Individuality, Embodiment, and the Anchoring of a Higher Frequency

bigstock-Man-with-conceptual-spiritual-51251590

The struggle and internal friction experienced when trying to fit into a society that has become normalized with pathological values has pushed some of us into questioning our world and our cult-ure. Instead of drowning the little voice inside, engaging in avoidance strategies and jumping into the “consensus” rat race, we stop following the crowd and start seeking truth, trying to understand the world and ourselves in the process. Oftentimes, this journey is met with ridicule, resistance and attacks from others, and so it can become a lonely path to trod. There are forces at work who do not wish for humanity to awaken due to their own scarcity-consciousness interests – it’s the archetypal battle of Light vs. Dark; a spiritual war that is taking place both within and without ourselves.

Topics:

– Vulnerability and Compassion
– The Dark Side of the Internet
– Limitations of 3D Thinking
– Individual Journey
– Hyperdimensional Control and Interference
– Limitations of Psychological Self-Work and Analysis
– Self-Love and Anchoring a Higher Frequency
– Fighting Evil
– Personal Sovereignty
– Intuition and the Wisdom of the Body
– The Divine Plan and a New Dawn

Israel and Gaza – Lessons in History and an Opportunity for Humanity

10489660_10203831140726545_262717287797039443_n

We live in precious times. A lot of darkness is coming to light for us to look at and become conscious of. The brutal attacks on Gaza, where people are trapped with no way out, ask us to listen to our conscience and empathy and act on it. People are protesting world-wide. The death toll of Palestinian civilians, women, and children keeps rising by the day. It is good to see how many people start to speak out and protest, but keep in mind that this has been going on for 50+ years. It is systematic ethnic cleansing that has nothing to do with self-defense. This is not a war. It is slaughter by one of the most modern military in the world, financed with American tax money. …

Psychopaths in Power – The Elephant in the Living Room

psychos_in_power

There is one topic that stands like the proverbial elephant in our collective living room, still unacknowledged, ignored or misunderstood by many people. It’s the underlying issue for our society and world’s problems. This is the topic of Psychopathy, especially Psychopaths in places of power and how it affects our world and society at large. More and more research and studies have been published that prove the existence of this intra-species predator, yet it still is being avoided and not sincerely studied and looked at by many well-meaning people who work actively trying to make this world a better place. They focus on the symptoms, but not the underlying causes.

A couple of weeks ago I attended a talk in Topanga Canyon by Marianne Williamson who is running for congress. I was reluctant to go, knowing about the futility to change the political system through the system. I’ve written about it before: “Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown” as well as “The Illusion of Choice”. However, considering that I like some of her past work and we have shown a clip of her talk at a festival in our film “Love, Reality, and the Time of Transition” I decided to see what she had to say. …

History, Lies, and the Importance of Self-Work and Critical Thinking

Recently I’ve watched the documentary “Adolf Hitler – The greatest story never told” and have been digesting the information and contemplating on the implications, mainly about history in general and how important it is to get at the truth and understand and know our true history, because it does affect our present and future in ways most of us are not aware of. Shutting it out, denying or ignoring it, while just hoping for a better future (especially in New Age way of “just focus on the positive and ignore the negative”) won’t work and is actually working against “us”.

My intention with this article is not about getting into the details presented in this documentary. What I’d like to address is the importance of critical thinking, self-work and understanding of our history.

“Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past.”

– George Orwell, 1984

9f1d1c72923dfa0de3977fa1ac9cf893

Facing the truth about our history and what has really happened in our world as opposed to what we’ve been told and taught by official culture is not an easy task. Not only does it require discernment, critical thinking and research, but also, most importantly, sincere self-work, de-programming ourselves from the conditioning and lies of official culture most of us aren’t even aware of, essentially the lies we tell ourselves for the sake of self-calming. We create and maintain buffers not to “rock the boat” to stay in our comfort zone, go on “living” and “fitting in”, shutting ourselves off from any information that may disturb the bubble of our subjective reality. We believe that nothing will affect us as long as we put a blind eye on these topics. That’s the belief of many people, especially in the so-called New Age with its distorted idea of “you create your own reality“.

Some people say, we need to stop pointing out the problem and what is wrong with the world but present solutions. Yes, constructive solutions (not wishful thinking) are needed, but if they are not based on understanding what the “problem” truly is (i.e. understanding our true history and the relating topics of Psychopathy and Ponerology), then these “solutions” are built on a false and shaky foundation, as history is repeating itself if we don’t learn from it and we will create (and are already creating) more problems down the road, regardless of how well-meaning our intentions are. The most shocking realization I had watching this documentary was how much of what has been going on back then is still going on today. It really showed how far away we actually are from a significant “shift in consciousness“.

Lies are like viruses. They can spread quickly and far, even without awareness of the ones infected by them. We all can spread disinformation and lies unconsciously if we don’t make the effort to question, engage our critical thinking abilities and network with others to gain objectivity (of course there is the denial of post-modern sophists who claim that there is no objectivity or truth.) Then there is the disease of “social status”, our self-importance , which is in the way of speaking out because some of us are so concerned about what others think of us, be it our family, friends, co-workers or even Facebook “friends”. We are more concerned about ourselves, our image and our careers than standing up for truth and justice, because speaking the truth about our world may not make us much money and may interfere with our personal goals.

This narcissistic behavior is very prevalent in this day and age, especially in many “spiritual” inclined people with their distorted view on love, positivity and enlightenment, mistaking spirituality for hedonistic pleasure. Then there is laziness, the disease of boredom and the ever shrinking attention spans which keep people from reading or even watching this documentary. “Having no time” is really mostly an excuse because you always can “make time” to educate yourself, even if it’s just a little bit every day. If you have time to be on Facebook, you certainly have time to read books or watch documentaries and certainly time to speak out about it.

Fact is we are all connected and everything that happens and has happened in our world does affect us, regardless if it’s something in our personal lives or in a country far away.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

As a fb friend wrote recently:

“By exacting education, objective discernment and of course a lot of other healing work, this all works with uncovering what perceptions we basically rely on and extend into our lives, deceiving ourselves. Interestingly, there are a lot of people in total fear of looking at the truth, as in reflecting this story and other famous atrocities that have happened in history, they cannot stand watching or reading about it. Be not afraid to reveal what comes up for you, as it is clearly a plutonian exercise and part of deep healing.”

Another person also addressed this issue of “making the darkness conscious”, relating it to the distorted understanding of being “positive”:

“The ability to hold Light is directly proportional to the courage to see darkness. Choosing to see just one creates distortions and illusions. It amazes me that something so simple and common sense can be so difficult to even discuss with ‘spiritual’ people who insist on remaining ‘positive’. Actually, this avoidance is based on unacknowledged fear that their inner light might be somewhat ‘dispersed’ by seeing darkness and therefore not giving the light much credit at all. I think there’s also fear that they might somehow become ‘tainted’ or the darkness might ‘manifest’ in some form in their lives. But the opposite is true; it is the fear, especially unacknowledged, that has much more chance to manifest than darkness exposed to daylight and investigation. Just like we must be fearless about our own inner shadow, we must also be fearless about seeing this huge shadow of humanity. Or we will have the power to transform precisely nothing, within or without.”

After I finished watching the documentary I picked up the latest book of historian Laura Knight-Jadczyk, “Comets and the Horns of Moses”. At times the universe provides the right book and passage at the right time. What I read very much related to what I just saw and was thinking about. She points out the necessity to engage in sincere self-work so our views and ideas about history and the world is not filtered and distorted through our conditioned bias, emotional attachments and cultural/familial beliefs:

“[…]Anyone who seeks to do research of any kind needs to always keep their own biases in mind and make efforts to calibrate their perceptions accordingly. (If you think that you have no bias, you are suffering from a particular bias! Please read “Strangers to Ourselves” by psychologist Timothy Wilson and “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman.)[…]”

With regards to lies and history and relating it to this documentary, consider what she wrote here:

“[…]I would like to ask the reader a question to set the stage for what I want to convey here. Have you ever, as a child, been accused of something you didn’t do, either by your parents, teachers or other ‘authorities’? And if so, were you punished unfairly for this something you didn’t do? Do you remember how it felt?

As you remember , can you feel the frustration, the helpless anger and resentment that you “told the truth and no one believed you”? YOU know what you did or did not do, and no one can take that away from you. But they have taken away from you the right for that truth to be known by others, which means they have taken away the right of others to know the truth about you. You have been slandered and punished, and there is NO WAY you can prove that it was wrong and unjust, and all the other people will have a ‘history’ of you that is false. In fact, this knowledge that others will have false memories of you, will have false ideas about what you did until they die, hurts almost worse than the punishment. What is more, in a vague way, you can perceive that those who believe the lie have been deprived of something valuable about you, a sharing of the real you: the truth that you did not do what you were accused of doing, and that you did tell the truth. A barrier has been erected between you and the others – the barrier of a lie.

Now expand that concept just a little bit. Imagine that such false accusations, false stories, are being told about history at large, the history that defines your origins. The only difference is that it is not a personal lie against you, and you do not therefore have the advantage of knowing that it is certainly a lie. Instead it is a social lie, a lie about your origins and what is real and what it is not, that has been widely disseminated and accepted as truth by most people.

Imagine that people are born, live their lives, and die believing lies where they came from and how they got where they are, and the reasons for all exists in the world around us. Just like the people who believed the lies about something you didn’t do, people have been separated from the truth by the barrier of lies.

As you probably know, the event from your childhood may have been small in terms of your entire life history, but still, there are those who judge you based on that lie, and all your subsequent history follows from those beliefs about you. Now you, and everyone else who believes those lies, judge the world and other people based on the lies about human origins and what is real. And the result is very, very bad.[…]”

In another discussion about the film someone said:

 “It’s interesting to learn the history and also to observe the internal process of having cultural beliefs challenged.”

Yes, especially observing the internal process and how deeply programmed we are, the friction that occurs inside when presented with information that contradicts our long held beliefs. That’s when most people stop and deny, because piercing through that conditioning can be very painful and vulnerable. It’s always been for me. It’s part of “the work”. But once you let the internal programs break down under the light/sword of truth and work through the discomfort of accepting information that contradicts what you have believed most of your life and what most of the world believes (not mistaking that for blind belief of anything that comes down the pipe line, but always engaging your critical thinking to the best of your abilities, and networking with others who can help point out your subjective blind spots that you cannot see), then you truly raise your consciousness.

Gaining Knowledge with discernment and doing the internal work to dislodge any cultural/social programs is the path towards awakening, not thinking “happy thoughts” or “focusing on love”…well, yes, focus on love, but love in its truest sense is Knowledge, not necessarily an emotion or feeling or what most people think of “Love”. It’s a state of consciousness beyond emotions which are just the gateway towards it. Making the shadow conscious within and without is so important in this process. Unfortunately this is what many people try to avoid and suppress. That’s why they shy away from information presented in this documentary or other information that causes internal friction.

Spirituality has become so corrupted to the point that it is encouraged NOT to engage the mind and NOT to think, but just “feel” and be “heart-centered”. That doesn’t mean to avoid feelings, but use them to work through them with your mind engaged, actively gaining Knowledge to learn and un-learn at the same time. It’s about learning HOW to think, which many people don’t know as it’s evident in the many logical fallacies they engage in and are not aware of.

A great tool that helps to to think critically is the Trivium. The Trivium means in Latin “the three ways” or “the three roads” forming the foundation of a medieval liberal arts education. It has been suppressed and taken out of most of modern education, where people are not taught HOW to think but WHAT to think. The three ways of the Trivium are grammar, logic and rhetoric. In that order. Grammar asks the questions of the Who, What, Where, and the When of a subject, discovering, researching, and ordering facts of reality. It comprises basic – systematic Knowledge. Logic answers the Why of a subject, the conclusions based on grammar/research leading to Understanding. Rhetoric provides the How of a subject, applying Knowledge (grammar) and Understanding (logic) expressively leading to Wisdom, or, in other words, useable knowledge and understanding.

887103_10151516398344375_1294531986_o

The most common fallacy is to put one’s logic (conclusions) before grammar (research). We can see this in many people who have opinions about topics they haven’t sincerely researched first. This usually leads to numerous other logical fallacies, like strawman arguments, ad hominem, tu quoque/you too fallacy, bandwagon, appeal to authority, the texas sharpshooter, etc. .

Learning, understanding and applying the Trivium can help to not waste time and energy in unproductive discussions about a topic and it also provides a systematic framework to research any given subject.

‪The Trivium Method vs. The Classical Trivium: A Briefing by Kevin Cole‬:

However, besides learning how to think critically we also need to engage in sincere self-work to calibrate our “reading instrument” (the self) and perceptions. Everyone has subjective blind spots and biases based on upbringing and cultural/social conditioning. Dislodging these programs and unconscious tendencies to lies to ourselves and others takes tremendous work and effort. True self-work, the process of deprogramming and understanding oneself more objectively, cannot be done by oneself. We can become aware of our programs on our own to a certain extent through self-observation, but we may also lie to ourselves and justify our views and actions because we simply cannot see ourselves clearly. Feedback/mirroring from others who are engaged in the same work is required to become more aware of the lies we tell ourselves.

