The present is before time was… (A Course in Miracles)
When you are honest, everything about your life is real

Our tendency to trust authority is the crux of the problem

There is no “our side” which is good and another which is bad. It isn’t about my beliefs, my country, or my political party vs. yours because this way of thinking has gotten us into such a horrible mess.

As soon as we come to believe that “our side” is good, we put our faith in the inherently false identity of the group, movement, or institution while our real identity is elsewhere. When trust is misplaced, central authority invariably abuses our faith and harms everyone for their perceived benefit.

When one movement becomes so abusive that we can no longer deny it, we flock to another. In time, that movement also becomes abusive, so we move to yet another. As time goes on, the cycle of abuse and corruption only worsens.

I do not believe in any ideology, science, religion, source of information, politician, country, movement, or institution. Everything in this world is a mess of confusion which only seems to take on the meaning that we give it.

Yet still, apart from all the sickness and confusion, there is a way of seeing that heals everything. When we go beyond mere faith to total alignment with perfect love, honesty, and freedom, we instantly transcend all the problems of the world. If something is loving, honest, and supports freedom, then it is right and good. If not, I will not give it any attention and will not comply. No exceptions.

In a world that is thusly healed, all power is withdrawn from external authority and is shifted within. Each person alive is a divine expression of the force of life, itself, and no external force of darkness will ever diminish our power—our identity as love, truth, and freedom.
