Question: My question is what is the spiritual cause of a psychopathic personality? And is there any way to help a person with that disorder?
Background: This is Wikipedia’s definition:
Psychopathy is a personality disorder whose hallmark is a lack of empathy. Robert Hare, a researcher in the field describes psychopaths as “intraspecies predators who use charm, manipulation, intimidation, sex and violence to control others and to satisfy their own selfish needs. Lacking in conscience and empathy, they take what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and expectations without guilt or remorse”. “What is missing, in other words, are the very qualities that allow a human being to live in social harmony.”
Psychopaths are glib and superficially charming, and many psychopaths are excellent mimics of normal human emotion; some psychopaths can blend in, undetected, in a variety of surroundings, including corporate environments. There is neither a cure nor any effective treatment for psychopathy; there are no medications or other techniques which can instill empathy, and psychopaths who undergo traditional talk therapy only become more adept at manipulating others. The consensus among researchers is that psychopathy stems from a specific neurological disorder which is biological in origin and present from birth. It is estimated that one percent of the general population are psychopaths.
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
I do not disagree with the definition that the psychopathic personality disorder is characterized by a lack of empathy. However, it is not the full understanding. For what is a lack of empathy caused by? It is caused by a lack or respect for the lives and/or the free will of other people. And where does this lack of respect for others come from? It can come only from the state of blindness that results from having been enveloped in the epic mindset and the epic dramas for many lifetimes.
The personal dramas can cause people to go to great length to satisfy personal desires, but a personal desire cannot cause you to lose all empathy for other people. Even if you are distressed by an unfulfilled personal desire, you still have a sense that other people could also have unfulfilled desires, and thus there is some remnant of empathy. The complete lack of the ability to know or consider the feelings of other people can only come from having engaged in the epic dramas for so long that these conditions are fulfilled:
- A lifestream is completely convinced that the ends really do justify the means. Thus, other people are simply seen as tools for the fulfillment of the goals defined by your particular epic drama. As I said, epic dramas sprang from the minds of beings who rebelled against God’s law of Free Will, and thus they are based on a lack of respect for free will and the lack of empathy that inevitably follows.
- A lifestream has become so blinded by the epic mindset that it thinks its perception is not simply a perception created by its own mental state but is the ultimate reality. In other words, the lifestream has confused perception for reality. A psychopath is absolutely sure that his or her way of looking at life is valid, perhaps the only valid way. And if all other people disagree, then that is simply because there is something wrong with them.
- A lifestream has created a personal downward spiral that has become so intense that it overpowers the person’s conscious mind, colors its perception and effectively neutralizes its ability to make free-will choices. In the extremes of such a spiral, the person acknowledges no restrictions for the fulfillment of its desires, regardless of the consequences for other people. Yet even if a psychopath is not willing to use physical violence, there can still be a complete unwillingness to respect other people’s free will. It is simply a matter of how much another person can be pushed into compliance with the will of the psychopath.
It may seem as if a psychopath who kidnaps women and tortures and rapes them is doing so to fulfill a personal desire for sex. Yet the underlying mechanism is actually an epic drama that in its own twisted way justifies this extreme measure in order to force the victims to misqualify and release the maximum amount of light, which the psychopath needs for its mere survival in the physical realm. This is usually justified as being part of some greater cause to punish women for their temptation of men or a similar kind of twisted logic.
The claim that the cause of psychopathy is a neurological disorder contradicts the statement that no medications can instill empathy. If the disorder has a mechanical cause, there should also be a mechanical measure that could restore what is clearly present in most people. Thus, the real cause is to be found in the lifestream, and one does not become a psychopath in one or even a dozen lifetimes. It takes hundreds of lifetimes in the epic mindset to reach this level of closed-mindedness.
It is perfectly true that psychopaths can blend into society and often go undetected for a long time. Yet be careful about thinking that psychopaths are those who go to extreme measures, such as violence. Many psychopaths do not go to such extremes, but use psychological forms of violence to control and manipulate others, and as such they remain undetected.
In fact, far more than 1 percent of the population have various degrees of psychopathic personality disorder. The bottom 10 percent could all be considered full-blown psychopaths, as they have little to no respect for free will and no empathy for other people in general but only for a select few. One example is a commandant of a Nazi death-camp who loves his own children as any normal father but has no compunction about sending other people’s children to the gas chambers.
