To the people in my life I was once closer to

Please know that what was real between us is still real. I remain wide open to you, and nothing real has changed.

While we have both changed, and the circumstances of our lives have too, nothing real between two people can be lost. In friendship, there is a shared treasure which is eternal and free from the changing forms, definitions, and perceptions of the world.

In all the friendships that meant so much to me along the way, I recognize that there was the good and the bad. We shared beautiful, inspiring feelings and intentions. That was the real part. Then there were the unhealthy parts—the selfishness, conflict, and so on. That is the part of me that died a while back. The part you might have valued, I assure you, is still very much alive.

Here I sit with a clear memory of the good, in a life of total honesty and freedom, and with unbreakable joy in my heart that longs to be shared.


Free and joyful despite the headlines

The leftists are now afraid because of their impossible need to trust the untrustworthy. Traditional Christians and Conservatives are now also lost in fear...forgetting what is real and what is illusion. We are alright because of our perfect knowledge of love.

The ones so terribly fearful of the future, the jab, etc. are no different from the ones so fearful of the virus. Consumed by fear and lost in illusion, they are powerless. You and I are free from this, and our perfect love also protects the ones we love. The insanity of others is not even real.

The challenge now, I believe, is not to act, not to fight anything; rather, to remain in the present moment, aligned with unconditional love, absent of fear. We need to be free and joyful despite the headlines.

Withdraw attention from insanity. This is not burying your head in the sand; rather, just the opposite. These are not just nice words and wishful thinking. No, this is the only thing you can do. Spiritually awaken. If enough of us could claim the sanity of reality, the cabal would have no power.

You who withhold your unconditional love are literally denying heaven for yourself

You are not guilty, nor is anyone. We have errored at times; but error is never anything but acting without love.

The correction for lack of love is unconditional love. Only light undoes darkness and only love undoes sin. To love unconditionally is to forgive.

There is, therefore, no reason to ever withhold unconditional love. While the world would convince you otherwise, this love-starved world is clearly not heaven and does not understand the lesson.

The truth can only be loving because only love is true

People are afraid of perfect honesty because we are afraid of getting hurt. This is shortsighted because, in the end, only perfect love can be the truth.

Honesty, however, is a process—an ongoing process, a thought system, a radically different way of life. Whenever two people begin to practice perfect honesty, at first it can hurt. But the only thing getting hurt is the ego.

The ego—with its faith in guilt, attack, specialness, superiority, and brutal selfishness—hurts like hell when it is exposed because looking at your own nastiness and ugliness is painful. When two people allow the ego to be fully exposed—when they accept it and look at it honestly—what they will ultimately see is something they do not want. Facing the truth is the undoing of ego.

All the things we are afraid to confront, the hidden thoughts and secrets we are slaves to—these are only unreal illusions. In the ultimate reality, everything the ego makes is nothing and, therefore, should not be valued or respected as something.

When two people keep going more deeply into honesty, what is ultimately revealed is perfect truth: which is and can only be unconditional love.

The path to salvation, awakening, enlightenment, unconditional love—whatever you want to call it—is and can only be the path of honesty. Honesty is the undoing of all the errors which block love.

In a constant struggle to make real what is not real, and true what is not true, you find only suffering

Non-resistance, or acceptance of what is, simply means allowing what is real to be what is true. This realness includes not only the external reality of what happens, not only the thoughts and feelings of others, but also the truth about our own thoughts and feelings. We can let it all be as it is and flow as it does.

While this approach to life would seem obviously superior to the alternative, to the ego it is impossible. The ego is the struggle against reality and the foolish attempt to make true what is not true. Despite the ego’s best intentions, attempting to make illusion real can only lead to ongoing suffering followed by eventual crisis.

Non-resistance is not our diminishment; rather, a decision to come alive in joy. This is love, freedom, and everything we do want. The only requirement is the decision to be honest and to want only truth.

What we are talking about is only sanity – the acceptance of reality as real. Only because of the ego’s grip, sanity is elusive, and the world remains in suffering.

The goal is to become healthy, strong and happy. The rest is bullshit. (Wim Hof)

How much of your attention each day leaks into the bullshit category? How much of it is directed at what makes you healthy, strong and happy? I am sure we all can do better.

Notice the content you consume. How much of it is fear porn (e.g., the news)? Notice your low energy conversations (small talk, gossip). How much time do you dedicate to healthy practices such as meditation, eating right, exercising properly, learning something new, and sleeping well?

Russell Brand says, “Most people don’t believe it is possible to be happy.” Yes, we’ve been conditioned by a sick society to believe in hard work, sacrifice, and that relief is found in bad habits. Life then becomes a spiral of increased suffering.

Yet ongoing happiness is possible. This is your natural state of being—not in the future, but now. The way to get there now is to focus on what makes you healthy, strong and happy. Withdraw attention from the bullshit. Yes, drop out of society and cut all ties to the sick normal. Instead, seek and experiment with practices that make you healthy.

For nutrition and exercise, I highly recommend watching the videos put out by Dr. Sten Ekberg.

To become stronger (in addition to healthy practices), work toward becoming financially independent by breaking free from the employment model. Find a way to generate income from multiple sources so you’re not dependent upon one.

To be happy, learn what love is, open your heart and mind, practice unconditional acceptance, forgiveness, and honesty in your relationships. Allow yourself some adventure, some breaking the rules, just notice how it makes you feel and make corrections.

Ongoing happiness, or joy, is impossible without a spiritual practice. Read / listen to my work, A Course in Miracles, or Eckhart Tolle. Enjoy teachings from multiple sources, even different religions. The truth is the same but spoken many ways. Embrace that which resonates with your intuition. Follow it. Put it into practice.

