Infinite Sea

“Experience is only as limited as we live it.”

Power of Perception:
Our perspective defines our reality. As human beings, we personify this power. Why and what we set our focus on determines the nature of our experience. We concede to a lifestyle of duality in an artificial society. We are seduced by a singular pursuit of survival within a diverse existence of all possibility. Eventually we learn how to alter and manipulate perception to disguise the absence of our accountability, commitment and integrity. We often choose to observe things as we desire, not as they are. The perceptual filters we invent are a defense mechanism to enable our insecurities and proliferate an illusion of life.

The Illusion of Relativity:
We are defined by relativity. The known is much more appealing than the infinite mysteries comprising the universe. Relativity preoccupies us with a superficial sense of well-being, purpose and security. Social reality conditions us to be dependent upon all we know. It is our reference point when we venture from the safe haven of the ordinary. Our pursuit to protect ourselves with all we are accustomed establishes our self-imposed captivity. Relativity is one of the greatest illusions humanity has ever invented. Our reliance upon it negates our personal power and diminishes our possibility.

Mayhem and Malice:
All the violence surrounding us both obvious and obscured reflects the energetic turmoil that resides within. Most lack an awareness of and relationship with the multi-dimensional elements of energy. The tumultuous ebb and flow of contemporary reality wreaks havoc upon the unconscious many. An energetic battle rages on within and between us. It is a vortex that seizes our personal power, purpose and destiny. Our weaknesses are often used against us to induce our indifference, obedience and prejudice. Our oblivion to this conflict renders us victims of our own cynicism, fear and judgement.

Energy Virus:
A viral “dis-ease” is spreading at an epidemic proportion. It is diminishing the energetic consciousness of humanity. It flourishes in our physical, mental and emotional attachments through our reactions to conditions and outcomes beyond our control. When we are triggered by another or a circumstance, we energetically attach ourselves to them or it with our aggravation, anger, upset and vengeance. Our thoughts, words and actions become contaminated with the toxicity of our rage. It is a vicious cycle that burdens and stymies us with a dense and distorted energy. Most of us never even acknowledge the energy virus’ to which we are afflicted.

Environmental Distortion:
Everything in our lives begins and ends with energy. Its nature determines the quality of our experience. Each day we are bombarded by an excess of negatively charged energy. The energetic currents we encounter either empower or weaken the elements of our existence. It is not what we are aware of that takes the greatest toll. It is all to which we are oblivious that gradually distorts and destroys the very fabric of our being. Social reality is teeming with synthetic, electromagnetic energy. It breaks down the essence of our being on a subatomic level which leads to the conditions of our premature demise.

“The mind is a house of mirrors.”

Mind Games:
We live in a mind-based reality that appeals almost exclusively to our intelligence and instinct. Our society is deficient of intuition and emotion. Humanity is dependent upon its thought and desire as a method of survival. Our hearts and souls are held hostage by the authority we give to our minds and bodies. We are easily ensnared by the vicious cycles of our logic and habits in a fleeting quest to achieve instant yet fleeting gratification. Our mind has stolen the key to our possibility. We invent fantasies of how we think we need to survive, instead of creating and living into realities in which we are empowered to thrive.

Line in the Sand:
We are in a massive energetic shift. It is an era of powerful transition. For some it has brought a flow of inspiration, yet for many an experience of great challenge. Reality has been turned upside down by a few for the suppression of the many. Modern society is driven by accumulation, competition, fear and manipulation. In the interest of conscious evolution, it is vital we establish personal energetic boundaries to maintain and protect the longevity and quality of our existence. It is our destiny to embody our soul in our lives. Our personal power can only be claimed and fulfilled when we are accountable for our energy.

Being Present to Our Presence:
It is excruciating to witness all the inequalities, injustices and intolerance that exist in the world. Let alone the energetic impressions we feel to which we are oblivious. Humanity is suffocated by its own self-righteousness and silent violence. We have become the monsters of which we were always afraid. It is not enough for us to occasionally observe and forgive ourselves of our venomous thoughts, words, behavior and actions. We must be present to the impacts our expressions have and transform who, how and why we are being. Our presence either takes or makes a difference. Whatsoever the outcome we manifest is our choice.

A Force of Energy:
We are not at all what we seem. Society pulls a common reality over our vision to manipulate the perception and experience we have of ourselves. We are an expression of multi-dimensional energy both extraordinary and infinite. Our energy can either free or enslave us, others and our environment in ways far exceeding our perception. Its impression goes well beyond our awareness, imagination and understanding. Our personal power is sourced and sustained by the nature of our energy. It is the essence of who we are. Everything we envision and become is a creation from who we are being.

Energy of Being:
We are at the crossroads of our energetic experience. We cannot truly alter, control or impact the illusion of social reality. Yet, it is our destiny to transcend the influence we allow it to have over our lives. We are powerful transformers of energy. Being is the manifestation of our soul. Who we are being is the only distinction that truly makes a difference for ourselves and others. In each moment we have an opportunity to be present to the quality of our energy, transform our experience and become an expression of the universe. Our life is an infinite sea of possibility. Our soul is the compass of our experience.

“It’s much easier being a master of illusion than a servant of truth.”

The Truth We Are

“Truth has all be stigmatized a societal syndrome.”

Us and Them:
Our social reality is built upon a foundation of competition, egocentricity and survival. We accept and adopt this as the standard of life. Yet, it is never advantageous to all. With a calculated precision, we have been conditioned to believe what we receive is a measure of our identity, purpose and value. We reach for superficial happiness in a holographic oblivion. We are habituated to depend on everyone and everything distinct of ourselves. The contentment we seek cannot be found in the paradigm of social reality. It will always be an elusive pursuit posing more as a daydream than our truth.

Spectator Sport:
We are raised to be bystanders. Our success in society is dependent upon our conformity to its parameters. We tend to bear envy and judgement for the lives of others as we sacrifice the potential of our own. Our amusement, criticism and exaltation of others distracts and diverts us from our passion and purpose. We are spectators of our life. We run around and over each other in our pursuit to reach an artificial pleasure we are programmed to desire. Our perception of existence is manipulated by a global simulation to control and distort our experience. Life is a game we are required to watch yet restricted to play.

Divide and Conquer:
Fixed social dynamics pit us against each other. Business, opinion, politics, religion, sports and nationalism are all common elements of our dependent bondage in societal competition. We have accepted a cutthroat reality as custom and have invested our lives in its marketplace. Our exposure to this reality has condemned us to contrived, solitary victories in a society rife with impending defeat. We see others as the enemy to be thwarted and destroyed amidst the engineered chaos of authoritarian supremacy. Violence both internalized and expressed has compromised and diminished our relatedness with ourselves and each other.

