Men have learned to so easily back away from our truths

 

448

Men have been convinced to hide our truths about our wants, needs, and desires. We withhold honesty all the time because we are told that our truths are somehow wrong.

This makes it impossible for us to enjoy life. Rather than openly being who we are, we choose to suppress it. When this fails, we lie, we cheat, we do whatever it takes to be who we truly are and to fulfill our real needs in secret.

The problem is that secrets and lies are always eventually exposed. Dishonesty is the cause of crisis, because crisis is exactly what happens when the truth exposes a lie.
 
There is nothing wrong with us to begin with and nothing we need to hide. Every person has a right to be who he or she is. If you feel this message, check out my eBook called The Switch.

"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 you place any limits on truth, you will not have it.

If you want perfect honesty, you will need to learn unconditional acceptance. Of course, no matter which path you choose (rules or acceptance), the truth will remain true regardless. Seen in this light, the choice for acceptance is quite clear.

Truth cannot be changed by your attempts to deny it or desire to change it. If there are rules or taboos—and particularly if there are threats of punishment along with it—truth has been forced into hiding and dishonesty is likely to emerge in any relationship.

Agreeing to any rule is, in effect, agreeing that you might eventually have to lie. Setting a rule or making anything taboo is asking the other person to lie. Do you value knowing or not knowing? If you value knowing, then don’t make knowing impossible by setting limits on truth.

You are loved for the truth in you.

Pitch 8

To find perfect love and happiness in life, you need to do just one thing. This isn’t hard, but it is very different.

Think about this: whenever you have chosen to be less than honest about anything, you have created suffering. Not only does withholding honesty cause ongoing worry and stress, you ultimately face crisis whenever the truth is exposed, right?

I’m sure your dishonesty is well-intentioned. But it always ends up making you feel vulnerable, fearful, and unfree because you are working so hard trying to make illusion real. This is an impossible goal.

The world is suffering and very sick because we continue to choose so much dishonesty. Only perfect honesty heals by breaking the cycle of suffering and crisis.

I want to share with you a powerful new eBook that will show you there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you or with your truths. This book reveals a radically different thought system that enables you to live in perfect honesty.

Come out of the dark. Tell your truth and live it.

Coming soon is the new eBook and Audiobook called The Switch—which teaches all the perspectives and tools you need to find lasting happiness in your life through the power of perfect honesty. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rest does not come from sleeping, but from waking. (A Course in Miracles).

“The world is very tired because it is the idea of weariness.” The idea of the world is that our purpose is to sacrifice. We think that our goal is to tolerate the maximum level suffering and discomfort because of rewards and punishments.

Schools keep little children in frustrated obedience for too long. Employers keep us at work even longer and pay us as little as possible. Governments make strict laws and tax us to the highest level we can stand. Relationships and marriages come with too many demands and expectations in return for too little joy and bliss. We are asked to sacrifice, always sacrifice, and we have complied as though our lives have no purpose or value.

All this sacrifice is making us so tired that sleep doesn’t even help. We live for the weekends, but just as the dark clouds of sacrifice part and any inspiration appears we are sent back into the sacrifice. In a way this is done to us, in a way we do it to ourselves.

Tolerance for sacrifice is not the purpose of your life. Furthermore, you will never reach happiness through sacrifice, rather; only still more sacrifice. The only way to break free from this dreadful cycle is to remember your spiritual identity and simply begin to live in truth.

You are spirit, not the voice in your mind. Your first priority is to feel good now, not in the past or future. Love is everything, and through love comes perfect knowledge, freedom and abundance. You forgive yourself and others. You break free from this dreadful isolation, you stop competing, attacking, and being right. You connect, you accept others, you give, you create regardless of what anybody thinks.

Now you can accept, without any judgment, the drastic changes coming your way. Now you have chosen the way of spirit and this requires no sacrifice. Rest in joy.

Stress is caused by being here but wanting to be there. (Eckhart Tolle)

“Or being in the present but wanting to be in the future. It’s a split that tears you apart inside.”

That terrible feeling of stress, frustration, and anxiety is your body telling you that something is wrong. You have forgotten that now is all there is, all there ever was, and all there ever will be.

To be stressed is to believe that you need a different set of external circumstances before you can be happy. But if you are seeking liberation in external form, you will continue to seek for a lifetime—experiencing only brief, temporary relief from the agony. You’ll feel split, torn apart, like something is dreadfully wrong.

“To create and live with such a split is insane. The fact that everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it any less insane.”

When you feel that you have no power, like you are adrift on a stormy sea—it can only be that you have forgotten what is real. Your faith is in external form, in idols, in the realm of the impermanent. This is an error and it can easily be corrected. You do have power in every situation. You can either leave the situation, do something about it, or fully surrender to it and let it be. Those are your options. Why stress?

You cannot be threatened by any external situation or condition imposed upon you. You are the source of power because you are the force of life. What is real about you cannot be threatened by anyone or anything. Remember this as you go deeply into the fear, the stress, the anxiety. Access the power of now, know that everything is happening for you not to you, and stress will dissolve. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Little faith is put in them whose faith is small. (Tao Te Ching)

36

“Faith” is one of those words (much like the word “God”) that has been so badly misused it has almost lost all meaning. No word is truth, but when language is used properly, it can point to truth.

