Lots of confusion these days. Chaos will shortly ensue. So, where does one stand in times like these? Where can a person place their trust, when the two main opposing forces are disseminating completely contradictory ‘versions’ of reality, accusing each other of duplicity and chicanery and the rest of it, and trying to dupe us ‘dumbed down’ 99% into supporting their ‘side’ over the other?
We were all trained – I mean raised — to do at least ONE thing well: Trust and obey authority. Though many of us didn’t abide very well with that training, especially during and after our teenage years, its influence is ubiquitous. First, our parents. Then, our teachers and school administrators (especially the dean or ‘student counsellor’, right?). Then, the so-called law enforcement personnel. Then, our politicians and government beaurocrats. Along with all those guys, most of us were expected to accept, part and parcel and without question, the ‘divinely inspired’ word of our preachers and priests and rabbis and ministers. ‘Pillars of civil society’ one and all, right? Oh, I can’t forget this very influential little group: The newscasters.
Now, should we just continue to trust them??? Well, let’s look at the situation, the FACTS (briefly).
Who exactly has gotten us into this current horrible mess? Who exactly has, intentionally or not, led us down not only the path to perdition not once, not twice, but continually over the last century or so? Who, after the economic crash of 2008, has not only failed to ‘fix’ things, but continued to make things worse than they were before, creating more wars, more poverty, more strife, more dissatisfaction and discontent – and simultaneously demonstrating less collective abundance, less responsibility, less guidance, and (critically important here) much less enforcement of the laws that were meant to protect us from the greedy and corrupt sociopaths in our society? At the same time, who has actually taken away many or most of our God-given (and constitutionally-given) rights and privileges as natural human beings on this once-beautiful planet?
OK. So regarding this group, the ones we have been TOLD to trust all of our lives, only a single question remains: Who in this world (or any other) could actually be worse than them???
The Other Side
On the other side of the coin, we have what have been traditionally called ‘conspiracy theorists’. I prefer to call them, especially these days, ‘conspiracy realists’. Remember that trippy old movie with Mel Gibson, Conspiracy Theory? In the beginning of that movie, good ‘ol Mel is spouting off all these crazy theories to his clients in the taxi that he drives for a living. I distinctly remember one of them as being about a huge earthquake in Turkey just barely missing putting the president of the US in mortal danger while he was visiting there. If he would have stayed just a few minutes longer on the ground, he probably would have been killed. When I found out recently that Russia, China, and the US have all apparently had many talks about their ‘weather weapons’ over the last few decades – about not using them against each other – I remembered that part of the movie. It turns out that too many of those theories Mel was going on about in the movie have turned out to be actually real (or very close to it, like the MK Ultra program the CIA ran that he was a victim of in the movie). I won’t even touch the stuff he was saying about Area 51 and the ET-secret government connections. . . . . Funny how art reflects Nature so often – and Nature even reflects art sometimes.
Anyway . . . . . those who have been ‘into’ this stuff for years and decades have been putting out a lot of information about ‘what’s going on around here’. The movies Zeitgeist, Esoteric Agenda, Kymatica, Thrive, Loose Change, Fahrenheit 9/11, etc., have elucidated many, many aspects of ‘how we got here in the first place’ – and backed up their research with easily verifiable FACTS and links to truckloads of reference material that anybody nowadays can quickly and easily go look up themselves on the internet (unlike people such as, say, Rush Limbaugh or certain ex-presidents, who don’t point to any verifiable facts or documents at all, but just say asinine things like ‘You are either with us, or you are against us.’ What hubris, what gall! Well, their reckoning is soon acomin’ . . . .). Anyway, should we trust them in these critical times?
Well, maybe. Personally, I do NOT trust them or any person 100%. Why not? Well, while I feel most of those whistleblowers and conspiracy types definitely DO have our collective best interests at heart, some of them may not. Some of them may actually be agents of DISinformation for the PTW (Powers That Were, the Cabal, the Illuminati, Team Dark, whatever – those guys). Also, some of their information may have been purposefully (and unknowingly) ‘fed’ to them by those same agents. On top of that, some of them are definitely motivated primarily not by compassion for their fellow human beings, but by profit. Look at how many ‘survival’ groups there are out there, urging all of us to ‘stock up’ on certain things as soon as possible, and as much as possible – oh, and here’s a great web site where you can order your products right away, and get a 20% discount if you pay cash!

