8 Ways Spiritual People May Be Fooling Themselves

It’s not all ‘love and light’ – sometimes you have to RAGE against the machine (and yourself).
Great article.

Openhearted Rebel

By Elina St-Onge, Collective Evolution

Who is more aligned with their path of spiritual evolution?

  • A person sitting in a lotus position, taking deep breaths and in perfect composure?
  • Or a person curled up in a ball, crying hysterically?

If we base our answer on everything we have learned from “new age” philosophies and most spiritual teachings out there, I think it’s fair to say that the person meditating wins. He/she appears peaceful, at ease, and detached. Now I’m not about to “shock” you and say that the opposite is true. But I would argue that this image is just that: an image.

In the Beginning was the End

The truth is within all of us if we have heart to see it.

Born Outside the Box

It’s just getting interesting here on planet earth. Now’s when Truth breaks through, Gaia shrugs and the Universe humbles our puny paradigms to bring the point home. 

What groundless, truthless and ruthless insanity we’re witnessing. Think of the fear based mindset behind almost every action and reaction, the craving for safety and security and self preservation. Besides survival being an imposed false goalpost in the human psyche, people don’t see the power of death as their friend and companion.

Humanity is so caught up in linear duality it’s remarkable. Their hearts know better but they won’t stop to listen.

This Yahweh and Co.’s creepy hierarchical control plan has almost fizzled out now, yet humanity sustains it. Hence the death throes and psychopathic vibes by which people are whipped around. If they haven’t done the true self work they’ll be thrown under the bus. You…

Fear and Loathing on Planet

 

I had a vision today and this is what came out.

It is easy to think that the world seems to be inundated with fear and loathing these days. When one watches the goings on the world, either through mainstream or alternative media sources, one is transported into fear, despair, separation, blame and a sense that nothing is ‘right’ in the world. One can be easily assume that protection from such forces can only be achieved through the established forms and norms such as government, law, police, military and so on. That regulation and punishment of those responsible are what is necessary along with ever increasing controls in order to maintain the ‘order’ which is believed to be necessary to combat such disturbances in our societies.

If you think 1984 was was bad you have another thing coming. In 1984, humans were still needed to wage war, to operate the machines of war, to control the populous, to write the propaganda; the New World Order is not about controlling you and everyone else on the planet, it is about the final battle for humanity itself and humanity doesn’t stand a chance if it doesn’t GET OFF IT’S KNEES NOW.

Do you not see the changes in your lifetime? The SHOCK AND AWE on every level – ever wonder why kids cannot even draw a gun in school without the police getting involved – because in today’s technology (3D printing and as it advances exponentially) drawing is creating.

Why there is ‘punishment’ associated with feeding the poor and down trodden? Because they are useless eaters and leeches on the rest of society for they don’t pull themselves up by their bootstraps and instead are more likely to turn to crime and steal from me.

Ever wonder why a peaceful protest is met with military style police with their non-lethal weapons (which still maim and kill), pepper spraying and beating already ‘kettled’ protesters which have nowhere to run? To instill fear and obedience by punishing you for daring to stand up and speak against the hand which feeds you (for now).

Since 2001 humanity has freely given away their power for the promise of security (don’t get me wrong, it started way before then). You have allowed the few to control more and more; and those which they cannot control, they destroy with the vast array of ‘impressive’ toys of war at their disposal. They had spent decades prepping you for that moment; a ‘terrorist’ here, a ‘dictator’ there while creating the ‘evil doers’ and filling your heads with the ‘rule of law’, ‘international responsibility’ (U.N.) and ‘peacekeeping’ missions (for only the military has the resources to deploy to ‘help and save’ people). Now we are a point where the populous actually believes that in order to ‘save’ the children in certain areas of the world, we must bomb and destroy their countries.

Dehumanizing them was easy over my lifetime, after all there were so many colorful terms for these peoples of which we know nothing about except for what we have heard or been made to believe through revisionist history and blatant propaganda: terrorists, beheaders, camel jockeys, towel heads, pakkies, sand niggers and many more; but of course we don’t say these in public, for that would be unacceptable and we like to claim, after all, civility while we bomb them back to the stone age.

Ever bothered to really look into what these ‘monsters’ were like before we sent in the ordinances? Have you ever bothered to visit any of these places and talk to the people? Have you ever bothered to really look into the ‘different’ societies which these countries were trying to build without your programmed fears of this ‘ist’ or that ‘ism’?

The police and military personnel or ‘order followers’ as Mark Passio points out, are all to eager to execute whatever the masters order them to do, for they have been indoctrinated to ‘fear for their lives’ at any ‘provocation’, making an enemy of everyday people which simply don’t obey on command, while believing that they are actually ‘serving and protecting’ and hold the moral high ground. But these lap dogs of the elite are still prone to the occasional compassion, empathy, and morals although in demonstrably fewer instances.

