How to escape the system and become free

I believe that almost every adult now knows, on some level, that something is wrong with the world. Are we meant to spend our lives worrying, feeling guilty, desperately trying to find meaning and happiness within the endless routine of wake, work, eat, sleep?

For our entire lives, we have coped with a system that works against us on every level. We believed what we were told and did what we were supposed to. We worked as hard as we could and tried our best. We waited for our dreams to come true. Looking back, the promises of our parents, teachers, media, and all of society have not materialized.

A growing number of us now see that we have been enslaved by this system that squeezes us with the concepts of money, taxes, laws, and rules. The more we sacrifice and comply, the more they throw at us. Despite what we are told, this isn’t how life has to be.

We have been controlled by the thought system of ego—the world’s thought system. When we believe it is real, and see no other reality beyond ego, we have no chance to escape or end this dark system of control. It doesn’t matter whether you obey it or fight it, if you stay within the thought system of ego, you will lose.

To escape ego, we need to first look at it. The underpinning of ego is fear, which takes many forms (worry, jealousy, anger, guilt, and all other negative emotions). To make any of this real without seeing the higher truth is to remain in the prison of ego. There is another way.

Ego is also the belief in time. We limit ourselves by our faith in lessons and identities of the past. We also place hope and faith in the future, but a different future cannot arrive as we hold onto the past. Only in the present moment can anything happen or change. The embrace of the present moment is something the ego cannot do. For most people, now barely matters—and this sad state of existence goes on until death. Return to now this moment and know that it is all that is real.

Ego is also all the normal behaviors: interfering, judging, attacking, getting offended, acting superior, competing, and so on. Everything considered normal in this world is ego. When we try to conform, when we worry about the opinions of others, we make ego real and decide against freedom.

Ego is our prison, not our natural state. It has been artificially created and maintained by our rulers over thousands of years. We try to find freedom, happiness, success—everything our soul desires—within the system. But it is not possible to become free by staying in prison.

The good news is that the system is falling apart. While it looks more powerful than ever, the truth is that what we are seeing is the final act of desperation by those trying to maintain their position of control. They are desperate because so many of us are awakening to reality beyond the system, beyond ego. They have lost control.

We now see the insanity of ego and are becoming aware of ourselves as consciousness, love, freedom, truth. From this perspective, we are not afraid. We have withdrawn our attention from much of what goes on within the control system. We do not comply whenever possible. Most importantly, we speak the truth no matter what.

This is what I have been talking about and writing about for all these years—the path toward freedom, ongoing joy, truth, perfect love. You will never change anything about your life or about the world from within the thought system of ego. But begin to understand the higher truth, the true reality beyond the limitations of the mind, and everything changes for you.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, we will all watch the controlled demolition of the entire system of ego control. It will be an unimaginably fearful time for those who do not know what is really happening. Those who know the truth—we will have a big job ahead.

Starting now, we will begin to live as limitless beings in a world where anything is possible as long as it doesn’t infringe upon the freedom of others. A world where our best selves will emerge, where we will create, help others, never worry about money or anything else, never bow down to jealousy, and never submit to ruthless leaders and their systems. The old system cannot continue, and a new, incorruptible system will be put into place. Too many of us have awakened. Their time is up, and their game no longer works. The meek have inherited the earth.

We go forward in total humility. We go beyond ego. We align our minds to the truth and wisdom of consciousness; thus becoming sane. Reality is now a state of ongoing joy, in this life and beyond. All we need to do is embrace perfect love, freedom, and the truth.


What if you looked within, and found that there is nothing wrong with you?

What if, within you, was the cure to all the problems of the world you think you see?
What if the truth about you is that you are pure love and perfectly lovable?
What if your intuition, your inner voice was the truth and the lessons of the world lies?
What if you looked within, and found the real source of love?
What if you found that you only mean well and are only good?
What if you looked within and found that you have the power to solve every problem?
What if you found that the real you is sinless?
What if you looked within and found nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of?
What if you realized that you are not to blame for the attacks, disappointment, and shaming others have projected upon you?
What if, by looking within, you found that the problem all along was the fear to truly look within?
What if you only looked within, in search of your pure love, your perfect honesty, your need for freedom?
What if, when you find it, you decide for this to become your only reality?
What if you then looked within your brother, your sister, everyone you see in the same way?

