Beyond the Threshold

“The difference between kneeling and standing is empowerment.”

Upon Reflection

As I was writing the final paragraph of my previous article, “Written in the Stars,” I realized it may be my last.  In the years I have been publishing articles, I have rarely experienced a block, rut or a lack of inspiration.  Fortunately for me, there has always been a creative energy flow guiding my fingers.  Yet, I became present to the common, elementary level of comprehension contemporary society exhibits.  Being conscious to this dynamic was incredibly disempowering.  For fleeting moments, it challenged my passion to translate universal understanding into earthly experience.  This article is an expression of the universal empowerment sourced from breaking through the personal barriers of static perception. 

The Forest for the Trees

Recently, I had a conversation with my friend Lorenzo Malowane of “The New Agora/The New Now.”  As we both shared our experiences with publishing alternative information, I observed society is mired in a pyramid-scheme paradigm.  Another friend sent me a link to a new website that had all the “usual suspects” of metaphysics and spirituality.  Chances are you have seen them. Perhaps you have even taken their online courses, read their books, “follow” them on social media, watch their YouTube videos and attempt to practice their individual interpretations of an idyllic, spiritual lifestyle.  Enlightenment that one does not discover, explore and establish for oneself is simply a cult.

Social Paradox

For as much as we do not want to be told what to do, we eventually abandon our personal power.  Whether it is the impressions passed from our parent/relative, preacher, teacher, politician, employer, spouse, friends or associates, the hypocritical paradox of artificial, social belonging consumes our creativity.  Authoritarian entities and organizations are successful at coercing us into acquiescence, simply because they have enacted this paradigm of control, of which we enable with our participation.  They give us the illusion of free will.  Yet, we are aimlessly and helplessly reliant upon the dualistic design of social reality.  We are willing to be manipulated due to our apathy, fear, lifestyle preoccupation and absence of self-trust.

The New Paradigm

In our conversation, Lorenzo asked if I had any ideas about how to shift the common paradigm of social comprehension.  In that moment, something inspired me.  A recollection came from our last New Agora/Autodidactic interview “Communicate Your Freedom,” regarding listening being the essence of communication.  Being heard, valued, and through this experience, ultimately empowered.  In my perspective, it is not about telling people what to do. We all know how effective that practice has been throughout the course of human history!  It is about empowering others to create and manifest their own unique expression of destiny.

“We all need to express our universality into being.”

The New Era

Ten years ago, during the Winter Solstice, a universal energetic shift began.  It was the completion of a twenty-six-thousand-year cycle, and the beginning of a new era.  Since then, we have all been shifting into universal experience, whether we are present to it or not!  When the “Plandemic” occurred, (yes it was planned!) it was a multifaceted, energetic distortion and diversion to prevent the ascension and progression of our personal consciousness, which would empower us to transcend the duality of social reality and become an expression of universality.  (Read this sentence again!) The fulfillment of how the new era exists in our experience is empowered by who we choose to be.

Face the Music

We are provided infinite opportunities to face our dramas, fears, inadequacies and traumas; navigate through them, glean the benefits of the experiences, and release the rest. (Which is what we need to be doing right now!) Yet, it is much more than just acknowledging, accepting and knowing their purpose.  It is all about understanding. Once we move through them with a conscious heart and a keen intuition, our challenges only persist if we remain attached to them through our instinctual, intellectual and emotional dependencies.  Sure, we can hold on to our hurt, be right and in pain and covet our suppressed agony like our forsaken innocence.  However, as present as we are to our experience is as empowered as we are to heal.        

The Power of Empowerment

When we align our body, mind and heart with our intuition and soul, we are empowered by the universe.  Being centered, grounded and present to the source is an omnidimensional, energetic experience.  This is the true power of empowerment.  In every moment, we have the opportunity to relate with our universality.  Beyond the trivial happenstance of ordinary existence, an abundance of extraordinary experiences is ever evolving within the expression of our creativity.  (Be with this!) Shifting our focus of awareness from the constant imposition of social reality empowers us to embrace the universal with every conscious breath.  Choosing to be an expression of our soul transforms our experience.

