Pain is a wrong perspective.

When you experience pain, it is proof of self-deception and lies because pain disappears the moment it is seen in the correct perspective.

Pain is the false belief that God is cruel, hates you and sees you as a sinful being that deserves the ultimate revenge, death. Pain is the mistake of believing that you are abandoned by God. Pain is the fear of being alone because God is mad at you and wants to punish you.

If pain is real, then it means there is no God because vengeance, punishment and retaliation are not part of the LOVE that is God.

It is time to stop such insane beliefs.

Only your thoughts about yourself, other people, situations or the world cause you pain. Nothing external can cause you pain, only your interpretation, your way of seeing the external world causes you to suffer.

So it is you that has the power to interpret everything either as pain or joy.

What is joy? Joy is the recognition of this one truth, that everything is innocent love at its core. Everything else that appears to be painful is a false idea you have created in your head. Therefore you have ultimate power to dissolve the idea and once again see the innocent love all around you.

Think about this for a while. The world around you does nothing except represent the thoughts and ideas in your head. How you see the world around you will immediately change as you change your thoughts and choose the joy of God, the innocent love of everyone and everything as what you really want.

Choosing the joy of God means you stop condemning and judging everything including yourself and allow things to be still for a moment with no resistance to the pain that appears to be.  Soon everything including yourself will show you its truth, that all is joyful, innocent love.

And you will smile at your silly notions of pain that you believed just moments before.

Lay down your arms and come without defense to God, to the joy that waits for you behind every illusion of pain. This is forgiveness. Forgiving yourself for believing pain was the truth.

Drop all thoughts of danger and fear. Drop all judgment. Drop all blame and attack. Drop all these things that keep you from joy. This is forgiveness. Giving up what is false.

Then you will understand there is no pain and the joy of God will belong to you.

Pain is an illusion. Joy is reality.

Pain is sleeping. Joy is awakening.

Pain is lies. Joy is truth.

There is only one choice we ever have to make in life.

Between illusion or reality, pain or joy, fear or love, peace or conflict, hell or heaven.

You have already chosen one side many times over and what has it offered you?

Why not choose differently today and experience a new way of living?

with love,


Happy Easter

Today is the day to remember that we are more than bodies. We are God’s energy emanating through physical form. Today is the day to remember there is no need for struggle in this world because the source of all we need is already within and flowing through us.

God is not outside of us but is the very light we are created with. We were never separate from God nor did we ever have to earn his favor.

It is hard to accept that we secretly enjoy the struggles of life as it gives us a purpose when we don’t understand why we are here. We can choose to surrender the struggle and face the fear of a life without mental hardship that we unknowingly created. It will take faith and trust to believe that a new purpose will arise for us. A purpose that is joyful. peaceful and complete.

The purpose is to be fully present to all of life. Fully present means without any resistance in the form of judgement; good or bad, right or wrong.

Be fully present with what is at this moment and allow the mysterious beauty of that to unfold before your very eyes.

Happy Easter.


God is What We Come From, What We Are and What We Return To

“He’s gone” is what my son said about Mikey, our family cat. He didn’t  say he was dead when he called me at the office. In a trembling voice he said only, “he’s gone”. I grilled him on the phone. How? What happened? But he kept repeating “he’s gone”.

I rushed home. When I saw his lifeless little body wrapped in a towel, I knew why my son had said he’s gone. His body had been vacated. Standing there looking at him, the word dead didn’t fit. He just seemed gone.

Perhaps we instinctively know what animates our skin and bones is far beyond the body itself. Maybe we recognize there is a Presence in living things that’s not made up of matter. When the body stops functioning, it becomes obvious the body wasn’t the Presence but merely the holder of it.

Why don’t we see this when someone is alive? We relate to the body so much. Its gestures and its speech are what we interact with, what we think we love or hate. We never really get to know the Presence beneath all this, the silent energy that flows through them.  If we sit still long enough, we can recognize the same silent energy flows through us. This same Presence is in us and has nothing to do with our constantly changing body and mind.

Some people believe it’s too hard to comprehend the finality of death. They believe we create concepts about a Presence that lives on to rationalize the pain. I understand this. But I have a hard time believing the Presence that animated our cat and even my mother when she was alive, was nothing more than a perfect combustion of chemicals. Something started that fire that was their lives.

