Inner Peace and the Old Game of Ego

Transcript

We are born into this world as slaves of capitalism, and we are not free. In exchange for food, clothing, shelter, and other basic human rights as our current technology allows, we are forced to work for what should be ours by birthright. We are citizens of this planet, and our freedom has been held ransom by a fear-based belief system.

I often feel like a time traveler who has come back to a world that is still at war, filled with so much chaos and suffering. This is not the way humanity is supposed to live. People say that drama and adversity is human nature, but it is not. It is fear-based conditioning, the illusion of separation.

There is never a righteous reason for war or inequality. That is only a product of greed and disease, and that is a learned behavior, an indoctrinated belief system.

Humanity’s true nature is peaceful and utopian. It is what our species is meant for.

The 3D game is based on abundance versus scarcity. Success versus failure. It is dualistic, but true human nature is not dualistic.

Inner peace is simple. There is no drama, no suffering, no need or want. When you are in a state of inner peace, you are satisfied with simply being, existing as you are.

But that’s not what we’re taught. We’re taught that we are imperfect beings and that something external is the answers to our problems. We are not taught to be satisfied with who we are as individuals. There is always some material want or accomplishment to achieve, because we, by ourselves, are never good enough.

Well, I’m telling you that we are good enough. Those other things are luxuries. They do not make us who we are as people.

And once you can understand this concept for yourself, you will see the dualistic game of abundance versus scarcity disappear, because it will not have a hold on you any longer. You will not be its prisoner, and you will have access to a whole new game to play, one based on fun, rather than achievement.

I remember back in high school I played JV baseball and ended up with the highest batting average on the team at the end of the season, but I quit the team after that year, because, despite my success, I didn’t have fun. Playing baseball went from being my greatest joy to a chore, and all of the fun was sucked right out of it, because it was more about winning than actually playing the game. And once I realized that, I knew it was time for me to let it go, because what was once just a game that was played for fun turned into a pissing match of egos, even to the point of fights breaking out on the field. These men who were supposed to act like adults were still children inside, and it’s no different off the field in the real world.

Whether its politics or business or war, men and women who are supposed to be adults are still children inside, because they’ve never moved on from the old game, the pissing match of egos, and unfortunately these people are the ones who have the most control over the countries of this planet, as they are the ones who seek power the most.

A cruel joke, isn’t it?

We ask, where are all the good people? Why are all the people in leadership positions always rotten and corrupt? Because the good people don’t seek power over others. They don’t desire conquest, because that is not human nature. As I said, human nature is inner peace, it is to be good, not to be a conqueror or tyrant. And thus, this is how we’ve ended up in the situation that we’re in today. The best murderers in the world are the ones in charge of our countries. They don’t care about their people, because if they did, the major problems of the world would have been solved decades ago or never have existed in the first place.

But I don’t want to stray off topic here. I want to keep things simple, because it really is simple. Inner peace is freedom. It is the only salvation on a planet full of chaos and suffering. Find inner peace, and everything else will pale in comparison. You will find that the luxuries you used to care so much about are no longer attractive to you, and the inner silence of meditation and nature are much more pleasant, however, I must warn you: the further you progress on the spiritual path, the more difficult it will be to live in modern culture, since you will naturally become more sensitive as you deprogram yourself from the indoctrination of the Matrix that has been conditioned into you since birth.

This heightened sensitivity will likely result in you not wanting to participate in modern society any more, and this is difficult to deal with, which is why I always say that becoming awakened is both a gift and a curse. It is a gift because you are no longer asleep, but it is a curse because you can never go back to being ignorant again. You can never unsee the truth of the situation in the world, that humanity is a slave race and Earth is a prison planet. That is the silent war, the spiritual war that we must fight and conquer within ourselves, and it is the source of our existential crisis and suffering, because we lie to ourselves every day. We say, this is the way that it is, and there’s nothing we can do about it. We say, not in my backyard. But here’s the thing? We can’t lie to ourselves. We can’t really turn a blind eye to suffering, because we are all connected. We are a part of nature, and just like a human body, when one part of the body is in pain, the whole body suffers. We don’t say, well I have a headache but my arm feels fine, therefore I’m okay. No, we say, I have a headache, so I’m in pain.

