Stay centered

Imagine yourself stuck to this wheel.

IMG_20200326_121501_192

To reach for or cling to anything in the external world, such as status or possessions, is to move from the center of the wheel further toward its edges. 

Now imagine the wheel in motion. The more you reach, the further out toward the edge you go. While the ride is still slow, you can still hang on. But as the wheel races faster and faster, you will be become sick from the ups and downs and flung about until you eventually are thrown off.

But stay at the center and you will remain calm and still. No matter how fast the wheel turns, you will remain safe and at peace. The world is spinning very fast right now. We need to find the center of the wheel.

These daily teachings will help you learn to enjoy life at the center of the wheel. It has nothing to do with discipline or will-power. There is nothing you would want that needs to be sacrificed. The way isn't hard, but it is very different.

If you let yourself be blown to and fro, you lose touch with your root. If you let restlessness move you, you lose touch with who you are. – Tao Te Ching

You have been expecting so much from yourself for a very long time. You’ve worked so hard to live up to your own expectations and to provide for the ones you so dearly love. Now it may feel as though the story of your life is beyond your control. You may feel like you are blowing in the wind and feel very restless, indeed.

Who you are is not found in anything external, nor is your strength and security. As you may even be forced to let go of the old normal, know with absolute faith that what always remains is who you are. Though it may sometimes feel otherwise, that which is real about you is changeless and beyond threat.

There is no greater gift that anyone can experience than to live in truth—to shed all that which is false or have it taken away from you—so that you are finally free to be you. The only thing you ever wanted was to feel good, to love and to be loved. This is yours now and always because it is who you are.

Please comment with any questions or feedback and I will respond.

There are no exceptions to this message because the lack of exceptions is the message. -A Course in Miracles

What is a miracle? A miracle is nothing other than an act of love. To act in love is to perform miracles.

Perfect love is joy and no suffering can be found within joy. Following what is both true and wholly desirable ought to be very easy. No sacrifice is asked of you and nothing that is real or desirable can be lost.

Nothing is easier than recognizing and embracing this truth and nothing is more difficult to resist. Yet seeking exceptions to truth and a sea of confusion is the insane goal of this world. The world has chosen enormous suffering only to walk the foolish path of trying to make random illusions real and the simple truth false. Everything of this world can be enjoyed, but only after we humble ourselves by taking the obvious step to honor truth as real.

Until this lesson is learned, the suffering will only continue to increase. That’s the purpose of suffering—to push us into anguish until the obvious, beautiful, simple lesson of love is learned. You can learn it now and join together in the healing of the entire world.

Fear is the problem, never the solution

Fear is stress, anxiety, and the root of all negative emotion. Fear taxes the body and weakens the immune system. Then we are susceptible to a virus, then still in fear we are unable to heal, then some die. Then the world responds by making everyone even more fearful than they were to begin with. What is the endgame? How do we stop this dark spiral?

This cataclysmic situation will never end until we recognize fear as the only cause and then choose the only solution, which is unconditional love. Love casts out fear.

This message may sound strange to some, but it is ancient wisdom and it wasn’t strange to Jesus. He talked a lot about love because he recognized that only love lifts us from hell. You can recognize this message and, rather than giving into fear, become Christ-like. The world needs leaders to extend perfect love and to show others the way. This is our calling and we must find the strength and courage to respond. It is no joke right now.

Danger and death will always be a part of life. It is here to teach us to overcome it with love. Recognize, only for a moment, that fear cannot possibly solve this crisis. This virus will never be purged from the planet and, even if it was, there will be another virus and endless other reasons to fear.

Do you really think the solution is to hide away from life behind our walls and our masks? If so, the systems we depend upon will be destroyed and most of the people in the world are going to die. We are alive now and we must learn to love now or we are in serious trouble. We must become brave and walk in the dignity of our divinity.

This is the most essential message and lesson of our lives. I released a podcast on this topic today which spells this out in great depth. Please search for Abscondo Podcast #80 on YouTube or wherever you normally listen to podcasts.

Here's a technology that can help you navigate the new reality

Guys, I have a piece of technology that will help us navigate the new reality. I spent way too much money designing and building this for a world that didn't exist yet. Now it does.

Use it to state any need and you will match with the right person to fulfill it. As time goes on, we are going to have needs. Because businesses are being shut down, we will need to work with other people to get things done. By the way, the app also has a currency that can be used to buy and sell favors or things.

The app isn't perfect, but it works. The only problem with it now is that iPhone users can't use the messaging feature. Everything else works. For now, use your email address as your user name and people can write to you that way.


Download "I Am by Infobeing". Please like this post so I continue to reach people and do everything you can to get the word out. Corporate platforms like Facebook and Instagram aren't going to be enough. This free app is run by a charitable foundation, not a business.

This is only going to work if we get the word out because you'll need lots of users in your community to create a real people economy. My mission is to lead the effort, but success is up to you. Please share this wherever you can and let me know what I can do to support you.

You can read in-depth about this app and the purpose of it in chapter 10 of my free eBook "The Switch".

Links to the app.

Tao Te Ching verse 12

    "The master observes the world,
    but trusts his inner vision.
    He allows things to come and go.
    His heart is open as the sky."
                                    -Lao Tzu

It would be impossible to predict where things of this world will go. What any of it means is only the meaning we give it. That which is non-essential has no real meaning. 

What is essential? Perhaps feeling good? Giving and receiving love? Expressing yourself freely? None of this comes from the world. This exists within and flows from the inner dimension.

Becoming aware of that which is essential, that which is beyond the forces and situations of the world, is learning to see with inner vision.

This too shall pass. But in the now, we are eternally free to look within. May we do so with hearts as open as the sky.
