"The Switch" by Abscondo available now!

The way to end your problems, to stop suffering, and to avoid crisis is rather simple: choose truth and honesty instead of withholding it.

The Switch reveals the power of undoing dishonesty everywhere it exists in your life by telling the truth.

Suffering is caused by trying to make real what is not true. This is faith in illusion — a failing and impossible strategy to get what you want and to live your dreams by hiding who you really are.

Lack of honesty is not just the cause of suffering, but also crisis. Crisis is what happens in your life when the truth inevitably exposes what you have attempted to hide.

The Switch is the eBook and Audiobook for anyone interested in awakening from illusion now to end suffering and to avoid crisis. Come out from the dark. Be who you are. You are not guilty and there’s nothing wrong with you.

For $15, get the eBook PDF + access to Audiobook version of The Switch — which provides all the insights and tools you need to find lasting happiness in your life through the power of perfect honesty. In addition, the eBook also describes how to join the new global community of awakened people who share the intention of living in perfect honesty and freedom.

If the human race is to survive, it will have to go on to the next phase. (Eckhart Tolle)

If the human race is to survive, we need only remember what matters. At some level, we all know that our way of life is unsustainable, that we are on a crash course, and that at some point the collective ego will have caused so much destruction to the planet that the human race cannot survive.

What are we supposed to do about it? We don’t have the power to overthrow the government, or even the arguments to convince our neighbors to change their minds. If it all feels outside your control, that’s because it is. The good news is that there is no true power in external doing anyway. Power is, by definition, something you can control. The only realm you can control is within.

A person who has awakened to the love within can cause no harm. Here, there is no conflict, no greed, no hunger to acquire more, no need to take from another. In love, there is no miscreation of monstrosities—only creations that are useful, healthful, and beautiful. In love, there can be no lack, no brother or sister is left to suffer, no desire to cause harm to life, and no problems.

One day we will look back on life before love as if it were only a terrible dream. Until then, we continue bringing the light of love tomorrow and each day after that.

Ego is the only problem

We start movements, join causes, and we try to change the world. Yet even on those rare occasions when a battle is won, nothing ever seems to change.

Throughout history, there have been countless revolutions. At first, the cause seems noble and promising. In time, the new leaders and their new systems end up just as oppressive and corrupt as the previous ones. Is real change even possible? Can there be a real revolution that fundamentally changes the world by solving the core problem?

The core problem that needs to be solved goes by a name: ego. Any revolution that stops short of transcending ego is no revolution at all.

The ego is violent. Egoic institutions are violent and the people in the grip of the ego are also violent. Within the ego, there is no possibility of real love, no compassion, no understanding, no acceptance, and no trust. Everyone is treated as a criminal and our thought system is based on fear, suspicion, and belief in force and punishment as a way of dealing with challenges and organizing society.

In the grip of ego, people are badly suffering. The conditioned voice in the head is torturing us. The system is telling us to be afraid and then exploiting our fear. This creates so much stress that illness is normal and suffering profitable. Consumption is falsely offered as the remedy. So, we thoughtlessly sacrifice our own lives and the planet in pursuit of a happiness that never comes. Yet without ego, joy is our normal state.

For thousands of years, civilization has attempted to solve our existential crisis on the level of the external. We cling to false identities—fighting for our special causes, defending our ideas, and claiming that we are right and that others are wrong. Here there is no love—only more ego and endless war and conflict.

Any movement that arises from ego—religion included—fails to solve the core problem and only creates different manifestations of the problem. We continue to reinforce our belief in the material world and continue trying to solve existential issues on the level of form. This cannot work because the material realm is temporary and unstable. Here there can be no lasting truth. The history of civilization may be interesting, but so far it is only the predictable history of ego failure.

What would a true revolution look like? First—on the personal, inner level—this consciousness revolution is a massive shift away from fear and toward the thought system of perfect love. In love, we accept everyone unconditionally. All solutions to all problems are loving and never violent.

In love, we effortlessly give. We serve our brothers and sisters because that’s what love naturally does. We are honest and open with our neighbors because we know we are accepted. We create true value and abundance by working and creating consciously (lovingly). We instantly forgive and offer compassion. We solve problems rather than perpetuating them. We do whatever excites us (as long as it is loving) and it is okay.

If someone goes off course, we see it as a cry for love and we respond accordingly. We believe in one another because, on the level of spirit or consciousness, we are all the same and we are one. 

Now let’s look at this new society on the level of form. This, the only real revolution, would be decentralized. If there is no ego, then there can be no centralized authority that has any right to threaten or use violence against anyone. Legal rights, property rights, and the way we organize the functioning of our society would be fully democratized through decentralized systems.

If there is law enforcement and courts, it is by consent of all parties. They are setup not to punish but to offer the help needed to correct the problems lovingly. No entity has authority over anyone else and prisons are replaced with retreats to help us overcome any challenges related to ego. All problems arise from ego and all solutions are found in love. There is no sin, only error. Perfect love is the only correction to error.

Recent movements like the blockchain revolution have shown great potential to promote the shift toward decentralization—but most people are not yet ready for decentralization on a spiritual level. Freedom is decentralization. However, before people are ready for freedom, they will need to escape the violent thought system of ego.

Many Christians talk of the end of times—a Satan or devil that rules the world until Jesus returns. This devil is just a metaphor for ego (which, of course, does rule the world) and the “second coming” is not a battle—just a massive awakening from this nightmare. The “end of times” is, quite simply, awakening to the now (where time isn’t perceived as real). Unfortunately, the people waiting for the second coming are waiting for the man in the sky to appear. They are missing the metaphor.

