Fear is hell. Hell is fear. Love is heaven. Heaven is love.

Hell is not to be feared. To fear is to make hell for yourself. Fear is a way of seeing, a system of thought, but not a reality. If you can learn to live without fear, you will never experience hell. How does one learn to live without fear?

The short answer, by recognizing your identity as love. The life force in you, the positive energy, your entire worth flows from your love. Love flows from within. More than this, it is what you are—the force of life itself.

Can love be threatened or defeated? No, only decided against. Love is in the realm of spirit. It is not a thing you can touch or see. It is in the non-physical dimension of non-matter. Attention can be withdrawn from it, a judgment can be made against it, but it can never be attacked and is eternally there. Waiting.

You, therefore, as love, are eternal and safe. In this knowledge, there is nothing to fear. Reality becomes heaven now, in this life and beyond.

It is all about how we see, and with what kind of vision. If we look upon the sick, fearful images and stories of the world—the one violently thrust upon us through every corrupt institution that exists—then we experience hell now. Why? Because it is all designed to cause fear and the feeling of fear is hell.

If we, instead, withdraw all attention from fear by recognizing its fundamental unreality, we instantly shift to heaven now and always. The way is not hard, but it is very different. A spiritual practice is required, but total success is inevitable for anyone who wants it.

The world was made that problems could not be escaped. (A Course in Miracles)

The end of all the world’s roads is the same. “Their end is certain, for there is no choice among them. All of them will lead to death.” A Course in Miracles continues, “there is no choice where every end is sure.”

“Men have died on seeing this, because they saw no way except the pathways offered by the world. And learning they led nowhere, lost their hope. And yet this was the time they could have learned their greatest lesson. All must reach this point, and go beyond it.”

“No longer look for hope where there is none. Make fast your learning now.” “For from this lowest point will learning lead to heights of happiness, in which you see the purpose of the lesson shining clear, and perfectly within your learning grasp.” -All quotes from A Course in Miracles

It is perfectly right that we speak the truth, do what’s right in this world, and hope for happenings that alleviate suffering and bring justice. We can seek loving, beautiful relationships. We can achieve great things, raise wonderful families, and experience every adventure life has to offer. But none of this is salvation.

The Great Awakening is not to be brought about by any political or military action. It is what happens when we learn this most important lesson…when we stop looking to the future…when we discover God’s love within…when we align with Love in all thinking and doing. This escaping of ego and embracing of reality is the lesson. You are complete, in love, in truth, in perfection, now—no matter external events.

What is required for true success?

"The unobserved mind isn’t as rational as you may believe. It makes panicked decisions all the time to avoid negative emotions." -quote from The Switch (free eBook)

Failure is caused by hiding from reality, not wanting to deal with it, wishful thinking, and other strategies of separation and avoidance. This is what the ego—or the unobserved mind—does.

Spiritual awakening is the beginning of true success. Aware of your thoughts and emotions from the perspective of consciousness (beyond the mind), now you can calmly, wisely, lovingly put your attention on what needs it and address any challenges.

When you destroy the ego and become aware of yourself as the energy and thought system of love, you recognize that you are safe in eternity. In this state, fear vanishes.

Now you can look at reality without the strong emotional reactions. You can calmly solve business problems, take calculated risks, work through financial strategies, and fix relationship problems.

No idol stands in your way; rather, it is the idea that the idol has power which is the block.

The mind chases idols—always seeking something external or material as a condition for happiness. If we could only have this, experience that, or if this would work out in the right way, then we can finally be happy. Most people spend their whole lives this way, never quite attaining any lasting happiness or joy.

Even when we do succeed in conquering an idol, or when something works out perfectly, a mind that chases idols is never happy. There are always more thoughts and stories of other, new problems or needs…and other external, seemingly impossible solutions.

The problem with chasing idols is the very idea that some specific, external thing will complete you. How can one thing satisfy you when your soul longs for everything? Is belief in idols not the giving away of your power—as a perfect being who is already whole and complete—to something that is beyond your control? Are you not diminishing yourself and becoming lost in littleness—a victim at the mercy of some external thing that is seen as more real than you?