Beyond the Threshold

All of us are on the threshold of our personal empowerment.  We have been shifting into the flow of universality for over a decade.  Our social perception cannot comprehend the transcendent insights of our universal being.  Understanding is the gateway to experience.  It is impossible to describe universality with words. This is a unique encounter for each person.  However, the commonality we all share is our relativity with our soul.  We all now stand upon our personal threshold, peering into the great mystery with curiosity, hope and wonder.  Beyond our fear of the unknown awaits the realization of our universal being.  Embrace and become the shift of its empowerment!

“Beyond the threshold of our humanity, we are all one with the universe.”

The Experience of Empowerment

“Reality is enabled by the acquiescence of our personal power.”

False Personality

There is a commonality in all our personal rackets.  Those which we expend all our effort and energy to defend with our false personalities.  What is a “false personality?”  It is likely the one reading this article.  Our false personality is the virtual projection of ourselves we present to the world.  One cleverly sculpted by our social indoctrination through our education, heredity, politics, religion and social engagement.  We all have one.  However, it is unnecessary to conceal our fears, insecurities and triviality in justification of our personal apathy, indifference and oblivion.  Unless we concede to the influence and imposition of social reality.

Human Nature

All of us believe, hear, know and see only what we want.  We don’t even seek to understand ourselves or the society in which we are imprisoned, let alone all sides of our experiences.  Our priorities are to accumulate, amuse, breed, consume, debate, intellectualize, proselytize and sleep.  This dualistic dance sends billions of empty souls to the grave long before their time.  Living in personal oblivion is the greatest vicious cycle ever enacted in the history of humanity.  Occasionally, we stir from our selective slumber to rebel against things we do not fully understand.  Yet, we rarely exhibit the devotion, focus or intention to transform them.  

The Listening We Feign

Contemporary society does not encourage authentic listening.  Most people do not genuinely hear others because they fail to heed themselves.  Therefore, they echo the commotion of social reality, carelessly engaging with instinctual and intellectual declarations of ignorance and insolence.  Perceptual filters blind and consume our awareness, condensing it into a competitive existence of psychological controversy.  We are wired into a vicious cycle of reactivity, motivated by our feigned responses of duplicity.  We do not listen because it does not sponsor the agendas and strategies our egos employ.  This is the bane of our humanity.    

The Listening We Are

Authentic listening begins with empathy, observation and silence, both within and without.  It is an internal expression of being, aligning us with the universe, empowered by our soul and inspired by our intuition.  We cannot understand listening until we hear the voice of our being beyond our unconscious emotionality, intellect and instincts.  When we give the gift of listening to ourselves and others, we are a beacon of empowerment.  Personally, this is the societal shift I anticipated over the last few years.  However, we were so obsessed with returning to the way things were, we enabled virtual social reality once again.

“Misplaced power is the plight of humanity.”

All That Was Lost

Over ten years ago, energetic shifts in the universe began to accelerate.  Those who were present to this were hopeful and inspired with the possibility of a collective progression in awareness, expression, transformation and understanding available to all.  I could feel it in many experiences on multiple dimensions.  No matter how authoritarian entities and organizations invented elaborate forms of amusement, distraction, fantasy, fear and trauma, the currents of energetic momentum in the universe were strong.  Many were becoming conscious and empowered by these shifts.  Then, the virus pandemic hijacked our curiosity, focus and intentionality for universal potentiality.

All That We Sacrifice

All of us are an infinite expression of the universe, whether we are present to or personify our multidimensionality.  It is evident society does not encourage transcendent expressions of conscious being.  Therefore, we are enslaved into the paradigm of social reality, condemned to instinct, thought and opinion.  It is much easier to pull the wool over the eyes of humanity within a controlled environment.  We have acquiesced our personal power to perceptual deception, conceding our vision, focus, intention, purpose, transformation and destiny.  We sacrificed our universal being, consciousness, expression and relativity for the amusement of artificiality. 

All That Is Found

Though it appears we wagered our universality for social simulations of belonging, convenience, conformity, fulfillment, reality and security, all is not lost! Our multidimensionality exists beyond the duality of our mind and body.  At any moment, we can choose to shift our experience with our personal empowerment.  Our heart center is the gateway to intuitive insight, inspiring us to listen and align with our soul and the universe.  Enlightenment occurs when we transcend our conditioned lifestyles of attachment, egoism, expectation and materialism.  We are universal energy, ever evolving and transforming into our unique expression of being. 

