"If we want to improve the world we cannot do it with scientific knowledge but with ideals. Confucius, Buddha, Jesus and Gandhi have done more for humanity than science has done. We must begin with the heart of man—with his conscience—and the values of conscience can only be manifested by selfless service to mankind." Einstein
This is exactly the attitude necessary if we wish to live together in harmony now and in the future. It is necessary in intentional communities, villages, and cities. A new paradigm must incentivize this.
People speak of being spiritual or awake, but if it doesn't include humility (seeing that on an absolute scale, we are all equal in value), being kind and helpful always and whenever possible, as well as a lighthearted and playful manner, and recognizing the sacredness of all of existence, don't let your ego fool you into believing that you are spiritual.
Just as hope serves as an antidote to despair, false hope or hope based on false premises only perpetuates illusions.
In these trying times, the best antidote for despair, is to engage in activism, selfless service to mankind. Discover your passion and align with others who share that passion and find ways to leverage your actions to maximize your effectiveness.
Addendum: A child with loving parents, gets used to always receiving and at some point when it doesn't receive what it wants, will throw a tantrum and become angry and sometimes aggressive. It has learned to believe that its life is only about receiving and has developed expectations around that.
It seems that in order to feel gratefulness, one must experience contrast if one is to appreciate what one has. How much more grateful one might be to receive food for anyone that doesn't often have sufficient food compared to someone who is accustomed to 3 meals a day.
At some point the child must learn that life is about reciprocity and caring for one another and not just receiving. For the sake of the parents, the sooner a child learns this, the more peaceful the home life.
If one can feel grateful every time a dog is not barking, or all the time, one might consider oneself spiritual or awake.
One might ask how it is that citizens accept our gov't. bombing defenseless nations, homelessness, bad drinking water in cities, and so many atrocities daily and for centuries? The answer is that the controllers are masters of propaganda and conditioning. And most all humanity have been and continue to be constantly programmed. They control the media, the movies, the education system, the culture, everything. We are all programmed from birth on. It is much easier for them if they can have us consent to their atrocities unawares.
We all go off to work 5 days a week, many, 50 weeks a year, eight or more hours a day. Most of us have jobs that are not pleasurable, rewarding, interesting, or well paid. But we have to do it, or we could end up in a destitute condition. Apparently 25,000 people die every day for lack of food. We accept all of this, "it's life" we tell ourselves and shuffle along.
At the same time we could all imagine a much better kind of world, which is not so competitive, friendlier, more compassionate, more equitable, without war, without crime, without pollution, and with real freedom. But we never get close to that. It just seems to get worse. Even though technical wonders are always on the increase.
Why does it never get better? I would like to suggest because the controllers control our minds, they program us to accept the injustices and the hardships. Anyone can research how extensively this is done.
Don't think covid 19 is any different. You can be sure we are being manipulated, because we are always being manipulated. And when people think that to say being injected without consent by a corrupt entity is tyranny, people will object and find all sorts of reasons how that is not true, how it is laughable, or even dangerous.
This is an example of people being programmed to accept tyranny as necessary, that is to be forcefully vaccinated, and it is forcefully, when the powers that be keep restricting the rights and options of those who do not wish to be jabbed. This is modern tyranny, but most people believing the hype around the virus will vociferously object. They are the most heavily programmed.
How we are constantly barraged with propaganda (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caCkMX6YdYU) is the reason that I am very suspicious of the general agreement that this vaccine is necessary for everyone on the planet, something Bill Gates has hammered over and over from the beginning and even before. His control over the WHO and the CDC with his huge donations, his connections with Fauci, his control of the media, all these things arouse my suspicions, as all is often not what it appears, as I am sure you know.
The huge reaction to the threat of the virus as compared to the tiny reaction to the threat of climate crises extinction also seems strange. And there are tons of anomalies that would arouse suspicion as to what is really going on here.
