By Wade Frazier
Whether people believe in an immortal soul, or believe their existence is dependent on their body's chemistry, every earthly human can probably agree upon one idea: we all have a physical body.
Because we all have bodies, and they all have needs such as air, water, food, shelter, sex, etc., to an extent we are all "self-serving" as we care for our bodies.
Since it takes two people to procreate, and few have a tropical island to themselves or can survive alone on a mountaintop, humans interact.
To the extent humans interact, we serve each other's needs.
People are other-serving when seeing to the needs of others, and self-serving when seeing to their own.
All humans engage in both activities.
According to nearly all mystical material, that interaction is the primary reason we are here.
We evolve our souls by inhabiting this dimension, interacting with each other (including animals, plants, Mother Earth, etc.) helping and hurting each other, and living with the consequences.
Even for people who believe that oblivion awaits them at death, they can probably relate to the self-serving/other-serving dichotomy.
Constantly make decisions
Throughout our lives, we constantly make decisions whether to serve ourselves or serve others.
Infants are totally focused on survival.
Parents are (usually) totally focused on that infant's well being.
The infant is self-serving, the parent other-serving.
As with all decisions in life, especially when humans interact, the question of whom we are serving is constantly with us, and can make seemingly straightforward decisions more complicated.
Why do parents have children?
Is it to give life where there was none, passing on the blessings they have received?
Is it to breed a farmhand, somebody to exploit today and perhaps support them when old and feeble?
Is it to have built-in friends, built-in sex slaves, or a built-in retirement plan?
Is it a bid for immortality?
Do people do it in a moment of lust, not thinking or caring about the consequences of bringing a child into the world?
Is their own motivation to serve the child or themselves?
Is it both?
Is it to serve the Creator?
It can appear extremely complicated, but always comes down to whom is being served.
The love you take is equal to the love you make
There is not a single human interaction where the issue of it being self-serving or other-serving does not apply.
The ideal is getting as good as we give, being self-serving and other-serving at the same time, or balancing the scales in the end.
The Beatles sang, "The love you take is equal to the love you make."
Our motivations are not always clear to others, or sometimes even to ourselves.
Even the issue of self can become contentious.
Is the "self" the body?
What is called the consciousness?
Is the self the individual, the tribe, the nation, the universe, the soul?
Is it all of the above?
Most people probably think of the conscious mind and the body it inhabits as the “self.”
Most people on earth are mostly self-serving.
Stated another way, if all human decisions made in one day were weighed by relative scale (where helping an old lady across the street would not count as much as jumping in front of a train to save somebody's life), sorting to one-side the self-serving actions and other-serving actions to the other, the scale would tip to the self-serving side.
There is tremendous variation with each person, each day.
A nursing mother is generally other-serving when she nurses her infant.
When she is feeding herself, she is serving herself, although part of her motivation may be being healthy in order to properly care for her infant.
The Dark Path
... Those polarities can also be described as the paths of light and darkness, good and evil, etc.
Whereas the path of light is committed to truth and love, the path of darkness is committed to illusion and fear.
Ra described further dimensions of existence that pursue those paths.
It is a fascinating perspective that this essay cannot do justice to.
It provides a framework to understand interactions between beings on this plane and beings in others, how humans evolve on the physical plane, and the soul's journey.
Others have called the path of serving others the path of service to self through others.
Ra said that the dark path leads to a dead end of sorts.
The study of "that which is not" is valid, with many valuable lessons learned along the way.
As that path is progressed, higher levels of power and understanding are attained.
Along the light path are constantly increasing levels of expansion and integration into Creation.
Along the dark path there are constantly increasing levels of concentration and a withdrawal into one's perceived self.
Along the light path there is an eventual reunification with the source of creation, the ultimate coming home.
The source of creation is love, and it is the force that created and sustains not only this universe, but also all of creation.
Because love is the power of creation, love is the game humans are learning, because we are learning to be creators here at earth school. 
