EPISODE 225: “The Human Racket Is An Illusion That’s Keeping You Trapped!”

July 6, 2022

So, your first two thoughts are probably one, what is the human racket and secondly, how does that racket keep me trapped? (And, keep you struggling for money and prosperity?) 

A racket is defined as “a fraudulent scheme, enterprise, or activity.” 

And, we all are taught the “Human Racket” as soon as we pop out of the womb. We’re taught the rules of life and what life is and is not and what is possible and what is not based upon being from and living within the racket. 

You read that right. We learn the rules of the racket by living in the racket which means we are trapped in the racket. And, the truth is, we don’t even know we are in the racket because everyone else around us is in it too…our parents, and schools, and teachers, and family, and socialization keep us trapped in the racket. 

The racket is poison or death to our higher natures, selves and beings. The racket robs us of our power as cosmic beings, and let me tell you this, cosmic beings don’t play human rackets. 

Have you ever considered this thought, “What did you give up to come to this planet?“ Most people think they are giving up their life when they leave the planet and the truth is that they are regaining their full power as a cosmic being. 

It does not matter if you are “spiritual” or not. You are both physical consciousness and non-physical mind. And, all if this is covered by the laws and properties of physics. 

The bigger point of this episode is that your higher self has abilities that dwarf the abilities of your physical being, and one of those is manifestation. You have the power and ability to manifest just about anything you want and in any amount, and…to make that happen, if you have to quit playing the human racket. 

The human racket works from finite resources, limitations, boundaries and concrete linear thinking based upon your physical senses. 

The higher function of “you” works from no such limitations, and you cannot work from your highest self while living from the lower function of your being.

Transformational Takeaway

Any time I think or hear limiting thoughts, my first thought is, “That’s in the racket, and the racket is an illusion, it’s not mine and does not pertain to me. I am a free mind and not bound by the illusion of limitation.”

Most of you have probably never heard it this way before. And it's very powerful and very freeing. Keep listening.

I'm glad you're here.

 Okay. The human racket is an illusion that's keeping you trapped. What does that mean? First. What is the human racket? Basically the human racket is a racket created by human beings. Next, what is a racket? A racket by definition. As a fraudulent scheme or enterprise or activity. So you may be asking what's so fraudulent about the human racket. Well, most of what you've been taught about life is not true. Literally it's an illusion. It's a racket because most of what you have been taught about life is a fraudulent scheme. Handed down for tens, if not hundreds of generations by people who didn't know any differently. That was their model of the world back then.

And I used the word fraud. Because one of the definitions of the word fraud is deceptive. Now, what I mean by that is people back generations ago, weren't trying to hurt you today. But what they taught us is deceptive today. Because people didn't know back then what we know now. And basically people who didn't know any differently created the racket and it's deceptive for one reason. Because it does not take into account. Human mind. Human function. And consciousness. It's simply a static set of beliefs that's handed to people. And that's why I say it's deceptive which fits into a racket created by human beings. Now let's talk about an illusion. We're talking about a whole lot of things in this particular episode. What is an illusion? An illusion is a thing that is, or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses.

The operative words are interpreted by the senses. Now the senses are all physical. They're all 3d. And when we work by our senses, Meaning our five physical senses. We're working from the lowest function of who we are, which is our 3d version, which means our physical version. And then we're working from illusions. And we've learned all these illusions many years ago, about possibility when it comes to money, health, wellness and life in general.

As a matter of fact, Most of us live our entire lives in buying illusion. Now, let me go back here. You learn to function in the racket because you'll learn it. And the racket is an illusion based upon what I just said. Now here's the thing all of your false beliefs. All of your false beliefs you have,about yourself, which is most beliefs that include a limitation. And particular money. And your abilities and capabilities. They're all an illusion because they are an illusion that comes from within the racket. The racket is a lot like the matrix. And most people are in it, but we don't even know we're in it because we've lived our entire life in it. So we don't even know that we're in a racket in the first place. Let me go somewhere more tangible here.

I was watching a movie a while back. Just kind of, you know, thumbing through the channels one night. I don't think a lot of us have probably seen the movie, A Few Good Men back from the early nineties. And Jack Nicholson is being put on the stand, the witness stand. A little later in the movie. Well, actually, I don't, well, actually I don't recall where it was in the movie. If it's relevant to what I'm saying now. But anyway. So this private was asked how he knew where to go for mealtime. Was it in the manual is what was actually, you know, set in the movie. Was it in the manual? Because the private was saying everything's by the manual. I think I remember. But anyway. He was being examined on the witness stand and he's, and, and he was asked. You know, how do you know where to go for food? Is it in the manual? And he says, no, sir. I guess I just followed the crowd. Now, back to a story that I can make more tangible. Which applies to all of us in some aspect of our lives. I think back to college.

