"What is required to transcend the conditions of suffering in which we currently find ourselves is an increase and acceleration of this process of conscious awareness on the level of the individual, and then on a global level. This global awakening will only take place once enough individuals have made enough conscious change within themselves in order for these energies to spill over into the collective Consciousness of humanity, upon which time this change will accelerate even faster and become habituated." -- Mark Passio
What Is The True Pandemic?
Vogue... New... Novel. What was that new/novel virus called again? A Corona Virus? What's on the top of Beyonce's head there in that image? Let me suggest, there is in fact nothing new under the sun. What is IT... what is the true unseen force, unseen plague, that prevents us from accepting... The Truth? What prevents humanity from seeing the truth that sets it free; that creates real illness, that creates all suffering, all immorality, all slavery? It all sounds so backwards, twisted, confusing... that's because it is... it was designed that way... The next natural question becomes, Who or what designed it this way? And... Why? 🧐😉
I am... not a Christian, and neither was Jesus. However, I too have discovered my...

Let Us Not Be Deceived:
"And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." -- Revelations 6:40
There is in fact an ancient Occult (hidden) Religion, comprised of diverse, interconnected, networks of world-wide adherents... a spider's web of sorts. At the ideological core of this religion it posits, it postulates that knowledge of the human psyche and knowledge of the laws (natural law) of the universe should be occulted, hidden, held and wielded, by only a few select human beings. These Dark Occultists should, more accurately, be perceived as Satanists, that is, a version of Satanism, but not your perceived Hollywood indoctrinated version of Satanism. Practically, in practice, they are best understood as an ancient blood line of psychologists who hold, wield and pass on hidden information, thus power, in ways which exploit and manipulate those of us who remain ignorant of this power and them.
If you want to understand the evil that rules the world, what religions call Satan, the Deceiver... I recommend @markpassio 's work.
Jesus said, “God is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, for it cannot see God or know God.”
This one statement explains why people believe in myths that do not make sense and cannot even see the truth that does make sense in the same book. People are either really stupid, or some unseen force is preventing people from seeing it. Could it be both? For example...
The word “apocalypse” means “the unveiling,” a revelation, not the end of the world.
What is going to be unveiled? What is going to be revealed? Could it be the ultimate truth?
The apocalypse (the unveiling): It means the truth is veiled or hidden. If the Bible is true, then no one knows the truth yet, because it says almost no one does. Most religious people are missing this fact. The book they believe is the truth says they do not know the truth yet. This is a key understanding.
It's all about The Now:
Everything about everything, The Truth, is about now (The Present Moment), because nothing else exists. Ask yourself this, as you read this, right now, the only thing that truly exists, your current existence, is right now. True or false? The most important thing we must do is (yes learn from past knowledge), not dwell in the past or remain anxious or fixated upon the future. To remain based, to remain rooted in Truth, our attention, our present moment awareness is focused in The... NOW. Your power, your empowerment comes from the Power of Now, right now. (Search for Eckhart Tolle's books the Power of Now and A New Earth).
"If I let you, you would make me destroy myself
In order to survive you, I must first survive myself
And I can sink no further and I cannot forgive you
There’s no choice but to confront you
To engage you
To erase you
I’ve gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you
There’s no other choice
Shameless NOW, nameless NOW, nothing NOW, no one NOW
And my soul must be iron
Cause my fear is naked
I’m naked and fearless
And my fear is naked
Dead inside, dead inside
Dead inside, dead inside
Nameless NOW, shameless NOW
Nothing NOW, no one NOW
Shit adds up, shit adds up
Shit adds up, as you see me
Naked NOW, fearless NOW
Naked NOW, fearless NOW"
-- Henry Rollins
Let me suggest that the answer is so simple... it's not even considered. What unseen force prevents us from living in the present, from learning from the NOW (also known as The Truth)? What is the antithesis to the truth and what can we use to empower us... to finally see The ultimate Truth?
It was the Love of the Truth, that brought me to the Truth about Love.
The Truth about Love:
What is Love?
