Understanding who or what the Opponent is, as we have seen, is a realization that one day will be revealed to us by the Consciousness. Now, instead, we will focus on the consequences of its work, because the consequences of its work are the most obvious and visible trace of its work in the world. The trace that can't be erased. The effects of its disturbing actions.

How does the action of the Opponent manifest itself in our lives?
  • Confused and continuous inner dialogue, made of a mass of voices, music, generally oriented toward negative and destructive thoughts, anxieties and worries for most unreal.
  • Habit of judgement and quantification of all things, about everything and especially about ourselves. The judgement usually is inadequacy, guilt, condemnation, contempt.
  • Escape from intensity and intentional discipline aimed to constructive actions, with a constant shift towards an unidentified future (typically tomorrow, Monday, or the first day of the next month) of something that we could and should do now. An escape directed to leave us undisturbed in our indulgences.
  • Tendency to the indulgent inertial drift towards habits, that in almost all cases are constructed like perpetuation or escape from a state of suffering, and consequent emotional attachment to them.
  • Self-sabotage of every inspiration that gives us joy and enthusiasm with all sorts of unreal doubts and fears, generated by the inner dialogue and the Surface Mind, which lead us to the result of thinking rather than acting. As long as we'll have talked so much with ourselves to turn off the inspiration.
  • Escape from the personal and total responsibility of our life, through its systematic transfer outside of ourselves, with a consequent verdict of guilty. It is his or her fault. It is the fault of this situation. It is the fault of this structure.
The overwhelming majority of human beings in modern occidental society, spread by now all over the planet, shares with his fellow men all these aspects.
Not just some: all of them.
Naturally what is the combined result, the effect, of all these features? Only one:


We live in a continuous, unreal and self-induced state of fear. Fear of losing unreal and nonexistent things. Approval. Reputation. The prize for our supposed merits and indulgences for our shortcomings. The safety.

This is the most incredibly obvious trace, as far as covered, of the the work of the Opponent. We all have the same characteristics, their effect is always misery, fear and a discomfort that has no name, and this doesn't make us suspicious at all.

The perfection of such a scenario, of such a strategy, is demonstrated by the fact that we can’t become suspicious of sharing all the same aspects with others, until we don't encounter someone who doesn’t have them; and in the past 1500 years, but we can probably go back to past 3000 years, is exactly what happened.

Human beings who set themselves free are existed, and always will exist. Many of them have tried to share with their fellow human beings what they had discovered; but their message has often suffered such a filtering to become considerably altered or even almost subverted: and who was the architect?

So if the effects of the work of the Opponent in our lives are fear, misery and suffering, practically all of us, conscious or not, will agree that these effects are not positive for us, and therefore should be changed. So why do humans accept them anyway, even though they will inevitably lead them to unhappiness and suffering? Why the message that has walked through all ages has never been heard by many, but instead has always been fought and obscured?

Because usually humans do not remember that the models of unhappiness and suffering that they perpetuate and bear in their lives were literally undergone by them, through a conditioning that begins at least since birth; moreover, they aren't aware of the existence of different models, and even if they get the chance to know them, they won’t probably trust in them.

But the most important reason why we persist in misery, the masterpiece in the work of the Opponent, comes from the way in which human beings interact with reality.

Human beings filter all the reality through their inner mental and emotional field; by this filtering, they create an inner image of reality to which they suit, to validate their perceptions.

What did the Opponent do, then? It has intervened to manipulate to its advantage the part of our mind that we have unconsciously elected responsible for the interpretation of this inner image. The Opponent has took the control of the Surface Mind.

It's impossible to change until the Surface Mind governs our lives, because the Surface Mind is not an expression of who we really are, but the "megaphone", so to speak, of the Opponent. This is the reason why the inner dialogue is obsessively focused on our castration, rather than to our realization. This is the reason why whatever falls into our field of Consciousness, unwittingly filtered by the Surface Mind, is discarded or not fed until its extinction, if only vaguely concerns the possibility of an inner Awakening. This is the reason why all documents like this, books on inner research, an encounter with a conscious being, will always be kept further off the possible with doubts, criticism and indifference by those who are not ready. The Surface Mind will filter their reality through an inner conditioned dialogue, and persons will dialogue with themselves saying that are all nonsense, non-existent facts without any scientific basis, ridiculous rumors, and so on, until they will be agreed with themselves in their inner dialogue.
The Voladores are efficient and organized.
To keep us obedient, meek and weak,
they have engaged in a
strategically wonderful operation.
They gave us their mind.

The mind of a Volador is unrivaled.
When it propose something, it cannot but
agree with itself, and lead you to believe
you have done something deserving.
The mind of the Volador will tell you that anything I say
are a bunch of nonsenses, and then it itself
will agree with its own statement,
"But of course, they are nonsenses."

This is the way they defeat us.

Carlos Castaneda
In this way, the reality cannot but conform to their Faith, because this is one of the Laws of our wonderful Universe.
When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward
to him, appealing to him, "Lord, my servant is lying
paralyzed at home, suffering terribly."
And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."
But the centurion replied, "Lord, I am not worthy
to have you come under my roof, but only say the Word,
and my servant will be healed. For I too am a man under
authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,'
and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to
my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."

When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who
followed him, "Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel
have I found such faith".
And to the centurion Jesus said,
"Go; let it be done for you as you have believed."
And the servant was healed at that very moment.

But then, how can you change?

Whether they are aware or not, humans that don't have, or ceased to feed, even just one of the above characteristics are already releasing the grip of their Opponent. But before proceeding, it is time to unmask one of the most powerful weapons at its disposal to keep us under its control.

It's time to unmask the way to filter the reality that the Opponent makes us use to keep the command.
