Kingdom economics is based on living life as we experience it. Illusions are not needed if we live life in the now and live life as we experience it in the now. Today, most people live with many ‘illusions’ and ‘delusions’ because our SYSTEM is set up with many ‘illusions’ and ‘delusions’. What we need (after the coming CRASH) is to understand reality as we experience it and then drop all the meaningless ‘illusions’. This is possible if we better understand the difference between reality and illusion. Let’s explore these two concepts called ‘reality’ and ‘illusion’ to better comprehend why most people can not discern reality today!

Definition of the word Illusion: a belief that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses or by real-time logic.
synonyms:miragehallucinationapparition, figment of the imagination, a deceptive appearance or impression.

What are some core ‘illusions/delusions’ which we all assume are mostly valid and real (but which are really ‘illusions’ within our thinking or our belief system) when fully explored? Let’s list a few and think seriously about these concepts to discern their core ‘nature’:

  1. Time:  this is a huge mental illusion which many assume expresses a valid reality…but which, in reality, is another mental ‘illusion’. What is ‘time’ (in reality)? What do we experience as ‘time’ in the Now? In reality, ‘time’ is an illusion because it does not ‘exist’. There is no such ‘thing’ as time within our space/time universe. Look everywhere all you want, but I don’t think you will find it. Why? Because ‘time’ does not ‘exist’ anywhere. It’s a mere ‘inner’ concept of our imagination which we use as a ‘tool’ for creating order and stability within our markets. Time started (my assumption) with the Egyptians some 5,000 sun revolutions prior to today. The idea was to use this concept (word) to create order when planting and harvesting. Time is a concept of my/your imagination which we use merely to help us with creating ‘order’ and ‘predictability’ for our survival needs. Many confuse ‘time’ with ‘motion’. Motion, however, is what I experience as I move through space and around our Sun. I travel at some 67,000 m.p.h. while revolving around our Sun. Motion is an outer reality (not mere mental imagination) but when we ‘attach’ time to motion we get an ‘illusion’ (this ‘past/future’ concept). Age and time are confusing. Past and Future are confusing. In reality, there is no ‘past’ and no ‘future’ (which we experience directly). All there is…IS the NOW moment. I live and experience life in the Now moment always (so do you). I can think of a ‘past’ via my memory system (within my consciousness) but I do this in a Now moment (always). The ‘past’ and the ‘future’ are experienced as NOW memories/imaginations (always). I LIVE in the Now and successive moments of Now (always)! This means that this concept we call ‘time’ (past/future) is an ‘illusion’ and/or a ‘delusion’ which has no relevance for our real-time living. It needs to be eliminated (after the coming CRASH). The NOW is real and the ‘past’ and the ‘future’ are deep-seated ‘illusions’! Think on this! See definition of ‘illusion’ above!
  2. Value:  this concept called ‘value’ is what started economics and the money system on planet Earth. We trade products between each other and this creates this concept called ‘value’. What is value (in reality)? Why is this concept an ‘illusion’? Does ‘value’ exist within any item or commodity on this planet? Is ‘value’ inherent/intrinsic to objects? If so, where? Where is this ‘thing’ called ‘value’? In reality, there is no such ‘thing’ as ‘value’. Value does not ‘exist’ within our space/time universe (anywhere). Value is a mere imaginary ‘inner’ idea which has no outer existence. Look all you desire for this thing called ‘value’. I don’t think you can find it. It does not ‘exist’. The concept started when we exchanged products (goods) in a marketplace. We exchanged this idea called ‘value’. Value for value is what started economics and money. To make ‘value’ objective and outer we invented this idea (word) called ‘money’. We chose a bead/metal/animal/object of nature as a proxy for ‘value’. This proxy (eventually a silver coin) then became an item of ‘value’ and we assumed that ‘value’ existed within the item. In reality, this is pure myth and illusion. Value does not exist (within any outer object) and we now realize that ‘value’ is an inner concept of our mind (a mental abstraction). It’s subjective and inner. It is pure illusion to assume that ‘value’ exists (within some ‘thing’). It does not. Prove me wrong! This means that we can eliminate this concept (value) and with its elimination we can eliminate both proxies for ‘value’ (money and currency). All are ILLUSIONS (of our mind)! We ‘invented’ these concepts to control behavior and advance production! They can now be eliminated!
  3. Life:  this concept called the origin of ‘life’ is another illusion of our mind which needs to be eliminated. What is life (in reality)? Where is life? Does life emerge from dead/inorganic matter? Is a cell also ‘life’? What is reality and what is ‘illusion’? In reality, life is our inner spirit. There is no origin of spirit. Spirit is eternal, invisible, immortal, and non-physical. Spirit is not a ‘thing’. It does not ‘exist’ as some outer ‘thing’ or object. Science try’s to convince us that ‘life’ has an origin. Life is supposed to emerge from inorganic matter/chemicals/or such. This is pure ‘illusion’ and deception. In reality, life has no origin and it has no beginning or end. Life is spirit (eternal). Life is consciousness. Life is inner. Try and find this idea called ‘life’? Look all you want, but I don’t think you can find life. You can not discover life. A cell is a cell. Bacteria is bacteria. Where is ‘life’ (which creates our actions)? It has no existence in our space/time universe. Life is my/your inner consciousness/spirit. It’s not a ‘thing’. It can not be found or discovered. So all the effort being spent (by our science community) to find ‘life’ is fruitless and meaningless. Life can not be discovered/found and it has NO origin. We are living another ‘illusion’ with this concept called ‘life’ and this concept called the ‘origin’ of life. Evolution from inorganic matter is pure myth/illusion! We need to eliminate this illusion (after the coming CRASH).