There are no spiritual lightweights on the planet at this time.
This is an extremely challenging place to be.
As the light path leads to a wondrous reunion with the Creator, those at the dark path’s highest level also realize that a reunification with The Source is its next step.
When a highest-level dark path being attempts that reunification, it gets a rude awakening: the dark path does not lead home.
As it is the study of "that which is not," the entire path is ultimately one of illusion, and self-deception.
As that highest-level dark path entity "knocks on God's door," God’s greeting is approximately:
I am glad you are here, but I have news for you.
You are a being of light, not darkness.
You trod your path because I gave you the freedom to choose it.
It was not real, not in the way you might think.
I am proud of you, my child, but there is an important lesson your path has not taught you, the lesson you must learn before you can come home.
You cannot fit in here, as much as I would like you to.
You would not be able to stand it.
I created you and everybody else.
I love you, as I love all my creations.
Your path has led you here, but loving yourself, while an important lesson, is only part of the journey.
The journey is not complete until you love all of Creation, as I do.
You have racked up quite a tally.
You incurred many debts to others as you failed to love them, and only loved what you thought of as yourself.
As you failed to love others, you also failed to truly love yourself.
You owe yourself a great debt that you can only pay while serving others.
I have a deal for you.
All the mastery, all the wisdom, all the greatness you attained on your path, which is indeed impressive, you can trade in for an equivalent status on the path of light.
From that exalted rank of light, you will labor long to settle your debts, make right your wrongs, and bring as much light to Creation as you earlier brought darkness to it.
I think you will find that loving others is highly rewarding, not only to yourself, but also to others.
You have a choice.
You can stay where you are, at the dark path's highest level, where you can progress no further, because there is nowhere else to go.
Or, you can accept my offer, working magnificently with me, engaging in fabulous work on behalf of Creation, and when you have balanced your scales, you can come home, and it will be glorious." 
[Note: The idea of God as a 'Being' can be considered as fictional as this story Kewe TheWE.biz however the story serves its purpose]
Dark Path is exploiting others
The dark path is self-serving, and a primary goal is exploiting others.
They see others as there to serve their needs.
While light path beings live by love, the dark path motto is "look out for number one."
They believe that looking out for themselves is the only credo worth living by, and they see light path beings as naïve or foolish.
Their afterlives are not pleasant.
The dark path is an inverted view creation.
Put another way, the dark path is an attempt to become the Creator without love.
It is an impossible dream, but such is the dark path's folly, the study of that which is not.
What goes around comes around, and dark path initiates realize that God created with love, and God's creations love it back.
There is a feedback effect, whereby the love of God's creations also help sustain God.
In the inverted dark path perspective, they think that manipulating others is how creation functions.
They think love is weak, better dispensed with.
Fear is "what it is all about" to them.
They have yet to realize that love is the greatest power, and indeed the only power.
God's creations ideally give love back to God as freely as God gave it to them.
In the dark path's inverted perspective, they believe the exhilaration of the fear they experience is Creation's essence, and they induce fear in others, receiving a feedback effect, nourishing themselves.
They think God does something like that.
Their understanding is inverted.
Fear is the absence of love, and in the dark path's inverted logic, they feel if they can inspire fear in others, they are becoming creators.
As stated in Lake's The Extraterrestrial Vision, those dark path initiates are acting appropriately, in light of their beliefs.
She summarizes the situation on earth regarding the committed self-servers with:
Self-servers are as diverse as any random group of people.
They work in many different professions, but are particularly drawn to ones involving power.
Much of the corruption in business and government is perpetrated by self-servers, many of whom are highly intelligent.
They are never found in service professions, except as impostors or con men who prey off those in need.
They have no sympathy for the needy, because they believe everyone should be self-sufficient.
They believe that those who can't take care themselves will learn to take care of themselves by being taken advantage of.
Consequently, they feel a spiritual duty to take advantage of the weak. 
Nourished by fear
... Some dark path goals are inciting fear in others and recruiting others to their path.
