The day the system went too far and gave the game away

imagesOLX8M0EWThirteen years ago incredible images of a supposed attack in New York appeared on tv and computer screens all over the world. Fairly soon afterwards it became increasingly clear that the official narrative on these events didn’t stand up to scrutiny.

For the first time in history we knew beyond doubt that governments of the supposedly democratic West were involved in massive lies and manipulation leading to senseless wars and severe curtailment of personal freedom.

As of late the political class in the USA, UK, France and other Western powers have lost pretty much all credibility. And not only the political class, increasingly seen as mere puppets, but more widely the entire ruling elite, including leaders of banks, multinationals, churches and academic institutions.

That society is run by a bunch of corrupt psychopaths is now plain for all to see.

In that light older stories such as the assignation of J F Kennedy, the supposed Tonkin naval attack used as pretext for the Vietnam war, the death of Princess Diana and more recent episodes like the Madrid bombing, the suspicious death of Robin Cook who had resigned from Tony Blair’s government over the Iraq war, the disappearance of the Malaysian plane last March and the exposure of establishment paedophile rings are no longer unrelated events but interconnected manifestations of evil by the same international cabal.

The question arises of when the rot started in humanity. And the amazing thing is that the same kind of corruption, brutality, manipulation and lies is found at all stages of known history as far back as Roman, Greek and Egyptian antiquity.

Which suggests that we are facing a nefarious mindset transmitted from generation to generation. Why should this be the case is virtually impossible to explain convincingly in the narrow materialist vision of reality.

But when you accept the evidence of occult entities infesting the minds of incarnated humans, the whole jigsaw begins to make sense.

At that point you can’t avoid embracing genuine spirituality unless you accept to slide into denial and fearful subservience. The latter position only makes you unhappy and ill. Embracing spirituality is the way. It is has to be genuine, in complete integrity and alignment with the unconditional love that is at the source of everything.

Any attempt to restrict your life to self centred, fear based materialist pursuits brings you nowhere. Deep down you know it. More on this in the book The Subtle Dance.

Let’s be thankful to the powers that be for having given their game away on 11 September 2001.

Trust Presence,

Love,

Low cost final rat race

images6JDTFNTWThe low cost model is spreading to virtually all sectors of the world economy. Food production, retail, furniture, clothing, air travel and many other activities are now largely in the hands of multinationals operating according to that model (including through their suppliers, subcontractors and distributors).

The effect is particularly dramatic and quite literally toxic in agriculture and retail. Many hard pressed consumers now look for the cheapest of the cheap when buying their food.

Doing so they not only weaken their health but support intensive agriculture and its attendant destruction of ecosystems and local communities. They support massive sea and road transportation. They encourage companies with no concern whatsoever for the welfare of the people working for them, often on precarious contractual terms not far from slavery.

But many consumers are themselves victims of the effects of globalisation and generalised obsession with “productivity”: less jobs, harder work and lower real incomes for almost everyone, and ever more money for a very small “elite”.

Crucially a lot of people regarding themselves as middle or upper middle class feel the pinch, fear for their future and that of their children. They too now often rush to hard discounters to get ultra cheap chicken wings, potatoes, wine and other products (see for instance http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2736246/We-Lidl-class-Store-s-11-99-bubbly-woos-new-shoppers.html )

Like most people today they are too busy and distracted to be able to visualise mentally the hall with ten thousands chickens, each with the equivalent of an A4 sheet to survive on, all stuffed with antibiotics and other chemicals. When you eat the flesh of one of those birds, what happens is that your body-mind-soul system receives messages of fear and utter misery encrypted in the cells on the poor creature out of its animal concentration camp. And these messages do you no good at all. Physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Industrially grown potatoes also carry disharmonious vibes as the soil they came from was turned over by big machines destroying its rich ecosystem of worms and other creatures, before being spread with large amounts of chemicals. Not to mention the use of GM varieties. As for cheap industrial wine, this is more a chemical drink than real wine. No need to go into the details.

In short, rushing to the supermarket to buy cheap food plays in the hands of a profoundly predatory system of which the unaware buyer is one of the first victims.