Fear Factor:
We assume fear instead of choosing freedom. Fear is the greatest silent killer in the history of humanity. We make it the destroyer of our personal health, intuition, possibility, power and vision. There is an emotional payoff we all receive when we surrender to our fear. It has become the voluntary custom of our human indifference. The perfect excuse that exonerates us from all accountability. Fear is the weapon of mass destruction used willfully in many ways. We even wield it against ourselves when we resist our personal moments of truth. Fear is the power we concede to our ego.

Reckoning:
We have been conditioned to accept and adopt a social reality that is systematically being dismantled. The relativity to which we have all grown accustomed has been altered beyond perceptual familiarity innumerable times. Cultural, political, social and racial tensions are being accelerated and intensified. They are broadcast by the mainstream media in a biased and erroneous portrayal. Inequality, injustice and intolerance are the roots of our societal programming. They have distorted our experience of life. Whomsoever manipulates humanity’s perception of reality controls the world.

“Live alive, stand for the wisdom to see…Live alive, stand for the freedom to be.”

The War Within:
The battle that surrounds us reflects one raging within. Our willful refusal to acknowledge and account for our inner violence enables it to exist. The doubt and distress we present when faced with our own wisdom and destiny sustains our struggle. Our procrastination is our loss of power. We are prisoners of our own duality. Our fear and pride tend to deceive us into believing our linear engagement with reality is an earnest fight. Freedom is not found in our ability to succeed and survive in a simulated reality. We transcend it when we claim and exercise our personal power to create our life.

Awaken:
Social reality is an illusion. We sacrifice our ability to distinguish ourselves from “the program.” Our arrogance negates our opportunity to become our greatest expression. The gravity of virtual reality has burdened us with false honor, obligation and responsibility. We allow ourselves to be deceived by what we believe is real. Reality is as subjective as opinion. Yet, we have been socially accustomed to hold it synonymous with truth. It is not enough to be conscious of society’s inequities. We must also be present of how our personal lifestyles contribute to the decline of human civility and sensibility.

A Destiny with Consciousness:
Our quality of life is determined by our being-ness. Who we are being is the manifestation of our truth. When we are present to who we are being, it transforms our experience. It is our life’s creation. Our awareness determines the relatedness we have with ourselves and others. It is the heart of our existence. Consciousness is the language through which we relate with our soul. It is the source of our being. All possibility for ourselves and our lives manifests through our consciousness. The universe is an infinite abundance of energy. Our common destiny is to become its expression.

Soul Inheritance:
We are multi-dimensional beings. Our soul is one with the energy of the universe. It conveys and transmutes life force through our intuition to our heart center. Our heart emanates a powerful, spherical field of electromagnetic energy that invigorates every cell in our mind and body. It transforms the molecular dynamic of the air and water of which we primarily consist. Every human being has this living legacy. Whether we choose to become and express this birthright is uniquely up to us. The fulfillment of our destiny is dependent upon our willingness to be an expression of the universe.

A Beacon of Truth:
How and why we choose to live is who we become. Living a reality of how society perceives us to be is a sentence of spiritual slavery. The life we are destined to live is a manifestation of our insights, thoughts, words and actions. We are who we inspire ourselves to be. Our opportunity to be for others as we would ourselves is a vital expression of being. Personal freedom is found in our intention and willingness to live with the universe, ourselves and each other. We are more powerful than we can possibly imagine. When all has been said and done, only the watermark of our truth will remain.

“Being is the only way to transcend social chaos and embrace personal truth.”

A Source of Energy

“Energy is our soul’s currency.”

Social Nature:
One of the greatest illusions ever invented is the belief that we are merely a mind within a body. That our heart’s sole purpose is to circulate blood and maintain our body’s bio-rhythm. Our human conditioning and daily indoctrination into social reality certainly supports this commonly lived duality. There is another illusion. One born of artificial comfort, fulfillment, purpose and security. One to which we as humans desperately cling to supplement our lack of engagement and ownership of our lives. As we are altered and molded into everything we rebelled against as teenagers, we inevitably acquiesce to an illusion of being.

Free-For-All:
Personal and social chaos is energetic in origin. We are often inclined to walk a contrary path. Not because we disagree with the norms of society. It is that we adopt a conceited outlook, even to our own detriment, for the payoff of being right. Every day, billions of people all over the world survive on egocentricity. Selfishness produces a cultural and social vortex that severely disrupts and distorts the continuum of reality. The energy we attract is equivalent to what we project. As human beings, we are so powerful we can distort and/or transform ourselves, others and our environment by the quality of energy we emanate.

Soul Currency:
Money as a means of fulfillment and success is the wool that has been pulled over our existence. Society is engineered to uphold this hollow pursuit at the cost of our personal awareness, creativity, power and purpose. An era of opportunity for intuitive empowerment has been and is always present. It begins with our choice to discover, claim and express who and why we are. True worth is not found in our bank accounts, possessions or the positions we may hold. It is the expression, measure and quality of our energy. It sources and inspires our lives. When we open to the infinite abundance of universal energy, we become all we may imagine.

Freedom in Discovery:
We are multi-dimensional beings. We have the potential for so much more. By design, the parameters of social reality prohibit us from becoming aware and aligned with our transcendental qualities. Our authoritarian society primarily stimulates our body and mind as a form of distraction, manipulation and oppression to maintain dominion over humanity. Only our enlightened emotion and intuition can free us from the spell of social reality. Our quest for creativity, healing, fulfillment and purpose begins with us. We must embrace and illuminate the shadows within to transform ourselves.

The Illusion of Enlightenment:
Social reality does not empower, encourage or support our education of and exercise in being. Our experience of being has been distorted and manipulated into a life of sensing and thinking. Authentic being is a vital distinction between linear and multi-dimensional existence. We have been conditioned to believe that enlightenment is something we work towards to be achieved “someday.” We are already enlightened. We must free ourselves from the social programming that has compromised our authentic being. The true measure of our universal energy is negated when we choose to believe more in who the world makes us and less in who we are.

“Energy is not produced from what we do, it is created by who we are.”

The Art of Being:
Being is an act of personal creativity. In contemporary society, its very nature is revolutionary. It is the only way for us to become an expression of our soul. The difference between being and doing is remarkably overlooked and sheds light upon the degree of our oblivion. The choice between exercising our routine and being extraordinary inspires the progression of our personal transformation. Being is a culmination of our senses, instincts, thoughts, feelings and intuition. Who we are being is an essential art form to which we are all gifted. It is the manifestation of our soul in life.

Dimensions of Life:
Our being is four dimensional. The body and mind are obvious necessities that allow us to interact with social reality. Our heart produces a powerful electromagnetic essence that expands well beyond our physical awareness. It emits an infinite, universal energy. Our soul is the source of our life force and conveys it through the dimensions of our chakra system. Our chakras distribute this energy for our daily experience. The nature of the energy that emanates from our chakras is defined by who we choose to be. The equilibrium between our soul, heart, mind and body is vital in establishing our relatedness with the universe.

