How can we forgive the fraud, the lies, the oppression, and everything that has been done to us?

We are awakening to a new understanding of the world. For longer than we have been alive, our world has been ruled by dark forces. What we have been shown and taught is not real. Now their control over our lives is slipping, and all the chaos of 2020 is their last attempt to hold on as the forces of light take over.

We are fighting for our lives, placing our faith in truth-seeking and truth-telling. We see what is happening. We understand the depths of the wrongdoing. Many are calling for revenge. But how do I see this as a spiritually awakened person?

I do not believe in attack in any form, including punishment, because it teaches nothing. I believe in total forgiveness. I believe that the idea of sin is an unreal perception of error. Yes, many have committed tragic errors. They are already paying the price, yet they continue because they see no way out. They believe that, if they were to confess and atone, that they would only be severely punished—perhaps for the remainder of their lives.

Like everyone, I have suffered under the crimes of these people. Their ignorance has caused unnecessary fear, confusion, and impoverishment in all forms. They have corrupted every aspect of society. But deep down, I do not want punishment. I just want it to stop! That is what all of us are fighting for.

Please. Just stop. Be honest. Be fair. Let us be free. Let us live our lives. That is all we want.

Now this is coming to a head. If our response is only to punish, then the Great Awakening—or the Consciousness Revolution—will not have occurred. Instead, we will continue to believe in us against them and that attack teaches lessons or means something. Yes, we will have won this battle. But, in the end, if we do not forgive then we will be no different from them. Healing is impossible without forgiveness. Without true forgiveness, the sick thought system of ego will continue to prevail over the world as it has for thousands of years—only it will be our side teaching it. Let us, instead, teach the true thought system.

This is not about us against them. It is about using truth to reveal corruption and love to dispel fear. I do not want to lock anybody up. I want healing. When the forces of light prevail, I pray we create space to look at the whole truth. We can encourage everyone to tell the whole truth about what we have done and why. This is how we destroy ego.

Strip them from their positions of false authority, yes. Then make them humble by making them confess the whole truth about what they have done, why, and why they know it is wrong. We are not victims, we are healers. We will cast out the ego. We will bring them to their knees and then correct all error. This is love, which contains all power and is the only real revolution.

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.

How to run your own email server

As anyone selling B2B knows, finding new sales opportunities can be a daunting challenge. You know exactly which prospects you need to talk with; but getting a meeting can be frustratingly difficult.

Cold calling is dead. LinkedIn connect requests are ignored. Advertising is imprecise and expensive. Trade shows are no longer possible. If you need to pitch your products and services to the right decision makers, the best remaining channel of communication is email—but only if you know how to execute!

To start with, you will get zero results unless your message is outstanding. Even then, it is a numbers game. Just as soon as you ramp up a higher-volume email outreach program and start getting results, then hosting providers such as Gmail, Microsoft 365, GoDaddy and others will shut down your account for sending too high of a volume.

To solve this, you may then look to transactional or marketing email providers such as Sendgrid, Sendinblue, or Amazon SES—only to find that the setup process is very complex, delivery is poor, and they will cut you off anyway (even when the volume is very reasonable).

If you are a sales rep employed by a large organization, you are then forced to deal with complex processes and so much indecision that you get nowhere. If you are a startup, you risk your domain getting blacklisted and finding that all your emails are going to the junk / spam folder. But you need new customers. What can you do?

I run a sales agency that arranges meetings for companies selling enterprise technology solutions or services. What makes us different is that, for each project, we set up our own email servers—which very few people know how to do.

We will buy a domain that is similar to yours. The new domain is redirected to your main domain. We then send the optimal volume of outbound email, as an extension of your team, from our SMTP server. The messages get through, meetings start to flow, and we are immune from getting shut down.

Before you work with anyone else, ask them how they are going to overcome these challenges. They won't have a clue. Do you have the knowledge or bandwidth to do all this by yourself, including building lists and executing on all the outreach and follow-up? Probably not. You have deals to close and a business to run.