This also includes emotional cleansing because we can’t trust our feelings and emotions 100%. Much of what we feel in reaction to certain information can be conditioned responses that have nothing to do with the information or situation at hand. Many people are actually addicted to these emotions which are a hindrance to self-awareness and the process of awakening. There are the programs of “self-calming”, “make/be nice” and of course cognitive dissonance, re-enforcing the buffers and armor that can keep us in a subjective tunnel vision, essentially “dreaming to be awake” and living mechanically without true free will.

A great book in that regard is “Strangers to Ourselves” by psychologist Timothy Wilson. It explains how we simply do NOT know ourselves and are slaves to our unconscious programs and bias:

“Why it is that people often do not know themselves very well (e.g., their own characters, why they feel the way they do, or even the feelings themselves)? And how can they increase their self-knowledge? There are undoubtedly many reasons for a lack of self-insight; people may be blinded by their hubris (a favorite Greek and Shakespearean theme), confused, or simply never take the time to examine their own lives and psyche very carefully. The reason…is that much of what we want to know about ourselves resides outside of conscious awareness….

People develop habitual ”tendencies of thought” that are nonconscious and that these thought patterns can lead to “unconscious prejudices which we thus form, [that] are often stronger than the conscious; and they are the more dangerous, because we cannot knowingly guard against them.“…

It can thus be fruitless to try to examine the adaptive unconscious by looking inward. It is often better to deduce the nature of our hidden minds by looking outward at our behavior and how others react to us, and coming up with a good narrative….

In fact there is evidence that it can be counterproductive to look inward too much. We will see evidence that introspection about feelings can cause people to make unwise decisions and to become more confused about how they feel. To be clear, I am not disparaging all kinds of introspection. Socrates was only partly wrong that the “unexamined life is not worth living.” The key is the kind of self-examination people perform, and the extent to which people attempt to know themselves solely by looking inward, versus looking outward at their own behavior and how others react to them….

A disadvantage of a system that processes information quickly and efficiently is that it is slow to respond to new, contradictory information. In fact we often unconsciously bend new information to fit our preconceptions, making it next to impossible to realize that our preconceptions are wrong….

It is fair to say that the tendency for the adaptive unconscious to jump to conclusions, and to fail to change its mind in the face of contrary evidence, is responsible for some of society’s most troubling problems….

The adaptive unconscious is an older system designed to scan the environment quickly and detect patterns, especially ones that might pose a danger to the organism. It learns patterns easily but does not unlearn them very well; it is a fairly rigid, inflexible inference maker. It develops early and continues to guide behavior into adulthood….

The human mind is an incredible achievement, perhaps the most amazing in the history of the Earth. This does not mean, however, that it is an optimal or perfectly designed system. Our conscious knowledge of ourselves can be quite limited, to our peril….”

This work never stops and we need to adjust our view of reality as new information comes in. Seeking truth doesn’t result in an end of “knowing it all”. It’s a continues process that expands and changes. It is tightly connected to the inner work we are engaging in, helping us to sharpen intuition as well. So the work is two fold, on an emotional level and intellectual level. Body-awareness is key in that regard. Hence I strongly recommend to have a consistent body-mind practice as well, such as yoga, Qi Gong, dance or getting bodywork on a regular basis. Also, diet affects the way we feel and think. Wheat, gluten, sugar and grains have detrimental effects on our brain, physical and emotional body. There is much research out there these days which has proven that.

It’s important to observe the internal process and how deeply programmed we are, the friction that occurs inside when presented with information that contradicts our long held beliefs. That’s when many people stop and deny, engaging in black and white thinking, because piercing through that conditioning can be very painful and vulnerable. It’s always been for me. It’s part of “the work”, so humility is needed, admitting to ourselves that we have been wrong about some things we thought to be true. Avoiding this vulnerability results in logical fallacies and rationalizations. It also relates to anger which can become a buffer to avoid deeper feelings of vulnerability. However, “anger” in itself is not bad. It’s not about suppressing it but understanding where it’s coming from. There is righteous anger that moves us to take action and speak out against injustices and there is “projected anger” when we project our own issues on someone else. Even humor can in many cases be an unconscious buffer to avoid confronting our own unacknowledged wounds.

Separating “the work” to seek truth from our self-image/public image is key, so it doesn’t get polluted by internal considering or the the need to be “accepted”. Considering other factors from an esoteric perspective and forces working through people in order to vector us away from this path adds even more complexity but is crucial to understand as well. As my friend Humberto Braga said so eloquently:

“When breaking beyond conventional limitations, people will always try to mock, guilt, and shame you for being the bearer of new knowledge and uncomfortable realizations. They will distort your expanded perception through their tiny lens. They will try to make it seem as though you are wrong for being who you are and they’ll try to make you feel small. Your playing small does not serve your greater purpose. There is nothing enlightened about limiting your path in life to comfort the illusions of others. Those who seek Objective Truth are bringers of light in to a very uncomfortable darkness, and it will seek to stop you in any way it can. We must not give in to the darkness that tells us to dim ourselves. Every courageous step toward Objective Truth is what liberates others to do the very same. This is the battle to awaken and we must not lose sight of this objective.”

Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown

“One phenomenon all ponerogenic groups and associations have in common is the fact that their members lose (or have already lost) the capacity to perceive pathological individuals as such, interpreting their behavior in fascinated, heroic, or melodramatic ways. When the habits of subconscious selection and substitution of thought-data spread to the macrosocial level, a society tends to develop contempt for factual criticism and to humiliate anyone sounding an alarm.”

– Andrew M. Lobaczewski, Political Ponerology

The presidential elections in the US are coming up soon. Many people argue for their chosen candidate to vote for. As usual it is Republicans vs. Democrats. Romney vs. Obama. I’ve written before about the futility of engaging in this circus side show that is designed to give the illusion of choice and simply re-enforces the prison without bars where people get distracted by the shadows on the wall in a global Stockholm Syndrome. It doesn’t speak much for a “shift in consciousness” or “global awakening”, especially if many self-proclaimed “spiritual” and “aware” folks still ignore the facts and are driven by identification and wishful thinking, participating in a system that is deeply ponerized.

Lately I’ve received some messages and comments from such individuals on Facebook stating that I should stop the “Obama bashing” because it’s important that Romney doesn’t win.

“My bro, agree and disagree. … However Romney MUST be stopped by any means necessary. Please do not bash Obama this month, Romney must not win.”

or this one:

“So, I recognize the limits of our system and the many pathologies within it and, like you, do what I can to change things. Core question: would you prefer to vote for Obama, Romney or not vote at all? (I’m already decided as I work directly with some Obama appointees who are as committed to system change as I am….)”

and this one:

“Given that our current political reality is so grim that we are locked into either Obama or Romney (as in, there’s no way that a 3rd party candidate will win in 2012), is it not most appropriate to actively opt for the preferable candidate WHILE working as hard as one can to transcend this broken system? As in, as long as we are stuck in this game, for now, why not play the hand we’re dealt as best we can, for now, while we put our full effort into transforming the system itself…? […] So, I can certainly see why it would be clear to opt for opting out of the election-system if one only could only choose between buying fully in or buying fully out, but isn’t there a more ‘mature’ option: to play the game as best we can while we’re stuck in it WHILE doing everything we can to get unstuck from it? […] My take is that to get to where (I think) you (and I) would like to get, 4 more years of Obama would be a preferable environment for that process of transcendence of our current ‘Matrix’ to occur inside of than a Romney environment. …”

There are more messages and comments of the same kind I’ve received lately. What they are saying basically comes down to this: “I agree with what you are saying…..BUT I’ll vote for Obama anyway since he’s the “lesser evil”.

If they’d truly recognize the “limits of our system and the many pathologies within it“, then they would understand that voting and supporting any of the two candidates is not only a waste of energy, but also does more harm than any good, despite their well-meaning intent.

When I receive messages like that I provide information that would help them to see the point clearer. The system cannot be changed from within or without until the most important topic for humanity is addressed and understood: Psychopathy, Political Ponerology and how it affects our society. Rarely do any of the people writing me take the time to study this crucial subject. Either their ignore the information or just skim over it, filtered through their already made-up beliefs and convictions. It’s the classical mistake of putting one’s logic (conclusions) before grammar (research).

The main issue is this: It’s not really about ideologies, socialism vs. corporatism vs. capitalism, republicans vs. democrats, Romney vs. Obama, rich vs. poor, etc. . It’s also not about just looking for new systems or economic models, ecological or otherwise. Neither is it about the tea party vs. occupy movement or any movement for that matter. Many well-meaning folks who introduce “solutions” or new models to change the system still mistake the symptoms for the cause and do not go deep enough.

I’m not saying not to look for solutions of that kind, however, nothing will change fundamentally until we educate ourselves about Psychopathy and Political Ponerology and how it affects society and “normal” people, for the “virus” of Psychopathy will also spread through any alternative models/movements. Many people make too many assumptions about this topic or deny it off hand without having sincerely researched it. About 6% of humanity are genetic psychopaths, most of them to be found in positions of power. They have no inherent ability to feel compassion, empathy or regret, but they can emulate and fake these characteristics to manipulate and control “normal” humans. In short, they have no conscience by birth.

This knowledge (based on science that has been suppressed for obvious reasons), combined with offering sustainable economic solutions, would initiate true lasting change. It’s the foundation to work from. Anything else will eventually disintegrate, even if it looks/sounds promising at the beginning. Many may accept willingly that psychopaths exist. What they don’t seem to accept is the extensive research on psychopathy, how common they are, how untreatable they are, and how they affects all of us. Knowledge protects! Would you still vote for Obama or Romney, knowing they are psychopaths, hiding behind a “mask of sanity“?

The system is also not broken. It is designed that way to keep people imprisoned out of their own choice in a global Stockholm Syndrome. It’s not an irrational “conspiracy theory” but fact that can be proven with a careful study of our real history (not the one you learned in school) including Psychopathology. The word “conspiracy” alone has been so distorted that people don’t even understand its basic definition anymore. Entirely reasonable questioning can be ridiculed by labeling it a conspiracy theory. In the popular imagination the word conspiracy theory has been given a connotation of paranoid delusion. This has been done by deliberately circulating implausible allegations, giving them press and then shooting them down, by character assassination attacks against people asking inconvenient questions, by intimidation and by a host of other manipulation techniques.

Most people have “opinions” about something they haven’t sincerely researched or looked into. The fact that many people don’t recognize that there is essentially NO difference between Romney and Obama and that the two party system is a set-up where we essentially have NO choice, also shows that they don’t fully “recognize the limits of our system“.

It is quite tragic, because their way of reasoning and that of many other well-meaning people is based on wishful thinking and projecting qualities into Obama he doesn’t have. Both, Obama and Romney support the big lies, which none of them address. The ONLY difference they have are in irrelevant issues that are merely distractions and straw man/red herring arguments.

For example, I asked the person who claimed to work with “Obama appointees” the question, do you and the Obama appointees you work with address the following issues?

– The lie of 9/11

More than anything else 9/11 is responsible for the the majority of political decisions made by any given administration since that event. It has been used to start wars, killing millions of people under the pretext of the fake “war on terror”. It has taken freedoms away with Obama having actually a WORSE record in that regard than Bush. Just at the end of last year he signed the NDAA into law authorizing the White House’s ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process. He also said “The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.” He’s giving the illusion that he’s actually a “good guy”. It doesn’t occur to many people the utter contradiction in his words (not fully supporting that bill) and actions (signing it anyway). This is a good example of Obama’s politics in general. He says one thing and does another. In fact he’s a pathological liar. Just looking at his “promises” and what he has actually done or not done should be giant red flag.

Nothing will change until the truth about 9/11 comes to light. It is the ultimate litmus test. This is the one thing that defines everyone over the course of these early years of this new century. Everyone in government and every field of endeavor the world over is defined by their position on this event. The official 9/11 story is a lie that has shaped the world in ways that affect EVERYONE. Being silent about it at this point after 11 years is equivalent of complicity in one of the biggest crimes in history. More importunately do you believe in the official 9/11 fairy tale? Anyone who believes the official 9/11 story after over 11 years is living in a world of illusion and denial and actually contributing to entropy. Have you done sincere research about this topic? And if so, do you bring it up to your Obama pals without the insincere contrived need to stay “politically correct”? There is no such thing as “politically correctness” for the ones who sincerely seek truth and speak out about it. Nothing will change significantly if the truth of 9/11 doesn’t come to light and ALL presidential candidates continue supporting that lie. Period. It’s about making the darkness conscious. In short, people who still believe the official 9/11 story are either willfully ignorant, brainwashed or have simply no conscience.

– Monsanto and GMO

It’s ironic that many anti-Monsanto activists support Obama, the man who has appointed Monsanto chills into government and who has supported Monsanto from the beginning. The publicity stunt by his wife about “organic gardening” was just another distraction to strengthen the hypnotic slumber of the masses. To ask Obama to stop Monsanto is the height of ignorance and wishful thinking. It won’t happen through “writing your congressman” either. In terms of Prop. 37 to label GMO foods, sure go ahead and vote for it. But the real issue is NOT to have GMO foods to begin with. People get so distracted fighting the symptoms that they never look at the cause. I do support food labeling, however, voting for Prop 37 and if it passes will just give the PTB (powers that be) an excuse to make GMO foods and justify it by being “honest” about it and labeling it. The fact is you cannot control GMO foods like that, because non-GMO foods and crops will get infected by it because it will spread to native vegetation through natural pollination. Nature does it regardless of what is GMO or not. In other words there will be GMO foods and no one actually knows they are GMO foods, even if they are labeled as “organic”.

