Are We Experienced?

“Perception is the deceiver of experience.”

A Fleeting Glimpse

We believe, hear and see only what we desire.  It is human entitlement to gratify our wants instead of satisfy our needs.  Life is perceived through a filter of our selective reality.  Therefore, we are merely surviving instead of thriving.  It is impossible to fulfill our experience when we build a personal fortress of imaginary interpretation, perception and understanding around us.  We rarely “experience” life, we simply surrender to the constant oppression of social reality.  For example, we react with oblivion instead of proact with creation.  The distinction between perception and experience is consciousness.      

The Perception Deception

The proverbial wool is pulled over our eyes well before we begin to develop our personal acumen for diverse and transcendent understanding.  Institutional “intelligence” via education, media, politics and religion processes our experience into perceptual duality.  Entertainment, economics, information, social media, sports and world events enable the common illusion we all accept and apply.  Our minds are preoccupied with authoritarian programming, while we congratulate ourselves for our social mimicry and reiteration.  We deceive ourselves with virtuality to avoid being with the truth.  We allow ourselves to be conditioned as projections of artificial intelligence.    

Once Upon a Time

Social reality is a fairy tale written by royalty and sustained by peasants.  This is an excruciating observation and realization.  When I became aware of its actors, storyline and endgame, I was angry, apathetic, hopeless and resigned.  As I awakened, I became empowered and inspired by the possibility reality’s antiquated plot could be transformed.  However, I realized the greatest obstruction to this transformation was my own social conditioning and programmed perception.  There are billions of emulations of interpretation enslaving humanity into the digital matrix of reality.  Within its paradigm, we are captive to our ego, oblivion and self-righteousness.

The Silent Surrender

Perception is developed when what is without becomes who is within.  This is the imposition of social reality.  Most of us inevitably acquiesce to dysfunctional behaviors, habits, impulses and thoughts because we are not empowered or inspired to fulfill our personal destiny.  Well before adolescence, we are lured away from who we truly are and may become.  We submit to and establish our ego as the core of our identity.  As we engage and integrate with the simulation of society, we give all our possibility and power to our ego. This severs our relations with our soul and the universe. 

“Perception is what we adopt.  Experience is how we create.”

Origin of Experience

One of my most innovative introductions into experience was when I took hallucinogens in High School.  It expanded my vision, creativity, expression, perception and understanding in ways I would have never imagined.  I remember returning from these extraordinary journeys wondering why so many people chose to define and perceive themselves within the narrow parameters of reality.  It opened a doorway to my experience with “universality;” the multidimensionality of being relating us with everything that ever was, is and will be.  Though I have not partaken since, I acknowledge and appreciate the benefits they inspired in my awareness, creativity, expression, imagination and relativity.   

Beyond the Rainbow

When I was 18, I had an encounter that transformed my vision from perception to experience. (Ref. the article “A History of Mystery.”)  For over 30 years, I have continued to have these extraordinary, multidimensional journeys.  Some are amazing and enlightening, some dangerous and terrifying, while others are cryptic and profound.  These experiences gradually shifted my perception, eventually empowering my existence, insight and understanding.  The intention and practice of personal observation allows us to transcend our enslavement to duality.  Beyond our reflection is the focal point of our awareness and the origin of our consciousness.

From Empowerment to Energy

Social reality does not empower or inspire us.  It takes all we are willing to give, refining it into a dense energy to sustain the artificiality of society.  We are eager to accept this as “reality” because we dismiss and neglect our common destiny of creative expression.  When we choose to observe, envision, focus and intend our unique purpose, we receive an abundance of energy from the universe.  As we exercise our legacy of being, we connect and relate with its flow.  Eventually, we occupy this space within ourselves, becoming the expression of our soul.   

Symmetry of Experience

Occasionally, we have epiphanies and insights to kindle our authenticity, creativity, possibility and transformation.  It is not our perceptions; it is our experiences that inspire us to relate and resonate with our being.  The universe empowers vision upon our soul, expressing it through our intuition and heart center, into our mind and body.  This exchange happens more often than we consciously acknowledge.  However, the primal desires of our thoughts and senses distort and manipulate them into perceptions.  Experiencing them to the fullest involves the alignment and balance of our body, mind and heart with our intuition, soul and the universe.

The Dawn of Being

For centuries, we have exalted and prided ourselves on human doing instead of human being.  The daily watermark of our worth is valued by monetary prosperity.  Being has become “spiritualized.” (Ref. the article “Spiritualized: The Ego of Spirituality.”)  It intrigues us.  Yet, when it comes to fulfilling a daily intention, we often preoccupy ourselves with mindless and heartless endeavors.  We are in an extraordinary era of enlightenment, evolution and transcendence. One humanity has never encountered.  This dawn of being is an opportunity to transform our focus from the perceptions we emulate to the experiences we become.

“Experience is our relativity with being.”

Inside Out

“Self-righteousness is the epitome of being wrong.”

Against the Current

Over the last few years, we have been inundated with personal opinions and mainstream media agendas, narratives, politics, virus strains and vaccinations.  Yet, we have also been in a universal energetic shift providing us an extraordinary opportunity to align, connect, relate and become one with all.  For some, this was a clear choice.  For many, it was a defining moment on how tethered to social reality, and distant people are with themselves.  The autocratic strategy worked once again.  We turned against each other; our ego our sword and our self-righteousness our shield.  How clever we are to destroy far more often than we create in our quest for status and validity.  Nothing represents our power more than arrogance.

Social Crucible

Conceit and deceit are the most toxic elements in contemporary society.  We all have duplicity. Those who don’t believe they do have more than most! Events of the last couple years have transpired for the purpose of revealing our concealed deficiencies we all disguise from ourselves and others.  We either defend our personal issues or release them and become fulfilled.  Recently, I have witnessed family and friends blame, guilt and shame each other to satiate their fears, insecurities and uncertainties regarding the current climate of social reality.  Lifetime relations willingly sacrificed in defense of their biased criticism, judgement, opinion and self-righteousness.  All to protect their inadequacies, from which we all yearn to be free.

Throwing Shade

The last two years have not been a time to merely survive, they have been an era to thrive. While we attempted to bring normality to the authoritarian agendas of control, deception, enslavement and manipulation, our greatest fears embedded their influence deeper into our frazzled nerves. No matter how we analyze, believe, interpret or think about the events we have all endured, our understanding of them is often misinterpreted.  We feed our senses with biased, agenda-laden information, customized to our desired narrative to debate, demean, discredit and prove our adversaries erroneous.  This is the societal psychosis we have enabled with our apathy, denial, negligence, oblivion and self-righteousness.  

Being Right

Before our acumen is developed, we are conditioned to be right at all costs.  This is the social standard.  We close the avenues of our listening when we stake the lines of our hypocrisy.  This applies to others, yet most importantly in our relation to ourselves and the universe.  We are blinded by our addiction to the rush of synthetic gratification we receive when we impose our sanctimonies, be they internal or expressed.  They are the idioms of our inauthenticity; in other words, “false power.”  Society prospers on the adrenaline of superficiality.  Those who express empowerment and inspiration are often chastised, exiled and, in extreme circumstances, murdered.  Our personal and collective evolution is wagered for our egocentric quest to be right.       

“Institutional intelligence is programmed ignorance.”