They are nourished by fear, in a pathological way.
In Barbara Marciniak's seminal Bringers of the Dawn, in chapter eight is another perspective of the dark path.
It appears that dark path entities that have evolved beyond physical plane realities, such as Genghis Kahn, are helping humanity stay in fear, because fear creates an energy that nourishes them.
A humanity in fear, bathed in violence and misery, is something they thrive on.
Humanity has proved a most productive herd for negative emotional "nectar."
In a first-person account by Michael Roads, in his mind-blowing Into a Timeless Realm, he saw those beings that keep humanity in misery because they thrive on it. 
Those parasitic beings did not create the conditions of human misery humans largely did that to themselves but they capitalized on it and furthered it, using deceptive and secret tactics.
Michael Topper and his wife echo those themes in Topper's peculiar prose.
Topper's perspective is decidedly mortal, yet interesting.
The theme of dark path beings thriving on fear, even to the point of inducing fear in people, extracting chemicals that fear produces in the human body, then bathing in it, are in Topper's writings. 
What Is the Relevance to My [Wade Frazier] Work?
To bring this essay back to "earth," how does it relate to my [Wade Frazier] work?
The self-servers on this planet are in it for themselves.
They feel a duty to exploit others.
Evil is their business, profiting from the misery and exploitation of others.
This site documents many extremely dark situations, and many people refuse to believe that people will actively and consciously create situations where others suffer and die.
They cannot believe that people could act so "diabolically."
Dark path initiates depend on that denial.
Deception and secrecy are their tools
Because the dark path is the study of that which is not, deception and secrecy are their tools, which is largely how the U.S. government operates.
In the end, the dark path folks’ greatest victims are themselves, and the most deceived chumps of all are themselves, completely misunderstanding who and what they are.
The greatest deception is self-deception.
It takes two to tango, and while dark path beings play their games, they actively deceive others, and their greatest victory is not forcing people to do their bidding, but having them freely choose to.
Dark path initiates know that few will consciously let themselves be used by dark path practitioners.
So, they must deceive people into serving dark path interests instead of their own.
That is not an easy trick.
Most people are consciously committed to neither path.
They worship comfort.
Most merely try surviving.
A full belly, a roof over their head, and their addictions sated are primary goals of the vast majority of humanity at this time.
Most people can be called "good," because they will try doing the "right" thing if it does not cost them too much, and usually will not go out of their way to hurt others.
Most Americans would return a wallet they found on the ground, provided it did not have too much money in it (recent research in 2001 shows that about half of all Americans will return that wallet; I [Wade Frazier] was being too optimistic).
My experiences ruefully showed me that it goes little further than that, however.
How can the dark path folks exploit people, while having them believe that their actions serve the common good?
Dark path initiates commonly use a singularly effective tactic: enslaving people, while telling them they do it to protect them.
When the FDA relentlessly wipes out cancer cures that actually work, while throwing doctors into jail, or Dennis is thrown into jail on fabricated charges to prevent free energy from happening, or a life insurance company that specializes in selling term insurance because all other policies are scams is ruthlessly attacked by police state tactics, the stated rationale is always "protecting the public."
Protecting the public is the world's largest protection racket, and the vast majority of humanity pays dearly for such “protection.”
Dennis was fond of saying, "Put a man in a big enough cage, and he thinks he is free."
Barbara Marciniak's Pleiadians say that the most effective prison is one where its prisoners do not realize that they are in prison, and those prisoners will believe almost any clever lie, as long as believing it keeps their bellies full.
The dark path is dark indeed.
In the family of light, ties of mutual love bond them together.
In the family of dark, it is mutual self-interest.
They work together not for love of each other.
They might experience some light and often-phony camaraderie, but they generally fear and hate each other.
Each realizes that they cannot subjugate an entire planet or galaxy by themselves, so they need comrades of like mind.
They are always watching their backs around each other, as they know that everybody is in it for themselves.
