The #1 Personal Development Book of Modern Times: Reality Transurfing

Table of Contents

As some of you may know, this is one of my favorite books. 

I wanted to share my biggest takeaways from this masterpiece with you.

  • As long as you constantly remind yourself of your end goal, and you visualize yourself achieving it, you will weather all storms you come across. As long as you view each ‘failure’ as a success, you will be fine.

  • It is crucial that you often remind yourself of what you have learned. We have so much information around us all the time, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and forget things that we’ve seen or read before.

  • Absolutely nobody knows exactly how they will achieve their goal. You can make a plan, but things will never go 100% according to plan. Hence why you have to not give up, have faith, and continue in the direction of your goal, taking one step at a time.

  • the world is a mirror and reflects at you what you feed it. If you are full of negativity, and all you do is lash out and release hate and dissatisfaction, that is what will come back to you

  • one of, if not the greatest lie ever, is that success and the good life is only reserved for a chosen minority. That is false. The truth is, every single person on earth possess truly unique qualities, and that they simply need to make the choice to unearth those qualities and create their own destiny. Almost nobody does, because they buy into the idea that there’s nothing truly special about them that sets them apart, that you need xyz to make a lot of money and live an incredible life. You can’t undo this, but you yourself can break out of it, and become one of the chosen few.

  • all works and thoughts of genius are very simple


It’s very apparent to most of us that we are living in strange times.

Unfortunately, most people are very fearful. You can’t blame them, just like you can’t blame a herd of sheep for running about frantically if they hear a wolf howl…

Especially if no wolf is actually howling.


There’s a real good podcast out there that I’ve been listening to lately. Unlike anything else out there.

1 belief is the enemy of knowing – what does it mean?


Their motto is ‘belief is the enemy of knowing’.

Now, that’s food for thought, isn’t it?

Why would belief be the enemy of knowing?

Because beliefs can BLIND you to the truth. They can cause you to be heavily invested in what you think is true. The problem arises where so much irrefutable evidence arises, as to completely and logically dismantle your beliefs.

Which also dismantles the ego.

We attach our sense of self worth and derive our sense of value from a paradigm that is not to our benefit as individuals.

Pendulums, as Vadim Zeland calls them.

He’s also quoted as saying that ‘true genius lies in freeing oneself of pendulums’.

Beliefs = pendulums.

Pendulums = slavery.

The objective of pendulums, is to draw as much energy as possible from people. You live to serve these entities.

You build your ego on them. You set them as your foundation. Let me explain: children go to school. Some excel, while others struggle and detest their situation… and rightfully so. Amongst both of these groups, are children who have learned to enjoy adhering to the system. They relish every chance to prove their ability to regurgitate information and supposedly show off in front of the other students. Likewise, they are devastated when they are presented with poor grades.


Their world comes crashing down. ‘I thought I was smart?!’


‘Smart’, because doing well in school = not failing at anything. Being perfect. Well-behaved, well-dressed, getting good grades, and demonstrating how well you fit into the school system, and how others should strive to emulate you.

Which couldn’t be any further from the truth.

I would know – I used to be this kid, until I recognized how useless it all was, in regards to my path in life.

Now, on the other hand, we have the kids who were supposedly ‘badly behaved’. The naughty ones.

Why were they naughty?

Because they didn’t want to listen. Because they had strong wills, and would not be subjugated to the authority of complete strangers (teachers).

So you see, school is just one example of a pendulum. Work is another. Even a favorite pastime, like watching sports, is a pendulum.

The sad thing is, even for those who read this article, very few will truly understand the importance of what’s being said here.

I’m saying this to brag – after all, these aren’t my ideas, but rather my experience. The experience of waking up, or at least, commencing the process.

The way I see it now, it’s okay if only a few wake up.

Consider the Parable of the Farmer Scattering Seed by Jesus, in Matthew 13.

“Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand”

No, I’m not preaching or trying to convert anyone, but hey, if the Son of God says this, then it probably has some merit.

But why bother waking up? Why bother trying to spread the truth to others? Is it naiive to hope that, out of all the people you talk to, at least one of them will find value in what you say?

I don’t think so.

I think that if you realize any truth at all, it is your duty as a human being to inform others.

Of course, you don’t just drop massive truth bombs on them. You feed them gradually – a little piece there, a little piece here, and so on.

2 what are some beliefs that many people have, that are actually not based on fact?


