A decentralized economy for the awakened world (Feb. 25th, 2021 | Abscondo Podcast #100)

As the good guys win and a new world order emerges, we need new systems and technologies to support our new way of life. Today I discuss the "I am" decentralized / quantum communications platform, currency, and social connecter. This concept is fully-developed and I am open to working with anyone who feels inspired.

Purification is the decision to align your beliefs with higher truths

It is a choice to disassociate from the ego. A decision to value the miracle of the now, to practice non-resistance to what is, and to always respond to everyone and everything lovingly.

Higher truth is grasped in the form of various concepts and words, yet it is one whole. If you understand one piece of it (e.g., forgiveness), you have accessed the whole. This whole is nothing other than perfect knowledge, and perfect knowledge is superior to mere perception. It is also far superior to so-called rationality (which does not even exist).

Higher truth includes some of the following spiritual beliefs:

  • I believe that I am not my mind; rather, that my true identity is formless consciousness (or awareness, love, presence…these are all different words that mean the same thing and the words do not matter).
  • I do not believe in the reality of fear because I know that I am eternally invulnerable beyond form.
  • I believe that I am perfectly complete now, in this eternal, ongoing present moment, and am waiting for no future destination of salvation or heaven. The entire reality exists now and there is no other time than now.
  • I believe that the thought system of love is perfect and wholly true. Sin is where love is not. Anything done in love is done correctly. One need only learn what love truly is and what love truly does. There are books about it. I wrote a free eBook that you may enjoy on this topic, and it is called Belove: How to End Pain by Escaping Your Ego.
  • As love, we believe not in manipulation or attack; rather, in the thought system that is effortlessly giving, creating, accepting, open, free, fearless, joyful, blissful, and capable of solving every problem because the only problem is lack of love.

Purified, we feel the perfect energy flow from within and life is instantly and constantly perfect. From this true belief system, our decisions are very different. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

A decision is a conclusion based on everything you believe. It is the outcome of belief. (A Course in Miracles)

“No belief is neutral. Every one has the power to dictate each decision you make.”

I am neither rational nor unbiased. Each of my actions, behaviors, and decisions are an outcome of my beliefs—and no belief is neutral. Only beliefs have the power to lift us from confusion, chaos, suffering, and crisis—but only when those beliefs are true.

False beliefs seem to promise comfort and end confusion, but only for a time. When our actions, behaviors, and decisions are based upon false beliefs, reality will come around to make the correction.

This correction is what is experienced as suffering. If correction is not made as a result of suffering, crisis will make sure that it is. I explain this concept in detail in my free eBook The Switch.

Only you can give yourself permission to be that amazing, wonderful version of you

What is it that prevents you from being that fun, joyful, inspired version of you? How long has it been since you had that feeling of excitement inside? Since you allowed yourself to dream? Since you lived a dream or experienced a fantasy?

The only reason we fall short of being the best possible version of ourselves is that we give power to external voices and forces. We are made afraid by the media, the financial system, and the healthcare system. We are falsely made into criminals by a corrupt government. We are made to feel guilty by environmentalists, social justice advocates, and others. We are forced to conform and act normal at work and at school.

In our personal lives, our romantic partners, family, and friends want us to say, do, and be as they say. The lesson is always that we are wrong, we are flawed, we are not enough of this or too much of that.

When you give these external voices power, then you doubt, ignore, and even lose your inner voice. Your inner voice is your compass. Most people are lost because they believe that their own compass is bad. When you lose faith in your inner voice, you become confused, withdrawn, cynical, sarcastic, angry, fearful, stress out, and life becomes a miserable experience.

No one is ever going to give you permission to follow your inner compass. Only you have that power. So what are you good at? What is beautiful about who you are or what you create? What interesting perspectives have you learned through your unique life experiences? What unique skills have you acquired? What excites you? When were you most happy? What do you dream of? Do you remember that you are innocent, that you are good and lovable? This is your truth. Own it and live it.

I go by the name “Abscondo” because, to me, to abscond means to withdraw my faith and attention from the harmful external voices, from the lost and lonely people. It means to ignore all the times I have been disappointed by lack of love in people. It means to go within and to connect with the real me—the one who loves purely, creates beautiful music, creates value through my work, does everything I have ever felt inspired to do, and who is completely open, transparent, and honest about everything.

Here I feel wonderful and life is amazing. Here I am complete, joyful, and am as enthusiastic as a child—no matter what any of the external voices are saying. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Life is experienced beyond the mind

So much goes on in our heads, but nothing real can be experienced in thought.

Notice how everything real, beautiful, and enjoyable happens during the gaps between thoughts. We come alive when the analysis, the naming, and the judging of good and bad stops. This seeing with true vision is available to everyone through the perspective of consciousness or "I am". Focused attention with a still mind.

The thoughts, analysis, and stories of the mind are useful at times. The mind is a useful tool, but life is experienced when attention is shifted away from thought. This is learned through spiritually-alive teachings and through meditation. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Lack of love in this world is the only problem

Ignorant of love, humans are a cancer on the planet. We destroy. We use up. We suffer.

Enough. The only priority in this life is that we learn to love. In love we heal, we create, we provide, and we enjoy.

Most people do not know what love is. Love’s energy and wisdom has been lost in this world. We have it upside-down. Everything about life that doesn’t matter has been made to matter; yet it still doesn’t matter because love is still all that matters.

Love is not what you find or get from anyone, it is what you are. Love is not a feeling or an arrangement, it is a way of being in truth.

Forgive yourself. Forgive and accept it all. There is nothing wrong with you and there never has been. There is nothing you need to become other than what you are: love. Be that.