Torus of Energy:
Each of us has an energetic field called a “torus.” It circulates energy continuously from the center of our being where our soul, heart, mind and body unite. Like the inhale and exhale of our conscious breath, it radiates and recycles energy in an eternal ebb and flow. Our chakra system operates in synergy with the energy currents of the universe. It is the sustenance of our life force. It is also the source of our creativity and its realization. Our torus is a vessel for the expansion and expression of our consciousness. As we become aware of and interactive with it, our conscious energy transforms our experience of being.

Illumination:
Our consciousness empowers our energetic experience. Our energy is not central nor exclusive to the standards of our common sense and institutionalized intellect. We tire and contract illness when we are motivated and seduced by social opposition. We are so much more than we are conditioned to believe. When we apply all elements of our being, we generate an infinite source of energy. It is an essential necessity to enlighten our emotions and live from our intuition. We are four-dimensional beings who have the inherent potential to illuminate ourselves and our social environment. We are everything we will ever need.

The Source:
The universe consists entirely of energy. How we receive, transform and express it determines its measure, nature and purpose. The awareness we have of our personal energy allows us to access, focus and produce it appropriate to our need. We are not emulators. We are creators. We are biological and spiritual superconductors who generate massive amounts of energy. Intuition is the only way through which we may manifest our fulfillment. Our destiny is our extraordinary capacity to be an energetic river of universal possibility. Everything we have been, are and will ever be is the realization of our conscious energy.

“We are not a reflection of society, we are an expression of the universe.”

Kaleidoscope

“Manipulation is our common mode of expression.”

Perception Deception:
How we perceive our experience of life becomes our reality. How we transform our experience of life becomes our truth. This is an essential distinction often buried beneath the cavalcade of complexity with which we occupy our lives. Most of us focus our daily intent on surviving rather than thriving. Society indoctrinates us into this mind-driven lifestyle to disassociate and distract us from our true purpose. Infinite facets of perception and tangents of thought overstimulate our senses. We allow ourselves to be confused and deceived by our self-induced psychosis, primarily influenced by the turbulent tides of our social environment.

The Truth of Reality:
Reality is not “real.” No matter how foreign or obscure this may seem, reality is our inevitable human captivity. It is the ultimate form of slavery. Reality is an engineered projection imposed upon us by authoritarian, hierarchal, secret societal, sociopathic people hellbent on control, greed, manipulation and power. It is a human invention to confine and suppress our consciousness, empathy and spirituality. Inevitably, all of us concede to this omnipresent force in fear of failure, prejudice, ridicule and segregation. Reality is a vortex invented to consume everything distinct from its intended design. It is an illusion to distort what is real.

Spin Factor:
The most influential element of perception is how it is spun. We each have a unique perspective on our lives and society. Yet, we allow our viewpoints to be distorted and manipulated by mass media broadcasting agenda-laden information by and for exclusive ways and means. It is not the rare, drastic and massive shifts in our perception that make the greatest impact. It is the daily, mechanical and subtle swings to which we have been desensitized. Perception is spun every day and way to sustain benefit for the few at the cost of the many. In a society desperate to believe in “reality,” perspective is easily altered, biased and invented.

Exaltation:
We are born and bred to idolize and praise. Most of us become inferior because we are socially conditioned to give away our personal power as a necessity to succeed in reality. Our foundation of existence is built upon an unstable ground of ego, emulation, greed and self-righteousness. We occupy our lives with physical desires, intellectual debate and elementary emotion. Our soul is a desert devoid of the life we have long sacrificed to accumulate, conform and consume. We have made it more attractive and convenient to celebrate and imitate the lives of others at the cost of our own. Like our power, we eagerly give away the onus of our perception.

We Are What We See:
Our lives are defined by how we view them. Though we have various senses, our sight greatly impacts our experience. Most of what we become is a culmination of what we perceive. Our vision dominates our existence. We are entirely reliant upon what we see. Our eyes deceive us as much as our reality. What we “want” to see often overpowers what we “need” to see. Every day we adopt a common reality based upon how and what we observe. Society is designed to imprison us into duality. Linear perception and the simulated dynamics of “reality” prohibit our ability to manifest our personal vision.

“It doesn’t matter what happens around us, it only matters what happens within.”

Dreamworld:
Everything distinct from our individual being is an illusion. It is a projection of rudimentary cause and effect in which we adopt and invest based upon our circumstances, decisions and energy. We have been conditioned to believe that the external world is all that is real. That what lies within us is devoid of intention, meaning, purpose and value. We have sacrificed our personal power for artificial belonging, intelligence, status and wealth. We have allowed our perceptions to be manipulated to the utmost degree. In so doing, we have surrendered our heart and soul. Society and reality are systems designed specifically to divert us from ourselves.

A Hand in the Act:
Our perceptions have been programmed to serve an authoritarian agenda. They sustain a socially engineered reality at the cost of our creativity and purpose. We are anesthetized to the effects of this conditioning due to our daily, self-prescribed dose of synthetically mindless amusement and entertainment. We are stimulated by an addictive dependence on fear and fantasy to escape the dire perceptions we adopt of reality. This preoccupies us from becoming the greatest expression of ourselves and fulfilling our destiny. We allow this constant and peripheral anxiety to alter our outlook on life and propagate its eventual downfall.

Diamond in the Rough:
Humanity is a multi-faceted diamond of perception. There are over six billion viewpoints, each one as essential as the next. The diversity of our vision is measured not by the strength of our own, yet by the willingness to see beyond the borders of conventional perception. Our desire to discover, experience and illuminate the mysteries of ourselves transforms all we may encounter. The perception we choose is the bridge to manifest what is possible in our life. Our vision is inspired by the personal commitment and empowerment for which we live. We are the saviors for whom we have been waiting.

Epiphany of Insight:
The truth of what is cannot be found in contemporary forms of media, whether they are social, printed, forums, lectures, videos or even sacred texts. Individual truth is conceived in a vision, realized in one’s being and manifested as a lifestyle. Our personal revelations are multi-dimensional experiences always occurring within us. When we are present to these opportunities, our consciousness of, commitment to and engagement with them establishes our existence. Our insights are the sparks that illuminate and inspire our perceptions and lives. We are the sole creators of our evolution and transformation.

A Call for Consciousness:
Reality is a kaleidoscope of virtual stimuli to divert us from our true path. Our emergence from the shadows of society is vital to our becoming. It is our choice how we view, experience and create the world within and without. We are either victims of the greatest vicious cycle ever invented through our compliance and participation. Or we are our own saviors who cause our freedom, intention and personal power. It is our calling to envision and manifest all that our heart and soul embodies. We are the only person who will ever prevent ourselves from becoming all we may imagine. We are the source of our purpose.

“Our vision is the gateway to our consciousness.”

