All confusion arises from the conflict between the reality of love and the illusion of fear

Today, I am re-committing to a life absent of fear. I recognize that, when I have allowed any fear to become real for me, then I am cut off from the divine, I am paralyzed as a creator, I am lost in confusion, and serve no purpose.

I also realize that fearful ideas and stories are no guide at all. I can easily navigate any situation and make any decision correctly without fearful details. I don’t need to understand how dangerous a vaccine is to know that I do not need a vaccine and am free to make my own choice on the matter. I don’t need to understand the sick and brutal truths about the powerful and corrupt when I know that total safety is the eternal reality for those who always forgive and do not attack.

Many try to capture your attention with fearful messages. There is always a moral justification for this, but causing fear is always cruel because it leaves you lost, stagnant, and depressed. I have only been happy in life when I have filtered out fear entirely. I withdraw attention from the news. I disengage from the dark, frightening conspiracy theories about things we cannot know for sure. I shift all my attention to the value system and thought system of perfect love.

All that is not loving is false, insane, and does not even exist. Love is truth, beauty, safety, freedom, and everything we do want. Love is light, and it cannot be conquered by the darkness of fear. But join in that darkness, and you may become lost.

My only purpose is to love, and from the perspective of love to always be creating. Raising children lovingly is one of the most creative endeavors because they, in turn, will love and create. Sharing this message with others is the same. I will create in music, in writing, in other art forms, and in my work. I will create visibly and in private, both in this life and beyond.

All confusion arises from the conflict between the reality of love and the illusion of fear. Today I am leaving no more room for confusion. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

To undo the past in the present is to release the future

How do we undo the past? By recognizing false perceptions and beliefs. By correcting a wrong. By forgiving a person for an error. By accepting what happened as something that had to happen. By seeing everything from the perspective of love.

Without undoing the past, a different future is impossible. How can anything change when the very same ideas, beliefs, judgements, and perceptions continue to define our thoughts and behavior?

To undo the past is to awaken to the present—to realize that the stories you carry with you are not here at all. Each present moment is a clean slate—a space where we are free to create whatever we desire now. This is called letting go—which means losing nothing of value while gaining everything. It is also called awakening, and it is available to everyone each moment. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

The world’s crisis is not mine and does not threaten me

The world is now openly insane. Yet the sane minority remain calm and without fear because we know what is real and unreal. We know that illnesses, attacks, threats, punishments, and lies are unreal to the point that they do not even exist. These are all just fear-based concepts of the ego—which is always wrong, confused about everything, and totally impotent.

Only what is real exists. What is true must be eternal, unchanging, and beyond threat (otherwise it isn’t real). There are certain laws to reality, and if we align with and obey these laws, we remain in perfect joy and peace. Here we cannot be threatened by the external violence and fear-based insanity around us.

In the simplest terms, reality is unconditional love and perfect honesty. We might call this the foundation of morality. Each of the Bible’s Ten Commandments, for example, relate to love and honesty. From this foundation, we can ask profound questions about what love is and what love does. What is it not and what does it not do? We can notice what happens when we think and act in a way that is not loving. We can also look at the inescapable consequences of dishonesty.

Belief in idols is the opposite of faith in reality. Belief in idols means belief that something unreal has power (status, wealth, a government, a healthcare system, a vaccine, etc.). In perfect love and perfect honesty, we are complete and perfect. Nothing can be added to complete and perfect—so there is no reason to seek or care about anything else. Everything we need in the world effortlessly flows to us when we shrug off idols and place all faith in reality.

This is no sacrifice and is not even difficult because nothing else but love and honesty are desirable. When you put all your faith here—when this becomes your reality—then that which is unreal does not even impact you. As the energy of love and honesty, you cannot be attacked. If someone tries, it will not affect your emotions and your loving response will diffuse the situation. All the fear mongering in the news, the endless threats of sickness, death, and violence against us—this is their attempt to make us believe in idols. Their idols are not any cure and their illness is not a reality.

There is only one way to end this crisis. We must want the truth—the good, bad, and the ugly. We must then learn what God’s perfect love is and what it does. We must understand what the ego is and does—and slay this serpent forever. The ego is that fear within you, that stress, that anger and desperation. It is also the collective ego that is driving all this madness everywhere. Fortunately, this crisis has finally exposed the ego’s insanity and ugliness—which has been living beneath the surface for thousands of years. Now that the insanity is exposed, there is no going back to a world where the ego can appear normal and functional. We are at ego’s end and God wins.

