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.”

What Will It Take?

“Reality is a virus.”

Gone Viral:

When the pandemic began, one of my relatives asked me if I was surprised at how many were affected.  I responded, “not at all.”  After their further inquiry, I made the comment, “most people’s financial wealth is a greater priority for them than their personal health.”  Sad but true.  I have realized we are collectively conditioned, exploited and integrated into social reality.  Inevitably, we are diverted away from important experiences like our consciousness, creativity, personal destiny, empathy, love, listening and relatedness.  Social reality is a deception of perception.  I would claim most of society is caught in its simulation, never to be freed.

Living in Oblivion:

Billions of people around the world eagerly accept, adopt and indoctrinate themselves into numerous popular social systems designed for congregational enslavement.  Empty structures for belonging and relating deliver fruitless and tiresome experiences, with little to no personal or communal enlightenment or empowerment.  Institutional consumption, education, politics and religion have made us heartless and soulless, condemning us to a virtual reality.  We are inundated with constant stimuli to preoccupy our instincts, minds and base senses at the cost of our emotional, intuitive and spiritual fulfillment.  Human oblivion has annihilated our capacity and possibility for awareness, intention, expression and transformation.   

Digital Infamy:

Our ego’s appetite for attention, control, influence, power and wealth has enabled the artificial reality in which we exist.  Damned be the animal, mineral and natural worlds in the wake of our contemporary, technological revolutions.  Our addiction to the spotlight has far exceeded the watermarks of our predecessors, flooding the mainstream with a reckless abandon for social media.  Fame is measured by the viral nature of humanity’s selfish and superficial promotion and propaganda.  It is not a coincidence that an infectious virus has spread like wildfire over the masses, while we eagerly impose our individual agendas to climb the ladder of social exposure and popularity. 

Reversal of Power:

Our viral behaviors, inclinations and actions have altered reality.  Within the three-dimensional dynamic of the positive, negative and neutral forces of nature and the universe, we have inadvertently accentuated our darkest tendencies.  As a civilization, we have been manipulated into believing generating personal power is a competition in the pursuit of individual success at the devastating cost of rampant, social failure.  Orthodox conditioning programs us to sustain selfish survival as our ultimate achievement.  This adopted lifestyle and perception is a collective psychosis, consuming all potential for creativity, community, empowerment, enlightenment and transformation. 

“Personal power is an intimate, solitary and unique experience.”

The Best of Intentions:

Few of us would choose to be the villain in society’s antiquated story.  Yet, most of us have played the role many times over.  What is most dangerous to the balance of social dynamics is our denial or oblivion to the part we perform.  We are not a conscious race, let alone courteous, empathetic or encouraging.  Like it or not, we are cruel, egocentric fiends hellbent on destruction far more often than creation.  No matter how hard we attempt to express ourselves with the best intentions, our contrarian outcomes speak for themselves.  Whatever sense of achievement we can glean from our chaotic experiences is as empty as our hearts have become.  Now, something new and remarkable is transforming within us.

Awareness Rising:

Collective community and consciousness is growing.  Whether the focus is on positive or negative events, it is happening.  More people are awakening from the slumber of social reality, becoming present beyond what they see, hear, feel and sense.  An energetic shift is transpiring on a multi-dimensional level of being, providing us with an extraordinary opportunity to transcend social reality and align with our heart, soul and the universe.  My question is, “what other option is there?”  Continue down the apparent path of least resistance, tethering ourselves to archaic, social enslavement for superficial achievement, belonging, and wealth?  This is it! The era we have been eagerly awaiting has come!

Higher Ground:

For centuries, people have sought clarity, insight, transformation and vision by journeying below the earth’s surface or on hills and mountains.  These experiences are an exodus from all things reality to connect with something transcendent from self.  Most fast from food and water, placing themselves at the mercy of nature.  This kind of experience has been and is available to us since March 2020 when humanity took a left turn, giving us the opportunity to step out of our personalities and connect with our heart, soul and the universe.  Yet, social reality is a clever con, always inventing effective ways to distort and distract our attention (energy) from our potential enlightenment and transcendence.  This era of illumination and inspiration empowers us with possibility.  We simply must choose it.