There are two basic types of words: “love words” and then the opposite, which are “fear words”. Faith is a love word and it means the same thing as awakening, awareness, consciousness, permanence, or freedom. True faith is a knowing awareness absent of doubt—an unshakable alignment with unconditional love. You know that you are spirit and not ego. This knowing is unchanging and cannot be threatened by external conditions.

The world tests us. Life is supposed to be hard so that we learn faith. Without faith, others cannot trust you. You cannot be depended upon because you can’t even rely on yourself. You attack, blame, and shame as if you were teaching something. You separate yourself from others and fall into depression. You lie, you cheat, you rationalize as you carelessly harm. These errors, this insanity is considered normal behavior because normal people do not have faith. Faith is not an abstract concept; rather, a state that is easily obtained when you escape ego.

When you know who you are in a way that is unchanging, you do not fall back to the errors of ego. You remain at the center of the wheel, calmly and quietly serving others, effortlessly channeling your energy to the expansion of creation. You have let go of fear because you are pure life—a ray of light. Now others can easily put their faith in you, they trust you, you are helpful, you can lead. Faith is success in life.

Because he is no competitor, no one in the world can compete with him. (Tao Te Ching)

You cannot lose at a game you refuse to play. Only by playing does a game seem real.

To believe in competition is to believe that receiving comes through taking, that we are separate and on our own. To believe this is to limit our vision.

Competition is a fool’s game designed for the ego. By escaping the ego and identifying with spirit, you simply forget that competition is a thing. From the enlightened perspective, there is no better than or lesser than. Comparison between people is meaningless when we are already perfect and complete.

35

What matters is what you are here to do. Do that well. Serve others, don’t try to defeat them. Give to others and receive gratefully in return. Do what you do best and do it to the best of your abilities. Teach others to do the same.

Giving and receiving is the same act. Create value in this eternal present moment and receive it here in return. Have faith, have patience. Time is irrelevant here. This is the path toward abundance in both the material world and on the level of the soul. Everything you truly value is found in joining with another, while competition brings poverty by pulling us apart.

Because he is no competitor, no one in the world can compete with him. (Tao Te Ching)

Become like a fool who is blind to the idea of competition—as though competition never existed. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

If you look at any religious definition of hell, it is the same as human society. (Don Miguel Ruiz)

“Hell is a place of suffering, a place of fear, a place of war and violence, a place of judgment and no justice, a place of punishment that never ends. There are humans versus humans in a jungle of predators; humans full of judgment, full of blame, full of guilt, full of emotional poison – envy, anger, hate, sadness, suffering. We create all these little demons in our mind because we have learned to dream hell in our own life.” -Don Miguel Ruiz

For the past few thousand years, human beings have been lost in the dream of hell. We’ve even learned to call it normal and to believe that there is no other alternative.

We accept prison-like conditions in our schools and slave-like conditions at work. We enter relationships and marriages rooted in principles of abuse. We consider it all normal and inevitable. By surrendering to this hell, we even call ourselves “practical” and “grown-up”. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have been fools and it is time that we exercise our power to awaken from this terrible dream.

It is we who have the power to create the dream of our own lives! There is an alternative to this hell – a heaven which is available now to everyone. This heaven is only accessible to those who would choose freedom over slavery, love over abuse, acceptance over fear, openness over lies, acceptance over judgment, peace over attack, and healing over violence.

Choose a different thought system and experience life as heaven, not hell. Today’s is a short lesson that only scratches the surface. These previous 417 daily posts take you further, and the future teachings deeper still. There are countless books about love and spirituality. There are teachers of God. There are practices to quiet the mind. Life changes when we begin to take these practices as seriously as we have been taking the lessons which taught us this dream of hell. What dream will it be?

The special ones are all asleep; surrounded by a world of loveliness they do not see. (A Course in Miracles)

Specialness is an imaginary hell of our own creation, made up of everything we give value to that is not real.

To prove our specialness, we attempt to form an identity rooted in externalities such as our accomplishments, our possessions, our beliefs, our looks, characteristics, or other details having to do with our life situation. While some of this is mildly interesting, the truth of our identity cannot be found in these notions of specialness (nor can any lasting satisfaction or enjoyment).

Rather than seeing the clear truth of what is real, specialness would have us identify with made-up illusions about our lives and then fight to the point of exhaustion to make them so. This is a fool’s errand, because there is nothing that can be done to make illusion real. We can sacrifice, we can fight, we can ride the ups and downs, we can give it all striving for what we think is important—but it isn’t important because no real victory is found here.

What is truly wonderful about us—our real potential—flows from being. Access this by knowing that identity is in consciousness. No meaning is attached to external form which has none. If we have accomplished something, or if there are special talents or beautiful personality traits that others enjoy in us, it is because we have remained centered in the knowledge of identity.

Rooted in the oneness and sameness of being, we can enjoy all the loveliness the world has to offer. Life flows nicely without much effort. Things tend to work out. The pace accelerates because we no longer resist. We feel perfectly complete and success fills our lives not because we had to reach for it; rather, because it flows from within.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
