Now continues a story that has existed since the dawn of our species.
It has been called many names by many tribes and peoples:
“The Great Work”
“The Quest For The Holy Grail”
“The Search For Shamballah”
Here in 2020, we hear talk of a “great awakening” or some version of a “heaven-on-earth” scenario. However, amid possibilities for nuclear war, pandemics, mass quarantines, economic disasters, police brutality, and civil unrest, such talk can be hard to believe. Stories or prophecies of a near-apocalypse seem far more likely. Fortunately, the treasure troves of history are filled with prophecies that never came to pass.
Underneath the veil of our world has lain hidden a powerful truth: the individual has more ability to create mass change than we have been taught.
You, dear reader, have more power, creativity, and opportunity than you ever realized. Here in 2020, this is more true than at any other moment in history. All that is required is for me and you to claim that destiny on behalf of ourselves and everyone else.
Deep in the heart of every human lies a powerful message: We are meant for more inside of our lives, a better world is possible, and it is achievable within our lifetimes.
Today, that message is hard to receive. Even though every aspect of our world contrives to tear down that message, we feel it inside of our personal interactions, our walks in nature, intimate moments with our spouse or kids, chats with our best friends, and our shared community values. Inside of 2020, it is possible to re-awaken this fire that has laid sleeping since we were born.
Why is a plan of any sort required for this to happen? At the end of the day, plans are just ideas humans have created and articulated to a great detail so they can move towards personal or shared goals. If the goal involves starting any sort of collective movement towards a better reality, then having a rallying banner is important. Without such a plan of action, we are little more than a mob of angry scavengers looking for someone to blame. Armed with a concise strategy, we become an organized movement capable of holding accountable incompetent elected leaders.
Sound like an overwhelming task? It can start small and it begins inside of your own personal life. My intent is to provide you with a playbook of ways in which you can help improve the world and bring about a better reality for yourself, your family, and your community.
Instead of dabbling in hippy woohoo talk of angels, demons, and prophecies related to the ending or saving of the world, I want to conduct our work strategically, logically, and practically. There is much work to be done in higher levels of reality but those energies are currently manifesting themselves in the form of this book which you are reading. By utilizing this playbook, you can serve to become a conduit for this cosmic force of change that is influencing our world. It is time to become a catalyst. Instead of running from our demons and inventing new excuses for why the world is falling apart, it is time for us to take a stand inside of our own lives. The real “Grassroots Resistance” or revolution begins in the quiet of your own home, within the deep work of creativity and innovation.
The true message of this book is simple: You have far more ability than you could have imagined. This ability and ingenuity has been stifled by a system that was outside of your control at the time of your birth. However, here in 2020, we have a shared opportunity to empower one another towards the achievement of our own personal goals.
My hypothesis is that we will find those goals are mostly shared and that, at the end of the day, all of us want the same things out of life. By working from this basic level of understanding, we can unleash a massive renaissance inside of entrepreneurship, creativity, and ingenuity that can heal our species and save the world. Through the power of education, community, and personal effort, much can be achieved in a relatively short amount of time.
We exist at a moment in history that has never existed before. Our species has never had the arsenal of technologies, world philosophies, spiritual teachings, and connection tools that exist today.
To give an insight into what I am saying, we are simultaneously experiencing massive evolutions in multiple different avenues of our civilization. On the one hand, the internet continues to move forward the powerful of technology. It has led to the invention of artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, augmented reality, virtual reality, and much more. On the other hand, medicine is advancing to provide gene altering, collagen regeneration, artificial limbs, 3D printed organs, and a deeper understanding of diseases like cancer, AIDs, coronavirus, and more. While these massive renaissances are happening in tech and medicine, we see more new entrepreneurs in the world than has existed for hundreds of years. Thanks to the power of the internet, millions of people are able to start businesses more easily which has led to more financial freedom, location-independent living, and fulfillment. Due to all of this, we have experienced a massive increase in communication and travel between countries for all sorts of reasons. As our world becomes more of a global network, we begin to merge into a new form of human unlike anything our ancestors could have imagined.