What Will It Take?

All of us, yes all of us are universal beings.  This is our birthright as souls living a human experience.  Our life force has been highjacked by authoritarian entities to manipulate us into believing and engaging in the simulation of reality.  We acquiesce our power and direct our energy toward organizations enslaving us with our own fear and conditioned desire for amusement, consumerism and evasion.  What will it take to shift our focus from the social negatives into the universal positives?  What will it take for us to reject the social reality imposed upon us and embrace the truth of our universal selves?  What will it take for us to awaken, focus, intend, express and manifest? Perhaps our very lives…   

“We must be willing to give everything to receive everything.”

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…”

The Birth of Power

“It is a crime against our humanity to segregate ourselves from our personal power.”

In Transition:

Since early last year, we have had an extraordinary opportunity to become related with ourselves, find the ever-evolving balance between our body, mind and heart, relate with our intuition and align with our soul and the universe.  It seems a lot to fathom, let alone apply to our daily lives.  Yet, it is vital to the sustenance of our multidimensional being.  However, anxiety, indifference, ignorance, fear, opinion and self-righteousness are potent obstacles when navigating social reality.  Establishing and maintaining our balance in intense environments is ever more challenging. Going within ourselves and our experience offers us insight to identify and transform the societally conditioned narcissism of humanity.

Spectacle to Behold:

Removing our focal point from the external world and shifting into our inner observer is the key to transforming our experience.  Reality is the grandest of illusions, an enigma of existence, designed for the sole purpose of confusing, diverting and enslaving all in its seductive web of desire and temptation.  It is a brilliant diamond, faceted with mirrors to befuddle the wisest of explorers, leaving us with empty lives and afflicted with social psychoses.  The best way to trick people into believing they are awakened is to saturate perception and reality with propaganda and rhetoric to enable and promote “official” narratives as truth.  Social reality is a racket of deception, devised and enforced by the few to disempower the many.

The Human Schism:

It is astonishing how people are eagerly willing to acquiesce their personal power to the authoritarian organizations of society.  Yet, the instant they are asked to contribute their money, even to the worthiest of causes, they turn to stone.  Where and to what we place our value is symbolic of our experience.  There are essential moments in our lives when we are not present to the gravity of the choices we either do or don’t make.  Often, it is in these instances when we blindly set a course for personal obscurity.  Observation empowers us to draw pivotal distinctions, preventing us from falling prey to social pressures and enabling the schism between our soul and the universe.  Left to our societal devices, oblivion is inevitable.

To Covet and Defend:

There is one thing apparent since the pandemic began.  All our personal weaknesses we seek to hide from our family, friends and colleagues are now even more difficult to conceal.  As human beings, we have an innate tendency to avoid and escape our fears and insecurities.  When the scales of reality are upended, our desire to bolster our inner defenses fails within these current, declining social dynamics.  The psychological impact to us is devastating, sending us reeling and spiraling into our deepest darkness.  For some, it is an opportunity to shift into authenticity and transformation.  For most, a trigger to strengthen their defenses, raise their weapon of self-righteousness and bury the truth of themselves. 

“We have to face our darkness if we seek to become light.”

In Theory:

We engage and enable a dualistic society within a three-dimensional domain.  This paradigm is rarely challenged, as it is commonly accepted reality.  Yet, science neglects the validity of universality since the parameters of its own hypotheses deal primarily with intellectually proven fact instead of universally experienced insight.  Logic fails to understand multidimensionality as there are over seven billion perceptions in the world and the universe is ever transforming.  Regardless, it is apparent to most there is something extraordinary beyond what we can sense.  No matter how we choose to discover and explore universal being, when we are present to our experience, the conclusion is always the same.  Reality is an illusion. 