The future will no longer need these second degree psychopaths with their inherent weaknesses as the robot soldier and police are being developed and perfected. A robot will not think twice before killing women and children for it will simply see a target as it looks them in the eyes to do so; no matter what you have been led to believe with the laws of robotics and their ‘protect human life’ programming propagated in your favorite science fiction thriller.

Half of all jobs to be automated, autonomous cars to relieve humans of the mundane chore of driving and keeping us ‘safe’ in the process, constant surveillance, 3D printed construction  and much more coming your way which will make you dependent on whatever the ‘owners’ of these technologies deem fit for you, if they let you survive at all. The Georgia Guidstones popped up out of nowhere, not as a warning but in mockery of what is to come.

They are gearing up for something huge and it won’t be pretty for anyone; a trillion here a quadrillion there all spent on military and ‘defense’, robotics, surveillance and other technologies which will render most OBSOLETE. Can you even put into context how many life credits (money) that actually is? Do a search for “what a trillion dollars look like” – even after that I cannot conceptualize it and I cannot see any of these advancements being developed for the ‘good’ of humanity. Don’t get me wrong, I know that used for good these technologies could propel humanity into an amazing age of discovery and evolution; T.V. could have done so much good also.

Meanwhile the eugenicists warn of mass die offs from unknown virus and peddle their vaccines to protect and save you but what if that unknown death comes in the form of a vaccine which lays dormant until activated? If there is a plan for a mass cull, no better than voluntary (fear based) and mandatory vaccines.

So smoke your legalized marijuana and zone out from the hints which they drop everywhere in their path, after all we have fought so hard for the ‘freedom’ of a plant so might as well finally enjoy it. Sing koombaya and smell the flowers and love and light for I suppose that with being pacified for our entire lives, it gets difficult to spot the obvious.

Something is definitely on the horizon. Some say that it is predetermined but to believe in that would be a rejection of our individual power; the acquiescence to something external for our very fate and something which is totally out of our control. Stop fighting amongst yourselves over the most trivial of differences (programmed) and see the divide and conquer strategies used at every level of your lives; left/right man/woman white/other illegal/legal immigrant/citizen WTF?

What does one reach for when they have reached ‘the end of their rope’? Does one make the knot, wait to be saved or snap out of it? This is where I see the state of humanity these days; DO OR DIE.

Context – The Shifting Sands of Subjective Awakening

The subjectivity of this supposed awakening is one of the things which slows it down.
Detach and set yourself free.

Born Outside the Box

Funny how in this manufactured whirled of social and moral relativism people still find grounds to judge so quickly about anything and everything. Little do they know they’re standing in shifting sands on sliding platforms with no true conscious or aware point of reference.

Natural law has been eviscerated from our consciousness.

Thanks to massive social engineering programs, fallacy based education, and now political correctness, there’s nowhere to stand that’s based in reality. Unless you dig for it. And once you find it act upon it.

Natural, truly connected living has been yanked from beneath us. Where’s the context for anything now? From whence do we judge anything? There’s right judgement which is necessary for conscious living, and there’s wrong judgement which falsely evaluates situations and people constantly without the full facts or “walking in their shoes”.

In other words, what is the true…

We Already Live in a Free Market – Here’s Why It’s No Utopia (Yet)

 

We Already Live in a Free Market – Here’s Why It’s No Utopia (Yet)

April 30, 2017 (Tony Cartalucci – LD) – The fundamental problem with free market proponents is that many fail to realize we already have an absolutely, 100% free market. Within that free market, a clique of incredibly wealthy, well connected, and well organized individuals have decided to use their freedom to create “governments” they influence, media they control, police who impose by force their will upon populations, a military to either protect their racket or project it beyond their current areas of operation, and all else we associate with “statism.”

The fact is, should we be able to push a button and suddenly render Earth a government-free planet, the first order of business wealthy, well-connected, well-organized individuals will do is band together to create gangs, then mafias, then governments, then supranational blocs, until they then move on to pursue global hegemony as they chaff against competing factions doing likewise – entrapping the rest of us within their self-serving struggle.

This of course does not render void the ideology of agorism or anarchy. Neither does it negate the positive, practical aspects of the modern nation-state. What it does is illustrate a matter of practicality versus principles and the necessity to balance them realistically.

Might Makes Right 

The above scenario unfolds the way it demonstrably does on a daily basis and since the beginning of time because wealthy, well-connected, well-organized individuals are able to successfully hone and wield the tools of physical force better than any of their competitors.

Imagining again the scenario where the world is suddenly rendered government-free, these individuals would simply eliminate by force those attempting to impose upon them limitations preventing them from imposing their will involuntarily upon others.

Without a sufficient means of deterrence, gangs, mafias, governments, and supranational blocs will run roughshod over any and all who stand between them and greater wealth and influence.