In fact, it should be considered that all people can under certain circumstances be pressured into losing empathy and respect for other people’s free will. This is especially the case when people go into a negative spiral. One of the essential ingredients of a downward spiral is that the people in it will not take responsibility for themselves, and this is usually justified by appointing another person or group as the scapegoat who can now be blamed for a variety of bad things that seemingly justify why the people whose perception is colored by the downward spiral do not need to apply normal empathy or respect for free will to the scapegoat. Just look at the people who condemned me during my trial and who spat on me and mocked me while I was carrying the cross through the streets of Jerusalem. And then look at how many similar situations have taken place throughout history.
The defining characteristic of the epic dramas is precisely that it divides humanity into two separate groups, based on whatever world view or belief system justifies the epic drama. As a result, those in the “bad” group are labeled as not being entitled to normal human rights, respect or protection. Thus, those in the “good” group can do to such people what they would never do to their own. Throughout history, this has been used to justify all kinds of atrocities that the people committing them normally would not have been able to justify. Thus, this division of humanity into two distinct groups is also the defining characteristic of the psychopathic personality disorder. This division is NEVER justified based on the mind of Christ, which is why I said: “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
What is normally called a psychopath is a person who may have only one person in the “good” group (himself or herself) whereas most or all other people can be treated without empathy. Yet, as I said, most people can be lured into seeing such a division as justified by certain circumstances. For example, a large part of the American public lost all empathy with certain Muslim groups (perhaps even all Muslims) after the 9-11 incident. Even today, you see the former head of Homeland Security state that the person who attempted to blow up an airplane does not deserve the same rights as American citizens. Yet this is a man who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, which is based on the Declaration of Independence, which says that ALL men have inalienable rights.
Even people on the spiritual path can be lured by the epic mindset into creating such a downward spiral by appointing other people as scapegoats and losing their empathy. For example, the entire mindset that you have to bring forth the judgment of others can very easily distort people’s perception to the point, where they lose all empathy for the person or persons who need to be judged. Spiritual people can – depending on their belief system – have their own reasons for labeling other people as bad. For example, they may be seen as being of the devil, being of anti-christ, being fallen angels, being possessed by demons or whatever label comes out of a spiritual belief system that still has elements of dualism.
Thus, those who think they are fit to judge can no longer see that it is their own polluted perception that makes them think they are fit to judge and that the other people are fit to be judged. They judge based on their polluted perception, not based on the reality of the Christ mind (even though they may claim so). That is why I said, “Judge not that ye be not judged” and “Judge not after the appearance.” Thus, take note of my teachings on judgment given elsewhere.
Is there any way to help a person with psychopathic personality disorder? In most cases, people who have gone into the extremes of this disorder can be helped only through the school of hard knocks. And this will often happen only when they have been removed to an environment where they are surrounded by lifestreams with the same low consciousness, so they will give the knocks to each other. Nothing else has a chance of awakening them, because their perception is so polluted – and they are so sure it is reality – that you cannot reach them with any kind of arguments. In rare cases, a truly innocent person can awaken a psychopath by allowing him or her to abuse it, but those are extremely rare cases, and I do not recommend anyone trying this deliberately. A substantial portion of full-blown psychopaths will end up going through the second death as not even the ascended masters can reach them.
If you identify a psychopath in your surroundings, it is generally speaking better to get out of the way and let both the Law of God and the laws of society do their work. This is not to say that you should not report such a person’s illegal behavior to the authorities, but you should generally not try to help them unless you have professional training. And even then, extreme caution is in order, for some psychopaths are so clever in their use of dualistic logic that only a person with Christ discernment can divide the muddied waters and make it safely across. Obviously, this is one of those cases where prison or a mental institution is necessary in order to protect other people from those who have become spiritual predators, walking about seeking whom they may devour.
It is the plan of the ascended masters to expose the epic dramas and the epic mindset, which will bring about a heightened awareness that will cause many people to snap out of the epic mindset and thus overcome the belief that humanity can be divided into two separate categories. This belief is very seductive and extremely few people can handle it without coming to believe that they need to help God’s plan along by getting rid of the people who oppose it.
As public awareness is raised and more people rise above the epic mindset, the people with psychopathic personality disorder will begin to stand out more and behavior that today is considered “normal” or is undetected will be clearly seen as psychopathic. And this will gradually lead to a point where society will develop means for helping people overcome this disorder—if they are willing. In the Golden Age, there will be a combination of therapy and technology, with machines that can alter the electromagnetic properties of the brain and thus actually correct psychopathic or criminal tendencies. However, this will not become available until the risk of it being misused to “correct” political dissidents has been lessened.