The Greatest Swindle Ever Sold

Six global corporations own the world’s media sources.  It is apparent these outlets broadcast programmed information, thus inventing and promoting narratives to manipulate society’s existence, experience and perception.  The mainstream media proliferates corporate, economic, political and social propaganda to execute and maintain its agendas for control, power and profit.  To awakened individuals, the endgame is evident.  Unfortunately, most of humanity invests in the engineered narratives because we are unable and/or unwilling to accept the truth.  The network information we analyze, believe, interpret or think is manufactured delusion.  Humanity craves to be right and refuses to admit when they are swindled.  How true has this been over the last few years?  

One Ego to Rule Them All

Our egos are neurological satellites, constantly receiving and projecting signals within us and ultimately influencing society.  We are mired in the duality of our programmed instinct and intellect; therefore, reality exists and is enabled by our collective oblivion.  The global authoritarian banks, corporations, governments and other elite organizations are aware of this.  They use fear to its fullest efficacy to maintain control, power and wealth over the majority of the world’s population.  Their imposed systems of rule amuse, confuse, disempower and enslave society into an elaborate web of deception.  Our ego keeps us captive, engaged and tethered to a social simulation we identify, interpret and accept as reality.

The Naked Truth

We are not who we believe ourselves to be.  We drift in the darkness of self-subscribed obscurity, terrified to discover, express and live our truth against the scrutiny of a cruel and violent society.  Eventually, we all acquiesce to the collective fate of inauthentic belonging, reality and social obligation.  Adulthood is a superficial security we “mature” into rife with excuses, failures, inadequacies, oblivion, struggle and surrender.  No matter how much we attempt to make something out of the illusion of social reality, we are inevitably burdened with the gravity of our wasted opportunities to create, empower, inspire and transform.  The naked truth we all seek to evade is that we live to die, instead of dying to live.  

Seeing the Unseen

We are victims, servants of all we do not know that we do not know about ourselves.  This statement can be confusing to those unaware of fundamental ontology (the nature of being.)  All we know and do not know is often clear.  It is what we do not know about what we do not know where we lose our vision, focus, intention and power.  It controls us through our personal indoctrination.  Institutional education, economics, religion and society programs us to enable our cooperative enslavement.  Yet, our personal observation, consciousness, progression and purpose empowers our freedom.  These are the essential elements of our being, inspiring our awareness, evolution and transformation.         

Balance Beam

The last few years have revealed how essential it is to establish and maintain our personal equilibrium.  Existing in a social reality built and sustained by conflict, disease, duality, toxicity and war has compromised the core of our being.  It is not a surprise how many people do not know who they are, let alone envision, experience and fulfill their destiny.  We are multidimensional beings composed of instincts, intellect, emotions and insights.  Our existence is created by who we are being.  The balance of our body, mind, and heart with our intuition and soul is vital to manifesting the universal energetic shift into our experience.  Our attuned equilibrium is an expression of our resonance with the universe.

Inside Out

We have all experienced extreme anxiety, fear, loss and trauma.  Many of us are still nursing proverbial wounds that have never fully healed, current ones notwithstanding. Opportunities arise for us when we choose to lay down our fears, failures, histories, obligations, pain, self-righteousness and suffering to embrace everything available to us during this extraordinary era of being.  Once we have committed to release all which does not enlighten, inspire and transform us, we can begin to heal.  We are all fractured beings drifting upon the ocean of time, seeking an elusive fulfillment.  Society imposes it’s will, conditioning us to survive from the outside in.  Our universality empowers our soul to thrive from the inside out.                           

“Feel to heal, be to see.”

Down to Earth

“We are present only when we are grounded.”

Social Influence

We are not taught how to have the greatest experience of life, or even how to optimally live.  We are conditioned through the institutions of education, entertainment, genetics, politics, religion and society.  Engagement in social reality overshadows the empowerment of the universe.  Spirituality, intuition and enlightened emotion and intelligence are all extracurricular activities, chosen by the few yet abandoned by the many. 

Within the egocentric, social parameters of accumulation, achievement, advancement, security and status, all things universal are forsaken, even our very souls.  All of us have infinite opportunities throughout the course of our lives to create our unique path.  When the direction of our course in life drifts one degree from its center, we eventually find ourselves arriving many miles removed from our intended destination. This is when social reality hacks our experience. 

The Bane of Banality

For those who have read the articles I post, it is evident I am not a fan of social reality.  I am mainly inspired by creativity, community, consciousness, empowerment, evolution, imagination, multidimensionality and transformation.  In my observation, these are the foundations of universal experience.  I choose my words wisely when representing the universality I aspire to embody. However, they pale in comparison to the essence I attempt to articulate. 

It is not just the phrases and terms assembled to express what it is I experience.  It is the energy between the lines that encourage diverse levels of understanding.  One that has taken me decades of personal evolution, observation and transformation.  I do not perceive myself as “enlightened.”  When we interpret ourselves in this light, we often wager our vision, intention, purpose and destiny for artificial power, recognition, self-righteousness, significance and vanity.

Binary Being

Transposing the universal into the terrestrial for the sake of application, manifestation and transformation is my intention in translating the omnidimensional into the literal.  This is my purpose.  It is evident we live in a three-dimensional construct, existing as two-dimensional beings.  What does this mean?  Our reality is a domain with three dimensions, length, width and depth.  This is how animate and inanimate objects appear to us as “real.” 

As human beings we experience our lives through two dimensions of interpretation, our instincts and intellect.  Yes, we all have emotions, and occasionally we have intuitive epiphanies and insights.  However, our mind and body hold the reigns of our being.  As we experience our lives through these filters, we are enslaved into duality.  Therefore, conflict and division rages between us.  Yet, the battle and distance within us is far more hostile and vast.      

Eye of the Beholder

Our experiences are defined by our perception.  However simplistic this may seem; we make it more complex.  Our perspective often lacks three essentials: discernment, evolution and observation.  When we observe our experience, it is an expression of consciousness.  When we practice distinction, we create a transcendent vision, progression and understanding.  This elevates our perception and empowers the evolution of our being. 

These practices cultivate our transformation.  However, experience is greater than perception.  Our perspective is simply a filter.  Our senses have been socially distorted, highjacked and manipulated for the purpose of diversion, preoccupation and oppression.  The triviality of society is in stark contrast to the embodiment of our soul.  It is the social beast we feed with our fear and engagement. If this is not evident in current events, then we are in conflict, denial or oblivion.

“Evading our soul is a crime against humanity.”

Know Thyself

We exist in the vacuum of a virtual reality transpiring as a tragic fantasy.  We are more engaged in interacting superficially in our relations with others, we have neglected our relativity with ourselves.  Most of us don’t even know ourselves.  Who we believe ourselves to be is almost entirely dependent on how we are perceived by others.  Our inner criticism, judgement and reticence traumatizes us to the point of non-existence.

We are shadows of who we are destined to be.  The truth is, we are the cause of our unfulfilled experiences.  Our obsession with amusement, distraction and information is our avoidance of being present to our personal dilemmas and social crises.  Whether it is our career, family, politics, religion or social life, we often evade authentic belonging to sustain artificial, conditional relations.  This is most evident in how we conceal and defend our personal deficiencies.   

Up on the Downstroke

We are all now challenged in ways we have never experienced.  We have been driven well beyond the boundaries of our conditioned tolerance.  Most of us are overwhelmed with despair, depression, isolation and sadness.  It is one thing to be aware of the impacts these social elements impose. It is another matter entirely to observe their effects, focus our attention, shift our intention and expression and transform our experience. 

We must transition from programmed causality to create something new amidst the antiquated patterns of our personal captivity.  The common design of reality is one of enslavement, no matter what the nature of our engagement.  In essence, we are anesthetized, desensitized and traumatized into the quandary of human existence, it is as water to the fish.  In essence, we are unable to see the personal prison to which we sentence ourselves. Our social conditioning has condemned us to a life of death.