There can only be one Emperor of the Universe, and they all want the title, so the kinds of power plays that occur in their circles most would rather not hear about.
In addition, their conspiracies and game plans are always falling apart, because they cannot work in unison very effectively.
They are all vying for power with each other.
The idea of following orders is a dark path invention, used to keep those below them in the hierarchy in line.
Young men will never willingly kill people in war
Most young men would never willingly kill people in war, if left to themselves.
Consequently, a system has been devised to glorify violence, dehumanize the "enemy" (young men just like them), shield them from war's realities until they are on the battlefield, condition them to obey orders and call them cowards and even execute them if they do not obey.
Wars are always created and egged on by dark path initiates, with the masses falling into line as they have given away their responsibility to the "powerful."
A twist on the “protection” racket is having people support violence to “save” somebody, or “get” the bad guys, such as riling up Americans to cheer the bombing of Iraq, Yugoslavia or Afghanistan.
The dark path folks must laugh heartily as the American people fall for it each time, as those cheering Americans believe they are helping the people they bomb.
Einstein once remarked that human stupidity is one of the truly infinite aspects of our universe, and dark path members eagerly exploit it.
They play to people’s sense of helplessness and feelings of victimization by selling violence as a remedy for the world’s ills, as if there were no other choice.
The demonization of Saddam Hussein, Manuel Noriega or Slobodan Milosevic (or America’s demon of the hour, Osama bin Laden) is merely state propaganda, and the masses fall for it every time.
Indonesia’s Suharto makes them look like choirboys, but he always did our bidding, so he was a respected ally who we heavily armed.
Hussein, Noriega and bin Laden all were lauded U.S. allies while they did our bidding, and became demons when they failed to.
The dark path folks smile every time people support violence, as they know it always leads to more violence, and they truly get thrills out of bloodshed (as long as it is not their blood being shed) and the suffering of others.
Millions of people cheering massive violence wreaked against distant peoples is a dream come true for dark path initiates.
"Power" as discussed in this essay is not true power.
Love is the only power.
The earthly power of controlling and manipulating others to one’s will is counterfeit power.
It is stealing the power of others.
True power comes from within.
Detonating a nuclear bomb is "powerful" in its own way, but is a pale and dark imitation of real power, which the dark path initiates have yet to learn.
Do not want to be responsible for their lives
Val Valerian, in his Matrix III, establishes broad categories to classify humanity into, with rough percentages.
It relates somewhat to the light-dark polarity. 
Valerian did not present his data to expressly deal with the integrity issue, but it has a relationship and gives rough numbers.
Valerian sees it in terms of those who give away their personal power.
It can also be seen as serving themselves.
Most people do not want to be responsible for their lives, and arriving at a new level of integrity and taking back their responsibility has a price.
When faced with the decision to be responsible for one's life, more than half of humanity at this time readily falls back into complacency, easily controlled, giving up their freedom for comfort and "security."
As Ben Franklin once observed, those who give up their freedom for security deserve and receive neither.
About a quarter of the human race feels there is something wrong with the picture, but shuffle along with the herd nevertheless.
About ten percent know there is something not quite right, and have tried to do something about it at some level, but were repressed in one way or another and still shuffle along with the herd.
A few percent have figured it out and have broken away from the herd.
About five percent of humanity are committed self-servers, and actively and knowingly use others for their own ends.
Those numbers are handy and relate to the integrity issue.
Those few who have broken away from the herd are mainly other-serving.
The ten percent have tried to be other-serving and are to a degree, but have been beaten back into line.
About ninety percent of humanity makes up the "Great Herd" and is easily manipulated.
The five-percent manipulator class is composed of those on the dark path.
Belly full of the pain and suffering
Those are general categories and percentages, and are only for illustration, not to be taken literally.
That category of five-percent dark path initiates has various levels of accomplishment and commitment.
The dark path is not forever, either.
Eventually, all dark path initiates wake up.
