My love letter to the stranger on the street who asked me for money

Yes, I could have given you a little bit of money, but I promise you that this letter is far more valuable. The path you are on is not your way. If you can humble yourself to this message, which you were destined to receive, your problems will be gone.

Lack of money is not your real problem. Lack of love is. What you may have never realized is that love is not something that you get from another person. Love is found inside you. It is felt inside when you forgive yourself and remember that you are not guilty of anything.

Deep down, I know that no matter what you’ve done in the past, right now you are good. On the level of the soul—within that mysterious realm of life itself—we are all perfect and innocent.

At this point you may be asking what this has to do with your need for money. To this, I will ask a few questions. Is there anyone in your life who you cut off for any reason? Have you unconditionally accepted all the people you have known? What would happen in your life if, right now, you went back to each of them with love in your heart and made it right?

What does it mean to make relationships right? It means forgiving, accepting, and offering your best to them. You haven’t offered your best because you have been drowning in fear and guilt. Panicking and not knowing your value, you have been desperately taking rather than giving. Receiving is impossible without giving.

But what is the source of real wealth and abundance? You are its source. Nothing is more valuable than your ability to create, to serve, to do something valuable for other people. The more you do this, the more money they give you in return. To give is to receive. It is a cycle of abundance which you have broken by an unwillingness to give.

What if, rather than asking strangers for money, you asked them only if there is anything you can do for them. Explain that you are having a hard time right now, but don’t want to beg. You want to earn it. How long do you think you would remain poor if you did only this and meant it?

Your life journey is no different from mine. This hellish world has been cruel to us and unfair. We have failed, suffered, and faced crisis. Was this to teach us that we are victims? No. Your suffering was only to teach you this lesson. If you had not reached this low, you would not have received this message of truth and healing.

I’ve made all the mistakes that you have. But I eventually learned that life is a simple choice we didn’t know we had. You can either choose a life of fear or love. If one is real for you, the other cannot simultaneously exist. Is the past and future real, or is this moment real? Are you not perfectly good and lovable in this moment? Choose this truth, fearlessly live your love, and if you keep going in this direction you will have no problems.

You, my friend, will fix everything when you find the love inside you. Love is all that is real, and it is eternal. Learn what perfect love is, let everything else go, and learn to extend this love. There are many spiritual teachings that reinforce this message. Seek them out. Study and practice them daily. This is your awakening, a sacrifice of only what you do not want.

With unconditional love,

You can exchange guilt for innocence

Doesn’t everyone want to be free of pain? If so, why do we make choices that hurt us? We avoid being close to others. We make ourselves sick through poor diet and other bad habits. We beat up on ourselves and others. Why?

This is not a rhetorical question. There is a clear answer: guilt. We suffer when we believe we are guilty and have not learned to exchange guilt for innocence.

When people believe in their own guilt, you can see it in their eyes. They feel unworthy of love, freedom, health, and abundance. Believing that they have nothing good to offer, they withdraw and attack others to break relationships and create more separation.

Those who believe they are guilty also behave in ways that cause themselves to be attacked. Most people believe that attack can teach a lesson and can correct behavior. Imagine how misguided it is to attack the guilty, when teaching the exchange of guilt for innocence is what heals.

I know that every brother and sister is inherently good. Our love, our goodness, our light is the only thing real about any of us. As the force of life, itself, we are not only equal we are one. It is only our belief in guilt that drives all the thoughts, perceptions, and behaviors that ultimately cause pain and cloud our goodness.

The truth about you, about everyone, is the truth of perfect innocence. Forgive all guilt by simply recognizing it is as unreal. It is not what we are and nothing we need to carry. Whatever errors have been made, we can effortlessly correct them in the embrace of our innocent, good selves. Whatever we’ve done, whatever we want, whatever we need, we can correct it and obtain it by applying the thought system of unconditional love, total honesty, and freedom. This is the exchange of guilt for innocence, the end of pain, the beginning of ongoing joy.

When you are honest, everything about your life is real

To hide anything—however seemingly small or inconsequential it may seem—is to lay one more brick upon that castle in the sand. One lie demands others, and those others still, until we are trapped in a web of confusion with no way out other than crisis. The only way to avoid this sad reality is to always be honest.

The choice for perfect honesty starts by being honest with yourself. What do you really need? What excites you and inspires you? Who are you and what do you want to become? What do you want to experience? If you can be honest with yourself about everything, without consideration of what others may think, then you have awakened within to honesty. Most people never get this far.

Even being honest with yourself is not enough. If you repress or hide your honesty, you suffer from low energy and depression. Under the constant labor to create the image of a life that isn’t true, life becomes a job. Furthermore, to the extent that you withhold honesty, you are limited by others, controlled, repressed, and unfree.

It is very normal in this world to avoid all that is true and real because of fear. In a world of lies, the honest person feels like a total misfit. To fit in, we create a pretend version of reality while hiding what is real about ourselves. How many of us are there hiding, believing we are misfits? Probably the majority.