When I went to college. I went to a small private school. I knew absolutely no one. I had only been on the campus once. And literally, I just didn't know anything about the layout of the entire campus. You know, I just didn't know the structure of living on that campus. Let me put it that way. I didn't know the structure. I mean, technically I knew the map and all that kind of good stuff. But I didn't know the structure of my life when I'd be living on that campus there I got that out. I guess in a way that makes sense. I didn't know the structure of my life and how it would, would be lived prior to living on that campus.

And then when I got there, I learned how to live on that campus and where the bookstore was and food and everything else. How and why? By following, as I just mentioned. Following the crowds. I followed the crowd by learning how to follow the crowd as a small baby. Literally when I was in college, I went when I was 18. And I was living by a paradigm that I learned when I was two and three and four and five years old. About how to figure things out. You follow the crowd you watch and you follow the crowd. So what I want to share here. I never questioned the crowd in college and nor did I later in life.

And the reason why is because I never learned to question the crowd. I mean, how does the crowd even know where they're going or what they're doing? Consider that. All the people that you've learned from in your life, how do you even know they're going in the right direction, which they learn that direction, which for most people is the wrong direction. They learn that direction by following their parents who followed their parents, who followed their parents, who followed their parents and their parents and their parents and their parents. Back many, many, many generations. So basically that's how the crowd. Learn to be in the crowd is by following the crowd. But the question goes to. Who set the pace. And who set the direction. And the possibilities for the crowd. And who set that was people. The crowd many, many, many, many generations ago. That we're living in a different time different opportunity, different understanding about the world, different, different understanding about the mind. So the crowd created the racket but the racket is outdated and most of us live from the racket. And then we never question the racket. Just like I had mentioned the basic example of me in college.

And you can sit here and say, well, I'm smarter than that. Well, most of you. It might be smarter than that. But you're still living in the racket. And many times, not even knowing that you're living in the racket. Okay. So what I want to do after all of that is I want to shift gears here. And I want to ask you a question. What does the racket know about money and manifestation? You know, to give you a simple example, look at the racket in the United States and the racket is the masses. And there's your answer. And the U S alone, 78% of the population lives, paycheck to paycheck. So, what did the racket learn? And what does the racket teach other people on the racket? Basically the racket teaches us only, and we can only get ahead in life. If we, and Iknow you've heard this, if we work hard, And we get a good education and we put our nose to the grindstone. And we struggle. And we actually invest our blood, sweat, and tears. At our sweat equity. And I want you to notice something here. All of this sounds good on paper. We've all learned it. But it's all physical. It's all 3d and it's all finite. Finite it's limited because it's limited. To the restrictions of the 3d in the physical.

Jim Fortin: Okay. Let me segue from the episode at hand for just a moment. And I want to talk about money. If you feel like you're trapped with money issues. I have an exclusive event coming up on July the 14th.. It's free and you're going to want to be part of it on this online event. I'm going to share with you an ancient process that I've learned from the shaman that I work with. Don Xavier. And I'm also going to be talking about your invisible money trap. And that is what has kept you stuck. Why? Because you can't change what you can't see. My goal is for you to start having your best money you're ever. The program is free in terms of monetary charge and all it's going to cost you is a few hours of time. Join me on this call and we are literally, and I do mean literally going to burn your old money stories. So let's burn your past money stories and the way that we do that, your next step is go to go, and join me on the 14th. See you then. Back to the episode.

So for the most part. All of the beliefs that the racket gives you about money. Are basically false beliefs because what they do not do. Is, they do not take into consideration. Human consciousness. Human mind. They all take into account. The racket takes into account. The teachings from many, many, many generations ago. And it does not take into mind as I just said, human consciousness. And a fact of science consciousness is not local. You're thinking is consciousness. It is not local, which means it is not housed only within your cranium. It's expansive. It's like, it goes out like a radio signal and reaches out all around. You. So, let me ask you a question. What has the racket given you? When it comes to your thinking about manifestation. And you can sit there and you can ponder a thing. What did the racket give me about money and manifestation. That's easy. Look at your bank account. Plain and simple. That is your racket objectified.

