To heal is to dispel illusion

Wars between ideologies, attempts to prove superiority or holiness, the constant game of who’s right and who’s better, who’s guilty and who’s innocent, who’s the victim and who’s the oppressor—none of this means anything because it is only a war between separate illusions.

Right now, the insanity is self-evident as we look not just as those who would allow the idea of a flu to paralyze them with fear, but also those who have become obsessed with the 5G conspiracy. Others are going mad interpreting end-times literally by looking at the illusion of today’s government through the illusion of ancient religious texts.

Truth is not the stuff of thoughts, worries, mind-structures, arguments, or ideologies. This is the stuff of the world, the stuff of form. To seek truth and salvation here is a foolish attempt to build a castle upon a foundation of shifting sand.

Ultimate truth—reality—is found in the formless dimension. Here, we remember that love is beyond debate—always superior to the littleness of ego and always the solution to any problem.

As you awaken, do not disengage from the world. Wanting only truth requires that we tell the truth about things happening in the world and point out obvious errors. But do not teach that the errors matter much because no illusion can threaten reality. The purpose of looking at error is only to heal by dispelling illusion.

As illusion is banished from our awareness, we effortlessly embrace perfect love with our whole hearts. We embrace freedom as our natural state granted to us by our creator. We forgive everything and everyone as easily as breathing.

All which is not love is sin, and nothing real can be absent of love. Forget the terrifying dreams of form because they will lead to more confusion, insanity, fear, and suffering. Truth—which is awakening, which is healing, which is the force of life itself, which is salvation—is a choice which is always available to you each moment. Forgive yourself as you let go of the world’s illusions.

For they were in bondage and he has delivered them. (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 27:16)

I recently met three truly kind-hearted, lovely young Mormon missionaries in my town. Prior to our meeting, I mentioned that I had already found salvation through a different path. The purpose of our meeting was that we might all strengthen our faith and not try to save anyone who has already been saved.

We met by the post office, then walked aimlessly for a while with our masks on (required by law in Slovakia). Eventually, we found our way to a park, sat down, removed our masks to reveal our smiles and enjoyed a wonderful conversation. We offered one another space to talk openly about our faith, our beliefs, and the meaning of life. By doing so, we became friends and I plan to meet them again very soon.

In these past months, I have also become close to other Christians (long lost friends from my hometown). What has surprised me is the level of openness and acceptance I have received, and of course have also given, though we came to spirituality by way of very different concepts and words.

When a true Christian speaks of Christ, they mean the same thing as when I use the word unconditional love. When I speak of ego, I mean the same thing as when they speak of the devil. When we decide to break free from specific words and concepts—when we are able to embrace one another in love and then attempt to use language and concepts to glimpse into the divine truth that transcends it—then it is entirely possible for all the awakened among us to connect in perfect union even if our paths and concepts differ.

Nothing could be more relevant to these times than the Mormon quote I shared. We have been put into bondage by centralized authority, only he can save us. By “he” is either meant God or a man who walks with God (I ask my Mormon friends to clarify), or it could mean the Holy Ghost, spirit, consciousness, the Tao, perfect love, our divine essence, and so many other words which all point to the inner dimension of divine truth.

It is only within this dimension that we may transcend bondage, only through spiritually awakening that we can break free from the chains—and when this freedom (the only true freedom) is shared with our brothers and sisters, only then are we saved and life can become heaven on earth.

In this dramatic era where ego is dying, those who wish to thrive in peace and abundance must learn to embrace all our brothers and sisters—those with faith and those still on their journey toward it—for healing to occur. See past the language and connect on the level of love. Unconditional love, God’s love, is the absolute truth. Allow others to align with it by using any spiritual teachings that resonate with them. To communicate on this level across faiths is far more powerful than limiting yourself to one particular Church or teaching, and a necessary step forward if the world is going to heal.

Can we now begin to love ourselves, our children, our grandchildren and future generations enough to change?

