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.

It takes an extreme spiritual practice only to achieve a somewhat sane and balanced life.

The best spiritual teachings are those that, at first sight, appear to go too far. But it is only by attempting to go too far that we stand any chance of achieving even a healthy balance.

If your lofty intention is to completely undo ego, in practice you will merely be able to recognize the ego and no longer take it seriously.

If your intention is to practice unconditional love and total honesty always, you will merely be left with relationships which are no longer abusive.

If your intention is to eliminate all fear, you will merely be able to sleep at night and to go about your day without any panic, destructive behavior or illness. Fear thoughts may creep up from time to time, but you recognize the insanity.

If your intention is to see all material form as unreal and meaningless, you will merely become mildly aware of the formless dimension of truth, God, love, and eternal peace within.

If your intention is to live fully in the present moment, you will merely bring about more enjoyment to yourself and others as you go about your day. Of course you will still have thoughts about past and future, but you will no longer seek salvation there.

Spirituality isn't about being perfect. Yet we must go all the way because there is no middle ground between truth and lies, between love and fear, and between being awake or asleep. Awakened, the challenges of the world are entirely manageable (even enjoyable) and life is in balance. But you do need to intend, with all your heart, to go all the way or you will remain under the insane, confused control of ego.

The decision to destroy ego, to no longer want it at all and to want love in its place, is the only decision that needs to be made. From there, it is necessary to read, listen to audiobooks, talks, touch this stuff every day for at least a short while.

While these teachings may seem lofty or impractical, I can assure you that they are as practical as they are true. If you can be love in all you think and do, you risk nothing real while gaining everything. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Why I am not normal (January 27th, 2021 | Abscondo Podcast #97)

 

Abscondo Podcast (1)

People are very nasty toward anybody speaking freely these days. So why do we do it? Truth-tellers are probably the least popular people in the world (myself included). But the benefits far outweigh this one drawback.

The prizes for those willing to look beyond conventional wisdom and mainstream institutions are huge. Consider a few examples:

  • Health & Diet: if you eat the corporate food that is advertised (the normal, mainstream diet), you will be obese and sick. The diet tips in the magazines will make you only fatter. Their conventional wisdom is exactly wrong. Also, if you trust the healthcare system and take the prescription medications they peddle, your entire body will be a mess. Eat only real food and you will be perfectly healthy.

  • Work & Financial: conventional wisdom tells us to sacrifice in school, work hard, get a good job, and someday you will have plenty of money and be happy—that it will all be worth it. Not so. Start your own business. Work smarter, not harder. Tell your kids the same and their lives will be a true success. Also, those who are interested in conspiracy theories have a far better understanding of finance. We understand the problem with central banking, we bought cryptocurrency early on, we know when to buy investments and when to sell. Why? Because we have access to information that isn’t in the mainstream.

  • Relationships: normal relationships—between two people who have learned nothing about love and do not know themselves fundamentally—are a disaster. But when two people throw out conventional wisdom, when they speak and want only the truth, when they set each other totally free, then perfect and eternal love is inevitable.

  • Spirituality: open-minded truth-seekers do not accept a life filled with stress, fear, or any other negative emotion. If true spiritual awakening does not occur within a traditional religion, we are willing to consider teachings that go beyond it. The result is joy, inner peace, and salvation to anyone who decides for it.

 

Oh, and basically, our lives are more fun. We live our dreams, follow our passions, experience our fantasies, and enjoy abundance in every area of life without sacrifice.

Yet people love to attack someone like me. They say I need help. I’m insane. I’m an idiot. I can feel their anger, frustration, and hatred—which kind of proves the very point I am trying to make.

This is not about being right. I could give a damn about being right. This is not about growing an audience or making money (if so, I wouldn’t be standing behind unpopular truths while I give it all away for free).

The Abscondo project is my attempt to share the wonderful things I’ve learned about life. I am showing you that, if you put this into practice, life can be wonderful. But fair warning: you might not be as popular among miserable people. More on today's podcast:

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.
