They have attempted to enslave me, yet I am free.
They have attempted to deceive me, yet I know the truth.
They have attempted to make me sick, yet I am perfectly healthy.
They have attempted to make me afraid, yet I am joyful.
They have attempted to make me angry, yet I forgive.
They have attempted to make me poor, yet I know abundance.
They have attempted to make me weal, yet I am strong.
They have attempted to make me ignorant, yet I know.
They have attempted to make me depressed, yet I am inspired.
They have attempted to make me blind, yet I see.

None of their attempts mean anything at all. An entire world has been built to achieve what cannot be achieved. Now unreality fades away.

All power and all reality is within you—the dimension that can never be conquered unless you agree to be conquered.

Use honesty, never attack

We attack because we believe it works and because we feel justified. We use words or actions meant to be harsh or hurtful to teach a lesson or change someone’s behavior.

Does attack ever work? In the short term, it can sometimes appear to. You may get the desired behavior from a friend, loved one, or subordinate. A child may comply. But, beneath the surface, you have only taught that you are violent. You have created fear and, because you are now feared, have ended trust and closeness in the relationship. You will lose influence over the situation because the real lesson will not be understood and, going forward, you will be avoided.

If you feel the need to try to correct someone, why not calmly, lovingly, honestly discuss your concern? Help a child understand their errors and likely consequences. Share your feelings with a friend or loved one. Help a subordinate understand the expectations of the relationship. If you are right about something, the loving and honest approach is the way to actually correct error.

Correction isn’t about causing someone to be afraid of you or the painful consequences you will impose. True change is only possible through a mutual understanding of reality. Speak truthfully to help others see the truth of the situation. Listen openly and with acceptance of others. In doing so, you both dissolve problems without conflict and teach that the loving response is always the correct response to any challenge.

The truth of any situation is found only in love and honesty. Attack wields literally no lasting power. Attack does not fix the problem; it is the problem. The loving response is always the correct response, and I assure you that, aligned with love, relationships are extremely easy.

Thus it is said: (Tao Te Ching)

The path into the light seems dark,
the path forward seems to go back,
the direct path seems long,
true power seems weak,
true purity seems tarnished,
true steadfastness seems changeable,
true clarity seems obscure,
the greatest art seems unsophisticated,
the greatest love seems indifferent,
the greatest wisdom seems childish.

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.

Everything that has been causing you misery has been constructed with lies

We live in a web of lies. There are the lies others tell us and we believe. There are also the lies we tell ourselves. Then there are the lies we tell others which seem to offer a solution to a problem or a way to get what we want. All lies end in crisis.

What is crisis other than the light of truth exposing an illusion? If there were no illusions to begin with, what crisis could there be? You would live in truth—in reality. What is real cannot change or be threatened. Align fully with what is real so that crisis, misery, and suffering become impossible. 

To live in peace is to live within the calm safety of truth. When there are no lies anywhere in your life, then you are free. But, to get there, you’ll have to start eliminating all untruth wherever it may exist in your life. You will need to be perfectly honest with yourself, perfectly honest about whether you believe any of the tired and insane lessons of the world, and perfectly honest in all your communication with everyone.

This shift toward perfect honesty, for a time, will bring about painful changes in your life. This is the undoing of ego, the shedding of all the lies that have kept you suffering. There is no way to awaken to consciousness, to enter the kingdom of heaven, to end your suffering if you do not start with perfect honesty.

Anything less than perfect honesty is belief in separation; the idea that there is still some value in keeping yourself apart from the perfect force of life, the ultimate reality, experienced as perfect love. Perfect honesty always.

Awakening is not belief in magic

The vast majority of religious people place their faith in spiritual texts and in rituals as though it is some strange magic. They believe that the physically impossible events described literally took place. That equally impossible worldly events are yet to come. Then, they claim, unless you believe in their version of magic, you are lost. These are the illusions of ego.

I believe that the Bible and other sacred texts were originally intended as a collection of stories meant to teach us something. The underlying message is to align with unconditional love. To be honest. To become fearless and recognize the truth about yourself as eternal consciousness or spirit. The words point to truth, but do not contain truth.

Why believe in magic when all of life is the miracle? Is the energy and thought system of love not one with life, itself? We are fully complete, as consciousness, existing eternally in this one present moment (though constantly shifting in form). If we look for anything other than or more than this miracle, we are chasing and believing in false, impermanent illusions.

I will wait for no events in the world for salvation. It is already so. I fear no medical tyranny because I do not comply. Their magic has no power over the eternal me. I am bored discussing the fictional insanity, the endless debate about illness (an illusion of ego), the legitimacy of the government or any centralized authority (there is none). I will not debate the endless conspiracy theories (the shape of the world is of no meaningful significance either way).