If human behavior were to have continued unchecked, that path would have resulted only in our own destruction. While we have known this for a long time, we also recognized our powerlessness to do anything about it. Our individual behavior is just a part of the whole; and what real choice did we have but to conform to the systems upon which we depended?

Yet, in such a short while, the whole world now recognizes what fundamental change looks like and feels like. We know that everything can change. Now the future feels wide open.

Now can we cut consumption of fossil fuels? Can we stop cutting down the oxygen-producing rain forests and polluting the waters and the skies? Let’s maybe stop military-backed invasion and police brutality? Can we be honest about how the thought system of our courts and prisons harms us? Must hard-working people really be poor, and can we shed racism?

Can we allow people the freedom to decide for themselves whether they would prefer to work and learn more independently at home? Might we look at the disastrous impact that most prescription medications are having on our health? What about the link between out of control sugar consumption and disease? The impact of fear and stress?

Can we see that lasting happiness was always impossible under that old system? That unconscious marriages and relationships have taken away our freedom and caused misery? That it isn’t scary to say what we mean, express how we feel, and want only truth?

Can we learn to enjoy more uplifting and beautiful forms of entertainment? Maybe stop arguing over silly concepts which mean nothing in relation to the vastness of the universe? To create space for one another and accept one another as we are?

The reason for suffering is that we have erred. Suffering is nature telling us to correct course. The one correction to all error is to escape the ego and to awaken.

A collective awakening is known as a consciousness revolution—which is the only true and lasting revolution because it is rooted in the divine wisdom of love. Aligned with love, perfect change happens as easily as your next breath. All can be solved with just this one adjustment to the inner state of being. You have divine power.

Learn to love with conviction and the suffering, destruction, oppression and misery of the world become impossible. Your life and the entire world can now be instantly transformed.

Only by awakening can you know the true meaning of that word. A glimpse is enough to initiate the awakening process, which is irreversible. (Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth)

Awakening is not about any particular words or concepts. Language, beliefs and rituals are, at best, only signs that may sometimes be useful in pointing you in the right direction. The original intention behind any spiritual teaching or religion was not that you worship it; rather, that you awaken. When you do awaken, you are no longer attached to the concepts; rather, you use language to describe or point to the deeper knowing.

Anyone who has experienced true beauty and joy has already glimpsed into this dimension. What pulls us away from it? Ego. As Eckhart Tolle explains in A New Earth, “Unless you know the basic mechanics behind the workings of the ego, you won’t recognize it and it will trick you into identifying with it again and again. This means it takes you over—an imposter pretending to be you.”

It is ego, the imposter within us and which has controlled the world for too long, that has pulled us from the so-called Garden of Eden and into this hell. The time has come for human beings to understand ego so that we transcend it. Eckhart explains, “When you recognize the unconsciousness in you, that which makes the recognition possible is the arising consciousness, is awakening.”

“Not everyone is ready yet, but many are. And with each person who awakens, the momentum in the collective consciousness grows and it becomes easier for others.”

If you are ready to transform the suffering within you and of this world into an experience of ongoing joy and peace, read A New Earth or listen to the audiobook now.

The new age is already here for those who choose not to wait.

They say that we are supposed to wait this out, that one day this pandemic will be over, and everything is going to be better than ever. But is anything real ever found by waiting for the future? I don’t think that one day we’re just going to wake up, having changed nothing about the way we think and live, and be okay. The truth is that salvation is not found in time.

Time is the dimension where life grows old and dies. Decay takes time, the slide toward death takes time—and that time is shortened further by refusing to love, live fully, heal, and expand. The longer we wait in fear rather than choosing to come alive now, the worse the suffering and the effects of illness will become. Exactly when will the fear subside, and when will the world be safe again according to the fearful ego?

The new age is already here for those who choose not to wait. Others are lost in the web of illusions, the dramatic swings, the fearful cries, the loss of external freedoms, the panic and uncertainty. But we the awakened, we have already healed in this eternal present moment. Our lives are already rooted in truth. We already love fully. We already enjoy this moment. We continue to give and receive. Our hearts are open to unity and service. We feel good and want to spread the joy. We remain perfectly healthy and absent of fear. We experience life as abundant.