All That Is Possible

Our soul is one with the universe.  This has, is and will always be our common truth.  Where we place our focus of attention is where we intend our energy.  Often this is coerced and seized from us within the vicious cycles of social reality.  Yet, when we align with awareness and empower our experience, we reclaim our being from the endless diversions to which we yield our personal power.  It is essential we observe, differentiate, empower and transform to relate with and embody our universality.  Our greatest opportunity is to manifest our creativity as our way of life.  This is the natural progression of being.    

The Natural Progression

All of us have a unique energy, expression, purpose and destiny.  Our creativity is an embodiment of our being.  When we resonate with our soul, we flow with the natural currents of the universe.  Surviving social reality is a two-dimensional experience within a three-dimensional paradigm. It is the design of our enslavement.  Thriving is a manifestation of omnidimensional being and understanding. It empowers our freedom.  The natural progression of our universal expression requires an equilibrium of our conscious instinct, intellect, emotionality and intuition.    

Experience of Empowerment

We are programmed into maturity through our dependance on and engagement in social reality.  Constant conditioning, conformity and survival eventually prevents the manifestation of our personal destiny.  We inevitably abandon the legacy of our universality amidst the extreme societal climates of indoctrination, institutionalization and orthodoxy.  Reclaiming our personal power enlightens and synergizes our social experience.  Empowerment is the momentum of our universality.  Being in flow with its energy is our collective destiny.  Empowering our being, transforming our experience, and inspiring others to empower theirs is the expression of our universality.     

“Empowerment is the essence of conscious being.”

All About Us

Society is a reflection of how far we are from ourselves.

Social Stimulus Experiment:

The current virus spoke volumes about us and our relatedness with society.  One thing most evident is our social reaction when the world was turned upside down and inside out over an influenza strain.  Liberals turned conservative and vice versa.  Society ground to a halt.  Businesses dried up, many lost their jobs or companies.  Billions of people retreated to the confines of their homes to tune into the mounting numbers flashing across their computer and television screens.  Lockdowns were enforced as if war was eminent. In many ways it was and still is.

The optimistic angle to all of this?  The natural world was primarily relieved of humanity.  Pollution was down.  Traffic was nonexistent.  The animal kingdom was thriving.  The world was almost peaceful.  Personally, I felt it was an extraordinary opportunity for humanity to remove itself from the vicious cycles and rampant triggers of society and go within.  It was a chance for us to become related with ourselves and the universe, transcend and transform our social conditioning and programming, and empower and express our unique destiny.

Default Program

Perhaps this occurred or was happening for some.  Yet, like a computer program that encounters a virus, (be with this!) our social system was shut down and rebooted into a default mode.  Once again, we are essentially where we were in our collective evolution prior to the pandemic madness.  Society hit the ground running, rushing back to the way things were, armed with arrogance, consumerism, delusion, egocentricity, entitlement, greed, superiority, self-righteousness and violence.  The ideal cocktail for social distraction, disruption and destruction.

As mentioned in several of the articles I have published over the last few years, a universal energetic shift is occurring, giving us the opportunity to transcend the dualistic lunacy we have identified with as society.  Our ability to align with the universe by balancing our body and mind with our heart, intuition and soul is ever present.  However, this experience does not exist in the simulation of social reality.  Nor is it observed in a world enslaved by the institutions of its own amusement, education, media, politics and religion.

Privatized Priorities

Surviving society is a self-centered endeavor.  This is how it is designed, so this is how it exists.  Thriving in society is a transcendent lifestyle, empowering us to experience evolution, fulfillment, transformation and understanding.  Unfortunately, our social conditioning is so all-encompassing and extreme, we opt to merely survive in the presence of all possibility.  In our teens and into our twenties, most of us face scarcity.  This is far more influential than we choose to acknowledge.  All of us encounter a social shift that forces us into the oblivion of adulthood.

Recently, I was shopping in my home village and noticed a woman I would see frequently at the fitness center years ago.  She had been attractive and trim with a cheery attitude.  When I saw her recently, it was evident she had undergone her social shift into career, marriage and motherhood.  It suddenly occurred to me at that time, she had been primping herself into good health to attract a husband, which would lead to having children and arriving to where she is now.  When I saw her, she wore a scowl reflecting the watermark of her unfulfilled experience.    

