What we believe about illness becomes our experience with illness

There have long been religious and spiritual traditions that reject modern medicine. From the perspective of those who are unaware of true spiritual faith, “faith healing” seems misguided, dangerous, and absurd. Non-believers imagine countless people needlessly suffering and dying by naively depriving themselves of medical care. I get it. That was my opinion prior to my spiritual awakening.

Though I am not religious, the Christian Scientists, Religious Scientists, Amish, and likely many other churches share my belief in faith healing. A Course in Miracles teaches that illness is caused by an unhealed mind—that it is impossible to get sick if you are in a state of right-mindedness. Spiritual teachers like Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra also cover this in depth, as does Eckhart Tolle. I would go as far as to say that a person who is truly spiritually awakened (otherwise called atonement, salvation, etc.) understands and accepts the non-conventional, higher truth about illness.

While religions may put it in different terms, the idea is basically that illness is caused by ego. To spiritual awaken is to undo the harmful effects of ego, such as fear, panic, stress, and drama—all of which continuously weaken the immune system and divert vital energy away from the maintenance of perfect health and healing. To place genuine faith—even beyond “faith” to what might be called “knowing”—in God or Love is to overcome the ego and undo this fundamental problem with the functioning of the body.

Like most people, I used to get sick every month or two. I believed that I was powerless against germs and infection. Because we believed it, my family and I experience illness as our reality. Then around 6-7 years ago, I came to understand this relationship between ego and illness. Since then, illness has no longer been real in my life.

On a few occasions, I did start to feel a scratchy throat. I then immediately recognize that, in fact, I had been stressing more than usual—that I had slipped from my awakened state and was suffering from some egoic thoughts. On those few occasions when this did happen, I spent the day meditating many times. In each case, the illness was then reversed, and I was literally healed within one day.

I have not been to a doctor for 20 years and do not take any medication because I do not trust the corporate healthcare system. I do not believe that putting toxic substances into your body is the path toward healing. If it works for some, it is because they believe it works. They can do as they please. I, on the other hand, am not afraid of germs or illness in any form. It is purely a matter of spiritual faith that has been proven as reality.

The truth is, anyone who places full faith in this message—beyond any doubt—experiences the same reality as I have with respect to illness. Furthermore, this is a foundation of religious and spiritual freedom.

Any attempt by the state, media, or anyone to universally impose a “healthcare system-based reality” upon us is a direct attack on our spiritual and religious faith. It is fundamentally wrong to mandate masks or vaccines. It is an authoritarian, tyrannical attempt to force those who know the truth about God to publicly deny what we know. We resist because spiritual truth is primary. Any censorship against this message, or any punishment at all, is just as bigoted and wrong as racism.

Imagine how misguided it is—this attempt to brutally impose an untrue thought system upon a minority who knows better and does not believe in it. I would invite any honest, scientific-minded person to study people like me. What you will find is that the truth is self-evident: what we believe about illness becomes our experience with illness.

People often argue, “But Coronavirus is real. I had it and I have never been sicker. It was terrible.” To that, I say yes, of course. This is what you believe. When I believed as you, I also experienced illness the same way. Like millions of people across religious and spiritual traditions, I now know the truth about illness. I would like to please ask that you respect us even though we are different from you. It is a question of decency, tolerance, and basic human rights.

Those who use nastiness, force, or attack to control your behavior must never be allowed to succeed in doing so

Have you noticed that society has become thoroughly nasty and violent? Probably since you were too young to remember, your behavior has been controlled by those who use attack against you. Of course you have tried your best to avoid being scolded, punished, or criticized. The sense of shame that comes along with it is a terrible feeling, isn’t it?

Most people will do anything to avoid nastiness, punishment, and attack—and this avoidance is exactly how we are controlled. The thought system of attack is used everywhere and all the time. Parents harshly criticize and punish, friends tease and mock, neighbors give dirty looks, and spouses and lovers play the never-ending and very ugly game of who is right and who is guilty. Then we turn on the TV and are threatened by the news. The government threatens violent punishments to implement arbitrary and ridiculous laws that we never agreed to. Even the very presence of the police and military represent a violent threat in an unjust, violent society.