I believe that was God.

Many spiritual writings talk about the breath of God as the force that gives us life. It could be that God is more than the giver of life but is the very Presence of life within us. Silently, God is living within all of us beneath our personalities, beliefs, memories and longings. God is with us all the time because God is this silent Presence.

We spend so much time looking for God, asking for his forgiveness, his charity, his praise. We look up to the sky or towards some symbol of God but we never think to look within ourselves. To sit quietly and let all the distractions of the outside world and the inner world of our mind settle down, to come back into contact with the Presence of God within.

If the Presence within is God, then we are never separate from God. Maybe we are asleep to God, blind or deaf to God but never apart. God is right here, right now within as the silent but powerful engine that moves us along.

Perhaps there are many levels to God and our world is just one level with people, animals, plants, the Earth, the Sun and all the universe having their current of God running through. God may not be that separate entity we were taught to believe in. Rather God is the very Presence we and everything else are made of. Only the costumes we wear are different but the Presence within is the same.

This would change our view of everything wouldn’t it? We might disagree with the outer shell but we could never really hate it because it was our same Presence at its core. It is this same silent Presence that lives and breathes each day regardless of the events we worry and argue so much about.

Then for some seemingly random and unknown reason, which may or may not be, the Presence decides to move on. Perhaps to join other parts of the Presence temporarily housed somewhere else. Or to move back to the original, pure and highest form of Presence for a rest before journeying out again.

If God is many levels and perhaps omnipresent, existing everywhere at once, then it becomes clear why what we call “life” seems to come and go. It could be that God is what we come from, what we are and what we return to. It’s all God coming and going, moving and reshaping, ever creating itself in new forms.

It’s kind of playful isn’t it? Like our cat Mikey was.


When, What and Why to Forgive?

Forgiveness is something we can do at every moment and is actually the key to our happiness because it is our opportunity to live in this physical world as close to God, our true identity, as is humanly possible. When you are living as close to your authentic, true self, you are the most happiest, peaceful and joyful because you are free from all false pretenses that take so much effort to keep up.

Many people are skeptical to believe that God is their true identity as we have been trained to believe that God is something outside of us that we must obey in order to gain favor.

However, I define God as the all loving, all creative, all present energy that is the source of everything in this physical world and beyond including me. I also believe God has no allegiance to any religion or belief system because it is the larger energy that animates everything. In my understanding, God is removed and above any thought system humans have devised and at the same time God extends itself through each and every human on this planet and any possible being beyond in the universe.

It is not necessary to have an authority validate my beliefs as the proof is in the feeling of peace and safety that results from believing God is the core of who we all are.

Because of how I define God, forgiveness is something I do for myself as the antidote to all pain which stems from this one error; perceiving, defining and judging others or myself by our actions and words rather than by our God essence.

This mis-perception of what our true essence really is causes all suffering because if someone else is Godless- not sourced in God, then maybe I too am not sourced in God as well. This fear of potentially not being connected to God means we could be all floating in a vast wasteland of meaninglessness without a lifeline, left to our own devices to somehow create meaning out of chaos.

Our egos want us to believe that the chaos is true because then we will cling to our ego’s ideas and principles so strongly for safety. We will separate, divide and continue the chaos at all costs for fear of losing ourselves if the chaos were to suddenly morph into the order of God.

The ego asks, who are you if you are not defining yourself by fighting against something you are not?

God answers, you would be as I Am, whole and complete.

Forgiveness changes the viewpoint that the universe is chaos and says that only the mind identified with the ego is in chaos which is why it looks out on a world and only sees only chaos. After forgiveness you return to your true God identification which is outside of time and space as the ever-present, ever-loving, ever-constant, ever-sure and ever-steady energy beyond the perceived chaos.

Forgiveness is the understanding that we were delusional when we viewed the world and ourselves through the distorted lens of ego’s false self that says we are separate from each other, separate from the one God and that we must fight to keep this separate identity in order to survive.

Forgiveness acknowledges that events may happen, horrible events may come to pass, but it is how we look at these events, how we perceive them, how we interpret them and our decision to even judge them as something we don’t want, that is the seed for of all our suffering.

And with this self-responsibility comes our power to change our experience.