Our world has become globally connected in a way that could never have happened at any moment in history. Do you understand how rare this is? It is so rare that it has never happened before. We have yet to begin seeing the real implications of a completely connected world. I write this book in Missouri and you might read it in Asia or Europe after purchasing it through an online “website” (whatever that means). As a result of this massive increase in connection, we have begun to share philosophies, religious teachings, and esoteric traditions across borders like never before. By finding the common denominators across all those different teachings, we might finally find some truth within our own lives from a spiritual perspective. Suddenly, amidst a massive renaissance inside of technology and medicine, we see a resurgence in ancient teachings and personal spiritual practices. Meanwhile, quietly in the background of all these events, acting as an increasingly louder influence, live the psychedelic plants and substances which have been involved in shaping our world for thousands of years.
All of these disciplines are connected. They are all one message and one story. Our world exists as a sort of cosmic event and there is a new story emerging onto the scene, shaping uninterrupted despite current events. It is a story of hope, innovation, interconnectedness, and empathy. It is the feeling inside of our chests that speaks to the possibility that such a world can exist. To turn this feeling into reality, we must become more concrete. It is time to mobilize and create a leaderless movement; a self-sustaining organism or network that exists in plain site.
This book is not meant to be my master plan to save the world, readable by others. Instead, this is meant to be your playbook for your own personal master plan to save the world. Later on, I will share a proposed plan to help you see what I am getting after but ultimately I am not here to dictate to you the best way ahead from your own vantage point. Given enough thought and hard-work, you can invent a much better solution for your life and the lives of others in your local community than I ever could from here in my office in Missouri. I am not you. However, I can certainly help provide a framework to get you started and on your way. At the end of the day, there will come a time where you will have to put down the books, pause Netflix, walk over to your computer, and finally get to work on that empire you have been dreaming up in your head. If that day is not today, then no worries. Keep on reading.
Here is the “master plan” put simply: If all of us create our own “save the world” plan and then meet together in person or online, we just might find that our plans are quite similar. Through a bit of organization, intuition, and guidance, we might find ourselves able to create quite a bit within this world. Using the power of connection, we can accomplish much. By doing so, we engage in what has been called “The Great Work” for thousands of years. In that vein, the message of this book is to take action and find the truth for yourself. Stop waiting for a leader to magically appear on the November elections.
“The Great Work” has been written about by Manly Hall quite extensively. Inside of his works, Hall describes the “Orders of the Quest” and “The Orders of the Great Work” as all the various universal organizations that work together towards the preservation and teaching of the “secret teachings of all ages”. What are these “secret teachings” in particular?
In a nutshell, most of these organizations practiced some version of Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Neo-Platonism, or mystical tradition. Generally speaking, they preached some version of the “doctrine of emanation”; the teaching that humans create their reality through mental creation, manifestation, and a process of internal transmutation. Why is this the case? According to the secret teachings, it is because all of reality is a living organism, a collective hive mind, or an “infinite living mind”.
Before I continue down this rabbit hole, I want to be clear:
I am not here to convince you of anything. However, based on what I have read from plenty of long-passed ancestral writers similar to me, they were not trying to convince anyone either.
These teachings were meant to be applied, tested, and understood within the confines of a person’s life. If we are speaking about the topic of creating your own reality, the only way to see “if it is real” is to go out and attempt to create your reality.
Based on what myself and many others have experienced, you might be surprised what you find.
Inside the context of this book, I share this information only to provide my inspiration for the text. May those who have eyes see and those who have ears hear.
Humans have far more power than we realized. It has been starring us in the face all along. Thanks to the power of the internet, we can organize and help one another figure this out. With a strong enough network, our call to action can emanate the new world we all envision.
We create what we already are. In order to get started towards a better reality, it is time to start fresh. We must confront the demons of our old world and win those battles, once and for all.
