How to heal myself

Nothing can be created from beyond the mind. Illness, disease, and dysfunction arise from the mind and only appear to be of the body because this is the realm where physical observation is possible.

Only the mind can create, because spirit has already been created and the body is a learning device for the mind.

The body is merely a “learning device”, much as the world is also a field for learning. Creation cannot take place in the body, nor can it occur on the level of spirit. Spirit has already been created, whole and perfect. Nothing can threaten spirit and nothing can be added to it. Therefore:

Inducing the mind to give-up its mis-creations is the only application of creative ability that is truly meaningful.

Release the mind from fear to unleash the perfection of spirit. Fear—and any action arising from fear—is error. This is what must be corrected. The opposite of fear is love. Love—and any action arising from love—is the source of all miracles. Healing is therefore not a miracle; rather, it is the result of the miracle which has already occurred. The miracle is a mind absent of fear.

Whenever you are afraid, you are deceived.

Only when you are rid of fear are you are awakened. A mind without fear creates freedom, abundance, beauty and bliss. There are no sinners; only the fearful. Fear is merely an error and it is correctable. When the correction happens, the mind is a wonderful tool of creation. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How to deal with insanity and dysfunction.

In The Power of Now , Eckhart Tolle writes, “The study of madness isn’t enough to create sanity.” To the contrary, looking at madness moves one even more deeply into madness. By taking dysfunction seriously, you make it real.

He continues, “The mind, itself, is not dysfunctional. It is a wonderful tool. Dysfunction sets in when you seek yourself in it and mistake it for who you are.”

Who you are, of course, is the silent observer of your mind. You are the consciousness beyond the words, thoughts and form. Becoming aware of your real identity and learning to live from the perspective of consciousness is the path toward healing, health, happiness, meaning, truth, love, joy, peace, I can continue…but these are just words. What you want is to feel good, so look beyond the mind and you will find it. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

There is a crack in the system.

While we live in a system that is designed to domesticate and enslave us through reward and punishment, the creators of this system have also given us the choice to be free. We need only understand what freedom is and it is ours.

Freedom of religion or belief started with the U.S. Constitution and has since become an international human right. The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads:

30

Religious freedom, including any form of spiritual belief system, is freedom. Freedom and consciousness is the same thing. A person cannot be free without spiritual awareness. That’s because a person who is not conscious is dominated by ego. A person who is dominated by the ego needs threats, punishments, laws, and centralized authority. In other words: social and economic systems were designed to protect us from the spiritually unaware.

In the 227 years since the First Amendment, we have failed to understand what freedom is and how to access it. Let me get very specific: if you are doing spiritual or religious work, then your organization is legally classified as a charitable or religious not-for-profit (in the United States, a 501(c)3). Under this classification, the organization is not subject to regular income / expense reporting, not subject to paying tax, and has the right to free speech and free assembly. You are essentially left alone by the government. 

In other words, the Consciousness Revolution has already been given full permission and legal status. We need only define faith and charity beyond the stale notion of passively sitting in a church once a week listening to a preacher.

I’ll get even more specific: now we declare a spirituality, religion (i.e. organization) that includes creative pursuit and service to others (karma yoga). The right to assemble includes the right to serve each other, even to transfer value between members of a group, to connect with and love each other without the threat of interference. Awareness of our true identity, our God-essence is the ultimate religion. We who are awakened are free to practice our faith.

A perfect example of this is the “I am” mobile app, which is currently under development. We have already been granted 501(c)3 status and our intention is to create the infrastructure for the consciousness revolution. The app removes the barriers between people, allowing us to connect freely and serve each other. It also includes a cryptocurrency to freely store / trade value, as well as daily spiritual teachings. This is full decentralization. The information revolution is about to give way to the consciousness revolution.

This is a shift away from religions of passive faith within a system of slavery. Now we escape the ego and claim the freedom that has been our legal right for hundreds of years.

Perhaps the ruling elite have long understood something that we are only just becoming aware of: a person who awakens has the right to be free. A fully-conscious person is not a threat to anyone and no longer need be bound by the institutions that others depend upon. We are perfect love, we are giving and creative, and freedom is our natural state. There is a crack in the system and the light is about to shine through. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


The world is about to be awakened.

When we stop believing in the lies, unreality ends. We don’t need to fight nor defend against anything external. We each started as perfect and complete the moment we were born.

I am. You are. We are. All authority comes from within our already perfect and fully-complete selves.

Others falsely claim authority over you and you believe it. We live in a world that manipulates and controls us through punishments, rewards, and an ongoing stream of false promises and terrifying threats. We have learned well to distrust each other and to deny our authority over ourselves. Long ago, we have fallen. For the thousands of years since, humanity has been enslaved—but enslaved by nothing more than lies. Now we look within and we remember who we are.