Now, the new normal is a demand that we submit utterly and completely to insane, draconian rules—to cover our faces, to shut up about it or have our free speech taken away or worse. Attack is now far more common than decency or kindness. It has overtaken our lives and has imprisoned us.

The good news is that attack is a prison with no walls, constructed entirely of our own fears and perceptions. The reality of attack requires your judgment that it is real, that it is indeed to be feared, and that you are a guilty, wrong, disease-carrying sinner. The good news is that you, not the attackers, have the power to decide the reality of what you are.

You can decide to withdraw all attention from attack. Wherever it is used against you, you can ignore it and follow your heart. The peaceful, loving, and innocent are not the wrong doers. You are not a problem; rather, those who use attack are ill, they inflict great harm, and they need correction. They are miserable, live in a hell of their own creation, and attempt to trap you in it. But it is not your hell. You are free. You are life. You are truth. The hell of attack does not need to touch or control you.

The story of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the story of overcoming persecution. This is exactly what I am speaking of here. You might enjoy meditating on it this Easter. We can undo the shackles of nastiness, violence, and punishment only when we stop letting it control us. Be you. Do what you know is right. Speak the truth. Do not ever let the attacks against you stop you. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Only those who are perfectly open and honest deserve your trust and attention

It is so easy to get hooked on a news or information feed. Time and again, I have followed people and sources who seem to have special access or insight on world events. It seems that every time I begin to trust a source, time proves otherwise.

The problem is that nobody in the public eye is being entirely open and transparent. Most are intentionally deceiving the audience. Others are deceiving themselves and jumping to false conclusions. In the process, huge audiences are amassed, and new belief systems emerge that are detached from reality.

We fall for it because of a desperate need to hope or because of an addiction to fear. Unfortunately, our so-called news sources, leaders, and minor celebrities care only about one thing: growing and maintaining their audience. They are addicted to it and we are addicted to them. In the end, it is about nothing else.

Here is the reality: only those who are open and honest about everything are to be trusted. I cannot think of anyone who meets that standard. Q? No. We don’t even know who he is. The mainstream media? Right, let’s believe controlled propaganda to support the interests of the elite who own it. Donald Trump? Has he ever been entirely open or honest? We are told it is necessary—you know, top secret, art of war and all—but isn’t that how the world has always been run? Lacking transparency, no politician, government, or institution can be trusted.

I cannot think of anyone who meets the standard of being entirely open and honest about everything. People in the public eye get there by crafting an image, paying their way through, doing favors to gain access, and outright lying as they spoon-feed an audience. Those, like me, who choose not to play this sick game will never find much of an audience.

For many years, I have been putting out books, albums, podcasts, and over 1,000 blog entries—and all of it is 100% honest and open. I have put out in-depth analysis about the tragic COVID situation from the beginning—and nothing I have said is untrue. I have written about and talked about the effects of centralized authority—how it can never be trusted and how it will never serve the interests of regular people because institutions are designed to strengthen themselves. Not a message anyone wants to hear.

My material shows the simple, direct path to relationship and marriage bliss. I point the way to perfect health, inner peace, and abundance. I talk about how to live in a way that you are free, absent of suffering and crisis, and more. Furthermore, there is nothing about myself or my life that I hide. There is nothing valuable I know that will ever be held back. This is why I could not be more unpopular if I tried!

While the content I created years ago remains perfectly true and relevant with each passing day, while the ideas and teachings are powerful enough to fundamentally transform anyone’s life (if not my direct teachings, then certainly the source materials), and while all of it is entirely free—still the Abscondo project has achieved only a very minimal, fleeting following. Why? Because of ego.

95% – 99% of people in this world are in the grip of the ego. The ego does not want truth, honesty, or openness; rather, it wants to reinforce its current beliefs. The ego is vicious or highly suspicious of everyone except those on TV or in positions of institutional authority. People like me spend a lifetime trying to help others escape the ego, but awakening remains rare. The world is lost to deceit, corruption, violence, illusion, misery, and illness—and all because people continue following liars.