But, many will say, we have no choice; our budget for food is now so limited. Of course it is under pressure from lower real incomes and from competing demands: housing, cars, electronic gadgets, holidays, and all sorts of things to keep up the appearance, to try to stay on the pathetic social ladder.

Mankind has fallen in the huge trap of materialism, and the rise of the low cost model signals it is entering the last stage of evolution towards generalised slavery and disharmony.

But, as explained at length in previous posts and in the book The Subtle Dance, this sombre “reality” is only is a thin layer within a much broader reality, most of it not directly accessible to our five senses.

Once you begin to see through the veil of material so-called reality, your whole outlook on existence changes radically and you are no longer a lonely rat rushing in a dead end.

Be lucid and take heart.

Love,

It’s the spirituality, stupid

According to the well known phrase from Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign, the economy determines the outcome of elections because it lies at the core of most people’s preoccupations.

At the time this might have sounded like a convincing piece of street wisdom.

images japanse girl and dogAs of late, however, it is has become glaringly obvious to anyone not blind and deaf or in complete denial that the economy, and more generally the dominant materialist way of life, is destroying nature, society and itself.

And it is equally obvious that political leaders, no matter of what camp, are no longer even seriously pretending to have solutions to the deepening global crisis. They and the mighty rich folks who manipulate them are just after more quick money and vain glory regardless of collateral damages of their actions.

If your vision of reality is restricted to the tangible and material, the outlook for us humans looks pretty depressing.

But you can adopt a completely different vision of reality. You can open up to the subtle side of existence. Many observations suggest reality is vastly bigger and more subtle than the dominant culture would have us believe. This is outlined in some detail in my book The Subtle Dance.

Once you become aware of the subtle side of existence and begin to pay attention to the inner silent voice deep in yourself, you’re on your way to fundamentally change every aspect of your life.

You enter spirituality.

Not that you’re about to spend half your day sitting in a yoga posture trying to think of nothing except the universe. But you are about to realise the pertinence and strength of what the inner voice, synchronistic messages and subtle signs keep suggesting.

This realisation is purely personal and experiential. Books, articles, videos, etc. can help, but at the end of the day you have to go on your own journey. As you gain confidence in the flow of subtle guidance received from the silent “Presence” constantly within you, your relationship with Presence and everything in life becomes a fascinating dance. You may still encounter fear and anxiety, but you are no longer totally in their grip. Panic recedes and your freedom grows.

As this evolution progresses, you wonder how you could have been so mesmerised by the contortions of the materialists running the show on the planet. You realise that they must be in the grip of misguided occult entities. But that doesn’t plunge you in despair because you have learned to trust Presence, and know the strength from aligning with total universal love.

It’s natural spirituality for you.

Love,

Leo

Epilogue

numérisation0058If you are on a journey from honest rationalism to freedom and spirituality, I hope this book has provided you with enough material to bolster your confidence in your own intuition.

Deep down you’ve always felt that something was shaky and shallow in society’s mainstream narrative. Reality is far more subtle that what we’re told by the system. Yet the system impresses because it plays on fear and the whims of ego. It has a firm grip on education, science, justice… It has authority. It is Authority. But only in the thin layer of reality that we perceive through the distorted lenses of the belief system downloaded in our minds.

Evidence of the subtle side of reality is massive and beyond doubt. Part I outlined a few aspects of this mountain of evidence. I would encourage you to conduct your own research, and test, compare and verify as much as possible by yourself.

Present developments on the planet are accelerating beyond anything anyone could have imagined a few decades ago. Part II shed light on a few historical trends and focused on the global crisis and the role of the elite in nurturing the crisis and manipulating events and information to create confusion, anxiety and ultimately total subservience out of fear.

Recognising all this, the crucial question left for the ex rationalist is “what is the purpose of my life in this mess and how can I navigate through it all to fulfil my life mission?” Part III sought to convey the potentially luminous simplicity of our relationship with “Presence”, that silent little voice, always present, always wise. This relationship is dynamic and beautiful; it’s a dance, a clever dance. Every step is new, every step is an adventure, a discovery. Some steps can be hard, even seemingly cruel. But as one learns to dance and to understand how Presence guides us, it becomes obvious that all joys and hardships alike are guiding messages.

