Karma Doesn’t Exist

The belief in karma is so widely accepted that few people ever stop to question it. Yet, like the belief in government, upon deeper examination, it too falls apart. Consider for a moment that since the beginning of history, those with power have sought to create beliefs which define the parameters of reality through cultural doctrine in order to control those without power, and thereby maintain the status quo. Religion has been a primary example of this. Even under the guise of “spiritual salvation”, religion has a vested interest in maintaining its influence and esteem, much like government (which is why they’re often intertwined). Therefore, engrained in to the precepts of both religion and government is the belief that without their purported “authority”, humanity would crumble in the corruption of its own self-created destruction and sin. This is a time-tested method of social manipulation. One such ideological construct to perpetuate this belief is “karma”.

WHAT IS KARMA?

Like most archaic spiritual concepts, there are various interpretations of what exactly karma is depending on which agenda is using the term. Some interpretations use the concept simply as a means of expressing the virtue of benevolent deeds and the benefit of living in the moment, as opposed to clinging to memory and perpetuating our past shortcomings. This kind of admonition is understandable since it implies no vilification. However, the most widely-accepted definition of karma defines it as:

“the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect). Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering. Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in many schools of Asian religions [but also present in other religions, such as the concept of “Gilgul” in Judaism]. In these schools, karma in the present affects one’s future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives – one’s saṃsāra.”

~ Wikipedia

Historically, the concept of karma came about in India with its earliest mention in the Upanishads, written between 800-500 BC during a time when the hereditary caste system reigned throughout the region. Just as monarchies and emperors relied on the church’s “rule by divine right” to justify their “authority”, the concept of karma was has been widely used as a spiritual justification for the inequities of social oppression and personal misfortune.

“In no instance has a system (in regard to religion) been ever established, but for the purpose – as well as with the effect – of its being made an instrument of intimidation, corruption, and delusion, for the support of depredation and oppression in the hands of governments.”

~ Jeremy Bentham

Embedded in the theory of karma is the supposition that you are somehow fallen and deserving of suffering, responsible for the misery which befalls your life (even if you are an innocent child being tortured and raped). The theory of karma claims that because you “screwed up” at some point, supposedly even in a past life, you are forced in to a subservient position in the unforgiving cosmic drama, and are now doing penance through a veil of tears.

And, of course, what is the proposed means of salvation given by the religious authorities proselytizing this “cosmic judgement”? That we can only truly be saved by rigidly adhering to the moral relativism, rituals, tithing, and narrow dogma of their particular religion.

… How convenient….

Since the dawn of society, people have sought safety and accountability in some form of authority/ justice which aligns with their own world view. This social tendency has given structure to cultures, often with a common myth to believe and unify under. However, when we try to apply our anthropocentric understandings as absolutes on to incomprehensible spiritual realms, we are left with just a parody, not the truth. In the words of Lao Tzu, “The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.”

Tao mystics never talk about God, reincarnation, heaven, hell. No, they don’t talk about these things. These are all creations of human mind: explanations for something which can never be explained, explanations for the mystery. In fact, all explanations are against God because explanation de-mystifies existence. Existence is a mystery, and one should accept it as a mystery and not pretend to have any explanation. No, explanation is not needed – only exclamation, a wondering heart, awakened, surprised, feeling the mystery of life each moment. Then, and only then, you know what truth is. And truth liberates.

~ Osho, “Never Born, Never Died”

On the personal level, the concept of karma plagues many people who have had exceptionally difficult lives. Often they have been unconsciously conditioned, brainwashed, or coerced in to conditions they otherwise wouldn’t want. Other times they are simply afflicted by circumstances beyond their immediate control, like natural disasters or car accidents. Under the burden of karma, they may feel shamed and even cursed. They suffer the pain of hopelessness and guilt, imagining they somehow “brought it on themselves”. They live in fear, as if a sword of damnation is dangling above their heads for the rest of their lives.

Without questioning this belief in karma, we run the risk of victim blaming, assuming that any victim of any injustice is somehow deserving of it. Because karma lays the blame largely on the victim, it may reinforce within a victim a downward spiral of self-punishing/ self-sabotaging behavior. When a person internalizes unfortunate circumstances as if they “deserved it”, it causes them to focus on and anticipate pain. Subsequently, this creates anxiety around trusting those aspects of their life which would otherwise bring happiness and fulfillment because they’re afraid of some vague “karmic inevitability” where their wellbeing will be ripped away in yet another disaster. Eventually this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

To this day, karma has been one of the most misunderstood and unquestioned religious beliefs. The concept of karma has become essentially akin to “God’s judgement”, used to vaguely justify events in life by projecting one’s value system on to the inconceivable immensity of all existence. Due to the numerous social and psychological burdens this belief perpetuates, it’s imperative that we critically examine the idea of karma. Anything that can be destroyed by the truth of objective analysis most certainly should be.

WHY KARMA DOESN’T MAKE SENSE

To objectively assess the validity of personal karma, let’s first examine the question: “What is the individual, objectively speaking?” If all things in existence are connected and, ultimately, “we are all one”, then how can we separate and define the individual apart from everything else? We can do so in name only, but not in reality. The truth is that we can no more separate the individual from the rest of existence any more than we can cut out a wave as entirely separate from the ocean. The concept of our individuality is just that – only a concept. But beyond this extremely limited and boundary-defined 3D perspective of separateness, the objective  truth is that all of life, including our own experience, with its extremely limited perception, exists as a seamless, unbroken, continuous whole. Therefore, from this broader perspective, how can anyone possibly have personal karma?

“We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.”

~ Alan Watts

“Individuality” is a natural construct for our subjective development. However, in light of a much broader awareness, we also come to understand that we cannot encapsulate and ascribe thoughts, words, or behaviors solely to one person. There are an infinite number of things which influence and dictate our consciousness beyond our awareness or control- our environment, genetic dispositions, unconscious conditioning, cultural programming, emotions, instinct, psychosomatic physiology, gut bacteria, spirit attachments, hyperdimensional manipulation, causality, quantum entanglement, and so much more! If you’re not entirely in control of yourself, then how can it be “your karma”? How can you be held ultimately accountable, condemned, or held indebted to circumstances beyond your awareness and control?

Of course, this isn’t to excuse and pardon all wrongdoing. Accountability is an important and necessary aspect of our reality. This is to simply provide a broader, more objective view of life beyond the limitations of anthropocentric categorizations.

“On the side of action, of the cosmic energies, it is seen that they move in masses, waves, currents constantly constituting and reconstituting beings and objects, movements and happenings, entering into them, passing through them, forming themselves in them, throwing themselves out from them on other beings and objects. Each natural individual is a receptacle of these cosmic forces and a dynamo for their propagation; there passes from each to each a constant stream of mental and vital energies, and these run too in cosmic waves and currents no less than the forces of physical Nature. ”

~ Sri Aurobindo

Just for a hilarious take on this issue, Comedian Bill Burr sheds some light on the absurdity of this belief:

“This might be the most arrogant thing I say all night but I actually resent the fact that I’m gonna get judged one day, like if that’s true. That somebody’s gonna judge me. That doesn’t even make any sense! Like, “Dude, you made me, so… this is YOUR fuck up. Alright? Let’s not try to turn this around on me. You know? Jesus Christ… You give me freedom of choice, you make whores, you have me suck at math, and you don’t think this thing’s gonna go off the rails? Like… YOU SET ME UP TO FAIL and now you’ve got the BALLS to now question your own goddamn work.”

