What can I do about it?

If you see the corruption, the robbery, the fearmongering, the horrific violence and deception that has been thrust upon the global population for as long as we have all been alive—the question that comes to everyone’s mind is “what can I do about it?”

As a lone individual or even small community, fighting back against the ruthless group of unimaginably rich and powerful people does not work. They control the media, the courts, politicians and more. Violence does not work. Protest does not work. Exposing the ugly truth does not work. Why? Because the entire system has been rigged against us. When we play their game, the house will always win. The system that they have designed has been capable of squashing any threat.

I believe that the white hats—through the NSA, other parts of the U.S. military and their many alliances—have been ripping apart this sick system of control piece by piece over the past few years. Many of us, who are following the real world events, believe we are moments away from a Biblical shift in power. Justice will finally be served. A fair new Quantum Financial System (QFS) is being put in place. Truth and freedom will prevail. Yet we also understand the enormity of what is going on behind the scenes. Despite some very real frustration, we wait patiently as we watch the shocking developments.

But what can we do until we reach this destination? What if it never arrives? What can we do to be free now, to live in joy and safety, to thrive and experience our lives properly? Furthermore, what can we do to create change? What power do we have?

This is what I have been talking and writing about for these past 5+ years and how I have been living for the past 15. What I have been saying in countless forms is very much like what Simon Parkes said in yesterday’s talk, “You have to craft a form of living, now, that doesn’t rely on these people.”

You do have the power to withdraw attention from their media. You do have the power to take your mask off and not to receive the vaccines. You have the power to overcome your ego. To awaken to consciousness / God / Love. To always speak the truth.

You also have the power to start your own business and achieve financial independence. To create multiple steams of income. To diversify your wealth via cryptocurrency. To define your relationship models. To parent according to your values. To educate your children in truth. To enjoy all the beauty in the natural world. To take care of your health. To get in shape and feel good.

You have the power to decide which job to take, which laws to obey, which ideas to adopt, and what to do with your time each moment of each day. This is not a battle against anyone or anything; rather, it is a claiming of power—which is your free will. Nothing external has the power to conquer, enslave, or ruin you. This only happens when you give away your power—and you do this by making fear real.

If you can align with perfect love in all your thinking, seeing, and doing, what you will find is that all power is within. To fight back against false power is to be dragged into the error of violence and attack—where you are always vulnerable to counterattack. Instead, live in truth now. Awaken. Be an example for everyone around. This is the way. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How many opportunities for joy have you refused?

The word “joy” is unpopular. The ego prefers the word “happiness”, but there is a clear difference. Joy is ongoing, lasting, eternal. Happiness is temporary and, because it is ab experience of the confused ego, it is always followed by its opposite (depression).

The decision for joy is as simple as always choosing love over fear…as simple as letting go of anything that brings you away from that state of joy…as easy as accepting all of reality unconditionally, as it is.

How many people have called out for your love, and in how many different ways? How many wonderful books have you left unread? How many beautiful days have you not noticed because you were too busy chasing something? How many times have you agreed to something even when your heart is begging for something else? How many lies have taken your attention away from the simple truth of joy? How many opportunities at health and fitness have you not seized and how has this affected your vibe?

The world has been upside down for a long time. In our never-ending quest for happiness, we have sacrificed joy. We have agreed to life structures where joy is impossible. We have filled our minds with so many details that we overlook the big picture.

Joy is now because it is always. It can only be accessed in the present moment. This message is yet another opportunity. Let your heart lead the way. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected (A Course in Miracles)

The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected, and the ego will not prevail against it. Amen.
-A Course in Miracles

By “The Kingdom” is meant the state of heaven, salvation—and it is within. More than this, it is what we are. By extension, I am also referring to our society, our world.

The ego—the force of evil, darkness, deceit, corruption, oppression, exploitation, violence, and cruelty within some of us and all around us—cannot and will not prevail. This would be fundamentally impossible. If at times it feels like evil is winning, that there is a real threat against you, it is only at times when you forget what you are and become lost in fear.

Some damage can be done, some destruction can occur, but the ego cannot prevail over life when life itself is the truth and reality of love. This “reality of consciousness” permeates not just every living being, but all matter in the universe. Divine consciousness is primary. It is reality. Ego is a sickness, a denial of reality so unreal that it only exists in the hell of a sick mind.

