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.

What is the real purpose of all the suffering around the world in 2020 and 2021?

The old world is dying, its’ systems exposed as sick, corrupt, and beyond repair. Through my countless hours of research, I am sure that there are powerful forces who have planned and coordinated a massive, Biblical shift into a much better world. But why is it taking so long?

This past year and a half have been a period of great humbling. There isn’t a group, culture, or subculture who has not been proven dead wrong about something, and they know it. Rather, there may be only one group left still completely unaware of the enormous changes coming: the still completely self-centered and uncurious who unquestioningly believe even the most absurd narratives put in front of them by the old authorities.

As events in the world appear more and more absurd each day, the hope is that more of the unawakened will finally be pushed to the point of humility and will begin to question, to talk about, to research, to prepare for what is coming. See, as anyone who has gone through any sort of awakening knows, this transformation is only possible from a state of humility—typically following a long period of suffering that ultimately ends in crisis. You must lose everything false to gain everything real.

To truly transform the world, to usher in the new financial system that will bring abundance, legitimate governments, human rights, personal freedoms, and real health—we need a population that is awakened. This cannot be just top-down; rather, the whole thought system of ego must lose its grip on the world.

Awakening works best when it is of your own free will. When you connect your own dots, and adopt your own views, then you are led by the positive force of your own intuition. This transformation cannot be forced or coerced, or it will feel unjustly imposed.

Unfortunately, at the end of this movie, there will still be a large group of very stubborn individuals who have still not awakened. When the truth is revealed, the rest of us will be there to help. However, what they must confront will be too painful for anyone who isn’t ready.

Have patience with this long process, remain 100% confident that good will prevail, stay aligned with perfect love, presence, truth, light, God. Nothing can stop what is coming.

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.

Time and eternity cannot both be real, because they contradict each other. (A Course in Miracles)

“If you will accept only what is timeless as real, you will begin to understand eternity and make it yours.”

To accept the eternal is to identify with, to align with, to care only about the timeless and changeless—to know that nothing impermanent is even real because it is always changing.
Our spirit, our God-essence, our energy, our love within is our true identity.
Transcending the body and the physical realm, this real, formless, nameless identity is also beyond threat and is eternal.  

You can spend your entire life searching for the lasting, the stable, the beautiful destination you crave within the physical realm—but you will never find it there.
Eternity is what you already are, and need only be recognized and remembered.

See the literal falseness of time—which is nothing more than a measurement system we use to look at the movement of matter in the eternal present.
Yes, nothing ever existed in the past and nothing will exist in the future. All of the universe has only ever existed in the present moment, which is all there is and ever will be.

To make eternity yours in this Holy Instant is to awaken from the dream.
This is one of many portals to Salvation.

To desire wholly is to create (A Course in Miracles)

If there is anything you want to create which has not yet manifested in your life, it is because you do not desire it wholly. You may believe you want all sorts of things: a happy relationship, children, to achieve a goal, to create a work of art or a successful business. In truth, if there is anything you want that is not present, it can only be for a few reasons:

1) You do not want it wholly

If you wholly want a happy, healthy, perfect relationship, then you will have one. Any such relationship begins with loving yourself. Figure this out, and your relationships with others can only be perfect. As for children, if you wholly wanted children, you would have children with one simple act of creation. The same goes with achieving a goal or creating anything at all. If you wholly wanted it, then this is where you would focus work and attention. It would be so.

2) You are wanting something external rather than creating

You may want world peace, or for a loved one to change, or for the world to finally recognize your brilliance. The problem here is that what you desire is not a creative desire. You are giving attention to what is outside your control, while you only have control over your creations.

Hoping, praying, and waiting for something external to happen in the world or in your life is misdirected desire. So much of what appears real and significant in this life is entirely beyond our control.

The good news is that your perfect love, joy, health, and everything you most deeply want is entirely within your control. The way to achieve it is through your God-given, God-like power to create.  There is nothing external required for you to thrive within the realm that is already fully yours.

If something is beyond your control, then you can easily accept it. If you wholly desire something within your creative control, then create it. If you do not wholly desire it, then be honest with yourself about it and find a sense of peace there.

You who withhold your unconditional love are literally denying heaven for yourself

You are not guilty, nor is anyone. We have errored at times; but error is never anything but acting without love.

The correction for lack of love is unconditional love. Only light undoes darkness and only love undoes sin. To love unconditionally is to forgive.

There is, therefore, no reason to ever withhold unconditional love. While the world would convince you otherwise, this love-starved world is clearly not heaven and does not understand the lesson.

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.

The truth can only be loving because only love is true

People are afraid of perfect honesty because we are afraid of getting hurt. This is shortsighted because, in the end, only perfect love can be the truth.

Honesty, however, is a process—an ongoing process, a thought system, a radically different way of life. Whenever two people begin to practice perfect honesty, at first it can hurt. But the only thing getting hurt is the ego.

The ego—with its faith in guilt, attack, specialness, superiority, and brutal selfishness—hurts like hell when it is exposed because looking at your own nastiness and ugliness is painful. When two people allow the ego to be fully exposed—when they accept it and look at it honestly—what they will ultimately see is something they do not want. Facing the truth is the undoing of ego.

All the things we are afraid to confront, the hidden thoughts and secrets we are slaves to—these are only unreal illusions. In the ultimate reality, everything the ego makes is nothing and, therefore, should not be valued or respected as something.

When two people keep going more deeply into honesty, what is ultimately revealed is perfect truth: which is and can only be unconditional love.

The path to salvation, awakening, enlightenment, unconditional love—whatever you want to call it—is and can only be the path of honesty. Honesty is the undoing of all the errors which block love.

In a constant struggle to make real what is not real, and true what is not true, you find only suffering

Non-resistance, or acceptance of what is, simply means allowing what is real to be what is true. This realness includes not only the external reality of what happens, not only the thoughts and feelings of others, but also the truth about our own thoughts and feelings. We can let it all be as it is and flow as it does.

While this approach to life would seem obviously superior to the alternative, to the ego it is impossible. The ego is the struggle against reality and the foolish attempt to make true what is not true. Despite the ego’s best intentions, attempting to make illusion real can only lead to ongoing suffering followed by eventual crisis.

Non-resistance is not our diminishment; rather, a decision to come alive in joy. This is love, freedom, and everything we do want. The only requirement is the decision to be honest and to want only truth.

What we are talking about is only sanity – the acceptance of reality as real. Only because of the ego’s grip, sanity is elusive, and the world remains in suffering.
