I am ready for the truth

All of it. Hold nothing back. I will no longer tolerate the old-fashioned ways of communicating and living. The deceit, dishonesty, manipulation, calculation, control, attack, judgement, reward & punishment, and all forms of darkness. This, the withholding of honesty, is all so stupid. It is only our tolerance of dishonesty that has caused all the problems. This is the murky foundation of everything we hate about life. I am far past being done with it.

I withdraw all attention from those who withhold honesty. People, media, politicians, celebrities, the news, all of it. If you cling to the old-fashioned ways of stupidity, I can only shake my head and look the other way. The verdict is in, reality is now understood, the Great Awakening has occurred, and now life will go on very differently. This current era is to be lived in total honesty, truth, and openness. Each moment the truth is ascending and darkness is being vanquished.

All this time, darkness has remained only because we have failed to turn the light switch. There was a simple choice, and throughout history we have failed. We thought it normal and acceptable to navigate those dark rooms. Bumping into everything, still we were too afraid to turn on the switch. We became very bruised. So many people suffered and died. Yet we remained in the dark, bumping into everything and fumbling around like fools. Arguing about which version of fiction was right or better.

The meek shall now inherit the Earth. We accept only truth and this isn’t going to change. We are shining the light of reality everywhere, so get on board or learn the hard way. The confused fools of dishonesty have had their chance and have clearly made a mess of everything. Now everything is being cleaned up so that all truth and beauty can be revealed. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

You don’t need to be anything extra

The world convinces us that we are not good enough, and that we can only become good enough by learning more, achieving more, having more, looking better, and by being more right about everything.

This game of becoming more is pointless. The more we try to add to ourselves, the more ridiculous we look. None of it makes us any more attractive or lovable. To anyone familiar with truth and beauty, it does just the opposite. By trying to be something extra, you bury what you already are—which is already perfect.

Just be what you are. Let the enjoyable and beautiful external things remain part of your life, but never try to make that your identity. You are already you, and you’ve been you since you were born. Just do your thing, smile your smile, and laugh your laugh. Now you’re looking your best because your truth is shining through.

Think of the people who you most admire. Are these not the people who are most comfortable being who they are? We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

What can I do about it?

If you see the corruption, the robbery, the fearmongering, the horrific violence and deception that has been thrust upon the global population for as long as we have all been alive—the question that comes to everyone’s mind is “what can I do about it?”

As a lone individual or even small community, fighting back against the ruthless group of unimaginably rich and powerful people does not work. They control the media, the courts, politicians and more. Violence does not work. Protest does not work. Exposing the ugly truth does not work. Why? Because the entire system has been rigged against us. When we play their game, the house will always win. The system that they have designed has been capable of squashing any threat.

I believe that the white hats—through the NSA, other parts of the U.S. military and their many alliances—have been ripping apart this sick system of control piece by piece over the past few years. Many of us, who are following the real world events, believe we are moments away from a Biblical shift in power. Justice will finally be served. A fair new Quantum Financial System (QFS) is being put in place. Truth and freedom will prevail. Yet we also understand the enormity of what is going on behind the scenes. Despite some very real frustration, we wait patiently as we watch the shocking developments.

But what can we do until we reach this destination? What if it never arrives? What can we do to be free now, to live in joy and safety, to thrive and experience our lives properly? Furthermore, what can we do to create change? What power do we have?

This is what I have been talking and writing about for these past 5+ years and how I have been living for the past 15. What I have been saying in countless forms is very much like what Simon Parkes said in yesterday’s talk, “You have to craft a form of living, now, that doesn’t rely on these people.”

You do have the power to withdraw attention from their media. You do have the power to take your mask off and not to receive the vaccines. You have the power to overcome your ego. To awaken to consciousness / God / Love. To always speak the truth.

You also have the power to start your own business and achieve financial independence. To create multiple steams of income. To diversify your wealth via cryptocurrency. To define your relationship models. To parent according to your values. To educate your children in truth. To enjoy all the beauty in the natural world. To take care of your health. To get in shape and feel good.