Dude, if I made a car, if I built a car and it didn’t run, I wouldn’t like burn it forever: “YOU EVIL PIECE OF SHIT!”, and light it on fire… I wouldn’t. I would troubleshoot: “Is there gas in the engine? Is the battery charged?! Anything beyond this and I’ve got to get a REAL MAN to look at this! But I believe in you! I’ll try and help you out…”

~ Bill Burr

Of course the dynamics of “cause & effect” do exist in many ways; we can measure and predict them throughout various aspects of life. But an objective assessment of karma goes well beyond our extremely limited and biased capability to perceive “cause and effect”. We mustn’t overlook our tendency to project our limited categorizations and moral preferences as “spiritual truths” on to life, much less as “karmic absolutes”.

“The force of the temptation which urges us to seek for such evidence and appearances as are in favor of our desires, and to disregard those which oppose them, is wonderfully great. In this respect we are all, more or less, active promoters of error. In place of practicing wholesome self-abnegation, we ever make the wish the father to the thought: we receive as friendly that which agrees with, we resist with dislike that which opposes us; whereas the very reverse is required by every dictate of common sense.”

~ Michael Faraday

In light of life’s inequities, it’s natural to seek some semblance of justice or understanding in any way we can. The problem with most spiritual beliefs is that many of us – finding distaste with consensus reality – have just pieced together our own more pleasing version which is no more objectively accurate than the previously held belief. By doing this, we give our power away to lies and liars who make us feel good about our subjective preferences, who comfort us with promises of ascension, awakening, and “spiritual superiority” in one form or another.


There’s a peril in picking spiritual beliefs simply on the basis that they “resonate” and “feel good”. While it may provide some temporary personal benefit by providing a more empowering perspective on life, this is by no means an accurate metric of objective truth by which we should assess others. This is called “motivated reasoning”, whereby a person forms a confirmation bias towards that which reaffirms only what supports their subjective desires, interpretation of morality, and anthropocentric views. People seek out plausible explanations for complex phenomena in order to make things fit into their comfortably held belief systems. It is a form of “lying to the self“.

The fact is that nobody (not even well-established religious or governmental institutions) can absolutely tell you what’s objectively “good” and “bad”. Nor can they tell you how you should live your life in all conditions, and much less what fully happens after death and why.

IF NOT KARMA, THEN WHAT?

Ultimately, life holds all things, allows all things in existence, and supports the interplay of all things. The totality of existence is an unfathomably multidimensional nexus of interconnected, infinite being coalescing for a greater purpose far beyond our constructs of law, ethics, and morality.

What is this “greater purpose”? The best we understand from looking at the big picture is that life – with all its “good & bad” – is a dynamic equilibrium not always in alignment with our subjective preferences. Generally speaking, life favors evolution through creativity, courage, and connection. This is made evident by the fact that the most fundamental trend throughout all known history is the complexification and connection of both matter and consciousness. This evolution frequently relies on the friction of forces which can appear harsh and destructive, but is a developmental necessity. The predominant tendency of existence is to become increasingly connected through time; galaxies form, life sophisticates, and creativity blossoms exponentially. If destruction and entropy were the dominant forces at play, we wouldn’t see this constantly increasing growth, connection, and creativity. This fundamental constant is the best we can surmise as a “universal purpose”.

Within this greater purpose, each person has their own unique set of circumstances with different lessons to learn and experiences to co-create. There is no “karma”; there is only “what is”, a continuum of unfolding existence toward this purpose. All things therein aspire toward their own purpose with no blame, no damnation, and no superiority. All of life is a co-creating dynamic equilibrium of cosmic forces working through us, since we are all subjective transducers of an objective divine consciousness. Karma is no more than a quaint religious myth at best, because the totality of life orchestrates itself in ways beyond the mind’s ability to fully conceive, comprehend, moralize, or even put in to words.

The Matrix Control System and How to Transcend It

Have you noticed a tendency for people to close their minds to new information that challenges their established world view? Since it happens even to the best of us occasionally, I invite you to open your mind as we explore new and shocking aspects of reality. As you read, I’d like you to consider what’s beyond the limits of what you think you know, and expand the way you think the universe works. What you’re about to read is based on decades of expert research, “connecting the dots” of testimonials spanning over thousands of years, and my own personal experience as an abductee. I encourage you to look into these sources listed throughout, and at the bottom of this article, for yourself to come to your own understanding of the hyperdimensional matrix control system. 

WHAT IS THE HYPERDIMENSIONAL MATRIX CONTROL SYSTEM?

The hyperdimensional matrix control system (abbreviated as HMCS) is by far the most tremendously all-encompassing, yet elusive subject anyone can seek to understand. In the interests of condensing years of research in to a comprehensive overview, this will be a brief but thorough download of information with resources linked throughout to encourage further investigation into these subjects of crucial importance to humanity.

In short, the HMCS is a predatory system of manipulation perpetuated by various hostile paraphysical multidimensional beings used to enslave human consciousness in to a “frequency prison” for use as a bioenergetic food source. It operates upon our reality in ways beyond the currently understood limitations of physics, yet its manifestations appear all around and within us. This phenomenon has been occurring throughout all of known history, and indicates that humanity is not alone in the universe. More importantly, humanity is not at the top of the energetic food chain.

“There are a thousand things which prevent a man from awakening, which keep him in the power of his dreams. In order to act consciously with the intention of awakening, it is necessary to know the nature of the forces which keep man in a state of sleep. First of all it must be realized that the sleep in which man exists is not normal but hypnotic sleep. Man is hypnotized and this hypnotic state is continually maintained and strengthened in him. One would think that there are forces for whom it is useful and profitable to keep man in a hypnotic state and prevent him from seeing the truth and understanding his position.”

~ G. I. Gurdjieff

The implications of the HMCS unravel everything — all known laws of physical reality, all historical narratives, all sociopolitical and religious constructs, and even our identification with our own consciousness… This issue has remained relegated to the fringes of social attention precisely for its paradigm-shattering implications. As such, it has been deliberately shrouded in secrecy, except within unofficial branches of shadow government, secret societies, the research of UFOlogists, and the hundreds of thousands of “paranormal experiencers” who have consciously encountered the phenomenon first-hand…

and now, you….

 

HOW THE MATRIX WORKS

“Only the small secrets need to be protected. The big ones are kept secret by public incredulity.”

~ Marshall McLuhan

People do not understand that they are in prison. The hyperdimensional control system is so fundamental to the reality surrounding us that most people do not see it, nor do they in their “waking sleep” look for anything outside of it. People are fed comfortable lies daily and made to be complacent, materialistic, and short-sighted. For the most part people actually like their impoverished captivity, identify with it, and will even defend it to the death. An impartial look back throughout history demonstrates this conclusively.

It’s common knowledge that mind control and social engineering of behavior has been utilized by those in positions of power for thousands of years. Consider how easy it’s been for the church, the state, and corporations to brainwash and control people through numerous means. These institutions subconsciously appeal to base instincts and fears, and thereby manipulate through neurolinguistic programming, numerous methods of psychological triggering, cultural programming, electromagnetic frequencies from electronic devices, the drug-induced dumbing-down and emotional-numbing of society, and many other compounding methods…

These methods have been sufficient enough to control the general population. Now imagine how easy it is for a technologically superior, multidimensional intelligence to enforce an even greater system of control in even more subtle and subversive ways. The denizens of the hyperdimensional matrix control system are not just little grey beings in metal spaceships from another planet like Hollywood’s anthropocentric programming suggests. They are primarily hyperdimensional, trans-density beings of various kinds that have been here all along, beyond our perception, shaping history and evolution. Beyond mind-control, other means of control and monitoring are implemented, such as physical implants, energetic implants, and spirit attachments/ attacks. In extreme cases, demonic possession, hauntings, and astral attacks (often while sleeping/ “dreaming”) can occur.