The Reality of Us

We are the problem that leads to the solution.”

Sole Superiority:

Nobody owes us, nor are we entitled to anything in this world.  Though it is an inconvenient truth, we are not of benefit to this earth.  We are a biological epidemic, consuming vital resources at the expense of our own equality, freedom, justice and purpose.  Our personal perceptions are processed through a virtually institutionalized marketplace of subjective reality.  Society prepares us for an artificially sheltered life. We are bred to be terrified of everyone and everything distinct from ourselves.  Our pride, prejudice and self-righteousness are imposed necessities for our social survival.

The “I” Syndrome:

We are culturally programmed to design our lives around ourselves.  Our justification for this self-centered strategy is the dire and inevitable personal, professional and social consequences should we refuse.  The focus of our ambition, attention and intention is entirely dictated by our ego.  Eventually, we become enslaved by the vicious cycle of our desire, want and vanity at the cost of our happiness, love and truth.  When faced with an opportunity to give and share, we often decide to thoughtlessly receive and accumulate.  Our survival becomes a comfortable euphemism for our egocentricity.

Human Obsolescence:

As much as our contemporary society invents ways to accelerate a market place of planned obsolescence for profit, so too has it become for human beings.  Awareness and practice in personal health is of meager priority.  Benevolence, ethics and virtues have been replaced by personal achievement, competition and wealth.  Apathy, denial and evasion compromises our sense of adventure, fulfillment and purpose.  Humanity has become a disposable life form, engineered, manipulated and prohibited to reach its true destiny.  Our shelf life declines as our appetite increases.

Enter the Void:

How we choose to live determines whether we are a creator or a destroyer.  There is no middle ground.  Who and how we are being is either an expression of our life or death.  We are seduced by society to be entertained and mystified by human decline, disgrace and destruction.  In many ways, it may make us feel better about the status of our own life when we see the downfalls and failures of others.  We live in the shadows of our superficiality and become inhabitants of a surreal reality.  Our choice or lack thereof condemns us to the adoption of our own oblivion.

The Illusion of Time:

If reality is the ball, time is the chain of our personal enslavement.  Time, like most things in this world, is only as influential as our perception empowers.  We have allowed our personal power to be inverted into a private prison.  The seemingly overwhelming effort and price of achieving our individual destiny, purpose and vision often outweighs its manifestation.  Time is an illusion of perception invented to distort and modify our multi-dimensionality into a linear duality.  The more we perceive our lives in the measurement of time, the more we give them away to this linear deception.

We live our lives through the eyes of others.”

Persuasion of Perception:

Perception is the most influential force in society.  In a civilization lacking creativity, faith and intuition, the social engineering and manipulation of observation is a business model for the industries we enable.  Power is not fame, politics, possession and wealth.  It is the ability to alter and control the way society perceives itself.  Every day in every way financial institutions, corporations, politicians and a myriad of agencies seek ways to implant and impose their agendas and motivations upon humanity.  Perception creates reality.  How we see the world is more powerful than anything in it.

Artificial Reality:

The reality we commonly experience in life is a complex simulation.  It is the greatest deception ever created.  As ingenious as its existence, is our engagement, faith and trust in it.  Reality is a projection that all of us accept and adopt as “real.”  However, it is anything but authentic.  The dynamic of reality is one that gives the impression of possibility and security, yet in truth is exclusive and perilous.  Those who understand its mechanics and probabilities often alter, distort and manipulate its design for advantage, position and profit.  The life we live is not at all as it seems.  It is an illusion.

Life Sentence:

Our lives are a dream.  They are a fabrication of social engineering designed to distract, entertain and preoccupy.  The common experience we all have isn’t really “life.”  It is a staged sequence of virtual events to disillusion, intimidate and manipulate our instincts, thoughts and emotions.  We are programmed to become disassociated from our souls since the time we are born.  Our lives are dictated more by external forces than those from within.  We are rats in a three-dimensional maze, ever searching for an exit that doesn’t exist.  The bars of our social prison are as pervasive as they are absolute.

Appeal of Testimony:

Before we can break free from the bonds of our adopted conditioning, we must first acknowledge our role in the vicious cycle of contemporary society.  Each one of us is responsible for the destructive nature of reality.  We allow our egos to transmit our anger, competition, envy, frustration and intolerance.  Even if we decide to cop an innocent plea of ignorance, it does not exonerate us from our contribution to a culture of selfishness.  No matter how much we attempt to mystify ourselves, our freedom is found in our commitment to accountability, integrity and transformation.

Awakening:

Awareness is a lonely path.  It is an intimate venture we all must discover, empower, practice and fulfill.  No other person has the insight, inspiration, passion and right to achieve what only we can for ourselves.  When we establish our true vision of who we are and how we create our life, we distinguish ourselves from the mass imposition of reality.  We see it for what it is and what it is not; a prison for the heart and soul.  Awakening to the artificial dynamics of reality creates the possibility for our soul to thrive in our life.  Our consciousness is the measure of its manifestation.

Our vision is the truest expression of our soul.”

Rise and Shine

“Fear is what happens to us when we deny our love.”

Social Distortion:

Humanity is afflicted with an inexorable disease.  It is a widespread epidemic that compromises our authenticity, ethics, integrity and sensibilities.  One of which we as a global culture have been suffering from since the dawn of our existence.  Its roots originate in our chaotic, obscure and unconscious lifestyle.  This social virus is an emotional instability, a mental phobia and inevitably becomes a physical disease.  All of us are infected.  No matter how we attempt to avoid, distract or escape ourselves, it is always there.  It thrives on our personal apathy, attachment, conflict, denial and dependence.  We are prisoners of our own fear.

Broken Foundation:

The decline of our society has accelerated. No matter what our belief, education, perception, politics or understanding, it is undeniable.  Humanity is in a perpetual state of fear.  Most of us are not aware of its full measure and impact.  We have been socially conditioned into a custom of dis-ease, disillusionment, distrust and indifference.  Cultural confusion influences all avenues of our daily experience.  From our early exposure to authority, education and religion, to the contemporary exploitation of the media, our peers and society, we are constantly overwhelmed by a blitz of aggravated anxiety.  Our fear is like water to the fish.

Feigned Obscurity:

Reality, as presented and perceived, has been distorted and manipulated to the nth degree. Its dynamics have been strategically altered beyond common understanding.  Those who pull the strings of the global puppet show make sure the design is complicated enough to prevent the majority from transforming it.  It is the energy of our own fear that sustains the reality in which we are confined.  We are not taught nor do we choose to learn ways to transcend this social prison.  Therefore, we sequester ourselves within the boundaries of our personal fear.  Reality is an artificial security that prohibits the fulfillment of our possibility.

