The ego offers no solution

Let us look with any level of honesty at the solutions to this crisis which are being offered. The ego has convinced us that our choice is either 1) to hide away and stop living until this virus goes away, or 2) go on with life and face death and a massive casualty count.

Option two is impossible to the ego because it is now paralyzed by fear and cowardice. But, while it isn’t widely recognized yet, option one is perhaps even more destructive to the ego because deadly disease is not going away. On top of this, everything the ego cares about (lifestyle, image, status, possessions, etc.) will be slowly lost if we are not brave enough to face life. So neither of these options offer anything resembling a solution—and yet no other solution is being offered.

The ego has no solution and is cornered. It has no idea which would allow it to live on. Of course, this is nothing new to the ego because the ego’s dictum is “seek but do not find.” Altering between suspicion at best and viciousness at worst, the ego is always wrong, always confused, and always has been. It has not been able to solve poverty, nor create governments that provide freedom and liberty, nor address the impending climate crisis, nor create any kind of lasting happiness. It offers only fleeting pleasures and its ups are never as high as the downs that always follow. Avoid the truth and you will eventually face painful consequences and crisis.

There is only one solution to this crisis. The ego must die so that we may live. This should be quite easy because the ego is the cause of all suffering, all illness, and everything we do not want. Cling to it and experience hell. Or simply choose to destroy your ego and awaken to a life of joy, love, and health. There is a good with no opposite and there is one solution for every problem. Do you want it?

Abscondo Podcast #82: This is the rapture, the so-called "second-coming" of Jesus Christ, and this is how to survive the end-times.

We are witnessing the death of the ego. To understand the implications, everyone needs to understand the meaning behind the story of the rapture. Those who do not awaken will not survive.

Why this is the rapture, the second-coming of Jesus Christ

IMG_20200327_101333_120

 
For a long time, the world has mistaken the pleasures of ego for happiness.  The ego has become so normal that most of us don't really know what it is.
 
They say that we will not go back to normal. This is true. Ego in this world is presently dying, and when it finally passes, we will never want it again.
 
What is happening now is what my dad always called the "second coming of Jesus Christ". He waited his entire life for this, but now I wonder whether he will recognize it.
 
What Christians call "the devil" also goes by the name of ego. The story goes that, for a long time, the world will be ruled entirely by a false prophet---a satan (collective ego). Then Christ will return and will rise up to save the believers.
 
Like all spiritual stories, this was meant to teach us a wisdom that is eternally true. The death of ego is inevitable because ego was always only an illusion. Illusions always get exposed. Christ---our divine identity within---will live on for those who have faith in the truth. Those who cling too tightly to illusion will not survive. The sooner we embrace the inevitable outcome, the less painful this will be.
 
I define and write about ego extensively in my work and teach the truth of our divinity. Follow the links. I will also be speaking and writing more on this in the coming days.

Stay centered

Imagine yourself stuck to this wheel.

IMG_20200326_121501_192

To reach for or cling to anything in the external world, such as status or possessions, is to move from the center of the wheel further toward its edges. 

Now imagine the wheel in motion. The more you reach, the further out toward the edge you go. While the ride is still slow, you can still hang on. But as the wheel races faster and faster, you will be become sick from the ups and downs and flung about until you eventually are thrown off.

But stay at the center and you will remain calm and still. No matter how fast the wheel turns, you will remain safe and at peace. The world is spinning very fast right now. We need to find the center of the wheel.

These daily teachings will help you learn to enjoy life at the center of the wheel. It has nothing to do with discipline or will-power. There is nothing you would want that needs to be sacrificed. The way isn't hard, but it is very different.

If you let yourself be blown to and fro, you lose touch with your root. If you let restlessness move you, you lose touch with who you are. – Tao Te Ching

You have been expecting so much from yourself for a very long time. You’ve worked so hard to live up to your own expectations and to provide for the ones you so dearly love. Now it may feel as though the story of your life is beyond your control. You may feel like you are blowing in the wind and feel very restless, indeed.

Who you are is not found in anything external, nor is your strength and security. As you may even be forced to let go of the old normal, know with absolute faith that what always remains is who you are. Though it may sometimes feel otherwise, that which is real about you is changeless and beyond threat.

There is no greater gift that anyone can experience than to live in truth—to shed all that which is false or have it taken away from you—so that you are finally free to be you. The only thing you ever wanted was to feel good, to love and to be loved. This is yours now and always because it is who you are.

Please comment with any questions or feedback and I will respond.

There are no exceptions to this message because the lack of exceptions is the message. -A Course in Miracles

What is a miracle? A miracle is nothing other than an act of love. To act in love is to perform miracles.

Perfect love is joy and no suffering can be found within joy. Following what is both true and wholly desirable ought to be very easy. No sacrifice is asked of you and nothing that is real or desirable can be lost.

Nothing is easier than recognizing and embracing this truth and nothing is more difficult to resist. Yet seeking exceptions to truth and a sea of confusion is the insane goal of this world. The world has chosen enormous suffering only to walk the foolish path of trying to make random illusions real and the simple truth false. Everything of this world can be enjoyed, but only after we humble ourselves by taking the obvious step to honor truth as real.

Until this lesson is learned, the suffering will only continue to increase. That’s the purpose of suffering—to push us into anguish until the obvious, beautiful, simple lesson of love is learned. You can learn it now and join together in the healing of the entire world.

Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? -Tao Te Ching

Spiritual awakening isn’t a process of doing and learning; rather, one of undoing and unlearning.

The mud is the conditioning, the thoughts we have been taught to think. The world’s lesson is fear and all the seemingly different forms of suffering and disease flow from it.

The mud is a confused mind whose mantra is “seek but do not find.” To have any confusion between love and fear is the same as confusing God and the devil and attempting to serve both.

Fear is the problem, never the solution

Fear is stress, anxiety, and the root of all negative emotion. Fear taxes the body and weakens the immune system. Then we are susceptible to a virus, then still in fear we are unable to heal, then some die. Then the world responds by making everyone even more fearful than they were to begin with. What is the endgame? How do we stop this dark spiral?

This cataclysmic situation will never end until we recognize fear as the only cause and then choose the only solution, which is unconditional love. Love casts out fear.

This message may sound strange to some, but it is ancient wisdom and it wasn’t strange to Jesus. He talked a lot about love because he recognized that only love lifts us from hell. You can recognize this message and, rather than giving into fear, become Christ-like. The world needs leaders to extend perfect love and to show others the way. This is our calling and we must find the strength and courage to respond. It is no joke right now.

Danger and death will always be a part of life. It is here to teach us to overcome it with love. Recognize, only for a moment, that fear cannot possibly solve this crisis. This virus will never be purged from the planet and, even if it was, there will be another virus and endless other reasons to fear.

Do you really think the solution is to hide away from life behind our walls and our masks? If so, the systems we depend upon will be destroyed and most of the people in the world are going to die. We are alive now and we must learn to love now or we are in serious trouble. We must become brave and walk in the dignity of our divinity.

This is the most essential message and lesson of our lives. I released a podcast on this topic today which spells this out in great depth. Please search for Abscondo Podcast #80 on YouTube or wherever you normally listen to podcasts.