That's what the racket gave you. Is your self image and your identity, and you objectify that through your behavior and that becomes your money. So if you want to look at what the racket taught you and gave you about money. Look at your financial situation now. It's becoming pretty apparent. The racket is not. It's not your friend. It's not the place to live from within or to live from. The rocket teaches all 3d manifestation. Everything is I said earlier comes from physical effort. And as I said, physical effort is finite and it's limited. But. And your mind, which is not local, meaning housed only in your cranium. And we all know this is unlimited. Which means your money opportunities, your money potential, your ability to manifest money is what it's unlimited. By the rules of mind and the nature of mind. Not by the nature of the finite physical world and physical activity.

Let's have a little fun here. Imagine for a moment that you could text your soul. And you said. Hey soul. How easy is it to manifest money? How much money can I attract? Are there limits to how much money I got attract. Does it run out? And can only a certain amount of people tap into an unlimited supply of money. How do you think your soul. What answer. Those five questions. Remember. Soul is also divine. And unlimited mind. So how do you think you're a soul? What answer those questions? Now. Look at your environment. And how does your environment, which is physical answer those questions. And what is physical is what I talked about early.

These stories that we learn in the racket about money being hard, and you have to struggle and only certain people can have money and it's limited and you have to hoard money. So again, what do you think your soul would say to those five questions? And what does your physical environment say to those five questions? Next. Let's keep on going. Text your soul. Another question. Hey soul. How do I repel money? And soul responds back. You were pellet by living in the racket. And by living what the racket has taught you about money. And taught you about work and taught you about limitation. And taught you that only X, Y, Z, people can have certain things and taught you that it's hard to make and taught you that you can lose it and taught you that you have to hoard it and taught you.

There will never be enough. That's what living in the racket. Which again for the third time now and me saying it again. Many many generations taught you many years ago, and they're the ones who created the racket and that's what the racket teaches you. And as long as you keep living in the racket, that's going to be, the limitation is going to be your life experience. Next. The tolls going to. Next. Your soul's going to text you back and it's going to say. Anyone can have money. And as much as they want. When they stop playing by the racket of human rules about money and manifestation.

Then your soul text back again and says, you know, Your human racket says it's hard to make money. And as long as you stay. And that system. And that racket. It will always be hard for you. Now speaking of body and brain, of course your brain is in your physical body. So you have to work from your physical body. But here's where things have changed. You have to change and that you have to attune your mind, which is non-local outside of the racket. Not to the limitations of the racket. Because all of your thoughts, uh, money limitations, aren't illusion. And that's part of the racket. So I'm going to slow down here and share this. Any time you experience lack. Or fear around money. You must recognize that the fears are an illusion created by the racket. They're not real. Because the racket is not real. It's something created many, many centuries and hundreds of years ago in generations ago. It's not real. I'm going to repeat. Any time you experience lack or fear around money? You have to recognize that those fears. R an illusion created by the racket. They're not real because the racket is real.

And as I alluded to earlier, if you keep living in the racket, that's not real. You'll keep recreating what you learn to create by living in the racket. Now. You have to look at it this way, your mind. Which for the third time is non-local is air quote, soul. Attuned it's energetic. But your body, which is physical is racket. Attuned. And all of the racket and all the rules in the racket were learned on the planet by the body. So you have to recognize that when you attune to your racket, as opposed to your soul and your spirit and divineness, when you attune to the racket, you were then attuned to the limitations of the racket. You know, I also want to say that the rules of the system, which I said earlier, I used the word they're an illusion. And they don't exist except in the individual minds of people. The rules. Of the racket. Do not exist outside of the individual minds. That I've been conditioned. By the racket. Think about that.

So you have to manifest from your mind, not from your body. Because your body knows limits. And your mind. When it comes to anything. And in particular to this episode about money, Your mind knows no limits. Because your mind also operates ponder this. It's not local. Now, when I said that, how many of you thought, okay, it's not just contained in my head and my cranium, but it kinda is like all around me. Maybe like a web. How about this? What if your mind. Isn't even contained. By this planet, meaning your mind can travel beyond this planet. Your mind can travel galaxies. Multiple galaxies. There are no limits to mind. So you have to abandon your lower body. For your higher mind. And that's where manifestation really happens.