Our pricing is low and risk-free. After running 100+ successful campaigns over 10 years, I’ve become not only a messaging guru but also something of a sales hacker. We have taken one client from zero to an exit of $100 million in 4 years by arranging 650 on-site, C-level meetings.

If you need help growing the sales pipeline, my team is in place to execute on an ongoing, successful Inside Sales On-demand program. Contact me at mark.manney@abscondo.com for more information.

The media has no authority

IMG_20201109_183620_231

Why does the media have so much influence over people?

Private companies, convincing us to hide behind masks, ruining our own culture and businesses because of a normal flu.

Corrupt oligarchs aligning with corrupt politicians, threatening us to obey non-laws that are really only today's news headlines.

Now claiming the power to decide elections. None of what they claim is true.

What is wrong with people that they fully agree with such an absurd situation? Why don't we just turn it off and stop letting such a liar and abuser sit right in our living rooms?

Nobody gets away with anything

Nobody has ever woken up one day and said, “I’m sure glad I stole all that money, helped rig an election, or killed those people.” After committing the error of lying, cheating, or murdering, it would be impossible to look anyone in the eye and say that it was worth it. Not a chance.

Innocent people often envy the lifestyles of the rich and famous. We imagine how happy we would be if we were in their position. But we don’t understand the horrible deeds often required to get to that place. We imagine it in such a way that, in the end, the money is that good. We believe we will be happy.

This is the path toward corruption—the decision to put aside right and wrong for some supposed treasure or reason that is worth it. Unfortunately, committing the crime brings its own immediate and lasting punishment. Even before you are caught, you face unimaginable stress, fear, misery, and isolation. This is hell, and the treasures you sought will not be fully enjoyed and will not save you.

Become corrupt and there is no going back. Now you must fight harder to hold onto everything, to get away with it all—to the extent that you are forced to commit even worse crimes to buy yourself a bit more time. Still nothing helps. The happiness you sought always feels just around the corner. Tragically, the ending to this story is always the same: the truth is revealed.

Even the best strategies and skills are of no use unless deployed on the side of love—which is one with truth. Truth and lies cannot be equal, just as reality and delusion are not. On one side is everything, the other nothing.

The errors of the world we see now are so profoundly tragic, impossible to accept or understand, but they were all committed by people who simply did not know. These are the ways of ego, and the purpose is always to teach us that there is no other way toward anything we want except for love. Love is always truthful, honest, fearless, open, giving, creative, and accepting.

The only treasure is love and it is yours when you lose faith in other treasures. Resist this lesson, attempt to find other paths to happiness, and continue to cause suffering. The only reason for all the suffering is simple: so that we each may learn the lesson. When we learn, the suffering stops. Why resist?

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.

Nothing can stop what is coming

"This is the journey's end. We have referred to it as the real world. And yet there is a contradiction here, in that the words imply a limited reality, a partial truth, a segment of the universe made true." -A Course in Miracles

What we thought was "the real world"--a compromise, a normal way of life that is dishonest and unnatural and filled with sacrifice--is coming to the end.

Now, the ugly truths about the false reality will be exposed and merged into the full reality. Full reality is total and all-encompassing because it includes everything and, therefore, is one.

While much of what we are about to learn is shocking, it is important that we look honestly upon it and do so without judgment.

The final judgment is "the judgment of the truth upon illusion."

Further judgment is unhelpful because it leads to punishment and attack. Justice is nothing other than the truth being revealed and error corrected. The error has always been secrecy and dishonesty (darkness). Without secrecy, corruption is impossible.

The war between separate illusions, otherwise known as confusion, will stop when exposed to truth. The battle is complete, the struggle ends, suffering and crisis end the moment that everything which has been kept hidden, kept separate, is revealed.

Truth is honesty, honesty truth. All the evil and corruption end when we choose to be honest. Nothing can stop what is coming.

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.