The truth is in you. The awakened you—when you embrace your humbled identity as love, as consciousness—are the solution to any problem. Trust your intuition, follow your inner guide, and walk with only transparent, honest, open truth-tellers. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

We have been manipulated by fearmongering and it stops here

In the old world (the one that is dying), the easiest way to capture people’s attention was to scare them. We know that every story in the news is intended to make us afraid, but most of the independent sources and so-called conspiracy theories are the same.

This fear-based communication has escalated into a never-ending argument about what we are going to die from, how we are going to be made slaves, and how hopeless it all is. These information sources have succeeded at capturing our red-alert level attention, but we are left feeling powerless and at the mercy of supposed forces we cannot possibly defeat.

While it is utterly impossible for any of us to either end the flu or defeat corruption and brutality in the world, we have blamed each other for a predicament that was created by the fear-based information sources, themselves. If we had not exposed ourselves to this toxic information, there would be no problem. The fear-based information is the virus, and the source of our enslavement and misery.

I have unfollowed anyone who has spread stories of doom and gloom. Facebook is impossible. I will avoid all news. I will avoid all entertainment where masks are worn (which pulls us back down into the memory of this insanity). I will turn off all content that causes fear or low energy. If they want my attention, they will need to be honest and transparent.

Is this living in an illusion? No, the opposite. The real world is the one of love, nature, beauty, creativity, openness, and freedom. For thousands of years, they have created false idols designed to steal reality from us by causing stress and fear. While their methods vary, one truth remains: the fear-based manipulators only have power if we agree to give them our attention.

In reality, you are invulnerable and eternal. Let go of any content or ideas that pull you away from joy. Your joy is your natural state, your strength, and the ultimate realization of you and your potential. All answers, all solutions, all reality is found in the light. You know you are embracing the light when you feel uplifted, when you are smiling and laughing, when you are yourself, when you are unafraid of tomorrow or what anybody might think of you. Rise up, and do not give in to the darkness of fear. Delete the fear wherever it exists. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

All confusion arises from the conflict between the reality of love and the illusion of fear

Today, I am re-committing to a life absent of fear. I recognize that, when I have allowed any fear to become real for me, then I am cut off from the divine, I am paralyzed as a creator, I am lost in confusion, and serve no purpose.

I also realize that fearful ideas and stories are no guide at all. I can easily navigate any situation and make any decision correctly without fearful details. I don’t need to understand how dangerous a vaccine is to know that I do not need a vaccine and am free to make my own choice on the matter. I don’t need to understand the sick and brutal truths about the powerful and corrupt when I know that total safety is the eternal reality for those who always forgive and do not attack.

Many try to capture your attention with fearful messages. There is always a moral justification for this, but causing fear is always cruel because it leaves you lost, stagnant, and depressed. I have only been happy in life when I have filtered out fear entirely. I withdraw attention from the news. I disengage from the dark, frightening conspiracy theories about things we cannot know for sure. I shift all my attention to the value system and thought system of perfect love.

All that is not loving is false, insane, and does not even exist. Love is truth, beauty, safety, freedom, and everything we do want. Love is light, and it cannot be conquered by the darkness of fear. But join in that darkness, and you may become lost.

My only purpose is to love, and from the perspective of love to always be creating. Raising children lovingly is one of the most creative endeavors because they, in turn, will love and create. Sharing this message with others is the same. I will create in music, in writing, in other art forms, and in my work. I will create visibly and in private, both in this life and beyond.

All confusion arises from the conflict between the reality of love and the illusion of fear. Today I am leaving no more room for confusion. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How to write a great song

Most people do not just wake up one day and decide to write a song. Most importantly, songwriters are huge music fans. We are deeply moved by music—to the extent that we know exactly what we like and dislike, regardless of a song’s popularity, public status, or the opinions of our friends.

A songwriter is someone who so loves music that you constantly sing along. One day, you decide that singing is not enough. You pick up a guitar for the first time, or sit in front of the keyboard, and you begin the long, enjoyable (but at first challenging) process of learning to play the songs you love.

As time goes by, you continue to build a massive music collection / soundtrack to your life. You also learn the chords and play almost every day. Without any goals or intentions, you gradually get better over the years.