You have the power to decide which job to take, which laws to obey, which ideas to adopt, and what to do with your time each moment of each day. This is not a battle against anyone or anything; rather, it is a claiming of power—which is your free will. Nothing external has the power to conquer, enslave, or ruin you. This only happens when you give away your power—and you do this by making fear real.

If you can align with perfect love in all your thinking, seeing, and doing, what you will find is that all power is within. To fight back against false power is to be dragged into the error of violence and attack—where you are always vulnerable to counterattack. Instead, live in truth now. Awaken. Be an example for everyone around. This is the way. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How many opportunities for joy have you refused?

The word “joy” is unpopular. The ego prefers the word “happiness”, but there is a clear difference. Joy is ongoing, lasting, eternal. Happiness is temporary and, because it is ab experience of the confused ego, it is always followed by its opposite (depression).

The decision for joy is as simple as always choosing love over fear…as simple as letting go of anything that brings you away from that state of joy…as easy as accepting all of reality unconditionally, as it is.

How many people have called out for your love, and in how many different ways? How many wonderful books have you left unread? How many beautiful days have you not noticed because you were too busy chasing something? How many times have you agreed to something even when your heart is begging for something else? How many lies have taken your attention away from the simple truth of joy? How many opportunities at health and fitness have you not seized and how has this affected your vibe?

The world has been upside down for a long time. In our never-ending quest for happiness, we have sacrificed joy. We have agreed to life structures where joy is impossible. We have filled our minds with so many details that we overlook the big picture.

Joy is now because it is always. It can only be accessed in the present moment. This message is yet another opportunity. Let your heart lead the way. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected (A Course in Miracles)

The Kingdom is perfectly united and perfectly protected, and the ego will not prevail against it. Amen.
-A Course in Miracles

By “The Kingdom” is meant the state of heaven, salvation—and it is within. More than this, it is what we are. By extension, I am also referring to our society, our world.

The ego—the force of evil, darkness, deceit, corruption, oppression, exploitation, violence, and cruelty within some of us and all around us—cannot and will not prevail. This would be fundamentally impossible. If at times it feels like evil is winning, that there is a real threat against you, it is only at times when you forget what you are and become lost in fear.

Some damage can be done, some destruction can occur, but the ego cannot prevail over life when life itself is the truth and reality of love. This “reality of consciousness” permeates not just every living being, but all matter in the universe. Divine consciousness is primary. It is reality. Ego is a sickness, a denial of reality so unreal that it only exists in the hell of a sick mind.

To awaken is to recognize the unchangeable state of unity, the one consciousness, which is also called the Holy Spirit, which is God, which is Love. It is all one and is beyond threat because it exists in the realm of non-matter (in the empty space). It is there we are eternal and safe.

Nothing can attack or change empty space. Swing at it and you pass right through. Bodies can be attacked and murdered, minds can be fooled for a time, fearful and foolish people can be convinced to do terrible things. But if you choose to live in The Kingdom—which means you are no longer trapped in the mind, no longer see yourself as a body, or life story, or ego—then nothing other than what you are will prevail.

When more of us awaken to this message, the entire world will be freed from evil. All that exists will be held safely and lovingly in the arms of the true knowledge of Love. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Live not by lies (from Alexander Solzhenitsyn's 1974 Essay)

Quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn's 1974 Essay, "Live Not by Lies":

“Yes, at first it will not be fair. Someone will have to temporarily lose his job. For the young who seek to live by truth, this will at first severely complicate life, for their tests and quizzes, too, are stuffed with lies, and so choices will have to be made. But there is no loophole left for anyone who seeks to be honest: Not even for a day, not even in the safest technical occupations can he avoid even a single one of the listed choices—to be made in favor of either truth or lies, in favor of spiritual independence or spiritual servility. And as for him who lacks the courage to defend even his own soul: Let him not brag of his progressive views, boast of his status as an academician or a recognized artist, a distinguished citizen or general. Let him say to himself plainly: I am cattle, I am a coward, I seek only warmth and to eat my fill.”