If a child suffers across the globe, that suffering is yours too, because that’s a part of you out there. This is what we’ve become disconnected from, because we lie to ourselves. We tell ourselves everything is fine, because our personal situations are fine, but that isn’t accurate. That is irresponsible. The planet is not okay. We as a species are not okay. We are sick, and we need to fix what is broken. We need to become connected again. We need to care about each other again. This is how we change the world, and it has to start now.

We cannot fail like previous generations did. They were weak. They allowed themselves to become co-opted, indoctrinated, and assimilated. We are better than them. We have the technology that they didn’t with the Internet, and we have no excuse. We have to create a better world for our children. We cannot allow injustice and suffering to continue. We are stronger than ever before, and it’s time for society to change, but first we must each find inner peace. We must heal ourselves and deprogram ourselves from our conditioned beliefs.

Thank you for listening.

Where I’ve Been and What’s Coming Next

Transcript

Hello everyone, my name is Skyler Newman, and I’m the founder of Freedom Earth, and in this video I just wanted to reintroduce myself to the community, since I’ve been away for a while, and let you know what I’ve been up to and what I plan on doing next.

For those who are not aware of how Freedom Earth began, in the summer of 2011 I started to experience what I can only describe as a spiritual awakening, which led me to seek answers online to better understand what was happening to me. This led me to Dr. Georgi Stankov’s website, stankovuniversallaw.com, where I found a plethora of information on what he calls the light body process or what is more commonly referred to as the ascension process in the New Age community.

This spiritual awakening experience involved having intense lucid dreams, out of body experiences, and a drive to disconnect and deprogram myself from the conditioning of the modern world. This affected my life dramatically, and caused me to experience an entire paradigm shift in my view of reality, as I sought answers to the big questions of life and a deeper understanding of who I was and what exactly I was doing here.

Going down the rabbit hole took me on an alternative path to the life I had been leading before, and the name Freedom Earth came to me one day with a strong impulse to take action and start an online community with others who were also going through the awakening process.

So, in late 2011 I started the Freedom Earth subreddit at reddit.com/r/freedomearth, and and a few months later I started a blog at freedomearth.org where I wrote about my experiences and did outreach with the online community.

Fast forward now to 2014, which was when I decided to explore the intentional communities movement in Virginia as a member of Acorn Community, which is the sister community of Twin Oaks, the largest and oldest active intentional community in the region. While I was there, I gained a lot of firsthand experience about how intentional communities are run, and spent time visiting several other communities of different structures and sizes in the area.

After I left Acorn later that year, I decided to move to Washington DC to work on the Basic Income Project and participate in activism events in a cell of Anonymous. Ultimately, I decided to leave DC to pursue other work, and while I learned a lot from my time with these groups, I found that what they were offering was simply not what I was looking for. I commend the people of these groups for their efforts, but personally I think the real answer lies in education and self development.

Both Anonymous and the intentional communities revolved around anarchism, which is not an effective system in my opinion. Strong leadership and a central vision were sorely lacking in both of those groups, as well as effective recruitment, which is common for these types of organizations.

Furthermore, I found that protesting, while it creates a lot of noise and attention, is an ineffective way to create change in the world, and lobbying is the way to go, if changing legislation is your ultimate goal.

So, after spending a lot of time in the world of activism and alternative living, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue doing this work, and for a while I was committed to pursuing other things. But ultimately, I knew deep down that this work is what I know I have to do, and so, after taking a lot of time to meditate on my past experiences I realized that the core problem in those movements was the same problem with the rest of the world that I always knew from the beginning, that The people of planet Earth are simply not ready to evolve to the next level of consciousness as a galactic society and need more education.

And I sincerely ask for you not to take this message in the wrong way. This is not an insult, nor a claim that I am someway superior to anyone else. It is simply a conclusion that I’ve drawn that more people need to put in the personal work to deprogram themselves from their past traumas, emotional issues, and fear-based conditioning in order for the species to progress in its development.