I want to share something here. All the motivational speakers and the people here, all the personalities and social media will all say things like, you know what you have to believe. You have to believe. You have to believe that you can have money. What I want to share with you is that phrase, you have to believe. Is a rule of consciousness. And it's a rule upon conscious consciousness that comes from the racket, but the racket doesn't know rules. So the rules are made by the racket and the racket imposes the rules on consciousness. But again, the consciousness does not know rules. Therefore, the rules about you have to believe that's an illusion.

You know, the problem with a strategy about believing is that if you never believe that you're never going to create, and if you never create, then you never believe, and it's all a broken cycle, it's all a broken merry-go-round. And the only way to get off the merry-go-round is to get off the Merry go round of the racket of believing that you have to believe you can have money. You simply have to have the vibration and frequency of money. You may want to also go back to add to that. Go back to episode. I believe number nine, when I talk about how most of us use the law of attraction to repel money. As opposed to attracting money. So, what you want to do is you want to dump the racket. Literally you want to dump the racket because the racket is your trap. And I'm going to give you a simple exercise here.

You may even want to write this down. I do want to be a hundred percent transparent here. I grew up poor. As I mentioned before, you know, in the episode, and I grew up with all the things that I mentioned earlier, you have to hoard your money. You have to save your money. You have to get a good education. You have to get a good job. All these kind of things. And mainly I grew up with you have to work hard for your money. I was even taught. You have to struggle for money. And then I was also taught those are good values. I mean, you're a hardworking person. That's a great value. And if it's a great value. Paddle by head by dad. You're a better person.

Well, that's all a bunch of crap and it's all part of the racket. So the reason I'm telling you that is because today, and I mean, this humbly. I attract multiple millions of dollars per year. And personal revenue. And just being fully transparent. Fully transparent. Is I live in this same world that you do physically. And that being said, there are things that are happening in the world with money. We have many things going on, like inflation and different things and all these things that send a lot of people in the fear. Is it affecting me a little bit. Is it going to bankrupt? Me not even close. And I even use that as an extension. I mean, it said it's not even close. It's not even in my mind.

Not even close to my mind many years ago, it might've been. But what I want to tell you is that little twinge can actually pop up every so often. Saying things like, Ooh, okay. Watch the economy, watch your investments. Watch this, watch that. I mean, heck I'm on the planet too, and I'm learning my lessons and I'm going to tell you how I learned. To free myself. From any of that. I don't have fears about money. I used to, and I just have a lot of them. Many of you have many fears about money. And I want to share with you how to lessen those feelings or eliminate them. First you have to recognize again that that's a racket. It's a system. It's an illusion. It's deceptive. It's not real. It's created by a human mind and not even a, a recent human mind taking into account human consciousness. It was created generations ago. Okay. I've said that for the fourth time now.

So it's a racket. And that racket is not real. So, this is what I say to myself. Anytime, anything pops in my mind. This is what I say. That's coming from the racket. And the racket is an illusion. It's not mine and it does not pertain to me. I am free of mind. And not bound. By the illusion and limitation. Of the racket. That's exactly verbatim. I wrote that down a long time ago. And that's what I say to myself. And the second I say that I automatically know I automatically.

Except the world is a racket, as I've talked about, I'm not going to go into, into it the fifth time. Learned through generations. I'm not playing that game. I'm not playing in that racket. And anytime I get into any thought about limitation or. Reservation about anything relative to money or even investing money. And that does pertain to me because I live in the world. I recognize wait. That's not coming from consciousness because there are no limits in consciousness. That's coming from the racket and the racket is an illusion. It's not mine and does not pertain to me. I am free of mind and not bound by the illusions and limitations of. The racket. And I want to share with you when I started that. And I started saying that. For me, I already had a lot in my life in terms of manifestation. But, you know what. It's completely freeing and this for you will make manifestation a lot easier. Why because the reason you don't manifest is because go back to episode number nine, I believe the one on the law of attraction, repelling money.

The reason you don't manifest is because you repel money. And you repel money. Why? Because I don't mention it in that episode, you repel the money because. Because of what? Because you're living in the racket. And as long as you live in the racket, you're going to be chasing money and repelling money. So for crying out loud, stop living in the racket. And a tune yourself. To, to mind. The consciousness. And recognize that what you project in the consciousness. Literally. Uh, non-local travels the universe. And it comes back to you. Because. Like in a double slit experiment. Your physical reality. We'll literally bend to your consciousness. But your consciousness is affected by the racket. So how about this throw that damn racket away. Okay, thanks for listening. And I'll catch you over on another episode. Bye-bye.