– Obama’s support of the Zionist regime of Israel

Most people do not understand what Zionism is and how it influences world politics and especially US politics. Criticism of Israel is not anti-semitism or anti-jewish. There is a difference between Judaism and Zionism. No one gets to be president who doesn’t support Israel, a true terrorist state which keeps committing systematic ethnic cleansing in Palestine under the pre-text of “defense” because they claim to have an absurd “right by God” to illegally occupy a land. Obama’s “critique” of Israel here and there is simply empty political rhetoric with red herrings (as from any other given president), never addressing the root of the issue. Just in July Obama approved $70 million in extra military aid to Israel. Again, a sound understanding of Zionism and its history is imperative before even beginning to discuss this issue. The fact that Vice-President Joe Biden can openly admit that he’s a Zionist without anyone challenging him on that statement shows how far removed society is from reality and how little they have an understanding of Zionism.

These are just three points out of many more that are never truly addressed by his administration. But then again, they won’t be addressed, for Obama is merely a corporate puppet with strings attached and so is Romney. Presidents are being selected, not elected, and your vote doesn’t really matter much in that process. You’re running against a wall, trying to work with Obama appointees for the REAL issues will NEVER be addressed. It’s how the system is set-up ever since it’s been put in place, including the irrational identification with a country/nation, which is the basic trap to begin with. If you see yourself as an “American” then you are already starting off the false foundation and the house you build will be shaky and off balance, despite any social and personal “success” it may bring you within the matrix.

The reply I received after my lengthy post (there is more than I posted here) with many links and resources for him to check out was this:

“Well, I have many years of experience the system changing from within… And as a beacon of such evolutionary change, I am more than aware of all that you speak of I remain true to my self and my truth while involved in a culture of denial, deception, ignorance and pathology. Thank you.”

He didn’t address any of my questions nor read any of the information I provided, although HE ASKED for my take on it. Apparently the asking was not sincere. On the contrary, he claims to be a “beacon of evolutionary change” with “many years of experience the system changing from within” (without stating what that actually entailed), justifying it with the usual distorted new age bit of “my truth” and “true to myself” which merely creates more buffers and lies to the self. Self-deception and self-importance comes in the weirdest disguises. But people feed off that and so does the Matrix.

It usually says a lot about someone who makes certain claims, asks questions, but does not take the time to actually read what has been posted but instead responds with over-generalized statements that actually avoid the issue altogether without addressing the points and questions of what has been said. This interaction is a good example I have with most Obama supporters, especially as of late. They claim to be “aware” of all the issues I point out but STILL vote for him. It’s a contradiction. Never mind that none of them actually read the information I provide and go deeper with it. They either just skim through it or ignore it all together, putting their logic (conclusions) before grammar (research), which relates to what I keep posting:

When getting into “discussions”, I’ve found that most people:

  • don’t read the all links/information and resources provided or just skim over it.
  • do “selective reading”and have “selected hearing”.
  • do not address what has been ACTUALLY said. In other words, many people “talk” without “listening” first.
  • make quick assumptions and hasty conclusions.
  • twist words around and read into words something else than what they actually mean.
  • engage in ad hominem attacks, straw man/red herring arguments
  • are not aware of their own conditioning (for example national identification), tunnel vision and how it results in lack of critical thinking, lack of objectivity and logical fallacies.

However, as mentioned before, the issue is not really about Obama vs. Romney. It goes way deeper. If we want true change we need to get to the root of the issue, not trying to cut the branches for they will grow back. Like in Plato’s allegory of the cave, most people are distracted by the shadows on the wall, mesmerized and hypnotized, taking reality for illusion and illusion for reality. All kinds of defenses usually come up when I point out these things to others, from being called “judgmental” to “negative” and anything in between. It’s where psychology comes in and mind control, for the mind controlled victim (as is most of society) doesn’t know that he is mind controlled and hypnotized. You can present endless facts and information to such a person, but he/she will refuse or not able to SEE it, no matter how others point it out and ring the alarm clock:

“America, you have become a nation of enablers and apologists for tyranny and mass murder. You condemn the Nazi and gulag guards of times past even as you celebrate your own mercenaries and torturers, even as you explain away, if not outright cheer, the unspeakable crimes committed by your sons and daughters. You don’t care who you kill, as long as your soldiers are paid, and your munitions, bomb and tank factories are humming.

Safely ensconced in academic luna parks, your leading intellectuals lean slightly right or left, but never enough to rock this blazing gunboat, lest they sour the cocktail parties or, god forbid, have their tenure revoked. Mouths stuffed with antipasti, they’re expert at sidestepping Israel’s prolific crimes, 9/11, Bin Laden’s faux death or the parasitic Federal Reserve, and as another joke election nears, they’re all gung ho about candidates who back illegal wars and banking frauds, since each is supposedly the lesser of two evils.”

from USA: Voting for Death

“I’m awfully disappointed. In terms of civil liberties his record has been shockingly, alarmingly disappointing. He has carried on the policies initiated by Bush’s justice department of suppressing information under the guise of state secrets. I’ve been witnessing his personal appeal to pass the National Defence Authorisation Act, an unspeakable legislation that would give him the power to detain any US citizen indefinitely without charge or trial. He’s covered up efforts to investigate torture. And Guantánamo still has almost 170 men in it who have never been charged or tried, and there’s no hope of getting them out anytime soon.”

from Naomi Wolf on Obama: ‘His record on civil liberties is shocking’

“No matter who “wins”, humanity loses. Every four years, the deck chairs of the political Titanic that is the American empire get rearranged in the choreographed spectacle of another presidential “election”. The 2012 charade is particularly disgusting; the lies more blatant and shrill, as the world continues to burn.

It is critical to focus on the cold, ugly reality facing the world with either prospective White House occupant.

On one side, the Obama administration, and the traditional brand of neoliberal imperialism and international consensus, and false domestic populism. On the other side with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, militant right-wing extremism, an apocalyptic war agenda and the politics of sadism at home.

The interests of the elite (Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberger, etc.) is dutifully served with either Obama or Romney in the White House. The question for the elite is purely over style and execution.

Obama has been a servile facilitator and protector of the political establishment; an insidious capitulator and “consensus man”. For Wall Street’s billionaires, the Pentagon’s warmongers, and Washington’s most shamelessly corrupt, there has been no greater gift than Obama and his presidency. But with Romney and Ryan, the agenda simply speeds up and destroys faster, more violently, with true theocratic maniacal fervor.

The final choice will not be made by voters (who will be disenfranchised again, via electronic vote fraud and other manipulations), but by the criminal elements who seize final control of the apparatus over the final month of the “contest”.

The “children” are being allowed to fight it out amongst themselves. The side with ultimate command of the corporate media propaganda, the most effective back door deals, and the most effective dirty tricks and election night shenanigans, will prevail, the pre-determined result promptly encrypted into the software of controlled Diebold voting machines.

from The 2012 U.S. Presidential “Non-election”: Which brand of “fascism” this time?

Seeking truth in the world implies to seek truth within. In other words, one needs to separate truth from lies within and without. Most people lie to themselves and do not know they do so. They dream to be awake, but are sound asleep, and so the blind lead the blind and follow lies and “leaders” like Obama or Romney eventually off the cliff.

“A man must first of all understand certain things. He has thousands of false ideas and false conceptions, chiefly about himself, and he must get rid of some of them before beginning to acquire anything new. Otherwise the new will be built on a wrong foundation and the result will be worse than before. To speak the truth is the most difficult thing in the world; one must study a great deal and for a long time in order to speak the truth. The wish alone is not enough. To speak the truth one must know what the truth is and what a lie is, and first of all in oneself. And this nobody wants to know.”

–  G.I. Gurdjieff

Looking deeper into all the topics I mentioned, unbiased, confronting the lies in the world, the lies Obama tells and most importantly the lies people tell themselves with all the buffers, wishful thinking and justifications, WILL open up a can of worms many people are not willing or even able to follow through with.

Why?

Because it WILL conflict with virtually everything they believe in. It will conflict with their career, their associations and friends, their status, public image, etc. They WILL get attacked and ridiculed for speaking the truth about these topics, for no one really wants to hear the truth. They want to hear “comforting” and “inspiring” words that agree with their already made-up beliefs (based on lies) and anyone who dares to question these deep-rooted beliefs and sacred cows is being ridiculed and/or attacked for reasons that have nothing to do with the facts at hand. Then there is self-importance, political correctness and people’s inherent NEED to be recognized and praised for what they do or say, so truth usually takes a backseat for ambition, status and narcissistic admiration.

It’s cognitive dissonance:

“The theory of Cognitive Dissonance is one of the more proven theories showing a truly human phenomenon. At it’s simplest it can be explained as such: The brain does not like contradictory information which causes dissonance and adjusts competing facts to relieve dissonance so as to strive for a singular world view. This phenomenon works alongside a complimentary phenomenon known as the confirmation bias. The confirmation bias is the tendency to remember information which confirms your beliefs and ignore information which contradicts your beliefs…. There are a few commonly held beliefs due to a bias of the self that almost everyone has. They believe they are smart (even if they got bad grades and have low IQ scores). They believe they are good and moral. They believe they rarely make mistakes. They believe they are important. Some may not hold these due to self esteem issues but regardless of the evidence most will hold these near and dear to their heart.”

– Benjamin Buehne

As I wrote in 2012 – Collective Awakening or End of the World? , where I summarize 3 important topics that need to be confronted and understood before we can have any true change or shift in consciousness:

“The path of seeking truth within and without is not an easy one. It goes literally against everything we’ve been told and taught by society and governments. The indoctrination of lies, the conditioning and programming is deep and far reaching. It has been going on for millennia. It takes tremendous effort to wake up from the hypnotic slumber, where most people dream to be awake. At this Time of Transition, as more and more knowledge is coming to the surface, there is the potential to create a new earth. However, this is also the age of deception for there are forces at work that do not want this to happen. They do their best to vector us away from truth and the most effective way to swallow a lie is to sandwich it between some truth with some emotional hooks. As mentioned many times before, lies are mixed with truth, hence discernment is essential. We need to engage our higher emotional center connecting us to divine intuition and also activate our higher intellect, engaging in sincere, open minded critical thinking, fusing the heart and the mind, mysticism and science.”

It’s fear of the unknown that drives people to support lies and psychopathic presidential candidates who don’t know anything else BUT to lie disguised behind their “mask of sanity“. It gives them some sort of comfort and they don’t even see that there is another way possible altogether. Again, Plato’s allegory of the cave comes to mind. It is fear and desperation that drives people to vote for the “lesser evil” without actually understanding what “evil” is to begin with. You can see that in remarks like “Anyone but Romney” or “Romney must not win!“. They are afraid to realize that they have no choice by participating in the system and so they rationalize and justify their decision by any means possible which keeps them away from “Disillusionment”. Yet disillusionment is necessary and the first step before any true change can happen.

I realize now more and more that most people actually do NOT want change, or to state it better, they want change as long as it doesn’t interfere with their lives, their beliefs, their world view. They are not willing to give themselves to seek truth sincerely but focus on changing the tapestry of the prison (they are not even aware of) instead of breaking out of it. They prefer comforting lies over harsh truths, not facing reality as it is. They don’t want to give up their so-called authority, their status, and image. They are terrified (unconsciously), realizing that their whole life may be based on lies and so self-calming takes precedence over truth. It’s an unconscious self-defense mechanism of the ego or false self and they can’t see themselves clearly.

For the most part it’s not about the external information that people reject, but they can’t “receive” it to begin with because of cognitive dissonance, not questioning their own “thinking”. This also ties into this whole “resonating” idea in the New Age. I lost count how many people have rejected factual knowledge in “discussions” (not really a discussion) because it didn’t “resonate” with them or they “resonate” with stuff that is “not even wrong”, so to speak, but just dreamy castles in the air that confirm their inner landscape based on lies to the self.

However, this relates not only to “New Agers” but literally EVERYONE in varying degrees since we all are subjected to lies and social programming since birth. I’ve fallen into this trap myself, especially in the early days, where I thought I “know” and have “figured it out”, not being very discerning about certain information and not seeing myself clearly. I WANTED certain things to be true and that emotional charge is what I mistook for “resonating”. The same like many people WANT Obama to be the “savior” and “good guy” while ignoring all the facts that speak against that. Again, it’s the necessity of disillusionment before we can actually “do” as it has been so well written about in this article.

I’ve been reading “Strangers to Ourselves – Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious” lately, which is a real eye-opener. It shows how mirroring and networking is crucial in “the work” to evolve, wake up and truly get to know ourselves and the world, facing the lies we tell ourselves as we all have our blind spots. I think the hardest realization for anyone is to face to that we cannot truly trust our own thinking and alone we can do nothing.

“Why it is that people often do not know themselves very well (e.g., their own characters, why they feel the way they do, or even the feelings themselves)? And how can they increase their self-knowledge? There are undoubtedly many reasons for a lack of self-insight; people may be blinded by their hubris (a favorite Greek and Shakespearean theme), confused, or simply never take the time to examine their own lives and psyche very carefully. The reason…is that much of what we want to know about ourselves resides outside of conscious awareness….