I don’t need more money to celebrate life.
I don’t need the right political situation to be free.
I don’t need more luxury to feel comfortable.
I don’t need to impress anyone for my life to matter.
All love and joy is within, and all the happiness in the universe is mine each day I have at least one other person who joins with me fully.

A Course in Miracles says, “It is never the idol that you want. But what you think it offers you, you want indeed and have the right to ask for.”

Do you want to live fearlessly, to feel joy, to fall madly in love, to experience thrills, to feel inspired, to express yourself fully, to enjoy or create something beautiful? No idol stands in your way; rather, it is the idea that the idol has power which is the block.

Now is the time to look within, just as you look plainly on the ugliest of external truths

Those of us following the real current events know that things are slowly starting to go kinetic. My role is not to make predictions or to report on current events. But as the war between the Great Reset forces and the Great Awakening forces intensifies (as shit gets real in the coming days and weeks), my intention is to provide emotional and spiritual support.

None of this is about past or future. Furthermore, there is nothing to be afraid of. If we place our full faith in love as the answer to any challenge and the response to any situation…if we want the truth and accept reality…we can remain calm and safe even during the storm.

For current updates on world events during this time, I recommend looking to sources like Gab.com and other discussion forums where you can find Patriots. It is important to know what is happening out there, but we cannot become obsessed with external events as the source of our internal joy, safety, and calm. You are safe in eternity and, aligned with love, you will also experience safety and abundance in this life.

If the Internet will be working during the storm, I will be doing more posts, talks, and podcasts. The best place to find me is at Abscondo.com. I will also be regularly going live on any platform that is operational.

Now is the time to look within, just as you look plainly on the ugliest of external truths. Allow illusions to be shattered, darkness to be revealed, and light to heal the world. It is a process of undoing ego that is unfolding now and will continue into the foreseeable future. It is a beautiful time to be alive and I hope to join you on this journey.

What should I do about cheating and my feelings of jealousy?

No matter what is going on in the world, the most popular topic on this blog is sex. While I have written proportionately little about sex, the topic of sex is what people are searching for. When people contact me, it is usually with questions about their romantic relationship and, more specifically, about jealousy and sex.

My position on jealousy, cheating, monogamy and sex is always the same, without exception, and it is completely clear. It is a position that is in full alignment with all the spiritual lessons being taught here—including lessons of acceptance, openness, wanting only truth, and enjoying life.

There are no exceptions to unconditional love. As A Course in Miracles states, “There are no exceptions to the lesson, because the lack of exceptions is the lesson.” Can a love relationship be perfect, complete, and unconditional if there are conditions placed upon it? No.

People ask, “what about in the case of cheating?” To that, I answer: if there has been cheating, then there must have been an arrangement where the total truth, full openness, and acceptance of each other has been made impossible. This undoing of love is typically done through rules. Rules are typically backed by threats.

In a normal relationship based upon rules and expectations, the feeling of closeness is impossible because a part of you is rejected. Now the feeling of love is eroded, resentment ensues, a strong need for unconditional love remains. So the desire to cheat becomes very real. Even when there is no cheating, to impose a boundary on a partner means that you can no longer be sure what your partner is thinking, wanting, feeling, or doing. This hurts.

A holy relationship is between two spiritually awakened individuals united by unconditional love. Here there are no rules. In love, all feelings can be accepted and shared openly. All challenges can be solved. All needs can be met. No demands are ever placed upon the other. Nothing needs to be hidden, and you can both be free.

“What about sex with other people?” If your partner has a real need, and you claim to love this person, you must love the whole person. This must go both ways. What you may find is that, in a holy relationship, the burning need for someone new is greatly diminished. No other person can provide what you already have. If there is still some need remaining, some strong curiosity or passion for something, then it can be approached in the spirit of fun—because you both know that your love is eternal and no other person is going to threaten your perfect relationship.

