The truth shall prevail

I find it astounding how the world remains so ignorant on the topic of honesty. People do not know that lies are always eventually exposed, and that even before that—during the process of crafting and maintaining a dishonest version of reality—so much suffering is involved for yourself and others.

People think that all the suffering and sacrifice at the altar of dishonesty is a worthy price; but it never is because, in the end, nothing can be gained. The truth is eventually exposed every single time. In the end, nobody gets away with anything.

And yet we continue to lie. We lie because we believe there is some noble cause or good reason. It is so normal in the world to withhold truth just a little. But start down that road and “just a little” becomes a little more, and so on. In time, it becomes rather obvious to others that you are a fraud. Trust is eroded, authority lost, relationships broken, drama and crisis ensue, and everything falls apart.

Despite the best of intentions, even the best lies only seem to work for a while. I’m not making this up. This is how nature works. When we fall away from truth and honesty, we are living in a way that is not aligned with reality. The correction to living in such a way is always a re-balancing toward reality.

We cannot make so what isn’t so. You can push a pendulum in one direction and pretend that is its resting position. But eventually you will have to move from this position and the true resting position, determined by gravity, will become clear to all after some wild swings.

But we doubt this law of nature. We think ourselves so clever that our lies and manipulations might work. We stand holding our false pendulum positions as though we are creating reality. Yet reality refuses to bend to our wishes. There is a natural order to the universe, a perfect design to the way humans were meant to relate and communicate. To break this is to make life hell.

The politicians are the worst offenders. Every politician and party lies all the time. Worse yet, they never come clean—even in the face of disaster, even when caught red-handed. They continue to lie, despite vast numbers of people knowing the truth. Even worse than this—they continue to try to control us, make rules for us, and punish us when we error. Because they have no moral authority, they are clearly seen by the population as nothing other than violent thugs and abusers whose lives are meaningless.

Everyone does have a right to different ideologies and viewpoints. But no one has a right to manipulate the facts or events to support an agenda or ideology. The self-appointed ruling elite, the corporate media, the news, the politicians on all sides—they are living in a hell of their own making and their toxic ignorance about the nature of reality is spilling over onto us like never before. It hurts, it will not work, and can only create suffering and crisis. Everything done dishonestly ultimately fails—and the greater the lies, the harder the crash.

The world can only heal when more of us become committed to speaking the truth openly—every bit of truth about everything we are, everything we think, everything we see, everything we feel, everything we want and do. Even beyond this, we must commit to always wanting and seeking truth from everyone—no matter how inconvenient, difficult, or painful it is. To do this is to make your life real.

Truth is the same as honesty, and openness is part of it as well. I’m not talking about “deeper truth” or “universal truth”—telling the truth and wanting truth is enough. It is the path toward healing on a global level, the only thing more powerful than all the technology, media platforms, and weapons combined—the truth shall prevail. Read about this in-depth in my free eBook “The Switch”.

The problems of the world are not the result of people being true to who we are

Is a dog lacking something? A tree? A flower? Should every life form be ashamed of themselves or aspire to be something more? Should we? Just like any other creature, are we not perfectly capable of doing what we are meant to do and being as we naturally are?

The problems of the world are not the result of people being true to who we are. The problems are caused when we are either 1) violently forced into being less than ourselves, or 2) forced in a direction that is considered better or more advanced.

Parents, schools, the church, the government, the bosses, the media—everyone is always trying to shape us. There are so many rules about what we cannot do, say, or be. When we are violently forced to become less than we naturally are, we get angry, depressed, cynical, and violent.

Those very same sources of false authority then come along and tell us that we must become more. Work your way to the top, become a doctor or lawyer, earn more money, invent some big breakthrough, save the world. How absurd that we are expected to become more within a system that first forces us to become less.

To live in a system where there is no respect for personal liberty is to be violently pulled in these two directions—toward being less and being more—while the truth about your natural balance is forgotten. Remembrance of that truth is called self-love. That feeling of love within is only the feeling of rediscovering your natural state. That feeling of positive energy, joy, and bliss is the way you were supposed to feel all along if you had not been damaged by a society designed to control you by making you less and then exploit you by forcing you to become more.

A flower does not need to be pulled from the ground. To fulfill its ultimate destiny, it only needs to be born in the right soil and then left alone to become what it is. Attempt to pull it or shape it and you can only do harm.