I am here serving as a guide and messenger to deliver information to the people of planet Earth that if you want real change to occur, the only way it can is through spiritual development. Attempting to change the system from within will not create a paradigm shift. While progress is certainly being made through legislation, the only way the major problems of the world will be resolved is through humanity growing up and becoming a more evolved species.

This means letting go of superficial ideals that do not serve you. This means learning how to master your emotions and live without the burden of material attachment. I am telling you from experience that happiness cannot be found through desire. It is only through pursuing your passions and being in your element that you will find true satisfaction.

For example, true happiness cannot be found via the pursuit of money, fame, or status, but only through personal passions such as performance for those who are natural performers, like singers, dancers, actors, etc. It is in the act of utilizing your skills to the utmost extent and unleashing your full potential that you will find the happiness that you desire.

And look, I know that there is always the voice in the back of your head that is telling you to be realistic, telling you that life is difficult, and that is the source of your suffering. When you allow yourself to let go of your false notions and perceived limitations, you will find your personal power and the freedom to experience joy in life.

Okay, I’m going to stop this video here, but in the future, I will be creating more videos and other educational materials. Thank you watching, and I’ll see you next time.

My Prophetic Dream from Last September Vindicated in TV Show Mr. Robot

NOTE: This post contains spoilers from the TV show Mr. Robot. If you don’t want anything spoiled for you, check out the pilot episode first and then read this post.

Quick update, everyone. This is pretty mind blowing, I’ve gotta say! I just watched the pilot episode of the new TV show Mr. Robot (which I highly recommend by the way), and in the show the main character Elliot gets invited to check out a black hat hacker hideout in Coney Island, strikingly similar to what I described seeing in my ascension update post on September 3, 2014. Here are some screenshots from the show:

vlc 2015-06-30 03-29-50-47
vlc 2015-06-30 03-33-55-65
vlc 2015-06-30 03-35-05-11

I was blown away when I saw this, as I immediately recalled the dream and had a weird sensation of deja vu.

I won’t discuss any more of the plot for you, since you should really see it for yourself, but it’s an incredibly bold and eye-opening show as it discusses the shadow forces in the world (aka the Illuminati) and bringing down the system via computer hacking.

The next episode airs on Wednesday, July 1st, so I’ll let you know if I come across anything else noteworthy.

Indiegogo Campaign Results and Next Steps

The Indiegogo campaign has ended, and we raised $575! Thank you very much to those who contributed, and we will be entering the pre-production stage for the perks materials next week. I will post more information both here and on the Indiegogo campaign page as we make progress.

As for the next steps, we have already purchased a projector for the dojo, and that has worked out very well. I am no longer residing in DC, although I will be working with Tristan to keep things moving at the dojo in the following weeks.

Lastly, I’ve been thinking a lot about doing more writing, as I have a lot to process from my time on the road over the past six months. A lot has happened, and I’ve changed and learned a lot from my experiences. I’m not the same person as I was before, so there is much to be said about the ascension process and life in general that I have to share.

More on the way soon. Stay tuned for more updates.

The Next Stage of the Freedom Earth Mission Starts Now! Help Us Raise $25K to Establish a Base Camp and Community Center for Artists, Activists, and Entrepreneurs in Washington D.C.

Happy New Year everyone! We’re starting 2015 with a bang, as we’ve just launched a new Indiegogo campaign to raise $25K for the next stage of our mission: to establish a base camp and community center for artists, activists, and entrepreneurs in Washington D.C. Here is the link to the campaign page on Indiegogo.

Freedom Earth started online, but now we want to take the fight for freedom to the streets by establishing a dedicated space for community members to unite together under one roof.

All funds that we raise will go toward purchasing new equipment and covering operational costs, such as registering Freedom Earth as a non-profit organization, and we need as much help as we can get to reach our goal, so please contribute if you can, and feel free to share this campaign with others.

Thanks, and happy holidays!