Against the Current:

We all make mountains of mole hills.  The human psyche tends to devise and embellish events and circumstances well before awareness, common sense and understanding intervene.  This is a characteristic many adopt, given its seeds are planted long before our consciousness is established.  Without daily practices of observation, meditation and transformation, the demons and tragedies we invent and enable grow in tandem with our ego, fear and oblivion.  Eventually, we produce perverse schemes in our reactions to social stimuli, exonerating ourselves from personal accountability.  This results in a loss of power and most importantly energy.  Yet, if we can destroy our power, we can also create it.  

Birth of Power:

Pure energy is the experience of true power.  Most of us do not practice a daily awareness of energy.  It exists much like a dream; abstract, elusive, foreign and even threatening.  When it flows through us, it can inspire an abundance of creativity, empowerment and insight.  It can also cause vortices of destruction, fear and oblivion.  The origin of our power is how we choose to experience and express our energy.  Its containment, conversion and expression define the quality of our existence.  Energy + focus + intention = power.  The universe is the eternal, expansive and infinite source of our vitality.  We exist primarily as finite beings.  Therefore, we experience only a fraction of our universal potential. 

A Claim to Be:

Social reality is the proverbial wool pulled over our eyes to supplement our deficiency of being.  When we seek to become and live awakened, it is essential for us to stake our claim.  The foundation of our being is energy.  The nature of its expression and manifestation is defined by our focus, purpose and willpower.  As multidimensional beings, it is our birthright to transcend our enslavements to duality, ego, fear and opinion.  When we hold a space for ourselves to transition from ordinary existence to extraordinary experience, we reclaim and shift our energy from gratifying our individual ambitions to inspiring collective transformation.  This is our personal power, best expressed when we embody universality to empower all.

“The death of self is the birth of power.”

“Empower Yourself” Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora

Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora from May 27th, 2021 discussing the necessity of balance and empowerment.

“Whenever there are global events that shake up reality, it is an opportunity for us to take the initiative to create something extraordinary.  A vital element of this shift is defining and establishing a “new balance” within ourselves in alignment not just with the current dynamic of society, yet also with the universe.  This balance begins with acknowledging and sustaining the masculine and feminine natures each of us embody.   Opening ourselves to the possibilities both qualities provide allows us to transcend their duality and embrace our universality.  These are the cornerstones of our being, what we manifest and who we become.  It is in the present we are able to empower ourselves progressively and ultimately the world.” – Iam

“Breathing in Courage” Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora.

Breathing In Courage with Iam Saums

Courage is an interesting concept. What does it mean? The desire to act, or not, I would say, in relation to whatever your ‘higher interests’ are. The best for you and for your family, friends, community and especially the entirety of the ‘all of us’. All with an eye on one’s integrity.

So, who decides the answers to these questions? Who chooses what is right and wrong? I see that as a simple answer. You do! I do! We all do for ourselves. Or we don’t and allow others to dictate, rule, coerces. How sad, and unheroic, I would say, to let others tells us what we can and cannot do.

Perhaps courage is simply the willingness, no matter the consequences, perceived or real, to do what we feel is right. Big Question. How do we decide that?

So again, I ask myself what is courage? Do we even know? I would say all of us need to see that for ourselves. Find the answers. Not from movies or that idiot box called a T.V. Certainly not from others, especially those we call Politicians. A fool is a fool who is soon fooled.

For sure, many may inspire us, but a ‘cage master’ by any other name, will still keep you locked away. I want to gag when I see any ‘so-called’ expert in a suit trying to tell me what is or is not so. I suspect any, and all of those ‘voices’ on a tv screen to be acting. Certainly not working my best interest. How could they? The don’t even know me.

So, Courage. How do we get ours? Where would such a concept be found? I was lucky enough to have an interesting conversation on this very topic, and many others besides, with Iam Saums. A visionary, author, poet, musician, but most of all, if I dare so say, an honest man in an honest life trying to dig deep inside himself to find the best answers for him and his life.

A deep breath can do wonders for our health and mental state of being. We are made of breaths and we will die very quickly, if we have none. To limit our breath is to limit our lives.  Wisdom comes on the winds, at times for me. And deep breathing, or so I’ve found, is a key to longer life and conscious choice.

