Vision or judgement is your choice; but never both of these (A Course in Miracles)

To judge is to choose perception over vision—to trust the ego’s concepts of good and bad. Judgment always attempts to make sin real in order to justify the ego’s solution to sin—which is always separation, punishment, blame, shame and other forms of violent attack that the ego believes will teach the lesson of correction. What is the purpose of judgement, and does it ever work?

In truth, the thought system of judgment fails every time and corrects nothing. Any form of attack only teaches violence; thus making the situation worse. Judgment is blinded with its own logic—its own assumptions about human nature and about the motives behind human behavior—and so every response that comes from judgment misses the mark.

The mind likes to judge the errors of others, yet ironically the real error is the act of judgment, itself. All error is, to use the words of Marshall Rosenberg, only a tragic expression of an unmet need. The way to correct error is not to judge; rather, to communicate honestly on the level of the unmet need.

In any situation, there is an optimal, effortless, true path forward. The way is never found through judgment or any other form of separation; rather, only through faith in union on the level of spirit. Vision requires that we respond to error lovingly by communicating on the level of needs with an open heart and mind. In so doing, what starts as conflict leads you both on a path toward inner peace, true happiness, and eternal love.

We remember to choose vision tomorrow and each day after that.


Meet your challenges with perfect love

When you give love, you are not giving of yourself. You are effortlessly allowing the brilliant, warm light of the universe to flow through you and into the hearts of everyone’s lives you touch.

When you receive love in return, remember that its source also comes from the same place—far beyond the limits of bodies and minds. To awaken is to love in such a way that nothing obstructs the light—everything is made whole, made one, made perfect, and recognized as beautiful and true.

Wisdom is knowing how to live in such a way that you do not hide from the light nor dim its effects. This is what is meant by the undoing of ego—learning to not get in the way of love, which of course means the same thing as God, consciousness, presence, truth, beauty and freedom. One energy, many names.

Because we are alive, challenges will arise. In response, we must stop repeating the tired lessons of this world. Enough with the sacrificial, mind-based, loveless doing. Now we meet our challenges with perfect love. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


Stop trying to control (Tao Te Ching)

Let go of fixed plans and concepts, and the world will govern itself.

The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be.

The more weapons you have, the less secure people will be.

The more subsidies you have, the less self-reliant people will be.

Therefore, the master says,

“I let go of the law and people become honest.

I let go of economics, and people become prosperous.

I let go of religion, and people become serene.

I let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes as common as grass.”

-Tao Te Ching (57)

The world has forgotten that peace, happiness and virtue is found only in freedom. As governments and other centralized institutions continue to force more rules, more monitoring, more security, more threats and more punishments upon us, deep down we all know that we are innocent. They resort to violence and intimidation because they lack legitimate authority over us.

These systems of fear, intimidation and control will ultimate collapse as all tyrannies eventually do. There is nothing we need to do to restore freedom in this world. To undo the disastrous effects of tyranny, we need only awaken to being and recondition the mind to love.

When we remember that we are love and let go of fear, freedom will be instantly reclaimed and brought into the light. We will then remember that everything we seek has been present within and all along. We continue to let go tomorrow and each day after that.  


Let the Tao become present


To let the Tao become present in your life is to remain rooted in being—which is to say present, fully accepting of what is, lacking and wanting nothing. All doing that flows being is an extension of being—an expression of limitless and eternal power rooted in truth.

To let the Tao be present in your family is to accept all family members unconditionally, to love without limit, and to let truth flow freely. If the Tao is present, then this is easy because the truth that flows is profoundly beautiful and loving. Let your loved ones be. Let them go on their own journeys without adding mind-based judgment, shame, or guilt. A family routed in being will flourish.

To let the Tao be present in your country seems almost impossible in this modern world. No country comes even close to representing anything other than ego. What is possible, nonetheless, is the establishment of movements facilitated by technologies rooted in being. We can form virtual countries of people rooted in being and connected in union. From this position of truth, we can begin to influence institutions and politicians. But that isn’t the goal. Letting the Tao be present is the only goal.

The Tao Te Ching is a work of such profound beauty and truth that it is recognized only by looking within. When we stop treating this present moment as merely a means to get to the next moment, we begin to see, to feel, and to hear all the universe sing. Everything we desire is here. Now. Within. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.  

Abscondo Podcast #60: Love vs. Fear

Escaping the ego to eliminate pain body episodes.


Also available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other Podcast Channels. 

As you give, you gain.

To give of yourself and to serve—and to do so in freedom—is the source of abundance and salvation from an otherwise cruel world.

Seek creative ways to effortlessly help, to serve, to make lives better. This is how you join with your brother and sister in true union. There is enormous opportunity and power in a union of mutual trust and service.

Two hearts and minds joined together in a common purpose are far stronger than one. Now imagine the potential of a network of a thousand or a million people joined together, in spirit, with open hearts and open minds. What is blocking this from happening? The ego within us is, of course.

While the ego is still alive within us, it insists upon interfering in and controlling our relationships. Now the ego is suspicious at best and vicious at worst. Is this who you want to put in charge of your relationships? Dreams will come true only when we remove this parasite.