I don't say the vaccine is bad, it could be fantastic, I just don't know for sure, and I don't believe in it because everyone just assumes that it is what is necessary. Many times huge segments of humanity have made bad decisions and wrong conclusions, and I don't just believe something because everyone else does. Besides, corruption is everywhere and it's impossible to believe for sure in any information sources any more.
But the big point that everyone may be missing is that once one must have proof of vaccination on one's passport, the game is pretty much over. Humanity will have fallen into their trap and there will be no escaping. More vaccines will be called for, and what they inject in us, God only knows.
And all the other traps will come right after; UBI, universal digital money. It will be just like a modernized 1984. I don't believe that it takes much intelligence to see how this could happen. And the public is following along just as they would want, with people begging to get the vaccine and believing that putting it on passports is the intelligent way to make sure that no one can endanger the rest by refusing the vaccine. Can you see how that could be a trap? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWoDbGNt4wg)
I am skeptical and question everything, but open to all possibilities. I believe humility and personal integrity are very important to constantly cultivate. I am more of an artist and producer. I am for radical change, restructuring, systemic thinking, and regeneration.
I hope that everyone can see that decentralization is essential and that we don't want to continue to make the same mistake of governing vertically, top down (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wywMhg604W8&t=5s).
Anyone can see, if their mind is open, how easily vaccine mandates could be misused. How it could be used to control humanity. The problem with elites calling the shots is that their monumental power gives them the possibility to do whatever they want with impunity. They are offered the greatest temptation of all.
In Dostoyevski's short story, Dream of a Ridiculous Man, he gazes at the moon and wonders, if he was there, would he care at all for the raggedy, crying girl who had been pleading for his help in the miserable, cold, rainy night, whom he had just dismissed and sent away. People have imagined a world run by elites, the most intelligent, the most noble for centuries. It could never work however, because it would be so difficult to find one so pure, so noble and so constant, that they would never capitulate to temptation, ie. absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Now, with humanity hungering for the vaccine and imagining that all who resist the vaccine as selfish, inconsiderate dolts who deserve to have their freedoms restricted, the possibility exists to enact this and once that happens we will be at the mercy of the merciless, those psychopaths who blithely kill millions to make money. They call it war. As it is, being divided, we are already at their mercy, as they have all the power and we, the people have none, and they know it and are thereby more and more bold in their crushing and censoring dissent.
Now everyone knows how they manufacture consent by propagandizing us in every conceivable way non-stop. And they have the world begging for the vaccine even though there is less than one % mortality rate, if one can believe the statistics, which are highly suspect. People have never noticed how they became slaves to the dollar, the mass murder that is done in their name, for a long time they thought the world was flat, and now they don't notice how tyrannous, intimate, and invasive it is for a corrupt government to force injections on its subjects using health safety as the justification. Manufactured consent.
We are about to give all hope of freedom away. Please wake up. If you can refute this, not mock, or make arrogant judgements, that would be a mature and intelligent response, because I would love to be proven wrong.
How To Break the Spell?
Imagine the underside that clandestinely controls the world. After all if one asked oneself, why is it that we must live in a world such as this, with all of its injustices and horrors? There must be a reason for it. In some ways, one might conclude that it is because people allow it. If a man was beating a woman in front of everyone in a downtown city mercilessly, would anyone try to stop it? Only a few would be brave and care enough to act, I would surmise. The majority would not help.
They might think, "it's not my problem" or "it is too dangerous", or perhaps call the police. But some brave, confident person could not stand by and let this grievous, abusive behavior continue without acting. This person would demonstrate moral character. He would be regarded as a hero.
In the big wide world, there are many constant abuses, crimes against humanity, corrupt behavior, etc. and humanity, the vast majority, stand by and don't act. They accept the unacceptable every day of their lives, they are used to it. It's like if you had to live with a bad smell, like in a prison, you may never like it, but you would have to accustom yourself to it over time. One might think that this is why we all live in a world beneath our standards. Then the question might be, how bad does it have to get before it is too much for everyone and there is a rupture, a reaction?