Post-everything

Once there was post-punk, post-modern, and so on. These days, I'm feeling post-everything. 

Yes, the world is completely insane...filled with darkness and lies. Yes, there is a great deal of hope that things will get better. But I can no longer get emotional about any of it. I no longer feel like talking about it. Maybe this isn't such a bad thing.

I am past the celebrity lies. I no longer care about them. Politicians? Please. "News" reporters? I could care less. Doctors, lawyers, other professionals in charge of keeping this broken system going? I no longer care at all what they think, believe, or say. There is zero trust, and this is a good thing.

To be post-everything is to recognize the meaninglessness in everything. All that concerns the awakened being is in the dimension of non-matter: love, freedom, truth, energy, creativity, life, feeling, being. Here knowledge is complete. I don't need any official or guru to lead me anywhere, though there is a time in life that such teachings are essential to anyone's growth. 

So these days, yes, I'm post-everything. I spend my time loving the people around me, doing my work, and creating new music. In the past month, I recorded 5 new songs. I feel like this creative outlet is a priority for me...even beyond the posts and other teachings. The most unique, perhaps the most valuable way, in which I express myself is in my songs.

It will be a very beautiful collection of new songs...with a totally different sounds, non-conventional lyrics, and in a new genre: post-everything. Probably very few people will ever hear these songs, but that's just another thing I stopped caring about.


If this were the real world, God would be cruel. (A Course in Miracles)

When people speak of "the real world", they are talking about a world in which guilt is real, where attack is justified, and where love can be first given and then withdrawn. They are talking about a world in which politics are corrupt, governments exploit, the media lies, the church calls us sinners, and school makes us ill with its endless lessons of sacrifice and confusion. 

We have learned the world's lessons so well that we believe suffering is good and enjoyment is for the foolish or weak. What a strange thought system we have adopted and what a cruel world we have made.

Certain species of animals are domesticated: dogs, cats, cows, chickens and humans. For the past several thousand years, humans have been domesticated by other humans. We were promised safety, stability and comfort and we submitted. Now, largely detached from nature, we no longer know how to survive independently.

Spiritual awakening, salvation, means remembering what is real about us; even before our domestication. Who we are is not of this artificial world we have been conditioned to see. All of society is what human minds did and what other human minds agreed to. It is what we have made and what we have accepted, but is not actually real. 

God did not make this world of suffering; we did. God made the perfect nature within us and in the perfect balance of this world. Our confused minds, ignorant of reality, are the cancer here.

To heal is to look upon God's creations as real, not our own makings. By turning reality upside down in this way, our minds may once again serve truth and we shall once again do no harm.

Follow your feelings and let nature point the way

Nothing good comes from doing something when you don’t feel good. You may feel the need to get something done, but what is the quality of your doing?

If you are rushed, everything you do will be sloppy. If you are stressed, you will only generate more stress for yourself and others. If you are depressed, nothing you do will inspire anyone. There is no point to working on anything while in a negative state. You will create problems rather than solving them.

If you feel lousy, you must have gone off course. Step back. Take a nap. Do a meditation. Do nothing at all. Go for a walk. Do something that makes you feel good. When you feel good again, when you feel inspired, then calmly place your attention on whatever you feel inspired to do.

When a person who feels good does something, it generates more enjoyment. Conversations are uplifting, creative projects are beautiful, ventures are successful.

When people are grumpy, it is because they are tired, hungry or stressed. We all get down from time to time. When you do, don’t try to solve anything. Don’t try to figure anything out. Try not to think about anything serious and just rest. You’ll be back to your best self in no time.

The world teaches fear to distract you from your power

Your power is love and it is what you are. This power can be forgotten, but it cannot be lost. Love is the only force that the world cannot resist, cannot contain, and cannot successfully war against. When your thinking and doing is loving, you channel unstoppable power and strength.

The ego would convince you to sacrifice perfect love to gain the world. But like everything the ego sets out to do, this cannot be done. There is nothing of any real value that can be gained from the world. All truth, beauty and value is consciousness infusing the world of form. To love is to bring about the feeling, the energy, the doing of consciousness.