“Our lives are only as fulfilled as we live them.”

Settle for Self

For most, personal and social life is all about compromise.  I observe and feel this in many people, family, friends, associates and strangers alike.  It is hard to witness, and even more difficult to feel.  In my youth, I recall the empowerment and inspiration many people I had known experienced.  In their unique time, these passions were wagered for social conformity, familial and peer pressure and personal survival.  Though these are seemingly justifiable reasons for social compliance, it is the “white flag” we raise every day we engage in the matrix of society.

Nightmares are not what we encounter when we sleep.  They exist for us within the comfortable codependence of familial, professional and social obligation and responsibility. Every day we live against the flow of our destiny, experience and purpose.  Our investment in life becomes a practice of negotiating and settling on a life of least resistance.  We emulate our forebears as they eventually did theirs.  Regardless of whatever fantasized self we choose to proliferate into society, it is as much of an illusion as reality.  Our settlement in life is our death sentence.

A Soul to See

Most of society does not want to see the clarity nor hear the symphony of the truth.  Most have been conditioned and programmed for decades and more into the narrow paradigms of sensual and intellectual insanity, set on a mission to draw meaning and reason from the mass chaos of society.  Billions of lifetimes cast in the mold of the “known” reality, in a vain attempt to glean the slightest glimmer of wisdom from the smoke and mirrors of the day to day.  Fortifying their defenses and reassuring their self-righteousness, while they sacrifice their soul.

We don the spectacles of reality’s kaleidoscope, believing what we encounter is “real.”  Creation and destruction, above and below, good and evil, life and death, the entirety of duality imposes its influence and inhibits our universal experience.  All these elements, however grandiose they seem, are only two-dimensional.  Transcending the prison of our inherent social perceptions frees us from the dominance of our mind and body.  Our heart is the gateway, our intuition is the path, and our soul is the origin of our empowerment, vision, expression and being.

All About Us

From the moment we are born, our existence is only about us.  For many, this is personal identity, purpose and stability.  Yet, it is also egotism, sociopathy and vanity.  Every day, billions of people con themselves, justifying their social atrocities and crimes against humanity to preserve the status quo of their beliefs, bank accounts, defenses, opinions and self-righteousness.  To many, this supersedes acceptance, authenticity, equality, honesty, justice, kindness, love and wellbeing.  Eventually, the virtues of humanity become as degrative as its sins.

Continuing to do what we have always done ensures we will only encounter more of what we already have.  We are rigid programs in the digital matrix of society, tethered to a formulaic mainframe of reactivity to constant social stimuli.  The engagement of our reaction defines our enslavement.  Therefore, our being, destiny and experience will remain forever unfulfilled.  Shifting the focus away from ourselves is a remarkable opportunity to transcend the incessant inclinations of the body and mind. And also, be present in our heart, intuition and soul. 

“To become one with our soul is to become one with the universe.”

The Mirror Tells All

“We cannot truly empathize with tragedy until it befalls us.”

Lessons Unlearned

What do we do as a society when programmed conspiracy, disinformation, manipulation and trauma infects social reality to the gravest degree?  How do we cope, heal, identify and transform ourselves amid the melee of competition, destruction, disease, fear, loss, murder, pain, suffering and violence?  Why do we continue to emulate the definition of social insanity at the cost of our lives and those of our children?  Where do we go from the helplessness and hopelessness surrounding and corrupting every element of our experience?  Who is to be held accountable for our crimes against humanity?  We are!   

Political Idiodyssey

Politics are the most worthless form of leadership ever concocted.  It is a clever, vicious cycle, ensnaring all with egotistical expressions of instinctual and intellectual ignorance.  I continue to be appalled by anyone claiming exclusivity to either the conservative or liberal parties.  It does not require keen observation to understand none of these officials care about, stand for or serve the people who elect them.  An elite, wealthy few employ financial institutions, who lend to corporations, who in turn sponsor and lobby candidates to push their (c)overt agendas.  Our awareness of this system certainly does not empower or inspire us enough to transform it.