Tapestry of Terror:

Terror sells, perhaps even more than fear or sex. It is a controversial terminology wielded by adolescent adults for the purposes of agenda, control and profit.  The impact of its implication provokes anxiety, hate, ignorance and oppression.  It is a contrived power that has altered history, law, perception and understanding.  Those who define it are often the guiltiest of practicing it.  It is a commercial, corporate, financial and political exercise to exploit the fear of nations for the manipulation of the global marketplace.  The true purpose of contemporary terror is to bewilder, distress, enrage and terrify humanity.

“The easier it is to look away, the harder it is to live with ourselves.”

The Bliss of Oblivion:

We have made it our inalienable right to be consciously unconscious. Selective reality is our common misperception.  We desensitize and acclimate ourselves to the horrors of inequality, injustice, prejudice and violence.  Social chaos, deception, destruction and trepidation have chased us into our proverbial rabbit holes.  We defend and hide ourselves from the mere threat of danger.  We settle for mere survival in the shadow of life.  Our motivation is socially distorted from fulfillment, purpose and service to amusement, escape and possession.  We savor the bliss of our self-conditioned oblivion, tethered to the vicious cycle of a virtual reality.

Imaginary Life:

We are all in a waking slumber. The monotony of society’s arduous routine has pulled reality over our eyes.  Our sedation is sustained by the multiplicity of our amusement, distraction, entitlement, obligation and responsibility.  We are culled into pedestrian roles as slaves to a complex matrix of indoctrinated education, elementary entertainment, divisive politics and idealistic religion.  Our attachment, consumerism, fear and obedience enable a ravenous social system of competition, exploitation, manipulation and obsolescence.  Everyday we voluntarily justify our part in defending and enabling an imaginary life at the cost of our freedom.

The Spark:

It happens to all of us in our own unique way. Our perception and experience shifts from our immersion in to our transcendence from social reality.  We see the illusion for what it is and become acquainted with our personal vision.  The quickening of our empowerment and enlightenment propels us into the embrace of the extraordinary.  Linear perception transforms into multi-dimensional experience.  We are thrust into expansive, new streams of consciousness.  All we have encountered and understood in our past and present is superseded by the illumination and inspiration of all possibility and purpose.  We are awakened.

Soul Signature:

Each of us has a personal power that extends beyond our experience, imagination, perception and understanding. Whether or not we are aware of this, it exists.  Our body may be a biological marvel and our mind a neurological phenomenon.  Yet, our heart is an electromagnetic force of multi-dimensionality symbiotic with our intuition and connected with our soul.  It is in our creativity that our spirit is able to manifest through our heart, mind and body.  Every person has the ability to be an expression of the universe.  Our unique vision is a vital element in the fulfillment of our purpose and the collective destiny of humanity.

“Only when we live our vision will we become our soul purpose.”

Keeping the Vision:

No matter how powerful our experience of awakening may be, seeing and knowing it is only the beginning. Enlightenment is established with our commitment to exercise a conscious lifestyle whenever an opportunity is presented.  The personal vision we receive is manifested with our creativity, devotion and intention.  In order for us to truly become this we must live it everyday, especially in the midst of great adversity.  Our vision is all that is real.  Having a vision is the birth of our possibility.  Living it transforms us and the reality in which we exist.  This is the true expression of human being.

In the Field:

The fate of the future depends on us all. There is no escape from this essential, universal truth.  The greater our resistance in claiming and embracing our personal destiny, the more grave the impact it will have on the fate of all living beings.  We are not spectators in the arena of life.  We are participants in an extraordinary experience that transcends our fear, perception and reality.  The expression of our personal engagement is the embodiment of our soul purpose.  Our commitment to the fulfillment of our life is our only true destiny.  Our personal power is realized when we choose to envision, embrace and walk our path.

Rise and Shine:

The only moment in which we will ever make a difference is now. Each of us has a dream that can become vision, intention, expression and purpose.  There is one true destiny for which we are all empowered into being.  It simply requires us to break through the boundaries of the fear we have enabled with our own anger, apathy, denial, hate and indifference.  The more we live an experience that inspires us; the more it becomes our lifestyle.  Transforming reality is not moving mountains or altering the course of the future.  It is our birthright as multi-dimensional beings.  It is our nature.  We must rise to the opportunity of our life and shine.

“The only life worth living is our own.”

“A wise person makes their own decision.  An ignorant person follows public opinion.”

– Chinese Proverb

Extra Extra…

It’s a free-for-all!  And we do enjoy the ride.  We are helplessly and hopelessly addicted to, dependent on and enslaved by all forms of media.  Be it news broadcasts, the sports industry, all things entertainment and last but not least politics (which has become the most atrocious form of amusement.)  Yet the style of media that seems to “trump” it all is the one to which we all subscribe every day of our lives.  It is the worst expression of our nature as human beings.  Gossip is the greatest destroyer of experiences, opportunities, people and possibilities.  We are the echo of a society built on arrogance, entitlement, envy, judgement and self-righteousness.

…Read All About It!

We haunt our computers in a quest to find the meaning, purpose and truth of life.  We pour over articles, interviews, social media, videos and website links to fill in the missing pieces we ourselves have vacated in our pursuit to gratify our egos instead of expressing our souls.  Countless individuals with audacity, ingenuity and vanity rush to their cameras, devices, keyboards and personal media outlets to offer their radical commentary on hot topics that are as contrived as the reality in which we are imprisoned.  We all have an obscene tendency to offer the craftiest of our intelligence to compensate for the absence of our wisdom.

Hot Off the Presses:

The line of demarcation between truth and fiction in the media has long been blurred beyond recognition.  Reality has become a lie and a lie has become our reality.  The mass manipulation of our global culture has polluted the roots of our understanding by the very information we are conditioned to believe is real.  Reality is as subjective as perception.  The nature of which has been infinitely distorted with the stratagems of advantage, control and distraction.  It is not those who govern the air, food or water supplies who rule the world.  It is those proficient in manipulating reality and our perception of it who hold absolute dominion.

If It Bleeds, It Leads:

Believe it or not, we are the primary administrators and enablers of this diabolical system of information and perception manipulation with our obsessive attention, energy and reactivity.  Our focus is forever upon the drama, trauma and tragedy of others to forget about our own downfalls, failures and tribulations.  We populate our consciousness, listening and vision with a barrage of artificial stimuli in a wanderlust of broken destinies, dreams, lives, loves, people and promises.  In the face of adversity, diversity and possibility we chase after celebrity, controversy and rumor.  We exchange our need for purpose, truth and worth with our want for self-indulgence.

Know Your Sources:

A handful of corporations own most if not all of the existing media outlets in the world.  Everyone has an angle and those with the most to lose will do anything to proliferate and protect their investment to the greatest degree.  Every major corporation devotes a phenomenal sum toward the advancement, expansion and fulfillment of its agenda. This is the foundation upon which fortunes are made and lost.  The only way to always win a game is to rig it so the other players believe they are going to win up to the moment they lose.  This is the fundamental nature of society’s information and perception manipulation.