Think about a new System where the above three illusions (plus others) are eliminated from our thinking. I/you live in the NOW (always). We exchange things and products in the now to survive, but all these things and products have no intrinsic VALUE. Why? Because ‘Value’ does not exist (anywhere). We also need to quit trying to find this non-thing called ‘life’. Life is our inner spirit/consciousness (its inner). It also does not exist (as a ‘thing’). If we eliminate the above three ‘illusions’ from our thinking, then we can experience reality as we live it (more fully). Life is lived in the Now (always) and via successive moments of Now. There is no ‘past’ or ‘future’. The Now is how we live our lives. We can experience this NOW and NOW and NOW (forever for those who are awake).

If we live life without the above three huge ‘illusions’, then we can create a society which works without these illusions. Illusions just confuse and deceive the human mind. Illusions create misunderstandings and wasted efforts by our media, science, and education. Why not eliminate illusions and live life as we EXPERIENCE it (in the ever-present NOW)? This is my mantra for Kingdom Economics. Live and let live each moment of NOW. Eliminate illusions which aren’t real. Wake-up to reality as we live it in the Now moment. Forget the past. The past does not exist. Forget the future. The Future does not exist. Forget this concept called Value. Value does not exist. Forget money and currency as both do not exist. Live reality and drop all the ILLUSIONS! Think on this! More later! I am:

P.S. Some wisdom to consider:

Money: it’s invented. We can eliminate this concept if we choose.

Currency: it’s invented. We can eliminate this concept if we choose.

Value: it’s invented. We can eliminate this concept if we choose.

Time: it’s invented. We can eliminate this concept if we choose.

Life: it’s eternal. We can drop all efforts to find, discover, locate this non-thing.

Motion: it’s outer and discernible. We can detach ‘time’ from this concept.

Exist: that which has matter (mass). Concepts of the mind/consciousness have no matter (mass).

Now: that’s how I/You experience reality. Now…and successive moments of Now.

Past: a Now memory. I/You have no direct access to this memory.

Future: a Now expectation. I/You have no direct access to this expectation.

Reality: a perception, description, belief, understanding which conforms with real-time experience…within a Now environment.

Illusion: a deception, confusion, false belief, hallucination, apparition which leads us to false living and behavior.

Crash: an economic event which happens due to human illusions, deceptions, false thinking, and global deceptions of real-time reality.

Some additional images to internalize:

Today’s human system is loaded with illusions, delusions, and deceptions! They need to be eliminated!

The above is a partial list of causes. Others relate to how our current human system is set-up and administered!

Visual tricks and gimmicks can lead us to misconceptions and illusions. Time, Value, Money all are illusionary concepts!

Image result for money is an illusion

Money does not ‘exist’ in nature but we humans ‘invent’ it to control commerce, people, and production!


Image result for time is an illusion

Time is a huge illusion as humans don’t experience it. We experience ONLY the Now moment!

Image result for origin of life from nonliving matter is an illusion

Life is eternal and it does not emerge from non-life (abiogenesis). Life derives from prior life (biogenesis)!

Image result for myth of darwinian evolution

Time is an inner concept with no external existence! Dating is mostly meaningless as ‘time’ does not exist!

Image result for evolution of man from a common ancestor

There is NO origin of the human spirit. My/Your spirit core is eternal. Time is a NOW experience (always)! Time does not exist!

Image result for the coming stock market crash

The GREAT Crash is coming soon! Let’s rethink REALITY after this soon coming CRASH!
