From that Absolute state even beyond non-beingness, the consciousness manifested and beingness happened. With the manifestation of that speck of consciousness and the space that evolved from the elements, physical needs began; yet it was not until the consciousness was warped via assignment of labels and personas that the illusion of personal needs came to be accepted as real. Only one species on the planet is subjected to the warping process with such unwavering regularity. Contributing to the ongoing delusion is the fact that, as a child, you were programmed to believe in the earliest dualities taught: the “good-bad” duality and its subsequent “reward-punishment” duality. A belief in dualities and the personas they generate make fools of all persons.
Pause to find what you think you need and see that the false belief that "personal needs are real" will always generate unfulfilled desires as well. Do you “need” another person? A woman said recently during a telephone conversation that she “wanted a man in her life.” She soon saw that her belief system is that she needs a man. In that mindset, it was suggested, it will be obvious to all who cross her path that she is “needy”; the point was made that—from that posture—she will only attract the ruthless types of users who prey on the needy. Reflecting on several recent “relationships,” she admitted that is exactly what she is experiencing, over and over. She was invited to determine how much of her “need” and desire was also rooted in the belief that she was not “good” enough to make it independently on her own, that she was programmed to think that she needs a man to met her needs, and that she cannot feel “good” enough unless she is showered regularly with constant statements of male praise that would reinforce the notion that she is “good.” Reviewing the childhood conditioning applied by a male parent allowed her to see how she was being driven by her early progamming and was making no choices at all "on her own."