“What we don’t know we don’t know about the media is that it is invented.”

Get a Quote:

The evolution of the quote has surpassed the origin and significance of the story.  The attention span of the human race has accelerated at an alarming rate, desensitizing us to the gravest and most scandalous of editions.  Quotes once stood as beacons of clarity, hope, inspiration, promise and truth.  Now their ambiguous diversion and political correctness has left their audiences rummaging around in the intellectual shadows for reason, sense and understanding.  All who are granted the authority and prestige to provide a quote usually do so with the intention of saying nothing while seemingly saying everything.

Cover Story:

Mainstream news broadcasts and reports are altered and/or invented to captivate our attention, fear, reaction and upset.  Media networks use chaotic and distorted electromagnetic bandwidth frequencies to distract, hypnotize and “program” their audiences.  This ensures that the information they are disseminating is transmitted and received to its optimal impact and potency.  Conventional networks will often air biased and simulated reports and feature hostile debates to divert the focus of their audiences away from the truth of every day inequalities and injustices.  We pull the wool over our own eyes when we fail to exercise our personal discernment.

Headlines and Deadlines:

The contemporary consciousness of the human race is such that it doesn’t take much to attract, captivate, maintain and stimulate its attention.  Headlines are designed to assault us from the page or computer screen by drawing upon the greatest false power ever devised.  The sharing of information in our mainstream society has gradually declined from one of genuine awareness to blatant, outright fear.  Once our interest, intelligence and possibility was sourced by a common purpose.  Now it is restricted and replaced with incorporated propaganda pushing anxiety, “dis”-ease, opposition and “terror.”  Headlines have become deadlines.

Scrolling for Ratings:

Since the invention of the running scroll on computers, devices and television screens, the attention spans and listening of audiences have been gradually altered, disrupted and distorted.  The stimulated sense of emergency and urgency subliminally traumatizes its viewers with an experience of apprehension, bewilderment, hypnosis, hysteria and vigilance.  The visual content, energetic frequency and regularity of the transmissions render the spectator’s comprehension, listening and perception vulnerable to assimilation, conditioning, influence and intimidation.  Viewership becomes a vicious cycle of existential, perceptual and social enslavement.

The Spin Factor:

Contemporary reports about events that occur around the world are profoundly adulterated, editorialized and fabricated to promote the illusion of freedom, justice, opportunity and unity.  Yet, all that is truly conveyed is its extreme antithesis.  Media outlets provide only the tip of the iceberg of available information.  What is broadcast is a corporately-crafted, agenda-driven viewpoint to program its audience into a two-dimensional experience of right and wrong, love and fear, left and right and dark and light.  Every facet of the mainstream media spins its news updates in their own interpretation to control, manipulate and modify the nature of reality.

The Source of All Sources:

In a society besieged with drama, distraction, dysfunction and division, there is only one true source that is diverse from the cacophony of human reality.  It is the eternal spring of consciousness experienced only through the transcendental nature of our intuition.  It is all possibility of everything that was, is and ever will be.  It is the multi-dimensional expression of the universe that resonates with every element of our being.  When we envision and experience what is beyond the information and perception manipulation, we become the manifestation of the source.  The truth exists in reality when we choose to personify it.

This Just In!

We will never receive authentic, balanced, comprehensive and empowering information from the current network of news sources in the world.  There is too much at stake for the few to endorse and publicize the truth to the many.  All we can do as reluctant subscribers of contemporary media is to exercise our own choices, distinctions, epiphanies and insights.  The more we inspire our own experience, vision and wisdom, the more we will be able to distinguish ourselves from societal fear, prejudice, propaganda and vanity.  The present and future of our lives has, is and will always be in our power.  Yet, it is only attained if it is willingly claimed.

“There is nothing more destructive than an illusion believed to be true.”

What is Real Beyond What is Real.

“Wake from reality, wake from your dream…”

Reality. It certainly is a subjective, seemingly flexible and very elusive element of human existence.

With all the structures, formats, programs, conditions, laws, rules and boundaries our society aggressively imposes to implement, arrest (pun intended) and almost religiously uphold and proliferate “order,” it is amazing to me how we have everything but. In an (n)ever-changing and, most would acknowledge if they were being honest, declining world, any rational and logical person would identify that nothing is rarely what it seems. The more “real” we are with our observations, the more we are able to see ”reality” for what it really is, an elaborate hoax, an illusion, a grand distraction, perhaps one of the greatest lies ever manufactured by human conception.

Upon first considering and becoming aware of this burgeoning truth, we may struggle through a great number of states of being. We may experience anxiety, hopelessness, helplessness, disbelief, disinterest, anger, frustration, upset, disappointment, confusion and collusion. We may find ourselves in a state of wrestling with two or more different beliefs in the presence of new ideologies, methodologies, perceptions, conceptions and understandings. It is in this new space of awareness, however difficult, challenging, excruciating, astounding or confronting it may be, when we are able to embrace a “new” vision beyond reality. A revelation in which we acknowledge one of the ultimate truths, there is no reality.

“…wake from the fear, that is tearing at the seems… of the world….”

“Reality,” as we are led and conditioned to accept and by which to abide, is an exquisite design constructed for the many by a small group of people around the world. People whom have the ways and means, time, arrogance, egotism, audacity, indifference, agenda, organization and false vision to manipulate, control, influence and, in numerous ways, incarcerate the many for the benefit of the few. It’s mind blowing to see how ”few” these people are, and how many their “reality” has imprisoned.

As you are reading this, you may begin to formulate an observation that what I am writing about in this paragraph could be termed as a “conspiracy theory.” In this “reality,” it is. Though, the term “conspiracy theory” was cleverly invented by the very organization of people who constructed “reality” to debunk and discredit anyone who chose to have the courage, fortitude and intention enough to question the relentless and ominous authority of reality. Yet, distinct from “reality,” there is a truth that is growing stronger and becoming more popular and evident with each minute that ticks off of the illusory clock we have been programmed to accept as ”time.” For “time” is one of the greatest illusions that “reality” uses to control and corral all whom fall prey to its insistent mechanics, gradually leading to the greatest fear initiated upon humanity, the persistent anxiety of death.

Yet, however omnipresent, all-powerful, ever-invasive and constant reality may “appear,” remembering nothing is rarely ever what it seems, this tapestry of illusion is built upon a foundation of one thing, fear.  It is this “dis-ease” of the “few” whom govern over the “many” that generates the very fear that fuels “reality.” Our freedom from reality is terrifying to this organization of people. Simply because we would no longer be enabling it to exist by surrendering our personal power through our agreement with it. We are no longer consenting to it with our false belief, apathy, disinterest and acquiescence. The illusion that reality is would cease to exist. In a way, those who are propagating “reality” are as much prisoners of their own design as those whom they target. They will never be free either. Freedom from reality is a liberty that is simply not available or afforded to us by “reality.” It never has and it never will. If we are not choosing to stand for, intend, create or cause our life, it will never be. Our life will just be a product of reality. The promise of fulfillment never achieved.

