Are basic human rights really too much to ask? Why?

When it comes to the world of the elite—those who have some power and influence over the laws, economics, and other aspects of our lives—I don’t really give a damn about who wins and who loses. I take no pleasure in this side winning, that side being punished, or about who is right.

What I want is for basic human rights to be returned to all the regular people of the world. Isn’t that something liberals and progressives used to want?

I know that the entire system has always been corrupted and rotten. But we learned to live with it. The elite did their schemes and robberies, but otherwise left us alone. They lied about wars, ruined countries, falsely locked people up…wait.

Maybe they never left us alone like I remember it. The people of China were not granted human rights. The people of Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan saw their countries ruined by invasion. South American governments allowed gangs to brutally control the streets. Americans were imprisoned at alarming rates. Global human trafficking? Europeans controlled with so much heavy-handed government regulations and arbitrary rules. Nobody was free to decide how they wanted their children educated. I guess everything was completely messed up for a long time.

All those years before, I dreamed of a way that some of us might break free from this corrupt, unjust system of oppression. I wrote about it and talked about it all the time. I ignored the mainstream media, rejected consumerism, tried my best to love God and forgive every human being. I even started a charity and built a new social media app that was supposed to create a decentralized People Economy. But nobody wanted it.

For so long, almost everyone has been lost in the sickness of ego—blindly trusting false authority while suspicious and vicious toward other people. We were all just trying to pay the bills and maybe even get ahead a little. Meanwhile, the central banks were diluting our wealth by printing money and the governments were burdening us with heavy tax demands. It wasn’t really working. Our best efforts were never quite enough, and nobody was happy.

In 2020, things got even worse. Now many of us can only dream of making a living at all, or going outside to breathe the fresh air, or enjoying a holiday, celebrating our traditions, attending a sporting event, or traveling to see family and loved ones. With the dark threat of the Great Reset looming, now we are afraid of speaking our truths. We are told by the corrupted what is true and what is not. We are meant to believe in a pandemic that is basically just a normal flu. We are forced into tests, threatened with vaccinations, and even with the ultimate removal of our very humanity via experimental injections. The vision set forth by today’s ruling elite is like life in the Soviet USSR, only far more terrifying.

So, I guess it had to come down to this battle we are in. The world was not okay before. It certainly is not okay now. As we are all wrapped up trying to understand what is going to happen, I have a few important questions:

- May we please be allowed to take care of our families?
- May we continue to speak freely?
- May we move about the world without restrictions, threat, or intimidation?
- Can we make our own decisions about our health and make decisions about our own risks?
- Can we have some say in how our children are educated?
- Can we create and serve others without being muzzled and shut down?

Abscondo Podcast #91: What happens after the Great Awakening?

With all this talk of the Great Awakening, the threat of COVID and the Great Reset, election fraud, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Trump, MAGA, MEGA, and so on...I wanted to offer the perspective of a person who has gone through his own Great Awakening almost 20 years ago. What is life like? What comes next? What other steps are required for happiness?

I forgive all because I know that error and sickness is impotent.

662b

Total healing requires only a single instant of unconditional love. This means loving every being as one—as an extension of the self—and then extending that love without any form of attack. Withholding forgiveness, punishing, blaming, shaming, making demands—this is faith in attack, not in love.

This lesson is that only unconditional love—which includes unconditional acceptance, total forgiveness, and perfect honesty—is healing. The lesson is easier to apply in the case of small errors. But how can we apply unconditional love and total forgiveness where there is child abuse, murder, violence, oppression, or corruption?

Start by remembering that only a single holy instant of your perfect love is enough for total, eternal healing. If you can do this fully once, you break the ego’s grip on your forever. You may occasionally get pulled back into fear or indignation, but you will never forget the higher truth of perfect, unconditional love. This will be your home.