Balance of Power 

To prevent a gang, mafia, government, or supranational bloc from expanding further, it requires an equal but opposed center of organized power arrayed against it.

Imagining the scenario where the world is suddenly rendered government-free, in order to prevent wealthy, well-connected, well-organized individuals from imposing their will upon others, an equitable balance of power would need to be established.

This could entail various means of decentralization where individuals were able to possess equal but opposed means of self-defense, monetary exchange, manufacturing, communication, energy production, and all other essentials currently monopolized by the world’s existing centers of power.

Decentralization is Already Happening 

In many ways this is already happening. Decentralization is unfolding on various levels. On a global level, competing centers of power are multiplying.

The United States is no longer the sole global hegemon as it was after the end of the Cold War.

Russia has reemerged, China is rising, the other nations of BRICS are increasingly competing across a broad spectrum of socioeconomic, military, and geopolitical areas. Developing nations are individually and collectively asserting national and regional sovereignty not enjoyed since before the Age of Empires.

Technology has made it possible for these nations to create their own alternatives to monopolies only the largest global superpowers had the resources to possess. This includes aircraft manufacturing, aerospace engineering, energy production, monetary exchange, medicine, and all other aspects of modern civilization.

Within any given nation, large economic monopolies are facing greater, more diverse, and distributed competition from individuals and small start-ups also leveraging technology to do today what it took armies of workers and mountains of capital to do decades ago.

The alternative media is one example of this. The organic food industry taking on established agricultural monopolies is another.

Don’t Let Ideology Obstruct Necessary Transitions 

Before you can have an agorist or anarchist utopia, global hegemony must transform into global competition. Competing supranational blocs must give way to competing independent nation-states, and independent nation-states must give way to decentralized states and eventually increasing levels of localization and individualism.

None of it can be done overnight, and none of it can be done without the necessary prerequisites being fulfilled beforehand.

This does not mean that one must support a government in principle. It means, however, that for practical purposes, we must support what blocs, governments, and various special interests represent in terms of creating an equitable balance of power and fulfilling the prerequisites needed to make this transition.

For example, a military-led government took power in the Southeast Asian state of Thailand. The government it replaced was a client regime organized and installed into power with US support. The United States had expanded its hegemony nearly to the other side of the planet. The military-led government – however unappealing it is in principle – in practice has pushed back a global hegemony at the cost of becoming a national hegemony.

In Thailand, however, the government lacks the ability to dominate society in the same scope and to the same degree as the US-backed client regime had. Within Thailand, the ability to decentralize is not only possible and being pursued, it is actually encouraged in many ways by many within the current government and the special interests within Thailand that the current government represents.

In other aspects, because of opposing special interests within Thailand itself, centralization is being encouraged. Preventing the return of a US client regime is essential, and so is contesting those favoring centralization. It is a delicate balance that must be struck – with principles as a guide, but practicality as a priority.

Unequivocally opposing the current Thai government simply undermines its ability to obstruct supranational interests from reasserting themselves. However, the current government does not require unequivocal support – it simply needs support for the few aspects it is actually providing a benefit to in terms of making the transition from globalization to localization and individualism.

Ideological Purists are Still Needed 

During a transition, it is not impossible for those who believe in an agorist or anarchist future to find themselves overly invested in “practicality” at the cost of principles.

For agorism in particular, where free market solutions are seen as a vector toward a better tomorrow, it is easy for an individual who has accrued wealth, power, and influence to become part of the problem rather than the solution. Ideological purists help pull these individuals out of their ruts and back toward their original, ideological destination.

Take SpaceX and Tesla’s Elon Musk who has often said that virtually every problem we face as a civilization has a free market solution. Musk’s popularity and prominence is owed to his ability to put purpose before profits – but still make profits. However, in theory, it would not be difficult for him to forsake purpose for profits and find himself the head of companies blindly chasing quarterly earnings for shareholders rather than accomplishing his original, nobler goals.

Ideological purists – and not simply those who are critics, bloggers, and commentators – but the very customers and investors involved in his companies encourage Musk to continue prioritizing purpose before profits. Should at any time Musk fail to do this, these ideological purists will open the door of opportunity for the “next Musk,” the “next SpaceX,” and the “next Tesla.”

There already is a free market – and those who currently dominate human civilization used that freedom to accrue for themselves unwarranted power and influence at the cost of the majority.

We must understand that while the “state” is a human construct, it is backed up by very real physical force, economic monopolies, financial domination, and industrial might. The only way to secure our own place within the existing free market, is to diminish these advantages through establishing an incremental balance of power between blocs, states, within states, and eventually between individuals.

Do this by creating alternatives to the current monopolies of money and industry, redistributing the current concentration of power, wealth, and influence through localized entrepreneurship.

The cost in the free market for organized individuals to impose their will upon others is not only minimal, it is profitable. Remove the profit and increase the cost, and this involuntary imposition of will becomes nearly impossible.