Forgiveness says we saw things incorrectly. Forgiveness says we looked at the mask that covered the truth and judged the mask to be the true instead of the truth. Forgiveness says we are willing to give up our ego and look beyond the false identity to see the real identity of ourselves as extensions of the Love of God.

Forgiveness means seeing God at the core of everyone and everything, which takes the “sting” out of what at first, seemed painful on the surface. After that, there may be situations to change, requests to be made, actions to be taken but they are taken with the greater knowledge that at our essence, we are all the perfect Love of God already.

In this view, we are free to make changes in our lives and request help with what would assist us to be more comfortable without guilt or fear knowing we are all on our journey back to the truth that God is within each of us and is the loving source of all that is.

Forgiveness means to finally have the courage to look past what is false and see what is true for everyone; that the existence of each of us, including our perceived enemies, is the proof of the extending Love of God. Everything else is a temporary reality that is inconsequential compared to the absolute truth of what God’s reality is. This helps us deal with the pain of the temporary with more grace and confidence and less angst and strife.

To forgive means to finally be free of the confusion of what is real and what is not, to understand what is meaningful and what is not and to be clear about what suffering is and what it is not.

To forgive means to enjoy our identity and source with the timeless, changeless God and not with the fragile, temporary ego.

Knowing this, let us ask ourselves; could this be the perfect time to let go of who we think we are and allow forgiveness to show us who we really are?


Want True Power?

All power comes from God. Anything not of God, has no power at all.

The ego believes the opposite and tries to constantly convince us that it has all the power.

Quite frankly, the ego is an imposter, an emperor without clothes, trying to pass itself off as The Real Thing or a well suited king.

The ego’s highest priority is to preserve its control and power by persuading us to believe we are separate beings with separate needs and wants. Further, it nags us to be constantly vigilant against others who may prevent us from satisfying these very same needs and wants. Separation from each other and God (which represents Love and Oneness) is a key objective for the ego.

There can be NO oneness where the ego is concerned because oneness means the end of separation, the end of its existence or its “death”; a complete dissolve into nothingness as the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy doused her with water.

To the ego, there is nothing that lies beyond.

In order to build a case for separateness to keep its image of itself alive, the ego analyzes everything to attack it and break it down into meaningless parts. Then it chooses bits and pieces from the deconstructed whole, puts it back together the way it wants to, forming its own version of the truth to fit its view of separation and outside threat…and we unknowingly believe our resulting perception is the “Truth” that we base our power or lack of power on.

A radically different view of where true power lies is this: God is the Truth and Truth is the sum of all parts with no bits or pieces left out. Another way we can look at the Truth is acceptance, meaning we accept everything is as it is (perhaps not condone everything) with no denial. We open our eyes to see the wholeness or the sum of all the parts with nothing excluded.

Acceptance, the view of wholeness as the whole Truth is the first step towards waking up to the presence of God within us. Nothing is denied. Nothing is hidden. What emerges then from total acceptance of everything, is the presence of God within us as our true identity, our higher self. This experience of our higher self within, which may have been overshadowed by the ego for so long, hardly feels comfortable to acknowledge at first.

However, soon our higher self is easy to follow with no strain at all for it is our natural state of awareness. It is only the distortions of the ego which make following our higher self seem like a fearful path.  Here is where a little bit of faith, trust and willingness to believe in our higher self works wonders. Initially, this is all it takes to loosen the ego’s power hungry grip upon our minds with its familiar fear based thinking.

The true God does not demand anything of us other than to acknowledge that our higher self exists and is our true identity. Once we become acquainted with our higher self, our path will feel safer and become more clear as God’s Will for us, the only true will there is in the universe. At this point, the ego has been revealed to be our impostor identity with absolutely no power at all. We might actually laugh at how fiercely we once believed in its “power” to guide and protect us.

This is the direction all of humanity is headed. Whether the realization happens now or in a million years depends on our effort. Any delay on our part is asking for more frustration in our lives today, with endless worldly pursuits that never lead to any lasting satisfaction, true joy or inner peace.

When we choose to embrace our higher self as our only true self, the person we really are ans we intended to be; we will know ourselves as manifestations of God in the here and now.

Finally we will understand and begin to experience:

All power comes from God. Anything not of God, has no power at all.


Prisoner No More!

The peace we seek from anxiety, fear, anger, sadness or depression comes through our forgiveness. True forgiveness sees the absolute, perfect innocent inner core of every person, including ourselves, no matter what has happened, no matter what the “evil” or “ugly” appearances may be.

