Why It’s All Wonderfully Good



by Zen Gardner

If your eyes have been opened you’ll see how simple this truth is. While it can be daunting seeing the beating about the head the world is getting in so many ways via vast lies and conspiracies, what is it ultimately showing you? And most of us probably would never have noticed had the world not been such an upside down, backwards conundrum.

All this serves a wonderful, magnificent purpose.

What we see around us is not reality. It’s a vast manipulated illusion. It’s virtually a trick to see who’ll fall for it.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

And we woke up. Isn’t that cool? It no longer has power over you once you realize that and start to learn to stand back in your true conscious self. It takes some doing getting all the goop off, and is pretty much a wash-rinse-repeat cycle from there on out, but it gets easier.

The key is to glory in it. Dance to the true cosmic rhythms and celebrate the magnificent true reality emanating from the core of the Universe within and without you. We have been given such a wonderful gift to know the Truth of what’s going on around us – the absolutely foolish insanity of the wanna be controllers furious machinations; the nonsensical drive for money, the drunken clamor for attention and fame.

It’s a riot!

Now you see why Buddha smiled so big?

And now we see how the fool on the hill can get such a rush watching the “world spinning round”. Ha!

Watch Your Step

The labyrinth has been a fascination for millennia. Now you know why. It’s a perfect analogy for life. The game of not falling into a black hole while trying to reach your goal is apparently only two dimensions, just like the two knobs you use to move the playing field which in turn moves the ball.

It’s not easy, especially at first, but you get the hang of it as you do it over and over…..and over. Sound familiar?

The really cool thing is, while the end-game seems to be at issue, is the ball moving itself? Or is the manipulated playing field moving the ball? Aha, another dimension!

See how they do it? And you thought you had free will. Ha!

Now notice who’s manipulating the knobs. Ok, good. Once you thought you were inside the game in the person of the ball running blindly through the matrix, now you can see from another vantage point what’s going on and where you’re going. But you could never see it as a little manipulated ball getting shoved around the matrix.

This is how consciousness is with your metal ball called your body and mind. If just your mind is running your life, it’s part of the ball and can’t see crapola. BUT when consciousness, which is looking THROUGH your mind and heart and spirit is awakened and allowed to work through you, you’re seeing the whole board.

And what do you find out? Not only that your true consciousness better be in control of the knobs, but…

It’s just a frikking game!!…(of sorts…)

But if you find yourself running ’round the game room shaking stupefied people’s shoulders and screaming “It’s just a game! Wake up!”, don’t be surprised.

Comes with the territory.

Now pick up your ball and go outside and play. Or is it inside?

Whichever, wake others up. That’s now your calling. Stop hesitating.

Love always,

  1. Aaawwwww yeah Z. You got a bigger and better hammer ringing a larger bell!! An idea to all…make a copy of the black and white pic, frame it and hang or set it where you can see it daily. “Don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” (a ride to a higher dimension, our emphasis)
    Get used to the aches and pains of which will subside in the near future when the body has absorded enough Light.
    HallyLooYaa! Ain’t Life grand?!?!

    • Alright, old men,
      Who are you guys? Fess up!

      I’ve read hundreds and hundreds of blogs and websites about the coming changes; I’ve immersed myself in the study of ascension; I’ve posted questions to the major players; I regularly comment on the better websites; I meditate every day and I’ve seen many past lives I’ve lived, as well as other planets I’ve visited.

      Why do I say this? Because after all this experience, I’ve gained the ability to spot a bona fide, no shit, genuine source.

      You happen to be one of them. So, you gonna answer my question? Who are you guys? You popped up all of a sudden on Z’s site and started making insightful, dead-on observations.

      Who are you guys? A secret sacred society? Ascended masters? Walk-ins? Starseeds?


  2. When I start getting worked up over something ridiculous happening on the outside, I try to stop and ask myself if IN THAT MOMENT I have enough–am I happy, do I have what I need to survive. Always, always, always, I find that when I stop and ask myself this question, I find that I can calm the disquiet on the outside and remain in peace because the answer is always yes. We’re so busy comparing ourselves to other people, manufacturing scarcity where there is none. I’m not denying reality because I recognize what is going on, however, it’s NOT MY REALITY, and so I remain in peace.

  3. Agree with you Karen and Thanks for The good tip. Fast and effettive meditation on The practical side of life. Good to see some good old common sense. Namaste.

  4. It’s true – if you take your mind’s eye high up above the Earth and look down on it, everything looks so trivial. People seem to be running around like headless chickens either trying to justify their existence, or earning enough money to buy things they don’t need. I have found that the less ‘stuff’ I have, the better I feel – lighter and more free. And it helps to remain in the perspective of ‘observer’ rather than a participant.

  5. Z,

    Your two sentences say it all for me:
    “And we woke up. Isn’t that cool?”

    Being detached and seeing the illusion is so cool, I can’t describe it.

    I want a bumper sticker that says, “It’s Just a Ride.”

    Hicks and I were born on the exact same day. We both woke up.
    I think he’s my brother from another place.