The HMCS can work through us and those around us, influencing the consciousness og both humans and animals. On a personal level, it works through people to instigate distractions, threats, attacks, temptations, addictions, illness, and other forces which disrupt our wellbeing. By doing so, the HMCS harvests the energetic outpouring (or “loosh”, as it’s otherwise known) expelled from an imbalanced, unhealthy frenzy of intense suffering, fear, anxiety, anger, war, worship, and sexual pathologies- to name a few. This is often triggered through ideological constructs such as nationalism, authoritarianism, sexism, religious prejudice, racism, and compounded conditions of stress. The social mechanisms which induce these conditions can be seen throughout our lives- primarily government, media, religion, financial institutions, and corporations which are often run by psychopaths.

“There are beings in the spiritual realms for whom anxiety and fear emanating from human beings offer welcome food. When humans have no anxiety and fear, then these creatures starve. People not yet sufficiently convinced of this statement could understand it to be meant comparatively only. But for those who are familiar with this phenomenon, it is a reality. If fear and anxiety radiates from people and they break out in panic, then these creatures find welcome nutrition and they become more and more powerful. These beings are hostile towards humanity.

Everything that feeds on negative feelings, on anxiety, fear and superstition, despair or doubt, are in reality hostile forces in supersensible worlds, launching cruel attacks on human beings, while they are being fed. Therefore, it is above all necessary to begin with that the person who enters the spiritual world overcomes fear, feelings of helplessness, despair and anxiety. But these are exactly the feelings that belong to contemporary culture and materialism; because it estranges people from the spiritual world, it is especially suited to evoke hopelessness and fear of the unknown in people, thereby calling up the above mentioned hostile forces against them.”

~ Rudolf Steiner

Going deeper, we find large-scale multinational oligarchies, secret societies, and other elite cabals with converging interests of control. Even deeper still, evidence from numerous extraterrestrial abductee accounts, whistleblower testimonials, and other sources indicates that there seems to be human cooperation with extraterrestrials and demiurgic hyperdimensional forces in areas of shadow government and elite secret organizations, often operating undergound. Yet while forces collude to maintain control over humanity, all these human organizations still remain just puppets. They act as mere pieces on the board of a cosmic chess game played by unseen forces.

On a more metaphysical level, the matrix control system creates energetic flare-ups throughout humanity by inciting dynamics such as the UFO/ extraterrestrial abduction phenomenon, the influence of the solar system (known as astrology), astral/ psychic attacks, and dark occult magic. All these elements collude to keep humanity in control for the benefit of the HMCS.

Despite the mysterious, multifaceted nature of the HMCS, there are various sources of knowledge, both modern and ancient, which provide reference points for different aspects of this phenomenon. These sources have been found around the world since the dawn of history, calling the hyperdimensional matrix control system by many names:

“The General Law” – Esoteric Christianity
“The Archons” – Gnosticism
“The Lords of Destiny” – Hermeticism
“The Shaitans” – Sufism
“The Jinn” – Arabian mythology
“Wetiko” – Native American Spirituality
“The Predator/Fliers/ The topic of all topics” – Yaqui Indians, Castaneda
“Ikuya” – Brazilian Ipixuma tribe
“Mantindane/the Tormentors” – Zulu Tribe
“The Evil Magician” – Gurdjieff
“Occult Hostile Forces” – Sri Aurobindo & The Mother, The Integral Yoga
“Demons” – various religions

When you step back and connect the dots, you begin to see the big picture emerge. Scientist and researchers of UFOlogy & Exopolitics like David Icke, Michael Tsarion, Karla Turner, Richard Dolan, Laura Knight-Jadczyk, Whitley Strieber, Jacques Vallée, John Keel and others describe that this is a paraphysical phenomenon which transmogrifies in a way which adapts itself to the belief system and frame of consciousness of the people at the time in history. This correlates to ancient accounts of “chariots”, “gods”, and “dragons” in the sky. The hypnotic regression of numerous abductees indicate that false “screen memories” are implanted, covering up the victim’s recollection of the event with a more soothing “dream”. These implanted memories typically involve loved ones, celebrities, or even religious figures such as Jesus. Therefore, it’s important that we not take personal experiences at face value.

Obviously before we try to make our way through this hyperdimensional jungle, we first have to reiterate that this it is a mercurial and dangerous subject. It’s essential we not overestimate ourselves, and learn to discern attacks. The HMCS always seeks to get at you from your weak points. It will send interference, turmoil, drama, and temptations. You will be tested and it can have severe consequences such as a disruption of finances, unhealthy relationships (such as codependency, “White Knight” syndrome, or more extreme cases like an “Alien Love Bite or “Dark Side of Cupid”), unexpected pregnancy even when precautions are taken, psychic attacks, being caught up in perpetual drama, addiction, chronic triggering of unhealed psychological wounds, physical afflictions, and many other ways. Often times it starts as something very subtle, where a small diversion results in huge wastes of time and poor investments of energy over timeframes that can range over a week, months, and even years. Often these decisions are supported by a pathological society that wants you to focus on the wrong things, so “being successful” in society is not an accurate metric by which to measure a person’s spiritual health.

Despite the external technological and “intellectual” progress lauded by these prevailing institutions, the fact remains that inwardly, society is systematically suppressed to remain essentially the same as it has always been – violent, acquisitive, fearful, selfish, and subservient. Within this captivity, society is groomed to live similarly to livestock who feel free because they can eat well, have sex, play, and have the illusion of freedom within a seemingly peaceful yet violently maintained, narrow spectrum of existence. Having been in this state for centuries, most people have normalized the oppressive limitations imposed on them. Society is conditioned to love its captivity, constantly given “bread & circuses”, unaware that they are being fed and groomed as an energetic food source. “Success” in the conventional sense of the word is mostly a non-stop circus of 5-sensory material indulgence designed to keep us away from actualizing our fullest potential. 

However, if you’ve read this far, you probably have a deep soul-drive to not be constrained and fed off of. You likely have a spiritual immune system that senses something is very wrong, and rejects the status-quo simulacrum of reality where lies are believes to be truth, tyranny is seen as security, and pathological values are the norm. We need not remain under the hypnotic control of these forces. There are ways to become exempt from these forces. As for the influences which cannot be escaped, they can be transmuted to the soul’s benefit…

 

THE SOUL & HOW TO ESCAPE

To understand how to escape, we must first understand that not everyone is the same, and not everyone can escape. The degree to which one is affected by these hostile forces often depends on one’s level of soul-evolution. However, not everyone has a soul, or they may be a “soul-in-struggle” who has come under severe attack to fragment the soul.

Numerous esoteric sources indicate that while all beings have a “collective spirit energy” like plants and animals, a soul must be developed through the individuation of consciousness, forged in the crucible of self-work. There is a spectrum of soul-potential which one can be born with (as with the case of wanderers/ starseeds/ indigo children, etc.). However, due to the spiritual attrition of being in the matrix, the ability to remain aligned to one’s soul and not have it “eaten” by predatory forces largely comes from one’s capacity to engage in sincere, dedicated self-work, involving group work to help see yourself more objectively and heal.

The more we develop our embodied, anchored soul, the less room we have in our energy field for parasitic entities to find harbor and work through us, and the less the HMCS can control us. Without a soul, the body-mind is merely an avatar for these forces to manipulate. The most prone to manipulation and conformity to these forces are those without a soul known as “organic portals“, especially psychopaths/ sociopaths who lack the neurological capacity to process emotions.

For those with a soul, it’s crucial to know how to cultivate our latent potential and escape the HMCS. Due to the varying intensity of these challenges, it is incumbent to have a healthy psychological substrata. After all, how can a person expect to deal with hyperdimensional realities if they can’t maintain equilibrium within everyday reality? Many unprepared people who have experienced these forces firsthand (often through extraterrestrial abduction) end up living in fear, or have even committed suicide due to feeling helpless, confused, and being unable to cope with such an overwhelming disillusionment.