Circle of Life

We tend to believe the burden of personal and social transformation is solely on our shoulders.  Yet, the more we stand to hold a space for others to evolve and transcend, the greater energy we generate to empower the circle of life.  Breaking the chains of our conditions, entitlement, expectations, judgement, insecurities and self-righteousness inspires the awareness and freedom necessary to manifest our personal and mutual destiny.

We are all related.  What happens to one of us impacts all.  Not being our true self inhibits our unique expression. Our greatest opportunity is to create, empower and transform how experience exists for all.  This shifts our social inclination from personal greed to community need. Understanding and practicing acceptance, empathy, encouragement, listening and sponsorship is our collective rite of passage.  It is a declaration of our commitment to make a difference.

Ground Zero

However spiritual we perceive ourselves to be, it is futile unless we apply, express, intend and manifest it into our experience.  As impossible as it may seem to transform reality with our chosen practice, the fullest expression of its empowerment is best established collectively.  Personally, I challenge the objectives of all who proclaim, wield and weaponize their spirituality in the wake of our present global circumstances. 

As difficult as it may seem to intimate with our personal and social encounters, grounding ourselves into our experience is the only way we will transform.  Beyond the fantasies we invent to escape the harsh reality in which we exist is our opportunity to inspire universality for all.  Our observation, focus, balance and intention empower our potential to relate with others and ourselves.  Experience becomes wisdom when we bring the universe down to earth. 

“Experience is the gravity of grounded existence.”

The Art of Equilibrium

“We are diamonds with infinite facets of existence.”

Mortal Metamorphosis:

At birth, our soul transitions from the source of all creation, embodying elemental and planetary properties before manifesting as an embryo.  What is occurring in the universe in these moments has significance to who, how, why and what we are to become.  The sequence of events leading to our arrival is unique on a soul level, as we choose the progression of our terrestrial evolution.  This metamorphosis is so powerful, we often fail to retain any recollection of our experience.  Our everyday collective conditioning further obscures our universal understanding, as does the absence of universality in social reality.  In essence, our being is diminished and enslaved energetically, intuitively and emotionally for assimilation into an instinctual and intellectual existence.    

Solar Origins:

For thirty years, I have had multidimensional experiences.  When I was younger, I participated in a ceremony that activated a powerful, soul memory.  I recalled moving through a glass corridor surrounded in light.  I realized I was on the surface of the Sun.  I observed its solar flares and winds dancing like waves on the ocean.  At the end of the passage, I crossed a threshold into an octangular-sided room.  It was darker than the corridor yet illuminated with flames moving through its wood walls like the blaze of a campfire.  On the far side, an upended tree’s roots flared out encompassing half the room.  I was guided to climb into the center of the tree and lay down on an altar.  Soon after, I returned to my body and realized this experience was a universal recall of my soul’s journey to earth.

The Greatest Deception:

Nothing is as it seems.  Most of what we believe, know, think and do is perceived through our filters of instinct and intellect.  Therefore, we do not create, we merely react to recurring events, situations and outcomes.  Our existence is confiscated from us long before we have an awareness or comprehension of its universal potentiality.  In essence, we live in an artificial reality invented to serve an invisible authority with the sole purpose of enabling our enslavement.  Society prohibits and restricts emotion, intuition and spirituality.  It takes the greatest elements of our personal power and weaponizes it against us, making all that is sacred sacrilege and all that is profane revered.  We instinctually and intellectually engage and exist in a virtual program, tethering ourselves to social reality.  

Tapestry of Trauma:

Our lives are riddled with suffering.  We associate this with our conditions, leading us to apathy, despair and remorse.  We disempower ourselves with the mere threat of pain, building personal bubbles to defend our programmed beliefs, fears and insecurities.  This is our strategy to avoid the agony of experiencing our chronic negligence and resistance to evolve.  It seems much easier to sacrifice our personal power upon the digital altar of society. When we choose to exercise self-observation, the realization of our self-deception is infinitely more traumatizing.  We believe our survival from suffering is a badge of honor we carry with distinction and pride, perceiving ourselves as better, stronger and wiser than others.  This is the delusion we endorse to evade our pain.  We employ duplicity to conceal our deficiencies from the world and ourselves.  

“Our pain is a reminder of our purpose.”

Opportunity for Awareness:

We are all programs integrated into a holographic projection, existing in the matrix of social reality.  We accept this paradigm because we neglect to sever our tether from its imposition and influence.  It is all we experience of life.  Our acquiescence is established, justified and satiated on a daily basis.  Every day, we awaken and accept a simulated dream enabled by our compliance, engagement and fear.  Every day, we relinquish our personal power to an external force, as we gather a meager existence within reality’s virtual parameters in our desire for self-gratification.  Again and again and again…ad infinitum.  This is the “dream” we live more often than we care to admit.  We are the key to the evolution and freedom we deny ourselves every time we pass on our opportunity for consciousness.   

The Forest for the Trees:

We are multidimensional beings of energy, yet we have achieved a fraction of our potentiality.  In the space of all possibility, we opt to exclusively personify ourselves in our mind and body.  Though we perceive this as attainment, our encounters with instinct and intellect are superficial.  We all have a choice to be proactive or reactive.  Proactive people create, empower and transform their experience to enrich their lives and those of others.  Reactive people often avoid, defer and procrastinate until their circumstances elicit rash decisions, leaving them disempowered and victimized.  Destiny is created by vision, focus, intention and purpose.  Fate occurs when we refuse to choose, wagering our transformation for our defenses, fears and self-righteousness.  Establishing and expressing our personal power is the vital distinction between surviving and thriving.    

Yin and Yang:

We are unbalanced.  Men are predominately male and women primarily female.  Yet, we have both masculine and feminine qualities.  Society conditions us to be one or the other.  This causes gender conflicts within us and ultimately in society.  Men may mistake their femininity as homosexuality, gravitating towards aggression, insensitivity and violence to compensate.  While women may embrace masculinity at the expense of their femininity to compete and excel in a patriarchal society.  We have been conditioned to repress the alternative virtues of our gender for fear of defamation, embarrassment and ridicule.  This has divided our being and our relations.  Gender equality begins within.  Observing and embracing our diverse natures offers us the opportunity to create our balance and transform how relativity exists for all. 

Consciousness Rising:

One of the greatest societal deceptions imposed upon us is the belief we are human beings.  We are all souls manifesting ourselves with our intuition, heart, mind and body.  How we exist in social reality is defined by who we choose to be.  Most dwell in the dense, energetic vibrations of instinct and intellect.  However, now more than ever, a rising tide of conscious beings are emerging from the simulation, whose sheer presence compromises its agenda, control and influence.  Many are caught in the social crossfire, taking up arms against their family members, friends and acquaintances to protect their duplicity.  For all who choose to experience universality by balancing their soul with their intuition, heart, mind and body, it is beyond the choice.  It is our realization of who we are destined to be.

The Boundary of Being:

Twenty-Five years ago, I was staying with family in Northern Michigan.  I drifted off and instantly found myself standing on a threshold.  It was a massive, vertical wall of living energy.  I was in between the realm of social reality and something beyond imagination.  Curiosity inspired me to move through the barrier, and I lost consciousness of this realm.  Years later, I received an insight.  There is a boundary of being related to the Earth’s electro magnetosphere.  When we cross it, everything of this world disappears.  When we return to this reality, we fail to recall who we become and where we travel.  We are omnidimensional beings existing in numerous realms.  Our ability to journey beyond the boundaries of existence is empowered and sustained by our personal equilibrium. 