Love does not come to you; rather, it comes from within you. Let go of all that is blocking the love flowing from within. This is success. Furthermore, horrific revelations are about emerge that will require us all to see the world from the perspective of love, if only to maintain sanity in the face of evil. We want only love. We use it to transform darkness. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Newness

Something about being human is this fundamental hunger and drive toward exploration. Life without newness feels dull and monotonous. Newness brings a subtle sense of aliveness, excitement, and passion to the present moment.

Doing is knowing. To know, we must do what excites us—going all the way into wherever it leads, yet without clinging to any of it. We are free to experience it, free to think it, free to say it, free to keep it or let it go. We can embrace new perspectives, new friendships, new music, new routines, new situations, new challenges, new places, new possibilities, new recipes, new things.

Thoughts, rules, or emotions limiting freedom are unnecessary obstacles preventing us from doing what we are here to do. We declare ourselves free and set each other free. We approach the present moment with an open mind, a heart that is alive, and a “yes” always on the tip of our tongues.

Here we are alive in passion, truth, and beauty—but only as long as we remain within the thought system of love. Think and act freely but without love and experience suffering and crisis until you learn the whole lesson. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The mask is about to be torn off

692

For 1,000s of years, humanity has accepted the unacceptable. We were told it was human nature, but there is nothing natural about it. Violence, deception, domination of the many by the very few.

And what kind of people would do such a thing? Was there not a point at which their material wealth, comfort, and fame was enough? Could they not have respected us, allowed us freedom and the pursuit of happiness? What is this sickness that has gradually overtaken the world until it became so impossible that decent people finally fought back?

It is only a matter of days or weeks before the mask is torn off. When it is, the answers will be revealed with perfect clarity. When we are shown the unspeakably ugly truth, we will recognize that the problems of the world are not a result of human nature. We will know because we will not recognize ourselves in these ruthless, dark, corrupting forces that have been in control. We will see that we are good and loveable. We will realize that our confusion was painstakingly taught to us through the insane thought system of ego.

Abundance will emerge in all areas of our lives. There will be a new recognition of beauty and truth. Stress and fear will be forgotten. Our hearts and minds will open. Each moment, we will be grateful to be alive now, just as we wonder how we could have ever accepted things as they were before.

This is the Great Awakening. We undertake it now, tomorrow, and each day after that.

When choosing the way of love and truth, the price is never too high

There are many portals to spiritual awakening. Some reach this state through the experience of unconditional love or the recognition of self-love. Others through present moment awareness or a religious experience. Others find it after the ego has been destroyed in crisis. Many people reach this state, but then lose it as they retreat back into the normal routines.

For your awakening to be ongoing requires that all decision-making, all communicating, and everything you do is wholly loving and perfectly honest. This sounds nice and easy (and would be in a different world).

This world is designed to punish us for this, which is why spiritual awakening is so rare. Awakening requires that we face the seeming abyss of punishment and consequence. This comes in the form of unjust threats from a corrupted government, healthcare system, or media. We also must face shunning from our friends. Too often, there is a need to find another profession or even face the painful end of a marriage.  When faced with these difficult choices, most people compromise.

But to compromise at all on the principles of unconditional love and total honesty / truth is to choose against your awakening—to be defeated by a world designed to domesticate and enslave you.

Any decision against awakening—any choice against love and truth—is a choice against everything you want: beauty, safety, true love, intimacy and so much more. What you want can only be found in love and truth (and cannot be experienced without it). When you trade freedom for a bit of temporary security, it only extends the problems of this world and in your life indefinitely.

For your life to change, and for the world to change, we need only commit to unconditional love and perfect honesty (and wanting truth) always. To do so is to realize that all the consequences you feared are only natural adjustments—the removal of all problems so that the light of true reality can shine. The adjustments are caused not by your decision for awakening; rather, by all the mistakes you made before this decision. It is a simple choice to invest more energy into a mess or to go on a wild ride that ultimately leads to perfect joy.

One important point: it isn’t your job to control these changes or to make any decisions about them. It is your job to love unconditionally and commit to perfect honesty; allowing whatever happens to happen because it must happen. When you don’t interfere in any outcome, and present yourself perfectly authentically, you may be surprised to find out that your worst fears never materialize at all (or, if they do, you are glad in the end). This is faith. We continue tomorrow, and each day after that.

If you don’t build your relationship on the truth, sooner or later it will crumble. (Thich Nhat Hanh)

So often, truth is withheld in relationships with the best of intentions. We want to avoid making the person we love feel uncomfortable or upset. We present a “better” version of ourselves to be loved more and to make the relationship stronger. Despite how normal and well-intentioned this is, it is also the way that relationships are poisoned.

The first thing that happens is that the person withholding or twisting the truth feels afraid of being discovered. You also feel isolated, misunderstood, and distant. Now there are problems and unmet needs that the person you love cannot help you with because he or she is unaware. Not saying how you feel or what you mean—expecting the other person to guess—leads to friction and resentment.

What about the other person? If you are afraid to be honest in your relationship, you probably don’t encourage it or welcome it from your partner. So both of you feel the same low-level, ongoing suffering. Besides, it is exhausting to fake anything, especially at home. Acting is work and nobody can be happy without breaks from work.

We learn about relationships from the world of entertainment, where characters are always trying to manipulate reality. This is what all movies are about. If there were a movie about two people who were perfectly open and honest always, there would be no plot, no intrigue, no drama, no crisis to deal with. This movie has never been made, but this sort of life is possible and fully desirable.

What most people do not know until it is too late, is that the truth always eventually comes out. You can go on for years getting away with something, playing a role, pretending. But reality is designed in such a way that everything will be known. When it is, you will face crisis and everything you built on that foundation of shifting sand will crumble.

Even if it may seem difficult at first, if there are risks involved in speaking your truth, every relationship must be built on truth and openness to be joyful and eternal. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