People develop habitual ”tendencies of thought” that are nonconscious and that these thought patterns can lead to “unconscious prejudices which we thus form, [that] are often stronger than the conscious; and they are the more dangerous, because we cannot knowingly guard against them.“…

It can thus be fruitless to try to examine the adaptive unconscious by looking inward. It is often better to deduce the nature of our hidden minds by looking outward at our behavior and how others react to us, and coming up with a good narrative….

In fact there is evidence that it can be counterproductive to look inward too much. We will see evidence that introspection about feelings can cause people to make unwise decisions and to become more confused about how they feel. To be clear, I am not disparaging all kinds of introspection. Socrates was only partly wrong that the “unexamined life is not worth living.” The key is the kind of self-examination people perform, and the extent to which people attempt to know themselves solely by looking inward, versus looking outward at their own behavior and how others react to them….

A disadvantage of a system that processes information quickly and efficiently is that it is slow to respond to new, contradictory information. In fact we often unconsciously bend new information to fit our preconceptions, making it next to impossible to realize that our preconceptions are wrong….

It is fair to say that the tendency for the adaptive unconscious to jump to conclusions, and to fail to change its mind in the face of contrary evidence, is responsible for some of society’s most troubling problems….

The adaptive unconscious is an older system designed to scan the environment quickly and detect patterns, especially ones that might pose a danger to the organism. It learns patterns easily but does not unlearn them very well; it is a fairly rigid, inflexible inference maker. It develops early and continues to guide behavior into adulthood….

The human mind is an incredible achievement, perhaps the most amazing in the history of the Earth. This does not mean, however, that it is an optimal or perfectly designed system. Our conscious knowledge of ourselves can be quite limited, to our peril….”

from “Strangers to Ourselves – Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious” by by Timothy D. Wilson

The book basically describes in modern cognitive science language exactly what G. I. Gurdjieff was talking about in terms of humans being machines. It is also somewhat frightening to realize how mechanical we really are, how we do, indeed, lie to ourselves all or most of the time, and that the only way we have of knowing what is going on inside ourselves is by inference and feedback/mirroring from a network engaged in the work to sincerely seek truth within and without. That’s the real terror of the situation: that you are nothing BUT a machine that thinks in programmed loops and lies to your conscious mind which then lives and breathes lies itself.

“People are machines. Machines have to be blind and unconscious, they cannot be otherwise, and all their actions have to correspond to their nature. Everything happens. No one does anything. ‘Progress’ and ‘civilization,’ in the real meaning of these words, can appear only as the result of conscious efforts. They cannot appear as the result of unconscious mechanical actions. And what conscious effort can there be in machines? And if one machine is unconscious, then a hundred machines are unconscious, and so are a thousand machines, or a hundred thousand, or a million. And the unconscious activity of a million machines must necessarily result in destruction and extermination. It is precisely in unconscious involuntary manifestations that all evil lies. You do not yet understand and cannot imagine all the results of this evil. But the time will come when you will understand.

The evolution of man can be taken as the development in him of those powers and possibilities which never develop by themselves, that is, mechanically. Only this kind of development, only this kind of growth, marks the real evolution of man. In speaking of evolution it is necessary to understand from the outset that no mechanical evolution is possible. The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness. And ‘consciousness’ cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and ‘will’ cannot evolve involuntarily. The evolution, of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and ‘doing’ cannot be the result of things which ‘happen.’

People do not know what man is. They have to do with a very complex machine, far more complex than a railway engine, a motorcar, or an aeroplane—but they know nothing, or almost nothing, about the construction, working, or possibilities of this machine; they do not even understand its simplest functions, because they do not know the purpose of these functions.

[…]“You often think in a very naive way,” [Gurdjieff] said. “You already think you can do. To get rid of this conviction is more difficult than anything else for a man. You do not understand all the complexity of your organization and you do not realize that every effort, in addition to the results desired, even if it gives these, gives thousands of unexpected and often undesirable results, and the chief thing that you forget is that you are not beginning from the beginning with a nice clean, new machine. There stand behind you many years of a wrong and stupid life, of indulgence in every kind of weakness, of shutting your eyes to your own errors, of striving to avoid all unpleasant truths, of constant lying to yourselves, of self-justification, of blaming others, and so on, and so on. All this cannot help affecting the machine. The machine is dirty, in places it is rusty, and in some places artificial appliances have been formed, the necessity for which has been created by its own wrong way of working. These artificial appliances will now interfere very much with all your good intentions. They are called ‘buffers.‘…

‘Buffers’ are created slowly and gradually. Very many ‘buffers’ are created artificially through ‘education.’ Others are created under the hypnotic influence of all surrounding life. A man is surrounded by people who live, speak, think, and feel by means of ‘buffers.’ Imitating them in their opinions, actions, and words, a man involuntarily creates similar ‘buffers’ in himself. ‘Buffers’ make a man’s life more easy. It is very hard to live without ‘buffers.’ But they keep man from the possibility of inner development because ‘buffers’ are made to lessen shocks that can lead a man out of the state in which he lives, that is, waken him. ‘Buffers’ will lull a man to sleep, give him the agreeable and peaceful sensation that all will be well, that no contradictions exist and that he can sleep in peace. ‘Buffers’ are appliances by means of which a man can always be in the right. ‘Buffers’ help a man not to feel his conscience.

from “In Search of the Miraculous” by P.D. Ouspensky

If all the researchers out there (everyone in their respective field) and everyone who wants to truly be a “beacon of evolutionary change” would lay aside their personal ambitions based on self-importance or career goals and come together to seek TRUTH together sincerely without agendas, but with the sole intent to find out truth, no matter what it is, understanding that this process also includes sincere self-work, mirroring, giving each other feedback (without falling into the trap of the “make nice” program which relates to “political correctness), we’d make a true shift in consciousness. But for now that is just wishful thinking.

A mirror generally is perceived as shocking or socially disagreeable. This comes from the fact that if the mirror is any good, it will conflict with the subjective filters of perception most people maintain concerning themselves. In other words, people’s self image is more or less based on lies to self and in the degree the mirror reaches its intended truthfulness, it will challenge these lies. It would entail for many people to admit to themselves that they are/have been wrong about some things. However, this realization will conflict with their career, image and book sales, opening a can of worms, which may lose them some of their “fans”, friends, status and money.

There is this contrived “niceness” in today’s “conscious movements”, where people don’t want to say anything “negative”, in their subjective understanding of it of course. In general, some folks hide behind a “social etiquette” and mask without wanting to say anything “bad” or touching on any “taboo subjects”. They speak around issues in order to be spiritually or politically “correct” so as to “not step on anyone’s toes”. It shows in popular over-generalized sayings like “let’s be conscious of what we say, and if we don’t have anything nice to say, it’s better to be silent” or “don’t be judgmental!” or “we need to get out of the us vs. them thinking“. That is a good example of the distortion of “being conscious/aware” and relates to the fact why more “spiritual-minded” people do not look at the world more objectively, speaking out and standing up against the lies and psychopathic ways of our culture. They claim that there is no objectivity and truth is relative, which is simply not true (no pun intended).

We can see now, looking into cognitive science and how it mirrors ancient esoteric teachings as transmitted by Gurdjieff and others, that claiming to “follow one’s truth” and “being true to oneself“, as many people justify their actions and decisions with, can be buffers and lies to the self, justifying the programming and conditioning they are not even aware of, dreaming to be awake, but being sound asleep. It’s how the over-generalized and watered-down New Age teachings these days actually work in favor of the PTB (powers that be) and it seems very likely that they have manipulated and distorted TRUE spiritual teachings for that very purpose for thousands of years. Be it religion or the New Age. Same thing, different packaging, an opiate for the masses to keep them hypnotized and asleep; sheep dreaming to be men or gods.

For that reason most of the COINTELPRO “agents” are not consciously aware that they are spreading disinformation, but become “useful idiots” and tools for the matrix, despite their well-meaning intent.

“When a person has lied for a long time, the time comes when he can no longer distinguish between what is false and what is true. People convince themselves of their own lies, becoming victims of their own inventions as they begin to direct their lives by standards of behavior, ideas, feelings, or instincts which do not correspond to their inner reality.

What is truly serious in this matter is that the individual loses all points of reference regarding what comprises truth, and what comprises lies. He becomes used to considering as true only that which is convenient for his personal interests; everything that is in opposition to his self-esteem or in conflict with already established prejudices, he considers false.

A person lies in order to avoid difficult problems, to evade responsibility, or to avoid damage to his self-esteem. So the individual constantly lies to himself and to others, and becomes entangled in an illusory world born out of his personal fantasy. He forms concepts, ideas, judgments, aversions, and attachments that have no relation to actual events, but are only the reflection of a life full of lies and listening to lies.

One of the most powerful reasons for lying is to create a good image of oneself, and to prevent others from seeing us as we really are beneath the mask of appearances. Each mask is a lie, and there are thousands in each individual’s collection of disguises. It is necessary to be conscious of this phenomenon of lying, and to realize its magnitude and frequency, as well as the enormous damage it causes.

People are always infused with all kinds of fantastic ideas about themselves, the world, people, love, idealism, society, etc. Led by his eagerness to evade a disagreeable reality, man gives free rein to his imagination and is inclined to believe the first agreeable lie he encounters along the way. The individual projects his personal illusions onto a cold and immutable reality, and thus deceiving himself, he endeavors to contemplate reality through rose-colored glasses.

“Disillusion” is a painful process and can be prolonged, depending on how much time the individual takes to realize he is living artificially and that this condition is a product of his internal dreams. Great courage is required to face reality and to destroy the mirage of a pleasant dream.

from “The Stellar Man” by John Baines


There is another issue that come with voting in a corrupted system and believing in lies. On a deeper level (metaphysically speaking), by voting and by identifying yourself with a party (left or right) you actually give validity to the corrupt system, two-party set-up, and essentially your “permission” to keep it in place. In a sense you actually give up your free will by believing in lies (taking the false for the true and the true for the false) and supporting them with your vote. It’s how the “matrix” works and keeps itself in place: By the consensus of the people believing in it and supporting it through their actions and beliefs.

No matter how good a lie sounds, how good it feels or what “positive” effect you may think it has (wishful thinking), there are metaphysical repercussions that affect everyone and the whole world “negatively” and actually feed entropy, essentially keeping the false system and control in place by giving it “energy”, regardless if the people who support/believe lies (unknowingly or not) are very loving, positive and mean well. In a sense, by voting and buying into the illusion of “free choice” people tend to do more “harm” than any “good”. The exact opposite of what we’re being told (“Rock the Vote!”) and have been conditioned to believe.

Obviously it’s not about just not voting and doing nothing. It’s about gaining knowledge, educating ourselves, and seeing the fraud and the lies for what they are. Only then will we know what to DO and, most importantly, what NOT to do. The more people engage in seeking Truth and working together in that regard, the better the chance that reality (as a whole) will change for the “better”, because we DO create our own reality. However, it’s not as simple as portrayed in the many distorted New Age “You Create Your Own Reality” bits. This is a topic on its own, however, this article touches upon that subject in more depth: Order Out of Chaos.

The only question that remains to anyone who wants to vote for the “lesser evil” (or 3rd party candidates, who never have a chance, which is also a distraction, giving the illusion of choice) is this: If you sincerely read/study what is written here including all the linked articles and references, are you willing or even able to admit to yourself that you have been/are believing in lies which cloud your judgment and perception? It may go contrary to everything you believed in and your life is based on. It’s not an easy process and it never is/was for anyone, who is sincerely seeking truth. But that is the work to be done and our only hope before we can “do” and present “solutions” that will help us to make “The Shift” before mother nature presses the reset button.  It has happened before and it is happening now, while the masses are distracted by the political circus side show of two clowns who argue about who’s the “nicer” psychopath. Having good intentions is not enough. In fact, in can do more harm than any good for the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Most “evil” is done and supported by well-meaning folks with good intentions who are not aware of their conditioning and who lack objective knowledge of our world.

“Half the harm that is done in this world
 is due to people who want to feel important. 
They don’t mean to do harm. ­ 
But the harm does not interest them.
 Or they do not see it, or they justify it. 
Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle 
to think well of themselves.”

– T. S. Eliot

National Pride and The Bogeyman

“Patriotism is a pernicious, psychopathic form of idiocy.”
– George Bernard Shaw

The public reaction to the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden has revealed once again the darker side of America, reminiscent of the response to 9/11 in 2001. Flags everywhere and national pride being displayed with an undeniable disturbing undertone glorifying murder and revenge. This video reminds me of a time in the past in Europe, where people were also blinded in an emotional high of nationalism.

Despite the fact that the official story of the killing of the “biggest enemy of the free world” has just as many holes and questionable reports as the official story of 9/11 and that all the evidence leads to the high probability that Bin Laden has been dead for years, not many people seem to see anything wrong with glorifying the death of another human being. Millions of innocent people have died in the almost 10 year-long war on terror. Where are the voices for those voiceless, the ones that have suffered and died because of lies and American imperialism under the disguise of bringing “freedom” and “democracy”?