This book is your playbook to constructing a “master plan” to save yourself, before you save anyone else. By serving as an example inside of your community, you can inspire change and become a fellow catalyst for human evolution. The time is now, wait another and it might pass.
The universe conspires in our benefit. Obstacles provide opportunities. There is a plan to change our reality, if only we allow it in.
As I write this chapter, the protests around George Floyd’s death are raging. The coronavirus continues to influence our world. Millions have filed for unemployment. Sitting here in the middle of nowhere Missouri, I ask myself how I can be of better service. The world is full of evidence suggesting our system is broken. All around me, people are asking for organization and leadership in any form. Our current leaders have seemingly failed. Regardless, they are absent as ever from our day-to-day lives.
When I started writing this book, the coronavirus was just beginning to spread here in the USA. We had just entered the beginnings of a vague lock down. Over the process of writing this work, the world has proved more than ever that a new system is necessary. The premise of this book is that such a renaissance is more than possible: it is already underway.
The renaissance in question is personal choice and responsibility. While our Founding Fathers fought for the rights of the individual to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we can seek to ensure that a level of equality, justice, and fairness is achieved at every level of society.
Our economic systems have failed. Capitalism has resulted in mass instability and scarcity within our civilization at-scale. Finding a solution requires a new creation. Rather than attempting to revive old communist or socialist agendas that smack of corruption and ineffectiveness, let us seek to discover something new. A new way is possible.
The world might appear to be a hyper-dangerous place at the moment. However, reality is more nuanced. People are becoming hyper aware of all the problems that have been facing our world for generations… and it is happening all at once, largely because of the proliferation of the internet.
It is human evolution at work. We are expanding our consciousness and awareness through this expansion of connection at-scale. We are becoming one collective hive mind while still finding how to maintain individuality and personal freedoms. It is a confusing time, to say the least…
The old must be transmuted into the new. First step in solving a problem is admitting you have a problem.
It’s a time of mass initiation.
I believe we will make it to the other side collectively. However, It is up to WE THE PEOPLE to demand better of our world. It has ALWAYS been up to us.
You and me. Not some old, tired, and disconnected individual wearing a suit in Washington DC, masquerading as our “representative.”
It begins with taking responsibility and realizing that we are giving away our power and consent to those we thought had our best interests in mind. We elected the majority of our leaders and trusted that they were moral and upstanding citizens. Although many folks sitting in Washington D.C. are working in our favor, there are plenty who seem to act through only selfish ambition. In many cases, these elected leaders have appointed or created shadowy organizations filled with individuals the people did not elect. For instance: the CIA director is not elected, but appointed by the president. We have created a shadow government of agencies, corporations, and generals who stand behind our elected officials, whispering in their ear. Our current model enables these actions that takeaway freedoms and choices from the American people.
Such a system has not stood the tests of time. Thankfully, new tools and resources are available inside of our 2020 landscape. We need only realize the best strategies and tactics and then begin implementation.
We are realizing the power of one individual to bring about mass change. It only takes one police officer to start mass protests. It only takes one protestor to turn that protest into a riot. It only takes one viral video of a police officer unreasonably pepper spraying people to incite more rage in a separate part of the world.
Luckily, we have a choice: we can choose how to respond to social problems.
We can choose to get swept up in the collective emotional swings, perpetuated by the mainstream media… or we can choose to be in control of our personal emotions. We can choose to observe and learn rather than judge. We can choose to make our own conclusions, rather than accepting whatever is on social media or the news. We can take back our power, beginning in the mind.
We are the co-creators of this reality we all experience together.
Let us choose to be better catalysts.
The new heaven on earth is here and it exists within us all. I believe we are collectively embracing and receiving that inheritance. All of nature cries out for a new story. If Jesus Christ were to return, he probably would come as a collective energy that we all might feel inside our hearts. The metaphorical “Holy Ghost” perhaps serves as a representation for our own inner fire, the Holy Grail inside. By tapping into that energy inside ourselves, we might create heaven. We do not need to wait for Jesus to descend from the skies to give us permission to begin loving each other unconditionally. We can start loving each other more today.