You can’t change the world, but you can change yourself. And by changing yourself, you change the world.

Now I am free

I will create no more pain, no more suffering.
Now I know what the ego is and have learned to ignore its insanity by not following its stream of thought.
Now I know that attack—even mild forms such as reward and punishment—only causes more suffering and teaches only more violence.
Now I know that there is nothing and no one to be possessed in this world. I let go and let all things be.
Now I know that giving and receiving is the same act.
Now I rest in the silence and stillness between all the stuff, all the events, all the noise.
Now I know that the thought system of love contains all knowing. All that is not love is error to be corrected through love.
Now I know that all the universe exists in this present moment—right where it has always been. Time is merely a way to measure the movement of matter and a practical way for humans to function.
Now I know that a stressful and fearful mind is what causes illness and disease.
Now I know that the great Tao, God, or whatever you want to call it, exists within the imperceptible spaciousness within us and throughout the universe.
Now I cannot know what is good or bad. There is a natural balance to things, there is a curriculum, and I need only respond to all of life with love.
Now I have awakened to experience heaven—the spacious dimension of peace that exists beyond human drama.
Now I am free. I will create no more pain and suffering.

The loneliest people...

“How come no one told me
All throughout history
The loneliest people
Were the ones who always spoke the truth”
-Kings of Convenience (song: Misread)

The more I speak the truth, the fewer people who want anything to do with me. I am grateful for a those few deep, perfect, loving relationships. However, it saddens me to think about the countless people I have known who have rejected the type of honest, open, loving, close friendship I offer freely. Why?

How is it that people hide away in depression, are overwhelmed with stress, and are burdened with seemingly insurmountable problems when the truth is that perfect joy is so easily attainable with one specific decision?

Those of us who have found the truth about love / truth / reality / ego—who have genuinely awakened spiritually—know that nobody wants to end their suffering. They so desperately cling to it that our message of love, joy, perfect health and peace is unwelcomed. All communication is then broken. They think that we don’t understand them and their “reality”. So, we no longer matter.

I find it so very sad. I offer only unconditional love, patience, and understanding. I want to celebrate and discuss everything beautiful, everything that matters. I want to smile and laugh together. To overcome the world’s darkness with our inner light. So very few are willing to accept any of this.

And yet, regardless of our individual decisions, the truth remains. You will never find lasting happiness unless you are willing to destroy / escape the ego. You will never find peace and experience true beauty unless you are willing to fully embrace and align with unconditional love. You will always suffer if lost in past and future or are clinging to an identity in this world. To experience the present moment—the only reality that ever was and ever will be—you will need to meditate and maintain a daily spiritual practice. Anything that is not loving is not real—and to experience love fear must be rejected totally.

There are specific teachings that will take you all the way to salvation—perfect, ongoing joy, eternal life, the end of your problems—and to achieve this is only to humbly surrender to the higher truth. Not my truth, just the one I was humble enough to find. It is reality and is yours now and always, in love.

The best way to overcome a sick world...

I believe that the best way to overcome a sick, corrupt, fearful, violent world is to live freely and openly in love and truth.

Here are a few pics from our 10 days camping in Croatia.

Other than the perfect beach, food, and time spent together, some of the highlights were…

Watching Hungary essentially end COVID restrictions. Driving through Hungary on the way to Croatia, masks were mandatory indoors. On the way back, mask mandates had been lifted. Driving through the center of Budapest, I have never seen Hungarians so happy. No masks anywhere—not even on trollies. This tells me that nobody is afraid of COVID; rather, people wear masks because they fear the government.

Unfortunately, Slovakia went the other direction during those 10 days—suddenly requiring registration and a 2-week quarantine for anybody coming into the country. Nonetheless, we arrive at the border without registration, no PCR test, and of course no “vaccination” (we have never taken a PCR test and will never agree to the experimental vaccination). The officials at the border gave us a hard time until I said, “Do with us what you must.” Surprisingly, they immediately let us through without any further hassle.

Through these dark times, I appreciate the Slovak military and police—who have seemed to remain loyal primarily to the people rather than the insane government orders.

I wish everyone a loving, safe, beautiful, and fun summer filled with truth and inspiration. May we all be open to the truth—the whole truth. May we embrace what is coming and know that good always wins in the end. May we find strength and courage in the thought system and energy of love. May we fight for freedom by simply choosing to be free, to ignore the propaganda, to be authentic, and to love.

You see what you believe is there, and you believe it is there because you want it there. Perception has no other law than this. (A Course in Miracles)

Perception is seeing only that which you want to be true. It is to first adopt an opinion or mental position, and then to interpret the world through it. 

Vision, on the other hand, is seeing only what is real. In vision, there are no mental positions or opinions. There is no labeling of good and bad, no judgment, no guilt, no naming, no debating.

Perception is identification with the mind. Vision is of the spirit.

The thought system of perception is built upon separation, observing differences, determining who is right and wrong, who is guilty and innocent. The perceiver attempts to establish truth by convincing others through indoctrination, debate, or punishment and reward. The real result of perception is never of much concern. Suffering and destruction is tolerated as long as the perception is upheld.

Vision is beyond thought. It cannot be possessed, cannot be grasped, cannot be debated, or proven. It is the knowing of the universe which manifests itself in the balance of all things. It is beyond time, beyond form, entirely beyond our control. It was true before the world exists and it needs nothing from us to remain true. In comparison, perceptions are of no concern one way or the other. They are nothing.

In perception is struggle, chaos, endless war. In vision is the peace of God. We let go of perception and release our troubled mind to vision.