Social Vicious Cycle

Whenever a traumatic event passes an impression on us, we tend to shift into a cycle of inauthentic empathy.  We send our thoughts and prayers, express our views, engage in social media debates, our elected officials do nothing, we eventually forget, and society moves on to the next tragedy until it happens again.  This is just one of the many vicious cycles we enact as human doings.  We are desensitized by the violence that encompasses us and blind to our individual brutality.  Yet the cycle continues.  Much like our elected officials, we do not care about, stand for or serve our fellow human.

Deep Impact

The last few years have severely traumatized us on levels we are incapable of comprehending.  We are shaken to the core from a worldwide pandemic, the political and social pressure of its vaccination, a contentious election, the impact of a murdered American citizen by a police officer and a continual string of mass killings committed by teenagers.  Within our apathetically biased interpretations of what is happening resides the true reason why.  As a society, we are egotistical, self-centered and self-righteous.  We lack the empathy, intention and understanding to transform our anger and fear into compassion and love.

“Within every downfall is an opportunity for ascension.”

The Gravity of Ego

Through the course of human history, infinite opportunities have been and are available for us to shift how social reality exists for all.  These events, however inspirational, ordinary or tragic, occur to empower us to transform our instincts, intellect, emotions and behaviors.  When we front age, belief, ideology, ignorance, indifference or loss, we convey justifiable excuses for our evasion, vengeance or violence.  The choices we make impact and influence others as much as ourselves.  There is one element of our personality that renders us apathetic, arrogant, vindictive and self-righteous.  It does not matter how aware we are to its influence; our ego enslaves us.   

Self-Sentence

Society functions on the tradition of inclusion of the immediate family, and exclusion of the rest of the world, in a vain attempt to construct artificial defenses, narratives, protection and security.  We build barriers of separation emotionally, intellectually, instinctually and spatially to support our simulated sense of safety.  The evident observation we deny or refuse to acknowledge is our desire to establish our personal illusion.  We imprison ourselves with individual internment and expect the rest of the world will follow suit.  When society does not comply with our private delusion, we encounter breakdowns resulting in emotional, mental and physical suffering.       

Social Psychoses

We are artificial beings, existing in an artificial reality, living artificial lives and even dying artificial deaths.  Our belief, ideology, information, motivation and relativity are all artificial.  From the cradle to the grave, we slip into the chaos of social reality’s undercurrent, frantically grasping for anything to release us from the energetic muck of linear duality.  When our opportunities arise and empower us to transcend, we decline, dismiss and demean all that is diverse from our behavioral, hereditary, institutional, personal and social programming.  In essence, we cause our own conflict and suffering with our conditioned engagement and reactivity. 

What Will It Take?

Our family members and friends are both figuratively and literally dying at the hands of our self-subscribed, social oblivion, and the inevitable violence it provokes.  Desensitization is the lightning rod of our synthetic sanity, tearing society apart with every tragic event and fracturing the foundation of our existence.  It is not that we feel, think and act too deeply when tragedy occurs in social reality.  The true atrocity is our willingness to be apathetic and preoccupied, evading present trauma and ensuring its eventual future. Prevention requires our authenticity, empathy, focus, integrity, intention, purpose and transformation.  

The Mirror Tells All

Imagine being in a sphere.  The entire interior is a mirror.  In every direction you gaze, your image is cast.  Yet, it is not your physical reflection you behold, it is your actions, thoughts and feelings to which you become present.  As you encounter your multidimensionality, you are aware of your instincts, intellect, emotions, intuition and soul.  You are introduced to your consciousness, creativity, empathy, insight, understanding and truth.  In this space, you experience the flow of universal being, conscience, expression and relativity.  The existence of social reality vanishes. You become one with the universe.    

“Our soul purpose is being universality.”

The Consequence of Consciousness

“We are an imitation of our original being.”

The Art of Deprogramming

Our choices, experiences, identities and perceptions are hacked well before we become aware.  Some may opt to debunk this observation, defending their virtual enslavement instead of being with its truth.  It is our conditioning that defines the selective reality we adopt, enabling our self-gratification and establishing our artificial freedom.  None of us are immune to these social influences.  Our assimilation into the digital matrix is inevitable. Until we observe our individual captivity, experience our personal universality and transform the dynamics of our being, we will always be victims of duality. 