Right now is messy and scary but it is all a part of healing.
We are diagnosing the collective issues that we have denied for generations.
Let us remember this axiom from the Kybalion:
“Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the master.”
Transmutation means change. It is the alchemical process that has existed since the dawn of time. As a person changes their base states into purity, they evolve internally and create a new world for themselves and their posterity. Let us transmute and change our anger into peace, our hate into love, and our ignorance into wisdom.
We are all humans in this together. There are wonderful people and evildoers on BOTH sides of every “team”.
It is time to highlight these evil-doing individuals on both sides of the protest or party line and begin to discuss the best way to ensure they no longer do any harm to our civilization.
I think we will find that those people we label “evil doers” need help in some form. They might be suffering from a long history of mental health conditions. Likely, they struggled to achieve within their life. Inside their world, they are a victim in some form.
Maybe they’ve spent a lifetime in poverty, subject to a system that does not work in their favor? Given the chance, rioting might seem like the best viable option. Are they correct in that logic? NO. However, we must seek to understand why THEY think they are correct. Otherwise, we will never stop riots from happening.
Or maybe this “evil doer” is a police officer who didn’t receive proper training? In the USA, our police training systems are completely inadequate compared to most of the developed world. This lack of training combined with a lack of accountability has resulted in racist and immoral police officers infiltrating police forces all over our nation. Our police force has abandoned their standards and failed in their responsibility to police one another. This has resulted in unqualified and ignorant individuals passing the initiations of their organization and becoming police officers.
When this individual gets into a stressful situation, they overreact and get scared. Under that pressure, they snap and suddenly become a viral video. Does this excuse their behavior? NO. However, we must seek to understand why this “officer of the law” thought their life was in danger, even when it was clearly not.
Why are so many of our police officers living in constant fear? Shouldn’t they be bastions of courage and community stability? Although plenty of those officers exist in our world, there seem to be plenty of undertrained individuals who are clearly unfit for service, for some reason.
Why do we have so many untrained police? Why do cops in the USA go through a six-ish month boot camp while those in Germany attend a three year academy?
These are just a few examples of systematic issues that go FAR beyond what most news outlets want you to know. It is time to say goodbye to the global military industrial complex, police brutality, news outlets that divide and fail to report truth, dictatorial leaders, riots, broken money systems, racism, sexism, and a whole lot more.
We must demand and then create a new system.
It is up to us.
It has ALWAYS been up to us.
Let us choose wisely. Let us choose personal responsibility for our world. Let us choose the path of love.
It is time to begin achieving within our own lives so that we can pave a new way forward for our posterity. It is time to make those ideas in the backs of our minds a reality. This book does not seek to create one “master plan” that will work for all peoples but rather to empower and exemplify how YOU, the reader, can create your own master plan to bring about change inside of your own life or at-scale.
The time is now to get started towards creating a better world. It starts with you and me doing what we can to improve ourselves, our families, and our communities.
By uniting together through the power of the internet, we can create a global network of those who are striving in the name of this great work. We are more connected than at any other time in history, by a long shot.
My hypothesis is we will arrive at similar conclusions for how to begin changing our world. This book serves to begin a conversation that I hope we might continue online or in-person.
Our world is more connected than ever before and it is only becoming more profound.
Let us get to work.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
On these pages come the next great plan for mankind.
Instead of a system that serves only a select few, let us have universal brother/sister-hood and unity that works for everyone through a system of meritocracy. Rather than give-in to a socialist safety net, communist values, or any other failed form of economics, we shall strive to co-create a system wherein hard work, disciplined effort, and quality of character are the only means by which a human being earns their way. However, this system cannot come about through the means of capitalism. We have seen throughout the pages of history that capitalism left alone cannot stand under the weight of pressure.
