The Real Armageddon: Learning how to be Alone!


You have to do this alone! If you want to liberate yourself from the trap of the temporal illusory hologram, you have to learn how to be alone. When I say alone – I mean literally, absolutely, physically and mentally alone.


Here’s the eternal Secret of the Ages:

For at the very least 3 days isolate yourself, preferably in Nature. For 3 days remain totally alone – no people, no family, no lovers, no close friends, no drugs or alcohol, no meat, no telephone calls, NO TV!, no radio, no internet or computer, no newspapers or magazines, etc. Unplug!


For 3 days stay alone! Teach yourself to withdraw your energy from the external illusory reality and detach your consciousness from the five senses. Remain in meditation for as long as you possible can.


Get ready for the Battle of your Life! This is the real Armageddon – the one that rages within! Your GUNAS are going to do everything they can to hold on to you. Remember that everything is God/IS-ness and therefore the GUNAS themselves are also God. In fact IS-ness created the GUNAS to bind ITSELF within the illusion of this polarity based hologram. Ask the God-within you for help, for GRACE.


Your stubborn persistence in the face of an all out assault by the five senses will be living proof to the God-within you that you are ready for GRACE, ready to move beyond the bonds of the illusion. If you feel or see demons or other unpleasant energies, brush them away as illusions – that’s all they are!


You will be amazed at how desperate you become to feed the small identity-self’s ego. A zillion thoughts will trample through your brain urging you back to your habitual compulsions. This will be the moment you begin to learn something about yourself – this will be the real test of your courage. Nothing you have ever done in your life will be as difficult as this process of learning to be alone. Nothing can really prepare you except an unquenchable desire for the Truth and for Liberation (JIVAN MUKTI) from Illusion. Truly you must want this more than ANYTHING else.


When you are at your wits end, and you will be, you can use inspiring music – music that is uplifting and has a higher consciousness, music without words to stick in your head. I recommend Mozart, Chopin, and Indian RAGAS, whatever resonates with your own being. Learn to listen to sound as waveforms, sound as singular tones of a specific frequency. Float in water in the dark, go for walks alone and look up at the sky, follow the night’s gentle shadows and watch the stars move across the heavens, smell the cedar & pine trees, stretch your weary body out on the earth, hold the dirt in your hands. And you sing! Use tones to focus. OM is excellent. Experiment – the God-within will guide you.


Take with you the Bhagavad Gita, the original writings of Lao Tzu, or the work of the Sufi poet Rumi – or all three. When your noisy mind is harassing you with torrential nonsense, read these works over and over. They have a frequency of higher consciousness and will lift you into truth even if you don’t yet understand them. I have been reading the Bhagavad Gita for 30 years now and I am only just beginning to understand its timelessly profound meaning.


Unless you were born enlightened – and then you probably wouldn’t be reading this – it is almost impossible for anyone to begin to access their inner-world surrounded by the constant distraction of other human beings.


Every day in every moment you are being bombarded by the GUNAS as waveforms emitted from the temporal illusory holograms of everyone around you. The small personality selves of the people you know and love, or hate, are incessantly mixing with your own – until most of us have no idea where our thoughts come from, meaning we don’t know if a thought is our own or coming from someone else.


This includes the media in a monster way! These machines possess the power to emit waveforms that permeate your consciousness. Therefore it is crucial to unplug these frequency emitters in order to establish a tender subtle connection to your own Within.  Especially the TV - and after you become more sensitive, you will realize that your television emits a waveform that effectively entrains you into a specific state of consciousness – more a state of unconsciousness, I would say, designed to leave you feeling insecure, mildly fearful, and ready to go out and buy things you don’t need to pad your comfort zone.


You will not have to become a hermit forever, just now and then. I realize that many of you have families, beloved ones, and adored children. But if you really want to give the ones you love something that is truly valuable, something that will endure, something eternal - then give them your higher consciousness!


Learning to be alone will at first seem like the worst poison, but after a time it will turn into the sweetest Divine Nectar you ever tasted.


Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita:

“…at first seems like poison but as it matures is like Elixir, the happiness which springs from the serenity of one’s own Spirit.”  40[18].37