The Art of Equilibrium:

We are in a new era of being.  One encouraging us to observe our vision, hone our focus, establish our balance, express our intention, embody our purpose and create our experience.  Our lives are a labor of love, inspired by our originality, relativity and truth.  Our exodus from the simulation of social reality into the progression of universal being is omnipresent.  We are in the shift of experiencing the synergy of our creation.  Everything familiar, known, thought or understood stands to negate this evolution.  The equilibrium we empower, enhance and establish expresses our universality.  It is our signature, the unique impression we inspire within ourselves and others.  When we are in the flow or our experience, the resonance of our energy is the declaration and manifestation of our being.

“Omnidimensionality is our universal destiny.”

The New Era

“Awareness begins with the choice to be conscious.”

In the Shift:

As mentioned before in previous articles, we are in an extraordinary, universal energetic shift.  There has never been one more essential or significant.  Since before the Winter Solstice 2020, ascension, awareness, empowerment, inspiration, transformation and transcendence are available in remarkable abundance.  All it requires is for us to be present to our instincts, intellect, emotions, intuition, soul and the universe.  This is a choice we must make.  Before, it may have appeared optional.  Now, it is vital to fully experience our lives.  We can acquiesce and engage in the seductive influence of social reality and its material splendor, or we can awaken from and break the spell we all have been under to acknowledge, embrace, express and manifest our experience.

Sleepless Slumber:

Our life is a dream.  Nothing more, nothing less.  In fact, many of us have never awoken.  We stumble in the darkness of society reacting to circumstances and situations with the dire hope we break ahead.  This is the fundamental dynamic of reality.  Living from external motivations of lack, want and survival.  Our peripheral lives are rooted in a linear perception, constantly seeking self-value in the people around us.  When we fail to find our worth from others, we encounter instinctual, intellectual and emotional breakdowns, instantaneously severing our relativity with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe.  We engage in social reality, perceiving it as the path of least resistance.  Yet, it diminishes our potential to create, establish, express, manifest and sustain our personal truth.

Hook, Line and Sinker:

There are many devices of social entrapment.  Religion separates us from our soul.  Politics divide and disempower.  Advertisements program us to consume.  Entertainment lulls us into escapism and fantasy.  Sporting events spark us into a competitive fever pitch of triumph and tragedy.  All forms of media pander fear to condition our perception of the world.  The medical industry promotes illness and dependance on chemicals and continual care.  Laws are established by white collar criminals to protect their illegal activities, sentencing society to its own apathy, confusion, ignorance and oblivion.  While authoritarian regimes reign with a ruthless, global military state, wherein the people are manipulated to police each other.  All these social influences serve to imprison us in our mind and body.    

Breaking the Chains:

Extracting ourselves from social reality can be an excruciating and terrifying experience.  There are many ways to free ourselves from all that arises to steal our consciousness.  Our focus, attention, awareness, energy and expression are vital to transforming our experience.  Whatever ritual we choose, what is most important is our alignment, equilibrium and relativity with the universe.  We must create, empower, inspire and sustain our unique purpose, while being aware of the billions of social influences we may encounter.  We are the weakest link in the chain of artificial society.  Meaning, only we can break the bonds of our engagement.  Simply shifting our attention from the peripheral with our inner observation and intention breaks the chains of our social incarceration.

“An eon of enslavement has ended; an era of empowerment has begun.”

The Rise of Universality:

We are a soul having a human experience.  Yet, we have been deceived into believing we are a human being having a spiritual encounter.  The focus of our common existence has been distorted and manipulated, tethering us to our instincts and intellect.  We are all multidimensional beings of energy expressing ourselves with our intuition, heart, mind and body.  Balancing the domains of our being to align with our soul is our universality, our relativity with the universe.  Though it has been available to us from birth, it is most accessible and present than ever before.  Universality is an eternal and infinite force, the source of all creativity, empowerment, imagination, inspiration, transformation and transcendence.  Humanity stands upon the threshold.  All we need do is walk through the door.

Rite of Passage:

Initiation is the cornerstone of all organizations, be they charitable, collegiate, corporate, political, religious or spiritual.  It is an introduction to an ideology, with the intention of enriching our lifestyle.  However, this too has been strategically highjacked to impose indoctrination into singular methodologies of organized propaganda.  Each of us must acknowledge and navigate our personal rite of passage to align with the universe and become its expression within social reality.  There are over seven billion unique rituals of experience existing around the world.  When we discover one we are inspired to walk, an extraordinary exchange of energy resonates through our intuition, heart, mind and body.  This equilibrium in our being is an affirmation we are in alignment with our soul and the universe.

The Grand Progression:

All who have chosen their unique path are in an accelerated evolution of conscious being.  Possibility and potentiality are always present.  Instant creation, expression and manifestation is happening all around us.  This, in and of itself, can spin us off our center.  We are all entering a powerful, transformative era of experiential existence.  From Winter Solstice 2021 to Spring Equinox 2022, the influence of social reality will intensify to prevent the Grand Progression of our energetic consciousness.  All who are engaged and invested in social reality will seek to control, distort, manipulate and obstruct humanity from achieving its collective destiny.  Yet, it is not the authoritarian forces who are holding us hostage.  It is our own apathy, control, fear and insecurity. 

Focus, Ground, Center and Balance:

Social environments activate our anxiety, chaos, escapism and pain.  We are victims of our circumstances, conditioning and programming.  Our acquiescence to social reality is our greatest self-oppression.  Being swept away by its tumultuous tides is an epidemic of global proportion.  We are constantly in an energetic hurricane, necessitating us to ground ourselves and step into its eye.  Our freedom is found within.  Our energy goes where our attention flows.  Amidst the melee, we must identify and establish our being by focusing our conscious intent.  Tuning the resonance of our energy empowers us to center ourselves as we navigate the perils of social reality.  Our equilibrium is the alchemy of our being. Establishing our balance with the universe in the present empowers our own. 

Creative Relativity:

What we think we know is immaterial.  What we believe we understand is even more irrelevant.  Our arrogance, entitlement, expectation and self-righteousness are what inhibits the evolution of our being.  The more we cling to the known aspects of our existence, the more we sacrifice our opportunity to shift with universal energy.  Relativity as familiarity confines us into a paradigm of antiquated obsolescence.  Relativity with the flow of creativity aligns us with the universe.  Who we are being in the present is our essential experience.  Our balanced being is a lightning rod carrying the resonance of the Grand Progression.  As we attune to this energy, we manifest its shift into social reality.  Releasing all we have established as our identity empowers our universality.

The New Era:

Beyond the threshold of all we know, abides all we feel, intuit and experience.  Instinct, intellect and reactive emotion has no bearing in the universe.  Therefore, it is nearly impossible to align with it while existing in a three-dimensional construct with a two-dimensional understanding.  We cannot experience universality through the lens of social reality.  This causes a paradox which annihilates our fulfillment.  We must be committed and willing to let go of everything around us, even ourselves, to embrace transcendence of being.  We are all creators of our experience.  We all have the personal power to align, focus, ground, center and balance our being.  We need only open our vision, set our intention, create our purpose, flow with the Grand Progression and be an expression of the universe.