This is not how the world does relationships. This is why the vast majority of relationships in the world are miserable, why people lie and cheat, and why parents separate. The approach I am describing is not a matter of opinion. I am describing the unchangeable reality of romantic relationships and marriages. You can ignore it, but the result will be suffering and crisis. The purpose of all the pain we go through in relationships is to teach us the lesson about this unchangeable truth.

Nothing is mandatory. It is always a question of whether we choose to comply.

Many people today are afraid of mandatory vaccines and other totalitarian measures that violate our dignity and our human rights. We are also talking about masks and everything else being forced upon us, against our will, under false pretenses.

In some countries, we have even been told that we cannot go outside unless we are tested for COVID. Eventually, they may tell us that we cannot take a flight or cross a border unless we have proof of vaccination. What we are describing here is an abusive relationship between the corrupted government / media and the people. We are being repeatedly manipulated into do what we do not agree with—and it is abuse.

Many of us feel as though we have no say, no power in the situation, that we are subject to the government and that there is nothing we can do. I say that I refuse to take part in any abusive relationship because the price to the soul is too high. If I do not choose to do something—for reasons I understand from my own free will—then I will not do it. Furthermore, I will not accept the consequences unless they are violently enforced upon me.

No one has the right to make arbitrary rules and then set arbitrary consequences for those who agree to neither. If they are telling me that I cannot travel or fly, then I will find another way to enjoy myself. If they are telling me that my children cannot attend school without an unproven vaccine, then we will choose home education and will not ask for permission to do so.

The rewards they offer, even free money, are not worth selling our souls. Compromise is one thing, but we have already compromised too much to a system we thought had some legitimacy. Recently, the relationship has become so clearly abusive that it must end.

Awakened, we are strong enough to live without their technologies and their luxuries. The risk to our health and the destruction of our human dignity is too great. The price of being born into this world is not to be paid in subjugation and abuse. They can do with me what they will. Whatever it is, it will be far better off than agreeing with my own corruption. I will continue to choose my eternal identity, not the fear-based identity they would force upon me.

I am born perfectly free and complete, as we all are. I am subject to God’s laws of nature, to the order of reality itself: love—which is the energy of creation, the thought system of all wisdom, and the solution to every problem. I am here to love all, to serve all, and to create joy and beauty.

Until a legitimate government and media comes along to earn my respect and trust, they no longer have any authority over me and do not control me. I am no longer afraid of them, their threats, their orders, and their violent abuse. I am here only to help, to heal, and to be the light until this divine flame burns in this dimension.

To remember the now

To truly remember is not merely to conjure up the past or to recall something that happened before. These types of memories are shallow and entirely of the mind.

Each memory brings feelings, both positive and negative. We are mostly unaware of the feelings we attach to memories, yet it is because of the feelings that we care about memories. Deep down, we want happy feelings again. So, we long sadly for a perfect moment that cannot be repeated. We also want to avoid painful or fearful feelings. So, we avoid experiences that may seem similar to what happened in the past.

There is an error here, and it is very subtle. What matters is really not the memory of events; rather, the meaning and feelings we prescribe to them. What we want is to experience joy, happiness, and pleasure now and avoid fear, anger, or pain now. This is only possible through a different kind of remembering.

There is a memory that goes deeper than the mind. It is a memory of the heart, of love, of inspiration, of God, of eternal truth and beauty. These are feelings, beyond form. How can you remember a feeling? Only by experiencing again now. If there are feelings you do want but are absent now, then the question is not what situation brought them forth then; rather, what is blocking the feeling now?

When you cut through the lazy memories of the mind, you remember the truth about you now. You remember how it feels to forgive yourself and love yourself unconditionally. You remember how it feels to be free, to be who you are, and to do what inspires you. No circumstance or situation in the past is required for you to remember now. No external situation in the world around you is required for you to remember what is entirely within you now and always.

Can you remember how it felt to be an innocent child, filled with excitement, energy, and perfect joy? Can you remember how it felt to fall madly in love? Or to dream and then do? These are the memories you want. These are memories that can only be remembered by experiencing it in the present moment. To remember truly is to go there now. Free yourself from the shallow, paralyzing memories of the mind. This is to unblock. To awaken.