Thankfully, there are some protective steps to take in order to protect against extraterrestrial & hyperdimensional provocation and attack. This list is based off the aforementioned sources, the research of UFOlogist Dr. Karla Turner,  and many other modern researchers (referenced in the sources below):

Educate yourself about the phenomenon from various sources. Knowledge protects and ignorance endangers. The cultivation of knowledge requires consistent willpower, fosters discernment, and builds resourcefulness.

Learn to step out of yourself and observe your reactions to maintain perspective. Consistent self-observation and felt wholeness is the foundation of all conscious self-work. In its basic form, the practice involves being aware of one’s inner state, including body, emotions and thinking, while also paying attention to an external object or activity. Self-remembering can bring presence of consciousness into human activity which is usually unconsciously mechanical and simply happens. After a while, your dreams may become more lucid as well, allowing a new dimension of self-actualization to take place.

Let go of fear; it is often through fear that negative entities maintain control. In unsafe circumstances, mindful anger is a more effective defense than fear. However, it’s important to discern types of anger. Righteous anger is a conscious intensity which evokes personal willpower, focus, and empowerment in defense of personal violation. Ego-driven anger lack consciousness, is ofter scattered, and on the attack, which is what these forces want.

Maintain a good quality of life though holistic self-work. Take care of your physical body. Become embodied. Process and integrate your emotions. Develop your intelligence. Cultivate your creativity. Maintain your connection to nature and a healthy environment.

Be realistic about what can and cannot be done. Things like wishful thinking and worship of deities does not seem to have any positive effect. If anything, it has a negative effect since wishful thinking is essentially lazy thinking, and asking spiritual entities to “help” is a free will permission slip for all kinds of beings to enter your energy field.

Stay close to, and confide in, those also sincerely engaged in holistic self-work and those you can trust. Beneficial aspects are amplified in groups when those involved share the same aspirations and interests.

Check in with healers and specialists. Just as people visit a dentist for their teeth, or a mechanic for their car, so too does your physical body and spiritual being need regular care. This is especially true for people who are regularly in stressful situations which make them feel drained, or who just give a lot of themselves to others. You may want to consider modalities like: massage & bodywork (rolfing, acupuncture, chiropractic work, etc), energy work (reiki, polarity, clairvoyant energy clearing. etc.), spirit release therapy, gestalt therapy, group constellation work, and others. Remember that not all healers are safe, and that one should assess who the healer’s teachers are, as well as personal spiritual paradigms and affiliations.

Maintain “strategic enclosure” when necessary. It is at times beneficial for a person to seclude oneself, avoid “matrix influences”, and intensively focus one’s energy on personal development.

When it comes to exerting oneself against these forces, most well-meaning people in the process of awakening are “fighting the good fight”, but too often become stuck in a tunnel vision of 3D issues, such as politics, 3D survivalism, environmentalism, GMOs, chemtrails, psychopaths in power, religion, mainstream media, etc. While knowledge of these issues and conscious activism are important, they can be very limited when not seen within the context of the bigger picture. Getting stuck in these dead-end issues is what these hostile multidimensional beings want. We need to go beyond these issues in order to see how they intertwine and get to the root of these problems. More importantly, we need to examine our internal landscape and how we are culpable in creating the conditions from which the problems of the world arise.

At a certain point when people start to question their external reality they once identified with, they also start to question themselves, the system they participate in, and their personal relationships. This process is known as “disillusionment”, which often causes people to become depressed as the lies they’ve based their lives on begin to disintegrate. Underneath the emotions and the external drama, depression is often an indication that a person is disconnected from their soul, their true selves, the divine, and nature. As the corruption of our world becomes more evident, depression is skyrocketing as the pharmaceutical industry and the dark side of psychology tries to conform you to society (another distortion of the HMCS). But depression isn’t a sign that something is wrong with you; it’s a sign that you’re just overloaded/ under-nourished in a sick society.

“It’s no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

~Jiddu Krishnamurti

When confronting this difficulty aspect of reality, many people ask “Where are the GOOD aliens? Surely there must be some counter-force to fight these bad aliens. What about asking the ‘Galactic Federation of Light’ full of ‘angels’ and ‘ascended masters’ to fight the evil cabal, help raise our collective frequency, and bring about the Golden Age?

While there are benevolent forces, they’re not what most religious and New Age beliefs peddle them as being. Part of the predatory HMCS agenda works through infusing false beliefs which persuade easily influenced seekers to vaguely invite “angels”, “ascended masters”, and “spirit guides” in to their bodies and/or lives. This is a trap of agreement allowing any deceitful astral beings or discarnate spirits to hook in to one’s energy field. We must keep in mind that, just as with people, many negative entities appear as positive ones in order to infiltrate, monitor, and disrupt.

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious”

~ Carl Jung

Positive hyperdimensional forces do exist, but they’re not “saviors” or like the “Fairy Godmother” in children’s stories that are going to do the work for us. True love respects free will and does not invasively manipulate others. They typically help move you faster along the path, and, at most, facilitate auspicious “miracles”. Positive forces work in subtle ways, such as synchronicities, bringing the right books and videos your way, the right people, the right opportunities, and other such guides to help when you ask sincerely and are ready to put forth the necessary efforts. Ultimately, we are the ones we have been waiting for and we must do the work.

We are awakening conduits of consciousness, and through our struggles with hostile forces, we become more resilient, aware, and capable. Through self-work, you no longer remain a frequency match for the entities that once diverted and consumed your energy. Parasites need a certain environment to sustain themselves. When you improve the condition of your being, you cut off their food supply, and spirit attachments which once exacerbated unhealthy circumstances can no longer sustain themselves.

“Looking at all that is and has been happening in human history – the eye of the Yogin sees not only the outward events and persons and causes, but the enormous forces which precipitate them into action. If the men who fought were instruments in the hands of rulers and financiers, these in turn were mere puppets in the clutch of those [hidden/hyperdimensional] forces. When one is habituated to see the things behind, one is no longer prone to be touched by the outward aspects – or to expect any remedy from political, institutional or social changes. The only way out is through the descent of an [embodied] consciousness which is not the puppet of these forces but is greater than they are.”

~ Sri Aurobindo

While these hostile forces are not necessarily benevolent to humanity, it would be lacking in perspective to simply label it as “evil”. Is humanity “evil” for using plants and animals as a food source? As above, so below.

Just as humanity has implemented systems of control on nature for its own development and evolution, the hyperdimensional matrix control system serves its necessary function, objectively speaking. To understand this better, the Sufi mystic G.I. Gurdjieff compared the circumstance of each person as being analogous to that of a cell in the human body. Each cell (person) is part of an organ (society), which collectively comprises the body (the world). The matrix control system can be thought of as the laws of physics that hold it all together, but also cause it to age, get sick, etc. If a few cells were to leave the body, the general function of the body will recover and remain unaffected. However, if all the cells were to suddenly leave, the body would cease to be. In the greater cosmic scope, the HMCS assures proper accomplishment of certain necessary functions within the organism, even as life feeds on life.

“The advantage of the separate individual is that he is very small and that, in the economy of nature, it makes no difference whether there is one mechanical man more or less. We can easily understand this correlation of magnitudes if we imagine the correlation between a microscopic cell and our own body. The presence or absence of one cell will change nothing in the life of the body. We cannot be conscious of it, and it can have no influence on the life and functions of the organism. In exactly the same way a separate individual is too small to influence the life of the cosmic organism to which he stands in the same relation (with regard to size) as a cell stands to our own organism. And this is precisely what makes his ‘evolution’ possible; on this are based his ‘possibilities.'”

