven’t you noticed how men are attracted to seductive, dominating women, how they submit to them for the reward of approval? Men seem to love unreasonable women, with their unreasonable affections and unreasonable demands.

Ask yourself now—do you enjoy being teased? Do you go so far as to tease yourself with fantasies of love and hate if there is no one handy to do it for you?

Indeed, a man enjoys being teased so much that he will tempt fate for it, pinching his wife’s buttocks to get her to tease him, or say some dumb thing to provoke a bully. Where true love is not present, there tease is lord.

If a woman should tempt a man with the tease of sex or the tease of cruelty, and if that man doesn’t respond with the failing of lust or the failing of anger, then she will feel safe and fulfilled with him. If, on the other hand, he encourages and takes advantage of that tease and falls down to embrace every opportunity to puff up and gratify his ego with illusions of love and the pride of judgment, then he will become a slave of the love-and-hate intrigue system where tease is lord.

Because it is conceived in temptation, the fallen nature of man requires irritation to sustain it. An effective tease destroys man’s original identity, establishing a creature nature centered around its teaser-creator.

While tease actually creates failing, the process is felt, strangely, as evolution in the mind of the victim. And so, as the soul fails through the pride of ambition, a mortal beast rises and evolves out of what was once immortal man, generating itself through the lust for the female. Instead, man ought to be regenerating himself through the love of his Creator.

Tease fixates the attention, drawing the ambitious consciousness away from the truth of its failing and dying and into the deception-based flesh existence of evolving into a creature of pride.

Through excitement, tease traps the soul and sustains it within a devolving body, in a separate existence apart from God as God itself. A man trapped in a decaying body is grounded in the woman he used and continues to use. He is unable to love and fulfill her as he should.

Responding to the appeal of the tease, the soul becomes ensnared in a creature prison with two creature-like sensitivities—the emotions of lust and hate. When either of these failings is accepted and excited and felt as a virtue, the pride is sustained in its descent into decadence. Accepting a failing as a virtue is itself an acceptance of a lie. This lie will, as a consequence, amplify the animal proclivity for lust and hate, one emotion leading into the other.

The mental condition that accomplishes this alteration of identity is called psychosis. Psychosis is a dreamy state of mind where the ego lives securely with its failing. In this state it can exist, hiding like a common criminal from the light it left behind, trying to escape and to avoid detection and destruction of its life of pride.

It is, therefore, necessary for any prideful (weak or violent) man to employ both teases of sex and violence to sustain himself in his altered state, to add change to change, while unwittingly adding escape to escape and guilt to guilt. Because of guilt, he is forever drawn away from the light toward what appears to be self-creation but is, in reality, self-destruction.

No one can recognize this process of self-destruction until he is willing to give up the selfhood of pride. Until that time, evil is seen as the servant of good, with the man drawing out the worst in a woman. Having lost the authority of grace, man finds himself trapped with a woman-boss, her power sustained through the tease of sex and the tease of cruelty.

Because of an obvious physical disadvantage, a woman’s ego survival has come down to depend upon guile to get her way or to maintain a semblance of security with a man. She holds a man through the sexual tease and its consequent failing, resentment, which aggravates a sexual failing that can now be more easily aroused and teased.

Where man once had authority through grace and love, he now must resort to animal violence to reassert his authority over woman. Here is where the woman can become converted into a submissive psychotic (like a man), addicted to the tease of cruelty and violence for her false sense of well-being and sense of becoming. The more she responds to his temptation, the more her fear (lack of faith) feeds the violent and lustful power of the beast.

When a man gives in to her tease, it makes a woman feel cheated, frustrated, and angry. So it is with a woman giving in to the violence of a man. Giving in is never love. It is weakness! It is a subtle form of use!

Rebelling against her psychotic state, the woman can reassert her authority violently with the beast evolved from her husband. And so, between the psychosis of sex and the psychosis of violence, a world of hell evolves into the home and husband and wife destroy one another.

The more ambitious a man is, the more he needs a woman in order to achieve; he needs her to console him in the failing of achievement and the failing of failing. Men on top are ruthless, as are their women; and men and women on the top rule their culture through the politics of sex and violence, utilizing what they cultivate from one another.

Families are either dictatorships or democracies. Democracies live under the rule of seduction, of sexual politics. On the surface, things seem to go well, but the exploitation of sexual politics sets the stage for violent revolution followed by dictatorships, where tyrants rule and exploit with the politics of violence. Germany under Hitler was an example of this kind of love-hate intrigue, which spilled over and out of the family and almost destroyed the world.

As long as you have any pride left, you continue existing under the spell of Original Sin, loving lust and lusting for hate, dying under the system God prepared for those who reject him. The psychotic has no choice but to model himself after the unreasonable source of his re-creation.

Psychotic people stimulate themselves with fantasies of love or fantasies of violence (judgment).The lower they sink, the more tease preys on their minds. If psychotics let go of the stimulation inherent in imagination (originally inspired by corrupt associations), their bubble would burst and lay bare their sick souls rooted and wallowing in folly and horror.