Love... Is often misunderstood; misunderstood to be simply an emotion. It is actually a state of awareness, a way of (be)ing in the world, a way of (see)ing, a way of real (eyes)ing ones...self and others. It is to no longer be in opposition... opposition to 'that which is' also known as... The Truth.
Love can be seen, can be real eyes(ed) as an ability, the ability; a free will choice ability, to PAY ATTENTION, to yourself and others unconditionally.
To be or not to be, to see or not to see, that is the question.
Love, as the expansive force, is opposed to the retractive force we call fear. Love is the force in all of our lives that allows us, that gives us space to see, to re...cognize, that we are all one, all part of what I like to call a... ONEKIND. Mankind, became a Mindkind and now must transition into a OneKind through the force of Love; the necessary ACTION step we all have to cultivate to eradicate our suffering and bring true long lasting peace to our world is the truth about Love.
Love of The Truth:
The Truth is... we all have to start being honest with our (S)elves to truly know thy(S)elf. We have to love our (S)elf enough, to re...spect our (S)elf enough, to stop denying what it is within us that causes our lower egoic (s)elf... suffering. We have to stop lying to ourselves and do the inner (shadow) work to correct our... (S)(s)elves. Do not be deceived. What are you afraid of, what do YOU fear? What are you waiting for?
Carl Jung called “the shadow” a dark space in our psyche that all of us have but none of us like to admit is there.
“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it… But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected, and is liable to burst forth suddenly in a moment of unawareness. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.”
Carl Jung, C.W. Vol. 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East
NOW... Surprisingly you've made it this far. How about a musical (Inter)mission, an (Inner)mission, an (Inter)dimensional Mission: A break in the usual Program, to break your usual programming? 🤔
Or skip the music... Scroll down past the video, and keep reading you're almost finished.
Ok... you're into music appreciation, let's do an inn(t)er-dimensional (home)work assignment with my favorite music. Scroll down to the youtube video below and preferably, put on your best headphones. NOW... find your home, your center, close your eyes, don't read the lyrics yet, just listen for now, with me in the NOW right now.
In the church of @paramagic we too break out into song: 😊
Immunity, long and overdue
Contagion, I exhale you
Naive, I opened up to you
Venom and mania
Now, contagion, I exhale you
The deceiver says, he says
You belong to me
You don't wanna breathe the light of the others
Fear the light, fear the breath
Fear the others for eternity
But I hear them now, inhale the clarity
Hear the venom, the venom in
What you say inoculated
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Recast my tale
Weave my allegorical elegy
Enumerate all that I'm to do
Calculating steps away from you
My own mitosis
Growing through division from mania
Recast my tale
Weave my allegorical elegy
Forfeit all control
You poison, you spectacle
Exorcise the spectacle
Exorcise the malady
Exorcise the disparate
Poison for eternity
Purge me and evacuate
The venom and the fear that binds me
Your veil now, lift away
I see you runnin'
Deceiver chased away
A long time comin'
Do not Fear... The Truth.
"The only thing we have to fear [meaning to respect, as in spectacles, to put on your glasses and take a closer look; take a serious look at] is fear itself."
-- Franklin D. Roosevelt
When you are no longer in opposition (opposition defined as life experienced with only the crude filter of the lower (s) egoic self, thus missing the totality of the present moment); when you are no longer in opposition to 'That which is," the present moment, also know as The Truth, you are no longer separate, no longer alone, no longer in opposition to the totality of Your... (S)(s)elf, no longer in opposition to all of life, no longer in opposition to, Allah, The Great Spirit, The All; you are no longer in opposition to what religions call God.
“If you are present, the pain-body cannot feed anymore on your thoughts, or on other people’s reactions. You can simply observe it, and be the witness, be the space for it. Then gradually, its energy will decrease.” - Eckhart Tolle
Reconcilable Differences: The gift of giving.