  6. Well, Mr. Mike V, sir, we are 5 old men who jumped the big pond together into hell…a place called Nam of which we had no business being. This was a crusade instigated by Cardinal Spellman, i.e. Spelly’s War, that the Black Pope and the Jesuits wanted so that they could extract another genocide both on the jarheads and population of Nam. We made a pact when we left this land, we vowed to return to our homeland as whole as possible. We didn’t return as whole as when we left, but we returned alive and that’s what counts. We are above average intelligence; therefore, were incorporated into a very elite, special but small group termed macVsog. We jumped the fence numerous times with the constant prayer on our lips that our Guardian Angels would get us back to the LZ one more time. Thankfully, we all returned after 3 tours and not necessarily whole; but the main point here is we realized our objective and returned to our homeland.
    We all finished upper level education, 3 of us have doctorates and 2 have masters plus extra hours. We did this in order that we could go through the swinging doors of the power elite’s institutions with credentials that enabled us to do so without any interferences from the gatekeepers. By making this choice, we were able to gain access to information that is not made accessible to the average man or woman. The more ‘true’ knowledge we gained, the more humble we became. We adopted the addage, “think with your Heart and feel with your Mind”. It works for us!
    As we have scoured the web for a handful of sites that weren’t filled with jive ass junk and hype, we came across Z’s site sometime in the past. We gave this site (from old to new) a testing run and we saw that the Gardner had the feel and the insight and attracted those who were positive in their approach to Life. This is the first site on which we felt comfortable to comment, so we do so.
    We don’t know very much, for the more we find that we know, the more we find that we don’t know. So…in our estimation, we don’t know very much. A very wise, highly evolved elderly lady once told us, “if the messenger be an ant, heed him/her”.
    So, sir, that’s about it in a nutshell. If we went further, the expose would turn into a very large book and that’s not needed. We are very thankful that we all lived to see this time in Mother Earth’s history come to fore. This time is a glorious one as our 4 lower bodies garner more Light and adjust to the upper harmonics to ascend with our Beloved Planet Earth. We will have to endure the aches and pains of the adjustment of our physical bodies, but hey, a little pain hurts no one, especially when the prize at the end of the rainbow is the Big Show Pot ‘o Gold.
    We enjoy reading and thinking about all of the participating commenters here. Let us all keep on keepin’ on, keep that large Southern smile and dance to the Fiddlers On High. HallyLooYaa, let’s all dance a jig together!!!!
    p.s. And naw, ain’t no boolsheet or jabberwocky in our group, and we don’t listen to it either.

    • Gentlemen,

      Thank you: for your wisdom, for your insight, for your service and for your heart.

      I only wish that we had enough time for you to write that “very large book.”

      It truly would be an honor to read your collective story.

      Be at peace,


  7. I like all the articles here, very enlightened way to communicate thoughts and feelings. You have said what I wanted to say or thought myself. Thank you.

  8. We’re all havin’ fun now aren’t we?!?!…or should it be, ain’t we?
    Let’s all keep doin’ the 2 step boogie and have more phun, huh?!!? Remain in the now.
    And too, may all of you who are in pain and suffering be touched by the Prime Creator’s Hand, blessed with Light and heal as you can. A time is coming in the very near future that there will be no more pain and suffering. Latch onto that!

  9. This is the only website I have found where the commenters, for the most part, are resonating at a high vibrational frequency.

    Many years ago, shortly after I woke up, I was trying to describe to a friend (who didn’t have a clue) how miserble and alone I felt. I told her that I needed a champion, and she asked me what I ment. I said: “you know the guy who takes care of the boxer between rounds? The guy who squirts water into the boxer’s mouth, mists his face, massages his shoulders, slaps him on the back and says: ‘Go get’em Champ!’ It was futile to try to get her, or anyone else for that matter, to understand. I never did get my champion, all I got for fifteen years was abuse from the many people I tried so hard to help. However, I noticed about six years ago things began to change. People were SLOWLY becoming more open to what I had to say, and some actually wanted to know more. Zen, you have become the champion for all of us who comment on your website. You help us to see that we are not alone, no matter how isolated we seem to be in our daily lives. I thank you for this.

  10. I concur with your first paragraph, Kris. What a pleasure and a privilege to read only posts from such ‘highly evolved’ people.

    Zen, your posts are comfort food to the soul, and they give the mind something to play with throughout the week. Thank you.

  11. Awakening is a process, a journey through the realms of spirit and science, toward a destination of truth and light, knowledge and understanding, and peace. I have traveled along on this journey for decades, and awakening comes exponentially, the more awake the mind and spirit, the faster the ride. I have been reading these Z posts for quite some time, I guess since they first appeared. Zen Gardner, whomever you are (singular or plural), and to those who post here, this site is a comfort and a source of joy. As Morpheus said, “How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?” If you are at the conscious level revealed here, you are in the real.

  12. Awakening from the matrix morass, observing, reading, knowing that “all is not right here anymore”. What is going on here? It is not a secret anymore. Confusion, what did I do to allow this to happen? Surely, I must have participated to some degree in this chaos. Seeking solutions thru meditation, making the “calls”, asking for protection and illumination. Losing fear and all the while swimming in the uncertainty, like everyone else. The call compels the answer.

  13. Great great great job you people do here on this zengardner website. One of the best posts I have come across ever. Keep it up it’s wonderfull read every time.
    “We are what we eat”
    Peace and Harmony