The only way forward, as individuals and as a society, is through unconditional love and perfect honesty. Our job is to learn to love ourselves, to humble ourselves and surrender to the Source, to find the bravery to speak the truth and want the truth—and then to extend that perfect love and truth-telling to a world of lost souls who need healing. To doubt this message is to decide against healing and joy and for suffering and crisis. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

I am not my self; the difference between your identity as consciousness and the ego-identity

Consider the expression, “I can’t stand myself anymore” or “I don’t know what to do with myself”. You might ask, who is the “I” and who is the “self” here? A person cannot be split into two identities. One must be the real identity. In these sentences, the “self” being referred to is the ego or false identity. The “I” is the true identity—or “I am”. To spiritually awaken is to identify with the “I am” and not with the conceptual “self”.

You are not your thoughts; rather, you are the entity observing those thoughts, listening to the voice in the head, and perceiving everything else going on in life. The voice in the head is mostly insane.

Imagine spending one whole day saying out loud everything that runs through your head. It would be terribly embarrassing and annoying, so we keep most of it inside. Yet we find it perfectly sane and normal to take those thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions seriously and to react to them. If you believe the voice in the head is you, you will even defend those thoughts as if fighting for your life. Unfortunately, this ego-driven state is a dangerous and ineffective way to live—a roller-coaster of drama, suffering, and crisis.

The mind will continue to do what it does, but we don’t have to take every thought seriously. We can learn to recognize the negative and fearful thoughts simply as ego—and as ultimately unreal. When I talk about escaping the ego, it doesn’t mean that all the ego’s thoughts disappear completely. I am talking about observing the thoughts and recognize them for what they are—as merely the functioning of the mind (a “useful tool” as Eckhart Tolle often puts it).

There is nothing wrong with the mind, but you are not your mind. You are consciousness, the awareness, life itself. To meditate is to learn not to constantly think, and not to chase a train of thought. What is left during those brief moments when there is no thought—that is the essence of who you are. Become aware of your “I am” here, and you have awakened. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

We the people have all the power

No country, aside from China, has engaged in more human rights violations in this past year than Slovakia. Along with many other corrupted countries like it, the Slovak government and media has perpetrated the greatest war against humanity that has ever been committed. Masks required everywhere. Mandatory testing every week. No right to see family and loved ones or travel anywhere even with a test.

That doesn’t work? Double down again. Now respirators are required if we want to buy food. Endless misery and violent threats in the range of 1,900 EUR for a population who barely earns that much in 3 months—all while the small businesses are stolen from hard-working entrepreneurs.

Yet again today, as I have done for months, I walked through the center of the city without a mask. See, I know that God walks with me—and that in God rests all power, truth, and wisdom. The corrupt government believes it has the power to remove God entirely by stealing our God-given rights to step outside, to breath fresh air, and to smile with and hug loved ones as we please. No government has this power and never will.

I walk through this beautiful world free and fearless, and I am not alone. God also walks with the millions of other Slovaks everywhere who are bravely doing the same—doing what’s right. This is a question of morality and it is the calling of our time.

We also take our children to playgrounds (illegaly) and smile at each other as they play together. The fearful, obedient double-maskers walk by with their families, clumsily explaining to their poor children why they cannot go to the playground. Going to the playground now has power. TV-watchers watch from their windows, in amazement, as the innocent children play soccer and basketball (illegally and maskless)—wondering how these uncorrupted souls could be so much braver than they are. Death has come to all those who cower in darkness and fear, but the awakened are now healthier and more alive than ever.

The more this sick government doubles-down, the more is required for those who are awake. We have the power, simply by not wearing a mask, to communicate to the countless brothers and sisters we pass, that this fearful pandemic story is a lie. This abusive government has not even bothered to give us the number of total deaths in 2020. In total disrespect to the population, apparently they haven’t quite gotten around to counting. How does total deaths (from all causes) compare to 2019 and 2018? Is it the same? 5% higher? We haven’t been told, but we do know that a normal flu does not cancel God and does not strip us of our human rights indefinitely.