True forgiveness dissolves all grievances against others and ourselves. When all grievances are dissolved, so too are all the blocks to the Love and the Light that is God. What is then revealed and experienced next, is that the Love and the Light of God were always within us and within the other people; at one time held back by grievances but now rushing forth in freedom.

This is the miracle of true forgiveness. It releases us from being prisoners of our egos that want to blame and shame everyone including ourselves for all problems. True forgiveness  allows us to settle back peacefully into the truth of who we are, unlimited manifestations of the Love and Light of God with no real problems at all.

Forgiveness is the only real purpose we have underneath all the different roles we play in our lives; doctor, teacher, mother, father, lover, caregiver, advocate, activist, friend, employee, employer, etc.

Forgiveness simultaneously reveals to both the giver and the receiver, the Godliness inherent in every person and situation which releases us from the fear of everyone and everything.

(Godliness if correctly perceived would make us feel safe. Why would anyone need to fear the Godliness of anything which is an attribute of God, the loving creator of all that is? Unless, of course, we believe the false notion that God punishes, which would increase our fear….this false idea of a punitive God will be the subject of another blog!)

This experience of inherent Godliness is in direct opposition to the self created pain and suffering of the world which results from our grievances; our anger, our fear, our insecurity, our judgment, etc.

When we drop our grievances, EVEN FOR ONE MOMENT, by being aware of the innocent, God created core of each person including ourselves, peace will flood our entire being. We will instantly know that we have touched an eternal and everlasting truth that is the only real truth in this world.

Imagine functioning every day of our lives being aware of this truth? Imagine having this awareness permeate every conversation we have with another?

Our confidence would soar. Our hearts would easily embrace difficulty. Our vision to see solutions would be clear. As a result our joy and happiness would multiply because all our anxiety would decrease.

We would simply smile peacefully living each day with grace and appreciation for having glimpsed this truth; that at the inner level, all are safe as the Love and Light of God.

Nothing in this world can truly harm our inner core, it is only our egos that may be bruised, the very same egos that kept us chained to our grievances and blocked us from the Love and Light that now frees us into our peace.



Why Does God Test Us?

He doesn’t.

Many religious and spiritual paths teach that every hardship we encounter is a test given to us by God. If we pass the test, life gets easier because we receive more of his favor. If we fail… well don’t worry, we will get another chance to be tested to earn his favor.

This is a perfect example of the reverse thinking of the world.

God does not test us. He does not have to. Why would he want to test us? God is the most powerful, creative force in the universe and we are his loved creations. Every single one of us, no matter what our status here on Earth is a creation from God and completely loved by God. (yes, even the ones considered “evil” by the world, which I will write about next time)

What possible good could it serve God to test us? To prove that we, his loved creations, are worthy of him? Only an insecure God would desire that kind of affirmation, not the most powerful force in the universe. As payback for our sins or mistakes? Only a power-hungry God would demand that kind of humility, not a loving creator.

If you think of it, God or what ever name you like to use for the originator of all that is, would actually be acting in a manner less than what he is, if he had to resort to this kind of relationship with us.

Some would say, he does this out of love, to teach us lessons.

To that I would say no. God does not need to teach us anything. We already know everything because we come from him, are still part of him and are therefore connected to everything he is.

But what we are is ASLEEP to the truth of who we are. We are having a severe identity crises and don’t know who we are. Instead, we define and identify ourselves as finite bodies with limited life spans and limited abilities. We have forgotten at a very young age, through the conditioning of the world, that our real identity rests in God. We have forgotten that we are not the children of our parents; we are the children of an all-powerful, all creative, life affirming God and therefore lack nothing.

What God does do is look on the silliness of this world, which includes the dramas we create based on our fears such as abandonment, disappointment, insecurity, anger, victimhood, etc….and he patiently waits.

God can wait for eternity because he knows that he has already given us every thing we need and that everything is already here for our taking. All we need to do is wake up and see it.

We need to take the blinders off that WE CREATED not God, which block all the seeing of the answers right in front of us. The answers for joy, abundance and safety we can’t see because we are too busy defending, too busy holding on to and too busy legitimizing the very fears that are keeping us asleep and blocking our vision of God’s love and generosity for us.

No, God does not test us.