Our global economics are fragile because they provide no easy means by which the last can become first. Meanwhile, the “first” have their path set before them and their hands held as they navigate their often inherited fortunes. Although it is not morally admonishable to inherit great wealth, it must be considered that a truly just and fair society cannot exist if the “least of these” in our civilization are left unaccounted for inside of the system. We must prioritize those who have been left disadvantaged by the bloody pages of history. I am not referring necessarily to direct reparations or any other form of monetary payment. What we must do instead is structure society in such a way that it takes into account socio economic conditions that were created and instituted during less enlightened eras of civilization. For instance, in many inner cities around the United States of America, there are communities that still live under the effects of Civil Rights Era laws. In Baltimore, city busses do not run to certain neighborhoods because these were traditionally segregated as minority communities. These bus routes have not been updated to reflect our new views about race. Another example: Native American communities still suffer under unjust property laws enacted hundreds of years ago. For these minority groups, the weight of laws created by our ignorant ancestors are still felt today.
The critic might say here “Of course! These individuals can still pull themselves up by their bootstraps and succeed inside of America! In fact, the USA is one of the best places to start a business, go from rags-to-riches, and make a name for yourself! Don’t make excuses, take action!”
I agree with this critic more than they might think. Ultimately, it is indeed the individual’s responsibility to work hard, create their own way, and seize opportunity inside of their own lives. However, it is foolish to deny that these individuals are seriously disadvantaged compared to an individual born white, wealthy, and well-fed inside of suburban America.
Imagine two individuals born with relatively equal ambitions and natural talents: one individual is born in the suburbs outside of Washington DC. The second individual is born thirty minutes away, inside of inner-city Baltimore. Although both individuals arrived here on Earth with the same talents, ambitions, genetic hard-wiring, and language, they are in vastly different starting positions inside of the “game of life” despite being born only thirty minutes apart. The same scenario happens every day in and around cities all over the world: the richest members of society are oftentimes born only miles away from those who find themselves living in the gutters. As we have seen time and time again, such a scenario can lead to eventual violent revolution, political turmoil, civil war, global pandemics, and a host of other “worst case scenarios”. Why? Because the scenario we find ourselves in with capitalism is ultimately unsustainable. It is a barrel keg primed for eventual self-destruction.
The question is ultimately a matter of resources. Imagine this hypothetical scenario: you and a few friends are playing a board game. This game involves collecting and expending resources (Imagine “Monopoly”). You both start at the same spot on the board. However, inside of this game, there is a special rule: one player at random starts with 10x as much money as the others. This player also gets to move first. Any time this player runs out of money, the bank gives him a quick and easy loan. If that is not enough, this player is also coached by some of the best Monopoly coaches and strategists in the world while the other players have only the rulebook and a strategy guide. Why? He got lucky and was born into a wealthy family.
The only way the other players have a chance of winning the game is if the lucky player is lazy, an idiot with their money, or extremely generous and charitable to others (which oftentimes happens!).
Now, there is an important element to consider: in life, a person born into a wealthy family did not arrive by accident. Likely, their parents or grandparents or great-great-grandparents worked extremely hard, generated a family fortune, and (of course) shared their wealth with their beloved children and grandchildren. There is nothing wrong with this system and wealth generation is an admirable goal for any family with ambitions of great legacy and long-term success.
Of course, there are countless individuals who have pulled themselves from the gutters of society all the way to the top. Indeed, many of the wealthiest and most impactful individuals in history are in this category. It is easy to find examples of individuals who overcame extreme adversity and disparity only to create massive generational wealth that can last for centuries.
Here is the issue with this model: such families and individuals are in the overwhelming minority.
The average person, for whatever reason, is not able to climb to this peak of the totem pole. For most people living in modern civilization, such ambitions are the makings of the documentaries and movies they watch on Netflix after working their shitty and unfulfilling job. If we are thinking about “Average Joe/Jane”, they are typically lightyears away from where they want to be financially. Due to our current system of capitalism, this financial un-fulfillment often equates to an unhappy and unfulfilling life because money is required to succeed inside of a purely capitalist system.