I want to thank all the good, moral, decent police officers who are doing what’s right. As children, they dreamt of serving and protecting, of arresting bad guys, and none of them ever agreed to be corrupt instruments of a sick government that is abusing the population. The police seem to be doing what is right because they are good people who know the difference between right and wrong. We love, respect, and admire you.

I also want to acknowledge the fundamental decency of the Slovak people. In this past year, not a single person has scolded me for my acts of sanity. I know that, in places like the US, people end up in arguments and fights over this. But here, the basic respect and decency still exists.

As more people turn off the TV, as we look upon our brothers and sisters with love, as we recognize a world and a country filled with an underlying beauty that will always remain, and as we simply, quietly do what’s right—we see that we, the people, have all the power because God has made truth, freedom, and beauty our birth right.

Only Heaven exists now

"Earth is being born again in new perspective. Night has gone, and we have come together in the light.

From here we give salvation to the world, for it is here salvation was received. The song of our rejoicing is the call to all the world that freedom is returned, that time is almost over, and God’s Son has but an instant more to wait until his Father is remembered, dreams are done, eternity has shined away the world, and only Heaven now exists at all."

Purification is the decision to align your beliefs with higher truths

It is a choice to disassociate from the ego. A decision to value the miracle of the now, to practice non-resistance to what is, and to always respond to everyone and everything lovingly.

Higher truth is grasped in the form of various concepts and words, yet it is one whole. If you understand one piece of it (e.g., forgiveness), you have accessed the whole. This whole is nothing other than perfect knowledge, and perfect knowledge is superior to mere perception. It is also far superior to so-called rationality (which does not even exist).

Higher truth includes some of the following spiritual beliefs:

  • I believe that I am not my mind; rather, that my true identity is formless consciousness (or awareness, love, presence…these are all different words that mean the same thing and the words do not matter).
  • I do not believe in the reality of fear because I know that I am eternally invulnerable beyond form.
  • I believe that I am perfectly complete now, in this eternal, ongoing present moment, and am waiting for no future destination of salvation or heaven. The entire reality exists now and there is no other time than now.
  • I believe that the thought system of love is perfect and wholly true. Sin is where love is not. Anything done in love is done correctly. One need only learn what love truly is and what love truly does. There are books about it. I wrote a free eBook that you may enjoy on this topic, and it is called Belove: How to End Pain by Escaping Your Ego.
  • As love, we believe not in manipulation or attack; rather, in the thought system that is effortlessly giving, creating, accepting, open, free, fearless, joyful, blissful, and capable of solving every problem because the only problem is lack of love.

Purified, we feel the perfect energy flow from within and life is instantly and constantly perfect. From this true belief system, our decisions are very different. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Life is experienced beyond the mind

So much goes on in our heads, but nothing real can be experienced in thought.

Notice how everything real, beautiful, and enjoyable happens during the gaps between thoughts. We come alive when the analysis, the naming, and the judging of good and bad stops. This seeing with true vision is available to everyone through the perspective of consciousness or "I am". Focused attention with a still mind.

The thoughts, analysis, and stories of the mind are useful at times. The mind is a useful tool, but life is experienced when attention is shifted away from thought. This is learned through spiritually-alive teachings and through meditation. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.

Lack of love in this world is the only problem

Ignorant of love, humans are a cancer on the planet. We destroy. We use up. We suffer.

Enough. The only priority in this life is that we learn to love. In love we heal, we create, we provide, and we enjoy.

Most people do not know what love is. Love’s energy and wisdom has been lost in this world. We have it upside-down. Everything about life that doesn’t matter has been made to matter; yet it still doesn’t matter because love is still all that matters.

Love is not what you find or get from anyone, it is what you are. Love is not a feeling or an arrangement, it is a way of being in truth.

Forgive yourself. Forgive and accept it all. There is nothing wrong with you and there never has been. There is nothing you need to become other than what you are: love. Be that.

Love does not come to you; rather, it comes from within you. Let go of all that is blocking the love flowing from within. This is success. Furthermore, horrific revelations are about emerge that will require us all to see the world from the perspective of love, if only to maintain sanity in the face of evil. We want only love. We use it to transform darkness. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