I am thinking about the liars, the criminals, those who murder the innocent, yield fear as a weapon, those who rob populations of their livelihoods and traditions—I ask myself again, how am I to love these people unconditionally and forgive completely? After I experienced my holy instant—my awakening to spirituality—I can no longer believe that anything of the world has any power over perfect love (which is, in other words, the force of life, of creation—God). If I stray from love, I place my faith in the ego, I believe in the power of error, and in evil itself as a real threat.

The fallen and corrupted are those who believe in their black magic—their secrets, their bargains. And where has it delivered them to other than hell?

We are not bodies warring; this is not who we are. Our identity is in spirit. It is not in the realm of physical matter. Consciousness, itself—the “you” who is observing your thoughts, sensing your body, perceiving this world—consciousness is the same across us all. This is what is meant by “we are one”.

In spirit, we all have the same needs—and they are already fulfilled when we stop sacrificing to the ego. Those who identify with the ego desperately seek to fulfill their needs in the world. This strategy always fails because reality is non-negotiable.

I forgive all because I know that error and sickness is impotent. “Evil” has no power over the real me as eternal love, spirit, consciousness. Any correction or healing can only be done by teaching the true lesson: love, and do not attack in any form.

The only thing that is required for healing is a lack of fear. (A Course in Miracles)

“Don’t worry!” It sounds easy, right? But to achieve fearlessness is to reach the highest level of success in life.

From fear flows illness, suffering, grumpiness, anger, hate, jealousy, and all negative emotions. It is only one thing, though appears to take many forms. The only antidote to fear is love. When aligned with love—in love with yourself and all of life—fear is absent. Only fear pulls you away from love, and it is impossible to feel and to experience both love and fear at the same time. You can’t serve two masters.

If you choose to view the world around you from a position of fear, your impulse is to control everything. You fight everything. You attack and do whatever it takes to shape the world because you believe it will end suffering and stress. Has this worked so far? No, because it is impossible. The world is too complex to be controlled and too far outside of our control.

If you choose to view the world around you from a position of love, you find that love is truth. You learn that wanting this truth requires openness, honesty, and acceptance. Your role, as love, is to dissolve conflict, to create, and to serve. You can effortlessly bring positive energy and a cooler head to all situations. You can allow people and events to take their own course and respond lovingly, without trying to control.

But how? Not by trying to delude yourself. Not by establishing boundaries. Not through wishful thinking. This is all very fragile and is of the ego because it is separation. Separation is a choice for the values of death, and ultimately leads to more fear.

The answer: through faith. Faith in the power of love now, which is the divine force of life. Aligned with love, there is no stress. Therefore, no illness. Love allows you to ask real questions and receive real answers. As love, you have the power to look upon anything and transform it from dark to light by simply revealing its reality. Your relationships are unbreakable, your value clear, your eternal life built upon a foundation which is beyond threat. As love, there is nothing to fear.

This isn’t easy as an ongoing state, but even a holy instant spent aligned with perfect love is the miracle. Perfect love is a daily practice—a spiritual practice. This is what we are doing here.

It is a fundamental error to believe that deception can defeat the truth

Deception only leads to victory when it is in competition with different deception. In the battle between two illusions, two liars, one may appear to win or gain something. But, when pitted against the truth, the deceiver always loses.

The warrior yielding the truth always wins—but that truth must be nearly total and absolute. In worldly battles, the truth must include evidence and logical consistency. In the spiritual realm, the truth must be loving, beautiful, self-evident, and beyond debate. When there is a marriage between worldly truth and spiritual truth, the power is such that any enemy is defeated just as quickly as the deceit is revealed.

When you have been steamrolled by truth, the only possible outcome is surrender and immediate correction. To continue to fight is to fall harder. But if you surrender, if you come to the light to confess and atone, you will be forgiven because forgiveness is also part of the truth.

A fundamental error in business, politics, relationships, and life is to believe that deception can defeat the truth. Reality ensures that there is no competition at all.