I forgive all because I know that error and sickness is impotent.

662b

Total healing requires only a single instant of unconditional love. This means loving every being as one—as an extension of the self—and then extending that love without any form of attack. Withholding forgiveness, punishing, blaming, shaming, making demands—this is faith in attack, not in love.

This lesson is that only unconditional love—which includes unconditional acceptance, total forgiveness, and perfect honesty—is healing. The lesson is easier to apply in the case of small errors. But how can we apply unconditional love and total forgiveness where there is child abuse, murder, violence, oppression, or corruption?

Start by remembering that only a single holy instant of your perfect love is enough for total, eternal healing. If you can do this fully once, you break the ego’s grip on your forever. You may occasionally get pulled back into fear or indignation, but you will never forget the higher truth of perfect, unconditional love. This will be your home.

I am thinking about the liars, the criminals, those who murder the innocent, yield fear as a weapon, those who rob populations of their livelihoods and traditions—I ask myself again, how am I to love these people unconditionally and forgive completely? After I experienced my holy instant—my awakening to spirituality—I can no longer believe that anything of the world has any power over perfect love (which is, in other words, the force of life, of creation—God). If I stray from love, I place my faith in the ego, I believe in the power of error, and in evil itself as a real threat.

The fallen and corrupted are those who believe in their black magic—their secrets, their bargains. And where has it delivered them to other than hell?

We are not bodies warring; this is not who we are. Our identity is in spirit. It is not in the realm of physical matter. Consciousness, itself—the “you” who is observing your thoughts, sensing your body, perceiving this world—consciousness is the same across us all. This is what is meant by “we are one”.

In spirit, we all have the same needs—and they are already fulfilled when we stop sacrificing to the ego. Those who identify with the ego desperately seek to fulfill their needs in the world. This strategy always fails because reality is non-negotiable.

I forgive all because I know that error and sickness is impotent. “Evil” has no power over the real me as eternal love, spirit, consciousness. Any correction or healing can only be done by teaching the true lesson: love, and do not attack in any form.

The only thing that is required for healing is a lack of fear. (A Course in Miracles)

“Don’t worry!” It sounds easy, right? But to achieve fearlessness is to reach the highest level of success in life.

From fear flows illness, suffering, grumpiness, anger, hate, jealousy, and all negative emotions. It is only one thing, though appears to take many forms. The only antidote to fear is love. When aligned with love—in love with yourself and all of life—fear is absent. Only fear pulls you away from love, and it is impossible to feel and to experience both love and fear at the same time. You can’t serve two masters.

If you choose to view the world around you from a position of fear, your impulse is to control everything. You fight everything. You attack and do whatever it takes to shape the world because you believe it will end suffering and stress. Has this worked so far? No, because it is impossible. The world is too complex to be controlled and too far outside of our control.

If you choose to view the world around you from a position of love, you find that love is truth. You learn that wanting this truth requires openness, honesty, and acceptance. Your role, as love, is to dissolve conflict, to create, and to serve. You can effortlessly bring positive energy and a cooler head to all situations. You can allow people and events to take their own course and respond lovingly, without trying to control.

But how? Not by trying to delude yourself. Not by establishing boundaries. Not through wishful thinking. This is all very fragile and is of the ego because it is separation. Separation is a choice for the values of death, and ultimately leads to more fear.

The answer: through faith. Faith in the power of love now, which is the divine force of life. Aligned with love, there is no stress. Therefore, no illness. Love allows you to ask real questions and receive real answers. As love, you have the power to look upon anything and transform it from dark to light by simply revealing its reality. Your relationships are unbreakable, your value clear, your eternal life built upon a foundation which is beyond threat. As love, there is nothing to fear.

This isn’t easy as an ongoing state, but even a holy instant spent aligned with perfect love is the miracle. Perfect love is a daily practice—a spiritual practice. This is what we are doing here.