More people than ever since the dawn of history are awakening. This is the consciousness revolution. Its truth and power comes from within. Truth requires no debate because it is self-evident. Now we have faith—which is nothing other than belief in self.

If something is true, it cannot be threatened or changed. Therefore, nothing can eliminate the truth that is inside your perfect, fully-complete self. Together we will find it and we will live there in faith.

The world is about to be awakened. When we stop believing in the lies, unreality ends. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How can I find acceptance and inner peace?

Something happens to you. Then the voice in your head judges the event as good or bad. You like it or can’t deal with it. It goes to your head or you seek escape. Your emotions take over and your head begins to spin with insane thoughts.

This is how your ego tricks you into believing that it is real, that the ego is your identity, that you must believe in it and obey it. When something happens that attacks your ego, you then consider it bad. When something boosts the ego, you then consider it good. As a result, your life is a roller-coaster of ups and downs (mostly downs). You believe you will be happy someday, when you have everything you desire. But the ego’s mantra is “seek but do not find.” No ego has ever attained lasting happiness.

By giving your ego control, you are assuring yourself of ongoing suffering and misery—which is only temporarily relieved by moments of escape inevitably bound to collapse. This is what the ego does. To find what you seek, it is necessary to escape the ego entirely. This is the only path toward happiness, true success, abundance, love and inner peace.

Instant and eternal happiness is found in inner freedom from external conditions. This is inner peace. Freedom from external conditions. Whatever happens in the world, whatever happens to you, it doesn’t touch you. You know who you truly are and you cannot be threatened. From this viewpoint, your life flows differently.

Now you accept, then act. Now you have made the present moment your friend and ally, not your enemy. Whatever is happening is happening. It is supposed to be happening because it is happening. You can learn to accept it without judgement or negative thoughts—which lead to fear and ego-dominance.

By escaping the ego, you are untouched and are living in a state of inner peace. Now, you can easily understand the reality of what is happening and react to it. Not because it matters all that much what the outcome is, but because the purpose of your life is to spread love, peace, and consciousness. By responding from this place, this is what you do as effortlessly as breathing. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

It is as it is.

What is perfect love?

The opposite of love is fear. Fear is darkness, love is the light. Darkness cannot exist in the presence of light.

Imagine your physical self—your body and mind in this space and time—is like the inside of a wooden box sitting in the field on a sunny day. You have been taught your whole life that boxes should stay closed, so you are locked tight. It is dark inside. Nothing comes in and out. You are bored, hungry, thirsty, and afraid of what exists outside the familiar dark space.

You believe that there is a big world out there, filled with sunlight, fresh water, beautiful sights and sounds, and delicious food…but you cannot see it, feel it, hear it, taste it or drink it. It is all around you, abundant, but because you are closed it feels out of reach. You are in a state of lacking, and it is only because you have chosen darkness and locked out the light.

We have been taught, conditioned since a very young age, to stay in this darkness. We are told that, if we do what we are supposed to, one day we will be rewarded. That day never seems to come, and when it does we don’t know how to enjoy it from within the darkness.

To awaken is to just open the lid. The warm sunlight shines through and the darkness of fear melts away in an instant. Now you can see, hear, taste, and touch all of life and you realize that it is all here for you. There is nothing to fear because there is no lack of anything when you are open.

Fear arises from separation. Separation is the belief that you are on your own, incomplete, disconnected from the oneness of everything. In this state, you believe that there is something you need that you lack. You were taught separation—we all were. But it is unreal.

How can you be separate from others when we all share the same consciousness? When you find out that you are consciousness, which is the same thing as love, which is the same thing as freedom, which is the same thing as oneness, which is the same thing as abundance, which is the same thing as God—then you realize that you already have everything because you already are everything. Nothing in the physical realm of form matters anyway, and so there is nothing to fear. Unlock yourself, open the lid, and accept all that comes. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

“All aspects of fear are untrue. You made fear, and you believe in what you made. It is true for you because it was made by you.” -A Course in Miracles : Combined Volume

What are the benefits of meditation?

Here’s a paradox: freedom requires structure. Without structure, you have no defenses against the world. You will be beaten down and defeated by a system that is designed to exploit you. If you would like peace, love, joy, health, happiness, and freedom in your life then you will need a daily practice. Meditation is essential.

By meditating at least once a day for at least 15-20 minutes, a crack will open and the light will begin to shine through. Meditation trains you to observe your mind, to shut it off for at least a few moments at a time, and to stop clinging to the external. Meditation is the practice of fully-being. You are fully-aware of nothing other than the present moment. You find out who you really are.

It doesn’t matter so much how you meditate. You might simply find a guided meditation online and go back to it every day. Find something you like, make it yours, and make it fit your life. Maybe this sounds exciting, but it isn’t. There won’t be any drastic changes at first, no fireworks, no breakthroughs, no revelations. But if you do it every day, then you will slowly awaken and your life will change. The drama will be gone. Life gets easier. You will find yourself in the flow.