Truth has no agenda

This is exactly it. Truth is. It is beyond debate.

No one needs to agree with the truth for it to remain true.

It needs no defense, but for healing to occur it must be revealed.

Just give me the truth! Let me help reveal it.

When brought into the light, even ugly truth is instantly corrected and has no power.

How does this happen? Through love, our true identity, the energy of life, itself.

Truth, honesty, love, beauty, God--it is all one and the same. This is reality.

To bend the truth at all, ever, is to reject reality. Agenda is of the ego, and it is always an error.

I choose to live in truth and honesty, believing in no agenda, feeling to need to manipulate. This total diminishment of my false identity allows the reveal of my real one.

There is nothing anyone can do that you can’t do

To believe you cannot do something is to believe that there are those above you with more authority—that they will not let you. Untrue. All authority lies within.

Or do you believe success is impossible because you were not born into the club? Trust me, that is a club you would not enjoy spending a moment in. Your true accomplishments are an honest response to your intuition—not resulting from the expectations of a community you belong to.

The only way to fail is to stop making progress. We give up when naïve enthusiasm is followed by hopeless despair. This happens when you believe that your happiness requires the accomplishment of some extraordinary goal. What you are working toward is important, but never more important than the eternal now—this moment. Find peace with the present moment. Feel good here as you keep going.

Also remember, nothing can be accomplished on your own. Anything real requires other people and a coming together. You need customers, an audience, suppliers, partners. Every tool we use to do anything was created by a countless number of people. Joining together is how things get done—but it demands openness and honesty, as well as acceptance. Trust is what happens when this goes both ways. Success is what follows.

Now, in this moment, you are free. But only in love. Only in honesty. This is how we claim our God-given authority, how we harness strength and courage, how we experience things and achieve things we could never even have imagined.

Why are most people unwilling to see the truth?

If you are like most people, you might sometimes avoid the truth to protect yourself emotionally. To stop anything from ruining your mood, you avoid difficult topics and conversations. In the short term, this seems to work. In the long term, you suffer more.

Avoiding the truth is like hearing strange sounds in the basement but deciding not to go down and check it out. While you put off that terrifying moment of confronting your worst fear; your lower-level suffering will only nag you until you deal with it.

Normal people go through life afraid and in the dark. When talking to loved ones, they claim to want honesty—then respond by harshly judging, or even punishing the person for giving it. They claim to want to stay informed about world events, yet are only willing to consider the usual, corporate, mainstream sources of information deemed safe by authority. While all this is done to protect emotions, it has the opposite effect.

Now important aspects of your relationships are hidden. The other party suffers. Your closeness is undermined. You are losing the person. This approach causes toxic and eventually broken relationships by undermining the basic conditions required for a strong relationship.

Also, in the state of not wanting the truth, significant world events are completely misunderstood. Everything seems senseless and chaotic. Worse yet, you are allowing terrible things to happen in the world because you don’t want to know about it. Massive crimes are committed, people suffer the consequences, and only because most people don’t want the truth.

All the while, the ones in the dark suffer more than the ones who know.

The life experience of a truth-seeker is superior. We ask for total honesty and openness in our relationships and never punish anyone for giving it. We seek to know what is really happening in the world. We entertain conspiracy theories while rejecting the ones that don’t make sense. We look at who is funding what, who a person works for, what is their track record, why are they doing this or saying that. We come to our own conclusions—which we are always willing to change with new information.

By wanting the truth, being honest, and accepting reality, you suffer far less. Suffering lives in the darkness. Those who want the truth shine light on darkness. When this happens, reality is understood, things are in the open, and the problems are dealt with. All the while, there is little confusion. You know what is going on, what is likely to happen, and what you are going to do about it when it does. You handle your emotions ahead of time and are prepared to confront situations as they arise.

This Great Awakening is happening because more people have decided to want truth. This changes things so fundamentally that the criminals who have been running the world can no longer operate. The darkness is vanishing. To end suffering in our lives and in the world, we need to be honest and want truth—even the ugly truth.