The Dream Life

We are born, grow up, go to school, church, onto university, find a career, date, get married, buy a house and a car or two, have children, take vacations, mark time, retire, decline into old age and die.  This is the probable future for humanity.  It is our common fate. An obligatory rite of passage to sustain a system of authority, control, influence and societal slavery.  Our unbridled ego becomes our weapon, impelling us to live isolated from our soul and the universe.  We have allowed ourselves to be programmed, proudly bearing the badge of social reality in the bliss of its oblivion.  We measure our lives by the accumulation of materiality instead of the fulfillment of our universality.       

A Perfect Crime

Social reality is a construct of co-dependency, breeding simulations of advancement, conformity, programming, reliance and triviality.  We surrender our personal power to authoritarian organizations for fear of being accountable and honest.  Elitist oppressors exploit our deficiencies against us.  We amuse, distract and preoccupy ourselves with avoidance, cynicism, indifference and resignation, fortifying our personal prison.  This racket is more insidious than any autocratic system in society.  It is our self-induced captivity that sentences us to social reality.  

The “Woke” Epidemic

In this new era of awareness, it is easy to be manipulated by the influential tides of false consciousness. Society is littered with the kaleidoscopic pantheon of contemporary “wokeness.”  Reactive instinct, interpretive intellectualism and volatile emotionality enables and establishes our artificial lifestyle and understanding.  Mass emulation triggers our vicious cycles of emotional, perceptual and sensual fantasy.  Many of us mistake intelligence with awareness when we allow society to highjack our personal truth.  Our unique expression is not found from without.  It is sourced only from within.

“Our soul is the cost for defying our consciousness.”

Cornerstone of Truth

Each of us has a destiny to become an expression of universal energy, originating from the synthesis of our soul with the universe.  The source of our being resonates with our intuition, empowers our heart center and inspires our mind and body.  It transforms our experience, perception and understanding.  Our truth is not established with our belief, education, ideology, knowledge, politics or religion.  It transcends all social mechanisms, manifesting in our way of being.  The universe is unbiased in nature, expressing itself through us when we choose to transcend social reality. 

Water to the Fish    

Our indoctrination into the “reality” of life is absolute.  No matter how aware we perceive ourselves to be with our instinct, intellect and emotion, the social bubbles we build are the barriers of our captivity.  Our oblivion is the invisible gravity we sense, confining us into a three-dimensional construct of existence.  We acquiesce our personal power as a daily practice to avoid the shocking truth.  We would rather be enslaved in a simulation than pioneer the path to our destiny.  Even to the degree we defend the egocentric honor of our intelligence, pride and self-righteousness, dismissing every opportunity to experience freedom of being.

A Solitary Way

When I became present to my personal truth, I realized how lonely it can be.  At first, I envisioned it through a filter of my ego.  Eventually, I shifted my experience with service to community.  This is greater than who I believe myself to be.  I grew accustomed to accepting myself for who I was and who I was not, and extended others the same courtesy.  Releasing my attachment to outcomes empowered me to embrace all I was, am and would become.  There is an extraordinary freedom in being ourselves and honoring others in theirs.  Being related with our soul and the universe is our destined purpose.

An Essential Choice

In this new era of empowered being, the choice most of us avoid every day of our lives is now a necessity.  Consciousness is always available to us.  Choosing anything but awareness is proving to have dire consequences.  Whether it relates to our personal experience, evolution, freedom, health and quality of life.  Social reality distorts and destroys our relationship with our soul and the universe.  Understanding this dynamic is our focus to enrich and empower our relations with others, yet most importantly with ourselves.  Consciousness is universal energy that transforms oblivion into being. 

Consciousness and Consequence

In my early twenties, I was arrogant and ignorant.  I perceived the universe as a vast, empty space of darkness.  This was symbolic of how I lived at the time.  I was a social vortex of ego, satiating myself in every possible way.  Social reality anesthetizes us to the impacts of our personal oblivion. For every unconscious endeavor there is a consequence to our universality. When I observed my experience with an equilibrium of my senses, thoughts, feelings and intuition, I began having insights that related me with my soul.  Our soul is our expression of universal consciousness, transforming the experience of life for all.

“The consequence of consciousness is universal being.”

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.”

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.

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.

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.”