It is we that test ourselves. We do this by believing in our fears more than we believe in our identity as One with God. We do this over and over until we realize that the only reason we did this in the first place is because we forgot who we were and the glory that we came from. We are like sleeping kings and queens who are lost in the forest while the kingdom is calling for us to come back and take our royal place again.

We don’t have to do this any longer. God has always been and always will be waiting to give us everything we need and the peace we really want.

Let’s stop blocking God and trust that our pass/fail days are over.


Forgive To Be Free

Think of the anger you feel against someone who lied to you.

Think of the sadness you feel about something lost to someone else.

Think of the disrespect you feel as a result of others’ words.

Think of the disappointment you feel because others have let you down.

Think of the threat you feel because of others’ actions.

False forgiveness has taught us that we are to look at ourselves as the better people and as a sign of our higher place, we are to forgive others who we believe have wronged us. False forgiveness has taught us that this is what good, righteous or spiritually advanced people do.

In truth, all false forgiveness does is judge the other person to be at fault for what we are feeling. That is not true forgiveness and there is nothing truly loving about this.

True forgiveness is to see that there is nothing to forgive in the other person. There is only one person to forgive, and that is ourselves.

What do we forgive ourselves for? For seeing any events, any actions, any words of others or ourselves as “problematic “in the first place. The reality is that things just are they way they are in every moment. There is nothing inherently good or bad about how anything is, until we put a judgment on it.

We may prefer that things be different, and so we ask to see things differently which takes us out of judgment and into neutrality. When we look at things in a neutral way, with nothing being inherently good or bad, we can look objectively and be guided by our Higher Self to say or do exactly what is the best thing to do or say that will bring us closer to the experience we prefer.

This might mean that the “how” for the outcome we want may be different from what we envisioned, but the end result will be exactly what we asked for. For example, we may want someone to be less irritating to us and with forgiveness of ourselves for seeing them as irritating; they may change how they act towards us and be more loving or may leave our lives. Either way, no irritation!

To falsely forgive others is to judge them first as wrong, then blame them for what we feel and then to give them a pardon for their wrongdoing. That is like holding a burning hot coal and blaming another for the pain in our hand and then pardoning them for our burn!

Look inside yourself today and see what hot coals you are holding on to that burden your mind. Truly forgive yourself for holding on to this perception of someone else’s or your own wrongdoing. You are the only one you need to forgive for the judgments you make about yourself or others.

Once you get in the habit of forgiving yourself for all judgment, blame and the hidden shame that lies underneath for perpetrating the whole drama, you will feel free.

True forgiveness lightens the load. It is the true source of freedom. When you feel light, you have the ability and the confidence to take risks, to challenge your fears, to go beyond what is known and comfortable and happily investigate what is new and different.

If your life feels like a burden that holds you back……by being stuck in anger, lost in sadness, wallowing in disrespect, weighed down with disappointment or paralyzed with fear….

Begin with true forgiveness and let go of the personal attack that never really happened as YOU PERCEIVED it or as YOU IMAGINED it to be.

Choose to drop the hot coals you cling to so tightly by forgiving yourself for holding on to them in the first place and finally live as free as you were meant to live.

With trust in the truth,


Laugh Loud

One of the first deep meditations I ever had resulted in laughter. Not just a chuckle but rather a full-out, belly busting laugh that continued for more than a few minutes. Why was I laughing? It was not so much that I laughed but rather laughing overtook me.

Let me explain.

I was in a room full of people guided into a meditation that used rhythmic breathing to bypass the conscious mind and go behind the defenses used to stop us from seeing the truth, otherwise known as denial.

We were all on the floor, lying on our backs, eyes closed, each in our own space both physically and mentally. After some time passed, my breathing began to bring me face to face with my mental pain and suffering. In a sudden and stark reality check, I clearly saw that my choice of how to perceive things was ultimately responsible for the pain and suffering I felt. It was clear that this was true for all people and all situations in my life.

Immediately to the left of me, in my mind’s eye, I saw the image of a man with long dark hair. He was thin and sat cross-legged wearing crispy clean white pants and shirt. He was handsome, under 30, clear complexion, deep beautiful eyes and was laughing heartily. He slapped his knee with wild abandon and laughed even harder with such intensity that I started laughing too, right out loud.