Ascension Update 11/7/2014

Hey everyone, a lot has happened since my last update in September. Previously I was residing at Acorn Community, an intentional community in Mineral, VA, but as of September 24th, I decided to depart from the community in order to pursue other opportunities, such as the Basic Income Project, which I discussed in my previous post.

At the moment I am staying in Arlington, VA with my comrade Tristan (jierdin on the Freedom Earth subreddit), and I am planning on moving in with him in early December. Once I’m there, Tristan and I will be starting work on Kadmon Dojo, a dojo for spiritual warriors to come train and work with us on the ascension mission.

On November 5th, Tristan and I attended the Million Mask March with Anonymous in the streets of D.C. as we protested for freedom and equality outside of the White House, Monsanto, and many other locations of authority and corruption in the area. We were joined by about 100 other people in the march. Below is a livestream to give you a sense of what it was like, and you can watch Tristan and I in the video starting at 28:36 (I’m in the red fleece holding a sign and Tristan is walking next to me on the right).

The protest ended up being a great success, as there were loads of police vehicles following the protest group around every corner. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and the people’s voice was definitely heard.

On another note, I am currently in the midst of starting a new apparel business with another member of the SRC, and there is a strong possibility that I will gain access to a large house in Columbia, MD that will be used as an office building for the new business, as well as for Freedom Earth/Kadmon Academy. I’ll keep you posted on this, but for the time being the plan is to work out of Tristan’s apartment in Arlington.

Lastly, as we progress forward in December and the new year, I will begin the process of establishing Freedom Earth as a non-profit organization, so that we can start developing the next stage of the mission, which is to establish a physical presence for the community.

We are hitting the system from all angles with everything we’ve got, and we are making great progress. I think 2015 will be an amazing breakthrough year for the fight for freedom.

P.S. Go see the documentary Awake about the life of Yogananda. It’s fantastic!

Introducing the Basic Income Project

What would you do if you had a basic income? Would you work at the same job, live in the same city, eat the same food, drive the same car?

Recently, I met Mark Witham, the founder of the Basic Income Project, and he asked me this same question, and as I listened to him share his vision of a world with basic income, a lightbulb went off in my head: Hey, I’ve thought of this same idea before!

Of course, I didn’t have the same name for it at the time, nor was I even aware that the concept of basic income already existed, but I was thinking of the same idea without even knowing it. As I thought about the current situation on the planet, and what we could as a people to create more freedom, I realized that the structure of our financial system was a major problem, and that if only each citizen could receive an ongoing unconditional income, then our global situation would change drastically, and many of these problems could be solved.

Is this just a fantasy? Could this ever truly happen? It’s easy to be skeptical, but when I found out about Mark and the Basic Income Project, I started to see a real possible solution unfolding before my eyes.

Is basic income the answer? There’s no way of knowing for sure, but I am willing to give it a shot, and Mark is the type of guy who I believe has the integrity and positive intention that is necessary to make this happen.

So, what is the Basic Income Project exactly?

Right now, the Basic Income Project is a mobile application available exclusively on the iPhone 4 or above with iOS5 or greater, and it’s currently in the beta stage. In the future, we are planning to expand its distribution to include both Android devices and web browsers.

What does it do, and how does it work? Here are the details from the Basic Income Project website:

Once you have registered for an account, a 300 “value” will be added to the balance of your account. This is done so that everyone who registers for an account starts off with a basic income. Each week, a 300 “value” will be added to your account (*basic income).

With this balance, you will be able to transfer to and receive from other people who have this app. An example of a transaction might be: you do work for a friend, they pay you directly from their account just by sending it to yours through the app. As long as both parties agree that it can be used to pay for services, products or labor. Hopefully, in time you will be able to buy produce from your farmer friends, goods from producers or hire someone for their labor. It takes people agreeing with this system for the benefits to really work.

But what do you mean by “value”? Is it money?

Basic income does not use any form of traditional physical currency it is a digital currency ( please refer to links above to learn more about digital currency ). However, we recognize that users need a “term” to distinguish what it is exactly that is placed into their digital wallet within the app. For this reason we refer to those “funds” as “value”. We may think of a more clever name in the future. Stay tuned. Door prize to someone who comes up with something really awesome. :)

Who could really start using this app?

