Noise

Probably the most frightening words the fledgling truth seeker can ever encounter on his or her journey to consciousness is controlled opposition. Just when you think you’re on your way to uncovering the secrets of reality, the world, and the universe, sooner or later, if you surf the ether long enough, and especially if you, in your narcissism, invite enough people on your Facebook page, you’re going to run into people who will, if you let them, lead you to believe that nothing is real, not even the truth. This person or that is really an Israeli agent; this group or that is really a New World Order front. There’s not a person or group out there, from Alex Jones to David Icke to Peter Joseph (Zeitgeist) who hasn’t been so accused.

Sooner or later one has to silence the noise of doubt and realize that we are intelligent human beings, and are capable of deciphering the overwhelming amount of new information we encounter, in due time, deprogramming ourselves in our own personal way. At some point, if we are to continue to evolve, we must first understand that consciousness is a journey, not a destination, that the nature of reality is far too complex for our feeble minds and five senses to ever fully comprehend, and that what is most important for us to understand is what we should do with whatever information, whatever truth we feel we’ve uncovered.

    We see things not as they are, but as we are. – John Milton

Reality is subjective to the observer. What’s true for me won’t be true for you. Not entirely. We all have our own journeys, which mold our personality and ego. The ego in us loves to know more, know better, than others, and cannot accept alternative points of view, even though we often find ourselves battling with people who hate us for our points of view (our lack of patriotism, et al). The ego has no apparent sense of irony, nor shame for its blatant hypocrisy. Your ego would love for you to grasp tightly to some seemingly profound truth, and occupy your mind obsessing over beating people to death with it until they submit to it. In this, you inevitably bump heads with other people’s ego; an irresistible force meeting an immovable object.

The point to this is not to get carried away and distracted by whatever truth you may find, however profound it may seem to you. Understand that no matter what and how much you think you know, in the grand scheme of things you know nothing. This is not something to be discouraged about. It simply means that no matter how much you discover, there will always be more to discover. What can be disheartening about that? How boring would total omniscience be?

    The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind. – Kahlil Gibran

We all have our own journeys, our own sufferings to overcome. We do no one a service fighting over whose understanding of reality is superior to the other. Information is value neutral; if it’s a lie, no one could – or at least no one should – tell you it’s a lie. If you think you know, and someone wants to know, they’ll ask; if we throw it in their face they will shut you out and hear nothing, and only your own ego will find satisfaction. If approached we should not demand they see things the way we do, but rather encourage them to abandon preconceived notions about the way one is supposed to think, or how others may think of them if they don’t conform to what the mob’s delicate sensibilities expect them to think, and just look at the facts with an open mind. If the true nature of reality were as obvious as we make it seem to be, would anyone need you to point it out to them?

Once you get the message, put the phone down. No matter how deep into the rabbit hole you think you’ve gone, it always goes deeper. Ask yourself if what you obsess over is really worth obsessing over, in the grand scheme of things. Does the true story behind Bin Laden’s death, for example, mean anything if the elite are about to crush the economy and plunge us all into a second Great Depression, far more catastrophic than the first? Have you ever stopped to think that, while the elite would prefer you buy their insultingly stupid stories hook, line and sinker like most people do, they still exert a great deal of control over you by directing your energies away from real issues you actually have control over – your own self-sufficiency, your own survival, your physical, mental, and spiritual health, to name some examples? The food supply is horrifically and terminally toxic. The global economy is going to collapse, so that even the garbage they call food won’t be available to you. Donald Trump is running for president. He wants to see Obama’s birth certificate! Anthony Weiner took pictures of his penis and sent them out to other women, and his wife is pregnant! Bin Laden had porn in his “compound”. Which makes the headlines?

Control is illusory. There is nothing more laughable than to think the global elite are meeting in Switzerland, and our future as a species is in their hands. They only have power because we give it to them. Don’t give it to them. Don’t recognize their authority. Don’t even humor them for a minute. Your power is only theirs by your willful consent. The belief that you can take that power back from them is a form of control – it implies the power belongs to them in the first place. It doesn't. Never did, never will. Take a breath. You control your future. You are your own person. Believe that you are free, act like you are free, and you will be free. Everything else is noise.