Universal Flow:

All of us have a unique purpose only we can express.  It is our covenant with life.  When we commit to our destiny, it synergizes our relativity with the universe.  Given the status of society, it is evident we are not fulfilling our vow.  Universality is present whenever we are in alignment within ourselves.  This empowers us to express it into our social environment.  It inspires us to accelerate and elevate our energy.  Though we exist in a chaotic and destructive, virtual reality, universal energy is always present in every moment.  Our stream of consciousness is sourced from our soul, through our intuition and into our heart, mind and body.  It is a multidimensional experience empowering every element of our being.  Universality is the energy of the new era.  We are the instruments of its music.

 “Being is the new era of enlightenment.”

“Spiritualized” The Ego of Spirituality

“Ego is the destroyer of the soul.”

Dysfunction Junction:

We all have personal agendas, conflicts, crises, egos, faults and strategies.  We all have afflictions and conditions which impair our perceptions, senses, instincts, thoughts and feelings.  This is the daily reality we all accept, adopt and navigate in our experiences.  Some of us nurture practices to keep ourselves balanced, conscious, present and transformed, while some of us front oblivion to deny, dismiss, deflect and project our inner challenges and deficiencies upon others.  This happens in all communities.  The ego transmits a dense, low-vibrational energy not only impacting the people engaging in deception, yet also the spiritual community with which they pray and relate. 

Observational Hazards:

For half of my life, I have participated in spiritual communities.  I learned and earned a degree of focus, consciousness, effort, energy, intention and prayer to manage my own ego, agendas, challenges, deficiencies, instincts, thoughts and feelings detrimental to my experience.  It is clear to all whom have chosen to walk a spiritual path, there is a necessity to practice observation, awareness, accountability, integrity and transformation.  For me, it is a commitment of holding a space for all to have their experience, and the choice to make a positive difference in the lives of all their relations.  Unfortunately for some, the “ego of spirituality” establishes a schism between perception and experience. 

Best of Intentions:

When our experience begins, we are mystified by the energy and power of spirituality.  As human beings, we are prone to heap our belief, hope, energy and lives onto the mystery.  It seems much easier to fully sacrifice ourselves upon the altar of blind faith, than delve into the rotten soil of our personal challenges and deficiencies which brought us to it.  As our awareness of our soul and the universe evolves, our ego grows in tandem.  Most of us decide to abandon observation of our ego, giving it as much power over us than whatever spiritual relation we believe we are cultivating.  We instinctively collapse the voice we interpret as spirit with our ego.  We listen more to this inner voice than the universe because it tells us what we “want” to hear, never what we “need” to hear. 

Identity of Importance:

When the ego takes root in our experience, a desire to be acknowledged and significant arises.  As we deepen our spirituality, inevitably we crave importance.  Our personal experiences often require the validation of others to exhibit them as being more meaningful and powerful.  This is “artificial power,” which negates whatever sincere effort and energy we are investing.  It is contrary to our evolution when we fall into virtual spirituality.  All the focus, intention, energy, adversity, challenge and pain our experience may bring, offered intentionally and obliviously to our ego in pursuit of false power and importance.  Therefore, our spirituality fails.  However, it is not the tradition we practice which falters.  It is our spiritual superiority which empowers our ego. 

“Vulnerability is the greatest strength we can express.”

Trail of Tears:

All of us have personal woundedness.  We have been hurt by circumstances and others, yet primarily by ourselves.  Our suffering is self-inflicted, whether we choose to believe, observe or claim it.  We conceal and covet our pain and insecurity because we believe our ego when it tells us it is weakness.  We repress our deficiencies in desperation and present a “brave face” to our community, while we break down with every spiritual step we take.  As we stumble down our path, our anger, anxiety, doubt and fear rise to be released from our experience.  When this occurs, we have three options.  1. We continue to deny and repress its existence.  2. We project it upon others as their responsibility, thus deflecting our own.  3. We choose to be with and manage our own issues and eventually resolve them. 

Self Alone:

Spirituality is not about “our” experience.  This is a selfish fantasy we devise to appease our ego and sustain our artificial power, ultimately limiting our conscious evolution.  The cornerstone of our commitment to the traditions we walk is our service to the people in our communities and beyond.  Occasionally, I have observed people step into spiritual experiences for the sole purpose of receiving something for themselves alone.  This has been and is heartbreaking for me to witness, all their potential for making a difference, wagered for control, ego and importance.  The most disturbing reality in this dynamic; most have little awareness of the impacts it has on them, and none it has on others.      

Power Play:

Many who step into a spiritual experience often have deficiencies or lack personal power.  When they see others who are developing and expressing their own, they too yearn to establish theirs.  Yet, their ego emphasizes their neglected anger, anxiety, fear, insecurity, pain and woundedness.  Out of their desire, desperation, entitlement and self-righteousness, they aim to steal power from others to fabricate their own.  They use other people’s reactions to their behavior to distort and manipulate experience and perception.  When they are exposed, they present themselves as victims of the circumstance they have caused, using their drama, trauma and tears as a weapon to divert the attention from themselves onto others to achieve their agenda.   

Divisive Intentions:

One of the primary expressions of “artificial power” in spiritual communities happens when the “spiritualized” attempt to divide and conquer.  They invent narratives about others, most often leaders, to distort and manipulate perception, compromising the image, role and trust leaders have earned with their communities.  Once the seeds of speculation are planted, the provocateurs enroll others in their orchestrated plots, gathering numbers and imposing their agendas.  They initiate division between members of the community to efficiently control information and outcomes.  Essentially, it is a hostile takeover predicated by their belief they are better than the people who are given roles of responsibility.   

Spiritualized”:

For years, I have attempted to identify the behaviors of people who use spirituality as a strategy to bolster their ego, execute their agenda and obtain power.  The term that best classifies this behavior is “spiritualized.”  By definition, “someone who perceives themselves to be spiritually superior to others, using ageism, experience, history and self-righteousness to prove and impose their spiritual status and worth.”  Being “spiritualized” is a social psychosis and metaphysical stigma running rampant throughout most if not all domains of spirituality.  Yet it is not only the actions, words or behaviors of “spiritualized” individuals, it is the malicious intent in the name of spirituality which invokes the greatest harm, influence and devastation.

For the Benefit of All:

Some may be offended when reading this article.  Some may believe what is written does not apply to them.  Whether my observations about the ego of spirituality empowers, inspires, enrages, irritates or simply does not move the needle of recognition is telling.  Whatever reaction we choose in response to these observations is a clarification of our willingness to acknowledge and accept we ALL have egos.  Like it or not, its influence DOES impact our spiritual experience and those of others.  Understanding this gives us all the opportunity to shift our focus and energy away from our ego and align with our soul.  If we are going to give all of ourselves for our spiritual experience, it needs to be for the benefit of all.   

Believer Beware:

Practicing tradition is a powerful experience.  It is a humbling opportunity often mistaken as an attainment of individual advancement.  When we charge into our spirituality with agenda, ego, entitlement and expectation, it will become destructive to us and others in ways we cannot begin to imagine.  However, when we step into our experience with consciousness, humility and prayer, it empowers our lives and those of others.  “Spiritualized” people do not like to be told what to do, and often tend to alter traditions, feign understanding or even make them up to suit their agenda.  After all my experiences, one insight I would share with those at the crossroads of their soul; be present to your ego and its influence, or you will never have a spiritual experience.                   

“Unity is the soul of community.”

An Ear to Hear

“The greatest expression of presence is listening.”