“…of the world, be the world.”

On a daily basis, we all have had moments diverse from reality, whether it is when we are sleeping, reading a book, watching a movie, making love, meditating, praying, exercising, hiking, having profound conversations with others or learning something new. When we wake up in the morning we are “fresh,” “new,” and in a way “reborn” from what we were yesterday. This is our best opportunity to break from the spell of reality. Before we begin to re-connect with our fixed thought patterns, emotional dramas and instinctual behaviors influenced and impacted upon through this common reality and carried by us like old and worn suitcases. We have a choice to create and apply an extraordinary vision to our lives distinct from the popular and imposed reality. This is our truth. We have the freedom to live outside of “reality” in our pursuit to sustain and express our truth, whatever we inspire it to be. Though it requires from and of us everything we are in everything we do with whomever we are related in everyday or our lives.

To many, this may seem an overwhelming task. The very notion of expressing our choice of will, intention and truth in everyday of our lives in everything we do may appear ultimately impossible, and downright terrifying. But it is not.  It only “seems” impossible and frightening because our faith, our hopes, our dreams, our goals, our purpose and our destiny have been confined to a finite, physical existence we experience as “reality.” We are infinite expressions of energy and consciousness. We are multi-dimensional, universal beings. We are all gateways through which the creation of all that exists flows. We are all connected to all that is and to every living being both on and beyond this world.

It begins by refusing the programming, rejecting the conditions, withdrawing our attention and compliance, removing our investment in “reality” through our acquiescence and participation, releasing our personal attachments, identifying and dismantling our insecurities and transforming our lives from being ”realistic” to being “truthful.” Once we willfully choose to practice this personal transformation daily, we begin to disconnect from the invisible chains of reality and see it for what it really is. A ruthless, malevolent vortex that feeds off the energy of our fear, claiming our lifeforce until the ”time” in our life expires.

Reality is easy to transcend when we “real”-ize that reality is an illusion and truth is all there is. And the greatest of truth will always be our love. Yet, it requires us to claim and establish our truth and sacrifice the only thing that keeps us imprisoned from ourselves.

Reality.

The Consciousness Blues

With every day that passes, it seems as though we as a society are becoming more and more aware of what is “really” going on in the world.  What I mean by, “really,” is the story behind the story when we choose to read between the lines of how current events in our society are reported on, or the lack there of.

Sure, we have the mainstream media networks broadcasting “news” stories and articles manufactured for our consumption.  Most are polished with a sheen of fear and designed to make us feel more “intelligent,” (as if intelligence has made much of a difference in our society).   Some influence us to anger and frustation, while others are tailored to distract us from the issues that truly matter, i.e. pollution, GMO foods, fracking, the quality of our drinking water, etc.

Let’s face it, we are relentlessly bombarded with information in the form of “news,” advertisements, politics, sports, drama, entertainment of all expressions and even our life itself.  Though many of these things may “seem” to us as being critical to our existence, they really aren’t as vital as our health, well-being, relations, families, contributions to our communities and fulfilling on our true purpose.  They are just presented to us in a way that we perceive them as worthy of our attention and our lives.

Thus, the distraction is born.

Yet, for all whom choose to be daring, adventurous, bold, radical, curious and inquisitive pioneers of diversity, there is the story behind the story, the “real” reality which may only be obtained with an expression of our conscious will.  I imagine it may happen differently for everyone, though the constant in the expansive birthing of our awareness is that it does indeed “happen,” and when it does, our experience of life and of ourselves is massively transformed.

When we choose to open our minds, our perspectives, our awareness, and most importantly our eyes and our ears, we begin to move beyond the inner resistance of our denial, our cognitive dissonance, our heredity and our self-righteousness.  Something amazing and miraculous happens.  It is as though we become addicted to consciousness.  We develop a hunger for truth, clarity, knowledge, understanding and wisdom.  We experience an explosive burst of energy that awakens and enlightens us all the way to the cellular level of our being and beyond.  It is this energy that not only presents evidence to the credibility of the truth, yet, it also connects us with something much greater than ourselves and the lives which we live.  It connects us with all that is.

At first the experience is much like a new romance, exciting, scary, awkward, dreamy and passionate.  Then, as it settles into the very core and fabric of our being, we begin to become present to how twisted, sadistic, maniacal, insidious, insensitive, cruel, brutal and unforgiving human beings can be, especially when witnessed with conscious eyes.  If we are fortunate enough to make it beyond our initial shock, we may discover and reveal how intricate, complicated, complex, convoluted and multi-tiered the issues and problems in our society really are.  We may even begin to see that most of the problems in the world are manufactured and maintained for the purpose of profit for the benefit of the few at the cost of the unconscious many.

We begin to immerse ourselves with articles, You Tube videos, Facebook Posts and Updates, Tweets, Websites, Online Talks, Speeches and Forums, books, random “truth” conversations with others on a similar path, etc.  Then we become present on a whole new level to the issues; GMO foods, Fracking, Flouride, Chlorine and other chemicals in our tap water, Chemtrails, vaccinations that cause the very illnesses they are supposed to protect us from, Fukishima, oil spills, the rapid destruction of the rainforests, the corruption of governments, the financial manipulation of the market place by corporations and banking institutions whom go unpunished, senseless wars claiming the lives of our youth…

Stop.
Breathe
Breathe again.
Breathe until these apparent burdens of truth and consciousness pass through you and there is only silence.
Breathe until all there is is your breath.

Breathing is the most powerful way of transforming our fear, worry, outrage, concern, frustration and anger into a proactive and productive form of practice to shift our problems into solutions.  As a matter of fact, breathing is the first step in this process.  It is fitting that this is the first step of life!

There is a challenging space we can find ourselves in in the midst of the hurricane that is “reality” when viewed with awareness, it is the “Consciousness Blues.”  The frustration, hopelessness, helplessness and despair of being present to the issues of what is “really” going on in the world, yet not knowing what to “do” about it.
We may even adopt perspectives of, “I am only one person, what can I do about all of this?” “What difference can I make?” “It’s not my responsibility.”  “It’s not my problem.”  “These things will never change.”

This isn’t a bad place to be in, though it may seem and feel like it.

As a matter of fact, congratulations, you have broken the spell of “reality.”

“Knowing” about the specifics of the issues in our society is another step, yet will never bring the solutions.

In my opinion, we, as human beings, have a duty, a birthright to “share” what information and experiences we may have on our path of expanding our consciousness, without ego, without upset, without anger and without attachment to how the information we share will be received by those whom are bold enough to listen.
It has been said before, “wherever our attention goes, energy flows,” and where our energy flows, perpetuates the existence of whatever issues, challenges, dramas and problems upon which we may become impassioned.