Psychotics fear waking up because their loving souls are afraid of truth and afraid to die. Remember, real death appears as life to the ego, while true life appears as dying. The light of reality slays pride in its realm of illusion, while emotion-based deception sustains the ego in its animal existence with delusions of grandeur.

Seeking out sex or violence is a soul-consuming way of life for man, a total preoccupation with death and dying as though it were life and living.

Tease is like soul food, something that satisfies the lust of the soul for the judgment that rises from feelings of love and hate. Resentment is a tasty morsel for the psychotic soul. Sin becomes an experience, a memory one can relive again and again. While the psychotic “cow” chews the cud of memory, the teaser sucks away the milk of life.

There are those professional liars and teasers who make a living out of your dying. There are those who are perpetual victims, laboring under the illusion that they are served and catered to like kings, while they are milked like cows.

Let me show you the details of how violence, in its turn, produces the hypnotic emotion of resentment, how it indoctrinates and poisons the soul, debasing succeeding generations into creature slaves subject to hell’s authority. Here then is the psychology of violence as a means of making and keeping men slaves.

The entire purpose behind cruelty is to enslave. Cruelty throws a person into a psychotic state through the victim’s own resentment, representing as it does an inherent weakness of the soul. The inability to cope with the horror of stress expresses a lack of grace, or faith. Without the response of grace (which is the response of no response at all), one is left with the response of pride that enslaves one to tease.

Slaves are created and imprisoned by the inherent weakness of their own pride. Resentment sustains pride in its animal form, as tease sustains resentment. The slave surrenders in order to spoil his master into being a greater object of hate on which the slave can model himself.

To expand the concept of enslavement through cruelty, let me say that cruelty hypnotically excites the psychotic state of fear and resentment, where the ego of the little sinner feels served by the greater weakness of the bigger sinner. Pride must be served tease in order to grow.

Life is a wretched dog-eat-dog chain gang of victims. We are all weak before the strong and strong before the weak. Because we are weak before the strong, we acquire, through failing, the character of those who corrupt us. The worst kind of taskmaster is one who is himself a slave. Through failing we learn about our weakness, but instead of conquering it, we turn around and do unto others as was done unto us. We learn to lord it over other people by using their weakness against them.

We do not develop much understanding about our slave role, because the psychotic state forbids our seeing failing as failing. With carnal knowledge evolved from our encounter with hell, we perpetuate power through suffering and cruelty. In this fashion the system of man’s enslavement of man through man’s inhumanity to man is perpetuated down through the centuries. We seem to acquire the mysteries of hell’s power by falling to it and rising again as lords over others.

Few people know much about the nature of their own enslavement, because they are so distracted—so busy becoming like what they enjoy hating. The psychotic bent for the forbidden prevents the truth from entering in and awakening the soul.

The sheer agony, the horror, of what we have become through responding to cruelty and becoming cruel makes the light of reality seem more cruel than cruelty itself. Shame and guile then compel us to stay emotionally asleep in our psychotic dream state—reality being more terrifying to the guilty than hell. Under cover of the night of unawareness, the unholy spirit takes up residence in us and we become unto others as others were unto us.

See how easy it is for me to speak in spiritual terms? How very hard it is for me to remember nonsense! I find it almost impossible to concentrate on the proliferation of garbage that is in the world and all its meaningless chatter. I am often accused of being absent-minded, because it all goes right by me. There is no room for any of it to bleed into my head. But most men’s problem is just the opposite.

All that garbage does leak into their minds, displacing understanding. Resentment—the response to violence— pushes understanding out. You become more and more sensitive to everything, and it fills your mind like water filling a sinking ship. The sanctity of your soul is torn open!

You are meant to go through life like a boat gliding through water. The boat goes through the water; the water does not go through the boat! You must go through experience; experience must not go through you.

You must not collect your nature from experience with tease and temptation, or else you will be filled with its nature. People must be awakened from the psychotic state in which the various forms of temptation have placed them.

Roy Masters—who in his 80s continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history, his internationally syndicated daily radio program Advice Line, grew up in pre-WWII England. He started his journey toward understanding human nature when as a teen he saw a stage hypnotist at a vaudeville show in Brighton. The hypnotist easily put volunteer subjects in a spell and made them do outlandish things, like dancing with a broom and forgetting their own names.

Puzzled by the hypnotist’s mysterious power, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: “Why can’t hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly?” Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice.

After several years of practice, Masters made his central and pivotal discovery about the root of people’s emotional problems, addictions and complexes. He realized that people did not need hypnosis, because their core problem was that they are already hypnotized—not by a clever stage performer, but by the stresses, pressures and seductions of daily life.

He used his knowledge to discover a way to help us become de-hypnotized, and discovered that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, that of resentment. Masters’ remarkably effective exercise, a simple observation technique called Be Still and Know—is at the core of his unmatched track record in helping people overcome even the most serious mental-emotional problems, and is the centerpiece of a successful program within the U.S. military community (“Patriot Outreach”) that is helping thousands of military personnel and their families cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