The hero and man who will go into history as the president who hunted and killed Osama bin Laden, Barack Obama, decided not to show the picture of Bin Laden’s corpse in respect to the sensibilities of the American people since the pictures are apparently too gruesome, if they exist to begin with.

I think (and it’s certainly not the most popular view), we need to see more of these images, regardless how graphic they are. Not for the sake of voyeurism, but to SEE what is really happening in the world, what this “great country” is doing to the people in other parts of the world in the name of “freedom” and the “war on terror”. Let us see the real images of millions of children and women killed, raped and mutilated in Iraq and Afghanistan. Let us see the pictures of the genocide happening in Palestine under the psychopathic apartheid state of Israel WITHOUT censor. Why not? There is death and blood on TV, video games and so-called entertainment. People pay for movies to see action, shooting, killing, gore and blood, but they get offended when they see it in real life and Obama is protecting us from a picture of an alleged killed “terrorist” because it’s too much? What hypocrisy!

We need to see more of reality, more of what is really going on without getting distracted by filtered and fake news. It’s been almost ten years now and the 9/11 lie is still in place, a lie that has cost millions of innocent lives and the loss of freedom worldwide. How can that be? How quick would all the wars and terror end if people would truly SEE and REALIZE the suffering!

This is life. And things will only get worse if we don’t start taking an honest look at the world as it is and ourselves as we are. With this Bin Laden scam we may have an opportunity to do the right thing. Maybe the PTB (Powers That Be) shot themselves in the foot with their conflicting stories, but if we keep silent they just keep going, bringing more misery to the world as the masses cheer them on. So, what are we really going to do about it? It’s really up to each one of us and all of us together for these are precious times.

The truth won’t be seen or realized as long as we try to stay safe, in our comfort zone and just playing “nice” in order not to disturb our sensibilities, which ultimately only leads to complacency and conformity.

It all comes down to 9/11 again and the fact that the official story doesn’t hold up at all, nor is Bin Laden the mastermind behind it. Osama bin Laden is just another chapter of “enemy creation” in the history of false flag attacks. You need a bogeyman to distract the masses and the announcement of his “capturing” and “killing” seems to be essentially a publicity stunt to kick off Obama’s election campaign and is merely a distraction from other issues affecting our world. It is a test for critical thinking beyond the herd mind of blind acceptance. On the other hand, it’s also not surprising how many people believe it and cheer “USA!” in blind nationalistic fashion. Hook, line and sinker. Very predictable. Like Plato’s allegory of the cave, people get distracted by the shadows on the wall as history keeps repeating itself.

“Naturally the common people don’t want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

– Herman Goering

It seems like a long way to go in terms of “shift in consciousness” and it feels like the collective has taken a step back when looking at the public reaction to Bin Laden’s death. But there is always opportunity to wake up from the slumber and maybe this incident will not work for the PTB and may backfire on them, revealing the man behind the curtain. But as I said before, that depends on each one of us and if we make our voices heard.

4th of July seems to be a big deal here in the country of the brave. People pack out their stars and stripes, organize parties and barbecues, ignite fireworks, flags are being raised left and right. So what are people celebrating on the 4th of July? What are Americans so proud of? The general public thinks it is the Independence from England and the birth date of the “free country” called USA. Is that really so?
 Is the USA really independent and are its citizens free or is it merely a smokescreen for something else, a distraction to make the public believe and act in a certain way? And even if this would be the truth (the “Independence”), why would it be a reason to celebrate?
 Can we look at some little forgotten facts? This country was basically founded by privileged white men who stole the land, committing genocide on millions of Native Americans and most of them to this day live in reservations, forgotten, their culture raped, while the citizens watch fireworks in the horizon in celebration of the “birth” of this country? 
Something seems very wrong with this picture.  But it’s not only the past, America’s empire conquests in the name of corporate capitalism, profit and ultimately greed has cost millions of deaths and suffering all over the globe. No other country in the world has started more wars than the USA.

So how does the American public usually react to that on the 4th of July? By outrage, protest and standing up for truth and justice? Yes, some people with conscience and concern do stand up and say “no more!”, but unfortunately they are usually over-shadowed by the majority of brainwashed Americans who just do each year what they always do, waking up with a hang-over the next day after partying a bit too much in celebration of this country. “God Bless America!”. And we saw a taste of this blind nationalistic fever in the recent celebration over Bin Laden’s death. When will people come to their senses and stop cheering and waving their flags?

All the romantic stories they tell people and kids about this “great” country in school, media and from”official” sources are mostly fiction and distorted facts in order to make people complacent and ignorant to what really happened and is actually going on.

War means business. That’s why Roosevelt provoked Pearl Harbor to have an excuse to go to war. Same with the Inside job of 9/11, the CIA creation of Al Qaeda and the phony war on terror, America’s support for Israel and its genocide on the Palestinian people and so on. No soldier in this country is actually fighting for freedom or for the country, but for interests of a small psychopathic elite that sells the lie of patriotism and “honor”. The troops are being duped and die for lies, not for protecting or defending a “country”, nor for bringing “freedom” to another country.

“Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people’s brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead.”

– Arundhati Roy

But this is done on purpose, and it is part of the” dumbing down” of America, the necessary social control to keep the sheep in the herd, satisfied with material comfort, so no one asks uncomfortable questions.

“They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests… . Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you.”

– George Carlin

And so the “dumbing down” continues until we make an effort to seek truth and act upon it. Sadly, many nice and honest people swallow the lies and can’t see their own conditioning. The whole Obama hype is a good example for that. Many well-meaning folks have put their hope into this guy and believed all the slogans of “change” and “unity” he uttered like a hypnotist, without really clearly seeing behind the smokescreen of this two-party system.

That’s how the political system works, twisting reality in such a way to make people believe they have choice and freedom within the system, when in fact they have none. The best way to control a people is to make them believe they are free, while controlling their choices, behavior, desires, opinions and options through conditioning of official culture, the control of education, media, religion, science, history and economy. Control through force in the past became Mind Control as the people police each other and are not aware of the prison they’re in.

“The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control by martial law. It is control by the psychological manipulation of consciousness, through which reality is defined so that those who exist within it do not even realize that they are in prison. They do not even realize that there is something outside of where they exist.”

– from ‘Bringers of the Dawn’, Barbara Marciniak

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Jidduh Krishnamurti said it well, over forty years ago, in regards to politicians and belief systems. Paraphrased from a talk he gave:

“It is like you are in a prison cell and all you do is re-arrange the furniture, maybe put up a new tapestry, but essentially you are still in prison, though for the moment it may seem new and fresh, but you are still behind walls. How about breaking out of the prison and seeing what’s up on the mountain, behind that forest, down that lake…….?”

People just keep re-decorating their prison cell based on illusory security their government promises them. But let’s not get caught up in a political debate. The roots of the problem are deeper than choosing a puppet on election day. We all know that, but as George Carlin said:

“If honesty were suddenly be introduced into American Life, the whole system would collapse! No one would know what to do. Honesty would screw this country up.”

Very true words. If people would realize that they have been living a lie for the majority of their lives, they wouldn’t know what to do. They rather deny it than face it. It’s like a psychological unconscious defense mechanisms to avoid truth, regardless of the facts presented.

Let’s go deeper than just focusing on America, and look into the whole notion of belief in a country, nation and the question of patriotism, no matter what country you belong to or “identify” yourself with. Nothing changes when we just keep cutting the branches of the tree, for they will grow back. We need to tackle the root of the issue and the root is IDENTIFICATION and BELIEF.

Sometimes I see a bumper sticker saying: “Peace is Patriotic”. I have to ask myself, who came up with that nonsense? Peace is not patriotic. Patriotism is a lie sold to the people, which we need to let go of if we really want to evolve to a better world. Countries don’t matter anymore, nor do flags. It’s all about global corporate interest under the guidance of psychopaths in power. The leaders know that, they just play the part they need to play to keep the herd in place.

Any identification with a nation, flag or country fuels separation and hence conflict. All borders are man-made, based on outdated values and shortsighted ideologies that we as awake and aware people of this day and age need to let go of. We’re not Americans, Germans, Jews, Arabs or Chinese, we are human beings, are we not? You think this is impossible? It’s only impossible as along as you and I feed the illusion. Of course I’m not talking about a nation-less world under a totalitarian one world government, but a world based on higher values beyond control and fear. I know that this is a very idealist and Utopian idea when looking at the world objectively and I have my doubts if we ever see the return of a Golden Age. At this point it seems it has to get far worse before people wake up and anything close to a Golden Age is going to manifest. And maybe not all are even going to wake up for other reasons humanity is not aware of.

Especially in this day and age, when we realize more and more how our beliefs and intentions affect the outside world, we need to be careful who and what we feed. As long as we believe in lies or follow the lies told to us through politicians, media, religion and government controlled education, we will create more and more conflict and misery, no matter what we wishfully think to be, visualize or otherwise, regardless of our well-meaning intentions.

Before we can “change” anything we need to see clearly the world not as we like it to be, but as it is, without rose-colored glasses on and that entails questioning our long-held beliefs. The question of national Identification, the absurdity or patriotism and worship of a flag is becoming more and more absurd.  No one, no leader, no government, no army, no guru,  is going to change the world unless we fundamentally change ourselves and act upon it. The emphasis is on FUNDAMENTALLY, not just avoidance and trying to be politically correct or retreating to some very questionable New Age “Teachings” to create the “reality” we desire in our subjective tunnel vision. This goes beyond re-decorating the prison cell (a.k.a. voting) or just focusing on ourselves without looking at what is happening in the world and the crimes committed in this country by its own government. There is too much at stake in this day and age and I’m not sure if people actually realize the great danger we are in.

I suggest looking at this whole Bin Laden frenzy in a different light, and see how we’re being manipulated through nationalistic and patriotic identification, so we can break down the walls of this prison we’ve put ourselves in.

“The nationalist is a curse because through his very nationalistic, patriotic spirit, he is creating a wall of isolation. He is so identified with his country that he builds a wall against another. What happens when you build a wall against something? That something is constantly beating against your wall. When you resist something, the very resistance indicates that you are in conflict with the other. So nationalism, which is a process of isolation, which is the outcome of the search for power, cannot bring about peace in the world. The man who is a nationalist and talks of brotherhood is telling a lie; he is living in a state of contradiction.
[…]
What causes war religious, political or economic? Obviously belief, either in nationalism, in an ideology, or in a particular dogma. If we had no belief but goodwill, love and consideration between us, then there would be no wars. But we are fed on beliefs, ideas and dogmas and therefore we breed discontent. The present crisis is of an exceptional nature and we as human beings must either pursue the path of constant conflict and continuous wars, which are the result of our everyday action, or else see the causes of war and turn our back upon them. Obviously what causes war is the desire for power, position, prestige, money; also the disease called nationalism, worship of a flag; and the disease of organized religion, the worship of dogma. All these are the causes of war; if you as an individual belong to any of the organized religions, if you are greedy for power, if you are envious, nationalistic, you are bound to produce a society, which will result in destruction. So again it depends upon you and not on the leaders; not on so-called statesman and all the rest of them.”
– J. Krishnamurti

The Positivity of Objectivity and the Time of Transition

Every once in a while I get a message  or comment on facebook from someone asking me why I have such a “negative” view of the world, referring to some of the posts and articles I put up on my wall. He or she then goes on telling me that I should “lighten” up, be more “positive”, focus on “love” and the good things life has to offer, because we create what we “see”.  I usually respond back by asking, what is so negative about posting information that exposes the lies we’re being fed and told, be it about 9/11, Zionism, the genocide in Gaza, or the fact that many people in places of high power (political, corporate, religious or even in science and media) are psychopaths with no conscience who couldn’t care less about your or the earth’s well-being?

This is not being negative, but simply showing the situation as it is. Anyone who is willing to do a bit of reading and research without being attached to a conditioned world view can see this. Moreover, these topics and how they affect us and the world at large won’t go away by ignoring them or by focusing on more “pleasant” aspects of our reality. Actually by ignoring them, one is doing more harm to the world and feeding entropy as one is putting oneself in a subjective tunnel vision of wishful thinking instead of becoming more objectively aware and seeing the world as it IS, not as we like it or assume it to be.  As I wrote in another article: a “shift in consciousness” and “awakening” implies a higher state of awareness, which means to become more aware of it all, which implies again to see the world and oneself more objectively, without blinders on. This doesn’t happen by itself, but requires sincere effort and work to separate truth from lies, within and without.

“Conspiracy theory” or business as usual?

The truth about the topics mentioned above and others doesn’t fit into many people’s preferred world view and hence many of them deny it or judge it as being “negative” without having sincerely looked into it themselves. Some say that these are ridiculous claims and there is no proof but just “conspiracy theory” nonsense.

The other day I got into a discussion with someone about 9/11. Having had many such “discussions” before, I was very reluctant to get into it, especially on facebook and I should have listened to my intuition in retrospect. However, I gave it the benefit of a doubt and even posted a “disclaimer” based on my experiences from previous unproductive discussions with the hope that this time it would be different:

When getting into discussions about 9/11 or similar topics, I’ve found that most people:

  • don’t read the links/information provided.
  • do “selective reading”and have “selected hearing” and do not address what has been ACTUALLY said. In other words, many people “talk” without “listening” first.
  • make quick assumptions and hasty conclusions
  • twist words around and read into words something else than what they actually mean.
  • are not aware of their own conditioning, tunnel vision and how it results in lack of critical thinking, lack of objectivity and logical fallacies.