On Deaf Ears:

We listen primarily to articulate our response.  This is essential to acknowledge.  Our social conditioning does not inspire an awareness for quality relativity.  Our impatience and intolerance are reflective of the dysfunctional personas we conceal from others in our quest to present an image of sanity in a sociopathic society.  The expanding vortex of contemporary reality consumes our consciousness, creativity, evolution, imagination and sensibility, rendering us unable to empower and sustain our listening.  When we are not present to this, our ego takes advantage of our imbalanced being.  Ignorance is bliss, until we pay the price for our selective interpretation and self-righteousness with personal and social oblivion.

Reality-Colored Vision:

Our perspective is inundated with perceptual filters.  We see the world as it seems, rarely as it is.  Throughout the course of our life experiences, we adopt, adapt, embrace and express inherent personal and social, static lenses, hindering our enlightenment.  Over time, we enable our selective viewpoints, casting ourselves into a narrow awareness of experience.  Eventually, we impose our limited perceptions upon others to defend our self-induced coma of anxiety, fear, insecurity and prejudice.  These personal rackets award us the arrogance to claim artificial power and flex it whenever our fixed perspectives are challenged.  This compounds the illusions we weave, eventually becoming our reality.

Barely Audible:

Our relatedness is distorted and manipulated as much as our reality.  We cannot relate when our language is as lethargic as our listening.  The fullest potential of conscious listening is the equilibrium between our instincts, intellect, feelings and intuition.  However, social reality is rife with toxic impulses, thoughts and emotions.  These have become the avenues of our agendas, at the cost of our hearts and souls.  We are desensitized to how we sacrifice our experience, building our bank accounts, establishing our status and bolstering our egos.  Superficiality destroys the possibility of transforming our social conversations from individual greed to community need.  Every day we disempower ourselves deeper into denial.

The Fragility of Consciousness:

Our instinctual, intellectual and emotional reactivity overpowers our awareness.  We allow other people, social circumstances and environments to compromise our consciousness before it has the opportunity to evolve.  Whether the fate of our transcendence is accidental or intentional, it all begins with the quality of our listening.  If we were aware of the insight, transformation and wisdom available when we and those we speak with felt heard, we would chase after experiences to cultivate conscious listening.  The frailty of our listening reflects the fragility of our consciousness.  All we may become is sacrificed for all we may control.  As we abandon our awareness, we diminish our ability to hear and be heard.

“Listening is the currency of being.”

Acute Observation:

When we choose to see how communication and listening does or does not exist in contemporary society, we need only turn to the internet, radio and television.  Understanding 90% of what we observe in the media is corporate, political and religious editorial gives us insight into how we can choose to draw vital distinctions.  Personal truth will never be found in the annals of education, heredity, politics, religion and alternative, mainstream and social media.  No matter how true broadcasts may seem when pandered to our platform and position, they are dangerous transmissions resulting in historically catastrophic outcomes.  Keen observation is the primary practice in distinguishing distorted facts from intuitive vision.

Distant Avenues:

We are not related.  We believe we are.  Yet, vast distances exist between us through social concoctions of fear, insecurity, selective interpretation, and deficiencies in acceptance, authenticity, empathy, trust and understanding.  We consciously and obliviously sustain societal separation.  All of this is simply a facet of our personal isolation.  The deepest impact is the well being of our relationship with ourselves and ultimately our soul.  We have an active connection with our instinct and intellect, though our relatedness with our heart and intuition is abandoned by our conditioned addiction to sense reality.  When we are not related with others or even ourselves, we are not aligned with our soul and the universe.    

Heart Resonance:

As we listen with our egos, we miss so much of what exists for others, and what occurs for us in theirs.  We rarely, if ever, venture outside of our own experience of listening.  Our narcissistic tendencies narrow our frequency of being, much as our mind can diminish our perception.  Every conversation we have has potential for multidimensionality.  The gateway to universal relativity is acceptance, empathy, support and understanding.  In expressing this, we also benefit from the experience.  We all emanate an energetic signature.  When we maintain the equilibrium of our instinct, intellect, emotion and intuition, the resonance between us expands, expressing universality.

Universal Relativity:

Our being is multidimensional.  All which cannot be perceived by most is easily dismissed into non-existence.  Hence the oblivion we all inevitably adopt.  Understanding we are a soul with intuitive, emotional, intellectual and instinctual expressions helps us to embrace the necessity of our personal equilibrium.  Without it, we will never fulfill relativity with the universe, ourselves or others.  We may believe we have decent relations with our family and friends, yet beyond the social bubbles we tolerate, we do not experience ourselves.  Therefore, we do not relate with our soul and the universe.  Universal relativity transpires when we chose to express authentic listening as our primary intention with all our relations.

Between the Lines:

I am a musical artist in addition to an author of articles.  My creative process is an experiential, multidimensional environment, a sacred space the universe holds for me as a representative for all possibility in being my expression.  The moment I intend to bring universality into three-dimensional reality, the eternal and infinite energy of the universe is inevitably diminished from its ever-expansive nature to a singular, static medium.  Society’s perceptual tendency toward duality furthers the waning impression of creativity.  For me, it is not the musical notes or words I choose.  It is the universal energy inspiring them to empower their expression.         

Relations of Power:

There is a vital distinction to be made when listening.  For many, expressing it is an act of tolerance, “allowing” another to speak, all the while collecting notes to curry our response.  Authentic listening gives people with whom we relate the experience of being heard, empowering their relatedness with acknowledgment, appreciation and acceptance.  We may not agree with the viewpoints of others, though it does not mean we need to devalue, diminish and dismiss their voice when it is in contrast with ours.  Being heard is a power we can share with all.  When we give others our listening with the empowerment of being heard, we are extending equal courtesy to ourselves, thus becoming an expression of universal relativity. 

“Listening is offering others the experience of being heard.”

The Greatest Conspiracy

“Social reality is the exploitation of life.”

Anatomy of Realism:

I am not a conspiracy theorist, at least I do not consider myself one.  Though I find it interesting how the common theorem behind its existence is scientific and critically psychological in contemporary society.  Decades ago, the term “conspiracy theory” was concocted by the very authoritarian organizations attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of the world for the sake of maintaining advantage, control, power and profit.  Be they in the domains of banking, business, defense, entertainment, government, finance, media, politics or religion.  Those who choose not to acknowledge relativity between these social control structures and current controversial events are simply not paying attention or are afraid and unwilling to accept the truth.

Selective Reality:

Unbeknownst to us, the institutions of parental guidance, education, media, peers, politics, religion and society program us from infancy to adopt, believe, engage, promote and execute a sinister global agenda.  Suppressing, discrediting and abolishing our creativity, consciousness, evolution, imagination, power, transcendence and transformation.  We are desensitized by our contribution to this devious, hostile and vicious social stratagem.  Our condemnation, defamation, fear, hate, judgement, prejudice and shaming of others with alternate viewpoints has intensified in the last few years.  It is the artificial power we flex at the world when our selective reality is compromised.

Lords of Illusion:

For centuries, governments have distorted, withheld and revised historical events under the guise of “national security” in the “best interest of the people.”  Again, this should not come as a surprise to anyone, dependent on how one chooses to perceive the daily onslaught of propaganda and rhetoric we all receive from mainstream and social media.  The potential for truth wanes when most are eagerly willing to sacrifice their exceptionality and personal power under the gravity of peer pressure and ridicule when expressing indifference with the “official narratives.”  Yet, these structures of control persist as we enable, engage and sustain it with our blind and obedient loyalty to social slavery glorified as freedom.

