This is no time for despair!

The following text from A Course in Miracles caught my attention today:

T-30.V.9. “An ancient hate is passing from the world. And with it goes all hatred and all fear. Look back no longer, for what lies ahead is all you ever wanted in your heart. Give up the world! But not to sacrifice. You never wanted it. What happiness have you sought here that did not bring you pain? What moment of content has not been bought at fearful price in coins of suffering? Joy has no cost. It is your sacred right, and what you pay for is not happiness. Be speeded on your way by honesty…”

Exposed, the normal thought system of the world (ego) is indeed dying right now. The cause of its passing is our honesty. We are no longer fooled by the false promises of materialism and have decided against it. When we are being honest, we know that the thought system of ego pulls us away from joy and brings only pain, suffering, and crisis.

Millions of us have given up the world, which is no sacrifice at all. We have awakened to the spiritual dimension. By remembering the pure, infinite love in our hearts, we have effortlessly found all that we ever wanted. Joy has become our reality while fear and hatred have been left behind.

Millions of others, who have not yet awakened, have also lost faith in the empty promises of ego and materialism. Disillusioned, they have sunk into despair and cynicism. They are unable to express themselves, unable to create or provide anything of value, and they live in a sad state of paralysis.

The elite—those who control the government, schools, media, and other institutions—have lost control of the population. Their false promises no longer motivate us, which is why they have turned to fear. The Plandemic, the lockdowns, the terrifying mandatory vaccinations, the fraudulent elections, the Communist Great Reset—this is the final, desperate act to maintain control over a world that has recognized their illusions and is no longer playing along. This dark era cannot last because they will never offer us anything we want. The entire system—all the news and entertainment, the lessons, the conventional wisdom, this final global coupe attempt—the awakened know that it is a heap of lies upon lies.

We who have awakened can now look beyond the desperate illusion of the world, turning our attention to the disillusioned—those who have correctly shattered the old illusions but who are buying into the new ones. May we find a way to inspire and support them, for this is no time for despair!

Just because something is happening doesn’t mean it is real

I know that the battle is raging, yet I am not afraid. My eyes see the insanity, my mind understands it, yet I know that none of it is real. Reality is not today’s news, nor the opinions, nor the endless threats made against all that is good. Reality has to do with God’s permanent order, which is beyond threat.

These wars over resources, bodies and minds, and territories are the doomed conquests of those who have forgotten that all physical form changes. Those who battle in this dimension sacrifice everything for temporary illusions of grandeur at best. The outcome is always defeat, and it is always only a question of how long it takes the people to awaken.

The world’s purpose is to make us believe that the illusions made to control us are real. If we first believe that something has real power, we immediately become fearful. Only under the spell of fear are we conquered and enslaved. Our reality is entirely up to us.

We are divine spirit / consciousness—not physical bodies and minds to be conquered. When we withdraw attention from man-made illusions, when we recognize the entire realm of physical form as meaningless—then we remember joy as our natural state, love as everything, and safety as eternal.

That which is unreal has no power over me. Any fearful reaction offers me no protection; rather, is the only problem. My power and safety is in truth. To stand firm in joy and love, I forgive those who know not what they do. I rest safely in a position of strength while the enemy is destroyed by chasing their own illusions.

You are the keystone because only the free individual is capable of truth

The Greek word for “truth” is aletheia, which literally means to “un-hide” or “hiding nothing.” (source) “Truth” means telling it like it is, or openness, transparency, and honesty.

In this moment, the world is engaged in a war of information and ideas. All that we perceive as evil, scary, and wrong is that which is hidden. This is a war between not only two—but three powerful forces. As of now, only one side is fundamentally committed to the truth.

We know that there are the Globalists, the Cabal, the Chinese Communist Party, Antifa, the “Deep State” alliance of corruption who are willing to do anything to maintain their grip on power. This side is built entirely upon the shifting sand of countless, shameless lies. Their bold deceit is spun endlessly in the media that they own, told by the government officials they have corrupted, and echoed through all their institutions.

Their purpose is to exploit all resources for their own material benefit. This includes the Earth’s resources as well as the most valuable resource of all: human life. This group has dominated the world for thousands of years, but recently they have gone too far and have been meet with massive resistance.