Breathing in Courage can ignite and cool at the same time. Ignite inspirations and Cool down Stress. I invite you all to listen and enjoy.

Further explorations of Iam’s wisdom may be found on his website. And maybe, you may see for yourself how to develop the courage to become the best you, you’ve always felt was possible.

With Much Love, Lorenzo

Big thanks to Iam for Joining us here Today.

An Essential Choice

“We either bury our heads in the sand or choose to make our stand.”

As It Seems:

Society is an abomination.  What have we become?  Why have we allowed it to get to this level of delusion, depravity, destruction and death?  Why do we enable and embolden the industries of economics, medicine, politics and religion?  How can we wield our desire, entitlement, ego, intelligence and self-righteousness as weapons of social destruction to protect our fears, failures and insecurities?  Will we find the courage, intention, strength and willingness to defy our arrogance?  Will we choose to claim and express our unique power to transform the nightmare we have enabled with our lives?  Are these impossible questions to be debunked with our cognitive dissonance or opportunities to shift our experience?   

As It Is:

The impacts of events over the last 18 months have been devastating beyond our wildest fears.  Conflict, corruption, cruelty, disease, inequality, injustice, poverty, prejudice and war have become our nature.  We cannot observe how society is, turn and point the finger at our opponents, then claim victory on Social Media to make ourselves feel better about our own apathy, denial, indifference and judgement.  Our arrogance, entitlement and obscurity are obvious when we see how we helped cause and spread this madness.  Yet, we plod on with our egos, ire and opinions in tow, minute men and women for the timeless debate of wit, wile and wanton.  Are we willing to be accountable and shift our focus from oblivion to awareness?

Social Watermark:

Totalitarian organizations are enforcing modifications to the dynamics of our being, preventing us from being in flow with our heart, soul and the universe.  Over the last few decades, our social environment has become inundated with toxicity.  The effects of which are rarely acknowledged, yet often exhibited as disease, egotism, negativity and violence.  All of this, combined with the current conditions of disorder, inequity and prejudice, have rendered social reality uninhabitable.  Our bodies, minds and hearts are being distorted, manipulated and terrorized by the calculated, callous nuances of simulated society.  The sacred cord that connects us with the universe is being severed.  Social reality is segregating us from our soul.    

The Body:

The greatest side effect of the current pandemic is not physical illness or the fear of contraction.  It is not even the mainstream media assault we have all had to endure.  The deepest impact is on our adrenal glands and nervous systems.  Our social environment disrupts our natural balance.  The stresses of common perception and impending doom have frayed and fatigued our instinctual sensibilities, leaving us tattered and torn beneath the gravity of social reality.  We have all been broken, burdened by a constant barrage of consumable anxiety and disease, spinning us out, turning us around, inside out and upside down.  Our constant, collective focus on it has completed the vicious cycle.

“We have given away our power for the fantasy of Social Reality.”

The Mind:

As much as recent events impact us physically, the psychological effects are as or more devastating.  Mass fear and hysteria are being imposed upon the world’s population with a biased broadcast of information and a relentless campaign, laden with evident agendas.  This is the principal cause of adrenal fatigue and stress exhaustion now rampant in society.  Yet, it has also distorted, dominated and manipulated our thoughts, scrambling our neural pathways and transmitting destructive signals through our minds and bodies contributing to our imbalance.  This has compromised our already fragile immune systems, rendering us susceptible to delusion, disease, degeneration and death.

The Heart:

This last year has been an emotional tug-of-war.  Whether it is the official narrative on which the pandemic is widely reported in contrast to alternative and holistic viewpoints, the intensity of the US Presidential election, classism, inequality, injustice, racism and unrest, the will of the people is broken.  The necessity to defend our unique perception exacerbates our social climate.  Common acceptance, sense and understanding are eagerly abandoned.  Our hearts are overwhelmed both physically and emotionally under the sharp intolerance, judgement and scrutiny from family members, friends and colleagues wielding burden of proof as universal credence.  Our heart centers are being attacked, depleted and traumatized.  When they become unbalanced, we can no longer relate with our soul.   