~ G.I. Gurdjieff, ‘In Search of the Miraculous’

From the big picture perspective, “negative” entities are a necessary part of what is. Our distinctions between what’s “good vs. bad” are entirely subjective, but also necessary. These kind of categorical divisions by which we formulate distinctions – good or bad, young or old, masculine or feminine, poor or wealthy, gay or straight, living or dead – are all prerequisite adjuncts in our process of understanding, but they are not the end of understanding. In order to see this topic objectively, we must allow ourselves to see life from multiple perspectives simultaneously. Hostile forces are at times necessary to create friction within this “life-school”. They are all a manifestation of what is and therefore has a right to be for the purposes of the soul evolution. And soul-evolution is what we need to transcend the HMCS.

On that note, perspective is important in remaining empowered. From the bigger picture, these “attacks” we must overcome are spiritual initiations. They compel us to improve our conditions. Where inspiration fails to sufficiently motivate us, we’re forced to learn, discern, get clear, heal, get grounded, become more embodied, own our space, and become more self-actualized. As we make a shift closer to our aligned path in life, we begin to stand in our sovereignty while simultaneously becoming ever more deeply connected to the world around us. Spiritually and esoterically speaking, this process raises our frequency through integration and understanding which thereby opens the door to ever greater forms of connection and love. This is how we transcend the Matrix. This is the meaning of the alchemical process of transmutation symbolized by “turning lead in to gold”, or possessing “the Philosopher’s Stone” which can become all things, or finding the Holy Grail which renews life and heals all wounds.

This process of awakening isn’t always a comfortable journey, and oftentimes it may not align with what we consider to be fair. Yet there is a greater divine purpose and wisdom unfolding in which we all play our part. Ultimately, the universe aspires towards greater consciousness, and grants providence to those sincerely aligned to this purpose. We must give in to despair. Despite the pain, sadness, and horrors the world has endured in its darkest times, it is precisely because we have witnessed and endured them that we are capable of carrying the knowledge, courage, and love necessary for creating a better world. We are multidimensional transducers of divine consciousness co-creating better tomorrows. This more than a hope- it’s our destiny.

If any of this seems “far out there” or challenges any of your own assumptions, I invite you to do your own research with the links provided below in the description. These are very deep, far reaching topics which can be explored in many ways. The process of understanding and self-actualization is a uniquely individual process for each person. While these are general concepts and practices we can all relate to, nobody can tell you EXACTLY what you “should” do. We all have to walk our own path. These are just some suggestions to empower you on your journey.

Exposing Zionism and Israel: A Definitive Guide

This is an in-depth and comprehensive overview for people who care enough to learn the truth about the Palestinian/ Israeli conflict, Zionism, and the hidden forces that created it. If there is ever to be peace and justice in Israel and Palestine, the truth must be known. Like a “well-meaning” band aid on a bullet wound, concessions will not suffice. After decades of war, only a thorough understanding of the underlying, hidden facts will create a solid foundation for any lasting healing and peace to be made.

This may be controversial, but we’ve reached a dangerous point of critical mass where we need to start facing the facts about our collective actions instead of “politely” running away from them. This issue affects us all in many ways which we’ll discuss. But because it’s a sensitive subject for some people, let’s rip the band-aid off quickly and get right to the core of the issue – ZIONISM.

First off, we need to make a clear distinction between “Jews” and Zionists”. They are very different. Judaism is a religion. Zionism is a nationalistic movement that demands the return of the Jewish people to “their” “homeland” to establish Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel based on a fictionalized Bronze-Age religious superstition. Not all Jews are Zionists and not all Zionists are religious Jews. In fact, many Jews in Israel disagree with Zionist Religious Nationalism. They see how Zionism differs in both principle and practice from the fundamental Jewish faith, and has been used by wealthy elites as an emotionally-driven tool of brainwashing and infiltration that manipulates Jewish people to usurp sociopolitical control.

anti-zionist-jews-in-london zion
“Zionists” are a group of people that believe Jews must be in control of the historical land of Israel, and are willing to use unlimited violence, theft, and subversion to achieve this goal. This is not an opinion – this is a restatement of many Zionist figureheads’ own words.

“We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.”
~Yisrael Koenig, The Koenig Memorandum.

 

“We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, What is to be done with the Palestinian population?’ Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said ‘Drive them out!'”
~ Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.

 

“We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai.”
~ David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

Some religious people may cling to the Zionist notion of “the chosen people” and their “god-given right to the holy land” that is based on a completely absurd Bronze-Age religious superstition with no scientifically factual legitimacy.  In a sane, rational world, your beliefs don’t entitle you with magical “god given rights” to take away the inherent rights of others.

For example: the following clip refers to the lunacy of religious fanatics condemning gays because of what it says in the Bible. But it can also be applied to the lunacy of Zionism condemning everyone who doesn’t completely agree with them, their twisted interpretations of old scripture, and their demand for Religious Nationalism.

Check it out.

Honestly, if simple logic and reason were enough to resolve the situation, we could stop the article here and begin the conscious evolution of the human species.

But religion, including the religion of the State (of which Zionism comprises both), isn’t based on logic and reason. Religious and statist brainwashing is based on emotional “justification”, social pressures, and fear-based indoctrination. So, in case you happen to be someone who needs an avalanche of facts and statistics to show you the horrific illegitimacy of Zionism, along with how people around the world, Jews and non-Jews, are being manipulated towards global destruction by Zionism, let’s continue.

The imaginary religious rhetoric used as the justification of Israel’s establishment says, ‘Semites are God’s chosen people with a right to their holy land’. Even if you believe this megalomaniacal, borderline insane declaration, most Israelis (estimates suggest between 70-85%) aren’t actual Semites! They are converted Ashkenazi Jews from Europe that immigrated to Palestine after World War II. Ironically, the TRUE Semites are the Palestinians, having descended from the Semitic tribes in the Middle East! It’s sadly hypocritical that Israel’s apartheid genocide of Palestine over the past 70+ years is the most horrific “Anti-Semitic” oppression in the world.

Since we’ve clarified the “Semitic” issue, in regards to the “Anti-Semitic” claim, we can see that it too quickly falls apart with no legitimacy. Even former Israeli Minister Shulamit Aloni admits that “calling people ‘Anti-Semitic’ is a trick. We always use it.” It’s a manufactured form of cultural shaming based on lies. It’s part of a desperate attempt to shut down dissent, critical thinking, and inquiry, since obviously using facts, logic, and reason doesn’t work so well in support of Zionism.

So now that we’ve deconstructed the fundamental justifications of Zionism, let’s address Israel’s purported “right to self-defense”. Israel’s main opponent is Hamas, and there has been years of horrific fighting with both parties carrying responsibility. However, did you know that Israel (and the US, by proxy) created Hamas? For those unaware, the Israeli Mossad (their CIA) created Hamas in 1987, with the frontmen Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi. Why? Because, as Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, says: “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).”

Divide and conquer: the oldest military tactic in the book.

Well, isn’t that interesting?

This is the same story for the creation of Al Quaeda/ ISIS by the USA in the endless, hypocritical “War on Terror”. Since war is profitable, the psychopaths in power “solve their problems” by making an even bigger problem, then use the state-controlled mainstream media cover up their responsibility by spinning the situation to play the victim card when things get out of hand. This is the same behavior seen in psychopaths. Psychopaths covertly and purposefully create their own problems, using guilt, gaslighting, and divisive rhetoric to act like the victims, doing exactly what they demonize others of doing (like using children as human shields), pandering to their allies while simultaneously manipulating them, inflaming the drama to generate more power, all while continuously lying and feeding off the energy of others.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was even caught on film admitting all of this!

It doesn’t get much more blatant than that.

In the same way, Israel has continued to lie, manipulate, murder, and drain resources from other countries with impunity, despite breaking international law, arms laws, and unjustly murdering tens of thousands of innocent civilians in Palestine and other countries which creates even more civil unrest and backlash. It’s all part of the Machiavellian plan to maintain power, and Zionist sympathizers have fallen for it, hook, line, and sinker.