The second force is the Patriot movement—MAGA, MEGA, Trump and their allies. They are practicing the Art of War to defeat the previously mentioned group. Their intention is to purify the world’s centralized institutions and bring about greater honestly, decency, and transparency. Their ultimate goal is to expose the darkest truths, reveal the sick corruption, and reform the world by re-establishing the rule of law through strength and force if necessary.

It is important to notice that even this group is not committed to truth. They are carrying out a master strategy to soundly defeat the enemy for the good of the people—restoring integrity, human rights, freedom, and opportunity. People like me are in full support of their efforts but are often frustrated by their lack of transparency. We don’t know what is really going on. We are being asked to trust and to decode their messages, but because of the lack of honesty and openness, the process weighs heavily on morale.

The third group is the awakened people. Our faith is in love, in God, in truth and goodness. We do not trust any centralized institution and are at least a little skeptical about whether the MAGA / MEGA / NESARA / GESARA plan can work. Even if they catch the bad guys, can a government, institution, even a religion be free from corruption when the very nature of centralization breeds secrecy and makes corruption inevitable? The goal they are seeking has probably never been attained yet in the history of the world.

We want the truth—the full truth—because we know that this is the only way to heal. By revealing the world’s lies and illusions, what remains is the truth of love. Love is the response to every challenge and contains the total, complete thought system of wisdom. Learn what perfect, unconditional love is and what it does—then put it into practice—and you will have walked the one and only path of salvation. Destroy ego. Trust only in your own, divine authority. Speak and want only the truth. Love unconditionally and accept reality.

We, the millions taking part in this Great Awakening, are the only authority and the only force of good. We are called upon to create and live the reality of truth—of decentralization and freedom now. Trump / MAGA is, at best, our ally (not our savior). We, as individuals and together, must walk in spiritual truth now and never back down. We must join in full and complete union, reveal every lie, speak every word of honesty, connect with our inner inspiration, and live it.

As you undergo this shift, you enable those with institutional power to become a force that might fight corruption and purify institutions. But in the end, you are the keystone because only the free individual is capable of truth.

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.

Personal liberty is required for life to have meaning

What is our purpose? Are we nothing more than a cog in a system? Are we here to follow the rules of the system, to withhold honesty, to obey authority, and to be exploited so that others in positions of power can live in unimaginable luxury? No.

We are each a unique genetic mutation, born to express ourselves fully so that the universe can learn. While we are fundamentally all the same and connected as one through consciousness, it is also true that the experience of being human is very different for each of us. It is through that different experience, and our different reactions to that experience, that we bring value.

No moment that I have experienced is the same as your moments. No perspective is identical, because the way we perceive the present moment is at least partially influenced by the accumulation of everything we have experienced throughout life. We are also influenced by our different personality types, different cultures, tastes, and so much more. To the extent that we bring a different perspective to the body of knowledge, our lives are successful.

Personal liberty is everything—a fundamental requirement for life to have meaning. When we are guaranteed human rights such as freedom of speech and assembly—when the exercise of free will is permitted in society—only then can we fulfill our natural function.

To accept conformity and forced obedience is to accept death, itself. It is the denial of the very purpose and meaning of life. Oppression must never be accepted for any reason. Love is the miracle that unlocks life’s full potential. Love sets us free, nourishes us with energy, inspires us to express ourselves, to serve, and to create.

Enjoy the miracle unfolding in the present world. Will that the forces of darkness, corruption, and oppression be gone and do not doubt the renewed path of love and freedom before you.

The laws that held you prisoner to pain and death must be forgotten. (A Course in Miracles)

The thought system of the ego is held together with rules that can only result in misery. One of the fundamental errors of ego is belief in salvation through sacrifice. With the principle of sacrifice in place, what else but pain, misery and death can follow? What is sacrifice, after all, but the exchange of what you do want for that which you do not?

The only justification for such an insane belief is that somehow, magically, in the future, you will have sacrificed enough and will be somehow rewarded with your treasure. Yet the treasure you seek is forever within you and was never lost (only sacrificed). Here there is a clear problem with cause and effect. If you look logically at this, your ego cannot survive.