To make the story short, after many posts back and forth, all of the aforementioned issues happened. He didn’t read the articles and links I provided and if he did, he distorted the content, focusing on one point, but ignoring many others, resulting in assumptions and all kinds of ridiculous projections into what I was presenting. The same person then also claimed that he had reviewed “hundreds of hours” of material relating to 9/11 and has come to the conclusion that the official story must be true and there is not such thing as “conspiracy theories”! He suggested to me to focus more on positive change rather than looking into irrational conspiracy theories and blaming others which essentially just feeds the “us vs. them” paradigm.

Let alone the fact that the official version is a “conspiracy theory”, I question anyone’s ability of critical thinking if one claims to have reviewed “hundreds of hours” of material relating to 9/11 without seeing that there are maybe some issues with the official story. I think we’d also be well advised to question the oversimplified idea of “we’re all one” on this level of reality and consider the fact that not everyone is the same inside, hence, stop projecting qualities on political leaders (and others) they simply may not possess. There seems to be a huge denial or blind spot going on about the idea of “we”. This has nothing to do about “us vs. them”, but understanding how complex humanity actually is, what we choose to believe/wish for and what we avoid to look at and confront, within and without. However, the trigger word which actually prohibited a constructive discussion from the get-go was “conspiracy”, which he couldn’t look past.

“There is simply no doubt whatsoever that Mossad and elements within the US government carried out the 9/11 false flag attack. To even entertain the official version is to indict oneself of lunacy. Fact is that the official version of 9/11 is a “conspiracy theory”. Furthermore, it is the most ridiculous “theory” of them all.”

Ken O’Keefe

The word “conspiracy” is a touchy word with much weight and all kinds of false projected meaning and nonsense attached these days, just like the words “Freedom”, “Love” or “Truth”. People shy away from “conspiracies” or ridicule them right away, because it upsets their sensibility, world view and essentially exposes their fear of “not being in control” or that someone or something else may be. Most people reject something without understanding it and then distort it, which usually leads to generalizations and misconceptions. This article gives a good insight into the meaning of “conspiracy”:

“The first thing we want to think about is the fact that the word “conspiracy” evokes such a strong reaction in all of us:  nobody wants to be branded as a “conspiracy thinker”; it just isn’t “acceptable”; it’s “un-scientific” or it’s evidence of mental instability.  Right?  That’s what you are thinking, isn’t it?
[…]
Have you ever asked yourself why the word evokes such an instantaneous emotional reaction? Have you ever wondered why it stimulates such a strong “recoil”?  After all, it is only a word.  It only describes the idea of people in “high places” thinking about things and doing things that manipulate other people to produce benefits for themselves.  Certainly, everyone “knows” that this happens all the time.

Historian Richard M. Dolan studied at Alfred University and Oxford University before completing his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester, where he was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship.  Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.  As an expert, his opinion of “conspiracy theory” is that from a historical point of view, the only reality is that of conspiracy. Secrecy, wealth and independence add up to power.  …Deception is the key element of warfare, (the tool of the power elites), and when winning is all that matters, the conventional morality held by ordinary people becomes an impediment.  Secrecy stems from a pervasive and fundamental element of life in our world, that those who are at the top of the heap will always take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the status quo.
[…]
The very label ‘conspiracy’ serves as an automatic dismissal, as though no one ever acts in secret. Let us bring some perspective and common sense to this issue. The United States comprises large organizations – corporations, bureaucracies, ‘interest groups,’ and the like – which are conspiratorial by nature. That is, they are hierarchical, their important decisions are made in secret by a few key decision-makers, and they are not above lying about their activities. Such is the nature of organizational behavior. ‘Conspiracy,’ in this key sense, is a way of life around the globe.

Objectivity and Subjectivity

There also seems much confusion about what is supposedly “positive or negative”, “subjective or objective”. Some people claim that there is nothing like “objectivity” and all is subjective. Everything depends on how we look at things and quantum mechanics, so they say, shows us that there is no objective reality or truth, but there is only “my” or “your” truth and we create our reality by the thoughts we have, what we like to see and what we focus on. But is that really so?

I certainly do not claim to be an expert in quantum mechanics, however, it seems that the science of quantum mechanics has been oversimplified into sales-bits in the new age arena and movies like “The Secret”.  This doesn’t mean throwing out the baby with the bath water, as our perception seems to have an influence on reality, but maybe it’s not as simple as we have been made believe by many bestselling “self-help” gurus these days.

Here’s a little insight into quantum mechanics by theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss and published in ‘Scientific American’:

“No one intuitively understands quantum mechanics because all of our experience involves a world of classical phenomena where, for example, a baseball thrown from pitcher to catcher seems to take just one path, the one described by Newton’s laws of motion. Yet at a macroscopic level, the universe behaves quite differently. Electrons traveling from one place to another do not take any single path, but instead, as Feynman first demonstrated, take every possible path at the same time.
Moreover, although the underlying laws of quantum mechanics are completely deterministic – I need to repeat this, they are completely deterministic – the results of measurements can only be described probabilistically. This inherent uncertainty, enshrined most in the famous Heisenberg uncertainty principle, implies that various combinations of physical quantities can never be measured with absolute accuracy at the same time. Associated with that fact, but in no way equivalent to it, is the dilemma that when we measure a quantum system, we often change it in the process, so that the observer may not always be separated from that which is observed.”

He singles out some abusers of quantum mechanics:

Deepak Chopra: I have read numerous pieces by him on why quantum mechanics provides rationales for everything from the existence of God to the possibility of changing the past. Nothing I have ever read, however, suggests he has enough understanding of quantum mechanics to pass an undergraduate course I might teach on the subject.
The Secret: This best-selling book, which spawned a self-help industry, seems to be built in part on the claim that quantum physics implies a ‘law of attraction’ that suggests good thoughts will make good things happen. It doesn’t.”

And, finally:

For the record: Quantum mechanics does not deny the existence of objective reality. Nor does it imply that mere thoughts can change external events. Effects still require causes, so if you want to change the universe, you need to act on it.”

The question about the existence of an objective truth is a tricky one to answer. Philosophical views on truth and criteria for knowing it vary with the old dispute between rationalism and empiricism. However, beyond philosophical or scientific discussion, there usually seems one element that is barely questioned in more depth: the state of being/awareness of a person which relates to how much objective reality he/she can actually access.

In our current state of being and existence we cannot perceive objective reality fully, however we can work towards objectivity and expand our understanding of reality  and ourselves accordingly. That is the basis of esoteric work which relates to gaining Self-Knowledge in order to raise awareness and consciousness to a higher level of Being.

Subjectivity is the preference to rather consider one’s favorite beliefs than the external world. Such a tendency is generally backed by a strong emotional attachment to these beliefs. Wishful thinking, assumptions and opinions based on reactive behavior directly relate to it. Objectivity is the ability to see things “as they are”, not as we envision them to be, like them or want them to be. The ability to perceive objective reality depends upon one’s ability to clearly receive . To reach a higher state of objective awareness, one must first see themselves clearly and that entails to work through one’s lies, illusions, buffers and self-deceptions.

“The survival of the ego is established pretty early in life by our parental and societal programming as to what IS or is NOT possible; what we are “allowed” to believe in order to be accepted. We learn this first by learning what pleases our parents and then later we modify our belief based on what pleases our society – our peers – to believe.
[…]
One of the first things we might observe is that everyone has a different set of beliefs based upon their social and familial conditioning, and that these beliefs determine how much of the OBJECTIVE reality anyone is able to access.

Suffice it to say that, under ordinary conditions of reality, we almost never perceive reality as it truly IS. There are thousands of different little “hypnotic suggestions” that have taken hold of us from infancy on, that determine, in any given moment, what we believe or think or think we believe or believe we think.”

– Laura Knight-Jadczyk

It’s easy to over-philosophize the idea of objectivity vs. subjectivity  without considering some very practical applications. For example, regardless of what one believes to be “one’s truth” or what one is thinking about and visualizing, if you walk off a cliff, won’t gravity pull you down? Isn’t one plus one two, and not three? Is the world round or flat? Consider the usual experience of romantic relationships where we at times fall in love with our projected image of a person based on wishful thinking and then find out later, usually after the emotional chemical high is over, that the person is not who we thought he/she is. The reality check is sometimes not very pleasant as our illusions burst like a bubble and the avoidance to accept the other person as he/she is frequently results in all kinds of unnecessary conflicts and hostile divorces. Was it really “love” to begin with if we didn’t “see” the other person (and ourselves) clearly?

And in regards to global issues:  Is the official 9/11 story true or have we been lied to?  Was it a false flag attack? Are we losing our basic rights for our protection from the “terrorists” or is there a different reason? Is the corporate mainstream media under the control of Zionists which suppresses and distorts the real news? Is Obama telling the truth or is he lying? These question can be answered objectively if proper research is done. However, the truth may not necessarily agree with one’s preferred (subjective) beliefs, opinions or assumptions. So it is important not to fall into denial or avoidance when some of our core beliefs are being challenged, especially if one is emotionally attached to them and the ego tries to (unconsciously) defend the lies in order to be “right” as the truth may open up a can of worms one is not ready to handle.

Moreover, no matter how much one tries to close oneself off from the “outside world”, believing that nothing will affect them as long as one focuses on “positive” thoughts and what one “likes” to experience, the bigger issues of the world still have an effect on us all, precisely because we are all one and everything is connected. No man is an island and no one’s reality is isolated from the Whole.

“What makes the YCYOR (You Create Your Own Reality) evangelist fatuous is precisely the fact that all such “personal decreeing”, “positive thinking” and confident imagining takes place in an inevitable context. There are implications! There are repercussions! No one decrees in a personal or private, solipsistic vacuum. There is a variegated World of myriad “pulls” and “claims” coexisting along with the private desires and designs of the given ego-subject.

But “so what?” we hear the die-hard “reality-creator” claim “don’t we remain untouched by those ‘co-existents’ as long as we keep secure in the confidence of our own private deservedness, our own authoritative affirmations and specific commissions of positive thought-re-inforcement?”

No. Man does not live by “commission” alone. This is why you do not create your own reality, but merely generate reality-hypotheses or scenarios which are continuously reflected and tested against the Whole; and the Whole, being inseparable from the Potential of your own innate-global Being, is constituted by the explicit and implicit alike, by that which is produced through active or positive commission and that which results from the gaps, blind-spots and vacuums of interpretive omission. All the lines, potential and actual, exist within one’s being and are inevitably calculated into the total account! This is what it means when we say there’s a context in which all our desire-formulation and “decreeing” takes place.”

– Michael Topper, “Why You Don’t “Create Your Own Reality”

There is an objective truth outside the context of what our little “I” perceives. It seems a tendency in certain Conscious Movements to overgeneralize and distort spiritual “higher” truths and quantum physics with an oversimplification of: All Truth is relative! Hence unconsciously (or consciously) using that explanation as an excuse and justification for the atrocities in the world or for whatever one may want to believe in one’s own little subjective world, no matter how illusory, false and based on pure wishful thinking or emotional projections to the point of even declaring that it is all just about “my” or “your” truth and there is no objective truth.

Obviously we all have our own personal lessons to learn and talents to develop, which could be interpreted as one’s “personal truth”, however that doesn’t exclude oneself from the collective lessons we all “need” to look at if we want to evolve consciously as ONE. In that sense it is important to do this work together (striving towards objectivity) in a functioning network where everyone involved has the same intent and aim: Truth and Objectivity, no matter what it is, without preference. That way we can help each other to become aware of subjective blind spots to assist in our personal lessons and observe the world more accurately by collecting data through observations, feedback and sincere research, using logic and intuition alike (the intellect and the heart), which leads to actions that are in line with the creative principle of the universe. This is an ongoing process as one’s view and understanding will expand, evolve and our awareness and ability to SEE (objective reality) increases and we act accordingly. Essentially that is conscious evolution.

Simply acknowledging that we are all one, separation is illusion and seeing everything as “Light” while focusing on what one believes to be “positive” and at the same time ignoring what one perceives as “negative” does not result in change for the better. Conversely, by insisting on what one would like to see, as opposed to seeing as the world as it is, is coming into conflict with creation, which then results in entropy and MORE suffering on a global scale, not less. A deeper insight into this gives the Event Enhanced Quantum Theory developed by physicists Arkadiusz Jadczyk and Philip Blanchard:

“Our universe seems to be made up of matter/energy and of consciousness. Matter/energy by itself “prefers”, as it seems, a chaotic state. Matter/energy by itself doesn’t even have a concept of “creation” or “organization”. It is the consciousness that brings to life these concepts and by its interaction with matter pushes the universe towards chaos and decay or towards order and creation.

This phenomenon can be modeled mathematically and simulated on a computer using EEQT (Event Enhanced Quantum Theory). Whether EEQT faithfully models the interaction of consciousness with matter, we do not know; but chances are that it does because it seems to describe correctly physical phenomena better than just the orthodox quantum mechanics or its rival theories (Bohmian mechanics, GRW etc.)