We are already perfect and complete—born with beautiful minds, with the ability to communicate, to work, to create, to walk and run, to reproduce, and so much more. Even without corporate computers, smart phones, vaccines, and digital security systems, we are already perfect and complete. You want to save the world and restore perfect balance and health? Stop messing with everything and leave us alone.

The Great Reset, if genuine, might even work—but only after a massive apology, a total coming clean for every fictitious event and news story.

Yesterday’s post—my complete surrender to United Nations-sponsored totalitarian, global coupe as a response to COVID-19—well, my words may have seemed strange. Strange it would be, indeed, for anyone to agree with this—at least not with the way it is being carried out. If the UN and the world’s most powerful people are genuinely going forward with this plan (essentially in plain view), either they underestimated the intelligence of the population by a longshot—or still something else is going on here.

Many people around the world are monitoring and discussing the COVID numbers using their technology (Google, Facebook, etc.). We are comparing it with annual pneumonia deaths from other years, also noticing how the death rates vary in different countries—and many of us are concluding that COVID-19 is more or less a normal flu (not some terrible pandemic that would require these horribly oppressive measures that are plummeting the world economy into chaos).

Even a small amount online searching for videos having to do with Davos 2020, the Great Reset, or Klaus Schwab will leave us without any doubt that all of this is being orchestrated for the very aims they are apparently shooting for: mandatory vaccines, severe government restrictions on personal liberty, governments openly working directly with the world’s most powerful corporations. They have even gone so far as to publish a video on the UN’s own website about forcing technology upon us that reads our thoughts. Seriously, this stuff isn’t made up!

If the claims are true—that they want to create a better world, where our lives are better, safer, more comfortable—why not just get on with it? If they want to overthrow the current system, why not use their media to expose the corruption of governments and the corporations? Why not announce that employees of major corporations can now work from home, because it is fun, and that they are renovating the offices to house the homeless?

Outside the global elite, people were not happy with the state of the world. If they wanted to create a fairer, greener, more just world, why not use their media to sell the ideas and just put it into place in the open, with our consent? Why the need to senselessly scare us for a year, muzzle us with masks, kill small businesses, fund riots in major cities, etc., etc.?

If you are offering a better future, get on with it. There will be no resistance. Convince us that this green, interconnected, modern future is awesome. Instead, you chose untruth and fear, you even sensor us in your media, which breaks the relationship right from the start.

It is a law of nature that nothing real can be gained without complete openness, truth, and honesty. It doesn’t matter if you run the world’s most powerful entity—miss the mark here and your efforts are in vain. The destination you seek will never become real. It will cause only ongoing suffering and the end will always be crisis (read my free eBook “The Switch” to grasp this concept fully).

Of course the Great Reset will likely not work. It may change some things about how business operates, and hopefully even for the good. I believe Klaus Schwab genuinely wants a better world, and his idea of stakeholder capitalism is brilliant. But the population is not going to buy into this whole vision.

As soon as people become aware of the Great Reset, there will be so much resistance by everyone at every step. What they are proposing is essentially humanity’s worst nightmare (despite some nice ideas like saving the planet and greater tolerance and equality).

So, this leaves me thinking: are they really mismanaging the situation this badly, or is the plan different from how it seems on the surface. Is the real plan to mismanage everything in order to create chaos and get the population to revolt?

Is the real plan to further strengthen the position of the global elite, who remain safe inside their corporate walls, while those on the outside fight for our lives against the greatest oppression and injustice humans have faced by far? Maybe they know that human beings could never stand for this…and they are trying to instigate a destructive reaction.

As I said, I genuinely will try to accept whatever happens in the world as it is and make the best of it. But I will also greet any situation with honesty and truth—as I see it—and will be open to talking with or serving anyone in need of genuine help. You want technology to read my thoughts? Here are my thoughts. If anyone involved directly in the Great Reset is reading this...if your AI has brought this to your attention, I am glad. The technology is working correctly. You need to have a conversation with the millions of people in the world like me. 

The Great Reset, if genuine, might even work—but only after a massive apology, a total coming clean for every fictitious event and news story. How can they sincerely be trying to create a better future when the first step was to utterly erode the people’s trust?