The ultimate challenge is to find the courage to always follow Presence’s silent recommendations, even when our intellect fails to grasp their rationale. This is true for the smallest everyday things and for the most crucial choices in life. This is true for purely personal matters, such as one’s own physical health, and is also true for our participation in the collective destiny of humans and other creatures on the planet.

Part III. Follow your soul

Out of slavery

Only continual interaction with the gentle Presence inside us is of real help in today’s world. Although most people sense that something is profoundly wrong with the all pervasive fear and stubborn egotism that dominate society, they can’t put their finger on the root of the problem and have no idea of how things could be improved. As a matter of fact we’re all subjected to intensive mind control designed to maintain us in a state of confusion and frightened bewilderment. The rat race seems an inescapable fact of life and continual competition in every field is routinely presented as the very dynamics of existence, whereas in reality it is a pathetic dead end struggle between bruised little egos.

The core difficulty is that there does not seem to be any credible alternative to that pointless rat race. At least not as long we remain trapped in the mindset forced on us by the occult powers running the show in “this world”. These have thoroughly brainwashed us with themes of fear, judgement, guilt, hatred, separation, hierarchy, and the absurdly restrictive belief that what we see is all there is. Regaining our freedom requires giving up these ideas and realising that society’s dominant elite is possessed by misguided spiritual entities.

Events on the planet are presently so shocking that it looks as if the elite had given up any real pretence to be acting for the common good. The masks are down. And yet so many people still refuse to see the obvious. Because they are in fear and totally absorbed by the survival game. Fear is instilled by a comprehensive system of indoctrination involving virtually every mainstream institution and relayed down society’s hierarchical lines by lots of different people, many of then naively sincere. There lies a big challenge: to have to question practically everything we’ve been told, even by our parents, teachers, family doctor and other well meaning individuals who genuinely thought what they told us was true and in our best interest to know. Their intent was good, but they were themselves trapped in the powerful belief system created to control humanity. A cycle of mind control which has repeated itself over and over for generations.

Today, we have a chance to break the cycle, because we can see what goes on at the global level, which previous generations couldn’t. Subtle vibrational changes are taking place, which sensitive folks can feel quite distinctly. The controlling forces know that their power is under threat and they do all they can to create more panic, agitation and distractions than ever before in order to keep everyone in the mental prison. This is quite evident from all the senseless military activity intensifying around the globe, from the repeated alerts about supposedly deadly viruses and unprecedented epidemics, from the engineered economic and migration crises, all whipped up at nauseam by the media which at the same time devote a vast amount of attention to trivialities like sport competitions and celebrity shows interspersed with silly adverts.

The very excesses of this torrent of manipulation and trivia are giving the plot away. A dying monster is spitting fire in desperation. We can see it all so clearly. Now how do we navigate through that extraordinary environment? Our ultimate personal guide is Presence. And the way to signal to Presence that we are ready to follow its guidance is by aligning with unconditional integrity, love, compassion and forgiveness for all, including ourselves. When we say “all”, this means more than all humans, it means all creatures: plants, water, stones, animals, and invisible entities of any kind. This is natural spirituality, inclusive and holistic. It’s a trusting embrace of the universe.

In a way natural spirituality is extremely simple, frighteningly simple. Too simple, at first, to be readily accepted by our reasoning intellect. The latter is clever at raising possible objections. You’re not going to trust science any more? Are you rejecting the religion of your fathers? You know that “real life” is a hard struggle, don’t you? You’re not going to start daydreaming about hairy fairy stuff, are you? … etc., etc. Before clinging back to the fears and limitations of your panicky intellect, ask yourself if your intellect, or anybody’s intellect, is capable of making coherent sense of what goes on in the world, and of conceiving “solutions”, collective or personal. If you are lucid and honest, you have to admit that the intellect can’t do it, because it is a very limited tool that won’t bring you very far at all.

And if, by contrast, you think back of the synchronicities and subtle messages you received at different points in your life, you have to admit that the power of Presence is much greater than that of the intellect. This is experiential evidence. Ultimately it is the only evidence at our disposal to choose our path. Either the path of materialistic and dogmatic beliefs or the path of natural spirituality with Presence guiding every aspect of our life.