Why this disparity of personality? Why are some driven and called to become entrepreneurs, pro athletes, or movies stars while most never voice any such ambition? Why do some rise from the bottoms of society and rise to achieve greatness, while most never leave their socioeconomic conditions?
If we want to create a fair and just society, we need to answer these questions. If we want our systems of living in harmony to make sense, we have to learn from mistakes of the past. In order to provide equal opportunity for all humanity, let us strive to innovate new systems of sustainability rather than resorting to failed systems of government or economics.
The answer to the question of this disparity of opportunity is complex and nuanced. It involves re-thinking education, economics, food distribution, taxation, law enforcement, drug policies, foster systems, and a whole lot more. It is a multi-faceted plan with many faces.
However, at the end of the day, it is a plan like any other. It can have a date of execution, achievable goals, a timeline, and checkpoints along the way.
This is the stated mission and intent of this document:
To co-create with all fellow thinkers and seekers a plan to manifest a truly just and fair system whereby humans can live together in peace, harmony, and opportunity.
In order for this plan to succeed, the “plan” must first exist.
Based on what we have seen from history on the planning of civilizations, it cannot be done alone.
If one individual tried to create a system wherein all can live equally, they are most likely to create a system that would work best for themselves; forgetting that “other people are people too”.
In order to create a truly sustainable plan for mankind, it must be co-created from as many wise perspectives as possible. The planning committee must include and consult with experts in economics, civilization-planning, political structures, eduction, religious structures, law enforcement, food production, distribution, banking, and an enormous amount of other systems.
However, always with the eyes and ears to see where all these systems overlap with each other.
Ultimately, all our systems of government, education, military, law enforcement, economics, and more all serve to answer the same basic question:
How can humans best live together in peace, harmony, and opportunity?
We are still working collectively to best answer that question. Amid our current crisis in 2020, it is clear our current course is set for disaster. In order to create “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible”, we must do this ourselves. Rather than wait for old politicians to fix our world, it is in the hands of the people once again to enact their destiny upon the Earth.
In the asking of this question, we must be ruthless. We must devoid ourselves of anything that is a relic of the old story. Rather than accepting that certain systems “must exist”, we should question everything. Let us heed the skeptic’s wisdom and assume that we know nothing unless it is proven through personal and collective experience. If a certain system of society is deemed unnecessary (for instance: current models of education), it shall be removed from this plan.
We do not seek to model or copy an older system but rather discover something new.
In the same way that humans discovered fire, steel, agriculture, electricity, germs, or any other pivotal discovery that changed the face of the world, let us discover a new way to live together.
By very definition of our pursuit, we should not look for examples of this system in the troves of history. By nature of our pursuit, history can only be looked at for examples of systems that do not work properly. As Charles Eisenstein wrote, “the master’s tools cannot destroy the master’s house”.
Instead, we should utilize the tools we have today in 2020 to manifest something new inside of our day-to-day lives. This is a hands-on process that cannot happen through speculation and inaction. Now is a time for deeds, not words.
However, some words must certainly precede deeds so that we can organize, create a philosophy, and decide on next-steps.
Leaders are planners.
However, planning and acting can be symbiotic actions. For example, as I write this document to flush out my own thoughts on the matter, I am also creating content for my blog, putting words to paper (or, well, Google Doc) so I can share with others, and attempting to establish a way by which we can achieve this universal goal. Action and planning should be done together. Masculine and feminine working as one.
Here are the next steps as I see them:
- Find others who are thinking along the same lines as those who are working on this plan.
- Invite them to join an online Think-tank where we can all plan together.
- Co-create a plan utilizing means of communicating over technology.
- Once long-term plan is created, break it down into shorter goals.
- Decide on yearly, quarterly, monthly, and weekly goals to achieve together.
- Get to work and achieve goals.
I have taken the liberty of creating the online Think-Tank and we are recruiting new members.