The Intuition:

Our intuition is the interpreter of our being.  It empowers communication between our body, mind, heart and spirit.  When our body is healthy, our mind is clear and our heart is focused, the centers of our being resonate with our soul.  We all have seven major chakras.  When aligned, they are conduits for energy to flow from the universe and our soul, through our centers and into our heart, mind and body.  Our intuition is an eternal and infinite presence.  It empowers us to establish and maintain equanimity between the elements of our being.  When we achieve this balance, we are sourced by the universe through our soul.  Our intuition sends this multidimensional energy to enliven our heart, mind and body.      

The Soul:

Most people will not intimate with their soul until they pass from this earth, let alone embody it.  Everyone has a destiny with this experience.  Few choose to clarify, realize and sustain this extraordinary expression of being.  Society is a soulless entity, devoid of empathy, kindness, integrity, truth and understanding.  It is a viral syndrome, enslaving our collective soul.  We are immigrants to our essence and the universe.  This stark reality is most present in who we are being, how we live and how we treat each other.  Our arrogance, desire, ego and self-righteousness have sacrificed our soul for instant gratification.  The reckoning for humanity has come.

The Present We Live:

How we live our experience is our choice.  Society implies that there are choices, though few exist within its construct.  There are only menial decisions provided by an authoritarian-imposed affront weaponizing duality with left or right, dark or light, good or evil, day or night and wrong or right.  Being is our ability to break the spell of social conditioning to which we all fall victim.  Social reality is the wool pulled over our eyes when we are not paying attention.  This is our dilemma.  Our brushes with authentic epiphany and insight are rare and fleeting, to the degree we no longer acknowledge them as opportunity.  The past is dead.  The future is created by how present we live.  Universality is the only way we transform reality.

The Choice We Create:

There is a positive energetic shift occurring in the universe sourcing us with creativity, imagination, opportunity and transformation.  There is also a negative energetic movement in society influencing us toward captivity, destruction, fear, illness and death.  Our current era is defined by choice.  We become what we choose.  Where we aim our focus of attention is where we place our energy.  Aligning with the universal shift empowers us to transcend duality and be one with all.  When we opt for societal indoctrination and modification, we concede our personal power as victims of social reality.  The power of this choice cannot be weighed with instinct and intellect alone.  Emotion and intuition empower our choice to become an expression of the universe.            

Choose wisely! While the universe will bring you life, social reality will take it from you.”

Age of Experience

“Perception is the pawn of social reality.”

Veils of Vision:

Each of us adopt, invent and enact perceptual filters.  Some are instinctual, while others mental and emotional.  Occasionally they are intuitive, yet these are rare and fleeting.  Over time, our vision is clouded with so many facets of perception, we mature and live detached from our experience of life.  We seldom cause or live it.  We merely read and respond to our social and environmental stimulus.  Sure, we exist, think and sometimes feel our way.  Ultimately, we allow our anxieties, fears and insecurities to build a barrier between simply living to survive and being to thrive.  We aimlessly wander through the forest of our personal filters, unable to escape the kaleidoscope of collective reality.

Social Psychosis:

It can never be overstated how destructive, impactful, influential and enslaving social reality is.  Our innate desire to set the compass of our life to institutional relativity is how we destroy our creativity, imagination, possibility and transformation.  Being creative, extraordinary and unique is callously and fervently admonished as frivolous in the face of popular existence.  Meanwhile, our relatedness with ourselves and the universe is dismissed, distorted and thwarted by our ego’s selfish appetites.  Social reality casts a long shadow upon our consciousness.  In any moment, there are millions of opportunities to shift ourselves away from mainstream reality and commit to creating an empowering, enriching and inspirational experience.        