At this juncture, words are too narrow and limiting to convey the message. Only in your personal interaction with Presence can you find the energy and enlightenment to move forward. There are of course practical things you can do to facilitate spiritual progress. Like meditating, going in the fresh air and exercising, interacting with animals and plants, eating healthy non industrial food, relying on alternative forms of healing, reducing the time spent using electronic gadgets…etc. These are very good habits, but at the end of the day they are not the essential.

The essential is the ability to hear the inner little voice of Presence and the courage to follow its advice even when your intellect can’t immediately figure out the rationale for that advice. Whenever you have that courage you invariably find out that the rationale for what Presence suggested always appears at some stage. The key is that Presence knows. Presence is not hindered by the barrier of time. Presence is aware of the full spectrum of potentialities. He/she knows that if you do this or that the consequences will be a or b. On that basis it advises you and then leaves you free to follow the advice or to ignore it.

The problem of most people is that they can’t hear Presence’s little voice because their mind is too distracted by all the noise from society amplified by their ego. In the previous chapter we have seen techniques to keep the ego under control so as to regain the ability to hear the inner little voice. Say you have acquired that ability. That’s marvellous. But then the choice is yours: either following the advice as it is, even if you can’t see its rational justification, or letting your intellect take over, reason, speculate and lead you on a different path. Anyone brought up in the Western way of thinking will be extremely tempted to trust his intellect rather than Presence’s little voice. At that point you have to gather the courage to resist the sirens of the intellect and trust Presence totally.

A practical way to learn to do this is to experiment first with little things. Here is an example I have experienced myself recently. While cleaning up our garage which is full of stuff, I tore a panel of hard cardboard into pieces and was about to throw them all in the paper and cardboard bin when I felt the little voice advising me very strongly to keep three pieces of a certain size. Why on earth would Presence interfere with such a mundane activity as throwing away pieces of cardboard? Anyway I followed this incomprehensible advice. Within minutes it turned out that the three pieces I had kept fitted perfectly at the bottom of an old wooden fruit box which I was very glad to be able to use to keep half used pots of paints, bushes and other stuff.

You may wonder why Presence gets involved into such unimportant matters. The thing is that Presence is queen to help us with little as well as with more important aspects of our life. In fact, unlike the earth bound intellect, eternal Presence isn’t obsessed with distinctions and separations: when does something begin to be “important”? The only thing that matters is whether we are on the path of our mission in life which can be anything that facilitates our spiritual progress towards complete alignment with unconditional love. All the rest is detail for which we can simply trust Presence.

But you don’t have to believe me. Experiment by yourself. Just be attentive to the next messages of your own Presence, follow them if they don’t seem too risky and see what happens. Once you will have experimented a few times with little things and seen by yourself how it works, you will have the confidence to trust Presence for matters that, in your eyes, seem more important.

You might think that this business of Presence sounds quite promising at an individual level but wonder how it could ever help solve the immense and apparently intractable problems of mankind. And therefore doubt that it could seriously help your children and grand children have a decent life in an increasingly chaotic society and degraded environment. That is where trust in your inner Presence takes on a truly universal dimension. When you become free from the mind control imposed on society by occult entities through the ego’s of a corrupt elite, you radiate positive subtle energy in the universe, and when enough of us become free and begin to generate such positive subtle energy, a critical mass is reached and the whole game of visible “reality” is changed at a fundamental level.

Here again you don’t have to believe me. Observe by yourself what goes on in the world. Observe your own reactions, and how they change once you start following your own Presence’s flow of suggestions and guidance.

To Russia with love

You and I have no enemy.

That is, no other enemy than the “elite” controlling practically every institution in “the West”, and in most of the world.

Mainstream media keep dishing out crude propaganda against Russia regarding Ukraine. As if we couldn’t see through the plot: pay thugs to create extremely violent demonstrations in order to topple Kiev’s lawful government until the president (admittedly no angel, but no worse than other rulers supported by the EU and US) is forced to go and leave the reigns of power in the hands of a bunch of fascists; then blame Russia for supporting Russian speaking communities in Ukraine aggressed by the illegal new regime in Kiev.