What we learn from EEQT can be described in simple terms as follows:

Let us call our material universe “the system”. The system is characterized by a certain “state”. It is useful to represent the state of the system as a point on a disc. The central point of the disk, its origin, is the state of chaos. We could also describe it as “Infinite Potential.” The points on the boundary represents “pure states” of being, that is states with “pure, non-fuzzy, knowledge”. In between there are mixed states. The closer the state is to the boundary, the more pure, more ’organized’ it is.

Now, an external “observer”, a “consciousness unit”, has some idea – maybe accurate, maybe false or anywhere in between – about the “real state” of the system, and observes the system with this “belief” about the state. Observation, if prolonged, causes the state of the system to “jump”. In this sense, you DO “create your own reality”, but the devil, as always, is in the details.

The details are that the resulting state of the system under observation can be more pure, or more chaotic depending on the “direction” of the jump. The direction of the jump depends on how objective – how close to the reality of the actual state – the observation is.

According to EEQT if the expectations of the observer are close to the actual state of the system, the system jumps, more often than not, into more organized, less chaotic state. If, on the other hand, the expectation of the observer is close to the negation of the actual state (that is when the observer’s beliefs are not TRUE according to the ACTUAL state – the objective reality), then the state of the system, typically, will jump into a state that is more chaotic, less organized. Moreover, it will take, as a rule, much longer time to accomplish such a jump.

In other words, if the observer’s knowledge of the actual state is close to the truth, then the very act of observation and verification causes a jump quickly, and the resulting state is more organized; pure. If the observer’s knowledge of the actual state is false, then it takes usually a long time to cause a change in the state of the system, and the resulting state is more chaotic.

In short, everyone who “believes” in an attempt to “create reality” that is different from what IS, adds to the increase of chaos and entropy. If your beliefs are orthogonal to the truth, no matter how strongly you believe them, you are essentially coming into conflict with how the Universe views itself and I can assure you, you ain’t gonna win that contest. You are inviting destruction upon yourself and all who engage in this “staring down the universe” exercise with you.

On the other hand, if you are able to view the Universe as it views itself, objectively, without blinking, and with acceptance of the reality and appropriate responses to how things really are, you then become more “aligned” with the Creative energy of the universe and your very consciousness becomes a transducer of order energy, and your actions are consonant with what is. Your energy of observation, given unconditionally, matched by the appropriate actions, can bring order to chaos, can create out of infinite potential.

Since Humanity – as a whole – is an “organ for transducing energies onto our planet”, the condition of humanity – as a whole – is reflected by the planet. The suffering of humanity, the lies that humans believe, all have a profound effect on the planet.

VERY IMPORTANT: it is not whether or not one “believes” in good things or bad things that makes good things or bad things happen. It is the factual observation of reality and whether or not it leads to a true assessment or lies.

The effort to view the universe AS IT VIEWS ITSELF with love and acceptance even in the face of what might be termed “horror” can actually lead to amelioration of that horror. To view the universe and to deny the truth and to insist that one can believe whatever one wants to believe and thereby make it so, is to deny reality and contributes to the chaos, the destruction, the suffering.

And so, what is the solution? The TRUTH – as close to it as we can objectively get – MUST be propagated as widely and as soon as possible. That is the only thing that will “save the planet”. Because it is in the creative centers of humanity… that the fate of the earth lies.
[…]
…how do we learn to see the universe objectively, as it sees itself? Another way of putting it is: how do we overcome our own subjectivity? The answer is by mastering the impermanent parts of our personality and bringing them under control of the part of us that is permanent, that part of us that has a link with the Creative force. And in this struggle, we discover that not only do we bind with truth spiritually, but this process also induces a change in our brain chemistry, which can literally lead to a physical transmutation.”

– from  “The Secret History of the World” by Laura Knight-Jadcyk

Love and Light

Some people seem to mistake objectivity for negativity and wishful thinking for positivity. Most of what people see as negative or positive are their subjective projections and opinions that don’t really reflect the world as it is. Without Truth and Objectivity there won’t be a change for the “better”, nor a raise in consciousness, within and without.

In that sense, many well-meaning and good-hearted folks who want a better world actually do more “harm” than any “good” by ignoring and denying aspects of our reality that may not fit into their subjective “positive” world view; instead believing that by shutting the “negative” out and just seeing everything as “One” and “Light”, visualizing, meditating on “world peace” and projecting “love and light”, it will create peace and harmony. Nothing could be further from the truth and that is actually exactly what certain forces, who do not wish humanity to awaken for their own interests, want us to do and believe. It ties in with how religious and spiritual values have been corrupted.

In other words, the ones exposing the lies and atrocities in the world, the ones looking at the world as it is with all the different “faces of god” including the unpleasant ones which many people perceive as “negative” and hence like to ignore, are actually doing LIGHT WORK in the true meaning of the word: Making the darkness conscious, raising awareness and shining LIGHT into it. Light is information and knowledge, not just making things “light” in the sense of being “nice” or “kind” and “loving” without saying anything “bad” or “heavy”.

“When we talk about compassion we talk in terms of being kind. But compassion is not so much being kind; it is being creative [enough] to wake a person up.”

– Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoch

This contrived “niceness” seems also very common in today’s conscious movements, where people don’t want to say anything “negative”, in their subjective understanding of it of course. In general, some folks hide behind a “social etiquette” and mask without wanting to say anything “bad” or touching on any “taboo subjects”. They speak around issues in order to be spiritually or politically “correct” so as to “not step on anyone’s toes”.

The other day I was at a yoga class and the teacher finished the class with a prayer in which she also said: “Let’s be conscious of what we say, and if we don’t have anything nice to say, it’s better to be silent”. That is a good example of the distortion of “being conscious/aware” and relates to the fact why more spiritual-minded people don’t look at the world more objectively, speaking out and standing up against the lies and psychopathic ways of our culture. Because it’s not “nice” to say that Obama is a pathological liar and that there are no “free elections” in the US. It’s not “nice” to state that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza or that there are some serious issues with the man-made Global Warming “science”. It’s not “nice” to point out that 4- 6% of humanity have no conscience by birth and are mostly found in positions of power. It’s not “nice” to claim that 9/11 was an Inside Job. Not only is it not “nice”, it’s also being “negative” according to some people’s convoluted perception, hence one should not say anything at all. This attitude of contrived “niceness” essentially creates the conditions for conformity, complacency, ignorance and the atrophy of critical thinking.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that one should be mean, aggressive and rude or push information on someone who didn’t ask for it. It simply means to be sincere and honest with conscience and awareness. There is a time to speak up and a time to be silent. And sometimes you have to be direct, call a spade a spade and give the lie what it deserves: the truth,  regardless of what others may think, even if it doesn’t sound “nice” and it doesn’t conform to what someone “likes” to hear. You can be considerate and still speak the truth, even if others see it as “negative” from their conditioned point of view.

“Cowardice asks the question: “Is it safe”?
Expediency asks the question: “Is it politic”?
Vanity asks the question: “Is it popular?”
But conscience asks the question: “Is it right?”
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular
but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one what is right.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is also interesting to note that if there is something presented which may not look that “pretty” it is sometimes judged as “fear-mongering”. If a person reacts to certain information with fear, maybe he/she needs to examine it within themselves before blaming the ones who are just showing something which not many people really have looked into or are even aware of? I’ve said many times that I do not like what I’ve come across, but it is there and it doesn’t go away by ignoring it. Sure, there are some folks out there who do engage in fear-mongering purposely with all kinds of unfounded claims and disinformation (even making money off it), so discernment is key as usual.

However, “discomfort” can serve a purpose. There is a chance for healing from a shamanic and esoteric perspective. It is good to put oneself into a state of vulnerability when looking at the “darker” aspects of our reality or of oneself; truly looking at it, facing it and not giving the ego a chance to explain it all away, so we can go back to our comfort zone and ultimately back to “sleep”. It is not about buying into fear and panic either. 
Sometimes things need to be confronted without automatically defending our beliefs and views , allowing us to look at the world and ourselves more objectively. That’s part of the awakening process and it entails separating truth from lies within and without.

Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.

– Frantz Fanon

In the end most people are only afraid of the unknown and what they don’t understand. Once we make the effort to deprogram ourselves from our conditioning and gain knowledge and understanding within AND without (shine “LIGHT” into darkness!), our awareness/consciousness rises and we start to SEE in alignment with who we truly are, beyond preference, wishful thinking or denial and then can act in alignment with our Higher Self and the Universe.

Something that I hear a lot these days as well is the need to be more “”heart-centered”, loving and compassionate. I agree, obviously we all need to connect more to our heart, show empathy and compassion, especially extending it the whole world, beyond our close friends and family. But what does that really mean? Many people seem to associate love with emotions and feelings or “niceness”, but is it not more than that, like a higher state of consciousness/being? We seem to mistake many things for “love” and even judge the intellect as “bad” (mistaking it for the monkey/predator mind), hence many suggest that we should “think” with our heart and do what we “feel” like doing, which mostly results in mere self-deception and lack of critical thinking. It’s about aligning the heart with the intellect, intuition with logic, mysticism with science.

“Love is not sentiment. To be sentimental, to be emotional, is not love, because sentimentality and emotion are mere sensations. Sentimentality, emotionalism, is merely a form of self-expansion. To be full of emotion is obviously not love, because a sentimental person can be cruel when his sentiments are not responded to, when his feelings have no outlet.”

– Jiddu Krishnamurti

Love is where there is Truth, Knowledge and Understanding, seeing the world as it and ourselves as we are, not as we like it or want it to be. Love is Light is Knowledge. To love we must know. And to know is to have light. And to have light is to love. And to have knowledge is to love. We need to use the heart AND the intellect, de-condition ourselves and act accordingly in order to raise consciousness. If we truly love life, the world we live in and want positive change, then this also implies to look at the issues and injustices in the world so many of us like to ignore or deny. This is not being “negative”, but the work to be done during this Time of Transition.

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people….Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

The more we are collinear and  SEE the world as it is and act as ONE, the “easier” the transition to a better world for all of us. We do create our reality and our consciousness has an effect on the outside world, but we need to be in alignment with the Whole/Universe, otherwise we will increase entropy and chaos, which also manifests in earth and climate changes, as we can see already happening. Increased awareness combined with action based on truth could mitigate any upcoming catastrophes that seem to be right over the horizon. It’s up to each one of us and all of us together.

“With the approach of the era of the Holy Spirit, everything must be gradually brought to the light of day, not only the secrets of the laboratory but the deepest meanings of esotericism. The same must happen with illusions, errors and lies, which must also be revealed so that they can later be rectified.

The world is suffering from a lack of harmony which gets deeper on every plane, and this is a serious danger to the moral and spiritual recovery of humanity. It also involves a serious risk of failure in the last stage of this Time of Transition that we are now entering, If this risk is not overcome, the Deluge of Fire awaits us. We will have to make an immense effort to ward off this fate, and we have very little time in which to do it.

Man has only himself to blame for the greatness of the effort needed: this is a result of his obstinate refusal to heed the warnings that have been addressed to him time and again by the Divine Voice, just as he continues today to blind himself to the fact that the Deluge of Fire is being made ready.”

– Boris Mouravieff, Gnosis II

The Illusion of Choice

“I voted”.  I saw that update coming up a lot the other day on Facebook at election day, neatly put on a red/blue/white button. What is the underlying message of someone who posts that? To show that one is an upstanding American Citizen doing the “right thing” by executing one’s right to vote? To feel good about oneself? To entice others to vote?

What strikes me as curious is that most of the people who had the “I voted” update never really post anything relevant to what deeper issues this country and the world faces in order to help spread awareness and understanding which could actually result in true change. Just this one day, all of a sudden: “I voted”. Voted what? who? why? Of course I’m not implying that Facebook posts and updates are a real life reflection of what people do or don’t do, but it still is an interesting observation. I’m also not saying that people don’t have the right intention. But as the saying goes, “the path to hell is paved with good intentions”. In a ponerized society with a corrupt political system, good intention, hope and voting don’t result in positive change, but merely wishful thinking and denial.

Obama’s election in 2008 should have taught that lesson, but many people still seem to be mesmerized and hypnotized by his persona, hype and slogans that they can’t see him for who he is: a corporate puppet and just as big of a liar as his predecessor, if not worse. The last two years speak for themselves as he supports the same agendas as Bush, most of all the phony war on terror. How can it be that the masses are so easily duped? It didn’t come as a surprise as I wrote in my article two years ago when he got “elected”: The men behind Barack Obama: Hope and Reality

“President Obama does one thing, and Brand Obama gets you to believe another. This is the essence of successful advertising – you buy or do what the advertiser wants, because of how they make you feel. He’s a marketing dream, but like Calvin Klein or Benetton, he is a brand that promises something special, something exciting almost risqué, as if he might be radical. As if he might enact change. He makes people feel good, he’s a postmodern man with no political baggage, and all that’s fake.”
– John Pilger

In regards to the latest election there is something else I noticed. I’ve seen more posts on Facebook about Prop.19 to legalize Marijuana (or not) here in California in the last days than posts on the anniversary of 9/11 to expose the biggest lie of the new millennium. A lie that has cost more lives and affects the world and us more than the issue about pot being legal or not. I’m not against pot being legalized, but it is interesting to see where people’s attention and focus is.

