We live in interesting times. For the past three plus years the occupants of this planet have been gaslit, bombarded with fear, lies and more lies. We live in a world where banks lend money they don’t have then charge interest on it. Companies profit from illness, war and energy crises. Politicians set rules they don’t themselves obey. The loyalties and monetary interests of the people that are meant to represent us lie elsewhere.
Throughout history the wealthy have perpetuated the same scam, profiting from the misery of the masses. A very small number of people control nearly all of society through indoctrination, distraction and fear, pitting the masses against one another while they profit from the crises and confusion.
They create problems, blame them on something or someone else and then they offer solutions that benefit them. Ockham’s razor is a philosophical theory that says the correct explanation is the one with the fewest assumptions. When I look at the events that have occurred recently the only explanation I can see is extreme greed.
Greed has led to corrupt government and media leading to a corruption of society, a society of consumers who are taught they need to look outside of themselves to feel OK, who believe it is up to other people to make them feel accepted, or safe. Anything beyond this is an assumption so I don’t blame religion, other races or the Archons. Assuming anything beyond the simplest explanation is a waste of energy.
You can’t expect the people who create the problems to fix them. For generations governments all around the world have convinced their populations that pricing future generations out of owning a home is a good thing. That they can get the inflation they have created under control. That wars are necessary. The majority have been so indoctrinated that they actually thought social isolation, lack of fresh air, the closure of gyms and cancellation of medical treatments was for their health and too many of them still do.
What’s The Solution?
It doesn’t look like we’re going to be able to vote or protest our way out of this. Any tweaks to the existing system will become corrupted because the system has been designed to be corruptible. Turning on each other is exactly what they want. Divide and conquer is a strategy that governments use very effectively. A violent reaction to the destruction of life as we knew it won’t be directed appropriately. It will only be villainized and used as an opportunity to impose more suppressive measures. No one is coming to save us. We need to save ourselves, but not through the means that have been used in the past.
How Can We Do It?
We can do it by changing where we focus our attention, stop focusing on things you can’t control. Trying to control what you have no control over is going to cause you a world of pain, anger, anxiety and depression. You can’t control what other people choose to believe or how they react to it. You can control your own reactions by becoming aware of the emotions the developing situations evoke.
Trying to force other people to believe what you believe, to take responsibility for making you feel safe or accepted is abusive. Trying to wake people up, arguing whether the world is or isn’t flat, wishing death on people who don’t or do take treatments isn’t an effective use of anyone’s time. Let people believe what they want to believe. If you feel their beliefs are dangerous to you, stay away from them. Identify what you could do to improve your own life and what steps you need to take to achieve those improvements.
Be Prepared To Say No!
Know what your values are. Know what you will accept and what you won’t accept. Stick to those values and be prepared to say no to anything that doesn’t match them. We have anger to help us defend ourselves and our boundaries. When we are unsure of our values, or fear them being attacked, it can lead to living in a constant state of anger. When you identify your values and know that you will say no to anything that transgresses them, even if that means losing friends and family, you don’t need to live in fight-or-flight. The situation you fear is less likely to happen because you will be more pleasant to be around, and it’s easier to express facts when we are calm.
Have Faith In Your Own Judgement
When you make a decision, stick to it, go with your instincts and don’t let other people sway your choices. Most people have been shamed out of their feelings and emotions. Society has taught them that emotions are bad and should be suppressed. Emotions aren’t bad, and trying to suppress them only makes things worse. People have been taught to question their own decisions, to look to others for approval and reassurance.
Don’t Judge Others
Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have, so don’t judge others. If you don’t like a person’s behaviour or how they treat you, just stay away from them. There’s always two sides to every story. Don’t jump on the bandwagon if you see someone being demonised in your social circle or in the media. When we feel a strong aversion to a person, that is an opportunity to do shadow work, to ask ourselves if that person has traits we have been shamed out of, or if we are over-identifying with opposing ones.
Sun Tzu said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
Focus On Improving Yourself
Regardless of your views on the state of the world or the goals you want to achieve, your first step should always be to focus on you and how you can improve. How are you creating your reality? Anxiety and dysfunctional relationships had caused me a lot of struggles in life until about ten years ago. After a nasty divorce my family put me in a situation which forced me to work on self improvement, I began to look for ways to change. I found hypnotherapy and inner child work to have the most effect in my journey, and I am glad I did. If I hadn’t done the work I have done on myself I have no idea how I would have coped with the last few years. Society is made up of individuals, so if everyone took time to work on themselves, to release the shame they have internalised, to reconnect with their emotions, identify their values, increase self-esteem, confidence, overcome people pleasing to be prepared to say no… the world would have to improve. Wouldn’t it?