As we watch this play out in the coming months and years, the only answer is to turn to the thought system of perfect love, to want only truth, to awaken to consciousness—the real you, which is always beyond threat or manipulation. Our soul is all we have, and it is ours in this life and beyond. I’m here for anyone who wants to discuss this—who is struggling with this.

Understanding the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and the Great Reset

Fundamental change is a difficult process for everyone. This is a painful adjustment process. Still, the best approach is to want only the truth of any situation, accept it fully as the situation, and respond from there.

If you want to make sense of COVID-19 world events, meet a gentleman named Klaus Schwab.

Copy of The supreme good is like water  which nourishes all things without trying to.

Do some quick research about what he has accomplished. Starting in 1971, he has been bringing together the world’s most powerful companies, governments, and non-profits to find ways to make the world a better place. This means creating a unified approach to tackling the problems of climate change, environmental destruction, and wealth inequality (to name a few).

Every January in Davos, Switzerland, a few thousand of the most powerful people—heads of the largest corporations, non-profits, and governments—come together to create a consensus on the direction of the world. You can watch the conference footage for yourself on YouTube, but their agenda—which has already been agreed to and is being executed—is called the Great Reset.

Klaus Schwab even published a book about it in June 2020 called “COVID-19: The Great Reset”. His organization, the World Economic Forum (which since 2019 is officially a part of the United Nations) even held a conference to explain the principles. I’ve purchased the book and will be getting fully up-to-speed in the coming days.

The basic idea behind the Great Reset is the full cooperation between governments, corporations, and NGO’s to implement a new world order through digital technologies—including pervasive surveillance, AI, 5G, apparently even human augmentation. These ideas were also presented in Klaus Schwab’s book “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” in 2016. The information is out there so I don’t need to explain it.

It is important to accept that the Great Reset has already been agreed to and set in motion. There is no going back to how life was before COVID. Essentially all the world’s most powerful institutions and leaders are busy executing on the plan. Trump and a lot of people are resisting, but this resistance will likely fail (at least in the short term).

The measures around COVID-19 are bankrupting every country, disrupting every industry, and this is part of the plan to reduce consumption and environmental destruction. The next part of the plan is to provide $10 – $11 trillion dollars in relief to create a new, green economy designed to achieve the well-intentioned goals of the UN / World Economic Forum. Even if Trump wins the election, or someone else tries to resist this, the world cannot go back to pre-COVID because the economic destruction has created the need for companies and governments to take loans (which always come with conditions).

Schwab talks a lot about how the world must now work, how businesses must now function, and he doesn’t mean it as pontification or nice advice. The system has thoroughly changed. If we want to thrive in the new economic reality—and if there is any chance for a smoother transition to a sustainable economy that we can live with—we will need to learn about what is happening and accept it on some level.

My commitment, as always, is only to speak the truth and to do so openly. I am a social entrepreneur who has already been basically living in alignment with the goals of the Great Reset (without intending to or knowing it). I share the values of saving the planet from destruction, ending injustice, and of greater inclusion (more opportunity for all and less wealth inequality). If the word’s most powerful people and institutions all agree, I trust they are doing their best to fix the obvious problems caused by free-market capitalism and corrupted democracy. The path we were on, as normal as it seemed, was an assured path to destruction and something had to be done.

While the Great Reset cause is noble, this is an extremely scary time because this experiment has never been tested. It is only a plan created by bureaucrats who have come up with a set of principles that are openly being forced upon the population without our prior knowledge or consent. It is an ideology that has been agreed to by the elite and has been implemented throughout the entire world.

I think there may be a huge gap in the plan—which is our spiritual wellbeing (i.e. “mental health”). As they continue to intentionally take down many aspects of the ego by taking away so much of what the ego enjoyed, a true thought system is needed to replace it. Humans are not just about economics. If the future is going to be one that we can live with, there will need to be an awakening to deeper truth and love—which will create joy and inner peace.

Also, constant surveillance has already been decided and is the reality. Now we will need to help those in charge to understand us, to learn about and accept the full range of who we “regular people” are as human beings. I am hopeful that they plan to allow what is real about us to flourish—that everyone involved hopefully understands our needs around intimacy, truth, and beauty. If this plan is going to succeed, they will need to allow our souls to be free even as a new economic order is imposed upon us. Otherwise, the result will be no different from that of Soviet Communism.
 