Bottom line: when you are illegally occupying territories that are not yours based on fictional beliefs, contrary to consensus of international law, purposefully arming other religious extremists to create bigger problems, you have no inherent moral superiority deserving of defense or “rights” over that land. PERIOD. Don’t agree? Let’s say I broke in to your house declaring, “One of my ancestors wrote in a book a long time ago saying this is my land forever because I believe something different than you, so I’m taking everything you own and putting you in a concentration camp. And If you fight back, I have the right to kill you.” Would you allow it to happen and say, “Well, he has a right to self-defense because of his religious superstition”, or would you consider me a criminal who’s mentally delusional? Obviously, it would be criminally insane! So why would any person with a conscience and an ounce of sanity allow it to happen to Palestine?

In this way, we can compare Zionism to the American settlers’ apartheid genocide of Native Americans under the fictional, religious ideology of “Manifest Destiny”. Same as always, those with more power demonize those that resist with propaganda, calling them “terrorists”“savages”, “lesser”,  “insurgents”, and “a threat to civilization”.

57845621

Just like America’s excuse of their oppression and expulsion from England to “seek their own land”, Zionism also uses a fictional, wildly exaggerated narrative of the Holocaust as the justification for turning Palestine in to an apartheid concentration camp. And just like America ignores the underhanded, subversive details of its history, Zionism also conveniently leaves out much of its history which causes the conflicts it pretends to be the victim of. For example, Zionists ignore being responsible for the economic collapse and cultural exploitation of Germany in the early 20th century. And when they were removed from their positions of power, unable to usurp off Germany unto its demise, International Zionists used the Jewish people as a scapegoat for declaring war on Germany pre-World War 2.

They say “Truth Fears No Investigation”, yet the Holocaust continues to be ILLEGAL to simply question in many countries. This is one of the many mechanisms of mind control we see to maintain social ignorance so Zionists can continue their endless predation of entire countries.  I guess the Zionist declaration “Never Again!” doesn’t apply when you are the one committing the genocidal atrocities. How convenient… for the psychopaths behind it all.

13023226_10153922551985432_1284239677_n

With these psychopathic commonalities, is it any surprise that America is Israel’s biggest supporter– politically, industrially, militarily, and financially? Even while America’s infrastructure crumbles, it has increasingly given hundred of billions of dollars to Israel, at $3 billion per year and rising (not including loan guarantees, massive weapon stockpiles, military and private development contracts, and more). If a government’s loyalties are supposedly to the betterment of its people first and foremost, above all, then why would the US government sacrifice the well-being of its own people to support a foreign country? It’s more than just strategic positioning to spread control in the Middle East. The reason why is because, just like in pre-WW2 Germany, behind the scenes, key elements in government, banking, industry, and media have been hijacked by Zionists who are beholden to the elite private interests that put them in positions of power over the interests of the people. History repeats itself when people don’t learn the lessons.

Speaking of “history repeats itself”, we’ll come back to discussing who’s behind the scenes after a quick historical segue to better understand how and why the situation came to be.

In my discussions with Israeli supporters, people try to justify the occupation by claiming, “The region is better now with Israel there because before Israel came along, nobody was really in Palestine. It was full of violent, uncivilized people oppressing women and cutting peoples’ head off.” This too is incorrect, and desperately in need of some education. Here’s a quick history lesson to set the record straight, so get ready for rapid fire facts.

From 1517-1917 Turkey’s Ottoman Empire stretched across what is presently known as Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and Israel. During World War I (1914-1918), Turkey supported Germany. When Germany was defeated, so were the Turks. Prior to this in 1916, as the region was being taken over by the Allied forces, control of the southern portion of the Ottoman Empire was “mandated” to France and Britain under the Sykes-Picot Agreement supervised by the League of Nations, which divided the Arab region into zones of influence. This was not meant to permanently retain control, since the region had been under Middle Eastern control since the 16th century. Instead, it was intended as a temporary measure to facilitate the transition “until such time as they [the native communities] are able to stand alone“, as was stated in The Covenant of the League of Nations. In other words, “Don’t try and manipulate the region for control. Just keep the peace and let people govern themselves”. This was considered a very reasonable agreement to everyone involved at the time (except the Turks and the Axis powers in the war, obviously). Lebanon and Syria were assigned (mandated) to France, and “Mandatory Palestine(today’s Jordan, Israel, and Palestine) was mandated in trust to Great Britain.

palestine-under-british-mandate

To the well-established native Arab population who lived in Palestine, it was their homeland. Return of their native rights had been promised to them both implicitly in The Covenant of the League of Nations which was the charter for the League of Nations through which they formed an agreement with local communities, but also by the Allies in the McMahon Agreement (1915) for their help in defeating the Turks in World War 1. However, soon after in 1917 this would be betrayed by the Balfour Declaration, wherein the British would also promise Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild and his Zionist counterparts the establishment of a Jewish state in exchange for financial, industrial, and political support to win WW1 (and gain support for all future conflicts, obviously). This betrayal and introduction of privatized ultra-wealthy elitist Zionist sociopolitical control is the pivotal demise in the history of the region. It also ties in to the imposed injustice in Treaty of Versailles after World War 1, the socioeconomic destruction of Germany between the two wars, and the hidden history of World War 2, all of which was instigated and manipulated by Zionist interests to their benefit for the creation of Israel.

But from these facts, we can see that before Israel, Palestine was a relatively modern, well-established area with a diverse, thriving culture under Turkish/ tentative British rule and influence. Now it’s well known as the largest concentration camp in the world. For anyone who wants further proof that Palestine was a legitimate region with a cohesive national community which was destroyed by Zionist interests, having existed well before the illegitimate creation of Israel, there are several authenticated photographs which document that period in history. Even more, here is a minted coin from 1927 worth 10 Mils (this currency is obviously no longer used).

11059922_10153363839170432_6773454503185157303_n-500x500

Note that the word “Palestine” is written in both Arabic and Hebrew indicating not only a Jewish presence, but a prominent one! Jews and Arabs DID live side by side in peace. The modern idea that they cannot coexist is an absolute fallacy, purposefully manufactured by the same wealthy Zionist interests who wanted to destabilize the region for their own power.

There are a dizzying number of crimes and offenses by Zionists that we could further address. The unprovoked attack of the USS Liberty by Israel, complete US political control by AIPAC, the suspicious assassination of Yitzhak Rabin (referred to as Israel’s JFK trying to make peace with Palestine) by a proud Zionist, the Golan Heights development and other continuing land grabs, the horrific human-rights-violations towards the Palestinians, the myth of the Iron Dome defense, MOSSAD’s involvement in the 9-11 attacks, and much more. But each one is deserving of an article (if not a book) by itself. This is simply an overview. If you want to go deeper, please check out the links provided and do your own research.

But since we’ve laid the groundwork, it seems appropriate for a foremost researcher on the subject, David Icke, to elaborate and tie together the history of Zionism & Israel, he hidden controllers behind it all, and the specific puppets in power we see at work today.

So there it is.

Looking throughout history, this is nothing new. From Egypt, to the Dark Ages, to the Vatican, religion and politics have been “partners in crime” since their inception, creating conflict for the benefit of a few psychopaths in power, outside the public eye, at the expense of everything else. Until people realize the Zionist Story and learn who is behind these manipulations, history will continue to repeat itself. Mere concessions and appeasement will not suffice. Considering the state of the world and the consequences of our collective ignorance, we desperately need truth, love, and justice, and we need it fast.