Not many reach that highest level of dark path evolution and meet the Creator, to be told they cannot get home on their path.
Most figure it out before then, getting a belly full of the pain and suffering that attends their path, and eventually revert and pursue the light path.
An initiate who attains the "mastery" of the dark path, equivalent to a Genghis Kahn is far less than five percent of the population.
A Genghis Kahn is one in many millions.
On the light path, a Jesus or a Buddha attained levels of mastery that have proven to be one in billions on planet earth, so far.
Will not accept personal responsibility for their lives
Being other-serving is the ideal, and the vast majority of humanity loves other-servers, partly because they get something out of the deal, and the 95% of us not on the dark path can be inspired by their example.
That ninety-percent of humanity will not accept personal responsibility for their lives, and rather easily give it up.
They look for other-servers to give it to.
That is their great folly.
Other-servers realize that nobody should give their power away, and usually do not seek positions of earthly power.
As Lake's ET friends stated, the self-servers seek power and can be found flocking to positions of power as moths flock to a light bulb.
The self-servers engage in a charade.
They masquerade as other-servers, asking the masses to give them their power (responsibility) so they can serve the "common good."
As Dennis has said, they serve humanity all right, they serve up a plateful that they feast on every night.
It is not always the case, but those in positions of power in today's world are largely self-serving.
There are more other-servers in the CIA than Ralph McGehee and the few other CIA employees who spoke out as he did.
Ralph's intelligence was not what enabled him to figure it out, but his pure heart.
The CIA psychologically screens its fieldwork applicants, trying hiring people who blindly follow orders.
For every Ralph McGehee who took the high, hard road, there were numerous other CIA employees who at one level or another eventually saw the big picture.
Some quickly became disillusioned and quit the CIA, getting a "real job" or becoming a missionary or other undertaking designed to serve humanity.
Others developed a gradual uneasiness over the years as their experiences contradicted their indoctrination.
At some point, the CIA ceased to be fun and they left.
Others gradually felt the pain of having their ideals and reality clash, but developed coping behaviors such as drinking and other dysfunctions.
Some devoted their spare time to charity work or something else they saw as truly helping.
Others figured it out as Ralph did, but did not have the courage to take his path.
As with Ralph, they were too far along in their careers to practically change into another.
They watched the calendar, counting the days to retirement, drinking themselves into a stupor nightly to live with their situation, exemplifying a life of quiet desperation.
In his In Search of Enemies, John Stockwell wrote about CIA case officers who return to the CIA headquarters at Langley from abroad (as Ralph McGehee did) and reception they receive:
Case officers often come back unnoticed, drained by their experiences and haunted by their consciences, by the suspicion that the things they had done were pointless as well as cruel.
They rarely have the same sparkle and drive on the next assignment or the next.
In offices throughout headquarters were those who had given up, who were walking out their years before early retirement, becoming grey fixtures like safes and Xerox machines." 
Some would speak up in the CIA's halls, trying to reform it or openly question the CIA's stated mission, only to be quickly swatted down or ostracized.
If they stayed in the CIA, their lives were made unpleasant.
Very few would wake up as Ralph did and do something about it, taking great personal risk to tell the world what was happening.
Ralph is around one in twenty thousand.
During World War II, there were virtually no German soldiers who spoke out against the Final Solution.
The herd does not like having its self-serving illusions shattered
There are also CIA employees who see the situation exactly as Ralph does, and are supremely happy.
They are dark path initiates, crave positions of power, and love being on the "winning" side.
How many in the CIA’s ranks are like that?
It is probably ten percent at most.
The others engage in many sophisticated rationales for their actions.
To one degree or another, they have had the opportunity to see what Ralph saw, but prefer to not.
They do not want to believe they are serving darkness, and engage in many games of denial to protect their consciences.
McGehee's CIA associate who was assigned to work with him on censoring his book thought McGehee should be taken out and shot.
He believed McGehee was a traitor to the noble cause.