The miracle is love

Each moment, we face a choice between fear and love. Fear causes low energy. It generates stress that sickens and weakens the body. Causes negativity and makes us distrusting and judgmental. Here life becomes impossibe. Keep fear real for long and it consumes you.

The function of the world is to make us fearful. Our function is to overcome it. Only love casts out fear; healing the mind and body. Through the power of love, you create joy and beauty from a state of lasting peace.

Yet it is impossible to live in the world and not to fear...not to be overcome by stress at times. Fear is the world's cry for our attention. Why? Because there are situations requiring our attention.

When fear calls, it is always a call to respond in love. Love is always accepting. Always honest. Never attacks. Love is sanity and wisdom.

The Great Awakening is a new way of being in this world. We are open-minded, accepting of even ugly truth, sometimes pulled into fear. But as soon as we go there, we are learning to respond with the power of love. This is the process of healing, which is a miracle.

Slovakia testing entire population for coronavirus: report from the ground

As reported in the Financial Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal and everywhere, Slovakia is in the process of implementing an ambitious experiment to test every person. I live in the country's second largest city, Košice. I wanted to report on life during this first weekend of testing.

After days and weeks of confusion in the media, the government decided to start last week with mandatory masks everywhere (except in nature). They started a new lockdown, including the closure of restaurants and shops (though we were allowed to go to work and to nature). As day one and two of the lockdown began, nothing seemed very different except more people were wearing masks outside.

In reality, many are disobeying the mask orders. If there is a group of workers outside, none of them have masks over their mouths. In offices, people are not wearing masks. Outdoors, many people wear them around their chins and keep an eye out for the police. The good news is that the police are nowhere to be seen. They seem to be intentionally laying low, in apparent disagreement with the government (thank you police!). In parks, roughly 60% of people are wearing masks. 

On Facebook, Slovaks are more rebellious than I have ever seen them before. This was probably Europe's most obedient population. No longer. What I see is open revolt against the newly elected (just before the "pandemic") Prime Minister Igor Matovič and President Zuzana Čaputová. Interestingly, Robert Fico and his SMER opposition party (the long-time ruling party in Slovakia before this) is speaking freely against the current government and amassing a growing following.

Slovaks are angry. Many people know that, every year, roughly 2,500 people die from pneumonia. Only 176 people have died from pneumonia this year due to COVID.  It is clear to any honest person that the COVID numbers do not represent a pandemic. People are asking questions and starting to find answers. They are understanding how this, what is happening in Europe, is not about health.

Yesterday began the "mandatory testing". My family did not comply. It felt good to ignore the insanity and we felt no fear. We took a ride into nature. One of the most wonderful things about Slovakia is there is so much nature to explore and we can access it freely. On our way to the forests, we noticed some long lines for testing. The lines died down after lunch. By now, I heard that half of the country's 5.3 million people got tested.

Today, the second and final day of testing for this week, we took another ride to the park. Today, nobody was in line for testing. There were, however, a thousand people in the park we went to (many without masks and police nowhere to be seen). I don't think they will be able to get even half the population to comply with the mandatory testing.

Apparently not even 1% of yesterday's tests turned out to be positive. I've heard many doctors and health experts claim that 1% is a normal number for false positives. I'm not even sure what they are trying to accomplish with this mandatory testing. It can only prove that, based on the death rates, this is a normal flu.

Intelligent people everywhere sudpect that the lockdowns are only a conspiracy to destroy the economy. Those in charge also seem determined, sadly, to end holidays spent with family and other traditions in this culturally rich country. This seems like a dishonest attempt to implement the Great Reset, and that it will not work. People do not want it. Even as they try to cause fear and destroy our livelihood, we would rather spend time outside, speak our truth online, hang out with our family, and pray that the corrupt and confused politicians either come to their senses or come to justice.