Going forward in life, my tone will not be one of resistance. This has already been done. Therefore, no judgment is needed. The deeper, universal reality works in such a way that it always has its own response to any experiment. Either something is in alignment with truth and reality, or it isn’t. Everything takes its natural course and, no matter what happens, that which is real about us is beyond threat.

So pontification about the future would be pointless. This is not easy for any of us, but maybe we can approach the new world order with an open heart and mind. I am making myself available—as exactly who I am—to take part in the new economy and to help shape a better world. I love every single person in the world and will do so in openness, truth, and honestly.

Despair is not inevitable

Every single one of us has, at times, sought happiness by chasing something, hoping for something, or fighting or something in the world. We expect a relationship to make us happy. We chase money, status, or fame to build secure lives for ourselves and our families. We pray for racial justice and equality in the world, fight against climate change, advocate for animal rights, or believe in some other moral cause because we sincerely believe it will end despair in oursèlves and the world. We then try to convince people to see things our way and we blame them for our despair when the cause fails.

But doesn't the search for happiness in the external world always end in despair? The problem is that everybody has their own opinions about how to improve the world; and each of these views continuously clash. Through this ongoing struggle, there are advances and set-backs, gains and losses. Everything is born and then dies. Nothing lasts and the end is always despair.

For thousands of years, the world’s great spiritual teachers have said that to seek happiness in the world is to worship idols and to believe in illusions. Does this mean everything is hopeless and despair is inevitable? No. There is something beyond the temporary illusion of happiness. The word for ongoing happiness without the valleys of despair is “joy”.

I don’t care whether anything I write or say helps you find joy. There is no need here for my particular words or ideas to be validated or for me to mean anything. I don’t care whether you find joy through the same teachings as I did, or through a path that is entirely different. This is not about being right. I am not special in any way.

But I do know that, if you are in despair, it is because you have not taken the journey inward to the source of truth, love, and freedom inside you. If you had done so, you would have ended hopelessness and despair and found joy.

The irony is that, when you let go of the world’s causes—when you learn to focus on who and what you tuly are—only then can you fix the world. Only then does the blissful, peaceful feeling of love effortlessly pull you toward a stillness, diminishing your tendency to pollute and destroy. Only then does your ongoing expressions of love give joy to your children, family, and friends. Only then is your energy limitless. Rooted, in service to all, you even find a way to create financial abundance and stability while creating true value and without causing harm in the world.

This external success is not the cause of your joy; rather, it is the result of first finding joy within. So, this is the alternative to despair. There are endless paths and guides to take you there, but there is only one path. It is inward.

Analysis of the Netflix documentary "The Social Dilemma". What is the real problem?

At the 3-minute mark in Netflix documentary “The Social Dilemma”, the narrator asks each of the guests, “What is the problem?” One by one, they are silent, speechless—as if looking for one word to describe the problem. There is a word to describe the real problem of social media. The word is “ego”.

The world is in the grip of ego. People use social media not to tell their truths or present an honest image; rather, to craft and project a false image. They use the tool not to strengthen bonds; rather, to be right or better than others. Furthermore, people become addicted to social media as an escape from lives of separation and loneliness.

When I was young, everyone was talking about the terrible effects of TV. We only had a few channels, with only a few shows that everybody watched. In different cultures around the world, TV shows determined what we talked about and defined the “normal” that we all tried to conform to at work and school. Yes, we were addicted, we were advertised to, and we fell for it. Isn’t social media only a continuation of this problem?

If anything, social media is less of a problem than the TV, newspaper, and radio. At least here we can express ourselves—reaching people with our art and ideas. Here we can form genuine relationships, reconnect with long lost friends and family, and efficiently stay updated on each other’s lives. If used wisely, the side-effects are minimal and there is no problem. The problem is that the ego is never wise.

Absent of ego, we approach social media with an open heart and mind. We share our truths unfiltered—showing real pictures and videos in the flow of life. We are perfectly open and honest about who we are. We come with the intention to love everyone, apologizing when we fail. The ego cannot do any of this, of course, and this is the problem. The problem is not the media; it is within.

Mainstream culture has gone completely insane. A normal flu is exposing the full extent of the insanity—and a large part of the problem is the 24/7, always-on social media that redistributes and dissects all the fear and thought-control coming from the centralized media and governments. But without ego, we remain absent of fear.