It is the quality of the energy that we are putting into society that is vital.  When we are frustrated, depressed, upset, hopeless and even sarcastically angry, though it seems justified, it is only more fuel on the fire.

This only contributes more to the problems than their solutions.

We have to ask ourselves the question, “are we contributing to the problems in our lives or the solutions?” The importance of our detachment from the negative reactions to the often times unbelievable issues and problems our society currently perpetuates is rivalled by little of what we may encounter in our daily lives. When we disconnect from our reactions, we are able to move beyond the melee and chaos of our contemporary world and begin to stem the tides of the growing collusion that pollutes our environments.

Perhaps one of the most difficult practices to successfully perform in transforming problems into solutions is in who we are “being.”  This is also the most important exercise in this process.  We can have the greatest of intentions and purposes in life, yet if we are being egotistical, arrogant, angry, resentful or frustrated, the transformations we desire to see will never happen.  It is only when we are able to temper our internal upsets, disappointments, outrage and self-righteousness about society’s issues will we be able to transcend the challenges we experience within which undoubtedly show up everywhere in our lives.

No matter how excruciating it can be, and it is!

When we come from a space of silence, calm, present-ness, peace, positivity, kindness, compassion, acceptance and love, we will always succeed in transforming anything in our lives.

After all, will never transform the world around us, only the world within us.

An Emanation of Truth

Under the Influence:

Our world, as we have been led to believe, is an illusion.  All of us live out our days performing the roles we have been conditioned to adopt with the belief it is for a greater cause.  Yet, this synthetic purpose serves only the few at the grave cost of the many.  Our perceptions have been manipulated over the span of our lives to hypnotize us into accepting a meager, ordinary, repressed, and selfish existence.  We measure the growth of our progression by our physical appeal, our programmed intellect and our social status, while we avoid, dismiss and discredit the essential expressions of our heart and soul.

Soul Sacrifice:

There is a massive gap between what we interpret as spirituality, religion or faith and its authentic and resourceful application into our daily lives. Many of us flock to our selected practice searching for sanctity, knowledge and the meaning of life.  We kneel in blind devotion to superficial entities feigned to exist far beyond our limited commitment, comprehension and willingness.  What we either don’t choose or don’t want to realize about our fidelity is that we are handing over our personal power to various beliefs sourced not by spirit, yet invented and exploited by man.

Global Exploitation:

Everything about the three dimensional reality in which we exist is manipulated.  From the seemingly most sacred to the utterly profane, everything we encounter in our daily occurrences has come under malevolent influence.  As atypical as genuine epiphanies are in our modern lives is as rare we discover pure and true experiences beyond the realm of mortal persuasion.  Our natures have become attuned to the energy of manipulation.  It has desensitized, diminished and destroyed our innate propensities for acceptance, compassion, understanding, wisdom and love.

Living the Lie:

The wool of our cynicism, denial, judgment, insecurity and fear has been pulled over our perceptions.  We enable exploitation to occur in our experiences simply because we are too terrified to claim and live our truth, purpose and destiny.  It isn’t just the social indoctrination we are all exposed to well before the time, if ever, we remember who we truly are.  It isn’t even the betrayal all of us suffer from those whom we believe are closest to us.  We are all eventually seduced by and compliant to the artificial belonging, meaning and principle of common reality.

“How we perceive is what we believe.”

An Affinity for Acquiescence:

Since the dawn of belief, history, legends, stories and traditions have been invented to distract us from our souls.  We have been attached to a blind faith in others more than we empower trust in ourselves.  Our dependency upon the external world has enabled an ever-expanding, internal vortex that has left us aimless, empty and unfulfilled.  We have been modified to a simulated lifestyle of attention, desire, status and survival.  It has become the very nature of our existence.  This has conditioned us to seek in others what we can only truly discover within ourselves.

Swimming Upstream:

Contemporary society is designed to function and exist against the flow of humanity.  This is why for most of the world; life is deemed as “difficult.”  The elements of apathy, challenge and distress are constantly and strategically infused into our everyday reality.  We enable this belief and lifestyle by deciding to perceive it as such instead of choosing to embrace it as a powerful opportunity to transform ourselves and make a difference.  The mere perception that life is excruciating and insurmountable provides the perfect circumstance and excuse to yield our personal power and become social slaves.

Elusive Epiphanies:

We are multi-dimensional beings with vision and potential that reaches well beyond our human experience of imagination.  We have the ability to create, express, exist and destroy.  Our potential for adaptation, endurance, relation and transformation far surpasses our inclinations to consume, think, reason or feel.  Our addictions to our personal dramas, judgments and opinions distort our discovery, focus and purpose.  We have the inherent ability to clarify, intend and manifest all that our heart and soul desires.  Yet we continue to sacrifice our opportunities at the zenith of their possibility.

“It is only as real as we believe it to be.”

Towing the Line:

For centuries, the human race has born witness to the tragic consequences of a society ruled by the wants of the few at the cost of the needs of the many.  Each of us bears the burden of this “reality.”  Most of us are not willing to be present to or engaged in the human catastrophes of global inequality, injustice and impunity.  It has become contemptible, impractical and political to identify or entertain the vital issues of our contemporary time.  Consciousness transcends the current trends of our society, though its presence and expression garners great animosity and resistance.

Turning the Tide:

Those of us committed to and empowered by truth realize standing for it always requires great sacrifice, dedication and ridicule.  When we are inspired to choose to embark on our journey for authenticity, integrity, purpose and the fulfillment of our true destiny, the whole world appears to descend upon us.  The more we live against the popular currents of present day society, not with defiance but intention; we realize that even the strongest tides shift.  The affirmations we receive when our actions, thoughts, feelings and insights make a difference are the foundation upon which our transformation is possible.

A Call to Destiny:

We each have a vital contribution in the evolution and transcendence of the human race.  Our intuitive vision, personal power and creative expression make an extraordinary difference in the way we perceive, interact and exist in society.  The composition of our reality is created in the wake of our focus, truth, purpose and love.  The extent of our expansion and transformation is defined by our commitment to express, share and sustain its presence in our daily lives.  No matter how often we have opted to defer our personal responsibility, we are entitled only to fulfill our destiny.

An Emanation of Truth:

The world will always be exploited to the degree we enable with our amusement, drama, egotism, indifference and oblivion.  The power and possibility to transcend the present condition of society has always been within us.  It is up to all of us to offer our personal contribution for its manifestation.  Each one of our unique expressions is essential and significant to the multi-dimensional experience of global transformation.  This is the fundamental dynamic of enlightenment.  It is the only choice we will ever have to make.  If we don’t choose to be a universal emanation of truth, who will?