Forbidden Fruit:

Our culture is rife with knowledge.  However, contemporary wisdom is primarily intellectual.  For centuries, universal being and multidimensionality have been and are adamantly criticized, reviled as flights of fantasy, daydreams and existential nonsense.  Awareness is frequently threatened by denial, resistance, rejection and ridicule.  Universal experience transcends two-dimensional existence in the three-dimensional domain of social reality.  When it is discovered and explored, we encounter a perceptual paradox that challenges all we have been socially conditioned to believe, sense and think.  All that flies in the face of society’s common narrative is deemed sacrilege. 

Obscured by Clouds:

Social reality is pulled over our senses from the moment we are born.  Our inherent, creative expressions are replaced with conditioned, destructive desires.  Eventually, living in this paradigm renders us oblivious to the necessity of creativity, consciousness, enlightenment and transformation.  It obstructs our universal power to envision, intuit and manifest life experiences, inhibiting our ability to fulfill our personal destiny.  The further we distance from our heart, soul and the universe, the more challenging it becomes for us to experience everything beyond the facade of realism.  Breaking the spell of social reality is far easier than being free from the one we cast upon ourselves.

“We experience as we think, not as we are.”

Age of Illumination:

We are in the currents of a powerful, once-in-a-lifetime energetic shift.  As the global conditions of disease, greed, inequality, injustice, politics, racism, religion and war reign, our experience of this extraordinary age of conscious potentiality is quickening.  Our default patterns of survival serve to distract us from the remarkable opportunities that exist for all to discover, express and become their unique purpose.  Social reality is a hurricane raging around us.  It arouses and entices us to abandon our connection and relation with the universe.  The primary intention for conscious being is establishing the equilibrium between our instinct, intellect, emotion, intuition, soul and the universe.

Synchronistic Symmetry:

All of us have masculine and feminine qualities regardless of our physical gender.  All of us embody the attributes of each planet in the solar system, though we tend to characteristically exhibit two or three.  We all are composed of the four essential elements: air, water, fire and earth.  Therefore, multidimensionality is essential to our fulfilled experience.  The institutions of social reality strategically exclude diversity of being to prevent us from becoming enlightened.  Our dependence, focus, energy and engagement in the charade sustains its existence.  We become one with creation when we establish and empower the balance between our body, mind, heart, intuition and soul.

Creative Opportunity:

Social reality is designed as a method of endurance.  The forbidden fruit of existence is to envision our purpose, create our experience and fulfill our unique destiny.  Our lives are opportunities to transform any circumstance we may encounter.  We are expressions of this power.  Now that the energetic shift is happening, it is a hollow pursuit to simply observe our experience and be mystified.  When extraordinary events transpire, we feel empowerment in every dimension of our being.  The universe inspires us to be present and receive its infinite energy.  Every moment is an opportunity to accept, focus, balance, center, ground, intend and embody our experience.

Being our Experience:

Remarkable experiences are few and fleeting when we are victims of circumstance.  It is impossible for us to be present to our experience when we are continually engaged in the diversions of social reality.  We may appease our body and mind, and our heart may be moved, yet our intuition and spirit are forgotten, silent partners.  The equilibrium of our instincts, thoughts, emotions, intuition and soul is the foundation upon which we create our experience.  This balance sustains our being and inspires our vision, creativity, power and purpose.  When we align our focus, energy and intention with the universe, we become the expression of our personal destiny.  All we choose to imagine becomes our experience.

“Experience is the entrance to enlightenment.”

The Awakening

“Awareness is only the beginning…”

The Woke and The Awakened:

The current fad of social consciousness is being “woke.”  Though its meaning may remain an enigma to many, I imagine “woke” represents those who happen upon insightful information peaking their attention and contemplation.  Whereas “awakened” is the state of being conscious.  These are two remarkably diverse experiences with one vital distinction.  It is good to discover and ponder awareness, yet best to embrace and become awakened.  Consciousness is a personal encounter with intuitive, spiritual and universal potentialities.  One often convoluted, devalued and misunderstood by reactive instinct and intellect.  If waking up is the seed, living consciously are its roots.