One day, you become a little bored with the idea of learning to play yet another cover song. You start playing around with some of the chord progressions used in your favorite songs. You try different combinations, guided only by what sounds good to you. Eventually, you come across something that sounds so good that you get a bit excited.

From this beautiful feeling of inspiration, and without any thought, you sing whatever comes to your mind. You play and experiment with the melodies, just as you did with the chords, until you find something that inspires you further and makes you feel even more excited. You take out the voice recorder app on your phone and capture it. Do not forget to say what the chords are at the end of your little demo (you might forget later).

Now you have the foundation for a song. On a few occasions, I was able to create an entire song that felt complete this easily. Most of the time, I take the foundation and go to my laptop to start writing. This can be done the same day, or you can wait a while and listen to the demo again to see if you still like it.

While this final stage of the songwriting process involves some work, it is important that you feel good during the process. If you are not enjoying it, just stop. Nothing beautiful can be created from a place of not feeling good—and the purpose of great music is to inspire, to invoke awareness of beauty, and to communicate in the language of emotion.

Guided entirely by your own intuition and tastes, you continue to play with the words and melodies. If what you hear is not awesome, try something else. If it feels perfect, leave it. If you feel differently about it next week, change it. Keep going between your instrument and your computer until every part of the song, all the transitions, the whole thing feels even better than the songs you like. If you hit a brick wall, just put that song aside and come back later if you feel inspired.

You may spend years writing songs and very few become so great that they are better than what you listen to. Not every song turns out. Organize them into category A, B, and C. Keep writing. Play the best songs for your friends. Play them on your own. Notice which ones you want to play most. Enjoy the music and your accomplishment. You are a songwriter.

Great songwriting is a natural, unplanned, slowly evolving journey undertaken by the true music fan. In my experience, the best songs are written by music fans, not trained musicians. Too often, professionally trained musicians have become detached from their musical taste. Their tastes are corrupted by the external authorities (teachers). The trained musician fears making a mistake, not being good enough, and the process isn’t as playful.

Through the enjoyable, slow process I have described, the required technical aspects of music are understood at a deep enough level to create beauty. Too much analysis and technical perfection detracts from what gives music its value: its ability to emotionally communicate. For example, if a song is written from ambition, it will annoy the listeners with the emotion of ambition. If a song is written to be technically impressive, it will weigh the listeners down and fail to lift them up emotionally.

You want to write songs that leave your audience feeling inspired, positive, free, playful, and confident enough to trust their own feelings. This is communication, and true communication can only happen between two people who are honest and open. Greatness must be real and genuine. There is no hack, and you cannot fake it.   

One day, you become bored with just writing. Now you decide to record. Perhaps that is a different post. Have fun with your songwriting. Check out Abscondo music anywhere you normally find music! We continue, in truth, beauty, and freedom, tomorrow and each day after that.

What is my moral obligation to speak out and to tell the truth about Coronavirus?

If you are a healthcare worker, law enforcement officer, member of the military, government, or any private organization—and if you have come to the conclusion (or have evidence) that the pandemic narrative is a lie—then you are morally obligated to speak out, to tell the truth, do the right thing, and to accept any consequences.

Yes, we are all afraid of losing a source of income or being shunned. Those complicit in the Nazi and Communist crimes against humanity faced the same dilemma. The few made the right decision. The majority went along with the atrocities and were forced to live with it the rest of their lives. Now, people are dying from neglect by a corrupted healthcare system. Business are being destroyed by corrupted politicians. Peoples lives, families, and relationships are being ruined. Freedom, human rights, all that is good in the world is under attack.

Taking part in any crime against humanity is far more serious than your next paycheck. If you are a good person, then do what is right. For your own sake, and for the sake of all of humanity, align with truth and sanity now. Join the millions of us who have already made this difficult decision to stand on the right side of history. Justice is coming swiftly, and to continue taking part in one of the greatest crimes against humanity is the mistake of your life.

Be brave in the knowledge that the universe protects the loving and the truthful. You have been called to step out from the darkness and awaken. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

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.

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.