You cannot sell your soul, but you can forget it–choosing instead a state of suffering, failure, anxiety and fear. This is the feeling of a forgotten soul begging to be remembered.

Remember what you are each day and know that it is infinitely more powerful than anything of this world. Unconditional love is so powerful that no one can stop you from practicing it. All authority lies in your truth.

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.


The present is before time was… (A Course in Miracles)

“The present is before time was, and will be when time is no more.
In it are all things that are eternal, and they are one.”
-A Course in Miracles

The normal state of existence in this world is to overlook all that is eternal and here right now to focus on either the past (which is gone) or the future (which is unpredictable, temporary, and fleeting at best). This helps explains the world’s uninterrupted state of confusion.

Only that which is in the present is real. The past and future are not here and, therefore, do not literally exist. Time can seem real only when we bring memories, hopes, and fears to the present. This is the unobserved mind’s unfortunate habit of problem-making.

None of the stuff of this world—the external threats, attacks, manufactured fears, lies, promises, rewards, punishments—none of it is actually here in your present moment unless you choose to bring it into the present moment; thus giving it power, making it seem real, and choosing to live out of accord with the eternal reality.

The stuff of the mind can be interesting, but pay attention to your emotions, thought patterns, and decisions. If you are negatively influenced by the stuff of the mind, you are losing presence and attempting to replace reality with illusion.  

We are at our best when we are present; focusing all our attention on what is here, what is real, what is eternal. By letting thoughts of past and future drift away, we can fully love, create value and beauty, and we can relax and enjoy ourselves in safety and freedom. The mind still has thoughts, but those thoughts no longer control your emotions or behavior. You are able to distinguish present-moment reality from time-based fiction.

It is the ego need for a strong identity that is leading many to insanity

Deeply craving recognition and specialness, we make an identity out of our mental positions and affiliations.

You may be liberal because you believe in compassion and social justice, but then you go along with politicians who cheat and violate human rights.  You can become so identified with a particular profession that you do terrible things. Maybe you see yourself as someone who attends social events, bars, clubs, restaurants—so you are willing to be injected with unknown, lethal substances to continue to do so. You may identify as a good, law-abiding citizen who trusts and obeys authority, who watches the news, while failing to see all the unconstitutional rules and endless stream of harmful lies.

When these external sources of identity are corrupted, people become insane. All that is required is to get politicians to scare us and take away freedom. Get businesses to discriminate. Introduce propaganda into sports. Corrupt the healthcare system to cause sickness and death. Limit free expression on social media. Steal an election from patriots. My point is this: if you are still holding onto an external identity of any kind, this stuff will drive you into deep confusion and total loss of common sense.

The restoration of sanity is the disidentification with all external form so that your identity literally becomes perfect love, truth, and freedom.

Now it is not your identity that will ever be your source of specialness or uniqueness (which has never worked anyway). Now your true grandeur will be all that you learn, experience, and create as your best, perfectly sane, healthy self—a unique genetic mutation on a unique journey. You already were special, but perhaps the best version of you has been obscured by a false sense of identity.

It's all theater

Fake election. Fake President. Fake news. Fake pandemic. Fake laws. Fake money. Fake medicine. Fake history. Fake education. Fake religion. Fake authority. Fake friendships. Fake celebrities. Fake status. Fake love. Fake truth. We see it. We know it.

The Great Awakening is the mass recognition of the illusions, lies, deceit everywhere it exists—and the simultaneous full embrace of truth. We are witnessing the death of ego and the dawn of a new world where dishonesty is inconceivable, freedom is complete, and perfect love is our only thought system.

Our oppressors have lost control. We have awakened to the divine reality—which is and always has been love, freedom, honesty, beauty, perfect health, inspiration, compassion, fairness, acceptance, consciousness, God (all words pointing to the one reality that has been obscured by fakeness and unrecognized in confusion).

The moment you know this message to be true is the moment that all the fakeness fades away for you and your real life begins. Many of us have been living in this state already for a long time. I never thought I would live to see this death of ego, end times, this awakening to reality, this mass recognition that there is no reason to continue playing the fake game, which is almost over.