The Third Group
There IS another group of people out there gently but firmly vying for your attention. In the mainstream media, these generally kind-hearted souls are termed the ‘new age’ people, ‘spiritual types’, or just plain ‘nut jobs’ (along with the conspiracy realists, right? Totally different species, but the same treatment by the MSM.). These are actually, again generally speaking, the ONLY group to be promoting a much more positive outlook on things.
Their information does not come from recently released documents via the Freedom of Information Act, nor SEC paperwork that directly implicates deception and collusion among the banksters, nor recently resigned or fired Wall Street big shots, nor deep-seated whistleblowers who have come out of the closet to reveal the once-secret shenanigans of our ‘leadership’, nor even ex-astronauts or military pilots who have revealed their personal experiences with things that officially ‘do not exist’. No. Some of that ‘alternative’ info may be discussed or referred to in their writings, but is not THE most important aspect of their messages. Their information comes from what they claim are ‘non-human’ sources: Angels, ETs, Ascended Masters, Jesus, Mary (both, Mother and Magdalen), God, or various groups of Higher Dimensional Beings. Though they are the ones least assertive, and definitely least offensive, of the three groups, these people tend to receive the most hostility from others, especially conservative religious groups (though they often coincide in their ‘beliefs’ and fundamental philosophies). Interesting, isn’t it?
The Final Authority
Just recently, I ran across something the inimitable Albert Einstein wrote: ‘The Intuitive Mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant, and has forgotten the Gift.’
Wow. That is beautiful, isn’t it? And profoundly accurate, in my humble opinion. I wrote an article last year about the tragic mistake Western philosophy made when it ‘split’ science from spirituality, a la Descartes (see the wonderful and witty explanation in the science documentary What The Bleep Do We Know?, available to watch free on YouTube.). It appears that the father of modern physics agreed wholeheartedly with that sentiment.
Yes, the Gift. THIS is what I personally recommend, after decades of deep thought, reading, reflection, research, and hard-core experience, all under very challenging circumstances. DISCERNEMENT is the key to wading through the morass of information now being poured into our world from every conceivable source. Higher Discernment specifically. Use your Intuitive Mind, folks! Go within. This IS ‘The Secret’, you see, the answer we all have sought since time immemorial. Use your God-given Gift! NOW is the time to do that, to ‘go there’, OK?
Our world is about to explode into utter chaos and confusion — for those who don’t yet know what is really going on at least (that’s still most of humanity, of course). Most people will not have a friggin’ clue as to what’s going down or, more importantly, who to listen to for helping to define the ‘new reality’. So stop looking already! You have, and have always had, the Final Authority within you, you see. Use it! Screw anybody who tells you that the rational mind is King and Savior, and that you shouldn’t consider your Inner Voice as anything more than fantasy or delusion or spiritual mumbo-jumbo (or even clinical insanity). As kindly and diplomatically as you can, simply inform them that you prefer to side with ALBERT EINSTEIN and JESUS (‘The Kingdom of Heaven is within you’) and THE BUDDHA (see quote below), rather than go with what their very materialistic and negative and fearful ‘rational mind’ is telling them is ‘best’.
If you’ve never gone within, never meditated deeply, do it now. Please. If not for yourself, for your friends, associates and loved ones. It will not only calm you down, and reduce your fear and anxiety, and make you feel better about things, and get you in touch with your True Self (hopefully – that may take a few tries) – it may even save your life. And your Life. I mean, if Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, the billions of devout Hindus and Buddhists, martial arts masters, adepts, monks of all creeds (including Christians, of course), and every single yoga instructor on the planet swear by it, shouldn’t you at least give it a try???
Take care, strive to remain calm and centered, be discerning, and above all try to en-JOY this Great Awakening we are all experiencing together. Namaste.
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~ Buddha ~