Once we can give our(S)(s)elves some space, enough space to reconcile and forgive our differences, enough space to allow ourselves to fall in love with... our...(S)(s)elves, our higher, spiritual capital letter S Selves and our lower egoic self, we can begin to operate from the greater expanse, the totality of the Now, the Present Moment; you give your...(S)(s)elves permission to be in Love, and you will truly fall in love for the first time. With work, with persistence doing this "Great Work," you will be fulfilled. With unification, what religion calls a w(h)oly trinity, our mind (the father), body (the son) and spirit (the holy ghost) unification... all of life will be un-veiled. So we will think, so we will feel and so we will act, unified, no longer in opposition.
"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." -- The End from the Beatles last lyric, from the last song, on the last album they recorded.
In other words, the more you can see (love) the perfection of how life operates, by paying attention to the present moment in the now; the love you take from life or accept from true life, from the truth and the life, the more you will be able to make or reflect back to other people. It is one of the most important things we can do.
When you start to see, to truly see, you real eyes that biblical Revelation is about the beginning of Christianity and Genesis is about NOW, the Present Moment... what Jesus called... The Truth and the Life.
"Don't look for any other state than the one you are in NOW; otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance. Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender." -- Eckhart Tolle
To (K)NOW or not to (K)NOW, that is also the question.
To (K)NOW the complete Truth, the Truth AND the LIFE... we must necessarily partake from the tree of knowledge and the tree of life.
What is the tree of life?
There is another tree in the story of the Garden of Eden that mankind is about to start partaking of. The Bible calls it the tree of life. Once we know the ultimate truth, we wake up to divine life; we metaphorically begin to start partaking of the tree of life. We are born again as spiritual beings. A spiritual being metaphorically eats from both the tree of knowledge first, then the tree of life.
The Bible says, “Behold the man has become as one of us to know good and evil, NOW lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat and live forever.” Genesis 3:22
When you eat from the tree of life, you will know both the mind truth (tree of knowledge) and the living truth (tree of life). You will then know the truth and the life... what Jesus says he was. Just another coincidence?
That Bible verse is supposed to represent the voice of God. The key word is “live,” not just exist forever. You can live in God/life forever, in heaven forever. Are you alive NOW, truly Alive in the here and NOW?
We have a choice, a free will choice, we can evil forever or we can turn that around and truly live forever. What's it going to be? Good Luck Humanity!
The Bible says that God tells Adam and Eve: “If you eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, you will surely die.” They did not die physically, but they did die spiritually. They died to true life; they died to the present, and paradise was lost. The story represents Mankind transitioning into a Mindkind. Mindkind must now take its next evolutionary leap in consciousness to a Spiritkind, to ultimately bring us all together as a Onekind.
The Bible verse plainly says that if we eat from the tree of life after we eat from the tree of knowledge, we will be as gods, "become as one of us." It says that we will be more than Adam and Eve were. Adam and Eve were not like gods before eating the apple. We do not want to get back to the garden. Adam and Eve did what they had to do to get to heaven. The Garden of Eden was not perfect, heaven is. To realize heaven, you have to know the truth and the life; you have to metaphorically eat from both trees.
People have been misinterpreting the story. People believe they did something wrong; the opposite is the truth. They sacrificed paradise for knowledge. The serpent did them the ultimate favor in the long run. We needed the mind to learn the truth, and we needed the truth to know divine life, to get to God, to be one with God and finally (k)now heaven. Mankind became a Mindkind, NOW Mindkind must take its next leap in evolutionary consciousness and finally become a ONEKIND.
"Peace comes from within, do not seek it without" --The Buddha
"Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts happiness follows him like his never-departing shadow." The Buddha (Source Dhammapada)
Mankind>>>Mindkind>>>Spiritkind>>>Onekind = A World-Wide Enlightenment.