Nothing truly valuable or important can be found in time. Wait for it there and you miss the treasure where it is—right here, right now. Let the world be as it is for now, it will follow. Remember that we are life, itself. We are the light of the world, not subjects to the world. For healing to occur, we must go first in truth. There is nothing to wait for when everything real always exists only in the now.

Hope and fear are two sides of the same coin

Either way, you end up suffering in the present moment, waiting for salvation in the future. 
 
Will the expected future event ever come? If it does, will it deliver what you expect? Has this worked in your life so far?
 
Love and present moment awareness deliver salvation in the only place it can be found: here and now. 
 
Accept, embrace, enjoy what is or do something now to change it.

Today we lose faith in fear

Let’s talk about the fear and panic caused by imagining something terrible happening in the future. These days, how can we stop these thoughts?

The future you imagine is not real. Reality is too complex and your mind can’t understand all the variables. Besides, when the so-called future does come, it will still be the present moment. In that “future present moment”, will you still be crippled by fear of the future? As it is, yes.

Always clinging to past and future, the one dimension that the ego is utterly unaware of is the present moment. Yet this is the dimension where everything that happens is happening, always has been, and always will be.

Watch the people of the world continue to tragically create unbearable suffering in the present moment as an attempt to protect us from some imagined future. Observe the depth of insanity around us now and learn this lesson well. This, my brothers and sisters, is a monumental occasion. Nothing interesting is happening in the world right now but the death of ego.

The ego literally must die because there is no path forward for those who choose to keep fear alive. They are now paralyzed and will not survive. If you want to live, you must learn to transcend fear by transcending ego. The ego is fear. You cannot escape fear from within the thought system of fear.

The time has come for God’s thought system—the thought system of perfect love. If you want to live, then awaken to truth. Awaken to the creative force of life, itself. Only love can save you from fear. Learn to love yourself and then extend it.

Now is the time to start a meditation practice. It's easy to get started.

Meditation is the most direct way to quiet the mind and to diminish fear. By learning not to chase every thought, and by experiencing those few moments each day of no thought, you allow your body's immune system to strengthen and you allow natural healing to occur. 

An over-active mind makes you feel stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed by fearful thoughts. As we get older and life gets more complicated, this becomes the root cause of our problems. This is a state of being where, even in the middle of the night, you frequently panic the body and divert energy away from its normal functioning. Beyond this, a tortured mind is what drives us into addictions and out-of-control behavior; which, of course, exhausts us further and makes us more susceptible to disease.

As this global crisis plays out, we see that people in some countries have a much higher death rate than in others. The Chinese people, for the most part, know what meditation is, understand the benefits, and know how and when to apply it. Italians and Spanish, for the most part, do not. Notice the huge variation in death rates.

Anyone who has established an ongoing meditation practice has already experienced less illness, release from addictions and mad behavior, and an enhanced ability to fight disease. Now would be a very good time for everyone to go down the path of meditation.

You may find a meditation that works better for you than what I'm about to recommend, but this one has served me very well for 5 or 6 years. I love the meditations put out by Mary Maddux at Meditation Oasis.  They are all free from her podcast link. Find some topics that resonate with you. I like the ones with music (particularly "Let it Be" and "Accessing Intuition").

Any mediation is better than no meditation, but the more you do, the better. I recommend choosing a guided meditation that lasts for at least 15 minutes. Choose a few different ones you like and do them at least once but ideally twice a day.

Don't worry if you're not sure whether you're getting it or if it is helping, just keep doing it. Meditation changes in your life in a very gradual and subtle way. If you stay with it for a few weeks or months, you'll begin to notice seemingly small changes. By creating gaps in your stream of thoughts, you allow consciousness and presence into your state of being.

I believe that meditation is the foundation of spiritual awakening, and it is also one of the easiest and most enjoyable things you'll ever do.