Web of Deception:

Wealthy global families use Centralized Banks, who in turn use International Banks, who use National Banks (see a theme?), who operate in the global marketplace as Corporate Banks funding Global Corporations to invest in lobbyists, to buy politicians, to introduce laws and protect their enterprises, futures and profits.  They use the armed and special forces to protect themselves from the people.  The caveat for these families is the necessity for the people they are attempting to enslave to adopt and invest in this global pyramid scheme for its optimal success.  What purpose does it serve to know all of this?  The rate of our social consumption enables this system to benefit the few at the cost of the many.

“Just because we do not believe in something, does not mean it does not exist.”

Mind Games:

How we interpret events and people is inherently biased.  The many filters we adopt and enable make it impossible to see things as they truly are.  Our individual realities are predominately instinctual and intellectual.  This is the design of society.  We receive and process information with our instincts and thoughts, establishing our perception and understanding with a fraction of our being.  This is how we surrender our personal power.  In the process, we suppress our feeling and insight, thus distorting and weakening the alignment of our intuition with our soul and the universe.  We become so invested in social reality, we defend and promote it more than we empower and manifest our soul’s unique purpose and destiny. 

The Psychosis of Debunking:

Discrediting alternative viewpoints has become an artform for many. Millions go online to debunk just about anything with a surplus of “sources” to defend their beliefs and perspectives.  Yet, this practice is not an expression of our instinctual and intellectual prowess.  It is more an imposition of our rampant egos and our voracious appetites for self-righteousness.  Given most of us have harsh opinions of ourselves, it feeds the socially charged, instinctual, intellectual and emotional vicious cycles to which we subscribe.  The profound reasoning for our quest to disprove truth is really our fears and insecurities emerging when our adopted lifestyle and perception is challenged.  For most of us, our egos dominate our being in our desire to feign artificial power.

Revisionist Perception:

We see only what we want, rarely what we need.  Our internal and environmental dynamics are riddled with acquiescence, cowardice, doubt and fear.  We are not born this way.  We are conditioned to emulate society’s impression and influence.  Our capacity for consciousness diminishes while we mature into adulthood.  As we are assimilated, our personal power is syphoned from us through our reactivity to social events.  The greatest hurdles in the “human race” are our anxiety, denial, resistance, self-righteousness and skepticism.  We believe only what we think is best for us, all while abandoning our personal power at every opportunity.  We adapt our perception to appease our fear.

Bursting the Bubble:

Social reality segregates us into limited domains of existence.  Our family, friends and colleagues occasionally occupy this obligatory relation we maintain. Yet even this relativity engenders exclusivity.  Beyond this familial bubble we build with our actions, decisions and fears, we have little to no awareness, connection, empathy or understanding.  We honestly do not care about the world outside of our self-induced borders.  We say we do, and at times we are inclined to become instinctually, intellectually or emotionally triggered into engagement, though our moments of epiphany and empathy pass.  Authentic relatedness is not about personal advantage, comfort, convenience or tolerance.  It is an opportunity to emerge from history to discover and embrace mystery.

The Art of Listening:

Recently, I participated in The New Agora’s “The New Now” online round table, moderated by Lorenzo Malowane, discussing men’s roles in contemporary times.  One of the many insights I experienced from the conversation is the foundation of possibility listening provides.  There was an energetic flow as everyone expressed their perspective and vision.  This is one of many key insights absent in society.  I have observed in either fluent or intense environments, once I offer listening without agenda, attachment and control, it instantly shifts the dynamic.  There are occasions to speak, yet many more opportunities to listen.  This vital practice empowers our transcendence beyond the duality of right and wrong, transforming our experience.

The Greatest Conspiracy:

The truth about conspiracy is we secretly believe because we feel the resonance of truth, we simply fear the social impact, ridicule and scrutiny.  We are a conspiracy theory of ourselves, chasing artificial power by focusing our attention on the peripheral and overlooking the true reality.  Our life, in relation to who we truly are, is a living delusion.  It is the con we run on ourselves.  We project a deceptive image to sustain our greatest conspiracy.  We are a lie we tell ourselves and others to escape our truth.  Every time we feel motivated to expose someone or something because it challenges the illusion we have designed to defend our belief, ego and fear, we should begin by observing ourselves as the only conspiracy theory worth debunking.

“In every conspiracy there is a seed of truth.”

Who Is Iam Saums?

“I am no one, and I am everyone…”

Originality:

My given name is William Howard Post.  That’s what the birth certificate says.  I was named after my Paternal and Maternal Grandfathers William Post and Howard Saums.  When I first began studying in The Fourth Way School, my fellow students began calling me Iam, which is the last 3 letters of my first name.  I would later discover the name Iam has Celtic origins, in relation with my Paternal and Maternal Grandmother’s lineages, Francis O’Day and Ruth O’Laverty.  In honor of my Grandfather Howard Saums, an inspirational and remarkable man to many in his community, “Iam Saums” is the name I chose to publish articles.

The Spark:

More than a decade ago, I began to observe the covert, intricate and influential nuances occurring in global society, primarily in the banking, corporate, medical, political and religious arenas.  I became present to an elusive network of secret, authoritarian organizations imposing an agenda to control the nations of the world, which angered, frustrated and eventually empowered me to capture my personal insights and observations via writing.  I would send them to select friends who I felt may be open to reading them.  One of them was author Elva Thompson.  Her experienced observations, passion and understanding inspired me to clarify, focus and express my own.  Elva’s encouragement and her intent to make a difference in this world helped to empower the genesis of Iam Saums.

Source Archives:

Every day I meditate twice, once in the morning and again in the afternoon.  I have been meditating for over 20 years in the Jain Tradition, the same Mahatma Gandhi embraced.  I have also participated in Lakota Ceremony for almost 20 years.  Over the last 2 decades I have experienced how these practices have empowered my awareness, creativity, intuition and transformation. This balance creates a foundation of focus, centering and grounding of my being to become an expression of the universe.  I chose this opportunity through creativity to manifest this energy and transform myself and my experience.  The content I am inspired to write and the energy beyond the words is greatly sourced by the universe.  

Creative Dynamics:

We are all multidimensional beings composed of a body, mind, heart, intuition and soul.  Yet, humanity primarily exists in the duality of instinct and intellect.  This is how social reality is designed and imposed, thus preventing us from relating with our heart, soul and the universe.  Our collective universality was fractured and lost ages ago during a great energetic schism.  Identifying, establishing and sustaining our balance with the multi-dimensionalilty of our being inspires us to relate with our soul and be a creative expression of the universe.  For each of us, it is both unique and vital.  Not only for our destiny, yet also for how we make the greatest difference by empowering each other with who we are being.

“I am a declaration of being.”

Vision and Observation:

Everything in this world is created from energy, insight, intention and expression.  In this new era, we have an extraordinary opportunity to become balanced, present, related and aligned with the universe.  Our focus on creativity, consciousness, experience and transformation nurtures the possibility and manifestation of our purpose, beginning with our vision and observation.  We are conditioned to be solely invested in our individual lives, unable to transcend the rampant duality of social reality.  Inevitably, we succumb to its tides and give our power away to anyone and anything willing to take it from us.  It is in this vicious cycle we sacrifice our lives to chase the dangling carrot constantly luring us toward the proverbial cliff of ordinary existence.

In Transition:

Now more than ever, we are shifting progressively into the embrace of a powerful, personal and collective destiny, if we choose.  Many are racing to return to the way things were before the world went sideways, oblivious to the universal potentialities available to all.  In the Spring of 2020, I was empowered and inspired by the possibility of a global awakening to shift us into universal being.  Yet recently, I am confronted with the disappointing reality many are choosing to strengthen their familial bubble and the illusion of normalcy in this era of transcendence.  This was and is still heartbreaking for me to this day. Though I choose to focus on universal vision, energy and possibility, I am at times overwhelmed by our forsaken potential for collective ascension.