Everything great that has ever happened in this world is a result of people coming together in true harmony, cooperation, union. This type of union is rare, but herein lies all strength. We are assembling a large community based on the principles of love and service using the mobile app called “I Am by Infobeing”.

If there is something you need help with, something you feel inspired to do or accomplish, just create some “I am statements” on the app. If I happen to meet you there, I will do everything in my power to help you and to serve you in freedom. This is how the movement grows, how we become stronger, happier, and more secure.

Open your heart and mind. Say yes and feel fate and inspiration guide you forward. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


Miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. (A Course in Miracles)

Everything that comes from love is a miracle. Purification is the undoing of anything within you that is not love—which of course is the experience of learning to love yourself.

To find the love within requires quiet and stillness. You may choose to lie in bed or take a long walk. Find a way to just be with yourself for a while. At first, you might be tempted to occupy the mind by picking up the phone or watching something. Resist this impulse and make room for the mind to become bored. This undoes the mind’s grip.

Now go within. Let your attention move toward the energy within your heart. If you have had any recent thoughts of guilt or fear, notice how these thoughts have been blocking this energy. The energy within you can only expand when you find out that you are perfect, that you are not guilty, that you are doing your best and everything is going to be alright.

That nice energy you feel within when you relax your shoulders and forgive yourself, that’s self-love. Let it expand. Now open your heart to every single person in the world—to every living creature. Open your mind to let your love flow through it.

This is the undoing of stress, the escape from the ego, the movement toward perfect health, freedom and happiness. Now you are ready for any challenge. More importantly, you are ready to love others. Any attempt to love anyone without starting with self-love will ultimately fail because it will be only mind-based clinging to form and not love at all. Purification is necessary first.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


Perfect love is the way


Yesterday I wrote that perfect love is the best way to undo the ego. Most people believe that it is necessary or even desirable to have some ego, but I have found that the ego offers nothing of value. Ego should be shattered, destroyed, escaped, undone completely and perfect love is the best way.

I say “perfect love” because the word love has been badly misused and misunderstood. Popular culture has defined love as clinging, needy, exclusive, filled with expectations and sacrifice. Perfect love, on the other hand, is not the kind of love you get; rather, the kind that is found within. It functions as unconditional acceptance, total honesty, and extends to everyone. Perfect love is giving and the highest form of giving is creating.

Perfect love never attacks, never rejects, never asks for sacrifice, and is never jealous or needy. It is trusting, truly helpful, yet fills your life with peace and energy as it also sets you free. Fill your heart with perfect love and there is no room for fear. In perfect love, you are your best self.

Most people are afraid to offer the world perfect love because they are afraid of being taken advantage of. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nobody is going to manipulate you because your perfect love exists in freedom and guilt no longer works on you. Now you decide what to give and to whom.  

Be love. Offer only the loving response at all times. Let go of all attack because it teaches nothing. Because you never attack, now you aren't attacked in return. Go within, in stillness, to connect with the perfect love that is already within you as life energy. Now extend it to everyone in all situations. Watch the ego die as your life transforms. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.  

Escape the ego to destroy the pain body.

Eckhart Tolle refers to the emotional side of ego as the pain body. The pain body is the out-of-control emotional energy that sometimes arises within us during conflict, stress, or times of great fear. It takes over the body and mind and makes us react in ways that we later recognize as insane.

“I don’t know what came over me.” That’s the pain body. He compares it to a vicious animal within us. Like any life form, as long it lives it is fighting for survival. It needs to feed every few days in some or every few weeks in others. Its food is negative energy and drama. If this doesn’t come from an external source, the pain body creates it by starting conflict or by focusing on negative thoughts.

As long as the ego is alive, the pain body is alive. The only way to avoid getting drawn into a pain body episode—which threatens to ruin relationships and cause irreversible problems—is to destroy the ego.

Eckhart Tolle teaches that present moment awareness and inner-body awareness are the best portals into consciousness—the best way to escape the ego and thus eliminate the pain body. While this is effective, I have found an even more effective way to destroy the ego: choosing perfect love.

The ego’s value system is based on separation and fear. Love is union (the opposite of separation) and the antidote to fear. If we condition ourselves to always align with the values of love, to always choose the loving response, then the ego cannot survive and nor can the pain body. More on this in future teachings. This is what I practice and I don’t recall having a pain body episode for several years now. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


True intelligence extends beyond the mind

Failure is caused by the belief that you are your mind. This is a limiting belief that allows you to ignore the way you physically feel, ignore your gut feelings, and shut out what excites you.

This, you believe, is how to behave like a grown-up. You don’t have time for that touchy-feely stuff, right? Too bad, because this is what has been holding you back.

No matter your experience and education, the unobserved mind runs in all sorts of directions and is certain of nothing. It generates only stress and confusion for yourself and others. Dominated by fear, the mind-identified person creates nothing of true and lasting value. Everything is motivated only by a desperate clinging to external form, a desire to be right, a need for security in a world of chaos.

You are attempting the impossible. So you burn out. You often feel miserable. Life becomes only a series of compromises but the reward—what you truly desire—never comes. So you beat yourself up. More self-discipline and the cycle continues.

These teachings are about another way. The way of true mastery. This is the start of a huge movement. Take part and help lead on the “I Am by Infobeing” mobile app. Check the app for daily teachings and use the app to connect with and serve other members.