There is a voice in the head that drives us mad with a narrative of fear and guilt. This is the ego. The voice is silent, yet still loud enough to fill the mind and body with enough negative emotions and suffering that we are driven to madness. The purpose of the ego is always your enslavement.

What is astounding is that this insane thought system is not yours at all. The voice in the head sounds like yours, but the ego’s thought system was relentlessly taught to you through endless repetition by those who have attempted to enslave you. The ego is the conditioned mind, and the conditioning was never meant to work in your advantage.

The Great Awakening is the recognition of this enslavement, the full withdrawal of attention and authority from those who never deserved it, the end of sacrifice, and the beginning of joy. This undoing is a slow, frustrating, painful process. But the time has come that we break free from the chains.

To give is to share or to create; not to sacrifice

The concept of giving and charity is a common cornerstone of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and all true spiritual faiths. Perhaps no concept is more misunderstood in the secular world, where the logic goes something like this: “if I give, then I lose and the other wins”.

Seen from this perspective, secular logic would have us focus on getting or receiving rather than giving. Life is seen as a zero-sum game of winners and losers. By this narrow, limited understanding of what "giving" means, charity and generosity is apparently for losers.

The best form of giving offers value to the other without personal sacrifice. When you create something beautiful, useful, or valuable, you are giving. In many cases, you receive a reward that is equal to the value of what you have given.

When you share, it is done from a place of inspiration. You can share ideas, music, a ride, or a meal without any sacrifice because you are enjoying the experience as much as the recipient.

Or you can start a project or business with someone—giving you both opportunities for abundance. Maybe you can hire someone to do a job that needs to be done.

Giving and receiving is best understood as a positive feedback loop between two willing parties. Never give from a place of obligation, guilt, or from a calculation of what you will get in return. Giving should be a positive act of free will that flows from the inspiration of being alive.

Charity does not require you to give what you do not have or to give in a way that you lose. Those who convince you to give in this way are exploiting you. There are countless other ways to give—not within the framework of the zero-sum game; rather, as an act of unlimited value creation.

Value flows from you—from your limitless energy, brilliance, creativity, kindness, and everything else you have to offer. You access this positive dimension of yourself by learning to love yourself. Learn about and adopt the thought system of love. Then extending it. Now you can give as life, itself, gives—as the source, which is never diminished even through limitless expansion.

There is no middle ground in any aspect of salvation. You accept it wholly or accept it not. (A Course in Miracles)

For this statement to make sense, it is necessary to consider what salvation is. What are we being saved from? In a word: ego.

Ego is belief in separation—that we are separate from God, separate from our brothers and sisters, and that our strength and happiness depend upon maintaining our separateness.

To achieve the ongoing reality of separation is impossible. We are not separate from the universe, nor from life, nor from all of reality. To believe so is to feel vulnerable and afraid. Afraid of attack, afraid of illness, afraid of poverty, afraid of death and more. This way of thinking leads to insane behaviors such as lying and manipulating others. Ego causes many to blindly trust institutions as a source of safety while remaining suspicious of their brothers and sisters.

Salvation is the undoing of your belief in separation and the humbling of yourself to reality. It is knowing that you are not your body and mind; rather, the observer. Consciousness. Love. Awareness, itself. This is your identity and it is beyond threat.

Now you recognize that what is real about all your brothers and sisters is also consciousness—this awareness that transcends all the empty space and matter in the universe. Either this is true, or separation is true. It cannot be both and there can be no confusion. When you have made your decision for salvation, then all the ego in the world has no real effect on you.

One path leads to peace, love, the recognition of beauty, creativity, abundance, and eternal life without fear. The other, to isolation, paralysis, suffering, and death. Love or fear? There is no middle ground here.

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.

The confused are all those who do not want to know the truth

There are those who want only nice thoughts and positive information. Others want to trust authority at all costs because it gives them comfort to believe. Others shun spirituality for fear of being an outcast. Most people set rules in relationships, coldly erecting barriers that prevent them from knowing what is really going on in the other person's heart, mind, or life.

Despite all these attempts at crafting a reality according to our liking, reality remains as reality. We are powerless over the truth.

Resisting truth leaves you going through life as if paddling a boat upstream. If you want your life to flow with ease, if you want to feel a sense of power and control, then accept the reality of the river. Join with the flow of the stream. Allow it to be and work with it.