In that moment between this young man and I, without any words exchanged, I saw how silly all my pain and suffering were. They were my own creations, created out of ignorance because I did not know that I had created them and therefore had the power to change them at any moment. These very same creations of pain and suffering could be transformed into nothingness or even into joy by merely deciding I was going to choose a new way to look at the very same people and situations.

In a flash, all this was so easily understood. It was so simple and clear that I laughed harder, louder and more uncontrollably.

Meanwhile I was aware that in the room, I was the only one laughing. All the other people were breathing and meditating, some without reaction, many crying or screaming out in pain. I had a fleeting thought that wondered if I was I the crazy one for laughing or were they for weeping?

Once the laughter began to subside within me, the young man’s laughter also quieted. Then in my mind’s eye directly in front of me emerged the image of the earth suspended in mid-air. I was overwhelmed with the enormity of it. Then with a power from which I do not know where or how it came about, my once resting arms by my sides began to grow. It literally felt like they were extending longer and longer from my wrists, a few feet at first, then yards, then miles and soon they were so long they could extend around the entire earth in front of me, which is exactly what they did.

I was in awe of what was happening as it happened and did not want it to stop. It felt so good to have my arms extend at such speed. I felt enormous and powerful in spirit.  When my hands were finally able to grasp each other on the opposite side of the earth, I felt such a rush of joy and happiness. Not the joy of laughter which felt more like a release. This was the joy of wholeness, of completeness, of absolutely no lack, no desire nor need of anything. Complete satisfaction, complete contentment. Complete Love.

And the young man just sat there and witnessed it all. Peace on his face. Peace emanating from his being.

I never really believed in the Jesus of the Bible as he had been shown to me before this. The story of that man never made much sense. But the image of this young man in my meditation made a lot of sense, without his uttering one word.

It has been quite a while since my encounter with him and I had  forgotten his lesson of laughter, falling back asleep looking for answers to my pain and suffering in many of the same old places. But today I remembered him clearly and realized that it was the laughter, his and mine, that was the gateway to experience truth.  The truth that love is always present, ready to flow through me and it is only my self-created dramas, that I believe are real, which block it.

Do not forget to laugh at yourself and at others. For in the laughter is the forgiveness of all people’s ignorance of their own power to choose what perception of life they have. Be courageous enough to laugh at even the most serious perceptions, so you may uncover the blockage to love you create with the drama of not having things the way you want them to be.

The laughter helps let go of the tight grip to have things a certain way and opens the door to receive the experience of a better way. A way you could not know was possible because you were so preoccupied with tunnel vision for how your life or the world should be.

Today is a good day to laugh. Laugh hard. Laugh long. Laugh loud.


Believe the Unbelievable

I believe the unbelievable.

I believe there is no error in anyone or anything. Forgiveness is the correction of my mis-perception that sees error in others, not the forgiveness of anyone’s wrongdoing.

I believe the unbelievable perfect oneness of everything. There is only one reality and that is of Love, of God.

If we all believed this, the reason for the world we experience now would seek to exist, a truth our egos strongly resist because without the kind of world we know now, there can be no ego.

The ego does not reside with God. It is a creation of a mind that sees error and uses the ego to attack and condemn others and itself of these errors, over and over again, imprisoning the same mind that created it with guilt, blame and shame.

What is the practical nature of this knowledge?

To free your mind of erroneous thought; to free yourself of false blame, shame or guilt.

There is only one true thought and that is of Oneness, Love, God. We are all connected, all actions are connected, all events are connected and all thoughts are connected.  Look at the world this way and you are free. Your perception will be clear and answers will come because you have dissolved all the walls between what you thought was you and what you thought were others.

Any thought that proclaims separation or individuality is the set up for the error of limits, scarcity and survival, all forms of fear that keep us bound and blind.

Choose to have a free mind where there is potential in every person and every moment because you have the clear perception to see that Oneness, Love, God, is the source of everything you see, no matter how unlikely that may appear to be.

Have courage to believe in the unbelievable and you will be shown the unbelievable. That fear in all its forms is a falsehood that perpetuates the very dark fate it proclaims to warn you of. Only Love and the Perfect Oneness of God are true.

Ask to see this when you become aware that you have failed to remember it, and you will see it. And it that seeing, all solutions to all problems appear and the direction out of confusion is revealed.

I believe the unbelievable.