If we could learn to accept the truth about ourselves and one another, and if we could see that the judgments of others mean nothing, we could break the barriers of fear. We would step our from our isolation, come together, and live blissfully.

Our tendency to trust authority is the crux of the problem

There is no “our side” which is good and another which is bad. It isn’t about my beliefs, my country, or my political party vs. yours because this way of thinking has gotten us into such a horrible mess.

As soon as we come to believe that “our side” is good, we put our faith in the inherently false identity of the group, movement, or institution while our real identity is elsewhere. When trust is misplaced, central authority invariably abuses our faith and harms everyone for their perceived benefit.

763

When one movement becomes so abusive that we can no longer deny it, we flock to another. In time, that movement also becomes abusive, so we move to yet another. As time goes on, the cycle of abuse and corruption only worsens.

I do not believe in any ideology, science, religion, source of information, politician, country, movement, or institution. Everything in this world is a mess of confusion which only seems to take on the meaning that we give it.

Yet still, apart from all the sickness and confusion, there is a way of seeing that heals everything. When we go beyond mere faith to total alignment with perfect love, honesty, and freedom, we instantly transcend all the problems of the world. If something is loving, honest, and supports freedom, then it is right and good. If not, I will not give it any attention and will not comply. No exceptions.

In a world that is thusly healed, all power is withdrawn from external authority and is shifted within. Each person alive is a divine expression of the force of life, itself, and no external force of darkness will ever diminish our power—our identity as love, truth, and freedom.

The present is before time was… (A Course in Miracles)

“The present is before time was, and will be when time is no more.
In it are all things that are eternal, and they are one.”
-A Course in Miracles

The normal state of existence in this world is to overlook all that is eternal and here right now to focus on either the past (which is gone) or the future (which is unpredictable, temporary, and fleeting at best). This helps explains the world’s uninterrupted state of confusion.

Only that which is in the present is real. The past and future are not here and, therefore, do not literally exist. Time can seem real only when we bring memories, hopes, and fears to the present. This is the unobserved mind’s unfortunate habit of problem-making.

None of the stuff of this world—the external threats, attacks, manufactured fears, lies, promises, rewards, punishments—none of it is actually here in your present moment unless you choose to bring it into the present moment; thus giving it power, making it seem real, and choosing to live out of accord with the eternal reality.

The stuff of the mind can be interesting, but pay attention to your emotions, thought patterns, and decisions. If you are negatively influenced by the stuff of the mind, you are losing presence and attempting to replace reality with illusion.  

We are at our best when we are present; focusing all our attention on what is here, what is real, what is eternal. By letting thoughts of past and future drift away, we can fully love, create value and beauty, and we can relax and enjoy ourselves in safety and freedom. The mind still has thoughts, but those thoughts no longer control your emotions or behavior. You are able to distinguish present-moment reality from time-based fiction.

It is the ego need for a strong identity that is leading many to insanity

Deeply craving recognition and specialness, we make an identity out of our mental positions and affiliations.

You may be liberal because you believe in compassion and social justice, but then you go along with politicians who cheat and violate human rights.  You can become so identified with a particular profession that you do terrible things. Maybe you see yourself as someone who attends social events, bars, clubs, restaurants—so you are willing to be injected with unknown, lethal substances to continue to do so. You may identify as a good, law-abiding citizen who trusts and obeys authority, who watches the news, while failing to see all the unconstitutional rules and endless stream of harmful lies.

When these external sources of identity are corrupted, people become insane. All that is required is to get politicians to scare us and take away freedom. Get businesses to discriminate. Introduce propaganda into sports. Corrupt the healthcare system to cause sickness and death. Limit free expression on social media. Steal an election from patriots. My point is this: if you are still holding onto an external identity of any kind, this stuff will drive you into deep confusion and total loss of common sense.

The restoration of sanity is the disidentification with all external form so that your identity literally becomes perfect love, truth, and freedom.

Now it is not your identity that will ever be your source of specialness or uniqueness (which has never worked anyway). Now your true grandeur will be all that you learn, experience, and create as your best, perfectly sane, healthy self—a unique genetic mutation on a unique journey. You already were special, but perhaps the best version of you has been obscured by a false sense of identity.

It's all theater

9c21dea83a946da5

Fake election. Fake President. Fake news. Fake pandemic. Fake laws. Fake money. Fake medicine. Fake history. Fake education. Fake religion. Fake authority. Fake friendships. Fake celebrities. Fake status. Fake love. Fake truth. We see it. We know it.

The Great Awakening is the mass recognition of the illusions, lies, deceit everywhere it exists—and the simultaneous full embrace of truth. We are witnessing the death of ego and the dawn of a new world where dishonesty is inconceivable, freedom is complete, and perfect love is our only thought system.

Our oppressors have lost control. We have awakened to the divine reality—which is and always has been love, freedom, honesty, beauty, perfect health, inspiration, compassion, fairness, acceptance, consciousness, God (all words pointing to the one reality that has been obscured by fakeness and unrecognized in confusion).