Religion, politics, society are exploiting you, and you are being conditioned by them; you are being forced in a particular direction. You are not human beings; you are mere cogs in a machine. You suffer patiently, submitting to the cruelties of environment, when you, individually, have the possibilities of changing them.”

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

The Art of Holding Space

EMotional processing

The world can be a demanding and difficult place, and we all need someone to help us through our dark times by holding space for us to process our emotions. You don’t need to be a therapist or a genius to hold space. Holding space is something we can all do for each other, wither it’s with our partners, our children, our friends, our pets, our neighbors, and even strangers in passing. We all need it, yet relatively few of us actually know how to do it well. So let’s explore the art of holding space.

When it comes to truly supporting people in their own growth and emotional processing, we know it’s harmful to take their personal power away. Yet regardless, we still tend to unconsciously do this is several ways: by trying to fix their problems for them, shaming them by implying that they should know more than they do, or overwhelming them by giving them more information than they’re ready for. While we may think it comes from a well-meaning place of wanting to help others, true personal growth happens best when people are given free space to process their emotions, feel supported, and are empowered to make their own choices. Feedback is fine in the form of giving gentle guidance when it’s needed and sincerely asked for, as long as it’s done lovingly so they feel safe even when they make mistakes.

It’s important to feel emotionally supported even if we are unsure and make mistakes because otherwise we feel “not good enough”, unworthy, unwanted, unloved, and even abandoned. The consequences of this can have severe repercussions. It can trigger a deeply-rooted survival response driven by fear of abandonment causing us to depend on lying, manipulation, and deception in order to maintain the approval of those we look to for emotional support. It’s the same reason why children lie to their parents so they aren’t yelled at and punished.

Socially speaking, because most people aren’t made to feel emotionally safe in their community, family, or in valuing and trusting themselves, they are conditioned to trust and rely on “authority” instead, often in the form of government. We can see the consequences of this deficiency of love around the world- authoritarianism, war, anger, hate, divisiveness, greed, exploitation, disconnection from nature, etc. The list goes on and illustrates the importance of holding space. Simply put, holding space is necessary to overcome all these unhealthy, destructive behaviors, personally and globally.

When it’s time to hold space (as opposed to strictly venting or problem solving), and both people have agreed to it, it’s important to be mindful about HOW we hold space. Here are the lessons I’ve learned about holding space:

1.) Drop your ego, buddy: This is a biggie. All of us fall in to this trap. We all have a natural tendency to want to “fix” people by pointing out their blindspots, telling them how to fix a problem, or judging their circumstances with the standards we hold for ourselves. Remember that what’s important is supporting the other person and just being there for them, not taking on their problems or trying to “fix” them. The more space your ego takes up, the less room it leaves for them, and the whole point is to create and hold as much space for the other person as possible.

Also, don’t take their emotional outpouring personally. When we get caught up in someone else’s drama (which is a result of not giving YOURSELF enough space),we can feel like whatever emotions they happen to be expressing are about us and our ability to hold space, instead of them just venting in their process. We can feel like their success is dependent on us and their failure to quickly move through their difficulties will be our fault. It’s not about you. Getting your ego out of the way will open the door for sincere vulnerability, authentic communication, and a feeling of safety for emotional processing.

2.) Create a space that feels safe enough to make mistakes: Nobody’s “perfect”. Mistakes will be made along the way while processing through sadness, fear, grief, etc. Even after processing, integrating these changed parts in to our daily lives isn’t always a clean and easy process. By dropping judgement and shame, we offer them the space to find courage, take risks, and find their inner resilience even in the face of adversity.

“Failure” is simply “things not going according to plan”, which is a part of the journey guided by greater forces than we can comprehend. Often times it’s beyond our control, but it’s not the end of the world. By allowing them the sacred space to “live and learn”, they’ll spend less time beating themselves up and more time lovingly learning from their mistakes, which is what it’s all about.

3.) Don’t take the person’s power away: Taking the decision-making out of a person’s hands does little, if anything, to help them grow. With rare exceptions, like interventions for addiction and abuse, it’s best to nurture people’s autonomy by encouraging them to make their own choices (even children).

Ask questions to understand where the other person is coming from, instead of trying to forcefully direct or control. By asking questions, we open a safe space for exploration, expression, and connection. Injecting our ideas about what the other person “should” do (no matter how well-meaning you may think it is) often makes others feel subjugated, stupid, and may not be what’s right for them even if it was right for you.

4.) Give people permission to trust their inner wisdom and intuition: Have you ever looked back in retrospect and thought, “I had a feeling about it, but I just didn’t listen to it”? We all have an internal guidance system, but we ignore it when we get “stuck in our heads” and feel pressured. We’re often best able to tune in to this natural navigation when we’re relaxed, embodied, and feel supported.

To open this inner knowledge from the fullness of our being, its’s good to take time to breathe deeply from the belly/ pelvic bowl and feel all the sensations arising within our entire body from the emotions. Give your full attention to it. Allow the feelings to have a voice if they want, and an expression through the body, even if it seems “silly” or “weird”. The intellect may come in trying to analyze it, but simply allow yourself to just BE without thinking. You’re safe to allow anything to come out. These deeply suppressed feelings may express themselves as moans, noises, twitching or contorting motions, or simply crying and melting. Much inner wisdom and intuition is non-verbal, and simply a feeling.

Trust your feelings to express themselves, even if they don’t “make sense”. Our inner garden grows much better with trust and support, rather than doubt and criticism. The more we allow ourselves to access and allow the fullness of our being, the better and more integrated our wisdom and intuition will become.

5.) Give people only as much feedback as they can handle: Whether information or emotional intensity, be mindful not to overwhelm others with more than they can process in their tender, vulnerable time. Too much emotional intensity can be distracting and take people out of their internal presence, or make people feel unsafe, even if the words are kind. Too much information can disconnect us from being with our emotions and processing. Even worse, it can make us feel incompetent, inferior, and unworthy.

6.) Provide support with discernment, mindfulness, and humility: People in distress can get desperate. They may think it’s better for you to provide them with answers, when it’s actually better that they learn to look within themselves. Using your own discernment will allow you to give only as much is as needed when it is truly and sincerely asked for and necessary. The balance between giving and withholding is a part of the dance when holding space and can be as subtle as prefacing suggestions with “In my opinion…” instead of “You should…” when giving guidance. Offering the right kind of support and feedback takes humility and practice, but it makes all the difference in the world.

7.) Provide a container for intense, complex emotions: Victims of abuse (which we all are to varying degrees) have intense, often conflicting emotions. This can be extremely challenging if we haven’t done the necessary self-work of digging in to our psyche’s shadow and become familiar with the darkest, most intimate parts of the healing process. Deeply suppressed and confusing emotions may arise when people are suddenly held in ways they aren’t used to. It’s important that we not meet it with shame and judgement, but strength and compassion. By meeting them with tenderness and confidence, you provide them with trust and assuredness in their own process, as well as yourself.

8.) Support different decisions and experiences than what you would prefer: When it comes to holding space, honoring our differences of ideology, culture, expression, and experience is necessary. We have to release control and judgement of what we think “should happen” or “is best”. Looking back on life, we can see how some of our choices, while perhaps “stupid”, “weird”, or “irresponsible” in retrospect, have led to consequences which place us exactly where they need to be. Sometimes the only way out is through, and in order for them to truly understand the lesson they need to have experiences unique to their own path in order to step in to the fullness of their being and true purpose.

Holding space is not an art that we can suddenly master by just reading, nor can it be completely summarized by any list. It’s a uniquely idiosyncratic experience depending on the people, place, and circumstance, with endless subtleties, techniques, and levels which evolve the more we practice it. And the more we practice it with others, the more we can give it to ourselves, heal, and grow even faster, together.