That man was a prime example of how the masses react to a Ralph.
Ralph represents a shattering of the mass illusion, and the herd does not like having its self-serving illusions shattered.
The emperor may be stark naked, but few want to hear it.
In an earlier time, Ralph may have become a victim of mob violence, nailed to a cross or have some other grim fate.
Many years later he may have become a posthumous candidate for sainthood, but in America, there are other ways to deal with Ralph.
The most effective method is denying him access to the podium.
If his voice is a mere whisper next to the trumpet blare of propaganda, and he is discredited with lies, few will hear his voice or heed it, and few want to anyway.
Everybody wants to believe they do good deeds, and do not take kindly to being told otherwise.
Ralph has been actively spied on and subjected to a campaign of intimidation over the years as the CIA tried silencing him, quite illegally.
In 2000, the CIA finally succeeded in silencing him.
In 2004, John Perkins, after years of soul searching, spoke out from the privatized middle management of the empire.
That is the point regarding spirituality and how it relates to my [Wade Frazier] work.
As the Bible says, many are called and few are chosen, and the world's fate rests in few hands.
It does not have to be that way.
The forces of darkness easily manipulate humanity.
The relatively few committed light workers are trying to wake us up, so we do not stampede over the nearby cliff.
The dark path is not easy to tread.
They are continually trying to navigate between enslaving humanity and destroying the planet, which would end their racket.
They want alive and terrified slaves, not a destroyed planet, but it is not an easy tightrope to walk.
[Terrified slaves until the population becomes too unwieldy, as now, then mass population reduction is in order Kewe TheWE.biz]
Dark Path Initiate
Mr. Deputy is a dark path acolyte.
He is fairly accomplished, but not in the dark hierarchy's upper echelon.
He is a soldier, following orders and making a good living by preying upon others, doing his part to keep humanity in chains, posing as a “public servant.”
He may not realize the full implications of his actions, but even if he did, they probably would not affect him, other than feeling good about a job well done.
Until people encounter their mentality, that may seem to be going too far.
Dark path initiates rely on the denial of the average person.
People do not want to believe that those in positions of power are self-serving, because they have given their power away to them.
Therefore, they often go to great lengths to stay in denial about the state of affairs, although the effort they can expend in battling their cognitive dissonance can reach surreal levels.
There is reason to be optimistic about the future.
If enough people make the effort to simply choose the light, not because it will win, but because it is good, a great age of light, love and healing awaits us.
The Bible describes the Thousand Years of Peace.
Native Americans have called it Paradise Restored.
Some call it the New Age, and various cultures have other terms for it, but we are not there quite yet.
We also might destroy ourselves.
If we do, either through warfare, environmental destruction, or both, we will continue our incarnation cycles, but on another planet.
Michael says that if we do, we will probably choose a life form that cannot manipulate its environment, dolphins and whales being examples of ensouled species that cannot destroy their environment.
We probably would have no opposable thumbs in our next attempt to get it.
One reaction to that notion is that if we did something like that, we will not have learned our lesson.
The truly happy ending would have us finishing our incarnation cycle in a life form that can manipulate its environment, and finally learn the lesson of living in harmony with it.
That would be the ideal, but Michael says the ideal is rarely attained on the physical plane, and very few wrap up their incarnation cycles by living the life of a Jesus.
Our physical lifetimes do not end until we enjoy being here, loving the trip.
Then we graduate to other adventures.
A Spiritual Perspective by Wade Frazier continues
Note from Kewe
Within the Spiritual Perspective by Wade Frazier are comments about Silver Mind Control as it was previously called, now known as The Silva Method or Silver UltraMind System, and other teachers and channellers.
I am not a proponent of any group that charges money and do not recommend any.
Usually you can do as much and more by developing your own techniques at home, without any assistance from a group, which can hold you back with their biases.
You will receive much greater satisfaction developing your own techniques at home and will be helped from the other side if you ask for assistance from your guides, those who have assisted you through your life to the present.