To awaken is to recognize the unchangeable state of unity, the one consciousness, which is also called the Holy Spirit, which is God, which is Love. It is all one and is beyond threat because it exists in the realm of non-matter (in the empty space). It is there we are eternal and safe.

Nothing can attack or change empty space. Swing at it and you pass right through. Bodies can be attacked and murdered, minds can be fooled for a time, fearful and foolish people can be convinced to do terrible things. But if you choose to live in The Kingdom—which means you are no longer trapped in the mind, no longer see yourself as a body, or life story, or ego—then nothing other than what you are will prevail.

When more of us awaken to this message, the entire world will be freed from evil. All that exists will be held safely and lovingly in the arms of the true knowledge of Love. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


Coping with the death of a loved one from a distance

My Mom passed away on Saturday. She had struggled with severe obesity for most of her life, and by the age of 69 her body had become taxed to the point of gradual heart failure. It was a slow process, as she was bed-ridden for more than a month and finally ended up in the hospital during her final days.

The news came not as a shock, though it did seem to happen quickly. Due to the current global insanity, and because I live in Europe and she in Wisconsin, I have been unable to see my Mom in person for 2 years. The long-distance relationship was never easy, but is all I have known for my entire adult life.

Over those past 28 years, my relationship with my Mom consisted of weekly phone calls, occasional emails and texts, generous gifts being sent on holidays, and an annual trip to visit my parents. Our relationship was honest and close, though there were really no dependencies. I never really depended upon her advice and, similarly, she wasn’t interested in my guidance with respect to healing. After countless tear-filled attempts to help her, several years ago I had finally given up trying to change anything about her. I accepted her as she was.

Each time I would say goodbye, the thought crossed my mind that it might be for the last time. Therefore, I was emotionally prepared for her passing. I considered each new moment spent with her in this dimension a sort of unexpected blessing for which I am fortunate. My ex-wife of 22 years still loves her very much. She and my life partner Zuzana also became very close over two recent visits. My children love her as grandchildren do.

My understanding of spirituality is derived from many sources, but my practical understanding of death comes largely from a wonderful book I recently enjoyed called An End to Upside Down Thinking by Mark Gober. According to Mark’s extensive interviews and research, in the body’s death we transcend our physical limitations. We, as consciousness, are no longer limited by our senses.

At the moment of death, we experience a “life review”. In an instant, we see the complete truth about our life and about the lives of everyone we loved. This is a powerful vision of truth that transcends time and space and goes beyond our mere memories. Our entire reality is seen from the perspective of unconditional love.

In life, we as consciousness are restrained to a mind and body. While there are exceptions, most people cannot see events happening around the world or during another era (though very few can do). Furthermore, to varying degrees we become identified with our physical selves, our life stories, and our possessions. We become attached to specific people, situations, and become identified with our trials and tribulations as well as our hopes and dreams.

Due to her poor health, my Mom was not able to travel for the past 22 years. On Saturday, though, I know that she had visited me. She has seen everything meaningful about my entire life—not from a perspective of judgment, but of love. I told my 11-year-old daughter all of this when I broke the news to her. From this perspective of truth, our grieving process is natural and manageable.

What is real about my Mom—her love, her attention, the knowledge she gained through her unique experiences, the stories she told, her consciousness—it all remains with us eternally. It lives on in our hearts, and even her physical form lives on as me, my children, and in all the others who love her continue our doing in this world. She is here, closer to us than ever now that she has shed that damaged body, which caused her unimaginable suffering for so many years.

I got the news of her passing upon waking up at 6:00 am. I did not cry for several hours, though I finally did as I provided support to family. Now my brother and I will do our absolute best to support our Dad, to help him grieve, to learn to do certain things for himself, and ultimately to succeed at this new path he was destined for. Now he has the chance to become his own man for some time.

None of us feel obligated to do a normal funeral. She was a very private person; like me, perhaps too honest and open to have many friends. We have chosen cremation, and we will be guided only by our hearts as we celebrate her life and her continued existence.