You and I have no enemy.

article-2235371-15E033E8000005DC-537_306x440

Russia’s ordinary citizens are our brothers, like all other ordinary citizens anywhere in the world. We have no reason to accept the idea of sanctions against Russia when the whole Ukraine crisis has clearly been provoked by Western leadership, itself controlled by covert forces, as is all too evident from so many observations.

Now the crux in facing the world situation (Ukraine, Gaza, agro-food and medical fascism, geo-engineering, etc. etc.) is that opposing evil frontally, through force, resistance and even rational argument is a waste of time. In fact devoting too many thoughts to the evil system actually feeds the system at the subtle level where thoughts and energy determine what goes on in the visible material world.

The same cycle of fear, hatred, competition, and violence has repeated itself for centuries. By now it is clear that the only way to come out of that cycle is to switch to the love paradigm. Lucid, non judgemental love for the whole of oneness.

Who cares about the border between Russia and Ukraine. Or between the US and Mexico, or Scotland and England, or the Basque country and the rest of Spain. All borders are just tools in the world plot to set us all against one another. Instruments in the divide and rule strategy of the controlling elite possessed by dark forces.

The good news is that the dark forces can’t achieve anything if we let go of fear, hatred and aggressivity. That comes from the law of attraction underpinning our destinies.

Much love to Russians, and Ukranians, and Yankees, and all animals and trees and planets and spirits in all planes and dimensions.

Yours,

Leo

Part III. Follow your soul

Silencing ego and unhelpful entities

The exact nature of our ego and of entities attached to it is beyond rational comprehension. And so is the reason why they continually interfere with our lives. But in the end that’s not so important. Our practical experience is that they do interfere, and we have to find practical ways to deal with them. Dogmatic religion tends to view the ego as sinful and entities interfering with us as evil and malign. To free a person possessed by dark entities the conventional technique used by religious authorities is exorcism. This is a confrontational approach, a facet of the relentless fight between good and evil.

We prefer a completely different approach. In our vision the ego is not per se bad and sinful. It is essentially full of fear and craving for love. As for entities, whether lost souls trapped around the material world after their physical life or so-called demonic entities, they are not intrinsically bad either even if they make us do “bad” things. We prefer to call them misguided. Even the souls of the most horrible criminals, sadists and tyrants, alive or dead, and the devil himself are ultimately poor sods who got themselves tangled in the wrong vibrations.

Think about it. If we are really serious about total unconditional love permeating an all encompassing oneness, we simply have no choice but extending empathy, pardon and sincere good intentions towards every conceivable bundle of consciousness. Short of absolute unconditional love, intuitive guidance by Presence gets blurred, and judgement sets in with attendant hatred and fear. And our whole nice vision collapses into total confusion. So every spiritual, psychological, healing technique or any other technique we may consider has to be in absolute alignment with total unconditional love extending to all possible entities, including people and animals alive, extraterrestrials, demons, earthbound spirits or any other invisible thing. This is non negotiable. Let’s be crystal clear about this: you bring an ounce of judgement and non love to the table, and all your best intentions go down the drain.

Admittedly this is not always so easy to do. Let’s face it, there are people, alive or dead, whom we love to hate for all kinds of reasons. And there are a lot of other people whom we find uninteresting if not totally repulsive. And there are a lot of situations and places we find unattractive, boring, or ugly. Changing our attitude towards non judgement – not silly optimism, but non judgement – requires a significant effort. But that’s the deal. All the techniques and tricks we are going to look at in the next pages aren’t worth anything without complete surrender to total unconditional love for all that exists.

Now on to the practical stuff. First, we need to protect ourselves from the mistakes of our ego and the misguided entities that seek to interfere with us. At the end of the day these effects boil down to one thing: distracting us from intuitive guidance by Presence, hindering our connection to Source, and sucking away our subtle energy. We need to develop tactics to ensure that we manage to keep following intuitive guidance and retain our vital energy in spite of all the distractions thrown at us. To do this we have to learn to recognise the tricks of ego and the entities. This is not like unmasking a culprit and putting him away for good. Because the ego is for ever changing, popping up with different faces. It can appear ruthless and vile, but also look nice and full of good intentions. So how can we recognise its whims and not confuse them for messages from Presence? What are the tangible manifestations to alert us?