In our evolution Mankind was transformed into Mindkind. It is and was a necessary step. The problem is we have become only our mind, what we have come to call our egoic mind. It is as Descartes famously said, I think therefore I am. We have come to believe that we are only our thinking mind. We have failed to recognize that this tool, the thinking mind, is not the totality of who we are. We have mis-identified ourselves to be only our mind. And for this mis-identified mind self, what we call the ego, to survive, makes time (past and future) more important than our present. To take our next leap in evolutionary consciousness, we say we must awaken to the totality of the all, all of our selves, all of life. This awakening, this shift in consciousness begins with a separation of thinking and awareness. This separation allows us space to see that we are more than just our self-identified egoic mind self; that something more fundamental resides within us. We discover that there is a higher capital (S)elf that is the witness of our lower (s)elf. It is this higher Self that must lead the lower self in this dance of life. Currently all suffering on this planet is a result of allowing our mis-identified lower egoic self to rule us. Religions have called this lower self, the fallen angel, Satan, the deceiver. Religions tell us we have to restore our fallen angel with the truth of our higher Selves. To save our Selves from our selves we have to evolve our (S)(s)elves. The final step to awakening is to re-unite our Self with our self in a more perfect union. That more perfect union results in our higher spiritual Selves... leading our lower egoic mind selves, not the other way around. This is true dominion of THYSELF. With our spiritual perfect union selves, using the tool of the mind, we can now TRULY know it ALL, the ALL, what religions call God. We will be transformed... Mankind, who became a Mindkind will finally evolve into a Onekind.
The Bible says, “We must turn our minds into the minds of an angel.”
The story of Adam and Eve has many hidden things in it, but the overall message is how our minds were created. It describes how we joined with the devil/mind, and how we can turn this devil/mind back into an angel. It is what the bible calls a restoration of the fallen angel.
Allegorically speaking, what is the Devil and what is the Lord?
Satan = “adversary.”
The truth is often described as 'that which is' and the Bible describes the devil (backwards for lived) as "that which deceives the world." So the anti-truth, from a biblical point of view, can be seen as the devil (our own egoic minds), the devil, the ego, is just too close for most people to see it. When seen, when we PAY ATTENTION (present moment awareness, Love), we learn, we recognize there is only one thing that deceives us, one thing that hides the truth and life from us, one thing that causes our suffering... we learn how to turn the devil to its opposite, to turn the devil into lived, to truly have lived... the trick is to learn how to SEE IT. To learn how to do it. To learn how to truly live in the Truth.
"Once I was blind, now I can see." --John 9:25
Some people think the devil is a living creature, something with horns and a pointed tail, a cosmic criminal. It is actually a metaphor for our own egoic animal minds. The devil is just a name for the force of deception in all our lives. The adversary of God, the Anti-truth, the Anti-Christ, the Anti-lived, etc., is the mind, the unfettered egoic mind, the beast within. We have not truly lived until we turn the devil.
"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world.: - Revelation 12:9
The beast within...
There is only one deceiver. To evil is the opposite of to truly live and evil is whatever it is that prevents us from seeing the truth and the life, from seeing true life, from being with God, Life, The Great Spirit, Allah, the omniscient, omnipresent force that religions call God.
"So He said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” -- John 8:31-32
"To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."
-- Revelations 2:7
" The most excellent jihad is the conquest of self." -- Prophet Muhammed
In other words, when you overcome the delusions of the mind, you can see life as it truly is, and it will fulfill you. The metaphor of life as fruit or food means life, when truly seen (the now, the present moment), will nourish you. Jesus said, man does not live by bread alone.
The story metaphorically describes the transition of human beings into mankind perfectly. It also shows us the next step in our evolution. The odds of it just being a coincidence are way too low. This story came from our collective unconscious (Carl Jung's term), or the Holy Spirit, if you prefer the religious terminology.
Like most dogmatic religious things, the Bible is interpreted backwards and upside down. People are thinking Genesis is about just the beginning of mankind, and it is actually more about the end; it is about what is happening now. People are looking in the book of Revelation thinking it applies to now or the future, when it is mostly about the beginning of Christianity. 666 was Nero, the Emperor of Rome.
It has taken us ten-thousand years to get into a position to see and understand the knowledge of our past and be able to truly fall in love and eat from the tree of life now, in the NOW, but better late than never. Eating from the tree of life will not be as easy as biting into an apple. It will require taking control of our animal mind and putting it behind our spirit.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."
-- Henry David Thoreau
A Dark Occult declared war upon all of us long ago, do not be deceived, seek the truth and take your next leap in consciousness.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
-- Matthew 7:7-8