Without ego, the ads don’t persuade you and the algorithms can’t figure you out or trick you. Without ego, you are in control of your social media experience. You know that all authority flows from within and all wisdom and power flows from perfect love. But cling to ego and remain lost in fear, confusion, conflict, and isolation.

We can say the problem is social media; but no social media can be designed so well that it would save us from the problem of ego. Until the ego loses its grip, social media will amplify the problem and we can be glad that it does.

Only as a problem becomes increasingly obvious and unbearable are we inspired to fix it. The fix is the Consciousness Revolution, which will arise when the majority do what the few already have—transcend a meaningless life of suffering by destroying the ego.

Forgiveness is always the sane and correct response

To forgive is to see something wrong as only a mistake. If an error has been made, even if it is not fixed and there is no apology at all, forgiveness is always the sane and correct response. This doesn't mean you have to go along with a person or situation that you are not inspired to go along with, but the "sin" is not an offense against you to be taken personally.

So what exactly is sin? Sin is where love is not. Anything done in perfect love cannot be an error because love is perfectly honest, open, sensitive, eternally loyal, understanding, giving, and accepting. Within the thought system of love, it is impossible to sin. Sin is only possible when you forget about love as your core value and faith; when you follow the external world's insane lessons instead.

Because so few people have learned unconditional love, the world is filled with sin. The world teaches us that to easily forgive is to let someone off the hook and condone a sinful behavior. But what is the alternative to forgiveness? Non-forgiveness? Non-forgiveness means condemning a person, punishing, attacking in some way, or withdrawing love. Does it make sense to punish someone who is acting without love by withdrawing love?

When there is a genuine willingness, it is entirely possible to correct error. But correction cannot happen if there is attack or punishment because non-forgiveness insanely teaches that the real problem (withdrawal of love) is the solution. If there is non-forgiveness, the problem cannot be solved because the conditions of lovelessness are perpetuated and the ground remains fertile for terrible, disgusting behavior.

This isn't about holding someone guilty, labeling a person as bad, and then speaking the language of forgiveness when it isn't in your heart. If there is any chance of correcting the error of sin, we need to learn to see past the error not as who a person is; rather, a simple, correctable error a person has made. Anything less than total forgiveness is an attempt to make error so real that it is an identity. How can a person change when you have made their error their identity?

By the way, learning the art of forgiveness means starting with yourself. If there is anything you feel guilty of or ashamed of, if there is anything you have not forgiven yourself for, you can now give yourself permission to do so. You can love yourself unconditionally, creating the space in your heart to easily make things right, tell the truth, and to walk the bravest and truest path of all: love.

Life is beautiful and fun. It need not be taken so seriously

I fell in love with basketball in the 7th grade. Nobody forced me into it, this was my decision. From that point on, I spent 2-3 hours a day practicing every single day until I was the best around. Sure, I had huge dreams and ambitions that were ultimately never quite fulfilled. But who cares? I was just having so much fun all the while. Basketball was mine and it was magic.

Beauty is what we are all capable of when we follow our inspirations and do what excites us. Of course, we all need money and we all need to do some work. But when we understand that work has a higher purpose, when we understand why we are doing it, we can approach even the most grueling work as a free person choosing our own path. No matter how the day is going, we can adopt a positive attitude and walk the higher path.

Outside of work, let’s give ourselves permission to do only what we find exciting and inspiring. We can extend that same freedom and encouragement to our children and loved ones. I want to inspire my children to choose their own sports or art forms. I can support their growth and development in a positive way so that there is never any pressure.

When my children go out into the world—when dealing with teachers at school, coaches, friends, bullies—my job as a parent is to let them know that I am on their side. I will never side with the teacher or coach. That’s their relationship. My job is to love them unconditionally at home and create a relationship we can all enjoy. If I succeed in this mission, if they feel my love and know that love is real in the world, they will have the power and confidence to navigate their own situations and relationships. They can handle it, and I need not interfere.

The world tries to beat us up and the path through life can sometimes seem grueling. But we are always free. We can follow our inspiration. We can approach work and school with a positive attitude; with an understanding of the reasons we are doing it, keeping that higher purpose front and center even as we also know that, in eternity, none of this really means anything.