It is not possible to serve two masters. Attempt to make some ego real and we continue to serve ego. Fortunately, more and more of us are choosing true purification—undoing all fear, all negative emotion, all greed, violence, and selfishness…not through willpower but through awakening from ego.

The only real revolution is a spiritual awakening. There are many different words, concepts, and paths toward awakening—but they all point to the same truth. When most people have aligned with the thought system of perfect love, then the real and only revolution will have already happened without a fight. The ego, and its systems, will have no power over us and we are free. Until then, let’s not hope for any real change. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

To undo the disastrous effects of tyranny, we need only awaken to being and recondition the mind to love.

We have fought the system for centuries and have been ignored. We have engaged in our so-called democracies only to watch government corruption and oppression increase while the faces change. We’ve tried to ignore it. We’ve complained about it. We know the truth about it. Still nothing changes.

But there is something we haven’t tried yet: a consciousness revolution. It is the only true and lasting revolution because it is the only loving one. If the problem is a system based on fear, then the solution is a movement based on love.

Each person who awakens—there are already millions of us around the world and growing—becomes a revolutionary without any risk or effort at all. We cannot be manipulated because we are not fearful. We cannot be lied to because anything that is not love is easily ignored. We don’t respond to threat and intimidation because we are perfectly peaceful and cause no harm. We don’t engage much with the institutions because external form doesn’t really matter. Perfect health and happiness is already present within, so the cycle of additions are broken and destructive consumption decreases.

The only problem in this world is ego. To doubt this is to believe in the system. All centralized institutions are egoic in their functioning. To engage with them is to engage in ego. No change and no victory can be found here.

Freedom is decentralized. Authority comes from within. The solutions come from us—but only when we escape our egos and ignore ego anywhere and everywhere it exists. Only our light can change the world—not through doing; rather, through being. Spread the word. Teach.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The only true revolution is a consciousness revolution.

A revolution that does not involve an escape from the ego is no revolution at all.

What about protests and uprisings? Exciting, a cause of great conflict, but activism only validates the legitimacy of centralized authority and does nothing to undo a system of egoic domination.

How about a violent overthrow? Terrifying, leaves a vacuum of power, and falls short of changing the way people think and behave.

Elections? You mean the ones run by a system of centralized authority designed to control and exploit you?

New technology? Possibly. Does it lead to the destruction of ego? Harmonious union? True abundance through creation being unleashed on a massive scale? Alignment with perfect love?

The world is insane. The wars, the exploitation, the destruction of the environment, the poverty, the general rudeness, aggression and ugliness that has become normal human interaction. Do you think any of this would change with a different party in power?

The cancer of the world is ego—a belief in separation, an identification with form which is manifested in attack. The consciousness revolution is the undoing of ego and the decentralization of a society based on the values of love.

We are currently stuck for one reason: we believe centralized authority has authority. Tomorrow we look, beyond fear, at a new social structure that is beginning to take form: decentralization.    

The consciousness revolution is the only revolution that will lead to instant, lasting, fundamental change. It isn’t something we need to fight for—only look for within. It is a silent, peaceful shift and we do not need permission. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

There is a crack in the system.

While we live in a system that is designed to domesticate and enslave us through reward and punishment, the creators of this system have also given us the choice to be free. We need only understand what freedom is and it is ours.

Freedom of religion or belief started with the U.S. Constitution and has since become an international human right. The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads:

30

Religious freedom, including any form of spiritual belief system, is freedom. Freedom and consciousness is the same thing. A person cannot be free without spiritual awareness. That’s because a person who is not conscious is dominated by ego. A person who is dominated by the ego needs threats, punishments, laws, and centralized authority. In other words: social and economic systems were designed to protect us from the spiritually unaware.

In the 227 years since the First Amendment, we have failed to understand what freedom is and how to access it. Let me get very specific: if you are doing spiritual or religious work, then your organization is legally classified as a charitable or religious not-for-profit (in the United States, a 501(c)3). Under this classification, the organization is not subject to regular income / expense reporting, not subject to paying tax, and has the right to free speech and free assembly. You are essentially left alone by the government. 

In other words, the Consciousness Revolution has already been given full permission and legal status. We need only define faith and charity beyond the stale notion of passively sitting in a church once a week listening to a preacher.

I’ll get even more specific: now we declare a spirituality, religion (i.e. organization) that includes creative pursuit and service to others (karma yoga). The right to assemble includes the right to serve each other, even to transfer value between members of a group, to connect with and love each other without the threat of interference. Awareness of our true identity, our God-essence is the ultimate religion. We who are awakened are free to practice our faith.

A perfect example of this is the “I am” mobile app, which is currently under development. We have already been granted 501(c)3 status and our intention is to create the infrastructure for the consciousness revolution. The app removes the barriers between people, allowing us to connect freely and serve each other. It also includes a cryptocurrency to freely store / trade value, as well as daily spiritual teachings. This is full decentralization. The information revolution is about to give way to the consciousness revolution.

This is a shift away from religions of passive faith within a system of slavery. Now we escape the ego and claim the freedom that has been our legal right for hundreds of years.

Perhaps the ruling elite have long understood something that we are only just becoming aware of: a person who awakens has the right to be free. A fully-conscious person is not a threat to anyone and no longer need be bound by the institutions that others depend upon. We are perfect love, we are giving and creative, and freedom is our natural state. There is a crack in the system and the light is about to shine through. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