“We are taught from childhood to obey the will of others, to perform our duties, serve our country, our family, the company we work for, a political party, the state, or even an idea; to serve anyone except ourselves. To varying degrees, everyone has a sense of duty, responsibility, necessity and guilt. Everyone is ready to serve a group or organization in one way or another, be it family, a club, school, company, political party, the state, and so on. All these structures emerge and develop when a separate group of people begin to think and act in the same way. Then, they are joined by others, and the structure grows, gaining strength, forcing its members to follow the rules and eventually amassing the potential to gain control over large groups of society.” ( 36)

Think about all the beliefs you hold, and the beliefs that many others share.

And prepare to dismantle them.

Lots of people believe that…

The moon landing was real

6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust

The government and the police are there to protect us and our rights

Climate change is mainly being influenced by human activity, and that it’s bad news for us

Everything said on the news or by a politician or a celebrity is real

Politics is actually something worth discussing

Men should be sweet and caring and buy a woman flowers and take them to classy, expensive restaurants on dates

You should buy and live in your first home

You need to go to college to get a good job

You need to get married if you want a family

Business and entrepreneurship is risky and only a few people are ever successful at it

Vaccines are perfectly safe

Doctors, scientists, and other ‘experts’ know exactly what they’re doing and you should totally trust them

Bacteria and viruses can cause deadly diseases

You have to be a genius to get rich

The most attractive women only want rich, muscular, successful men

Going to war and ‘defending your country’ is noble and heroic

Treatments like chemotherapy are relatively safe and the optimal course of action for someone suffering from an ailment like cancer

Women were and are oppressed

Islamic terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center in New York on September 11th, 2001

Dinosaurs used to walk the earth

You have to work long and hard to be successful

As you can see, the list is extensive.


And, probably the most horrible part of all this, is that people live their entire lives believing these lies. They GIVE THEIR ENTIRE LIFE to these lies! Their lives are completely based on lies! They willingly impose a glass ceiling above themselves!

For example, a man who grows up believing that ‘America is the greatest country in the world’, and that he needs to ‘support our troops’ by joining the military (and legally becoming government property), with the noble intent of ‘defending his country’ from ‘terrorists’, can have his life ended by a bullet before his 30th birthday.

For nothing. This man could’ve realized that patriotism is a lie, and that his country is not under any threat and does not require him nor any of his peers to put their lives on the line.

Another example could be a middle-aged father who is supposedly diagnosed with cancer, when he may or may not even have it. He is convinced to take chemotherapy despite a razor thin survival rate, and dies a few months later.

For nothing. He could’ve sought alternative treatments, such as the Gerson Method, or the use of full extract cannabis oil, and continued living his life and providing for his family.

Money is also something that tons of people have limiting beliefs about.

‘Nobody in my family has ever earned more than $50,000 in a year, so neither can I’

‘I don’t have a degree, so I can’t get a good job’

‘I don’t have a mentor, so I can’t learn a skill and start a business’

‘I don’t have any money, so I can’t start a business’

‘It’s wrong to want to make a lot of money – only greedy people are like that. We should be thankful we have good, stable jobs’

These are just more beliefs, pendulums, whatever you want to call them.

I’m writing this article for you because I believe that if you’ve found Absolute Courage, you’re smarter than the rest. You know, deep inside, that there’s more out there, but you can’t quite put your finger on it… that you can actually have any life you can imagine, within the confines of certain limiting factors.

“The idea that real success, be it in business, science, art, sport, or any other sphere can only be achieved by a few individuals is widely accepted as the normal state of affairs. Nobody seems to question it or consider it abnormal. You already have everything you need. All you have to do is use it. You are capable of anything, it is just that no one has told you this yet. You are capable of creating incredible works of art, making unique discoveries, achieving phenomenal results in sport, business and any other profession. All you have to do is turn to your heart, for the heart has access to all knowledge, as well as the previous achievements of all humanity. You just have not asked your heart yet. All great geniuses of art, science, and business have only succeeded in creating masterpieces because they turned to their hearts. WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART ANY WORSE THAN THEIRS? NOTHING!” (281-282)

I don’t share quotes like these to be trendy or seem profound – I do it, because these are messages of truth that you need to hear. You’re here for answers, for clarity, and perhaps even for confirmation, that all these thoughts you’ve had aren’t totally crazy – that you are different, and you can have incredible achievements in your life.

“For many of us, the idea that success only comes from grueling hard work is instilled in us from childhood. Equally engrained is the idea that you have to stubbornly strive towards your goal overcoming all obstacles along the way if you want to succeed. One of our greatest delusions is that we have to fight for happiness, be stubborn, persevering, overcoming countless obstacles, and basically, fighting for a place in the sun. This is a particularly misleading and undermining formula. The fundamental misconception lies in the erroneous conviction that if a person overcomes the obstacles in front of them, happiness will be waiting for them on the other side. This is the illusion – there is no happiness on the other side!” (333)