Moral Veganism Makes No Sense

Thumbnail

Dear Moral Vegans,

First off, just to clarify- I have nothing against Vegans or the Vegan Diet. This is simply about the MORALIZING that is often used to convey Veganism as somehow “morally and ethically superior”. I’ve been a vegan, I have vegan friends, and this has nothing to do with Veganism, per se.

We clear? Great.

Now, for those who DO moralize others on the basis of their diet, I know you mean well, but if you’re reading this right now, regardless of your particular dietary choice, you have blood on your hands just the same as meat eaters. Why? You are on the computer which means you are willfully participating in an unsustainable industrial civilization that fundamentally depends on the constant brutal invasion, destabilization, usurpation, and destruction of entire ecosystems to maintain your privileged standard of living. The amount of destruction, suffering, and death this constantly causes to ALL forms of life which is required to maintain your comfortable lifestyle is far more horrific than any meat-eating diet is responsible for.

I’m not saying the Veganism is “bad“, especially if you do it for physiological reasons. If your body just functions better without meat- great. More power to you. I’m specifically just talking about vegans who generalize ALL meat eating as “bad”, regardless of the context (humanely pasture raised vs. industrial slaughterhouse), and only eating plants as “good”, regardless of context (permaculture vs. industrial agriculture), and then go on to demonize meat eaters while still participating in a horrible unsustainable industrial civilization as if they’re somehow morally superior. They’re not.

If you’re like the vast majority of people, you rely on industrial agriculture because you’re not growing your own food in a sustainable permaculture garden, right? Well, industrial agriculture kills MILLIONS of mice, rats, rabbits, gophers, squirrels, birds, as well as fish, frogs, and all the inhabitants of entire ecosystems that are turned in to “dead zones” when the runoff of pesticides and fertilizer meet the water supply. Knowing this, how can any reasonable person only demonize meat-eaters for being “inhumane”?

deadzones

This is just one aspect of industrial civilization. Think of all the horrible byproducts of industrial civilization: oil spills, fracking, deforestation, pollution, Paris Hilton, strip mining, radioactive disasters, systemic poverty, and the endless wars fought over resources and lies to fuel your privileged, often superfluous, indulgent lifestyle (to name a few). You’re going to contribute to all that, yet criticize meat eaters?

Most “moral vegans” conveniently ignore this fact about their society because living consistently with their “righteous” beliefs means letting go of several things: their brainwashed identification towards government, almost every modern convenience in their lives, their hopes and dreams which depend on the continuation of this all-consuming paradigm, and starting their lives all over in a way that’s truly conscientious of mitigating the suffering of any form of life on the planet.

But they’re just not willing to do that. It’s easier to just shop in a different supermarket aisle and hypocritically shame others on Facebook. When rubber hits the road for moral vegans (bad industrial puns, anyone?), morality is selectively ignored, trading convictions for convenience while cherry-picking an over-generalized non-issue which allows them to feel some semblance of moral righteousness.

It makes no sense.

Just to reiterate- Veganism, per se, works well for a lot of people and is a valid dietary choice. The problem addressed here is the moralizing condemnation double standard based on dietary over-generalizations without deeper context which is unnecessarily dividing people, wasting energy on myopic non-arguments, and distracting people from discussing more important issues. Hopefully this has helped put things in perspective so we can move beyond that boundary. Let’s please stop the dietary demonization and focus on what really matters in the bigger picture. There are way more important issues that need to take priority in the focus of our concern!

Ultimately, the only consistent “moral righteousness” to be found when it comes to your dietary choices is, A.) if your food is produced locally, humanely, and sustainably, and B.) if you’re dedicating your life to constantly healing, self-educating, and contributing back to the world with the energy you consume in order to improve the world by helping to educate and uplift others in evolving beyond the current obsolete destructive paradigm.

That’s basically what it all comes down to.

However, there’s more to the topic which is explored in the video below. Please watch it, as this article is simply an introduction.

Just some food for thought… 😉

Think Humanity is F*CKED? 5 Facts to Make You an Optimist!

1337635784046

Considering the destructive and unconscious actions of many people around the world, it can be easy to fall in to despair. But I always remind myself of the following facts when I get upset and it always fills me up with an infallible optimism, conviction, love, and purpose. I hope it brings you light when things seem dark and uplifts your spirits when the world gets heavy:

1.) We can’t judge the conscious evolution of humanity based on the stagnancy of those who aren’t interested in consciously evolving. These “basic” kinds of people have always existed relative to more conscious, educated, and multifaceted people, and there has always been more of them. Evolution by its very definition means the new development, diversity, and complexity of an existing system, so therefore conscious evolution is always going to be determined by a relatively marginalized minority, as it always has.

So don’t let let fewer numbers be disheartening because…

2.) Evolution is not a democracy; it is an inevitability. Even if those whose calling is to be an evolutionary force in the world are outnumbered, the very nature of evolutionary creativity and transcendence is more powerful and influential than destruction and entropy, as we can see reflected throughout the universe since the universe is expanding, creating, and connecting far more than it is being destroyed. Life, specifically consciousness, is not without purpose. This is evident by the fact that the constant trend throughout all known history is the complexification of matter and consciousness, all becoming increasingly connected through time – galaxies form, life communicates, and it continues to evolve. Humanity is just a more complex expression of that inevitable trend which shows no signs of stopping. If destruction and entropy were the dominant forces at play, we wouldn’t see this constant growth and improvement. Yet here we are.

3.) Evolution is exponential. Every major milestone in evolution has come about more quickly than the period which preceded it. Compared to the previous 32,000+ years of human history, consciousness has exponentially skyrocketed in the just past few decades. If we extrapolate that acceleration of creativity, communication, and awareness over the next 50 years, we realize that there’s no predicting what providence the future holds. Given the relatively recent explosion of communication and technology, our understanding of the global situation has only really come to the forefront of social consideration in the past few years. Moreover, awareness of the importance of conscious personal growth, independent media, and redefining social relationships is expanding faster than ever before in history.

4.) It helps to consider this period of history as humanity undergoing a birth of consciousness. In every birth, there is destruction and disarray, whether it be the breaking of the egg shell, or the eruption of a baby from the vessel of gestation. There is blood, pain, and a radical stretching beyond our comfort zone, at times to the brink of death. But this is how new life has ALWAYS come in to existence. The shell breaks, the placenta is shed, and the Earth is transformed to facilitate the new consciousness emerging. This is all part of the birthing process, but the global birth of consciousness is greater and more intense than anything we’ve ever experienced before. The omni-present force of universal creation has led us this far, and, as we’ve shown, it’s not without purpose.

5.) Pain is a part of life; it can be very useful and even necessary. Basically, people learn through pain and inspiration. While an increasing amount of people who recognize the urgent need for transformation are awakening more so through inspiration, others who cling to the old ways will subsequently and necessarily experience more pain until they realize the necessity for drastic change. As these people are the majority on Earth, much like a drug addict who does not want help, it’s clear that things have to get worse before they can get better. All we can do is transform ourselves to become an ever-better living embodiment of the principles we uphold to be a beacon for the transformation of others. When we allow ourselves to shine, we will attract others who are true friends with whom we can share our journey, which helps to overcome any pain. And when catastrophe happens, after mourning and consolation, consider the bigger picture and remember that humanity is just one step closer to lasting positive transformation.

So, there it is.

Life isn’t always a comfortable journey, and oftentimes it may not align with what we consider to be fair. Yet there is a greater purpose and wisdom unfolding in which we all play our part. We have a choice as to what we contribute to the world as our legacy and we must not despair. Despite the pain, sadness, and horrors the world has endured in its darkest times, it is precisely because we have witnessed and endured them that we are capable of carrying the knowledge, courage, and love necessary for creating a better world. We are the universal transducers of consciousness creating better tomorrows, and it’s more than a hope- it’s our destiny.