Breaking the Spell:

We are all victims of circumstance regarding the commitment and watermark of our awareness.  The culture in which we enable and engage is designed to enslave us into personal obscurity with our own fear, doubt and diversion.  We have moments of insight and even enlightenment, yet the power of these experiences is diminished and destroyed by our focus and dependence on social relativity.  Eventually, most of us sentence ourselves to realities in a virtual vacuum.  We have been conditioned to believe creating our unique purpose is futile, illogical, optional and terrifying.  Being who we are is the most challenging, elusive and significant achievement in life.  Each of us is destined to pioneer our path with the expression of our creativity. 

In-the-Flow:

A once-in-a-millennia energetic movement is now occurring.  It is an extraordinary opportunity for humanity to become conscious, committed, present and related with each other, nature and the universe.  Our universality thrives when we balance our instinct, intellect and emotion with our intuition.  This expression of being attunes us to our unique purpose, connecting us with our soul.  In kind, our spirit relates and resonates with the universe.  This alchemy of our being sources, sustains and unites us with transcendental experiences.  Imagine society when humanity is empowered by conscious expressions of being! The possibilities we collectively choose to create are as eternal and infinite as our soul.

Creation’s Creation:

All of us are creative, regardless of belief, position, race, social status or wealth.  Our multidimensionality aligns us with the world and the universe.  When we balance, express and exercise our sense, thought, feeling and insight, the energy of creativity flows for us to empower, enlighten and manifest our personal medium.  It is our birth rite to inscribe our signature upon the world, as well as experience the benefits of the energy the source provides us through our expression.  As we transform reality by sharing our unique creativity, we are also shifting the dynamics of the universe.  Now more than ever, it is essential we discover and express our voice.

“Creativity is awareness in action.”

The Art of Awakening:

The ultimate expression of creativity is transforming ourselves.  It is a universal declaration to acknowledge, embrace and embody the creative force empowering us to shift the dynamics of our being.  We can empower this opportunity at any moment in any experience.  Though we are prone to vicious cycles of behavior, thought and emotion often depriving our fulfillment, it is simply our choice and intention to observe the nature of our experience and manifest our vision into any environment at any moment.  There is an accelerated progression of energy holding a space for us to shift in ways seldom seen or enacted by humanity.  Our willingness to release all that inhibits our purpose, sources our power to create our destiny.  

Discovery in Observation:

Often taking a breath and witnessing the nature of our experience within social reality inspires our transcendence.  Not with ego, isolation or superiority, yet as an expression of distinction from mundane existence.  Observation is the cornerstone of discovery.  It clarifies and opens our perception, understanding and experience, aligning us with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe.  Our multidimensionality grants us the opportunity to live life not as it seems, rather as it is and can be created.  This is the gateway of awakening.  Each of us has a unique expression of universality.  When we accept and embrace it, our path is guided and empowered by all we discover.

Kindling Consciousness:

In social reality, our awareness is always leaving us.  Engineered society amuses, bewilders, entertains and suppresses. Knowing this is “woke.” Living free from this is being “awakened.”  There are many practices to cultivate our consciousness.  One of the best is meditation.  When we close our eyes, calm our body, mind and heart and focus on our breath, we instantly transform our experience and environment.  It is an exodus from the social indoctrination constantly imposing simulated existence upon us.  It is the pathway to being present in the present.  When we meditate, we are empowered by creativity, energy, insight and transformation.  We are only as conscious as we are present to being.  

Awakened Being:

The energetic shift is now! It is happening within us.  How consciously we live defines how we create our experience.  We are all expressions of the universe.  Awareness of this truth and its manifestation in our lives transcends the global illusions of duality, envy, fear, hate, prejudice and oblivion.  We are all related.  When we embrace and become this, the roots between us grow deep into our souls.  This is the embodiment of universal being.  First, we create this in ourselves.  Then, we empower ourselves to be guided by the universe in our every instinct, thought and feeling.  Next, we inspire others by who we are being.  Eventually, we work together to transform society.  Finally, we let nature be our course. 

“Now is always the era of our awakening.”