Truth is reality. Reality is eternal and already so (or it is not reality at all).

True spirituality is the total embrace of and alignment with perfect love, a wanting of only truth and honesty everywhere, and a loss of all fear through the knowledge that you, as consciousness, are eternal and beyond threat.

Herein lies the peace of God. Perfect, ongoing joy. Everything you most deeply want. Go within. You are complete now. Withdraw your faith from magic and embrace only what is real.

When you are honest with people, you don’t have to avoid them.

Too often, we are closed to people for the simple reason that we are afraid of getting ourselves into a situation we do not want to be in. We put up walls to avoid later having to admit how we feel or state our needs.

Even when we are open, we are too polite. We agree to things to please others. We try to impress by agreeing to things we don’t agree to. So we lose our freedom and suffocate. Then we burn bridges and retreat back into separation. Better to just state our needs openly.

When we learn to tell people how we feel and what we want, then we leave it to them to decide how to respond. The reaction may be negative. Fine, then the relationship dissolves because there is no fit. More likely, honesty will deepen bonds and bring true union...without sacrificing our freedom or getting us into situations we don’t want to be in.

Open completely to all, but only if you are prepared to be totally honest and accept the same in return. Now all our relationships become a spiritual practice.

Now I am free

I will create no more pain, no more suffering.
Now I know what the ego is and have learned to ignore its insanity by not following its stream of thought.
Now I know that attack—even mild forms such as reward and punishment—only causes more suffering and teaches only more violence.
Now I know that there is nothing and no one to be possessed in this world. I let go and let all things be.
Now I know that giving and receiving is the same act.
Now I rest in the silence and stillness between all the stuff, all the events, all the noise.
Now I know that the thought system of love contains all knowing. All that is not love is error to be corrected through love.
Now I know that all the universe exists in this present moment—right where it has always been. Time is merely a way to measure the movement of matter and a practical way for humans to function.
Now I know that a stressful and fearful mind is what causes illness and disease.
Now I know that the great Tao, God, or whatever you want to call it, exists within the imperceptible spaciousness within us and throughout the universe.
Now I cannot know what is good or bad. There is a natural balance to things, there is a curriculum, and I need only respond to all of life with love.
Now I have awakened to experience heaven—the spacious dimension of peace that exists beyond human drama.
Now I am free. I will create no more pain and suffering.

The lonely ones are those who see no function in the world for them to fill. (A Course in Miracles)

You have a function, which makes you complete in a world where incompletion rules. Yours is an individual life curriculum designed to nudge you toward the fulfillment of your unique function.

To awaken is to know your function—and to know that it can only be fulfilled once you abandon ego and align with the thought system of perfect love.

While love is oneness and so is truth, your function is unique because your way of expressing truth is unique. To escape ego is not to lose your personality; rather, to reach your potential by freeing you of the confines of a world designed to limit and control your divine beauty.

You are a unique expression of consciousness—God made flesh. To deny your divinity is to adopt the thought system of ego and to join the army of the lost and disconnected—those who demonstrate all the errors that can only lead to loneliness.

Love is the only escape from loneliness. Your purpose is to love, and to teach love to all, in the unique way that only you are capable of. Your strength can only be through love. The way can only be love—the energy of life, the good with no opposite.

How to defeat Communism in Cuba and everywhere it exists

Corrupt, oppressive governments—like the one in Cuba and also now in essentially every country in the world—have no authority over us other than our consent. We give consent because we fear them. If fear loses its power over us, oppression and slavery cannot occur. In other words, freedom is the absence of fear.

What most people do not understand is that there is only one way to totally abolish fear, and it is through perfect love. Perfect love forgives all error, embraces the full truth about everything (the good, the bad, and the ugly), and effortlessly provides the strength and wisdom to do and say what is right and good. This is freedom, and no outside authority is ever required for freedom to be granted instantly and totally.

If you love yourself fully, you cannot allow yourself to be abused or enslaved—just as you could never harm others. You will no longer tolerate manipulation and lies. So look within. Turn all the love you ever felt toward yourself. You are perfectly good, your intuition is always correct, your negative feelings are only a response to the world’s abuse—and that abuse is always fear-mongering in some form.

Love is the opposite of fear. If there is any fear in you, then perfect love cannot also exist. The choice is absolute. If there is any stress or fear about your life situation or about world events, you are not placing your faith in the true reality—which is the force of life, experienced as the energy of love, and is eternally real. When you know that this is who you are, and what you are, then the sick, lost souls trying to enslave you have zero power. To end fear is to defeat Communism, the fake media, and all forms of totalitarianism.