The moment you know this message to be true is the moment that all the fakeness fades away for you and your real life begins. Many of us have been living in this state already for a long time. I never thought I would live to see this death of ego, end times, this awakening to reality, this mass recognition that there is no reason to continue playing the fake game, which is almost over.

I do not hate the people who are abusing us. I know that they are sick, unwell, and need healing.

The ones orchestrating this massive fraud on the world are so sick and confused that they believe people like you and me are no better than animals to be used, exploited, and thrown away without any consideration. They believe that enslaving us is what will make them happy.

Everything about their confused thought system is impossible. Human beings are not a crop to be exploited; rather, we are sacred, divine beings in perfect alignment with love, beauty, truth, and freedom. How frustrating it must be for them when the look at all the awakened, sane, loving, creative, beautiful people and realize that their entire belief system is incorrect.

And how miserable they must be in their isolated luxury. So unfree and controlled by it. It must feel so burdensome just to keep this all going. They need so many distractions and sources of stimulation just to bear the weight of it all. Nothing about their lives is real. What a truly sad state of existence it must be.

Then consider the countless sad, confused people following their orders—believing that something could be gained through blind obedience to the world’s insanity. Their belief in the whole corrupted system of exploitation is so unquestioned that—just to stay in school, to maintain a lousy job, to hold onto a bit of fame, to maintain status or even hope—they choose not to think freely, not to express their originality, not to do as they please, not to learn about everything, not to try new things. How tragic and sad.

The truth is, everything that the unwell are holding onto is what must be let go of for their happiness to become possible. The truly happy, joyful, blessed are the ones who know that freedom is what we are, truth is as essential as the air we breathe, and that everything we want is found only in love.

So, no, I do not hate those who self-identify as and act as my enemy. Since they have no power over me, they are not my enemy at all. I see that they are sick and confused. They are lost. I do not want revenge or even punishment. What I do want is healing. A recognition of reality. A letting go of these thought systems of sickness and all that it has made.

Right now, you are not guilty of anything at all

The world teaches us that guilt is real and that we are all guilty. Yes, in the past, we all have made mistakes. But is the past here right now? Here, right now, in this moment, are we not perfectly innocent?

To believe that guilt is real, one would have to believe that each moment of your life you are supposed to carry the full burden of your past. You are meant to do the hard work of constantly being ashamed of yourself for what is not here. Ignoring present reality, you are meant to pay a price for memories. For this, you punish yourself and allow yourself to be punished. In truth, your guilt is only a story—a collection of thoughts, no longer true right now, that you choose to make real.

But if you can be still. If for one instant, you can let go of the past. If you look around you, noticing the colors, the textures, the sounds, the silence, and stillness behind it all. Can you clearly recognize that you are not guilty in this moment? That you are perfectly lovable? Right now, you are perfectly innocent and perfectly lovable. This is forgiveness. This is also reality.

In an instant you can heal from guilt. Then, you can love yourself. You can even extend that love at every opportunity. You can allow yourself to feel good. You can smile. You can let that burden of your past drift away. You can fix anything in your situation that needs fixing—not from a position of guilt and shame; rather, from the certainty of your perfect innocence.

If there is ever any insane behavior in the present moment, you can correct it. But to hold guilt over yourself or anyone is to condemn to death by creating an insanity in the mind that overshadows the beauty and perfection of the present moment. You cannot awaken, you cannot heal, you cannot love if you decide that guilt is real. I assure you it is not. You are perfectly innocent.

Right now  you are not guilty of anything at all.

Is it loving, is it true, is it freeing?

If you can answer “yes” to all three of these questions, you have the correct solution to every challenge and the correct answer to every question.

This is not my opinion, not something I made up; rather, a divine law that is universally applicable in every situation. When I pray, my only prayer is this:

May I align with love, truth, and freedom every moment of my life.

Relationship challenges? Apply this solution and it will be overcome. Confused about politics or world events? Apply this standard to any story or statement and you will instantly know. Quite simply, this is the standard that defines right and wrong.

When I say wrong, I really mean sin. When I say sin, I only mean error. The correction to any error is to act or decide in a way that you can answer these questions with a “yes”.

The answer to all three must be “yes” because there is no love if there is dishonesty. Truth cannot dishonor the free will of another. Freedom is never unloving or based upon deceit, or it is not freedom. Truth will never surface if you are not choosing freedom for yourself and others. There is no exception to this 3-dimensional divine law.

You cannot love, you cannot seek or tell truth, and you cannot tolerate openness and freedom if you are in a state of fear. The decision to make fear real is to decide against this. But if you pray to align with this universally applicable truth, you will instantly unchain yourself from fear. After a short period of adjustment in your life, everything will be wonderful because you will be fully aligned with love, truth, and freedom.

This is a very easy standard, a clear compass that will lead you to joy, peace, healing, salvation. To you, it is self-evident and as simple as breathing. However, to your ego mind, it is impossible. Ego is the fear that prevents you from applying this—the voice that tells you there is something more important than this in your life. In fact, beliefs which prevent you from applying this is the cause of all confusion and suffering.

This is the mandatory lesson being taught now by an insane world. The suffering only stops for you when you learn the lesson and apply it.