The Truth of Reality:

Social reality is a weapon used against humanity to control, divide, influence and gain profit and power.  No matter how intelligent or wise we believe ourselves to be, this is the truth of reality.  We can deny, debate, protest and refute all we want, it does not alter the programmed conditioning of society. For decades, I have observed reality as an engineered, authoritarian system to enslave humanity into an illusion of choice, democracy, enterprise and freedom.  Distorting and syphoning our attention, energy and power while using our own fear of personal accountability, authenticity, integrity and vulnerability against us.  Social reality is a vortex of oblivion consuming our awareness, life force and possibility.        

The Reality of Truth:

There are over seven billion truths in the world.  Of course, they all fail to exist in our oppressive and imposing environment.  The reality of truth cannot be established with congregational education, politics, religion or spirituality.  It requires each of us to envision, focus, create, intend, express and manifest our truth with every breath.  Our personal truth cannot live in others, as their individual truth will not exist in ours.  It is a very intimate and private experience we share with the universe.  A sacred covenant and union we consciously choose long before we are born.  It is an incredibly challenging and lonely path to walk.  Yet, the enlightenment, fulfillment and transformation we create and experience is momentous, eternal and infinite.

As It Shall Be:

To be honest, I have no clue who Iam Saums is.  As with the many facets of each of our personalities, one that is fixed is unable to evolve, progress or transform.  I choose to believe my literary endeavors are shared experiences between my personal expression and the universe. At least this is my vision.  Perhaps I am guided by something greater, to be simply a current of energy in the vast ocean of universal consciousness.  Then again, what I am inspired to write has become and is my personal truth.  One that may resonate with others, yet nonetheless, my unique dance with the universe.  Establishing our truth empowers us to listen, express and thrive.  I have never been attached to what I write and how it may be received when published.  Only the possibility the words I am guided to convey may illuminate and inspire our collective experience, so we all become who we are destined to be.

“I am who the universe expresses.”

On a Personal Note

“Why would we want it the way it was, it wasn’t working anyway.”

Social Shakedown:

Beginning in March 2020 the world was shutdown.  Rolling lockdowns, restrictions, social distancing and masks littered society with the promise of protection, blended with heavy doses of fear and propaganda.  Even social perception was compromised; altered and manipulated toward an apparent intention for safety, yet rife with undeniable political and social agendas emerging from the unknown.  Years ago, I learned that whenever global events occur such as the pandemic, there is always more going on under the surface of reality than we choose to see or become informed.  Given the common attention span often struggles to sustain awareness, it always takes time for nefarious things to be revealed, even as they go widely unseen.    

Catch a Breath:

Upon reflection, my daily life did not change much over the last year and a half.  I still went to work, to the store, out of town for events and family visits, gathered with community, played music, wrote articles and stayed in touch with people in my life.  I did appreciate the lack of traffic on the roads and trails, at the shops and even in the streets.  There was a calm and peace in the world that happened overnight.  For those fleeting weeks, society was taking a breath, as was nature.  Something began to break the surface through the back and forth of the medical industry, mainstream media and the political arena.  In the wake of dis-, mis-, lack and no information, I felt a shift happening in the world.  Consciousness was growing within the madness of social reality.     

Stand and Create:

It became apparent to me global transformation was possible, and, to some extent, occurring.  The current events had captivated the collective attention of humanity.  This excited and inspired me.  The era some of us were envisioning, intending and expressing for years was happening.  Personal empowerment came to me as a rush of creativity, energy and imagination.  I started writing music again.  My writing style matured and shifted in a new direction.  My meditations and practices were all engaging, powerful and fulfilling, providing me with a new balance, experience, insight and perception into what is possible.  While much of the world was impacted and influenced by anxiety, fear, illness and uncertainty, I stood my conscious ground.     

Truth and Transmission:

As Spring turned into Summer, the energy in society grew more chaotic, intense and unstable.  The pensive calm and quiet turned into viral surges, gun violence, racial profiling and murder, social uprising and the US’s favorite pastime, politics.  Being aware of social conditioning in all forms, and having found the eye in humanity’s recent hurricane, I found myself remarkably balanced, centered, focused and grounded.  There were times when I observed and even engaged in the melee, yet soon found my breath, stepped out of the fracas and reset my connection with the universe.  This became a vital practice whenever my equilibrium was challenged.  It is in the stillness of the present we clarify and establish our truth.

“There are over seven billion truths in the world, and one gigantic lie.”

Electoral Fire:

The Summer passed and the US Election took center stage with all its pomp and circumstance. The ass and the elephant temporarily replaced the focus from the pandemic, setting the masses ablaze.  Suddenly, the flames of anxiety and fear from the virus shifted into politics. One side touted an arrogant and self-righteous attention monger.  The other side dusted off an aging, yet experienced politician who had a questionable backstory of his own.  I do not choose to engage in the political process simply because it is a racket.  A clever and deceptive system designed to disempower the masses, encouraging a timeless exorcism of the people’s power under the false pretense their choice in the political arena makes a difference. 

Ebb and Flow:

The election passed, apart from the childish tantrums of its loser.  The virus charts and numbers rose and receded like an inconvenient tide.  In many ways we were all separated from each other, though pre-virus comparisons would reveal we always had been.  I pressed onward through the melee of social reality, bearing my personal creativity, empowerment, meditation, prayer and transformation as a guiding light against the mounting, simulated darkness.  All the while enjoying the adventure, discovery and opportunity of my experience in an unparalleled, universal energetic shift.  Yet, for every powerful wave of enlightenment empowering our consciousness, the social undercurrents of anxiety and fear aimed to yank us back into reality.

Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back:

In my life, I have become accustomed to standing for my belief and truth with willful abandon.  This last year and a half have challenged my acceptance, tolerance and understanding of others in the wake of intensifying social criticism, judgement, opinion and prejudice.  Caught somewhere between self-defense and disbelief, I shook my head and smiled my way through it.  As often as possible, I express an immense empathy for humanity and society.  I choose to believe we all have the potential to observe ourselves from within and transform our way of being to the best of our ability in the spirit of making a difference.  Yet, fear is a social vortex devouring possibility at every turn. 

Jab and Weave:

Through Winter and into Spring, I rode the social waves of ease and malaise.  After a while, the pangs of emergency and urgency of the pandemic began to dull.  The social focus was instinctively turning to the old-world pastimes of amusement, entertainment, politics and sports.  Those beating the drum of anxiety were still thumping away on the nerve strings of society in a last-ditch effort to captivate all with their antiquated spell.  The heated debate between the vaxxed and the unvaxxed expired.  All who took the jab appeared to move on with their lives and all who declined followed suit.  Inevitably, most are eager to forget this last agonizing year and a half, replacing its bitter memory with the pastime of their fancy.

Beyond the Choice:

Now, we move into Summer with earnest hopes to leave it all behind, anxiety, chaos, fear, illness, inequality, isolation, lockdowns, loss, lunacy and uncertainty.  What remains are the ashes and embers of the world before everything went sideways.  An extraordinary, universal energetic shift continues, regardless of the mundane, social regression ebbing in tandem with the flow of our ever-evolving consciousness.  These last 18 months have been an affirmation of the power of our choice to either be taken under by the receding tide of social reality or ride the waves of enlightenment and transcendence into the embrace of our destiny.  Beyond this choice is our opportunity to manifest our universal being.  Seems quite simple to me.

“There is no way back, only forward…”