So some of you have voted. May I ask you what you expected by casting your vote, besides focusing on propositions? That your favorite party gets more seats in the senate/house? Which side did you choose: left, right, blue or red or maybe some “independent” liberal party? What do you expect is going to change by casting your vote once or every two and four years?

Let me ask another way. What do you do the rest of the year? Where do you get your information from? How do you educate yourself about what is going on?  What are you telling or would you tell your children and kids in general? What do you speak out about, when are you silent, what do you ignore? Do you really know who and what you support by voting? Do you question what you are being told, what you have learned in school and what society, official culture, government and the mainstream media is trying to make you believe?

Just some questions and food for thought. Questions I ask myself all the time. I’m not saying that any of you are not doing their best in their own ways and lives to make this world a better place. Most people’s intention and heart is in the right place, but maybe there is more to consider, something we haven’t honestly looked at?

The American left is a phantom. It is conjured up by the right-wing to tag Barack Obama as a socialist and used by the liberal class to justify its complacency and lethargy. It diverts attention from corporate power. It perpetuates the myth of a democratic system that is influenced by the votes of citizens, political platforms and the work of legislators. It keeps the world neatly divided into a left and a right. The phantom left functions as a convenient scapegoat. The right-wing blames it for moral degeneration and fiscal chaos. The liberal class uses it to call for ‘moderation.’ The corporations that control mass communications conjure up the phantom of a left. They blame the phantom for our debacle. And they get us to speak in absurdities.” – Chris Hedges

There are no free elections in this country. There hasn’t been in a long time. The Voting System is a fraud sold to the public to give them the illusion of choice. The same goes for the two-party set-up. Democrats and Republicans. Back and forth. Two sides of the same coin. Despite popular belief we actually don’t live in a democracy anymore. People are so caught up in this left/right tunnel vision that they don’t see how they’re being duped and played with.

Brent Kopenhaver Jr. also gives insight in his article “Your Vote Doesn’t count“, addressing some major issues and pointing out:

Elections are nonsense. Not only are they nonsense – they serve to maintain an illusion that we still live in a free, democratic society.”

The political system is an illusion to keep people in bondage. Most people fight to defend the very beliefs which are established by the controllers to keep them enslaved, just like Morpheus said in “The Matrix”:

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it

What I hear at times when I bring up the issue of control and manipulation is: “But I’m not enslaved, I’m free and can do what I want. That’s the beauty of this great land of freedom!” Enslavement in this day and age is not by force or martial law. It’s by the control of consciousness, by implementing beliefs and desires, forming your mind and behaviors to act and do a certain way, making you believe you are “free” and essentially keeping you complacent and distracted from Truth and the real issues this world faces. It certainly is not man-made Global Warming (one of those implemented beliefs to control/distract the masses) which so many Liberals like to focus on these days. Being “environmental conscious”, “green”, striving towards self-sustainability, permaculture, recycling, composting, driving a “Hybrid” car or planting veggies is not enough if we want true change. There are more pressing issues that cry for our attention and awareness.

Sometimes when I mention these points I’m being called a “conspiracy nut” and ridiculed by the ones who have “faith” in the system and believe themselves to be aware and conscious “good Americans” because they act with good intention and “love” when they cast their vote. However, there is no Love where there is no Truth. There is also no Love where there is Wishful Thinking. Love comes from Knowledge and Understanding, to see the world as it is and to see oneself as one is, not as one likes it to be.

“Give these people a voting day every year, so they have the illusion of meaningless choice. Meaningless choice, so we go like slaves and say “I voted”. The limits of debate in this country are established before the debate even begins and everyone else is marginalized and made to be seen as “communists” or some sort of disloyal person…and now it’s conspiracy [theorists]. You see they made that something that shouldn’t be even entertained for a minute that powerful people might get together and have a plan. Doesn’t happen. You’re a nut case! You’re a conspiracy buff!”- Geroge Carlin

The illusion of National Identification and Patriotism is also something that many people are chained to. As Krishnamurti said “Patriotism is a Disease”. It keeps us separated just like religious identification and belief. The leaders of this country and the world couldn’t care less about America and other nations. These beliefs are just part of the circus show to keep people confined. What rules the world are Transnational Corporations and other interests.  Wars are also not fought for National Securities or Patriotism, but the lie of “Patriotism” (with its emotional attachment of “Pride”) is being sold to the masses to follow without questioning.

“Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people’s brains and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead.” – Arundhati Roy

There is much information available to show the truth in these matters that need to be exposed before anything will change. Everything else is justre-arranging the surface or like staring at the shadows on the wall in Plato’s allegory of The Cave.

Be it the futility of voting, corporate take-over (also called Fascism), the 9/11 inside Job, Israel’s influence on America’s politic and Zionism in general, especially how it affects the Media, The Global Warming Agenda and the most underestimated topic of all: Psychopathy in Power and Political Ponerology. Political figures and even every day people who have no conscience (by birth, not through upbringing or conditioning) and who do not feel or think like me or you do, no feelings for empathy, compassion, love or remorse. However, they can pretend and act “as IF”. The effects of Psychopathy on Society and the world is underrated and hardly understood, mostly even ignored because people want to believe in the “good” of all people. After all, “we’re all one and we just need to recognize that and focus on “love” “, as it is proclaimed by many “New Age” folks. Yes, we are all one, but we are not the same and some people have a different inner “wiring” than others that is not due to environmental influences or psychological disposition. We’re not talking about serial killers or convicted murderers, but successful charismatic Individuals that can be found in all parts of life, even under Liberals, the New Age and Conscious Movements of today. This has nothing to do about “us vs. them”, but understanding how complex humanity actually is, what we choose to believe/wish for and what we avoid to look at and confront, within and without. Check out these links for more on that:

The Mask of Sanity

Reflections on Political Ponerology

Political Ponerology


Too many people hold the idea that psychopaths are essentially killers or convicts. The general public hasn’t been educated to see beyond the social stereotypes to understand that psychopaths can be entrepreneurs, politicians, CEOs and other successful individuals who may never see the inside of a prison.” – Dr. Robert Hare

This is just skimming the surface. There is more information, articles, essays, books, videos and research that examine each of the points I mentioned in-depth, much of it what others and I post on FB all the time. But who will actually make time and look into it? This is the age of fast food information, of twitter and quick Facebook updates, of texting, ADD and short attention spans. People are too busy with all kinds of trivialities in their lives. Most of them can’t be even bothered to THINK and many are too concerned with themselves to keep an eye on the world. I know life is not easy at times and we do need to take care of ourselves. There is much to do, but “having no time” to look into these matters seems to be a quick excuse these days, especially considering how they affect us and the world at large on a daily basis. Truth can’t be spoon-fed, nor will it be on Oprah anytime soon or neatly packaged in a five min. youtube clip. It is up to each of us to make an effort to seek Truth and speak out about it, even if it contradicts with our cherished long-held beliefs.

I had people saying that these “conspiracies” are “unwarranted claims”, but the same people do not look into the evidence and research that is out there and so debunk something they haven’t even looked into sincerely. There is an unconscious psychological protective mechanism that prevents people to face certain truths about the world and essentially about themselves, because the Truth will shatter much of what they believe in and they’d have to adjust their lives accordingly, most of all admitting to themselves that they have been believing in lies. Of course there is also the question of what “others” may think, peer pressure, friends, family, colleagues and so on. People don’t want to “rock the boat”. This is how the “matrix” protects itself and the “sheeple police the sheeple”, so no ones steps out of line. But in the end only Truth will truly set us free and help us to embrace a brighter future for ourselves and our children. Denial and Avoidance will essentially backfire as it is already.

“The scientific discourse misses the fact that the ability to deny is an amazing human phenomenon, a product of sheer complexity of our emotional, linguistic, moral and intellectual lives. Denial is a complex unconscious defense mechanism for coping with guilt, anxiety and other disturbing emotions aroused by reality.” – Stanley Cohen

There is another issue that come with voting in a corrupted system and believing in lies. On a deeper level (metaphysically speaking), by voting and by identifying yourself with a party (left or right) you actually give validity to the corrupt system, two-party set-up and essentially your “permission” to keep it in place. In a sense you actually give up your “free will” by believing in lies (taking the false for the true and the true for the false) and supporting them with your “vote”. It’s how the “matrix” works and keeps itself in place: By the consensus of the people believing in it and supporting it through their actions and beliefs. No matter how good a lie sounds, how good it feels or what “positive” effect it may have (wishful thinking), there are metaphysical repercussions that affect everyone and the whole world “negatively” and actually feed entropy, essentially keeping the false system and control in place by giving it “energy”, regardless if the people who support/believe lies (unknowingly or not) are very loving, positive and mean well. In a sense by voting and buying into the illusion of “free choice” people tend to do more “harm” than any “good”. The exact opposite of what we’re being told (“Rock the Vote!”) and have been conditioned to believe. Obviously it’s not about just not voting and doing nothing. It’s about gaining Knowledge and educating ourselves and see the “fraud” and the lies for what they are. Then we Know what to DO and most importantly what NOT to do. The more people engage in seeking Truth and work together in that regard, the better the chance that reality (as a Whole) will change for the “better”, because we DO create our own reality but it’s not as simple as portrayed in the many distorted New Age “You Create Your Own Reality” bits. This is a topic on its own, getting more into the realm of Esoterica, Quantum Mechanics and Metaphysics. This article touches upon that issue a little bit: Order Out of Chaos

“Illusion, thinking it is reality, takes reality for illusion” – Boris Mouravieff, Gnosis

One of the questions I’ve been asked is what do I suggest we DO if we don’t vote?

Well, what an interesting question, which reflects how we’ve been conditioned with basically only two options to choose from (left or right). I’m in no position to tell anyone what to do. I can give some suggestions and food for thought, but eventually the drive to seek to truth and act upon it, living life beyond personal interests but with awareness of the bigger picture needs to come from oneself.

Having said that, here are some suggestions:

1. The most important part is to gain Self-Knowledge and work on oneself to become a better person and “be the change“. I touched upon that in the blog “Know Thyself“. Self-Knowledge and Self-Work is also needed to truly understand the world “out there”. We are all works in process and all there is are lesson, but there needs to be effort to cut through our conditioning. It doesn’t happen by itself. It’s about conscious evolution.

“The change must begin with the human being, not with the outward structure. The human being is confused, the human being is conditioned. He believes, and therefore there is a contradiction in himself. He is really, deeply confused and if he wants to change the social structure, the change from confusion only breeds more confusion. Whereas, if he could bring about clarity within himself, and from that clarity act, then such an action is really a deep psychological revolution. That revolution is absolutely necessary.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

2. Educate yourself and seek Information and Knowledge outside the realm of official culture and mainstream media. Question everything! A very good news site I can highly recommend to check out daily is Signs Of the Times . Objective investigative Journalism with contributions from a global network. Probably the best news site on the web.

3. Turn off your TV. As a matter of fact, get rid of it. Create a meditation space there instead. This article gives some insight of how watching TV modifies and programs (literally) our behaviors, desires, beliefs and even is detrimental to your health: Want Better Health? Stop Watching Television…For Good .
Take care of your health with exercise, yoga, qi gong, meditation, massage, breathwork, healthy diet (stay away from gluten, wheat, dairy, sugar), spending time in nature, etc… . The body and mind are one. What you eat and how you live has an effect on how you think and feel.

4. Network and talk about these topics to friends and family or new people you meet. Don’t be afraid to speak up. Awareness is the first step to change, Of course it is not about preaching or forcing one’s view on another, but about raising Awareness and “pushing the envelope”, spreading some “seeds” here and there if appropriate. There is a time to talk and a time to be silent, but not falling into Complacency, Conformity, Self-Importance, Anger or Rage. Meet on a regular basis with a group of like-minded people, so you can get feedback and keep each other “awake”, discussing these issues, creating community based on Truth, Knowledge and essentially Love. Together we’re stronger.

“Cowardice asks the question:”Is it safe”?
Expediency asks the question:”Is it politic”?
Vanity asks the question:”Is it popular?”
But conscience asks the question:”Is it right?”
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular
but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one what is right.”
– Martin Luther King

5. Blogging and using Social Networks to spread awareness and information. Facebook and other sites can be great tools to raise awareness and network beyond just talking about oneself, how much you love life or what you had for breakfast. We can keep each other informed and provide better and more insightful news than the mainstream media.

These are just some suggestions. More can be done and each of us should look deeply into oneself, of how one is being honest with oneself, others and the world at large. Everyone can do something to raise awareness and make this world a better place, each according to his/her unique talents that go beyond immediate self-gratification or self-interest that keeps one in a subjective tunnel vision. However this also entail questioning what we believe to be true or not and not mistake objectivity for negativity or wishful thinking for positivity.

The future is not set in stone. It all depends on each of us. The more people wake up to truth and see the world as it is, not as we “like” it to be, the better for all. Awareness creates change, not simply “positive thinking”, visualizing or meditating on “peace. Providing solutions without first getting a better understanding of ourselves and what is truly going on in the world can be self-defeating in the long run. Discernment is needed and separating truth from lies, within and without. This higher awareness then results in action that will have lasting positive results and not just change of “appearances”.

There is much we’ll have to come to terms with before true change can happen. Let’s not miss the opportunity during this “Time of Transition”. There is work to do, but it’s what we signed up for.