A first sign is when your mind is caught in incessant chatter. You can’t stop it. It rumbles on and on from one idea or emotion to another at a frantic pace. Sometimes reminiscing old stuff, retrospective anger, suffering, shame or regrets. Or stirring negative anticipations about the future. This inner chatter of ego is exhausting and highly distractive. It keeps your attention away from what you are doing and covers the silent little voice of Presence.

Another sign is when your ideas and associated emotions tend to be restrictive or judgemental. When you allow yourself to be misguided by antipathy towards a person or group, by racism, nationalism, clichés, moral dogmas, political prejudices, etc…etc. Or on the contrary when you are lured by the seductive theatricals of people who just want to manipulate you and try to steal your energy. In all cases the limitations created by the ego destroy your ability to be free and engage in harmonious relations.

A further indication is when you feel deeply empty, dissatisfied, frustrated, in want of something you can’t exactly put your finger on. A feeling that life is not treating you as it should. This is a limiting belief that you are creating for yourself. You feel cheated, you resent it and you are prompted to feel resentment against everything and everybody.

What these various manifestations have in common is that they tend to make you feel tired, exhausted and depressed or stimulate you into manic agitation. The flow of energy is never balanced. The ego keeps your mind in a narrow vision of yourself in relation to the world around you. It makes you loose sight of your eternal perfect higher self and imagine that you are only this body and this social role. Neither of the latter can ever be up to your true aspirations. All this creates havoc into your mind-body-soul system. Destroying, sucking or perverting your life energy. And once your subtle energy is impaired the ego sets you on the prowl to find replacement energy to steal from outside. Drinking, taking drugs, staying glued to electronic gadgets, overworking, and compulsive eating…all forms of addictive behaviour are vain attempts to regain some of the vital energy drained by various entities through the contortions of ego. Learning to recognise the wrong messages of ego and to be aware of possible entities infesting your life comes with practice. Once you are aware of the phenomenon you gradually acquire the ability to spot its manifestations.

The next step is to develop techniques to prevent the ego and entities from getting you into trouble or prompt you to harm others. Think of the state of uncontrollable rage some people fall into when faced with unexpected frustrations. You see them shout and throw or break stuff, when it’s not actually hitting somebody. When it happens it is very painful for them, and can be traumatic for people around. The person is generally well aware, and quite ashamed of what he or she is up to, but can’t stop. The frustration build up is too powerful, steam has to come out. Defusing the workings of ego and attached entities consists in preventing the blend of thoughts and emotions leading to such rage and violence, or to covert self harming or other destructive attitudes, sometimes under the disguise of kindness and good intentions.

In the conventional view of life we tend to associate the way people behave to their “personality”, with its “good” and “bad” sides. Society tends to admire “strong” personalities, and generally values the idea of personality, as if it was something to be proud of and cherish. As if it was the intrinsic mark of what we are. In fact personality is only a superficial and temporary part of us: the role we play in this life, which is easily taken over by the ego. Techniques for muting the ego and keeping entities at bay rest on a clear awareness of what we really are: eternal and perfect waves of infinite consciousness. Clear awareness that there is nothing amiss about us and that we are in no way inferior or superior to anyone or anything.

A very effective technique to get rid of the negative ideas and emotions implanted in our body-mind-soul system through the mistakes of ego and interference of entities is “ho’oponopono”. This technique originating from Hawaai has become very popular in recent years. It consists in silently saying the words: “Sorry, please excuse me, thank you, I love you”. In poetic esoteric parlance you could say it’s a technique of purification. In a computer metaphor we can call it a procedure for cleansing files. The ego and attached entities work with limiting beliefs and judgements. If you remove these regularly, you literally pull the carpet from under their feet and stop them starting their act.

How can you use ho’ponopono in practice? Say you are going to meet someone – professionally or in a private context – and you are a bit apprehensive about his or her attitude towards you. Just before meeting the person, say the words. Say them sincerely, not addressed to the person, but addressed to the universe. You are effectively asking the universe to help you get rid of the judgements you may have about that person’s attitude towards you. In fact you don’t know what the person’s attitude is towards you. And what you imagine has no solid basis. So just wipe it all out. But this is not so easy to do, because your ego feeds you with all sorts of wrong ideas. So you ask the universe to clear away these wrong ideas. And you ask it with the words of ho’oponopono. An immediately tangible effect of ho’oponopono is to help you stay calm, attentive and open minded. It makes you appear more relaxed, less aggressive, more cooperative. The person in front of you senses this and responds accordingly. The dialogue is easier. Subtle energy flows better.