You want to feel good. You want to be prosperous, successful, liked by others, and valued for who you are. You want a beautiful life filled with love, peace, and joy without the negative drama. So there are certain things that must be done each day. Eat well, get enough sleep, exercise, meditate, and connect with some type of spiritual content even if only for a few minutes each day. If you would like more detail about a life structure that supports freedom and awakening, you can read my book Belove: How to end pain by escaping your ego.

By connecting with your true identity each day, by growing stronger, getting healthier, and by a constant commitment to feeling good; you acquire the strength needed to access heaven on earth and live there. By neglecting a healthy structure, you allow the forces of the world to determine your reality. Your choice. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


How to stop judging good and bad

What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and is always now?

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle

Your mind wants control over reality. The voice in your head tells you what is good or bad…what you hope will happen and what should be avoided. Most people believe that the voice in the head is rational, that it should be taken seriously. In truth, it is insane to trust in the mind because the mind doesn’t know what it wants and has no power to get it.

To trust your mind is to live in a state of confusion, struggle, and turmoil. You struggle to “make up your mind” about everything. You imagine what will make you happy in the future; then come the strategies for how to get it and the sacrifices that follow. Yet nothing ever goes according to plan. Every path you take leads to what you did not expect. You struggle to move in one direction, but life resists your plans and takes you in another. Even if you manage to get what you want, it doesn’t make you happy and you quickly change your mind about it.

People who are mind-dominated and purely rational are not happy. They are often unsure, paralyzed, stuck somewhere, lost, and ineffective. Lost in illusions of past and future, believing of what should be or should not be, the present moment is only an obstacle. Yet the present moment is the field where everything exists and everything happens. This, here and now, is where we need to be alive. Be the awakened one, and life immediately starts working for you.

Now your function is not to judge or to control reality; rather, merely to accept it without judgement or emotion. You have no power to shape reality; rather, your job is merely to accept it and respond to it. You don’t have to find your path, life gives you your path. Embrace it without the concepts of good or bad and then a full letting-go as the next moment unfolds. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How to create abundance

Life is a natural cycle of giving and receiving. When we fail to give, we break the cycle and make receiving unnatural.

In The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life, Deepak Chopra looks at the way cells behave in our bodies. The functioning of cells within the organism is no different from the way all life functions, and we are like individual cells within the larger human body. Looking at the natural functioning of life provides an excellent model for how we are meant to live.

Cells must fulfill their function or parish. For cells, selfishness is not an option. Withdrawing, or refusing to communicate, is not an option. Going it alone is not an option. Being aggressive is not an option. Being an outcast is not an option. Over-consumption is not an option. Cells that take on these traits will either parish or become cancerous; ultimately destroying the entire organism.

When we imitate the behavior of healthy cells, we thrive and experience natural abundance. The more perfectly we are connected to the entire organism, the better we serve humanity and nurture the planet. This is our natural state, and living from this place brings the beautiful energy and the feeling of bliss that comes from simply being alive. Do not let the world tell you that selfishness, greed, aggression, anger, and snobbery is in any way desirable or is an expression of freedom.

Life is filled with endless paradoxes, and one of them is this: freedom and abundance is found in service, in giving, in creating. Living in alignment with life itself is freedom. Be life and everything flows naturally. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How to learn to open up and learn to trust

“Love is the experience of unity. Love is the ecstasy when the walls between two people crumble down, when two lives meet, when two lives unite.” – Osho

You want perfect love in your life, so allow the possibility of perfect love in your life. Simply drop your barriers to the other. How many couples resent each other, withhold truths from each other, keep thoughts and desires hidden? This is not love, this is life without freedom and it is worse than being alone.

Love is the unguarded unleashing of everything you are, combined with full acceptance of the other. The energy of love flows when two people create a space in which everything is possible and in which everything is accepted.

If you want boundaries in your relationships, then you do not want love. If there is anything about yourself that you are unwilling to share, then you are unwilling to experience the joy and bliss of love. If there is anything about your lover that you cannot accept, then you are saying “no thanks” to his or her love.

If you are afraid to trust, then you value aloneness over love. If you are closed off to the possibility of sex, you are refusing the seed of love and choosing the misery of separation over the bliss that is within reach. You don’t have to do anything with a person unless you are inspired with irresistible passion, but if you want love in your life then you do have to be open to the possibility of acting on passion.

You will not find love because you look hot, have a huge bank account, or drive the perfect car. Projecting image will isolate you. You will become untouchable and, therefore, untouched on the level of the soul. Forget the makeup, put down the sunglasses, smile, say hi to someone, talk about your true feelings and drop the agenda. Give others the space to do the same. Love has now entered your life and it isn’t difficult. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