As of now, it seems that there is no dividing line, no point when enough is enough. Powerless people will accept pretty much whatever they are offered. That is what Covid 19 demonstrates. People might protest, almost like just screaming together, and then it's back to the same. It could just get worse and worse, and the most we might see are protests that will perhaps be handled more and more deftly with more and more brutality, with the excuse that it diminishes the health safety of the greater public and therefore cannot be permitted. So that the majority will be cheering the brutality, thinking that the protesters merit this kind of treatment.
All of this can happen because of what people believe. So, the ultimate way to control is obviously by controlling the way people think. And that is what they do through every means possible, i.e education, media, entertainment, religion, and culture.
The secret organization that has no oversight, endless funding, access to the most advanced armaments, with no empathy when it comes to other people's lives, and the freedom to do whatever they want with impunity enjoy absolute power. They can get the president of the united states to do as they please just by presenting him with information that will cause the president to respond in a particular way that they want. It's the same with the public, they are able to present whatever information they want that will make the public believe something and respond in the way they want. They clearly have that power. They have used it since 1948 when they were first conceived.
The ultimate temptation is when one can do anything they like with impunity. Or "absolute power corrupts absolutely." Most will inevitably submit to this temptation. Christ did not, preferring to be crucified. He is the ultimate hero, but his character is likened to a God, and the rest of humanity cannot be expected to be this noble.
All of humanity is offered "the pursuit of happiness" and that could be construed as a watered down deal with the devil, where all essentially sell their soul. The pursuit of happiness is not the same as the power to be able do anything with impunity, it is far less, but one might surmise that humanity sells their collective soul for this bargain.
The pursuit of happiness is available through the mechanism of capitalism. The richer you are, the more options you have, even to the point of being above the law, because you can buy or threaten your way out of any situation, which is similar to the temptation of Christ and to all powerful elites, to have this opportunity or temptation to be able to do anything with impunity.
And it is these corrupted souls that hold and wish to maintain the power at all costs. One might wonder why they want so much control? It seems obvious, their crimes are so heinous, that they must do everything they can to protect themselves from the consequences.
This is the reason that we all must live in this substandard world filled with horrors and injustices. Because these corrupted entities know how to propagandize, lie, condition, and manipulate the minds of the vast majority of humanity. It's almost like hypnosis. We must find a way to break the spell.
At the same time we must cultivate remembering that all are divine even the most unscrupulous and cruel. That all the needs of humanity are beautiful (https://www.cnvc.org/training/resource/needs-inventory), that it is the strategies that can be abhorrent and inhumane.
Wow, so many cool people in Vilcabamba, Ecuador now, in the past, and maybe forever. So many people living fantastic lives. Of course, along the way, there is suffering, strife, pain, and hardship, it can’t be entirely avoided, at least not forever. It all depends on one’s perspective.
Is there hope, is the world actually waking up? Just look at the TED talks, so many incredible people living incredible lives. People living the best versions of themselves, or almost the best version as there will always be room to grow, to go even higher. People doing incredible things. It is all available to us through the miracle of the internet and through our face to face exchanges that we can enjoy in our tiny plaza.
And now we have UFO sightings everyday that so many people have seen. We seem to be living next to an ant’s nest of aliens stationed inside of Mandango mountain. Two of our inhabitants, I have heard, recently, both came to the same strange realization independently, that there is someone living inside of the mountain that is 50,000 years old.
“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” – Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio
Living, as we do, in the valley of conspiracy theories, theories that seem to be true. Of course, most of us are still lost in the illusion of “I”. That is a hard one to shake, so deeply ingrained is the construct known as the ego, the result of conditioning (programming) and circumstance. How many of us can separate ourselves from the drama we call our life?
However, this may be where humanity is moving towards, breaking through the biggest illusion of all, our separation, our sense of who we are. We have ayahuasca, san pedro, LSD, all the aids we could want at our disposal to guide us through the darkness and towards the light, moving from I to We.
And as a local light told me just yesterday, it’s really so easy, all you have to do is live virtuously.