Fairly straightforward in fact, and very effective in a wide variety of circumstances. For instance you can use ho’oponopono while driving. You see stressed drivers in their cars around you, there is a lorry in front that you’ll have to overtake. Say the words to ask the universe to remove judgements or anticipations you might have about other drivers. You will feel more relaxed and more attentive. And other drivers will behave more decently than you’d half expected prior to your purification of thoughts and emotions. Yet these drivers could not possibly have observed your body language like a direct interlocutor in a meeting might perhaps do. So is some kind of telepathy involved? Who knows? The mechanics are not important. What matters is that it works. The words of ho’oponopono, and more importantly the sincere intention behind them actually influence reality, your reality, the one on the screen of your mind.

The technique can also be applied in relation to your body. If you feel pain or discomfort, you may ensure that you don’t get into a panic but keep an open mind and do your best to hear the messages your body is sending you. Like “you need a rest”. Or “you don’t want to be overburdened by excess food”. Say the words of ho’oponopono to ask the universe to eliminate any fears you might have about your health. It will help you remember that your body is not a machine getting gradually worn out but an open system continually regenerating itself, even in old age, even on the eve of death. And the latter after all is only a change of scenery at spiritual level.

The best way, in fact the only way, to learn the use of ho’oponopono is through regular practice in different contexts, at different times, with different people or things. You have to experiment and observe. And experiment not only with sincerity and confidence but also with respect for other peoples’ freedom. When you are discussing with someone, it may be that the other person is right to disagree with you or refuse to do what you are asking. So your attitude when addressing the words of ho’oponopono to the universe must be to wish what is best for all concerned rather just what your ego thinks is best for you.

Having some idea of how to mute ego and attached entities, we are now going to explore attitudes and techniques to prompt positive responses from Presence.

Part III. Follow your soul

The silent Presence

On the face of it, “our world” looks like becoming utterly awful. We’re marching towards global madness and our reasoning intellect appears powerless to deal with the inextricable knot of problems and contradictions facing mankind. But many observations suggest that the whole drama is only the shallow end of reality. There is clearly a much wider and more subtle side of existence. We peered through it in the first part of this book. And then used our insights to take a fresh look at what might be driving the global crisis in the material world.

Now we come to the practical part of the book: how we can change our life to create more harmony within ourselves, send positive vibes into the world and stop being intimidated by the dominant system. In the next chapters we discuss attitudes, techniques and tricks which work well for a number of people. But learning to swim through life’s tumultuous flow of energy is a personal adventure. So don’t take any of what follows as instructions for what you have to do. Try and experiment, and have confidence in the silent Presence within yourself. Presence is a true friend always ready to help. A kind and faithful partner waiting to guide your every step in a new dance.

But there are also intruders on the dance floor: our confused ego and misguided entities that continually try and distract us from paying attention to our steps. We have to become aware of how they operate and learn how to neutralise them. It’s the first major task in the process of change. Once we reach a stage where distractions thrown at us by the ego and misguided entities no longer make us trip everything becomes easier and much more fluid. We receive subtle energy through guidance from Presence. Fear, anxiety, anger and frustration are massively reduced. We’re able to start getting rid of our addictions. The law of attraction begins to serve us well. Synchronicities appear more evident; we perceive them and learn to respond to their messages. Self confidence and gratitude rise in our body-mind-soul. We are more lucid about what goes on in the material world but no longer get into a panic about it, no matter what fresh crises turn up on the screen.

None of this is an intellectual construct. The intellect knows hardly anything essential. Our intuition must be given the freedom to sense and experiment. Intuition isn’t restricted to the mind. It involves every aspect of us from conscious thoughts to physical sensations. From dreams to lucid dreams and silent impressions. Our key assumption about reality is that it is one, continuous, interacting flow of infinite energy and consciousness. And we have to trust it all. Trust its fundamental harmony and benevolence.