I hope that these words might help anyone who is grieving the death of a loved one from a distance. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Live not by lies (from Alexander Solzhenitsyn's 1974 Essay)

Quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn's 1974 Essay, "Live Not by Lies":

“Yes, at first it will not be fair. Someone will have to temporarily lose his job. For the young who seek to live by truth, this will at first severely complicate life, for their tests and quizzes, too, are stuffed with lies, and so choices will have to be made. But there is no loophole left for anyone who seeks to be honest: Not even for a day, not even in the safest technical occupations can he avoid even a single one of the listed choices—to be made in favor of either truth or lies, in favor of spiritual independence or spiritual servility. And as for him who lacks the courage to defend even his own soul: Let him not brag of his progressive views, boast of his status as an academician or a recognized artist, a distinguished citizen or general. Let him say to himself plainly: I am cattle, I am a coward, I seek only warmth and to eat my fill.”

How much damage have institutions caused us?

By “institution”, I am referring mainly to the State, the media, the school system, organized religion, healthcare, psychology, and big pharma. I am also referring to our employers and other organizations.

The church calls us sinners and we believe it. Psychologists diagnose us with mental disorders and we believe them. Employers undermine our identity by requiring us to fake all day and we lose ourselves. The healthcare system pushes harmful drugs that make us sick. School teaches us to sacrifice joy for a future reward that never quite comes. Even the institution of marriage (State interference in our love lives) damages us by taking away our freedom to do, say, and think what we feel just because we want to love someone.

Despite all this open manipulation and abuse, most people blame themselves for their problems. They may see themselves as victims of the abuse, but how does that make you special? Everyone is a victim of institutional abuse. The question is how to overcome it.

Healing is impossible if you fail to see that no institution has legitimate authority over you. Institutions are dishonest and self-serving—seeking only to strengthen themselves. They gain power by robbing you of your freedom, energy, and by stealing your attention away from the beauty surrounding you. I have found that it is possible to function very well in the world even though I have zero trust or faith in institutions. That is part of what it means to awaken.

Deep down, even after a lifetime of abuse and manipulation—all the threats, punishments, negative labels, and toxicity hurled at you by corrupt institutions—you must know that you are good. If you have ever been responsible for harming anyone, then go make it right. After you have done so, you can rest peacefully in the knowledge that you are perfect, beautiful, and complete. Anyone who knows you can be grateful. Anyone who attacks, judges, or insults you is incorrect. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


How can I experience a spiritual awakening within the context of a normal and stressful life?

Many people avoid spirituality because they believe it would require them to change everything or give everything up. We have our jobs, relationships and marriages, and our children. Then there are bills to pay, the daily routines and chores to be done.

Is spiritual awakening even possible while living in “the real world”? Do you have to leave all your responsibilities behind, go to a mountaintop, and become a monk? Thankfully, no.

Spiritual awakening is different from a vacation. It is a way of perceiving, a thought system of love over fear, a decision to completely overcome everything ego is and does. What was most surprising to me, when I chose this path, is that everything in my “real life” went far more smoothly. I was a better life partner, a better parent, and a better business owner because I learned to approach the “real world stuff” without fear or resistance—with a sense of calm and acceptance.

When you leave the stress and panic behind, you make better decisions and treat people right. Also, from the state of present moment awareness, cleaning or doing the dishes is just something that can be enjoyed. I won’t go so far as to say that I enjoy dealing with money or paying bills, but now I can do it without any emotional reactions.

I give myself permission to enjoy whatever I enjoy, but most of my time is spent fulfilling my obligations in life. I have never been to any sort of spiritual retreat and do not require any external conditions to stay connected to the source.

Any awakening that requires an escape from real-world responsibilities is no lasting salvation at all; rather, only temporary escapism. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Copy of Sky and clouds Good Morning Quotes

Is spiritual awakening real?

When I use the word “ego” or “spiritual awakening”, most people tune out—perhaps holding the opinion that ego is only natural and that spiritual awakening is just something egos talk about to make themselves seem superior.

I am sure that there are people who do fake enlightenment, who adopt it as an ego-identity to fit in or collect followers. I don’t fit with those people either because I’m too honest. If my goal was to be popular, clearly everything I am doing is wrong. Fortunately, I have no interest in popularity.