  • Time Banks
  • Countries interested in promoting basic income as their social security.
  • Towns and Communities that print their own currency. e.g. http://www.berkshares.org/
  • Intentional Communities
  • A family could use it to trade internally for chores around the house. :)
  • Favors and exchanges between friends.

So, now that you know what the Basic Income Project is, here is how you can get involved:

If you’re interested in getting involved or learning more about the project, please feel free to get in touch.

Ascension Update 9/3/14

This morning I had an awesome prophetic dream that left me very excited and served as a sign of confirmation regarding the current developments in my ascension mission, specifically pertaining to Kadmon Academy.

In the lucid dream I was walking on the boardwalk in Coney Island, New York. I have never been to this place during this lifetime, but I heard that name in my head, and it fit the description of the locale, as there was an amusement park in the distance and it was an island type place with a sea of water and a beach.

Coney Island Boardwalk

I was walking to a place on the boardwalk that had little stands with yellow umbrellas covering them overhead and people gathered around each one conversing. I walked past all of the stands to the building ahead, and went down the stairs as I entered inside to which I saw a tech lab with hackers sitting at computer stations, and I heard the term “black hat heaven” in my head.

Skip forward to when I left the tech lab, and I’m now watching in third person as a large group of foot soldiers from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (a favorite franchise of mine as a kid in the 90’s) makes its way up the boardwalk in attack formation, like an approaching storm, as electronic music (like in one of the TMNT video games) blasts in the background.

tumblr_mb4auhOUJQ1qed4l7o1_1280

I see Leonardo from from the Ninja Turtles stand his ground and face the foot soldiers, engaging them in battle with furious cuts of his sword and brutal kicks, punches, and throws as he battles the small army one by one.

TMNT-cartoon

Soon he is overcome with enemy soldiers, though, unable to fight them individually, so he charges up his strength, then unleashes an epic tidal wave of water from his sword, as if it was summoned from the heavens, sending the remaining foot soldiers flying through the air. He is victorious, but he knows this was only the first of many fights that he must endure in the time ahead.

roof

If you are keeping up with other sources such as Georgi Stankov and GaiaPortal, you’ll see that their recent posts reflect this same chaotic movement and progression in the planetary energies, and I thought a recent email from a new contact of mine named Elohim X (who you will be hearing from much more soon) summed it up well:

Energies are truly running amok now… just as I planned or hoped, perhaps with others starting this incentive. It is the Now-or-never for both sides. The people living on the veil… I won’t spoil the fun, just read on GaiaPortal what happens to them now.The preceding day, I was hoping that the dark Elite would push their deeds to the limits, triggering more and more cracks till the avalanche can breakout, and that is exactly what I read in today’s update. Not truly an intuition, rather like a plan materializing.

Lastly, we will be holding the first online meeting for Kadmon Academy on Saturday, September 6th at 2:00 PM Eastern, so please let me know if you’re interested in attending. I think this dream and the recent posts by others confirm that we are on the right track, and I’m excited to see how the events unfold.

New Site for Kadmon Academy Now Online

I have thrown up a very basic website for Kadmon Academy at www.kadmonacademy.com, and I will be developing it more in the following days. If you’re interested in the project, please feel free to contact me, and we can talk about it more in-depth.

Obviously, this is still in the very beginning stages of development, but I am starting to work on it now, and I have a feeling it’s going to take off very quickly. I already have a possible lead for a location in Staten Island, New York that I’m going to investigate, and I will be working on the philosophy, curriculum, and other structural works of literature to start shaping this idea together into a more formal plan.

I’m completely open to hearing your ideas, and I would love for this to be a collaborative effort. I have set up a subscribe form in the sidebar, so you can get the latest news updates right away, as well as a donate page if you want to contribute some working capital to the project.

Every inspiring comment and conversation helps keep me going, so please feel free to speak up if you want to get involved. More news on the way soon!