How much damage have institutions caused us?

By “institution”, I am referring mainly to the State, the media, the school system, organized religion, healthcare, psychology, and big pharma. I am also referring to our employers and other organizations.

The church calls us sinners and we believe it. Psychologists diagnose us with mental disorders and we believe them. Employers undermine our identity by requiring us to fake all day and we lose ourselves. The healthcare system pushes harmful drugs that make us sick. School teaches us to sacrifice joy for a future reward that never quite comes. Even the institution of marriage (State interference in our love lives) damages us by taking away our freedom to do, say, and think what we feel just because we want to love someone.

Despite all this open manipulation and abuse, most people blame themselves for their problems. They may see themselves as victims of the abuse, but how does that make you special? Everyone is a victim of institutional abuse. The question is how to overcome it.

Healing is impossible if you fail to see that no institution has legitimate authority over you. Institutions are dishonest and self-serving—seeking only to strengthen themselves. They gain power by robbing you of your freedom, energy, and by stealing your attention away from the beauty surrounding you. I have found that it is possible to function very well in the world even though I have zero trust or faith in institutions. That is part of what it means to awaken.

Deep down, even after a lifetime of abuse and manipulation—all the threats, punishments, negative labels, and toxicity hurled at you by corrupt institutions—you must know that you are good. If you have ever been responsible for harming anyone, then go make it right. After you have done so, you can rest peacefully in the knowledge that you are perfect, beautiful, and complete. Anyone who knows you can be grateful. Anyone who attacks, judges, or insults you is incorrect. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

How can I experience a spiritual awakening within the context of a normal and stressful life?

Many people avoid spirituality because they believe it would require them to change everything or give everything up. We have our jobs, relationships and marriages, and our children. Then there are bills to pay, the daily routines and chores to be done.

Is spiritual awakening even possible while living in “the real world”? Do you have to leave all your responsibilities behind, go to a mountaintop, and become a monk? Thankfully, no.

Spiritual awakening is different from a vacation. It is a way of perceiving, a thought system of love over fear, a decision to completely overcome everything ego is and does. What was most surprising to me, when I chose this path, is that everything in my “real life” went far more smoothly. I was a better life partner, a better parent, and a better business owner because I learned to approach the “real world stuff” without fear or resistance—with a sense of calm and acceptance.

When you leave the stress and panic behind, you make better decisions and treat people right. Also, from the state of present moment awareness, cleaning or doing the dishes is just something that can be enjoyed. I won’t go so far as to say that I enjoy dealing with money or paying bills, but now I can do it without any emotional reactions.

I give myself permission to enjoy whatever I enjoy, but most of my time is spent fulfilling my obligations in life. I have never been to any sort of spiritual retreat and do not require any external conditions to stay connected to the source.

Any awakening that requires an escape from real-world responsibilities is no lasting salvation at all; rather, only temporary escapism. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Is spiritual awakening real?

When I use the word “ego” or “spiritual awakening”, most people tune out—perhaps holding the opinion that ego is only natural and that spiritual awakening is just something egos talk about to make themselves seem superior.

I am sure that there are people who do fake enlightenment, who adopt it as an ego-identity to fit in or collect followers. I don’t fit with those people either because I’m too honest. If my goal was to be popular, clearly everything I am doing is wrong. Fortunately, I have no interest in popularity.

20210421_125124

5 or 6 years ago, I experienced spiritual awakening and have remained in this state. There is nothing special about me; rather, I merely studied the concepts and applied what felt true. My life then transformed to an extent that I felt an absolute calling to share what I have found.

At first, I felt that there was no need for me to do any of this because enough people probably know this stuff. As time went by, I realized that the knowledge I had acquired—through my understanding of the concepts and through radical application in my life—is perhaps unique enough that it needed to be shared.

The other reason I write most days and give talks is that it helps renew my spiritual faith. If you don’t touch this stuff daily, you slip back into ego. This, my 723rd almost daily spiritual post, is as much for me as for any audience who stumbles upon it. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