5 or 6 years ago, I experienced spiritual awakening and have remained in this state. There is nothing special about me; rather, I merely studied the concepts and applied what felt true. My life then transformed to an extent that I felt an absolute calling to share what I have found.

At first, I felt that there was no need for me to do any of this because enough people probably know this stuff. As time went by, I realized that the knowledge I had acquired—through my understanding of the concepts and through radical application in my life—is perhaps unique enough that it needed to be shared.

The other reason I write most days and give talks is that it helps renew my spiritual faith. If you don’t touch this stuff daily, you slip back into ego. This, my 723rd almost daily spiritual post, is as much for me as for any audience who stumbles upon it. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

What is the one thing that holds people back from spiritual awakening?

Spiritual awakening is all or nothing. To awaken spiritually, you must go all the way. All the way to what?

1) To absolute faith in perfect love as the only appropriate response and the correct solution to every challenge.
2) To a total commitment to perfect honesty and wanting only truth.

While I break this out into two separate points, they are one. A fundamental attribute of perfect love is perfect openness and honesty—but failure on point 2 is so common that I wanted to draw your attention to it (my free eBook, The Switch is about this).

Other attributes of perfect love include forgiveness, acceptance, openness, and generosity. Regardless of the path you are on, the teachers who you follow, and the words you use to describe spiritual concepts—anything less than a total and complete commitment to perfect love always and with everyone is no spiritual awakening. You may fall short at times, but you see it right away and correct.

If you hold back—perhaps maintaining any belief that some thoughts or truths should be private, that attack and punishment sometimes teach a lesson, that corruption and evil have real power, that you are vulnerable and fear is legitimate, that you are guilty, that illness is real, or that worldly powers have legitimate authority—then you are not spiritually awakened and remain in the normal, egoic state. If ego remains real to you at all, then you remain in a state of confusion and suffering.

When I say go all the way, I am not speaking of sacrifice. Go all the way to joy. Notice anything, anyone, or any situation that pulls you away from joy. Stop agreeing with it. I don’t mean you should avoid people or situations; rather, speak your truth to it and accept whatever outcome. No discipline is required for you to spiritually awaken because you are only giving up everything that you do not want—everything that causes suffering and crisis. Constant discipline and sacrifice is what must be given up and unlearned if joy and peace are to be experienced.

Now, if you have been living in a way in which you have not been perfectly loving always, and have not been perfectly open and honest, you will have to go through what appears to be suffering and crisis for a time. The cause of this transitional phase is not your spiritual awakening; rather, that you have been living in error up until it. Now you need to go through some life changes, which will happen naturally—requiring no planning, strategy, or manipulation on your part. If you are unwilling to accept this process, you are holding back (which is what we are talking about). If you go all the way, then everything will fall into place.

Go all the way, where there is no more internal conflict or confusion. I assure you that only love is true, only consciousness is real, that you (as spirit) are invulnerable and eternal. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.


What is special about you?


The ego thrives on the belief that you are special, different from everyone else, or somehow better. To prove their specialness, people make an identity based upon externalities such as accomplishments, possessions, beliefs, looks, characteristics, or other details having to do with a life situation. While some of this is mildly interesting, the truth of your identity cannot be found in these notions of specialness (nor can any lasting sense of satisfaction or enjoyment).

Rather than seeing reality, specialness would have us identify with our mental stories and then fight to the point of exhaustion to make them true. This is a fool’s errand, because there is nothing that can be done to make a special identity real. You can sacrifice, you can fight, you can ride the ups and downs, you can give it all striving for what you think is important—but nothing can change the deeper truth about you.

What is wonderful about you—your real potential—flows from just being. Access this by knowing that your identity is not your stories; rather, it is your spirit or consciousness. If you have accomplished something, or if there are special talents or beautiful personality traits that others enjoy in you, it is because you have become your best self by remaining centered in your spirit identity.

Rooted in the oneness and sameness of being, you can enjoy all the loveliness the world has to offer. Life flows nicely without much effort. Things tend to work out. The pace accelerates because you no longer resist. You feel perfectly complete, and success fills your life not because you had to reach for it; rather, because it flows from within. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
