THE INCONVENIENCE THAT’S ME

Robert Althuis

It’s been said to placate is to do a disservice to society.

Albert Einstein famously said: “the world is in greater peril from those who tolerate or encourage evil than those who actually commit it” and Plato shared this wisdom over 2,500 years ago: “the price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

I’ve been ruffling some feathers lately with my recent social media posts so I wanted to clarify some things.

I am not here to ruffle feathers, get attention, be popular or liked. My mission is to help people awaken.

Awaken to what you might ask?

Awaken to the truth that all there is is love, this is why I sign everything Love & Truth.

The truth is not always convenient which makes me in turn inconvenient. Now, I don’t pretend to know the absolute truth or that my truth is better than yours. I am more than happy to agree to disagree with you and will think no less of you if we do.

But I do know this to be my truth. This reality is an illusion, a dream, a video game or movie if you will and we — humanity — collectively create this movie. There’s infinite meaning in all of this and no meaning at all, this is hard to grasp for the egoic mind but what you do matters as it shapes this movie we collectively call the world or reality. Everything you do, say, think, and believe has an enormous impact and ripples on into infinity as an energy wave.

The movie we’re creating today has a lot of ugliness in it, even though there’s also poetic beauty all around and there’s even poetic beauty in the ugliness itself.

But, the inconvenient truth is this movie is filled with wars, violence, inequality, injustice, pollution, greed, false agendas, corruption, malfeasance, and people causing great harm to others as well as Mother Earth with its magical creatures and creations.

Now, there’s a way out of all of this but you can’t solve it at the level of the egoic mind as that itself is just a psychological construct or in other words an “illusion.” The “I” you think is real is simply not, it’s merely a construct and only when you know how to “liberate” yourself from this construct and become the observer will you be able to see the big picture.

And, when you finally see the big picture, you see the madness of this world and you see right through all the bullshit. You also see the truth that heaven is right here on Earth except we’re blind to it looking through the eyes of the egoic mind.

That’s awakening which is nothing new. Jesus Christ, the Buddha, Lao Tzu and countless other masters all pointed at this thousands of years ago.

I am fully aware my message might appear raw and illusionary in your mind’s eye. I accept you cannot explain the color orange in a sea of red to the color blind. All the color blind get full vision restored at the right time for them. The thing is, this color vision resides in the heart, you will never find it in the cobwebs of the egoic mind no matter how long you search there. And, please note that even those that are still color blind are just as valuable and important as anyone else, there’s no hierarchy in any of this — that’s another illusion of the egoic mind.

What I stand for is love, compassion, free will, freedom, liberty, and the unalienable right of every single living human being to pursue happiness in whatever way they perceive to be happiness for them. Except, there are laws in this universe we have to adhere to and — just like Jesus Christ shared — perhaps the most important one is the Golden Rule.

“Do unto others as you wish to be done unto you.”

We don’t get a hall pass to willfully or knowingly cause harm to others which includes infringing on someone else’s free will. You are 100% responsible for you. Regretfully, humanity still has some ways to go to embody this sacred truth.

If my message offends you, so be it, I am not going to pipe down — I have three kids and I am a father on a mission to create the heaven on earth I want my children — all children — to inherit.

A better world, a more just world, a more beautiful world that’s rooted in love & compassion.

The creation of such a world starts with unity which is seeing all others as just as valuable, relevant, and important as ourselves.

Now, I know some of you reading this will say but you don’t even care about all these people that have died from Covid. It’s not that I don’t care — the contrary actually — but I accept that death is part of the natural cycle of life. Nobody dies before it’s their time, believing they do is not understanding that nothing in this universe is a fluke, accident, coincidence, or random event. Everything is cause-and-effect and everything is always in perfect order exactly the way it is. Perhaps not from the level of your or my mind or in your or my experience but from the level of the infinite intelligence that governs this whole universe. Death is merely a transition to another realm, it’s neutral except to the egoic mind death is the enemy. My egoic mind fears death also, but my soul knows there’s nothing to fear.

I am merely advocating free will choice, informed consent, and medical sovereignty. I don’t believe I have the right to tell another human being what they should or should not do with their body or health. I am not anti-vax in anyway — you do you — but I will stand up and voice my strong dissent with the notion we can or should impose a medicine on anyone that for whatever reason doesn’t want it when we have no mid to long-term clinical trials showing the medicine is safe, the medicine itself has proven to have limited efficacy, and there’s no group benefit. I am not suggesting there are no other vaccines that have been proven to be 100% safe and effective that have helped eradicate diseases that have been instrumental in improving the quality of life for humanity.

I will leave you with one very practical way to start seeing through all the madness and bullshit in this world. Don’t fixate on the movie itself. Pay attention instead to who’s directing the movie, who’s controlling the projector, and who’s collecting the box office receipts.

And, this is a free country, by all means unfollow me or tune me out. I fully respect and honor that perhaps none of what I have to share resonates with you. That’s totally okay, I wish you nothing but love, health and happiness.

Love & Truth,

Robert
